The Virginian For Custom Draperies From $1.99 Yd. Labor Free Across from O.T.'s military region, left Tizi Ouzou with his staff and some troops. Algerian army officers said the dissident units set up roadblocks east and south of Tizi Ouzou but did not interfere seriously with the movement of government con voys. Government troops closed all exits from Tizi Ouzou, 70 miles east of Algiers, and searched all cars and motorists leaving the area. Armored troop carriers mounting machine guns were parked in the city. The troop commander, who declined to give his name, told newsmen, "for the time being, everything is calm. We receive orders directly from Algiers." Has Big Force Ou El Hadj commanded some 8,000 to 10,000 men, most of whom served under his orders during the war for independence. Government officers said a part of this force is forming guerrilla units in the stvp Kabylie ranges. The government officers described the movement as a putsch and said the situation was serious. Ben Bella took personal command of the Defense Ministry with the departure for Moscow of Defense Minister Col. Houari Boumeddienne, considered a strong man in the government. Previous reports said Boumed­ dienne was canceling the trip which was set up to work out details of a 50 billion franc ($100 million) loan from the Soviet Union. Berbers in the Kabylia area took to the streets Sunday shouting, "Down with Ben Bella!" Meanwhile an underground group calling itself the front of Socialist forces (FFS) proclaimed all-out war on Ben Bella's one-man rule. Mothers to Man Intersections Near Weston An adult guard program was started today to help patrol boys in guarding busy street intersections near Weston School. On a recommendation by the Knox County Safety Council, 18 parents have agreed to perform the task on a monthly basis. The intersections have been patrolled by students, but traffic was too much for them to handle alone, according to Harry McClurg, council president. McClurg said students will still assist with flags and directional signals, but mothers will patrol traffic. Intersections to be manned by parents are Grand and Mulberry, Day and South, Aliens Avenue and Main streets. Similar programs have been started at Silas Willard, Mary Ellen West and L. T. Stone schools. CHOOSE YOUR BULOVA from a special selection Siyled for young tastes, priced for young budgets.

He was identified as Claude Clark, 54, railroad section gang worker currently residing at Keokuk, Iowa. The body was found near Shokokon landing by two Burlington men Saturday about 10 a.m., and taken to the Fisher Funeral Home in Stronghurst. An inquest-will be held Wednesday at 8 p.m. at the home of C. R. Mcllor, Henderson County coroner. Medicine Is Clue The only identification found on the body was a bottle of prescription pills from Galesburg, Vincent Carlson, Henderson county sheriff said. Clark's Galesburg doctor told authorities the dead man was from Keokuk, Carlson added. This led to getting in touch with relatives from Warsaw, 111., who made positive identification, the sheriff said. Leo Staff and Floyd Lewis, Burlington, discovered the body near Shokokon landing, about a half mile below the tip of Big Island on the Illinois shore, Carlson reported. Staff and Lewis were hunting and fishing in the area. Clark apparently had been in the water for a couple of days, Mellor said. Drowning appears to have been the cause of Clark's death, Mellor added. He was wearing a shirt and slacks when he was found. Survivors include two daughters and one son.

PI/ • • lift 96 North Chambers St. GALESBURG, ILLINOIS ESTABLISHED 1922 SILVERSMITHS #8 North Prairie Street BEHIND THE SCENES—Black Hills Passion Play make-up artists prepare local extras for appearance in production which ends tonight at Galesburg Senior High School auditorium. Two dozen local men and women rounded out the cast of 41 professional Role of Christus Has Side Effect By ROBERT LeMAY Josef Meier, who plays the role of the Christus in the famed Black Hills Passion Play, finds the philosophy of the actual story plays a large .part in his private life. "I like to think it has a beneficial effect," he said in an interview this nro r n i n g. "I find it tempers one's character, and makes me ~~ realize how much humanity needs this philosophy for a full, productive life." He has taken this role about 7,500 times during his life, beginning when he was 28 years old in Germany. He is the seventh descendant of his family to play the part. Two presentations were given at Galesburg Senior High School Sunday. There was a student matinee this afternoon, and final performance will be tonight at 8. Tickets may be obtained at the door. The history of this play begins in 1242 when a tableau wass tag- ed on Easter Sunday morning. As the years passed, more were added, including the Crucifixion on Good Friday, t h e Triumphal Entry on Palm Sunday, and the trial scenes. Dialogue Added Then in the 17th Century the dialogue was added in Low German, the villagers took the parts and the parts were combined. An ancestor of Meier took the Christus role, and tradition had a father teaching his son the part. A mother also taught her daughter the part of Mary. Meier brought the play to this country in 1932, translating it into English. But this was not the only difficulty he faced. The original version takes some six hours in Germany, but Meier was aware that American audiences were not acclimated to such a long formance as Europeans are. Thus he cut it to 2¥i hours. In the six-hour performance, the play moves from the fall of Adam and Eve, through highlights of the Old Testament pointing toward the coming of Christ. Whenever a prophecy is made of the coming, this is stressed, and the New Testament fulfillment is shown. Passion Week Remains But in the American production, only the final seven days of Passion Week are shown. This fits nicely into the overall plan, Meier said. The group presents the play every day in the Black Hills from mid-June until Labor Day. The elevation there is about one mile above sea level, which makes the weather ideal for such an undertaking. Meier said the troupe averages one missed performance every three years in the Black Hills. Winters are spent in Lake Wales, Fla., with the play given en route there at various towns and cities, such as being done in Galesburg. In Florida, the vegetation (palm trees and more tropical plants) gives a more authentic setting for the play, but Meier admits his heart is really in the summer home in South Dakota. The turnover is very small. His wife has played the part of Mary since 1937, and other members of the cast have long tenures also. He gets applications during the years from prospective players, and when a vacancy does occur, he then contacts them. Next year he will travel to Blood Center Operates Wednesday, October 2 REMEMBER THE DATE October 2 THE TIME -1:30 to 6 p.m. THE PLACE 1640 N. Henderson St. Galesburg, III.

Meier is the seventh generation of his family to play the role and made the translation of the U. S. play from the original German. Germany to select one of several nephews to understudy him, with the thought that this nephew will someday take the Christus role. Meier has a daughter, a dramatic soprano, who is studying opera. But the daughter is also being groomed for the role of Mary.
