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
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 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
"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
"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.
By Rev. Herbert
Spough, D. D.
TEN SUGGESTIONS FOR IMPROVING
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
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"
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
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.
