"Why are you fearful, 0 ye of little Faith. H St. Matthew 8 :26 Beloved in Christ, The words above were spoken by Our Lord to the Apostles; They also apply to us here~ Like the Twelve, we are caught in the sea of uncertainty, fearful for our way of life, and indeed, fearful for our lives. But. the path to safety for us as well as the first followers of Christ remains the same. We must be strong in Faith. We must prove what we profess by the way we think and act. "This ig the victory that overcomes the world, your Faith." (1st St. John 5 :4) Proof for this rule is readily had. Holy writ endorses it: "As a man thinks himself in his heart, so is he. History supports it in the record of great deeds and conquests made by people that believed. in their destiny. But no more than the record of Christianity need be cited to show that heights were reached by men and women who lived by faith, and that failure inevitably came to those whose faith in God wavered or stayed' weak.

Padre Pio· 'Meeting" Impressive Stigmatized Monk· Radiates Love, Obedience By' Rev. It was a quiet September morning in the year 1918. In the choir of the monastery chapel in the poverty-stricken Italian town of San Giovanni Rotondo a young, beared Francisoan monk knelt in prayer. Suddenly a cry of pain shattered the silence and the priest fell to the ground. Moments later his fellow-monks found him there, prostate before a crucifix, with strange bleeding wounds in his hands and feet and side. For Padre Pio the hidden life of a monk had abruptly ended; he had been swept into history as one of the few men to bear on ,his body the bleeding wounds of Christ, the Stigmata. I have just returned from a trIp to San Giovanni Rotondo. 'Ilhere I met Padre Pio, saw him say Mass, and listen,ed to the many stories that are told about him. This brief account is by way of sharing that 'experience with you.

Catholic Church has taken no official stand on the stigmata of Padre Pio, nor of the miracles 'attributed to him, nor on his reputed bi-Iooations (being several places at the same time). The attitude of the Church has rather been one of caution, a " let's-wait-and-see " approach. Because of the sometimes-excessive enthusiasm of the followers of Padre. Pio, the Holy See has several times curbed his activities. His obedience in each of these instances was quick and complete. We rose at four o'clock in the morning in order to attend his Mass. It lasted one hour.

"In America we see that parents in increasing numbers are being forced to surrender the control of their children's education," he said. "The cost of education has increased more than 700 per cent since 1940.

. Lenten Regulations for Fast and Abstinence

FROM ASH WEDNESDAY TO HOLY SATURDAY MIDNIG'HT, 1962

To foster the spirit of penance and of reparation for sin, to encourage self-denial and mortification and to guide her children in the footsteps of Our Divine Savior, Holy Mother Church imposes by law the observance of fast and '. abstinence. . I According to the provisions of Canon Law, as modified through the use of special faculties granted by the Holy See, we herewith publish the following regulations:

ON FAST Everyone over 21 and under 59 years of age is bound

to observe the law of fast. The weekdays of Lent are days of fast. On these days only one full meal is allowed. Two other meatless meals, sufficient to maintain strength, may be taken according to one's need; but together they should not equal another full meal. Meat may be taken at the principal meal on a day of fast except Fridays and Ash Wednesday. Eating between meals is not permitted; but liquids, including milk and fruit juices, are allo'Yed.. When health and ability to work would be seriously affected, the law does not oblige. In doubt concerning fast or abstinence a parish priest or confessor should be consulted.

CY(Q) Everyone over seven years of age is bound to observe the law of abstinence. be observed on Fridays Complete abstinence is and Ash Wednesday. On days of complete abstinence meat and soup or gravy made from meat may not be used at all. Partial abstinence is to be 'observed on Ember Wednesday and Saturday and Holy Saturday. On days of partial abstinence meat and soup or gravy made from meat may be taken ONCE a day at the principal meal. We earnestly exhort the faithful during the Holy Season of Lent to attend daily Mass; to receive Holy Communion often; to take part more frequently in exercises of . piety; to give generously to works of religion and charity; to perform acts of kindness toward. the sick, the aged and the poor; to practice voluntary self-denial especially regarding alcoholic drink and worldly amusements; and to . pray more fervently, particularly for the intentions of the Holy Father. Obligation to fulfill the Easter duty may. be satisfied from Sunday, March 11, the First Sunday of Lent, until June 17, Trinity Sunday. P.S.-In virtue of faculties granted by the Holy See,' the Bishop dispenses from the Laws of Fast and Abstinence on March 17th.

