Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 6, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 3g _ THE ItTHBRIDOl HSRAIO - Wednesday, January 6, 1971 A CHANGE IN LOOKS - An Instant facelift is temporary but it gives Toni Tucci, a grandmother who admits to being more than 50, the youthful appearance necessary for her work as a photographer's model. Using special adhesive tape attached to elastic bands, loose skin is pulled up smoothly. A wig then covers the bands. Long-haired army uses Bible as chief weapon without jobs. Some of the other full-time workers live with their families. The group's operating costs are limited to building rental, printing of tracts and small amounts for charity. Ray Bassett, 20, has long hair and wears the uniform of t o d a y's youth-faded blue jeans and other clothes with that lived-in look. He has been a member of the army for about two months. "I joined through a revival meeting," he said. "They had a lot of good things to say. At first I didn't go for the whole trip, but eventually got involved." CHANGE FROM NOTHING Before joining the group Ray said he was doing "absolutely nothing." He now is a full-time evangelist with the army. Evangelism is usually directed at youth but, as Char-maine said, she will approach and begin talking to anyone towards whom she feels God is directing her- The army does not believe the spirit should always be fed before the body and will offer a cup of coffee to a cold drunk on the street before coming out with lines like "Jesus loves you." Sometimes the army goes to high schools for revival meetings or addresses church or youth groups- If we only start one person thinking at such a meeting, it is worth it, said 22-year-old Eve, the unofficial leader of the unstratified group. Because of their past, their looks and their youth, they face a good deal of cynicism "People sometimes say, 'Oh I know your kind ... shacking up upstairs,'" Charmalne said. However, premarital sex is frowned upon by the Edmonton army, most of whom are unmarried. In their discussion of two people in Vancouver living together, a "Praise the Lord" was heard when it became known the relationship had been dissolved. "The Lord broke that up,'' said Ray. PRAISE FOR POLICE While they had praise for the police and the help they have offered the army, some quiet rumblings are also noticeable in most discussions. One recent Saturday night Eve was handing out pamphlets on a street corner. She apparently became over-zealous and a policeman threatened to throw her in jail under the War Measures Act. Most hassles are caused by "people judging us by our looks, rather than words or actions," Ray said. Some of the people from the established churches worry about the Jesus Peoples' lack of alignment with a denomination. Ray said they don't want to become part of a denomination because that involves believing in man-made doctrine-"For some people, church is their trip," he said, "but we won"; put them down just because it is not our trip." EDMONTON (CP) - An army of long-haired "freaks" is on the march to conquer the world-with Bibles. The army is made up mainly of former drug users with deep roots in "re hippie sub-culture, who huv 1 cast aside the chemical trips for what they call a "Jesus trip." "If you're on Christ, you don't do drugs," one girl said. "Trips on drugs are nothing compared to Christ-" The Jesus People Army, otherwise known as Jesus Freaks, are mostly between the ages ot 18 and 22. The movement had its beginnings in Seattle, Wash-, but members of the Edmonton branch are not sure how or when things got started and they are not particularly worried, concentrating instead on what is happening now. In the hippie culture a freak is a drug-user. A Jesus Freak refers to a hippie stoned on Jesus. Armed with Bibles, Christian ethics and a lingo filled with words like "heavy," "trip" and "stone d," the young army Ls determined to bring the word of Christ to mankind. PEACEFUL TAKEOVER They like to think of their movement as a revolution minus any physical force-just a peaceful takeover. The local chapter of the army has rented a small, cramped building littered with well-used furniture and mot-tos on the walls. The building is on one of the more sleazy streets in a run-down district. The mottos include: "Praise the Lord, and leave the building by midnight"-the landlord doesn't appreciate anyone remaining past that. time. And: "When Jesus fed the 6.000 he picked up the scraps afterwards. Let's keep this house clean." Seven days a week the Edmonton Jesus House opens about 10 a.m. and closes at midnight. Mornings begin with the full-time workers cleaning up the premises followed by Bible studies and prayer meetings. Preaching to people on the street and to those who drop into the house continues aU clay-Full-time workers are members of the group who don't hold outside jobs. They spend all their time being evangelists- The number of such workers averages about 10. NAMES RARELY USED When 16-y e a r -o 1 d Char-maine-last names are rarely used-was asked how she manages to eat with no salary, she said, "The Lord provides." While the Jesus People do not say manna falls from heaven, they do believe that all the gifts of food and shelter donated to them by group members and outsiders are gifts of God. "We're always sitting here saying thank you, Lord," said Charm aine. Some members of the army do hold regular jobs, providing food and lodging to those Canadian briefs BUYS SYRUP OTTAWA (CP) - Japan buys more than $3 million worth of Canadian maple syrup each year, mainly from Quebec, but it's not for eating. Officials of the Japan Tobacco Monopoly, during a recent tour, disclosed that the maple syrup is used to flavor tobacco to the Japanese taste.
