It is near the railroad station in this town of 632 in the heart of a farming area 45 miles northeast of Albertas capital Edmonton The train struck the bus in the middle and carried wreck age down the

early Tuesday They had just completed a ninehour ride which brought to a close the 12th annual KGLO North Iowa Fair special trip to the International Live Stock Ex position in Chicago THE TRIP home was much different from the trip to Chica go last Thursday This time an immediate quit fell over the train asit pulled out of Chica gos LaSalle Street station about 10 pm The reason for this was quite was tuckered out carry away the injured and dead AT FIRST Harry Sharuk chairman of the Lamont School Board expressed belief there were only 32 aboard the bus He aid about half of those were killed Hospital authorities re ported later known deaths there were 15 They expressed in the Middle East Orthodox churches The confrontation between the Pope and Archbishop will be the first so far as the records show since Archbishop Arundel ban ished from England by King Richard II in 1397 saw Pope Boniface IX Despite its historical signifi cance few in either church would regard as imminent a reunion of the two churches A real stumbling block is the Roman insistence that any re union would have to take place inside the Catholic Church The Guardian points out The visit must cause mis givings to many church mem bers in Britain They will find it hard to see any evidence of friendship on the Roman side Unless the Roman Church is ready to be less rigid than in the past nothing can be achieved FOR HIS OWN part Pope John repeatedly has said it is better to stress what unites rather than what divides And the Archbishop after the Sep tember meeting of the World Council wrote in his Diocesan Notes The pace is quickening We must enter into the unity of spirit with Baptists Congrega tionalists Methodists Presby terians and even Roman Cath olics As for Rome Dr Fisher wrote Where there was ig norance and suspicion there is now increasing sympathetic in terest and in some quarters a manifest desire if I may so put it to enter into the spirit of this movement to see what God teach us all through it Horseplay and loud noise which had marked the trip into the Windy City were lacking There was of course still talk and laughter but it was of a dif ferent variety The card games started soon after the train pulled out but this time they broke up earlier and the play didnt seem as spirited THERE STILL was plenty of wandering between cars but this time it wasnt out of curiosity This time it was to exchange addresses and phone numbers with newly acquired friends in different counties The general opinion of the youngsters and their leaders was hat the trip was wonderful but t was oh so good to be going home Not surprising the weather back home was the greatest conversation piece Rumors were started even before the train left Chicago that North Iowa was
