Increased Religious Interest Is Linked to Troubled Times One of the more interesting tlevel- opments of these troubled times has been the great grouudsurge of religion. Millions are turning to the church for answers to problems which non-spiritual guidance haB been unable to solve. It probably is no coincidence then that nine years of planning and effort is about to result in the establishment of the National Council of Churches, embracing 29 Protestant churches with a combined membership of more than 31 million persons. " The Council is the outgrowth of a three-day meeting of 1200 delegates at Cleveland late in November. Some church leaders have referred to this meeting as "the most important gathering of non-Roman Christians in the history of the American church." The Rt. Rev. Henry Knox Sherill saw it as "proof of the underlying spirit of cooperation among the churches and a promise that in action together we will face the great issues and opportunities of our time." The National Council is a merger of eight national interdenominational agencies. They are the Federal Council of Churches; Foreign Missions Conference of North America; Home Missions Council of North America; International Council of Religious Education; Missionary Education Movement of the United States and Canada; National Protestant Council on Higher Education; United Council of Church Women; and United Stewardship Council. No merger of denominations is envisaged but the functions of all of these interdenominational bodies will be united. And from that union none can doubt that greater strength will come and greater good be done. been unable to get them. A total of 84.8 per cent said they found it difficult to find out fads or get them straight when newspapers weren't available. Men missed chiefly, in order of importance: local news, sports, national news, foreign news, radio and television information, comics, columnists and editorials. Women missed local news, local slore advertising, radio and television information, vital statistics, na- itonal news, 1'ood and cooking, comics and foreign news. The survey organization footnotes these last two findings on men mid women readers to the effect that people questioned may have had a tendency to minimize their real interest in comica and play up their interest in "more important things." 13e that us it may, the range of interest covered the whole paper. One reader summed up his feelings at being without his paperj "It's like losing an old friend." Views of Others Eggs Unpropped Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder The city of Pittsburgh has just found out what it is like to be without its daily newspapers for a prolonged period of time. Editions of Sunday, Nov. 19, were the first since a walkout of mailroom employes closed the three Pills- burgh dailies on Oct. 1. A survey taken by a national advertising and public relations firm shows what happened to business and to individual readers. Automobile dealers were unable to advertise new 1951 models and took losses ranging from 5 to 70 per cent. Beauty parlors estimated a falling off in trade of 20 to 50 per cent. Clothing retailers saw the decline as 25 per cent. Drugs, entertainment, florists, schools, sporting events all showed sharp declines. A total of 92.4 per cent of people interviewed thought newspapers had become more important since they had Secretary of Agriculture Brannan's announcement Wednesday thai the government will cease its price-support, program lor eggs will be widely hailed—by consumers, with enormous overproduction of eggs, largely brought about by the government, buying programs since 1942, prices ot eggs may be expected to fail when the agriculture department stops buying surpluses at the end of this year. Naturally poultry producers are not pleased with the announcement. Mr. Brannan lias become the symbol for unintelligent government manipulations of * prices and production. But the blame for the egg-buying fiasco must be Initl squarely at the door of congress. Regardless of administration pressures on that legislative bcdy, the laws under which the purchase program has been required to operate were (Missed by Congress. l>ast year the agriculture department maintained a price floor at 45 cents a dozen on the farm for eggs. This year, the floor was reduced 10 cents. The result of such programs l> to force consumers to pay more for their eggs and to waste millions of dollars' worth of eggs each year. Secretary Brannan 'admits egg buying operations this year will force the government to take a loss of SS5.000.fXX). In previous years, when ttiere were smaller surpluses, the government lost about $60,000,000. In an effort to salvage something from these heavy purchases, the government either stored them under contract in cold storage plants, or paid to have them dehydrated. Millions of pounds have been given to schools. Institutions, the armed forces, for foreign relief, and at low cost to foreign governments. But literally billions of eggs have not been used. Under the \av,\ passed by Congress, these dried eggs could not be sold on the domestic market unless the government could get back its cost of the original eggs, plus dehydration, storage, and certain, other charges. It has been estimated this would run the cost of dehydrated eggs up to about $1.50 per pound—which explains why US processors have bought their dried eggs from China and other sources. Tliis costly government monkeying with price and production provides a useful lesson for the American people and for their Congress. —NEW ORLEANS TIMES-PICAYUNE Wickedest City In major crimes for 1043, Washington leads the field with 21,334.

They will not only hold the balance of power between conservative Republicans and the combination of New Dealers and progressive Republicans which sometimes vote together, they have also gained in the number of chairmans hips on i m p o rtant congress i o n a I Peter Eiteon committees. Senators and congressmen don't iways vote consistently, nor do hey vote in solid blocs. Forecast- ng the outcome on important bills would be a lot easier If they did. But there is always a lot of maverick straying off the political range by individual congressmen, for reasons perhaps best known to some of their constituents. A careful analysis of voting records of the old-timers und political speeches of the newcomers does, however, indicate trends. And the trend for the 82nd Congress lines up about like this: Take the Senate. Of the 47 Republicans in the next Senate, 36 may be clasified as GOP conservatives. Eleven are what you might call middle-of-the-roaders. They are sometimes referred to as liberal Republicans and they do vote with the Democrats on some more progressive measures, or on foreign policy.

