Council Statement on Jews Certain To Have Influence NEWARK (NC) - There is no danger that the pro­ posed Vatican Council statement on the Jews can "be pushed out of sight and so sink into oblivion," in the opinion of a priest who worked on the document. Msgr. John M. Oesterreicher, a council adjourned Dec. 4. The consultor to the Secretariat chapter deals with Christian­ for Pro mot i n g Christian . Jewish relationships. Msgr. Oesterreicher pointed Unity, said in an interview here that even if the statement as proposed does not return to the floor "it could not be for­ gotten." Msgr. Oesterreicher, a convert from Judaism, is director of Seton Hall University's Institute of Judaeo-Christian Studies. He wa answering questions about chapter four in the schema on ecumenism. Council Fathers did Jl()t have an opportunity to vote on the acceptability of that chap­ ter for discussion before the

Cha rity of Sports Stalwart Ga'ins Great Reward CINCINNATI (NC)-An­ 8ther chapter has been writ­ ten in the Damon and Pyth­ iss story of Maury Stokes and Jack Twyman, two of the nation's great basketball stars. Stokes, stricken six years ago with a crippling disease, at­ tended his first Mass as a Cath­ olic recently and Twyman, who has remained his friend in need, served as acolyte. Stokes was baptized six years ago when he collapsed aboard a plane carrying the Cincinnatl Royals basketball squad from Detroit to Cincinnati. Stokes was wheeled from his bed at Christ Hospital, where he has' spent the past six years bat_ tling paralysis, to a nearby solarium. There Father Gerald Niklas of Holy Name church had· set up a temporary altar, and offered the Mass. Father Niklas' duties include visiting Catholic patients at the Methodist-affiliated hospital. He and Stokes have become close friends. The priest obtained spe­ cial permission from the archdi­ ocesan chancery to offer Mass for Stokes, whose struggle against encephalitis has won him as much fame as his AU. America basketball career.

out that the chapter has been in­ troduced in the council and therefore "the influence of its teaching will be felt far and wide." However, he did say it is P09­ siblr that chapter four "may have to give way to others that in the minds of their promoters are as urgent, or even more urgent, than' this one. "To say that this 'is possible is not to say that I expect it," he said. "On the contrary, I continue to hope that the de­ cree will be brought again be­ fore the Fathers of the Council and overwhelmingly adopted. "But if by some accident it did not come up at the next session, there are other ways to publish it. The Pope could make it his own or a post-conciliar commis­ sion could issue it as • direc­ tive. "The major difficulty I see is this: If the majority felt that the decrees on the Jews and on religious liberty should not form part of the schema on ecumenism and wished that they be included in the forthcoming proposal on the Church and the modern Tum to Page Eleven

LONDON (NC) - A '850,000 plan to erect a na­ tional Catholic radio, televi­ sion and film studio near here has been announced. 'l'be Bishops of England and Wales have approved an appeal to Catholics throughout the eountry to raise the money in four years to set up and equip the studio at the Catholic Center for Radio, Television and Cine­ ma which already exists at Hatch End, Middlesex. The center is to be extended to provide mort. living and office .accommodation and the program will include the training of more Catholics in various fields of mass communications, announc­ ing, scriptwriting, producing, di­ recting, acting.

Council Decree

The plan follows quickly OIl the Vatican Council's decree on communications promulgated by Pope Pad VI. It aims to cope with opportunities being offered when the British Broadcasting Corporation opens • nationwide second television network in April. This is known as B.B.C.­ two. A second independent (~mmercial) network is ablo expected in the near future. The studio will produce sound and vision features on film and tape for the two big grouptl which can be expected to have a need for plenty of home-made programs.

Once Talked Into Teaching She Now Finds , Religion Class Has Helped Her Most "The Confraternity of Christian Doctrine is the layman's opportunity to participate actively in the spiritual work of the parish." As I listened to Father explain the ideas and ideals behind the C. C. D., I tried to picture myself as a part of thIS new project. Although I could understand that there would certainly be spiritual rewards, I could not really see myself as a an hour's quiet reading in quite selfish however. I feel that part of all this. I am afraid from the Bible. I am the one who benefited the that the uppermost thought By Christmas I was receiving most. I have become more vital­ in. my mind was the amount Communion ~very Sunday. This ly interested in my faith. There

of work involved in teaching a

catechism class once a week. I also felt unsure of my own abi­ lity. It was quite some time sin c e I had studied any of the fundamen­ tals of our faith. . My doubts about being 'able to cope with the material were soon allevi­ ated when I examined the text­ book. Everything was set forth, step by step, and there was am­ ple reference material for the teacher. Needless to say, after some expert· persuasion by Father, I found myself agreeing 110 take over a class. Impressions Change When my family and friends asked me why I had agreed to teach, my answer was that it sounded interesting and I thought I would give it a try. However, I think the most truth­ ful answer at that time would have been that Father talked me into it. My first impressions were to change greatly as the year progressed. By the end of the second month I found that I was be­ ginning to enjoy teaching. It was not as difficult to prepare the classes and I was finding satis­ faction in helping the students learn about their religion. The fact that I was learning too had not really dawned on me yet. Something Happening Gradually, I began to reaHze that something was happening to me. The first indication I had was when I began to branch out in my preparation. I found my­ self doing more reading from the Bible-not just that which was necessary to prepare my class. My faith had always interested me, but now I found that I de­ rived g rea t satisfaction from reading which I would have avoided before. I~ is really sur­ prising how much you can learA

I had not done since I was in college and then it was at the urging of the good sisters. At first I know that I did it as an example to my students. I did not feel that I should urge them to do something I did not do myself. With Conviction My weekly Communions in­ creased to daily during Lent, purely of my own choice. I could now speak with conviction about the wonderful inner peace we feel when we receive God's greatest gift as frequently as possible. It would be wrong for me to give the impression that the whole year passed without dif­ ficulty. There were times when I thought that I was getting nowhere. But for every bad time there was a good one and gradu­ ally the good outweighed the bad. At the end of the year I could really see where I had made progress with some of my students. Some others would always make me wonder, but on the whole I was pleased with the results. S~lfish My greatest satisfaction is

is so much still to learn and I will enjoy looking into it. My act i v e participa"tion through Mass and Communion will con­ tinue I feel certain because whenever I am tempted to let down, I remember the encour­ agement I gave to my students and I strengt1len myself. I see now how the C.C.D. can benefit the students, teachers, and the whole parish. I am very grateful for the opportunity to participate in this important work. The rewards-both spir­ itual and practical-are great. Last year for me was a year well-spent. I look forward to other years ahead and I recom­ mend this experience to others. It is one which requires a good deal of effort and sacrifice. But in anything you do you must give in order to receive.

Christian Accent On Christmas In Australia

Holds Parents Respo"~ible

For Early Dating Pattern


By Joseph T. McGloin, S.J. You can't talk with a teen-ager long on some problems without feeling that it's his parents you should be talking with instead. This is especially true when you get on the subject of dating, since the dangerous and silly dating pattern which so often ob­ by her school when she is in tains today is much more the junior high then those who fault of parents than of the sponsor them are going to * * * kids. And so this particular_ hear some strong objections column is addressed to both parents and teen-agel's. You could sum up, dating abuses under three gen­ eral heads: too !lOOn, too fre­ quently, and too exclusively too soon. Unfortu­ nately, all these abuses are so widespread to­ day that most parents seem to t-h ink t.hey're really not abuses at all, but just dandy. 'Soeial Maturity'· 'Some 0'£ them have even fallen for the old bromide that' ea'y or f r e q U n n t or steady dating matures a kid. And in so deing, they .are mistaking ;a veneer of some sort for maturity. For want of a better term, you c6uld call this veneer "social maturity." Actually, this "social matur­ ity" i!'n't maturity, at .all. It's only that some parents ·allow their kids to start dating .at a ridiculously early .age (or even flush them into it!), then see them dating frequently or 'even steadily in their ripe old teens. aRd dotingly say "'My. how cIlr-own ur they are." You dress a baby in a tux, it's __ 'Pretty funny. But dress a teen­ ager in a tux or formal and then judge them to be mature be­ cause they are big enough phys­ ical' to wear these '. - "'''es of maturity, and you've made quite !lOme little mistake often enough. a tragic mistake. Leads to Intimacy Sociologists, like Father John Thomas, S.J., are constantly re­ minding us of the simple fact that early dating leads to pro­ gressive intimacy, and that sometimes it leads to early weddings (which is not too sur­ prising), where the divorce rate is about five times the rate of those who marry in their twen­ ties. And parents who think this earlY dating is invariably super­ ficial and innocent. 'lever face the fact, for instance. 'that the average age of the unwed mother is 15. All too many are the adults who "think" like the mother who. wrote like so to a leading COlumnist: SCf"S 'Nothing Wrong' "My son is 15 years old and he has been going to boy-girl parties since ne was 12" * * You said a bov 14 was too young for kissing games .... * Just because the boy won a prize for kissing a girl ,15 minutes is no reason to be hard on him * * * I see noth_ ing wrong with a little experi­ mentation at an earl) age"""" (A-n n Landers, Minneapolis I Tribune, Dec. 28, 1962. page 10.) Good mothers, of course. bave always tolr' themselves that their boy and girl who are dat­ ing early will never be faced with such temptations, much Ie" " to them After all. ther.e were once three kids who were thrown into a blazing fur­ nace and weren" even singed. A~gressjve Fe"" Mr. Dale Francis. with gl'eat etlmmon sense, once wrote: "My daughter isn't going to any dances before ~he is a tenth crader and if there are dances

