TUESDAY, MAY 18, 1948 BLYTHJSYILLB (ARK.) OOUKlttR NKWft U.S. May Have Arms Advantage Decisive Futuristic Weapons May Be Held ir By American Forces WASHINGTON, May 18. (UP)— The combination of futuristic weapons that may determine the outcome of any new war appeared today to be within the graSp of the United States. From the cryptic words of MC- urlly-consclous officials, It looked as though American forces In the not too distant future will be able to bombard any spot onthe globe with atomic weapons. This conclusion WM based on two developements: 1. President Truman's announcement of the sucessful test of three "Improved" atomic weapons at Eni welok Atoll. 2. Practical assurance that the Navy can go ahead with Us projected construction of the world's biggest aircraft carrier, a 65.000 ton ship capable of launching atom bombers. Ailm.Louis Dent eld, chief ofnava operations, told a Congresslona committee that B-29's would be able to take off from the glantlc flat-lop. B-2S's carried the old- •jfcvpe atom bombs to Japan. ™ Dcnfeld said B-29's would not be able to return to th« super- carrier, but In a llfe-»nd-death struggle > few B-29's could b« classified as expendable. Coii-d Carry Atom Bombers For security reasons, the chief of naval .operations ducked a direct question as to whether the new carrier could be equipped with atom bombers. However, it appeared doubtful the combined chiefs of staff would endorse construction of a $125,000,000 floating airdrome unless it could make use of America's improved nuclear explosives. The president's revelation that the weapons tested at Bniwetok wer« 'improved" led to .speculation that American research had perfected a smaller atom bomb than those that ended the Japanese war. Prom a military standpoint a reduction in size of the bomb without reduction In efficiency would be on« of the greatest "Improve- mentc" possible. This might mean that planes umall-r than B-»'» will carry the atom bombs of th« future. This. In turn, would further increase the strategic value of the new carrier. ... , The" White House maintained Wait for Chance to Reach Palestine Stars May Disappear—But Not For Many Millions of Years NEW YORK.

Woman Industrialist Flays Attempt To Force Her to Collect Wage Taxes WESTPORT, Conn., May IB.(UP) —Vivien Kellems, Connecticut in : dustrlallst, said today that . she would fight the government's attempt to collect a $1,685.40 Hen on her .bank account for her refusal to collect withholding taxes from her employes. Miss Kellems made public a letter to the Westport Bank and where the world's largest tele.wop* is about to be put Into use. In an Interview, the talk turned toward Palomar and what the 200- inch mirror will record.

A deep-water atomic explosion originally scheduled to be carried out at Bikini In July, 194«, was cancelled without explanation. It was felt that whatever factors were re- sponlble for -that cancellation now have probably been overcome. Atomic Mine Seen Explosion of an atomic mine within a harbor would bring new frightfuhiesfi to wnrware. In addition to shipping damage, it presumably would saturate the surrounding countrysidi with deadly radioactive spray. Th« Eniwetok tests undoubtedly kill effect the guided missiles program, wherein one goal is development of a long-range missile with an atomic warhead. There were Indications that at least one phase of the guided missile program progress was lagging. Denfeld told a House Armed Services Subcommittee that the Navy wished to suspend construction of two .warships -the Kentucky and the Hawaii — which are to be guided missile bombardment ships. He indicated that the Navy felt further experimentation was essential before construction of such ships could proceed. . This experi- ^|,mcntation_ he said, "U continuing fW*s rapidly HS possible."
