where Faith comes in," Bishop Connolly has told his flock. The Ordinary stressed the theme in his "Faith and Freedom" Lenten pastoral which was read at all masses-in all diocesan churches last weekend. Bishop Connolly emphasized that "works of creation do not change. But we do, because we are free." The Bishop's letter:

'New Rite For Mass Clarity, Reform SimplificClItion" Invite Great-eli' Participation The new rite of the Mass, effective March 22, 1970, encompasses the reforms and simplifications wished by the Fathers of the Second Vatican Council. There has been a strong emphasis on simplicity, the clarity and truthfulness of the rites and signs used and a greater invitation for a 'wider participation by all the faithful. The documents strongly urge a real celebration by the people, presided by the priest, in which as many people have duties as possible. To make this as effective as possible, the celebrants (priest and people) have options -various rites for various occasions-to make the actual celebration of Mass as fruitful, rewarding and effective ~s possible. Entrance Rite Preparations: The altar should be covered with at least one cloth. Two candles (or four or six for solemnity) and a crucifix are to be provided and may Turn to Page Ten

"God made man free, and left him to make his own decisions. Before man is life and death, good and evil, and whatever he chooses will be given him." Book of Deuteronomy. Beloved in Christ: "Our text stresses the fact that man is born free, God willed it so. The heavens proclaim the power and glory of their Maker: They move in preordained pat-

terns. They have no choice. The earth on which we live could be as barren as the moon if we had no atmosphere. That is what makes the difference. There could be no life, no changing seasons, nor warmth, nor vegetation without it. This is the wonder of the universe. But man, "made in the image and .likeness of God" possessed' of power to do good or evil,路 is a greater wonder. "Works of creation do not change. But we do, because we are free. Civilizations flourish and die as men seek noble or selfish ends, The fact of our high aspirations is evidence of God's existence. With God, man can perfect his nature. Without God, we are weak and puny, next to nothing. Here is where Faith comes in. The fact of our existence on the only planet that

sustains life, our insistence on freedom, the conscience that distinguishes right from wrong cannot be E'xplained by chance. "Reason tells us that much; but revelation puts it on a solid base of certainty. "God made man free, and left him to make his own desisions, right or wrong, heaven or hell, and what we choose will be given us." Evil is not willed, but tolerated by a Divine Providence that takes the consequences for giving man freedom. "Our troubled times are the fruit of free-will abused. This is far more evident in a smug society, with racial discrimination, and callous concern to get on, get honor, and then 'get honest, than it should be. There is freedom of speech, but it is used to villify or bear false witness

against one's neighbor. There is freedom of the press, but that is too often used to propagandize. There is freedom of religion, but that does not mean freedom to fight one another. Truth is e,ssential and truth must prevail. There is freedom of conscience, but conscience cannot be blind and must: not be stubborn. There is the cherished freedom to dissent that most of us wait to produce one constructive idea, "Faith has its place here. In man's relationship one to another there must be trust; there must be willingness to serve and secure peace, on every level, supported by justice. "We are not to build on prejudices. We do not prove our virtue, like the Pharisee, by despising the rest of men, or nations. Turn to Page Seventeen

Seek Ruling on Consftitutionality of Catholic School Aid The General Court of the State' of Massachusetts is attempting to come to the aid of parochial schools and

thereby help the cause of all education in the State. In a proposal, draft no. 370, presented to the Committee on Education by Kevin B. Harrington, Senator of the Second Essex District,' the Commonwealth was apprised of the need for such aid and the manner in which the State could help. The reasons for help at this time were enumerated by the Senator: "Whereas the general court hereby determines. and declares that a time of acute public exigency and distress now exists in commonwealth with respect PARIS (NC)-The French the to educating its children, due to bishops support Pope Paul's. the combination of an extreme decision to keep obligatory increase in the cost of educaand an intense new recognicelibacy for priests of the tion tion of the need of all young Latin rite.

"The bishops of France, like ail the bishops of the universal Church, will always be available to work with him who confirms their brothers in the faith. "In France, for some time now, a reflection has been coming to light and the ministry and life of priests. "Let us say again: We are calling to the priesthood only men who have decided to lead a consecrated celibate life. Priests released from their obligations cannot exercise their priestly ministry.

Begins on March 22 WASHINGTON (NC)-Twenty-five years of scholarly ecumenical' cooperation will reach a climax on March 22 when the newly approved Lectionary of Scripture readings and Psalm Responsaries is introduced into the Sacred Liturgy of the Mass. The American Version, as it is added that the "collaboration of to be called, has been trans- several non-Catholic biblical scholars in the new translation lated from the original lan- gives the work an ecumenical

