Pope Paul sick in bed VATICAN CITY (AP) Pope Paul is sick in bed, but it is only a "slight the Vatican announced this week. It was the second time in three weeks that the 76-year-old pontiff has been ill. The Vatican announcement said the Pope's doctor, Mario Fontana, ordered him confined to the papal apartment in the apostolic palace. The announcement did not describe the Pope's illness. Vati- can employees said the pontiff is suffering from a mild return of the influenza that hit him March 4-9. At the time, the Pope was forced to cancel a week-long Lenten spiritual retreat. But he continued to meet his aides and to do some work in his bed. Church Chuckles hyCARTWRIGHT A spiritual anchor for student nurses is the goal of Lethbridge Nurse's Christian Fellowship. "There is a lot of pull in any profession to tempt one to do only their second best. But when you are dealing with human lives, it just isn't good said Kathy Legg, co- sponsor of the city chapter. A graduate of Winnipeg Grace Hospital, Miss Legg feels NCF is of particular importance to studnet nurses because some girls have never previously been away from home. The NCF chapter provides a bi-weekly Bible study for about a dozen members. Meetings are conducted in Gait School of Nursing residence lounge. On alter- nate weeks, a social time is conducted involving members of the University of Lethbridge Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship. "Membership is open to any person interested in probing the Christian said Margaret Kirkpatrick, wife of 1VCF executive Larry Kirkpatrick. Usually chapters form after a request by students, Mrs. Kirkpatrick said. In some circumstances, NCF representatives will approach a nursing school for permission to meet with potential members and start a group. Mrs. Kirkpatrick said the program is mainly for students, although NCF hopes to eventually broaden its membership here amor.g other medical staff. To the best of Mrs. Kirkpatrick's knowledge, no Christian medical fellowship group exists in this area. Members of NCF share the Lutherans oppose homosexual vows AS The Canada section of the Lutheran Church in America has gone on record as supporting the province of Manitoba in its refusal to 'officially recognize a homosexual wedding. The executive committee of the LCA Canada section meeting in Toronto this month adopted a resolution expressing "whole-hearted support to the government of the province of Manitoba in refusing to register the so- called marriage of homosexual persons." This resolution came in response to the recent situation in Winnipeg where a minister of the Unitarian Church apparently conducted a marriage ceremony for two homosexuals. However, the province of Manitoba department of vital statistics refused to recognize this act as a valid marriage and refused to register it. The general Lutheran church position is that homosexual behaviour is a deviation from normal sexuality, and it is forbidden in the Bible. In other action the executive committee is asking its three synods to take action protesting conditions in Namibia and the apartheid policies of South Africa. It suggests that Canadian corporations active there be encouraged to adopt policies to "improve the lot of their and that the Canadian government be asked to end preferential tariff treatment for South African imports "until such time as the policy of 'separate development' is adjusted to the satisfaction of the black Approximately one-half of the black population of Namibia belong to the Lutheran church. The LCA-Canada section is the largest of three Lutheran churches in Canada. Rev. Dr. Otto A. Olson, Winnipeg, is president. Presbyterian tackles 'corporate' image "Wonder how many would notice the difference if I took my scriptural quotation from the Yellow BELLEVILLE, Ont. (CP) Margaret Taylor, chairman of the new board of congregational life of the Presbyterian Church in Canada, says she hopes the board can help dispel the "corporate" image of the church and introduce again the simple structure of a congregation. Mrs. Taylor, 49, of Belleville, who presided over the board's first meeting in Toronto recently, says the new board replaces a complex congregational hierarchy which was "designed to serve the church but in the end the church was serving it." The new board, one of about a dozen in the church respon- sible to the General Assembly, integrates three earlier education, evangelism and social action and the board of stewardship and men's groups and youth work committees. When the saints go streaking in By ANDREW WILSON London Observer The sudden spread of streaking (running naked in public as a means of peaceful protest) has confirmed the belief of sociologists and historians that we may be seeing a return of religious phenomena of the late Middle Ages. The first sign of this tendency was the widespread belief in the early 1950s that the world was about to end in a nuclear Armageddon. With it went another conviction characteristic of medieval eschatologv; that we had with us the Anti-Christ whose coming would precede this catastrophe. Initially tho An'j-Christ was Stalin: later, in America, it became Black Power: in Europe it became the CIA: in Paisleyii? Ulster it remained the Pope. Since then there has been no shortage of neo-medieval. quasi-religious sights the campaign