ATLANTIC CITY (NC) - A Lutheran Church leader said here that the preoccupation of college students with secular values signals the beginning of "a new era of pagan religiosity." Dr. Donald R. Heiges of Chi­ cago, director of college ana-uni­ versity work for the National Lutheran Council, challenged widely held opinions that col­ lege and university campuses are in the midst of a religious awakening. The Lutheran minister ad­ dressed the annual meeting of the council, which represents eight separate church bodies. Dr. Heiges said student interest in' religion reached its peak be­ tween 1946 and 1951, and the student of today is "preoccupied with sccular values and insulated against eternal is:iUes,'' Lutheran campus pastors agreed generally, he stated, that the typical student of today is "self-centered, complacent, utili­ tarian, superficial, socially irre­ sponsible, conformist but tol­ erant."

Theatre Guild Play

On Radio Sunday

"Through Different Eyes," the newest radio pla)r by the talen­ ted Miss Ellen Gaughan, will be broadcast at 7 o'clock next Sun­ day night on WNBH by the Catholic Theatre Guild. Miss Gaughan, a Guild mem­ ber, has written in her warm, inspiring style, an emotionally stirring story of the problems of a blind artist. The story evolves around the artist's struggle to "accept" the new world of darkness in which he finds himself after an auto accident. Most heart-warming is the touching presentation of how, in the artist's intense personal struggle, a fortu.nate friendship with an orphan boy named Jim­ my gives new meaning to the blind man's pitifully drab exist­ ence. The program, the 11 th in this season's series of broadcasts, , will be directed by Christopher A. Best. Organ music will be played by Miss Agnes Ellison. Scouts received the a~ard. The awa,rds were blessed and given out by Rev. Walter A, Sullivan, Diocesan Scout Chaplain, and Rev. William F. O'Connell, Area Chaplain. The sermon was deliv­ erd by Rev. Rene R. Levesque.

"offers little to support a belief in the dignity of men," and its rapid growth poses "one of the greatest challenges to religion," Speaking at a conference on the theme "Religion Faces the Atomic Age," - Dr. Harold C. Urey, nuclear scientist at the University of Chicago, said sci­ ence provides luxuries and necessities but does not add to the belief that man's life is valuable. The conference was sponsored

by the Federated Theological

Faculty of the University of

Chicago; Science Limited Dr. Urey said that as a result of scientific achievements "we can boast today that man pos­ sesses the most magnificent view of a marvelous universe that he has ever had," But he added that science "has in no way given us a valid personal rea­ son for our existence on this planet, or for the belief that each human life is valuable." "In a word," he continued "it offers little to support a b~lief in the dignity of men. It is precisely in this field that reli­ gion has made its great contri­ bution to civilization at all times. In fact, science and its technical applications, tend to lead us to a purely materialistic view of life." "What reason do we give for doing anything today?" Dr. Urey asked. "Our answer seems to be that whatever we propose to do will give' us more food, clothing. shelter, more automObiles, bet­ ter health, better military weap­ ons . . . We do not say that we ~iIl become 'better people; what ~ better or worse; that we will understand our freedoms that we will have a better philoso­ phy governing our lives and our relations with others.

Lent ... A 40, Day Mission The holy season of Lent is upon us.

Lent is a time of mission for the entire Church. As

,the concluding prayer for the blessing of the, ashes, says, "Grant us, 0 Lord, to begin with holy fasts the exercises of' our Chrsitian warfare; that as we are about to battle with the spir:its of evil, ~e may be defended by the aid of self-denial." . \ . , . ., As in every mission, the purpose of this' great mission of Lent is to bring about a spiritual renovation. This work 'is'accomplisped by both God and man: by God, principally through the Holy Eucharist; by man, mainly by fasting and prayer and almsgiving under the inspiration and with the help of God. I The purpose of Lent is not so much to make us dif­ ferent as to uncover to us what·we are-<:hildren of God.. By the fact of Baptism we are children of God, mem­ bers of the family of God, called on to live Christ-like lives, redeemed lives while still in this life of trial and exile. Unfortunately, we do not always live up to our calling. We are not consistently true to our real natures-<:hildren of God bearing .His image 'in our souls. We betray that image by neglect and sin, We need a mission to recall to us what we are and should be. The French Jesuit and spiritual writer, 'Raoul Plus, says: "We need to recall the divine dignity that Baptism ,confers by engrafting us upon Christ Himself, making us living members of the mystical body of Christ w,hich is the Church, communicating to us the very life of the :Blessed Trinity, making us partne:r:s in the royal.priest­ hood of Christ and His Church, uniting us in a common 'kinship with all our baptized brethren by this, spiritual solidarity which' is the communion of saints, consecrating us as living chalices, as living temples to the personal and social worship of the one true God." . . This, then, is the purpose of our 'Lenten prayers and fasting and almsgiving. Not fasting for fasting's sake, but fasting that will ·"curb our vices, lift up our minds, give us strength and reward." Not prayer to multiply words or devotions, but the real contemplation of God,. the striving to come as often as possible into contact with God, th4:! state of habitual recollection. . If to fulfill this program as' children of God entails l!Iacrifice of some indulgence, then all well and good. We are the richer by it. Just as the sculptor .strikes and' chips the m~rble to transform the shapeless block into the radiant statue of his dreams,' so must we fashion our lives with self':denial to draw out our true natures. And with this God-like living crm come the only true happiness and joy.,As Paul Claudel has written: "Whatever you may think, you will never approach happiness without approaching its source, which is God and Christ."

