Needed: Understanding Never was .there a jrnMtlcr flclil for corporate and individual Christian fiction · than In the present Hgo. nor mnrc urgent dem'ands for mutual ·nnciprstanrlinK. sympathy, and ( h o compassionate deed. The chaos of modern life and the immeasurable Buffering to which- it has given vine may have tended by their very magnitude and persistence both to deaden men's sen- dibilities »nd to discourage the individual, . who in the face of it all feels himself to he utterly .helpless. Such'r.n attitude is not 'ChrisUan, but that of a defeatist. The Christian must never give way to hopelessness, he must see in every threatening 'niluftiion a personal challenge to thought nnd action. Hope, an the modern theologian Maritl«n has pointed out, is nothing less than a Christian duty, Much fa being said today by Christian lodors about the need and importance of evangelism. The word evangelism is often too narrowly Interpreted, as though it meant little more than its declaration of the gospel rne»sa(re. What the gospel mes- Mfe heed* is demonstration. In its wider and truer connotation It implies the determined effort to bring the spirit of Christ into every part of the common life nnd to this end every Christian should be - HP. evangelist. In this age of corporate action the importance of the individual's task and re- uponsibility may all too easily be nifnl- mifced, but it in never minimized in the New Testament and should not be in Fay- «tteville. We have all ntot people with this Bens* of Futility. They have said i n . despair, "What can 1 dp? A n y t h i n g I'd do would be only a drop in the bucket. Orij man's vote won't change t h e election," It might if a thousand voters took that re-' mark personally and acted on it. I say it might; it did--not long ago ami not so far ·way. While the Individual .may feel with good reason, his own inadequacy, the supreme test for him is to be found not in the obvious success of his efforts, but, in the sincerity and completeness of his dedication a.a a Christian anil as a.citizen.

THE WASHINGTON Merry-Go'Round . Br DREW PEAMOU (Editor's note--Drew Pearson's column today Hikes the /orrn of a letter to his daughter, Mrt. GCOIKC L. Arnold, of Santa Monica, Call/.) Washington. B'. C. January 26, 1!IS2 Daughter, The house has seemed .very empty ever since you klfls left. I suppose I sliouldn'l call you kids anymore imismuch as you're a grownup lady now wllh Hvo sons of 'your own. Hut anyway H'« been loniisome since you left. We packed up Ihc electric train and put II In the atilc till next Christmas when 1 hope you'll be back, and when litlle Drew will be ijblo Id operate it Almost as much ;is his grandfather. Only next lime please don't fly. We almost held our breath until that plane got back to Los Anfir-les. A lot of things have been happening since you left. Ainnng others, Hurry Trmnnn has been trying lo put me in j n i l a^ain. Undersecretary of the Navy Whitehall- lipped him off that I had written a. column about a White House conference with General Bradley and he Immediately blew his top. 'Hie column hud been on the teletype lo New ' York one hour when I began lo hear about It. , The president was . really mad. He slorfncd and raged and mild he would throw me In jail. 1 can't begin to repeat ills language, but it was pretty rough. · : Finally he told General Bradley to get hold of me and kill the column. However, when General Bradley read the column he didn't seem to thl'ik there was much wrong. He suggested only two changes, which . I was glad to make. . * * ·* The column was published on schedule a.s corrected,-no military secrets were revealed, and so far I am still out of jail. But that didn't end the matter. Immediately afterward, the president ordered the FBI to make a super dupcr investigation 1 of your old man, together with just about everyone I've ever talked to at the Army and Navy, On top of this, .Jim Mdrierncy, assistant attorney general In charge of the Justice Department's criminal division, (his boss. Howard Mc- Oi-alh doesn't like me) had the FBI contact some men who once worked for me and appealed to them to disclose my news sources. N a t u r a l l y they didn't. They didn't know my sources in the first place and wouldn't have revealed 'cm if they did. ' ' The While House Invcsllgators then ring hack i n f o whai 1 said In defense of Gen. George Marshall when Senator McCarthy attacked him, . lind have been trying to find out where I got the material I used one whole year ago. I compared General Marshall's wonderful war record with McCarthy's failure to take part In any combat missions; so the Invest Igalors want to know where I got McCarthy's war record, which they say wns supposed to lie a complete secret. Funny how Die president now wants to pro-, tcct one of his worst senatorial enemies and go after a newsman who defended his old /rlend Marshall. However, that's the way things are sometimes done around here these days. However, I'm still out of jail, and If anyone has detected any pulling of punches as a resull of all this, I hope my family will be the first to tell me. * * * Meanwhile, I went down to Hetdsviilc, N. C., last week, to the only town where 1 wns supposed to have spent, some time in jail--aside from a short Intci'lm in a Siberian jail as the guest of the Soviet. -. I don'l know whether it's because a criminal always returns lo the scene of a crime or whether the folks.of..Holdsvlllc wanted'to give their most famous alleged tailbird a *home-cominc reception. BfiLanyway I went down lo North Carolina nnd had a wonderful lime. P. W. Glldewell, the attorney who defended me against the charge of taking a swrngc ba'th In the Southern Railroad yards at .1 .1. m. After Inking down a chnutaiiqun tent, introduced me to the Tlcldsville Chamber of Commerce where I spoke In the evening, and we had q u i t e a lime. A lot of things have changed about liclds- vlllo since that first memorable occasion when 1 was there. And I guess a lot of things have changed about your father, too. I was 16 then, just out of high school, nnd no one ever dreamed I would become the bole noir of certain politician's, least of all myself. ncldsvilie was just a counlr.v vlllnce then, nnd its chief Industry was H.ed Jay nnd Black ·Eagle chewing tobacco. Now that same tobnrro factory turns ou( IflO million Lucky Strikes a day. nnd even 1 mornlnt .Ihc American Tobacco Comnhny hands Uncle Snm a check for $800,000. as Its dnilv clcnreltc tax. Judge Ira Mumohries. who acnulttcd me for talilntf the bnth In the railroad yards, has retired now. And the court house .where T was tried has been torn down. (Incidentally, your father was never actually put in jnil--just held for an horn- by a very courteous cop.) The welcoming rommitiee drove mo down to the railroad yards lo l i v lo find Ihc splcnl find Ihe scene of the alleged crime, but we couldn't locale II. The town hns changed too mui-h. *· ·*- + · In fact, il's become qlille modern. There is an up-to-date Negro high school more modern than the white schools. And 1 saw a blue-tile com tmmity swimming .pool which should make impromptu bathing much easier--and less public.

