Others may disagree bue we find the current trend in popular music refreshing Gone are the June-moon -croon groaners Gone are the songs playing on an endless love theme and the Tin Pan Alley blues which led the nation’s hit parades for years Instead we are witnessing an amazing growth in popularity of hillbilly songs now dignified by the name “country" songs Such musical hits as “Tennessee Waltz" “On Top of Old The Most Dangerous Jittery citizens who have kept a particularly close check on the dates of world events of gravity must be especially nervous on Sundays these days A little research discloses that Sunday has a reputation as a day of big war-time news breaks The following events all transpired on Sundays: Sept 3 1939 — World War II started as Hitler attacked Poland June 22 1941— Nazis invaded Russia Dec 7 1941— U S entered war after Japs attacked Pearl Smoky" “Goodnight Irene" ?nd others have proven that no longer does New York rule the lyrical roost that the tastes and preferences of other parts of America are dominant Even Ezio Pinza of South Pacific fame has just recorded a rollicking number titled “Li'l Old State of Texas” A healthy sign and anyday now we may expect to hear that Tex Ritter and Roy Acuff have been signed up by the Metropolitan Day of the Week Harbor Aug 5 1945 — Atomic age officially arrived when an A-Bomb blasted Hiroshima June 25 1950— North Korean Communists invaded South Korea We may take some comfort however from the fact that on Sunday July 8 1951 North Korean and Chinese Communist officers met with representatives of the United Nations supreme commander to prepare for peace negotiations aimed at ending the war --- — i — innnnruiru-- RADIO AND TELEVISION SCHEDULES friNL-UUke-ASC ftBML-FM-IMfma TONIGHT WIBB lIMkt MMAZ-MOkfCBB WMAZ-F3ff8lme HSEX-lRHlke-MBS WSLX-FM-OOOmc 100 Nawa-Eporta 0 IS Bona ol 0 X) Th Pioneer 0 40 Counn Al Kras and Serenade Kewa-Loot-Found Safety Club Newo Sundown Serenade Lone Ranger with Sundown Serenade Silver and Tonta Swing Muic Bandktand and News Dixie Rhythm Q I TELEVISION WAGA-TV Chaaatl 0 P M 0 00 Feature Film 0 IS Logan Sittere 0 10 CHS News 040 TV'eTop Turn 700 Pantomime Qt T OO Ciaco Kid 0 00 Horat-c Heidi 010 You Asked fm 00 Summer Then 10 no Hollywood 10 IS Opening Nighl 1030 World Newi A M Tueiday 10 !f Teel Pattern I" IS Today s Fealu 10 M Sink It Rich 11 00 steva Allan P- M Tueiday !i'K Iv nch 1230 Carry Moore 1 First 100 Year! 141 Vanity Fair 00 Your Own Hnr tn Cl 310 Feature Film 1 00 Homemaker! 1 1 twhenge 0 10 School ol Air E'oiure Film 4 IS World Newa 4ao Captain Vidca 0 00 WAGA'S 5 IS Wild Waal 051 Nswa WNB-TV Chaaatl I F SI 0 00 Ernie Kavar 0 10 Spin a Cadat 0 41 hawtCarava T‘0O Camio Theai 710 Eleanor Stet 0 00 Who Said Th 0K Light!

"Nor all your tears wash out a word ol it" OMAR KHAYYAM E Haldeman-Julius is dead Born July 30 1389 in the slums of Philadelphia of Russian Jewish parents he identified himself with the newspaper and publishing business and became internationally known as the publisher of “Little Blue Books' which sold by the millions He made a comfortable fortune and owned a palatial mansion in Girard Kansas You would think that the son of immigrants who came up “on the other side of the tracks” would have appreciated America the country that gave him the opportunity to develop and capitalize upon his admitted talents in the writing and publishing field Not so He sneered at the American way of life he ridiculed all religions and referred to all believers as dolts and fools He was proud to call himself an atheist he championed the cause of Russia and his monthly newspaper followed the Communist line in practically all major details His radicalism came to this corner's attention some two years ago when someone sent me a copy of his American Freeman The blasphemous cartoons the violent attacks upon all things Christian his sneering references to this country as “The Neurotic States of Amurica” and the otherwise objectionable material within the pages of The American Freeman so infuriated me ihal I wrote a column about him The feud was on For more than two years K llaldeman-Julius referred to me as “the Westbrook Pegler-George Sokolsky of the South” Whenever he mentioned me tthU-h was in practically every issue he called me “a literary prostitute and an intellectual crook” Although he was a millionaire he resented my exposing ( his habit of soliciting contributions from Ignorant and misguided subscribers of his unAmerlcan periodicals Last summer regular readers of this column will recall the details of this gov ernment's suit against Haldeman-Julius for Income tax evasion during the last World War At that time he was bitterly denouncing America and the United Nations for trying tn stop Communistic aggression in Korea and was loud in claiming that Russia had no part in stirring up this Asiatic cauldron of destruction and death He even went so far as to state that Russia has never interferred with the internal affairs of any country at any time nor sought to dominate the lives of any people A Federal jury in Kansas City found Haldeman-Julius guilty of income tax evasion as charged and he was sentenced to a term in Federal prison although at the time of his death his lawyers were arguing for a new trial and he was free under $2000 bond Things were catching up with Haldeman-Julius It was necessary to combine The American Freeman with his equally radical Critic and Guide magazine Evidently the sale of his Little Blue Books fell off he-rause he began to run page ads in the large metropolitan newspapers and magazines offering them at reduced prices He announced that he was going out of the publishing business entirely and devote the rest of his time to writing novels short stories articles etc “until he joined the angels” according to his advertising publicity But the God he didn't believe existed had other plans for him so all the atuff he was going to write won't be written In fart the Associated Press story didn't even refer to him as a writer It said “E Haldeman-Julius nationally known publisher of the "Little Blue Books” was found dead in a swimming pool at his palatial home tonight Sheriff Elmer Knerbone said there was no indication of suicide The sheriff quoted Dr E G Iightfoot ss saying he had treated the publisher for a heart ailment for 18 months" The circumstances of Haldeman-Julius’ death are immaterial The tragic thing is that he could have been a great boon to humanity instead of confusing and deluding a great many people who allowed him to do their thinking for them He had been content tn publish the great works of famous writers at a cost attractive tn the underprivileged and let it go at that he would have accomplished a noble purpose He chose to mess it up with false Ideologies and atheistic and unpatriotic behavior The record has been written in the Book of Life and nothingcan be done to change it But a lesson is to be learned If we but take the time to study it rnnriivVYYYYVirirYYYiVivvYVniinrvWYYvijYi'rViri‘ii'“ JOE PARHAM Suicide 1 DAFFYNITION No 2002: Home Where part of the family

The preceding verse tells us — “the divine order which belongs to faith" The divine order is the Divine Order — the Kingdom of God That Divine Order was embodied In the Divine Person — Jesus Christ We are therefore disciplined by a Person who embodies an Order an embodiment which makes our discipline at once personal and at once social — personal in that it is related to a Person and social in that it is related tn a new Order embodied in that rerson Disciplined to the embodied Kingdom the Christian is hound tn out-think to outlive tn outlie because the Kingdom nut-experiences every other way of life We ran give ourselves without question to the Christian discipline O God this discipline to which I hare given myself it It! Help me nuw to fee disciplined in this Way wyth no reservations and with no hesitations May I fling every doubt and fear and hestitation to the winds As the ancient Hebrew said: "1 take the yoke of the Kingdom" 1 know I shall find that yoke easy for it U my life!
