Bomb threats plague
San Marcos schools
SAN MARCOS, Texas (AP) — A
series of eight telephoned bomb threats,
apparently from students, prompted
administrators at San Marcos High
School to issue a threat of their own.
Superintendent John Fuller said
Tuesday officials arc considering
scheduling classes on Saturdays to make
up for lost school time.
In addition to eight bomb threats at
the high school, there have been three
telephoned bomb threats at Owen
Goodnight Jr. High School.
Fuller and San Marcos Police Cpt.
Bruce Koch said they believe the calls
are coming from students engaged in
“copy cat” thrill-seeking.
Some of the calls were judged serious
enough by school officials to warrant
an evacuation of the schools for up to
three hours, Fuller said.

JERUSALEM (AP) — Palestinians

car in the occupied Gaza Strip Wednes-
day, and in the West Bank town of
Nablus, Israeli soldiers blew up or sealed
nine houses of suspected activists.
Nablus, a city of 120,000 was under
army-imposed curfew for the sixth
straight day Wednesday following a
bloody clash last week in which troops
shot and killed four people and wounded
21. Residents said they were running
short of food.
No injuries were reported ir, the gre-

Female priest finds ministry fulfilling

“Some people have a problem
calling me ‘mother.’ If that happens I
tell the person that the bishop didn’t
take away my first name when he laid
hands on me,” she said.
McKee encourages women who are
interested in entering the priesthood to
pursue their goals. She said becoming
a priest is difficult and opposition can
strike unexpectedly, but being involved
in the ministry is fulfilling.
“You also have to be ready to be a
role model, for women especially. You
can be a role model for any woman in
any field,” McKee said.
McKee was in Michigan for the Epis-
copal General Convention, which met
in July. Nine hundred deputies and 200
bishops attended the convention.
“'l’here is a question in the Episcopal
General Convention about how to handle
the possibility of a woman as a bishop.
It has not happened yet,” she said,
“but it is going to happen.”
A primary goal of the ministry is to
provide a place for students and faculty
to worship on campus, she said. Com-
munion is taken at noon every Thursday
in the University Ministries Center at
Maple and Avenue B.
The communion is followed by lunch
with the Methodist student group. These
luncheons begin at 12:30 p.m Thursday