The old school is gone now and a modern one has taken, its place. It made me feel a little uld-lo sen how things had changed. .Those wert; the good old simple days before the atom bomb, tho days when William Jennings Bryan, then sccmlnry of state, hnd time to gel. out and sprak lo thr people on Chnutnuqua; the days when a lecturer didn't need a microphone and a loud-speaker.

That was also the summer that the Archduke Fran?, Ferdinand was killed by a Serb assassin in a l i t t l e town in Bosnia, thereby precipitating World War I and a series of events which havr made all our livos a l i t t l e more complicated over ;lnrt\ « In those days, Rcidsville was like most towns of America--clean rows of white comfortable cottages with wide verandas and hammocks where we once sat and held hands wit^i good- looking girls on Saturday nights. And, though things have changed a lot, therr Is one thing about this and the /other small towns that hasn't changed--the people.

A--This Icrm has for many years been ap- ·pllod to Londoners who search the muddy hanks of tiic River Thames in the hope of finding something of value. There is a small organization of men nnd women,' named the Mudlarks, who scour the river banks at low tide searching lor historic relics. Latest "kibitzer" story tells of one of the most persistent of the brood, who hovered behind a card player for three solid hours giving advice. What's more, the player won consistently. Suddenly ho found himself in a quandary. Turning to the kibit?.er, he whispered, "Well, smart guy, what do 1 play now, the ten or the queen?" The kibit7.or answered, "First you've got to tell me this: what game are you playing?" * * * Samuel Johnson, displeased by tbo reception accorded him in Dublin, observed tartly, "Our Irish cousins spring from nobody at anybody!" * * * A brassy young busher, who thought himself too good for the Three-Eye League, walked off the job and wired John J.

McGraw wired back, "Tighten up." * * * When the high-handed and rightly feared Catherine tho Groa't occupied the thrjne in .Russia' one of her most learned advisfirs forgot a date wth her. He was too important to her to be banished--or executed--for his oversight, but the next time he appeared at court, the Czarina showed her displeasure by ostentatiously turning her back to him. /·The wily courtier clapped ht hands with delight and murmured, "I had been told you were angry with me, Your Highness, and am overjoyed to discover .you still consider . me a trusted friend." Thr Czarina, surprised, snapped, "Where did you get that idea?" Your Highness turned her back on me just now," explained the courtier. "She is not in the habit of doing that to her enemies."

I've got to introduce the speaker--a fellow from the Housing Authority. I'd ask you to come but I don't think that public housing is your dish."

I had a bad time last month over that loyalty oath. I spoke out against it, got pretty excited, stepped on a few egos, and since then I've felt the cold shoulder from a lot of the men who used to be friendly. Except for Pel- leticr, I'm not sure I have a friend on the staff." He dug into his eyes with thumb and forefinger. "I don'l know. Maybe I'm just being paranoid." "No, I don't think you are," Jennet ventured to ssy, wanting to warn him, yet not daring to betray Gus's confidence. "It seems to me I've heard bits of gossip--in the lunchroom and around. Why don't you go up and talk to the superintendent? Tell him you made a mistake and you're sorry about it." Are you kidding?" he said sharply. His eyes were hard and cold, the color of nickels. "I'm not on their side. Men like Maxwell Coin scare me. All he earra about, is protecting his real-estate Investments. I know all about his holdings from Krcd, this friend of mine who's speaking tonight. Cola is one of the most ruthless absentee landlords in this city. He's making money from human misery. And thai scares me." "All right, all right," Jcnnft mid, "don't yell your head oft at np*. I'm net going against you. And 1 think. CMa is sort of dil- arr«eab!e myself.

