And he thinks something hor.'-cl ns done about, it. The bis question is where to bc- nin. As a «tnrtsr McNutt suggests that in the Mirvey to see how much more aid the United States give the war-tern world, nt- tcniion should fllso be given to wbH the United States needs from the rest c.S 'the world. When this list Ls compiled. Mc- \rkansan. In Tokyo when he visited Japan earlier this year. believc.s it show that the U. S. needs most is raw matctfalT. Rubber, (ats and oils, tin. copper, lead. zinc. hemp, silk, Kpra. .spice 1 *, dru 1 :? and other i»a- ttM-ials w'hioh t^^nnot b^ fcund hero in-.sufficient ql^antity. Europe can supply very little of these needs. But Asia and the pacific islands eon produce all '.ve can use. Asia also could ns^ 'more finished goodi li!<-.t, the United States has fen expert. All the nec- rr.sTy jfactors are present to promote -trade.

What's needed is -to develop trails, doing it en a barter basis il necessary at first, to yet business touted. McNutt ils high'y critical of wlv.iv he calls "the old London-Paris- Rome axis in the U. S. State Department." By this he means that the ablest diplomats are uhMivi sent lo Einropean posts, while the Orient tends to be neglected. MoNut-t would like, to sec tills trend reversed, so that more and better U.S. government represent.- afcivcs are .sent to the Crieni, to develop American trade. Various estlivv'.cs have teen made on how much aid the-United State-s can give to he'p rehabilitate .the world. Harold SU'.ssen suggests "ten per cent of U.S. pro- ('uct ; ou for ten years," Henry Wallace $153 b'Dlon in ton yi-rs. Fortune magazine $100 billion in 50 yea rs. McNutt will mnko no CF'.im-.ite of his o\vn. .But 'he decs believe that a sizable proportion—perhaps nid Is given— might well be invested in Pacific coun'.ric-'i.