guages by American biblical scholars, Catholic and Protestant, all members of the Catholic Biblical Association of America. "A great majority of the faithful will be hearing the word of God in a fresh, meaningful, dignified, and thoroughly intelligible vernacular translation in the language of today, said Father Stephen Hartdegen, O.F.M., of the United States Catholic Conference Division of Religious Education (CCD). First Father Hartdegen told NC News Service that the New American Version will soon be published in its entirety besides its use in the new Lectionary. He described the work as "the first translation in the United States of the entire Catholic Bible made directly from the original languages into English." Father Hartdegen noted the New Testament portion is not related to and should not be confused with the readings of the Roman Missal in use since 1964, nor with the revision of the Rheims - Challoner revision from the Vulgate in 1941. Faithful "It attempts to avoid' 'Bible English' of any period, 'archaisms, words"or speech patterns, no longer in use," he said. "It does not confine itself to a limited vocabulary, nor is it modern-journalistic in style. It seeks to be as faithful as possible to the various styles of the biblical authors." "The new text reads beautifully, and carefully avoids the snags to which objection was made in the 1964 Lectionary due, understandably, to the haste with which the text was ordered to be prepared for the liturgical changes of that time," Father Hartdegen continued. He

Answers Attack On' Mission·ers ROME (NC)-British Member of Parliament Woodrow Wyatt was "talking through his hat" when he accused Catholic missioners of spreading pro-Biafra propaganda, according to one of the missioners. "Our people were suffering desperate hunger, and we asked the world to get food to them," said Father Dermot Doran, C S.Sp., who helped organize the massive airbridge that brought about 60,000 ·tons of food and medicines to the blockaded zone. "You can't call that propaganda. You can't call that political. Whoever this Woodrow Wyatt is, he's talking through his hat." In the House of Commons Laboritt! Wyatt attacked Catholic missioners and Catholics in key posts in the British mass media for allegedly slanting Nigerian news in favor of Biafra. He claimed also that the British mass media had shown a pro-Biafra bias and that one of the main causes for this were the Catholic missionaries in Biafra who had been going about putting out propaganda.

character." Sample A sample of the New American Version found in the Lectionary is the following passage from Paul's letter to the Philippians: 1,20-24, 27. "Christ will be exalted through me, whether I live or die. For, to me, "life" means Christ; hence dying is so much gain. If, on the other hand, I am to go on living in the flesh, that means productive toil for me-and I do not know which to prefer. I am strongly attracted by both: I long to be freed from this life and to be with Christ, for that is the far better thing; yet it is more urgent that I remain alive for your sakes. Conduct yourselves, then, in a way worthy of the gospel of Christ."

Ask Alleviation Of Poverty'

THE ANCHORThurs., Feb. 12, 1970

Seminary Figures On Voc.ations Can Mislea.d

SYDNEY (NC) - The Australian bishops· have called for the. alleviation of poverty in Austra: - lia and for increased Australian " aid to developing nations. In a statement issued at the end of the first of their two meetings for 1970, the bishops said: "We are convinced that the alleviation of poverty and the removal of its causes should rate high in the priorities of people of all religious persuasions. "Here in Australia, there are pockets of poverty which could. and should, be eliminated without undue delay by appropriate action from our parliamentary representatives." The bishops also called for increasing acceptance by Australia of its obligation to" help de'veloping nations. They expressed the hope that in the 1970's Australian aid and trade help to those nations will expand even beyond the one per cent of gross national product that the United Nations has set as an appropriate level of assistance.

ST. PETERSBURG (NC) - A seminary rector' said here statistics designed to show a shortage in vocations tG the. priesthood can be misleading. Msgr. Thoma~ P. Campbell, rector of ·the Pontifical College Josephinum, Worthington, Ohio, told a meeting of the seminary's alumni here. "The key statistic, as far as vocations are concerned, is the number of men ordained to the priesthood each year.. In 1969 there were 168 more priests ordained than in 1968, so the decline in vocations figure can be very alarming, but also very misleading." . Up and Down Msgr. Campbell said that from 1956 to 1966, vocations to the priesthood in this' c0!1ntry doubled. Then, from 1966 to 1969. "there was a 20 per cen't drop," he added. "The big decrease was in hi~h school seminarians' where only one in 16 or 17 eventually are ordained to the priesthood," he said. Chief reason for the drop in high school seminarians was the closing of many high school seminaries, he noted, citing as examples the closin~ of the high school seminaries of the Josephinurn and of St. Gregory Seminary in Cincinnati. "'This automatically meant 500 less seminarians. When we consider the great number of high .school seminaries that are no longer in existence, we can appreciate why there is a 20 per cent drop in vocations," the monsignor said. Record Msgr. Campbell said there are 221 enrolled in college work and theology at the Pont.ifical Colle~e Josephinum. "This is a record for our 80year history. We had never had 200 before.· Every room in college and theolo~y is now occupied. The nice thing about this figure is that the bulle of the enrollment is in first year college and first year theology. We have 51 first year collegians and 34 first year theologians. This gives us great hope for the future," he declared. He said the drop-out rate at Josephinum last year was 13' per cent, including students transferring to another seminary and leaves of absence. He said: "This was a record low.".

