But questions arise: Why wasn't there a question and answer session somewhere in the six-hour lecture? Why were no tape recorders allowed? I know Dr. Crane's explanation but I'm not satisfied with it. Why was no one given an opportunity to challenge Dr. Crane in front of his audience? I believe Dr. Crane is afraid someone will raise a valid question that might sway his audience against him although Dr. Crane Is a superb debater and apparently has an answer ready for nearly any question raised. Why wasn't any documentation for Dr. Crane's Communist conspiracy theory presented? Why isn't the documentation even available? Shouldn't anyone who says that the American newspapers are Communist controlled be able to produce evidence other than his suspicions and innuendoes? I attempted to send for a transcript of one of his speeches (which are also available on tape) so I could analyze it. Instead of a transcript or an explanation for the absence of one, I received a brochure'informing me that could purchase the tapes for $20. My request for,information concerning a transcript was completely ignored. Could it be that Dr. Crane doesn't want his speeches to be analyzed? Why does Dr. Crane expound the Ten Commandments but overlook their purpose as explained in the New Testament? In the summary of the Ten Commandments we are told to love God and to love our neighbors. Thekey word id loce. The Bible makes It clear that the Christian is not saved by his mere obedience to the law, but the law manifests the guilt and sin of every Christian and non-Christian. But the love of God is demonstrated through the law for although the law shows every man is a sinner, God's love has made it possible for every sinner to be forgiven and saved through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ—even the murderers such as the Apostle Paul (see Romans 3:20-21). Throughout the New Testament we are told that the objective of the Ten commandments is to show the guiltiness of every man and to demonstrate God's forgiveness and love (see Timothy 1:15 and read the entire New Testament). In building his case Dr. Crane cites the Old Testament laws for capital punishment: "An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth." This statement is clarified in the New Testament (see Exodus 21:21 and Matthew 5: 38-48). I wonder if Dr. Crane and those that endorse his theories eat pork chops? That, too, is forbidden by the Old 'Testament commandments (see Deuteronomy 14: 7-8 and Leviticus ll;4-7, 27). What happened to Dr. Crane's lesson on logic? He correctly pointed out that you can prove anything if you begin with a false premise. Then he goes on and passes along "facts" whose premises are questionable if not false. Two final questions which explain the purpose of this letter: Why did Dr. Crane's audience seem so willing to accept all that he said without challenge? Dr. Crane is brilliant. He may be a genius. He is an outstanding orator. But no man, Including myself, has all the answers, nor are all of man's suspicions true although it seems to me that Dr, Crane's theory is full of suspicions. Why did Dr. Crane's disciples that I talked to allow themselves to be so convinced of his Communist conspiracy theories when not one of them (that I ' had talked to) had seen any evidence? One of them even patted my hand and assured me, "Don't wor- ry, boy, he's got all the evidence." I understand that a Hawarden couple's daughter had been radicalized and hippified at the University of Iowa. Further, I understand that Dr. Crane led her to Christ. I can only say, "Praise the Lord," but let's make sure we continue to worship God and not Dr. Stuart Crane. I already know that the Crane disciples will accuse me of playing right into the hands of the Communists by challenging Crane's suspicions. God help me if I'm wrong, and may God forgive you if you are not right. Roger L. Van Ommeren Vermillion, S.D.

The thrill worth while is the one that comes out of yourself. "Foreign aid, Senor?' Finger Food Feasts...Teen Blast Teens are more convivial than .people. Assemble more than two . . . and there's a party afoot. Next time there's a teen blast at your house, provide the youngsters with fondue fare. They'll love the informal fun of dunk cookery. Doughnuts are a teen favorite, and that's just what you do the dunking with. Chunks of fresh doughnuts are speared on a fork, dipped into a hot Chocolate Sauce or hot Raspberry Sauce. Both are a snap to make, goofproof for the inexperienced cook. The chocolate mixture just requires chocolate pieces, butter, milk, corn syrup and vanilla. Prepare the sauce in the top of a double boiler, heat in a fondue pot over Sterno flame at serving time. Use sterno solid canned heat or liquid, depending on what your fondue units require. The canned heat is safe, smokeless, odorless. The liquid fuel burns with a clean blue flame and has a pleasant light lemon scent. When youngsters are cooking safety is always a factor, and the Sterno liquid is non-toxic and has a spillproof safety cap. The mellow Raspberry Sauce is easy to make, too. It combines raspberry jam and jelly, orange juice and grated orange rind and you can make this right in the fondue pot. Since Dunkin' Doughnuts can get a bit messy, especially with teens or younger children in evidence, provide the guests with packets of pre- moistened towelettes for easy handwashing. Wash 'n Dri comes in handy individual packets and the towelette cleans hands in seconds and dries in seconds.

Stir in milk, corn syrup and vanilla; stir until smooth. At serving time, heat in small fondue saucepan over low Sterno flame. Spear pieces of doughnuts on fondue forks and dunk in sauce.
