6 - The Journal, Thursda), May 22. 197; There is a small troubled country in the Mideast that has for its borders the Mediterranean Sea on one side and the Arab nations on all other sides. Israel can be considered as very small since one could drive across it in an hour and a modern jet could fly the length of Israel in a few minutes. The figures and distances I quote may not be accurate but one thing I am sure about is the determination the Jewish people have to hold it for their home land. Doyle Parrack, one of our Perkins neighbors and his family visited the birth place of Christ in 1972 and Doyle returned for a one-month period in 1974. In 1972 he stayed for eight months and was hired by a club system there to prepare a national basketball team for the Olympics and to promote basketball clinics in a country where soccer is the national sport. Soccer is played by both boys and girls in Israel and, because of lack of other sports, most of the time the stadiums are filled when fixst.rate by Bob Jordan impression all Americans are cowboys. Very few of the homes have rugs, and such frills as electric can openers, dish washers, and other conveniences are seldom seen in a Jewish household. All men serve three years in the army and women serve two years. The women, like the Patsy Lile Hosts Local Club President Patsy Lile was our hostess this month. She brought us to order and we answered roll call by telling of problems we had canning. One problem mentioned was jar lids not sealing. It was brought out that these lids were plastic lined instead of rubber. So instead of boiling lids, just rinse them. Any lids left over from the package should be stored in an air tight container because they will dry out. Our lesson this month was about canning presented by Ethel Edmendson.

There are very few churches to be seen in the Holy Land, either Christian, Moslem or Jewish. Doyle says that it is about the same there now as it was when I was there a few years back in that there are no signs to indicate the small hill where Christ was crucified, where the loaves and fishes miracle was performed or the many things we are taught as Christians.
