THE BRAZOSPORT FAGTS Brazosport and Brazoria. County, Sutvfo" PAUL HARVEY NEWS 27, 1959 Land of Milk and Honey urn Once upon a time there was a man named Moses. He led his clnldVen through the wilderness ; and, after 40 years, they were within, sight of the Promised Land! Here was the land, just across the river, "flowing with milk and honey." We've sometimes forgotten that- Mankind had a second shot at the/Garden of Eden. After his greed got him evicted, his seed: ultimately was brought safely io the Promised Land. A 1 land of bounteous good things, lush fruit, fat cattle, prospering flocks of sheep. The Chlldrto of Israel had it made. But" the Lord knew they would not be satisfied witli tliat. lie told Moses that the people, when thay had "eaten and filled themselves and waxen fat," would turn away from Him and worship other gods. Tliat the people would break the law and many evils and troubles would befall them and Cod Wanted this prediction set down r in writing so that those of us Who would be born hundreds of generations away would realize what went wrong. So Moses wrote it all down In a book. '"For 1 know," he said, "that after my death ye Will utterly corrupt yourselves, .. and evil will befall you ... because ye do evil." And so it came to pass. They could,take poverty, but they couldn't take prosperity. They could take 40 years of hunger and privation and all manner of hardship, but they couldn't take it easy. I listened to Khrushchev when he addressed the Press Club in • Washington. His undisguised contempt for our ;"way of life" is not without some Validity. Boasting about how far Russia lias progressed "since the Revolution," he stood by his earlier declaration of economic war.- "We will bury you." He described the manner in which capitalism replaced feudalism when feudalism became corrupt and inefficient. He reasoned that communism would now "bury" capitalism for the same reasons. "But we are the Christian .nation," some proteit. "Why doesn't God protect us?" We are professing Christians, to be sure. But are we law- abiding Christians of the kind that God once led by the hand through the wilderness to the land of milk and honey? Or are we the kind who have "eaten and filled" ourselves and "waxen fat "and "turn away from Him to worship other gods"?. Which are we? Are we the God-fearing Christian nation which-hat Men ao riclily blessed with milk anc honey that our 7 per cent of th* earth's population cam* to of all the. world's good things? Or are we kin to those of whom Moses wrote: " ye will utterly corrupt yourselves.., and evil will befall you.. .because ye do evil"? Reread the first page of thi! newspaper, then ask yourself that question again. Both Scripture and history agree, irrevocably, that w*. individually and collectively, set wliat we deserve.

I would like I fear he will haunt me, .jt^eems, to exorcise the nightmare trftiim wallowing with Nikita S; 'Khrushchev through his ensilage; Jurlously firing fistfulls of theichopped-up cow fixlder into the faces of amazement-rooted reporters. It goes against thegraln to have to report this about an honest tiller of the soil, but old farmer Garst made an unmitigated spectacle ot himself. He behaved the way we might ha\e described some of Khrushchev's ' behaviorism aberrations if President Eisenhower hadn't asked us to go easy. This corn cropper of Coon Rapids was sort of supposed to epitomize the capitalistlcally- sufficient American farmer to the touring Communists. But instead of typifying th* dignity of labor and of man, old gaffer Garst did a photographically-recorded pratfall In his own cornfield, roared about the place in a manner calculated to give inferiority complexes to his own bulls, and topped his simple folksiness by letting go of Khrushchev to kick the professorial Harrison Salisbury, of the good gray New York Times, savagely in his unprovoking. but smartly provoked, whatsis.

In response to other queat ions, young Garst bellowed that he was a tenant fanner but n*v*r called himself « kulak or pee- sant. A few duty-driven cameraman started to cross the ensilage pit to get within focussing' distance of Khrushchev. A • tractor- driven scoop dumped a wagon- load of ensilage upon them. 1 won't say either of th* Carats were responsible for this, but tow were certainly howling orders in the direction of th* •coop-operator.

But, whll* bruahing out my scanty locks, I knew for the first time what it means to be called a "hayseed," A couple of my mor*«rudlc* colleagues told me they were going to writethat Garst was not ' a ''typical farmer" but "atypical fanner," running the definite anicle and noun together, but this is a little too *sct«ric. for me. Carat hat mad* several trip* to Russia and conceivably could n*ve picked UP someofhianwn- ner* over tkir*. All 1 can say is that he made Khruihchtv seem like a benevolau old rustic* by comparison. You can't buy a drink legally in Iowa, but Garst had lira loaded with hard liquor at his main farm. However, 1 didn't see Khrushchev take a drink, although vodka predominated. . Adlai Stevenson, who showed up at the farm in time for lunch with Mr. K. laid off the liquor too.
