Better Atom Bombs
Ottered by U. S. is
Peace Alternative
By *he Associated Press
NEW YORK. Aug. 29—The
United States has informed the
United Nations Atomic Energy
Commission that, lacking a political
system which will avoid war, the
only alternative is the development
of better atom bombs and better
ways of delivering them.
^“This might deter a nation from
starting an aggressive war by mak
ing it apparent that victory is im
possible,” the repbrt said.
In two documents the American
delegation told the commission that
science has failed to find adequate
material defense against the atomic
weapon, and added:
■ "The remaining alternative is de
vfelopment of superior bombs and
superior ways of delivering them to
the target as counteroffensive weap
The report said that "The only
complete defense against the
i atomic* bomb is a system that will
avoid war.”
' The commission held its first
meeting in New York June 14. when
one of the reports was communi
cated to the 11 nation members.
The second document was presented
to them July 10.
“When we realize that only one
bomb, properly placed, is required
virtually to paralyze an entire city
of average size, that no V-2 rocket
aimed at England was shot down,
and also that only a relatively small
amount of material and equipment
must be smuggled into a country
for the construction of a preplaced
bomb, an adequate defense seems
still more remote," the report
In discussing the potentialities of j
atomic energy for peace, the Amer-!
ican scientists cited its possible ap- i
plications to power production, new!
chemicals, new vacuum techniques.1
new instruments, new mathemati-1
cal procedures and new metallur- j
gical techniques.
Nimitz Sees 'Whalebacks'
As Defense Against A-Bomb
SEBAGO. Me., Aug. 29 (/P).—The |
“big thing” in redesigning naval j
vessels for defense against the
atomic bomb “is to get away from
fiat surfaces,” Admiral Chester W.
Nimitz, chief of Naval Operations,
said yesterday.
"An extension of the turret prin
ciple, giving more rounded sides,
like the old Great Lakes whale
backs, will be needed to resist the
terrific pressure set up by the
bomb,” the admiral said in an in-1
terview while visiting his daughter,)
Mary, who has spent the summer)
at Camp Wabunaki.
The change in warship design has
been suggested by William S. New-i
ell, president of the destroyer build-]
ing Bath Iron Works Corp., who j
witnessed the Bikini tests.

Roy C. Holliss, New York News
President, Dies in Auto Wreck
Driver of Car Badly
Injured as Vehicle
Crashes Into Pole
By the Associated Press
FAIRFIELD, Conn., Aug. 29.—
Roy C. Holliss, 56, acting presi
dent of the News Syndicate Co.,
Inc., publishers of the New York
Daily News, was killed here early
today when his automobile
crashed into a pole on the shore
The car was being driven. Officer
Morris Kessler of the Fairfield Po
lice Department said, by Frederick
H. Bedford, jr., 55, president of the
Atlas Supply Co. of New York and a
director of numerous corporations,
including Standard Oil of New Jer
Mr. Bedford was taken to the
Bridgeport Hospital where attaches
said he was expected to live.
Mr. Kessler, conducting the inves
tigation. said the car, owned by Mr.
Holliss, crashed into a pole on Con
necticut Route 136. near Mr. Bed
ford’s home, where the two execu
tives were headed after having spent
the evening in Fairfield’s Green
Farms section.
The officer said the force of the
collision threw both men from the
car and their bodies were found
lying on the highway. He reported
that Mr. Holliss apparently was
killed instantly.
Chief James Kranyik of the Fair
field police said Mr. Bedford will be
booked on a technical charge of
operating a motor vehicle so as to
cause death.
In Bridgeport Hospital. Mr. Bed
ford was treated for chest injuries
and possible fracture of his left leg.
His condition was described as "fair
ly good."
—AP Wirephoto.
Chief Kranyik said the accident
occurred about 12:45 a m. and the
impact of the crash moved the pole
about 10 feet.
M. T. Moore of Weston, who
reached the scene shortly after the
accident, said Mr. Bedford told him,
according to Chief Kranyik, that
he “didn’t know what happened.”
Chief Kranyik said he had learned
that Mr. Holliss and Mr. Bedford
had played golf earlier in the day
at the Blind Brook Country Club,
Rye, N. Y., where they dined, and
then headed this way. Mr. Holliss
had a summer home in Redding.
In addition to his widow. Mr.
Holliss is survived by three daugh
ters. Mrs. John Patterson. Mrs.
Philip Howard and Mrs. Charles
Young, all of Bronxville, and four
grandchildren. All were reported
at the Redding home.
'Continued From First Page.)
Robertson home shortly after the
body was discovered. His descrip
tion of Mrs. Robertson and the
clothing she wore when she left
home tallied with the police descrip
tion of the dead woman, Sergt.
Curtis said.
Later Commodore Sprague iden
tified the body at the District
Morgue. Commodore Sprague and
his wife Marie, whp is Capt. Rob
ertson’s sister, make their home at
the Legation street address.
The Navy Department identified I
Capt. Robertson as a native of!
Washington who attended Western
High School here before graduating
from the Naval Academy in 1922.
Mrs. Robertson, the former Phyllis
E. MacStay of Pasadena, Calif.,
married him at Oakland, Md„ in
1934, it was said.
Capt. Robertson figured in the |
news in January, 1945. when Under
secretary of the Navy Bard pinned
two decorations on him for heroism
in Pacific amphibious campaigns.
With his wife and son Jimmy look
ing on, Capt. Robertson received a
Legion of Merit and a Gold Star in
lieu of a second Legion of Merit for
heroism in the Roi-Namur, Saipan
and Pelelieu landings.
At Pelelieu, the Navy said, he
commanded the tractor and control
groups which brought the assault
troops to shore. After his return to
the United States following the
Pelelieu campaign, he was stationed
with the Bureau of Naval Personnel
Charles Robertson, a brother-in
law of the woman, said funeral ar
rangements have not been made.

