Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 17, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, March 17, 197} THE LETHBRIDGl HEXALD 37 No government funds for church aitl program Herald Legislature Bureau EDMONTON The Alberta jjovernment lias turned down a inquest to match provincial res- idenls dollar for dollar to aid the underdeveloped nations. Catholics recruit with TV ads MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (AP) Several Reman Catholic groups in Minnesota have bought worth of televi- siat time in an effort io re- cruit yoimg men for the priest- hood. The, half-hour program, a locally-rpcduced .film, shows the priesthood as a career of difficult study, discipline and challenge, leading to reward- ing service. The need for priests has be- ccm.e acute. Ths call to' re- cruits ordinarily is made in ssr- mcns and church bulletins but apparently it has been ineffec- tive. A recent survey by the Arch- diocese of St. Paul-Minneapolis showed the population of church-going Catholics in Hie diccese likely increase by by 1930, while HID num- ber of priests is expected to drop to alxmt 250 from the present 400. However, Premier Lougheed has lold the legislature the province may expand its pro- gram of loaning senior civil servants on one or two-year contracts.

Representatives of tiie Angli can, Catholic, Lutheran, Prcs- >ylerian and United churches made an appeal to cabinet at a ireakfast meeting in Edmonton Wednesday. The premier reported to the legislature that the churchmen had said "the per capita con- tributions by Alberta citizens matters of international aid was the highest of any prov- ince in Canada, which I was pleased to hear." Jie said the church group was invited to submit a request for the loan of government employ ees for overseas duty complete ivith qualifications desired and destination country. The civil servants chosen would also "bring back to thi province a broader expsri Premier Loughecu said Premier Lougheed said t h cabinet endorsed the clmrcl appeal, saying "it's a respon sibility cf the people of Albert to consider the problems. W said that we felt very definitely though, that oar priorities ha to be with the Indian and Meti people and the other peopl within our own province."

By PAUL HOFMANN New York Times Service NOORDWIJKERHOUT, The etherlands Differences with- thc Roman Catholic church 1 the Netherlands and between s strong liberal wing and the atican came into tha open ere at a recent three day meeting. Pope Paul's envoy, or pro- undo, the most Rev.
