City voters yesterday elected three
conservative members to theschool
board while turning down a property
tax increase request. Two millage re-
newal proposals, however, won by better
than 2-1 margins.
B o a r d incumbents Clarence Dukes
and Cecil Warner, as well as candidate
John Heald, captured the available
three-year seats, bringing the board to
a 7-2 conservative majority.
PR0PO IT ON A, a 1.5mil
lage hike proposal, was defeated 7,118
votes to 6,331 in the traditionally light
voter turnout. Approval of the proposed
tax hike would have brought about $1.3
million per year to the school district,

tained was necessary both to continue

ond term, led the list of ten candidates
with 7,095 votes. He said he expected to
win but added that he was "deeply dis-

"It makes my victory less a pleasure,"
Dukes said. "We really needed that and
the board really worked for that. I'm
disappointed that the public didn't see
fit (to approve the proposition)."
ALTHOUGH THE school district can
request the millage hike again as soon
as August, Dukes said he doubts the
board will take such action.

Faith healer draws
crowd of converts
By JO MARCOTTY
Kathryn Kuhlman, renowned faith healer and miracle
minister, stood on the stage in Crisler Arena with her arms
and rapturous face uplifted toward the blazing lights, and
personified what she claimed not to be-the Lord's angel.
Thousands had come from miles around, many in wheel-
chairs and stretchers, to be touched by the power of God
and to be hesled by the Holy Spirit through the hands of
Kuhlman. For five hours last Saturday the packed cavernous
Crisler Arena became a multi-denominational church.
THE SEATS were filled by 11:30 that morning, though
Kuhlman didn't begin her service until two hours later. And
despite the long wait, there was no sense of impatience or
restlessness. The crowd sat back and quietly listened to a
choir sing familiar hymns. A few sat with bowed heads, their
lips moving silently in prayer.
"You know," said Kuhlman during a press conference
before the 'miracle ministry' began, "I never get over the
crowds. The night before I never sleep. I have this night-
mare that the auditorium will be empty. It just scares me
Kuhlman, a tall, almost emaciated woman with dyed,
frizzy red hair began her work in 1946. Since then she has
