The cords thou canst not break; and therefore lie down getUSy, and suffer the hand of God to do what He—Jeremy Taylor, Barbs Burglars stole eight girdles from a Little Rock, Ark., store.

Y Building Good Idea But First Things First Elytheville's Y banquet brought to, the fore two interesting features of its work. The opening of a Negro playground this snmmor was received as good news by the community and Mayor Dan Blodgett's hint that something may be in the offing 'regarding construction of a Y building portends progress for the city's largest juvenile recreation program. Mayor Elodgett said the city's tax structure is being checked with "an eye to building a Y in the future." He didn't elaborate on this statement as to just what kind of tax program would be necessary to erect and maintain t a Y building . . . perhny>s planning is in an early stage anct all the answers are not known. However, it appears obvious that the city should move with exli'erne caution in obligating itself to undertake what would be a considerably large project. The city of Elytheville found itself barely solvent at the end of 1951. Prospects of increased city revenue are not apparent at this time. Taxes? An,unpopular subject, at best. There is no denying the fact that a well-equipped, modern building would be a wonderful tiling for I h e city's youngsters. Rut first tilings first . . . and Blythcville is still looking for a means of financing what looms as a gigantic sewer improvement program, which from a health standpoint could mean even more to the city's yoitlh. U.S. Can't Afford Political Play With Tax Reforms Senate committee action spurning the President's reovpamzation phin fnr the Internal Revenue Bnrc:in prosaties its disapprnvnl by the full Senate in the near future. Nothing more will be neeri- ed to kill tho plan. Jlr. Truman'? program called for abolishing the fi-J appointive collector jobs, consolirlatinir field activities on a new regional ba?i>. and placing bureau operations under Civil Service. But Senator George of Georgia, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, arguerl that the rton. would not insure honesty in the bureau and would create legal problems and hamper tax collections. Other critic? attacked the plan as a hastily contrived affair intended to minimize the grave scandals unearthed last year within the bureau. Seven L". S. collectors have been discharged or forced to resign, and three of these are under indictment for irregularities in their offices. Administration witnesses insisted the new plan would make the bureau more efficient and help the maintenance of high moral standards, They declared it was not whipped up in haste, but actually was the product of a five- year study which just happened to be concluded in coincidence with the 1951 scandals. The senators who have now rejected the plan include some who are well versed in the complexities of tax collection problems. An outsider not so trained is hardly in position to dispute their judgments on technical matters. Rut this much can be said. If their rejection is not to be put down as purely political, these senators and the Congress as a whole must now come forward with its own program for a Revenue Bureau reform. They are the men who have clamored for it. and since they have lagged Mr. Truman's plan as inadequate, it is incumbent upon them to produce a better one. Any disposition on their part to let the mallei 1 drag on without action will furnish fuel for the suspicions already voiced dial many lawmakers do not want reform until they have had a chance to make full use of the scandals as anti-administration election ammunition. The business of collecting taxes today is one of the really huge enterprises of government. It is a point of contact between government and citizen which a third of the population feels directly. Many a man measures the quality of his government by the tax dealings he has with it. Because that is so, because money- raising is so crucial a part of the government's whole program in these limes, it is damaging to men's faith in the American democratic system to allow a weak, corruptible tax collection set-up to remain in effect. Isn't there enough political capital in the fact that the scandals occurred at all? Must we endure indefinitely the conditions that made these evils possible ? It would seem much the more responsible attitude to proceed without delay to formulate a sound cure for them and put it into speedy operation. Views of Others On and On in Korea Barring some decision in Washington, u'tuch IE unlikely, it looks as though General Rldgvay's negotiators nre in for. continuance of the meaningless and already.Iexcesslvely prolonged armistice discussions with the North Korean and Chinese Rods. The closest observers of the Herts at the Panmunjom meetings now say truil there will be an nrmtstlce when the n,eds are ready for it nnd not before. There Ls no way of telling when they will want It. The military situation uinv lenrl.s itj-elf (o indefinite stalling. It Is not assumed that the Reds would court disaster by breaking off the talks and besdunins an offensive. On the other hand, the North Koreans and are how so well dug In and supplied that any UN offensive would rank in with a major war. AHIiough the Communist nrmics cannot be maintained without iome strain on China, the Reds undoubtedly (eel that they can sit out the summer in relative safety it they choose. Nearly all the arnu?tlre disagreements have been negotiated down to a point where they could be settled. The one black and white Issue that will br liard to compromise concerns thp exchange of prisoners. Tile UN will not return non- Communists who dn not want to go back and it charges, d^iiitc Rrrt cirnialj. that the 11.000 nnmcs submittrd by me communist delegation docs not cover nearly the whole list of UN servicemen In Red POW camps Peluing and Pyongyang probably will see that nothing is done lo close the gap on this Issue until they are ready for all armistice. Whether it is nsht or wroiiR to BO through the dny-to-iiay motions or keeping up the armistice talks. Washington apparently is caught with the necessity of krrpiiii; or-neral Rirlpw.iy at it. For with (he Red military situation Improved n.s a result of the lone cease-fire, neither Mr. Truman nor the stair department Rrc disposed to make the moves that would renew hostilities on a scale neeos.sirlly more deadly than they were before the cease-fire. —New Orleans Times-Picayune SO THEY SAY Get Ready, Folks, the Big Parade Is About to Start Peter Edson't Washington Column —• Latest Figures of UN's Aircraft Losses in Korea Are Reported WASHINGTON —(NEA)— Total United Nations aircraft Io=.se5 in Keren n combat, new number 818.

