In So. America SAO PAULO (NC) - The Rockefeller Report on Latin America fails to clearly establish the positive contriI


bution of the Church to the wellbeing of its people, in the opinion of the top Churchman in Brazil. Agnelo Cardinal Rossi of Sao Paulo, chairman of tl'!e Brazilian Bishops' Conference, made these observations concerning the U. S. presidentlal mission, headed by Gov. Nelson Rockefeller of New York, that visited Latin America last Summer." It stressed only the relief activities IOf,,: the Church. It showed some militant Catholics in a "perturbing" role. Its report ignor~d the past performance of the Church as civilizer. It under-estimated the competence of the Church as teacher of'social, economic and political i'lrinciples within their religious and moral context. Perhaps Cardinal Rossi's most significant observation was, his comment on Rockefeller's repeated warning that the Church "is vulnerable to subversive penetration."

Bishop Requ'ests Speedy Decision On School Aid SPRINGFIELD (NC) Auxiliary Bishop William E. McManus of Chicago said here in Illinois General As~ sembly should decide soon whether to aid nonpublic schools in the state. Bishop McManus..' Chicago archdiocesan director of educa· tion, said nonpublic schools in the state are facing a financial crisis serious enough to jeopardize their future existence. "If this commission is still looking into the problem next year and f~ils to come to grips with it," he told the Elementary and Secondary Non - p~blic Schools Commission, "YOli"' can create a very tense situation ... next April." The commission, a 12-member unit headed by State Rep. Eugene ·Schlickman, is considering whether Illinois should give financial aid to nonpublic as well as public schools. Bishop McManus said financial problems of the schools are serious throughout Illinois, but particularly in Chicago where "increased costs have been aggravated by inflation and many factors." Hard Reality' Noting that some 300,000 students are curently in the Chi.cago archdiocesan school system, Bishop McManus said the financial difficulties are not "just a publicist's dream" but rather a "hard, tough reality." He asked the commission to conduct its business with a "sense of urgency" and not to regard school problems lightly. One of the k~y .f!l<;tors·· in determining the extent of, ..the future nonpublic schools crisis, said Bishop McManus, will be "the teacher pay matter involving the Chicago board of education." He referred to negotiations for public school teacher pay' raises. That situation, he said, will "affect Catholic schools where 11,000 teachers need annual raises from $800 to $1,000." Need $10 Million Bishop McManus said if that becomes necessary, at least 10 million dollars extra will be . needed. He added that "tuition has reached the breaking point" and that the number of affluent people is dwindling with a sharp rise in the amount of people in low in~ome catagories. Commission chairman Schlickman later indicated that the legislature will most likely receive an interim report on the question of nonpublic school aid when it reconvenes in Spring. The official report is scheduled for 1971. Last year, a 32 million dollar proposal for aid to nonpublic schools was ki.lled in the state senate after being approved earlier by the House.

Pope Bless'es Nativity Sets


VATICAN CITY (NC) - Following a Sunday blessing, Pope Paul VI delighted thousands of people by visiting the Nativity scene in St. Peter's Square and bles~ing statues of the "Baby Jesus" in crib sets brought by ,excited Roman youngsters. Pope Paul braved one. of the co,ldest days of the year to walk to the creche erected on the left side of the square and to mingle. with the youngsters. He .placed a statue of the infant Christ. in the manger, recited a prayer and heard a Roman lad promise "the prayers of the children of Rome for him" as they pray iq. .front of their crib sets at hOme. Moments before, in his brief address from the famous "third floor, second window," Pope Paul spoke of the custom of placing qib sets in the homes "to revive the memory of the birth of the Savior." The· Pope recalled ·that Christ wished to enter the world as a poor baby, thereby indicating a prelude to a new life, "a .prelude so e,lementary that even tiny youngsters can understand it." He said that this .coming of Christ enable.:; man to value "the goodness, the simplicity and the appreciation of everything as a gift from God and which we can offer back to God. This is a _sE!ntiment that is' devoid of the burdens of a complicated and worldly life, an innocent :.,sentime9t a.!ld.1'~he·t'l\e{\timEUlt,:of friends a'nd brothers."