expressed. "How anyone can think steady dating is wrong and still encour­ age the start of d:;tting five to eight years before the possibility of marriage is something I can't understand * * * It is only an aggressive few who manage to impose the early social life on children * * *" (Dale Francis, OUR SUNDAY VISITOR,Oct. 15, 1961, p. 6.) As 'one psychiatrist has recent­ ly put it: The result -of 'early dating "is that the young 'boys are literally seduced away from their normal lives. At an age when the boy should be going through the badly needed period of competitive play with other boys and teasing girls when he notices them at all, he finds him_ self pushed into a relationship with w~ich he cannot cope." (TIME, April 20, 1962, 'p. 68.) _ Defers Maturity But the important point to note here is that the social ·ve­ ~ neer picked up ·by thisprema­ ture dating pattern is not ma­ turity at all. The truth is just the opposite-that thts situation requires maturity rather than produces it. 'Maturity supposes control of the emotions, and therefore ·has something to do with discipline. It means the ability to -make good decisions, and therefore has to do with balance. It means having La sense of values, not being -SEl over­ whelmed 'with an adult situation from his early years that all he is interested in. all he can talk about is dating and the ·opposite sex. These 'are problems which are difficult enough for' -an .adult, with some maturity to cope with. How is an .adolescent, with his immaturity, higher sensitiv_ ity, less perceptive sense of values and still relatively nar­ row view of life supposed to' handle 'such r roblems? Adolesl'fmt Solutions Let him face these problems gradually and as he's ready, and he'll do all right. But expose him to adult problems in adol­ escence, and you shouldn't be at all surprised if he comes up with adolescent 'solutions" to them. Lest you consider all this just the theory of an ivory-towered cleric filling in a column, it should be s'aid that the material here is only too well substan­ tiated by 10 years of essays by high-school senior' entitled, "The Greatest Moral Problems of Tef'n Agel'S," anI" "What I Would Think of Early Datihg­ IF I Had a Daughter in Eighth Grade." ThesE. are, of counie, the real authorities in this matter. It's striking, too, how much stricter the kids are than most parents. Loud-Mouthed Majority But what are parents and teens supposed t<1 do about a pattern which is seemingly so well es­ tablished? Actually. the pattern isn't that irrevocably set, not if all the parents who know what is right would work up the courage to do it. _Love, after all, is shown, in discipline as well as in Christ­ mas presents and readily granted permissions. Or, ,as one mother put it so well, "We o've it to our kids t r b. unpopular with them sometimes."


Christian accent on Chri8~ mas was stressed more than ever this year throughout Australia. Cribs were almost the rule in city shop windows and carol festivities were multiplied. In addition to the main city~ Christmas tableaux held ill Sydney in its central Hyde Park. - spread to more and mor~ suburbs and country towns. Thill is largely due to the Christian Christmas Committee, an interdenominational group of and laymen which had as its motto, "Put Christ back into

NEW DELHI· (NC) - Asia's ·own experts on population mat­ ters have stressed more food rather than fewer births in pointing to solutions to the C(}Il­ tinent's ,growth problems. Called together by the United Nations for the first Asian Pop­ ulation Conference, representa­ tiV1:lSfrom 20 countries gave top priority to increasecl food ,out­ put .and put family planning in seventh place as a means of re­ lieving human misery in over­ crowded Asia. The conferees pointed out to the world that no matter how drastic the methods employed, family planning programs, such as those already adopted ion countries like India. Pakistan and Korea, could not appreciably affect population growth during the next decade or so. Fifteen observers from nine. international Catholic organiza­ tions and four Catholic U.N. del­ egates participated in the con­ ference. It was sponsored by thrf!e F. N. units and the Indian government. Prime Minister Nehru opened the 10-day delib­ era1ions. Social Justice Context The Catholic position was put before the meeting in a context of :;ocial justice. It was stated that the ChI" 'ch is emphaticaJly interested in "ll-out efforts' to raise per capita income through­ out Asia, and in elevating the actu al standa.·ds of living of the gre<it masses of people in both urban and ~ural areas.

Praises Church For Peru Land Reform Role SAN ANTONIO (NC) A Peruvian editor said here that the Catholic Church has: enthusiastically participated In the government's program ta give land to the Peruvian people. This was reported by Luis. Durand Flores, managing editor of El Pueblo, a secular paper published in Arequipa, Peru's second largest city.' Durand Flores visited San Antonio as part of an exchange program sponsored by the U. S. State Department, promoting cultural exchanges between the Americas. He stressed that agrarian re­ forms were part of a necessary. IIOcial justice program to assist the Peruvians and praised the Church's cooperation in the land reforms. "The Church has voluntarily contributed property to the gov­ ernment's program," he said. "I know of one case where a bishop moved from his house and per­ mitted it to be used for a proj­

ect." Education Progress The Peruvian editor said the Church is m::king progress. in education. He especially praised the Maryknoll Fathers' achieve­ ments in establishing schools. Durand Flores. was Gptimistic about eventual success of the Alliance for Progress, despite shortcomings which he said cal' be ironed out. However, he cau­ tioned against expectin@: quilik results from the program. "It will take a long time be­ fore any positive results are re­ alized," he said. "The U.S. and Latin America are not accus.­ tomed to doinl;l business on Ii. large scale with each other. We have been virtually separated for centuries."

There are 20 Brothers serving in various ass'ignments. Polish Parishes The Diocesan parishes served· b3c the friars happen to be Polish, but they explain that a boy need not be of that nationality to jointhe order. Many wonder why the term "conventual" is attached to the fathers, and it is explained that their houses are properly called convents, hence the name.

Four years at St. Hyacinth College and Seminary in Granby, Mass. follow the novitiate. At this time college courses, with a major in philosophy, are th . taken.

Priests in Congo

To Carry Arms

ELISABETHVILLE (NC)­ In the aftermath of an attack on the Kafubu Don Bosco Mission near here, priests of the mission "have been -given permission by security ~lice to carry arms. Father Jenri van de Braecke, Belgian superior of the mission, said three armed bandits robbed an Africa"n priest of his wateh, spectacles and shoes. . The bandits, thought to be renegade gendarmes, fled when Father van de Braecke ordered the missionaries to resist. Several shots were fired into the walls of the mission, one of the most important in the area. Most of the staff of 30 Fathers are Europeans.

.Great Moment


The attention of men everywhere was centered on the Holy Land during the three days whim Pope Paul visited as a pilgrim the places sacred to Catholic and Jew and Ortho­ dox and Mohammedan. And the hearts of men were with him in their hopes for peace~ for Christian unity, for stronger bonds of brotherhood among all who profess belief in One God. The extraordinary news coverage of the pilgrimage shows that people everywhere were interested, and did, indeed, hope that from this would come benefits for the whole world. The Pope embodies, more than any other single person, the principles of goodness and charity and religious values. It was as such a person that he was received with unusual eourtesy by Israel and Jordan. The meetings between Pope Paul and the. Orthodox Ecumenical Patriarch augur well for the future. The wall of separation -a wall that was built by both sides - has been breached and will never be rebuilt. There can only be greater understanding, a further clarification of beliefs, a deeper investigation into the differences that separate. And it might well be tpat those differences are found to be fewer than once thought. . The sight of Pope Paul, the First Bishop of the Church, retracing the footsteps of Christ was a touching one. Even the press of the crowds, the mob force that literally swept him along, was not to be decried. For while one of his party commented, "He has been jostled and pushed all the way through the Via Dolorosa," could not the same have been said of Him whose Vicar Paul is? Paul showed himself to be the Father of Christendom and more the good shepherd whose concern extends itself to every man of good will, Catholic, Jew, Mohammedan, Protestant. And, like ~ Father, he was willing to go out to these, in simplicity and in love. What has come or will come from this pilgrimage? As an editorial in The New York Times pointed out: It proves that man does not live by bread alone. The future will mark this pilgrimage as a great moment in religious history.

