TUKSDAY, MARCH li), 1<MU BLYTIIEVILLU (AUK.) COURIER NEWS Blast Pictures Will Be Taken Atomic Bomb Test Will Be Most Photographed Event In AH History ROSWELL. N. M.. Mar. 19. (UP) ^;The clicking shutters or more Aluui 300 cameras will make the ^ntoinlc explosion of "Operation Crossroads" next Muy the most photographed even In history, it, wns disclosed Monday. Lt. Col. Richard S. Leghorn, deputy commandei- of the Army Photo group for the operation, sold that, with the completion of thc dress rehearsal of thc operation off thc coast of southern California last Friday, lie wns prepared to picture the event from every conceivable angle. The cemcras will be mounted on airplanes, mounted on one of Ihe 97 ship targets for the explosion, and mounted on the islands of Bikini Lagoon. •Some of the cameras used will take pictures at the speed of 2.000 pictures a second, others will take detailed pictures through 30 and 48 incli lenses. "There's no chance we'll miss thc split second hlast." Leghorn said "A special tone will be sent' out its run. When the bombardier lets go. the tone will stop and our automatic timing instruments will take over on every camera." "Heavy filters will be used on all cameras." he said. "Thc explosion will be so intense it would blind an observer even if he wore dark glasses. Our pictures will be amonf; th e most Important in history; because visual observation ot thc blast will be almost impossible . nnd memories would be unable to ^[^tain the complete picture." Brig. Gen. Roger R-amcy. commanding general of the air force section for the operation, said still and motion pictures of the explosion that give away none of thc technical secrets will be released to tile public as soon as possible after [he explosion. Pome cameras will take infrared and ultra-violet pictures of the blnst. Every picture will lie limed automatically at 1-10.000 of a second as it is taken so scientists can follow Hie exact pattern of the atomic blast In thfir later studies John L. Lewis Orates While Mine Owners Sit In Silence BY IUKDKKICK C. OTHMAN ' United Press Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON. Mar. 19. (UP) — It takes no robin, nor any flow- eihn; forsytlila bush, to tell you spring has come to Washington; (lie one sure sign is the oratory and thc smoke rolling .toward the yellow celling of the Sliorclmm hotel's grand ballroom. I'm noi talking about bituminous smoke; 1 mean the lumen from the cigars of the men who mine the coal and of those who own the mines. They are In the ballroom now, us they have been during every spring time 1 can remember In Washington, calling each other names, milking (limits, and getting ready for thc annual strike in the nation's coal mines. If this year's strike Is averted, old-timers at the press table, where the cloth Is white linen and thc ash trays are crystal, claim it. will be a miracle. Personally, I wouldn't know. What amazes me is hoiv the opponents restrain themselves from poking each other in the nose. Let us consider the final open session, before the boys actually got down to business In the secret meetings, which will decide how far America's reconversion will go this year. Morning long John L. Workers, teetered precariously on one of those spindly-legged hotel chairs while a succession of mine owners accused of exaggerating, of not telling the truth about the mines' safety records John L., of the shaggy eyebrows, the impressive baywindow, and the oratorical virtuosity, puffed his ci- ;ar. hooked his thumbs in the arm holes of liis gray vest, and said nothing. The mine owners' spccch- were wooden, delivered from "Caesar." he said, "we who arc about to die, salute you." He asked the operators what they mended to do nbout mine safely. They stared al him. "You condone these conditions by your silence," he snld finally nflcr n minute which seemed like ten. "And we protest." John L. stalked out of (lie room soon thereafter. His fresh cigar trailed acrid fumes behind him. PAGE nVB RBI) KYDKlt BY FRED IIARMAN Osceola Society—Personal Miss Valeria Danchowcr of Maburff, 1,3., is guest of Mr. and Mr.s. Chester C. IXinehowcr.
