Russia's Atomic Secrets The statement of Werner Heisenbevgj Gcrinan atomic scientist, that three of his most eminent German colleagues are working i'oi\thc Russians is not unbcliovab'e, or even surprising-. Neither is his clitim that. after reading Uie Smytlie report ha knew "exactly what was (lone, except for some small technical details," in making the American atomic bomb. There is an interesting comment on this piece of news—though thc comment preceded the ncw.«—in Louis Ridehour's review of a new iorgrapliy of Alert Einstein in the New York times. , Saicl Mr. Ridenotir: "Nuclear phy- cis, one of thc most recondite branches of fundamental science, is currently a political lootball. We are now besot with spy-mania and love, of scci'ecy to such an extent that it will come as a tlis- tince shock to the public, tlu-co or four years hence, when, the fi-st atomic bomb is set off by Russia. This phenomenon will be attributed to 'leaks' of information from disaffected scientists, not to the, W nll- "" "known fact that men who ask a given question of nature always get Hie same answer, whatever, tin-;,- national- .ity." One may disagree with Mr. Rid c 7~ nour's dim view of the fiil lu - c without ' quarreling with the soundness of his observation. For it does seom evi(lent that most of our atomis secrets must be in the fields of engineering and production, rather than on physical reaction. Even those of us who know as little about isotopes and neutrons as Senator McKellar suspects at times that the Russians at least know how to make an atomic bomb. It would ! JC more pertinent, perhaps, to know whether they have the raw materials, power ati.'d huge industrial setup nccessarv for the undertaking. " ' ' Then there is always the r ,, ss ibilit v that Russian scientists, with German ,^_ help, arc seeking a differen^ourco of atomic energy and cheap,,, w avs of releasing- and controlling it. In other words, R ussi , has atom,c secrets of her own. And it is up to our OW1 , sc j en[ j sts t() h and on the job until an inlernatiomil system of atomic energy control is et up and functioning.

So a great American thinker. Emerson wrote about government spendin.i. ninny year ago, . ire, nntl others of Ills lime, ou?!il to see how the citizen's money Is flung around toady. Government was simple then, and It the people only n trickle of Ihelr cni-nlngs. But now, government, national state and local, has n fingci In cvrrythihfr, and it pours out money In a. vast, flood, which costs the nation alx-nt one-third of Us earnings In taxes. Arkansas has Joined in this .ending fury, with little thought of Die troub.7 || may he storing up for the future. The 1 voters of prudence arc lost in Ihe clamor of Has group and thai one for bigger appropriations An on-with- the-clance, let-tomorrow-lakc-care-of-itself spirit Is in command. Evierybody, every group, rhni wants more money gets an attentive hearing. Ijlirscr fluids arc voted us 11 the state treasury were bottomless. The clamor for spetidihn di'owns out tile whisper for ( >conomy | to which the warnings of even a few year af;o against free am! easy appropriations have sunk. Public vmstcs of the people'': hard-earned money, which have been pointed out time and again, are ignored today. The idea now is lo charge thcs» wastes up to the citizen. Loi him economize, let him deny his family tilings actually needed, so he can fork ovef taxes to pay the cost of \vnsle In public affairs. As an example, hut not by iny means tile only one, there are our county governments. They are coming In to the slate for more and more money—and getting It. Meanwhile, they are wasting millions of dollars in poor organization for their functions ani over-costly methods. ' f/ Not so long ago, Dr. c. O. BVaniicn, 1st at the itatc university, declared thnt a million dollars a year could Uc save:! on the cost of our county governments. The sum would be srenter now. Among Dr. Brannoiis suggested remedies were these. Put all officers on salaries, and do nway with tile fee system of virtually letting them fixe their own ;ny while also hiring unnceded deputies; combine Hie county and circuit clerks' office; and transfer the making to tax books from Ui e county clerk to the tax assessor. An amendment to the constitution would be needed to revise our county government to a more efficient pattern, why, for cxiunplc, should small counties maintain nil the offices of Ihe large ones? The legislature could 'perform tew services more useful llian to submit ti corrective amendment. No long study Is no-Mcd to point the way. The defects are well known. Somehow, we must keep all public spending within bounds. Jt will take courage-courage to stand for the people, and the bc.-t interests of the slate, if |his courage Is lacking, (he people will sooner or later supply it. T.-vsj arc getting fed up with the policy of spcndir,,: them into a hard clay of reckoning. —ARKANSAS tiBMOCRAT. . • • ••>• •'••*• •'* **-, ^J |S Ifsfffl ' •—•-. •&>• ^m ^••^-:->.-.^ -iffy &£&}!.

