PAGE M1W More War Bomb Dangers Claimed ^ jv •• ft ~ Cii iggs Fall 100 Feet—Bounce Unbroken Army Sees New Cause For Atom Worries; Navy Less Perturbed 11Y JLEE NICHOLS : (United 1'rvss Staff Correspondent) WASHINGTON, April 11. (UP) — MOW and deadly atomic weapon it could spread' rndioacllvc particles over vast areas without MI explosion is a possibility in future wars, the War Department said yesterday in a syeclal report. The Army said the new wcapoi could ijc made in secret as a l>: product of atomic energy plants, devoted in all appearances to peaceful purposes. The report said that even tin mosot rigid international atomi' controls would yuarantce this conn try no more than six vears of safe ty Irom atomic nssauft. The Army study of dcfeiiK against atomic attack, together will one toy the Navy, went lo the leg islnlivc reference section of til library of congress. They were accompanied with a analysis by Hcrnard Brmlie, Ya University professor and atotni consultant .who questioned tl need for a <>ig navy ami army and Pacific bases in future conflicts. ! Brodie believes atomic bombs make the large armies and navies of World War II r.bout a s antiquated as the feow and arrow. His viows, expressed earlier in a boqk, "The" Abolutc Weapon," have resulted In heated controversies witli- in the armed services. The summary of Army thinking, contained these statements: '1. America needs allies; it cannot stand alone ill the world today. 2. Initial strategy in the event • of atomic attack i s to absorb or divert the first attacks, deliver immediate counterattacks with long range tombers or missiles, and mo- uiliz? resources .six?pdily. . 3. The end of an atomic war may find both victor and vanquished in a stais cC almost complete ruin. The army document foresees the possibility of atomic attack by other nations in eight to 15 year without internalJonal controls. ' The Navy report does not fore- sec any radicially new mode war inside of 15 years. It says such a war come's the fleet wll depend mostly on its mobility to cscai« serious harm. The Navy says with proper design changes, fighter plane and anti-aircraft .protection, it can keep atom bomb damage to ships to a minimum.
