The most competent observers are agreed that the middle-class voters and many of labor's rank and file were fed up with austerity, controls, and the pallid, dispirited leadership of the Labor bureaucracy, None of this is to say Churchill's path will be smooth. But the election result must nevertheless he viewed by free men as a harbinger of greater hope for peace and stability in the Western world. Greasing the Way JIaj.-Gen. Harry Vaiighan's philosophy is now somewhat clearer. He IB not an influence-peddler. There in no rnatfic in those words, "the While House is calling," uttered over the telephone to some government agency with favors to dispense. What Vaughan does is merely to speed things up for the people who come to him, to slash away the tangle of red tape, to get them a hearing. It is a job he feels himself uniquely fitted for. The fact that he practices it under the White House roof he regards as purely incidental. The general's ambition begins to emerge and take shape. He wants to go down in history as the Great Expediter. One wonders whether he has given thought to the prospect that in living up to this grand role he might assist in expediting his boss right out of the White House. once over lightly- A. 4. rmtriekMJt You would think from all the beefinj currently under way that professional wagering was honest, upright, moral and generally pure as the driven snow while the law of the land was palpably criminal, dishonest, underhanded and utterly discriminatory. And if some current plans are carried out, the U. fi. Supreme Court is slated to be handed ft case that will light up the field of law and ethics like a grand-slam homer on a pinball machine. A Washington shy—uh, lawyer—plans to appeal the law slapping federal taxes on gamblers as unconstitutional. * * • EITHER THE HIGHEST court in the U. S. of A. will glare indignantly and throw this case plumb out of the building or the tribunal will prove conclusively that it is no less packed than when FDR Sunday School Lesson Views of Others Churchill's Victory Augurs Well for U.S. and Free World . The election victory of Winston Churchill and his Conservative Party premises a new strengthening of ties between Britain antl the United States »nd a substantially greater solidarity among all the nations allied against •XMMnunism. Although returni Indicate that the Conservatives will fall short of gaining an ideal working majority in the House of Commons, their margin should be •uffficient to permit fairly stable government in Britain for the next few years. There can be no doubl that this ovit- oome i« warmly welcomed in Washington and other Western captals. Church- Ill, tht new prime minister, and Anthony Eden, once more foreign secretary, are old hands at dealing with Washington and Paris. They are personally acquainted with many of the men they will find opposite them at the council table. Labor's unfortunate campagn effort to depict Churchill as the man more likely than any other to lead Britain to war is probably the reverse of the truth. Whether or not he can engineer the meeting between himself, Joseph Stalin and President Truman which he believes might assist a general peace settlement, most Western diplomats see him as a bulwark of strength. As in World War U, he is likely to symbolize the free world's resolve to stand firm against tyranny. Only this time his goal—his "last prize"—is to achieve that end without falling either into war or into abject appeasement. Churchill's triumph does not wash away a tremendous accumulation of thorny problems for Britain, both domestically and overseas. The Iranian and Egyptian muddles are still to l>e solved, and the West can only hope the "Old Warrior" will bring some fresh, imaginative proposals to hear on these dilemmas. At home, Britain agutn is in the throes of a financial crisis. All sides recognize that if the country is to bear the burden of rearmament and still keep the civilian economy above water, more aid from America will be required. But here, or.ce more, Churchill's victory is viewed as fortunate. For his personal popularity in the United States is almost an assurance that a money appeal from him wilt get friendly consideration, No longer can lawmakers in Washington mutter angrily a'>nut.

But when they can come to Sometimes il is as dangerous to tell an enemy what we do not have as to tell htm what w« do have. Keep 'em guessing IB always the safest policy in dealing with any opponent*. Two officials who surely know and understand that policy are Robert A. Lovett, Secretary of Defense, and Sen. Richard B. Riissell. chairman of the armed services committee. Both of them are fully cognizant of their responsibilities •nd not given to speaking hastily. Therefore they must hav« weighed oreiully the possible consequences before telHng American Legionnaires In Miami what wa do not have In the way of fantastic new-weapons. Quite evidently they 'considered it more Important taat the American people fully understand our capabilities than that the enemy be misled. Secretary Lovett said the "new sxiper weapons" are still untried at the proving grounds In Nevada. He said they are not ready yet for battlefield use. He warned that exaggerated hopes uri being pinned on the availability of such weapons. But he reported "very substantial pro- grew" In their development, especially the** of an atomic nature. Senator RusseU said that practically all th« "fantastic" weapons are still In the planning stage, and warned against relaxing into any such state of unpreparedness as prevailed before Korea. Thus we are reminded that there ts. no quick, or easy way to protect our lives and our freedoms. The Flash Gordon type of warfare Is not here yet and may never be. We must rely not on any ons weapon but on ihe best co-orrtination of all weapons In the hands of well-trained men. In an age of science and technology we will push research and keep (o Ihe forefront in development of new methods, equipment, and weapons. But we must still put our faith in soldier, the sailor, and the airman. — ATLANTA .JOURNAL .mfnt will never be approved by France," says her present Minister of National Defense, M. Georges Bidault "Francs cannot accept a revived Wehrrhacht," he told ft group of American newspaper correspondents now on tour of Western