PAST PRESENT" Speaker: Mr. Edward Truelove, Richard, Sask. BETHLEHEM, Israeli-Occupied Jordan (AP) Buses roll into Manger Square and discharge tourists just a few steps from where tradition says Christ was born. Hawkers hustle postcards, chewing gum and olive-wood crucifixes while the Church of the Nativity towers near- by. But beyond the tourists' the shops, alleys and municipal political currents have been awakened. The Israeli defence minister, Shimon Perez, has paid a call on Bethlehem's elders and told them: "Bethlehem is an inseparable part of'Jerusalem." Israel annexed the Jordanian- controlled Arab section of Jerusalem in the 1967 Middle East war and unilate- rally made all of the once-divided city part of Israel. Perez' remarks about Bethlehem came as a slap in the face to the Little Town's notables such as Mayor Elias Freij. For months, the mayor has been expounding the view that Bethlehem is Palestinian and that its political future can be settled only when Israel withdraws from the town it captured in 1967. The notables see only one meaning in Perez' statement: Since Jerusalem already has been made part of Israel, the Israelis must be planning to annex Bethlehem as well. Bethlehem is only five miles and a few olive groves south of Jerusalem. "Bethlehem is not a part of Jerusalem, never has been and does not need or want to says Freij. "We refuse any foreign domination what- soever." Perez' statement is the first impor- tant pronouncement by an Israeli leader on Bethlehem's future in several years. Israeli policy-makers have been busy negotiating with Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger for peace with Egypt and Syria. Contacts with Jordan, Bethlehem's ruler until 1967, have dealt only with arrangements along the Jordan River, far from the hilltop town. Bethlehem, the home of Jor- danians, is not yet up for political grabs. Withdrawal from Bethlehem, say some Israeli military men, would bring Jordanian and Arab guerrilla guns too close to Jerusalem. Others argue that in the age of missiles and super- bombers, geography is a minor factor. Aside from its poiiticai future Bethlehem has painful internal problems. The municipal budget is just over a year, hardly enough to cover inflation costs, and Freij sees no way of streamlining the antiquated tax- collecting system. Tourists bring revenue to the souvenir shops but none of it reaches municipal coffers. The Israeli occupa- tion brings the town a small allowance and Freij can borrow from Jordanian banks. He just took a loan from Jordan to build a civil centre in Manger Square. The centre is a first step in an ambitious plan to convert the square from its present status as a parking lot to a Roman-style plaza with a garden and fountains. The project would cost millions. The mayor has established the Bethlehem Foundation, a tax-exempt organization registered in the United States, to finance development. The board of gov- ernors includes American politicians and artists. Meanwhile, the Christians and Moslems of the town adapt to Western styles. Young Arabs grow shoulder- length hair. Miniskirted woman sit in Manager Square's coffee shops or go about in European cars on shopping sprees to Jerusalem or even Tel Aviv. Thousands of Bethlehemites work in Jerusalem for Israeli wages but infla- tion has driven the cost of gasoline to a gallon. Pinball machines recently came to Bethlehem, to the horror of the older citizens. Freij had all 78 machines car- ted away. "I sent them to hell where they he says. Freij, a 52-year-old Christian, com- plains that his co-religionists abroad neglect Bethlehem. "I'm sorry to say that Bethlehem is remembered only once a year, on Christmas Eve. "Christmas-card companies use our name. On Christmas suddenly everyone says Bethlehem. We are not a registered trade mark, so we can't charge for it, but we expect a little more consideration."

Archbishop Jean-Marie For- tier, president of the Canadian Catholic Conference. "In response to this gospel, there is a growing pressure across Canada for a greater sharing of our resources with other families, particularly with young nations just now emerging into statehood, and frequently beset with calamities in food and housing.

GOLDSMITH, Family Sunday School 0 a.m CHRIST SON OF "CHRISTMAS Tuesday, Christmas Eve, p.m. "THE KING IS COMING" A THREE SCREEN the Lord's coming among us, may we extend the gift of life to those who are so evidently in need." Most Rev. E. W. Scott, Pri- mate of the Anglican Church of Canada, says the immensi- ty of the complex problems of famine and food shortage, the energy crisis, inflation and the widening gap between haves and have-nots cause many to despair. "It is my hope and prayer that each of us may discover or re-discover a 'faith' founda- tion strong enough to banish despair and to nourish hope and also strong enough to enable us to face and grapple with problems which will not go away." Dr. Earl J. Treusch, general secretary of the Lutheran Council in Canada, asks whether the words Silent Night, Holy Night describe the world today when "we know poverty, racism, pol- lution, shortages of energy, even a weariness with life." But, he says, the message of with spells the difference. "Perhaps our problems today may seem overwhelming to us, but ultimately we will not have to solve them. God is with us." Rev. Dr. Hugh F. Davidson, moderator of the Presbyterian Church in Canada, says the world is learning "what the ancients have often stated, that abun- dance of things does not satisfy either individuals or communities." He urges prayer "that there will be understanding of the revealed relationship (between God and man) which gives us a sense of iden- tity and destiny that is independent of our physical circumstances." Rev. Dr. N: Fred Bullen, general secretary of the Bap- tist Federation of Canada, says many celebrate Christ- mas with excesses in food, drink and gifts. "But Christ makes Christ- mas as a lifestyle and event for decision. The smell of new hay replaces the odor of the crowded inn. The joyful pain of a mother, and the cry of a baby, points the way to new life. "Careful study brings wise men to worship and to return another way. Perfect love dis- pels fear in weary but dutiful shepherds."
