Transcript Whut they're saying i I -S& -. m about FACTS FORUM ... We are exceedingly interested in what we as Americans can do about the growing apathy. . .. Mrs. E. H, Hampson 6202 S. Morrill Ave., Whittier, Calif. I think you are very optimistic in thinking you can waken the American public to more interest and action .. . Personally, I render deep thanks for your most informative broadcasts and wish you luck. Mrs. R. W. Brink 269 Weirfield St., Brooklyn. N. Y. You are to be commended for your work in "the battle to preserve freedom," and I concur that "Facts Forum is everyone's organization". Saul C. Roemer 741 First National Bank Bldg-, Houston 2, Texas You are doing a magnificent work in informing the American people of the true facts of the events in the making. Belle Thomson 78 Rockland Ave., Yonkers, N. Y. . . . would appreciate receiving copies of your radio broadcasts which have been given mi "ronimunism." W. L. Richardson, Supt. Safety and Protection Division, Carbide and Carbon Chemicals Co., P. 0. Box P, Oak Ridge, Tenn. 1 listen every Sunday night to your broadcasts and I think, with Voltaire: "Was there ever so abominable a fellow? He exposes truth so odiously; he sets before our eyes the arguments on both sides with horrible impartiality; he is so intolerably clear and plain that he enables people who have only common sense to doubt, and even to judge." I loved the way you trimmed Time down.... Miss Elizabeth Winslow 1330 L St., N. W., Washington, D. C. ... an excellent and inspiring discourse.... I would like it for my files at the Girl Scout office. Mrs. H. B. Norwood P. 0. Box 1282, Decatur, Ala. ... would appreciate a reprint to have in our office reception room.... Dr. and Mrs. Ernest B. Decker Atlantic Bldg., 550 Seabreeze Blvd.. Daytona Beach, Fla. ...would like to extend my congratulation- to your organization and its; sponsors for the excellent work that you have done. Howard R. Parker 619 Buckalew St., Dallas 8, Texas Keep up the good work and send us Facts Forum News for the coming year. Bess Stinson, Special Servicw First National Bank of Arizona, Phoenix, Ariz. Page 52 pic v GROVES' TESTIMONY (Continued from Page 40) Groves, would you say that represented on Dr. Oppenheimer's part an honest judgment as to what in his opinion would produce the best operating results among the scientists on the project? A. . . . Here I am just giving my surmise as to what I thought. First, that he personally felt that was right in view of his background of academic work. Second, that he felt it was necessary in order to attract the kind of men lhat he felt he had to have at Los Alamos. I agreed that it was a very decided factor ... in getting such men. I also felt that In- was very much influenced at that time by . .. Dr. Condon, who was for a very brief time the associate director there and, as you all know, a very complete disappointment to me in every respect. I would like to emphasize now .. . that 1 was not responsible for the exact selection of Dr. Condon but I was responsible .. . because 1 insisted when Dr. Oppenheimer took the directorship that he have as his No. 1 assistant an industrial scientist; and we just made a mistake when we selected Dr. Condon. Who gave his name the first time. I don't know. but Dr. Condon turned out to he not an industrial scientist, but an academic scientist with all of the faults and none of the virtues. That was my opinion. He did a tremendous amount of damage at Los Alamos in the initial setup. How much influence he had on Dr. Oppenheimer I don't know. But he was given certain responsibilities with my full approval- in fact, you might say my very insistent suggestion—that Dr. Condon with the industrial background should be the one to establish the work- ing rules and the administrative scientific rules .. . while Dr. Oppenheimer was thinking about how the actual scientific work was to be done. I could never make up my own mind as to whether Dr. Oppenheimer was the eeiii- who was primarily at fault in breaking up the compartmentalization or whether it was Dr. Condon.... Q. How long was Dr. Condon on the project? A. I think a very short time ... my impression would be only six weeks to two months. . . . His departure, of course, was at his own volition. I always thought it was because he- thought the project would fail and he was not going to be associated with it. His record showed since then he has never been satisfied anywhere he was. He was always moving. It was a mistake to get him out there ... for which the responsibility was maybe 75 per cent mine and 25 per cent Oppenheimer's; or maybe my » was even more than that. .. becausi would never have been there if 1 not told Oppenheimer what kind ol sistant he should have... . ***** Interrogator: Chairman Gray Q.
