production.” he said.
Present indications, he said,
are that the net fuel costs in
all of the reactors being consid
ered—after taking credit for new
fissionable fuel material pro- [
duced at the same time power is
produced—will be low enough to
make nuclear powered electric
ity competitive with coal-pro
duced electricity.
Noting that five American in
dustrial groups are planning a
‘‘more venturesome” program j
than the AEC—that is, by build
ing five full-scale reactors—
Dr. Lane declared that among
experts estimating the economic
prospects for such plants "the
optimists outweigh the pessi
Dr. Lane's over-all conclusion
for his report was that, "taking'
all available economic and tech
nical information at its face i
value, it is evident that the out
look for large-scale nuclear
power in the United States is
very promising.”
The Russian scientists, besides;
saying that their small-sized!
commercial reactor provides a
starting point for nuclear power
development in the Soviet, said;
Russia’s operating experience
with it “may be of help also to
other countries interested in the
wide use of atomic energy for!
peaceful purposes.”
New United State* Process
Three United States scientists
also held out promise for remote
areas with a paper disclosing;
development of a new "boiling
water" atomic process. They
described it as “an important
step toward the economical pro
duction of nuclear power.”
The American experts, from!
the Argonne Laboratories at!
Lemont, 111., said their process;
involved generation of the steam
for the turbines inside the reac
tor rather than in an external 1
boiler. The boiling inside the
reactor previously had been con
sidered unsafe, but the report
said this had been disproved.

added, are "suitable for use in

They reported that Soviet j
scientists are designing a 100.-

the first station, as well as “va-;

tions with a capaoity of 5.000 1

Mr. Blokhlnstev and Mr. Ni

"In 1953 the cost of electricity

atomic station power is com
parable in cost with that of a

kilowatts of power output)."
(At the official Russian quo
tation, 10 kopecks equals 2>i ;
cents. The price of round-the
clock power in the United
States averages between two
fifths and seven-tenths of a
cent per kilowatt hour. How
ever. the absence of any free
rate of exchange in the Soviet
Union, plus the fact that power
production is entirely control
led and financed by the
government in Russia, makes
any accurate power price
comparison virtually impos
The Soviet scientists said the
steep cost of their atomic power
was due to “the small size of the
station, to the big outlay in
piece manufacture of fuel ele
ments, to the great consumption
of uranium 235 because of the
small size of the atomic reactor
and also to a number of peculi
arities in the design of a station
aimed at creating greater re
liability of operation."

Private Aid Can't Save
Asia, Experts Agree
A variety of experts on the
Far East today indorsed the
idea that United States Govern
ment money—instead of private
capital—is needed to save South
east Asia from communism.
! This theme ran through
speeches and discussions at a
■ conference on Free Asia.
|! The Johns Hopkins University
School for Advanced Interna
tional Studies is sponsoring the
j four-day meeting at the Shera
!lton Park Hotel.
! Walter H. Mallory, director
of the Council on Foreign Rela
tions, told the 400 delegates
today that Asians do not have
;the experience, energy or am-;
bitions to use private capital;
to solve all their problems.
Plan Suggested
Ambassador James Barring
ton of Burma called for “sub
stantial” American aid for Free;
Asia, but urged that it be trans- j
mitted through some organiza
tion such as the United Nations.
He said Burma could not accept
gifts under bilateral arrange
Mr. Barrington acknowledged
that Asian nations have not
welcomed outside private capi
tal. but he Insisted that, anyway,
private capital for such ventures
did not exist.
Ambassador R. S S. Gune
wardene of Ceylon said there is
no chance of Communist expan
sion in the Far East if the anti
communist countries follow the 1
elementary precaution of offering
Asians a better chance of im-;
ence, the Russians said a num-i
ber of other types of reactors can
serve as sources of heat for nu
clear power.
A type known as a “fast neu
tron reactor” ia theoretically a
good bet, they continued. But!
"construction of nuclear power
stations with fast neutron reac-;
tors Is still a remote prospect.”

