One of the most important aspects of modern civilization is the tremendous increase hi man's rmtstery over n a t u r e and In his power to direct ehfinfre in the way he wants il to {TO. If w« want change to be for the better, w« know l h a t we can and should direct it for the better. Why then is Ihe world today in Btic.h a m*ss? · Much has been said lo point, out. the need, not only, for knowledge and technique)?, but aluo for.right vulues and gonrl purposes. My subject now however IB. more specffit-nil)', the nerd for concern. The people who c o n t r i b u t e , to Ihe. wellbcing of society are the. people who cure. In most, things we arc motivated largely hy self- interest. The jobs that tend lo be left tin- clone--and these are o f t e n the ones that, most need to he done--n re those whose benefit to ourselves is less direct and obvious. They wait for men who are moved by · feeling of concern for (lie goorl of others. Take for example the closely related problem* of. maintaining good schools mid ·itabllshinjr fair and equitable taxation in Arkansas. Where progress has been made In solving these problems, us It. h»s recently in Fayettevlllc, there has had to be genuine and enlightened concern about the educational opportunities of our children and young people. It is not enough to recognize the injustice and harm resulting from certain long-established living conditions In slums r6th urban and rural, the very low wages received by of unorganized office and factory"workora ( t h e waste and corruption in government, and t h e infringements upon the rights and opportunities of minority groups. Rut unless we feel A sense of shame and disgrace for tries* things and a passion for their correction, it is easy to 'find plenty of excuses for doing nothing about t h e m . - A f ter all, there is no denying t h a t these are extremely difficult problems mid that the best methods of dealing wilh t h e m are flot always clear. Rut there is also no denying lhat progress, is possible when educated, resourceful citizens not only itnow the facts but are moved by genuine concern. C h r i s t i a n i t y is a religion of concern, Its central message is t h a t God was so concerned about mankind t h n l he came t'o men in the person of Jesus Christ to so confront them w i l l ) bin love ns to win them at last imlo himself. The Christian Church is the fellowship of those who believe in Christ, those who have responded in penitence and f a i l l i in God's redeeming love. But if it is t r u l y t h a t , it. must be also the fellowship of the concerned--of those who are concerned about, t h e needs, R p i r i l u h l and physical, of t b e i r fellow men both near and far. This means concern ·bout the need t h a t so many have to re- reive a convincing proclamation of the Christian good news. II. means concern about ignorance and poverty and corruption and war. And il means concern to remove the liarrfiTK to u n i t y and brolher- hood both within the Church Itself and in th« llf« of the community «nd the world. It Is a terrible judjfmenl against Chris- ll»n peoplo jf they fail lo ahow the world that, b«c»UM of the love of Christ, in their hearts, they must express concern for the needs of 'others and lead the way to brotherhood and justice. --Rev. William E. fiibeon Presbylerran Minister to Students THE WASHINGTON Merry-Go-Round By DREW nAMOII Wajhlnfton--The same dangerous mine ron- ditlont which killed (19 miners at West Frankfort, III., also exist «t Orient No. 3 mine 2n miles away, accordini to miners who work there. Both miner, are owned by the same company. It was a combination of escaping gascb And explosive coal dust that blew up Orient No. 2 and a United Mine Workers Safely Committee hat protested that Orient No. 3 at Wtltonvllle, 111., also could become.a death Irap and has warned that it should be shut down. The iafety Inspectors found tunnels heavy with coal duct that had not been mixed w i t h rock duj,t. though a 05 per cent m i x t u r e of rock dust Is considered necessary to make the dust non-explosive. A six- to 24-inch layer of coal dust was also dfscovered under the conveyor hells. In addition, no eschpeway had been installed In the rear of the mine. Befplte all this, Illinois mine inspectors had already liven Orient No. 3 a rafe-to-operate permit. While the federal (overnment lacks the power to enforce Its safety findings, .lohn L. Lfiwir. hat the power, under his contract, to order men out of an unnafe mine. .Ie is waiting to learn the outcome of a federal inspection before rie- ridlnn what to rlo. Meanwhile miners say they have so many Christmas bills to pay they are wllllnd lo |ambl« their lives by contlnuint. at Orient No. 3, * * * General Elsenhower's announcement that he Is available at a Republican brought wide and Interacting private reactions in Washington. Here are tome of them: Churchill and Truman--Were