Dear Three P’s:
Some time ajo newspapers
■were carrying headlines about
the probable excess population
of this country and of the J
world. I only read the head- j
lines but .it seems to me that:
it is only a great deal cf hulla-|
baloo to increase the circulation
of the papers. I have two chil
dren and I am able to feed
them and educate them, so that
it does not' affect me. Why;
should I worry about it. It al- 1
. so seems that tnis so-cailed
’ problem is becoming a oe.iiical
and religious issue. Why all'
the fuss? Why not give away
our surplus food? j
You sound like the average,
naive American, who lives from
day to day in a world of his
own, without being aware of
what is going on in and around
him, nor in the world.' You are
living in a world of ineptitude.
To say that this problem does ■
not affect you. is fo'lish. E' -
ery day you are paying through
the nose bv means o' axes, di
rect and indirect, to help the
and illegitimate children through
welfare programs, supporting
hospitals, distributing food: fed
eral housing, in which the ten
ants do not pay an economic
rent and the properties do not
pay their share of local taxa- j
tion, and in addition there is
the four or five billion dollars
in foreign aid.
It is an economic-social prob- .
lem and not a religious one. ex
cept as religion teaches the con- j
trol of sexual and lustful appe-!
tites. It becomes a political is- !
sue as it leads to the economic
problem of supporting the ex
cess population by taxation, in
volving, the taxing of all for the
support of the undernourished.
In this country it is estimated
that by 1980. the population will
go over two hundred million.
This will call for more and more
welfare programs based on in
creased taxation. The increased
population tends to center in
large cities, where the tax bur
den is already heavy. There will
be a need for more and more
high risers, of tall tenement
buildings, to house the. increased
population, and more and broad
er welfare programs. Already.
In California, it is costing the
state more than eleven million
dollars per month for the child
welfare program, almost half of

which goes for the support and

There is no doubt that this coun
try will be able to support this
increase in population for the
present. It is the world-wide

’ lation that is causing the con
i About two hundred years ago
. Malthus adduced what is now
| known as the Malthusian doc
j trine. Malthus stated: “The
, power of population is indefinite
ly greater than the power of the
j earth to produce subsistence for
! man.”; further that unless the
! population of the world were re
> duced by war, pestilence or fam
j ine, the world would face a pop-
I ulation calamity. However, sci
i ence has been able to increase

degiee. In China, over the years
the population has been decreas
;ed by d.alhs through famines,
t The world is now changing and
the population of the world is
increasing much faster than the
. rate of increased productivity of
the earth. The world! population
j is increasing at the rate of 135,-
* 000 per day, or at the rate of
I fifty million per year. If this
rate of population growth con
tinues, by the year 2000 the

ed from the present 2.6 billion
to over six billion people, be
yond the capacity of the world
to feed, house and maintain
proper sanitary and health con
■ ditions. This will bring about
'an explosion of people in one
direction or another; migration
to productive areas or widespread
epidemics of disease. Further,
1. there is even now a question of
an adequate water supply for
existing population. It is esti
mated that today there are over
1.7 billion people living without
'sufficient food, shelter, clothing
and adequate health facilities,
i Further that there are 7.500 peo
' pie dying each day from under
nourishment. If all of the sur
| plus food in the U.S. were given
; away it would, on a minimum
: basis, last about two weeks. So
[ this is not an answer.
! The increase in population is
'occurring in East Asia and the
Latin countries. Italy is and al
ways has been an over-populat
ed country, unable to produce
enough food for its own people.
Migration has solved part of the
problem. Mussolini tried to con
quer and take over large areas
of east central Africa as a fu
■! lure bread basket for Italy, the
1 area to have been taken over,
populated and cultivated by
Italians. The U.S., since 1954,
beside other aid, has sent food
to Italy. Tunsia, India and Ko
rea to the extent of 1.8 billion
dollars. It is a question how
long this country can continue
to tax itself for this support.
Puerto Rico is another part of
the world, which without the
support and aid of the U. .S.
would have a population under

For the past year I have been
keeping steady company with a j
fine young lady, several years
my junior. I have a steady job
and would like to get married.,

off and is attending a great many |
fraternity affairs with a boy j
I from the neighborhood. What!
should I do, as she seems to be !
t evasive and yet encourages me to I
believes that she wants to marry j
i Dear Julius:
Os course, there is always the
way out bv asking directly if
she will or if she won’t, and ask
for a definite answer. However,
your lady friend is undoubtedly |
looking the field over before
coming to a definite conclusion.!
[ As you might be left in the lurch |
! anyway, press her a bit by sug- 1
gesting that you intend to buy j
an engagement ring and want to |
set a date. If she hems and i
haws, then you had better look
for another filly.
