Work For Peace Must Be As Earnest As For War FEARSOME WEAPONS PLANNED Rec. 10 a.m. RUGBY, July 22. "The nations must organise for peace with the same deadly earnestness that they organised for war," said Field-Marshal Jan Smuts, Prime Minister of South Africa, replying to a great welcome home demonstration for him in Pretoria to-day, says a correspondent. ■» "Even the terrible air bomber of to-day and V bombs and rockets," he said, "are but clumsy anticipations of far more deadly weapons now being planned, though not yet figuring in munition programmes. This new form of universal suicide has to be drastically dealt with and without loss of time." He regarded the San Francisco Conference as the major, if not the most important battle of the war, that had to be won if other victories were not to come to naught.
