For Mr. Owens' wooden statues all bear a striking re- semblance to Al Owens and they all wear a smile. "All my saints are smil- he says. "I don't see any point in them not smiling. It comes out that way." Mr. Owens even found a bright side to the gruesome story of St. Stephen, who was martyred by being stoned to death. "Instead of showing him gasping his last breath under a pile of rocks, I show him on his way up to Mr. Owens said. As for making the statues in his own likeness, Mr. Owens admits it's true, but says it's an mere slip of the chisel that leaves the figures with his thin-lipped mouth and pointed beard, but without the baseball cap he wears indoors ana out. The self-portraits put him in excellent company. The 16th- century engraver Albert Du- rer drew his portrait as Christ and Canadian artist Jack Chambers once painted himself as a tormented Jesus in angular El Greco style. But Mr. Owens said it isn't be- cause of any liking for other artists. "I'm not with the wood- working crowd, or the art crowd, or he said.

The donations were decided by the council's executive committee meeting at Bad Saarow in East Germany and announced by headquarters here. The money comes from contributions by member churches to the "special fund to combat racism" set up four years ago by the organization of 220 Anglican, Protestant and old Catholic churches in 83 countries. The largest grant of went to the African Independence Party of Guinea and Cape Verde Islands, working for emancipation of the African country of Guinea Bissau, recognized by the organization of African unity and about 70 nations. popularly transcendental claims -a world intelligence known as meditation, following. There is a Maharishi Inter- national University at Los An- geles, and courses in SCI are offered at Harvard, Yale and other universities, says the American director of the Indian program, David Vedovi. It is all part of the world plan which the Maharishi proclaimed in January, 1972, after seven days of silent meditation with followers on the Mediter- ranean holiday island of Ma- jorca. The aim is to set up SCI teacher training centres throughout the world. Each centre would train teachers and organizers say they hope this will mean a teacher for every people in the world. CITE BENEFITS SCI supporters say its study would enrich everyone's life, help the. individual develop bis potential and "achieve the spiritual goals of mankind in this generation." Transcendental meditation is said to eliminate mental stress and tension, improve perception and promote efficiency. It is only recently that the Maharishi has stepped up his efforts to bring SCI to the land of his birth, where gurus and mystics are in plentiful supply. The plan was launched in In- dia with advertisements in major cities offering a free demonstration "with color TV." Since only four Indian cities have television, none of them color, that was a big attraction. The color TV proved to be videotapes on a television screen showing the Maharishi surrounded with flowers explaining the virtues of SCI to a Western audience. About 200 people saw the first show in New Delhi at a community centre in a well- to-do residential area of the capital. Vedovi said 60 people had signed up for the six-week courses of 33 lessons, costing a total of about which will qualify them to spread the gospel.

Mr. Spackman chose Happiness as the theme of bis talk. He remarked that it was difficult to define happiness because it meant a different thing to different people. "Happiness is not an end but a he said. "We find happiness along the road as we live day by day.

"I always have a jack-knife in my he said, add- ing that he usually carries around a piece of wood to whittle on in spare moments. "I've been collecting wood for Mr. Owens said. "I've cut- down trees. People call to say they're cut- ting down a tree and would I like some. People are very good about that sort of thing." A crucifix he carved last year came from a piece of cherrywood he's had for 20 years. "I've got lots of that one left, in the basement, under the stairs, he said, 'gesturing at his clut- tered workshop, crammed with wood, remnants, branches, walnut blocks, door sills. "I've got more wood than I can foresee using SAINTS OBSCURE Mr. Owens specializes in obscure saints, with St. Gen- evieve of Paris typical. _ "Parisians credit her with saving Paris from Attila the Hun and his crowd. Because of her, they went off to Orleans and left Paris untouched. How? Her intercession with God, naturally. They claim that." How did Mr. Owens get in- terested in religious art? "I've always had the thought that I didn't like most of the religious art I was sur- rounded he said, adding that he was brought up in the New Westminster, B.C., or- phanage of the Sisters of Providence, where religious art abounded. "Well, it struck me as a child that it was kind of pho- ney, you know, that people are always looking up to heaven. They're always sad, pious. That kind of thing can turn you off religion." Mr. Owens has a backlog of orders for his sculpture, but bemoans the fact they're mainly for the conventional saints.' "I've done two St James in the past year and three St. Peters, and all my St Peters are in teak." Would anyone care for a St Henry of Cocket in English oak; or St. Josephat of Polotsk in Carpathian elm: or St. Phocas the Gardener in myrtle?
