EIGHT IRONWOOD DAILY 'SIOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN MONDAY, MAY 31,1965. Development of Spirit Is Vital Graduates Told "The Realm of the Spirit," a search into man's most inn e r self and the nurturing of what was termed one of the least developed aspects of human nature, was the topic at the 1965 baccalaureate service of the Luther L. Wright High School given by the Rev. Kenneth L. Ner- renz, pastor of Salem Lutheran Church. Directing his comments at the materialism in which the world of today is so thoroughly engrossed, Pastor Nerenz said the spiritual development of the individual has been stunted to the detriment of his all around wellrbeing, and consequently the well-being of the nation and the world at large. Despite great strides made in all the areas of human development since man's creation, the spiritual status of man is much the same now as it was on that day so long ago when Cain slew his brother, Abel, he noted. With various exceptions man has changed but little, in the spiritual sense despite the tremendous achievements he has made in other areas of his development, he said. Wars are perhaps the most significant proof of this, he exclaimed, together with corruption, greed, and the general moral decay which is evident in this civilization. Perhaps there will always be wars as long as man is in existence, but Pastor Nerenz added that he believes civilization is now experiencing what he call e d "its last chance," in the words of the late General Douglas MacArthur. "Its last chance, he said, is to learn to live together in peace or die. The setting of one's own standards of conduct is another fal- acy for which man is suffering today, he said. Because ignoring the traditional concepts of morality and behavior for what seems to the individual to be the best form of behavior to enhance his benefits results in only furthering the downfall of his character and moral stature, he stated He exhorted the graduates to not only improve their social and economic status as they tread the path of life, but to set their standards of living upon the teachings of Christ which he said is so vitally important to the world in this time of turmoil, struggle and international crises If this nation is to remain physically strong, it must be first morally .strong or eventu ally end up the loser. "I have perhaps painted a gloomy picture of the world and life in general," Pastor Nerenz exclaimed, "but I would rather paint a realistic picture to you, the graduates, who are the future of the nation, rather than paint a rosy, but untrue picture." Concluding his talk, Nerenz told the graduates to Judge man, as they make their way through life, not by his material wealth and materialistic accumulation, but by what he is as an Individual; whether he is of high moral and ethical character, and whether or not he exemplifies the Christian standards of behavior. Prior to the address, t graduates and the audience sang four stanzas of the stirr i n g hymn, "A Mighty Fortress is Our God," which was preceded by the Invocation given by the Rt Rev.-Msgr. Joseph J. Dunleavy pastor of St. Ambrose Catholic Church, and a selection by the Girls Glee Club, "How Like Un to A Flower." The Boys Ensemble did not sing a number as had been previously planned. Two selections, "Alleluia," and "Climb Every Mountain" were sung by a Mixed Choir and the Rev. Ralph T. Dlrksen, pastor of Bethany Covenant Church gave the benediction, which was followed by the recessional.

Thomas Landers ill Graduate Mack Says Bill ill Help U. P. State Senator Joseph S. Mack (D-Ironwood) has announced that counties of the Upper Peninsula will soon be enriched by an increase of $83,095.71 in tax payments from the state. Mack, vice chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee, said the increase to the counties was made possible through unanimous passage in the Senate of his bill (S-33) to hike the per acre payments made from the state treasury to the counties on state owned lands. "The $83,000 which has long been overdue, will toe put to good use toy the Upper Peninsula counties," Mack said, "This is an important first step for our area toward my ultimate objective—which is to have all taxes on state owned lands in the Upper Peninsula paid on an equal basis to those paid by private owners on the regular ad valorem tax rate."

