Many German War Secrets
Unearthed By Americans
WASHINGTON, Aug. 26—(£>)—
Anti-radar coatings for submarines
and synthetic butter made from
coal were among Germany's “inner
war secrtes” unearthed by Allied
scientists, the Office of War In
formation reported today.
Many of the Nazi developements
were being adopted for use against
Japan when the war ended, OWI
said, adding that many could be
applied to postwar use and that
some processes might “shortly
make some American technical
processes obselete and outmoded.”
The report based on disclosures
by the British and American tech
nical men who followed combat
troops closely into the battered
Reich—said without amplification
that the Germans had made
“significant progress” in the devel
opment of an atomic bomb and
that they had:
1. Contemplated a piloted rocket
missile with a possible range oi
3,000 miles, designed to span the
Atlantic in 17 minutes.
2. Been working on a formula
for new war gasses that they hoped
would prove more deadly than any
chemical yet developed.
3. Developed a system of radar
camouflage consisting of anti-radar
coverings and coatings for submar
ines and weapons.
4. Employed processes for syn
thetic rubber- manufacture which
now are being made available to
U. S. manufacturers.
5. Produced a synthetic butter
from coal, and also from coal made
beverage and industrial alcohol,
aviation lubricants, soaps and
gasoline. (The report said the Ger
man formula might make it
possible eventually to produce a
gasoline from coal that would “cost
little-more than the standard pet
6. Developed liquid propellants
to prevent the detection of the
wake of torpedoes and designed
air torpedoes of the “skip” type.
But the report said that while the
Nazi secrets would have saved the
Allies many millions of dollars for
research and scientific develop
ment if the war had continued
through 1945 or longer, they didn’t
do the Germans much good.
German invention was far ahead
of her capacity to translate theory
into industry,” it was stated. “The
rapid advances of the Allied armies
prevented her from putting into
practice many of the technologic j
advances evolved in the labora
tories of her scientists."
Today's report was issued on
behalf of military authorities and
members of the Combined Intelli
gence Objectives Subcommittee
(CIOS) and the Technical Industrial
Committee (TIIC)—agencies au
thorized by the British and United
States chiefs of staff.
CIOS did much of the field work
in combing Germany for inform
ation on subjects ranging from
science to politics while TIIC co
ordinated plans of various U. S.
government agencies for obtaining
technical industrial intelligence to
be transmitted to CIOS.
CIOS ‘‘teanfs" had their “tar
gets" just as did the big bombing
planes, but the target of these
intelligence sleuths often was a
blueprint, a loose-talking individual
or a document buried in a tunnel
or in the bed of a river.
Once, in Cologne, a team of ex
perts was hustled to its “target”
by U. S. soldiers at night. They
pieced out secrets by candlelight,
working on strange German type
writers so that not a moment
would be wasted before this fresh
could be sent to Washington and
London for appraisal.
It was imperative that the targets
be reached before the Germans
could appreciate the situation and
move, sabotage or destroy the
SENTENCES WRONG MAN
DALLAS, Tex.—lAl—It was the
right court, the right charge was
before the judge, and the sentence
he pronounced was permissible
within the law. Everything was in
order, except . . .
The judge was passing a 99-vear
sentence on Normal Frazier Kit
terman, 24, for assault instead of
William Andrew Fraxier, who was
tried on the charge.
Kitterman thought the 99-year
term was a little steep for the
minor offence he had committed.
When he asked the judge about it,
the mistake was noticed and Kit
terman was sent back to jail, while
[Frazier got the sentence and left
for state prison.
