(AP) Along the highways and back roads are thousands of crosses and signs proclaiming "Get Right With God" and "Jesus Saves." It's the lifetime work of one retired coal miner from eastern Kentucky, whose signs stand in all 50 states and 82 foreign nations and provinces. "People tell me they think it's a company that does it or somebody hired to put up them said H. Harrison Mayes, an elfin man who's been spreading the Lord's word for more than 50 years. As a young man Mayes was severely injured in a rock fall in the mine. Doctors said he would die but Mayes believes the Lord saved him, so "I fig- ured I would devote the rest of my life to warning others to follow his word." Mayes erects most of his signs along interstate high- ways because "it's where the masses travel." He knows the laws limiting advertising on highways, but doesn't always abide by the rules and regulations. "It's all he acknowl- "YE DO ERR, NOT KNOWING THE SCRIPTURES" Matthew Ignorance of God's Word usually means ignorance of Christ. (John Bring your Bible to an old-fashioned Bible study.

School Organist: Vivian Toth edged, "but you can't get anywhere if you doesn't do any good." Mayes tries to put the signs on right-of-ways, but has oc- casionally strayed onto pri- vate property. He has had a few run-ins with angry prop- erty owners, but said he has managed to talk his way out of the scrapes. People are wary of religious signs because "religion has a different feel to he said. "People don't like the idea for a dozen reasons." A major stumbling block for most people is the fact that Mayes doesn't belong to a church or a religious de- nomination. A larger obstacle is that he doesn't pay to erect his signs. "One guy told me to take my sign he could get for a sign like that on his Mayes said. The design and size of the signs has changed over the years. In 1917 Mayes began paint- ing messages on the rocks in the mountains near his home. Later he began making small wooden signs, then started producing crosses made of concrete poured into wooden moulds that he built himself. Each cross weighs about 400 pounds. Mayes has since turned to the construction of aluminum signs on wooden frames, which are durable but much lighter. Mayes manufactures about 100 signs a year in a workshop at the rear of his house, which is built in the shape of a cross. The door of his cluttered of- fice, where he keeps files on all the signs he has erected, is marked "Hub Nub's Theo- logical Seminary." When the signs are ready Mayes hires a truck and driver and they begin a cross- country trek to place the signs. Mayes' wife, Lillie, is re- sponsible for another side of the in whisky bottles dropped into the sea. The half-pints contain MET ESKIMOS IN 1008 Writing of early Scandin- vian Vikings show that they met Dorset Eskimo people about the year 1008. cards printed in 16 languages, including Chinese, advising the finder to "Prepare to Meet God." The bottles are mailed to friends and postmasters who put them in rivers or the ocean. Marriage hurdle frustrates team SEVERN BRIDGE, Ont. (CP) Leslee Alfano, 23, dreams of the day she can form a team ministry with her husband, Rev. Vincent Alfano, now of the United Church of Canada's Severn Bridge pastoral charge. But she first must overcome a major hurdle marriage. "The church has no policy to enable a woman to stay with her husband in a team said Mr. Alfano, 28. Mrs. Alfano's ordination would result in one of the first United Church husband wife team ministries in Canada. The United Church has or- dained women since 1925. But all the women have been single or married to men who were not ministers. Mrs. Alfano, a graduate of Emmanuel College, the United Church seminary in meets all the qualifications for ordination. Mr. Alfano said the church has no policy to allow his wife to choose her first placement, which would be to work with her husband. Severn Bridge is a quiet community in a setting of Muskok'a rock and bushland 12 miles-north of Orillia. There are about 350 members in the charge and they are sup- porting Mrs. Alfano's bid for ordination. The general top governing body of the United studying a petition from the official board of the charge which asks that the husband-wife team be established. Mrs. Alfano said "I had no idea I was going to be in the ministry until the last half of my university years." She said Rev. Farquar (Fred) McKinnon of London, Ont. suggested the idea when she was completing un- dergraduate courses in English and French at Univer- sity of Western Ontario in London. Mr. Alfano was ordained in April, 1973, and he married the former Leslee Campbell during the same month. They later moved to their Severn Bridge home and Mr. Alfano began his work as minister. Mrs. Alfano now shares pas- toral duties with her husband. Mrs. Alfano is in charge of work involving senior citizens and pre-school children while Mr. Alfano works with young persons. They alternate hospital visits, conducting of funeral services and writing for Out Reach, a church magazine. But Mr. Alfano must perform all marriages.