KnsnN.- _ ... BY 1'ETElt «..„.,„„ XK<» .Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON, Mar J—(NEA> -So Sen. Bob Tart of Ohio says ave Lillcnthnl Is "a typical pow•-hungry bureaucrat." Vee-rryy cry intcrestin'. Of course Senator Taft i^n't ower-hungry himself. All Tart ants is to be President of the nltcd States. And n s everyone nov.'s, thero is no power in tha •csldency. 'nils rnlses n nice question. Just 'w much Is a lypicnl, ambitious, ower-hungry politician to be fear- 1? yVs to what kind of a typlcRl, nbihous. power-hungry eiiator Taft mtght be. a little right, white, and merciless pub- •nly on ihe rccprd may be ro- aling. One of the principal purposes ol st year's Congressional Rcorga- zallon Act was to divide up the work of senators and cont;iTs.siJieii and give them air something important to do. For years thc old- timers with the most seniority have bad a half-Nelson on all the good jobs In congress. Very definitely tne Intent of the consrcssioiul streamlining bill wa s to break up this hold on political power Nn senator was to be n member of more than two st/nding committees, nor a chairman ol more than one. IJFADS THREE COManTTEKS Today, however, Senalor "raft holds^rmrrc power than any other member of the Senate. H e Is chairman of UKOC committees and member of a fourth. As chairman of the Committee on Labor and Public Welfare — which was his- choice of the chair- in.-.nships—Taft will handle legislation of most Interest to the voters of in-18. If Talt can write the labor, health, education. a n ( i social security laws of the country, he will have tremendous Influence in thc :iext presidential election. As his second standing committee membership. Taft chose Finance. That committee writes the tax laws. As ranking Republican member of that group, Taft. can play an important part in reducing taxes. Again it gives him power over Issues of primary concern lo voters In the next election. On lop of these two jobs, Taft maneuvered himself into chair- i mnushln of the Republican Policy Committee, presiding over affairs of-the majority caucus gives him | direction of the whole Icgislattvc [program. Party policy on every , major issue is here decided. I jFor his third chairmanship. Taft, |ggt the top job on the important new Joint Committee on the Economic Report. This job'^as not just wished on Taft by Ills admlr- | ing colleagues. Taft went out af- I tor it. He asked Ohio Congress- ' man George If. Bender to nominate him. a nd he buttonholed all I be Republican members to vote for him. LITTLE TIME FOR ECONOMIC REPORT As a mutter o( record. Taft hits had little tiinc for this fourth committee. For this year, Taft has kissed off its responsibilities. Another senator with more time on his hands could have assumed this chairmanship and given the Economic Report Hie attention it should have had. if anything is or can be done by Congress to stave off depression, it will probably ue done by his committee. But TaH would not let go of a single position that would build up his power. In this respect, Senator Taft Is at pur with Democratic Sen. Kenneth Mckellar of Tennessee, his partner in opposing the nomination of Lilienthal to be head of the Atomic Energy Commission. As chairman of the committee on Post Offices. McKellar long held power over the appointment of every postmaster in the United States. It was a position of great influence. McKellar gave his approval to other senators fbr political favors rendered and traded in n notorious misuse of political power. McKellar had hoped that he might have similar power over appointments to top positions and appropriations of the Tennessee Valley Authority. When he was thwarted, h e turned against Da H Tjilieiithai ' as TVA director five years ago, and he has been against him ever since.

Sherover switched hts cignr to Ihe other side of his moulh. "I can save Lana Turner," he announced, dramatically "How?" "Latin's salvation lies In my system of Icarnini! foreign languages."
