Blue-Ribbon Mink The Federal Trade Commission has ruled that fur coat manufacturers may not advertise their products as being made from "prwe-winnitnf minks" unless it can be proved that they really are. This fine distinction had never occurred to us. We had always supposed that the lady who got the coat, not the animals that went into it, was Hie prizewinner. VIEWS OF OTHERS Heavy Taxes Bring Socialism Osceola Men Provide Security on Home Front Osceola and Mississippi County have real reason for taking pride in the launching of a new Arkansas industry in the form of an oleomargarine factory. During all of the years that Arkansas has been, producing cotton and cottonseed oil, the raw oil has been shipped to the north and east to be refined, processed and sent back in the form of food for man. Times are changing and, except for the refining process, cottonseed from Mississippi County fields now can te converted into a food item in Osceola, .which is situated right in the very heart Of the cotton country. That spells security for Mississippi County which was not possible in the 'years past. It means that production costs for the finished product can be held to levels lower than were possible when the oil had to be shipped away and the finished product shipped back. It means more than a savings in shipping costs for the factory giveg this county an investment which keeps Mississippi County money at home where the profits from the investment can be turned into even greater developments. At the same time the factory is increasing the county's ability to make educational progress by.the simple process of having more wealth to tax to provide better schools to turn out more men to follow in the footsteps of L. C. B. Young of Osceola. He fathered the idea which today takes the form of a $886,000 factory which is the state's first of its kind and the only one operating between St. Louis 'and Dallas. Osceola's factory means more than just saving dollars. It means that more employment is provided for Mississippi County men, and that the dollars they earn in turn provide more business for Osceola, Employment and business and a market for the fruits of the soil spell security which has served to make America the greatest of all nations. When one county can have all three within her borders, that spells good business for all who live in the area. It is more than just good business. It sets an example for other towns and other counties in Arkansas and elsewhere and can serve to give new and greater meaning for free enterprise, v which is .so vital to the future of democratic countries in times like these. i .We have HibveniTM from the home of communism, and socialistically inclined within our own country, who are trying to poison the minds of men and boyi and firlft, aad teach them Vole yourself some more government handouts, aids and boons. This is the political rallying cry In every campaign. It has been growing in audacity and braaenness for more than a dnv.en years. Yet even now millions do not seem to realise what a malignant swindle they arc buying. First of mil, government has no money to give, anybody, except the money It takes from the people. We can get from government only the revenues we pay It In taxes, less the cost of maintaining a horde of bureaucrats, and the waste that flourishes' on huge spending of other people's money. Second, and the deadliest part ot all, Is the (act that heavy taxing, and more and more government regulating and bossing, are n sure rotul to socialism. Almost never is socialism brought In by the socialists themselves. The swap Is marie, as it wa* in most of Europe, by well-meaning liberals In the orthodox parties .with their spending and taxing to "help" the little man. Over and over again, freedom has been de- •troyed to the battle cry of "protecting" the people's freedom. Socialism has been tlte result—let ui think of what It means. It Is the end of a nation's great days. For it kills ambition by wiping out the rewards that a mnn may wln ; under private enterprise, by inventing something new, by doing an old thing better. or taking a. long chance on some risky project. When socialism takes over, there are no more Rockefellers, Edlsons and Fords to enrich life with conveniences and luxuries never heard ol before, to create millions of new jobs, ndcl enormously to the wealth for divestment and to pay taxts, and thus build greater vigor and strength into the nation. This blight on our economic life is whftt we are buying, with our rapacious taxes to provide more government services and regulations. The teat of the trouble Is In Wr.shliijjton, which has set a reckless spending pattern for the states and local governments to follow. And there will be more of the same, with the deadening hand of socialism closing upon us, unless we tell our congressmen to stand against it, Enormous ui.