She was suspended between the love that had lusscd her goodbye thla morning and the love that now waJted for her at the fleia. SJio wept for each but most of all for the child. They had known each other so short a time, she had thought to give him so much over the years: all she had given him was life — but not for long. Paul put his arm around her. His heart was filled with a bright clear name of rebellion. There was •0 much to do and, he had believed, ao long a time in which to endeavor, to accomplish. Now, this moment or tho next, no time: no time at all. The urgency of his rebellion was so great that he could have set the crippled plane down, as U it wore a toy. He thought of all whom he loved, and blessed them. He thought of Connle and the name burned brighter By what Hght had he rejected her, through what arrogance felt her purposo inferior to his own. by what vain reasoning and spiritual I other life, or many, completely al- tercel. Thc fire was out; the plane disabled, and no more. It waa not now an instrument of destruction, no longer Hying with death as its destination. The passengers emerged into the good air, the hot, clean sunlight and took their first steps. They surrounded the pilot, and presently ne went to make his report. This waa not his Initial encounter and victory. If he shook it was with with gratitude and the never-absent sense of his responsibility. He things, now thought that he of many had time again, but mainly of those whom he loved and who were dependent upon him. Paul spoke with his fellow passengers. A number said, "Thank you," some earnestly, some with embarrassment. One man smote Paul upon the back and said heartttly. "Well, we got out of that one, guess our numbers weren't up," but a woman touched his hand and told him, "I don't know your name pride assumed that his ministry dld not Include her? He himself, had said on Easter Sunday that it was not certainty but vision, love, smd faith which opened the doors. He unfastened his safety belt, went down the aisle and spoke to the passengers. The stewardess said, "Please return to your seat, Mr. Lennox," but he went his way. What he said none remembered, in words. But they listened, and were quieted, even as they knew there was no longer buoyancy beneath them but the sense of the plane settling. And a man spoke with astonishment to Paul. He said in an astonished voice, "But twin-engine planes hold «their altitude on a single engine." This one did not. Paul went back to his seat fastened Ws safety belt, drew the girl and the baby close and waited Now the field was in sight, and those who could endure to look from the windows might see the red crosses on the ambulances Standing beside the runway. Paul toucfced the soft cheek of the child, for of such were the Kingdom of Heaven. High above the field, beneath a flawless sky, sweating men »n the tower saw the plane stagger home, the crippled bird tn ragged, uncertain flight. For the watchers, the. thick Mack smoke wrote a signature of terror. On the field others who Anticipated their own airborne Journey*.

The passengers hurried to those who awaited them to telephone booths, and to send wires. The man who had thought to escape a problem by taking a plane was longest in his booth and emerged smiling, to go to the office and book a return flight. The girl and the child were met by her parents, white, shaken, thankful people who clutched her and the baby. the living flesh being the only reassurance. And she said to them of Paul, "i don't know what we would have done without him." They parted, after she had said that she would one day corns to see him and bring her husband, and Paul went off with Simon Adams's oldest son, who for some time could find no words of greeting and. when he could speak, said only. -Thank God-for, V anything had happened to you——" "But nothing did." Paul reminded him, aware that this was not tn strict accordance with the truth. The services were held on the morning following his arrival, and that evening he took a train for New York. Lying w his lower berth, and not very comfortably because of his length, h« listened to the steady singing of the lirhAAlc. *«.. - .I »/? ~ ask, meaning it, that is all, the sum and substance. It is always there, and the heart has only to reach out and receive. And now he thought that, having been spared, He must accomplish twice as; much. ( The thing was abundantly clear. In what might have been almost his last conscious thought, his mind had turned toward Constance Marshall, Informed with anguished desire to reach her, to say that in having loved her he had been right: in having rejected his love, wrong. Thinking of this n>5 was aware, as he had been in tlw plane, of his presumption. By what arbitrary yardstick had he measured her, how could he guess what rich resources of the spirit animated her, how know ? For knowledge takes a lifetime. Now he was again reminded ot his Easter sermon. He had preached to a congregation. It had been better If be had preached to himself. Not certainly, he had counseled.-'but vision, love, faith, He might have added "expert- njont." By these means a man at- •fains to the knowledge "of God and of those created in His image. There had not been a time tn which this had been Imperative: nor one when its operation was more necessary than now. Such knowledge ts not Imparted by a yardstick, whether that of textbook, philosopher, psychologist, or For example, there was the Moscow version of the American political convention, published on this page July 9. The AP reported that Raido Moscow broadcast the remarks of Vladimir Morev, Soviet journalist, as follows: "The conventions were just a racket invented so that naive people should imagine that the votes of candidates are re« cruited by just these means, and that these candidates are chosen for their personal qualities. In actual fact, the question Is decided by a small 'Circle of •political'bosses'." ""', We grant that our convention system has little to do with tl?e popular vote, but, as in eve.ry- thing else, the Russians always manage to tell just half the truth — leaving out the half that would enjbarrass them among their own people. The omitted fact is, that, how ever we happen to choose the nom inees of the American politica parties, the final election issue i decided by a free and secret ballot of all the people. Anyone who broadcast or printed such a fact in Russia would be shot. Everything in America, politics included, is a gamble. Dwight Eisenhower quits a lifetime career in the army to be the Republican nominee for President, It's a gamble, because ho could be defeated. All the people* ot America will decide that issue. Can you imagine the Russian high command gambling on anything with their own people? The bid of Ollentlne and Jones of Jttle Rock on a contract for the lighway 63 job was accepted. The jreviously rejected low bid of $274,216 for the job between Black Rock and Imboden was approved after Johnson said a restudy had con vinced him the bid was not out of line. The three jobs on which bids were rejected were 6.25 miles o Highway 95 from Clinton southwest in Van Buren County' and two county road ounty.

By GIB STALEY PITTSBURGH Iff)—Philip Mur ray, president of the CIO United Steelworkers, plans another meet ing today with industry officials in an effort to end the 41-day na tion-wide steel strike. There was speculation the in dustry may come up with a new offer but neither Murray nor com pany negotiators had any repor of progress as they ended tw days of secret conferences yes terday.
