TUESDAY, Al'HIL 23, 11)40 Kentucky Ben Declared lo Curb Freedom 01 Worship HARLAN, Ky., April '» (UPJ- Membcrs of (lie Little pine Mountain Chiiicl) of God on Laurel Branch have announced that will fight in the courts for the right to use snnkc.s in llicir religious services. The Kentucky legislature reteiit- ly passed a law making It unlawful, to "display, handle or use a sjiakc or reptile in connection with a religious service or Bather- ing." The act, which wilt become effective June 12, provides a fine ol 550 to $100 for violation.. The use of snakes at, church !>erviccx has been fairly common nnioni; certain .seek in the eastern Kentucky mountain region Their handling is regarded by members an it test of faith. New Testament Quoted The belief that snake bile cannot linnn (lie faithful Is based upon this quotation from the 18th verse of the IClli chapter of St. Mark: "They sliull take up scrpcnU;; and if they drink any deadly lliing, it shall not Hurt them. ..." The quotation was from Jesus' speech to his disciples after his resurrection. George Washington Henslcy 0 ! Hnrlan, railroad conductor and pnrt-timc preacher at the Little fine Mountain church, 18 miles north of Hnrlan, regards (he legislature's act as an expression of intolerance. Henslcy said that "the Constitution isn't like it used to be B iv- inn a man the right to worship" as lie pleases but. at the same time letting legislatures pass laws against it. it wouldn't, surprise me Jf (he courts uphold the legislature but, we are going to give them a chance just the same.'' Loophole in I.aiv Seen Church members pointed out a loophole in the anti-snake law passed by (he legislature. H does not. prevent them from using strychnine or other poisons in the ritual. "The law doesn't say anything againsi us testing our faith by poison,' which WHS successfully demonstrated oiie Sunday night at services," Henslcy said. "Brother Bradley Shell took a large dose of strychnine powders about c o'clock We stayed with him .until n-:io and mere was no bad 'effect' on him because of his faith." Shell is a Pine Mountain ttm- bcniiail. JLMHEVILLB (ARK.)

The church was victorious in Harlan county court two years ago when some of Us members were charged with endangering the lives of other members by handling snakes Judge Cam. E.

Taft's explanation that he stayed out of the race because the bosses were lined up for Dewey was true enough, what he didn't add was that the bosses could have been lined no for Tafl; the Dewcy peo- le just naturally got to them first Maryland's G.O.P. has a factional fight between cx-Gov.

They didn't want a presidential primary contest muddying Ihe waters, and after the Dewcy people got Ihem lined^up they begged Taft to slay the ma„ -— primary anyhow and that there was no sense getting in a family row. But>if .staying out of a party row iost Taft a delegation in Maryland, it apparently won him occ in West Virginia. Neither Taft nor Dcwey has entered tlie primary there, but out. Hc complied, figurtn. chines would swin« the" simply give him a dime and hurry on. Anyway, Ihesc polls convinced Mic Taft people that they could win if there was a contest, but they didn't want a contest if they could help it because there was an inside-the-parly.scrap on for slale control. So, in tlie end, Ihcy made out Imin; papers and entrusted them lo a West Virginia G.O.t'. bigwig with Imtructloiu not to file them unless Dewey ijlcd. ff.-aawhile, the Dcwey group was tying the situation and likewise decided the scrap was a good one to stay out of if possible. So Ihcy, loo, "made out filing papers and left iiiem lo be entered only if Taft, tiled.
