LOUIS (AP) A dispute over biblical interpretation, which led lo the suspension of a seminary president, is stirring controversy in the 3-million- member Lutheran Church-Mis- souri Synod. Nearly all the faculty anr more than half the students at Concordia seminary here have boycotted classes [or a week to protest the suspension of the Rev. Dr. John Tietjen. More than 250 of the 420 seminary students fanned out across the country to defend him. In a spot check by the As- sociated Press. 11 of 20 Luther- an ministers surveyed on Sun- day said Dr. Tietjen should not have been fired. The other nine issued statements which did not come out strongly for cither side but said the problem is divisive and should be resolved quickly. The dispute, which has sim- mered for 20 years, centers on how literally the Bible should be interpreted. The Missouri Synod's conven- tion last summer approved sev- eral resolutions critical of Dr. Tietjen and the Concordia facul- ty, accusing them of teaching false doctrine. Church conservatives support the belief that all biblical mira- cles are to be accepted as such; .that theories of evolution are in conflict with the Bible and that professors are to teach accord- ing to doctrinal statements adopted by the synod in conven- tion. The Concordia faculty, de- fended by Dr. Tietjen, contends that the message in a story about a miracle is more impor- tant than the question of whether the miracle took place, that it is possible, as a Luther- an, not to accept the teaching that Adam and Eve were real people and that the faculty is not bound to teach according to the synod's doctrinal interpreta- tions: Jessie J. Taylor Dies, Slafe Rites tires damage highways. T h e highway commission admits the studs are safer when highways are covered by glare ice or hard-packed snow. Bui the commission contends that the highways are covered onlj one .percent of the time. Safety Hazards The commission blames the tires for causing up to ?5 million wear per year on the highways and causing safety hazards to other drivers because of ruts in the highways. Those ruts, the commission says, fill with water causing other drivers' cars to hydroplane. The commission .also says the studded tires are unsafe on dry highways because they tend to skid when brakes are applied.
