Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - August 1, 1961, Mason City, Iowa North Iowas Daily Newspaper Edited for the Home VOL 99 MASON CITY GLOBEGAZETTE The newspaper that makes all North lowans neighbors Associated Press and United Press International Full Lease Wires MASON CITY IOWA TUESDAY AUGUST 1 1961 7c a Paper Consists of Two SectionsSection No 154 Is war lawful for Christian Theologians debate evil By LOUIS CASSELS United Press International The great majority of Chris tians throughout history have held that war is an evil which may be justified under certain conditions as a tragic necessity This doctrine was based on the asumption that wars could be limited in scope and that they might have good as the defense of freedom and would outweigh the carnage and suffering The advent of nuclear weap ons has compelled Christian theologians lo make their own agonizing reappraisal of Ihe ancient rationale for a just war Most of them have concluded that allout nuclear war would entail horrors of such incalcul able magnitude and offer so little hope of any good out come that it cannot possibly be squared with the teachings of Christ BUT AT THIS point the theo logians divide into two groups One group believes that while it would be immoral to use nu clear weapons it is permissible fact stock pile them as a deterrent against their use by another power There is wide public support for this position and the Chris tians who expound it are in no danger of being pilloried as dangerous radicals THE OTHER viewpoint is far less popular Indeed it may im press many Americans as being almost as impractical as advis ing men to love their enemies or to turn the other cheek when struck Because it conflicts so sharply with prevailing national atti tudes this second viewpoint rarely gets an attentive public hearing It may get one now however because of a document which has just been published by the Photofax FEELING THE this lady had watched her waistline she

good if there is adequate warning and lowans know what to do following the alert said Frank P Williams chairman of Iowas Civil Defense Administration Taking the most pessimistic look we will get at least 15 minutes warning of a missile attack and one to two hours warning of a bomber attack ac cording to Williams Williams also is assistant divi sion commander 34th division Iowa National Guard Militarily he continued these first attacks should be against our retaliation efforts and for Iowa this means against SAC at Omaha THEREFORE WE have from 15 minutes to two or three hours warning with the probability of of the only nuclear fire being at SAC in the initial phases He pointed out wind patterns would carry fallout across Iowa Fallout however travels at the speed of wind As most of us in Iowa know from following storms across the state it could be several hours as you W progress away from Omaha before the fallout would reach various parts of Iowa the Cedar Falls businessman commented In effect this means even in the WEBER OmahaCouncil Bluffs and southwestern Iowa area there may be up to t vv o or three hours warning time and progressively across the state up to six or seven hours said the civil defense chair man HE SAID WITH this kind of warning and a knowledge of what one needs to do to defend ones self most of the people in Iowa could survive a nuclear attack Gen Williams explained they need only know that eight to 12 inches of concrete 12 to 18 inches of dirt two or three inches of lead or any solid mass similar to this such as brick or tile will protect them from radiation He said going down in the ground will help some but a protective cover will improve their odds materially In most homes if 12 inches of dirt were placed on the floor and the family went to the basement they probably would survive if they had two weeks food and water supply Williams commented He said the family also needs to be able to listen to CONELRAD with or without power IF WE COULD CONVINCE the people of Iowa that by having sand dirt or solid concrete blocks on hand to put over their heads or to shield them from the ground level around we would have almost 100 per cent survival Williams declared In response to a question Williams said the transfer of civil defense from a separate department to the department of defense is a move that cannot be evaluated until after the department of defense has had an opportunity to change the status of civil defense I believe the reason for this move is most mili tary men believe that if massive retaliation is a deterrent it can only be a deterrent if our civilian population is in a condition to survive the first punch and permit retaliation to be effective If this situation is to exist and if our people are to survive it is urgent that a better civil defense program be undertaken Williams asserted SHOOTS ice Britt 40 Smackover Ark lies chained on the runway of the airport at Chico Calif after seriously wounding a