Our faith if!' puny; it is too littl~. It has Dot gro~ strong through frequent exercise. Too often it is calettlating. It comes forward chiefly in times of distress whea we ask the ~rd to alleviate some pain or ·sorrow. We look. for immediate rewards, for ouselves. We aN not too concerned with conformity to God's Holy Will. W. need to grow; And grow we will once we seriously beg for an increase of faith. This was the prayer of the Apostleu "Lord i~crease our faith, Lord teach us to pray." Such should be our sentiments too if we are to spend profitably the holy season of Lent. We have much to pray for. Our Holy Father begs us to "intensify our prayera for the happy success of the coming Ecumenical Council.We must be constant in our quest for peace for all huma:akind. A spirit of thanks could prompt us to profit by aD the spiritual aids we. have, in the sacraments. We should frequent. them growing strong by the grace, the spiritual energy that derives from them. Faith finds expression in seeking the company of Christ. It follows Him meditatively along His sorrowful way. It communes with Him through frequent aspirations. It imitates Him in the love we show . our neighbor in need. Finally, if our faith is to grow, it must prompt us to works, of self-sacrifice. Lent cannot be Lent, unless it be a season of'penance. Prayer and penance have always been the theme of Lent. But the best prayer is that which comes from a contrite heart. It· should not be necessary to spell out what should be done~ A lot depends on the age and physical condition of the Christian soul. But something should be. done, som&thing that stands for sacrifice. It could be dancing. Some people might say they'd hate themselves for giving it up. They should hate themselves if they don't. Definitely~ no Parish Halls, or Youth Centers may have dancing in tlwl Holy Season. In other matters too, we should show restraint. TheN are many such which I mention in the hope of winning some one .or other to a definite resolve to discipline himself.. Could we not get free from the domination of tobacca, or T. V.? Should we not fast between meals? Is it not possible to forego the theatre and movies? ]s there no selfish, quarrelsome habit for us to overcome ?Could we noS put aside, as alms, monies, we would ordinarily spend 011 luxuries? . . In any case, if our faith is to grow strong, we must do works of penance, and Lent is the time for this. Let U8 not th~n drift through this ~eason, but use it rather for a nearer approach to God. So doing we will Qepefit by the s<:>lemn Liturgy and find ourselves, with Christ rising to a better life. Faithfully yours in Christ,

The result was "Family Theater" headliriing the biggest names in the entertainment industry. . Now with no one having to knock, Hollywood began its second great response to Father Peyton. It began with a lunche'on at the Beverly Wilshire on a rainy afternoon. But the mist didn't dull the glitter. , Present were most of the 32 stars who first responded to Father Peyton, plus many more. Father Peyton himself? I:Ie was in the Philippines preaching the Family Rosary. All-Star ProductIon . Luncheon hostesses ,were Irene Dunne, Louella Parsons and Loretta Young. Each described her own first meeting with Fathel' Peyton and then told of Hollywood's plan for a 20th anniversary response to his appeal to Hollywood for help. It will be an all-star production titled "A Testimonial Dinner for Father Patrick Peyton," Tuesday, May 15, in the Beverly Hilton's International Room. Chairman Jack Haley has described it as not a testimonial "to a man who needs no recognition" but as a benefit to help further the Family Rosary Crusade. Guests are expected from aU parts of the U. S.

