T The New Deal and the Atom , Few positions in our government entail greater responsibilities than those which face the members of the .Atomic Energy Commission, It is not necessary to emphasise the vital importance of guarding our secret knowl- A cdge of atomic fission, and of directing itliat knowledge toward peaceful and 'useful ends. i Nor is it necessary to argue that. the members of the commission should 'be /They — and of thc highest caliber obtainable, perhaps their chairman in ^particular—should first ol' nil be man jpf/incorruptible loyalty to the United' [States. They should possess, among •TotHer things, the highest personal in- 'tegrity, executive riml administrative •experience,-and-the capacity to receive la workable knowledge of the intricate [matters that they must deal with. . I "It*cannot have been easy for Presi- ident Truman to choose the men .Jt'o: 1 'this job. All,of UIOKC sought could nqt {or would not serve. Foij those wlio M:- iceptecl membership renounced personal 'ambition, severed ,bu.siness connections, '.and removed themselves from any ns- jsociation which might cast the shadow jof a doubt* upon their selfish attention jto their stewardship, i Mr. Tritnfan's choice of commission ;members was generally regarded as 'excellent. But, according to the Con- ]stitution's wise provision, his selection {of important executive assistants: inn fa |have the Senate's approval. It was /particularly proper in .this cast ,that jthe Senate should give thorough, •statesmanlike, non pai'tisun considera lion to .the nominees' qualifications. • The. Senate members of the Con- zgressional Atomic Energy Committee •{began their consideration with Mr. •Truman's choice of commission chai'.-- irnan, D;ivid E. Lilienthal, former head |of TVA. But how serious was theil' •approach ?' -" First came Sen. Kenneth MeKellar's • {attack upon Mr. Lilicnthal's fitness lor 'the post. Thip was scarcely a surprise, 'or the Tennessee veteran bears an old *f political grudge against the nominee, lie sought to show, by implication, that Mr. Lilienthal has communistic leanings. The latlcr's eloquent statement of belief in American democracy was an impressive and unquestioned answer. But Mr. Kellar, who at first stood alone in opposition, began to Collect supporters. Senator Moore of Oklahoma did not accuse Mr. Lilienthal of communism, but charged that he was a New Dealer. And the New Deal, ho added, "was polluted with Communi-;t;< and Communist sympathizers." Senator O'Daniel of Texas expressed similar sentiments. Enough 1/ilienthal opposition was in sight, based on substantially the same grounds, for Mr, 'McKellar to predict that the former TVA official never would bo confirmed. H would seem that to these gentlemen the New Deal is the question. Though it is no longer a power hi Washington, its opponents still smart from their old wounds. Resolutely turning their backs on the future—a I'uluru which the very life of this republic may be at stake—a few senators seem intent on paying off old political scores. These gentlemen have the power to reject Mr. Lilienthal if they choose. Butjit least let them do it with winds free of old animosities. TVA palromi{.-u and support of Mr. Koosevelt arc water under the bridge. The explosive atom is not a political football. Is David bilicnthal an honest, intelligent,, experienced man who may be tniKlyd with this grave responsibility? That in the question. Test of True Love The way Hid British arc taking their current hardships and still' being able to joke about them indicates again that there'll always bo an Knglanc'. Rut how are they feeling these days about the king, thc queen 'and the young princesses? If Britons, shivering in their hlack- ntl-out, heatless gloom, can sti'l clasp to their collective bossom a lucky royal family basking in Africa's subtropical sunshine, we'll go. a step farther and predict that, there'll always )jc a monarchy. \ SO THEY SAY In making peace we must think ol much more thnn tomorrow. We must think ol lhc .work! say 3p years hence, when n still unborr. generation will be entering upon its rights and will Judge us by whether or not we have given due thought to them nnd their interests.— British Ambassador Lord Inverclmpel. • » • You cim'l view n degraded form of entertainment mid imuginc that yon are eoitij; to escape sin bccuusc you have a pair or rosnry bends in your pocket or a miraculous medal around your neck.—Msgr.

