JjjUgSDAY. FEBRUARY 18, 1032 Clad in Biblical Robes, Mrs. Martin Littleton Says Crisis Near. BY PAUL HAKKISON NEA Stnlee Writer MANHASSET, N. Y.—"The worll is fast approaching tile greatest crisis li has ever experienced, and will fhortly witness the jjrcalesl event that has ever occurred. "The event will b2 the Coming of Christ." Tiny silver bells on a bracelet tinkled emphasis to the words of Mrs. Martin W. Littleton. The wife of ti prominent New York attorney wore a flowing yellow robe, a white, silver-banded licadshawl, and red slippers. The chair in which sire sal wus inlaid almost Mildly with mother-tof-pearl, arfi command;*) a room crowded, with rich, colorful treasures of the Holy Land. She looked like Hie hifh priestess of some mystic cult. She Is, she declares, only an humble and devout Bible student who has been able to surround herself with the atmosphere appropriate to her researches. A Son Remembered Widely-traveled, socially accom- plishoJ, Mrs. Littleton Is the mistress of a pretentious Long Island estate. Two years ago she set about building a private studio and library at some distance from her old colonial house. It never was intended as a shrine, she declared, except in the sense that it was dedicatel to the memory of a son, Douglas Littleton, who Icll in France during the World War. But she designed it lo the reminiscent 01 old Palestine. The one- Jtory flat-roofed building Is surrounded by a wall, the inner sides of which are covered with frescoes of Holy Land scenes, executed bv an artist brought over from Jerusalem. Biblical inscriptions arc everywhere, on the wall and in the house. A colorful zodiac covers the ccilins of the main reading room. Ihero are rugs and rare tapestries from Damascus, a brass bnlzier from ths palace of the governor of Jerusalem, bottles of water from the River Jordan, scores of ancient relics and several thousand volumes of religious writings, old and new. K«ps Daily Vigil From the time, about a year ago. 1 • Hut she first admitted a few friends, the fame o! the library has spread. Thousands of visitors, even ministers, priests and. rabbis with their congregations, have come to Manliassrt to see the treasures Mrs. Littleton .has collected during her 20 years of travel and Bible study. Today, In her robe and head shawl, she keeps open house every afternoon. Some of the visitors remain to discuss with ,vrs. Littleton the sensational theories- she has developed regarding our religious Ufa and times. Many of l):«m hold witli her opinions. She lectures sometimes, but she does not exhort She is n student, she reiterates, and not a preacher. This pleasant-faced, soft-voiced uoman takes her Bible literally from hell-lire and brimstone to heavenly streets paved with gold Her interpretations of parts of the New Testament have convinced her that the Second Coming of Christ is imminent —perhaps tomorrow ir.oniing, pcrlmps next month but soon. Sets Prophecies Fulfilled "The whole world is wailing for It," she said, "although the world itself does not generally realize v/liat is about to occur. Tins depression is just another link In the chain of evidence which is fulfilling the scriptural propliesico. "Don't think I'm just raving. It's all in the Bible. If people don't believe as I do then they just don't believe in the Bible. Look at that (ARK.)

Wars and earthquakes, famines and floods, all point to the day, Mrs. Littleton believes, when CluisL will return, not as the Lamb of God, but as tho world's Judge. Then she foresees seven years of tribulation, the rise of an anti-Christ anj the battle of Armascclon before Christ returns again, this time in the flesh, to rule the world during its promised 1000 years of peace.
