(CP) The Anglican Church of Canada was warned Saturday that it faces "fragmentation" if it. ever tries lo unite with the United Church on the basis of the present draft of union. The statement was included in a resolution passed by the Council for the Faith, a group the Anglican church held its annual Canada- wide meeting here. The meeting unanimously ap- proved a declaration on the fu- ture of the Anglican communion which said principles "essential lo the faith and order of the church" are threatened by cur- rent "developments." The council, formed six years ago, is opposed lo the present draft plan of union because it does not retain "essential ele- the doctrine of apostolic succession and the meaning of the ministry and a form suitable lo the Catholic and evangelical factions of the church.

(AP Wirephato) HULL, QUB. (CP) The Na- tional Anti-Poverty Organ- zatlon a newly- ormed group representing Can- ada's poor, ended a three-day meeting here Sunday issuing harsh criticism against govern- mental welfare policies In (lie Canadian North. Jn a slatement released after the meetings, NAPO called upon the federal government lo become responsible for the "de- ilorahle living conditions in the Northwest and Yukon Ten-l- ories." It said the organization holds 'the minister of Indian and northern affairs, Mr. Chretien, jersonally responsible for the joverty in the territories." The statement further de- manded that the minister "per- sonally attend" the next meet- ing of NAPO which is scheduled !or later next year. The group also demanded that the government raise present welfare payments in the North to a minimum of MO a month, plus food and fuel allow- ances, for every person in need of welfare. Welfare is tho re- sponsibility of the territorial government. Although the group plans to hold national meetings, NAPO president Mai'g Hartling said the group is "broke." She said NAPO had received a small federal grant to hold iLs first organizational meeting, but the cost of transportation and .iving expenses for the 24 dele- from each province and territory in exhausted present funds.

Probe campus clash BATON ROUGE, La, (AP) The state attorney-general's of- ke begins a full-scale inquiry .oday Into last Thursday's clash at Southern University in which .wo students were shot to death. Attorney General William Gusle assigned two assistants, one black, one white, to conduct :he Inquiry requested by Gov, Edwin Edwards. Guste said the investigation would be conducted in secret. U n i v e r sity administrators meanwhile, fired two faculty members they said had encour- aged student protests, and Ed- wards termed "totally in- accurate" a newspaper story that he had blamed a deputy sheriff for the deaths. The students, Denver Smith of New Roads, La., and Leon- ard Douglas Brown of Gilbert, La., both 20, were struck in the head and shoulders by buckshot as state police and sheriff's deputies scattered a crowd in front of the university's admin- istration building. The violence climaxed three weeks of student protests at the largest predominantly black college in the United States, and led to the closing of the school. BUENOS AIRES (AP) Juan D. Peron, in Argentina only four days after 17 years of exile, has seized the political in-1 itiative from the ruling military junta in dctcrming the course of j the elections scheduled for March 11. Bolstered by thousands of cheering, chanting supporters, the 77-year-old former dictator met Sunday night with leaders of the other major political par- ties. They accepted insults and catcalls from the crowd to at- tend a meeting called by Peron at the three-storey suburban home purchased for him by his supporters. Peron was to continue his meetings with political leaders today to strengthen his position in any future negotiations with he military government. There has been no major re- action so far from the govern- ment except for a warning that it would take any measures necessary to maintain order around Peron's house. About 1.000 militant Peronists camped overnight around bon- fires in a vacant lot across from the villa and on neighbor- hood lawns. More than had gathered there after Sun- day afternoon soccer games, but this was far less than the who packed the narrow, tree-lined street the night te- fore. Also at the meeting were other representatives of the Hour of the People, a loose or- ganization of political parties formed in 1970 to put pressure on the military government to call elections and hand power over to a civilian government. Peron has carefully avoided any public criticism of the rul- ing junta headed by President Alejandro Larnrae. It is believed that if Peron does not succeed in forming a sufficiently strong political al- liance, he might try to negotiate with Lanusse to choose a presi- dential candidate acceptable to both the Peronists and the armed forces.
