THE PARIS, TEXAS, NEWS FRIDAY, OCTOBER 7/1960 Communists Batting .000 in Latest U.N. Fight, But Cross Your Fingers Whatever propaganda gains they may score at this session of the United Nations 'general assembly, the Communists have batted .000 so far as the votes on major issues are concerned. First, a unanimous vote of the assembly (with the Communist bloc abstaining) upheld United Nations policy in the Congo and requested all member states not to meddle in that chaotic land or send troops there. This was a stiff rebuff to Premier Khrushchev upon his arrival on these shores. The Russians had put so many planes, trucks and "technicians" at the disposal of their stooge Lumumba that their failure to gain control of the country was a near-miracle. Instead the Russians had been sent packing just before the U. N. voted. Tuesday the Soviet Union suffered a double defeat. The 21-member steering committee voted 12-7 to shelve for another year the question of seating Red China. This was the 10th straight time discussion of the admission of the Chinese Red regime has been postponed. And this time the Communists had to spearhead the adinit-Red China move themselves. Formerlv India carried the ball for them, a circumstance that gave the pro-Red China move much prestige since India is generally considered the most influential member of the Asian- African states. The other Soviet defeat was the 11-7 vote by which the steering committee rejected Khrushchev's demand that the Congo question be put on the general assembly's agenda. Thus the Red premier was denied the chance to air his fantastic charge that Belgium is guilty of aggression there. It is a typical tactic of the Communists to accuse the other side of the very wrong they are perpetrating. Belgium gave the Congo its independence; Russia tried to subvert it and gain control. So Khrushchev accused Belgium of aggression, while practicing aggression there himself. Now that the United Nations consists of 98 members, about half of'which are now nations, relatively new nations with little experience in self-government, or Soviet satellite's, almost anything can happen. The Reels scarely could want a more favorable setting in which to operate. So far, they have only suffered defeats this session. But keep your fingers crossed. Pans Presents Strong Airline Case The appearance which Paris made before the CAB Examiner in Dallas this week was typical of the way Paris business and civic leaders do things. Nine Paris witnesses appeared. Their •testimony was sound, and impressive, in 'behalf of Central's application for a flight ;from Paris to Hot Springs to Little Rock. • Other cities along the line presented single witnesses. Paris went all the way, •and really told the story of the flight's 'benefits for the industrial future of this ; city. • We commend the Chamber's Aviation ; Committee and the witnesses who appearad before the examiner. The presentation was "well planned and well conducted. Ben ; Mooring, representing the City of Paris, and • Don McLaughlin, representing the Chamber committee, questioned Paris witnesses. Others present were Hoyt McDaris, Henry Ayres, Robert McWhirter, Frank Sherman, George Serur, Jim Oxford and Jim Durham, of Central Airlines. They told a story of Paris' need 'for additional air service for industrial, commercial, retail and medical needs. The new flight, if approved, would not be an additional one. It would replace one of the north-bound flights to Fort Smith, Ark. The time of the new flight, if approved, would improve the local connections with Dallas and Fort Worth and would give Paris better air service overall. Such efforts as this are what make Paris the progressive city it is. We must continue to seek out every opportunity to improve the facilities, the services and the The Paris News is an independent Democratic newspaper, supporting what is believes to be right and opposing what it believes to be wrong, publishing the news fairly and impartially at al] times. SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON Worship Requirements Serve As Theme for Sunday Lesson Aiter Khrushy's Screeching- -ANVTHIHG WE CALL? EACH OTHER SOUNDS A GEORGE 0/XON Everybody's for Education, But Services Behind Times By EARL L. DOUGLASS '. The Bible opens with a declaration that the world, and the uni- ' verse of which it is a part, were created by the word of a supreme, personal, and all-powerful God. "In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth." The Sunday- School lesson for ;October 9 bears the title. The ' Adoration of God. Surely a Being who could so create us, the Being from which we sprang and upon whom we must depend for every moment of our continued existence, is worthy of being adored. In fact, there is no employment of our efforts and emotions which can bring us more abiding satisfaction than a deep realiza t i o n that we belong to the God w h o made us, that we are constantly in the