FOBL1BHBI EVERY SATURDAY BY MELVIN JOHNSON INCORPORATED BENJAMIN F. JOHNSON, Pmldeat and Tnunnr MARY MELVIN, Vlca-PrMldent and Sacretarr. Eatand at the Poitoffic* at Denton. Md.. »i tt~"" elan mall matter. Saturday Morninjj, December 10, 1938 THE BIBLE EARNS A NEW TITLE Elsewhere in this issue appears statement from the Governor ( Maryland endorsing Universal Biblt Sunday to be observed in the churches of the country on December 11. The theme for this year's celebration h "and Now--in a Thousand TongJes' for recently the Scriptures appearei in the one thousandth language into which they have been translated. The American Bible Socity is celebrating the event by the publishing of a commemorative volume entitled "The Book of a Thousand Tongues" in which are facsimiles of pages or paragraphs from almost all of the languages into which the Scripture have been translated. Whatever one's religion, this is : fact that should command the respect of all serious-minded people. The Bible is more than just another book It is a world institution. Other books have had phenomenal sales for a few years--one recent volume running above a million copies in the first year and a half of publication. Borne books have been translated into a score or more of languages--but it is interesting to note that the leader in this field, Charles M. Sheldon' "In His Steps" and John Bunyan' "Pilgrim's Progress" are both based directly upon the Bible. But the Scriptures have passed into more than a thousand languages, and th sales of Bibles, Testaments, and For dons have run into the tens of mil lions every year for scores of years For the thirteenth successive yeai the American Bible Society, the larg est distributors of Scriptures in thi: country, last year reported a distribu tion of over 7,000,000 volumes. Since its organization in 1816 the Societj has circulated over 283,000,000 vol . times. Long ago the entire Bible wai translated into all the great Ian guages of the world. In' recent years beginnings have been made in the dialects of the countless tribes in Asia, Africa, and the Islands of the Sea. It is estimated that nine-tenth of the people of the world might no\v read some portion of the Bible in their own tongue. When Americans recall that their fair land with it- schools and colleges, its churches, ita culture, its courts, its freedom anc its vast and efficient humanitarian enterprises--the things that make America great--have come from th teachings of the Bible brought here by our forefathers three hundret years ago, it is a fair question to ask if Americans could do anything better for the world in its present neei of freedom and enlightenment than to encourage the wider circulation ol the Scriptures which now have been made intelligible to most of the people of the world. ECONOMIC HIGHLIGHTS If you want to spoil a pleasant day for a politician, just whisper the word "pension" to him. It's an odds- on bet that he will be visited with a terrific -headache. For the old-age assistance problem is rapidly reaching the stature of our Number 1 domestic issue. As an AP writer, John Hightower puts it, "Voices too feeble to carry across the family parlor may · echo in stentorian tones throughout the halls of Congress this winter." The next Congress may do little or nothing about it. But, unless a miracle occurs, some not far distant Congress is going to be forced to tackle the problem and get down to cases. The issue is not a political one, in any partisan sense. The idea that came into the mind of Dr. Townsend when he looked out of his window a few years ago and saw a pathetic old woman searching in a garbage can for food, has reached gigantic proportions--and has come to bedevil and worry Republicans as well as Democrats. It is especially embarrissing to the Democrats now, because they are in power. A shift in party power would put it up to the Republicans. The pension leaders are definitely dissatisfied with the Administration's enacted social security legislation. They feel that it offers the indigent old a bone, instead of a decent meal, ment should and could substantially They are convinced that the gbvern- increase the amount of pensions. They think that the Federal govern ment should take the lead, and that then the states will follow and agree to do their part of the job. From the standpoint of our lawmakers, the whole thing is a nightmare. They feel that the country could not stand increases in benefits to anywhere near current demands. They can produce well-known economists by the bushel to testify that auch ideas for financing pensions as Dr. Townsend's "velocity dollar" are unworkable and fantastic. But this does them no good when they an; confronted with the fact that the pension-advocates represent and command millions of votes. And that is why there has been i-o much political pussyfooting on the subject of pensions by candidates for office. Almost all job-seekers endorse, in the vaguest terms they can get away with, tHe principle of adequate and even lavish aid for the aged needy. Mftst of them once they've successfully convinced the voters of their worth, try to get the whole topic as much out of the limelight as possible. This does not necessarily mean such men are insincere. Some of them strongly feel that benefits must be increased, yet do nothing about it-simply because they haven't got the answers to the tremendous questions, principally financial, that arise. They want to move--but they can't sec