g THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Snlurday, September 4, 1971 Being ahead of the Crowd can prove costly stand By IllSV. DAVID I'OLI.VCi The conclusion that the Viet- nam war has been one enor- mous mistake is now wide- spread and the reading of the Pentagon Papers may place the final seal on such a judg- ment. The one spark of hope that emerges from such an apparent miscalculation by the presi- dents, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the Slate Department is that some people were right, that they opposed the folly, and I pursued their argument.'! all the way to the lop. One such per- son was George Ball, undersec- retary of Stale. Another, more recent, was Clark Clifford. He advised his friend and boss, Lyndon B. Jolmson, to de-es- calate the war, after- being ap- pointed secretary of Defense. There arc always those peo- ple in the world who are early to seize an opportunity, spot a flaw, measure a trend, or sug- gest new goals. They exist in government, are found in sci- ence and industry; their names are known in the university and the church. Often they are a success, for they have Uie cour- age to act on information and I willingness to take large risks for even larger gains. These are the leaders of men and they are very early in the Issue, not late. Right now the business com- munity is all excited about Ca- nadian oil. The energy people are pushing pipelines into the Arctic Circle. When you look at the lease maps, you find mil- lions of acres belonging to an unknown company called West Coast Production Ltd.

The texts in German, English and Spanish now are sent out they said. The paper is a collection of biblical, historical and doctrinal background to support Pope Paul's adamant stand against allowing Roman Catholic priests to marry. Those who oppose compulsory celibacy had called on the synod to provide a forum for a full- fledged debate at the top level of the Church's hierarchy. It was Pope Paul's intention, Vatican sources reported, to re- strict the question of celibacy to discussing a proposal to allow married men to enter priest- hood in areas suffering from acute shortage of priests. Henotheisni Ilenotheism was the ancient belief that there is one Su- preme Being, but that there may be oLher subsidiary gods. It allowed for belief in tribal or family deities, subject to Uie Supreme Being. cause K. S. Adams, 30 >eare ago believed that oil and na- tural gas would one day flow from the far North. This same oil man signed up the North Sea tracts bai'k in '511. Some people are early but often a liny few have the raw courage to act on their be- liefs. Sen. Mark 0. Ilalfiold was one of the earliest on Vietnam. Back in 1D63. then governor of Oregon, lie was the only poli- tical leader at Lite Governors' Conference to resist Uie Presi- dent who all bi'i demanded support for the war in Vietnam, They voted 49-1 to bad; LB.I. Not Hatfield. And now President Nixon will go to China. For almost a doz- en years or more the National Council of Churches has plead- ed with this country to find the way to establish normal diplo- matic relations with the largest country on earth. The conned and its leaders, like Eugene Carson Blake, the late Bromley Oxnam and others, did not get much applause and a moun- tain of abuse for their pur- suit of recognition of Red China. This topic more I ban any other brought a suspicious Lone to the affairs of the National Council critics called them Communist, seditious, un- American. Now, when the coun- cil is almost out of sight, the early cavse is popular, making front-page news around the world. Organizations, like people, can pay a stiff price for being ahead of the crowd. Dr. Spock and Chaplain Coffin of Yale are still ducking tomatoes for their antiwar stand. It will be up to the historians to wrile the commentaries on their public activity. But, the Pentagon pa- pers already vve a clue: The herd is too onen wrong and only a few are given in- sight and piercing view oi hat ought to happen in (he affairs of men.

Edmonton site for conference OTTAWA (CP) The semi- annual plenary meeting of the Canadian Catholic Conference of Bishops will be held in Ed- monton Sept. 20-2-1, it was an- nounced. The subjects of the meeting are restricted to the minisleria' mesthood, world justice and fundamental law of the Cath- olin church. The meeting is preparatory .0 .ho synod of bishops in starting Sept. 30. The statement, from the so- cial action offices of the confer- ence's bishops, says violence is seen "in the unequal distribu- tion of primary goods and social power, in the complacency of the affluent." "Violence is any force, physi- cal or psychological, which is exercised on a person or groups to gain what neither argument, moral suasion nor laws can ob- tain." The statement says the only way to break "the vicious circle o f injustice-violence-injustice" is to expose the source of unrest and eliminate injustice. The conference represents Roman Catholics, archbishops and bishops in Canada. CENTRAl CHURCH OF CHRIST 425 lllh St. 5. Mr. D. Maiscy, Organist J. R.
