The article offers information on the postponement of the atomic bomb test at Bikini atoll which was scheduled on May 15, 1946. This development was contained in a press statement of President Harry S. Truman on March 22, 1946. It is noted that the first two tests would be set back approximately six weeks each. The President underlined the fact that due to the heavy legislative calendar, a great number of Congressmen could not attend the proposed tests if these were to be held on the original dates.
