Babies - - And Electronics! Â« The science of electronics was vastly accelerated By the pressures of World War II. One of the most afamatic developments was radar, which enabled ships and planes to pinpoint targets and objects many rniles away through the blackest night or the worst of weather. .. To many of us who have difficulty in balancing a Sionthly bank statement, one of the most mysterious greatures spawned since the war by this new science is the electronic computer. Electrical impulses representing complex mathematical equations and relationships can be fed into one of them at fantastic rates of speed - - up to several hundred Â· thousand characters per second. These remarkable machines have been applied to everything from figuring the . Best combination of ingredients for sausage to analyzing and mapping the movements of every aircraft over the United States as part of our air defense -. system. They guide missiles into space, and, worse luck, scan our income tax returns, r One'of the most interesting recent developments is a new adaptation of the computer in the field of medicine. Nearly 150,000 babies die annually in the last four months of pregnancy, or the first year of lif e. A group of doctors have organized a study program which utilizes electronic data processing equipment to evaluate pregnancy and birth information from 91 hospitals. Last year the initial program studied 150,000 births. And in 1962, it is hoped that half a million may be handled. The eventual goal will be to analyze all of the nation's baby deliveries, and reduce the infant mortality rate by 15 to 25 per cent in the next five to ten years by making information on previous handling of particular birth and infant conditions immediately available to attending physicians. . Electronics is becoming one of the nation's major industries, and it is certainly one of the most imaginative and rapidly growing ones. Many of its miracle machines have become commonplace necessities in business, industry, and the home. And to an ever-increasing degree ; ^ts products will contribute to the country's technical and productive capacity, and to individual enjoyment, comfort and length of life.

I challenge the entire electric industry to a new competition. Who can do best for the power user? Call it what you will - - co-operation, competition, co-ordination, or just plain common sense -- this approach offers the best hope for all concerned." These eloquent words are those of Secretary of the Interior Udall. But more than words are needed before that "Chinese Wall" separating public and private power can be bridged. Alleged cooperation between the government and the utility companies can be like cooperation between a cat and a canary - - before long there's no canary. Determined groups, within and without the government, seek complete socialization of the power resources of this country - - including nuclear power as well as that produced from the conventional sources. The government systems enjoy all manner of advantages denied any private enterprise - - tax freedom, below-cost capital, and so on.

How's the irrigation ditch for the village going? " thai almosl every liberal or laboi group which backed President Kennedy almost 100 per cent is disappointed, publicly or privately, over his performance on behalf of their various causes. Their grievances cover such politico-economic areas as public versus private power develop menl, pro-business provisions in Ihe pending lax bill, racial discrimination, labor - management relations and anti-strike procedure, his "get moving" program and his diluted effort to protect millions of unorganized and helpless consumers. As evidence of this discontent, there is the undisputed fact that the Administration has been, .criticized, albeit gently in public, by the American Public Power Association, the National Riiral Electrification Association, the Americans for Democratic Action, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, the AFL-CIO and several influential railroad unions angry over the recent report condemning "feather-bedding" provisions "in their contracls. A concurring bit of testimony 1 is that he has not been assailed by those two Gibraltars of ex-; Ireme conservatism -- Ihe United States Chamber of Commerce and facturers -- as viciously as wer Franklin D.

Foreign News Commentary By PHIL NEWSOM, UPI Foreign Editor* When Nikita Khrushchev addressed (he Communist Party Central Committee in Moscow early in March, a note of des peration clearly was discernible. Soviet and satellite agriculture was in bad shape. Goals had not been met, anc complaining letters were coming into the Central Committee from city dwellers who could find no butter or meat in the shops. Many of the letters accused the committee of bad planning. This latter, with his own rcpu- .alion at stake, Khrushchev stoutly denied. But he admitted: "If we do not solve this task ive shall be placing the country n great difficulties. The cause if building Communism will be dealt a dire blow." There were several conlribut- ng factors to Khrushchev's di- emma. One was the fact 'h?' (he Sovet population is increasing by about three million per year. Because of the trend from farm a city, its urban population was ncrcasing even faster - by near- y five million in 1%0 and near- y two million in the first hnlf of 1961. Another factor w;'.s a shortage if farm machinery which In OHIO cases wcro less (linn SO per rent of requirements. Collective arms possessed only 43 per cent of needed tractors, and many ol those they did have could not ', used because of failure to make repairs. Khrushchev admitted these fail ures and placed further blame for shortages on the grasslands system which took a large proportion of the land out of production. But he ignored the main prob- iem which simply was that peasant farmers would not labor as well or as effectively for the col- ective as tr-'y would for their own private plots. As controls n'ere increased and private plots rcducec 1 , production decreased i. -dirjly. Radio Free Europe notes that "despite overwhelming evidence that collectivization of a coun .ry's agricultural resources CM cad only to fnibre, the Communists are continuing along the road of regimenting the countryside. Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia, East Uormany, Romania, Hungary, all ell short of production goals and II are heavily collectivized. The only exception was Poland where only 13 per cent of the arable land is In collective and slate fprms. Poland has increased its food exports by 12,1 per .Â·out in the last six years and is low the sixth largest exporter of ood in Iho world. Taxes: Liberal economists con tend that the pending 1962 revenue bill is too pro-business through exemptions proposed for expan sion o[ facilities. They advocate an immediate tax cut for the "lit tie fellows." These exemptions, as well as partial treatment of American- owned foreign firms, in their opinion, will unbalance.future budgets, thereby blocking any tax reduction for millions of lower brack- eteers. Racial legislation: President Kennedy said in the 1960 campaign that housing discrimination could be wiped out "with the stroke of a pen." He has mislaid the pen, according to NAACP spokesmen. Moreover, the integrationists do not believe that he has shown the fervor on this problem that was displayed by Truman and Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt, who is still their Joan of Arc. Labor: George L.

