Atomic Legal Problems
EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the sec-
ond in a series of articles dealing
with Phoenix Project progress design-
ed to give a picture of research ef-
forts in both the physical and social
sciences. Today's article explains the
project's studies concerning the legal
aspects of atomic energy.
By MIL PRYOR
Can a malformed person whose
grandfather was exposed fifty
years ago to excess atomic radia-
tion while working, collect dam-
ages from the company respon-
sible for his condition?

sources here believe President-
elect Eisenhower will find Britain
reluctant to go along if he de-
cides to heat up the Korean War.
Energy has been set up to help
solve such legal brain twisters and
also to determine the various
changes and reinterpretations in
the lawr that atomic energy will

THE PROJECT directed by a

Samuel D. Estep, Prof. Roy L.
Steinheimer, Prof. William B.

versity's $6,500,000 Phoenix Proj-

The project has been broken
down into ten different divi-
sions: the history of the Atomic
Energy Act, powers of the AEC,
censorship problems connected
with scientific information, pat-
ent rights, rule-making powers
of the AEC, liability for injury,
community management, and
peacetime atomic energy and
Approximately $25,000 has al-
ready been spent in research thus
One of the most unique aspects
of the whole atomic energy field
is determining how injuries ac-
quired while working with atomic
radiation should be handled.
As the law now stands, a sta-
tute of limitations makes it im-
possible to collect for injuries
received any great time in the
past. However many effects of
radiation do not appear until
some time after they occur.
Although studies are not com-
plete, indications are that the
project will suggest a relaxation of
the laws in this case and perhaps
the setting up of some type of
board to determin proper pay-

Hit by Taft
WASHIN~GTON - (' - Sen.
Taft said yesterday there undoubt-
edly will be a move in the next
Congress to outlaw industry-wide
bargaining but that as of now, at
least, he is against the proposal.
Such a plan would require un-
ions to bargain on a local or re-
gional basis, so as to decrease their
power to shut down entire indus-
tries of multi-plant companies by
means of strikes.
Taft told a news conference that
another move toward amending
the Taft-Hartley Act in the new
Congress probably will relate to
union welfare funds.
THERE HAVE been many sug-
gestions that the government
should have some supervision over
employer-financed funds for em-
ploye benefits. The largest such
fund is the 100 million dollar one
operated by John L. Lewis for soft
Sen. Taft said he felt the na-
tional emergency provisions of
the T-H Act should be retained
substantially as now written. Ile
said it was his idea to leave
them alone for' two or three
years to see how they work "un-

President Truman has been
widely criticized by Taft and oth-
ers for failure to invoke the T-H
Law's emergency provisions in ma-
jor strikes, such as last summer's
two-month steel strike.
The law allows appointment of
a fact-finding board to report on
issues involved in such labor dis-
putes, but prohibits any settle-
ment recommendations. The pres-
ident can, on receiving the re-
port, seek a court injunction to
stop a strike for as long as 80
days. After that, Congress may

formed British circles in Tokyo is

DUE TO THE secret nature of
most atomic discoveries, it is
usually impossible for a patient
who feels that he has not been
properly compensated to have his
case reviewed by a court. Many
times a workman who has been
injured cannot appeal his settle-
ment because it would reveal clas-
The project is looking into
ways of remedying this situa-
tion. One obvious solution would
be to have a court especially
cleared for security and let them
sit in on all such cases. This
however would introduce a new
concept into national law.
In cooperation with the Phoenix
Project, the Law School this sum-
mer sponsored an institute in
Atomic Energy-Industrial and
Legal Problems. This institute was
devoted to industrial and legal
problems arising from the peace-
time utilization of atomic energy.
To Give First
The University Symphony Or-
chestra, conducted by Prof. Wayne
Dunlap, will give their first con-
cert of the season at 8 p.m., Nov.
24 in Hill Auditorium.
The 100-piece orchestra has been
in existence since 1887, when it
served as an accompanying or-
chestra for the University Musical
Society. Over the years it has been
under the direction of a number
of conductors, including Thor
Johnson, the present director of
the Cleveland Symphony Orches-
Many former students who
played with the group while at-
tending the University are now
associated with major symphony
orchestras throughout the country.
The orchestra made an earlier
appearance this year in the an-
nual Children's Concert on Oc-
tober 15 and will play at the an-
nual Mid-West Music Conference
in January besides its annual Con-
certo Concert on December 15.
