Hands of Whites The future of the Negro in America, he said, lies largely in the hands of whites. "Negroes are a political minority and therefore can't vote on their right," he continued. "They depend on fair and decent whites to work for justice. This is why whites, especially Catholics, must know what is right and just in this area." Most people know what is right and want to pursue it, but they remain silent and inactive, Father Mottet contended. "We must stir up this 'silent major-

Dec Ei'tl Sco~es A~at~v PROVIDENCE (NC) - The dean of a Catholic college said here that "civic indifference and political apathy can rightfully be regarded as one of the great immo~'alities of the present day." Father Joseph L. Lennon, O.P., dean of Providence College, said in a speech: "In a democracy such as ours and in the complex society in which we live, every citizen, in keeping with his time and talent, is called upon to do something for the wider social good. He who does nothing is guilty of sin." He spoke before the annual diocesan meeting of the' Christian Family Movement. Love Without Action" The Dominican educator said it is inconsistent to "profess love of fellowman without acting to perfect government at this critical time in history." He added that "if Christians in general, and parents in particular, realized that the half dead man helped by the Good Samaritan is today represented by a thousand million men, undernourished, ill housed, undereducated-four fifths of mankind -then they would be moved to a more intense interest in government and in, politics."

Children learn it from their parents," he said. "If this is true then the home .can also be the greatest source of the true Christian attitude in race rela~ tions. The home is the best place to teach all 'children to love' all races as God's children." Father Mottet said that discrimination and segregation are not just problems for the South. Negroes may be treated as equals in Northern' schools, he said, but subtle and hypocritical discrtmi- . nation denies them their rights in housing and employment in the North. "One young Negro told me," Father Mottet said, "that he went to Korea and risked his life to defend American freedom, and then returned to Davenport where he was refused the right to buy the house he wanted, even though he had the money to buy it."

The association, which represents 11,500 department, specialty and variety stores with annual sales of more than $19 billion, expressed "deep concern" over the growing trend toward Sunday business. "Competitive pressures that have induced some stores, including members of the association, to open on Sunday must be strongly resisted," it said.

"We are not in the business of supplying children to meet the needs of some parents--to save a marriage, to cure an alcoholic or neurotic," Markle stated.

,Pre J'a t e Asserts Pop e Is Center Of CotholDC Unity SAN ANGELO (NC) The center of worldwide Catholic unity, guarantee of apo!'tolic succession and the true power and authority lies in the Pope, Bishop Thomas K. Gorman of Dallas-Fort Worth emphasized in a sermon at the consecration and enthronement of the Most Rev. Thomas J. Drury, first Bishop of the newly erected Diocese of San Angelo in Sacred Heart Cathedral here in Texas. Bishop Gorman said that a "thl'cefold apostolic visitation" had come to San Angelo - the erection of the new diocese, the . consecration and enthronement of iIs first Bishop. He traced the succession of bishops of today back to the time of the Apostles. "Through long centuries of controversy and bitter strife, when uncertainty about Christ's true doctrine beat upon the minds of Christian men, when falsehood and bitter heresies raised their ugly heads, men bav~ looked to Rome for guidance toward the truth of Christ and protection from the wiles of erro~," Bishop Gorman said. "Long ago, in the midst of swirling controversy, when men struggled to know where was truth, where the Church, where the center of unity, where the government of Christ's true Church lay, a great doctor of the ChUl'ch cried out suceincUy and penetratingly, 'Ubi Petrus. ibi Eeclcsia.' Where Peter is, there is the Church. "Look for Peter and you will find Cluisk's Church, and where can Peter be found save in his successor, the Pope, the Bishop of Rome, divinely appointed guardian of truth in the matter of faith and morals?" Bishop Gorman continued. He said that today when the world is beset "by thle storms of controversy and the attacks of error, seeking to undermine Christian fGUndations. we must look to Peter to find the Church, , to John XXIll, his successor and 'like him vicar of Christ, for assurance of Christ's truth."

