Notes, topics or text 

Eaton writes to BR regarding a programme on Eaton, discussing his efforts for world peace over a nationwide radio broadcasting network on 7 May, in which many of Eaton's quotations from over the years were taken out of context.

Eaton quotes Fulton Lewis Jr. as saying, during the broadcast, "Eaton for the last two years has financed the Pugwash Conference to which he has invited scientists from various countries of the world. Among other scientists, was Professor Hans Thirring of Austria on whom my files of correspondence from Vienna contain a report that he is in close and constant contact there with Soviet agents, and that on his return from the Pugwash Conference he routed his itinerary through Moscow where he held extensive conferences."

It has been suggested that the FBI obtained reports on Thirring through the CIA. Eaton writes that he feels there should be an investigation made if the CIA is observing the Pugwash members, for it violates their rights.
