Bible Thought for Today Bat we coaU be mnch BWK Uke him rii^t now if we wonld: I shall be satisfied when I awake with thy likeness.—Pfi. 17:15. THE NEED IS NOW Most business men indulge themselves in a subscription to some business advisory service which essays to give them the "inside" dope on what is coming up in Washington and how to prepare for it. , The one I subscribe to declares that the lean, rugged civilian :ecpnomy we have all been talking :about ever since the war began •is now actually on the way; that 'there is just one order governhig Washington agencies today: "Plan and act as though the war in E UT rope were going to last indefinitely." , That's all right with me. The only pity is that somebody didn't get the same bright idea about six months or a year ago Instead of figuring that the war was won when we reached Paris. It takes time to push a democracy around, and many months of precious time have already been'lost. It Is now—today—that we need teas of thousands of additional workers in virious war Industries scattered throughout the country. Every day that Is lost In getting them there is a day lost toward our total war effort and victory. I suggest that congress keep this in mind as It ponderously rtioves toward consideration of the manpower measures before it now. 1 would twn .ittve the temerity to suggest tiut instead of boldhig hetarings" in order to learn what the pnsidaat of the C. 1. a, the chairman of the aodaUst-party, and the secretary of the dog catcbm union think about It, they go ahead and pass a bill getting some people to work! The best of all possible manpower bills will be the worst of all possible manpower biUs if it takes six months to get it passed. I think universal service is the only logical, fair, and complete answer. But if a 4-F bill can be passed quicker, let's have that first and follow with universal service later or whatever else the situation may demand. Let's have no fooling around so rlong'as millions of American sol- xiiers are facing enemy guns on jfronts throughout the World. : If an extra ton of anunualtlto will save one of these soldier's liVes, for goodness sake let's ha»e that ton of ammunition. And let's have it now while it wiU save that soldier's life, iiot after the war Is over." soIdienuBon: their conviction on chaigar Of. dtewrtlon, and selling stolen" amy i^Une to Paris ci- 'Nnr«er« they isolated casee. One of'the, major supply problems behind, the i front .in'. France has been the dtreistan of < military goods into black market channels by American soldiers, by men wearing the uniform of. our country, by men who axe willing to sell out their own buddies right on the battlefield for cash. Hundreds, perhaps thousands of them have, been involved. Some are at lost being caught, convicted, and given sentences running all the way from ten years Imprisonment to death. ^t seems Incredible that this should happen. But it only proves, I,suppose, that character is seldom changed by circumstance, environment; or the kind of clothes a man wears. • Just as there Is always a certain percentage of rascals here at home who would steal the last nickel from starving man if they had the chance, so the army also must automatically include about the same pareentage of utterly unprincipled wretches who would do anything anywhere any time for a price. Fortunately the percentage both at'home and in the armed forces remains pretty small. Otherwise one would despair of the human race altogether. MR. VANDENBERG'S SPEECH Senator Arthur Vandenberg, Republican and pre-war ia>lationist, helped launch the Senate's foreign policy debate with a speech that merits the attention and admiration of all friends of international rostwar peace. He was specific. He proposed an immediate treaty among tlje leading powers to demilitarize Germany and Japan permanently. This, he suggested, would remove the fear cf Axis militarism and the doubt of eventual American co-operation which apparently are driving Britain and Russia toward a course of unilateral and bilateral agreements, and power politics. He was practical. He proposed to allow the President prompt authorization of force to carry out the treaty. He also proposed eventual tunctlons of the Dumbarton Oaks plan calculated to cancel some foreseeable objections by "perfectionist" colleagues in the Senate. And, as an influential Republican; he charted a course of unity ond action for his party. His program is one of positive accomplishment, not negative opposition. It promises a wllllns, - constnicttwB partnership by the Senate minority In the great and fateful work ahead. Flag Carrier RASCALS EVEI^YWHERE ^ The meanest crumb' of comfort !o be foimd in the day's news is that not ALL the war-effort ftUl- Ures of America are attributable to (he beleaguered and abused "home front."

