Dangers of Material Deficit Merit Study by Congress A «bmmisBion named by the President to study American and world raw materials problems predicts thnt by 1975 we will be importing about one- fifth of all our materials requirement". That is only one striking statement in a long list set forth by the commission in a report which include* 70 ape«if!« recommendations for the nation'i Industrial future. What this carefully prepare ddocument tells us is this: 1—The United States is now a raw- matertals-defkit nation and will be- eoms mow so a« our population rises ' and Industry expands. We must import to Hve. 3—Shortages of many items already are developing. While generally thes« ar« not yet grave deficiencies, they mww we are having to probe deeper Into rock and use more man-hours of labor to get the raw stuff out. T h u * mounting coat is more of a problem now than actual depletion. 3—If we are not to endanger our security or our living standards, we shall have to attend seriously to measures that will improve our raw material position both domestically and with friendly nations which help supply us. Naturally, a number of things could upset the most expertly projected forecast of industrial needs. One—war—the commission takes full cognizance of. War, with its colossal demands for materials, alters the outlook swiftly and radically. A second hazard is technological change. Who, in 1925, could have foreseen the huge growth of the chemical industry by 1050, with emphasis on oil by-products, synthetic fabrics, and plastics? Who could have guessed about atomic energy ? Yet these things and many another technical advance have .vastly re-shaped the U.S. materials situation in this age. In this development lies one of our greatest hopes for security and well- being. The commission, in its recommendations, wisely stresses that we must try to gel more out of the things we have, and find substitutes at home for some of the things that are running short. But this cannot he the whole answer, even assuming all the best. American, demands simply are too great. Since World War 1, for instance, the amount of most metals and fuels used in this country exceeds the volume used in the entire world before 1D14. We have also got to face the fact realistically that we need friends abroad, and not just to provide armies, or bases, or other defenses. \Ve need them to fuel and supply our industrial machine, The statesman who do«« »ot *n4er*U<i<l Uil« ervel truth to ttviitg <• Mi* 19th oautury.

We had better nM be idl«. : inlond Unchallenged According to a recent news item, Finland has sent the United Stateg $142,127.18 in payment of a debt for American aid after World War I. In doing so, Finland maintained its record of being I he only country never to default on payment of this debt. We're certain Finland has no worries about maintaining this unique record. Most of the countries which defaulted on this debt were in later years well able to pay. None except Finland saw fit to make a determined effort to retire this indebtedness. Since World War II, foreign aid has not even been contemplated as a debt. We give and they take, sometimes with indiscernible gratitude. Finland's record is safe. There are no challengers.

Its purpose is to make the members of Congress more responsive to what is believed to be the will of a majority of the people. At present. It Is believed that too many senators and representatives are more responsive to the will of the party bosses and their Pet«r Eiliwi own convictions. The Idea for changing this situa- ion has probably made more head- vay in the Democratic than in the Republican Pnrty. But the rise of lie insurgent Republican forces in southern states from Florida to Texas shows that the idea is very much allva and kicking in Ihe 3OP. The aim of the southern Republican revolters—largely pro-Eisen- liower forces-—was to take con- rol of tile party machinery away from the Old Guard regulars. For years this faction in control has been operated more like a private club than a party of the people. Tho Old Guard machine gained and maintained more power by having Ihe Republican Parly's national ticket defeated than It stood to gain in victory. This was the condition that led to the rise of pro-Eisenhower forces in the southern state conventions. Revealed in Democrats' Flatfnrm In the Democratic convention. :he move for more' democracy in shaping party policy was revealed In the drive to write Into the plat- fo'rm a plank favoring a change In Senate rules. The change would limit Senate filibusters by a simple majority vole, instead of the two-thirds majority now required. Southern Democratic senators opposed this change. Their argument was that the Senate was a self-governing body. No one on the outside should lell the Senate how to behave. By this argument, the senators indicated that they put themselves above the will of the party and the win of a majority of th« people. Two years apro, the Republicans went through the same kind of a snake dance. It ^rew out of GOP National Committee Chairman Guy George Gabrielson's proposal for a mid-term declaration of party policy. Sen. Robert A. Taft of Ohio at first resisted this move. His argument wns that between national conventions, the party policy was determined by the Republican members of tho Housa and Sen ate. Both the Republican and Democratic senators' objections to outside interference were equivalent to saying that congressmen were above party dictation and dls cipline and the will of the people. Promote Mid-Term Conventions Corlnne Calvet insists she'll go through with her 51 million slander suit against Ksa Zsa Gabor when she completes her role in "Powder River" nt Fox. The suit was set for filing, then Corinne called her attorney anri asked him to delay the action "because 1 don't want to be emotionally upsei when I'm working."

These pictures are wonderful experience and I'm doing Ihe best I can. I'm no comedian, I don't sing and I don't dance- but now I'm doing all three." MGM's changing the title ol Lana Turner's "Tribute to a Bad Man." They think the public will get the idea that it's a western. The "bad man" IB a movie producer. that the American Folitical Science Association has been promot- ng the idea of mid-term national conventions. The purpose of these conventions would be to restate party policy and party objectives in the light of changing conditions. At present. tne party platforms adopted'by' the presidential nom- .nating conventions remain the Jarty doctrine for four years. That Is considered too long a time. It does not permit a change of foreign policy objectives created t>y some mid-term development like th« outbreak ol war in Korea. A restatement of party policy on the eve of the midterm congressional elections would give the voters a clearer Idea of the lasues at stake, according to the political scientists' theory. President Truman has given his endorsement to the mid-term convention plan. Por the Republicans, Rep. Jacob Javits of New York has been promoting it. Minnesota and Wisconsin Democratic atate conventions endorsed it this year. But the effort to put a plank In the Democratic platform, favoring the calling of such a convention in 1854, failed to carry. The id«a Is not dead, however, and It ia bound to grow. It has certain obvious objections, in addition to inconvenience and cost. The principal objection is that In subjecting members of Congress to more strict party control and discipline it would kill Independence of thought and contribute to a more totalitarian form Terry Moore's up for the lead opposite Fredrlo March in "Man on the Tight Rope," which Ella Kazan will film In Europe. . .

When there are too few red blood cells or not enough hemoglobin, the condition is called "anemia," For example, If a person loses more blood than the system cnn replace, anemia develops. If the blood loss occurs suddenly the difficulty can be emcdied promptly by stopping the lemorrbage and giving a blood ransfuMon. i If the tos.s is slow, U is necessary to find where the bleeding comes from and to stop It If possible.
