Dr. Charles Malik, representative of Lebanon, which is celebrat- *d in Biblical lore, drew on the ·pirituil heritage of his country to recall the world to the essentials of lasting strength. Friends would not fight, even if they had atomic bombs, he observed, while enemies will fight if they have only their bare fists. Peace depends, then, on friendship and understanding In an atmosphere of trust Kalik's admonition hr.d the ring Of the old prophets. He warned that pesce is the boon of patient and undespairing endeavor. And he *dded: "Only by hard and sometimes thankless work; only as we never tire of discussion and negotiation; Only as we determine to face the Ultimate spiritual crisis in the world today; only as we humbly yield to every impulse of love and food will, trusting that there is in men a spark that will never foil to respond to truth; only as the underlying common humanity and spirituality between the great Russian world and the great Western world is sought, discovered and promoted; only as we invoke in all this the original positive spirit of friendship; only as we do these things can we hope in time and perhaps not without suffering to in- due* the necessary political, moral «rd Spiritual conditions which will ttiakft peace--real peace, enduring peace--In the first Instance pos- Those Rugged Germs Many a physician predicted it, and now there's no doubt about it, Those wonder drugs, the antibiotics, aren't as effective as they Used to be. Penicillin, streptomycin, aureomycin, and chloromyce- tln all have a lot in common now with DDT, which once upon a time was a wonder Insecticide. The flies died likp flics. Then it turned out that some survived »nd pretty soon flies that lived to breed were extra rugijed. The "ruggeder" they got, the less power DDT had to knock 'cm. At Walter Reed Hospital, Washington, Army doctors have run some careful experiments on a prima example of bad germ--the golden staphylococcus. In 1947 only 30 per cent of these (terms Could survive a dose of penicillin. Today more than 60 per cent can. The only golden staphylococci found to give in without a fight nowadays are those from Korea. The people there, unlike Americans, have not been on the receiving end of penicillin for al- -»iost any sort of infection. Penicillin and others of the older antibiotics are not to be sneezed at yet. All are still potent safeguards of health even if they are not as potent as formerly. Yet the removal of their halo moans that medical science must look hard for new germ killers--and keep looking. If anything has been learned about miracle drugs it is just this. They aren't miraculous enough to roll forever. Boyle Column By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK Nov. 29 M-Look, by the time you read this tale, it w'ill be time to «o to bed. Then will you seek your sleep? There ar« no Birds flying so late. Here is your story: It is about a wondrou* bird, . . The bird that all men love and always flies away. She has many names. , . But one man knew her as Hermione. If you, say that name softly, as If you liked it, it has * bell tone to it---far away. Why, the way I talk about it you would' think she really were a ' woman--and near. And yet she is--how far? Tell me the miles in de-; sire? I don't know just why I joined the bird watchers. 1 guess they all had Just been looking for something they hadn't been able to find --and figured it would have wings if they did find it. And 1 Ruess it must nave felt that way, too. Anyway I was restless, and this life fell 'heavy upon me. and to go with them lifted a little of the weight. Really, I guess, the sad catalogie of bird watching meant nothing much to me. But it gave me a kind of discipline of feathers. I counted the colors and the names of birds as a duty and an opportunity as I saw them--my rosary of wings. Each had a separate personality, anchored to something 1 had known. The wren was a fretful wife, tied to her childten and trying to rule the world. The thrush was Caruso in the bush, saying the Metroooli- tan Opera needed him and all he required as a platform was a twig. O, the cloud of hovering feathers -it became my world. I discovered the haunt of the clinging bat by day. 1 .stayed awake to hear the hoot of the owl by night. The music of this world I heard--I swear 1 got so I could hear a bud unfold upon a branch in spring as well as I could hear a dry leaf crackle under foot In November. And all the time I searched for the rose-breasted grosebeak. That is what I wanted most to see. And one day. walking all alone in a forest glade, I saw the bird I s o u g h t -- t h e rose-breasted grosbeak. He was perched in a tree of silver. And as 1 watched, fearful of stirring her to flight, she turned into a fail girl and she said to me: '"I am Hermione., whom you look for. And I am yours forever." Well, I reached out. . . Not really to catch and hold her. you know. . . But just to brush her with the hand of longing And she turned again Into a bird. She lifted her wings and left the tree. . .And then a feathered thunderbolt struck her, a hawk from high, and carried her listless away And I never saw her any more. What bird Is there now to watch for" Hermione is gone. Sweet vanished Hermlonc. . . Leaving the frafirance of a dream behind you. . . Every man dre«m . . . And nothing to remember but the lightning bolt that flared and left . .Leaving nothing but duty forever. Look, it time to RO to bed. Who ever really saw a rose-breasted grot-benk 1 ' ' Now w i l l you go to sleep" There arc no birds flying now. What can you hope to see.'

