Yet, together, they have built a ma- china that easily disposes of problems beyond the power of human solution. Brilliant men also devised the atomic bomb. Now s menus of saving the human race from the product of its own ingenuity seems beyond the power of man's mind. If only the scientists could put wires and tubes together into a superhuman brain that could Bolve that problem. Public Help for a Public Problem This year the American people are being asked for the first time to contribute to the fight of medical science against heart disease. Th« canipiiipn is being conducted by the American Heart Association, a group made up lafgely of specialists in diseases of the heart and blood vessels. The association'* program is as broad as its appeal. It aims at expanding research, professional education public education and community service. One particularly important aim it ijema to us, is to establish a greater number of / local heart associations. The eventual goal i s a local association m every sizeable city and rural area. These local groups would have ac cess to new knowledge and new activities develsped by the American Heart Association. Ideally—and, it may be hoped, eventually—the m in ions ' of heart cases" throughout the country would at last receive highly professional diagnosis, treatment a ,,d eare _ That, at present, is a ( ii stant goal It cannot be reached without a lot of work and a lot of money. Heart disease today causes one out of three deaths in this country. These ailments fli'e not, of course, confined to middle age and beyond. Rheumatic fevpr j s one of Hie deadliest of children's diseases. In New York City, over the 1942-45 period rheumatic fever annually killed more than ten times as many children as infantile paralysis, meimitrtlis, whooping cough, measles, diptlioria and scarlet fever combined. Yet it remains one of childhood's least-understood and worst- cared-for afflictions. Great discoveries remain to be made the cause and prevention of the va- ous heart diseases. They probably will be made, but it will take rime and money for research. Better treatment for sufferers from heart disease, and some relief from the worry and hope- S'T Ulat aCCOm P a »>' ", «« surely Pos S ,ble But they will require time and Stion Pr ° fessional alld Public edu- Yet at present the funds available to fight hurt disease „ a public enemy .re pitifully inadequate. In recent yean . voluntary agencies for tuberculosis and infantile paralysis have received 400 time, the money, and can- «r TOies 100 times the amount, that th* American Heart Association IM had to work -with. Thi» i« not th« public'* fault, Th« public lias not been asked to help before. But now that the call has come the American people will surely heed it. Millions suffer heart disease. Millions more have friends and relatives who are sufferers. Heart is an Intimate and unwelcome acquaintance, as well *s a national health slid economic problem. The amount that the American Heart Association seeks is modest, as such things go. It is «>king from the public less than $760,000, The climnx of its first campaign cornea during National i I earl Week, Feb. 8-H. It is not too much to hope lhat, at the end of that week, the first year's goal will not only be readied, but surpassed. VIEWS QF OTHERS Are We So Short of Oil? It may lie true,' as Secretary of Defense For- rcsta! says, that (he relation between [lie (iunn- (ities of crude petroleum readily available In tile United Slates and our national security in "a cause for concern." The fact Is far from reassuring, If it Is a facl, that we are using up our underground reserves of oil four limes as fnsl us they are being replenished by new pio- duclng wells brought in. But It does t;ot nrce.5- »"rlly follow, sn Mr. Forrestal seems to intuit, that the government should subsidize the rie- of sytuii.t!^ oil-making processes, such a* Ihe hydrogemtlon of coal. Prlvale enterprise ii working at Ihe Job of making fuel oils and gasoline from coal. Melhorii have been developed beyond the laboratory «lage; they are reported to have reached Hie point at which engineers, assuming the erection of » large-scale plant, can figure production cost... other Mian aervlce of capital that would render the output commercially competitive with the derlvnthes of natural petroleum. Admittedly the capital investment required to make oil from con! commercially feasible would be huge; the problem that It presents 1» complicated by the prospect of a contest for markets between the Infant Industry ot coal conversion and grown giant oil refining. If Die risks and problems ol synthetic liquid fuel are grea. so I* the reward hung up for those who venture and succeed. If It vera Imaginable that the supply of crude petroleum could BOOH and quickly reach exhaustion, then' any measures to replace a material so vital to national defense would be Justified. But the dale at which consumption »t the present rate will exhaust our oil reserves, though it has often been set, remains unpredictable. Secretary Forrestai l< right to ieel concern over the nuffloicney of our oil resources to protect tht nation against th« contingency of war. Nevertheless the sub-commltlee of the House Commutes on the Armed Services, which heard his testimony on Monday, would do well to make a careful survey of what private industry Is doing in tht synthetic fuels field before It recommends that the government go In 0 that business on Its own account o r subsidize It, Government subsidy "for any niriuslry should be the last desperate resort In a real emergency. —WALL STREET JOURNAL. ••••••*••• BARBS When the freezing days are over li'n be Just as foolish lo pm alcohol In the radiator as in the driver. • » .

