"FJcnealh its benefits," Bradley, said, "this program conceals opportunities for exploitation. It was created to sustain the veteran during his period of occupational training. It was not, designed to provide him a bonus. And it, was not planned to subsidize his labor for industry. Hradlcy said he had offered to lend personnel to the states and .

The governors Introduced the labor question yesterday when the resolutions committee wns given a suggested draft saying that labor, was referred to a sub-committee headed by Cov. Lester C.

Gregg Cherry, North Carolina Democrat, reported that farmers expect farm parity subsidy payments to be continued. Oov. John c.

Many people miss the full slg-' niflcancc of the earthly lite of Jesus through a failure to grasp with realism th 0 fact of His humanity. To any such who read these words. I would emphasize that the significance of Christ's divinity Is lhal it was revealed in Ills human life. As John says, "The Word wns made flesh." Thc great fact to emphasi/.,, is the Incarnation. The Incarnation means that Jesus was both divine nnd human. Both the human and the divine in Jesus are made very real In the story of His friendship with Martha nnd Mary, »t Bethany, and with their brother Lazarus. We see Jesus in tlic friendly contacts of that Bethany home, n welcome guest, accepting the kindness nnd hospitality like any man in need of companionship and comfort, but giving more than H c received. We sec Him entering into the life of the home, observing the rivalry, or the conflict of tempera-' incuts, between the two sisters; mildly rebuking Martha for her complaint nljout Mary's not hclni"': her with the work, overcome with human emotion as He finds the sislcrt; weeping over the death of Lazarus. What humanity in that shortest of all verses in the Bible, "Jesus wept"! what divinity in the recorded miracle of His restoring Lazarus to life! Tlie scriptural passage assigned for this lesson from Mark 14 tells of all Incident at Bethany, but In another home—the home of Simon the Leper. John 12:1-3 tells of a somewhat similar Incident in the home of Martha, when Mary anointed th c feet of Jesus. The similarity of these Incidents does not justify the supposition that some have made. There Is no clear indication that the woman mentioned in Mink's account' was Mary of Bethany, though the dinner occurred In that village. In fact, If Mary uas the woman It seems strange that she should not have been specifically named. There, is plenty In the narrative of (lie friendship of Jesus with Martha, Mary, and Lnv.arus t<> occupy <iiir solid Interest without our needing to Indulge In si>ceuli\- lion. The ar,c-o)d debate concerning the characters of [he two sisters and thf, justification of the one or the other, Is not very profitable. I'llhei 1 . There will always be Marthas and Marys, and Ihn church and Ihe world need both types. Thc Marthas may complain, but they wouldn't bu happy If they weren't .wrvini;; and Mary of Bethany is a constant reminder ,11ml (here is something WytiiM than the satisfaction of material needs. H is not enough merely to serve Ihc Master: we must nlso listen to Ills words and seek His guidance. Seaman's Strike Threat Increases Walkout of 200,000 Would Tie Up Ships On East, West Coasts.

It really is peanuts, isn't it—compared to most other items in your family budget ?j , ' /While the cost of most things climbed through the years—the price of electric service kept right on going down. Even in wartime, when practically all prices popped up, electricity actually became a few peanuts cheaper. '' As a matter of fact, the average American family gets twice as much electricity for its money today as it did 20 years agol All of this goes to prove an important point. Sound business management—and experienced employees—together have given the American people dependable, low-priced electric service—the best, and the most in the world! You'll enjoy that service even more in the electric years ahead. • Uxjy "THE ELECTRIC HOUR" with Robert ArmbruHtr's Orchtitrj. Ettrj Sm&iv nflermtn, 4!& t EaiHTH D*) light Time, CBS Nilutrt.