BALTIMORE (NC)-Lawrence Cardinal Shehan of Baltimore has recommended a two-fold porgram to abate the c;urrent turbulence which assails' both the world and the Church. The cardinal asserted: "Two things in particular, it seems, can help overcome this: a reamnnation of faith and' confidence In Christ, and a renewal of loyal devotion to the Vicar of Christ, which is part of the spiritual heritage of every true Catholic."

Explain Decline In Attendance At Ret!r®@il's CINCINNATI (NC) - Attendance at retreats has fallen off 25 to 50 per cent in the past five years, but it's taking an upward turn. That's the consensus of directors of seven retreat centers in the Cincinnati archdioGese. Some of the reasons for the decline in attendance cited by the directors were "confusion" and insufficient self-advertising by retreat houses. One of the sharpest declines was noted by the Men of Milford retreat house, where Father John J. Wenzel, S.J., director, reported a drop- fro~ 3,800 in 1959 to about 2,000· 'in the past decade. Friarhourst Retreat House, conducted by the Franciscans, went from 1,260 to 970 retreatants over the past four years, but expects the 1969 total to show an upswing. Relevant Programs The Passionist Fathers at Holy Cross retreat house said they had experienced a 50 per cent loss in retreatants in the past three years. They are giving sensitivity training courses and married couples' retreats in addition to the traditional week· end "silent" retreats and ex· pect to see the number of participants go up. In Dayton, the Bergamo Center for Renewal has taken the place of the old Marianist Retrea't House and sponsors adult e d u cat ion, communications workshops, enrichment programs, evenings of renewal, institutes for industrial management and a variety of other programs. Retreats at Bergamo include more dialogue than si· lence, Father George B. Barrett, S.M., director, said. The center's emphasis is on "making its programs relevant," he .aded. On Upsurge "This does not mean a deemphasis of of the spiritual values," he said, "but rather an emphasis on the integrated man." He said Bergamo's enrichment programs" are designed to help participants reo flect a Christian attitude in the entirety of their lives. More traditional in its approach is Maria Stein retreat house in rural Mercer county. Sister Mary Octavia, C.PP. S., superior, •said the convent's silent retreats draw women from Toledo and Cleveland as well as from the southwest Ohio area. She acknowledged a faIling off in atendance in recent years but said the past Summer and Fall have seen an improvement. Retreats for women at the Dominican Retreat House in Dayton drew 1,460 in 1964 and only 760 in 1968, Sister Mary Clare, O.P., director, noted. But attendance in 1969 rose to 880, she said, and the movement is "on an upsurge."

Pennsylvania Bishop Heads Conference HARRISBURG (NC)-Coadjutor Bishop Joseph T. Daley of Harrisburg has been named president of the administrative board of the Pennsylvania Catholic Conference. The conference is a federation of the eight Catholic dioceses in Pennsylvania, established by their bishops, through which they act cooperatively in public affairs matters.

Not to lawyer Morris Ernst, who says that the nation's press, radio and television are all too happy to invert the cliche-and follow it.

Destroy Biafra Relief _P!@rae GENEVA (l\'C)-A Canadian aircraft in the service of Joint Church Aid (JCA) for Biafran relief was destroyed on the Biafran Uli airstrip' and five Biafran' relief workers were killed in a bombing attack during early evening hours, JCA headquarters here announced. The destroyed plane was a Lockheed Superconstellation owned by Canairrelief and operated by Nordair. Two relief trucks of Caritas Internationalis were also destroyed in the attack. The all-Cadadian crew of the aircraft escaped unhurt and returned safely to Sao Tome 'island, ,Portuguese West Africa, by a secElnd shuttle flight. A Boeing Stratofrieghter C97G W8.S slightly damaged but returned to base. , Like all· JCA aircraft, the Superconstellation carried protein foods and mediCines desperately needed by the civil population in Biafra;' a JCA spokesman said. In sRite of the attack, tj'ine JCA planes landed. successfully with 110 tons of relief supplies, while a further eight aircraft had to return to base' without landing, five due to bad weather conditions, two for technical reasons' and one because of the bombing. , During December, JCA has been able, to increase its nightly tonnage to 250 tons but this is less than half of the minimal 600 tons required daily, it was stated.

