Private light of these closings, state aid "is the most economical method" of 'averting greater financial problems for the state while proViding equal educational opportunities for all students in Illinois. "This is a baseless argument," Howlett opined as he referred to the constitutionality question.' "If it were true, then you could effectively argue that Catholics

answers to the Qluestions facing non-public, as well as 9ublic education, is nearing reality. He said such a "task force" should be formed now and "should be drawn from throughout the state and all walks of 'life. It should be inade up of men and women with ability to see and solve a problem." Queried about possible criticism of his state aid endorsement because he is a Catholic, Howlett said: "I believe I have to first be n man before being a politician." He said the biggest roadblock in the way of granting state aid is the competition in Illinois !for the tax dollar. "However, I believe," he said, "that education should receive priority and I believe the people of Illinois' feel the same way. We can't solve problems or fulfill the dreams of democracy without a· continuance of good education." , Howlett asserted: "Never before in history has Illinois needed private education more.

State aid advocates currently are seeking $50 grants for 'grade school students and $100 grants for high school students. Among advocates are the Catholic Bish<Jps of Illinois, Citizens for Education Freedom, and the National Association for Personal Rights in Education. Howlett feels granting such aid would be in "the best in-

terests of the community" because it would create a healthy competition, would help parents afford education in a time of continually rising educational costs ,and would be cheaper for the state in light of the eventual costs to Illinois if parochial schools continue to close in the future at the same high rate that they are now. "It would also help the poor to afford better education," he said. Howlett believes the chances of the Illinois Legislature approving some form of state aid this year are "excellent." He contends if no state aid is approved, it will mean sharply increased costs to the state to take care of students who enroll in public schools as more parochial schools' close down. Howlett, recently elected to a third consecutive term as state ~uditor, said his proposal for a "task force" that would seek out both immediate and long:'range

New Unit Offers Aid to Families Formation of the Family Service Corps, a community of Catholic wornen preparing themselves for papal approbation as a secular institute, is announced by its founder and spiritual director, Rev. Lawrence G. Lovasik, S.V.D. Father Lovasik lists four purposes for the new institute: to intensify Christian life in its members and in society while living a flexible modern com-' munity life; to' witness to Christ ,by apostolic zeal and personal love of God and neighbor; to share in works of charity on parish and community levels; and to teach religion in homes and CCD programs. WeUbemg of Family Members will dedicate themselves, says Father, Lovasik, to the spiritual, social, emotional and physical wellbeing of the family, especially among th;r. sick, poor and underprivileged. The rule of the corps is ,based on the spirit of the Gospels and the documents of Vatican II. Members will live together in small communities, supporting themselves with funds earned by their services. Further information is available from F'ather Lovasik at 207 Lytton Avenue, Pittsburg, Pa. 15213.

Urge Suburban Parishes Help Inner City

'Still on Decline But Philadelphia Director of Vocations Anticipates Improvement in 1969

NEWARK (NC) - The Senate of Priests of the Newark archdiocese adopted a series of resolutions designed to encourage suburban parishes to aid those in the inner cities, particularly in the field of education. The resolutions' will ,be submitted to Archbishop Thomas A. Boland for approval. One resolution asked' the archbishop to seek support from individual parishes for a single classroom in an inner-city school. Participating suburban parishes would :be expected to underwirite the teacher's salary and insurance and maintenance costs. Another resolution called fol' inviting suburban parishes to adopt a particular parish in the inner-city areas an effort to keep parochial plants operating among the poor. AsJi CooreUnator A third resolution called for the appointment of a coordinator to direct the wock of parishes, orl&Jl.izations and":,agencietl engaged in the inner-city apostolate. It was suggested that a layman be considered for the position. On the same day, the Newark Priests' . Association, an independen~ group of priests, moved at their own monthly meeting to involve more parishes in association 'programs geared to community life. Parishes on the outskirts· of the city in particular will be asked to play a more active role in the community. Already, the Apostolic Activity Committee, a ,three-man elected board which coordinates Summer recreational, tutorial and self-help programs, has contacted all the ,parishes in the vicinity to invite participation in the Summer programs. Survey Resources The Newark Priests' Association is conducting a survey of the Church's resources in the city in cooperation with Columbia University and this report is expected to 'be completed shortly, after which it will be submitted to Archbishop Boland. The archbishop already has before him a series of proposals on the utilization of Church manpower. made by two other priests' groups. These suggest the utilization of team ministries and other experimental programs: a review of assignments of clerical personnel engaged in the urban apostolate, the recruitment of priests interested in' such work, and the utilization of parish facilities for community programs. Assignments are currently reviewed by a personnel board established a year ago OJl the recommendation of the senate. This Fall Archbishop Boland is-' sued a pastoral statement calling for the eradication of all forms of discrimination in parish life and urging parishes to make their facilities available."

