PAGE 6 THE TIPTON DAILY TRIBUNE Friday, April 16, 1965 Religion in America 'RV LOUIS CASSELS i guesses about death. j By LOUIS CASSELS United Press International "What'happens when I die?" Man is the only creature 'who asks that question. But he asks it very insistently. It has bothered him since the dawn of human history. It is perhaps the most basic question he asks of any religion or philosophy which professes to help him comprehend the meaning of his existence. There are four possible answers, and each of them has many adherents. One theory is that death is the end of the line for human beings, as for other organisms. Life simply e'eases to exist and the indefinable essence which constitutes a human personality is swallowed jp by nothingness. This is what (nillions 01 secular- j t is not a "mod-"! is one of the old- 1 est, if not th^ oldest, of man's ' ists believe, ern" idea. It guesses about death, Soul Is Imperishable Also of great antiquity is the belief that man has! a soul which is imperishable by its very nature. At death, this immortal part of every human being is liberated from the physical body which undergoes corruption. This is what Plato, Scorates and other Greek pWl- osophers believed. Their view is held today by many who "mistakenly regard it as a Christian concept. . A third hypothesis is that a sou! may inhabit a succession of physical bodies — animal or human. When one body dies, the soul is "reincarnated" or reborn in another body. This is the teaching of the great Oriental relgions, Hinduism and Buddhism. It should be noted that both of them look '.upon reincarnation as a fate to be avoided if possible. The best thing that can happen to a soul, they believe, is to be released from the cycle of rebirth, to cease to exist as a separate entity and be absorbed into' the "oversoul" of Infinite Being "like a drop of water disappearing into the sea." Christian Viewpoint Finally, there is the view point which Christians will proclaim at Easter services Sunday morning. It is summarized in the ; Apostles' Creed by the words: "I believe in. •. .the resurrection of the body: and the life everlasting." I theory, it is the most widely professed of the four attitudes; in fact, it is the most widely misunderstood Contrary to widespread im pression, Christianity does not go along with the Greek phil osophers in drawing a sharp distinction between soul and body. It looks upon the human personality as an integrated whole. That is what the Apostles' Creed means by "ressur- rection of the body." Christians have never thought that exist PRICED RIGHT 1964 CHRYSLER 300 K 2 Door Hard Top Sharp 1064 PLYMOUTH Fury Convertible 1964 F \IRLANE FORD 4 Door Sedan V8 Straight Stick i 1963 FORD 300 4 Door Sedan 6 Straight- Stick 1963 PLYMOUTH Fury Convertible 1963 NORTON Motorcycle 1963 FlAIRLANE FORD 2 Door Sedan r 1963 FtVIRLANE FORD 4 Door Sedan | ! | 1961 CHEVROLET Impala Convertible ' 1961 C [IEVROLET Impala 4 Door Hard Top 1 j 1961 DODGE 4 Door Sedan j 1961 FORD Falcon Slation Wagon 1961 FORD Convertible 1961 OLDSMOBILE Dynamic 88 4 Door Hard Top 1 ! i I960 DODGE 2 Door Hard Top I960 OLDSMOBILE Dynamic 88 4 Door Hard Top I 1960 FORD 2 Door Hard Top j 1960 FORD Convertible j j 1960 CHEVROLET 4 Door Hard Top j 1960 PLYMOUTH 4 Door Sedan I SEVERAL NICE '57 - '58 -j '59 MODELS j j CLYDE OVEHDORF MOTORS Inc. STATE ROAD 28 EAST TIPTON—OS 5-7426 ing physical bodies would be restored after death. St. Paul scouted that idea 20 centuries ago with the scornful remark that "flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God." The post-resurrection body, he said, will be a. "glorified" and "imperishable" one. In short, Christianity asserts that what is essential in a person's humanity — the core of his being as a unique individual — will, not perish at death but will enter into a new dimension of life beyond the categories of time and space. Christianity has never claimed that its viewpoint is the most plausible of the four. Christian belief in life after death is based not on logic but on an event. Twenty centuries ago, on the first Good Friday, the disciples of Jesus Christ saw 'Him crucified, dead and buried. Three days later, on the first Easter, they saw him alive again. Their eyewitness testimony has bden rejected by many people, in every generation from then until now. As Prof. William Hordern of Garrett Biblical Institute pointed out recently, these skeptics refuse to consider the historical evidence for the resurrection, because they have made up their minds in advance that it couldn't have happened. Others in every generation have found the testimony convincing. And their initial act of faith in the truthfulness of the disciples' story has been corroborated, they feel, by their own experience of the Christ who can still be encountered at work in the world, not as a memory, but as a living presence.

