The purguit ol security, he says, is piling up money in savings hanks and hampering insurance companies' chances and choices of investment. Perhaps this a a good illustration of the contrast between the boom and bust of the Twenties and the boom and bu»t which some economists say still threaten us today.

Soviet Switch Gives Cause for Speculation Side by Side The theme of unity which Governor Dewey preached during the 1948 campaign seems destined to hiiunt him. Now Mr, Dewey, like his successful rival, Mr. Truman, is having plenty of trouble with a balky legislature controlled by his own party. Thus we see tne victor and the vanquished trudging side by side^down the thorny bipartisan inith of partisan difficulties. The Soviet foreign ministry is no more autonomous than the United States State Department, perhaps less so. The big difference between the two is that State Department policy reflect* the decision of the majority of the p«opl«. Thus much uf its operation is in the open. The Russian foreign ministry has no responsibility to the public. It takes its orders from the 13 men who form the Soviet Politburo. So long as that: closed corporation retains its present membership and leadership, the new foreign ministry lineup may not be too important in the end. But since the Politburo is as secret as it is unpredictable, the replacement of Mr. Molotov and the promotion of Messrs. Vishinsky and Gromyko has given the political experts an interesting new puzzle to work on. Some of the experts probably were more surprised at Mr. Viahinsky's elevation than at Mr. Molotov'a departure. They'had speculated that the new foreign minister's recent illness was diplomatic rather than physical, There was reasonable ground for such speculation. Mr. Vishinsky succeeded in making a great many of the non-Communist representatives hopping mad at the Paris meeting of the UN General A«- sembly. Under his leadership there, Rustia gave no ground and mad^ no concessions. But it seemed evident that a number of delegations not only lost their patience with Mr Vishinsky and his tirades but also their sympathy with the cause that he was pleading. So a diplomatic indisposition and political oblivion wou(d not have been surprising. Instead Mr. Vishinsky is now for- tign minister and Mr, Gromyko is hi? deputy. Whatever reasons the Politburo had for appointing them, it has nl«ct«d two. past masters rf unpleasantness. Mr. Vishinsky's specialty is the hysterical, apopletic insult. Air. Gromyko i* b*»t remembered for the cold contempt with which he utters nis few wordi—most of them "no." Hot or cold, tne difference is not great, for these men will simply be delivering orders from the Kremlin. But the Politburo r.ould scarcely have picked two diplomatic representatives who are leaf likely to improve international relation! on a fac«-to-ftce basis. If there is any dissatisfaction behind the foreign ministry changes, it must be with some of the decisions that the Politburo itfflf h.M made. Iti af. grftscive tactics have solidified the leng- talked-of idea of • western European union into action. Action it proceeding along both military and economic linei, and that can scarcely be good news to an Ambitious power whoae beat bet certainly would be to divide and cwsquer. The Soviet leader* may have some further unpleaMtt •urpriie* ifi itore. They Never Left Home The non-stop, round-the-world flight of Lady Luck II was a great and impressive feat, but we don't envy the men who performed it. The crew got aboard in Fort Worth on a Saturday, soared high above the earth, cuuie down on a Wednesday, and stepped out of the plane- still in Fort Worth. All of which seems to make the old recruiting slogan more timely than ever: Join the Navy and see the world. ' VIEWS OF OTHERS Television in Automobiles'* "What motorist," a. New York State Senator ' uiti, "U going to be able to watch for red lights and scurrying pedestrians when before him on a television set he can see the prancing of the Rocketlcs, the slashing dilvcs of Joe DiMaggio or the antics of Milton Berle?" He anticipates nevertheless, the some people will want automobile TV and that manufacturers will give It to them. Therefore, he has Introduced a bill to outlaw television in private vehicles. A TV screen does not ataclc up as a good dashboard accessory. A man driving needs th full attention of both his eyes; sometimes tie would be better off with three or four eyes. It aeems a pity that the common sense of dftvera cannot dispose of the matter, bul there are always some people In whom common sense runs weak, Behind a steering weel tney can kill others as readily as themselves, so lawp to forestall tin me)iact are in order. —ST. LOUIS POST DISPATCH. Energy, Determination of Jews Foundation for Young Israel Sunday School Lesson By William E. Gilroy, D. D. Jesus was a great Teacher, though He conducted no school In the ordinary sense of that word. A famous adage described the Idea) college as a log with Mark Hopkins, eminent college president, at one end and a student at the other. That conception would be very inadequate In our day of great scientific laboratories and observatories, equipped with expensive equipment. But It stressed a niioes- sary quality of all true education no matter on what a scale, or hou complicated it becomes. That is (he act that knowledge must become personalized. The school of Jesus had that jaslc quality. It was mostly a schoo n the out-of-doors, a school o: companionship and personal con acts, a school In which the Teacher taught by constant example and n which lie encouraged every success in emulating that example. It was a school, too. in which the Teacher had infinite patience, as every true teacher must have. But it was a school of strict dis- By DeWill MacKenile (,Vj Fort in n Affairs Analyst Alter the signing of