We Applaud people through the interest they take in politics, healthy every day labor, industry and economic policies. WHO HAS TO HUSTLE? According to rome American spokesmen, we're going to have to hustle mighty hard if we're to prevent the Soviet economy from overtaking and passing ours. And, according to some Kremlin spokesmen, the Soviets are going to do just that in the next ten or fifteen or twenty years or some otlur such period of time. What can be said to that, on the basis of the known facts, is that the hustle will have to be principally provided by the Soviets—and to a miraculous degree. For instance, the American Petroleum Insti­ tute points out that to make our living standards approximate of those of the Soviet Union, we'd have to get rid of four out of five of our homes, nine out of ten telephones, fourteen out of fifteen miles of paved roads, and nineteen out of twenty cars and trucks. We're that far ahead. This is no argument for complacency — or for underestimating Soviet achievements in science, industry or sense to minimize our own achievements—or to ignore the fact that the American system has done more for more people than any other economic svstc*n known to man.
