Gives You That Secure Feeling Defense Against H-Bombs The only defense against H-Bombs is World Peace. The British Labor Party is seldom united on any major issue, but it is united against Uncle Sam on the question of the H-Bomb. Our friends in the Japanese Government are trying to develop solid representative institutions on the American pattern, but they are in a difficult parliamentary position on the H-Bomb. France, Italy, and Western Germany are counted as our allies in the Free World, but they, too, are deeply troubled over the implications of our H- Bomb. By and large, the trouble is the same. They are ajl afraid. So, in sober truth, are we. "" We know that the devastation which can be wrought by a single H-Bomb is staggering. One such experimental bomb wiped out an entire island at Eniwietok .last year.

An air raid utilizing these weapons might start the kind of chain reaction „scientists dread. In all decency and in the name of God and humanity, there appears to be only one intelligent answer to this menace. It is the answer of Christianity and of Godliness in all other religions . . . universal peace. We must not omit any step which could be even remotely helpful in the effort to establish peace. The alternative is too frightful to contemplate in a world which should be on the brink of a new age of productive advancement capable of dwarfing the achievements of the past.

"Our present status," says the Fairbanks News-Miner, "is literally an insult to American citizens. We can ndt vote for President of the United States, and we can not elect our own governor. "We pay more taxes per capita to the Federal' Government than the average citizen of the U.S., yet we havte no representation, in Congress ... here in Alaska, we live at the whim of Federal agencies, and exist according to the will of Congress. We are disfranchised, helpless- American citizens living under h form of .oppression almost as disheartening ana" tyrannical as that which brought about the 'Boston' Tea Party, and the .glorious American Bevohition of 1.776." No doubt the Hawaiians feel just as warmly on the subject, and with equal justice . . . except_that the Alaskans who have seen Amlericans. since 1867, .have had. more tim,e.to come to a boil. !

" - "• *'• Tlie superior ratings werte received in orchestra, band, girls' and boys' and mixed chorus events in the B-l jgrtouji for schools of 250 to 400 students. These ratings make th?. five groups eligible to participate in the state convention, to be held April 24. •Mr. John Wheeler Is director of instrumental • music at th e - high school and Mr. JameS Lotze directs the vocal music: Some 2,500 students from the five . county district including Stark, Tuscarawas, Carroll, Columbiana and Jefferson counties competed for the superior ratings. Each competing school must present two numbers before the judges: a required number and a number selected by the group itself. In addition, each b and must perform a warm-up number which may toe either a quick-step march or a chorale; The performance of a 'third number for orchestra Is optional. Each group is also required to play an unknown number at sight. These numbers are presented in the presence of three judges who grade the organization as to their playing abih'ty. As the directors point out, these contests require a considerable amount of time to pre- pare for and it is only through the cooperation of the students, teachers and parents that the school can maintain its h i g h standards. All o'f the students participating in the various music groups learn 'the importance of working together and these musical experiences all together help to give the student a better understanding of the music and enable him to appreciate it more fully. Schools participated in the contest according to size. The only other B-l schools in the county to receive superior rat. ings were Jackson and East Canton, in the Band competition. |R.
