Carter apologizes to Democrat
for ignoring them last year
WASINGTON (AP) - President
Carter apologized to the Democratic
party yesterday for neglecting it, said
he needs its help and promised to do
better from now on.
The Democratic National Committee
in turn gave him three standing
ovations. Carter appeared surprised at
the warmth of the reception, coming as
it did after almost a solid year of
bickering between the White House and
"I HAVE A partnership with you'"
Carter said, and added, "that partner-
ship is critical."
The occasion was a special meeting
of the DNC to elect John White of Texas
as the new party chairman, a man han-
dpicked by Carter to restore some
harmony and organization to the party.
But Carter's confessions and
promises went well beyond the fence
mending which has been going on in
recent weeks. At a White House
briefing later, Press Secretary Jody
Powell said the whole subject of ap-
proachment with the party had been the
subject of discussion at the White
CARTER FRANKLY acknowledged
he had neglected the party, a complaint
which had reached a chorus last year as
appointments and announcements af-
fecting local areas were made without
consultation with, and in some cases
even notice to, local party officials.
"I came to Washington for the first
time just about a year ago," Carter
began. "And we had a massive
program to propose, campaign com--
mitments to honor, a Congress for me
to learn about and a quizzical public
House to the Democratic National
Committee," he said. The president
then told the party leaders, "There are
some severe challenges that face us
with which I need your help."
CARTER MENTIONED the up-
coming vote on his Panama Canal
treaty, legislation on a national energy
program, tax reduction and reform, his
promisetd national urban policy and the
volatile farmer's revolt.
"There is a partnership here in which
you enjoy full participation," Carter
White, who supported Sen. Lloyd
Bentsen of Texas in the 1976
Democratic primaries before working
for Carter in the general election, was
named to the leadership post by ac-
about a newcomer to national politics
whom they really didn't know."
Carter said he spent hundreds of
hours in his first year as president
studying issues such as the Middle
East, arms limitations, and the
"AND I HAVE to admit to you that in
many instances I put those respon-
sibilities ahead of my responsibilities to
the Democratic National Committee,"
he said. "I don't think you've had the
support that was needed from the White
But Carter said he had finished his
homework now and would find it easier
to keep up with events.
"This year there'll be a much closer
allegiance and alliance from the White

"WHY DO THE HEATHEN RAGE?"
Psalms 2:1 and Acts 4:25
'Try the Sunday Times that way, kidk!'
Sixteen-year-old David Wierdsma delivers the Milwaukee Journal from the top of his head. As he walks down the
streets of his route, he just yanks the top paper off the stack, folds, and tosses.
This question is the opening words of The Second Psalm
of The Bible, God Almighty's Book revealing Himself to man.
"A heathen is one who does not believe in The God of The
Bible." Is that you? If so, we suggest you "Search The Scrip-
tures," asking God to reveal Himself to you personally. If you
do so in sincerity and promise obedience "in due season you
will reap, if you faint not."'
Consider the verses in the 1st Psalm just before the ques-
tion, "Why do the heathen rage" is asked: "Blessed Is the man
that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth
in the way of sinners,'nor sitteth In the seat of the scornful.
BUT HIS DELIGHT IS IN THE LAW OF THE LORD; AND IN
HIS LAW DOTH HE MEDITATE DAY AND NIGHT. AND HE
SHALL BE LIKE A TREE PLANTED BY THE RIVERS OF
WATER, THAT BRINGETH FORTH HIS FRUIT IN HIS
SEASON; HIS LEAF ALSO SHALL NOT WITHER; AND
WHATSOEVER HE DOETH SHALL PROSPER. THE
UNGODLY ARE NOT SO -"In these first two of the Psalms
God is saying again to man what He said by Moses: "Behold,
I set this day before you a blessing and a curse; A blessing, if
ye obey the commandments of The Lord your God, which I
command you this day; and a curse, If ye will not obey the
commandmentsof The Lord your God - I call heaven and
earth to record this day against you, that I -have set before
you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose
life, that both thou and thy seed may live." Deut.11:26-28 and
Consider this all of you who "delight in the Law of The
Lord," and may we suggest that you meditate upon the
following "day and night:" That respect and obedience to
God's Tenth Commandment would bring a blessing to our
land in quick order, and would do away with stealing,
cheating, swindling, and graft; and respect and obedience to
this Tenth Commandment would blot out race trouble,
strikes, and various and sundry other assortments of strife, ill
will, and devilment, for at the bottom of all these is
"COVETING." Maybe you don't know what God's Tenth
Commandment Is? Quote: "THOU SHALT NOT COVET
THY NEIGHBOR'S HOUSE, THOU SHALT NOT, COVET
THY NEIGHBOR'S WIFE, NOR HIS MANSERVANT, NOR
HIS MAIDSERVANT, NOR HIS OX, NOR HIS ASS, NOR
ANYTHING THAT IS THY NEIGHBOR'S."
We submit for your meditation that itlIs The Church's
business to teach men that "Coveteousness is idolatry," and
that no coveteous person hath inheritance in the Kingdom of
God, or in other words according to the plain and often
repeated teaching of The Bible they are lost and headed for
hell and damnation! We further dubmit for your meditation
that a genuine Christian is one who has entered into The
New Covenant with God, and The Spirit of God has written
Into his heart God's Commandments, Including this Tenth:
"Thou shalt not covet anything that is thy neighbor's".
Friend, maybe you need to go to an old-fashioned meeting
where you will have the opportunity to go up to the Altar,
kneel, pray, and ask God's people to pray for ydu for "Repen-
tance towards God, and faith towards The Lord Jesus

The biggest slap in the face is a new
theory by Paul Bakan, a Canadian
psychologist, which disputes the accep-
ted theory that left-handedness is a
genetically determined trait.
Bakan says he believes that left-
handedness is due to extremely slight
damage to the left side of the brain,
which controls language functions and
the ordinarily dominant right hand.
THIS DAMAGE IS common in
stressful births, which Bakan has found
to go hand-in-hand with left-
handedness. He maintains that almost
twice as many southpaw and ambidex-
trous subjects as righties reported
having stressful births.
Now that science has turned its back
on lefties, the only concession seems to
be the typewriter, whose most-used
keys are postioned on its left side-har-
dly sufficient consolation.
But with Gittleson's "The Left
Hand," lefties have a fighting chance to
lead a normal life amidst the blessed
right majority. Her catalogue can be
