Dean Acheson Urges
Postwar Relief
By Gretchen Smith.
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
"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
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
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. Mrs. Herbert Leh
man, Mrs. Ellen Woodward and Mrs.