You're so self-sufficient. ; You always know what's best!" "I'm not crying over you!" she cried. She felt sinothcringly hot from thc wine, and miserable thinking of Mike. "I'm still in love with him," she told herself vith a wrench of self-pity, "still in love with time. , Mike afeer all this She remembered what he 'had said back in the 'Italian place..

(To Bf Continued) ny PETER unsoN MIwY Washington Currrsiumdcnt I WASHINGTON — (NEA>—Ktsiht new laws to regulate subversive activities in the United Stales are now being drafted for early submission to Congress, says J. Parnell Thomas, new lieinibifcaii chairman of the House Committee on Un-American Affairs. . Exact content of each bill has lot been determined. Hut if passed in its entirely, this new code would put curbs on what are considered un-American activities In the federal government, in labor and other organizations, ' or . by aliens and representatives of foreign governments in the United States. . ... , . A"' < *')8 Hie subjects to be covered, as recommended in a committee report, are these: 1. KstnbliKhmfnt of a tie\v D>?- pnrtmciit of Justice division to PWsccut.e subversive elements now operating in lh c United States. 2. Withdrawn! i>r tax-exemption privileges now enjoyed by Con»- iminist. fronts nosing ns educational; charitable and relief groups. 3. Deportation of alien Communists nnd other subversive Miens, with a strengthening of immigration laws to provide more caivful screening of those seeking entry into the United States. 4. Requirement that only U. fi. citizens be permitted to holci oilta' in labor unions subject to ledcr.i! *n\vs. t 5. Creation of an independent Commission W | tn authority "To investigate nnd to order ihe dis- chirge of any employe uliosc loyalty to the u. s. is in doubt, with the further; restriction that only U.' s. citizens be hired b.v'lhc V>v- ernment. 0. Requirement that the Departments of State nnd Justice piftlish every six months the names and Identities of all foreign government agents in the United State.s for diplomatic, commercial or any other ptu-pose. Limitation of a second-class U. s. mailing privileges to iht;:;r foreign governments that grant thc same privileges to thc u. s. K»V- crmncnt in their countries. Sec- ond-clnss mail privileges would n'.so be denied any or|>ani/ation publishing, distributing or promoting un-American propaganda. 8. Prohibition of the use of an alias or assumed name to conceal membership in any organization "COUNTKK-KIHIf'A'nON U," 1'KOOKAM This legislative reform is only one part of the program which Chairman Thomas h;\s mapped out "or his reorganized committee, wi'.h its mutual appropriation of S30.- Hc has great hopes Tor a •'counter-educational" program. The idea is to offset subversive propiv^ now being hur!i>d at the American people. The job >.vill in. done primarily by frequent committ«v reports on subversive activities. Another project is to publish a directory of all subversive organizations, activities and p Thomas says he thinks it would to be about as bic as thr Congressional dircctoiy. whose list edition had nnfi papes. Thomas isn't, saying anjThtns; about how his committee w^. co about investigating the Communist nflucncc in Hollywood, the federal ROvcrnnirnt, labor organizations nnd the outfits thai want to pivi> away thc atomic bomb. He says hn wants to run the- committee on a different b., s i Make it more business-like. Fhst he wants to have quicl investigations made, to prove ho lias aood eases. Then air them in public hearings. That was the technique, says Thomas, in handling the case of the Number One conimic. Ger- hnrt Eisler. It worked perfectly and will be used nRain. H.U'KCKOUNT) Or CRUSADER The new chairman is thc last rc- innimiiK member of the original Dies Committee of 1938^ His interest in .subversive activities crew out of his experience as it New Jersey state legislator. In 1035 the Workers Alliance stormed nnd seized the capital in Trenton to protest Oov. Harold Hoffman's proposals for stntc sales and income taxes. Thomas fought thc Alliance and has been chasing similar out- tits ever since. He is no«- 52. He is of medium height and stocky. HC came out of World War I a captain, an served two year.-, as mayor of AHendale, N. J.. before being elected to t'nc stole legislature. His somewhat violent coloring—dark brown eyes, snow-white hair, perpetually pink face and pate—make him look always angry.