Uranium Ore
Secrecy Eased
By the Associated Pres*
The Atomic Energy Commis
sion announced today it has
taken the secret label off all 1
technical information on cur
| rently used processes for recover
ing unrefined uranium concen
, trates from ores.
The declassification action,
however, does not apply to the
refinement of the concentrates
into highly purified forms of the
metal essential for atomic wea-,
pons and other nuclear devices.
Neither does it include tech
nical information on any new
and important extraction proc
esses which may be developed.
Dr. John Von Neumann, act-;
lng chairman of the AEC, said
the commission has determined
that the information on early
stage processing of ores no
longer has security sensitivity, j
He added that the AEC has
concluded that declassification
will benefit Its raw materials pro
gram by encouraging private en
terprise to get into the field and

Mr. Mallory said the indigenous
, people of Southeast Asia never
have participated in the manage
ment of competitive, capitalistic
“enterprises, “so the application
[of capital, even if satisfactory;
conditions are created to attract;
, it, will not be enough.”
1 Little Experience
“The end of colonial rule has
left these populations with little
| experience of the free enterprise
systems except to labor in its
lowest ranks for small pay," Mr.
Mallory said, “and there is-very
little evidence of a desire to put

[ is needed to direct and develop it.”
Mr. Mallory, as the director
lof an independent research
! organization, pictured part of
the Far East's economic troubles',
(as the aftermath of colonialism.
He said countries that had
been colonies rejected part of
[the capitalism that had been
[practiced by their European
[rulers. These same ex-colonies,
[however, did not swing all the

Two Senators
Differ on U. S.
Power Policy
By the Associated Press
Senators Neuberger, Demo
crat, of Oregon, and Watkins,
Republican, of Utah, disagreed
today over the Eisenhower ad
ministration’s water resources
Senator Neuberger said the
policy can be described as: "The
cream of the power sites for
private utilities, the skimmed
milk for the Government.”
He said this is well illustrated
by President Eisenhower’s sup
port of Federal development of
the Upper Colorado River and
his opposition to a huge Federal
dam at Hells Canyon.
Senator Watkins, in a sepa
rate interview, dismissed as "aj
lot of baloney” contentions tnati
the administration opposes any!
new, big federally built water!
resources projects.
That is proved by its support;
for the Upper Colorado develop-!
ment, Senator Watkins said. j
Praises Site
Senator Neuberger said the
administration was unwilling to 1
budget any funds for a big Hells
Canyon dam although, he as
serted, it would occupy “a mag
nificent site” and generate power
But the budget did carry
money for the much more ex
pensive Upper Colorado project,
he said adding that it was so
costly "no private utility which
could pass a sanity test would
invest a nickel in it.”
The Oregon Senator said a
high Federal dam at Hells Can
yon, on the Idaho-Oregon bor
der, would cost $357 million and
yield 5.504.000.000 kilowatt hours
of power annually.
The two biggest dams in the
Upper Colorado project would
cost $597 million and produce
4,83 billion kilwatt hours, he said,
adding that the over-all cost of
this development would be $1.7
The Federal Power Commission
[ last week authorized the Idaho
Power Co. to go ahead with three
privately financed dams near the
Hells Canyon site. This would
knock out a federally built high
High Cost Conceded
Senator Watkins said It is true
that the Upper Colorado project
would be too costly for private
enterprise, and he added:
"This is the only type of proj
ect we Westerners ask the Fed
eral Government to help on—one
that private financing cannot
■ handle.”
But private utilities will help
support the project by buying the
power produced, he said, adding:
“The whole project will be self
liquidating. We will pay back
every cent of the principal in 50
years, and Interest on 65 per cent,
of it. all but the part that is
used for irrigation."
The Senate passed an Upper
Colorado authorization bill of
slightly more than a billion dol
lars this year. The House In
terior Committee sliced this to
about $760 million, but backers
never called it up in the House
because of uncertain prospects.
Senator Watkins expressed
confidence Congress will com
plete action on a bill next year.
It would benefit Colorado. Wyo
ming. Utah, New Mexico and
Mr. Eisenhower cited his water
resources program last week as
one of the "absolutely vital”
matters not acted on in the 1955
congressional session.

