I bad an amunlng experience the other toy. I wanted to *ee bovv a mechanic wan doing witb my car so I ju«t dropped by the garage, At I walked In the door, be bad tbe telephone re. eeiver in bii band and wai juit beginning to dial my number! HU jaw dropped a bit and tben we both had a good laugh. I batten to nay that I tlon't claim that any supernatural or p«y» chio force was at work in order to bring about such an occur- rtuice; it was just a coincidence. However, my Bible t»IU me that similar occurrence* DO happen between man ami bis ttod if they are on speaking terms. Isaiah say«, "And it shall come ta pass, that before they call, 1 will answer; and while they are yet •peaking, I will hear." The reason that more of us don't get answers to prayer is that we haven't tbe slightest notion that God U really going to answer. Prayer ta most people is mere form. A frantte sea captain one* asked Hudson Taylor to pray fo» wind. "All right," «ame the ealta auswey, "rai*e your wilt." Reluctantly the captain did so, pretesting that he was waking a fool of himself. Taytor Urgaa to pray and in Less th»u an hour the sail* fiu»d. That's helming prayer.

Shnrtleff Elects Student Council After a week rife with thundering* electioneering the campaign for Shurtleff College student council offices ended up like any other smoke-filled room political operation. Two candidates for Ihe presidency In their final speeches at chapel Monday withdrew and asked that aH their friends support Gene McElroy, which caused him to slide into office lik<! a greased palm into a glove.

Peter and Paul 1 * Hall will be men who are currently playing the tltte role in real .life as fathers of Marquette High School graduates who have recently been married, or are soon to be married. Guests of honor on Thursday evening will be T. J. Fleming, Louis Hesse and Irving Plchee, while Henry V. Boehl and L. J. Prullage will occupy scats In "Father of the Bride" row on Friday. The hilarious and touching comedy in which these fathers will see depleted many of the current events in their' own lives, derives its success from the accuracy with which it reflects all the "tribal rites," as the play has it, that attend weddings In our society. Originally It was a best-selling novel by Edward Strecter, a New York banker, telling of his own trials and- tribulations in the role of that forgotten but essential man, the father of the girl about to be married. The novel was later turned into a sensationally successful movie, starring Spencer Tracy and Elizabeth Taylor as the father and thp bride. It is one of a number of instances where the writer has scored a big hit by telling of his own very real experiences. Eichorn spoke to them and explained the use of various pieces of equipment. Following the talk the Cubs and some of t-he fathers were driven back to Horace Mann School to continue the meeting. The long ladder truck bearing about 30 boys and a half dozen adults caused little excitement as it drove through Upper Alton. One adult said, "A woman looked out the door and waved but that was all," At the meeting various awards we're made. Billy McAdams, who is 11'today and eligible to stej up to Scouting, was awarded his bear badge, and gold and silver arrows.

Beheze is a flight engineer for the airlines. The crash was on his regular run although he works alternate days with another engineer and Monday was his day off. The air officer telephoned his parents about 3:30 a.m., several hours after the plane plunged into the bay and exploded as it approached .for a routine landing.
