Twenty-five persons were received in the church during the year, which has meant more to the church perhaps than any other. It was this year that the new parsonage and church were completed at a cost of $148,000, Half ol U>*t sum has been puld. In listening to the reports, members found that $28,000 hud pawed through the hands of the church In 1949.

Clark rniscd up from the back seat and Inquired what was going on. Hawkins replied that nothing had transpired, and Clark accused him of having Illicit, relations with "Mildred." Hawkins stated that. Clark pointed a gun at. him and threatened to kill him. Hawkins seized Clark's wrist, with his left hand and with the other grasped the barrel of the gun. "The weapon was discharged and Clark slumped forward." "I thought at the time," Hawkins testified, "that, he was trying to get the gun which had fallen to the floor of the car. I dived over the back of the seat and got the gun and told Mildred, 'It's all right, I've got the gun now.' Then I noticed the car door open. Mildred was gone. I ran after her. I could not. overtake or find her. "I returned to the car and switched on the light. What I saw turned mo deathly sick at my stomach . . . Finally, I got back Into the car and drove around, after determining that Clark was dead. I wanted to find the girl, for she was the only witness to tho shooting, nnd then turn in the body. When I couldn't, find her, I drove "to the side'road and left the body. Then I continued to try and find 'Mildred.' I stopped at a tavern In the country and went up to ho window and looked In.

Army engineers still kept close watch on the flooded areas In the Midwest and South. They patrolled a stretch 158 miles long on the west bank of the Mississippi from Missouri to the mouth of the St. Francis, near Helena, Ark. No serious flood threat appeared on the Lower Mississippi, district engineers at New Orleans reported. Army engineers watched the Mississippi at. Cairo, III., one of the danger points. It was expected to crest at 55.5 feet. Army engineers have said if the waters stay below 57 feet the 212-square mile Birds Point-New Madrid spillway probably will not be* flooded. Some 11,400 residents of the floodway already have left their homes after engineers warned It might be necessary to open the front-line levee near Charleston and flood the area. The flooding would ease pressure on Cairo and other more populated areas along the river. Some 8000 their lowland and 3100 others have been evacuated. * The flood threatrof the Wabash river at Vincennes appeared ended and the army and Indiana National Guard units were to quit work.

NEW YORK, Jan. 20. <M — A government prosecutor today likened Alger Hiss to Benedict Arnold, Brutus, the devil and Martin T. Manton, a federal jurist convicted of "selling justice." Speaking measuredly In a deep voice, Assistant U. S. Attorney Thomas F. Murphy told a federal court jury in - his summation it should contfjct Hiss oh the basis of "the Immutable documents" in the case. Hiss, former high State Department official, is on trial for the second time on charges of perjury. His first trial last summer ended in a jury disagreement. Tall, mustached Murphy pointed to the piles of government exhlbr\ which the government claims Hiss passed to WhltUker Chambers, admitted former courier for a Soviet spy ring. "They don't depend on anybody's memory, 1 ; Murphy said. "They have been here 11 years. No one has altered them." Hiss and his wife, Prlscllla, appeared calm as Murphy addressed the Jury. Both the defendant and his wife were dressed in grey, the same color they wore yesterday. Jury deliberations are expected to begin late this afternoon, after the Federal Judge Henry W. Goddard delivers his charge to the eight women and four men on the jury. For five hours yesterday, the Jury heard the defense blast away at asserted "Inconsistencies" In the government's case, WhltUker Chambers, tht key accusing witness, was pictured as a brazen liar with a "dishonest, bad hope" of framing Hiss.

To Keep Them Informed Flinn pointed out that, under the State Department's present policy, all officers of foreign legations are required to take leave In the United States every 2-3 years in order that they can be fully conversant with the changes that have transpired in their own country. It is equally important for officers serving abroad to be able to explain the U. S. as it is for them' to accurately report to the U. S. government events occurring abroad, he said. Th* Flinns saw their first television broadcast two weeks ago .upon their return to the states. This Is an example, Flinn remarked, of one of .the changes that can take place in a short period of time and, though they may not be startling to the citizens of the country In which these changes occur, they are quite apparent and sometimes amazing to a native who has been away several years. These changes not only include new designs and gadgets and other physical things, but there are noticeable changes also in the thinking of the populace about domestic and foreign events, Flinn noted. 4JH Federation Holds Meeting Near Troy EDWARDSVILLE, Jan. 20. — The leadership training school and the square dance set for the coming Sports Festival were discussed by members of the 4-H Federation, Tuseday evening, at Carl Rlnkel's home, near Troy.

It was found In the raided garage. 3—The cord and tape used by the bandits in trussing and gagging five cashiers and guards in the Brink vault. Police concentrated on a search of boats along the New England shoreline because of the proximity of the sea to Brink's garage and the possibility that one of the holdup men was a sailor. They said the type of knots used to tie up the vault employes indicated at least one of the robbers had nautical experience. The holdup men also wore navy pea- jpckets. A top executive of the insurance company covering the stolen funds disclosed that had the robbers arrived two days later close to $10,000,000 would have company's vaults. been In the East Junior Carol Stttwelt, Bob Me.
