LOS ANGKLES, Dec. 5 (UP)—' The Into blind .senator from Minnesota, Thomas Schall, wanted so much to see that he paid the "f am" cult $1,000 for a miracle. Restoring- .sight to the blind was not difficult, the cult leaders told the afflicted, Sen. Schall's widow testified in the trial of 10 of them charged .with defrauding their followers of $3,000,000 through the maib:. They claimed they could even restore dismembered limbs, Mrs. Schall said. Mrs. Edna W. Ballard, widow of the cult's founder, who is known to her followers as "Joan of Arc," told her in Washington in 135 that the I' urn doctrine could make her husband .see again, she testified. Of course, she qualified, it couldn't al! be done at once. "fie must visualize a ray of'light i fro'' mthe mighty I Am presence, passing through his head, moving out at right angles, passing through his eyes." Mrs. Schall quoted Mrs. Balhml. Mrs. Schall said she and her hu.sbaad. attended many meetings of the cult, the senator hoping hope always, for a miracle. "Their preaching's," she continued, "were that a vortex was now working over Europe and that there were many gas belts in that area, two over the equator, and one over the Pacific Ocean. There is a gas "ircle extending completely around the United States. • "Los Angeles is like a heart of »olcl, encased in a light of steel from the north pole to the south pole, shutting out Europe." This, she was told, was going to cause a world-wide" cataclysm •xncl in a new world order resulting, Los Angeles would become "the city of light.". "I asked them when all this was going to happen," she continued, "and they said that even St. Germain didn't know — but that it would be soon." The cult worshipped light. Its saints were "ascended masters" who so mastered light that they had ascended into heaven on particles of light which may be seen dancing in the sun.. ';•->•• ; 'She said," Mrs. Schall continued, "that after you were advanced fai enough you could use these lights to precipitate anything you wanted—money, food, clothing. And you even could use this power Lo take spots oft your clothes. The trial was adjourned until Tuesday to permit Judge Leon H. Yankwich to sit in Fresno. Charles Noble; 679, Raymond Rounds n; 680.