stream of his power, and that it is our privilege to share :both his spirit and his fellowship. "The earth is tbe Lord's and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein: for he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods." We are part of God's great creation. Our lives are lived within the matrix of its reality. ; This twenty-fourth psalm may indeed have been composed when the ark of the covenant w a s brought into Jerusalem. Chapters 4 and 5 of I Samuel describe how -the ark had been captured by the Philistines and placed in their .temple. Because no end of misfortune seemed to follow in the wake of this capture, the Philis- .tines decided to return it to the Hebrews, but it was brought, not into Jerusalem, but allowed for some time to remain in a private home. Then, on a glad day, it was brought into the city itself. David, who with all bis faults and weaknesses was nevertheless one of the most genuinely religio u s They'll Do It Every Time ^^~~^^-~ > " "" --^_ men that ever iived, went out lo meet the procession and in his enthusiasm "danced before t h e Lord with all his might; and. . . was girded with a linen ephod." Saul's daughter Michal, who was also David's wife, despised David for what she considered his undignified display of religious emotion, and jeered him bitterly, thus bringing between them a breach of relationships which continued the remainder of Michel's life. We do not know for certain, but; this 24th psalm may have been | the piece chanted by king and people as the ark came into the city. In (his psalm we find the spirit of worship beautifully expressed and the requirements of true worship set forth. Who has the right to .stand before God as an adoring worshipper? The answer is, "He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully." This does not mean that one has to be perfect before he can worship God acceptably; it only means that a man must be deadly in earnest about trying to reach perfection, that he must come into the sanctuary with cl e a n hands and a pure heart. Evil and sinful thoughts assail the minds of even the most saintly. If we could not approach God until our lives were entirely free of sin, we would never have the opportunity to approach Him at all. But there is a vast difference between the man who is trying to shake off his sins, to avoid temptation, to make restitution for the evil he has done, and to keep his mind i and heart pure in thought and motive, snd one who strides into the house of God and claims arrogantly that his life needs little or no amendment, and that he is just as good as his neighbor, and probably a lot better. This is the wrong spirit with which to come before God in his sanctuary. The Bibie is replete with assert ions that God loves the humble o f heart, and that his hands go out in mercy to the man who knows in his frustration and grief that he desperately needs God's mercy and loving kindness. The gates of the temple o p en for the man who brings into the sanctuary a heart ready to receive God's richest blessings. The gates, the everlasting doors, open before him. Best of all, they open before tbe King of G!ory, the Lord of Hosts, the Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle. Your life and mine will ever be a battlefield. We need that Being as our ally who created us by his word, and whose promise is that in his love He will sustain us with his holy power. We should have an infusion of such power every time we enter church. We should be aware of God's presence in the humblest walks of life. We should so discipline our sou's with daily devotions that turning to Him becomes for us as natural as the turning of a child to the security of a father's house and the peace of his presence. SEVEN SENTENCE SERMONS Some defeats are only installments of victory. Riis WASHINGTON, - Virtually everybody running for high public office in this enlightened year of 1%8 has come out in favor of education, but the children of our military men overseas are still being taught that Italy has a king, Austria Is an integral part of Germany, and that "just at the end of the war the Germans decided to have a republic and not be ruled any longer by an em- perior-" The Air Force is popularly supposed to be our most up-to-date Branch of the Service, but ii seems i.o be farthest behind the times in the textbooks it is using in its schools for military dependents. Actually its books are not quite •as au courant as the Army's—and the Army uses a social studi e s textbook which was first written in 1937 and last revised in 1942. Senator John F. Kennedy and Vice President Richard M. Nixon might like to know that their pilches for better education have been accompanied by educational cuts for the children of o u r soldiers, sailors, aviators and marines in foreign bnds. 13 YEARS AGO Asked the way to he a v e n, Bishop Wilberforce said: "Take the first turn to the right, and go straight forward."

