  • Description

    SEVERAL DANISH TEENAGERS HAD THEIR POCKETS SEARCHED FOR POSSIBLE 'STINKBOMBS' IN COPENHAGEN LAST NIGHT AS THEY ENTERED A HALL WHERE AMERICAN EVANGELIST BILLY GRAHAM HELD THE MOST SUCCESSFUL MEETING OF HIS WEEK-LONG "CAMPAIGN FOR CHRIST".

    TWO BOTTLES OF STINKBOMB FLUID - A KIND OF FOUL SMELLING CHEMICAL - WERE FOUND IN A LAVATORY IN THE HALL. BUT THERE WAS NO REPETITION OF MONDAY'S STINKBOMB THROWING AND ACID SPRAYING OF A DOORKEEPER'S FACE DURING AN ATTEMPT BY 50 BEATNIKS TO BREAK UP MR. GRAHAM'S MEETING.

    LAST NIGHT'S AUDIENCE OF ABOUT 6,000 WAS SMALLER THAN AT THE TWO PREVIOUS MEETINGS IN MR. GRAHAM'S ONLY CRUSADE OUTSIDE AMERICA THIS YEAR. BUT NEARLY 200 CAME FORWARD TO "WITNESS FOR CHRIST" AT THE END.
