Churchill - Credits Atom Bomb With Stopping Reds

Churchill on speakers platform, Massachusetts Institute of Technology. View of large crowd applauding as he comes to mic in MCU. Speaking: ...I have no technical & no University education and just had to pick up a few things as I went along (applause). Shot of crowd.

15:13:59 We are now confronted w/ something quite as wicked, but in some ways more formidable than Hitler. Because Hitler had only the Herrenvolk pride, and anti-Semitic hatred to exploit. He had no fundamental theme. But these 14 men in the Kremlin have their hierarchy, & a church of Communist adepts, whose missionaries are in every country in a Fifth Column, obscure people about awaiting the day when they hope to be the absolute monsters of their fellow countrymen & pay off old scores. They have their anti-God religion and their Communist Doctrine of the entire subjugation of the individual to the State; knowing behind it stands the largest army in the world in the hands of a government pursuing Imperialistic Expansion as no Czar or Kaiser has ever done. I must not conceal from you tonight the truth as I see it. It is certain that Europe would have been Communized, like Czechoslovakia, London under bombardment some time ago, but for the deterrent of the atomic bomb in the hands of the United States. Standing applause by crowd & those on platform.

Title: News Of The Nation (Call for Civil Defense)

01:11:48 MCU of ?? reading; he looks up, speaks (SOF): Since we have learned that Russia has developed an Atom Bomb we must act w/o further delay to provide for the immediate study & investigation of the problem of building facilities for civil defense . In many of our cities underground structures for auto parking & other purposes have been constructed or are under consideration for construction at this time. And the Federal Government could cooperate w/ the State & Municipal officials for the immediate installation of certain emergency equipment such as auxillary lighting & first aid & surgical supplies in these structures. The immediate urgent need of municipalities to solve their automobile parking problems by the construction of underground municipal garages can be utilized for the far reaching long range objectives of national civilian defense thru cooperation w/ the Federal Government to incorporate defense measures against atomic bombs & other types of destructive agents in their construction.

The Telenews Daily - B-36 Hearings Continue (effectiveness of Naval Aircraft, USSR planes, Atomic Bomb)

11:28:34 Congressional committee.

11:28:42 MS of young Navy officer at microphone, SOF: In summary gentlemen, Navy jet fighters currently operate freely & effectively in the regions above 40,000 feet. They have proved their ability to intercept, overtake & shoot down targets that are much faster & more difficult than the B-36 class of bomber could be at its best.

11:29:09 MS Slightly older ?? officer, SOF: In the newsreels we have seen photographs of sleek, swept-wing jet fighters flying over Moscow. Also we know from press reports that fully modern Rolls Royce jet engines are available to several European countries, including Russia. With this infromation, an aeronautical engineer experienced in the fighter development game has no trouble forming a pretty accurate estimate of the merit of the jets seen flying over Moscow. It is revealing no secret to say that those fighters in combat ability are equal to, or better than, the best in this country today.

11:29:58 MS Navy Commander, Eugene Tatom, head of reserach & development for aviation ordnance, SOF: If we are forced to use the atom bomb we cannot afford to miss. Contrary to popular opinion, the effect of the atom bomb while completely devastating in the immediate vicinity of its burst, is rather limited in the area of its destruction. You could stand in the open at one end of the north-south runway at the Washington National Airport, with no more protection than the clothes you now have on, and have an atom bomb explode at the other end of the runway without serious injury to you. This idea is contrary to the general conception held by most people that the effect of the atom bomb is so wide spread that accuracy in bombing w/ it is not necessary.

[Atomic Energy Lewis L. Strauss on Bravo Hydrogen Bomb Test & Radioactivity, 31Mar54]

Strauss at mics in front of drawn maps of South Pacific & Bikini & other atolls.

02:00:26 MCU waiting. Speaking: The President has authorized me to make available those portions of my report to him, the publication of which would not compromise information vital to our national security. I have just returned from the Pacific Proving Grounds of the Atomic Energy Commission where i have witnesssed the second part of a test series of thermonuclear weapons, weapons powerful enough to take out a city.

02:01:06 Repeat in CU.

02:01:46 Early this January men & supplies began to move out to the Proving Grounds for this series. The first shot took place on its scheduled date of March 1st & the second on March 26th. Both were successful. No test is made w/o a definite purpose & a careful determination that it is directed to an end result of major importance to our military strength & readiness. The result which the scientists at Los Alamos & Livermore had hoped to obtain from these two tests were fully realized; an enormous potential has been added to our military posture by what we have learned. It should also be noted that the testing of weapons is important likewise in order to be fully aware of the possible future aggressive ability of an enemy, for we now we fully know we possess no monopoly of capability in this awesome field.

02:02:49 Now as to this specific test series: the first shot has been variously described as devastating, out of control, & w/ other exaggerated & mistaken characterizations. I would not wish to minimize it; it was a very large blast in the megaton range...the misapprehension seems have arisen due to two facts: the yield was about double that of the calculated estimate...and second, because of the results of the fallout.

02:03:52 For the day of shot number one, the meteorologists had predicated a wind condition that should have carrried the fallout... the wind failed to follow the predictions but shifted south of that line & the little islands of Rongelap & Rongerik & Utirik...the Japanese fishing trawler seemed to have been missed by the search...well within the danger area. The 23 crewmembers.., 28 American personnel manning weather stations on the little islands & the 236 natives...were therefore w/in the area of the fallout...taken to the island of Kwajalein... Today, a full month after the event...the 23 Japanese fishermen is less certain due to the fact...not yet been permitted by the Japanese authorities to make a proper clinical examination...

02:06:47 Repeat: For the day of shot number one...

02:07:09 I concluded my report to the President...that one important result of these hydrogen bomb developments has been the enhancement of our military capability to the point where we should soon be more free to increase our emphasis on the peaceful uses of atomic power at home & abroad...
