fA9I IVtlMTIM (ARK.) COURIER MONDAY, FEBRUARY «, 1»« with BILLY GRAHAM By George Burnham (Chattanooga News-Free Frew Writer) HONG KONG — The Far Eastern tour of Billy Graham didn't go behind the curtain, but came as close as law allowed. has penetrated the bamboo curtain of Communist China. Billy He knocked on the frond door with a big rally at Hong Kong, fabulous free port located just 28 miles away from the barbed wire border of Red China. Penetration was in the form of prayer and printed material. Christians in Communist-held Shanghai •ent word that hundreds there were .praying the Hong Kong rally might strike a spark across China. that would blaze They also sent word that many oopies of his book "Peace with God" were being distributed behind tile Iron Curtain. * * * ONE MISSIONARY, Who will go unnamed, told Billy that a copy of one of his sermons was mailed to in ShmilT- hai. It just so happened that on the following Sunday the preacher hadn't taken the trouble to prepare a sermon. He walked into the pulpit and read the one written by Billy. Like all his sermons, it ended in an invitation for people to accept Christ. A Russian officer was the first one to get out of his seat and make the decision. Hundreds of thousands of refugees from Red China have poured into Hong Kong. Emergency housing has been thrown up for them but there are about 60,000 people in Hong Kong today who are sleeping on rooftops under the most miserable living conditions. According to the refugees, rooftops are far better than the things they had under the Communists. BRINGING WORD of rising discontent behind the barbed wire, they said soldiers took practically everything they could grow on the land and paid with worthless receipts. They reported sentiment among the people of Red China was swinging back to Chiang Kai-shek and many thousands would revolt behind the lines if he invaded the mainland. Rumors from top sources are that such invasion isn't as fantastic as it sounds. Hong Kong is probaoiy the world's busiest listening post. It is from here that the free world listens to Red China and vice versa. Agents from many countries sit around in hotel lobbies and look like a convention of furniture salesmen. But they aren't talking about chairs. Some may wonder why Communists left the rich plum of Hong Kong for the free world when it could have been taken with a min- imum at effort. X iw't *o «tr»ng» Hong Kong la far more valuable to Red China as a' free oity than other wise. It is through Hong Kong tha the millions of dollars in war materiel flow from Great Britain. Britain rules Hong Kong, and Red China is tickled pink. John Bolten, Boston businessman and I rickshawed up to South China football field, thirty minutes late for Billy's Hong Kong rally with 17,000 overflowing inside. Police hac locked the gates. When we posed as members of the team, officers said, "There are 20,000 people dow here in a. nearby field who couldn get in. Go down and start a song service for them." We pleaded guilty to not being singers and got in Billy was introduced by the governor of Hong Kong, Alexander Grantham. There were an estimated 1,000 decisions. * * • SIDELIGHTS: Dr. Paul Maddox, aide to Billy Graham, almost talked his way through a British checkpoint with a Texaco credit card. Remarked Charlie Biggs: "You could have gone to Peking if the card had been "Good Gulf" .... BlUy's European documentary film was banned in India because ie referred to Russia as "Godless and ruthless' and mentioned the "Iron Curtain". It's supposed to be a secret. Six people were on the plane with iiislc director Cliff Barrows when he flew from. London to join the Billy Graham team in Delhi, India. One of the passengers introduced himself to Cliff and said he had become a Christian during Billy's Glasgow meetings last year. The plane changed crews in Karachi.
