British Socialist Leaders Awaken to Red Menace Britons who have viewed the Communist element as little more tiuin a lunatic fringe 'which they could afford to ignore are getting a 'bit of n shock. They are hearing that the Reds have wormed.-their way into the Socialist Part.vf one of the" two major political groups iii the nation, in disturbing numbers. And the charges have been coming from the Socialists themselves. Party bigwigs, including Herbert Morrison, deputy to Head Man Clement Attlee, are saying in their official newspaper, "It is high time that eyes were opened to how very real is the menace of Communism." The Reds are active in the leftist bloc of the party led by Aneurin Sevan. Bevftn, for all his anti-American sentiment and extreme programs, cannot be called a Communist. But his opponents say it is apparent that the Communists have chosen him as their best hope for disrupting '• British-!). S. relations. Bevan won a victory over the party Old Guard at the recent Socialist conference in Morecambe. And the Old Gtmrd is giving much of the credit for that victory to the Reds and fellow travelers. The Bevan wing elected all six of its candidates to the party's policy-making executive committee, gaining prestige and a great psychological triumph. Among those displaced was the moderate Morrison, a friend of the U. S. It should not be implied that the Communists are close to grubbing control either of the Labor Party or of Britain itself. That just isn't true. Leaders of the big trade unions which dominate the party, financially and numerically openly detest Bevan and have pledged to fight "Bevanism" to a finish. But party leaders are convinced that tolerance of Reds and fellow travelers must no longer be allowed in the organization's rank and file and in trade unions. They — along with large segments of the British people — have had a scare. Good Sign, if True- Advertising men, who have to know about such things to work out their sales talks, are saying that the American people have been rapidly maturing. Speaking at a national meeting in New York emphasized that more money to spend, more travel, more working at outside jobs by houswives and mothers, more interest in higher education, and more buying of magazines "not edited for 11-year-old minds" have led to generally widened horizons. Causes for the rapid maturing were traced to World War II and the threat of World War I/I which has forced the people to live under a different type of economy. If true, the rapid maturing is encouraging. For the tense world problems now facing us and due to face us will demand the best that a "grown up" populace can offer. Must Seal Unity Now The Republican Party must have been Kreally encouraged by Senator Taft's declaration of full support for General Eisenhower, the party's presidential nominee. H means that thousands of earnest followers of the senator will now pitch in for the general's cause. They were waiting for word from the man they backed so stoutly at Chicago and before. Those" who wish to stress thnt the Taft forces were beaten at Chicago and should not be "appeased," will possibly measure this development as harmful rather than good. They would like to see the winner, Eisenhower, virtually disavow the losers as Republicans. Others question whether Ike could do it effectively if he wished, or whether • it would be wise. They contend that somehow the Republicans must find unity among their diverse elements, us the Democrats seek to do among their separate northern and southern factions. After all, Governor Stevenson, a moderate with certain leanings left of center, has repudiated the conservative southern wing of his party. This reasoning seems sensible. Our parties are great hodge-podgcs of liberals and conservatives, and any presidential nominee must somehow learn .to live and .work with all groups within his particular fold. Pure ideological groupings do not seem possible or sensible in varied America. Views of Others His Favorite Spot for Years Frs/cine Johnson IN HOLLYWOOD A Bad Export Balance Southerners who properly bemoan the region's exportation of "brains" to other regions — mostly ' young graduate engineers, architects and tech' nlclars — will find little comfort In i 'new set ol imiwrt-export fjgijrp.5. According to the Southern Regional Educntlon Board, in the 1049-50 -school year there were 43.075 student. 