Enthrone Prelate, At St. Paul ST. PAUL (NC)-Archbishop Leo Binz was enthroned as the fifth Atchbishop of St. Paul in colorIul ceremonies in the St. Paul cathedral here yesterday. The 61-year-old former Archbishop of Dubuque, Iowa, succeeds Archbishop William O. Brady, Fall River native, who died in Rome Oct. 1, 1961. Archbishop Binz now has spiritual jurisdiction over some ~57,­ 000 Catholics in the archdiocese. Archbishop Egidio Vagnozzi, Apostolic Delegate in the United States, officiated at installation lIites. ' , Ceremony on TV The televised' ceremony brought together the largest gathering of the hierarchy in the upper midwest since the 194~ Eucharistic Congress in St. Paul. Crowding the huge cathedral were 14 archbishops, 66 bishops and six abbots, and an estimated 665 members of the clergy, 175 Brothers and Sisters, 300 high school and college student representatives, government and civic leaders and lay people.

Tithing to Aid Fund Program HAMILTON (NC)-Tithing is

to be introduced in the Diocese of Hamilton to replace periodic building fund campaigns. Immediate plans call for building of four churches at a total ClOst of $1,000,000. A study of the tithing system conducted here for several months indicates that many persons already are carrying it out. Under the tithing program, five per cent of a member's net income will go to the church and five per cent to cbarities of his choice. "Tithing is a practical, appropriate way for the people to return to God some of the gifts He has abundantly bestQwed Oft them," said Bishop J. F. Ryan of Hamilton.

cloth that does not irritate the mark of the nail. In meeting Padre Pio, how-. ever, the characteristic that o:l!fers the biggest surprise is, I, believe, his sense of humor. (Once when asked why he became a Capuchin, he answered, " Because I liked bearded . mo'nks!") Padre Pio put us completely at ease as he conversed with us· about Americans and Roman students. He was the soul of kindness. After several moments of conversation we kissed his stigmatized hand and asked his blessing. This he read. ily gave, prefacing it with the· hope that "we might be blessed and saints." Before parting we asked to be remembered in his prayers. He shot back, "Yes, those who study Canon Law need a lot· of prayers!" Our encounter lasted no more than four minutes, but it left behind a lasting impression. During our three days at 8t. Giovanni Rotondo we heard enough stories about Padre Pio to fill a book. Many of them seemed like the emotional concoctions of overly-pious people; others were well-documented and quite capable of belief. But the over-all impression that we took away with us was not an overpowering awe for a. man who bleeds from the wounds of Christ, a man who is said to be a reader of thoughts and a worker of miracles (some of these may be explained naturally!) but rather a deep admiration for a very kind man who bears a heavy' cross with' obedience and love. o The stigmata is not necessarily' a mark of holiness. Most saints, the Blessed Mother. herself, never had it. But there is one' mark of holiness with which every saint must be stamped, that of which St. Paul said, "Be always eager to have the gift that is more precious than al1' the others." That gift, of course, is LOVE. Padre Pio has this in an eminent degree. And in this, I· believe, he is more stamped in the image of his Master than by the fact that he bears His bleeding wounds. . Few there are who can suffer with Christ in his bodily passioJll -but every man is called to live the life of Christ in hie soul, "The gift that is more precioU6 than all the others." This is the answer to the riddle of Padre Pio tha't I brought back.

Public Schoolmen Oppose Private School Aid ATLANTIC CITY (NC)'I' h e influential American Association of School Administrators has reaffirmed its stand against Federal aid to pal'Ochial and other private 8Chools. The reaffirmation by the association of public school officials eame in a convention resolution which favored Federal assistance of $8 billion year for public schools. The AASA's proposal-making the largest request yet for U.S. aid to public schools-calls iior Fe,leral grants to the states of $200 for each public school pupil from kindergarten through publicly supported junior colleges. States could use the' funds fJor any purpose.

a

'l'radlional Stand In regard to the nation's private schools" the division of the National Education Association stated: "Feder,al final)cial support of public education should follow the principle of restricting the use of public tax moneys to publicly controlled and supported schools." This has been the association's tmditional stand and was stressed here earlier in a press conference by the AASA's retiring president, Benjamin C. Willis, Chicago public school superintendent. Fewer than 500 of the association's 9,000 voU~g delegates were present when the resolution, distributed in advance, came up fur • vote. '

ProJl)Osld 'Unreallstie' The vast Federal support proposed was criticized as unrealistic by Abraham Ribicoff, Secrectary of the U.S. Department of Health, Education and Wel:tlare who attempted unsuccessfully to get congressional approval last year of Federal aid iior public grade and high schools. "We are having so much trouble putting through a relatively modest program that I think we are even further away from an $8 billion program," he told newsman. The bill Ribicoff backed would cost about $2.5 billion in three years.