It must make the kids wonder I to see all around them the scars |of World War II that, accord- i ing to their schoolbooks, hasn't 'happened yet. Douglass Cater, erudite Washington editor of the Reporter magazine, informs me breathlessly the Internal Revenue Service owes money to Fidel Castro. Mr. Cater, who ready everything, said he went, name b y name, down a list of people who have 1959 Federal income tax refunds awaiting them in Baltimore, and found "Castro, Fidel" about midway down the "C's". "There have been news r e- ports," sdded my literary friend, "that Dr. Castro had troubles BACKWARD^RGLANCES (From the Scropbooks of the late A. W. Neville, Editor of The Parii News, 1936-1956) by our associations, and we can rely on the goodness of those.who are careful in the selection o f their friends.

Maybe somebody should let him kn o w about this money in Baltimore." The information that Fidel Castr overpaid his income ta x probably come as a jolt to investors whose property in Cuba has been expropriated. It'll be hard for them to believe Castro overpaid anything. A matron of my acquaintance named Mrs. Stewar Foley reports that the Kennedy campaign has stimulabed young romance i n nearby Virginia. She says her daughters, Mary, 17, and Jean, 16, have quadrupled in popularity since they became Golden Girls for Kennedy"They used to have just a reasonable number of invitations," relates Mrs. Foley, "but now they are on the phone from morning to night, screening, picking and choosing." "How do you account for this?" I asked the mother. "The explanation must be political," said (he mother. "The girls go out for Kennedy, and the boys go out for the girls." Every time Khrushchev erupts in the United Nations, and things grow worse in the Congo, I am heartened by a prediction thai was made to us many years ago. We were told that if we just got rid of the German Kaiser everything would be all right in the world. October 14, 1934 Some clippings from old newspapers that have been shown me relate lo the death of Rev. H. B. Warren, D. D., who was one of the early day preachers in Paris, Dr. Warren was also a lawyer and a member of the Paris bar, and was for several years one of (he leading citizens of this section of Texas. I do not know just when Dr. Warren came to Paris but he was pastor of the Cumberland Presbyterian church here several years. He was here at least as early as 1864, for on March 2 that year he solemnized the marriage of John \V. Jones arid Miss Neva Record and I find other marriage ceremonies at which he officiated ns late as the latter par! of IfUiB. A Tribute of Respecl published in .T church pnper written by Rev. N. P. Modrall staled that Mr. Warren wfts born in North Carolina, April 2R. IBOfi, and died in Sulphur Springs March 19, 1872. Mr. Modrall states that Dr. Warren was converted at a camp meeting in 1822 and put himself under the care of Elk Presbytery in '1823, was licensed to preach in 1825 and w.ns ordained in 1827. His marriage to Miss Mary Uenulon of Winchester, Tenn., was in 1828. Later the family came to Texas and Mrs. Warren died here in 1866. Mr. Modrall states that Dr. Warren was of tali and manly physique with a voice like a trumpet and a fine flow of language. His education has been such as was possible in the common schools but he continued study through life and in addition to his English education had mastered several of the ancient languages. Just before h i s death he requested Mr. Modrall to preach his funeral discourse at the next meeting of the Texas synod. Two months before his death Dr. PAUL HARVEY The Ballad Of Brigitte Bardot You can't gel any responsib 1 e psychologist or psychiatrist t o analyze Brigitte Bardot from a distance. If she has sought professional counseling, the counselor is necessarily pledged t o silence by the ethics of his profession. So you and I will never kn o w what possesses a Brigitte Bardot to decide, on her 26th birthday, that she does not want to try for 27. All we know is that she slashed her wrists with a razor and overdosed herself with sleeping pills after telling friends she was "fed up." It is not impossible that this was an attention-seeking device o f carefully calculated limitations. But, psychologists agree that Jarnes Dean, at a similarly early age, never intended to kill himself. Yet he flirted with death until he caught up with it. Why? Again, no clinical diagnosis is valid and available which would apply to these individuals. But Dr. Berle Orris, student of Sig- rnund Freud and Havelock Ellis, suggests that "most young, rich