Non-Member's Gift |&«*«™« Helps Black Church ''ill J'' REV. ALVIN LARKIN and Marshall Maupin in the sanctuary of the newly-decorated Bethel AME Church, 1001 East 3rd. The carpeting, among other things, was Maupin's gift to the church. The interior decoration of the Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church, 1001 East 3rd, was recently completed at the courtesy of Marshall Maupin, 13 Rambler. As a gift to the church, of which he is not a member, Maupin purchased and had installed hundreds of yards of carpeting to cover the sanctuary, classrooms, and fellowship hall. He also donated red velvet cushioning for the church pews, pulpit furniture, and altar. Maupin began giving his gift to the Bethel congregation in the summer of 1970 when he equipped the church with central air conditioning. The gift was given to the church of some 200 members in memory of Maupin's wife, Peggy. "It's just a good feeling know-j ing how many people will enjoy this for several years — this is something lasting," says Maupin, president of Fire Out. Inc., 604 32nd Terrace. Maupin became acquainted with the pastor of Bethel, Rev. Alvin Larkin, through his own pastor Rev. Jim Brock, First Presbyterian Church and Rev. Terry Woodbury, former student minister here.

Black Catholics Seek More Voice • T His delected face slumps under a shabby hat. We don't know who he is. But we know what he is. He is a MAN. One of us/ To his loved ones he may be a disappointment. To l-.i.-nso!.' he may be a failure. To society he may be useless. But to God he is a SOUL — like each of us! And therefore his whole life can change ... when one day he'll discover the power and strength and hope with which every soul is endowed. Quietly, behind the closed doors of a pastor's study, the Church is daily helping men to come to grips with their problems. Sunday by Sunday its pulpits are imparting faith and courage for those secret inner struggles. The century-old Christian concept of the dignity of man has never rested simply on who and what we are. It is founded on the vision of what — with God's help — we can become.

But one member of the group takes strong exception. Joseph Davis, a Marianist lay brother and executive director of the National Office of Black Catholics, and five other American black Roman Catholics are here primarily to insist upon the appointment of a black archbishop for Washington, D.C., to replace Patrick Cardinal O'Boyle. Cardinal O'Boyle, 75, is known to have tendered his resignation, but Pope Paul VI has not yet accepted it. The group also wants to talk to Vatican officials about setting up a black rite in the United States to meet the needs of the 800,000 black Catholics there. Others in the group include: Rev. Lawrence E. Lucas of New York, president of the National Black Catholic Clergy Caucus and one of 10 candidates proposed by a black Catholic convention in Detroit last August to succeed Cardinal O'Boyle; Sister Martin Deporres Grey of Pittsburgh, president of the National Black Sisters' Conference; and Joseph Dulin of Detroit, president of the National Black Lay Caucus.
