Wyttievllli (Ark.) Courier News — Saturday,'Auiust 27, 1WJ - P»» Fivt Challenge of Rich Ministers By EARL LAWRIMORE Charlotte Observer Writer CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Being a minister to the poor has its problems, but a less-publicized challenge to today's churches are the new wealth. An Episcopal minister . in Charlotte knows 'personally of young couples "struggling to reach' the top." "But when they get there, they find they've only run into a new, often tremendously complex set of problems," he said. "Trying to keep up with these people can be a real rat race," a Presbyterian minister said. "It's utterly impossible to decide one morning to have a meeting and that night expect even half the people to be there. Meetings must be planned .weeks in advance." A Methodist minister has! begun "calls Charlotte. "Sure I enjoy the game," he otherwise." ; iyhat are some of the challenges of a prosperous, successful congregation? In first place are money and its temptations. "Not only do the wealthy find that money provides many benefits," one minister said, "but it also makes them liable to many special temptations and to tremendous pressure from their fellow citizens to share the money, their abilities and free time." Pastors also find that weekends bring "the great exodus from town — to lakes, the mountains of North Carolina or the beaches — anything to get away for a while to relax." One minister believes leaving * . * * town, "may be the only way such people can keep their sani- ,Ct>UUUlDti lUiluawi. U«iJ \ " ——- - I I r making some of his ty. If it's impossible for them to at the golf courses in get away, they might try to escape through drinking." Alcohol is another problem confessed. "But on the greens I can make contacts and establish relationships I couldn't make i pastors of wealthy congregations must face! "The wealthy are of course hot the only ones who drink too much, but they don't have to worry about neglecting their families financially — they can just about drink all they want," a minister said. The wealthy couple can get caught up in the drive to succeed and leave their children on the sidelines, causing other problems. There are advantages to having a wealthy and well-educated congregation. Pastors have little trouble finding Sunday School teachers, choir members, group leaders and deacons. "These people are as gracious and generous as any I've ever known," a minister said. "They are full of enthusiasm and help in as many tasks as they possibly have time for." One minister who has. traveled abroad extensively added that "nowhere else in the world is there the same sense of responsibility for the proper use of money as you find in America. Charlotte's well-to-do are no exception." STILL PUBLICITY-SHY, screen great Greta Garbo glances furtively at a lurking cameraman before scuttling into the Athens Museum during a visit to Greece. The elusive actress, now 60, has been rarely photographed in recent years.

DEAR ABBY: Let me start out by saying that I love animals. I have had pet dogs, cats, birds, skunks, and even two king snakes. I recently read in the newspaper where someone left nearly $200,000 to a pair of cats! And it was stipulated that in twenty year or after the cats died, the remaining money should go to a hospital and church. Now if that isn't the most ridiculous thing you have ever heard of, what is! I can see leaving enough money to feed and care for pets, but for a hospital and a church to have to wait 20 years for a donation because a couple of animals have inherited it, is downright disgusting. There ought to be a law against leaving money to animals. Will you see w h a t you can do about it, Abby? DISGUSTED DEAR DISGUSTED: I think any law attempting to limit the individual's right to dispose of what is lawfully his would be unconstitutional. If not, it should be. So we'll just have to suffer such extravagant sentimentality and be glad it doesn't happen every day. DEAR ABBY: For eight years now I have had this neighborhood gang of boys (ages from 10 to 15) who show up daily to play with my son. During the summer :hey go home only to sleep and eat. One day I counted 19 boys spread over our property You wouldn't believe the noise! My problem is they never congregate anywhere but here. Of course I'd rather have them here than on the streets, but I would like to know how to get some of the other mothers to take in this mob occasionally. SAN MATEO MOM DEAR MOM: Every mother should have your problems. There must be something about your yard, your son, or your "hospitality" that draws these boys. If yon don't say anything to spoil it, I won't. DEAR ABBY: Tell the 11- year-old who couldn't stand the noise her father made when he ate carrots, celery and other crunchy food that I •would be glad to trade places with her. My father can eat only foods which have been liquified which he takes thru a tube. He has can'cer of the stomach .but we are thankful for every good day he has. So next time that girl complains about the noise her father makes "crunching," will you please remind her o£ me?
