^WEDNESDAY, MARCH 5, 101T U.S. Government Policy Under Fire Congressman Fears Russia to Obtain Atomic Bomb Secrets WASHINGTON, Mnrch 5. (UP) —Chairman J. Parnoll Thomas ot the,, House Un'American Activities Committee charged today that ilia government has given Hussia access to important industrial aim military patents—including some Jjjrhicri. he feared might bctary \»chnlcal "know how" involved In the atomic bomb. In an address prepared for delivery on the House floor the New Jersey Republican said" lliat Soviet "(rout organizations" sys= tematlcally have been tapping American inventive genius through the U. S. Patent Office. Thomas added that former Secretary of commerce Homy A. Wallace should be called before the proper committee of the House to explain lv hy these or<;:mi£ntlori were given 'access to patents involving military inventions. '• He said he also would like for Secretary of State George c. Marshall to carry a copy of his remarks with him to the Impending foreign ministers conf-;:-en:e ai Moscow. Thomas' statement was mado as an UnAmerican Activities Subcommittee prepared to ;;q to Now York in an effort to l?arn if an undercover ring is supplying faked passports to foreign agents. He said Russian organizations had obtained hundreds of thousands of copies of patents iroin the Patent Office dealing with industrial, chemical and military .inventions. He said '.hey ordered as many as 6,000 patents in a single request. "And what have we received in return?" Thomas asked. "Nothing. 1 Since 1927 Russia lias refused to f give us a single patent, yet we Jisive obligingly handed to them in this one-way exchange our industrial and military know-how." Among the Soviet organizations obtaining patents, Thomas listed the Four continent, Book corporation, the Amtorg Trading Corp., and (lie Soviet purchasing Commission, all of New York city. He said the Soviet legation in Ottawa also plncerl orders. "I sent committee agents down to the Patent Office to gc:, Ihesa orders and L have them here •• Thomas said.'"They are mosi interesting and we shall continue to investigate various phases of this matter." "Other orders requested such patents as bomb sights, pilot directors, range finding imd flight, director apparatus and thousands of other technical nnd military patents which will help in building Russia's military mtght,'' he said. - - ... ...

American imlenls hud ini;rea:,c<l tremendously since the nniinuiict- ment of the atomic b"in,>. He iiid this was because there were 10 many par's and \tnci.^s involved In making the boinh. "Therefore," he said, "ftursiii must unravel and :>ut toevther tliis jigsaw of processes lo get the- know-how, "Through our coddling policy or giving Russia our patented knowledge, she may well ho on her way to discovery of many, if indrcu not all of thei;8 thousamis (if industrial processes and secrets which constitute the (jrc:it secret of Hie atomic bomb." He said this country must, step the flow of scientific information out of this country or list ils very existence. Thomas also said it :s ridiculous for Russia to have 3.6<)li ofticial agents in this country while we have only about 210 uiiitl.il ];er- sonncl n Russia. 'The ratio, in other words, is 18 plus to one," he said. "This to my way of thinking is not realistic reciprocity." •This is a sample of 'the way Russia uses her allies. They iro mere birds to be picked cleavi and get nothing in return." r Brings MIGHTY FAST Long-lasting Relief In COUGHS t CHEST COLDS IHIHHM3 Getting dizzy and flat-footed chasing all over town . . . hoi-rowing h e r c, stalling there - , . because you've no cash to meet your bills'?
