solution of what he considers one
of the world's most serious crises:
public health assistance, research
in sociology, economics, and nat-
ural resources, and educational
programs by such private insti-
tutions as the Planned Parenthood
Concluding. his remarks, Vogt
emphasized the threat of the pop-
ulation explosion to every child,
and the fact that "There can be
no greater evil than to condemn
the unborn to misery."
Dr. Myron Wegman, dean of
the Public Health School, pointed
out the futility in public health
programs which often save people,
only to permit them later to die
of malnutrition. While great prog-
ress has been made in epidemic
abatement, high mortality still re-
sults from a large group of diar-
rhetic diseases.
Discusses India
Prof. Ronald Freedman of the
sociology department discusses the
critical situation in India, where
the two per cent annual popula-
tion increase, coupled with a de-
clining death rate, pose a problem'
far more complex than was sup-
posed in the past.

plications of the population prob-

plans in the emerging nations
must incorporate this problem
Regarding birth control, Prof.
Meier said that people are far
more resistant to planning famil-

He added that one cannot mere-

WCBN Says,
Charges Stand
Against IQC,
Radio station WCBN news di-
rector Jack Huizenga, '61, said
last night that charges, against
recent action of the Inter-Quad-
rangle Council will stand as re-
ported by his station.
Saturday, three news broad'-
casts accused the IQC, of holding
early elections 'because the offi-
cers threatened to leave the or-
Part of Claim
Huizenga held to the original
accusation even- though newly-
elected Council president Thomas
Moch, '62E, and West Quad presi-
dent Robert Thorpe, '62, had re-
vealed the proceedings of an exec-
utive session which supported only
part of WCBN's claims.
Moch and Thorpe had explained
that both the vice-president and
the secretary-treasurer would re-
sign if the elections were not held
Thorpe said that the Council
members voted to move elections
from Mar. to Feb. to solve a prob-
lem in the transition of adminis-
trations but were influenced in
their voting by the prospect of
having to replace two officers.'I
Huizenga said he would stick
to the information he had re-
ceived from his own sources.
"The tip came from 9ne of the
persons involved," he said, "and
all the information camne from IQC
members-people who were pres-
ent at that meeting."
