A Long Way in Avoiding Trouble with Men ou Ro Th» following article Is the last of a series UralJnf with Hit; expcrl- roces of a woman writer wlio l»> c»™ one of America's mteralorj- hord*. By MISS I.ESUK SHAW Wriiten lor NEA Service A ftw inonltts ago, I chucked n government Job as emergency'relief worker, and went out on Ihe lilgli- road to discover for myself just why people roam around ihc country looking for jobs, the chances of Janduig one, and the treatment of a- nomad job-liuntcr by his fellow citizens. I sliced myself a neat .cross-section Seam the life In eight states, small towns and large cities. When I had money I traveled on train or bus. In-reverse, I'hltcli- hiked. In-telling my experiences, I am Bsied first—always' "What about Ihc men you met? Didn't you - have trouble?" When.I answer, "Aljnost never," tliere is Incredulous. silence. And yet, It is a fuel that tlie men I have met when I have found myself broke or'stranded have for the most part been helpful. Not that I didn't meet many sharp traders, keen •to capitalize, on a girl's hard luck. I did—and : ga\e tliem a wide berth. Tlie secret of avoiding man trouble lies in knotting how to read them, whom to avoid. The generalization of a souijd psychologist I met recently is. I believe, accurate: ' "A; man won't bother n woman •wlio finds him. distasteful.- That .hurts'his vanity. He wants to Ijc admired, to be desirable. His vim- fty controls his reactions." Show a man he is like grit In your spinach and he will let you severely alone. Unlcbs, of course, ,lie'Is drunk. My experience as a hitch-lilkcr had started off so well that I was over-sanguine. An elderly naval officer offered s lift; even let me drive ills car half of Hie \\ny. Wlicn we parted, you would have thought we had fought through a war together.

Up goes Steel Rail Goes on Bender (ARK.)?. COURIER. NEWa It's the steel rail, not Hie observer, thai has been on a bender In this case, although one can't be blamed for not crediting one's'eyes. The rail looped the loop when four cars of a speeding New York-hound express Irani were derailed near Bristol, Pa. Two women passengers were slightly Injured. Ihc speedometer, 55, GO, 65. Around uy shoulder his' arm—his hoi breath on my check. We lurch around curves, skirt fences. "You're ,crazy," I shout. "Slow down." Dad tactics. That makes him mad. p v goes the .speedometer. I nrust be shrewd and •conniving. "Great car," 1 call out, as we iail over n bridge, just missing a ttoitc culvert. " ".You're a great kid," he answers. 'Afraid," "Me, When I drive, I make time. You're just an old slow Motion." It works. Afler a few more chal- tiscs, 1 persuade him lo tut me take the wheel. At the first service station, I careen Into the drive- vny, and safety. He drives oir, swearing. That was my most dangerous cx- rleiicc. Once,, to be sure, I water- ilkcd several miles on a small boat, hereby putting myself pretty much it the mercy of the men who owned t. But they didn't even lalk lo inc.

God Is In every history, tliough a | s nal ahv-iys easy, particularly In the m tam O f contemporary events, to discern ills '"Hid nnd His Judgments. We are loo apl to think of God as certain Hebrews thought of '«'", as n being who is-on' our side, nnd who chooscg us for Ills special revelations and mcrcl°s wlillc .Ignoring the thought of God thai the truly devout and prophetic-'Hebrews had. What aho prophet saw was, the mnorlance of being on God's side lie knew- that God did not make arbitrary.- choices and arbitrary Judgments, dial the Almighty was not a being subject to vain niid human sentiments, ready to be swayed by man's show of devotion "id «y the obsequiousness of his ritualistic observance. The prophet saw Ood as a bein" or righteousness nnd truth, merciful and just, ready to forgive mid •ccclvc men wlio turned to Him from their slnfulness and'crror but ici'cithclcss unyielding in His Helicons demands on those who bowed 'irreverence with Irreverent hearts.

We see In these Mne^js, as, well as the mun of t-'ouijee and plaln-spokermess. ,^Fnen, In Ihe last seven lessons of- the quarter, we see the prophets In a new era oj Israel's prosperity appealing to the people to build upon true foundations and urging them to right tr.p wrongs that, mi- nglilcd, have brought every era of prosperity to ruin, : We see Amos 1,1 * flourishing period of the nation's materialism "'"-' for justice urgln« tint re We see: kings devb'ting themselves 1 with high statesmanship to sound coinses and bringing blessedness to •weir siibjecis, and we see, also Kings who turned to their own schemes and their own ambitions overwhelming both themselves and those over whom tlicy professed to rule.

In Hos'ea the prophet's message emphasizes Hie note of God's-love, and in Micah we have the clear simple expression of religion In terms of justice and mercy and walking humoly before God.
