M O N D A Y E V E N I N G . MAR. H, 1930. W H A T OTHERS THINK OF t'O.VNKLLSVILL*. Those citizens who havo been wont to complain about the stores of Conn e l l s v i l l e , tho extent, variety and q u a l i t y of tho Hto:k.s, price* and .service? rendered by our merchants, have been r a t h e r mildly rebuked by ;i worn.", a from a distant city many times t 10 size of Comiellsvillo, who ha* supplied Tho (Courier with very pertinent, timely and pointed observations t h a t were prompted by her experiences hero on Dollar Days. That she f o u n d much to commend in our uoves. tho bargains t h a t were offered, t h e i r q u a l i t y and price, and was a r r a c t e d by the beauty of our c h u r c h e s and the n a t u r a l surroundings of t h e t o w n , and t h a t all of these Ihlnios .ire "much to it 1 - credit of the ·own «C OonnellKV-ille." when compared w i t h larpor places, ought to stir our ow:i people to ;.i feeling of pride in what we have. That f e e l i n B ought to impel us to {creator appreciation of and more Intense loyalty to ConnellHVllle, its es- tabllshia'onts unrt institutions. These should bo made the objects of our interested concern, knowing, as we do, tha: their success is vital to tho welfare, prosperity a nil happiness of our people. Tho lestimony v o l u n t a r i l y given by this woman from a distant city re- callH that given by others who have become residents here after living in larger places, and o p p o r t u n i t y has been frivon t h e m to contrast our schools with those f t h e i r . former home cities and towns. In a number of insunces the new residents have been so favorably impressed by the c h a r a c t e r of the school work bcinfi d o n e here, and the progress their cfoildreu make as .students, t h a t they v e r y f r e e l y express t h e i r a d m i r a t i o n to t e a c - i o r s and Crlenda of tho schools. Kor u m t a n e e , a f o r m e r resident of ti Mich can city, r e c e n t l y said that the school:- of Connellsvillc- arc far 1 advanced over those of the peninsula state. Another, from Youngstown, O,, suid a t h i r d f r o m New York City, have borne- e l o q u e n t testimony to the HU- perlor excellence of our schools and t h e i r management as contrastcMl with the m o r e populous centers w h i c h havo been t ! ieir former hotnea. A w Jinan who attended an educa- t i o n a l - o u f e r e a c e in Ohio recently rep o r t s that one of tho instructors in-Red the touchers of t h a t state to m u k o . - i visit to the schools of Con- n(.'l!sv-l:le to «· in actual operation c e r t a i n t.eac'niiu; nu'tluxls t h a t w e r o u n d e r discussion, but had not been a!plk'i in the Buckeye State. Members of the g r a d u a t i o n class at tho Teacher's College at. California last year SDLTU several days In Uiijpectioti of school w o r k in Fayutt.o county. H o t u r n i n g to t h e i r school they re- porletl that the "most, profitable part of t h e i r visit was tho time spent In the schools of Coiiuollsville." Man.-' o t h e r i n s t a n c e s could he cited t h a t h.ive callcil forth e q u a l l y favorable c o m m e n t s by visitors on some phase of l i f o or activities In Conuells- vlllf.

In this fovllnsc out of s e n t i m e n t the farmers In t i n - a4jii(:iMti sections should not be overlooked. This group has toon u n n l t c r a h t y opposcl tn "daylight" rtavinf hy (he clock movinR method. They a l r e a d y are e a r l y risers* -uul .1 Ions work ttay. Whether the plan of gett:ng a still ear!l«r start would be apixsouhle, and possible to be practiced, or whether keeping the clock at shvidard time and leaving the changed hours exclusively to business houses and I n d u s t r i a l establishments, it. would be desirable to know before any general c h a n g e In customs 1. undertaken. Tho gemeril objection of the farm people to th method now in vogue !in some cltl»s is thai: they m u s t get into town in mld-atternoon, before the farm work i r tho day has lem finished, in orier to do th-eir shopping before tlio c'oslng hour at the stores arrives. Th-s ofteti !a a serious inconvenience to the farm schedule and its actual efioct is to prevent :.s frequent visits to. town as nfight ether- wise bo desi ;-able. Th/e I'arnie- has become too i m p o r t ant a factoi in tha business life rf the c o m m u n i t y to be disregarded lu any plan thi't would result in a dis- arraugemonl of his working hours. Another v itiiaWeatiggoKUon of Mayor Minerd i ; that the change would bo conditioned upon I ' n i o n f o w n , Scottdale aiul Mount Pleasant making tho sartn arrangement. The desirability ol general agrer-nient on the proposition is obvious. People who visit sections d u r i n g t h e r.-ti- mer where : he clock-moving nl:in is in operation are f a m i l i a r w i t ' s tli^ i n convenience and confusion t h a t i. experienced. We will wish, above all things, to ui-old similar conditions here, hut Mayor Mineni'c, plan if made a c o m m u n i t y order, w o u l d obviate many if not all of these d i f f i c u l t i e s .

