A Significant Event You Shouldn't Miss At 7:30 tonight In the First Baptist Church in Blytheville there will be conducted a service sifenificnnt in the fact that one like it hns not been held for 341 years. And it is R matter of speculation ns to when another service like it will he held. Probably not in our lifetime. , At this city-wide, interdenominational service, the Revised Standard Version ' of the Holy Bible will be introduced into popular use. Similar services in 3,000 communities throughout, the county will mark introduction of the new Bible. The first major revision of the Bible since the King James Version came into use in 1611, the Revised Standard Version is the result of 15 years work by 91 scholars representing 80 per cent of American Protestantism. This work was done to make the Bible easier to read and easier to understand. The Elizabethan English of the King James Version has been brought up to date, so that now-obsolete usage and meanings correspond with modern definitions and count a- tions. This has been done, however, without losing any of the beauty of the Elizabethan style. Tonight's community-wide Bible observance service is the high point of Christian Education Week, which b'c- gan yesterday and continues through Oct. 5. It is doubtlessly the hope of the scholars who produced this new version that, because the Bible will now be easier to read and understand, it will be- more widely and frequently read. We urge that you allond tonight's service and further recommend that you place — and use — one of the new- Bibles in your home. It is easy to underestimate the significance of an event 1 when it is upon us. No doubt there were many in 1611 who failed to see the importance of the introduction of the King James Version. It is generally the impact of years of succeeding events that places a specific event in proper historical focus. However, the very nature of current events is giving religion new emphasis, for it is becoming evident that religion is virtually the only dependable weapon we have against Communism from without and corruption from within — two diseases which .spread quickly in the absence of Christian Principles. A few more bonm at big at th* on* the Navy pulled and we might hav« come out of the war losers instead of winners. Douglas Larsen, NBA Washington correspondent, reports the background of the program following recent disclosure by the Navy that it is using guided missiles in the Korean war. According to Larson, the Navy junked its missiles program shortly before the end of World War II. And this hapl ncncd after what seems to have been a conclusive test, witnessed by top brass in the Pacific, of the weapon's effectiveness. Stranger still is the fact that Adm. Ernest J. King tossed out the missiles program on the recommendation of a report from some of his staff that was written two months before the test took place. In fact, Larsen says that Admiral King apparently never did see the reports on the test, which were favorable. That the program did not die completely during World War II was no credit to the Navy. Capt Robert F. Jones, one of the top men on the Navy program, took the idea lo the ^Marine air arm when he learned Hie Navy was going to drop it. The Marines used it effectively, though apparently not on a large scale. When the Koi'ean war broke out, Captain Jones, now planning officer for the Navy's guided missiles program, helped revive the program for the Navy. The real tragedy of the mysterious missiles case is that by its action in World War II the Navy denied to our armed forces valuable time and experience in development of the weapon. It seems fair, to assume that had the Navy pushed the program the missies would he at a more advanced stage than they now are. Actually, the case closely parallels that OL Gen. Billy Mitchell, who got him- seld in all kinds of Dutch for his spirited advocacy of the airplane as a military weapon some 30 years ago. Of the three men who probably did most on the Navy missiles program — Captain Jones, Capt. Delmer S. Fahrney, nnd retired Commodore Oscar Smith —• none but Jones got any kind of official recognition for his work. And nil Jones got was a minor commendation from the Seventh Fleet,' None got any awards or decorations for the job ha did. And in a war when people were getting Purple Hearts for cutting themselves on C ration cans during air raids, arid Bronze Stars for writing battle commendations, it was pretty hard not to get a medal of some kind for even the most commonplace accomplishment. But nary a medal went to the three men who probably did most in the development of Navy guided missiles and who had the courage to fight for what they were convinced was a good thing. It's too late to recover the valuable time lost by the Navy in development of the missiles, but it's not too late to give some kind of concrete recognition to the men who did such fine work on the program. The next move is up to the Navy. "fevxxnber How You Beat Me When We Were Kids?" Navy Should.Honor Men Who Revived Missiles News of ho\7 the Navy Mocked its own guided missiles program during JVorld War II makes amazing reading. Views of Others Erskine Johnson IN HOLLYWOOD HOLLYWOOD — (NBA) — The Laugh Parade: A movie writer who had been plagued for years by movie cycle* 1» the pet hero Will Gould, who just sold a prizefight yarn, 'Counterpunch," to Producer Harry Sherman. All his life, it seemed, the writer had been hearing producers scream about ' too many mystery films," "too many psychological films," and "too many" others. Finally this writer came up with a talking-dog story. "This lido," the writer told a producer, "makes a horse's neclc outa Lassie on accounta he can converse In 10 different languages, pitch left-handed and sing like Ezlo Pinza." "G r e a I," said the producer. "We'll make millions. This dog sounds sensational. What kind oi a hound is he?" "A boxer," said the writer. ' No good," guoth the producer derisively.

Peter Cdson's Washington Column— Progress Makes Wars Costly, No Matter What Politicians Say WASHINGTON — (NEA>— From-1 fses by both General Eisenhower and Governor Stevenson that they will reduce defense spending—and taxes—in a couple ot years are laughed at by many military men. The idea of spending a. considerable wad of the taxpayers' money for several years to build up defenses, then cut back for a long haul, makes a nice bill of goods to sell the voters. However, the best outlook the smartest mill* t a r y procurement authorities : cnn give Is that dr^nse spending could possibly be leveled off at present figures of around $50 billion a year for a long period of time — "possibly Pel" E d *° n up to 20 years— ut not cut. The reasons given for this are he rapid obsolescence of old wea ons and the equally rapid sclen fie advancement on new weapons he B-36 bomber, which was the oltesL Ihing in the air in 1050 lough It hasn't yet been used in orea ( is now outmoded.

