(ARK.) COURIER NEWS New* Jan« Shelton, Society Editor Phone 4461 School, Worship Practices Assure U.S. 'Place in Sun' Americans need not fear losing their place in the sun as long as they "take seriously the continuation of a public school system and a j belief In a practical religion in everyday life."

Arkansas educator and former county school superintendent here, who was the principal speaker at the Blythe- vllle PTA Pounder's Day program last, night in the high school auditorium. Refuting the idea that the United States has reached its peak of ascendancy and Is now tottering toward the beginning of its decline, Miss Lflwson pointed out that "America is the only nation in the last »000 years of civilization wnlclr has had In existence In a pair, and during its peak years, the two factors which will save It from going the way of Egypt, Babylon, Greece. Rome, and all the empires which have at one lime or another dominated the world scene." These factors she named as the American people's universal acceptance of Christianity or a one-God religion, and their belief that all the children of all the people should be "Rchonlpd."