Illinois Official Favors Private School Aid

THE ANCHOR-Diocese of Fall River-Thurs., Jan. 1, 1970


The' New Year · There is much furor about the end of one year and the beginning of another, the end of a decade and the start of another. Actually, it is aU accomplished very simply by the flippiqg of a calendar page and that is that. There is nothiQ.g essentially magic about writing a different figure for a year. People remain, people. Problems remain .problems. H~pes remain hopes and difficulties grow rio: less with the addition of another day. · But, given the makeup of men, there is or can be a new enthusiasm with a new beginning. The human spirit finds a cer.tain release in coming to an .end and taking up a new beginning. So new year resolutions are still very much in order, ones that ate re~Jistic and possible of attainment. And ones that are' worthy for one's own direction in life and thE! good of. others.

CHICAGO (NC)-Illinois Lt. Gov. Paul Simon, a topranking Democrat, has endorsed state aid to nonpublic

education. His support, coupled with Republican Gov. Richard B. Ogilvie's commitment to state aid" . . ", : gives a bipartisan thrust to the statewide .campaign to aid nonpublic schools. . "From a taxpayers' viewpoint, state aid is an economic necessity; not a luxury," Simon said "in an interview. He cited statistics which show that in' Illinois, enrollment· in non public schools has declined 80,672 in the past two years, while enrollment in public schools has increased by 114,737. ~'This year there are 450,000 young people in our nonpublic grade and high schools," he said.

Summing up the varied impressions he ~ained on his visits to those countries, the president of the Vatican Secretariat for Non-Believers stressed that there is "an immense hope" in Eastern Europe based on an evident rebirth "of a pure and tough faith," tempered by trials and aware of its strength. "We are only at the dawn of this renewal," the cardinal said. "But this dawn is singularly promising.

Rei,ect Proposals Superintendent of Schools Resigns In Dispute With Board ,INDiANAPOLIS. (NC)-Father George Elford, superintendent of schools for, the Indianapolis, archdiocese, announced his resignation after the archdiocesan board of education rejected proposais" to drastically reorganize Catholic education here. The board voted to restate its commitment to all 12 grades of Catholic, education in populous Marion County, which includes 39 elementary and four parishs,~p'ported high schools. At the sa:ine time the board inc'reased tuition for the high schools to $350 per student from the present rate of $225. Figures for the four high schools indicate, that it will cost $476 per student to operate t!11li year, requiring a parish subsidy of $560,000. Father Elford had supported a plan retaining all eight grades in inner-city schools', and the four diocesan high' schools, while closing the first four grades in suburban parish schools. In announcing his resignation, Father Elford said he believed that the board and its sup~rin­ tendent should be in "basic I}armony" on matters of direction. He asked that the board be 'aiallowed' to select its own superintendent to better reflect, its views and that of the bishop. "You are asked to accept this letter (of resignation) as a sincere expression of b professional judgment and not simply a personal reaction to any specific decision or particular exchange," Father Elford said. "It is true that my personal preference did not lead me to my present position, the rewards of which are meager to the point of beingimperceptible." "In all'honesty," he continued, "my own preferences lean toward teaching and research. However, this is not a personal matter." . The superintendent was ap-

SAN FRANCISCO (NC)-Archbishop Joseph T. McGucken of San Francisco, has ,announced plans for the' construction of a $2.8 million residential develop, ment in the city's South of Market area, starting in the Fall of 1970. The development, consisting of 200 low rent apartments, will be built on land owned by the archdiocese and sponsored by St. Patrick's church, within whose parish boundaries it will be" erected. Occupants will be single men ot women who are displaced by redevelopment agency prospects, senior citizens or handicapped persons. Msgr. Clement J. McKenna, pastor of St. :Patrick's, said the apartment project is aimed at meeting some of the needs which will result from the development of the Yerba Buena Center, a massive redevelopment project in that area. He stressed, however that this is not the sole purpose of the project. "This is something the parish has been wantins to do for a long time for the elderly and lower income people of the area," he said. The project will be operated by a corporation named by the ,parish under the. usual Federal Housing Authority regulations, Msgr. McKenna. explained. The parish owns and operates the corporation. '