(T* B« Backroom Politics May Head Off State GOP Primary, Sew Up Arkansas Vote For Taft Br HARLKV PKRSIIING Little Rock-(/P)-Kinances and some back room politics appear to b« blocking s proposed Republican presidential preferential primary in Arkansas this year. This is the consensus of several veteran politicians and political observers. One politician said that unless court action is filed it is doubtful that the prim»ry will be held, He saidvihat most top officials of the Hepublican party in Arkansas are committed to support GOP presidential aspirant Sen. Robert Taft (R-Ohio) and nre working behind closed doors to prevent nny- nE from upsetting their plans. A preferential primary might do Ft that, he said. At least one state Republic.TM leader, Jeff Speck, a candidate for the GOP gubernatorial nomination this year, thinks there will be primary. Speck has indicated that, unless the officials of the party permit a primary to be held, he will seek court action compelling them to do so. Speck, the ID50 Republican candidate for governor and a strong supporter of Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, accused a "segment of the state GOP leadership" of forming A closed corporation to support Senator Taft. He predicted that, if a primary 1 conducted, Eisenhower will carry Arkansas. Former Gov. Harold Stasscn of Minnesota filed a petition with Stale GOP Chairman Osro Cobb calling for the primary. He offered to share the cost. A 1939 state law requires a po- litical'party to conduct a preferential primary if petitioned to do . However, finances play a big part in the matter. The party can decide against holding a primary if the cost of such an election proves to be too expensive. Cobb recently announced that it would cost between $75.000 and 5100.000 for a preferential primary. The money would be paid by the cag- didalcs whose names are on the ballot. Stasscn is the only GOP candidate who has said definitely he would assume his proportionate share of the cost. ! , Speck, a leader of the Arkansas- For-Eisenhowcr Club, has indicated that the general's name will be on a primary election ballot if there is one. This apparently means backers of Eisenhower would pay his ballot fee. · No dates have been set for the primary but presumably it would be held before the state GOP con- vention'opens here April 2S. The election would be conducted similar to the Democratic party primaries. Polling places would be established, judges, clerks and election officials would work at the polls. Cobb already has asked county Republican leaders to sec if they could obtain volunteer workers for the polls to help cut down the cost of the proposed primary. Sp far there's been no public announcement on how many persons have volunteered. - One state office holder, a staunch Democrat, predicted toriay that many members of his party would vote in the COP primRry. He cited rules of the Democratic party which do not prohibit s Democrat from voting for a Republican candidate or nominee for president. It's against the rule for a Democrat tu vote for any outsider who is .seeking an office other than the presidency. This rule is an outgrowth of the Wilkic movement several years ago. Several Democrats bolted the party in support of Wilkic and by ;o doing lost their standing in the Democratic party. However, the party rules were changed later to permit the Wilkic supporters to be reinstated. Arkansas Republicans normally innkc their presidential choice at the state convention. The selection is made from the floor of the convention, similar to the procedure of the national party convention. However, some Republicans, including those who support Eisenhower, fear that Taft would be selected to receive Arkansas' votes at the national GOP convention. They charge that selection of the nominee is made in back rooms and not on the floor of the convention. Dear Miss Dix; My husband and I have had quite a bit of discussion on a matter which we view quite differently. He likes to play cards--not to gamble, but as a pastime when visiting friends. He believes that kind of card playing is all right and would like very murh to have me learn some card games. 1 have the Iceling that any card playing is wrong. I have- tried / to change my viewpoint but while I realize that a social game of cards is not as wrong as the Rambling type, I still cannot quite accept it, What is your opinion in this matter? F. F. Answer; Playing cards, like so many other things in this complicated world, can be gond or evil depending on the use to which they are put. As instruments of gambling they arc as vicious 31 anything on earth; as a means of passing a pleasant social evening they are as harmless as checkers. The theatre, books, movies, dancing--all have pernicious potentialities as well as possibilities for good. Fortunately, all of those everyday sources of recreation, including cards, are morn often employed in their favorable, rather than unfavorable, aspects. Don't Compromise With Conscifn stance, might be, I would not want While pointing out how innocuous a game of'Canasta, for instance, might be, I would not want to undertake the responsibility of advising you lo com- promise with your own conscience. Any attempt on your part to force yourself into doing something contrary to establish ideals and training can result in an emotional conflict that will counteract any social g a i n - you might achieve. If you continue your contention that card playing -is against your conscience, your husband should gracefully accept your judgment and be proud of your adherence to principle. Most of the trouble in this world is caused, I believe, by people compromising their own convictions. Too few people are steadfast enough to maintain a firm stand on principle in the face of. criticism. You arc to be commended on having sufficient character to do exactly that, so if" you cannot reconcile a game of cards with your conscience, let the cards go. Denr Miss Dix: If a woman marries after she's 30, what do you think of her raising a family that late in life? Answer: Thirty isn't as late in life as you intimate. Many, many women begin and raise very successful and happy families in their thirties. While it is nice lo have an earlier start, largely for psychological reasons, to be past 30 should not be' considered an insuperable barrier to family life. A physician can give sound advice* on n woman's physical fitness for the undertaking, and she should Ihon surrender all qualms.