a clear path ahead. NtawSPAPERflflCHIVE® »-- Still another weakness of the pension movement is found in internal lickering. The Townsend Plan organization, for instance, is tplit into u dozen factions. Some of the early eadors have deserted the Doctor, and arc leading opposed blocs of their own. Furthermore, the fact that there is competition in the fit-Id--such' ns the California thirty-dollDrs-every- Thursday proposal (which was beaten last election, though the movement's gubernatorial and senatorial candi dates were elected) makes a united front impossible. President Roosevelt has definitely turned thumbs down on the more extreme proposals, calling them "short cuts to Utopia" and referring to their sponsors as "the lunatic fringe." It is known thnt he has instructed his Con gressional lieutenants to do anything they can to keep the i ! sue an the sidelines, as he believes thnt Jt ini perils the success of his own mure moderate program. But it begins tn look as if matters qre approaching pomothing of a crisis, where no one can long keep the pot from boiling over. And when that happens, you'll see fireworks such as you've rarely seen before. --oOo-- The resignation of Attorney-Genernl Cummings did not come as a surprise It marks the start, in the opinion of a number of Washington exports, of what is likely to be a major Cabinet shake-up. Some of the members want to return to private Ijfc, largely for economic reasons. Others, it Is nald have incurred presidential dt=plcas ure. It has long been said that Jim Farley planned to leave the Cabinet, and was only restrained because party leaders pled with him to keep his job long enough to handle the elections It is possible he will now resign shortly. Newsweek also names Secretaries Swanson, Perkins, Roper and Wood ring as being among those who may leave Wa-hington, of their own vo\l tion or otherwise. In the meantime, it is the accepted opinion that Solicitor General Jack son will take Mr. Cummings' place It is taken for granted in most informed quarters that Harry Hopkins will be tendered a Cabinet post before long--and that there will be a white-hot battle in the Senate when his name comes up for confirmation. RESPONSIBILITY OF CONGRESS Several grave questions that concern peace and war have become the responsibility of the new ^Congress that will meet next month. The international situation can be described in the single word--BAD. It offers a challenge to statesmanship, and not a test of lung power lo convince the public that America has to be rulec by high-p're-sure political appeals, Senate Leader McNary for the Republicans says that "responsibility for legislation still rests with the Democrats," which is all right so far as recognizing the power of the majority party, but Mr. McNary is mistaken if he is suggesting an alibi for the minorities. War, or peace is not the responsibility of political parties--not at all! In the present day legislators of both the old parties are warned that great difficulties will be found in the paths ahead unless the annual Government deficits are reduced. Obviously the only way to reduce them is to cut down running expenses. This condition turns the national spotlight on relief. The Federal government commenced administering relief to flood sufferers, and unfortunates in other disaster more than 20 years ago, and in order to meet grave emergencies the New Deal assumed full authority and made relief a national business. There are strong- trends in both parties to pass administration of relief back to the States. Congress will undoubtedly agree to continue Federal backing, but a fight seems certain over the issue of continuing the Government agencies. BETWEEN WAR AND PEACE Two weeks ago in this column I pointed to signs here and there thut the Pre-ident's armament program, looked to as a measure that would unite Congress, might not, after all, prove such a hanpy thought from that point of view. Today, opposition to :he program is the big news-story in metropolitan papers. The new armament program was of counse set forth as a national defense measure. Any program honestly based on a careful study of what iind and how much of an army and navy we need to protect this country against attack would unite Congress and the people. Opposition to the President 1 !; program is rising high and wide because the program w.-Jch vould tax the American people more 1 :ieavily than they have cvur been taxed before is not based on any clear statement of what the army arc to be used for or on any careful study by military men of what kind of armaments will give us the best possible defense. In other words, there is every indication that the White House and the State Department, in urging what amounts to a revolution in our armament policy, have other purposes ;han national defense in mind. Washington newspaper writers are calling the armament program tha Fourth Mew Deal--that is, another attempt on the part of the Administration to spend itself out of the economic difficulties. Two remarks of New Dealers are being quoted here as a busis for the belief that this is what the rearmament program i-. The remark 'rom the source highest up was made n answer to a statement some months ago that the President had pulled about the last rabbit out of he hat. The New Dealer said: "Oh, no, he hasn't. There i; still the battleship rabbit." Another man not remote from New Deal policy making, shortly after tho ast relief appropriation was pai sed