TUESDAY, DECEMBER «, 1948 BLYTHEVILLB (ARK.) COURIER PAGE ELEVEN THE NATION TODAY— Former Air Force Major Hurls Hot Charges About Atom Bomb Materials Delivered to Soviets Jly James Mnrluw •WASHINGTON, Dee. 6, WV—Here we \vcrc, having a kind ol nice, quiet, time, looking forward to Christinas, liiking a deep breath before Congress comes back In January, kind of relaxing, News wasn't much although every day one or two tilings happened around here and managed to squeeze onto the front pages of the nation's newspauers. » , A .couple of (he government's' financial experts get into an argument, or Secretary of state Acheson had something lo say about China, or former Congressman J. ^!rnell Thomas was on trial. But the great rush that goes on day after day wl'en Congress is around was missing. In short, we had no sensations on a day-by-day basis. Then al! of a sudden a former Air Force major, George Uacey Jordan. started talking about atom bomb material being sent to the Russians dining the war. Wallace Hack In (be News Then last night Fulton Lewis. Jr., radio commentator, said Henry althoiiKli almost at once we can sit back and watch a lot of men running for office right from the time tile session stalls. Until then, barring any. sensations, this place may be fairly quiet and peaceful. Maybe, r had to put the "maybe" in ilierc twice, since this is Washington. Wallace, former president, . — ,--overruled' atomic officials during the war and ordered atomic stuff sent to Russia. Wallace retorted: "Sheerest fabrication."

Whether anything conies of all tins remains to be seen. If not, at least it provided a brief -sensation.

He's a cinch to phis again for his civil rights program, federal aid to education,- a compulsory health program, and maybe higher taxes to keep pace with government, expenses. And, probably, once more he'll ask to repeal the Taft-Hartley labor act, Since the stand, taken by Congress — and congressmen — or, all these issues will have something to do with whether they're reelected in the fall of 1950. we'll have to listen to j. lot of talk in ipso and—depending on ho;v you look at K—n lot" c-I alibing for doing or not doing.
