By MICHAEL ARKUSH
Some relatives of Plymouth Center
patients claim the recent investigation
into abuse charges at the institution has
proceeded "too slow and has a long way
to go."
A full scale investigation into the
Plymouth abuse charges was initiated
a few weeks ago by Governor Milliken,
who appointed a special seven member
task force to solve the Plymouth con-
troversy. The investigation, sparked by
reports from the Detroit Free Press
describing specific abuse cases, also
consists of three additional committees
established to propose recommen-

dations to improve the institution.
"EVERYTHING is going too slow.
Judge Joiner's order several weeks ago
gave the center ten days to reduce at-
tendant-reisent ratio to four-to-one and
Mrs. Provitt (acting director of
Plymouth) has not complied," said
Robert Sampson, parent of a Plymouth
resident.
"It's a very bad situation there and
the investigation can't do it all at once.
You have to trace the facts and there
are a lot of facts," said Barbara Moore,
a parent of a Plymouth resident.
Moore also said she believed Provitt
is accomplishing as much as possible

considering the tremendous difficulties
she assumed when she took office.
"I THINK she's very thorough. When
she says something, she does it," said
Moore.
Sampson said he strongly believes
Governor Milliken was involved in a
cover-up of the Plymouth abuse
charges and has only proceeded in the
investigation when the charges became
public.
"I definitely believe Milliken was in-
volved. He had to know what was hap-
pening to these children and he turned
his head on the abuses until it became a
campaign issue," said Sampson.

UNIVERSITY President Robben
Fleming said last night that he was not
familiar with the MSU resolution. In
response to a question, Fleming said
that he didn't know if the University is
under constraints against divestiture

that MSU didn't have to consider, aside
from the fact that MSU's portfolio is
significantly smaller.
University Financial Vice-President
James Brinkerhoff said that he, too,
was not acquainted with the MSU

measure, but that "my counterpart up
there has received all of the infor-
mation about our decision."
Brinkerhoff said, "I know of nothing
uniquely different between (the
management of stocks at) the Univer-
sity of Michigan and Michigan State"
aside from the relative size.
When informed of the MSU decision,
Regent Deane Baker declined to com-
ment until he had seen the resolution
but said, "By and large institutions
make up their own minds about what
they're going to do in their own
situations."
Another Regent, David Laro (R-
Flint), said, "We wouldn't be directly
affected (by the MSU decision), but I
think it would be part of the information
we would look at." Laro continued: "Of
course it by no means controls what
we're doing. It's just interesting to
know what other people are doing."
None of the other six Regents, all
Democrats, were available for com-
ment.

"WHY DO THE HEATHEN RAGE?"
Psalms 2:1 and Acts 4:25

In the latter part of The Sermon on The Mount - Matthew
7:15 - Jesus Christ warned: Beware of false prophets," and
then shortly closes the sermon saying whosoever heareth
His sayings and doeth them is like a wise man who built his
house on a rock, and it stood in spite of all the storms that
beat upon it; but those who heard His sayings and failed to
take heed and obey were like a foolish man who built his
house on the sand, and the storms washed out the sand
foundation and the house fell: "AND GREAT WAS THE
FALL OF ITI"
The witness and testimony of this column is that
Genuine Protestantism builds on The Rock of Ages, accep-
ting by faith "every word that proceedeth out of the mouth
of God" revealed in the The Scriptures of the Old and New
Testaments, and strive and aim at perfect obedience. On
the contrary, the Modernists who reject God's Word, The.
Bible, wherever and whenever It don't measure up to the
scholarship and percepts of men, and the "wisdom of the
wise of this world," are building on the shifting sands that
can't stand the storms. Consider and compare the two
following quotations:
"If Modernism was a separate movement in itself, built its
own churches, launched its own institutions, projected its
own denominations, then we could look at it as just another
of the many sects that appear on the surface of history. But

"Genuine Protestantism does not consist only of the
doctrine of justification by Faith, and The Supreme
Authority of The Scriptures of the Old and New Tes-
taments, for It implies, as its name indicates, an energetic
protest, formulated in the name of these doctrines, against
ecclesiastical abuse of every kind."
Attention is called in the following to a number of Scrip-
tures that give a strong and important basis for formulating
an energetic protest against Modernism within the Protes-
tant Denominations: the devil began his work with man in
the Garden of Eden by deceiving. The Apostle Paul wrote
the Corinthian Christians, 2nd Cor., 11:13, "But I fear, lest
by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his sub-
tlety, so your minds should be corrupted from the sim-
plicity that is in Christ." As stated above, Christ warns in the
Sermon on the Mount aginst false prophets, wolves in
sheep's clothing, and elsewhere of "hirelings" that are not
true shepherds of the sheep. 2nd Cor., 11:13, etc., warns of
"false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming
themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for
Satan himself is also transformed into an angel of light.
Therefore, it is no great thing if his ministers #so be
transformed into ministers of righteousness."
God's Word calls on His people to make their calling and
election sure;" it warns that some "believe in vain;" Christ
said in the Sermon on the Mount there would be those who
