Compton (Nobel Prize for Physics, 1927), gives two separate speeces. In the first, expresses his hope that the University of Chicago finds a place for its students and faculty to play squash. He discusses the project's importance in terms of winning World War II. He goes on to discuss the possibility of peaceful uses for atomic power.
