May. 1939, stating that any war "Hist be regarded ns lost from the outset, because Turkey hart joined the coalition of Germany's poten- tiHK enemies, making th c British position in the middle east unassailable.

H c said thai the order issued to him in 1933 to form a government under Hit- Ice was oii President Paul Von Hiu- dcnbcrg's initiative. Papen asked 14 deteiis e witnesses including Admiral Nicholas Horthy, former Regent of Hungary. He ask- erl permission to request an affidavit from King Gustnv ol Swede,, to show that Papen opposed German aggression. Von Papen, Hitler's former diplomatic "trouble-shooter," said he need the affidavit lo confirm that In 1934 he asked Gustav, 87-year king who has ruled Sweden since 1907, to warn Hitler of the dangers of an anti-Jewish policy.

(UP)— A single atomic bomb as destructive as 1.000.000 ten-ton blockbusters is now possible, according tn Dr. Edward u. Condon, director of the National Bureau of Standards. This would be 1.000 times more powerful than th c bombs used against Japan and to be used in the forthcoming Navy lests. And it also is possible, Condon believes, that other nations some day may turn out atom bombs bigger and better than ours. For these reasons, Condon told the science talent .institute last- night, this country .should work to avert an atomic armaments race. Specifically,- it should welcome Russians scientists "to our'labora- tories as they have welcomed ours lo..-theirs,,.j..nd.,exleud?the base of scientific 'cooperation with this great people." Condon .called for cmanclpalion of science from military control, for dissipation of international distrust, and for "A iinilcd mankind using its intelligence cooperatively for the good of all." The alternative to such cooperation, he said, "is destructiveuess thousands of times greater than ever, before:" Asserting that thc missiles used on Hiroshima and Nagasaki were "old-fashioned, one hoss shay bombs," Condon added: "Bombs 1,000 times more powerful than those already used arc capable of being made in lhe near future." Atomic Power Raises Specter Of 'One-Minute' Wtir In Future CHICAGO, Mar. 7. (UP)—On i two kilociaim Aug. 0. IMS. a single bomb, drop . KllORinms on the Japanese city of Hiroshima, and reported to explode at a height of 1.000-1,500 feet, totally demolished some fpur or more square miles or that city. Structures 10 miles from the center of lhc blast were reported leveled. Sixty thousand persons were killed outright or In consequence of the explosion, 150,000 more were casualties. Thus wire the "atom bomb," which official reports claim lo carry the power of some 20,00 loivs of TNT. Introduced to * dssed world. A single bomb .accomplished the work of 2.000 Superfortresses. c«r- rying 10 tons of bombs each! A .second bomb, dropped a few days later. under similar circumstances, at Nagasaki, was reported to b e » n "Improved" model. already making lhe first bomb used obso- lele. Even though the terram was less farovuble than at Hiroshima, the damage was . more severe. 10-Ton Bomb foretMt Wllh the dust hardiv aettted on Hiroshima slid NnqaKaVi, Prof. Oll- phimt of England, who shared in the development . of the . atomic bomb, predicted that -10-ton bombs were a practical . possibility the equivalent of 10,000,000 Ions of TNT ill a single 10-ton parcel of destruction, phant, according to Dr Oll- CAMP GRANT. III. (U.P.)—May- bo most soldiers begrudge an extra day spent in uniform, but Col. Enrl G. Gcbhardt, camp dental surgeon, disclosed that five per cent of the men passing through Camp Grant for discharge chose to remain a few extra days or weeks to complete dental work before returning to civil life. We have said that thc effects of the first atom bomb were like those of a 2,000-plan e Superfort raid. This is probably, an underestimation of the damage done, because in the absence of direct hits, thc usual sort of TNT bomb may do astonishingly little damage, wit the atom bomb, it may be expecte that a radius of five to 10 miles o effective damage may be achieved within a minimum radius of two t three miles, destruction will be ab salute. It li clear, therefore, tha a single projectile may serve th purpose of .a raid:by thousands o planes, and perhaps even more sue cesslully. Tills changes the natur Of warfare immeasurably. At t the close 'of the Europea phase of this past world war. th Germans po-««ssed a rocket-bomb the V-2; which was used at a rang of over 200 miles. It carried a one ton warhead. The unused. "V-4 rocket, or rockets of our own, o which we have been told, bu which have not seen action, woul have ranges of 1,000 and pcrhapt, several thousand miles. It Is thu clear that through such rockets, o thron^h robotrcontrolled airplanes or television-controlled missiles o planes, attacks can be made'With atomic explosive from such dis lances that the s(te of origin need not be known. Furthermore, such missiles as stratosphere rocket- caiinol be detected much before their impact, so that none of thc normal detection methods nor those radar mechanisms developed during thc war would be useful.
