PAGE EIGHT BLTTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER HEWS TUESDAY, APRIL 19,1958 Carney Doubts Shortness of Any Atomic Conflict KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Adm. Robert B. Carney, chief of naval operations, said yesterday he docs not subscribe to the belief that in event of an atomic war "it would be all over in a few minutes." In an address prepared for Ihe Armed Forces Council here, Carney declared: "I do not believe this is true no matter how terrible the destruction might be. I say this because I do not believe that tough people, on either side, are likely to give up as long as they have anything left to fight with. For that reason the possibility of a drngged-out conflict must be reckoned with. •Consequently. I believe we must lug. Our plans must go beyond an atomic cataclysm with the strongest sense of emphasis and determination that even under those unthinkable conditions, free men still will fight to keep friendly ;eirltory and the sens from falling into the hands of an enemy." Navy'n Mission Cnrney stressed It is Ihe Navy's mission to keep open the sea lanes to U.S. allies and to American forces abroad. He sa.ld "nearly 25 not let the phases of an per atomic struggle becloud our think- strength is deployed in Europe" arid the Air Force has forces from Greenland to North Alrlca. If the Atlantic Sen chain ever was broken. Curnoy added, "NATO and the security of the Western Hemisphere would be gravely Imperiled." Carney added, In discussing the need for a Nnvy, that this Is "not to say that sea-air power was a sufficient force unto Itself." There Is need, the admiral said, "I'or us to maintain strong land- based air power as well as sea power" and "there is a fsreat need for Just land power — the soldier with his rifle, the man whose ultimate Job Is to take control ol the other fellow."

My son, Bill Beall, and shoo- bang being brand new residents, the pastor decided to call. The ;hree small boys were in the yard playing and didn't see the minister when he arrived (which probably Would have been three times worse if they had.) The "middle one," Phil, ran In the house for something and there stood the minister and Phil's mommy with bowed heads and the minister was saying a prayer. It took Phil so by surprise he hollered out, "Hey! What's going on in here?" So I am apologizing to the minister, as my daughter-in-law hasn't recovered from the shock.

Insert wooden skewers (buy them from your butcher) Into one end of weiher. Spread the batter evenly and fry n deep hot fat until brown, about i minutes. Pass the mustard. The kids can do the frying and will thoroughly enjoy doing It. You had better make up the batter, un. es you want to do your spring louse cleaning all over. Boy, a monkey ain't safe no more, 'specially If he's one of the Rhesus monkeys. The kidney from one of them will provide sufficient vaccine under the process developed by Dr. Salk to give three Inoculations to 2,000 kids. This Is a great day for the young'uns, but hard on monkeys. See where striped shirts for men are becoming quite popular. Wouldn't you know It after every man in the country has laid in a new supply of pink ones! Getting as fussy as women-folks or more so.
