The meeting Is described as an "institute on the control of atomic energy" At about the tarn time, the United Nations Commission Commis-sion on Atomic Energy wiU be meatina too. At th "institute" in Washington, authorities will explain Just what fft atomic energy can have on your life If you ere one of those who aren't going to be destroyed by It I was going to say "one of the Inokv ones." but TOU won't DO 1UCW. If atomic warfare starts, even if you . .mnnif those whose lives are soared. We have all heard lot of dire nnh(i about what the atom bomb can do, If it once get on the loose. Also, what wonders atomic energy can perform in building v.t4.. amriit. if it la confined to oeaceful and productive activity. But by tar the most Impressive Awtnnt on the aublect came to me In the repeated words of a scientist .nvin not scientifically, or for Quotation, but very Intimately of tils own private thoughts, ana us own personal plans. He baa lectured great deal on tha mhiect of atomio energy, and to one of those intimately concerned arfth its development Suddenly, one day be realized that bo bad better make eome personal plana to pre-rare pre-rare for the future in this atomic tga of which he bad spoken so much. His work is near one of the several prime targets of any enemy bombs that would os groppea. This pamphlet caught my eye and beld K. It was a reprint from Look magastne enuuea "Tour Last Chance." sen may have Been it. It moved me so much that I lost couldn't help talking abont It en the air, and offering to pay for the first 500 pamphlets requested, providing stamp was enclosed. I limited the requests to people in the following categories: Insur ance men, salesmen, real estate men, teachers, clergymen, mechanics, mechan-ics, utilities workers, scientists and merchants. I did this, first, because I wanted to limit the number of applicants and second, because the article contained con-tained specific Instructions as to what the people In the groups named could do to help prevent a cataclysmic war.

A year later General Larimer crossed Cherry creek, took possession of some cabins, snd named the settlement Denver City. In honor ot Gen. James W. Denver, governor of Kansas.

Soon Denver was the Mecca of tha Mountains. A printing plant wss brought from Omaha, and the Rocky Mountain News made its debut (1859). Soon thereafter the Herald was founded.
