Day Jr., Samuel H.
December 1977
Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists;Dec1977, Vol. 33 Issue 10, p4
The article reports on the elimination of the specter of nuclear war and the establishment of international control of atomic weapons for the attainment of peace. The appeal for the establishment for such control was issued by the Atomic Scientists of Chicago making people realize that all wealth and economic security is useless if the nation continues to live in dread of sudden annihilation. Fighting against nuclear war is still the most urgent business of mankind today and it is no less necessary at present than it was in 1945.
