FRIDAY, DECEMBER 27, 1968 THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS 5— A AP Newsfeatures Writer aoii B. Johnson, 60, in his last ytfer as President, has been nlmed ^newsmaker of 1968 by editors of Associated Press ^tiiiber newspapers and radio am r television stations. Although his decision not to S for the presidency again biggest newsmaking ifetjejmeht, Johnson had plenty other headlines to his credit. i!h; July, 57 nations signed the Jioriproliferation •< of nuclear Weapons treaty at tlie White fibtise, '. which the President caJUed the most important dis- arifiament v 'accord since the giawh of the nuclear age. He pledged the U.S. to honor its Committments in Asia, met with South Vietnam President Thieu itii Honolulu. He announced Vietnam" peace talks, to start in May, a bombing halt in North Vietnam on Oct. 31, and expanded peace talks, adding South Vietnam and the National Liberation y Front, in December. LB J, proposed a tax on foreign travel, which was not imposed 1 , and a surtax on income taxes, which was. He denounced the causes of violence. He nominated Abe Fortas for chief justice, withdrew his name after a Senate; filibuster. In October'his second 1 grandchild, Lucirida Robb, was born. LJ3J invited his successor, Richard: M. Nixon, to the White House to begin the handing over of presidential power. Alexander Dubcek, 47, who gave Czechoslovakia a "spring" of - democratized Communism, brought a national spirit to flower and became his country's hero, was the editors' choice as lakei* Of Year LYNDON B. JOHNSON foreign newsmaker. Dubcek became head of the Czech Communist Party in January and instituted sweeping reforms—free speech, giving the people a voice in politics, turning the economy to incentives and Western trade. Dubcek met with disapproving Soviet leaders in Cierna July 29 and in Bratislava Aug. 2 and emerged with his reform politics apparently intact But Soviet tanks and troops invaded his country Aug. 20, captured him and took,him to Moscow. -o- -o- -o- he travels a great deal urging the' acceptance of transplants, and is the operation's best- known spokesman. He says the operational technique is mastered; it's usually infection which kills patients now. Dr. Barnard believes that if any mechanical device can be transplanted into a human and work inplace of an organ, it would be in place of the heart. Henry Ford II, 51, chairman of the Ford Motor Co., this year became chairman of the National Alliance of Businessmen, seeking jobs for hard-core unemployed in 50 big-city slums. The organization found jobs for 60,000 and its objective is 100,000 hard-core unemployed working by mid-1969 and 500,000 by mid- 1971. Ford said, "People must! ENTERTAINMENT ROWAN AND MARTIN -O- -Oi -o- Louis in the seventh' Cherry Street Church of Christ CHARLES D. CROSIER, Minister SPIRITUAL RESOLUTIONS During the next few days,, many will be making .-• what they call 'New Year R'sfcolufions'. It is always right to try to do better and to'break bad habits of the past. However, I wonder how many of tfhese resoultions will have to do with spiritual growth and development? God has been much better to us during the past year than we have been to Him. In view of all of the blessings he has jgiven us during the past year, don't you think He ought to be a part of our plans for 1969? I am going to list three general resolutions and I hop's'you will add others .fo.your list. I WILL LOVE GOD MORE DURING THE NEW YEAR. Jesus said: "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind." (Matt. 22:37). Genuin's-love for God. is more than 'lip service'. The world is filled with those who claim to love God. Jesus said: "This pfeople draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me." (Matt. 15:8). Jesus sets forth the real test of love in John 14:14, 21> "If ye love me, ktfep my commandments." "He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will manifest myself to him." Therefore, it is not difficult to see that those who really love God will do what he commands. I WILL STUDY THE BIBLE MORE IN 1969: Paul admonished Timothy to, "Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman mat needethTiot to be ashamed, rrghtly dividing trfe.word of truth." (2 Tim. 2:15). One- 'Cannot be approved in God's sight if he does not study fhe Bible. We also need to know how to rightly divide the,Bible. Jesus divided the Old Testament into ths "law of Moses, the prophets, and the psalms." (Luke 24:44). Bible scholars are agreed that the Nsfw Testament can- be divided as follows: Books of Biography, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Acts gives tfhe History of the fiord's Church, how people became Christians in the first dsVitury. The Epistles are letters written to churuches and individuals telling them how to live the Christian life. The-Book of Revelation tells of the eternal home of the Soul. When one reads tb'e/ Bible wim these divisions in mind, they'll be able to obtain a better understanding. I WILL OBEY HIS COMMANDMENTS: James said: "But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, dedsWing your ownselves." (Jas. 1:22). There are many who hear sermons, read the Bible occasionally, but still refuse to be obedient to the commands of Christ. They argue that certain commands are not essential and r&- ject the ones they do not want to obey. Solomon said: "Fear God, and keep his commandmenrs, for this is the whole duty of man." (Ecc. 12:13). "Though he were a son, yet learned he OBEDIENCE by the things which he suffered; and being made perfect, he became th's' author of eternal salvation unto all them that OBEY Him." (Heb. 5:8-9). V- As we enter the New Year, we wish for you health, happiness and prosperity and above all that you will Love God, study His