Editorial . . . Tie Arms, Aid To Mideast Peace INTERNATIONAL LAW lags at least 6,000 years behind national law in development. The attack by Israeli commandos on the airport at Beirut, Lebanon, m outrageous act of retaliation for a barbaric act of terrorism committed against an Israeli airliner in Athens, is but the latest proof that in the handling of gi'icvances between nations, we are still in the primitive stage where it is every man for himself and the verdict of 'justice" is unto him who is strong enough to seize it. Israel has taken its eye—a dozen eyes—for an eye, and the result is that already high tensions in the Middle East are raised 1o a new pitch. The possibility of renewed war looms c ,giiin, with the attendant danger that East and West could be thrown into a confrontation that might set off World War III. The United States and Russia, in the judgment of their governments, tjavc vital interests to protect, or strategic ends to further, in this critical area of the world. But surely their larger interests dictate that no conflict between lesser nations be permitted to draw the two greatest nations in the world into a mutually suicidal war. And yet both have provided, and continue to provide, Arab and Israeli with the wherewithal that enables them to kill or threaten to kill one another on a large scale, to terrorize each other's property and keep the world on the edge of panic. * », * What can the Soviet Union hope to gain in the long run from its backing of the Arabs? If its goal is eventually to deny the West access to Arab oil, it must know that this is something the United Stales will lake the gravest counter-measures to prevent. This is equality true of any Soviet ambition to make itself a naval power in the Mediterranean or to create a new bloc of satellite-allies in the Middle East. Conversely, it is not in the long-run interest of the United States to attempt to achieve, anywhere in he world, a drastic shift in the existing balance of power that could cause Russia to feel menaced. Lacking international law, or the effective means to enforce it, the United Nations—which to all intents and purposes means the U.S.A. and the U.S.S.R.—ought in all good sense to declare a military quarantine of the whole festering Middle East. Let no one give or sell another weapon to either side in this area, where, despite the disparity in size between Israel and the Arab world, the strengths and weakness of both make the situation pretty much of a standoff—a standoff neither the United States nor Russia can change or has anything to gain from trying to change. Let Arab and Israeli go on killing one another if they' wish, but let it also be made plain that each act of war or terror by either side, and each act of retaliation by either side, will be punisherl with appropriate economic penalties which both America and Russia have it in their power to inflict. Let aid be given when both sides tire of war and sincerely want to talk about peace. Until then, hands off, and a strict watch to ensure that the contagion docs not spread beyond the infected area. l^<fc_ People In The News Wool Growers Price Support Price - support, payments are available to every growe rwho marketed shorn wool in 1968 from sheep or lambs he owned for at least 30 days. This reminder comes from Chairman Parker Pierce of the Jeffers o n County Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Committee. He said, "We want to remind wool growers that if they have slaes records for wool produced in 1968 applications must be made by January 31 for wool price support payments to be made in the spring on their 1968 marketings." v The program, administered by the county ASCS office, is Parker Pierce. The applicant fills out., a form, obtainable from the county ASCS office, attaches sales docusments supporting his application, and returns the applications to the ASCS office. "He should keep records showing the 30- day ownership of lambs in case it's needed'," said the ASC committee chairman. "Since payments are made on marketings of unshorn lambs which have been owned for at least 30 days, the county ASCS office needs records on these. "All the details on just what records are needed are available at the county ASCS office. Any wool grower who has just started with sheep should drop by the county office for information," he said. Applications must be received in the county ASCS office by January 31, 1969, for price- support payments on shorn wool marketed during 1968. Payments will be made beginning in April.

McCarthy, D-Minn., entered the presidential primary election contest in New Hampshire. Today In Washington WASHINGTON (AP) — The surgeon general says attempts to combat the Hong Kong flu epidemic are being frustrated by doctors who use limited supplies of vaccine on low priority patients and by people who need the vaccine but. won't ask for it. Because public health officials realized early this winter there wouldn't • be enough vaccine to go around, they suggested that most of it go to the elderly and the chronically ill, • especially those with respiratory illnesses. "A lot of people just won't go in for it," said Dr. William H. the wart Thursday.He said elderly persons are the most reluctant. Stewart said he didn't know how much vaccine had been given to people not seriously threatened by the disease. But he said it's clear all of the vaccine is not going to the high risk groups.

OF AMERICA 10P' MfiOOr MURRAY MadEOD-W-MAKflNPATTERSON "WHAT IS YOUR LIFE?" Another year has gone by and we are beginning a new one. Many who began 1968 are not living to begin 1969. Newspapers report daily of those Who have departed this life. Some have a sudden illness, some heart attacks, others die from accidents. Truly, life hangs by a thread. Each time we travel the highways we risk the chance that one slight mistake by a sleepy or drinking driver may terminate our lives in a grinding crash. Added to this, recurrent world crises with the possibility of atomic warfare. If this ever occurs multiplied millions will suddenly be annihilated. For anyone to face these facts and yet feel that 'this couldn't happen to me,' is folly. The hazards of illness and sudden death are a very real part of life. In view of this, many are extremely uneasy. While trying to ignore the frightening hazards of this age they engage in frantic activities and become engrossed in social and material affairs. They work hard at 'being happy', but underneath it all they realize that "a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth." (Luke 12:15.) The wise person faces the facts. Instead of burdening himself with useless anxities, he plans for the future; his future includes this life, death and the life to come. Only the faithful Christian can face the future with confidence. He has obeyed the commands of Christ, 'his sins have been forgiven, and he is living the Christian Jife with the assurance of life eternal. In meeting the problems of life, the Christian realizes that "it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps" (Jer. 10:23). He therefore avails himself of the. rich resources of God's word to guide his steps. He is not unduly concerned with material values since he has learned of the true riches that are eternal (Matt. 6:1920). He is not promised freedom from illness or tragedy, but he does have the promise that "all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose" (Rom. 8:28). Regardless of what may happen or When, he is prepared. His soul is safe in God's keeping and cannot be harmed by accidents, illness, or qtomic blasts. Truly, he has "the peace of God which passeth all understanding" (Phil. 4:7). "Whereas you know not what shall be on the morrow, What is your life? It is even a vapor, that ap- peareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away." (Jas. 4:14). Are you a Cnristian? A Christian believes that Christ is the Son of God (Jno. 8:24), has repented of his sins "(Acts 17:30), has confessed the name of Christ (Matt. 10:32), has beeVi buried in the waters of baptism for the remission of sins. (Acts 2:38; 22:16; Rom. 6:3-4), and is living a faithful Christian life (Rev. 2:10). Why not begin and live this year as a Christian so that all will be well with you in the eventthat you are not here next year? Cherry Street Church of Christ 2416 Cherry Sr. Charles D. Crosier, Min.