The bride prepares bereelf, dresses carefully, then goes to the kitchen to make 6-ure that the food ie ready and properly cooked. Woll ah« knowe that if things are wrong she, aa tho bride, must acoouiit to the mother-in-law fbr derelictions. When all to ready the Number One Boy goes to the door of master's and mifitresH' bedroom and calls out: "Master! Mistress! It te time to arl*o!" Mother-in-law and father-in-law take their tirm about it but do munagfl to get out ot bed as servants bring in the washbowte for them. Tho waehbowle are placed on separate stools of mas- tor and mistress, who seat themeelv«e on yet other utools to wash their faces --while such servants as are admitted to the bedchamber stand by and watch or hold steaming towele ready against tb.eir iKMHie, Tho houso is overrun with servants. Master and mistress must never exert themselves. There are servants for everything. As I recall it, when I myeel£ became a bride I had 21 servants in my household, most of whom were not only useless but in the way --but T had to have them because it was tho custom. Tha' family repairs for breakfast, which is served on a huge circular tabl-e hare of tablecloth but poliehod until it reflects the faces of thoee seated about it. Breakfast consists of porridge, ham, noodles, soup and tea --always and forever tea! It ia the d u t r of the bride to eoe that the platce of mother-in-law and father-in-law are kept heaping f u l l , after which she must see that all the other in-lawe aro properly eerv-ed. The bride may not cat with the in-laws. She may serve them, and bo eternally and perpetually criticized by them, but must wait until they have finished eating before who lienself may partake of food. Tho whole family ntsea chopsticks. They have napkins, h u g e silken clotHs with clasps at one corner. This clasp fastens in the neck of the gown and Howe over tho chest--so you see that j'our grandfather, of whom possibly you have occasionally been ashamed, has borrowed* tho habit of tucking his napkin Into his collar from a people that ifi very old indeed!

"That it is the further sense of tha Congress of th« tnited Statos that the recognition of tie Union of Soviet Socialist Republic by the United States of Amei ica is incompatibl* with tho traditiors and institutions of the people of the United States, until religious persecution in t h a t country shall have ceaeed.

Th-ua P. W, Wilson, once a member o£ the Britiflli parliament, now an American journaliet and widely-known public speaker, laments what ho terma tho death of oratory, in an article written for the current North American Ileview, At the aarnr time, he declares, "oratory baa bten smothered in a welter of worde " never have so many billions o wordii been epoken with so little thought tehlnd them as today when radio, .llctaphone, luncheon clubs, lecture courses, talking pictures and other modern aids to loquacity havo made speech the cheapcet of commodities. "In earlier centuries a word really cost something, ' he points out. "It uttered, it couM be heard only by a handful of people. If recorded it had to be written bv hand with a pen on parchment or II ion paper, aiwl no mechanical daplicaton was possible. A man Bought before he spoke. Ho thought a thousand timee before ho produced a manuscript." Patronize these wti/ advertise. Soviet government felt itaolf fltrorgly enough entrenche-d or po-.-:«ihly a i ;i lasl re«ort to let looso the 'uric-f of religious tyersecution and s-wk to annihilate all forms of relipioue bc'icf. The fact is that there is an lrrep--e«- fiible conflict, between th-n prin-fnilcs advocated by communifim and a belief in Ood. Communists lioast o' IK ins atheists, and take- pride in wafjing var on God. "Tho attack of. the Soviet govt rti- raent is not merely against the 1 uh- cljijtircli or the Husnlau clergy, but (.rod and upon all who pro'e^a religious belief*. The Commu list party began, in 1329, a relentless c u n - paign to uproot and destroy not - n l y the Orthodox Russian church buf every semblanoo of relitcioue T lief among .lows, Catholics and Prot.en- tants, including the Baptiets vho havo been protected u n t i l rocentlj by the Soviet government. Up to the la/U. "year the Communists did riot interfere with tho reliRkrUf! beliefs beyotid circulating propaganda against religion. The era of propaganda is at an end aad there-exists today dcfcefminediT l i l i - tant persecution of priests and ra^bi« which Is increasing rapidly through- oat Russia. "Article 121 of the Soviet Criminal Code, adopted in 1922, provides '.hat instruction of children and- minor i in religious teachings of faith in ftato or private* educational institution* and schools is punishablety hard laboi up to one year. Thte ho-s been followed up recently by forbidding the teich- ing of religion to children by prestH or ministers and by active athe stic instruction In the public schools. The- schools up to last year were free 1 roni antireligious propaganda, but now are veritable hotbede of atheism. Orlers have gone forth recently to teac io-rs in al! public schools requiring t h e m to instruct tho echool children ot Russia hatred of God ujd of all f rma ol religion and disobedience and xn- UMmpt for their own parents if -Jiey attempt t/o mahitain the faith t t h e i r fathers. Not only is the docfrinj of anti-Chriet mode mandatory in the public schools, but Immorality and vice arc brazenly taught and praciiced among young children.

It ia true, while we claim no right to intei-fero with the internal affairs of Soviet Russia which we. have very properly rt- fueed to recognizo, thero are higher laws of humanity and God which are' the foundations of civilization. "The Government of the Unite*! States i6 willing and ready to formally recognize the Soviet govern nenl whenever satisfactory guarantee!- are offered that the Third Internat orial will cease its insidious propag mda and that payment be made for the property of American citizens confiscated by the Soviet government, and that the loans made by the United States to the- Kereneky governme it be recognized and funded on a fair liaste, and religious persecution shail havo ceased. "We insist anr] demand thai; .here fihall be no attempt to undermine our own form of government by the Red International or by any other fo'oign influence, organization, or go/eminent. If the Oommuniste in America do not like our popular form of government and prefer a dictaterehip over the proletariat by a few Communist politicians without roija'xi to freedom, justice, or demo:racj, let them go back to Russia. "I shall never vote In the Con?res« of the United States to recognize Russia aa long ae the Third International is merely a torch in the hands r C the Russian Communist Party which uses it to sow seeds of class hatred, atheism and to work destruction throughout the world."
