ii*i£ji^fl^^ c Four HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS f Spanish Families Live in Caves Dug in the Many Hills (Editor's Note — When De• Witt MacKenzie and his wife began their present world tour they promised to report to their own children, who remain in school in the United States,, on the children of other lands and how they have been affected by war. This is such a report from Madrid.) By DeWITT MacKENZIE AH World Traveler Madrid. Jan 1C — Dear Carol and Major: This is to report another of the strange and often heart-stirring things which we are encountering o nour world tour". In the suburbs of this beautiful old cjty, with its boulevards and grand palaces, hundreds of-families are living i» direst poverty in caves dug into the many hills- of compact sand. Vueir .fate is indeed sad. Now " before going further we should warn you that you can't tlraw sweeping conclusions irom ('•'s extraordinary situation. These cave dwellers don't represent general, conditions in Madird. nor yet in Spain. They are folk who are the victims of the tragedy which follows on the trail of wars and plays its evil tricks on the hapless ones who can't escape. To understand. this you must know that during the awful civil war .of 1936-39 scores of thousands fled to Madrid from the provinces and created a great housing problem, with which the city is still .struggling. There were more peo- ~"J5le" th'arT'flVfere" were homes for 1 •tHenT; -Then "came the world war which-made -building .operations difficult because,:of lack of material,, .and. so we find the underprivileged digging homes in the sand ;hills. -•.. ,-. •Most of-the-caves are very small —just*-big" enough for the family to J "httSdle "together to escape cold winds,;and to spread their tattered blanjcgit!'..Von the ground for sleep. v£beyj.db their i cooking over little fires built in the months of the cave s or outdoors.

Yes, there were many babies and small children, for lite moves on in the caves as it does in the homes of the gentry. The setting is different, bi.it childbirth and death know no restrictions. So babies are born in the sand hills, and perhaps they are lucky when they die bclore they have had long to suffer. The death rate in the cave colonies is heavy. There's must disease due to malnutrition, and at best most of the faces show the pinch of hunger.

She .was a •'seller of purple", which • can mean either an expensive dye or dyed goods. Her home was, in Tiiyatira, lr.il r,t her conversion we find her in Philippi, presumably transacting business. Lydi.i and her companions were IMP first converts, of which we have Bible record, in Europe. There are several admirable traits in Lydia. Though a business woman, and likely very <jusy. yet slip had time to worship God. Too many professional ;'.i2!.ip!o become so absorbed in bii.unt.ii; duties that they have no ti::ie for God. Lydia was jinecro. She worshipped God, but wrongly, as Judaism had Icng since boon aboliahcd. Many today often state that if shown by ihe Bible that they are wrong in their religion they wouldn't chai'ije. They are not as hopes',: p.:id r.incere as Lydia. IJpon hearing the truth, Lydia \viihoul hesitation accepted it. and "she attended unto' the things which were spoUon of Paul.".' In Lydia's conversion it is not specifically slated that she believed in Christ arid repented of her sins, thoush these are necessarily .interred by her renouncing error and accepting tho Ivuth. These are also prerequisites to baptism, and we have reason to believe that Paul would not have bcptb.cd her without evidence of these in her life. Upon accepting Paul's preaching, "she was baptixed, ai-.ri her household." Thuy" asain >!_ i;: Kuggesti-u that Ihe New Itestament jvroe'jdure in conversion v;as faith, repentance and baptism. This is uniformly true in every case of gospel conversion in the New Testament. Somo often contend that since Lydia's "household" was baptized, that this o'Klornos infant baptism. Put T>,;'.yor. t!ie Greek lexicographer, says the Greek word "housfliold" (oikosi is commonly used to mean "Ihe inmates of a house." or used to embrace servant:;. Even Webster define:-, the word as "those who dwell us a family under one roof." If this justifies infant baptism. the;i wo must assume :cvcra] things that the Bible does not say: (!) That Lydia \vas married; (2) that she had children; 13) that her children wr-re infants; and (•!> thai tiie.se infants \vero baptized. The term as used Jiere evidently means that .Lydia' and her business associates, or servants, were converted. Waymon D.

We, the Women By RUTH MILLETT NEA Staff Writer It should turn out to be a masterly political move—the governoi of Ohio offering rooms in ihe governor's mansion to a former Ai pilot and his wife. A large percentage of the voting public has had enough experience in the weary business of housi hunting to appreciate the story Only one thing could have made the yarn better—and that woult have been for the couple selectee as roomers to have had a baby Now if the governor's gestun would only prompt the leadin; citizens of every community make the same offer in behalf o the local housing situation, th problem of finding living quar lers for veterans and their fain ilies would be well on the wa to being solved temporarily. For if the families who live i the big houses and set the soci; pace in their communities woul find a room or rooms for a veteran and his wife—other families would feel they could afford to do the same thing without jeopardizing their social standing. BREAKING THE ICE To popularize the idea should not be loo hard. Put pictures of leading citizens with their veteran roomers on the society pages ol local papers, and you'll find women as patriotic about renting rooms as they were about rolling bandages. The governor of Ohio has broken the ice, and now anyone ought to feel free to offer rooms to veterans. From now on taking in roomers should be socially acceptable.