Family Feast .


ClA!££1t With th£ Chu,11.Ch



Sunday is the Feast of the Holy Family. It is an op­ portunity for mothers and fathers, sons and daughters, to measure themselves and their efforts against the Family of Nazareth. Sociologists are loud in their insistence that many of the woes of this age would disappear if only parents, and children would live up to their proper roles. Fathers who do not live their proper roles as heads of families, who do not give the example of strength and courage and authority, are responsible for many of the rebels who go by the name "juvenile'delinquents." Mothers who are inadequate, who resent the role that marriage and motherhood have given them, who seek for their "life" outside the home and have no time to make the family a happy place, should not be surprised if husband and children hate to be home. Sons and daughters who have never been taught to love by seeing the example of love in their parents, who have never been taught that sacrifice is the proof of love, who have not learned that they have a role in the family just as do their fathers and mothers, will grow up unaware that they are part of a family and can contribute much to it as well as taking much from it. The Feast of the Holy Family will be wasted if it is not spent in a certain amount of introspection and self­ examination. In the light of the Family of Nazareth, of the God-centeredness and love and authority and sacrifice that had place there, each family must measure itself and see wherein it is lacking and take the steps that will put things aright:



TOMORROW - Mass as on EJ,ipbany. This is why the Church as the great sacrament of Christ, continues to manifest His glory on this earth. Fr. Karl R-'-'1er says, "The whole of mankind is already in principle ac,~epted for salvation in this member and head of mankind • 4 * mankind as a whole be. come a consecrat.ed humanity." When we worship, then, we must be conscious not only of the saeramental presence of Christ before us, but also of Christ-in­ us, of Christ acting and worship_ ing in and through us, of our

chdstened dignity. I~ASS OF ST lWARY 'ON SATURDAY. "Not by reason of good works that we did our­

selves, but according to his mer­

cy, he saved us" (First Reading). Thus the Church, sacrament of Christ, Epiphany of Christ, shows us that God's g>:>ace is free and undeserved by enrolling us, baptizing us, without any merit' of our own. Mary's unmerited glory, as symbol of faith and of the Church, ·as an object of Christian devotion is one of the ways in which we 1<:eep this Gos_ pel truth before our eyes.


and dignity which God has laid

on humankind.

MONDAY-The Baptism 01 Our Lord. Man is not in this world as a kind of accident. He belongs here, even though his ultimate destiny lies beyond. The Genesis mandate to master the earth and make it serve the human community still stands. Sin crippled that mastery as it crippLed our relation to the Father and to another one. Today Jesus reclaims the waters, makes them again a means of life and symbol of purity, asserts His divine au­ thority over lesser creatures as well as man. "He it is who bap­ tizes with the Holy Spirit," says th~ Gosoel, seeing in the mater­

ial world a sacramental world.

TUESDAY-St. Hilary, Bisbop,

Confessor, Doctor. It is this same Holy Spirit, with His gifts of wisdom and understanding, who makes the great teachers of Christ's Church. "You are the salt," "you are the light," Jesus says tc thos, born out of the water He has sanctified. Commitment and the life of t.he Spirit, rather than human flashes of genius (though the two are not necessarily incom­ patible), are what constitute a teachin.=- ministry of "sound doc­ trine" (First Reading) such all we honor today.

and claimed squatters rights to their plots. Thus a new slum was born -a slum of the sub u r b s, for some 100,000 of their neighbors have joined them in this community called "The City of God." Here for these people there is no elec:­ tricity, no water but for a few central taps, no paved streeta, not a blade of grass, no sanitaq disposal. Children here have never beea hi an automobile, or into Lima, or seen a building, or swam ia a river, or had a bath, or * * * fir * • • or. They imitate the am.. mals in digging a hole and using that for their latrine. Today the wealthy are parcelling out their lands and selling them before squatters take over the property. This Christmas - again the .day before Christmas - the City of God gave its first priest to the Church. Tre ordination wae front page news in the Peru papers-for ordinations of native Peruvians are rare events. OnJ:v seven Peruvians have been ol'­ dained in the last five years. It was also front page newoa that a boy from such sad condi­ tions could rise to become a priest of God ·from the City of God. Beautiful City But Lima is also a beautiful city - a city surrounded by mountains, a city where it never rains, a city of lovely, stately homes and beautiful foliage, a city of friendly people. It is a city w here the Church is a strug­ gling to aid both the poor and the rich in their travail as they seek solutions to prob­ lems of the day, a city where the government is taking strong measures to aid the downtrod­ ·den. Priests, sisters, brothers and PavIa volunteers are doing a Herculean task in helping the people in the "cities of shacks and orange crates." The Church - through the work of these self-sacrificing people-is mak­ ing progress but the mood here is that time is working against us. Already the Communists are agitating people in the hills to invade the haciendas, ana each day's paper carries new reports of those killed in these invasions.

'Prelate Predicts Latins to Resist Cuban Lure , MIAMI (NC) - The peo­ ple of Latin America will not sacrifice their freedom and their religious faith for the "phony political and economic system" ruling Cuba, Richard Cardinal Cushing said here. The Archbishop of Boston de­ scribed 'himself as "optimistic" about the future of Latin Amer. ica in a sermon preached at a memorial Mass for the late President Kennedy. More than 4,000 Cuban refu­ gees attended the Mass which was offered in Bay Front Park amphitheatre by Bishop Coleman' F. Carroll of Miami. The service marked the first anniversary of President Kennedy's visit here to review a Cuban refugee bri­ gade that took part in the aboI'... tive Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba. Cardinal Cushing, recalling achievements of the Kennedy administration, praised the Al­ liance for Progress program of U. S. aid to Latin America. "Some have said that this pro­ gram has failed," he sa·id. "If it has failed it is because it has not been tried."

Courtesy of 1apanese Children Impresses Fall River Grey Nuns on the Missions

NEW ORLEANS (NC) ­ An economics professor said here he foresees a low-cost medical insurance plan for Sisters in this country geared to their longer life expectancy and better health. Con J. Fecher, professor of economics at the University of Dayton, noted that most Sisters in this country don't have medi­ calor hospital insurance. "They can't afford it," he said, and when illness sets in it pre­ sents many economic complica­ tions for the Sisters. Fecher and Dr. James T. Nix, a New Orleans surgeon, are the driving forces in research in this country aimed at improving the health and extending the useful­ ness of Religious and opening up avenues of financial support for their health care. Fecher was here to consult with Dr. Nix on the progress of their work. For the past two years he ha.s been on leave from the University of Dayton to de­ vote full time to his health study of Religious. 'Medical PasspOrt' Most previous studies, he said, have been mortality stUdies con­ cerned with deaths and the causes of deaths. Father's re­ cent activities are concerned with illnesses of Sisters during their lifetime. To collect this data he has de­ vised a medical identification card which he calls a "medical passport." Not only will the cards aid in accumulating medical informa­ tion to help the nuns eventually acquire health insurance priced according to their life expect­ ancy and health, said Father. It also serves as a medical history which the Sisters can carry when they are transferred or travel. The cards, he said, can be of great value to doctors treating them for illness in the future.

IT'S AN ICICLE, SISTER: Sister St. Jeanne of the Trinity, left, and Sister St. Paul of the Saviour get reac­ quainted with the New England Winter after some 10 years in Japan. The two, Fall River natives and members of the Grey Nuns of Quebec, are on home visits. cause moral standards are incul­ cated," explained Sister St. PaUl, "and they respect the Sisters." The novitiate attached to Caritas Gakuen has been _estab­ lished six years and it prepares girls for the Sisters of Charity community. It has four postu­ lants and two novices at pres­ ent. Six Sisters already professed are teachers at the school. Stray children are not rare in -7apan, said the Sisters. "Almost always we have a little waif at our house," said Sister St. Jeanne. She told of a four year old girl carried on the back of her father. "He came to the door begging and we asked where he lived. 'Under the bridge,' he said. The bridge was a concrete structure, damp and windy, no place for a four year old to be sleeping. We took the little girl in and she divides her time be­ tween us and the .Sisters of Christ the King, who have an


orphanage. We would like to adopt her, but her father will give us no information about her. The sad part is that when she is old enough, he will prob­ ably come and take her away to be married. But we are trying to make a little part of her life a beautifUl part," finished Sister. While the Sisters are in Fall River, they will. accept invita­ tions to speak at area schools, and they can be contacted at St. Joseph's Home.

