FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 34, I&56 BLTTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THREE Fleet Adm. Nimitz s 71st Birthday Wish-Peace for Ail of the World By LEIF ERICKSON BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) — Fleet Adm. Chester W. Nimitz, who observes his 71st birthday today, has pondered what-a war weapons of mass destruction may be like. "I hope," he said, "the world soon can find a leadership that will be able to sway the people to the idea that all war is wrong. War is a senseless sort of activity." The admiral, of course, believes firmly that the United states must maintain retaliatory power in all weapons as a deterrent against anyone venturing now to start an atomic war. Nimiti! took command of the- gravely crippled U.S. Pacific Fleet after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor Dec. 7, 1941. He directed the quickening drive across the Pacific — in victories at Midway, Tarawa, Kwajalein,' Saipan and Guam, Iwo Jima and Okinawa — that ended in the surrender ceremony in Tokyo Bay aboard his , fleet's battleship Missouri. Oil Hillside Nimitz lives now in busily ha; retirement in a home nig! Berkeley hillside with a sweepin view of San Francisco Bay and the Golden Gate. His wife Catherine found it in 1948—after his tour in Washington as chief of naval operations—to fit the admiral's specifications Tor "three bathrooms and a long view." At the desk in his compac study, Nimitz told in an interview of his contemplations on the vast change in the weapons of war fare since the bitter battle f9i Iwo Jima began 11 years ago last week. "I don't -want to pontificate," he said. ''I don't know what the answer is. "But there is grave 'doubt ir my mind that weapons of mass destruction — weapons that can't be pinpointed on military targets —serve their purpose properly. "Such weapons are indiscriminate in their effects. They kill \vomen and children." Nimttz posed the q u e s t i o n, "How efficient, really, are mass destruction weapons?" Resentment in Europe In Europe, he said, "we know there is resentment and bitterness against <he United States for the mass bombings of World War II and the potential destruction of an atomic war. "I don't know how the Japanese think and feel, of course, now they are our friends, because they must have us on their side. But I Cecil the Camel To Get a Bride MIAMI, Fid.
