Meditation Let'-ho evil talk come out of your mout,hs, but only such as is good for cditylng, as fits the occasion, that it may impart grnre to those who hear. Ephesians 4:29. • • • « Is someone wiser, bel<<r or haplrter tor having hud conversation wilh you? Old-Fashioned Villain • Vito Mai-cnntonio, left-wing American Labor Party congressman from New York, has come oul for a third party. One reason it's needed, he says, is because the "big trusts'/ are drivinK the nation to war. . The statement is reminiscent of Henry Ford's insistence that 'international bankers" started the last war. Mr. ,'Marcantomo and the late Mr. Ford never played in the same political league, and the present similarity of views is rather incongruous. But Mr. Marcantonio has his prob- lews- He can't blame the Fascists for a coming war, because the Fascists were defeated in the last one. He can't blame it on the dictators so long as Mr. Stalin sits in the Kremlin. So lie is forced to fall back on that old' demon,. Wall Street. For a militant breast-boater like Mr. Marcantonio, this is positively old-fashioned But perhaps the party ^ line is entwined with lavender and old lace these days. Amateur Theatricals Perhaps the secret of the Howard Hughes Investigation fiasco is that Senators Fergtison and Brewster were too impatient to get into senatorial show .business. If that is the case it wouldn't be\ the first .time, for show business has a way of looking glamorous and co'mparitivcly easy from the outside. • Moreover, Messrs. Ferguson and Brewster had had a little experience themselves. Even though all Capitol :IIill production had been in the hands of the ^Democrats for 14 years, the Republican minority could sit in on rehearsals and even make a few suggestions. So' it was not unnatural that the • senators from Michigan and Maine were anxious to put on a show of their own. It probably seemed to them that they had the makings of a smash hit. They had financial backing, script, and ...,.they had picked a cast with some good ~, r " box-office names. Furthermore, there ., was the chance of a good publicity break, for the adjournment of (Jon. . gress had removed the most serious local .competition. But the new producers made some pretty bad mistakes. First of all, their promotional campaign wasn't too smart. They gave the show a circus-type build-up before they knew what they really had. O n- sequently, much of the promised excitement, thrills and suspense didn't come off. They a i so ] lacl altogether too much the script. Any experienced showman would have called in a goorl play doctor early in rehearsal to do a wholesale job of cutting, rearranging and rewriting. As things turned out, nolxxiy was .quite sure what the show was all about. It had a line of girls. It had a , fat comedian. It had a great many elements of drama. But was it supposed -• «-t^ be a serious war play, a metodrama- - .tie thriller, a revue, or what? It was '--^-i**^* 11 The characters were so , J*»Hy drawn that it never became quite clear who was supposed to be the „ hero and who the villain. Artother obvious mistake was "opeii- / „ ins: coM" jn the big town. If the pro, Queers had'followed the Broadway cus- tr y iR * <** tbeir show in some i !•*•« as Wilmington or New Ha- ven, they might have seen the need for more rehearsals and revisions and been able to patch it vip before (he renl opening. As it was, they rang up the first cm-lain in Washington,' The first-string critics were in the aisle seats, surrounded by n liard-to-please audience' of first-nighters'. The reviews were generally bad, which seemed to upset the producers. In the face of all this, it is quite a wonder thai the show managed to run even for 12 performances. This isn't the first flop in senatorial show business, of course. And some of the Democratic colleagues of Senators Ferguson and Brewsler might be accused of unkindness for rubbing it in. It might be recalled that the public witnessed a few turkeys when the Democrats were running the House Un-American Activities Committee. VIEWS OF OTHERS Scientific Training For Game Wardens Tlic training codrsc which the University of Arkansas Department of Zoology. 1ms instituted for game wardens advance ill scientific, practical government administration. This program is part of the state Game and Fish Commission 1 .'; long-standing purpose to keep Its activities free of politics. The wnrdens will receive instruction in the fundamentals of conservation. They will learn the basic biological principles, and be shown how those principles apply In detail to Arkansas. They will have thei knowledge for performing their work more efficiently. This program is facilitated by the Tact that the professor of boology Is ex-offielo member of the Gnmc and pish Commission. The commission's activities can thus be readily co-ordi- nated with the department's and receive the benefits of the department's research and counsel and teaching. Prof. s. C. Delllnger, who hns served on the commission for many years, has planned the' training course from the viewpoint of both the natural scientbt and the practical field worker who Is u layman. A game warden, , equipped for his duties by s[>cciftl training, can expect his Job to be more secure than it would be under a system giving weight to political influence, stabilized employment for qualified men will speed conservation. We shall be making greater progress In the protection of wildlife by emphasizing educational preparation for the enforcement officers. Arkansas lias made spectacular advances In conservation since the commission was created. It stands to gain more in efficient use of funds by continuing to !>ermit the commission to pursue its work purely on a scientilic basis. The state might profit if programs similar to the ne\V training course were inaugurated for other employes whose work requires specialized instruction. If Arkansas ever develops its state park system, as would be desirable, the park employes should have training In natural history and recreation at the University of Arkansas. The university could assist state agencies on a much greater scale than It has m the past. , i J *V 1 gg —ARKANSAS GAZETTE Truman Appeals to Conscience In Effort to Aid Europe's DPs Eyes of Many Nations Foci/sec/ on Argentine During Inter-American Conference Sessions By PETER EDS ON NBA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON, Aug. 22. (NEA1 —At the inter-American Conference In Rio de Janeiro, there will be a lot of diplomatic lingo about unanimous agreements^ vetoes, sanctions, procedures nnd such stuff which will be hard to read and considerably duller than the Brcwstcr- Hiighes brawl. But there is one thing American newspaper reader. 