Tlie state had brought criminal prosecution .against Setzer, charging "in substance" that he had married Claudia Earl Munday, in Clwrleston, S. C.. Oct. 4, 1942, and h»rtng a living wife in North Carolina, from whom he was not dl- torced. The court held that had Selzcr mwried his second wife In North ,th«l it was because Samuel, Blowing establishment of the people in Palestine, a failure or a success? He succeeded as a religious leader. He was a success as a man of integrity, completely devoted to the safely and welfare of his pco- ple. He made Israel strong, and it Is doubtful whether the disaster of being old and decrepit, Samuel appears, to have been still vigorous the peopl; in plain and terrible words, which for the' most part have had tragic vindication in the history of kings, of what their turning from his religious leadership to dependence upon a king would mean. •"He will take your sons, and ap- whtch came upon them in the de- point them for himself, for his chariots, and to be his horsemen he will take your daughters to be bakers — he will take our fields and your vineyards, etc." (sec chapter 8, verses 11-18) feat and downfall of their first king. Saul, would ever have' occurred if the people had been con- b c confcclionaries, anil to lie cooks, tent with Samuel's leadership. But Samuel attempted to what other able and sincere religious leaders have attempted do in the course of history—to coin- bine civil and political power with clerical authority—and In this he failed, as almost all of his successors In that effort have failed. Despite Samuel's apparent success, the people revolted against his rule, not violently but effectually, and demanded a king. The early verses of Chapter 8 suggest It is a vivid, and for the most >art a remarkably prophetic,•'- account of what kings have bten In History, as much oppressors and exploiters as rulers. And the words of Samuel were prophetic ol what happened to Israel, despite the itrong rule of Oavld and the glory of King Solomon. What, then, of religion and civil government? Must government be secular to bc successful? No. Samuel was right in his contention that religion must be at the very heart of a nation that would seek safe ty and the commonweal. 'But he was wrong In the idea that ecclesiastic rule is the necessary condition of good government. H Is principles of truth and righteousness, of that must bc a of the state, not church dogmas which may or may not represent those principles. Racketeering In Gl Program Is Charged Since veterans received subsistence while undergoing training, Stewart asserted, "there Is enormous pressure to designate all manner of enterprises as training Institutions." "Already various practices are a moral scandal," he said, and may lead to "an open scandal when MEMPHIS, Tenn., Mar. 28.

However, under North Carolina law, the charge, would revert to bigamous co-habitation In that the state charged that he "lived with" hli second wife in North Carolina. Since the state offered the testimony of Mrs. Lots Moore Sctzer, and on 'which he was convicted, Judge Wallace Winborne wrote that "under North Carolina law a hus- bmnd and wife cannot testify against one another except, to prove the fiCt of marriage as In a prosecution of him for bigamy." Winborne said in wirtlng the opinion that "to prove the fact of marriage, ns in in prosecution upon indictment charging bigamy, the teatlmony of Mrs. Lots Seiner... vent far beyond this statutory pro- Vision.
