Students who attended

theI

Michigan Christian Fellowship
sponsored meeting in Lane Hall
last Sunday heard a talk by one
of the real heroes of the Philippine
campaign of World War II.
After hearing of some harrowing
war experiences -of Clay Conner,
one can justly wonder that he is
alive and whole today.
Conner, now an insurance agent
in Indianapolis, spoke to the group
on the topic"Christ Brought Revo-
lution." He explained the revolu-
tion that comes in a man's life
when he establishes a personal,
working relationship with God,
and illustrated with details of his
own experience.
Described Ordeals
In the course of his talk, Conner,
then a Major in the Air Corps, de-
scribed some of the ordeals he
went through during the 34 months1
that he spent "missing in action
behind enemy lines, between 1942
and '45.

In that time, he organized a
3,000 man guerilla force to carry
on harassing tactics against the
Japanese and aid in rescue opera-
tions for American soldiers and
airmen.
One particularly harrowing ex-
perience, he said, was the time

PETER BEVERLY LEEk
GRAVES eGARLAND -VAN CLEEF
Coming: "THE AMBASSADOR'S DAUGHTER"

300 more Nipponese troops moving
up into the area. So Conner and
his buddies stayed and had break-
fast where they were.
Kill Self?
However, it wasn't long before
they sighted a column of enemy
soldiers a short distance away.
They ran in the opposite direction
until they came upon another col-
umn, then changed direction again
only to be cut off again by yet
another column of troops.
Conner finally found himself
alone in a marsh, surrounded by
high grass. Considering the hope-
lessness of his situation, he de-
bated risking almost certain cap-
ture and torture, or using the last
remaining bullet in his .45 on him-
self.
Buried in Mud
Refusing to give up, he dug a
shallow hole and buried himself!
in the mud. The Japanese came
through the marsh on half-tracks,
searching for him and setting fire
to the grass. They failed to find
him, however, and he was relative-
ly safe again for a time.
Throughout all this, Conner said,
he was a Christian, but had not
accepted Christ as his personal
Saviour. "God to me was like an
aspirin," he said, "I took it just
when I needed it."
Revolution Came Later
The revolution in his life came
after he returned to the United
States in 1945. He went on a re-
treat with a group of Christian
businessmen from Indianapolis,
where he had established himself
as a successful insurance agent.
On that weekend, he said he found
what he had been lacking -- a
personal, working relationship with
Christ--and from that day on,
was a different man.

when he and three other men were
surprised as they slept in a Filipino

The Japs prodded them awake with
bayonets and ordered them to sur-

promptly attacked and disarmed
one of the Japs, who all turned
