Friendly and his wife happened to .be driving near Princeton, N. J. and dropped in for a look at the Institute for Advance Study. That suggested a program on the Institute, and arrangements Were made. Several weeks later. Murrow came back with n cam era crew. He began'by interviewing Niels Bohr, the physicist. Then Murrow began talking to Oppon- heimcr, thinking they would get a five-minute segment for the snow. Murrow got so interested he and Oppenheimer talked lor almost ,four hours.

Robert Riskin, a film j-jl/riter. its broach of contract suit. The company contend that the government broke the contract! when it closed the plant without formal notice. Lcmley's order for a "full development" of the facts came after U.S. Dist. Atty. Thomas Eisele said the government admitted that; "if it is not entitled-to a decree of foreclosure under Amendment' one, the case should be dismissed witnout prejudice ns having been prematurely brought." On this assumption, Eisele said he planned to limit cross-cxmina tion. of Westmoreland officials to that phase of the case. Amendment No. 1 stated t.hct the government could terminate the contract without notice. The government executed tho amendment April 2, 1953, closing the plant only five days before the first Shipments of manganese were scheduled for delivery to the government. Lemley said the amendment is the "crux" of the suit, but that "government investigators may want to review this entire matter," and that he wants all the facts on record. Although they have not said why, Westmoreland officials ar gue that tho amendment is invalid. Testimony has not revealed why the company signed the amendment.
