' could . tr y to kil1 onl y on e or a few of the enemy at a time — to'the soldier of today who can ram down death on millions from the sky. Being a man of action and not finding it soon enough, there was a period in his early days when he thought it a "pity thnt It all had to be make-believe" and that war between nations hud come to an end. He had overestimated the ability of nations to settle things peace fully. He had his first military service, a dull one, with the British cavalry in India in 1895. He lived to have a hand in directing two world wars. Saw Progress In World War 17 the - weapons the antagonists produced—until the 1945 atomic bomb explosion—were the peak of all man's efforts ot devise instruments for eliminating human beings. l In that half century between 1895 and 1945 Churchill saw weapons progress, if that's the right word, from rifle and cavalry to machine guns, tanks, bazookas and even planes that dropped conventional TNT on factories and battlefields. India may have been dull for him in the 19th century. He didn't regard as dull the somber days of 1940 when the Germans had overrun Western Europe, were smashing Britain with their stu- kas, and threatened to invade the British Isles. Knowing fully the power of the Nazi armament, Churchill looked across the English Channel and, undaunted, told his countrymen: "We shall defend our island. Whatever the cos* may be, we shall fight on the beaches ... in the fields , . . streets . . . hills; we shall .never surrender." Now the H-Bomb That v-' 15 - -'•- "-r 0 _ since: that time the United States andi Russia have developed the greatest of all weapons—the hydrogen bomb. And on Feb. 15 the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission issued a report. It said the radioactive failout from an H-bomb could cover an r\rea almost as big a.s New Jersey. La r t week Churchill spoke to his ADDS DEPTH—Sculptor Sahl Swarz, of New York City shows a mosaic which he has given a three-dimensional effect He learned the art of glass cutting in Italy and later developed a way to add brightly colored pieces to sculptU£?d objects. This supposedly gives them "color and surface vibrancy." Man Finds Father and Employment LOS ANGELES Iff) — Woodrow Cosby has found a Job—and a father. He had searched 23 years lor Joseph A. Cosby, who was divorced from Woodrow's mother in Charleston, Miss., when the son was only 3. •• Yesterday the son, who is 36, found his father's name in the Los Angeles telephone book. He called him. "Did you have a son named Woodrow?" he asked. The reply was yes. Woodrow was soon reunited with his father, a restaurant cook. The son, by chance, is also a cook. The father hired him. , Woodrow had been in Los An- geies three times be/ore during hte nationwide hunt for~his father. Before he went to work he placed another phone call—to his mother, Mrs. S. J. Mascari, Memphis, Term. "My journey is ended and I'm happy," he said. School for Sale RENO, Nev. Uf) — Reno's oldest schoolhouse, built in !887 at a cost of $1,400, was put up for sale yesterday.

Caruthersville News By SONNT SANDERS • A one-act comedy presented by he high school's speech class was elected Tuesday afternoon to be ntered in the district drama con est at Southeast Missouri State College in Cape Girardeau on tfarch 25 and 26. The play was presented in an countrymen again, this time in the House of Commons. He said nothing then about fighting on hills or beaches or in the streets. He talked of the power of the bomb. The age of man-to-man fighting had long since passed. Now a tew men in planes, releasing bombs, could destroy a nation. And Churchill, like a man cornered and searching for some* escape for mankind itself, said: "What ought we to do? Which way .shall we turn to save our lives and the future of the world?" Then, still undaunted, after reviewing the American and Russian achievements with the new bombs, Churchill made it plain Britain wasn't going to sit like a duck on a rock if a hydrogen war started. He wanted In on that too. He snid Britain would make hydrogen bombs.