conferring when Ihe leneral's Paris statement was handed them. Churchill raised his eyebrows floo,uently. Truman grinrted like a hoy who's been keeping a sroret. "I knew he was running and as a ftepuhli- can," he confided. Inside. GOP Nflllonal Committee--"This means that Toft has real bis lengtic competition," was Hie private reaction of Chairman Guy Cla- hrielson. (Gahrielson has krpt aloof from Tail's battle to corral delegates, which Is why Taft wants him out.) Gabrielkon opined privately t h a t Tafl would not be able lo hold Ihe majority of the convention delegates he now claims, also observed thai Ike was not smart to let the Dewey professionals openly take over his drive for the nomination. (Dewey Is not popular with the GOP refulars.) Dewey ramp reaction--Dewey's old manager, Herbert Brownell and New York National C'om- mltteeman Russell Sprague, are already busy Ilnlnl up delegates. Both are shrewd politicians. Their ability should offset Dewey's unpopularity. Taft camp--The Taft brain trust will put mil. the Idea that Ike Is a Dewey ''stnogc": predict that Dewey will he Ike's secretary of state and adopt a Wall Street foreign policy; get General MacArthur to train the biR Runs nn his old comrade-in-arms.. MncArthur is especially burned up over Ike'fi f l i p that he was once WacAr- thur's ghost-writer and Is Itching to let loose with all he's sot. (Ike wrote MacAvthur's farewell to the Army when Mac retired us chief of staff--a stirring messnfe.) * * * Democratic Committee reaction -- Regular Democratic leaders privately aren't happy about Ike's announcement. They have long wanted to help the Republicans nominate Taft, believe Taft would be the easiest Republican to beat. That long-range strategy began hack in 19fiO when Democratic bigwigs helped put a weak candidate, Jumpln' .Toe Ferguson, up against Tafl in the Ohio election. They wanted Tafl kepi in the Senate as the ultimate opponent against Truman. Kefauver roaclion--The senator from Tennessee took Ike'* announcement in his quiet stride, continued wilii plans to toss his conn- skin hat in the presidential ring. Governor Warren--Chief Republican to benefit from the Eisenbowcr-Taft battle will be the governor of California. A deadlock between the two could put Warren in. * * * The president's remark to Churchill t h a t he knew Ike would run as a Republican was based on two conversations \vhich Gcorfic Allen and Averell llarritnnn had with Eisenhower. To both, the ^"neral made it clear he would accepl Ihe GOI* nomination if tendered. Truman, in t u r n , sent word to Purls t h a t he had no objection to Ike's running, in fact was glad to hiive an anti-isolationist Republican on- pnse Taft's isolationism. Rut the president said lie hoped Elsenhower would remain nn the jnb in Europe until the North A t l a n t i c pact ws.s working. * * * New Hampshire's higli-stnmg Srn.

"I taught my dog the trick for a special reason," she explained. "Lots of lintels arc silly enough to keep dogs out entirely. Now that my Fido can look so much l i k e a fur piece.

XXV AI-MA CONROY fu«p«nded the " making of crtpts suzette to iv»tch the cool, somehow infinitely older and more poised Tommy re- Itell His story. She had been given jsome uneasy moments in the polic* ptaiion at Longtown, P*., when Ishe had been questioned. But actually she wasn't expected to know Krcat deal--only that Tommy ihad hcen suspicious of Mrs. Dcn- ,ton and that he and Brighton I'Muncic hnd gone In pursuit of her lufler the disappearance of some IJcwels nt the House. Joe Denton hadn't known about his stepmother btinf in deep water until her sudden disappearance. Now Tommy began his story. "1 didn't have to invent much," he said simply. "I cauiht up with the three of them--Bright, Mrs. Denton and Apollo Brown--riding iri Brishl's car near the Hampton Circle. U's a new rood with no building! on that stretch. "Brown was driving. Juct ahead of me the car skidded in the snow and crashed into a telephone pole. Your--well--she was pinned under the car, probably killed instantly. Brown was hurt badly and 1 thought he was dead too, but BriRht was thrown clear. I slopped my--or rather, your cnr, Rot out and ran toward Hrlghl. He wan stunned but uninjured otherwise nnd after n tew seconds brftan to come to. 1 helped him to his feet and started to lead him towards your machine. Then 1 heard » shot and Bright folded. "Drown na ralatd himself on one elbow fat the »hot--ius\ as I t«ld the police. Then I saw In t lash just how . the whole thing could be hi*41*d. Brown had tolled over on Ml bide and I taw he was gnnt, too. Nobody would talk now. I put Bright In your car, found the Jtwtla, and the rest lyou know." · "Humph!" Mid Jo*, drawing · long sifih. "This winds things up very nicely, especially as the authorities here in New York seem latisned that Apollo Brown did the Mammoth Job--oh his own. They found his fingerprints