HOLY WEEK SERVICES
(Continued from page 1)
Last Supper on the night of I-i'
betrayal. There will be no three-
hour service on Good Friday, the
lecture Friday night taking the I
place of that service.
This series of lectures is designed
to answer questions about the
Christian faith, said Rev. Byrnc,
and an opportunity will be given
those who attend to place questions
in a box, to be answered at subse-
quent services. In addition there
will 'be a celebration of the Holy
Communion every morning next
week, except on the morning of
Next Sunday and on Easter Day
the regular schedule of services
will be followed, with IHoly Con-
muunion at 7:30 a. m. Sunday, morn-
ing prayer at 10, and on Easter Day
Holy Communion at the same hour.
In regard to his series of lectures
Mr. Byrn, said: "Man's. world and
man himself is in a mess as a re-
sult o.f his false assumption that he
can do without God. Man's great
material advance has caused this
false. assumption. Now we are reap-
ing the harvest of such an assump-
tion. The crux of the matter is that
we have said there is no God, ant
now we find that we cannot live
without Him. M'an must stop anc
thinkand recover his faith, a rea-
sonable faith in God and hims.lf."

Lighthouse Keeper Found Dead
E. W. \lMarler, a.-sistant keeper of

in his workshop Wednesday noon
by one of his small daughters. Ho
was lying in a pool of blood with 13
stab wounds around the heart, oie
in the throat, and one hand nearly
severed from the arm. Nearby ,were
lying a knife and hatchet. The
theory was first advanced that Mar-
ler had taken his o-wn life..but after
viewing the body Sheriff Parker
doubted that a man could inflict so
many and such deep wounds on his
person. No verdict was rendered -)y

was murder or suicide.

Our Country B Right or Wrong
WE MUST BE MILITARILY STRONG
"The Czech People Have Now Set Their Feet
Firmly On the Road to Freedom and Democ-
racy." That headline was splashed across the
jlrst page of one of the largest newspapers in
the world the day after the Communists took
over the Czecholovakian government. The pa-
per, as the reader may have guessed, is pub-
lished in the Soviet Union. Its name is Pravada,
which means "Truth."
This particular Communist achievement has
an ironical twist. Czechoslovakia was largely
the creation of an American with a passionate
faith in representative government, Woodrow
'Wilson, and its constitution was patterned af-
ter ours. Its president, Eduard Benes, is a dem-
ocrat with a complete distrust of the Com-
mriunist ideology. He fought as long as he
could against the Red onslaught. But in
Czechoslovakia, as in other countries, the Com-
munist technique proved sound. No one knows
just what proportion of the Czech people really
want communism, and it hardly matters, for
the Communists were superbly organized and
disciplined, and the opposition was weak and
divided; devoting much of its energies to in-
ternal quarrels. Thus, this Communist victory
was much like those which have gone before
-except, in Czechoslovakia, there was no need
for much force of arms. But no one doubts that
the arms would have appeared and been used
had Clement Gottwald, the Communist leader,
thought them necessary.
Now, following this Communist coup in
Czechoslovakia, Stalin's demands for a "de-
fense" agreement with Finland, and mounting
totalitarian pressures in France, Italy and other
European nations, the international situation
,has been brought to its worst point since 1939.
It is clear that those who dislike and envy
us abroad respect only one quality in a coun-
try-and that quality is military strength. It
is not war-mongering to say that the United
States must maintain a defense establishment

WHAT THEY THINK OF HARRY'S BILL
Anent the furore that has been created, in
the South over the Truman deliverance on civil
rights, we'd like to pose a question: Is there
anything about these matters that is agitating
the South and the Democratic party of the
South in particular at this time that cannot be
laid at the door of long and rigid adherence to
the one-party system down here? We could
answer that question, but we propound it more
to stir thought than to get our own answer in
---Fort Payne (Ala.) Times.
The explosion in the South has all turned out
to be a false alarm--somewhat of a joke!
When the southern critics and some of their
representatives .on Capitol Hill examined the
president's remarks more carefully, they had
to admit that his arguments were all supported
by the Constitution of the United States, which
provides equal suffrage rights for all qualified
voters---meni and women !
-Montpelier (Indiana) Herald.
The only salvation for the South, as matters
stand today, is the two-party system. It is im-
perative, it the South is to keep its heritage
and its traditions, that it learn to vote Repub-
lican at least half the time.
-Ft. Lauderdale (Fla.) Daily News.
WVhile we appreciate the feelings of the aris-
tocratic South, the great majority of the Aim-
erican people will hail the courage of Presi-
dent Truman in sponsoring the civil rights bili
providing for greater equality among the peo-
ple of this great country. It took real courage
on the part of the president to take this action
in view of the anti-racial feeling that has ex-
isted in the southern states these many years.
-Salt Lake City (Utah) Times.
BETTER THAN TAX CUT
House Republicans pass a six billion dollar
tax cut. Suppose, instead of reducing taxes by
that amount, the six billions were collected
and used to reduce the national debt. To weigh
the benefits that would flow therefrom, let's
examine some other round rigures:
Interest on public debt-$5,250,000,000.
Population of U. S. A.-140,000,000.
Per capital share of public debt-$1,828.57.
A six billion dollar cut in the debt would re-
duce the per capital share of the debt $42.85.
Which would be quite an .average saving for
men, women and children.-Pittsburgh Press.
A news dispatch Saturday said that "the
Democratic party's high command decided Fri-
day to fight its presidential campaign on two
issues : Peace and prices." Don't tell us they're

