Negro Preacher's Flock Should Do As He Tells, But Not As He Does MEMPHIS, Tcnn. (/PI — The heavy hand of the law tapped the Rev. Tom Sidney Wilson as he mounted his inilplt to preach Sunday. A member of the congregation at ttie Mt. Slnat Negro Baptist Church, Ed Glenn, thought he rec- ognised the shoes, flhlrt and (stickpin the reverend was wearing.

The assumption Is that at least some target, ships will be used In the test, although Instruments that record shock, pressure, radiation and other p/Tecls could provide valuable data alone. Without tapping us reserve lieet of modem, useful vessels, the Navy has on hand a large numl>er of combatant sh!|>s, transporUs and smaller craft., mnny of which could be used in Ihe experiment. Left over from the 1MB liiklni tests are several battleships .and cruisers, almost a down destroyers, a half dozen submarines and a variety of transports. The "Baker" lest in Bikini lagoon produced formidable results: two battleships, a big carrier, three submarines and some smalt crnft were sunk In that single blast of one weapon. But selentsHs atia military leaders believe a great deal of the destructive force of the bomb was lost because of the shallow depth of the lagoon—about 180 feet fit the deepest point. A great deal of the bomb's power wns expended in the spectacular (although tactically useless) column of water thrown up by the blfisl. Scientists believe a deep tinder- water shot might produce far greater damage over a much wider area. This is because Hie full blasting power of the Bomb would l» held within the writer an dthe shock transmitted to Ihe hulls of ships. An inkling of what, underwater shock could do was had at Bikini. Some ships which escaped nctlliil sinking were seriously damaged in- lernally. Engines were wrecked, bulkheads nnd equipment lorn loose and thrown violently about.
