Sale of TWA to be final today By The Associated Press DALLAS — Tlie sale of TWA to American Airlines is expected to close today after potential obstacles to the deal were removed last week. AIVIR Corp., American's parent, was expected to pay $742 million for TWA and assume $3.5 billion in debt pending a U.S. Bankruptcy Court's approval. On Friday, a U.S. District judge denied a request by TWA creditors to delay the sale. FROM PAGE A1 "It will show information that people just don't know,'' IVliller said. "Did you know that 168,000 Christians are killed every year? That's more than in Biblical times." Music also will play a big part in the production. Part of the 25-person cast is an eight- piece band. Pianist Ryan IVIc- Call was composing the music Sunday afternoon. Hinca rehearsed his role of Tom White on Sunday. White, a man who distributed Bibles, was imprisoned in Cuba in 1979 after his plane filled with Bibles crashed on the island nation. Because of his cargo, White was detained by the Communist government. When he was T WEATHER Minnesota, prepare for National Guard called in to help after Red River rises to 16 feet By The Associated Press National Guard soldiers helped pile sandbags Sunday as rivers fed by melting snow and rain rose quickly in IVIinnesota and the Dakotas. The focus of attention Sunday was the Red River, which flows northward between North Dakota and IMinnesota and caused devastating flooding four years ago in Grand Forks, N.D. Guard soldiers helped with security, rescues and evacuations at Breckenridge, Minn., where the river was at 16 feet and expected-to crest at 19 feet during the middle of the week. Flood stage is 10 feet but the city is protected by a system of dikes and pumps. South of Breckenridge, troops stacked sandbags at the tiny town of Dumont, as the Lake Traverse reservoir rose toward the town. "What 1 am hearing is that the effort really saved the town," said National Guard Lt. Col. Denny Shields. On the North Dakota side of the Red River, Fargo Mayor Bruce Furness put the city's flood-protection plans into high gear Sunday and said work would begin immediately on an earthen dike to keep the river but of downtown. The goal was to build the dike high enough to protect Fargo against 36 feet of water, the crest the National Weather Service forecast. Flood stage is 17 feet and the river was at just over 27 feet Sunday night. Grand Forks officials issued a new flood warning Sunday afternoon as the Red River rose thrown in a cold cell with no food, he started singing "Jesus Loves Me." His Communist captors asked him why. "I'm singing because I love Jesus," Hinca, as White, said. -They threaten torture. "Why can't they see that they're in more of a prison than I am?" he asked God. Other stories of strong Christian faith will focus on Sudanese children killed by Islamic soldiers because they wouldn't renounce Jesus. And an Oklahoma City bombing victim will be healed of her bitterness. The play also will tell the story of Jesus and his disciples. It will close with the crucifixion and resurrection. Miller said the plays bring in big crowds, and five perfor­ mances are needed. "It's really for the whole city as a way to reach out to everyone," Miller said. The offering collected will be donated to a local charity. Last year, the money was given to the Salvation Army.
