For Anniversary Speculation in official quar- ters here is lhat the Red Chi- nese might wish to announce a successful atomic explosion in connection with the anniversary or as a means of impressing the Cairo conference with Chinese progress in nuclear science. Diplomatic officials said that even if the Chinese Reds carry out the first test successfully, it will still be many years before they can develop the stockpile of weapons ana the delivery systems, such 55 airplanes and rockets, necessary to affect the world's nuclear power balance. Tlie first impact, these au- thorities said, would be diplo- matic because many of the Asian nations would undoubted- ly be impressed with Red Chi- na's power potential and some might feel impelled to reassess What Effect? What if any impact a Commu- nist Chinese lest explosion would have on the U. S. presi- dential campaign remained speculative. But the subject of U. S. nuclear weapons policy and various aspects of foreign relations have figured largely in the campaigns of both President Johnson and Arizona Sen. Barry Goldwater.

Officials said the chie; result of the new estimate svas (See TEST, Page 12) :ilcd by two San Antonio serv- 'cemen, requested an order staying the court's ruling until :he case could be appealed and decided by the U.S. Supreme Court.
