Our Doily Bread Sliced Thin by The Editor ——•Alex. H. Waahburi' Christmas Star of Man's Faith Many arc the Christmascs that have gone before this one, in different lands, under changing circumstances. The times were good, or the times were bad. Every so often there was war, but most of the Christmascs were celebrated in peace. Not a wholly happy picture, of course, but true to the -tradition and history of men. The unbeliever says that because the world isn't always at peace, because men aren't always prosperous and happy, therefore Christmas isn't really important. But it is. For Christmas is the thing that tics the hearts of modern men together, helping make them better neighbors—so that in the larger scheme of things there shall be better nations, and less war and more peace. The believing heart knows this —has known it even longer than we have known Christianity, back to the day that the world began. For the earliest of men had their religions. And the civilized world of the ancients knew many legends and teachings which preached kindness and ncighborliness. Christianity succeeded these because it was the most perfect expression of men's hopes and dreams. , Not even Christianity, however, has made men perfect. But you would be a sorry cynic, indeed, to argue,that the world hasn't grown steadily better—from Antiquity, to the Middle Ages, to Today. For all men, in all lands, have a' common heritage of hope and fear. And the faith that helps make the men of one nation better individuals and neighbors helps make this a better world for all. That's Christmas 1048—and we revere it now. WEATHER FORECAST Arkansas: Considerable cloudiness, rain Friday, in extreme northwest this afternoon, tonight.

Some -100 items of clothing and persona 1 , equipment — things the three services are paying $247,000, 000 for this year—are laid out on counters for the edification of red faced military buyers. The munitions board—an aclviso ry group in the defense establish merit—got the exhibit together to convince the three services that many items should be the same for everybody, and cost less. The board emphasized that it has no intention of trying to stand a month earlier. The fall was due to a drop in food prices for the fourth consecutive month. The first decline from a steady 111)48 living cost climb came in mid' October. So today's figures recorded the second straight monthly dc crease in cost of living. . The index measures the retail' prices of goods and servces purchased by moderate-income fami lies in large cities. Food is the major item in the index. Food prices have continud to go down slightly since mid-November. That points to a third decline in the living cost index when figures for mid-December become available a month from now. The index for mid-November was 172.2 per cent of the 1935-40 average of 100. At this -level, living costs were 4.4 per cent above a j year ago, 29.2 per cent above June, 1946 when wartime price controls were abandoned, and 74.6 per cent (above August, 1E139 when Wold jWar II began. Foods alone dropped 1.9 per cent from October to November. Clplh- ,ing and house furnishings prices 'declined fractionally. Foods in November were 2.4 per cent higher than a year ago but 1-42.5 per cent above the controlled price period of mid-1946. Meats dropped most among the foods, but there were two per cent declines in dairy products, fruits and vegetables, and fats and oils. Egg prices rose two per cent and prices of sugar and sugar products advanced a bit. The bureau said that butter prices at 75 cents a pound averaged lower than in any month since June 1947.

The seven Japanese warlords were executed beginning al one minute after midnight today. Their bodies were cremated and their ashes scattered to the winds in dif ferent areas by U.

An eyewitness account of their last minutes before they entered the death chamber was furnished by Shinsho Hanyama, the Buddhist priest who was permitted to visit them for final services on the day preceding the hanging. The priest WHS not permitted to enter the exo- culion chamber. • The priest said Tojo and ' the others went "courageously" to their deaths, a report confirmed by the official description of the hanging issued by Gen.

But it said the CIO has taken steps to purge itself. Four of the men named by the committee as "Communist officers" arc union presidents. They are Harry Bridges of the longshoremen's union, Ben Gold of the fur and leather workers, Abram Flaxcr of the United Public Workers of America, and Donald Henderson of the food, tobacco and ag ricultural workers. In a report, in question and answer form, of "100 things you should know about communism and labor," the committee also: 1. Warned the working man that if he went on strike under a Communist government, the government "would send soldiers around with guns, to kill you." Question: "Kill ME, personal ly?" Answer: "to kill you. personally." 2. Listed 10 CIO unions in which it said Communist leadership was, "strongly entrenched" in 1944. It said the Reds are "still in the sad die" in a number of them, such as the united electrical workers and longshoremen's unions. Story of Christmas Spirit But Not the Normal Kind Pine Bluff. Dec. 2,1 ~(/P) — This is a -story about the Christ mas spirit—in reverse. An un i d e. n t ified person slipped into Oakland park under the cover of darkness and blasted away at a flock of geese which make their home on the park lake. Three geese were found dead. Another was wounded. The park commission has offered a $25 reward for information leading to the arrest of the killer. The park's caretaker, K. H. Bearden, who said he felt as if he had lost a member of his familv, chipped in another $25.

It also proposes that an ad dilional 850.000 be tacked onto his tax free expense account.

After dawn today planes — presumed here to be Egyptian — bombed a large Jewish community southeast of Tel Aviv, Censorship did not permit the name of the community to be disclosed. The extent of the fighting could not be judged from here immediately but apparently it threatens to shatter the fitful truce which has been in effect along the desert front in recent weeks, from the Egyptian border to the Faluja picket, where 3,000 Egyptians are held in an Israeli trap. The Egyptians were said by Israeli spokesmen yesterday to have demanded immediate release on all 3,000 as a condition of armistice talks, rather than a step-by step release, as offered by Israel. j There was no indication yet that ithe Egyptians were attempting to 'break through the Faluja ring and! j tree the trapped Egyptians.

While the Stalin-Hitler pact lasted, from 1939 to 1941, the committee said the Communists actually carried on such a policy through "terrible strikes that delayed U.S. 7. Declared that the aim of communism is to seize control of "your job security, working conditions, pay and union membership, if any," and to "end forever your chance of living as a free citizen." The committee listed the CIO transport workers as one unioi that "belatedly tried to clean out Communists" under the direction of union President Michael Quill. It said this union could paralyze bus, subway and trolley systems some of the largest cities and UL. up some of the irujst important airlines.

The 50,000 members of tho South western division of the Communt cations Workers of America will receive $3 to $6 a week increases lor an average aggregate increase of 10 1-2 cents. The total cost of the increases to the telephone company is estt mated at $11.500.000. Of that amount $750,000 is for adjustments of socalled fringe items.

The settlement was reached at 'I a. in. Central Standard Time, four hours before a thrcateied walkout of union members in 'VtiS souri, Arkansas, Kansas, Qklaho mn ,'ind Texas.
