Alaska Episcopalian clarifies diocese plan FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) The Bishop of the Episcopal Church of Alaska said this week he did not recommend that his diocese withdraw from the Episcopal Church of the United States and incor- porate into a Canadian church group, but rather that the two groups work closely together on an informal basis. Alaskan Episcopal Bishop David Cochran denied news reports that he presented a formal withdrawal plan at the 23rd Anglican provincial syn- od meeting in Sorrento, B.C. "What I was simply talking about at the conference was much closer co-operation with the Canadian Anglican diocese but I was in no way suggesting that the Alaskan diocese merge with the Canadian Anglican church." the bishop said from his diocese head- quarters in Fairbanks. Pincher parish celebrates PINCHER CREEK (Special) The 70th anniver- sary of the arrival of the Daughters of Jesus will be observed here Oct. 27 by St. Michael's Roman Catholic parishioners. The celebration will begin with a mass at a.m. in St Michael's Roman Catholic Church. A banquet will follow. Members of the order atr-v- ed here in 1904 and have serv- ed the community in many- ways since that time. A public reception and program will be held in St. Michael's School auditorium, commencing at 3 p.m. "The only thing I said at the conference was that we here in the Alaskan diocese have rr.uch more in common with the people of the Yukon Territory and British Colum- bia than we do with most other dioceses in the United he said. "But that is only in the sense of the same geography, the same kinds of people and the same kinds of problems." "However, ir, no sense did I recommend a withdrawal from the United States Episcopal Church nor did I recommend a merger with the Canadian Anglican Church." The bishop said the Cana- dian Anglican senate passed a resolution "opening the door for us to come in but they made no offer in terms of join- ing the organization." 'Prayer power' aids ill health Prayer-power provides a way out of "defaming habits, depressing attitudes, and ill health." claims Albert B. Crichlow, who spoke in Lethbridge this week. The first black to become a Christian Science lecturer, Mr. Crichlow is from Petit Valley. Trinidad. "Drawing near to the Christ. Truth, through prayer- power is God's loving means for the salvation of all mankind, the solution to all the obdurate woes that beset humanity." he claims. Mr. Crichlow spoke at Lethbridge Public Library, at the invitation of the Christian Science church in Lethbridge. He was introduced by Mrs. Violet Henderson. Local arrangements for the event were co-ordinated by Mrs. Gertrude Maddaugh. Mr. Crichiow was a flying officer with the Royal Air Force from 1943-46. For twen- ty years he was design engineer with an architectural firm in Trinidad, and later became a building contractor. He served as Christian Science committee on publication for Trinidad for thiree years. As a member of The Chris- tian Science board of lec- tureship, he now travels ex- tensively, sharing insights about effective prayer with public audiences. ALBERT CRICHLOW Lutheran directory reveals member drop Lutheran church membership in Canada has declined during the past year, according to statistics con- tained in the 1974 Directory of Lutheran Churches published recently in Winnipeg. A total of baptized member in 1974 showed a decline of or one-half of one per cent over the previous year. Meanwhile, active or Spiritual interest sombre in Canada Commentary by JEAN-GUY DEBUC Montreal La Presse A recent Gallup poll showed church benches rapidly emp- tying in Canada. The study, conducted among people of various religions, is signifi- cant enough to warrant a few comments. Instead of asking respondents if they "practised their the questioners asked: "Did you go to church within the last seven The form is less subjective and consequently can give more objective results. The results must be com- pared with those of earlier years to be revealing. In 1974, 39 per cent of Canadians said they had gone to church within the last week. The number in 1964 was 55 per cent, while in 1955 it was 58 per cent and in 1946 it was 67 per cent. In 28 years, then, the difference is 28 percentage points, of which 16 points are in the last decade. We can also compare the figures for Roman Catholics and Protestants. The latter's figure fell only five percen- tage points, but only 32 per cent of Protestants attended church regularly m 1965. Fifty-nine per cent of Catholics still are faithful, but the number was 83 per cent in 1965 It is a sombre picture for churches. Three Christians in five in Canada no longer feel the need to participate in the life of their religious com- munity. confirmed membership rose to up 841 over the previous year. Lutheran churches in Canada operate under three banners Evangelical Lutheran Church of Canada; Lutheran Church in America Canada section and Lutheran Church, Canada, a branch of the Missouri