MAY University Of Rochester Professor Brussels—Belgium is an island of busy activity and abundance in a continent suffering from shortages and privation of every description. Entering Belgium from Ger- many, you might suppose the latter was a thousand miles away, so striking is th'e contrast. Automobiles, many of them the latest American models, tear along city streets and palatial motorbuses loaded to capacity with vacationists are familiar sights on country roads. Stores are full of goods and purchasers are buying them even though prices are on American levels. People are very well - dressed, women in the cities wearing gaily - colored modish dresses. Stalls and pushcarts overflow with choice fruits and gorgeous flowers. What the eye observes, solid information confirms. In some branches \of production Belgium is well ahead of pre-war out- put, while in others progress to- ward old levels is being made. Along with Luxembourg, her economic partner, BeJgium is turning out 6V2 million tons of steel this year, mostly for ex- port. Coal, the principal natural resource, is being mined almost •Standby Of Future- The Carrier is now the thing. Navy Retires USS Iowa And '0 Future Stress Goes To Carriers, By DOUGLAS LARSEN NEA Staff Correspondent Washington—The U. S. Navy plans to put its last two giant battle wagons—-the USS Iowa and the USS Missouri—out of com- mission. This marks the end of an era in naval history. The retired sea giants will be added to the \mothball fleet\ and could be sent to sea again. But it is believed doubtful if they will ever see action unless war should come very soon. The men and money that it took to keep the pair of giant warships at sea will be diverted to aircraft carrier operations and for the development of anti- submarine warfare. The era ended by this move is the one during which' naval ex- perts believed that having the most of the biggest, most heavily armed ships gave a nation dom- inance of the sea. This theory first began to be most seriously challenged soon after World War I. Advocates of more air power, led by Billy Mitchell, began call- ing the battleship an obsolete weapon. Out of this argument came the title of \Battleship Ad- miral,\ applied to those admir- als who were the stoutest defend- ers of the worth of the battle- ship. Although during\ World War II the Navy had 23 of the giant bat- tle wagons in service, more than were ever used at one time be- fore, the greater development of submarine warfare and naval aviation apparently proved to be the clinching argument against the giant warship theory. The chief use of the battleship during World War II was in leading am- phibious invasions. If war should come soon, with the need for such an operaiton, undoubtedly some of the 15 battleships, in mothballs would be readied for service again. All other nations interested in maintaining sea power have fol- lowed the same trend. \Argen- tina, Brazil, Chile, France, Rus- sia and England still have bat- tleships in service. But all but one of Russia's and two of the British are over age. And no new ones are being built,. except pos- sibly in Russia. The end of the battleship class makes the cruiser-type ship the heaviest craft the Navy will have afloat. The cruiser is smaller but is much faster, much more ma- neuverable and is more adaptable to anti-submarine warfare than the battleship. Do Yourself A Good Turn- Turn To Page 2 Electrical Center The \Old Mo,\ nickname for the Missouri, is 887 feet long and displaces 45,000 tons. The Navy's newest cruiser, the USS New- port News, is 716 feet long and displaces only 17,000 tons. A bat- tleship costs about $110,000,000 to build. The first craft commissioned by the Navy as a \battleship\ was the USS Maine. The sinking of the Maine by the Spanish in 1898 in the harbor at Havana, Cuba, precipitated the Spanish-Ameri- can War and inspired the slogan \Remember the Maine.\ It was built as a heavy cruiser type but commissioned a battleship in 1886. The USS Indiana was the first ship built and commissioned as a battleship. Most old Navy men agree that the USS Pennsylvania was prob- ably the most famous battleship the Navy ever had. She was called The Grand Old Lady of the Fleet and probably housed more gold braid in her time than any other ship. From 1916 when she was commissioned until the start of World War II the ship served as the U. S. Navy's only flagship. At Pearl Harbor she was one of the few ships to survive the surprise bombings with only slight damage. She was destroy- ed at Bikini during the atomic bomb tests. The Navy says \she probably fired more ammunition than any other ship in history. That included constant service in the Pacific campaign.\ The Missouri was launched in 1944, saw extensive service dur- ing the Pacific fighting and be- came most famous as the ship on which the - Japanese surrender was signed. The Iowa is the largest man-o- war ever launched. She was com- missioned in 194S, was assigned to the \Tirpitz Watch\ in which she neutralized the threat of that German warship which was re- ported foised in the Norwegian waters. She carried the late Franklin D. Roosevelt across the Atlantic on the first leg of his trip to the historic Teheran confer- ence.

Al Marlow's Poultry Farm PHONE 16-F-3 at pre-war volume and ship ton- nage has nearly reached former strength. Antwerp and Ghent, Belgium's great ports, are handling up- wards of 80 percent as much traf- fic as before the war. Harvest prospects are reported to he good, yet Belgium must import a high proportion of its food. Inquire of chance acquain- tances the cause of their coun- try's amazing recovery and you are told it is the result of hard work, the will to rebuild. That's true enough, but other , factors have been operating such as monetary stability which is connected with currency reor- ganization and credit regulations, set in motion soon after libera- tion at the end of 1944. Comparatively speaking, Bel- gium's equipment for produc- tion suffered little damage in the war, and reconstruction, though still unfinished, has been very , substantial. Transportation fa- cilities were given high priority on the rehabilitation agenda. Moreover, Belgian losses in the war -were not large. \*\ Like England, thickly-peopled. Belgium lives by foreign trade, importing raw materials and food and. exporting raanufactured goods, Assisted by America in particular, Belgium obtained cer- tain raw materials soon after liberation, which enabled factor- ies to start production. Foreign demand for goods has given Bel- gium the advantages of a sell- er's market. Coal output which affects in- dustrial production at every turn, of course, has been remarkably stepped up by granting special financial and social welfare in- ducements to Belgian miners and by bringing in foreign workers. Belgium's own yield of coal is being supplemented by imports from the Ruhr Valley. And the trade of the African Congo colony, much, increased during the war, has a signifi- cant bearing on the well being of the Belgian motherland. Belgians are aware that the economic health of their country is closely bound up with world conditions. They believe that if the United States had not come forward with the European re- covery plan, Europe would to- day be in the grip of a- calami- tous economic and political crisis. To promote commerce with neighboring Holland and Luxem- bourg, Belgium has joined them in the so-ealled Benelux combin- ation. Tariff barriers have been removed and a large increase in. exchange is anticipated by 1950 when the Benelux Agreement comes fully into force. Belgian statesmen are pushing earnestly for genral tariff reduc- tions the world over and for the effective collaboration of the West European union of .nations along economic as well as mili- tary and political lines.
