lagoon today, said yesterday’s bomb proved it is a "killer” of ships within a half-mile radius -the same radius of “sudden death" in the July air burst test as well as of the death circle imprinted on the New Mexico sands last year.
In the two Bikini tests, no ship within that radius has survived and the power of the bomb has extended beyond it.
The radioactivity within the lagoon bars a thorough check, but it is definitely known that yesterday’s thunderous explosion accounted for the Arkansas, the Saratoga, a concrete yard oiler, a tank landing ship and the medium landing ship from which tla* bomb was suspended.
Aerial observers had said positions of buoy^ indicated that five of the submarines submerged for the test were sunk but Admiral Blandy said today the evidence was inclusive.
Blandy said that, had the ships been manned yesterday, in addition to loss of life on the decks it is highly probable that many of those below decks would have been injured by "the physical

Suddenly Unable To Talk, Doctor Says Is Heart Attack
Files Brough! to Committee Showing Gorsson Once Very Friendly with Copone
By AI.KX ll. SINGLETON
i WASHINGTON, July 26. (ZP)
A formal medical explanation of Hep. May s (I) Ky.) sudden illness was sought by the senate war investigating committee today. He failed to appear to testify on his wartime activities in behalf of a midwest munitions combine under investigation.
Chairman Mead (D.-N.Y.) said that Dr. Henry Lowden, physician for the ailing and absent Kentucky legislator, would be asked to product* a medical certificate attesting the nature of the illness and furnish additional details orally in a private session.
Attorney Warren Magee, counsel for the 71 year-old chairman of the house military committee, informed the committee that Dr. Lowden is w illing to appear. He said the doctor had told nim that May s condition would bar his testifying for at least a week.
Magee said May’s daughter told him last night her father had had a heart attack.
C ommittee Is Persistent
Left tentatively unsettled, Mead said in reply to questions from newsmen, are these decisions:
1. Whether to send a physician of the committee's choosing to May s bedside to cheek upon his condition.
2. Whether to submit a series of questions for May to answer at home in the event his illness protracted.
At the request of Senator Ferguson (R.-Mich ) the committee placed in its record files from the labor department pertaining to Murray Garsson, one of the promoters of the munitions combine to which May s name had been linked by previous testimony.
Garsson was formerly an investigator for the department, and committee records showed that he was removed bv Secretary Perkins.

Ruuia Will Open Debate On Atom Plan

Rejects U. S. Bion, Which Ho* Strong Support; Will Offer Own Proposal
By MAX ll A It It El,KON
NKW YORK, July 26 i/p) Soviet Russia, in the face of overwhelming opposition, prepared today to seek a showdown on her proposal for an international convention outlawing the production and use of atomic weapon*-'.
Soviet Delegate Andrei A. Gromyko, who two days ago rejected the key points of the U. S. atomic control plan, was scheduled to open debate on his own proposal before a committee of the United Nations atomic energy commission.
'Hie Russian plan already has been discussed both formally and informally by the 12 delegates and so far has been suported only bv Poland. It appeared, therefore, that the J roposal had little or no chance of approval.
Majority With IT. S.
A majority of Jhe delegates, led by the United States, have taken the position that a strong system of controls must be established before the United States could be expected to give up her advantage as the only nation known to have atomic bombs.
Gromyko, has continued to stick to his own plan and, at bis request, it was placed on the agenda of atomic commission committee No. 2. which is charged with the task of drafting an atomic control plan.
Let Gromkyo Carry Ball
A ll. S. spokesman, emphasizing that the American delegation had in no way changed its position as a result of Gromyko’s opposition to the Baruch plan, said: "We w ill now let Gromyko carry the ball for a while and listen to what all the delegates have to say about his proposals,**
The Russian plan provides that:
Atomic weapons should In* out lawed by an international convention.
Each nation should be responsible for seeing that the convention is not violated by production of atomic weapons within its borders.
The security council should be charged w ith the punishment of nations who violate the treaty's provisions.
The exchange of scientific information on a t o rn i c energy should be carried on by a corn-, mittee of the atomic commission, j

HENRYETTA, July 26.— (ZP)— An army band from Fourth army
Pill] )^’ac^cluar4ers. Fort Sam Houston, Tex., will be flown to Henryetta to participate in the American Lemon district convention Aug. 3-4. Po t ( ommander Leon Ginsberg VV. advised by Gen. Jonathan VV ainwright.
The convention will feature a • I bai becut*, a parade and addresses bv Lh Gen. Raymond S. McLain I and Congressman W. G. Stigler.

ley W. Shawcross, who declared the prisoners were guilty of "12,-000,000 murders.”
He declared they participated in and directed "the cold. calculated, deliberate attempt to destroy nations and races, to disintegrate the traditions, the institutions and the very existence of free and ancient states through rnurdei conducted like some mass production industry in the gas chambers and th** ovens” of death camps.
For tho first time in several months, thor hardly was an emp-■ ty scat in the courtroom.
Rudolf Hess, the third ranking I Gel luau before he parachuted
into Scotland and started his incredible insanity hoax, was the only defendant missing beside Martin Bormann. tried in absentia but often termed dead.
Goering, Raeder In Fuss Once when Jackson was relating how the German army, navy and air force grew, paunchy Hermann Goering and Grand Adm. Erich Raede. started a heated argument that military police had to break up.
AII the defendants except Ernst Kaltonbi tinner, once head of the secret police, seemed to enjoy Jacksons biting remarks. Even In* grinned widely when Jackson described hi. defense as that of a “security chief who was of the impression that the policing functions of his gestapos were some-! what on the order of directing ; traffic.”
Franz Von Papen, the wily old diplomatic schemer, shook his head sadly when Jackson said he was one of the men who made Hitler believe in the "indecision and timidity of dcmocartic people." Papen had boon chancellor I before Hitler took power. He lis-} toned intently without earphones.
Seyss-Inquart Dozes Julius Streicher, tile anti-semet-ic publisher, paid little attention. Arthur Seyss - Inquart. Hitler’s ruler in Holland and earlier in Austria, appeared to doze several i tunes.
Most defendants appeared t*» enjoy Jackson’s remarks about the fortunes in art treasures which Goering looted. The former roil hsmarshal just shook his head as if he were a man amazed.
Other defendants, whose very lives were in the balance, were former Foreign Minister Joachim Von Ribbentrop: Field Marshal Wilhelm Keitel; Col. Gen. Alfred Jodi; Grand Adm. Karl Docnitz; Hialmar Schacht, former econo lilies minister and reichsbank president; Walthcr Funk, Srhacht’s successor; Alfred Rosen berg, nazi party philosopher; I Lins Frank, occupation governor of Poland; Wilhelm Fuck, munster of the interior, Constantin Von Neurath, former ‘‘protector” of Bohemia and Moravia; SS Gen. Fritz Sauckel; Munitions Minister Albert Speer; Propagandist Hans Fritsche; and Youth leader Baidar V on Schiiach.
Goering Next to Hitler Goering. "half militarist and half gangster,” was. “next to Hit lei*, the man who tied the activi ties of all the defendants together rn a common effort,” Jackson said,
“The parts played by the other defendants, although less comprehensive and less spectacular than that of the reichsmai shal, were nevertheless integral and necessary contributions to the joint i undertaking.'’

Dismissing with irony th** "al most unanimous" defense of the group that "nobody knew any thing about what was going on,” th** chief American prosecutor said “they all speak wit!) a nazi double talk."
