Treaty Seen as Sfep Away from War WASHINGTON (AP) _ Prcsi dent Kennedy has urged all Americans to join in a historic debate over the nuclear test ban agreement which he called "an important first step" away from a war that could take mor c than 300 million lives in an hour. Kennedy, speaking Friday night on radio and television to gather support for the treaty, said: "It i s my hope that all of you will take part" in Ihs debate "for this treaty is for all of us." "It is particularly for our children and grandchildren, and they hav e no lobby here in Washington," said the President. "This debate will involve mili- tary, scientific and political experts, but it must not bo left to them alone. The right and the responsibility are yours." "The historic and constructive debate" for which the President asked will center around the Senate, which must ratify the agreement by a two-thirds vola. The President did not picture a bright road ahead. He was cautious and grave, He cautioned that the American, Soviet and British agreement to ban all nuclear tests except under ground is not millenium. It will not, he said, resolve all conflicts, turn the Communists away from their ambitions or ciminato the dangers of war. But he called it "u shaft of light" cutting into what had hcoi the darkening pros|.v.;cts of mass destruction on earth—"an important first .step—a step toward peace—a step toward reason—a step away from war." And tho President warned that a nuclear war "would not be like any war in history." "A full-scale nuclear exchange, lasting less than GO minutes, could wipe out more than 300 million Americans, Europeans and HUH- .skuis a.s well UN untold numbers elsewhere," said Kennedy. "And the survivors, as Chairman' Khrushchev warned the Communist Chinese, 'would envy the dead.' " After hih speech, the President flew to his summer place at Hyannis Port, Mass., where today ho will receive u report on tho Moscow talk. s from Undorwcre- tary of State W. Averell Hurri- man, the chief U.S. representative at the negotiations. Secretary of Stale Ucun Husk, scheduled to fly to the Soviet Union next week to sign the treaty, wil| be un huml. While Kennedy went on th c air U> tell Americans how he feels about tUo treaty and future agree- mentw which may follow, Khrushchev did essentially the sam (! iu an interview with the newspaper* Pravdu and I/.vostia. Tho lenders were in ugnwniiniit on thro ( , issues. Both hulled tho pud's international significance; both hinted that it may open tho door to other agreements, und both cautioned that no one should expect miracles. Kennedy acknowledged thul th n trouty is not foolproof, because, there is no sure way of controlling nuclear blasts (k-op in outer space, and because the "escap ( , clause"' neriniU signutorie s to withdraw.
