In his final State-of-the-Union message, President Truman took steps to rivet greater attention upon this hor- ; rifying new phenomenon. This Was wholly, fitting, since the jrovernment's unnecessarily vague presentation of tlie Eniwetok story hntt much to do with the lack of public concern. In the interval since the original an- nounctment, some reporters hnve come forth with the declaration that the Eni- wetok explosion was a resounding success. They contend that a bomb of co- loss&l destructive force was touched off. Jfr. Truman appeared to confirm, rather than to challenge, this information when lib offered dire warnings to Preniier Stalin of the ruinous nature of any future general war. Knowing what we know of what happened at Eniwetok, we understand these words of the President to bb more than idle phrases: "The war of the future would be one in which man could c.xtinjjiiish millions of lives at one blow, demolish the great cities of the world, wipe out (he. cultural achievements of thb past — and destroy the'very structure of a civilization that has been slowly and painfully built up through hundreds of generations. "Such a war is not possible for rational men." Mr. Truman said he did not know how long it would take Stalin and his associates in the Kremlin to understand what tilt H-bomb and the lesser A-bomb would do to his regime and to Russia's great cities. It is entirely possible the Kremlin may already grasp the full import. For, whatever disposition the Russian Communists may have shown to commit aggression, to impose their rule on millions of frte men, they have shown very little liking for national .suicide. And, with their own highly developed seismographic and other technical ' equipment, they do not need to take President Truman's word that we arb now in the. hydrogen age. They have their independent check on what occurred at Eniwetok. Beyond any doubt the Russians are racing to fashion an H-bomb to match ours. Eventually thty will surely succeed. Scientists say there is no technical mystery about the bomb once you have built an A-bomb, as the Russians have. Nevertheless, developing an H-bomb will not rtlievo the Beds ot the threat posed by thu American version. It will . merely give Moscow the means to retaliate In kind. Inevitably, in these first months of life with this dread device tucked away in our arsuials, we cannot see clearly the whole meaning. The H-bomb, promising holocausts of tire and blast and tumbling stone, could be the weapon that will end the great wars. Men undertake war only when they believe they can prosecute it at less than ruinous cost to themselves. President Truman suggests to the world that such a war may never Bgain be possible. If that IB 'true, the onjy question, thtn, is whether all men across the globe may be brought to realize it In time. Views of Others His Great Team The president-elect has gathered about him A group of cftblnet members and subordinate officials of almn-sL unexampled strength The country Is congratulnttng itself upon the fact that such men are willing to make very grehi per- fional sacrifices in order to serve the nation. Those at the head or the various departments are expected to clean out Ihislr own corners, to select men and women of ahlUly imrt Integrity to serve under them, to carry out the general philosophy ol government and the principles expounded by Gen. Eisenhower during the campaign. At the same time, he himself proposes to exercise authority, demand fidelity nnrl give general and specific direction'Lo th'e administration. His experience as a military commander in han- dllnR millions of men under arms, and pursuing a strategical plan to victory, will Insure cooperation and elicit r-nthusia.stic support. It has been n long while alncc so much has been, done to Insure a government equipped to meet and to resolve the many difficult situations which confront the new president- The first cabinet, under Washington, was, perhaps, gr en tost of all — Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton. Robert Livingston and Gen. King. Even these men were not hetler equipped, taking into consideration the .state of the times, than are those who soon will lake charfifi of the- government at home and in foreign relations. With Congress In R co-operative mood, rapid progress should be made by the country In Clearing up the mw.5 in Washington. Ona thing Ls certain, that the people, who have been^noroughly aroufieri'and are expecting much,, will iWfitch with care the course of events, and support every sound measure proposed and every net of Congress calculated to put the country hack upon Its traditional course. — Lexington <Ky.) Leader. ' nk In Balance We would like to be among the /Irst to point out — by doing It ourselves that many a bad pun will be committed about the new treasurer of the United Slates coming from a town called Bountiful. But before too much is made of the name of the legal residence of Mrs, ivy Bafcer Priest, whose name will appear on all the new paper money after she takes office, it would be useful to recall one of her first- remarks to the press after her appointment: "My checkbook always balances," That U a qunlllicnUon for high public office not to be taken lightly. The phrase might even become symbolic. We hope It does, for a balanced Checkbook la a fur belter symbol Tor our "treasury than ttie bounteous amounts ot red Ink we're so used to. —Wall Street Journal. Soap Opera Soon niter the announcement of hi* appointment to be. the attorney general In the Eisenhower administration, Herbert Bro'.vnell said he would clean up the Justice Department. A few days later, Democratic Attorney General James P. McGrnnery filed sulta under the anti-trust Inws against- three big soap companies. CouM there be a connection between these two incidents? —Greenville fS. G.) Piedmont-.

A hit show or personality on radio was assured ol lonf and lasting success — Ihe ears of audiences never seemed lo lire. But already television has gone through a long list of stars and shows that sparkled briefly and then quickly faded. K The answer Is obvious and everyone In TV knows U: The eyo U more Jensilfve than the ear. The eye (Ires faster. It's more critical and recoils quickly at me- rtlocrity and repetition. How long will audiences watch big-time series shows with the same people same sets week after and ihe week? It's a big question mark. Hollywood's most successful rles was Andy Hardy.

When the Federal Reserve Act wns passed I n 1913, it was considered by mi\ny as a highly radical piece of leg- 'slation. Sen. Nelson Aldrlch Rhode Island. "Peter EdMn Republican who led the fight!

And the Banking government con- and Currency Committee hearings on the several reserve bank bills under consideration at the time are full of tele- prams from bankers all around the country, urging Congress to "avoid all radical legislation affecting credit." Forty years later, the Federal Reserve Board and its banking system are regarded as bulwarks of war, when Claude Wickard was Secretary of Agriculture, he had a monthly meeting with the Big Three. Ed O'Neill was head of the Farm Bureau then, Albert Ooss was head of the Grange and Jim Patton, then as now, headed Farmers' Union. The Eijr Three so often disagreed on farm policy that their meetings ivith Wickard became known as "The Secretary's Monthly Shouting Society." Bridges' Last Stand The controversial new McCnrran- Walter immigration law will make no difference in the status of West Longshoreman Harry :rjury convic- . - - by 5 special three-Judge panel in San Francisco. Bridges has appealed this decision to the U.S. Suprenie Court. Final action there is expected this year.

U.S. Under Strength In Korea Main reason for increasing the February draft call to 53,000 men is that there is an actual shortage of Americans in Korea. Many U.S units are under full strength inso far as the number of Americans in them Is concerned. Actually, all of these units are over strength, because they, have Korean units attached for trainini and duty. If American strength is allowed to fall loo low. Ihere is a fear tha other allied nations with troop: In Korea may rmt^replace Iheii casualties to keep their units a full strength.' 1 - The real straggle In the Senate n-lll be to keep a liberal party alive.
