Germ Weapons Replace A-Bomb N«w Bacteriological . Substance Capable Of Destroying World ST. CERGUB, Switzerland, Sept. 12— tfi —The atom bomb has been rendered obsolete by new bacteriological weapons capable of wiping out mankind, says Dr. Brock Chrisholm, director general of the World Healfh Organization. • Dr. Chlsholm declared scientists have found one substance so deadly that seven ounces, properly distributed, could kill all the people in the world within six hours. He did not name the substance. The health chief appealed for a "new maturity" to prevent future wars, adding: 'The time has now come when man's ability to kill man has become io terrific that he threatens his own survival. "Any country which has a few- good bacteriologists and a few fanatic distributors," he declared, "is f ag potent militarily as any other country -in the world. Man power Is irrelevant, heavy industry lias nothing to do with this type of warfare. Large armies, navies and airforces—things which were regarded as a symbol of power—are obsolete. The atom bomb Is obsolete." "If the next generation grows up with thej same values we have," Dr. Chlsholm said, "they will destroy the human race." BLYTHEVltMB (AftK.)
