GREENSBORO, Oct. 28 A
natural scientist concerned about
the effect of atomic energy on
the world future yesterday tossed
a challenge to the political scien
tists. Dr. Hubert Alyea. Princeton
University chemist who has at
tracted national attention by his
lectures on the implications of 1
atomic energy, said the chief pro- j
blem at hand is to learn how
to make safe the world in which
there are atomic bombs. He spoke
at Woman's College.
Despite the three-ring circus
atmosphere he created with many
explosions, a trick popgun and
unexpected clowning, the doctor
left a sober challenge with his
"Political scientists," he said,
"should get as busy about their
side of the problem as the na
tural scientists have been in mak
ing the bomb. Their every wak
ing hour should be devoted to
ward making a workable plan.
"For every dollar spent in mak
ing bombs, a dollar should be
used by the political-and social
scientists in bringing about this
safe world. -The more there are
working on it, the sooner the
answer will come."
Dr. Alyea gave his collegiate
audience a simplified demonstra
tion of the workings of nuclear
physics and the processes of
radioactivity. The peacetime uses
of radioactive xays ...in -, business
in industry and in medical re
search have vast potentialities,
Yet, he pointed out, the threat
of the atomic bomb is a realistic
one. He offered a four-point
1. Irrespective of the position of
Russia, an international code of
living must be established by na
tions of the world. This great
undertaking presents many prob
lems to be worked out, but this
must be done.
2. International legislation will
be necessary to change this code
as the world economic positions
3. There must be an interna
tional judiciary to pass on neces
sary problems, such as the de
termination of agressors.
4. An international army must
be maintained to use bombs to
maintain the peace.
"Political scientists' act as if
they have all the tune in the
world. Actually, time is what they
have the least of. It is quite pos
sible that in a decade Russia may
outproduce us in atomic wea
pons. They began hydrogen bomb
research before we did.
"However, with an interna
tional code of living arried at and
an efficiently operating inter
national . machinery realized,
atomic weapons will enable us
to maintain the peace.
It is no secret, Dr. Alyea said,
that the critical elements in an
atomic bomb are two masses of
materials the size of a pair of
fists. The trick and the big
secret is to bring these masses
together in a 1,000,000th of a sec
ond to make the explosion, he

time cannot be considered.
Local draft boards have an
adequate supply of test applica
tion blanks on hand for draft
eligible students. Students are to
mail their completed applications
to Educational Testing Service of
Princeton, New Jersey.
To be eligible to apply for the
college deferment test a student
must (1) intend to request defer
ment as a student; (2) be satis
factorily pursuing a full-time
course of instruction; and (3)
must not have previously taken
the Selective Service Cllege
Qualification Test. -
Another test will be held April
23, 1953 but Gen. Lewis Hershey
emphasized that increasing man
power demands make it important
that each draft-eligible student
who has not taken the test do so
as soon as possible.
Students whose academic year
will end in January 1953 have
been urged to take the December
4, 1952 test so they will have a
test score in their cover sheets be
fore the end of their academic
year, at which time their boards
will reopen and reconsider their
cases to determine whether they
should be deferred -as students.

WINSTON-SALEM, Oct. 28
On the basis of estimated figures
by the Veterans Administration on
GI training, more than a million
veterans are taking this type of
training this fall.
Approximately one-third of the
number, the VA said, are attend
ing colleges and universities,
while two-thirds are in other
types of training below the col
lege level. Included in the two
thirds are veterans attending
trade schools and business schools
and those taking on-the-job and
The number of World War II
veterans in GI training has fallen
off steadily and the number of
World War II men now in train
ing is estimated at approximately
one-half of the number one year
ago. Their deadline for commenc
ing GI bill training generally fell
in the middle of 1951.
Nearly 200,000 of the present
number of GI trainees, or ap
proximately 20 percent of the
total, are young veterans who
have served since the beginning
of the Korean conflict. Their
training is under the so-called
Korean GI Bill, applying to
veterans who served in the
armed forces anywhere in the
world since June 27, 1950.
It can be reasonable to expect,
the VA said, that the number of
World -War II veterans in train
ing will show a continued de
crease, while Korean veterans
will enroll in training programs
in increasing numbers as they are
discharged from military service.