PHILADELPHIA (NC)-Religious vocations in 1968 in the Philadelphia archdiocese showed a 20 per cent decrease (from 1967), Msgr. Edward J. Thompson, archdiocesan director of vocations, has reported. The 1968 .total of 350 vocations to. the priesthood and religious life represents a drop of 82 from the 1967 total of 432. During 1968, 200 young women entered the convent (55 fewer than 1967) and 150 young men entered seminaries or religious houses (down 27 from 1967). "This time last year," Msgr. Thompson noted, "vocation directors felt that 1968 would 'be a poor vocation year. Now I am pleased to report that, from all

indications, 1969 should be much better. Directors are counting many more applications now than at this time last year." Diocesan high schools continued to contribute the largest number of vocations during 1968 -100 young men and 158 young women. Vocations from private Catholic high schools dropped from 47 in 1967 to 17 ill 1968. Vocations from public high schools increased by four last year in comparison to 1967. The 1968 total was 10. Vocations Ii'rom colleges dropped from 42 in 1967 to 38 in 1968, 26 from Catholic colleges and 12 from secular colleges.

Mood of the·

C014I1~try

In his inaugural address on Monday, President Nixon read correctly the mood of the ,country. . The vast majority of Americans are ,sick ,of the shouting that has tried to substitute for communication and reasoning together. , They are sick of the 'obscenities that have marked so often the college campus demonstrations: They are sick of the hysteria of commentators who have· lost their cool and have blown up an incident of police misjudgement all out of proportion..They are)skk of the bad guys being . given every benefit of every 'Qoubt and every possible Ie:eway while the guardians of law and order are vilified and looked upon with contempt, while expecte~ to have the patience of saints and the judgement of law professors. They are sick of the moral malal"se that has been creeping into society under the guise of freedom and that exhibits itself in the flood of perversion and nudity and sadism that feature so prominently in' today's book~ and movies. They are sick, of the society that cries out for strength and character in its youth while its adult-exemplars pursue' the dollar and fail in setting the moral pattern for an upcoming generation. The vast majority of Americans, in faCt, agree with the President that the crisis is a. "crisis of the spirit" and to this is needed "an answer of the spirit." , 'There is need of communication among all members of society and of the world, because respect and love follow upon knowledge and insight into one another. There is need of less shouting so that reason and mankind's concern for itself in its totality can be realized. There is need of tne basic things that are of the spirit -"goodness, decency, love, kindness." , These must .not be slogans but the measure of men's lives and commitment. I

And of the Church

While Americans are wearying of the shouting and the breakdown in standards, Catholics~' too; are .in; 'a; mood that is weary of the "every man his own pope" idea: ' : 1 , ... The recent meeting, in thE! Netherlands that saw' a young lady proclaim herself to ,be "not ade~erit Cathollc at all and I can prove it" while, at the same time, calling for experimentation in such things as euthanasia and abortion is a source of disgust for the' vast majority of Catholics throughout the' world. While the words were' toned' down in the released v,ersion, all too many still believe that these individuals, under the guise, of, calling love of God the only law, are quite willing and even anxious to do away with any and all standards of. morality. And, in all reverence, all too many Catholics are wondering what the Bishops of that nation have' been doing to preserve intact the full content of faith and, morals. These men, to be' sure, are to be commended for wanting to listen to every voice and all points of view; But, in the final analysis, the Bishops are theshe'pherds .a11~ guard~ans of the flock, are the ones who hy their episcopal ordiIiation are the successors of the Apostles and the only authe~­ tic teachers in the Church. The faith and morals of Catholics are not matters for voting. They are drawn from the p'recepts of the natural law and from Christ. It is all very well t,o say that the 'only sin is against the love of Go~. It is a fine-sounding, phrase. Christ tells us what it means: "If 'any man loves me he will keep my. commandments and the Father and I will love him and we will come to him and make our abode with him." Not just a fine-soundi~g phrase any .longer, but one unfolding into specific laws, absolutes. .,

WEBSTER (NC) - Bishop Bernard J. Flanagan of Worcester reaffirmed before an assembly 'of Irate parents his decision to close a parish high school. He .rejected a suggestion the matter be put to a parish vote. Bishop Flanagan said efforts by the parish to keep the school operating ,have resplted in a "great imbalance" in the use of parish funds. He said the parIsh is spending "thousands of dollars" to educate some 100 parish children in the high school and is· "literally spending peanuts" in educating parish children not attending Cathor h 1 IC sc 00 s. . . The meetmg between ;BIshoP Flanagan and a parents comml~tee, which charged the ~ecislOn to close St. Louis High School nex~ June was "unfair," took place m the school gymnaslum. The atmosphere at times was less than cordial. At several points, comments of parishioners were greeted with applause. An estimated 125 persons, including some students from the school, attended the session. Public School Pupils Bishop Flanagan called attention to what he said was the need to "reassess and reevaluate" the overall religious education program in the dlocese. "Each year in the diocese, the number of children in pubHc schools continues to burgeon while the number in Catholic schools remain static," he said. "We have less than 30,000 pupils in Catholic schools and close to 65,000 in public schools whose souls are just as precious and w,hose needs are just as urgent as those children in CatQolic $chools. "The time :has come for us to take a second look at what we are doing," Bishop Flanagan asserted. CIting efforts made in some 'places to obtain state aid for support of Catholic and other private schools, the bishop declared" unless there is some form of aid, it is going to be very difficult to keep our Catholic schools open." Salary Costs Up Bishop Flanagan pointed to "spiraling salary costs" in Catholic schools, geared to the need to pay lay teachers salaries and fringe benefits on a par with those received by public school teachers. To pay inadequate salaries, the bishop said, would not only "violate social justice" but also would incur the risk of attracting teachers who are not first-rate. IBishop Flanagan said a downward trend in enrollment at St. Louis High School was a factor ·that entered into the decision to close it, but that a more serious problem throughout the diocese is the "diminution of religious vocations" over the past few years. This would have forced

