Pooling of clergy s stipends suggested views on Church problem divergent views in other states were expressed today on criticism yesterday of the smallness of anglican Sti pends. A Sydney minister a methodist suggests that those with hip incomes from society we Drain is should Heln their Fellows the coadjutor Bishop of Melbourne says that income is not the primary reason for anglican clergymen s work. If ministers with an income of �2,000 a year from society weddings and donations assisted their Fellows there would be less talk of anglican ministers being on the breadline said the Rev. A. Morris of Randwick . Or. Morris who is a methodist minis Ter was commenting on a statement by the Rev. Or. A. Law at the anglican Church Congress that the poverty of the clergy demanded serious attention. In the methodist Church he said resources Are pooled and the Strong help the weak. I do not think that there is an anglican minister getting less than �250 a year however and that is enough for any Man. Many of the parishioners in their churches have to get along on far less. Disparity too masked i do not think any Man should get Rich in the service of Jesus Christ. I have always found a wonderful spirit of chivalry and self sacrifice among laymen towards clergymen or. Morris said. I do not know of anyone in our Church who gets �2,000 a year but some make �800 a year and the Dis parity Between that sum and the �250 received by others is too marked said the Rev. J. Faulkner a presbyterian minister also of new South Wales. There should be some system of Pool ing of funds by the big men to help the smaller monetary Reward was the last thing considered by Young men entering the anglican ministry said the coadjutor Bishop of Melbourne the right Rev. J. J. Booth. But parents after saving Given their sons a costly University education in some instances probably advised them against entering the ministry As was stated yesterday by the vicar of St. Johns Toorak or. A. Lawin Sydney. In 25 years experience among Theo logical students and years in a Posi Tion in which he had to interview Many aspirants to the ministry Bishop Booth said he had never had a Man ask what his income would be in the service of the Church. Make sacrifices it was necessary to preserve this spirit of adventure. It was essential that those entering the ministry should be willing to make sacrifices and take their Chance for their Faith. Every Effort was made by the anglican Church to see that its clergy was adequately paid tout it was necessary to avoid presenting the ministry As a lucrative career. Some adherents gave splendid sup port to the efforts of the Church to provide adequate financial arrange ments for the clergy but certain laity could do much More. Bishop Booth said that these people professed allegiance with the Church but did Little to support its work. Police know of suspect Melbourne saturday.

Trotting scheme trebles tote planned if necessary amending legis lation can be got through parliament the South australian from Tiff association. Eliuh tonight concluded a phenomenally successful season proposes to introduce a trebles totalisator. This innovation has been under consideration for Many months and the association has had draft rules pre pared on similar lines to a system Ope rating in India where race goers for a Small investment have an Opportunity of receiving a big dividend if they Are Lucky enough to nominate the winners of the races on which the treble is conducted. If nobody strikes the treble at one fixture the amount invested less percentage deductions for government tax and the club s commission remains in the Pool and an increased dividend is therefore on offer at the next meeting. In India recently two scotsmen received �40,000 for having picked a totalisator treble. Before the system could be introduced in South Australia it would be necessary to have the lottery and gaming act amended because there is a provision that All totalisator dividends must be declared on the Day of the fixture on which the totalisator is operating. Charity meetings the association May also seek a Opportunity daring the present ses Sion of parliament to have Amend ing legislation brought Forward to enable it to increase the period of the trotting season so that meetings can be held for Charity on five nights daring the season. If the number of trotting meetings were increased from 35 to 40 the Charity nights would occur at intervals from the beginning of the season so that the causes for which they were run would have the Benefit of summer weather. Still a further subject on which the association desires legislation is in re Gard to totalisator fractions. Proceeds from this source of Revenue for Charity have increased considerably under the system of separate win and place pools. It is thought that a new method of calculations should be devised to pre vent tiie occurrence of so Many fractions and give totalisator investors the advantage of a higher Setum for their Money without depriving Charity organisations of sharing in totalisator trans actions to a similar extent As in the past. It is considered by trotting officials that the totalisator has done More to Popularise the sport than anything else. During the first season at Way Ville bookmakers provided the Only betting medium yet the association met with financial difficulties but in the next season the totalisator proved an instantaneous Success.
