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.

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.

’Unidentified Plane’
Spotted Over Japan
By th* Auocioted Pr*s»
TOKYO, May 25.—An "uni
dentified plane” was spotted
over Hokkaido, Japan’s north
ernmost island, this morning, an
Air Force spokesman said to

The craft was sighted on

Allied interceptor planes could
reach the spot.
The sighting was over the Ne

from the Russian-held Jurile
Island, where the Soviet Air
Force maintains fighter bases.
United States Thunderjets pa
trolling the northern Japan

with Soviet planes which over

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. B. Carter said:
“Unless this is one for the rec
ord, we don’t expect too much
trouble.”
