The record audience was unusually significant in view of the icy road conditions throughout the area. Fifteen choirs, representing as many churches of all faiths in the area, four high school choral groups and five grade school choruses cooperated in the event Accidents on Streets jure Trio Icy in the interest of helping to "Put Christ Back Into Christmas." Highlights on the program were two numbers by the massed choir combined with the junior chorus, the opening "O Come All Ye Faithful" and the ancient Christmas carol "Glory to under the direction of Donald Stiemke, Lincoln High School choral director. A special treat this year was the inclusion of the junior chor- us, organized and directed by Miss Carol Grau, grade school'J music supervisor.

That figure was slightly over two million tons of TNT. Presi- dent Eisenhower said in his speech Tuesday to the United Nations General Assembly that "hydrogen weapons are in the range of millions of tons of TNT's equivalent." The Bikini demonstration well may help resolve any doubts left after that speech about the need for international atomic accord, although the test was not devised for the primary purpose of giving the world's citizens the "comprehension" of atomic warfare and danger. Planned long before Eisenhower took office as president, it will be another stage of the progressive stepup in hydrogen explosions. The test at Bikini will show what could happen to the United States as well as to Russia in a war with hydrogen awesome argument for atomic peace. The last atomic explosion at Bikini probably will become, by comparison, a puny little pop. The two test bombs used there in the 1946 tests had an energy equivalent to about tons of TNT. An air-burst bomb sank ships, crushed others with the shock wave, set others to burning. An underwa- ter burst sent a" big carrier, a battleship and other vessels to the bottom.
