But every community had its taber- nacle, a place in pre-aircondi- tioning days for worshippers to gather in some comfort for the summer revival of Christian faith. The tabernacle was a wooden skeleton with wooden benches, all turned a weather gray. A part of one side was walled to protect the piano from a blow- ing rain which might come in revival season, those hot weeks between the end of grain harvest and the beginning of cotton-pick- ing- The floor was a layer of sweet- smelling .straw laid to keep down dust raised by feet made restless with too many words from the visiting preacher. On delightful occasions a puff of wind would come at just the right moment to fill the soloist's open mouth with hay and dirt. The congregation was lighted with electric bulbs which dan- gled naked from the rafters. You left islands of vacant seats un- der the lights because they drew bugs. Even so, there was a post- service ritual at home, floating insects out of ears with warm olive oil. The worship was meaningful, the Christian experiences won- derful. But extra-curricula hap- penings sometimes spiced taber- nacle proceedings. An old preacher tells of a re- vival he held at the old Haskcll tabernacle. The pastor had told him about a fellow, a good man, but a cusser. If he ever showed up, the pastor asked, get in a few words against taking the name of the Lord in vain. The fellow showed up one night, the preacher got the cue and he worked in some words on blasphemy. He worked in a lot of words on the subject. After the service the Cusser came charging down the aisle, hand made into a fisl. The preacher hid behind the pulpit for the Cusser looked 10 feet tall. The Cusser came on, thrust out his fist, opened the fingers and dropped into the preacher's hand a five-dollar bill. "Best blankely-blank sermon 1 ever heard." he cussed. Dr. W. 0. 'Bill' Beazley, Har- din-Simmons official, was one time leading music at a taber- nacle revival. The preacher was a hard worker who preached to everybody, in front of him and behind him. The fellow was preaching away one night on Pilate's "trial" of Christ. "And what Pilate the preacher de- manded, looking about. He turned all the way around to the choir and boomed the answer, "Go get me a pan of He was looking right at Bill. And, obediently, Bill started to rise. To go get the man the pan of water he seemed to want. "Sit down; you a breth- ren grabbed Bill's arm. "He's only John Womble, Paymaster company executive, has a re- vival story his mother tells. It was in the days of the wagon and the locale of the brush arbor. When the babies had been watered from jar and lulled to sleep by the preacher, parents deposited them in the wagons nearby to clecp it out. One night as the worshippers worshipped some teenage boys were busy. They moved the ba- bies, this wagon to that. After church everybody went home and in every home possessed of a baby frantic cries rent the air: "That's not "Where's my So everybody hitched up teams, climbed in wagons and alarted taking the "wrong" ba- bies to the right house. Instead of going hack to the arbor, everybody went to every- body's house and it was day- break before all the howling ba- bies were unscrambled, reports John who may have been one of the babies.

This would mean that the win- ning party could form a workable government only with the cooper- ation of the Social Credit party, which scored strong gains in Que- bec Province at the expense of both the Conservatives and Lib- erals. A new election probably will be held within a year With only 27 western districts undecided, the Conservatives had won 106 of the 265 seats in the House, the Liberals had ,89. the Social Credit party 27 and the New Democratic party 15. One Ontario seat will be filled at a special election in July. A candidate for it died during the campaign. A total of 133 seats are needed to form a government without the cooperation of other parties. It is customary for the governor general to ask the party winning the most seats in Commons to form a government. This is not mandatory, however. It depends upon which leader is able to work out Hie best arrangement with one or more oi the other parties. In 1957 Diefenbaker formed a minority government and ruled for nine months until the Conserv- atives won their sweep in a new election the following year. Since the Social Credit party is a right-wing group, il would ap- pear natural for Diefenbaker to seek its cooperation. On Ihe oth- hand, if the Liberals were called upon to form a government they probably could count upon the Socialist New Democratic party. During the campaign, the Social Credit party dwelt heavily on the idea of a national dividend to paid with money printed "to equate money supply with national production." Prime Minister Diefenbaker won a personal victory in Prince Al- bert, Sask., which the 67-year-old Conservative leader had repre- sented in Commons since 1953. Most of his Cabinet also came back in. Liberal leader Lester B. Pear- son also Was returned from his Algoma East District of Ontario. But the leader of the New Demo- cratic parly, T. C. Douglas, was beaten in his bid to unseat a Con- servative in Regina, Sask. TO BE NEW LEVINE'S STORE retailer will double downtown space Levine's Leases Kress Building WEATHER V.
