July 24 -P--More ;han 300 laboratories and hospitals are doing research in atomic Â»n- ergy. Congress WES told today oy the Atomic Energy Commission. " The researchers are using radioactive isotopes produced by the war-born atomic energy plant ai Oak Ridge. Tenn. Radioactive isotopes are certain kinds of atoms that science can use for the treatment of disease or as "spies" in chemical and biological experiments. A special committee advises the commission on what institutions qualify to obtain isotopes from Oak Ridge. In two years 1.700 out of 1.742 applications have been approved. At present 100 kinds cÂ£ available radioisotopes are listed in the AEC catalog. The prices charged reaect only direct production costs. About 40 percent of the isotopes are used in medical research. Other uses are medical treatment, plant physiology, bacteriology, chemistry, physics, industrial research and metallurgy. Users of isotopes include: University of Kentucky: Fort Knox. Ky..

Sabotage By The Nation Reds Planned If War Comes Today Snowball battles i:i mid-July were among the incidents experienced by two Frederick Boy Scouts who returned Friday mor:i- ::igi from a most interesting and instructive trip to National Boy Scout Camp Philmont. at Cimarron. Xew Mexico. Wiliiam Renn. son of Mr. and Mrs. Aivey V. Resin, and Charles V. Ross. iv. ion o Mr. and Mr. Charles W. Rosx III. were the Scouts \\ho aisended "he camp wi:h 26 other beys from Maryland. Washington and Arlington. Va. The trip covered 13 das. The group left by train June 29 and stopped first in Chicago where they were on the "Welcome Travelers" radio program, which was transcribed and rebroadcast two weeks later. The group received a movie camera and had a ride in a speedboat on Lake Michigan. The next stop was at Colorado Springs, where the boys went up Pike's Peak by cog train and ran into a hailstorm. Rer.n. who described lhe trip, said the boys thought the building 0:1 the top of the peak was moving but it was just that the Scouts were dizzy from lack of oxygen. They arrived at Camp Philmont. which covers 127.000 acres, at 3.50 a. m. on Juiy 3 and were put through some strenuous training for several days in preparation for a series of hikes. Then for the better part of a week they lived in the open, hiking an ax-erage of 10 miles a day "over mountains three times as big as here." Rcnn said they spent all of this time out of doors, stopping at night at regular camp sites, where tents were set up and outdoor kitchen- provided. The boys had to collect wood, build their own fires and cook their own meals, the food being provided. There were sieep- , ing bags for them in the tents. A fascinating study in nature occurred. As they walked along, the Scouts often saw such animals as deer, coyotes, prairie dogs and porcupines. They killed several rattlesnakes and went fishing upon Â· one occasion, the group in all Sand' ine some 40 trout. They were required to know by sight 10 different species of tree.-. 30 fSo-Aers. 15 birds, five butterflies. 15 animals. 15 rocks and m:n- era's. Each boy. Renn said, succeeded in doing more than was required and received the Scout . Nature Award, an" Indian head emblem which was sewn on "heir shirts. Burros were used to carry sleeping bags and other items and they provided most of the comic relief. Renn said. The animals would refuse to cross streams and get generally s;ubborn. The MiowbasI battles took place on the high ridges which they crossed. On the other hand, most of :he time it was extremely v.-arm and dry and the canteens which :hc boys carried became the most important thing to them. Often. She water would be exhausted be- for" they reached a stream and when they got to the creek, the boys would drink so much some would get sick. An assistant to She leader. Renn said one thing which should be taught, and wasn't, was to identify what plants' and berries can be Â«afeiy eaten. He said it would be an excellent thing if some of the local clubs would sponsor the sending of a Scou: to the camp next year. You meet many boys who are advanced in scouting and get an "inspiration" from fheir knowledge, he said. The group finally worked back ' to the base camp, where diplomas were presented and awards made. The Marylanders came east by the ou;hern route, stopping at El Paso. Tex., and going into Mexico for a few hours. At San Antonio, they saw the Alamo, slept in the municipal football stadium at Xew Orleans, listened in Atlanta to the radio show on \\hich they appeared in Chicago, presented their leader with the movie camera an:! arrived in Washington Friday, where they . were met by their parents.

