TUESDAY, MAT 27, 1S52 W/TTHEVILLK (ARK.) COUNTER NEWS Social Security Asked For US. Ministers ... By GEORGE CORNELL ... NEW YORK I*—The Presbyter- Ian Church in Ihe U. S. A., one of the nation's big Protestant denominations, has called on Congress to extend social security benefits to ministers who want it. The action, taken yesterday by the 14th annual General Assembly of the church, came in the midst of widespread debate within many churches on the issue. Donald. L. Hibbard ot Philadelphia, vice president of the Presbyterians' pension board, said he knew of no other mnjor denomination which had yet taken such a stand. The assembly, representing 2',i million church members, approved the move by voice vote. There was some volume of "no's." Opposing the move, Robert Gordon of Milford, Mich., said: "Anything connected with the government is political, and don't kid yourself. I want our ministers to stand alone, with allegiance to no one—but God." The Rev. Harold E. Nicely, Rochester, N. Y., maintained that Uie question of social security insurance, on a voluntary basis, presented no Issue concerning compromise of religious freedom." "I am as jealous as any one else of the freedom and Ihe integrity of the church," he declared. The Presbytery of Rochester, in proposing Ihe appeal, said church pension, benefits were "sadely inadequate." It said it "rejects Hie intimation' ll'.M social security coverage would "compromise the principle of separation of church and state. The assembly also moved to re- stove a church requirement that its ministers do not remarry a divorced person until a year has elapsed from the divorce. A committee lias named to draw up a proposal for restoring the requirement, in some form, but an oflicinl pointed out any new provisions could not become churcl- law until after local presbyteries act on it in the ensuing year. South African Union Boss Jailed Again for Anti-Government Tal JOHAKNESBURG, South Africa OR—E. S. Sachs, South African Garment Workers' Union boss, was back in jail today for trying to make the anti-government speech that got him jugged Saturday. This time he was ordered to stay there 1 days and police turned down appeals that the labor leader be freed on bail. Sachs was haled before a court for trying to harangue several thousand persons yesterday from the steps of the Johannesburg City Hall. He tried to speak from these to stay there 16 days and police errested him on charges he had violated South Africa's anti-Red laws. Hundreds were injured in a • resulting clash with police. Sachs' arrest brought threats of a nation-wide general strike from the powerful Federation of Trades and Labor Council. reeling has mounted since Sachs defied a government order charging him with being a Red and ordering: him to quit all political • nd union activities. The order was issued under the broad powers given Prime Minister Daniel Malan two years ago in outlawing the Communist party. Sachs says he was expelled from the Communist party In 1931. The trades and . labor council cabled appeals lo affiliated laboi groups abroad for full support ir fighting what it claims is a ROV eminent attack on organized labor. The American Federation of Lauoi tAFL) and the Congress of In dnstrial Organizations (CIO) were among the organizations receiv ing the appeals.

Esies Kefauver of Tennessee.* More than 500.0CO voters in this state's second primary were expected to make their choices from a scrambled list of 84 candidates on which 26 were pledged to Kefauver and " 41 were pledged to Russell.