Truman Due to Leave
Bermuda Today and
Reach Here Monday
By Josvph A. Fox
Star Staff Correspondent
29.—President Truman today trained
his sights on home alter a week in
British waters.
Ending an 18-day vacation, the
President is definitely due back in
Washington late Monday. Orders
for the presidential yacht Williams
burg to weigh anchor and head
westward are expected sometime to
With good weather, the 700-mile
homeward passage will take about
three days. The yacht will go home
by way of the Virginia Capes rather
than the northerly passage through
the Chesapeake-Delaware Canal,
the route traversed when Mr. Tru
man left Washington. No addi
tional stops are planned after leav
ing here.
If weather permits, Mr. Truman
will spend much of today on the
sun deck of his yacht after a walk
and a swim.
Rain, w’hich spoiled the President’s
fishing trip Tuesday, continued in
termittently yesterday. Mr. Truman
therefore spent most of the day
going over official papers flown here
from Washington and talking over
budgetary problems with Secretary
of the Treasury John W. Snyder.
70 Columns fo A-Bomb
>y tti» Associated Prist
f.’EW YORK, Aug. 29.—The New
Yorker Magazine, ordinarily devoted
to sharp-edged articles, Action and
cartoons dissecting the foibles of
society, this week gives its entire
editorial space of about 70 columns
to a description of the atomic bomb
ing of Hiroshima.
To explain why they turned over
the pages of the magazine to John
Hersey. former yar correspondent
and novelist, for his article on
Hiroshima, the editors announced
they did so "in the conviction that
few of us have yet comprehended
the all but incredible destructive
power of this weapon.”
Mr. Hersey declares in the article
that early figures on the number of
killed and injured—78,150 dead and
37,425 wounded—had been changed
by investigators to at least 100,000
killed and almost 100,000 injured, out
of a total population of 245,000.
"Sixty-two thousand out of 90,000
buildings were destroyed,” the article
states. “Six thousand more damaged
beyond repair. In the heart of the
city * • * only five modem buildings
that could be used again without
major repairs.”

“Deprive the Nazi conspirators of

New Trials Scheduled.
Mr. Dodd is executive trial counsel

Mr. Jackson earlier had urged the
conviction of 22 individual Nazi
leaders, who with the organizations
have been on trial since last No
vember. If an organization is con
victed of war crimes, the next step
by the Allies will be to identify and
try individual members other than
the 22 principals in the main case.
Mr. Dodd told the tribunal that
the organizations, with possibly
3,000,000 volunteer members, con
stituted "the political frankenstein
of our era, which brought terror
and fear to Germany and spread
horror and death throughout the
"The leadership corps of the Nazi
party was its body, the Reich cab

