But when we serve man in man's name, we will tend to serve in pride, in conceit, in hatred, in anger." So stated Mrs. Clare Booths Lace, convert author and former Congresswoman, in her address at the Creighton University com- mencement ,here. "The humanitarian who does not earn humility in the worship of God will always come as an 'ex- pert' to the aid of the inefficient or misfits; as a rich man lavishing gifts on the destitute; as an 'an- si.areal' character, as a 'prophet' de- termined to show the way--his way--to the misguided or stupid; as a judge over th~ wilful or stub- born; and in the .nd, he will re- main as the executor of those who refuse to be saved according to his )ersonal plan for salvation," she declared. "A British M. P. started a broad- cast recently," Mrs. Luce contin- ued, "with the astounding remark: 'The broadest distinction in poll- ties is between those who believe in Original Si~', and those who don't.' Those who do believe in fallen nature, agree that political progress~like all progress in hu- man affairs--is not inevitable, not irreversible. They really believe that eternal vigilance is the price of liberty." "But--what is more important-- they know what to be vigilant about: the dangers of greed, avarice, selfishness, wastefulness, dishonesty, sloth and cruelty, in leaders and citizens alike," she said. "They were never deceived, and tre certainly not to be deceived to- day, in the fourth year of the atomic bomb, into thinking that scientific or material progress must inevitbaly result in a happier, more peaceful race of men," Mrs. l~uce stated. "They know that if man takes his eye off the target-- the restoration of his fallen nature ,in God, for a moment, he can lose FURNITURE in a few years all the ground Fire, C~orl.m Waa~l.w !gained in centuries." !Dionne Quints Mark dP 14th Year At Mass eneva , By Ottawa Prelate " I C o r b e i 1, 0 n t.--(NC)--The I I~e~ a~eva t4a 716 w. stetett, liDionne Quintuplets observed their I m..
