The three members found Oppenheimer a loyal American and discreet but, by 2-1 vote, Gray and Morgan against Evans, decided he shouldn't be trusted with secrets. The hearings were made public last night. Oppenheimer's lawyers appealed to the full five-man AEC to review the findings of the board and reverse them.