Exercises in- Iowa Mark· Theology Co-op I;)ecade DUBUQUE (NC) - Joint commencement exercises here in Iowa marked the completion of the first decade of an on-going cooperative effort among three' theology schools-the Lutheran Wartburg Seminary, the Presbyterian The· ological Seminary of the Uni· versity of Dubuque, and the Catholic Aquinas Institute. The cooperation, which began 10 years ago with informal so· cial gatherings and monthly inter-school dialogues, has matured into integrated academic programs with cross registra· tion, professor exchanges, joint seminars, student·faculty dialogues and common student activities. Speaking at the commencement, Father Kevin O'Rourke, O.P., president of the Aquinas Institute, said a call from God has gone out to the three Dubuque schools, a special vocation to ecumenism. "We have differences in belief, we have differences in concept of discipline and we have differences concerning application of some basic Christian values," he noted, adding: But the three schools have been "involved deeply in the quest of unity."

Church Memb~rship ,Drops in Germany BONN (NC) - The Catholic Church in Germany is far less p-fflicted by defections from church membership than the Protestant churches, 'according to Bishop Heinrich Tenhumberg of Muenster. The Catholic Bishops' com· ments have been occasioned by reports which show' what some circles call the "shocking" ~um­ ber of those leaving the Protestant 'churches in West Germany, particularly in the cities. Bishop Tenhumberg, who acts as liaison between the German bishops and the West German government, says the situation in the Catholic Church is "indeed, alan:ning in some respects, but in no way shocking." ~e _believes the process of secularization in public life and the weakening of relations be,tween individuals and the ,churches are the major factors ,. in>the ,particularly high number of those leaving the churches , in large'~ cities.

weekly for publishing political commentary. The Electoral Tribunal claimed an editorial in the weekly, Eco Catolico, in early December" violated constitutional provisions forbidding the use of religious beliefs by clergymen or laymen in political propaganda. Eco Catolico editorials have been used by opposing parties to further their causes in the current' campaign for the national' elections in February. Forbidding the publication of such comment by Eco Catolico, the Electoral Tribunal took the position that it included "religious reasoning in references to the present electoral issues." Father Armando Alfaro, Eco Catolico's editor, appealed on the ground that the paper is being deprived "of the freedom of expression and opinion" established by the constitution. In a new statement, the Elec· toral Tribunal said that at no time had it "forbidden Eco Catolico to give an edtorial opil1ionon political subjects." Bjlt, the· tribunal said the paper' "must abstain from mak· ing' reference to particular situations which are now a matter of controversy between political ,fa'ctions, if Eco Catollco bases its commentary on religious motivations."

MacMul-len's 'Constantine' Illuminating, ,Pleasurable

was welcome, but was the extreme change which occurred wholly favorable for the Church? Prdfessor MacMullen, like many another, has his doubts. For the Church was, in some measure, detoured into the political realm. Constantine regarded himself as a sort of bishop., He summoned councils of the Church, including the first ecumenical council, that of Nicaea, at which, from first to last, he presided. He attempted to settle theological disputes. And the Church, emerging from the condition of an underground community, took on much of the panoply of the state. Its officers borrowed the modes of dress and the horrorific titles of secular officialdom. Proces.sions, . prose style, law, were likewise copied. Left His Mark Professor McMullen" sees in Constantine an inattention to the spiritual meaning of the Church, its true inwardness. And in the consequences of Constantine's favors, he discerns a' certain contamination of the Church.' Moreover, the emperor's intervention in, for example, the controversy over Arianism, although faVorable to orthodoxy, nevertheless meant some absot'ption of theological matters into the body of secular politics. Constantine left his mark on the world, a mark' still visible in buildings qf his makin~. He also left his mark on the Church which, more than sixteen centuries after his death, retains some of the imperial trappings and language which it took on in his time. Professor MacMullen's study is solidly founded 'itl learning, but there is not the least whiff of pedantry about it. It is judicious, limpid, and enlivened with wit. Illuminating, it is also pleasurable. Cowardly Lion Coming to a quite different century and a quite different species of man, we take up Notes on a Cowardly Lion by John Lahr (Knopf, 501 Madison Ave., New York, N.Y. 10022. $8.95). This is a biography of Bert Lahr, the American comedian who died in 1967; the author is the subject's son. Lahr was an accomplished artist. Late in his career, he gave distinguished performances in Samuel Backett's cryptic Waiting for Godot and in classical roles in plays by Aristophanes and Shakespeare. These were a long way from his beginnings in the rough-andtumble of burlesque and' even from his subsequent successes in revues,' musical comedies, and movies. This means that he was not merely a performer, but an actor, with a mastery of technique. The development of Lahr the actor is, of course, one of this book's concerns. But an equal one is his personal history, and the relationship of this to his art. John Lahr has his own memory to draw on, but he has also done' much research, in the form of

