Senator Byrd (D.-Va.) developed that Hershey and the President also liffered about extension of the draft after Hershey testified the machinery would be badly needed or any "remoblllzation."

American and British scientists who are expert In atomic energy developments are of the opinion that-only the United States has the real "know-how" to build atomic bombs and that other countries are still In the experimental stage of atomic research. Yet, American scientists have warned for months that the United States cannot hope to hold forever the secret of the atomic bomb. There hove been recent Indications that German scientists have ibeen employed by the Russians to solve the secret. How far they have pro- ceeded is another secret. But it is n fact that German scientists were experimenting with methods of splitting the atom long before U. S. scientists went to work on the project. 27 .15 Do-s Molnes 38 22 22 Anpelcs 79 CO Paul. 35 M New Orleans......... 09 45 .43 York............ 51 42 .40 Phoenix SO 41 Washington..........54 49 ,21 KlVEft BULLETIN Flood Stage 24-Hr.
