FAY WASHINGTON (AP) — Russia might be able to use a lead in atomic industrial power development as a lever to outmaneuver the United States in the cold war between communism and the free world.

Sparkman <D-Ala) accused Republi- j mother, Mrs. Lewis Spann, for the cans today of trying to brand the Democrats as "traitors" and Sen: American atomic officials contemplated this prospect today in light of the Soviet's claim to have put into operation a nuclear power plant with a 5,000-kilowatt electrical power output. While there was no immediate official confirmation of. the an- nouncement'made by Moscow radio yesterday, there also was no disposition to deny that the Russians had succeeded in getting an atomic power plant into- operation. Experts here well remembered the success of the Reds in producing a nuclear fission explosion in 1949— several years before the time generally predicted. into the atomic field. The bill contains these broad provisions : 1. Authority for the President to Those who lock upon peaceful j in this country. use of atomic power as an instrument of national policy contend: The nation which first succeeds in building practical atomic power plants capable of being as- sembjed in components and shipped overseas will have an instrument to offer power-poor nations such as those of southeast and southern Asia, the Middle East. : North Africa and in similar places. Good Bargain If-.Russia, should be ready first for. the building and export of such plants, they say, she would have a. good bargain to offer small nations which might be wavering between the free world and communism. : This is one of the arguments of those who urge a speedup in the United States' atomic industrial power" development program, to telescope into something less than five years what they say would otherwise be a 10-year period needed to get nuclear power on a satisfactory, going basis. Rep" -W. Sterling Cole CR-NY), chairman of the Senate-House Committee on Atomic Energy. said yesterday the Russian claim underlined a new need for amending the Atomic Energy Act to facilitate power development. dole's committee approved unanimously late yesterday a package of proposed revisions designed to carry out President Eisenhower's program for exchanging some nuclear secrets with foreign allies and for permitting private industry give foreign allies information on j the external characteristics of nu- j clear weapons and to supply them ! data on civilian power. 2. Authority, under congressional curbs, to pursue the plan for a global atomic pool for developing backward areas outlined by the President last Dec. 8. 3.

Ferguson, who heads the Senate GOP Policy Committee, said in a separate interview the Republicans have as much right to criticize what he called mistakes of past Democratic administration as the opposition has to differ oh present foreign policies. "The Democratic party is acting like a crybaby on these matters." the Michigar senator said.
