P.A.Y.G. BEATS I.O.U.
When Virginia's Senator Harry Flood Byrd
was 15, as the legend goes, he'made a pay-as-
you-go deal with the station agent who was hold-
ing the Byrd newsprint for express charges, so
that the family paper, The Winchester Star might
continue publication. His subsequent rescue of
the family fortunes may well explain his dedica-
tion to pay-as-you-go.
Later, as a state Senator, young Mr. Byrd
was a prime mover in establishing a state high-
way system for Virginia whose only paved
road connected Washington and Richmond.
This too, at the insistence of Senator Byrd, and
then Governor Byrd was a pay-as-you-go opera-
tion, and still is. No bonds, no debts, and for
years now a system.of roads as adequate as those
of any state to the needs of its citizens and
Today, Senator Byrd warns against President
Eisenhower's ten year highway program, ex-
panded by his advisory committee in record time
from :50 to 101 billions. Dollars, that is! In-
stead of loading this additional debt on unborn
generations,. with an additional 11 billions of
interest, the Senator would repeal the Federal
2 cent gas tax, give it back to the states to do
their own road-building, and finance the present
Federal aid prorgam with a new half-cent *gas
tax and a tax on lubricating oil.
We are told that our present state, gover-
nors, -all 48, favor the Clay Committee plan -
proving, no doubt, that 101 billion dollars can't
be wrong, But perhaps we'd better listen to
former Governor Byrd. We can't think of a
better- qualified witness.

After the second straight day of retaliation
against the Red Chinese air and sea attack on
the Tachen Islands area, the Chinese Nationalist -)

ships, the most significant casualty is the tiny
British freighter Edendale, a 1,717 ton vessel But
sunk in the Red harbor of Swatow. At this writ- cells

we see it". The following day, Senate and work
House leaders were briefed by Secretary of State the e
Dulles, and Admiral Arthur W. Radford, chair-
man of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and who has
just returned fro ma Far Eastern inspection tour.
The meeting was secret, and not even Senate

rritation itself will not make you cough. A tiny cluster of brain
must first order the various muscles involved to provide the ex-

SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON
'^^ > --- ^ ^ ^^^~^~^^ ^SS ^ A ^ ^ ^S^^^NiSi^ ^ '^ ^^'^^'1'1'*
by Rev. Charles P. Price
Pastor Zion,,. Fair, Baptist Church
As we present this lesson think-
ing of this wonderful subject, 'First
Man's Nature"; as we study God's
creative work as it relates to man,
there are several factors of great
1. The creation of man was pre-
ceeded by a divine consultation.
God said let us make man. This
consultation was divine. It was a
consultation held by three persons
of the ever blessed trinity who were
in the creative work.
2. This consultation was solemn,
in that 'the light, the waters and
dry land, the heavenly bodies, and
the brute world, had all heard the
voice of God, and obeyed it, but no
consultation had been held prior
to their entrance into the world.
The reason being, because they
were matter, dumb, and impotent.
But now is to be created a being
endowed with mind and volition,
capable even of rebellion against
his creator. Therefore there must
be a pause before such a being is
created. This matter must be con-
sidered. Man's relation to heaven
and earth must be contemplated.
It was indeed a solemn event.
3. This consultation was a happy
one. For the divine being had not
yet given out. In the creative work,
the highest thought of His mind, he
'had not yet found outlet for the
larger sympathies of His heart in
the universe He had just made and
welcome into being. The light could
not utter all His beneficience. The
water could not articulate all His
power. The stars .did not whisper
His name. But the being of man is
vocal with God, as;no other creative
ogject. He is a revelation of His
maker in a very high degree. In
him (man) the divine thought and
sympathy found welcome outlet.
The creation of man was also hap-
by in its .bearing toward the exter-
nal universe. The world is finished.
It is almost silent. There is only
the voice of the animal creation to
break its stillness. But man steps
forth in the desolated home. He can
sing a hymn. He can offer a prayer.
He can commune with God. Hence
the council that contemplated his
creation would be happy.
Man Created In The Image
of God :
Man originally was God-like, with
certain limitations. Man was like
God in these respects: In respect
to his intelligence. In respect to
his moral nature. In respect to his
dominion. In respect to his immor-
tality. In respect to .he power of
creatorship. Man can create and
invent. Man must ha es been made
in the image of 'God, title grandeur
of his moral ruin is inexplicable.
From this passage we learn of the
dignity of man's nature. The great-
ness of Man's fall, and the glory of
man's recovery by Christ. We so of-
ten read in the scripture where
Christ calls himself the son of God.
Also the son of man which indicates
he had the nature of both God and
man. He represented the best that
there was in God and the best that
there was in man. Or he represent-
ed what man was in his innocence
before the fall.
Then in brief let us think of
man's need. Sin is universal. The
whole human race is proven to be
negatively and positively bad. Af-
ter God made man Holy and good
it is like a beautiful picture that was
left in reach of the child with a
hand-ful of jam. Satan's filthy hand
touched God's beautiful picture and
ruined the image of God in man.
So now man needs a saviour and
the Hebrews tell us that Christ
-took not on him the nature of an
angel but he took on the seed of
Abraham. He was made like his
brethren that he might understand
our sorrow and our temptation God
has provided a saviour and this is
And since a saviour is provided,
then it is man's ,great responsibility
to accept that saviour. God's prom-
ise to man is vindicated in Christ.
We are taught that man, having
the limitation of a human body,
with five senses, man is made "a
little lower than the angels" but in
the earth-sphere where, he in the
body is placed, he is supreme. He is
Lord. Everything is subject to him
'So God constituted his relations
amid all earthly things. Man stands
first, crowned with glory and hon-
our. Set over the works of God's
hands death and the sin which
make it a necessity, can cannot
control. This complete rule over
absolutely all things in the earth-
sphere is realized in one man. The
representative, the "man Jesus
Christ" the son was made a little
lower than the angels, made a man,
in order that He might deal with
the one thing, death, which man
had no power 'to conquer as a man
,was it possible for Him (Christ)
to taste death, and conquer it for

ODD WAR BUDDIES "I knew
I'd seen you somewhere-a long
time ago." President Eisenhower
was talking to J. J. Parrish, Titus-
ville, Chairman of the Florida Cit-
rus Commission. "Now that you re-
call it, I remember that day well,"
he said. "You didn't know whether
to duck or not." The place; the
White House. Parrish was there to
represent Florida in the presenta-
tion of the big punch bowl of citrus
to kick off the "Citrus Fruits for

that the President was referring to

Success with Inconex
Angry owners of a particular cornm
mnercial refrigerator blamed thy
manufacturer for failure of the units
and subsequent food spoilage. A hur-
ried investigation revealed failure
of the diaphragm in the temperature
control. The diaphragm material,
weakened by constant compressor
pulsations, stiffened and failed un-
der temperature changes. The prob-
lem was resolved by substituting
Inconel, a nickel-chromium-iron al.
lay, strip for the diaphragm.
