The Rt. Rev. Lyman Ogilby announced his actions on Thursday in a four-page pastoral letter that is lo be read from every pulpil in the diocese within 10 days. One of those named was the Rt. Rev. Robert L. DeWitt. Ihe bishop's predecessor and one of four bishops who per- formed the ordination service on Monday. No Duties Bishop Ogilby said .he has received assurances from Bishop DeWitt that he will not perform any ministerial duties in the diocese at least until a meeting of national bishops next month. Also named was Ihe Rev. Hialt. the only woman ordained who is under Bishop Ogilby's jurisdiction. She has agreed "to refrain from priestly duties until her status has been clarified." The Rev. Paul Washington of the Church of the Advocate, scene of the ordination, was admonished for failing to obey a section of the church's constitution that reiiuires conformity lo church doctrines. The ordinations came under heavy criticism and were carried out despite objections by Bishop Ogilby and the pres- iding bishop of the S. Episcopal Clinch, the Rl Rev .lohn M. Allm. No Blessings II marked the first time in the Western hemisphere thai women were admitted to the church's priesthood. And while church laws do not forbid women from becoming priests, they do require that diocesan bishops approve ordinations of members of their diocese. None of the 11 women, ail deacons of the church, had received her bishop's blessing to proceed with the ceremony. In New York.

Texas (AP) If a young man offers a police- woman decoying as a prosti- tute a ride and she replies that a ride won'I pay her rent, is thai entrapment?

About 71) men most of them out-iif-towners have been collared the past three weeks by a Dallas policewom- an posing in bars and clubs as a prostitute. However, she says she dues nol entice the men and that there is no arrest unless the man offers her money and they leave the bar. "Wasn't Looking" "I wasn't even looking for a girl." Ihe student said. "I saw Ihis girl alone Well, this is bad neighborhood to be walking around in at night so I stopped. "I asked her what she was loing and she said. 'Nothing.' So I asked if she'd like to go ii a movie. She said. 'N'o.' 'hen I asked if she wanted In go to a club or go riding ii round. 'She said she couldn't pay ier rent if she went riding iround and then I realixed she was a prostitute 'he student said he "didn't vant to say anything outright, I had heard about fficers posing as prostitutes nil I didn't intend to offer her iioney and gel caught."

She says there was an obvious attempt to suppress it by a record company. "And there was no reason." she says. "My publisher told them it was a novel, but the letters got saltier and saltier.
