TUESDAY, OCTOBER S, 1950. BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)'COURIER NEWS PAGE FIVE Tfc« Motion Today: A Problem, 50 Million a Year— Ford Foundation Seeks Progress In Broad Field of Human Welfare By MAX HALL < (For Jinwi Mario w) WASHINGTON, Oct. 3. (/P)— Sup- pest you had a. million dollars a week to ap«nd on your fellow man, How would you spend it? This may sound easy but It's not. Naturally you would want to put the money where it would do the most good for human welfare. You plight not want to hand It over to Htar old alma mater or your favor- He charity. So you would study the problems that mankind Is staggering under. You would decide which problems are the most urgent Then you would decide which of those urgent problems your money could help solve, and how. You must take Into consideration the other money— governmental and private — that Is belns spent those problems, and decide where your dollars are heeded the most. This was the task that confronted ' the trustees of the Ford Foundation two years ago. Ford Is Richest The Ford Foundation, now about to begin full-scale activities. Is the richest private philanthropic .institution In the world.. It was created by the Ford automobile family, The foundation owns Ford Motor Company stock and other assets valued at 238 million dollars. Men familiar with Ford operation* say that this stock would be worth much more. If it were ever put on the market. They estimate that the foundation's assets should yield income ot at least SO milTon dollars a year, to be used for human welfare, The trustees, headed by Henry Ford II. appointed B committee of educators who made a lengthy study, during which they interviewed more than 1,000 leading citl- , «ns. ^ They said they would leave to .^others the continued exploration of the physical sciences, medicine, and pubHc health, because the critical problems of humanity are social rather than phvsical in character. "Human Relations Field" The Ford Foundation will concentrate on human relations — "to quire more knowledge of man and of the ways In which men can learn to live together In peace in a complex, conflicting, and ever-changing world." The foundation wilt support activities that will (1) contribute to world peace, , (1) promote freedom -and democracy, (3) strengthen edn- ^eafcicm, (4) alvance economic weH- " being, and (5) Increase scientific I knowledge of human behavior. The trustees granted 3 million dollars to various institutions for the last-named purpose. That's • '-Ismail compared "with grunts that ^ r «re coming, TOT some years, foundations have '' been giving lea* money toward research in. the physical sciences and ? more toward- social researeft.-r arid the Ford announcement T: jrives'~n k great push to that change : of direc- " September Brought First Autumn Chill Many 'alythevllle residents again donned the blanket and comfort, (old Southern, If you choose), last month is the first chills of autumn weather sent the thermometer sliding down to a minimum low of 40 degrees 'Sept. 21.

CAP) — | The race that may decide the fastest terrapin In Arkansas will be reeled off here Wednesday. Since there is no championship race set up for Arkansas, the winner ol the annual American Legion Terrapin Derby here usually it considered the title bearer. About 750 terrapins are entered In the arce, which highlights a full day's program of activity, This year's race Is the 15th. To be staged by Lepanto/Legion Poftt to raise funds lor building, equipping and maintaining a. Legion Hut. The quarters, a handsome brick building, now i* valued at about 140.000. . The derby and the Legion quarters both are vastly improved since the'Jfirst sponsors let loose a tub of terrapins in the center oi a large ring.and waited for the winner to cross the tine. Participation In the derby Is open to anyone with a |2 entry fee and a spurt of sporting blood. Here's the way the race works: A sponsor puts up two bucks and selects a terrapin and an appropriate name,—some of them are fan- tajtlc. The terrapins, identified by metal tags, then are placed in the large ring and the race is on. The first entry to cross the line—it may take five minutes or an hour depending on the mood of the racer— Ls the winner. To wear the crown, however, a terrapin must win three preliminary races. Included on Wednesday's program will be a gala parade, a bicycle race, the Little River County Cotton Picking Contest, a dance and the annual ball. stree Radio$ Help School* TORONTO r M mlnut* every day during the school term Existence of Soviet /s Doubted WHITE SULPHUR SPRING6, W.Va..
