Ill HI « 1 I Lazarus, It IP strange that tbore thc Production of two other herts to is no reference to it in the other pay for hcr kc °P- three Gospels — Matthews. Mark r.nd ; Luke. And a deeper question that suggests itself is why, with thnt life-giving power, Jesus exercised it only in these two instances. Dr. Dnvid Smith, a Scottish scholar points out that the miracle .tfoc.urred during the last year of tho ministry of Jesus, When between the Feast; of Tabernacles in October and the Feast of 'the Dedication in December Jesus was Jn Jerusalem and had been driven out by the rulers (John 10:31-39), He represents Jesus as deliberately waiting until thre was no doubt of Lazarus' death that He mifiht "not only manifest His power to his friends, but make a signal appeal to impenitent Jerusalem :by working a miracle which would attest His Messiah- ship beyond all question." If Dr. Smith is right, the miracle had no surh effect upon thc enemies of Jesus in Jersalem, who were not only aroused to greater fury against Him, but sought to kill the resurrected Lazarus as well (John 12:10,). Dr.Smith thinks that the failure of Lnrarus to appear later and show his graditude to the Christ who had raised him was because of his being in hiding from that threat.' Jesus Himself never set the miracle as being of primary importance. His supreme appeal was spiritual. To accept His words, to follow His , example and to find new life through the Gospel of the grace of God — this stands out as above all else. The Gospels might easily have been compiled wholly of miraculous things but it is an evidence alike of their greatnes and of 1 *^ t>i*uiviciii, nj ii^si venues scattered sales near steady on eom- imercial and good lots from 15.0020.00 cows encountering slower movement in cleanup trading: prices easier on some canner and cutter grades utility and commercial cows 12.00-14.00 canners and cutters mostly 10.00-12.00, with some lightweight low yielding shelly kind 8.00-9.50; bulls and vealers steady, utility and commercial bulls 10.5,0-12.00 good and choice vealers 23.00-27.00 few prime 29.00 commercial and low good 18.00- their authenticity that Jesus stands out in their pages, not as a great magician but as a great Savior.

Shelly toon her white coat with her, .and drove out to the Circle, aa always, admiring the neat fields and fences, the restful view across Uie lake. May Anna greeted her affectionately, and commented on the skirt. "It looks so nice on you, dear! wear clothes ?o well." She went on to ask for Shelly's mother, and Shelly replied. There was no change. , . . "I'm glad you could come this evening;" said Mrs, Carr's pillow- soft 'voice aa she led the way to the dining room. "Papa's at a Chamber of Commerce meeting, Anp we had fresh lobsters for Sunday; Uieie was enough leu over to make a nice salad." They ate at one end of the long mahogany table; the meal was perfectly served on place mats ot exquisite lace, May .Anna's talk darted like a humming-bird from the latest cleverness of Carr Maupin to Kate's decision never to take a negative position with her children, thence to the price of tresh tomatoes m the stores, and a brief description of the Shepherd cocktail party at the club. This led directly to the subject in nand at the precise minute when she and Shelly were ready tp movo to the small sitting room. "Oh, dear," mourned May Anna as they went through the wide hall, "It's beginning to rain. Are your car windows closed ?" "They will be," smiled Shelly. "Don't such things get done automatically out here '(" This pleased May Anna. "Take (mt chair, dear. How ia your new cook working out?" "Agnes is a Jewel." "I'm so glad. Lucle Walsh said she worked tor her once, extra, of course, and that she w»s honest, Eleanor did look lovely at the Shepherd party." "Doesn't she always lopk lovely? Was she always so immaculate?

She rolled a , white bead bracelet up tier forearm, slid it back to ner Wrist. "That is quite an achievement In a town of this sort." Now the faded blue eyes darted a glance at Shelly. "It's quite an achievement anywhere," Shelly answered pleasantly. • "Yes, but In a city where one may become lost in a crowd, one may risk — shall we say ?— the appearance of indiscretion." Shelly swallowed . a brown, sickish taste in her throat.

