That if thou shall confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shall be saved. -- Romans 10:8, 9 America struggles to keep the faith Oh! you who sleep in Flanders fields Sleep sweet -- to rise anew We caught the torch you threw And holding high, we keep the faith With all who died. These words are from the first stanza of the poem "We Shall Keep the Faith," written as World War 1 was ending by a Georgia woman, Moina Michael, originator of the Memorial Day poppy program. Nearly 59 years later, Americans can gratefully say "we keep the faith." The freedom for which all who died in World War I and the nation's earlier wars still survives. But the many years since Miss Michael wrote her poem have been vivid proof of the fact that the survival of liberty is a never-ending struggle. Since the time those who rest in Flanders fields died in defense of their country, thousands upon thousands of other Americans have been killed or wounded and the nation has had to use enormous amounts of all its resources in an even greater world war and in smaller but also costly armed conflicts in Korea and Vietnam. And even while Americans were still dying on foreign battlefields in defense of freedom, social upheavals were disturbing the peace and eroding unity on the home front. As the last decade ended with the nation shaken by riots in its cities and demonstrations on its campuses, Richard Rovere wrote in the New York Times: "The Sixties have been a period of steadily declining civility and mounting instability...In this country, as of now, democratic institutions are pretty much intact, but they are demonstrably inadequate and increasingly vulnerable." With the start of this decade, the war in Vietnam ended but the nation was rocked by one of its greatest governmental crises -- the Watergate scandal. Now a period of calmness and peace has settled upon the nation. Yet nearly 59 years since the end of World War I, the American way of life still cannot be considered absolutely secure. Insidious dangers now challenge our nation: Economic instability, crime, assaults on those values for which Americans have fought, and unrest in the Mideast and Africa. America will overcome these perils, too, but only if its people do what they have done throughout its years of struggle for freedom -hold the torch high and keep the faith in the principles that have made it the bulwark of freedom and the greatest nation on earth. Moscow warns China--and U.S. By ROSCOE DRUMMOND RUSSO-CHINESE TENSION DEEPENS. Moscow's angry blast at the post- Mao Chinese government, charging it with warmongering hostility toward the Soviet Union, is the most significant development on the international horizon. It is the most extreme attack on Peking that has yet come from the Soviet leadership and has the stamp of Kremlin approval in a Pravda article. It contends that the Chinese regime has abandoned any effort and any wish for detente between the two Communist giants. It puts all the blame on the Chinese, and it boldly alleges that "China is today the only country in the world whose official circles advocate openly and without any camouflage a new world slaughter." Pravda offers no source for its allegation. A SINO-SOV1ET CONFRONTATION. IN THE MAKING? U.S. experts see grave consequences as almost certain. Already Soviet and Chinese troops are glaring at each other along their 5,000- mile Asiatic frontier where sharp clashes have occurred several times in recent years. Moscow already has an army of at least 2 million men on its eastern border and reinforcements are expected. Local incidents are inescapable, and they are often the spark which escalates into full-scale war. MOSCOW'S WARNING TO THE U.S. The Soviet leaders are seeking to persuade the Carter Administration that if China.attacks Russia, Peking will also make war on United States and other Western nations. The ominous Pravda article accuses China of plotting a world war. It admonishes the United States not to think it could escape from being a target any more than we could escape being the target of Hitler in World War II. In seeking to stir American fears, it invokes "the yellow peril." The gravest question has to be asked: Does the Soviet Union really fear a large- scale Chinese attack in the near future or is it seeking to provide a shield behind which it can launch a pre-emptive strike against China? ZAIRE HOLDING AGAINST INVADERS. With the support of Moroccan troops plus aid from China, Belgium, France and, to a lesser extent, the United States, the government of President Mobutu is slowly turning back the aggression from. Angola. The United States has not allowed itself to be a major participant in helping Zaire. It has left that role tonearer a'lies, but we were among the first to offer help.;. The prospect is that Zaire will successfully maintain its independence! THE SOUTH NOW MANNING THE GOVERNMENT. The road to position and power in the federal establishment no longer runs from Harvard to Washington; it runs from the University of Georgia, the University of Texas and other Southern colleges to Washington. The top staff of the White House and the high levels of the politically appointed bureaucracy abound with talent from the principal universities of the South. Perhaps Harvard doesn't care, (c) 19!7, Los Angeles Times Syndicate What PAAA rallies are all about By PAULHARVEY Tomorrow is here. There's more of everything in it. Comeand get it! There's got to be a Fourth of July every year, you know. That's what the Positive Mental Attitude (PMA) rallies are all about. The fruits of freedom are not something won for us