Catholics in Congress Set Record Washington (NC) - Catholic representation in Congress is at an all-time high following the November elections, according to Christianity Today, an evangelical Protestant weekly. The number of Catholics in Congress was raised by eight to a total of 123, the magazine said. Jewish representation in- creased by 10 to 24, the magazine said: "Records over the years indicate that Catholics and Jews benefit in a Democratic year while Presbyterians take it on the chin." Presbyterian representation dropped by 13 this year. The figures were announced in Christianity Today's chaplain at Drexel University in Philadelphia. Four ordained clergymen were re-elected -- The Rev. Andrew Young of Georgia, a Democrat (United Church of Christ), the Rev. John Buchanan of Alabama, a Republican (Southern Baptist), the Rev. Walter Fauntroy, Democratic delegate of Washington, D.C. (Progressive National Baptist) and Jesuit Father Robert Drinan (D- Mass.). The only clergyman defeated for re-election was Indianapolis Republican, the Rev. William H. Hudnut, a United Presbyterian pastor. The census was taken by Christianity Today researchers who placed telephone calls to winners right after the election trying to find out their religious affiliation.

Maus, has announced that bids for con- struction will be taken by the end of December. The plans call for a brick and tile edifice 91 feet long and 31 feet wide with a seating capacity of approximately 200. The new church was made possible by an $8,000 grant given by the Catholic Church Extension Society and funds from the estate of the widow of John Gaugherty. The property, for the proposed structure, a block adjoining St. Mary's Hospital, was donated in 1938 by non-Catholics of Russellville who raised $1,800 for its pur- chase. North Little Rock, Ark.
