PAGE 1.0-THE BAYTOWN SUN, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 4, 1952 m J tte 1 Editor's Note: Following is the second dispatch on scan^ dais inside the USSR. -By DONALD J. GONZALES " WASHINGTON, June 4 Ofr—The exploits of one N. F. Timofeyev give a slightly silly cast to communism's holier-than-thou attitude to"ward graft in capitalist countries. * Timofeyev was a confidence man. •His range was the Soviet union. ^Russian press stories about him •-read like comic opera — except jtifat they appear to be fact instead •of fiction. published by the Soviet newspaper Pravda (Truth*. An issue of the newspaper recently received and translated here gives a play-byplay account of his swindles. , The story was illustrated with Timofeyev's picture, circled, flanked by photographs of six of the seven bureaucrats who tumbled to his true nature only' after he had made fools of them. The picture caption is "lei's become acquainted." American observers were astounded that the Soviet hierarchy would permit publication of Timofeyev went up and down the quite so monumental a record of •embezzlement. The Soviets presumably aired the case in line with for five years passing himself off successfully as an expert 'engineer. He duped seven key So- their avowed Communist practice >viet industrialists, eluded the O f self-criticism, ^vaunted secret police, thieved 167,"187 rubles,v and built himself a house out of government materials. -.Moscow has told Timofeyev's story in an extraordinary article or Atom Isotopes WASHINGTON. June 4 of atomic energy in cancer treatment and research "has developed "so rapidly'' that free government distribution of radioactive materials for such purposes is no longer -warranted.' " The Atomic Energy Commission 'announced Wednesday that on July l it will start charging 20 percent of production costs for radio- Isotopes used in the study, diagnosis, or treatment of cancer. -Since -1945 the AEC has been dis- "tributing such materials, byproducts of the atomic bomb project, free 'of, any charge for production costs-to persons using them in the field of cancer!" All the users paid was the cost of transportation. The AEC's objective was to encourage use of radioactive materi- "als against cancer. That objective has been realized, the AEC said. * "The field has developed so rap"idly that certain clinical applications of radioisotopes now have become a matter^ of routine.' ' the AEC explained, "and research workers have- become fully aware of the -usefulness of these -atomic tools in cancer research." ; Since 1948 the AEC has given away more than SL.4 million worth lof radioactive materials in its can- -cer program. 1 This represents only a part of -the commission's anti-cancer work. Jn the year starting July 1, it plans to spend a record $2.7 million in support of cancer research. This will include S450.000 for the cancer Isotopes program. Even when the 20 per cent of cost charge goes in effect, cancer workers will get radioactive materials a lot cheaper than do researchers in other fields. For example, a bit of radioactive gold that would cost anyone else 24 cents will cost the cancer worker enly a nickle. But in so doing they per nutted revelation of costly bureaucratic bungling and also disclosed that the Kremlin is worried about citizens of the "classless society" who still put personal gain above Communist principles. The May 16 issue of Pravda reported that Timofeyev finally was found out and punished by being "sentenced to 25 years in a corrective labor camp." The fate of the seven industrial figures, who permitted him to make "hats'.' (Russian for "suckers") out of them, is not disclosed. Timofeyev got tired of hum-drum work back in 1947. Contrary to all Communist party principles, he applied for work as a construction engineer in Ryazan oblast (province), representing himself to be a man of. no mean abilities. He abandoned the trust's hospitable hearth after having meanwhile grabbed 10.000 rubles of government money," Pravda said. Next, he showed up at a lumbering enterprise in Kemerov. oblast. He left behind a home he had built from materials taken from, the lumbering trust. Timofeyev pulled off the same stunt seven times in all. amassing a total of 167,187 rubles. Addressing the seven officials bilked by Timofeyev, Pravda : voiced this editorial plaint: "You did not ask the simple and natural question—who is he?" any Trouble Spots In Europe Ana Pauker Gets Doing Oki CHICAGO.

First of all, just where do we have "powder keg" situations? The No. 1 spot could be Germany where East Germans might be induced to attack West Germans in a sort of "holy" war to unite the nation by force if necessary. Another could be Iran where the Communist Tudeh party has been outlawed but still is probably the strongest and most active party in the country. Iran's tottering economy could suffer a fatal blow through a crop failure — a real possibility this year because of the locust plague threatening the whole Middle East.
