Halsell of Route Z, Rising Star, writes a correc- tion on tabernacles. Long before electricity, she reminds, there were other means of lighting. "There were the kerosene torches, from which the bugs were repelled because the flame would singe their wings. Then came the C o 1 e m a n lanterns which gave a little more light. Even then there was lots of( 'singing on the credit' be- cause it was hard to see by tuch." Mrs. Halsell says she knows whereof she speaks on tabernac- les (and some of her stories are rich) because her husband was a teacher preacher for a number of years in this area. "We took an early retirement (to a stock farm near Cross Plains) so we are not 'old' but we have had eo many ex- periences in our field that it would seem to require an aw- ful long time to get in so much living." And the sessions at tabernac- les, she reminds, were "pro- tracted meetings." Mrs. Lou Cannon, secretary of the oldtimers' association which Is a part of Stamford's Texas Cowboy Reunion, is making a collection of reunion badges worn by some oldtimers who during their life took part in the big annual event.

AUBREY WHITE dies suddenly Wife of Former Paslor Here Dies Mrs. Aubrey White, 49, wife of former pastor of the Grace Methodist Church here, died un- expectedly Sunday night in Ta- loka whife teaching a young peo- ple's class, it was learned here. Rev. White was pastor of Grace Methodist during the early 1940s and held pastorates in other Methodist churches in the Abilene area. Among survivors are her hus- band; three sons, Ronald, a stu- dent at'McMurry College, and a son, Will, in Houston, and Dwain at Tahoka. Mrs'. White was visting in the borne of Mr. and Mrs. M. W. Smith here Saturday night after visiting the son in Houston. ropean Common Market is likely :o succeed, reliable American in- 'ormants said. Rusk's view took shape after talks in Paris and Bonn with ?rench President Charles de Gaulle and West German Chan- cellor Konrad Adenauer. Both were understood to have assured Susk that British membership in the six-nation trading communi- ty will not be vetoed tor political reasons. Britain's entry into the Com- mon Market would lead to pro- found changes in the shape and form of Allied political, strategic and economic policies. In particular, qualified inform- ants said, it would set the stage :or evolution of a European nu- clear owned, manned, manufactured and con- tolled. Rusk arrived in a U.S. Air Force Constellation from Rome on :he sixth day of a swing .through key capitals of the European Al- lies. He hustled to the official resi- dence of Lord Home, Britain's for- eign secretary, where Macmillan met him an hour before a work- ing dinner. In a reference to his wide-rang- ing talks with Allied leaders in Europe, Rusk told newsmen at the airport: I think that when final deci- sions are made we shall be to- gether and will have strengthened the Atlantic Community, strength ened NATO and strengthened Eu- rupe, and the Tree world will be the beneficiary." Among the major topics at Sun- day night's discussions: American and British attempts to dissuade Indian Prime Minis- ter Nehru from buying and as- sembling Soviet MIG jet fighters. The two Allies are ready to offer world's biggest neutral and facilities to se- cure supersonic fighters needed (or self-defense.

Rusk is understood to have arrived with a stiffer American policy. Informants saic he advised Adenauer he was drop- ping any idea of proposing some kind of international authority to run the air, land and water lanes into the divided city. The offer could only be revived if the Russians, for their part, agreed to drop their demand for the withdrawal of Allied garisons from West Berlin. Macapagal Urges Action WASHINGTON President Disdado Macapagal said Sunday the American govern- ment has spurned a commitment to the Filipino people and it is up to the United States to "do something to arrest this deteriora- tion" of relations. In a television interview re- corded in Manila and releasec here, the Philippine leader spoke bitterly about the vote of the U.S House of Representatives reject- ing a War damage bit for claimants in the Philip- pines. He was critical also of the U.S. foreign aid policy in Asia, anc said the Communists are winning the battle for people's minds in Southeast Asia.

The charge from rebel Maj. Si tokhtar, commander of a central Algerian was the first mown public reference to the Jnited States since the Moslem National Liberation Front began :ampaigning for next Sunday's referendum. The meeting at nearby L'Arba vas the largest and most enthusi- astic of a series of rallies staged o tell Moslems to vote "yes" for Algeria's independence from 'ranee. Across Algeria, in cities and vil- ages, Moslems painted trium- phant signs in green and red: "Al- independ- ence and liberty." Teams of youths tirelessly painted signs and pasted posters m the walls. Most were in French Because few young Moslems know low to write Arabic in a country ;ept under French rule for 132 While the FLN campaigned, its chief antagonist, (he European Secret Army Organization, >ressed its scorched earth drive n the western metropolis of Oran, determined to resist to the end. Oran's City Hall, already badly lamaged by terrorists, was set afire again by an exploding drum if gasoline. Several upper-floor iffices were burned out. Four chools also went up in smoke and the secret army set fire to social security office. The Oran Association of Labor Unions spurred the mass exodus if Europeans to France by call- ng on all workers there to leave as soon as possible. In Algiers, where other thou- sands of Europeans hoped to get iut, the day was quiet. Beside the FLN, six other newly orrned parties are registered lo ake part in the campaign for the July l outcome of which will be independence. About four million voters at iOO polling stations throughout the country will be handed a white ballot saying "oui" (yes) and an orange ballot marked "non" to the proposal for Algerian independ- ince in cooperation with France. None of the legally approved >arties called for a "no" vote. Europeans opposing independence vearily agree that nothing can slop the process now. It was doubtful that the Euro- peans will vote in large numbers. Authorities are searching in vain 'or attendants to man the 70 poll- ing stations in the European quar- ters of Algiers. In Oran, it appeared unlikely :here would be a vote in the Euro- pean city, separated from Mos- em areas by barbed wire and gun emplacements.

This refers.to the July 1 referendum when Algeria will vote on dependence. (AP Wirephoto) C. 8.
