Nome, Alaska, Friday, November 16, 1951
With the advent of winter’s first snows, many of
Nome’s children are observed scooting along the
streets, riding belly-buster style on their small coasting
sleds, pulled by their ever-faithful companions and
friends — their dogs.
It has come to our attention that several of these
children have been hooking the sled towline directly
onto the dog’s neck collar, and in one instance, onto a
choke collar. This, of course, constitutes cruelty to
animals and should not be tolerated.
The native-style dog harness is both inexpensive
and easily made. It consists of a few yards of webbing,
and is available at any of the stores. We are sure that
any of Nome’s old-time dog mushers will be glad to
assist the children in making harnesses for their pets.
ADB Open Forum Had
Distinguished Speakers

gave a resume of the strategic
minerals of this area. His talk
was received with much interest
and, in many cases, much sur
prise as to the number of minerals
and the amount available so near
at hand.
The ADB reported their active
part to date in assisting to procure
government funds for tin develop
ment; in the same way, their
present work is helping the bis
muth operations in the area.
Under the Power Devtlopment
Panel, a power site for North
western Alaska received favor
able mention by the Panel’s chief
speaker, Mr. Morgan, of the Bu
reau of Reclamation. Mr. Morgan
recommended that the Salmon
Lake project be first on the I
agenda for the Second Division.
The overall picture of the fu
ture of Alaska was most favor
able from all sides. D. E. Skinner
of the Alaska Steamship Company
summed it up with:
“The old slogan ‘A satisfied
customer is the best advertise
ment’ applies in Alaska. The first
thing interested businessmen
want to know about a new field
for expansion is how they, will be
treated once they come in.’’
Mr. Skinner was enthusiastic
in his praise for the aims and past
work of the Alaska Development j
Board and stated that this com- ;
pany has worked from the start
with the Board in developing Al
aska’s tourist industry.

Truman Will Urge
More “Fair Deal”
In Coming Message
“ O
KEY WEST, Fla., </P)— Presi
dent Truman declared yesterday
he is drafting a “state of the un
ion’’ message, to be sent to Con
gress in January, committing the
Democratic party to campaign in
1952 under his “Fair Deal’’ ban
But, under a bombardment of
questions from reporters at a win
ter White House news conference
he refused ter comment on wheth
er he intends to support General
Dwight D. Eisenhower for the
Democratic presidential nomina
tion or whether he will seek it
He said that at no time did he
discuss domestic politics with
General Eisenhower in their re
cent conferences on the western
European defense program i n
Under questioning, the presi
dent said he would ask further
changes in the Taft-Hartley Act
which has been the frequent tar
get of union leaders, but he would
not disclose them at this time.
The president also told the con
1. Re French President Auriol’s
suggestion of a “Big Four” meet
ing to relieve international ten- j
sion: his views haven’t changed
that the United Nations is the
proper forum for settling world
2. He still has hope that an Am
erican - French - British proposal
for reduction of atomic and other
weapons will get favorable Rus
sian reaction eventually because
of the Russian people’s longing
for peace.
3. That Republican Governor
Earl Warren of California, who
announced for the GOP presiden
tial nomination Monday, is a fine
man. He said he once said Warren
was a Democrat and didn’t know
it, and that that still goes.
4. He did nert believe the Kor
ean war should be an issue of the
1952 campaign.
Mistrial Ordered In
Negro Assault Case
mistrial was ordered today in the
rase of a Negro sharecropper ac
cused of assaulting a 17-year-old
white girl by allegedly leering at
her and chasing her.
The mistrial was ordered by
Judge J. A. Rousseau after the
jury, com posed of four negroes
and eight whites, deliberated for
about five hours yesterday and
today and reported it was “hope
lessly deadlocked.”
Foreman C. J. Long told the
court that the jury had voted 10
for conviction and two for ac
quittal. He said two negro jurors
had held out for acquittal.
The girl testified that Ingram
frightened her after leering at her
and following her across the com
field, although he did not ap
proach closer than 68 feet to her
in her flight across the field.

Rotary Learns About
Atom Blast Effects
One atom bomb of the type re
leased over Hiroshima has the
blast effect of 20,000 tons of TNT,
Professor D. Hendershot told fel
low Rotarians at the Club’s con
tinuing series on the atomic age,
at Thursday’s luncheon. Twenty
per cent of the energy is released
in the first second, creating heat
and shock waves that, within a
quarter mile of the blast center,
are totally destructive. Beyond
that, to a distance of about half
a mile, only reinforced concrete
buildings are able to stand up
under the blast.
Strangely enough, the human
body is able to stand more than
the shock of the blast, even di
rectly underneath, but at that
point, the temperature runs from
a million degree centigrade, near
the blast’s center, to 7,000 degrees
centigrade, or almost 20,000 de
grees Fahrenheit at its largest
outside expansion. If perchance
that was not effective because of
some covering until the heat were
dispersed, ionization effect might
be. The greatest danger from the
blast is the secondary dangers Of
falling timbers and flying glass,
the somewhat grim instructor re
minded his class.
Clarence Filly, local CO of the
ACS, and the Rev. Rolland Arm
strong, field representative of the
Presbyterian Church in Alaska,
were guests of the club.
Rotarians voted to meet Wed
