Meditation We all with xinyelled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being changed into His likeness—2nd Corinthians 3:1«. • • • Cicero said that coninnplation of the celes- tl»l things win make a man both speak mid think more sublimely. Silver Lining It can't be denied thai there is :\ great spate/of disagreements, vcxinjr problems, and general woe in the news these days. But just to prove Hint the daily dispatches don't reveal a world rushing headlong to the dogs, wo should like to submit the following encourair ing items: ' The best-selling novel in this country today is Laura Z. Kobson's book about social anti-seinitism called "Gentleman's Agreement." It's a book that actually makes the reader think, and which is bound to make a lot of them feel ashamed. "Life With Father,"'as pleasnn!, find amusing a play as you could ask to see, broke the record for the continuous run of an American play so long held by that' tawdry little item, "Tobacco Road," And Finland has paid anoUiei 1 installment on her World War [ debt. The Jpb in Greece political policy, as well ns American financial aid, seema to be making some impression in Greece. Reports from Athens statethatgovermnant leaders are Baking. pains to squelch the extreme rightists among their supporters and -to create the notion that those at the governmental helm are actually middle-of-the-roaders. Then, too, there is the agreotrwnt by which American experts, slatione'l in the Greek Cabinet department's, will keep track of tho use lo which every dollar of the American loan is spent. If the stories of the way some of the British aid to Greece was used :u'o true, this agreement is highly important. One of the first things that could happen, as the Truman Doctrine gets its first practicaj application, would be for the funds to be used for political purposes in supporting a government which is neither wholly representative of the Greek people nor a model of democratic monarchy. It remains to be seen 'whether tho Greek government lias undertaken a suppression of its far-right extremists. But at any rate the government's obvious desire to look its moat democratic indicates that the arrival of American dollars and American representatives has produced a slight change of heart. And that is encouraging. Much more encouraging would be the news that Greece is to liold now elections. This is not an immediate possibility. But even the promise of elections might help to quiet unrest and restore civil order. Evidently' Greek affairs are in a s much of a mess as ever. The civil war goes on. The Communists control the fcAM, which, politically, is U, e m]y plA.ce for anti-government Greeks to KO unless they want to stay at home Even the discussion of admittedly needed administrative reforms in th* government has been put off until autumn. ; Economically, American aid can help Greece to her feet. Politically, : there Doesn't seem much hope until the civil war is ended, its foreign instiga- .tora driven out, and a representative government elected. This also scums to be a part of America's job in Greece. if the Trwnan Doctrine is to confound JU, critics by doing what it set out to BI/rTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NKWB do. The announcement of new electioro should come from the Greek government alone. But American insistence should legitimately be behind it. And the American government should take- some responsibility for the honesty of (liose elections. This would not be interference or imperialism. Kalhor, it would ho an effort to insure "free and unfettered elections" which the Potsdam Declaration decreed for Poland, but which didn't come off. VIEWS OF OTHERS More Light on Communist Tactics In Hungary we are seeing newi'i the beau- liful spirit of communistic "democracy." which our reds and rod sympathizers hi this country regard with such misty-eyed admiration.. The Hussian kingpins, who engineered the communist grub in Hungary, said they had a "confession" from one Bela Kovacs, which Implicated the ousted Hungarian premier, Fereuc Nagy, in a plot lo overthrow his own government. American officials asked for a copy ot Ills document, and were refused. But when a communist stooge in the new Russian-backed regime hi HunBnry charged that Undersecretary o[ State Achcson had schemed with Nagy, and promised him suuiwri, under the Truman plan for Greece and Turkey, our State Department promptly published' the cor- rcsixindcncc between Nagy ' and Achcson.. . That's the difference between real democracy, and its communist counterfeit. • • ' The correspondence revealed that this was Achcson's "plot": He said the United States was considering means of continuing its aid lo Hungary; and he assured Nagy of American good will for the Hungarian people. And here's a wallop for the communist charge from the previously known record: The charge said (hut Acheson's pledge of including Hungary in the Truman plan was dug up In January. But the plnn wasn't forniuhited until Britain asked us the very lust of February, lo take pvcr her responsibilities In Greece nnd Turkey. The plan wasn't announced until after that—along hi March. Of course, for n communist, that's Just a slight discrepancy; hardly a lie by his standards. Other charms of the communist rule i n Hungary arc unfolding. An election is slutext, wltn the statement that "enemies ot the people" wilt not be allowed to vote. Naturally, the communist minority—about 17 per cent of the voters In the last election—will name these enemies. You can bet your shirt that they will be all who oppose communism It passes understanding how (my American can sympathize with, or respect, this tricky, unscrupulous, vicious brand of politics. —ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT BARBS BY HAL COCRRAN Some demists use the word "remove'' Instead of "extract."

One wns the national encampment of 4-II clubs. 183 strona — at least two boys, two yirls and a couple of 4-H leaders from every state and territory. All were country or rural town youngsters. The other outlit was the National Youth Lobby. 449 strong, from only 16 slates mid mostly big city and university youngsters. It's a pity somebody didn't think of gelling these two groups together, it might have ended in a riot, but it would have been worth the experiment. The Youth Lobby wax sallow ns to complexion, a little on thn frowsy side but awfully sophisticated, aw'- /"lly cocky, and with a hit:!i disdain for tilings as Iht-y are. They knew all the answers in ndvn-.-.CD as prize-winning leaders among ru- rtil .voting people in their stales. The 4-H club members cnmc, here to listen and learn. They heard tiilks from cabinet members and other government officials. They saw congressional agricultural committees in fiction. Then they had discussion groups. If the talks were .on the heavy mid dull side, the discussions when the kids tore 'cm apart were not. Near (he and O f (heir week's program the 39 members of tlie 1-H group who hntl reached voting age look the pledge of good citizenship on the steps of tlie Jefferson Memorial. They'll make good citizens all right, and no doubt about it. In contrast, the Youth Lobby came down here lo tell Congress lipw to run things, according i. o their liberal and decidedly left win-i notions. Some of the congressmen apparently listened politely. Oth«i congressmen told their youthful constituents to go on back iume and quit bothering them. Some shoved the lobbyists off on their secretaries. These youngsters atme away bitter and disgusted.

In the galleries, where each seat was filled and every stair had Its squatters, the scene was gay.
