(tP> — The Arkansas Supreme Court may disqualify Itself In the cash funds suit. This possibility waj suggested informally yesterday by Chief Justice Griffin Smith when It received a motion to advance the case (or an "rjy hearing it a matter of public Interest. It was taken under consideration. The high court reconvened yes- lerday after Its summer recess, with > new justice, Robert A. Ledar. .Biting on the bench for the first pine. He was appointed to succeed the late Justice R. \v. Robins. The cash fu-cis suit, brought by State Rep. James A. Glpson of Saline County, attacks constitutionality of expenditure of cash funds- money derived from oUier-flian legislative appropriations. Thirty-four state institutions are Involved.

E. Lapp, an atomic scientist believes that if Russia has sufficient uranium she can accumulate about 100 atomic bombs within'the next two years. But. Dr. Lapp also says he's positive the Reds can not make bombs any faster than we can. In 1945, Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer, one of this nation's top A-bomb scientists,. indicated in testimony before a Senate committee that the United Stales could produce 1,000 bombs in two years in an all-out effort. Formerly executive director of an atomic energy committee in the national military establishment, Lapp said he believes Russia definitely has the bomb, but he added "The actual time when Russia has the first bomb is not as Important as many people think, it Is the time when Russia will have the bomb in quantity and can deliver It, That's the really Important thins;. I think that the tinie that's really critical is not now but would be on the order of two years from now." He made the statements in a copyrighted interview with U. S. News and World Report, an "independent weekly news magazine published in Washington.** : Asked for an estimate of what Russia's stockpile might be by 1052, he said: "We can hardly get quantitative on this because, after all, we are talking about something that the Russians know and we don't—that is, the amout of fissionable material that they can produce. 'It would seem to me reasonable to assume that, if the Russians have one bomb today, within a period of two years if they had the uranium—fch ey could accumulate on the order of 100."
