IF YOU LIVE WITHIN 12 MILES OF ATOM TARGET.;.
You Have Only 15 Chance Of Staying Alive
WASHINGTON, Feb. 1 -(UP)
Atomic Energy Commissioner
Willard F, Libby painted a grim
picture for congress yesterday of
the death and destruction that
would follow a nuclear explosion
in an American city.
He said modern weapons would
kill 83 per cent of those living
within 12 miles of target zero if
they were in ordinary two story
brick homes. The rest would ; be
seriously injured, he said.
Libby said persons immediate immediately
ly immediately beyond the 12-mile limit would
have more than a minute limit
to duck behind a shelter.
This action, he said might save
their lives and prevent injury from
blast and burns.
Libby opened a House Govern Govern-in
in Govern-in ent Operations subcommittee
hearing on civil defense.
Leaders in science, government,
the military, industry, and labor
are scheduled to testify.
Subcommittee chairman Chet

introduced a bill for Federal mos mosquito

communities would get tielp in"

Strangely enough, mosquitoes
are again becoming a major prob problem,

ated estimated $47,000,000 yearly. This' in includes

Mosquito-borne yellow fever and1

new problems are appearing to
heighten the mosquito menace.
Most serious is encephalitis, a

cropped up of late in western states

breeds in irrigation channels and

Today's hand, illustrating the

from the National Tournament

saw the correct defensive play, j
At one table Harry Fishbein, well

the ace of clubs with the intention
i continuing with the king of clubs
and then getting to his partner's
hand for a club ruff. This, while an
excellent idea, was not quite as
easy as it looked.
Bill Root of Miami played the
deuce of clubs from the East hand
on the first trick. When his partner
nevertheless continued with the
king of clubs, Root stopped to
It was clear that West had
started with the doubleton ace ace-king
king ace-king of clubs. Otherwise, Fishbein
would have led the king of clubs
first and the ace of clubs next.
It was equally clear to Root that
it was up to him to win the third
trick in order to lead another club
for his partner to ruff. Root could
see that his ace of spades could
win the third trick, but the prob problem
lem problem was to convey this information
to his partner.
Root solved the problem by drop dropping
ping dropping the queen of clubs on his
partner's king! The play of this
unnecessarily high card indicated
that Root's fiide entry was in a
high suit rather than in a low suit.
In other words, Root had his entry
in spades rather than in diamonds.
Fishbein naturally read the mes message
sage message with ease. At the third trick
he led a spade, and Root won with
the ace. Root thereupon returned
a third round of clubs for Fishbein

these tables, therefore, west lea a

From the moment George Monaghan was put in charge of
the trots as a hlgh-ealaried, full-time commissioner, it was only
a question of days before the flats got to thinking along the
lame lines, . ..
Or rather, .the politicians who handle Albany patronage.
It's ridiculous to encourage any kind of volunteer work that
keeps one of the faithful out of a good paying job. Monaghan
has show what a real pro can do. It follows, then, that the
flats need a pro, too.
s Anyway, that's the line the vote hustlers and plum pluck pluck-ers
ers pluck-ers have been taking. Cole's term still has until 1956 to go.
On the whole, he has rendered racing a fine and faithful
service. Whether the politicians will let him finish his labor-for-love
activities is to be doubted. They want the office for
a loyal party follower who isn't allergic to pay.

it gives some reminders to those

You can change your method
of computation from itemized de

For example suppose your

You should itemize and claim the
$611 deductions. Suppose also
that year or two later you or
a revenue agent discovers that an
additional $1,000 should have been
reported as income in 1955.
This would increase your stand standard
