Dr. Owen Cooper of Yazoo City, Miss., the convention president, said that the issue of women serving in the clergy is likely to be one of the most controversial subjects to come up at the gathering. Although some churches in the 12-million-member organization permit women ministers, the convention's Christ i a n L i f e C o m m i s s i o n proposes that women make up one-fifth of the elected mem- Water Grant Given WASHINGTON ( A P ) - A $3.3 million grant has been made by the U.S. Department of Agriculture to West Virginia for a water and waste disposal program to be administered by the Farmers Home Administration.

Ethiopian Strike, Violence Continues ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia (AP) -- Truck drivers continued their strike across Ethiopia Saturday following violent clashes with police in which one man was reported killed and several others injured. Hundreds, of trucks were left parked along the five main arteries leading into Addis Ababa. Police dispersed several groups of strikers when the drivers and students tried to smash the windows of other trucks trying to reach the capital to u n l o a d perishable goods. The strike began Thursday in the eastern town of Nazareth, with truckers seeking better working conditions, lower diesel fuel prices and standardization of tariffs. bers of boards, agencies and committees by 1980. COOPER PREDICTED it may be another decade before the convention is prepared to accept "with great feeling" quotas for women. The president noted that "The majority membership jn Baptist churches are women, but the minority runs the outfit." The Christian Life Commission urges in recommendations to the convention that agencies seek in assignment and employment "to communicate the conviction that racism is theologically untenable, politically destructive and fatally dehumanizing." The.commission calls for Baptists to work for racial justice in education, health care, housing, consumer concern and participation in politics. The commission also would have the convention support tax reforms to close loopholes for the rich and remove heavy taxes from the poor and "near poor." It wants development of a family support plan to "abolish the evils of the welfare system." Another expected proposal is to change the convention's name to something other than "southern," since it operates worldwide. Although the convention officially opens Tuesday, satellite conferences were to get under way today. Vice President Gerald Ford will address a 7 a. m. breakfast Friday. Evangelist Billy graham will attend -- he belongs to the 18,000-member First Baptist Church of Dallas. Delegates will n u m b e r 15,000 representing 12,297,346 Baptists in 34,665 churches. It is the largest non-Catholic Christian denominaton in the world. Front runners for the presidency are believed to be two Texans, although there is no . open campaigning. They are the Rev. Landrum Leavell of Wichita Falls' First Church and the Rev. Ken Chafin of. Houston's South Main.Church.
