New Report
Says Secret
Fuse Stolen
Scientist In Navy
Responsible, FBI
By The Associated Press
Senate investigators in Wash-
ington disclosed yesterday that in
1945 the FBI identified a wartime
scientist in the office of Fleet Adm.
Ernest J. King as a "Soviet agent"
who may have stolen secrets of the
hush-hush proximity fuse.
A hitherto secret portion of an
FBI report on Soviet espionage,
released by the Senate internal se-
curity subcommittee, said the
identification was made possible
by Igor Gouzenko, former code
clerk in the Russian Embassy in
Ottawa, Canada.

scientist's name from the report3
and identified him only as "X."
The report described Mr. "X"
as a native-born American citi-
zen 'who specialized in zoology,
went to work for the wartime
Office of Scientific Research
and Development and was as-
signed as a scientific consultant
to King.
As commander-in-chief of the
U.S. fleet and chief of naval oper-
ations, King was the highest offi-
* cer in the Navy.
Information developed by the
Royal Canadian Mounted Police,
the report said, "indicated it is
possible that Mr. X' slipped se-
crets of the proximity fuse to Dr.
Allan Nunn May, British scien-
tist and confesseddSoviet spy sta-
tioned in Canada during the war."
* * *
MAY WENT to jail after admit-
ting to British authorities in 1946
that he had supplied Russia with
information on the fuse and on
the atomic bomb, along with sam-
ples of uranium, the principal in-
gredient of the A-bomb. The fuse,
which explodes shells when they
near their targets, was almost as
great a secret as the A-bomb.

Secretary of State John Foster
Dulles came to grips with Senator
Joseph McCarthy on foreign pol-
icy yesterday in Washington with
a declaration that the United
States will not use "blustering and
domineering methods" towards
allies whose friendship it needs to
deter a Russian atomic attack.
Asserting he spoke with the
knowledge and support of Presi-
dent Dwight D. Eisenhower, Dulles
took the position that "arrogant"
attempts at coercion would weaken
the free world in the face of the
Soviet danger.
