(ff)A gigantic atomic explosion rocked entrenched Marines "like an earthquake" and set fire to brush and trees on distant mountains Friday. The Atomic Energy Commission said the blast could have been the most powerful ever set off in the United States. The might weapon shook the surrounding desert and blistered the breaking dawn with a blinding flash. The 1,090 Marines were entrenched 5,700 yards from where the weapon was exploded beneath a balloon at an altitude of 1,500 feet. 'Pretty Rough' In a telephone interview with The Associated Press, Brig. Gen. Harvey Tschrigi, commander of the Marine brigade, said: "It was pretty rough. Lots of dust. It shook us like an earthquake. I felt like I was on roller skates for a few seconds." The general was in a trench 50 feet closer to ground zero than those of the 1,090 men in his command. Gen. Tschrigi said there were some cave-ins in the trenches but that they were not serious. One marine, Pfc Theodore Sturgion of St. Louis, Mo., was buried by a cave-in. It took 15 minutes to get him out. He was not hurt. As the dirt began to cascade down upon him as he crouched in his trench, he grabbed a buddy and was able to keep his head above the earth. The AEC said Friday's bomb could have had a peak power ex ceeding the largest device explod ed here previously. It added that the power possibly could have ranged slightly below the former big shot. More Spectacular Veteran observers said the fireball Friday morning was more spectacular than any that they had ever seen. The weapon was rated unofficially at between three and four times as big as the World War II atomic bombs which devastated the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. As the tremendous Wast went off a wave of heat enveloped News Nob, 13 miles away. It was followed by a terrific concussion and Shockwaves which roared and groaned across the southern Nevada desert. The explosion was the greatest and most spectacularly beautiful Atom Blast ....

The United Cement, Lime and Gypsum Workers Union said 12,000 of its 25,000 members are idle at 56 of the nation's 140 cement plants. Talks Break Down Walkouts have followed break downs in company-level negotiations in which the union has held close to a demand pattern of wage and fringe changes seeking a package of close to 20 cents an hour more than the industry's current $1.74 to $2.44 pay scales. A spokesman for the union said Friday that further spread of the strike appeared likely, but that settlements are expected shortly oo the West Coast, as yet little affected by shutdowns. He said there has been no settlement with a major producer since that Moriday with the Marquette Cement Manufacturing Co., operator of 10 plants, which agreed to a 16-cent package for 2,000 employ­ es at eight plants where contracts with the cement workers had expired. About one-third of the cement industry is unaffected by the strike. Most of this segment has production units represented by other unions, and some plants employing members of the cement workers union have contracts which still have time to run. The bulk of the union's contracts expired in May. Backed by Meany The cement workers received backing in their strike from George Meany, president of the AFL-CIO, who wrote to Felix Jones, president of the union that the cement industry is "one of the most profitable in the nation" and "can well afford to grant the reasonable concessions you are seeking." Initial effects of the strike appeared in the East where railroads serving the Lehigh ,Valley of Pennsylvania, where one-tenth of the nation's cement production is concentrated, reported a falloff of carloadings, and contractors reported inability to get cement.

Four Injured, Homes Ruined At Lake City Many Farm Buildings in County Wrecked, Trees Uprooted, Wires Down Two tornadoes ripped into the Carroll area early Thursday and left an unestimated toll of debris strewn damage in their wakes.

Only In Rare Instqnce LONDON Iff)—Nine doctors considered the question: Should aj doctor tell? They agreed that in | general a doctor must keep his! patient's secrets — but there are I rare instances when he can't. The new "code of ethics" for the profession was published in the medical journal Practitioner as "a guide to what every good doctor should know." It attempts to solve some of the doctor's dilemmas. Things Have Changed One of the editors of Practitioner, Dr. William Thomson, said: "We felt a careful examination of up-to-date medical etiquette was overdue. Things have greatly changed. . . . This will do a lot A physician finds that a patient who is a locomotive engineer is prone to "blackouts." Should the doctor tell the man's superiors? "No," is the answer.

