Beginning his career as a lead-
ing authority on church archi-
tecture in the province of Quebec,
Prof. Alan Gowans of the fine arts
department of Rutgers University
quickly exhausted that rather lim-
ited subject and went into the
study of primitivism.
Prof. Cowans currently teaches
a summer course at the University
on the history of the popular arts.
PRIMITIVISM he said relates
the fields of modern and ancient
art. It is a "way of looking at art
and has nothing to do with intelli-
gence as the name might indi-
Prof. Gowans explained that
the primitivist doesn't look at
art visually. "It is not his busi-
ness to put down what he sees,
but instead to express an ob-
Ject as he remembers it," he
Sometimes this concept is dom-
inant, as in ancient times, he re-
marked, citing the stylized figures
of Egypt where a head in profile,
attached to a front view body and
legs, remained in side view.
* * *
"BASICALLY, today, most peo-
ple's taste still runs to Renais-
sance. People like a cow to look
7 ike a cow," he said.
However, as the influence of
modern art and-comics increas-
es, primitivism illustrated in
these media parallels their
growth, the professor indicated.
The Toronto-born professor
feels comics are the folk art of
the future, since they represent
"the genuine cultural document
of an age."
*According to Prof. Gowans' the-
ory, artists like Grandma Moses
are "anachronistic," because they

are naive and do not reflect the
sophistication of contemporary so-
* * *
"FOLK ART," he said, "is the
art for, of, and by the people."
Because comics deal with folk
imagery in a folk style, they form
"the lowest common denominator
of popular taste--ideas which
people understand inherently, as
Popeye, the strong man, protects
his weaker friends."
After receiving his bachelor's
and master's degrees in fine arts
at the University of Toronto, Prof.
Gowans traveled on to Princeton
University for a PhD. in the his-
tory of art.
The professor hasn't picked up
a brush since 1946, but instead
has spent his energies teaching,
writing, carrying on research and
lecturing. After all, father of two
children Prof. Gowans says,
"When baby needs a new pair of
shoes . .11

Associated Press staff Writer
Thirty million people more in the
world every year . . . 80,000 new
mouths to be fed every day .. .
food production still lagging .
more than half the world even
now underfed.
The Food and Agriculture Or-
ganization (FAO) voices new alarm
about the world food problem and
the population race. It was of some
concern before the war; it has
been critical since.
The specter of world famine
shows through in all documents
of the U.N. specialized agency-
its reports to the Economic and
Social Council meeting in Geneva
during July, its FAO council meet-
ing in Rome in mid-June, its stu-
dies for the FAO world conference
next November, in the formal
statements of its officials.
FAO WAS organized to deal with
governments not only in the grow-
ing of food products but with cot-
ton, wool, jute, rubber and forest
products, as well as fishery devel-
. But Norris E. Dodd, director-
general of FAO, says in his sum-
mer report "80 per cent of the
work now being undertaken is
intended to improve food pro-
duction and distribution."
The FAO has been sounding
warnings for two years that at
least a two per cent increase in
world food production was neces-
sary to avert shortages, even fam-

ine. A one per cent increase thus
far recorded has been just barely'
able to keep pace.
* * *
FAO STRESSES technical and
economic aspects of its work in
its one optimistic finding that the
problem is not insoluble.
The agency has been trying to
develop some kind of plan to
stockpile either food or funds to
buy food to meet famine emer-
genciesn the world. The latest
experts' scheme is to build up a
combination money-food bank. It
promises hot arguments at FAO
sessions late this year.
The population increase is not
due entirely to a bigger birth
rate. People, young and old,
who would have been killed off
by malaria, tuberculosis, mal-
nutrition and other diseases that
UN agencies are now attacking
-and conquering-throughout
the world, now keep on living.
The better the food situation
gets, the more people are kept
The FAO council's last report,
drawn up last Decenber, says
there are now more than 300 mil-
lion more mouths to feed than be-
fore the war, an increase almost
twice the total population of the
THE REPORT cites Ceylon to
argue that in the future the spread
of preventive medicine and im-
proving nutrition will speed up
the rate of increase.
"In the last 20 years the death

rate in Ceylon has been halved
and with no appreciable change in
the birth rate the population has
increased by 46 per cent,
"The improvement in health
already evident in Ceylon is ex-
tending to other under-develop-
ed countries. To produce the ad-
ditional food required for its
new inhabitants, and something
above that to improve the piti-
fully inadequate diets on which
the larger part of its people still
subsist, is becoming the world's
biggest problem."
In holding that the problem is
not insoluble, Dodd says modern
agricultural measures can step up
food production. Besides modern
technics of irrigation, growing, in-
sect, disease and weed control,
brought to the land by a small
army of FAO experts all over the
world, FAO points to some eco-
nomic factors that can help.
These include, the FAO report
says, the fact that farmers must
feel they have security in their
work, that they should have easy
credit to develop farms and that
they should be assured a living
HERE IS DODD'S latest word
on the food-population race, to be
debated by the summer meeting
of the economic and social coun-
cil, and by the UN General As-
sembly next autumn:
"The significance to world
food supplies of the rapid popu-
lation increases taking place in

the two Americas, Africa and
Oceania will have marked ef-
fects on food requirements and
supplies during the next few
"A recent assessment of the
trend of food requirements was
made by FAQ on the basis of pop-;
ulation estimates supplied!by the
population division of the UN" for
countries other than the U.S..R.,
eastern Europe and China.
"THE RATE of increase for the
whole of this area, which in 1951
had a population of 1,672 mil-e
lions, for the period 1948-51
amounted to 1.4 per cent a year.
"On the basis of the above and
of the best available estimates of
the population trend in the other
areas for which detailed statistics
are not available, the annual in-
crease in world population is about
30 millions==an additional 80,000
new mouths to be fed every day,"
Russia claims that it has plenty
of food for its people, has cut out
rationing and reduced prices. But
statistics inside Russia are impos-
sible to check. And Czechoslovakia,
once a sugar beet exporting coun-
try lavish with its own meat and
fruit, now has to depend on food
imports from Russia and still has
to curtail its people's food allow-
ance. The food situation in Poland
is also reported not good.
Mainland China, another tradi-
tional famine area, still has fam-
ine spots, it is reported. But the
reports cannot be verified.
