Latest farm census figures show he said that Between turn to Page 2, col. 7 Washington i a president Eisenhower and the National Security Council Are understood to be recasting the nation s Basic military political strategy. The idea is to make the strategy conform to the spreading development of Small atomic weapons and an official conviction that limited nuclear warfare will be possible in the future. Whatever understanding May have been reached Between russian and soviet leaders at the 1955 Summit conference that a nuclear War is impossible is regarded Here As no longer valid. Brush fire conflicts it is presumed that Russia As Well As the Western Powers would like to avoid a world engulfing atomic holocaust and will make determined efforts to that end. However the belief that any East West atomic conflict would Lead to total devastation is giving Way Here to the idea that the existence of Small nuclear weapons will make a limited military clash or Brush fire conflict entirely conceivable in the coming years.

The invention and progressive improvement of Small nuclear weapons in the last three or four years has changed this concept to the extent that it already is possible to imagine a nuclear War fought for very limited objectives and in a limited area. Long argument this probably Means less emphasis on retaliation of the massive variety and More on meeting the communist Chal Tum to Page 2, col. 2 Philip is. The Tweedy set 4. H.
