Would a World
Government Solve
Our Difficulties?
By Claries D. Rowe
The world is marching with ter
rifying speed into a third world
war. And if that horrible possi
bility is permitted to fall upon the
nations of the earth, it will mean
the virtual destruction of mankind.
Another world conflagration will
not be primarily a contest of ex
plosives. Instead it will be fought
with poisons and disease germs,
carried into the contending nations
by guided missiles.
Organizations such as the League
of Nations and the United Nations
have always proved futile when
put to the final test of maintaining
peace. There have been thousands
of them during mankind's history
and they have always failed.
Such was the gloomy picture
placed before his audience by Dr.
Vernon Nash, a representative of
United World Federalists, while lec
turing before a gathering of the
Libby P. T. A. on Wednesday of
last week. While Dr. Nash's message
could be considered highly dis
couraging, yet he had a more cheer
ful thought, a solution to stave off
the world-destruction that is speed
ing so rapidly toward us as he
thinks. It is a world federation,
a combining of all the nations of
the world into a super-government,
into whose hands would be placed
the maintaining of world peace and
the handling of all international af
fairs.
This is a proposal that has been
much discussed

world. Such a world-government

lowing lines;
It would have a police force
strong enough to enforce peace.
It must be able to raise revenue
by taxation.
It must have a system of courts
and a co

It must control the atom bomb
and all heavy weapons. National
armies must be only large enough
to maintain peace within each na
tion's borders.
It must be a limited government,
with no power to interfere with any
nation's internal affairs.
It must have a constitution, pro
visions for amendment, and no
power of veto by any nation.
Whether or not this is another
Utopian dream that will never be
realized remains to be seen. There
are tremendous obstacles against
such a proposition. On the other
hand, if such a world-government

CURSE OR BLESSING—WHICH?
The people who physically
brought Jesus Christ to the Roman
court and demanded His crucifixion
were willing to assume the full re
sponsibility for their crime. They
shouted frantically: "His blood be
on us and on our children."
In their case these words were a
curse; for they were an invitation
to God to deal with them according
to their actions. But upon the lips
of uncounted millions since that day
these words have been a fervent
"His blood be on us and
prayer:
on our children."
The central messoge of the
Christian Gospel is redemption by
the blood of Jesus Christ. His
blood, the Scriptures tell us, was
the ransom price which won com
plete forgiveness for all mankind.
Again and again the sacred writers
speak of the blood of the Son of
God as the price paid for our sal
vation.
"The blood of Jesus Christ, His
Son, cleanseth us from all sin," says
John. "Ye were redeemed by the
precious blood of Christ," writes
Peter. "In Whom we have redemp
tion through His blood," exclaims
Paul. And Christ Himself, in one
of the most solemn moments of
His life, said: "This is My blood,
which is shed for the remission of
sms.
In other words, the man who has
found his redemption in the blood
of Christ, is assured of complete
forgiveness of all his sins. To him
the blood of Christ has spelled the
difference between an eternity in
hell and an eternity in heaven.
Small wonder then that Christians
of all ages have prayed: "His blood
be on us and on our children."
No man could crave a greater bless
ing. And we invite you cordially!
to share this blessing with us.—ST. I !

In a world congress, based on
population, what would happen .o
the United States? We might find
ourselves a small minority at the
mercy of the rest of the hungry
and covetous world. And we could
not help ourselves. As was wisely
said at the Libby meeting by Mr.
Rolseth, a congress based on popu
lation would turn the world over
to the Asiatics.
Furthermore, what would happen
if our borders were thrown open
to unrestricted immigration? Mil

News Notes From
Co. Agent's Office
By B. F. Robinson
Farmers planning to seed irri
gated pastures this spring should
look carefully into their needs be
fore buying seed.
By and large the old Huntley
pasture mix has been one of the
best we have ever had. It's been
tested and proved satisfactory and
good stands have been obtained.
Lately, however, we've found that
T adino «"lover should probably re
olace White clover. There have
been other modifications tried, in-1
eluding getting rid of Kentucky
bluegrass, but we can't recommend
them yet.
This reformed Huntley mix in
eludes Sommoth brome grass at the
rate of three or four pounds per
acre, Kentucky bluegrass four to
six pounds. Orchard grass four to,
six. Meadow fescue three to four,
Alsike one to two and Ladino one
to two pounds per acre,
For simpler mixes, Dr. R. E. Stitt,
' TT S D. A. Agronomist suggests
that brome grass and alfalfa seed
may be used or an Orchard grass
ana Ladino mixture. He points out
though, that their limitations should
be noted. The brome grass-alfalfa
mix is good for only about three
or four years because alfalfa will
go out of the stand. In addition it
must be grazed in rotation. It j
should grow about 20 inches, then |
graze off rapidly and allowed to I
recover. |
The Orchard grass and Ladino
mix is restricted by the danger of
Orchard grass winter killing. Gen
erally it should be safe in the win
ter wheat area.
Seeding rates on these simpler
mixtures should be about fifteen
ipunds of brome grass to three of
alfalfa in this mix. About ten Or
chard grass to two of Ladino will
probably give best results with this
mixture. This proportion of le
gumes should please livestock men
because of lessened bloat hazard.
