But informed sources said it was not prompted by ahy new fear that potential enemy agents were believed to be about to try to smuggle atomic bombs or other weapons into the country for sabotage purposes. Informed sources said any atom- ic device smuggled into this coun- try would probably be small enough to be carried on the per- son. Be especially the warning said, "regarding any ar- ticle that is extremely heavy for Its size." The alert said that any atomic device must contain uranium or Plutonium, both of which weigh about one and a half times as much as lead. Both of the metals can be coated with plastics or other metals to disguise their appearance and can be machined into any shape. Other necessary parts for any atomic device, the alert said, were either a gun-barrel type device or a high explosive. The FBI warning pointed out that it would be impossible to de- scribe exactly what a foreign atomic bomb would look like.

The House bills included one dis- tributing in-lieti federal taxes at Hoover Dam, two-thirds to the state, and one-third to Mohave County, and another providing that party county chairmen name dep- uty registration officers, raising the number of such officers from two to four in each precinct.

Does The Job A growing city needs this and that; and one of the things it needs is a medium of infor- mation that will spread any word nt ONE SOLID IMPACT. Yuma now has that. Recently a tiny ad in the Daily Sun brought 17 replies before that afternoon; 40 more shortly. Likewise a story in the Daily Sun sold the University's ex- periment farm for S45.000 cash.
