The next day, satlafled that they would eicane detection, the rob- her* went to the *t*dlum to enjoy the Corinthian fames, But the.V were urtcom- fort»ble. In their imagination nuapicinin tyt» surveyed their every action. Be- caUK .of their accusing conwienceR It Mtihed as though everyone in the stadium ·aw that their hands were red with the blood of Ibycus. Then a flock of cranes flew, overhead; and when .the one ou.tlaw saw it, he called out in terror: "Look! Look, the cranes! The cranes of Ibycus!" This led to the arrest and execution of Timotheus and his accomplice. i The cranes of Ibycus fly .over our heads, as it. were, from time to time. We flatter ourselves mto thinking; that we ire about as good aa flan be cxpEcted, We drug ourselves with the delusion that we have fairly well kept the moral law. We flee from inward pangs of iruilt into various channels of diversion. But every now and then"things happen to arouse the sleeping conscience and amplify the small, suppressed voice into a booming, damning fulmmation that completely shatters our peace of mind. . . ' What is there to .quiet a condemning conscience? The Gospel of Christ: "There is . . . no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus" (Romans 8, 1) "If any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: nnd He is the propitiation for our sins: and not, for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world" (1 John 2,1-2). "God WHS in Christ, reconciling the world unto Himself" (II Cor. 6, 19), "He bore our sins in His own , body on the cross" (I Peter 2, 24). "In Christ we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins" (Ephesiaus 1, 7). "Therefore being justified by faith. we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ" (Romans 5, 1).

THE WASHINGTON Merry-Go-Round ' a)r DMW PEAMON (This Is the last of Drew Pearson's 'current series of columns on General Eisenhower and hi* work in Europe.) , Washington--The rush to get dose to the throne ha» already started in Paris. It always starts with a presidential candidate, especially a prospective winner, and with Ike it's started earlier than ever. His office is deluged with newsmen, magazine-writers, barons of big business, political hot shots, old friends and others who want to nudge closer to the man they think will be the next president of the II. S. It's a long way between Paris and New York, hut distance doesn't matter when It comes to basking In the smile of a future president. Ike is even experiencing already tthe Jealousies of the palace guard. It was scrambling lor position among the nobles around the British crown that caused the civil wars of England, and it's jealousy among Truman's close advisers that sometimes contributes to his isolation-and resultant blunders. Already Elsenhower is experiencing some of this unpleasantness. It began over a year ago when the Pentagon had to assign a press relations man to Ike's staff. Col, Pete Carroll, one of his closest aides, reported in Washington that the general wanted Merrill Mueller, NBC commentator, to handle his press relations. He got Brig. Gen..C. T. (Buck) Lanham, a tough combat officer, wounded in Germany. * * + Lanham turned out to be tops, plays no favorites, Issues no "diplomatic" denials, has- steered clear of politics. Ike has been lucky to have him. . · · ' However also attached to Ike's publicity staff, nobody knows exactly how. is Col. Jock Lawrence of Hollywood, former publicity man for Sam Goldwyn, later for J. Arthur Rank's British movies, Lawrence was In the Vanguard of those edging toward the throne, and it was rumored that after November he would be the Steve Early of the new Eisenhower palace guard. · However, Lawrence appears to be falling by the wayside, with -another huckster edging into the inner circle. He is Howard Chase, public relations expert for the giant General Foods Company. Chase was recommended to Ike by Clarence Francis, charman of the board of General Foods, even though, when Chase carr.o to Perls to see the man he was to promote for preiident, he had not made up his mirid whether hf wej for Ike or for Taft. He Is now worklnj on Ike, however, though In New York, not Paris, and Is supposed to be strictly political. Chase is a man of inclination, and when the general made his first NATO report on the European army, he proposed that Ike walk past » row of I! NATO generals with 12 reports under his arm, passing them out like diplomas, while newsreels and TV cameras clicked away merrily. General Lanham promptly sat on that, and so did Ike. Thus continues the scramble to get close to the man who someday may be king. * * * So far the man whose favor Is sought doesn't seem smiled by It all. He remains simple, direct end politically somewhat naive. I am convinced alro that Ike has a nostalgic reluctance to sever all ties with the Army. The Army has'been his career. He has lived it, breathed, it, been proud of it, and in some ways I think ht hates to quit. It may sound paradoxical, but I am also convinced that FlBcnhower if comnletely civilian- minded and would lean over backward, if president, not to encroach on the slightest civil, business, or human liberty. There would be far less chance of his scir.lnji the steel industry, I bellrve, than perhnns even Taft's. despite