Argentine Claims
Atom Discovery
Peron Boasts Country's H-Bomb
Research, Production Superiority
BUENOS AIRES - (I) -- Argentina scientists have produced
Atomic energy by a new method much cheaper than the usual
processes and are investigating problems of the hydrogen bomb,
Sesident Juan Peron announced yesterday.
He said the atomic energy will be developed on a big scale and
P arnessed exclusively for industrial use.
IMPLYING ARGENTINE leadership in hydrogen bomb research,
Ie said the study of solar reactions by a new type apparatus called the
thremotron show foreign scientists are "still far from their goal,"
t least on the basis of what they have published.

-tom Claim
tdp-ranking American Scientists
yesterday doubted President Per-
on's claim that Argentina has
rfected a new way of releasing
"controlled" atomic energy on a
1rge scale.
They are Urna Lidel, chief nuc-
ear physicist of the Office o
'aval Research; Ralph Lapp, for-
merly of that office; and Georg
.Gmow, one of the first scientist
to envision the possibilities of a
TIydrogen Bomb.
* * *
PRESIDENT Peron of Argen-
tina has claimed his scientists
have developed a new wrinkle for
producing "controlled" atomic en-
ergy of utilizing "thermo-nuclear
r'action" like those going on in
the sun.
It is this type of reaction that
would be used in the proposed
American Hydrogen Bomb, uti-
4izing an A-Bomb as a trigger
to produce the sun-like temper.
atures estimated as high as
-4200 million degrees.
Lidel told a reporter that even
i~the H-Bomb is perfected, it is
"mprobable that the thermo-
nuclear reaction could be used for
the "controlled" release of atomic
energy for pratcical, peace-time
purposes on any scale other than
d laboratory one.
* * *
LAPP VOICED even a stronger
'iew: .
"There is no controllable fea-
ture in the Hydrogen Bomb
type of reaction," he said. "To
;sustain such a reaction, you'd
have to maintain a temperature
.f at least 100 million degrees,
and to do that you'd have to
Keep exploding A-Bombs."
Scoffing at the Argentina re-
uprt, at least on the evidence pre-
stnted so far, Lapp said: "I'm
surprised the Soviet haven't pulled
tiatf one. Maybe they (Argen-
tina) are trying it on for size."
Gamow declared that on the
tidence so far presented, the Ar-
gentina report now struck him
like "advertising without grounds."
He said it was conceivable that
the Argentinian might have de-
vploped a new method for releas-
ing atomic energy on a "niicro-
seopic" laboratory scale. But he
alded that it is another thing to
do it on a pratcical scale.

ha etor Stlt
Against Ford
Starts Monday
Foley Square will be the scene of
action for Irish tractor-maker
1arry Ferguson's $342.6 million
showdown battle with the Ford
Motor Company starting tomor-
row. "
Setting for many a famous trial
s&pce the end of the war, Foley
Square and the Federal district
courthouse have seen everything
fkm Communists on parade to
big league gangsters.
'ACCORDING to a spokesman
for Ferguson, t h e complaint
against Ford is the "largest civil
l1wsuit ever tried in the United
States," noching startling for the
historic square.
The present lawsuit price fig-
ure, formerly set at $251,000,000,'

ergy is "transcendental for the
future life of Argentina and I
do not doubt of the entire
world," Peron said.
He made the announcement at
a news conference limited to Ar-
gentine newsmen normally sta-
;ioned at his palace, the Rose
House. Foreign correspondents
were excluded.
e A stenographic report was made
s public later.
- Argentine scientists obtained
s "the controlled release of atomic
g energy" through "thermonuclear
a reactions" Feb. 16 at a government
pilot plant on Huemul Island at
- San Carlos de Bariloche, the pres-
f ident said in a prepared state-
- ment.
e* * * .
s AUSTRIAN-BORN Ronald Rich-
ter, 42, one of scores of European,
scientists and technicians who
came to Argentina after World
- War II, was introduced as the cre-1
s ator of the Argentine system.
S Richter told the newsmen,
"For some time Argentina has
r known the secret of the hydro-
gen bomb but in spite of, this
knowledge the president never
asked that hydrogen bombs be
developed. On the contrary, I
have always found a refusal on
Peron's part to make use of this
secret." /
Anerican scientists and perhaps
others also know the secret of the
11-bomb, which theoretically would
s be many times more powerful than
-the atom bomb. The trick is how
r to put it together so it will work.
The scientist, a tall, blond grad-
uate of the University of Prague,
a used the word explosion in refer-
ring to the experiments but speci-
fied that it was not like an atom-
r bomb blast.

Meat Strike
Averted by
Negotiators Wait
Action by Board
threat of an imediate meat-pack-
ing strike was lifted off the sagging
shoulders of the Government's
high commanders yesterday as
they held an important meeting at
the White House on the future of
the controls program.
At Chicago, the CIO Packing-
houes Workers announced an ex-
tension to May 7 of their tentative
wage agreement with the major
meat-packing firms. It was due to
expire today and a strike had been
threatened for tomorow. AFL and
independent unions made a similar
extension Friday.
companies have agreed on a wage
raise of 11 cents an hour, subject
to approval of the government.
Economic stabilizer Eric Johnston
has refused to allow more than 3
cents of the increase becase the
other 8 cents would breach the
present wage control formula of
10 percent above the level of Jan.
15, 1950.
The meat unions and the com-
panies hope that before May 7
Johnston will have succeeded in
setting up a new Wage Stabiliza-
tion Board, which would decide
whether to grant more than 3
cents in their case.
Johnston attended yesterday's
White House meeting.
So did Defense Mobilizer Charles
Wilson and his general counsel,
Herbert Bergson.
And so did Attorney General J.
Howard MGrath, his top assistant,
Pey ton Ford, and Solicitor General
Philip Perlman.
Everybody was close-mouthed
about the meeting.
'I * * *
PERHAPS the most urgent im-
mediate question of interpreting
the law is whether a formal, public
labor-management conference
must be held .before the Wage.
Stabilization Board can be given
power to settle labor-management
Johnston, who has held many
conferences with union and man-
agement men during the last four
weeks, has taken the position that
an agreement reached in such con-
ferences would satisfy the provi-
sions of the law.

