Wednesday Evening, November 24, 1954 West Working to Keep Backward Areas Free By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON UP) -- The United States and Russia may be reaching that point in developing their hydrogen bomb where neither will want to get into a war which i might mean the - annihilation of i both. But a military stalemate between the West and Russia doesn't mean either will stand still. Neither can afford to. The nndevel- oped areas of the earth are huge, The people living in them can be numbered in the hundreds of millions. Neither the West nor Russia can sit idle while the other tries to win over those millions of people with their vast land and resources. * * ft No doubt the Communists -- as th«y showed in Korea -- will try to take over by invasion where they thick the - West will let them get away with it. Where the Communists can't use direct military means, other weapons are handy. They can use internal subversion and propaganda -- based on promises, appeals to nationalism, and the wretched lives and living conditions of the people in the backward areas -- to win with intrigue and words what they can't take by arms. As an example: Suppose you were a Southeast Asian living in poverty, just as your fathers be- SMALL TALK AT THE THANKSGIVING TABLE by Syms Chest Honor Roll 100% Payroll Deduction J. J.

Your life expectancy, and the life expectancy of your children, was far less than that of an American or West Eu! ropean. You had no education. There ; was small chance of it for your j children. Freedom? Western men] prized it but they had held you as j a colonial until recently. Democracy? You had heard of it. But it had never been part of your heritage. Then suppose the Communists -men of your own country -- promised you and your children a better life, medical care, education, jobs with good pay, old age security. And the cost to you?

Hood and Sons McCaffrey's Jcnney Station That you were surrendering to a dictatorship which might leave you in the end more wretched economically than before perhaps would not mean much to you if you never had a fair chance to understand and enjoy freedom and practice democracy. What might seem the only important thing to you was the promise of a better life. To a wretched man a promise of less wretchedness would be better than no promise. The Communists have a fertile field to plow in the po-verty, ignorance and insecurity of the backward peoples. :]: ft if The Communists, dedicated to taking over the world, can't stand still. And the West can't stand still while they try to take over, country by country, until half the world is gone. How then can the West offset the promises of the Communists and win over the people of the backward areas, giving them a sense of direction, a new hope, a promise of a better life and, more than that, make the promise a reality? The Eisenhower administration is apparently working to keep the backward areas from the Communists with a program to make the people there stay with the West. ft # * Administration officials yesterday were reported considering a big new foreign economic program which may lead to the investment of billions of dollars in underdeveloped countries, notably in non- Communist Asia. Two days ago Foreign Aid Director Harold E. Stassen told a news conference the United States has started talks with European countries about their participation in an enlarged Asra development program. T h e administration p r o j e c t seems to be in its infancy. Before it becomes a reality there will be long debate. In the end the economic - social struggle for the world's backward places may prove more final and than a shooting war. RYE -- The problems facing the judge of a juvenile court and how they are met were portrayed for more than 100 members of the PTA here at a meeting Thursday j night in the Rye School. j Judge Oscar Neukom of the Portsmouth Municipal Court, as- siste'd by City Marshal Martin 0. Betz of Portsmouth and Frederick Champion of the New Hampshire Probation Department, re-enacted three cases .similar to those heard in the last few years. Henry Hogue, Portsmouth vocational and guidance director, and his wife portrayed the parents in the three cases, two of which dealt with juvenile delinquency and the other with Child neglect. Before taking part in the "trials" Judge Neukom told the assembly he had agreed to do so because of his concern with the growing problem of juvenile delinquency. "Delinquent children and neglected children are among two of the most serious cases 'heard in our courts today," he said. During the "court proceedings" afterward, all of the participants adhered as much as passible to the -procedure followed in juvenile court. * * point a committee to present facts and figures to the school board requesting it to include a sum of money necessary in the next school warrant to hire a permanent school Marshal Betz read th« warrant, ] band instructor, using fictitious names and places, * ft and told the "court" how the facts were gathered by his department. Champion in turn informed the court of the findings of his "follow- up" investigation made before the child and his parents were brought to court.