for nuclear disarmament. BeaUe-worship by young girls, the Festival of Light to support the impression that history is once again repeating itself: but it is with streaking that lire 20th century is plainly reproducing 15th-century Bohemia. OFF-SHOOT The historical forerunners of the streakers who have flashed through American and British cities recently were a sect called the Adamites. They were the extreme off- shoot of a movement started in 1419 to fight the corruption of the Church of Rome and the tyranny of the Holy Roman Empire. The Bohemian Adamites felt so deeply about these matters, and also about abstruse points of theological doctrine, that they broke with the main body of Bohemian anarcho-communists, the Taborites. The Adamites streaked through town and village, preaching that God dwelt in the Saints of the Last Days meaning themselves. So unconditional was their dedication to the communal principle that, according to Professor Norman Conn, in his great and absorbing work The Pursuit of the Millennium, even exclusive marriage was regarded as a sin. "Whereas the Taborites in general were strictly monogamous, in this sect free love seems to have been the rule... and on the strength of Christ's remark about harlots and sinners, the Adamites declared that the chaste were unworthy to enter the Messianic kingdom." Further: "The sect was much given to ritual naked dances held around a fire, and accompanied by hymn- singing. Indeed these people seemed to have spent much of Jheir time naked, ignoring the heat and cold and claiming to be in the state of innocence enjoyed by Adam and Eve before the fall." NO OBJECTIVE Of course, there is bound to be much learned disagreement about the similarities or differences between the Adamites and the speakers. For instance, the pounding American streakers insist that the streak must have no objective, or at least no overt objective. Streaking for charity, or for the impeachment of President Nixon, is out. But equally one may perceive, or at least suspect, a millennial expectation on the part of many streakers that what they caii the "greyness" of bourg-_-ois society is Hearing its end. Ano.her factor that would seeir to establish some identity between the Adarrites and the streakers is the contemporary attitude of the laity towards them. According to Cohn. the Adamites were reproached by their Taborile brethren for "never thinking of earning their own living by the work of their hands" a view corresponding to sentiments expressed by the "streaked" resident of the genteel English town of Worthing last week. The fate of the Adamites is cautionary, for they later developed a belief that they were avenging angels and that it was their duty to flood the earth with blood "to the height of a horse's head." After murdering numbers of their more moderate neighbors, they were finally themselves put down by the Hussite General John Zizka. It is reported that they "went laughing to the stake." All this is a long way from the small fines imposed on streakers by British and Irish magistrates in the past few days, in one case with the judgment that streaking was an offence against park regulations. But ominously the Daily Telegraph has already drawn attention to the fact that the chief law against streaking in England is the vagrancy law. and that in 1550 the punishment for vagrancy was whipping. CANDIDATES Although the Bohemian Adamites are current favorites in the search for the streakers' ideological ancestry, there are more recent candidates. The most obvious example is the egalitarian and pacifist sect of Dukhobors who first appeared in 18th-century Russia and in 1886 were enabled to emigrate to Canada with funds provided by English Quakers. Since then, an extremist Dukhobor group, the Sons of Freedom, has periodically staged nudist pilgrimages in British Columbia, 'protesting against land tax and education laws. A Quaker sect, too. was responsible for an outbreak of streaking in 17th-century England an event of which a Quaker elder reminded readers of the Times recently. They, top, were pursued by the magistrates; and one of them. Solomon Eccles Eagle) not only went nude through the City of London, but also bore a burning brazier and cried "woe unto the bloody city." Whether streaking leads to further historical Uirowbacks may depend on the reaction of the authorities. Meanwhile, historians and sociologists are agreed that if the cuit is allowed to flourish we shall all end up by knowing a great deal more about one another. same purposed as IVCF to know Christ and to make Him known. "In our role as student nurses we have to minister to our patient's said second-year nurse, Eleanor Dueck of Coaldale. "The NCF provides opportunity to collectively refresh our memories of what the Bible has to say about conduct, values and ideals. Before we can meet patient's needs, we have to have met our own." Corf in class9 BURNABY, B.C. (CP) Former Social Credit cabinet minister Phil Gaglardi wants to put God back in the schools "where He belongs." He told a meeting of Burnaby teachers recently that many teachers are "scared to death" to talk about God in the Classroom. But schools should realize they're in the business of character building as well as educating, the Pentecostal minister said, and God is "the greatest character-builder.
