Into the Mail Bag Again pOR quite a while Ive had the notion that I could turn out quite an interesting commentar by going through some of the in teresting letters which reach and all other editors Im from interesting people and draw ing out some assorted excerpts In some cases Ill identify the writers by name and in others Il identify them in only a general way by occupation or in some other manner as the circum stances seem to suggest Ill start off with an excerpt out of a letter from a well known col lege biology teacher a letter prompted by a recent commentary in which I contended that man kinds foremost problem is Too Many People Have you he asked me read that new book by Max Eastman and Rosin entitled The Road to Abundance Nothing to this food problem they feel even though the
