Scholars, Israelis agree to end five-year Dead Sea scroll fued By TERENCE SMITH New York Times Service JERUSALEM - The publication of the Dead Sea scrolls is expected to be resumed shortly after a five-year hiatus as a result of a compromise quietly negotiated between Israeli authorities and an international board of scholars entrusted with the manuscripts. The compromise, according to reliable sources here con- sists of avoiding mention of Israel on the title pages of the future volumes of the scrolls, which are being published in a series entitled Discoveries in the Judean Desert. The understanding Is intended to overcome the objections of one or two of the scholars who refused to authorize publication under Israeli auspices. DELAY The scholarly editing of the ancient manuscripts came to a virtual halt after the 1967 war, when Israel occupied East Jerusalem and assumed control of the Palestine (Rockefeller) Ar< cheological Museum, where most of the scrolls are held. Originally discovered in caves near Qumran, Jordan, near the Dead Sea, in the late 1940's and '50's, the 2,000-year-old parchments include virtually all of the Old Testament and Mince pie, memories warm Anglican parish By NOEL BUCHANAN Herald Staff Writer A succulent mince pie will serve as a sermon illustration Sunday when Archdeacon Cecil Swanson conducts family worship at St. Augustine's Anglican Church, Lethbridge. Archdeacon Swanson is serving as interim minister following the transfer of Rev.. Roy Crisfield to All Saints Church, Regina. Mince pies are an English recipe identified with the religious season of epiphany, Archdeacon Swanson said. The golden crust, censer shape and fruit aroma all combine to symbolically represent the gold, frankincense and myrrh presented as gifts to the, infant Jesus, he said. 't like to have a little fun In church," Archdeacon Swanson chuckled. He smiled again as he recalled another occasion when his sermon text included reference to a bird. "I released a canary inside the church. Every time the organ played, the bird sang." Archdeacon Swanson, 84, retired from active parish duties in 1960. However, he continues to serve the church whenever he can under direction of the Calgary Diocese. Since St. Augustine's parish Involves more than 500 families, Archdeacon Swanson said he would anticipate it will take at least three months to locate a fairly senior man for a replacement. "On July 27, I will record 60 years as an ordained Anglican priest," Archdeacon Swanson said. "I would be happy if I could celebrate that event here in Lethbridge." His voice is gentle and he seems to fight back some tears when he speaks of church and community friends he knew while serving as rector of St. Augustine's for 10 years. "The babies I christened when I first came here in 1922 ar e grandmothers now," he said. "I remember Senator William Buchanan. He operated the finest newspaper west of Winnipeg in those days. I recall William Duncan Livingstone Hardy. He prepared an astrology chart for me. And I remember a very astute businessman, Ai-thur Baalim." Ordained in the little Cathedral of St. Paul, in Dawson City, Yukon, Archdeacon Swanson first served in the Indian mission of Little Salmon and at Carmack, a white settlement about 40 miles downstream on the Yukon River. Later years saw him serving as rector of St. Stephen's, Calgary; rector of Christ Church Cathedral, Vancouver, and dean of New Westminster; recotr of St. Paul's, Toronto and archdeacon for Toronto East. The Latter-day Saints are much stronger now in Lethbridge, Archdeacon Swanson said. But he expressed hope for a complete union of Christian churches eventually.

Perhaps after another 100-150 years we will see one great church that accepts both the Catholic mass and the Pentecostal preacher." The depression years of the 1930s were 'the best times for Canada," Archdeacon Swanson said. When people are confronted by common hardships, there is a closeness and helpfulness unlike at any other time, he said. THE SALVATION ARMY 1302 4th Avenue S. Corps Officers - MAJORS - THELMA M.

Delhert Johnson was named president of Taber Stake Young Men's Mutual Improvement Association. His counsellors will be Aaron Hansen and Edward Shimbashi. Changes in Taber First Ward YMMIA resulted in Kenneth Leavitt being appointed president. Counsellors are Alan Shaw and Thomas Saunders. In both organizations, other officers remain unchanged. other writings. They are regarded as the most important documentary discovery in Biblical archeology. OPPOSITION Shortly after the war, Israel acknowledged the publication rights of the original group of British, French, German, Polish and American scholars that had been assembled to translate and edit the materials. The Israelis were eager to assume sponsorship of the publishing project but they quickly encountered the opposition of some of the scholars. One scholar who reportedly objected to any Israeli participation was Msgr. Patrick William Skehan of the Catholic University of Washington, D.C. The compromise was reached after protracted bargaining here and in the United States. Under it, future volumes in the series will be identified as published under the joint auspices of the Shrine of the Book, which is the Israeli museum that houses some of the scrolls, and the two archeological institutions that have participated from the beginning, the Echole Biblique et Archeologique Fran-caise and the W. F. Albright Institute of Archeological Research, both in East Jerusalem. AGREEMENT The first five volumes in the series, which appeared before the 1967 war, were published under an agreement between the two East Jerusalem institutions and the Jordanian department of antiquities and the Pal-setine museum. The new understanding was worked out by Dr. Avraham Birah, director of the Israeli department of antiquities, Prof. Yigal Yadin of Hebrew University and the Rev. Pierre Benoit, the chief editor of the series and director of the French institution. As a result of the compromise, the next volume is expected to be delivered to the Oxford University Press shortly. It is to contain the report on the excavations at cave no. 4 by the Rev. Roland de Vaux, the former editor of the series who died in September, 1971. NEW VOLUME Another volume to appear shortly is The Book of Enoch, a manuscript from cave No. 14, edited by Dr. J. T. Milik of. Paris. This volume was submitted to the Oxford Press while the political dispute was still unresolved and is being published independently of the official series. The new understanding on publication still leaves unresolved the larger question ot the ownership of the priceless scrolls, all of which are now under Israeli contro. Several of the Qumran manuscripts were purchased by Israel but the majority were held by Jor dan before the 1967 war. CHRISTIAN TABERNACLE Corner 5th Ave. and 13th St. S.

Mr. Sanford mapped out 17 routes in the area bounded by 4th Ave. and 6th Ave. and 13th St. through 18th St. After rehearsing their doorstep speech together, the Baptist visitors called at nearly 200 private homes. Visitation was conducted between 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. The book, a modern translation of the Gospel of Luke and the Acts of the Apostles, is available for study and distribution by any church participating in Key 73 programs.
