"Some people supported Lebed and some people sup- ported Yeltsin, but nobody seemed to support Zyuganov," said Father Philip Andrews, an Irishman who leads a congre- gation of mostly ethnic Poles and Germans. Father Andrews noted that even elderly parishioners who belonged to the generation that most strongly supported Zyuganov in Russia appeared to avoid the Communist candi- date. "The older people tended to go for Lebed," he said. In the week prior to the elec- tion, Archbishop Theodore E. McCarrick of Newark, N.J., ar- rived in Moscow with a group of U.S. religious leaders to ob- serve the campaign process and meet the candidates and their staffs. Most of the delegation, underwritten by the ecumeni- cal, U.S.-based Appeal of Con- science Foundation, departed before the election.

"A reader called from Ann Arbor, Michi- gan, and said her mother had 17 afghans ready which had never been used. I told her to go ahead and ship them to Wausau." Creel heard from knitters and crocheters from all over the Diocese of Evansville, in- cluding from the towns of Washington, Jasper, New Har- mony and Newburgh. When she heard from Mary Silver, she immediately took yarn over to the woman's home. A week later Silver had finished 49 squares, enough for one complete afghan. "I just really enjoy crochet- ing," Silver said. "I live alone and have the whole evening to myself." - " - For additional information, write Marjorie Creel, 2810 Turnberry Lane, Evansville In 47711-6715, or call her at (812)474-1573.

He added that one of the group's purposes was to be a "reminder that the world is watching." In meetings with Zyuganov and staffers from the Lebed and Yeltsin camps, Archbishop McCarrick said he was encour- aged to see that "they are all at least paying lip sei'vice to the idea of religious freedom. They are now on record as saying this. Can you hold them to their record? You can't even do that in the U.S." The delegation, which in- eluded Jewish, Armenian and American Orthodox leaders, also met Patriarch Alexei II, the head of the Russian Ortho- dox Church, whom Archbishop McCarrick said was receptive and cooperative. Like top Catholic clerics in Russia, Patriarch Alexei en- dorsed none of the presidential candidates. He did, however, make several pre-election statements urging Orthodox voters not to support a return to the past -- a thinly veiled entreaty to not support the Communists, who in their So- viet form, oversaw the murder of tens of thousands of priests and the near annihilation of the Russian church. With Catholicism a distinct religious minority in Russia, Archbishop McCarrick and other leaders said they were concerned with proposed legis- lation currently being consid- ered by a committee of the Rus- sian Duma (parliament) which could curtail the activities of so-called nontraditional reli- gions, including Catholicism. "The (Roman Catholic) Church here, realizing its mi- nority position, has to be very prudent about what it says," said Archbishop McCarrick. "This is not to say the Catholic Church may not have to raise its voice if something were to threaten its right to exist or if its moral teachings had to be defended."
