Atom Bomb Not

. Latest developments on the
atomic bomb front:
1. In Cambridge, Mass., Dr.
Vannevar Bush, a leading author
ity on atomic energy, said the
A-bomh 1 nn . ahmlute
weapon." He said the bomb Is
only "part of a vast and intricate
armament, and much of the na
ture of that armament was spread
out for all the world to see in the
last war and is known to many
technlciana in Russia as else
where." Bush, president of the Carne
gie Institution of Washington,
spoke at a convocation of students
and faculty of the Massachusetts
Institute of Technology. He said
there was no doubt Russia could
build and is building a formidable
machine, but he added:-
We can meet that threat if we
are strong; we ean, in fact, meet
it without war, for those in the
Kremlin recognize strength if
they recognize nothing else."

chapters In various communities
throughout the state, whose pur
pose it will be to study the local
situation as regards conditions
leading to mental illnesses.
Melvin L. Murphy, executive
director, Mental Health associa
tion, was here from Portland
Monday night, to help launch
such a chapter, with the help of
local doctors, teachers, minis
ters, civic club representatives
and other public spirited citizens.
He explained that the organiza
tion seeks to educate the public
to the many problems involved
in dealing with the mentally ill
and advance methods for rooting
out local conditions that may
lead to many of these illnesses.
Local problems were brought
to light by those who attended
the meeting and possible solu
tions were advanced.
Mrs. Claude Baker, Douglas
county welfare office director, in

"A youngsters life, is influenc

with his parents," said Dr. E. J.
Wainscott, county health officer,
who saw the need for training of
parents as would be provided by
a mental hygiene society such as
advanced by Murphy.
Dr. J. E. Campbell cited the
case of a woman who had 17 sub

mental hygiene association that
would deal with similar types.

American Public Remains Deaf To
Warnings Against Socialism
' ' By BRUCE BIOSSAT
There is no evidence the American people want socialism. Nor
Is there any convincing sign they believe the country is heading
Indications are numerous that
they do not take seriously repeat
ed warning from many quarters
that the all-powerful state is just
around the corner. The recent
New York senatorial election, in
which big government was the
issue, affords the latest example.
That election, in the view of
seasoned observers, . suggested
strongly that there In little po
litical capital in these warnings
of a rush toward socialism. Ear
lier this year some conservatives
In and out of the Republican Par
ty seized upon the word "stat
ism" to express what they deem
ed to be the philosophy of big
government. But now the Gallup
poll reports that more than two
thirds of the people have no idea
what the term is supposed to
The voting majority may or
may not be light In choosing to
ignore the alarms. After all, no
one really knows where .he na
tion is heading. And that is not
a condition peculiar to our time,
although admittedly trends may
be more difficult to measure ac
curately in this confusing age.
But suppose there is real dan
ger to freedom in the present
course of government. How could
the peril be made understand
able to the people? .
They have listened so long and
so often to cries of doom that
their resistance is high. Terms
like "socialism," "regiment-
atlon, "dictatorship," "big gov
ernment," and "statlsm" fall
on deaf ears.
The latest to sound warning Is
James F. Byrnes, former secre
tary of state. For the second
time this year he has spoken out
In opposition to what he con
siders the ruinous trend of pre
sent-day government. Yet theie
is slim likelihood Byrnes will
win many converts. Those who
will hail his speech are those
who agreed with him before he
Byrnes said some pretty strong
things. Examples: 'Too many
people are thinking of security
instead of opportunity.- They
seem more afraid of life than of
death. . .Big government is
more dangerous than big busin
ess. Little government can regu
late big business. . . .but it s
difficult to regulate big govern
ment." Yet even at best his words
have a too familiar ring. They
carry an echo of speeches long
aeaa and lorgotten.
Imagine younself possessed of
the power to foresee the future
and predict perhaps that we are
indeed moving toward socialism.
