Secretary of Stale Marshall's Commencement address at Harvard on June 5 lilted It from n basis of counlry-by-country aid to a' piosram lor help to Europe on a continental scale. Now he makes . clear th»t his concept is not limited to Western Europe. It Includes all nations willing to work for European recovers'. Yes, Russia and the Soviet satellites. It is ii)i to them. Mr. Marshall Is on the riulit track. He has received immediate support fro|ji Senator Van- dcnbsrg. Mr. vandenbcrg would put the Marshall plans on a bipartisan basis and relnloree them with expert analysis of United States resources or serving the world's and its own best interest. For further evidence, note the British response to the change of emphasis in American plans. The British are welcoming Mr. Marshall's proposals. They are doing so despite the possibility that Uic new approach might mean tliat there would be proportionately less direct American aid to Dritain than under earlier policies. The favorable response of British opinion Is Instructive if we examine the reason for it. For then we find that Brilons trnce many of l!ieir economic troubles not only lo llicir uwn lack, of dollars, but to the world's lack. The British have long hoped that the United States will take steps to get dollars distributed throughout the world. If Americans do this, the British are confident that Britain will be able to get Its share ol dollars tlitvuBh trade with the rest of the world. The British problem is only Die problem ot many Individual nations. A. statement from Australia graphically illustrates the point: Selling all hcr wool to England, Fiance, or Belgium makes Australia prosperous, but it does not enable her to buy one cent's worth ol American goods; that cau only l>c done with dollars, and the possession of all Hie francs or sterling in tlic world will not give Australia dollars. . . . Similarly, the celling of French wines or silks to Australia helps France, bill It does not enable her to buy American exports. There arc simply not enough dollars circulating in the world markets lo permii these nations to buy what they need from America. If they could buy these things, world trade would loosen up; prosperity be more general. Tills Is why the Marshall plan for aid to all Europe looks good in the now-not-to-tlghl little Island Just off Europe's coast. From an American point of view, too, it has its points. A co-ordinated program lor nil Europe would help to create a workable economic balance among the various nations in Europe. With this Europe itself could do much, as Mr. Marshall expects it to do, to foster prosperity for Itself. Moreover, the distribution of American dollars through the channels ol world trade means that other peoples will 'f.AVK the. wherewithal to buy American goods. This lact may seem only relatively important while shortages exist In the United States. But when American 'production begins to overtake domestic demand, as it must before very long the dollars Americans cast on dark and uncertain waters today may come back in the form of welcome business from a prosperous world market. —CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR Wrong Way to Teach an Old Dog New Tricks Jt Uncle Sam Plays Benevolent Sucker's Role in Movie Deal Tin DOCTOR SAYS BY WILLIAM A. O'BRIEN, M. D. Wrilte nror NEA -Service A young surgeon ha<1 experienced waves ol Intense fatigue about 4:30 every afternoon for nearly 10 years.

(UP) — Today I want you to meet Uncle, Sam In beret and sports jacket, as the bash!ul Mr. Moneybags behind the production of a high-class costume movie. Uncle (and I lioiw Hollywood Is taking notes on my tale as the for a I'ipsnorting comedy of Wild West) Found himself at w end with the basic magnesium plant outside of Las Vegas, Nev. As far as the eye could sec stretched the • mighty factories, the mills and the warehouses, from which spewed the metal that did so much to lick the Japs. So vast was this $135,000,000 enterprise that It included a whole new city, named Henderson. Uncle tried to sell his magnesium works, but nobody seemed to want it because of the high cost of electricity to turn its wheels. Through his War Assets Administration, Uncle sought then to rent his factory U» folks who could use at least part of it; alter all, he was spending $200,000 a month just' to a z va- guard It and provide running water to the residents of Henderson. A brick company rented a piece of the plant. So did a Jewelry maker and a brewer of caustic soda. Along c:une the agents of Allied Productions, Inc., of New York, a movie concern.