the hiring of additional lay teachers at St. Louis in the years ahead, he noted. Bishop Flanagan refused the suggestion that the question of" the St. Louis closing be put to a vote among parishioners on the grounds such a vote would be "a completely E!motional one."

LORAIN (NC) - A $300,000 campaign in business and industry communities here has been launched to build an aquatic center for Lorain Catholic High School. The school is under construction and scheduled to open for freshman classes next F'al:. The drive. is the first in the Cleveland diocese with an appeal directly to the general community for a facility to be built on Catholic school-owned ground and operated under Catholic auspices. The center will be open all year and available for use ,by public school students, adults, and others of any religious affiliation. When grolllnd was broken for the new Lortllin Catholic High School last Summer, Bishop Clarence G. Issenmann said the aquatic center would ·be open to the entire community and its construction would depend on local underwriting of the costs. The estimated cost of the new center is $500,000.

San Gabriel Mission High School came to his rescue and gave him a chance. Father Leq MaUeche,ck, C.M.F., now rector of Claretville Claretian Seminary here, was principal of Mission High .School when Acosta did his student teaching. Terrific Memory "We were a little hesitant as to how a blind teacher could maintain class discipline, but our fears were quickly dispelled. Mr. Acosta had perfect control of his class and the boys learned a great deal. He has a terrific memory. After the first week he knew every student by voice and name, and he kept their interest and attention," Father Mattecheck said. After receiving his ,degree Acosta found a position at Manteca Union High School in San Joaquin Valley.

Ideal Gard,eri'Should Give Children Place to Enioy

Thurs., Jom, 23, 1969

Religious Sisters Hold Chapter

By Joseph and Marilyn Roderick

CINCINNATI (NC)-The option of allowing more individual responsibility to Sisters in choosing their own appointments was one of several proposals considered by the Religious Sisters of Mercy of the Cincinnati Province at a provincial chapter meeting here. Other proposals considered in the sessions at Edgecliff College here included providing more flexibility in the formation of candidates, a si"ngle vow of "total commitment to Christ," and decentralization ofprovin~ial government ,by election of "area coordinators" with administrative responsibility in their own areas. Mother Mary Albert Linnemann, provincial, emphasized the necessity of development and constant reassessment in every undertaking in a "changeoriented world," while avoiding "overaction" under the pressure of the times. In making use of many possible approaches, she said, the congregation "should expand the capacity for change while p'erforming tOday's jobs."

The garden catalogues continue to arrive daily and this year I am determined to get my orders for a dozen ruffled begonias ($8 per dozen) and we are now selecting a new supply of azaleas. Every year about this time we begin to feel the excitement One way or another, man was of, working out the master determined that progress should plan for our garden. Somenot be impeded and that this where in the distant future small area of untouched acreage I have a vision oian informal lovely garden where children will feel at home. This is the ultimate criterion for me. If the children don't feel free to enjoy, themselves as I ·dld as a :boy in my father's garden, then I don't think a garden can be a success. Like a w.ellplanned home, a garden should· be a place where children can be part of the setting and not interlopers in an adult world. Perfect Garden My perfect garden is far from a re~lity. Each year 'brings new new ideas and new plants to further it, but it is a slow process. ·This year we Intend to add a few more frui t trees, some azaleas, a few more' greens, a half dozen roses, some new clematis and loads and loads of annuals which we will grow from seed. Annuals are particularly good for a gardener who does not have everything and they are particularly good where there are young children around. Marigolds and zinnias and the like are go'OO for cutting and dazzling to the eye. The .children cut them for their mother or put them in vases and can do them little harm. More formal settings of plants can ·be accomplished with perennials and lIowering shrubs, but the children love' the annuals. One additonal' must for next year's garden is the hltroduction of more garden statuary. This is difficult to come by .because of the expense involved, but I have faith that I will come across a budding young artist who will sell me what I am looking for without tearing a hole in my wallet. In the Kitchen Jason is learning to skate at the ripe old age of three and oddly enough I am enjoying it as much as he. You see, the nice thing a·bout teaching' a preschooler a Winter sport is the fact that he has to ,be supervised; and naturally Mother or Dad are the ones that have to do the supervising. This creates a perfect excuse for me to breathe a bit of muchneeded fresh air and also enjoy the scenery at the pond where we take the children skating (while not feeling guilty because I should 'be cleaning the house or tending to the washing and ironing). The pond is as pretty as a Currier and Ives Print and as I keep one eye on my "up and down" little one I wonder just how many more Winters the children (and parents) of the area will be able to enjoy its beauty. Don't Impede Progress Only a few months back, local real estate agents were bickering over a bill to rezone the estate on which the pond is located. At one time there had been a proposal to build a strell,mlined shopping center here, another proposal, the latf.!st, was designed to replace its natural bea\lty with an architectural marvel of steel and concrete to house a modern apartment complex.

