(NEA> — The peoples of all nations nnd their political leaders, no mailer how they have achieved tlipir positions of authority, power nnd resonsibil- Ity. face lluee major problems today; 1. How lo avoid war and help maintain world peace ami al the Mine time protect the territories of (heir nations and (heir letflfmafe International Interests. I.

The peoples of the free world face k fourth problem—how to achieve the first three without losing the freedoms on which their nations have been built. The peoples of the world want peace, not war. The history of the world through the centuries Js that dictators, not the people, make the Wars, If our nations In the effort to meet aggression develop into military and political dictatorships. they will Inevitably become involved In a war us dictator-dominated nn- ttona always have in the past. Th« western world lias demonstrated beyond a question of a doilM that the greatest productivity and htgnMt Atandard of living can only be achieved by atlmulatlnr the Jiilt- fattre of the millions In a frwt ,so- etety. Likewise, to maintain jHilltl- e*l fttabilllr In such free nations, It te nee*i*ary to maintain and 1m- PTOT* tb« atandard of living of the people, Frr« societies based on the recog- nifton of the essential dignity and Inherent importance of the individual naturally hnve the greatest consideration for the nged, sick and deatUute. In such societies it la not a queetton of should they be taken car* of, but how beat to do It. A mhrimiun military wrtahlUh- •MM, Including the minimum de- fflMA production neeesMrj to pro- *e#t » nation, I* an economic ban. dteap thai aerlcm*)? reduces ihe vtaadard of min? of the-people.

Socialistic schemes nre no solution for tlwisc problems since by their very nature they tend to eliminate incentives, destroy persnnnl initiative, weaken responsibility and curtail production. At the present time It Is exceedingly important to increase productivity to tile maximum in the free world. All of us must he willing to make a greater et/ort, and we must organise our work so that we accomplish more with each hour of work. Our nations must have military programs sufficient to protect themselves against aggression. With mn Increased birth rate Kncl an increased life expectancy, the productive portion of the population Is reduced, throKlmr an added load on each of the producers. Since to achieve political stability In our countries these producers must have a hope for Increasing their standard of living us n reward for their greater effort, there Is a triple necessity for Increased productivity. Beginning In th« 15lh and through the 10th Century, the nations of Europe In varying degree depended on a policy of colonialism to support ttie people In the home countries. This system of colonlal- tsm WM designed to develop the resources of mote primitive or pagan countries by more civilized peonies. Frequently the »y»tem w»ji mnlii- talned by military power. Admittedly the system was designed to help the people of the mother country, but It yaa defended on tha ground that It.plffo raised the economic, social and religious slumlords of the native population. Tile colonies provided > market "OUR FIJTURK progress deprmfc "rNCKKASIN'G productivity." Wll- on the progress other countries s<m concludes, "Is the key to pros- make, Wilson declares. [Krlly and peace." for tile goods from the mother country In return for the food and| raw materials produced t>y the oo- ]oulcs. Colonialism wu.s always mote popular In the mother countries than In the colonies. The colonies insisted on growing up. I'erliaps the American Revolution and the founding of a new nillnn was the beginning of the end of colonialism. While colonialism was an accepted poTfr.v In Kurorie for many decades thereafter, and continued to . expand in some areas UirmijEhoul the 10th Century, the territories of Ihe Americas achieved their Independence during tbl.i period. The people of the United States have always had sympathy for other colonial peoples >vho were attempting to establish their Independence. As a result of tills and perhaps of our American Monroe Doctrine, the territories of the Americas achieved Independence during the same period that colonialism v,'as still advancing on some other continents. With the rising econnmlo status of colonial populations after World War I. colonialism n.i a p.ojicy declined rapidly. Following World War II colonialism as it was understood 100 years ago has largely disappeared. Our country now ha* mt m policy what mlffM bfl called colonialism In ;rer«TM. We are prpiolllnj our own people and our own reflourees hi benefit people In other countries. This Is certainly a new development in the history of the world. Even wild America's great Idealism and productivity, this policy cannot safely be counted on for long by any nation. Tills i« another reason why it la so Important for other countries In the western world to understand the basis of American productivity and rap- Idly Improve the pronctlvlty In their own lands. Americans have no desire to expand their area of influence in the pattern of the nld colonial empires nor to take advantage of the peoples of other lands to gain foi themselves by holding down the living standards of otlicr peoples On the contrary we Americans consider that our future progress to a large degree will depend upon the progress which other countries make at the same time. We believe that the greatest progress for each nation can be made only when all nations make progress in freely developing their own and thus the world's resources. We are sure that Increasing productivity is the. key to prosperitj and peace for the western world. ROCK, Dec. 1J. 'I/ft ~ Rep. William I.