The protest was .soon dropped and lat«r it developed that the lot on which a house was to be built for a white family was being used by n Negro for a vegetable garden. Hut ft statement marie by one of the Negrow who signed the protest petition is worth quoting: "We don't have anything H gainst them. It j ti s t wen 1 rirf L work 01 it."

The record covers six years c Senate key votes and the last two year session of the House. Wants to StEck Around When a reporter called at Fer aral Security Administrator Osca E wing's office to inquire what hi plans might be for life after Jan uary, 1053, an aide answered wit the question: "Don't you know what Adlai Stevenson's middle name is? 1 ' The reporter couldn't think what the "E" in Adlai E, Stevenson stood for. so the aide told him.

Dnms Have Tuneful Answer The Democrats' 1952 campaign hcme song, "Don't Let Them Take in the world. And Johnny wasn't kidding at the time, for he bid and played this hand in the finals of the national team championship few weeks ago. . ^ The idea of such a bid is that the opponents will have a hard Lime getting to their best contract if they have (o start at a high level. Ideally, Crawford should have had the Jack of hearts instead of one of the small hearts, to make a penalty double less likely an<i less dangerous, but he wasn'l dealt the jack of hearts so he gol along without H. As it happened, there was a big hand out against Crawford, just as he had supposed. But the big hanc was held by his partner, B. Ja> Becker, Instead of by an opponent So Becker had the headache. Jay thought and thought, am then he thought some more. For a little more than a minute he wa the center of attention in the quiet est room in all America. Then h came up with the big bid. Jay Becker is as scientific bidder as you'll ever meet, but h knows that science isn't the whole story. There was a chance that When Producer George Pal hired Master Mentallst Dunninger as technical adviser for the movts, Houdini," the financial arrange- lents were made in New York by Paramount executive, Russell iolman. Holman made an offer to Duninger's agents, who consulted tiv« rnentalist and then raised the fig- re by several thousand dollars. Iolman agreed to the sum and hen telephoned Dunnlnger and aid: "You dog —you read my mind. The salary you asked for was the exact figure we had agreed would be tops, We weren't going to pay •ou a cent more. But you hit It t Away," introduced at the Chicago Democratic Phil Regan, was a ight on the nose." Brew on Last Breath Director Budd Boetticher was congratulating Tony Quinn on a death scene in "Seminole." 'That last gasp was -great, Tony," said Budd. ''How did you ever get it so perfect on the first take?" Quinn, who for a year played the roughneck Kowalski in "A Streetcar Named Desire," g*inned and said: That'* how Kowalski went to sleep every night when he'd had too much beer." the "killing" opening lead would defeat the slam, he reasoned, and convention by natural for a parody by the Republicans, Here's one version being circulated around Washington: The mink coat crowd is on it's way, ' They're leavin' town!

Srp KUSON on rage 14 informative bidding would make it easier for, an enemy to pick that lead. Hence Becker just bounced right into the slam and gave West no information at all. West opened 'a low club, and Crawford make the slam with seven trump tricks, four spades, and the ace of clubs. At the other table, the North- South players bid several suits and then stopped at four hearts. Their bidding made it easy for their West to open a diamond, and the defenders promplty took two top diamonds and a diamond ruff. Card Sense Q — With neither Ride vulnerable, the bidding has been: North East South West 1 Diamond 1 Heart ? You, South, hold: Spades 9-5, Hearts 8-4. Diamonds Q-7-3-2, Clubs K-J-8-4-2. What do you do? A — Bid two diamonds. Your hand Is not strong enough for two bids, so you cannot afford to show the clubs first and raise the diamonds later. You must Indicate your diamond support in the hope that this information will be enough to lead your partner to the best contract. TODAY'S QUESTION The bidding is the same as in the question just answered. You, South, hold: Spades A-5-4, Hearts 8-4. Diamonds K-J-3-2, Clubs K- Q-8-4. What do you do?

Few things play a more tmpor- ant part in the health of grow- ng children than what they cat. 'hey must have enouph calcium or their bones and teeth, enough ron for their blood, eaouch calories so that they will have some eft over for growth after vigorous exercise, and enough vitamins. It IK at school age thai youngsters fi.-st begin to get away (rom he dietary control of their homes, and yet as much attention should given to food at this time as at any other. Breakfast *nd supper are usually still taken at home, but luncheon Is often mother matter, and yet this is Just as Important as the other meals. Many schools have cafeterias where the youngsters choose their own food. Some children do poorly »t this, and should be carefully Instructed by the mother as to what they should have each day and how much to pay for it. A bottle of pop and a piece of pie > la mode is hardly a balanced meal. Of course, the lunch should be considered in relation lo what foods are given at other meals. If. for example, ;r.:ik is not taken at breakfast and supper, then it should certainly be obtained at noon. In addition to milk, lunch should include some protein food Often parents prefer to give the .-oungster his own lunch to take rom home. If milk can be ob- nlned at school in addition, well and good. If not. a thermos bottle of milk can be included. The same principles apply to Ihe home-prepared lunch as to those just mentioned. Sandwiches, buttered and filled with meat, eggs, tomato, lettuce nnd the like, changed from day to day, are usually satisfactory and attractive to most youngsters. An apple, orange, peach or some similar Imit will supply another Important need. If the child has a sweet tooth, a piece of chocolate can be included for dessert. Check With Youngster The youngsters should actually eat the lunch which is supplied. Some children, unless watched will trade off their fruit for a piece of pie or pop. and thus no get the balanced meal which the> are supposed to eat.