Bill Shands'Het Up'
Over Sales Tax Talk
Gives Challenging Public Answer
To Critics Trying To Pin
Label On Him
1W. A. Shand's, candidate for go\,
ernor, Wednesday ilignt at Orlanao
slapped a challenging public answer
at critics who have been trying to
pin a -sales tax label on him. At the
same time he asserted that he
never has been and is not now in
favor of a general sales tax.
"But remember that Florida lives
on sales taxes," said Shands. "More
than $86,000,000 o!f her revenue
comes from four sales taxes-gaso-
line, ,beverage, racing and cigarets.
Would those who attack the sales
tax repeal or veto these four sales
taxes? And wlie.re would they start
cutting olf' services if they did?
Would they close the schools, cut
oft the aged, the crippled, and tihe
blind? Or are they, after all, in fa-
vor of these sales taxes?
"They say I introduced a sales
iax bill in the legislature. So I did.
but it was not' a general sales tax
on all commodities. I proposed a
replacement tax to relieve the
excessive burden on real estate, to
allow resultant business develop-
ment and to give relief to munici-
palities. I made certain it would not
place a burden on the low-incorme
"A r-placement tax is far differ-
ent from a general sales tax on all
conmnoditie.s. I 'ineu' when I intro-
duced the replacement tax bill in
1947 that it would be smeared as a
sales tax-tbut I knew also that
there was not enough money to pro-
vide the benefits and services the
people expect of this state.
"Those who criticize it do not tell
you what benefits it was d,-signed
to provide.. They do not tell you
that it placed no tax on staple
foods; that it provided for a re-
*. turn oaf money to muni cpalities and
'e. towns; that it would have required
a lowering of real estate taxes;
that it was aimed at the big fellow
and would not have imposed a ,bur
den on the man of small means.
"No-these are the, prophets of
false economy again. They promnlt-

bonus for eating them. They prom-
ise state improvements which cost

We mentioned in this column a
couple of weeks ago that we be-
lieved Dan Brooks had quite a bit
of Scotch blood flowing through his
veins, and now we know it. .
Fonzo Gilibert needed a particular
type of lock for a construction job
and Dan didn't have one in stock-
but he did have one, on the back
door of his, store building. .
Yep. you've guessed it: He took the
look off and sold it to Fonzo! We
casually remarked: "Dan, I'll bet
you'd sell your wife if you could
get a good enough price for her.-
To which h-, replied: "You're darn
tootin' I'd sell her if I could get out
what I've got invested.'
Quite a bit of speculation was
aroused Sunday as to just what Doc
Ward hIad been iup t. Seems
he came tearing in from Beacon
11ill at umpteen miles per .hour,
hitting only the high spots, with
Highway Patrol.man Olin Davis
right on his tail and his siren
s.creanmnin.g like a banshee. Odds
were offered by betting folks that
Olin wouldn't catch Doc-with no
takers. However, it turned
out that Doc had been called at the
hospital for an emergency and Olin
had been sent out to round him up.
Apparently Doc had got the jump
on Olin on the return trip and w~as
Mrs. G. L. Kennington was one
surprised housewife Monday when
a strange man knocked on .her door
and asked her if she had any bread
in the house. Mrs. K., thinking per-
haps the stranger was hungry and
asking for a handout, went into the
larder and came tip with four slices
of bread. Whereupon the stranger
dug down in his pocket and handed
her a. $5 bill. .She stared at
him as though she thought he was
crazy. Then he explained. Seems
it was- an advertising stunt, and
any housewife who happened to
have one particular kind of bread
on hand wthe.n he knocked on her
door received five bucks. .
Now a lot of local housewives are
going about their housework sing-
ing "Who's That Knocking At My
Door," with one ,ear cocked ex-
pectantly for the sound of knuckles
on their portal.

Record, who seldom comes into Tile

thing, like paper or metal rule, wav
telling us on his last borrowing trip
of the, strawberries he was raising
on his. rancho, boowv good they were,
and that he had been contemplating
bringing us some. Naturally, we
told him of the luscious berries we
used to raise i.n our backyard be-
fore they were. drowned out and
how his couldn't even begin to com-
pare with 'em. .. Ain't all ama-
teur gardeners the darndest liars?
. Almost as bad as fishermen,
although the gardener will spenu
more, to raise one tomato than the
fisherman will invest in a 5-pound
bass that in a short time increases
in 'weight to 10 pounds.
