Warsaw, Sept. 23—Two Amer-
icans were in trouble Unlay in
two separate cases in Poland.
One man — Hermann Field of
Cleveland—was missing. The oth-
er—Anatole ilerton, k New York
furrier—was in jail.
Field is an architect whb arriv-
ed in Poland a few weeks ago. He
was last seen August 27th when
he Was to take a plane to Prague.
Twice, the State Department has
asked Poland to explain Field'*
disappearance. The Polish For-
eign Office has replied it is rea-
sonably certain Field was not
taken into Polish custody.
Helton is charged with bribing
a director of a State Enterprise
last year and was arrested when
he reached Poland August 8th. A
telegiam from Helton's wife in
Paris brought the case to the at-
tention of the American Embassy.
f The Embassy has been advised
that any representations to the
Foreign Ministry might result in
Herton's transfer to the criminal
court. There he . would face a
more severe penalty than he does
if convicted at a scheduled com-
mission hearing.

For months, some of the lead-

been telling us that Russia has
the Atom bomb.
And now it’s official.
Presiden Truman told his cabi-
net today, and we quote:
"We have evidence that within
recent weeks an atomic explosion
occurred in the U. S. 8. R.”
He did not say how the gov-
ernment learned about the Soviet
a-bomb explosion.
It’s taken for granted, however,
lhat the explosion was recorded
by the elaborate network of radar
gadgets that have been set up
with just that purpose in mind.
Our defense planners have at
their disposal a series of delicate
instruments that can pick up an
atomic explosion anywhere in the
world — even in the remotest cor-
ner of Russia’s Ural Mountains.
The news wires were still crack-
ling with Prescient Truman's
bombshell statement when the
British Government announced
that it, too, had received the
same information. The British said
they also have evidence in their
possession that an atomic explos-
ion has taken place recently on
Russian soil.
It may lie significant that at
this very moment, negotiations
are Jroing on between Britain.
