Generally they were things that the people of this country eould have learned without the territie .expense in lives and money, if they hiid just Uikeu the trouble ff> tackle some of the war problems in peace time. , • One of the things tho people of I his country discovered was that the United States was far more nearly self- sufficient. |)i;(u hwl been commonly believed. When trade routes were c\it on" in 1!)1<1 and warring nations couldn't iill'ord lo export materials they needed badly at home, the brows of industry wero "creased with worry lines, Many needed inateriid.s ami the benefit from many valuable manufacturing secrets were rank"}' becoming unavailable!, and the United Stales looked .sadly toward the dny when certain industries, par- liculwly cliemieal.s, \votild hftve to close and the public would haye to do wi(h- otil commodilie.s lo which they had become accustomed. Then the laboratories got busy. They learned how to imike optical equipment ;<nd they produced dyes which stid- , dcnly become unobtainable. New choin- ical formulae for manufacturing processes were evolved and .industry as a whole began gradmi||y lo .understand that American genius was ' urjual lo the new problems. ;•:... The problems we looliei!.:at with Ijor'f ror in )9'M \vc approach today 'with calm sell-assurance. Tho shock of llie first World War- was not ( |uickly forgotten, ami scientists have been ex- ncrimenting constantly since then in an effort to find new substitutes for -standard processes. Tt was unco believed wo cotdd obtain rubber only from distant tropical places.' Stoppage of this supply would have been serious enough to sprout gray hairs on the heads of all juj to- mobile executives and industrialists who need rubber for their products. But today, concern over this situation is only slight. Laboratories have produced synthetic rubber. It is not yet generally in use, and it probably has not been fully developed; but threat of a shortage of the wtura! product would hasten research in this Ijr.ld. (Minerals • which l|ij.s country now imports are probably lying imbedded in the rocks of America or Alaska, geologists believe. If cerlaj,, ores raill)ot , )e found, scientists will probably lin( | a way to gel along ..without them. Self-sufficicircy- 'is not a healthful of affairs fop the UuUed'Stales. JSeonomic intercourse among the nations of the world is necessary, njid tho United Slates should share jn this commerce. Rut it is comforting to know that this country i s not helplessly dependent on other nations to simply materials in times of emergency. Ciiric No shoestring industry is the Unit, cd States government. The management of federal affairs has become one of the largest single enterprises in the nation. Its roster of employes is larger now than it was during tho emergency dnys of the first, World War, Uncle Sum today hits a staff of fltf!),- K7(> men and women on his payroll, Ih September, this army collected ?HI,- G2!),881 in salary. During (lie World Wm 1 , the highest/ number of employes ill the federal service at one time was 1)17,000. Ik-fore thai, if had been around 500,000, JUK) after the war it dropped back to that average—until Now Deal centralization got going. One out of every 'JO workers in I ho l.'niled Stales is now drawing a go\v eminent check, participating in all Iho benefits of employment, .security.
