Meditation Walt here in the city until you are cloUiod with power from on high.— Luke 24:29. Uwtn Markhara said: "The trouble U that it •* do not wait in the right places to e this power from on high." His Clothes Were Ragged It didn't happen here; but it might. The little boy's clothes were ragged; the soles of bis shoes were full of holes ""and his hands were stiff from cold. / •• He was walking along Main Street, U. S. A. No one paid much attention. Few saw the pinched look on his face, the thinness of the body, the hollowness of his eyes. Just another street urchin. The announcement of his death , the next day caused little comment. Someone mentioned the dreadful condition of other people's lives, but no one did much about it. Some said, "That isn't my responsibility. It couldn't happen to anyone I know. I'm safe, and so is my family, .therefore let the rest of the world take care of itself." : But wait. These are your neighbors, whether they live next door or • back in the alley. They are human beings, who should be happy, healthy and fun roving like you and I. The Community Chest fund, which is soliciting contributions now, enables the Social and Child Welfare Depart; merits to continue , their work. Won't i yifa contribute'' your part now, and ' make your home town a better place , in which to live? Union Help for the Marshal I-Plan Some of the best brains of Aineri- . c*'» two biggest labor organizations ' have not been too busy with domestic problem* to give some thought to the situation in Europe. Their thinking seems sound, and the chances of Europe's recovery might well be increased if their projects are put into notion. The AFL would like to see labor spokesmen, chosen by labor, in a num- >ber of posts connected with the administration of the Marshall Plan. These would include important diplomatic jobs in key countries, if the AFL had its way. This request is backed by tlie soundest logic. Soviet propagandists—to say nothing of Henry A. Wallace—are telling the world that American foreign Policy is being shaped by Wai Streetcrs for the benefit of Wall Street. Tlie Marshall Pl an j s a foundation stone of that policy. Give organized American labor a significant role in administering that plan and Communist propaganda would lose much of its steam. The AFL is going to ask the State Department to support, in the United Nations, the union organization's request that the UN Social and Economic Council and the International Labor Office survey the "slave labor" . situation and try to find a means of overcoming it. The whereabouts of the many thousand military prisoners allegedly trans- V.Ported from the Soviet zone of Ger,many must be determined at high •' government levels. Still, the interest of .American unions in the fate of these •killed wprkers-an interest based on economic as well as humane considera- f tion«—seems entirely proper. Meanwhile the CIO is reported Kady to spend a million dollars in Europe next year to improve the lot of members of Europe's remaining free : unions. CIO plans are said to include, wnong other things, the establishment or youth centers in various countries. wert made before the Communist-inspired riots in France and Italy. But the riots only emphasize the need of rescuing these confused, i!!- fcd, disillusioned, war-reared kid« Ironi Communist agitators. Other CIO projects include the construction of a clothing factory in Italy, anil the .setting up of playgrounds and niir.serie.s for the children of mothers who want to work. It is hard to see why the American government should not welcome union plans. :ind suggestions and go along with them. High-echelon aid con- not reach down to intimate contact with the rank and file of European workers. A private program of aid, such as the CIO contemplates, should inspire the confidence as well as the gratitude of the workers. Officers of both the AKJ, and CIO, working among these workers but for^the American government, should be convincing proijf that the United States' intention in Europe is to help, not to exploit. Europeans today'are in urgent need of an antidote fur the concept of class struggle, which is gaining ground in an atmosphere of growing misery. The spectacle of the CIO and AFL, in spite of some bitter domestic rivalries, cooperating with their government in rebuilding Europe's economy would certainly offer an example which the Communists would be hard put to dismiss. A More Direct Payment White House reporters .seem to think Unit Argentina stands « good chance of getting an American loan if the Peron government should request one. Evidently it is felt that a loan of dollars might purchase the South American country's greater co-operation in the international food supply program. Well, a Ittfin probably would be cheaper than our present practice of sending dollars to European governments who spend them with Argentina for ?5.90-a-bushcl wheat, with the profits going into President Peron's treasury. Certainly such a transaction would have a more pleasing odor than thai associaled with Argentina's brazen shakedown of a hungry Europe.

