MONDAY, 'AUGUST 8, 1S49 BLYTHEVTLL15 (ARK.) COUIUEH NEWS PAGE FTVS THE NATION TODAY— Authors Use American History To Take Careful Look Into the Future and Find Bright Picture By James Marlon' WASHINGTON. Aug. 8. (iP>— Two years ago the twentieth Ccniury Fund published an 812-page book "America's Needs «nd Resources," valuable study of this country's growth. The essential (acts m that larger book now have been boiled down into 101 pages In "US.A., Measure of a Nation" with easy-to-react text and picture charts. It goes back a hundred years lo show the growth of America and pvojecls the American picture lo 1960 to indicate where we're going. In their foreword the authors—«fr . Thomas n. Carsadnn and Rudolf Modlcy—say: "When we ... take a long look behind, the minor ups and downs flatten out in a rising curve of economic activity, of increasing productive |Mi\ver, unique in the annals of tins world. "It Is deeply impressive. And \vhei> we project tills curve Into the future, assuming that we can continue to act as we have in the pnst. we begin lo realize America's vast economic and social potential." Trcxtucllnn Is Key Hundreds Fight Raging Forest Fire in Montana The drawings on page one lH"Un to tell the story, in 1850 there were about Ti million workers here. Now close lo GO million. And from 13 hours for 6 days a week the average work-week shrank to- 4:1 hours In 1940, with the workweek expected to be shorter in the future. Say authors: "The measure or our whole past achievement, as well as our future prospects lie i» one . vilal facAor—productivity, or output per man-hour of work— and average hour's work in 18nO produced only onp-fiflh in goods and scrivces or what it produces today. "Producing more goods and services pei - hour of work makes our progress possible, nils gives us more output to divide up. It c-an bn distribute^ in the form of higher wages to workers, tower prices to consumers, more money plowed brick into business itself, or greater yield to owners and managers. . . "Back iti 1850 machines supplied only a tiny six per cent of the power used In doiinr the country's work. The big contributor was animal power—horses, oxen, and , mules; human sweat and muscle furni.shrd most of the rest. " Birth Kale Declining The authors^poitit out that the great growth in this country came after the Civil War. • The populniEon here was 133 million in 1040. it's about H7 million now. and should be around 155 million in 1960, the authors figure. But— Our birthrate has bsen going down. But so has the death rate, and that offsets the lower birthrate a bit. One thins to remember is this: "In tlie first 10 years of the present, century, our population increased n'^re from immigrants thnn from our own birth. Since 1930 immigration has all but ceased. Every page In tlie book i.s worth reading and thinking over. It's a good book. HELENA. Mont., Aug. 8— tA') Five hundred /ire fighters hurle. their might today at the .flaming three mile front of a timber bla/. that has killed 13 forest service men and burned nearly 6,000 acres since Friday. Armed wtth axes and shovels, iw< separate battaHons of smoke-black encd men attacked from the noilt and south on 7,500 foot Willoi Mountain. They struggled to seal off the fire's northesntward movement -toward more heavy timber in the gates of th e mountains forest 25 miles northwest of Helena. Wilderness area hills and small parties of fire lighters had clieck- edthe flames In the r«st of' the 21-mile pilmeter seared by the blaze. Showers slowed the advance of the flames yesterday but a 20 mile hour wind fanned the fire in :he northeastern section. The fire devastated from 800 lo 1,800 acres yesterday. , Willow Mountain Is east of Mann Gulch, where the lightening blaze started Friday. The fire has moved four miles east of where the Missouri River winds picturesquely through mountain peaks. Calls for volunteers went out again yesterday. Forest service officials sent fresh men in to relieve those nearly exhausted on fire lines. They also built up a pool of manpower—in case tV*e fire crosses Willow Mountain. The Forest Service has not sent any of Its parachuting firefighters to the blaze since Friday—when the smoke jumping program suff^ed its worst tragedy in its 10-year history. Fifteen smokejumpers, mostly college students, were trapped by the five when tfie wind shitted suddenly after they were safely on the ground at Mann Gulch. Only three escaped. In addition to the 12 smoke- jumpers, tiie fire killed a prevention guard from nearby Canyon Ferry Ranger station. A helicopter brought the charred bodies to a Helena morgue where fellow firefighters Identified them. Fulbnght Plans to Act To Block Labeling Law WASHINGTON.
