atomic energy is optimistic about the pos sibilities of avoiding war Im sure our relative strength as com pared to Russia is overwhelming said Gen Leslie R Groves in his Mason City Armistice day speech War is always started with the idea of a quick and easy victory he explained If Stalin knows there can be no easy victory there will be no war He believes the evidence of some type of atomic explosion in Russia said the retired army en gineer and we must assume that the Russians are as far along in their investigations as we were when the 1st bomb was exploded in New Mexico It is likely however said Gen Groves that they have not yet solved the problem of carrying the bomb or exploding it else where than on the ground Calls War Immoral War itself is immoral and so is any weapon that takes human life admitted the former profes sional soldier but he waved aside the immoral aspects of using the aom bomb We cannot criticize the weapons used to insure vic tory if we believe that victory moral Atomic energy can be used on ships or large industrial plants he answered a questioner but it is not economically feasible yet Its real peacetime use is like the use of the Xray or microscope for the advancement of knowledge but not for treatment he said The publics only assurance that atomic energy js being properly handled is through a nonpartisan congressional committee on atomic energy but the present committee is strictly partisan according to the wartime chief of atomic ener gy band Mrs Schoucks was wearing police said After a clerk would lay out a tray of rings the couple would examine them Albert Lea Police 3hief Ole Anderson said Then hey would ask to see some from the window and make the sub stitution while the clerks back The original congressional com mittee of which Iowas Senator B B Hickenlooper was was a nonpartisan group Gen Groves told his small audience at Roosevelt fieldhouse Dislikes Probes He never liked congressional in vestigations he admitted but he emphatically stressed the right of congress to investigate any pub lic official or group Pruipp Qnirl tlirt rml Police said the couple got a from the Schulz store a one from the Deutchman jewelry store and another from the Kuy er store Then they drove to Owatonna where they allegedly tried the ame trick on Carl Kottke a jew eler Anderson said Soon after hey allegedly walked

displeasure at having assistant secretaries of the cabinet so soon after the war who served as lieu tenants junior grade in the navy or in draft exempt positions which they neecTnot have held The biggest spy threat during development of the bomb was not from Germans or Japs but from the Russians he discovered within a month after taking over the command and he consequently never was able to feel that they were the noble allies our gov ernment propagandists tried to make them appear Would Keep Secrets He admitted his dismay when a U S cabinet officer after the war actually favored giving all our information on atomic energy to the Russians Difficulty in international agree ment on control of atomic energy was partly our fault in muffing the ball at the start said Gen Groves It was caused by publica tion of a secret memorandum stat how far this government should go in its concessions to Russia So Baruch went into the con ference with his cards face up on the table The Russians were face WC had nothing to bargain He thinks it possible that agree ment still may be reached how C V r Bomb Shortened War The atom bomb shortened the war with Japan at least 6 months and saved
