But 18 other Japanese sailors and soldiers, with a single machine- gun, remain on the island 61 miles north of Saipan. Navy headquarters here said today Junji Inoue, 43, an engineer in the Imperial Navy, was taken off Anatahan a week ago. More than 200 letters from wives, mothers and relatives of the remaining Japanese were left there, urging the men to believe war \^ith the U. S. had ended and return home. Inoue received such letters a year ago and had been waiting to be picked up since. Inoue said he and the 18 others were the only survivors of 33 marooned on Anatahan June 12, 1944, when American dive bombers sank three 30-ton cargo ships in the Island's harbor. Eight of the original group were murdered, Inoue said, and the others died accidental deaths. He added that the group now is dominated by Seaman Nakagawa Ichiro, who threatens to kill anyone attempting to leave. Inoue stepped out of the brush to be picked up by the Trust Territory tug Venus, commanded by Lt. Conidr. James B. Johnson of Birmingham, Ala. He wore a nylon shirt and pants fashioned from parachutes salvaked from a B-29 crash in 1944. Salvage from the bomber provided the men with most of the implements needed to survive on the island. They are lizards, cocoanuts, crabs, mangoes and bananas, Inoue said. Record Tax Hike Bill Is Ready By AiiMiaM Prttt WASHINGTON, June 16. — A bill designed to increase the government's tax reveune by $7,233,000,000 a year is tentatively scheduled for action in the House next Wednesday. Approved yesterday 19 to six by the House Ways and Means Committee, the bill is described by a committee e.xpert as possibly the largest single revenue measure in U. S. history. Tax collections are running at an estimated rate of $50,000,000,000 to $60,000,000,000 a year, far higher than the previous record year of 1945. But e.\penses during the year starting July 1 may top $70,000,000,000. If approved by the House, Senate and President Truman—\vho has asked Congress for even more taxes—the bill would be the third major tax increase since the Korean War started a year ago.

Says Atom Bomb ^ Now Is Obsolete By A»ecit«*d Pran NEW ORLEANS, June 16.— A top scientist of the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) was quoted today as saying the atomic bomb is obsolete. How literally that was or what relation it might have to efforts of the U. S. to create a hydrogen bomb was not clear. * Rep. F .Edward Hebert (D-La.) mentioned the matter today in the third of a series of articles on tl.f Eniwetok tests written for the New Orleans States. The States made them available to the Associated Press. The scientist was Dr. Edward Teller, physicist of the AEC's Los Alamos. N. M., bomb, laboratory and one of the men who helped develop the first atomic bomb. Hebert was telling of a chat among several officials and himself while he was at Eni­ wetok for atomic tests in April and May. Hebert said he had remarked that the New Orleans Airport, when built in 1933 was the most modem in the United States but now is obsolete. Thereupon, Hebert related, Dr. Teller commentr ed: "That's nothing. In 1934 nobody had ever heard of the atom bomb and today'it is obsolete." Cloud To Circle World Hebert, in the first of his series on Thursday, made an oblique reference to what happened to be a phase of the atomic bomb test concerned with the hydrogen bomb research program. He was describing the cloud which formed after the explosion he witnessed. He wrote: "That could would go around the w^orld several times before it dissipated." In it were many of the secrets of this thermonuclear experiment. In the multitudinous highly sensitive instruments placed on the surrounding islands were many other secrets. The joint AEC-Defense Department announcement on the Eni­ wetok tests, made at a news conference in Washington on Wednesday, said that "new information and understanding of the basic phenomena" underlying the theory of a hydrogen bomb had been obtained in the tests.
