THE ADA EVENING NEWS  BUY MORE WAR BONDS  Navy Announces Its Plans for Gigantic Atomic Bomb Tests  Vast Operation Starts in May, Using 97 'Guinea Pig' Warships from Battleships, Carriers to Small Craft  By WILLIAM A. KINNEY  WASHINGTON, Jan. 24.—(AP)—The navy raised the cui lain today on its plans for testing the atomic bomb against a great armada of fighting ships—an experiment expected to revolutionize sea warfare.  A guinea pig fleet of 97 vessels, ranging from carriers and battleships, submarines and transports to an assortment of smaller craft such as landing ships, will be the atomic target in the vast operation to start in May.  7 The laboratory selected is the  J.- *D    anchorage of Bikini Atoll, one of  |    Bk    Tno vtAvfhvw.a —.a? ai  ■» * _  'Far Away f   Bikini Atoll Long Way From Anywhere, Native Dwellers to Be Cared For  WASHINGTON, Jan.. 24, (JU— Bikini Atoll, the site picked for the atomic bomb test on naval vessels, is a long way from almost anywhere.  It lies 170 miles from the Marshall Islands of Eniwetok and Kwajalein, which most people never heard of until they became scenes of battle in the Pacific campaign against the Japanese.  Its distances from better known places include Guam. 1.573 miles; Honolulu, 2,096; San Francisco, 4.150; Truk, 1,060; Yokohama, 2,-442.  The Coral Atoll is 21 1/2 miies long and consists of more than a score of tiny Islands. The native dwellers number only 161. The navy announcement of the tomb test said “adequate measurers” would be taken to insure their safety.  The Atoll Lagoons are shallow, averaging about 20 fathoms. The best anchorage, near the main Island of Bikini, is 1.400 yards from the beach and ll fathoms deep.  the northernmost of the Marshall islands which were wrested from Japan by amphibious assault two years ago.  Vice Adm. W. H. P. Blandy, head of the navy’s division on special weapons, ticked off for the senate atomic energy committee these details of the epochal experiment, known by the codeword “operation crossroads”:  1. In the target fleet will be 50 operating ships—two aircraft carriers, four battleships, two cruisers, 16 destroyers, eight submarines and 15 transports from U. S. fleets, plus a German heavy cruiser, a Japanese battleship and light cruiser—and 47 of other craft such as landing ships.  2.

One of the pair, a 17-year-old Shawnee, Okla., youth, was apprehended early this morning and was held in jail here.  A posse, headed by Sheriff Ben Geren of Sebastian county, trailed the other man, who was said to be traveling on foot.  The slaying victim was* Raymond Morris. 40, city alderman of Mena and operator of the City Drug Store there.  Sheriff Geren said Morris was working late in his store when the pair entered, shot him and rifled the cash register. G^ren reported the men took Morris’ car, robbed the Cagle filling station at Mena and drove north to a spot near Waldron where they wrecked the car. He said they abducted Sherman Caver, former state policeman now living at Waldron, took his truck and left him bound in the cab after it was wrecked five miles soutn of Waldron.  Geren said the men tater entered a farmhouse occupied tv Delbert Blair, abducted Blair and drove 15 miles north of Waldron in his automobile.  The sheriff said they wrecked Blairs car and stole another from an unidentified farmer after taking shotguns and ammunition from his house. Blair said.  One of the pair was captured this morning, the sheriff said,  ^ hen they ran into a police road block on Highway 71, five miles south of Fort Smith.    VJ/ti -  atiun. but rather a scientific experiment by the United States government alone.” The question of permitting foreign observers has not yet been decided. «  3 \, T , he  unmanned target ships will be anchored and placed in a manner calculated to give effects varying from probable destruction to negligible damage” rn each type.    *  Burst Above Surface First  4. The first test, early in May, calls for detonating an atomic bomb at an altitude of several hundred feet above the target vessels. A second test, tentatively set for July I, will be an atomic burst at the water’s surface in the target area.  5. A deep water test in the open sea is planned later, but technical difficulties preclude its coming off this year.  ca 6 * ‘^ a * k force  one”—a fleet of 50 additional U. S. navy ships with a cimplement of 20,000 men will set up the experiment and make arrangements for record- in f> its. results by all modern scientific techniques.  Veteran Warships Named Blandy, w-ho has been named commander for the entire test by the joint chiefs of staff, revealed  Schedules ta Ba Mat By Return of 500,000 Batara July I  WASHINGTON, Jan. 24.—(ZP) —An army staff officer told the senate war investigating committee today that all demobilization schedules for soldiers in the Pacific will be met by return oi 1  Norrie 500,000 GI’s before July I.  “General MacArthur has concurred fully and assured that General Eisenhower’s demobili-zat,on plans, will be carried out,* Col. Russell F. Eakers, of the war department personnel staff, told senators.  The demobilization promise came as the special senate committee resumed an inquiry into idle shipping in the Pacific. The public hearing brought these developments:  , ?*  A  report that more than 60 snips, idle in the Pacific since V-J day and loaded in part with wilding materials and construction equipment, have been directed to return to this country: Salvage Loss High  mrj /T^S& ate by  Chairman Mead (D-NY) that taxpayers may lose some $10,000,000,000 in salvage of war surpluses;  3.

This new tack developed as several senators and representatives advocated speedy abolition or modification of present laws giving tax rebates to corporations whose 1945 profits drop below pre-war levels.  Sponsors of this plan, including one congressman with reported White House backing, disclosed a program for frequent floor speeches defending labor and criticizing employers for their position in present strikes.  Presidential support was claimed for a house address in which Rep. Biemiller (D-Wis) farted earlier in the week that the U. S. Steel company would have “made money” if it had accepted the wage compnfcnise ad-vanced by President Truman.  Biemiller along with other close friends of organized labor, plan to launch a series of similar speeches in the house.