Legislators Are Quiet,
But Capitol Still Hums
Relatively few employes at
the Capitol feel flustered or
frustrated when asked what, if
any, work they are doing now
that Congress has adjourned.
The pace has slowed and the
din has diminished in commit
tee rooms and members’ offices,
leaving the corridors tempo
i rarily to tourists. Some con
gressional employes have set
i tlqd down to what a House
i member deplored as “a leisure
■ ly. care-free life at the expense
i of the taxpayers.” But most of
those on the payroll give evi-
I dence of having enough to do
to earn their salaries during the
! so-called recess.
I Before the 84th Congress
1 ended its first session a week
ago a Senate-House wrangle
.[over the annual legislative ap
propriation bill aroused appre
hension on that point among
- various Democrats as well as
• Republicans. They warned that
[pay increases and fringe bene
■ fits would lead to costly let
.l downs in congressional employe
[circles while legislators were
lout of Washington, or that
there would not be sufficient
; business to keep people busy
[ until January.
Still Busy
One survey, of course, does
' not make a summer. But the
Capitol and office buildings this
’ week are far from deserted or
■ idle with due allowance for
. the taking of delayed vacations

Predictions of summertime
; laxity centered mainly on the
■ approximately 700 legislative and
custodial employes of the House
and the somewhat smaller group
I in the Senate, as well as the
hundreds of office employes of
• members.
> Contrary to a widespread as
sumption. even at the Capitol,!
i committee staffs are compara
tively small. The House Ap
propriations Committee has by
far the largest with 51 experts
and clerical employes. Other,l
House committees have between j
10 and 13 employes each. Not;
all will be as fully occupied this
summer and fall as the staffs of
the Appropriations and the Ways
and Means Committees. Most of
them, nevertheless, can find a
steady supply of work in pre--i
paring for the next session. |
Get New Duties
Employes under the super
vision of the sergeant at arms
or the doorkeeper in House and,
Senate include some messengers,
floor managers of telephones and j
cloakroom attendants who pre
sumably could enjoy a restful
recess. Their number, however,
is small. They are generally as
signed to other duties during the
legislative lull.
In other parts of the Capitol
and the office buildings, mail
must be delivered, telephones i
kept operating and paychecks
and expense vouchers processed.;
That work is not on the scale to '<
which the more than 50 tele
phone operators, and the fewer!
than 100 congressional postal,
cashier and disbursing office
workers were accustomed from
January to August. But there
were no signs or sounds of delay
or deterioriation in such services
Some administrative aides,
secretaries and clerks in the
offices of Senators and Repre
sentatives may get substantial
pay increases because of bigger
allowances in the legislative ap
propriation bill. Some obviously
are working harder than others
! during the congressional recess,
’ either in the office buildings here
1 or in the member’s office in his
■ home district or State.
In general, according to vet
l, eran officials at the Capitol,
• practically every Senator's office
■ and those of most House mem
’ bers now remain open through
[ out the year. Adjournment of
’ Congress offers neither a siesta

Os School Aid |
Senator Hill, Democrat of Ala
bama, said today he is confident
a program of Federal aid Jo
school construction will pass at
• the next session of Congress.
| As chairman of the Education
jand Labor Committee, Senator
! Hill will have charge of the sub
ject in the Senate His committee
completed hearings, but did net
[act, on a variety of school aid
bills at the recent session.
The corresponding House com
mittee reported out a four-year
program of Federal aid July 29.
but House leaders did not take it
up for passage before adjourn
Feared Racial Row
The probability that an anti
segregation fight would develop
on the floor is believed to h*?e
; been one of the factors that dis
couraged the leaders from calling
up the bill in the closing daysT
Senator Hill pointed out tiff* -
the anti-segregation bill was
eliminated from the military
reserve and housing bills, and
said he sees no reason why it
should be raised on the school
construction bill.
But other observers think 'it
will be more difficult to avoid
an anti»segregation amendment
on the school bill, since the Su
preme Court integration decree
dealt directly with schools.
Aid for Teachers
The demand for aid to educa
tion at the next session will not
be confined to construction of
much-needed new classrooms.
Senator Morse, Democrat of
Oregon, has announced he will
introduce a bill at the next ses
sion for Federal aid for teachers’
; salaries.
On the closing night of the
session he gave the Senate fig-,
ures showing there is a shortage
of 135,000 teachers, as well as a
need for 400,000 classrooms.
Senator Hill said his commit
tee also will consider early next
year several health bills, includ

vaccine program. The bill just
passed to aid the States in
providing polio vaccine runs only
