(NC Photo) Oberammergau Passion Plag Substantiallg Oberammergau, Germany (NC) -- Preparations for the 1970 performances of this village's famed and now controversial Pas- sion Play are under way without any substantial changes in the script, which has been attacked as anti-Semitic. Some references considered offensive to Jews, however, have been cut -- expressions such as "damned synagogue" and "gen- eration of vipers" -- and the play has been shortened by one hour to last about six and a half hours, Worldwide pressure for changes in the text of the present version, used for the play since the 1630's Castle Keep Putney Swope Stiletto Condemned Camille 2000 Unchanged followed the Second Vatican Coun- cil's declaration absolving the Jewish people of guilt in the death of Jesus. Debate over changing the text split this mountain village, but in preparing for the 1970 perfor- mances the town elders decided that time was too short and the townspeople's devotion to theplay too deep to permit a replacement of the text or any farreaching changes. In doing so they rejec- ted a new version worked out by a Benedictine priest of the Ettal monastery, F a t h e r Stefan Schal- ler. Most of the 550,000 tickets for the 98 performances next year have been sold and officials said they may have to turn down more than a million requests for tick- et s. Although text changes were rejected for the 1970 performan- ces, the possibility of a future revision was indicated at a press Warren Baldwin, Jr. The Insurance Agency That Serves Your Interest First Mark Williamson * AUTOMOBILE * FIRE * BONDS * HOME OWNERS * LIFE Allan E.

CNC) -- Lack where Bishop Topel often helped of vocations spelled the end for the Brothers of Charity of Spo- kane, established in 1963 by Bishop Bernard J. Topel of Spo- kane. Its beginnings were humble -- a group of members of the lay Third Order of St. Francis of Assisi who had run a hostel for homeless men in Minneapolis, ex homeless men in Minneapolis, established Spokane's House of Charity in 1958. Along with the main hostel, serve the traditional Thanks- giving dinner ofturkey-and-trlm- mings, the Brothers also assum- ed operation of a rehabilitation farm for alcoholics -- Mount St, Charles, which operated succes- sfully for two years. The decline in vocations was not the only problem faced by the Brothers' operation. The House of Charity had to be sold because it was "dead center" in Spokane's riverfront develop- ment program.
