TUESDAY, JUNE 3, 1954 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGI nva Nation's Top Secret Agencies, AEC, CIA, Now in Public Light By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON (AP) — The government's two most highly secret agencies—the Central Intelhgence Agency and the Atomic Energy commission—manage to stay inconspicuous most of the time. Now they've been pulled to the center of the stage. The CIA is not only this country's super spy organization in other countries but is the coordinator and clearing house on intelligence information in other agencies, such as the Navv A t^WH *• A Y V* T^Vfta A A O4- *- 4- A T\ **.-««. M-t-MM A M. 4- * * Army, Air Force, State Department. Sen. McCarthy (R-Wis), during the Senate hearings on hir, row with Army officials, talked o Communist infiltration of the CIA CIA Director Allen Dulles said tha was false. Dulles once before re fused to let McCarthy questio: CIA employes. The senator's interest in the top secret CIA must have chilled no only Allen Dulles but Presiden Eisenhower as well. McCarthy ha shown a willingness to disregan secret labels when it suits him. A the current hearings he urged al government employes to pump se crets to him. For years the AEC — headed by a five-man commission—ha managed to stay out of publi squabbles. The AEC, like CIA, i protected from the public gaze bj laws laying down the secrecy rule, under which it must operate. Now the five commissioners are in public dispute about how much authority the chairman, Adm. Lew is L. Strauss, should have. In addition the status of Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer, one of the 'world' great scientists, has been dumped in their lap. In 1949, when Strauss was jus one of the five commissioners and not chairman, he favored an all out effort to make an H-bomb Three of the other commissioner! disagreed with Strauss. So did' Op penheimer, then an adviser to AEC and other scientists. Former Pres ident Truman solved that dilemma on Jan. 31, 1950, by ordering all out work on the H-bomb. Last July Eisenhower made Strauss AEC chairman. A few days later Strauss ordered an investigation of Oppenheimer, who, having been director of the A-bomb development during the war, had been investigated before. In December he gave Oppenheimer the choice of being dropped as an AEC consultant or asking for a hearing 1 . Oppenheimer asked for the hearing. The AEC appointed a special three-man board of inquiry to conduct it. Last week, this special board found Oppenheimer both loyal and discreet. Nevertheless, by a 2-1 vote, it said he should not be let in on any more secrets. The two- man majority expressed concern over Oppenheimer's 1949 opposition to the all-out H-bomb program. Oppenheimer appealed to the full five-man AEC commission to review his case, and it has agreed to do so . Meanwhile, the Senate-House Committee on Atomic Energy is holding hearings to consider, among other things, changing the atomic energy law to make the chairman, now Strauss, "principal officer of the commission." This proposal was made by two top Republicans on the congressional committee: Rep. W. Sterling Cole of New York and Sen. Bourke B. Hickenlooper of Iowa. Strauss and Joseph Campbell generally went along with the idea. Opposing it were three Truman appointees: Dr. Henry DeWolf Smyth, Thomas E. Murray and Eugene M. Zuckert. They said they feared it would mean making the chairman boss and the other four commissioners rubber stamps. Under present law all five moc- missioners have equal authority.

King of Swing, Benny Goodman, To Get Movie Biography By BOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD WV-Now it's Benny Goodman, the man who started .he swing era in music, who's get- ing the film, biography treatment. The great" B. G., the King of Swing, has been here to confer with producer Aaaron Rosenberg and writer Valentine Davies about lis life story for the movies. The ilm pair put out "The Glenn Miler Story," and that's why Goodman has agreed to expose his own tory on film. "I was really impressed by the Vtiller picture," said the band eader. "I thought it was the first ime the band business has been roperly presented on the screen. Jsually we're just brought in to o a few numbers and have nothing Ise to do." He speaks from experience. He as appeared in half a dozen ilms, from "Hollywood Hotel" 1937) to "A Song Is Born" (1948). His experiences were not too re- varding artistically, and he resis- ed all offers to film his life until he Miller film. I talked to Goodman and his ilm Boswelis at lunch and found im slightly more talkative than n the past. Although he was one f the leading instigators of a ner- ous era, he seems calm and re- axed now. He's 45, but he still as his apple-cheeked appearance nd is the picture of health. A year ago, he collapsed during triumphant return tour with his Id band. "But it Wasn't my heart, Exclusive Dealers for CENTURY SPRAYERS See Us Before You Buy! Byrum Implement Co. 118 E. Main—Phone 3-4404 the doctors told me," he said. "It was just fatigue. I figured out I had averaged four hours' sleep for four nights. There was too much excitement." He's back tootling his clarinet, but this time with small combos in night clubs. I asked him if he thought the band business would come back as big as it was in the prewar years. "The band business was just like the movies," he remarked. "In those years, any movie, good or bad, made money. It was the same with bands. The business supported a lot of bands that weren't exceptional." The really good bands, just like good movies, still do good business, he said. But the mediocre in both categories die on the vine. The bands are further hurt by the fact that kids don't dance as much as their elders did, he said.

Tex. W-Ma Maverick, champion of the underdog, enemy of pobblydegook and zealous Democrat, is dead. The 58-year-old former New Deal congressman and stormy mayor of San Antonio died yesterday after 10 days in a hospital for a heart ailment. He left mourners on each side of every political fence. Sheriff Owen K 11 d a y, whose brother Paul defeated Maverick for Congress, said: "We were bitter political enemies but good personal friends. He did an awful lot for San Antonio." Maverick, whose friends said he never side-stepped a fight from the time he first went to Congress in 1934 until he died, had a tongue as sharp as the cactus in the country he loved. Coined Word He coined the word "gobbledygook" in a letter to Franklin D. Roosevelt in which he blasted the involved phraseology of New Deal directives. Later he wrote magazine articles about it say. FDR issued and, some an order for simpler government language. Maverick was a descendant of trail blazers into the Old West and in his 58 years had packed experience as lawyer, hobo, business executive, congressman, political reformer, author, tax collector, mayor and leader of his faction of the Democratic party in Texas. He lost a bitter fight for recognition at the 1952 Democratic convention in Chicago when the delegation headed by Gdv. Allan Shivers was seated. Maverick headed a "loyalist" faction sworn to support the Democratic nominee. The squat, dynamic man said his career as a hobo may have formed the basis for organized relief which this country had during depression days. He roamed the hobo jungles in tattered clothes "to get to the root of unemployment" and took his finds and gave them to the national government. He suggested establishment of camps for migrants, homes for juvenile delinquents and a broad- based relief plan. 10, and 11, Block 20, Blythe Addition.

Russian Chess Team Won't Have Top Player NEW YORK W~A Russian chess team, expected here for a tournament with an American team starting June 16. will be without its No. 1 player, world champion Mikhail .Botvinnik. Harold M. Phillips, who arranged the match, reported yesterday that Botvinnik had been dropped from the team but all efforts to find out why had been fruitless. Phillips, president of the United States Chess Federation, said Botvinnik is a frail man and shows great tension when he plays. "My own belief is that Botvinnik's health would not permit him to come." he said. The champion's absence, he said, increases American prospects for victory.
