Leo Allen Honored In Capital WASHINGTON R — The Illinois Republican delegation and other GOP leaders gathered Tuesday night to honor retiring Rep. Leo Allen fR-Ill.). Allen, of Galena. 111., is retiring from Congress after serving 14 consecutive terms. He was first elected from the 1.6th Illinois District in 1932. Highlight of the affair was an} open letter from Vice President| JIV Richard M. Nixon which said in| Se P part: "... you will be greatly I Dec missed by your friends and co.'-j Mar leagues in the Congress, for wejM»y have long looked to you for thei 0 ;its leadership and support in thejJ'. v House which you have given so'&'P generously, so ably, and wholeheartedly . . . .

Battle Lines Drawn Over Nuclear Safety By LILLIAN LEW Science Service Writer WASHINGTON - -Government! centering in rail.-; and steels left| agencies, labor leaders and spe- the stock market slightly clalista tit nuclear medicine appear headed for a major conflict over Industrial nuclear installations «« a potential public hazartt. The Atomic Energy Commission (AEC), the agency of government responsible for the industrial development of nuclear energy, has taken the position that "the probability of reactor accidents having major effects on the public ranged from a chance, of one In 100,000 to one In one billion per year for every large reactor." Labor's position, that of the AFL-CIO, is that the AEC tends to "minimize" the danger and thus weakens efforts to prevent accidents. In testimony before the Joint Committee on Atomic Energy, a spokesman for the AFLrCIO said, "AEC. in our judgment, has not taken adequate steps to meet the radiation hazard problems which we know continue to he serious." The AFLrCIO charged the AEC with neglect in this area and .accused the Commission of withholding "Ihe full truth" of the dangers resulting from accidents that have occurred. By MAX UNITED NATIONS, N.

The 1959 spring rains held the greatest amount of strontium-90 on record. Dr. Lester Machta of the U. S. Weather Bureau told an American Meteorological Society meeting here. He believes the maximum exposure to whatever hazards strontium-90 presents has already occurred. The radioactivity from this fallout product is now disappearing (decaying) at almost the same rate as it is being precipitated on the earth's surface as rain or snow. Strontiwn-90 is a long-lived element formed when nuclear weapons are exploded. It is hazardous to man and animals in that it acts like calcium and tends to concentrate and settle in bone. Strontium- 90 is recognized as a cause of leukemia and bone cancer. Authorities from the U. S. Public Health Service division of radiology and biology recently have stated that the levels of strontium- j Mar fR.'May Rye .70 .70*4 .73% .75% .70 .70% Referring to a serious radia-jjt had a new proprietary drug, meeting, the results of which have ! tion accident at Oak Ridge lAircrafts were mostly higher. been vitiated in advance." j which AEC officials had rte-j A block of 10.000 shares of: So-called Jewish volunteers cap- BOXSTORAGE FOR WINTER WOOLENS , East Coast, than anywhere else in | occasion, is wearing only Irish the world.

Fifteen percent of the total world-wide fallout still is In the stratosphere or upper atmosphere. Within five years, effectively all of this will be down. In the absence of further atomic testing, fallout now on earth on In its atmosphere will decay. As it decays, the hazard it presents to public health will decline. Meteorologists will welcome thej absence of fallout from the upper j and lower atmospheres since it will enable them to use naturally radioactive substances to trace I weather patterns.

And Capt. E. R. King, director, Department of Nuclear Medicine, National Naval Medical Center, Bethesda, Md., has stated, "It is doubtful if it is theoretically possible for a radiation disaster to occur of the magnitude described in the novel 'On the Beach.' "However, it is possible thai smallscale disasters will continue to occur . frequency as power reactors bled." Capt. King predicted trmtt every major city in the United i| States will have "in its vicinity' a potential source of radiation that could expose a large poi-- tion of the population -to detrimental doses of ionizing radiation." His prediction is contained in a paper to be delivered in London, June 20-24, at a symposium on Total Body Radiation, Clinical and Investigative Problems. Forty American communities, from 1945 to 1959, already have H***^ bee"n exposed to the danger resulting from substantial radiation released by a nuclear accident, according to the AFL-CIO. The 40 accidents do not include those involving only single individuals or those which arc military in nature. In April this year, there was an accident at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory. According to the most recent AEC report, more than 100 persons were involved and exposed to radiation from the incident. The radioactive material was spread, through the "installation by the : air-conditioning system. Decontamination is not yetj complete and costs of cleaning! work are estimated at about! W9,500. As a result of another accident t\\o years ago, suit has been filed by eight workers, who suffered higher and more direct exposure to the released radia- jtion, for a total amount of close jto a million dollars for health damages including sterility, sexual impotence, and general physical deterioration. The effects of the lower level of radiation on the other workers cannot be immediately determined. Labor's position is that acei-j dents like this might have beenj prevented if the AEC had ade-| quately and openly analyzed the' I art* ami factors involved in previous accidents rather than r.iinimi/intj their extent and number.
