Can Survive Atom War, Expert Says Annihilation Would Mean Peace, Kahn Tells Civil Defense Seminar BY JACK GLASNER Staff Writer x Madison Although the prospects are horrifying, the United States probably could survive a nuclear war, Dr. Herman Kahn, RAND corporation scientist now on a Prince- ton research leave, told a non-military defense seminar here Thursday night. Kahn, commenting on the casualties, continuing radiation damage to human beings and the strategies involved, said the decision to attack could be either Russia's or the United Hits De Gaulle's Algerian Policy Algiers W) Deputy Pierre Firebrand la Gaillarde, leader of an extreme rightist group in Algeria, said today he will try to push a motion through the French National assembly condemning Presi- dent Charles de Gaulle's Al- gerian policy. The bearded former para- troop lieutenant said he is sure of support from at least 54 other deputies, "enough to form a nucleus of opposi- tion." Paris political sources, however, doubted that such a motion could get the signa- States'. If, speculated, the capital for example, he Russia cities of our al- lies, would we push the button to bomb Russia? If we did, Russia would retaliate, and the nuclear war would be on. End Is Comforting Chances of the U. S. being attacked first also leads to the same conclusion wje would retaliate and suffer rel- atively more damage than if Russia had been hit first, Kahn said. There is a view held by many scientific experts and by the military that war means annihilation, the end, Kahn 'said.

At 5 a.m. reconnaissance planes located the hurricane about 250 miles east northeast Chicago The Chicago White Sox led the Los Ange- les_ Dodgers, 2-1, today after five innings of their second game in the World Series. Charlie Neal hit a home run in the fifth inning for the Dodgers' first run of the ser- ies. Proves Porous Los" Angeles' infield defense proved porous, just as in the third inning of Thursday's opening game, and the White Sox pushed over two runs for a 2-0 lead in the first inning. Luis Aparicio led off for Chicago with a double down the first base line and went to third on Nellie Fox's long fly. After Jim Landis walked, second baseman Charlie Neal bobbled Ted Kluszewski's po- tential double play grounder. Although Neal recovered in time to throw out Kluszewski at first, Aparicio scored. Then Sherman Lollar singled, scor- ing Landis. Shortstop Maury AVills fumbled Al Smith's sharp grounder for an error but Podres finally retired the side. With two out in the top half, the Dodgers mustered a mild rally but failed to score. Wal- ly Moon singled to center and went to third when "Duke" Snider singled off Shaw's glove. But Norm Larker flied to right for the third out. Top Play Kluszewski, batting hero of the opening game with two home runs, pulled out of the best fielding plays of the Se- ries to halt a Dodger rally in the second. With Wills on third and Podres on first after suc- cessive singles, and two out, the White Sox first baseman made a diving. tumbling catch of "Junior Gilliam's low line drive outside first base. The White Sox got two on base in the second on Apari- cio's second hit of the game, a sharp single, and a walk to Fox. But Podres struck out Landis. The third inning was quick and scoreless. For the White Sox, after Smith had walked. "Bubba" Phillips grounded out to end the inning. There was no score in the fourth. With two out for the Dodgers, John Roseboro hit, a single to short but failed to advance when Wills popped up. It was the fifth Dodger hit off Shaw. With one out for the White Sox, Shaw punched a single to right, the fourth hit off Podres, but the lefthander retired Aparicio and Fox. The Dodgers scored their first run of the series when Neal, the second baseman, hit his home run into the lower left field stands in the fifth. It was the lone hit of the in- ning on either side. The White Sox went into the game as 6-5 favorites to capture their second straight victory over the Dodgers. After today's contest the two teams head for Sunday's resumption of the series in mammoth Los Angeles colise- um.

Intermittent snow and rain fell for the fifth straight day. At least five deaths were blamed on the savage storm that struck Monday night with mid-winter fury. The latest victim was Earl Lynnock, 34, of Denver. He died of head injuries inflicted by a fall- ing tree limb. Four other men died of heart attacks while clearing debris from their property. Mayor Dick Batterton, who Eugene F. Davis Hunter L. Lake said Denver's into millions, damage runs said nearby Lowry Air Force base has as- signed 50 men and is ready to provide more manpower if needed to help in the city's cleanup. The U.S. Forest Service is bringing in mechanized tree equipment to speed the dis- posal of broken limbs lining almost every street in the city. A half-dozen other cities were in the same plight as Denver. Streets were plugged with broken branches ripped loose as the snow, ranging! from 15 inches at Denver to more than 31 inches at Colo- rado Springs, piled crushing weight on full-leafed trees.

