8 - THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD - Saturday, January 23, 1971 Age-old voting procedure used to name new primate By LILLIAN NEVVBERY TORONTO (CP) - When the General Synod of the Anglican agara Falls, Ont. next week, one of its most important jobs will be to elect a new primate - top man in the Canadian church's hierarchy!* The new primate, succeeding Archbishop Howard H. Clark who retired in August after 11 years in the office, will preside over the General Synod and the national executive council. He will be chosen in an age-old voting procedure from among 34 eligible bishops by the 298 men and women delegates, representing clergy and laity, at the Jan. 25-Feb. 2 synod meeting. Among those mentioned as the five most likely successors is the 66-year-old acting primate, Archbishop William L. Wright of Algoma diocese, who lives in Sault Ste. Marie, Ont. He has been a priest for 43 years and a bishop for 26. Rt. Rev. Edward W. Scott, bishop of Kootenay, is another possible successor. He was ordained in 1942 and was consecrated as bishop in 1966. He is 51 and lives in Kelowna, B.C. The bishop of Newfoundland, Rt. Rev. Robert L. Seaborn, 59, a member of the national executive council and chairman of the doctrine and worship committee, is also seen as a strong contender. He was ordained in 1935. From 1942-45 he was Canadian Army chaplain and received the French Croix de Guerre. Now 59, he lives at St. John's. George B. Snell, 63, bishop of Toronto and another member of the national executive council, is a possible successor to Archbishop Clark. He served as a dean in Calgary and in 1953 was appointed archdeacon of To- Sick culture reflected in the arts Movies insult man. animals By DAVID POLING An article in Variety noted that some 100 million people seem to be staying away from the movies. It's not that these people are against popcorn and cartoons; they simply want something better than is being offered and they will wait until it arrives. In "Have Faith Without Fear" (Harper and Row), Kenneth L. Wilson nails the reason for the disappointment of the 100 million: "A few years back, film producers listened to somebody who said, 'Tell it like it is!' and they never got over it. They discovered all kinds of things that most of us didn't know about, and they made movies out of them. To read the pages advertising today's motion pictures, you would think that lust, violence, brutality and general kooldsm prevail." Wilson observes that the motion picture pages of our newspapers are a real shocker, even for mature audiences, "What happens to some of the characters in the movies today shouldn't happen to a dog - and doesn't. We're going to have to find a more accurate way of talking about 'animal passions' or 'barnyard morals.' Such epithets insult the animals. A sick culture becomes mirrored or reflected in the arts. The confusion of man and the calamity of our moral condition is rather clear in art, theatre and films.

The Christian household must challenge such broad assumptions, and the Christian community must point to the signs of hope, change and renewal. The Bible keeps returning to this theme, because its essence is to know and understand the total perspective of life. In "Have Faith Without Fear," Wilson pushes for the balanced view, plus some apologies to the animal kingdom: "Specialists who are versed in animal husbandry may know of a prurient pig or two or a perverted Leghorn, but I doubt if it's very common. Only man has the capacity to act like something he is not. And we've been getting long looks at him in his worst moments. Not only in the movies, either, but on the stage, in books - and pul pits." What the movies need (as well as our own personal reflections) are some fresh sen sations of hope and improvement. Wilson says it for us when he \.rites: "There's surely a better world out there somewhere. This is not only the American dream, but the Christian hope, This has been the motivation of every scientist, every explorer, every social worker, every minister, every parent. Let's see where we are - certainly! "But when we f i n d out, we don't have to stay there. There comes a time when we must say, if we are able to be men, "This is not where I want to be. My destiny is ahead and I am moving out to meet it" (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) Church unity not in sight Pope declares VATICAN CITY (Reuter) -Pope Paul says deep divisions still exist between Christian churches and unity is not in sight despite progress in the ecumenical movement. Addressing crowds gathered in St. Peter's Square last Sunday for his weekly blessing, he called on Christians for special efforts during the week of prayer for the u n i t y of the Christian churches, which began Monday.

He was consecrated suffragan bishop of Toronto in 1956. Rt. Rev. Ralph S. Dean, bishop of Cariboo, is another frequently named as a possible new primate. He was ordained priest in 1939 and became bishop in 1957. He, too, is a member of the national execu Live council. Bishop Dean, 57, lives at Kamloops, B.C. Although all active bishops in Canada under 70.are eligible for nomination, some have so recently been appointed that It is unlikely they would be nomt nated. Others in poor health would make it known they could not carry the extra responsibilities. ' A. Henry O'Neil, 63, arch bishop of Fredericton and Metropolitan of Canada, announced last fall he would resign those posts Oct. 31, 1971, for reasons of health. He said in an interview he would not stand for primate. Both Henry G. Cook, 64, suf fragan bishop of Athabasca and George F. Arnold, 56, suffragan bishop of Nova Scotia, said they would not stand for nomination. The delegates will sit as an electoral college 2 p.m. Monday, Jan. 25. The bishops will form the upper house, the clergy and the laity the lower house. The general synod will be asked to approve a nation - wide referendum of Anglicans 18 and older on the question of union with the United Church of Canada. The resolution comes from a study group appointed by the church's committee on organization which has been studying what steps would be needed to effect union with other churches. The two churches have been discussing union for months between themselves and more recently with the Christian Church Disciples of Christ. The proposed referendum would be at least four year away. A resolution on South Africa will come before the synod from the national and world program division. If passed, it would call on the federal government to slop encouraging trade with South Africa and would con demn apartheid. A report of a study committee on Christian initiat i o n headed by Dr. J. R. H. Dempster, a layman from Vancouver, will recommend a change in liturgy that would eliminate the service of confirmation as a prerequis ite for taking first holy communion. The report has already been approved by the committee on doctrine and worship headed by R. L. Seaborn, Bishop of New- foundland. Truth made her free. An understanding of God, Truth, freed an Indiana woman from an infected lung and arthritis. It changed her whole life. But this is not why she came to Christian Science in the first place. It was her hunger for an understanding of God. If you are searching for the joyous freedom that comes from knowing God's presence in your life, come to our service this Wednesday evening.
