Ships, Planes Must Bypass Eniwetok Washington, Dec. 15 — (.'?) — The United States soon will issue a new warning to ships and airplanes to stay far away from its Eniwetok atomic weapons proving firounds. The present ''keep out'"' order was issued about a year nfjo. prior to the tests of throe atomic \veapons last sin-ing. It was worded to cover only the calendar year 1948 ami thus expires at midnight December 31. An atomic energy commission spokesman said Unit while the new jorder has not yet been dratted it undoubtedly will be prepared within the next few days. This lime, the order will be phraser! to run indefinitely. Actually, the test area is covered by two zones. The inner "restricted /.one" embraces .Eniwetok lagoon and the atoll on which a permanent weapon testing laboratory has been built. This' /one is in the center of a "danger area" encompassing about 39.000 square miles of water. It is the one to be covered by the new order. | In setting aside the inner zone, the United States did so permanently and officially informed iho United Nations of the action. Eniwetok is in the Marshall island group, about 200 miles west, and south of Bikini, where the Ifllfi "Operation Crossroads" tests of two bombs against naval vessels I were conducted. Last year's "Operation Sandstone" test were carried out in April and May. The forthcoming "danger area" warning does not ncees.surily indi- |cate that new experiments a'ro due 'immediately. Of this year's Eniwetok experiments, little has been announced other than that three weapons "of improved design" were tested and that the experimenters wrc satisfied with the results.

She flung herself downward over him. and her hair, coming unbound, fiowed over him, covering his face. The golden hair that he had loved so. made a shroud for him. Her lips sought his ear, and she tried to whisper into it, for him alone to hear. "I love you. I love you. Can't you hear me? are you? That is what you always wanted. Don't, you want it now?"
