GEORGE: "Yes, I certainly \vould like to hear why you call that an old fashioned idea, Judge." ... ,,, OLD JUDGE: "Glad to tell you, George. Until recently, a person known as an alcoholic was generally treated as a social outcast. Little if anything was done to understand him or help him. But, during the past few years, medical research and study has developed that alcoholics are really bick people ... that there is usually a deep- rooted physical, social or emotional reason behind their behavior. That's why today so much is being done to help them by finding out and correcting the condition that leads them to excess." GEORGE: "How many folks are there like that, Judge?" OLD JUDGE: "Well, according to scientific research, 95% of the people who drink, drink sensibly. 5% do so unwisely, at times. Included in that 5% is the small percentage of the sick people I'm talking about," GEORGE: "That certainly gives me a clearer picture.

Some will call for changes by law. , These necessary changes should be made, for it seems evident now Ihat enlistments arc not going to provide thc country with the Army it needs for its protection and its obligations. The draft will have to continue supplying the necessary personnel. If morale and discipline temporary soldiers, and if an are to be sustained among these Army career is lo be made attractive enough to draw the men who arc not now volunteering, 4then it is clear that some hidebound Army rules must be relaxed in thc interest of better and more demoeralic treatment. There is an obvious clement of danger in this. A military organization is essentially undemocratic, especially in wartime. Even the Russians discovered that, banished the political commissars from their armed force, and instituted thc automatic rank, absolute authority, and unquestioning obedience which seem indispensable to military cf- fiency. **' But it is unlikely that Mr. Pat, terson's board will go too far in equally unlikely thai Congress, it its. recommendations.

The political and economic problems on hand, while pressing, arc long term affairs as compared with the plague of hunger which is sweeping many parts of thc world and is increasing in intensity daily. There s no use giving a man machinery for economic recovery if he's too weak from starvation to work it. Let's state this thing in terms of the crude truth. Millions of people arc going to die from lack of food during the next six months — and oven the best efforts we can make- will not prevent thai. There are half a billion hungry folk in Ihe world. There is food •-•nough for only three-quarters of them. In other words some 125,000,000 unfortunalcs arc condemned. Of course these ligures cover Hie whole globe. We hear more about Europe because it is closer lo us, but the hand of hunger lies heavy on many parts of thc Orient — notably India, China and Japan The question of food relief isn't one for tomorrow.

In any event, my observation i thai this crisis won't by any mean be confined within the period be tween now and harvest time Wi shall be wise to face thai righ now. The bulk of Iho relief naturally must come from the western hem! sphere, and Uncle Sam ha« the greatest resources to meet thc emergency. However, Canada and Ihc Argentina will be looked to foi heavy contributions. Mr. LaGuar dia's announcement thai he will appeal lo the Argentine for grain is good news, since the under-privileged countries arc banking much 011 help from that great country. Mill, even if every nation con- Inbules its surplus food to relief, there won't be enough to .go around. We mustn't forgpl that thc stocks on hand are sufficient for only three-quarters of thc hungry folk. And what's thc answer to thai? Well, one answer is Ihc one I've given already — lhal millions must die. But that's not the complete picture. We can increase the available relief stocks if we peoples of he western hemisphere will tighten our bells a bit in the way of voluntary food rationing. I'm sure there are mighty few who wouldn't be eager to make that contribution if Ihey could sec thc pinched faces of thc hungry people abroad, especially the children.

The workers had been drafted into the militia yesterday by the governor who soughl lo prevenl a power blackout in the stale. The strike has been called for Sunday midnight.

Louis, March 30 —(/P) —The navy plans lo send rockel messengers liO miles above Ihe earth to obtain mysterious air samples thai may hold Ihe key lo belter wealher lorecasting and radio communications, it was disclosed today Lieut. Cmdr. Daniel F. Rex of the navy's office of research and inventions told Ihis reporter that the navy hopes to begin launching experimeiils in.tho fall wilh rock- els lhal will carry melcorological instruments away beyond the slrat- osphere and conceivably enable collection of data hitherlo exclusive '~ science. Development of an ionosphere rocket by the California Institule lo Technology al Pasadena, Calif., was announced March 21 by the army ordnance department, which said the rocket had been over to the signal corps . turned Rex added Ihat a contracl now s being negptialed wilh the Aero- jet Corporation of California for procurement of 15 rpckets, each weighing 2,500 pounds, cosling $20,- OOU apiece, witn an overall measurement of 24 feel and havinr a maximum altilude of 325,000 feel. According lo Ihis descriplion, -the navy's rockets will be larger and have a higher altitude potenlial than thai involved in Ihe Pasadena announcement. The army said its ionosphere rockel weighed 1 000 pounds, was 16 feel long, and had soared lo 230,000 Ihousand ieel, a dislance of 43 1-2 miles. Here-lo address Ihe American Associalion for Ihe advancement of Science, Rex declared the roc- ets could carry a 150-pound load of instrument lo a hcighl of 00 miles He said Ihe navy planned lo begin i?ru", chlng them from the desert at While Sands, New Mexico. Thai's the same sile lo be used Ihis summer by Ihe army for launching reassembled German V-2 missiles. Rex said Ihe navy's program differed from the army's in lhal "Ihe army is largely inleresled in op- eralional characterislics of Ihe rocket, whereas in our program the rocket will be a tool to obtain data on the upper atmosphere." He gave this outline of objectives: The plan is lo determine tho exact composition of ouler almos- phere by aclually "picking up" physical samples of air whic> laler would be subjecled to chemical analysis. Knowing the exact composition ol the ouler almosphere or inos- phere, scienlisls could determine Lo what extent radiation of the s'un is absorbed before it slrikes Ihe earlh s immediate atmosphere. This would lead lo accurale measurement of the sun's radiation, thus throwing new light on weather conditions and the phenomena causing .radio interference. Another objective would be to determine the way thai air circulales al great heights — a factor to be reckoned with in the future development of "guided missiles."
