THE EVENING STAR Washington, D. C. MONDAY. MAY 2S. 19A3 Lilienthal Denounces Federal Monopoly of Atomic Development By the Associated Press NEW YORK, May 25.—Present Federal monopoly of atomic de velopment is hurting both mili tary and economic progress, says David E. Lilienthal, former chair man of the Atomic Energy Commission. Mr. Lilienthal's remarks were published today in the transcript of a symposium on atomic energy held under auspices of the Na tional Industrial Conference Board. “I think our policy, under present-day conditions, wrong," said Mr. Lilienthal. “One of tire strong reasons I had for leaving the public service was to be free to say so. I think the McMahon Act needs basic rewriting; it is hurting our eco nomic development and it is certainly hurting our progress In military ways. “My own suggestion is essen-; tially this: That we apply to I the atomic energy field the same j security standards ... as are; applied by the military services; with respect to other arms re search.” The former AEC head spe cifically cited need for repeal of Section 7 of the McMahon Act, the Federal law controlling de velopment of all nuclear mate- ! rials. Section 7 fixes licensing ( requirements for non-govern ment laboratories and indus tries which desire to use fission able material. “That section must be re pealed before any one can safely and properly invest other peo ples money in this business . . . it was probably a good enough provision when it was written, but is a deterrent at the present time.” London Hears Margaret May Enter Religious Order By the Associated Press LONDON, May 25.—The Sun day Pictorial came up yesterday with an explanation why Princess Margaret is shunning her old gay haunts: She’s going to church instead. “While the Queen has been preparing herself for her corona tion, her 22-year-old sister had dedicated herself with a new vigor to the religious way of life,” the mass-circulation tabloid said in a front-paged feature. “It is no doubt as a result of the Princess’ new and fuller religious life that the rumor has spread that she plans to enter a religious order after the coronation,” it added. The Pictorial said the Princess lately has been a regular church goer and a frequent visitor to the London home of the Arch bishop of Canterbury. “It is known, too, that she is gaining a fuller understanding of the other faiths,” the paper said.

DR.EDWARDS't& u lKs Maryland-D. C. Labor Urged to Increase Political Activity A call to political action was sounded today by Harry Cohen, of Baltimore, president of the Maryland-District of Columbia Federation of Labor (AFL). Mr. Cohen addressed the opening session of the four-day federation convention at the Mayflower Hotel. He told the 350 delegates: “We are not organized as we should be on the political front.” As long as this condition pre vails, he declared, conditions about which labor complains wil continue. Mr. Cohen urged all delegates to become members of the Labor League for Political Education. Urges Ouster of Enemies. Politically, labor has made much progress but much re mains to be done, Mr Cohen as serted. There are many in Con gress and in the Maryland legi lature that do not appreciate the working people in the com munity, he said. He declared the Federation’s responsibility is to enlarge po litical efforts to remove labor’s enemies from public office and elect its friends. Part of tomorrow afternoon’s session, Mr. Cohen said, will be devoted to “political education.” He told the delegates also that a new program will be launched to encourage members to buy products displaying a union made label. Non-Segregation Praised. James A. Cobb, former Mu nicipal Court Judge, paid tribute to the federation and the AFL for putting colored persons on an equal footing in labor organi zations. Edward H. Johns, executive secretary of the Baltimore Fed eration of Labor, presented a digest of legislation passed and defeated in the recent session of the Maryland Legislature. Col. G. L. Evans, assistant engineer commissioner, welcomed the delegates on behalf of the District Commissioners. C. F. Preller, president, Wash ington Central Labor Union, pre sented an American flag to Mr. Cohen, who was also given a flag of the State of Maryland to be the property of the Federa tion.

TONIGHT jSsrs^ m ‘O’ mi NO COVER CHARGE A,R CONDITIONED Three Flooding Rivers Threaten Louisiana Oil Fields and Town By th* Associated Prats LAKE CHARLES, La., May 25. Three flooding rivers aimed their muddy crests at the South west Louisiana coast today, threatening a town of 2,000 and oil fields 40 miles south of here. This city of 50,000 was still choked with flood waters of the receding Calcasieu River which left 15,000 homeless and sls mil lion damage here. Health of ficials were vaccinating for typhoid but no cases were re ported. While Lake Charles and its submerged Air Force base got ready to mop up, the little town of Cameron, on the coast, braced for a water assault at the mouth of the Calcasieu. The Weather Bureau here, in a warning late yesterday, pre dicted water up to 3 feet in Cameron’s streets within 48 hours. 25 Oil Wells in Area. Dangerous waters were fore cast within 36 hours and resi dents were told to protect their cattle. Within a radius of 10 miles of Cameron are about 25 oil wells, each protected by its own little levee in the marshes. Lee Welch, vice president of Vincent Sc Welch, Inc., a Lake Charles firm which handles oil drilling and production, said: ' “Even if those wells were flood- ed they would be damaged very little. Maybe an empty tank or two would float away, but most wells can be shut off quite easily.” The people of Cameron, who live on hunting, fishing and oil, are hardy souls and aren’t wor ried. Sheriff O.
