Southern Regional Education i
Plan, officials disclosed today.
Dr. Marshall W. Brown, a mem
ber of the State Board of Control

Brown issued a report showing
that South Carolina has 44 stu

three-year-old program. Fourteen

Atlanta. Ga.; eight more are
studying dentistry at the Univer
sity of Virginia; six are in medi
cine and four in dentistry at Mc
harry, and four, are in dentistry
at the University of Maryland.
The Regional Education Pro

Governors Conference m 1947, is
a -compact including 14 states in
an exchange of educational op

low students from one area to
attend colleges elsewhere in the
South, at resident costs, to study
courses which were not available
in their home states.
... Both Negro and white students
were participating in the program,
but so far. the greater portion of
the South Carolina students have
been white, Brown said.
South Carolina Negroes who
did enroll and who were accepted
at the schools have made out
standing records. Dr. Brown said,

WASHINGTON. Oct. 24
Chairman Gordon Dean of the
Atomic Energy Commission said
today the United States is "much
better off" in the field of atomic
weapons than it was a year ago.
"You can be sure we are strong
er than Russia," he said.
Dean gave no figures, however,
and declined to speculate whether
U. S. atomic strength has in
creased in proportion to Russia's.
He told a news conference that
a sde for attempting to manufac
ture the hydrogen bomb will be
announced within a short time.
But he wouldn't say what prog
ress is being made in H-bomb
research, calling the bomb still
somewhere "between the possible
and the probable."
And he declined to say directly
whether any more Russian atomic
explosions have been reported, al
though he seemed to hint that
none have been.
Dean said President Truman
announced the first Soviet A-blast
last year because he felt the peo
ple were entitled to that infor
mation. "The President hasn't seen fit
to make any more announce
ments," the chairman said. "I'll
