MONDAY, JUNE 12, 1950 BLYTHEVIT.LE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS ram— Th« Nation Today: Point Four Progi Truman's World Aid P/aa Has Far to Go By James Marlow I ^WASHINGTON, June 12. <AP)— ^fcestdent Truman 1 * Point Rjur program hasn't really started yet and I no one c*n say how far It will go, how well It will work, or where it will end. It's been talked about for 17 months, ever since January, 1949, when Mr. Truman made nLs inaugural address, At that time he mentioned a number of things he thought this country should do in a world becoming ha If-Communist. One of them, which he called Point Pour, had this aim: helping backward countries to a better life and more progress, faster, How? In se vc ral ways: w ith brains, skfll and money, We could send in American experts to show them how to grow better crops, wipe out diseases, modernize education, use water power for electricity. U.S. Investment Then American men could invest money In those countries. For profit, of course. But they'd be creating jobs and helping .the people there. Until recently this was all Rome- thing which was talked about in ikmgre&s and the newspapers, but iPbt acted upon. But now Congress Tins approved the idea. As approved, the plan calls for this country to spend $35,000.000 the first year. But the approval of the idea is only just that. Congress still hasn't vpted the money for carrying it out. Congress to Vote : It's expected to do that, too, al. though we'll have to wait to sec whether Congress votes the 535,000,000 or less. Then, a year from now, the whole business will have to come up in Congress again. It- will be handled on a year-by- year basis so Congress can review what's been accomplished and decide whether it will let the plan die • and cut off the money or keep it going and vote more money. About 60 nations are In line for this kind of Point Four irelp. That Is, there nre that many which could benefit from such help. But the State Deptnenrtment will have to decide who gets what. If any. The plan itself is new only in the sense that it has been set up as a definite program by the President. For years we have had & kmd ol Point Four program. In Latin America; We've sent in some of our ex- perLs In farming, education, public health and other fields to help our southern neighbors. * ,And American businesses have ln- JJ^ested there. For example, in ol! "and mining. *:'>' Similar Program* And the United Nations, through its food and agricultural organization and the world health orga* nizatlon, have carried out similar programs in backward countries. In the case of the Point Pour program, It will take years probably before the results of experts sent in this year or next can begin to show real results. Yet, this country Is In a dilemma. Th« U.S, wants to stop communism which makes Ite appear to people in backward conn t rl es, promising them a better and fuller life. US. Miut Act Tills country, the great antagonist of communism and ^ r e a t preacher of the virtues of capitalism and democracy, can't sit idly by, doing nothing, while the Communists move into the backward Jlaces. At least, that's the reasoning of Mr. Truman and of Congress, loo, since it's approved t lie plan. Of course, there's always the question whose answer we won't know for some time: , Will this help be enough to stop communism? Are we starting too late? Is the plan, as It stands, big enough and broad enough, to do the Job? Doctor Sander May Be Given Back License WOLPEBOnO, AT. H., June 12. .n—The tieaet of tile New Hampshire State ooard of Registration in Medicine 'presumes" his five- member body will reinstate Dr. Hermann N. Bander. Dr. J.
