Northwest Arkansas TIMES, T\je»., My W, 1974 FAVETTEVILLE. ARKANSAS Plan To Ordain 11 Women In Episcopal Church Raises Storm ·NEW YORK (AP) -- A storm whirled through the Episcopal Church today over plans for 11 women to be ordained in defiance of church disciplines. One critic called the move an invitation-to anarchy. Several bishops in the women's home dioceses said Ihcy would not be allowed to function as priests. "The tragic point of it is that If these very fine, qualified people go ahead and supercede the laws of Hie church, I can't go along with it." said Bishop Philip F. McNairy, of the Minneapolis diocese, where two of the women reside. He said they would be barred from serving there as priests. Similar reactions came from other bishops in charge of the home diocese of the women listed for an irregular ordination ceremony in Philadelphia next Monday. "I have no doubt of their sin- eerily but I have grave doubls about its practical wisdom and its- e f f e c t , on other women standing in line waiting for the priesthood," said J" sh °P George E. Rath, of the Newark N.J. diocese, where another candidate lives. He and other bishops con tacted said they would restnc' activities in their dioceses of women taking part.

There reppr tedly have been problems wit a few players monopolizing th courts. ps said they themselves favor hanges in church regulations o permit ordination of women, jut would not approve it with- «[ that authorization. "Tragedy of il is that the hureh is not ready to do what think we should have done a ong lime ago," said Bishop IcNairy. He said he saw the lanned ordination as "divid- ng, hurting and angering some eople and saddening others." In Austin, Tex., Mrs. Dorothy 'aber, editor of the Christian Challenge, said if the planners f the irregular service "get away with it, then the laws of lie church don'I mean a hing." The Christian Challenge is published by in independent Episcopal group, the Founda- ' m for Christian Theology. In Philadelphia, a local pas- or, the Rev. George Rutler, aid it would provoke a schism. Another paslor called the planned ordination arrogant ind irresponsible. Under the church canons, candidates for ordination must recommended by their home lisliop, the standing diocesan committee and the pastor and vestry of the home parish. So far as could be ascer- ;ained, home bishops of the w o m e n involved--and the standing committees--have not = iven that approval. According to some bishops, this could subject the women ordained to sus jension from the ministry, or rial and removal. They come 'rom seven states.

The church's Presiding Bishop John Maury Allin was reported trying to persuade two retired bishops involved, Daniel Corrigano now of Denver, and Edward Randolph Welles, now of Manset, Maine, not to go through with the service. A 1972 poll showed that a 74 to 61 majority of the Episcopal House of Bishops favor changes to allow ordination of women.

Cockrill said HUD is most interested in any proposition the Housing Authority and city board can come up with that HUD can legally go along with. "We have an open mind. It is our position that any proposal which doesn't require more nioney or materially expand the project will be given consideration," he said. He also explained Urban Renewal is bound by laws and regulations designed to protect properly rights of Americans. "You can't take a building and give it to a governmental agency. You can dispose of it by sale at a fair market value." Headquarters House Escapes With Minor Damage In Fire Headquarters House at 118 E.

Louis area is 2.74 Mills Seeks Cooperation On Inflation HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) -Rep. Wilbur D. Mills, D-Ark., said Monday the cooperation of the American people, the Congress and the President is necessary to end inflation. The House \Vays and Means Committee chairman said t h e four things necessary to end inflation all require such cooperation. He said spending at all levels of government must be reduced, the pressure toward tiigh interest rates must be ended, productive resources must be expanded and the cost per unit of production must be reduced. Mills said Americans must sacrifice much lo end inflalion. Ho urged labor to seek only moderate wage increases and management to ensure that the remainder of former wage demands be used for capital expansion and new jobs. The revival of wage-price controls, he said, is necessary to ensure that a new surge of wage-price increases will not further inflation. Mills repeated an earlier call for Congress and the administration to agree on a $10 billion reduction in federal spending during Ihe current fiscal year. He called this the most crucial step in an immediate assault on inflation. next to his counter scales, but ;he holup man spotted the move and took the weapon. However, the elderly grocer still wasn't ready to give up. As the bandit was about to leave, O'Neal grabbed a butcher knife and lunged at him before the gunman fired. "I felt the sting and I knew I'd been hit," O'Neal said. "But I was still able to chase him out the back door, cutting him as he ran." The bandit escaped and police say they have no leads. I n D e c e m b e r , O'Neal wounded one of three men who tried to rob him and last August he scared off two bandits with his pistol.

St. Clair said in a news conference Monday night that Doar now has abandoned his role as an impartial compiler of facts and become a prosecutor advocating Nixon's impeachment. That being the case, St. Clair said,, he too should be present to provide defense arguments. St. Clair's proposal was rejected by Rodino as outside the committee's rules, which do not permit participation by outsiders. "Mr. St. Clair has no further role as I see it," said Rodino. "He was given every opportunity. We bent over backward." Pennies Missing SPRINGDALE -- Nancy Henderson, 510 Maria St., told police she discovered $50 in pennies missing from her closet Sunday. She did not know when the pennies -- most of which were wrapped in paper rolls -were stolen. a combination of approaches, but added that practical experience indicates it will not be much less than $240,000. "I would be, less than honest If I said otherwise. Those are the facts," he said. REITERATES STAND Mayor Purdy reiteraled this and s a i d that meetings had been held during the afternoon to explore various routes and each time it came back to the proposition that the building must be transferred a t . fair market value. "We could^ not Tind any way around this," he said. In a second round of questions and comments it was noted that the fair market value also applies to buildings on the National Register. Cockrill said there are no restoration funds available under HUD and the Housing Authority could accept any proposal that would preserve the building but could not reduce the value. He suggested that funding for restoration might be available under other federal programs. Questions were raised about Ihe possibility of a long-term lease. HUD representatives said this would be invesligaled, but doubted thai HUD would favor a lease which would extend beyond the Urban Renewal project conclusion date of December 1976. "Under no stretch of the imagination can the Housing Authority be owner of a city hall," Fullerfon To Speak AI UA Wednesday William Fullerton, a member of the staff of the United States House Ways and Means Committee, will speak at the University of Arkansas Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. Fullerton is appearing at the Economic Education Workshop currently underway on campus.

Goes Religious AGAWAM, Mass. (AP) - NO POSITION Paul Lewis, representing DFU, said DFU had no position, but said the question needed to be resolved. "We will be happy which ever way it goes," he said. Mrs. T. C. Carlson, a city director, discussed the economic values as opposed to its value to the people and compared it to an effort to dispose of the Washington Monument or other national historic buildings. A proposal from Housing Commissioner . Bill Underwood to revise the plan to sell just the building with no land did not receive approval. "Such a proposal would not likely be approved by HUD; selling the building with only a few feet of land would depend upon what the land would be used for and won't prejudge this," Cockrill said. "We would like to have the building and the only question is cost," said Roy Clinton, also a housing commissioner. Clinton expressed concern aboul parking in the Square and said the work now under way in the area under the Urban Renewa program has affected business in the Square. His , suggestion that the r e m a i n i n g Urban Renewa funds could be returned to HUD brought wild applause from thi Ethiopia Names Prime Minister ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia (AP) -- Ethiopia's military re- 'ormers have picked Michael Imru, a 44-year-old aristocrat, lo be Emperor Haile Selassie's third prime minister in five months.
