ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH : ' , II lataMlatMd )aMftatf II, ItH English Engineer Addresses Lions Club at Wood River ALTON, ILL., WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 18, 1950 If MtltNT ftf Tha Aaaodatad ftaaa, ti F« Catf, WOOD RIVER, Jan. 18—Al* though rationing Is severe and then !• high taxation, the British are trying to close the dollar gap, Tony Booth, chemical engineer Irom England studying the American method of refining tt Shell Oil Co., told members of the Lions Club at their regular weekly dinner meeting, Tuesday noon, at Skaggs. Booth said the present problem In England is, "How can we get dollars?" He attributed rationing In the country to not having the dollar capacity to meet requlr.- ments since 50 to 60 percent of Britain's foodstuffs must be Imported. After naming weekly allotments of foods under the rationing system, Booth said, "Yet the general health is good." The average child Is heavier, taller . nd healthier than were the children In 1938. He also told how British morale Is good, explaining that the British are at their best when they are in trouble. Pointing his talk to "Britain Today," Booth gave a resume of what has happened to the country in the last 100 years, beginning with Britain in 1850 when the country was in good position with a strong business organization of guilds and the strongest navy i the world. He named the first World War as a loss of the country In a million persons who were killed or maimed and the loss of the cream of British scientists. Pointing out the importance of modern machinery he said that In 1933, at the outbreak of the war, American coal miners could cut three times the amount of coal as the British because of machinery. After six years of the second World War, Britain was financially at a low ebb and had lost her foreign investments to finance the war.
