US Expansion In Population Under Study By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK (AP) - Next to guessing what the stock market is going to do perhaps one of the chanciest business gambits is charting a course to fit expected population changes. Yet much of the planning for the rest of this decade is based on just this. Grow the population doubtless will. But that it will grow as fast as it has been may be far less 69' SHOPPERS SPECIAL A Complete Luncheon In Itself Menu Changes Daily —OPEN SUNDAYS- TWIN CHEFS RESTAURANT 108 E. Main St. of a sure thing than the statisticians are saying. Still, much of the construction and consumer goods industries are, doing their planning with ex* pected marriage rates and birth rates in mind. Future school needs, jobs, incomes, spending, highways—all will be affected a decade or so hence by the marriage and birth rates of the 1960s. These rates in the 1940s and 1950s have posed many of today's problems. During the war, and even more in the years right after it, the birth rate went up sharply. Young people wanted to marry earlier and to have larger families than had their parents in the 1920s, and especially in the depressed 1930s. This wave of children crowded the schools, and now is starting to overflow the job markets. Early marriages and big families boomed the home building industry—and the food industry—and made the two-car families commonplaces. The problems from this population explosion will continue and increase—the need for more jobs and more homes and more consumer goods and more parking places. But many statisticians have charted far into the future on the belief that the curve will continue at the same rate—that early marriages and big families will be in fashion indefinitely. Perhaps. But a slow down in the marriage rate (percentage of eligibles) has been noted and, more significant perhaps, a trend toward smaller families.

The total of births in the United States undoubtedly will increase, too. But the thing that the business and government planners can't be as sure of as many of them seem to be today is the rale per thousand. It is that marriage rate, that birth rate, that will determine how many more thousands of children there will be to educate, families to feed, to house, to clothe, ultimately to find jobs for.

Victory- (Continued from page 4) lively mild disease, but in the 19th century, it again became a major cause of death among chil dren. Measles, to the present day continues to have the highest at tack rate of any infectious disease. Yet, the death rate has gone down appreciably in the United States, Canada and some nations of Europe. In England and Wales at the turn of the century, for example, the measles mortality rate was 318 persons foi* every million peo pie. Today, although the frequency of measles is much higher, the mortality rate is only two persons for each million of popula tion. In some underdeveloped African countries, however, measles ac counts for as much as 25 per cent of the infant mortality rate. Although measles was recognized as a dangerous infectious disease more than 1,000 years ago— and the idea for inoculation against the disease was spawned some 200 years ago — it was not until 1954 that the first scientific breakthrough was made in man's effort to control rubeola. At that time, Nobc! Prize winner Dr. John F. Endcrs and his associates at Harvard Medical School succeeded in isolating the measles virus in tissue cultures of human and monkey kidney cells This milestone provided the scientific basis for the development method of immunization against measles, a feat that was accomplished this year with the introduction of measles vaccine.