the fact that Taft Is In the forefront of Truman's steel critics. Ike, however, is so afraid of mixing military power with civilian control, that his errors would he in the opposite direction. Eisenhower also has a healthy respect for the truth, not alwayi cherished by other military men nor by certain civilians in Washington. During the war I recall all too vividly the denial Issued by his hpadouarlcrj when I first broke the story of Goneral Patten's slapping the sick soldier. In a matter of this kind the Army's worri was gospel, and Its official denijil issued at Eisenhower's headquarters meant that almost every newspaner editor and reader would accept the denial as conclusive. Ike was away from his headquarters when the denial was issued. But the next day he returned, reminded his staff that the truth was the truth. The Army swallowed Its pride. The denial was reversed. * + + Another paradoxical thing about Eisenhower Is that while he was spending a lifetime in the Army, his mother wa- ti pacifist. Unquestionably. Ike inherits some of his mother's passion for peace. To me this is not strange in a soldier. 1 have long been convinced that our best soldiers, the men who know what war really is. are our best pacifists. Ike would also be militant in his championship of racial and religious minorities. I tlon't know how he stands on the FEPC. but 1 suspect hf is against It because he doesn't like eilhcr compulsion or government bureaus. But there Is no question where his heart stands on the general issue. Regarding the rest of the ramified field of domestic problems, I suspect that Ike has a great deal to l^arn and will be the first io admit it. I s'uspect also that he will bump his head many times before he does learn, One minor head-bumping took place at a luncheon with a group of newsmen and commcn- "Kwps Looking better and Better for Me" They'll Do It Every Time «--......--. By Jimmy Hatlo . -- 1 Boylei By HAL BOYLE New Yorlc-W)-War is like roatri- mony. Whoever it touches it change!. Many who go through a war emerge from it with nothing but I feelinf of resentment for the time it has taken out of their livei or the way it has frustrated their personal plans. War teaches others how Io appreciate the deeper joys of living. That is an odd by-product of the business of killing. The most immoral · thing about war is its waste. And 1 think that time this is what you get to hate most about it--the waste of life, the waste of food, the waste of money and metal. Everything about war is wasteful by necessity and this fact weighs upon a man more and more. It is a violation against natural economy, the inherent urge in everybody to conserve. In war you see so many things tossed away needlessly that it is hard ever afterward for you to throw away yourself. You become not so much a miser as a string- saver. blsh' delusions you m«y hayt had about what you ought to ««t and where you ought to live. It teaches you that anything tastes food when you really hungry, and that any place out of the wind's way is good enough when you are really worn out arid sleepy. No man who has known the real privations of combat ever again feels in his heart that he has to own a 12-room house to be happy. War kindles a new appreciation in you for the simple pleasures in life you always took for granted before. You learn what things really hold meaning to you, what are unimportant--which goaJs you really cling to, which are no longer worth idly dreaming of. A sun-) set is a vast thing to you when you know it may be the last one you'll ever see. Most Americans take their food, clothing and shelter pretty much for granted. War teaches you how basic these things really are and to be properly grateful .'or them. When you have shivered in a cold foxhole a few nights, the chance to sleep in a warm bed seems a blessing almost too wonderful to stand. But while war gives you a real understanding of primary essentials it also removes a lot of snob- lattor of Portugal, or what Mussolini talked how to solve labor problems. His ides was cooperation between capital and labor, a working partnership together. "Aren't you afraid," remarked Bob Sturdc- vant of the American Broadcasting Company, "That that will be misunderstood?" "Yes, that sounds just like Salazar, the dictator of Portugal, or what Mussolina talked about--the corporate state," reminded Dave Schoenbrun of CBS. Eisenhower hadn't thought of that. He probably had In mind the profit-sharing plan practiced by Eric .Johnston of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce or Stuart Symington when he ran Emerson Electric. Ike agreed, however, that his idea held oolitical dangers. In brief, General Eisenhower will make a great leader on all of our difficult and complicated foreign-affairs front. But when it comes to domestic politics and problems, he has an awful lot to learn. BevneU One of the biggest advertising experts of our time began his career chasing one-inch insertions for his home-town weekly. The. barber proved obdurate. "Been cuttin' hair right here for sixty years," he maintained, "and never advertised yet." The young solicitor nodded and asked, "How long. would you figure the church on the village green has been standing?" " 'Bout three hundred ears, I expect," said the