By Patricia McGowan

"When thou dost alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doth, that thy alms maybe in secret: and thy F~lf'her who seeth in secret will repay thee." These Gospel words are taken seriously by school children of the Fall River Diocese. Last Fall, after Hurricane Hattie devastated British Honduras~ students of Diocesan parochial and high schools staffed by the Sisters of Mercy rallied to r-;"T"~-"'-"'--,,.. .-,'-,r' " ""J:'h~--,~ the cause of fellow students at St. Catherine's Academy, Belize, also a Mercy school. Quietly they have been gathering food, clothing and medicine, shipping theI.l to British Honduras Only when a letter of gratitude from Sister M. Joycelin, R.S.M., principal of the Belize school, reached The Anchor, was anyone but the students and Sisters involved aware of what had been done. 'Not Us' First action of The Anchor staH was to call Msgr. Raymond T. Considine of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith, ask him about the Belize project. "Not us," he said. "The Society sent a donation, but not food or other material aid." Next call was .0 Sister M. Olga, superior at Mt. St. Mary Convent, Fall River. "Oh, yes," she said. "Girls at Mt. St. Mary Academy contacted doctors in the Fall River area for drug samples and pupils in parochial schools collected food and clothing. We have already sent much to Belize, are still preparing shipments of more donations." What she didn't say, but what Sister Joycelin gratefully recorded was that literally hun-' dreds of children and adults in British 'Honduras have been aided by the generosity of youngsters of the Fall River Diocese. "We cannot possibly reach all these children," wrote Sister Joycelin, "but we would like them to know that we are grate'ful for their charity." She enclosed an open letter to the children from Amalia Blanco, a student at St. Catherine's. "Dear Friends," wrote Amalia. "When I extendr.eartfelt gratitude to you in this letter, I am voicing the sentimetnts of all the British Hondurans, and particularly the girls of St; Catherine' Academy, who have benefited greatly from your very kind and generous shipm'ents of food, clothing and medicine to Belize after Hurrican Hattie.

CLEVELAND (NC)-Fr. John F. Cronin, S.S., assistant director of the Department of Social Action, National Catholic Welfare Conference, says the controversial John Birch Society is "more' effectively subversive" than the communists. "If the policies of the John Birch Society were strictly followed," Father Cronin said, "the whole world-including the U. S. - would fall to communists within 20 years. He emphasized that under the Birch policy in foreign aid, Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America would be handed over to the communists and America c~uld not survive by itself. The U. S., he said, would be strangled economically, if not politically.

"In the crucial period of our extreme disaster, when we needed help most, you helped us. When we were hungry and thirsty, you gave us to eat and drink and when we had lost our clothing you clothed us. We can not offer you material gifts in return, but we can and do offer you spiritual ones, our prayers, asking God to guide and protect you always.

"We know that you did not give entirely of your abundance. We know that you made real sacrifices for us.

How could we have begun to work, to forget the terrible past, to face the future? , "Again, thank you from the depths of our hearts. May God bless you, all!"

REGENSBURG (NC)-Thomas Cardinal Tien, S.V.D., Archbishop of Peking, reported here in Germany that he has information that Catholic churches in his See city, from which he has been exiled by the Chinese Reds, are still well attended. But the Cardinal warned that "if the communists remain in power, in 40 years there will be no priests in mainland China." Cardinal Tien was here to visit Regensburg's center for recruiting priests for Formosa. He is now Apostolic Administrator of the Taipei archdiocese on that island.

