Wewapaper Publlahera Aaa'p TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 1949 Drain Of War For some time American industrialists have been concerned about America's high grade iron ore position. The almost inexhaustible Mesabi range of northern Minnesota has been one of the prime factors in America's industrial leadership, the ore being cheaply produced, abundant and of high quality. But the strain of the two world wars and America's Industrial expansion have reduced the reserves in this great resource to only a few years. Then the steel industry will be compelled to fall back upon lower grade iron ores,. which are abundant but costlier, or rely hazardously upon foreign supplies. This uncertain outlook, together with the question about oil supplies in the future, is disquieting in relation to America's future position as a world power able to defend itself against all enemies. Steel and oil are the sinews of a modern nation. There is some comfort in the evidence that Russia, too, is running short of high grade iron ore because of heavy drains upon the supply. The Urals, source of Russia's iron, are being depleted rapidly. Use of ore of lesser quality is causing inferior industrial output. Whether approaching scarcity if the raw materials of war will >e conducive' to peace is to be .een. It Most Not Happen Much has been heard recently ; bout the destructive powers of : tomie bombs used in warfare. '.Vould whole cities be destroyed . ad the entire population killed? How wide an area would be affected by a single explosion? How fir from the scene would a person have to be to be secure from immediate or later harm? What happened to -the Japanese cities thus attacked offers the only authentic answer to these 'peculations. And that informa- lion is not heartening. Hiroshima, prior to the bomb••-Lg, had an estimated population of 400,000, although hundreds had !:een evacuated because of war. Of that population, 85,000 survive :it the present time. Japanese officials say that 78,000 died as a result of the bombing. The city itself was practically destroyed Hiroshima is being rebuilt, with all construction of a modern type including some 2,000 housing units Present population is 260,000. Modern atomic bombs are known to be more potent and effective than those dropped on the Japanese cities. Results of an atomic war are too horrible to contemplate. It must not happen. Implementing A Dream Interplanetary night is as yet a fantastic dream, but the Aero Medical Association of New York has on its agenda studies to prepare man physically and mentally to endure such flights. So far man in his high flying has been called upon to meet nuunly the problems of oxygen in rarefied atmosphere. Now such problems as reduced gravity, ac- celeration.environmental hazards vision and collision with meteor! ites are under survey. There is no information about how the lungs and heart would act in flight be- «£^f* he stratosphere. What about the absolute cold beyond Earths atmosphere? The Navy is making a small be- gmn,ng through its centrifuge, a machine in which human fol er . S £ », fantastic s P«*d s are tested. Mechanical breathers are also being experimented with. These are special protective suits with oxygen masks. All this may come to nothing Man has the dream to fly to the Moon or to Mars, but not all his dreams are realizable. He can however, prepare fliers fw . g dazzhng speeds with which they are to-flit through this planet's finTTv, '• Wheth " °,an will find the means or the courage to break compa B y with gravity and go gadding about in unex^ Plored space only the future can Economy That Failed Some months ago. when there were indications the federal ministration might turn its tention to the matter of gov ment economy a report came uu of Washington that 200,000 civilian employes, no longer needed, would be lopped off the payroll! It was the best news weary taxpayers had heard in a long time. However, as usual nothing came ad- at- govern- i out of it, and so far as anybody knows the 200,000 are still slurping at the federal trough. But that isn't the whole story. Instead of a reduction in the number of civilian employes, many thousands have been added, and the total will soon exceed the peacetime record of 2,150,000 marked up in 1947. Those wise to the ways of modern politics had little or no faith in the promises of economy in the federal government. Nero fiddled while Rome burned, but Washington is twiddling its thumb while the citizens freeze for want of coal. If that energy used by the armed services quarreling with one another were directed against an enemy, America would be safe against all comers. Do You Remember?

(International) j^u^WASHINGTON MARCH OF EVENTS United States to Back Marshal Tito to Hilt World Bank Considering Large Yugoslavian Loan Special to Central Press TFTASHINGTON—The United States has determined to back Mar- W shal Tito of Yugoslavia to the hilt It is going to give all pon- alble assistance short of war to Tito's continuing flght against Russia. In fact.'if the Soviets atari guerrilla warfare through their uatel- Htes the United States is ready to lift the embargo on arms to the Balkan nation Meantime, this country is going right down the economic line with Tito and his generals—as long as they keep on battling the Kremlin brand of Communism The World Bank, whose major support cornea from the United States, is considering a 200- million-dollar loan to Yugoslavia to bolster the economic means of the struggling power Further, the United States has authorized Tito to buy a multl-milllon-dollar steel mill in thi* country Ostensibly the mill would be used to roll rails and similar industrial equipment. Once constructed, it could just aa easily be UMd to further a Tito arms building program Reason for this backing of a Red regime is simple Tito, by his refusal to obey Kremlin orders, is seriously undermining morale in the Russian satellites—and the United States wants the good work to keep going. Marshal Tito • CZECH PURGE—Next door to Yugoslavia, the fight for democracy is not going- as well. Private reports reaching Washington say the Czech Red rulers have marked for "liquidation" about 20.000 so-called "enemies of the state." These reports, compiled by Czech exile sources, say the Prague Ministry of the Interior-has a cara-index of some 60,000 names of Czechs considered to be active enemies of the regime. The Soviet satellite government's purge is reported to be so intensive that the list of "enemies" includes the names of some Communists themselves. Exile sources say that the purge already is under way and that prisons are so full the g-overnment is busy erecting concentration camps to hold its political enemies. Details of the purge are; of course, sketchy but it is said that most of the persons listed* for "liquidation" are arrested directly on orders of the NKVD. dread Russian secret police. * * * * • GOVERNMENT COSTS—The mounting cost of our government is rapidly approaching the day when it will take a bigger slice out of our pocketbook than the amount we spend for food. That's the simple explanation of government expenditures—in dollars and cents terms—recently offered by the Institute of Life Insurance. Here are the Institute's findings: For every dollar spent on food in .the United States in 1948. 98 cents was spent on government; for every dollar spent on food In 1947. 90 cents went for government expenditure*. Furthermore, the over-all cost of government in 1946 was more than three times the cost of housing, more than double household operating: expenses and twice the amount spent for clothing, acce*- sories and jewelry combined. * » • • • ATTENTION, SUSAN B.
