problem TF FOOD is mankinds greatest I believe it to be follows that water must be bracketed with it much or too little and its usual ly too the one principal reason about half of the worlds human beings go to bed hungry every night These are observati ons prompted by visits to some 60 countries in my career of travel No nation is wholly free from the problem but its a great deal more acute in some than in oth ers Theres the further fact that something is being done about it in some places whereas in others people are resigned to their lot High on the list of the coun tries which are doing something about the matter is the United States Our attack on the prob lem has taken a number of dif ferent forms dams irriga tion desalting of seawater and in recent years attempts at arti ficial rainmaking But great as our efforts have beeh still could take lessons from the Australians The peo ple down under have that if their island continent is ever to achieve global impor tance they must do something about the water problem with which they are plagued ROUGHLY SPEAKING ample moisture is restricted to a nar row band of about 200 acres around Australia The vast in terior is classifiable as either arid or semiarid Much of it wont even support sheep or other grazing livestock With an area about the size of United States without Alas ka Australia has a population only slightly in excess of 10 mil lion more than half of it in ur ban centers such as Sydney Melbourne and Brisbane The more optimistic Aussies believe that with a full utiliza tion of existent resources and a creation of moisture for that largely uninhabited interior their countrys population could be increased to 30 million or more prosperous citizens SOME RATHER FANTASTIC proposals have been advanced for turning inland Australia into a productive tract One calls for siphoning in an enor mous lake of seawater The the ory is that evaporation from this lake would be returned as rainfor the parched environs Meteorologists however find fault with this theory They dont think it would work out that way The rain and snow which fall on the upper Mis sissippi Valley come not from our lakes and rivers but from the Gulf of Mexico it is pointed out Another proposal even more implausible more highly regarded by realists than the inland made lake for transporting fresh water from nearby New Guinea by tunnel for use in irrigation New Guinea of course is one of the worlds wettest spots It has in surplus what Australia so des perately needs How to get the water from where it is to where its needed is the problem quite a problem BUT BEFORE we laugh off this last proposal wed better take a look at what has been done The flow of one river in tha MelbourneSydney corner of the continent has been reversed by cutting a 14mile tunnel through the Snowy Mountains A semiarid tract of land has CONTINUED ON PAGE 2 the Kansas line had two below MORNING temperatures stood at about 5 degrees above zero in
