South of Galesburg on R 41 China Tests H-Bomb In Atmosphere By United Press International China announced today that it exploded a hydrogen bomb Wednesday and declared that it wanted to break "the nuclear monopoly by the superpowers." But Peking said it would never be the first to use nuclear weapons in war. In a brief communique issued from Peking and carried by the official New China News Agency, China said the nuclear test was only a defense move and had the ultimate aim of abolishing nuclear weapons. The announcement indicated the bomb was detonated in the atmosphere, a method of testing that has provoked strong criticism against France in recent weeks. The French are reportedly preparing atmospheric tests over the South Pacific. The Chinese statement, monitored in Hong Kong, did not mention the size of the blast, but U.S. defense analysts estimated that the yield was in the range of one to three megatons. A megaton is a million tons of TNT. It was the 15th blast since China began nuclear testing in 1964 and U.S. analysts said the explosion appeared to be the fifth largest ever produced by the Chinese. The statement said China "declares once again that at no time and under no circumstances will it be the first to use nuclear weapons." New Zealand, a principal critic of the French nuclear testing in the South Pacific, and U.N. Secretary General Kurt Waldheim Issued statements Wednesday opposing the renewed Chinese tests. Laird Says Nixon Will Give Answers WASHINGTON (UPI) President Nixon will respond to 'all questions about the Watergate affair toward the end of the Senate's hearings, White House counselor Melvin R. Laird was quoted es saying in a Washington Post interview Wednesday. Post reporter David S. Broder quoted Laird as saying Nixon would not "respond to every witness" but would answer "questions, all ques tions ... at a press conference when we get near the conclusion of the hearings." Broder said Laird, former defense secretary and recently appointed domestic affairs adviser to Nixon, reported having talked about the timing of a press conference with Nixon. "I think he's willing to do that... I don't think there will be any problem with that," Laird said. He also strongly hinted that White House Press Secretary Ronald L. Ziegler will be replaced as the President's spokesman at some point, the newspaper said. Although not directly implicated in Watergate crimes, Ziegler is considered to have lost considerable credibility through his handling of the scandal. Asked about the mood of the White House and the President, Laird was quoted as saying: "Well of course, tills is a tough period for the President. No question about that. But I have the feeling ... that morale about getting on with the business of government has improved. Against the Law SALEM, Ore.
