New York Herald Tribunt News Service NEW YORK For the first time in its history the United States is preparing to take a de tailed inventory of its foreign language capabilities This is to be a painslakin evaluation of a national re source not idle research prompted by scholarly curiosity Educators and government offi cials alike are convinced that the effort is essential to national security They know that the U S is suffering a deficit in trained linguists a chronic shortcomin made acute by the pressure of world politics They know thai the deficit is a luxury the nation no longer can afford and they are trying to do something about it through the foreign language provisions of the National fense Education Act of 1958 BUT UNTIL NOW they have had only a rough idea of the ex tent of the deficit This much they obtained through a hasty threemonth survey conducted last spring by t h e American Council of Learned Societies and financed through a ap propriation from the Office of Education These were among the key facts uncovered by the survey At least 50 languages that are spoken by as many as 2 million people each are not now taugh in any American college or uni versity Fourteen of these language arespoken by as many as 1 million to 42 million persons For many of the importan languages of the world Ameri can educators now have no ade quate instructional materials These include a number of th official languages of t h sovereign nations with which th United States has business 0 diplomatic relations ADEQUATE INSTRUCTION facilities are available for onl four of the needed languages French German Italian an Spanish On the basis of this limite knowledge the Office of Educa tion established a priority 1L to determine what languages should have first crack at eral aid funds Top priority went to Arabic Chinese Hindustani Japanese Portuguese and Russian and sec ond priority to a group of offi cial languages including Java nese the African languages of Hausa and Swahili Afrikaans Cambodian Laotian and other Asian tongues There has been a dramatic up surge of interest in foreign languages but the evidence is confined to bits and pieces of in formation concerning one lang uage one school or one college or university IT HAS BEEN established for example that at least 400 high schools are now offering Russian language courses in contrast to the 16 on record in 1957 that 27 junior high schools are offering the language and that a smat tering of elementary schools have got into the act And there was the report from Syracuse University that all language enrollments had jump ed 22 per cent over last year to the largest total in univer sity history This trend was ech oed in Ohio where Kent State Universityauthorities reported a 36 per cent increase in lang uage enrollments over the same semester in 1956 The largest in per in Rus sian language enrollments At the same time there has been a noticeable tendency among the colleges to restore foreign languages as a require ment for admission On the inside North Iowa News Page 8 Society News 121314 17 Editorials 20 Clear Lake News 22 Latest Markets 25 Mason City 2f 7 AP Phototax HIS FIRST

conference WASHINGTON ft Cranbe ry producers asserted Wednes day that their products now on the market are safe to eat They called on Secretary of Welfare Arthur S Flemming to give that reassurance to the American public Ambrose E Stevens general manager of a cooperative which he said represents 75 per cent of the cranberry crop said canned cranberry sauce now oa store shelves was made from berries harvested in 1958 Neither the Food and Drug Administration nor producers Stevens said have any reason tobelieve that last years crop was improperly treated in any manner with the weed killer Aminotriazole The very careful restrictions made by us on fresh berries also indicate that 10 million rounds of fresh cranberries in grocery stores are also entirely Stevens added the weed killer which has been found to cause cancer in rats have been de tected in some lots of cranber ries This discovery prompted Flem ming to caution the public last week on what he called the possible hazard in eating the fa vorite Thanksgiving and Christ mas season sauce unless it could be identified as coming from a safe area Stevens at a conference called by Flemming presented a fivepoint industry program designed to relieve Americans of any worry A decision by Flemming could come Thurs day Stevens representing Ocean Spray Cranberries said his growers had been forbidden as long ago as Sept 18 to use the questioned herbicide on their cranberrry properties in any form despite approval by the Department of Agriculture foe use after harvest Flemmings stated purpose in setting up the meeting was to hear from the industry a plan to separate the clean berries from those which have been contam inated So far the only method has been painstaking and slow chemical testing of each batch THE INDUSTRY
