Experts will be mobilized to apply atomic energy to the needs of agriculture, medicine, and other peaceful activities. A special purpose will be to provide abundant electrical energy in the power-starved areas of the world.1 PLANE OF HOPE This was the Eisenhower Atomic Energy Pool proposal which lifted the UN General Assembly, and with it the world, to a plane of hope and high purpose.1 Before the world, President Eisenhower pledged the United States to help solve the fearful atomic dilemma of this age; to find a way by which the miraculous inventiveness of man shall not be dedicated to his death, but consecrated to his life; to guarantee thai lhe world will not be consigned to the hopeless futility of a belief that two atomic colossi, Russia and the United States, are doomed malevolently to eye each other indefinitely across a trembling world. The Eisenhower proposal is not merely an attempt to reduce or eliminate the use of atomic materials for military purposes. It is not enough to take this awful weapon out of the hands of soldiers. It must be put into the hands of those who will know how to strip its military casing and adapt it to the arts of peace.1 If the fearful trend of atomic military build-up can be reversed — as the Eisenhower atoms-for-peace plan gives great promise that it can — atomic energy can be developed into a boon for the benefit of all mankind.1 If the entire body of the world's scientists and engineers had adequate amounts of fissionable material with which to test and develop their ideas, the capability of peaceful power from atomic energy would rapidly be transformed into universal, efficient and economic usage. The Eisenhower atom pool proposal will do just these things, by enabling all the nations presently developing atomic energy to pool some of their resources, to dedicate some of their strength to serve the needs, rather than the fears, of mankind.1 The Eisenhower proposal holds out a At left, the United Notions General Assembly December 8, 1953, durino Presid.,..