Deny Charges Of 路Genocide

By Rt. Rev. Msgr., Jobn S. Kennedy Few men in all history have had as great an impact on the Christian Church as the Roman emperor Constantine (280-337). He is the subject of an excellent study by Ramsay MacMullen, a professor at Yale. Entitled Constantine (Dial Press, 750 Third Ave., New York, N.Y. 10017. $7.95), a sudden, the Church had puband patronage. the book is not a biography lie recognition Detoured Into Politics properly so called. It touches The cessation of persecution on the principal events in Constantine's life, but its chief focus is on the abiding effect and significance of his career. Constantine was only about 26 when he reached imperial rank as a Caesar. At that time there were four emperors, two in the East, two in the We:;t. !ach pair comprised an Augustus and, under him, a Caesar. Within six years of his becoming a minor emperor, Constantine was Augustus of the West, and by the age of 44 he was sole ruler of the whole empire, East and West. He was a masterly soldier, a shrewd governor of men, and a prodigious builder. He was also a 'religious mim, and the first of the emPerors to be converted to Christianity, won to some belief in it after his triumph, in' 312,- at the Milvian Bridge, but baptized only just before his death in 337. Edict of MUnn Christians in the, empire had suffered a series of persecutions. Under D1ocletian, there had begun the great persecution (303312). Its severity was not uniform throughout the empire, but in some places It was fierce iricreed. Constantine was convinced that he had a vision of the cross bef6re the battle at the Mllvlan Bridge, and that this sign sealed his victory there. In the following year, he and Licinius, the Augustus of the East, issued the Edict of Milan, which, for the first time, allowed Christians to practice their religion freely and openly, without threat or penalty. Paganism remained the official cult, and the pagan gods the official deities. Constantine paid formal reverence to the sun god, but his personal commitment was in some sense Christian. Church Recognized He was not a philosopher much less was he a theologian. He was a man of action. Professor MacMullen maintains that Constantine's religious views were based on deep feelings. "Behind the smoke screen is a man obliged to avoid challenge to paganism, but decidedly a Christian - on his own terms," Certainly he heaped favors on the Church. In Rome he built great basilicas for its use: St. John Lateran, St. Peter's, St. Paul's. Elsewhere in the empire he erected splendid church'es, very notably in Constantinople nnd in the Holy Land. All these were sumptuously decorated and furnished, and vast amounts of money were provided as subsidy for them. Bishops, from being hounded, took places of honor and power in society. The clergy were granted various exemptions. Church courts were given status and exceptional nuthority. Of

For Cooperation Cardinal ,Says Secretariat Synod's Most Important Decision MUNICH (NC)-The establishment of a permanent synod secretariat in Rome is probably the most important development of the second Synod of Bishops, Julius Cardinal Doepfner of Munich, president ,of the German Bishops' Conference, said in a TV appearance. He likened the synod secretariat to a partner of the Roman Curia (the Church's central administrative body) and said it will contribute to the development of a well-balanced relationship between the pope and bishops and will guarantee that the local churches can formulate their own characters without en.dangering the unity of the Uni~ versal Church. The permanent secretariat, he said, is the synod's most significant contribution, adding that it not only will negotiate as a kind of partner with the Curia's congregations but possibly will be' charged with tasks that until now have been within only the Curia's competence. He also said that the principle of cQllegial coresponsibility will certainly have an impact on the diocesan level. Cardinal Doepfner was hospitalized Nov. 6 with 'a heart ailment attributed to overwork. In a statement released by the interviews and of reading. He attempts' to give us his father plain. , Lahr junior has been thorough in his preparation, perhaps plethoric in his writing. The ,book could profit from paring and underplaying. But it is a striking portrait of the clown offstage.

