Wanted to Get A-Test Over,
Everingham Writes Mother

The prevailing attitude of all hands at Operation Crossroads, just before the atomic bomb test, was to "get it over with," according to Lt. Lloyd R. Everingham, on the USS Avery Island who wrote to his mother, Mrs Lyda Everingham 180 Hudson st. the night before.
Lt. Everingham said that he had been working 14 to 18 hours a day regularly to get ready. "Tomorrow is the day of the 'big boom'," he wrote on June 30. "I think it would be a patriotic gesture if they would postpone it until July 4 (some firecracker), but I guess only the weather man could arrange such a coincidence. Besides, no amount of patriotism could dispel the prevailing attitude of all hands in favor of getting it over with at first opportunity.
"Oddly enough, while there is some excitement in anticipation, now that 'A' day is finally so near, still the entire task group, with preperations completed, is more calmly relaxed than at any time since we left."
Lt. Everingham said, in closing, he wanted to get off some more letters so they would be in time for the special stamp cancellation. He closed by saying he would have to get to bed soon as he "must be up and atom" early tomorrow. The letter to Syracuse arrived in eight days.
His wife, the former Mary Alice Hughes, a graduate of Syracuse university, flew from Washington to meet him and is now in Honolulu.
Lt. Everingham is a 1935 graduate of Syracuse university and was formerly physical director of mathematics at Central high school and with the Sun Oil Co. He entered service in June, 1942. He expects to return to the U.S. in October.