1 ; will be able to get from even the most superficial following of the news from Brazil. That will be how the Argentine delegation behaves. This Rio conference has been put off for more than two year: •s for Argentina was invit FrnnCisco conference the single reason that the aovcrn- ment'-of'President .Juan TJ Pcron has been on probation in tbe eyes of all other American republics. The Argentine government was the only one of these countries present at the Mexico City conference in March, 1915. The Act of Chapultepec was drawn' up at this conference, it recommended the drafting of a treaty ^o ptor! acts of aggression asain.<it any American country by six lines of action, ranging from mild to stronr: Recall of ambassadors: severing diplomatic relations; breaking ofl consular relations; cutting off postal, wire and radio communications; ending trade and banking relations, and the use of nrim-d force. ARGENTINA ASKKI> TO JOIN After the Act of Chapultepec WAS agreed to. March 3. 1945. the other American republics decided to np- peal to Argentina to change its BARBS policies, join Declaration of the UN, and adhere to the Act of Chapultepec. On March 27, 1945, Argentina declared war on Japan, primarily, • and on Germany, secondarily, merely because the Nazis happened to be partners of the Japs. The Pcron government also agreed to the Act of Chapultepec On tills basis, ed to the San :e and became a charter member of the HN. But the Argentines never did sign the Declaration of the United Nations. It has been evasive performance of this kind and talk'out of botb sides of the mouth that has made the Argentine suspect in the United States and delayed the Rio conference until now. '• Officially, the U. S. and Argentine governments have patched things up. President Truman accepted the resignations of both Assistant Secretary of State Spruille Braden, who didn't like Peron, nnd Ambassador George Messersmith, who did. That doesn't mean that either the Braden or the Messersmith policy is now being followed. It merely means that the President wanted to make a fresh start with ;i new team under Secretary of Stale George Marshall. The new team is led by Norman Armour in Braden's place and James Bruce — an ex-milk company executive and a diplomatic unknown — in Messersmilh's job at Buenos Aires. 1KUJI1I.E-TALK l-'KOM THE PAMPAS In the meantime, double-talk United Nations., from the Argentine is still heard declare war on the Axis, r,:gn the I On July Peron made a big speech which every Argentine radio station and newspaper hart to carry,' every citizen was supposed to read or listen to every upper grade school kid was supposed to write themes on. •Among other high-sounding ut- lernnces, Peron said that the Argentine's "spiritual and material resources had been mobilized for peace We Argentines believe that the countries which suffered so horribly In the war have a right to a better life." Well, look at the record. The Argentine was not a member of UNRRA and contributed nothing to it, though it did sell over $20 million worth of supplies to other countries which did support UN- RRA. The Argentine has never joined the International Food and Agriculture Organization. It only observed. On the clay of Feron's speech, the Argentine Minister of Foreign Affairs and Worship sent a note to Secretary of State Marshall. It has just been made public. It is full of pious declarations about adhering to pacifist principles. Secretary | Marshall has just replied politely, in effect, that this is dandy. But the thing to watch at tr v ? Rio conference and after is how well the Peron government lives up to these principles. *If the United States starts pouring out arms, loans and other assistance as .demanded, without full guarantees on what is to be done in return for these favors, it is most apt to be* played for a sucker. This guy still needs watching. Sunday School Lesson BY WILLIAM H. GIKROY, !>.. P. There are certain things, according to the Book ol Proverbs, that arc "abomination to the Lord." Among (hose are "a false balance" (11.1), and "lying lips" (12:22). Whatever the Lord abominates is bad for man. The dishonest or lying person sins against Ills fellowman, as well as against his Maker. Society depends for its very existence, as well as for its welfare arid security, ui>on honesty In daily life and its relationships. The fact that so many people are honest enables society to go on, and it is because so many people arc dishonest that we have so 'many menacing problems and so little world security. Honesty begins with the individual in more ways than one. It has its rise and beginning in honesty with die's self. Many |>cople are not honest with themselves. They live in u world of illusion, or of self- delusion. The dishonest man would despise himself if he faced up honestly to what he actually is. .He avoids that by the alibi that "other pcop|c do it," "you can't do business and he * honest," and similar bywords of the weak. A man has to settle with, his own mind and that will what sort of man he is going to be—a man of in-, tcgrity, or a cheater and grafter. According to that decision he will be an asset to society, or a parasite, living upon and robbing others, no matter by what polite legal fiction his action may be covered. When Zaechaeus, the Jewish tax- gatherer, who climbed into a tree to see Jesus ami climbed down to receive the Master as his self-invited guest, heard the Master's declaration, "his day is salvation come to this house," he stood and said, "If I have taken anything from any man by false accusation, >I restore him fourfold." That was the portion that a convicted thief was by Jewish law under obligation to restore, so that Zaechaeus was saying, in.effect, "If I have grafted in my office (as its very nature made it easy and tempting to do) I've been a thief." . . That plain sort of honesty with himself was the sure evidence of the reality of Zaechaeus' conversion. In-a somewhat different way the Prodigal Son's salvation began when he "came .to himself," and was honest with himself. So, honesty, like charity, begins at home; but like charity it does not stay there. It reaches exit into every sperc and relatioiishipof life And it is the only-basis upon which life can be- sound and wholesome, mid even safe. Only today I have been reading a list of the names and. offenses ol firms prosecuted under the-fod oan;l drug law. Ap-' pallingly, it contains the names'of some of the best known firms hi the country, emphasizing how much the very food that we eat and the drugs we use depend upon the simple integrity of those who .produce them. Honesty is our deepest need. • , By JOHN L. STEEMJ (United Press Staff Correspondent) WASHINGTON, Aug. 22.

Instead, both Mr. Truman am Secretary of Stale George C. Marshall were reported determined t< wage a bitter-end fight to get Con gress .to accept their view that tli, U.
