China's Food'
Problem Serious
Says Dr. Adolph
Blames Little PIre-War
Industrialization for
Shortages, Inflation
The serious food problem in China1
is closely connected with inflation1
and the low food supplies there, Dr.
William H. Adolph, formerly professor
of chemistry at Yenching University
in China, said in an interview yes-
terday at the International Center.
He said that China before the war
was industrialized very little and that
the people were in the habit of rais-
ing their own food and as a result
of this, special food habits developed
among the rural population. The
many methods they have used to
solve this problem, he commented,
make a very interesting study.
,Speaking of inflation he turned to
Prof. Phillip Sullivan, who taught
economics at St. John's University
in Shanghai. They agreed that
wages in China are not keeping -up
with the inflation. Prof. Sullivan
said that probably the only solution
to the problem would probably be a
new currency after the war.
They said there is such a bad1
commodity shortage in China because
people just don't want to sell the
goods they have. The goods are worth
more than the money, they explained.
During the conversation Dr. Adolph
mentioned that his son is now in
western China, a lieutenant in the
American Army there.

NEW YORK'April 13.-Manpower
Chairman Paul V. McNutt said to-
night that the management-labor-
government cooperation which has
been achieved in wartime can create
after the war "an economy of abund-
ance that will outstrip any prosperity
this country has ever known, and
make it endure."
He told the American Federation
of Labor's conference on "Labor in
the Post-War World" that the con-
tined labor - management coopera-
tion, coupled with "courage and im-
agination," can achieve a "peacetime
"We can guarantee every man and
woman who wishes to work a full-
time job at a fair wage," he said.
"We can guarantee every farmer a
steady, consistent and profitable re-
turn on his crops.
"And in doing thig we can give full
scope to honest, private initiative-
full opportunity for fair and reason-
able profit."
The manpower situation is "rela-
tively good," McNutt reported. Man-
power has been provided for muni-
tions, and with certain exceptions
the production programs are on
schedule or ahead, "Notably the cru-
cially important aircraft program,"
he said.