should not go on without being modernIzed. Oddly enough, as I watched the' happy faces of the skaters and hockey players, as they glided over the silvery ice, I couldn't help ·but .think that 'the destroying of this bucol~c spot by man would ac.tuallY ,be a .olow against progress and a step backwards. In the busy modern world, where mere living is carried on at such a frantic pace, moments of peace' are hard to come by and places to enjoy these moments are even rarer. It frightens me to realize that all such spots of privacy for simple' enjoyment are falling prey to the bulldozer and to greed. This recipe is perfect for a light dessert to end a heavy meal.

Select College Students For Intern Program FlRINCE~ON (NC) Four Cathollc college students were among 45 journalism students selected to participate in the second annual edi,ting intern program sponsored by the Newspaper Fund. Each of .the 45 will receive a $500 scholarship after working eight weeks next surner as a copy ~it<lr for one of the 45 participating newspapers. Prior to the newspaper assignments, the interns will receive a .threeweek intensive indoctrination at one of three centers: Temple University, Philadelphia; the University of Nebraska, Lincoln; and the University of Nevada, Reno.

.Negro Students' at Catholic Girls School . , Explain Attitude. NEW ORLEANS (NC)-Black Power has emerged at St. Jos~ph's girls' high schooi here and, although it set white students and teachers on edge at first, both blacks and whites now agree .they have learned a little more about living. together. It was all done with BRASSB 1a c k Revolutionary Action amOlig Soul Students~a group of 60 black girls who formed their organization with, the permission of principal Sister· Alice Marie, C.S,J. The confrontation began soon after, when BRASS announced p1ans for' a "Black experience" "':-a presentaUon of Af·ro-America.n 'art, music, literature and drama-and white students tried to take part. They were' .refused. And they were confused, said Sister Alice Marie, because they didn't understand why. She arranged a Eeries of meetings at which the white girls got this message, in the words of one BRASS member:

"We have .to separate fOf a while so that 'We can find ourselves. If we can't ge,t together wtth ourselves, we can't get together with anybody." That made sense to white students and teachers and, through more meetings at which BRASS members described their own lives-their homes, ,their problems, their parents and Black Power itself-the understanding grew. "White America," said a BRASS leader later, "wants the black people t<l be white because black is not good. Some blacks want ,to be white. But we are really black and we want to be black."

Priest Says Industrial Theology Needed Sees Busi~e$s Ethics Vital "Subject DAYTON (NC)-A sociologist told a seminar on the role management in the social action field here there is a need for an "industrial theology" to' help man understand ,the ultimate significance of ,business and industry, and the meaning' of work. " Father Theodore V.

The seminar, aiined primarily at master of 'business administration alumni of the university, focused mainly on "the problem of liard-core unemployment. About 200 business,and industry managers participated. Positive View Father Purcell said executives tend to react unfavorably to the term ".business ethics," because it is suggestive of "a lot of 'shalt ,nots'" and IS "threatening and negative." The executives,' in substance, say they already are 'ethical, he added. But he s'aid there is a positive view which "sees man made in God's image and sharing in His ·creative plan.

Bishop Says School System to Continue ,

Missouri Prelate Rejects Board's Proposal KANSAS CITY .(NC)-Bishop Charles H. Helmsing of Kansas City-5t. Joseph has rejected a call ·from the diocesan schoo'l board to shut down the paro~ial school system by September if state aid is not provided. He announced the diocese will maintain ,the parochi-al schools for at least three years at a reduced level as ·recommended in a pastoral planning survey. T-heschool board suggested that all 'diocesan elementary and high schools be closed this fall unless the state agrees to assume 50 per cent of the cost of operating the financially hard-pressed system. In the event state aid IS provided, the schools should be open to those of all faiths, with religious instruction for those who' want it, the board said in its recommendation. The board's statement came a few days after the Catholic bishops of Missouri warned in a joint statement that Catholic schools cannot be expected to oontinue indefinitely without financial assistance. They asked for "00operative arrangements" in which private 'agencies and the state would share educational costs. Time, Effor~ Invested Bishop Helmsing said~ "I share the concern of the members of the school board regarding the financial problems confronting our diocesan school system." He added, however, that he 'preferred ,the plan offered by the pastoral planning team because of the "time and effort" invested in it, and because it has been approved by the diocesan p~storal council, a group composed of priests, Religious, and laymen which is the "highest advisory body" in the diocese. "For this reason, and also my judgment of the lack of readiness on the part of the oommu-

People who oppose economic assistance programs even in the critical field of agriculture do not usually say: "I 'frankly' do not much care if millions of my fellowm~n go hungry." They are more inclined to argue that' aid does . : not work. Yet in one of the larger countries in Asia' population, exports began to Pakistan _ the rate 'of agri- grow by seven ·per cent a y~ar cultural growth ,has doubled and Pakistan ,became, an actual since the early 1960s and certainly this advance could not have been a chi eve d without large scale assistance " fro m outside.

