WEDNESDAY, MARCH 23, 1955 BKYTHEVII.I.R (ARK.I COURIER v/ws PACK SEVEN Scots Throng lo Listen to H!!y Graham But- Glasgow Press Gives Evangelist Mixed Reception GLASGOW, Scotland I/D — Billy Graham is winning a mixed reception from Glasgow's newspapers but the American evangelist is picking the Scots in for his evangelical crusade. His second meeting last nignt drew another capacity 15,000 persons to Kelvin Hall. As at the crusade opening Monday night, hundreds filed down the aisle in answer to Graham's call to "make your decisions for Christ." "One out of every four persons in this great hall will be dead In 10 years from now if statistics run their normal course, and they will," the evangelist told the throng of worshipers. "There may not be lime for another call like this, so come now." Reaction Varies Newspaper reaction to Graham s first appearance in Scotland ranged from hearty approval to opinion that his platform manner was not for the Scots. Some papers sent their drama critics to his first meeting, some their religious editors and others their entire editorial staffs. These were some of the comments: Angus Shaw in the Glasgow Eve ning News: "I find his supercharged evangelism almost naive and vaguely embarrassing. His gospel salesmanship has a gloss that dazzles and dazes, but it is strangely dehydrated compared with the warm, down-to-earth humanity of the churches of my country." Glasgow Evening Citizen: "The great audience . . . arrived much the mood they would be in for a concert. They left grave and thoughtful. Billy Graham clearly got home his message." Glasgow Evening Times: "Many who have pondered over the crusade will be relieved to learn that It is not at al! a dramatic meeting. It is a service which some at least will remember as intellectually uninspiring and possibly because of their own conjecturing something of an anticlimax/' HARMONETTES — This Blythevllle trio will be an entry in the ninth annual Osceola Klwanis Club minstrel at the Gem Theater In Osceola on April 7.

Texans Want to Sell Their Beef DALLAS W—Even it they have to use comic books and be-bop to Jo it. says a cattlemen's lender, the livestock men are going to teach America's teen-agers to eat more beef. Jay Taylor, president of the American National Cattlemen's Assn., spoke here yesterday before the 78th annual convention of the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Assn. He said he was shocked at the eating habits of U. S. teen-agers. Only one fourth of the 15 million are getting the minimum requirements for energy, growth and health, he said. He told of a beef-eating expert ment he tried at his home. "Our children invited their teenage friends over for steaks in the yard. There wasn't a one of those wasp-waisted, sweet-smelling girls who couldn't eat nearly a pound ol beef." And he went on: "We don't know how we can best reach the teen-age mind — maybe comic books or be-bop. But we must assume our responsibility.

Tram Wreck Blame Laid To Switch OREER, S.C. U?\ — Police today sought to fix responsibility for a thrown switch which yesterday sent a freight train plunging off a coal chute here, killing two crewmen. Capt.

The dead were Charles Heard, Greenwood, engineer, and D. M. Campbell, Spartanburg, conductor. -A tank car toppled onto the diesel engine, crushing the cab and killing the crewmen. Fowler said the switch definitely was not supposed to have been thrown. There is a possibility of criminal prosecutions, he said. Greer Fire Cruel H. B.
