One-Fourth of Mankind «««*"•• «• e..,..i« by Den Oakley .and John Laat r tot* never teen a document which eon. taint so much nonsente. —K'ang Hit on iht Butt Ex flla die The first armed clash between the Chtng (Manchu) dynasty and the Russians, who were penetrating and colonizing northern Manchuria, took place in 1652. Repulsed at first, the Chinese later scored successes. In 1889, the Treaty of Nerchinsk was signed, ending a quarter century of undeclared war. It was to hold Russia at bay'for 169 years. Acting as interpreters during the negotiations were missionaries of the Society of Jesus, •who were among the few foreigners Chinese admired. The Jesuits had arrived in China during the Ming and, accomplished Renaissance men, soon made themselves useful. Jesuit-made cannon served the Ming against fiie Manchus; Joannes SchaU -devised 3 cal- endar for the Hanchui: FenHntnd Verbieit built an observatory. If oat famous of these men WM Matteo Ricct, who cam* to Peking in 1001. Realizing that the only hope of converting Chin*'to Christianity was to win over her leaden, he mastered the language and dressed in mandarin garb. Wisely, Ricci drew a map showing China in the center of the world. Wisely, too, he and his successors attempted to accommodate the ancestor worship of Confucianism within Christianity. They were bitterly opposed by the rival Franciscans and Dominicans, who considered such practices idolatry. A long-continuing dispute—the "Rites Controversy"—over this question and over the meaning of the Chinese word Tien, or Heaven, was finally settled by Pope Clement XI in 1715, who issued a papal bull ruling against the Jesuits. This outraged the brilliant Emperor K'ang Hsl in two sensitive areas—his authority in bis own realm and his Confucianism. '1 have concluded that the Westerners are) •man indeed," said the man who had granted an edict of toleration to the Christians in 1692. "From now on Westerners should not be allowed to preach in China, so there will be no trouble." Yet even before the. papal ban on Confucianism (which was not lifted until 1939), Christianity had made little progress in China. The literati were interested in the Westerners' science, not their theology, and the Jesuits had never been able to explain a logical connection between the two. Later, when Christianity was backed up by guns, this disdain turned to hatred. NEXT* Ciiuu 11* Mode /tjootkeet ll->eat — bit max iturm — Thanksgiving has not always been a favorite American holiday, the National Geographic Society says. Thomas Jefferson denounced it as a. Vmonarchial practice" and refused to Observe it. Prior to the Civil War, nany Southerners ignored Thanksgiving as a Yankee cua- :om. Abraham Lincoln revived the holiday and set aside th e ast Thursday of November at a national observance.. The conflict that developed this week in the newly organized Three Rivers Junior College District covering Butler, Carter, Sipley and Wayne counties, will 3e watched with interest by residents of other counties in Southeast Missouri in which the organization of similar districts is >eing considered. According to press reports, a suit has been filed in the Cole bounty Circuit Court, Jefferson City, to block the establishment of the district. In the action the peitioners contend that the State Department of Education order approving the district was "abritrary and capricious." The challenge Is based on the fact that voters in Carter, Ripley and Wayne counties rejected the junior college district proposal by a margin of three to one. The issue was carried by heavy vote in more populous Butler County. The news reports stated that when the idea was first brought up, it received strong support among school leaders in all four counties, but the major opposition developed after Poplar aU ear Lot to Learn, Chum! J&bdl Van Bu .ren (Mctfauiht Syndicate Inc.) «BM««i«™^ later on, you've clearly been cheated, "what Nature's forgotten, stuff with cotton." DEAR ABBY: I hope to marry a nice girl someday, one who doesn't drink or smoke, but while I'm still single, I prefer to date girls who do. Girls who drink and smoke are cheaper to date because they don't mind eating cheap food in a low-class diner. Take them to a cheap dive and give them some drinks and cigarets and they are contented. Also girls who drink and smoke usually lack self respect, so they don't expect a fellow to respect them, and he can usually get away with anything he wants on the first date. I am not a bum, I'm just an average guy, but so many people push the sweet, innocent - type girls, I thought someone should explain why so many men prefer the cheap kind. We don't want to MARRY them, just DATE them. JOHN Q. PUBLIC DEAR JOHN: Speak for yourself, John! The fellow who has dated nothing bat willing women can have his choice of any tramp he's dated when selecting a wife. Men who I'D their shopping at a rummage sale are unlikely to find a jewel from Cartier. DEAR ABBY: We are two girls, both 12, and we each have a different problem. One of us is overweight and the other one is flat. Every day one of us gets insulted about our looks. My girl friend