iiscnhower this country now can iroducc a hydrogen bomb approx matcly 95 per cent free of radio iclivo fallout Three University of California physicists visiting the President with Chairman Lewis L Strauss of tho Atomic Energy Commis sion reported the progress on producing a clean Hbomb Strauss toid reporters that strides have been made sinoi lime 5 when Eisenhower reported hat fallout had been reduced by ninetenths from that of earliest By the time he made that statement we had gone about halt the wayto tentenths Strausi said The scientists all obviously with Strauss as spoke They wcro Dr Ernest 0 Lawrence Dr Mark M Mills and Dr Edward Teller all of tins University of California Radia tion Laboratory At one point when asked wheth er it now is possible to make clean Hbomb nodded N But later when the question svas put on the basis of whether this country now is actually mak ing clean fusion weapons intervened saying the question should not be answered 4or ity reasons Strauss also cut off a question to Dr a raora loriiim on nuclear weapons test ng would hamper progress toward producing weapons which would not harm civilian popula tions through fnllout The question should not be answered the AEC chairman said because it might hinder disarmament nosv in progress One of the arguments that been made for a halt to weaponj testing is that accumulated fall dyst and parti cles driftingover the world might rise lo the point where it was causing bone gancer and ef feeling genetic changes No Large Some experts contend there art dangers from the radioactivity already released But the three scientistsaccompanying Strausii to the White House were em phatfc instaling thatall the H bomb tests to date have produced harmless and negligible quan titiesof radioactivity Teller safd they informed President solely about technical developments without discussing policy questions such as discon tinuance of testing or disarma ment The scientists also Teller said told Eisenhower what we and plan to accomplish in coming year if we continue work He would not elaborate on last phrase even when asked whether the if meant if tht tests are not discontinued Francis H Shepard Noted
