Leaders among, organized labor usually are masters ^in'the art, and big business long has vbeen spending millions of dollars to get; its messages across to the groups it vwants to reach. j7;But what have the churches done? And,' they have the greatest of all • caUses to. present—one which will do more than any other to right » topsy turvy world, when churchmen learn to take fullest advantage of their opportunities. •'Activities within the churches, us a .general rule do not makn sensational tiers', and it is seldom that church news ever -is big hews. Rut certainly many things which go unnoticed by the general public, and often unnoticed by a lafgfi bloc of the church members themselves, can news and it need never, be peddled as propaganda. Church news can be put before the public, even with a complete absence °%iSgnjsati|gnaHsm ami like the trickle ofiwat'ev over ;i stone—in time it will gfe results. . RwiDenomintttional schools, when) the ministers of the future are being train- ecTjneedi' and need badly a course in public relations so that the pastors may p^?ent, to best advantage outside their Phils' u, message which can and will bring more and more men and women o&Uttle fuith into the pews with n de- siwfto be more like the Master. SvBut getting them into the pews, or ii||p mere church membership is not entnigh. Ministers must have a message for- those who come to worship, and a Not Form/but Substance Victor Kmmatiuel III witnessed changes in the institution of monarchy .during his 4(5 years on the throne of Italy. He succeeded to the crown in the days of (xiwerful figures like Victoria, Wilhelm, Fraiv/. Josef, Nicholas, and a score of lesser royalty. He departed in a day when kinjfs had ceased to be a significant force in Ku- ro|>c:in history. And in his own inept way he did milch to bring the institution to its low estate, No\v the prediction is that, with him, the niOnni'chy has departed from Huly, and that next mouth's plebiscite will show that llie Italian people, are unwilling to see Victor Kmniaucul's son succeed him. Hut if Italian voters choose a republic over 'the monarchy, it will not necessarily follow that they are choosing democracy over fascism. In almost every case, the monarchies that passed from the scene during Victor KniniauueTs reitcii wore replaced by dictatorships of one sort or another. The monarchies which remain today offer the most clear-cut examples of democracy in lOurope. What the weary, confused, faction- ridden people of Huly must find is a government which represents the popular will and encourages unity as a prelude to reconstruction. Whether they can find it ill spite of their bitter partisan feeling is a (jiiustion whose answer is vital to their national existence and, to a considerable extent, to world peace. How iViey find it, through president, parliament, or king, is of secondary imjiortaiice. 'Nice Place Here, Care If I Move In?'

Agnes kept looking at IJebby, and smiling, picturing her as she was going to be — with some jodd clothes and a hat like Agnes had seen jn last Sunday's rolo- gravute section, and maybe a permanent, -and perhaps just a toui{i"6f lipstick. They turned off the road Into the Kendalls' driveway. It ran through a neatly trimmed grove of pines and came out into llie yard in front ot the garage doors. The garage was for two cars, and it was attached to the kitchen.

She came and looked. "Pretty ice, eh?" "Boy!" said Ellie. * » * PHERE was a bedroom beside the bath, and Agnes went in nd looked around. The furnitun ere was not covered, except for he mattress on the wide bed vhtch was wrapped in paper. But vhat caught Agnes' eye was the dressing table. "Debby," she •ailed. Debby came and stood in the doorway. "This must have been Frances Kendall's room." Debby looked aronnd calmly 'Probably," she said. "It'll be the one you'll have,' shingles and ever shrubs all across Hi front and gardens on each sid of the porch. 9f '.flit liftie John got arouhc. to opening the frtnt door, AgneS h*d **61d*d »hc was going to ten Oihouse, even If it took all th ' tttMMnd and more too stood aside to let her Ibe ilepped through the door her blankly "You're no rehtin* thi Why said Agnes.

Debby's eyes clouded, but they :i''l stared resolutely inlo hers, fines realized more than ever ow badly she had been hurt. "Ho on't know what he thinks," 'ebby said gruffly. "I don't care he docs come back or if he oesn't." "Neither do I," Agnes said lilhely. "But let me tell yon this: ic next time somebody like him omes along, he's going to find lings different in the Daniels amily.

How do yon do, Mrs. Danels?" J!e turned and smiled at Debby nd said, "How do you do, Miss Weeks?" Agnes thought, "Boy, this man goes around asking for trouble," ind she watched Debby. Debby was laughing. "How <lo you do, Mr. Newkirk," she said. The expression on her face is she smiled np at him was hard-boiled, and bold. Agnes was aghast; she didn't know Debby could look like that, and it made her feel panicky, as though things were gelling beyond her control. Mr. Newkirk didn't seem to bo able lo take his eyes oft Debby's face, and he was halt smiling. Agnes wished he hadn't come. Slowly he tvirncd to ElHc. "I came, Ellic, to remind you that you have to make out a claim for. the insurance and'aerVd it in as soon as you can. I'll b« glad to help you make It out if you me to." (To BY 1'K'l'KK F.I>SON Nlw\ Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON, May 11. (NBA) — The fundamental trouble wilh the. labor situation today, says Donald R. Hlchucrg, one of the founcllns; fathers of the Railway Labor Law. is that there is no firm support of the public interest by any of the three branches of government. Hichbcrg's inference is that when government, makes itself into :i illshrag It cleans up nothing, even lough it does a lot of sloshing round in the sink. From 'the executive branch of he government there has come no isclplinary leadership in \jostwu 1 .' abor crises. Hichberg explains. From he legislative there hns come no nw which would turn the title away rom labor domination of govcrn- nent. From the courts there has ome only a scries of decisions ex- ending the immunities of labar >rganiy,ations from responsibility to he general public. This public, says Ulclibcrg. is •cally the only interest that has my rights in a labor dispute. All lie talk about labor's lights is greatly exaggerated, and the same s true of Hie harping upon the rights of management. Yet, because it Is iwlllically expedient lo caler lo powerful pressure groups, the larger public interest is ignored. The Donald Richberg who uses this strong language is n 65-ycnv- old Washington lajAver who In 40 years of practice has represented labor, management, government, and the public in many industrial battles. He helped frame the Nationa Industrial Recovery Act in 1933 and was NTRA counsel and Number Two man. This made him somelhing of a New Dealer in those days, though as a younng man around Chicago lie was considered a Progressive. KIOIIllF.ltG STUMPS FOll HAI.I.-HIJRTON-HATCII KILL In the past year Rlchberg hns pill in a great deal of time drafting iin<] then speaking aronnd the coon- iry ill support of the Ball-I3nrton- Hatch bill lo amend the Wagiwr Labor Relations law. This B.-B.-H. bill has been bitterly denounced labor, and at • present writing it may have little chance ol passage. Some of its philosophy may be incorporated in amendment to Ihe Case bill to regulate Industrie relations, now before congress. U that happens, a few more ol the Richberg ideas may have a rliance for practical test. Tvhc underlying troub'ip today. Richberg believes, is that there been no effort lo make a morpl legal issue of right and wronu in labor relations. All that has been done is to give labor loo many classes of people who feel justified in using their powers to f^iin their own ends. Hichbcrg docs not limit this to \rvbor lenders alone.
