Deaths at Legion Convention Haunt Churchmen By GEORGE W. CORNELL AP Religion Writer PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The wave of deaths and illnesses that followed an American Legion convention here two weeks ago is stirring a vaguely haunting undercurrent among Roman Catholics attending a world spiritual gathering now in progress. Little uneasiness is evident, and the events of the 41st International Eucharistic Congress continue on schedule, but congress officials are in touch with public health authorities. "We're concerned, of course, but health authorities have advised us that the ailment apparently came from contact with a carrier at the previous convention, rather than being indigenous to the city," said the Rev. Leo McKenzie, archdiocesan communications officer. About 10,000 people attended the state Legion convention that ended July 24. Twenty have since died, and more than 140 have been hospitalized with symptoms of the unknown, flulike disease. Although attendance totals for the eucharistic congress are yet to be compiled, in all a million persons are expected to attend various congress activities this week. There have been no reports of illness similar to the unidentified disease. The only inkling that the deaths of the previous convention might be dampening the fervor or turnout for the congress was that some hotels reported they had vacant rooms that had been expected to be filled. But this likely stemmed from Pope Paul VTs calling off his anticipated attendance, and more pilgrims still were arriving. The Rev. James Gardiner of the Franciscan Friars of the Atonement at Graymoor, N.Y., said the situation was "really spooky," but people had not let it dampen their spirits. "It's such a great experience and we're so busy, we don't have time to worry," said Sister Clare Francis of Boston, voicing an unshaken outlook reflected in comments from numerous nuns, clergy and laity. - Some people suggested that the spiritually inspiring qualities of the gathering warded off temporal anxieties about mortality. "I haven't heard of anyone being scared off," said Sargent Shriver, one of this year's unsucessful Democratic presidential contenders and one-time head of the Peace Corps. "We've been going to communion so much here that we'd be spiritually readied before death anyhow," said Shriver, who is attending the congress with his wife, Eunice. The congress is a global Catholic assembly, held every four years, that focuses on the Eucharist, or Holy Communion, and belief in the Divine presence in it. The current gathering, the first in the United States in 50 years, centers on "Hungers of the Human Family." At the. congress Tuesday, church leaders called for greater Christian efforts in behalf of freedom and justice in the world. Thousands joined Tuesday night at Veterans Stadium in a worship service for that goal. Mission to Nigeria Relates Experiences The Rev. Gerald L. Falley, an Assemblies of God missionary to Nigeria, will be guest speaker Sunday, August 8, 7:00 p.m., at the First Assembly of God, 702 Campus Drive.

Each Sunday Everyone Welcome! Rev. Gerald Falley Looking 'Bad' For West Europe NEW YORK (AP) — It is still too early to state conclusively that Western Europe has lost its latest battle with inflation, and probably too despairing also, but the numbers look very bad. Consumer prices rose at about a 12 per cent annual rate in the first quarter of the year, or about double the rate in the United States. Moreover, the trend was to more inflation. In the latter half of 1975, for example, the inflation rate averaged out to about 9.5 per cent, a sharp decline from a 16 per cent rate in the first half of the year. But now it is rising again. Disturbed about the current 6 per cent consumer price in- flation, Americans would be shocked by the rates in some European nations. Italy and Spain have rates of more than 20 per cent, and Britain, Holland and France have rates in the area of 14 to 15 per cent. Only Germany, Switzerland and Belgium, among the major economices, have been able to maintain inflation in the single digits or, in the case of Switzerland, less than that. The Swiss actually have had deflation. In a commentary on the situation, Merrill Lynch Economics Inc. observes that some European governments "seem unable or unwilling to move seriously enough against inflation." Guest Speaker at Presbyterian Church The United Presbyterian Congregation, Seventh and Pine Streets, will host a guest preacher- this Sunday at the 10:00 a.m. worship service. Eugene Stoeckly, son of Mr. and Mrs. W. F. Stoeckly of 1201 Pat's Drive, will be the preacher. Stoeckly is a graduate of Princeton Theological Seminary and is a Ministerial Assistant at • the Broadway Presbyterian Church in New York City. His sermon is entitled "The Most Wonderful Feeling in the World" based upon Ephesians 2:1-10. The worship leader for the morning will be Elder Carol Hodgkinson. The organ music will be by Mrs. Claude Robinson, and a piano-organ duet will be provided by Lois and Beth DePew, entitled "Nature's Anthem of Praise" by Sullivan. Pastor Bill Seybert, pastor of the local church, will give DBS. SPECKMAN, BEALMEAR and BOWLING announce the association of DR. J.C. MAXWELL, JR. in the Practice of Optometry 701 E.

