T (UPI) — Atomic Chief John A. McCone saiiT'today the United Slates will stage ne-.v weapons tests if the Russians finally reject the West's proposal fof a one-year suspension starting Friday. . At his first news conference as chairman of ths Atomic Energy Commission, the former Los Angeles industrialists said this coun- ; try could profitably continue tcst- 1 ing to perfect small clean - H ! bombs, for tactical and defense i purposes. j Scientists feel they now how to make such weapons, McCone said, but would not be able to prove them without tests. A test suspension could "delay or prevent"' their perfection, he said. ,JIcCone made it clear that the United States will slop testing when representatives of start negotiations with Friday Russia U.S. and British officials in Geneva on a possible permanent test fan. Latest Pre-Halloween Vandalism i '-""' r J.-i•-•- - jf.^v' £ r v " i "V-'Ti'*i -«!-t- • But if the Russians refuse to go along with the U.S.-Briiish proposal for a one-year suspension, while negotiations continue, "it would not be 'long" before this country resumed weapons experiments, he said. HcCone agree:! with the statement by Secretary of State John Foster Dulles Tuesday that the Russians decided to resume testing becju?e they learned at East- West technical talks in Geneva last summer that they are far behind the United States in wuapo:;s development. The AEC chairman said U.S. " representatives at the Gene v a talks on how to police a test ban did not disclose any secrets about American weapons. But hs sai.l that U.S. scientists came away from the meeting convinced that "the other side did not have the degree of sophistication th^t our side had" in weapons development. The Russians, in tiieir discussions with Western scientists. might well have drawn-the inference that they were technically behind in the nuclear arms race, McCone said. McCone described the current Soviet test program, in which 14 devices have been 'exploded sinca Sept. 30, as "the most intensive anyone has had." But that he meant the Russians were firing off tests at the fastest rate in atomic history. McCone would not say, however, that the Soviet program has been greater in magnitude than some of the more extended U.S. tests Jiaye been. He and Atomic Commissioner Willard F. Libby agreed that while there is no evidence the Russians arc deliher.itely making "dirtier than normal" weapons— weapons with great radioactivity— tKere also is no evidence they are frying to make cleaner weapons.
