More and More People-Where Will They Get Food? In 17$Q Finland's I h r> Rrv. Thomas R. Malthus stated a« part of his prrnv i«e that trouble for the world was ahead in this manner: "First, that food is necessary to the existence of man. Secondly, that the passion between the sexes is necessary, and will remain nearly in its present state." For ISO years, most of the world scoffed at his warning that man would out-propagate his iapacity to feed himself. Bui today there is chilling evidence that that time has arrived. Consider: Almost one-half of the world's 3.3 billion people go to bed each nigh! either hungry or grossly ,11-fed. By the year 2000, before today's children have reached middle ape, that 3.3 billion will have multiplied to 7.4 billion. The Population Reference Bureau views this as "calamitous."

OUR REPLY: The problem may be in what you have or have not said when friends brought you the message that the boy likes you. Your reaction was likely reported back to him. Were you indifferent? Were you casual? Or, did you, in turn, indicate that you like him too? If so, then, let us assume that the boy is "bashful." He wants to call you, but he just can't make himself do it. Yep, some boys are like that. If such is the case, there certainly are times when it is appropriate for a girl to ask a boy to be her escort, for a club or group party when the girl's group is having the affair. If the boy knows you like him, it's only a matter of "breaking the ice.' wont to ditcuitl W »n •'" t y.5L'*2j5 mokt. «ddi«u veui l»H«i «o FOR AND ABOUT TEENAGERS.

New fertility-control techniques enhance this possibility." Latin America's annual population growth rate of almost 2.5 per cent is the highest for a single area. At that pace, its 248 million people will double in 29 years. By comparison, Europe's rate has been 0.7 per cent for 35 years, and the same rate is expected for the next 35 years. Asia's annual growth rate of 1.4 per cent Is expected to rise to 2.5 by 2000. Riving it an over-all population of about four billion—a billion more than the present entire world nonulation. With the acceptance as fact that more and more people .are coming, the next question is where will they get food? Thomas Ware told a Sen- c o m m i 11 e e in June that only 3.5 per cent, or less than 4 billion acres of the world surface, is capable of growing food. And that land is constantly threat.' ened by erosion from deforestation, exhaustion, war and unscientific use. WARE URGED more use of fertilizer, better seeds and tools, weed and pests controls, better distribution systems and greater use of the sea as a source of food. Fish and oilseed meals containing high protein value have been developed and are being used to supplement the diets of children in Latin America and Africa. Getting wheat from docks to the mills and ovens is a handicap in many instances where shipments are made under the U.S. Food for Peace program. Most of all, Ware urged concerted action—by governments, private agencies and individuals. McGovern, backed hy Sen. Gaylord Nelson, D- Wis., has offered a beginning—a bill to establish an international food and nutrition director. THE MEASURE, which McGovern calls a 10-year war against want, would authorize $500 million annually with which the president would buy U.S. foods to be sold, exchanged or donated to needy nations. i The legislation has been assigned to the Foreign Relations Committee. A companion measure has been introduced in the House. No one believes the United States can feed all of the hungry world. But it can contribute and, with other governments, can provide the food. But quantity is not enough. The Food for Peace office tells of a Guatemalan girl who w a s so ill-nour* ished she Weighed only 21 pounds at'age 11. A baby in Colombia reached only five pounds in nine months. Scrimshaw said malnutrition kills one-third .to one-half or more of the children before age 5 in many developing countries. He said nutritional advances must accompany greater food output if star- vatton is not to be replaced only by illness and disease. IT IS too early to tell what results birth control programs will produce. Whatever happens, overall population growth is not expected to be stopped, short of a nuclear war involving most of the majdr countries. 10 YEARS AGO IN TMI Our area " wondered, and understandably so, just what effect the IBP operation might have on them. The thought of feeding 50,000 cattle at a time is a fit frightening, as Gerald Frankl readily admitted. But he added that this total would be about a 10-day kill at the three plants of IBF, and that it represented less than 3% of the total yearly slaughter of the three IBP plants. But the early plans at Irvington call for 5,000 or so on feed In a year or two, not 50,000. "Iowa Beef Pack has no idea and the project never will be used as a market manipulation of any kind," Frankl said. He pointed out that IBP Is simply endeavoring to maintain itself in a good position In a highly competitive field; that large-scale feedlot operations are now and have been In operation in such states as Arizona, California, Kansas and Colorado, but not In Iowa where there is the biggest supply of cattle feed. "We are simply trying to find as efficient a way as possible to feed cattle," said Frankl. He pointed out thai from the day a calf arrives at the feedlot it is destined for a certain day to go to market, and _ that when that day arrives the animal goes to slaughter regardless of what the market might be. It is perfectly understandable that the aver. - age-size cattle feeder can visualize his market disappearing. But even with the Irvington lot in full swing, IBP still is in the market to buy cattle from individual cattle raisers, as are all other competing packing firms. There were some figures quoted, from government sources, that made the cattle figures look small compared with the rapid expansion and growth of U.S. and world population, FROM THE FILES OF THE UPPER DES MOJNES November 17, 1955 A, T,«,,Rock., man, Edwin ;Lj}edtke, bagged a deer In Emmet county'with a bow and arrow, placing him in a very select group.
