MONDAY, MARCH 14, iuper-Weapons Threat Softened National Military Establishment Tries To Avoid Undue Alarm By Klton C. Fay WASHINGTON, March' H. (if,— "~: military Is alarmed nl the ptib- s ides ot the mass-killing cnpa- pinlies of germ warfare, atomic «mbs. gnkled missiles and other iew weapons. Over the weekend, II sought to pxplatn the limitations anrt capabilities of Ihc first of these. The |iational military estiiblishment Is;d a formal statement, followed a news conference, oa biological warfare—a top niilllary secret Tor the past three years. Those views pvere expressed: I 1. Biological warfare—The steiil- Jiliy Implanting of genus In people, •animals or crops—Is practicable, tun The conducted on limited scale now. Jis a "most potentially important •weapon." I 2. Because this is true, (he Unit- Bed States must be on guard against •the use of germs in a war or "bio•logical sabotage methods before u •declaration nf war tins been made." I 3. In the research field of bac- • tcnal war, Ihe United Stales is even •with or perhaps ahead of any other • nations. Secret studies have been • directed by committee "X" of the • Research and Development Board. 1 4. But- "There is no factual balms for extravagant claims o! tlie • existence ot a biological super-wca- Ipon" which can kill hundreds of Millions of people. 'Ollicials familiar with the pt.Mcy I to debunk fantastic public ideas iROOtit germ war, A-bombs and oth- ler weapons agreed that two basic I national psychological situations I prompted the decision to "educate" [the public: I 'At To try to undo some of the I American public's over-confidence I in certain victory through reliance I on only such weapons as the atomic, I bomb, germ warfare and guided | missiles. (B) To allay hysteria and panic I among American populations should I this country be attacked with an> [of those weapons. The effort now I is to explain that these are not "absolute" weapons, but have definite limitations in the Dumber they can kill or the damage they can produce. There are means of minimizing their effect. BLYTHEVTLLl! (ARK.)'

M>>—Under a firry I sky, the big transport slowly berth- ' ed at a vast Brooklyn pier mni° with many Inmneis. A crowd of 400 stccid silently on the pier to welcome home the 0,785 silent passengers on the ship—sailors done with the sea, soldiers done with war. An open h;>(ch disclosed a te.v of the flas-draned coffins Iliat thronged Ihe vessel. It was I lie Barney Kirsthbaum, named for tho first American sea captain to iivo his life in the second World War. And then this took place: An Army band played the nation, al anthem. There was a moment of silent prayer. Tall, gray-haired Col. Edward R. Martin, a chaplain who spent S5 ; months overseas, spoke briefly. He i s;ud the world scon forgot the sacrifices of brave men but that a \ greater power beyond human understanding "comforts us in our ; hour of need." "We tnus t realize." said the chaplain, "thai these men gave their [ lives for Irecdom—liberty not Tor ; on'; individual nor .for one nation, but for the entire world, for all races and creeds. In order that they may call their home their own." There was n final prayer, mid Ilir-n the sounding of "taps." As it. ended, far down the pier another hUBlcr took up the notes. He sent them back, faint and low. and every echo tore open n human hc;ut. The pic- was too small to hold •so many old oiemorles. The band struck up "Onward Christian Soldiers." The honor guard and a detachment of troops marched out in formation. The ceremony was over. The crowd walked to tlie edge of I Ihe pier and looked down into the j open hatch of Die vtv.sel. It happened suddenly. A stout, j middle-arcd woman sank lo her i knees and began to sob. "My baby. oh. my bnoy!" She brrnme incoherent: 1 "1 used t o wave poodbye to the ! ships when they sailed. My baby, uii. my baby!" Her grief ran through the group like a widening smf, wetting the eyes or other mothers, wives' and sisters. Some brake down and their men folks had to lead them away, I" a few minutes: more the long pier wiw empty. It was dusk. A liglij wind stirred the long banners—ihc flags of every state and every tichting unit that saw action overseas.' And" then men moved aboard tlie vessel to take off Hie clear! ulm hud made the loiip voyage home. This same scene has taken place on this same pier many limes in tile last two years. But there will be lew more such homecomings on this .scale. All but some 20.COO ol the 160.030 Aiiu-iican dead of World War Two who are liclns returned have already come back.