Students Seeking Off-Campus Housing From forty to fifty men intending to enroll this fall at Garden City Community College are seeking housing facilities from residents in this community, according to Homer Salter, housing director. An earlier appeal from the college for living facilities in private homes brought in a number of apartments and sleeping rooms for women. Residents responding indicated they preferred to rent to women. However, many of the families who have rented to college students for five years or more have reported good experiences renting to men. The Raymond Huffmasters have rented to men for the past eight years. So has the Aldon Smith family. Both families report to have "enjoyed having college men in our home." Most men and women students seek apartments or light housekeeping facilities, according to Salter. But, sleeping facilities for men will help' solve the housing problems since students can eat their meals at the campus student center. When homeowners list off- campus housing with the college, the lists are made available to all students seeking housing. The college does not enter into negotiations for renting rooms or apartments to students. Most rooms rent from $40 to $60 per month for each student. Furnished apartments rent from $80 to $100 per month for each student. "Last year many students rented trailer homes from local residents and for the most part the plan worked well for both students and renters," says Salter. ' Anyone having a room or an apartment to rent to college men may contact Salter at the college to list thier hpusing. the children's message entitled "Joy." A church school class for nursery and kindergarten age children, and a nursery for infants and toddlers, are available for the children of worshipers .during the 10 o'clock hour. Special Service For New Members Special service will be conducted Sunday, Aug. 8, at St. James Lutheran Church. New members will be received at the 10 a.m. service. David Heinemann will sing. Roberta Schmale will play the organ. Pastor Gjellstad's sermon for the morning is entitled "The Reach of God's Concern." After the service, the congregation will gather for a reception honoring the new members. Coffee and punch will be served. ERDA Plan Will Create 'Disaster 7 By ANN GHERLEIN Telegram's Washington Bureau WASHINGTON Testifying before a Senate subcommittee last week, Dr. Barry Commoner, Director of the Center for the Biology of Natural Systems at Washington University and a leading energy authority, called the long-range energy plan of the Energy Research and Development Administration (ERDA) a "blueprint for economic disaster." The testimony was delivered to the Energy Research and Water Resources subcommittee at one of a series of oversight hearings on ERDA's 1975 Energy Research Development and Demonstration plan, which was updated this April. According to Commoner, "for the first time in the history of modern agricultural and industrial development we are in the midst of a rapid and continuing increase in the price of energy — a phenomenon which will have catastrophic economic effects if it is allowed to continue." He said that ERDA, in failing to assess the long-range economic impact of its plans, has developed an energy program which will cause the price of energy to continue rising for at least the next 75 years. In order for the price of energy to stabilize, he said, the energy source must be inexhaustible and the technology must be proven to the extent that its cost has become relatively stable. ERDA's long-range program, said Commoner is based on three "inexhaustible" technologies — fusion (the source for which is water), the breeder reactor (so-called because of its ability to produce new nuclear fuel as it generates power), and solar energy. But, according to Commoner, neither fusion technology nor -the breeder reactor could be economical before 2040 or 2050. He says the fusion process is not yet known to work at all, and so "one can reasonably conclude that this technology will reach maturity well after that date — if ever." HEINOLD COMMODITIES, INC.