How It Was Managed The way in which growth ha.s been secured is instructive for . ·n:,.ore. than Pakistan's case. In the 1960s, the Pakistan government was above all concerned . to get savings into the new processes of industry and to sel!. that food, .prices were not to~ high for the townspeople. ' It bought grain from the fanners at low fixed prices but they in turn hadio bllY their requirements 'at normal prices. Agricultural experts, were also taxed. All this meant that resources .were transferred ,from . the farms to the towns. Industry did ind~6d grow-by over 100 .per cent j. year-but by the end of the '50s, food output was almost stationary in spite of a three per cent annual increase in population; and the countryside, where nearly 70 per cent of the ·people still lived, had no spare money to ,buy the new manufactur~s. The wl)ole economy threatened to coI;l1e to a' halt. At this point, policy was drastically changed. Export duties ;were, abolished, the farmers were allowed to sell their food at market prices, while subsidies reduced the price of fertilizer and tube-wells were installed and the Government had to begin to race ahead with power and water development to prevent the farmers from blowing all the fuses in their enthusiasm for irrigation. Food output went ahead of

Foreign Aid Role In all this rapid and exciting change, the role of foreign ,assfstance was indispensable., Ip. o:rder to cushion the cities a,gainst the effeCts of higher food prices, American grain supplies under Public Law 480 were ~ used to prevent ,profiteering and to keep the poorer, townspeople sIlPplied.· Foreign exchange (other counutes' money) was made available- for ,purchases of ,fertilizer, machines and pumping equipment not ·produced in Pakistan.

National Black Clergy Conference Spurns White-Style Integration NEW ORLEANS (NC) -The Southern branch of the National Black Catholic Clergy Conference issued a single statement after a two-day meeting here, rejecting integrat:ion according to white specificatons and advocating continuation of black territorial .parishes. At a press conference chaired by Father Rawlin Enette, S.S.J., Newman chaplain, Southern University, Baton Rouge, 'and chairman of the' Southern region, the black priests answered a variety of questions concerning the aims and ambitions of the 'black clergy. During the conference, it was announced the National Black Catholic Clergy Conference would hold its national meeting here in April. The regional statement, hammered out in a daylong meeting, endorsed, encouraged, and "promised that the black priests would positively labor for the continuation ox the ,black territorial parish as a ,black unit not only for the spiritual formation ox souls, ,but as a unit for'selfdetermination and black development socially, psychologically, economically, and politically." The statement concluded: "We reject the current practice and trend toward 'integration' (solely according to white specifications) which is neither a present reality nor wlll be in the future until black' Catholics have achieved self-determination." The conference began with a Mass in an Afro-mood, highlighted by the use of Negro spirituals in place of traditional church hymns. The chasubles worn 'by three of the nine ,concelebrants were patterned after the African dashiki.

"Law and order?" he asked. "Law and order for whom? The John Birchers? Gov; Wallace? When they want law and order, they get it. But let a young ,black want to stand up and be heard, he doesn't get, this same law and order. He gets put' under the jail." "The mood today is of ·black rage-and whatever blacks are, you helped make them that," he said. Whites talk about their ancestors' pulling themselves up by their bootstraps, Dr. Sikes said. "But you never even gave us boots. What your forefathers did, they did on top of our ,black ·bodies., The only legacies our fathers' could leave us was fear and debt," he declared. The churches are still talking, he said, and 'added "the' most segregated time in America is Sunday at 11 A.M.

See Deeper Problems Apparently referring to the controversial poem, .publication of which caused a storm of protest in the Spokane area, the Jesuits said the university should provide "legitimate selfexpression," ·but should ·be sure to "protect itself from dangerous legal action and unnecessary alienation." All facets o~ inter-dormitory visits also were to be investigated.

Many students, Jensen said, considered the Jesuits' statemen a "sell-out." The "Old Guard" among Gonzaga's 'faculty, administrators and alumni seemed agreed that the university's crisis was one of identity - with controversial poetry and other current issues merely surface manifestations of deeper problems. They felt the key to the crisis was the trustees' vote to omit the words "Catholic" and "Jesuit" from the school's bylaws as a mea'ns of qualifying for state funds.

