The sound of planes. We hold our breath Were it not meat and drink to us,
Until the leaping hunger, pale and white, The dark virginity of night
Of searchlights fears the sky and bares Would ever be inviolate
The anonymity of night, From the phallic finger of this light.

But it is ours, to whom the dark

Is life, to tear it with our hand,
And blast the shaking sky with light
Until it falls t o where we stand.

United States has to rely upon imports of
tungsten, our production of electric light
bulbs depends to a large extent upon our
being able to buy tungsten from abroad. If,
because of exchange difficulties, we had
trouble paying for the tungsten we need,
our imports might be curtailed, and our
production of electric light bulbs diminished.
Unless we could substitute the manufacture
of fluorescent lights, some Electrical Work-
ers would be thrown out of jobs or would
have to learn new skills in order to take
other jobs. Such a situation the Interna-
tional Monetary Fund could help to avoid.
Sometimes a nation which experiences dif-
fics]itis in making payments to other coun-
tries for imported goods tries to improve
its position by deflating its prices and forc-
ing down wages in its own country. Al-
though this method may work, it creates
low wages and unemployment within the
country ad eventually puts a damper on in-
ternational trade by curtailing the amount
of goods other nations can sell to that coun-
try. Workers who are unemployed or are
paid wage% that are too low can't afford
to buy the goods produced by other nations.
Another method that a nation can use,
if it has difficulty paying for imported goods,
is to restrict imports by trade barriers and
high tariffs and to promote exports by
