United Church Canvass "But- this I say, be which sow- sparingly shall reap also and he which soweth shall reap also boun- tifnuy Every man according: an he purpweth In his heart, so let klm e«v«, not prudKlngly or of necessity for God loveth a cheer- 'lul K>v«r." These words from the Second Letter to the Corinthians, IX Chapter, VI Verse, are deserving of special attention on this, toe eve of the United Church Canvass in Naugatuck. Loyalty Sunday, it has been called, a day when the Council of Churches requests that all Protestant -families attend services and later make welcome a Church Council canvasser in their homes. The imminence of the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons should recall strongly to mind the power of prayer and the importance of religion in the community, just as they have been powerful influences on the universe from the beginning of time. Let tomorrow's demonstrations of faith and willingness to support its proponents be strictly In keeping with the joyous spirit of the holidays ahead. Canvassers will visit every Protestant home in Naugatuck tomorrow as part of the Every- Member Canvass being conducted on a state-wide basis. They will receive contributions in the name of the Council of Churches. Moreover, they will be prepared to dls- _ cuss church problems and affairs as representatives of the ministers of the several Protestant churches. Not in our words, but in the words from Luke VI. Verse XXXVUI: ."Give and It shall be given unto you; Good measure pressed down and .shaken together and run- nine ever shall men give unto your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal shall tt be measured to ye again. Chinese Die Young Most Chinese die before they are 30 years old. This is perhaps the mast important single fact for Americans who would understand China. And it is perhaps, despite its simplicity, the hardest to comprehend. • People who are doomed by malnutrition and lack of hygiene simply cannot think or act. like fortunate Americans. To ask, for instance, why the Chinese do not have a government like that of this country is like asking why people clamoring for bread do not eat cake. Most Americans, if they are forced to choose between security and freedom, will choose freedom. But if they were asked to choose between freedom and dying at 25, .their decision would be modified considerably. • That is the stark decision that faces the Chinese. Basically, they may love their freedom as much as any American does. But they have other things on their minds —and very little on their stomachs. Freedom is a chimera to men who expect to die soon after adolescence. Class feeling* are easier to appeal to where -there is the sort of abject hunger Americans can- nof:«ven imagine. The man who hai? [to*eat hamburger usually doesn't bate the man who eats guin«fc: hen under glass. He may, in fact, prefer hamburger. But-to s«e others eating a square meal is almost a personal insult to the man who isn't sure of getting a handful of rice a day. From the midst of American plenty, it seema as if millions of ChitUbae people had "chosen" communism. They haven't. But it is difficult to understand anything about China unless the fact is constantly kept in mind that they dp not want to die before' they are 30. They aren't sure the communists can feed them, but they apparently have painted the most attractive pictures of food. Flight Of The Colleges Youth turning eagerly to colleges and universities as gateways to a fuller life little realizes the headaches of those who run them. College and university financing throughout the country is generally in parlous state, with prospects darkening rather than growing brighter. A "pilot" study of 50 leading institutions .under the. auspices of the Association of American Universities has resulted in disclosures so alarming that the Rockefeller Foundation has granted ,««0,000 and the Carnegie Foundation $50,000 for an exhaustive study of how higher education now and in the future needs to be financed. Small liberal arts colleges, Church affiliated institutions and state colleges and universities in the poorer states seem today to be hardest hit. Teachers' salaries have been increased, building construction and maintenance are higher, and despite Increased tui- tions, when educational cost has soared in price inflation from 50 to 100 per cent, a great many budgets are not balanced and institutions are operating with deficits. Endowment yield in 42-cent dollars, even with interest rotes static, provides a smaller fraction of operating coat. What makes the picture worse is that the preliminary study, also sponsored by the Rockefeller Foundation, indicated that the average endowment yield had shrunk in the 18 years between 183O-31 and 1945-46 from an average of 5.37 to 2.74 per cent. When the time comes for bond refunding a still lower average la looked for. Of some of these things the public doubtless has been aware, but scarcely of the fact cited by Dr Henry W. Wriston, president of Brown University, who likewise is head of the Association of American Universities, that the colleges get a smaller fraction of all philanthropic contributions than they formerly did. At the moment the student in the hard-hit institutions gets less in education and services than previously because classes are larger and laboratories are crowded. Unless the situation changes, Dr. Wriston, speaking as an individual, fears a "watering down" of higher education. He advocates having tax laws changed so that larger contributions be tax exempt. Also, he would concentrate more on learning and less on huge stadia and elaborate and costly academic buildings and dormitories. Chinese name for spinach is "It 1 !? 1 " and many Americans call it names equally bad. Britain Is reducing Its expenditures .which seems about the only place there Is any saving for the American taxpayer. Do You Remember? On* Year Ago The Rev. Donald C.
