In Beacon Falls Town Court the other night a driver arraigned on a charge of speed- Ing on the nearly complete four- lane highway through the town came up with the defense that 'he thought the new road has been "built for speeding." The court saw neither humor nor logic in. the defense and promptly Imposed 5»- : lat -fine. The campaign currently under way In Beacon Falls to halt and prosecute all motor vehicle laws violators, with particular emphasis on the speeders, must be continued without relaxation if the new highway ia to be a traffic cure, rather than a curse. A new highway, fetching •wide and clear and far is a natural invitation and sometimes a challenge to- the reckless driver to step on the -gas. Authorities of Beacon Falls have displayed keen perception of their knowledge of the dangers naturally associating themselves with a super highway. Their decision to start now, even before the road la complete, with a program of rigid enforcement of speed limits will pay untold dividends in life and property. For the sake of traffic safety, for the''protection of cautious pedestrians and drivers, arid also for the benefit of the reckless, we hope that the state and local police assigned to patrolling the new highway will compile, if it be necessary, a record of enforcement and arresta that will gain state-wide attention. - Thus will Beacon Falls remain a" community of traffic safety for pedestrian .and motorist alike— •in spite of the hazards related to super-highway travel. Total War No one will disagree with Rear Admiral Oftaie, a member of the long parade of naval officers tes- -.ifying before the House Armed Services - Committee, that indiscriminate atom bombing would be "ruthless and barbaric.". It is not in the American tradition, as the admiral says, to press a policy of "random manslaughter of men, women and children In the enemy country." As for the military effectiveness of strategic bombing — whether "area" or "pin-point" bombing — there is evidence to support Admiral Oftsie's thesis that bombing alone does not .win wars. German bombers, for instance, failed in the Battle of Britain.. American and British mass air attacks did-not crush German Industry. Also, fighter escort — which would limit the range of the Air Force's "intercontinental" bomber—was proven a vital and necessary deterrent against prohibitive losses. In the Pacific, especially at Midway, there is expert opinion that it was the "tactical" carrier-based plane which won the day, not the "strategic"' land- based bomber. Similarly, and as the admiral points out. the island of Iwo Jima had to be captured at great cost to provide an emergency landing area and fighter escort fields for the "strategic" B-29s operating against the Japanese mainland. Admitting that •jAir Force claims were excessive, that strategic bombing couldn't win the war alone, what was the substitute for it? Wasn't it a necessary- part of the "grand assault" on Germany and Japan? No one weapon or tactic, no one arm or service,' can of itself secure the decision. As Tor the morality of strategic bombing, the admiral's argument in one which, well might bf directed against war . itself — against organized bloodshed as ah .Instrument 'of policy • among naticnsl . . War is both > immoral and Inhuman, and it should follow that all its weapons and tactics—not just one — should be considered similarly immoral and inhuman. . But until the policy of war is scrapped, the emphasis will continue to be on the means to achieve victory. ond most populous country on earth. That accomplished, the communists would not only have most of the people but some rich resources, including the prolific oil fields of Asia. It is an indictment of Moscow's policies that Nehru is making this visit to the West. His policy is peace and non-violence. He wants most of all a prolonged period of peace to develop the resources of his country and lift his people, millions of them in miserable circumstances, to an acceptable standard of living. Nehru is turning to the West because it stands for the things he wants for India—freedom and a vigorous economy. Do You Remember? One Year Ago Dr. and Mrs. Walter J.