In the past, women were expected 1o lo.ie a tooth willi cacn child, but (his was Uirgjly the ri'suii M" neglect ol I'M teeth and gums during pregnancy. Special instructions in hygiene include a discussion of diet, clothing, sleep, rest, and exerciss. Diet of the pregnant woman should be such that the total weight gain does not exceed 25 to ISO pounds, and she should eat an adequate supply of protein, vitamins and minerals. Kats and sugar should be restricted if there is a tendency to excessive weight gain. EXERCISE BENEFICIAL Moderate exercise is beneficial and as women should do their own work they can be gainfully employed under certain conditions. Most physicians do not recommend extensive trips by pregnant women. Toxemia. a special disease which develops during pregnancy, can be anticipated and controlled by regular observations of blood pressure, examination of the urine, and studies of weight in crease.

Three years ago, just iis my husband was leaving for overseas, he said to me: "When 1 return I don't want you to be just as you arc now. 1 want you to be sophisticated." When I asked just what he meant by sophistication, he said he didn't want me to show my feelings. Now he is coining home and, as I strive to please, I would like to know what 1 have to do to become sophisticated'.' We are both in our late twenties and have a family. I am nice- looking, dress well and with taste, am well-educated, don't argue, am a cheerful, happy-go-lucky person, am not a wallflower when we step out, but it seems I won't do. I've got to be sophisticated. And how! T. M. DEPENDS ON VIEWS ANSWER: Heaven help you,lady. I can't, -because sophistication means such different things to different people that there is no authority for what it really connotes. Many people believe that sophistication means being cynical. They think that a sophisticated person is one who doesn't believe in God, or religion, or honor, or honesty, or any of the noble qualities of human nature. They do not elieve that any woman is virtu-' us, or any man faithful to his Q—What nation publishes the greatest number of books and periodicals per capita? A—Iceland. Broadway vife, or that anyone ever does ind act except to make a gesture, 'hey call this being sophisticated nd worldly wise. But there are other people who hink that only those are sophis- icated who have seen so much j jf life and who have known that vhal couldn't happen does happen ill the time, that they have grown wise and tolerant, with an infinite jelief in the power that runs the vorld and an infinite compassion 'or all poor, blundering human- ty. The very young believe that soph- stication consists in breaking all he laws of God and man. They ,hink it is sophisticated to get drunk, to be immoral, to get money without working for it. to do all the things that will make .hem broken down old roues before their lime. Which one of these theories of sophistication your husband wishes you to adopt, 1 don't Know, but my guess i;-. thai, it will not be the one about, not showing your feelings so lar as he i; concerned. He will nol waul you to change from the warmhearted, loving woman .iou an; now into a supercilious mairicd woman who has affairs with olhi.T men. Super cilipus- IKISS is not one ol (he qualities that are good lor home concump- lion. Bui. above all. lei me urge; you not lo try lo change your personality. II. never .works. None of us look our best ill oilier people's clothes.

James M. Mead of New York. GKT your wife's conduct, it will be useless for YOU to try lo live together. It will serve no good piupose, lor you cannot make a home in which a child should bo reared. Il will be beiter for your child to have one parent than two who are always quarreling and fighting and wiii) hate 'each other, and better for the child to have no home at all UKMI one that is a place of .strife. Perhaps if your wife loves you in spile of her disloyally, and if she repents her conduct, she will go straight, in the future, and you may yel make ;i happy life together. Many wives forgive erring husbands. Why should not a man be big enough and undersUindinp, enough to foy;Uvr a woman for .stumbling off of the straighl and narrow palh?

Practically every person in tin: country had some part in thi worthwhile program. I am proud of the fact that you had the heart and vision to donate your dimes and dollars. More research is needed in this field and part of the money you give will be set aside for this purpose. As we have no way of knowing just when or where this disease will occur, we need to always be prepared. This tremendous job oi preparation is only possible through your generous contribution. So to you who have given so much and will, 1 arn sure, give again during this allolod' lime, let me express my deepest appreciation. Thousands who are suffering from poliomyelitis have found new hope through your generosity. I hope that each one of you will take an active part in this 1946 appeal for funds and make it a huge success, thus relieving those who are suffering from this condition. Funds will mean hospitali- zaiton, medical atlenlion and effec live treatment which means "back to health" for those stricken with this dreaded disease.
