WASHINGTON, Sept. 22-MV- Cettrlc Worth testified yesterday that he thinks plane maker Glenn L. Martin fed him the rumor that Secretary of Air Symington would quit «nd head • .big aircraft company merger. The suspended Navy officials said • Iso that Martin "In a sense" asked him for the once-anonymous memo which sparked a congressional investigation of the Air Force's B-36 bomber. The paper hinted al fraud and political favoritism In the development of the atom bomb SVorth «ald Martin wanted the IMormstion for Senator Tyrtlngs (D-Md). chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee.

Crommelin supplied a sensation of his own ten days asn with a charge that Air Force and Army generals are running the Navy's fighting power. Worth, under suspension as special assistant to Navy Undersecretary Dan Kimball, gave his version or a meeting last April in Martin's Baltimore office. It had different touches from the accounts previously give by Martin, Navy Commander Thomas E. Davies and Harold Mosier. Washington attorney for the "' " Aircraft company. Worth testified that many of the points that later appeared in his memo were covered in the dis- Aliissions. He said some were ru- ^inrs that he heard for the first time from Marttu—he thinks. One of these rumors was that Industrialist Floyd Odium was organizing a merger of various aircraft companies and Symington was to resign and run it. Both .Odium and Symington have denied Hint they even so much as discussed anything like that. Tydlnju Mentioned Odium is president of the Atlas Corporation whcih controls Consol- Idsi'd-Vultee. maker of the B-36. Worth said that Martin gave him to understand that Tydings was concerned about the reports and rumors in the aviation industry. Crommelin said he had nqthing to do with preparation of the memo and knew of no one else who had lent a hand. But he read to the court a brier statement which wound up this way: "However, I wish to reaffirm what I said about the character of Cedric Worth. It Is my firm conviction that Cedric Worth was pro- mopted by the highest motives of patriotism and selflessness in whatever action he took to help point out the dangers of the original (A'dings Bill. It Is also my firm Belief that when this entire investigation is completed, Cedric Worth will be vindicated in the eyes of the American people." That statement goes back to one. Crommelin gave the press ten days ago complaining that the Navy's attack powers was being "nibbled to death" through inter-service rivalry. The court o! inquiry isn't looking into that at all. Capt. Sanforri Wood, chief examiner, was concerned only with a statement by Crommelin that he. Worth, Capt. Leroy Simpler and Lt. Samuel Ingram conferred about May 20. Crommelin said there was a discussion then of giving the Worth memo to the press but it was decided instead to try to get Congress to hear the Navy's side on the Tydings.Bill. . exhibits on the fairgrounds.