The Lighter Side in Washington By DICK WEST United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI) - Out of the trusty test tubes of the U.S Agricultural Research Service comes today another chapter ii the stirring sage of insect birth control. Can our scientists, working al all deliberate speed, sterilize male screwworm flies faster than they can cross the border from Mexico? That is the question which the Agriculture Department, abettec by a $3 million supplemental appropriation, hopes lo answer within the next three years. The plan was outlined before a House subcommittee by Dr. W.L. Popham, deputy administrator for regulatory programs, who firmly jelieves that it can be done. To Form Barrier Simple in concept, yet breath- .aking In scope, the program basically is this: To create an "artificial barrier" of impotent male lies along the Mexican border to mate with northbound female lies. The department hopes in this roomier not only to stump out screwworms in tho American Southwest, but to keep them from ropopulating the area. That tho flies cnn bo rendered inrron with doses of cobalt (10 Â·ndlalion already has been proven n Florida. Thousands of males so rcalod wore rolcuscd in that .stale lo join in fruitless union with female flies. The ladies consequently laid in fertile eggs and in two years time Florida cattle were rid of the screwworm pest. But Texas is an other matter. Flics Sneak In There was no point in trying to impose sterility on flies in Texas as long as untreated flies in Mex ico could sneak across the Rio Grande and honeymoon with unattached females. Popham and associates now believe they can overcome this problem with a continuous air drop of irradiated flies along tin Mexican border. Popham told the subcommittee there would be a barrier 50 to 100 miles wide "in which flics would be dropped at regular intervals to intercept, so lo speak, anything that may bo flying out of Mexico." If the sterile flics outnumber their more manly brethren, this will keep them from again colonizing the Lone Star state, ho cx- ilnincd, I would like to commend the department for thinking up the plan, which strikes me ns being nn important stop 'forward in nan's conquest of his environment. It should be far more effective han trying (o arrest the alien lies and book them for Mann Act violations. TODAY'S BEST FROM EUROPE ITALY ,.

The Hollywood Scene By Vernon Scott )..UPI Hollywood Correspondent HOLLYWOOD (UPI) -- Inter .isted in the kind of movies you will be seeing for the next three 'ears? Tlie men who know are th right young heads of United Art sts 'Corp. They don't make new as did the moguls of old, the Zanucks, Goldwyns and Mayers iut they make movies and. are confident to let the stars, direc ors and producers take the bows. This past year UA financed tht riggest films in the Academy Award b a l l o t i n g , "West Side Story" and "Judgment at Nurem erg," along with "Sergeants 3,' 'One, Two, Three," "Pocketful ol Miracles" and "The Children's lour." They cost more than $18 mil ion. No major studio nor inde lendent producers is in the same eague. Robert Blumofe, vice presiden. n charge of West Coast produc- ions, is confident that United Art sts' program for the future wil be even more successful. Future Films This week he revealed sched- les for the next three years: 1962^"Birdman of Alcatraz' 'ith Burt Lancaster. "Geronimo' 'ith Chuck Connors. "The Roac o Hong Kong," Hope and Crosby. The Miracle Worker," Anne Bancroft. "The Manchurian Canidate," Frank Sinatra. "The bird Dimension" with Sophia -Wen. 1963--"Tarus Bulba," Yul Bryner and Tony Curtis. "Two For The Seesaw," Robert Mitchum nd Shirley Maclaine. George Steens' "The Greatest Story Ever old." "A Child Is Waiting," urt Lancaster. "The Lonely tate," Judy Garland.

"A Shot in the ark." Mister Moses." There are many others, but lose are the blockbusters. The major studios, too, will be roducting big ones such as "Muny on the Bounty," "Cleopatra" nd "My Fair Lady." "We released 30 pictures last ear," Blumofe said, "And we ope to release another 30 to 35, his year. We believe movies are oming back strong.

"We can'.t begin to count the hundreds of picture:projects'that are proposed to us during the: year. We try to' select only the best, and so far we've been lucky." ' Good Directors, Producers It wasn't luck that led UA to make deals with such directors as William Wyler, George Stevens, Fred Zinncmann, John Stages and Billy Wilder. And it was foresight that led the Mirisch Company, Stanley Kramer, Otto Preminger and Harold Hecht to join the United Artists fold. The company a l s o beta its money on, the brightest- stars, S i n a t r a , Lancaster, Garland, Hope, Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, Maclaine,' Elvis Presley, Curtis, a n d Brynner. . Â· . - Â· , . "We approve- the script, director, actors and budget,"- said Blumofe, "and'then we're out of it.. We, trust the artists, and directors to make good pictures. If; they go over budget we usually go along with them, but most producers and directors are working on a participation basis and want to bring the movies in on schedule. "We are spending $60 million :or pictures'this year. It .may be more than any studio -has ever spent for a slate of pictures," he concluded. "And we firmly be- "ieve it is money well spent."
