Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 14, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta J0 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD W.dneidoy, July 14, 1971 Youth Column itli Column V 1 O fhcTstory of the Church of the Streets eives Mr. Ferguson church they were raised in get. By PAUL GESSEIA EDMONTON (CP) Rev. Brian Ferguson is trying to make youths become hippies _the kind of hippie Jesus Christ was. "You can call Christ a rap- pie- he preached love, peace and said Mr. Ferguson of the Church of the Streets a non-denominational organization teaching youth who have rejected the estab- lishment to apply Christian principles to their life-style. _ With the city streets as his church, the 31-year-old ex-con- vict is called upon to do many things not expected of the av- erage clergyman: Give Bible studies to of Youth International Party, a radical political group- counsel runaways and their parents, investigate alleged cases of police brutality and help drug users on bad trips. Mr. Ferguson is ordained in the Calvary Grace Christian Church, a collection of uncon- v e n t i b n a 1 ministers and priests who left the structured church for non-denominational ministries. _ His involvement with youth began in 1960 when he was a journalist in Winnipeg where he saw "how many young people were on welfare, hang- ing around the missions." F-VLSE PRETENCES While working in Winnipeg in the mid-1960s, Mr. Fergu- son became so involved in the kids he "overdrew my bank account fantastically" and used "someone else's credit card to buy clothes for the kids." That led to two years for false pretences and possession of stolen goods. This background, along with the fact he first ran away from home at 13 and a broken marriage while still in his teens, gives Mr. something of an "in" with the street people he's attempting to help. After release from jail, he went back to working with kids and in 1969 he was or- dained a admits that his degree was gained through correspondence from a Florida college. "Alter straightening myself also had a bout with wanted to Ret into the ministry. The Anglican Church, to which I belonged, wouldn't touch me because of my criminal record and I began thinking that the organ- ized church must be rejecting olhei people too." CHRISTIAN EXAMPLE M r. Ferguson's ministry teaches people to live a life that will be a shining Chris- tian example. He helps youth sort out their beliefs so they can return to the church they were raised in, join one of the fast-growing charismatic religious groups or lead a Christian hiopie-tyne life outside of any church or- ganization. Services of the Church of the Streets are much like the Anelican or United Church, he said, but of the folk-rock type. Hymns, litany, prayers ai'l a sermon or discussion form the basis for the rceu'ar services, usually attended by about 80 peunlc. The services are hem in youth centres, parks or wher- ever space is available. Mr. Ferguson has his office in a provincial government youth building that acts as a central agency for various street services in town. Mr. Ferguson was delimited some women from or- ganized churches sueeested forming an auxiliary to Church of the Streets. "They want to get to------ the street people and counter- culture people." By street people Mr. Fergu- son means hippies, Yipies, ultra-charismatic Christians commonly called Jesus Freaks and the runaways and delinquents. He said the women have of- fered to care for children of people on welfare or single mothers, to teach child-care courses, prepare food for "crash assist homeless youth and set up a reading room for the street people- Mr. Ferguson has many plans to propel the Church of the Streets into an active so- cial force in Edmonton. He hopes to establish a year-round hostel and a free clothing store. This summer his church will be organizing datlv feed-ins for transient youth, he said. FINAL Mafia underworld branded bloody killers J.TJLVU- ____, k Navarra, of Cor HOME (CP-AP) A par- liamentary commission which has been investigating the Mafia underworld for seven years listed Italy's top Mafia leaders Tuesday and said they were "bloody criminals, kill- ers, drug dealers, persons capable of any atrocity.' In a 300-page report the commission said the Sicilian Mafia has grown out of the countryside into the cities after The pattern of the Amer- ican underworld and has be- come a part of international gangsterism. It said the Mafia men have seldom been convicted in court because they enjoyed "powerful and authoritative protection and political com- plicity" from police up to the