CyprusDaily RecordResolution Irks Missouri Synod Lutheran Leader
ST. LOUIS (AP) - The Lu-theran Church-Missouri Synod has become embroiled in another controversy, this time in-l volving the Lutheran Church of America.
The president of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, the Rev. Dr. Jacob Preus, Monday took exception to a resolution recently passed by an LCA convention in which the Missouri Synod was criticized for “official efforts to legislate adherence to additional documents! that serve to fence God’s Word and fracture God’s people.”
The LCA resolution referred to a long-standing doctrinal dispute within the LCMS that has threatened to split the 2.8-million member synod. Conser-jvatives maintain stories in the Bible must be interpreted as literal fact while moderates have held that the validity of such stories as “Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden” and “Jonah and the Whale” is in the lessons the stories tell.
Preus criticized the LCA resolution and said a committee is being formed to meet with LCA President Robert Marshall to discuss the problem.
“Had we known that such a resolution was being planned for your convention,” Preus told Marshall in a letter, “we would have been happy to supply you ( with full information, including speakers, to explain our position.”-Impeachment-

didn't know how they were going to vote and that it was possible they could vote for impeachment.
“There are at least four Republicans waiting to see what the legal theories (for impeach-• ment) are,” said Rep. Rails-t back (R-Ill.). He identified the - four as himself and Reps. CShen of Maine, Butler of Virginia and Fish of New York.
Cohen agreed with Rails-back’s estimate and said there | could be more than four Republicans voting for impeachment I after examining the proposed articles.
Wiggins’ prediction that impeachment would fail in the ju-dicary committee led Rep. Edwards (D-Calif.), to say, “I’m at a loss to understand how anyone could come to that conclusion and be a lawyer and a literate person.
“After being immersed in the evidence I would be very much concerned about the stability of the government if that took place. And I don’t know how any member of Congress could explain that result to the American public.”
Besides an obstruction of justice article, which would cover the White House role in Watergate from the June 17, 1972, breakin at Democratic headquarters up to the present, the staff is expected to propose articles based on:
I Alleged use of government agencies for political purposes, including use of the Internal Revenue Service to harass those designated as enemies of the administration.
Contempt of congress for failing to comply with eight committee subpoenas calling for 147 ■taped conversations.
Nixon’s personal finances, including underpayment of in-jcome taxes in the years 1968-72 and allegations that federal funds were turned to his personal use.
The use of wiretaps and the special investigating unit known as the “plumbers” for domestic surveillance.
A broad article charging Nixon with abuse of his presidential powers and with failure to meet the constitutional requirement that he “take care that the laws be faithfully executed.”
Scott Olson. 28, of 1641 Thirty-fourth street SE. filed nomination papers Monday for the two-year vacancy on the Cedar Rapids Community school board.
Olson, in announcing his candidacy for the board, said “being a member of the Cedar Rapids school board is the most effective means bv which need-
