PAGE SIX BLYTHEVTU,E (ARK.) UN Urges World Economic Review LAKE SUCCESS. Feb. 17. (/T)— United Nations economists arc urging a'review of all current economic programs in the light of persistent world trade maladjustments, i Their suggestion Is in a survey of economic changes hi 1919 prepared for the 18-natlon economic and social council. The report p said no remedy Is yet In sight for the chronic unbalance of trade which the U.N. experts feel'Is the World's No. 1 economic headache at the moment. 'The survey did not specify which economic programs should be reevaluated, but it was assumed one of them was the European Recovery Program under which the United States has poured billions of dollars Into Western Europe. IJ.S. Imports Drop The .report pointed to Ihc drop In V. 'S. : .Imports from Western Europe as one of Ihe factors Hint aggravated-the trade problem'(hiring I949i it. also indicated the growing movement to develop (he backward countries threatened to complicate the picture still further. The Vfi. experts expressed the belief that the trade program' wa a triangular matter Involving th United Slates, Western Europe an the underdeveloped countries. They made no concrete recom mcndalions, but foresaw the possi bility thiit the United States mlgli have to continue financial aid In definitely to Western Kurojie or t the underdeveloped areas. The alternative, they said, woul be for tlie United states to rcduc its exports. Increase Its imports, o both. They added, however, -Ilia Mils would reverse, what appeared I be an inherent tendency in th United States. The present level of U. S. export is made possible, the report said because a substantial part of then are being paid for by dollars sup plied to Western Europe under the KKP. in the second quarter ol 1BIO. for example, about one-half of the U. S. exports were fmancec by KRP money. Itnssia Discounted The U.N. experts apparently are dlscinmlinc the possibility of bringing Russia into any world trade adjustment, plan.

What, good (hen would be the allied merchant marines?"

M'j-How a hydrogen bomb's radioactivity can live in the air long after the explosion was explained here today by a physicist'.who has worked-at the Oak Ridge, rrenn.. atomic energy plants. Although this peril is great, so that some scientists have predicted it will be worse than the bomb explosion, the reasons are not secret. Physicists who know have not been talking. • ; Today's explanation comes from Paul [>. Elliott, assistant professor of physics at Texas Technological College. Lubbock, Tex. He gave it in answer to a scries of questions. He said Hie terrific heat and pressure of the hydrogen bomb explosion, he believes, will change the containing envelope of the bomb, that is, whatever it is enclosed in, into a mass of radioactive vapor. "Not only," he sain, "would the explosion result In liberation of Inconceivable power and heat, but all ;he remaining nncombincd, atoms would become radioatcive and emit vast amounts of high speed protons, iculrons, alpha particles and the leadly gamma rays, (x-rays). "These particles and rays would render all substances' within their range radioactive—water, air, soil, etc;—which, in turn, would become extremely dangerous as new sources of deadly emanations, just as any natcrial in an atomic pile becomes "adioactive. "Some substances would soon lose heir radioactivity, but others would be radioactive for many •cars." . ; . . This week, In New York, Dr. Linus 'auling, one of the world's best- uiown chemists, said the hydrogen bomb radioactivity would be so great hat no person, animal or plant any- vhere on earth would be safe for 'ears. The radioactivity would permeate the er.tirc atmosphere. And f people and other living things escaped serious radioactive injury hey still would be subject to chan- TCS in heredity. It even has been said that ag- ircssors will not use the weapon or fear of the radioactivity get- ing back into their own countries. Elliott said he believes a wori:- ible plan of control of the bomb 'becomes the condition of survival of civilization." Margaret Denies Met Career Plans 'MIAMI, ria.