central government. The report said Premier Emilio Colombo's Christian Democrats are among the parties which bartered politi cal protection for the Mafia's electoral support. Vicenzo di Carlo, rated as 'one of the most powerful Mafia was a Chris- tian Democrat party official and a judge. NAME 13 PERSONS Di Carlo was among the 13 names listed in the'report. It was the first time that a par- liamentary investigation snelled out the names of Ma- fiosi. One of those in the list, Tommaso Buscetta, the re- port said, is at large in the United States where he was arrested in New York hi Aug- ust, 1970, and later released on bail. Buscetta and Eosario Man- cino, another on the list, "are involved in drug trafficking and witness to the full inter- relation between the Scilian Mafia and the international underworld." Mancino is one of 33 Mafiosi exiled last month to small is- lands off Sicily and Sardinia under an emergency anti- Mafia law which allows au thorities to send Mafia sus- pects to confinement without previous trial. The biggest Mafia roundup in postwar Italy came in the wake of the machine-gun mur- der of Pietro Scaglione, Sic- ily's top criminal prosecutor, last May. Some of those exiled are onl- suspects. Some have bee'n accused of Mafia crimes and are awaiting trial. Others have been convicted but are not in jail pending hearing of their appeals. EXILE GAMBLING KING Joe Adonis, one-time re- puted gambling king of the United States East Coast, was bundled off Tuesday to four- year exile in a little mountain town. Despite his plea "it'll Mil the 69-year-old ex-rack- eteer was taken from a Milan clinic alter a month's treat- ment. The Milan court which said he still might have links with the international underworld ordered him sent to Serra de Conti, a town of in the hills along the Adriatic inland from Ancona. To Adonis' protest "I'm a sick old the court ruled that Serra de Conti should be ideal for to the sea and with several doctors available in case of need." Adonis, whose real name is Giuseppe Doto, will be con- fined to his house from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m., must report to police every Monday to make sure he does not wander away, and will not be allowed a telephone. Adonis left the United States in 1956. He had settled in a luxury Milan apartment and avoided public attention. The parliamentary commis- sion, including members from all parties from the Commun- ists to the Fascists, was set up by a Parliament vote fol- lowing the violent deaths in Sicily of nine persons, includ ing seven policemen. The off! cers died in 1963 in the explo- sion of a car which had been rigged by a Mafia gang and was intended for other hoodlums with whom it had been feuding. Those listed as the big guns of Sicilian Mafia after the Second World War also in- cluded: Michele Navarra, Lu- ciano Liggio. the brothers Giuseope and Pietro Greco and their brother-in-law, Giu- seppe Greco, the brothers An- gelo ard Salvatore La Bar- bera; Genco Husso, Mariano Licari and Salvatore Some of the 13 on today's list have died. One is Navarra, of Cor- leone, one of the Mafia's strongholds near Palermo. The report said Navarra was the major "supplier" of votes for the church-backed Chris- tian Democrats. At the peak of his Navarra was funned to death by killers hired by Liggio, his former protege who chal- lenged for power, the re- port said.

SAIGON (AP) Meo tribes- men trained and equipped by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency have siezed virtually complete control of the Plain of Jars in eastern Laos, American sources in Vientiane reported today. Except for five months in 1969, the Plain of Jars has been held by North Vietnamese and Pathet Lao forces since 1964. Meo commando teams uncov- ered1 large underground food stores. The Meo arnry is led by Gen. Vang Pao, who for years has launched offensives in the mon- soon season only to be pushed back when Communist forces take the offensive during the dry months, beginning in Nov- ember. Officials in Vientiane said they expect Vang Pao's men to attempt to hold the Plain oi Jars although they have not yet prepared permanent defensive positions. American helicopters and transport planes are ferryin] troops and supplies into Xiang khoang al-field in the centre o the plain, and U.S. B-52 heavy bombers and fighter-bomber were attacking Communist sup- ply routes to the plain. The lull in battlefield action continued across Indochina, and air activity was reduced by tropical storm Kim, which moved on up the coast after lashing the northern sector of South Vietnam with up to 10 inches of rain.
