TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 28," 19W BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER HEWS PAGE THREE Ovcrscat with' BILLY GRAHAM , By George Burnham (Chattanooga Newi-Fcee PTCH Writer) OSAKA, Japan—Billy Graham intended to talk on evangelism but never got around to it. About 1,200 missionaries from every city and village in southern Japan were gathered at Osaka to hear the young preacher most of the missionaries had prayed for but few had" seen. A large majority of the Cache of Money, Gold Found In Old House of Spinsters missionaries were from America. Billy announced his text and then + started talking asout something' eise. it was very informal. He was among home folk who loved God enough to leave • their loved ones for Him. "Bless your hearts. You' should be preaching to me. Your devotion and sacrifices have been far greater than mine." He told them about great crowds that came to hear the Gospel of Christ in Great Britain, Europe and India. * * • AND THEN he said: "I want to tell you something that I haven't told others on this trip around the world, i feel tonight as if. my ministry Is going to be very brief. My name has appeared in too many newspapers. It has been placed on too many posters. There has been too much praise given to a man and the Bible says God' will not share His glory with any man." He added, "If there are any newspapers in heaven the name of Billy 'Graham will not be on the front page. Headlines will be about some unknown missionary back in the jungles who has been faithful." After telling about the big crowds attending the meetings he discussed some of the reasons for his unusual ministery. He said: "The Number One thing has been prayer. People around the world have prayed. God answers prayer." "The great need on the mission field today is not a new method or more money even though we don't give enough. The big need is more prayer from folks at home. They should join in saturating the work with prayer. . "THE SECOND reason for our success has been the power of the Holy Spirit. A human being can take another just so far toward heaven. God's spirit must do the rest. All of us need to be filled with .the Holy Spirit. There were only 120 pepole at Pentecost but they went out and shook the world in one generation. We have more of everything than they had. except one. They were .filled with the Holy Spirit. "The message is important^-not the messenger. The trouble with many preachers today is that they are too proud to preach the simple Gospel that people' can understand. I used to be too proud myself. "I have found that I cannot win anybody for Christ unless I preach about the cross on which He died. There is a power in the cross that is found in no other place in the Bible. And I have found that I must preach the resurrection. "Christ didn't stay in the grave. He rose again. I worship a triumphant, living Christ.'Some of us Christians go around with long faces as if we are attending a funeral. "ANOTHER thing that revolutionized my ministry was the day I accepted the Bible as God's inspired word. Back m 1946, '41 and '48 I had doubts about some parts of CHICAGO I* — A secret room in ramshackle house has produced a treasure box filled with money and gold and some intriguing sidelights about the life of two spinster sisters who earned a fortune on the stock market. The 100-year-old, two-story dwelling in the center of suburban Itasca was the home of Josephine and Cecelia Schroeder —r last survivors Of a family that settled in Itasca when the region was-virgin farmland. They lived there with 18 pet cats. Josephine died April 23, 1954, at trie age of 89. Cecelia died .last Sept. 7 at 76, leaving to charity the bulk of the $225,000 estate the sisters had amassed, Charles E. Newton, executor of Cecelia Schroeder's estate, told Sunday night about stumbling into a hidden room while making an inventory. He pushed aside a dresser and discovered a doorway into a room cluttered with boxes and oth- ei items. He picked up one box and the top flew open. Inside was 54,460 in present-day $100, $50, $20 and $5 bills, gold watches and chains, $300 in old gold coins, $100 in gold certificates, a handful of old 2-cent and 3-cent U. S coins of the Civil War period, and a few old nickels and Indian- head pennies. The value of the old coins or of "FRANK'S FORD" Frankfort, the capital of Ken- tuky, was not a fort originally. Its name is a corruption of 'Frank's Ford," named after an early settler, according to the Encyclopedia Britannica.

(Photo by Sanders) the Bible. And when I preached I had no power. "I fell on my knees and told God I was going to get out of the ministry unless I found a message with power. From that day I have accepted the Bible as God's inspired word to man and have preached It with authority. "These ate unusual days. The Spirit of God is moving; across the nations of the world in a way never seen before. It is easier to talk with j people about Jesus Christ today than any time in living memory. I wouldn't trade places with the j Apostle Paul or any of the others who lived in the past. This is God's hour for the church. Let's be faithful to the task God has called us to do." He seemed to be a different Billy Graham as he talked with the missionaries. Maybe they can hear the address on evangelism on his next I trip areund the world .... unless I his ministry is cut short. SIDELIGHT: People In Japan who have colds wear a handkerchief strapped around their faces. Looks a little unusual but makes sense. Saves nose wiping and prevents spread of the cold. It may be an economic instead of health measure. People can't afford to have colds in a land, where preachers make an average of $33 a month.
