BLTTHEYTLLl (ARK.) COURIER MONDAY, FEBRUARY 6, Overseas with BILLY GRAHAM By George Burnham (Chattanoosa News-Free Press Writer) MADRAS, India — The American had borrowed an Indian musical instrument and was trying to tame a cobra. His wife was focusing her camera to get the picture. But the cobra didn't co-operate. He struck at the man. The American didn t run He reached down quickly and got a strong grip on the cobra's head. The venom may have been removed from the snake's fangs, but it still took courage to grab him. The wife wasn't quite so brave. She was shaking so badly that focusing a camera was out or the question. Dr. Bob Pierce of Los Angeles, a missionary pioneer in the Far East who was looking on with Billy Graham, stepped up and too* the picture. After the sidewalk incident the man introduced himself to Pierce and Billy. He was Judge Philip B. Gilliam of Denver, Colo. Another bystander, who just happened to be on the scene, was the Rev. Robert Youngdahl of Minneapolis. An American bull session developed. JUDGE GIII/IAM was elected president of the National Council of Juvenile Court Judges in 1953. He was elected judge of Denver's famous juvenile court In 1940, and re-elected in 1944, 1948 and 1952, each time with the highest vote ever given any candidate for public office in the city and county for Denver. In these elections he received more votes than Roosevelt, Truman or Eisenhower. Certainly a representative American, he was in India making addresses as a delegate of the U. S. Information Service. He had heard about Billy Graham but had ue.- er heard him speak. During the next two days he sat in on a press conference conducted by the evangelist and then, with his wife, attended a church service. They sat on the front row.

O, P. and Rebekah Lodges of Steele will hold a pie supper Monday evening (Feb. 6) at the Oddfellows Hall, it was announced by Earl Hawkins, Noble Grand, following a meeting this i week. i The public is invited to partici- ! pate and pies will be auctioned off • in the old fashioned way. ! A program for the evening is being arranged. One of the entertainment groups announced is the I Steele Extension Club Sextette who ! ca's hellfire and damnation preachers and thought Mr. Graham might be another one," commented Mrs. Gilliam. "But he wasn't like that at all. He explained the fact of sin, the cure for it through faith in Jesus Christ and then gave a common sense appeal for the people to make a decision on whether they would accept Christ or reject Him. There was nothing emotional about it. I was so impressed." The judge added: "Billy didn't appeal to the emotions, but my wile and I sat '.here with tears in our eyes. We have been church members for years, out I believe we will be better church members after hearing Billy. I believe that I will be a better judge when I return to Denver. As I sat there listening to this clean-cut young American I couldn't help wishing that every juvenile delinquent who appeared before me in the last 20 years could have heard him.. He had the answer to their problems. "Now that I have heard him and have seen the effect he has on people, I don't think there is a single man in.the United States who can do as much for America abroad as Billy Graham." That's quite a statement, but it comes from a successful American who can be regarded as thorough-1 ly reliable source. Other competent statesmen and. newspapermen in Great Britain and Europe have said the same | thing. [ Billy's reply to all such praise.! however, is always this: i "To God be the glory. Great. things He hath done!" American servicemen at Dhahran almost mobbed Billy Graham when they spotted him at the airport! during a brief stop. Asked him to come there for a service sometime i "The greatest disappointment ] about Mr. Graham's visit to India: is that he didn't bring George Bev- • erly.Shea with him. Mr. Shea is the most loved religious singer in all India." . . . remark by Indian church leader. * * * The departure from Kottayam was a sleepy one for Billy. He was awakened by his aide, Dr. Paul Maddox, who said it was 6 a.m Billy shaved, dressed and looked at his watch—it was 4 a.m. The language won't allow some things to be interpreted. Billy said, "Don't pat me on the back." It came out, "Don't beat me on the back." .Another United States preacher once said, "tickled to death to be here." The interpreter said, "He's so happy to be here he has just caught itch and scratching himself to death." TO 105 W.