there, I see. Some papers were missing from the files, and I'm still betting they were the proof that Mammonth's offer on the sweepings had been suppressed." "Yes," Alma agreed, "but," she wondered aloud, "what about Higgins Company.? Won't they talk?" "Only to back up my story," Tommy grinned. "It's n perfect out for them. They helped trap the old lady, period." Joe stood up and buttoned his coat. "Thankt for the meal, folks," be said. "And the usual Apologies about running afterwards. But I'm (lead on my feet, and you both must be, too. We'd all better get some rest." · · · VOn a while after Joe had gone Alma moved about the apartment quietly, putting things to rights, her mind fixed on one last problem. It was all very well for Joe to say that the whole dreadful episode was wound up, hut there was one thing Joe did not know about. He had never been told of the gold and moonstone cuftllnk which she had picked up In Mr. Wheeler's office Immediately after the murder. Slnct th« day she hart shown It to Tommy neither of them had mentioned It to anyone, not even at the police station, when an Inventory ol Brlf ht's be* longings ha* sk»wn that the matching link was in on* ol his tUtt-alMVW at DM Urn* k« was kUM. The mn sot tkouikl of It, UK Bon Its pMl«esl«a wwritd bar. It was lUU l» Mr kiodkag and had t«w all through the Investigation. Wai that Inquiry retlljr ended? She paused In her work, standing In front of Tommy, who looked up from his reading. "Tommy," she began, "do you realize that we are the only two people In the world who could prove that Bright was at the very least, an accessory to Mr. Wheeler's murder?" "You mean that cuff-link?" "So you've been thinking of it too! What if the police look for it?" "They won't. It's presumed to have dropped out on the road after the car wreck." This answer did not reassure her. "But it didn't drop out!" she persisted. "And, being found where it was found, is positive proof that Bright was at the Mammoth offices earlier in the day. Suppose the police realize. . . . " "Forget it. They won't But someone else might." "Who?" she asked In sudden fright · · * "DRIGHTS father," Tommy "said solemnly. "I'm not satis- fled that The Head won't want to wind up even the most minute detail about his son. That's the sort of person Mr. Muncie is. What worries me is that he may question me privately." "And If he does?" "Ought I to tell him the truth?" "After all you've done to protect him from it? Good heavens. Tommy!" "Hold on a minute, Jewels! Mr. Muncie isn't an ordinary person, satisfied with ordinary explanations. He's hard to fool and he's the soul of honesty. He must have known what Brighton was like- that he was weak, in spite of all his father's efforts to make him otherwise. Of course Mr. Munde's glnd to have his son's name kept clean, hut he's the type who probably feels that the truth is more than being hurt himself." She considered the matter for stvtra) seconds. How would she feel In Mr. Muncte'a place? How ha ah* tilt when ah* had bees siispkfout ·( Tommy and th«n found out he was Innocent! Would she have preferred to face t*e fact? "I Kt,- Alma Mid softly. "You meen that ptrnapi Mr. Mund» bai i right to know." Little Man Wonders How He'll Face Death When Called Upon For Supreme Courage; Many Reply In Battle Decisions By JAMES MABLOW Washinglnn-f/Pj-The little nun admired the wonderful courage of t'spt.. Kurt Carlsen In staying aboard the .Flying Enterprise u n t i l a few minutes before it sank It was man standing steadfast. And the l i t t l e man asked himself, as he figured other people must have asked themselves in reading of the captain's sturdy il day by day: "Would 1 be nrave enough to do \vhst he did?" The l i t t l e man was no hero, even in his own mind. But he had lived long enough to hnow it's wiser not lu tell yourself bcfore- land w h a t anyone, even yourself, would do in an emergency, facing death. It is only when the emergency comes, lie knew, lhat any man can find the answer although all m e n , Including himself, he hought, would like to feel they'd In nil right. At least, they hoped hey would. Many wouldn't, he knew. He mew men well enough for that, fe wondered how he'd feel ever after if some day the challenge ·ame for him and he found he l . r as one of thore who drew back. From that moment on would he ive, in his mind, like a man with u's coat collar turned up and the brim of his hat turned down, king through a crowd, hoping no one saw him. It was something didn't l i k e to think about. Yet, ilthoujfh his neighbors were excited about the courageous captain there was, somehow, a dull edge on his own excitement. He tried to root around In his head for the reason. He wondered If the dullness was due t« the time in which we live when millions of ! men--in World War II ard now I in Korea, Americans, British, Ger] man, Russians, Chinese, White, Yellow and Black--have