The committee hasn't finished its work in the field of fascism and haU. A preliminary report on its findings to dnte says of Hie similarity between Communists and Fascists: "Botta seek to destroy our constitutional government and supplant it with a godless dictatorship in which the individual Ls deprived ot his rights and liberties to become an,abject slave of the stale." The committee picte as exnm- ples of Fascist and iiate groups, in that order, these two outfits: 1. The National Renaissance party — headed by Jumes H. Madole, of Beacon. N.Y. — with a monthly publication nailed The Bulletin and a following of perhaps Gas Ruling Said Ready By January 1 LITTLE ROCK (B—A decision 'on Arkansns Louisiana Gas Co.'s application for a $3,654.000 n yenr rate increase is expected to be announced, by Jan. 1.

The Christian Educational Assn. — headed. l>y a ffiihcr-son loam, Condc J. McGmluy and C. J. McOinley Jr., of Union, N.J. — with a .semimonthly publication called Common Sense. The committee says the Communists and Fascists "derive strength by dividing their opposition —• communism choosing to set class against class, while fascism incites racial and religious discord." It adds: "Despite the similarities between communism nnd fascism — their propaganda to the effect that caeti is the foremost opponent of the other U undoubtedly » major contributor to whatever .support eitch has been able to muster in our population . . ." A.s for hate K™U|).S. the committee snys they appeal to the unwary by a cynical use of concepts having a dt-ep emotional appeal to the majority of decent citizeas — love of God. country, home; or antipathy to communism. A m id protestations of patriotism and rellRious devotion, these groups propasftte honxcs and .smears aimed at setting creed against creed and race against race," the report says. Some of the same people write for both The Bulletin and Common Sense, according to the committee, which says a number of Individuals notorious for their efforts to crejite a nationwide Fascist organization in the United States In the 1030s" are contributing to McGinley's publication. AdmircK littler This Is some of what the committee says of Madole's Renaissance ptu'ty: It preaches admiration for Hitler, hatred for Jcw.s; , it tries to Imitate the Nazis with tin "elite SUnrd" which wears lightning bolts Instead of swastikas on arm bands; ft appeals to violence and holds street meetings which often end In .stine-flinging ;and calls for a FaKiil.-it government in the United Stales. And this Is purl o( wbnl the committee rcpoH.s on (he McOinley group: It preaches hiilred of Jews and Negroes; is pro-Nazi; it calls "Aiilni and Tkc" Marxist sluogtvv, it uses its publication "almost, exclusively" ns a "vehicle for the exploitut Ion of ignorance,, prejudice itnd fcnr"; and through the columns of Common Sense the Me- Oinley.s "tippciir lo serve us n i artiiK-hous* 1 for hate prnpitgiui- disls throughout the country."

Sycamore £ Santa says, and we do, loo: liolid // \ \ Business Machines Co. V. E. Calrery C. D. Hood ONE SOLITARY LIFE H ERE is a man who was born in an obscure village, the child of a peasant woman. He grew up in.another obscure village. He worked in a carpenter shop until He was thirty, and then for three years He was an itinerant preacher. He never wrott a book. He never held an office. He never owned a home. He never set foot inside a big city. He never travelled two hundred miles from the place where He was born. He had no credentials but Himself. He had nothing to do with this world except the naked power of His divine manhood. While still a young man, the tide of popular opinion turned against Him. His friends ran away. One of them denied Him. He was turned over to His enemies. He went through the mockery of a trial. He was nailed upon a cross between two thieves. His executioners gambled for the only piece of property He had on earth while He was dying—and that was His coat. When He was dead He was taken down and laid in a borrowed grave through the pity of a friend. Nineteen wide centuries have come and gone and today He is the centerpiece of the human race and the leader of progress. I am far within the mark when I say that all the armies that ever marched and all the navies that ever were built, and all the parliaments that ever sat, and all the kings that ever reigned, put together have not affected , the life of any upon this earth as powerfully as that One Solitary Life. To each and every one-we wish the Merriest Christmas ever! Blytheville Water Co. f
