(AP i Streakers are wel- come at the Brush Prairie Baptist Church. A recent sermon was en- titled "God's Answer to Every Streaker." It was inspired by a young male streaker who blitzed the church park- ing lot one Saturday night as well-wishers were saying farewell to a couple who had just been married. Many church members were irritated by the ap- pearance of the anonymous streaker. Some members also expressed displeasure when the incident was reported on the front page of the Vancouver, Wash.. Colum- bian the following day. But Rev. Richard Temple capitalized on the furor by aiming his Sunday sermon at streakers.

Recognize witch doctors GENEVA (Reuter) A leading official of the World Health Organization says witch doctors are as vital as psychiatrists and should be given an official place in health services. Dr. T Adeoye Lambo, the organization's deputy director- general, says witch doctors' rituals are often beneficial in treating illnesses. "There is no doubt that some of these so-called witch doctors, whom I would prefer to call traditional healers, are as valuable as psycho-therapists or psychiatrists in the Western Lambo, a Nigerian, told the organization's publication World Health. Lambo said such traditional healers should be given an offi- cial position within the community so that their services can be incorporated into the health services of their respective countries. "There is no such thing as one he said. Si. Whelan nominated OTTAWA (CP) Bill Knight suggested a sainthood of sorts- for Agriculture Minister Eugene Whelan today. Mr. Knight asked in the Commons agriculture committee if the agriculture department has a pest control program which includes snakes. He said parts of his constituency are infested with garter snakes every fall. "It sounds like you need St. Patrick said Mr. Whelan. We need Saint Patrick or St. replied Mr. Knight. A department official said a control program is being worked out with the Canadian Wildlife Service that could include snakes. Young lack life goal TORONTO (CP) Aimlessness is one of the worst problems plaguing today's world, Dr. Hans Selye, director of the institute of experimental medicine and surgery at the University of Montreal, said Tuesday. He told the Canadian Club that many young people don't think anything is worth doing "and that is a horrible blow to humanity." Everyone must have an aim in life and sometimes should be prepared to fight for it. He cited experiments involving rats that were given usually- fatal doses of digitalis. Some of the rats were also given hormones encouraging them to fight and remained healthy. The others died. Dr. Selye said he learned from his experiments that it is not the stressful substance injected into the rats which makes them suffer or die but their reaction to it. These "natural laws" also apply to people under stress in their daily lives, he said. Holy Land aid sought VATICAN CITY (AP) Pope Paul VI has appealed to Roman Catholics to help maintain the Christian presence in the Holy Land. He said continued Middle East tension and emi- gration are threatening its survival. Witchcraft memory alive in Loudun By NAN ROBERTSON New York Times Service LOUDUN, France They burned Urban Grandier at the stake for witchcraft three centuries ago, but the people of Loudun think and speak of him to this day. Even Xavier Chevalier, a very modern 15-year-old knows all about the life and death of the Libertine priest, although he never read Al- dous Huxley's popular his- tory. The Devils of Loudun. The church where exorcism rites were practiced almost daily ,for years on "possess- ed" nuns, said to have been bewitched by Grandier, has been a food market since the French Revolution. The Palace of Justice where he was condemned and tor- tured now houses one of Loudun's two movie theaters. The square where he was executed is chockablock with parked cars. And the official Roman Catholic exorcist of the dio- cese takes the train up to Paris every Friday to see his Freudian psychoanalyst. Yet these intimations of modernity are only intima- tions. Old stones and old stories are rooted still in the subconscious of Loudun, as they are in thousands of small French towns. Superstition and reality merge in this place of souls just south of Saumur and the Loire River. Inhabitants interviewed were intrigued but showed little surprise when told of the runaway success of the film The Exorcist in the United States. Only Xavier Chevalier and a few of his teenage pals had heard of it. It has not been shown yet in France. Xavier. lolling in the par- lor of his grandparents' 16th- century house, nodded im- mediately when the subject was brought up. His grand- mother Anne-Marie, 76, the sparkling deputy mayor of Loudun since 1947, who runs the closest thing to a "salon" Loudun knows, gazed at him with astonishment. "What's it all she asked. "It's about a kid possessed by the ier offered matter-of-factly. TORMENTED Then the conversation turn- ed back several centuries, as it does in Loudun the minute the name Grandier is men- tioned- Even the Rev. Jac- ques De La Houpliere, the enlightened young curate who now preaches in Grandier's church, said that the descen- dants of the judges who sent Grandier to the stake Devil belief grows NEW YORK (AP) S- A new study shows people are believing more and more in the devil. The study, made by the Centre for Policy Research, found that in nine years the number of people believing the devil exists has risen from 37 to 48 per cent of the population of the United States with another 20 per cent considering his existence probable. The study also showed that absolute certainty about God's existence dropped eight per cent, to 69 from 77 per cent, although another 25 per cent believed in God with some reservations. Only six per cent registered no belief, three per cent higher than before. Clyde Nunn. a social re- searcher who reported the findings, said that "what- ever advantage God has had over the devil in the polls of the past, the devil now ap- pears to be getting his due." In an interview, Mr. Nunn linked the upsurge in devil belief to "times of great stress, when things seem to be falling apart, when there is great uncerlaintly in society and limited resources to cope with it." The study, involving a entifically selected cross-sec- tion of people, was made last spring and the re- sults don't reflect the recent movie-stirred interest in demonology, but derive from other conditions. "died extraordinarily dis- agreeable deaths" and led ex- ceptionally tormented lives. There are some in the town who believe that Grandier put a curse on the families to the Biblical seventh genera- tion before he perished in the flames. De La Houpliere described his parish, which consists of about people in Loudun and satellite communities, as rather superstitious. Less than a fifth of them attend church regularly, typical for a French small town. He said his flock was fascinated with sorcery, death, the rituals of death and the more melan- choly dates of the Christian calendar, such as Passion Week. When a parishioner comes to him speaking of being pos- sessed.' he sits down at the kitchen table with him over a bottle of wine and lets him pour his heart out. "I try not to he says gently and without the slightest con- descension. The official exorcist of the Diocese of Loudun is not De Houpliere but the abbot, the Rev. Charles Giraudeau, a baby-faced psychologist who affects turtlenecks and loud striped socks. He receives the afflicted once a week at the seat of the diocese in Poitiers, 35 miles away. The abbot once knew the ancient rites of exorcism but said he definitely would need a brush-up course now. In six years on the job he has never seen a case of "posses- sion by demons." He re- fers clearly disordered pa- tients to psychotherapists. Giraudeau himself began analysis last October, and says it has helped him to listen to his own soul and those of others "without fear." Lutheran mission leader resigns ST. LOUIS (AP) The executive secretary of the Board of Missions of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod resigned Wednesday in the latest round of a dispute between moderates and conservatives. Rev. William Kohn, 59, an- nounced his resignation during a news conference, saying he was protesting "against the legalism of the Board of Missions in its dealing with people." Kohn specifically protested the January dismissals of Dr. James Mayer and Rev. John Tietjen, the mission board's area secretary for South Asia and the president of the Con- cordia Seminary in St. Louis. Their dismissals. Kohn said, "stemmed from the arbitrary use and abuse of power within the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod." Church Chuckles by CARTWRKJHT 1260 "Get out the Bible, er, I mean the road map."