been heroes most of them unnoticed. Some Supremely Brave To be sure, some have been brave in a supreme way. that WK not only noticed but rewarded with decorations: men who have stood alone against a hundred enemy or thrown themselves on a grenade to save the men around him. But every day on the battlefields there were magnificent quiet deeds of courage which were unobserved because they were so intensely private and internal and required nothing more conspicious than 'a decision in a man's head. The little man was thinking of ...I those millions of soldiers who were confronted suddenly and individually and for the first time with death in some dreadful form and had to discover just as suddenly whether they could face it. For some of those who found they could it was the .last discovery, undisclosed, for In the next instant death overwhelmed them. Dear MIES Dix: You have said n your column that girls should not wander the streets looking for dates; i agree with you but where n most towns and cities, is there a place for young boys and girls to ncct? Some towns near a service lave a U.S.O. Club where dances ire held, but many do not. Why ran't a meeting place bo arranged or servicemen to find nice girls nterested in dancing or other mild entertainment? Our local boys have all gone nto service, and isn't it logical hat the girls at home would he nlerfited, in turn, in meeting the ervicemen who are stationed learby? On weekends the boys in ervice gather on the street cor- icrs with nothing to do. the girlfi have to go somwhere by thfm- elvcs, so it's fairly logical that hey'll end up getting together vithout the formality of an intro- luction. None or us home-town ilrls like this sort at thing, but ve're really in a predicament.-- 'rudy Teenage. Answer: This problem is an r:ute one. and not nearly enough s being done about it. The KOlu- ion is in the hands of local civic nri religious groups and should be pearheaded by public-spirited itizens; it is apparently going lo ic completely ignored by officials. During the last war entertaln- nc-nt for the boys was lavishly rovided by every community in vhich it was required. Clubrooms nd meeting places were plentiful. The need is just as acute now, nd much less action has been aken to provide such facilities. 3oys in service now are prepon- crently either teen-agers or arcly out uf their teens; they need ntertainment and amusement on icir time off and it is up to in- 'ividuals to sec that it is properly rovided. It takes so little for the ercssities--a club room, music, few kind souls to make refresh- nents--any church or civic group an give these at least. A few amcs, puzzles, writing material or the overdue letter home--there ou have the nucleus for a social enter. Older people should be round to put the boys nt ease, nd, of course, the final fillip--a roup of girls eager to provide ieasant, friendly companionship. Dear Miss Dix: The entire 19 ear of my life have been spent in his small town. I'm an ambitious _ , _ _ ,, _, _ oy, and would like to see the ' wide, and three feet deep. night life of a big city, and meet new people. My parents, however, refuse to move. My 14-year-old brolher and I are in favor of going to a large elty, but our par- . cuts are set in their ways, and won't leave our home town. How can we convince them of the advantages we could gain by living , in a metropolis? Answer: Bifc cities are wonderful places, it's true, but they can be mighty unfriendly to a stranger --as hundreds of letters on my desk can attest The glamorous life of the theatre and swank restaurants does not carry the accent for city dwellers that one might suppose from a perusal of magazines and books. It's paradoxical that while country folk yearn for the bright lights of Broadway or State Street or Market Streel, city dwellers are beset with a desire for "a place In the country." Currently, there are many more books depicllng Ihe trials, tribulations and ultimate triumph of the businessman who chucks finance in high places for the placid existence of « farmer than there are tomes extolling the smash success of a farmer in Wall Slreet. Leave Family Alone You are very wrong to try .to move your family. Since they are content with small-town life, trial's where they should stay. Suppose you just continue with your schoolwork. or studying on' the side, for another few years, then you can brave the bif city alone. Don't try it unless you have some definite objective in mind, with enough knowledge and practical information to give you confidence. While working in a city, trying to make friends, trying to "el ahead in business among total , strangers, your greatest asset will be the assurance that mom and pop are back home guarding you with their prayers, guiding you with their familiar homilies, and --most of all--ready lo welcome you home should the big town fail to offer all you hoped for.
