While reading this book, I was reminded of the Belgian businessman who in the early days of World War II heard rumors about the possibility of atomic fission. He ordered a large supply of uranium from the Congo and sent it to warehouses near New York just in time for the atomic bomb project. (On Edgar Sengier, winner of the U.S. Medal of Merit and former president of the Union Miniere du Haut Katanga, see The New York Times, 7-30-63:29) I must confess that were I interested in business speculation, I should be busily stockpiling equipment needed for Mr. Ettinger’s project.
