standing of the subject Paul G Hoffmans new book World Without Want oughtto be the most authentic treatise yet turned out on the subject of foreign aid Its from the Harp er Row Press It was Paul G Im proud to number him among my most loyal personal friends who converted the Marshall Pian from an idea into a living reality None but the unreconstructed rebels in oppo sition to foreign aid would dis pute the claim that todays highly prosperous Western Eu rope is a fruit of the Marshall Plan charted and administered by Hoffman Until he accepted that assign ment Hoffman had been identi fied with the automotive indus try as head of the Studebaker Corporation Since then how ever he has retained an active interest in extending aid on businesslike principles to the economically backward nations of the world This volume World Without Want has been written from a background of almost 15 years of continuous contact with the subject during which his oftrepeated contention has been that no foreign aid can be sup ported or defended on any other basis than that of selfinterest He is presently managing di rector of the UNs Special Fund The overall problem Hoffman recites in his opening chapter is that two out of every three people in our world today eke out a marginal existence strug gling against the four malignant curses of our times Hunger Poverty Ignorance and Chronic 111 Health I hope he states to con vey to you in this book some sense of the seething unresl among people in the scores oi underdeveloped countries I have visited some hint of the intensity of the peoples deter mination to better their condi tions and some idea of their understandable impatience an impatience which is one oi the most potent forces in the world today In a panoramic sweep Hoff man acquaints readers with the and the ignorance which prevail in lands of bur geoning population His purpose is to accentuate his contention that it doesnt have to be so something CAN be done about it By way of explaining and per haps justifying American con cern in this broad field the former South Bend man harks back to the days when our young nation was the benefi ciary of both capital and tech nicians from older lands Brit ish capital for example built some of our first railroads In the long view accord ing to Hoffman the 100 under developed countries are a great new economic frontier If per capita incomes in the under developed world were to be liftedin the sixties year by year by only 25 per cent ex ports to these countries from the industrially advanced world would more than double Some four and a half million Jobs in US now are dependent on foreign trade of which aboul t third relate to underdeveloped Turn to 2 Please North Iowa Partly cloudy and mild Monday night and Tues day Lows

Congress will con vene Wednesday facing immediate battles over its rules and longrange proposals by President Kennedy for income tax cuts and new spending programs British attack denied Claim US defense fails LONDON news papers said Monday swift British jets slipped past US defenses re cently in a mock Hbomb attack that could have wiped out major cities including New York Wash ington Chicago and Los Angeles US and British officials denied the report Four British newspapers said the exercise was carried out by four Vulcan bombers about two months ago The bombers fly up to 600 miles an hour A spokesman for the North American Defense Command in the United States termed the re port a lot of nonsense The British Air Ministry first said an exercise took place about two months ago but declined to say whether it was a success Then after some apparent con fusion the ministry came around to the official American version Reports referring to an exer cise a couple of months ago are wrong an Air Ministry spokes man said The last occasion on which took part in an exercise of this kind was in an operation referred to as Skyshield II about Oct 14 1961 That exercise was a joint operation designed to test de fenses The spokesman declined to com ment when asked if British bombers penetrated North Ameri cas radar network in the 1961 exercise FIRE CLAIMS 5 WALLINGFORD Conn UPI

many mora years of useful life as a nuclear deterrent Vulcans were to have been used to carry the nowscrapped Sky bolt they will carry the improved Blue Streak standoff bomb which is to be the basis of Britains independent nuclear deterrent until the nation is equipped with Polaris missiles The Daily Express Sketch Tel egraph and Herald all reported the strike Had the attack been real it would have wiped out several ma jor American cities including Los Angeles Chicago and New York the Herald said The Express said it understood the operation succeeded because the Deltawing Vulcans were so fast and apparently flew at an altitude of about 12 miles It said some of the Vulcans were fitted with electronic counter measures to keep American pa trol planes from detecting strike In Denver Maj Ford Dawson a spokesman for the North Ameri can Defense Command said there was no truth to the newspaper reports He termed them just a lot of nonsense Dawson said it was not the pur pose of the Royal Air Force to pierce US air defenses When ever flights were made over the United States he said advance warning is given to prevent Allied planes from being mistaken for enemy craft The Herald said the British planes flying from bases in Brit ain were opposed by nearly 1000 NORAD supersonic fighters They got through to their tar gets by using new decoy radar signals which confused the Ameri can

and proved themselves to be remarkably effective Before giving serious consideration to this serv icetoreaders project we contacted a dozen news papers which had either completed the program or were in the midst of it at the time of our inquiry These papers ranged geographically from the New England states Hartford Courant oldest Amer ican daily to Honolulu Hawaii The Advertiser with a number in between In each case we dealt with a personal While there were varying degrees of enthusiasm as would be expected every report was definitely favorable Some bordered on the ecstatic with respect to both the public acceptance and the effectiveness of the records as a language aid But even with we wanted to be werent satisfied We arranged with a wellrespected language teacher known to be cool toward this approach to examine the records with a critical ear It was her report even more than the testimonials from our farflung journalistic colleagues that per suaded us to take on the task of serving as a clearing house for the LearnaLanguage Records in the dozen counties served by our newspaper There is of course no representation on the part of those who processed the most assured ly none on our they will perform a mir acle There must be a real desire and a real effort on the part of the learner With a reasonable amount of perseverence it has been demonstrated dozens of times in dozens of places the user of our LearnaLanguage Recoids can acquire enough proficiency in any of five tongues offered to get along in the countries where they are spoken Another point revealed in the numerous places where there has been a widescale distribution of the discs is that the excellence of the pronunciation em ployed in them is of pronounced aid to language stu dents who havent had the benefit of authentic ar ticulation of a tongue No age bracket has an exclusive in this program Obviously the offering can be helpful to youths who are engaged in a language study But the records can open new vistas to adults as the KGLOTV Spanish courses have demonstrated Then too the discs are not perishable They can be made available for the future use of youngsters not now sufficiently mature Shall it be Spanish French Russian Italian or German Thats for the individual to say The question must be answered on the basis of individual prefer ence or need In other places some have electedto work on two or more Some indeed have played it across the board Up to this time the Chicago Daily News is No 1 m the matter of LearnaLanguage Record dissem ination But other papers with smaller circulation have served thousands of their readers The Globe Gazette has the hope that its readers will avail them selves of this offer in large numbers The GlobeGazette has only one interest Its that there be an extensive use of what is being offered as a service to readers It was this consideration which prompted a pricing somewhat below the cost involved for the records and the servicing aspect