Synod. A confirmed membership of is reported in the direc- tory for Lethbridge, divided among three congregations. Churches and pastors in the city are Christ-Trinity, Rev. H. W. Martin; Good Shepherd, Rev. Waldemar Gartke, and at Immanuel, Rev. Paul Koester. The annual directory also records 859 clergymen and I.oo6 congreations scattered throughout Canada. There are no Lutheran congregations in Prince Edward Island. Membership statistics place Lutherans as fourth largest Christian denomination in Canada, following Roman Catholic. United and Anglican churches. DEDICATE GIDEON BIBLES as a continuing memorial Phone 327-5322 or 327-2735 PLACED IN HOTELS, SCHOOLS. HOSPITALS, PRISONS Tennessee court rebuffs creation (API- Tennessee's 1973 "Genesis Law." which rekindled memo- ries of the John Scopes monkey trial, has been ruled unconstitutional. The Tennessee legislature passed the law in 1973, speci- fying that all biology text- books in the state's public schools must give equal con- sideration to all theories of creation of man. Nashville Chancellor Ben Cantrell ruled recently that the law is an act ''respecting the establishment of religion" and thus runs counter to the constitutional doctrine of separation of state and church. The Nashville Chancellery Court rules on all civil challenges to state laws. The law decreed that the Adam-and-Eve theory of man's origin be spelled out in textbooks alongside the theory of evolution. Lawyers Gary Blackburn and Malcolm McCune filed the lawsuit on behalf of Harold Steele. president of a citizens group called Americans United for the Separation of Church and State. It was not immediately known whether the state will appeal the ruling. Scopes, a biology teacher, was convicted in 1925 in Day- Witnesses ton. Tenn., of teaching the the- ory of evolution of man, which at that time was against the law. The theory holds that man evolved from the ape. Scopes was fined in what became known as the "Monkey Trial" but the state Supreme Court overturned the penalty on a technicality, thus preventing an appeal to federal courts. Scopes never again taught school. It wasn't until 1967 that the Tennessee legislature repeal- ed the anti-evolution law.

Greece (AP) A military court has sentenc- ed five Jehovah's Witnesses to 20 years in jail each for refus- ing to take up arms during the Cyprus mobilization. It also stripped them of their civil rights for 10 years. The sentences brought to 30 the number of Jehovah's Wit- nesses sent to jail for the same reason since the trials began early this month. WORLDWIDE CHURCH OF GOD (Affiliated with Ambassador College) SATUFDAY, OCTOBER 5 1. )0 to p.m. LETHBRIDGE COLLEGIATE INSTITUTE LARGE LECTURE THEATRE 5th Ave. 18th St. South Minister: CECIL MARANVILLE, Ph. 345-4705 (Collect) Listen to GARNER TED ARMSTRONG ON CFCN RADIO and TELEVISION NO SERVICES ON OCTOBER 5 African legend parallels Genesis SALISBURY. Rhodesia The Bashankwe peo- ple have their own version of how the world came into being and it contains a number of startling parallels with Uie Biblical Genesis. According to the Bashankwe, an the beginning God created Hie earth arid the waters on the earth Then, when He saw how bare it was. He created the trees, flowers. plants and grass He rested for a while but still found 1he world empty, so He made birds, beasts, rep- tiles and fishes out of clay and breathrd life into them Finallv He decided to mafce creatures in His own image so He r reated a woman He then rreated a man, also out of clay and them life As all living things had been made in pairs they multiplied and God felt His work was done and He made nothing more This version oJ the creation, of course, leaves out the mak- ing of the sun. the moon and the stars. The Bashankwe people's legend accounts for this A legendary hare. Tsoro. rame across a ladder leading to the sky He climbed this ladder and found a group of vounp women who were in rharce oi heavenly bodies Tsoro look out his mbira a small stringed mslrument often rallfd the African piano and played so beautifully the women wanted to play it as well While thev did so. Tsoro left, taking the sun. moon and stars with him. As he returned down the ladder to earth he scattered them in the sky. But fhe Bashankwes" African Genesis goes further. They say God Hound that some men worked hard and plowed the fields whale others refused to work, saying they rrmid gel by on roots and berries So God turned the lazy ones into baboons, letting them keep their hands and feet but making 1hcm go on ail fours and wear tails He lold the lazy ones they mnsl hunt for their food and if thfv stole the crops, the iiad the right to stone and kill Jhc-m So, say the Bashankwe. the Tinnished while those who obeyed God and worked hard became masters of the world and grew rich in crops and cattle. Experts think parts of the legend may be derived from the teachings of the earliest Portuguese missionaries, its source forgotten by those who have handed the story from generation to generation.
