THE TRIBUNE'S PROGRAM FOB TAMPA v The Tribune believes that the highest aim for itself and for the city it serves is to strive throughout 1934 to accomplish for Tampa the economical, social and ethical improvement that President Roosevelt has set as the goal for the nation. Believing And Doing "Whosoever . believeth that Jesus is Christ is born of God." 1 John, 5:1. the Let us not be superficial. One may believe in the historical fact that Jesus was the Christ and born of God, and yet have no belief whatsoever in the Lord Himself. Belief in the history has no saving power. Belief that the Lord was the Son of God as to His body is not sufficient. Real belief in the Lord as the Son of God is the belief that what the Lord said and did was from the Father within" Him and therefore such was the Father's presence with us. Still this alone is not belief. Belief must be riot only mental acknowledgment, but also such belief that impels one to do as the Lord taught and to trust absolutely in so doing. Belief and good works cannot be separated. Everyone does what ' at the time is believed will serve him best. It is a psychologic impossibility to believe one way and act another. Of course, one may know that he is doing wrong, but in doing wrong he is doing what he believes will serve him best at the time and he exalts, wrong above right. Ye cannot serve God and Mammon. 1 Do not be troubled if the love of the Lord does not seem most real and strong. God is loved by loving what is from Him. If one loves the sayings and the life of Lincoln, he would surely love Lincoln were he to meet him. He who loves the sayings of the Lord will certainly love Him when he comes into the ocular pres nce of the Lord. There is no love of the Lord apart from the love of what is from Him, or separated from the love of others, Whatever one desires for another, returns to himself. ding of a British Duke and a Grecian Princess was the social high-light of the year. The federal Department of Justice waged a war of extermination on notorious criminals known as "public enemies," and killed eight desperate leaders of gangdom, headed by the defiant Dillin- ger.

The cloud which darkens our national sky is the continued prevalence of unemployment, of the necessity and demand for public relief of the jobless and the pauperized. The first prayer of our people should be that the New Year may see this cloud dispelled. Tne Pa ssing Year The year that is ending has lacked out-Standing achievements in science, in industry or in human welfare. Mankind generally has been busy trying to regain a normal footing. Recovery has been the slogan in this country, and the New Year dawns on a record of substantial progress in that direction, particularly in business. The national administration has maintained with few amendments its policies and programs of relief and rehabilitation, marred to some extent during the year by disastrous drought and violent strikes. Yet, despite the increasing activity of partisan and selfish criticism and attack, the elections the country over gave the President, the Democratic party and the New Deal an overwhelming vote of confidence and endorsement, a veritable landslide which left comparatively few of the opposing party in office or in Congress, assuring the President undisputed control of the national lawmaking body, to meet in a few days and grapple with unprecedented problems. A picturesque figure passed from the official scene with the retirement of General Hugh Johnson as head of the NRA. That feature of the re covery program is slated for a general revision, with a view to its permanency as an arm of federal government. : In foreign lands, rumors and threats of war kept the public mind in a state of ex citement; and the League of Nations scored a point by actually 'averting hos tilities in two menacing international fcrises. Hitler and Mussolini continued to reign, the former dealing death to chal - lengers of his dictatorship. Assassination removed one King and accident another and the Chancellor of Austria fell, victim of political murderers. The royal wed- A War Going Wrong A war that never ends that is waged unceasingly in which there is never an armistice the war between Safety and Carelessness. Casualty figures in this war, just published, show that Carelessness has been the winner this year 36,000 killed in traffic accidents. An increase of 16 percent over last year; the army of Carelessness gaining steadily and alarmingly on the army of Safety. One killed every 15 minutes; one injured every 31 seconds. An appalling record of dead and wounded victims of this war which never ends! In every sector where the conflict is waging, a higher death-rate. Vainly have the forces of Safety planned and fought to turn the tide of battle. s It may be said that all these casualties were not inflicted by Carelessness but there are few exceptions it's always the inattention and lack of caution of the victim or of the "other fellow" in driv ing or in taking proper care of the car, sometimes of road builders or inspectors. 4The only way to change the trend of this war, to give the advantage to life over death, is for all citizens, all drivers, all officials, to get out and stay out of the army of Carelessness and enlist in the army of Saf tey. And that is a matter of personal duty and responsibility which, as has been well established, cannot materially be affected by law. With more law restric tions, safer cars, better roads, Careless ness goes on winning the war! Ten Best Pictures The Film Daily makes public the result of its annual poll for the 10 best motion 'pictures of the year. This year 424 newspaper film critics participated in the choice, and the picture leading the list received the highest vote on record 48 of the 424 "members of the jury" voting for "The Barretts of Wimpole Street." The nine other selections, in the order of preference, are "The House of Roth' schild," "It Happened One Night," "One NiPht of Love." "Little Women." "The BOOKS AND BOOKMEN By E. D. Lambright Strange Case of Local Man's Paternal Parent A friend of ours in Beach Park has a dog and he has to keep it shut up, but we didn't know why until Christmas, when some other mutual friends came out and we were speaking about pets, and they told us why. They have a neighbor who has a' cat, and he protested that the dog would chase his cat,-and he particularly ob jected to having this cat chased, he in formed them, because this cat's body houses the soul of his dead father, Being deeply interested in religion, we asked our friends if the man is a Bud dhist, but they didn't know any more about the man and his father's trans migration. All they knew was what he had told our friend with the dog. Our friend with the dog, being a well-disposed gentleman, not wanting his dog to run a neighbor's father's soul ragged, agreed to 'confine the dog. So yesterday we sent the Gleam's star reporter and misinformation-gatherer, Little Miss Knittwitt, out to interview the reincarnated father and his son. She got the story but overlooked the little detail of getting the names. When she knocked, the son opened the door and introduced himself as Nicholas Stuyvesant Vanderwhich, Jr., or whatever the name is, and oiiered her a chair. "Oh, Mr. Vanderwhich," she ex claimed, "I would so love to meet your father. Is he at home?" "Yes," he replied, courteously, turning toward the upright piano. "Miss Knitt witt, allowed me to present my father, Mr. Vanderwhich." At which Mr. Vanderwhich, Sr., yawned, stood up on top of the piano, humped his back, stretched, knocked a glass vase onto the floor, and jumped into the lady's lap, purring. "Oh," she exclaimed, "Isn't he sweet! So affectionate." "Yes," said his son, "that's what got him into the shape he is in now. If he keeps on, I'm afraid his next metemp sychosis will be in the form of a mouse." "Eek!" she exclaimed. "Why, what do you mean?" "it s divine retribution, the young man frankly explained. "In his previous existence, Dad was a gay dog, chasing chickens, and of a generally predatory nature. So he was turned into a cat to be chased, as punishment. But he still likes the ladies. And he still stays out nights with the other cats. "Really!" she exclaimed, petting Mr. N. Stuyvesant Vanderwhich, Sr., who was washing his left hind foot with his tongue.

