By Vivian Scott Hixson
WHY, after all those years in graduate school, and the scholarships granted by my more hopeful advisors, did I turn out so many cartoons, and so few contributions to social science research? ANSWER: If you show someone your serious research, you will get back pages and pages of advice as to how you could and should revise it. This will happen even if that someone likes what you have produced. In contrast, if you show someone a cartoon, and he/she likes it, you will get a laugh. And if the recipient thinks the cartoon is pointless crap, you will never know. The psychological advantages are obvious. WHAT are the cartoons good for? ANSWER: with luck, comic relief. And,as in the case of the first collection, they can be used to lighten the mood of a commitee meeting, focus a discussion, or make a textbook more appealing. For those who have some such purpose in mind, the cartoons have been arranged in specific categories. (See "A Quick Guide to the Cartoons".) WHO should get credit for inspiring these cartoons? ANSWER: almost everybody I've ever called a friend, but especially William B. Hixson,Jr., Professor of History at Michigan State University, my husband/companion for many, many years. Thank you all!

By Captain E.R. Walt
On a pleasant Monday evening in September of 1969, twenty-six year-old Johnny Lee Thomas excused himself from his family’s dinner table, picked up a pump shotgun and announced that he was going hunting—alone. Seconds later he stepped out of his house and shot sixteen-year-old Aljewel Wesley in the face as she sat on her own front porch listening to records with her boyfriend and grandmother. That was but the first shot in what would shortly become the biggest gunbattle in the 130 year history of the Dallas Police Department. Johnny Thomas continued to shoot at neighbors, friends, family members and passing motorists until the police arrived, at which point he ambushed and shot the first three officers on the scene. He then retreated to his house and held off an assault by a hundred or more determined police officers in a furious firefight that lasted more than an hour and involved hundreds if not thousands of rounds fired. Before the incident ended, ten persons would be shot, including four police officers and a TV cameraman; two would be killed, including the shooter himself. Authored by a participant and based upon official police documents, original newspaper articles and personal interviews with forty six of the hundred or so officers present, the book details the gunbattle from the first shot to the final barrage of gunfire that ended the shooter’s life and brought it to a close. It includes a listing of sixty-seven Dallas officers known to have been combatants or otherwise involved in the incident and details their location and participation as far as it is known. Also included is an analysis of the factors that contributed to the spectacular nature of the incident from departmental policies, procedures, equipment and tactics to the culture and tenor of the times. Chapters are also dedicated to the firearms used in the battle and an analysis of exactly who, among the many officers involved, was responsible for putting an end to Thomas’s rampage—something that was never addressed in the original investigation. The concluding chapters cover the aftermath of the gunbattle from the neighborhood riots and arson fires to the truncated investigation and include a brief history of the Dallas Police Department’s Tactical Division and the fundamental changes in the operation of that unit that were brought about by the affair on Hall Street. The book closes with an epilogue bringing the reader up to date on the major players in the drama.

“The clear, sweet notes of taps, played by our camp bugler, reached me above the distant rumble of thunder reverberating through the surrounding pine-covered hills and across the lake. Night had fallen. In the cabins our young charges were tucked safely into their bunks. That is, all but Damian Abbott. Where was he? During the twenty-four years since my husband, John, and I had founded Camp Cedarcliff, we’d called physicians, hospitals, local and county sheriffs, and the Poison Control Center on various emergencies. But, this was different. Damian was missing. He had to be found and brought back to camp before his father learned of his disappearance.”

