Friday, Aug, 9, 1963 .1.1 By LOWS CAMELS ttaltei Press laternattona! One hot summer day in 1877, the train from the east pulled into Dodge City, Kan., bearing a small, dignified man in top hat and tailcoat. He attracted curious looks and a few snickers as he climbed down from the dusty railroad coach), claimed his valise, and made his way through a crowd of roughly dressed cowpokes to the hotel on Front Street. If the onlookers had known who he was, and why he came to Dodge City. f hp< •voir'dn t lvive snickered. They'd have laughed out loud. Regard Five In Race ToHeadLWF By DICK SODERLUND HELSINKI, Finland (AP)-Two Americans, a German and a Norwegian were regarded today as the leading contenders for the presidency of the Lutheran World Federation. Delegates to the federation's Fourth World Assembly said, however, that the race still was wide open. They will be guided in the balloting Saturday by recommendations of the assembly's nominating committee. It reports today but the report will be secret. There was a strong movement for the re-election of the retiring president, American Dr. Franklin C. Fry. The move would be unprecedented and would require a constitutional amendment with provision for an interim president to serve for one year. The presidential term is six years. Others regarded as front runners were Dr. Fredrik A. Schiotz, president of the American Lutheran Church; German Bishop Fr>-ns r " "f Hann> n r, a former federation president, and Norwegian Archbishop Fritjov Brikeli. Some sentiment was expressed against selecting another American. But Dr. Fry. who was elected in 1957 at Minneapolis, is a popular figure here. Bishop Lilje, named federation president in 1952 at Hannover, also has a strong following. A leader in the ecumenical movement, he is one of the most prominent Lutheran leaders. The federation tradition of choosing a president from the nation acting as host to the assembly likely will be broken. Among Finnish names mentioned, Bishop Martti Simojoki was reported unwilling to accept because of other responsibilities and Archbishop Limari Salomies was considered too old. He is 70. Dr. Geraty To Address Adventists Dr. Thomas S. Geraty, associate educational secretary of the General Conference of the Seventh-day Adventists, will be the guest speaker at the Galesburg Seventh-day Adventists Church, 247 Blaine Ave. Saturday morning at 11. Dr. Geraty, who received his degree from Pacific Union College and University of Southern California, is a well-known Christian educator in Asia. He has been the president of the China Training Institute at Chiaotout- zeng near Nanking, and of the Mideast Adventist College at Beirut, Lebanon. He will report of the denominational worldwide educational system consisting of over 5,000 schools. During war years, Dr. Geraty was president, English department head and business manager of the San Yu Theological Seminary at Chungking, China. Rustling Continues KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) - Alligator rustlers have struck again despite a $1,000 reward posted for information leading to their arrest and conviction. Owner Owen Godwin has reported the third theft at Gatorland, tourist attraction on U.S. 441. Thirty-three alligators, valued at $420, were taken in the last raid. Godwin has lost 94 gators in three raids. After each theft, blood spots were found outside the gator pens indicating that the reptiles were probably killed before being removed. Dodge City in those days was proud of its reputation as "the wickedest town in the West" And it fully deserved the title. Front Street was about as wide open as a street can get. The saloons stayed open all night, and the houses of prostitution did a booming business. Any cattleman who got tired of liquor and sex could find a high-stakes poker game to keep him amused. Gun fights and wanton killings were almost as common, in actual fact, as TV Westerns would have you believe. The one thing that Dodge City didn't have — and didn't want- was a church. Ministers Left Quickly Several itinerant preachers had ventured into the "Babylon of the West" but all of them had left precipitately, at the invitation of the townfolk. The little man in the top hat may have thought of all this when he boldly signed his name in the hotel register: "The Reverend Ormond W. Wright." The Rev. Mr. Wright was a field representative of the Presbyterian Board of Home Missions in New York. He had not come to Dodge City to conduct a few preaching services and flee for his life. His audacious purpose was to plant the cross of Christ firmly and conspicuously in this citadel of Satan. He had come, in short, to build a church. The incredible fact is that he did it. He even managed, in time, to make deacons out of Bat Masterson and Wyatt Earp. "Why this man succeeded where others had failed remains a historical mystery," said Presbyterian Life magazine this week, in an article paying overdue tribute to the little-known preacher. Actually, it's not such a mystery. Old histories of Dodge City record an incident which took place shortly after the Rev. Mr. Wright's arrival, which made a tremendous impression on the gun-toting cowboys and the women who entertained them. A prostitute had been killed by a stray bullet during a saloon brawl. A delegation of dismayed and drunken cowboys went to the preacher's hotel room and awakened him with loud knocking on the door. They told him what had happened, and asked him to give the luckless girl "Christian burial." Performed Funeral Service In those strait-laced days, most ministers would have huffily rejected such a request. But t h e Rev. Mr. Wright did not. He performed the funeral service, reading over the girl's grave the Gos- pei account of Christ's tenderness toward a woman taken in adultery. This act of compassion seems to have established a rapport between the prim-looking little preacher and the rough men and women whom he had come to serve. The Rev. Mr. Wright soon began to hold religious services in whatever quarters were available to him — usually a saloon or dance hall. He was able to tell the Presbyterian Board of Home Missions, in his first official report, that he had 13 regular members ot his congregation The board sent word that it would contribute $450 - a whop ping sum in those days — for the construction ol a church building, provided the local residents would raise a matching sum. It was taken for granted in New York that it would take HIP Rev. Mr. Wright a year or two to obtain his half of the building fund. But the word got around Front Street that Preacher Wright needed $450 to build a church. The hat was passed in the saloons and bawdy houses, and on one roaring Saturday night, the whole sum was contributed, with a lew dollars to spare. And that's how Dodge City got its first church.
