His Air Force jet, fogged out of its regular landing place at Andrews Air Force Base in suburban Maryland, made an unusual landing at Washington National Airport. Lt. Col. James B. Swindal, pilot c* the presidential plane, had no difficulty bringing it down. Kennedy reached Washington at 11:12 a.m. after an hour and 57-minute flight from West Palm Leach. He went to the White House by automobile. By the time Kennedy left Florida he was feeling less discomfort from head congestion and earache. These developed during his return from the trip he and Mrs. Kennedy took into Latin America last weekend. Navy Capt. George W. Burkley, assistant White House physician: and Dr. William Y. Sayad of Palm Beach, who has attended the Kennedy family there for a number of years, checked the President before he left this morning.

The snow was also blamed for a Watson semi-trailer truck, driven by Jess Stevens of C ouncil Bluffs, sliding: into the blade of a snowplow on Hwy. 61 near Flint Creek, tipping and blocking the highway for five hours. Arrow shows how truck body was twisted by its cargo of 35,000 pounds of aluminum. No one was seriously hurt. Tile bodies of Lt. David E. Blackwood, son' of Mr. and Mrs. Dale Blackwood of 400 Cedar, and Lt. Edward L. Shokes of Charleston, S. C., were recovered from the wreckage of their two-place trainer plane Monday. The men disappeared while on a routine training flight from Miramor Naval Air Station, in California, last June 23. Wreckage of the jet plane was sighted from the air by Lt. John Baptiste of the Indio, Calif., sheriff's office. Baptiste, his father and brother hiked to the site, in Upper Berdoo Canyon, where they were joined by a rescue party which took the bodies from the wreckage. An extensive aerial search was made for the two fliers for some time after the crash. A memorial service for Blackwood was held and a memorial scholarship fund is being established.

Tshombe left Ndola, Northern Rhodesia, with U.S. Ambassador Edmund A. Gullion. Adoula flew from Leopoldville, accompanied by a team of his ministers and U.N. Undersecretary Ralph Bunche. U.

There has been only a few mishaps, he added. “When you consider about 15 to 20,000 cars pass the intersection at Central and Washington every day, we have had a small percentage of mishaps,” he explained.

