Australia Making Rapid Progress, Rotary Told Tim*s H*r*ld, Carroll, I*, Tu«d*y, Oct. 13, 1959 With a vigorous and expanding economy, rising industrial production and a rapidly increasing population, Australia is making great strides today, Carroll Rotarian; were told Monday night. Alex Buchanan, a Rotary Foundation fellow studying dairy technology at Iowa State University, Ames, spoke to the club at the Burke Motor Inn. Stable Economy Australia's economy, he said, is one of the world's most stable. When the U.S. went through a recession recently, Australia was one of the least affected countries in the world. "When the U.S. has a recession —or as they say, when the U.S. sneezes everybody gets a cold — Australia's unemployment never rose above 2 per cent." he said. Many other nations were more severely affected by the American setback. Helping Australia get ahead, Mr. Buchanan said, is capital from the U.S. and Great Britain. Australia's credit is tops, the speaker said. "The Australian government always pays its overseas obligations. We were able to do it, in spite of great sacrifices, during the depression and it has paid off for us." In addition, he said, Australia has a social stability. It is modeled on the English system. It also has the English system of law and government and diversified industry. With Australia forming a "springboard" for the vast southeast Asian territory, a great potentiality for trade and commerce holds further promise for Australian progress, Mr. Buchanan pointed out. The speaker was introduced by W. Paul Forney. Guests at the meeting were Junior Rotarians Steve Vaatveit and Alex Gillett and Junior Rotary Anns Joan Lenz and Marianne van Schaik. Intercity Meeting Oct. 19 President Howard B. Bockhaus reminded Rotarians of the inter city meeting — Carroll, Manning Coon Rapids and Odebolt — at 7 p.m. next Monday at the Carrol Methodist Church. Rotary Ann? from the four'cltibs will be guests Dr. Walter Steigleman of the Uni versity of Iowa journalism depart ment will speak. Mr. Buchanan comes from the State of Victoria, which he said is almost the same size as Iowa However, its capital, Melbourne has over one million population. Australia, Mr. Buchanan said, is almost the same size as the United States, but has only about two-thirds the population of New York City. Most of the population is concentrated on the southeast coast. The vast interior of the island continent is somewhat comparable to the U.S West. Heavy Immigration The population growth is sparked by great lumbers of immigrants — over 200.000 a year—and an increase in the birth rate, he said, Dairy and beef cattle and large numbers of sheep are raised in Australia. "The sheep industry is the backbone for ha|f of our export income," he said, adding that it would be even greater if the U.S. did not have such a high tariff on Australian wool. Australia raises 25 per cent of the world's wool and 50 per cent of its fine wool from Marine sheep. Mr. Buchanan spoke of the pioneer life in the "outback" or sparsely settled interior. There ore few inland towns, but many "cattle stations" which are spread out over millions of acres of land. The only outside contacts are by means of radio. Children go to school by radio and emergency calls are handled by radio. SURGICAL PATIENT Lawrence A. Irlmeier of Temple- ion is a surgical patient at Iowa Methodist Hospital in Des Moines.

"But surveys have turned up several physical factors in the search for the true cause of alcoholism." Dr. Marsh, here to speak at the annual assembly of the California Academy of General Practice, said in an interview that there is less baldness and less obesity among alcoholics than among healthy persons. "Also, their body fluids are out of balance and they seem to need great quantities of liquid," he added. "We know that alcoholism is not an emotional disease, although it does lead to many emotional problems. There is a mysterious physical X-factor which some people have and others haven't. "The alcoholic may be something like the diabetic. In that instance, the X-factor was found in the pancreas. The day may come when we can give an alco- lolic an injection of some sort and le will be able to drink all he wants." The danger in alcoholism, Dr. Marsh said, lies in the- fact thai a?e heavy drinker builds up a tolerance to alcohol. It takes more and more to satisfy him. Even ually, immense quantities of liquor lead to illness and death.