Party Official Now Catholic NEW YORK (NC)-John Lautner, a top official for 20 years of the Communist party in the U.S., was received into the Church in November, 1961, the Oriel Society announced here. The society, an international Catholic cultural organization, said that Lautner received his religious instructions and First Communion from Father Vincent Hart, S.J., of Loyola Seminary, Shrub Oak, N. Y. The Oriel Society stated that Father Robert Gannon, S.J., former president of Fordham University, helped lead Lautner into the Church by suggesting that he make a retreat in the Summer of 1961 at Loyola Seminary. Lautner had served as a member of the Communist party's national review commission and as a security officer of the party. He also was assigned to building the party's underground apparatus in New York state. Tortured by Thugs On Jan. 14, 1950, he was accused of being an FBI agent and tortured in Cleveland by COlllmunist thugs. He left the party shortly afterwards. The torture he suffered is described in FBI director J. Edgar Hoover's book "Masters of Deceit." Since leaving the party he has worked closely with the U. S. Government. He is a consultant to the U. S. Department of Justice and has been a witness for the department in 20 Smith Act conspiracy and Communist party membership cases. He also lectures for the Oriel Society on the techniques and propaganda of communism.

breathed a sigh of relief rece'ntly to learn that he 'has been allowed to remain in the Anglican cateChism' for a trial period of several years. It seems that he has been running into' some opposition /, lately, with men of religion, clerical and lay, of that denomination all' for banishing him not only from heaven but even from hell. These feel that he is no longer fashionable, that he is no longer believable; indeed-and they, to their credit, are not afraid to proclaim it-they feel that he just does not exist. ' What a cruel blow to the devil. What-if the expression can be used-a hell of a thing to do to him. It is bad enough for, men of goodwill to oppose him. It is to his benefit if they ignore him and pretend he is not around. But when they go so far as to deny his existence, even he must resort again to Scripture to prove his existence. Fortunately, 'cooler and Scripture-filled heads have saved the Qay, and young Anglicans will be introduced to the devil in their catechism, at least for several more 'years when the question will be reviewed again. This is symptomatic of the tendency that is' by no means new in the field of religion and morality.

erhnouq.h the Wu:k With the Chunch By REV. ROBERTW. HOVDA, Catholic University

Can you give me a brief !iummation of my name-saint, St. Nicholas? There are several Saints Nicholas. If you know the exact one the task of answering you r ('uestion would be simplified. Possiblythedate of your birth might give the clue, if you are uncertain as to just which one is your patron; it may be that your birthdate coincides with , the feast day of 'one of them. Most popularly known of the Saints Nicholas is St. Nicholas 'of Myra; his feast day is Dec. 6 and is kept almost universally throughout, the Church. He was a Bishop and Confessor. He and still is among the most popular of the saints, especially among the Eastern dissidents. .While not too much is known definitely of him, there are many legends' associated, with this saint. St. Nicholas is honored as the patron of many countries and cities and classes of people (especially children-8anta Claus ill a corruption of his name). He was Bishop of Myra in Lycia ill the,fourth century; his body was stolen 'by Italian merchants 'ill 1087, arid it now rests in Bari.路 Among the many' groups to wh0m St. Nicholas is patron are the pawnbrokers, and the three golden ba~ls so frequently used to indicate a pawnshop originated in a legend of ,good "St. Nick." Maybe in the month of January the family breadwinners see the appropriateness of '''Santa Claus" also being the patron of pawnbrokers.

TODAY-The eonversion of st. Paul, Apostle. We close the unity prayer week with this moving Mass of Paul's conversion. Both Epistle and Gospel tell us that -it is only Christ that matters, that even the highest human values and goods (family, property, etc.) must be seen as iTIferior to personal faith in Him, a personal encounter with Him. Catholics and Protestants working for reunion can apply . this' to all that is purely human in their own religi,ous traditions.

