Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 28, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, Novombor 28, 1970 1HE IETHBRIDGE HERALB 9 Church differences not irreconcilable SLEEK'N addition to the weapons arsenal designed to fight air pollu- tion was tendered recently by the Canadian Vickers company which has been awarded a million contract to 144 electric train cars for the General Electric Transit Sys- tems department of Erie, Pennsylvania. The stainless steel cars are 85 feet long and 10 feet, six inches wide. Wheat board marketing backed by agro congress OTTAWA (OP) -r The agri- cultural industry believes the marketing of wheat should main the responsibility of the Canadian wheat board. This was the consensus of del- egates here at the second agri- cultural congress. The congress was called to discuss the federal report on the future of agricul- ture in the next decade. Three groups discussed wheat, feed grains and oilseeds. Two groups in their final re- port felt the board should use both futures and negotiated sales with flexible pricing to achieve the best financial re- turns and volume of sales in all markets. However, one group unani- mously rejected the federal pro- posal that tile board hedge all purchases of oats and barley on the futures market. There was general acceptance' of the pro- posal to use the futures market to hedge daily a certain quant- ity of coarse grains. Two groups rejected the con cept that all wheat produced in a given crop year-should be sol during that crop year with th exception of a normal car ryover. One group supported th statement by the Canadian Fed eration of Agriculture that th federal approach to agrieultur assistance should be determine initially by assessing the re q u i r e m e n t s of the industi rather than being guided in it allocation of funds. ACCEPT PRINCIPLE Two groups accepted the prin cipie of the grains stabilization plan announced recently by Otti Lang, minister in charge of wheat board. But one said that while such a program may be desirable an< acceptable it should not be con sidered by the federal govern ment as sufficient to meet all or even the major obligations 01 government to agriculture.

Sf S LEf HBRIDGE Prione 327-3609 form of delivery quota should remain and that provision should be made for protein grading of wheat. Provision for the new grading system is be- fore Parliament in a new grains act. The report's recommendation that the feed freight subsidy from the Prairies to British Col- umbia and Eastern Canada be eliminated drew mixed reaction from Prairie delegates but out- right rejection from B.C. and eastern representatives. One study group rejected the proposal to eliminate the introduced in 1941 to help pay transportation costs on feed grains. Its object was to encour- age livestock production in ureas of Canada with inade- quate feed grain supplies. One study group said the present plan should be contin- ued but Prairie spokesmen, in the third group were divided. Some concern was expressed that the wheat board role may not be significant within the ag- riculture department. There was support for a recommenda- tion that all agriculture be placed under one ministry to en- able an improvement in policy co-ordination.

The three churches involved are the Anglican Church of Can- ada, the United Church of Can- ada and the Christian Church (Disciples of The Anglican Church has a parish enrolment, including communicants, of about Some Anglicans describe themselves a s Protestants; some do not. This goes back to 1536 when the Church of Eng- land became a distinct part ot the Catholic (universal) church and loyally to life Roman see was made illegal. Anglican churches throughout the world are in communion with the See of Canterbury although that see has no primacy other than one of honor. It maintains traditional Catho- lic worship, centring in the Eu- charist, or Holy Communion, the sacramental and liturgical stress characteristic of the undi- vided church, the traditional Apostles' and Niccne creeds and a ministry of bishops, priests and deacons. Emphasis is upon the apos- tolic succession. H also is a reformed church, influenced by the Protestant tradition springing from the Reformation. The doctrinal position of An- glicanism as a whole, in rela- tion to the United Church1, has been described as "high" with a strong clement of evangelical or "low church" which minimizes ceremonial.

"A constant stream" of requests for information about alternative crops was received by the extension division, delegates to the pool's annual meeting were told. Interest was expressed in "everything from bird seed to field corn." The annual report didn't say how wheat farmers switched to crops that are for the birds. The United Church of Canad; lias a total enrolment of mem- bers and adherents of about In the 1961 census pei-sons professed to be members or adherents of thai church. It was formed in 1925 by the union of two-thirds of the Pres- byterians in Canada and the Methodist and1 Congregationalist churches. The entire member- ship of the churches that came together at that lime was The resulting church' was committed to the principle of union at an early date. When the first missionaries came into Canada they brought with them the divisions of then' home churches. But the vastness of the country, the slender re- sources of the scattered congre- gations and the need of pioneer settlements for the Gospel made competing churches too costly a luxury. Beginning in 1817 with the union of the Burghers and anti- Burghers of the Maritime prov- inces, there were nine unions of Presbyterian churches, culmi- nating in the general union of 1875. HAD EIGHT UNIONS There were eight unions of Methodists, culminating in for- mation of the Methodist Ciiurch of Canada in 1883, and two un- ions of Congregationalists by 1906. Conferences on union thai fol- owed disclaimed: "any spirit of exclusiveness toward others not named." In 1911 the Basis of Union was sent down to the lower courts of the negotiating churches and to the congregations. Anglicans and Baptists, invited to partici- pate, declined. Eventual union that resulted in 1925 has been termed by church historians an unqualified success. The Christian Church (Disci- ples of Christ) has a member- ship of about and 47 con- gregations in nine provinces but largely concentrated in the Mar- itimes and in Ontario. Leader- ship is provided by the All-Can- ada Committee with headquar- ters in Toronto. The movement began in 1WM in Cane Ridge, Ky., when six Presbyterian ministers formed the CJu-islian Church. In 1832 it joined with the Disciples o( Christ, organized in 1809. FORMED IN 1811 The Canadian brotherhood was formed in 1811 when a small group met near Charlotte- town to organize a "little church" whose principles and practices were to be based solely on the Testament.
