Or maybe we can get at it better by making companions like these: Considerably less than 72 billion seconds have passed since the birth ot Christ. If, w.e took thousand dollar bills and stacked them in stacks, one on top ol the other, it would take almost sixteen piles the height of the I .m- pire State Building to use up the 72 billion. If we stretched these same thousand dollar bills, end to end, along the ground, they would stretch 6,818 miles- or enough to reach trom coast to coast and back, with enough left over to go almost from New York to Chicago. Visualize the total production ol every lunn, every plantation, every livestock range and leed- lot, all the fruit, the vegetables, the nuts — everything produced by our agricultural industries in an entire year. With $/2 billion we could buy every bushel, every pound, every gallon and, what's more, buy it twice over. This is the amount the Executive Department of our Government proposes to spend in one year. And for what> Granted that some expenses, like the interest on our huge public debt, cannot be avoided. But a curelul examination of the budget details will show that a great many of the proposed expenditures- including those for Na tional Defense, are not only unnecessary but are downright rediculous. , —If our, .family budget were allocated and spent as loosely and freely as Tne nureaus ui w asiimgiGii pose, and if we authorized every expenditure that any member ot the family wanted to make, we would soon be looked on as spendthritts and disowned by the com" jnunity. Yet this is precisely what the Executive Department of our Government is threatening to do—and with our funds. If we, as citizens, expect ot our representatives in Washington the same irugality, the same sound business judgement in the handling of finances that we, as individuals practice ourselves, we must speak up and say so. We urge you to take just a little time—right now— to let your Senator and Representative know how you feel about it. it is their vote that will decide how much will be spent and for what. it goes without saying that financial stability ano economic health are far, far more important in the cast, of our country than they are in the case of any incu yidual. And this country, like our families, belong to u; and is our responsibility. But whether country or fan, ily, it is oui financial resources, our future that is a*, atake. No one else is going to foot the bill. And as we think about the size of that bill' it migtv oe helpful if we keep these facts in mind: frrom the year I 792, when the first session of • w the first Congress convened, to 1950, the Government collected $406 billion in taxes. From 1950 through 1956, the Government collected $433 bilion in taxes. In other words, the Government collected during just the past seven years $27 billion more than I it collected during the previous I 58 years.

But is will be a new good looking construction .on a Main Street corner. Also it likely will trigger a service sta tion rebuilding and remodeling movement. Other major oil companies will likely choose to NOT be outdone. In that case, the new station will be a blessing in disguise.

Nineveh, at the time of the story, was a great and wicked city, and Jonah received the call of Uod to go there and speak for ri{:ht and truth. It was not unnatural that he should rebel against such a task, it was unpleasant to go as an individual and set himself up as a preacher in a hostile environment of luxury and wickedness. He • might well have asked what his lone voice, crying in such a scene, could accomplish. Iiut there was further antipathy in Jonah to obedience to this call. Nineveh was a foreign' city and Jonah, as a Jew, might have been expected to be prejudiced against it. Jews believed the in selves members of the chosen race. Here emerges the central idea of the book and its teaching. It is a missionary book, presenting with considerable clarity the conception of God as the God of the whole world whose grace and mercy are for all people and not fov a chosen few. In this respect, Jonah's reluctance to go and preach in Niner ception ot veUsion and~TQe" Inat \lack of any apprehension ot the richness and fullness of God's mercy, which has led people to be apathetic regarding the spread W the Gospel. This view has its adherents in all ages. Is it not true that we are most content to live within our own narrow circle of home, community or nation, disregarding Die world and its needs? If the world would be more a world of Christian missions, in the spirit of the Book of Jonah, it would be a better world than U is today.

IOWA Bishop Of Berlin Speaks In Minneapolis Communist East Germany's favorite target for attack and West Germany's symbol of Faith, the Rt. Rev. Otto Dibeliu.s, Bishop of Borlin, will be the main speakei at a Public Event of the Lutheran World Federation's international Assembly being held in Minneapolis, August 15-25. The courageous Bishop is aUo a president of the World Council of Churches and chairman of the Council of Evangelical Churches in Germany. He is coming to Minneapolis to speak on "Our Mission to Those in Need" at 8 p.m. August 20 in the Auditorium. Other speakers from Jen- dan, Canada. Holland and Venezuela will be on the evening's program. For the past few years and' particularly the past few months, Bishop Dibe'tus has been bitterly attacked by East German leaders as a pro-NATO (i.e. pro-war) politician and an "old hand at preaching fire and murder, glorifying war and blessing arms as in 1914 and 1933," according to Communist newspaper propaganda. Posters of his face superimposed on an atomic bomb arc seen throughout East Berlin. Two-thirds of the Bishop's dio cese lies in East Germany. The Bishop's uncompromising stand for justice and right for the churches in the East has won the (respect and admiration of churchmen throughout the world. The August 20 Public Event is one in a series of such evening programs during the Lutheran Assembly where outstanding church leaders from different parts ot the globe will be speaking on topics of interest to all Christians. The events are open to the public at no admission The Assembly will draw 700 church leaders representing 71 million Lutherans in more than 50 countries to Minneapolis for this meeting, the third in the 15-year history of the Federation. 4-H and F.F.A.

President Eisenhower" down, knows good and well those highly tooted "rights" do not and never have existed, particularly in the Southern States. Last September a few radical "intellectual lightweights" in Clinton, Tennessee defied . not only their state government, but the Federal Government of the U.S.A., and very successfully so.