By Audrey Palm Riker "Mama, what are the Grady's children's names?" "Flop~ sie, Mopsie and Cottontail," answers Mama, smiling. The peals of childish laughter that follow the painfully modest pun are worthy of Red Skelton's finest efforts. Children have a built-in laugh mechanism a rich fund of wh'm- . They like to show anger in their , . 1 humor-they think it hilarious sy and JOy. Parents can tap to threaten a parent with a ihis abundant natural re- poised club or a clenched fist. source to help relax the inevitable tensions that build in fam_ Uy life and to D u r t u rea health:- sense of humor in their offspring. Laughter appears early in life. By four weeks most babies can- smile.

Thurs.. Mar. 1, 1962

Members of the Regional Newman Club of Providence and Fall River are observing this week as Cardinal Newman Week. The week was proclaimed by Governor Notte of Rhode Island for the purpose of emphasizing the significance of Newman's works for the 20th century and encouraging participation in Newman Club activity. Observance included a Communion dinner which followed a Mass at St. Sebastian Church, Providence, attended by representatives of eight area colleges and universities, inclUding Bradford Durfee College of Technology, Fall River and New Bedford Institute of Technology.

Many adults wince at the gross, primitive humor of young children, but just as it takes time for a child to -appreciate good music or art, it takes time and maturity for him to learn the subtle nuances that adults find amusing. Laughter Therapeutic Meanwhile, laughter is a priceless technique in rearing children. Parents who use a light touch can quickly clear the air after a blow-up or necessary scolding. For example, use wholesome banter to ease the strain on a youngster who demands too much of himself. Or, with good nature, let the one who exag-' gerates the truth know he isn't fooling you. Laughter is a therapeutic tool. But it can alse;» be used to belittle or deride a child. You've probably seen - the bubbling,' good spirits of a youngster cruelly squelched by an adult, who is simply indifferent or so absorbed in his own troubles that he can't make the effort to laugh with a child. And some adults think it' humorous to ridicule a child's earnest effort to pronounce a word correctly or master a diUicult job. To develop a healthy personality, children need a full measure of giggles and guffaws. When parents and children can laugh together, age lines melt and a warm common' pleasure fOnDS a bond of communication and understanding between geoerations.

Family to Serve As MissDoners In Alaska'

11

LEBANON (NC)-James M. Crane, his wife and their 10 children are ,giving up a comfortable life on their 103acre farm here to serve as lay missionaries in Alaska: The family, scheduled to leave in June, will be ~urnished shelter at the Copper Valley Mission in southeast Alaska, but will serve without pay and have to purcbase all their food and clothing. Why are they exchanging' comfort for hardship? "We've been blessed so much, we figure we owe sO!'llething back," said James Crane, a builqing contractor. Mrs. Crane said: "For many years Jim and I have contemplated missionary work but 15 babies arrived, (10 of whom are l'iving), so our zeal for the work dimmed until 1960. 'In Debt to Heaven' "In May, 1960, we lost our 15th child . . . and only a strong constitution, along with' many prayers, kept me ~lere. Jim and I feel deeply in debt to heaven for my recovery, and the fact that we have such a lovely group of youngsters and two boys aspiring for the Benedictine brotherhood at St. Meinrad (Seminary), Indiana." The Cranes will sell their farm and furniture, and will leave here with a pickup truck, a car, and a 45-foot house trailer pulled by a semitractor. Mr. and Mrs. Crane have no romantic illusions about life in Alaska. The entire family went to Alaska on a vacation in 1959 and they know the conditions under which they will have to live. At Copper Valley they will live in an abandoned chapel, about three miles from the mission, conducted by Jesuits. Their nearest water supply will be three miles away. They are committed to a twoyear stay in Alaska. Mrs. Crane said that her husband and the oldest son will help with church building projects while she and the other children will try by example to impress Indians and Eskimos with the Christian family way of life.

