Wilkinson says the Anglican Church of Canad? should take a new look at its approach to the remarriage of divorced persons. Archdeacon Wilkinson said yesterday in an interview he of- ten is tempted to tell a couple "to go to the nearest United Church" rather face "the real rigmarole" involved in present Anglican practice. Where one or both persons in- volved has been divorced, the present system requires they NEW! PARR-MERIC ROOF COATING is the liquid plastic that is rolled, brushed, or sprayed on!

If the clergyman feels the couple has a good basis for a lasting marriage, they must fill out official forms of the dioce- san marriage commission. The minister also completes a lengthy form. These are sent to the five- member commission which meets jnonthly and must give its approval for any church wedding of divorced persons. The archdeacon said such ap- proval takes about two months and since the commission never sees the couple all it has to go en it is the recommendation of the clergyman. "How they feel they can pass judgment is beyond me." The decision whether to marry divorced persons should be left entirely to the rector ex- cept in difficult circumstances, he said. However, Cannon Roland Hill, secretary to the diocese of To- ronto marriage commission, said he is "vehemently op- posed1' to the archdeacon's po- sition. The extensive questioning opens the way for realistic counselling of the couple con- templating marriage, he said. The system also is "great protection" for the parish clergyman. If the minister doesn't think there is a healthy situation for a true marriage, "the commis- sion can say 'no' without injury to the minister's relatiliship with other members of the fam- ily." Unemployment, consumer prices Inflation emphasized in gov't statistics By RICHARD ANCO TORONTO (CP) The eco- nomic dilemma of government policy-makers was emphasized again in Tuesday's statistics of unemployment and consumer prices. An expanding economy dropped the jobless rate to a seasonally adjusted 5.2 per cent in May from 5.4 in April and 6.2 per cent a year ago. But the consumer price index moved ahead seven-tenths of one per cent in the month, a more-than-usual increase for May although below the 1.1-per- cent rise in April. At 148.4, it 7.3" per cent higher than in May, 1972. It cost this May to buy the consumer needs that would have bought in 1961. Statistics Canada says the 19S1 dollar was worth 67 cents last month, a drop of 33 cents in purchasing power. But economists say the drop is irrelevant. The price of bread or milk or' anything only mat- ten when compared with spending power. If everybody's income had gone up in the last 13 years at a compensating rate, nobody would be com- plaining. Inflation, defined in terms of price rises, is often seen the other side of the coin to unem- ployment. An expanding econ- omy to stimulate employment can produce sharp increases in prices, wages, profits and other components. KEEPING BALANCE Keeping the coin balanced on end is the trick. A little pres- sure on one side needs a push on the other. Any concerted ant i-inflationary steps risk dampening the economy to the point of higher unemployment, although not all economists agree there is a direct relation- ship between the two. To the average Canadian, in- flation represents a gouge in his ability to purchase at a given time. It has a built-in momen- tum: Individuals engage in panic buying in anticipation of higher prices; companies stock- pile inventory for the same rea- son or start up new facilities before they are needed. In simple terms, it's tco many dollars chasing too few goods with everyone trying to get an increased share of the economic pie at a faster rate than the pie is growing. Inflation takes its biggest toll of those on fixed or relatively slow-rising incomes. This places pressure on various institutions, mainly governmental, to at- tempt to modify the situation with lugher pensions, family al- lowances or even an inflation factor in income tax payments. says one econo- mist, "we do not want to level off the expansion prematurely. But neither -do we want runa- way inflation that will lead to the old-fashioned economic col- lapse." The argument is being heard that the current inflation rate is a symptom of an overheating economy, one that is growing too fast. If it keeps up tco long without some restraints it will "blow a gasket.'' A downturn and serious recession will fol- low. ROOM TO GROW Most economists, however, suggest the economy has some room to grow before it bumps against the upper limits of ca- pacity and starts depressing the labor market. "I cannot believe, with unem- plyment as high as it is, that we're anywhere near our lim- says Prof. Lorie Tarshis of the University of Toronto. Yet there is a physical limit to growth, and it takes time for economic policies to exert their effects on the course of the economy. Prof. Tarshis said the danger of a recent series of bank inter- est rate increases is that the economy may be slowed down tco much and job growth may suffer. "You know, if you put on the brakes too hard you can go right through the windshield." The Bank of Canada's three bank rate increases, totalling 1.5 per cent in just over two months, represent severe anti- inflationary moves, be said. "We have got to learn to live with inflation rather than trying to cure most economists agree. Gross national product in cur- rent dollars rose at a surprising 17.6 per cent in the first quarter this year at annual rates. Cor- porate profits before taxes in the quarter jumped 53 per cent at annual rates compared with 20.6 per cent last year and 16.2 in 1971.
