What may really be the world's greatest problem— the tremendous population upsurge— stands in the shadows behind the conferring statesmen. No one would argue for an instant that the matters which have^ engaged the men at Geneva are inconsequential. Possible settlement of issues that -otherwise might lead to hydrogen warfare obviously is of paramount, significance. Yet the statesmen might be /.much more willing to. settle if they were prepared to measure realistically the steadily, building population pressures .which beset the. world. Some. of the predictions -of .the .population- experts arc staggering. Suppose, for example, that a' hydrogen war erupted 'and wiped out the entire Russian.: and American" people's (382 million) but-s6meho>y mirac- liiously spared the rest, of the world, At' normal rates of wortnvgrowth, this deficit would be:- made upiintleir.;; ?

The rate of increase, worldwide, is " 1 per cent a year. For long ages it was .02. At the outset of the 19th century it had climbed to 0.3 per cent, and it has been rising most of the tinic "since. In the great underdeveloped lands --China, India, Pakistan, Egypt and others -in.. Asia, Africa and Latin America — the present rate is closer to 3 per cent a year. Here in areas already swamped with people, the "burden grows more crushing every day. These lands find it almost impossible even to keep pace economically with, the population growth,' let alone lift their living standards. Since World War II, Pakistan has boosted food output 20,per cent,:ausi.zable achievement. Yet today it provides 10 per , cent, less 'food : per person than in 1940, because population has mounted so fast. - • - ' > ^-WASHINGTON-— The story of last week's widely scattered elections is simply: "More of the : same." That is, the significant Democratic victories over a wide terrain — lin Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Indi, ana, Kentucky, Connecticut, New York -7- continued sweeping the trend back to the Democratic party that began early in the Eisenhower 'Administration nearly three years .': ago.' '.' ...• ' ; .-;• / . , It,has-been exhibited since 'in special Congressional elections and in off-year, elections, with the most .. far-reaching and solid triumph being the recapture of Congress in the 1954 elections. The movement appears to be picking up momentum. It prompts Democrats to ask themselvc once again this question: .How, can we win all the battles '.. and lose the war? That ,is, win all tHe elections in between and'lose' the Presidency in 1956.: others than could the late President Franldin D. Roosevelt. 'UNDER INDIA'S recent planning, 15 million farm acres may be added by 1956. But the extra food output will be largely consumed-in providing:basic sustenance ' fct the nearly .five million Indians added to the country's population yearly. Not' even the most bountiful lands can ignore the potential dangers. We may avoid the distress and famine that repeatedly have visited .less fortunate areas and now may do so more often. But we could reach a , critical point in three 'or four decades where we will find it hard to maintain and advance our prized living" standards. The scholars have had this problem long enough. It's time it found its way to the highest (funcil tables. If it doesn't get there pretty soon, some- of the matters the statesmen do consider may begin to look like schoolboys' games in .comparison. , The Unkjwivn Jews A: MODEST immortality is insured the late . Prof. Jacques : Faitlovilch of Paris because he brought to the world's attention an unknown colony of Jews, the Falashas of Ethiopia. Their nation was for many-, years . almost forgotten by .Europeans, and the existence of this group "came as a surprise. The Falashes are not, as a press report had it, Negroes, though, like some olhcr Ethiopians, a few may have an admixture of Negro blood. They are Semites, like the Jews and Arabs, and have been in Ethiopia for for almost 2,000 years. Their connection with the main body of their faith is so remote that they have never heard of the Talmud, the code of laws on which the traditional conduct of Jews is based. They do not care for trade, but are proficient farmers They may number from 150.000 to 200,000. and are not found outside it Ethiopia. To have become an,authority on * subject as specialized as the Ethiopian Jews is a unique epitaph. Nightmare Out Loud ONE WAY A LARGE-SCALE'; road building program might be paid for, suggests D. Louis Tonti, executive director of the Garden State Parkway of New Jersey, would be to enact a special $100 tax on every car or truck manufactured in the next : 10 years. He estimates that this would produce nine billion dollars, as the manufacturers expect to produce 9,000,000 cars a year through 1965. This would be a simple way to raise money, but anyone can imagine the yells that would rise. Almost every buyer of a new car or truck would vole enthusiastically against the lawmakers who added $100 to the price of his car to say nothing of what they'd do to Mr. Tonti. if, given a chance. A good man should dream of paying for needful tilings like highways, but people should dream with their own money, or at least not dream such frightening things out loud, HITHERTO there have been twp factors to stir doubts about 1956. One was President Eisenhower's continuing popularity. Democrats were afraid that, despite all the ; signs;favoring them in off-year and special. elections, the President, .might be able to win on his,own and retain the White House for the GOP, even if the party lost Congress. . . But with President Eisenhower prc' \bly out as a candidate for reelection, Democrats are looking at last week's results perspective. Those results seem to offer additional proof that the Democratic party still is the majority party in our country and .should be able to win if the contest is party against party without any countervailing influence such as the pop- v ularity of the President. They are becoming convinced, too, that' the .President's magic works only if he. himself, is the candidate, that he can no more transfer his own popularity • to THAT WAS demonstrated in last years Congressional election which the Republican party lost despite..a personal campaign by Mr. Eisenhower on behalf of-Republican candidates that was more, thorough and strenuous than any b. a previous President. In reinforcement'-of the non- translatable nature of 'the President's personal popularity,^ Democratic National Chairman Paul Butler, now comes along to tell how Republican attempts tc capitalize "On the President in last Tuesday's etecMon were to no avail. He cited campaign literature featuring the President as well as full-page newspaper advertisements appealing to voter "not to let Ike down." The second factor that has clouded Democratic hopes to recapture the Presidency next year is "peace and prosperity" which Republicans have picked as thuir chief is, sue on the theory that people never vole out an Administration when limu are good. But there are some among us who do not consider times are good for them, including farmers. Some Democratic analysts professed to see ; reflection of this in the virtual revolt 1 'ion in Indiana that swept out Republican mayors and substituted Democrats in town after, wn oferthe farm market kind, the biggest such upheaval since 1930. In such towns business and businessmen are dependent upon the farmers .and their prosperity depends upon prosperity in agriculture. come. As to Indiana, Chairman Butler also said this: "One of the most interesting results in Indiana is the-Democratic victory .in Evjnsville, county seat of Vanderburgh County, which has always .been considered a .'forecast county'. Since 1892, Vanden-. burgh County has alwa.-s voted for the winner -'T Presidential electrons.." The Indiana.' result as well as the injection of the President into campaigns here and there by Republicans in a vain attempt to check the Democratic tide w»uld seem to give some refutation to the bland assertion of Republican National Chairman Leonard Hall that "Tuesday's elections had no national significance" and his further assertion that the scattered contests" -vere "fought on- purely local issues." WHAT HAP D ENED in Indiana has real meaning against the back ground of a warning uttered here p. few weeks ago by Republican Senator William ; Jenner of that State as he told of the dhcontent in Indiana's farm market towns because of the fall in farmer in- THE TALL YOUNG Republican newcomer with the reformer approach, 35-year-old W.

