ABSTRACT
The article offers news briefs related to the weapons development and testing industry in the U.S. A story in the December 12, 1957 issue of the "The New York Post" said that U.S. nuclear tests in 1957 would be restricted to the Nevada proving grounds, which means that large hydrogen bombs will not be tested. Meanwhile, at a meeting of the North Atlantic Council in the middle of December 1957, representatives of five nations emphasized the need for tactical nuclear weapons in Europe.