Foresees Better Break for Nuns On Insurance

"They are so polite!" That's the predominant impression Sister St. Jeanne of the Trinity and Sister St. Paul of the Saviour have of Japanese youngsters. The religious, members of the Sisters of Charity of Quebec, better known in the Diocese as the Grey Nuns, are in Fall River for a home visit after mission service in Japan. Sister St. Jeanne, the former Jeannette Blan­ chette, is the daughter of Horace Blanchette of Our Lady of Grace parish, North

Westport. A sister, Doria Blan­ chette, lives with her father; and 'another sister, Mrs. Yvonne B. Gagne of 630 Maple Street, Fall River, is a member of St. Roch's parish. Sister St. Paul is the former Gloria Beaulieu and is the doughtel' of Mr. and Mrs. Jo. seph Beaulieu of Blessed Sacra_ ment parish, Fall River. A sister, Mrs. Leonel Desrochers is also a member of Blessed Sacrament. The Sisters are among pioneer members of their community in the Japanese mission field. Sis­ ter St. Paul was in the first group of Grey Nuns to travel to the Orient 10 years ago and Sis­ ter St. Jeanne followed her the next year.

Does seem, though, that an undue pro­ portion of tim e is spent to shelves. Thank goodness for waiting - most of it in lines • the "ten items or less'; check-out of one sort or another. Some though even these slots some­ times providE speed-traps in the ~ple are just "lucky lin­ ers": As they enter a bank, a tel' opens up another window. With'us, it's just the opposite. No matter how elosely we ~utinize those ahead of us in line, wondering, "Is she just go­ ring to cash a eheck?" "Is he going to make 8 quick deposit end leave?", we invariahly end IIp behind somebody with a long payroll or a boy with a box of pennies he must have been sav­ ing for years. Unfortunate Knack Same way with buses, particu­ larly on these windy, wet, cold­ inducing days: the woman just ahead gets on the bus as the driver bangs the door shut. Then two "Not in service" vehiclefl _how up and a couple more ibeaded in the direction we are not, before we finally manage to 8queeze, gratefully, into an overheated, overcrowded chariot tor home. And in the cafeteria, we llCem to have a knack of aligning our_ eelves behind thi! lady who ean't make up her mind, 'switch­ ing from veal cutlet to roast beef end wanting her gravy "out of that other pan," and at the end paying for the whole thing with • $20 bill ,.'hich, often as not, the cashier can't change. As for car-inspection line-upc end' waits, -ve have vainly tried to maneuver around that situa­ tion: presenting ourselves at the inspection depot first thing in the morning, when everybody else had the same scheme; at lunch ,time, when all the inspeC_ tors but one were themselves out to lunch; and at closing time when the quitting bell would ring as we were but a eaT or two away. You can't win 'em all? No, but one should be able to win IIOme of them sometimes! In the post office line, do we ever stand behind somebody buying a simple book of stamps? Far from it. The man or woman in front of us has six money orders to be made out or a package so insecurely wrapped that the clerk has to re-do the whole business. This Is Unde1'8tatement, . In the grocery store, of course, experience and observation prettY good guides as we. ap­ proa,ch the check-out stand, eou'nting only the baskets but how'many individual -itemll each contair)s and dodging whenever possible, the mamas with runabout ;uniors, who are almost certain to have put in items that have to be returned L


forms of customers who have forgotten to have produce weighed, who want to cash a check and have no credentials, or with an irate complaint for the manager. Then t~ere are the Saturday­ afternoon-in-church lines, much more difficult to estimate. One can count grocery baskets and the number of items therein but how in the world do you guess who is going to make a general confession? Perhaps we Me impatient. Perhaps? Now, that's an under statement! To test the reaction of our fellow waiters-in-line, we de­ cided to bring up, discreetly, the topic of waiting, to find out if we were unique in this aver­ sion to waiting. The first was a young nun in a library line: "It's provoking to have to wait, isn't it, Sister?" "In a way it is," she smiled, "But it can also provide extra time for meditation." Other answers as to what peo­ ple d<l while waiting: "I practice my French voca·b­ ulary." "I say a few extra prayers." "I study people--very interesting." "I ,relax, just pre­ tend this is a little rest period." And the final, "Well, I do just what you'rei-oing now-talk to the folks around!" Surely these "lines" giveno , cause for eomplaint.

Two Nuns Win: Song' Contest

,By John: J. Kane, Ph. D.

"If a' man, has a ,do~ineering wife, what can he do? Put up and shut up? My wife must make all decisions, big and little - for me, for the children and for the entire family. If I disagree, she gets violently angry. If this doesn't ,,!ork, she s.ulks. I'~ get~ing the responsibility for many male tIred of thIS taxatIon wIth- maladjustments such as alcoho­ out representation. Is there lism and emotional disturbances any hope of changing this 1" on overdominant mothers. Actually, Tom, you are asking two questions: first, why is my wife domineering; secon.d, how can I change her. Unless we can answer the first, we cannot even approach the second, sO let's examine the first. Human personality is' a pretty complex matter and it can scarcely be examined exhaustively in a lew paragraphs. ' Some people are extroverted. They love to be with others, they are frank, outgoing, talkative and such. Others are introverted, .hy, retiring, untalkative. Actually few persons are at either ext~eme but rather tend toward one o~ the other type of behavior. The same is true of dominance and its opposite characteristic, submissiveness. ' Difference of Degree Now what is really Jmportant here, is that people tend to behave this way under almost all circumstances. At a party, the extrovert behaves in a free wheeling, outgoing style. He, or she may be the so called, "life of the party." But even at a, funeral the extroyert, ~ only IOmewhat less restrained. Hb behavior Is ,not a difference ,of kind, but a difference of degree. On the basis of your question, your wife is a dominant personality and, of course, there is am~l~ opportunity £!»r dominant behavior' in family life. C~y ,.OU dlt not deny her ~e right to be tbia way lOme time, about lOme thinga. You object 'tit the : everall dOminance which inci. :der tally f~rees you,and .th~ , children into an attitude of su~ ! mission. 'nUll irk~ you, .~ yo~ are obviously not the Milquet' toast type: , , ' '. ; But wh~, Is your wife domltnant? Years,ago it was ,custom.. : aty to explain everything on th~ : basis of heredity, orthenoti~ tbat bloodwlll tell. Then it be.. came the IItyle to explain it all In terms of childhood experience. PenoDalit:r Neecl Today, it is recognized that what happens in adult life Is also important, so all tJu'ee factors would have to be conadered. Some .un, hold that domiDance, extroversion and such are personality characteristics pretty much fixed in the first three yean of life and constitutional factors playa part. But it seems more fruitful to assess yOUl' wife's dominance in terms of personality need. ' , ' Ba,sically, ,your wife's d9minance may' be the resUlt 'of feelings ~ insecurity. :!;leiog insecure, She must assert. herself \ to prove that she is worthy, she is somebody, she will not be stepped upon by otliers., Unfortunately, this need is arecurring one, almost insatiable. Sh~ mu.It prove herseJ{ not only 01i Monday, but on'~esday, Wednesday and every day 'of the week. She must assert herself ItOt only in matters in which the wife has a particular compe_ tency, but in all matters, and lOme times rather fooUshly when she has neither knowledge Dor skills to do so. DalllAliu« lor Children If your wife is truly dominant, the results cah be most damaging, especially for the' chlldren. 'lIhe late Dr. Edward Strecker, a famoU8 psychiatrist, in a somewhat bitter book, -rheir Mo&ben' SoDa" p1aced o