We know ,too, that germs ge into the sinuses and if they fin conditions favorable they wil multiply and cause inflammation there. But why they do this in some people and not in others is a mystery. What can be done for a person like the young woman whose letter is quoted? She has already taken the first steps. Some sinuses are bey, Ives, Morse, Duff, Flanders Aiken, Langer. Of the 49 Democrats in the next Senate, only 21 may be classified as voting more or less consistently for the New Deal or Fair Deal program Eleven Democrats—including fiv from the South—sometimes vote with the liberal Democrats, sometimes with the conservatives. They are liberals on foreign policy, conservative on civil rights and the more extreme Fair Deal proposals.

If these measures-fal), as they do all too often, we are up against it. Surgery offers help to some. Usually this consists in an operation to widen the opening Into the sinus permanently. But even this does not always work. Then there Is another difficult] decision. Should one rriove to an- ' other climate? Take the young lady who wrote so feelingly of her troubles. If she dediced to move she would have to give up her job and leave her family and friends. She may be miserable enough to do even this but she must still decide where to go. The said thing Is nd growing section of public op- nion, especially In Britain and France, favors the adoption by tlielr overnments of a policy of neutral- ty between America arid Russia. Well, my observation Is that thU sn't a true bill, but It comes close enough to the truth to make an legant piece of Red propagaC'ia, That's what the democracies'/ay hemselves open to by arguing all heir problems In public—and more power to that system of Ironuig out differences. We, the people, nave a right to know what goes on n the governmental mind. Differences Exist It's true there are differences of opinion between the United States and Britain over the Far Eastern policy, but this isn't strange In view of the fact that It represents one of the most difficult problems n years. It has many ramifications, but we may sum up the position like this: British observers say America Is more convinced of the approach of war v/ith the Soviets than Is England. Britons don't believe war is Imminent but they are afraid the United States will precipitate it by becoming involved with China In the Par East. Britain, say these observers, doesn't think Uncle Sam Is looking for war with China, but they are afraid events are taking charge and that such conflict might develop through Russia pushing China Into It. Britain therefore is anxious to see the Korean War wound up as quickly as possible. And so is the united. Slates. Britain Recognizes Reds There is another difference of viewpoint between Washington and London regarding their attitude towards Communist China. Britain has recognized the pelping whereas America has held . That Is a position which could cause complications if London should extend Its relations with the Chinese Reds. Naturally the U. S. A. doesn't want to see that happen. As for German rearman.ent, there are differences and there is considerable opposition among Lh« Germans themselves to rearmament. However, the divergencies a- hat he. had made a doubtful play ti any point! Dummy played low at the first trick (not a bad Idea), but East ml up the king.anyway. East then! returned a low club. If South had been a cautious jlayer, he would have discarded a -leart oil the second round of clubs. The rest would then have been easy. There would be two spades to ruff in dummy, and South would have to be careful in getting back to his hand to draw trumps, hut it wouldn't be really" difficult. Hov, r ever, South was not a cautious player. I'.e expected both red s lilts : to break 3-2. in which'case he could'-pake 'a'n' : extra tHck,--worth just 20. poihl*. iHence.he ruffed the se'corid. club vith -.the -jack"ol diamonds. that no one can tell her ahead of time that she is absolutely .sure to get relief one place or another. Climate Chance May Help Change of climate does help a lot of sinus sufferers nevertheless. A climate without~extremes of temperature change between winter and summer and between night and day usually works out best. Also a reasonable amount of moisture in the atmosphere is' desirable. Certain parts of Florida and Sofithern California fit these needs pretty well, but some sinus victims: dt '.veil in Arizona and similar drier climates. There is. no one climate which does the trick for all and it is therefore wise to take a long vacation in the place selected and watch the results before-making It a.-permanVnt residence;''. ' - mong the Allies rest largely in question of what safeguards would be necessary to ensure that Germany never again shall become an aggressor. There I* no reason to suppose that these differences won't he ironed but in due course. Yes, there are differences among the democracies. And these are the reflections. Just as American public opinion Is divided on many issues, so is opinion divided -in Britain and France and other nations of western Europe. A country's policy must be made to conform to the ideas of its voters. It would be strange ; If all the views of America agreed with those of Britain and France and other democracies. And it isn't necessary that there be such dfin.- formity for successful cooperacpn. The tiling which we need to be sure about, and which we can be sure about, is thai in the great emergency of war the democracies would bury all differences and stand together. ..„,.««,. . • mashed , to. a 'pulp.
