FnO Lease Wires newspaper that makes all North lowans neighbors MASON CITY IOWA FRIDAY JUNE 3 1960 7o Cop Paper rf Two No 292 Birthday of church on Sunday Some grounds for optimism on future unity By LOUIS CASSELS United Press Internationa This Sunday Christians will celebrate the 1930th anniversary of the birthday of the church The observance is known as Pentecost from a Greek word meaning 50 days It commemor ates the occasion 50 days after Christs Resurrection when the Apostles received the gift of the Holy Spirit and went forth to be gin the bold preaching missions which carried the gospel into every corner of the Roman Em pire within a comparatively few years Because it recalls an era when all Christians were of one mind and one spirit Pentecost is a traditional time for taking stock of the present divided state of the church and of the efforts that are being made to restore its unity Those who engage in such a stocktaking this weekend will find grounds for pessimism or optimism depending on h o w long a view they take THE SHORTRANGE outlook Christian unity is pretty bleak It is now clear for example that the ecumenical council which will convene in Rome in early 1962 will be an allCatholic affair with no Protestant or Eastern Orthodox participation If Pope John XXIII hoped that the council would lead to Cath olicOrthodox reunion as he ap parently did when he issued the call he has learned that the hope was premature The issue of papal authority which has divided Catholic and Orthodox churches for nearly a thousand years is still so touchy that neither side can think of a for mula which would permit Ortho dox bishops to sit in a council summoned by the Pope Within the Protestant branch of the Christian family the drive for reunion is going for ward but in low gear During the past year denominational mergers have brought the Uni tarians and Universalists to gether and have welded three Lutheran bodies into one Four other Lutheran groups are ten tatively set to unite in 1962 The Methodist church and the United Evangelical Brethren seem to be headed for early consolida tion Several other negotiations are in progress but mostly they are tentative and exploratory and no one looks for dramatic re sults any time soon THIS RECORD is not very encouraging to idealists who are impatient for immediate results But the picture looks brighter when you view it from the long perspective of history Then you are struck not by the snails pace of the Christian unity movement but by the fact that there is such a movement For the first time since the Re formation four centuries ago Christians are more concerned with drawing together than with pulling apart They have recog nized that their divisions are a scandal to man and an offense to God and they are beginning to recognize that neither side is entirely to blame for the situa tion The most fashionable word in church circles these days i dialogue It simply means that Catholics and Protestants are talking to one another in civil tones trying to understand their differences So far the dialogue has been confined most ly to scholars and theologians and it has been concerned with clarifying rather than settling disputes But both sides are try ing earnestly to expand and deepen the process of mutual re acquaintance THERE IS another littlepub licized trend in Catholic Prot estant relations and in the long run it may prove to be the most important of all It started with a suggestion by Dr Oscar Cullman famous Swiss Protestant theologian He pointed out that Jesus did not order His followers to agree on everything but he did explicitly command them to love onr an other Dr Cullman proposed that Protestants undertake specific acts of kindness and charity toward Catholics and vice versa Some European churches have put the plan into practice TWO Viv ian Leigh star of the Broadway show Duel of An gels and Ann Bancroft star of The Miracle Worker give opposing views on the

effort to discredit Ike MOSCOW UP Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev renewing his efforts to discredit President Eisenhower said Friday it is dangerous to have such a man heading a great nation And he indicated the Soviet Union could have little confi dence in Richard M Nixon as a working partner of the Soviet Khrushchev said he did not want to interfere in the forth coming presidential election in the United States But he added jestingly It is said in America that if the Russians favor a candidate fie issure to lose the election In that case we favor Nixon The Premier declared the Eis enhower presidency is a dark period in history with the Pres ident lacking in will power HE PICTURED whom he met and praised last fall in the United virtually a stooge for John Fos ter Dulles at the 1955 summit meeting Then the Premier in directly continued his recent criticism of Vice President Nixon by saying NEW YORK Broad way stage is blacked out for the first time in 41 years a victim of a bitter

Theater which has a separate contract with Equity The offBroadway playhouses expect to reap a harvest from the situation We were not so badly off in Dulles time because he did so foolish things it made it easier for us F r o m that point of view I suppose that Nixon is the best choice for us for US Of course it would be better for us if we had a wise partner but if not that is the American peoples business and they will be the ones to suffer We got a laugh with this re mark When the President is no longer President the best job we could offer him here would be as head of a childrens home We are sure he would not harm children BUT TO HAVE such a man as the head of a great nation is dangerous he added when the laughter died down President Eisenhower is completely lacking in will power he said but that does not excuse him for not ex ercising authority over such men as Nixon and Secretary of State Christian A Herter The Premier declared these two are leading the United States along a path which could bring a new war Khrushchev said that at the 1955 summit conference in Gen eva the late Secretary of State Dulles sat on Eisenhowers right T H E ONLY THING the President would