has tried every diet in the book, and she can't lose a pound. And I would like to have a padded bra, but I'm afraid to ask my mother for one. Please don't tell us .we have plenty of time to have good figures. We want them NOW. Answer soon as we are desperate. FATTY AND FLATTY DEAR F AND F: Reading a diet won't lose your friend an ounce ' unless she substitutes READING for EATING. And)as for the bra: a twelve - year • old girl's figure is usually adequate for your age, However, if DEAR ABBY: What would you do if your husband bought you a large bottle of the very same cologne you discarded years ago because he told you he hated it so much? I took it back after Christmas, remembering what he had said about the first bottle. I thought I was doing him a favor, but he said I had done an ungracious thing, and now I am in the doghouse. HURT DEAR HURT: You did what any sensible, considerate, wife would have done. Your husband is a urea- soable man. Invite him into the doghouse and tell him you have a bone to Pick with him. DEAR ABBY: Your column about the amateur handwriting analyst interested me. This person, it seems, analyzed a co - worker's handwriting from an ofice memo, without his consent, and then went around telling everyone that his hand writing revealed that he had "criminal tendencies" and was "over-sexed." Abby, I am a CERTIFIED GRAPHOANALYST, and as such, abide by a strict code of ethics as set down by that society. We NEVER analyze anyone's handwriting without his knowledge and consent, nor do we ever discuss our findings with anyone but the writer. And anyone who does otherwise, is a rank amatuer and a very stupid one at that. M. E. OF PHILA. Problems? Write to Abby, Box 69700, Los Angeles, Cal., 90069. For a personal reply, enclose a stamped, self • addressed envelope. Hate to write letters? Send fl to Abby, Box 69700, Log Angeles, Cal., 90089, for Ab- hy'i booklet, "How to Write etters for All Occasions." Bluff was chosen as the site. A look at a Missouri state map will show in the four-county area of the Three Rivers Junior College, Poplar Bluff lies in the southwest corner — well away from the geographical center of the district. In the movement to have a similar junior college district established in the lower Boothill to cover Pemiscot, Bunklin and part of New Madrid counties, the location of the facility already is an issue. A number of leaders in the region are withholding their full support of the idea until the site is known. On the other hand, Fred Davis, director of the Junior College Division of the State Department qf Education, told the Bootheel people present at a recent mass meeting in Hayti that the choice of a site would rest with the district's board of trustees. This procedure hasn't seemed to satisfy all interested because it could fololw that the establishment of the district have to be voted before the location of the college is mads known. This can work against the Bootheel proposal from the start because some voters will choose to vote no, if they can't find out before the election where it will be built. It would appear that if it is at all possible, the general area in which the proposed Bootheel college would be located: ought to be made known well before any election is held on the plan. The Bootheel area is diffrent from the four-county Three Rivers district in that the entire region is more heavily populated than the Wayne, Ripley and Carter counties, and in addition there is no dominant city to out-vote the rest of the area. In the area proposed for the Bootheel college, the voting power is fairly well distributed. Gene Clark, director of the immunity Betterment Division, Missouri Department o f Rsources and Development, Jefferson City, told members of the Hayti Chamber of Commerce that one way to recognize items and areas of improvement in your own community s to visit a neighboring town and write down everything you see that you think should be mproved there. Then you go jack to your own home town with your eyes more exper- enced to search out where up- Fading should be done. He indicated that unless we do this once in awhile, we are irone to overlook what is needed — not being able to see the woods for the trees. Clark told o! one northern Missouri town which has 11 industries but most of the people working in them do not live in that town. Clark's suggestion for community re - examination in a letterment program makes sense. To carry this idea a step fcrther, however, how about introducing good ole American in- ter - community competition into this procedure and have residents of neighboring towns examine each other, swapping reports (unsigned, of course) on suggested improvements. It would make very delightful hear what Caruthersville residents might have to say about Kennett and Hayti, and vice versus. The idea would be for every community to pick out its favorite rivalling community and swap cold, hard looks — all for the sack of community betterment. (This suggestion we really don't expert to get off the ground.) WARN1NG ORDER In the Chancery Court, Chickasawba District, Mississippi County, Arkansas. George H.
