The annual icebreakers race in March starts another season of shipping on the Seaway and the Great Lakes From the GuU of St Lawrence the powerful boats inch their way upriver to Montreal Meanwhile other ice breakers perform the same task on the Great Lakes Residents along the St Lawr ence River pay close attention to the race Newspapers publish daily reports of ships progress and gamblers offer odds on the exact time the first icebreaker will reach Montreal In the past few years the boats have been arriving in the first week of April IRONICALLY while man is able to conquer the rapids of the St Lawrence River the uneven water levels of the Great Lakes and transform inland cities into seaports he has yet to find a practical way of preventing the vital waterway from freezing Engineers are

Murray again urged resumption of nuclear tests the former AEC head said The new weapon will not be a larger and more efficient H bomb nor a smaller and more efficient Abomb It is primarily antipersonnel in destination anc effect And it need not create suicidal hazards for the country that employs it MURRAY ALSO said I take it for granted the Soviet Union is developing nuclear technol ogy along this revolutionary line In Washington some unidenti fied nuclear physicists specu lated that Murray was talking about what has been called a neutron bomb a weapon that would actually be a small mobile nuclear reactor and a juniorsized version of reactors already used to propel submar ines and to generate electricity The AEC refused to comment on the statement by Murray who headed the commission from 1950 until 1957 IN CHICAGO Thursday night nuclear physicist said Mur refers to the two different sizes of which on the drawing boards have been openly re ferred to as dove and star ling David R Inglis Argonne Na tional Laboratory physicist and past chairman of the Federa ion of American Scientists add This is not fantastically different from present weapons as he Murray claims It is not a third generation beyond the Hbomb but merely a scaling down of the Abomb to a low efficiency to make it give out more neutron radiation than blast damage It is of dubious military value because many of its vic tims on the battlefield will be condemned to die of radiation sickness on following days and can afford to be very brave in the meantime ray doubtless neutron bomb N ews in a
