Tomorrow begins Blylhevillc's first Boys and Girls week under sponsorship of the city's Rotary Club ami we offer the hope that it is the beginning of long series of such programs which will put deserved emphasis on the community's youth. Not Dial BJ.vfheville has not bce;i youth cotisciouB in the past. It has. But this program affords another opportunity for the adult citizens to tell the young people, "Sure, we know you are the most important people in this town." Practically all the special "clays" (career, recreation, church, etc.) can and are being developed into worthwhile programs in time. The career day would be especially valuable lo the young peo- pie. Again we express the hope that the Rotarians will see fit to sponsor this program annually with nil eye toward expanding il every year. Presidential Primary Would Offer True Choice At a recent news conference President Truman dropped a remark about wishing we could have a direct national primary for the selection of presidential nominees. No one can be sure that the President meant what he said, since he gets pretty flippant in those bouts with the press. Hut it might well be argued that there is some sound sense in lit!" nropo- siiion. hi unly 10 states of the 48 is there now a "jire.-idenlial" primary, and in several of those IG the popular expression of seniiim-nt is purely advisory instead o! binding on the delegate's to the national convention. The other 32 states select delegates in state conventions, where the people's voice- is heard only indirectly. Anyone who mideistands the workings of l-'olilii-.s Unows that stale party conventions are largely under the cou- Irol of the party machinery. The slate of delegates which emerges from such conclaves is in almost every instance the product of party orgaiii/ation decisions. The successful rebellions against organization control are relatively rare. Actually, the convention method of choosing delegates, representatives and even nominees is a carry-over from earlier American history. It reflects the compromise made l>y the Founding Fathers between those who wanted true democracy and those who feared too direct expression of the popular will. Gradually this fear lessened, and machinery was established to give the people closer control over selection of their representatives. Only n few decades ago senators were still being chosen for nomination by state convention; now they are picked in direct primaries. The primary method finally began to be adopted in the presidential race as well, though its application there is still sharply limited. But insofar as it does help to measure genuine popular sentiment as to candidates, it must be counted a gain. The present primary system is handicapped not only by limited application hut by certain attitudes that have grown up around it. As is evident in the current campaign, (here seems lo he H notion, for example, that the "favorite son" principle should operate in stales where a leading political figure is a candidate. In other words, it is contended that Ihe home state candidate should be conceded his own territory without a fight. Senator Taft has indicated he will not go into California where Gov. ICnvl Warren has declared. Warren docs not intend to invade Ohio, though Harold Slassen declines to observe this gentlemen's agreement and hence he is going into Tafl's bailiwick and possibly Warren's. Bui can't it be fairly argued that this hands-off policy in favorite-son states simply nullifies the value of the .priniiiry? Of what purpose is a resort to the polls if there is lo be no real contest among Ihe leading contenders? Whal does it prove if Warren lakes California or Taft wins Ohio without a real test,? Offhand.it seems'about as significant as a "yes" vote in Moscow, where (here are no opposition choices on (he ballot. If there lire logical grounds why senators and representatives should be nominated in direct primaries but presidents should not, they ought lo be heard. The people are supposed to be sovereign, and it is a little, difficult to see how they can be when they have normally so small a voice in the choice of major parly nominees for their highest office.

K. Gilroy, I). II. Written for NEA Service The love of God wns deeply ingrained in Jewish religion nnd worship, and was ut the very heart of the faith and experience of the dc- x-out souls in Israel. In the synagogue the recitation of the "shema." consisting of verses '1 to 9 in Deuteronomy 6 had a place similar to the regular use of the Lord's Prnycr in Christian churche.^ todny. We do not know just how. or at what time, the consciousness of His M^-smhship and divine mission may have become a reality to thr- Mastcr.

And a typical Christian precept is. "Whether therefore ye eat or , drink, or whatsoever ye do. do nil to t!ic clory of God" (I Corinthians 10:31). But what it means to love God depends not only upon man's \^hole-heartett sincerity: it depends. also, upon man's conception of God whom he loves.
