(Staff Photo by Leo Chabot) Looking Minister to Let Women Celebrate Communion in Violation of Order TOBERMORY, Scotland - tf) - Royal navy divers have found the wreck of a Spanish galleon they hope may contain the pay chests for the armada that tried to invade England in 1588. The duke of Argyll, who holds salvage rights to the vessel, says the ship was found buried in mud in Tobermury Bay off this port town on the isle of Mull, off Scotland's west coast. Dozens of attempts have been made in the past 400 years to locate the galleon, called the Duque of Florencia, Jewelry, silver plate, cannon and coins have been found in the area from time to time, but the exact locations of the wreck remained a mystery. LOCAL LEGEND has it that the vessel blew up and sant in Tobermory Bay, carrying to the bottom the pay chests that were to finance the invasion and occupation of England ordered by King Phillip II of Spain. "We have raised a section of the boat which was lying in 80 feet of water and 20 feet of mud," said Cmdr. John Cratton, leader of the diving team. "We are pretty certain that it is the Duque of Florencia. We are continuing to clear away the mud so that we can inpsect the wreck and, hopefully, get at the treasure." The find, only about 350 yards from Tobermory pier, was made after three weeks of exploration in conjunction with members of the British Underwater Archeological Society, using a converted motor torpedo boat. The Spanish Armada, believed by Spain to be invincible, appeared off Plymouth on England's southwest coat on July 20, 1588. It consisted of 130 vessels drawn from all parts of the Spanish empire and was manned by about 7,000 sailors and 17,000 soldiers. An English fleet led by Sir Francis Drake engaged the armada and routed it in a battle July 29-30. Drake was aided by a sudden rain squall that made the cumbersome galleons easy prey for his more maneuverable vessels. The Spanish ships that weren't sunk Bookmobile to Visit Clay County Tuesday CLAY - The West Virginia Library Commission -- Clay County bookmobile will stop at Clay High School on Tuesday from noon to 1 p.m. tried to escape by sailing northward through the North Sea and around the top of Scotland. The Duque of Florencia took refuge off the coast of Mull. Local legend says the ship's captain struck a truce with the local clan chiefs, the MacLeans, and that hostages were ex- cBanged. But when the galleon tried to sail without returning the hostages it blew up and sank off the island. The explosion was attributed to sabotage by the MacLeans. The wreck was signed over to the Duke of Argyll by royal charter in 1641. The late duke tried to find it in 1945 and two Royal Navy attempts in the 1950s also proved unsuccessful. The present duke gave the present team of divers permission to search for the wreck last year. He said he plans for form a company to supervise salvage operations. It would include members of the British Underwater Archeological Socie- tv. Thinking of -- CHILNBI'S SHOES ThMif and BUSTER BROWN torSMYear ZBCajMSt "STM OBERLIN, Ohio (AP)-The Rev. L. Peter Beebe says he will permit two women to celebrate Communion again today despite a direct order from his Episcopal bishop not to continue violating church law. A diocesan spokesman has said Bishop John Burl could punish further disobedience by stopping Mr. Beebe from exercising his priesthood at Christ's Church in Oberlin or suspending him from the priesthood. ' . An Episcopal Church court found Mr. Beebe guilty of violating Episcopal canons ! and his ordination vows by permitting the · ; women, the Rev. Alison Cheek of Annan- l dale, Va., and the Rev. Carter Heyward, ' now of Cambridge, Mass., to hold an ear- · lier service against the bishop's order. : The court recommended that the minister be suspended if he continued his violations, but it set a time limit. The court No Order To Load Grain Given NEW ORLEANS UP) - A federal judge refused on Saturday to order longshoremen to load grain on a Soviet-bound ship. He said no order was needed yet because a strike had not been called. "Until a strike actually occurs, I see no reason to issue a restraining order," U.S. Dist. Judge Alvin Rubin told shippers. "Come see me when you have heard." The New Orleans Steamship Assn. had asked for a restraining order based on what they called threats of a strike by local officials of the International Long- shoremens Assn. Wilfred Dailet Sr., president of ILA Local 1419, has said he will instruct his members not-to load grain in accordance with union policy as other Gulf Coast ports. A federal judge in Texas ordered the longshoremen to load the grain after they had gone on strike. "My position is the same as the president of the local," said Ernest Jones of Local 1419. "We will refuse to load it." The Anna M was scheduled to begin taking grain on Saturday at a floating grain elevator at Reserve, some 40 miles up the Mississippi River from New Orleans. Loading was delayed until at least today because another ship is blocking the elevator, trying to bring its cargo up to quality . standards. Venezuela to Gain Oil Control in'76 CARACAS. Venezuela (AP)-Venezuela will take control of its huge oil industry seven years ahead of the originally scheduled 1983 deadline. President Carlos Andres Perez signed Friday a bill nationalizing his country's 61-year-old. 2.5 million-barrel-per-day oil industry. Formal takeover of the industry is scheduled to take place on Jan. 1,1976. The 28-article law grants the private, mostly foreign, oil companies a four- month transition period ending Dec. 31 to hand their concessions and property over to the state. The concessions, covering 5.4 million acres, originally were granted for 40 years by the government of dictator Juan Vicente Gomez and were scheduled to begin expiring in 1983. Some 21 oil companies, including Exxon. Shell. Gulf. Mobil, Sun and Texaco, will be affected by the nationalization law. It provides for compensation not exceeding the net book value of the companies' assets, officially estimated at $1.1 billion. Majorette Event Set WINFIELD - Putnam County's third annual majorette festival has been scheduled for Jgpt. 30 at Winfield High Scho^. said its recommendation for punishment should end with the final day of the church's 1976 general convention if by then the church hadn't altered its laws so as to accept women to the priesthood. The guilty verdict is under appeal. Bishop Burt told Mr. Beebe last month that he would act if the minister permitted the women to join the staff of Christ's church in Oberlin where Mr. Beebe is pastor, or if the priest permitted the women to hold Communion services again. Mr. Beebe had invited the women to his church seven times between the initial service last December and his trial, and he did so again within 48 hours of the verdict. The women have been working as members of the minister's staff the past week. Mr. Beebe and the church's vestry issued the i n v i t a t i o n s , and a vote of the 225-member church body on whether to confirm them has been scheduled for Sept: 9. Rev. Heyward previously was a resident of Rochester, N.Y. -Radio /hack SEE YOUR DIAMOND REMOUNTED See it happening before your eyes while you wait SPECIAL ONE DAY ONLY MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 1 OPEN 10:00'til 5:00 \ LABOR DAY LABOR DAY SAVE $100 SENSATIONAL REALISTIC® AM STEREO RECEIVER BARGAIN Reg. 299.95 199 95 The STA-82 with automatic FM tuning system reduced 33%!