Orthodox Leader Pleads for Unity

ATLANTIC CITY (NC)Eighteen thousand educators are expected to attend the National Catholic Educational Association's annual convention slated for March 30 to April 2 here, to explore the "global dimension" of Catholic education. Among those who wilJ highlight the convention program are Dr. James E. Allen, Jr., U. S. Commissioner of Education; Joseph Califano, special assistant to former President Lyndon Johnson; Terence Cardinal Cooke of New York; Norman Cousins, editor of the Saturday Review; James Farmer, assistant secretary for administration, U.

Father Joseph A. von Hartleben, Camden diocesan school superintendent, is general chairman. The convention theme, Catholic Education: The Global Dimension, is an observance of International Education Year, desi~nated for 1970 by the United Nations. Father C. Albert Koob, O. Praem., NCEA president, said International Education Year calls for Catholic educators "to attain a broader view of what It means to be a Christian today, a better grasp of the interrelationships of cultures, and a better comprehension of the fact that the problems of world starvation, racial bitterness, and armed conflict can be approached only via the educational route."

Members of almost every religious order active on the mainland came in at least token numbers. By 1955, there were 378 priests and 222 Sisters working here. Today there are 364 Chinese and 446 foreign priests, and 701 Chinese and 422 foreign Sisters in Taiwan. ' Peak In 1957 The 1950s also saw a wave of conversions, reaching its peak in 1957 when there were more than 25,000 adult Baptisms. The number of Catholics in Taiwan passed 100;000 that year, and though conversions began declining gradually Catholics numbered more than 300,000 by 1968.

A Jesuit-operated radio and television program service with its own facilities and studios. two radio broadcasting stations, and 7 publishing houses have been established. The fact remains, however, that conversions have slowed down cpnsiderably. In 1969, there were less than 5,000 adult Baptisms, and Mass attendance .~as iropped off.

Book Available WASHINGTON (NC) - Rep. Daniel J. Flood of Pennsylvania, a co-sponsor of a Congressional resolution to make available a book on Captive Nations Week, observed annually since 1959, said the book can be used in many ways in bringing attention to the problems faced by captive nations. This anthology of proclamations and statements is available from the Government Printing Office. '

NEW YORK (NC)-The head of the Greek Orthodox church in North and South America underscored that the fundamental characteristics of Orthodoxy" as a religion of reconciliation," arc "true piety and Christian peaceseeking." The message of Archbishop lakovis was read from the pulpits of all Greek Orthodox churches, emphasizing that while the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is observed Jan. 18 to 2~i, "every day and every week of our 'ecclesiastical calendar constitutes a prayer 'for the stabliity of the holy churches of God and for tine union of all.... Th,~ archbishop's letter stated in part: "Chrisitan union is a subject wholly and deeply rooted in the Orthodox conscience. It is a subject that requires a meditated and wholeheartedly approved analysis and dissemination of the Orthodox Faith on it. It is a subject of inner unity and agreement of faith, conscience, and life. It is a subject aimed at reconciliation and as such is in need of devotion and service on our part. "It requires knowledege and deep understanding of our Orthodoxy, a system of belief and practice' much greater in essence and significance than mere words, insults, accusations, and anti-Christian anathemas. All these abuses are characteristic of people wrongly believing, not of people correctly believing, as the term Orthodox signifies for the true member of our Church."

The Pope noted that councils Qf the past have tended toward condemnations of errors, but t~at "the teachings of the Second Vatican Council aim- instead at emphasizing what should be prQised, appreciated, done and hoped for." The Second Vatican Council produced a good "spirit," the Pope said, which is "the heart of the healthy optimism which seems to come forth from the moral style of the entire council."

The work of a priest is not alone to be an ~nter­ mediary between God and men and to give sacraments. He has the role of proclaiming the things of, God: and their importance by his very being. He insists on thi$ not only by his' words and acts but by ·his very state.! And his celibate state shows that he is willing to sacrifice, to underline his sincerity and his conviction that'! God does matter. \ His celibacy is an overwhelming argument to: the world that men are willing to make sacrifices for God and for those whom they would draw to God. It i~ an argument of being, of act, and not of words alone. A priest may be brilliant or average, holy or striving! for holiness, an eloquent speaker or a fumbler. ~lt wor~s. ;But the fact that he has deliberately given up the married state shows his utter selflessness, his complete giv~ng" his wholehearted generosity. As he walks down the street each day he· is a man of meaning, a continuing sign that God and God's people "are worth this sacrifice on his part. As the late great Cardinal Suhard of Paris once wrote: , "To be a witness does not mean to spread propaga~da, or even to create an impression, but to create a mystery. It means livirig in such a way that one's life would i be inexplicable if qod did not exist." The priest is called: to be such a witness. And his acceptance of .celibacy attests to such witnessing as few other acts of his could.. ,.!,

