Out of a Igateway in one of the newer districts emerges an onion-hatted, white-bearded Jacobite archbishop, accompanied by a priest and. preceded by an attendant armed with long black staff and silver chain. Taking the evening air with a couple of lay friends comes a Franciscan friar, his black habit offset by the white rope girdle.    . Al^po, Syria’s second largest city, a large and influential ^Christian minority which makes up about 30 per cent of the population of half a million,    , To serve this community, there are no less than eight bishops of various denotniita-tions—Melkites, Maronites, Chaldeans, Armenian and Syrian Catholics, Greek Orthodox, Armenian Gregorian Orthodox and Syrian Jacobites. Many of their churches have been in the old section of the city for centuries. But now, with the rapid expansion of the city, many families have moved away from the church areas. In the new Midan district to the northwest, in one sauare alone there are three large churches either recently completed or in the last stages of construction. At the Melkite Church of St. George, now nearing completion, Rev. Ignace Dick shows visitors the beautiful leth'Century iconostasis taken from a demolished church and now installed in the crypt where services are already being held. The dragon-slaying St. George is a favorite saint in these parts and his new church, Father Ignace points out, will be used not just as a parish church but one of pilgrimage for all Christies. Even though the Chaldeans are building their great new cathedral across the square and the Armenian Catholics have moved into theirs around the comer, St. George’s is expected to draw congregations Psychic man aids archeological work NANAIMO, B.C. (CP) - A man who claims to have the ability to receive messages from the past and the future says that 6,000 years ago only a few mountain peaks stuck out of the ocean where Vancouver Island is today. “And that’s the reason you’ll find clam shells if you go up to the tops of those mountains,” said George McMullen, 53, Mr. McMullen, who recently moved here from the Toronto area, says he can sense, even see in his mind, what this particular area looked like thousands of years ago. Mr. McMullen says he has the ability to receive messages from the past and the future, when stimulated by certain objects, people and surroundings.    , Dr. Norman Emerson, supervisor of anthropological studies at University of Toron- LETHBRIDGE ALLIANCE t203 - 3 Av«.80. 10:00 a.rn.

STUDENT BRANCH diOO a.m. 10:30 a.m. 11:30 a.m. to, has carried out hundreds of experiments with Mr. McMullen, testing his abilities against established archeological knowledge. The tests, showed he did have valid and helpful powers. FIND LOST VILLAGES Mr, McMullen has done most of his psychic work in the archeological and anthropological fields, mainly helping to locate Indian villages and artifacts. Dr. Emerson says he has been correct at least 80 per cent of the time. One of the simplest explanations of Mr. McMullen’s powers is that he has a keener psychic sense than other people, just as some individuals, have better vision, hearing or a more sensitive sense of smell. “I first became aware of this sense I had when I was 4 or 5," said Mr. McMullen. “TTie main spirits I get my knowledge from are a North American Indian, who lived some 500 to 600 years ago, and two Englishmen, one who lived just after Christ and one who lived in the 1800s,” he said.    ' “I guess the best way to describe it is that I receive my information as energy, as some sort of force, but I don’t go into a trance,” PROVES CREDIBILITY Mr. McMullen has done most of his work with Dr, Emerson, whom he met some three years ago. “I'll take a coin and say where it has come from and do other tests like that to help prove my credibility,” he said. When plans were being drawn up two years ago for a new international airoort at Pickering, east of Toronto, Mr, McMullen was taken over the site. “I knew that there were Indian artifacts In the ground, and since then, the arch-eologists have been busy working there and taking out the artifacts,” “In fact, since I moved to Vancouver Island, I’ve sensed that there are Indian artifacts buried on my own land which are 3,000 to 4,000 years old,” said Mr. McMullen. “I hope to be aMe to dig these op aeon.” from them and commtinities all over the country for an ecumenical gathering every April 23, his feast day. BUILDING RESTRICTED As with private housing, the principal material used is the warm honey-colored local stone. The. city authorities have ensured that the new Aleppo will not be disfigured by faceless concrete boxes and, with the exception of churches and mosques, have limited heights to four storeys. The Melkites, Greek-rite Catholics, have half a dozen churches to serve their 15,000 adherents. Each has its priest, (St. George’s will have three), who are presided over by Bishop Neophyte Edelby. Archbishop Gregor Bahran, the octogenarian leader of 1,300 families of Jacobites, welcomes last year’s resumed teaching of the ancient Aramaic language to the 900 children in their two schools and the inclusion this year of religious instruction. “We used to have 14 schools in the north, near the Turkish border, for the 6,000 Jacobite families there but they were all closed down,” he said. “Now, we are hoping to be able to reopen at least one of them this year.” LITURGY IN ARABIC Generally called Syrians since they were in the country long before the Arab conquests, they claim to be descendants of the very first Christian in Antioch and spread into what is present-day Turkey. Today, many of the community are immigrants from that country. Thus, at the metropolitan church, parts of the litur^ and the sermons are said in Arabic. Political pressures have taught the Christian minorities the difficult art of survival. Six years ago, when the government insisted on appointing state functionaries to run the 400-odd private schools belonging to the mi* norities, the Armenian Catholics preferred to close theirs and took the matter to the courts. They won and this year the community schools will be reopening with religious instruction and their own languages being taught within the general syllabus in Arabic. At the church of Mar JirjiE (St. George again), on the other hand, Turkish and Aramaic are used as its congre-ition is almost exclusively rom Urfa, the ancient Edessa, further to the west and arrived in Syria more recently. It comes as something of a shock at first to hear the beautiful liturgy of St, John Chrysostom, composed in fifth-century Constantinople, being sung in Arabic and to hear Bishop Ilyas Yusuf preaching in the same language instead of in Greek, On great festivals, the liturgy is celebrated in the original. Bishop Ilyas himself is fluent in that language having studied and worked in Greece before his consecration. 108 passions A Tokyo resident strikes the traditional 108 gongs to drive away the 108 passions catalogued by Buddhisnn and bring In the new year, midnight, Monday. Others wait their turn at tradition at the Kaneiji Temple. Before th-j midnight gongs r.ang out the old year, throngs were already lined up at major temples and shrines. Police estimate shrine visitors outnumbered last year's significantly.

Raymond LDS wards change RAYMOND (HNS) -Several changes have been made here in the ward structure of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Douglas Paxman has been named new bishop of the First Ward while Donald Steed becomes bishop of the Third Ward. Ward boundary changes have prompted some redistribution of LDS members in the community. THE ANGUCM CHURCH OF CUNADA (EPISCOPAL) SAMT AUGUSTME’S „«."JWUfiUr" REVEREND L. FRANK LEE.
