Country Said To Be Ahead Of Leaders On Inflation Control By CHARLES WHITE AP Writer , Business leaders and econonv io experts are hopeful that the 'nation's fiscal , picture will brighten in the wake 'of President Nixon's resignation. But they coupled their optimism with a wait-and-see attitude towards the economic pol- .Â·icies that the Ford administration will adopt. James H. Needham, president of the New York Stock Exchange, said, ."The rapport that Vice President Ford has with the Congress bodes well for the economy." Predicting some improve- "ment in the stock market and -the outlook for investments was '.Hendrick Houtthsaker, a. for- toier member of the presidential Council of.Economic Advisers who is;now teaching economics .at. Harvard College. Â£. However, Houtthaaker said Interest rates probably would Â·not be affected -- "A lot de- pends on what President Ford says about economic policy after he is Inaugurated." Ford has had no opportunity to comment on'economic policy beyond expressing opposition to wage and price controls, said Houtthaaker. "If he Introduces a positive program, it is possible he will get a good deal of support, as part of the usual honeymoon a new president gets," Houtthaa- ker said. Edgar B. Speer, board chair man of U.S. Steel Corp., said "Being the great nation that we are, I am certain we will quick ly adjust to a new adminis tration without disruption of the country's economic and diplo matic life." The president of the Bank o North America, A.W. Clausen said, "With the air nov cleared, we fervently hope thi new administration, the Con gress and the people of th KiniiiiininiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiMiiiniiiiniiiiiiiiniiiii THE WEATHER --.

(AP Wirephoto) ' Christianity faces Struggle Against American Culture NEW YORK (AP) -- The na-' .ion's foremost Eastern Orthodox leader says that Christianity, once comfortably in harmony with American culture, now :aces a struggle against it. "There's been a breach," says Archbishop lakovos head of the Greek Orthodox Church in tlie Americas. He says the civic atmosphere, which in the past was conducive to faith, nas become fouled and n o v challenges religious life. "The church can no .longe; play second fiddle to the state on moral issues," he said in an interview at Greek Orthodoxy's headquarters. "Religion must be the one to enlighten people, to illuminate ife, to influence the nation. Instead of following, it must provide guidance. That responsibility has been placed on us and we must come -up to it." Archbishop . lakovos, whose 15th anniversary as head o: American Greek Orthodoxy is being observed this year, said a secularized nation seems gener ally to have abandoned its founding conviction that all hu man rights and dignity are de rived from a divine Creator. "The covenant and the dream seem to have faded," he said adding that the results show up in deteriorated ethical stand a r d s , corrupted politics blighted ideals and dismay. Historically,. Orthodoxy gen rally has shunned criticism of civic affairs and state systems, iut in the.modern atmosphere, Archbishop lakovos said the need is to free religion from domination by the prevailing secular-civil patterns. For that purpose, the church for the first time is establishing a social-concerns'office to work at applying Christian principles in national affairs, paralleling similar agencies in Roman Catholicism and Protestantism Orthodoxy, whose origins go back to the founding of the faith, split in 1054 A.D. w i t h western Roman Catholicism from which Protestants later separated. There are about 250 million Orthodox believers mostly in the eastern part of he world. They number about 6 million in this country in a dozen branches based on national origins, the largest of which is the 2-million-member Greek Orthodox Church. .. .03 Read It August llth in Man to Watch: Senator Lloyd Benfson Wants to be President "A Harris-poll in January Indicated that no man than two percent of the nation's Democratic voters .knew who he is."