1 ) from 14 Southern states enrolled throughout the nation for graduate work but the enrollment ot graduate students In Southern institutions totaled 37,506. _:;.?;'_. "Thus," says the Board, -subtracting quickly, "the South had a net out-migration ot 5,497." In all probability most ot these students were prospective teachers and educators, though graduate schools offer degrees in many other fields. The South sorely needs teachers with graduate training, but the Inference of these figures Is that young Southerners go North and remain there. With about TO per cent of the nation's popula- tlJn, the South has facilities available to award only otie-slxth of the master's degrees and one- twelfth of the doctor's degrees In the nation. The old complaint that there Is not really a university of the very first rank in the South still may be true. The Southern Regional Board of course Is doing iti best to bridge these regional chasms by persuading Southern institutions to share their facilities. In Ihe first three years of the Joint educational program the stairs have Invested S2.5 million in education for'nearly 1,000 students who had to leave home slates to find suitable graduate schools. The program is a success but there is a real question whether it is large enough. From technician to teacher our "brain" export trade is too brisk for any satisfaction. —Asheville (N. C.I Citizen. SO THEY SAY HOLLYWOOD'—(NBA) Behind the Screen: Don't censure movie pin-cushion geniuses because Hollywood no longer is setting fashion styles. Blame Hollywood's lack of "clolhes horses." "The screen's following the French styles," Oscar-winning designer Elois Jenssen said, "but It's not the fault of Ihe Hollywood designers." Her reasons for a black- oui of zippy movie wardrobes: "Wardrobe budgets have shrunk to almost nothing. But the real trouble is that there are no stars left with authority to set styles, Jane Wyrnan's coming along and so is Anne Baxter. Marilyn Monroe's setting a fad for tight evening gowns and blue jeans. But there Isn't a real zippy clothes horse in all of rriovietown." Elois, the first movie designer to work on a lelcfiljn series, Is in charge of Ann Sothern*s "Private Secretary" cloihes. "I'm dressing her with a secretary's salary mind," Elois said. "Her dress for the pilot reel cost only $35. But don't ask me what the alterations cost." Peter Cdson's Washington Column — Special Report on 'Tidelands* Will Provoke More Shouting WASHINGTON —(NBA)— Another chapter in the so-called "tide-land.*;" oi! cnse will soon be made public. It will be In the form of a report to the U. S. Supreme Court, filed by Attorney William H. Davis of New York, former chairman of the War Labor Board. Mr. Davis was appointed special master to investigate certain aspects of this case in February, and has been working on tip-nf I the complexity, of 'this busi- n e s s, ah out j there has considera- emotional steam, without- n deal of understanding of the fundamental issues involved. ff the Dnvis report is filed be- ore the November election it may nave some political impact on'the results In California, Louisiana and Texas." How much effect-it will have is, of course, unpredictable. Tt will depend on the nature of the special master's findings — whether they favor federal title to the off-shore oil rights, states' rights, or a fair compromise between the two. It is usual practice for the Supreme Court to accept a special master's recommendations. But it will take the court some time lo make up its mind. So the crisis— General Eisenhower has indicated that he would sign a bill giving the stales title to off-shore oil rights. Governor Stevenson has said he would not. That is the crux of the whole business, Sliore Lines Complicate Contrary to genera! opinion, there is no dispute over (he tidelands — the lands between the average low-tide limit in to the high- tide line. The federal government admits these tidelanris belong to since. [ tbe states. The dispute is over the if any — may be passed over after the election. Even so, off-shore oil case, as it should be called, (s bound to be an issue before Congress in 1953. land from the mean low-tide line out to the three-mile marginal sea limit and beyond the sheff. . The specific problem which the Supreme Court asked Special Master Davis to determine was what segments of the California coast require adjudication as to boundary between state and federal rights. Also, what procedures the Supreme Court should follow in setting this boundary line. This problem' would be relatively simple if there were a straight shore line, as there is on the Texas Gulf coast. It is much more complicated when there is an irre- gulnr coast line, as in Louisiana, or deep bays and off-shore islands, as in California. The report from Special Master Davis is therefore- expected to cover three main points: 1. What is the status of the channel areas between the 'California mainland a n rt the off-shore islands? These Islands are Santa Rosa and Santa Cruz off Santa Barbara. Santa Catalina off Los Angeles and Long Beach, and San Clemente off San Diego. From Santa Barbara to San Diego is roughly 300 miles. Clemente is about 90 miles west of San Diego. California argues that underwater oil rights of all this area belong to it. The federal government disputes this claim. 