Major Roy Calvert, corps officer at the Calgary Glen- more Temple, will address anniversary worship services Sunday at 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. Women have played a sig- nificant role in the growth of the Lethbridge corps, Major Joan Pierce discovered this week when digging out some congregational history. "Capt. Annie Hurst was the first commanding officer ap- pointed to Lethbridge in Major Pierce noted. Today, a female duet com- posed of Major Pierce and Major Thelma Corney lead the Lethbridge soldiers, Capt. and Mrs. R. W. But- cher are also part of the Southern Alberta team, con- centrating their efforts on emergency, corrections, sui- cide and thrift shop activi- ties. The Army conducted its first meeting in a small building on 5th Street, near the old Hudson Bay Build- ing. Today this structure houses the thrift store and of- fices from which welfare and correctional programs are conducted. Capt. Hurst attracted large crowds to her bright gospel meetings. Souls were convert- ed and soldiers enrolled. The Army had to soon move to a larger building near the now- demolished Roxy Theatre. According to Mrs. Marcy Frayne, the oldest soldier currently on the Lethbridge Citadel roll after 63 years of service, Stan Slarks was the first soldier to sign the Ar- ticles of War here. In 1912, a citadel was erect- ed at 426 5th Street S. Dur- ing the year of construction, Ensign Maggie Andrews con- ducted week night services in the open air. The existing meeting place was only avail- able for Sunday worship. WHEELBARROW Capt. Robert Taylor wheel- ed the first convert to a meet- ing at ithc new structure.

Humbard ready to pay off debts CLEVELAND (CP-AP? The financially troubled Cath- edral of Tomorrow agreed Thursday to a plan for repaying any of its note holders who want their money back, poten- tially millions of dollars. The Cathedral and its leader, Rev. Rex E. Humbard, were charged last February in state and federal suits with fraudu- lent sale of securities. The federal suit said the or- ganization had been operating at a loss for 18 months and lacked the money to meet about million in debts. Both suits are pending. Thursday's hearing was told about million has been placed in an escrow account in the last month. Most of the money came from contribu- tions, including funds set in re- sponse to Mr. Humbard's plea last month for gifts from supporters. ORDERS HEARING Judge Paul E. Riley ordered hearing to determine whether ,he cathedral was in contempt of court in making the plea and in inviting supporters to an ex- pense-free weekend conference in Akron, Ohio. No date was set for the hearing. The plea and invitation came in separate mailings totalling letters. The repayment plan calls for setting up a trust fund using the million and making more de- posits later. Payments would begin in November. Mr. Humbard reaches an esti- mated 15 million viewers weekly through programs tele- vised by about 350 stations in Canada and the United States. The judge was told the church is selling an Akron building val- ued at million on which losses the last three months have totalled UNIVERSAL RELIGION The Christian Science religion was formally established in Boston in 1879. It now has more than branches in 48 countries. In accordance with the rule of the church, it does not publish membership statis- tics, but is known to have sev- eral hundred thousand adher- ents. Assembly to nominate moderator TORONTO (CP) Rev. Ag- new H. Johnston, 66, minister of St. Andrew's Church in Thunder Bay, Ont., will be the official nominee for moderator when the general assembly of the Presbyterian Church in Canada opens here Sunday. Dr. Johnston was chosen over four other candidates in ballots cast by all ministers and elders in the 44 prebyteries across Canada. However, any minister who is a the assembly may nominated for moderator. Some 260 commissioners, on the basis of one minister and one elder for every six congre- gations, will attend. Of the 130 elders, 19 will be women. Further restructuring of the national administration of the Presbyterian Church will con- ;inue, and the committee on or- ganization and planing will propose a new agency to be called the board of ministry. STUDY RELATIONS Relationships with the Roman Catholic Church have been un- der study by the committee on church doctrine. It will recom- mend that the general assembly "commend any arrangement for the common use of buildings by Presbyterians and Roman Catholics where it would meet an urgent need, or where such action would serve as a unique expresion of common witness to the community." Discussion of the future use of fermented wine at the sacra- ment held at the opening of general assembly will come up through an overture from the presbytery of Cape Breton. The presbytery has asked the as- sembly to "set an example in strict moral standard" by us- ing unfermented grape juice.
