(UPI) — Several months ago 200 Southern churches asked permission to leave the Presbyterian Church of the U.S., complaining that it was dominated by Northern, liberal churches. The 200 wished to form a more conservative wing of the organization, or perhaps a new organization altogether. That request, simple on the surface, begins a historical debate within the 950,000- member religious organization today, a debate expected to dominate what was already predicted to be a heated weeklong meeting of the Presbyterian Church of the U.S.'s 113th General Assembly.

Monday, June 11, 1973 7 Two More Killed in Belfast Skirmishing The 450 commissioners, or voting delegates, will be asked for specific guidelines on the treatment of churches and ministers which want to leave the denomination, and church leaders have said the possible split has not been matched since the schism which developed during the American Civil, War. Dr. Charles E. S. Kraemer of Richmond, Va., was elected moderator of the organization Sunday and will lead debate on the issue, and other problems facing the delegates. Other controversial issues include a church statement on abortion, the distribution of pornography and a section on Government Shuffle in Spain Expected To Be Announced MADRID (UPI) - Political sources said today Francisco Franco, the leader of Spain for 33 years, has approved a sweeping and possibly imminent overhaul of the government by new Prime Minister Luis Carrero Blanco. The announcement of the new government could come today, the sources said, and could take office Tuesday. The sources said eight of the current 18 cabinet ministers would leave office, among them Foreign Minister Gregorio Lopez Bravo and Interior Minister Tomas Garicano. Carrero reshuffled the government after Franco, 80, ended the constitutional link between the offices of the chief of state and the chief of government and named Carrero prime minister Saturday. Appointment of the 70-year- old prime minister automatical­ ly meant the cabinet would resign. It was last unchanged in 1969 when Franco replaced five ministers in the wake of a financial scandal. The sources said the new cabinet will hold its first formal session Thursday —on the eve of the arrival of new Argentine President Hector Campora and his entire cabinet, coming to Madrid for a five-day official visit before returning home with exiled former President Juan D. Peron. The announcement of the new government will end Spain's first period without a government since the civil war that resulted in Franco's coming to power more than 34 years ago. Franco had held all four of Spain's top offices and still holds the positions of chief of state, armed forces commander-in-chief and head of the state's only political party, the National Movement. patriotism; proposals for aiding victims of the Vietnam War; a report on a proposed confession of faith and requests for statements on escalology, or a branch of theology dealing with final things such as death, judgment and Immortality. Kraemer, 40, president of the Presbyterian School of Education in Richmond, was the only man nominated to replace Dr. L. Nelson Bell of Montrcat, N.C, the outgoing moderator and father-in-law of evangelist Billy Graham. While considering the issue of the churches wishing to leave the group, the commissioners will also debate one problem created by a proposed 1974 merger with the United Pres bytcrian Church, U.S.A. The commissioners will consider removal of an "escape clause" in that union, or a clause which would allow churches not wishing to participate in the merger to become independent churches, while retaining their names and property.

A command spokesman said 10 government militiamen and eight Communist troops were killed in a Sunday battle 43 miles southwest of Saigon. Another 10 South Vietnamese were wounded in the fighting. The fighting, he said, started when Communists attacked a militia outpost three miles northeast of Cai Lay and it ended when militiamen beat back the attack. Two Communist troops were killed in fighting Saturday within eight miles of downtown Saigon, the spokesman said. There were no government casualties, he said. Fighting that broke out Saturday and lasted until dawn Sunday on the central coast 310 miles northeast of the capital left four government rangers dead and 25 wounded, the command said. On the political front, South Vietnamese government sources said President Nguyen Van Thieu objected to provisions of the latest truce agreement worked out by Henry A. Kissinger and Le Due Tho in Paris. This, they said, blocked the expected signing of the pact Saturday. Instead, Kissinger flew back to Washington and is expected to return Tuesday to the French capital for more dicus- sions with Tho on how to make the Vietnam cease-fire work. The sources in Saigon said Thieu refused at the last minute to allow signing of the new agreement after carefully scrutinizing a section of the pact dealing with delineating zones of control. He learned, the sources said, that the pact would require his army to maintain garrisons of 38 men in villages to claim them as being, under government control while the Viet Cong could claim villages ji where they maintained only six HUM). Thieu considered this unfair, the sources said, and refused to authorize the signing. O.T. Johnson Co., Galesburg's Greatest Store Since 1862! SHOP O.T.'s 10 TO 9 MONDAY & FRIDAY OTHER DAYS 10 to 5.
