Church officials in Salt Lake City, Utah, listed the world membership at the beginning of 1973 at That's up 103 per cent since 1960 and the growth continues at the rate of approximately 240 new members daily. In the United States there were members at the beginning of the year. That figure included in 537 stakes (dioceses) and in 35 missions. The church estimates its worldwide membership .will reach before 1979. While the growth rate is high now, however, the first million was a long time coming. Organized April 6, 1830, in Fayette, New York with six members, the million mark was not reached until 1947. But then the growth rate took off and the second million was added in just 16 years. The third million came in nine years. While the majority of Mormons still reside in the United States, the greatest growth is outside the U.S. The growth rate in the U.S. since I960 has been 77 per cent, while outside the country membership has risen 350 per cent. Much of the success of the church, during an era when there seems to be a general decline of interest in religion, can be attributed to its missionary system. More than Mormons, Ghurch most of them young people, are currently spread throughout the world, taking two years out of their normal lives to teach the gospel of Jesus Christ to others. Mormon missionaries labor at their own expense in this volunteer effort before returning to college or other pursuits. _ Most of the missionaries are young men between the ages of 19 and 21. They are serving in 107 missions in 78 nations of the world. byCARTWRIGHT Samaritan speakers walk past 'victim9 By RONALD CLARKE CHICAGO (Reuter) A 22- year-old nurse was struggling to save herself from drowning in bitterly-cold Lake Michigan into which she had fallen. An old man saw -her and asked a younger man walking along the lakefront to help. The man kept on and the nurse drowned. To try to find out why some- one would refuse to help a fel- low-human in distress, a test was conducted on 40 theological students at Princeton University. The lesson of the test ap- peared to be that the fast pace of the modern world leaves HONPA BUDDMST CHURCH Forestry Ave. School Japanese Sermon REV. N. KASAGI CENTRAL CHURCH OF CHRIST 42511th SLS. J.

The students, some of whom had earlier been asked to pre- pare a short talk on the biblical parable of the Good Samaritan, were told to go to a lecture room. As they walked across the college grounds they came upon a groaning and coughing "victim" slumped in a doorway. Twenty-four students kept on walking. Some of them had been told they were late for their class, others that they were expected there immediately and the remainder that they' could take their time. Of the 16 students who stopped to help the most had been told they could take their time. BEARS OUT PARABLE "A person not in a hurry may stop and offer help to a person in the psychologists who conducted the test, concluded in a report "A" person in a hurry is likely to keep if he is hurrying to speak on the parable of the Good Samaritan." Dr. Daniel Freedman, chairman of the department of psychiatry at the University of Chicago, said the fact that some people will walk by reflects the lack of community spirit in modern society. "Cultural norms of how to behave have begun to break down." Or. Freedman said. "It often isn't just a question of the potential helper being afraid to take action, but also a fear that the agencies he might rely on, such as the police, might get him into trouble." Dr. Freedman said one step Americans have taken toward overcoming the reticence to. becoming involved is the con- sumer movment. in which people have complained about bad products and services they previously endured. "I think Watergate also will help because people were of- fended by other people not playing by some decent game rules." he said.

CORNELL AP Religion Writer NEW YORK (AP) That curious, convoluted chunk of bread, the pretzel, was in its origin a symbol of a Christian season that began last month. And there's a move afoot to revive the custom. "Pretzels for is the name of the drive, generated in Phoenix. Ariz., to put the pretzel back into the observance of Lent, the 40-day period of penitence and spiritual renewal preceding Easter. "The idea has caught on tre- mendously here, among young and old and Catholics and Protestants." says Marlene McCauley, leader of the effort to point up the real meaning of the pretzel and restore its religious use. "It's a holy symbol of prayer and penance." she says. "It's a sign of Christian love." The group urges families at the start of Lent on Ash Wednesday explain to children the religious origin of the pre- tzel, to serve it on each plate each day of Lent at the evening meal, opening with a "pretzel prayer." The prayer, recalling early Christian use of the pretzel. goes in part: "Grant us, we pray, that we too, may be reminded by the daily sight of these pretzels to observe the holy season of Lent with true devotion and great spiritual fruit" As for the pretzel's origins. Rev. Francis X. Weiser of Boston, a Roman Catholic scholar on the history of Christian customs, says "it sounds surprising, but the pretzel has a deep spiritual meaning for Lent" He says the pretzel first was made by Chrir'Jans in the fifth century as Lenten bread, since it consists only of water, flour and salt also yeast nowadays, but without eggs or milk forbidden in Lent in ancient times. "It still shows the form of arms crossed in prayer, re- minding us that Lent is a time of prayer." says Father Weiser. Citadel soldiers to swim?