But one need not l~ap to ex­ and make VIolent as­ sumptlons about the result of dominance. The clue to y?ur ef­ forts to change y?ur Wife h~s already. been provided. ~f she IS really Insecure, and thiS I am in~lined to believe, s.uch feel~ngs wIll have to be relIeved. Smce ,you raised the issue, YOU will, have to take action. Your wife's insecurity may come from various possibilities, and Y0':l may not even be able to de~ermlDe them. It may b~ some­ thmg that occured in chIldhood. Even certain physiological fac­ tors such as high blood pressure could be responsible. If this is the case, medical care is indi­ cated. If you suspect this con­ suIt a physician so it may at least be ruled out. Positive Steps Neoessar,. , But more importantly a ques­ tion must be raised about you. Have you contributed to the development of your wife's in­ security? Are you per hap s equally dominant? Have you been willing to as­ sume your share of family re'­ sponsibility? Or is t hi. a delayed reaction to a wife's be­ bavior brought on by . , husband's failure to fulfill his roie. I cannot determine this. ~erhap. you can. At any rate certain positive lteps ean be taken b:r you. First, reassure your wife that she has the right to make a number of decisions among which are those regarding h 0 use furnishings, borne decorations, menus and child rearing - albeit the latter must be snared to' lOme extent. At times the absence of ,the huSband from the at work, ~aveimg and': Ilitch' cmiipel~ wives to make deCisions th'at they would prefer .to, be either,a ,husband's dec~sionoi ajoint cle­ cHiton. Don't'criticlZeher if she seems to usurp au'thorfty 'under such circumstance. She has really had it t"rust upon her. Complemental',. Needs Perhaps one of the most basic sources of wifely insecurity in marriage is doubts about a hus­ band's love for her. CoUld this be your case? Are you a~ectionate, responsive, sympathetic? One aspect of re!!poll9iveness is doing things together. The things you do together can cover'. wide range - prayer, recreation, edu­ cation and mutual responsibility ,i1). child rearing. . ' Students of the -family often talk of what they' call comple­ mentary needs in ,IIian:iage. The more a couple have in' 'common­ educational level,' religious af­ filiation and "such - create a bond, stabilizing the marriage. But in the field ofpersonallty, husbands' and wives' differences should complement each other. Requires HomilU,. The husband's.: strength UI complemented; by ,the' wife's tenderness. When two dominant persons marry, rocks and shoals are almost inevitable until they can map, out areas of decision, and hOI)efully enlarge areas of mutual decisions, or. untU the basic insecurity creating ex-, treme feelings of dominance are overcome. Your line of action seems to be first, to try to discover the reason for your wife's need to dominate. Assuming it is not a physiological problem but a psy. chological one, work bard to help her feel secure..

Pope Paul VI Donates Gifts To Churches JERUSALEM (N C ) Pope Paul VI on his visit to the Holy Land presented vestments and chalices as gifts for these churches in which he offered Mass: the Church of the Holy Sepulcher here, the Church of the Annunciation in Nazareth and the Nativity grot­ to in Bethlehem. 'He also left an olive br~nch of gold at the Church of the Holy SepUlcher, a crown for the statue of the Madonna at Naz­ arethand an 18th-Century thur­ ible for the church in Bethlehem. The Pope brought with him a Golden Rose, fashioned in imi­ tation of a spray of roses and containing a receptacle into which is poured balsam and powdered musk. He left it as a gift for the Divine Infant at the grotto below the Basilica of the Nativity in Bethlehem, where he offered Mass (Jan. 6). The Golden Rose is conferred on persons, churches or cities in recognition of outstanding ser­ vice to the Church.

Papal Peace Pleas Mark Pope Paul's Visit With I.srael's President JERUSALEM, Israel (NC) - Pope Paul VI continued the appeals for t>eace that marked his Holy Land pilgrimage during his day-long tour of Israel Sunday. At his re'ception in this country by President Shneor Shazar, the Pontiff said: "A pilgrim of peace, we pray before all else, for the favor of man's reconciliation with God, and that of a true profound concord among all men and all peo­ ples." In an unscheduled talk at the ceremony marking his

departure from Israeli Jerusa­ lem, the Pope said he was deeply moved by the welcome he had received and called for under­ standing and peace. ..President Shazar read his wel­ coming speech in Hebrew after the sounding of' a trumpet fan­ fa~:l. The Israeli national an­ them was not played since the government did not want to em­ barrass the party from the Holy See, which does not recognize Israel. After President Shazar's speech hr . been translated into French, Pope Paul replied in French, which was in turn translated into Hp'-rew. The Pope's address was welcomed with ap"'lause and the Israeli group was particularly impressed by the Pope's con­ cluding w 0 l' d s in Hebrew, "Shalom, s h a lorn" (peace, peace), the traditional Israeli greeting.

Praises Baptist Antibias Decision

Israeli Official's Freedom Credit To Popes Aid MEGIDDO (NC)-,-One of the first persons· to welcome Pope Paul VI to Israel was a former resident of Rome who with his father was enabled to escape Mussolini's harsh anti­ Semitic law;; with the Pontiff's aid while he was still an official of the Papal Secretariat of State. Meir Mendes, deputy director of the Israeli Ministry of Reli­

gious Affairs, stood on the wind­ swept border between Israel and Jordan to welcome the Pope as he crossed from Jennin to the Taanach Gate: "My father was a professor and doctor at the University of Rome," Men des recounted. "When the anti-Semitic laws were passed in 1939, he was greatly disturbed and decided to take the family to the British mandate of Palestine."

Prays With Pope Continued from Page One alone for 20 minutes. After concluding their private discussion, the two asked their chief attendants to come into the audience room. The Patriarch, who became a' ' United States cit i zen while serving in America prior to his election to the~ Constantinople See, then read a five-minute formal speech of greeting to the Pope in Greek. It was immedi· ately translated into French. Patriarch Athenagoras expressed joy at meeting Pope Paul in the land sanctified by the life of the . Lord. After saying that he regarded the event of exceptional impor­ tance and significance in the life and in the history of the Church, Athenagoras voiced the hope that the good intentions recently shown on both sides "shall become the prelude of 'a mutual communion, the dawn of a luminous and blessed day, in which future generations, com~ muning in the same chalice of the most precious Blood and of the Body of the Lord, will glorify the only Lord and Saviour in charity, peace and unity." In thanking the Patriarch for his visit, the Pope informed him that he would return it the fol­ lowing day in circumstances matching the loving expressions voiced in the PatriaJ.:ch's speech. After the exchange of greetings, the two leading churchmen re­ cited the Lord's Prayer, first in Latin, then in Greek. . To commemorate the meeting, Pope Paul presented the Pat­ riarch a gold commemorative medal. He also gave copies of the .' commemorative medal to each member of the Patriarch's party.. The next morning, following his Epiphany Mass in Bethlehem, Pope Paul returned the Pat­ riarch's visit, traveling. to the residence of Orthodox Patriarch B.enediktos of Jerusalem, where' Patriarch A the nag 0 r a s was staying. Here the warmth of the en­ counter 12 hours earlier was re­ peated, with Patriarch Athen­ agoras receiving Pope Paul at the front door. The Pope and the Patriarch talked privately. Then Pope Paul· presented two members of the . staff of the Vatican Secretariat for Promoting Christian Unity Msgr. Jan G.M. Willebrands, and· Father Pierre Duprey, W.F. The Pope in a formal address in Latin expressed his "great ah~ profound" gratitude for the Patriarch's coming to Jerusalem to meet him in this "truly his- . toric" meeting. He said that the will "to work to surmount dis­ unity, to break down barriers," is becoming ever more wide­ spread among all Christians. And in closing, he said that "it is not a 'goodbye' that we say to you, but, if you allow us, an 'au revoir' based upon the hope of oU'~- fruitful meetings 'in the Name of the Lord.'" Following the exchange' of formal greetings, the Pope left the patriarchate on the arm of the Patriarch, who accompanied him out of the building, down­ st~:rs and into the courtyard to his waiting car.

, Many mental patients belong in'the realm of psychiatry, but 'there are some patients whom no psychiatrist can heal. They are like the woman in the Gospel, who "after having spent aU 'of her money on physicians was not better but worse." The reason medicine cannot help them is because they are suffering from a hidden sense of guilt. Multiplying their sins and rebellion against the law of God, they 'reach a point where life become. intolerable; suicide often follows. They call themselves worth­ less, forgetful that no one can be worthless for whom Christ die~.

