IT'S A R6CE TO WALK Atomic Subs Seen as Answer To Thick Ice of Polar Region By Kl/rON' C. FAY WASHINGTON LTi — The leagues of thick polar sea ice which stand between the northern rims of the Western Hemisphere and Eurasia v may be no barrier to the atomic submarines the TJ. S. is now build- Iner. That was made evident today by replies from the Navy to ques- mersibtes in which the crew • as I But an article written for Coi- well as the boat can remain decp down for days, weeks or possibly months. , v The northern approach to the mainlands of Russia and Canada, for example, always had been been closed by the great areas of frozen -seas or unyielding pack ice through which no craft could force tions about the nuclear engincd its way—until the advent of long submarines it is developing—sub-1 range planes. Protestant Leaders Reaffirm ^Separation of Church and State Hy KDWARD O. ETEIELL DENVER L?)—Leaders of 30 Protestant churches today reaffirmed traditional separation of church and state but asked their 35 million members to live by Christian "principles and halt a drift of American government from religious .tenets. They called for more religious education in schdols and colleges but said parochial schools .should Nearly half i receive no government aid. They mesage deals demanded a halt to religious and racial discrimination. They eneour- ngcd church members to seek political office as a way to halt • corruption. '• In a formal message to their home churches, .clergy and lay leaders backed up statements by members of President-elect Eisenhower's official family tliat America can lead the way to lasting peace only by showing that freedom works in this country. ( The message was presented at the concluding sesion of the bien-. nial General Assembly of the National Council of Churches of Christ in the U. S. A. Officials siiirt it would be adopted formally this afternoon with only a few minor changes in wording. ^ The message represents thoughts expressed in six days of almost continuous conferences here and the experience of the two years of existence of this largest U. S. church organization. It mirrors the statement by Lutheran Bishop Otto Dihelius oi Berlin last night that "communism will be t. conquered ' only through the .Christian faith." Bishop Dibelius thanked American churches for their relief work and support. Activities, the message says, must be expended through missions anri '.he United Nations It parallels words of two other speakers last night: Elfan Rees of Geneva, Switzerland, adviser or refugee affairs to the World Council of Churches, who said, "The church is in a life and death strug glc for the soul of Europe and It c own existence," and Dr. James H Robinson of -New York who hole be found lo make the pupils of American schools aware • of the heritage of faith upon which this nation was established. ... "In some constitutional way pro vision should be made for the in culcation of the principles of reli gion, whether within or outside the precincts of the school, but always within the regular schedule of pupil's working day." Nearly half of the 3,000-worded relations be twcen church and state. The re nutinder restates that the counci is no super-church, that it is onl> a means for united, church action nd thnt the whole church move lent must be refired with th tissionary spirit. "While church membershl ands at nn all time pe'ak in th istory of our country, there- ar tore people in the nation who hav o religions affiliation than UJOE •ho profess a religious faith," th icssage says. It lays out a three-point religiou rogram: • 1. Deepen spiritual life throng caching, prayer and Bible stud> 2. Widen the area of enure esponsibility by encouraging la ctivily. * 3. Increase the quality ange of church unity at all level The message also endorses th icw Revised Standard Version he Bible. Some sects outside th :ouncil have prote.sted H. The me ;age b"ays such new translatioi ire necessary to take ad van tn j new light from scholarship a Christians "partly responsible" fo they , have put their faith it "money, schemes and weapons' instead of God, The message follows the spir! of a resolution passed yesterday urging that presidential inaugura 1 tion day, Jan. 20, be made a -da> of prayer for divine guidance fo .Eisenhower. But it doesn't go as far as council auxiliary — the Unite Church Men. They urged com pnlsory Bible reading in publi schools. ."The moral and cultural atmo sphere in a school, and the attitucl the viewpoints, and the characte of the teachers, can be religious nrid exert a religious influenc without religion being necessaril taught as a subject," the nieasag states. i "On the other hand, a way must ! WILSON NEWS By Mrs. B. F. Boyles omer Wullin, chief of the Bureau Ships, spoke cryptically of the )i 1 it y of ato mi c subm a r ines to unch guirtea missiles with atomic! arheads and then slide silently encath the waves "or ice" to re- ipear at another point to launch nother attack. A reporter who asked Navy of- cials about this was told: "It is possible for even convcri- onal submarines to operate under ce. Since a conventional subma- ine's submerged endurance is mi ted. by its batteries, and it lust have air for operating its ngines to recharge its batteries, , has a limited endurance for un- ,er ice operation. Can Operate Under Ice "The Nautilus (first of the itomic powered boats to be tartcd), which will be independent af the earth's atmosphere, will, herefore, be able to operate under ce for longer periods of lime. It Hakes no difference whether the ce is solid or mushy as long here is sufficient depth of water beneath the ice to permit sub marine operation." (The Arctic Sea apparently ha; >lenty of water beneath the ice except possibly for some areas near land masses. Recent sound ngs have shown 14,000 feet o water at the North Pole.) Wnllen mentioned that the Nau ;ilus would be able to dive decpe than any present, conventional sub marine. Navy officials, in rnpl to a question about this, said cau tiously that 'greater depth for th Nautilus, as with any other submarine, could be made possible by making her pressure hull stronger through {he usfe of greater weight or greater sfeel strength." The atomic power 'plant will require no air in creating the superheat to produce steam for the propulsion turbine, and thus can remain under water as long as the fuel lasts. This can be a long time—the fission of one pound of uranium releases energy equal to the combustion of 2,600.000 tons of coal. That left the q\iestlon o f how long the crew of an atomic sub- WMU Meets I Twenty-eight me tubers of the Women's Missionary Union of the First Baptist Church met at the church .Monday night for their toyal Service program.
