Transcript —Wide World Photo l*jiul Crouch (above) waa the fir^i iiKiii publicly to accuse Robert Oppenheimer of Communisl party activity. Crouch is no <\- Communist who left the part* during World War 11. H** lias appeared before juries, grand juries, and investigating committees sixty-three times. Drew Pearson, the Alsop brothers, and Harvey Matusow have said that Crouch is unreliable. Mo»t of wiiat Crouch said aboul Oppenheimer in 1930 and 19,"51 has been corroborated hy later testimony, including that of Dr. Oppenheimer. Certain Items are still in douht. Crouch has never heen indicted for perjury or eited for eon tempt. lie has nol claimed the Fifth Amendment or reversed his testimony. The Alsops wrote in April. 1954: "...if it does turn out that Dr. Oppenheimer MHO* a secret (loin mu nist throughout the time lie «ras running the Los Alamos alomie project, informer Crouch will he thoroughly vindicated — though the nation may well despair. Since then the Gray Hoard and lhe Atomie Energy Commission have determined that Oppenheimer i- a security risk. Crouch has filed suit against the \en York IIc raid Tribune for 9500,000 for publishing and distributing attacks on him by the Alsop brothers. Crouch has notified Pearson that he will sue him if Pearson does not retract certain statements about Crouch. A key episode i" this affair is a Communist party meeting in Berkeley, California, in July. 1911. Crouch, then a Communisl party leader, was the speaker, lie and his wife, SyKia, later said that they -aw Oppenheimer at that meet ing. though at the time they did nol know who he was. Oppenheimer has denied having attended the meeting. THE UNTOLD OPPENHEIMER STORY by Paul Crouch 4>|| has the mind of a genius!" I 11 thought, as everyone's attention fo- cused "ii ei thin, tense, wiry man seated directly in front of the fireplace. His questions—difficult feu mv to answer revealed true understanding of Communist philosophy and theory. Ilr was hurling questions at me in quirk succession: "How can we In- sure iluil Creat Britain will not double-cross the Soviet Union? I agree iheit ur musl give all-out aid to the Soviel I nion. Bul should we also aid the imperialisl governmenl of Greal Britain? Do we nol now have two wars one' ei continuation .,f lln- imperialisl war between Germany and Great Britain, tbe other a peoples war between Germany and the Soviet I nion?" These were not easy questions for any Communist party leader to answer eit lhat lime I had lo go back to the most fundamental points of Marxian theory lo answer thrnt iii a convincing way. Apparently everyone present, including the intent stranger, finally weis satisfied wilh the new line and the reasons for it. Utrr the meeting was adjourned the brilliant questioner can ver to where I stood and talked wilh me for perhaps inn minutes, discussing the new developments in the international situation and tin- Communist party's analysis of the turn of events. As he walked away Kenneth May, who had been standing near us, remarked, "He is a very famous scientist." People were not introduced to each other at party meetings of that nature. I did not know then in 1941 that the name of the "famous scientist" was Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer. To understand the amazing anil bizarre facts eiliinil Hi. I. Robert Op- penheimer, his wife and brother, and also to make an objective appraisal ol the siiiii'-s eef Soviet espionage, it is necessary in both case's lo en back twenty-seven years. An idea in the mind of a Russian-born scientist. Marcel Scherer, in the summer of 1928 has already done much to change the entire course of history; and it is still too early to tell the ultimate outcome. It could yet lead to the doom of our nation and of civilization. 1 musl lake the reader back to 1928, otherwise the rest of my story would make little sense. The importance "I even seemingly irrelevant points will I"'' come ule\ietus as the story unfolds. In 1928 I was a leading Communis' official, head of the national department of the party for infiltration of the armed forces. This departmenl stnl selected Reds into the Army, Navy, National Guard, ROTC, and all other 1,ranches of the military services.
