Mr. Ball makes a sensible comment.
It is all right to be willing to discard the
atomic bomb and to share our information
about atomic energy but, before doing so,
we should be certain that no nation, shar
ing our generous gesture for peace, is tak
ing advantage of our sincerity of purpose". ‘

THE KEY WeST CITIZEN
WITH the help of * handful of

walk, he deckled, would do him
’ good. So he started off afoot to
ward his apartment house.
He had covered a hare two
blocks when footsteps fell in time
with his and figures appeared at
each shoulder. The pressure on
his right side could only be a gun.
"Okay, chum. Take it easy.
You're going for a short ride.”
A large black sedan with the
usual drawn curtains drew up
beside them and Rush’s escorts
urged him toward the door that
opened for them. Rush got in
with no show of resistance. It
would have been foolish to fight
back. In the car a loose black
cloth sack was thrown over his
head and the motor roared into

Rush was shoved out of the car
