SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 1957 THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE and LOGANSPORT PRESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA PAGE ELEVEN World Population Goes Up 120,000 Each Day . *. __»-. A -. * /TT-n \ T*» II-. n ^ -.*.*. **« mliT^ /v»» /v^fo PTT*ATinl AC 11 WASHINGTON (UP) — In the five minutes yon spend reading thU dispatch, the population of the world will grow by about 450 persons. It has increased by 120,000 since you read yesterday's newspaper. By this time next year, there will be 43,000,000 more human beings on earth than there are right now. By the end of the present century, at the present rate of increase, the population of the world will be 5,400,000,000—double the present figure. Authority for these statements is the United Nations Demographic Yearbook, an annual compilation of population statistics from all parts of the world. The new edition discloses that the postwar population explosion is still in full swing, particularly in underdeveloped countries. The introduction of modern health mea• sures in these countries has .caused death rates to drop sharply, but birth rates generally remain at traditional high levels. The result is that world population is growing at the fastest rate in history, approximately 1.7 per cent a year. The rate was 1.2 per cent only four years ago. Prior to World War II, it never exceeded 1 per cent. Latin America Leads The most rapid increases are taking place in underdeveloped areas which are least able to feed additional mouths. Latin America leads the world with an annual population growth of 4.4 per cent. Africa and Southwest Asia are | to close behind with 4 per cent, according to the U.N. survey. Both the United States and Russia are growing at a rate of 1.7 per cent—She world average. ease or other catastrophies unless human beings act soon to "bring about some limitation" of their own fertility. He then expounds a view that brings him into direct conflict with the Roman Catholic Church and other religious groups which oppose "artificial" birth control: "Fertility limitation by contraception is the only acceptable means of reducing the rate of population increase." To those who hold- that contraception is immoral, Hertzler re plies that over - populated countries, threatened with starvation, always resort to some form of birth control. If it isn't contraception, he says, it will be such "frightful acts of desperation as abortion, sterilization and deliberate killing of newborn babies. J .'T>he situation seems to resolve itself into a'choice between contraception and some kind oi murder," _^_^_^ ii ' ' Marshal Zhukov Doesn't Look Like Number Two Communist .•~._- im _„ An « _»_"«—i .«f fVi A "Drrael/ 1 !

Joseph K. Wexman, director of the Management Seminar for Smaller Business at the University ol Chicago, said many .merging companies have overlooked oiie essential ingredient for success'- good management. Of the estimated 5,00i» mergers since World War H, he said, oniy a small percentage actually have proved successful. '' "True, some of the mergers were entered upon merely to sell off the assets of the companies that were purchased," Wexman said. "But most mergers were made to expand the buying company. Cites Ill-Fated Mergers "And in many such cases outcome was disastrous. The buy- ng companies just didn't see that brings to mind the 1JJO i v**fc»£* n»w*i »-•* -""e insistence of Russian experts before the Kremlin dispute that the Russian armed forces were not involved in politics and that Zhukov had no political'ambitions. Belgrade dispatches reported before Zhukov's arrival that he would try to sell Tito the idea of making Russia his sole source of arms, instead of getting weapons from 'the United States, and that Tito would refuse. After Zhukov's visit the dispatches said that he seemed to have accomplished little if anything in negotiations. It is true that during the visit Tito recognized the Communist puppet government of East Germany. But- that hardly was a matter with which ZhukW was concerned.

A Scarce Commodity A machinery company bought up companies producing cans, radio jarts, heavy machinery and candy. Sales soared 'from 1/7- million dollars to 57 million in one -y ear But profits dropped to'; less than one' million, compared with $2,300,000 the year before. "The scarcest commodity today or any time is good management," Wexman said. "Not finding this in a hurry, a company might send a vice -president experienced in electronics to manage a newly acquired subsidiary producing • ice cream." • • No doubt the merger idea is sound, Wexman said, "if the parent company does not overlook the compatibility of the proposed project with its own operations." "But where good management is lacking," he said, "not all the financial resources in the world can ensure success." Brawls follow US Grid Game corpora INDIANAPOLIS Iff) - One you* machine i was injured ; seriously and three others were arrested Friday night "the most hated man many." He is Walter Ulbricht, 64, the stocky, cold-eyed boss of the East German Communist party and Moscow's "star pupil" among satellite leaders. This fall the Russians have reason to pin Red stars on him. While rumblings of discontent against Moscow domination swell elsewhere in Eastern Europe, Ulbricht has killed off stirrings of independence among the IB million East Germans. The bearded Stalinist dictator has whipped East Germany into the No. -1 Soviet satellite. Industrially, East Germany now ranks second to Russia within the Soviet bloc. Strategically, it provides bases for 22 Russian divisions and supporting air units—the main Soviet striking force confronting Western Europe. Blocks Independence • Politically, the East German puppet regime has given Russia a legal facade for blocking creation of a reunited Germany through free elections. To reward Ulbricht, Soviet party chief Nikita Khrushchev recently flew to East Berlin, kissed the German on both cheeks and tagged him for a key role. In the future East-West struggle for Germany, the Russians will pit Ulbricht against Konr-ad Adenauer, re-elected chancellor of West Germany. As the Russians'purr over Ulbricht, what are the East Germans saying?