MONDAY - St. Francis of Sales, Bishop, Confessor, Doctor. "In the gathering of the Church the Lord opened his mouth and filled him with the spirit of wisdom and understanding," begins the Introit of today's Mass. The Church is Christ, so it is not man who brings gifts and talents to the Church but rather the Church which' enables man to whatever c'onfession of faith, wha'tever utterance, whatever witness he may make. Every confessor and teacher in the Church is a part of Christ's con_ tinuing Epiphany, a part of His gracious manifestation of Himself to men.

'" .. By,Avis C.Roberts ' Late last Spring the upper church of Sacred Heart Church in New Bedford was closed and last October parishioners gasped With pleasure when they attended the first kIass in the wholly redecorated' edifice. During the Summer months Mass had been held in the basement church. Sac!ed Heart retains its quiet and elderly dignity but the 'newly-eonstructed church is new, modern and beautiful. Everything in the church is new, from vinyl floors to

the apex of the vaulted ceilings. Only exceptions to the clean sweep are retention of the pipe organ, which was overhauled ard the beautiful stained glass windows. Rev.

She's going to the South Africa bush coun·tI'y as a lay missionary. The Vermont nurse recalled that when she was in the lower grades of grammar school she hoarded pennies to "buy" pagan children in Chiria.' When she reached 13 she was an avid reader of the exploits of missionaries in Africa and China. , Later she corresponded with Dr. Dooley, the famed "jungle

doctor of Laos," who advised her: "Get your R.N. first, then come on over. We need help." So she studied nursing and got her R.N. from st. Mary's Hospital in Montreal. Miss Gabbeitt has been accepted to serve as the fourth lay missioner under Bis~op,. John Bok~nfohr, O.M.I., in hIS .DIocese of KImberley, South AfrIca. She will serve three years as a nurse there.

Priest Asserts Bigots Thwa rt Hope of Unity.' WASffiNGTON (NC) -:.. A priest-editor warned here \, that there are "supermili. tant Catholics" whose hos-, tillty . to Protestantism is a hindrance to the Christian unity movement. Such Catholics "see nothing in Protestantism but heresy," said Father Walter M. Abbot, S.J., feature editor of America, na-. tional Catholic weekly revieW'. The Jesuit priest asserted in' a sermon at Unity Octave ceremonies in the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. that the response of such Catholics to Protestantism "is hostile, aggressive, sometimes pugnacious."



"These supermilitant Catholic!! . reject the charge that they are , bigots," Father Abbot continued. "For them the Christian unity, movement is warfare, with unconditional surrender to the Catholic Church as the only outcome. "If you see it in any other terms-for example, if you advocate understanding, discussiorfs and neg'otiations with Protestants as brothers-they call you a com- . munist or a member of what they refer to as the 'world c,onspiracy.' "It seems to have made no impression on them that the Cardinal (Augustin Bea, S.J.) who has been placed in charge of these matters by the Pope says their response to Protestantism is an 'extremist' attitude. . . If you are not a cardinal and yOJ1 try to tell them the same thing, they accuse you of placing the one true Catholic Church on a level with 'those other chuches.' " Bible Bond Father Abbot declared that "there are other Catholics, priests and theologians among them, who pray and work for the return of Protest.mts to union with the Church, but with all good intentions in the world, they keep bypassing the Bible in order to stand on dogmatic propositions that Protestants may take or leave." "The Bible is, or should be, a bond between us, just as the Holy Spirit is, or wishes to be, a bond between us," he state~.

