Probably no American locality has been the site of more warning about nuclear warfare than the academic and scientific city of Cambridge, Massachusetts. So it is not surprising to find its its city council taking a lead in civil defense measures beyond designating routes of evacuation from a holocaust. The council has directed the civil defense department to enlist citizen help toward preventingm a holocaust -- by, for example, supporting arms control. It reasons that prevention is the only effective "civil defense" in light of the estimated destruction of Cambridge within seconds by a single bomb.

But what can citizens do? First, inform themselves, says the council in a booklet that lists sources for further information. Second, let their leaders at every level know of their concern and their conclusions. The council hopes its plan will ripple to other cities. But no citizen anywhere should need an official invitation to work for peace.
