Stock prices perk up af week's end NEW YORK (UPD— Stocks finished on a more optimistic note this h o 1 i d a y-shortened week and prices perked up from a four day slump. Prices opened the week's first session on a mixed note then closed lower. The same performance was repeated Tuesday. Wednesday's opening presented tiie same picture but be fore the noon hour steels had taken the initiative and moved higher, taking the rest of the market with them. Thursday's performance was good but somewhat stunted by the upcoming Good Friday hoi iday and the evening up of books which normally precedes a long week-end. Brokers were pleased by the revival of interest in steels and cUier cyclical stocks and the growing interest in the secondary shares and those which have not participated in the advance so far. They felt that as interest spread throughout the list it will help sustain the market. Most Brokers viewed the four day slump as a healthy sign. An advisory service went as far to say the fundamentally strong issues appeared to be refreshing themselves before advancing. Dow-Jones industrial average finished with a tiny gain of 0.92 at S15.91. Rails skidded 1.31 to 192.16 and utilities slipped 0.52 1o a new 1964 low of 137.76. Standard & Poor's 500 stock index tacked on 0.27 to 79.19. Volume amounted to 21.334,064 shares for the four days com pared with 27,206,798 for the five days last week and 19,349,340 shares in the same week last year. Of the 1,488 issues traded, 684 advanced, 269 to new 1964 highs whDe 632 declined, 142 to new lows.

Also In Color — Bob Hop* "A GLOBAL AFFAIR" Fun For All the Family Rusk rebuts Fulbright Cuba policy criticism WASHINGTON (UPI) - The debate over the effectiveness of the Umted States' Cuban policy mounted today with Secretary of State Dean Rusk's entry into the lists against Sen. J. William Fulbright, D-Ark. In a major Senate speech earlier this week, Fulbright, who is chairman of the influential Senate Foreign Relations Committee, siad Fidel Castro was a "distasteful nuisance but not an intolerable danger" to the United States. Rusk, who rejected Ful bright's contention that the ad ministration's poUcy of boycotting Cuba economically is failure, told a news conference Friday that "Castro is more than a nuisance. He is a threat to this hemisphere." Rusk said the Johnson administration will neither trade nor conduct "normal relations with Cuba as long as it main- tams its "military and political" ties with Moscow and continues efforts "to interfere in the affairs of other countries in this hemisphere." The secretary specifically challenged Fulbright's claim that U.S. efforts to persuade other countries to isolate Cuba economically have "been a fail ure." Rusk argued that though this isolated has not been "com plete" it has been "very sub slantial."

Holy Saturday was obsen'cd as a day of prayer in chiurches still shrouded in Lenten mourning. Pope Paul carried a wooden cross Friday night in the most imposmg of Rome's Lenten rites I procession to the Stations of the Cross in the ancient city. Looking out over the 1,800- year-old Colosseum, where early Christians were martyred, the pontiff spoke out forcefully against the "unjustified treatment" meted out to the church in many parts of the world. "The body of Christ is mor ally and heavily crucified still today in many regions of the world: the church of silence is still the suffering church, the patient church, and in many places, the siiffocated church," the Pope said. The pontiff appealed for peace but expressed pressimism about the possibility of achieving it through exclusively human ef lOTts. Too Risky Charles A. Lindbergh's mascot, was a kitten named "Patsy." Lmdbergh refused to take jit on his pioneering transatlan- Itic flight in 1927 because he felt it would be "too dangerous a journey to risk the cat's life." "Human efforts, through very noble and worthy of applause and support, succeed with difficulty in guardmg its (peace's) mtcgrity and maintaining it with different means which are not those of fear and temporal interest," he said. Pope Paul will say Mass on Sunday morning on a portable altar set up on the steps of St. Peter's before delivering his Easter message and his blessing to the city and the world.

The fliers' RB^6 plane was shot down over East Germany and their imprisonment had been protested by United States. By LOUIS CASSELS United Pres* International The Christian faith was found ed on the unqualified assertion that Jesus Christ returned to life after being crucified, dead and buried. Many people, including such noted theologians as Paul Til lich and RudoU Bultmann, find themselves imable to accept this as a literal statement of historical fact. Proceeding on the assumption that it is impossible for a dead person actually to rise again, they look upon the Resurrection as a myth or symbol of a purely inward, spiritual experience in which Christ's disciples be came convinced that he was still among them as a li\ing presence. This "demythologizing" interpretation of the New Testament has great appeal for people who want to believe that God revealed himself to man through Christ, but who are not prepared to allow that this act of revelation may have been accompanied by some extraordinary occurrences. The neo-Iibcral school of theology represented by Tillich and Bultmann has enjoyed such a vogue in recent years, especial ly among seminary students and young Protestant clergy men, that some laymen have gotten the impression that it is no longer intellectually respectable to believe that the Resurrection really happened. Makes Feelings Known Anyone who has this mistak en idea will find a good antidote in a new book by Dr. Markus Barth. Markus Barth is the son of the great Karl Barth, and a distinguished theologian in his own right. Until recently he was professor of New Testament at the University of Chicago Divinity School. He is now on the faculty of Pittsburgh Theological Seminary. In "Acquittal By Resurrec- Uon" (Holt, Rmehart & Wm- ston), the younger Barth points out that few historians question the authenticity of the New Testament accounts of Christ's death. Nor is there any real dispute over the fact — abundantly attested by the very existence of the church — that the disciples believed Clirist to be risen. The issue is WHY they believed it, or, to put it differently, whether their accounts of the Resurrection should be read as a mythical or factual account of their experiences. Barth says neither AieWpomt can be "proved" by purely historical research. "Faith stands against faith on either side ... the arguments proffered to disprove the' historicity of the Resurrection are at least as dogmatically prejudiced and fallible as the arguments to the contrary. For example, how can Rudolf Bult mann prove that . on Easter mommg nothing else happened but the birth of Easter faith in some disciples?" Event Not Fabricated Against Bultmann's hypothe sis, Barth firmly states his own conviction, "The Resurrection took place bodily, and not symbolically; really, not virtually; tangibly, not spiritually." It was a "unique" event in time and space, "watched by men of flesh and blood, not fabricated by hallucination." To treat the Crucifi-xion as history and the Ressurection as. myth is an absurd reading of'o« T.« the New Testament record, Barth declares. Anyone who reads that record must see — unless he is blind-^ ed by a dogmatic prejudice agamst "miracles" — that "for the BibUcal witnesses, there is no difference between the fae- tuality, reaUty, actuality of the Crucifi.xion and of the Resurrection events ... They possess the same historicity." "If the disciples were speaking solely of a voice that was heard by them, of a feeling that was formed in them, of a sense of mission that fell upon them with irresistible force, or of « private or communal cultic experience and vision—then their reports might stand on the same level as some mystics' mtuitions." But the disciples don't speak in such terms at all. They "speak of seeing Him, or touch- mg Him, or eating with Him, or of all these ways of experience combined." Over and over again, "they confront their hearers and readers with a concrete, this-worldly, material presentation of the reality and meaning of the Resurrection." WILLIAM G. MOORE. Publiiher.
