ALTON EVENING SATURDAY, AUGUST 31, 186S . »—•"• They Don't Care Which Church Employers Seek Traits Instilled by ion SOURCE OF POWER How much influence does religion exert behind the plant walls of Ameri- can industry? By STEVE COUSLEV TeleRt-nph; Staff Writer Employers seek characteristics in employes which religion lends to instill — such as good conduct, generosity, honesty and npighborliness, a Southern Illinois University Education professor says. David R. Van Horn, also director of the SIU placement service at the Edwardsville campus, said those qualities are sought by employers in all fields and are developed through the home, through Christian environment and through school and society. Commenting on Van Horn's assertion, an area industrial spokesman said that while laws do not permit employers to make any distinction as to race, color or religion wben considering the hiring of an employe, employers do indeed look for personnel who believe in the Golden Rule. Look for These Qualities "Though sve don't ask what church the prospective employe belongs to, or whether he attends church," he added, "there is no question but what we look for those .qualities in a person that religion tends to instill and we try to cull out those who do not have them." A student counselor in the Telegraph area agreed with both Van Horn and the industrial personnel manager. He said it has been his experience that students who have gone on to college or to jobs in industry have done better, percentage wise, if they have had the religious training to develop the qualities mentioned by Van Horn, than have those who hive not experienced this advantage. According to Van Horn, in the social, industrial and technical setting of today, the religious community must gear its programs to help its youth plan for living in tomorrow's society. Much In Common Because Christianity and the choice of a vocation today have much in common he says, the goal of the religious community must be to assist each youth to take his station in life, preparing him to accept the demands of future society. "Clear goals, broad ideas and flexible planning are necessary for the youth to plan for the future," Van Horn added. He maintains that in developing Christian ideals, habits and attitudes the religious community should demand excellence of its youth and discourage medi- ocracy. "How can the religious community assist our young people in choosing a vocation and pre paring them for success in the future?" he asks. Demand* More Complicated First, he says, since demands of business today are becoming more complicated, selection of personnel is for future needs. Because of this, the religious community can provide help for its youth in the form of assets that may not be found in other levels of our social structure. A worthwhile program of religious teaching should create in young people an awareness of themselves and of their obligations and destinies, he says. Qualities of self - expression and self - discipline also are important in our developing youth. Also of primary importance to youth, Van Horn emphasized is faith, the mark of the Christian which helps structure a body of ideas and value choices in youth. Faith gives the young person an opportunity to demonstrate his competence and ambition. Helpful to our youth, he says, are adults of the Christian community who can advise youth on why they selected their job and the path that led to this selcc tion, telling what happened to them along the way. They must inform youth on the background and competence necessary in their jobs.. Cliaplain Here Rev. Wolter Now Minister 40 Years The Rev. William E. Wolter, Protestant chaplains at Alton State Hospital, is observing his 40th anniversary in the Lutheran ministry. Ceremonies last Sunday at Messiah Lutheran Church, Milton Road, marked the public phase of the Rev. Welter's anniversary. 5 The anniversary was observed at the 10:30 a.m. service at the Church, when the pastor, the Rev. Carl Hilgendorf, spoke. In the afternoon, from 2 to 4 p.m., an open house and reception for friends of the Rev. Wolter was held. He was presented with a monetary gift. Present at the reception were the Rev. Welter's daughter, Miss Beverly Wolter of Winston-Salem, N. C.; his brother, George, a Waterloo, 111., teacher; and his brother-in-law, Paul Welge from Chester. The Rev.

