Scmenov, said Hoover, told Gold n 1944 to drop his contacU with SInck and the explosive development at Klngsport to undertake "a very important assignment." This, according to the FBI director, turned out to be the series of meetings which Gold had with f-'uchs In and around New York Oily and in Santa Fe. N.M..
