(iii) Report on Deceased Members.
The Bishop of Nova Scotia reported, with deep regret, the passing on January 25th, 1960, of the Right Reverend William Charles White, retired Bishop of Honan, China, and the first Bishop of that Diocese. Consecrated in November 30th, 1909 in St. James' Cathedral, Toronto, Bishop White gave his life to the work of the Church overseas. Due to his zeal and perseverance, the way was opened for the consecration of a Chinese priest to succeed him and thereby an indigenous episcopate for the Chung Hwa Sheng Kung Hui was established.

Biographical Sketch
Isaac Stringer (1866-1934) was born in Kingarf, Township of Kincardine, Ont. He received a B.A., 1891 from University College, Toronto, and B.D. from Wycliffe College in 1892. He was ordained deacon in 1892, priest in 1893 and then stationed at Fort McPherson in Peel River from 1892-1897 as a Church Missionary Society (C.M.S.) missionary. In the summer of 1895, Stringer took a leave of absence for a year, returning to Ontario for deputation work and to marry Sarah Ann Alexander (Sadie), March 10, 1896. After graduation from high school, Sadie studied shorthand and later worked as a secretary in New York City. She received a diploma in nursing from Grace Hospital in Toronto and studied at the Toronto Anglican Women's Training School. After spending a year together at Fort McPherson, the Stringers moved to Herschel Island and lived there among the Eskimos from 1897-1901. Suffering acutely from eyestrain, Stringer took his family back to Ontario in the fall of 1901. In 1903, Bishop Bompas of the Diocese of Selkirk called him to serve as a C.C.C.S. (Colonial and Continental Church Society) missionary at Whitehorse, Yukon. Eventually, Stringer became Bompas' successor in the Diocese which changed its name to Yukon, Dec. 17, 1907, serving until 1931 when he became Archbishop of Rupert's Land. He died suddenly on Oct. 30, 1934 at Winnipeg.

Prologue
The Bishop of Ontario presented the revision of "Guidelines" which had been presented to the House at Augusta, 1968, but which had not been dealt with at that time. This revision of the Guidelines was printed as Appendix D to the Minutes of the 1968 Augusta meeting.
The Archbishop of Algoma also presented a report on behalf of a Committee appointed by the Primate to bring Lambeth Resolutions 40 and 41 before the House. This report was brought in while the House considered "Guidelines on Bishops" because its content was pertinent.
The report was as follows:
Resolution 40
In concurring with Resolution 40 (Lambeth Conference, 1968) the Committee appointed by the Primate, consisting of the Bishop of Moosonee, the Bishop of James' Bay and the Archbishop of Algoma, recommend that the Canadian House of Bishops adopt Resolution 40 (Lambeth Conference, 1968) and that the same be incorporated in the Minutes of this meeting.
For the implementation of this motion, the Committee would refer to Appendix D, Section VIII, Cl. (2) on page 31, 1968 Minutes -- (Guidelines for the use of Bishops) and further that Cl. (5) Section (e) be changed to make obligatory the appointment of an Assistant Bishop as ex officio member of the Executive.
Resolution 40: "The Conference affirms its opinion that all co-adjutor, suffragan, and full-time assistant bishops should exercise every kind of episcopal function and have their place as Bishops in the councils of the Church."
Resolution 41
The Committee recommend to the House of Bishops, the adoption of Resolution 41.
Resolution 41: "The Conference recommends that the bishops as leaders and representatives of a servant Church, should radically examine the honours paid to them in the course of divine worship, in titles and customary address, and in style of living, while having the necessary facilities for the efficient carry on of their work."
In its implementation, the Committee would suggest the dropping of diocesan signatures and meaningless titles, such as "My Lord".
