MONDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 1966 THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON. ILLINOIS / t Ask Russia For Bomb Test Explanation By TlIK ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON (AP) — The Stale Department hus asked the Soviet Union to furnisli information about its Oct. 27 underground nuclear explosion at the arctic island of Novaya Zemlya. State Department press officer Robert J. McCloskoy said Friday Jolin M. Leedy, assistant secretary of state for European affairs, had called in Soviet Ambassador Anatoly F, Dobrynin and requested the information. Some ohsorvors said the move was a low-key dii)lomatic reminder that the test-ban treaty forbids atomic fallout that spreads across national boundaries. Apparently some radioactive material sprayed out far enough to be detected by U.S. devices. U.S. minitors recorded the last e.xplosion at around a million tons of TNT equivalent, which would make it the largest undergi'ound explosion ever reported.

Chicago Police Raid Find Youth Gang's Guns In Church CHICAGO (AP)' — Police and officials of a South Side church are hurling accusations at one another following confiscation of B weapons cache in the church basement. Some 40 weapons, including rifles, revolvers, swords, knives, axes, a shotgun, a bow with arrows and a deactivated hand grenade, were seized Thursday when polwe raided the Fkst Presbyterian Church with a search warrant. The weapons were taken from a wall safe in the church, which offers quarters to the Blackstone Rangers, a Negro gang which has allegedly been involved in a recent wave of shootings. The Rev. John R. Fry, pastor of the church, said at a news conference Friday that church officials "are considering legal action" and that the raid may have been politically motivated. He said gang members surrendered the weapons voluntarily to church workers. He said police. Treasury Department officials and Mayor's Youth Commission officials were present July 4 when the weapons were inventoried and locked in the safe. Sgt. Vernon Williams, who led the raid of 31 policemen and obtained the warrant, said he was unaware of any police agreement to allow stores of arms in the church. The Rev. Mr. Fry said Rangers members were working in the city's 5th Ward to get out the vote for the February aldermanic election as "one legitimate way they can enter society." He said they plan to nominate a candidate from their E^ast Woodlawn neighhiorhood. The church's associate pastor, the Rev. Harold Walker, said police raiders damaged the Church. Sgt.
