An interfaith Canada Winter Games committee, assembled to provide athlete recreational services, counselling and hospitality for the Games F'eb. 11-23, is short on funds, billets and infor- mation. Finance chairman A. W; Shackleford reported this week only seven congregations have responded to an appeal for the es- timated budget needed, to operate drop-in centres at St. Andrew's Presbyterian and First Baptist Church. The interfaith Games pro- ject needs at least Mr. Shackleford told a committee meeting this week at the Salvation Army Citadel. A re-. quest for was intended to allow for unforseen ex- penses. To date, seven replies to 39 letters has netted ?405. Mr. Shackleford added a similar request to Latter-day Saint congregations was delayed for want of a suitable address which he has since ob- tained. LAMENT A full-time co-ordinator, Bill Roycroft, has been ap- pointed to supervise the drop- in centres. Mr. Roycroft an- ticipates additional janitor fees of may be added to the budget. Mr. Roycroft also lamented discovering "high calibre paid entertainment" is being book- ed by the Games society for competing performances dur- ing drop-in centre hours. The interfaith group has been ask- ed to find gratis enter- tainment, Mr. Roycroft said. Three faith groups have ex- tended invitations to com- petitors Southminster United plans a Newfoundland contingent banquet; the Buddhists will settle for a judo team or gymnasts "for tea" and Lakeyiew Mennonite Church wants the society to select 200 athletes to come to church Sunday night.

(AP) Like hundreds of small employers, Ed and Doris Fisher hold meetings with their employees every week. But the Jackson franchisers preach neither efficiency nor profits. They discuss neither work assignments nor problems in their carpet- cleaning and custodial business. They pray. The non-denominational gathering is required of nobody at the Fishers' Ser- viceMaster Co., but Ed Fisher says most of his firm's 25 employees take part regularly. ServiceMaster Industries Inc., with North American franchises, was founded by Marion Wade, who took the name as a shortened version of "Service to the Fisher said. It is a goal that keep ths Fishers going. "I have three loves, My God, my family and my sayd Fisher. "We're working to serve the people. We're not in it just for the money." Ed Fisher was a pickle salesman working in Adrian until 1968, when he and Mrs. Fisher decided to start the cleaning business. Until this year, the franchise operated out of their home in Jackson. "Salvation" came in 1971 for the Fishers, he said, through the inspiration of Mrs. Wade, whose Ser- viceMaster motto is, "If you don't live it, you don't believe it." The Fishers began to live it. Fisher said he believes his religious revival has been the key factor in boosting his business in the past, three years. The firm was honored by the home office last year as one of its top six Service Masters. "I've seen a lot of people find themselves through their jobs Fisher said of the earlyrnorning prayer meetings. And business has doubled in the last year. upon discovering a central hospitality clearance centre will solicit billets soon on a "charge if you wish" basis. "We had been told no charges were to be made. And we thought residential billets were the responsibility of the interfaith committee. It com- es as a surprise to hear one thing from the society and read another in the new- Mr. Churchill said. GYM FLOOR Nevertheless, an accom- modation goal of 500 to be provided by interfaith groups has to date netted a total of 30 Anglican and Baptist homes. The Lethbridge Buddhist community opted out of a central pool, saying member churches would contact Buddhist congregations, across Canada inviting Buddhists attending the Games to make direct hospitality arrangements with them. "We can always roll out sleeping bags on the gym- nasium Maj. Joan Pierce of the Salvation Army offered. Rev. Derek Hoskin, curate of St. Augustine's Anglican Church and interfaith hospitality chairman, was asked to further investigate billet arrangements in residential homes. Harold Martin, pastor at Christ Trinity Lutheran, has assembled a roster of clergy counsellors available to athletes as part of Games medical services. Mr. Martin reports a French-speaking counsellor will be available throughout, although he said he had been advised this may not be really necessary. Mr. Roycroft is separately seeking up lo 150 drop-In centre counsellors, preferably young adults or married couples and not necessarily Christian. WANT WOMEN MINISTERS NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) More than 150 Methodist women ministers have sighed a petition asking that 11 or- dained Episcopal women be invited to join the United Methodist Church. The peti- tion was sent to the Methodist Council of 'Bishops. The Episcopal women were or- dained by four bishops in Philadelphia last July, but bishops in the women's dioceses took steps to prevent them from practising their ministerial duties. Jesuits irk Pope Paul VATICAN CITY Pedro Arrupe, superior- general of the Jesuits, said Wednesday Pope Paul was grieved by the behavior of the members of the order and unhappy about the way it was being run. Addressing the 32nd congregation of the Roman Catholic Church's largest order, Father Arrupe said the Pope was espe- cially wounded by members who unjustly criticized his actions and the church hierarchy. Father Arrupe said he had always informed the Pope of the affairs of the order and followed his advice. The superior-general said the violation of secrecy by individ- ual Jesuits was among the major reasons for the difficulty of governing the order and criticized priests who published his own letters and secret documents in the press without per- mission. "If these cases were to recur, the government of, the order would become he told 230 delegates to the congre- gation, which opened here last month. The order has members. Commander posted to U.K. Maj. Clarence Burrows, Alberta divisional commander for the Salvation Army, has been appointed to an international post in the London, England, headquarters.

Female ambassador approved VATICAN CITY (AP) In a precedent-shattering decision, the Vatican announced Friday that Pope Paul has approved the appointment of 27-year-old Bernadette Olowo as Uganda's am- bassador to the Vatican, making her the first female envoy to the Holy See. Never before in the nine centuries of papal diplomacy has the unwritten men-only rule been broken. Miss Olowo will serve both as ambassador to the Vatican and to West Germany, where she will reside. Uganda has about 3.5 million Catholics, more than any other African country, Vati- can statistics show. Prayer room crowded WASHINGTON (NEA) No one can say if it's a good sign or bad, but in these troubled times there seems to be an increas- ing use of the usually vacant Congressional Prayer Room. Chief Congressional doorkeeper, William "Fishbait" Miller, says "the leaders are being drawn closer to their God every day." He says the Prayer Room has been busy since last spring; he does not remember any similar sustained interest in the 18-year history of the nondenominational chamber.
