Fh. 328.8161 1705 M.M. Ph. 328-7751 Church jargon must be adapted The churph must translate the "old truths of theology" into understandable, contem- porary language, says an Am- erican counsellor-teaeher-min- ister. Dr. Lynwood Walker, assis- tant professor of religion at the University of California's Grad- uate Theological Union at Berkeley, said Friday the church has suffered by not adapting its terminology on re- demption, sin and salvation for modern times. Dr. Walker, speaker at a School of Religion at McKillop United Church, said the church was caught offguard in Ameri- ca by the civil rights move- ment and discovered its reli- gious jargon didn't communi- cate with the laity. In an interview, he suggest- ed the church is "potentially the most exciting place a man can because of its at- tempts to make sense out of p e o p 1 s diversity of expe- riences. Human psychologists, with their emphasis on the human potential for growth, replaced the clergy, he said. The clergy must reclaim their position by becoming "Christian human- ists." Religion, and Christian hu- manism, sees not only growth potential, but "the transcenden- tal possibilities of the human spirit." The SO year old native of North Carolina said the pre- vailing attitude he has dis- covered during his travels, see vs for fast, expert Anglo Distributors Stereo S Photographic Centre 419 5th Street South Phone 328-6922 is "depression bordering on despair." He suggested there should be a return to such concepts as "human dignity and man's heroic spirit." The first School of Religion to be held in Lethbridge, the sessions attract- ed about 35 persons, many ol them clergyman and almosl all from southern United churches. The school was de- signed as an interdenomina- tional function. Dr. Walker told the audience the clergy must come to grips with its own biases and fears before it attempts to counsel others. "We can't appreciate the problems of others without dealing with the demons in our own lives." He contended the problem with missionaries is "not that they intend to do good, but that they do an awful lot of bad. By doing for others what they could manage alone, mis- sionaries "avoid dealing with themselves. "One's own self-hatred can be projected on other people." He said men must be willing to undergo suffering and pain in order to change, or "tragic stagnation" sets in. Among the age groups, the young and middle adults are the most resistant to change. are afraid to lose what they've just got" hi the way of material goods and status. The young are willing to "tinker with life." The old have lived long enough to know the old values don't work. Dr. Walks- suggested minis- ters must come to terms with the "loneliness implicit in lead- ership." He said the clergy need a so- cial life and must keep in close contact with their home lives, as a bulwark against mounting pressures. K-40 Club slate Dr. J. C.

Douglas Clegg, main speak- er at the weekend district as- sembly of Jehovah's Witnesses at the Civic Sports Centre, said Bible chronology indicates ,6.- 000 years of man's present ex- istence on earth will expire in 1975. The "physical conquest" of the earth by God's kingdom could come about that time or at least before 1980, he said. Mr. Clegg is district supervi- sor of 150 congregations in British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan. The semi-annual southern AJ. berta convention, which con- eludes Sunday, is expected to attract more than 800 Witness- es from assemblies south of Brooks. Mr. Clegg's major public ad- dress, Who Will Conquer the World in the will take place at 2 p.m. Sunday. He contends man's demise as rulers on earth is signalled in the current moral break- down: use of drugs, wars, vio- lence, deepening pollution and stock piling of destructive weapons. Mr. Clegg said "anarchy and Court of revision to start hearings The annual court of revision, :o hear appeals against 1971 property and business assess- ments, will be held in city hall council chambers beginning Monday. It is expected the three-man court, comprising R. F. P. Bow- man, Sam Kyle and Fred Har- vey, will sit for about 10 days.

The time limit is estab- lished by law. If a person is not satisfied with the judgment of the court of revision, he may appeal to the Alberta Assessment Appeal Board. This must be done with- in 21 days of the court's deci- sion being mailed to him. There is a fee if a person appeals an assessment other than his own. This is intended to prevent someone appealing all the assessments in the en- tire city.

