The AEC declared that "new bench-marks of accomplishment" have been set in Hie long-range Program for peacetime development of the atom's power. Jn a semi-annual report lo Con- Sie.'s, the commission made no reference to any plans to develop a super-bomb employing hydrogen. It did disclose that it was doing a lot of work on studying how three different forms of hydrogen can be used lo produce alomic energy on a lalwratory scale. President Truman has said that it's up to him to decide whether "'is nation should try to develop a hydrogen bomb—unofficially esti mated to have destructive potentialities far beyond those of uranium >r plutnomium bombs, Tile AEC's references to experiments with hydrogen would seem to f inply that if President Truman gvc.s the go-ahead signal U>- his /aomic team, Ihe scientists have ^ue of the plays worked out on tls blackboard and are ready to aply them towards seeing if they cal develop a practical weapon.
