SON- shine is presently on a four-week tour of the Midwest. By DAVID E. ANDERSON DPI Religion Writer When Jimmy Carter gets around to studying the options and alternatives for welfare reform, he might want to take a look at the way things are done in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Not that the Mormon way can be replicated by the government or, indeed, by any other church or denomination. But there may be some things to be learned from it. Last year the Mormons provided "several millions of dollars" in assistance to the poor, the needy and the sick. More importantly, perhaps, is the fact that the mormon Graves -- and the Mormon aide chairty," said Mormon public at that level that the first peeled not only to do the Those who receive assistance relations official Charles responsibility for the welfare of monthly fast but also to donate are also expected to contribute time - an estimated 400,000 to the program to the extent days in 1976 - to working at necessary - even if it may be of dairy "There must be abudnant charity, but no alms giving," the church says.

And that's exactly what he's doing with his latest one-hour television special, "Searching." In a hilarious segment of "out takes," Roberts reviews some of his' funniest bloopers, all edited from, previous shows. The edits involve several of his former guests -- Jerry Lewis; Natalie Cole, and H. R. Pufn- stuff. . . but the personality roasted is the famous evangelist himself. "Searching" has a serious face, too. Richard Roberts, in dialogue with his famous dad, shares the uncertainty he felt while growing up, of the direction he wanted for his life, the rebellion he felt at being in the shadow of one of the world's greatest religious leaders, and the difficult search for his own identity. ' In an hour of looking back, of sharing both happy and sorrowful moments, the special reaches beyond the memories of the Roberts family to engage the emotions of the viewing audience and invite them to reflect on their own special moments and examine relationships with those they love. The program, taped on the campus of Oral Roberts University at Tulsa, Okla., offers a visual feast of the space-age architecture for which the campus is so famous. An opening medley with Richard Roberts and the World Action Singers takes them from the stage of the magnificenl Mabee Center, to the beautiful prayer tower, through the lush gardens and sparkling foun tains of the University's grounds. A brand-new television production center currently under construction is the springboard that launches Oral Evelyn and Richard Robert! into the hilarious "out takes' segment.
