here on X '“sday, March 23, at 7:3.0
p. m. ;
AH denominations ajjd" all chur- j
ches in the Association are invited
to attend the showing.
• The film is based on the story
of two young people who actually
visited the Fair during the first
Season of its operation. Pamela
Baird, a Walt Disney national tal
ent contest winner, plays the role
of a graduate nurse from Montana.
Jean Luc Ray, making his acting
debut, portrays a Swiss-French ex- J
change student who is * enrolled as
an architect major,.at a New York
University. The encounter of these
two young people and their grow
ing friendship during a day at
the Fair, is the vehicle through
whicfi film viewers are at once en
tertained, informed and inspired.
The story climax takes place in
the Billy Graham Pavilion where,
the Wide-screen motion picture, j
“Man In The- sth Dimension,’’
makes its impact on the film’s'
principals. Th’s is the Todd-Ao and
Technicolor subject-Which has been
playing to capacity audiences that
visit the Pavilion throughout the
day. The young couple's impress
ions of the unusual cinema presen
tation become a symbol of the ac
tual response by .thousands who
ha/ve found spiritual meaning and
purpose to life amid the glitter and (
excitement of the New York
World’s Fair. J

Things are b ginning to take
shape for the upcoming production
“Look Horn ward Angel to be given
at East Yancey April 16th and
17th. When on;l sees this play, one
seldom gives thought to the many
people who are never se.te, but
one who make an evening of d.f
lightful enterta nment possible. For
the last two w.eks, the RECORD
has sought to probe behind the
scenes and to present credit to thp
various committees that are charg
ed with an important sac It of pro
duct on of the play.
Lighting is one of the most im
portant mood setters of a play, and
chairman Joe Moody of the light
ing committal has been hard at
I wcric at rhaarsaJs tr ng to cap
ture the right effects with the
lights aided by assistants M k;>
Higgins. Greg Byrd, and Dennis
Bate. Work ng in ciose co-ordina
tion with lighting is Jerry Hoover
of the sound eff lots committee and
his ass stant Doyle Styles. The
sound . men provide cues to the
actors for important sc lies with
efffects like train whistles, autos
stepp ng, crashes, and other sounds.
A pay would not be
the attraction It is without th i
fine array of costuming fo*\ the
characters. Kay Rob nson and
