: From WASHINGTOH
■" J have just returned to Wash-]
ingion for the opening of the 1
Session cf Congress; and I'
feel that I should give you my
about some of the issues
that will foe brought up for ac
tion during the coming months.
Probably more than at any
other time in history, all of us
are' j?re-occupied, and rightly so,
with the continuing efforts be
ing made to preserve world
There is a definite trend to
put our foreign relations on a
person-to-person basis. More,
and more, world leaders are
sitting down face-to-face in their
efforts to reach reasonable so
lutions to critical problems. I
> think this is good. We are
, learning that we cannot buy
• friends and allies by merely in
creasing foreign aid grants. It
4 is clear that we must establish
more direct contacts with the 1
peoples cf the world, not just
governments. I have long agreed 1
with tre idea that we could i
greatly improve our foreign re
lations by establishing a special j
school for the representatives we
sefod to foreign nations—a kind
oAWest Point for diplomats.
While world problems take a
grtat deal cf our energy, time,
ani money, we cannot hope to
solFe them without keeping our,
own economy strong. I am 1
deeply concerned about the j
'waite and extravagance still ap-l
in many government)
agencies, and I shall continue]
to work not only to balance'
.he budget but to begin mak-l
iifg payments on our national
debt. I feci that definite sav-J
iiips can be made through more
effective disposal of our surp us ;
farm commodities, thereby re
ducing staggering storage costs.
Savings can —also—be made by
eliminating much of .the over
lapping in our missile program
and by Congress exercising c’os
. er control over foreign aid ex
Prolonged strikes and threats
of strikes in our basic indus
tries are a most serious matter.
The recent steel strike was ex
tremely costly to our entire
economy, and I am fearful that
the settlement reached will
touch off another round of infla
Last year Congress passed a
reasonably good labor reform
law in spite of Jimmy Hoffa.
Mr. Hoffa .has said that he and
his cohorts will make every ef
fort to defeat the Senators and
Congressmen who voted for the
labor reform bill. I voted for
the labor reform bill, and I shall
continue to vote to curb the
power of Mr. Hcffa or anyone
else who undertakes to defy the
Government or the best inter
ests of the people. The repeated
threats of Mr. Hoffa have not
scared me in the past and they
will not scare me in the fu
We have sor.te very serious
problems in regard to our farm
economy. It will be most diffi

son holds office. Mr. Benson
1 persists in his belief that un
i limited production and lower
price supports—often be.ow pro
duction costs —are the answer.
The tobacco program has prov
en that he is wrong. I am foope
’ful that some way can be found
to stabilize tobacco prices, which
would enable farmers to recap
ture many foreign markets and
at the same time bring hope for
an incresae in acreage allotments
next year. Work is already un
der way to make badly needed
adjustments in the laws affect
ing cotton in order to avoid
the chaos that existed in the ad
ministration of the program last
Another matter in which I am
deeply interested is water con
servation. Work is beginning on
the Wilkesboro Reservoir and
the deepening cf the Morehead
| City harbor and channel. Stud
ies are continuing on the Cape
' Fear and Neuse River basins.
J These studies are progressing,,
but too slowly. The Corps of
j Engineers and the Soil Conser
vation Service have been work
ing on the Cdpe Fear survey
for several years, but as yet no
report has been made. I think
Congress should step in and in
sist on early completion of these ,
' I am sure many other vital'
) issues will come before Con-
I gress. It is impossible to men
j tion all of them here, but they
] will include civil rights, Social.
Security, minimum wages, and
I education, to name only a few.
: I sincerely hope that when mat-'
[ ters in which you are interested
are considered by Congress, you
( will make a point of giving
me the benefit of your thinking

Promoted In Navy
On December 16, Lin wood L.
Radford, son of Mr. and Mrs.
Levi Radford of Edenton, was
busy sewing on his “crow,” as
t.he Navy’s eagled rating badge
is affectionately called.
On that date the Navy De
partment announced Radford’s
promotion to Interior Communi
cations Electrician Third Class.
The promotion fallowed suc
cessful completion of Navy-wide

ducted last August.
Radford enlisted in the Navy

our love for Christ and our com
mitment to .him, not because
such obedience will save us.
Many American Christians have
been victims of .the idea that if
they were only “good” enough,
God would have to save them.
By “good” they .have often
meant refraining from any gross
outward sins such as those which
get into the newspapers. Or
sometimes certain sects refrain
from dancing or certain habits
because of their interpretation
of “goodness.” Seldom have
they meant the sins of pride or
While the moral practices
which the church encourages are
very important and desirable, we
must never fall for the idea
that we are saved 'by these.
Our moral living is the result
of our faith, and not a substi
tute for it If we depend upon
obedience to the law to save us,
we would be no better than the
Pharisees, who would let an in
jured man die rather than break
the law against working on the
Sabbath. As Jesus pointed out
(Mark 2:23-3; 6), - the Pharisees
were destroying the spirit Os the
law by insisting upon the letter.
Many Christians do the same
thing. This is especially true
when form or ceremony becomes
a legalism. Baptism is a spirit
ual sacrament for which water is
an outward symbol. This water]
is applied in different ways, by
different faiths. The trend to-!
: day is to give the one to be!
baptized a choice of which way!
he wants to be baptized—sprink
ling, total immersion, or what
have you. This is a recognition
. of the fact that no one form
is “right” to the exclusion of
| aV] others. -a. . ,

in the communion service. Some
receive communion whi.e kneel
ing; others receive it seated;
still others, standing. To Jesus
and Paul and Peter it would
have made no difference. Each
way is equally valid if the spiri:
of the particiants is right. Le
galism comes in when someone
insists his way, and only his
way, is the true form.
Legalism, regardless of form,
fosters pride and self-righteous
ness. Legalism fosters division
and bitterness. Diversity in
Christian practice and organiza
tion is not necessarily evil. It is
only so when diversity leads lo
legalism and this, in turn, leads'
to division that evil comes.
We must watch our tenden
cies toward legalism, because i
stresses side issues instead of
•he majestic essentials of Chris- 1
tian experience. Such an ap j
proach often puts organization I
above the needs of God’s peo- j
pie. We must keen bright and
clear in our thinking—the—pic
ture of Christ, who lashed out
against neglecting “the weight
ier matters of the law, justice
and mercy and faith.” (See Mat
