(UPI Unifax.) Charges Against Churches Doubted By LOUIS CASSELS United Press International The cry of "Communists in the churches," raised by extreme right-wing groups, is beginning to have a seriously demoralizing effect on religious life in America. So says a bluntly worded report issued by the National Council of. (he Episcopal Church. Similar warnings have been sounded recently in a statement by the General Council of the United Presbyterian Church and in a pamphlet published by the National Catholic Welfare Conference. All three documents say- that many patriotic, God-fearing Americans — who are not themselves extremists—have become ' frightened and confused by the widely circulated charge that Communists have heavily infiltrated the ranks of.the clergy. This charge has been labeled a "patent falsehood" by the FBI. But even the great prestige of the FBI has not been sufficient to lay the charge to rest. Hearing it increasingly evident" in many areas. It urges patriotic Americans not repealed over and over again, loyal church members find themselves wondering if there may not be something to If, after all. The Episcopal report says that doubt and suspicion are deadly disrupters of any Church. It's not necessary that the members be convinced that their pastor actu- ally is a "comsymp." If they are merely led to suspect that he might be, his ministry will be crippled and the fellowship of love which should prevail in a Christian congregation will quickly give way to an atmosphere of tension and hate. Precisely this is happening now in some parts of the country, ac. cording to the Presbyterian General Council. The Catholic pamphlet, written by Fr. John F. Cronin, S.S., as- si'stant director of the NCWC's Social Action Department, says that "hysteria and suspicion are to be "misled by false prophets." And it assures Catholics that Communist influence in Protestant churches—which have been the principal targets of rightist attacks—is "virtually non-existent." The Episcopal report holds out little hope, however, that the charges of communism in the churches will collapse under the weight of their own "preposter ousness." "The charges will continue to be made," it says, "just so long as it is profitable for disciples ol dissension who find their support among church members." To this Episcopalian suggestion, Fr. Cronin adds a Catholic amen. "I am convinced," he says, "that three-fourths of these extremist groups are making a financial racket of the fight against communism. They're in it tor the money."

Ac- ording to his statistics, 1,015 nortgage exemptions were filed or 1962. as opposed to 963 in the ear 1961. Veterans' exemption filings show n increase of 16 over last year vith 202 filed as against 186 .in 961. Persons over the age of 65 ears who filed exemptions in the uditor's office numbered 295 in 962. and 302 in 1961, a- decrease if seven. Underwood interprets, the decease in the old age exemptions s being a result of more exact- rig legislation recently passed in regard to these exemptions. The increase in the veterans' exemptions, Underwood feels, is due to the aid of the County Service Officer,. in appraising the veterans of their rights. The Veterans Service office was. established a few months ago in Pulaski county as part of the county .organization by the commissioners. The increase in mortgage 'exemptions was -due mostly by younger persons who are purchasing a home in'the county, according to Underwood. AWARD CONTJIACT ' .
