U.S. Plans To Detect N-Tests Underwater

The United States is going
underground to detect under-
ground nuclear weapons tests else-
where in the world. Actually, to

Columiba terms the instrument
as being "capable of accomplish-
ing a major breakthrough in de-
tection of underground nuclear
weapons tests.
It will be placed more than two
miles below the surface of the
Pacific at a spot approximately
115 miles south and west of Point
Arena, Calif.
A coaxial submarine cable will
connect it with recording instru-
ments on the shore near Point
Arena, which is about midway be-
tween Cape Mendocino and San

The United States has a num-
ber of ways of checking on above-
ground nuclear tests by other na-
tions. However, underground ex-
plosion - permissible under the
nation's limited test ban with Rus-
sia-are not so readily detected.
Good Site
Maurice Ewing, director of the
Lamont Observatory, said the
bottom of the ocean will provide
a good seismic site because it is
far from man-made noises.
He said also that the ocean it-
self serves as a buffer to shield
the ocean floor from horizontal
stresses of the wind.
Ewing continued, "There are
various seismic methods by which
some improvement in our knowl-
edge and technique for handling
the underground weapon test sur-
veillance problem can be obtained.
"These include use of quiet seis-
niograph locations, improved seis-
mographs, vast seismic arrays. The
ocean-bottom seismograph, how-
ever, is alone in its capability of
making a major breakthrough in
this surveillance problem. It could
provide completely new techniques.
This seismograph is a superb
scientific tool."
Other Tests
Considerable underwater test-
ing has been carried out with less
sophisticated instruments.
The Lamont Observatory will
build, install and operate the Cali-
fornia instrument and monitoring
station under the Navy contract.

For purely scientific study, it
will include devices to measure
variations in the earth's magnetic
field, ocean pressures, sounds,
water temperatures and possibly
ocean bottom currents. These too
would be recorded at the shore
Offers Job
Service Commission is suggesting
an alternative to a House-ap-
proved bill that would make thou-
sands of summer jobs in federal
agencies available to students
across the nation, the Washing-
ton Post reported recently.
Last summer, about 80 per cent
of the estibmated 10,000 jobs were
filled by students from the Wash-
ington area. But a bill introduced
by Rep. Lindley K. Beckworth (D-
Tex) would allot summer jobs to
each state on the basis of its
But, Civil Service Commission
Chairman John W. Macy said that
he feels that a strict apportion-
ment law is not the answer to
"the difficulties experienced by
members of Congress in attempt-
ing to counsel high school and
college stu'dents" who want to
work in Washington in the sum-
Macy suggested instead that a
nation-wide announcement for the
jobs be issued early each year by
the Civil Service Commission. Ap-
plicants would then take an as-
sembled test which would evaluate
reading, verbal and arithmetic
Examinations would be rated,
with points for veterans' perfer-
ence added. All applicants would
be advised of their rating, Macy
The competitors would then be
split into three groups according
to their test scores and govern-
mental agencies would be permit-
ted to select employes from the
high-scoring students in the group
assigned to them.
He said that the principal dif-
ference between this and the
Beckworth bill is that the House-
approved legislation "places pri-
mary emphasis on state of resi-
dence and secondary emphasis on
merit. This proposal places pri~-
mary emphasis on merit regard-
less of state of residence."
