COURIER THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 19S6 Ovarttat with BILLY GRAHAM By Georg* Burnham (Chattanooga News-Free Press Writer) DELHI India — Prime Minister Nehru of India, who has described himself as Hindu by birth, Moslem by culture and Christian by ethics, seemed a bit preoccupied at the end of Ins 30 minute talk with Billy Graham. Nehru had been holding a lot of their skin might be. conferences on wprld affairs and "Peace will come.' he said, had talked with a lot of important "when people turn by faith to foreigners.

The musician. Abraham Wulfe, was awarded $6.500 damages. He testified he suffered back, shoulder and leg injuries in a bus-truck accident in 1954. He was a passenger on the bus. Asked his "greatest loss," Wulfe. told the jury: "I grew up with the cello. I lived with it for 10 years. Now I can't play it any more and this tiurts me more than if I had S10.000 and lost it. To be in the same room with the cello and not play it — this I cannot stand." Wulfe formerly was a cello instructor and member of the UCLA j Symphony Orchestra. The damages were awarded from the company operating the truck. Dog Bites Lad; 100 Stitches To Close Wounds Jet Airliner Age Moves Closer Nehru, son of a wealthy lawyer. tr j le( j in the south.

Despite all his culture man continues to lie and steal and fight. In over 3,000 years of history there have been only 300 years of peace. Why? It is because man has rejected God's offer of peace through faith to His Son, Jesus Christ." 8ILLT ADDED: "Christ can transform human nature. He transformed mine, and I have seen Him change the lives of thousands of others around the world." Billy gave Nehru his own testimony on the decision, he made for Christ as a youth of 16.

Many leaders of the government were present. Rajkumari Amrit Kaur. minister for health and close friend of Nehru, presided at the opening service. Sitting on the platform were five ambassadors and two queens. People came from as far away as 1.200 miles. A missionary group of 500 were living in a tent city in order to attend. Billy delivered a simple Gospel message and gave an invitation. People crowded to the front. The chairman of Graham's Delhi committee left his place on the platform and stood with the converts. He went to Billy after the meeting and said: "I didn't know what the people might think if the chairman of the committee admitted his life wasn't right. But I didn't have the peace in my soul and I had to take out ai« simple act cnangeo. my u»- eac ture. I began to worship God and I my place before the platform.

Barne* says "Uri- du« concentration" in the automobile industry may lead to anti-trust action against the country's major car manufacturer*. Barnes, in charge of the Justice ' Department's Antitrust Division, yesterday told the National Whole- Mle Drygoods Assn.: "Ttiere k an undue concentration . . . which is becoming more and more sharply recognizable each day In the automobile business and which, It it continues, will require •ctlon of some kind to solve." Barnes cited figures of the auto industry's Big Three—General Motors, Ford and Chrysler. In 1949, he said, the trio Meld 85 per cent of the market with the remaining percentage being sh'ared by fix smaller firms. By 1954. he added, the big three had 96V. per cent of the market. Barnes later told newsmen that last month's figures give General Motors about 50 per cent of the new car market. 30 per cent to Ford, 17 per cent to Chrysler and the remainder divided up between smaller firms.

Lavoie. and 8th Air Force staff sergeant during-World War n. received orders to report today to the veterans hospital at Ft. Howard. Attached to the form was an envelope containing three bus tokens. ''No additional reimbursement for traveling expenses will be allowed." the accompanying explanation said. But the tokens supplied by the Veterans Administration will be of little use to Lavoie. Baltimore is in the midst of an 11-day-old transit strike. By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK (*—The jet age— with its problems of noise, crowded airlanes, outdated airports, and the financing of IV, billion dollars worth of jet airliners—is a step nearer today. While the British bemoan the loss of their once-proud lead in jet transports, American plane makers now have firm orders for 188 and outstanding options for 36 more. The race has been between Boeing and Douglas. With Howard Hushes' order this week for eight jets tor Trans World Airlines, Boe- ina now has orders for 83. Hughes says TWA is talking aboul 22 more, and this would bring Boeing to 105. Douela.5 Has 105 Douglas counts its orders at 105, and Its options of 13 would make a total of 118. When all the options become firm orders, the American manufacturers will have 223 jet transports in the works. Deliveries of the speedy craft- Los Angeles to New York in 4 -Sours and—!5- minutes—are scheduled in volume between 1958 and 1961. And it is in that period that the airlines will have to find the I'/., billion dollars that- the planes and spare parts are expected to! cost. Marine Freed From Drugstore BOSTON (ffi—Marine Pfc. Peter I D. Narkates, 21. went into a drug- j store early today to place a phone call to his wife in Birmingham, Ala. The store's owner, Samuel Hoffman, unaware Narkates was in the booth, turned off the lights, locked up and left. When Narkates realized his predicament, he phoned police. They looked up Hoffman, who returned and freed the marine. In addition to orders from most big American carriers now, the aircraft makers have orders from Air France, Sabena and Belgian World Airlines. Some of the cost of the 223 jets will come from airline earnings (aided, in one sense, by government subsidies). But new capital will have to be sought loo. This could come from long-term loans ti-om insurance companies, short- term loans from banks, or from new stock and bond issues. Through Savings The airlines hope to get their money back through operating savings. Jet builders contend their craft will produce much more revenue for the airlines because of bigger carrying capacity and more t^-ips in the same period because of the higher speed. ' On the ground is. the problem ol old airports Which the jet age could make obsolete, and the need for longer runways. Some cities will find their air space still more crowded. Boeing engineers report progress in tackling the noise nuisance They are testing a sound suppressor for their jets. Another angle the aircraft! scientists are working on is. to find { some way to slow jets down before' landing—one solution for the too- short runway problem. If noise and inadequate airports are overcome by 1958. the speedy jets should be a delight for the air-minded traveler. FOR SALE Restaurant Equipment Located at 315 W.