and famous persons who try suicide cannot face some cataclysmic situation, because they are totally lacking in any reason "or being." You see, you and I can suffer al! manner of "slings and arrows of outrageous fortune," consoling ourselves with the idea lhat, "When I get enough money, everything will be all right," The average Individual can rur- vivc the tedium of daily existence because he "knows" that the fame or the male or the baby he longs for will come along someday, and then all the dark clouds will roll away. But for a Judy Garland or a Brigitte Bardot all of these "blessings" are realized at a very early age. They try an assortment of mates, have babies, know fame, want for nothing money can buy. . . Then suddenly discover there's nothing more to 'look forward to. There is nothing worth anticipating. The prizes sought have been won, but now what does she do for stimuli? There is no longer any reason for being. The nature of man demands that lie have a reason for being. If you have "used up" all the experiences this life can afford the suicide reasons, you might as well get it over with. It is a fundamental religi o u s faith which keeps most of us alive Religion, whether institutional;?, ed or not, gives "purpose" lo a man's life, a reason to live. Unfortunately, many of our mix- cd-up show people and socialites seek advice from a psychiatris who is, himself, not religiously oriented. If the person, struggling for a "purpose," asks cosmic questions (he answer are not of this world Brigitle Bardof., a gradual c c teenager who has known so mucl of what the world calls success knows who, she is — but she doesn't know why she is. The frustrations of temp era mental husbands, inept busines associates, Paris traffic and per iodic bellyaches become intoler able when there is no longer a why to living. Man genuinely hungers for rcli Warren wrote to the church paper, from Sulphur Springs, where he had been nearly two years, in which he said: "I am in this place trying to preach. We are driving nn our house of worship to completion. A most excellent house it will be when finished. There are frequent accessions to our church. Let me have a few more days lo live and ordinary health and by the Grace of God I shall succeed in building up an excellent c o n- gregalion." Sulphur Springs Council No. 78, Friends of Temperance, through a committee, adopted resolutions of respect on the death of Dr. Warren, paying his high trib ti t e as a man and a minister. This committee wns R. M. Henderson, B. W. Foster, J. A. B. Putnam and J. K. Milam, all lending citizens of Sulphur Springs. W. C. Hurley also published a personal tribute to Dr. Warren and his work. In the Paris Press was published a notice lhat Dr. Warren's death was announced to the district court while it was on motion of Gen. S. B. Maxfiy the court adjourned for the day as a mark of respect. The court named Gen. Mnxey, H. S. Bennett, W. B. Wright, E. L. Dohoncy and V. W. Halo as a committee to prepare resolutions of respect which was done and the resolutions were published, paying tribute to Dr. Warren as a member of the bar, as a minister and » good man. The body was brought from Sulphur Springs '.o Paris and the funeral notices circulated here said, "The friends and acquaintances of Reverend Henry B. Warren, D. D., are requested to attend his funeral at the Old G r ave Yard in Paris at 2 o'clock this afternoon. The hearse containing the corpse will proceed at 1H o'clock from the residence of R.W. Brame March 21, 1872." POTOMAC FEVER WASHINGTON, D. C. - The stock market is acting as though it's afraid Kennedy may win—and name Nixon as Secretary of Commerce.

READER'S VIEWS AYs Issue Correct TO THE EDITOR: I note the editorial in the News of yesterday (October 5) calling attention to the issues in the Presidential campaign of 1928. You are exactly correct. The chief issue so far as Lamar County was concerned centered around the repeal stand of Al Smith. I recall many of the Paris people who were active on each side and I knew their allignment on the liquor gion—and starves to death without it. question in the The liquor issue was the dividing line and wets and drys were found on (he side they had always supported. The candidates were called upon to take their stand on the question. Al Smith was out and out for repeal. Herbert Hoover gave the usual Republican evasive answer. His reply widely circulated was: "I believe that prohibition is a noble experiment". By this he caught the solid support of the drys both in Lamar County and the State of Texas.
