BLYTHEVILLB (ARK.) COURIER NEWS WEDNESDAY, JTTN1 9, 1H4 Washington's Spirit of Suspicion Continues to Creep into AEC Issue , • . By JAMES MAR LOW WASHINGTON (AP) — It's hard to caise astonishment, with new misgivings about Jommunist infiltration of the government. Thi; city has become a breeding ground for doubt tnd suspicion. . ,,.,_But it happens. It happened twice within a few days and in both cases, one real and on« imaginary, the misgivings involved the Atomk Snergy Comn«»won, which directs the nation's whole atomic program. British Sailor Found Dead In Speeding Train Early last week a special board of inquiry, found that Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer, one of the World's great theoretical physicists, was loyal, highly discreet, a great keeper of secrets but — The board decided 2-1 Oppenheimer no longer should be entrusted with secret information by the AEC. Oppenheimer directed this country's development of the A-bomb during the war and has been * consultant to the AEC ever «ince. The full five-man AEC has decided to review the board's ruling. A few days later Rep, W. Sterling Cole (R-NY) raised a nightmarish question about the AEC, whose members are picked by the President himself. This was it: suppose someday one or more of the five commissioners should turn out to be a security risk and not entitled to all the atomic information given the other commissioners. Cole is chairman of the Senate- House Committee on Atomic Energy, which acts as watchdog on the'AEC. The committee is considering an mdministration bill to make some changes in the basic Atomic Energy Act passed in 1946, All five members of the AEC have testified. One of them, Thomas E. Murray, said he would like the law, if it is amended, to say clearly that "all members or the commission shall have equal authority and responsibility . .. and full access to all information." Murray, together with Henry D. Smyth and Eugene M. Zuckert, had been appointed to the commission by former President Truman. President Eisenhower has appointed the other two: Adm. Lewis L. Strauss and Joseph Campbell. The three Truman appointees voiced fear that some of the language in the bill—saying the chairman, in this case Strauss, should he the "principal officer"—would make Strauss a czar and cut the other members out of some vital decisions. Murray expressed opposition to this idea and complained that Strauss had taken a number of actions without consulting the other members. At this point cole stepped in to say he was willing for the law to say all the members of the commission should have equal responsibility and authority, as Murray suggested. But he added: "I am not quite so willing to accept the latter part of it (Murray's suggestion that all five members "THEY CO THROUGH THE AIR . . .''-Siegfried Cirnarro, a well-known German trapeze artist, who was grounded because of an injury several years ago, has found a way to compensate for his idleness.

A refugee from the Soviet tone, Cimarro uses his sister's West Berlin apartment to put the youngsters through the paces. RUGBY, England (#>•—The naked body of an 18-year-old sailor was found in a tightly fastened plastic clothes case last night aboard a speeding Blackpool-to-London train. The dead youth, John Barber, was discovered in a washroom by the conductor, who noticed that the compartment had been engaged for more than an hour. The conductor forced the door. Slumped on the floor, with the semitransparent traveling wardrobe fitted around him like a glove, was the young seaman. His clothing lay strewn on the floor. The train was stopped here and a doctor called. He gave the cause of death as suffocation. Although puzziea over how the case came to be fastened air tight, police investigators said they had no reason to suspect foul play. A railway official told reporters: "The lad semed to have breathed all the air inside the plastic covering, and it had contracted around him like a second skin." Young Barber was returning to | his duties on the Royal Navy air- j craft carrier Implacable after a furlough. HONORED—David Dietz, Scripps-Howard science editor, is the winner of the 1953 Albert Lasker Medical Award for newspaper medical reporting. He was selected for his series of articles on progress in the care of iron lung patients in regional respirator centers. The award is $500 and a silver statuette of the Winged Victory Samothrace, symbolizing victory over death and disease. have equal access to information). Why shouldn't all five commissioners, if they're going to run the atomic energy program, have full knowledge of what's being planned and done? Cole said because it would "render helpless a commission which at some time in the future by majority vote might determine" that one or two of the five commissioners should not have certain information. At this point Rep. Chet Holifield (D-Calif) said he was "astounded." He asked Coje if he meant to suggest that someday some individual member of the AEC itself might be considered loyal and discreet but a security risk. Cole said he had something like that in mind. So. instead of having the law say all members must have all information on the atomic program, he said a majority of the board should decide who [QUESTIONS and ANSWERS WHAT IS AN "OPEN" MEETING? An open meeting of A. A. is a group meeting that any member of the community, alcoholic or non-alcoholic, may attend. The only obligation incurred is that the names of A. A. members not be disclosed outside the meeting. A typical open meeting will have a "leader" and other speakers. The leader opens and closes the meeting and introduces the speakers With rare exceptions, the speakers at an open meeting are A. A. members. Each, in turn, may review some of his drinking experiences which led to his joining A. A. Or. may give his interpretation of the recovery program and suggest what his soberity has meant to him. All views expressed are purely personal, since no one in A. A. ever speaks for anyone but himself. WHAT IS A "CLOSED" MEETING? A closed meeting is limited to members of A. A., or to anyone who has a drinking problem and who wants to fellowship with A. A. but has never before attended any A. A. meeting and wants to learn something about the recovery program. These meetings are usually conducted with maximum informality and all members are encouraged to participate in the discussions. The closed meetings are of particular value to the newcomer since they give him an opportunity to ask questions which may be troubling him and to get the benefit of the "older" member's experience with the recovery program. It is suggested that newcomers attend as many closed meetings as possible as tie or she can find more 'answers' to their problems in meetings of this type. REMEMBER THIS: Anyone with a drinking problem is welcome to any A. A. meeting, whether it be open or closed, as the only requirement for membership is an honest desire to stop drinking. .

If he had carried his thinking one step further it would have come to this: maybe someday a majority of the five-man AEC might be security risks for, if one or two could be risks, then three or four or all five might be.