That is. it can if it moves along the lines suggested to the National Foreign Trade Council here Monday by Mexico's Secretary of the Treasury, Kamon Beleta. He divided the hemisphere Into Creditor America and Debtor America—tr e Uniten states, fully indiistraltzed nnd rich in know-how and capital, and the Latin American countries, rich in agricultural and mineral resources but industrially backward. II Is not only to the interest of these lesser nations but also to that o t this country to push their development. The united States, he argued, would liu more rather than less business with an inrtusli.ilized Latin America To bolster this argument, he cited the example of Canada.

I>. Written for NBA Service Alcoholics become ill from excessive Indulgence, or through failure to eat while drinking. The chief chronic complications from alcohol affect the brain, spinal cord and liver. Action of alcohol upon the body can be likened to an ether anesthetic. Although alcohol Is sometimes considered to bs a stimulant, Its chief effect Is to depress the nervous system. The first result Is a feeling of exhilaration, which follows release of restraints. The face becomes flushed, pulse is full and bounding and the victim breathes deeply. Speech becomes loud and Incoherent. fx>ul language It used and stories »re told which, under ordinary conditions, would be repressed.

Reaction time is slowed down and accidents occur from inattention and poor judgment. Any drinker may get into trouble in this phase, if he attempts to drive a car or walk in traffic. An attack of delirium tremens can easily develop In a chronic alcoholic. As a result of great restlessnws and depression, he Is unable to sleep and consumes more alcohol. After a few days, the alcoholic sees and hears things which are not real. Immediate medical and hospital care Is necessary, If a fatal termination Is to be avoided* In spite of beliefs to the 4 BL FREDERICK C. OTHMAV (United Preu Staff Correspond*ni) WASHINGTON, Nov. 22 (UP)— No quickie producer In Hollywood ever considered a plot such as unfolded In a Senate hearing room; the censors would have tossed It on tlie cutting room floor and set a match to It. The proceedings hardly seemed real. The pale-faced MaJ. Gen. Bennett Meyers, retired, told a that couldn't possibly have hai ed, except that—of course—he said. it did. Sen. Homer Ferguson, ot Mich., chairman of the commute* looking into the general's big business deals, squirmed as in embar- rasment as he listened. And Blcriot LaMarre, the wronged husband—It wronged he' was— sat there with his cheeks flushed a deep pink, while he stared at th« man who admitted u long-time love affair with Mrs. LaMarre. The bala-ncaded general said he was a chivalrous soul, but that h« also was In a spot. He said lie hated t« mention the name of a lady, but mention it he had to do. And then he blurted out the whole story, banging the table at Intervals, getting paler than his own shirt as I'! went along, and speaking so rapidly reporters had difticulty keeping up with him. He scrunched forward on his bii leather chair, so that his words reverberated as far as the crowds waiting outside the door, and said that Mrs. LaMarre- had been not only his secretary, but his girl friend (his words) between 1936 and 1940.

Ralph Flanders of Vermot came up with a report that consideration might be given to rationing meat, butter and eggs, restoring installment-buying controls, extending export . controls, allocating scarce the present W cents an hour, and asking management and labor voluntarily to hold down wages and profits. Senator Flanders had previously urged curbs on commodity exchange speculative trading. Trumans' message also calls for ourblng the grain pit gamblers and he has previously and repeatedly asked for a higher minimum wage. On the other parts of the Flanders program he does not go atong. * What the President want* that the congressional committee on tile economic report has apparently not thought of is: authority to allocate transportation facilities and equipment; control over livestock and poultry marketing; encouragement ol Department of Agriculture conservation practices; extended rent control, and control over inventories of scarce materials. This, then, is the Truman austerity program. It is an austerity program in which nobody need get _ __ ._. _ hurt. Compared with the British Church of The Immaculate Con- austerity program, the Truman mes- ' ception in a meeting Monday af- apt to develop this condition Excessive indulgence in alcohol shortens the life expectancy, but statistics show that the outlook for social drinkers and teetotalers is essentially the same.

He claimed that he got only «u per week and during the five years ol its existence, he passed on more than $150,0001 profits secretly to Gen. Meyers. "Thai was not true," the general shouted. "Tnis man has admitted he perjured himself. I organized that company for the reasons I statnl and I loaned the LaMarres, both of them, about $18,000 over the years." The senator wondered 1 if he had any cancelled checks to back up this assertion. Gen. Meyers was amazed. Why, he said, he was married to his second wife at the time. And he could not conceive of a U. S. senator believing that he would pay anything but cash under the ciru- cumstances. Now Sen. Ferguson's face wu flushed under his 'mop of whit* hair.
