Scientist Called Security Menace




Atom Expert
Charged with
Spy Activities
Condon Accused
By House Group
By The Associated Press
House Unamerican Activities Sub-
committee declared ,today that Dr.
Edward U. Condon, a top atomic
scientist, has associated with al-
leged Soviet spies.
It labelled Dr. Condon, who is
head of the National Bureau of
Standards, "one of the weakest
links in our atomic security."
Dr. Condon told a reporter who1
asked him about this:
"If I am one of the weakest
links in the Nation's atomic se-
curity, this is gratifying informa-
tion, because I'm absolutely re-
liable and therefore we (the na-
tion) have nothing to worry about.
The country can relax."
The House group, in a formal
report, recalled that Condon was
appointed to his post on the rc
ommendation of Henry Wallace.
Speaking of Communists, the re-
port said:
-"In this country they haven't
gotten as far as they did in Czech-
oslovakia, but they got pretty far,
because they got a man as Vice
President of the United States,
and he is now their candidate for
President, and he is the same man
who recomnv ded Dr. Condon as
director of the Bureau of Stand-
The committee spoke warning-
ly of evidence which it said "in-
dicates very strongly that there is
t in operation at the present time
in the United States an extensive
Soviet espionage ring."
It warned of "ultimate disas-
ter" if this ring be allowed to
Dr. Condon, the report said,
"knowingly or unknowingly en-
' tertained and associated with per-
sons who are alleged Soviet es-
pionage agents."
Condon commented: "That's
just too vague to talk about. I
certainly didn't do it knowingly."
Of the report's statement that
he "has lent his name and in-
fluence to one of the principal
Communist endeavors in the Unit-
edStates," the scientist replied:
"I suppose that refers to my
membership in the American So-
viet Science Society.
This society is supported by a
$25,000 grant from the Rockefel-
ler Foundation and is not Com-
munistic in any sense of the
The committee report did say
this was the organization. It add-
ed that the Council was affiliated
with the National Council of
American Soviet friendship
"which was recently cited as a
subversive organization" by Attor-
ney General Clark.

Sees 51-35 Win
Over Iowa Team
Michigan Second Big Nine School
To Take Basketball, Grid Titles
Daily Sports Editor
Ozzie Cowles' second edition of Michigan cagers blew the lid off
staid old Ann Arbor with a 51-35 victory over Iowa before a screaming
crowd of 9,000 fans, at Yost Field House last night, to end the Wol-
verines long basketball title drought.
For the second time in Big Nine history, the same school has
captured both the football and basketball crowns in the same season,
only Purdue in 1931 turning the trick before. But Cowles' superbly
coached squad left little doubt that they would match the Boilermak-
ers' feat, except for a bad stretch at the opening of the second half.
After rolling up a 29-22 half time lead with machine-like effi-
ciency that saw the Wolverines sink 13 of 14 free throws, a belated
attack ofbuck fever caught up with them, and the Hawkeyes knotted
the count at 31-31 as Michigan *

Ozzie Cowles Rides High on Shoulders of Champs)

Coach Ozzie Cowles was ridin'
high last night.
High atop the shoulders of his
newly-crowned champions, the sil-
ver-thatched cage mentor rode
royally to the locker room immedi-
ately after Michigan's title-clinch-
ing victory over Iowa at Yost Field
"It's a wonderful feeling," ex-
claimed the jubilant Cowles, who
produced seven championship
teams at Dartmouth before com-
ing to Ann Arbor in 1946.

' Amidst the expected din and
confusion of the locker room,
scores of well-wishers were con-
tinually congratulating the players

prise appearance in the game last
night to the delight of the over-
flow crowd, was one of the most
popular figures in the dressing

cage squad all season, Bump

seconds remaining to oblige every-
one but Iowa.
"Bump was a good man for us
against Iowa," explained Coach
Cowles. "He's a little guy, but he's
fast and shifty-he certainly
played a fine game."
As usual, locker room bouquets
were in order for Pete Elliott, who
limited Iowa's Murray Weir, a 23-
point-per-game-man and the
highest scorer in Big Nine his-
tory,-to 14 tallies.

floor shots in the first half, and
only one out of eight attempts in
the second session.) ,
Pete called Weir the toughest
man he has faced all season. "He
has tremendous speed, but what's
more, he has a terrific enough as-
sortment of shots to fool any-
body," said the Wolverine star.
From the locker room, Michi-
gan's basketball titlists went to
Hill Auditorium where they were
honored on stage prior to the
showing of a special motion pic-
ture donated for the evening.

If Western Europe falls to Com-
munism, America will have to be
a policed armed camp, said Le-
land Stowe, noted journalist, in a
lecture advocating World Govern-
ment at Hill Auditorium Sunday
The lecture was under the joint
sponsorship of the United World
Federalists and the Student Fam-
ine Committee.
"We will evolve toward World
Government or World Chaos" he
said, "and World Government can
only be achieved through a po-
tent internnational police force
and the United Nations."
Stowe called "disastrous" the
notion that we can attain per-
manent well being through a pow-
erful national defense. "The price
of an atomic defense would cost
millions of dollars and the loss of
our democratic institutions," he'
Around-the-clock mobilization
of arms and men would cost one-
half of every taxpayer's dollar
and considerably lower the Amer-
ican standard of living, he added.
More disastrous, he emphasized,
would be the inevitability of a
strong police force entering every
phase of American life and im-
pinging upon its system of free
private enterprise.
Stowe cited Palestine as the

tempts, plus a pair of charity
But a pair of substitutes, Hal
Morrill and Boyd McCaslin teamed
with Mack Suprunowicz and Bill
Roberts and Pete Elliott to spark
the stretch drive that sewed up
Michigan's first title since 1929.
Elliott began it with a set shot
to break the deadlock. Supruno-
wicz followed with a two-handed
shot from his favorite corner,
then Roberts, using his height
more effectively than ever before,
whipped a pass from out of a
melee under the basket to "Supey"
who dropped it in to stretch the
lead to six points. Roberts added
another basket from the free
throw circle on a pass from Mc-
Caslin who fed the big center from
the middle of another scramble,
and it was Michigan 39, Iowa 31.
Took Over Spotlight
Morrill took over the spotlight
then with some. of the season's
most sensational defensive work.
He leaped high in the air to break
up two successive court length
passes intended for Iowa's pint-
sized seige gun, Murray Weir, be-
gan a personal domination of both
backboards, and then dropped in
a set shot that put the lid on the
Michigan scoring spree.
For the Hawkeyes Weir was the
whole story. The much heralded
Weir-Elliott duel was all it had
been cracked up to be. Elliott
dogged. him all evening, holding
him to a respectable 14 points, but
the little guy threw in some un-
believable shots, as he racked up
11 points in the first half.
Never Trailed
Michigan jumped off to an early
lead on a free throw by surprise
starter Bill Mikulich, watched
Floyd Magnusson tie it, and then
stepped out in earnest as Captain
Bob Harrison and Don McIntosh
dropped in a pair of field goals.
They matched baskets with the
Iowans and were breezing along
when Weir caught fire and
sunk three straight baskets while
Fete Elliott tossed in a free throw
for Michigan.

.the Wolverines kept them ahead
for the rest of the period and they,
