A year ago. Gov. Richard B. Ogilvie's $29-million program to aid private schools died in the Senate Education Committee after passing the Illinois House. Most of the committee witnesses against state aid represented Protestant churches or public school interests. One witness, however, was different. Leo Jordan, a Bloomington attorney, testified that hr was a Catholic and was opposed to state aid to private schools Federated Church pastor resigns at Carlinville CARLINVILLE — The Rev. Wendell Stanford, pastor of the Baptist - Presbyterian Church, Federated, has submitted his resignation, effective April 15, 1071.' The Rev.

He has also served as president, and secretary-treasurer of the KEY. STANFORD (! ;i r 1 i n v i I I c Ministerial Association. During his pastorate the local church purchased the Annex next to the church, which is now used for an expanded Sunday School classes. It also purchased the parsonage on South Broad Street in C a r 1 i n v i 11 c . The church edifice, the annex and the parsonage have all been redecorated under the Rev. Stanford's guidance. During his pastorale several different groups have participated in various religious programs at nursing homes in the Carlinville area. Young people from Blackburn Colic g'J and the local congregation as well as adult lay leaders have been encouraged to conduct the morning worship services on special occasions. Large groups from the congregation have also journeyed to St. Louis to o'liservc and assist churches in the inter-city with their problems. The Rev. Stanford is a graduate of Colgate-Rochester Divinity School at Rochester, N.Y. He held pastorates at Belleville, Canton, Stillwatcr and Franklin, all in New York, before coming to Carlinville.

"They pointed out the difficulty of honoring appeals for state funds when the pleading institution does not reveal its present assets to its members or to the public at large." The Chicago archdiocese has led the drive for public aid to parochial schools. NAL claims that the archdiocese has never revealed its assets or financial condition. "For several months the Archdiocese of Chicago ignored written and telephoned requests for information on its financial condition," NAL's report states. "Officials refused to accept or return phone calls." Ilev. Thomas Brady of the Rockford diocese said recently that two grade and two high schools have closed, and tutition has increased from $50 for elementary students to $100 per semester for high school students. However, the Chicago archdiocese Wednesday made a public disclosure of its financial assets for the first time in its history. The report showed the diocese with assets totaling $85,505,000 including an investment portfolio of nearly $29 million. Seventy per cent of its assets — about $53 million — were collected from parish contributions. According to NAL, the diocese published a financial report for the year ending Dec. 31, 1968 but data for 1969 and 1970 "is not available." The 1968 statement contained income and expenses but no breakdown of assets and liabilities. NAL estmiated that the Jlockford diocese had an investment portfolio which yielded $1.2-million in 1968. Spokesmen for the Peoria diocese replied to a NAL query on its financial status that financial reports are made available only to subscribers of the diocesan newspaper. "Lack of state aid definitely has hurt us," Rev. Eugene Finnell of the Peoria diocese said recently. In the past four years, 16 grade and high schools have closed. Tuition increases average $50 per semester for the 11 high schools remaining in the diocese. Religion Section State, U.S. will probe mine blast HYDEN, Ky. (AP) — Federal and state inspectors enter the Finley Coal Co. mine today searching for the cause of an explosion that claimed the lives of 38 miners last Wednesday. The inspection team is headed by James Westfield, an assistant inspector for the^ U.S. Bureau of Mines, and H.* N. Kirkpatrick, state commissioner of mines and minerals. "We will start without previous thoughts of prejudices,'' Westfield said. "The cause of the explosion will be so apparent that even a child can see it." Speculation prior to the actual investigation centered on the disaster being caused by a combination of explosives and coal dust. Everett Barlett, local supervisor for the state Department of Mines and Minerals, crawled through the right shaft during rescue attempts Wednesday and Thursday. "Explosives were involved BETHALTO UNITED METHODIST CHURCH 240 E. Sherman Gary D.

Bartlett said he felt the initial explosion occurred in a personnel earner that reportedly was carrying a cargo of explosives at about the time of the disaster. He said rescue workers found the personnel carrier about 1,600 feet into the mine. "I felt like that was where it happened," Barlett said. "We found three bodies there. They were torn up much worse than any others that I saw." He added, however, that his conclusions were based on hasty observation, made while wearing a gas mask and "we IN BETHALTO it's the ASSEMBLY OF GOD Sherman & Sheridan St. B. P.