Munich archdiocesan press office, Cardinal Doepfner said he hORed that the Pope will not ignore the coopeI,:ation of bishops before announcing important decisions concerning the whole Church. He said collegiality means the offering of assistance in administering the Church, not a transfer of papal authority to the bishops. The cardinal, in his statement, rejected the idea that the synod was too theoretical. He said that in order to meet urgent problems through coresponsibility in the episcopate, it is necessary "to establish the synod as a structure which provides cooperation between the pope, the Curia and bishops in concrete forms," He said the atmosphere of the synod was "open and fraterna1."

BRASILIA (NC) - Following press reports and charges in Europe that there have been mass killings of Indians in Brazil, Colombia and Peru, Brazilian President Emilio Garrastaza Medici denied charges that his government is engaged "in genocide against Qur own Indians." The president of the German Bishops' Conference, Julius Cardinal Doepfner of Munich, had written to each of the three governments urging them to prosecute those responsible for the alleged killings. In Bonn, Germany, Peruvian Ambassador Alberto Wagner de Reyna also denied that his country is guilty of Indian gen: ocides. De Reyna, said that there had been no killings of Indians because of their race and that there is no persecution of anyone segment of the population. "One-sided and unconfirmed press reports may have misled the bishops' conference," he added. He also promised that a. statement, will be released soon by the Peruvain government "with the necessary information to establish the truth," Swiss Ambassador to Brazil, Giovanni Bucher said that he had been queried on the reports of Indi,an killings reported in European papers and that he had found no evidence to suppon the genocide charges. The Rio de Janeiro daily, 0 Jornal, said that the genocide charges "have not been invented by European journalists, unfortunately; ,~~t originate~, ,in distOrted news pul:!!is!lC$l.'1)y' .Brazilian papers unmindful 'of their responsibility."

Deport Missioners NEW DELHI (NC)-A total of 14 foreign Christian missionaries were deported from India betwen 1966 and 1968, it was officially announced here in the national parliainent. Minister of State for Home Affairs Vidya Charan Shukle said that the missionaries left the country on being served 'with quit orders or while action was being contemplated against them.

Parishioners ~re taking the initiative to stem a high outflow of whites, from an area which. has a. signi(icant ratio: of black residents.' . ,... " ' - It's an ugly problem' which has been witnessed, often passively, by' other communities.,across the United States. I. . Parish Statistics West Humbildt has lj. dividing line: Chicago Avenue. Blacks reo . side on the' south 'side; whites on the north. There is a mixture of lower middle class· workers, Puerto Rican, black and white. There' is 'also .a strong Italian community. The problem, according to Sis· Iter· Marilyn Gestner, .a second grade teacher at the school, is to stop real estate dealer~, in and outside, the community,' from scaring whites· into selling· their homes quickly and cheaply by us· ing phone, mail and.' door·to·door panic solicitation tactics. The parish committee's' goal. she said, is to maintain racial stability in the area :while ailo\\:'.ing blacks to ,move freely ·within the community. Considerable Support She said that as: many as 60 realty firms have systematically circulated through the west Hum· boldt area during: :the last six months trying to convince whites 'to sell their homes.:, . . According to thll pastor, Father Donald F, Kelly, parish statistics have shown a withdrawal during the'last year of sorjle300 white families south of Chicago a,venue,'

The consensus, which is the first formal joint statement fully approved by the Orthodox·Cath· olic Consultation, follows four years of dialogue on the Eucha· rist, church membership and other issues separating the two churches, whose historical split goes back to the lIth century. Bishop Bernard J. Flanagan of Worcester and Archbishop Iako· vos, primate of the' Greek OrtHodox archdiocese of North and South America are co-chairmen of the Orthodox·Catholic Consu· tation.



and a concurrent school enroll· ment decrease. ' While some withdrawals stem from racial <!isharmony in chang· ing neighborhoods he said, "I'm sure the rate would be much smaller if it were· not for the efforts of panic peddling real· tors." The parish committee was formed, according tci Sister MariIyn, at the suggestion of Jersey Prete, senior citizen activities or· ~anizer for Catholic Charities of Chicago, and Al Velto, .a commu~ . nity organizer. The two men asked Father Kelly to alert his parishioners about the panic peddling afforts, she saia. After an initial three open meetings that saw about 25 people at the .first, 75 at tJte second, and about 300 'at the'third, including non-Catholic residents of the.area and several clergymen of other faiths. Currently, the committee. has active members, including some blacks, plus considerable sup· port from others in the commu· nity. Father Richard M. Dodaro. assistant pastor, is chairman of the group. Tactics of the committee,' since November, have been to concentrate on those realty firms which members believe are responsible for spreadin~ panic in the community by their solicitations. To date, the committee has apparently had nothing but success. ' According to Sister Marilyn, 11 realty firms, most within west Humboldt, have signed 'statements committing them to not solicit the parish area for three years by phone, mail or door-to-door. The agreement also· stipluates that firms will not post "sold" signs. Such signs, says Sister Marilyn and, Father Kelly, are key factors in spread- . ing community panic.