It tits the theory that modern youths think their parents have money to burn. By FETER KDSOV NKA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON. June 20. (NEA) —"What Can We Do for Europe?" Is now the number pnc question in circles where International atTalrs arc discussed, and It lias everyone talking hi circles. Intimations tliat tnc U. S. has a five or a ten-year plan all worked out — that it will be a pea^c- timE! lend-lease pljn •— or tha r . 1^ v.-ill be strictly a I-MII program Jvith every expectation that repayment and Interest will be demanded. In full — all sii"h 5oss:«> Is puTiy in the realm of ;• p? :ulation. v There Is no American plan fur Europe, period. ' There will be no American plan till the European leaders get together and decide what they need. Secretary of State George C. Marshall has said this. Undersecretary Will Clayton, in charge of economic affairs, has repeated and emphasis od the words of his boss. Still the Idea dies hard. It woulcl'bc so much nicer if somebody had a plan. Part nf this general belief that the U. S. has a plan all worked out comes from the fact that Secretary Marshall now has a long range policy planning staff, meeting in a conference room adjoining his palatial office in the new Stale Department building. Head of this policy group Is George P. Kcnnan, a career Foreign Service officer with 21 years' experience, including three assignments in Moscow. Working with him are Joseph E. Johnson, American expert on UN Security Council policy; Ware Adams, formerly mi adviser to General Elsenhower in tlic U.

It s a confidential staff with no administrative duties - Its only job to think. STATE DEPARTMENT FUNCTION .Secretary Marshall's idea that the problems of Europe must be treated'. a£ a whole rather than piecemeal; "nnd (lint European countries must work out their own plan for salvation, may have conic from this planning staff. The idea got Its big build-up from Marshall's speech at Harvard commencement. It is not, however, a new idea. It was first presented by the U. S. delegation . to the UN General Assembly lait March. The suggestion was. accepted and nn Economic Commission for Europe, now !:nowu as ECE, wns created. It held Its first meeting In Geneva last May So there is a suing UN concern ti study Europe's needs. Next meeting of ECE will open in Geneva July 5 Will 'Clayton will be present as U. S. representative. The bi;; question before ECK will lie what the. European countries can do to make themselves independent and get back on their feet, willi a minimum of u. S. aid. Clayton points out that the problem of determining the ability of and so on. No wheels have yet beci set in' motion to grind out this in formation. KEY IS EUROPEAN PRODUCTION Concerning Europe's approachin Teat need for dollars with whic ,o buy what It lacks, there may be some misunderstanding.' -Emphas las so far been put on the need to Ale U. S- to buy more foreign goo; to give Europe .more dolla with which to buy food, fibers, an fuel. Undersecretary Clayton says tha actually the U. S. has imported more from abroad than it did before tlic war. There is a demand In tile II. S. for still more imports. Europe's trouble 15 that It cannot produce a surplus of anything to export — cannot even produce e- nougli for its own needs. To get Europe in a position to export more to the U. S. Its owr. level of production must be stepped up. That requires more raw materials than Europe used to import. Buying them Is what runs up Europe's shortage o£ dollars In the vicious circle. The situation is becoming more urgent all the time. Whether It will wait for the next Congress to settle Is a question. About half the protein which is alen in meat, fish, cheese, milk,' and certain vegetables Is hanged over to sugar in the body. The shift is so slow the pancreas not stimulated excessively and ow blood sugar does not result. | If low blood sugar i s suspected, he time of day the symptoms de- elop is important in distinguishing he different types. Without treatment tlic nervous variety docs not get any better or worse while those which result from disease of the liver tend to become >rogrcssively more severe. ' QUESTION: Should children with ever drink carbonated beverages? ANSWER: Carbonated water is absorbed more rapidly than plain water, and its sugar content is of value in fever. ed. They settled down in rented houses at Henderson. , First inking Uncle had that a^ 1 ' was not well at the studio came ' when the six movie makers fell behind in the rent on their bungalows. They seemed to be broke. The U. S. Senate by now was wondering out loud about Uncle's filer In the field of the cinema. How much money, demanded Sen. Homer F- Ferguson ol Mich., was Allied Productions, Inc., paying Uncle In rents? The War Assets boys said not a cent, because the lease called for payments only when actual movie making began. These spokesmen added that Uncle couldn't cancel the lease unless he proved that Allied Productions, Inc.. was insolvent. He couldn't" do that. "Why not?" asked Sen. Ferguson. Well sir, said Uncle, he'd tried and he'd tried, but he couldn't find Allied Productions, Inc.