Yours, HawkeyeDegenerate Earth Saddens Qod; He Is Lonely For Man The Christmas story unfolded on earth—and in Heaven. Naturally enough, the parts which occurred on earth have become dominant in Christian literature —because there were human witnesses to the birth and life of Christ. But Christian theology emphasizes that the events in this world were the fruition of a Divine decision which transcended both earth and time. This is the first of four articles dealing with the great Christmas drama from a bold, new viewpoint: as seen not from earth, b u t from Heaven. The narrative drawn on the allegory and metaphors’ which often are the language of Scripture. Although in part conjectural, it is based on Biblical allusions; the words and attitudes are those attributed to the Divinity by the prophets. By George Cornell AP Religion Writer IT IS a splendid realm. No borders confine it. No night falls there, and the silence sings. The far away is near, and a moment never ends. Nothing is •tatic. Nothing wears out. Nothing is divided. All is growth and life and love. It is, to human eyes, an invisible empire. It is the first and the last, the source of every reality, the spirit-kingdom of God. And He was grieved. “My people know Me not. . . they have no understanding.” Before Him, around Him and from Him coursed the myriad hosts of the Elohim, the ethereal beings of that infinite sphere, angels, archangels, watchers and couriers of light. In numberless thousands times ten thousands, they shared that luminous zone, overarching time and space, within yet beyond the heavens where the birds fly or the stars swing, the “heaven of heavens.” “Holy, holy, holy . . The devoted harmonies poured continuously from the airy ministers, and they communed fully together, entering into the experiences of one another, with complete and felicitous understanding. Yet God was sore at heart. The Almighty, the Omniscient, the Author of all things, seen and unseen, was lonely for man. “I have formed him; yea, I have made him. . . precious in My sight. Yet My people have forgotten Me days without number . . . They have turned aside and gone away.” They were but a single kind, in all His manifold creation. Countless other worlds and estates remained united with the blissful fold, adored and adoring, at one with the springs of existence, declaring its glory. Anthems of Praise Files of cherubim and seraphim attended the divine establishment, and angelic legions served “His will in all places of His dominion,” among all manners of souls. Others raised anthems of praise in that crystalline orb whose currents flowed with the essences of life complete. “There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy habitation of the Most High.” Yet man, newly brought into the vast and varied divine procession, had abandoned his native vision of it, striking out on his own in selfish isolation, seeking to make himself preeminent. And God, with all His happy progeny, sorrowed for His prodigal — humanity. Spiritual freedom, that exhilarating crown, had its hazards. Others, like man, had by their choice cut themselves off from their moorings, alone and never content, distraught by their strivings to dominate. And God was anguished. “O foolish and senseless people, who have eyes, but see not, who have ears, but hear not. . . Everyone turns to his own course, like a horse plunging headlong into battle.” Thus had an even higher clan, the proud, lofty Lucifer and his angel cohorts, sought to make themselves supreme, and been forever exiled, to roam the abyss of malice, deception and conflict. But his revolt had been irrevocable, since no emotion or lack of knowledge, clouded h i s decision. His state and that of the angel horde that followed him was utter hopelessness, since nothing remained for them to learn. In their gloomy interim, they thus set out to beguile artless creatures such as man. Lucifer’s Haunt Man’s world had become the chief haunt of the baleful Lucifer and his crew, the “rulers of darkness,” often masquerading as “angels of light,” or hiding their own existence, in order to deny supernatural governance. After humanity fell into its benighted ways, God had been “sorry that He had made man on earth, and it grieved Him to His heart.” And yet He knew how “very good” He considered the earth and its inhabitants at their origin. God was resolute: “I have made them for My glory ... I have purposed; I have not relented nor will I turn back . . . For the mountains may depart and the hills be removed, but My steadfast love shall not depart from them.” Throughout the cosmos, grave concern was focused on the earth. Its couplings with eternity appeared bent and broken, wrenching loose into oblivion. “The earth staggers like a drunk man.” a doleful observer noted. “It sways like a hut. Its transgressions lie heavily upon it, and it falls and will not rise again.” Another onlooker, of terse expression, added: “It’s inhabitants are like grasshoppers.” Yet, among the pure, unspotted worlds that watched the tribulations of earth, there were some who yet saw hope for that confused and blustering globe, turning wanly in a lesser solar system. “God ... is from of old, working salvation in the midst of earth,” a sunny saint maintained. “He did not create it a chaos. He formed it to be inhabited.” Restoration Doubtful However, on the immutable scales of divine equity, it was hard to see how He could ever restore to His household a species that had willfully deserted it, that had become grossly unfit for it, and too densely self-centered to discern it, much less achieve it. What seemed absurd to the holy one, was man’s chronic blindness to his spiritual rudiments, to his mold in the divine image that equipped him to move toward that advanced mode of being. Instead of recognizing this basic component in his makeup, instead of understanding that each level of existence is variously visible or invisible according to the station of the viewer, man saw only himself. Across the circumference of the centuries and events, the celestial observers noticed the spiraling of vast conflicts on earth, wars and havoc, and the flaming burst of basic org nic power in the midst of men. “There, they are in great terror. in terror such as has not been," an indignant trumpeter proclaimed. “The nations rage, the kingdoms totter ... Lo, the kings assembled, they came on together. They are in panic . . . Trembling takes hold of them there.” The doleful one stared sadly. “The enemies are in tumult; those who hate God have raised their head. Every city takes to flight. They enter thickets; they climb among rocks. All the cities are forsaken.” The trumpeter went on. “Woe to you, destroyers. Woe to you who trust in chariots because they are many . . . Might will not save . . . Shudder, you complacent ones . . . The mountains melt like wax, before the Lord.” But then, as they studied the scene, t h e physical disruption was interfused and overlaid with a more penetrating element, clear, shining, unimpaired, continuing out of the past. Through the veiled links that bind and preserve the flow of time, the vibrant force on earth expanded and worked. What was it? How had it entered that midnight vale ’ “The salvation of God,” the saint breathed. “Truly,” the terse one said, “no man can ransom himself ’* (Tomorrow: A Decision on High) ;
