will still remain above the growth rate of the American economy.

changes, Tuesday night on the 13th.
day of a hot debate
The Tally Was 57-28..
The vote approved an omnibus
measure opening the atomic field
to private industry and author-
izes the President to reveal some
nuclear secrets to foreign allies,
The bill goes now to a Senate-
House conference where another
stiff skirmish, behind closed doors,

Senate Amendments
The Senate wrote in amend-
ments requiring companies taking
part in the atomic power program
to share their patents with other
concerns for 10 years, and author-
izing the Atomic Energy Com-
mission and some other govern-
ment agencies to operate atomic
power plants.
The House voted for normal
patent rights, except for develop-
ments created under government
auspices, and specifically barred
the AEC from getting, into large
scale power production.
Senators who fought to write
public power features into the
the bill; have threatened another
long battle if they are dropped in

Senate Republican Leader Know-
land of California called that a
record for concentrated attention
on a single measure. The Senate
has spent more elapsed time on
other bills but it has put them
aside in mid - debate to handle
other matters.
The fight over atomic energy
and Knowland's tactics in seeking
an early vote carried the Senate
into one almost continuous session
of 85 hours, 48 minutes and an-
other which ended tonight after
lasting nearly 36 hours.
The Senate nailed into the bill
an amendment by Sen. Edwin C.
Johnson (D-Colo) authorizing any
federal power agency to operate
atomic power plants, if they can
get funds from Congress, and giv-
ing preference in the sale of pow-
er to cooperatives and publicly
owned utilities -
Second Amendment
A second amendment, by Sen.
Gillette (D-Iowa), gives the same
preference for byproduct power
now available from present AEC
research plants.
The Senate approved an amend-
ment by Sen. Kerr (D-Okla) pro-
viding that new patents be shared
with qualified applicants for a
10-year period - one of the most
disputed parts of the bill.
International clauses permitting
exchange of some nuclear informa-
tion and laying the groundwork
for a start on President Eisen-
hower's plan for a global atomic
pool were approved without

change, as they were in the house.
The Senate specifically approved
an Eisenhower plan for the AEC
to contract with a Southern utility
group for new private power facil-
ities to serve the Memphis, Tenn.,
area over Tennessee Valley Au-
thority lines. The proposal brought
a drumfire of eight days' oppo-

Britain does.
State Department Note
The State Department note on
the attack on the British airliner
"Occurring over international
waters about 30 miles south of
Hainan Island, this unprovoked
and unwarranted attack resulted in
the killing of three United States
citizens, including two children of
the tender ages of 2 and 4 years,
and the wounding of three other
United States citizens, including a
child age 6.
"In behalf of the United States
government' appropriate punish-
ment is demanded of all persons
bearing responsibility for this
criminal attack, as well as com-
pensation for the victims and the
family of those killed.
"A further demand is made that
measures be taken to guard
against repetition of such an action
and that the United States govern-
ment be informed, through the
British government, of the nature
of such measures."
As for the other communication,

the time and circumstances of the
