The cast gond-linmoredly allowed Abadie 10 have his say, I hen went on with the show In tlie applause of a packed house in'the. TliCiMre tie Porlc-Sainl-Marlin. A group of younger Salvation Army officers decided Abadie's proles! would give Ihe Army an mil-of-dnte, Purilan image. Headed by Capt.

I thought this was one of the purposes for building the Colise- um. I had really looked forward to not worrying about rain and wind this year. A. Dr. Bill Beazlcy, rodeo director, says the H-SU rodeo facilities are considered Ihe best in the country as far as colleges go and it would be a shame not lo use them. Also they want lo keep the rodeo connected with Ihe college and feel more sludents will allend if it's held on campus. Expenses are held down by having it at li-Sl. ralher lhan renting Ihe Coliseum. Then loo Ihere are senlimcnlal reasons; the arena was built as a memorial to one of the originators of Ihe Rodeo, Carl Myers. But Dr. Beazley said tne Coliseum iflea makes sense when you think in lerms of bad weather, and if it rains he said he II probably wish ihey'd done just that. Q. 1 heard a mother say (hat her son couldn't go lo college after he came home from (he Army because the fi.I. Rill didn't pay enough. How much docs U pay tor the boys lo go (o college? A.

The current so-called "G.I. Rill" is somewhat different from Ihe original hill following WW H, and Korea, which paid a portion of Ihe money lo Ihe college. This bill authorizes direct payments lo the veterans and they must pay their own educational expenses, The amount being paid before Ihe recent increase would be approximalcly the equivalent of a scholarship nor year.

The, references were in the 39 articles framed by tile -Church of England in 1563. The resolution, proposed by 3 theological study commission headed by Dr. Albert C. Ouiler ol Perkins School of Theology in Dallas, Tex., does not rec- ommend revision of the lan- guage o( tlie historic articles. ft docs call for Methodists to keep in mind tliat the articles were formulated in "a time of reckless strife." In adopting the resolution, the conference noted "Ihis implies, a! the very least, our heartiest offer of good will and Christian brotherhood to all Roman Calli- olic brelhern in the avowed hope of a day wlicn all bitter mem- ories will have been redeemed by Hie gifts of the fullness of Cltrislian unity."
