Kingsport utilities reported Only minor damage of the Type normally expected during who heavy wind and rain storm that struck around p. M. Inter Mountain Telephone company officials reported no trouble at registration the storm climaxed a Day of Washington Ameri can nuclear weapon ears whose predictions about the runaway a bomb fired at Bikini missed the Mark by millions of tons of Force propose to go ahead with their schedule for More and mightier blasts this Spring. For those tests of the Spring series which Are thermonuclear or involving Hydrogen bombs they will rely on two things 1. An enlarged danger area and improved warning sys tem. 2. A better estimate of the Force to be unleashed in sub sequent a bomb tests. On the basis of comparisons made by atomic authorities in Congress the March 1 Thermo nuclear explosion appears to have been upwards of 14 Mega tons Energy equivalent to that produced in the explosion of 14 million tons of int. The old atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima had an Energy release of tons or 20 Kilotons. Using information gained from the first exploratory test of a Hydrogen device in the fall of 1952 and adding it to new and intricate computations from Laboratory studies the weapon ears made an initial forecast for the March 1 weapon which was substantially less than half the Force eventually attained. This first estimate was revised upward before the test shot it is understood. But even the revised estimate fell several million tons below the Power scientists now believe was loosed in the explosion. President Eisenhower in an understatement said wednes Day something must have happened that we never experienced before and must have surprised and astonished the scientists. What happened probably not even the nuclear scientists who devised the weapon and supervised its tests know Many of the an Swers yet nor will they until careful analysis of such recordings As could be made of the explosion Are worked out on robot computing machines. A multitude of data including such things As study of the intensity and coloration of Light in the explosion As Meas ured against Millionth second timing must be scrutinized. Then too it seems probable that the scientists will take another look at the Fusio Nable material used in the weapon and its triggering device be fore they predict the Power of the next thermonuclear bomb. The disconcerting and embarrassing thing about the March -1 thermonuclear tests was not the terrific blast there has been no evidence that anyone was injured or killed by the explosion which got out of hand but the erratic and far Flung atomic Cloud that raced outward from the scene. It touched with radioactive Ash the Crew of the japanese fishing Craft Lucky dragon sailing 70 Miles East of Bikini supposedly upwind from the explosion.