% federal spending is urged. Senator McClellan says It would add 25 billion to the annual cost of the federal government, now rising above 42 billions. Are we going to let the politicians bribe us with our own money to accept the socialistic government which wrecked Europe, and finally made It a charity case for Americans to help back onto Its feet? Either we stop now, or we continue a political Joyrlde with disaster In the next bend. —ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT. Washington News Notebook Pacific Defense Pact Ruled Out But Americans Show Interest Sunday School Lesson By WlUlam K. Gilrojr, D. D. One of the best-known and most Idely used manuals of dally de- otlon Is a little booklet called "The Upper Room." Issued by the Meth- dlsts, It has become well known n other denominations. Its title, erlved from the story of "The Last Supper" of Jesus with His dlscl- iles, emphasizes the sacredness of hat occasion. It stresses communion with God and man as the source of plrltual power, and the Mndlng orce of the fellowship, which John ays is "with the Father, and with His Son Jesus Christ" (I John 1:3). To the Last Supper in the upper room Is related the "Lord's Supper," and communion as the symbol and determining buis of fellowship In the Christian church. This Is marked to such an extent that denominations, or sects, are called "communions," In their very separateness denying the unity that ought to be In Christ. For that, of course there a.s historic • reasons, wb*;h in t. large degree are being overcome by many who in mind, soul, heart and will accept as fellow Christian all who love the Lord, reg.-rdlejs o: barriers of organization and forma creed. But there ought to be ^ en deep er implications of fellowship as w contemplate that Last Supper By DeWHt AP Fonlt* Attain Analyit Thert likely will be «ome heart burning!, but It need be no surprise, because Secretary of ^Mfe Dean Ache«on ha« ruled outsat least for the present-any American participation In a rielflc de- ense pact •imilar to the Atlantic reaty. The conditions on Nhlch the At- antlo alliance li built are quite llfferent from those existing In the irient. The secretary took not* of hat fact when he told a news con- erence In Washington: "While It is true that there «r« serious dangers to world peace exlst- ng in the situation In Asia, is also s true, as prime Minister Nehru of India stated to the press the other day, that a Pacific defense >act could'not take shape until present Internal conflicts in Asia were resolved." In the first place the Atlantic treaty covers a theatre which represents the greatest Immediate threat to the Western democracies. True, the Orient In due course may present an event greater menace— a fact which we most certainly can't Ignore. However, since we already have made a start In Europe, that must be our main Immediate concern. Touch situation Exists Then, too, the Atlantic treaty covers a compact front, presenting a far more formidable deM^w. While many of its members^&e weak militarily, yet by and large 'Off the Record' Means Anything; Johnson Has Troubles With Press WASHINGTON —(NEA>— Pentagon reporters say they have now dentlfleri five kinds of "off the record" remarks by Defense Secret- ry Louis Johnson. 1. "Completly off the record. You can't use nny- ,hlng. Okay boys?" 2. "Off the record, but you can use it If you rton't attribute to any official source " 3. "Off the record, but you can say you got It from a high authority." 4. "Off the record, but yon cnn :ay you learned It from me." 5. 'Off the record.!" Johnson's Press Relations Strained Johnson is having plenty of trouble with his press relations In spite of his efforts to get to know every reporter by name and a series of luncheons with Washington Bureau chiefs. On the stopping 01 construction of Navy super-aircraft carrier, Johnson didn't say ei»->ugh and could easily have made a ^lenient. On appointment of Curtis Calder as secretary, of the Army Johnson said too much. Caltter next day denied he had accepted the job. One cause of trouble-Is that before Johnson's appointment there was hpnvy press editorial crifeism against too much service rivalry and not enough unification. Now that Johnson has moved to end this bickering, reporters don't like It because officers are afraid to talk. AMA Gives Health Insurance Both Barrels :er collections ran into a snag when uvltatlons were sent to Negro doctors, who aren't admitted to District of Columbia Medical Society. Shortly after Defense Secretary Louis Johnson stopped construction on the Navy's super-aircraft carrier. Sen. Arthur H. Vandenberg of One piece of A.M.A. literature now ] Michigan was invited out to dinner. American Medical Association ! watched on ' ' " being left in doctors' offices misses no bets. Tt claims health Insurance was invented by Blsmark, who was a German, was introduced into America by Communists, will lead to Socialism. Comes