Father Walsh Discusses
living Space' With Japs
ly th# Associated Press
TOKYO, Mar. 4. —Nations that
honestly need "living space” for
overcrowded populations ought to
have some way of getting it without
plunging the world into war, the
Rev. Edmund Walsh told the Tokyo
Industry Club.
He is vice president of George
town University, Washington, D. C.,
and heads the university's School
of Foreign Service.
(Japan has been badly over
populated for years and, despite
war losses, her population is
steadily increasing, observers
oaj ./
"When additional space for neces
sary immigration is honestly needed,
when the population pressure is
authentic and natural, not alleged
or artificial, then appropriate nego
tiations should ensue before some
competent tribunal, with compen
sation and protection assured to the
conceding country. • • •
“Otherwise, organized force could
again plunge the world into
reciprocal slaughter.”
U. 5. Position in Palestine
Is Weak, Stassen Declares
By th« Associated Press
HANOVEK, N. H„ Mar. 4.—Harold1
E. Stassen says the American posi- j
tion in Palestine is “very weak.”
The Republican presidential as- j
pirant told a rally in Berlin last i
night that he did not see any way
the United States could act except
through the United Nations.
"It would be definitely wrong,”
he added, “if this country did any
thing alone.”
He said, however, that America
should take the leadership in see
ing .that the U. N. partition deci
sion is carried out.
Once again he proposed a U. N.
police force with the United States'
supplying its share of troops for j
keeping order in the Holy Land, j
Mr. Stassen’s comment on Pales- j
tine came after he demanded that j
President Truman personally inter-1
vene to stop steel prices from rising.

Nursing Students' Training
In High Schools Studied
School officials today began look
ing into complaints that District
high school girls entering nursing
schools are inadequately prepared
because of stress on theory rather
than practical application.
The complaints were made by two
professors at Georgetown Univer
sity’s school of nursing, Dr. William
r. Taylor and Dr. Richard Weber.
Norman .T Nelson, first, assistant,
superintendent in charge of the
public high schools, said today he
pill ask all high schools to report
to him on girls who have gone to
nursing schools to check their
standing with students from other
Dr. Taylor said the feeling that
girls came to the Georgetown nurs
ing school without sufficient prepa
ration had been evident for some
time. As a solution, the school three
years ago instituted a practical lab
oratory course in pharmacology in
which the student nurses get prac
tical experience rather than all
theory. The v weakest subjects
seemed to be mathematics, chem
istry and biology, he said.
