FAGf FOURTH* BLYTHEVILLB (ARK.) V COURIER FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER K>» More A-Weapons Than a Year Ago, Strauss Reveals WASHINGTON (AP) — Chairman Lewis L. Strauss of the Atomic Energy Commission says the United States has many more atomic weapons in its arsenal than it did a year ago. Strause was tight lipped yester day when reporters sought to fine. out about U.S. and Russian progress in the atomic arms race. The AEC chief told a news conference this country has "more weapons, by a wide margin, than we had a year ago" and he said the production rate is mounting rapidly. But when asked whether the United States has any new weapons, Strauss would only recall that he had said a spring series of weapons tests in the mid-Pacific "were very fruitful." A newsman asked if there had been any new Soviet atomic blasts since the United States announced detection of a Russian test about a year ago. After some thought, Strauss replied: "That is a field where I ought not to answer." He cautioned newsmen not to "draw any inferences" from, his reply. "Continuing Tests" The AEC chairman said that "in all likelihood there will be continuing tests of new weapons" at Commodity And Stock Markets— N«w York Cotton (12:30 quotations) Oct ........ 3441 3443 3438 3443 Dec ........ 3481 3483 §476 3478 Mch 3519 3520 3513 3515 May 3542 3544 3536 3538 New Orleans Cotton Oct 3445 3445 3441 3441 Dec 3434 3484 3478 3480 Mch 3524 3524 3516 3517 May 3545-3545 3537 3541 Chicago Soybeans Sept ... 304% 3081/2 303% 305 Nov ... 274% 275^ 272J/, 275 Jan ... 277% 278y 2 275% 278% Mch ... 280% 281% 278% 281% the Marshall Islands proving grounds. Other sources have reported a new test series is in the works for next spring. Strauss also said he knows of no plan to move the testing area from where a mighty hydrogen bomb was detonated last March, setting loose a radioactive cloud which drifted beyond the warning area. Some Japanese fishermen 80 miles from the blast were stricken by radiation sickness and some Marshall Islands natives also suffered, but less severely. This led to demands from some Japanese that the tests be halted or the test location moved. Strauss' news conference ranged into the field of peaceful atomic energy uses and the AEC chairman said he expects conferences to open soon on creation of an international agency along lines suggested by President Eisenhower. Strauss said, too, he hopes for an international conference of scientists on nonmilitary use of atomic energy "not long after the first of the year. Power Pact to Be Signed On other matters, Strauss said: 1. A controversial contract with a private combine, the Dixon-Yates group, to furnish power to the Tennessee Valley Authority area probably will be signed within two weeks. Eisenhower's directive to the AEC to negotiate that contract with the Dixon-Yates group kicked up a furor in the closing days of he congressional session. Demo- ;ratic National Chairman Stephen A.. Mitchell has kept the issue alive by claiming- the Dixon-Yates group •ot preferential treatment. 2. Despite reports that atomic scientists were aroused over the 's decision to bar Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer from access to •overnment atomic secrets, itrauss found the turnover of per- onnel at big AEC laboratories to ie normal and the recruiting of new scientific talent satisfactory.

Integration Upheld Segregation was ended in manj West Virginia counties soon alte. the U.S. Supreme Court held tha public school segregation is uncon stitutional. In Washington, a move to hold up racial integration in the Dis trict of Columbia's public schools was blocked by U.S. District Judg. Henry A. Schweinhaut He denies a plea- submitted by the Federa tion of Citizens' Assn., an all-white group which had called for an order restraining the registration of students for unsegregated class es. Georgia's new governor-desig nate, a protege of Gov. Herman Talmadge, declared Thursday, he will campaign for passage of the Talmadge - sponsored "private school" amendment, similar to Mississippi's measure. Lt. Gov. Marvin Griffin, nominated Wednesday in a Landslide, said he will plug for the amendment as "insurance" to help preserve school segregation.' Behind the plan is a proposal to convert public schools to "private" schools i necessary to maintain segregation. . The superintendent of Little Rock, Ark., told a group of Ne;roes Thursday that "honest studies" of integration will be corn- Dieted in 30 to 60 days. Virgil T. Blossom said he will be glad to talk to Negro leaders about the school system's plans after the studies are finished. The .ittle Rock School Board earlier had been asked by Negroes not to ollow a "wait and see" policy of integration but to go ahead and •nap plans to end segregation immediately. : lagpolc Stander Claims Record DETROIT GSB — Dixie Blandy, a 51 - year - old professional flagpole stander, slid down from his perch above the Michigan State Fair yesterday, his ankles swolen twice their regular size, and proudly announced he had broken a record.

Lfl—"They said I was dead," Harry Apperson Jones, 67, grinned, "but you can't prove it by me." Jones was recovering in Veterans Hospital today. Nine days ago he was pronounced dead, only to come to life again in a hearse en route to a mortuary. Jones blacked out in the garage of his San Gabriel home — "that's all I remember really." An inhalator squad failed to revive him and a doctor said he was dead. But when the hearse attendants saw the blanket over Jones moving, they changed their course for an emergency hospital. Oxygen pulled him through although he was in a coma for two days. ' Jones, a disabled veteran, is president-elect of the Los Angeles chapter of the Rainbow Division. He figures he'll be around for his installation now. 220,000 Doctors in U.S. CHICAGO tift—There are 220,000 physicians in the United States, a record rate of one for every 730 persons, says the American Medical Assn.

Describing the progression toward a "woman's world" in the United States. Prof. Nelson M. Foote, director of the university's Family Service Center, told the U. N .Population Coo- ference here yesterday: ' 'Diaper - changing, dishwash • ing, cooking, cleaning, laundering, shopping, all tend to become .duties shared with the wife, especially when she works outside." And he said that 27 per cent of all American wives do work away from home. "If sewing were not in severe decline generally in American homes," Foote added, "husbands might have invaded this province."