Paths to Peace In 45' Seconds . SAN FRANCISCO. (NC)-In less than a minute the president of the University of San Francisco named the missing ingredients of peace--worldwide, political, family and personal. Given 45 seconds to tape a message for television station KTVU here, Father john F. X. Connolly, S.J., said in part: "There can never be worldwide peace . . .. if men do not respect the authority of God, our Creator. "There can be no political peace if men do not respect the authority of those who are vested with the responsibility of maintaining established order in our body politic. "There can be no family peace when the members of this basic society fail to respec't 'each other and when 'parental authority is spurned. ' "There can be no personal peace when individuals do not recognize any authority that has the power to make a law or give a command to bind the conscience of the individuaI."

society, diocesan sodality directors from all over the U. S. agreed here. Directors from 24 dioceses attended the annual meeting of the National Diocesan Sodality Directors' Conference, held to map plans for the future of the sodality move~ent in the U. S. Adult Men Among the subjects treated at the meeting was the formation of adult men's sodalities, a relatively new development in this country. Father Joseph MacFarlane, S.J., of st. Louis, national sodality promoter, said sodalities have been organized among professional men in nine cities-Bos.ton, New York, Chicago, Cleveland, Washington, D. C., Philadelphia, Newark, N. J., Buffalo, N. Y., and Detroit. Professionals Members are drawn from such fields as medicine, law; engineering, advertising, chemistry and social work. Father MacFarlane described the meeting as "the greatest show of unity in years" in the U. S. sodality movement. "-There was agreement that the sodality must adapt itself to all kinds of circumstances, that it must preserve its flexibility," he said. Combine The Jesuit added that the sodality directors are convinced that laymen must combine their spiritual lives and their occupations, rather than trying to separate them.

The HoI,. Father has to take 'care of both physical and spiritual hunger. That· is why the Missions maintain hospitals. dispensaries and leper colonies In various parts of the world. But, The Society ,for the Propagation of the Faith implies first the giving of the Faith. It is not only the grain of wheat that must be brought to the . starving; they mUlilt receive the Eucharist! Why is it much easier to induce people to give to the hungry, the sick and the starving rather than it is to induce them to sacrifice to make converts and to spread the Redemption C?f the Cross? It is 'because emotions are involved at the sight of starvation, whereas F'aith' is involved' at the I sight of paganism. The picture of a leper makes us feel what we' would like to do, but the sight of a ,sinner or a pagan or a Buddhist does not always dictate what we ought to do. Many dQ not act' until their feelings, bave been excite.d. Cons~quently, support of the Missions is too often sporadic, uncertain, dependent upon emotional reactions to emotional appeals. Sometimes God permits us' to meet perSonally benefactors of The Society for the Propagation of the Faith 'who ,have made small claily sacrifices over a long period of time. It Is invariably true that those who are coustant in' the sacrificial spirit are those who are a b'lOrbed in bringing hearts and souls to Christ In ' the Eucharist. Let your' glvmg, then, be dictated Dot 'only by a desire to feed bodies•.Let It arise' froin a yearning to bring the Bread ' Of' Life to dJirist-starvedsouls.' Only when your life of Faith Is deeper thlin 'yoUr emotional life will both hungers of the mission ,world be eODque~ed. .

