Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 18, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta _ THE 1ETHBRIDGE HERAID Saturday, July 18, 1970 Vacation Can Be A Time For Study And Reflection By DAVID POLING President, Christian Herald Assn. CINCE many of us agree that we are making our way through a period of rapid social change, even revolution, it is well that we use our vaca- tion for study and reflection. A shelf of good books can be a faithful companion through any long hot summer. A new per- spective is to be gained when the range of our reading goes beyond the normal, best sell- ing lists. And my summer1 list does not include much fiction since the drama of pur world scene is so loaded with excite- ment and mystery. Someone in your house ought to be reading "The Game of Nations" by Miles Copeland (Simon and Schuster, The author is a true student of power politics and gained much of his experience in our State Department. His game is play- ed in the Middle East and the turf is found to be that of Mr. Nasser. Copeland traces the de- velopment of the Russian Am- erican contest through the Mid- dle East and the role of the Parish Worker To Be Installed ELIZABETH WALKEK Immanuel Lutheran Church congregation will welcome Mrs. Elizabeth Walker on Sunday at the 10 a.m. worship service when she will be installed as Parish Worker. Born at Plumas, Manitoba, Mrs. Walker received her ele- mentary and high school edu- cation there and after her mar- riage to George Walker lived on a farm in the same area for many years. She was widowed in 1959. In 1964 Mrs. Walker was ad- mitted to the Lutheran Lay Training Institute, Concord i a College, ID Milwaukee, from which she graduated in 1966. Since that time she has filled positions as missionary in the Greater Winnipeg area. Mrs. Walker- will serve the Lethbridge church in the areas of missions, evangelism, Chris- tian education, counselling and will assist in secretarial and ad- ministrative work. Mrs. Walker has two sons and four daughters, the youngest daughter accompanying her mother to this city. CIA in this arena. The author notes that various agencies of the United States government are often at odds in dealing with the same problem nation, such as Egypt. In the Far East we have seen with sorrow and dismay the mistakes of American foreign policy. Some of this was almost predicted or at least anticipated by Mao Tse tung. And since he is the dominant personality in China, we ought to be read- ing "Quotations From Chair- man Mao Tse tung." He be- lieves that "War is the continu- ation of politics." He has mit- ten that when "politics devel- ops beyond which it cannot pro- ceed by the usual means, war breaks out to sweep the ob- stacles from the way When the obstacle is not completely swept away, the war will have to continue till the aim is fully accomplished politics is war without bloodshed while war is politics with bloodshed." While in.p r i s o n, Eldridge Cleaver wrote, "I also learned that it is easier to do evil than good." His "Soul On Ice" is one of the best statements regard- ing the black white contest in America. His perspective is growing so that he can say. "I have been terribly impressed by the youth of America, black and white. I am proud of them because they have reaffirmed my faith in humanity. I have come to feel what must ba love for the young people of America and I want to be a part of the good and greatness that they want for all people." For those that don't share this feeling toward our youth, they might want to study the youth scene from a historic perspec- tive. "A Dartmouth edit- ed by Francis Brown, surveys the college community from the days of colonial beginnings up to the present. In 1810 a major faculty student confrontation erupted at Dartmouth after a "few wild fellows had amused themselves one night by collect- ing the cattle on the common and shutting them up hi the col- lege cellar." George N. Marshall's "Chal- lenge of a Liberal Faith" is an excellent study of the Unitar- ian Universalist denomination. But this is more than an out- line of a particular is a careful analysis of the ul- terior struggle that has shaken the Christian community from the Reformation until now. And Marshall's complaint is at this point: "The major indictment against the Christian Church is that in years it has failed to create conditions of peace, even though Christianity has been a dominant religion in the civilized world (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) Education And Employment Main Concerns For Minister WATERLOO, Out. (CP) Rev. Leonard Whitten, 33, is more concerned with the tempo- ral than the spiritual problems facing the 300 families who Live in his Anglican parish of Gan- der, Nfld. He's working to bring education, and1 employment to his flock. Mr. Whitten was one of 25 rural clergymen who attended the first convention of the Na- tional Institute of Church Lead- ers In Small Communities here in June. His parish contains six churches in six villages spread over 40 miles around Gander Native Church Seeks Authority Use Peyote Plant PHOENIZ, Ariz. (AP) The Native American Church of Navajoland, which claims membership of filed suit in United States District Court here seeking author- ity to use peyote in religious ceremonies. The suit asked that a three- judge federal panel enjoin the Arizona Corporation Commis- sion from denying the church incorporation, and from en- forcing state statutes against the use of the plant that in- duces hallucinaions. The church, with mostly In- dian members, claimed in the suit that the "Great Spirit" dwells within the peyote plant and through its use "the par- ticipants in the church cere- monies can communicate with the Great Spirit." The suit maintained that the use of peyote, which contains mescaline, is similar to the use of wine and bread in Christian communion serv- ices. Church officials said the peyote is used in night-long ceremonies. 'Bay, about 30 miles northeast of Gander. It is a depressed area. Mr. Whitten said in a recent interview job possibilities in the area have been reduced drasti- cally since mechanization was introduced and lumbering firms began to clcse down woods camps. Most men earn a living at seasonal occupations, such as construction and guiding tour- ists. Welfare benefits and home- grown vegetables keep people from starving, but that isn't enough without doing some "rural he said. He is a founding member of a recently-formed rural develop- ment association which seeks to improve employment opportuni- ties, and he says he is bitter that the provincial government did not help form the organiza- tion. "The gvemment has devel- opment workers but they don't encourage people to form asso- ciations. They just offer to help after it's formed." SEEK GROWTH He said the association is trying to induce lumber compa- nies to settle in the area and to assist peple wining to clear laoid for farming. Another project is a commun- ity pasture. "Some families have sheep and cattle but thtre's no place for them so they just wander around." The pasture would require the drain- ing and receding of bogland, which demands the co-operation which the association fosters. Mr. Whitten's other major concern is education. By mak- ing regular parish visits, he is trying to convince parents they should accept the new consoli- dated elementary schools in the interests of their children. He said araother part of his role is to help prepare young people in the area for life in big urban centres like Toronto. "There's nothing to keep them (in Gander I think their families encourage them to leave; they want them to have a better chance than they bad." In spite of the economic and educational problems, his par- ish is happy and debt-free, he said. "There are very few real emotional problems. I think they're content with their lot and that sort of thing. It's very Despite the high rate of illegi- timacy, "it's accepted by the community and it's taken cara of by the family. A girl has never been lacked out of her family." Mr. Whitten was one of nine children of a Newfoundland fish- erman. He studied for the min- istry at Memorial University of Newfoundland and Queen's The- ological College at St. John's.