Stassen rejected Friday a Russian proposal for a big power renunciation of the use of nuclear weapons. The American disarmament delegate added, however, the United States is ready, to pledge it will not use nuclear weapons against any country which is "not in violation of the United Nations charter," ' High Court Rules Verdict Excessive ST. PAUL, Minn. WV-Ruling that the verdict was excessive, the Minnesota Supreme Court Friday directed Donald Cox of Iowa Falls, Iowa, to consent to a reduction of a jury award in his favor from $75,000 to $52,000, or otherwise submit to a new trial. A jury in Hennepin County District Court returned the verdict against the Rock Island Railroad in a $125,000 suit instituted by Cox for personal injuries he suffered when the door of a boxcar fell on him April 8. 1954, in Iowa Falls. Chief Justice Roger L. Dell said in the unanimous decision that the damages awarded, considered in the light of their over-all effect, are excessive and not reasonably supported by the evidence. Cox and a fellow employe were opening the door of a boxcar on tie premises of the Ralston Purina Co., for which Cox worked, when the accident occurred. The boxcar was consigned to the Purina company but it was owned by the railroad. "This is one of the few occasions when a doctor could tell. There may be justification if all attempts to persuade the diseased person to leave his employment have failed. But in coming to a decision in such an extreme case, the doctor should search his conscience." Dr. Francis Camps, home office pathologist, gives advice on dealing with drivers accused of drunken driving. If unconscious, the driver must be examined and this creates a doctor-patient relationship. In such a case, Dr. Camps says, the doctor should give no information without the patient's consent. This would seem to prevent a doctor giving evidence against the driver without the driver's permission. Urge Ban Lifted Among changes recommended in the review is that British doctors be permitted to be identified when appearing on radio or television programs. The ban was imposed by the General Medical Council years ago. It declared personal publicity for practitioners was "unethical." But Prof. L. J. Witts contends that "anonymous broadcasts are only slightly less offensive socially than anonymous letters." He urged that the ban on the use of names be withdrawn or modified.

Palmer, 80, owner of newspapers and radio stations in Texas and Arkansas and a philanthropist particularly interested in character education of youngsters, died Thursday night. , He suffered a stroke at his home and was pronounced dead shortly after arrival at St. Michael's Hospital. An associate, J. Q. Mahaffey, editor of the Texarkana Gazette and Daily News, said: "It is no exaggeration to say that Mr. Palmer was ,a business genius. Business was his hobby, his relaxation, and nothing delighted him ntore than a toughrclvic ov hbusiness^problem." , He owned or held Interests in newspapers at Texarkana, astride the Texas-Arkansas border, and El Dorado, Hot Springs, Camden. Palmer's radio interests were in Texarkana, Hot Springs and Camden. He pioneered the teletypesetter system for newspapers and set up the first such wire circuit in the United Slates. The system permits newspaper type to be set by perforated tape instead of by direct manual operation. The perforated tape can be transmitted between cities by wire. Palmer was president of the Palmer Foundation, a philanthropic organization he endowed in 1844. Among other things, the foundation financed research and cooperated in publishing two groups of school reading textbooks known as the "Golden Rule Series."

CHURCHILL, Man. iff)—The second rocket firing in a U.S. lest series seeking scientific information on the upper atmosphere ended in failure early Friday. The first rocket went 160 miles up Thursday. A brief U.S. Army announcement from this Hudson Bay military base said the second "flight was unsuccessful" but gave no indication how far the Aerobee Hi rocket traveled before crashing. It was in the air about 25 seconds. The Aerobee Hi normally travels about 1.28 miles a second. A spokesman said no one was injured in the test and no explosion was heard following the crash. Lt. Col. L. G. Smith of the Army Ordnance Corps, in charge of the launchings, said apparently "premature burnout" occurred. The rocket launched Thursday was the first of the biggest firings of the International Geophysical year, an 18-month period of scientific study that began Monday. The first rocket was in flight 4 minutes, 30 seconds. It came to earth 80 miles southeast of Ft. Churchill, nearly disintegrated from atmospheric friction. The flight set a local altitude record, besting the 156-mile mark set in a 1956 test. The rocket carried 146 pounds of instruments to measure chemicals, electricity, air density, wind velocity and direction and cosmic rays. Tiny radio transmitter! sent the data back to earth. damage The roof was torn off a barn at the Joe Kohorst farm. A machinery shed and granary was leveled at the Albert and Arnold Brockman farm.

