Policy Change Clouds Palestine Problem The Jews of Palestine quite understandably have taken their fate and future into their own hands. The UN General Assembly recommended tlie creation of independent J.ewish and Arab states. That recommendation atill stands. But it is onjy that—a recommendation written on a piece of paper. r - N ^ S ° thc Jews rfld wh «t the UN failed t to'do. They took steps to put that rec- t>~ omrnendation into action. And they took 1 them before the Assembly had a chance to reconsider its recommendation of partition. .JL'It i« hard to blame them for this. They are carrying out the will of the majority of world governments. That mijority decision would certainly stand today if the U. S. had not changed its mind and left everything in a state of confusion. It is hard to blame the Jews, yet some apparently do. We read that members of the UN Palestine Commission have criticized the Jewish Agency for taking steps to set up a provisional government on May 16. when the British mandate, ends. This was a job for the commission, these members say. And BO it was. But the criticism is not very realistic. The Jewish Agency had good reason - to believe that partition was a dead duck. A number of UN nations originally wore against it. According to reliable reports ^they were more or less whipped into line to support the solution that the U. S. then favored. If America changed her - mind, it was reasonable to suppose that the reluctant supporters would chantre theirs. It seems clear, from Ihe Jewish declaration, that this proposed provisional government would abide by the UN Partition plan 9 nd not insist on a Jewish government for all Palestine. AL the same time most Arab League leaders are reported willing to accept a five- year UN trusteeship provided they are guaranteed an independent ail-Arab Palestine at the end of that time. Yet in spite of the difference between _ the two proposals, it is the Jews not the / Arabs who are being criticized From the day of the partition vote, when the Arab states denounced the decision, through the months when they carried out their threats of violence, no rebuke has been uttered by the UN. The .question now is what'the UN and particularly the U. S,, will do next' The Jews oppose trusteeship. The Arabs favor it if they are to get all of Palestine. If trusteeship } s voted will it be wong the lines proposed by this govei-n- '•/' f ent ;<w will, the Arabs dictate the j.}. terms tv : s * jAad if the American proposal is .^ adopted, what then? That proposal of : ,«. trusteeship would have to be enforced, ^ «ne* both parties to the Palestine riis- f pute oppose it in its present form. War- hA *** -f "•*" tow , th « V Ser.urity Council that the U. S. would favor the use of fore* only to enforce peace, not partition. Would this government niiike the same reservation about enforcing R trusteeship? There seem to be only two courses open to the American government in its present stand. One would be to agree to enforce, trusteeship. The oilier would be for the leaders of the world's greatest nation to persuade the UN that it must acceed to the dictates of a half-dozen little states, backed by a poorly-equipped , army of perhaps 100,000 men.

VIEWS OF OTHERS Place of Home In Education In this dny, when the true importance of the public schools is being muddied by the nation-wide propaganda of the Roman Catholic Church to obtain public tax money [or parochial schools, it Is well to benr In mind Hie clarion call of Rt. Rev. Charles s. Selecman, Methodist Bishop of Dallas, Texas, in his address in Louisville, -Ky., at » four-day conference which resulted in establishing the Association of Evangelists ol The Methodist Church. Said Bishop Selecman, as reported In the religious press: "A real home is a religious and educational Institution, and a place where parents and children live on a basts of Christian love and fellowship. The most important educational institution is not the public school, the college or university, but the home." It is supremely Important to have the part the home plays in character building emphasized In these days when parochial school Interests are reaching out for the public treasury to supply funds with which to finance the building of Roman catholic schools. If Protestant homes can supply proper bringing up. likewise can Catholic homes, if Catholic church members have been properly brought up. Much emphasis is laid by tne Roman Catholic hierarchy on the Jact that the parents ot Catholic children are entitled to say what school their children shall attend. One agrees to thai readily enough, but why docs not the Roman Catholic hierarchy put into practice what it preaches. Every Catholic parent well knows that they hive no choice in the matter—they either send their offspring to a Roman Caihollc parochial school or are denied what the Roman Catholic hierarchy term "the sacraments"—which to R Ro/nan Catholic means going to "The F.verlasting Bontire" for good »nd all. So long as Catholic parent* elect to believe what others hold to he untenable, they will feel compelled to send their children to a parochial school Instead of to the public school, notwithstanding that many Catholic parents, if they had a free choice in the matter, would much prefer to send their children to the public schools. With the permission of priest or bisltop, they may send their children to the public schools. Ai Rev. Dr. Conrad H. Moehlman states so effectively in his inspiring bock "School and Church" (page 100) (Harper & Brothers): "The religious element in public education is everything that promotes faith in the higher values of life. Religion Is not something apart but a continuous part of our experience. Public education is designed to prepare the American child to live creatively in the American environment. Although the public school may not and should not teach religion directly, everyone should understand that public education always has inculcated religious and ethical values indirectly . . . The campus ol the public school is the one area in American life where religious and racial tolerance is cultivated. It Is America's protection against numerous efforts to stir up religions prejudice and inaugurate a new inquisition." And again Irom the same book (page 85): "But functionally viewed, American public education emancipated from sectarianism Is indirectly the only universal teacher of religious values in the United Slates." —SCOTTISH RITE BULLETIN.

Gllroy, D. n, Scripture: Eieklel 1:1-1; 3:11, 17.41; 4:1-] A brief look into events In the History of Israel seems necessary to get the setting for this lesson and several that are to follow. When King Solomon "in all his Blory" died, the glory became evident how much of it had been built upon oppressive exactions from the people. The oppressed subjects up-' pealed to Rehoboam, Solomon's son to make their burdens lighter. Spurning the counsel of men old In wisdom and experience, Relio- boarn listened to young hotheads who urged him to show the people who was master. "My father." he said, "chastised you with whips; I'll chastise jou with scorpions." The result was that Jeroboam, a. former leader of discontent, who had fled Egypt, returned, led t successful rebellion, and established with 10 revolting tribes the Northern Kingdom, or Kingdom of Israel. Two tribes remained loyal io Re- hoboam in the Southern Kingdom, or Kingdom ol Judah. The kingdom that was strengthened and. consolidated under David and Solomon did not long survive this strife and division. In 122 B. C. the hosts of Assyria destroyed the Northern Kingdom, and 136 years later the Babylonians conquered the Southern Kingdom an-1 carried ofl its leaders and most of the people into exile. A vivid portrayal of the exile is presented in the 137th Psalm. But Hie suffering and bitterness there expressed apparently became considerably modified « the exiles were established in a colony and became so prosperous'that many of them refused to return to Palestine when the opportunity came. >. It is a, tragedy of human life Uiat the things of most worth are often not properly valued until they are lost. Prior to the exile there hart been a moral and religious letdown in Israel. But now. in a strange land, the things they had lost became vita!. "How shall we sing the Lord's song in a strange larid?" It was under these circumstances that a great prophet, Ezekiel, arcs'! in exile to revive all the glory ot the Jewish religious tradition. Boldly and bravely he recounted the course of betrayal and idolatry in which they had renounced God's call ana leadership. He called the people to repentance and faith that led to a glorious restoration. „„..- , Every adult male in Costa Rica __..„.„, „..tern of the Costa Rlcsn election re- < s required to vote.
