Didn't we win a great propaganda victory by suggesting this atom pool, thus proving that we want to use atoms for peace instead of for war? Examine the facts. The one thing which gives America military superiority over every other nation or combination of nations on earth is its qualitative and quantitative superiority in the production of atomic energy materials. But America offers to give away part of that superiority to foreign nations.7 Americans are supposed to be a free people. Yet our President (without consulting the people, or even the Congress) The US.

What will happen later on, when the Soviets claim that they endorsed the atom plan because Mr. Dulles had secretly promised to let Red China participate in the scheme? Mr. Dulles will loudly deny that he made such promises. But the Soviets will insist that he did. The world will recall that it was Mr. Dulles who wanted the negotiations with Russia to be sec ret. And the record shows that our friends in the UN respect Russia's word as much as they respect ours. In his original atom pool speech in December, 1953, President Eisenhower said that the real purpose of the atomic pool proposal is to turn the world toward developing the peaceful uses of atomic energy so that we can eliminate atomic materials for military purposes. It would be nice—and just as sensible— if the President would go on record as being against sin. The chilling reality is that the Soviet gangsters have already stolen enough atomic energy know-how and materials from us to get started on what appears to be a fairly extensive atomic energy program. As long as they can obtain atomic energy materials, either by producing them in their own plants, or by stealing them from us, or by getting them via the international pool, the Soviets are going to continue building whatever frightful atomic energy weapons they can. No amount of wishful thinking, speaking, resoluting, treaty- signing, or sharing of the wealth on our part will change that grim set of facts. The Soviets say that they want to outlaw atomic weapons. They no doubt do. They would like to engage us in a treaty tomorrow to outlaw the use of atomic weapons. That would guarantee the scrapping of our atomic weapons; but not of theirs.'4 In manpower the Communist nations Page 5 e il
