PAGE EIGHT THE NEWS-PALLAOIUM, BENTON HARBOR, MICH. NESDAY, JULY 5, 1S7Z Lutherans Updating Status Of Women By CEO I! OB \V. CORNELL Al Hrligion Writer DALLAS A P V -- The Lulhcran Church in America has ordered steps "toward s e c u r i n g p r o p o r t i o n a t e representation of women in decision-making bodies and staff in all parts of (he church." Its president, the Rev. Dr. Hobcrt J. Marshall, was directed to set up a predominantly female committee to work with church agencies to attain "equal status of women" in them. The action came Tuesday at t h e 3 . 2 - t n i ] | j o n - m e m b e r d e n o m i n a t i o n ' s biennial governing convention on a motion by a Philadelphia woman, Louise Shoemaker. Some delegates sought to change the objective of "proportionate" representation to "adequate," arguing that since Democrats Veto Another Machine MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) -The people who attend the Democratic N a t i o n a l Convention next week will be ad- m i t t e d by people, not machines. The Democrats hope that humans can do what e l e c t r o n i c g a t e k e e p e r s couldn't. In Chicago four years ago it was go or no-go -- according to the capricious whims of a machine that flashed green or red and maybe not at all. A plastic card heiti by the user aided the machine in its decision. Sometimes it got fooled by an or- dinary oil company credit card, but most often by its transistor innards. The result was people who got in when they shouldn't; people who didn't when they should; and a lot of people who flashed redder than the machines. This time, the Democrats have gone back to the old-fashioned admission ticket, numbered and color-coded, with secret and invisible markings to t h w a r t would-be counterfeiters. most clergy are men and clergy fill about half the offices, giving women a proportionate number would crowd out lay men. A woman delegate responded that this situation way be overcome in the future when most clergy may be women. This evoked general laughter and the Hev. Dr. Krister Stendahl, dean of Harvard University, interjected: · "The possibility of a majority of clergy being women is not funny. The matter is in God's hands." The denomination ordained its first woman minister only last year, and now has two of them out of 7,328 clergy--the Rev. Judith Hird, a Toms River, N.J., pastor, and the Rev. Elizabeth Platz, campus pastor at the University of Maryland. In making the move to upgrade the place of women at points of church power, Mrs, Shoemaker noted that among convention nominees for elec- . live church offices, 164 were men and only 18 women. The weeklong convention, which runs through Thursday, also approved resolutions calling for intensified efforts to end racism in America and for development of church strategies to fight drug abuse.

JOSEPH · FAIRPLAIN PLAZA WASHINGTON ( A P ) -.Consumers warned by supermarket officials to expect higher meat prices are finding the warning all too true. An Associated Press survey of about two dozen cities shows that grocery bills -- particularly for the better cuts of beef and for pork -- have increased anywhere from a dime a pound on up in the two weeks since the latest warning was issued. Cabinet officials scheduled a meeting in Washington today with officials of food chains and called in farmers for a Thursday session to help in preparing a food prices report that Presi- dent Nixon has requested by. July 10. Shoppers, meanwhile, were issuing their own reports. "The food prices are just terrible now," said a woman in a Seattle, Wash., super-market, "1 know how much the prices- have gone up because I just staVted shopping regularly a year and a half ago when I was ·married." "Prices are out of sight," said a man in a Kansas City store. "The very first thing the government should have done in ifs economic program was to put controls on food prices."
