Recollections of friends lost behind the iron curtain in Bulgaria were shared yesterday by Miss Mar>' Haskell in a talk before the Mission Study club of the Country Club Congregational church. Miss Haskell, who is 81, was ordered out of Bulgaria by the Communists last February after having served the Congregational church as a missionary there fifty years. She is a sister of Henry J, Haskell, editor of The Star. Tell* of Brave Pastor. Her speech was an informal one, illustrated by snapshots and postal cards. She told the story of Stoyan (the name is fictitious), a Protestant pastor who displayed such high ctmrage in a Communist detention camp that he caused a top-ranking Ccmimunist official to belieYe in the power of God. Stoyan was forced to stand for long periods inside a chalked circle surrounded by spike.s. Miss Haskell related. When he* fainted and fell forward onto the- spikes, he was propped up again.' He endured hardships with fortitude and -clung fast to his Christian faith. The Communist official, a boyhood friend of Stoyan, later told Miss Haskell that the spike wounds on the pastor’s head reminded him of the wounds caused by the crown of thorns. “I had not believed in Chris- ________________________ ___ said. ‘T believe in STUDY A VIDEO SITEiDEATH~ IN CAR CRASH illustrate that WRITES PEACE BID TO STALIN—Miss Icie F.

OLD iiiíT al 23ni-Toppina:, Sought, by Midland Broadi-asi« iiig Company. It is not uncommon, even among happily married couples, for the wife to take an occasional swing at her husband, Mrs. Juanita Kring Simon, 39, Gashland, testified yesterday in the circuit court. Mrs. Simon seeks a divorce from her husband, Albert Simon, 38, of 7301 Jarboe street, a former $12,000-a-year sales manager for an independent meat packing company in Kansas City, Kansas. Simon withdrew cross-petition for divorce shortly before the hearing began yesterday before Judge Thomas J. Seehorn but is contesting his wife’s action. I.OVC Unger* On. Both parties testified that they still love one another. However, Mrs. Simon added that she wanted a divorce because Simon, she asserted, is more devoted to his parents and brothers than to her and the couple’s two adopted children. Simon said he did not want his wife to obtain the divorce. Attorneys said there wa.s only a slight chance of a reconcilia-i !tion. j ! Mrs. .Simon testified that -Simon failed to provide for the two children and that he was responsible for a $4,000 mortgage on property at 5957 the Paseo she owns. “During all the time you were married how did you treat Albert?’’ Horace W. Kimbrell, a defense attorney asked in cross- examination. A—I used to bake him cakes, pie{5 and candies. Q—Did you ever strike him? A—No. Q—Did you ever swing at him without hitting him?
