George C Marshall tried at the last minute to convince former President Har ry Truman that Japan should be warned before the first atomic bomb was dropped on the country, it was disclosed Sunday. The group of 156 scientists was led by Leo Szilard, a brilhant Hungarian physicist, who helped supervise the nation's first controlled atomic chain reaction. The disclosure appears this week in the current issue of Look Magazine. (Truman, reached in Independence, Mo., refused to comment on the article.) The magazine said government files showed the petitions never got to Truman, who at the time was en route home from the Potsdam Conference with the British and the Russians. "President Truman, faced with one of the great moral decisions of human history, was denied access to the petitions of many American nuclear scientists who opposed the dropping of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima without warning," the article said..

Other action included the dispatch of a huge "task force" of demonstrators to win what was described as the fight for equality and to assist the Cairo branch in its campaign to defeat an upcoming school bond referendum to protest against what the NAACP calls de facto segregation in the city's schools. City Accused Dr. Lucicn H. Holman of Joliet, president of the state NAACP, accused Cairo officials of not acting in good faith.
