Wayne Morse (R-Ore) hts iniened In the Congrenlonil Record. The three new documents; to far unpublished, show that the supposedly friendly Chinese Nationalist government ha: been In the same category as Russia in trying to obtain the ·ecrct of the atomic bomb. , Furthermore, the Chine** confidential instructions show a consilient attempt to obtain A-bomb secrets, beginning immediately after the Hiroshima explosion in 1»4S and extending through 1948. ' While this kind of e«plon«ge ii to be expected from a satellite country, it js I highly questionable, if not unfriendly, ict on the part of a government which has been kept alive only by millions in U.S. cash, materlali and military support. The first secret Chinese cable ii dated September 1, 194J, immediately after the Hiroshima ind Nagasaki explosions. "It reads. . "From: Chinese Air Force Headquarters "To; Air Attache, c/o Chinese Air Force Office In tr.S,A. "Your cable received, You are Instructed to continue, seirch for information in regard atomic bomb. "C. J. Chow.". C. J. Chow, who signed the cable, Is the commanding general Of the rationalist Chinese Air Force, and one ot the highest m«n in Chiang Kai-Shek's councils. The second cable Ii dated December {, 1946, and shows that oven after · great deal of publicity In the United States over the leak of atomic secrets, Chiang's government was still .endeavoring to penetrate our security. The cable reads; "From: Chinese Air Force Headquarters "To: Air Attache, c/ Chinese Air Force Office Jn US.A.. "You are Instructed to collect the information In regard to the report of the .results of the Bikini atomic bomb tests in In July and end back immediately for our study. "C. J. Chow" The two above cables have come to light in a mtmner somewhat similar to the way in which the Russian spy ring in Canada was exposed-through a code officer, In Canada, the code clerk of the Russian Embassy, Igor Gouzenko, decided that his country should not be spying on the United States. In Washington, Captain Fang, code officer of the Chinese Air. Mission, also had misgivings ibout Chinese prying into the secrets ot a government that was supporting China, and supplied the above translations from his original coding no(es. · · , * * * 'Another document, perhaps even more significant, It I top-socrct instruction sent "To all Chinese Air Force personnel In the United State* re: Instructions regarding methods end Incentives for collecting information for Chinese Air Force Intelligence." This document is a long one. mimeographed on thin Chinese paper, and lent out in 1948, a data which could bo significant In that at that time Chiang Kai-Shek was being pushed toward . Shanghai, and hid little chance of maintaining · : foothold In China. The fact that he was so anxious to obtain U.S. military secrets at this late date leads to the speculations that they were wanted not for Nationalist China, but for trading purposes with Communist China. In »ny event, the secret, instructions to Chi- oneae of fleers, to collect American military in.', formation covered almost every possible item in the military booka. Here are the highlights: "Intelligence report on technical material: "1, The'lotett type of denign or model nnd Jn- formition in rcgird to all types of aircraft, such as specifications of material,' performance of airplane, etc., "8.

B enn Paris police cracked down on local taxicab drivers unexpectedly one day and made them all take new driving tests and eye examinations More renewing their licenses. The cabbies were not pleased. They struck back by suddenly observing all ordinances to the letter: refused to exceed legal speed limits; stopped politely at 'intersections to let pedestrians walk across instead of the' usual mad dash; obediently halted for every "stop" sign. The result was, according to Time Magazine's report, the biggest and most hopeless traffic jam Paris had known in a decade. The police, knowing when they were licked backed down. * * * That reminds me of the time in the late '30s that four Paris traffic cops were sent to London to learn why things ran so much more smoothly on the streets of the English metropolis. The four returned after two months of indoctrination, determined to moke Paris traffic conform to English standards. On their first day back on the job three were struck down by harum-scarum French drivers, and the fourth promptly resigned from the force. * * * Great writers discuss their art: Says Winston jplmrchill; "Writing a book is an adventure. To begin with, it is a joy and an amusement. Then it becomes a mistress. And then it becomes tyrant, and in the last phase, when you are reconciled to your servitude, you kill the monster." Note; William Faulkner: "I write when the spirit moves. And it moves every day." Samuel Johnson to an admirer: "No man but a blockhead ever wrote except for money." * * * A group of Park Avenue-ites went "slumming" on the lower East Side, and stopped for a bite at a side street delicatessen. Being frightfully democratic and all that, one of the be- jewelled matrons smiled at the shabby waiter in a manner she obviously thought devastating and cooed, "What would you eat if you were I?" "Roast beef," he answered, "but not here." Questiqns And Answers Q--What was the weight of the larjest known elephant tusk? A--It weighed 235 pounds and was 11 feet long, 8 inches thick. Q--Do dogs have the ability to foretell weather conditions? A--Many superstitions have been handed down concerning this belief. Some people believe that if a dog rolls in the snow or eats grass, that bad weather is approaching, that if a dog's coat suddenly has an odor it is going to rain, and that if his nose is moist, good, weather will prevail. Q--Which city boasts the first drive-in fill- Ing station? A--Pittsburgh, Pa., where one was opened In December, 1913. ' Q--What is the Latin word used to describe books printed before 1501? A--Books printed before 1501 are known now as "incunabula," which is the Latin word for cradle. Q--How many Pullman cars would be needed to .carry the number · of passengers who can be accomodated on the "Queen Mary"? A--Sixty-five Pullman cars would be needed to carry the ship's 2075 passengers. The crew alone would occupy 15 Pullman cars.