"We are coing to run down all these complaints, wherever they come from." the New Jersey legislator said.

For example, food is in one group, clothing another, house furnishings another. The prices of the d i f f e r e n t items in the different groups are averaged out to arrive at the cost of living. The. biggest rise in the cost of any group since August. 1939. has been food. It has gone up 129 percent. In the food group, the biggest rise was in meat. It's gone up 167 'Â· percent since August. 1939. j Â· Present prices are compared with August. 1939. because that was the last month of peace before World War I!.

President Truman is pretty sure to ask the special session of Congress for power to control prices. He asked for it last November but didn't get it. Meam hilc. prices have gone up. While this country still had an OPA after the war. businessm argued this way: "Get rid of OPA and prices will go up a bit at first but then they'll come down as businessmen compete with one another. ' The only thing wrong with that argument is this: It didn't work. OPA was wiped out a couple of years but prices have gont up steadily till now they're at a pea... This will tell the story of prices: ' As explained above, prices in this country started climbing after World War II started in September. 1939.

Position Of U. S. In Atom Use Bettered Truman Says We Will Lift Secrecy When Russia Assents To Workable Agreement Washington. July 24 "-P--President Truman reaffirmed tcday that !he failed States will lift secrecy .-urroutiding atomic energy when Soviet Russia and other nations join in a "workable" international system of control. But until they do. Mr. Truman said, he has directed that "every elfort be made toward maintaining she leading position of the United States" in the atomic field. He said the recent tests in the Pacific have shown the American position in the field of atomic weapons has been substantially improved. Mr. Truman's remarks were contained in a statement issued by the White House in connection with an Atomic Energy Commission report to Congress. In its report the commission lifted the secrecy lid just a bit on the recent tests at Eniwetok Â»toll to which Mr. Truman referred. The commission !et this much information out: 1. The "three atomic weapons of new and improved design" tested at the super-secret proving grounds in the Marshall Islands were bombs--not non-explosive weapons, as Tiad bees widely speculated: 2. They proved that "the position of the United States in the field of atomic weapons has been substantially improved." In its fourth semi-annual report to Congress, the commission had a great deal to say about peaceful uses for atomic energy, although it added: "We do not see how it would be possible under the most favorable circumstances to have any considerable portion of the present power supply of the world replaced by nuclear fuel before the expiration of 20 years." The report indicated that the recent Pacific tests were aimed Â»t Retting greater explosive force out of atomic bombs. The atomic qfncials hinted also that the tests did~considerab!e damage to the atoll. The proving ground now is "being reconditioned and placed in standby status for further use." they said. As for peacetime uses of atomic energy, the commission had this to say: Radio-isotopes, by-products of the atomic bomb, "constitute the first great contribution of the development of atomic energy to peacetime welfare." These isotopes, used to trace elements coursing through the bodies of humans and animals and also to treat some diseases directly, "are. building up. bit by bit. a new understanding of the dynamic processes of life." the report declared, adding: 'Â·All told, more than 1.000 different isotope projects are being conducted today, and they d-eal. in one way or another, with every imDorf- ant aspect of the physical welfare of mankind," These atomic by-products, the commission said, are being used for everything from measuring ' the friction on piston rings to treating ' goiter. 530.000 i? involved." the Register ued to fire from the ground with a , of WJls added.

Kenneth McLaugh-in Â·R-Washington' said today he -.vould support or introduce a bill in '.he next session of the Legislature that would void any rule imposed "oy courts on the press and radio in Maryland. Ke said his concern o\-er the court rules came from a proposal that the Baltimore city "rule barring discussion of a case before indictment and trial" be made applicable throughout Maryland." He said he believed the legislature would also act "as far as Baltimore city is concerned." ''I feel that the legislature is opposed to bridling the press and ra- 1 dio." McLaughlin said. 1 In urging legislation at the next session, he said ''such a measure -hould be the first order of business at Annapolis. "I have a natural revulsion toward efforts of courts to muzzle the cress. I have an idea that the legislature is incensed ivith this development."
