Church Women Hear Head of State Council in a special message to the BlythevIHe Council of Church Women »t th« M«y Fellowship D«y program In the First Christian Church Lht» morning MM. E J. Rauschkolb, *taU preildent, of North Little Rock, compared Chris- tlan living to the building of a "house beautiful." Mrs, Rauscholdkolb based her message on the conflict. between .spiritual and utilitarian modes of life. R>r « spiritual life she pointed out that the sordid, cheap and undesirable aspects of society must be dUcarded, and that lives should not be so full or various activities that there was no time life to cultivate a soul. Your spirlutal "house beautiful." must be located where the temporal things are secondary to the heavenly things, Mrs. Rauschkolb said. Mrs. Rauschkolb, dedicating her message to the mothers In the audience and mothers of those present, emphasized the need of a good foundation. "Your home life Is reflected In your children," she said. A living room that Is full of love, kindness and an understanding between parent and child; a guest room where Christian living can be contagious, and an attic to store memories are all a vital part of your "House Beautiful", she declared. Even the trash heap is important, she said. Many things need to be destroyed and burned as rubbish. She compared the garden to the Sabbath, saying peace and inspiration must not be replaced by weeds, such as cheap books, cheap movies, and jazz. In conclusion she pointed out that the group of churches represented were working toward a world church, so that "House Beautiful" may been seen everywhere as a decent place to live. All 26 councils in Arkansas, and councils throughout the United States, and several foreign countries are celebrating May Fellowship Day, today.

(UP) — The Atlanta Journal today received a distinguished service in journalism award from the University of Missouri. j Five Journalists and a national picture magazine received similar awards during the University of Missouri's 39th annual Journalism Week. The awards, based upon records of performance over many years, were presented by Dean P. U Mott of the School of Journalism. The awards went to: David C. H. Lu, correspondent of AVIATION FRIDAY, MAY T, 1948 tlon is regard*! by some as still In It* infancy, 'that Infant hac grown Into a pretty big boy." The law in tomt Instance* has kept pace with that growth, h« said. The current st»t« law dow not hold the pilot totally responsible for all mishaps as old laws did, he pointed out. Whether or not a pilot was neg- ligtnt M now a major consideration in determining liability In air ac- cldenU and aviation law violations, Mr. Wright said. Trftt'ol Cfcrrien Explained Mr. Wright also discussed wherein liability rests when an aircraft own«r stores or parks hi* airplane in th« care of a flying service or other airfield operating agency. The service or agency would be held lla- bl« only when accidents or damage occurs due to direct negligence on the part of the operator, he said. He also explained the difference between common carriers, such as air lines, and private or contract carriers, such as charter flying services. Common carriers operate on fixed schedules along stated routes, he said. The legal test to determine the difference between the types of carriers Is the degree to which they will fly for hire all persons or goods given them for transportation, limited only by the amount of space available, he explained. During the business session of last night's meeting, the BPPA members discussed plans for furnishing and ie-decora.ting the Transient Pilots' Lounge. It was announced that the Association will stage a "surprise" breakfast night Sunday, May 23. On this type of flight, the destination is unknown by participating pilots until they open sealed maps after they are airborne. Plans for participation of Blytheville pilots hi the annual Arkansas Air Tour next month also were discussed.