At Own Expense Altonian Only One in County To Go to Angelican Congress A 43-year-old Alton steehvork- er was the only resident of Madison County to attend the recently completed Anglican Congress in Toronto, Canada. Ansel Taylor of 2220 Clawson St., a member of St. Paul's Episcopal Church, flew to Toronto on his own to view proceedings of the Congress strictly as an interested visitor. The Congress was equivalent to the recent Ecumenical Council sessions held by Catholic, he said. The nearest official delegate from Illinois came from Springfield, Taylor said. The steel- ivorker is employed as a "third lelper" on an open hearth fur- nice at Laclede Steel Co. Taylor said that the purpose of the Congress was to present a frank and open discussion of the role of the Anglican Church in the world today. Name Differs The Episcopal Church differs in name from the Anglican Church as a result of a break between the two during the American Revolution, he added. One point covered at the sessions was the preference of Episcopalians to be divorced from the Protestant movement. Episcopalians place more emphasis on the triune God—the father, the son and the holy ghost —than do Protestants, Taylor said. However, the Episcopal faith differs also from the Catholic faith, it was pointed out, since Catholics emphasize the "Holy ANSEL TAYLOR Mary" a great deal more. Of the 1,400 delegates to the Congress from 78 countries, 340 were representatives of Episcopal churches in the United States, Taylor said. Centered in the Royal York Hotel, the Congress was held Aug. 13-23. A resident of Alton since 1951, Taylor had no advance tickets for meetings and had to scramble with other visitors for seats on a first come, first serve basis, he said. Much of his time was spent rushing from meeting to meeting so he could find a seat in the visitors' section and view the proceedings. Taylor, originally from Jamaica, is active in church work at St. Paul's and is secretary- treasurer of a church organization known as "Men of St Paul's." He flew to Toronto on his own because he was intensely inter ested in participating in a worldwide church gathering. He mel and talked with delegates from Africa, India and the .Fiji Islands, learning of the worldwide need for schools, churches and educated people to give help. Taylor learned at the Congress that no matter where you go in the world, you're recognized if you're an Anglican. "It's just like being a Boy Scout," he commented. Highlights of his stay in Toronto, Taylor said, included hearing the Archbishop of Canterbury address a convocation and attending a rally of 15,000 persons at Maple Leaf Gardens Presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church of the United States the Rt. Rev. Arthur C. Litchten berg was presented an honorary degree at the convocation, he said. The huge rally was impressive he said, because of the number of people there and a dramatic announcement made at the rally Drawn up by leaders of the world 18- autonomous Anglican churches, the announcemen called for drastic revision of the church and virtual abdication as the Church of England as lead er of the world Anglican move ment. Men, Women Need New Pattern Of Partnership, Leaders Say By GEOKGE W. CORNELL Associated Press Religion Writer ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) — ihurch leaders say a "new pat- ern of partnership between men and women" is needed. "We are beset by the conflict- ng ideologies of masculine paternalism and aggressive femin- sm," said a report by the divi- ion of ecumenical action of the World Council of Churches, which ncludes most Protestant and Orthodox denominations. The male's impulse to rule the i-oost, and the woman's drive to outdo him are blighting relationships between the sexes, the study maitnained. Presented by Dr. Kathleen Bliss, of Sussex, England, chairman of the division, to the council's central committee, the report called for social patterns andn legislation expressing the "equal ity of men and women." In calling for standards of equality, the report said this didn't mean men or women should assume roles "alien to their natures and culture." A flurry of debate arose Wednesday after an address by Dr. Klaus Von Bismarck of Cologne, West Germany. He said churches both in the West and the lommunist East sometimes con- Fuse the gospel with state ideologies. Churchmen from Communist countries challenged this. "The Church cannot adopt Communist deology," insisted Bishop Tibor Bartha, of Debrecen, Hungary. Cherry Baptist Sunshine Circle Meets Thursday The Sunshine Circle class of the Cherry Street Baptist Church will meet at 7:30 p.m. Thursday in Fellowship Hall. Mrs. Bertha Brown, Mrs. Everett Bacus and Mrs. Jeanette jriffln will be in charge of the program. But he said that in the political economic realm, Communists in many areas "are doing a splendid job." Declared Russian Orthodox Archpriest Vitaly Borovoy, of Leningrad; "Even the Communists are frightened at the idea of any such confusion of the two, even if the churches attempted to promote it."