MONTREAL (NC)-The description of non-Catholic Christians as "separated brethren" is not a mere pious platitude but expresses a profound truth about their relation to the Church of Chris~ Paul Emile Cardinal Leger said here. . The Archbishop of Montreal said baptized non-Catholic Christians "have certainly that union with Christ which begins , 'at Baptism" but they lack "complete and perfect union with the Mystical Body." "The expression ·'separated 'brethren' -is no pious tag' or empty formula, but the description of a real and profound truth' which involves our whole thinking on the subject," Cardinal Leger said. ' "It is only by helping them to fulfill that real brotherhood and .~ discover its true meaning that we may hope to overcome the difficulties which still divide us," be added. 'Supernatural Enterprise' Cardinal Leger, preaching at 8 Mass marking the 10th anniversary of the Catholic Inquiry Forum here, urged increased efforts by Catholics on behalf of religious unity. He conceded that unity is a "supernatural enterprise" in which men cannot be the "principal agents." "But if we cannot achieve it through human efforts alone, we can at least not hinder it through , lack of charity, lack of under,standing and a faulty sense of proportion in stressing the nonessentials in our holy religion es if they were essentials," he said. ' , "We can prepare for it and do everything to make it possible, removing as far as we can all human obstacles that we ,could set against God's operations and disposing ourselves as Catholic .' Christians to be the instruments , "of the peace of God." , ~,':," Positive lInsights ::" Discussing the positipn of non, Catholic Christians -in relation to ,~he Church, the Cardinal, de.:"'clared that the leaders of the "Protestant Reformation "were "riot altogetl;' without genuine , , 'positive insights." , ,,', ""Despite all their errors' •.• . :' they clung' firmly, for instance, to their positive insight that each ',:"~d eyery Christian soul has a ":direct access to God, a living' and 'personal relationship with their , 'Saviour Jesus Christ," he said. . Cardinal Leger noted that the Catholic Church alone has "the ' full and final revelation of God's ~. truth." He said it follows from this that "all religious truth that is really true is Catholic truth, even when that truth is held outside the Catholic Church." 'Part .of Treasury' \ . "The positive insights of the 'reformers, therefore, insofar as they are true and valid, are Catholic truths," he said. Many of the "values" of ~on:' Catholic Christians are really "part' of the treasury of, the Catholic' Church," he continued. "The tragedy is that 'our separated brethren have failed to . recognize these values in Cath- . , olicism. Perhaps we state them in terms they find difficult 'to understand and in it theological idiom which is unfamiliar to ' , tp.em."

Saint Joseph College; West Hartford,'Oifers Outstanding Curriculum on 'Lovely Ca~"pus Sain.t Joseph College, West Hartfprd, Conn., is one of ~he fastest growing Catholic four-year liberal arts colleges for women in New England. Founded in 1932 by the Hartford Sisters of Mercy, a religious congregation with 110 years of educational activity in the state, the student body has grown, from 63' undergraduates and 15 faculty to a student populaIt is affiliated with Catholic unteers working with foundlings, tion of 1002 with 63 religious University of America, member the handicapped, the emotionally and lay teachers.

Construction has kept pace with expansion. Beginning with two massive three-story Georgian-Colonial buildings more than a quarter century ago, the college added two student residence halls in 1955, a $624,000 library building named after Pope Pius XII in 1960, and is presently completing a large student dormitory, faculty residence, . and a splendid student union at a total cost of '$1,500,000. By early 1962 the' college will' have eight .of its 11 projected buildings. Although physical expansion has been a necessary preoccupation, the administration has placed even greater emphasis on the quality of its teaching. This insistence on standards has built an enduring reputation for excellence in the liberal arts. It is also reflected in the high number of doctoral degrees among the faculty, some 53 teachers having this degree. College Aims Fully accredited, Saint Joseph College is approved by the Connecticut State Board of Education, Board of Regents of the State of New York, New England Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools.

Education, National Catholic Education Association, and American Association' of University Women. Believing in the worth of its education product, Saint Joseph College has spelled out these aims and objectives. It views education as a life-long process carried on by each individual to perfect her powers of mind and body in order to contribute productively to the welfare of society and the glory of God.

First Hand Training The college estimates each student's achievement in terms of the progress she makes toward the development of her powers. Grades, as such, are not stressed. Assimilation of what has been learned and mental growth are. Since the college is a social unit for preserving and fostering democracy, it aims to develop powers of self - government among the students. Built around a well-coordinated system of student government, which functions through the student body with the help of a Student-Faculty Liaison Committee, the ideals and regulations of the College are upheld and a responsible corps of campus leaders is developed. . In other programs students acquire first-hand training in good citizenship. As group leaders in social-work centers and as vol-

Student life on this 80-acre scenic campus in residential West Hartford is varied and active. There are some 18 extracurricular clubs and chapters of national organizations which students may join. Each has been organized for a specific need or social interest. Many carryon advanced or special work supplementing that of the classroom.

