British Say 300,000 /Slaves' of Soviets Mine Uranium Ore BHUJN, Aug. J4. C*>)—The British charged today that 300,000 German "slave" laborer* under t "communist whiplash ire mining uranium or »—««enc* of itomk bomb*—night «nd day in East Germany "for *h« icle benefit ot the Russian war machine.' ,4 ' "Millions of tons of German ura-4> l^itum ore" for the Soviet if being • Produced in "Uttle Siberia" prison . camp conditions, said a report by British Control Commission authorities. Unskilled, Impressed labor is paid less than |2 weekly, it was said. Detailing the "frantic" 24-hour»-day operations' inside barbed-wire enclosed shafts, the British statement observed: "The only beneficiaries of this extravagant drive are the Russians. The East German economy gets nothing out of It, but is even disrupted by the inexhaustible demands. "It can only be concluded that the Russians are in urgent need of. uranium for purposes other than peaceful reconstruction." The British report commented that this compaign "supplies Soviet Russia with the essence of the atom bomb which they so vociferously condemn." The report noted: Five thousand NKVD (secret police) agents are on the staff of the Russian-controlled Wlsmuth A. G. monopoly which operates the uranium mines- In East Germany. Extreme security is maintained, to the extent that East Germans having relatives in the Western Zone no longer lire permitted Into the mines. The all-powerful Wismuth has Immunity from all German courts, with i^ite and death power over' miners. Authority over all public and private property, and all the East German funds it needs. Labor Conscripted The "slave" labor is conscripted In various ways, according to the British report. German Red party leaders fill the corporation's manpower demands. The miners are culled from criminals and political opponents, or simply shanghaied. In other fields workers are laid oft, then tapped for the uranium work- Ings. Their food ration cards are taken away if they refuse, the British analysis said. Males 17 to 50 years old are draft-, ed. Women workers range from 18 to.&5. Included in the uranium labor force ire a few "volunteer" blue- shirt .German Communists under > 17 years of age. The British report said mothers "also have been put to work In the pita, barred from visiting their, children except under special permission. "Squalid living conditions and meager pay are said to be the rule. The average wage of the unskilled uranium laborer i* reported to be less than 18 a month. So-called jjtllte" workers .get up to »56 ^Fonthly. Many miners suffer from the occupational disease of lung cancer. Russian doctors rule laborers able to continue to work if they are only half-disabled, said the British report, adding: "Hospitals are full of miners who have either sustained injuries or fallen ill."
