Curriculum issue argued

Faith healer comes to Crisler

(Coutinued Iro Page 3)
Conservative candidate George
Kolasa opposes the tax in-
crease because "we're squeez-
ing the lower income people to
a point where thev can no
ibnger afford Ann Arbor. I
think the monev can be fOund
within the schootl system."
HE CAlLS an attendance
counselor unnecessary s i n c e
"attendance responsibilty lies
mostly with the parents."
Liberal candidate Eltot 'hi-
kofsky strongty opposes the mitt
levv and the idea of a curricu-
lum coordinator. "It appears
that too much is going to cen-
trt funding and administra-
tion," he states.
IRP-hacked candidates Astrid
Beck and Larry Mann also op-
pose the millage proposal. "Ap-
pointing full-time people for at-
tendance and 'curriculum con-
tiuity' positions is an example
of the board squandering money
that's needed elsewhere," says
write-in candidate Mann.
MANN, WHO is 14 years old.
will not appear on the ballot
because he's not a registered
voter and theref ore cannot hold
public office under state law.

"I think we need to look into
building costs for a new high
school," suggests Schmidt. He
also urges that the board spend
more on elementary education.
"Children need a feeling of
success at the earliest level or
else they're often discouraged,'
he explained.
Bath IIRP candidates support
more funding ta vocational and
technical programs. "There's
too much emphasis on college
prep and too little funding of
programs for other students ,"
saysfBeck.
HRP HOPEFULS also back
teacher demands for a salary
increase of at least 5.5 per cent,
a reduction of the class size
limit from 31 to 28 and for more
paid preparation time for ele-
mentary teachers.
All other board candidates
either oppose teacher demands
or have no comment at present.
Conservative candidate Bielby
opposes the teachers' wage de-
mands, explaining "in a :ime
of tight funds, we all have to
tighten our belts."
CONSERVATIVE candidate
Bielby opposed the additional
preparation time, commenting,
"Most people work a potential
262 days a year; teachers only
work 186 days. I want all that
time allocated to the children."

out over the standing room only
crowd. "There is some one over
there," she said, pointing to a
section on the opposite side of
the arena.
"THEY HAD arthritis in their
shoulder, but with the Lord's
power it has been cured," she
continued. "Would that person
stand and come to the stage,
please."
Then she turned to the wheel-
chair section, where over 200
people sat confined by their af-
flictions. Several others lay al-
most motionless on portable hos-
pital beds.
"Someone over here has also
been cured . . . please get up
out of your wheelchair and
come to the front," Kuhlman
half pleaded and half ordered.
Suddenly from the rear a wo-
man rose and began to walk
forward first slowly then faster
and faster.
T H E WO M A N' S hus-
band, Gene Maddox, of Big
Rapids, stood staring in amaze-
ment. "It's a genuine miracle,"
he said in a voice cracking with
emotion.
His wife suffered from pul-
monary- hypertension and a
family doctor had given her less
than two years to live, he ex-
plained, as his wife wept tears
of joy on stage and called for
him to join her there.
In all, Kuhlman "healed"
over 40 people of maladies
ranging from rheumatism and
slipped discs to cancer. As each
walked across the stage, she
touched the individual's cheeks,
saying, "This is the power of
Jesus." '
FOR THE PAST 15 years,
Kuhlman has toured the coun-
try performing her brand of
evangelism to standing room
only crowds. But her early life
was unspectacular. A high
school drop - out, the woman
spent two decades as an itiner-
ant revivalist.

Now Kuhlman is a legend to
many people. And she has not
suffered under the yoke of suc-
cess. She heads the wealthy
K a t h r y n Kuhlman founda-
tion and has her own radio and
television programs.
The crowd Saturday learned,
first hand, svhy she has pros-
pered. The people came as ear-
ly at 7 a. m. with Bibles under
their arms and paper bag
lunches in their hands to wait
for the sermon, scheduled to
start after noon.
THEY DROVE in from the
Upper Peninsula and as far
away as Iowa. Scores of buses
from church groups across the
state brought thousands to the
arena - ambulances brought a
few more.
"I came to see her miracles,"
said a woman from tiny parson
City, a village outside of Grand
Rapids. "There will be a lot
of healing, after all, nearly
everyone of us has some kind
of problem."
She and a dozen others from
the town got up before 5 a.m.
to drive to Ann Arbor for the
service.
A YOUNG man with shoulder
length hair who was wearing
bib overalls said he hitchhiked
from Lansing "to have my
faith in Jesus reaffirmed."
The five-hour service began
around 1 p.m. and stretched on
as the audience sang hymns and
praised the Lord, and Kathryn
Kuhlman preached her simple
Christian gospel - a message
of peace through the Holy Spirit.
"I'm not standing here de-
fending Jesus, the Spirit and
God," she said, as she raised
the Bible over her head. "I
come to give you the truth."
BUT THE HEALER neither
guarantees cures nor takes cre-
dit for the miracles attributed
to her. Instead Kuhiman con-
tends that the Lord merely
works through her - she is,

in her own eyes, a conduit for
divine power.
"I just stand there and let
the power of God work," Kuhl-
man said, before entering the
arena to a standing ovation.
"The Holy Spirit comes to the
people not because I touch them
but because they believe in God
. . . I only carry the water
bucket."
Before the healing miracles
began, a donation was taken. It
was then that Kuhlman perhaps
best demonstrated her unique
ability to influence other people.
HER DONATION speech con-
tained the elements that mark-
ed the rest of her service - old
time religion, self-deprecating
humor, and just enough fire and
brimstone to make the crowd
recall the wrath of God - all
carefully honed by constant
practice.
"Be fair and honest with God
and He will be fair and honest
with you," Kuhlman told the
audience. "If you can give a
bill do so, but above all be obe-
dient to the Lord."
The purses and wallets opened
and the green poured out. The
collection buckets didn't jingle
as they passed. They just
rustled.
NONETHELESS, the people
didn't mind the "small contri-
bution" because they got to see
faith in the flesh - Kathryn
Kuhlman stood before them as
the personnification of God's
miraculous power.
Early in the sermon, Kuhl-
man told the crowd, "I believe
there will be a miracle service
where every wheelchair and
every bed will be empty by the
end and it could be today."
It wasn't. Nearly everyone
who hobbled in had to hobble
out. But that didn't shake their
belief because they knew -
they had faith - that someday
the healer's dream would come
true.
