Evidence Reveals Wartime
Atomic Energy Conspiracy
Documents Show Russia Trailed Atom
Secrets Five Months Before Hiroshima

Special Prosecutor F. Philippe Rais
submitted for the first time docu-
ments purportedly stolen from the
Soviet embassy in Ottawa, docu-
ments which form the backbone of
the government's case against its em-
ployes and others accused of conspir-
ing to give Russia scientific and
cther wartime secrets to the detri-
aient of the safety of their own coun-
According to these documents:
1. Soviet agents as early as March
28, 1945, knew of Canada's work on
itomic endrgy and were instructing
heir Canadian cooperators to report
)n it.
Payments Reported
2. Canadian members of the es-
pionage network accepted money for
their services.
3. The Canadians were given or-
lers through the Soviet embassy in
Jttawa to get specific information on
;ertain phases of Canada's secret re-
earch as well as to supply generalt
Information. Among the inventions
sought was "a radar device for use
n the Pacific," and a new explosive
>ropellant algonite in which "the
Americans are said to be very inter-
feret Meetings
4. Many of the meetings between
he Soviet agents and the Canadians
vere held at night on street corners
n Ottawa, the Canadian capital, with
he Russians paying taxicab fares
or those who lived far away. The
.anadians were instructed specifi-
ally not to take the cabs all the way
'o the rendezvous.
5. "The directo'," heretofore iden-
ified only in this way, the guiding
'and in Moscow of the spy operations
Mere, was "the chief of the first in-
elligence headquarters" in the Soviet
ousing. . .

attesting to this. There was a report
that a railway station in Los Angeles
was allowing a couple to sleep in the
station. Asking them to leave would
have been a ticklish situation; the
couple had purchased tickets to a
nearby town every night.
In Grand Central a ticket agent
was confronted with a barrage of
complicated queries regarding train
schedules and time tables. The would-
be traveler insisted that he wanted
to leave New York by a Pullman car,
travel away from the city overnight
and turn around in time to return to
the city in time for an appointment
the following morning. Further ex-
planation revealed that the man was
using this as a last resort to get some
sleep...... the hotels were filled.
Evicts The Landlord
A tenant in' New Mexico went to
almost drastic means to keep a roof
over his head. His landlord evicted
him with the intention of razing the
building to make way for a shop,
whereupon the former tenant pro-
ceeded to purchase the landlord's
home and to send an eviction notice
right back.
In reply to the theory of "home is
what (and where) you make it," the
tale of a Pullman porter might be
considered. On one of his countless
runs up New York State, he went
down the car corridor to get bedding
to make up a berth. At his return the
passenger was nowhere to be seen,
but a cheery voice assured him that
said passenger was already in bed.
Not a little persuasion got the man
out and into his right bed-for he
had prepared to go off to sleep in the
net hammock where travelers usually
put their clothes.
lusiness Smtu ker Planned
Second smoker of the term for all
men in the School of Business Ad-
ministration will be held at 8 p.m.
Tuesday, in Rm. 316 of the Union.
Prof. William Haber of the eco-
nomics department will speak on the
topic, "Bureaucrats At Work In War-

time Washington."
