Meditations Or have found (hat which was lost, and Uclh concerning It, and sweareth filsrly; In any of all these llial a man dotth, sinning therein: .— Leviticus 6:3. * » • That which Is won III. will never wear well, for there is a curse attends It, which wlli wast* It; and the same corrupt dispositions which Incline men to the sinful ways of getting, will Incline them to the like sinful ways of spending.— Matthew Henry.

He had figured out — after exhaustive research, it said — that the cost of killing people with an atom bomb will fie down tc S2.SO per head by 1954. It strikes us that n man must have very little to do indeed to go around figuring out a thing like that. If he feels compelled to do it, let him keep his findings to himself. \\'& don't waul to-hear tibout it. The cumulaS.'e effect of this incessant talk about the A-bomb must hsve a frazzling effect on the collective nerves of the people. How frazzling \ve don't know yet. Maybe- the British scientist would like to do some exhaustive research on that. It seems the least we laymen have a right to expect is a little more talk from the experts on what atomic energy can do to aid man instead of obliterate him. The dean of the engineering school at Columbia University had a little comforting news along this line the other day. He said that while you won't be able next year to power your automobile with a hunk of uranium under the hood, the peaceful uses of atomic power are probably nearer than you think. Nothing downright exuberant there, no promise of pie in the sky, but withal! something less dolorous than the usual talk we get from atom people. A little change of pace, at least. Cheapening The Religious Not without justification is the criticism certain church papers nre voicing of the political prayers offered at both of the July national conventions. Those papers nre nt>l offended by the (act that prayers were offered. They believe of course that men engaged In grave public undertakings do well to pause and ask for divine guidance. But they deny that prayers should ever bo made a part of any political program. They condemn the partlsnn not* that appears frequently in those convention prayers. They resent the fact that the petitioners are selected sometimes with a view of the effect their appearing will have upon A subsequent election. That the various ministers are selected for political reasons cnn hardly be denied. Usually it Is the iarger denominations that are recognized. And never Is one chnplaln selected to do till the praying. The honor Is passed around among M i"«ny denominations M possible. If the distribution is de- elgned to prevent denominational Jealousies, the purpose is completely political. If the distribution le designed to curry favor with as many denominations as possible, the purpose is completely political. Let no one say that this widespread distribution of selected mlnislers completely ignores the divine Creator. That charge would be utterly untrue. But let no one think for one morr.cnt that Ihe men who prepare those programs and make those selections do not have one eye on the possible effect of those selections Uiiwil the, result of the election that will folio*. Honoring God is not their only purpose. They want to please as many Catholics and Jews and Baptists and Methodists and Presbytcrmns as possible, no matter whether God is honored in the process or not. In some of these late conventions invocations the implication is as plain as a mountain peak that the party prayed for Is'eternally right and should be supported by the voters of the country. Of course there are prayers that fairly ring with the sincerity of the- petitioners aa they plead with God to bless this nation and all Its citizens. This is the type of prayer that should be offered invariably and this is the type of prayer that, the church authorities should insist upon. No church that is worthy of its name will willingly Icr.d its name to the conversion ot the crass Into a partisan plaything. There Is some justification for the criticism that some church papers are voicing. —The Daily Oklahoma In Reverse Reds Trip Over Own 'Proof In trying 'o scare up a basis for their charges that the United Stales has been using germ warfare in China and Korea, the Communists have lately been hitting some snags. In Britain, for example, an "International Scientific Committee" appointed by the Reds to substantiate, the charges tried to come up with some "proof in the form of a small rat and some spiders which were allegedly dropped by U. S. airmen in Manchuria as disease spreaders. But when the "proof" was submitted to the fact-loving British Museum for identification, it soon turned out that the vats in question are never found in the United States, only in Russia, and neither they nor the spiders are known to l>e epidemic carriers. Finally, the committee had to come out and admit that "no conclusive proof" had been found. With characteristic The human race,'it-'Seems. Isn't nearly as smart as it gives itself"credit for being.

Where states run these networks, they'll have to get appropriations from Jheir legislatures.