Synod to Help For.,n Instrument For Meeting Crises in Church I

VATICAN CITY (NC)-Next Autumn's 'extraordinary session . .o f the Synod of Bishops will -try to consolidate· the Holy See and national bishops' conferences into a collegial instrument that can meet "not merely the diffi-. culties but the crises" in. the Church, the synod's permanent secretary has stated. Bishop Ladislaw Rubin also predicted that ,the composition of the theological commission that the first session of the Synod of Bishops, in 1967, asked the Pope to create will be announced "soon." He said, however, that he had no knowledge of the i6entity of the members of the commission, designed to help the Pope and the Doctrinal Congregation to discern and deal with modern currents of -theological thought. The task of forming the longawaited theological commission was entrusted to the Doctrinal Congregation, said Bishop Rubin, who is an auxiliary of Stefan Cardinal Wyszynski of Warsaw but now lives in'Rome. The commission is expected to help avert head on clashes between advant-garde theologians. and Church authorities. Bishop Rubin also announced the membership of two commissions preparing for the synod: one to draft an agenda, and the other to weigh suggesUons for revising the synod's rules of procedure. . Among the six mePlbers of the agenda c;ommittee are ,presidents of bishops' conferences from ,the world's five continents.' Archbishop John F. Dearden of Detroit, president of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops, represents North America.

He ·recalled that Pope Paul VI in his last regular pre-Christmas speech to the cardinals of Rome, ha.d emphasized that the synod to meet Oct. 11 was designed ~o foster cooperation between the Holy See and the bishops' conferences, and among the bishops' conferences themselves.

Methodist Leader Se'es Model For Unity in, Cath,olic Rites

-.

PHILADELPHIA ,(NC)-The diverse rites and the many religious orders in the Catholic Church offer a model for eventual Christian unity, the retired Methodist bishop of Philadel, phia said in an interview here. Asked to comment on the ecumenical outlook in connection with the 1969 Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, the former president of the World Methodist Council, Bishop Fred Pierce Corson, said: "I know 'I've surprised some of the Catholic brethren when I've said that in the Catholic system of rites and religious orders we have the beginning of the idea of how Christian churches could be brought together - with autonomy, yet with order. "Protestants are amazed at the amount of local decision and autonomy, there is the Roman Catholic Church they'had considered 'monolithic.' Why, is it unthinkable ,that ,there should be an Anglican rite or an Evangelical rite, just as there is today a Byzantine rite?" Noting the importance of prayer in hastening Cbristian unity, Bishop Corson, who served as a Methodist observer at the Second Vatican Council, said: Mutual Prayer "Pope Paul :and Pope John both asked me if I would pray for them daily and I asked John and ,Paul if they would pray for me and my ,people, and I've received spiritual \ strength, and comfort from the thought' that, around the world, there are thousands of' Catholics praying for me. "If, in the Week of Prayer £or ChrisUan Unity, we did no more than create an awareness of the need for mutual prayer, then we would gain spiritual strength and blessings from the thought that we were experiencing the communion of saints." Of possible barriers to ecumenical progress, Bishop Corson said: "I am fearful that we"re likely to assume that the recognition we've already achieved is the consummation of the ecumenical movement. "Group worship activity must expand 'under, guidance, of course, and in an orderly manner. It must expand until we achieve what could be called, a 'pragmatic unity' in the church. Recognition Key "We must 'also move toward recognition of one another. Recognition is the key word - not the recognition of whether there is one church or a uniform type of church government but of whether we acknowledged the inclusion of all who 'are baptized as part of the organic Body of Christ." "On the grass-roots level," Bishop Corson said, "I'd start out with the 'premise that many of our so-called differences grow out of our isolation. Thus, when we come to speak, we come to know and' love each other more. The emphasis on dia'logue is good,but we must also make a conscious effort to demonstrate our oneness. "Therefore, there should be more services of worship, since a, massive witness of the churches coming together in

Brazil Deports Providence Priest For Alleged Subversive Activities PROVIOENCE (NC) - The Brazilian government has deported Father James Murray, a priest of the Providence diocese who was working in Santarem, Brazil, for alleged subversive activities. Father Murray was serving under Chicago-born Bishop James Ryan, O.F.M., in the prelature of Santarem, 500 miles from the mouth of the Amazon River. He is the third U.

Grams, both members of the Oblates of Mary Immaculatc, spent 10 days in jail in Recife and were then given a choice of leaving the country voluntarily or of remaining to face a military court on charges of "subversive agitation." A number of other priests, foreign and Brazilian, have been jailed or expelled. At the Second Vatican Council, where Bishop Russell J. McMcVinney of Providence met Bishop Ryan, an agreement was made for the. Providence diocese to adopt the prelature of Santarem and send priests, Brothers, Sisters and financial assistance to Brazil. The first two priests from Rhode Island wlmt to Santarem in 1963. Father Murray left Brazil under a voluntary deportation order from the government and returned here. He said two other priests from Rhode Island serving in Santarem, Fathers Cornelius B. Lynch and Daniel McCarthy, will probably also be expelled during the next several wecks.

