Carnival couple claim marriage sound By DAVE AGNEW LONDON, Ont. (CP) Jim and Rita Barrett caused a stir that rippled through the Ro- man Catholic Church in the Maritimes last year when they were married on the midway of a carnival show in Halifax The marriage was called a "sham" by one priest. Det- ractors of the ceremony, staged in front of a merry-go- round with a host of "car- neys" as guests, said it would not last. On March 12, the couple celebrated the birth of a daughter, Kathleen Ber- nadette, and Mr. Barrett said the couple's marriage is sound. Mr. Barrett. 29, who now works for a London construc- tion company, said he still has not reconciled his differences with the church. However, "we are not going to let our differences interfere with bringing up our daughter in the church. Kathleen will be baptized said Mr. Barrett, and receive a proper Catholic upbringing. The couple said they may go through their marriage ceremony a church. At present their marriage is recognized as a proper civil, but not a sacramental bond, said Mr. Barrett The couple met when they were operating separate game booths for the Bill Lynch Show. Their courtship deepened and they decided they would like to be married on the car- nival grounds. Both Catholics from birth, they approached several priests to perform the cere- mony. They were told to get permission first from the bishop. They said Archbishop James M. Hayes in Halifax told thenr "Definitely not." It was explained that under canon law, "marriage be- tween Catholics should be cel- ebrated in a parish church "It may. however, be cele- brated in another church or oratory whether public or semi-public only with the con- sent of the ordinary (bishop or vicar-general) of the place or pastor Mr Barrett said he was told the marriage ceremony at the circus would "ridicule the church A United Church minister agreed to perform the cere- mony and on June 20, 1973, Mohammed joins Moses as a major movie star By HILMI TOROS ROME (AP) Wii.h Jesus Christ already a superstar and Moses the lawgiver on tele- vision, Mohammed broadens the ecumenical picture in a film to enter production soon, film sources said here.

The production was confirmed by the film's screenwriter, Harry Craig, a 52-year-old Irishman who also wrote the script for Waterloo. Craig said in an interview it took him more than 3 ye ir to complete the Mohammed screenplay: "Every page had to be approved by more than one Moslem he said Because Islam lacks a universally accepted centre, Craig said his script was scrutinized by Moslem authorities at Cairo's Al Azhar University and the university in Medina, Saudi Arabia. MANY CONTRIBUTE Sources said the film will be financed by contributions from Morocco. Libya, Kuwait and Bahrein among other Arab countries. The film will go into production on location outside Msrrakesh, Morocco, where a miniature Mecca will be built. But. in contrast to Jesus Christ and Moses, Mohammed will never be seen in the film, Craig said. This was in accor- dance with a Moslem dogma prohibif'np -i'-jge.-: i ue prophet.

Two days later, a Halifax newspaper printed a letter signed by Rev. Robert Lau- der. pastor of St. Charles Ro- man Catholic Church in Am- herst. N.S. Father Lauder wrote that the media appeared "to ridi- cule the United Church for the silly actions of one of its clergy "You prefer to publicize the abortions of Rev Harold King rather than the sincere work of genuine United Church Ministers. They would never stoop so low as to perform a circus wedding between two Christians It is a sham of a marriage." Mr Barrett said the couple have no regrets.

Turkey (AP) The animals went in two by two, according to the Bible, and for the last 100 years men have been going up by the dozens to the austere peak of Mount Ararat in eastern Tur- key to search for Noah's Ark. This summer, yet another expedition will tackle the 945-foot peak. The climbers may not even be looking in the right place. Moslems and many Eastern Christians believe the ark came to rest after the flood not on Ararat but on the much lower mountain of Judi Dag, in the Western Hakkian Mountains 200 miles south- west of Ararat. The story of Noah and his ship is older than the Hebrew version recorded in Genesis, historians say, and the origi- nal Babylonian or Sumerian version probably named Judi Dag. m the far north of the world as they knew it, rather than Ararat, which may not even have been known to them RECORDED IN KORAN The Judi Dag tradition was handed down independently of the Bible and is recorded in the Koran This year's team is led by Dr. Henry Morris of San Diego. Calif., and his 26-year- old son, John They say they have a per- mit from the Turkish govern- ment to ascend Ararat, which is in a military zone. Theirs will be the first expedition to Red Sea parting a mirage? WASHINGTON (Reuter) A physicist says the biblical story of the parting of the Red Sea may have been the result of a desert mirage. Christ walking on water also may have been a mirage. Dr. Alistair Fraser told a meeting of the Optical Society of America this week. There are photographs that produce both phenomena Dr. Fraser said that if the Israelites crossed open desert north of the Red Sea, the mi- rage could have produced the illusion of a wall of water on both sides. The Egyptian army did not really drown, if his theory is correct, Dr. Fraser said. They only appeared to drown in the mirage. To Egyptians, it was the Israelites who appeared to drown. Dr. Fraser said something similar occurred during the First World War when a British general had to halt an action against the Turks in the Euphrates valley because the enemy was lost in a mirage. hunt for the ark since 1969. At that time, a six-man climbing parly calling itself Search and led by R. E. Crawford of Takoma Park, Md., and Fernand Navarra, a French businessman, tried to assess the possibility of dig- ging out what Navarra said he had identified as a shiplike mass on previous climbs. The boat, Navarra said, was inconveniently situated at the bottom of a lake of solid ice 30 feet deep, which in turn was covered by a glacier of about the same depth. Navarra said all this would have to be removed to get at the ark. FOUND PLANKS He sought to back up his claims by exhibiting several three-foot oak planks he said he found 7.250 feet below the summit. He said university tests proved them to be years old and to have come from a tree which grew in a temperate climate. According to the Bible, the ark was made of "gopher-wood." No one has yet determined what gopher- wood was Search planned to come back to Turkey in 1970 to start DEDICATE GIDEON BIBLES at a continuing memorial Phone 327-5322 Or 327-2735 PLACED IN HOTELS, SCHOOLS, HOSPITALS, PRISONS HQNPA 3UDDHIST CHURCH 3611 Forettry 2 00 p m Malsun' Reverends Kasagi and Burkey Speaking CHBiSTJAN SCIF.NCE 1203 ith AVE S.