Sports Star Continued from Page One Equally famous is Twyman;s friendship, which aided Stokes' conversion to the Catholic Faith. Like Twyman, who starred at the University of Cincinnati be. fore joining the Royals, Stokes is from Pittsburgh. He attended St. Francis' College at Lorretto, Pa., where he first became in­ terested in the Church. , On trips with the Royals the Negro star often accompanied ,Twyman and Richie Regan, an­ other Catholic teammate, to Mass on Sundays and hoiy days. " It was Regan, now coach at Seton Hall University, South Orange, N. J., who baptized Stokes on the plane, but it w.. .Twy~an, now a Cincinnati rea­ id-imt and still with the Royals, who took over the management of Stokes' affairs;lndbegan" a whirlwind nationwide campaig.n to raise money ,for, Stokes' el)or~ ~ous 'medicalexpe~s,,' '. , .. ' 'Formal Instructions" . .,


Meanwhile, F ath e r John Campbell, former 'principal' of De Porres High School, began visiting ,Stokes at the 'hosp-ital to give him formal instructions iftthe Catholic Faith. He had met Stokes when the big pro had come to De Porres to speak to the students. Stokes has been receiving Communion weekly at the hOs~ pital 'for some yearll- He did 10 at his first Mass. ( . ' When Father Niklas received permission for the Mass, Magr. Henry J. Vogelpohl, the chan­ eellor, wrote a postscript which said: "Get Twyman to serve." "

Spiritua~ Leadership, First Responsibility AUSTIN (NC) - It is wise to separate' Church and Sate, but men of. ,government should not cut off themselves from religion. The counsel came from Presi­ :dent JohnSon, who spoke at the 'dedication of Agudas AchlJD. 9,Ynagogue here. He also ob­ served: "A first responsibility for national leadership is spirl~ tual leadership, for, I deeply b~.. lieve, 'America will prevail n~ , because her pocketbooks are big but because the principles Of her people are strong." "It is my hope, and your prayer, that the tests of t~ future will find us all working to put down hate - to prevail over 'evil - to work with mercy and compassion among the af;. flicted," U1e President, .

For those who are not mentally sick, but are suffering from grave sins, the cure is in atonement, in reparation, in the making up for guilt by penance. In his play, "The Cocktail Party," T.S. Eliot makes Celia Cop­ plestone say in her confession to' the psy­ chiatrist: "It's not the feeling of any:'

thing I've ever done' 'which

I might get away from, or

of anything in me I could

get rid of, but of emptiness,

of failure toward someone,

or something, outside of my:­

self; and I feel I must * * *

atone - is that the word?"

A few years ago a plea was made on television for a national day of atonement for the sins of America. But a government official recommended that the word "atonement" be dropped, because people would not understand its meaning. H yoU have any sins for which you would like to atone, then help convert sinners in Africa; if guilt mounts up before your face, then turn despairing souls into white souls through tile preaching of our missionaries. Build a chapel or a hospital, or educate a native priest. Do anything which will cut into your own flesh, into your own ~iIt. Waste not youi' money by giving it to those who already have: give it to those who have not, and who share the poverty of Christ. God will then have mercy on your 80ul for,as Scripture says: "Charity covereth a multitide of sins."

In a statement issued to the press, the council praised the - bousing law, known as the Rum-' - ford Act, saying that it is in­ tended to improve housing, re­ duce the adverse effects of racial discrimination and "to discour­ - age individual owners of certain real property from disposing of 'such property in disregard of Christian principles of sociai justice." The California Real Estate Board is circulating a petition to

nullify the law in a statewide re­ ferendum on the November, 1964, ballot. It proposes a con­ stitutional amendment which 'Would deny the state --J autho­ rity to intervene in the selling,

leasing or rent of real property.

The effort to kill the law was

,opposed earlier by the two ehaplains to the Catholic Inter­ racial Council in the neighboring Oakland diocese: The Oakland interracial group

atso distributed in churches eopies of an editorial in the, 'Voice, newspaper of the Oakland diocese, urging citizens not to sign the petition for a referen­ 41t,- on fair housing. The San Francisco men's group said that although personal lib­ erty is a precious possession based on human dignity, it must

,be curtailed on occp"in" "for the goodof the community as well as for the welfare of individuals."

Shriver told newsmen here that the Pope seemed touched, particularly when he read the portion of the letter in which the President, a Protestant, asked the head of the Catholic Church to pray for the U. S. peace efforts and also for the work of the President. Shriver said the Pope looked up from the letter, said he will­ ingly would offer prayers' for the requested intentions and that . he was appreciative that the President had made the requests. The body of the President's letter had been typed, but the Chief Executive added a post­ script in his own handwriting in whiCh he expressed the hope for a meeting with the Pontiff, Shriver said.

CYO Names Year·s .Outstanding . Catholic Youth, Young Adult WASHINGTON (NC) - A Negro youth who is president of the Baltimore archdiocesan Catholic Youth Organization has been named the na·tion's Out­ standing Catholic Youth of the Year. He is MauI'ice J. Blackwell of Baltimore, a senior at Towson Catholic High School. The Outstanding Cat hoi i e Young Adult of· the Year is Francis J. Darigon, Jr., a senior at Providence College, and· past national president of the Catho­ lic Youth Organization. Announcement of the Catholic Youth and Catholic Young Adult of the Year awards was made here by Msgr. Frederick J. Stevenson, director of the Youth Department, National Catholic Welfare Conference, which spon­ sors the annual selections. Blackwell and Darigan w~re chosen from among nominees by the national presidents of the CYO, the National Newman. Club Federation, and the Na­ tional Federation of Catholic College Students. 'Mr Cyo' Blackwell, president of his senior class at Towson Catholic, has been active in Baltimore CYO programs for several years. He was recently honored as "Mr. CYO" of the Baltimore archdiocese. . A member of the Future Teachers of America, he has won awards for acting, debating, ora­ tory and music. Msgr. Clare J. O'Dwyer, youth director for the Baltimore arch­ diocese, said that because Black­ well is a Negro he has been sub­ jected to the myriad discrimina­ tions that race has suffered.

British Catholics Show Increase ' LONDON (NC) - The Catho­ lic population of England and Wales rose by 101,000 during the past year, according to the official Catholic Directory for 1964. The Catholic population is put at 3,827,000 compared with 3,­ 726,500 last year. As last year, when it was sug­ gested that increasing moves toward Christian unity were having a bad effect on conver­ sions, adult conversions again declined from 14,174 the pre­ vious year to 13,280. The directory gives an estimate total of 799,150 Catholics in Scotland, 7,000 more than the previous year. It also estimates that of the 550,357,000 people in the B r i tis h Commonwealth, nearly 41,000,000 are Catholic. Floating Populat;~The directory's figures are generally recognized to be the lowest common denominator for practicing Catholics in this country. Gathered by the direc­ tory editors themselves from parish and diocesan returns of known permanent residents they take no account of the big floating population of practicing Catholics. These are especially in the industrial areas and include . immigrants from Ireland and from the British Commonwealth and also the less enthusiastic "occasional" Catholics who keep out of contact with parochial af­ fairs.

Tops $24 Million ROCKVILLE CENTER (NC) - A Rockville Centre diocesan . drive to· raise money for four new high schools has gone over the $24 million mark. The four planned schools will enroll 9,600 students, more than double the nur.lber accommodated by ex­ isting Catholic high schools in the diocese here on Long Island.

Nevertheless, he said, "tMs boy neither stopped trying nor soured, but eontinued working for Catholic ideals with real Christian charity. He is not only accepted by our youth but looked to for real leadership." Blackwell will receive the award as Outstanding Catholic Youth in Baltimore in February. Darigan, a resident of Provi­ dence, is president of the senior class at Providem~e College, where he is majoring in political science. He is a past president of his parish and diocesan CYOs, and in November, 1961, was elected national CYO president at the organization's convention in Buffalo, N. Y. He held the post until last November. At the Nov. 14 to 17. national CYO convention in New York he gave the keynote ad­ dress. Father Charles W. McConnell, youth director for the Provi~ dence diocese, praised Darigan's "constant sense of balance and modesty." The Outstanding Catholic Young Adult Award will be presented to him in Providence in February.

'Nood Ie Priest' Gets Mochine SOLON (NC) - Msgr. John Romaniello, M.M., head of the Catholic Relief Service - Na­ tional Catholic Welfare Confer­ ence operations in Hong Kong, received a $20,000, 65-foot noodle drying machine from the Weiss Noodle Co. here in Ohio. Msgr. Romaniello, wid ely known as "the noodle priest," said some 400,000 refugees in Hong Kong are fed about one million pounds of noodles each month. The noodles are made from surplus U. S. wheat flour, powdered milk and cornmeal, shipped to Hong Kong by the overseas relief agency of U. S. Catholics. The new machine, Msgr. Romaniello said, will dry 20,000 pounds daily and replace the old, slow process of sun­ drying. Bound by Hunger Albert A. Weiss, president· of the noodle company, met Msgr. Romaniello two years ago when U1e "noodle priest" begged for old equipment at a National Macaroni Manufacturers Asso­ ciation convention. Msgr. Romaniello said the re­ lief program in Hong Kong is bound only by a man's hunger. He added: "My motto is the family that eats together, also stays together."

