pres ent assistant chief of naval opera tions for reinstatement of the navys thwarted plans to build a flushdesk superaircraft carrier Halseys general argument was that the need in event of war will be for fast planes which can har rassan enemys armies knock out bridges and disrupt his transport He said that bypassing the armies and hammering at urban centers far to the reaY would not stop an army If military history shows one thing Halsey said it is this Siege operations have never suc ceeded against an enemy while that enemy possessed troops in the field which could attack the be sieging forces Siege Operation Bombing cities and the navy says that is all the B36 could essentially a siege operation Halsey said King said that any war or peace plans that deprive the navy of its fighting

of the council did not answer Malik on the floor But immediately aft er the meeting he told newsmen A census of weapons without verification is meaningless This is another attempt to fool the pub lic Nothing New The proposal for the addition of atomic bombs to the census adds nothing new Austin said It continues to reflect an unwill ingness on the part of the Soviet Union to recognize the real nature of the atomic problem The Russian proposal was not acted on and Malik refused to go into detail on it when he spoke to newsmen after the meeting Malik was directly asked if Rus sia has atomic weapons He answered Read the Tass communication That soviet press agency said on Sept 25 that the Russians have atomic weapons at their disposal The agency statement followed disclosure by President
