It is this kind of thing that the committee is determined to expose in Many of the big cities of the country and the Story of the inroads w hich criminal influence has made in politics Dot s not Stop Al the City level the Committer has found specific evidence has already Bern gathered on corruption among state officials further there is evidence linking Washington officials in the syndicates however the committee is particularly silent about this aspect it the Case the significance of the surprisingly effective Job the committee has done in the first few months of it existence is that it has found a method of investigation which produces results and the fact that it is a congressional body with the Power of subpoena and the authority to look into any suspicious activity of underworld characters regardless of whether that activity is covered by Federal legislation a made it Strong enough to Cope with the powerful Syndicate Bosses. Allies plan Aid for hungry Asia sorry buds Vout it Underw Steht Christian science Monitor one of the greatest humanitarian problems of these hard Days is How to Deal with the hunger which holds millions of asiatics in its grim grip this in t a seasonal emergency. To by overcome simply by shipping Grain to afflicted Arras the plague is More deep seated than that it lies in insufficient food production. Due among other things to antiquated agricultural methods Lack of fertilizers and insufficient irrigation. Accordingly America and British Commonwealth nations Are swinging into action to boost food production in hard hit places thus attacking the source of the evil special attention is being paid to countries where hunger creates conditions favourable to the spread of communism. The u. S. State department is considering a plan involving expenditure of $300 million annually for four or five years it would include help for Pakistan. India. Ceylon. Afghanistan. Israel and Arab states of the Middle East meantime in London a Commonwealth conference has been working on similar projects for Southeast Asia. One must have visited tilt hunger areas to get full understanding of what they mean. I have travelled in most of the territory being considered by the state department and. Believe me. Conditions frequently Are appalling. Take for instance the Indian subcontinent which includes both India and Pakistan. In that vast area there arc literally untold millions who almost always Are hungry. Generation after generation goes from Cradle to grave undernourished despite government efforts to meet the situation irrigation projects have been developed in strategic areas and Progress has been made in agricultural education. However. The it problem is an ancient heritage that is too big for Quick solution. Some 400 million people dwell on the Indian Peninsula about 300 million in India and too million in Pakistan. More than 70 per cent of the population secures a a living Quot from the land. Ninety per cent of the people live in villages of which strange to relate there Are 700.000 an idea of what this staggering figure Means is seen from the fact that there Are Only about 10.000 incorporated places under 1.000. In All Continental u. S. Primitive conditions. I have visited Indian villages. Conditions Are primitive and in w Many cases the squalor is terrible. It in t uncommon for the Farmer to keep his cow or other animals in the one room mud hut which his family Calls Home. With rare exceptions the farm or is in the hands of the Village Money Lender who has provided funds to buy an animal or some implement and exacts enormous interest. The rate averages As High As 35 per cent yearly compounded. As much As 75 per cent is charged it sometimes besides that there Are t taxes to pay. Naturally All this keeps the unfortunate Farmer in dire poverty. He and his family Are Lucky Tow get any food at All. Leave alone enough to fill their bellies. Next two big the Racket world.

Released to the Public monday emphasizes the principle of self Protection by the individual extended to include Mutual Elf Protection on the part of groups and communities the plan was drawn up by the National Security resources Board after considerable research and is intended to serve As a guide to Congress and state and local government1 in determining the part each should take in setting up Protection tor the Home front the plan defines civil defense As Protection of the Home tront by civilians acting under civil authority to minimize casualties and War damage and pre serve maximum civilian support of the War Effort. The civil defense system should provide the Means whereby this country if suddenly attacked heavily and without warning could get up off the floor to fight Back. It is assumed that any attack would be partially successful. The Board asserts that whether it would succeed in destroying America s i seductive Power would depend in the main on the organization and functional efficiency of the country s civil defense As outlined by the Board the Federal governments responsibility is to establish a National plan with accompanying policy and to Issue information and educational material about both it would provide of ires and facilities for schooling and raining provide co ordination of interstate operations furnish sum of the essential equipment. Ara advise the a a Tate concerning the establishment of stockpiles of medical Rand other supplies needed of the time of disaster. The responsibility of the state a it is to provide leadership and in Ermion in All planning for civil defense and direction of operations in an emergency. The Tate is the key operating unit the Field army of civil defense. Or. Our Tate governor Renn Bohrn recently appointed colonel Ralph a Jolson.

