The prosecution held that Debs speech discouraged military enlistment and promoted insubordination in the ranks. Debs, speaking in his own defense, argued the validity of the Espionage Act in light of his right to free speech. On Sept 14, 1918 Debs was convicted and sentenced to 10 years in prison for violating the Espionage Act. The conviction was unsuccessfully appealed and in April of 1918 Debs entered the West Virginia prison system and became Convict Number 9653. Two months later, Debs was transferred to the Atlanta federal prison. In 1920 a man in a jail cell in Atlanta, Georgia ran for the office of President of the United States and received about 3.5% of the vote. That man was Eugene V.

This US army propaganda film, bordering on black humor, is from the 1950's and focuses on the safety of atomic weapons. Most was shot at Camp Desert Rock, Nevada, the Headquarters of the A Bomb test site, where by 1954 more than 30 atomic devices were tested. An army instructor tells his troops that they are there to participate in an atomic manoeuvre. He tells the troops that they can live through an atomic attack and live to fight another day. Soldiers map out ground zero. Soldiers dig the foxholes in which they will stand during the blast. The instructor at the chalk board takes his troops through the explosion step by step. tape ii25 of 111 series

HOME

There is a graphic of the fireball as the instructor explains the various colours the cloud will go through. Then he explains how the nuclear cloud will rise up to fifty thousand feet and just drift off. He says "watched from a safe distance, this is one of the most beautiful sights ever seen by man!" He explains there are only three things to think about: blast, heat and radiation. Then he explains, with the aid of a graphic, what these three elements do and how to avoid injury. When the blast comes he advises to get down on the ground fast to avoid debris coming at you at hundreds of miles an hour. He goes on to say that you have 5 seconds per mile before the blast will reach you. tape ii25

Now to the heat. The fireball is about a thousand times hotter than the surface of the sun. He says it takes a half a second for the heat to reach you from the detonation site a mile away, but if you are wearing clothes, you won't burn! And, here's some more good news; if you're in the shaded part of a foxhole you are "perfectly safe from the heat of the bomb"! He saved the best news until last: "Radiation is the least important of the three effects". He tells the boys that radiation only spreads out about a mile from ground zero. He explains that 1 inch of steel or 4 inches of concrete or 5 inches of dirt will cut out about half the radiation you would otherwise receive (no problemo). Half of this radiation occurs during the first second of detonation, and the other half during the next 89 seconds. So you've got 1 second to hit the ground, miss hundred mile an hour flying debris, throw 5 inches of dirt over you and bend over and kiss your butt goodbye. tape ii25 of 111 series

The class is dismissed and next morning the soldiers rise at 'O' dark early to begin a 30 mile orientation drive to ground zero.
