PAOBTW1LVB BLYTHEVILU: (ARK.) COURIER NEWS TlfVBSDAY APIHL 1, Plan to Increase Trade with Russia Brings Opposition • WASHINGTON (AP) — An administration-approved move to expand the Western world's trade with Russia in Bon-war items bumped into some sharp opposition in Congress today. Sen. H. Alexander Smith (R-NJ), *-• : a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, voiced criticism of any stepup in shipments to the Soviets and their satellites of what foreign aid director Harold Stassen described as "peaceful goods." Stassen said on his return yesterday from a London conference with top British and French officials he anticipates, "compatible with security requirements, an expanded trade with the Soviet Union and with Eastern Europe states in the export to them of peaceful goods in exchange for'items and materials which the free world can UBC." Smith said he is "dragging my feet" on any increase in East-West trade, and he added in an interview: "I am afraid that by giving the Iron Curtain countries some of the necessities of life we will only enable them to give more attention to the development of their military position. "There is a definite question in my mind whether we ought to do anything to help the economy of the countries that are causing all of the world's troubles." Sen. Russell (D-Ga- said he is not opposed to a stepup in East- West trade in nonstrategic materials but believes there must be a tight check rein on the nature of supplies shipped behind the Iron Curtain.

The latter is assumed to have been on the order of 16 megatons—the equivalent of energy produced by explosion of 16 million tons of TNT. J. The 1952 blast was exploded at ground level, which probably would not be the method used in a wartime attack unless a specific, pinpoint target was the objective. Exploded in mid-air after being dropped from a plane, with the point of burst at several thousand feet altitude, the area of total destruction and severe damage would have increased by several multiples. The power of the blast might have been diminished, but the zone Increased. The destruction produced by heat and the injury by the intense, instant radiation of the fusion bomb would have been correspondingly increased in area, only aliehtly diminished in intensity. The picture disclosed another peculiar characteristic of the hydrogen bomb, a pronounced lateral blast effect. The huge deadly "base surge" cloud of the bomb and the racing shock front flashed out to far greater width than any standard atomic fission bomb. Aloft, the sight was equally astounding. The thermonuclear explosion, like any atomic bomb, produced the too-familiar picture of a giant mushroom. But this time the stem of the mushroom grew and grew and grew—until it had poked £5 miles into the stratosphere. Even in the early stages of its development, in the first two minutes, the cloud column shot upward to 40,000 feet. The lens of the camera couldn't encompass it all, so an artist's sketch was displayed to show another fantastic dimension: the mushroom-top portion of the cloud, on reaching an altitude of about 10 miles, began spreading out laterally near the base of the stratosphere. It eventually attained a diameter of 100 miles. INDOCHINA (Continued from Page 1) brought in for this crucial battle of the seven-year-old Indochina war. The French claimed to have knocked out another division in the first major enemy assault of March 13, from which the rebels pulled back after three days of fighting.

The decision of the lower court in the case of the State of Arkansas BIG THREE (Continued from Page 1) fered when the West rejected his European security proposals and when they failed to arouse any great public excitement. Basic Objections The new Soviet proposals, the department said, "are subject to the basic objections which were raised at Berlin," and it went on to picture them as a kind of Trojan Horse device by which the Soviet Union would get a place for itself within the Western defense system in order to work for its destruction from the inside. "The present proposal of the grip of the Soviet Union on its captive peoples," the statement said. "It is a maneuver to gain admittance within the walls of the West, to undermine its security."
