CLOUDY CLOUDY Today's Mews Briefs i Adveinritisfts reject ordination of women The Associated Press Nation World commissions had carefully studied the issue and decided the church was not ready to ordain women. He rejected some delegates' suggestions that each geographical division within the church should set its own ordination policy. The Seventh-day Adventist Church is separated into 11 geographical divisions encompassing 190 countries and 6.2 million members. During Tuesday's two-hour debate, many of those supporting the ordination of women referred to Ellen G. White, an early church leader thought by some Seventh-day Adventists to be a prophet Delegates opposing the ordination of women relied on the Bible, which provides the guiding principles for the 127-year-old church.

INDIANAPOLIS The ruling body of the Seventh-day Adventist Church voted Wednesday against allowing the ordination of women. Delegates to the church's 55th world conference voted along geographical lines, to accept a commission's report that ordaining women would be disruptive to the world church and Murder Nicaraguan negotiators agree to end strike The Associated Press MANAGUA, Nicaragua Negotiators for the government and striking unions agreed early today-to end a strike that tore up city streets, brought commerce to a halt and left at least six people dead. The accord was signed by negotiators for should not be allowed. The greatest support came from delegations from Europe and North America. Leaders from Africa, Asia and South America overwhelmingly opposed letting women preach the gospel.

Before the vote, retiring church President Neal C. Wilson of Bur-tonsville, assured the delegates that three different From 1A of being "too proud, too haughty, and too stubborn for her own good. Marilynn never knew when to stop pushing to get her own way for everything. She never realized how she was getting all of the good things, and all the bad things were happening to Dennis." The letter says that Marilynn "chose to throw Dennis over the fence, and stay on her side of the fence with the children, house, furniture make Dennis pay college expenses. Dennis got.

very, very hurt when Marilynn threw Dennis over the fence." When she kept him out of the house and kept their children away from him, "she exacerbated Dennis' depression, left him in a hopeless situation with drastically unfair treatment." The letter attempts to justify a violent act in two lists. One question-and-answer list asks, "When do people, as a last resort, react with violence?" The first two answers involve being treated unfairly, the third, when there's little or nothing to lose; and the last, when a person is hurt physically or emotionally. "All these happened to Dennis," the writer said. The other list gives six "interesting thoughts," including "Do unto others as they have done unto you," and "an eye for an eye. a life for a life." President Vio-leta Barrios de Chamorro and the Sandinis-ta-led National Workers' Front, ending the biggest challenge so far to Cha- If before.

The couple's three children had been living with Mrs. DePue. The letter details in rambling, repetitive fashion reputed problems between Dennis and Mari-lynn DePue, their attorneys, relatives, friends and court officials. The writer blames the "tragedy" involving the pair primarily on Marilynn DePue's attorney for issuing a restraining order against him. He also blames Dennis DePue's attorney for not telling him that he could stay in his own house during divorce proceedings.

The letter calls the "divorce legal system" in Branch County "a failure and (it) needs to be changed." The writer accuses Mrs. DePue of trying to hurt her husband. "-Marilynn had every right to a divorce, but she made a fatal mistake in lying deceiving to force Dennis out of the house, estranging the children from Dennis," the letter said. The writer refers twice to the movie The War of the Roses, saying that if Marilynn had seen it, "everything would have been solved early and amicably." Dennis DePue was "unfairly thrown out of his house with depression overtaking Dennis," the letter said. The writer blames Marilynn for starting the divorce with lying "and wanting everything her own way." Further passages accuse her determined size for August.

Under the pact, public sector workers fired since Chamorro took office April 25 will be paid and there will be no retribution against the strikers.

Opposition was also strong in the country of 3.7 million people to government plans to sell many of the properties the Sandinistas confiscated and nationalized after coming to power in a 1 979 popular revolution. The strike closed the international airport, cut electricity and water service, limited telephone and mail delivery, reduced gasoline supplies and shut down factories and businesses.

The strike took hold July 2 and spread through most government ministries and many state businesses.