Approve New York State Supreme Court's Home Tutoring. Ruling NEW YORK (NC)-A CaU1o­ lie school superintendent and the national· president of Citi­ zens for Educational Freedom have hailed a New York State Supreme Court ruling" that pub. lic school officials are obliged to provide home tutoring for physically handicapped children enrolled in parochial schools. Justice Manuel W. Levine's decision reversed a policy estab_ lished in 1952 by John P. Jehu, legal counsel to the State Edu­ cation Department. Jehu said such tutoring violated the State Constitution's ban on "direct and indirect" aid to church-reo lated schools. Judge Levine said there is a distinction between aid to the schools and aid to the pupil. "The benefits of home teach­

Sees Brazil Key To Latin Future SAN ANTONIO (NC) - A Brazilian priest said here that "as Brazil goes in the near future, so goes the rest of Latin America." Father John De Jong cited Brazil's population, size and re­ sources-all far exceeding those of any other Latin nation-and said that "communists are mak­ ing their greatest effort to bring Brazil into their grip." Here on a U. S. speaking tour, Father De Jong, a priest of the Archdiocese of Ribeirao Preto, stressed the "vital concern" of the Church in Brazil for U1e welfare of the masses. For Handful of Rich "Capitalism in Brazil," he said, "has created a world of wealth, power and privilege for a small handful of rich people." He said that two per cent of the people own some 50 per cent of the land, and "that's not social justice." Father De· Jong was optimis­ tic about the Alliance for Prog­ ress in Brazil. "The Alliance is doing mnch better than you 'think. It just takes a little time to show its results," he said.

Bishop Connolly Reflects on Council

Continued from Page One thing he didn't know before. That would be news." Because of better attitudes and arrangements, the Second Ses­ sion coverage was much im­ proved. The press "knew what was under discussion and they did have an analysis of what was said and they were definite­ ly in the situation where they could speak knowingly, wisely "' "' "' and beautifully." There was not much "fancy gossip in as much as there was an official release." Blessed Mother An uninformed and sensa­ tional-bent American writer did hurt the Council's purpose wIth attempting to attract attention by advertising that the "Council Downgrades Blessed Moher." "That hurt. She wasn't down­ graded. You might say the Lord Himself was downgraded: we have no special treatise dealing with God the Father, God the Holy Ghost or God the Son. Why should there be a special treatise d e a lin g with the Blessed Mother? She is a member of the Church," the Bishop stated. "It was a matter of putting her (Mary) right where she is," the prelate continued, "as a model of Christians, the ideal, the one who responded most beautifully to the graces of God." He ended by saying that the schema arrangement only "sets the relationship right." Council Conflicts The practice of grouping bish­ ops into "schools" and labelinl them was scored by the Bishop. No one ill consistently a member of anyone so-called group. "I, in my own thoughts, in my politi­ eal affiliations, in my thinking in the Church," explained the Bishop, "I'd say I am a conserva­ tive, I am a liberal, I am a pro­ gressive, i am a traditionalUtt and what have you. It depends on what you are talking about, the importance of it, the appli­ cation of it, and the lining up of one side and the other. Oo",", It is unfair, it is untrue, to say that the Church is divided into liberals and progressives." Often, on the occasion of • vote, a tremendous majority was recorded. Some refered to the favorable voters as therefore being "progressives." Many Ita­ lians, Spanish and Curia pre­ Ip'-- voted along with the majo­ rit~'. On the final liturgy vote, only four bishops objected, "does that sound as if all the Italians were conservative and every­ .body else was a liberal 119­ called?" "Just because Cardinal so­ and-so seems to be holding the hne, or seems to be resisting, he's supposed to be terrible," the Bishop complained. "The man has a concept of his own and he has certain rules that he wants to follow "'"'"' Aren't men al­ lowed to act according to their convictions?" The Bishop agreed that the whole point of reli­ gion was to obey one's con­ science. Roman Cuda After explaining the organiza­ tin·· and work of the Roman Curia and comparing it to the Cabinet of the U.S. President, the Bishop emphasised that it was the Pope who makes the decisions. Through the Curia, the Pope simply wants basic information on which he can make decisions. However, "that's ~hat he hears and he hears only what he hears." Just because both Pope john and Pope Paul did not sweap everyone out of office does not mean that both Popes approved completely the work of the Curia, its methods, etc. It surely does not mean that the Curia members share his infallibility. Both the Popes asked for .md promised reforms in the Curia. If some Cardinal answered criti­ cism with: "Well, you're not at­

tacking me; you're not attacking my· congregation; you're at­ tacking the Holy Father," that would be "straining it a bit." "Both Pope John and Pope Paul did say that we need to have· what you might call a 'face-lifting' in the Church - a bringing up to date. Now that includes the various commissions and the various organizations "' "'"' just as well as it includes the administration pf the Diocese of Fall River." Adaptation "Times change and the max­ im says that we change with them too"'"' '" You hear a great stress all through this (Council) about the pastoral approach, the pastoral approach, the pastoral approach. We are not satisfied with making laws. It is a matter of inspiring, urging, all of our people, the priests, the bishops, the archbishops, the cardinals and the Holy Father himself to do all we can together and indi­ vidually to put our lives and our whole disposition into a con­ dition that-you might say-if you looked into the mirror of Christ's life and you looked into the mirror of your own life, we would be happy enough to thank God for some resemblance: that there is no conflict, no contra­ diction"' "' "' that's aggiornamen­ to." For that, we must do like Christ, we must adapt ourselves and our methods to the people, to the times. "We aren't trying to do' something as if there was • book of Code of Instructions set down and we are to slavishly follow it. Our Lord didn't de that * "' "' I mean, you can't take a prescription that's written out and apply it slavishly. The Lord gave us intelligence, He gave us brains, He gave us an ability to fit in to the need of our times." Liturcy "Part of our trouble in litur­ gical observances that we're trying to get away from, is that there was a straight-jacket more or less imposeli in the VIII, IX through the XIV to the XVI centuries. And we're still going on in that tradition. And that tradition was a departure from the old Apostolic tradition of the Church," the Bishop explained. He outlined the new liturgical emphasis as "to go back and ap­ preciate the simplicity and the catholic interest that they had in ancient days: where all dif­ ferent needs were prayed for, where the congregation joined in all these things." The work ahead is the"getting away from this secrecy that still seems to dominate the liturgy of the Church." Latin- Vernacular "In the early Church until about the middle of the 2nd Century, the official language of the liturgy was Greek, even in Rome," the prelate continued. "Latin came in only because the people who 'were assisting at the services didn't understand Greek • "' "' If Latin was accepted be­ cause it was a better vehicle for bringing in intelligence and un­ derstanding to the people, why should there be such a stew about another language if it would have the same effect? English, for instance." The Bishop pointed to the riches reaped when SS. Cyril and Methodius were permitted to draw up a ritual in the ver­ nacular-as part of the Western Rite. However, it was a black page for Church history when such an adaptation was not per­ mitted for the missionaries in China. "China was on the verge of a great conversion"'"'"' the great important people, even the Emperor, were interested in Christianity. But the missioners were told that they had to carry out in all its detail the Latin Western Ritual."'"'"' You might say it killed the wonderful 9p.. portunity for bringing a great many people into the Ghurcl1

Papal Pilgrimage Inspires Anglican Unity Move LONDON (NC) - Angli­ can Arc h b ish 0 p Michael Ramsey of Canterbury on 'the eve of Pope Paul VI's pilgrimage, announced the set­ ting up of an Anglican commis­ sion on Roman Catholic rela­ tions.

