Proposed amendments, as announced by the Policy Committee icslerday, figured lo a bid to put back into the pending appropriation bill about 323 million dollars :ut out by the House Appropriations Committee. But Martin used the figure 350 million. When asked about that, he said he was speaking in rounc numbers. Martin talked with newsmen at ;he White House.

The 10 kiloton device flared an unearthly light over the test center. A tremendous mushroom cloud erupted into the predawn sky.
