apprized of the full story of their endeavors Thats generally true of those who labored in Tennes see and Washington but its also true of those who labored in the laboratory It was a case of Do as youre dont ask questions All of this is true But the fact still remains that quite a few persons DID know And they maintained a secrecy which gives the lie to that old saying that it isnt a secret any more if more than one person knows it take my own case for ex ample Throughout the war Ive served as a member of the Iowa state board of education Two of the institutions governed by our board have

minimizing the im portance of the job done at Iowa City lets talk about the Ames program As a member of the state board there came before me periodically in the Iowa State college docket an item calling for the expendi ture of varying amounts of federal money for a project identified only as POC9 or some such code designation Usually the sum was in excess of a million dollars for the total spent at Ames during the war approached 7 million dollars Whats this item what are you doing up there at Ames mem bers of the board would ask Pres ident C E Friley His smiling reply always was I cant

guarded plant on the Ames campus One of our board members a woman inci dentally wired this message to President Friley N o w we know Im not sure but I think she sent it collect She should have I insist As nearly as I can figure It out the only way for me to have pen etrated the veil of secrecy which wrapped iiself around the gigantic atomic research program would have been somehow to get myself made president of the United States And I base this somewhat fantastic statement on the experi ence of one Harry Truman Before being nominated for the vice presidency Mr Truman was a member of

the conten tion of the chief prosecutor Maj Robert M Kerr of Portland Ore that the proceedings were nothing like those of any ordinary court of law and that no detailed state ment of charges was required Kerr also protested bitterly the appointment of the two Japanese generals to Yamashitas defense staff but Reynolds allowed their appointment in the interest of a fair trial Kerr heatedly pro tested the appearance of such men before this commission as lawyers and argued that itmight later have an effect on their own trials Clarke had asked for their addition to the defense staff on the ground they were acquainted with many facts concerning Yamashita of which he knew nothing LAVAL ABSENT TRIAL CONTINUES Defense Counsel and Witnesses Not in Court Paris treason trial of Pierre Laval
