Some of the Jewish feasts, like the Feast of Tabernacles; were occasions of great festivity. But the primary thought and observance In the Jewish feast was that of holiness, of emphasizing consecrated memories, and of deepening in the people the religious sense of God's presence and God's guidance. Whether in joyous celebration, in the reverential devotion as in the Feast of the Passover, or in somber reflection as on the Day of Atonement, sacredness was of the very essence of the establishment and observance of the Jewish feasts. The religious connection is still suggested in our word "holiday," which has come to have little, if any, association with holiness. But holidays were formerly holy days, when the life of the people, both among the Jews and in Christian communities, centered more completely around temple, synagogue or church.

In the first place. Sen. Chavez (D-N. M.i could hardly have surprised most of his colleagues more if he had given them the hot-tool with a real pinwheel when he moved to bring up his FEPC bill for immediate consideration. The Senate was working along quietly enough, discussing purely for the record such things as taxes, price controls and labor disputes. Young Sen. Francis J. In the House Rep. J. Parnell Thomas (R-N.

It wasn't exactly a photo-finish, but both Sens .Murray of Montana and O'Daniel of Texas were trying to get the attention of the chair when Sen. Myers tossed the ball to Sen. Chavez and gave him the floor. He immediately moved consideration of the bill which would establish a permanent commission to prevent discrimination by employers giving work or labor unions gr?>iting memberships to any persons for reasons of race, creed or color. Minority leader White asked incredulously: "Do I understand correctly lhal Ihe senator moves thai the bill be now considered by Ihe Senate?" Majority whip Hill, whose business it is lo be informed of thc time of presenlation of all important legislation, said: "I have nol discussed the matter with thc senator (Chavez), but I understood he would perhaps address himself to thc subject today but would not make the motion today. Am I in error in that understanding?" Sen. Chavez informed him he was in error and added drily: "I have made the motion." It was then that Sen. "Bob" LaFollette, Wisconsin Progressive, who learned parliamentary tactics at his father's knee, threw in the first sizzler. Rising on a point of order, he made thc point "that the motion having been made prior to 2 o'clock and after the conclusion of the morning business, it is not debatable." I doubt if there were many who would have thoughl of lhal one. The effect was, without further ado, to force a vote on immediate consideration of the bill. Thc vote was taken and won hands down, 49 to 17. No senator whose stale is for the bill would risk the wrath of his constituents by voting against consideration, even if he felt that the time wasn't right to set off a long-winded debate and almost certain filibuster, over the bill which is so hotly contested by southern senators. After reading of the bill, it was Sen. Ball, Minnesota Republican, who put a match to the nexl one. When Sen. Eastland (D-Miss), arch foe of FEPC, got a word in edgewise, he moved that the bill be re' committed (for further consideration and consequently delays) to the Commiltee on Education and Labor. Sen. Ball invoked an infrequently used and debatable point of order that Sen. Chavez had not yielded the floor for that purpose. Sen. George (D-Ga.1 said that when a senator yielded, he yielded for any legitimate legislative purpose. Sen. Eastland, however, put an end to that by withdrawing his motion.

Life in our times has become more secular. Masses of people no longer live close to nature. They take crops and harvest for granted, until clruoth and failure, or the diversion of millions of crop-raisers into warriors, brings the threat of privalion and starvation, ;is it has brought to millions in our own lime. But those whose dependence has been more directly upon thc seasons, and upon the fruits of tillage, have responded emotionally and religiously to this dependence. Festivals of the seasons have been in pagan, as in the Jewish and Christian, religious. But what marks the Jewish and Christian "feasts" is their holy associationi. Notable among the Jewish feast was the Feast of the Passover celebrating the passing over of Jewish homes, when dcslruclion fell upon Egyplian families. Associated with it was the Feast of Unleavened Bread. Others were the Feast of Pentecost, celebrating the completion of the corn harvest, and Ihe Feasl of Tabernacles, the Jevyish harvest home, when fruit, oil, and wine had been gathered in. This was a feast of i great joy. when for seven days 1 the people lived in gooths, improvised out of "boughs of goodly trees, branches of palm trees, and the boughs of thick trees, and willows of the brook." Thc people were to "rejoice before the Lord seven days." What a picture of a nalion relaxed Thc days of lhal feasl were surely bolh holy days and holidays. It would be a boon to speed! ed-up Americans if we, too. had a feast of tabernacles, in which we 1 could all share, and all get back : lo nature, but il doesn't always bring them near to nature's God. I We have our feasts and festi- ! vtils, too — Christmas, Easier, '' Thanksgiving and Ihe days whiyi j we celebrate great national events, i often with more noise than holi- i ness. But these ought to be holy days, with devotion to our coun- I try, as well as devotion to pleasure. It's ew.. Afloat * You Have Seen The Others .......

