The plight of the people in gypt after Joseph's death is set xiforc us with a vividness that make:; the blood run cold, though he oppression and suffering was if long ago. But from the dark cone arises a great and courageous leader, devoted lo his people ind their deliverance. The babe cast upon the waters jy his mother, in the little basket jf bulrushes, rescued and adopted jy Pharaoh's daughter, had grown .o manhood. The palace offered lim security, luxury, wealth and jowor. No doubt it offered him, too, the affection of the kindly princess, his foster mother. But ic was a Jew at heart, lie saw the suffering of his people. He \ncw that he belonged to them and not lo the palace. As Ihc write of Hebrews puts it (Hebrews 11:24), "By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter; choosing rather lo suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season." The writer adds much to thai simple statement, but his words arc striking. It would have been sin, he suggests, if Moses had taken the case and personal preferment that the palace offered, instead of cham pioning the cause of his people. Moses was a groat liberator and deliverer; and every one of us today has a chance lo follow in his footslcps.

HIGHTOWER London, Jan. 12 — (/P) —The United Nations General Assembly filled five of the six non-permanent places on the vital security council today after Russian efforts lo postpone the voting were defeated in a sharp floor dispute with the United Stales and Britain. Auslrailia and Canada were involved in a run-oft for the sixth place. Two ballots failed to give either nation the necessary two- thirds votes for election. The assembly planned to take n third vote when it resumes its .Afternoon session at 3 p. in. (10 a. m. Eastern Standard Time). The five countries elected on the first ballot were Brazil (47 votes), Egypt (4fi), Poland (30) and the Netherlands (37). The five elected stales and Canada were on a slate which had been circulated by the United Slates delegation. A Russian motion to delay formation of the security council, which eventually will control the proposed world police force was opposed on the floor by U. S. Secretary of Stale James F. Byrnes and British Foreign Secretary Ernest Bcvin who said the Soviet proposal would set a bad precedent. Russia had been reported critical of the candidacies of Mexico and The War Between China and Japan is Over, but Chinese Still Like to Fight Japs Ihe Nelhcrlands. First il was reported lhat the bcr 15, 1945. 'Of this number," said Col. Lyons, "604 were original enlist mcnts, 4B41 were cnlislmonts from the AUS, and 103 were re-cnlisl- ments. This is, indeed, a record of which to be proud and no belter proof than these enlistments can be offered as to how men feel about making a future career peace-lime Army.' Ihc It is interesting to nole," continued Col. Lyons, "lhat although men have the opportunity to cnlisl 'l'or a period as short as 18 months 80 per cent of the men enlisted foi the three year period because of the privilege of selecting the branch of service and Ihe thcatci in which they want to serve."

The steel breakdown carne with staggering suddenness on the heels of General Motors rejection of fact- finding recommendations for ending the auto strike. Presidential advisers w e r e- agreed, however, that steel was the key-log in the whole strike jam. Gravely aware that virtual re- conversion paralysis could follow a protraclcd stoppage of Ihe nation's steel mills, Mr. Truman arranged Ihe While House conference for 2 p. m. There were indications the president might not sit in on the talks at first. It appeared more likely that the House Murray and Fairless would discuss the wage controversy — and the all-important role played by steel prices — with Snyder, Secrelary of Labor Schwellenbach, .and John R. Steelman, special presidential assistant and labor expert. However, Mr.. Truman would 'be available and could join the discussions later if they reached a point warranting his presence. Following the conclusion'-of'ne- gotiations in New York last night, Murray said the stcelworkers had cut their demand for a $2 a day wage increase to 20 cents an hour —or $1.60 a day. Fairless said the corporation had offered 15 cents an hour but that Murray had declined to go below 19 1-2 cents. Government experts in these matters thought Ihe Iwo parties were not far apart on that issue, and thai the principals perhaps believed price concessions from a last-minute White House conference might still head off a strike.