Northern',lreland'" Prelates Protest,' Seizure Bill

MANCHORThurs., .- Mar. 1", 1962 '

LONDON (NC) - Northern Ireland's Catholic Bishops have buttressed their public protest against a bill authorizing seizure of church lands by sending a delegation to the government here. Bishop Eugene O'Doherty of. Dromore and Auxiliary Bishop William Conway of Armagh, Ireland's primatial See, brought the fears of the Northern Irish Hierarchy before the Lord Chancellor, Lord Kilmuir. The Bishops told Lord Kilmuir that such a law would almost certainly be used by anti-Catholics in power in some parts of Northern Ireland to seize essential lands of the Church. They suggested safeguards. Extends Powers The Lord Chancellor, who wields power not only as speaker of the House of Lords but also as head of the judiciary and as a government minister, promised to weigh the objections of the Bishops. The legislation, called the Northern Ireland Bill, seeks among other things to extend the powers of Northern Ireland's semi-autonomous Parliament in acquiring by compulsory purchase land belonging to religious and educational bodies.

Stress Council's Intense Interest For Laymen MANILA (NC) ThE! coming ecumenical council is the concern of the humblest member of the Church, not alone the prelates who will participate in it, the Bishops of the Philippines told their people in a joint pastoral letter. "The fruits of the council will in general be in proportion to the efforts of the fathers and of the whole Catholic Church, clergy and laity," the Bishops said. . They added: "It is God's ordinary way of dealing with men, even in such highly spiritual activities as an ecumenical coun-' cil, to extend the assistance 0:2 His grace in answer to prayer. Have Personal Share "Here is the part that each Catholic must play in the council. Through his prayers he can sit with the fathers and influence the decisions to greater fruitfulness, for the glory of God, fol' the good of souls, and especially for the union of all men under the Kingship of Christ, with His vicar on earth, and within the fold of the Catholic Church." Noting the recent announcement by Pope John that the council is to open next Oct. 11, the Bishops stated that "the faithful should be intensely interested in the proceedings, ,problems and outcome of tho council."· They went on to say: "Thus one fruit of the councel will be an intensifying of the spiritual lives of Catholics, while they thus realize their own personal share in the council and are invited to more fervent prayers, livelier faith and l!l warmer zeal."

Labor Problems Demand Serious Th~ught By Msgr. George G. Higgins Director, NCWC Social Action Department

Professor Will Herberg, the Jewish scholar, mayor may not be the most profound student of the sociology of religion in the' United States, but surely he is one of the most provocative. Herberg deservedly enjoys the reputation of being able to see the feeling that "nothing" in 'the forest for the trees. The familiar ethics of social justice trees in this case are a con- equips us to understand and deal stantly growing mass of with this kind of problem." statistical material about organized religion in the United States.

THE ANCf-lC'~ -9iocese of Fall River-Thurs., Mar. " 1962

up to this reputation in an article published originally a year ago in the Christian Century and reprinted within recent weeks in II paperback symposium entitled "How My Mind Has Changed"a series of essays by 13 authors ' assessing tfi.e impact of the last decade on their lives and thought (Meridian Books, The World Publishing Company, New York $1.25) . New Approach In the course of this article Herberg comments briefly on the changing nature of the social problem in th~ United States and on the consequent need for a new approach to the social problem on the part of organized religion. Writing as one who in his salad days was a convinced Marxist but has long since abandoned every vestige of the Marxist philosophy, :Herberg says that nowhere has his mind changed more drastically in the past decade than in- his conviction as to what constitutes the social problem of today. He used to think that "the 'social problem, meant the 'economic problem~ or even more narrowly the 'labor problem.''' It took him a long time to realize, he says, that this notion is no longer valid, at least not for the United States, Britain and the Scandinavian countries. Defines Today's Problem Granted, he continues, that economic and labor problems are still with us ,and perhaps will always be, nevertheless he contends that "the crucial social problem of today would seem to Je no longer how to achieve a larger measure of, social justice in a competitive system, but rather how to achieve a greater degree of personal authenticity amid the massive pressures for conformity and mediocrity asserted by our increasingly other-directed culture." We are confronted today, he says, with a social problem which is radically different in kind from the social problem of earlier generations. The new"SQcial problem, he contends, is one of "the quality' of life, of the creative use of leisure and of the influence of prefabricated mass-culture in the century of the "common man.' " Impact 'of Automation Coupled with Herberg's conviction that this is the real social problem of our generation is his

Shows Newman ·Clubs Needed

BUFFALO (NC) - How much need is there for New'man Clubs at secular colleges? A survey taken here

