Said No Surprise
Following Soviet Power Shift,
Test Enhances Mao's Stature
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON - Communist China exploded its first
atomic bomb early yesterday morning. The detonation did not
surprise United States officials.
Describing the device as "low-yield," President Lyndon B.
Johnson said the significance of the test "should not be over-
Nevertheless, the explosion, following directly on the heels
of Soviet Premier Nikita S. Khrushchev's ouster from the
Kremlin, raised Chinese Premier Mao Tze-tung's stature in
the Communist world and in the areas of Communist pressure.
And while U.S. experts estimated it will take from four
to 10 years for China to build as many as 30 atomic bombs-

Nepotism aRed China
Newspaper Editors Out; Gromyko,

By The Associated Press.
MOSCOW-The Soviet Communist leadership voted Premier-
Nikita S. Khrushchev out of his top jobs in the Kremlin on charges
that included nepotism and bad tactics in the dispute with Red
China, usually reliable sources revealed yesterday.
Khrushchev fought. the charges, brought in a secret meeting of

A somewhat similar reaction
was expressed by Prof. Hans Mor-

cago, noted authority on inter-
national relations. Morgenthau
said the explosion "will increase
our incentive to come closer to
the Soviet Union, since both of us
are threatened by China as an
atomic power."

Stirs Little
Alarm at 'U
The detonation by Red China
of a "low yield atomic bomb" has
caused little consternation among
University professors.
The prevalent attitude was. best
summed up by Prof. Anatol Rapo-
port of the mathematics depart-
ment and member of' the Center
for Conflict Resolution. He said,
"This event is- of no particular
consequence, nor is it particulat ly
.surprising. we-have been expet-
ing the Red Chinese to develop
some nuclear device."
Rapoport said he doubts the
United States will recognize Red
China despite the latter's en-
trance into the circle of nuclear
powers. "This country is too -hem-
med in by public opinion and
pressure groups," he explained.
Prof. Harold Jacobson of the
political science department :indi-
cated that Red China's successful
detonation "underlines the fact
that the Chinese- will have to be
included in disarmament talks."
He added that "it is difficult
enough to try to reach agreements
with Russia. The addition of Red
China will probably cause further
complications, although no dis-
armament commission has really
excluded the probability of Red
China's nuclear development."
Prof. Alexander Eckstein of the
economics department surmised
that the Red Chinese move is more
"for political status than for miIl-
itary development. I doubt they
will begin an arms program that
will cause a serious diversion of
economic resources from internal
improvements to armaments."
Eckstein said the detonation
would, though, have an effect on
Southeast Asia. "It will strength-
en the Chinese hand in Southeast
Asia and probably cause close'r re-
lationships with the North Viet-
namese, the Viet Cong and Jap-
anese elements who are advocat-
ing closer Chinese-Japanese rela-
All three professors agreed it
was highly unlikely a realignment
of the Communist countries would
occur. "Any realignment would be
due to the change of regime and
not the nuclear weapon," Jacob-
son said.
Rapoport speculated that now
Red Chinese admission to the
United Nations and to the Secur-
ity Council could be "the begin-
ning of concord between the per-
manent members of the Security
Council. It would be a wonderful
opportunity if the permanent
members of the council included
all the nuclear powers."

Grillet Explains New Form
In Conter orar Literature
Associate Editorial Director
"The nouveau roman (new novel) is not a formal school with
conventions established in advance; it reserves the right to invent,"
Alain Robbe-Grillet, a primary exponent of this literary form, said
yesterday at a romance language department lecture.
Grillet is author of "The Voyeur," "Jealousy" and "In the
Labyrinth" and creator of the scenario for the film "Last Year at
,Marienbad." His literary form,
; which departs from all preceding
French literary tradition, emp-
phasizes objects and sense per-
ception and is unconcerned with
the usual components of a novel.
S Discussing the question of real-
ism in the nouveau roman, Grillet
suggested that the form has al-
r , ways been most important. It is
the form which expresses the con-
tent and represents the reality of
the book, he maintained. The
form is essential to realism be-
cause the author wishes to create
reality with precision.
Translate Reality
For a nineteenth century au-
thor such as Balzac, reality was
not a problem; the goal was to
translate the existing world as
realistically as possible.
.N -' To illustrate how the concep-
tion of reality has evolved in the
nouveau roman, Grillet recalled his experience when writing "The

SGC R ejects
Request for
Hatcher Talk
Student Government Council
yesterday rejected a motion re-
questing that University President
Harlan Hatcher appear before the
body at next Wednesday's meet-
ing to clarify the administration's
position on student grievances and
the role of the University as a
community actor.
The SGC meeting was the tra-
ditional Friday afternoon gather-
ing following an election, called
primarily to seat newly-elected
members. Accepted into the body
were Rachel Amado, '67, Robert
Bodkin, '67E and Sharon Man-
ning, '65Ed, all voted into office
in Wednesday's balloting.
Speaking for his motion, SGC
member Barry Bluestone, '66, said
it was important for SGC to have
the opportunity to discuss with
President Hatcher the "apparent
differences in philosophy" be-
tween the administration and the
student body.
Speaking against the motion,
Eugene Won, '66, expressed con-
cern that Bluestone might end up
"raking President Hatcher over
the coals" rather than participat-
ing in meaningful discussion.
Bluestone said he considered
Won's statement a "personal af-
front" and that only through a
direct discussion of the adminis-
tra tion's position would the Presi-
dent's appearance be valuable.

Strong said, however, that the
