Hel"lJ state our High Altitude Test Reported as Being in 40-Megaton Range UPPSALA, Sweden (MrThe Soviet Union exploded a big nuclear bomb high in the atmosphere Sunday. Swedish scientists estimated it to be in the 40-mcgaton range, second only to the Soviet 50-megaton bomb set off last Oct. 30. A Norwegian scientist Said his instruments showed only that it was smaller than that one and U.S. officials would say only that it was "in the megaton range." The Japanese Meterologi-' cal Agency estimated the' blast lo be in the 20-megaton range. Whatever the size, the blast carried out Premier Khrushchev's threat to resume testing in retaliation for U.S. Pacific tests.

Recordings at the institute indicated the test .was carried out at the Soviet atomic testing ground on the island of Novaya Zcmlya, in Siberia 1,350 miles east of Uppsala. In Washington, the blate new Soviet testing "is regrettable for world peace."
