One of them is ' Judgment. But whether we like it or not, it is icoming. The child at school knows a test is set — he must make ready for it. The man at his bench knows the work must get done, -and on time. All life should help us face the coming verdict. The wise person gets the better of it by setting his own judgment at the close of every day. Life is made up of years, of months, of days. Why Wait for luck or chance which might make an escape possible? GANtTBEAT THE VERDICT. God will allow you to reap only what you have sown. You write your own verdict... God announces % riif. Go, to church every Sunday. Confess your sing to God. Write a clean page. Keep the record clear. Then the verdict will be well with your soul. !S YMhTheOnuth.

Hope CG Joins Ncitl Better Business Group The Hope Chamber of Commerce has become a member of the National Better Business Bureau, New York City, thus making it possible for the Chamber to better serve the community as a whole, Carl A. Bryan, Manager, announcd today. "By becoming a member of the National Bureau, the Hope Chamber of Commerce has joined forces with over 700 Chambers of Commerce throughout the country m the protection of the buying public from fraudulent promotions and •unfair business practices," Mr. Bryan said. "As a member of the Bureau, we will receive monthly bulletins alerting us to the sharp promoters and schemes operating in other sections. In addition, we will have access to the Bureau's files and are entitled to special reports on nny inquiry we make. "While this program is not a cure-all and will not stop all the abuses practiced by a minority who operate on the fringe of bus'.- 1 ness, it will give the comunity greater control over them and provide it with a channel through which investigation and correction can be made." Mr. Bryan emphasized the fact that this program can best serve the community only if the community makes use of it. He urged the buying public to be especially cautious of any proposition which promises "something for nothing." "As with all programs of the Chamber of Commerce, this one can only be successful if we have the cooperation of the community. A check with the Chamber of Commerce may save time, money and worry. It pays to 'investigate before you invest,' ' he said. i NO SCHOOL TODAY — Flames shot 50 to 75 feet Into the air ras five-alarm blaze did $150,000 damage to the''three-story-Travis ,'elementary school in Dallas early Thursday.

Sperry Seeks EndtoPlqnt Picketing , By ARTHUR EVERETT NEW YORKOP) — The Sperry •yroscope Co. today seeks a court- enforced end to mass picketing jid violence at its struck plant at iake Successon Long Island. Mean- ^hile.'its electronics production is h&lted. •.'-.. jTwo successive days of battling between CIO pickets and non strikers left, one man dead of a leart attack, and several injured. A) State Supreme Court hearing scheduled here today on a company petition for an injunction a/gainst the mags picketing. *>Yesterday's renewed ,.-• violence utside the mile-long Sperry plant ed the company to abandon aj] efforts to • keep operating. Non- triking employes were directed to tay home, until further notice. The effect was to' idle all of Sperry's 16,000 employes, including he 9,000 members of the CIO In- ernational Union of Electrical workers 'who struck at midnight Monday in a wage dispute. Besides the big plant at Lake Success, Sperry production plants t Mineola and Lake Ronkonkoma, loth on Long Island, also wera losed. There had been minor dis- urbances at these plants . Small bands of supervisory per onnel kept vigil inside the plants o see that vital manufacturing rocesses and equipment did not eteriorate. It wa's the first crippling strike n Sperry's 45-year history as a hief supplier of electronics equip- lent to the nation's armed forces. The IUE is seeking an 18 cents n hour increase in wages that now average $2 an hour. The company has offered 12 cents spread over three years. Federal mediators hoped in separate talks with the union and the company to set up a joint peace meeting. They reported no progress thus far. Pickets massed 200 to 300 deep at Sperry Gates. Lake Success' 10- man police force has proven helpless to quell the disorders. Nassau County has sent reinforcements to some areas but they admittedly have been insufficient. Sperry Gyroscope, multimillion dollar main division of the Sperry Corp., was founded in 1910 .Its first customer was the U.S. Navy, its first products 'marine Gyrocompasses and later automatic airplane pilots. Later, it began producing for the Army as well as the Navy and the armed forces remain its chief customers. Two thirds of all ships afloat today navigate by means of Sper- rji instruments. With the growth of aviation and the mounting importance of the science of electronics, Speryy stepped up its research and development and now turns out about 200 products.

The campaign will be conducted in conjunction with a nation-wide drive announced- yesterday in Washington. -'Olin S. Godwin, district director of the IRS, said that his' records show that 54 gambling machine tax stamps have be.en sold in Arkansas since last July 1, including five sold this year. Godwin said that there .were -2,807 amusement tax sales since last July 1, and 1952 since Jan. 1, 1955. The amusement tax is $10, Godwin said that he had information that many operators of pin ball machines were paying off on winning comlpintions. "That puts the machine in the category of a gambling device, and makes it subject to the $250 tax," he sid, Godwin said that the owner or operatr of the establishment in which a machine is located is II- ble for the gambling tax — not the person who actually owns the machine. Godwin said that the 1955 federal code, contrary to previous laws, requires that the gambling tax be purchased before the machine may be used as a gambling device. He said that the law previously required only that the tax be paid by the end of the month in which gambling opertipns start- Number 13 Not . Lucky for Him t/ '& DETROIT (#r —Atty. -ary r.