C,onduct Fast WASHINGTON (NC) - Two anti-war groups are conducting a 70-day fast in front of the White House here in the nation's capital. Objectives, according to its sponsors, are to show that there arll thousands of people still con· cCl'ned about the Nixon Administration's Vietnam policies and that they are willing to publicly dedicate themselves to the cause of peace. Clergy and Laymen Concerned About Vietnam and the Fellowship of Reconciliation are sponsoring the fast which will cover the Lenten and Passover periods. A statement issued by the' Lenten·Passover Fast Action Project declared: "We choose, willingly, and with no illusions of the possible political effect, to fast for a period of time ,from Feb. 11 until April 27. To say that we have no illusions about the possibility of peace being declared because of our actions, is not to say that our actions are vain attempts to reach the President of the United States and illtcit from him a positive response for peace. 'Moral Imperative' "We will fast because we do want that response from the chief executive. But we will fast first and primarily because that is what we believe Our Lord would have us do during these days." Groups from across the nation have been invited to participate, wi.th each person being asked to make a commitment to fast for 24, hours or longer. The statement said that "while it is debatable whether this action will produce a new world without war, it is nevertheless true that it has the potential of producing new people who will work harder for peace. "We fast because we feel there is a moral imperative at this time to do so. We fast beClwse we must."

The kids were decked out in the most outlandish costumes I h~ve ever witnessed in one assemblage, representative of every decade since the "Gay Nineties" and except for a few exceptions were cute and kind of fun. We arrived between shows and rather than brave the cold we decided to enter the theatre midway through the feature, This left us seated as the crowd entered and left the show between performances. One thing that struck me immediately was that the incoming crowd was rather excited about getting a good seat, going out for popcorn, etc., and I couldn't help but' think back to my own early teen Saturday morning and afternoon experiences in the local theatre, when we looked forward with great enthusiasm to a day at the movies.

The movie was obvlously anti-military and was emob tionally moving,ut we were overwhelmed when' the 'audience broke Into 16IJd' cheers' and handclapping when the villains were given their comeuppance. This was a spontaneous reaction of the crowd which was repeated three or four Umes during the movie.

Says Cesar Chavez Needed By Consumers of Am,erica'

Back Nuns Stand On Integ'ration

By Marilyn Roderick

NEW ORLEANS (NC) - The executive committee of the New Orleans Catholic Human Relations Commission has endorsed the policy adopted recently by the Conference of Major Superiors of Women. The stand taken by 23 orders of nuns was concerned about possible transfers of white students to Catholic schools now undergoing integration. The Sisters said they were prepared to withdraw from any school which they felt practiced segregation. They further called for a positive program within all Catholic schools to assure substantial interracial and intercultural educliltion of all students. In announcing the endorsement, F. Winter Trapolin, president of the commission, also announced that a committee is being set up to' study the goals and nature of Christian education and' to draft a set of admissions policies which it will recommend for parochial schools. The committee will study the effect of past practices and conditions in order to recommend more effective ways of integrating school life.

M'em,orial Service Christians, Jews Pray at Jerusalem Shrine for Nazi Victims JERUSALEM (NC) - A Catholic priest and a Jewish layman who both lost close members of their families in Nazi' concentration camps took part in a memorial service at Yad Vashem Martyrs' and Heroes' Shrine on Remembrance Hill here as an interreligious group of 60 Amer.ican journalists watched. The commemorative ceremony was held in the rectangular Hall of Remembrance, on a somber gray mosaic floor inscribed with' the names of Hitler's 21 largest. death camps. The Religious Journalist's Middle East Conference, a tour of Catholic, Protestant~, and Jews, stood hushed around the memorial area. A wreath was set on a raised slab by Msgr. John M. Oesterreicher of South Orange, N. J., Dr. Joseph L. Litchen of New York, and the Rev. Alfred P. Klausler, executive secretary of the Associated Church Press of Chicago. Msgr. Oesterreicher, a Jewish convert in his youth, read a prayer he had compiled, including some of the idioms taken from the daily Jewish prayer book. The priest, whose father died at Theresienstadt and whose mother was killed at Auschwitz, said he had also brought away from the shrine testimony forms about other relatives and friends to be filed in the Hall of Names at Yad Vashem. "We trust that the murdered victims now live under the wings of your love," he prayed. "Still, the evil deed can not be undone. "What can be done is that we alliive worthy of their memory. Their angui!?h must compel particularly us who are Christians to be on the side of the perse-

cuted and never on the side of the persecutors." Partners, Frienclls Msgr. Ooesterreicher became a Catholic when he was a student at the University of Vienna. He was ordained in 1927. He fled Austria five weeks after Hitler came in, and twice escaped the Gestapo. The tour was his first trip to Israel and he was impressed most with the "peacefulness" of the country. It did not seem "foreign." Catholic-Jewish dialogue here, he said, is primarily among the intellectual elite. It is among scholars who are "partners and friends" who now "look forward" to greater rapprochement with Moslems. "It is my impression that the rights of Christians to visit the shrines will be safeguarded by the Israelis," the monsignor said. Several government spokesmen had supported this in various statements -to the groups. Dr. Lichten, director of Intercultural Affairs of the AntiDefamation League of B'nai B'rith, lost his first wife and daughter at Belsen-Belsen, and his parents in' other death camps. Attached to the POlish embassy in the U. S., he never return~d to Poland.

