AP Wirephoto Map) Women's Ordination Set Today In Defiance Of Church Rules PHILADELPHIA (AP) -Amid wide controversy, , .11 women are to be ordained Episcopal priests here loday, the first of their sex to be given that clerical rank in 1 the church's history. . , The c e r e m o n i e s at Philadelphia's Church of the Advocate were set in defiance of the denomination's long-lime practice and regulations. ·· But in the view of the bishops conducting the services -- as well as that of Philadelphia's strongly disapproving Bishop Lyman Ogiiby -- the or- d i n a t i o n s will stand as theologically valid, although irregular. T h e officiating bishops declared Ihey were acting obedience to the spirit of a risen Christ who summons believers to "walk in newness of life" . in seeking freedom, liberation and dignity. The bishops adde.d: "Hearing His command, we can heed no other." Their course of action came in spite of a plea from Ihe church's presiding bishop, the Rt. Rev. John M. Allin, that they abandon their rebel maneuver. The women become the first in the western world to be ordained through the so-callec "apostolic succession" -chain of authority traced back to Jesus' apostles by laying-on of hands from one generation Recount Given On Impeachment Vole WASHINGTON (AP) - Her, is the 27 lo 1 roll call vote b' which the House Judiciar; C o m m i t t e e o n Saturday adopted an article recommend ing impeachment of Presiden Nixon on grounds of obstructing justice.

GM Employes Back To Work ANDERSON, Ind. (AP) Nearly 5,000 workers at General Motors' Guide Lamp Division plant here have voted to ratify a new contract and go back to work. Bud Miller, president of Local 663, said 55 per cent of the members who attended the meeting Sunday voted'to ratify. The .workers, members 'of United Auto'Workers Local 663, walked out Friday when contract talks stalled over wage issues. The plant makes headlights for' all GM car and truck divisions. UAW strikes at 'GM plants in Lordstown, Ohio, and St. Louis, Mo., continued today. The strike, begun June 28 by 5,700 workers in St. Louis, shut down assembly lines that make Corvette, Chevrolet light trucks and the Chevy Impala and Caprice.

Production of the Chevrolet Vega and van trucks there is at a standstill. 1 says the Lordstown strike is costing it a daily loss of 1,601) Chevrolet Vegas and 500 trucks. The company and union declared a news blackout on the talks and neither side has said if there has been any progress. Lordstown Local 1112, which has been without a local contract since September, struck July 12 in a dispute over a new Thornton Praised, Scorned For Vote liy The Associated Press Rep. Ray Thornton's vote for an article of impeachment of President Nixon has prompted predictions that Thornton, an Arkansas Democrat, will face political opposition in 197G. Thornton voted with Hie majority of the House Judiciary Committee late Saturday in sending an article ot impeachment to the full House. The 4th District congressman Is unopposed in his bid for a third term this year. State Rep. Preston Bynum of Siloam Springs, the only Republican in the Arkansas House, said he was bitter about Thornton's vote and predicted that Thornton would have trouble getting re-elected. State Sen. Jim Caldwell of Rogers, chairman of the state GOP, also said that Thornton would face "quite a bit of opposition" because of his vote. "I'm sure ' that there are strong conservative people in the 4th District who have some strong speculative feelings that this is an effort by liberals to get a conservative President out...." Caldwell said. However, Caldwell praised .he congressman for refraining : rom public discussion of the impeachment question prior lo the vote. He said he thought Thornlon had agonized over his decision and carefully evaluated the facts. Slate Sen. J. A. "Dooley" Womack of Camden had only praise for-Thornton. · "He probably conducted himself in one of the better ways of all the people I've seen," Womack said. "I've never been prouder of him." kansas Republican party, said Sunday that President Nixon should not resign even II the House delivers impeachment articles lo the Senate. Caldwell said that it Nixon resigned there always would be a question in some people's minds as to Nixon's guilt or in- cence. He said, however, that he did not think · lhat there was sufficient support in the House at this time to deliver an article of impeachment to the Senate. Caldwell, like other leading Democrats, said that the House Jiidicary Committlee's decision to recommend an article of impeachment did not surprise him. Gov. Dale Bumpers, the Democratic nominee for the U.S. Senate, declined to say whether he agreed with the committee's decision since he night be in a position of having o vote on the committee's action should a Senate trial be held. He said Sunday in a telephone interview from his Charleston home that he wasn't surprised ' by the committee's action,' but he said he had no mcnt since they were much broader. Caldwell said he was sure some partisanship was involved in the commillee's decision. However, Bumpers replied, I would certainly not like to think lhat anylhing as grave ns this had any partisan overtones." Sen. John L. McClellan, D Ark., said he was not suprised over the commillee's decision and he said he expected the committee to approve the remaining articles of impeachment. However, be declined to speculate on the chances that the full House would send the matter on to the Senate for trial. He said "scrupulously he wanted to maintain fairness until the issue comes to trial." Slate Rep. Preslon Bynum of Siloam Springs, the only Re* publican member ot the slats House of Representatives, said he was disturbed that the corrP mittee's voting had b e e n ac-. cording to strict party lines. ; If the vote had been based on pure evidence, Bynuni. contended, then there should have been some Democrats againstt impeachment idea whether the committee would recommend further articles of impeachment. VERY ARTICULATE : 'I thought that many of the m e m b e r s of the House Judiciary Committee who spoke on the subject were very arlic- ulale, and I think the American people saw some full-scale debate the very and deliberalion at finesl," Bumpers said. "I thought all of the men were extremely conscientious in Ihe positions fhey took," he added. "They certainly gave me the impression of agony and strong devotion." Caldwell said he wasn't qualified lo say whether he agreed or disagreed with the com- millee's decision since he had not seen as much information as the committee had. Caldwell predicted lhat there would be considerably more de :ate in the committee over the remaining articles of impeach- cdntract covering workers- 7,800 hourly Womack said he had received five or six telephone calls from people wanting Thornton's address or telephone number. He said three or four opposed Thornton, but he said a vast majority of the people in the district Womack had talked wilh agreed with Thornton's decision. "I thought he just exemplified some of the old kind of statesmanship that this country has got to have again," Womack added. Mayor Vaskell Carter of Crossett said Thornton's vote didn't affect anything as far as he was concerned. "We sent him up ther6 lo make Ihe decisions, and I'm with him all the way,"-Carter said. Carter said lhat should Thornlon seek re-eleclion .in 1976, he probably would vote for him. Alexander To Reserve Judgment MANILA, Ark. (AP) -- Rep. Bill Alexander, D-Ark., said Saturday that as far as he was concerned President Nixon was innocent until proven guilty-· Alexander said he was reserving judgment on the possible impeachment of Nixon at this time. The congressman was here for groundbreaking ceremonies for a 32-bed, $1.5 million hospital and for Mississippi County's "Bill Alexander Appreciation Day." Alexander said he thought it was incumbent on him as a congressman to review all of the evidence. "As far as I am concerned at :his point in lime, Ihe President is still innocent until he has been proven guilty," Alexander · said. "I've made no judgment whatever, and I will reserve, that judgment until such time as all the evidence has been presented."
