Jacobetti said, "Michigan has long been a leader in the implementation and construction of highways and expressways in the federal highway system, I therefore feel that in view o: the fact that the government does provide funds to pay 90 per cent of construction cost: and has not contributed any money toward the building of the Mackinac Bridge, that we here in the House urge the Congress and Senate to do so. "Furthermore, I sincerely fee with the cooperation of the peo pie in the Upper Peninsula who will write their congressmen and our senators in Washington urg ing them to take what steps are necessary to obtain the 90 per cent cost, which carries 1 1-71 across the Straits that links our two great peninsulas together.

Mrs. Florence Kangas' Gas Firm Opens Ashland Office ASHLAND — Northern Natural Gas, which has the contract 'or establishing the n a - tural gas pipeline from Duluth through the Ashland region and on to Marquette, has established its Ashland construction office in the New Knight Hotel, and it is expected that the construction contract soon will be led to the contractor. With the letting of the construction contract, the contrac- or will set up his own office at Ashland where such matters as employment will be handled. Office manager of the Northern Natural Gas office at the New Knight Hotel is Don Bourne, who comes from Waterloo, Iowa. Chief engineer of the en t i r e project is William Parker, also from Waterloo, Project co-ordinator over the entire line is R. K. Nickell, who is from Lincoln, Nebraska. About eight or ten inspectors will be working out of the Ashland office of Northern Natural Gas after construction is under way, and their reports will be filed here. When construction gets underway, laying of the pipe will be carried on about two miles behind the excavation, which will move ahead as rapidly as possible. Northern Natural expects to put in its main line this year. The Lake Superior D i s - trict Power Co.. which has the franchise for retailing the gas throughout its area, will then complete the work of arranging individual outputs, which probably will be done during 1966.

Therein I help make the New Testament come alive, for Jesus was a superb practical psychologist and psychiatrist. So I show how Christ used advertising strategy to recruit the crowds, and also employed polls of public opinion. He even tried "Socialized Medicine" and found it wanting. He tartly reprimanded his countrymen for their racial bias and picked the hero of his brotherhood example from the most hated race. By showing how our modern business, medical, political and sales techniques are rooted in Christ's excellent examples, I help revitalize the interest of many people in reading the Four Gospels. Mrs. Crane and I also dined with Rev. Schuller and some of his friends. Our table conversation shifted finally to one of the most acute problems now facing all clergymen, whether Catholic, Jewisn or Protestant. "Dr. Crane," a prominent layman began, "we find it more and more difficult each year to attain the goal In our Community Chest Drive. "That is also true with reference to Boy Scout campaigns, Red Cross, Cancer and similar worthy causes. "And it is even showing up in I our finance drives for the various churches! "For people say they are being taxed so heavily for state welfare and other relief programs that they haven't enough money to support private charities and churches." Well, that is a dangerous nation-wide dilemma! You clergymen should face up to the grim facts of what will confront America within the next decade!

And obtain salaries for pastors, music directors, choir, etc.? 'Dr. Crane," an atheistic debater recently argued, "if the state takes care of welfare needs, why should we have churches at all? "Russia is doing a good job looking after its citizens without ;he need for priests or other clergymen!" But there are several very sound arguments in defense of private charity. "The gift without the giver is bare," runs a truism that indicts governmental welfare! The latter is largely aimed at vote-buying or world-wide power politics to bribe small nations into an alliance for purely military reasons! Voluntary giving, however, is sense of brotherhood! Churches also get far better returns on their money than do state or federal welfare bureaus! The famous Peace Corps, for instance, does much good, but churches can do three times as much on the same money! And with purely brother hood motivation rather than ulterior political aims! Clergymen, alert America!
