FRIDAY, AUGUST 21, 1053 BLYTHEVII.LE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE FIVE AEC Chairman Says:-— Atomic Stockpile no Longer Deterrent to Aggressors By EDWIN B. HAAKI.VSON WASHINGTON (AP) — Chairman Lewis L. Strauss of the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) says, "It is idle to assume that it is beyond the capabilities of our potential enemies to develop atomic weapons with a tremendously destructive capacity." "It also is a fallacy," he said, "to assume that a stockpile of atomic weapons in our hands is in itself any longer a complete deterrent to aggressive action."

Strauss made the statements in | a letter to Sen. Wiley (R-Wis,n dated Aug. 19 and evidently written a few hours before Moscow announced that a type of hydrogen bomb had been exploded in a Soviet experiment. The AEC chairman shortly thereafter issued a statement confirming that U.S. monitors had detect- viet, on Aug. 12, and that it in- ed an atomic explosion in the So- eluded "thermonuclear" reactions —the scientific name for the hydrogen fusion process. POWs His letter, made public today by Wiley, crime as members of Senate-House Atomic Energy Committee who could get here were assembling for a closed session to discuss "current events. Obviously, the latest Soviet atomic development'was the big item on the agenda. Asked to brief committee members were officials of Strauss* commission, and of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). One Member Skeptical It seemed doubtful that there (Continued from Page 1) north Friday for the second straight day, but more were scheduled to be handed over Saturday. Typhoon winds earlier in the week halted shipments from the Allied island prison camps off Southern Korea. The Americans returning Friday would be much elaboration, for the public, on Strauss' statement of early yesterday, which said' the United States had produced in 1951 and 1952 atomic tests the same sort of reaction detected in the Aug. 12 Soviet blast. Rep. W. Sterling Cole (R-NY), chairman of the Atomic Energy Committee, said "we must as- iume" the Soviet claim of having ested a type of H-bomb is true, but Rep. Hinshaw (R-Calif), member of the group, said he doesn't believe Russia has such a >omb yet. Views Asked Wiley, in New York as a delegate 3 the United Nations General As- embly, said Russia and the United itates should try anew to reach basis for agreement on control of .atomic weapons and world disarmament. The correspondence with Strauss was made public by the senator's office here. Wiley, Senate Foreign Relations Committee chairman, had written Strauss to ask his views on vulnerability of this country to possible atomic attitck, saying many people live in "a fool's paradise" believing that possession of more atomic bombs would prevent an enemy attack. . "The destructiveness of atomic weapons is such that no one with any feeling of responsibility for the . nation's welfare and his own and j his family's safety can afford to dismiss, or ignore, or minimize the impact," Strauss replied. Strauss said he agreed with Wiley that "The public generally should know everything that can be revealed that does not compromise military information and that concerns the nature and threat of atomic warfare." He added: "The public should also have the Then, most thorough familiarity with moving civilian defense requirements, and the apathy which has characterized this area in past years must be dispelled." RIOT (Continued from Page 1) 'orever sightless. The other two were not wounded seriously. were in high spirits, but they also bore more reports of Red brutality and mistreatment, especially against Allied airmen. The Reds were "death against American aviators" said Cpl. Phillip E. Rogers of Denver. He said one Navy flier from the U. S. Carrier Leyte was stripped to a light shirt and summer pants, and forced to remain outside in 25 below zero- weather. Another repatriate told of a mentally-ill American soldier tied to a tree outside the hospital at Camp 1 and left there until he died. "I think they tied him to that tree and let him die there because hey just did not want to take proper care of him,", said Cpl. Melvin R. Heath of Indianapolis. Captives Machine Gunned Others told of beatings lor minor nfractions of prison camp rules, imprisonment in dungeons and small cages for men who opposed Communist indoctrination, lack of food and medical care, and small groups of FOWs who collaborated with the Reds and informed against their fellow Americans. Cpl. Gildo Rodriguez of New York City said he saw Communists machine gun five truck-loads of wounded American POWs just .fter they had been captured. He said he thought it possible the Reds were confused and thought they were firing at Allied vehicles because they riddled the drivers' cabs as well as the canvas-covered truck bodies. Another American said 50 Americans were "blown to bits or buried alive" when American planes attacked an unmarked area where :he Communists collected POWs before moving them north to prison camps. Cpl. Donald W. Manuel of Racine, Ohio, said the Reds knew the area of Korean huts was under daily attack as a military target by Allied planes, but refused to mark the area as a POW camp. The group repatriated Thursday included the highest-ranking Alliei officer yet turned over—South Ko rean Col, Lim Ik Soon, assistan division commander of the ROK Capitol Division. He was capturec In mid-July. C. OF C. (Continued from p«ge 1) accessions. (4.)

The Communist-led General Confederation of Labor (COT), left out of the negotiations, had not yet indicaied any end to Its walkout. The COT controls the bulk of the railroad workers and transportation officials said the lines could operate only on a reduced scale without its members. The agreement between the government and the two non-Communist unions followed two days of negotiations prodded by a delegation from Laniel's own MRP (Popular Republican Movement) party.
