MOSCOW (P) - The Red army,
backing the ejection of four "anti-
party" leaders from top Kremlin
posts, accused them yesterday of
treachery and threatening to un-
dermine Soviet military defenses.
This was the view of Red Star,
the newspaper of Ma.rshal Georgi
K. Zhukov's Defense Ministry, in
the midst of a nationwide cam-
paign to discredit the ousted men.
There were these additional de-
velopments in the wake of the
shakeup announced Wednesday.
1. Communist China - after a
silence of two days - announced
its support of the moves directed
by Nikita Khrushchev, the Soviet
Peiping promised to work hard-
er than ever to strengthen the
"great fraternal alliance" with the

Saburov was fired last Decem-
ber as Russia's top economic plan-
ner - a post he had held for 20
years, including the Stalin era.
At that time Pervukhin was
named to head a new commission
charged with overhauling the na-
tion's industrial and agricultural
planning. Apparently he keeps
t that job.
Lazar Kaganovich, one of the
four leaders stripped of power,
Wednesday was the target yester-
day of charges which could por-
tend legal action against him.
The big question being asked
here is what the future holds for
the four: Kaganovich, V. M. Molo-
tov, georgi Malenkov and Dmitri
No Official Hint
There has been no official hint

WASHINGTON (-)-The United
States skeptically challenged Sov-
let boss Nikita Khrushchev yester-
day to prove he was acting for
world peace in firing V. M. Molo-
tov and other old Stalinists.
The United States reaction was
expressed in a statement by State
Department officer Lincoln White.
It seemed to be designed to
warn other nations against jump-
ing to quick conclusions about
some hopeful new turn in Soviet
In effect the statement counsel-
led "a wait and see" attitude.
This reflects the private reac-
tions of State Department officials
and analysts in the absence from
town of President Dwight D.
Eisenhower and Secretary of State
John Foster Dulles, both of whom
are taking July 4 holidays.
The officials are highly skeptical
that the Russians have really ex-
plained the real reasons why
Molotov and the ethers were fired,
and those reasons frankly are not

Girard, a young Army man held in
connection with the slaying of a
woman in Japan, Gen. Ridgeway
"The issue as I see it is whether
or not Girard was on duty. If he
was on duty his case falls wtihin
the scope of a court-martial. If he
was not on duty, he should be tried
by Japanese courts.

For Disaster '
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. () - Gov.
William G. Stratton asked United
States Secretary of Agriculture
Ezra Taft Benson yestereday to de-
clare the southern half of Illinois
an emergency area, due to windr
and flood damage.
Gov. Stratton said the designa-'
tion should apply to a 52-county
area comprising the southern half
of the state.
This would include counties
south of the northern line of Pike,
Morgan, Menard, S a n g a m o n,
Christian, Shelby, Moultrie, Doug-
las and Edgar counties.E
Under an emergency declaration,
farmers in the area would be eli-
gible for three per cent loans under
the Farmers Home Administration.I
Loans would go toward support-t
ing farms and families.
Gov. Stratton said he made the
decision to apply to Benson after
conferring with Stillman J. Stan-t
ard, state agriculture director.

the major portion of the gift of
$6,500,000 made to the University

WASHINGTON tom) - The con-
struction phase of Dewline - a
3,000-mile electronic fene to warn
of the approach of enemy bombers
- has now been completed.
'Final installation of the intri-

This is the farthest north of'
three protective lines laid out
across the transpolar air routes.
(The DEW in Dewline stands for
distant early warning.)
Prolonged trials of the line pro-
bably will continue tlWough the
summer and this means that the
400-million-dollar system will not
go into actual "operational status"
before fall or early winter.
The main portion of Dewline
reaches from Point Barrow, Alaska,
to Baffin Island, facing Greenland.
An extension from Point Barrow'
southwestward Tong the Alaskan
coast and out onto the Aleutian
Islands was decided upon after
building of the main section had
started and now is under way.
However, Alaska has had an
early warning radar system in]
operation for several years. 1
Extension of Dewline therefore
meant primarily a modificationt
improvement of that system to]
conform to the design of the maini
section in northern Canadian
The additional construction for
the Alaskan end is expected to<
lift the building cost for Dewlinei
to at least a half billion dollars.E
Dewline is a combination of
rotating radar, to sweep the sky,I
and fixed radar, filling gaps be-c
tween the rotating radar stations.I
It is tied into United States andr
Canadian continental defenset
headquarters by a system of radarI
and land line communication nets.
In operation, it is intended toI
provide between three and fourI
hours warning to cities and de -I

ATOMIC TEST SITE, Nev. ()-
The biggest, most dazzling atomic
explosion ever fired in the United
States shook the earth and em-
blazoned the skies yesterday in an
awesome show of nuclear might.
A brush and tree-covered moun-

flames under heat of the mam-
Marines entrenched 5,700 yards

unscathed and plunged through a
vast cloud of dust into attack
upon a mythical enemy.
Test director Dr. G. M. Johnson
said the shot's power was "well
over" the yield of the previous
record blast set off in 1955.
He declined to give the kiloton
rating of yesterday's explosion but
it has been pretty well established
unofficially that the previous rec-
ord was something over 60 kilo-
A kiloton is equal to the energy
.produced by explosion of 1,000
tons of TNT.
The only atomic bombs ever
dropped in warfare-those which
fell on the Japanese cities of Hiro-
shima and Nagasaki in World War
II-were rated at 20 kilotons each.
The Nevada test organization
announced that radioactive fall-
out from the giant would be

test area and the adjacent bomb-
