EDITION VOL Associated Preu United Full Least MASON CITY IOWA MONDAY FEBRUARY 16 195 7e Copy Paper at Two lit One Mans Opinion A Radio Commentary By W EARL HALL GlobeGazette Editor BROADCAST SCHEDULE U300 Sunday WOI Ames UlU Tuesday WTAD Quincj Thurs City 91U Food and Education X LIFETIME OF TRAVEL ing has left me with the conviction that mankind is con fronted with two allimportant problems One of these is food the other is education and I 1 wouldnt know which lo rank first Some would say and with quite a bit to support their con tention that if there was an adequacy of education not simple the food prob lem and most other problems would be more or less auto matically solved that things just naturally fall into place In olher commentaries Ive dealt at some length with this consideration Ive pointed out that without education there can be no such thing as true selfgovernment Without educa tion to back it up the word de mocracy is something pretty shallow and meaningless By the same token sound edu cation for all the nations and all the peoples of our world would come pretty close to sounding a death knell for war as a final resolvent of interna tional or civil controversies Educated people just wouldnt resort to anything as stupid as war EMPLOYING this same ap proach we could conclude that sound education would auto matically bring a solution lo the food would mean applying science and scientific techniques for the production of ample food to fill the bellies of the hundreds of millions who go tq sleep hungry every Of only slightly less import ance edu cation ould mean a proper use of Ihe food at hand The problem of produc ing enough food is only slighlly more complicated and frustrat ing than the problem of provid ing a healthful diet in the midst of bounty India Indonesia China and other thickly populated areas of the world are plagued by shortage partly because there are so many mouths to feed but mostly I verily believe because they havent been willing to adopt modern methods and tech niques in farming Ive talked about this many times before On this occasion I plan to deal with the American problem of making a blessing out of our plenty Our