Mid-Way Hoop Record Is 10-2

Banner Year Looms for Stonehill By Frank Trond

Sporting a glowing 10-2 record with the season at its midway mark, the Storiehill College basketball teamwith a starting lineup of five sophomores - is currently the leading college cage unit in New England. This year's edition of Chieftains is an ll-man squad, comprised of nine sophomores, a junior and a senior. The team, with a sophomore coach" has been impressive even in defeat. Coach Fran O'Brien's charges have been upended only by Quinnipiac College of Hamden, Conn., pacesetter of the Southern New England Conference, by' a five-point margin, and by powerful St. Anselm's College of Manchester. Collegiate Conference Outside the collegiate ranks, the Stonehill hoopmen were defeated by the New York Athletic Club, a squad composed of some of the country's top college stars of recent years. Gotham fans were surprised to see the Chieftains trailing by only five points at the end of three periods of play. While Stonehill is but a 13year-old institution, the college was admitted this season to the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference, a feat worthy of note. As a member of the ECAC, the Chieftains have a bright future ahead. Rev. William F. Gartland, C.S.C., Stonehill athletic director, has reported seven impressive opponents have already been scheduled for the 1962-'63 season.

Besides their regular rivals, the Chieftains will clas~ next year with the likes of the University of Massachusetts, Fairfield University, Philadelphia Textile, Adelphi College, Siena College, St. Michael's College and Lemoyne University. Stonehill will remain a member ,of the growing Southern New England Conference, but in addition the team will play its stiff independent slate of games. Peterson Tops Leading his sophomore teammates in Coach O'Brien's starting lineup is George Peterson of Flushing, N. Y., 6-foot, 3th-inch scoring ace. One of the top scorers in New England, Peterson is a solid 185-pounder and has been averaging 17 points a game this season. Peterson last year was -named to the All-New England freshman team; to the Catholic College All-American team-honorable mention-and to the Southern New England Conference's all-star starting unit. Runnerup in the scoring column this season has been Bob Suchy, a steady performer who hails from Yonkers, N. Y. A graduate of Fordham Prep, Suchy came to th~ college in North Easton after being named tQ the All-City team in New York and to the Iona College allstar tournament team. Pleasant Surprise Suchy stands 6-2 and tips the scales at 185 pounds. One of the pleasant surprises Coach O'Brien has had this season has been Bill Creedon of Cranston, a former seminarian. The 6-3, 186-pound Creedon, who previQusly attended St.

Columban's Seminary, fits well into the starting unit despite the fact he had limited high school hoop experience. A former Lawrence Central Catholic star, Bob Bleczinski of Methuen is capable of' hitting double figures in the scoring column with consistency. Murphy Sidelined Bleczinski replaced starter JQhn Murphy recently, when the latter received a broken bone in one of his feet in a game against Nasson, Me., College. Bob stands 6-2 and weighs 180. Rounding out the starting five is informal floor captain Jim Swan. A standout performer at Archbishop ,Williams High in Braintree for a former Stonehill star, Coach Don Edmonston, SWl\n is from Quincy. Named most valuable player his last

Pl/'elQlte Starts Fund For P~ll'l!.I

SUb"Whf@lfS CAMDEN (NC)-A relief fund to aid the survivors of the avalanche which killed' some 3,500 persons and wiped out entire villages in Peru has been established here at the direction of Archbishop Celestine J. Damiano, Bishop of Camden. In a letter read at Masses in all churches of the Camden diocese, the Archbishop said: "For those who have died so suddenly we call on our people in the Diocese of Camden to offer the alms of their prayers at all Masses celebrated on Sunday, Jan. 21. For those who were spared, as well as the thousands of others who will have to be evacuated from nearby areas, we ask the mercy of material help for these poorest of the poor."


