Middle School

F,or Taunton

A complete reorganization of the Catholic elementary schools in Taunton was envisioned in a proposal made public last night by Rev. Patrick J. O'Neill, Superintendent of Schools for the diocese of Fall River. The proposal was described to a group of priests, teachers, and parishioners representing each of the seven parish elementary schools in Taunton. Father O'Neill's plan calls for establishment of a new middle school for grade 6, 7, and 8 in the present Msgr. Coyle High School building. That building will become available next September when Coyle High School merges with Bishop Cassidy High School. In the new plan, all seven Catholic elementary schools would dliscontinue their upper grades, and send their students. to the new central middle school. Parishes would continue to operate their own schools for grades 1 to 5, but the possibility of some of these schools merging with one another was left open. Turn to Page Six

Sunday Opens Week 01 Prayer for POWs For two years Teresa Getchell of St. Margaret's parish, Buzzards Bay, has been living in a limbo' of ignorance concerning the fate of her husband, Capt. Paul E. Getchell, shot down over Laos two years ago. "We have had no word about him at all," said the young mother of two children, Karen, 5, and Gregory, 6. "All I can tell the children is that their daddy is lost in the jungle." Today Mrs. Getchell is spearheading a statewide letterwriting campaign to heads of states holding American prisoners of war. She said the week of Jan. 24 through 31 has been designated "Write a Letter" week by the National League of Families of Prisoners and Missing in Southeast Asia. "We tell people all we're asking is five minutes and .25," said Mrs. G~tchell. "The five minutes is the time it takes to write a letter, and the quarter is for air mail postage to Hanoi." Letters should be brief, she said, and should ask for release of information concerning pris.· oners of war and men missing

in action. They should also urge that such men should receive humane treatment. Government negotiations for prisoner release or information have not been successful, noted Mrs. Getchell, but since largescale letter writing and sending , of petitions has begun, world opinion has been a factor in influencing Hanoi to release films and information, and forward mail to prisoners' families. Mrs. Getchell said sl1e sponsored a Cape Cod letterwriting campaign in October. She has appeared on television and given speeches urging cooperation with the project. Area chairmen for the' campaign, from whom bumper stickers urging support are also 'available, .are Antone Shaker, 366 Freelove Street, Fall River; the American Red Cross, 52 Ash Street, New Bedford; and Mrs. Getchell at P. O. Box 93, East Wareham. "I've been d~ing this work for six months," said Mrs. Getchell. "Before I felt so frustrated doing nothing. Now at least I feel I'm doing what I can." Turn to Page Twenty

WASHINGTON (NC)-Declaring that Frito Bandito advertisements have "gone far enough" in stereotyping Mexican-Americans as undesirables, the head of a Mexican-American group said the mischievous "bandito" is headed to court. Domingo Nick Reyes, director of the National Mexican- , American Anti-Defamation Committee, told NC News his organization would file a $610 million malicious defamation of character suit against the corn chip company that sponsors the ads, its advertising agency and two major communications networks. Defendants in the suit to be filed ,in a federal district court in Washington, D. C., include the Frito-Lay Company of Dal1as, Tex., the Foot,' Cone and Belding ad agency and the .Columbia Broadcasting System and the American Broadcasting Company. The anti-defamation committee, Reyes' said, is asking $100 in damages for each of the 6.1 million Mexican-American men, women and children in the United' States.' ,Other MexicanAmerican media' groups, he added, had joined the committee in the suit. In Bad Light , Reyes'said Frito-Lay officials had reneged on -an announcementmade last February that the company had decided to phase' out the "BandJto" ads because of pressure from Mexican-_ American ·groups. He said members of that ethnic group had objected that the "Bandito" 'presented the Spanish-speaking in a bad light, depicting them 115 thieving, lazyand shiftless, always clothed in sombreros and toting pistols and not like anyone who would be likely to' get ahead.

