Subfloor over old adhesive

So quick story I have a small room to lay some hardwood. I pulled up the old carpet,scraped up the old linoleum tiles(which I prob shouldn't have) now I have ashault paper/maybe (prob) abspestos.so I can't sand it down which was the original plan as it is plank pine
Now the room, with the door shut it smells like poison glue.

Question being if I lay a subfloor over this think the smell will come up through osb and tarpaper? Was thinking of poly under bit don't want to trap moisture
Let me know if anyone has any experience with this.thanks!

It is poison glue. Why can't it be removed with some poison remover & some elbow grease? If not, what about removing the pine?

funny...elbow grease aint going to cut it, and the poison remover wont work because the glue is about 50/50 exposed with the old tar paper that went over it. i didn't want to tear out the pine as to disturb the asbestos.

You may have opened a can of worms. I think that you're in too deep & the pine has to go.