Jehovah's Witnesses do not take political stances, "but we do appreciate the freedom of They don't vote or take part in armed conflicts "because we have pledged ourselves to God's not to man-made political institutions or government decisions. Mr. Clegg said Witnesses "get their lumps from people whose sons have died in wars, but their sons could have been killed by members of the same religion." He suggested people reject religion today because it has .failed them. Some clergyman are promoting the "God is Dead" theory; other churches teach mat parts of the Bible are "myths." Religion has featured theol- ogical traditions of the church rather than strict Bible-based concepts, Mr. Clegg said. Witnesses do not believe in hellfire or the Trinity. Christ is viewed as the son of God, but not God Himself. The faith also rejects abortion, and the idea that the Bible is a book "written about God, but not by God." Witnesses claim the Bi- ble is authored or inspired by God, although written by men. As to blood transfusions, which members of the faith will not accept, Mr. Clegg said God clearly condemned the misuse of blood. Verses cited are Gen. Deut. and Acts 29, 19 an 20. In the last verse, St. Paul urges Gentile Christians to "abstain from blood."

CALL AGENTS FOR ALLIED VAN LINES Sewage facilities funds assured By HERB JOHNSON Herald City Hall Reporter Mayor Ardy Anderson said today he had been assured by Provincial Treasurer A. 0. Aal- borg that Lethbridge would be able to get the necessary needed to finance sec- ondary sewage treatment fa- cilities. No grant to the city would be made, he said, but arrange- ments will be made for the city to obtain the money. While Mayor Anderson did not specify what might be done, previous conjecture has been that the city may get some form of low interest loan. An announcement regarding the financing details is expected Monday. A meeting between Mayor Anderson and Mr. Aalborg was held yesterday, two weeks after a delegation from the city had met with a cabinet committee to request financial aid in paying for the sewage treatment facilities. The city has been short some for the million sewage works scheduled for comple- tion next fall. i While Lethbridge residents wait for Monday's announce- ment on how the money will be financed, opposition to develop- ment of the city's west side re- mains firm in some quarters. Two people who opposed' the move west in 1968 today say their fears have been realized and toe predicted financial crisis has come to pass. The situation right now is that if the city can make the right kind of financing ar- rangements on the money needed for the sewage treat- ment facilities, it will be in a Band concert on Monday Student bands from Leth- bridge Collegiate Institute and Gilbert Paterson Junior High School will give a joint band concert Monday night at the Yates Memorial Centre. The groups, conducted by mu- sic teacher Jerry Pokamey, consist of the LCI concert and stage bands, and Paterson stage band and concert band, with the latter split into Grade 7, 8 and 9 bands. About 200 students are In- volved. The bands perform regularly at their respective schools for sjjorts events, pep rallies and assemblies. The concert starts at 8 p.m. SMILEY'S PLUMBING BASEMENT BATHROOMS REMODELLING Phone 328-2176 HAMILTON'S FLOOR COVERING LTD. COMPLETE CARPET AND LINOLEUM INSTALLATION 909 3rd Avo. S. Ph. 327-5454 good financial position to ahead with providing services to Phase One of west side de- velopment this year, as sched- uled. If not, services will have to be cut to'a minimum or delay- ed a year. Msyor Anderson's announcement today indicates the city may be able to work its way out of the financial im- passe. Even Ericksen, who voiced opposition as an alderman at the time the move to the west side was being considered, told The Herald the city is current- ly experiencing the "great fi- nancial burden" he had fore- cast. One problem, he said, was that projects such as the new library had been postponed, with the result that their cost is going to be higher. He noted that the library cost, estimated at in 1968, had now rei-ched an estimated Looking ahead to the opening of the new University of Left- bridge campus next fall, he forecast increasing pressure on the city to build the proposed bridge at 6th Ave. S. Costs are going to be high, he said, be- cause now that the west side is part of the city, the province cannot be expected to pay for the bridge. About 40 to 50 pea- cent would probably have to be borne by the city, he said. Lethbridge MLA John Lan- deryou said his position hadn't changed, lie still thought it was "the most stupid tiling a small city could do." He said it was not good business to start a new city across the river when "you can't pay for the one you've got." Mr. said the move had been made too early, by about 20 years, and it was going to take the city about that long to recover its Invest- ment on the west side.