the Dawn Why reclamation associations fight public power development has always been something of a 'mystery, since the power generated at dams pays the major cost ot Irrigation projects. Partial explanation is given by published financial statement of Washington State Reclamation Afsn. It shows receipts of $3000 dues from its own members and $5350 received from three big private power companies. Hradrd for the Little Black Book Labor union lobbyists in Washington have been checking up on the votes against rent control auti the votes against sending the Wood labor bill back to committee for redrafting. They find much similarity between the two votes. Against re-'t control were «I Republicans and 5' Democrats. Against recommital of the Wood bill were 146 Republicans and 11 Democrats. Names on both lists are being checked and will be le was seated at table next to a woman who Immediately opened up m him with a broadside. "I want you to know who I am," he began. The senator replied that knew who she was, having seen her name on the place card. "But rou idon't know my background," :he woman went on. "I am the wife >f a vice admiral and the daugh- er of an admiral. And on this day of Infamy for the Navy, I think you should do something to this m?.n Ihe upper room. That Last Supper which has become the symbol of faith and fellowship In the Chrls- Uan church, was the celebration of J»sus and His disciples of the Passover, the most sacred rite of the Jewish religion, which was their heritage as jeu - s, and which Jesus said He had not come to destroy, but to fulfill. That fact ought to give the Last Supper i]i the upper room a significance that II has never had either for Jews or Christians, and a meet- Ing place In fellowship that they have never found. Surely the supreme task of all who believe in the Christ and the fellowship of the upper room Is (r> bring to reality and fullness in the world the spirit and the practice of brotherhood there manifested. We know that there was one present, who renounced that spirit, who betrayed his Master. What we do not realize is that everyone who professes to share in that communion, but who does not live in the spirit of love, and in the pre cepts and example of the Master is akin to Judas, rather than to those who loved their Mister, ani who continued in that love desptt the temporary sadness and despal when His death seemed to hav ended their hopes. To pnrtake of holy communto "in remembrance of Jesus" Is no merely an act of conformity, an ex pression of outward faith; Its real ity is found only In a renewed com mitment of the soul to Christ an the Christian war. Tf observurfce o the practice begun In the upoe they are at peace Internally. There no civil war in any of them. The picture in the Orient h far ifferent. Many of the countries In lat huge area are torn by revolu- on—China. Burma. Malaya, In- onesla. Chief of these, of course, ] China with net population of five undred millions. As Secretary .cheson points out, the dangers of .sia are those revolving about the resent conditions of that country. How would you apply a defense iact to such •• hotchpotch of vlo- ence and potential violence? What 'ouldn't Uncle Sam be letting him- el fin for If he signed a mutual de- !| cnsc pact with such an aggrega- lon? It strikes me he likely would 'ind himself In the position of the Libyan wrestler Antaeus of ancient days. Antaeus was the son of Earlh md none could throw him because ie gained fresh strength every time le touched his mother. Along came Hercules, however, and conquered the Libyan by lifting him up so he couldn't touch earth at all. Likewise our Uncle Sam m!cfifl soon find himself hoisted by a iSP- clfic defense pact. So ir.wh for the formal commitment of a defense pact. If America or Britain or any other Western power wants to give material aid to an Asiatic country, that's a different story. Such aid wouldn't have strings on It. A defense pact Is another thing, especially in a vast theatre of turmoil which might produce calls for help from several points at once. apparently Isn't doing as well as expected on getting $25 from every doctor to fight health insurance. It hoped to raise $4,000,000. First quar- for compiling a list of congressmen against whom the unions will cam- pi"n in 1952. Vandenbrrj Introduces Himself Johnson for what he has done in stopping work on the super-carrier." Vandenberg broke In there with, •Wait a minute.

I did not argue with him when he said North should Jump to two spades and that South's next correct bid was three diamonds. I now explained that North would like to know 1 how many aces and kings his partner has. Therefore, the four no trump bid and the response would let him know his partner had two aces. The five no trump bid found out his partner had one king. There was no holding Morey back now. He said he would simply bid seven no trump, which is ice cold.
