Monday Evening, Julyl, 1957. LOGANSPORT PUBLIC LIBRARY President Wants Foreign Aid Program Put on Loan Basis EDITOR'S NOTE: A big change hai been proposed in U.S. methods of helping friendly underdeveloped nations. The idea has won enthusiastic approval of a bipartisan majority of the Senate. The House Foreign Affairs Committee, however, voted to limit the program to one year instead of three as President Eisenhower proposed. The following dispatch tells how the new plan would work. By JOHN B. HOLLISTER Director, international Cooperation Administration ' WASHINGTON (UP)—President Eisenhower's proposal to shift the emphasis of U.S. economic development assistance to friendly foreign nations to loans instead of gifts should be welcomed by every American taxpayer. In brief, the President has asked Congress to appropriate 500 million dollars out of this year's mutual seucrity program to establish a development loan fund. To operate effectively, this fund mast have adequate money and adequate planning time. Therefore, the President has also asked Congress to authorize the government to borrow from the treasury up to 750 million dollars in each of the two following years to finance the fund in those years. This three- year total of up to two billion dollars represents less than a half of 1 per cent of our own yearly gross national product, which is running at the rate of 420 billion dollars. If this fund fulfills its purpose of speeding economic development among almost a billion people, the dividends to the United Slates will far exceed the investment. These proposals of the President's are now before Congress. The Senate has already authorized these requests in full. Change In Emphasi« The new proposals signify, a fundamental change in emphasis from the practice of past years and _would accomplish the following important improvements: —The American taxpayer would know how much money was going toward helping the economic development- of friendly nations, and would know that all of it was on a loan basis. —Foreign nations will know that Ihe United States has certain limited funds (two billion dollars over three years) available for loans for really worthwhile- projects that will contribute significantly ' to building economic strength. —All parties will know this money is available until used — and not, as in the past, for a limited number of months. This, I am convinced, is the sound, business-like way for free nations to work together. Thp very creation of the fund will inspire borrowing nations with a greater sense of zeal and responsibility. Loans, rathor than gifts, will encourage self-reliance, and the long term availability of the fund will encourage thoughtful long - term planning rather than frantic emergency action. Purpose Of Fnnd About a billion people — almost one-third of the world's population —live in the underdeveloped areas, particularly in the Middle Bast, Africa, and Asia. The average income is about 100 dollars a year, in contrast to about 2,500 dollars in the U.S. Malnutrition, poverty, sickness take such a toll that their life expectancy is about 30 years, in contrast to 70 in the United States. Nineteen of these nations have achieved political independence since World War II, They arc determined to achieve economic growth and independence too. However, they do not have adequate capital and foreign ex- chatige to begin essential development in roads, dams, railroads, utilities — the very sinews of economic growth. They must turn to the outside for help. Notwithstanding the blandishments of the Communist bloc, most of these new countries turn to us, and other industrialized nations of the free world, for this help. The purpose of the fund is to provide the most economical and effective way for the United States to assist in these nations' own efforts to progress. Read the Classified Ads Laboratory Seeks Tire Thump Cause BUFFALO, N. Y.—Scientists at Cornell Aeronautical Laboratory are seeking to find the cause of tire thump. This has bothered the lire in. dustry for years. Now that modern automobiles are quieter and have better suspension systems, tire thump has become more noticeable than before. William F. Milliken, head of the vehicle dynamics department at the laboratory who is helping with the project, emphasized that tire thump is' not linked with road bumps or tire imperfections, but may be associated with vibrations at different frequencies. Experi ments also have shown that a given tire may thump more on one auto than on another. CAL hopes to get to the' bottom of the mystery—first by fitting out a new car with numerous instruments to measure the sound and vibrations in the wheels, tires and the car body. Tire manufacturers will be pleased if CAL can come up with the answer. Milliken said most firms get a lot of thumping tires returned for exchange.

But you arc also looking at tangible proof of the bountiful land that is America 1 Certainly, for instance, no one could behold a Cadillac without gaining new respect for our freedom to create and to produce. For where but from America could there came n molor car so rare in beauty or so marvelous in .quality and luxury? ' Surely, no one could take the wheel of a Cadillac wiUiout appreciating our nation's industrial skill nnd progress. For where but from America could there come a motor cur so fine in performance? And most assuredly, no one could hear the practical facts about Cadillac without marveling nt our nation's well-being. For where but in America could so prized n. personal possession l>c brought within the economic range of so many? We think it appropriate, therefore, to pay tribute to these precious American virtues—and to express our own gratitude at having been privileged to put them to such extraordinary use. And we should also like to take this opportunity of personally inviting all America to sec and inspect its "ambassador at large". You will find that the 1957 Cadillac, with its luxurious Flcetwood coachcrafting, is the finest "Standard of the World" ever created. And you will also find that this is the perfect moment, from the standpoint of both delivery and economy, to make the move to Cadillac.