By ED MISURELL WHEN MOST people achieve status In the theater, art, business, or professional worlds, they relish their good reputations. Their- degree of appreciation varies, naturally, but all glow with pride if they are known as a "most talented," "most imaginative," "most astute", or "nfost brilliant" person in their own particular field. Diminutive Eileen Fulton, a pretty, vivacious actress who has been appearing for some years as Lisa Hughes in CBS- TV's long-running soap opera, is no different. She enjoys a reputation as a professionally fine performer, but actually delights in a far more dubious distinction. Because of her realistic portrayal of Lisa—a nagging, selfish wife—she has been dubbed by viewers "the most hated girl in daytime TV." * * * "WHY shouldn't I like it," said Eileen smilingly, as she sat in a CBS office in New York the other day. "Playing Lisa week after week has helped me greatly in learning more about my craft. Since the show is done live, it gives you that extra zip you have to have to keep on your toes. You just can't let yourself get sloppy. You'd know if you did immediately—the 'hate' mail would drop off. "Playing Lisa for the past five years has also paid me a very good living. It has kept me well fed and well clothed and will also pay the rent on the new apartment I'm moving into in Lincoln Towers. It is on the top floor and has a magnificent view that looks out over the world. * * * "BUT most of all," Eileen enthused, "it has led to a starring role in the new, twice-weekly version of 'As the World Turns' which makes its debut in prime TV time on Wednesday, May 5, at 9:30 p.m. "I'm really very excited about it. We'll have a completely new story line. Lisa will play an unmarried woman in this version. As a single person she will have much more range and • can be placed in more varied dramatic situations. "On the daytime show, the writers have given more maturity to the character of Lisa in the last six months or so. Pert Eileen Fulton and Don Mclaughlin of "As ths World Turns." She'll soon star in a new night version of the popular serial. whether they intend to keep her this way in the night show. Perhaps they'll change her again and return her to her more hateful ways.' The evening show, according to Eileen, .will have a bigger budget. Her pay envelope will be bigger, too. The sets will be better and, on occasion, the cast will be moved outdoors and some scenes shot on location. Eileen, for all the na'stiness she displays on TV, is the.-antithesis of Lisa in real life. She's outgoing, happily pleased with the way things are rolling along, and , smilingly resilient. Her image, in the public eye can be attributed entirely to the imagination of the show's writers. In reality, her background is very circumspect. * » * SHE -WAS born and brought up in Concord, N. C. Her father and mother now live in Black Mountain, N. C, where he is a Methodist minister and her mother is a teacher. "They are my most ardent fans," said Eileen. "Since Mother is away teaching when we go on. the air. Dad tapes it so she can hear it later. He's very ingen- She's trying to be honest nowLious. If.he-has to go out in-the where previously she did things afternoon, he's rigged up the in a devious way. I don't know kitchen timer to the recorder so that it can go on at the proper time and both of theni can play it back later." Following her graduation from Greensboro College in 1956 (she majored in music and dramatics), Eileen came to New York and studied for two years at the Neighborhood Playhouse. Things were a little rough for a while, until she began to win roles in off-Broadway plays and revues. * * » AFTER doing a number of TV hows, she auditioned for the role of Lisa in 1960 and won out ever a number of other hopefuls. Since then she has been with the show regularly with the exceptions of brief hiatuses now and then. Despite the fact that the character of Lisa has softened somewhat recently, Eileen still receives vituperative mail almost every day. "Listen to this one which I received this morning," she smiled. "'Since you play such slimy parts on stage you then deserve to be the; most hated woman in TV. If your father is proud of the work you do, I frould say he is not much of a minister.' •Isn't that wonderful!" National Window By LYLE WILSON . United Press International President Johnson's projected Great Society is emerging in legislative proposals which just about add up to a massive philanthropy at the expense of the U.S. Treasury. LBJ himself is a philanthropy, a word best defined as benevolent, humanitarian? What Johnson is shooting for is a re- weaving of our