European defense installations to inspect the progress and obstacles to rearmament ot the a n t i - communist countries. "No one who has ever fought Germany will accept a revival of German militarism," * * y i the wiry and now graying little Defense Minister. Peter Edson Bidault speaks with considerable feeling on this subject. He spent seven years in the French Army. But he went on from there to become «, war-time leader of the French underground against Germany. And after the war he became France's Foreign Minister and later her Premier. So he speaks with authority, ax a leading French po litical figure. By banning complete German re rmament, however, Bidault doe not exclude the possibility of in hiding German units In a Euro pean Army, such as General Dwigh D. Eisenhower now envisages, Thi s an Important distinction, perhaps •.ot fully realized in the Unite< States. Negotiations to bring German nto the Western European defens effort have now been going on lo some months at both Paris the ime ct. Ike agreement, no one can pre- Make Want* Germans To Own Decision Eisenhower has observers at these Iks. When he first came to Europe ' take command of Western Eu- opean forces, he felt that the ubject of German rearmament be- allowed to rest. It had Ken talked up to the point of onfusing the German people. They elt they were being pushed into omething. Eisenhower believed they nould be allowed to make up their wn minds, In their own self-ln- erest. Now, however, he talks of the remendous advantage of bringing Germany into the European army He does not believe the Germans be brought Into the Western *rmy as Inferiors and he does not want them In as mercenaries. The Hessians were no good lo he British in the American Revolu- iionary War. Tnere is no reason to be! 1ftVE they wou Id be any be tte r now. So tht counsel for the Eisenhower headquarters ha.s been to work for a flexible agreement— one that will fit any future pos- sbility. This is now taken to mean that there will be no hard and fast limitations on the siz* or number of German units that might be in eluded in a European army. The agreement would .thus become one of principle, not substance. In the meantime, Bidault gives every assurance that Prance will keep her word—will .keep every commitment she has made on building up her own armed forces. This will include an army of 850.000 men French Have Ten Divisions . In FXr East Bidault calls attention to the fact :hat this is not the entire French armed force—a fact generally over- .ooked. There are 10 more French divisions In Indo-China. and two ! divisions In North Africa, The Far Eastern troops are approximately one-third French, one-third Moroccan and one-third native Vietnamese. Nor ii this the complete French effort. The plan is to have 15 divisions in Europe by .the end of 10.V2 and 20 'divisions by the end of 1953. Behind these divisions will be reserves based on the French universal military service program —capable of expanding some of the egular division; into two and three iivisions. The idea is to bring these •eserves into a state of "readiness where they can be mobilized within 4S hours. This 1* a tremendous speed up over the old five-day and 30-day mobilization plans. France has standardized her divisions and her ammunition with American organization and specification. An inspection of the 93rd Infantry Regiment, near Paris, showed U. S. .30 caliber rifles, semiautomatic, automatic and Tommy guns, machine gnns, rockets find grenade launchers in use, Some oi these weapons and all of their mmunition will be of French manufacture. The French rearmament program calls for building a French air force able to support fully all French ground troop*, though this strength is not now available. The debate Bonn, between American.

Widely, among all peoples -her ever the Bible is read, the slavery of the Jews in Egypt has been symbol for slavery and bondage everywhere. And similarly, Mosee ha* been the outstanding type of leader of a people, and their deliverer from bondage. Such a leader, wherever he has appeared, has Inevitably been called "a Moses." That' obviously. Is a great dis tinction: and it Is a merited distinction. Where in all literature history could a leader be found who in all the details of- his char acter, experiences, and career fully typifies the man of action, de voted to breaking the bonds those held in subjection? The career of a liberator, unless he be a phony, whose underlying spirit Is ambition and the aim of power for himself — : a phony type with which the whole history of liberation is clustered — almost inevitably begins in a great act of renunciation. He has to decide whether he will love for himself, or for those whom he has the impulse to serve an dliberat*. It was thus that Moses began. Rescued from a pitch-lined basket in the -water, he was brought up by Pharaoh's daughter in the palace, with privilege and a great destiny marked out for him. But he did not choose the way of personal ambition and worldly success. He realized his Jewish origin, he the affliction of his people .and he chose to cast in, his lot with them rather than be called ''the »on ol Pharaoh's daughter." The author .of Hebrews II characterizes it as a great act of faith and such it was. But It was also a great act of courage and devotion, set negatively in renunciation, and positively in A course determined action. For the man who would be an emancipator renunciation alone ia not enough. Moses might have re i tired from the palace, and found freedom in the wilderness for him self. It was his action that countec During the years when I was editing THE CONGREGATIONAL 1ST, in Boston, there frequentl came to my office men and women whom I knew to have accomplish* See SUNDAY SCHOOL P»c« U t GET A CERTAIN enjoyment .ut of listening to the rats squeal, tut I'm not convinced the trap has snapped that tight. It wasn't oo many columns back that I in- iisted that there is a lot of unen- 'orceability about a law like this, which enshrouds a crime with an ' aura of legality. I still do. One ol the sorriest aspects Is that such a law—like the "black market" tax on whiskey in "dry" Mississippi—it a public" confession that crime if, in the end, unconquerable and the only thing we can do IB tax it and ignore the blood on the remittances.
