Break Soviet Spy Ring Vrp \.lt 17/vra tf 11 m \ • i _ . .--... . .. **_.' ^^ NEW YORK (UP) - A top pro- duc'er of frothy Hollywood musicals has turned up as the hero in a real-life spy story more fantastic fhan movie' fiction. Boris Morrps, a Russian . born musical prodigy, appears to have operated for at least 13 years as a IJ.S. agent within a Soviet spy ring: And, on at least one occasion, he \valked a double-dealing tightrope to the heart ,ot the conspiracy—a Moscow/ spy meeting. The espionage network is crumbling today before his testimony to- a federal grand jury here. , Morros' part in the spy network •was shadowy when the first arrests were made here in January. U.S. Atty. Paul W. Williams said this week he is "a loyal American citizen who has been working for the government." '; For a time he spied between acts of his song and dance movies. For almost 10 years he appears to have covered furtive meetings with Russian . spies and American traitors In. the champagne-party atmosphere of a "big deal" man vagabonding across Europe and America. List Some Results Old-time associates figure the of the spy ring—spawned in Mos cow in 1940 by Russian hangman Lavrehti ,P. Beria" and operating "to this date"—are still before the special federal grand jury. Here are a few results to date: —Three persons, Jack and Myra Soble and Jacob Albam, have pleaded guilty to espionage. They are believed.to be testifying .with tell ,the following story of the spy ring and Morros' part in it: Beria summoned Soble to Mos- cow'in 1940 and sent him 'to the United States on a spy mission. He arrived,, by way of Japan, in 1941. In 1944, Mor-ros. was summoned from Hollywood to a New York meeting with Vassili M. Zubilin,- then about to leave his z " wlin > s to have told 62-year-old Morros also had a York theatres.

Zlatovski, are claiming asylum in Paris from an indictment charging them, with spying against .the United States from trusted U.S. intelligence jobs. —At least 14 -Russian nationals, i* addition to the Aow-dead Beria, have been named publicly as spies. A number of them had held embassy' or- consular posts .in the United States. ' Morros was born in czarist Russia, Jan. 1, 1895. His father was conductor of the Imperial Symphony Orchestra and Morros later succeeded him in that post. • In 1922,' Morros left Communist Russia for hte United States and became a citizen.

(In this wartime .year, Morros' father, .^hen about 85, was permitted to come to the United States from Russia.) The indictments record no further meetings between Soble and Morros until 1947, in New York. From that time on, he figures prominently in the meetings and passage of spy documents between all the alleged conspirators.,_,He met Soble in Paris in June, li)49, and a month later in Zurich, Switzerland. • • In February, 1950, the indictments say, this capitalist refugee •from Russian communism "did meet..in an apartment in Moscow" withjBeria's spy lieutenant and two other Russians. In 1951, 1952, and 1953, Morros met with Soble, the Zlatovskis and various Russians, mostly .in Vienna, sometimes in New York.
