Transcript What they're saying M about FACTS FORUM 1 would like to congratulate you on the January issue; it is the best yet. After doing a full year of research for the \nti-Sub- versive Committee of the .American Legion, 1 was very pleased to see whal has taken me a year to Irani all summed up in one issue of Facts Forum News. Knowing the importance of petting the facts before the public, I would like to help in my littl- u ay.... Mrs. Marjorie McHale Box 193, Dewitt, N. V. .... The six-months <iift subscription .. . I is] sincerely appreciated. The firsl cop) that lias arrived lias been read with a great deal of interest and is now in the hands of our social studies instructor. It will eventually be placed in our library. Tf the social studies department is as pleased with it as I am. we shall undoubtedly be making it ,1 part cd our library subscription list. . . . C. 0. T, Wieden Vrooatook State Teachers College Pr esq lie Isle, Maine I have recently subscribed to your magazine and 1 Find it so interesting and informing that I have highly recommended it to family and friends. Mrs. Joseph Estenes 45 Park Vve., Freehold, V J. 1 read your splendid paper and applaud your program. Expressed public opinion shapes the destiny of oar country, Constance Brown 1548 15th Vve., S.W., Seattle 6, Wash. For the past -i\ months 1 have received Facts Forum News and wish t<> tell you those -i\ months now seem to be the most informative period of my life. I now have a better basic knowledge to help me in evaluating the events uf each day. Olive G. Scherf l!t. 1. Rockville, Ind. ....Your program on Sunday evenings i- the center ol attraction for myself and m\ family.... Nancy II. II Uliamson 5817 X. Ninth lid.. Vrlington, Va. ....Your broadcasts arc very much appreciated; you are doing a fine service to our country. I look forward to each one of them and am urging people to listen to them. The time ha.1; come for all of us who believe in "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" to stand up and speak out. The ivord "patriot" must he revived lee I- Caldwell Superintendent of Schools 5935 Hohman Ave., Hammond, Ind kilowatts into the grid of the Pittsburgh area, and which represents a large investment of private capital. This is the firsl of whal we hope will he al least "iir reactor a year for the next several years in the endeavor lo gel the cost of electricity so generated down to a competitive basis with power from lhe conventional fuels. Of course, there are places on lhe world map where. even today, such power as we can now produce would compete with ewergv from lhe burning of coal and oil. Yon know of course about the Nautilus, and as soon as her defective piping i- replaced -nothing lhat has to do with her nuclear insides she will he ready to join the fleet. The packaged power reactor which we are developing for the Armv should he a reality by 1958. All in all. we are in the power development field with vigor. THE NEW LAW Item •"> would he the new legislation. The effect of the new law i> one of greal relaxation from the monopolistic pro- \ isions of the old statute. American ingenuity, through American business, can now enter the forbidden portals of atomic energy and. with the proper safeguards, develop it not only for lhe public benefit hut for profit. \\ e u ill he on our way hack to the American patent system. Details of licensing and pricing have been under study and. as they are approved hy the commission, will lie announced—as was done in part yesterday. \ not her effect of lhe new law has been to facilitate atomic co-operation with our military allies on a realistic basis. W c had already arranged in tbe autumn of 195-) to exchange information with them about the effects of alomie weapons so that they might belter protect themselves in ihe event of attack. Now. under lhe new law. we will be able to give them certain othet information as specified in the act. which will intensify our value to them as allies and their- to us in lhe evenl of war. Item I would be the results "f always interesting and sometimes spectacular progress in the use of radiation in the art- and sciences in medicine, biology. agriculture, chemistry and metallurgy, to name but a few. These advances would require a list much too long even to catalogue. The semi-annual reports of ihe commission a new one i- due to go to the printers -hortlv now arc specific and detailed on these Unclassified points. SECURITY OF INFORMATION Item 5. We have greal I \ expanded the area- of free information. Less and less one bears tbe commission criticized for its policies on security of information. W e have published or released lor publication a veritable flood of technics information. Vet at the same time thfl we have relaxed security in areas when' it is no longer justified bv the natun of the material. I am convinced we havj maintained and even intensified our sua veillance over the security of data whin1- under no circumstances, should ever 1"' permitted to fall into enemy hands. It used to be fashionable to scoff I our information security procedure-. believe lhat climate has material'.1 changed. Hut. of course, you are W court of lasl resort. Item 6. The most hopeful asset on t'1' balance sheet is lhe President's propOS* of atoms for peace. I worked on il"" with tbe Presidenl and his staff f°r months before be was ready to announ^ il as be did in bis great speech I" $ General Vssembly of the United Nation in December of last year. And we have worked on it during 8 vicissitudes of Soviel delays and doiiH1" talk. As a start, we have allocated to ',,( plan one hundred kilograms of fissio'1 able material, not of weapons vi;"!'. and lhe United Kingdom has allocate a nol her twenty kilograms. I nder other provisions of the flfl Atomic Energy Act. this material nw be used, following bilateral agrecmefl11 between the United States and ol'1'' countries, to provide the full clcme" lor research reactors in those country Or il mav await the formation "I ' ' international agency, as also envisagj* in the act and as proposed by ,"' President in his \ nited Nations -pet'1 BENIGN CONFERENCE TO BEGIN Ancillary to the President's plan ' the International Scientific Conferee on lhe benign uses of atomic eneif-'j which I proposed last \pril. and wl"' is now definitely scheduled for this SM mer. The advisory committee to I Secretary General <>f the United Nati"'1'' comprising representatives of i «'"'*. nations, w ill meet in New York '"' Monday to consider the detailed pMi and agenda for lhe conference.
