CORNELL TORONTO <*)—Are Lutherans too restrictive about giving women special status as servants of the church? This question was up for debate today at the convention of the United Lutheran Church in Ameri ca. A plan to give women more free dom in becoming deaconesses was proposed in a reorganization plan at the denomination’s biennial co vetion. The idea stirred a flurry of op position yesterday among dele gates, who declared such a role should be given only to those who entered it for life. Special Status The church, which does not or dain women ministers, has a dia conate—a special status—for sin gle or unmarried women wwo pledge full-time service to church work. The present concept for such a position is “too restrictive,” a commission on church reorgani zation said. “The present tendency is to make .a diaconate a sisterhood which approaches an order.” Declaring the door should be opened to more women in this cat egory, the commission recommend ed that any woman who gives full- Healing Power Of Christ Topic At Christian Scinece The ever-availability of the heal ing power of the Christ, Truth, will be brought out at Christian Science services tomorrow. “Are Sin, Disease, and Death Real?” is the subject of the Les son-Sermon. Selections to be read from the Bible include the account of Christ Jesus’ healing of the leper as given in Matthew (8:1-3): “When he was come down from the mountain, great multitudes fol lowed' him. And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.” Among the passages to be read from “Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures” by Mary Baker Eddy is the following (142:31): “Truth is God’s remedy for error of every kind, and Truth destroys only what is untrue. Hence the fact that, today, as yesterday, Christ casts out evils and heals the sick.” those referred by the Army have secured employment. Transients are housed at the Tropical Hotel and fed at Rene’s Restaurant. Officers of the Salvation Army board of directors are Hugh Dug gan, chairman; Wilhelmina Har vey, vice chairman; Joe Boza, treasurer and Grace Crosby, secre tary. Lt. and Mrs. Russell live and have their office at 317 Peacon Lane. The phone number is 2-6537. time church service—temporarily or for life—be eligible. Change Suggested H. Ober Hess, of Norristown, Pa. would “open the diaconate to tran sient women workers” who are only in the work until something better comes along. And would de stroy the “distinctive character” of the diaconate. Hess proposed that the plan be changed to give deaconess status only to those who contemplate permanent work in that category. The convention, representing 2,- 150,000 members across the United States and Canada, approved a huge, two-year evangelism pro gram. It will cost more than half a million dollars, and feature special missions of preaching, home visitations and other activi ties. Lt. Col.

One of the questions uppermost in men’s minds, is why God allows evil to exist in the world. Job faced the same problem. He had endured reverses, ridicule, and physical tor ture and now in today’s lesson he is about to get an answer to his question. When we note the suffer ing and evil in the world, the af fliction and injustice, too many of us surrender and say, “what’s the use?” while others, like Job, re fuse to leave town, just stick it out, and try to find the answer. Job's Reward Life Magazine recently published J. Parnell Thomas’ impression of treatment received within the pri son walls at Danbury, Connecticut. After detailing his experience he suggests that every senator and representative should have know ledge of the conditions existing in our penal institutions. If they did have there would be sweeping re forms. The humiliation and abuse to which he was subjected by the communists he had put behind pri son bars made life at times almost unbearable. He seems to have en dured all this with the patience of Job. Job was rewarded most gener ously by the return of his wealth and property and also with a bet ter knowledge of God. His experi ence is an example of the fact that God stands by the faithful and re veals himself to those who seek him in spirit and truth. God is not a persecutor but indeed a friend. It may be that we must be sub ject to earthly trials and tribula tions in order that we might appre ciate the goodness and love of God more. Job experienced what we must all Public Invited To See Movie “John Wesley” Ley Memorial Methodist Church, 1304 Truman Avenue at Bayview Park, will present two showings of the new motion picture “John Wes ley” tomorrow night at 7:30 and 9:00 o’clock.

God Is Always Near “Jehovah answered Job out of the whirlwind.” The whirlwind is the storm that had been raging in Job’s life. It was not really the fury of the hurricane from which God spoke but out of the deep sha dows and questions of poor afflict ed Job. Job had the privilege of speaking directly to God and when God explains what was going on then it was that Job became a pen itent and stronger man. Too often we are unable to see beyond the cloudy of the storm. When Moses saw the burning bufih it was when he stopped to see, “God called unto him." (Ex. 3:4). It is hard for people to see or hear God through the trials which irk them. We do not even want to look at the things that, disturb us. We don’t like to look at things that are an offense, that upset tradition, hurt our pride or disagree with our prejudice. Once a reviewer cut to pieces and mercilessly criticized a ser mon preached by John Timothy Stone. Dr. Stone wrote the editor and agreed with him when he won dered why so many people went to hear such stuff. The reviewer then wrote, “Dr. Stone’s letter is the answer to my question. They] come because he is a great soul!” Pride is blind, not love.