year at Williams, Jim is 6-2 and weighs 175. Senior on the squad is Bob Reddy of Somerville.' The big 6-5 Reddy, a 195-pounder, is a graduate of Cathedral High SchOol in Boston. SiX-foot, 3-inch Charlie Byrne, lone junior on the team, is alsO from Somerville. Byrne, who weighs in at 165 pounds, is' an' alumnus of St. Clement's High School; Somerville. Rounding out the crack Stonehill cage squad are Ed Pare of Brooklyn, Pat Hart' of Newton and Jim Fallon, also-of Brooklyn.' Pare, the team's little man at 5-10, is an adroit ball handler. He was named to the New York City all-Catholic high sehool five and is a graduate of Bishop LQughlin High Scho·ol. A valli-able reserve center, Hart, who stands 6-5, is a demon off the backboards whenever called upon for'action. He weighs' 190 and was graduated from Our' Lady's High School in his home town. ' A high school teammate of Pare, Fallon is another valuable reserve who can haul his share of rebounds off the boards. Fallon stands 6-3 and is a 180pounder. Studies Come First In his second year as mentor of the Chieftains, 28-year-old Coach O'Brien will have no easy task of building a formidable five to cope with increasingly stronger rivals the college is acquiring. But O'Brien, athlete of the year just six seasons ago' at Tufts University, has been bringing along a unit which shows great possibilities for future campaigns. Stonehill's stiff academic standards multiply O'Brien's problems, since his hoopmen must - besides being topflight players - maintain quality academic records. Assisting ,O'Brien along the road to making the Chieftains an Eastern power is Bob Hegarty of Reading, a Stonehill graduate and former hoop standout. Next With Siena With the current season already at the halfway mark, the

Chieftains have been eyeing I trio of rough encounters that art fast approaching. Saturday night - next homt game for Ston~hill - Siena Col· lege will be invading the Olive Ames High School gymnasium b: North Easton for a clash with the O'Briens. , Then on Feb. 3, homecominr night for Stonehill alumni in th( Southeastern Massachusetts area. the Chieftains will host Fairfie1l' University.

On W ®@~®!ro<dls NEW YORK (NC)-Catholic cemeteries in the Archdiocese of New York and the Dio'cese of Brooklyn have


joined with a number of nonsectarian cemeteries to curtail weekend burials. The move stems from a labor contract provision that went into effect Jan. 1. It calls for overtime pay for Saturday and Sunday work by members of the Cemetery and Greens Attendants Union, Local 365. The ban by nOl)sectarian cemeteries falls with particular harshness on Orthodox and Conservative Jews, who are obliged to bury their dead as quickly as possible. Protests have been lodged with the State Cemetery Board by Orthodox Jewish organizations and mortuary trad'e associations. ' Affects Catholic Cemeteries The Archdiocese of New York : notified undertakers that the \new five-day schedule would apply to Calvary Cemetery in Queens and Gate· of Heaven Cemetery in Hawthorne, N. Y. , The Brooklyn diocese took similar steps for Holy Cross Cemetery in Brooklyn; St. John's Cemetery in. Middle Village;', Mount St. Mary's Cemetery in F1ushing, and St. Clair's and Resurrection cemeteries in Pinebiwn. Many of the cemeteries involved in the change said they would permit burials on one of the weekend days if there was illness in the family' or a holiday fell on a Monday. , "Serious Crisis' .

WASHINGTON (NC) - A copy of a papal treaty drawn up in the 15th century was presented here by Spanish Ambassador Mariano de Ytul'Talde to an official of the Jamestown (Va.) Foundation. The treaty, drawn up by Pope Alexander VI (1492-1503), in 1494 divided the Western Hemisphere between Spain and Portugal. This division was not acceptable to the two nations, however, and the treaty was not finally signed until 1506. In the final division, Spain was given additional rights to territory that later developed as the Philippine Islands, and Portugal received the territory that is now Brazil. The document was copied in the Spanish Archives of the Indies in Seville, Spain, and was brought to the U. S, by Jose de 1& Pena, director of the archives.

Church, but also because of his special interest in' the Newman mqvement, stemming from his own days as a Catholic' chaplain !it an Italian state university, Father Albright said.
