Annihilation DangerFaces World: Lilje MINNEAPOLIS MV- The president of the Lutheran World Fedr eration Friday urged Lutherans around the world to face up realistically and boldly to world problems, Including "the possibility of universal annihilation." Bishop Hanns Lilje, Hannover, Germany, told the federation that "an internationale of technological civilization has arisen from which no part of the world is exempted." "We do not seek to escape from the world by retiring into cells of piety . . . but rather seek to orient ourselves toward Christ, who is the answer to all the anxieties, difficulties and fears of our generation," Bishop Lilje said in a sermon prepared for the assembly's opening plenary session. Overshadows All "Even the most serious social tensions and racial uprisings pale lo insignificance alongside the fact that among thousands of new technological possibilities a single one overshadows all others—the possibility of universal annihilation." Bishop Lilje said that even in Communist countries fear of weapons of annihilation is. ^beginning lo undermine their ideological security." He told the more than 700 delegates, representing 50 million Lutherans in 29 countries, that whenever the dark clouds of fear arise, racial and religious, political and economic differences disappear. "Like an electric current, there ought to go out from this international assembly a united stimulus of faith as we renew pledges of our allegiance to Christ," the bishop said, "because Christ is the only, the most important and the most effective liberator." Bishop Lajos Ordass of Hungary, opening the assembly Thursday night at the Municipal Auditorium, said that the fruits of Christ's death are personal freedom, freedom for service and the gift of Christian unity. Friends, Brothers "Although we may be living under entirely different earthly circumstances;" the bishop said, ''we are nevertheless friends and brothers of one body — the Universal Church of Christ." Bishop Ordass, one of several delegates from behind 4he Iron Curtain, was imprisoned for 20 months and in house arrest for six years for alleged dealings in foreign currency in Hungary. —He was-reinstated as Lutheran primate of Hungary last autumn, a. few days before the Hungarian uprising against Red domination. No Specific Incident: 'Better System'- Loveless Orders Iowa and FBI Checks on Persons Up for State Job Appointments DES MOINES (Jfc-6ov\ Herschel Loveless has directed that Iowa Bureau of Criminal Investigation and FBI checks be made henceforth on all persons up for appointment t- responsible state jobs through the stat«> personnel office, J. Rex Weddle personnel director, said Friday. "There was no specific incident that brought this up," Weddle said. "The governor thinks this is a tet ter system of employment than Has be§n followed in the past." "This is just goocl business policy," said Gilford Strand, executive assistant in the Iowa bureau. "It 's not particularly unusual. Industry is doing a lot of the name thing." The governor himself was in California to address the annual Iowa Picnic at Long Beach Saturday. The procedure is this: When the Liquor Control Commission or trie Tax Commission desires to hire a new employe through the personnel office, the Iowa bureau runs a check on the person through its records. Fingerprints are taken in duplicate. The bureau keeps one copy, and sends the other to the FBI in Washington. A check of FBI records and fingerprints also 10 Timet Herald, Carroll, Iowa Friday, Aug. H, 1957 is made. If the person has no serious record, he is cleared. Weddle said that since the new policy became effective Aug. 7, 35 checks have been run. Only one person failed to get clearance. Thirty-two of the checks were on persons the liquor commission in tends to appoint,' and three are up for appointment by the tax commission, Weddle said. The personnel director related that the governor directed that the checks be made on persons the two commission's contemplate hiring for responsible positions. But, Weddle continued, the procedure probably will be extended later to cover all job placements made through his office. This would include clerical help and stenographers. He said departments other than those whose employed cdme under his jurisdiction have had similar checks: made oh prospective em< ployes occasionally. Strand said that "Over the years, we have done considerable work for some of the state departments, especially, the liquor and tax commissions " It takes about 10 days to run the checks through the Iowa bureau and the FBI, Weddle said. In order to stfeect up the process, Weddle and Strand worked out a new form. It require! the job applicant t» provide all of the vital statistics. It also leaves space for the bureau to make its report. The result is a compact and quick reference, Weddle said. 687 Aid Cases Have Need of $250 a Month By HARRISON WEBER (Iowa Dally Press Assn.

Stork-Stylet Printed Pattern ent children cases having needs equal to or exceeding $250 per month. The state supreme court recently upheld a lower court's decision that a limit of $175 per month was unconstitutional. Welfare department employees presently are busy preparing an analysis on this study involving the 687 cases. 27,225 Receive Aid Mrs. Mary E. Huncke, (R), Des Moines, a board member, explained that there were 7,551 ADC cases, involving 27,225 individuals, receiving assistance in Iowa during June. "Of these cases, 9.1 per cent or 687 cases involving 5,038 individuals, have needs equal to or exceeding $250 per month. Although only 9.1 per cent of the cases are included in this study, 18.5 per cent of the individuals are included," she said. Mrs. Huncke pointed out that the remaining 90.9 per cent of the cases average 3.2 persons per case while the cases involving needs of $250 per month or more average 7.3 persons per case. Mrs. HuncKe stressed that of these cases whose needs equal or exceed $250 or more per month, only 56.5 per cent or 388 cases, actually received $250 or more from the department of social welfare and the remaining 43.5 per cent, or 299 cases, have income that results in their receiving less than that amount. The welfare official said one problem is finding a place to live for the larger families. Many landlords frown on renting to the larger families, and there are not as many big houses on the market today as in days past. The survey shows that the larger the family the less it pays for rent. Families with four to 13 eligible members for ADC received amounts for rent varying from a high of $46.13 for a family of five down to $26 for a family of 13 or more. Families who own their home are also given an allowance for maintenance, taxes and the like. This varied from a high of $43.88 for a family of seven down to $17.67 for a family of 13 or more. Just the contrary was true for personal allowance, or food, clothing and personal care. In this category the large families received the most and the small families the least. Amounts varied from a high of $364.32 for families of 13 or more down to $115.92 for a family of four. Fairly Constant Household allowance, or heating fuel, lights and water, was fairly constant with the large and small families. Amounts ranged from a high of $32.80 for families having 10 eligible members for ADC down to $20.83 for families of four. There is a big difference between amounts granted big and small families when it comes to continbus special allowances, or nursing care, restaurant meals, school expense, transportation and board and room. Large families again are on the low end of the totem pole with an average of $4.50 for families having 13 eligible members or more for ADC up to $90.04 (CQ) for families of four eligible members. Welfare officials point out the reason for this great fluctuation is because in many cases, especially in the smaller families, a sizeable sum is being spent for nursing home care, or it might be the mother is dead and the father has to send the children to a nursery while he works. In most instances in the smaller family unit it is because of conditions such as these that the family has applied for ADC assistance. Average needs for cases who rent varied from a low of $269 for families having four eligible members for ADC up to $421.56 for the family of 13 or more who are entitled to receive ADC payments. Average needs for cases who don't rent ranged from a high of $413.33 fov the family of 13 down to $255.16 for the family of four. If the 687 cases studied, 428 had some income and there were 259 that had none. V»y ^^fl^fc%%koo *^JJifcSjl >H) Lucky Mom-to-bel Our Printed Pattern gives you the prettiest tops In fashion!
