A COMPREHENSIVE NUCLEAR TEST BAN
Considering the increasing number of nations which have exploded nuclear devices and still others seeking to secure materials and equipment from the nuclear powers, which could lead to further proliferation of nuclear devices; and
Noting that, despite the Partial Test Ban Treaty of 1963, both the United States and the U.S.S.R. have increased the pace of underground nuclear testing, and
Urging both the U. S. and U.S.S.R. to demonstrate to the rest of the world a real commitment to ending their nuclear arms race by taking a great step toward facilitating world disarmament, and,
Believing that such a step will reduce environmental hazards and that direct financial savings from reduced weapons development can better be directed into humanitarian, health, and food production programs, now
Therefore, be it resolved that the American Ethical Union calls upon the President of the United States, the State Department, and the Congress to take action to approve, negotiate and support a Comprehensive Test Ban Agreement, and further, that the United States encourage joint action with the U.S.S.R. toward mutual acceptance and support for such an agreement.
