LEE Sees Dissatisfaction SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A high-ranking leader of the' Church of Jesus Christ of ,Lat-. ter-day Saints (Mormon) told the church's semi-annual conference today that .more- and more non-Mormons throughout the world are becoming dissatisfied with their churches. Harold B. Lee, member of the LDS First Presidency, said that during recent visits to the Far East and Europe, he met many persons "who are seeking answers to problems which confront them on every side." "We have sensed that everywhere there is much dissatisfaction with the churches to which they have belonged," he said during the conference's morning session. "They are clamoring for security or salvation, not-just in • the world to come, but for a temporal salvation here and now, that they don't have to die to get. "They are looking -:'for a church where there is not only unity to be found within their local congregations, but which reaches out "in a unification of effort in meeting the challenging problems confronting mankind." That church is the Mormon Church, President Lee indicat- ed. , . . He echoed the theme of Mormon Church President Joseph' Fielding • Smith's conference speech Friday—that all people .throughout the world were invited to become church members. "As we visit the various countries . . . we have noted the.un- . mistakable signs of a strong desire on the part of our Church members to see the Church gro win their own countries," he said. "We are witnessing a great- expansion of the work of the Church throughout the world." President Lee also warned against the presence of false Christs and .'false p'rophets in • the world today—one of the signs' Christ said .would precede the end-of the'world. -"We are actually seeing this present among us .today, where individuals are coming, forward today with claims. of Diety for their leaders," he said. Mark E. Petersen of 'the Council of the Twelve, another speaker at today's morning session,'warned the 8,000 Mormons present to guard against dishonesty, selfishness and laxness in religion. .. .....-..-. . "In our society, is there anything more, widespread than the tendency" to lie and deceive?" he asked. ' "Christians must learn there is-nothing Christlike in deception," Petersen, said. "There is no righteousness in hypocrisy. There is nothing • good about a lie.". •• He added, "If we are interested: in the gospel in' the least degree, we'should live it wholeheartedly. There is no point in deceiving ourselves and becoming :victims of our own indiscretion. • "To be halfhearted about it is repugnant to the-Lord," he said. In'a Friday'speech, to the See Page 3, Column 3 MARK E. PETERSEN Sounds Warning AIRLINER EXPLODES OVER BELGIUM; 63 LIVES LOST? •-.: -...

DISCLAIMS POLITICS Thieu said he was speaking as President and not as a candidate 4or re-election. The campaign period legally ended at noon todajj&JSid the speech therefore could'not technically be a political speech, although it dealt entirely with the election. . In Hue, between 50 and 150 university students burned election posters and hurled fire bombs at police in a three-hour antigovernment demonstration. Police, who fired their rifles in the air to break up the demonstration at Hue in the .North, arrested 20'students. Witnesses said some of them were kicked and clubbed as they were apprehended. In Saigon, teenage youths stopped and set fire to a U.S. Arym bus Jn suburban Gia Dinh, triggering a melee- in which police again fired their rifles in the air to disperse the crowd.

VATICAN CITY (UPI) -The bishops agreed the question was worth consideration. Archbishop Maxim Hermaniuk of the Ukrainian Rite .in Wnnipeg, Canada said both celibate and married priests were authentic priests. An African cardinal warned that celibacy is more-of an issue itt African countries than anyone suspects. But Cardinal Joseph Koffner of Cologne, West- Germany, who made the keynote speech' Friday, .said no further-examination of the celibacy issue was necessary for, the time being. DEBATE CONTINUES Debate continues today. • The subject . of ' celibacy emerged during full-scale- dialogue oh. the priesthood Friday with' a dozen speakers at the third and largest Synod''of Bishops -alluding to it" or mentioning it outright.
