To Aig deeper, he teamed up with I Doyle Kline, mananlnj editor of the Albuquerque Tribune, -and his staff. Both checked their Information with the most responsible sources. This Is the third of their four dispatches. * * * * ' * ' * By DOUGLAS LARSEN and DOYLE KLINE NEA Correspondents ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — (NEA) — The espionage Methods first introduced by Fuchs, Greenglass and the Ros- enbergs to this area—which contains the major elements of the nation's nuclear wtapoi, development program—are now officially regarded as out of date. According to security men, the new type agent doesn't have to do anything as undignified as scribble notes from secret documents, Worm his way onto the payroll of an important atomic installation, or contact Moscow agents on a lonely bridge like Fuchs. The agent now rents a house in Albuquerque or Santa Pe, does a lot of entertaining, welcomes the neighbors' kids. Established as "respectable" the arent only has to wander Into a few bars downtown and chat with the customer!. People here are naturally friendly and everyone assumes you do atomic work of some kind. Just about any Albuquerque or Santa Fe citizen will volunteer half- a-dozen or so instances of information leaks he has picked up. For instance, a housewife offers the one about the 12-year-old Junior high school student who came Into r house and told of an atomic experiment which "eot out of hand" at Los Alamos. The child's father had just been transferred to Albuquerque. "It -wasn't .one of the explosions they're having all the time," the child said. "It was a shot." In parlance of the scientists here, a "shot" describes a nuclear blast. In this Instance, the child cdntin- ued, the blast stirred up some Santa Fe neople 40 miles away. "They phoned us to see if we were still there," the child said. A security official «ald: "Sure, this information ?«iks harmless. But send that Information to an enemy collecting agency where it can be matched with a mass of other.fragments and it may provide the missing clue they need." The existence of such a collection agency in the area was first revealed by Sen. Pat McCarran's (D. Nev.) Senate 'Internal Security subcommittee recently. One of the witnesses in a secret hearing, FBI informer Harvey M. Matsusow, says he Identified the Srn Cristobal Valley Ranch, near Taos .and 60 miles from Los Alamos, as "catering primarily to members of of the Communist Party" when he appeared before the group. As part of the apparatus, Matusow says, "I was asked to find out what I could about^our atomic installations at Los Alamos and the nearby Sandia Base." He adds: "As far as the committee knows, the ranch is still running under the management of persons named in sworn testimony as Communists." Residents claim that the village of Taos also is a hotbed of Red activity- FBI files reveal another leak. A youthful research worker, newly arrived from the east, regaled his roommate with details of his work, a brand-r..ew line of research. Fortunately for the U.S., the roommate was one of a network of paid USED BY SPIES — This bridge in Santa Fe was used by atom spies Fuchs and Gold as rendezvous to deliver Information.
