  • Letter from Dr. M. Haissinsky, Faculty of Sciences, Institut du Radium, Paris, to LP RE: Announces that he and Magat have received visas to visit the United States to attend the Gordon Conference.

  • Letter from Dr. S.G. Tomlin, Physics Dept., University of Adelaide, to LP RE: As Tomlin has received LP's letter, asks that LP ignore Tomlin's last letter. Thanks LP for reviewing his manuscript. Only mentioned LP and Corey's collagen model to acknowledge their development of the cylindrical moleculre of 12A diameter. Should have referred to LP's changed opinion about this matter. Requests that LP clarify his remarks about the overlapping. Does not see how one could obtain direct evidence for or against the overlap structure. Requests that LP return the manuscript so that Tomlin can revise it.

  • Letter from Jerry Pacht, Pacht, Ross, Warne, and Bernhard, Attorneys at Law, to LP RE: Pleased to have been one of the panelists in the Federation of American Scientists' symposium at CIT. Also pleased that LP was able to attend the majority of the symposium. The U.S. Court of Appeals announced that denying the passport of Max Shachtman, based solely upon his officership in the Independent Socialist League, was a denial of due process. The Court also announced the right of Americans to travel freely abroad and the impropriety of capricious denial of passports generally. Would like to discuss points raised in the symposium with LP in the future. [Filed under LP Correspondence: (P: Correspondence, 1953-1959), #313.3]
