Audrey nas been using fen Is of magic to present Biblical truths for the past nine years, is known in many sections of the na- ticn as the "Mrs. Houdini of the Bible. 1 ' Officially, the trim, 23-year-old brunette is half of the Moody Bible Institute's famed "Mr. and Mrs." evangelism team. While husband Mike preaches the old- fashioned gospel, she uses more than S3000 worth of trick equipment to make it as Interesting as IJossibte. An orange tree which appears mysteriously from a hollow tube is used :o print up the fruits of Chrisliai living — love, joy and peace. 60-Second Escape A GO-second escape from a wooden box, which has been nailed shut and then bound with ropes. Illustrates "how sin imprisons us but through the power of God we can be set free." And how "the world passeth away and the lusts thereof" is simulated by a vanashing canary. Audrey planned to become a doctor, but interrupted her studies to take a temporary job teaching chemistry and physical education in her home town of Met- tlcr. Ga. Midway through her first year. Mike came to town to conduct a revival meeting and she and her pupils were required to attend.

Rubber Pad In Kyes Perhaps the most mystifying stunt Is the one in which Audrey tapes a rubber pad over her eyes, puts on a black hood, then drives alone through traffic. This one never faits to mystify, especially where policemen are concerned. In fact, the |xxs- sibtllty of receiving a traffic tickel has become the trick's greatest haz- j ard.
