S. - TYPE PRODUCTIVITY KEY TO EUROPE'S REARMAMENT W ITH BOLD CREATIVES, high-placed Americans have conceived a positive, challenging plan to meet western Europe's problem of how to rearm without wrecking recovery. The keynote they have struck is the single word, "productivity." It is an economist's term, sounding perhaps a little deadly. But to U. S. businessmen it has a magic content: it means output per man, ind stands as the prime measure of economic efficiency. Applied to Europe's dilemma, it does indeed fire the imagination. What the Americans are saying is simple but it makes forceful argument: if Europe cannot afford to slice off much of present production for rearmament, the solution then lies in getting more production. From the increase in output rearmament may be fed and there may even be enough left over to allow higher civilian consumption. Business leaders, ECA officials and others do not propose that this increased production siocl-d orsne from adding workers or toiling longer hours. They was: Is "o ceaie from higher output per man. In other words, from grea:sr pra£ac*ivity. Since this calls for ester;? sew wealth rather than just drearily dividing Europe's exsiirsj SEbsraEce, the idea has powerful appeal. From this side of the Ac&nta-- productivity is no longer merely a word. It' is becoming a ensads. • • • H OW 1?ARGE THE IDEA BULKS in American thinking was apparent at the recent Lisbon meeting of the International Chamber of Commerce. Productivity was the theme of that conference. American businessmen were selling it hard to their European brethren. Their case sounded convincing. * Paul G. Hoffman, former ECA head, told the Europeans, for example, that with one-fifteenth of the world's land, natural resources and population the United States is able to produce a third of all the {would be under Communism while world's goods and half its manufactured products. The erolanation, j tne * ree peoples, meaning us al- hg said, is productivity.

Everything tne hands of the people outside the Iron Curtain, while Communism Wilson's Report WASHINGTON*. July 5. — A couple of arguments can be offered those who believe this country should let the rest of the world go hang while we keep our troops and arms and economic strength entirely at home. One is the moral and emotional appeal. The other is the practical kind. The first goes like this: We're free and we have a moral obligation to help others retain their freedom against the attack or pressure of Communism. Charles E. Wilson, boss of the mobilization program, used the practical argument in his second quarterly report made last night to President Truman on the progress of mobilization and the problems ahead. • a • AT THIS TIME, WILSON" pointed out. 75 per cent of.the industrial production of the world is in the hands of the people outside Communism while those behind the Iron Curtain have only 25 per cent of it. But if Communism took over Europe, then 51 per cent of the world's industrial produc t i o n concerned with production is a factor—use of power, dependence on machinery, plant lay-out, management techniques. Hoffman believes power and machinery deficiencies are the chief handicaps. Others put a lot of stress on need for more enlistened management. Western Europe is now producing at a rate of $170 billions a year. Key Americans are sure $100 billions could be added to that in 10 years, largely through boosts in productivity. s INCE 1900, AMERICA HAS HIKED its productivity about 2 per cent a year, and this is regarded everywhere as a remarkable performance. Today's bright dream for Europe calls for gains in excess of 6 per cent for the next decade. U. S. leaders nevertheless say it can be done. They point out that Arnerica's productivity advance has been much sharper than 2 per cent at certain times, especially during the two great wars. They observe, tbo, that Europe can draw upon the great reservoir of productivity '"know -how" already built up in this country. American Removes Shah's Appendix f~- By Associated Pres> -TEHRAN, Iran, July 5 — An American doctor cut out Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlevi's appendix today and the 32-year-old ruler was reported resting comfortably. A court official described the operation as "a simple appendectomy with no complications." Four American and three Iran­ ian doctors were present at the operating room in Tehran's Bank Melli Hospital. The actual operation was performed by Dr. Frank Glenn, chief surgeon at New York Hospital. POLICE COURT Fines assessed before W. O. Page in police court included: Sylvester L. Mick, $15.40 for disturbance; Glenn Riley, $15.40 for disturbance; David E Jackson, $15.40 on drunk charge; Harold Watson, $6.40 for illegal parking. Northern Bruin Answer to Previous Puzzle has only six per cent * » * BUT IF COMMUNISM takes over the Middle East, it will control almost half—49 per cent—of the world's crude oil reserves while the free people's reserves will drop to 51 per cent. At this time the people of the free world outnumber those under Communism by two to one, since 68 per cent are outside the curtain and only 32 per cent behind it. But if Communism takes over Asia and Europe, then the people under the Soviets would outnumber us three to one. with 77 per cent behind the curtain and only 23 per cent still outside. The obvious question which follows all those statements is: Where would we be and what kind of shape would we be in to survive if all those things happened? * * * SINCE WILSON'S REPORT is full of figures on production and ill CONDITIONED.

