No other event—circus, sporting spectacle or horse show—has ever been able to lill Madison Square Garden for such an extended period, but Ihe turnout for Graham's sermons shows no signs of letting up. Attendance has averaged is,200, almost capacity, since the start' a total of 501.000. Nearly 16,923 have stepped forward lo begin what Graham calls "a new life of joy and peace in Christ." What was the reason? It was his: Kven though one side claims nrisdiction in a case like Girard's. t can. if it wishes, yield (hat jur- sriiclion lo the other.

The decision lo let (lie Japanese have Girarri was made by the administration "in (he conduct of foreign affairs ant! the military defense of the United Slates and as such is a political decision not subject lo judicial review." That's another way of saying the decision was malic to retain good relations with the Japanese, who arc aroused over the case. The United Slates lias ail agree men! with the Japanese thai if an American soldier violates Jap ancse law—but docs it in "performance of his duty"—the United Stales will have jurisdiction. This .means he normally would be tried by Army court-martial—not in a [Japanese court. The Japanese claimed Girard's action was not in "performance of [his duty.'' The American Far Kast iCommand argued, and still docs [lhat Girard was acting in "performance of rluly." The Japanese [insisted on Irving Girard for Ihe jkilling. , This di.spule went on for months.
