TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 1966 THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS Preacher's Wife Shows Up Wearing Mini-Skirt By EDDY OILMORE LONDON (AP) - When the shapely wife of the new minister showed up at the church youth club in a miniskirt, the boys .besieged her with requests for .dates. They did not get them, but Judith Rydings, 23, had some new sounding things to say about preacliers' wives. "I see no reason why vicars' wives should be dowdy," Mrs. Rydings said. "I think the .church must create a modern image. "I want the teen-agers' confidence, and I think I'm getting it. I should add that I'm very flattered." Her husband is the Rev. Donald Rydings of St. Mark's, an Anglican church in nearby Bourne End. Now serving as diurch missioner, he will be inducted as vicar next month. With her miniskirt, pretty Mrs. Rydings wore black fishnet stockings studded witli diamond designs and her dai'k hair cut in a short bob. Her skirts were lour inches above her knees. In Britain, vicars' wives usually wear tweedy suits and pass around cucumber and watercress sandwiches at village fetes and garden parties. Not Mrs. Rydings. She said hor liusband approves of her attitude. He commented: "The image of a conventional vicar's wife is more in the minds of the people than anything else — and particularly in the minds of people who do not go to church very often."

Meredith says Roy Wilkins, executive secretary of the NAACP has banned him from speaking at a "Mssissippi Day" rally in Columbus, Ohio, Friday. "It's intolerable," said Meredith, first Negro known to have attended the University of Mississippi, in an interview Monday night. "I just can't imagine it. I've spoken all over the country to every kind of group." Wilkins said only: "I have no comment on anything Mr. Meredith has to say." The new dispute between Wilkins and Meredith indicated that the united front they put up after Meredith was shot near Hernando, Miss., last June 6 while taking part in the "march against fear," had collapsed. Although details have not been made public, it is known that the two differ on tactics civil rights fighters should follow. Meredith charged that Wilkins, for the past SVi years, has harrassed him in efforts to speak. He claimed that Wilkins had, for example, set up telephone committees to "call people and tell them not to come" whenever Meredith had a speech scheduled. Meredith, now a student at Columbia Law School, got word of the cancellation just before he learned that his Mississippi assailant, Aubrey James Norvell, had pleaded guilty and been sentenced to five years in prison with three years suspended. He said the verdict showed the white Southern sheriff and prosecutor meant what they said when they promised him they . "meant business" and would push the prosecution. Young Stabber Not Linked To Valerie Percy PHILADELPHIA. (AP) - Detectives questioned a long-haired youth from, Illinois today about the slaying of Valerie Percy in Kenilworth but said they found no evidence to link him to that case. The youtji, John Mulig, 15, was arrested Monday on charges of stabbing a cab driver in a $2 holdup. Detectives questioned him about the stabbing death of Miss Percy 21, daughter of Sen. elect Charles Percy Sept. 18, because he formerly lived in Riverside, 111., 15 miles from Kenilworth. Lt. Raymond Kennedy said nothing turned up, however, to link hini to the Percy case. The detectives said, however, "since he's not going anywhere the investigation will continue." Detectives said Kenilworth police are not planning to come to Philadelphia to question Mulig. Mulig was charged with stat>- bing cabbie James Hagner, 46, early Monday. Hagner was taken to Chestnut Hill Hospital in critical condition with wounds in the neck. Mulig was arrested in Hagner's cab when the driver staggered out and told two policemen, "this guy stabbed me," and collapsed.

SS2-161S No Appointment Weoeesiy Smaller Role For Tac tors WASHINGTON (AP) — The Agriculture Department thinks the tractor will assume a smaller role in meeting farm power needs of the future. It says in a report that tractor power furnished about one- eighth of farm power needs in 1920 and 40 per cent in recent years. But, the report states, the proportion of tractor power to be used in the future is expected to level off while other sources of power will continue to increase. "Thus, tractor power will be a smaller proportion of total farm power in the future than it has been In the recent past," the department says. The other sources of power include electric motors and self- propelled harvesting machines, as well as a relatively few remaining horses and mules.

Pope Warns Jesuits To Watch Their Step By GERALD MILLER VATICAN CITY (AP) - A warning by Pope Paul VI to the Jesuits to watch their step has left Roman Catholicism's strongest order perplexed and trou^ bled. Leaders of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) are expressing private puzzlement at why the Pope singled out the Jesuits to rebuke for worldliness. And they are fearful of possible effects on the order. Last Wednesday, in a speech mingling censure with praise, the pontiff told the Jesuits he had heard "strange and sinister" reports about their order. He warned them not to abandon their historic principles and to remain obedient to the papacy. The censure overshadowed the praise. It was the strongest reproof from the Pope's lips in his three-year-reign and it shook the 36,000-member society down to its roots. Many leading Jesuits are afraid it may have disruptive effects on seminarians and young Jesuits. Some thought the Pope must have been addressing his rebuke to the most progressive and modem-minded elements of the order. But there is puzzlement because nothing happening inside the order is significantly more progressive than many of the changes backed by the Pope for the entire church. The Jesuits have acted to decentralize their Internal struc­ ture and give a larger voice to the rank and file in provincial and general congregations. But the Pope himself has done far more than this with his plan for a synod of bishop* to^ help him run the entire church In • more democratic manner. One of the outstanding modern Jesuit political thinkers, the Rev. John Courtney Murray ol Woodstock drew up the Vatican Ecumenical Council's declaration on religious' liberty. Though conservatives tried to kill it, the Pope himself gave it his approval.
