PAGE TWO Nevada Atom Tests May Affect Battle, Bombing Strategy By ELTON C. FAT WASHINGTON (AP) —.Military KientlsU expect the recent experimental underground atomic explosion In Nevada to have far-reaching effect on both battlefield tac ties and strategic bombing. The research Information obtained Jn the test explosion on Nov. 29 »t "the Frenchman Flats proving ground.presumably will be used for development of a dual purpose nuclear weapon for use In blasting out iubl*rran«xn strongholds on a war front or destroying underground factories or military headquarters In an enemy homeland. Tw« Method! Obvious The armed forces already have let it be known there are at least two methods for delivering such an earthquake - producing wenpon: through use of an atomic warhead either, on a conventional deep'pen- etration bomb dropped from high altitude by a plane or a guided missile, fired In high trajectory to produce deep penetration of the earth as It drops groundwnrd almost vertically. TNT Gave an Idea From preliminary tests conducted at a Utah proving ground In which standard TNT explosives were used in large quantity, the military already had some Idea of results to expect from the Nevada atomic test, Thus the weaponeers had reasons to believe, even be/ore they detonated the atomic charge in Nevada, that several militarily useful features would he produced. Crater Is Subject Among them was the area of primary blast destruction, the crater caused by the explosion; crncxs In the earth which, radiating out from the crater, would damage or destroy underground or surface structures not nctualfy at the point of Impact; shock transmitted through the earth to destroy or damage structures, equipment within structures, or both, How "Mot" Is If? But another fatcor could not be determined with certainty until an actual atomic explosion was tester! How much residua! radlo-nctlvity wnuld be produced by setting off a nuclear fission detonation underground and ho\v long would this poison persist In the debris of the crater This could be an advantage In the bombing of nn underground factory, denying the area or its equipment to enemy use for some time. But It could be a dlsadvnntaRe in n battlefield, where friendly forces might want to move Into the area quickly. Doctors to Examine Agent Lang In Bennett Triangle Shooting BEVERLY HTLLS, Calif.