Most of the people in his church that Sunday backed his stand, but five persons reported to the governmel;1t and signed statements against Father Murray. Calling the priest to the regional capital, the military commandant showed him the official 'document ordering his expulsion. Add.itional Trouble Father Murray said he was given a choice of voluntary deportation. "I believe there has been additional trouble in Santa rem since I left," he said. When he was ordered to leave the country, he said, the people of his parish, St. Sebasitian's, began demonstrations and vigil services and rang the church bell continuously. The real reason for his expulsion was not the "black Mass," he said, because one of the other Providence priests in the parish also offered a "black Mass" the same day. "At the inquiry on my actions," Father Murray said, "the 'black Mass' was only one charge against me. The military has been after me for some time now. Ever since last year when I spoke out over the misappropriation of land for military purposes the government has been after me." Father Murray was referrin,g to his part in a successful effort to stop the government from taking the land of 36 families with no payment.

Ask High School Tuition Raise

,~.,\

BRIDGEPORT (NC) ~ The Bridgeport diocesan board of education has recommended an increase in tuition to keep Catholic high schools operating. "The diocesan board of education recognizes that providing a C~tholie education is one of the most important functions of the Church and its people. Providing a Catholic education that is both competitive and worthwBile is costly," a board statement said. "A review of the economic cost of the diocesan secondary schools for 1968-69 shows a deficit of approximately $1,150,000. Immediate steps must be taken to reduce the deficit," the statement added. "Recognizing the need for action the 'board therefore recommends that the tuition be raised commensurate with the increased cost of operation; present parish assessment method of fund raising be continued' with each parish assuming its fair share of overall diocesan expense, placing special emphasis on the educational aspect of diocesan costs; and people be fully apprised of the situation by all possible means. "The board believes that the people of the Bridgeport diocese can and will support our high school system, and that we shall be able to continue our Catholic secondary system."

MANCHESTER (NC) - Bishop Ernest J. Primeau of Manchester has issued a statement urging that the proposed abortion bill, now pending in the New Hampshire Legislature, be "vehemently opposed on moral, legal and ethical grounds,"

ByRt. Rev. Msgr; John S. Kennedy The tenth and, reportedly, next-to-Iast installment in C.P.

'the narrator, of course, is that inveterate and tireless observer and commentator, J ,~wis Eliot. , In 1963, he is back in the provincial English town of his boyh00d and youth, to fulfill his obligation as the students' elected representative on the c.'{ecutive court of the local univ.~rsity.

The other is Cora Ross, niece of George Passant. Passant, resident in the town for decades, is the man who, forty years earlier, had encouraged Lewis Eliot to go out and ma~e his way in the 'world, which advice Lewis took, and to excellent effect. Down the years Passant has ,been a kind of lead-' er of the young, stirring them up and spurring them on. Now, out of a sense of obligation to George Passant, Eliot feds he must be present at the, murder trial, lending public, if mute support, to an old friend. Others, Including his own son, counsel against such a course, saying that it will do no one any good, and may well damage Eliot's own reputation. Mental Abnormality

ents off. . Despite the drama of the triai, this is primarily a novel of ideas, and it is superior of its kind. The writing is somewhat better than pedestrian, with, 'an (,ccasional felicity like "the detective work of jealousy," as against Mr. Snow's well known penchant for formidable expressions like "Her face was goodlooking, in a strong-boned, slightly acromegalic fashion,'~ Bright Lights . If for r.othing else, The Bright Lights (Doubleday, I 501 Franklin ~ Ave" Garden City, N.

We doubt tha.t it will occasion any great excitement. It is solid standard fare, meticulously literate, the kind of well written :English novel which once ~as :fairly common but has by now virtually disappeared. Aging fanciers of the genre ean polish up their bifocals and I~O at it with relish. Students of the development (or degeneration) of the novel should well~ome it as a sturdy anachronism.

Constance is determined to, be an :actress. She jo-ins a wretched touring company, learns the rudiments of the trade, ·beats off the lecherous star-manager, heads for London with the most promising actor in the troupe, marries him, soon outstrips ,him professionally, remarries on 'a higher level, becomes a star, is surpassed artistically by her slower-starting sister, marries money, and at the end has everything and not9ing.

The bishop said: "It is unfortunate that our state Legislature has again ,before 'it a bill to legalize abortion. As a clergyman, I bemoan this attempt to promote something which I consider immoral. As a citizen, I oppose this effort to take away the rights of ,unborn children which have ,been defended and upheld in our courts. "Experiences in places which have permissive abortion laws has caused serious concern. Abortion has become big ,business. One asks whether ~ew Hampshire 'wishes to be the mecca of abortion seekers as well as of tourists," he said. .de said the proposed legislation might be unconstitutional.

The scoring system employed is similar to the' one used in track and field. The winner receives five points,' second place finisher, three points and third, one point. In the relay 'races, the winning team capt'ur~s seven points while the loser receives none. Thus, in a sanctioned meet, with all 11 events being contested a total of 95 points are up for grabs with 48 needed to win.

