MASON CITY IOWA TUESDAY OCTOBER 24 1941 Copyjvrhii Piptr ConsUU rf Two No II Aiioclated Prcu and United Press International Full Wires Big Red Ablast raising outcries How JFK views the world e An era full of tension By DAVID WISE New York Herald Tribune News Service Increasingly in his public statements Presi dent Kennedy has revealed to the American public his per sonal mood in a time of great national crisis In no one speech has the President said everything that is on his mind But taken to gether Kennedys recent ad dresses and press conferences provide a fairly clear picture of how he sees the world from the lonely burdensome vantage point of the presidency It is a grim and detached assessment of the times and it can be summarized about like this Kennedy does not believe there will be a war over Berlin But mankind may yet destroy itself The American people are liv ing in the most dangerous time in history Atomic weapons are spread ing and Americans are destined to live in tension peril and un certainty for the rest of their lives For some months since the Berlin crisis began boiling in the weeks after his Vienna meeting with Soviet Premier Kennedy has been saying these things in private to friends advisers visitors and influential citizens But increasingly in recent weeks he has begun to say them in public In Berlin the President fore sees a long crisis ahead But he feels that Khrushchev is now convinced that the United States would go to warif the Soviet Union chokes off Allied access to West Berlin Consequently he does not believe that Khrush chev will take this ultimate step President Kennedy predicted long years of crisis and turmoil as far back as his inaugural address Jan 20 but at the same time the administration nur tured high hopes when it took office of achieving a radical improvement in relations with the Soviet Union A nuclear test ban treaty was thought to be possible In part this was due to the normal optimism of a new team taking over at the White House In part it was based on private inform atioo such as the impressions brought back from a visit to Moscow last Novem ber by Walt W Rostow an as sistant to President Kennedy for national security affairs And in part it was based on such concrete gestures as the Soviet release of the two im prisoned RB47 airmen Vienna was an eyeopener for the President Khrushchev was intransigent on every outstand ing EastWest issue except pos sibly on Laos The President and his advisers came away from Vienna knowing that they faced a new Berlin crisis that the hopedfor reapproachment with the Russians was not to be and that it would be only a matter of time before both sides resumed nuclear testing And so the postVienna mood of the President has emerged with increasing clarity We move for the first time In our history through an age in which two opposing powers have the capacity to destroy each other and while we do not intend to sec the Free World give up we shall make every effort to prevent the world from being blown up Those arc the words of Presi dent Kennedy in October 1961 after nearly nine months in of fice and nine months of almost crises But U S to bear brunt Heavy fallout in Russia WASHINGTON UP The Soviet Union is getting a back fire of radioactive fallout from its mammoth nuclear explosion US Weather Bureau scientists reported They said the fallout was carried on winds blowing south to southeast overthe USSR Since it was likely the bomb was fired high in the atmos phere Robert List chief of the bureaus radioactivity proj ect said only a small fraction of the fallout would sift down immediately that the greater portion of it would be sucked into the stratosphere and would come down perhaps next spring But considering the size of the blast said List the amount of radioactive debris blowing over Soviet farms villages arid towns would be appreciable US scientists said however that in the long run the United States will get most of the fallout Nobel priiewin ning chemist Dr Harold C Urey said the fallout will be unpleasant but not at all N ews in a nutshell FROM OUR WIRE SERVICES New British Asub LONDON Lord of the

school and university stu dents marched out of classes and paraded through streets in a doz en cities in protest against the Soviet blast British pacifist and philosopher Earl Bertrand Russell 89 led a banthebomb delegation to the Soviet Embassy in London to de liver a protest letter and said aft erward We had a nice inter view but in the end it was too much for the Soviet charge daffaires Russell said the Russians told him there would be no fallout from the blast But British De fense Minister Harold Watkinson said the British government is taking steps to make substitutes for fresh milk which might be contaminated from the Soviet blast West Europes newspapers were almost unanimousin their con demnation of the explosion as an act of terrorism without any sci sntific justification Japanese were alarmed by a warning from experts there that highly radioactive rain and dust from the blast would reach iheir shores around Friday The Tokyo government called a conference of scientists to decide whether the expected levels of ra diationwould be harmful to hu mans The experts sought ways of coping with water and vegeta ble contamination Western observers said the ex plosion of the big bomb could have been due to an attempt by the Russians to speed their cur rent atomic test series to head off an avalanche of adverse world opinion According to this view the Kremlin thus could accept the inevitable protests from abroad without having to bear the additional burden of further outcries against planned Russian nuclear experiments On the inside Editorials 4 Society News 19 Clear Lake

repel retaliatory strikes which the United States promises to unleash if the Soviet Union makes war The danger from submarine launched missiles looms large for the USSR At least four atomicpowered

two of them may be enrouta or getting ready to head for sta tions off the northwest European coast Eventually 10 Polaris soats will be assigned to the mis sile watch The underwater test Monday was a
