church here Sunday, for the open
ing of Mission Week, which is be
ing observed all this week.
Dr. Piainneiu was norn in Italy,
and was a former schoolmate of
Mussolini. He was also a Catho
lic priest and it was while in
South America as a prolessor at
the age of 23 that he met a Bap
tist Missionary and became a mem
ber of that church.
On Sunday morning he pointed
out that the need of the world was
God to follow more closely the
plan set by God.
Dr. Flainheld was born in Italy
63 years ago and he dwelled at
length in impressing his audience
that they Bhould be thankful they
lived in America "The best coun
try on earth," he repeated over
and over again.
Sunday evening, with every
available seat taken, he told the
story of his life.
He was an invalid until he was
nine years old. He entered college
at age of ten and graduated at 14.
Took a postgraduate course, and at
18 became a Catholic priest and
studied to be a missionary.
While his legs were paralyized,
his father took him to the top of
a snow-capped mountain and
rolled him on the snow and ice for
three hours. Then they went home
and he was plunged in hot and
cold water for hours. He soon be
gan to get better, and in three
months could crawl alone.
Dr. Plainfied was aboard a ship
which was wrecked, and - after
