ECONOMIC HIGHLIGHTS For a number of obvious ipnni, the desperate plight of England is of increasing concern to the American government and the American people. In the first place, she is our sole major ally abroad, and we have depended upon her for essential as sistance in our social and political conflict with the Soviet Union. In the second place, we are spending an enormous Bum of money in an effort to underwrite and stabilise the fal tering British economy, and our com mitments for this purpose may be still further increased. Lastly, Eng land is still the nominal head of a world-empire, even though the ties that bind have loosened perceptibly, which Ilea astride some of the most strategic areas in the earth. "Export or die" has literally be come the theme, of present-day Eng land. And, so far, the results obtain ed have been depressingly below an ticipations. Hie American loan is being consumed at an alarming rate, and England's dollar credit in this country?with which she purchases many of the essentials of life?is go ing down and dowip. Unless condi tions materially improve,* it will be used up in a very'few years. It is, in brief, providing the English people with a minimum standard of living? but it is not expanding the export trade upon which, a sound "and self sustaining economy may be built for the England of the future. This failure, is certainly not due to a policy of pampering the average Briton in his daily life. The English diet is still poorer than in wartime. Only -a small part of the manu factured goods made?such as tex tiles, motor cars, china, Scotch whis key, silverware, leather articles, and the rest?can be sold in England. The great hulk of it, -by law, must go abroad in search of more dollar credits. All of the necessities and many of the luxuries are severely rationed. This is what the British call their-"austerity program" and ft fully justifies its name. As a result, the vast majority of 'art waging their own in dividual battles to keep the wolf from the door." Then has been a tremendous price inflation, and in- I comes have not kept pace with it This is particularly true of the white-collar classes, who i to pay 1047 prices with, which are not much above the-1939 40 level. The buying power if the pound isVonly about a quarter ef what it was seven or eight years ago. Worst of all, prices are still going up, and the end is not in sight To make the situation still men dif ficult, the quality of* the manufac tured goods available to the English people has gone down in must in stances, which in itself is a form of price rise. . The Labor government did not create England's terrible economic problem. That was the result ef the incredible drains of war, of her loss of foreign markets, of ^h* shift of economic power to the United States. Any government would have had to face the same problem, and most au thorities think that any government would have had to put something very much like the present austerity program into effect. ? ' Secretary of Agriculture Clinton P. Anderson in addressing the Fourth Annual Oklahoma Save the Soil Clinic in Oklahoma City, recently made the following remarks, which could well be studied by all people interested in our soils and their pro duction: "What will the United States be like a hundred years from now? Will the people be prosperous ?well fed?with plenty of nutritious milk, fruits, and vegetables for a balanced diet? W1U they be more vigorous than we are?healthier? longer-lived? Or weaker sickly? aging and dying before our time?" These questions are asked by Secre tary Anderson. In. answering, he said: "The story of soil exploitation be gins about three and a half centuriee ago, when the white man's plow.first broke American sod. The plow that stroke the plains loosened the dust cloud as well .As the dust storms boil up in the West and carry across the Mississippi, and the Ohio, and the Allaghenies, and the Atlantic Seaboard, we find that our account with nature's bank of soil is marked 'overdrawn'. "Wise leaders suddenly see that the tired and worn-out countries fit ting exhauatecL along the sidelines of history are oar counterpart in the ancient world. Once-, they too had stood strong and vigorous, but they alllowed their land's life tp ebb out in the red and yellow and Mafic lit vuleta, just as we are permiting ours to do. Already -more than half, of our farmland has bean seriously in jured. Each year erosion is tstf mated to coot th? country cloM to four Mllion dollars.
