KAY A-ssoi-iati'il IM-css Military Affairs Hi'iiortur ^ WASHINGTON, -- l/I'i -- The United States may be preparing its fiflh atomic weapons proving ground, this one in a sub-Arctic wasteland. A lonely spot on the Aleutian Island chain, which stretches out SOO.mUvs from the Alaskan jnuin- iand westward toward Russia's Siberian empire, appears a probable choice. There, for the first time, the U. S. could test atomic bombs un- dt-r conditions of climate and oth- ur- factors which might be encountered should a war require use of such weapons against Russian cities. "' New .Tests Since Atomic Energy Commla-, sion Chairman Gordon Derm hinted recently that new tests might be made at locations not used lerctofore, there has lieen develop- ng speculation that the Aleutians might be one of the sites.. Reasons for this include: 1. Atomic bomb tests to dato lave been conducted only in''fa- vorable w.euUier conditions in ireas unlike those which \voulti be ogical A-bomb targets in a war with Russia. - - . : 2. The area already is owned by. the government and controlled by the military. lands Acerssihlt: 3. A n y of the A i r u t i a n islands easily reachable by sea transport which presumably would be needed to .get in the extensive and heavy cnuipmcnl needed:' 4. By coincidence, the present overall commander in Alaska is the fiirmcr -commander for nlr at the Bikini teals, Lt. Gen. William E. Kepncr. So fur, atomic bombs have liccn tested at the original Alamogordo. N.' M., site; at Bikini, at Kni- wctoK.and in the cy.nerlmrnts during late January and early February on Frenchman's Fiat, in the desert near Las Vegas, Nev.
