On that date, presumably, Th« Atomic Energy Commission will have a new chairman in place of David E. Lilienthal, whose resignation is set lor Dec. 31. . Washington observers believe that the need for a new turn in atomic matters may well have been the most important unspoken reason for Lilienthal's decision to quit. Their point is that Russia's gaining of the atom bomb alters critically the world picture. It is now considered virtually certain that there will never be agreement on international atomic energy control between the United States and Russia on the bssis of any existing proposals. But Lilienthal is very closely identified with the basic American control plan, which calls for a rigid inspection system and world ownership of dangerous atomic facilities. Lilienthal and Secretary of State. Acheson wrote the report that was the first seed of the Baruch plan since adopted by the United Nations over Russian protest. American authorities have declared their insistence on the essentials of the Baruch plan so often and so long that it is hard to imagine their accepting «ny proposal that ignores these features. Yet it is clear we must give ground somewhere if there is ever to be * world pact embracing the Soviet Union. Lilienthal knows lie is too heavily committed to the Baruch plan to play a key role in devising some substitute. But as chairman of the AEG he would necessarily have to figure closely in controLpIans. By resigning he leaves the nation free to lake a fresh tack in negotiations without compromising his vigorous support of earlier proposals. Certainly Lilienlhal must have been aware, too, that his departure will make it easier to achi«ve understanding between the AEG and Congress. Whatever one may think of his talents and his stewardship of the commission, it is an unfortunate fact that Lilienthal had bitter enemies on Capitol Hill. His original appointment as chairman was heavily opposed in the Senate In 1947. Last spring, sparked by charges of "incredible mismanagement" from Senator Hickenlooper, his onetime supporter, » long and stormy inquiry into Lilienthal's administration was conducted in Congress. Had he stayed on and won reappointment from President Truman, Lilientha) would have had to face a third stiff battle this coining year. The chances are that opposition to him would hav« been ttronger than in 1947. Though h« itlll might h»v» triumph•d in the «nd, Lilienthal realized that th« controversy likely would handicap the proper handling of atomic affair*. And a» a acurred veteran of many congressional wars, he probably had little taste for another strenuous fight. These reasons, which were not listed by Lilienthal when he resigned, are believed by close observers of his public career to be the basic factors in his decision. Officially, he cited low pay, long public duty and a desire for greater freedom in voicing his views as (he chief elements in his resignation move. But these are rated as secondary by those who know him well. Having won general praise from Hie Senate-House committee which investigated him earlier this year, Lilienthal did not retire under fire. That fact undoubtedly was important to him. What is important to the nation is that it now seeks to gain the advantage provided by his resignation for new efforts at world atomic control and for smoother relations between th AEQ and Congress. /ARK.) COURIER NEWS Class of '49 Not too many human beings get as much attention when they die as did Gargantua, the mighty circus gorilla. Columns were written about him. Johns Hopkins University performed an autopsy to determine Die cause of his death. And now we learn that Gargantua is going to his final reward—Yale—for stuffing. Wonder what Harvard will say. Views of Others Political Clock Has Stopped. Fi/ty-three years ago. a wrecking cyclone struck St. Louis. It stopped a clock on the wall ot » building in the East St. I-onis stockyards. The clock hasn't ticked since, its dead hands point now, as they did then, to 5:27. Twenty years ago, an economic cyclone, a shattering depression, swept over the United Slates. Bold action had to be taken to save the nation from disaster. President Franklin D. Roosevelt rose to the challenge. He launched enormous spending to relieve the distress of millions of our people. Spend and spend was the keynote of his program. And on that note, the nation's political clock stopped. Government throughout the land took up the spending cry, repenting and amplilying and expanding it. Conditions changed; the nation went Into a great war, and came out of it with booming prosperity. Bill spend and spend Is still the one great purpose of government. Have we no leadership which can wind up the political clock, and start It to ticking off sound, reasoned government again. In the pattern ol our American system? Alust we continue under the ruinous delusion that government extravagance, waste, debt, bossing, meddling and restricting will fetch us into a. life of greater and richer abundance? President. Truman tells us that his spending program must go on. He says lie will the next sc.ssion of Congres for new taxes. The last session took us further down the road to socialism. It did so by spending the government into the red wilh a .|5-billlon-dolh lr budget, and By increasing government powers and lunclions. The president Implies that there is no opportunity to cut federal outlays, certainly there is none if the government Is to he ail things lo all men the world around. But Secretary of Defense Johnson Is showing how to save large sums in even such vital spending as lor our military department. And must we go on sluicing relief billions into Europe? Was it necessary to put the government Into a multi- billio/i-dollar housing project, when private building is fast overtaking the housing shortage? These ate just a few of many examples. The clock has stopped on the depression-born expedient of spending, it stopped there tor Britain, for Prance, for most of Europe. Do you want your country to join them?

Every Day Is Christmas PETER EDSON'S Washington News Notebook Lewis Tactics in Current Coal Wage Dispute Fail to Show Usual Results WASFIINGTON — <NEA> — Like the autopsy on Gargantua, psychoanalysis of John L. Lewis would probably reveal a great deal. Anybody who could take the week-end off, to roam at random with pick and lamp through the caverns of the Lewis mind, should be able to dig up many curious formations. There are all kinds of experts on the Lewis mental processes nm- ning around at large. They ascribe definite molives for every Levvis action, and figure out deep strategy which they say the mine leader has been follow! tives. But there Is a decided possibility that all these fine theories are only so much guesswork. The idea that (he Lewis personality (s n crystallized thing, just the same now as it was 10 or 20 years ai;o. may he wrong. Some of the people who have fund got Lewis into serious trouble. And for once, from March to the end of November, the operators stood together. 11 Is the mine leader who seems lo have been unsure of himself and confused. How els» explain his angry outburst and kicking at a cameraman in n Washington hotel?

Since then there have been two k'ing to obtain his objec- other strikes of one and three weeks and two-nnd-a-half months of three-day weeks "to stabilize the indu.stty." This year's roundelay has bc-en all over tile landscape. Various meetings of operators with Mr. Lewis have been held In White Sulphur . - • • Formes. Blnefield. Washington and been up against Lewis In the 19-19; Nrw York. But there have'been no coal scuttle have begun to wonder) real negotiations, if the old man knows Just what he Lewis has slated on: does want, or how to go about getting it. Hence all the stumbling. In past coal crises—there have been 22 coal strikes since World f U'ar I—Lewis has usually stated hist what, he wanted and then gone out to get II. hitting hard and with ly In general terms that his miners should have greater rewards for the industry's greater efficiency nnd higher productivity per man-hour.