once-and-for-all at Ticonderoga or Valley Forge, thereafter forever to be consumed in leisure. They must be replanted and tended and harvested over and over again every year of every generation. That's what the PMA rallies are all about. Our 1976 Bicentennial binge was a lot of fun, but the steam blew off in the whistle. Our enthusiasm is stalling out again. Individually and nationally we need our batteries recharged ceaselessly. That's what the PMA rallies are all about. Call it "positive thinking," or call it "faith in the future," or just call it "counting our chickens"! I mean it. Count your chickens! This next Fourth of July let's declare our independence from the hackneyed, pessimistic proverbs of precaution which have intimidated us. Presently our leadership is preoccupied with "conservation," with thinking smaller and fewer and cheaper and less. A philosophy of less is not like us! We Americans are dreamers of big dreams! From prairie schooners to spaceships we count chickens before they are hatched; we cross bridges before there are bridges there! Don't misconstrue: The expedient of resource conservation is appropriate. Momentarily our account is overdrawn. But what I'm saying is that a philosophy of less is a retreat. We've not let despots turn out our lights; let's not us do it! This country was not "carved out of the wilderness," you know. This country was hacked and sawed and dug and clawed and mopped and hoed out of the wilderness by bare-handed men who asked nothing for nothing. But what they did they did with courage and with faith in their God, their country and themselves -- in that order. They committed themselves during this earthly while to leaving the woodpile a little higher than they found it. And most did. That spirit is not dead in our country. It's dormant. It's been diluted by the unbecoming spoon-feeding of grown-ups. It's been neglected due to our preoccupation with other-than homefolks. So that's what the PMA rallies are all about. We are not going to sit back and do less and use less and have less while our muscles atrophy and our stamina stagnates and our energy is exhausted. Chicken-counters -- sound off! Every pessimist in history has been buried in an unmarked grave. This will be the decade of the doers; moving us -- U.S. -- up to the front again. Tomorrow is on the table and it's delicious. Come and get it! That is what the PMA rallies are all about. (c) 1977, Los Angeles Times Syndicate Greeiey Daily Tribune Ail! The Greeley Republican Tribune Republican Publishing Co.

(Aren't kids wonderful?) . + + + LUCY'S CALL - Lucy called to tell about the little four-year-old boy for whom things were not going too well. After being reprimanded by his mother three or four times, she finally said to him, "Son, you go to that chair and sit down--now!" He went to the chair, sal down, and glared at her. "Okay," he said . meaningfully, "I'm sitting down on the outside, but I'm standing up on the inside!" Letters to the Tribune Questions admission of 3 women to U.S. To The Tribune: A Rocky Mountain News Commentary, dated May 5, 1977, written by Mary MeGrory, states that "three women came to beg, not for money, but for a cutoff of funds for their native Chile." Mrs. MeGrory identifies Carmen Gloria Aguayo, a cabinet minister in the Allende government, Gladys Marin, a onetime congresswoman and "leader of ^Chilean Communist youth," and Dr. Maria Elena Carrera, a former Socialist senator, as exiles and now visitors to the United States. All of these women are in the United States participating in political activities. Section 212 (a) (28) of the Immigration and Nationality Act prohibits the admission of Communist Party members of any Communist Party of any country from entering the United States, for any reason. Exceptions to this can be made only under Section 212 (d) (3) which provides a waiver of excludability. This waiver must be obtained prior to the admission of such aliens. This waiver is obtained from the State Department in a country outside the U.S. Another possible exception to the law would be a parole by the U.S. Immigration Service. Neither of these exceptions would permit a beneficiary alien to participate in overt political activities after their admission 'or parole into the U.S. So, either way you look at it, all three of these are in violation of their status in the U.S., since they are participating fa oyfrl political activities. I feel that as a native born citizen of the United Slates, I have a right to know why these women were admitted to the United States; if they were properly documented prior to their admission to the United Slates; why deportation ' proceedings have not been instituted against them and why the State Department is meeting with these women in the U.S. when that Department's function is to deal with the external affairs of this country and not its internal affairs. Robert E. Gilbaugh Sr. 3620 Denver St. Evans Soccer Association officials thanked To The Tribune: We would like to publicly thank Ken Humphrey and the officials of the Greeley Soccer Association for their efforts during the past few months on behalf of the young people of our community. Those of us who have had the good fortune to experience similar activities in other countries and on other continents welcome this exciting game to Greeley. It is most refreshing to see the incredible volunteer involvement and the kids' response to one of the world's most exciting games. The emphasis on development 1 of lifelong recreational skills with cooperative, rather tnan competitive, human values should set an example for the entire community.
