Deitz, West Salem lay leader; Howard Summers, Trinity trustee; Mrs. Earl Quinn, Trinity secretary; Dr. Donald L. Lowe, Vandalia district superintendent; Rev. Leroy E. Dude, West Salem pastor; Rev.

Cold Wave Grips Nation B.v THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Bone-chilling cold gripped nearly two-thirds of the nation today, its bito compounded by gale-force winds arid heavy snows in parts of the Northeast. The cold wave, which broke out of (lie northwest early in the week and drove temperatures to their lowest marks of the season throughout the midcontinent completed a cross-country t.veep and dropped the mercury near or below zero in the North tast. A hard freeze hiit Georgia and Alabama and frost nipped northern Florida. The Weather Bureau expected temperatures to dive to zero or below in portions of 30 states from the northern Rockies to New England and southward to North Carolina. Biting winds drove the bitter cold onto the Eastern Seaboard. Heavy squalls along the eastern shores of Lakes Erie and Ontario dumped deep snows into portions of upstate New York, J Pennsylvania and New Engi land. J Fourteen inches of snow fell ; on the northern New York community of Boonville throughout Now Year's Day to give the area a total accumulation of -10 inches. Six inches blanketed Erie, Pa., and heavier amounts rai.ged into northern New England. The snows combined with heavy wind cut visibility and forced closing of Erie International Airport late Wednesday. But the cold didn't deter six m-.mbers of the Erie Skimlivers Club who chopped a hole in the i.ake Erie ice and jumped into 33 degree waters. "It was a whole lot colder on the dock than in the water," remarked Don Herrick after the icy dip. Falling temperatures and rising winds forced postponement Wednesday of the annual Mummers Parade at Philadelphia. Tne parade, featuring 16,000 costumed marchers, was rescheduled for Saturday. The arctic weather and snow s so meant an extended holiday vacation for many school children in northern lower Michigan where ?0 school districts announced there would be no c'asses for the remainder of the week. Travelers warnings remained in effect for northern portions of Oregon due to a treacherous combination of freezing rain t-r.d sleet. Much of the region was buried under heavy snows earlier in the week. I-iain dampened other sections cf the northern Pacific coast and snow dusted portions of the n terior to the Rockies. Comfortable weather continued difficult to come by. Clear but cool conditions prevailed in southern Florida and California. Temperatures before dawn ranged from 13 below zero at Havre, Mont., to 67 at Key West, Fla. ONE TO SPARE NEW DELHI (AP) — Even engineers are superstitious. The Delhi government asked engineers to build 13 spurs across the Jumuna River to prevent soil erosion. But 14 spurs were built, because 13 is an unlucky number. Nixon Led Over 500,000 Votes WASHINGTON (AP) - Corrected popular vote returns from the Nov. 5 presidential election put President-elect Nixon's lead over Democrat Hubert H. Humphrey at slightly more than half a million votes. Rcchccks of totals from six states increased Nixon's vote to 31,770,222. compared with a total for Humphrey of 31.f 7,74-1, an edge for the Republican candidate ot 502,478. Most of the changes from the figures carried earlier this month by The Associated Press were verv small, but the rechecks added 2,291 votes to Humphrey's total in Alabama, while subtracting 5,000 votes from his earlier total in Oklahoma. The recheck left the total Tor third jarly nominee George C. Wallace at 9.897,141. Another 240,593 votes were cast for other candidates. The total number of ballots cast in the presidential election WHS 73,175,700, a new record. Dr. Lowe presided over the special meeting at which the congregations voted to unite their strength to better serve the community. The new church will be called West Salem Trinity United Methodist. The present building of the West Salem church will be used by the new congregation for all •activities for the present. A fine spirit of unanimity prevailed as terms of union, prepared by a joint committee for this purpose, were presented. These proposals* were discussed and, in some cases, amended before adoption. The Trinity church was organized here 70 years ago. It was first located on south Tenth street and was known as the First United Brethren in Christ. In 1946 a denominational union made it the First Evangelical United Brethren church. The union which created the United Methodist church necessitated another change in names to avoid duplication. Several names were considered and the name "Trinity" adopted. Rev. Orville B. Silvey has been pastor since July 1, 1967 when the church joined with Bluford and Oakdale to form a three point parish. The West Salem church has served this area 117 years, since 1851. It was first called Salem, but the formation of a congregation of another denomination bearing this name led to the addition of the word "West" in the name. The church was originally located in the cemetery. In 1871 the present property was deeded to the church by the Bullock family. The building on this site was erected in 1873. After a fire in 1959 there was extensive remodeling. Rev. Leroy Dude will continue to serve as senior pastor. Rev. Orville B. Silvey will serve in an associate relationship for the present. MT.
