No Exports Licensed
At a news conference today.
Secretary of State Acheson said
the State department licensed no
exports of atomic materials to
Russia without prior approval
from the Manhattan project (the
wartime name for the atomic
bomb project.) Acheson also said
he knew of no state department
documents going to the Russians,
Rep. Walter (D-Pa) asked
Groves about Hopkins.
Groves said that no one at the
White House ever tried to get
maps from him "that I was aware
of' and he added that he doubted
"very seriously" lf.it was ever
He commented that It was very
easy to get maps of Oak Ridge if
they did not contain aeians es

Groves said that he had never
had any contact with Harry Hop

"I do know, of course, Mr. Hop
gins knew about this project. But
as for any dealings with me or
with my subordinates, they never

"I could have gotten It from

you know, were giving informa.

Groves did not say who he
meant by tne reference to scien.
Wallaoe's Name Brought In
The name of former Vice Presi

as that of Hopkins, has come into
the inquiry. Fulton Lewis Jr., the
radio commentator, said Wallace
had used his influence to get
atomic materials lor tne Russians.
Wallace has denied that and
asked the House committee to
Lewis said Monday night on
the radio that Wallace overruled
Groves and was the power behind
the scenes who got uranium ship
ments for Russia. President Tru
man fired Wallace out of the
cabinet In 1946 In a disagreement
over this country's policy toward
me soviet union.
Wallace called the Lewis state
ment "sheerest fabrication" and
said It was "part of his unremit

Roosevelt's name hadn't come up

Stable Policy Needed
O'Mahoney said there is a great
need to stabilize conditions for
those who put money inio new
businesses. "We want a tax
policy," he said, "that will pre
serve the open door to new enter
prise." A small business advisory com
mittee recommended yesterday
that Congress set up a government-directed
plan to Insure
private bank loans to small busi
ness. The committee said such an
insurance plan could be financed
by a one and one-naif percent
insurance premium on all loans.
The members said banks would
then be in a position to make
loans which they cannot afford
to make now.
They argued such a plan would
open the way for small business
to get much-needed capital and
there would be no risk for the
b. nks or for the government.
They said the insurance pre
miums would cover losses. It
would be patterned after the FHA
