PHILADELPHIA W — A former employe of the Frankford Army Arsenal here said yesterday he purposely took documents from sup- posed'ly .secured files to demon- sinue to his superiors what lie !fk were lax security measures. Joseph S. Shields Jr., 31, an Air Force veteran, said he returned 'he tiles three days later after first >;o- :ng to Washington, D. C., and of- fenny them to 3 member of S<"-P.. McCarthy's (R-Wis) staff. Shields said the staff member ad- vi.sed him to return the docunic:.". to the commanding general of 'h arsenal. Brig. Gen. Joseph Colby. Shields said that as he was ; j x plaining his actions to a civiii.i security officer at the arsenal, l.i. Col. Premiss Reed, an arsenal ot- ficial, entered the room and "b:<;w his top." "I showed Col. Reed how ch oi- fit'd materials could be removed from the drawer. He said that c:ib- inei would have to be repaired :i:id 1 told him it was supposed to b paired. I turned the papers over to Col. Reed and he said he would see they got back to the proper files." Shields said he resigned voluntarily later ihai day. Frankford Arsenal is a govern- mem manufacturing site for sm.iH arms 11 M munition and storage are;i for explosives. Norman McCabe, agent in charge ( of the Federal Bureau of Investiga- j ;ion office in Philadelphia said the FBI was making an investigation to , determine whether any federal i laws had been violated in conncc- i [ion with ihe removal of the docu- ' merits. Otherwise, McCabe said, the FBI would have no comment to make now. ; Shields declined to disclose the j nature of the documents he took. ; He said there were a half-dozen all I .stamped "confidential" and dated J as recently as Oct. 12, 1955. ! Assailing what he termed the ' poor security conditions at the ar: .stMiiil, Shields said, "I have no : cioubt I could break in there and . nut a bomb in the center of the powder area. There would be little possibility of being caught — unless things are much tighter since I left." Shields said he had first reported the faulty file cabinet from which . he took the documents six months ; before he actually removed anything.