Cardinal Urges Return fo God CHICAGO (NC) - Cardinal John Cody of Chicago told a TV interviewer here that contempo-

rary problems from drugs to the housing crisis can be solved by a ......... ' return to religion and to God. The cardinal predicted that the majority of modern young people "will come through" despite their involvement in personar and political crises. Asked what he thought was his role, the cardinal said "to help solve the urgent problems of today," citing his work at a summit conference called "to stop the trouble that was here." The cardinal was referring to the meetings at city hall that resulted in the ending of Dr. Martin Luther King's openhousing marches in the Summer of 1966. The cardinal added, "Times have changed, particularly in the racial issue. People have changed. They want more au" tonomy. I agreed with them.

OBE'RAMMERGAU (NC}-Qrgan.izers of. the Oberammergau Passion Play denied charges that the 1970 version of the play was biased against the Jews, Toni Preisinger, the play's diM rector, said the play followed the Bible and history. His com· ments .were incluued in a document entitled "Oberammergau 70·8Q" .recently published' here; Mayor Ernst Zwink, also writing. in the' publication, rejected the charge that the play' was anti-Semitic. He said that charge . was "trumped up" and that men of .goodwill stood by Oberammergau. Preisinger linked the criticism to the American Jewish Committee, which had pressured for changes in the script" which it claimed were prejudicial against Jews. ' . Preisinger said that the 1970 play was seen by 530,000' persons, who, he claimed; approved of the present version. He added that visitors to Oberammergau had urged ·the play' organizers not to give in to the AJC's demands,

CHICAGO (NC)-The American Catholic school system is not in danger of financial collapse but is getting stronger and better, according to a Methodist seminary professor. "There is no objective evidence that Catholic parochial schools are in financial difficulties," says Dr. John M. Swomley Jr., professor of social ethics and philosophy of religion at the St. Paul School of Theology in Kansas City, Mo. In the cover story in the Jan. 13 issue of Christian Century, interdenominational weekly published here, Dr. Swomley quoted various Catholic educational leaders as denying that the parochial school system might close down without public aidincluding Cardinal Terrence Cooke of New York and the priests in charge of several major diocesan school systems where some schools have been closed or consolidated. The article noted that consolidated schools "appear in the statistics as closed schools and therefore create the impression that the whole Catholic school system is in crisis." "The parochial school system is in no' danger of collapse but is merely sloughing off inefficient units," Dr. Swomley stated. "Such units are most often found in rural areas with declining population, or in the' inner city where black nonCatholics have replaced the white Roman Catholics who fled to the ,~~b\1r.b~,'~" ': '.

Those factors, plus a Catholic population shift to the suburhs have- given church 'school svstems a chance to consolidate, and o~t for fewer children in each class, Dr. Swomley concluded. He quoted Father C. Albert Kooh president of the National Catholic Educational Association. as saying that the number of teachers employed in Catholic schools fl,ctllalIv increac;ed in the years 1963-69, while pupil enrollment declined. "It seems to me," Father Koob was quoted. "if you were going to pull out all the stops and discontinue 'your school svstem then you would have a ~arked

The form will then be reviewed again by consultants representing various aspects of ligious education. Before distribl,ltion, th~ questionnaire will be field-tested by CARA in at least three localities, including the District of Columbia. Father Tobin said the national center was attempting to offer diocesan religious education offices a means to obtain "a profile of the needs of their catechists." He said the center's National 'Congress of Religious Education, ' " set for Oct. 27-31 in Miami, Fla., would concentrate on teacher in- , terests and needs.

Z.P.G.

