MONDAY, OCTOBER 24, 1949 , - \ Scientist Tosses VerbalBombshell Nobei Price Winner Soys Soviets Gaining In Atom Bomb Race PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 24. CAP)— A Nobel prize winning scientist has pitched a verbal bombshell at the i American people. He said the Rus- i sians are-moving faster than the) Us. In atomic development and soon may be ahead of us. And Dr. Harold C. Urey, the scientist honored for discovering heav yhydrogen, had a ready-made reason: The U.S. is too concerned about military secrecy. "It is time that we take stock of this situation and recognize It for ^hat It is,' Dr. Urey declared, "and 0§| Is time that we stop witch hunt~"<S about the 'secret' which ob- viosly now does not exist." He eave his views at a press conference last week. So did Lt. Gen. Leslie R. Groves, v/artiirie atomic research chief. Dr. Urey said "I would lire every security officer In every atomic plant and laboratory in the United States with the exception of Los Alamos."

"Millions have been spent to track down the oplio bug," I said. "How come it's still at large?" "That's a difficult question," said the diagnostician, "and a dozen doctors would give you a dozen different answers. My theory—and it applies to cancer and heart as well —is that the men In charge of parceling out the funds are spending too much for buildings and too little for brains. Let me explain. ."
