Despite the scientific arguments ,n favor of continuing tests, Eisen- dower told his news conference that U.S. proposals to suspend nuclear tests as part of a first-step disarmament agreement still stand. j As of now, the President said the world's fears require the U.S. ,o go right ahead with' a conditional offer to suspend tests. This government, he declared, has no intention of withdrawing its proposal to suspend nuclear tests. The president at the same time spoke out anew against a war in the nuclear age. He said there can be no such thing as a victorious power in a global war of the future. The President said scientist Ernest 0. Lawrence and Edward Teller have told him they are producing bombs with 96 per cent less fallout than that of the so-called "dirty" H-bomb of 1954. Eisenhower said the scientists ask for four or five years to test each stage of development, and they will produce an absolutely clean bomb, the President said. This would mean, he added, that there would be no radioactive fallout to injure civilians outside the heat and blast area around a mili- ,ry target. The President^ remarks made it clear that there is no such thing now as an absolutely clean H-bomb. The Atomic Energy Commission's top test official. Dr. A1-] vin C. Graves of the Los Alamos, N.M., bomb laboratory, told a congressional subcommittee recently that the absolutely clean H-bomb is impossible because it still requires an A-bomb trigger— and A-bombs are inherently dirty. If scientists should perfect a way of triggering H-bombs without atomic heat, they presumably would be closer to solving the problem of how to tame the H-bomb's nuclear reaction for peaceful power. Officials have said repeatedly that no such break-through is in sight. A reporter asked the President what possibility there is that Russia might make a so-called "clean bortb." Eisenhower said this js an excellent question which ho a.sks himself. He expressed hope that the Russians would learn how to make clean bombs and know how to use them. Then, he said, these weapons would be used for specific purposes and not for mass destruction. CARRIERS ENJOY LIFE AT LIGHTNING DUDE RANCH Ernest Weir Dies at 81 PITTSBURGH (UP) — Ernest T. Weir, 81, who resigned six weeks ago as board chairman and chief executive officer of National Steel | Corp., died in a Philadelphia hospital today, it was announced here. A spokesman for National Steel said Weir died of "complications following a heart attack, suffered in mid-January." • Weir, who would have been 82 next Aug. 1, was elected "honorary-founder chairman" by National Steel directors in May. On his recommendation the directors named the company president, Thomas E. Millsop, the chief executive officer but postponed the election of ' a board chairman. Weir had told the directors he would recommend the election of an "outstanding mar." as chairman and 'it is generally believed his choice was Secretary of the Treasury George M. Humphrey, who has announced his intention to resign from President Eisenhower's cabinet.
