New Big H-Blast by U. S. Reported Shock Waves from Bikini Area Recorded in Japan TOKYO, Monday, May 28 (AP)-The United States apparently set off another hydrogen blast at Bikini this morning, the Tokyo Central Meteorological Observatory reported at 1 p. m. The observatory's 15 guages throughout Japan reported atmospheric pressure waves similar to those caused by the hydrogen bomb blast dropped from an American bomber near Bikini May 21.

The pressure waves came from the direction of Bikini, the observatory said.

Two firemen were injured when they were struck by bricks as a side and rear wall toppled with a tremendous roar.

School officials, while unable tonight to set a damage estimate, said it would cost over $500,000 to replace the building today. As a result of the fire late tonight the headmaster's house was without water supply and a dormitory for 30 boys and building housing the infirmary were without electricity.

The Tokyo observatory said atmospheric shock waves took' about hours to reach Tokyo after the May 21 blast If today's shock waves came from another Bikini explosion, the weapon was triggered about dawn at the Pacific atoll, allowing for time zone differences and travel time.

A supersensitive seismograph at the Matsuyo observatory recorded the May 21 blast as an earth shock only 12 minutes after the explosion: Earth shock waves travel much faster than atmospheric pressure waves. Tokyo observatory reported that seismographs recorded today's explosion at 3:22 a. m. the direction from which the pressure waves came, raising the speculation that Russia had set off a blast. Later the observatory said its gauges showed the source of the shock waves was in the direction of Bikini.

The shock waves lasted about 40 minutes today, the same length of time and the same strength reported after the May 21 explosion. The first shock waves were recorded in Yokohama at 6:11 a. m. (4:11 p. m.

E. S- T. Sunday). Tokyo felt the shock at 6:14. Th- United States has scheduled a series of hydrogen weapons tests during May and June at its Pacific proving grounds.

Chapin is due to die between June 1 and 9 for the September, 1954, murders of baby-sitter Lynn Ann Smith, 14, and Stephen Goldberg, her four-year-old charge. Rev. Mr. Kellett, until recently chaplain at the State Prison and a near-daily communicant with the gangling, 20-year-old killer, reaffirmed his belief that Chapin was not mentally responsible for the brutal crime.

"I have seen him steadily for the past 18 months, and I say as simply and directly as I can I have no doubt that he is a very sick young man and has been that way for many years," the Vicar told his Old North Church congregation. "I was shocked with the decision. Everyone I have talked with who are in prison work, and who have known this young man feel the same way," the former chaplain continued, CHAPIN CASE Page Five Held as Fugitive ALGTERS, May 27 (AP) -Thousands of battle- fire departments rushed dressed French troops ana special ponce swoopea aown today on Algiers' Casbah (Arab area) in an unprecedented raid for rebel suspects and arms.
