Nuclear Predictions 'Of 1956 Still Valid fc.v tfttss 'tic\vS WASHWfifON (AP) - ft was 14, i9<lG, when Bernard Sa- iiich, U.S. delegate to the new tJ.N. Atomic Energy Commission, stated the American case for the future in the atomic age, or the future as it seemed then. : Less than a year before, on Aug. 6, 1945, the atomic age opened with the dropping of the first bomb on Hiroshima. "We are here," Baruch told the commission, "to make a choice between the quick and the dead. "Behind the black portent of the new atomic age lies a hope which, seized Upon with faith, can work our salvation. If we fail, then we have damned every man to be a slave of fear." r He was a prophet beyond his own imagining. He outlined the American plan: An international atomic development authority to ' control all phases of atomic development. Then for 17 years the nations talked about it but did nothing. For the explosion at Hiroshima did more than destroy a city. It not only filled nations with fear of the bomb but with a profound misgiving about one another that was more unnerving than their fear of the bomb. Reject Plan The Russians, to start with, wouldn't buy. the Baruch sentative wHb reached ,the tost baft agreement with the Russians ast Week, tried to allay the sus- jicions and the puzzlement of hi* audience: There's ho secret agreement n this thing, -ho gimmick in 11. nd secret, understanding." Then, as if to be sure , cions weren't washed away in op- imism, Harriman said the agreement, on a test ban didn't 'remier Khrushchev had plan, They had no bomb of their own then but they wouldn't let the United States have ^a monopoly if only until the Baruch plan became a reality, if ever; And by 1953 they had developed their own hydrogen bomb anc went on from there. In time the British and French, too, had their own explosions, the French far behind the British. Then last week in Moscow, af ter all the* years of talk and dis trust, the United States, Britain and Russia agreed not to have nuclear tests Tn the atmosphere in outer space or under the sea It was a very limited agreement. They couldn't agree to give up testing underground. And they didn't agree not to build more weapons, although the United States and Russia already have enough to eliminate themselves and probably half of mankind. Even 'so the Moscow agreement, .limited as it was, could be considered a first step perhap toward more far-reaching undet^ standings: Thus it might seem the other nations, with or without the bomb, might have a sense of exhilaration. It didn't happen. The repercussions from Hiroshima were stil' loo intense. In this country there was a feeling of gladness that at least something had been accomplished after .17 years but it was dulled by this first, immediate reaction: What are, the Russians up to now? • Historians, looking .back upon this trembling time, may feel that man's pathetic condition in 1963 was summed up unintentionally Wednesday when W. Averell Harriman addressed a luncheon at the National Press Club here. Harriman, the American repre- suspi- menu abandoned his hope of commtmizing he world. He.rriman said he hadn't. For that reason, even if the agreement is approved by ft 1 Cou- p-ess where there are many misgivings, Khrushchev will be vatched In this country with just ns much distrust as before. Naturally, he will be equally wary of the West. That this distrust of one another s not exclusive with the United States and Russia was' quickly demonstrated by France and Red China. Neither will sign the agreement. China, in fact, called the whole thing a "fraud." They are no more willing to let the United States and Russia have a monopoly on nuclear weapons than Russia was to let the United States have it in 1946 when Baruch m'ade his speech. Both will try to make their own weapons.
