PAQBKIOST BtYTHEVILLB (ARK.) COURIER NEWS SATURDAY NOVEMBER 3T, 19M Notionoi Council Cooperative Church. Move Officials Cite Groups Weaknesses Last <rf Two Articles By GEORGE W. CORNELL BOSTON (AP) — The cooperative church movement today needs to do some important fence mending. That's the view of leaders of the National Council of Churches, which opens its biennial assembly here tomorrow. "Much has been done," declares a preliminary report. "Much remains to be done." Although the Interdenominational agency has become a vast, many-sided opera tion, officials said it has weak spots that should be braced up to make it more effective. The needs cited include: 1. Means to give the masses of denominationally secluded church members more personal contact and experience with interchurch activities so they can know firsthand the values of cooperative Christian labors. 2. Setting up of comprehensive information - gathering machinery on a national scale to show where the churches are doing their Job ki society and where they're fail- in£ — so tactics can be planned accordingly. J. Increased participation by Mymen—along with the clergy—in ohwch cooperative work. PRESIDING — Bishop William C. Martin, president of the Notional Council of Churches, will preside at the Council's Third General Assembly at Boston, Mass.* Nov. 28 to Dec. 3. Some 2000 church leaders will review work carried out by the Council, and help map plans tor future projects. 4. Further bolstering of the council's financial resources to provide a margin for more flexible operations and a reserve to protect against temporary income .slumps. 5. Bringing currently nonpnrticl- pating denominations which .share faith in a divine Christ into the movement. Although not named, the principal nonmembers are the Southern Baptists. Roman Catholics and Lutherim Church-Missouri Synod. B. Clearer channels of communication between local, state and national councils of churches and more deeentralt/.ed council meetings in all geographical areas to keep direction flowing from the bottom up. "State and local coastltuencies want guidance on the basis of policies and plans acceptable to all units of the council," the biennial executive report says. "They do not, want patterns dictated by national .staff people." The call for giving more rank- and-file Christians personal experience in Interdenominational affairs came from Dr. Roswell Barnes, the council's associate general secretary. Difficult Outlook "One of the major tasks," he said, "is Lo bring more of our members Into ox tensive ecumenical experience and . . . into deeper understanding of the ecumenical perspective." He said clergymen rratl laymen who have taken a direct part in interchurch activities have a "quite different" outlook from the bulk of churchgoers who are acquainted only with their own church. This difference in perspective, ho .said, is "rieep-acnted nnd quite difficult to deal with." Those who have had fnce-to-faci! rclnlloiifiliips with other churches see their own church In "the universal perspective" of Chrislinn- ity, he .said, while many others SCD their own church as a realm of values limited to it-self. He .suit! this clni-sn't menu that the e (! u m e n icnlly experienced Christ inn Is "less loyal" to his oU'n church—but (hat he i.s some- \vliuL like the overseas traveler who "gfilus iipprorliiHon for the culture nnd problems of others without thinking less of his own nntioiinl heritage." U.S. (Continued from Page U agreement." The United States charged that sentencing of U.S. military personnel was "grossly conU'ury" to all international standards respecting protection of prisoners of war It said the "maltreatment" of the two civilians was "equally reprehensible."

Fog, Smog Hold Tight Grip in California LOS ANGELES HV- For the fourth successive day, Southern California was in the grip today of traffic-paralyzing, eye-smarting smog and fog that" the weather man says will continue over the weekend. Indicative of the blinding effect of the fog, which rolled 10 miles inland from the Pacific, was a traffic report of 1,470 crashes since [lie dense, ground-hugging mist started last Wednesday. However, only two deaths were attributed directly to traffic. Fog closed Los Angeles international and Long Beach Airports again last night. Lockheed Airport at inland Burbanfc. usually free of fog, was closed for an hour and then reopened. Football games scheduled for last, night Were postponed. At Long Beach, a rugby game between teams representing New Zealand and Australia was halted because (he spectators couldn't see what was going on. Visibility in Los Angeles Harbor \vfis three quarters of a mile. The log slowed but did not stop the movement of ships. Fog horns in the harbor at Santa Monica had wailed stnndily 48 hours. Even Santa Glaus was grounded by fop in Santa Monica. Retail merchants there had arranged for him to arrive by helicopter. The children were on hnnd, despite the gloom and the mist, but old Santa JUKI roukin't fly through the fog. The merchants changed signals and Santa finally showed up late. riding in a slow-moving bus. The kids weren't impressed. S. T R E A S U R Y DEPARTMENT.
