Electronic ministers offer TV salvation

WASHINGTON (AP)-Collectively,
they are known as the "electric chur-
ch," and by any measure their power
and-influence is growing.
To the chagrin of some established
religions, the ministers who use radic,
and television to preach their message
now claim a weekly audience of more
than 129 million.
They are using an estimated- $600
million worth of TV time alone this
year.
WHILE CRITICS complain the "elec-
tric ministers" undercut local church
attendance, the people behind such
shows as the "PTL Club" and the "Old
Time Gospel Hour" say they are ser-
ving both churchgoers and people who
feel uncomfortable with established
Last week, most of the nation's
Christian broadcasters-predominan-
tly fundamentalist Christians-met in
Washington to discuss not only their
message, but how it should be presen-
ted to America as well.
"Television is the most effective
medium for reaching the most people,"
Jerry Falwell of the "Old Time Gospel
Hour" told the National Religious
Broadcasters.
He heard little disagreement from
the more than 2,000 delegates.
EVEN PRESIDENT Carter, who ad-

dressed the group one night, took
special note of their growing influence.
"A television station or the Oval Of-
fice is a powerful podium," the
president said. "Our influence as in-
dividuals can be greatly magnified-.. .
Even more than those in commercial
broadcasting, you must take the time,
pay the price, to give ...the, true
message."
Use of the airwaves for religion is
nothing new; last week's meeting was
the 37th annual convention of the
National Religious Broadcasters.

But the evangelical broaccasters
meeting here think'the 1980s, through
the sophisticated use of TV and satellite
technology, will offer "a new potential
for reaching the world with the Good
News of Jesus Christ," as Ben Ar-
mstrong, executive director of the
group, put it.
THE STATISTICS bolster that view.
Of the more than 8,700 radio stations
in America, 1,400 are now religious. Of
the roughly 1,000 commercial and
educationalTV stations, at least 30 are
religious, as are 66 of the nation's cable
TV operations.

Police storm embassy in Guatemala,

A radio station is considered
"religious" if it devotes eight or more
hours a week to religious program-
ming. For TV, the standard is one-third*
of the broadcast week plus one-third of
prime time.
By any account, Christian broad-
casting has become one of the fastest
growing sectors of electronic com-
munications.
"GOD GAVE television primarily for
the propagation of the Gospel," said
Falwell.

GUATEMALA CITY (UPI) - At
least 20 people died yesterday as police
stormed the Spanish Embassy to try to
free the Spanish ambassador and five
others taken hostage by peasants.
Witnesses said most of the victims
died in a fire that broke out during the
police raid.
THE RED CROSS said Spanish Am-
bassador Maximo Cajao Lopez, former
Guatemalan Vice President Eduardo
Caceras and former Guatemalan

Foreign Minister Adolfo Molina Oran-
tes were injured in the raid. They were
rushed to a hospital where a report on
their conditions was not available im-
mediately.
A Red Cross spokeswoman estimated
that she saw at least 20 bodies during a
brief visit to the still-smouldering, two-
story building in a residential section of
Guatemala City.
She said most of the victims died in
the blaze, which apparently was started
by a gasoline bomb thrown by one of the

about 40 peasants who had taken the
hostages earlier in the day.
POLICE FIRED tear gas but no gun-
shots as they stormed the building, the
Red Cross said.
The blaze trapped most of the victimso
inside the second floor of the embassy,
the Red Cross said.
Authoritiesspoked through the
blackened rubble and lined up the
bodies, side by side, in one first floor
room, witnesses said.

ministration's outlook for the economy.
WHite House press secretary Jody
Powell said, "I'm not in a position to
make a definitive comment on this."
The firm consented to a court injun-
ction to disclose any future payments to
foreign officials, as well as money spent
for such things as entertainment of
Pentagon personnel.
THE SEC began its investigation in
February 1978, when information was
disclosed by a congressional committee
that a Textron subsidiary, Bell Helicop-

ter, made $2.95 million in questionable
payments to help secure a contract to
sell helicopters to the Iranian gover-
nment in 1973.
The SEC said the $2.95 million went to
Air Taxi Co., the sales agent in Iran for
Bell Helicopter.
"During this period, Gen. Moham-
med Khatemi, commander-in-chief of
the Iranian Air Force, had a financial
interest in Air Taxi, and in fact,
received at least $500,000 of the $2.95
million paid to Air Taxi," the agency

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 1
(Blake Edwards, 1964) PINK PANTHER 7:OO-MLS4
PETER SELLERS in his best known role as the bumbling French Inspector
Clouseau. Sellers 'creates the definitive casebook of pratfalls, tumbles,
ineptitude and outrageous sight gags-oil the while maintaining Clouseau's
impeccable air of supreme self-confidence. The high voltage cast includes
ROBERT WAGNER, DAVID NIVEN as the suave jewel thief, 'and CLAUDIA,
CARDINALE as the beautiful Oriental princess. Riotously funny!
(Blake Edwards, 1964) A SHOT IN THE DARK 9:OO-ML1B4
SELLERS returns trjumphant as the bumbling Clouseau in this free-wheeling
and hysterically funny sequel to Pink Panther. Here, Sellers has a double
murder mystery on his hands-as well as the beautiful ELKE SOMMER, play-
ing a French maid accused of murdering her Spanish lover. She is apparently
the-only one in the chateau who didn't. If you think that's confusing, wait until
you hear Clouseau explain it!

said, adding:
"Textron-Bell knew or had reason to
know of Khatemi's interest in Air Taxi,
through one or more of its senior of-
ficials, although those persons respon-
s ble for negotiating the payment to Air
Taxi deny having any knowledge or
belief of such interest."
Khatemi, killed in a 1975 hang gliding
accident, was a brother-in-law of the
Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, 'nowa.
living in exile in Panama.
