So is the estimate of current Soviet atomic produc- tion two bombs a month. It is also confidently believed that this production rate will not be substan- tially increassd during the yeai 1951 This gives a total Soviet stockpile of 46 bombs by January 1, 1952. The Soviets are, however, now constructing a great new atomic production plant in the Urals. This plant is being built with all the relentless energy of which Lavrentl Beria, secret police chief charged with re- sponsibility for Soviet atomic production, Is capable. It Is ex- pected that it will come toto production at about the begin- ning of 1952. Here the estimates are, natural lv less precise. But it is believed that this new plant should step up the Soviet atomic production rate to between five and seven bombs 1 detention "of aliens seeking to enter f amount to a minimum of just over the United States appeared likely j dent.

This is no doubt what Win- ston Churchill meant when he said in a recent debate in Par- liament, that "the extraordin- ary efforts which the Soviet government are making- to ob- tain even small quantities of uranium seem I only say seem to justify a hopeful view." But as Churchill was quick to point out, hope should not mean complacency. Even if no new Soviet sources are found. '300 bombs will be cnoug-h enough, delivered by surprise with reasonable accu- racy to cripple the American war potential, which is all that stands between the Kremlin and worid domination. Yet as Churchill said, the rate of Soviet atomic production, as esti- mated above, does give us "A con- siderable interval."
