It will be warmer In the First of Series War Fears on Wane After Summit Scare western Plains and northern Rockies; cooler in the Ohio valley, the northeastern Plains and the upper Mississippi valley. (AP Wlrephoto Map.) In the first of three articles Samuel Lubell, top public opinion reporter and analyst, reveals that the fear of war is diminishing in the U. S. but that many see the need for better defnese. In subsequent articles he will discuss what political effect the summit collapse is having, what the possible future war spots will be, and how the public feels about the changes in the American economy during the past year. By SAMUEL LUBELL The collapse of the summit conference has produced a striking change in the readiness of the public to support a greater defense effort. Since the shooting down of the U2 plane over Russia, this reporter has been systematically interviewing typical voters in seven states on their reaction to the deepening world crisis. three out of four say they would pay higher taxes to do more on defense. Last February, a similar survey showed only one out of three persons willing to accept a tax increase for a heavier defense program. Earlier this year, too, no one to whom f talked saw any close danger of war. Today that dread grips a sizable part of the public. The morning alter the breakup of the Paris conference I was talking with a plumber's wife In Detroit. When I asked how old her husband was, she replied, "He's too old to be called hack into the service, I hope." Son In- Service In Bridgeport, Conn., another housewife remarked, "My son is going into the service. I keep the TV on all day, hoping to hear they've settled something." Their deeper misgivings aw often revealed in thr emphasis they put on their readiness to pay higher taxes for more defense. Some typical comments were: "I want to think we're ahead and I think we are, but I'm ready to do more." "We must be ahead because if be pictured in "On the Beach." One New York City resident said seriously. "I'm thinking of taking a job as a lighthouse keeper in Ireland those bombs." Again In Parma, Ohio, a factory mechanic told of a "rumor spreading through the neighborhood that the Pope had received a prophecy of a war which would last a month and take six months to bury the dead. "My wife couldn't sleep after she heard that rumor" the ma- chanic went on "It got talked of so much the church printed a denial that the Pope had any such On prophecy." Staten Island, old engineer exclaimed in frustration, "Here we're goinR to have, to buy bomb shelters and I can't even afford a car." Fear Slackens In the first days after breakup of the Paris conference nearly half of the persons in- Of those interviewed so far, terviewed thought "war might come in a year or two." This fear has slackened steadily, as the memory of Premier Nikita Khrushchev's anger has receded. By early June my interviews showed the proportion feeling war was coming had dropped to one of every six or! ^ seven' persons interviewed. Some of those who fear war think it may be started by an accident, "by someone pushing the wrong button." Others were frightened by Khrushchev's temper. "He's just like Hitler," remarked a 50-year-old salesman. "Only the weapons are worse." But the majority of people reject a nuclear war as unthinkable. "If thdy use the bomb there will be two countries less," runs a typical reaction. Or, "The Russians know we could Alton and vicinity: Mostly cloudy and cooler this afternoon and tonight.
