(AP) "Thank you," wrote the minister, "for taking us out of the begging business." The letter is a prized possession of A. B.

The problem simply was this: Persons moving to the new su- October 23 Is Date For State Fair burbs are burdened with mortgages, car payments, the need to put up at least a decent front.

The bonds are secured by the church property and are paid, aong with the interest, from regular Sunday contributions. "It is a self-propelling propos tion," says Culbertson, a spry, 71-year-old Baptist layman. ' We just ride herd from the mo- rtient we sign up a church until the last bond is paid for," Most savings and loan asso- ialions ignored churches' fi- i ancial needs 10 years ago, Cul- "icrtson said in an interview, }Jank standards were too rigo- ous to be met by new, strug- [ling churches. "Now they're bidding for bhurch loans," Culbertson said. i Culbertson said three factors bontributed to the widespread 'demand for new churches: The population explosion, influx of people from rural areas to cities and mushrooming suburbia. Success of the A. B. Culbertson & Co. formula is reflected in hundreds of churches across 14 states. Culbertson began by experimenting with a loan to a group in Borger, Tex. "It was successful, and we just started rolling," he said. "There was no church loan competition then and it was pitiful how folks were trying to get people to help them." The Culbertson concern now Rev. Mays Plans Leave Of Absence The Rey. Willie Mays, pastor of Reeves CME Temple, will preach his final sermon of the 1963-64 conference year Sunday, according to Wilfred Lambert, church secretary. Rev.

Cardinal Tien, for- Walker said the .meeting will be held in the Court' of Appeals room of the State Capitol. The meeting has been called because of an apparent deficit operation of all classes of automobile liability underwriting in Louisiana, According to arithmetical tabulations for 1963, for every $100 of premium earned, insurance companies paid out as losses and other expenses over $115, Walker said. In the face of mounting underwriting losses, the insurance companies seem to be more reluctant to issue automobile liability policies to many applicants. A growing number of automobile owners find it difficult to buy insurance at present rates from licensed companies, he said. , Walker said that the loss, and premium statistics reyeallngnhe unprofitable condition of automobile liability insurance in Louisiana was received from advisory organizations representing insurance companies writing within the state.

A civil antitrust suit was brought by the Justice Department Thursday against Chrysler at Newark, N.J. Chrysler promptly denied the government's charge the move would reduce competition in the auto industry. The Chrysler statement said further it was "dismaying and strange" that the government should move at this time in an "eleventh . hour action." The auto company said it had kept the government fully informed since Hhe deal was broached three months ago. Federal Judge Reynier Wortendyke of Newark issued & temporary restraining order enjoining Chrysler from going ahead with the acquisition of Mack Trucks, The government is to follow up witti a request for a preliminary injunet&n, a Justice Department spokesman said. Acting under the Clayton and Sherman antitrust laws, the government charged the deal woul4 substantially reduce competition te the iypck and diesel Bible School InMossville MOSSV1LLE (Spl.) - Registration for vacation Bible school at Mt, Zion Baptist Church in Mossville, will be held at 5 p.m. Sunday, according to the Rev.
