Transcript THE UNTOLD OPPENHEIMER STORY (Continued from Page '■'■) '"rk weis lhe aforementioned chemist, unreel Scherer, who had been ill the '•uniniunisl party for years einel alneulv ".is known and highly regarded by top "'"ders of the lu-ii movement. In conversation with me one day. Scherer j'dvo.nced a new and original idea—the es- 'blishmenf of a secret national department °" the party for work among scientists and Coordination of the activities of Red memo's who were experts in scientific fields. there were two central objectives of '"' daring idea advanced by Scherer. 'he first would be to obtain and trans- n"l to the Soviet government all seien- ''" knowledge developed in the United pistes and to make' sure thai the American government would never have any Military or other knowledge in scientific '.''us that would not be known to the K"inlin. the second objective vvas to bring .is ";"iy scientists as possible into the "fty or ils fronts so that they would j?botage any war againsl the Soviel , "'on or other "unjust" war. iTianis- J"'d from Communist phraseology into I er)'day English, "unjust war" means '' brief anv weir thai does mil advance "'" interests of the Soviet government a"^ hasten the world revolution.) to ^''hcriT presented considerable data ni1' on the role of science in modern 'Tfare anil seliel that se ii-nli-tr- would be °re essential to military victory than | other group of the population. weis completely convinced emd |J|,,''d th.- mallei -I hi immediatel) Ween up w ith the top leaders of the ll'"'.v and with ihe representatii es of e Communist International. j( * few il.ns later I was presenl al con' ,.'""- in national part) headquarters He" n' Scherer outlined his plan and ii was immediately approved.

Following the return of Scherer and his Russian-born wife and assistant. Lena, to the I nited States, the progress ol the department be headed wees rapid, and soon extended into every scientific field. It was extremely secret and hush- hush: most party members and secondary leaders being unaware of its existence. Partly as a cover for it and partly lo esieiblish an importanl new front for the parly. Scherer formed an organiza- Ben Gold lion called the' I'ALCT Federation of \rchitects, Engineers. 1 die mists, ami Technicians. When Red leaders like Harry Bridges and Ben Gold became members of the Executive Committee of the CIO, it even became possible to obtain a "union charter" for Scherer's organization! The charter gave this Red apparatus for espionage and potential sabotage both an aura of respectability and an entree into the most vital fields of military research, like the radiation laboratory of the University of California and the research laboratories of Shell Development in Alameda County. lhe growth of Scherer's apparatus and its infiltration into the scientific field were closely paralleled by lhe creation anel expansion of another ami allied front with similar reed objectives. In the mid-thirties, Waller \1. Trumbull, who had hy then succeeded me as head of lhe department for infiltration of lhe armed forces, played a leading role in planning and supervising lhe formation of the Consumers I nion (until very re- centlv on the list of organizations cited as subversive and Communist-controlled by the House Committee on I n- American Activities). Arthur Kallel and Dr. Harold Aaron have' 1 n the chief oflieial leaders ol the Communist-created Consumers I n- ion from the lime il was founded until the presenl moment. Dr. Aaron, head of the Consumers I nion medical depart- ment. was for years mv personal pbvsi- e'ian assigned by lhe national office eif the Communist party to treat me withoul fees when I was a leading lied official. I have participated in importanl policy conferences with both Dr. Aaron and Air. Kallel. and I have firsthand knowledge' of lhe real aims of the organization headed by them.