barber. "Exactly," agreed the solicitor, "and they still rin^ the bell." * + * Desmond Flower, London publisher, suggested to his American confreres a means of com- batting the televi.iio i menace. They need only joii. forces and take over an hour each night on every network. As the hour begins, the screen turns blank, and a soothing voice intones. "The next hour of blessed eye-rest and silence gives you a .chance to read a good book, and comes to you through the courtesy of the publishers of America." * * * Remember a football team that came up from the South years ago from'tiny Centre College and beat the then-mighty Harvard eleven? The nickname of the valiant little Centre squad was "the praying colonels" because at crucial junctures of a contest all the boys would kneel and pray. H. Allen Smith avers that one day in the dressing room, the Centre coach suddenly cried, "Down to your knees, boys, hero comes Grantland Rice!" * * * Pressed to say what he considered the most striking difference between the customs' of his native France and America, movie maker Jacques Barr came through with, "Well, in America if you try tr strike up an acquaintance ·with a luscious lass you spot on the avenue, a policeman promptly arrests you. In la belle France, the policeman introduces you." * Questions And Answers O--why are London policemen called bobbies? A--From the nickname of Sir Robert Peal, founder of Scotland Yard. Q--Which president wrote a 500-word his- · tory of the United States? A--CaIvin Coolldge. Q--Is there a shield commemorating Benedict Arnold at West Point Military Academy? A--Yes, in the old Cadet Chapel where, on the walls, are found marble shields commemorating Revolutionary War commanders. Arnold's is without a name and with only his rank and date of birth. Q--Has France ever been ruled by a queen? A--No. Q--Why are whiskers useful to a cat? A--In the dark, the whiskers are brought forward to touch nearby, objects, and to help the cat get through bushes, or to avoid walls and trees. Q--For how long was Detroit the capital of Michigan? A--Ten years. From 1837 to 1847. Patience is a virtue war teaches to many. In wartime you have to spend so much time interminably waiting . . . waiting . . . waiting that if you cannot learn to curb your impatience you are likely to fret yourself into a quick insanity. But perhaps the greatest gift of war is the installing of. an understanding of loyalty. The battlefield is the great crucible of friendship, and nowhere else is it tested more firmly. Men who hove faced danger and shared lear and fought it down together know an unbreakable comradeship, a bright bond that will never fade. These are a few of the things war teaches. All of them cculd be learned as well in peace. And perhaps in wiser days mankind will come to learn them it peace. Dear Dorothy Dix: For the past two years I've been so restless that it's beginning to affect my marriage. I have a wonderful husband, bust just can't find enough in him or in our home, to interest m. We have no children. What is the matter with me? I am Z5 years ojd.--Rita P. Answer: Nothing is so Inducive to restlessness as Idleness, and of that you -have just too much. If your home is a small apartment, or even a small house, you simply , don't have enough to do to keep I busy. That's a sad state of affairs for a 2.1-year-old girl. Are you completely lacking in initiative or resourcefulness? Get busy and you'll soon forget to be restless. Volunteer as an aide in your local hospital. Offer to help care for the children there; give them their meals, wash them, read to them. With so few nurses to do so much work, a pair of willing hands will be very welcome. Offer your services to" the Red Cross; they have dozens of jobs 'you could fill. Surely you have some talent you could share with others. Be generous with it! CO THf!

She hadn't found George's mathematics lecture very exhilarating, and now, she said, he had to catch up on some lost sleep. Kendall had more Important .hings to do. He checked with the desk first to see if there had been any phone calls for him, but there vere none. Maybe Marilyn had 'orgotten about the call, he jhought. Well, it was still early, 10 told himself, and not yet time .o worry. He mentally reviewed his plan. ut he wasn't too certain that it would work. If he couldn't drag Chief Big Bear away from Mariyn, perhaps he could succeed in dragging Marilyn away from Chief 3ig Bear. He looked at himself in the mir- ·or and considered his chances. He never In his life would be ady killer, but he might hold his ground against Arno If Arno weren't too handsome. George's face was pleasant, he decided, dignified, but not re- itrtlned. The thing that worried him was that most of Marilyn Sut- worlh's heartbeats were of the tomboy athletic type, and in this capacity he fell short of expectations. George was a little too short, a little too slight of build. Still, It was worth a try. Gelling close enough Io rival for her affections was going tn be big problem, especially with Chief Big Hoar In the picture. And If the Chief got wise, Kendall realized that he might well get on the wrong end of a strangle hold The Important thing was to keep his own emotions In check but at the same time make Marilyn light up a torch for him.

