I well remember how my
mother, when her heedless boys
crashed some treasured bit of
Bric-a-brac to the floor, would
exclaim it had been “smashed to
WW";
Whether that expression was
her own, I do not know. But I
thought of it again last Saturday
at David E. Lilienthal’s press
conference in Richland. Lilien

My mother never had too much
peace of mind. Fortunately, how

At the time of his appointment
our press was full of speculation,
charge and' counter-charge about
David E. Llilienthal. From a
cursory reading of the news, it
was easy to conclude that here
‘was a man who greatly wanted
lan attractive job. Some of us
wanted to give it to him. Others
dwarfed. to. withhold it.
That must have bhen quite
a general impression.
Actually, as I heard him handle
the rapid fire questioning of
reporters with consumate tact
and courtesy, I revised my
opinion.

It just looks like another
