SATURDAY Duplicate Bridge League meeting OvtrMOt with BILLY GRAHAM By George Burnhaqi (ChatUnoogi Newi-Free Press Writer) MADRAS, India — Amon, who poured into Madras from a many thousands of people r .. parts of India to hear Billy Graham was one man who walked over 400 miles. He preached at villages along the way. When told about the man Billy replied, "I am not worthy of preaching to that man. I should be sitting at his feet." One hundred people from Hyder-, To others Christ was just one of abad, 800 miles away, rode a train thousands of other gods, but Billy four days and nights. They had " " ' "" " ""'" "' been praying in a 24-hour prayer chain lor weeks that God would bless India through Billy. When all accommodations in town were gone people went from house to house seeking rooms. Hundreds slept in the open. They had come to hear a man who had the peculiar talent for talking about God in a language that people could understand. MORNING meetings at 7 o'clock and eve/iing meetings at 6 o'clock were scheduled for three days. The morning meetings were held for ministers, with more than 5,000. on hand at dawn for the first meeting. Over 30,000 turned out for the evening rally. Soros of the people sat at the site all day. About 3,000 were present by 2 p.m. Billy has hart larger crowds but there was something different about this one People, some dressed in rags and others in the finest of silk robes, sat there on grass mats and waited. Most were barefooted. Men and women never sit together in church. There was no hum of conversations. People were quiet. It was an unreal quietness. There were two choirs of 300 each. One sang in English, the other in Indian dialect. An Indian band played music which had a foot-patting beat to it. • • a BILLY STEPPED Up to the mike. He had two interpreters instead of the usual one. ,The message had to be translated into Telegu and Tamil dialects. He would stop after each phrase or sentence and had plenty of time to scratch his head before time to speak again. India has hundreds of dialects. People can live 20 miles apart and not be able to understand each other. Billy spoke about a man by the name of Jesus Christ. Some of the people in the strange congregation had never before heard of Him. described Him as the only God, with the Bible quotation "I am the way, the truth and the life. No man cometh unto the Father but by Me." He added: "Many Indians seem to have the idea that Christianity is a western religion. That is wrong. There were Christian churches in India before America was discovered. Christ was an easterner. His skin was not as lightas mine and it service dispatch quoted Billy as saying Christ was a Negro. He did not say that. HE DESCRIBED Christ as the only road to heaven and then told eager listeners they could only get there by repentance of sin and receiving Jesus by faith. He gave the invitation. The response was immediate. The front aisle was filled in minutes. Some of those standing before the platform wore a tiny dot in the- forehead — the sign of a Hindu holy man. A man knelt with his face in the Can't Get Rid off Yoiir COLD?

But over 4,000 Gospels of John were given out. There were not enough Tamil, Telegu and English counselors to go around. On the second night 904 signed cards and over 1,000 signed decision cards the third night. • • • PROBABLY the most impressivs service of the Madras meetings was a morning address to 7,000 students of the area. Billy stressed the folly of rejecting Christ because the human mind cannot understand al! about Him intellectually. Two hundred and fifty of the students responded to the invitation. A missionary in India for m»ny years said, "These are the finest young men and 'women in India. This is the first time anyone hu ever reached their heart* with th» Gospel of Christ." His eyes were filled with tears. During three days in Madrai Billy snake-to over 100,000 Indisns and recorded about 4,000 decisions for Christ. Bulganin and Khrushchev didn't do as well.
