A pastor from Los Angeles, Gwin W. Turner, says he plans to introduce a motion in the opening business session to recall and rewrite the 12-volume Broadman Bible Commentary "from a conservative viewpoint." The motion would be the third attempt at convention sessions to alter the commentary which is published by Broadman Press, publishing arm of the SBC Sunday School Board. By a vote of 5,394 to 2,170, the 1970 Denver convention requested the Sunday School Board to withdraw Volume I and rewrite it "with due consideration of the conservative viewpoint." At the Southern Baptist Convention last year in St. Louis, a motion advising the board that the 1970 request of the convention to rewrite the commentary volume "has not been followed" and asking the board to obtain another writer to revise the volume, was passed by a vote of 2,672 to 2,298. An Alabama pastor on the Sunday School Board, Dr. John Jeffers of Auburn, says more is at stake in the proposed motion than the fate of the commentary, Writing in "The Alabama nrjdfOTMid'wilt Former Auburn is at stake is the entire publishing ministry of the Bap- j i tist Sunday School Board and aide 10 SpeaK ultimately every other board and agency of this (Southern - -a r Baptist) convention." ai lVICLiOV I - DAVID HOUSEL .COPIES Coast-To-Coast 0$ each 'mm. order 25c) ovt fabutotn 1 14 XldOX COM trv you Sawyer Office Supplies, Inc. 21 East 11th St. 237-6705 "What this amounts Jeffers added, "is transferring the responsibility of an elected board of trustees to a majority of approximately 15,000 Southern Baptists who happen to be present and voting at a given session. . .This would result in nothing less than chaos in our publishing ministry." Two other Alabamians on the Sunday School Board, James Neyland, minister of education ,at Dauphin Way Baptist Church, Mobile and Charles Ed Howell, minister of education, Central Park Baptist Church, Birmingham, have endorsed Jeffers' statement. A new president is to be elected to succeed Dr. Carl Bates of Charlotte, N. C, who has served the maximum two years.

(AP) - He has the look of a Wall street banker, assured and urbane, with a trim mustache. He has made his reputation in money, big money. But it's not for himself. It's for church schools, hospitals and other benevolent institutions around the world. "The church needs to get out of its Volkswagon mentality about money," says John Park Lee. "It should quit thinking small, and think big." That's what he has been doing for the last nine years. and in that period, ne nas raised $64 million of extra capital for the United Presbyterian Church, strongly topping a goal of ?50 million. How did he do it? "You go after the big gifts first," he says. "That stimu lates all the rest: ft.

"You go into the office of a big steel corporation executive and interest him in backing some important church educational center that needs a lot of money to keep going. It's the kind of thinking that appeals to him." In contrast, when merely giving through their local congregations, the wealthy are inclined to keep donations down to the general level, so as to avoid dominating the budget and to leave responsibility for its dispersed.
