Rescue Squad Seeks
Fourth Paid Employee
A letter signed by Kings
Mountain Rescue Squad officers
and board of directors to the
Cleveland County Board of
Commissioners asks for an extra
paid employee, a new ambulance
and increased expense funding.
Russell Falls, Rescue Squad
secretary, presented the requests
to the board of commissioners
Chairman Jack Palmer, Jr.
said that any action taken by the
commissioners would be part of
the county’s 1984-85 budget. A
Scent tax rate hike is proposed
in the budget, but funding for re-
quests made by the rescue squad
May 25th are not included in the
proposed budget. The new
budget, which may be modified
by commissioners, takes effect
July 1.
The letter stated that ‘the
number of volunteer members
available to wus during the
daylight hours has been depleted
to nearly a non-existent level.
The crew person will drastically
reduce the chances of an
emergency situation being inade-
quately covered.”
The Kings Mountain squad is
asking a mileage allowance in-
crease from 25 cents to 50 cents
per mile.
Cleveland County now funds
three positions with the rescue
squad through fees charged by
the squad for ambulance trips.
The county owns two am-
bulances used by the squad. The
squad has asked that a third am-
bulance be purchased.

Patterson Writes Book
Dr. Bob E. Patterson, son of
Mr. and Mrs. Dewitt Patterson
of Kings Mountain, has recently
published a book on a leading
American thinker, Carl Henry.
Dr. Patterson is professor of
religion at Baylor University in
Waco, Texas, and editor of the
series, “Makers of the Modern
Theological Mind,” a twenty
volume set of books on contem-
porary theological thinkers.
Patterson says: “As editor of
this series of volumes, I had to
select an (or the) outstanding
American evangelical theologian
about whom to write a book.
The choice was simplicity itself-
Carl F.H. Henry, of course. Carl
Henry is the prime interpreter of
evangelical theology, one of its
leading theoreticians, and now in
his 70’ the unofficial elder
statesman for the entire tradi-
tion. In 1978 Time Magazine
named him Evangelicalism’s
“leading theologian.” No in-
dividual has provided more in-
tellectual dignity, prophetic in-
sight, and clarification to the
movement than Henry.
“l wrote the book on Carl
Henry for three reasons: to
educate myself about the whole
evangelical tradition by immers-
ing myself in its literature; to ex-
pose myself to Henry’s first-rate
theological mind and let him
pass judgment on some of my
own theological ideas; and to
share my journey with those
readers outside the evangelical
tradition who have read the
other volumes in this “Makers”
