Excerpt from Survey Graphic, 1945, Vol. 34
Wonders wrought by science in a period of production miracles, Which will change our postwar lives an introduction to a series of articles.
War casts A grim ledger. ON the red side fall the casualty lists, with their incalculable totals of lost talent, energy, and leadership. But' in paying this great price, civilization gains not only the essentials for victory but immeasurable advances in discovery and in the application of new knowledge.
Today's headlines carry word of secret weapons, of mysterious ways of dealing death and destruction. These gains on the debit side of war's ledger are not new. They are the result of two decades or more of exploration and discovery in the labora tories of many nations. They represent mili tary and industrial advantages that, without war, would not have come for many years. But, too, they represent vast potentials on the other side of the ledger - the side of man's conquest over the forces of the uni verse, of happier and more secure ways of living on this planet.
