ew Bomb
OAK RIDGE, Tcnn Col. K. U.
Nichols, district engineer for Ihe
Clinton Kngineering Works, had
revealed that facilities lor produc
tion of the atomic bomb are al
ready being expanded.
In his first interview since the
military made public its top-drawer
secret, Nichols said that tin- Oak
Eidge plant had been given its pro
duction schedule in 1942 "and
we're right smack on it."
"We were given a job to do." he
said "That job was the develop
ment of explosives for the use in
war We are fulfilling that job
now, and more plants are being
built for the purpose of manufac
turing atomic bombs "
Describing the- development of
the bomb as the "greatest gamble
in history," Nichols expressed the
opinion that it would be worth the
two billion dollars invested be
cause it would "very likely shorten
the Pacific war "
Me disclosed that the Oak Hidge
location was chosen for the bomb
production because of the nearness
of the Tennessee Valley authority
with its unlimited supply of elec
tricity "Since the very first bit of ground
was broken for the project. Dak
Ridge has received top priority lor
literally everything it needed,"
Nichols said.
Nichols said that he was in no
position to speculate on the pos
sible peacetime application of Ihe
newly harnessed energy, hut he
"I trust that it will be kept right
here in the United States."

(Continued from page one)
United States was violating Article
22 of The Hague convention and
showing disregard for humanity by
attacking a non-military city with
the atomic bomb.
Hiroshima actually was an im
portant quartermaster depot and
garrison city for the Japanese
Radio Tokyo said both the dead
and wounded had been burned be
yound recognition and confessed
that authorities still were unable
to obtain a definite check on civil
ian casualties.
"Those outdoors burned to death,
while those indoors were killed by
the indescribable pressure and
heat," Tokyo said. It called the
city a "disastrous ruin."
Seared To Death
"Medical relief agencies that,
were rushed from the neighboring
districts were unable to distinguish,
much less identify, the dead from
the injured," the enemy broadcast
"The impact of the bomb was so
terrific that practically all living
things, human and animals, were
literally seared to death by the tre
mendous heat and pressure en
gendered by the blast.
"With houses and buildings
crushed, including the emergency
medical facilities, the authorities
ire having their hands full in giv
ing every available relief possible
under the circumstances."
Radio Tokyo still referred to the
atomic missile as merely a "new
type bomb." It said order gradual
ly was being restored In the strick
en city
The Japanese cabinet was called
into a special session at the official
residence of Premier Kantaro Su
iuki yesterday morning to hear a
report from Its chief secretary,
Hisatune Sckoinizu. on the raid,
Tokyo said.
Jap Prince Killed
The Japanese imperial household
ministry announced that Prince Rt
Gu, nephew of the head of the for
mer ruling house of Korea, was
killed in the raid, while fulfilling
his duties as a lieutenant-colonel
in the Japanese army.
Gen. Carl A. Spaatz, commander
of the American strategic air forces
in the Pacific, said reconnaissance
photographs revealed that fires
touched off by the almost unbe
lievable heat of the bomb leaped
block-wide streams and spread into
the outskirts.
The city appeared desolate in
the photographs Bridges across
seven channels of the Motoyasu
river delta within the city were
Strangely, the photographs show
ed no crater However, Tokyo had
reported that the bomb was drop
ped by parachute and exploded in
ihe air. It was likely that the en
tire force of the blast was directed
horizontally across the city below.
Think Few Escaped
Although the built-up area of
Hiroshima came to six and nine
tenths square miles, the city as a
whole totalled 12 square miles with
a population of 318,000 an average
of 26,500 persons per square mile.
Few, if any, of the more than
100,000 persons in the totally-devastated
four square miles were be
lieved to have escaped death or in
Juiy The blast alone of the atomic
bomb could kill persons within a
four-mile range .and it was ltkelj
that there were many casualties
outsides the utterly-destroyed sec
tion SpaaU told newsmen that other
Superfortresses were ready to car
ry more atomic bombs to Japan
Leaflets warning the enemy of his
impending doom already were be
ing prepared, he said
Both Spaatz and his chief of
staff, Lt (Jen Curtis Le May,
agreed that if the bomb had been
available in 1943 there "might not
have had to be any D-day" for an
invasion of France.
Spaatz declined comment on the
potentialities of the deapon's use
in the Pacific, but added:
"One of our few fears in Eu
rope was that the Germans would