Referees Fix
Cage Games,
Big Ten Involved,
Crime Quiz Told
WASHINGTON-(A')-A $1,000,-
000-a-year bettor testified yester-
day that "three, four or five" still-
active basketball referees are be-
lieved in gambling circles to be in-
volved in fixing college games.
The self-described professional
gambler, Sidney Brodson, of Mil-,
waukee, also said he felt "some-
thing was abnormal" about Madi-
son Square Garden games long
before the bribery scandal de-
veloped there.

BRODSON, slender, smooth-
talking former lawyer, testified be-
for the Senate crime-investigating
He wasn't asked for and sup-
posedly didn't give the names of
the referees he suspected of be-
ing approachable by fixers.
However, he said at least one is
in the midwestern Big Ten con-
ference and another in the East's
Ivy League.
But the Milwaukee Journal said
Brodson gave the committee names
of teams, players and officials.
said, "these officials are still ref-
ereeing." He referred to the Big
Ten in this somewhat tangled sen-
tence: I-'
"There was one instance in the
Big Ten where, when one par-
ticular referee referees the
games, almost the same situation
as took place in the Garden
Big Ten leaders "know about
this case," he added.
IN NEW YORK Knneth "Tug"
Wilson, commissioner of the Big
Ten, said:
"In my opinion the integrity of
our officials is beyond suspicion.
We have about 35 officials on
call but none of them is a pro-
fessional refree. They have their
regular work and the officiating
is a sideline. If Brodson has any
definite information I will be
glad to receive it."
Brodson faced the Senators,
microphones and newsreel and
television cameras after another
witness had told of helping get
two Kansas City gangsters out of
jail at the suggestion of a well-
known Kansas City doctor.

Pliane with
53, Aboard
Still Missing
-(P)-Recovery of an airforce-
type valise yesterday swung fleets
of ships and planes toward a new
sector of the Atlantic in search of
the U.S. Airforce Globemaster,
missing since early Friday with
53 persons aboard.
The valise was picked up by the
international weather ship Char-
lie at 1:30 p.m. 630 miles south-
west of Shannon.- The Charlie was
one of two weather ships which
had previously been sent to an
area 500 miles west of Ireland fol-
lowing reports early yesterday
that flares, wreckage and life-
rafts had been sighted.
* * *
THE VALISE was the first ob-
ject taken from the water as ai
possible clue to the whereabouts of
the huge army transport C-124.
It was found as hopes were fad-
ing for the missing men.
U.S. Coast Guard headquar-
ters in-'Boston said its cutter I
Casco radioed it had picked up
a charred duffle bag, identified
as belonging to one of the
Globemaster's passengers, 550
miles west southwest of Shan-,
The Casco's message said the
bag belonged to U.S. Airforce
Capt. L. E. Rafferty, of .Great
Lakes, Ill., listed among the 53
persons aboard the plane.
Apparently, the Casco was bas-
ed at the international weather
station in the Atlantic designated
as "C for Charlie." Boston Coast
Guard headquarters said the Cas-
co was not at its assigned weather
station when it reported picking
up the bag.
It is possible the Casco may,
have referred to itself simply as
"Charlie" in its message to the
airforce rescue headquarters at
Shannon. The Airforce said the
message it had received gave no
description of the condition of
the bag or any other details.
The differences in reported po-
sitions where the bag was found
could not immediately be explain-
ed but it appeared both messages
referred to the same bag

they were free to cross at any time
military needs dictated.

Chunchon, other Allied forces
fought Chinese Reds less than two
miles from the border.
In western Korea north of Seoul,
Red forces resisted fiercely from
defenses in depth extending some
15 miles below, the parallel. The
Communists there attempted two
counterattacks today but were
beaten back.
The bitter fighting, some of it
hand-t-hand with bayonets and
frei 'c'es, cost the Reds 3,235 killed
cr wounded and 341 prisoners in
gr urd action.
Inumbers added to the toll. Carrier-
based pilots estmated in one area;
attack north of Seoul they ac-
counted for 60 to 80 per cent of the
hill-entrenched Communists.
There was hard fighting along
12 miles of a ridge front north
of Seoul. The action, extended
eastward from a point northwest
of Uijongbu. That Alied-held
highway town is 12 miles north
of Seoul.
U.S. troops fought all day before
driving elements of twoRed bat-
talions from the first line of ridges
north of Uijongbu.

BELGIANS and Americans dug
the Communists out of camou-
flaged caves northwest and north-
east of Uijongbu while advancing
more than half a mile.
The Communists' positions
continued northward in depth
across the 38th parallel into
North Korea.
Twenty miles northwest of Seoul,
where 3,300 paratroopers dropped
at Munsan, Friday, surprised ele-
ments of the North Korean First
Corps were giving themselves up.
Twenty-seven were captured in
one brush. sixty-four surrendered
after a fight south of Munsan.
