Only the Beginning The World War II peace conference, which so often has seemed so impossibly remote, is finally scheduled. Thus the first big step toward ol'fficial peace and recovery is about to be made. But there is every likelihood that this will be only one step on a long and difficult journey. In our own country's history, there are two rather discouraginjr precedents. The Revolutionary War, which ended for all practical purposes with Cornwallis' surrender in October, 1781, did not come to n formal end until January, ITS'l. In World War I, Congress did not ratify the. peace treaties with Germany and Austria until almost three years after Armistice Day—Oct. 18, 1921, to be exaxct. The problems confronting the forthcoming conference may not be the most complicated territorially. But it is unlikely that the chief powers at a peace table have ever been more con- tentius, even though the history of military alliances shows that they tend to break up rapidly once their common enemy is defeated. '. Tims it would seem that the spectators awaiting the beginning of the postwar era of signed and sealed peace woulci be wise to bring their lunches arid their eampstools, and prepare 1'or a good long wait. mid that a Christian especially should be alert to express his Christian collections every lime an occasion arises to cast 8 ballot or take « stand on uny public Issue. 'Ihe Christian lias an Inescapable duly en election day to expxrcss his convictions In all mailers where Christian principles arc Involved. A vole for righteousness Is the Christian's obligation lo his God and lo hts country, ns well us lo himself. We often complain of bad government aud corrupt politics. Eul what is govcnuncnt 1" America, except the will of (he people? TU* trouble comes In Hint loo many ol us do not vote, and sllll olhcrs cast ballots without study nnd conviction.

Really, the future of our communities and of our state will be determined by the way we mark—or fail to mark—the ballot Intended for us. Good government depends on tlie Christian citizens of a community.

But somehow the term took on new meaning when we saw thai they are wanted for income tax evasion as well as for planning the mass slaughter of millions. As Al Cajione would probably be glad to tell them, out of the depths of his experience, a gangster can sometimes blame murder on some of his hired thugs, but that income tax rap is really a tough one to beat. * Views of Others * A preacher friend said to me the other day: "Every Christian should be a politician." He went on to explain that good government, is the concern of every jjersn in a democracy, Unless the voter feels that, he understands his .government, he cannot have .a sense of ownership in It. Unless he lias n sense of ownership in 11 lift cannot control it Unless he can control It ttiere Is no democracy.—Dr. Harold W.

LUCY AGNES HANCOCK T^HE two girls entered Sally's room and Norma turned down the covers of her bed and lowered the shades, while Sally sat before her dressing table and thoflght what a simpleton she had been to make such a spectacle of herself. • "There," Norma said patting the pillow.

"Why— Why couldn't it have always been like this? Why have you hated me—" i And Norma slipped to the floor beside Sally's chair and buried her head in her lap. *'I've never hated you," she sobbed. "I was just jealous. You had everything I—I wanted and—and—I—I nothing." f "Everything, Norma?" Sally asked. "What dp you mean?" I "You're beauliful—you're goo< •nd—and popular. Sundcrlin fa von you.

