Monday Evening, June IS, 1962. I,GGAKS* LIBRAE IN CHICAGO Graham Draws Record Crowd CHICAGO UPI) - Evangelist Billy Graham Sunday ended his 18-day crusade in the "town that Billy Sunday couldn't close down" with a rally which attracted 116,000 persons in 95-degree heat. It was believed' to be the largest religious revival meeting in U.S. history. The crowd, which filled Hie 92,000 permanent seats at giant Soldier Field and left other thousands standing inside and outside the U-shaped arena, boosted Ihe 18-day attendance figure to 703,000. More than 200 persons were overcome by the heat and Gra- Unused Glasses Needed Those old or unused eye-glasses which many people have lying around the house are urgently needed by the poor the world over, according to Pat Kroeger, of the Kroeger funeral home, Kroeger has volunteered to collect discarded eye-glasses for distribution by New Eyes, Inc., a non-profit, non-sectarian organization, whose sole purpose is to help provide better vision for those who cannot afford to buy glasses themselves. Logansport residents who wish to help this worthwhile cinise may bring their discarded glasses to the Kroeger funeral home, where they will be wrapped and sent to New Eyes. According to Mr. Kroeger, New Eyes, founded in 1832 by Mrs. Arthur Terry, collects eye-glasses, broken jewelry and pieces of precious metal. The work of sorting, testing, overseas packaging and acknowledging the hundreds of thousands of pairs of glasses received each year is carefully done by volunteers in donated quarters. "All metal-framed glasses and jewelry are sold to a refinery," Mr. Kroeger said, "and the redeemed cash is used to purchase new prescription glasses for the indigent. Unbroken (re-usable) plastic framed glasses are tested and sent abroad to medical missions and charitable agencies that are equipped to dispense them properly." Kroeger s'aid that metal frames in any condition, unbroken plastic frames (with or without lenses), sunglasses, artificial eyes, cataract lenses and soft cases are all needed by New Eyes. New Eyes is a unique organization, Mr. Kroeger said, because it has never solicited money. "Since its beginning, New Eyes has helped nearly a quarter of a million people by converting items useless to the owner into vital sight for others," The non-profit organization was conceived by the late Mrs. Arthur E. Terry, of Short HiHs, N. J., when she was working as a volunteer in a Red Cross depot in New York City during the depression. She realized that many of the jobless were without work because of impaired vision and had no money to buy glasses. CLUB OWNERS CONVINCED JACKSON, Miss. (UH)-Nighl- club operators along Mississippi's Gulf Coast apparently are convinced Gov. Ross Barnetl's "no gambling" ultimatum is on the level. "I had a man check this weekend," Barnett said Sunday, "and he reported all gambling closed down." National Guardsmen under Barnett's orders, destroyed about $35,000 worth of gambling devices in raids on three coastal clubs last week. ham's aides sent out a special plea for doctors and nurses to care for them. Some 2,300 marohed forward at Graham's invitation to make "decisions for Christ," bringing the total for the crusade to 17,310. Graham appealed to the assembled thousands to "keep burning in your hearts the spiritual fires my Chicago revival has ignited. Today should not be thought of as the end of the crusade, but only the beginning." He warned Americans they are "not right with God" and foresaw a Rome-like decline for the U.S. if its citizens fail to repent and reform. "The signs that we must make a choice are all about usu. The historian Gibbon said Rome fell because of its high divorce rate and its taxes. You know about America's problem, about the movie stars who seem to believe that the more husbands or wives they have the more of a box office attraction they will be," he said. Graham said that a nation "never falls until it starts to decay at the center, at the home, the very core of our society." He warned that churches "must repent of their faithlessness,, their strife, their worldliness, their bickering, pride, malice, backbiting and their intolerance of each other." He said Americans, in a "mad craze for pleasure," spend more on tobacco than on education. Graham spoke out against high taxation. "The average American is now so used to deficit spending he cannot possibly realize what is happening." ills message was similar to (hat which he delivered in the earlier appearances at the 35,000-seat McCormick Place convention hall, and at meetings with street gangs on Chicago's South Side and inside the walls of the Illinois State Penitentiary—"Repent, and by faith, receive God." John F. Solmos Withdraws From St. Joseph Race SOUTH BEND, Ind. (UPI)-St. Joseph County Democratic Chairman Ideal Baldoni announced today that John F. Solmos, president of the board of county commissioners, has withdrawn as the nominee for re-election. Baldoni previously requested the withdrawal of Solmos and Prosecutor Patrick Brennan in connection with an alleged bribery case. Solmos was named by Ray A. Nusbaum, a Walkerlon funeral director, as the contact man to whom he paid $5,000 to escape being charged in a Lake County traffic case, Solmos later said he gave the money to Brennan. "I fully realize my mistake is fodder for the opposition to be used not only against me but perhaps against others of my party who may be charged with my error by association," Solmos said in a letter of resignation from the party ticket for the November election. "I fully understand the difficult problem that confronted Solmos," said Baldoni. "The Democratic party appreciates his wise decision." Baldoni indicated the 'Democratic County Committee will pick a successor to Solmos for the November election. Solmos, 53, North Liberty, has been a commissioner since 1854. His current term expires Dec. 31, 1963. Brennan termed the Solmos story "utterly false and without foundation." MANAGEMENT OF 2 PAPERS COMBINED SAN FRANCISCO ('UPI)-The Hearst Corp.

However, Markuson said the .wo newspapers could not be irinted in either of Hearst's present San Francisco plants. , "The present daily, circulation of the Examiner is at an all-time ligh," he said.
