The experts composing the joint chiefs of staff board snid that because the first test was an air burst, little Information was obtained on how the bomb would affect hulls of the naval vessels. A shallow underwater atom bomb test is scheduled for July 25 nt Bikini, and a deep-water test explosion is planned later. Damage to hulls will be studied specifically after the second Icsl. The board said it was clear from the first test that "only by further large-scale research .ind development can the United States retain its present position of scientific leadership."

Lewis H. Brereton, Rear Adm. W, R. Pur- ncll and Rear Adm. R. A.

The preliminary report snld no significant, unexpected phenomein occurred, no large water-wave formed, the radioactive residue dissipated as expected and no da occurred on Bikini Island, abou three miles from the center of thi explosion. The board satisfied will the scientific data result In g fron the test, saying this Informally would prove invaluable in soientlfl and engineering fields.