Paul the Apostle had many intimate friends and associates in the ellowship of the Christian life, and n the churches that he estai*ltsh- 'd. This is made plain In many passages and references in the Jook of the Acts, and In the Paule Epistles. But the closest and most intimate of all these relationships was hat with the youne man. Timothy, whom he called his son, and to whom he addressed two notable Epistles. Timothy, of course, was not Paul's son In a family sense. Soj far as we knnw Paiil \vas utimar- j ried (See I Corinthians 9:5), but it is a matter of conjecture whether he was a bachelor or a widower. \Vha( seems certain is that he had no child of Ills own. But a flesh-and-blood relationship could hardly have made Timothy Paul's son more In sentiment and effect than he actually was. So far as one can see the deep attachment on Paul's part, that of a lone man for one upon whom he could bestow his affection, was reciprocated by Timothy, a response that "s not always forthcoming from youth to old or middle age. Apparently Timothy never failed Mm, as Paiil believed young John Mark had failed, in the Incident leading to the sharp contention between Paul and Barnabas (Acts 15:36, 391. It Is to be noted, however, not only that John Mark made ?ocd. as the Mark who wrote our second Gospel, but also that he became restored to Paul's good will and favor, as a fellow-worker and a "comfort, to him" 'Colossians 4:11'. But Timothy was the young friend, who stood closest to Paul: and to his "son" "Timothy Paul wrote two Epistles, full of good counsel for youth, from which men of today mteht well profit. The history of men of strong character and achievement in re- lotion to their sons—and If. in eludes daughters as well—is full of the stories of sons who became weaklings, wasters, and failures arcely because the fathers sotmht to put. around them protecting In- fluenc^a anri safeguards, to save them from the struggle? and hardships which they themselves had the end of February indicate an | sioiu have been in interdiction — approximate ratio of from two to destruction of enemy supplies and No precise ficure on operational! ihr»e men for every plane lost in : lines of communication.

THE TAFTITES tended to (looh- pooh the significance of the returns; the Elsenhower p«ple attached the greatest importance to them: Kefauver thought he saw a. briaht highway for his presidential ambitions; and only Trurnsn kept quiet. A(. this moment it's Impossible to say whether Kefauver's success this week will have any effect at all on the Democratic pros when they hole! their Chicago convention In • choose a presidential candidate. In New Hampshire, the first ot a number of state primaries, the people cast two kinds of votes: one for delegates to the Chicago convention lo support a designated candidate, and one In which they were able to express a direct personal preference for the candldpjf- or their choice. JUf ' • * REGISTERED NEW Hampshire ' Democrats emphatically chose -Kefauver, on the two kinds of votes. But the most, important question remains unanswered: Were the New Hampshire Democrats expressing the feline of the rest fo the conn- try's Demorats in not wanting Truman? At this moment, there's no Indication that the Democrats in olh- er states holding primaries will have a chance to express a direct preference between the President and anyone else. For this reason: Although Kefauver has entered a number of other primaries coming up. the President's name has not been entered in a single one There the voters could once again show direct preference between him and. Kefauver. . * • * THE SAME BASIC que-stlon applies to Eisenhower and Taft; *'fire the New Hampshire Republicans expressing the feeling of the resfc of the country's Republicans in choosing the general over the s<jM| ator?

Far from writincr to his "snn" in terms of sentimental softness, however, he admonished him to be a i?ood soldier, and endure hardness. His one concern and prayer (or Timothy was that he might be faithful in the stern and trying days ahead. Many references tn the Acts and Enistles reveal how thoroughly Timothy fulfilled Paul's trust in him, assuming an active leadership in the churches. id East-West scored 200 points.
