22 - THE LFTHBRIDGE HERALD - Saturday, January SO, 1971 'A statement of passionate faith in our future together' NIAGARA FALLS, Ont. (CP) - The general council of the United Church of Canada and the general synod of the Anglican Church of Canada met in a joint session here for the first time. The historic occasion was noted by Rev. Arthur B. Moore, the new moderator of the United Church, as he put before the highest legislative bodies of the two churches what he described as "a statement of pas- sionate faith in our future together." Tliis was the first draft of a plan of organic union of Canada's two largest non-Roman Catholic churches, reached after 27 years of uneasy negotiations. Union still is years away and no definite action on it will be taken by council and synod at these meetings. The draft plan was drawn up by the general commission on church union, formed after the Anglican Church in 1965 and the United Church in 1986 agreed upon the Principles of Union, In that document they agreed to explore what church leaders call the new manifestation of the church. TIME WILL TELL As approved by the. general commission at its Toronto meeting last November, the draft plan sets out that within common principles of faith and doctrine, the two denominations NEW TRAINING PLANE FOR FORCES - The defence department is buying 25 Musketeers for use in pilot selection and primary training programs. Manufactured by Beech Aircraft Corp., of Wichita, Kan., the light, single-engined aircraft will replace Chipmunk trainers which have been in the Canadian Forces since 1948 and now are becoming obsolete. World market for paper, pulp products threatened MONTREAL (CP) - R. M. Fowler, president of the Canadian Pulp and Paper Association, said Friday access to major world markets for Canadian pulp and paper products "is seriously threatened." He told the association's 58th annual meeting that Canada will be left as the only industrial country in the world that does not have free access to a market of at least 100 million people if Britain and other European nations succeed in entering the Common Market. "If Britain and others gain entry this time, the enlarged European Economic Community is likely to be a much more protective and inward-looking trad^ iirg bloc than it would have been in 1963." If no special accommodation is made for Canadian pulp and paper products, said Mr, Fowler, "we will be facing tariffs and quotas on pulps, newsprint, Cable rights urged for broadcasters TORONTO (CP- - Private broadcasters should be given first option to develop cable television systems so they can plow the profits back into Canadian programming, CTV president Murray Chercover says. He told the Empire Club the profits would help produce programs that would meet new Canadian-content regulations of the Canadian Radio-Television Commission. Mr. Chercover said the CRTC regulation requiring stations to broadcast 60-per-cent Canadian content by 1972 would cause chaos within the industry. Snowstorm hits areas of Ontario By THE CANADIAN PRESS The second major snowstorm to hit southern Ontario this week moved into Quebec today, leaving at least four inches of snow, and up to a foot in some areas, in its wake. The weather office said southern Ontario at noon was experiencing high winds and colder temperatures in the wake of the storm front. Provincial police reported poor road conditions in most southern areas with several highways blocked in the Strat- "The massive increase in domestic programming imposed on us requires the expenditure of huge sums of money at precisely the same time as the rapid expansion of cable TV is fragmenting the Canadian audiences and diminishing the industry's viability," he said. He said if control of cable TV systems by private broadcasters is not feasible, consideration should be given to operating them as public utilities. Because the 1968 Broadcasting Act gave broadcasters the task of preserving the national identity, "ownership of cable should as a policy be given first to broadcasters." If necessary, this should be done "through some form of trust to ensure independent program control in the public interest." He called the government regulations "unproductive" and said broadcasters should be freed from them "to give free rein to our Canadian ingenuity.' He said the CRTC, which will hold hearings in Montreal April 26 on cable TV policies, should realize that "quality and quantity are not synonymous." "CTV over the past five years concentrated its resources and the bulk of its program budgets on improved news services and on an admittedly moderate number of Canadian entertainment programs. "And lo and behold, we've been able to compete. The Ca-n a d i a n audiences invariably tune to Canadian news and in- fine papers and packaging materials which now enter Britain duty-free under GATT arrangements and Commonwealth preferences." "I think the minimum Canada should do in the prospect of British entry is to fight vigorously for a reasonable accommodation in terms of entry for our commodities," On the subject of tax burdens facing the industry, Mr. Fowler said: "A very strong case can be made for general tax cuts to stimulate private investment and reduce inflationary pressures. They were used with great success in the United States a few years ago and would today in Canada be the quickest and most effective way to bring economic performance back closer to potential. "In the process, we would reduce unemployment and provide new jobs for our rapidly growing labor force." The key question for the whole Canadian economy and particularly for the pulp and paper industry is what happens in the American economy in 1971, said Mr. Fowler. "I think the American recovery is already under way and may gain momentum rapidly and massively. . . ." would continue to worship as they do now, permitting time to | bring the memberships closer together. Many members of both churches oppose union and Dr. Moore said areas of "tension and sensitivity" still exist and some conflicts are unresolved. But the ulan gave "a glimpse of the exciting possibilities ahead in which divisions wh'ch now fragment us will have been removed." Dr. D. C. Masters of Guelph University, an Anglican, rose to say the plan is a "juggling-up of statements on ("octrine." "I think we can worship the Lord im our different ways without trying this unfortunate experience of trying to do it together." He was answered sharply by Archbishop Howard Clark, former primate of the Anglican Church, who presented a groun of men and women of both churches who had worked on the plan to answer questions of council and synod members. Dr. Masters' remarks struck a discordant note in a joint session that, otherwise was harmonious. The two groups worshipped to-nether late in the afternoon, partaking of communion according to the Anglican form of service. AFFECTS 5 MILLION The two denominations Wive sn estimated total membership of about five million but figures are not exact. A third denomination involved in union negotiations is the 5,' 000-member Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), a Protestant group with a background of Baptist and Presbyterian doctrine. The synod and council will only study the plan here. It has been put before the memberships for suggestions and fur ther action by the courts cannot be taken until their biennial meetings two years hence. Church officials consider a referendum of the memberships possible, perhaps in 1974. Before the joint session, the United Church council ap- proved, after some acrimonious discussion, a proposal of the council executive that the church-stabilization fund be drawn upon as necessary to meet church deficits. The executive said the move was neces- Trains roll but engineers 4fecl up' VANCOUVER (CP) -Freight trains on the Canadian National and Canadian Pacific railways were rolling normally in British Columbia Friday night with the return of the last of 270 engineers who walked out for 24 hours. The work stoppage was used to hold union grievance meetings over current contract negotiations, "which began early last year. A spokesman for the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers said the men were "fed up" with wages ranging from $2.48 to $3.64 an hour.

The fund was started 25 years ago to meet contingencies and now totals $10 million. Some members protested1 deficit fi- nancing. About $400,000 will be needed from it this year to cover anticipated deficits. Dr. Eairest Long, secretary to the council, said the move was necessary "to keep the ship steady." Dr. Long retires June 10,1971. He will be succeeded by Rev. George M. Morrison of Ryerson United Church, Vancouver, whose nomination by the committee on vacancies was approved Thursday.