And Sally appre- .atcd it too. Richard Gregory was due In intonvillc soon after the Fourth nd Sally wondered it his visit ad anything to do with Blair :am1cld's proposed advent. As :ie time approached she grew in- reasingly nervous. Suppose news f Blair Canfield's coming should tlon roo-n of the nurses' home. "You've thin, S«lly," he slid 1 , "and pale. Have you been worrying over Canfield's coming here?" "What do you think?" J:a!ly asked. • » • T.TE smiled into her troubled eyes. "No sense in that," he said. "T'vc found out that he's been ordered back to the Pacific. Winninj; the war seems to be more important just now than acquiring medals, and I, for one, am ylad. Now you look more like yourself, my dear," ns Sally ullered a sigh of relief. "Color good, eyes bright and even a smile for me. Carolyn wrote me that you and that fine Doctor Jim Hallock had apparently come to your senses. Allow me lo wish you every happincs:', Sally. You deserve it." "Oh, I don't, Dick," Sally whispered, her voice choked. "Well, anyway, it's yours, my dear, and take my advice and guard it with your life. It's precious. 'Byo for now." And Sally's heart sang as she went back to her duties in Women's Surgical, which, as usual, Wi:s lied to capacity. "Has someone left you a fov- une, Miss Maynard?" asked micl- le-aged Mrs. Carson, a Nurse's Aide, just now acting as floor nurse. "H must be a big one fro.n ho stars In your eyes." "No fortune, Mrs. Carson," Sally aroled. "Just grand news—won- lorful news and I'm terribly hn)>- BY PETER EDSON I NEA U'adiiniUim Correspondent ! WASHINGTON, July 25. (NEA) Hnrry Bridges. Joe Cm-ran, John' L. Lewis, Phil Murray, Walter RCU-, ther, A. P. Whitney, and the other ; big leaders of recent strikes shouli; be ' compelled to go to Yule University. Up at Yale, it seems, thej have what they call an Institute o» human Relations. In this 1. of II. R. Is a Labor and Management. Center. Directing the L. and M. C. is a professor named E. Wight Bakke. Now this Dr. Bakke 1ms just volvcd what' he calls n "Tentative Theory of Adaptive Behavior" vhich, according to him, will prc- ent serious disputes and promote harmony In labor relations, if understood urcperly. The calch is. usl try to understand it. Of all the professional gobblctlygook ever aid out, this wins the double banana-split with cherries and nuts. Dr. Bakke's hypothesis is slated n n course of nine holes, or "propositions." n.s he calls them. They're too long to reprint in full here, but few sample quotes nnti pitch- shots will give you tile drill. Remember, this Is a couvse in how to prevent strikes. "Proposition 1 -Individuals act within a structure of living composed of goals, personal resources, the framework and resources ol Ihe .society in which they live, and routine behavior. The first ttlree elements place heavy compulsion upon the fourth." Isn't that ducky? You w;int to kno\v whnt makes Phil Murray and lien Fairless behave the way they do. and the professor tells you that their routine behavior is coin- pulsed by Ihc framework of their society. Having mastered this lesson, you may proceed to the next tee. JO15S Sl'EM/ SATISFACTION. HE KQim.mKUJMIZES "Proposition 2—Normally Ihis structure of living Is in a .'late of equilibrium." Whnl the professor apparently means here is that when people hav^ good jobs, they're satisfied. He merely Rays tilings the way he does to make them seem hard. But now he gives you his oi\-tlie-other- hand "Proposition 7 From Ihe rostc of alternative suggestions those experimental actions or response" iir e made which appear most likely to re-establish equilibrium b) direct methods io exploit opi>- • Uniitles, reduce inadequacies, re- store consistency, remove threats, resoh'g conflicts; or by indirec, methods." You .said it. Professor. "Proposition 8—If expei'imenta action is rewarding, it tends to b perpetuated. If it is punishing, I tends to be discarded. Proposition 8—If the cxp:rlmen tnl action is punishing, another al ternative response is tried, unt: one is found which in practice i rewarding."

John iv.orieled the hand. A msn- nequin company saw il, gave him a Job. The hairdress on one of his mannequins—copied from n Roman sinluc lie remembered from his museum days—a (tract ed the attention of a New York hairstylist. He gave him a job. "For live years," said John, "1 was Marie—the No. I creator of iiair styles. I created the reverse curl, the downsweep, and the upsweep." .'. Hair styling led to costume designing and makeup. He applied character makeup uii himself, started playing roles in New York little theaters. Mcvle dramatic coach Oliver Hinrtell thought he should come to Hollywood. John came. He recorded n song. A big radio network exceulive heard it. gave him two sustaining coast-to-coast, radio shews. Mario had become John Lau- roiuaiitic singer and mi vie pprar in the Untonville Chron- cle. What could she say? There vas nlways the truth, of course. She could tell those, interested that ic was not the Blair Canflcld she had known. But she doubted If she could carry off U» explanation calmly and convincingly Blair Canfteld was by no means a common name. How had it come so glibly to her tongue?

"Proposition 4—The introduction of any new force or factor into tlie lives of individuals creates a disqnililmum in their structure ot living."