There is currently rising in the nation a Z.P.G. movement which argues that Zero Population Gr~wth is neces- . sary if this country is to ,overcome its sbcial and'" environmental problen{s. And many Z.P.G. atlvocates urge birth control di~ics of every type and the, ~vailability I of I abortion as ways of controlling population] A severe blow has .been struck at th~ir arguments by th~ United States Government chief prO~SSional dem.,ographer. This population expert, Conrad F. Taeuber, has said that· social and economic factors and the distributi9n· of population are much more impo ant than the growth of population. I i Mr. Taeuber pointed out that "changfng standards ~nd habits, in activities, tech?ology and I the style: of hfe have much more to do With the accumulation and disposition of waste 'materials and pollutartts than does the- number of persons involved." For eJl:ample, wh:ile the population increased 13 per cent in .tHe sixties, the total volume of goods and services grewJ 60 per cept. From 1930 to 1968 the population rose 63 er cent whHe petroleum consumption went up 300 per certt and natural I : gas consumption 800 per cent. , .In ot~er words, ,the ~tabilization or de9rease of p~pUlatIo~ Will not. au~omatlcally ,mean a decrease in consumptIOn of many Items or a change from the present high standard of living. ~ I Mr. Taeuber said that "pollution, high' crime rat~s, transportation problems and other social ill are not primarily a result of our rate of population gr wth." Trartsportation experts, for example, attribute any of th~ir problems to the one person-one car m~nt~lity of commuters. And if New York City were emptie~ of its many millions tomorrow, these would be replacedl by an eqJal ~umber of millions wishing to go "w.here t~e action i~." , Mr. Taeuber further points out t~at pro~lems of providing jobs, equal opportuI!ity, adequate etlucation, en, hancing rural economies are problems that! will riot be , ~olv~d by decreasing population. "A lower r~te, of grow,th )S I!0t an automatic soluti<m to the proble1's which colnfront us." _, '," ' : It is always a temptation, as Gilbert !<jeith Chester-' t?n once observed, when confronted 'by three hat,S and five persons to arrive at a solution by cutting off two' heads. But, a progressive and truly 'civilized Jociety solves th~ problems by searching out ways to' firtd two more hats., I' I - The solution of problems by attacking pe~soris 'smacks too much of. a '.'final· solution" apprpach, ~allS into' t~e trap of placmg mto the hands of government or committees the most sacred elements of human life and activity.

general position of the', diocese that enrollment must be curtailed in view of the shortage of teaching Sisters. Fr. O'Neill also pointed out that it would' be somewhat more expensive to operate a good middle school program, so tha t a higher tuition would have to be anticipated. It was also stressed that the parishes of Taunton would have to consider themselves as 'responsible for this school as for elementary their- 'individual schools, and would have to insure the diocese that through tuition and parish subsidy the per-pupil cost of operating the school would be met. The new plan allows for each of the individual parishe~ to continue' to operate its own' , school for grades 'I 'to 5;, However, diocesan officialS point out that six of the' seven s~hools--' exist in pairs, in, which two schools are lo'cated with'in a block of each ot!:Jer in three separate schoo,ls of the city. Fr:' O'Neill suggested that the.se schools should eventually consider the advantages of joining together and housing their students in one or other school. Apart from the obvious economies of plant maintenance, it. was stressed that better education would also be achieved through more flexible grouping or the larger number of students in each grade. Parish representatives were asked at last night's meeting to consider the new proposal on the parish level, and report their decision to the diocese as soon as possible. If the plan were to be implemented for next September, the 'decision would have to be made within a matter of weeks. ' Father O'Neill pointed o'ut that this should not be a completely new idea for the people of Taunton, since a Special Task Force has been' studying the Catholic schools of Taunton for ,the past year, and has, had OP,en discussions in each parish. He feels confident he ,noted that al~ though there is a certain pressure .of time, the final decision as to whether to go ahead, with the plan can be made within matter of weeks.

Propose Inactive Pri'ests Retur" KEARNY (NC) - A return to the ministry by all inactive priests who desire it, even if they are married" was proposed here by a special committee of Newark archdiocesan Priests' Senate. The proposal was among 12 recommendatione by the senate's ad hoc committee of concern which had been charged with drafti~g a prograI!1 to' change the current "negative' climate" toward priests who have left active ministry. Each proposal will be put to a vote when the senate meets again Feb. 1. Four of the proposals,' senate' spokesmen explained, are in·

tended only as an expression of opinion on the direction it is .believed the Church ought to take. Among them is the pro· posal for the reintegration .of priests into the ministry, even where they have married. Other suggestions of this na~ ture are for the ordination 'of married men, discontinuation of the laicization process and admission to the diaconate for non·' functioning priests wishing to serve in that role. The report ·was presented to the senate by Father Thomas E. Davis, chaplain at Montclair State. College; on behalf' of the 12-member committee on which four former priests served.

