Promised Technical Assistance London Alan Nunn May was sentenced Wednesday to 10 years in prison for violating the British official secrels act by disclosing restricted information which his attorney said went to soviet Russia and concerned atomic energy May is a British physicist who on nuclear research in Canada during the war in the suc cessful effort of Ihe United Stales Britain and Canada to create the atomic bomb He pleaded guilty The 34yearold May who was arrested last March was specifi cally accused of communicating to some person unknown certain information calculated to be or which might be directly or indi rectly useful to an enemy The enemy was not specified the prosecution declaring merely that it might be any potential enemy His arrest however followed closely the launching of a Canad ian investigation info alleged so viet espionage activities which Canadian Prime Minister IWac Kcnzic Kins said extended through the dominion into the United States and Britain Several persons are under ar rest in Canada in connection with that investigation Defense Counsel Gerald Gardi ner in asking clemency for May said flatly that the information the defendant was accused of dis closing was given to the Russians and that at the time of the of in February 1345 the government had offered nil possi ble technical or economic assis tance to Russia Rightly or wrongly Gardiner said Dr May felt full indigna tion that these promises of tech nical assistance were made one hour and ignored the next Gardiner told the court that May considered giving the infor mation the only contribution he could mak5 to the safety of man kind because he felt that the more people knew about atomic energy the more seriously they would take it Doctors take the view Gardi ner added that if they discover something useful to mankind they are under obligation to give it to mankind There are scientists who take substantially the same view AttorneyGeneral Sir Hartlev Shawcross who prosecuted the case told the court It is not right that an inflivid ua should so far set himself above the laws of his country as to com municate information which his government in agreement with other governments concerned had felt must at present be maintained as a secret Replying to the defense asser tion that the information had been given to Russia the prosecution said There is no point in suggesting that the Russians are enemies or potential enemies The offense was in giving information which DR ALAN NUNN MAY Russ Refuse Identifying of Hitler Bones London refusal to confirm the
