Fuchs Trial May
Bring Out Facts
WASHINGTON - (A') - The
atomic secrets that Dr. Klaus
Fuchs gave to Russia may result
in the American people being told
a lot more about the atom, a mem-
ber of Congress said yesterday.
This legislator, conversant with
the extent of the English scientist's
betrayals, said he might favor
more disclosures on the theory
that Americans are entitled to
know as much about their own
atomic program as the Russians.

ANOTIER, equally familiar with
the situation, warned against a

enough information now is
available on what the convicted
Fuchs actually passed on to the
Soviets, and whether his con-
fession is complete or altogether
true. Any premature disclosure
might be dangerous, he coun-
Both lawmakers, interviewed
separately, asked anonymity.
THE CONFESSION made by
Fuchs to British authorities was
read by the joint Senate-House
Atomic Energy Committee for the

Atomic Energy Commission.
The second, on April 20, will
take testimony from representa-

THE IDEA is to give the public

BRUSSELS, Belgium, - (a) - Belgian voters decide today

described by the government as
a "popular consultation" and the
words referendum and election

to invite Leopold to return. But
no one is fooled by the courtroom
language. This is an election, and
everyone knows it.

Detroit trade school were charged
yesterday with defrauding the

They also faced the possibility

Pius yesterday urged world-wide
prayers on passion Sunday, March

In an Encylical to Roman
Catholic bishops the Pontiff at-

Members of the politburo
spoke in the campaign for the

Union's policy of peace.
In the light of these statements,

with a strong hint for an over-

capitalism; capitalism does.
