PAGE TtfO BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS WEDNESDAY, MARCH 16, 19BB Chahces Are U; S. Will Use Atomic Weapons in Any War By JOHN M. H1GHTOWER " WASHINGTON (AP) — The chances are that any future war in which the United States becomes engaged will be a,n atomic one. whether it is a big or little conflict. Whether use of small, special-purpose atomic weapons would lead to the ultimate employment of hydrogen bombs is still a wide-open question. USED TO IT Only Bolivian Indians are able lo work the country's tin mines, located at altitudes of 13,000 feet or higher, because of the thin air of the Andes. Secretary of State Dulles told his news conference yesterday he thinks that as the effectiveness of precision atomic weapons increases it lessens the likelihood that weap- pons of mass destruction would have to be employed. He argued that World War n saturation bombings resulted from inability to destroy military targets precisely. President Eisenhower, however, told a news conference last January that he felt it was not possible to draw a sharp line between tactical and strategic atomic weapons. .Generally, tactical weapons are relatively little bombs for use against military targets while strategic weapons are the city-killers. The value of atomic bombs was frequently debated in the Korean War. The United States decided against it. Officials generally argued that the weapon was not suitable against an enemy hidden in the mountains of Korea. The essence of what Dulles said yesterday was that atomic weap- ns in the shape of artillery shells and small bombs for precision attack are becoming conventional equipment for U.S. armed forces. He said he imagined that such weapons would be used in any major U.S. military activity. Then he advanced his countertheory Nixon to Get Irish Shillelagh As a Gavel CHICAGO «P) — Vice President Nixon, presiding officer of the Senate, is going to get a different type of gavel, a genuine Irish shillelagh. The shillelagh and 26 pounds of Irish turf — the Quid Sod — were flown to Chicago yesterday by the Irish Fellowship Society. At the society's annual St. Patrick's Day program tomorrow night, the turf will be enshrined under glass on the speaker's table until the oatory starts. Then it will be laid on the floor. Ben Regan, club president will present the shillelagh to Nixton, who is to address the society. Roy Me/Coy Honored At Texas A. & M. Roy Lee McKay of Blythevillc has been .designated distinguished student for the fall semester, at Texas A. & M. College. A distinguished student must have a grade point ration of 2.25 or better and have no grade below that of a "C". that the development of little bombs decreases the likelihood that big ones would have to be used. • His presentation of these two ideas was designed to serve two purposes. First, he was trying to get across to the Chinese Communists a warning that if they attack the Quemoy and Matsu islands and the United States gets in the fight, it may very well use atomic weapons against military targei.-?. Second, he was attempting to leviate deep fears among Allie nations of a hydrogen bomb con flict. THEATRE On W.
