Phone 693 421-425 South Federal Ave. DORAN OPPOSED TO BLUE LAWS Favors Repeal of Sunday Prohibitions but Wars on Divorce. DES MOINES, (JP)—Senator L. H. Doran (E) of Boone can't see anything wrong in golf on Sunday, but he does see a lot wrong in divorce. Which explains why Senator Doran during the first week of the forty-seventh general assembly fiied a bill which would penalize movie theaters which show pictures in which divorced actors play; another which would increase the penalty for wilful failure of a divorced husband to pay support money to his former wife or* children and a third which, in effect, would repeal Iowa's Sunday blue laws. The first he doesn't expect to see passed, but he has hopes for the other two. Father of Three. . "I'm' the father of three children, all less than 18," the senator explained. "I don't think it does a young mind any good to see pictures of movie stars who've been divorced time and again, and I believe there are many parents who agree with me." Doran said he introduced the other divorce bill at the. suggestion of several judges. It increases the penalty from one to 30 days in jail. His Sunday blue law bill provides that a $100 fine be assessed against anyone who disturbs Sunday worship. Not a Reformer. But it also repeals various sections of the code, which a study of the code disclosed include laws prohibiting carrying of firearms, dancing, hunting, shooting, horse racing, buying or selling property, or any labor except of necessity or charity on Sunday. "I'm no reformer," said the senator, "and everyone knows these prohibitions aren't enforced. If they aren't enforced they shouldn't be in the statutes." Transmitter for Local Station Inspecting the new transmitter at K3LO is Sidney Davis, chief engineer for the radio station which opens Sunday, Jan. 17. To the rear of Mr. Davis is the frequency monitor and control Califomian Hanged for Wife's Murder SAN QUENTIN, Cal., (#)—Louis R. Shaver, 53, formerly nf Troy, N.

MANILA, (UP)—Fire, Chinese uprisings, earthquakes, typhoons, British troops and time have scarred the 18 principal Catholic churches in Manila and vicinity but most of them are being remodeled or repaired in preparation for the thirty-third International Eucharastic congress, Feb. 3-7. Several of these structures were built in the seventeenth century and six of them have been destroyed and rebuilt from two to five times. Their history is virtually the history of the Philippines since Magellan's discovery of the islands in 1521. In the vestry of the Church of San Augustin, which was damaged in the British occupation of Manila in 1762, the terms of the American occupation of the city were signed in 1898. In the chapel lie the bones of Miguel Lopez de Legaspi. the first Spanish governor of the Philippines. The church, the oldest in the Philippines, contains mural decorations done 70 years ago by the Italian painter Alveroni. One Church All Iron The tireless Recollect Fathers brought the all-iron church of San Sebastian in parts from Belgium. Built on a high stone platform, it has 12 European stained glass windows, depicting the ^fe of Christ from the Annunciation to the Resurrection. The Recollect Fathers built their church, the 'second oldest in the Philippines, in the Bagumbayan district near Manila bay in 1606. Two years later, they built their first church in the old walled city of Manila, where the present church of the Recoletos is the third on the same site. Chaos resulting from the Chinese uprising of 1639 halted construction of the Church of Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage, located in the village of Antipolo, a shrine to which thousands of pilgrims travel several miles outside the city to visit each May It was damaged slightly by flames during the Chinese uprising and , was destroyed twice by earth| quakes.' ' I When Commodore George Dew- I ay's fleet was battering Manila in i 1898, thousands of Catholics knelt I in the Capuchin church and pray- i ed for safety. Catholic history says of the building: "At the same time when almost all Manila churches were being turned into military quarters, the Capuchin fathers were inaugurating their new church, at the altar of which stands—a promise of peace and well-being—the enchanting image of the Virgin of Lourdes." Pay Homajfc to Statue Fire which destroyed the Church of Quiapo about a decade ago, left the life-size Black Christ image unharmed. Each Friday hundreds of devout pay homage to the statue, brought from Mexico 300 years ago, and once each year it is carried through the streets at night, when hundreds jostle for an opportunity to kiss its feet. Architects and art lovers think the Greco-Roman Jesuit Church of San Ignacio, built in 1889, is the *city's finest Tourists frequently visit the building to see the carvings and paintings done by an artist who is said to have been stricken blind, following completion of the work. In the chapei are inscribed the names of Jesuit fathers who died in the Philippines. In the 200 year eld chapel of the Franciscan church, fourth of a series of structures which began as a native nipa house, is a reclining figure of Christ The artist who carved it, legend says, died immediately after the work was finished-- Honest Man Rises Early.
