The big difference noted by "pushers" — midshipmen who put the plebes through the indoctrination — is that when you push a girl plebe too far. she may burst out crying They don’t seem to ’ike being yelled at. the "pushers” discovered.

Ordination Ceremonies Set Despite Controversey in Epsicopal Church
By George Cornell
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Amid wide controversy, ll women are to he ordained Episcopal priests here Monday , the first of their sex to he given that clerical rank in the church's history
The ceremonies at Philadelphia's Church of the Advocate wore set in defiance of the denomination s long-time practice and regulations
But in tin* view of the bishops conducting the services — as well as that of Philadelphia’s strongly disapproving Bishop Lyman Ogilby — the ordinations will stand as theologically valid, although irregular
The officiating bishops declared they were acting in obedience to the spirit of a risen Christ who summons believers to "walk in newness of life" in seeking freedom, liberation and dignity The bishops added
"Hearing his command we can heed no other "
Their course of action came in spite of a plea from the church’s presiding bishop, the Rf Rev. John M Allin. that they abandon their rebel maneuver.
"Receive the Holy Ghost for the office and work of a priest in the Church of God . . ." goes the prayerbook rite of ordination, as bishops lay hands on the heads of the new ministers.
The women become the first in the western world to be ordained through the so-called "apostolic succession" — a c hain of authority traced back to Jesus' apostles by lay ing-on the1 hands from one generation to the next.
This line is maintained in the Roman Catholic Eastern Orthodox and Anglican churches, of which the 3.1-million-member Episcopal churc h is the American branc h.
Often called a "bridge church.” it embraces both Protestant and Catholic traditions. Ordaining women in it constitutes a historic1 break-through in the1 male dominance* of the priesthood in that heritage*.
"Our primary motivation is to begin to free* priesthood from the bondage* it suffers as long as it is characterized In categorical exclusion of persons on the basis of sex," says a punt statement by the ll women
"We are fully cognizant of the risks to ourselves and others Yet we* must be true to our vocations — God’s irresistible will for us now ”
The women, ranging in age from 27 to 79. are from eight states Their theological training completed, they’ve been serving as deacons, a preliminary step to the priesthood
Most ol the bishops of their home dioceses, however, have warned that their ordinations would subject them to disciplinary action, either suspension from their work or prohibitions against filling any priestly role.
Only priests can consecrate the* elements at Holy Com mullion for Hic* church’s central service of worship
Three inactive bishops, who are officiants for the ordination are: Resigned Philadelphia Bishop Robert L Dewitt, now publisher of an independent church magazine; retired Bishop Daniel Corrigan, of Denver, former head of tlie* church’s domestic missions; and retired West Missouri Bishop FTI wa rd R Welles, now of Manset, Maine
The* ll women are:
Merrill Bittner, 27. of Webster. N Y.; Alia Bo/arth-( ampbell, 27. and Jeannette* Piccard. 79. both of Minneapolis; Alison Cheek. 47, of Annandale. Va.; Emily Hewitt, 30, of Newton Centre*. Mass ; Carter Heyward. 29. of New York City, Suzanne* Hiatt, 37, of Philadelphia, Maria Moorefield. 30. of Topeka. Kan ; Betty Sehiess, 51. of Sy racuse. N Y ; Katrina Swanson, 36, of Leawood, Kan., and Nancy Wittig, of Warren, NJ:.
Mrs. Swanson, wife of a Kansas City pastor, the Rev George* G. Swanson, is the daughter of Bishop Welles, known as a high Anglican churchman espousing Catholic traditions
"I ve looked over our canons and there s nothing that forbids the ordination of women
However, a canon specifies that c andidates for the* priesthood must be recommended by their home diocesan bishop and his standing committee, and this has not been forthcoming iii the ease of the women.
The* church at its last two triennial conventions has rejected moves specifically to authorize women priests — the last time only by a technicality in the bloc voting system, although the maioritv of delegates favored it.
The majority of the* church's bishops also have indicated approval of authorizing women priests by regular procedures, but many of those doing so have* sharply questioned the independent tactics in Philadelphia.

Flashy Chazalon, Basketball Star/ Is Idol of Thousands in France
NEW YORK — In France, they chant her name. "Chazalon. Chazalon." as she takes the court, and thousands of school girls and school boys imitate her flashy style.
She wears a spangled headband, dribbles the ball between her legs, behind her back, shoots hook shots with
winning streak of 130 games and a current streak of 60 games.
Technically, she is considered a physical education instructor, but she has done nothing but play basketball for years. The French government pays her $40(1 a month for her job plus another $4<MI a

DHAR ABBY Our daughter was recently married at a lovely church wedding It was her first marriage, but Billy had been married briefly before (the marriage was annulled)
The bride and bridegroom received a beautiful sterling silver tray from Billy’s aunt and uncle. The following card was enclosed: "This tray is not monogrammed, but if you are marred a year from now and you take it to Hudson’s jewelry store, they will monogram it for you free of charge Love, Aunt Peggy and Uncle Clifford.”
Well, Abby, what do you make of that0
DEAR INDIG: It s a pretty good bet that Aunt Peggy and Uncle Clifford sent Billy a wedding gift for his first time around and because it was monogrammed, it was unre-turnable. And they wanted to make sure history didn t repeat itself (It’s practical, but poor taste.)

DEAR ABBY: In reference to that Ph D who claimed he had traveled all over the world and had been in the company of ambassadors, etc., and that he didn’t know what RSVP meant: Everybody knows it means "Rented suits very proper.”