"The tornado just hit the southwest edge of Lake City." The governor explained that the flight was a National Guard train ing measure and that he "hitch hiked" a ride. Loveless was en route for a holi day appearance at Whiting and flew to Sioux City, but made the remainder of the trip to Whiting by car. farm suffered roof damage, and a hay barn on the Leo Hulsing farm on Highway 30 was badly damaged. The Albin Venner and Earl Schrad farms also sustained considerable ibuilding damages. "Between Kiron and Boyer more than two 'dozen farms lost one or more buildings and the tree damage was terrific," H. C. "Red" Schogren, district manager of Iowa Public Service at Carroll said. The utility company said a substantial amount of damage was caused from a point about five miles north of Arcadia to old Highway 30 in a northwesterly to southeasterly direction.

Gotsch, 20, of Glidden. Both vehicles were west Deaths Rise; Fear Record Traffic Toll By The Associated Press •Traffic deaths across the nation mounted Friday at a pace which safety experts said would reach the estimated 535 for the four-day Independence Day holiday if it continues. Hundreds of highway accidents Thursday night resulted in what safety officials termed "an alarming spurt" of traffic deaths as motorists packed highways homeward bound after Independence Day outings. The count of dead from traffic mishaps stood at 149 Friday. In addition 88 died from drowning and 26 were killed in miscellaneous accidents for a total of 263. There were no deaths from fireworks. 102-Hour Period Deaths counted in the long holiday cover the 102 hour period from 6 p.m. (local time) Wednesday to midnight Sunday. National Safety Council exports, who had predicted 535 traffic deaths for the holiday period, had been "encouraged" by the early reports as the toll appeared running a little below a nonholiday Thursday. But with the heavy increase during the night, a council spokesman said if the pace continued, the council's estimate of 535 deaths "could be matched." The council urged drivers and enforcement agencies to work together to hold down the highway fatalities. Would Set Record If the estimatd 535 toll is reached, it would be a record for the Independence Day holiday. The record is 491 set in the Fourth of July holiday of 1950.

The campaign of denunciation against the quartet picked up momentum at meetings and rallies throughout the Soviet Union. Lazar Kaganovich, one of the four leaders, was singled out for new and stronger accusations, which could foreshadow legal action against him. Military Endorsement The army and navy publicly announced their endorsement'of Nikita Khrushchev in his ousting of Kaganovich, V. M. Molotov, Georgi Malenkov and Dmitri Shepilov from their high posts. Red Star declared the four were guilty of "fractional activity" aimed at "undermining the basis of the Soviet Union's defensive capacity, to shake the unity of the people and army, which would have been of benefit to the enemies of our state—the imperialists and aggressors." The article also referred to "treacherous activities" by tha four leaders. The accusation against Kaganovich was made by Nikifor T. Kal- chenko, premier of the Ukrainian Republic of the U.S.S.R. Kalchenko said Kaganovich had made "grave and unfounded accusations" against the leaders of the Ukrainian Republic. Kalchen­ ko said this was done while Kaganovich was secretary of the Central Committee of the Ukrainian Communist Party under Stalin's reign, "He leveled grave, unfounded accusations against many leading executives and representatives of the foremost Ukrainian intelligent sia," Kalchenko said. "Had Kaganovich not been recalled from the Ukraine in good time he would have wreaked tremendous damage to the Ukrainian Communist Party and the Ukrainian people." Kalchenko's accusations were made at a meeting of party propaganda workers in Kiev Thursday and published in Pravda and other papers Friday.
