10 Golesburg Register-Moil, Golesburg, III. Thufsdgy, Aug, 22, 1963 Peril Palls After Long Exposure By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP)-Curbstone comments of a Pavement Plato: People can't live frightened forever. A constant peril either drives them out of their minds, or they become numb to it. That has happened in the case of the threat of nuclear warfare. The pall that cast a shadow over the future of mankind with Hip first atomic explosion at Alamogordo, N.M., less than two decades ago, is still as dark as ever. The menace is even mightier That's the price off o new Hammond Organ at the Charles S. Gamble Music Co. 564 N. Henderson St. as more nations unlock the secrets of atomic power, and as the strength of the bomb grows from thousands of tons of TNT to millions of tons of TNT. Let Diplomats Worry But the bigger the bomb becomes, it doesn't seem to frighten people more. They seem to prefer to let the diplomats wrangle over the problem. Remember the reaction that gripped America a few years ago when Russia first exploded an atomic device? We were nearly scared out of our wits. People stocked emergency supplies of food and water in their homes. Some stocked their cars also. Some bought hideaways in the country so they'd have a place to flee to. Some even joined churches to get right with the Lord — just in case. Some quit drinking milk, fearing it had become a health danger because of the contamination of strontium 90 from atomic fallout. Panic Abates Gradually, as nothing much happened — except that more and more test bombs burst in the atmosphere over isolated desert an ocean areas — the panic abated. Life returned to routine. The ordinary man resumed his ordinary worries — how to find love in a dubious world, how to raise his kids, how to get up the rent money or meet the mortgage payments.
