AUBREY SMITH j:U/ - 5:04 - 7:06 - 9:03 New Weapons Hinted From 3 Directions By ELTON C. FAY Washington, Sepl. t — (/T)—More or less cryptic hints of terrifying ie\v weapons of death came from hree directions today. One was tucked away in Secre- ary of Commerce Wallace's con- roversial foreign policy letter to President Truman — a passing but significant reference to radioactive poison gas. Another was contained in a radio iddress by m Editor-Scientist Dr. ~3crald Wendt, who spoke of a 'super-deadly' poison so potent a single ounce could kill every per- lotnthc United States and Canada. Finally, Maj. Gen. Alden H. Waitt, chief of the army's chemical corps, frankly acknowledged thai ,nis experts have svorked wilh toxic agents thai have "power far. very far beyond anything we had known .n previous chemical warfare research." Waitl's remark lo a reporter was -i guarded commentary on ihc address at Schenectady, N. Y.. last .night by Wendt, editorial director if the magazine Sci'cnt Illustrated. Wendt said the poison was an innocent-looking crystalline ioxin thai had been developed by the chemical corps. Waitt said he did not know which specific poison the speaker was referring lo, so he declined lo specu- lale how it mighl be spread. The general was emphatic, however, in expressing belief that the polenlialilies of poison or biological warfare "rivals the atomic bomb in importance to national defense." Discussing the tactical and strategic use of such a weapon, he asserted that it "has a flexibility the atom bomb doesn't have — it can be directed against individuals.' The Chemical Warfare Service commander ' said he referred to avoid discussion of Wallace's reference to radioactive poison gases. Mentioning "a world of atomic bombs and olher revolutionary weapons, such as radio-active poison gases and biological warfare," the 3600-word lett'er made no other allusion to the subject. However, the fact that Wallace wrote of "other" weapons than the atomic bomb suggested that he was referring to something besides the now well-known product ol Ihe bomb explosion itself. While there was no amplification, this much is known about radioactivily: The alonnic bomb, in elonaling, produces radioactivity in two orms: (1). The direct radiation ol high-speed, high penetralion rays at the instant ot detonalion; 1). Contamination resulting from the crealion of fission products rcpre- serilingr oughly the ash of iiuclear I fission. In itself, this characteristic | of the bomb represents one form of poison warfare. But in the operation of atomic energy plants, the same by-products of nuclear fission occur.

MYLER Washington, Sept. 19 — <UP1 — The underwater alonnic explosion al Bikini strengthened the conviction of navy persons in and out of the armed forces thai 'the armies and navies of World War II arc oul of dale. Thai explosion added a new dimension lo warfare. Defensive weapons, as now constituted, would be helpless against it. It was a dimension of invisible and soundless death persisting for months in the form of widely disseminated radioactivity .against which no protection now seems j feasible. It was a dimension line nature of which is not yet fully understood and about which Ihe military is reluctant to talk — ostensibly for casons of national security. But om what is known, it seems rca- onablc to speculate lhal line atom- c bomb, as a depth charge, could: 1. Knock out a major harbor, like lew York's, for months. 2. Spread radioactive poison iroughout a waterfront area, in ic case of New York knocking ut the nation's financial heart and topping traffic in its most vital 10 rt. 3.

There was no linger- | ing radioactivity to make cither area untenable from a strictly military viewpoint. U was dissioated in high strata of the atmosphere. But the second Bikini lesl, in effect a depth charge, added enduring and spreading horror, with overtones of inevitable doom. Exploded below the surface of Bikini lagoon, it saturated with radioaclive poison millions of tons of erupting water which descended in atomized form. It poisoned not only Ihe waters but the very bottom of the lagoon, and the poison was spread lo areas far from line bursl by contaminated currents. Many ships that survived the air bursl, even though seriously damaged, could have carried on afterward. Ships more than three-quarters of a mile from lhc explosion suffered only slightly. But scores of ships too far dis- lanl to be damaged by nuclear violence in the underwater tcsl would have been put out of operation sooner or later as a result of creeping sickness spread among their crews by radioactive fog and spray.