Twenty Years Ago Hems From The Columns Of The News, Nov. 29, 1931. Causes Of Unemployment By ROGER W. BAB8ON BABSON PARK, Mass, Nov. 29 --Every manufacturer, retailer, and consumer U affected by market movement*. This especially applies to a consumer whose family depends upon the employment of its father or other members. Therefore, whether you own * business or a share of stock, Roger W. B»b«on or are dependent on a job, you should be much interested In the business cycle--and what causes business to improve or to decline. The Influence Of Debt The changing indebtedness of families, business concerns and governments-at-war is the apparent factor causing the long-term "ups and downs." When people are freely making installment purchases, business improves and more jobs at higher wages follow. When, however, people reduce their installment purchases retail trade declines. Then inventories pile up so that retailers are unable to meet their bank" loans. Hence, they reduce their purchases of new goods. This causes manufacturers to lay off help, which further reduces consumers' purchasing power. As a result, the country heads for a depression. During depressions every reader of this column suffers. As voluntary increases in indebtedness stimulate business, so forced reduction of debt hastens a decline. It would be unwise to soy that we are now heading for a depression: but it is generally believed that business is now on a plateau and the next move will be downward with much unemployment. Importance Of Entertainment Although the superficial factor of the business cycle is debt, yet I ask: What causes the public's changed psychic attitude as to debt? Why do people some years do a lot of buying before any change in wages or prices occurs, while in other years folow a reverse policy without apparent reason? There is some basic spiritual, unseen cause for this changed sttltudc. Here Is where the psychologist* ciaiin that they have the answer; namely, in the moods or desire." of Deople. But again we ask: What changes these moods and dc«ires? It certainly ?cems that *uch chnnges must be due to what people read, hear or see. My feeling is that the newspapers, magazines, radio, movies, theaters, a n d television ( a n d p e r h a p s churches) are the factors which change people's psychic or spiritual mood-; and determine their actions. Yet we find there are times when even if all these factors unite to Influence public opinion, the people refuse to believe them. Hence the material published or broadcast or shown on the screen and stage Is of little URC unless the people are ready to believe what they read, hear and see. It is fairly easy to get publishers, film mnkots, and theater operators to agree on a propaganda policy; but if the public t h i n k ? this is only nropaganda, then it Is of no use. Only when tliese material forces arouse the sniritual forces of the leople are they effective. Opportunities For Many Heal opportunities exist for those vho will make impartial studies of hi? problem for their respective ommunitlcs or Industries. This vlll require months of research n public libraries, studying the dvcrtlsetnents and articles of lewspapers, and magazines, the movies and theatrical reviews, including comments on radio and elevision broadcasts. (The latter of course, have been only reecnt- y a factor.) This material should stud'ed in conlunctton with past Kiness cycles to learn the corrclq- ion between the spiritual and the material. These public libraries invc the answer, and the librarians vill be very glad to aid Chamber? of Commerce and Trade Assocln- ions in such research. One of these Ibrarlans suggests that the style of women's clothing should also be considered!

Today In Washington One In Every Five Employed By Government And Investigated By FBI Has Questionable Background By DAVID LAWRENCE WASHINGTON, Nov. 29-- One out of every five persons actually in the government service who wete investigated by the FBI has a background of questionable circumstances involving either disloyalty or sccuiily. Out of 10.723 government em- ployes investigated under the loyalty program which began on March 21, J947, there were 3,645 who resigned rather than go through the normal procedures of inquiry which would either clear their names or place a label on their records preventing them from getting further employment in the government. The latest data available from the U. S. Civil Service CommlsMon show that 1891 employes left the service for one reason or another during the course of the regular FBI investigation, leaving 14,832 cases to be handed to the loyalty boards ot the various departments for "adjudication." But of these cases. 1,734 pci^ons left the .service after the FBI completed its Investigation but before final "adjudication" of their The total of 3,645 Is about 22 per cent of those investigated by the FBI after being emollcd in -the government. No figures are available as to the number denied employment in the first instance after an FBI inquiry. Unfortunately, there is no way of determining Just what damage these questionable persons have done while in the government .service -whom they influenced and what Information they took awav that could be of value to persons out of sympathy with government action or policies- The whole subject of Communist sympathies, disloyalty and collateral phases is really In its Infancy. The loyalty program has been go- iii_ less than five jours. Undoubtedly chore are innocent persons \vho rules of law do not obtain, and the government today through its loyalty boards can fire anybody about whom there is a reasonable doubt. In other words, the doubt is ipbolveci by these boards in favor of the government rather than the individual, just as any employer can determine who lie shall hire or fire without giving all his reasons. Much of the testimony now being revealed by the Senate Internal Security committee shows that many American* who claim under oath that they have never been Communists did have intimate relationships with Communists or members of their families. A denial under oath by a real Communist oL membership in the party is not unut-ual. Most of the persons actually convicted m the courts of being Communists have previously denied it unaer oath either to the FBI or before grand juries. Coping with disloyal persons who lie is one of the great frustrations, suffered by all those who handle loyalty problems. If the testimony j is taken in executive session so as to avoid use of names, the critics ciy out that it's a "star chamber." I f ' t h e hearings are public, the cry is t h a t the evidence is "hearsay" or slander. Gradually the noose Is being tightened around many of the conspirators because, as the Senate committee members have publicly, stated, there are sound rules of law which permit evidence to be accepted even if it is hearsay provided the hear.say comes from enough persons to establish that a conspiracy exists. This notable exception to the usual rule about hearsay has been emphasised by Senator McCarran and other committee members, and there is little solace for the guilty if more than one witness can be found to corroborate a cliaige of conspiracy based on hearsay tn the first instance.

