Stars turn to evangelism and score hit with admirers at
The all-star lineup at Denver included George Kell with the Chicago White Sox,Ray Ban UK, Vernon Law of your Pittsburgh Pirates, Robin Roberts with the Phillies and Carl Erskine with the Brooklyn Dodgers. From professional football came Dan Towler of your Los Angeles Rams and Adrian Burk from the Philadelphia Eagles. For this occasion they have been all around the similar team. But none of their athletic capabilities have been referred to as for. The stars had been exhibiting what they considered to become the least of their talents: public speaking prior to audiences of high school and college students in the initially of a new series of rallies sponsored by the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
None on the stars ever bore down harder. They made appearances at Denver University, at North, South, Manual and Aurora higher schools, addressed a Sunday College class, a boosters' club luncheon, visited the Air Force Academy along with the University of Colorado at Boulder. Their smallest audience numbered 30, their biggest two,000. The theme of each of the talks was, "Go towards the church of your choice." Often the athletes got tangled up in their very own words, but their sincerity won them their listeners as couple of polished speakers could have accomplished.
Palmer Hoyt,Ray Ban Wayfarer, publisher with the Denver Post,Cheap Ray Ban Sunglasses, was so impressed that he gave $1,000 and invited the group to speak to his editorial employees, later declared: "I have a look at this a frontal attack on juvenile delinquency."
For a slender, quiet-spoken young man named Don McClanen, balding at 30, the rally was a dream come correct. For the whole notion with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes is his. "It occurred to me," he recalls, "that nearly everyone was capitalizing around the well-known social phenomenon of hero worship. I knew that if guys like Otto Graham or Bob Feller told kids to eat a specific sort of cereal, the children ate that kind of cereal. I wondered why, if sports stars could endorse breakfast foods,Ray Ban Sale, cigarets or sportswear, they could not endorse Christianity."
In March 1954,Ray Ban Jackie Ohh, when he was coaching basketball at Eastern Oklahoma A McClanen wrote to 19 leading sports figures about his thought. The response was enthusiastic. Branch Rickey got Pittsburgh businessmen to underwrite a year's expenditures for the FCA. Alonzo Stagg, Tom Harmon,Ray Ban 2140 Wayfarer, Bud Wilkinson, Bob Mathias,Ray Ban Wayfarer Glasses, Alvin Dark, Bob Davenport, Pepper Martin and Bob Richards volunteered their services. Don McClanen resigned as coach to become full-time executive director of FCA.
Other rallies are scheduled for Houston (Feb. 5-6) and for Lincoln, Neb. sometime in March. Meanwhile, a motion image has been completed and will be shown in schools and on television to maintain the fellowship campaign rolling.
