PACT TWELVE BT^TTHEVTLLE f ARK.T OOTJKTFR N1CWS THURSDAY, OCTOBER 86, MM Missing -Atomic Expert Could Get $500,000 By ARTHUR I. tDSON 4 WASHINGTON, Oct. 26. (If) — Britain's missing atomic scientist, Dr. Bruno Pontccorvo, could collect .more than $500,000 (rom the U.S. government it all his claims for development of the A-bomb were allowed. As you doubtlew know, Pontelor- TO has mysteriously disappeared. Reports from Rome—so far unconfirmed—say he and hts family have •kipped to Russia. A check here today showed that Pontecorvo i* one of a group of jclcnllsts who say their patent on fissionable materials — the stuff atomic bombs are made of—was taken over by the government. They have filed claims for: $10.000,000, In the U.S. Court of Claims. $000,000, In the Atomic Energy Commission, The Court of Claims suit wns filed Aug. 21. Nothing has happened there yet. A preliminary report ay an Atomic Energy Commission board doubted [he validity of the claims, but no final action was taken. A~ lawyer for the scientists', Lawrence J.' Bernard, gave a reporter this background: Student: in "HO* The scientists were together at (he University of Rome back In the 'SOs. Seven of them shared In the work, either as professor or student. Best known of the scientists: Dr. Enrico Fermi, who won a Nobel Prize for his work on lisslonable material. None ot the scientists were business men, and they left that part of the work to O. M. Glannlnl, who had come to this country. He set up the G. M. Gianninl Co., Inc., of Pasadena. Calif. It was agreed they'd nil share equally from any proceeds, one share for Olannini, the rest for the seven scientists. Bernard said Pontecorvo later disposed of half pt his Interest, leaving him with a one-sixteenth share. One-sixteenth doesn't sound like much, but It would amount to ««1,2SO In a kitty of J10.900.000. Whether he could collect Jt—where- ever he Is—is another question. The patent was granted to G. M. Oianninl, Inc. The suit also was filed by the corporation. The Atomic Energy Act of 194« U the key to the suits. Th»t ywr Congress decided that the government, noi private Industry, should be respofulble for the development of atomic energy for military .weapons. All-pa tents were revoked in this" field, and the law •aid just ,'oomperifiatiott would be :pflki, Bernard contends in hb suit that: 1. The patent WM used before the Atomic Energy Act was passed, and th*' •clentlst* should b« paid for It. I. Th« patent has been used since • the act was passed, and the provides the scientists should be paid for . tfeat, too. Bernard said he'd met Ponte • eorvo only once, when they discuss id the claims. He said he was as surprised ac anybody when Ponte- eorro's name bobbed up In the news. Southern U.S. Is Still Most Populous Area ATLANTA, Oct. 26.
