_ THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, May 9, 1970. Religious Song Themes become More Prominent By GEORGE W. CORNELL Al' Religion IVrilcr NEW YORK (AT) Hey, man, it's a mixed uplhing now 'n' roll V religion. The rock lliumpings always have carried a hint of the gos- pel beat, but now it's coming on loud and strong, breaking out in the lyrics. It's usually not in traditionally pious terminology, and some of it may not make much theologi- cal sense, but it nevertheless registers a religious inclination. Variety, tlie show business publication, says pop music is "returning to one of its earliest roots, the gospel-spiritual influ- ence." Cm-rent albums and turntable shows for the young in the United States reverberate with Ihe "soul" sounds by various rock and folk groups and indi- vidual balladeers. Some of the titles include: Jesus is Just All flight, sung by the Byrds; I Guess the Lord Must Be in New York City, sung by Harry Nilsson; Superstar, a number about Jesus sung by Murray Head and a backup group; Resurrection, by a group called Aum and which starts Joint Venture Of RCs and Protestants isii Christi By JACK TRACY OSAKA (CP) Less then one per cent of-Japan's people .are Christians, and vis- ;ltors come to the Christian pa- vilion of Expo '70 in just about that proportion. Tucked away in an off-the- track corner of the fairgrounds, the little pavilion, which has the co-operation of the Vatican, is the first joint venture of Roman Catholic and Protestant chinches in Japan, a country where Buddhisn and 'Shintoism predominate. Lacking the shock effect of the angry Christian pavilion at Expo 07 in Montreal, which was a protest against Iranian misery and injustice, the mostly-under ground Christian exhibit draw few people compared with long queues at nearby displays o main-street Senri Bridge Ave nue. Theme of [lie pavilion "Eyes and Hands; the Discov ery of and it, above-ground structure suggest that. A pitched roof suggest hands clasped in prayer while windows between the hands sug gest the eye. At the entrance, pretty host esses 11 30 are Japansei o ut leaflet which invite the visitor to fee himself "liberated from the co] orful ambience of the exposi tion." Admits Medical Support Cut Off A_ iL TORONTO (CP) Dr. Rob- ert McCIure, moderator of the United Church of Canada, said here that when he practised medicine he had some cases where .he withdrew "medical support" for hopeless patients when death was imminent. "Withdrawing medical sup- port where death is imminent and'Inevitable is he said during a discussion on eu- thanasia on the CFRB radio program Let's Discuss It. "I've done it and I would want it done to me." But Dr. McClurt, a medical doctor and the first layman ever elected United Church .moderator, said doctors are not yet ready "collectively or indi- LETHBRIDGE BUDDHIST CHURCH 1303 13lh Slreel Norlh REVEREND S.

Dr1. McCIure said he was in favor of less promiscuity in the permissive society and did no like the idea of legalizing mari juana. But he said he liked the idea of it being bootlegged even less. Marijuana cigarettes could be spiked with heroin, he said, and if a youngster smoked such spiked cigarettes he could be- come "hooked for rife." Archaic Meaning The "good" in Good Friday has the archaic meaning of "holy." A similar use of "good" is found in the ancient expres- sion, "the good meaning Christmas.

Her brothers and sisters are non-Christians. "It's rare in Japan for all members of one family to be she said. The pavilion's upper hall has a Bible in Japanese and a copy of an ancient Greek Bible. There is also a communion table and a bamboo pipe organ. A handful of Japanese listened to an organ concert while sitting on straw mats. Zig-zag corridors, suggesting the catacombs of ancient Rome, lead underground to a display of Raphael tapestries loaned by the Vatican. Panel photographs leaning against a wall show the seamier side of Japanese life, underpri- vileged Negroes in the United States and groups of student demonstrators. Daily prayers for peace are held in the upper room.

In the country-Western cale gory, there are such recen numbers as Lawrence Key nolds' Jesus is a Soul, Man Linda Ronstadt's We Need a Lo More Jesus, and the Chaparra B r o t h e r s' Jesus Love You Rosemary. A trade magazine, Entertain ment World, predicts the rcli gious themes are likely to be come more prominent. Notin that rock 'n' roll has "a solir. foundation in gospel music" rudimentary origins, the maga zine adds: "Since this is a period whei rock musicians are exploring their musical roots, it is not sur prising that religon is findin; its way into their music." However, the magazine say the trend has encountered som resistance among radio and tel evision broadcasters, who occa sionally have shunned usin some of the discs for fear the; might offend conventional piety Some of the songs convey keen element of doubt and ques actually is classically authentic note in re- ligious searching.
