IOWANS NEIGH I O H S HOME EDITION a Copy One Mans Opinion A Radio Commentary By W EARL HALL Managing Editor We All Have Some Sea in Our Blood POR weeks at least and I think maybe for months a little vol ume has been peering down at me in V most inviting way from an endposition on the shelf for cur rent books in my library The other night I could stand up un der the invitation no longer This t on Fund is to report that 1 was well re warded in the reading The 230page book including Index is titled The Sea Around Us Its a fascinating story about the dominant feature of our planet from the time of its inception Its the story of the oceans And perhaps the most surprising the woik is that its the work of a woman Rachel Carson While she had help from many au thorities in the field of ocean ography geographers geologists archaeologists and other specialists in the wide scope touched on in the book its essentially Miss Carsons own handiwork She establishes herself as a competent scientist and a skillful writer One of those who gave assistance to her and shows up at several places in the book is Thor Heyer dahl of Oslo Norway Does the name register Hes author of KonTiki another book about the ocean which has had spectacular success within the past year And Isnt itstrange how great hasbeen the popularity of books about the sea in recent months Circumstantial Evidence s Call for Repeal TH Gets Wild Cheer NEW YORK inCheering dele gates to the American Federation of Labor convention rbared pound ed tablesand yelled approval Mon day when repeated his belief that the Taft Harlley actshould lie scrapped A iampackedr audience in the ho tel where the AFL is holding its convention interrupted Stevenson for nearly a minute in a wild ova tion Stevenson previously urged re peal of the Jaw in a Labor Day speech at Detroit But the AFL K u he voicedthe same senti ment Monday Democratic presidential nominee was Jntroduced by AFL President William Green who said Thereare many of us sitting in this hall who believe he is thenext President of the United Stevenson blasted Republican claims that he hasadvocated com pulsory arbitration of labor dis putes It was charged that I had em braced the principle of compul Because nobody was on hand to witness the process the account of how the Earth acquired an ocean must be pieced together from many sources Rocks and fossils are among the best historians of those times estimated at around two billion years by Miss Carson In cases where there werecon flicting hypothesesthe author ex ercised her prerogative of select ing the one which appealed most to her among and had greatest sanction those ina positionto judge No reader is required to go along with her against ar prior convic tion But the story she tells will cause any such person to reex amine his prior convictions To me one of the most absorbing subjects dealt with in The Sea Around Us was that of tides There were tides in the infant earth were told long before there was an ocean Molten liquids of the earths surface were subject to the pull of the sim in just the same way that the oceans are today with this difference There was no land thento block the tidal move ments Moon Cast Off by Earth And therein lies one of the most mindarresting propositions ever advanced From those tides the moon may have been born Under that hypothesis the moon becomes the child of the earth The story goes thus in Miss Carsons words Physicists have calculated that after some 500 years of steadily in creasing tides those on the side to ward the sun became too high for stability i and a great wave was torn away and hurled into space But immediately of course the newly created satellite became subject to physical laws that sent it spinning in an orbit of its own about the earth There are reasons for believing according to The Sea Around Us that this sloughing off of the earths crust occurred after there had been some hardening instead of during the partly liquid state There is to quote from Miss Carson to this day a great scar on the surface of the globe This scar or depression holds the Pa cific Ocean Here she quotes some geo physicists as saying that the floor of the Pacific is composed of ba salt the substance of the earths middle sections while all other oceans are floored with a thin layer of granite We immediately wonder ob Miss Carson what became of the Pacifics granite covering and the most convenient assump tion is that it was torn away when the moon was formed Before Oceans Were Formed All of this if we accept the hypothesis was not only before the advent of life on earth but before the oceans had appeared About the hot earth were dense layers of clouds No sun could get water would turn to steam from the earths heat i Then came the cooling of the crust and an age of rains of rain that poured into the waiting ocean basins in which ultimately was produced that mysterious and wonderful stuff CONTINUED ON PAGE 2 2 Fugitives

authority on the subject of embraces But if he wrote what he said he had not read what 1 said My proposal was and is that if Congress sees fit to direct the President to intervene a labor dispute it should give him the authority to try among other things to have that dispute re ferred to arbitration I did not say he should be given the power to compel arbi tration I recommended a flexibili ty of
