Society Bishops' Vote Many Couples Fear Counselor Soys Women Must Wait By Alfonso Chardy OAXTEBEC, Mexico (AP) Bishops of Ihe Episcopal Church say (hey support the principle of ordaining female priests. A vole on Ihe issue stipulaled. however, that such ordinations must wait until Church law is changed. At their annual conference, the bishops rejected a bid to hold a special meeting next yoar on ordaining women but approved the subject for the agenda of Ihe next general convention. The Church's policy-making body, comprising laymen and clergy, next meets at Minne- apolis in 197ti. It would have to approve a change in Church law. It narrowly rejected a proposal last year for accept- ing women priests. Thursday's vote in the house of bishops was !I7 lo 35 with six abstentions. It reaf- firmed a position the bishops look al their last conference in 11172 to recommend ordaining women lo the general conven- tion. About of the Church's 2211 bishops attended this year's conference al this re- sort 411 miles south of Mexico City. Controversy on the issue was fueled in .July when four Episcopal bishops defied Church canon and ordained as priests 11 women deacons in Philadelphia. The ordinations were overruled in August. Former Pennsylvania Bishop Robert Dewitt, who look part in the Philadelphia ordinations, expressed "terri- ble disappointment" at Ihe outcome of Thursday's vote. lie said ill an interview Un- church was still "loo preoc- cupied with its own rules rather than with issues." However. Bishop .lose An- lonio Kamos of Cosla Rica, another of Hie Philadelphia ordination bishops, said Ihe church is "beginning to roc- o'.'iiixe the question." lie said he is pleased that the bishops affirmed their belief thai Momi'ii can be priests." During the debate. Bishop Stanley Atkins, of Fan Claire. Wis.. urged the bishops "not in make this great bread) in tradition only because the la- nics can't wait." He said that (ind presented Himself in the image of a male and hnst's apostles were men. lints priests must be male." But Bishop Kilmer Meyers n[ Sau Francisco, countered. I have concluded that the ordination of women will en- rich our Church with the lib- eration of humanity.' SOOTHING SOAK A baking soda foot-soak Aliens as it cleans.

By Ken Torno Family Service Agency Many couples fear going to a marriage counselor. They believe Dial it's a sign that their marriage is failing and about to break up. Though this is a false stigma, it keeps many couples from seeking help. Marriage counseling is a preventive ed- ucational process that provides enrichment and growth for a couple. A marriage is to the family tin1 same as a foundation is to a build- ing. As a marriage becomes shaky the vibra- tion can be felt through the entire family. When silent periods become longer, when contradictions over child care become sharp and more frequent, or when one male spends an unusual amount of lime with work or hobbies, il may be time lo prevent a dissolu- tion of marriage. Prevention is given a high priority in the areas of physical health, juvenile delin- quency, anil eu-n in the c.irc of the r.iiuil) automobile and other properly. that is unique: therefore, a is difficult. During the first interview, most counselors will help Hie clients become comfortable by a iitieslionitig and listening process that finds out what problems caused them to come to Ihe agency and what they hope lo get from counseling. Counselors rare- ly give advice, but instead suggest and help to find new ways of solving old problems. Problem Is Communication Marital Maturity Couples who give the marital relationship comparable recognition by seeking help al the earliest signs of discord discover new awareness uf marital maturity. Reconcilia- tion is still possible, but more difficult, when such problems as verbal abuse, an extra marital affair, or separations have occurred. What happens in counseling'' Fverv counselor has a style of working Communication is often identified as a major family problem. Bui what does this mean? Some say. "If 1 have to tell my spouse what 1 desire, forget it. 11 real love exists, lie (or she) would know what I want." This is a ninth that causes ninny marital conflicts. It's very "all-knowing" for one mate to believe it is possible to know all the other mate's desires or displeasures. It is true, however, that il one lislcus and looks for the dues being given, many opportunities for giving consideration can be discovered. Maybe this is why we have two eyes and Iwo ears and only one mouth. It is as important lo communicate "what, how and when" you want as a receiver, as it is to be a giUT. Helping couples learn lo have fair fights rather than dirt> fights in p.ul uf tin- educa- tional process. This means that each male is asked to identify a "low blow." This is a statement or phrase that really hurls. Al least then, cad) mate would know one way how to avoid hurting the other. As a couple develops more effective ways of communicating their feelings, values and attitudes between themselves, they will also become belter teachers of family life educa- tion to their children. What does counseling cost'.' Most social agencies in Linn county charge a fee bused on a sliding scale according In gross income, number in the family and special circums- tances.

Bream confined him- self to the lute and music of Ihe Renaissance, a time when the instrument knew great popularity. The sound was very soft and the audience hushed to catch every inflec- tion of Ihe music. High Point After intermission, Bream played the classical guitar. He quickly demonstrated his vir- tuosity on tills instrument with a stunning display of finger and fret work on the .1. S. Bach "Chacoune" from the Partita No. 2 in D minor. But the greatest applause was leseru-d for thf following number, a remarkable put- ponrri of aria and themes entitled "Le This was scored for guitar by Manrn Giuliani, an Italian guitar virtuoso and contempo- rary of Rossini.
