Fifty-Sixth Year




- I

IN CHRISTIAN and Jewish thinking doctrine,
historical perspective and traditional prac-
tice have taken the center of the stage. These
are important actors. However, if the play is
to go on some seemingly minor roles must be
well played. We refer to attitudes. Had Job
failed in his attitude toward God the doctrines
discussed, the historical experiences shared, and
the practices kept alive by his great family would

Taft's Disregard
OHIO'S infamous Senator Taft has protested
that the bill to provide terminal leave pay to
enlisted men is "an utterly unjustifiable ex-
penditure of a huge sum."
Such a shallow statement reflects clearly
that Senator Taft and his supporters have
neither an intimate contact with the situation
nor a sincere interest in the former enlisted
men who would receive this "huge sum."
The Senator's stupid assertion that " the GI
Bill of Rights provides 'liberal' treatment for for-
mer servicemen" is in direct conflict with the
attitudes of at least 12,000,000 veterans who be-
lieve that the terminal leave pay for enlisted
men is an unpaid obligation owed to them and
not a gift.
Officers automatically received this pay at the
time of their discharges and this discrimination
has long been a sore point with former enlisted
Senator Taft has obviously never spent a
couple years at some. God-forsaken outpost
where vacations were something that the folks
back home wrote and told you about.
The purpose of this bill is to pay the enlisted
men for the furloughs which they were not able
to take during the long months of active service
The terminal leave bill is one of the few
Legislative actions taken to remove the gross
inequalities between enlisted men and officers.
Congress is to be commended for its realistic
approach to this situation and Senator Taft
who has once again demonstrated a complete
disregard for the interests of people--let us
hope that Ohio's voters will remember his
attitude in November of 1950.

THE LONG VALLEY by John Steinbeck, The
World Publishing Co., Cleveland, 303 pages
T IS A PITY that a public which has given
such wide acclaim to Steinbeck, the novelist,
has never accorded him his due as a short story
writer. For those who have admired the superb
craftsmanship, the powerful economy of words,
the subtle emotional qualities of a Steinbeck
novel, The Long Valley will come as a brilliant
revelation of the author's similar talents as a
teller of tales. The book is a collection of fifteen
short stories, most of them set against the back-
ground of the Salinas Valley, and including the
three parts of his short masterpiece, Red Pony,
The collection is unique in that it emphasizes
the psychological angle of Steinbecks writing,
an angle which is never obliterated but often
overshadowed, in his longer works, by the
harsh reality of his situations and the intensity
of his drama. In The Snake, for instance, we
find a presentation of a peculiar sexual abnor-
mality., The White Quail analyses a marital
relationship between an average American
business man and a woman with a fantastic
imagination. Here, too, we find one of Stein-
beck's rare humor pieces, Saint Katy the
Virgin, which contains an unusually satiric
attack on the church and is full of a sym-
bolism somewhat foreign to Steinbeck's cus-
tomiary directness.
But there is much of the familiar Steinbeck
to be found, too, in such stories as: Red Pony,
Breakfast, which might almost be a chapter out
of Grapes of Wrath, and The Murder, which this
reviewer considers the best in the collection. All
of these exploit the author's familiarity with the
land and the simple, almost primitive people
who cultivate it.
1n a country whose authors, in general, have
never successfully captured its tone and tem-
perament, largely because they reach too high
and fall short of the mark, it is interesting to
note that Steinbeck, dealing with one type of
people in a single locale, has been able to give
us a far more adequate picture.

Delayed Highway
FOR MORE than four hundred centuries the
various peoples of Central America have been
faced with an apparently insurmountable wall
of isolation in their relations with each other.
An outstanding factor has been the lack of
transportation and road communication among
the chief cities Of these countries.
American intervention, in the guise of the U.S.
Public Roads Administration, has attempted to
overcome this obstacle since 1929 with a $23,-
000,000 backing of a highway running from our
southwest to the Canal Zone.
Now the P.R.A. has announced that the
highway will not be completed before 1949. A
broken link from Oazaca to the southern border
of Mexico and thick mountainous jungle areas
in Costa Rica and part of Panama make this
understandable. But the vast lists of possible
advances that a completed highway would ef-
fect - the revolutionizing of Central American
economy and a greatly increased intra-Central
American trade, to mention a very few --make
an "on time" (if not earlier) total completion
of the highway imperative.
-Joan de Carvajal

