ZLOTOWSKI-NEWMAN MEETING Mr. Tavenner: During the course of your term as Director of the Bureau of Standards, did you become acquainted with a person by the name of Ignace Zlotowski ? Dr. Condon: Well, I am not sure exactly when I first met him. He was a member of the American-Soviet Science Society, and I may have had a letter or two and he came down to see me during the first year I was in Washington, and he being in New York at the time. In the summer of 1916 he was on ihe official Polish delegation as observer al the naval atomic bomb test at Bikini, and I had nothing to do with lhat in the sense of accrediting him. He was there; I saw him there. I saw him and several times subsequently in Washington. Mr. Tavenner: Well, during the course of your acquaintanceship with him, did he ever request informal ion from us as to the manner through which microfilms and photostats or journals deposited with the Bureau of Standards could be obtained? Dr. Condon: No. Mr. Tavenner: Did you also become acquainted with a person by the name of Helen Harris, an employee of the Polish Embassy? Dr. Condon: Yes. Mr. Tavenner: Did you at any time in response to a request by her arrange a meeting between Zlotowski and James Roy Newman? iA< people f"''" 'j^inie 01T to thi: Communist-d' lembers of tl»'jrjv, id even that Kililcd. and il has stood up aspects.

I have forgotten whether she had a part in it or not. Mr. Tavenner: What was the purpose of that meeting? Dr. Condon: Just ordinary social acquaintance, connected with a common interest in atomic energy. Mr. Tavenner: Who requested the introduction? Dr. Condon: I think it sounds much more formal when you speak about re- questing an introduction. As I recall the circumstances. Zlotowski came to visit me one evening for a call at a time when I was myself expecting to go over and call on James Newman, and before going over I called up to ask if it was all right to bring this fellow over, saying he is an interesting person, or something of that sort. It was as casual as that, just of bringing people together. Mr. Tavenner: That would have been at your initiative then rather than that of Zlotowski. if it happened that way. Dr. Condon: Yes, you know how social things go. I perhaps asked his permission, would he like to spend the evening with Newman, before calling Newman up. and I don't know just quite how that was. Mr. Tavenner: Have you read the testimony of General Isadore Modelski, former military attache of the Polish Embassy in Washington, who testified under oath that lo his knowledge Ignace Zlotowski while in the I niled States was engaged in espionage on behalf of the Polish government? Dr. Condon: No, I haven't seen that. Is that public testimony of this committee? I haven't seen it. . . . 955 —Wide World Photo New atomic research giant on hilltop at Berkeley. Calif.