By Robert C. Hereth
It started at a party where Hereth's friends were laughing at how short the sound bites for TV programs had become. The thought occurred, could a brief "sound bite" highlight one facet of faith, anchor it in Scripture, and dress it with realistic examples from everyday life? Sound Bites us Faith for Us of Little Faith answers yes. Like the facets of a diamond, each facet of faith shines in its own significance and also illuminates other facets to light our way. Then Hereth's hard-headed realism adds heat to the fire. No pious platitudes here. Not only was Hereth highly sensitive to the pain and doubts of the persons in his congregations for 40 years, he himself often groped for some glint of the faith that seemed to come so naturally to others. But along the way he learned that his own wrestling, rather than hindering his people, often helped them the most. Jesus sometimes lamented, "Oh you of little faith." Hereth identifies with that rebuke, but he takes heart in how Jesus brings faltering persons to God who is big enough for those of little faith. This emboldens Hereth to present the struggle for faith with all its uncertainties, missteps, and questions that in the end make us rely totally on a Big God--not on our little faith--which is exactly where those of little faith belong. Hereth's first section, "Facets of Faith," leads beyond a nodding acquaintance with creeds to risk trying to "walk on the water" with Jesus. We become sensitized that there is an unseen power in life. We come to know that power as our Heavenly Father, as Jesus reveals. We venture in trust in the unconditional love of God, base our hope in God, and make our decisions for God. In all this we struggle with just how much of what is happening is because of us and how much is because of God. With humility we accept that uncertainty will always be lurking, and we walk by faith alone. Hereth's second section, "The Fruitful Life of Faith," focuses on how faith, which is trust when turned to God, becomes love when turned toward fellow human beings. It's a special kind of love that in Jesus's words can "love your enemies." It's a love that does what is needed to help even when we may not "like" whom we are helping. It is often done at our cost. But that makes it a powerful love that is exactly what is needed in our complex world where we must choose between two goods or two wrongs. Rather than serve up easy answers, Hereth struggles for a love powerful enough to act when there are no easy answers. Above all it is a love from beyond us, working through us, enabling us to do what we alone could not do. We learn thankfulness and therefore contentment; we learn to pray, to forgive, to obey, to praise--all fruits of faith. However, along the way our faith will be tested by our personal weaknesses, our daunting world, and a wily tempter. In his third section Hereth faces doubt, challenges, confounding questions with which he continues to struggle that often become more urgent as faith becomes more important. Unanswered prayers, a divided church, challenges by modern science, personal and global tragedies which wring from our hearts the question, "why," the death of loved ones, our own death are only some of the questions Hereth confronts. Hereth's total identification with us and his trust in our Big God makes him a great guide for us of little faith.

By Nickell John Romjue
Merry Town, Missouri, 1945 - 1948, A Novel is a portrait of a Midwestern town in the transformed world of post-World War II America. It is about Andy Roan, a Missouri congressman of rare human insight into people and events, and Johnston Roan, his young grandson, through whose close companionship Merry's history and Southern roots and its economic, political, religious and social life are portrayed, together with themes related to the World War II veterans who came home to begin life in the new world of post-1945. Meriwether Lewis and President Harry Truman appear in this humorously serious family novel marked by unusual, unexpected mystery events--the strange visitation of a mysterious frontier figure, a fabulous engagement between intruding buffalo and a militarized herd of mules, two returning veterans and a violent animal stud-champion clash, a congressional race involving a looted German art trove, a crop-circle mystery and a credulous editor, the disastrous outcome of a Civil War cantata, the Missouri Bethel Colony and a young musician genius, the mystery of a soldier-veteran's prescience and his foretelling of the accidental death of a famous American general, and the morning of life of a German girl-artist war bride. This novel was written to present a time picture of a Missouri small town in the brief span of years from 1945 to 1948. That time between two eras marked the end of the Second World War and the beginning of the long Cold War that the United States and its allies would wage to contain the worldwide revolutionary drive for power of the Soviet Union--a conflict that would dominate the international world as well as the lives of Missourians and all Americans through most of the remainder of the 20th century. Merry Town, Missouri is a young boy's story, told in that historical frame, in rumination, about his love for his grandfather. It is based on an original series of nine related short stories centered on mystery, dramatic, and humorous events that occur in the town. The incidents shown are fictional, but the characters are modelled closely on the family of the author, here named the Roans, all of whom took seriously life in the world of the postwar 1940s and all of whom had a sense of humor. Any resemblance of the other characters in this novel, human or animal, to actual persons or creatures living or dead, lacks all credibility.
