AFTERMATH OF HURRICANE — Hardly a roofjs left intact along riverfront of hurricane- stricken Belize in British Honduras. Too Many Storms To Move Belize Off The Coast BELIZE, British Honduras (AP) —Twice destroyed by hurricanes in three decades, this capital of British Honduras will be moved inland 44 miles from the exposed Carribean Coast to higher ground. The government announcement came as the known death toll from Hurricane Hattie rose to 151, and many more bodies were feared buried in the mud and wreckage left by the storm Tuesday. The rising Belize River threatened floods in the city of 30,000, which bore the brunt of the 200- mile-an-hour winds and tidal waves that crashed in from the Caribbean. Belize counted 62 dead. An estimated 75 per cent of the buildings in the city were destroyed or damaged. The property devas- tation was greater than the 1931 hurricane that leveled the city and killed more than 2,000 persons. There were 38 dead reported in Stan Creek, 1 at Gale's Point, 29 on Turneffe and 14 on Cay Caulker. The latter two are small islands off the coast. Five persons were reported killed in neighboring Guatemala and two in Honduras. As far as could be determined amid the confusion, all the 200 Americans in British Honduras were safe. U.S. Consul Richard Geppert, who fled with his family just ahead of the storm, radioed from Cayo de San Ignacio that they were safe after being stranded al the Guatemala border by a blown out bridge. More Bikes BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — A heavy upswing in bicycles has wen noted in Birmingham. The city has sold about 800 bike license plates in recent weeks compared with 500 in the corresponding period last year. Sunday School Lesson Final Accounting By ROY L. SMITH The Uniform Sunday School lesson for Nov. 5: "GROWTH IN CHRISTIAN CONCERN," Matthew 25:31-46; Galatians 6:1-6. It might be interesting to compare the questions the average church asks of the one who comes seeking membership, with the questions we may expect to have to answer on the Judgment Day. This writer views with no little alarm the fact that the doctrine of h e Judgment Day has been almost dropped out of modern preach- It is t r u e SMITH that in former times the preachers and evangelists indulged in some highly colored emotionalism, in describing lakes of fire, and a wrathful God watching for a chance to destroy those of his children who happened to have sinned. And it is also true that the idea of the Judgment Day has been associated with some fantastic threats for which no man had any divine authority. But these vagaries should never be allowed to obscure the fact that for every man there is coming a final accounting. And in that accounting we will doubtless be surprised to discover that matters we considered marginal have become central. In this week's scripture Jesus gives us fair warning as to the nature of at least some of the questions we will have to answer in our final exams. And it is always dangerous to ignore any warning Jesus ever issued. If our Christian belief concerning Jesus means anything, it means that the son of Mary is our final authority on the subject of God. He declared on one occasion after another that he knew the mind of God, and that he shared the inner thinking and convictions of God. It will pay us, therefore, to sit down with Jesus' warnings, and study them with infinite care. Even a hurried reading of the New Testament reveals the fact that Jesus made few inquiries concerning the theologies of the people with whom he had to deal. Never once did he ask any man to make a list of the doctrines he believed, of the religious groups JFK Needles GOP, Wows Democrats By JACK BELL TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - President Kennedy wowed New Jersey Democrats Thursday night with a Republican-needling stump speech aimed at helping underdog Richard J. Hughes in the state's race for governor. Kennedy obviously enjoyed a two-hour respite from the burdens of the presidency as he put on the cap of party political leadership in an outdoor speech in the brisk November air to a rally of about 10,000 of the party faithful. This fell far short of the 50,000 throng that Hughes' supporters had hoped to assemble. The President flew to Trenton from New York City, where he gave a boost to Democratic Mayor Robert F. Wagner in the latter's race for reelection. Kennedy flew back to Washington after a brief reception with New Jersey Democratic leaders and a 10-minute speech for Hughes. In Trenton, Kennedy was in old campaign form as he told the cheering crowd that Hughes, opposed by Republican James P. Mitchell, had had "a long and uphill campaign." Mitchell generally is credited with leading in a contest that former President Dwight D. Eisenhower has said will have a direct bearing on Republican comeback efforts in Congress next year. With a note of sarcasm in his voice, the bare-headed President, wearing a business suit and no topcoat, told the chilled crowd that Hughes had been downgraded too much. "He has been written off on more front pages of more papers supporting other candidates than any candidate I know, with the possible exception of myself about 18 months ago," Kennedy said. Kennedy avoided any reference to Eisenhower, who has campaigned personally for Mitchell, who was labor secretary in his Cabinet. But if Democrats felt the President thus left any kind of political void, they had reasonable assurance that it would be filled with a scheduled appearance in Newark, N.J., tonight by former President Harry S. Truman. Not Used To Candy And Beds By HARY JUPITER SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - They shun beds and don't like candy. They're bright-eyed, immaculately scrubbed and behave themselves. They sing with the voices of angels. They're orphans, here to win your hearts. Six little boys and 26 girls, all between the ages of 8 and 12, are here from South Korea on a 40- city good-will tour of the United States and Canada. The children are members of CAP YOUR TIRES For Winter Done in Our Own Shop 12 Hour Service if Necessary Mud and Snow Caps Conventional Treads Sizes 14, 15, 16 Inch Caps Guaranteed to Stay GILLILAND'S Vulcanizing R. 4, Ottawa Recapping Ph. Centropolis C the World Vision Korean Orphan Choir. They represent 13,000 orphans in South Korea and sing songs of gratitude and love. Wide eyes grow wider as the youngsters travel America by bus, happily fulfilling a twin mission: Thanking Americans and Canadians who have contributed to 151 Korean institutions, and hoping for contributions to help construction of a 200-bed children's hospital near Seoul where free medical care will be given any orphan or needy child. Traveling with them are a nurse, dietician, tutor, and American and Korean chaperones. The aversion to candy and beds is, reasonable. The children simply aren't familiar with such luxuries. For a treat, they enjoy pickled vegetables. For sleeping, each has brought his own sleeping bag.

"Imagination Hits the Ceiling" with new concepts in acoustical ceiling tile and correlated floor tile designed by JOHNS - MANVILLE NUZMAN LUMBER 113 E. 1st CH 2-1572 with which he was affiliated, or of the religious practices he proposed to initiate within his life. Instead, he asked about their concerns — about the causes to which they stood ready to give their best and holiest efforts, about the needs they proposed to serve, about the wrongs they were ready to right. Just suppose, for a moment, that next Sunday morning when someone presents himself at the altar of your church, seeking membership, the pastor or some other proper authority were to ask the candidate the following questions: What wrong is there in this community which you propose to go out tomorrow morning to correct? What need is there in this town which you propose to begin serving before this day is done? What burden is there resting upon some tired shoulders in your neighborhood which you will try to lift before this day is done? What one of God's laws is this town breaking, and how will you help it come to its senses? What just cause is there within the radius of your knowledge which is suffering because of injustice, and do you propose to go out tomorrow as a friend of justice? What ignorance do you promise to dispel before another Sab- beth comes around? What evil word do you propose to silence before the week ends? What aspect of your life seems to be least acceptable to Jesus of Nazareth, and will you prom' ise to do all in your power to correct it, beginning from this moment? Do you promise to be chari table of those with whom you honestly disagree? Will you put as much service into every dollar as you propose to take out in the form of benefits? Do you believe your life can be up-graded, and are you ready to begin working at the task this very day? Leaves Many Descendants COALFIELD, Tenn.
