GILROY, D.D. 34 By rh( The Old Testament is a book of warning as well as of inspiration. It lifts us to great heights through its poets, saints, and prophets, and it inspires us through its stories Of heroic leaders: but it gives solemn warning of what happens when God is forgotten and people neglect their soul's welfare. The words in Deuteronomy 8:11-14 warn the people of Israel when days of prosperity come not to forget the past in which God guided them through the wilderness, not to forget their independence upon God "For it is He that j j| giveth thee power to get wealth." * Israel did forget, and the nation, built up to the glory of Solomon, went down in ruin and exile. It is the story repeated again and again in history, of nations drunk with material prosperity neglecting matters of justice and mercv. selling the righteous for a pair of shoes, and bringing upon themselves the inevitable judgment .God and of God's laws. of It 5s what has been happening in our own time, and those ancient words are full of warning for us, even in the seeming safety of our Western world. It can happen here. And in spite of all the faith and goodness in which we rejoice, the things that made for destruction in other nations—division and sectional strfie, selfishness, debasement of homelife. sexual looseness and immorality, false stand- among us that we might well pause •and consider what is before us. We are prone to forget that a diseased part may destroy an otherwise healthy body, prone to trust more in all that is good than to see the need of suppressing and overcoming evil. How can we overcome evil? One way is In seeking to restore insofar as we have lost it, the spirit and practice of worship. Church-going in itself cannot save a nation, but we would be a great deal nearer national salvation if all of our people were found on the Sabbath in places of worship. Even that formal habit would mean a seeking of something higher and higher. But we need something more than just church-going and formal worship. We think of worship as the adoration of God; but true worship is more than that. It is a search for God's will and God's guidance. It is a quest for help in living. Jesus made this plain when He said that God is a spirit, and that they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth. What does it mean to worship God in spiril? It means that worship is not just a matter of form, a compliance with certain rites. It must be the sincere worship of the inner life. What does it mean to worship in truth? It means that our worship must be related to fact and life, and imaginary world, but bringing not taking us into some remote God to us, and into the world of ards of success, etc. —are so rife our daily words and deeds.

But he believes its use marks a major contribution by the federal government toward fore - stalling future crime upsurges and orienting youth in the right direction. Says Clark: "The basic responsibility for combatting juvenile delinquency lies in the home and in the community. All the efforts of the government will be wasted if parents refuse to cooperate. Proper parental infleunce is the greatest single deterrent to juvenile delinquency. "In addition, I believe each community must accept its responsibility on the juvenile crime i'ront. This includes fostering programs of supervised juvenile recreation and selecting policemen who will cultivate the confidence and friendship of youths." Deferred prosecution first was employed seven years ago in Ihe Eastern (Brooklyn) Districl of New York. The results have been "remarkable an d inspiring," Clark says. "The late Leo J. Hickey, as U. S. attorney for Brooklyn, starl- ed Ihe plan. He had an exceplion- ally inlelligent insight into the problems of youth. At that time a youthful offender was indicted under ordinary circumstances. A trial followed. In worthy cases, the youthful offender was placed on Blue Grass, one of the world's great fragrances, in a delightful after-bath mist by Use it lavishly to keep you flower-fresh throughout the day.

Instead of determining whether n youthful offender was worthy of being released after trial and conviction, why not conduct such an investigation before prosecution to determine whether prosecution was necessary in the first place?" Hickey experimented w'.th the plan for two years, then adopted it as regular procedure. During the past seven years, Clark said, some 200 youths" have been granted provisional release from prosecution in eastern New York. Only iwo were reported as violators during" the supervision period. Several months ago Clark directed all U. S. attorneys to adopt the Brooklyn plan and report back to him. He turned over the reports to me. Here are some typical ones: Whit Y. Mauzy, Northern District of Oklahoma: "We have had six juvenile delinquent cases. Five have been handled under the Brooklyn plan. All five of 1ho juveniles so far are getting along fine." George F. Troy, District of Rhode Island: 52 juveniles were continued under probationary supervision with satisfactory results. Leslie E. Given, Southern District of West Virginia: "I do not recall any cases where this procedure has not worked satisfactorily." Steve M. King. Eastern District nf Texas: "Cases against 20 juveniles have been closed without any prost'cutive action since June 1 1945." Rehearing for Mena Druggist Who Faces'Chair Little Rock, July 18 — (UP1 — Eldon Chitwood, convicted nnir- i derer of a Mena, Ark., druggist ' and whose death in the electric chair July 8 was upheld by the Ar- kansas Supreme Court, today was assured of living at least 100 days longer. Chitwood's attorneys have filed a motion for rehearing on the supreme court action with Carl Stevenson, court clerk. However, because the court is now in summer recess, the motion will not be presented until Sept. 2?,. Stevenson said a decision will likely be handed down a week later oil Sept. HU. K tlio court denies the rehearing, an order will be. issued Jo Gov. Ben Lancy. who then will set the new date of execution. The governor's office said hen- today that Lanoy generally grants a condemned man at least ,'JO days life after linal court action.

