Thursday, July 13,1950 Implications Of Conflict In. Korea Is th fighting in Korea to be the begin* ning of another world war or is it just an isolated incident without far reaching effects? That is a question being pondered by all non-communist people and no one can supply a definite answer except the dic tators who rule Russia. It has become the concensus of opinion that Russia has instigated the conflict in Korea and has ordered the communists of North Korea to invade democratic South Korea to test the strength and fortitude of the United Nations, which as a world or ganization is pledged and committed to rush to the rescue of any nation being made the victim of another in aggression. Russia apparently is using the Korea situation to find out what the United States would do and to find out just how much support the United States would have from the rest of the free world in the event of a global war. The prompt and definite action of the United States in sending armed might into Korea gives Russia a definite answer. Meanwhile, Russia is clamoring that the United States is the agressor -but no one except communists who know no better can believe such rot. Commenting on Russia propaganda, the Charlotte Observer had this to say: "What does the intensified official and semi-offficial campaign of denunciation of "the United States as»an aggressor mean? "It could be interpreted as meaning that the Kremlin had decided to take some kind «£-drastic_action — possibly an attack up on the United States or one of its associates —that would be the start of real war, and is psychologically preparing the Russian people and those of satellite countries for the plunge. "The Moscow government must know that its campaign of denunication of the United States as an armed aggressor falls on deaf ears among the governments and peoples of all anti-Communist countries. They know it was no act of aggression for the United States to go to the aid of the embattled republic of South Korea after it had been invaded by armed forces from Communist North Korea. "The Soviet campaign has no influence on the minds of anybody but Communists and the people who live under Communist governments and have no way of learning the facts. It is logical, therefore, to assume that the intensified bitter campaign of brist ling denunciation of the United States as an aggressor is designed to influence only the minds of the people who believe Soviet lies. "It could well be that STALIN and his fellow-gangsters have decided to embark upon some enterprise that will call for united and fanatical support of all Com munist and pro-Russian people and are seeking psychologically to prepare them for a "holy war in the cause of peace" against the "warmongering imperialist ag gressor." "Whether we shall soon have a third World war depends exclusively upon the decision in the Kremlin. Nobody else can decide that question. Meanwhile we can still hope that Russia is not ready to plunge mankind into another World war. "But it is imperative that the United States and all anti-Communist nations be on the constant alert as a safeguard agfainst surprise and as fully prepared as bfeibfe for any eventuality." "Prevent Fire, Save Lives" A new poster for Fire Prevention Week —which will be observed nationally next October—has been chosen by the National Board of Fire Underwriters. It shows a mother playfully lifting her young child above her head and is captioned: "For their sake—Prevent Fire, Save Lives." There, in a few words, is a vital message. Fire kills some 11,000 human beings every year in this country and at least three-quar ters of those deaths occur in homes. Among children fire continues to lead the causes of accidental deaths at home. On top of that, fire is responsible for horrible burn ings and maimings. In many cases children are crippled for life. Fire Prevention Week comes only once each year. But the spirit that motivates the week should remain in force every day and every night. There is no end to the job of fire prevention—unless we are constantly on guard, new dangers will appear. Safety in the home demands year-around vigil ance.. Rundown heating systems, worn and defective wiring, improperly stored attics, carelessness with smoking materials and matches — these are all prime causes of home fires, and the house that is relatively safe today may be a menace tomorrow. Remember that simple motto—"Prevent Fire, Save Lives." And act on it. o -THE EVERYDAY COUNSELOR By Rev. Herbert Spough, D. D. TEN SUGGESTIONS FOR IMPROVING FAMILY LIFE 1. Play Together. Home is a place for the family to have a good time together, to laugh and enjoy each other—share jokes, play games, listen to favorite radio pro grams, go out together for dinner, to a movie. Sometimes go out by pairs, shop ping, fishing, hunting, or a hike. 2. Celebrate Special Days as birthdays, anniversaries and holidays. Make the most of such together. 3. Share Experiences. The evening meal offers a grand time to share the day's hap penings together — the unusual, the beau tiful, the funny, th^ helpful, or some diffi cult problem. Try a Family Council. It's a fine way to talk over problems, iron out squabbles, clear up misunderstandings. 4. Sing Together. Don't depend entirely on the radio for your music. Try some home sings with camp songs, fun songs, spirit uals, favorite hymns. This is particularly good for Sunday nights. 5. Work Together. The best way for parents to get children to do family chores is to do them together with them. Home repairs, washing dishes, ironing, mowing the lawn, planting flowers, any sort of work done together can bring rare fellow ship. 6. Understand Each Other. Dad may be cross because of business worries. Mother may be sharp about late hours because she loves her children. Mary may be irritable because some special date did not come through. Bill may have something on his mind. Try to be understanding and each can help the other. . 7. Invite Guests Into The Home for ham burger fries and weiner roats in the back yard or a buffet supper inside. Make it a point to include someone that you know is lonely. Open the windows and doors to your home. 8. Go To Church Together As A Family. Spiritual unity is essential to a happy home. Go with the desire to be helpful and when you return share the good things and don't serve "roast minister" or "roast neighbor" for dinner. 9. Worship Together. Join hands around the table at meal time and repeat the bles sing in unison. Do the same with the Lord's Prayer. Pass the Bible or some devotional book around the table for each njember of the family to read a portion. Where there are small children "tuck them in" at night with a Bible story or prayer and a homey little talk. 10. Give Sacrifically. Teach the children early to tithe, and practice it as a family. Share with your church and the needy at home and abroad. Try adopting a family overseas. Your pastor will help you. These are some of the ties which will bind a home together and make it more than a parking place by night and a cafe teria by day. o Support Y. M. C. A. Efforts , . „ M (By MRS.