said in response to an expressed fear of war: "You don't negd to worry about war now, but if we hadn't got- en thnt relief money, it might have heen different." Aside from another spending effort he armament program plays in with other Administration purposes. It backs up the obvinurs determination of the Administration to'establish the power of the United States throughout the Western Heniispheix-. PIN haps more important than this, it puts a punch behind the vcrbul attacks en dictators repeatedly nuule by Administration spokesmen, mid would make it easy to take a veal hand in European affairs. As a spending venture, thoie scums to be division of opinion even unions New Dealciv; as to the value of tlio armament proposals. The remark of Isudor Lubin in opening tho Monopoly Hearing was highly significant. In citing the tremendous \n-s from unemployment, he said that the effect on tho country was the same- a; if sill the workers in industry had taken n vacation for fourteen months "or worked on armaments." In other words, capital that is spent on armaments is frozen. Work that i; spent on armaments, so far as improving of economic conditions is concerned, might just as well not be done. It would seem to be unnecea ary for this country to learn that fact f i o m liitti-v experience, since England has already offered us proof that armament building sends the cost of liv- injj up and the standard of living down. England has within the last few weeks shown us another alarming outgrowth of a great armament program. Registration--thnt la to Ray-conscription of labor has been introduced in England at the moment for armament jobs, but this must soon lead to conscription of all labor with every mnn told exactly what job he is to do. Thl, policy is freely described by British writers ns "the first step toward eventual conscription for war service"--toward the universal military service which, from the beginning, the great leaders of this country hayo recognized would prove fatal to democratic government. GOOD MORALS AND GOOD NEIGHBORS The building up of trade between the nations of the New World L, the main economic problem of the Conference at Lima. United States ships are providing the transportation for goods and products to all Latin- American nations. Credit facilities to carry on many times the present volume of commerce have been created with the backing of the United States Government. The gesture by the United States to place the defense of tho two continents of the Western Hemisphere on a cooperative basis is n prctly liberal offer inasmuch as the United States will hove to foot most of the bills. American capital and cnterpria- have pioneered in developing the natural resources of Latin-America. Europe wedgud in after we opened the way. It is not over-stating historical and statistical facts to add that the United States has always pursued lofty ideals in backing ur the weaker Republics of the South, which we promised to protect--not for a few weeks, or years--but, forever. Now, Mexico, just beyond our borders, goes with its delegates to tho Pan-American Conference, planning with other nation; for the "codification of international law," and urging the doctrine of Calvo of Argentine "that the collection of pecuniary claims made by the citizen; of one country against the government nf another country should never br made by force." The work of the Lima Conference involves moral problems. If governments lack morals they cannot profess to be good neighbors. Mexico is a black sheep in the international flock. "It is clear," says the Jourml of Commerce of New York "that fair treatment for American investors, regardless of whether they arc bondholders, oil companies or other enterprises is in no sense a consequence of fear of nrmcd might." United States soldiers chased Mexican border-raiders back into their hills a number of years ago, but we are not at all apt to use armed "force" as a collection agency. The Mexican press mis-used the Calvo doctrine for home consumption. The fact is that Mexico go:s t · Lima with "unclean hand ". It gave preference to Germany in foreign trade; 'and aid and comfort to Russia in practice and preaching communistic methods--most notable during the recent "international labor conference" in its Capital City. Many American newspapers are urging the Lima Conference to issue a strong declaration to check further "flagrant wrongs" by one nation upon the people of another nation. This pnrticuiatly interests the United States inasmuch :s our cay manner so frequently makes us the goat. A STUDY OF AMERICAN BUSINESS The public will liavi- the benefit of the sounding boaid fuinishcd in the monopoly investigation tlutt will show that there exisd and is maintained highly competitive conditons, und n constant lowering of prices for n piuduct that is always being im- piovt'd. The Committee cpncars anxious to convey the impression t h a t it is not antagonistic to good bu iness methods «nd the automobile industry liiis been selected to show n ftk'iidly stai t, :ind thereby break down antagonism that is being direct- l e d io\\anis the Committee. The Committee expects to make nn | early i tudy of insurance companies, investment banking, tiade associations, anti-trust laws, and interlock| ing ditectorate.s. Twenty=Five Years Ago Taken From The Journal of 25 Years AKO This Week. Mj'itli' Sanger, who became the bride of Jo.siah II. Brumbaugh. Tho cuo- inony wn- pel-formed by Itev: Lev! H.

