/ice-Admiral Blandy Con
sidering 10-Mile Van
OFF BIKINI ATOLL. July 9 —
(U.R)—'Vice Admiral W. H. P.
Blandy. Operation Crossroads com
mander, considered a proposal
Tuesday to allow airborne ob
servers to approach as close as
10 miles to Bikini lagoon when the
atom bomb is exploded underwa
ter in a second test July 25.
Col. Robert Snider, radiological
safety officer for the project, said
he had made such a recommenda
tion to Blandy when studies show
ed ‘‘the danger area of radiation
would be confined to an eight
mile circle as we had predicted
for the first test.”
In the first test, when the bomb
was exploded in the air, observers
were excluded from a 20-mile
radius lest they should be perilled
by harmful radiations from the
deadly atomic cloud.
Brig. Gen. Roger Ramey, com
mander of air units taking part
in the atom tests, said he has
asked Blandy .to fly a B-29 direct
ly over the underwater blast to take
“Observations have convinced
us that safety factors will permit
such a flight with a reasonable
safety factor at 30.000 feet and a
definite safety factor at 35,000
feet,” Ramey said.
The B-29 would fly downwind at
a speed of between 500 and 600
miles an hour. Ramey said. It
would take the blast waves rough
ly eight Seconds to reach the
plane," and by that time we hope
to be out of the danger area.”
Meanwhile. Blandy announced
that if the able-day atom bomb
had exploded over the Battleship
Nevada as intended, the 30-year
old warship would have been sunk
or totally disabled.
Instead, the bomb exploded at a
distance variously estimated at
from 500 to 1.900 feet from the;
Nevada, near the transport Gil
liam. The Gilliam “sank in a mat
ter of seconds.” Blandy said.
Divers found the Gilliam’s hull
ripped open vertically in two dif
ferent places and her stack was
“shredded like a bouquet of flow
ers,” he added.

Questions and Answers
By DOUGLAS LARSEN
WASHINGTON.—Here are some
general questions from veterans
and their relatives:
Q—While my husband was in
the Army I didn’t apply for a
family allowance. I didn’t really
need it, and I didn’t understand
exactly how to apply for it. My
husband didn’t apply, either. Is it
possible to apply now for this
money which was rightfully due
me and get it?
Q—I have been paying on my
government insurance ever since
I got out of the Army. But my
wife tells me this isn’t enough.
She says I l.ave to change it soon.
Is this true?
A—Yes. You have to convert it
within eight years after you took
it out. If you took it out after
Jan. 1, 1946 you have to convert
it within five years.
Q—I am a veteran. Before I
went into the service I ran a bowl
ing alley. That is the only busi
ness I know. When I got out re
cently, I tried to get material and
priorities to build another alley,
and I was turned down. Doesn’t
a veteran get building priority?
A—The government has set up
a priority system to give veterans
first choice on building materials
for new homes. But there is no
active program to give veterans
preference for materials for busi
Q—When I got out of service I
went to work for a shoe store
which was a rival of the one I
worked for beicre I was drafted.
I worked two months and couldn’t
get along with the boss. I quit
and applied for my old job with
the other firm, but they r/fused t
take me. The? said I had lost my
rights by going to work first for
the rival company. Is this true?
A—As long as you qualify in
every other respect and apply for
reinstatement within 90 days after
discharge, your pre - service em
ployers have to give you your old