SAN ANTONIO (NC)-Retired San Antonio Archbishop Rober~ E, Lucey told members of the Campaign for Human Development's national committee here . that· the apatHy of Christians lies behind the continued. existence of poverty. Pointing out that state and federal governments have spent billions to eradicate poverty but .. that it still exists, the archbishop warned commit~ee members not to plan on ending poverty by next November. Describing poverty as a curse, a tragedy and a disgrace, Archbishop Lucey pointed out that the Catholic Church has always tried to meet the .needs of the poor by establishig. hospitals. orphanages and other charitable institutions. But. he added, poverty still' has not bee'n conquered. "We've got to talk to the world. Talking in the pulpit Qn Sunday morning. is necessary, but it is, not enough. it won't reach the world," he said.

ually the moviegoing public has, been subject to more contrivance in the last decade than in all the previous 'years the, movies were in existence. We have been inundated with the futility of life, the crass, the ugly, the immoral, the hopeless; moviegoers looking back on the movies of the '60s will most assuredly think back on us as a lost generation if they really believe that the movies chronicled our age." Actually ~he movie~ ~on­ trived to show us the ,very worst we had to offer because they felt that the worst was' what' we wanted to 'see: Escapism Wanted The decline of the movie industry says as much as anything about, how 'wrong they were about. what the people wanted. Granted., there ,were segments of the community who were looking to be scandalized and shocked, but for most of us the movies rem;iined as a mixture of escapism and pure entertainment. Love Story proves by its fantastic box office success that there., is, sti,ll an audience for escapIsm. , .' . , ,,' I am sure we will now' see a flood of movies modeled after Love Story, and I am equally sure that they will be terrible fare. Any picture attempting to capitalic:e on the audience loses a great deal in the making because people are guessing wha't will sell rather than what makes a good movie. Hollywood has a long history of subverting the art of' movie-making to the art of making a dollar, but at least the fare. although just as unrealistic; will be, more palatable for the American viewer. 0

Assumption, Osterville; and Our. Lady of Victory, Centerville. Forty jun~ors from Sacred Hearts Academy, Fall River, presented the program for over 200 students from the Cape pat;ishes, drawing on material originally prepared for their annual school retreat. The three Cape parishes have combined their high school CCD programs "to provide a sense of com-' munity among the teenagers of the three churches and to' increase the availability of priests', Sisters and lay cate- , chists in the' program," according to Sister Christine Marie, MSBT of St. rrands Missionary Cenade, Hyannis. In the top picture, Cape youth and their Fall River guests prepare a table for celebration of the liturgy.

NEW YORK (NC) - Privatecolleges, including church-related institutions, "will no longer be able to serve higher education and the nation with strength unless significant aid is soon forthcoming." This conclusion was based on a survey of 75 per cent of the country's 762 private, accredited four-year colleges and universities. It was. sponsored by the Association of American Colleges. These institutions, according to a report issued with the results of the survey, will have a combined operating deficit in the . 'current fiscal year totalling about $87 million. Officials of the association, noting that the survey was representative of all sectors of pri·

vate higher education, called the study the most comprehensive on the fiscal status of private colleges. The survey's report made the following points: Grants made directly by the federal government to private colleges for general use or physical facilities were termed the type preferred by those institutions. However, aid in "virtually any form," including grants and loans given directly to students, also appeared acce·ptable. 'Getting Redder' The most popular means of reducing a deficit was to borrow or transfer money from unappropriated funds, while the generally accepted way to head off deficits was to increase tuition.

The granting of .student aid was placing a considerable burden on the private schools. During the last four years, this has increased by $10 million, a boost of 904 per cent. The report concluded that "private colleges and universities are apprehensive, and!hey have reason to be. Most colleges in the red are staying in the red, . and many are getting redder, while colleges in the black are generally growing grayer." The increase in deficits, according to the association's research director, William W. Jellema, took on a quickened pace after 1968. Factors in the rise of the deficit were increased costs for instruction, building, maintenance and security.

