Abilene Reporter News (Newspaper) - February 23, 1954, Abilene, Texas FAIRlEfte Abilene 3^eporter~i^evuá MORMNG VOL. LXXIII, No. 252 _"WITHOUT    OR    WITH    OFFENSE    TO    FRIE!JDS    OR FOES WE SKETCH YOUR WORLD EXACTLY AS IT GOES" Byron Auociated Preu (AP) ABILENE, TEXAS, TUESDAV MORNING, KEBRIMRY 23, 1954—EiGIITEEN PAGeTIN TWO SECTIONS 5,000 Persons Hear Lectures PRICE DAILY 5c, SUNDAY 10c Danger.? in the work of an evangelist and problems of the eldership were proclaimed to an estimated 5,000 persons in three auditoriums Monday night at Abilene Christian College’s 36th annual Bible Lectureship, The danger of developing the rn^inislry into a profession wa.s emphasized by Dr. Paul Southern of Abilene before 1,000 in Bennett Ciymnasium. Meanwhile, Glenn L. Wallace of Abilene warned mi.sunderstanding concerning the work of an evangelist and pleaded for preachers to learn their mi.ssion. Wallace spoke in Sewell Auditorium before an overflow crowd of approximately 2.000. Dr. .lohn G. Young of Dallas recommended that "more love, more zeal, more sacrifice and more vision” would help correct eldership) pi'oblems in his address in the College Church of Christ before another 2,000. Preaching Not a Profession "Preaching must not be a profession but a passion." Dr. Southern said. He declared professionalism among preachers is no new problem, citing Phil. 1:17. He explained (hat some people think that professionalism can develop only in the Bible schools, and these people "make a profession out of keeping professionalism out of the Bible schools” "Preparation is necessary whether It is done in a college or in a cornfield," Dr. Southern said. "When a man quits studying, he might as well hang crepe over his nose—if his mind’s not dead yet. it soon will be." Preachers can become professional through adopting a pose in bearing, gestures and distinctive phraseologj', which Southern termed "professional garbling.” He declared, "When souls are at stake, one’s speech should be simple.” He cited the example of the preachers who appeal to the minds and not to the hearts of men. "Preachers who work on a schedule and punch a time clock, need to work in a powerhouse not a pulpit.” Made Secular Profession Dr. Southern said preachers who expected "puIpiteerJan privileges.” such as cut-rates on transportations, special consideration from local officials, have made their high calling a secular profession. He cautioned preachers not to develop an omnipotent complex and begin to “poilce the congregation.” He termed men who snooped on fellow Christians and deemed themselves w’orthy to hand out punishment as being “full of professional blubber.” He urged men to avoid politicians and panhandlers in the pulpit and to never develop "professional priests in God’s kingdom where all men are priests.” Dr. Southern closed with the ad monition to cause the church never to become "a place where one can only hear the cranking of ec-elesiastical machinery.” He said, "The church is not a mechanism, but an organism.” Wallace, preacher for the College Church of Christ, said the evangelist is "a proclalmer of good news” and that “the stay or pay neither makes him qualified or unqualified for the work he does.” To Edify the Church He said that evangelists, as well as the elders, are to edify the church and that an evangelist is to be a minister to the saints. An evangelist has "a work to do, but he has no office to supply.” He said that work i.s “to preach Christ,” referring to 2 Tim. 4:2. He .said the theories are wTong (hat say "preaching" is for nonmembers of the church and "teaching” is for the church. Also in error, he said. Is the belief in “mutual ministry” or that all members must take their turn in preaching, "without regard to the ability of the brother.s, and that all must edify the saints when their turn approaches.” In deciding how' long a preacher See LECTURES, Pg. 2-A, Col. 6 Parr Tells Court Why Rangers 'Want to Kill L.

S. military aid under terms of American mutual security law. This is the long-discussed program which could entail establishment of U, S. military ba.ses in this country and which has been bitterly opposed by Indian Prime Minister Jaaharlal Nehru. He ha.s argued it would tip the balance of power between India and Pakistan. Simultancou.sly in New’ Delhi. Nehru renewed his attack on the proposed Pakistan-U. S. pact, declaring “We do not want to enter into this circle of hatred, violence, and fear that Is the cold war—-and we do not want others to do .so, either.” Mohammed Ali, former Pakistan ambassador to Washington, emphasized his country had asked for the military aid "for the purpose of achieving increased defensive strength, a higher and stronger degree of economic stability designed to foster international peace and security within the framework of the United Nation* Charter.

Any person can see the.v have been fighting without reaching a decision. Nowadays, once even a little war starts, it just goes on and on.” It becomes difficult to stop it and reach a satisfactory solution.” "There is a continuing trail of bitterness and I am convinced that there can be no full solution to these problems at this stage by warfare,” he said.

The meeting will be at 7:30 p.m. in the City Commission room at City Hall. Mrs. Sw'inney said Monday night the controversy over the proposed shopping center near the high school was caused by letting "that other one slip by."

His abrupt departure, he said, will make it impo.ssible for his Japanese wife, Kyoko Araki, to go with him. Her letters to him, while he was held with 21 other Americans in the Korean neutral zone, largely influenced his decision to desert the Reds, he has said. Batchelor was captured by the Reds in 1950. He originally decided against repatriation and, following the Korean armistice, was placed in Indian custody pending efforts to persuade reluctant prisoners to •return to their homelands, Batchelor decided to return Jan. 1. Since being brought to Japan he has been quartered at Tokyo Army Hospital. He had asked the Army for a two-week leave to get Kyoko the proper entry visas. The Army turned down his request, he said. "She will come along later,” Batchelor said. Batchelor married Kyoko in an official embassy ceremony last week. They had been married in a Shinto ceremony in Japan in 1949. Shoppers began lining up last night. The early birds were trapped in the store by latecomers, who burst police lines to shout, scream and elbow their way inside.

Ridgway, the Army chief of staff, addressed the opening session of the annual conference of the Adjutants General Assn. of the United States. "There exists today a massive and menacing threat to all these values of human dignity and individual freedom that are the very foundation .stones upon which not ! only our nation but all fri cdom I loving nations are built," Ridgway said in a prepared talk. "Because of its va^t militarj strength in being, and because of the absolute control exercised over that strength by a handful of evil men who scheme our destruction, the threat which faces us is one which can Ignite with little warning, and flame quickly into all-out war. Such war could come simul taneously in widely separated areas of the world. It could strike at the very heart of our own territory. "This threat, moreover, has the capability of continuing without change over an extended period of time. There is a timelessness in Communist scheming which we can ignore only at our deadly peril.” Ridgway said this threat, with its immediate and long range implications, poses special defense NEWS INDEX SECTION A Wúmtn'f Now* Potes 4, S Sports 8. 9 Oil...... ____ 10 SECTION B Editorial ........ ....... 2 Comics . ......... .......4 Clotsifiod ...... ..... 5-7 Form, Morktts .., .... 7. t Radio, TV Legi ... ....... t problem.?.