Colton is a human staple only in its finished form, cloth and clothing— and these have been price-governed from the beginning. But the situation as to raw cot- Ion is wholly different. In this connection Senator .1. W. Fuibright has just issued a press .statement from Washington giving hope that the proposal to set up ,,> raw-cotton ceilings will be defeated. Says the statement: "Senator J. W. Fuibright of Arkansas said this week that he doubted that OPA would attempt lo establish a ceiling price on raw cotton tills year. In spite of his general approval of most of the controls curbing disastrous inflation, Senator Fulbrighl said thai ho would vigorously oppose Ihe proposed ceiling price on raw cotton. " 'The government, through its ^ tremendous surpluses of cotton, al™ ready possesses the necessary means of keeping the price from gelling out of hand,' the Senator pointed out. 'Furthermore, Ihc cost o fraw cotton has little affect on tiie price of Ihc finished textile products.' "Senator Fulbrighl said also that he believed that pricing of cot- Ion is so complex that a controlled program would be virtually impossible lo administer." * * * By JAMES THRASHER j Occupation and Education The Now York Times, in a dispatch from Germany, ((notes shutdowns of related industries idle additional 55,000; CIO President Wife Toils Up Prison Hill to Bring Food to Bennett -Only to Learn He Is Dead (This is the last of a scries of columns on Chester Bennett, American hero of Hong Kong.)

Death Cut ,Short Hopkins Autobiography New York, Feb. 2 — (UP) — Harry Hopkins died in thc niidsl of work on his memoirs, it was learned today, and his fully documented story of his war years with Franklin D.

Harper Bros., publishers, said loday lhal Hopkins had beo 11 working with two research assistants since last summer and that a quantity of anecdote and his own personal recollection had been recorded, in longhand and through dicta' lion, before his death this week. Hopkins had planned to compile the material and write the bok himself, the publishers said, but the work is believed sufficiently advanced lo be completed by an editor. The story is said to be confined to Ihe years following thc beginning of the war in Europe —years in which Hopkins acted as confidant and personal representative of the laic president, sharing with him the confidence of war leaders of all nations.

GREEN Washington, Feb. 2 — (/P)—Speedy White House action lo end the steel strike was termed "imperative" today, as President Truman called .he OPA Chief Chester Bowles on Lhe price issues involved in the crippling dispute. The high government official who said action now had become imperative predicted it might be fort coming this weekend, since "big steel showed no signs of joining thc current parade of companies setlling their reconversion wage disputes. Another strong hint of government expectations came last night from Nathan P. Feinsingcr, chairman of Mr. Truman's steel fact- finding board. Thc three panel members were called lo Ihe While House yesterday afternoon a n d gave a half-hour oral report. Asked whether thc president was consulting them in preparation for a new effort at settlement, Feinsinger said he gathered that Mr. Truman has "some expectation of .something happening in thc near future" — but Mr. Truman did nol lejl Ihe board whal he had in mind. Feinsingcr said he was sure-, however, that "the president, is still thinking in terms of settlement," pointed out that Andrei..Vish-. i'nsky,, Soviet vice commissar of foreign affairs, did nol mention the slralegic and economic importance of Greeqc-;t l 6*tlie.-British empire — or to 'Russia: '' ' Despite the warmth of yesterday's debate- sornc-'delegates', 'saw the frank dlstussion as a' ; "good omen" for future peace. "We're, succeeding 1 , .-where . the T-»auuo" .of 'Nations . failed;" Dr. Hartvig Frisch, veteran Danish statesman arid a leading Scandinavian delegate, told a reporter. "The exhibition yesterday 'afternoon was true international collaboration. It proved that distrust could be aired in frankness. II is a new era. His comments summarized those made by many other delegates after listening to Bcvin counter Russian charges by asserting that the "real danger" lo peace lay in whal he termed Soviet anti-British propaganda and by demanding ;\ yes- or-no verdict by the council as to whether Britian was jeopardizing the peace." "It's a good omen for thc future for nations to be able to bring their problems out and discus them openly and frankly," Dr. Luis Padilla Nervo, Mexican member of the security council, said dier, however good a soldier he maybe:'" The Legion's blast against Brad \cy rallied to his defense tte'.na tional representatives''^ 1 ,;-Veteran; of Foreign'Wars, Military-' Or'dc: of the Purple Heart, Disablec Opponents of new labor legislation said they would fight any attempt to weaken the Case bill. They ased their strategy on the hope lat the bill would be so strong hat it cither would be unaccept- ble to the Senate or would draw veto if passed. The Case bill was introduced as i substitute for the House Labor Committee's watered-down version if the fact-finding bill. It would nake labor unions liable for con- ract violations and would ban fore- nan's unions, picketing violence and union boycots. It also would provide a 30-day no-strike cooling off period. The margin of 258 to 114 by .vhich the House agreed to take up he Case bill convinced even die- lard union supporters that the House would pass some type of strike legislation. The House will act on the bill Tuesday. Moves to amend or substitute a less severe measure will be considered Monday. Rep. Brooks Hayes, D,. Ark., who supported the Case bill in its test vote Thursday, proposed the latest substitute. He said he would offer a measure which would be a modified version of the Burton- Ball-Hatch bill now pending in the Senate. , The Hayes bill would set up a permanent federal labor relations board in the Department of Labor. This board would have the right to compel labor and management in •bas.anustie '-''- Pearl Harbor. Members of Congress' Pearl Harbor committee had "many things" they want, to ask Safford about the story he told yesterday Safford was chief of the Navy Department's communications (security section, dealing with intercepted Japanese messages, at t~~" t!'-"' the attack Dec 7, 1941. He now is assistant director of naval communications for cryptographic research. Safford told the committee: 1 ."There was a winds message. It meant war—and we knew it meant war." 2. The winds message was intercepted by the navy at 8:30 a. m. (Washington time) Dec. 4, 1941, and distributed to the army and navy high command and the White louse by noon that day. 3." "The War and Navy Departments had been given 72 hours advance notification of the attack on England and the United States by Jie Japanese themselves." Sen. Scot W. Lucas, D., 111., pointed out that Safford, the only witness to date to assert'the winds code was used prior to the attack, gave a different date for its interception when he testified before Adm. now Sen.)