social, economic, cultural, educational and political fabric. A costly job. The aim of course, is a better place in which to be born, go to school, live, work, .retire and finally die. Johnson's Great Society picks up where the previous Democratic deals and frontiers left off. The program is enormous, like Johnson's Texas. It will be much bigger than the American treasure available to finance it. So what is proposed is that the people of the United States buy some Utopia* for themselves/ on a loose installment plan. But the beginning of the installment payments is far, far in the future. Like Free Lunch The. lure of the program is like the lure of free lunch. Except there is no such thing as free lunch. Someone must pick lip the tab for the knockwurst and .pumpernickel, cheese and crackers set-up at the end of the bar. The charge for free lunch is hidden, concealed in the cost of a schooner of beer or a slug of rye. No money changes .hands when the free loader dips into the free lunch And so it is with LBJ's Great Society. No notes are signed and no collateral is posted when the Prairie View Board of Education accepts a wad Of federal school aid money from the U.S.' Treasury. Ditto for other aid projects as the mas sive philanthropy spreads over the land charming and beuiling the citizens into belief that they never had it so good and shortly will have it better. Small matter that our philan­ thrope President probably will need to appeal to Congress again this spring for a hike in the statutory debt limit. That limit was fixed at $285 billion in June, 1959, but government has been unable to live within income. Government -is compelled to borrow from the citizens large sums with which to lay out the phony free lunch of federal aid now available to those same citizens. The temporary debt limit now is $324 billion until next June 30. It will have to be extended beyond that date and perhaps increased. Expensive Luxuries •• Open-handed presidents are expensive luxuries whether they be Republicans or Democrats. LBJ runs into money although he shrank in 1963 from the spending heights at which CHARLEY OSBON NOW AT THE MOBIL STATION 136 W.

Kennedy was aiming. For example: the public debt at the beginning of. April last year was a fat $309.5 billion. .The debt today is just under $318 billion. .' Johnson has . had to borrow more, than S3 billion in the past 12 months to pay government costs despite federal revenue amounting close to $90 billion. The big-time spenders have been running the show in Washington ever since Fianklin D. Roosevelt took over in. 1933 with a cheery promise to reduce federal spending by 25 per cent. FDR junked that promise in a hurry when he got up against the Depression and ?decided to spend his way out of it. Churches Ask INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) — The Indiana Council of Churches today called on" members of the. 15 denominations it represents to come to the aid of tornado victims through general relief donations and' special gifts of money and time for reconstruction of churches and parsonages. Dr. Grover L. Hartman, executive secretary, said a survey showed at least 10 Indiana ihurches of eight different denominations destroyed and an unknown number of others lam aged badly by the Palm Sunday storms. Dr. Hartman said church members were urged to give to the American Red Cross, Salva'.ion Army and other agencies meeting direct relief needs, and :ongregations were urged to nake extra gifts for reconstruc- ion of religious edifices. Churches listed as' destroyed vere the -Friends and Baptist at tussiaville, Church of the Irethren in Kokomo, Alto lethodist in Howard County, Inion Baptist in Forest, United .'hurch of Christ and Evangeli- al United Brethren in Linn;rove. Brethren Church on the It. Joseph-Marshall County line, Jnited Chuich of Christ near Vakarusa/ and Christian . at .Vyatt.. The Alto Methodist building, ledicated only a month ago, was valued at $250,000. Other churches at Kokomo, Greentown, LaPaz and Dunlap .vere badly damaged. Dr. Hartman said the greatest economic loss was suffered by the world headquarters of the VVesleyan Methodist Church at M a r i^o n. The headquarters moved to Marion after fire destroyed its offices in Syracuse, N.Y. Dr. Hartman said some denominations have made national funds available for aid in Indiana, others called for special offerings Easter Sunday, and others offered volunteer cleanup 'earns. ' The Danville Ministerial Association voted to "adopt" the Russiaville churches, and the leaders of the two' destroyed Linngrove churches are study-' ing the possibility of rebuilding one new church to serve both congregations.
