Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 26, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE LETKBRIDQE HERALD Saturday, October 26, Temperance drive bubbles in South By NOEL BUCHANAN Herald Religion Writer Temperance pledges are bubbling to the surface once again amongst former haunts of the great Southern Alberta whisky trade. Former Lacombe resident, Ivy Fretwell landed in Coaldale this summer bring- ing a typewriter and necessary stationary to con- tinue her role as national WCTU recording secretary. Mrs. Fretwell was re elected to the post during a WCTU centennial convention in Ottawa last month. Last week, Hanna district members gathered to hear summer reports about WCTU work among Indians on the Big Horn and Gleichen Reserve. Hanna supporters were reminded during their meeting prayer is No. 1 key to helping fellow human beings drowning sorrows in alcohol. World president Mrs. H. Cecil Heath addressed the Ot- tawa gathering. Other foreign visitors included WCTU representatives from Australia, South Africa and the United States. Cheryl Fosted of Camrose was recipient of the Christian youth of the year award dur- ing the convention. Secretary Mrs. Fretwell ex- plained WCTU sponsors speech competitions, scien- tific temperance instruction in schools and churches, poster and essay contests. "We are carrying on effec- tiv4 work among Indian peo- ple at Big Horn and she claims. "The WCTU superintendent has taken a course in the Stoney language and teaches Bible lessons to Indians by tape recorder." Petitions opposing liquor advertising on radio and television were circulated during the past year in Calgary, Medicine Hat and Hanna, Mrs. Fretwell said. Clothing has been donated to the Hope Mission in Ed- monton and a brief has been submitted to the Clutter Li- quor legislation committee. Mrs. Lavona Broen of Camrose, youth secretary, is another national WCTU of- ficer based in Alberta. Current Alberta membership stands close to 250 members.

The subpoena orders Kim- ball to produce all "writings in your possession or the possession of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints respecting every policy and practice of said church regarding persons of the black race and to permit inspection and copying thereof." Report adopted VATICAN CITY (AP) Roman Catholic bishops from all over the world adopted a "declaration" Friday calling on lay Catholics to join with churchmen in spreading the Gospel and fostering social development. The vote wound up the policy making sessions of the month long synod of 206 bishops representing the church hierarchy. The bishops overwhelming- ly approved a draft of the document Thursday. In the final version its title was changed from "message" to "declaration." Vatican spokesmen said the document's text and the breakdown of the vote would be made public this weekend. The synod concludes today with a speech by Pope Paul. Missionary convention The 1974 Alliance mis- sionary convention begins tomorrow in the Lethbridge Alliance Church, 1202 3rd Avenue S. Rev.

Bill Kelly, religious co ordinator for southern Alberta separate schools, said here recently. Speaking to a meeting spon- sored by the New Dayton Catholic Women's League, Father Kelly said, "We will only encounter Canst by hav- ing faith. "Through love and prayer we can tune Christ into our lives. About 65 people from the Roman Catholic, United, Anglican and evangelical faiths heard the priest speak. They came here from Magrath, Raymond and Amish best-seller 6touches nerve9 PHILADELPHIA (AP) A book written by a Philadelphia divinity student has been a best seller in Pennsylvania's Amish country, but for the wrong reasons; jsays the author. Dan Neidermyer, 27, says members of the Amish faith in Ontario and Pennsylvania raised about to buy all available copies of his novel, Jonathan, then burned the books and persuaded his publisher to print no more. "What aggravates me is that I was never even con- sulted about si lid Neider- myer in an intervie w recently. "No one even came to me to say they objected to the book." Jonathan centres on the conflicts of a 19 -'year old Amish youth with church leaders and his1 eventual ousting from the religion.' Neidermyer said his publisher, -Herald Press of Scottdale, Pa., told him arrangements were made with Amish in Ontario and in eastern Pennsylvania to destroy remaining and cease further publication. He said there were no objec- tions until Pathway Publishers of Aybner, Ont, printed a critique saying the book "maligns the Amish by Moon peddlers face deportation its tone, its emphasis, its theme." "I was informed by a group of church elders that the book was 'too Neider- myer said. "It really touched a nerve." The author, a resident of Ephrata, Pa., is currently working towards a doctor of divinity degree at the Episcopal Seminary in West Philadelphia. Education leaders appointed PICTURE BUTTE (Special) Mr. and Mrs. Lloyd Robson nave been ap- pointed Christian education councillors to the Picture Butte United Church Sunday school, it was announced at a recent congregational meeting here in the home of Mr. and Mrs. William Rae.

WASHINGTON (AP) Rev. Sun Myung Moon and his disciples are swooping across the United States with a brand of Christianity embracing politics and peddling. To their dismay, they've swooped straight into the hands of the U.S. immigration and naturalization service, which thinks Moon's Unifica- tion Church may be teaching its young foreign trainees more about peddling than preaching. The immigration service has threatened to deport 61 of the foreign trainees who to leave the U.S. after their visitor's visas expired. About 500 more face similar treatment "I am again and again em- barrassed in front of them that our country in effect is saying, 'We don't want said Neil Salonen, president of the church's U.S. branch. The converts, most of them youthful, are dispatched to peddle peanuts, flowers, candies and other small items door-to-door or from small sidewalk stands. Trainees peddle 'only as pa'rt of a much larger program of evangelism, lee- taring, Bible and other religious study, prayer, workshops and many otlwsr ac- Salonen said. Bat the immigration service sees it differently. "We had received com- plaints, some from local authorities who hi turn had received complaints, especial- ly on the door-to-door said spokesman Verne Jervis. "They are pret- ty aggressive. They don't take a turn-down easily." The trouble began when the church asked the immigration service to allow 582 aliens to remain in the U.S. for at least 26 months as trainees free of the six-month limit on visitor's visas. The agency denied ths pro- ductive employment, both in violation of non-immigrant visitor status and beyond the pale of trainee classification.'"

Conducting the service was the Fort Macteod Ministerial Association. Father John Maes led the service with Rev Gordon Haynes in charge of prayers and Rev. Ron Hunt leading the singing.