Decision Due V This Afternoon Over Billion In Stock Involved In Anti-Trust Case -MV- The Steel Union Head Appears Pessimistic as TaSks Are Resumed at Pittsburgh J. McDonald, president of the strik- ing United Steehvorkers, expressed pessimism today about a quick end to the nationwide 80-day-old steel strike. As he arrived at a midtown hotel to resume negotiations with the steel industry representatives, McDonald was asked by reporters if he was still as hopeful as he had been yes- terday. The union chief replied: "Well, I'm afraid I'm not hopeful." R. Conrad Cooper, chief industry negotiator, arrived mo- close ments after McDonald Chicago association through s t o c kj declined to comment on Mc- ownership of E. I. du Pont'Donald's statement.

The new weapon was said to be capable of destroying the largest known tank. Lt. Gen. Arthur G. Trudeau, chief of army research, said the weapon, developed at the Frankford arsenal here, was designed for a 2-man team but could be operated by one man. The rifle is effective up to 500 yards, more than twice the range of the 3.5 inch rocket- firing bazooka used in World war II and Korea. The weapon is four feet long and weighs 35 pounds. One man will carry and fire it, said Trudeau, while the sec- ond carries ammunition and loads the weapon. A round of ammunition pounds. weighs nine Cape Canaveral, test version of the navy's Polaris submarine missile disintegrated in a spectacular explosion high over the Atlantic ocean to- day. The sleek, 28-foot missile streaked from its launching pad, trailing its familiar tail of white smoke. About 20 seconds later it erupted with a bright flash. A flam- ing piece of the rocket, ap- parently the second stage, sped upward, then cart- wheeled into the ocean a few miles offshore. Scores of bathers on the nearby beach got a thrill- ing view of the blowup, the second this week for the Polaris.' 16 Cambodians Sentenced to Die Phnom Penh, Cambodia A special military court has condemned 16 persons to death and two. to life impris- onment on charges of plot- ting to overthrow the Cam- bodian government. There is no appeal from the sentences. Three rebel ringleaders were sentenced to death in absentia. The three are Sam Sary, former ambassador to Lon- don; Son Ngoc Thanh, long- time leader of the "Cam- bodge" movement and prime minister during the Japanese occupation; and Chau Bory, former director of industry, mines and handicraft serv- ices. Dock Strike in Full Effect Brooklyn Local's Threat to Return Fails to Materialize New York Port ac- tivity from Maine to Texas was paralyzed today by a strike of union dock workers. A threatened- back-to work movement by a big Brooklyn local failed to materialize. The rebellion apparently was squelched by top union leaders as the vast shipping tieup entered its second day on the Atlantic and gulf coasts. An industry official put Hs cost at million a day. The Brooklyn man local of the International Longshoremen's association is headed by Anthony (Tough Tony) Anastasia and often has been a thorn to top union chiefs. Move Fails Yesterday it voted to oaH off the strike in its territory, possibly as a result of heavy damage suits threatened by employers. When the test came at 8 a.m. today, as cargo handlers reported for the morning "shape up" or call to work at the piers, the only move to- ward usual operations was made by 15 men. They started .0 go to work on a freighter but were quickly withdrawn. It wasn't clear who ordered them back, but a few min- utes later Union President William V. Bradley reported trom his Manhattan headquar- ters that the strike was "100 per cent effective from Maine to Brownsville, Texas." He pointedly noted that this included Brooklyn. Bradley already had issued a stiff notice to lower union leaders that he expected full cooperation in the strike. At the same time he notified Anastasia by telegram that all internal union problems and questions would be threshed out at a meeting of officials !ater today.

Oklahoma City Wi Flash flooding overnight forced the evacuation of scores of families in Oklaho- ma and two deaths were re- ported today. The highway patrol said two persons died when their li-ton truck, loaded with honey, plunged into a flood- ed creek between Ripley and Stillwater. The victims were identified as Tony Jack Wells, 44, and his wife, Beu- lah, 40, of Stillwater. A heavy rain and the swol- len creek prevented the cou- ple from seeing that a por- tion of a bridge on a county road had been washed out, the patrol said. Both appar- ently were killed by the crash, rather than by drowning, the patrol added. Ripley is near the Cimar- ron river 10 miles southeast of Stillwater which was hardest hit by the floods. The national guard was called out there and a plea issued for heavy boats to evacuate families from low- lying areas. The weather bureau said the same flood stricken areas could expect more rain today, some locally heavy. Many rural bridges were washed out and schools were forced to close. Schools were closed at Coyle, five miles east of Guthrie. and at Mulhall, eight miles north of Guth- rie. Stillwater police said the city was hit by an early morning deluge, estimated at five inches in an hour. All surrounding roads were blocked by high water, the highway patrol reported. Highways in the north central area were under water in nearly a dozen places and impassable to traffic. However, with no more rain most of them were expected to reopen within hours.
