59 EDITORS is ef series of daily reports by our editor on a trip by air around the world How people live and how they fee toward America are more em phasized by Mr Hall than features By W EARL HALL TANGOON Asian nations are filled to over flowing with human beings But heres one which places more i population near the top of its I list of principal I needs With a strictly agricul tural economy rice and teak j B I m e s e govern mental officials would like to at tract new in W Earl Hall dustries and boost the present population of million to 30 million or so In the early part of our flight from Bangkok to this capital city of about in the southern part of a country just a little larger than our Texas we looked down on what seemed to be a wholly unproductive sweep of land But as we approached Ran goon the waste land gave way to a vast plain goldenhued with a rice crop just now ready for har vest Better Balance Last night I dined with the Bur mese government official charged with the responsibility for creat inga betterbalance in the pres ent economy by broadening its base We had a real community of interest because that is pre cisely what my own state of Iowa is endeavoring to do Nature was rather generous with Burma in providing the raw materials for a wide assortment of industrial products But these have not been developed and for an understandable reason Un til 1948 Burma was a British col ony and it has always been a pol icy of British colonialism to draw raw products from colonies and return them in the form of manu factured or processed commodi ties Thats the way to make col onialism pay Similar Problem This is only one of the many problems facing Burma in con nection with her newlyachieved independence The general situa tion is the same as in Vietnam

authorities have had the good sense to turn to the outside world for technical assistance In the working out of things the United States has supplied far more than its proportionate share of this Americans are helping set up practical systems of road building education health and sanitation services Other nations including Russia have a finger in the same pie Much Inefficiency Buildings formerly occupied by the British have been taken over by Burma for the operation of its republic The government set up consists of a president a par liament of two houses and a cabinet headed by a premier with 21 ministers Here as in the other newly lib erated countries mentioned Ive found some natives who look as kance at the regime They frank ly admit they would like to have the British back with the effi ciency which characterized gov ernmental administration for the century and a half or so before 1948 But that isnt the prevailing 2 More Reapportionment Proposals FILED IN SENATE DES MOINES UP Two more plans for reapportioning the Iowa Legislature were presented Friday There are now four reapportionmenr proposals before the Legislature SenE J submitted new one to redistrict the Senate on the basis of area and the House on popu lation His plan would give the Senate 50 seats the present number with 49 sears representing two adjoining counties and the 50th representing Kossuth County the biggest county in Iowa The other plan was suggested by Sens Jack Miller RSioux City and Alan Vest RSae It provides for a 56member Senate and a 99 instead of 108member House The Senate would be reapportioned on a population basis by 56 members equally among the states congressional districts now eight The senators would be elected on an aMarge basis House membership would be on an area basis with each county having one representative McManus plan would give the House 104 members each representing lowans view Im quite sure The mud dling and general inefficiency in cident to the changeover from subjects to freemen is regarded not too high a price to pay for freedom Man Crushed by Truck Box at Iowa Falls IOWA Iowa Falls man Duane Haan 34 was crushed Thursday afternoon at a
