Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 16, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Presbyterian leader encourages China concern TORONTO (CP) A former moderator of the Presbyterian Church in Canada urged the church's general assembly Thursday to develop a concern for the people of China. Rev. E. H. Johnson, now a staff member of the Board of World Mission, was a mis- sionary in China 35 years ago. He told the assembly he had made contact with small groups of Christians in some of the larger centres who are trying to think through the most effective way of giving witness to their new society. An elder from Thunder Bay, 0 n t., Gordon McCutcheon, asked "what will be the reac- tion of the people in Taiwan where we have worked as a church for more than 100 years" Dr. Johnson replied that we must see the world, not in polit- ical terms, but in Christ's terms. The integrity of our mission in Taiwan, he said, demands that we have a concern for Christ's people in China as well. Rev. A. E. Morrison of Truro, N.S., asked the Board of World Mission to give priority to pro- grams having to do with devel- opment of people rather than property. Dr. Morrison, home mission superintendent for the Atlantic synod, said too much planning and support involves the erec- tion and maintenance of church buildings rather than a concern for people in the community. The general assembly agreed to raise the pensions of retired ministers to from annually, effective last January, following a recom- mendation by the church's pen- sion board. The assembly also approved a new pension scheme involving increased contributions by both ministers and congregations which will provide for an an- nual pension by 1974 of at least Catherine Webster represented St. Andrew's Presbyterian Chtnrch, Lethbridge, as a dele- gate to the assembly.

PHILIPS FREDERICTON (CP) When a cty is of divided opin- ion about its birth date, how does it go about celebrating its anniversary In Fredericton the solution has been easy: Simply select a time that disregards both disputed dates. When the city launches a week-Jong celebration July 1, it will commemorate the 125th anniversary if its civil incor- poration on March That was an anti-climax. By the 1840s it was thought in London that the growing prov- ince of New Brunswick should receive the benefit of the es- tablished church. The prov- ince should become the eccle- siastical diocese of Frederic- ton and the capital itself should become a cathedral city. But Fredericton at that time was far below the 10.000 popu- lation usually requisite to civil incorporation. This was no problem to Queen Victoria. As supreme head of the Church of Eng- land she issued letters-patent under date of April 25, 1845, which "did ordain and consti- tute the Town of Fredericton to be a Bishop's See and Ghurch Chuckles byCARTWRIGHT M34- "I fold him 1 was his replacement. I meant fe say VACATION the seat of the said Bishop and proclaim that the said Town of Fredericton shall henceforth be a City and be called the City of Frederic- ton." Pursuant to the letters-pat- ent, Rev. John Medley came from England as first bishop of Fredericton, set about the organization of the diocese and undertook the building of Christ Church Cathedral. The edifice was dedicated Aug. 31, 1853. After the royal proclama- tion the provincial legislature waited three years to pass "An Act to Incorporate the Citv of along with an act to provide for a city hall and another to pro- vide for a public clock in the capital city. Rt. Rev. Harold L. Nutter, present bishop of Fredericton, and Very Rev. Rhodes Cooper, dean of Christ Church, consider that Freder- icton owes city status to the letters-patent of April Mayor J. W. Bird and his celebration manager, Peter Snowball, hold for the civil in- corporation of March 30, 1848. Thsy note that the city's first mayor, one J. Simnson, did not hold office until 1849. On June 25 the old city and surrounding areas will elect a mayor and 16 aldermen for a Greater Fredericton amal- gamation drafted by the pro- vincial authority. The city area will increase to 51 from 23 square miles and its popu- lation of will be dou- bled. When Greater Fredericton begins its celebration on July 1, the stately Christ Church will doubtless add its chime of 15 bells to the joyful sound, though some Anglicans may detect a note of gentle admon- ition. Religious beggar gets few donations TORONTO (CP) Three so- ciology students have conclud- ed that if you live in Toronto you're more likely to get mur- dered on a Friday than any other day and your basement and living room are the most probable places. Teresa Pittelli, Sophie Popa- diuk and Brigida Cesta of Scar- borough College came to these conclusions after viewing three years of microfilmisd newspap- ers. Three oifcer students, Salva- toro Merenda, Tony Strelzw and Fernando Ferrucci, did a study of panhandling. They played the roles of a vagrant, cripple and religious beggar. The study showed men and students were most ganerous. Of those asked for donations, 82 per cent gave to the handi- capped man, 40 per cent to the vagrant and 16 per cent to the religious beggar.
