The article by John Marks and James Garrison (Editorial Pages, March 23), "Superpowers Should Work Together in Third World," made a great deal of sense. Cooperation of the superpowers to solve some of the problems of the Third World where we have no conflict seems a very good place to begin.
I could not help but imagine what might be accomplished around the world if the United States and the Soviet Union worked together to solve problems. Many "hot spots" might be working to improve their countries instead of trying to destroy one another. The "new thinking" being promoted by Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev in the U.S.S.R. provides the possibility of real progress toward a less hostile world.