POONA (NC) - India's Christian Democratic Party called here for recognition of the entire~ Christian community in the country as a backward group eligible for spzcial government aid. Pointing out that the community is in reality an economically weak section, the party's national executive board said Christians should be included in the list of baGkward classes so that they would enjoy special educational, economic and employment opportunities. The executive board decided to launch a struggle in the event the central and state governmEmts fail to take satisfactory steps to meet the demand. Government authorities have long taken the stand that the special privileges of backward communities are the preserve of members of the Hindu backward groups. Converts to Christianity frol!l these groups lose some of their old privileges when they change religion.

At arrival in the sanctuary, the priest and assistants make reverence to the Blessed Sacrament, the altar (kiss) and go directly to the place from which the priest will preside. . The priest will then greet th.e participants. The answer of the people is now simpler and mo~e natural: "And also with you" instead of "And with your spirit." A brief introduction to' the Mass is given-:-the nature of the feast, the particular occasion to cel,ebrate, etc. There follows a brief penitential rite during which the priest invites ali to penance, an examination of conscience and an expression of contrition. This is done by all together and not first by the priest and then by the people as before. The Kyrie, if it was not used in the penitential rite, then is recited with the people. simply responding to the invocation of the priest and no longer. the intricate threefold recitations. The Gloria, with slight. translation changes and simplifications is then sung or recited. The priest then invites all to pray (no greeting first) and after a brief private pray'er, he recites the Collect for which he has many choices. Liturgy of Word Normally, three readings will form the Liturgy of the Word: one' from the "Prophets" (Old Testament), one from the ."Apostles" (New Testament) and finally the Gospel. ' The first two readings, to be delivered. by a lector, are always , ended by "This is the Wurd of the Lord," to which all respond "Thanks be to God." After the first reading, a cantor or commentator will respond (with the people) with the Gradual psalm. Following the second reading by the lector, the response will be that of the Alleluia or Tract. The priest will then recite the Gospel. His preparation has been shortened to "Almighty God, cleanse my heart and my lips that I may worthily proclaim Your Gospel." He ends the Gospel with "This is the Gospel of the Lord" and all respond. "Praise to You, Lord Jesus Christ." The homily follows and the announcements are not to be made at this time. The Creed will sometimes follow (with some translation changes) as will the Prayer of the Faithful. Liturgy of Eucharist Offertory: The antiphon may be omitted if not sung. It is recommended that the gifts be brought to the priest by membersof the congregation. . The bread will be offered with the prayer: "Blessed are You, Lord, God of all creation, Through Your. goodness we have this bread to offer, which earth has given and human hands have made. It will become for us the bread of life." If the people are not singing, they answer "Blessed be God forever." The other prayers of the Offertory have been shortened but remain about the same.

Prelate Declares Schools Source Of Leadership

Boy DrOI)·Outs Philadelphia Survey Shows Large Number Of High Schoolers Miss Sunday Mass

LOS ANGELES (NC)-

The new Archbishop of Los Angeles went to the heart of the Mexican-American community here and pledged to continue spending money on Catholic schools because "they are a source of leadership." The neighborhood was upset several weeks ago by demonstrations of Mexican - American groups, protesting the spending by the archdiocese of too much money on church buildings, hospitals and other institutions, instead of channeling it to Mexican-American poor. Archbishop Timothy Manning, in a sort of homecoming, went to Bishop Mora Salesian High School, which has a student body of 900 boys. He blessed the schools's new gym, which also will serve the neighborhood community, and offered Mass. Except for two years when he was bishop of Fresno, the archbishop had come to the school each year since its founding in 1958 on the feast of St. John Bosco and celebrated Mass. Center of Unity The archbishop spoke particularly of the relationship between the community and its bishop in his homily at the Mass. "The one who holds the office of bishop may be very fal1ible," he said, "but in God's plan h e holds the center of unity. Anyone who fragments this, who distorts this center of unity, fragments the body of Christ. "Consequently," he continued, "in your life there must be a sensitivity to this center of unity at aH times." In this sensitivity, he said, the bishop must be recognized as "the supreme teacher in the community. He may not be the wisest or the most bril1iant, but he is the center of the authentic teaching of the Church." Priesthood First Student body president Ray Chavez, on behalf of the students, told the archbishop: "We hope we shaH profit from our education. We know the work and sacrifice it takes to keep up the school. We realize that people from all over the diocese contribute to keep this operation going." . Archbishop Manning, responding to Chavez's talk, said that in d~signating priorities that he would follow for the archdiocese, he placed the priesthood first and then education. "I am asked why we spend so much money on Catholic schools. My response is that they are a source of leadership," he declared.

Schedule Closing Of Two Schools ST. PAUL (NC) - Two high schools operated by the Christian Brothers in the archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis will close at the end of the present school year, the archdiocesan education board announced. Board chairman Jerome Julius said "further drastic steps" would 'be necessary without state and federal financial aid. The two schools to be closed are Benilde High School in St. Louis Park, which has an enrollment of 830 boys, and Hill High School in Maplewood, which enrolls 861 boys. The Ghristian Brothers operate two other boys' high schools in the archdiocese and administer two coeducational high schools.

