POWER FOR PEACE
Full Co-operation In Controlling Atomic Bomb PLEDGE BY MR. ATTLEE Rec. 1.30 p.m. LONDON, Aug. 12. "After I issued a statement on the day of the release of the first atomic bomb, the vast and terrible effects of the new invention made themselves felt and the last of our enemies offered to surrender," said the Prime Minister, Mr. Attlee, in a statement from No. 10, Downing Street. "The events of these tremendous days reinforce the words of that statement, to the effect that we must pray that the discovery which led to the production of the atomic bomb will be made to conduce peace between nations, that instead of wrecking measureless havoc upon the entire globe it will become a perennial fountain for world prosperity.'" "President Truman, in his broadcast on Thursday last, spoke of the preparation of plans for the future control of the atomic bomb and of his request to Congress to co-operate in order that its production and. use may be-controlled and its power made an overwhelming influence for world peace. It is the intention of His Majesty's Government to put all its efforts into the promotion of objects thus foreshadowed, and it will lend full co-operation to that end."
