Listening to utterances from leaders on both «id«g, you would almost inevitably •tmelud* that the issues between them «TB deep «nd basic. To a very substan- tia! degree they are, but there are also tta»*s when a man from Mars, viewing th« eold war struggle with lull objec- tirity, eould not. help but feel that the two great adversaries were grappling on a superficial level—dealing with symptoms rather than causes. A review of the world's population statistics would be likely to put a celestial visitor in such a mood. Several European nations are groaning under the iteadily greater weight of increased population. Asiatic countries, particularly India, continue to add to their teeming millions. Even the United States looks ahead to a sharply higher human total m the next two or three decades. If statesmen were complete realists, the cold war would end tomorrow and in its place would begin a gigantic joint effort of East and West to solve this problem of over-population. For th« swelling statistics are a matter of grave import. They are a cause, not a symptom. They bring in their train a thousand other difficulties. A few years ago a controversial debate arose in Ihe United States over this issue. William Vogt of the Pan- American Union in Washington dramatized the problem in a book called "The Road to Survival," ]t painted a gloomy picture of rising populations set against dwindling food supplies and other resources. Guardians of the great dream of * relentless progress to higher economic levels were stung into bitter repiy, The men of Vogt's view were denounced as crazy alarmists who failed to understand the world's potentialities. The argument still rages. It may fairly be said that it is not settled. It may also be said that the economic optimists, for all the vigor of their convictions, have not yet answered satisfactorily some of the critical questions involved. They contend, for instance, that important scientific advances will enable man to replenish exhausted soils and thus actually increase his food potential. But they seldom bother to point out that many of these advances, if not all, are vastly more expensive to introduce and develop than was the simple task of drawing nourishment from originally rich top Boils. Again and again, this cost problem tends to be ignored by the antj-gloom economic thinkers, H 1 .: id ally, tfcey isuilly ATM- MM feet ttwt whert fceehmca! adBtM. few often the u* Mi trwnMwrf Mo higher atexlard* far tti« «*wtinf popaktion.

The Feiplng radio wu tnnounclng that the Redj would not accept even the abject terms for peace in Korea presented by the United Nations Saturday, If the Reds' radio report is Irustsvorthy, Behave succeeded only In making ourselves ridiculous at Panmunjom. The cease-fire talks Tere begun on the theory that the aggressive and devoted service of (he Eighth Army had put tht Chinese In A position where peace would be welcome. The basis . for' the theory was doubtless •ound.

Mr. DISalle laid that price controls wer» working out pretty well. As one bit of evidence, he pointed to the fact that shoes were selling at about'» dollar a pair under ceiling prices. Since the majority of prices art below ceilings, OPS has now devoted lt« main efforts to rertslng the ceilings downward to current market price levels. Exactly how price ceilings caused prices to fall below the ceilings is not clear, but doubtless, OPS has the answer. If ceilings are revised downward to nbout current, market levels, prices should continue downward until they are below these levels, if price controls cause falling prices. It L< interesting to follow this llne'of reasoning, Continued far enough, we would have free goods. —U. 8. CHAMBER Or COMMERCE SO THEY SAY He Certainly Can't Get Lasl~-Or Con He? ^^__^ . s Pet*r Ecfeon's Washington Column-— Marshall Plan's Work Is Given To the Mutual Security Agency WASHINGTON <NEA) — The three-and-a-half-year-old Marshall Plan passed out of th« picture "Dec. 31. and MSA—the new Mutual Security Agency under Director W, Averell Harriman took over Jan. 1. To say that the Marshall Plan Job has been finished is an over - simplification. Marshall goal was If the Plan Euro- lars-plui set up the European Payments Union—a clearing house to facilitate trade between European countries. , Europe Most Carry On The fact Is that even 13 billion dollars wouldn't begin bo raise ths living standard for Europe's factory workers and peasant*. That la a job which European countries will have to do for themselves by ear- tying on the work the Marshall Plan began. Greatest credits claimed for the Marshall Plan are in the nature ol intaneivles. Communism has been checked in Western Europe. A start has been marie towards breaking down narrow nationlism. Through such things as the European Payments Union and the Schuman plan for integrated coal and steel production, economic unification of Europe has been begun. In the North Atlantic Pact, rxx litical unification and mutual defense, with a start towards a European army, have been greatly advanced. It Is the function of Averell Harriman In his new role as Director of Mutual Security to further all such objectives. His Job 'Will be (hat of a coordinator of all U. 5. foreign aid programs. He will have a staff of from 25 to 50 top planners and auditors under him in the Executive Office of the President. William J- p«an "recovery," tt bas not been reached.

Gome people, she says, feel that not sc-rious. This letter raises an Important question because far too many people tend to Ignore the appearance of blood in the urine, especially since 11 Is likely (o be Intermittent rather than continuous. Actually, this should never be Ignored, and even the matter of a month or two may mean the difference between life and death. This symptom Is 'not caused by a "strain" or a "colci." but some more serious condition is almost always present. It means (hat there is bleeding somewhere along the urinary passageways.
