A few weeks ago wrote that this country would soon be put to the test to see if the United States as a national community could gain ststuro "in defeat" and regroup follow- ing an emotional disnsler. The pride of presidents is indeed something to behold. One render, a newspaper pub- lisher in Ohio, responded to these thoughts by offering an alternate ooinion. They are not mine, but they deserve a large hearing and they represent a vast group in this country. He writes: "Please remember that through our history we've been sending dogmatic missionaries to places throughout the world "It's the fulfilling of the obli gallon that's stirring up the do- gooders. Embarrassment and pain, yes. Dirty polifics in South Vietnam, yes. A lousy situation yes. But human beings they are." In pondering this communica LONDON f-tP) Church ofjlion< should go back to the England clergymen and laity first point: Many citizens in our failed to approve proposals for land equate American missions ending a 25-year wrangle over and American military in Unity proposals not approved Anglicans where they weren't wanted nor sited [or.

But in the main, I sec very little dent in Hie problems ot the world being solved by our unselfish and de- voted service to people over seas. "My point is this: We WERE asked on the scene in Vietnam We did respond as we agreed to do, year.s ago. When we trea tied with the Asians we made a moral commitment. I find it hard to see it as moral that vc would back out. of the situation and. leave those people with NO chance for freedom. Main ly, just because we seem at the moment to be losing. were the loud voices of protest when we made the agreement in Ihe first place'." Concluding his remarks. Ted Evans of the Ashland Times Gazette (Ashland, Ohio) ob- unity with the Methodists. The church's general synod gave the plan a 65.81 per cent majority short of the 75 per cent needed. Just before the vote Dr. Mi- chael Ramsey, Archbishop of Canterbury, urcerl the synod to support the unity plan. the voting figures showed that 85 per cent of Uie bishops were in favor, 65.52 per cent of Uie clergy and 62.82 per cent of the laity. The motion also failed lo get the necessary two-thirds majority of the clergy. CENTRA! I CHURCH OF CHRIST li llth St. S. j; J. R. CHAPMAN, Minister Mr. D.

Wr.e'.hcr it's Africa or Asia, the trend is toward na- tional leadership and direction.

More than million of the million objective has been raised in the United Kingdom, and this week an international f u n d-raising campaign was launched here under the pa- tronage of Gov.-Gen. Roland Michener. Royal Trust announced that it had undertaken to collect at its offices from coast to coast Canadian contributions to a fi- nancial campaign on behalf of historic St. Paul's Cathedral, London, England. While the Canadian appeal is mainly by mail, and centrwl in Halifax, Montreal, Toronto, Winnipeg, Calgary and Vancou- ver, Royal Trust has offered i Its branch network throughout the country to accept over-the- counter donations, Icr iv h i c h official receipts will be issued. a "brain-storming session" to establish rapport and select areas of study. Mr. Threinen, executive sec- retary of the theological studies division of the Lutheran Coun- cil of Canada, said another meeting has been set lor No- vember, probably in orTonto. He said such meetings prob- ably will be held twice a year. The possibility of union among the churches is not a goal of these meetings, Mr. Threinen said. An exchange of information and an understand- ing of each other's tradi- tions and problems is being dis- cussed. He said Uie churches have areas of mutual concern such as the spiritual malaise affect- ing people confronted with the pressures of a secular society, Lethbridge Christian Reformed Church Invites to listen to the Back In Curl Hour every Sun- day night at 7.30 p.m. over CIIEC radio.
