IBJ 1 (Continued from Pngf One) post parade ground, cheered as the President cut an anniversa- " rv cake and told them the only reason tor U.S. involvement in • Vietnam is to help that small nation defend itself from ag- j gressors. "You and I know," he told them, "that it is harder and tougher to ask for and achieve a restrained and limited victory. One could surrender— or start World War III— and do either without much help." ; . The only hope for honor, freedom and true peace, he said, lies in the "hard and true course between . surrender and annihilation." This course, he said, ."is the. one we must steer." Earlier, in -Ft. Benning, Johnson noting 1,200 families of men serving in Vietnam live hi the area, declared, that for them and other families of Americans in Vietnam, the war is "no academic question. It is not a topic for cocktail parties, office arguments or debate from the comfort of distant sidelines." "These Americans do not live on the sidelines. Thefr lives are tied by flesh and blood to Vietnam. Talk does not come cheap for them. The cost of duty is too cruel. The price of patriotism comes too high." At Pendelton the President and his party boarded helicopters which .took them to the flight deck of the nuclear-powered carrier Enterprise, the world's biggest warship. With Defense Secretary Rob ert S. McNamara at his side, he toured the ship, chatted with its men and watched day and nigh air operations from its decks. In his Atlantic to Pacific trip his first real barnstorming ef fort of the year, the President assumed a fighting stance Some saw his tough words as an effort to convince voters that his is the only policy that will sue ceed in Vietnam. At- Ft. Benning he askee Americans to erect a wall o wartime unity against an enemy "who will shatter against it." Soon, he predicted, Ft. Ben ning-and the nation will cele brate the end of the war. "Got grant that we may share in tha blessed day soon."

His department orders a re- lective material — with the ,ame of the street already im- Drinled on it— and the reflec- ive substance then is baked on a bare aluminum sheet, producing the sign. "We could make the entire hing ourselves, but it would ost three times as much," ord said. All the city's stop signs are reduced with the city ma- liine, he said. • "I think it's utterly ridiculous hat the police officials allow news reporters to filter through heir accident records and al- ow them to print the names and ages of persons involved in minor accidents. "This certainly can't be any or doing this " — A Citizen, of the general public's business, so what is the excuse for doing this" — A Citizen, City. The city police department exists to serve and protect the lublic. One way or the other — hrough fines or taxes — the mbiic pays the bill for what he police do. This being true, the Courier News tries to give its readers as complete a picture as possi )le of how effectively or inef Actively the police departmen 'unctions. On the whole police official are cooperative. Several years ago we asket for permission to examine tra! fie reports and our request wa granted. Recently we revised our meth od of reporting minor traffic accidents. Instead of listing al accidents, we now print only those in which charges ar filed and-or where an injury lias occurred. • "It beats me why anyone would take a little black kitten from someone else's yard op. Halloween night. A family of five was very fond of him." — Mrs F B, City. It beats me, too. Have you checked the city dog pound? Recently somebody "stole" my little girl's pooch and the rascal turned up at the pound. • "It beats me why the city spends so much paving streets where there are no homes ... even dead-end streets without a stogie home on them, such as one off Ash. "Yet, take, for example, Missouri between 1st and 2nd. There are not only ruts but holes a foot deep. I am sure these people pay their share for the so-called "Improvement Project." — Hopeful, City. . A very common mistake made when talking about street work is to confuse a city project with an Urban Renewal project. The work on Ash to which you refer was done by UR. The dead-end street to which you refer is 8th. When concrete for the street was poured it was not a dead- end street. It led to a compress. Since then the street has been cut off by putting up a fence for a little league baseball field. As far as the city paving dead-end streets in an improvement district, I checked with the mayor. Little says every street within the boundaries of a project — which is organized by the property owners in that area — must be paved. That is why the project is formed. Money to finance the work is obtained in the following way: The city pays half. Property owners on the street pay one- fourth. (Your neighbor, directly across the street, pays -his one-fourth, making up the other one-half the cost.) Property owners can pay their half by having it added to their property taxes over a 20- year period. The average yearly cost from $4 to $6, according to Little. So just because a person pays taxes doesn't mean he's paying for work done in an improve, ment district. The district has to be organized by the property owners in the area where they want the work done. Little says the number of improvement districts either organized or in the planning stage are becoming so numerous the city may not be able to get to all of them next year. However, all this Information doesn't explain why a paved street — such as the one you mention — is allowed to go to B nenry iviggs Henry Riggs, 62, died Thurs- • ay at Hie Parkview Manor - \ursing. home after a long ill- [ ess.

FUTURE PUNISHMENT Future punishment for the grievous sins committed in this life is admitted by all who accept the authority of the Word of God. As to ihe nature anri duration ot this punishment thsre is a wide difference of opinion. There are few indeed who know that the teaching of orthodox theology- was manufactured by theologians and is not based upon facts concerning this doctrine that are found in the Bible. The time for a restudy of what the inspired Book has to say about this subject is long past due. John Stuart Mill, the famous English philosopher, once remarked that when compared with the doctrine of endless torment any other objection to Christianity sinks into insignificance. These words were spoken at a time when all Christians believed in, what they called "hell" on principle and enjoyed describing it in terras as grisly and crude as they could manufacture. "Eternal conscious torment" are (he words generally used to state the position of church theology on the nature and duration of future punishment. If these words express the mind of God, they are well and good; but if they do not, they are a slander against the truth and should be abandoned. A Biblical belief in the nature and duration of future punishment should come about as follows: The New testament should be read carefully and every passage that has any possible bearing upon this subject should be carefully noted. The translation of these passages should be checked against the original Greek to make sure we are considering what God. said rather than some .incorrect version. Then an honest interpretation or understanding oi what God meant by what He said must be arrived at. All prejudices and preconceptions must be put aside at the start. It is only by following such a course that one can arrive at the truth set forth in the pages of God's Book. In times past many Christian men proclaimed some very coarse a,nd crude ideas concerning future punishment. These ideas were so repugnant that compassionate men rejected the idw that "the miser would have molten gold poured down his throat," or that "the damned shall be packed like brick .in a kiln, and be so bound that they cannot move a limb, nor even an eyelid; and while thus fixed the Almighty • shall blow the fires of hell through them forever." Such coarse and revolting ideas hivi been abandoned by most Christians, but very few have any nil Biblical Ideas to take their place. Otis Q.