ST. JOSEPH, ATTLEBORO A whist party sponsored by the priests of the parish will be held Saturday night, Jan. 30 in the church hall.

A penance service for third p,raders will take place at 7:30 Tuesday night, Feb. 2. Senior citizens are invited to card parties held at 1:30 every Friday afternoon. Cash prizes and refreshments. HOLY NAME, FALL RIVER

A malasada supper and dance are scheduled for Saturday night, Feb. 20 in the church hall. Supper will be served from 6 to 8, with dancing to follow until 11. There will be an open meeting Sunday, Jan. 31 to make plans for this event. Representatives of all parish societies are asked to attend. The Children of Mary will hold a cake sale following each Mass Sunday, Jan. 24. Donations are requested for any kind of pastry. A CYO potluck supper will be held at 6:30 Saturday night, Jan. 23 in the hall. Entertainment will be by "Mr. Vincent," hypnotist.

A folk Mass will be celebrated at 5 Saturday afternoon, Jan. 23.

MOUNT CARMEL, NEW BEDFORD Mrs. Lucy Marks and Mrs. Beverly Souza are in charge of the cake sale to be conducted under the sponsorship of the . PTA at the Stop and Shop on Rockdale Ave. on Saturday. The eighth grade was awarded the attendance banner for the most parents present at the last PTA meeting. Debra Ferro, Olga Sardinha, Aim Vasconcellos, David Bates and Anthony Ferreira were panelists who discussed with eighth graders the courses available in their respective schools, namely, Dartmouth High, Stang, Holy Family, Roosevelt Jr. High and New Bedford Vocational. The executive board acted as refreshment committee.

In a letter to Niagara students and their parents, the Vincention priest said he regretted that the trustees' action might displease some parents and students.

Parents Support Colleg·e Decision NIAGARA FALLS (NC)-The president of Niagara University here has expressed "full accord" with a board of trustees' decision not to allow cooed visitation privileges in' dormitory rooms. Father Kenneth F. •Slattery also expressed support of the board's decision to retain "the Catholic 'nature of Niagara," even if it means sacrificing $250,000 annually in state aid.

"To those who may be gravely dissatisfied," Father Slattery said, "I would suggest consider-' ation of a transfer to an institution more to their liking." Asked whether he thought many studel)ts would take him up on the suggestion, Father Slattery told NC News: "The opinion around is no." "The reaction so far has been good," he said. "I've been receiving letters and phone calls from parents indicating their agreement with the stand of the university."

It is one of the most important sections of Paul's letter., It gave " us pieces of the Christian doctrine about what will happen to the souls of the just between the time of their deaths and the Lord's second coming at the end of the world. It also gives us pieces of the 'best ,Christian spirituality concerning 'how we , should face death. Notice how positive Paul is in . this' section. In 4:14 he wrote; "For we know 1 that God; who raised. the Lord Jesus to life, will also raise us up with 'Jesus' and bring us, together with 'you, 'into his presence."

Small, intimate celebrations in private homes were normal according to the Acts of the Apostles: In later times and cultures large, solemn' ceremonies were cherished. Full active. participation of all the faithful' ";"as taken for granted in earlier days of Christianity, whereas silent, awefiIled, distance marked the Eucharist in later centuries. While early groups of Christians enjoyed the presence of Jesus asa friend at their table, ,'other' equally devout Christians knelt in solitary wonder before the Lord whom they dared not receive but once a year. As the celebration differed from place to place and century to century, .so did the Church's understanding and interpretation of her' experience. This, too, is already evident in the New Testament. The Gospels and epistles at one time describe the "breaking of bread" in terms of the risen Christ with His friends, at another time they view the Eucharist as a sacrificial offering. Sometimes the stress is on the