TT wag the middle of the after\ •'••noon' on the day of the dinner party bfefore Kitty found any time to sit dovm and rest. In preparing ; for such an occasion every nook and ^cranny of the. house had. to ;be cleaned, or so she thought Being distrustful of the interest of tJic house servants, in their, al. lotted tasks she followed them a»- ^slduousiy and pointed out duster corners and grimy wlndowpanes. ;She was in and out of the kitchen to see if the cooking were going •on according to plan. Tha Negro hutler had spent an hour oc. two polishing the silverware, then, she had him clean ^all the lamps and tiU them afresh with sperm oil. On the = dining table she planned \o have candles — pink candles Svith shades—^in her set of silver candlesticks. At last she concluded that Everything had been att«ided to and she sat down in an armchair by one of the parlor windows that overlooked Centre Street. With a Sigh she reflected that the street, which had been just a country road when tHeir house was built in 1790, was now the chief thoroughfare for entering the, town Irom the south. At this season, in the fall, Centre Street was noisy, nearly all day with cotton •Wagons bringing the season's cnw to market. "All well!" she thought. '-'One must take things as they Come." , . « . . 'T'HE. Earle house, or mansion, •*• as it was sometimes called, VvHis a medley of architectural f ^jsliions, like the houses of many well -io-do people in that era. The chief idea f its designer was to niiakc- it look imposing, and he had stfcceeded in accomplishing that purpose, though it was lacking iri other ways. .Across its vfront there was a. handsome portico which occupied the whole width of the house. FronTlts ou4r edge rose six tall, white columns. They ran to the top of ttie house and supptK 'ted the lofty roof oCthe pntico. Sqtieesed closei to; '4ha; roo&.wera: thfr second floor windows, aot-oompleteljr. overshadowed that, the bedrooms behind thaoi wer* in aenai-datkness nearly all day. The body of the residence did not measure up to the Greek temple boldness o€ its face. The moat qwcious place in the house was a wide ball which ran from the iront- door to the back. The rooms, with high ceilings, were smaH. and crowded -with furniture. On the ground floor there were four rooms, parlor (or living room), library, dining room and n 90-called "smoking room" which iv>d a billiard table. The meals were cooked in « kitchen in the yar'l and brought to the dining room under a covered way. The second floor had six bedrooms, including two rather large ones in the front. .The beds were wide and massive.. Each had lour heavy posts with a canopy and curtains. Only the two larger rooms hrd built-in closets; the small bedrooms were furnished with wardrobes. Tliere was no bathroom in the house, and of coiu'se no running water. When anyone wanted to take a bath the servants brought in a large circular wooden tub and filled it |,with buckets of water brought up from the weU. Each bedroom, had a handsome wasbjstand equipped with a pitcher and: a bowl of decorative. china. . . Each ot the iouc rooms downstairs had a fireplace, and fires of pinewood. and hickory were kept going in all of them during the winter.monlhs—from December first to.the middle of March. There, were only a few pictures on the.walls and..most.of those were paintings gf.Jtitty Earle's relatives... In place of pictures some o£ the walls were covered by. Fi'Wich tapestoies, and here and there hung a strip Q£ ailk 'ColM'ed and flaming with Chinese embroidery. • » *• rpHE bouso stood in a plot of ••• about two acres. Between it and the street was a flower gar> den which, in the summer months, was fulltof roses and other flower.- ing plants. A wandered from the 20th century wfuld have observed, with interest, no doubt, that some tomatoes were growing among the flowers. Tomatoes, .were called "love apples"- in, those days and were considered poisonous, but they were raised in ^ower gardens because the red loye apples were pretty. Childrm ^were warned never to eat them oc oven to handle, them. Back, of the house stood tt»e stables, a bam arid some outhouses. To the left was a vegetable garden, a grape arbor and a small peach orchard. On the right, behind the kitchen, were.-tiu! cabins ot ttie Negro house servants. These cabins, built of ijoards, were whitewash«ii. Each cabin consisted of one room, and had a brick chimney, a door and a window. The slaves who lived in the cabins were not permitted to put up window curtains, for the patrol on making its rounds of slave quarters looked through the windows to see what the Negroes were doing. Before the front door of each cabin there was a porch. For carrying on the housework there were six servants besides two more outdoors. All the housework could have been done easily by three people if energy and briskness could have been put into slaves. But that was impossible, for the servants got no wages at all, and they had developed deliberation of movement, slowness of action, and - stupidity of com- prehensioa into an art It should be said, however, in justice to human nature, that the temptation to practice that art must be very strong in those who are naver paid for their work.
