eventual control of the a re jection would further harden the EastWest deadlock on this issue Fresh From Conference Eisenhower fresh from the Ber muda conference where he got the backing of Prime Minister Churchill and French Premier Laniel for his action told the UN General Assembly late Tuesday the United States was ready to join immediately in secret talks on setting up an international atomic energy agency to which qualified nations would contribute atomic material for peaceful pur poses i But he said Russia would have of the participating na tions He did not name other na tions but was learned he con siders Britain which produces atomic materials and Australia SouthAfrica Canada which produce uranuim the raw material also should be ificiuded The revolutionary nature the

Nations General Assembly Tuesdayafternoon The sentence bombs today are more than 25 times as powerful as weapons with which the atomic age dawned while hydrogen weapons are in the ranges of millions of tons of TNTequivalent In subsequent paragraphs the President gave the world for first time an orderofmagnitude statement onthe sue of Americas atomic arsenal revealed that this country has enough nuclear might to lay waste an entire aggressor nation and confirmed that ill branches of the US military can now wage atomic war He also implied that Russia may have exploded1 more than test Hbomb and

maximum benefit of the greatest possible number of nations For example the agency could estab lish a plant to furnish atomic power in some area without ade quate pWer resources The apparent belief of American officials is that if the free nations and Russia could cooperate in such an undertaking learning to work together in so complicated and delicate a field they might gain mutual confidence
