BROADCAST SCHEDULE KGLO 13001 pm WOI AMES 610 pm WTAD Quincy 930 pm Thurs WSUI tow City 910 Sat Move over and make more room TF POPULATION becomes th problem for our whole worlc that it is alreadysfor some coun tries India Indonesia and China it can be pfedictec that Australia with its vast open spaces will be extremely im portant in the solution The Australian island conti nent is about the size of the United States without Alaska We have 180 million people as contrasted with the 10 Or 11 mil lion in the Land Down Under and by comparison with mos other lands America is by no means overcrowded Australia has just about every thing needed for sustaining an enormous population every thing but one Thats water Its northern reaches up arounc Darwin the jumping off place for those flying to Singapore are tropical and plenty warm though not unbearably so The southern and more populous parts are cooled by winds from Antarctica But no where are there temp erature extremes such as those known to us here in the upper middle west I visited Melbourne and Sidney in December sup posedly the middle of Aus tralias summer LIKE CALIFORNIA so much of the time however the weath er was unusual A topcoat was comfortable And I nearly froze on Mt Wellington looking down on Hob art capital of the island state of Tasmania off the Mel bourne coast Thai brings me back to the subject of water If food is man kinds greatest problem as I believe it to be it follows that water must be bracketed with it Water too much or too little and its usually too little is the one chief reason about half of the worlds human beings go to bed hungry every night My visits into some 60 coun tries have left me with the im pression that while no country is wholly free from the water problem its a great deal more acute in some than in others Theres the further fact that something is being done about it in some places whereas in others people seem resigned to their lot But that isnt the case with Australia The Aussies have sensed that if their land is ever to achieve global importance something must be done about the water problem with which they are IF I AM A LITTLE EXTRA conscious of Australias water problem its to be explained by the fact that my host in Mel bourne while attending the 1956 Olympics was G Vernon Law rence who as executive head of a voluntary association set up to make fullest use of the pre cious water supply from Aus tralias principal high country the Snowy Mountains in New South Wales With him as my principal WAITING FOR RESCUE One of several passen gers trapped inside

for a speech in Denver and then on to Salt Lake City for a talk in the Mormon Taber nacle tonight Mrs Nixon plan ned to fly from Washington D C and join him in Denver Nixon comparatively restful Sunday during which he made news by wandering alone around Billings Nixon used most of the afternoon polishing a 750word statement in which he summed up where he thinks he and Kennedy chiefly differ and to sizing up the campaign so far Herbert G Klein Nixons news secretary told reporters source of information I did a couple or two pieces from Aus tralia about the unbelievable accomplishments already rung up in harnessing the Murray River and making its basin into one of the worlds most produc tive areas The story involved reversing the flow of a river in the MelbourneSydney corner of the continent by cutting a 14 mile tunnel through those Aus tralian Alps A semiarid tract was thus made to bring forth wonderful fruit From Vernon Lawrence and others I heard of other plans even more ambitious Another and greater river with water flowing down to the sea unused was to be reversed and diverted through a 30mile tunnel which at one point according to the was to be 3000 feet un der a mountain It sounded like something out of a Jules Verne fictional piece WITH THIS AS A BACK ground youll understand my very special interest in a re Centinutrf tn Pair sought in slayings at Keokuk
