photographer Antony ArmstrongJones Fri day in what will be Englands social event of the year AP Photofax By LOUIS United Press CASSELS International It should not be news to any one that preachers are under paid But some church members may be surprise learn just how poorly the average minister is reimbursed for his 60 to 80 hour work week Some enlightening figures are at hand from a survey con ducted recently by the Method ist Church the nations largest Protestant body Questionnaires were sent to 900 Methodist ministers selected on a sampling basis to rep resent all parts of the country and all types sizes of local churches THE AVERAGE cash salary of the ministers covered by the survey is By clergy standards this is high Other surveys covering many denomi nations have indicated that the average salary for all US Protestant pastors is around 500 So the first thing to bear in mind about this survey is that it deals with a group of minis ters who are a little bit better off than most of their col leagues Even so the questionnaires tell a bleak story Threefourths of the Method ist parsons said they are cur rently in each case some financial med ical bills a child entering col lege or something of that sort pushed the precariously balanced family budget into the red The average indebted ness is which is enough for even a man of faith to worry about WHAT ABOUT ALL those fringe benefits that ministers are supposed to get Four out of five said they have the privilege of living rentfree in a parsonage But many reported that thenpar sonages are the kind of homes that no family would choose if it had a choice in the matter large oldfashioned structures with no modern conveniences and very high utility bills The utility bills are impor tant because in most cases the minister has to pay them out of his own pocket Only one in five gets an allowance for this purpose Sixty per cent get an auto mobile allowance But the questionnaires showed that this allowance typically covers less than half of the actual expenses which a minister incurs in driv ing an average of 1000 miles a month on parish calls and other church business But doesnt the minister pick up quite a bit of extra money from weddings funerals and such occasions Nixon favoring Rockefe i but vetoes use of pressure B FROM OVR WIRE SERVICES even larger duties than thos WASHINGTON Vice u dent Richard M Nixon

reliably Tuesday thinks the next vice president should be a willing teammate prepared to assume ews in a utshell NO HE DOESNT In the first place a large number of ministers refuse to accept fees for such services Many who do accept fees simply pass them along to the church treasury And even in large churches the total take from such fees rarely exceeds a year Obviously this is a greatly overrated source of supplemental in come for clergymen In the light of these figures it seems truly remarkable that not one of the ministers in the survey plans to give up his vocation in order to seek a liv ing wage in an easier job All said they came into the ministry because they felt God had called them to that serv ice and they intend to stick it out regardless of the sacrifices involved for themselves and their families FKOM ODE WIRE SERVICES WASHINGTON Every television station in the country went off the air for a half hour at noon Tuesday and ra dio stations switched to two special
