Winona Republican-Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 2, 1949, Winona, Minnesota LIGHT SNOW TONIGHT, SATURDAY GIVE TO THE GOOD FELLOWS VOLUME 49, NO. 244 WINONA, MINNESOTA, FRIDAY EVENING, DECEMBER 2, 1949 FIVE CENTS PER COPY New Bomb Could Wipe OirtCity By Joseph and Stewart Alsop was altogeth- er too much comedy in the re- cent incident of Senator Edwin C. Johnson and the power atomic bomb. Here is a pompous lawmaker, pleading with the tele- vision audience for more secrecy In American atomic development. And in the midst of his bumb- ling discourse, the senator com- mits the worst violation of secur- ity rules that has occurred to date. He discloses, in fact, that the Atomic Energy commission is working hard to devise an atomic weapon times more powerful than the bomb that fell on Hiro- shima. With the senatorial foot thus securely fixed in the capa- cious senatorial mouth, the curtain quickly descends, and the audience dissolves into roars of happy laughter. Yet there was more to this inci- dent than a mere comedy turn by a third rate senator. Everyone should understand, in the first place, that a power atomic bomb Is more than a simple pos- sibility. In the long run, such a bomb is a probability, If not a certainty, ITS EXPLOSIVE POWER will derive from the nuclear fission of hydrogen, the lowest of the ele- ments in the electron table, in- stead of uranium, at the top. Thej theory of how to make it Is al-j ready understood and generally! accepted. Making It will require! Immense efforts, yet the Job is) actually farther along than was thej job of making the Hiroshima bomb when the Manhattan district was established. Furthermore. Senator Johnson's estimate of the probable power of the new bomb is also generally accepted. It is the rule that the area devastated by an explosive] increases in approximate ratio to the square root of the Increase In the explosive's power. A Hiroshi- ma bomb devastates an urea of from two to four square miles. When constructed, the bomb will therefore devastate an area a little more than thirty times as large, or from 60 to 100 square miles. In short, only one hydrogen fis- sion-bomb will be enough to des- troy, utterly and completely, al- sation law. great city on earth. 26 Hospitalized in Ohio Fire Snyder Pleads For Balanced udgef NOW Asks Spending Cut, Maintenance of Adequate Tax Rates By Charles Molony Washington Secretary of Dakota Woman Cites Larson Threat to Get Even With McLoone State Attorney General's Office Sends Assistant La Crossc, Wis.
