The government, general commodities, teaching are fine outlets By EDDY GILMORE LONDON (AP) - In England, too many thieves are going to church. The trouble is they're going for material gain, not spiritual. Within the last 12 months 1,500 churches have been robbed. Some of them have been ransacked and pillaged. Church thefts include 200 pain of candlesticks, most of them old and highly valuable. Sometimes the thlevM — the petty ones — just raid the poor boxes. In other eases, chalices worth $14,000 have been stolen Lead is a favorite loot. Great chunks of it have been rippec from roofs. In the black market, lead brings fancy prices. One church lost its gate. Another's bells were stolen. Nothing is sacred. The altars, with their beautiful crosses, some centuries old, are often targets. The favorites are Anglican and Roman Catholic churches, for they are older and their trappings more ornate. is priceless. Melted night be worth $5,000.

We aren't "engaged" or anything like that, but we sort of have an understanding. Howie never lets me know when he's going to take me out. He just drops in and expects me to be sitting home waiting for him. And I always am. I've even turned down other dates to wait for Howie. How can I break him of this habit? When I ask him to please telephone in advance he says he doesn't like to use the phone. ALWAYS AVAILABLE DEAR AVAILABLE: If Howie knows you're always available, why should be bother to call? When be tells you he does not like to use the phone, tell him YOU don't like to use the crystal ball, either. And the next time he drops in, manage to be "out." If you lose him, you lose him. Life with the likes of Howie doesn't sound too peachy to me. DEAR ABBY: My wife's parents live in a town 30 miles away. We see them often and talk to them on the phone a couple of times a week. All is congenial. The problem: Perhaps twice a year her folks will call just as we are sitting down to dinner. Tonight I had served up a two-inch filet mignon with all the trimmings, something we can't afford any more often than most people. Just as we picked up our forks, the phone rang. Her folks, No emergency. Just a routine yak session. I say my wife should tell mamma we just sat down to dinner and she would call her back. The "long distance" for 30 miles away is about 25 cents. (The price per ounce for our dinner.) The wife says she wouldn't "insult" her mother that way. This has caused some real battles. What is your opinion' HUNGRY DEAR HUNGRY: Why get so steamed up over something that happen j only twice a year? If the in-laws call during your dinner hour go ahead and eat, and if Many small parish churches in England possess treasdres that would cost thousands ol dollars to replace. Yet the doors are nearly always open. Those in charge of the churches do not want to hide their treasures. They want the members of the congregation to see them and enjoy them. Yet, this is getting very costly. Churches near main roads are vandalized more than those on country lanes. Police say the thieves prefer the churches near the highways because they can make a quick getaway. Many churches have vergers and these keep watch, but they cannot be on duty around the clock. Even the cathedrals, with arge staffs, are being burglarized. A silver wafer box used for communion was stolen from St. Paul's in the very .heart of London. The box was valued at $280. _ j; _ r _ _ _ „„.„Coinsurance companies have I of the first transcontinental rail- es bombed the Japanese islands IRead Courier News Classifieds'! warned the churches to be more careful of their treasures.

At the end of the dynasty, in 1644, Europe teas already in possession of modem science and equipment, whereas China was ttUl in tha UictOeAges. — Sent Grousset Outing the reign of the Olid Ming emperor, known as Yung,Lo, something unprecedented in China's history occurred. The Chinese turned to seafaring exploits. Under the command of Cheng Ho, "the Chinese Columbus," fleets of great junks- some over 500 feet long, with watertight com* partments and carrying 1,000 men—sailed the South Seas and as far west as Africa. • But this epoch was short-lived. The voyages were carried out more for reason* of prestig« than for exploration or trade. The self* sufficient, self-centered Chinese soon revert* ed to their traditional isolationism, and we can only speculate on what turn history might have taken had they and not the Portuguese found a route around the tip of Africa. Under Yung Ixj, also, the Chinese monarchy became more and more absolutistic and, behind the walls of the "Forbidden City" whicb the-Ming erected in Peking, more and more temote from the life of the common people. Such' unheard-of practices as the public flogging of officials-were instituted. Creative endeavor was restricted merely to refining the ideas and methods originated in former times. The Ming could no more escape the "cycle of dynasty"—moving from strong, vigorous rule at the beginning to corruption and ineffectiveness at the end— than could any previous dynasty. Famine touched off peasant rebellions in the 17th century and rebel armies I began ravaging the countryside—classic signsv that the dynasty was losing heaven's favor. Out of the. north came a new menace to fake advantage of this situation — the Man- chus, whose tribal ancestors the Chinese had fought many times in previous centuries: Aided by disaffected Chinese generals, tha Manchus captured Peking in 1644 and for thai second time, foreigners ruled China. Another new force had also begun to maka itself felt during the Ming. In 1517, the first Portuguese seeking trade arrived in Canton. By land, a people called the Russians were pressing into northern Manchuria. Only eight years after they, seized the Dragon Throne, the Manchus faced armed conflict with these) white-faced invaders of their own homeland. NEXT: Christ n. Confodut here upon maturity. The field of acting is also good, since the charm is considerable and the imagination very vivid. your wife wants to let her dinner get cold, that's her privilege. DEAR ABBY: I recently got involved in juvenile court and I have a question. Of all the social workers I have met, not one of them is married. I don't see how they can tell parents how to raise children when they have never had the experience of raising any thmselves. I suppose they think they can raise a child by the book? Sure, there may be parts that help, b ' they say that experience is the best teacher. My father is 47 and he has raised five children. I am the only one who has ever been in trouble and my father hasn't read a book since seventh grade, and that over over 30 years ago. He raised us ac- cording to what he thought best. So I think he's done a pretty good job, don't you? If you can tell me how those social workers can tell kids how to stay out of trouble without having any of their own I will be satisfied. Thank you. IN TROUBLE DEAR IN: "Experience" may be the best teacher, but fortunately it's not the ONLY teacher." We can learn a great deal from reading about the experiences of others. Only a fool would in- sist on experiencing every evil in the /orld in order to be convinced of the consequences. Social workers don't attempt to "raise" children, they only try to encourage them to develop into their best selves. Problems? Write to Abby, Box 69700, Los Angeles, Cai., 90069.