tion of Violence: The cardinal's contribution to the expansive work of the presidential commission was praised by Dr. Milton Eisenhower, chairman, during the last press conference of the commission when the final report was released. Eisenhower noted that Cardinal Cooke's seven-page chapter on "Religion and the Problem of Violence" was one of several new items disclosed by the commission. Since its creation in. June, 1960, the commission has issued numerous volumes of reports. ,Eisenhower pointed out that th~ greatest. threat to America comes from within rather than from outside sources. He said Arnold Toynbee,. prominent British historian, in extensively studying 21 major civilizations, discovered that 19 of them crumbled from internal decay. This internal moral breakdown is strongly emphasized. by Cardinal Cooke in his report. Strains of EvU Calling violence a moral and social evil, the prelate pointed out the necessity of distiguishing between good and evil. .

the vast majority of the bishops were happy to have Father O'Malley come to the meeting and make his presentation as the official representative of the federation. "The vast majority of bishops were very much in favor of what was said. We in the hierarchy are in favor of dialogue and most of us want to sit down, talk things over ann, hopefully, reach an amicable understan'ding. We must always remember that in the Church we are all striving for the same purpose and ends, and I hope together we can attain these goals we share. ': the archbishop continued.

Ordinary in Minn. Cites, Necessity Of School Aid

THE ANCHORTh.urs., Jan. 1, 1970 I

Scout Committee Grows to 31

ST. PAUL (NC)-Coadjutor Archbishop Leo C. Byrne has explained the need for state aid to S1. Paul and Minneapolis archdiocesan schools while calling for continued school support from the Catholic laity. "All of us should continue to work for Catholic education and stand behind it," the Archbishop emphasized. "This is especially true during this critical time when far-reaching decisions by the legislature will affect all of our schools, public and parochial." Reasons for Need Archbishop Byrne outlined the need for state aid but said such aid would not intefere with religious education nor dimniish the need Jpr strong lay support of Catholic sehools. The need for aid results from a move within archdiocesan schools toward smaller classes, combined with a decreasing number of available Religious teachers and the subsequent need to hire more lay instructors at higher salaries. $IC for 857 "Any state aid would only be a help-a small help-and there would still be a great, great need for 'support from the laity," the Minnesota prelate stressed. , Citing figures used by Citizens for Educational Freedom during the last session of the Minnesota state legislature, Archbishop Byrne said archdioce~an school " operations saved state and local school units $57 mi1lion annu· aUy although only $10 million had been reques~ed by private schools during last year's legislature. He suggested that the archdiocese tended now to favor a purchase of service approach to state aid whereby the state would pay a portion of lay teachers' salaries. He said that six or seven other states have already put similar plans into operation. Hopeful, Cautious The Archbishop was cautious about legislative chances during the next session, citing the fair bus law as indicating that the legislature valued the contribution private schools were making. Asked what would happen if no state aid is obtained, Archbishop Byrne answered: "I'm not one to give up easily. Perhaps it would mean more sacrifice or perhaps it would mean a diminished program."

