Soviet hostility easing PORTLAND. Ore (AP) A Soviet church official attending a Baptist youth conference says the hostility between church and state is easing and church membership is on the increase in the Soviet Union. The Rev Alexsei Bichkov. head of the Soviet Baptist Union, said this week that problems remain. He said church members are banned from Communist party membership, and that church membership would probably work against a high school graduate who applies for college. On the other hand, he said, believers have certain rights and when these are violated by local officials, the Baptist Union can and does get redress from higher authorities Mr Bichkov said while the Soviet Union officially is an atheist state that discourages religion, government printing houses i ecentlv supplied them with 100.000 Bibles and other books He said faction between Protestants and the Russian Ortho- dox Church, which was the state religion before the revolution in 1917. was extreme until recently Now. he says, churches there is more binding them together than separating them Wycliffe mission report The exciting results of years of work among natives in the Philippines will highlight a presentation Sunday at 11 a m. in the Lethbndge Alliance Church Len Newell of Edmonton.

Boy preacher received in a dream LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) Roy Peden Jr., often has to stand on a box when he preaches from a pulpit, and he is always chaperoned when he preaches at night. He is only 11 Roy joined the Baptist Church when he was five years old. Now, six years later, he is preaching and teaching Bible classes. He was licensed as an associate minister last September by Louisville's King Solomon Baptist church, which is affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention. Since he is licensed but not or- dained, he cannot administer sacraments. "I got a calling by God and then I accepted Roy ex- plained He said it came in a dream. To become an associate minister he declared his call- ing and delivered a sermon On the basis of the sermon. King Solomon church decided he was ready to serve as a preacher.

Strippers Ultra Violet and Glenda Kemp receive a never- ending stream of publicity, in a country known for its strict morality and tough censorship laws. Miss Kemp, a former Sun- day school teacher, lives in a house in one of the most exclusive areas of Johannesburg and is proud of her achievements "I've got this house with this little body of she LETHBRIDGE ALLIANCE CHURCH 1202- 3rd Ave. So.

WORLD WIDE PICTURES PRESENTATION said "Things have really worked out." Her performances are helped by three which she smears over her body, a 15-foot python, which she wraps around herself, and an inquisitive puppet. But Miss Kemp maintains that her act is not sexy. "When I walk off they're brings them back down to earth." She wants to use the money she has earned from stripping to start an orphanage. Ultra Violet, whose name is Yvonne is a complete contrast to the fresh-faced Miss Kemp "Stripping is stripping." she says bluntly "It's there to ex- cite men and you give them the hottest show you can." The two get around the law by playing to private parties, but as soon as they appear to go beyond the bounds of what is strictly legal the police step in and fines result. They sometimes encounter opposition from the public when they appear in small, rural towns Clergymen have also ex- pressed their distaste for the strippers. Both maintain, however, that they are religious Miss Kemp says she prays before every show and I feel that if He didn't agree with what am doing He would have stopped me." SEATTLE (AP) New security precautions have been ordered at the Woodland Park Zoo here following the mauling last Sunday of a man who sneaked into a lion's den. Zoo officials are locking lions and tigers indoors during late afternoon hours because fewer security personnel are on duty then In past months the animals have been allowed to roam in their grottos until about 8.30 p.m. In another move, zoo officials are plac- ing rope ladders in locked wooden boxes next to each grotto so that rescue attempts can be speeded up. And finally, the water hoses like the one used by the man Sunday to climb into the grotto will be put away while not in use. Injured Sunday night was Timothy Hayworth, 26, of Seattle. Newsmen haven't been permitted to talk to Hayworth He is in Harborview Medical Centre in satisfactory condition with multiple cuts and puncture wounds from the teeth and claws of the lion which maul- ed him. However, a police report says Hayworth apparently went to the grotto to "see if the animals were tame" and to retrieve a Bible. It still isn't clear how the Bible got into the den of the 400 pound lion named Maru but pages of it were found inside the grotto. Hayworth was pulled from the moat in the grotto by Seattle Police Officer- J. Barry Phillips after a Victoria, B.C., man threw a garbage can lid at the animal. Catholics hurt by bond collapse New York Times Service BOSTON A Roman Catholic religious order and the Diocese of Reno, Nev., have been forced to raise millions of dollars to meet financial obligations stemm- ing from the near collapse of a fund in which they invested money raised by sales of bonds The money was raised, largely from other Catholic groups, after the securities and exchange commission found that bonds sold to the public were insufficiently secured because of the losses of the St. Joseph trust fund, in which the proceeds of the bonds were invested. The trust fund, set up in 1969, held investments worth million at one time, but losses cut its value to one- tenth that amount. The Attleboro, Mass., province of the Missionaries of Our Lady of La Salette, con- sisting ot 90 priests and 30 brothers, and the Diocese of Reno were reportedly the two largest investors in the fund. They raised money for the investments by selling bonds through the Chicago brokerage firm of McMahon and Hoban. As a result of the financial difficulties. Bishop Joseph Green of Reno, was required to turn financial administra- tion of his Diocese over to auxiliary Bishop Norman McFarland of San Francisco before other Catholic leaders agreed to cover the Reno Diocese's debts. Details of the investment problems came to light in a copyrighted article being published in the National Catholic Reporter, an independent weekly published in Kansas City, Mo. Under a securities and ex- change commission order of Feb 12, the La Salette fathers were required to refinance about million in debts Since then the fathers have reportedly raised about half that amount, mostly through letters of credit from other religious orders. An official of the La Salette Fathers has in- dicated that the group expects to meet all its obligations un- der the bonds. A substantial amount ot the million that the La Salette Fathers invested in the trust fund was raised by bond sales; the rest from other sources, such as loans. Through the newly formed Stewardship Services. Inc., more than half the million needed by the La Saiette Fathers has been obtained. Precisely how investments were lost could not be learned, but a number ot informed sources agreed that fraud was not involved. CENTRAL CHURCH OF CHRIST 425 11th St. S. J R CHAPMAN.

Entitled Misguided Tours, the article is written by James Taylor, The Observer's widely-travelled managing editor. Taylor cites the complaint of one Caribbean church leader to explain what he means by being devastated. Rev. Roy Neehall, secretary of the Caribbean Council of Churches tells of women tourists from the U.S. and Canada flocking to Bar- bados beaches and their beach boys each winter. "It has created a terrible problem of male prostitution. From December 15 to April 15, we can't find any able- bodied young men to cut sugar cane, even at a Neehall says. Ford learned Bible verses WASHINGTON (AP) The Bible upon which Gerald Ford's hand rested in taking the oath as president was opened to Proverbs, third chapter, the fifth and sixth verses. The White House said he learned these verses many years ago and often says them as a prayer: "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; And lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowl- edge him, and he Shall direct thy paths." Taylor notes that tourism does create jobs in un- derdeveloped countreis, but adds that they are usually un- skilled jobs, done by blacks serving white tourists.
