Expert Estimates Force
Of A-Bomb Destruction
Firecracker' Primed for Race
take as many as 6,500 atomic
bombs to totally destroy the cities
of a major military power an
authority on strategic air war said
The estimate came from Stefan
T. Possony, a specialist on bomb
target selection for France during
the first part of the European war,
later a psychological warfare ex-
pert for the United States Navy
after the fall of France.
A hobby show, senior grade, will
be one of the features of the Uni-
versity's Second Annual Institute
on Living in the Later Years,
scheduled for July 20 and 21.
Entries for the hobby show are
being sought from anywhere in
the state, but entrants must be at
least 55 years old in order to qual-.
ify. The age requirement reflects
the fact that the institute is con-
cerned with living in the "later
Handicraft work or the products
of other creative leisure time ac-
tivities are especially desired. All
entries or inquiries concerning the
show should be addressed to Dr.
Wilma T. Donahue, Bureau of
Psychological Services; in care of
the University at Ann Arbor.
The institute itself will deal with
some of the problems that arise as
one grows older. Lectures, discus-

tive leisure time activities, housing
and living arrangements and em-

HIS CALCULATIONS on the
enormous number of A-bombs re-
quired, coupled with a detailed an-
alysis of the limitations as well as
capabilities of- existing bomber
fleets, questions the theory of an
"atomic blitz" to defeat an enemy
in a quick war. He cautions that
"the destructiveness of a weapon
is dependent on the quantity in
which this weapon can be made
Possony, currently lecturing
on military subjects at George-
town University, set down his
views in a volume on "Strategic
Air Power for Dynamic Secur-
ity," published by the Infantry
Possony used Germany, in its
wartime condition, as an example
of estimating the number of A-
bombs necessary for a war of
"total destruction" against urban
areas. He chose that country be-
cause statistics are available for
destruction wrought by conven-
THE HAVOC produced by one
atomic bomb is equal to about
4,000 tons of conventional bombs,
based on the actual damage pro-
duced bysthe blast,Possony esti-
This, as he points out, is dif-
ferent than the purely theoretical
figure (based on mere measure-
ments of blast) of one A-bomb
equal to 20,000 tons of TNT. That
estimate was made in the first of-
ficial announcenent of the atomic
bomb, at the time of the 1945
attack on Hiroshima.
Possony discusses in cold but
alarming statistics the death toll
expectable if an atomic attack was
launched against the United States
-but challenges a statement that
40,000,000 persons would die in
the first 24 hours.
