She picked a substitute, a dark little -woman with big feet. legs like broomsticks, and no teetK. Her name was Arabella and she offered no friendship to any one, The first evening, when I bad seme friends in, she said that She disapproved of drinking, although she admitted that it was none of her bus mess. She didn't even wan: to wash the glasses. Arabella kept to herself. We kept to ourselves. When she left her room to come downstairs, sheworeawhiteuniform with a white headband on her dark hair, i looked odd with the sneakers. Still, that was her business. Arabella said my dog ate too much. True. It's the only tiring at which he excels. She said the living room mirrors were too big. She could not amerstand why I had books stacked in The headboard of my bed. "Heafchyman shouldn't be reading in bed," Arabella said, shaking her bead and tellinghovrdifferent life was inAsniston. The third morning I get up. she was siningouthekitchenstairs. Her elbows were cc her knees, chin cupped in palms. She looked Sid. Woefully sad. ".You ready to Jump off die dock?" I said. She shook her bead no. "I Just want yon to see what I been at," she said. Something about the slnrry tone, the ice- skating walk acrossthekitchen, rang familiar dunes in my head. "No." 1 said to myself, "fc can't be. This 1* breakfast time." She showed me a small cereal closet. I looked. "See how neat?" she said, and slammed the closet door and vent back to sit oh the steps. Chief came in. He had had breakfast and bad rehung die boat on its lines. I nodded toward[Arabella, He shrugged. "A vrino," he whispered. No, I said softly. This poor woman is not a vino. She is opposed to booze in all its horrifying forms. Chief chuckled. "I'm only trying to tell you." "My Chief," she said, curling her tongue around the words, "I just warn you to see this da- set." she showed him. He looked at it. Then he looked at her. Then atme. Ilookedaway. Arabella vent off to make the beds. Chief wagged bis bead. "Stewed," he said in thetoneof respect that one hangover reserves for Mother. "Std case." He went upstairs toArabella's room, fa a minute he was back dovn. "Thunderbird," be said. "She's Dying." I did some work in the guest house. At" noon 1 came In for toch.. Arabella coald hardly talk. I sat her at the kitchen table. "Look." I said sympathetically, "ff you want to drink on your own time, Arabella, Ibave nothing againsrii.'ltt—" "I hate alcohol." she said, and it was the firstlucidsenteaceof the day. I agreed and said that the bottle of wine woold have to go, or she would have to go.-or maybe both. She sighed. "Seven years ago, I bad aye accident," she said, trying to form the words precisely. "Doctor told me 1 tost all the blood in this left leg and I would have to drink a little port to get ft back." The headband was slipping off one ear. She paused to Set ft back on tap. "I suppose IBM that blood backkngago. Maybe. Anyway, it tastes so good." I might bare known that a good housekeeper would not select a good substitute. Mine must hive gone far to find this mental giant. • "No wine,- 1 said. "Before breakfast?" I said. "Tm sat• prised." She skated all day long. Once she came downstairs three at a time. Ererytime she saw me, she said: "Sec now neat?" ana she showed roe the same little closet. Gayle came in. took a long look and said to daddyo: "What are yon doing? Picking 'em for kicks?" • That evening, we had steaks. I asked Arabella for a little Worcestershire. She brought the bottle to. I reached for ft. She yanked it away and started to shake it. She shook it violently. After a minute, I reached agate. Gayle and Chief began to watch. Arabella shook it orer her head, infract, under each arm, behind her. and finally haadert it to me. •1 shook it," she said simply. We shook her. ..

RELIGION IN AMBVCA 'Extortion' Funds Cited Getaway Nerves Strain By GEORGE DDCON WASHINGTON—As the first session of the 86th Congress draws to a hectic conclusion our elected representatives are finding relief from tension by ribbing each other. A Congressman has tobealert/: these argumentative days and voluble nights not to fall into the needler's trap. At one 'of the late, late shows the House of Representatives has been putting on to hurry up adjournment, Rep. AimeJ. Forand, of Rhode Island, got the nod from soul-weary Speaker Sam Rayburn* and launched-into an impassioned pitch for reducing the from 20 to 10 percent. The 64-year-old Forand, who has never achieved much of a reputation hereabouts as a night club roisterer, thundered that the 20 per cent tax was a depressant on the cabaret industry. The minute the Rhode Islander ran down. Rep. Charles A. Vanik, of Ohio, took the floor and declared it wasn't the ta: that was the big night club depressant. Vanik earned the undying hatred of every joint operator in the nation's «-?rfra1; by adding: There is nothing more de- pressing than most of the cabarets around this town." " Jbis-exchange was followed shortly thereafter by another between Rep. Francis E. Walter, of Pennsylvania, and his Democratic colleague, Rep. ;Paul CrrJonesi -orj-fifasioiafc^ Tht rir"ttt'•'- wm intos** Committee, of the Whole, with the irrepressible Mr. Walter as chairman. Mr. Jones asked permission to address the body. The latter failed to grip his audience; in fact, hecouldscar- cely be heard in the distracting hubbub. Chairman Walter po-. unded for order. • "Please pay attention,** Wai- 1 - 1 ter exhorted the non-listeners. "The distinguished gentleman from Missouri is making an important statement." Jones almost wept with gratl- profusely — and was thanlrfng him still more — when the eminent pixy from Pennsylvania interrupted: "Yes, the gentleman from Missouri seems to be making n important statement.

