Speaking of Kennedy, Archbishop Cooke said, "Gifted by nature to a rare degree, he might have sought a life less ar- dous, a manner of life that left more time for personal interest and for the enjoyment of the wo'nderful family with which Go'd blessed him. '.'Instead he chose the broader, more demanding challenge of public service, seeing it as an opportunity to build a better wijrld for all his fellowmen. He died in the course of that serv- icl" The final blessing over the sealed Kennedy casket will be (Continued from Page 1) assassinate my. reputation." He said he was having trouble finding employment. Returning to the State Police report, Murton called it a "fraud" and "another piece of mythology." Coy D.

"The whole thing is like a report that flying saucers are as were stationed in and around the cathedral for pooled television coverage by the three networks-just as they televised the services for President Kennedy. •The eldest son of Sen. Kennedy and his last surviving brother were among the pallbearers —Sen. Edward M. Kennedy of Massachusetts and Joseph Kennedy III, 15. bther pallbearers were U.S. Ambassador W.

BRAIN ^(Continued from Page One) ceived," Dr. James L. Poppen of the Lahey Clinic said Friday. ""I saw him at about 10 a.m., an hour or so after the operation," the doctor said. "I knew it was fatal then and I prayed he would die." He said some who were close to Kennedy when he was shot early Wednesday say they heard him say, "Water," but ''I'm surprised he was even able to say that." The senator died more than 25 hours after being shot, Poppen said, from "overwhelming, irreversible damage to the pons and midbrain," two narrow but vital communications pathways next to each other deep in the center of the brain. All the vital information exchanged between major parts of the brain must pass through them, including tie data that specialists in brain research be lieve is linked with controlling consciousness, heart rate, blood pressure, and all the body's automatic processes. By 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, about IB hours after he was shot in a narrow passageway at a Los Angeles hotel, Kennedy met the legal requirement for death —his brain waves could not be recorded on a special machine, Poppen said. He said a slim hope remained, however, because the waves "sometimes fade out and come back," and shortly afterwards Kennedy's "pulse and heart rate actually improved for a time," But the brain waves did not revive, the senator's kidneys and other vital organs shui down, and finally his hear stopped beating, Poppen said, we _ WARNING ORDER In the Chancery Court, Chickasawba District, Mississippi County, Arkansas.

'Frank Moffett, who acts as a legal aid for the regional OEO in Austin, Tex., concurred by saying that Mississippi County had acted within its legal rights to maintain its program independent of other counties and could legajly refuse to serve as the administrating agent for any other county's poverty program," Jumper said. "The resolution by the county board resulted in their recommendation that neither Poinsett nor Craighead County should be denied any poverty funds to which they are entitled but because of the legal stumbling block within the Mississippi County agency's by - laws, the poverty funds now held by the Mississippi-County-agency will be diverted to the welfare offices in both Poinsett and Craighead County for distribution through those offices." ating.

THE PROMISES OF GOD The reader of the Old Testament soon becomes familiar with the marvelous promises that are made there. The careful student soon realizes that these promises have to do with the one central idea Uiat flows all the way through the divine Word—the expectation of Messiah- King who would bear rule over a world of men that He himself has converted to God. , As the pages of the Old Testament are turned, one reads of a time to come when the entire flow of satanic evil will be overwhelmed by a greater flow of righteousness from the one who is the seed of the woman (Gen. 3:15). He goes on to read of i time when all the earth will remember and be turned to the Lord (Psa. 22:27); when all the earth will fear 1he Lord and all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him (Psa. 33:8); when the meek shall inherit the earth and delight themselves in the abundance of peace (Psa. 37:11); when wars will cease and God will be exalted among the nations (Psa. 46:810); when God will judge the peoples righteously and govern the nations upon the earth (Psa. 67:3-4); when the world will be established so that it cannot be disrupted (Psa. 96:10); when nations will beat their swords into plowshares and turn all instruments of destruction into instruments of peace (Isa. 2:4); when the.eyes of the blind will be opened and the ears of the deaf be unstopped; when the lame will leap as a hart and the tongue of the dumb sing (Isa. 35:5,6); when the glory of the Lord shall be revealed and all flesh see it together (Isa. 40:5); when God will fulfill His great promise to Israel to seek them out, and bring them out from all the peoples and ill countries and bring them to their own land (Eze. 34:11-24). These are but a part of the marvelous promises that God has made through the prophets ot Israel. .These promises embrace all. nations, they promise special and unique blessings for Israel, they concern the earth, they promise salvation for the world, for the nations, for Israel, and for the individual. However, all the way through them .is found the strain that every one of them will be fulfilled by one designated by God. This One would be God's anointed One, the Christ, the Messiah. It would be through Him that divine government is to be established, not only in Israel, but in every nation, even the entire earth. See Isa. 9:6,7. •'• It is my firm, belief that Jesus of Nauretii is the Messiah, Ihit is, the Christ. All -these promises are to be fulfilled through Him. He alone is the One who can bring Messianic times upon the earth. Otis Q. Sellers This Is mesiiii No. 38 in our Nswspiptr Eviniclism Pro|Ht.
