Saturday, June 30, 1973 11 LAS VEGAS, Nov. (UPI) More than 100 air sampling stations in 21 western states were activated Friday to measure possible radioactive fallout from China's huge atmospheric hydrogen bomb test. Dr. Delbert Barth, director of the Environmental Protection Agency's (AEC) research center in Las Vegas, said a total of 117 sampling stations in 21 states will be monitoring the air for a week or more until above-normal radioactivity can no longer be detected. No radiation from the Chinese nuclear blast has been recorded thus far, according to a spokesman at the research center, China announced it detonated a hydrogen nuclear device in the atmosphere on Wednesday. Estimates by the U.S. Defense Department placed the test in the range of one to three megatons. A megaton is equivalent to a million tons of TNT. Atomic bombs dropped on Japan during World War.

The center is used by the Atomic Energy Commission for its underground nu clear testing program at the Nevada Test Site. Two Charged in Shooting AURORA, III. (UPI) -.
