** Everyone agrees that it v.ot J

production is concerned. Un
fortunately the desire frr none

tfo’h of that desire ate o .e d.f
Among the reasons f.r want-'
ing more rapid growth are that

growing more r*: aly than we

prove our r andard of living, we
h to ~t a-up our output per
capita, r s well as in the ag
Each of these three reasons
deserves careful consideration, i
As to the first, there is no]
question that economically we l
today are by far the strongest j
in the world. No other
country come? even close to
equaling our output of goods
and services. This is good, but
it may not be good enough. We
art in the midst of not only a
cold war, but also an economic
and ideological war. The state
ment is being made day after 1
day, and more or less from one
end of the world to the other,
that ind'vidual enternrise can-:
not produce as effectively, or as
efficiently, as a centrally plan
ned and directed cconomv. -V--!

in this nation believe that, but

On the basis of all the statis
tics that are available it is clear
.hit Russ.a is currently grow
ing more rapidiy than the Unit
ed States. Os course Russian
statistics have to be taken with
a grain of salt But even allow
ing tor this, there obiousiy is
no room for complacency.
Neither does it help to ration
alize the difference by saying
thet Russia is a relat.velv un
developed country and In conse
tUice is op rat ng from a low
base. T. is s .rue, but most of
] he n. ti ns we «. ope to niprjss

undeveloped. To these nations
jSi'.ch a rationalization may be
i interpreted as a good reason for

"Population Explosic t“
We are in the midst cf what
has been termed a population
■ explosion. At present there are
ISO million persons in this
country. According to the es
timate of the Department of La
bor this number will grow to
208 million by 1970. This is a
1 15 percent increase. The labor
' force, however, will grow dur
ing this decade bv nearly 20 per
i cent. To provide jobs for all
of these workers, while increas
ing our standard of living, is a
i fantastic job. It can be done,

a country to grow, or grow
more rapidly. The answer to
tnis has to be “no’’ unless one
is willing to destroy all person
al freedom. And even by the
destruction of freedom it is not
I possible to maintain a high rate
Icf growth indefinitely. It is
somewhat comparable to the
pressure and direction found
: during a war. For a time pro
duction, at least of certain times,
can be increased enormously.
: But it does not follow that such
an increase can, or would be,
ma ntained year after year.

that is in the year in which ]
fne individual becomes 72. If <
this person continues to work 1
all year long and his earnings
; re over SI2OO in that year, his
benefits will be payable only
from the month he reaches age j
72. Here is an example to il-|
lustrate this point. An insured
individual is continuing to work
for S3OO a month, but he comes!
nto the social security office in
January and files his • applica-I
lion at th P t time. He will be
72 years old in April. It will I
be explained to him that as
long as he continues to work,
there will be no - monthly bene
benefits paid to him until April,
but fom then on h's benefits
w !' be ra d monthly regardless
cf his earnings the rest of the
year. He works all year long
