for World Use Washington easier road toward worldwide sharintt of er appeTi P Tuesday with reports discovered how to render plutonium useless for bombmaking These reports Monday said he presented a which urged an international li censing system to control raw ma terials and the production of atomic energy for peaceful uses But the recommendations were quickly overshadowed by state ments 3 senators credited to Ache son that scientists have learned how to denature both plutonium and U235 These are the sub stances which furnish the atoms that are split to release vast pow er One senator who declined to be quoted by name said the problem of sharing atomic energy secrets with the rest of the world may be much simplified if the process is proved in practical op erations He pointed out that if a way can be found to control tightly the worlds supply of fissionable ma terial and if it can be treated to make it useless for explosive pur poses then there need be little fear of the secret manufacture of Abombs But he added that there still is a long way to if the ele ment can be so make certain that it could not be manufactured in the original form in which it was used in the Nag asaki bomb The understanding of all concerned he said is that once the plutonium is denatured it is extremely difficult to return to it its original qualities Acheson gave the committee a report from a special committee of scientists headed by TVA Chairman David E Lilianthal ihe undersecretary said a slate rtmcnt committee he heads indorses the proposals Members said that summed up the report called for establish ment under the united nations or ganization of an authority which would license plants to produce atomic energy for peaceful pur poses The plan reportedly called for the UNO authority to control the aroduction of uranium and tor um both fissionable ores This control would be preceded by a worldwide inventory of mined supplies The report was said to have suggested that the United States after complete security arrange ments had been over to the UNO body the knowhow on the production of atomic en ergy Like those in any other country plants in the United States also would have to be li censed The UNO commission would be process assertcdly would not interfere with iwer for industrial purposes to the senators special atomic eom of State Dean Acheson Mem authorized under

the united nations se curity council Tuesday with Rus sia trying to block a council in quiry into the Iranian situation and in early afternoon the peace enforcement agency recessed with out reaching a vote The immediate issue was whether the council should accept Irans appeal for a hearing and imt the case on the agenda or re ject It At recess the Brllish American position a l parent ly lacked only one vote of the neces sary majority of 7 Soviet Ambassador Andrei Gromyko said in a statement to the council Tuesday that Russia and Iran had made an agreement for the withdrawal of red forces from Iran and that this was Rus sias report to the council on the situation Byrnes and Sir Alex ander Cadogan of Britain wanted Ihe agreement itself filed with the council Poland stood with Russia Cadogan and Byrnes insisted that both Russia and Iran should report on their agreement on the removal of Russian troops which Prime Minister Stalin officially disclosed to the world Monday night Gromyko said Byrnes position seemed to bo in contradiction to the chatter which says that situa tions only endangering peace and security should come before the council The conditions necessary for the inclusion of the subject on the agenda have not been satisfied Gromyko said It was his 2nd speech to the council his first having been a request for rejec tion of the Iranian appeal for council help His Implication seemed o he Iiat the Iranian situation docs not endanger peace and security for he declared that because of with drawal of red army troops under way since last Sunday the situa tion is no longer the same as II was when Iran appealed to the council 10 days ago Russia opposed having the council take up the Iranian case at least in so far as it was pre sented by complaints lodged with the peaceenforcement agency by Iranian Ambassador Hussein Ala In sharp opposition Secretary of State Byrnes for the United States and Sir Alexander Cadogan for Britain declared the case must be heard Gromyko said there was no need to place the Iranian case on the council agenda for further discus sion because it has been settled by an agreement between Moscow and Tehran Byrnes replied that if Russia had made such an agreement it should have informed the security council and certainly he argued the council would not wish to deny Iran an opportunity to be heard Sir Alexander endorsed the Byrnes declaration Cadogans ar gument went beyond that of Byrnes in registering Britains own complaints against soviet handling of affairs in Iran He said Britain has asked Rus sia for information on the situa tion there and Russia has not re plied The United States likewise has received no repiies to similar notes I hope Cadogan said that the security council may be fully acquainted with any agreement that has been made more particu larly an agreement made while foreign troops were on Iranian soil the new explosive RDX Rose communist and member of parliament and Dr Boyer both face charges
