. B, OH ·OX yei, they're »H lumped. The juicps wocldn't ttkk so I put one inside each envelope." FOR KFAELEHS 5-irIiriiife Religion by Truckloud LOUISVILLE tfl -- Th« tun was warn, the drinks coot College students from throughout the nation crowd td the beach. Then a truck appeared, beiring t group of men. They began a show of music and talk. The punch line was Christian guidance. The speakers wore no clerical collars; the leader was an athlete as were some of his companions. THEIR SAFARI on the sands was the "Djytoru.