Deals With Five Groups.
In his 10,000-word summation,
Mr. Dodd dealt only with the prose

another American prosecutor.
A seventh organization, the SD
secret police of the Reichsfuehrer

quarters. Mr. Dodd asserted it
"operated a network of spies

Destroyed by Fire
By th» Associated Pr««
FRESNO, Calif., Aug. 29—A spec-'
tacular fire, fed by a million and a;
half gallons of alcohol and brandy.'
worth $16,500,000. last night de
stroyed a Government warehouse
for aging liquors about a mile south
of here.
The blaze started on the loading
platform of the Internal Revenue
Bonded Warehouse No. 52. and wind
whipped the flames to the roof.
As the fire burned through the
roof and reached the long rows of
barrels below, explosions spurted
flames rapidly over the warehouse
area of 75,000 square feet.
Firemen from the Army’s Ham-;
mer Field and the Forest Service
fought the blaze for nearly six hours
until it had practically burned itself
out at midnight.
John M. Damron, area gauger for
the Federal Alcohol Tax Unit, said
the tax alone on the spirits when
moved into trade would have been
$9 a gallon. He said owners might
have expected to net $1.60 to $2.50
a gallon.
Officials said the cause of the fire
had not been determined.

Gen. Devers Maps Cuts
In Special Training to
Meet Budget Economy
By Nelson M. Shepard
Gen. Jacob L. Devers was tak
ing stock today of critical econ
omy requirements which may
compel the Army Ground Forces
to slash its special training pro
gram this year and already has
resulted in an order for a 20 per
cent reduction in the number of
civilian employes.
The ultimate fate of the fourfold
program of training maneuvers for
amphibious, mountain, airborne and
Arctic warfare in the face of a dras
tic cut in new appropriations de
pends on the final decision of the
Budget Bureau. In anticipation.
Gen. Devers has set up three alter
nate budget cuts of 10, 20 and 30
per cent in the training program.
To put a 30 per cent cut into ef
fect, he said last night, would neces
sitate the abandonment of all ma
neuvers except one of the two
phases of Arctic training that will
begin this fall.
Civilian Cut Above 32.000.
Figures on the ordered cut in ci
vilian personnel of the Army
Ground Forces were lacking early
today but Brig. Gen. E. L. Harrison,
in charge of Information, said it
would be "greater" than the 3? ,000
reduction authorized last week for
the Army Air Forces. Bulk of the
civilian employes are in the head
quarters and establishments of the
six Army areas into which the
ground forces are divided.
“If we must cut, I am for making
one big cut rather than a lot of little
cuts,” Gen. Devers said in comment
ing on the effect of possible reduc
tions in maneuvers and training.
“If I have to chop off a cat's tail
I am going to cut it right off up at.
the cat, and not in 10 little pieces.”
he added. “You are going to have a
mad cat, anyway, and you might as
well get it over with.”
The ground forces commander
said that “if we take a 10 per cent
cut, we will have to cut short the
current amphibious training of the
Second Infantry Division, now being
held in co-operation with the Armv
Air Forces and the Navy on the
Pacific Coast.”
Under a previous budget cut, this
amphibious training was limited to
two combat regiments, instead of
the entire division.
A 20 per cent reduction would re
quire, in addition, Gen. Devers said,
abandonment of mountain warfare
training of the 3d Regimental Com
bat Command of the 2d Division,
at Camp Carson, Colo.
If a 30 per cent reduction is
directed by the Budget Bureau, he
said it would be necessary to sus
pend maneuvers of the 83d Airborne
Division, and to cancel as well the
winter test program of one of two
special task forces now preparing
for operations in Alaska and the
Aleutians. One of these, known as
‘‘Operation Williwaw” would be
based on Adak, and the other,
"Frigid” would operate out of Fair
The Army Ground Forces origi
nally requested an appropriation of
$16,000,000 for field exercises in
in 1946-7. The Budget Bureau cut
it to $10,000,000 and Congress finally
appropriated $6,151,822 in the cur
rent military supply bill.
May Drop 50,000 Civilians.
Gen. Harrison did not have figures
in hand to tell how the reduction
in civilian employes would affect
the various Army areas and the
Military Department of Washing
ton which is an entity in itself.
However, some have estimated that
perhaps the civilian cuts will run as
high as 45,000 to 50,000.
President Truman's recent direc
tive to the Army and Navy requires
them to absorb the cost of a 14 per
cent pay boost voted to Federal em
ployes and also the cost of pay
raises for military personnel. As
with the AAF, the reductions in
the ground forces will be “across
the board,” including both high and
low salaried personnel. They will
be effected between October 1 and
December 31.
A War Department official ex
plained today that the reduction
program will be continued “no mat
ter whom it hurts.”
