X. .(*)— You do have E chance against the atomic bomb. ilaj. Albert J. Bluer, of the U. s. Army surgeon general's office, i»yi tt'i » much belter chanct th*n most people think. If you »r* four mll«» or more from the center of an atomic expio- ilon, your ch«nc«< ot •scaping without injury arc almost perfect, the rfftc«r report*. From th«r« on toward the center your chance* drop off aharply. From t half mile out to a mile and a half from the atomic blast it ]»• about 60-80 you will come out alive. At dittance le«« than a half mile there ti no hope. "In tht are* within one-half mile raaiut from the center ot th* blast 4i there will be almost complete de- "ilruetlsn, Bauer »ayi. "Fatalities will run very close to 100 per cent. Ma). Bauer presented hU report before the 12th International Con- »resa of Military Medicine mid Pharmacy meeting here. It Is based on the atomic explosions »t Hiro- ihima, Nagasaki and Bikini. Poxible Vm for Bomb. Cited The report say« the atom bomb probably will be used against industrial and communications centers and civilian populations far behind military line*. The Bauer report tries to get rlt of some fear of the unknown, th "atomic neurosis," produced by de relopment and use of the atom! bomb. "Trie mass of the public as we as the military must be made t realize that an atomic explosion I not the end for all concerned. There are definite limits to the radiation and blast elfect. A compromise between genuine healthy respect for the power of the bomb and yet Uck ot unreasoning fear of the unknown, must be effected." Besides the blast effects common to other explosives there are two others: Flash burns from the longer wave length rays released by the explosion, and radiation illness from the shorter rays. The above-ground explosion Is the worst In blast and radiation. v Results In Japan showed the bomb, exploded over a city of 250,000, produced 100.000 casualties. M H'l« of these died. The • report <jf blames the high death rate on the downtown location of hospitals. At Hiroshima, the report says, nine- tenths of the doctors and nurses were bomb casualties. Ciiiea Should Provide Defenses The report further points out that of all deaths, only 15 in 100 came from the mysterious and much feared radiation sickness. The great majority were from causes common to any other bombardment, burns, fractures, contusions and lacerations. Radiation sickness is described as characterized by nausea and vomiting, fever, diarrhea, shock, bleeding tendencies, sterility, and loss SHOEMAKER WANTED— Photographs taken at the opening of Philadelphia's Community Chest drive—with a loud-speaker "message" by William Penn, atop City Hall—revealed that the founder of the Commonwealth has a poorly shod right foot (see inset).