"In St. Louis, entertaining is done in hotels and at the;-big clubs, your circle of friends Is constantly changing. 5fou don't see your friends so often, and they don't see you . . ." ' (You know nothing about my St. Louis, thought Shelly resentfully. Its Inner core. Its inner circle, Just as you know nothing of we. You've never known me enough even to ask—and you couldn't ever know about my city! Hotels, Indeed! Why—) She sighed, and listened again to what Stephen's mother was saying. Maybe she'd get a chance to say t h e r a, was nP difference— really— ' ". . . but here pur standards are simple and strict, Shelly. Here we know che same people ail our lives, and they know us. The least thing we dp is sigulflcant here In Nor* folk." Her motherrin-iaw'B tone was one ot gentle patience. Just so she might have explained to net little granddaughter that nice little girls did not get their slippers muddy, • .:'•; "We're very proud of pur town," she said to Shelly. "We like to think it Is a small, select community ot people who ftaye set themselves * very nigh standard ot behavior. That sometimes is called snobbishness. It isn't really.

"Oh, I'tn sure you've ijot!" said ay Anna quipkly, She laughed in a tmkly t octal manner, and Shelly pushed tier slipper soles CHAPTER THIRTY TWO •THAT'S pretty hard," said Shelly. "When people are!'determined to think the worst" "Oh, dear," protested the older woman, tucking up ..a' I1 sif3,y lock of hair. "t)oh't you think' 1 people' generally want to be kind?" "No, I'm atraid 1 don't nave such optimism about the Human race. Perhaps you'd better tell me what I've done, or what you've heard .I've done." May Anna blinked. She had rehearsed tier approach, had planned how to make her points in, progressive order. Shelly should not have taken a short cut; she Immediately regretted It. May Anna played with tier bracelet; she touched the matching necklace of woven dead strands at her throat. "The thing is to avoid any chance of talk, Shelly , . .." she said uncertainly. "You mean, 1 should be more careful of what 1 do? Or is it only a matter of being more discreet about when and where I do it ?" "Oh, dear, Shelly, don't take that attitude!" pleaded May Anna in agitation. Had she really expected her victim to sit quietly, listen and say nothing? "Please tell me what you've heard about me." "1 don't listen to gossip . . ." began May Anna. Who does, thought Shelly, and admits it? But she said nothing. "Of course, when close friends speak to me in a tone that shows they are worried about you, dear—" Shelly waited. May Anna laughed a little. "Oh, there wasn't' much said, ot course. Eleanor likes Dr. Talboy. She says he is good company—and she said she expected you thoroughly en- Joyed your hookey-playing." , Shelly's head lifted, "l don't understand . . ." "Isn't the office usually opened on Saturday afternoon?" "No," said Shelly, "it Isn't." "Oh, well, then that was a mistake. But did you two go on a picnic?" "Yes," said Shelly. "Yes, we did. About ten days ago. Craig Had co go to AJlentown; it was a not, summery day—on impulse, he suggested that we take a picnic lunch, and that I go with him. We were home by dark." "Of course ypu were, dear. And \t you don't think U was indiscreet | "Of course not. I meant over Stephen." "Oh, 1 see, .Well, yes—rof course —everyone thought she would marry Stevle." .. .-••.'•: ,"Wag there ever .an e n g a g e- ment? i;m-not being catty. ,'Just curious." "There was an understanding, I'm sure." "1 see." Shelly took a mint from the little covered dish on the table beside her . A gust of wind blew a spatter of rain across the verandah to strike against the window pane. ."Is that the only story you've heard?" "In no case were they really stories, dear. Eleanor just said she irnew you must nave had a good time. And Laura Jarvis—you knosv what good friends we are. She went to your defense, dear, when Ervin Lewis said some catty things about the Medical society meeting you attended. Aft dolled up, was his term. He said you spoke in Dr. Talboy's oehalf." Shelly gasped. "Since I've been to only one meeting, it had to be the time that. poor Mr. Prewett and Mr. Corhfeld spoke in refutation ol the gossip that was going around about Craig's accident." "You didn't apeak that evening'" "Yes, 1 did. But not about Craig. 1 had helped organize a night call service which needed the indorsement of the Medical society. 