PAGE FOUR THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE and LOGANSPORT PRESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA Editorial THE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS ALL YEAR'ROUND Have you noticed how much happier everyone has been during the Christmas season? Hearts are lighter, steps are springier, and smiles are brighter as -X,ogansport shoppers hear and see evidences of the Yuletide on every hand. It all adds up to what we call "Christmas spirit." It is'the spirit that led Cass county organizations to provide food baskets and gifts for needy families. It is the spirit that led Cass county citizens to donate more than 1,800 Christmas gifts to Longcliff patients they had never seen. It is the spirit that led one local group of young men to- take more than 100 needy youngsters on a shopping tour so they could experience the joy of Christmas giving. But what will have happened to that Christmas spirit three months, two months, or even one month from now? Will it flicker and go out like a Christmas candle, or will it continue to shine as brightly as the star of Bethlehem which heralded the birth of the Christ child? Will we prove by our words and actions day after day, 'week after week, and month. after month that we truly believe all men are broth• ers—children of one God? Let us firmly resolve to keep the Spirit of Christmas alive and glowing during every day of the coming year! YOUNG PEOPLE PROVE THEMSELVES The compassion and altruism which the young people of Cass county have shown in numerous ways in recent months indicate that our community is likely to be in good hands in the years to come. Logansport high school students, the Galveston Sunshine club, and the Walton Order of the Rainbow for Girls are among the groups that have entertained patients at the Logansport state hospital. Various local high school groups, particularly the Key club and the Hi-Y, have carried on charitable activities throughout the year. The Hi-Y contributes $100 each year for the Buildings of Brotherhood program, helping young people overseas; it collects food baskets for the needy both for Thanksgiving and Christmas, buys Christmas gifts for Longcliff patients, and, in cooperation with the Y's Men, gives a scholarship to a needy graduate each year. It also has helped in collections for the blind. The Key club recently gave a benefit dance for a young heart patient, gave its annual -Christmas party at the Orphans home, and washed windshields at various times to promote blood donations. The High School Art club gave its annual dinner party for the children at the Kleinman Children's home, and the Hi-Tri provided food for the needy. These are only part of the many activities our young people can point to with pride. It is evident that the vast majority of them are mighty fine citizens.

We II serve the root beer with the fish and the milk shakes with the turkey!" GEORGE E. SOKOLSKY CHRISTMAS 1961 The characteristic greeting of the peoples of the East is "sho- lom," expressed in various dia-. lects, "sholom" or. "salaam" is not "good morning." It is peace. It "is pax. It represents the most urgent need of the- peoples who lived in the deserts of Palestine and all the countries thereabouts. JESUS WAS not a military hero like Alexander; he was not a rich man like Croesus;-he was not a great politician like Caesar or a combination of all these men like Constantino. He was a poor man who wandered among other poor men and women and preached peace, not only peace of the soul, but peace among nations. That was during the -first century, as we count time, and peace has not come to 'mankind despite his preaching and the enormous fol-. lowing that he developed. And .that is most interesting: men say they believe, but usually they do not trouble to know what they believe. And so millions call themselves Christians but do not believe in anything that Jesus preached or even know what he preached. They call themselves Christians and wear a crucifix on their clothes as a mark of belonging but the two principal moral doctrines of Christianity, namely, peace on earth and love thy neighbor as thyself, they neither attempt to understand nor to practice. And the few who do attempt 'to live according to the ideals of Jesus are ridiculed as, for instance, Francis of Assisi was ridiculed 'all his life by lesser men who held higher posts and wore more decorative costumes. LURING THESE nearly two thosuand years that men and women have followed the teachings of Jesus, there have been very few Christians upon this earth and among those who described themselves as such there were few who either thought as he did or lived up to his preachments. And so here we are in the year 1961 and we are again in the midst of war, wasting our produce and our earnings on war, on meaningless, purposeless war. Here we are hating as human beings have never hated before. Even in our own country we are torn by hatred, one group for another, one race for another, one religion for another. Hatred seems to prevail in our minds and our hearts because how would we assert our superiority if hatred did not give us stature and posture. WHO IS GREATER than another if all are smaller than God? It is puzzling that men and women kneel and .pray and imagine themselves so superior to all upon this earth when the very act of prayer is an acknowledgement that all are equal in the eyes of God. The birthday of Jesus can be celebrated as a holiday of beauty, of love, of universal faith by Christians and non - Christians alike if once we forget and forego hatred and the contempt of superiority by those who are given the Nobel Prize. Or perhaps' a measure might be found in sheer goodness, such as, in our times, we witnessed in Leo Tolstoy or Gandi or Dr. Schweitzed or Dr. Dooley. Who knows where a violet will seed itself or a star will appear in the heavens? But this we do know: it is difficult to live up to an ideal of truth and love and a life without hatred. And- most do not try at all. ON THIS PEACEFUL day when I quietly contemplate the coming of Christmas and the peaceful life of the Jew, Jesus, I receive a letter from a reader, John J. Keenan of New York, who says: "It is superfluous to speak of a Judaic-Christian heritage. Judaism should have ceased to exist with the coming of Christ; but in the hardness of your tribe it vainly seeks for a political Messiah who would rule over 'the stupid Goyim'." And as a gift to celebrate the birth of him who loved peace and his fellowman and who could forgive evil, he sends me a little pamphlet of narrow hatred, "The Rulers of Russia," by Rev. Denis Fahey. And I have no prejudice against this confused pamphlet because I know such a one as Cardinal Spellman, who is ihe THE SUNDAY PHAROS-TRIBUNE LOGANSPORT PRESS .Published eacli Sunday by the Pharos-Tribune and Press, BIT E.

Douglas, down to Washington to head up the SEC's reorganization division. Later, Joe persuaded Roosevelt to appoint Douglas as an SEC commissioner. \ By this time the President's father had left the SEC and James Landis had become chairman. By this time also, a terrific battle had developed inside the SEC over cracking down on Wall Street. Some of the old fervor for being tough on Wall Street had evaporated. Therefore, when Landis left the commission to become Dean of the Harvard law school, opposition developed against Douglas as his successor. So Douglas, with an invitation to return to the Yale law school, was about to leave town. In fact, he was all packed and about to catch- the 10 a.m. train, when he got a phone call from Joe Kennedy.
