Comment by Jonathan Schell. When the Justice Dept. dropped its request for a court order barring the Wisconsin magazine "The Progressive" from publishing an article about the making of an H-bomb, it abandoned a battle lost 34 years ago when the first atomic bomb was exploded near Alamogordo, N.M.

Talk story about the Ottendorfer Library, on 2nd Ave. near St. Marks Place, where the city's fiscal crisis, the nation's energy crisis, and the historic preservation movement have converged.