1 explained it.". "Oh, dear. I got the idea that you had—" "Dolled up to dazzle those doctors into being nice to Craig?" "Shelly, dear—" "I'm sorry, but 1 am upset I did dress carefully that evening. Most any woman wants to appear well before a lot ot men. 1 went to that meeting In Stephen's Interest, Mother Carr. 1 spoke only (or the night call service—though, of course, 1 had Known why Dr. Talboy was hurt the night of Mrs. Armes 1 death. "How did you know that, Shelly?" "It fte«Mwy IP dp Ma y Aiu« cwv tP ride in his carr-and to lie under a tree with him-—" She broke off at a flash in Shelly's eyes. "Eleanor may do that when she goes ou a picnic with Craig," said SheUy hctly, "i wouldn't luipw abput that— i don't watch her as closely as she evidently watches me." "Now, Shelly—" "Look, Mother Carr. I did go on that shprt afternoon picnic with Pr. Talboy. Eleanor saw us in the car together, and it logics as ij- 4l)e followed us to the field where we sat talKlng for a couple pt hours and where we ate our supper. Craig lay on the grass—sp did nia dog. i sat up both to talk and to eat. You can believe Eleanor's deductions, or you can believe my account pf what happened." *Sb,ejiy,» said May jpwHwhiuj 1 -- *""eli. Shelly bit back the sharp rejoinder, "1 wasn't with him!" Instead— "It was on the office record," she said softly, "that ne'd had no sleep tor three nights. Ln Stephen's interest, 1 felt that the truth must be told. The rector and Mr. Cornfeld told it." "Well, I'm glad to get that straightened out. Because Laurp and Dr. Lewis see/ned to think—" "But don't you see that that's the same situation as colored Eleanor's story about the picnic ? Mrs, Jarvis was miffed at me because she thought l refused to send Dr. Talboy tp her on a night call. And, of course, Dr. Lewis nates Craig for all the scandal about his wife's attempted suicide. I meajn, when people don't like you in the Brat place, their stories ahout you— well—sometimes , , ." "Shelly, dea,r," sa}d the older woman patiently, "don't you realise that when so many people disap. prove ot your behavior, they may be right enpugh tfiaj you should be more careful ot what you dp?" How gently M»y Anna spotee! But * silken thread could strangle quite as fatally as a hemp rpwT,. NPW « we* »lt coming out; e family hajl pi 9 k, ?d ; the girl he might have married—even a cheap, vulgar girl—but It had been only a show. That was all nla family had ever planned oh doing. They would mark time until the proper occasion arose to show Stephen the error of his choice— Now, it seemed, that tiine had come. They had their stories, which they would tell Stephen— when he returned—or even write to him— Would theyf Her skin cold, her heart thudding, Shelly . stared at the faded, soft woman in'blue, and wondered if Stephen's mother really would write such things to her son in Korea. Stephen loved May Anna, he would believe her stories because he would be sure this soft- spoken woman would never tell anything but the truth. So Shelly must make Mrs. Carr know that the stories were not true! But how? Oh, what a spot her husband had put her in! He should never have left ner at the mercy of these people! He'd counted on their protecting her, helping her. Instead— She leaned back in her chair, waited for an opening, and then she tried her best to. explain now hard, how very hard, she had been trying to save Stephen's practice tor him. "Stephen didn't realize how things would go," she explained. -"In the first place, I'm sure ne counted on Miss Cobb's slaying In the office." "1 understand Dr. Talboy was very rude to her," "II he was, it's the first rudeness I've ever known him. to commit. Don't you know him at all?" "Yea, dear, I've met him." "Craig himself thinks Stephen should nave let some of the local doctors care for his patients. And, except for'the plant, Stephen might have done that. But, you see, Mother Carr, industrial medicine means specific study and information. Stephen hail studied It, and so naa Dr. Talboy. That's why he brought him here, and that's why I've tried so hard to help him stay here—to carry on Stephen's work." "But maybe you shouldn't, Shelly! Isn't it true,, dear, that he's pretty much of a radical?" Shelly took a deep breath, "He's a brilliant m.an, Mother Carr. He also is honest to'the point of sometimes seeming r u d e. He's convinced that It's not enough .to believe in a thing, one naa to an* nounce his belief and defend It, Naturally, when Craig's belief conflicts with established Ideas, ha gets called a radical." "You do call him by his first name, don't you?" >?es, ot course. He's Stephen's friend" May Anna shook her head, unhappily. "1 wish you hadn't gone into the ptflce,," "/ wtsti Uteptien had never left it, I mean, it's pj-ftty sJUy tp say what we WM/I w&r» true. We nave to the mythological giant who re gained his strength every time he touched the earth Sen. McCarthy seems to gain added confidence after each encounter with the Ei senhower administraton. So far, the comparison ends Ihere. For, while Hercules at last held Antaeus in the air and crush ed him. President Eisenhower has shown no eagerness to rush into a decisive, party-splitting struggle with the Wisconsin Republican. ; Even his statement