They are aettingccncernedabout theprevalenc of "commercialism" in Protestant fund-raisuv activities. •• The Christian Century Magazine, which is always pricking the Protestant conscience in fts sore spots, was coeofthefint to raise the alarm. •"One need not travel fat in American Protestantism," the Centurv declared fa A recent editorial, "t» find money-raising schemes thai approximate the Roman Catholic Church's exploitation of games of chance, which we deplore and protest. ' ' -."Thousand of Protestant church bazaars, carnivals and 'summer fairs' are slightly more respectable than Las Vegas. "The practice of wringing 'advertising' dollars from merchants, particularly from those whoare not members of the churches in question, to finance church bulletins and magazines and dedication folders is also ripe for reform. Let's call it what it is: Extortion." The basic objection which many Protestants feel toward money-making project* - even such time-honored ones as church suppers and bake sales - is that they tend to become a substitute for generous voluntary giviacbythecontrewrioa. • This danger was stressed in a policy state- -nent adopted last month at the annual convention f the Luther League, youth auxiliary oftbeOnited uiherar, Church in America. "Commercialism within thechurcbijaprimary emy of Christian stewardship." thestatement serted. "H exploits the name of Christ and his church/ causing church members, as well as otherj, to , xi an obligation to support such projects as Airs, bazaars, games of chance, car washes and sales of various Wads because a church organization sponsors them. • "Commercialism tricks people into the satis .faction of thintingoh** are giving to Christ -and his charcTi whence? are refe^Ing a. productr" ' or service in eacitoiM »r theirThoBeyT* 3 =3 a: The statement concluded with an appeal to Lutherans to rely on "free will giving" to finance their activities. It can be done. The Southern Baptists have done it for years - and they, still manage tojiajj , more money into domestic and foreign mission! - • than any other Protestant denomination. The Presbyterians have doubled their benevolence budget in the past five years - not with profit-making enterprises, but through a vigorous campaign to educate their members to the duties and privileges of Christian giving. One typical U. S. congregation that has relied entirely on voluntary giving for the past several yean Is the Weatpert Pmbyterian Church of Kansas City, Mo. Ju pastor, the Rev. Stuart M. Patterson, says that the results of this policy "have been good in every respect." t:M O People Arc Funny — New day («r th* AH Linkletter allow ffi Rawh!d*-"Inclo>nt ol th* Goldrn Calf," MacdAn. aid Carty; a loat mlrilttor and a plot by a rival trail . bosi: repeat n Wall Diiney Pnicnta —New time; "Niolc," a study ot tlaphanu, partly animated; repeat T:M • The Troublwhooter*- Dtbvl; adventure Mrlei with Keeiua Wjmn and B«k MathlM a* * eoupl* •i tfob« trotttnf eoutno- Boa eotineeni 1U» B M Squad-Ntw HUM} •M WM of a prafeMknal •nooM Met U take over B>» bnlaea*; repeat « To Be Announced Traffic Court-R«. turning: dramatization! ot actual traffic court euea (M • Boxtof- Oacpar Ort». f» va nonattaa Fenua. •X, weltonrelchls § PhQ Silvers— "BUko'a rcaway," Morey Am• ' •aterdam; repeat 0 Tombstone Territory— "Poatmarked fc» Death," a robbery and a shoounf art linked; repeat _ i:N 0) H o 1 1 y w o o d Play- boua*— "Ivy L • a f u e," William Bendix, Tim Hovey; comedy with an ex-Marine ai a college freshman: repeat 0 Bold Ventura — Slate. - goei wiklcattinf U i in OB Movletlnrt-'Tiw row Margin," OhariM M#Graw, Marl* WindMT; •uipenit with a d«1»e«v«, a wimetf and a'nuiftttr on « train; "Criminal Court," Tom Conway IXiM • Latt Show — "Tereby Get» Her Man," Gl«d« Farrell.
