11:50 A.M.—'Testimony completed, Stratton heads for session of House, but pauses at entrance to chat with Rep. Melvin Price of Illinois, right, high ranking member of the House Atomic Energy Commission, and Rep. Vinson. (Speakers Lobby is hallowed ground. To get a picture there required special permission of House Speaker Sam Rayburn, who not only granted permission but also stopped by to welcome the GE News to Washington.) "The ultimate objective of action by all members of Congress is the passage of legislation on the House floor. The House meets promptly at noon each day and stays in session until its business is concluded."
