f Golesbufg Register-Mail> Galesburg,, 111, Saturday; June 16, 1973 National Council of Churches Bungles Liaison With Roman Catholics By LOUIS CASSEIJS United Press International Througih a bureaucratic bun- World of Religion gle the National Council of Churches has blown its best chance of becoming the kind of organization implied by its name. At present the council is composed only of Protestant and Orthodox denominations (and by no means all of them.) In an effort to become more genuinely "national" in scope the council has for several years been making overtures to the Roman Catholic Church. The Catholic hierarchy was responsive to the idea of establishing some sort of official affiliation with the council. Joint working groups were set up to explore various bases for Catholic membership. Meanwhile the National Council and the U.S. Catholic Conference agreed to keep in close consultation and established liaison machinery lo coordinate their public statements and activities. All of that painstakingly achieved progress was wiped out last month when a public statement was issued over the name of the National Council of Churches blasting a proposal now pending in Congress lo give tax credits to parents for tuition paid to. parochial schools. The statement submitted to a congressional committee not only opposed tax credits, but also contained an allegation that Catholics are not unable, merely "unwilling," to pay the cost of their own school syvstem. Catholics regarded this as gratuitously offensive, a delib* erately insulting crack. Bishop James S. Bausch, general secretary of the U.S. Catholic Conference, Immediately withdrew all Catholic delegates from liaison committees with the National Council of Churches.

The resolution survived ai ' lengthy debate and an amend • ment introduced by Waller Muller, a lay delegate from • Peoria, which would have eiim- !. inated the amnesty provision. ! The resolution, approved 268107, did not ask for unconditional amnesty, according to a spokesman, only for those not in the battle zone. The resolution was presented by Rev. Miley Palmer, Champaign, who said after the vote, it "by no means represents the opinions of all United Methodists in Central Illinois, but it does show that a number of lay persons ani clergy, after long • and serious debate, are com* r mitted to binding the wounds of our nation. ..." Arguing for his amendment, -ii— «wh\e ic arnnestv. Church SERVICES i ' Muller said, "This is amnesty, I and I am opposed to it. Those i. who run away and leave their }'country are selective conscien- ; tious objectors.

Hear it on Radio WGIL Sunday at 7:45 A.M. How small a man seems—walking down a lonely road on a rainy day, with gaunt trees towering over him. How small man is, and how frail in body. The trees in the picture and even the chimneys on the old house will probably long outlive the man. Yet how big man is—in the things that are not of the body, but arc of the mind and soul. God has not made man mammoth. But He has made him potentially great—• if he will but accept the blessings given him, and use the tools of Christian teachings. Man finds in the Church, the encouragement and the instruction to enable him to make from his God-given divine spark something great and enduring—and of benefit to all human-kind.
