The north side of that section of Moultrie is outside the city limits and the prospects of city- county participation paving the streets are remote, indeed. That evaluation conies from Mayor Tom Little.

Abrams, the deputy U.S. commander in Vietnam will be placed in direct, on-the-spot j command of the U.S. Marines and soldiers defending it. The Soviet government news agency Tass said Friday that the United States will be dealt "an even stronger rebuff from the Vietnamese people" if it escalates the war against North Vietnam in retaliation for what Tass called recent Viet Cong victories.

He traveled about 500 feet before meeting the train. The engineer stopped and the driver got off the track safely.

I told them I had been a student of Scripture for forty-eight years, had previously examined much of their literature, that it did not fulfill the claims they made for it, and that its real purpose seemed to be to bring men into the bondage of their sett. They insisted they were not under any bondage, so I asked them if I were, a member of their society if I would have the privilege of challenging any of the teachings contained in their literature. They frankly told me I would not; that in order to be a member I must accept all interpretations of Scripture set forth by their group. I told them I could imagine no worse bondage than the lack of freedom to challenge a teaching I believed to be unscriptural. They attempted to justify the propriety of such a course, but I said it was useless to explore the matter further as such bondage was simply not for me. I then told them that for almost a half-century I had given my life to the happy task of exalting the Lord Jesus Christ and magnifying His person and work as declared in the,Bible, but I had found in their literature definite attempts to debase Him and make Him to be much less than what the Bible declares concerning Him. They wanted to discuss this, but their words were proof of what I had just said. They were prone to debase and to belittle the Lord Jesus, to stultify all that the Bible said in.regard to Him. I then asked them to make a statement as to what Jesus Christ meant to them, to tell me of the place He filled in their lives. Their answer revealed that He meant very little to them, and that the place He should have1n.:their lives had been preempted by the organization •id whiclnthey«belonged. Good standing in their organization, not relationship to Jesus Christ, would guarantee them deliverance.from death in some terrible battle that is soon to engulf the whole world, wiping out all mankind except members of their society. I told them that I could not be frightened by talk about Armageddon, and charged them with being the spiritual successors of a long line of prophets of terror and doom who in times past had frightened people in turn by grisly sermons on torment, then ins unpardonable sin, then the great tribulation, and rrow the battle of Armageddon. By this time I felt the discussion was unprofitable, and felt they were saying things to arouse me to anger so they could go away feeling persecuted, so I asked them to listen while I made a statement that would end in a direct question. I then said: I am a personal believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, accepting without question that He was God manifest in the flesh. With Thomas of old I fall at His feet and say, "My Lord and my God." I have God for my Father, and Jesus Christ as my Savior. I have redemption through His blood, and the forgiveness of sins according to the riches of His grace. I have the promise of life in Christ Jesus, even the guarantee of resurrection in case I should be among the dead when God assumes sovereignty over the earth. All this is mine because I am a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ. Now what do you have to offer me that is greater or better than this? They had nothing to offer except bondage in a sect that demanded I recognize a man in Brooklyn, New York, as the head qf God's government on earth. Such bondage is not for me. Otis Q.