Report of Mao's Illness Is Denied By ROBERT LIU TOKYO (AP)—A Red Chinese official in Peking today denied reports that Mao Tze-tung is seriously ill. "Chairman Mao is in excel- ent health. I just saw him yesterday," Liao Cheng-chin, a member of the Chinese Communist party's Central Committee, told a correspondent of the Japanese news agency Kyodo. The Kyodo correspondent reported that other authoritative sources in the Chinese capital said Mao is in good health and attended a high party meeting Sunday. Mao. 71, has not been seen in jublic since April 13 when he received Wing Cmdr. Ali Sabry, an associate of President Gamal Abdel Nasser of Egypt. * * * The British government said Sunday it had received reports :rom Peking that the Chinese Communist leader may have suffered a stroke. The British statement, however, stressed ;hat the reports were speculative and were being treated as such. The British have a diplomatic mission in Peking under Charge d'Affaires Donald Charles Hopson. Reports have been circulating in Moscow and other capitals recently that Mao's health has taken a turn for the worse. These rumors appear to have originated with diplomats whose governments have diplomatic representatives in Peking. Pakistani newspapers said Sunday Communist Chinese Premier Chsu En-lai is due in Rawalpindi Wednesday for overnight talks with President Mohammed Ayub Khan of Pakistan. Chou will be en route to Africa for a tour. * * * It appeared unlikely that Chou would set off on a foreign tour if Mao were in bad shape. Chinese Nationalist sources in Formosa said they had heard nothing to substantiate the reports of Mao's illness. Observers in Tokyo said they doutoted that Mao's death would change Peking's attitude toward the United States or put an end to the quarrel with Moscow. Mao is generally regarded as the strongman and principal theoretician of the Chinese Communist regime. He led the Communists to victory over Chiang Kai-shek's Nationalists in 1949. Mao is chairman of the party but holds no government post. His position as the major source of Chinese Communist doctrine appears to the outside world to be virtually unchallenged.

Lone Civil War Survivor Is 124 JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — A Jackson Civil War historian believes that Sylvester Magee, a former slave who claims to be 124 years old, is the only surviving veteran of the Civil War. "He is actually the oldest civil war soldier," A. P. Andrews, founder of the Jackson Civil War Round Table, said today, "but there are no official records." "He fought for the Union at the siege of Vicksburg in 1863 — before they were supposed to put slaves into the army — tout when word got back to President Lincoln of the slaves fighting then, he put a stop to it." Magee's case came to light when Arlington Jones, a Hattiesburg attorney, had Andrews question him. Magee lives alone in a rundown shack in Hattiesburg without plumbing or electricity. Andrews, 54, who has written a number of unpublished theses on various phases of the Civil War and plans a Reconstruction book, said he was extremely sceptical before a two-hour quiz session with Magee. Andrews has memorized numerous details of the Mississippi campaign, from soldiers' paraphernalia to down-to-the minute times Union forces entered Jackson. He found the illiterate Magee knew those things, too. "It nearly floored me," he said. "It knocked me for a loop. "He described the fortifications at Vicksburg, how they were built, how they buried the soldiers. He would have had to have seen Jackson then, to have seen Vicksburg, and the battle of Champion's Hill." Andrews said he was positive of the truth of Magee's story of joining the Union forces at Jackson in May 1863 and serving at Vicksburg in the siege, being wounded twice there.

Gas Service Approval Pleases Clevenger WASHINGTON — Congr e s s- man Ray Clevenger (D., Mich.) today said he is pleased that the Federal Power Commission has approved the application of the Northern Natural Gas Company to bring gas service into the Upper Peninsula. Congressman Clevenger said, "This is a tremendous victory for northern Michigan. I want to join in honoring all of those who worked so long and very hard to bring natural gas to the Upper Peninsula. "The action of the Fed e r a 1 Power Commission will add to the resources of the Eleve nth Congressional District, and will mean a greal deal in terms of improving the economic climate of our area." THE WEATHER John J. Williams isn't letting up in his criticism of the handling of the Bobby Baker case. Appearing on the CBS radio and television program "Face the Nation" Sunday, the Delaware Republican said someone high in the administration ordered the Baker investigation ended. "I have never experienced such resistance," he said. "If the administration is not desperate, why do they go to such lengths?" Asked how much he thinks President Johnson has had to do with the conduct of the investigation, Williams replied: "So far as I know he had nothing to do with it." " Baker was secretary to the Senate majority when Johnson was majority leader. Baker resigned in the fall of 1963 after questions were raised about how he acquired a fortune on his salary as secretary.
