Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-16,Lethbridge, Alberta at-THE LETHIRIDOE HERALD - W«dnMdl». J«nu«ry 16, 1*74 luB I    ------ ^ ^ Some say perambulator bigger hazard than a bomb ^    ...    ... j    aII *kAtr tlll/'hiirMt ¡H jlllDilfit M^IHV —IH 1970 tll6 Chrlftlan Science Mnnitor WASHINGTON, D.C. -There are those in Washington who think that the perambulator is a more dangerous weapon than the atomic bomb. There are also those who think that oil is just the curtain raiser of many shortages as world population swells. Lester R. Brown of the Overseas Development Coun* cil is <H>e of the first: He warns that world population will double in 36 years at present rates, and that some glo^l resources are running low. C. Fred Bergsten of the BnxAings Institution is one of the second: He says that the United States should start aiding the “third world" (underdeveloped) countries fast. The world’s present population is 3.9 billion, Mr. Brown said recently, and he expects it to double by 2006. He does not see enough food to go around by then unless than any other factor," he says in his book “World Without Borders." Mr. Bet^sten says that the “third world" has things the United Slates needs (like Arabian oil) but that America is something is done, and he says ' not cultivating it. hlngi    . industrial raw materials seem to be running low, too. ‘'Uncontrolled human fertility may pose a greater threat to our future well-being The United States is the least responsive to third-world needs of any industrialized country at this time.’' he charges. “U.S. help is small in quantity, and getting smaller. Its quality is declining. It lags far behind the policies of Europe and -Japan. The administration and cMigress must share the indictment.” Both men wrote their comments before the current oil shortage developed. Both see other shortages likely.    . Both say America now must think globally; above aU they warn that the United States, with six per cent of the world’s peculation, wiU find it hard to continue to use oiehalf of the world’s material resources. Starvation came in 1973 to crowded parts of Asia and Africa. The United Nations has designated 1974 as “world population year,” with an nternational conference in Bucharest in August. Many think there’s a global race between food and population. Here is the score for the United States on 13 basic industrial raw materials required by a modem economy, as set down by Lester Brown. —In 1950 the United States was dependent on imports for more than half of only four of these 13: aluminum, manganese, nickel, and tin. -In 1970 the list had increased to six, as zinc and chromium were added. —In 1985 the list Will probably be nine, with iron, lead, and tungsten added, -In 2000 the United State» will be import-dependent on each of the 13 (adding potassium, copper, and sul-Lr) with the exception of phosphate. n EATON'SLady Fair yamknit with a brand name you can rely on Tapestry frame for needlepoint 23®® Wooden floor model stands about 27" high.
