Message From Palestine, 1946 ^_ hundred and forly-six yeai"s ago lliore came from a Palestine a ; message of love and joy unequaler! in hislroy, "Glory to God in the hin-b- est,'Snd'on earth peace, good will Inward oicn." This year, as a world (le.s- l>ei-ate]y in nwd of cheer prepares once Strain, to celebrate the birth in a low'.y stable at Bethlehem of Christ the; Lord, Savior of mankind, there corny* from -Palestine another, and tot'illy different, message. -Trills is a message of hatred and sorrow, of bloodshed and ill will. H comes from Jew and Arab alike. An-1 it is, particularly tragic because it intensifies the human suffering which undeniably exists in that cradle of many religions, Holy Land to peoples of^-divergent faiths. ( • "•-wijews and Arabs -in Palestine figiit not only one another, but constituted government authority as well. Perhaps Cecause the British rulers now 'to favor Arab over Jew, the Jewish terrorist underground has hjuwn upbuil-l- 'ings, bridges, railroads, taken many lives, cached arms and ammunition in preparation for semi-open warfare-all in a vain effort to its will through carnage. •" These terrorists would be umvorlhv of the slightest sympathy,, did th y not aim at the correction of an admitted evil. Jews who-were tiie first -victims of Nazi brutality do wander •Europe today, as displaced persons,. in prying need of the refuge Palestine can offer them; that Palestinian sanctuary has been denied them; thuL- .present agony is indeed the responni- .bility of the entire civilized world. T5e- Icause more fortunate peoples tins pas;year have ignored these pathetically 'innocent "sufferers, it is by no means •^irprising that some of those Jews ?5$i>. already have reached the Promis,,^l»Land should seek to correct the injustice, by'force. v . ,.Blit; as always, violence has di.s- :S61ied. sympathy. The murder of Bric- [SsJiV Soldiers;.and the slaughter of equally blameless civilians certain.y cannot be countenanced. Not even tho truest friends of the Jewish oppressed can stomach the.acts of would-be Je,v- ish oppressors. And so, as day after day the press has carried rejwrts of additional outrages by the underground, the public demand for an improvement of the Jewish lot has licen diluted by honest misgivings. A few days ago, however, Vaad Letimi, the Jewish national council, was joined by Zionist leaders and even by representatives of the Haganah underground army in a denunciation of Jewish terrorists. Soon thereafter the repudiation was repeated by President Chaim Woi/.-' mnnn at the opening session of the World Zionist Congress convening in Basel, Switzerland/ Said Mr. Woi/.maim: "Against the 'heroics' of stu- cidal violence I urge the courage of endurance, the heroism of .siipur-hmmMi restraint." The world now lias at last the ,.er- tain knowledge that terrorist .slaughter is the work of but a small min-x-iV/ of Jews, vigorously opposed by a unit.-id front of responsible leaders. That knowledge, and the campaign for law and order whicli Zionists pledge, may perhaps succeed finally in opening th'u doors of the Promised Land to the su< ! . fering who wait without—and in returning, in ;ill its implications, to the scene of its birth the glorious ChrNt- mas message, "On earth peace, K y&.| will toward men."

Perhaps with a nice room in which 'o entertain, they would have more company of their ago and sex. She sometimes worried thai they had so few girl friends, because in high school they'd both been so popular. It was probablj- she thought, only due to the faci that after they were graduated the other girls went on to boarding-school or to the state university, and former contacts were lost. Smiling, Miss Amy thought that at least the Cameron girls had never lacked for young men friends. They came in swarms, like bees to molasses! . . And there was one of Sidney's high school intimacies which hadn't languished. Norma Lyon —such a nice, conservative little thing, and her father a Daptist clergyman.

Carroll Recce hns taken a great bli; roundhouse swing ill some of the Republicans iip- pointcd to fnt federal jobs by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Speaking before the committee at its recent Washington meeting, Recce gave President Truman a nice broad hint to appoint some renl, 100 per cent Republicans to government agencies as vacancies occur. The GOP chairman mentioned specifically the Federal Trade [ Commission. But what he said ap- i Plies also to the Maritime Com- ' mission, National Labor Relations Board. National Mediation B OT rd, Securities and Exchange Commission, Tariff Commission. -Federal Power Commission. Civil Servlc'o' Commission, Civil Aeronautics Bonrd and maybe n few others. Recce has two points. First, he says that these agencies perform scmi-leglslntlvc functions in ni:ik- Ing rules and regulations for the execution of acts of Congress, and that when there is a" Republican majority in congress there should be Republican majorities on thes-; commissions. Secondly, Recce points out Dint a lot of the Republicans nppolntc:! li these jobs in the last 14 ycara •have not been in actual fact rc.ii representatives of [he minority viewpoint, even though they technically (,ua!ltied for such positions'' In short, anyone who collaborated with the Democrats is suspect :incl may be purged, or at least ivill Have to prove Ills party regularity.

Oeorise Murphy and his lovely Julie are soiling Hollywood's reputation. Messing up the whole town, (hey arc. A Hollywood couple married 20 years come Dec. 28. Twenty years without, a single separation, or a .ingle reconciliation in a Hollywood night club. Twenty years of iiomestic happiness, 12 of them spent in Hollywood. That's George ana Ju'.ie. Hollywood 'must be pretty mad at them. Social outcasts, no doubt. People probably whisper behind heir uacks: "There go George and lulic Murphy. Married 20 years. They think It's cute to be seen with :ach other." What's Hollywood coining to? jcorgc is even working j u n ncw novle tilled "The Rich Full Life" WHAT'S THE SECRET? Ho\v do they do it? "Well," George said, "one of our friends, John McLain, says wi'i'e 5o unattractive that no one else would have us. Zilit I really don't believe that. "There's a waitress at M-G-M who is very fond of me, and I don't know how. Julie got that new washing-machine. She must have been nice lo somebody." They had some pretty good Ideas, llioiiBh. Said George: "I leave studio problems at the studio." Said Julie: "I never bother Jeorse with home problems." "When I have a date with my husband," said Julie, "I never for- 3Ct that it's a date with my best coy-friend." . Then there's Julie's problem at the previews of George's pictures. "I remember only one ' thing," she said. "I don't count the root- age in the embraces." There is no problem of professional jealousy In the Murphy home, although Julie was a star before George. That was back in the days when lie was a runner on Wall street and she was a New York night-club dancing star. George fell for her, learned to dance. They teamed up professionally, then for life. NO "CAUKER" KOIt JULIK Julie retired when George became the star of the family. And she retired for keeps. The studios wanted Julie in the worst way when the Murphys arrived in Hollyivod 12 years ago. "VVe'a like to talk to your wife about a contract," the big shots said to .George. George replied: "Call her up." They did. Julie wasn't interested. Kays George: "A happy marriage is a givc- und-lakc proposition. If you have a fight, don't count, to 10—count to 35, and then try and remember what the fight was about." Says Julie: "When you take a vacation, take it together. And remember that (he marriage vows don't.mean th;>C tile courtship is over.'' Children help to keep a home nappy, too. The Murpliys have two, Melissa ("Missy"), 3, and Den- "As n perennial juvenile, I '•hoiilrtirt even be admitting I've been married for 20 years," George udded.
