"We are being hurried forward from one discovery to another," he said. The "death dusl" bomb Is a fearsome device—which scientists say is theorelically possibly—In which the tremendous explosion of a hydrogen bomb would also be used for this purpose: Converting a material wrapped around the bomb ilsclf into a radioactive poison that would then be carried by the wind over an extensive area of the bombed country. Ordinary cobalt has been mentioned as,a possibility for such a wrapper material. Truman made no reference to such a weapon in his message. But his words about the H-bomb leave ground for speculation that scientists may even now be thinking of bizarre variations of the awesome weapon. The poison <Hist from a hydro- ven-cobalt bomb would be deadly to men if they inhaled or swallowed enough of it. And, many among the living might suffer genetic effects, possibly affecting their ability to reproduce, or re- sulgiiigr in defective offspring.

Political, observers said the arniy plan faces nt least further delay nnd probable French demands that clauses he added to meet' Gautlist objections (hat the pact fails to respect the. honor and unity of the French Army. The treaty, hammered out in months of negotiations, is designed to place troops of the same six nations, now discussing -unification at Strasbourg, under a unified command. So far, none of the six have unified the pact but West Germany's Bundestag is expected to reach n finnl vote this month. In Bonn, however, West German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer said in a radio speech he agreed with Mayer that new talks were necessary to clarify and amplify certain pans of the army treaty and the West German Peace Contract because "many developments have taken place" since the pacts weue signed last May. Parliamentary observers here In Paris said there appeared lo be nn almost general desire among deputies in the National Assembly to delay ratification of the army Most French- happy about ! the idea of rearming the Germans, i their traditional enemies.

But it has no business scheduled then other Ihnn to receive President Truman's budget message.

This charge will compensate lenders— banks, Insurance companies and the like—for their work in servicing small loans. Greene said It costs roughly three times as much lo service three 34,000 loans as it would lo service one S12.000'loan.

Loans affected by the new rate cannot exceed S4.750 or 95 per cent of the purchase price of Ihe home, whichever is smaller.
