This article questions whether a complete suspension of nuclear testing is desirable, whatever the possibilities of inspection. It argues that the United States should deal with the health hazard by ending tests which involve appreciable fall-out but that Americans should agree to complete ban only as part of a general disarmament agreement which includes conventional weapons. The desire to avoid a nuclear holocaust and to achieve a lasting peace should be taken for granted in any debate on this problem. President Dwight Eisenhower's announced suspension for one year of all nuclear weapons tests and his invitation to the Soviet Union to negotiate a permanent ban on tests has raised hopes that a big step forward has been taken in the quest for peace.
