North. Korean prisoners in the
anti-Red compounds will be re-

Top authoritative sources in
Korea say it is inevitable.
"r "All this stuff now going on at

WASHINGTON--P)-The United States disclosed last night it
will make a super-secret series of atomic tests in the Pacific soon,
and there was immediate speculation that a mighty hydrogen weapon
would be exploded.
Signaling that the time has arrived for another advance in the
science of atomic warfare, the Atomic Energy Commission said men
and materials would start moving to the proving grounds in the
Marshall Islands this month.

Sen. Capehart, chairman of the

what he called a "radical idea" of

HE TOLD a Congress of Indus-

ference he has long been worried
about the plight of citizens who
cannot afford either a down pay-
ment on a home or "the high rents
they are forced to pay today."
Sen. Cpehart disapproved
past programs under which pub-
lie housing has been built with
federal subsidies for rent to low-
income families. He said itzwould
be better to help such families
finance their own homes.
"We could go into it on, say, a'
billion dollar basis figuring on los-
ing 200 or 300 million," Sen. Cape-
hart said.
"Even if we tool a licking fi-
nancially, because some of the
people couldn't keep up their
payments, I think we'd be better
off as a nation than with the
public housing plan. I think the
vast majority would become suc-
cessful homeowners."
Sen. Capehart said the billion
dollars might help build a million
homes, presumably by addition to
private construction capital.