THE ANCHOR-Diocese of Fall River-Thurs., Feb. 12: 1970

PHILADELPHIA (NC)-A poll of boys attending Catholic high schools in this area disclosed that 38 per cent are not attending Sunday Mass regularly. The survey was made among 1,793 boys in six archdiocesan high schools located in city and suburban areas by the BucksMontgomery area' Serra Club, devoted to encouraging vocations for the priesthood. The tally shows 38.4 per cent do not attend Mass at all or attend only occasionaHy. Mass at-

tendance was 72.5 per cent among freshmen but dropped sharply among students in upper c1asst:s to 58 per cent. Benjamin Romine, survey chairman, said 71 per cent favor a' special Mass for young people and 62 per cent feel such an arrangement would increase Mass attendance. "The Church in general has to have some program which is youth oriented," Romine concluded.

Questions Delay Alderman Seeks Investigati,on of Case Involvin'g P'riest CHICAGO (NC)-The case of Father Carl Lezak versus the Chicago Committee on Urban Opportunity (CCUO) has reached the Chicago City Council. Father Lezak, 32, an assistant pastor at St, Sebastian Church here, has not been approved by CCUO ,as an advisory board committee member for the Montrose Urban Progress Center even though he was elected to the post 17 months ago. Robert Lerner, Montrose advisory board chairman, told • Father Lezak that Mrs. Murrell Syler, CCUO executive director, explained the confirmation delay by allegedly calling the priest a ."subversive" and a "pinko," among other things. . Alderman William Singer has introduced a resolution in the city council cal1ing for an investigation of the case. Singer asked that a committee be formed to discover what procedures are used by CCUO to place people on advisory councils. The resolution was referred to the rules committee. Singer said in his resolution the CCUO director claimed Father Lezak "would not be approved because he had aHegedly failed to pass an FBI investi~ation."

The CCUO director, the resolution said, "would not reveal any information regarding Rev. Lezak's status other than he had not been confirmed." Father Lezak, it added, "had no opportunity to respond to malicious and unwarranted charges." Singer concluded that "the entire process by which members are appointed to these advisory councils is called into question." Mrs. Syler was unavailable for comment. However, CCUO public relations agent Robert Jackson said Mrs. Syler <tenied ever having called anyone "an American, a Communist, or a pinko." She refused further comment, he said. Mrs. Syler has been CCUO executive director for 10 months. Asked why Father Lezak has not been cleared, when he might be, what the norms of clearance are, and who does the clearing, Jackson answered, "No comment."

In an announcement made by Jack Valenti, president of the Motion Picture Association of America; Eugene Picker, president of the National Association of Theatre Owners; and Munio Podhorzer, member of the governing board of the International Film Importers and Distributors of America, the results ofa nationa,1 survey on the rating systern and statistics' from over 3,000 theaters were ~eleased.. "When the system went into effect on Nov. I, 1 1968 ," the statement began" "we said we would keep it constantly under review and would make a reexamination at the end of a year's trial period.

Consequently, the age limit for the "X" rating, (which formerly meant "No one under 16 admitted" under any circumstances) was also raised to 17, though age limits may vary in certain areas. Symbols in Ads In addition to "GP", "R", and "X", the film rating system' also includes "G" for films considered suitable for general audienc'es. A survey conducted by a group of young executives in the National Association of Theatre Owners, said that 89 per cent of the 3,164 theaters polled across the country "usually" or "always" used the rating symbols in 'their advertisements. In addition, the' Opinion Research Corporation survey indicated -that 58 per cent of 'the '2,600 people questioned found the ,rating system "very useful" to' "fairly useful'" in helping them decide, the proper movies for children to view. And 70 per cent of the teenage moviegoers polled found the system useful. "The Code and Rating Adininistration will immediately Start using the revised ratings," the stafument said, "and the entire program will become effective on a nationawide scale on March I, 1970."

Cardinal Dearden Urges FolI«>,wing Path to Peace

Spread Doctrine TlI1rough Media

DETROIT (NC) - John Cardinal Dearden, cautioning against the complacency which may result by termination of the Nigeria-Biafra conflict, emphasized' that the continued Vietnam war, the Middle East crisis, violence and mount· ing tensions are problems which still must be solved. The archbishop of Detroit, president of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops, asserted "the expenditure of astronomical sums for military purposes" must be limited. The cardinal called for an understanding of those who demonstrate against war and tools of war; of those who have "selective conscientious 'objection" against war. Excessive Nationalism Cardinal Dearden's .statement, published by the Michigan Catholic, archdiocesan newspaper, was viewed as supporting principles against violence and poverty asserted byArchbishop Heider Pessoa Camara of Olinda and Recife, Brazil, during his visit here. The cardinal recalled the antiwar views expressed by Pope Paul VI before the United Nations in 1965 and in the col.: lective pastoral of the U.S. bishops in 1968. "Certainly, the expenditure of astronomical sums for military purposes must be limited.