yesterday on the way he wants McCarthy lo treat generals-bileed in advance in advance by his aides as some thing to watch for was far milder than McCarthy's fast reply 01 what he'd do with generals when he sees fit. Ash Wednesday may be remem bered as the day when Eisenhowei and McCarthy issued a kind of manifesto to each other. But i was merely a day pf talk. Wha they do in the future remains to be seen. If McCarthy follows his tisua pattern, he will do nothing for a while which might prod Eisenhower into a full-scale break. Then after an interval, he'll run headon into the administration again dowi some new avenue. He has had a number of such collissions in the past year. Each was followed by a brief period o: comparative quiet. Then, and al ways from a fresh direction, Me Carthy crashed against the admin istration again, but harder. It's dificult to believe this can continue indefinitely without (1) an explosion or (2) a crushing humiliation for Eisenhower or the senator. It's possible that in a con test with Eisenhower McCarthy may overreach himself. • He's a hard in-fightcr but, nevertheless, yesterday he showed ho can be needled into going further 'then he semed to intend that he can be pushed off 'balance. This was a side of him not seen quite this way before. It could happen ugain. Within one hour alter the President had issued an 800-word statement aimed right at McCarthy, the senator issued a statement of his own, containing this sentence: "Apparently the President and I now agree on the necessity of getting rid of Communists." Since McCarthy had made a career of Communist hunting, this could only mean McCarthy "th~'";ht Eisenhower wasn't against Communists before and only now was reaching that position. McCarthy apparently that with such an implication he had gone too far. He sent word later that kind of interpretation was being put on his language and he wanted to delete the word "now." He had never been under quite the same kind of high-placed pressure before because Eisenhower's statement, the result of a series of events set in motion by McCarthy himself, was being awaited on two continents. The events started with McCarthy's nuestioning of Brig. Gen. Ralph Zwicker about an honorable discharge given Maj. Irving Peress a dentist. McCarthy called Peress a "Fifth Amendment Communist," a charge Peress tevmed "sher posed to their plan to make agricultural price supports less rigi' But they got some tokens a support, too, notably from Chairman Aiken (R-Vl) of the Senate Agriculture Committee, who lauded Secretary of Agriculture Ben 7 son as an "honest man" and said his numerous congressional critics "are talking merely for political purposes and nothing else." Aiken offered in support of his views voluminous charts which, he said, proved that 22 years of aSt sorted farm programs had co* 1 less than 500 million dollars a year. "In my opinion it has been a good investment," he addod. Critical questions of .senators about the chance of farm prices and income dropping lower under the new program took up most cf a lengthy session of tho committee yesterday. True D. Morse, under secretary of agriculture, and Karl Loos, department solicitor, were callt^P back today to explain a lengthy bill introduced by Aiken. It covers main points of the Eisenhower program but Aiken said, "It is not an administration bill." Key point of the Eisenhower proposal is to allow 90 per cent farm supports to expire at tho end of this year in favor of Flexible price prop s at 75 to 90 per cent of ar- mittees. He never said precisely what he'd do if they were. Nevertheless, this was the closest he had come to an open cal- lenge to McCarthy. McCarthy's quick reply was much less reticent about whom he .was talking to and about. He mentioned the President. Eisenhower praised Gen. Zwicker. But McCarthy showed what he thought of this, leaving it up t the President to like it or it with the toughest reply he's ever given Eisenhower: "If a stupid, arrogant or witless man in a position of power appears before our committee and is found aiding the Communist party, he will be exposed. The fant that he might be a general places him in no special clars as far as I am concerned." Next move? It's up to McCarthy. If he pursues his investigation' an|pS> roughs up Army people, he'll be challenging Eisenhower to snap his whip. McCarthy could do as : , t he has done in the past let this case cool off, not forde Eisenhower's nand, try something else Legal Notice LEGAL NOTICE •"••> PROBATE COURT NOTICES nonsense.

Stevens accused McCarthy of abusing Zwicker. McCarthy dispute that. Their disagreement attracted wide attention, There was editorial demand for Eisenhower to take a stand, Ejsenhowier, \vho hadn't Intervened when McCarthy Quizzed other employes ol the government, decided to say something.
