His hair, a mixture of brown, blond and gray, is wavy and curls up around his collar at the back of his neck. His handshake is deft and practiced without being overly firm. It's the handshake o' fa- mous, popular figures who know they eventually could suffer real harm if they match- ed grips with the endless streams of people they en- counter. This particular man, known to millions of people in almost every country on earth simply as Billy Graham, has shaken hands and talked with at least his share of the world's popu- lation.

And when the lightning bolt is followed by a P ff of brown- ish smoke, it is easy to imag- ine some evildoer paying for his transgressions. However, no one was guilty or guilty enough near the 2300 block of North 1st about p.m. iSaturday when light- ning, followed by a loud clap of thunder, struck. The only casualty was an electric transformer, accord- ing to Mason Davidson of West Texas Utilities. The knocked-out transformer cut off power to only one building for a short time, he said. However, .people viewing hew cars at Fred Hughes Buick next block said the lightning "seemed like it went right through the build- ing. Weathermen said the "bolt out of the blue" was caused by a weak thunderstorm on top of a low cloud deck. The cloud cover kept the thunder- storm from being visible; The was followed by light rain-vand small hail, the weathermen added. Traces of rain were, report- ed in Winters, Coinahche, Brownwood, Baird, Brecken- ridge and Abilene. A cold front passed south- ward through Texas Saturday, bringing with it cooler temp- eratures and light thunder- storm activity for the Big Country.

Standing o n a windy hill apart from the gathering he answered questions about the state of the world in general and Christianity in particular, 'I have no earthly goal but to glorify the Lord' finally telling his personal goals. "The biggest problem facing the world today is sin it's the flaw in human he said, with the confident voice of a man who has been wag- ing war on evil for many years. "And the United .Na- tions and the rest of the world can't solve the problem. it's greed and the lust for pow- er, among other things." But besides sin, Graham said, "the immediate great problem of the world is the oil problem. And it's going to get worse." He went on to say he feels "there's a definite possibility of a major war in the Middle East within the next six months." The evangelist said he sup- ports Israel but does not take sides on the political question of whether or not thire should be a Palestinian state, as is currently being debated. "Yes, I believe in he said firmly, "that it should survive." And of the Middle Kasl struggle in general, he added, "I just know that this war lias been going on since Bible ti- mes...but these problems will only be resolved when the Messiah returns."

His first surprise came at a.m. when he was greeted by old friends at breakfast who informed him that it was "Grady Wilson Day" at the West Texas Ranch for Christ north of Blackwell off Highway 70. As Wilson and the guests were taking in the gospel singing, the Rev. Billie Hanks Jr., who operates the ranch, gave Wilson his second surprise. "GRADY, IF you'll look behind you, you've got a couple of real good friends coming out." Wilson turned around to see evangelist Billy Graham and gospel singer Ethel Wa- ters walking out of the lodge at the ranch. Wilson has been a friend of Graham's for 40 years an dis a longtime member of his crusade team. Miss Waters is also a member of the team. Guests at the private ceremony were invited by the Billy Graham Assn. They included old friends from all over the United States, local people who helped plan it and one minister from South Afri- ca. A public "Grady Wilson Day" will be held at the ranch Sunday. In addition to Graham and Miss Waters, singers Steve and Barbara Musto of the Billy Graham Assn. and others participat- ed in the celebration Saturday. After the shock of seeing.Graham and Miss Waters, Wilson sat back-in his chair, held a small child in his lap, and enjoyed the program. PERHAPS THE most moving part of the program came when the 78-year-old Miss Waters told Wilson and the audience, "I just want to make a joyful noise." Miss Waters, who had lo be assisted to the microphone, explained that her physi- cal condition is not good. "This may be the last (performance) but I wanted it to be a grandstand." And it was. Miss Waters, dressed in a simple purple dress and pink and gold trimmed black scarf, put all of her soul into her singing.

Constitution provides for the security of the people "in their persons, houses, papers and effects, against unreasona- ble searches and seizures." What constitutes an "unreasonable" search has been a point of controversy for the courts and is something that must be determined in each individual case.- District Atty. Ed Paynter of Abilene said that police are confronted fre- quently with which require fast action, and "they're as likely as anyone else to make a judgment (hat somebody else down the line may say was wrong."
