Gordon said the county audits show "the sheriff has accounted fo_r every dime.'' '•Even if you conceive that the sheriff has not properly accounted, it is probably only about $500, or at most $1,100," Gordon said.

I couldn't do anything. I just stood there and watched. Then I saw a city ice and fuel boat come and pick them up." "I looked up and the bridge was gone," said Todd Mayes, a French teacher at the Kyger Creek (Ohio) High School, who normally crosses the bridge at 5 o'clock daily. Returning to his home here, Mayes stopped Friday to buy a can of touchup paint for his car and a traffic ight held him up on the bridge ramp on the Ohio side. The four dead men at Holzer Hospital were identified as George McManus of Soutliside, W. Va.; Cecil Counts and Melvin Cantrell of Galiipolis Ferry, W.Va., and Leo Blackman of Petersburg, Va. Cantrell's 35-year-old wife was in the car with her husband and Counts, but she jumped and landed on the muddy bank. She was treated for shock. sion, and tightened meat inspection laws. But Congress declined to pass Johnson's proposed 10 per cent income tax surcharge, his major anticrime bill, his civil rights proposals, his gun-conlrol legislation, his election reform bill, or his "truth in lending" proposal. Some of the President's recommendations attracted such little support that he did not push for action on them. They included measures to liberalize trade with Communist nations and to merge the labor and commerce departments. Most legislators agreed that unhappiness over the war caused many of the administration's problems at the Capitol. This became clear early in the year when Johnson's budget revealed that many programs, such as school aid, were being financed far below the authorized amounts because of the military demands. The President's big problems on his program came in the House, where Republicans had 47 more members than in the preceding Congress. Debates on war policy consumed many hours.

Tree Buried at Sea LOS ANGELES (AP) - The U.S. government buried Mayor Samuel W. Yorty's olive tree at sea. The tree, due to arrive today aboard the Greek liner MTS Jason, was a gift of the Greek port of Piraeus which serves Athens. The gift celebrated the maiden voyage of the Jason to Los Angeles harbor. Nearing the U.S. shore, however, the ship's officers dumped the tree overboard at the re- uest of the U.S. Deparlmnt o! Agriculture. A spokesman said the agency feared a worm-like organism, the Golden Nematode, known to infect the Greek olive trees.

DIVINE INTERVENTION IMPENDING The great truth that God is going to intervene in the affairs of mankind is one that is founded upon many statements in the Word of God. See Psalms 9:8, 19, 20; 22:27, 28, 46:6, 9; 67:4 as examples. History records many instances where one nation has invaded another, occupied its territory, assumed sovereignty over its people, and established its own order in the conquered land. This, in modern times, has been done by highly trained forces using tanks, planes, guns and all other means known to modern warfare. When God invades the earth, He is not going to do it this way. He will not send His Son from heaven accompanied by the armies of heaven in order to subject His enemies. It will all be done by His Spirit. He will invade the earth, occupy the earth, assume sovereignty over it, and establish His own order upon it, all by the Spirit of God. When this is done, the kingdom (government) of God will be 3 reality upon the earth. Go'd's long display of grace will have come to an end and a dispensation of divine government will come in. Men will yet know what it is to live in a world that is complelely governed by God. It is evident from the Bible that God invades the earth, assumes sovereignty, and establishes His order in a time when nations are in distress, and in a time of.unusual iniquity. It is at a time when nations are in turmoil and when every government is shaking that the Lord speaks from heaven and makes wars cease to the ends of the earth. This is the truth revealed in Psalm 46:4-10 when it is properly translated and interpreted. It is a time when there is a conspiracy of evil men, an insurrection of the workers of iniquity that God acts and they are wounded with the arrow of His Word. This is the message of Psalm 64. The time is now ripe for such divine action. We are told in Psalm 92:7 that when the wicked spring up like the grass, and when all the workers of iniquity do flourish, it leads to them being put out of commission forever. The very thought of this leads me to pray: Arise, 0 Gorl, plead Thine own ciuse: remember how the foolish man re- ptoachtth Thee daily. Forget not the voice of Thine enemies: the tumult of those that rise up against Thee increaseth continually. Psilm 74:22, 23. It is.when the enemy comes in like a flood that the Spirit of the Lord lilts up a standard against him. (Isa. 59:19). It is at a lime when darkness covers the earth and thick darkness the peoples that God will again speak from heaven and say, "Let there be light." (Isa. 60:2). The time is now ripe for divine intervention. It is impending. Watch for it! Wait for it! It is our hope! May God speed the day. Otis Q. Sellers.
