1 £1 Sunday, June I, 1969 94* -? M M P ii« LI n Some 7nen are remembered for their careers, others merely for some incidental or off-hand act. John Montagu, the 4th Earl of Sandwich, spent 40 infamous years in British politics, The World Almanac notes, but his name became a household word after 1762 when he supposedly gambled for 24 continuous hours without eating except for slices of cold meat between pieces of bread. CVipyrifflu (9 I960, N'l-wspiipt.T Hnli-rpriso Assn. j One Year i* l i F. J | Makes A r{ Difference WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - S. Sgt Clearnon Faulkner came home from a year's Air Force duty in Thailand Thursday and rushed right past that shapely little wife, Betty, he was looking for. Mrs. Faulkner and a companion had to run the sergeant down, and even after they captured him, he was a little skeptical. His bewilderment was understandable. Mrs. Faulkner, 32 years old Tuesday, now a svelte 160 pounds, weighed 340 the last time he saw her. Then her measurements were 55--B-68, and she wore a 32'A dress. Today her figure was 38-30-39, and her goal is to shed another final 23 pounds. The sergeant never had seen her smaller than 240 pounds, her weight on their wedding day. He didn't get much help from his excited mate as he stepped from the plane. She was wearing sun glasses and standing with Miss Jacque Stringer, a re porter for the Wichita Beacon, wearing a matching pair of sun glasses. The sergeant didn't give either a second glance, and they had to move pretty fast to nab him as he rushed into the terminal. He had been forewarned that she wasn't the big girl she used to be, but even so —160 pounds? Unbelievable! After the introductions, the dazed comment was simply: "I can't believe it! 1 can't believe it!" He didn't answer when Miss Stringer asked him how he liked his wife. "You have to remember he was pretty groggy to start with," Miss Stringer commented. "He had been flying almost continuously for 40 hours, and hadn't had any sleep since Sunday. With all of the time changes around the world he had enough to make him wobbly. "He really was in a fog, what with lack of sleep and his wife's shape." After her weeding Mrs. Faulkner climbed to 340 pounds when she saw her husband off to the Far East last year. She wore a raincoat trying to hide her figure and decided she had to do something. Simply cutting down on eating didn't seem to help, as her friends told her it would. Her doctor found she had a thyroid problem and began a treatment that brought her weight down to its present level. She was so excited of the impending reunion with her husband that she couldn't sleep last night. Leaving their two grade- school age children, Sharon and Pam, with relatives she got to the airport at 6:30 a.m., long before the plane touched down. Her plans? "Well, right now they're going to have a long weekend at a local resort," said Miss Stringer. Black's Pharmacies We Am C!o*«d On Sunday B*cauM W« Are All Going To Church.

In this age of advanced technology and far-flung communication, youngsters are better informed, geographically, politically, scientifically and economically than at any other time. No rogue generalities, no sugar-coated probabilities will satisfy them. They want the facts and straight-to- the-point answers. That's why your church recognizes the importance of having trained and devout leaders and teachers for its youth programs. Graduation time salutes these people who give so much of their time and training to the Christian development of our children. Their dedication and devotion reflect their love of God in their ministry to the men and -women of tomorrow.
