He "thai act of genocide that Yankee imperialism is committing" in Vietnam. He also mentioned U.S. policy elsewhere in Asia, Africa and Latin America and charged: "There is not a single infamous cause in the world lhat imperialism does not support, as there is not a single just cause thai imperialism docs not combat." guerrilla band led by Guevara. \ 'The economy of Europe is Bolivian President Rene Bar- rienlos has suggested Bolivia might consider exchanging him for Huber Matos, a former revolutionary who broke with Castro and has been a prisoner in Cuba since 1959. Caslro set forth his terms for an exchange Friday night in a two-hour speech in which he de- scibed the United Slates as "a truly universal enemy whose altitude threatens the entire world" and whose "policy reminds us today of (lie policy of Hitler, the ads of barbarism of Nazism." The speech, among Castro's most strongly anti-American pronouncements, closed the nine-day Havana cultural congress of more than 400 leftist intellectuals from 70 countries. A former comrade-in-arms o Castro, Guevara was slain b' Bolivian soldiers in October. Of fieials said (he body was ere mated. Castro said Cuba's ene mies fear Guevara "more deac than alive." If Barrientos wants Cuban prisoners freed, Castro said "We say to him: produce the remains of Maj. Guevara and we will free them immediately. Castro said the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency or the Pentagon could select the Cuban prisoners to be freed. He made no mention of Malos. As for Debray, the prime minister said he was "sure Debray would never accept such an exchange." He praised the writer's attilude.

Miss Tuegel, or "Cricket" as she prefers to be called, is being held as a material witness in the murders of Daniel Schoultz, 18, of Bloomfield, Ind., and James Moore, 18, of San Ansel- 1 innocent. She calls her jail ceil a "bad trip," but it's not her first. She passes the time with crayons and a child's coloring book—but the high school dropout also quotes from Shakespeare anc Abraham Lincoln. Miss Tuegel says she has collected an assortment of jail terms since she left Seattle, Wash., three years ago because she says her family rejected her. 'I hardly ever spent more than a couple of days in jail," she says. "I just batted my big }lue eyes and told them I was ' Ca ' if - Despite her 175 pounds dis- lu - Tne two youths were found itributed over a S-foot-9 frame, ficiated. Burial was in Mt.

TIBETAN STUDIES HERE HAVERFORD, Pa. (AP) - A Tibetan who became a monk at 13 and fled from Tibet a few years later when the Chinese took over the country in 1959, she makes money by working as a go-go dancer. Her clothes are the hippie fashion—tight pants, boots, a shirt, plastic beads and rings. "I own a dress I've won three times. I bought it when a boy friend wanted me to be a lady," she says. She dislikes clothes worn by nonhippies, who she calls "straight" or "plastic people." Miss Tuegel wears a cat's collar around her wrist. Two bells on it signify her "true loves," Hayden and her current boy friend who is in a New Orleans jail on an assortment of charges. She doesn't know the New Orleans boy's last name. Six metal knobs on the collar signify the times she thought she was in love. Asked whether she feared for ler safety during her hitchhik- lippies tribes, she replied: 'Hell, no. If you act like a lady, ou'll be treated like one." George Blaylock George Blaylock, 62, died Friday morning at Chickasawba Hospital.

FOUR GREAT DAYS 4 Tfie period of time in which-a person is prominent is usually called his day. Four such days are set forth in Scripture, and the understanding of these will help greatly in comprehending the meaning of the Bible. It brings nothing but confusion to take what belongs to one day and attribute it to another. The four great days in Scripture provide a broad outline of the order of events when we consider things present and things to come. Let us consider these in their chronological order. •THE DAY OF MAN. This is the time in which we now live, a time in which man is having his unhindered day. Its title is found in the original language of I Cor. 4:3. It began when Noah emerged from the ark and human government became a reality upon the earth. During man's day all nations are permitted to walk after .their own ways (Acts 14:16). It reaches its greatest height in the present dispensation of grace when all punishment for sin is in abeyance, and God continues to be gracious in spite of all that man does against Him. Man's day will come to a sudden end when God invades the earth by His Spirit, assumes .sovereignty over all men and all nations, and'sets up His own government upon the earth. See Isa. 59:19; Psa. 22:27,28; Psa. 67:4. • THE DAY OF CHRIST. This title is found in Phil. 2:16. It begins With the unveiling of Jesus Christ and His manifestation to the world. It is the day when He will have His way with the world and with all men .upon'the earth. It is dominated by the fact that the glory of the Lord has been revealed and all flesh has seen it simultaneously (Isa. 40:5). It is the day of the manifest kingdom of God. We have reasons to be- lisve that it will be seven hundred years in length. THE DAY OF THE LORD. This is the day .that "comes as a thief .in the night" (I Thess. 5:2). No single event will announceits beginning: The great tribulation, the second coming of Jesus Christ, the long period of His personal presence, all take place .in this day. It is at least a thousand years in length. Every event, without exception, predicted in the Book of Revelation takes place in this period of time. It is not next in order, and great confusion of thoughts has resulted from attempts to advance it in time. THE DAY OF GOD. This title is found in 2 Peter 3:12. The truth concerning it is set forth in Revelation 21. It is the day when the center of God's activities (His tabernacle) will be with men, and He will dwell with them. The planet earth will then become the mediatorial planet in relationship to God's program for the universe. Otis Q. Sellers. This is a message, in our Newspapsr. Evangelism Project.
