Human Resources If a mere code of morals, or a better phHosophy of life were sufficient to overcome alcoholism, ninny of us would have recovered long ago. Rut we found such codes and philosophies did not save us, no matter :how much we tried. We could wish to be moral, we could wish to he philosophically comforted, in fact, we could will these things with all our might, but the needed power wasn't there. Our human resources, as marshalled by the will, were not sufficient. They failed uttc/ly. Lack of power, that was our dilemma. We had to fuid a power by which we could live, and it had to be a power greater than ourselves, obviously. But where and how were we going to find this power? To one who feels he's an atheist or agnostic, such an experience seems impossible, but to continue as he is means disaster—to be doomed to an alcoholic death or In live on a spiritual basis. We have shared his honest doubt about prejudice. Some of us have been violently anti-religious. We found thai God docs not make too hard terms with-those who seek Him. To us, (he realm of spirit is broad, roomy, all inclusive, never exclusive or forbidding. « To those who seek, it is open, we believe to all men. We neec' to ask ourselves but one question, "Do I now believe or urn I ever willing In believe, lhal there is a power greater than myself?" As soon as a man can say that he does believe or is willing to believe, we emphatically assure him he is on his way. It has been repeatedly proven among us that upon this simple cornerstone a wonderful effective spiritual structure can be built. If interested write Box 87,'). Hlythevillc. Ark.

LOUIS WV — Supreme Courl Justice William O. Douglas says the "only assurance" for peace in the jittery, troubled Middle East is "to make Israel stronger" by sending American arms.

Burger, the Parris Islsnd base commander, said the night trek was unauthorized.
