Suit challenging the constitutionality of the act was brought by the city of Dearborn, which contended primarily that the turnpike law violated municipalities' control over their streets and alleys. The court said it interpreted the law to mean thc authority wny ne puts must obtain consent of municipalities to change their category, except that and alleys in existence and on that basis the toll mt' tllink of those humans law was constitutional. P'1 '-heir finite strength against Validation of the turnpike act means that in bonds for the 113-mile Saginaw-Rockwood toll road will be sold within GO days, but it removes obstacles holding up other toll roads within Michigan. A Detroit-Chicago expressway is one of the bigger proj- ects on the drawing boards and George N. Higgins, Turnpike Authority chairman, has announced that as soon as bonds are sold "we'll start on the Detroit-Chicago pay-as-you-go... Dovner mem o, road authorized in the act." He said he will ask Slate High- way 01' 'he other, way Commissioner Charles M.

It has prac- tieally destroyed the industry of Lakes Michi- gan and Huron, and now is invading Lake Erie A conference of fishing experts from the United States and Canada will discuss the problem on Dec. 12 at Purdue University in Indiana.

All things were made by him; ?.nd with- out him was not anything made that was made. In him was life- and the life was the light of men'. And the light shineth in "No one in Russia enjoys immun- ity from criticisim by the press." This whopper was told by Boris Kampov-Polevoy, head of a visit- ing Russian delegation, in un inter- view. Some one must have asked him if Russian newspapers ever prised at those neckties clio. criticize Stalin. He from Snnta. Aftei there simply do not seem to have been any occasion for criticism."

LECTERN FOR FATHER Elderly brother and sister came to see the minuter in the old -uid A fellow really shouldn't be he gels who never wears a red suit? may despise religion in any of its forms but what can an atheist or an agnostic have to say against a dog? I turned to my dog, Joe, a beau- tiful Kceshond, who is willing to share a New York apartment with us, and I read him Mr. WhitnuU's paragraph but he understood not a word of it. any more than 1 did. He blinked his eyes and looked very wise, as though to say: "What fools tlie.se mortals I agreed with him. In another paragraph, Whitnall writes: These men (founding fa- thers) intended to create a gov- ernment and society which would free tin- minds and souls of men forever from the horrors of tradi- tional eccle.siastici.5in." What has "traditional eccles- iasticism" to do with the religious outgiving of the human soul? Ec- clesiasticism has to do with the gov- ernment of churches which is no more than setting up the rules and regulations of a club or a cor- poration. Religion is the acceptance who governs the cosmos and all that is therein and whom men wor- ship and to whom they pray. Ii's amazing the day by day im- provement in youngsters' behavior: In the Judaic-Christian culture, out of this relationship of man to God has come the natural law by which men conduct themselves be- cause it i.s light so to do. A philos- ophic mind must take a distinction between the natural law and man- made laws. For instance, man in various legislatures may pass a what kind ofjlnw regarding the size of sheets on ot from a fellow bed in a hotel.

SMITk PRAYING TO A PERSONAL GOD MONDAY Read Psalm 120 Some-ONE will hear. The second assumption follows logically upon the first. If we are praying to some-ONE and not to some-THLNG, then we have a right to assume that some-ONE hears. Personalities are able to communicate with one another. There may be barriers of language, distance, and experience which make U difficult for two persons to un- derstand one another's language, but at least on some level they can reach an understanding, It may be only a gesture but it conveys an idea, and the passing on of idea from one personality to another Is the beginning of knowledge.

But we do not cease eating because we cannot understand the mystery by which a plain meal finally emerges as the so- lution of an intellectual problem.

Senate antimonopoly subcommittee pursuing what Chairman Kefauver (D-Teun) has called "a criminal side" to the abandoned Dixon- Yates power contract called gov- ernment officials for questioning today. Among the witnesses scheduled for the public hearing were Adm. Lewis L. Strauss, chairman of the Atomic Energy commission. and Rowland Hughes, director of the budget bureau. Both agencies played a key part in framing the contract for a priv- ate steam plant at West Memphis, Ark., to feed power into the Ten- nessee Valley Authority (TV A) system to replace TV A power need- ed for atomic installations. The contract for the 107 million dollar power plant, negotiated by the AEC with the Dixon-Yates utility group at President Eisen- hower's direction, was canceled after the City of Memphis, Tenn., a major TVA customer, announced it would build its own power plant. Last .month Strauss announced that the AEC had repudiated the contract a decision which meant the AEC would make no cancel- lation payments. The decision was based on a legal opinion that "there is a substantial question as to whether there were material vio- lations by law find public policy Di.xon-Yates said it would ooa- test the decision in the courts.
