Authors of Tail-Safe' Charged by
Dr. Hook with Endangering Peace

Dr. Sidney Hook, the chair-
man of the department of phil-
osophy at New York University,
in one of his very brilliant es-
says, takes to task the two auth-
ors of "Fail-Safe," Eugene Bur-
dick and Harvey Wheeler, and
demolishes their novel that
serves to arouse so much fright.
In "The Fail-Safe Fallacy,"
published by Stein and Day (7
E. 48th, NY17), Dr. Hook calls
it a pity that
"t h e author:
of 'Fail-Safe'
do not see tha
the free worl
can succeed it
inducing t h e
Kremlin to ne-
gotiate sin-
cerely for mul-
tilateral d i s-
armament un-
der genuine
and adequate
controls only
by refusing tc
abandon i t s
nuclear de-
fense system."
Analyzing Sidney Hook
the "Fail-Safe" approach, the
eminent American Jewish philo-
sopher states that "the Burdick
and Wheeler view that full scale
accidental nuclear war, as a re-
sult of mechanical failure, is
`inevitable' is scandalous."
Dr. Hook emphasizes that
"what escapes the authors is
that the MAIN danger of un-
intended or undesigned war,
to which we sometimes apply
the term accidental, is the oc-
currence of the unforeseen in
behavior of MEN, not ma-
chines."
"The irony of the situation,"
Dr. Hook writes, "is that the
very men to whom we are in-
debted for reducing to negli-
gible proportions the risk of ac-
cidental war through mechanical
failure are being maligned by
those who hope to profit by ex-
aggerating the current danger
beyond all reason."
Dr. Hook charges the authors
of "Fail-Safe" with having ren-
dered a great disservice "to the
cause of both peace and free-
dom." He states that "by art-

fully raising and playing upon
the fear that our defense system
and not the multiple threats of
totalitarian Communism is the
greatest enemy we face, it gen-
erates a mood of defeatism and
appeasement. Because of its as-
sertion that the most effective
methods of resistance are the
most dangerous to our survival,
it tends to paralyze the will to
resist."
Critical also of the resort to
the Doomsday Jewish character
in "Fail-Safe," Groteschele, Dr.
Hook deplores the spirit of ex-
citement and apprehension that
was thus introduced.
He declares that "every hope
of survival of a free society de-
pends upon retaining our nu-
clear defense until such time
as the Communists have given
adequate evidence that they will
abide by whatever agreements
or conventions they enter into."
The grave offense of the au-
thors of "Fail-Safe," he states,
is that "it is far worse to ex-
aggerate the risks involved in
the defense of freedom to a de-
gree that dwarfs in the minds
of readers and reviewers the
much greater and more imme-
diate danger confronting a free
and peaceful world."

American and Israeli athletes.
The competitions were staged
