(XPJ _ American atomic secrecy in so light that Canada, a wartime partner on the A-bomb project, Is prevented from getting "practically anything the Russians can't act." So «aya Dr. . c. J. MacKenzie, scientific chler o( the Dominion's atomic project. He declares that exchange of m- lorination between the two countries Is "in essence, a one-way How of trariic".--from Canada's direction—and that he believes "Ihls b very much to the disadvantage of the United plates." Information Called "Vital" Asserting (hat Canada has given all it* atomic information to the United States, and: that he considers tome ol H 'Vital to the Americana in their future plans," MacKenzie declared with reference to th« lalter type: "We never have an opportunity to see how they na« it and they fry*? be making a lot ot mistakes fc-hlch w« could correct." He was re/erring specifically to information about, the development and uee or a device which constitute, the "heart" ol Canada's program." i h Superior" It U in •torn-splitting reactor or "furnace," having an Intensity ot atomic rayi superior ( to thsjt ol •ny reactor «o far disclosed br th« Arnarlcaru. With it, Canadian «cl«ntlsts say, they h»T« learned how plutonliun. A-bomb material, can be made f»3t«r than it l» mad> by tht Amerl- ca aproc«M. But they also say their P******* Mackor can produce only "»m»n quBntltiM" of plutorUwn and that »y«n In a larger reactor now bring BuiH. they dp not plan t« prodtiM It In larg* amount*. "It'i a Suggestion" Dr. M*cK.« t iai« •mphuiled that, regarding Information wehangt, h« •wa* not •poaktng critically b»t rather to mggMt th> pnatlblllty of a "disadvantage" to fh« United StatM. Saying the attuaiion wu dm to tha MoMahon Act — th* American JjWmlo mngj (xmtrol law which lw»lt» tb« amount at Information th« tmltod atatea can transmit to oth«r na«on»—Mackeral* declarad: "lt'» no* tha fault of IndirlduaU fc tti« ADoartean atomld program IV* ttx aet that prwwiU them •^•a f*'i*# men Information."

"Th»re'» nothing about tht bomb that would help our research, but 01 ir Teiearch might help makers of the bomb." Kuutan* act II, To* Dr. Mackenzie, president of Canada'! National Research Council and of the rx,rflf n i O n.,, Atomic energy Control Board AECB, said the McMahon Act "prevents u« from getting practically anything Die Russians can't set. "Wlien information Is taken off the secret list by the American it's open to the world. In (he classified secret field, the information available to us Is very, very limited. "There's not very much distinction between what's given to one's friends and one's enemies." But lie did say Canada is getting complete cooperation "within the limits" of the McMahon Act. Mackenzie told me lie believes Canada, if it wished, could make "one bomb" In from "one to twenty years" depending upon the amount of technological effort put into It. But- he said "quantity" production of bombs would "not, be feasible" for Canada because it would entail a marshalling of national resources "which no sane person would suggest" He added: "There is' no scientific secret nbotit the atomic bomb and no technological secret that any nation having bomb materials and sufficiently competent and extensive technology couldn't ferret out In time. Anyone Can Build One "Published material that has come out of the United states would make It possible for anyone having fissionable material - and sufficient technologv-to make one bomb. "But whether that would be In on* or 20 years Is another question." Other points developed In the Interview with Mackenzie or In talks with oficfialB at Canada's atomic plant at chalk Hlver Ont include: "! 1. Canada has a unique atomic furnace - the world's "hottest" known reactor from the standpoint of radioactivity produced at any one given time in a given area. And the dominion Is now building a «nd mor« powerful on« SpecUl Water milled Th. uniqueness of the exlstin d«vice l!ei In tht fact that It em ploy« a «pec!al kind of water calle "heavy water" to keep a chain re action going In a pile of uranlun fuel. In contrast, all known Ameri can reactors of high power emplo graphite, a form of carbon, for thl purpose. Either "heavy water" or graph ite serves the purpose of slowing down or moderating high-speei neutrons-or atomic bullets-initiall released by the splitting of uranium atoms. This reduced soeed pro motes further splitting of othe uranium atoms so that » chain re action is maintained. But heav water is more efficient than graph Ite because its atoms are closer tc the size of a neutron. Fewer IVecitroru Absorbed Also, heavy water absorbs lewe neutrons than rtoes graphite ana thus Is more efficient at keeping these neutron.-; at work maintaining Hie dtoniic "fire." 2. Since It has more neutron available In a given space at i given time, the Canadian device can produce Plutonium faster from a given amount of uranium than can any other known reactor. 3. Also. Its champion radioactive iotnea" makes it possible for th. Canadian device to produce radioactive Isotopes having higher Intensity of atomic rays than thos, producible anywhere else. Cobalt Is Spectacular Most spectacular of these - although still very limited In quan tity-ls radioactive cobalt. This can be fabricated Into "bombs" for treatment of cancer as a more efficient substitute for much more expensive radium and for high-energy X-ray machines. 4. Canada Is not developing atomic bombs nor any other military aspect* of atomic energy. The objective of her program is the "furtherance of the peacetime uses" of such energy, including the ques for practical Industrial power. Tomorrow: Canada'!* atomic plant could b« mistaken for a factory making babies' rompert. Arkansas Nen>s Briefs— Couple Told Only Son Listed As ROW After Report of Death By TBF. ASSOCIATE!!
