Plans Have Been Prepared for the Greatest Give-Away of Them All ? Our Uranium Deposits

Brant, Irving
May 1954
New Republic;5/17/54, Vol. 130 Issue 20, p15
This article presents an open letter by the author to Rep. Chet Holifield, a member of the Joint Committee on Atomic Energy. The author points out the fallacies in one section of the Cole bill that contains changes in the Atomic Energy Act of 1946. The McMahon Act provides that all minerals important to atomic energy, existing in our public lands, are reserved to the use of the U.S., subject of course to private claims antedating 1946. The amended bill not only strikes out the reservation of public ownership of uranium, etc., on public lands, but authorizes the Secretary of the Interior to remove this provision from land patents already subject to it.
