MONDAT, TUNE 23, 1958 (ARK.) counrER NEWS PAGE SEVEN After 18 Months Study, Commission Finds US Can't Supply Own Needs Ozarks Okays Ford Plan By STEIlI/INfx F. GREEN* fr WASHINGTON (AIM—A presidential hoard today recommended that Die United States scrap laws which prevent other nations from selling America the raw materials she needs for war and peace. The United States should make a cellar-to-attic search —at home and abroad—for sources of materials, said a formal report by the President's Materials Policy Commission.

Among other things, H proposed that the states andprivate firms be offered financial incentives to seek out doubled total output:. new sources of materials and to • "—"' '"- 1 - "' : " conserve available natural sources. The report mentioned such in- Jcentives as special tax benefits to prospectors in. this country and abroad.

Demand for fluorspar, used principally in steel making, will increase by 300 per cent, aluminum by 400 per cent, magnesium by 1,800 to 2,000 per ceni. Timber—depict eci forests will create a "serious situation," though consumption may rise only 10 per cent — perhaps the least of all materials. Energy — Elecftric power must rise 250 per cent to sustnin a demand for liquid fuels .j for natural gas will triple. Coal I demand will climb fill per cent and the commission predicted: "All signs point to a re-emergence of coal in stronger and stronger demand, as supplies, petroleum and natural gas evutibly begin to decline and grow more costly." The inadequacy of domestic output, now running 10 per cent behind total demand for materials, was pictured as a defense problem.