PEACOCK Washington, Sept. 21 — (/B—Henry A. Wallace, private cili'/.cn, threw down the gauntlet to the Truman administration today for a continuing battle over foreign policy. The ousted secretary of commerce told the department's employees in a final message he was resigning "in order that I may be free as a private citizen lo continue to fight for world peace." And in a nationwide radio address last nighl he declared that "winning the peace is more important that high public office. It is. more importanl than any consideration of party politics." He removed any doubt that he would batllc on for his "go easy" wilh Russia ideas which brought him into conflict With the Ststo Department and led President Truman lo dismiss him from his official family. "The success of any policy,' Wallace said, . "rests ullimately upon the confidence and the will of the people. "There can be no basis 'or such ' success unless the people know and 'understand the issues—unless they arc given all the facts—and unless they seize the opoortunity to take part in the framing of foreign policy through full and open debate.' As the lowan stopped out he left . Congress members and others ask- iing two major questions: 1. Would the president's action end the uncertainty over American policy caused by Wallaces New York .address 10 days ago which contradicted Secretary of Slate Byrnes' . position at many points? Mr. Truman made clear he intended the dismissal as emphatic notice that he is standing four-square behind Byrnes. 2. What would be the effect wilh- in the Democratic parly and particularly on its chances in Novcm- cr's elections and in 1948? A frequently expressed Republi- an view was that the dispute cm- hasized the differences within the Democratic party . and enhanced lepublican prospects of winning ontrol of the next Congress. Some. Democrats contended their arly's ranks had now been closed nd: its .chances improved. One Democratic senator, talking vith* line underslanding that his amc would not be reported, said ie thought il was largely a -matter U.S. Policy Toward Russia Is Firm But Not Really Tough, Declares DeWitt Mckenzie By DeWITT MacKENZIE AP Foreign Affairs Analyst The Wallace episode has resulted in a good deal of bandying about of the phrase "get lough with Russia" which was discussed by the secretary of commerce in the explosive Madison Square Garden speech lhal now has resulted in his resignation from line cabinet. Mr. Wallace employed that expression when he declared ihal the United Stales in dealing with vine Soviet Union was reckoning with force which cannot be handled successfully by a "get lough with Russia" policy. He said thai, "line tougher we get, line tougher the Russians will get." Such colonul representations travel fast and far, and we arc likely to hear much more about this one. It therefore should be noted now — and well — tls«t the United Stales government never has promulgated a "get tough with Russia" policy. What it has done is to lay, down a foreign policy of © o Ihe circumstances in which he inds himself. Unhappily the circumstances frequently arc diffi- cull because the Russians arc dis- Guam Typhoon Damages Big Naval Base trustful of America.

It he did, he would have to be "lough," because these are hard days and British Prime Minister Chamberlain demonstration conclusively in 1938 that appeasement as a policy doesnt pay. Appeasement died at Munich where England, Italy and France handed Hitler little Czechoslovakia's Sudetenland on a platter and thereby encouraged him to embark on Qpnquest of Europe. As a matter of fact, the last thing in the world which Moscow would appreciate would be a "soft' policy. Russia isn't soft itself and despises softness in others.

The defendants, included John A and George L. Hartford, chiefs o line nationwide network of retai oullols and affilialcd operations, were found guilty by Federal Judge Walter C.

They were found to have coin spired lo restrain trade in frui products and "lo monopolize a ub stanlial part of such products ii Interstate Commerce." The ,niaxi mum penalty for each dcfcndan would be a $5,000 fine and a one yeitf prison sentence on each of tin two counts.

The government, in bringing the changes against A&P, contended lhal line ramified organization conspired to control "a substantial part of line food business of the Unilcd Slalcs." This was done, the government set forth, through these means: Control of the interlocking buying •and selling subsidiaries was unified in the New York headquarters.
