John D. Rockefeller 3rd Has Real
t Chance To Help His Fellow Man
' By HAL BOYLE
NEW YORK-4P) There will be no more peace in our time.
John D. Rockefeller 3rd has seen to that. He has carried his
family's generous tradition of philanthropy right out the window.
John D. Sr. did wonders for world health with his millions.
John D. Jr. made a hopeful bid for world order by donating a
line site for the United Nations to build its echo chambers.
And John D. three? What i he
doing? Why, he's building a guest
house for visiting relatives. There
is no' doubt he and his wife prob
ably need it.. They hardly have
room in their East side apart
ment to entertain the 95 relatives
who showed up for their wedding
But young Rockefeller has put
some 3.000.000 other New York
families on the spot. Because
you know how relatives are--their
hinterland kin are going to
expect the same kind of treat
ment. "Rockefeller built a house for
his relatives," they'll sneer.
"Why don't you? Getting too big
for us, eh?"
And this will be difficult to an
swer, because most out-of-town
visitors are sure that everybody
here lives like Rockefeller or
Tommy Manvillo. Maybe they do,
but it is often on a smaller scale.
The trouble with John D. 3rd's
adventure in family goodwill is
that he built his guest house as
if he really wanted all his
obscure relatives to visit him.
It has a living room with a
fireplace, three bedrooms and
three baths. It has a sunlit patio

Japan Or Support Her
PORTLAND, Sept. 7. UPl
David - M. Maynard, economic
counselor in Tokyo, said here that
the United States must buy goods
from Japan or face the prospect
of supporting that country.
He criticized the tendency of
disapproving Imports from Japan.
That, he said, will simply mean
that Americans must go on pay
ing out more money to support
"The goal Is to have Japan
completely seif-suslaining by 1953

that she must increase her ex
ports greatly," he said.
Production, Maynard said, Is
climbing steadily. The main prob
lem now Is selling the goods.
