THURSDAY, AUGUST 12, 1954 BLYTHEVILLE (ARKJ COURIER NEWS PAGE THREE Christianity's ' Hour of Decision WorldCoundlMeetirig Could Be Frustrated By Doubts, Discords (Third in a Series) By GEORGE W. CORNELL EVANSTON, 111. (AP) ~- Churchmen from the East and West headed today for a religious arena which is charged with tensions — both religious and political. The gathering is in the cause of Christianity. But around this central purpose swirls a haze of doubts and discords that could roll in to frustrate the meeting—the Assembly of the World Council of Churches here, starting Sunday for two weeks. "There are dangers, but there also are hopes," said Dr. G. K. A. Bell, Britain's Bishop of Chichester and chairman of the council's Cen- Commodity And Stock Markets- Ntw York Cotton (13:3* quotation* > Oct 3416 3425 3415 3418 Dec 3441 3448 3439 3441 Mch ?167 3473 3461 3461 May 3475 3487 3474 3474 Ntw Orleans Cotton Oct 3414 3422 3414 3415 Dec 3439 3447 3438 3440 Mch 3465 3470 3460 3463 May 3479 3487 3475 3477 Chicago Soybeans Sept ... 296 307% 294Vi> 307% Nov ... 270y 4 2791/2 269& 277 Jan ... 273 ft 283 y* 272% 280 fc Mch ... 275% 285% 275 281 & Chicago Wheat •Sept ... 210% 212 209% 211% Dec ... 213 V 8 215% 213% 215% Chicago Corn Sept ... 163 164 J / 2 163 164 1/3 Dec ... 154 156 153% 155 y 8 Ntw York Stocks (11:45 A T and T 173 5-8 Amer Tobacco 573-4 Anaconda Copper 40 Beth Steel 78 Chrysler 58 3-8 Gen Electric .- 44 3-4 Gen Motors ' 80 3-4 Montgomery Ward 67 3-8 N Y Central 22 1-2 Int Harvester 32 1-8 So.

May Reflect Politics "The danger in a great body of churches meeting in a time of so much strain, antagonism and hostility is that some may seek to reflect their own political and national points of view. "But there is hope that they will all come together in a mood to submit various experiences and insights, even ideologies, to the mastership and judgment of Christ." Although the council faces a host of touchy social and religious questions, probably the most explosive is the relationship of Christianity and communism, and the presence of delegates from Communist countries. At least 18 churchmen from Red- ruled lands—8 from East Germany and 5 each from Hungary and Czechoslovakia—will be among the 1,500 representatives. Others from Poland and Yugoslavia also may attend. "Communist collaborationists" is the label applied to them by Rep. Alvin M. Bentley (R-Mich), who says he will hold hearings simultaneously with the assembly to show their "false pretenses." He said they are "servants of world communism who masquerade as men of God." Disagreement Seen Others, including two Midwestern American Legion posts, also have denounced admission of the delegates. Daniel A. Poling, editor of the Christian Herald, called them "puppets of atheistic communism,," and said: "Evanston must declare communism antireligious, anti-Christ and utterly antagonistic to everything for which the church should stand, or Evanston will divide the American Protestant community." However, none of the 161 Orthodox, Old Catholic, Anglican and Protestant denominations in 48 countries belonging to the council have opposed representation of the Iron Curtain churches. Dr. W. A. Visser't Hooft, the council's general secretary, said "some of us may disagree" will* positions taken by Iron Curtain churchmen, but council membership is based solely on a "spiritual criterion"—recognition of Christ as divine Lord and Savior. He added it is "terribly important for this movement to keep in touch with the churches" behind the Iron Curtain, and so "everything we can to strengthen the links with Christians in those countries." Secretary of State John Foster Dulles, who as a church leader clashed with Iron Curtain delegates at the council's founding assembly six years ago at Amsterdam before he entered the government, backed their admission now. Inquiries Made The State Department made detailed inquiries before approving the visas. It said the importance of the meeting to worldwide Christian •"• • was so great the government should not bar anyone legally admissible. This implied non~ were found to be Communists or Fascists, who are barred under the McCarran Act. Dr. O. Frederi'-' Nolde. chair- of the council's International Relations Commission, called the decision a "clear demonstration of our belief-in religious freedom," which would hearten people under totalitarian rule. Most vociferous attack on admitting the Iron Curtain churchmen has come from the Rev. Carl McIntire of Collingswood, N. J.. head of a small faction of fundamentalists called 'he International Council of Christian Churches. Describing the delegates as "agents of the Kremlin," he has urged a wave of rallies, resolutions, speeches, advertisements, letters and demo Orations to protest their coming.

Vast W* German Strikes Seen FRANKFURT, Germany (£>) — A rank case of treason and widespread unrest tortured West Germany's nerves today. A million low-paid workers in industry, agriculture and even government are massing behind union leaders to get more money or walk out. Strikes this week by 15,000 Hamburg public utility employes and a majority of the 220,000 metal workers in Bavaria are a warmup for worse to come unless management and labor jointly begin talking reason. FAUBUS Continued from Page 1 The two candidates eliminated in the July 27 preferential primary split in their support of the run-off candidates. State Sen. Guy Jones of Conway endorsed Faubus, Gus McMillan, a Sheridan real estate dealer, first supported Faubus, but later switched to Cherry. Faubus carried all five of the counties which went for Jones and McMillan in the preferential primary. Iraq Leader's Return Heralds Pott Revision BEIRUT, Lebannon, iff)— The return to power of a veteran Iraq warrior who once-hanged Communists in the streets may herald a new British agreement in the Middle East-a revision of the British-Iraqi tready. Iraq's new premier, 66-year-old Nuri Said, recently returned to Baghdad after a lenghty stay in London. He formed a tough-fisted cabinet, dissolved parliament, and announced two major objectives- crushing of subversive activity and revision of the tready with Britian.

