GOOD NEWS This language consists of a vocabulary most easily understood by English- speaking people regardless of their educational level. It is the work of Dr. Robert Bratcher, a South- Come September, the "Good News Bible" will be published in this country, using the so- called "common language." A UTHORIZED KING JAMES VERSION The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness lor his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou prepares* a table before me in the presence of mine enemies; thou anointestmy head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever. era Baptist, aided by translators from the American Bible Society, who employed the principle of "dynamic equivalence" in their translation. The result conveys the mean- of the original Biblical text rather than the words. The effectiveness of the technique may be judged by comparing these two versions of the 23 M Psalm: MIL. The telephone Utll company in New York decided to save money by charging 10 cents for local information calls. As a result, Bell Telephone is losing about $700,000 this year. Customers, in order to avoid paying for information calls, are ordering telephone directories. To date they have been ordering the free directories in such volume that the phone company has spent $2.3 million on the books. In addition, the company has had to refund 30 cents a month to those subscribers who make no information calls. That cost another $2.2 million per. month. If things keep up this way, the phone company will have to charge for telephone directories and fire more operators. FOOD STAMP RATIONALE "At a time when ap- of the 210 million people who live in this country are receiving some kind of Food Stamp assistance -most of 'them paying for part of those stamps -- if we did not have that, we would have a social revolution in the United States. What would be the situation in areas like Detroit and other areas of high unemployment if it were not for the fact that people at least can feed their families, thanks to this program?" --Sen. George McGovern (D., S. Dak.), addressing the U.S. Senate, April 7,1976. PAVING THE LONG MARCH One of China's most historic routes is being paved so that the followers of Mao Tse-tung can take "The Long March." which Mao and Chou En-lai took 42 years ago. In 1934, Mao and 100,000 of his partisans retreated from the Kuomintang troops of Chiang Kai-shek. Under the most incredible hardships, the Communists walked a total of 6250 miles, approximately the round-trip distance between New York and Los Angeles. They crisscrossed 12 Chinese provinces and when they finally reached Yenan, fewer than 20,000 of the original 100,000 Maoists had survived. GffiALD FORD SPEAKS "Let me say as emphatically and strongly as I can: I have no intention of being a candidate for any office --President, Vice-President, or anything else-in 1976."--Oct. 13, 1973. "I' 11 probably be a candidate in 1976. "--Aug. 28, 1974. "I am going undoubtedly, without question of a be a candidate."--Feb. 28, 1975. 'GOOD NEWS BIBLE' VERSION The Lord is my shepherd; I have everything I need. v He lets me rest in fields of green grass; he leads me to quiet pools of fresh water. He gives me new strength; he guides me in the right way as he has promised. Even if that way goes through deepest darkness, I will not be afraid. Lord, because you are with me; your shepherd's rod and staff keep me safe. You prepare a banquet for me where all my enemies can see me; you welcome me by pouring ointment on my head and filling my cup to the brim. Certainly your goodness and love will be with me as long as I live; and your house will be my house for ever. 20 YEARS AGO: JAMES MASON, WIFE PAMELA AND CHILDREN PORTLAND NOW 26 AND MORGAN, NOW 20 Pamela Mason.
