6—Uklah Daily Journal, Uklah, Calif. Friday, July 12, 1974 irnal/lJ Watergate--What is By DAVID D. ANDERSON UPI ReUgkm Writer Religious leaders of all theological and political persuasions agree that the Watergate scandal reveals some kind of flaw in the instilling of a moral base through the educational process. One response to that vacuum has come from the National Educational Association, a major teachers' union. The NEA has announced that, with Watergate as the catalyst, it has put together a series of lesson plans on the problems of morality associated with the government scandal. "Too often," an NEA spokesman said, "Teachers have felt they could only show good citizenship by being totally loyal to the government and never questioning what it ac. tually does." He added that the NEA lesson plans show that the "system is fine" but some individuals within it have caused problems. The lesson plans are divided into three age groups — kindergarten to fourth grade, fifth through ninth grade, and 10th grade through the junior college level. At the earliest grade levels, children play a game called "Playing Fair," in which they deal with playground situations with an attempt to learn how to treat others fairly. Some theologians, however, are worried that attempts to teach children about morality in the post-Watergate era still make dramatically wrong assumptions about people's innocence. "We cannot bring a stronger morality to public places," according to Roman Catholic lay theologian Michael Novak, . "nor increase even by a little the circle of morality in our private lives, unless first of all we clear the mist of false innocence from our eyes." Novak, writing in the current issue of A.D. magazine, a joint publication of the -United Presbyterian Church and the United Church of Christ, stressed that the lesson of Watergate is not that there is Rev. Schmrtf s topic is lion in the Streets' "A Lion is in the Streets" is the title of Dr. Elmer Schmitt's sermon this coming Sunday, July 14, at the United Methodist Churchy Smith and Pine Streets. The service begins promptly at 9 a.m. followed by a fellowship hour in the Social . Hall. Church school begins at 10 a.m. and, in addition to having " classes for grade school children, also includes at least two adult discussion groups. Adjournment is scheduled for 10:40 which makes just "100 minutes for God" to start out the Lord's Day. The title of Pastor Schmitt's message comes from Proverbs 26:13-14. During July his sermons have been based on a study of this famous book of wisdom. Those who are old enough and are familiar with American' history will also recognize the title of a well-known novel that appeared in 1945. While the book is fiction (written by. Adria Locke Langley) and contains , the usual "any likeness to characters either living or dead is purely coincidental" it was generally accepted that it was a thinly vieled partial biography of the then-famous demagogue Huey Long. Special treat at the worship service will be a musical number by veteran members of the choir including Jack and Marie Goudge, Duane and Kathryn Thompson. People coming off the midnight shift and brave souls that can get up early enough will be welcomed by a continental breakfast at 8:30 a.m. 'Children' topic of mossago Sunday First Christian Church will gather at 10 a^m. this Sunday for Morning Worship, concentrating on Jesus' teachings about children. . Pastor. Bob Lewis will speak on the topic, "True wisdom is the ability, shared by children and saints, to look at themselves and the world and to see what is really there." some higher morality of a mythical past to recapture. "Our children need to be told often and accurately about the power of evil," Novak said. ''Once we grasp the power of evil in each of'us," he added, "we are in a better position to base our families upon an accurate Christian realism." Novak presently serves as assistant director of the Rockefeller Foundation's humanities program, For Novak there were two wrong lessons to teach about Watergate: first, and suggested by several of the young men caught in the web of the scandal, was politics is always corrupt and people should stay out of it; secondly, the sentimental and nostalgic idea that there was some "higher morality of our ancestors." "Can any truly believe that the nation is less moral in 1974 than in 1934...or in any other year?" he wrote. The trouble with Americans, he said, was that "we want to be moral so ardently that we begin to imagine that we are moral. We Want others to believe that we are a good people." But the Founding Fathers, he said, did not delude themselves about the goodness of tjie American people, "They didn't trust anybody. "American democracy is built upon the premise that human beings are too corrupt to trust." The need, he said, is to develop a Christian realism which will uncover "one deception at a time, day by day...setting up systems of detection that penetrate public masks and hold powerful tendencies in check." SUNDAY CONCERT APPEARANCE — The "Real Life" Singers. Real Life' Singert will appear in Five dedicated young adults from the Santa Rosa area, participate in various moods of worship, during a well-rounded concert of sacred music and sharing.'