George looked up at the nigh sky. "How do you like the moon?" "Lousy," said Verna. "You lack romance," George laushed. "Now climb Into the truck with Tom and I'll get things moving." Verna hesitated. "You're sure this girl is worth all this trouble? "Of course. She's lovely, unpredictable--" "Oh, stop it!" Vcrna turned and scrambled into the cab of the ;ruck. The truck driver grinned ind followed her. Tom Fabcr didn't know the whole plot. For all he knew some young folks were for a ride in the moonlight, le was glad to get rental for the truck and wasn't Inquisitive, i In the moonlight, George paused and looked over the ground. Everything was clear for the action .that wtis to follow. So he started ;hack toward the carnival midway. Reaching it, he caw a familiar fig- lUre, Albert P. Sutworlh, apparently in search of someone-- either his daughter or George Kendall. In cither case, George did not want to meet his former client, so he ducked out of sight, hoping he hadn't been seen. George waited till he felt the const w*s clear. Then he took deep breath and headed toward Max Arnu'i concession stand. George was a determined young man, once h* Mt hit court*, m was no quitter, Bwldn, Marilyn was the girl for him.

An unorthodox girl called for unorthodox methods. Slowly and cautiously, George made his way between Chief Big Bear's concession stand and the side-show tent next to it. The sing-song of the side-show barker dinned in George's ears. And, suddenly, with his heart pounding, his hands trembling, he heard Marilyn's voice from the concession stand! George came around to the front of the stand. Marilyn was a few feet away. He could have reached out and touched her. he thought. This, to coin a phrase, waa it · · · rjEORGE paused and tried to rev ^ member everything he had read in the judo manual that afternoon.

"Marilyn!" called Mr. Sutworth. "Dndl" came the girl's reply.

Marilyn was screaming at the top of her lungs, claw- Ing at him with her free hand and trying to kick htm with her feet, which he held tightly under his arm. She was even trying to bite him, but she couldn't reach his shoulder. George had gone this far and he couldn't turn back cow, even if he wanted to. "Kidnaper!" Shouts drowned out the barken and the noise ot the midway, in the background came the merry- go-round music. "The Stars and Strlpca Forever." George didn't look back. The girl continued to claw, scratch and kick, but she wasn't making much progress. George ran, half stumbling ioward the truck. The path which had seeraed clear only a moment before seemed to be strewn with chuck holes and bits of wire and sticks for him to fall over, but he avoided falling. Re heard more shouts and knew that the first of the pursuMs had started after him. How far behind, George did not know, because he couldn't turn his head to see, but the cries served to give him new strength. · · · A T last he reached the truck. With a lusty heave, George sent the girl sprawling into the hay and straw heaped on the bed of the truck. Marilyn tried to lift herself, but George pulled hlnuelf over the tailboard and fell exhausted on the straw beside her. "Okay, GeorgeT" It was Vcrna calling from the cab. "All let," George replied, making sure that Marilyn was there Mtlde him. She had fallen on Ihe straw ind apparently was too exhausted at Uie moment to do anything. But that moment ended quickly.

