Its foreign missionary work ex-

Parent Example to the Child—
If we don't want our child to do
a thing, we better be sure that we
as parents do not dt> that thing. ^
Dr. Robert W. Leeper, of Uni-
versity of Oregon, is right when
he warns parents, who riding thru
a red light will convince their chil
dren that laws aren't to be obeyed
despite what you say.
Harold E. Stassen Speaks Out—
In strongest terms, Harold Stas
sen in New Boston speech, rings
true to hearts of America when he
said: "All thinking should begin
and end upon the question of the
prevention of a third World War"
This, he said, tends "to shackle
our minds at the very moment in
history when it is most essential
that they be unfettered."
And, he ridiculed the idea an-
other war would mean the end of
civilization even an atomic war.
Some Scientists who helped de-
velop the atom bomb were in the
audience as Stassen shouted:
"Terrible devastation and de-
struction and suffering can be ad-
ministered, but, in my judgment,
man can never fashion the means
of destroying all men; man can
never wipe out entirely through
the world that curious combina-
tion of progress called civilization
Sounding a theme "man was
meant to be free," Stassen lumped
Stalin and Communism in the
"same philosophic stream" as Hit
ler and Nazism—a philosophy of
"materialism and force."
Representative Dwight Rogers—
Of Florida, sounded a keynote
in addressing the House of U. S.
Congress. He told the House that
the ceremony for signing the
North Atlanta Security Pact over
looked a signal point—There was
no prayer. "This omission is but a
duplication of what happened at
the United Nations organization
at San Francisco," he said. "Let's
hope that it will not be a stumb-
ling block to the ultimate success
of this Defense Pact." We are
proud of men who stand for the
essential things of life. Our need
to look to God is our greatest im-
