But the moM difficult task IS putting each bell back in its cor rect place on the table. Anjthef misconception about bell ringers comes- from radio listeners who ;hink the bells are tapped with lammers. To watch the Rev. Mallough In practice, one becomes aware of the skill he must possess to control so many jingles. He tries to practice dally to keep limber which is necessary to get the right twist to the right tinkle so the vibrations will blend Into the right melody.. tThe bells were assembled in 1942 and possibly from the last batch of metal which could be purchaser before the war. Ordinarily his wife accompanies him with the bells but she. was unable to be in Woot River because of the illness of her mother in Seattle. Young and tall, the Rev.

CO. 550 EAST BROADWAY come many problems In transporting the " bells which weigh' 300 pounds altogether.. Once he flew to the interior of Alaska while his wife followed by boat with the equipment. Her boat "broke down" and she had to fly too, which meant sacrificing personal belongings so th'e bells could be curried n her suitcases because of the weight limit of the plane. While Rev. and Mrs. Mallough were In Europe -last year they decided to take a short cut to Fin- and by crossing Soviet occupied territory. When the train arrived at the Russian border, It was halted and a Russian engine hitched to it. Doors %yere locked and windows hoarded' so the trip was like "riding through a tunnel," which led the Rev. Mallough to believe that even if the Russians had nothing to hide, they make a traveler suspicious.' The prevalence of the English language is rather remarkable everywhere you go, according to the Rev. Mallough who recalled B great number of college students, attending his services when he was in the Scandinavian countries, These students were, recognized ' a special type cap they wore and their presence at the meetings amazed the local pastor until he quizzed some of them and found they had , come to hear- English which they were learning in college. Used Interpreter* Interpreters were used in all Rev. Mallough's foreign appearances. In Brussels, Belgium, both a. Flemish and French interpreter were on hand and by the time, the Rev. Mallough paused to let each t ranslate to the congregation he had forgotten almost what he started to say. The 'Rev. Mallough has been an evangelist for the past 14 years, having studied at. the Los Angeles Baptist Seminary. He is a member o£, the Assemblies of. God movement, but carries his evangelistic work to various churches. The Rev. M. M. Brewer is pastor of the local Assembly of God Tabernacle.