Reynal & Hitchcock, New York, $1.50. Mary Poppins is the tiame of the nursemaid who came on a high east wind to take care of the four Banks children living in Cherry-Tree Lane. They lived in a rather dilapidated house which needed a coat of paint, because Mr. Banks, who owngd it, said to Mrs. Banks that she could have either a nice, clean comfortable house or four children. But not both, for he couldn't afford it. And after Mrs. Banks had given the matter some consideration, she came to the conclusion that she would rather have Jane, who was the oldest, Michael, who came next, and John and Barbara, who were the twins and came last of all. Mary Poppins was the "great exception." She came without references and demanded every other Thursday off from one to six, because she said that was what the very best families gave. Then after a long, loud sniff that Indicated she had made up her mind: "I'll take the position." "For all the world," as Mrs. Banks said to her husband later, "as though she were doing us a signal honor." She became supreme ruler over the nursery. Out of a carpet bag that the children themselves saw was empty she took seven flannel nightgowns, four cotton ones, a pair of boots, a set of dominoes, two bathing caps and a postcard album. The first night she put them to bed she gave all of them medicine out of the same bottle. Michael's was straw berry ice, Jane's was lime-juice cordial, and then Mary Poppins poured herself a dose. As she corked the bottle she an nounced that hers was rum punch. Mary Poppins talked with the wind, the birds, the animals, and even put old ferocious Admiral Boom, who lived next door, in a cage at the zoo and had the tiger prod him gently with a stick to make him swear and roar to entertain the other animals. . The author, Miss P. L. Travers, Is a young Irish woman who began inventing stories for a tiny sister at a very early age and has just gone on doing it. Mary Poppins, she says, is probably made up from all the "Nannies" she had in Australia, where she was born, and in the British Isles, to which she came as she was growing up. Like "Peter Pan" and "Alice in Won derland," "Mary Poppins" is probably intended for children, but is delightful read ing for grown-ups. M. C. Musical Murder. DEATH IN B-MINOR." Bv Jean Lillv. E. P. Dutton & Co., New York, $2. Liszt's "Sonata in B-Minor" is being played in the music room, when Benja min Whipple, host at a week-end party, falls dead in the living room. It developed that Whipple's many af filiations with art, society and sport in volved him in mortal dancer. At his party, among his guests, were those who desired his death. There were those who wished to use him, those he wished to use. , From this background, the author works out a fascinating mvsterv. This is a Dutton "Clue Mystery" and "Recommended by the Secret Six." Milder Drinks. 'A NEW DEAL IN LIQUOR." By Yan- dell Henderson. Doubleday, Doran & Co.. New York, $2. This book is "A Plea for Dilution" of strong drink.. Based upon "An Inquiry into the Effects of Ardent Spirits Upon the Human Body and Mind," written by Dr. Benjamin Rush 150 years ago, this author pleads for milder beverages, asserting that the system of taxation of the American government has fostered the use of strong liquors and that American ad diction to strong drink is mainly due to this policy of the national government. He urges that Americans be encour aged to use "relatively harmless alcoholic beverages," as do the people of France, Germany and England. The book . hr eludes "A Moral and Physical Ther mometer," which shows cheerfulness, strength and nourishment as the results of drinking cider, wine, porter and beer, while all the evils from idleness to murder come from rum, brandy and whiskey, Many Floridians will spend much of their time the next three months worrying about what the Legislature may do.

She instinctively slapped the old fellow, and he jumped down, and she jumped up, and somehow stepped on his tail. He yowled. "Oh, I'm so sorry, Mr. Vanderwhich! she exclaimed. He yowled some more.
