WEDNKSDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 1»M "FLYING CAMEL" TESTS NAVY'S EARLY WARNING SYSTEM-This Is Die PO-UV, modified Lockheed Constellation, winch will be used by the Navy in extensive tests of a new radar technique called the Airborne Knrly Warning system. The plane has two large "radome" humps midway along the top am! bottom of its fuselage. The system relies on altitude to overcome the basic limitation of 'shipboard and surface radars—their inability (rj "see" over the optical horizon, because radar beams travel only in a straight line. nal Boyle's Column- H-Bomb Takes Joy from War, May End World's Problems NEW YORK—f.'l'j—The .pushbutton war of the future may never- come for a very simple reason—it doesn't hold much prospect of fun. Wars in the post have offered excising change from the humdrum of peace to a large part of the population. The terror, boredom and danger of the front lines affected only a .small proportion of the people. The civilians at home, unworricd by fear of death, found the nnnoyance.s of rationing ami higher taxes more than made up for by their enlarged sense of self-importance. They were cnught up by a thrilling feeling of unity that carried Iheni out of their ordinary small frustrations. The factory worker became "the soldier behind the sol- am! send it whistling away in a pHotlcM rocket. Tiic soldiers wi'll be technicians, the generals will corn- maud armies of machines instead of rum. And what fun will there be for the civilian population? None. War will become a matter of population endurance, ns each side waits for its cities to disappear. A great is Ihc harvest of millions nen over hundreds of vears. Why burn up that Jong gain o? oil-' ture and concrete in one tremendous flash of million-degree hydrogen heat? If nations of think this over—and there are signs they will—the H- bomb may turn out to be a great blessing, it win surely never be dropped if everybody realizes that dier at the trout." Women found an j war Is no longer fun for anybody, escape from Ihc petty world of f or profitable far anybody, but death :iousp)iold chores. They found they or ruiti for practically nil. could hold a riveting machine a.s Then peace can become the pleas--" -- "-- ' - ant. neighborly thing it ought to be. It could even (urn out to he fun. The U. S. Bureau of Reclamation had 3,600 miles of power lines In operation In 1949, and 3.000 miles under construction. well as the next guy, and war opened to them a whole new round of racial activities with a purpose — helping sell bonds, entertain USO -•lulls, collect blood, roil bondages. Yes, war made everybody feel useful and necessary. And few saw Ihc blood on the battlefields far away. Recent wars have been less and ess rewarding, however, for the men who actually carry the guns. In the. old days victorious warriors looted owns and took their pick of the enemy's pretty womenfolk. I wouldn't say this didn't happen on occasion !n the last world tt'fir. but It iras the exception rather han the rule. Our Doughboys us^d o Joke that the last thing the retreating Nazis did before pulling' out of one of their cities was to stick up a sign saying: "off limits j to all allied troops." i And on n notional scnle, victory has only brought more responsibility. As soon as yon tiult kicking n foe. you have to start lending him mono}', shipping him food, and rebuilding his homeland. It seems to me that the development of the hydrogen bomb has squeezed the last small ounce of fun out of war. We are In the twilight of the man-flown bomber and the finpcr- pullcd ride'trigger. Military leaders warn «-e haven't reached the push button stage of war yet, but we will within 25 years. Of what avail Arkansas Man Held For Jewel Robbery MEMPHIS.
