FRIDAY, JTJLY SB, BLYTHEVILLK (ARK.) COURIER PAGE THRE1 Senate Overworks Free Debate Rule By JAMES MAELOW WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate, proud of its rule which lets a member talk till he's'speechless, is working the rule overtime. It has been talking steadily, all day and all night, around the clock, since Wednesday morning on atomic energy. It probably will still be talking on this next week. Sen. Knowland of California, Senate Republican leader, made up his mind he'd get action on the administration's bill to make some major changes in the atomic energy law if he had to keep the 96 senators, including himself, in steady session to the point of exhaustion. His challenge was taken up' by a number of Democrats and Sen. Morse, Oregon Independent, who don't like the changes and probably wanted to show him they couldn't be pushed. They've done most of the talking. And they've had plenty of excuses for talking. The atomic energy act, passed in 1946, is the basic law on the development and control of atomic power for both military and peaceful uses. That act contains 21 sections. The bill now before the Senate would make changes in all 21 sections. Field Day And while one senator might be willing to buy one change, but not another, and since the Democrats as a group don't like the bill as a whole, they're having a field day arguing against the bill, piece by piece. Although Knowland is determined he'll keep the Senate in session until the bill is settled, one way or the other, and he hopes it will be settled in favor of the administration, he's up a bit of a tree. He had hoped the Senate could wind up its year's work by the end of July. In fact, he had planned on it. His schedule is getting booted out the window. And that isn't all. The House was to begin debate on the same bill on its side of the Capitol today. Since there is a limit on debate in the House, that chamber should make up its mind, for or against, pretty fast. But if it passes the bill and the Senate doesn't, there won't be any changes in the 1946 law. If House and Senate both pass, and changes voted into the bill in both chambers are not identica-l, then they'll have to set up a joint committee to iron out the differences. And when that's done, if it can be done, the compromise bill lands back in both Houses for final approval and there may be more rumpus. The atomic energy act of 1946 was passed only shortly after Congress and the people had discovered they had a strange, new and startling possession that could work for the good of mankind in medicine and power and for his destruction with the bomb. The United States, at the time, had a monopoly of atomic weapons. Many Change The law was built around that monopoly: To guard the secrets of the bomb and atomic energy. Even friendly nations, under the law, could not be let in on those secrets. And the government was given a monopoly on developing atomic power. In the eight years since 1946 there have been great changes: Russia developed the bomb on its own. Some of the Allied developed atomic energy. There were scientific and technical advances. So the Joint Committee on Atomic Energy—made up of House and Senate Democrats and Republicans —finally produced the bill now" before the Senate to make changes in the 1946 law. Here are some of the major ones: 1. Let the President share information, now secret, with Allied nations on nuclear weapons and their use in future defense or possible wars. 2. Let the President disclose peaceful atomic information. This would include the Russians. The President suggested international sharing of peaceful atomic information last year. 3. Loosen up on the present tight security regulations on atomic information so industry and public and private businesses and agencies can do research and get into expected commercial development. 4. Designate the chairman of the five-man Atomic Energy Commission—now Lewis Strauss—as its "official spokesman." 5. Let the AEC issue licenses and patents in the field of nuclear facilities and developments. The Democrats have been particularly banging away at Nos. 3, 4 and 5. They've expressed suspicion that a few big private concerns could get a monopoly hold in a field which has cost the government billions of dollars to develop so far.
