The dean sat in a tiny, dim room where the light came timidly through the curtains and put blackish spotchcs in the caverns of his face. Yesterday he preached a sermon, shook hands with his parishioners as they left the Episcopal Cathedral of St. Mary of which he is dean ana celebrated' communion, taking wine . and wafer. Despite that tiring day, he consented to an interview, consented reluctantly because he does not'seek publicity and thinks that no one--reporters, scientists, physicians or even fellow clergymen can glimpse the light that beckons him along the course he walks. The inevitable question whenever a man begins a fast is: Is he sincere; is he taking nourishment unknown to other persons? Dean Noo answered: "Nobody who has seen me can say I am taking food on the sly. I look ghostly. You can see that. The test is, will I be afraid? WiU I be afraid and turn back? No, I know I won't. I've been through all of this. I ·worked it out potentially, but not actually. Now I have to experience it. I know I can do it. I want to say a word for my wife. She has never mentioned food to me. She has been cooperative." Where does he get the strength that enables him to shake hands, with a firm, strong grip, with 600 people; to carry on the hundred of duties that the priest of a large church must perform? "It is like going through a fire," Dean Noc said, "the flrc ot divine love. Like Moses and the burning bush, the flre burns but does not consume. It only destroys Impurities, refining the pure gold of character. I am working toward a world philosophy. I can't go into that now, but it will cover everything." Special Sluslc at Mt. OHvc. Rev. W'lliam J. RItchey, pastor of the Mount Olive United Brethren Church, will preach on "Saving Faith" at tonight's meeting in the series of revival services. There will be special music by a mixed quartet. Alex Dils Dies.