That somehow seems to sum up the recent history of OPA's control of food. With OPA we had cci''ng-price scarity and relative black-market abundance. Without it there is relative abundance a- hove ceiling but below black-mar- AJt levels. The present silualiln isn't Rood. Congress has lacked the courage cither to kill OPA mercifully or to revise it sensibly. Mr. Bowles (now gone from Washington I and Mr. Porter never volunteered a suggestion that OPA was imperfect in theory or practice, or recommended any legislative improvements. Mr. Truman's contribution has been more critical than constructive. So we don't blame the UAW for its complaints last year or this. t l we doubt that country-wide rk stoppages for the purpose jjl" deinoiihtralion intimidated Congress, speeded the rebirth of a workable OPA, or did anything else except hold up production for a couple of hours.

Cof-1 fee (D-Wash) would be asked to "explain a five-year-old $2,500 "campaign contribution from a facorna, Wash., war contractor. Already, at Tacoma, Coffee had declared: "I welcome an investigation on the entire matter. Brewstor said that the committee has already asked ihe Dcparl- -n-.,-,| ,,f .ii, s ti,. 0 f ni . jt s fj] es on nn investigation which Coffee has said inuui.- 01 tue conlriDuuon. Brewster bluntly called Coffees definition of the 2,500 as a cam'-<n contribution a "belated alibi." Brcwter said of Coffee's willingness lor an investigation: "He certainty will be welcome. The more quickly he appears, the better." At Tacoma, Coffee said that the circumstances had been widely published in the state and that the Justice Department, after its investigation, found "no basis for action." Also at Tacoma, Contractor Ei- vund Anderson told the Associated Press: "There was no evil purpose in the payment of this money, x x x I was merely trying to achieve something that was highly honorable at Ihe time —remove handicaps as it was urgent to gel something done." Anderson explained he had a big building project then underway at Foil Lewis, Wash., and "things were not moving fast enough." Tim check went to Coffee's secretary at the time, Paul A. Olson. Coffee remarked that both Olson and Anderson ran for mayor of Tacoma in the primary this year and that Anderson was eliminated. He continued: "For a defeated candidate, :"ivc years after making a campaign contribution, to attempt to alter the entire complexion of the transaction, can only be construed as stooping to the lowest form of unscrupulous tactics." Coffee said "the campaign contribution was thoroughly discussed in the local press. The Department of Justice has previously investigated the charges and has announced there was no basis for action on its part." Before Coffee issued his statement it had become known that the War Investigating Committee was off on a tack involving three photo graphic documents:-' '•.-.* 1.

A letter from the secretary to tho contractor expressing gratitude for assistance, and noting that expenses of the member's office in Washington were great. 3. A letter from the member to the contractor saying that the "slip of paper" given to his secretary was going to relieve a great dea." of the member's worries. The correspondence was understood 1o disclose that the contractor had encountered difficulties ir dealing with one of the government departments and had gone to the House member for help.

Villarroel had gathered around him; Gen. Francisco Barrcro, army chief of staff; and Lt. Col. Luis Arce Pacheco, presidcnlial aide. All were on Ihe balcony wilh Ihe president: A policeman was killed outright. Police fired tear gas bombs into the crowd and rifle volleys into Ihe air, and Ihe incident was over. Finance Minister Viclor Paz Es- tensoro apparently was marked for assassination. Three men broke into his home and injured a man whom they apparently mistook for him. One report from the capital said 50 persons were killed and many wounded in pitched batllcs in Ihe streets of La Paz Thursday. A traveler form the capital said he counted the bodies 01 15 students, among them one woman, in the Paseo Prado, as well as cighl bodies of civilians in fronl of Paris Hold. the police announced they of La P had sci/.ed a "great quantify" arms with markings similar lo Ihosc used in neighboring coun- Iries.

Pedro Gutierrez Pizarro, Chilean school principal here, witnessed part of the violence in La Paz He was there Thursday anoniing, and saw a long column of teachers and students marching toward the National Palace. "At the head of Ihe march,".he said, "Ihcy carried the body of a sludenl tragically killed earlier in the day. Considering the hail of machine gun and rifle bullets that greeted them as 1 boarded the Irain, 1 suppose there must have been man- killed." The violence was reported to have started at noon Tuesday when students hissed and troops marching in the stoned capital. They broke into the Condon radio station, Hie reports said, and suffered numerous casualties when they were driven out. Travelers said that al 2 a. m. Wednesday, at the university of Sun Andres of La Paz, police attacked the students and afterward big splashes of blood wore seen in front of the building. On Thursday, the accounts said, and other Secretary of Stale James Byrnes would prevail on the Rus- or F. sians to free them. The case became clearer with the official report that the officers were in the NKVD hands, and the bargaining ha dbeen .'utile. Army sources had obscured il wilh incomplete or uncertain accounts, evidently in the interests of safeguarding the prospects for gelling the men released. All available investigators had been working oh the case. Among them were men frqm the CID, the counter-intelligence corps and the provost marsnal's office of military government headquarters. A German informant threw apparently extraneous complications into the ease.

The only Americans missing, after ihe :frce- ing of the harrisons and discounting 20 AWOL enlisted men, were Cobin and Wyatt, they said. Investigators labeled the German's report as ''unreliable but worth checking." They said it contained several plain inaccuracies. o Former Hope Girl Dies in FortSmith Dorothy Sparks Henderson, 28, formerly of Hope, died at her home in Ft. Smith Thursday after a long illness.
