(AP) -Six Lake Oswego, Ore., youths rolled a beer keg up to the doors of the Olympia Brewing Co. here and claimed a new world's record for barrel rolling.

QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Certified Dental Mechanic Capitol Furniture Bldg. IPHONE 328-7684M Synod of Bishops, a Vatican official announced today. Archbishop Ladislau Rubin, head of the synod secretariat, told a news conference the 210 delegates could discuss optional celibacy-the possibility of letting priests marry and continue their ministry. The official topics of the synod, a grouping of bishops and other clergymen from around the world, are the priesthood and social justice in the world. Several delegates have indi. cated they want to talk about controversial proposals that the 15-century-old celibacy rule be eased. Pope Paul VI, in encyclicals and dozens of speeches, has re jected all pleas that priests be able to marry and continue in the priesthood. He has hinted that he might allow the ordination to the priesthood of "mature" married men in areas where there is a serious shortage of priests. Synod working papers already sent to the bishops strongly uphold the Pope's views. The synod will be opened Sept. 30. Archbishop Rubin said the meeting should last through October.
