FRIDAY, 'AUGUST 10, 1951 BLYTHZVTLLE, (ARK.) COURIER HEWS AEC to Start New Series Of A-Blasts in Nevada LA» VBOA8, Nev., Aug. 10 (ffl— I Th» Atomic Energy Commission • will iUrt a new series of small explosions Aug. 15 at the Indian Springs testing ground. PurpoM of the explosions, the •onunlMion said yesterday, is to "obtain detailed data for anticipating atmospheric conditions during jtent operations arid to study the Joffect of temperature inversion and Cupper wiivdi on blast waves." Th«' commission announcement did not Mr the blast would be of itomlo origin. It referred only to "small amount* of high explosives." Last February, a great cloud of jtellow smoke formed over the test- Ing ground after the blasts. The cloud was caused by temperature inversion, an atmospheric condition that kept the cloud from rising and drifting away. The purpose of the new tests, apparently, will be to find a way to avoid setting off major blasts on days when temperature inversion can be expected The commission will record the blasts at seven locations as far as !00 miles in Utah and Nevada, using highly sensitive instruments in St. George. Utah, and Las Vegas, Tonopah, Realty, Imllaii Sj>rfngs. Boulder City and Calientc, Nev. , Residents of these towns probably won't hear or see the explosions, but travellers on highways near the site may see smoke clouds and hear the blasts, said Ihe commission. The tests will last several months. Jack Benny Reports Morale Is High for Yanks in Korea HOLLYWOOD, AU g, 10. W) — "The morale of our men in Korea bs terrific," -reports Jack Benny, returned this week from entortain- Ing troops in the front lines. "They know what they're fighting for," added the ficlrtle-hacking comedian. "Naturally, they want ppace. But they watit the rif,nl kind of peace, and they're \viiling to continue fighting until they get it. "The one thing that nearly every one of them asks is: 'Do the people back home kiio*- there's a \var on?' I told them, 'You're darned right they do.'" In hit> six \veek-s ahsnnce from Bollywood, Benny figures he trav- ^fced between 25,000 nnd 30,000 miies with his entertainment troupe. They . played before troops and Bounded veterans in Hawaii, Japan, Okinawa and throughout Korea. It was a thorough. Job. Virtually every possible audience of U.S. soldiers In the Orient was reached, with one exception. Thnt was a group at Pu.san who could not be reached because of bad landing conditions for aircraft. "It was the roughest lour I ever made," said Benny, who made five worlci-wide journeys to entertain troops in World War II. "But also it- was the most satisfying. I think we did the best Job possible. Not only did we reach every aud ience we could, but \ve Rave all the time possible EG the other things thn' are important— posing for pictures with the G.I.'B. .signing autographs talking and eating with the boys "The fnod wjis pood wherever we went. But the living and traveli: conditions were toucher than anywhere I had been, including North Africa. Much of the time I was living in a dirt-floor tent close to the front- Jjnes. "We had to use 'ivery kind o transportation, from light aircraf to helicopter to Jeep. The reason i because Korea Is so mountainou? The boys have a gag over ther that if Korea were flattened out, 1 would be as big an Tcxa.-?." U.S. Polish Office Closed WAPSAW. Poland, Aug. 10.

(JP)— Eluding tightened police controls, additional tens of thousands of iron curtain youths deserted the Communist world youth peace festival today to visit free West Berlin.

Shortages of supplier and housing for the two-week show requires that the delegates b» brought In shifts /or visits of about five days each. West Berlin authorities, who havt the task of interviewing and entertaining the visiting youngsteri, reported that about 700 had Inquired about asylum In the weat since the festival opened last Sunday. Only n small fraction are ao- ecpted lor trus, however. Because of the already heavy financial burden of the refugee load, only those are taken who prov« they can't safely return home. The others are given a quick indoctrination of anti-Communism and advised to go home but hold fast to the faith even under the pressure of Communist rule.