Or other agencies it also recommend that the individual be encouraged to equip himself with tools supplies and other essentials for the preservation of himself and i family. It is recognized that some aspects of the civil defense program will require expenditure of Federal state and local funds but it also should be recognized that much of the program rests with Volunteer workers and can be set up at Little or no Rod and without waiting for action by Congress or the state legislature. For instance we can Sec no reason for Delav in establishing a comprehensive program for training in first Aid that should apply to adults and students particularly those in High school. We have no doubt that Tho schools will co operate fully once such a request is made. There Are a number of things for the people of each Community to keep in mind one is that for the first time in 136 years an enemy has the Power to attack our cities in Force and that for the first time an attack May come suddenly with Little or no warning. The Srb believes that through a comprehensive civil defense program it should to possible to reduce casualties by More than 50 per cent. Civil defense. It says could spell the difference Between defeat with slavery for our people and Victory in a War thrust upon us. With this in mind. Every Community should get it program under Way at once. It should not be a program of half measures. Switched. A the caravan plodded past the new Oil refinery in Arabia one of the Dro medaries apparently affected by Gas fumes began to cough and gag the Driver rushed Forward. Began beating the animal with a switch while a Yankee Workman called. Hey what s the big idea a Quot Quot sir Quot replied the Arab. Quot i am merely teaching my Carnel not to More and More urgently the task of curbing inflation appears As an International assignment. That fact cannot safely be lost sight of even in these Days of political and military planning by the big three and Tho 12 Atlantic pact members meeting in new York. For impelling reasons of Solf de fens As Well As altruism for americans the speech French Premier Bene pleven delivered on this subject in Brittany deserves emphasis. It has come at just the moment. Moreover to refocus attention on the warning of the International monetary fund that rearmament confronts Europe with economic dangers which can play Light into the hands of world communism. Premier pleven urged that prices of raw materials be controlled by Etc National agreement. He tied this approach frankly to Francos needs. Prices in France arc very sensitive to the costs of imports. But that is True in much of Europe. And so is the fact that Quot monetary stability is As absolutely essential for National defense As the development of War Materiel and effective. tile cock munits have been making capital of the Price rises which have occurred since the outbreak of War in Korea. In All this the United states has a Central responsibility to discharge. We pm w that to say this risks Boring Many american readers who have watched their country bearing responsibility after responsibility Ever since Hitler broke Loose in Europe. But there it is. After All. An economic responsibility is Only part of the american Burden a american troops Are offering their lives in Korea and the number of them in Western Europe is to be greatly increased in the next few months. Those who say that All this is not really America s business will find the communists the first to agree with them insofar As president Truman s program for dealing with inflation i actually keeps Down the Cost of j things Europe must buy in Tho United states for rearmament it will make a vital contribution in the struggle against communism i there but americans should not be led to assume that global defense of Freedom can be assured with limited sacrifices. The stepping up of defense plans in Europe is already imposing burdens there which May have to be passed on in part to the american people. The reasons for this Are As Complex As economics itself. They can be covered in a general Way by saying that though production in Europe is now higher than before the War there is much less flexibility in the european than in the american Economy. And the cutting Back of living standards which is now called for by rearmament has to begin i at a substantially lower level. Therefore the Point at which economic readjustments must be made in Europe is nearer to the it Point of political upset than in the1 United states. Upsets if they came might lie More violent and dangerous. The Battle against inflation like the contest with communism can hardly be fought successfully on a dozen separate uncoordinated National fronts. That is the meaning of the pleven speech and the monetary fund report. In economic As in military defense the West is being forced to find new bases of Unity.

I Ariel Mcyr Ltd Page has demanded that the interstate Cornin rec commission Hale the entire railroading Industry to Washington for an investigation of railway safety practices. It proper and it s just that the Coshocton mashup be exhaustively investigated and it 1 being done How one train can min into the rear of another even in abnormal visibility i hard to understand but the obligation to seek tile cause of individual accidents by no mean1 implies a need to investigate Tho entire Industry the truth is that the railroads Art Lite of St Mode of modern travel known to Man tin National safety Council figure for 1949 Sizov.

Every time a plane or a train is involved in a fatal the news is splattered All oven tile headlines but tile millions of afe flights arid journeys Are of course unnoticed by press and radio. As a result the rare exception Over Shadow the commonplace Rule in the Public consciousness. Despite Tim most far reaching precautions a certain minimum of accidents in travel cannot be avoided. Safety is dependent on human beings arid human beings Are fallible. They Are subject to traffic mishaps in factories on Street Corners at play and at Home and in vehicles too. If these facts Are seen in their proper proportion there will be less Public hysteria after each highly publicized Accident. Arid there will be fewer senators seeking to grasp the nation railroaders by the Scruff of tin neck and haul them into Washington
