Fourteen Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Rocket Scientist Speaks Of Moral Responsibility 'E'tllt.t*.,. iiT_i_ . _. .. ...... _ . * Editors Note: The notion of the U.S. launching a shining "Christmas satellite' as a peace gesture to the world has caught the fancy of Dr. S. Fred Singer, a University of Maryland astrophysicist. It also set him to thinking about the great space race with Russia. On a Nov. 16 train trip he was prompted to put down on paper a rocket scientist's revealing "statement of conscience." By S. FRED SINGER WASHINGTON (UP) — I am not a pacifist, and I, like many others, recognize that war is preferable dignity of the individual are paramount, then I think the course to follow is clearly marked out. Spiritual and Mora.'. You may ask why scientists should concern themselves with moral problems. I would answer that concern with the lav/ of nature doesn't disqualify one from considering many other questions. Perhaps even scientists who nowadays have the awful responsibility to design new weapons have a special reason to consider moral matters. 1. think it is very essemial that the U.S. inaugurate the space proto living under peace which can-[ gram which will surely lead to not be endured. But I don't think I? 1811 ' 8 . master .y °, f th . 6 sol « s y s " we are doing enough to promote' tem ' ln a s P' ntual and moral wa y- peace. » In the phoney Soviet peace offensive their hypocritical use of the word (peace) has made the very word one which we should avoid lest we be called 'Reds.' If one believes sincerely as I do, in the fundamental moral superiority of our way of life, a way of life for the rights and John Joseph Frank "UNDERCOVER" —John Joseph Frank, former FBI and CIA agent, is on trial In Washington, accused of working' as an agent for the Dominican Republic without registering as such. (Internationall The Russians have chosen to begin it by launching a miital ball void of any spiritual significance, indeed of little scientific significance. What an opportunity for us. I can't think it's necessary for us to demonstrate any technical superiority. Even if we could and did rattle our sabers louder than the Russians, even if we did enter a 'rocket shooting contest' suggested by Khrushchev, what could we gain? There are millions of sincere people in our country wJio want peace, who strive for it and pray for it. Their voice should te heard, and it should be heard round the world. What better symbol for expressing this deep felt urge than a peace and good will satellite which spells out our Christmas wish of peace on earth and goocl will to all men. How can such a sincere demonstration not make an impact on the millions around the world who hs.ve been waiting for this mes- ss.ge for 2,000 years. It is only today that this message has truly a worldwide meaning. Surely these men of good will will respond to this message and applaud it. Yes, even inside Russia there are millions who will applaud us even though they cannot answer back, people whose minds cannot be poisoned by Communist propaganda, people who admire the achievements of the U.S. and ' despise their dictators.
