Not only is public opinion un happy about the influence largi corporations appear to have in government, but there is also a growing feeling that the compa nies are being allowed to avoid paying taxes at a time when in dividual wage earners have to dig deeper into their own pock- ets. It all appears to be part of erosion of confidence in the power structure which has been made most evident in the Denv ocratic party primary elec- tions held so far. At least part of the upsurge of Senator George McGovern is laid to his effective use of charges that fax reforms are overdue and the fact that he is identified as a liberal candidate outside the establishment. Alabama Gov. George Wallace has been even more effective among blue-collar workers and others with his attacks on allegedly uneven tax burdens. More fuel has been added tire building up around the corporations and the govern-in e n t a 1 establishment with newspaper pictures of cabinet officers, senators and others boarding private company executive planes to make what would be expensive trips If they took commercial flighli. But the circumstance which has given President Nixon and his administration more than practically anything else outside the immediate problems in Vietnam has been the focus of national attention on the aclivilics of one of Ihe biggest corporations in this country, Internalional Telephone and Telegraph.

"No other phenomena casts a darker shadow over humanity than the rapid population he said at a Western Hemisphere regional meeting of the International Planned Par- enthood Federation. Mr. Pearson, who headed a World Bank committee that won widespread praise for its report on the need for development as- sistance three years ago, partic- ularly emphasized the negative impact of population growth on developing countries. He said the world's industrial nations especially must increase their contributions to funds de- signed to promote population control. He was supported by Julia Henderson of London, executive secretary of the federation, who told the meeting about mil- lion Is channelled through Ihe federation's programs. SPEAKS TO 200 DELEGATES Mr. Pearson told the 200 dele- gates from about 35 countries in North and South America, Latin America and the Caribbean, even it countries would donate funds equal to what they mobi- for "one great weapon of war or for one rocket to the moon" it would help in one oof Ihe most serious problems now facing the world. This also was emphasized by Georg Borgstrom, a Swedish professor of food sciences now at Michigan State University at Ann Arbor, Mich.

In Latin America, for exam- ple, the number of hungry chil- dren was growing fantastically each year. Cities continue lo grow at aim-mini; rales Ihal outstrip efforts of technology. Gaps between (lie hungry and the satisfied were growing. A daily ration of -11 grams of protein was necessary for n per- son to be considered ndcqualcly fed. The average consumption in Ilic U.S. was 70 daily compared with about 20 grams in Latin America. "We nre evading realities" to believe Ihal Ihe developing milions can grow as Europe and America did during their golden from 1850 on, Dr. Borgs- trom said.

They also make for a cool-running tire with little heat build-up. And the less of that in a tire, the better. Because with intelligent driving, the tire will Reality. Muscle Car made it necessary f or_tire manufacturers, including Uniroyal, to develop special kinds of tires for them. These car own- ers usually know they need them be- cause of the style of driving they're like- ly to do.Plusthef act that a lot of money has been spent tell- ing them they do. Well, there are a lot of car owners who don't need them. They'd be simply wasting their money on this kind of tire. They need some- thing else because of the kind of car they own and the kind of driving they're likely to do. And Uniroyal has developed tires espe- cially for them. Among them is the Uniroyal Fastrak 4-Ply Polyester. (Obviously a name only an engineer could love.) It was created for the family sedan Four full plies.

Also, unlike a lot of tire mate- rials, polyester virtually resists (What happens The office and back. The cottage when you've been driving for a while and the tire's a little warm, and you happen to park. A lot of tires form flat spots where the standing weight of the car forces clown on them.When you startup again later, the tire's a little out of shape and it starts bumping as it turns, and making noise.) So along with strength and du- rability our Fas- trak 4-Ply Poly- ester also gives you a smooth and noise-free ride. Then there's our exclusive tread design. It gives our tire skid-resis- tance and pull-away traction equal to that of a belted muscle car tire. And gives you some peace of mind knowing that those qualities are there if you ever need them. All of which brings us back again to "only buy what you re- ally do need." If it sounds like the Uniroyal Fastrak 4-Ply Polyester just might be it (in spite of its you'll need just one more thing.
