In connection with the ex change-of-information part of the atom Pool plan, it is thrilling to notice important concrete steps that the United states has already taken.5 By May, 1955. we will begin bringing scientists from all over the world to 8">ay radio isotope techniques at our °wn Oak Ridge Institute of Nuclear study. We are, moreover, setting up reactor training schools for engineers and scientists from other countries."

They wanted to set an agency that would be largely "I J«erican-dominated and indepencTen'l '" we United Nations.

Inasmuch as we have more wealth and more atomic plants and more surplus atomic materials than any other nation, we will naturally be making more contributions to lhe pool than any other nation will make. But the long- range advantages to the whole world offset any minor concessions that we may make immediately.0 War flows out of a slate of mind. and if the minds of the world can be busied em the atom for peace, the world will slop thinking about atoms for war. This is the essence cef the Eisenhower atoms-for-peace plan. That was one side of the question: \ow for the opposite side—the views of some who DO NOT approve of Ike's atoms-for-peace plan. IHE International Atom Pool plan dwarfs all previous schemes for giving America away to the resl of the world. The atom pool plan will not only give away America's resources — in fact, our most vital material resource — but will also give away our security.7 The President himself recognized the grave danger of an international bank of fissionable material in the very speech in which he suggested that one be set up. lie said. "The ingenuity of our scientists will provide special safe conditions under which such a bank of fis- sionable material can be made essentially immune to a surprise seizure."1 Now, who are our scientists? If this is to he an international agency under the control of UN, will American scientists be the ones to devise this system of security?7 INTERNATIONAL CONTROL One of the specifically advertised features of the International Atom Pool plan is thai ii is lo be international; that it is to be under the control of no one FACTS FORUM NEWS, February, 1955 Peacetime uses for the atom—at upper left, radioactive isotopes seTe" a7 tracer.' enabling studies of electron mission in vacuum tubes and the oenetrn.ion -7 - 'racers, used to treat telephone poles.
