The convictions resulted in sentences aggregating more than 437 years. The report cited as an example of the cases prosecuted one in which there were 22 convictions involving the loan officer of a gov ernment agency and officials am employes of a savings and loar company alleged to have inducei veterans to make false statement in order to secure low-cost govern ment-guaranteed loans for non veterans. • Another typical case, .Hoove: said, involved a series of prosecu tions in which a government em ploye and private citizens attempt ed to swindle Indians out of their rightful title to land contamin; valuable timber.

LODIS ) — The American British Remove Atomic Scientist From Post I Parents in Russia Create Possible Security Risk LONDON W) — The British government has transferred one of its atomic scientists, whose Russian mother and British father live in the Soviet Union, from his post at Britain's chief atomic research lab- atory. . A government announcement said the scientists, Russian-born Dr. Boris Davison, 42, has beeri given a year's leave of absence with pay from the highly secret Harwell nuclear fission laboratory. He wtl spend the year doing research at Birmingham University. British newspapers said his post was changed because the Cabinet feared Soviet agents might try to backmat him with threats against his parents in Rssia. The Daily Express said the Cabinet feared "if Dr. Davison were } kept in his job, extreme anti-Com- I munists in America might see the fact as 'proof that British security is bad. That might ruin negotiations to widen the interchange of atomic secrets with Britain." The Conservative Daily Telegraph added that Davison's "reliability has never been in question," Davidson was an early associate of Dr. Kaus Fuchs and took over many of the la tier's duties after Fuchs was sentenced to 14 years imprisonment as a Communist spy. The Daily Express said .British security officers screened Davison cosey after Fuchs was arrested and again after Dr. Brno Pontecorvo, another Harwell scientist, lied behind the Iron Curtain 2& years ago. "Athough United States atomic authorities had been told about Dr. Davison's plight," the Express said j "they did not press for his dismissal."
