The necessity of United Nations co-operation in postwar relief and the rehabilitation of devastated Eu rope and parts of Asia was empha sized by Dean Acheson, Assistant Secretary of State, in a luncheon address before the Women’s Na tional Democratic Club yesterday. Mr. Acheson, who presided as chairman of the United Nations Re lief and Rehabilitation Administra tion Council at the recent Atlantic City conference, declared that “re lief work must be done in Europe, otherwise millions will die.” With out united relief “it would take two generations to recover,” he added. Approximately 20.000,000 people in Europe and 40,000,000 in Asia have been transferred from their homes to work for the enemy, the speaker pointed out. All food and materials have been taken over by the enemy also, he continued, and the stand ards of living of the people have been reduced to a minimum. Even this minimum now directed by the enemy will collapse upon the termi nation of hostilities and the people will have to begin anew, he com mented. "Some one must be ready to bring in goods, without which the people will die,” he emphasized. Danger of Disease Great. Danger of pestilences and disease | will be great, Mr. Acheson asserted. I Millions of persons will attempt to return to former homes, “carrying with them nearly every known dis ease,” he said. The work of UNRRA should be looked upon merely as an emergency to take care of the period between the time when fighting stops and reconstruction begins, the speaker declared. The work will be so great it would be impossible for one na tion alone to carry the burden, but with 1 per cent of the annual in come of each of the United Nations as a contribution, the needed relief and rehabilitation work can be car | ried forward, he added. Checks Already Sent. Several nations have already sent checks for relief to Gov. Herbert Lehman, director general of UNRRA. Mr. Acheson said, while in this country members of Congress have appeared "entirely sympa thetic” toward a resolution now under consideration authorizing a contribution from the United States. In reply to questions at the con clusion of his talk, Mr. Acheson ex pressed approval of co-operation by private agencies with the relief work of UNRRA. The speaker was introduced by Mrs. Henry Grady, chairman of the Education Committee, who has planned a series of programs at i which problems of UNRRA will be studied and placed before members of the club. Prominent guests at tending the luncheon included Mrs. Henry Morgenthau, wife of the Sec retary of the Treasury; Miss Fran ces Perkins, Secretary of Labor; Mrs. Claude Wickard, wife of the Secretary of Agriculture; Mrs. Wiley Rutledge, Mrs. Paul McNutt, Mrs. Tom Connally.
