Their hearts were bowed down with hard labor;... Then they cried to the lord in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress; He brought them out of darkness and gloom, and broke their bonds asunder." -Psa. 107:10-14 Thought Control The other day a man canceled his subscription to a newspaper because its editor had upheld Ihi public's right to choose what it shall read. This was not the defecting subscriber's view of the matter; hi accused the editor of defending an obscene book, Bui this was not what the editor had done. He had written that an illegal attempt to halt sale of the book had violated a fundamental liberty., The editor--and we say this in humble awareness that editors may be just as fallible as other men--wa on solid ground in this case. The incident illustrates j point of vital importance in a free society. As it happened, the book whose attempted suppres »ion by police had started the ball rolling was Henry Miller's controversial novel, "Tropic of Cancer." Th book has been hailed as a work of genius and damnei «s a cesspool of filth. On the advice of the Justice De partment that it would not be judged legally obscen in the light of pertinent court decisions, the Pos Office Department recently permitted it to be mailed-more than a quarter of century after first publicatior ·.broad. But all this is, in a sense, neither here nor there The editor, pointing out that arbitrary censorship without due legal process could not be tolerated, wa not specifically defending "Tropic of Cancer." He dii not, in fact, publish any judgment of the book. Wha he did was to insist that no publication can properly be banned until the courts have declared it obscene on the basis of statutes not in conflict with the Constitu tion. Anything short'of that is a step toward though control. And thought control is, as history has demon strated many times, the arch enemy of democratic gov- 1 trnment. Letters to The Tribune whatever he did, he did with full A Trigger for War To The Tribune: It needs slating in the midst ol all the talk concerning civil de ense, that In the evert of nuclear var, fallout shelters will not save us. Some could be saved but not all. Fallout shelters could not save society as we know it. There is inly one solution and that is peace. In case of nuclear attack, only hose persons not' directly caught the blast or firestorm would land a chance of being saved, by hellers. A 10 megaton H-bomb the explosive power .of all »mbs dropped by all participants n World War II. One of these bombs .would destroy all but the most deeply sheltered living crea- we wilh in Ihe radius of five miles. The resulting firestorm would burn until there was noth- ng led lo consume within a radius of at least 25 miles. Oxygen vould be drawn into the firestorm fom even greater distances. This s a 10 megaton bomb. The bomt recently exploded by Mr. K. ant associates was 50 to IOC mega .ons. Persons far away from ihe jlast area would be hurt by fall out.

Carbon H Is a case in point These poisons'would drift slowly lo earth · bombarding and food supply. Surviving a -nuclear war in volves a long list of considera [ions. Few of. these have been squarely faced by those who talk of "adequate" civil defense. Fo example, in case of an H-bomb explosion, reflex would cause one to look at the flash. In that in slant, perhaps even before feel ing the heal, he would become blind. Nor can one overlook .thi effect lhat shock would have on the. survivors. Who knows wha menial illness would come?

That is the facility with which wars can be triggered by recklessness or irre- sponsibile bellicose nationalism. The way the famous newspaper publisher whip- lashed emotional Americans into war hysteria againsl Spain in 18D8 'was a perfect example of how chip- on-the-shoulder super-patriotisni can plunge nations over the brink, ruiniiig the most heroic efforts of peace- loving men to avert the catastrophe. To Quote his most recent biographer, W. A. Swanberg ("Citizen Hearst, 1 published by Scribners) Hearst's coverage of the sinking of the battleship Maine in Havana harbor on Feb 15, 1898 was "the orgasmic acme of ruthless, truthless newspaper jingoism." History is replete with instances in which con flicta have been touched off by indiscretions. Some of them, alas, have been deliberate. Others due to hotheads letting exasperation upset their judgment momentarily. Hare-brained rashness was bad enough when it meant the loss of thousands of lives. Today, when it could destroy the world, such undisciplined reaction can no longer be tolerated. millions of people) became radio ctive corpses, the s u r v i v o r ould. bury them.

Where is our American dream \re there no other alternatives Hal Boyle's Column Japanese Call New Arrivals In Tokyo The Fresh Eyes' By CONRAD FINK TOKYO (AP)-Long-time American residents in Tokyo lump their jtewly arrived countrymen in one category--"the Fresh Eyes."

S. News and Worli Report that 77 per cent of foreigi id money for 1960 was spent ii jnited States. Thirty per cent of all export were shipped under some govern ment program. Total economic ind military aid in I960 was $6.2 illion, or about the size of the irst New Deal federal budget. I see why our congress has con- .islently supported these [rams. They are props our 'economy must have. I think of the em- iloymcnt supplied by the pro;ram. Since World War I and the great depression we have become acute- y conscious of the employment roblem and 1 have retained it as a Hirden on our conscience. We have cut work hours and added fealher- «dding until it has become more of a problem to determine the amount of feather-bedding than .he 'wage. We keep our children n school by passing them and making it a lot of fun.' They arrive at military age, or work age so flabby in mind and body that in ;oo many cases they are useless. We have shelved our oldsters and penalized them if they work. We maintain a still have unemployment. We are about to complete the cycle and start putting the relief- ers on a sort of WPA. When you ravel in are whipped. Our society has changed much n recent years. A serious complication of our problem of exchange and unemployment was inevitable. This makes the old system im possible. It forces changes which many of .us do not like but we are not going -back to the old- ime methods of production and exchange. We had just as well be realistic, face our 'problem and :ind some new methods. Our ultimate problem is to conserve our resources for best use -'-brain, body', spirit, mineral, soil and water. They must, by all means be put to use or we had just as well not have them. Why destroy them on an altar which is not worthy of alone our worship? In a previous article 1 Indicated how ..agriculture could conserve reconcile their differences about making concessions to Khrushchev on Berlin, or not making them. So far as is known they reconciled nothing. And they, are not likely to have so. much quietude again for a long time since now Khrushchev-:again can give them his full attention and throw some more logs on their fire. In reality--and only time will show it-lhe West, like Khrushchev, may have gained a lot from the congress. Possibly it gained nothing, lost much. For the time being it can*t tell which. This much is clear: Khrushchev emerged from him freer than be has ever been to pursue what policies he thinks This--symbolized by. the parly's all.
