Washington Front

June 1957
America;6/22/1957, Vol. 97 Issue 12, p337
The article focuses on the conflict among the 30 agencies of the U.S. Federal Government. It notes that Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) head Lewis L. Strauss considers himself a part of the Executive, which is not the case. It notes that in the discussion of the negative effect of the failure of the atomic (A)- and hydrogen (H)-bomb tests, those scientists who work for the AEC say it is all right, while the official Strauss line, and several atomic physicists and chemists say there is danger for present and future generations from the tests.