But it didn't work.-against the successful Democratic candidate, Richardson Dilwrrth. former dis-- trict attorney and a key figure in the Democratic, reform movement in Philadelphia who will continue the reform administration of the present Democratic mayor, Joseoh Clark. Unlike Chairman 7Iall, other Republicans see 'plenty of national significance in the party's successive set-backs in Pennsylvania which they blame on the GOP Old Guard there directed by national committeeman Mason Owlett. pro- tege of the aged and now retired Joe Grundy. Some are fearful that what happened Tuesday, on top of the loss of the governorship a year ago, portends loss of the st'.te lo Democrats in Ihe Presidential election. (United Feature Syndicate, Inc.) PeterEd son Trivial Paper Work Burden To President WASHINGTON—(NEA)-Shortly before President Eisenhower went to Denver on vacation, Gerald D, Morgan, White House special counsel, walked into the Chief Executive's office and said with a wry jsmile.-"Mr. President, we have a very important matter for you to consider-this morning." Morgan laid on the. President's desk a great stack of papers. It contained blueprints and specifications for a fish hatchery some place out west. Under the law, the President had to give his approval of the design before work could begin. At another time, Morgan had to bring in for presidential approval, a proposed public works bond issue for Hawaii. On still another occasion, the President—along with the commissioners of two Virginia counties- had to sign the contract for' the construction of a new section of the George Washington memorial highway, along the Potomac. The law requires this. It is a joint project of a state and the federal government. been 'confirmed by the Senate. The President is not relieved of his responsibilities for actions taken bv subordinates. THESE ARE typical examples of the thousands of things which the U. S. presidency is saddled by . law. In the four cases given, all the paper work was prepared by lawyers and engineers and fish experts in Department of Interior: The natural question to ask is why full authority to handle t such to the Secretary of Interior, to relieve the President of part of his desk load. Just after the Eisenhower administration came to town, Ber : nard Shanley, former special counsel to the President and until recently his appointment secretary, 1 started a project of this kind.