Washington - At Eniwctok, September, the United States w explode the world's first hydroge bomb -- unless 'the Soviet Unio gets ahead of us. Contrary to pn liminary reports, the new Eniwe tok bomb will be a true prototyj of the terrible super bomb of a most limitless power. If. SUCCCEI ful, the September test will prov that super bombs can in fact b constructed. It is far from certain, howeve: that the Soviet Union will not ge ahead of us. Before his arres Klaus Fuchs had transmitted t Russia ail current information o the hydrogen bomb problem. Tl: American effort to build a hydro gen bomb was kept in low geu until the outbreak of the Korear war. An all out Soviet effort pre sumably began much earlier. In short, the news of the Eniwetok test can have a two-edged meaning. Because of these grim facts these reporters have recently made an intensive inquiry into the slate of this country's air defenses. The results, which will occupy this space for some days, sr£ curious, disturbing and heartening-- all in. the same breath, as it were. On the one hand, we do not now have an effective air defense. And on the basis of present plans and appropriations, we are unlikely to have an effective defense in the focseeable future. Op the other hand, improved air warning systems and truly revolutionary new guided missiles have recently been developed. And these will make it possible to defend the United States in the air--if we choose to pay the considerable price. In order to understand the in place by the end «t this summer. But even then. Important. gaps will remain in the radar screen on this continent; and facilities for really early warning which are the necessary foundation of any fully effectiv* defense, will still be Jacking. We are also gravely deficient i n . the other part of an effective air defense system. Fighter aircraft production, still lagging shockingly, has been mainly, concentrated, on the F-66 type that is TO urgently needed in Korea. The all- weather types, the F-86 and. its Intended, successor, the 'F-88, have rcen coming out in driblets or no* at all. Existing stocks of F-flS aircraft have also been heavily de- ileted, to protect bur forces in Corea and our strategic air baser n Britain. At present, therefore, his country can hardly be said to lave night and bad weather pro- ection. · · Still speaking as of now, this is robably not so hair raising as the aked facts had first seemed. Ac- ordlng to the-best estimates, the oviets currently possess about 00 TU-4 bombers -- their im- rovement of the captured B-29 lus a very small number of the ig B-36 light bomber sljown on- Way Day a year ago. state of our defenses today, two facts must be remembered.' First the so-called economies of former Secretary of Defense Louis A Johnson caused even the most promising and vital defense projects to be laid on one side, until the outbreak of the Korean war. Second, the · temptation to accord a low priority to air defense was especially great, because inely effective defense a genu- Blmply could not be built until the recent developments above-mentioned. The chief of air staff, Gen. Hoyt S. Vandenberg, has told the country that, as of now, 30 per cent of any attacking force could be destroyed on the way to its target. Like so many figures emanating from the Pentagon, however, this one, as of now, has a large Infusion of the theoretical. The truth is that both the components of our air defense system are appallingly weak. Construction of the basic radar screen or "radar fence," which was begun after the aogression in Korea, is not yet complete. Most of the many stations will be' day's delay! Hence the TU-4s are the im- iediate problem. They arc be-' eved not to be equipped with oori radar bombsights. Their op- ational radius is only about 2,0 miles. So far as is known, the U-4 squadrons have not been trained in the tricky technique of air-refueling, which would extend this limited radius. Thus, any Soviet air attack on the Unite* 1 States would have to be planned as a one-way mission; and because of the bomb-sight problem, would probably liave to be launch-" ed by day and in good weather. Against such an attack, even our feeble present, air defenses might conceivably attain General Vandenberg's theoretical estimate ot 30 per cent of destruction. But this hope depends squarely on the cor-* rectncss of the rather shaky information about Soviet air capabilities. The mere pitting of the TU-4s with radar bomb-sights for' all-weather operation would revolutionize the entire picture. Furthermore, as time goes by, the Soviet strategic air force will surely be improved. The Soviet atpmic stockpile will surely grow, whether or no the Soviets produce a hydrogen bomb. And the inten- · sive Soviet guided . missile effort may well bear important fruits. In short, with every day and month that passes, the danger' hanging over us will grow greater and greater. There is only one feasible counter measure--to be- Bin the improvement of the American air defense system without a Dear Miss Dix: My wife is a ine woman who keeps a spotless house, is attractive and well groomed herself, and serves won- cierful meals.
