"We set aside all desire lo er/gage in retaliatory action," the denomination said, adding that it wanted to act "in heal the wounds of division." The delegates voted to authorize preliminary churchwide study of a plan for reunion with t h e U n i t e d Presbyterian Church, a larger national body. Similar affirmation by the United Presbyterians, whose concurrent meeting here runs hrough next Wednesday, was considered certain.

Congress is l e m a n d i n g that the adminis- ration restrain inflation, Dun- op said, white on the other it is onsidering guaranteed loans ind import quotas for the beef ndustry to keep meat prices rotn falling.

Addressing the Sacred Col- ege of Cardinals in his annual State of the Church and the Vorld Message, the pontiff said: "We do not wish to pass over n silence the new ray of hope for peace in the Middle East which has been kindled by the intense activity and the converging efforts of men in the high posts of responsibility -- a peace so yearned for and so difficult." The pontiff said he shares "in he sorrow of one side and of he other when Ihey are struck y violence which creates vic- ims also among the innocent and the defenseless." The Pope called the violence n Northern Ireland a "continuing tragedy," and reaffirmed ]is 'belief in the "rights of the peoples" in the Portuguese African territories of Mozambique, Angola and Portuguese Guinea, The pontiff said mankind lives in a time of turbulence and materialism, and appealed Texan Fined AUSTIN, Tex. (AP) -- Li. Gov. Bill Hobby was placed on nine months' probation and fined $100 after he pleaded no contest to a charge of driving while intoxicated. Hobby, 42, was arrested at 2:'!0 a.m. Thursday with a woman companion whom he identified as Ann Chisholm, "a friend of the family." An ice chest, an empty half-gallon wine bottle and a f i f t h of Scotch two-thirds empty were found in Hobby's car, arresting officers said.

She also said the hoot on her car was .found raised or an era of "renewal and re- onciliation. 11 The Pope's address came a day after he' observed his llth anniversary as {he supreme )on(iff of the world"s 6ijO mil- ion Roman Catholics. His an- lual message is delivered to he Sacred College of Cardinals on the day marking his named- ay, Giovanni. The Pope's name s Giovanni Montini. "Man's condition is very uncertain," be said. "Violence in all forms degrades him and drags him down to the level of a pawn in a blind game ... Man above all is conditioned today )y a materialistic atmosphere rom which he cannot free himself." Reviewing the state of his church, Pope Paul mentioned ts "vitality," but also stressed 'its need to change itself." He also cautioned against "dangerous deviations," w i t h o u t naming any. "We know how the some- imcs tormenting search to fin( their proper. place in the community has led some priests to confuse their particular mandate with a role that is social political and pragmatic," he said. "It has induced them to imitate the world and to im :sm." The Pope also paid homage -o the church in Communist ands, recalling "the sufferings :he limitations and the pres sures to which she is subjected today in various parts of the world."

Dunlop, who will be 60 next montli, will cease being director of the Cost of Living Council when it formally go«s out of Business on June 30. He plans to return to Harvard University where tie is a professor of economics, but he will serve as a part-time adviser to White louse economic coordinator Kenneth Hush. Dunlop made clear he feels olh Congress and the adminis- .ration should do more to com- lat inflation, which has resulted in consumer price in- :rcases of 10,7 per cent in the ast 12 months. Use of fiscal and monetary policies alone by the adminis- .ration .will be inadequate because of political considerations, he said. Congress, on the other hand, must settle on an economic policy and stick to it, Dunlop said. A year ago Congress was demanding a price freeze, he said, while now it optioses a much less restrictive price restraint program. "What the country needs ar« long-run policies on which decisions of business and collective bargaining can be made," he added. He emphasized there are no easy answers to inflation and t h a t it can bo brought u n d e r control only over a long period of time. Amnng other points he made: --Some of the achievements of the 2W-years-old wage and price control program, particularly in health costs and construction wages, already are being undone in the seven. weeks sitice the program expired. --The country was fortunate it had a wage and price control program in place at the time of the Arab oil embargo; otherwise, domestic oil prices probably would be double what they OZARK HOME and GARDEN CENTER (formerly Brown's Seed Store) Is Open and Ready to Serve You With A New Shipment of Select Nursery Stock Ready To Plant Now! * Holly * Juniper * Italian Cypress * Crepe My rile * * Magnolia * Fragrant Jasmine *Pyracantha * Heavenly Bamboo Cactus Gardens * Bonzai Plants and much more! 20 Township Road VA Mile West of Whit Chevrolet 442-5311 S5*»k««^-:3a*:*2m '-"5 3,