But it is exciting for anyone with patience enough to plow through it. It gives in some detail the program of a nation which, for the first time in history, hopes to be able to keep its regular civilian life pretty much unchanged while getting ready for war on a big scale, if it comes. That's the goal of the program, well-known and widely stated: to get arms produced for ourselves and allies and at the same time expand our factories' ability to produce so we can maintain a high standard of civilian living. We haven't reached the goal yet, and won't for some time. Congress, of course, may cut down the program if it thinks, because of peace which may come in Korea, that we can afford to relax and take it easier. But with the program continuing. Wilson and those around him are worried there may be damaging inflation if Congress eases up on the inflation controls.

Answers to Questions Should Clear Up Some of the Confusion BY EDWIN P. JORDAN, M. D. Wlitteei for NBA Service THURSDAY, JULY 5, 1951 Circuit Courf Here Monday A number of questions on polio has been sent in which will supplement the series of columns on the disease published this week. • * * * Q — • Has the medical profession discovered how long the virus of polio lives? E. R. J. A — No. Just where the virus goes between epidemics Is still a mystery. * • • • Q — In your opinion, does the elimination of all starches and sweets from the diet tend to build up some resitance to polio in the individual? Mrs. M, C A— There Is little or no reason to believe that it does. Polio seems to attack well-nourished and poorly-nourished nlike. Good scientific evidence that the diet Influences susceptibility to polio is lacking. e • e e Q — What is the incubation period of polio? S. L. A — The time between when the virus enters the system and the appearance of the first symptoms %'aries. between four days and two weeks, according to present evidence. Q — Why isn't there a serum which can be given to prevent polio - ? R. C. P. A — There have been many attempts to produce a preparation which would build up resistance to this disease. The best possibility Is probably a vaccine made from the virus which,causes the disease. However, so far many difficulties have arisen Including the fact that there are probably several kinds of polio viruses. Building up immunity to one does not mean that there to the other forms. Is resistance Ancient Egyptians, being fond j of music, used such instruments 1 as harps, lyres, guitars, double and single pipes, and flutes.

FREE DELIVERY Q - - How do you fool about children going in swimming during the polio season? C. R. A — There Is no real polio "season". In an ordinary year there seems no good reason to keep youngsters out of tho water just on account of this vague fear. If u community has a lot of cases of polio In it the problem Is somewhat different. Opinion seems to be divided on the question under these circumstances even though the evidence of spread of polio from swimming Is conflicting, I should keep my own children out of a pool if there was a good deal of polio around. « • * * Q — Is it really true that polio is not an important cause of death? I can hardly believe it Mrs. P. L. H. A — Any en use of death Is a tragedy and to be avoided. There are, however, fewer deaths from polio than from whooping cough, measles or scarlet fever, none of which causes nearly as much alarm as polio. * * * * Q—My little boy's tonsils should come out. Is there any danger from polio if they are removed in the summer? Mrs. B. F. A — Summer Is usually a pretty Judge Caswell J. Crebs will open the July term of circuit court in Mt. Vernon next Monday, July 9. He is expected to hold only a one-day court session. good time to remove tonsil*. The only reason for not doing »o Is If there Is an unusual amount of polio in that particular coinmu* nlty. Most students of polio believe that operations of this nature are undesirable under such circumstances although some doctors are not convinced that even this brings any unusual rlska. tfOTE ON QUESTIONS Dr. Jordan is unable to answer directly individual questions from readers.
