Venezuela President Remainder of Italian Sabotage i Crews Is Sentenced in Federal Court at Jacksonville Flat Rock Woman , Dies After a Falli BOMBS ON (Hy International News Service) Jacksonville, Fla., May 6.— Sixty Italian seamen today awaited federal sentences after being convicted of sabotage in connection with the recent damaging and seizure of axis ships j in American waters by the United States. Thirty-nine of the seamen, removed from the Italian freighter Ircania when the vessel was seized by tne coast guard March 30, were found guilty by a federal court jury late yesterday after the jurors had deliberated for only a half hour. The other 21, members of the craw aboard the Confidenza, were found guilty last week. Federal Judge Louie W. Strum said he would pass on the t'O seamen after he acts on defense motions to be presented Friday. During the trial the jury heard testimony that the seamen disabled the ship by damaging machinery aboard the boats'. Mrs. Wilson Cochran died at her home near Flat Rock at noon j Monday.

She was born at Dupont, Ind., and was forty-five years of age at the tune of her death. Funeral services will be held at the Flat Rock Methodist church in charge of the Rev. Henry Gordon White.

(IJv lmeru:itimi:i] News Service) , Berlin, May 6.—Nazi planes! flew 125 miles across the eastern] Egyptian border, today's com-1 munique revealed, and attacked i the important coastal city of ] Mersa Matruh, about 300 miles west of the Suez canal. The attack on Mersa Matruh was ony a small part of the fighting in Libya and Egypt yesterday during which Nazi dive- bombers cooperated with German and Italian ground forces in repulsing British counter-attacks from besieged Tobruk. A British armored car attack on, axis-held Sollum in Egypt also was repulsed. Both German and Italian planes cooperated in an attack! on Tobruk harbor which thei British hold. Wilson, S. C., May 6.—Homer L. Lioomis, attorney for 10 Italian seamen on trial on charges of violating the anti-sabotage laws, had admitted in federal district court today that the engines aboard the freighter Val- Jarperosa were destroyed because of fear that the ship would be seized and placed into service to carry munitions to England for use against Italy. The attorney asserted before the jury hearing the trial that the seamen would admit they destroyed the Vallarperosa's engines on orders from an attache of the Italian embassy in Washington.

The great chunk of iron, the core of some comet, is probably 15,000,000 years old, officials said.

GOLDEN TEXT—Train up • ebild ta • the .way be ihould «o; and when he to 'old. ta win not depart tram It—Prorertx 122:8. I The responsibility of the home re- 'garding liquor is primarily that of 'providinf a place for children to [grow up under proper principles (and practice. That means that the .home should be a Christian home, 'where both parents follow Christ in {life as well as profession. Young ! people about to establish a new jhome should give themselves mth- iout reservation to Christ. Those jwho began their home as a Chris• tian home, but who have drifted {through carelessness or unbelief, 'should renew their devotion to Christ America needs many things, but first and foremost stands its need of real Christian homes. 1. Preparing to Meet TempUtiom (Deut 6:4-7). Temptations will come, and when they do it will be too late to prepare a defense against them. We are all j "defense conscious" these days. We ,have seen in the sad events of the last year that there must be adequate preparation in advance it we are to withstand the enemy. That I is doubly true in the-realm of the Imoral and spiritual. We must b'uild ;jnoral fiber and appreciation of spiritual things into the lives of our boys 'and girls from their infancy. How?. • 1. By a Consistent Example (vv. : ;5-6). Only the father (or mother)! who loves- the Lord with all his be- ; ing and who has permitted God's 1 Word to enter into his heart will setj the right example. It is well to know something about child psychology, about the principles of rearing children, etc., but these, without a right relationship to God, are cold and powerless. But let the, parents walk before their children in earnest, Christian living, let them honor God's Word in their lives and in the home, and they will lay the finest foundation for Christian character in their children. 2. By Correct Teaching (v. 7). The parent should make the teaching of God's Word to children a matter of first importance. It is to be expected that the children will be • in church and Sunday school with their parents (notice the word "with"—it's not enough to send i them), but that is not sufficient. ' Blessed and fruitful is that home i life in which the Word of God is a normal and easy topic of conversation, where spiritual things are discussed intelligently and without restraint. Every home can be that kind of a home, if the parents will do what they know they should do about it. II. Standing in the Boar of Temptation (Jer. 35:5-10). As a protest against the heathendom, the intemperance, and corruption of the city life of his day, Jona- dab instructed his house or tribe to live an itinerant life and, above all, not to touch wine. We are not called to imitate In detail their way of living, but rather to learn from them the principles of consistent temperance. 1. Remembrance (vv. 6, 7). Jeremiah was sent to test the Rechabites (not to tempt them to fall) by offer-' ing them wine, but to them it was a real temptation. They met it promptly and without fear, because they had in their hearts and minds the teaching of their "father" Jona- dab. Blessed is the boy or girl who in the lone and trying hour of terap- ! tation is not confused by the nega- 1 tive or unchristian example of parents, but once has a vision of a.God-fearing father and mother, i and a remembrance of their faithful teaching of God's standards of life. 2. Obedience (w. 8-10). Here again is a lesson which must be learned from the tender years of babyhood, but which bears glorious fruit in the days of young manhood .and womanhood. The parent who 'does not tactfully, kindly, but withal, firmly, teach children to -obey has undermined their life in advance. • The Rechabites loyally obeyed the word of their founder, and passed their hour of testing with flying colors. They had his example, they knew his teaching, and life itself had proved to them that, they were in the right way. A closing word. The liquor interests are concerned because-the consumption of beer is rapidly falling off and .because most of their customers are "elderly or middle- aged." They are spending tremendous sums in advertising to "get the beer drinking habit instilled in thousands, almost millions, of young men who-do. not- at present know the taste of beer." That is their avowed aim. Shall they be permitted to put it across? | Not if Christian people will put the ' influence of the American home squarely where it ought to be— against the liquor traffic. VFW APPROVES II (By International News Serrlce) Indianapolis, May 6.—Use of the United States Navy in convoying war materials to Great Britain has the approval of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, Charles L. Hopkins, state commander of the organization, said today. Pointing out that his office had been deluged with calls asking for a statement of the VFW'S position, Hopkins- said that action of the American Legion last week in recommending convoys "coincides with a resolution adopted by the national council of administration of the VFW which met in Chicago last September." . "We do not view the present rush of preparedness with alarm," Hopkins added. "Only by being ready to defend ourselves and American ideals can we hope to perpetuate the principles of democracy."
