WASHINGTON - d)-Two de-
fense moves to guard the United
States against sneak aerial attack
and to develop long-range missiles
for counter-attack won unanimous
approval in the House yesterday.
By voice vote, the lawmakers
passed and sent to the Senate:
1. A BILL authorizing the Air
Force to set up a "radar fence"
to warn of the approach of enemy
2. A measure approving con-
struction of a 3,000-mile range
for testing guided missiles.
Military witnesses have testified
that robot missiles capable of tra-
veling 500 miles will be ready for
testing this year. This compares
with the wartime German V-2's
record of about 250 miles.
At the outset, the bills would
limit expenditures to $85,500,000
for the radar warning system and
$70,000,000 for the missiles range.
Ultimately, the radar net is ex-
pected to cost $161,000,000 and the
rocket-test range about $200,000,-

in student seminars by Kiyochi Tanimoto and Dr. Eldred V. Thiehoff

The citizens of Hiroshima do not blame the United States for
dropping the atomic bomb, but consider the catastrophe a result
of divine judgment, Kiyoshi Tanimoto said yesterday in a talk entitled.

TANIMOTO, who as pastor of
the Hiroshima Methodist Church
was within a mile of the center
of the explosion, explained that
the people feel they suffered be-
cause of a lack of faith in God.
"The Japanese people believe
their leaders who started the
war are to blame," he said. "We
don't condemn you. We killed
you so you killed us. If we had
the bomb we would have drop-
ped it on you."
Tanimoto told how his wife and
child managed to climb out of
the parsonage after it collapsed.
"Out of seven children in the
neighborhood, mine was the only
one saved," he said.

Nine days later, when, the em-

with a portable loud speaker, aired,
his case for more than two hours.
Braving intermittent sn'ow and
drizzles, the former Michigan
State student who was refused re-
admittance by State officials in
January was the center of a heat-
ed debate among students going
to and from classes.
"MY PURPOSE in appearing
here is to present the facts of my
case to the students. I am sure
that many will write to President
Hannah asking for my re-admis-
sion," he said.
When questioned about his
party allegiance, Zarichny said
that he holds a membership
card in th Communist party.
"I refused to tell the Callahan
Committee of my affiliation be-
cause the admission would have
violated the principles of the se-
cret ballot. But I don't hestitate
to reveal it now," he said.
ZARICHNY ASSERTED that he
would fight for the United States
if it were attacked by any other
power. However," when asked what
he would do if the United States
signed the Atlantic Pact tomorrow
and Russia invaded Norway at the
same time, he said, "I can't an-

One of the University's most

of this institution.
The Clinic, founded in 1940,
centers its work on organizing
previous studies and pioneering in
new research on human heredity,
according to its instigator and di-
rector, Dr. Lee R. Dick, first
speaker in a symposium at Rack-
which include projects for the
American Cancer Society, Public
Health studies and field trips, the'
Clinic also performs the needed
function of advancing prospective
parents on heredity transmission
or adoption of children.
MUCH ADVICE is also meted
out on the possibility of trans-
mitting constitutional weaknesses.

from severe, clear-cut hereditary
disease," according to Dr. Harold