NCAA Changes To Affect

Substitution and Equipment

Thurs., Jan. 9, 1964

Choose Catholic

AII--A merican

By Jaek KiIleavy If the NCAA Rules Committee heeds the recommenda­ tion of the 24-member Rules Committee of the American Football Coaches Association, the return to free and un­ limited 8ubstitution will become a reality in the 1964 season. Don't bet on it, however. For It's no secret that the minor • number of years now a leagues are in dire trouble across majority of the nation's the nation M a result of which mentors, especially those at great impetus has been given to larger lIChools, have favored the resurrection of the old rule, dis­ carded in '52, w hie h per­ mitted tree and unlimited sub­ stitution at any time when the ball was not in play. The NCAA Rules Commit­ tee during the last decade has va i '1ly sought an effective compromise bet wee D. limited all" unlimited substitution. The 1963 version proved totally in­ adequate and its complexities harried coaches to the' extent that even before the 8eaSOD started, the COMervative Ivy League group asked permission to shelve the regulation, Yet, the NCAA Committee which is due to begin deliberations en Saturday in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, is also keenly aware 01. the pOS9ible consequences of a return to the so-called platoon system. Jack Curtice, Chainnan of the eoaches' group, and himself a member of the NCAA Committee ill '52 when the free and un­ limited rule as scrapped, feels certain that the present rule will be modified, but he was reluctant to predict the return to a completely permissive sYS­ tem. Also recommended for eli­ mination by the coaches was the prohibition of sideline coaching which just about everyone in­ dulges in either overtly or by signal. Sideline CoaehiDr: The intent here is to recog­ nize reality and remove the stigma of unethical and un­ sportsmanlike conduct which the rule book brands sideline coaching. As a matter of fact, the rule was never completely en­ forceable, anyway. Sure, the coach that's hollering a play is easily observed, but what about the guy who has an elaborate system of signals? The latter, if more discreet, certainly is no less guilty than his demonstrative counterpart. It is anticipated that a 20 minute hal f tim e intermission will be adopted to provide suf­ ficient time for the extrava­ ganzas that have become vogue. And the controversial equipment rule relative to hand and fore­ arm covering is also expected to come under examination. The interpretation of just what was and was not legal hand and fore­ arm padding gave umpires and trainers fits last Fall and it may just result in a return to a ban on protective hand and fore­ arm covering of any type. Liaison Man Another new s w 0 r thy note emanating from the NCAA con­ clave was the announcement by Commissioner Ford Frick of the appointment of Ed Doherty as liaison man between the major leagues and the U.s. Baseball Federation, a group controlled by the NCAA baseball coaches. Doherty, a former Providence newspaperman and long time minor league executive who more recently carried the gen­ eral manager's portfolio for the Washington Senators, is ideally tlUited for the job and his ap­

pointment was hailed bY the eoneae I1'OUP.

the colleges as proving ...grounds for future major leaguers, much after the pattern of football and basketball. In order to effect this realistically, hl?wever, opportu­ nities for Summer competition have to be afforded collegians 01' a much broader basis than presently exists. There is cur­ rently a move underway to es­ tablish a couple of college Sum­ mer circuits, one in New En­ gland, the other in Pennsylvania. These, presuma,bly, are similar in nature to the type of organ­ ization that the Red Sox and Brooklyn--it was that long ago­ attempted to set in motion on the Cape, unsuccessfully. Theirs, if memory serves correct, was :QOt to be 8 college circuit aa such. Anyway, the idea. was nixed by the Commissioner'. of­ fice and that was that. In the ensuing years, Sllmmer cireuita, such as the Northern League, the Blackstone Valley League, the Canadian Maritime Leagues passed into oblivion. The Cape League which III ita ,bayday attracted more than iU share of the more talented col­ lege lads has shown signs of re­ surgence in recent years and haa taken up a good bit of the slack occasioned by the demise of the above-mentioned circuits. The big thing that colleges want from professional ball, of course, is the establishment of a draft law which would preclude raid­ ing of campus talent that has led to strained relations between pro ball and the, collegiate level. Sad Showinr: The less said about the Patri­ ots' debacle in San Diego the better. The balmy atmosphere must have thawed our heroes to a mellifluous state. The ·appaling aspect was the consummate ease with which the Chargers tore the vaunted Boston defense to shreds. It was a totally unex­ pected development in view of the closeness of the two regular season contests between the two clubs. While viewing the game we were reminded of Pete Retzlaff's statement earlier this week to the effect that a match of the NFL champion and the AFL op­ posite member would become a must. We subscribe to this but after catching a bit of the second place NFL joust between the Packers and the Browns, the embryo AFL would be advised not to proceed too hastily in ehallenging the senior circuit. Two spectaculars yet remain for the devotees of the pro grid game. The NFL All-Star Game is scheduled for this coming Sunday and the AFL one wcek hence. Both games will be played on the West Coast where weather should prove a positive factor. The conditions under which the NFL title game and the AFL's Eastern Division's match were played were cer­ tainly not conducive to football as it wa" meant to be played. The hardy faithful jammed the turnstiles on both occasions, however, so that there's little likelihood of a change in the offing.

Interfaith Project Catholic-Anglican College Idea Moves

Forward in British Columbia

VICTORIA (NC) - Efforts are inching forward here to put into effect an extraordinary in­ terfaith project, a joint Catholic­ Anglican college affiliated to a tax-supported provincial univer­ sity. A Catholic-Anglican commit­ tee submitted the proposal to the University of Victoria's semite. The senate has appointed three professors to meet for further discussions with the Catholic­ Anglican group. If approved, the college would be the first jointly sponsored Catholic _ Anglican college in North America and probably in the world. The proposal came from Cath. olic Bishop Remi Joseph De Roo of Victoria and Anglican Arch­ bishop Harold Sexton of British Columbia. The first move was made by the Catholic prelate less than three weeks after his enthrone­ ment as Bishop in December, 1962. He approached Archbishop Sexton who approved the idea. "At first we were undecided whether to set up two denomina-

The college would have ac­ commodations for about 100 stu­ dents who would share class­ rooms, a library, a common room and dining facilities. Students would take the usual credit courses offered by the University of Victoria, plus one or more theological courses of­ fered in their own college by teachers from their own faith. If the university approves the proposal, the new college must seek a charter from the' British Columbia legislature.

Historian Scores Wrong Image Of Poland

View College Aid Final Legislation For Education .,

PHILADELPHIA (NC)­ A history professor charged here that "glaring errors" exist in contemporary college

WASHINGTON (NC) ­ When the college aid bill was · enacted in the closing days of the first session of Con­


gress it was hailed as the first major piece of education legis­ lation since the 1958 National Defense Education Act. The NDEA itself was extel1ded for another year, and legislation helping medical and dental schools, vocational schools and education in impacted areas was also passed. The line-up is im­ pressive, and it may represent about all of the major educa­ tion bills that will get through this Congress. This is the belief of at least some well informed observers, as the 88th Congress prepares to return here for its second and final sessfon. Expect Unusual Session It is thought Congress will · not enact primary and secondary. school aid measures now before · it. There is likelihood that there will be some aid to education if · Congress launches a legislative attack on poverty, as President · Johnson will propose. What form this all might take is not yet known. This will be an unusual ses­ sion. This is an election year, with all its implications. One-' third of the Senators and all the 435 Representatves are to be elected in November, 1964. and, they can be expected to act and vote with an eye to that time. Moreover, Congress will be' dealing with the policies of a· new President, one who is well known to them, to be sure, but one who is filling out the last' quarter of an earlier four-year mandate. The country will have emerged from the period of of­ ficial mourning over the assassi­ nation of P.resident Kennedy, and whatever respectful "truce" existed between the Capitol and tt> White House will be no nlore.. Touchy Matter It might be thought that pas­ sage of the college aid bill and extension of' NDEA would open the gates for education legisla­ tion. This is not necessarily so. Defeat of the college aid bill . a year ago was generally re­ garded as a mistake, and some of those who helped bring about . its earlier downfall did not op- . pose it this time. The NDEA bill is popular "back home" and had . an appeal for the lawmakers. Aid to primary and secondary . education, especially when it is limitecl strictly to public schools, is a touchy matter, particularly in an election year.

Kusielewicz.was critical of the average U. S. college textbook's treatment of the history of Po­ land during the period from 1918 to 1939. He ,cited' authors who charged Woodrow Wilson with a perversion of history when he advocated independ­ ence for Poland after World War I. He said some texts caricatured the Polish people as "priest­ ridden," "bi ~oted" and anti­ Semitic. Asks Re-examiation He charged distortions and use of materials lrom "manufactured sources." Had historians checked some of the assertions that were handed dOW11, he said, "they would not l.ave beer found in archival sources." Kusielewicz asked for a re-ex­ amination of the history of Po­ land as found in contemporary college "texts. Existing inaccura­ cies, he said, "have produced considerable confusion as to the real background of the history of modern Poland, and from this confusion segments of the Amer­ ican public--:-and even the U.