Word daily and be Obedient to •;His commandments. Dubcek was sent back to his country, presumably because his popularity could be used. He asked his countrymen to help him rule with occupation troops in Czechoslovakia and to accept the end of the season of liberalism, in order to prevent bloodshed and to hasten troop withdrawal. He tried to preserve a few reforms and stood staunchest against secret police arrests. WOMAN OF THE YEAR JACQUELINE KENNEDY ONASSIS Other newsmakers in The Associated Press poll are: Dr. Christiaan Barnard, science; Henry Ford II, business; Albert Shanker, labor; Pope Paul VI, religion;"Denny 'McLain, sports; Rowan and Martin, entertainment; William Styron, literature, and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis", woman newsmaker. Dr. Christiaan Barnard, 45, of Cape Town, South Africa, performed the first human heart transplant operation in December 1967 and the most successful such operation to date on Jan. 2. Dentist Dr. Philip Blaiberg, who received a new heart Jan. 2, left the hospital in March, has survived liver and lung maladies during the year and currently is leading a normal life. Although Dr. Barnard hasn't done the most heart transplants, WILLIAM STYRON be given a chance to earn a decent living." Ford also is active in the Urban Coalition, which seeks solutions to urban problems. In February there were rumoi's that he would be offered the top federal antipoverty pbst; in September he turned down appointment as a U.S. delegate to the U.N. Albert Shanker, 40, leader of New York City's United Federation of Teachers, led a city-wide teachers strike that kept 1.1 million children out of school for seven weeks in the worst education tieup in the nation's history. New York, which has had one big school district,, set up three experimental small districts with limited local control. One of these, predominantly Negro, transferred 10 teachers out and- refused to take back the 10 or SCIENCE DR. CHRISTIAAN BARNARD Flu Cold And No Fuel Oil In New York Homes ALBERT SHANKER WIRING Residential, Commercial, Indus'rinl Harris Electric Co. 248-S777 or 242-1184 NEW YORK (AP) - Bitter cold weather and a lack of fuel oii combined with a mounting flu outbreak to make Christmas rriserable for thousands of New Yorkers who shivered and sniffled in unheated apartments. The city's health commissioner. Dr. Edward O'Rourke, appealed to Mayor John V. Lindsay today to urge the oil industry to speed up emergency fuel deliveries. The temperature at 5 a.m. was 13 degrees above zero. . "Despite the heavy number, of calls received from seriously ill persons living in unheated apartments," an O'Rourke spokesman said. "less than 25 p^r cent of the required amount of emergency fuel oil deliveries were made during the day"— Wednesday. "The city received 2,432 heat, 1 complaints in one 12-hour period j Wednesday, in addition to 377 j similar complaints from ill persons over a 14-hour period. Bloodbank supplies, mean ! while, were reported "danger-' ously low" because of illness of both potential donors and blood- bank personnel. the 100 who walked' out in pro-test. ! The union, representing most 1 of the city's 60,000 teachers, j struck—fearing that decentrali- 1 z'ation of school districts was j being used for union busting and! that Negro-controlled districts would transfer white teachers out and promote Negroes. School finally started, seven weeks late, with 33 decentralized districts in a plan to last only through this school year. Shanker wants his union to have to deal with 15 districts at the most. Pope Paul VI, 71, in July issued a 38-page encyclical "Hu- manae Vitae," reaffirming the ban of the Roman Catholic Church on artificial contraception, and a big noisy debatft started within the-church. Theret were statements from priests' Is! and laymen protesting the" encyclical and calls from bishops and the Pope himself to accept and obey. For their public disagreement, some priests in Australia, Ireland, England and the U.S. were suspended from some or all of their offices. The debate continues, widen- i's f"' orn .-^recment or disagreement with tiie use of artificial birth control to discussions of individual conscience and the nature of Papal authority. Denny McLain, 24, of the Detroit Tigers, is the first baseball pitcher in 37 years to win 31 games. McLain lost only six games in helping the Tigers to their first American League pennant in 23 years. He lost two games in the World Series to Bob Gibson but his 13-1 victory in the sixth game extended • the classic to seven games.'' Detroit beat St, game. Dan Rowan and Dick Martin, both 46, have made "Laugh-In" the year's biggest -TV hit. Using the idea of "cartoon, humor," the quick visual picture, and the oneline joke, it's a manic-paced show with slapstick;- fast skits, non seqititur and racy lines. And it's got a lot of people in the country saying, "Sock me." William Slyrbn, 43, won the Pulitizer Prize for fiction this year for "The Confessions of Nat Turner." The ' novel, pub- j lished last year after five years in the writing, is based on a pamphlet supposedly dictated by, Turner, a slave, and published in 1831. It tells of his being goaded beyond endurance and leading 60 Negroes for two days across the Virginia Tidewater, slaughtering every white person they found. Styron wrote it in the first person, trying to see and tell it through the eyes of a black man.. Jacqueline. Kennedy, 39, widow since .1963, -abruptly ended months of speculation about a possible romance with' Lord Harlech, 50, with the announcement Oct. 17 that she would marry Aristotle Onassis, 62. Her wedding to the multimillionaire owner of ships and airplanes was on Oct. 20 in a whitewashed chapel on Scorpios, Onassis's private Greek Island.
