O'Donnell has distinguished himself by meritorious service and unselfish devotion as managing editor of The Guardian, official publication of the Diocese of Little Rock, for the past twenty years. During those years, by giving of himself and working for the Church he so loves, he has brought the truth and light to countless souls. The fact that the Diocese of Little Rock has a paper must be attributed to his zeal and driving energy. Where others failed, he succeeded. His resources for publishing a paper have been meager, but they have been outweighed by his determination and devotion to duty. It is an honor for the Diocese of Little Rock to present to "Bill" this Service Award for outstanding work. May your successes continue and may God bless you for years to come.  controversy.

"Definitely Rockefeller," she said. Her comment indicated a stronger pro-abortion position than she has voiced in the past. Last year, she said she favored abortion in certain cir- cumstances, such as for unwed teenagers. She recently told an interviewer that, despite negative reaction to that remark, "I couldn't lie. That's the way I feel." But Mrs. Ford's press secretary, Helen McCain Smith, said later that Mrs. Ford op- poses abortion on demand. The First Lady, she said, believes in therapeutic abortion in cases of rape and incest. President Ford's press secretary, Jerald ter Horst, said Ford shares his wife's view that abortion must be available as a : remedy.: when the mother is seriously ill or has been at- tacked. The press secretary added that the President still favors efforts to obtain a constitutional amendment allowing the states to regulate abortions. In identifying herself with Rockefeller on the abortion issue, Mrs. Ford left herself open to criticism from right-to- life groups which have opposed Rockefeller's nomination because of his abortion record. Rockefeller signed New .York's liberalized abortion law, allowing abortion on demand up to the PAth week of pregnancy, in 1970. Later, he vetoed a repeal of the bill by the state legislature. Buckler, in an effort to overturn the Jan. 22, 1973 Supreme Court ruling removing .most restrictions on abo.rtion, has sponsored a constitutional amendment which W0uld prohibit abertton except when needed' to save the life of the mother. Msgr. McHugh said Mrs. Ford's comment was a "good ARTHUR B. SLUYTER Tulsa, Okla. - The funeral of Arthur B. Sluyter, 61, formerly of Little Rock, Ark., was con- ducted here Sept 3. He was a retired employee of the U.S. Engineers. He died Aug. 31 here. Survivors include his wife, Sue Cobb Sluyter; a son, four daughters and seven grand- children; his mother, Mrs. CG. Sluyter, Sr. of Little Rock; two brothers, C.G. Sluyter, Jr., of Little Rock and Vick A. Sluyter of Harlingen, Texas; and five sisters, Sister Mary Lucille Sluyter, R.SM., Mrs. Frances Yaniger and Mrs. Mary G Zakrzewski, all of Little Rock, Mrs. Mary Lou Lueken of Helena and Mrs. Emma Lou Johnston of Gadsden, Ala. Spanish Mass Scheduled Sept. 22 N. Little Rock - A Spanish Mass in honor of Our Lady of Guadalupe to celebrate the Independence of Mexico will be offered Sunday,. Sept 22, at 5 P.M. in Immaculate Conception Church, 7000 John F. Kennedy Boulevard here. A covered dish dinner will be served in the parish school cafeteria after the Mass. The Spanish Club of Northeast High School will entertain with a pageant on the independence of Mexico. I reminder that people can't rely on the stand or silence of any one political figure, but must raise the question of the whole gamut of pro-life issues." Commenting on another issue causing controversy among Catholics, Mrs. Ford said both she and her husband supported passage of the Equal Rights Amendment. The National Council of Catholic Laity has opposed the amendment. * NEW & REBUILT VACUUMS * KIRBY REPMI & SERVICE 00DRINK MEMBER FDIC k mlimd I00nk of leel BENDER MACHINE SHOP Motor Rebuilding Crankshaft Grinding Automotive Parts 1018 Wheeler - 782-1630 FORT SMITH, ARK. i Red Cedar Shakes and Wood Shingles P E T I T J EA LUMBER & SUPPLY CO. 783-8905 ,zoo so00T, , FORT SMITH I ARKANSA
