He cited Investigations a Senate sub-committee he headed rmdc of Reconstruction Finance Corporation, the government's big lending agency.

The side-bet was Canada's atom- c project established in 1943, to nvestlgate the feasibility of producing plutonium — a potential K>mb-material—by a process dif- ering from the 'one chosen by the United States for the same objec- ive. Back-Stop Provided The idea was. Canadian sclcnt- sts told me. that if Ihe method chosen by the Americans .didn't pan out, the Canadian project might provide a back-stop. The problem involved a choice of material to slow down neutrons in a pile of uranium and thus sus- ain a chain-reaction resulting in the production of plutonium. y The Americans chose graphite, a 'orm of carbon, because it was much more plentiful and readily available than the principal alternative substance—"heavy water." Britain. Canada and the United States agreed on concentrating the heavy water research project in 'anada. U.S. Furnishes Water The United States furnished some of its scientists, and also supplied She heavy water—an undisclosed smount, but Canadian scientists told me it was all that'was available to the Allies at the time. But Dr. C. J. MacKenzie, scientific head of Canada's project implied that America's participation in the project was reduced Hfter the war.