President Truman- brought him back from active duty in Europe and put him in charge last August. They called for a full op- oortunity for him to put his plans nlo operation. Bradley, in replying to Stelle's probe demand, cited the "tremendous" increase in thc VA's load since he took over, and added: "Frankly 1 think we have made as much progress with that job as we could.' ' He also disclosed at a press conference yesterday that he had had a "scrap" with Stelle prior to the Legion's demand for a probe of his job 'as veterans administrator. The "scrap" occurred last week, he said, and it was over the location of a hospital in Stello's home state of Illinois. He said Slelle wanted it located on one side of town in Decatur, but the VA finally decided that the site should be on the other side of town. Bradley added he did not think this incident had "much to do with this attack." in his extended commentary on charges contained in the Legion in- vesligalion demand, Bradley acknowledged lhal VA hospital construction had not kept pace witft demands. He pointed out, however, there had been no new construction in war time and that funds for new facilities became available mostly in the last cighl months. He contended that disability claims were being handled without delay, that most readjustment allowances were paid within two weeks, and that thc financial department was up to date in acting on loan applications for the purchases of farms, homes and businesses. In some eases, he conceded, Va was from 10 to 30 days behind in its work, but he said when he took over la.si August there were ti.CSS,- 000 veterans to consider, now there arc 13,490.000 and it is estimated the number will reach 20,- sion period .only. • . .Two other substitute bills also lave been proposed. They were: 1. A bill by Rep. Everett M. Dirksen, R., 111., to set up "boards* of inquiry" and strengthen the mediation and conciliation service in Lhe Labor Department. The boards would be patterned after Mr. Truman's fact-finding panels but could not subpoena company records or enforce "coling off" periods. 2. A measure by Rep. Jerry Voorhis, p., Calif., to set up a new mediation and conciliation service in the Labor Department to resolve labor difficulties of industries engaged in interslale commerce. If tnis failed, the president could set up fact-finding boards with power to subpoena company gpoks and enforce "cooling-off" periods. The Labor Committee's version of Ihp administration bill would permit the president lo set up fact-finding boards in serious labor disputes, It would not, however, grant Mr. Truman's requests that these boards be given subpoena powers or that strikes be banned for 30-days. ' ; Rep .Gerald Landis, R., Ind., who sponsored the watered-down bill in an effort to get something before the House .indicated that the Case bill was'too drastic for him. He said he intended to offer amendments which would limit the ban on foremen's unions and would eliminate provisions giving the courts broad powers of injunction over labor picketing, boycotts and violence. "Unless the House goes along with me on this," he said, "I won't vote for this Case bill." ^SV'-r^Vt.-JTC *C?r ^r?-"i7».

Bootleg Tax Issue Doesn't Affect 'Dry' Mississippi Jackson, Miss. Feb. 2—(/!';— While thc fate of Mississippi's black market tax on liquor still is in thc hands of the legislature, the attorney general has ruled that legality of thc tax in no way weakens stale prohibition. Rep. T. E. Stephens of Lauderdale county asked Attorney General Greek L. Rice whether thc tax legalized sale of intoxicating liquor or relieved peace officers, prosecutors, judges or juries of any obligation to proceed against liquor law violators. Thc atorney general answered. The law in regard to intoxicating liquors is now in all respects just like it was before this law (black market lax) was passed." A bill to repeal the tax failed to pass in the Senate, but will be voted on Thursday again under a motion to reconsider. Another repeal bill is before the Houso Ways and Means committee.
