Albuquerque Tribune Bulletin, July 16, 1945
This press clipping gives the public announcement issued by the Commanding Officer of the Alamogordo Army Base. It was prepared by me well ahead of time, and minor changes were telephoned to my liaison officer at the Alamogordo Base. Its purpose was to put a damper on local press comment. The big eastern papers and the wire services were most cooperative in keeping information about the explosion out of the news. This was handled through their voluntary censorship arrangements.