'Parents' without Partners' Aid Each Other In Adjusting to Solo Parenthood

MILWAUKEE (NC)-An advisory communications committee to help spread Christian doctrine through modem communications media has been named by Archbishop William E. Cousins of Milwaukee. Dr. John P. Treacy, professor emeritus of education at Marquette University here, is temporary chairman. In announcing the committee, the archbishop commented: "The Apostles were told by Christ to teach His Doctrine to all nations. He did not suggest to them specific ways or means, but left it to their own ingenuity to preach effectively. "I see this advisory committee as an apostolic group of experts recognizing the task of the Church to teach, bringing a layman's viewpoint to a better meeting of our responsibility." A similar committee to advise in administrative and financial matters was appointed by Archbishop Cousins a year agc. The committee has already had some formative. meetings, according to Dr. Treacy, out of which an objective has been outlined: "To help people develop an understanding and appreciation of archdiocesan problems, policies and programs and to project the true image of the Catholic Church."

Association Objects To Parish Listing CHICAGO (NC) - The coordinating board of the Association of Chlcgo Priests (ACP) has issued "a statement of concern" to its members and to daily newspapers here which recently printed a list of parishes "not recommended for assignments for young priests" drawn up by the Young Priests' Caucus (YPC). The YPC, formed last Spring bl~cause few young priests were elected to ACP's board, drew up a list of all parishes in the Chicago archdiocese, following investigation by the YPC's 11man grievance board. The ACP's statement charged that the YPC "did not consult either the pastors nor the associates assigned to the parishes, and made some judgments on secondary evidence." APC' said the young priests' action, "publicized as it was in the daily press, was a cause of hurt and bewilderment to many clergy, Religious and laity in the Roman Catholic Church, Such an action was without precedent in the history of the archdiocese."

Lenten Pa,storal Continued from Page One Our Blessed Lord, echoed by St. John and St. Paul, summed up the whole ,message of religion by insisting that we love God first, and then our neighbor as ourselves. "How can anyone say he loves God, Whom we do not see, when he hates his neighbor whom he sees?" "Little children love one another as I have loved you," such was Our Lord's last message to the apostles. "We are all stewards spending God-given talents to make the world better for our being h<;re, and to enrich our souls so that we may find ourselves at home in heaven. "As we go into the Lenten season, we know that it shares in the mortification and Passion of Christ. There should be sacrifice; otherwise we lack something essential. And surely there has to be prayer. Here is where we find ourselves at our best. "Mind and heart and will turn in adoration and thanks to the Good God Who sent us a Redeemer. We renew and share His offering of Himself for us in holy Mass. In every parish, Our Lord on the altar is the first and chief parishioner. He wants us to join with Him in giving praise and thanks to the Father. We ap- . r-roach Him through 'Christ Our Lord, Amen.' He is our media" tor. He lives to make intercession for us. "As good Catholics, we believe this. But do we always act in the belief? Is our prayer chiefly a matter of what we want? Is it prompted more by need than by Faith? "Is there not such a thing as prayer of gratitude or fervent thanks for all that God has done for us: health, home, happiness, and the undeserved summons to an eternity with the bll::ssed. Ev~ry day, w~, are, hlV(~ed ..tp 'proclaim the mystery of Faith: and we reply: 'Christ has died, Christ is risen, Christ will come again.' In the hope of a glorious Resurrection. we live through Lent. If our Faith is faint, we pray God to strengthen it. 'I believe, o God, help my unbelief.' 'Lord teach us to pray.' If we are stifled and discouraged in good intent, we might well turn thinks around, and ask to be made instruments of peace, replacing hatred by love, injury by pardon, seeking more to understand than to be understood, more happy to give than to receive. "This is like providing an antidote to cure disease. And there is sickness of soul in society today. Too much self-pity, too much escapism, too much concern for ourselves. In a spirit of Christian confidence, let us cast our cares on the Lord. He is as near to us as our conscience. It is a pity that we talk together so little. Talking to the Lord is prayer. May we have more of it, confident, constant, remembering that there are things religious, social, and material that only we can do. "If we fail to grasp the chance to be peace-maker, comforter, or guide in and out of the home, things go from bad to worse. "Here I am, Lord, send me," must always be part of prayer. 'What would you have 'me do?' "But the best prayer is the Lord's Prayer. 'Our Father, hallowed be Thy Name. Thy Will be done on earth, as it is is heaven. Forgive us as we forgive th9se about us. Let us not be left to fall into temptation, but deliver us from evil." Freedom is a great gift, but it must always be tested in the light of Faith.

