Page A-14 THE NEWS, Frederick, Maryland Friday. Majr ». HE BOUGHT A CHURCH ON HIS DAY OFF-- John J.Bell, 33-year-old Philadelphia father of four, and his wife, Rose, look over agreement to purchase, for $8,200, the church in the background. Bell, who attended an auction with an eye to buy a row home as an investment, wound up buying the church property which formerly had been used as a recreation center. Bell said he was as disturbed as others when the property went on the auction block. (AP Wirephoto) Richards Film Presented By MONICA MAIN Staff Writer The Frederick Lions Club enjoyed a unique program during its weekly Thursday noonday meeting. The program was "philosophical" in nature rather than the usual information address given. Robert Horman of State Farm Insurance Company presented a film entitled, "Life's Highest Goals." The film featured Bob Richards, referred to as the pole vaulting preacher or the Rick-o-shay Reverend. He opened the film by comparing "what happens on the gridiron to what happens in life." You must struggle on the field he said, and struggle through life. "We live in an age of mediocrity," Richards stated, "but in sports mere can be no mediocrity. In this age of passiveness- sports force you to be active. I was shocked to see a full page advertisement of a new exercise machine with the caption-'no need to exert any effort, just lie on the machine and it does the exercising for you."* He complained that the individual is overlooked today. "In the time of the socialized, organized, bureaucratic man, you still must look beneath and find the individual. That is what lies beneath the surface of society- the individual. The only way we can change society is to change the individual." Richards emphasized the idea that "life is portrayed put on a playing field. Id sports you are willing to face obstacles. When a fullback bucks the line he doesn't call a committee meeting-- he acts, he fights, be falls, but he learns." Richards composed a list of "musts" in order to compete successfully in "the greatest game of all-life." He noted as the first point, "Keep your eye on the highest goal and follow through," "It is the keeping the eye on the goal that is the most difficult," he added, "n?s that follow through. You just can't go through the motions. You've got to give it all you've got and follow through." The second point brought out was the expectation of frustration. "There will be frustration. There's just no way to avoid it. There is still the guy that slaves at a task until perfection yet still loses by one point. In striving a man is learning the greatest lesson in life-- there can be victory in defeat, as well as defeating victories. Moses never got to the Promised Land, David never saw the kingdom united, and Jesus hung on a cross, but out of these frustr rations came the dreams of men." "The thirdly, and most important, suggestion," Richards pointed out, "is the ability to 'hang on.' You've got to hang on even if only by a shread ol desire. Johnny Unites is the best example of one man's hanging on. He was turned down by several schools. They wanted nothing to do with him. Finally the University of Illinois accepted him. He was fifth on a list of draftees, finally to be dropped. He heard the Colts were going to 'build a champion team' but they needed a quarterback. On a 2 cent postcard, Unitas wrote-'Just give me a chance, coach, I won't let you down.' They returned a 65 cent phone call and two years later he was nominated the outstandtag Professional Football player in the world. If you get beneath the statistics of victory and defeat," Richards concluded, "You'll find the real secret is in 'hanging on.'" Following the film, Dr. A.Aus- tin Pearre Jr. explained the de- concerning a possible fu- organization is considering pur- 3Stag7 or providing partial funding, of a new piece of equipment needed for emergency work at Frederick Memorial Hospital. The equipment, which sellsfor $4,000, is a combination of a monitor, electrocardiogram, and a deflbulator. The portable machine will be available to floors "herepatjente have just been released from high risk conditions as the emergency room or intensive care unit. "This equipment is an absolute must," Pearre stated, "and we intend to purchase it with, or without, the Lions help."

MIND7IG DEVELOPED-After 20 years of re- related to man than any other experimental search, the Hormel Institute of Austin, Minn., animal, but the stumbling block to using them has developed miniature pigs like this one which is inspecting a desk top at the institute. Scientists found that pigs are more closely for research was size. Normal pigs weight around 240 pounds, while the minipigs weigh only 40 pounds. (AP Wirephoto) Tiny Pigs Available For Scientific Use AUSTIN, Minn. (AP) - Mini- pigs are little piggies going to market in increasing numbers, but not to become pork chops, roasts or sausages. The small swine are the product of 20 years of selective breeding \by' researchers at the University of Minnesota's Hor- SPA'PEllfl IC H1V E ® _,, mel Institute. Now the researchers have enough to sell some to other laboratories for use in medical research. Pigs, more than almost any other experimental animal, have digestive, glandular, respiratory and blood circulation systems similar to man's, an much the same kind of skin. Bu size has been a stumbling bloc to using them for research. Enter the minipig, whic weighs about 140 pounds full, grown. Normal adult hogs ofter top the scales at four or fiv times that weight.