Charged WASHINGTON, Senators probing Nov. 29 the 1950 f/Pt-- Ohio Senatorial election turn today to an accusation that ar. involuntary campaign contribution was collected by the CIO Political Action committee. A Senate Elections subcommittee scheduled as a witness Beryl Pep- pei'corn of Cleveland, an official of the CIO Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America. They wanted to ask him about a statement by Senator Taft (R-Ohio^ that SI was deducted for the PAC from the salary of a woman Amalgamated member employed in a Lorain, 0.. plant in 1950, without her consent. Taft, the victor over Democrat Joseph T. Ferguson in the 1950 voting, told the subcommittee as its hearing began Monday, that the incident took place, and said forced contributions were illegal. The Senator, who did not give names, said he was told of the deduction in a letter to him from the woman's husband. The CIO-PAC supported Ferguson in the campaign.

The devious ways of those who seek to minimize the disloyalty of thought or a paiticular line ot cases or to cast doubt on Congres- [oveign-policy proposals had led individuals to consort with persons they didn't know were secretly identified in some way with the Communist cause. There is no law against sympathizing with Communist philosophy but there is also no such thing as a right to work for the government. Since this is considered a "privilege" rather than a right, the slonal committee revelations are In themselves a curious study. Some day the hearings of the Senate Internal Security committee--the second volume of its record has just been published--will result in a icport far ditferent from the "whitewash" or superficial inquiry of Communists made by the Tydings committee yast year.

Taft. The Republican Presidential candidate feels that Russia is the great menace to peace and that the United States should carry the big stick in the form of a strong army and navy while walking lightly in Europe lest a big army provoke the Russians to action. Furthermore our economy, he says, could not stand the strain. He feels we should not have become involved in Korea, but since we are, advocates strong action and support of the Chinese Nationalists in Formosa. Taft concedes the fact that the Marshall Plan has aided the Europeans to some degree of self-support but thinks we iiave taken too much on ourselves in placing an American as overall commander. Taft skillfully avoids committing himself too far and leaves the way open for a change of mind as new conditions arise. CLOSING THE RING---Winston S. Churchill. The fifth volume of Churchill's history of the Second World War starts In the summer of 1943 and runs to the evening of June 5, 1944, with the great armada converging on the rendezvous south of the Isle of Wight, poised for the historic landing on June 6. The end of the Mussolini regime is told and the struggle for Salerno, Taranto, Anzio and the Monastery of Cassino. There are intimate portraits of Churchill, his wife and daughter, of. President Roosevelt, his family and friends. The book ends with Chuichill sitting in his chair in the map room of the Annexe hearing the thrilling news of the fall of Rome. The liberation of France had begun All the ships were at sea. The Hitler tyranny was doomed. GODS, GRAVES AND SCHOLARS--C. W. Ceram. Here in their most dramatic form are the great discoveries of the ruins of Troy, of the untouched tomb of Tutankhamen, of the excavations of Pompeii, of Herculaneum. The author shows how archaeologists uncovered the fabled civilizations of the ancient world, and how, step by step, they pushed back the horizons of mankind by 5,000 years. THE GREATEST BOOK EVER WRITTEN--Fulton Oursler. The Holy Bible is still the best-selling book of all time and in all countries, yet surprisingly few of the new generation seem to be familiar with its contents. With this idea in mind Oursler has retold the stories of the Old Testament so that readers might be impelled to read the original Message for themselves. He makes of the stories about Adam and Eve, Abraham, Moses, David and the others human interest stories such as might be included in the Sunday paper or in the popular magazine. There is no ecclesiastical or theological bias. Sunday school feachers may find it useful as supplemental material. OUR FBI -- John J. Floherty. "During the years that I have been Director of the FBI, it has been my constant endeavor to safeguard our young people from contamination by crime and subversive doctrines and to convince them by every means within by power that there is neither glamour nor glory in crime." writes J.
