For himself, Oppenheimer warmly defended the policy of exporting certain types of radio-active Isotopes for research.

She had notes from Ihe other paper, dated March 3, when she was arrested in New York the next day along with a Soviet engineer, Valentine A. Gub- itchev, 32. Lamphere testified thai he drafted these "decoy" papers with the Idea lhat they would come to Miss Coplon's attention. The January 27 paper said, among other things, that the FBI had information that "Amtorg employees have functioned as Soviet espionage agents. "I furnished information to that effect, yes, sir," Lamphere said in reply to a question by Palmer. The agent added lhat he included Ihis information in an FBI report.

Prosecuting and defense attorneys entered into a stipulation today as to what- typewriters were used to write the 34 so-called data slips found In Miss Coplon's purse.
