Is Too Small For Success Also Ended Play in Old Ford Theatre PHILADELPHIA, April 14. The United Slates was challenged today to help bring about a "social revolution"-In the "underdeveloped countries of the world." President Truman's Point Four program Is not enough, the American Academy of Political and Social Science was told by George Hakim, counselor of the legation of Lebanon. . Hakim was one of a half-dozen speakers at a symposium on Point Tour at the academy's 54lh annual meeting. The Point Four program, as conceived by the President, would supply U.S. economic know-how to the war-ravaged countries of the world. The President called It a "bold new program." : Prof ram Too Small ' Hakim said the program Is "too small to provide any effective contribution" to the economic development of poverty-stricken nations. The masses of the underdeveloped lands, which Hakim said make "p two-thirds ''of the world's population, "are not Interested In concepts of free enterprise, free competition, democracy and human rights. "It Is necessary first to live and not to starve," he asserted. .•And. he said, Point Four Improperly places too great an emphasis on (1) tree enterprise and private capital, , "The poverty - stricken, disease- ridden masse*' of what have been called the underdeveloped countries of tht; world," Hakim' said, "are alowly •wakening to the misery of their condition. "Whatever gain has been obtained for, the national economy (of the underdeveloped countries) wa mainly received by the upper classes constituting * amall minority of the population. But the majority of the people continue to live as they have llnd for centuries on a level bare subsistence." :'.

He entered the Presidential box. shot Lincoln In the head, wounded Vlaj. Rathbone with a bowie knife, lumped on the stage and escaped. Shot Killed Theatre Never again was a play put on at Ford's. The shot that killed Lincoln killed the theatre, too. Laura Kcene and other members of the cast were tossed into Jail pending nn Inquiry. Performances were suspended. When Ford attempted to reopen his theatre, In July, such a howl went up the Idea wa* abandoned. The government took It over, and changed It into an office building. Then tragedy struck again. On June 9, 1893. three floors collapsed, killing 22 clerks and Injuring M olhcrs. Ford's Renovated In 1932, Ford's was renovated. Now it—and the house acrou the street where Lincoln died—are a museum. The theatre has some choice Lincoln items for the 100,000 tourists who go through it each year. Here are the gun and the knife Booth used to kill and to wound. Here Is the flag he tripped over as he hurtled to the stage. Here are the boots Lincoln wore, and a boot Bonth wore—the one that had to be cut off him because he broke hU leg In the fall.
