United Nations Study Population Reduction of Death Rates Lead Toward Economic Changes GENEVA UP) — The spectacular reduction in death rates in tti£ last two years and the steady increase of population in many parts of the world may lead to a stnpendoi problem In social and economic readjustment, some sociologists of the United Nations believe. The World Health Organization reported recently that the area of the world in which deaths are recorded is "enjoying the lowest mortality ever recorded". While this reduction is most pronounced in Europe, a similar reduction was recorded tn India'. Ceylon and Japan. Although the rate remain* comparatively high in Egypt, thero has been a reduction there too. The United Nations Population : Commission has given "first priority' 1 to i; .study of the interrelationship of economic, social and population change. 1 ;. Officials here ;ny this is a "major scientific -study". The commission will seek to discover the conditions under which populations grow faster than the economic resources of the area involved. They want fo know al.«> what .steps can be taken to keep population growth within bounds. A study already is under way in India where the population increased by 50.000,000 persons between 1930 and 1940, The population commission, although well aware that its study wiU take years, hopes to obtnin information which will help improve the welfare of the world's people. The secretariat of the commissif)!\ is engaged in a survey of all available literature and ^tati.stic.s on the subject from which it will soon prepare a summary for the commission. One official, in trying to put the problem of the commission In lay terms, said it was to discover "how economic and social policies may be used to influence population changes so H3 tc avoid unfortunate results." The ideal, proportional relationship between population and economic resources, is "such an abstraction It has no meaning," this official said. "If everything were static, thru we could determine what should he the proper number of people to be provided with trie best po.vnble living conditions." he said. "But that is unrealistic." A pnpcr submitted -to the commission says "the entire make-np 01 society is tn a state of contimial change. The economic, demographic and social structure rarely remain:* constant. Changes in any one of its components are accompanied by changes in the others." The population commission is seeking the key to a better living for the people of the world in tho exact working of these comijrnimt.s and their effect on each oilier. The experts point to Java a.s an illustration of fhe problem. The Dutch have been in Java for a century They have bo en raising the conditions of living, Improving agricultural methods and modernizing the country. But the population has increased enormously, perhaps as a result of these improvements, and it is regarded as debatable whether the people are better off than they were before. .Sri in most couni lies there »rr i r'nmrmmisl parties which arc conducting luideif-ruund opeiidions. Part of the secrecy Ls to ironcrnl thr extent of the Red orw:uii/ation; part !5 because some of ihr* opern- (ions are subversive and sire aimrci at overthrow o! the {government. Obviously there is link- of humor in the lives of such ideological zealots. One can only add the observation that perhaps democracy could loam a u.sefu! le.sson from this ideological training of youth. Far more imghf be done in our .schools, and through legitimate youth urjvmi Anti-Suicide Fence fails To Stop Veterans' Plunge PASADENA. Calif.. June 1. <&>— A 26-year old airforce veteran died yesterday in the first succe.'v.sft]! plunge from towering Colorado St. Bridge since a 10-foot anti-suicide fence was erected a do?.en years a«o. Herbert John Reeves Jr., 26. who fought in Europe and Africa, became Ihe 9vtd to die fro«i the span. He scaled the fence and let go. despite a pleading, ciy from FI pn.ssins: motorist, .said Police Lieut. M. F. Judkins. Judriins said Reeves left a note paying only that he had good reason to die, and a will leaving nl! liis property to his mother. The youth's crushed body was found at the bol- tom of Ihe Arroyo Seco. 2<X) feet below. The fence was erected in 1937 to halt a long string of suicides.
