Humphries and Elder Kim Watson was earlier shown at College Mall. Cass Meyer. Centre Village Mall manager, said this week he was a little concerned about opening the door to the LDS display. "I thought there might be a problem so after they set it up. I hung around to see. I've overheard lots of nice com- ments about the display, and not once did the missionaries use the word Mormon. One shopper contacted me saying surely there were enough church buildings in the com- munity for church programs without having groups in shopping malls." Mr. Meyer said he believes it is not the intent of LDS mis- sionaries to promote their church through mall displays. "They approached us on a family basis and we said provided there was no proselytizing, no doctrine to be discussed, it would be fine." Famiy Home Evenings received renewed emphasis among LDS members recent- ly in a counter-thrust to rising juvenile delinquency, social change and immorality in North America. Mormons conduct family programs on a regular basis in their homes, and are actively encouraged to make the sessions known to non-members.

Mr. Meyer said his office is open to other enquiries from different church groups wishing a display in the mall. He said he views these dis- plays as a public relations op- portunity for the community. Centre Village Mall Health Food Centre has a permanent display of LDS publications on shelves at the rear of the store. KEY 73 DENIED About a year ago. 14 city congregations working under the continent-wide evangelis- tic thrust of Key 73 voiced interest in a religious presen- tation at city shopping malls. At that time, mall managers told The Herald religious meetings were not permitted because they im- peded shopper traffic flow. One manager added he was afraid to let religious groups in to his mall because a number of leases were held by Mormons who, in his opinion, might object to religion in the mall. College mall manager Gary Seher said this week he too was approached "on a family basis, which we don't see as being religious." Mr. Seher said he would appreciate it. if other groups want to come in, that they contact his office first. "At Christmas, various church groups sing carols. Our policy is no preaching, no soliciting of funds. So long as' it is in good taste, it's okay." Jesus People pastor Keith Hazell, who operates a down- paper.

Mr. Beckham said he was sorry to learn the letter carried no clear Latter-day Saint identification. During the past 20 years, Mr. Beckham .aid, there has been strong instruction to all Mormon missionaries that they "do not use ruse or approach in an underhanded wav Mr. Beckham said Mormon missionaries are taught to ful- ly identify themselves as "missionaries of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints" upon opening any conversation.
