Noe said today that he now believes he is only one step away from "a perfect existence on the spiritual plane of life" and that .he will reach that plane when he gives up the wine . and wafers of holy communoln. Thu dean, entering the 19th day ol his fast in nn attempt to prove thai he can be immortal on this side of the grave, has declined to discuss thai phase of his experiment. He admits there is "another step" but rc/uses to say what it is or when it will happen except that he anticipates taking It "in the next two years." Since -January 2, when he began his fast, liquid has passed the dean's lips in two forms. One is the communion wine which he takes three limes a week. The other is in tho. form of Ice cubes which he places in his mouth to counteract the burning feeling caused by dehydration. He Insists, however, that nonp o the water from the melted ice cube reaches his stomnch because he ejects it from hl.t mouth. The dean, according to friends conceived this idea of immortality on earth about 10 years ago. Since tha time he has been depriving him self of physical comforts. First h gave up meal, then other foods unti --at the beginning of 1038--he was living on cashew nuts and oranges During 1037 he lived on oranges alon nnd nt the beginning of this year h gave up oranges. The friends say that abandonmen of the consolidation of communio now Is the only thing standing bo tween Dean Nbc and his ultima! goal. In addition lo the physical burde that he hn.t placed upon himself b his fast, the dean today worricc about Illness In his family. Sitttn on a couch in the living room of th deanery last night, he said that Mr No*, who collapsed Just M he wa about to leave for Knoxville to al tend a church convention, was abou the same. He talked in a firm voice. H! clerical coitumc was neatly pressed Some of his acquaintances think h has weakened considerably in th last four days; others believe he stronger. Apparently it depends o what hour of the day you see him since he naturally is stronger aftc resting than he Is after pcrformin his duties as priest of the Episcopa Cathedral of St. Mary.
