Acheson has just appointed an impressively disting- uished committee to take a fresh- eyed "new look" at the problems of disarmament and atomic energy control. Dr. J.

It is also hard to think of any major development which has been greeted with such blank disinterest. For both reasons, this attempt at a new "new look" sym- bolizes one of the basic dilemmas of our time. Acheson's decision to name the committee had somewhat diverse origins. On the one hand, a group of leading scientists became deep- ly concerned, a good many months ago, because they thought the atomic armaments race was get- ting out of control. Look Ahead These scientists foresaw the forthcoming explosion of an Am- their forays at Pullman, About also foresaw the eventual explo sion of a Soviet hydrogen bomb. They not unnaturally shrank back from the prospect of a world divid- ed into two vast, contending power groupings, both brandishing -world- weapons.

Carloads of students toured the campus area shooting out street lights but no attempt was made to repeat the panty forays of the previous night. Police halted a potential raid at Auburn, Alabama Polytechnic In- stitute, when several hundred stu- dents gathered.

Hypocrisy Charged Joy told Nam: "Your side continues to display crass hypocrisy on the prisoner of war issue. Never before in modern history has a belligerent displayed less regard for the rights and welfare of prisoners of war. "If our refusal to use force to deliver to you prisoners of war who oppose returning to your side results in delay in the attainment of an armistice, then make the most of it. Our stand in this issue is firm and final." On Red handling of captured Al- lied personnel, Joy asked a series of questions: "Have Red POW camps been open to neutral benevolent soci- eties? Have the Reds agreed to exchange seriously sick and in- jured prisoners? Have the Reds restored to POW status un- accounted captured -Allied soldiers? "You have Joy told Nam II. For the first time, Nam accused the Allied command of violating the United Nations Charter by us- ing violence against Allied-held prisoners.

However, the senators stirred by the Koje Island incidents, question- ed him at some length about the prisoner of war situation. Senator Bridges quoted Ridgway as saying fanatical Com- munists in U. N. camps have -com- mitted atrocities and conducted reign of terror against other pris- oners. Flew Own Flags "The general confirmed that bodies have been found in these Bridges told reporters. He said that in a closed door session with senators Ridgway also said it was true that Communist POWs flew Red flags and had their own telephone lines inside the camps. Bridges said Ridgway expressed confidence, however, that rebel- lious and defiant Communist pris- oners of war can be put under control. Ridgway, former commander of U. N. forces in the Far East, talked with senators for about two hours. While this meeting was going on, it was announced that Ridgway will address a joint meeting of the Senate and the House at a.m. CST tomorrow. Bridges, a member of the com- mittee, said he wanted to question Ridgway about (1) the Red prison- ers-of-war uprising on Koje Island; (2) the military situation in Korea; (3) whether truce negotiations should continue; (4) his estimate of his new European command, I and (5) how much this country AFL and CIO have denounced the proposals. Sen. Humphrey chair- man of a Senate labor subcommit- tee, announced he will ask the Senate to knock out the Fulbright amendments if the banking com- mittee approves them, and to refer them to his group for study. The banking committee, beaded by Sen. Maybank sched- uled debate and a vote on the amendments at a closed door ses- sion today before voting on the measure itself. A favorable majority would send the bill to the Senate floor for what promises to be stormy debate involving the whole vast controls program and administration hand- ling of the steel strike.

Douglas MacArthur in Japan, and now Gen. Dwight D.' Eisenhower in Europe. In NATO, Ridgway will be out- ranked by two of his deputies, British Field Marshal Bernard L. Montgomery and French Field Marshal Alphonse Juin. The senator said he would ask Ridgway about policies. in treat- ment of Communist prisoners of war in Korea that led to the much- criticized events on Koje Island. Bridges demanded a Senate in- vestigation after one U.S. general was captured by the Red prisoners and another signed an agreement with them to release the first. The agreement later was repudiated by Gen. Mark Clark, Ridgway's Far East successor. Bridges said Army Secretary Pace had promised the Senate committee a full report on this from Clark, possibly by Thursday. Sen. Cain in a sep- arate interview, said he served as an assistant chief of staff under Ridgway in "every airborne opera- tion in Europe" during World War II. McCarthy Ouster Motion Delayed WASHINGTON W) A Senate rules subcommittee today post-, poned to May 29 a decision on its next step in an investigation of charges by Sen. Benton (D-Conn) seeking the ouster of Sen. McCar- thy (R-Wis) from the Senate. Chairman Gillette (D-Ia) an- nounced the group at a brief closed door meeting had called for a new report from its staff on ac- cusations the Connecticut senator has aimed at McCarthy in a reso- lution pending before the group. Gillette said the report will be ready for the May 29 meeting and that the subcommittee then would decide what next step to take. ;
