Algona Sailor Witnesses Recent H-Bomb Explosion Mr and Mrs Arnold Elbcrt, Algeria, recently received an interesting letter from their son, Arnie, who is in the navy, near Eniwefok Island. It reads in part —"It's about time I let you you folks know where 1 am. First off tilings are fine with me, lost a little weight and temper a little hotter. Will bring you up to date since we left Pearl Harbor which was April 2. Eight steaming clays later we made Eniwetok, which is no vacation spot by a long shot. It is about 2400 miles from Pearl. We anchored at this spot till April 12. At that date we left the speck for a smaller speck called Bikini Atol, which is 138 miles from Eniwetok. Since then we have been back and forth so much a guy wonders when he gets up in the morning if the ship's at Bikini, Eniwetok or in the middle. The name of the operation is Redwing, also called Task Force Seven. The reason for it is to test some of our latest weapons. So far they have completed two out of 19 tests. The first one was a 40 K. T. Atomic bomb which is equal to 40,000 tons of TNT. The second test was held a few days ago which you folks may have heard about. They .set off an H-bomb a few miles from Bikini. We were sitting 25 miles from the blast. We heard it whistle and then the sky lit up bright, as day. Without our special glasses, the flash would Arnie Elbert, Jr. blind a person for life. After the flash there was a big red and orange ball of fire going up and slowly turned into the well known mushroom-shaped cloud with the outer part of the top a deep bluish purple and the inside a ball of fire. I don't know how big an H-bomb it vvas but the cloud reached a height of 28 miles. It's been said it was the biggest of the 19. I doubt very much if I will ever see anything to compare with its beauty Our job out here is to haul around some of the V.I.P.'s, liko tonight we have a Real- Admiral and his staff aboard which wo haul back to Bikini. The weather out here lias been hot and rainy a good share of the time. Our engine house gels kind of warm. At times it varies between 120 and 130 degrees. That's where I lost weight, eight hours a day in that hole. We get no fresh vegetables or bread, no fresh milk, so we drink iced tea. Anyway that's what, the cook calls it. The Captain put out the word that we had 17 more tests and we could expect to be back in Long Beach by August and at the latest Christmas. As far as I know now this is as far as we go this trip. The mail is sort of messed up most of the time. The papers are getting here and I really look them over. It's Wednesday out here and Tuesday in Algona. Arnie enlisted in August, 1954, and has had but one leave, just after completing boot training at San Diego, Calif. It was a year ago his parents went to California to see him. His ship is the destroyer, U.S.S. Knudson. LIGHTNING A fire caused by lightning recently destroyed a $6,000 dairy barn on the George Man-eel farm two miles west of Osage.
