Sweeten, 35-year-old coal miner, appeared in a doorway between the kitchen and a bedroom, holding a 10 gauge shotgun. The neighbor youth, V. J.

Britain Starts Drive Aga'mst Communists London, Dec. 22 —(/P)— Britain's ruling Labor party launched today a campaign against Communist ; 'infiltration and intrigue" within the organization, and the Communists immediately branded the drive a U.

Warning that the Communists were out to "sabotage" the government, Labor Party Secretary Morgan Phillips dispatched, a letter to all labor groiips — including the trade unions— in which he urged lat they take the offensive against ornmunist influence .within the arty.

FAY Washington, Dec. 22 — (/P)— Government officials said today there is a critical scarcity Of scientists in certain branches of military research. But they discounted statements that an aversion to working on death-dealing weapons is the primary cause. Economic factors and a scholar's desire for complete freedom in ,-t|,,i-. — mthp r than philosophies- keeps many of them away from government work, officials of the military and the Atomic Energy Commission told a reporter. The latest of a series of statements came recently from Dr. Theodore Rosebury, Columbia University professor, who said "many American scientists are refusing to work on military developments." Atomic commission and military officials said they believe these are the governing factors in the unwillingness of some scientists to work on government projects: 1. Lack of security. Unlike employment in the laboratory of a university or a large industrial concern, employment on a military research project may be of uncertain tenure. Scientists don't know how Inng the job may last. • 2. Unsatisfactory living conditions for the scientists and their families at some of the more isolated projects, such as those in southwestern United States desert country or remote towns in newly developed sections. 3 Inability of the government to match pay offered by private research institutions. i 4. Refusal of scientists, particular!" those interested in pure re- Wyji vork by the U. S. State Department, acting partly through its em- assies and partly through paid gents of the American Federation f Labor. Their aim is to split the unions f France, Italy and Britain. Philps' letter obediently .parallels the actics used by the reactionaries in "'ranee." This obviously was a reference p developments last Friday in ~aris, where the anti-Communist minority wing of the Communist eneral Confederation of Labor CGT) voted to secede and form ts own nalional trade group. In his letter Phillips said the British Communist parly had oincd the Cominform's "cold war" against the western brand of so- ialism and against the Marshall aid plan for European recovery. 'We can expect Communist-inspired attempls to foment discon- enl -in factories and workshops which may result 'in slowing down and hampering the production drive," he said. According to best estimates, ased on recent election returns, mere arc only about 50,000 Communists in Britain, but they hold a number of key trade union »osts— especially among groups so vital o Britain's recovery program as he miners, engineers and trans- jorl workers. Even as Phillips leller was being distributed the Moscow radio launched a new blast against the Marshall plan, declaring its 'essence" was 1 "war." Combining its commentary on President Truman's message lo Congress Friday with a discussion of Marshall's address the same day on the failure of Ihe Big Four talks in London, the Moscow broadcast said: "When the United Slates announced a four-year program of expenditure to revive Germany's heavy industry, her war potential, one recalls another four-year pro gram for the development of German economy — the notorious plan of Goering and Killer. "This plan was adopled in 103G to prepare the German war ma- cnine for Ihe second world war, and (Iljalmar) Schacht was the financial head behind that plan, too. Now we see another four-year plar tor so-called aid to Europe, and again the sinister figure of Schacht The essence of the two plans is the same — war." The references to Schacht apparently were based on stories from Berlin some months ago disclosing that Ihe former Reichsbank president, had been questioned^ by U. S. occupation authorities, oen. -lUclus D. Clay American military governor, later said Ihe interrogation was connected with the Nuernberg war crimes trials and had nothing to do with a plan bchachl was reported to have for German recovery.

A very minor percentage of scientists have given this as their reason to work on for declining government projects. Both military officers and manpower experts at the civilian-controlled Atomic Energy Commission agreed that virtually all of this rcli any motivated by group had a sincere personal feeling, sometimes dictaled by ™ 1i - giotis failh, against war in iorm and were not political views. The greatest shortage in scientific manpower, and one definitely retarding research in some fields, is in certain key personnel, officials said. They mentioned in particular tho need for scicntist-ad- min'istralors who, thoroughly schooled in science, at the same time are capable of organizing and diractint; a large research project. The lack of more, average research workers and technicians is less acute but still an important factor in operation of the nation's military development program, it vas explained. . o Italy Settles One Strike, Faces As^other By J.

No man knows lor sure about the wisdom of it. But that there is an obligation, goes without saying.

The assembly's action took the form of a flat rejection of the pact and seemed to close the door to future ne g otiation. Informed sources here expressed .belief the issue might wind up in the lap of of the United Nations or rjome in ternational arbitration tribunal. The rejection, voted 51 to 0 touched off a wild celebration in the capital. Thousands of persons marched through the streets shouting gleefully: "It did not pass."
