Affairs at West Point.
"Food and the Population" was dis
cussed in a small group Thorson attended.
Authorities meeting with the group were
John StovaJl of the USDA and Tim Sulli
van of the American Freedom From Hung
er Foundation, Thorson said.
The majority of the small group agreed
food aid and population controls should
be linked and increased literacy could help
solve the problem, he said.
The group could define world hunger
and population problems, but couldn't
establish the mechanics needed to solve
them, he said.
Thorson said they decided world hunger
is a concern for the United States because
hungry people are unstable and likely to
become hostile to America.
Thorson whose transportation was paid
by the College of Arts and Sciences, will
make an evaluation of the conference for
the college, he said.
