I~earson Reports From The United States Sonate The United States And Africa The continent of Africa, af ter years of relative quies- cence, is now moving swiftlyI upon the world stage, By vir- tue of its natural resources, its geographic location and itsi vigorous leadership, Africa de- mands our attention. Still, in the minds of many Americans it remains a dark continent as mysterious and unknown as it was in the days of Living- stone. To understand the need for an imaginative and sensitive United States foreign policy toward Africa, therefore, we must first understand the con- tinent and its problems. Africa is an immense and complex region, containing 11,- 500,000 square miles, 310,0OO, thousand people and 39 ind'e- pendent nations. America, on the other hand, with an esti- mated population of 197.000,000 and an area of 3,615,000 miles, is approximately one.third the size of Africa. The ethnic diversity of Afri- ca is equally staggering. For example, there are more than 250 tribes in Nigeria alone and over 800 languages are spoken in Africa south of the Sahara. Another challenge facing Af- rica today is a rural-urban conflict which severely com- plicates its problems of na- tion-building. As tribesmen leave the village and move to the city, they are uprooted, not only from their homes, but from an entire way of life. The governmental turmoil and tendency toward oneparty states which characterize Af- rica today flows from the at- tempt to control the effects of this social upheaval. Africa also needs to train hrge numbers of technicians and professional men to main- tain the machinery of govern ment and industry. Their eco- nomic and political integrity can only be assured by elimi- nating the necessity to rely on foreigners to stuff their bureau cracies. In addition, the continent is )lagued with the racial prob- lem posed by Rhodesia, South: ~,frica and the Portugese col onies. Needless to say, the problem of reconciling the leg- itimate African demand for un- iversal suffrage with the rights of white settlers to full citizen- ship and equal economic op- portunity in negro-controlled states remains one of the most critical challenges facing Af- rica today. While Africa is a challenge we cannot ignore, we must carefqlly consider the nature of our involvement there. To become too deeply enmeshed would involve us unwittingly in situations where our influ. ence would be marginal and the goals not worth the price. The Europeans have a long history in Africa and it is only natural that their role be more intimate than ours. Nonethe- less, we must not react as isolationists, for this would be a betrayal of our beliefs and a denial of our responsibilities as leaders of the free world. There are no easy answers JEWELL COUNTY RECORD Thursday, June S, 196'/ Page 3 - Section 1 nnu to the challenges of Africa, Yet some solutions must be 'found if we are to pl,ay a con- structive role, whlle avoiding the over-involvement that can only frustrate the interests of everyone concerned. It is time to begin the dialogue if we are to act wisely in the future, Mrs. I. w. Ransom We are still having some nice showers of rain, but not as much as some of the places are reporting. A very good program was held by the pupils, teachers and helpers of the Bible School at E.U.B. Church in Esbon Sunday evening. The community of West Branch held a party for the former Martha Shirley, Mrs. Martha Randall, and husband, John. A money tree was pre- sented them and a bounteous lunch in connection with the 4-H tour group that met at their regular meeting place at West Branch schoolhouse. A good crowd and a very nice time and lunch for all. Martha and husband were leaving on Sunday to live a few miles from Washington, D. C. (Some- where in Maryland where they will live for the present.) We all wished them well and a good trip. All this was held Saturday evening. We are saddened to hear of the sudden death of Mrs. Floyd Olena of Burr Oak Saturday afternoon in a one car acci- dent on a gravel road some- where near the Lovewell Lake. Mrs. Lorena Pate and chil- dren, Mrs. Ollie Ransom and Joe were Sunday visitors of Mr. and Mrs. Joe Pate in Lin- coln County. Mr. and Mrs. Cal- vin Hawkins of Denmark were there also. Crops seem to be about like ours here, but the wheat looks a little riper th.an here. Like ours, some does not look too good. Mrs. Don Pederson and chil- dren were visitors in the Mrs, Lorena Pate home over the Decoration Day holiday. Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Moore called here after their family picnic of relatives that they always have on Decora- tion Day at Mankato. Mr. and Mrs. Clyde Bossen spent Tuesday evening i~ the Mr. Paul Heiman home. Mrs. Georgene Bossen and Mrs. Judy Hillman and two little girls went to Jamestown last Friday afternoon to a Tup- )erware party with Mrs. Phyl- lis Hake, NOTICE A representative of the So- cial Security Administration will next visit Mankato, Kan- sas on Thursday, June 15, 1967.