Asks Statewide Effort Against RacismMississippi Prelate JACKSON (NC) - The spiritual leader of Mississippi's Catholics has advocated a united effort of all the state's Christians and Jews for a "great leap forward" to combat racial injustice which has continued since the days of slavery. Bishop .Joseph B. Brunini of Natchez·Jackson made the appeal ·in his sermon at Christmas Midnight Mass in the co-cathedral of St. Peter here. ' The bishop narrated the meaning of the Christmas story, then stressed that since the Resurrection God would "only speak through the Scriptures, through the Holy Spirit and through those He would send instructed and guided by this Holy Spirit." "But there are few to speak His name," Bishop Brunini continued. He said that, in many ways, the voices of religious people are as silent as the Infant Jesus was in His manger in the stable of Bethlehem. "So we who are His professed followers must speak for Him," he declared. Common Father Bishop Brunini, wh9 is ana· tive of Vicksburg, Miss., also observed: "In many ways the voices of the religious leaders in Mississippi are muted. If they do speak'" '" '" (they do so) certainly without a forceful voice to be heard throughout the land." . He said the Chrismas 1969 season "offers Christians and our Christian leaders an opportunity to make a tremendous leap forward in making true followers of Jesus Christ throughout our state." In making his call for the campaign against racial prejudices, hatred and injustices, Bishop Drunini asserted: United Voice "Here we are with more than a million blacks-most of them Christians-facing more than a

Leaders, .


Father. Can 'thill" be' tloiie?' Cer.r tainly it can be done with the grace of God. Will it be done? That depends on you and me. "As a practical suggestion, I would call for a gathering of religious leaders here in our state capital of Jackson to meet together and to issue a clarion caU to all Mississippians so that we may gird ourselves for this great leap forward in our growth in the best principles of our Judaic . and Christian teachings. "From my conversations with our Protestant bishops, our Protestant ministers, our Catholic priests, our rabbis and other religious leaders, I think the time . is quite ripe for such a united voice that will be heard throughout Mississippi and will help to .lead our people out of the bondage of past prejudices and hatreds and sufferings and injustices that still linger in our beloved state from the days of slavery. "I, for one, feel that if we religious leaders cannot speak with a united voice we stand condemned at a prophetic time, at a time when the Holy Spirit is caIling to us to exercise thecharisms of our office as men of God, as men dedicated to speak in the name of Jesus Christ and the name of Almighty God."

Harold K. Hudner,' chairman of the Catholic Committee on Scouting for the FaU River area, has announced an increase in committee memberShip. As reorganized, the committee will include 16 Massasoit Council executive board members, including Hudner; 12 Scouters; and three men not presently connected with Boy Scouting. Board members are George Bedard, Arthur Bergeron, James Collins, Leo Corriveau, Wilson Curtis, Rev. Arthur DeMello, Frederic Dreyer, Gerald Duquette, William Guillmette, Philip Hudner. Also Paul Jasmin, Gerald McNally, Harold Nagle, Paul Stevens and Edward Ward. Active Scouters Active Scouters are Norbert Baldaia, James Cox, Joseph Cyr, Arthur Gauthier, Frank Mede· iros, David Melanson, Edward Miles, Ernest Ouellette, John Pacheco, Charles Schofield, Manuel Soares and Stanley Williamson. Non-Scouters include Walter Gosciminski, . Atty. John A. Shay, former biocesan Scout chairman, and John A. Sulliyan. Speaking of them, Hudner said "I am counting on their suggestions to help us. Only half of the area Catholic parishes have Scout or Cub units, and a ,good Scouting program could help make the Church more relevant to the younger generat~on.

"Guidance of boys is primarily the' responsibility of par. ents and formation of Scout troops in parishes offers adults the op~rtunity!'t-ojassist~vonth." -uJ

Billy Connolly of Dartmouth

Set Ale Total Offense Record Outstanding in Running, Passing, Punting By Luke Sims When the call goes out for American International College football candidates next August, quarterback Billy

The brilliant AIC halfback had nothing but praise for Connolly. "Billy's determination and guttiness were indeed inspiring to me and members of the team." Together the CoD company ac-, counted for 5835 career yards. Billy kiddingly points out that "my dad couldn't kick like me." Connolly is proud of his kicking achievments, and ri~htly so. He Set a New England College Division career punting mark of 39.03. His sophomore punting mark of 41.1 tied the New England seasonal record and his 40.1 average this season helped capture the New England College Division title for the second time in his career. Gayton Salvucci, AIC head coach, is sure to feel the loss of his sparkling signal-caller. "Billy brought more than running, passing 'and kicking to the school. He brought desire, leadership and the hatred for defeat as well." Salvucci further added: "Connolly's shoes are small in size, but it will take an awfully big person to fill them." AIC .and Salvucci are understandably proud of Billy Connolly. But no one can be prouder 'than dear old dad who gained a sidekick in the annals of football history. ' '
