YeSJfl}n>itS wage' agreement Oct.rl6 at Chrysler Corporation and any other companies where contract provisions permit; UAW President Walter P. Reuther told a news conference after a session of the executive board that the intervening 60 days will be used to evaluate government - efforts to hold back inflation, and on the results of that study the extenl of wage demands, if any. will depend. • Reulher explained Ihis does nol mean a wave of wage demands. He expressed the hope that such a develoomenl will nol be necessary and thai the government, instead, could conlrol Ihe situation. He said the whole issue depends on .what, the decontrol board, OPA and the agriculture departmenl do lo conlrol prices.

GILROY, D.D. To speak of Ihe sacredness of human life seems .almost a mock- erv in an age of the mass slaughter of "war. the pre-war murder of millions .and the postwar aftermath of strife, violence, and starvation. But human life is sacred, and the real mockery is mans' mockery of God's laws and of God's ways. God's laws and ways' •are manifest in Jesus, who, in contrasl lo the powers of sin and 'destruction, said that lie r had come thai men might have life, and that they might' have it more abundantly. That declaration marks the completeness of the 'contrast between ihe Kingdom of Christ and the kingdoms of the world. The kingdoms of the world, In civilized states, have, it is true, professed lo be ori the side of lite. But Ihe annals of kings and king, doms are full of -atrocious crimes j on the port of those whose profes- Agkipst this, the piofound need is gkip estajb VI!-' • SL ' ( -' business was to make and in- force 'laws as rulers. Murder so directly contravenef the spirit and teaching of Chris thai it is amazing lhat a profess edly Christian world has made so little progress in combatting wa and in promoting peace men. Defensive war—resistance lo terror and aggression—is a differ ent mailer; but no nation, no even our own. has an entirely clean record in this respect. Every county too often has viewed killin] ns justified when the stale order; il. lo establish tho tiuth thnt all killing wrong, a sin againsl humanity :l against God, except in cases vixere' it is neccssarv lo the pro- ervatlun of life itself. Insistence on the sacredness ot luman life did not begin with .Jesus. It'was a part of that noble eaching 'and tradition of Israel hat He said He had come, not o destroy, but to fulfil. The earlv chapters of Genesis are remarkable for the clarity of heir teaching concerning human llfn It is brought out strongly in ;he dramatic story of Cain's murder of Abel. The provision of the ernes of refuge, which might provide sanc- tuarv even for tho man who had possibly unintentionally killed another, was a striking insHancp of tho intensity of the conviction con- coining the sacri'dness of human life And the whole story ot Abraham—his plea for the inhabitants of ;i \vickd city, his willingness ^to forego his own advantage fo sake ot preventing strife— phasiv.ps Ihe moral foundations of humanity and ot human relations 1 . and Ihe* sacredness of life itself. The noblest teachings of the Prophets make life and healing and salvation the ideal gonls of faith and conduct, with sacrilico for others, as is Isaiah 53, a mark of supreme goodness. To all this Jesus gave the Hi witness. There is hope of wor d peace only as the world learns lo fellow'His life-loving and life-Kiv| ing way. 15 Killed, 250 Hurt in Riots of Calcutta Calcutta, Aug. 16 WP) — Fifteen porsoiiB were killed and 250 in- injured todny in riots between Mos- "!• ;:'-'S, lems and Hindus during a Moslem «oos e.r 2 Market Report POULTRY AND PRODUCE Chicago, Aug. 10 — — Mve poultry: unsettled: receipts 24 trucks, no cars; FOB prices; fowl 27; leghorn lowl 24.f>; roasters 2831; fryers and broilers 28-32; old anged. independence.

(Substituting for James Marlow) Washinglon, Aug 16— (A 1 )— Al- mosl half a million veterans of World War II are laklng training on the job under the Gl bill of rights Organizations are throwing away his education because they're using up their allotted time in on-the-job training 1 programs? which neither «ive training nor lead lo better jobs. An official of the Retraining and Reemployment lold me something else. He said he couldn't sub- slanliale il, but he was certain it could be proved if facilities were available to do so. He said some employers get veterans to sign up for on-lhe-job training and then snlit with the veteran the $65 or $90 governmen subsistence allowance. Some 'veterans, oul of work and clolhed in mental khaki, arc willing lo make such an arrangement. It assures them a small income for up lo four years, depending upon how muc'li' GI education time they earned in the service. The reason it's possible for employers and veterans lo get logelh- er on a scheme like Ihis in some stales is Ihal' Ihe slales, which have the responsibility of supervising job-training oulfilu, claim Ihey can'l afford lo do ine supervising. Slales will soon gel funds lo keep an eye peeled for all unscrupulous job-training practices. The president last week signed a bill which will accomplish this end. The same law estabishes a sel of "minimum standards" lo which all slale anoaroval agencies must conform. These minimum sland- arda should go far toward olimi- nating evil practices on the part of both employers and veterans in the job-training program. In a previous article il was staled lhat no veteran job - trainee could make more lhan $175 or $200 over and above his subsislence allowance. This should have been clarified lo show lhal Ihe combination of wages plus allowance cannot under the new law exceed these amounts: $175 fit the vet- pran has no dependents) a»d $201 if he has one or more dependents. o BACKFIRE Bnkersfield, Calif., Aug. 15 — — Smoke was pouring from all the windows of the Kern county fair's main exhibil building.