The percentage was much higher among Catholic seniors in public high schools. A full 89 per cent of them planned to enter secular colleges. Results The survey was made last year by the Newman Club Directorateof the Buffalo diocese and its resuits recently relo"s",~ 1\ +"h.1 nl' 3,981 students responded to the

offers one answer. It shows that 51 per cent of local Catholic highschool seniors who planned to attend college hoped to enroll in non-Catholic . institutions. it

questionnaire. Of this number, 2,815 were from Catholic schoo18 and 1,166 from public schools. The study also showed that 61 per cent of the respondents from Catholic high schools intended to pursue higher studies. Newman Clubs provide a program of religious, intellectual and social activities for Catholics attending non-Catholic colleges.

Herberg is probably correct in saying that we are· confronted today with a radically new type of social problem. But in stressing the importance of this new problem he may be underestimating the continuing importance of economic and labor problems. It is entirely possible that economic and labor problems will be even more important in the future than they were in the recent past. Who can say with any certainty, for example, that we will succeed within the foreseeable future in solving .the eco. pro blems w h'IC h are a1 nomIC most certain to accompany the continued development of automation.

Use of Computers , . My own feeling is that we will not be able to solve these problems in time to avert a crisis unless we begin to take them more seriously than we seem to be doing at the present time. This opinion is shared by a number of ,writers whose qualifications in the field of economics and politi_ cal science ,are far superior to myown.' Mr. Donald, Michael, for example, formerly of the Brookings Institution and now DirectOr of Planning and Programs for the Peace Research Institute in Washington, warns in a recent monograph published by the Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions that the widespread use of computers and au-' tomation may create vast unemployment and social unrest which would seriously weaken the founoations of our free society. ("Cybernation: The Silent Conquest," Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions, -133 East 54th Street, New York 22, New York). Somber Warning Mr. Michael raises a number of ,searching questions about the possible. impact of automatiort. He doesn't pretend to have the answer to all of these questions, but surely he is correct in saying that "if we do not find the answers ... soon, we will have a population in the next 10 to 20 years more and more out of touch with national and international realities, ever more the victims of insecurity on the one hand and ennui on the other,and more and more mismatched' to the occupational needs of the day." This somber warning, in my jUdgment, is a salutary corrective to Herberg's tendency; in an otherwise excellent article, to underestimate the importance of economic and labor problems hi the foreseeable future.

ening financial situation" facing Catholic schools, a Catholic educator said here. This move or some other "radical" method of financing to broaden the base of support will have to be made, predicted Father Robert R. Mackey, S.M., president of Chaminade College. The Marianist, speaking to the Holy Name Society of Honolulu's Holy Family parish, said that "we must rethink our whole ap_ proach to Catholic education in order to maintain the required excellence in the face of a frightening financial situation." The primary sources of educational excellence, he said, are good libraries and qualified and dedicated instructors. "All other facilities are secondary," he said. But there is a hitch, he added. Can Catholic schools afford both assets, especially the increasing number of lay teachers? 'lIlIave to Merge' "We can learn something from business," he advised. "To continue to exist, Capital Airlines had to merge with United Airlines. The New York Central and Pennsylvania railroads are talking merger for the same reasons. "Without any doubt, we will have to merge in the future some of our parish schools and our institutions of higher learning to have an economical operation."

