ATOMIC BOMB Continued iron Pat* L emphasis were needed, the necessity for that truly effective enforci- ble International control of atomic energy which this government and the large majority of the members of the United Nations support." SeariM Luta Owe Ho*r The cabinet meeting lasted more than an hour. On the point e* whether the «- plodon meana the Russians have the atomic bomb, one military man, unwilling to be quoted by name, »a!d: "If you had an explosion, you had to have something that exploded—eaJ! It a bomb, a test or whatever you want." A aomewhat similar view was expressed in Chicago by Eugene Ra- blnoqultch, editor of the bulletin of the atomic scientists. A military man in Washington said that the Russians probably are ~t the Los Alamos stage. He was referring to the date of July 18, 1949, when the tTJS. test atomic bomb was exploded in the New Mexico desert. That was three weeks prior to drawing the first atomic bomb on Japan. The impact of the news was certain to be felt around the world and to have major international political repercussions. In the recent years of the "cold war" between East »nd West, some high world figures have taken the view that American possession of the A-bomb was the major reason why the sovlets had not been even more aggressive than they have FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 194» been. Charles ROM, presidential press •eeretary, Indicated that Mr. Truman had no immediate plans for any elaboration on the bare announcement. ' Dr. Robert Oppenhelmer, chairman of the AEC'» advisory board and one of those who played a big part IP. developing the U.S. atomic bomb, told reporters: "I am very glad we know the facts." Louis L. Straus, commission member acting as chairman in the absence of David Lillenthal, said: "The President has made the statement. The matter is completely in White House hands." But there was no elaboration on the White House statement. The P'esldenfs diiclosLre eame at a llmt (hat British, Canadian and American experts are diwus- Jinj; problems of the interchange or atomic information and the sMiuiIy of uranium available to them. Uranium is the key element in making atomic bombs. The most recent official efthfmte of \vhen Russia might be ab'r to produce atomic weapons catne frr/n President Truman's Air Policy Commission. That group, headed by Thomas K. Finleller, reported on Dec. 30, 1947, "it would be safe to assume .... that possibly hostile powers will not be producing atomic weapons in substantial quantities be- for tlie end of 1952." The commission added: "We point out that this docs not assume that such powers may not have a few atomic weapons prior to that date." Last March 22 Dr. David Brad- ley, atomic medical scientist, at!4 Russia not only has the atomic bomb secret but "may already b* manufacturing atomic weapons." ABtbw Cites "Delusions* Bradley, author of the book "No Place to Hide," a report on the 1M» Bikini atomic tests,-said the belief that the United Slates has a monopoly of atomic knowledge Is on* of tlie "four fatal delusions" which leave Americans unready for a possible atomic war. Bradley ;isted the "four delusions" as: 1. "Tlie myth of the 'secret'—the Idea that we posses* and can keep Hie secret of making atomic bombe." 2. The delusion of "industrial "know-liow." "Tills is best a very temporary advantage.' Anyone who can make (an atbm(c) pile can make plu- lonium. An industrialized Russia, aided by caplured German scientists, may already be manufacturing atomic weapons." 3. The delusion'lhat-atomic weapons are absolute weapons. "They are not. They have clear limitations and obvious strategic tactical uses." 4. "The last equally absurl ctjually dangerous delusion U the current effort to play down the bomb—that atomic weapons are really of no great account."
