Polluted city atmosphere is turning the solid sandstone into powdery white gypsum. Chemicals attack Cologne Cathedral COLOGNE, West Germany (AP) -The air raids of the Second World 'War did almost nothing to the Cologne Cathedral, but air itself is threatening to bring down the 745-year-old building. Chemicals in Cologne's atmosphere are eating away at the cathedral at a rate likely to weaken its stability and endanger some of the million tourists it draws every year. Unless the money available for restoration is doubled to $1 million a year, officials say, the building may^start collapsing 20 years from now. The cathedral's 51G-foot twin Family plan centres urged for Catholics TORONTO (CP) - Establishment of Roman Catholic family planning centres across Canada "to provide complete factual information on various methods of fertility control" has been suggested by a committee of the National Catholic Council of Social Services. The report of the Atlantic Committee on Family Planning also urged Catholic bishops "to take an active part in the setting up of family planning centres in their own dioceses." The proposed centres would be aimed at eliminating confusion among conscientious Catholics. . They would follow Pope Paul's encyclical against the "pill" and mechanical means of contraception. But they would advise on the "rhythm method" and such newer techniques as one which involves a woman in regular temperature readings during the month. The report also suggests establishment of committees to study problems of abortion. The report is being circulated to members of the NCCSS for study and may be considered by the Canadian Catholic Conference of Bishops in May.

Fourteen direct hits by explosives and numerous incendiary bombs left some scars on the intricately ornamented turrets, flying buttresses, stained-glass windows and thousands of statues, figurines and gargoyles which make the cathedral one of Europe's architectural marvels. But the building's sturdy basic construction enabled it to survive otherwise unharmed. Now industries around the edges of the city pour smoke, gas and chemicals into the atmosphere. Much of the cathedral was built of sandstone. A chemical process is turning this by degrees into powdery plaster of paris. The spreading white blight has affected one-third of the cathedral's surface. It has rotted away carved features of gargoyles and statues, loosened stones and even attacked the slim flying buttresses-the main stress-bearing elements which shore up the thin walls against the colossal weight of the iron roof. MFMI names executive Executive officers for the Lethbridge council of Men for Missions International were announced here this week. Officers are Norm Heebner, president; Allan Collins, vice-president; Emil Hartung, secretary-treasurer.

"Anyone interested in a practical, interdenominational approach to missions is welcome to attend MFMI meetings," Mr. Heebner said. The next MFMI meeting has been scheduled for March 21 at 7:30 p.m. at the El Rancho Motor Hotel. Key 73 flame burns low in Lethbridge By NOEL BUCHANAN Herald Staff Writer If you are looking for a word from the Lord, it might be quicker to bypass the Key 73 troops marshalling in Lethbridge. Although billed as a yearlong, interdenominational evangelism thrust designed to "call our continent to Christ," the troops in Jesus' army in Southern Alberta appear to be warring more with one another tlian with the devil. Spearheading Key 73, according to widely advertised re- ports, is the placement of scripture portions in every North American home. Canadian and American Bible societies have published a Key 7,". paperback entitled, Touched by the Fire. The book is a modem translation of two New Testament records, the Gospel of Luke and the Acts of the Apostles. Two months closer to eternity, area residents are still pondering when local Christiams will appear on the doorstep. If anyone is in a hurry to settle eternal questions, , they may find it quicker to visit the Lat- 'Jews plan for Jesus' troubles United Church TORONTO - Christian evangelism of Jews has caused deep concern to the United Church of Canada, a. denomination participating in the Key 73 program. "We view with deep concern the fact that some literature produced for Key 73 has suggested this is an opportunity to 'present the Messiah to your Jewish friends' and to win 'Jews for Jesus'," said a statement issued recently by the United Church general council executive. The statement was presented by Rev. W. Clarke MacDonald, deputy secretary of the division of mission in Canada. He explained that recent statements by some rabbis and United Church ministers indicated they felt there was an "anti- Army plans to ;fish for men^ Ever since Jesus instructed His followers to be "fishers of m e n," Christian evangelism has experienced ups and downs. Key 73 programs are striving for an upward swing in Christian outreach. Pastors are being reminded they are fishermen, not keepers of an aquarium. Laymen are being urged to share Christ with at least one other person during this year. Major Joan Pierce of Lethbridge Citadel reports Salvation Army soldiers will mobilize for "doorstep witness" this fall. "As part of a nationwide Salvation Army effort distinct from Bible distribution, we plan to go door - to - door," Major Pierce said. Salvationists. plan to present a Gospel message and to invite people to attend church regularly during these house caEs. Young people attending the Church of the Nazarene are conducting a fund raising campaign as part of Key 73. The money they raise will go toward purchase of a third bus for transporting children to and from Sunday school. An adult donor has pledged he will match, dollar for dollar, all funds obtained. Pentecostal Christians are considering distribution of a special evangelistic issue of their denominational magazine. Testimonies of a football player, bus driver and several young Canadians are included. "Extra copies have been ordered and will be used by Lethbridge Pentecostals in personal witness during the year," said Rev. Milton Israelson, city minister. Praying Arabs urged to avenge 'slaughter' CAIRO (AP) - Arabs were urged at special prayers in mosques today to avenge the "slaughter" of the victims of the Libyan airliner downed by Israel. Broadcast on the state-run radio and television, the prayers were offered for the victims as their bodies were ferried across the Suez Canal at Ismailia. Sheikh Ahmed Sherabasy, leading prayers at one mosque, said: "Let us all wash our disgrace by avenging the death of our martyrs. . . . "Let us wake up and unite to save the lives of Moslems and Arabs. Without such unity our existence is threatened." President Anwar Sadat scheduled meetings with the country's Supreme War Council Saturday and parliament leaders Sunday. A presidential spokesman described the meetings as "impor- tant," but did not elaborate. The meetings coincide with the visit to Washington of Sadat's national security adviser, Hafex Ismail, for talks on the prospects of new peacemaking efforts in the Middle East. Israel jet fighters forced the Libyan airliner down in the Sinai desert Wednesday, with the less of 106 lives. Semitic bias" in the North American Key 73 document used as a handbook for organizers. "We take exception to the implications of these statements, and point out that we are aware, theologically, this is not the only place many United Church people would find parts of this document less than compatible with present United Church belief and practice." The church council said it will continue to support those aspects of Key 73 which declare the good news of God'd love for all people, and to encourage their response as persons without violation of their own integrity. ter-day Saints stake house or quiz a Watchtower salesman. Lethbridge M i n isterial Association reports Key 73 programs are still in committee discussion here. "Whenever there is money to be spent such as on the Bible distribution project, our men have to be careful," Rev. Harold Jost, ministerial president said. Early March should see completion' of Lethbridge distribution plans, Rev. Keith Churchill, ministerial secretary - treasurer reports. "It is just a case of arranging finances from participating churches, and mapping out which congregation will distribute where across the city," Mr. Churchill said. Bethel Baptist minister, Rev. Norman Carlson questions Bible distribution. "I'd like to know what kind of follow-up is planned. If we are just giving out books, I don't think it is the wisest investment," he said. For some, the message carried under the Key 73 banner has given concern. At least two denominations have expressed reservations because they detect an ecumenical tone to the program. Reaction to these ecumenical cautions surfaced quite strongly at a Key 73 rally in January, g "There are some people who claim they are the redeemed," said Rev. Albert Baldeo, Coal-dale United minister. "When these people hear the United Church and Catholic people are involved in Key 73, they say no way will they participate. I think we need to start by examining the denominational barriers that divide us."
