DETROIT (AP)-Battered Chrysler
Corp. is withdrawing from the
depressed market for full-size cars, at
least temporarily, by closing another
The action, which will idle an ad-
ditional 2,280 workers, is Chrysler's
seventh plant closing since last year
when it began a major retrenchment
designed to 'cut costs and trim its
CHRYSLER SAID yesterday its Lyn-
ch Road plant in Detroit would be shut
down at the end of the current model
run. The specific date will depend on
the demand for its cars.
"In the event of a reasonably stable
market, the Lynch Road facility could
be reopened in future model years,"
Tony Janette, president of Local 51 of
the United Auto Workers union at the
plant, said the union had been given a
tentative closing date of July 2, depen-
ding on the supply of special parts to
complete police and taxi orders.
JANETTE ALSO said Chrysler told
the local it would not dismantle the
equipment inthe plant. Asked the odds
on its re-use, he replied, "I wouldn't
make a bet on that at all."
The market for full-size cars has been
off for more than a year. And while
Chrysler maintained its share of the
full-size market, only 145 of Chrysler's
makes were sold a day in early
May-meaning the average dealer
went a month between sales of full-size

AFTER THIS YEAR, only a few
names will remain from the roster of
big cars that has included the DeSoto,
the 1934 Chrysler Airflow, the wood-
trimmed Town and Country convertible
of the 1940s, the Chrysle 300 of the 1950s
and the Imperial.
Chrysler said it would keep the New
Yorker name as a luxury four-door 1981
intermedaite made in St. Louis, derived
from the Dodge Diplomat and Chrysler'
LeBaron. The Imperial will be revived
next year as a "personal" luxury in-
Lynch Road empliys 1,960 production
and maintenance workers and 320
white-collar employees. Chrysler said
it would make "every effort" to ease
the impact on them.
Chrysler's fate rests with the 1981
Plymouth Reliant and Dodge Aries
front-wheel drive compacts it will in-
troduce this fall. Those models,
replacing the Volare and Aspen com-
pacts, could make up more than half of
the company's 1981 car production.
Chrysler, which now has 41,000
workers on indefinite layoff, previously
ordered the closings of a car assembly
plant in the Detroit enclave of Ham-
tramck, its Missouri Truck Plant near
St. Louis, a trim plant in Lyons, Mich.,
its Windsor, Ont., engine plant, a foun-
dry in Fostoria, Ohio, and a Detroit

"WHY DO THE HEATHEN RAGE?"
Psalms 2:1 and Acts 4:25
The great Protestant denominations were founded and
developed by men who believed in The God of The Bible,
that the Scriptures of The Old and New Testaments are
the Infallible Word of God, the Supreme Authority for
Faith and Practice. Or, in other words, "The Law and The
The Law and The Testimony, were also the basis of the
17th century Revival and Reformation, sometimes called
the Puritan Reformation. The Law and The Testimony
were words frequently on the lips of John Wesley, and
were the great Foundation Stones of the 18th Century
Revival led by Wesley, and which Revival saved England
from experiences similar to those of France at the ilme of
her Revolution when the streets of Paris ran 'vith blood,
and which Revolution was greatly contr'outed to by
Voltaire and his cohorts as they mocked, despised, and
rejected The Law and The Testimony!
Not only did the Wesleyan Revival greatly bless
England, but its fire leaped acrr.s The Atlantic Ocean
and kindled itself in North Am,.ica by the hands of such
men as Whitfield, Asbury, Coce, Jonathan Edwards, and
others, and spread rapidly over our country, producing
such men in political and civil life a* George Washington,
Patrick Henry, etc.
Through the blessings of God which have come from
our rich and godly heritage we have freedom and liberty,
which we have turned into "license!"
The great and inspired men of God mentioned above
were all in one accord in one respect: "They believed in
The God of The Bible." Not only that "it contained The
Word of God," but it "was The Word of God." They ac-
cepted at face value the first recorded words spoken by
Christ after His baptism by John, and The Holy Spirit
visibly descending upon Him from heaven in the form of a
dove: "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by 'EVERY.
WORD' that proceedeth out m ' .outh of God." Mat.
thew and Luke 4"d
As -.. of the Puritan Revival and the Wesleyan
Revival in the American colonies, and later the states,
many of God's laws were written on our statute books and
still there, though scorned and mocked at by many today
as "blue laws," outmoded and out of date, etc., These
laws were put there without serious objection by a
population that was about 75% or more non-professing
Christians. Today the picture is just about reversed, with
about 75%, or a little less, professing to be Christian, we
see the laws of God being taken off our statute books, or
compromised, or watered down to where they mean
almost nothing to the morality of our times!
In the Second Psalm God says: "Ask of Me, and I shall
give Thee the heathen for Thine inheritance." This was ad-
dressed to "His King He set up," but surely it is ap-
propriate and pleasing to God for us to make this same
prayer in Christ's Name, for His sake!
