Scientists at parlay deeply divided over hope ior man DflTtMl fl*Am T>O*VA H* , . _. * ....... _ _ Continued from Page 23 Why, questioned R. c. Desai, deputy director of the United Nations Office of Science and Technology, in the single most important nation on earth is there a lack of communication between the intelligentsia and its government? "Maybe," he added, "it is unseeming for a foreigner to comment on this, but I am not blind." Desai said the gap was not only between the universities and the administration, but between the universities and the "silent majority." "1 suggest that if you (the scientists) rise above your own political beliefs you can talk to the government," he said. Desai, described as an apostle of "sweet reasonableness and light" by one activist, said he had hope for the future of man. He said the gap between the scientists and the government was caused by the Vietnam war and that neither the war nor the gap would last forever. He said people slowly were becoming aware of environmental problems and were doing something about them. Even the U.N., he said, has passed an agreement on environment in just two years while some U.N. proposals take 20 years to be passed. During the 20 years he has spent in the United States, "never have I seen an American government so concerned with the environment," Desai said. "You are in the vanguard of the movement to bring society forward," he told the scientists. "You are dissatisfied with the administration and with politics. You are concerned with developing nations and that is good. "But the problems in this country are not the same as in developing countries. We don't view the problems of growth as you do. Without growth there would be degradation. "The youth of my nation (India) are fighting for the things that the youth of this nation are rejecting," he said. "Developing nations are afraid that your concern with the environment will lead to depriving them of the things you already have." Desai was attacked by Dr. George Wald of Harvard's Biological Laboratory as being too hopeful. Wald scorned the idea that politicans would respond to reasoned argument and facts. He said agreements meant nothing. "What the hell has the Bill of ftights ever done for human rights?" he asked. "I'm one of the prophets of doom," Wald said. "I teach 350 kids at Harvard and they take this stuff seriously. Where will they be in 10 or 15 years? "We're past it, but the kids all over the world aren't past it. They deserve better." Desai said that if we accept the prophets of doom, "there are a lot of caves in the Himalayas" (to retreat to). "They're already overcrowded," someone yelled. Delwiche said there was no danger of famine in the world in the next 50 years, barring a catastrophic war, and that it was technically feasible to feed a world population of 10 billion on land that is being farmed. He said scientists who advocate birth control as a way to avoid famine were "misguided individuals." He apparently was referring to Dr. Kingsley Davis of the University of Cali- fornia at Berkeley, a population expert who coined the phrase "population explosion." Dr. Davis, speaking here Monday, painted a dismal picture of an overcrowded world and said that abortions, birth control and self limitation of families were the only ways to save the world's quality of life. Nixon asks added funds for pollution unit staff WASHINGTON (AP) - President Nixon asked Congress yesterday for an additional $475,000 appropriation for the Commerce Department to provide staff support for the National Industrial Pollution Control Council. The money would be for the fiscal year starting July 1. The council, made up of industrial- representatives, was set up by the President in April to provide advice on industrial programs involving improvement of environmental quality.
