UNITED PENTECOSTAL CHURCH APOSTOLIC Sunday school convenes at 10 Funeral Cost-Shock Could Kill By Sidney Margolius New York (WNS) -- A reader in her 70s has a dilemma which confronts many other elderly people without nearby relatives. She feels she needs to plan her own burial. Many authorities also recommend such preplanning even if relatives or friends are available. She lives mostly on Social Security and has a $1,200 insurance policy and a paid-up burial plot. She did what's supposed to be the sensible thing and went to a funeral director and explained that she would want a small, short funeral. The director said that he was required to itemize the costs. This is supposed to be one of the reforms instituted in recent years to prevent concealment of inflated charges or unwanted services in an overall price. "He itemized all right," our reader relates. "For every little thing than can happen, that may happen, that they think should happen. The total was almost $1,700. "He asked me to sign. I did not. I get older but not more stupid." Certainly this is a high price for the simple burial requested, especially since she has a paid- up plot. The $1,700 quote woudl take all of the insurance money plus the usual $255 Social Security death benefit for a covered worker, plus little more. Anyone interested in preplanning, or one in immediate need of help when a relative or friend dies, can ask for prices from more than one funeral home. Charges do vary. One family seeking cremation services recently was quoted .$1,000 by one funeral home; $500 by another, and $265 by a third. All three used the same crematory with the only difference the number of related services provided, the charges for them and the fee for the actual disposal. Revealingly, the home charging $1,000 and the one charging $500 both are owned by the same national funeral service chain. They simply operate on different marketing levels. Nor do you have to go it alone. People can get help from various community sources arranging burial services. One of the most available sources for advice is a minister. If you belong to a labor union or a fraternal society, most of these have welfare departments that can advise you, and some even have their own burial societies. Senior citizens clubs also can offer advice. A person alone and others in need of guidance also can get advice from a nearby Community burial society or from memorial associations. As described by Raymond Arvio in his book "The Cost of Dying and Whay You Can Do About It," these are member- owned and controlled societies that advocate advance planning and help arrange for reasonably priced funerals with local funeral directors. There are now more than 100 such memorial societies, Arvio reports. A pamphlet, "A Manual of Simple Burial," by Ernest Morgan, provides a list of memorial groups as well as information on prepayment plans, memorial services, .cremation, bequeathal of bodies for medical purposes, eye and bone banks, etc. The manual is $1.50 from the Continental Association of Funeral and Memorial Societies, Suite 1100, 1828 L St. N.W., Washington, D.C. 20036. Rebecca Cohen, executive secretary of the association, will provide a free list of memorial services, upon request. The association says that planning in advance for a simple, dignified funeral can save expenses if purchasers get complete information on prices and alternatives including full facts about what laws do and don't require.

The Class of 1966, which numbered 62 members upon graduation, plans its next reunion in 1981. Know Your Bible By DOCTOR FULLER LOWRY via Wallace Joins Rest Of Family as Book Writer enough to invite the bumps and bruises a novelist gets," she said. "But things have been changing a lot in the last few years for women, and I've felt more free." She : wanted to write about women and the book centers on several -- a writer torn between marriage and -her career, a new divorcee, a career woman whose marriage has gone somehow awry, and others. "I needed a way to bring them all together, and so I settled on a beauty spa," she said. She asked little help from her husband in the writing of the book, she said, "because I had been so unhappy and resentful about not having been permitted to develop as a person that I felt it would be a cop-out to then turn to a man for help. I felt the need to be validated and I had to do it myself." Many people cannot differentiate between speaking in an unknown tongue and speaking in other tongues. Speaking in an unknown tongue can be performed by both saint and sinner. The unknown tongue is one nationality speaking Greek, Latin or Spanish to a crowd that knows only English and has never studied Greek, Latin or Spanish. The Bible opposes speaking in an unknown tongue without an interpreter. See I Cor. 14:27. Speaking to a crowd on health arid quote, "Mens sana in corpre sana," you should stop and tell what you said. Tell them it means a healthful mind in a healthful body. Don't speak in an unknown tongue without telling what you said. The Holy Ghost has no part in speaking in an unknown tongue. Now, the Holy Ghost was a guide to speaking in other tongues at Pentecost. Th^ Holy Ghost spoke in about 16 or 18 different languages and was fully understood as the Tallileons spoke to them in all the various languages present. The Holy Ghost spoke thru the apostles and was thoroughly understood in the various languages of the different nations present. Read Acts 4 thru 11 in the 2nd chapter. The speaking in other tongues was understood. SYLVIA WALLACE By JANE SEE WHITE NEW YORK (AP) - After more than 30 years as an invisible woman, Sylvia Wallace has come into focus. Since 1941 she has been the wife of best-selling novelist Irving Wallace -- the woman no one bothered to talk with at cocktail parties, so anxious were they to have a word with her famous husband. Her two children are also writers. David, 28, collaborated with his father on "The People's Almanac" and has written other books on his own. Amy, 21, is co-authoring with her father "The Two," a biography of the famous Siamese twins, Chang and Eng. But this year Sylvia Wallace has published a novel of her own, "The Fountains," and suddenly people want to talk with her, too. The book -- the story of five women at a beauty spa called The Fountains -- has had remarkable success for a first novel. Movie rights have been purchased, paperback and foreign editions are planned. Sylvia Wallace is wondering now if maybe she couldn't have done it a little earlier. . When she met Irving Wallace, she was an editor for a publishing firm and a freelance writer. But after their marriage and the birth of their son, she felt compelled to give up her career. "As a working mother, my guilt feelings were just unbearable," she recalled in an interview here. "I let myself be forced into a little box and be told, 'You must do the right thing.' " She was unhappy as a full- time mother, and eventually she turned to helping her husband as researcher and editor for his books. Finally, with children grown, she began writing her own book two years ago. "It just spilled out. It was astonishing," she said. "I might have been able to do it years ago if I'd felt capable. "But it's a risk to write a novel You want to do it very well and I just wasn't free ·^^^^············^OMBBWHWBBHBHHBBBBBIBHMMHMWBWBEWBB^^^M^MI^^^^^^^^^^^^^^*^^^^^^^^^^^^^^" V PUBLIC NOTICE The six separate Boards of Education in Robes on County (Lum- I berton City, Fairmont City, Red Springs City, Maxton City, St. Pauls I City and Robeson County Boards) find that it is absolutely necessary I that some clarification be made to the general public of Robeson Coun- ty regarding school appropriations for the 1976-77 school term. It has I become obvious to the various Boards of Education that there is a I misunderstanding as to the amount of County funds provided for the I operation of public schools in Robeson County for the 1976-77 school I term. The misunderstanding apparently exists due to the fact that with a County tax increase of approximately 23 percent for the coming I fiscal year most people were of the opinion that this increase was to and did provide a 23 percent increase in the public school ap- I propriations. While the fact is that the increase in revenue ap- I propriated to the public schools amounted to only a 10.5 percent in- I crease. With this 10.5 percent increase the Boards of Education find I that with the impact of inflation the operating services will np,t in any substantial way be changed as appropriations would amount to only a I "hold our own" status. \'; I The six Boards of Education want to make it clear to the public] that there was not a 23 percent increase in appropriations for the public schools. · I The Boards feel that the above stated clarification is necessary as I many people have expressed the opinion that the tax increase provided a 23 percent increase for the public schools and were expecting ex- I panded services as a result of this increase. I Above statement (Released by the Chairman of the following I Boards of Education: Lumberton City, Fairmont City, Maxton City, St. Pauls City Red Springs City and Robeson County). I
