Anthony C. McAuliffe, chief of the chemical corps, disclosed this last night. McAuliffe, the hero of Bastogne, mentioned the work In ah address to the 117th annual meeting of the American Chemical Society. Of the "nerve gases" he gave no particulars. Gen. McAuliffe Introduced the subject by saying It was a "well known fact" .that German scientific experts on toxic chemical warfare were being "exploited" by Soviet Russia. ' "It must be assumed, therefore." he said, "that we are not the sole possessors of the offensive and defensive secrets of the new nerve gases. "Our research in thU field is directed towards keeping us abreast of the latest developments. We are seeking to perfect all methods and techniques for the detection, decontamination, and the protection of personnel and animals from these new gases." McAuliffe said he believed'the Unilcd States would resort to gas, jerm, or radiological warfare only retaliation against an enemy's use of it. The U. S. preparations for gas warfare in the last war "in all irobablllty deterred the enemy" rom its use ,he said. .ike Mopsy, 'Gators 'ust Grew and Grew PHILADELPHIA. April 18.

Unlike other >irds of prey, it has no claws, and herefore doesn't tear its victim apart with beak and feet. Instead t lights on a thorny tree or barbel' wire fence, and impales Its food.
