Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 28, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, April 38. 1972 THE LETHBRIDGE HERMO 7.7 Church of Canada name selected TORONTO (CP) Church o[ Canada was chosen Thursday by Ihe general commission oil church union as (lie name lor the new church thai will replace the United Church of Canada, Ihe Anglican Cliurch of Canada and the Christian Church (Disci- ples o[ Clirisl) if organic union is approved. Selection of a name was among many contentious issues [acing the churches in recent years as they moved slowly to- wards union of Canada's five million Protestants. Union of the three denomina- tions will become official only when the Plan of Union finally is apprived. This cannot come before 1974. The draft of a plan of union, adopted the general commis- sion at its meeting Lore in Nov- ember, 1970, now is before church members. It still has to he presented wilh amendment lo Hie general council of the United Church and the general synod of the Anglican Church at their biennial meetings later. OPPOSITION IN MINOHITY The United Church lias more jthan two million members and adherents and (he: Anglican Church 1.8 million communi- cants. The Christian Church has about G.OOO members scattered throughout the Maritin-.cs, southern Ontario and the Prai- rie provinces. The Presbyterian Church in Canada, a portion of which hchl back in 1025 when the United I Church was formed, and the Maptisl Church of Canada are the oilier large Protestant dc- noininal'oiis in Canada. Belli churches have said they will not participate in church union, under discussion for a quarler- L-cntury. There is strong minority oppo- sition in botb the United Church and the Anglican Church to union, lloth churches now have a common hymn book, adopted in 1971, and HICK- are many other points c: similarity in their services. The United ond Christian churches look a long stride to- wards union in 1071 when they agreed lo appoint bishops, and Iho Anglicans, in turn, agreed lo a form of church administration headed by a president. Not one of five names ac- cepted for consideration by Ihe general commission in 1970 and i passed lo church mcmterships for their views was chosen in Thursday's decision. i The five names were: Church nf Christ in Canada; Tlie United Christian Church in Canada; Church of Christ in Can- da; The United Episcopal liurch in Canada; ;md The niled Episcopal Church of Krisl in Canada. The commission's report said: "The choice was for a name lal is precise or can be used ifh facility. "We should not attempt, to arry in the name the historic haracfcristics of the united hurches or any contemporary mphasis." Most 'Rev. Archbishop How- id II. Clark, former primate of ic Anglican Church, said in an- louncing the commission's deci- ion: "It was a difficult filing lo ind a name and it is impossible o get a name for the church ifh which we all agree." Archbishop Clarlr. emphasized hat the name recommended not The Church of ply Church of Canada. Ven. Archdeacon A-ani Cut- icad of Winnipeg, an Anglican member of the commission, said he was pleased that an In- dian word had been chosen. Canada in the Algonquin lan- guage is spelled Kanada which Archdeacon Cuthead said means "clean."

Trade deficit surges WASHINGTON (AP) The 1372 U.S. Lradc deficit surged in March lo a record three-month ilgure of billion, the com- merce department said here. The department said the million deficit in trade ac- counts in March was slightly smaller than Ihe February red- ink figure, but lor January, February March combined, the deficit exceeded the pre- vious largest quarterly deficit by about SI70 million. It was during the lust three months of 1971 that the pre- vious largest quarterly deficit was recorded. A trade deficit occurs when the value of foreign goods brought info the country ex- ceeds the v a 1 u e of American goods taken out.

But it also means that consumers are not letting up in their demand for imported items. The deficit so bad last year Iliat President Nixon launched a neu' economic policy and suspended the U.S. pledge to convert dollars into gold.
