April 21, 1954: A photo of a rocket built for carrying atomic warheads appeared in arguing that militaries not abandon small arms, for “nuclear weapons alone are not sufficient,” and that “the threat of nuclear bombardment may deter world wars but it obviously has not deterred small wars.” “It is interesting and noteworthy that in the two most recent crises it was neither nuclear weapons nor air power that played a major role but forces of all arms and services teamed and harnessed to a common goal,” The Times reported, concluding that “security in the atomic age” “must include military power in all its varieties, from lethal punch to tiny tap.” Photo: George Tames/The New York Times