. By Luke Sims To a sprinter, four tenths of a second can mean the difference between winning a race and losing it. It sometimes means a new record. To a' long .distance runner, four tenths of Ii second is usually nothing more . than an added kick somewhere "along the way. To John Wojcik, a former twomiler at Northeastern University in Boston, four tenths of a second meant disappointment. John was one of three Huskie runners to represent ,the Huntington Avenue campus at the IC4A's this past summer. He competed iri the rugged steeplechase. against' some of the best runners in the nation. Wojcik ran the 3000 meter event which is just 180 .yards shy of two miles and consists of some 36 hurdies and six water barriers in nine minutes, 15.4' seconds. . That time was good enough for sixth place. The four tenths of a second prevented John from Qualifying for the NCAA Nationals .in California which helped determine the 1968 United States Olympic roster. The qualifying time was set by the rules committee was 9:15 nnd no amount of persuasion by Northeastern Track Coach Irwin Cohen to the authorities in California or Mexico would convince them to give Wojcik's 9:15.4 time a second thought. So Wojcik, Northeastern University's only close oly,mpic track candidate, missed a possible trip ,to Mexico CitY' by four tenths of a second. Needless to say he was a disappointed youngster, for in his own words, "the nationals are the epitome of college track." His performance was still a very respectable way to bring to a close a splendid college.track career. This 'past was John's last season as a varsity runner at N.U. "I'll certainly miss it," said the Fairhaven resident. "After eight years of running it becomes p~rt of your life." Wojcik is presently in his fifth yel\r of a five-year course at Northeastern and has been a Dean's List student in all five years. . He is the son of Mr. and Mrs. John A. Wojcik of 47 Wilding is used during the school-day by the physical education classes. It is available. for use from 4 to 9 daily and is open on Saturday until 4. . The program is organized to meet the needs of all students in the system.. Grammar school students in grades 4, 5, and 6 received instructions. in each of the first 15 weeks of the school year. Commencing in Jariuary attention is then focused on the high school pupils, first with the girls and'then the boys reaping the rewards of five-weeks of training. The remaining 10 are devoted to the junior high studenis. . Athletic Director Jack Searls, Coach Ellis Mayer, assistant coaches Edward Westcoot and Richard Barber and the entire Seekonk school system can understandably be 'proud of the progress made by their athletic department and the galloping strides of the undefeated Seekonk swim team.

JOHN WOJCIK St. and is one of four Wojcik (Children. Mrs. Frances St. Gelas of New Bedford is the oldest and one of two sisters. Pat is a 1968 graduate of Fairhaven High School. John's younger brotner Tommy, is ·a senior at Fairhaven High and the standout of this year's Blue Devil basketball squad. The. Wojcik's are members of St. Mary's Parish in North Fairhaven. John has been working out with the Northeastex:n cross country teams and has been entertaining thoughts of running in the BAA marathon in the spring. "If I do decide to run in the Boston marathon, it won't be just to .say I ran in the event *. >10 >10 I want to win." . A winner all the way, Wojcik furnished the Huskies with some ,of his best running for three years with the cross country and track teams. It wasn't until this past summer- however that John ran the race he considers his college highlight. He ran the mile in four minutes, 16.6 seconds' in a

tri-meet agCllinst pringfield and New Hampshire. "I ran the fClIstest half in my life in that race," recalls the Fairhaven fleetfooter. "I did the first 'half in 2:11.6 and the last in 2:05. That race gave me great personal satisfaction." John's two-mile time of 9:26 in a duel meet with Harvard was a personal record in the steeplechase. But records are nothing new to John. Before coming to Northeastern, Wojcik was Class D State Champion and record holder in the two-mile in both ibis junior and senior years, and left the school with six' athletic letters. As a Northeastern runner John won four varsity letters; two in cross country and a pair in track. His varsity eligilibity is now up, b~t because of the school's cooperative plan of education John won't graduate until June.

Organized to Sene Prior to the address by Archbishop Lucey, Roser used a pro-' jector to show charts outlining the ACCM's structure, explaining how.,..-through its five committees, affiliated lay groups, deanery officers and moderators as well as parish councils of men -the ACCM is organized' to "serve, coordinate and represent the men of, the archdiocese." Roser outlined a plan to group the 23 organizations in a federation to provide a "single, unifying voice' for all laymen in the archdiocese" in formulating "programs' of true Catholic action" and serve "as a two-way channel of communication between the archbishop and members of every Catholic men's organization in the archdiocese" that is affiliated with the ACCM. F~ther Edwin Juraschek, federation moderator, said the ACCM is structured to ,"enable laymen to come forth with constructive ideas" within the Church. He added: "If ever there was a time and a need for the ACCM program, it is today." Held, ReSponsible . The archbishop,' rioting that the structural or mechanical part of the ACCM had been explained, spoke on the functions of the official archdiocesan men's council and emphasized: "We are going to be held responsible. by Almighty God for our power. "At the moment," the archbishop said, "our power is largely potential in the sense that we haven't gotten it organized and we aren't 'using it." He recalled a sermon he had given 50 years ago when he said: ~'The world doesn't care what you believe in the field of dogrna. It's unfortunate, but it's true. "But the world does care what you do for the welfare ~of your neigbbor." The archbishop said the image of the Church suffered dliring those 50 years, "because the laity wouldn't take the trouble to find \ out, first of all, what their duty was imd how they could help, and then to do something about it."