But again, there was a potalbll Ity that her feelings toward Mex Arno mljht be the mote perroa ent type. George was not com- letely denying Verne's belief in rue love. But George hoped to e able to kindle Marilyn's affec- ion. She was flighty, unstable nd completely unpredictable. "·"EORGE KENDALL was in the 'middle of plans that never eemed to go any place when the com clerk called. There was omeone downstairs who wanted o see him. ' 'Send him up." George ordered. But first, who is he?" He won- ered if it could be Max Arno. "It is not a he--it is a young 'Oman. A Miss Marilyn Sut- rorth." "I'll be right down," George said: But before he could get away rom the phone, there was a knock t the door. He opened it end Marilyn came in. 'Nothing you do surprises mt," he said, admiring her black velvet acket. "How did you know I liked velvet?" "I looked it up in my trigonometry book," she answered. "Now re you coming out? 1 don't really now you well enough to come In." "Wait a minute," he said. "I'D get my topcoat." "I siippote you think It's a little bold--my coming up to your room Ike this, but I was going to phone, only I h e p p e n e d to be in the neighborhood, se bete I em." "And I'm tied you eame." He closed end locked the door behind him and hoped that Verna would not hear him leaving. "Are you hungry?" he asked, et they went down the slain. "I'm famished," she said, "but jhen you have to escort me up to my apartment. Max and I are dying to know who'i trying to murder you." He had elmost forgotten about this little matter end he did not relish the thought of coming feee to faee with Mex Arno, the man who might try something dote to, If not short of murder.

I am by no means a slovenly girl, but I am inclined to put off today what I can do tomorrow. I am being married in six months, and would like to know how I can cure myself of this terrible -thing. I want to be a good wife but a lazy girl can't be both lazy and a good wife. Answer; Your position was summed up some time ago by the fiance of a young friend o( mine. The girl was beset by exactly your woe -- she admitted to laziness while wanting to be an efficient housewife. Said' her fiance, "I don't know what you're going to do; you're too lazy to keep a clean house and too particular to live in a dirty one." What happened? They married.. and lived evermore in a sparkling, beautifully run home entertaining ·ell and completely happy. No, it ·as not achieved by a miracle. The girl knew what kind of home he wanted and determined to lave it. It was no easy task for er; the 'fight against laziness oes on to this day, but indolence a consistent loser. There is no easy recipe for the conquest of tloth. It murt be tackled each day, and you must be the winner. May Be Phyii"! Condition There is a possibility that physical condition may be at the bottom of your difficulty. A thorough chcck-iip, followed by faithful adherence to the doctor's orders, may affect a considerable increase in your ambition. Vitamin pills can work wonders -though not miracles. When you have your own home, you must make up a set of rigid rules Jor its upkeep--and since you have a tendency to procrastination, these rules must be more strict for you than they would be for other homemakers. Never, never, for instance, leave dishes in the sink. Never leave a newspaper on the floor, or an ashtray filled, when you retire at night. Don't, put off shopping until the staple shelf Is empty. Acknowledge every note as soon as you read it. Prod yourself Into punctuality. Such unceasing tactics have made models of promptness and dependability from some of the most indolent people I know. Don't ever let your husband depart breakfastless in the morning while you loll in bed, and don't ever succumb to the temptation, to go back to bed after he has.left. Once the day begins, keep on your toes. Keep your schedule and when, in the afternoon, you take time out for a well-earned rest, it will be with the very pleasant assurance that the house is shining, and an appetizing dinner is all ready except for last-minute touches. Isn't that a picture to strive for? You know, some of the most efficient people are the laziest. In *»··..**»··'.. looking for their work, shortcuts to they devise speed many truly amazing time-savers. Ai. . your own initiative to individual problems. Start the fight now, never give up for a second, and good luck in a happy marriage. A single type of plant can be subject to 20 or more diseases.
