Transcript :•-. Part IV (Conclusion) m ITF.R being lold mv wife and I woulel fi soon face Dr. Oppenheimer and his wife, forces went into action behind the scenes, and the planned hearings were called off. Senators McCarran and Jenner stated lasl year thai the evidence they had collected regarding Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer was turned over lo "governmenl security agencies." Thai ev idence. of course, included mv testimony in executive hearings on May !!. 1951. In June eif 1951 the California Senate Fact-Finding Committee on 1 n-Ameri- can Activities released its printed reporl with seventy-four pages devoted to the Oakland hearings where Svlvia and I had testified. Tin- comprehensive reporl was carefully studied by proplr in all intelligence agencies and undoubtedly had an important influence on events lo follow. At one placi- (page 201) the California committee report -eiid: The committee realizes, of course, that descriptions ol underground eieiivitie's on the pent nf Communists sound very eeiiirli like- cloak-and-dagger hysteria to the average American layman who bee- no experience eiliui3 these lines. The committee eain onlv state in the utmost sincerity eeml with tin' hope that revelations in tbe field ol espionage in this country will operate t<» make our pre.pie realize tbat sue'li activities e!<e ^ee em in secrecy... tlieet eili nt the material presented in tl.is reporl .'em be completely eunl thoroughly documented l.v -mum. testimony and ilulv authenticated documents in the committee's possession. The next major developmenl in the untold Oppenheimer story took placi eil.eiul one year later, in the spring of 1952. ll weis in connection with the in- di.iniriii of Dr. Joseph W.

Al the housewarming, Sieve' Nelson, Dr. Weinlierg. and Dr. J. Iteele- ert Oppenheimer had all been present and had talked with each other in mv hearing. In Mav. I'll'). Dr. Weinberg heed denied this jlt sworn testimony be. fore the House- I ainiuiillrr. eunl hr swore he never belonged to the Communist parly or Young Communisl League and had never met Sieve Nelson in California. I In- House Committee recommended perjury prosecution of Dr. Weinberg, eiml fnr this purpose grand jury investigations were made in the spring of 1952. Immediately before I went before the grand jury to testify, one of the gnvrrn- mcnl prosecutors remarked In mc "There is someone I want you in meet." I accompanied him to ihe office of As- sisieml U.S. Attorney William Hills.
