The newspaper charged that Garnett tried to encourage African students to "leave the Soviet Union and forget about the interests of their people." Izvestia said that "nobody had any doubts that he (Garnett) was an agent of American intelligence" during a previous tour of duty in Dar es Salaam in East Africa."

She just watched tlie rain. It was something she had not seen for two years. Up until Friday she w^as blind. Mrs. Boese is a religious woman. She knew she would see again—even when doctors said she never would. Mrs. Boese said she had seen a vision of Christ, and felt this was a sign her vision would be re- tiuTied. "I knew because of the way he smiled at me that I would see again." She said she had the vision immediately after being examined by eye doctors in Oklahoma City. Three doctors had just told her she would never see again. "I was totally blind at the time." she said describing her vision. "My daughter was leading me down the hall. I saw this light coming towards me. It was a different kind. It glowed and all at once there was Jesus standing there. He held his hands up in front of him. He didn't say anything to me. I knew he didn't want me to come yet. I was ready." She happily recounted the moment her sight returned. "I had gone into the bathroom about 5:40 a.m. I suddenly started seeing things- toothpaste, a comb, towels around. There were so many things. I felt that I had my glasses on and thai glasses certainly must have improved. I felt and I didn't have any glasses on. "I combed my hau- for 30 minutes," she said. "It sounds vain, but two years is a long time not to see your hair." Mrs. Boese suffered a brain hemorrhage April 16, 1963 while living in Sayre, Okla. Blindness struck instantly. For two weeks she saw nothing. Then she was able to see colors and people if she touched noses witli them. But until Friday that was all.
