Atomic Ashes Hit Japan
TOKYO Atomic particles, which are a result of a Russian
A-bomb test near the Arctic Circle, have been reported lalUng
on Japan This report was secured from Shigeyoshi Mdtsumae,
sn engineer who said he received his information from Ammcan
military quarters. The United States Far East Command offered
no comment on the situation. . , ..
Small quantities of radioactive ash fall on Japan about three
times every two weeks from Russian explosions in Siberia, the
Teport said. The United States has confirmed that Russia possesses
atomic bombs from these ashes. The ashes take three days to
reach Japan and take one week to circle the globe.
Westerly winds which prevail throughout the year could
cause these ashes to fall, the weathet bureau in Japan said.
GOP Agrees To Tax Cut
WASHINGTON Following the loss of a test in which a $100
million reduction was votefl on household appliances, Senate
Republican leaders regrouped forces against any further floor
cuts in excise taxes.
When the GOP loss became apparent, they agreed to accept
the household appliance cut. However, the possibility remains
that the appliance tax cut will be knocked out in a conference
with the House. The cut proposal is to lower the tax from 10 to
5 per cent.
Sen. Millikin (R-Colo), chairman of the Finance Committee,
said that the House would probably stand firm against going
below the 10 per cent level on most excises this year.