LONDON (NC) - Auxiliary Bishop Christopher Butler, O.S.B. of Westminster proposed at a London unity service the idea of a "g)'eat church" of the future in 'which a separate Anglican Church would be in communion with Rome and acknowledge the primacy of the Pope. The Bishop, vicar general to John Cardinal Heenan and one of the leading intellectuals in the English church, said that under such a scheme the Anglicans could retain their own bishops, liturgy and other traditions. He said he did not consider the field of disagreement between the two churches involved essentials. Bishop Butler told reporters later that papal primacy should not present any greater difficulty to Anglicans in the future than the present formal status of Queen Elizabeth as "Supreme Governor" of the Church of England. The bishop, himself a former Anglican and now a member of the Joint Permanent AnglicanRoman Catholic Unity Commismission liere, said the proposal was not new. It was made as long ago as the Malines Conversations in the 1920s when English Catholics and Anglicans held unofficial talks at Malines, Belgium, on the question of reunion. "It is entirely orthodox," he added.

It's been a cold Winter, but plenty of "heat" will be generated in area gymnasiums this coming week as six local teams stage do-or-die batttles for post-season tournament bids.

, secured by schools located within the confines of diocesan territorial limits. However, Southeastern Massachusetts could possibly send a total of 10 to the "Tech." Most· high schools within the diocese are rated in the Class C tournament bracket. Thus, the area annually has a stronger representation in this particular class. This year is no exception. The Narragansett League will be bidding for its third consecutive Class C title come March when its representatives will again be Case High of Swansea and Holy Family High of New Bedford. A year ago, the Parochials won the title and the year before, Case. In those two seasons the rivals

tween the two went right down to the wire with Case edging the Blue Wave both times. The two losses in one season, in Narry play, were the first suffered by Coach Jack Nobrega since he took over at the New Bedford school 10 years ago. A third confrontation in tournament action should prove very interesting. But, the Narry clubs will have to defeat strong opponents before that possibility arises. Possible Class C foes include Lawrence High of Falmouth and Oliver Ames of Easton. The Clippers are headed for the Capeway Conference championship Oliver Ames in the tough Hockomock League.

Two Ding-Dong Cape Battles Coach Ray Charron's Cape club has a two-game lead with three remaining and would have to suffer a complete let down, which seems unlikely, in order to "blow" the championship. If the Clippers annex the title, it will be Lawrence High's third of the scholastic year. Falmouth captured the Capeway Conference football title last Fall, then won the Winter track championship. The Oliver Ames Tigers h8.d . their sights set on the Hockomock League championship before the season began in their determination to give their Coach a title before he relinquishes his basketball duties. Coach Val Muscato will get that championship, and, now his boys have their eyes peeled on another "go out" present - the regional Class C tine. With these four clubs already assured of post-season action, area fans should have enough to cheer about when they make their annual trip to Boston Garden to partake in "March Madness."

But, there may be more, Barnstable and Dennis-Yarmouth, both of the Capeway Conference, have not yet mathematically qualified for the Tech but, in all probability, will be in the C bracket at the conclusion of the season. Entering this week's action the Red Raiders owned a 13-3 record, and the Regionals sported a 12-3 mark. Both should stay above the 70 per cent mark needed for qualification. Three Bristol County League teams still have the opportunity to' qualify for the Class A br.acket as that. loop enters its final phase of the campaign. Durfee High of Fall River has already qualified. The Hilltoppers surprised no one by qualifying, in fact, one wonders what a Tech tourney would be without Durfee. For Tom Karam this Winter will mark his tenth consecutive trip to Boston with his Hilltoppers.· He has never coached a team that did not win the required· 70 per cent. '

J'ust 'Take Durfee for Granted Over the past 26 years, Durfee teams have been among competitors 25 times. And more often than not, Durfee has been one of the best in the elimination competition. At this writing, three Greater New Bedford teams in the County circuit are among Tech hopefuls. With three games remaining New Bedford High and Bishop Stang of Dartmouth must win all to qualify. New Bedford Vocational can lose one. In past years, as many as four of the eight Class A teams in the area have qualified, but, this year indications are that only Durfee and Vocational will make the grade. '

Down on Cape Cod, Harwich and Nauset are hooked-up in a neck-and-neck battle for the Cape and Island League championship. Both, having lost four games in over-all play this Winter, are on the verge of being eliminated from Class D competition. If this happens, the victor will gather the spoils, since league champions automatically qualify for the Tech. In addition to the seven Cape and Island' teams, only Norton of the Tri-Valley Conference is among Class D schools. However, Norton has already been mathematically eliminated from the tourney.

eager from Southeastern Massachusetts to receive first team AII·Scholastic honors. Among the long list of awards, was the coveted King eager Trophy, Walsh received from the New Bedford Basketball Associa· tion. The award is presented annually to the top basketball player in Greater New Bedford. Equal To Task With three seniors and five juniors on this year's St. Anselm's varsity, Coach Al Greenert will be relying an his freshman aces to carry the load over the next three seasons. From past performances Billy should be equal to the task. The Walshs are communicants of St. Lawrence Parish and are avid sports enthusiasts. Both were frequent spectators during Billy's high school appearances. They still follow the activities of the Parochials. Younger son, Paul, a sophomore 's a member of the Holy Family varsity and is one reason why the Blue Wave is presently in second place in the Narry League. Standing only 5-9, the younger Walsh is the ball handler and floor general and plays a strong game on defense. Dr. and Mrs. Paul F. Walsh have a lot to be proud of.
