California Boys Carry Yodels to Switzerland By ROBERT RICHARDS NKA Special (Correspondent CAUX, Swilzerlnnd (NEA)— There's a yodel ringing out in Switzerland these days that has everyone listening and smiling— from Robert Schuman, ex-premier of France, to thousands of so- called little people from all over the world. But this is no Swiss yodel. It comes from the good old U.S.A., right out of Los Angeles, imported into Switzerland by three young men who bill themselves as the Colwcll Brothers. The brothers are Paul, 18; Steve, 20, and Ralph, 16. They arc the sons of Mr. and Mrs. W. Paul Colwell of Los Angeles. Colwcll Sr. is a food broker. Paul plays the mandolin and banjo. Steve plays the guitar. Ralph, who is smallest, plays the big bass fiddle. And they sing mountain music. "Wc were doing well back in California," said Paul. "And we were very ambitious to do better. For the past two years wc have YANKKK YODLERS IN SWITZERLAND: Left to right, Paul, Ralph and Steve Colwcll.

"Some Sunday," he said, "I'm going to go to Church and see if it makes any difference in my life." "Doctor," we asked (for he had a number of degrees), "How does a chemist begin his experiments in a new field?" "With research," came the reply. "He studies the findings of other men in that field—determines what has been proven—what is unknown." "That's a good way to begin your experiment with religion" we suggested. "It would hardly be 'scientific' to judge Christianity, or your need for it, on the basis of one visit to Church. But a few months of faithful attendance, and many thoughtful evenings with the Bible will give you a clear understanding of what others have found in Christianity. You'll discover spiritual truths which centuries of experience have proven, and gain a faith that can bridge the Unknown." At last report, our chemist was making fine progress in his experiment. In fact, he no longer thinks of his religion as experimental! THE CHURCH FOR ALL... ALL FOR THE CHURCH The Church is the greatest factor on •arth lor (he building of character and good citizenship. It is a storehouse of spiritual value*. Without a strong Church, neither democracy nor civilization can survive. There are four sound reasons why every person should attend services regularly and support the Church. They are: (1) For his own sake. (2) For his children's sate. (3) For the sake o! his community and nation. (4) For the sake of the Church itself, which needs his moral and materia! support. Plan to go to church regularly and read your Bible daily. « , Book Monday... "***** I K'«t?l Tuesday Pialma WtdneadayAmoa Thursday Jonah Friday Jonah Saturday r uk « ' "** -Lulct Copyrifhl 196S.