Church heu, (lied in Wellington on Sunday MARINES THE THREE WHO DARED The performance record of American business finally comes under the spotlight ns the Joint Cungius.sioiiiil- Executivc Monopoly Committee br- ;ins its sessions. It has "00 thousand dollars at its command lor the pui-- posc of pursuing invcsi.i;;r.:ions into the causes of concentration an I control of business; the price sy. tern an.l the price levels, the k-vr!s of trpdi 1 . employment, profits, consumption and effects upon taxation, patents, competition, and every feature of Americ.ii 1 business that it is pn sihle to link with the new policies of the govtin- mcnt. This Committee was authorized last June by Congress. Since thnt time the Comirittee has built up a staff of more tlian 100, mid thaii preliminary investigations are i orving as amunition for G o v p i n m z n t economists in presenting lengthy out- ines to the Monopoly C'«nim:t.'es. The Committee starts off c.xaminn- :ions with the automobile industry, nto_ its practice; of the "use, distri- jution and pooling of patents." Monopoly investigators indicated that the testimony about the automobile industry is likely to present a icture of unusual interest inasmuch as the indurtry is comparatively new, modern and progressive--which is more than might be admitted concerning some nineteenth century industries. High in the hills of Haiti stood a former French stronghold, named Foit Riviere. Within its walls Haitian de- pcradocs, who had been driven from one position to another, rallied for their last desperate stand against the U. S. Marines. Built of rock, with loopholed masonry walls, it offered a formidable defensive position for the cneni}. Cautiously a force of marines i-ur- rounded the fort and laid their plans for an attack in November, 1915. They had no artillery. Obviously it would be extremely hazardous to attempt to scale the walls, but one of the groups found a narrow aperture in the fort where a possible entry could be made. Upon the discovery'of this breach thi: detachment oC marines pressed forward with the ultimate objective of forcing their wuj through the gap and coming to grips with the enemy, whose numbers were unknown. A surprise attack through this breach seemed the most feasible plan. Yet, it was so narrow that only one man at a time couUl squeeze through. In the vun of thi; group were three marines. They decided to risk dashing through the aperture. Beyond that point there was bound to be instantaneous action, grim fighting, perhaps death. Tho small opening prevented any concerted assault. The sergeant who first jumped through the breach and the two men who immediately followed him gambled with their live--and won. Tho conquest of the outlaw gairison was speedily completed, partly through the disregard of danger exhibited by the fivst three marines, who later were awarded Congressional Medals of Honor.

Mr. Peter Clark, of Denton, on November 22nd attended at Sandtown a reunion of the boys and girl- of 1848-9 who were pupils there about sixty-five ycnrs ago. There were about 150 persons at the gathering, which Mr. T. II. Dill, of Columbus, Ohio, one of the old boys who spoke, said had no parallel in this country. The visitor.; came in atitos, and various kinds of vehicles, some from long distances. The mairiagc of Miss Florence Louise Turner, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J.