(NEA)—A Russian ex-newspaperman named Jacob M, Lomakin—now in New York as delegate lo lhe United Nations Subcommissiori on Freedom ot Information—is currently kicking up (lull*- a fuss over what he calls DID "sensationalism" of the U. S. press. He (3 bothered particularly by sex stories, like the Black Dahlia murder case In Los Angeles. But Comrade Lomakin also wanls the UN to adopt a convcnanl guaranteeing freedom of speech, freedom of Die press and freedom of artistic expression. The last sentence of his resolution reads: "It shall be intolerable lhat this freedom or information be used to permit propaganda for fascism and aggression, or to disseminate false reports, dishonest information, or reports likely to Incite unfriendly relations between nations." This sounds pretty good, until you hold it up ngalnst some of the stuff that the Russian press and radio have been putting out. Then you set the feel of what U. S. life is really like, according to the Russian funny papers. Ever since the Marshall Plan was conceived, Russian propaganda has been going all out against, it. Every day. Radio Moscow picks up long articles from the Russian press, and broadcasts them all over the world. That's how the party line gets spread. Broadcast Translations Make /any Reading Here in Washington these broadcasts are monitored and translaled. and this dally report makes the zanicst reading in town. Ever since Defense Secretary ' James V. Porresul. GOP foreign , policy expert John Foster Dulles i and Bernard Darnell testified on the Marshall Plan, Moscow has had a field day. It began with a long article in Pravda by Zhukov—Rus- sia's leading commentator, through no relation (a the general. This VShukov covered the San Francisco UN charter conference in 1945, so he thinks he knows all about the U.S. ! reslal l,a.i announced bluntly that in exchange lor reconstruction aid. ^ "the western European countries j are to grant to the United States military bases." Also, that "the task of unifying tjie military forces of the 16 countries would be handed over lo the U. S. Department of Defense.' 1 The Pravda piece then goes on to paint the picture of "British, French, Italian and olher soldiers marching at tlie command of U.S. officers armed with U. S. tommy guns and singing the Yankee Doodle, wilh U. S. governors In command all over the place." Ex-Governor Oriswold ol Nebraska, supervising the Greek recovery program .is presented as having "replaced Ministers at his own discretion." It is reported that "he rules this unfortunate country like a colonial official engaged in his Job in some sort of a Puerto Rico." The old story of tl. S. bases on Greenland is dug up again by Prav- tla as further proof of U. S. intent i to exchange Marshall Plan aid lor j military domination in Denmark. l Says Weslern Europe Trades Eggs For Sovereignty I Britain, Sweden, lhe banes and lhe Dutch. Pravda linds are discovering (hot, -while dispatching to Europe stale cigarets. nylon stockings and similar goods of far-from- ftrst necessity, the Americans ask for the right to interfere in the domestic affairs of western Europe. 'Sovereignty is to be exchanged against an omelet—made from dried eggs,' as reccritlv remarked the British Evening Standard." But this seems to be the least of it. According to Pravda, the U .5. is threatening to use the atomic bomb, if Europe doesn't accept Marshall Plan aid. Prool is offered by reference to a speech made before lhe Swedish Chamber of Commerce by Freeman Matthews, new U. S. ambassador to Stockholm. Reports on the speech as received in Washington show that Matthews never even mentioned the atomic bomb, what he did say lhat lhe European recovery program was vital Jo the V. S. because, when Europe is threatenedi the U. S. has found that it, too, was threatened and must take whatever' measures were found necessary. What happened then was that the Swedish Communist paper NY DAG (New Day) picked up this remark and interpreled it by saying that the atomic bomb was "the measure found necessary." This is the picture of America that Russia is now telling the world day afler day. That's the way the Russian funny papers work. Just enough fact for a bare foundation. Then distortion and complete fabrication, "sensationalism" and "inciting unfriendly relations between nations" until it gags you. Sunday School Lesson By William E. Gilroy, D. I). The nature of Jesus was defined In iris mission and message. He was a messenger of God, come to save' men. Jiiit many messengers of Clod' have been ministers of salvatlo-i and the New Testament usigns to Jesus »n unique and special place In lhe revelation of God. The writer of lhe Epistle lo Ihc Hebrews expresses the fact of !hr Incarnation wilh great clearness and. emphasis, bringing out strongly both the divine and the human nature of Jcsiu, which the Incarnation means—that 1«, divine nature revealed In the flesh, In an earthly "Cod, who at sundry times and In divers manners," eayi the writer (Hebrews 1:1,1;. "spake in ttme past unto the fathers by the prophets, hnth