Ike Inches Into Role In Election By JACK BELL WASHINGTON UF> — President Eisenhower appears to be inching into a leading role in the battle for control of Congress despite has avowed plans to remain aloof from local political skirmishes. Administration leaders said today Eisenhower hopes to go on television and radio with a 30-min- uce talk on the administration's legislative record within 24 hours after congress ends its regular work, probably .next week. Eisenhower told his news conference yesterday he was planning what he called a little bit of a talk to review Congress' record since he took office in January 1953. He added he didn't want to cheat on himself by saying any more at this time. But administration officials who asked anonymity said .preparations for the appearance have been under way for a long time. Although the President's talk will be billed as a report to the nation, Democrats indicated they may demand equal time to counter what some of them said they regard ,.s a Republican kickoff for the congressional campaign. Despite Eisenhower's repeated statements that he would avoid. getting involved in local political fights, his schedule already includes appearances in Illinois, New Jersey and Kentucky. Pressure is reported beginning to build up heavily from other areas. The President has also taken time to pose for pictures with more than 100 GOP House members. GOP National Committee officials have turned to Vice President Nixon to carry the heavy burden of a political stumping tour. Nixon starts his active campaigning with a speech at the Ohio State Fair Sept. 15 and is expected to make several excursions to different parts of the country before the November voting. Many Republicans say, however, that there is no voice equal to Eisenhower's in defending the record of the GOP-controlled Congress. Eisenhower has insisted that the Republicans must stand or fall "on the record made on the administration's program. As expected, there is a sharp division of political opinion on that Sen. Carlson (R-Kan) said he thinks the Eisenhower administration "can be proud of the record it has made in reducing taxes and S ETAOTN SHRDLU CMF WYPV expenditures and in handling foreign affairs," and he added": "I'm going out in the campaign and talk about it." Sen. Symington (D-Mo) said he doesn't believe the farmers are satisfied with the administration's program in that field and will show it with their votes. However, Sen. Aiken (R-Vt), who piloted the President's flexible price support program through the Senate, said he believes farm pric are going to strengthen. 79 Jailed tor Loitering LITTLE ROCK (/P) — Nineteen Negroes were arrested here one day this week for loitering on the sidewalk. They were in front of the state employment office. SENATE Continued from Page I the measure back to conference with instructions to take disputed patent provisions out of the compromise version, today won a new recruit in Sen. Smathers (D-Fla). Smathers said he would support the effort to substitute compulsory patent-sharing for a provision in the revised bill that would permit regular, exclusive patents on civilian atomic developments. The Florida senator told a newsman he thought the vote tomorrow would "be very close. It might be decided by not more than three votes." Knowland and Sen. Hickenlooper (R-Iowa), Senate floor manager for the bill, have forecast senate passage. Smathers said he wants to retain the original senate provision requiring 10 years of compulsory patent-sharing. The compromise measure, which left out the Senate provision, would permit normal 17-year patent rights on all civilian developments not made under government auspices. It would also require the Atomic Energy Commission to favor concerns agreeing to patent- sharing in granting licenses, during the first five years, for manufacturing commercial atomic equipment. Tie revised bill also would allow the AEC to build full-scale experimental power plants but would bar it from commercial power. This subject was the target of much of the public vs. private power argument during the Senate's lengthy debate. IKE (Continued from Page t) great strength. The level of busi- j ness and consumer confidence in the economic future is high and improving." The President said the economic program being enacted by the present Congress "marks a milestone in constructive legislation." He raid the program, which he did not detail, will help reduce unemployment and stimulate enterprise and development in all directions. "In the months and years ahead, we must continue to bring knowledge, cool judgement, and a conj ceni for people to the consideration j of economic problems," the report i said. "In the measure that we do | this, we may look forward with i great coniidens* *» *w future." With The Court CIRCUIT: (Criminal division) State of Arkansas vs. Ree Lewis, driving while intoxicated, appealed from Municipal Court. COMMON PLEAS: E. B. Chitwood, agent for W. E. Jost, vs. Josie Ralph, unlawful de- tainer. Mrs. Tehert R. Touchstone vs. Walter Woodruff, suit for damages. Robert E. Ellis by Bob Ellis vs. Mitchell Johns, suit for damages. Strike Threat Cools At Oak Ridge Plant OAK RTDGE r Term. (/P) — Officials reported "business as usual" today at strige-threatened atomic plants here and at Faducah, Ky. CIO production workers, who had threatened to strike today as the key atomic plants to enforce their demands for pay raises, backed down in the face of a federal court injunction issued last night. The plants produce all of a vital ingredient for atomic and hydrogen bombs in this country. •-Lady look fii*st MAYTAG Adams Appliance Co. inc. 24' wide, single bo*( 36' wide, twin YOUNGSTOWN KITCHENS FOOD WASTE DISPOSER 42' wide, deep bowl right or left (Regular $94.50) when you buy any Cabinet Sink, Diana ensemble sink, or Jet- Tower Dishwasher shown here 42' wide, twin bowls J5" DeLuxe Cabinet Sink S4 r Deluxe Cabinet Smk 66' Deluxe Cabinet Sink 27* Jtt-Towef Dishwasher ' Etectoc Siirt HERE'S REAL VALUE! • No wnoke, no odo*i • Ends g«rbo9« • Eosy k> op«rot«, iof« • Continuoui ieed'mg • Safeguards health CABINET SINK Includes Yftmfstown KifciMns Food W«H Dispos* Includes fittings.,. ready for installation Work-saving, timesavtng aH-steef beauty Beautifully finished in Hi-Bake enamel Many wonderful features IT TODAY!
