Nato Two-way Street Called Essential

Editorial

An Obligation to Pursue

. . . The U. S. must have a sensible space program, whether it wants one or not. To fail to keep up with new developments in this field would be disastrous, and any Administration which permitted a lag should be condemned. We must know what the capabilities of space are, and we must retain our proficiency in using them.