in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom He hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also He made the worlds " The writer goes on, In terms that are very like those concerning 'he Incarnate Word In (ho prologue t' the Gospel of John, to assert and describe the glory of the divine Son of God. Then, in Chapter 2 of the Epistle, he tells how the Divine Son • "so much better lhan the angels"! look upon Him human nature I and "was made a little lower. tha>'i the angels for the suffering of, death, crowned with glory and hon- ! or. that He by the grace of God' should lastc death for every man " I . I have Uirned to these passages! m Hebrews, and commend the ' contex in which they stand, because I think they constitute the,best comment and exposition of I the specific passages Indicated as i Scripture for this lesson. Other potions of the Bible frequently constitute the best commentary upon a single pasage, anil this is true! of everything relating to the divine ' and human nature of Jesus, the i Christ. i We are subject, I think, to two ' dangers. One U that we shall miss the meaning and full significance of His earthly life in sharing with us our human nature. Jesus was a man. needing food and sustenance subject to weariness, needing rest' I and even needing prayer. "In thos. i days," we are told, "Jesus went intjl the mountain, and continued all' night in prayer." The temptations' that He suffered would have had' no reality, If He had not been truly i human. i And lhe other danger Is that the divinity of the Christ shall be lo us only a doctrine, or a theory, a confession in words, but not a "living fact. Jesus warned against this "Why call ye me. Lord. Lord " He sald.^'and do not the things that 1 The Apostle Paul was a great example of belief in the divinity of Jesus finding its reality in his life. As God was incarnate In Christ so he believed and taught that Christ could be incarnate in the souls of believers. "Christ llve-h m me," he said. Thai is the evidence of true faith in the divinity of Our Lord. By Harman W. Nichols United Press Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON, Ftb. 6.

One of the witnesses was Dr. Emerson P. Schmidt, an ccouo^nsv for lhe U. s. Chamber of Commerce. The committee cupped legislative ears and listened with rapt attention. Dr. Schmidt said lhat the way he looked at it, the purpose of controls is to divert production and to create scarcities in some sectors lor th« benelil ol other sectors The Senators quirked several sets of eye- brou's. The doctor, a somewhat portly gentleman wearing a pompadore too high up on hi.! forehead, said that a lot of sorry messes occur when we try to control economy— or prices- by law. Like in 194«. "Did you know," he asked lh» Senators, ''that the decline in packing house slaughter actually reduced residenlial construclion?" Senalorial Jaws dropped. And before Dr. Schmidt could open his mouth to continue his testimony, the inevitable question steamed up from all corncrr, of lhe oblong table in Room 301 of the Senate Office Building. "In heavens name, how?" The C. of C. expert was right there with the answer, having asked the question in the first place. Like this, said he: Nails for house construction are made of wire. Granted, nodded the Senators. Wire can't be pulled through the molds without certain lubricants. Okay. These certain lubricants happen to be by-products of animal slaughter. So the killing of fewer pigs and calves, he said, meant building fewer houses. The same was true for a lot of olher things that go into a house, Dr. Schmidt said. Glue, for on» thing. The stuff that sticks furniture together; a slaughter housa by - product. The committeemen, from Chairman Charles W. Tobey of New Hampshire on around the table, admitted the C. of C. man had a point there although they took some of his other arguments apart. Another witness before the Senators was Emil Rieve, the squatty little president of the CIO Textile Workers Union. He had much to say about prices, and how th« working man pays a lot and the big fellow makes a lot. Then the committee got into a sideline discussion on textiles. Mr. Rieve'* meat and potatoes! He fairly beamed. There sat the Senator*. Among them Tobey, Burnet Rhett Maybank of South Carolina and A. Willis Robertson ol Virginia. All of them have constituents interested in textiles. A lot of them grow cotton. They got to talking about some things that used to be made of colton and now are made of rayon—a synthetic cloth. "Ijook at ladles' pants," shouted Tobey. A shocked hush fell over old Room 301 and even the three chandeliers seemed to blink. They are being made out of rayon, shouted the Senator; that'i what they're being made out of. The gentleman from South Carolina sa.d that it's magic stuff— this rayon—and it's going to grow. The cotton folks down his way don't like it. Mr. Rieve looked up from hlj manuscript and remarked quietly that he didn't much care what they made pants out of—or undershirts, either. So long as his textile workers had a hand in the making.