have died then and there. But having that at-
titude toward God in which he declared,
"Though He slay me yet will I trust Him," Job
and the drama of which he is the center goes
on its mission to the end of time. The attitudes
at times can far outweigh the facts, though facts
and attitudes are interdependent.
The extreme resistances of a few embittered
Nationalists in Palestine focus our attention
and world attention on attitudes. When the
Jews in their suffering react with prayer, in-
creased solidarity and reliance on God and ap-
peal to mankind, they can be understood. Also
they can win both the Jew and the Christian
to their cause. On that type of reaction their
minority-but 16,000,000 in the whole world-
at any time can claim a large percentage of
the 400 million Christians of the world. But
they can hold that support only when that
suffering is accompanied with the attitudes of
belief that right and justice will yet win, sensi-
tivity to the needs of others, faith in the
friendliness of the universe and trust in their
own future as a religious family. Jewish wor-
shippers of the past have taught mankind
these attitudes. Christian saints have joined
them in exalting those same attitudes. Let the
events arrest us. Let these two great religions
fail in the attitudes central to the Judao-
Christian world today and this tough, egoistic,
competitive and mechanical ciilization of the
west will either heedlessly blow itself to bits
in one generation or herd weakly to some
other religion for salvation.
Strange isn't it that the top scientists, ioining
the social science leaders and the religious lib-
erals are the most efficient exponents of mercy
and cling most tenaciously to the center of the
stage in our era? It is those top scientists who
combine in their own lives the three necessities
for salvation today and therein promise us our
chief certitude for world order tomorrow. (1)
They have the techniques peculiar to this age.
(2) They have an internationalism which ad-
mits no race lines, no national barriers and no
class distinctions. (3) They have a :noral and
spiritual responsibility which halts every mili-
tarist, turns back our Congressional Committees
and gives hope to every worried citizen. What
is it which distinguishesthem? It is the atti-
tude they portray. Call the roll: Anderson,
Urey, Condon, Shapley and the rest. These men
might fail in a very mild examination on theo-
logical doctrine. They would scarcely pass a
high school examination on the facts of Hebrew
history, the early Fathers or the Bible. They
might be found short on the religious practices
as to what should be eaten when and unable to
teach their children how any sacred event should
be celebrated. But they possess the attitudes
of love for fellow man, courage to stand by an
ideal of orderly peace, intellect to choose a
humanitarian goal and the soul to fear power
for its own sake.-,
Every student will do well to consider Prof.
Ernest F. Barker of the Physics Department
when he declares modestly that ancient re-
ligious truth that "The kind of world we will
have will be determined less by how much
scientific information we acquire than by the
kind of individuals we are." And then he
added, "It is that task of educators to impart
not only information but also moral discrim-
ination so that students may use their po-
tentially dangerous scientific information for
proper purposes."
Now these constitute only the minimum de-
mands of a religion. They are, however, the
minor actors without which the vast drama of
our new world order can never proceed to a
resolution of either the problem of evil or the
riddle of ultimate communication between
finite and Infinite,
With R. Southey man does well to pray:
Lord, who art merciful as well as just
Incline Thine ear to me, a child of dust.
Four things which are in Thy treasury
I lay before Thee, Lord, with this petition:
My nothingness, my wants, my sin and my

The Turks Look West
The Turkish-elections are interesting because
they represent a choice of the Western form of
democracy on the part of a Russian border

state. The Turks have experienced something
like the Soviet brand of democracy for twenty-
five years and they have had enough of it . . .
The important fact is that opposition has at
last been recognized in Turkey. The decision
to hold free elections came from the Govern-
ment party itself..-.

End of a Policy


According to a recent article by an American
correspondent in Brazil, definite changes in
United States policy towards South America
have been noted. These changes have been both
welcome and unwelcome to the Latin Americans.
The statement by Ambassador William D.
Pawley that "the Santa Claus era is definitely
over," has created a favorable feeling on the
part of the people themselves, but their govern-
ments are not so pleased.
Whatever the varying emotions such a declar-
ation may bring, it is an indication that America
has ceased to carry on its benevolent imperial-
ism program in order to impress the South
American and other countries with the purity
of our intentions.
Despite the avowedly unselfish aims of the
American government, American businessmen
have certainly exploited the South American
countries to the best of their ability. Even gov-
ernment spending produced an undesirable ef-
fect on Latin American trade. Countries would
not bother to develop their resources when the
United States government was willing to pitch
