BLYTHEYILLB (ARK.)' COURIER NEWB WEDNESDAY, APRIL 18, 1958 I Does tke H-Bomb Offset Salk Vaccine Discovery? By JAMES MARLOW Associated Press Ncwi Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) — The world rejoices that there is a vaccine for polio but — One of man's oddities is that while he works overtime to make his life longer he also looks for ways to make it shorter. While scientists struggled to find & weapon against polio, others were busy making bipcer and better hydrogen explosives. In the end millions of people whose lives now will be prolonged by the new vaccine may have them unduly shortened by the bomb. A thousand years from now, if there nre any humans left in those days and they have formed a wny to end war, they may look back on these days and wonder: "Why couldn't those 20th century people ever find a cure for the most dreaded disease of nil: pushing.
