FRONT COVER: Natives of Bikini Atoll leave their village homes, carrying household goods, to board LSTs as preparations are made for the first peacetime test of the atom bomb at the Pacific island.

INSIDE FRONT COVER: Basking on Hoover Beach near Apra Harbor, the port of embarkation from Guam. When sun gets too hot, men can retreat under the sunshade pavilion. Separatees pass hours here while awaiting transportation home.

INSIDE BACK OVER: It's snowjackets for bluejackets of the USS Juneau as they stand at attention during commissioning ceremonies at the New York Naval Shipyard 16 February. The new 6000-ton light cruiser replaces her namesake, sunk off Guadalcanal in 1942.