meal, through which those who share the body and blood ot Christ become intimately united with Him and with each other. As Christians discovered more and more of the riches of the Eucharist, they drew on' many themes from the Scriptures, alI of which express one or more ot the dimensions of the mystery of love which is the Eucharist. Our present liturgy still records many of these. The Eucharist is the sign ot the New Covenant, the new and final marriage bond between God and His people, between Christ and His Church. It 'is the "marriage feast" celebrating this unbreakable bond of love. The Mass is also clearly seen as sacrifice, replacing for alI time other religious sacrifices. The Paschal Lamb, slain and raised from the dead for our salvation, is the victim. Here one eats not of manna as did the Hebrews in the desert, but of the very Bread of Life; Almost every major theme of the Scriptures is drawn upon in the New Testament in an attempt to say what the Eucharist realIy is. Later ages drew upon the art, poetry and philosophy of every culture where Christians were to be foun~ to try anew to communicate the meaning of the' "sacrament of love," Even when variety was limited during recent centuries, the faithful created many non-liturgical, unofficial forms of Eucharistic ·celebration.

NEW YORK (NC)-An' Army colonel's lack of knowledge' about exclusion of religious requirements for conscientious objection was cited as a major reason why a former West Point cadet won a stay from' assignment to active duty. Cary E. Donham', of New Baden, III., appealed to leave the military academy last August asa conscientious objector, the first .cadet to make such arequest. The CO status was denied and Donham was inducted last Fall fora three year tour of active duty. A U. S. Court of Appeals ruled here that the Army had been prejudiced in rejecting Donham's beliefs. The Army ·had said the young man beliefs lacked "the necessary depth 'of sincerity." The Court said the Army failed to abide by' a Defense Department regulation that the hearing officer of Donham's case be "knowledgeable in policies and . procedures relating to conscientious objectors' matterc," Upholding the contention of the former !=adet's lawyers that the Army colonel who heard the case was not familiar enough with such policies, Judge J. Jo- . seph Smith said: "He was' not aware of the elimination of religious requirements for conscientious objection. Moreover, he apparently lacked the necesl!ary objectivity to be a fair, knowledgeable hearing officer," . Since' the earlier decision has been reversed, the Army must now choose between ordering a rehearing or appealing the latest decision to the, Supreme Court.

The Italian Penecostals combine in their services the strong emotionalism of South Italian, culture with the staid sober reo specability of' lower middle class and working class American Protestantism. Accordin~ to Miss Parsons, Pentecostalism has -tra· ditionally' been a religion of cuI:. ture change; she even n~te~, that Corinth in the time of St. Paul was an, unstable and changing .city. Many social scientists' would add that Pentecostalism among , blacks seems to play a role not dissimilar to that which Mi<;<; Parsons describes among the Ital· ians. If this model of Pentecostalism as a transitional religion in the midst of severe culture change has any utilitY, what can it tell us about the current popularity of Pe:1tecostalism in the Americim Catholic Church? What is the culture that is collapsing? What i~ the new cultnrc thnt is hein~ tol;en on? What ~re the prospect)'; for the future? It should be noted that in the :lbsence of any empiri<;al data: the best that can be o'ffered in the way of answers to such ouestions are tentative hypotheses, derived mere from ge,-' eralJheory than from empirical research. Hopefully, someone will attempt the research itt the fu· ture.

JEFFERSON 'cITY (NC)-Two bills supporting parents' choice of private or parochial sc;hools for their children have been in'troduced in, the Missouri House of Representatives. The bills call for a contract for purchase of services from non public schools in' the state and for equal services to all children attending, ,qualified elementary and secondary schools. David McMahon, St. Louis county attorney and president of the Missouri Association for Nonpublic Schools, commented on the number of legislators signing the bills. "The fact that there are more than 80 signatures on these two bills," he said,"indicates that a growing number of Missquri legislators recognize that assis-. tance to the public schools of Missouri is directly tied to the economic survival of the qualified non public schools, in Mis-' souri. Taxpayer Benefits , "Certainly the taxpayer is 'the one who benefits," McMahon added. "Parents and friends of children in nonpubt'ic scho'ols continue to build and maintain more than 549 schools at no additional cost to the taxpayer." The group McMahon heads is a statewide organization oJ parents and children enrolled in Catholic, Lutheran and Jewish schools.
