Kennedy and McCarthy already are battling for support in presidential primaries, the next one in Indiana May 7. "I intend to fight hard for the nomination, but I do not intenc to divide either my party or my nation,".Humphrey said. "In this effort I. shall'do my best. And I ask no less of those who. will join me. For democracy is only what democracy gets done," Humphrey said. I enter this course with a determination to win," he continued. "And I shall base everything I do on one conviction: That this country, working-in a spirit of unity, can overcome any obstacle in finally realizing the. fullness of freedom, the prize of peace, and the happiness of .'human opportunity-^ here and in the world." Humphrey said Johnson "acted bravely and beyond all personal interest" in : rejecting re- nomination in an effort, the President, said March 31, to aring unity to America and peace to Southeast Asia, • "We do not yet know the outcome of the President's initial tive for peace in Asia," Humphrey said. "We are hopeful, but without illusion. Only tune and events will give the answer. "We do know, however, that in our country a sense of balance has been restored," he said. He said. Johnson's action dramatized the nation's mosl urgent need—the need for unity. The time has come, Humphrey said, to .put aside "selfish ambition, and pettiness"- and to recognize that the United States has more strength than, weaknesses. "The time has come to express a new American patriotism," he said. "Not a patriotism expressed alone in flags.Or parades, but in a willingness to get down to the hard, tiring, endless work that every generation before us has paid out to keep alive the vision of what American can be. "The time has eome, in short, to reaffirm once more that we can do whatever we must do to carry forth the unfinished and peaceful American revolution." Although any heir-apparent status for Humphrey is vague at this point, professional politicians are firm in the belief Johnson prefers Humphrey as his successor. The President announced March' 31 he will not run again but made- clear in remarks Thursday night he will not be a bystander in the campaign. And Johnson's promise to vigorously oppose '"any would-be divisive force" in the nation was widely interpreted as directed primarily at Kennedy and McCarthy, critics of the way he las handled the Vietnam war and other problems. This and the chief executive's pledge'to work for continuance of his domestic programs pointed strongly to Humphrey, the ndefatigable defender of Johnson policies at home and in Vietnam. •"•••It remains undisclosed just how and when Johnson would help his loyal Vice president pick up Wpport for the Democratic convention in August at Chicago while Kennedy and. McCarthy harvest the publlcity'md, the votes from presidential primaries he .is not entering. But Humphrey, 56, is regarded as', a strong prospect to win the nomination, a prize he saw vanish. in 1960 after suffering primary defeats at the hands of John F. Kennedy. Organized labor and business leaders are giving him help- business principally because some of its leaders have an ingrained fear of Kennedy, Who gave the steel industry a rough time as attorney general when President "Kennedy forced a steel-price jollback. And Humphrey enters the campaign with strong support of regular Democrats in the South who had expected to back Johnson for renomihation until the President bowed out. Govs. John J. McKeithen of Louisiana,. Buford Ellington- of Tennessee, John B. Connally of Texas and Mills E. Godwin of Virginia all have had kind words for Humphrey. Ironically, Humphrey was once regarded as no friend nf the South after: his successful fight to win adoption .of a civil rights plan at the 1948 Democratic National Convention. That fight first put him in the national political spotlight. The vice president hopes for COURT I (Contijiued ftoiB Pf r One) prison'; Wensuspended. '•••" ".'""

THE RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD The majestic truth of the resurrection of the dead is a divine truth. It is not found in human religions, unless these.have been touched in some way by the Word of God. This truth is peculiar to the Bible alone. In traditional theology we find continually the phrase; "the resurrection of the body." This phrase is not found in sacred Scripture. The term used consistently in the .Bible is "the resurrection of the dead." This teaches us that it is the dead who are raised, not just some part of man called the body. ' • An important passage bearing upon this subject is the record of the death, burial, and resurrection of Lazarus as set forth in John's Gospel, chapter.eleven. Here John gives a detailed account of events which he witnessed. . ; . • • Lazarus was sick, and his sisters, Mary and Martha, sent word to the Lord Jesus reporting his illness. When the Lord, was, He declared that this sickness was not unto death, but for the glory of G6d,.that the Son of Gdd.rtiight'.be glorified by it. •After two days had passed, the Lord Jesus announced to His disciples, "Our friend Lazarus-sleepetn; but 1 go, that I may .awake him out of his sleep" (John 11:11). The disciples misunderstood His words when He referred to death a's sleep. They took Him literally, but there was no excuse for any such misunderstanding. Nobody would go on a journey to awaken a sick niari out of his sleep. The Lord corrected them immediately by saying plainly, "Lazarus is dead" (John 11:14). , When Jesus arrived in Bethany, He found that Lazarus had been "in the grave four days already." Martha told Him that if He had been there her brother would not have died. Jesus said'unto her, "Your brother will risei again." -. . ....'-- •.-•'. • It should be noted that the language of this chapter is in complete harmony with Biblical truth concerning-death and .resurrection. It was Lazarus who was sick,- Lazarus who died, Lazarus who was 'in the grave four days. Martha said "my brother" in speaking of his death, and the Lord said "your brother" in speaking of his resurrection. And as if to climax the force of the truth, we are told the Lord shouted, "Lazarus, come forth." Then the inspired word tells us "He that was dead came forth" (John 11:43,44);----'v ..-' •.../"-.;••; ' There are many .who insist that.they believe in the Bible, and yet it is evident that they believe very little recorded in this chapter. They do not believe that Lazarus was dead, and they do not believe that he was in the grave four days. They interpret all this as speaking of something they call Lazarus's body, insisting that the real Lazarus was alive all the time. But they make only feeble attempts to explain when Lazarus was and what he was doing these four days. ' ' The fact is that Lazarus was dead. The Bible declares that "the dead hnoweth not anything.'-' It tells us that "there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom in the grave" (Eccl. 9:5-10). This explains why Lazarus gave no report of his experiences while in the state of death. Our next message will be THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST. OtjsQ.Sellers- . .

THE WORD OF TRUTH MINISTRY ' (Continued from f»»t Owl 'gressiohal desire to keep tin emphasis on a local antipoverty approach. Perrin says there is no question the first preference of OEO in its guidelines is for local action. '•••:•'-"-.'..Pennsylvania', director Elmer Kline said, "OEO hasn't accepted Pennsylvania's plan at all. It's still in limbo. They're resisting •it",A r k'a n s a s director Glen Jermstad said, "They've been opposed to state involvement since the beginning." But Florida ahtipoverty director James Bax and the Louisiana governor's executive secretary, Louis Quinn, reported full cooperation from the OEO in their studies and planning, even though both said it is obvious OEO does not prefer a statewide approach. In general, the states asking to become antipoverty units say they are seeking expansion of the programs for the poor. Thejr cite counties lacking local Community Action programs and argue a statewide approach would reach more of the needy. Perrin says lack of money limits programs and statewide organization will ; not remedy this. PB1V1LEGE5 AUTHORIZED *l SECOND CLASS MAIL BlTtHerille courier Nein BLVIUEVILLE, ABK ZIP - 7231! Bart; W.
