MOITHWfST ARKANSAS T1MIS. Ark*m«. Trior»doy, Aprfl M, 1WJ Column B T ITEWABT ALSQP New Y o r k-(/P)-America has learned to live with the atom boob. The final prooi o. i,ii. the (ctariiing of the latest tx- ploslon in Nevada. There wu »' mixed reaction to the A-bomb'i video debut. Taken purely in terms of sound, many viewen found it less awe-irupir- iruj than the vocal chordt of Milton Berle. BEEF STEW I "It looks like a closenp of Jimmy Durante," one spectator commented. Others felt it still had a long way to (0 before it would seriously rival Arthur Godfrey. And some, who dialed in the demonstration late, mistook the gigantic smoke putt for a new kind of cigarette ad. But the mere fact that millions of housewives couldxsit in their living' rooms and calmly watch an atom bomb burst shows how much the public .has lost its fear of this frightful weapon. Even five years ago a show of this kind might have stirrtJ up a storm of protest. People had an unreasoning panic about the atom bomb then. Many parents objected to radio discussions of It, saying it created hysteria in their children. I At that time the bomb was actively reared as a'h-mstrument thai I could and might well he expected to wipe out civilization. It v/ould be interesting to know how many families bought remote mountain hideaways, or secretly stored lood caches in caverns against the possibility ot the outbreak of a disastrous world-wide atom war. It was done; But recently, despite the announcement, of three atomic explosions in Soviet Russia, the national dread of atomic conflict has died down. The scare wave has subsided. One reason is that five years ago it was accepted as a certainty t'.iat a new war would be heralded by a rain of atom bombs. But fighting has gone on for 22 months in Korea without the jmployment of these devastating bombs by either side.. Hope is growing that they never be used again in auger. Springdale Mr. and Mrs. Melvin Kenn and children. Warren and Edith Marie, of Theodore Drive have returned from Maywood, III., where they were called because of the death , of Mrs. Kenn's mother, Mrs. W. J.

Block Phon* 806 Another reason lor the more sensible approach to the problem of the atom bomb is the fact that the population has become adjusted to an uliriosphere n£ prolonged crisis. You can't remain tense lor- ever. People who live on the edge of a precipice gradually get accustomed .to it., Potential danger is always frightening at first. But tfter a time it merely becomes an annoying bore. · Children no longer have nightmares over whether an atom bomb will Jail. They have been .taught in school what to do, and it's just another kind of ^flre drill to them. But they are better prepared .for such a disaster than their parents. Most grownups still haven't taken the trouble to learn w.iat precautions to follow. They are simply tired of the whole subject. "Grain Bow" Damaged Vancouver, B.