2. What indentations of the California coast constitute bays that belong to the slate? Open-Water Bays are in Dispute There is no dispute over San Francisco Bay, which is entirely landlocked save for the mile-wide Golden Gate entrance. That is California's. Monterey Bay, south of Santa Cruz, gory, being indentation. is in the same cate a deep, semi-circular But Santa Monica Bay off Los Angeles is 28 miles wide and San Pedrc Bay off Long Beach is 19 miles wide' in open water. Here the federal government makes a claim. This is an important area, for the big Huntington Beach oil field taps both tideJand and offshore oil from wells drilled on the coast, but slanted seaward, 3. By what criteria is the low- tide water mark along the California coast to be determined? This is a stickler btJsuise California tides are not regular as they are on the • Atlantic coast. One tide each day is higher and lower than the other. California says, Ufce the lowest of the low-tide marks. The federal government, using U. S, Coast and Geodetic Survey data, says, take the average of all tides over 18.6 years to be fair nader all circumstances. , This Is what the shouting will be about when Special Nfaster Will Davis makes his report to the Supreme Court. The screen's old master of tbe bathtub scene, C. B, DeMille, can start gnashing his teeth. Hollywood's heroines always wear a little something to plense fhe censors, but in the first Technicolor epic from India, "Aan," 19-year-old counterpart of Yvonne de Carlo named Nadira wears absolutely nothing in a dunking sequence .rivaling DeMille's lavishness. Kissing: is outlawed by India movie censors, but there's nothing in their film cone aboul nudity "So no one objected," Mehboob Khan, the film's producer, lold me "But she's photographed in good taste—the water is clear but covered with floating" flowers."

The Lord's Prayer, as recorded in Matthew 6 and in Luke 11, nnrf translated in the commonly used Authorized or King James Version, has variations in the petition regarding forcstiveness thnt lead to some confusion in the public use of the Prayer. In Matthew 6 the petition is rcn- „ . .— , - .... dered.' "Forgive us our debl&, as we j this use has been widely influenced 'orcive our debtors.'/ In Luke 11 u by the Church of England Book of 5. "Forgive us our sins; for we also Common Prayer. I used that, fortn 'orgivc everyone who Is indebted to during my Congregational ministry .is." However, in recording the com-! in Cruiacln, It is this form, also, ment of the Master, emphasizing.! that ,the late Dr. Lloyd Douglas enforcing the petition, in Mat- gave to one of his books. "Forcive thew 6, therp. is the mention of s Our Trespasses" is probably the Prayer in the various orders of service the word 'trespa.we.s" is used, though in at least nine out of ten of these churches the congregation recited "debts" in the Prayer. In the Protestant Episcopal Church us the universally used form is. "Forgive Us Our Trespasses,"and place. A good detective would have spotted it, however, and maybe you'll do so. West opened the king of spades, and East signaled with the queen. West continued with the ace of spades and led a third spade to make South ruff. South next drew two rounds of trumps and lost the diamond finesse lo East's king. When East returned a club, South put up the ace and later discarded the queen of clubs on dummy's long diamond. Declarer thus made his con- 'trespajses." There is a similar reference In Mark 11:2-1-26. apparciU- ,y drawn from the Lord's Prayer, though Mark docs not record the Prayer AS a whole, as do Matthew and Luke. The difference* are unimportant with regard to the meaning of the Prayer. Its clear implications, and it* use by individual. The confusion aris&s in its public use. and recitation. This possibly chiefly affect,*; visiting ministers conducting services, who may forget to inquire before tbe service whether the eon- erp(;fltion uses "trespasses' or "debts."
