Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 20, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 -THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD-Tueiday, August First black moderator named by U C GUELPH, Ont. (CP) The United Church of Canada chose a black man Monday to lead it for the next two years. The choice of Rt. Rev. Wilbur K. Howard, minister of Emanuel United Church. Ottawa, is the first time a non-white has been selected to head a major Christian Church in Canada. The decision came on the fifth ballot and was greeted by a prolonged burst of applause seldom evinced by com- missioners to the highest court of the church. Dr. Howard had been nominated by three con- ferences but had not been con- sidered the favorite among the eight nominees, an un- usually high number. No vote figures were announced. In acceptance remarks, after recalling how once, ear- ly in his ministry, he had been judged unacceptable by some United Churchmen, Dr. Howard said: "This time I've been accepted." Later, at a news con- ference, he said one of the "gratifying things" he sees ahead of him is helping people "learn to work together, for each other." McLEOD RETIRES Dr. Howard succeeds Very Rev. N. Bruce McLeod, minister of Bloor Street United Church, Toronto, who in his retiring address at the opening of the session, first of the week-long meeting, hit hard at prejudice, particular- ly anti-Semitism which he said was lessening, but was still present among Christians. Dr. McLeod described what DR. HOWARD he termed gloomy predictions about the church dying. There was vitality and a new awareness. "I'm not making this he said. "I see it up and down the land and felt the glowing. "We don't have to furrow our brows and worry about it and wish it were some other day that was never as good as we say it was. "There is a new openness between conservatives and liberals in our own church, between different denominations, between different faiths." The new forms of worship being tried by some churches were not "undignified efforts to appeal to the young they are a reply to the lively presence in today's world." Dr. McLeod said it was par- ticularly satisfactory to him C A R E E R S REQUIRED IMMEDIATELY Experienced waiter or waitress for Alexander Restaurant, experience necessary. Please apply in person.

Hopper cars get no co-operation j that during his term as moderator relations between the United Church and the Christian community in general and the Jewish com- munity "have improved, have become warmer and franker." "We have not at all agreed always to agree." he said. "No one has made any such commitment." "What we have done is to agree to be sensitive to each other and the place from which we have come, and to listen to each other. We have remembered that Christians are not here to convert the Jew "I've been disturbed at the extent of anti-Semitism in the church community in Canada. "In the first six months of my holding office I used to get a lot of letters but not so much now." In addition to Dr. Howard, the nominees for moderator were: Rev. Robert Rumball. Toronto; Rev. Harriet Christie, Toronto; John Black. Kingston, Ont: Rev. George Tuttle, Edmonton; Mrs. Ralph Collins, Ottawa; Rev. Ivan Gumming, Naramata, B.C. who lasted until the fifth ballot with Dr. Howard Rev. A. Leonard Griffith. Toronto. The new moderator, 62. was president of the Montreal and Ottawa conference two years ago. He was born and educated in Toronto and was ordained in 1941. He did post-graduate studies at Union Theological Seminary in New York which in 1969 gave him a doctor of divinity degree. He has served in many fields of religious education and was called to Ottawa in 1970. At the news conference, he said one of the top issues fac- ing the United Church is church union which he favors. Negotiations for union with the Anglican Church of Canada which has about 1.5 million members, have been under way since 1943. A small denomination, the Christian Church Disciplies of Christ also is participating in the dis- cussions out of which have come a plan of union, accepted in principle by the general council of the United Church and the general synod of the Anglican Church, but not yet by the church memberships. The United Church has about two million members and adherents. The new church, if finally approved, perhaps in 1977. would be known as Church of Christ in Canada. Subpoena for Nixon received LOS ANGELES Campbell said Monday he has received a subpoena for former President Richard witness at the conspiracy trial of Nixon's former domestic adviser, John Ehrlichman. Campbell said the subpoena will be served personally on Nixon at his San Clemente, Calif., home, the former Western White House. The marshal said he will serve the subpoena "within a reasonable time." The subpoena, sent from Washington, where it was ob- tained by Ehrlichman's lawyer, was accompanied by a cheque for to cover Nixon's travel expense, and daily witness fees. Ehrlichman and five other defendants are scheduled to go on trial Sept. 9 for conspiracy in the Watergate cover-up. Ehrlichman, H. R. Haldeman and former at- torney-general John Mitchell sought a delay, but U.S. District Judge John Sirica refused the request Monday. Herd donated to Russians OTTAWA (CP) A herd of 14 muskoxen will be given to the Soviet Union by the Cana- dian and Northwest Territories governments, Northern Affairs Minister Judd Buchanan announced Monday. The donation is being made in response to a Soviet request to help re-establish the rugged animals in the Siberian region of the U.S.S.R., he said. EDMONTON (CP) The manager of railway hopper cars leased by the Alberta Grain Commission to provide transportation relief to farmers says neither the railways nor the Canadian wheat board "seems happy" about extra cars in the business. Cliff McArthur, head of the Alberta feed and forage ex- change and fleet manager, said Monday the commission has experienced little co- operation and long delays in getting its cars moved. Six hopper cars were leased from an American company this spring to assist Alberta cattlemen who were unable to obtain animal feed due to railway shortages. Since then the cars have been increasing- ly used to transport screenings, rapeseed and feed grains. However, Mr. McArthur said, the railroads "don't seem to give a and are hindering the effectiveness of the small fleet. He cited an instance where a hopper car designated to be taken from Vancouver to Edmonton along the Canadian National Railway was somehow sent via CP Rail to Red Deer and then shunted off to Saskatoon. On asking for an ex- planation, Mr. McArthur said he got an off-hand reply to the effect that "it looked like a potash car, so we sent it to OPENING SOON! in CENTRE VILLAGE MALL Sears Value-packed Baby Everything tiny tots need.
