'COLD BU&"60T you STUFFED UP?^ TO OPEN STUFF/ NOSTRILS FAST... GET MENTHOLATUM W/CKl MUST BE MAGIC! SUCH MARVELOUS FLAVOR AT SUCH A LOW PRICE! "The World Council of Churches meeting at Amsterdam was the irst such meeting since the early days and the most representative ever," Doctor G. Ernest Wright old the Mason City Ministerial ^sociation at the group's all-day •etrcat Monday. Doctor Wright of McCormick j ;eminary in Chicago, addressed ! lie group in morning and after- ioon sessions and spoke at a dinner meeting at Hotel Hanford vhich was also attended by the wives of the pastors. The World Council is not a blueprint, not a glorified Christian Marshall plan, the speaker said, out an attempt to get a better un- lerstanding of 2 things: (1) What s a church? and (2) What are the disorders of our time? Not Evangelistic Doctor Wright said, "The moet- ng was a forthright discussion to ;ee where the church can stand together to face the issues of the day. Evangelistic speeches were purposely avoided and business sessions which often drown such gatherings were minor." Official representatives were on hand from 150 churches in 42 countries. They were represented by 351 official delegates and almost as many alternates. 3 Factors Considered In approaching Ihc theme of the conference, "Man's Disorder and God's Design," these 3 factors were considered, Doctor Wright said: (1) Our given unity in Jesus Christ, (2) Our deepest differences, and (3) The unity in our differences. Ho said that some press reports originating from the conference overplayed the failure to denounce communism outright. "There was never any debate among the many leading figures of the world who wrote the sec tion," Doctor Wright asserted. "They were all against communism's essentials, taut raised the question of how 'anti' we should be against it, just as they pointed out some of the flaws of the capitalistic system. Variety of Situations "In discussing the social function of the church, Christians should always remember the great variety of situations in which the church lives. Nations in which professing Christians are in the majority, nations in which the church represents only a few per cent of the population, nations in which the church lives under ; hostile and oppressive govcrnmen offer very different problems," he explained. In condemning many of the facets of communism, the Counci also pointed out the differences between Christianity and some forms of capitalism. It was notec that capitalism has produced inequalities by emphasizing thr success of making money and tha the distribution of essentials seldom took into account the ncer but went the way the profits go. The conclusion reached was tha the Christian church must seek new solutions which will not allow justice to be destroyed and obedience to God is possible under all conditions. The Rev. Wilbur F. Dicrking. pastor of the First Presbyterian church, presided at the morning and afternoon sessions and Doctor Lloyd A. Gustafson, pastor of the First Methodist church and president of the ministerial association. at the evening meeting. Doctor Wright went to Amsterdam to attend the Biblical section of the conference as one of the foremost authorities on the Old Testament.'- His section studied the problem of how to find the social and political message of the Biblo and how to get from thai point to the world situation today.

Funds Needed to Complete City's System Jan. 17 Also Date for Hearing on Bonds The night of Jan. 17 was set as the time- for a hearing on a proposed ordinance by the city council for a rental on the sewers of Mason City as a means of raising money with which to complete the present sewer and water system and correct drainage faults in the city. These two problems, very much in the spotlight of council proceedings for the past year, face the city without its having a means of raising money with which to carry out the work. The council's proposal of a rental on sewers is its econd proposal the means of •aising funds by assessment hav- ng been inndecuiate. Paid by Users According to the proposed or- imance, the rental will be paid 5y all users at a "just and cquit- nble rate." Charges will be about 40 per cent of ihc average water bill, and will be added to the j water bills. I The hearing has been sot for the city hall at 7:30 p. m.
