Right Spirit Is Shown In Manila Blood Drive The 350 pints of blood collected by the Red Crow bloodmcbUe at Manila this we«k bespeaks a magrnlflclent spirit on the part of those people who live in the Manila-LeacHviHe ares. This impressive total from » rather sparsely populated area also reflects effort on the parts of committee lioads and workers who evidently did a splendid job in organizing their blood-gathering program. To them, our congratulations. Sadly enough, America is losing this important phase of the not-so cold war. There simply aren't enough people who are willing to give blood as often as they could; We don't know how Russia has managed to stockpile blood when this nation can't even meet a pitifully small requirement for Korea, but we have our ideas. But the success of the Manila-Leachville effort is indicative of the type of Do-Something Americanism on which the fate of this nation will eventually rest . . . cold war, hot war or any part thereof. countries are feeling a severe economic pinch, Austria, for instance, which before the war sold 40 per cent of all its exports to Eastern Europe, now sells only from IS to 20 per cent. A further drop would endanger the country's economy. Ordinarily, when one big market dries up, a country will look for alternate markets. Right now, the countries of Western Europe are looking at the United States, but they don't exactly like what they SCO' The feeling of a number of these countries is voiced by Gicard d'Estaing, chairman of the French National Committee of the International Chamber of Commerce: ". . . (The United Stales) has set up barriers within the free world which arc incompatible with the will to expand trade. The difficulty of obtaining supplies of certain relatively rare raw materials iu Western ICtirope is due much less to the stoppage of F.aM-\Vcst trade Hum In (he p;iivi<lnxicnl fact that the dollar zone does not wish to liny from F.ui'ope the articles which would give Europe the means of payment for raw materials from the dollar zone," Part of the difficulty here is that the great majority of our exports are sitn- iliir to what Western Europe has to sell — namely, manufactured goods. Another factor is our effort to protect our own industries through import levies on foreign goods. The United Slates Council of the International Chamber of Commerce has recently completed nn analysis of the present trade situation- It criticizes the U. S. government as having "failed to provide a solution to this vexing problem of trade between the free nations and the countries behind the Iron Curtain." And it urges that "the basic assumptions on which current United States policies on East- West trade are based need to be re-examined and revised." One important item to be considered here is the possibility of opening up countries like North Africa to a trade which might compensate Western Europe for loss of her Eastern European markets. It already has been suggested by several European leaders. And it should fit in well with our own Point Four program- Untried Sources Can Help Regain Lost Eastern Trade , Recent events give us another quick peek at international trade, that mysterious, complicated and little understood power source that helps make the world go round. In recent actions in which he refused lo raise import levies on certain foreign goods. President Truman let it be known that world trade is a two- way street. If we want to export, which we certainly do, we've got to import. In other words, if we want other countries to buy our poods, we've got to buy theirs. Otherwise they won't have the money lo pay us for what we sell them. The outgoing President seems to make sense there. However, another and more complicated factor has arisen in our trade relations since the end of World War II- It affects directly our trade with Europe and it magnifies greatly the good or bad effects of that trade. The new and disrupting factor is the drastic reduction of the normal flow of trade between Western Europe and the Iron Curtain countries. Generally speaking, that trade has consisted of raw materials being sold by the East to the West, and manufactured products sold to the East by the West. As a result of the East-West trade restrictions, many Western European Views of Others America Crosses A Divide The United Slates has crossed the great divide as to natural resources and Is now a raw- materials-Geliclt instead of a raw-materials-surplus nation. This is the cnix of the warning contained In the report of the President's Materials Policy Commission headed by William S. Paley, chairman of the bosird of the Columbia Broadcasting System. The warning is sharp. But Lhe commission sees nn Inevitable disaster ahead. By taking thought and enlightened action Americans can adapt to the new situation. Free enterprise Is without peer In turning raw materials to useful purposes. That Is one of several ronsons why the.

With 40 pages of military nntt diplomatic secret stuff struck out for reasons national security, 1949 PTC passed a special resolution authorizing Its economics staff to prepare a report on the undesirable characteristics of monopolistic practices in the world oil industry. Top-Secret Angle Created Interest The study took over two years. A. tot of material was subpcnaed from oil industry files. Because the report delat with the Middle East, which was an explosive political area, State Department Insisted that the report be kept secret. That is one of the things that slirred up much of the interest. Aside from the 40 pages which mtght-hnve been embarrassing to certain Middle East governments in letting their politicians Tt some of the things that went inside their own countries, there is snfd to be little !n the FTC re port that has not been widely known insfciu government and thi oil industry. One oilier factor that stirred up public interest In the FTC oil re port was pressure from Sen Thomas C.