A popular Fall River youth who has had many awards and honors heaped upon him, Douglas "Doug" Mello, tops as both an athlete and a scholar, will be launching his collegiate baseball career very shortly when he· makes a bid for the second base position on the Boston College Freshman nine. To most Fall River contemporaries the 19-year-old infielder needs little introduction; A grad- . uate of Durfee High School last June, Doug holds the honor of being only the second student ever to be elected class president. in each of his four years at Durfee. Versatile Infielder· Doug, the son of MY. and Mrs. John C. Mello of 114'7 PJoesident Avenue, played the diamond sport aU four years at Durfee.. He played third base his- first three years with the 'Toppers but moved to the ~eystone sack in his senior' year. Including tourney games, Doug's batting average was up around the- '.300 . mark last season. A veteran baseballer, Doug first played for. organized teams' as a Little Leaguer at third base. Among his early honors was the time he emerged from a Little League All-Star tourney with· the top batting average. Doug moved on to Pony League baseball and was also in the Babe Ruth loop. He has played the -diamond .sport for teams at his parish, Holy Name Church, has seen American Legion baseball experience with. Fall River's Stafford Post, and last Summer was picked to play with the CYO. All-Stars in the CYO Suburban League. ExceUentStudent A right-handel', the 5-foot, 10inch. baseballer,. 'who. weighs a lean 156 pounds, .can· also hold his own in a basketball contest. Doug played the hoop sport in his Frosh year at Durfee but a host of other activities halted him fr~m further hardwood play.. He has seen. intramural basket-" ball action at Boston College where he has cap~ained his own . squad. Doug's SchOlastic achievements earned him the Father Donovan award, a four-year tuition scholarship to Boston College. In his Junior year at Durfee,. he won the Williams Book Award for being. outstanding in his c:1as&. On All-A List Othel' awards that ha~ CClme

Doug's way are the Elks Award for Leadership. He placed third in a State-wide contest and received a $200 bond after writing' a theme and compiling a notebook on the last five years of his life. Doug also won the Portuguese-American Loyalty Association award, the Durfee Boost_ ers award and a Durfee Alumni Scholarship. For three years at Durfee, Doug was on the All-A list, with marks of 90 or better. He was on the Principal's List in his senior year. Active CYOer Doug has served as president . of the Young Adults Club at the CYO' in Fan River and was president of the Youth for Kennedy Club when Presiden. Kennedy was running for office. For hobbies he lists all sports. Baseball is his favorite but golf is high on the list, and Dougwho belongs to the Green Valley Country Club - heads for the links whenever the opportunity arises. He has also t;Iken a liking to jazz, and has started a record collection. At BC, where Doug is a dormitory student, he is a member of the German Club, besides playing intramural basketball. Stiff Course Doug's subjects at the Jesuit college are English, German, math, philosophy, theology and geology. Due to his demanding studies he does not get home too often. Doug, who has a sister Cheryl, 13, tentatively plans to major in government and minor in history. While not completely decided on a career after college,

he is thinking seriously aboIN being a lawyer, or possibly a diploma,t. With all his activities, Doug has found time for Summer jobs. In past years he worked with Q surveyor, and over his last vaca_ tion he was employed at Horseneck Beach. Classy Fielder Although the competition fa? positions on the Boston College Freshman baseball squad will be, without a doubt, exc~ptionally keen, Doug stands a good chance of nailing down a starting role. While he does not normally hit the long ball, Doug is often on base and has had good bauang averages in the past, which point up the value of a spray type hitter. Doug, with his strong, accurate throwing arm, his classy fielding, and his timely batting, should make the grade with the BC Frosh with little trouble. Doug Mello is capable of becoming a star wi th the Eaglee of. Boston College.

ing His Holiness Pope John XXIII's encyclical Mater et Magistra instead of the Birch "Blue Book," This advice was offered by Msgr. Francis, W.

Carney, director of the Institute of Social Education at St. John College here, said:

Garvey, chaplain and professor of philosophy at Villa Madonna College, criticized Catl.1Olics who have taken the attitude that Pope John's social encyclical Mater et Magistra is "a tissue of super-, ficialities." , In publishing an encyclical, he said, "the Pope is obviously exercising his office ,of teacher, and he is addressing all the faith-

Antagonistic "The philosophy of government which the society espouses, viewing government as a necessary evil is wholly antagonistic to Catholic 'social philosophy. "In principles, Mr. Robert 'Welch would find himself in conflict with every major recommendation of Pope John XXIII in Mater et Magistra." Msgr. Carney said of Welch: "His loose use of words, 'his general indictments of persons and organizations, his immoderate and irresponsible language do not equip him to lead a 20th century crusade against communism. "What is not kind is not Christian," Msgr. Carney said., "The John Birch Society is not kind."
