    FOR THREE DAYS NOW, A BATTERY OF SCIENTISTS HAS RATTLED OFF STATISTICS, TECHNICAL BACKGROUND INFORMATION AND COMPLICATED FORMULAS BEFORE A CONGRESSIONAL HEARING INTO RADIOACTIVE FALLOUT.

    IF THERE'S ANYTHING THE INQUIRY HAS PRODUCED IT'S AN OBVIOUS DISAGREEMENT BY THE SCIENTISTS ON HOW MUCH FALLOUT IS NECESSARY TO ENDANGER OUR HEALTH. YESTERDAY, (date - source) WITH DOCTOR BRUES OF THE ARGONNE NATIONAL......
    ...LABORATORY TESTIFYING, SENATOR JOHN PASTORE TRIED TO FIND OUR -- IN THE SIMPLEST OF TERMS -- WHAT THE FALLOUT STORY IS:
    TODAY -- THE CONGRESSIONAL COMMITTEE ON ATOMIC ENERGY PRESSED ON FOR THE THIRD DAY... TRYING TO FIND OUT EXACTLY WHAT THE HAZARDS ARE FROM RADIOACTIVE FALL-OUT, OR CONTAMINATION, FROM NUCLEAR BOMB TESTING.

    THE TESTIMONY HAS BEEN EXTREMELY COMPLEX, TECHNICAL,AND SOMETIMES CONFLICTING. NO EASY ONE-WORD ANSWER HAS BEEN FOUND...AND PROBABLY NONE WILL BE.
