3. To encourage the proper use of nuclear power in agriculture, medicine and industry, and
4. To request the United States to proceed in the Geneva Nuclear negotiations in order to reach a first step agreement on the banning of nuclear weapons testing so that the nuclear powers may write a Treaty acceptable to other nations for the protection of mankind from fallout and from the further spread of nuclear weapons,
