SECOND ATOMIC BOMB Japs Say Power Cannot Be Minimised N.Z. Press Association —Copyright Rec. 10 a.m. NEW YORK, Aug. 9. A second atomic bomb has been dropped on Japan, this time on the great port of Nagasaki, on the western coast of Kyushu, the most southern of the Japanese home islands.

NEW YORK, Aug. 9

A special communique from Guam, headquarters of General Spaatz, Commander-in-Chief of the United States Pacific Army Air Force, states that the bomb was dropped at midday to-day (Japanese time). Good results are reported.

Nagasaki is an ■ important shipbuilding centre, where both warships and big ocean-going steamers are built. Before the war it had a population of about 230,000.

Although nothing has been broadcast in Japan so far about the 'atomic bomb attack on Nagasaki, Tokyo radio put out an announcement which said: "Do not neglect any longer the presence of merely a few aeroplanes. Take shelter immediately. The power of the new bombs cannot be minimised."
