Church Panel Approves Resolution on Abortion ST. LOUIS (UPI)-The General Board of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) Tuesday approved a resolution ; urging the study of abortion by the, denomination's general assembly in Cincinnati in October. The board disapproved a resolution condemning the Supreme Court action in overrid- Loses Checks SAN DIEGO, Calif. (UPt) The 4,000 faculty and staff members of California State University at San Diego miss their payday today. Their paychecks—more than $2 million worth—have been lost in the mail, school officials said. The checks were mailed from Sacramento last Friday, special delivery. School and postal officials say they have no clue what happened to them. State officials are preparing new checks if the first batch doesn't turnup. ing stiafte laws on abortion. The approved resolution states that the abortion issue "should be outside the realm of state law." It supports the right of the individual to de cide on abortion and urges congregations to support women making such a decision. In other action Tuesday, the board decided in favor Of a quota system for its membership at one4hird laywomen, one-third laymen and one-third clergy. Extended Debate . Thle decision was made after extended debate. The board also agreed that the quota system should be studied further and approved the resolution to go to the general assembly. There was some arguments against the quota system, but the Rev. T. J. Liggett of Indianapolis, president of the denomination, argued that other American Protestants would believe the Disciples are con­ doning injustices to women without some quota system. He said the quota system would not be permanent. Mission Work Dr. Helen Spaulding, vice president of the Disciples' division of homeland ministries, reminded board members that women organized the Disciples' mission work 99 years ago. The board has 221 members, of whom 61 or 27.6 per cent are women. The board passed several other measures in support of women's rights. One resolution called on states to pass the Equal Rights Amendment and indicated that denying such rights to women is "morally indefensible." The board also urged women to enter the ministry and asked local congregations to consider filling their pulpits with women. It called for awarding scholarships fior training more women as ministers. Irish Parliament Meeting Ends In Confusion BELFAST (UPt) The first session of a new Northern Irish "parliament" ended Tuesday in confusion and disorder that mirrored the situation in the streets of Belfast and Londonderry. In Londonderry, youths hurled rocks, hijacked two buses, erected barricades and dashed with troops at the end of a daylong demonstration. In Belfast, gunmen fired several shots at troops attempt ing to arrest a girl spotted carrying a rifle. A hostile crowd also attacked the troops, who fired rubber bullets to disperse them. Two persons were reported seriously injured. Coinciding with the street troubles was the first meeting of a new 77-member assembly meant to take over some of the functions of the parliament suspended by Britain last year when London assumed direct rule over the province. The meeting ended in an uproar with militant Protestant factions refusing to leave, to protest the refusal of the presiding officer, Nat Minford to accept a censure motion. Militants led by the Rev. Ian Paisley and onetime cabinet minister William Craig had sought the censure to protest ruling by Minford that, under a directive from Britain's chief official in Northern Ireland, the presiding officer would set up a committee to recommend I procedural rules. Hospital Offers Unwed Mothers New Program WAUKEGAN, III. (UPI) - A Roman Catholic hospital here announced Tuesday an alterna tive program to abortion for unwed mothers which includes medical care, employment and living facilities. Sister Maryann, executive vice president and administrator of St. Therese's Hospital, said the plan provides for living facilities in a hospital residence hall, prenatal care and classes, pro fessional counseling, spiritual help and social activities, gain ful employment during pregnancy at the hospital and de- frayant of expenses for those in an advanced state of pregnancy who cannot support them selves. "We consider this plan to be progressive, sensitive to human needs, contemporary and, from our point of view, a distinct alternative to abortion," she said. Sister Maryann told a news conference that under the plan facilities are provided so that foster parents may be found through proper agencies for the children. She said there are no facilities for those'unwed mothers who elect to keep their babies. Golesburg Register-Mail, Galesbura, III.
