This article discusses the role of private nonprofit organization on the possession and development of fissionable materials for the production of atomic energy. The Joint Congressional Committee on Atomic Energy intends to hold public hearings on the subject of the development of nuclear power for industrial use. A general agreement stated that if adequate research and development programs are undertaken, nuclear power can be developed so that the source of energy can and will ultimately make a major contribution to the world's energy requirements.