Eisenhower, at his July meeting with Soviet^ Premier Bulganin, said something of "great ^ benefit',' to mankind might come of it. And the Russians talked of the "spirit ... of mutual trust." Mutual trust is what the foreign ministers showed the least of at their present meeting, which was supposed to be the first big test af the Geneva spirit. And the "great benefit" to mankind hasn't appeared unless it is in men's ears which, since Geneva, got some relief from the strident criticism the United States and Rulsia had burled at each other. Both sides toned it down. BEFORE THEY quit the foreign ministers will probably issue-a statement that tries to put a pleasant face on their dismal meeting and say they hope to meet again.

Three heavy workloads that have been lifted are: Authority to order disposal of farm surpluses. It was given to the secretary of agriculture. Authority to call reserve units of the armed forces to active duty. It was given to the secretary of defense. Forty-five ' specific responsibilities placed on the President by the Mutual Security Act of 1954. They were divided among the secretaries of state and defense and the he,ad of the International Cooperation Administration. Special Counsel Morgan has taken up this project where Shanley left off.

And there was the gray-haired Quinn in his blue serge suit and his blue polka- dot tie, looking exactly like a corporation vice- president in the movies. Distinguished, is the word. HE QUOTED at some length from his first book, concerning- the philosophy of bigness. Sen. Estes Kefauver was . fascinated. . He wanted to read more. And what, please, was the name of this book? Author Quinn shuttered. 'He got red around the back of his neck. He said he didn't rightly remember. "You mean you wrote a book and you do not recall its title?" demanded the Senator. "Well, said Quinn. it was an old and he just what he called it. The gentleman from Tennessee subsided, looking disappointed. And. that's where my special service comes in. For the benefit of author Quinn I can announce that he wrote this book in 1943. He titled it: "Liberty, Employment. No More Wars." I suggest he paste this paragraph in his hat. "MOTELS Mushroom in Canada," says the heading of an item in a recent .issue of the Canadian government's Weekly Rulletin. The item notes that motels have sprung up at a spectacular rate in Canada since World War II. The spread of motels began in Vancouver on the west coast. It has extended' clear to the east coast, and Ontario now has some 700 motels as against 75 in 1949. This may not seem like news of Great significance, and yet it is especially when it is considered as a symbol of the great changes taking place north of the border. The view that Canada is esseri- •tially a vast open space, producing quantities of wheat, oil and newsprint but not very civilized, is still. widely held. Canada does indeed pour out such things bounteously, but this is by no means the only measure .of its importance. '-.'.'. Canada is undergoing changes' little short of revolutionary. By means of advanced technology and the energy of a growing, young people, it is developing a wealth of raw materials. In the process of growth it is becoming one of the important free world powers.