the armlstl between warring Egypt and Isra on February 24, this column r narked of the new Jewish sta' \ hal we likely were witnessing tl beginning of another Imperial) power. This has brought from a studei! of International affairs In the sta of Washington the request for amplification. He wants to knc "why"—and that's a fair questio' What I said previously was Ihl' "And wnat of the future for Hi | new Israel? Predictions are dai gerous but this column Is going make one, As I rend the sign) I Israel is heading for a domlnai position in the affairs of the stra'j eglc Middle East. We likely are w! ncssing the beginning of anoth'j Important power." What is the basis for such idea? Well, In the first place tl ( | Jewish" race Is endowed with a extraordinary amount of determii ation. That determination is direc cd towards a spiritual goal: tl creation—or better, the re-creatk —of the home-land for which tl Jewish people have yearned the:':j 2,000 years. I've been watching this crusacj at close range ever since the Ba;J Vermont Congressman Gives House Members One-Minute Talk and Sage Cheese Sample By Pc(«r Edson S'EA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON, (NEA)—Charles Albert Phimley, Vermont's only congressman, the other day treated leinbers of Ihe House to a sample f what he called "old Vermont age cheese." It turned out to be dlble as well as oratorical cheese. In making a one-minute speech on the subject, the congressman aid: "I am sure that the members do not know anything more about what I am talking about than the ellow who went up to the bar anil asked one standing up'theve if he isd ever had delirium trcmens. The fellow addressed said 'Nol' Then the first man said. Then you have rtev- er been anywhere, you ain't nevec seen nothing, and you don't know nothing."* Congressmen who sampled the old Vermont sage cheese found It considerably softer than Vermont marble, sbmewhat harder than Vermont miple syrup, but with a touch of the Qreen Mountains in It. It wns Ilk* Swiss cheese, only veined with the green sage, leaves that gave It distinctive flavor. But none who tried It reported that it gave them delirium tremens or even bad dreams, as plumley's speech had halfway promised. China Aid Report Confused Reports thai. U. S. Economic Cooperation Administration would continue sending full Marshall Plan aid to China were slightly balled up. What happened was that in "Senate Foreign Relations committee hear- would cost to continue aid to-Chl- la at the present rate. l*pham consulted his Rides, and they came up with a figure of $20.000.000 a month. Somebody multiplied that by 12 and cabled back to China the new that ECA had given a definite assurance that $240,000.000 in U. S. aid would be sent to Nationalist China next year. The fact Is that no determination has been made on vhetlier to .send any aid to China, beyond June 30. ECA Administrator Hoffman wants to get the European recovery program straightened out first. He will present his estiiontes for China. Korea, Greece and Turkey when House Appropriation Committee hearings begin. • • • One of the main reasons for Communist persecution of religious leaders in Hungary has been to gain control of the school system. In the past, about two-thirds of Hungary's schools, Including colleges, have been run by Roman Catholic, Lutheran, Reformed and Jewish churches, As long as churches controlled SO THEY SAY the schools, the Communist government hnd no way to bring up the young folks on Marxist lines. The pqueoze was first applied by confiscating church lands, the Income from which supported schools. The Communist government then tried to operate the schools, but didn't have enough teachers.

S. Marshall Finn mission i Greece has been in trying to get the Greek government to set its financial affairs in order. That has meant put- ing in a tax system that worked, so the Greek government could pay its oivn way. This effort has met with considerable resistance from Greeks with money enough to pay Ihe Recently nearly all the stores in Athens closed down for a day. The proprietors were on strike apainst having to keep books for ax record purposes. * • As an indication of what horrible liars they have become the Moscow- radio recently broadcast in English to North America that the U. S.- British nlrlift had taken out of Berlin 800.000 tons of dismantlec industrial equipment and 23,156.500 tons of important goods such as cipline and high standards as well. Poor pupils, even in a good school may be content Just to pass or "get by," but Jesus had called His disciples for high purposes. They needed training. The late Dr. A. B. Bruce, an eminent Scottish churchman, wrote a book on what he called "The Training of the Twelve." What was the teaching and training that the Twelve received from Jesus? I have said that It was tcach_ Ing and training by example. Jesus said, first of all, "Follow me." He said "Go." only when He had shown the way. The school of Jesus was like some of the schools of today In which knowledge and guidance are combined with experience and practice. Jesus sent the disciples in His school out into the villages, two by two, to practice what they had learned, and to proclaim what they had heard. When one considers how. even toward the end of His ministry, .some' of the Twelve were quarreling, one wonders just what the missionaries of the new found Messiah taught the villagers. But they at least had some success, for they returned to Jesus' with enthusiasm and wonderment at what they had been able to achieve. That, also, was a principle In the school of Christ, reviewing what d been done, "checking up." One i see how really fine and cfli- nt were the ways and methods In at unconventional school of the aster, conducted as He went about ing good. A good school is judged by Its re- Its and its product.