Church Dismantled

Former Security Counsel Warns Of Dangers in Exchange Program NEW YORK (NC) - Robert Morris, former chief counsel for the Senate Internal ~urity subcommittee, told a Catholic press group here he doubted whether the U. S.-Soviet cul­

tural exchange pact will benefit this country. Asserting that "we have been, losing our shirts" in past ex­ cha'nges with the Soviets, Mr. Morris said that formetly Soviet "secret police have passed as farmers, ice skaters, clergymen and scientists for the purpose of conducting espionage operatioNi in. this country." "Our previous exchange dele­ gates," ,lie continued, "have been politically u~trajned people, who, occasionally, were even in­ fluenced by communist propa­ ganda while abroad." Mr. Morris spoke here before' 500 members of the Catholic Institute of the Press at their 14th annual Communion break­ fast. Mr., Morris 'recently resigned as counsel for th~ Senate sub­ committee. He will seek the New Jersey Republican nomination for U. S. Senator in the April 15

Series.of Stamps, To Honor Lourdes

VATICAN cri'Y (NC) ~'A new series of stamps commem­ orating the 100th anniversary of the Lourdes apparitions will

be issued here on Feb. 11 by the Vatican post office..

primary lo succeed Senator·H. Alexander Smith, who is retir­ ing. Failure in Com~uDieations Mr. Morris said this country "has DfaHed to comprehend the regime of the Soviet Union over

the last 12 years."

He attributed this failure to "our flaw in the realm of words" in the mass media ,of communi­ cations. Consequently, he said, the U. S. is "in great peril today," even though it was "the strongest power on earth" after World War II. He urged that this country's delegates develop '''political s0­ phistication" to insure success in the forthcoming exchange. "Every delegation from the Soviet. Union," he asserted, "is an undercover agent for espion­ age, an undercover for the secret police. This 'is their ',advance guard. They are salesmen of despotism." Mr. ,Morris said that testimony given before the Senate sub­ committee from Soviet secret police who defected disclosed that a visiting"delegation of Rus­ sian farmers included "more than one" member of the NKVD and that a visiting group of lICientists was "shot through" with agents.·

Milan Mission Sets Plan ROME (NC)-The two years of planning for last fall's Great Mission of Milan made it "a first class pastoral experiment, worthy of study by all of Italy and even foreign nations." This was stated by Msgr. Francesco Olgiati, professor at Sacred Heart Catholic Univers­ ity of Milan, in an article in the Review of the Italian Clergy. Msgr. Olgiati said the un­ equalled success of the mission preached to 1,400,000 Catholics in Milan's 127 parishes last September resulted from "a long and patient task of or~'8n­ ization which required two years of diligent work." The writer said that each parish, in Archbishop Giovanni B. . Montini's archdiocese wu entrusted to the prayers of a monastery or a convent. In December, 1956, almost" a year before the mission was to be held, pastors were called on' to SODAI..}TY PJROFESSION: Profession into the Ch~ stimulate interest among their , dren of Mary Sodality took place recently at Sacred Heart.l ,parishioners' in the' coming' Academy, Fairhaven.

By Most Rev. Fulton J. Sheen, D.D. Souls are lost. no~ just because of lbe evil they have !lone, but ..Iso because of the (oo.d they have left undone. Our Lord implied this in His parable of the empty house, that was not filled with virtue when evil was driven out. St. Paul also asks:. "How shall we escape if we negleCt?" In his last Encyclical on the Missions. the Holy "'ather asks if we who have the faith are-conscious of our

respousibility to bring the faith to lbe pagan world?

Two areas in the Mission world come to

olir mind, one Africa, the other Viet Nam.

Many Bishops from Central Africa who come

to our office tell us that each year they have to send away from fifty .to a hundred. appli~ cants for the priesthood, because they cannot afford to educate them.

Trappist Seeks Perfume Outlet CINCINNATI (NC) - Every­ thing about Father Eugene Boy­ lan, Irish-born author of the. modern spiritual classic, "This Tremendous Lover,'" is extra­ ordinary. The 54-year-old T rap pis t prior, taut as a harpstring and just as vibrant, came here for a visit with his sister, Mother Mary Fintan, who is in charge. of retreats at the Convent of Mary Reparatrix in nearby Clif- , ton. In a rapid-fire, 15-minute in­ terview, Father Boylan turned out to be not only an authority on lay spirituality ("Interior life for the laity is the most impor­ tant need of the moment") but alsa a marketer of perfume manufactured in his Trappist (monastery off the coast of Wales. He's an international retreat master also, and on his current· tour of the U. S., he will give retreats'to Trappists of five Am­ erican abbeys. Physics Lecturer And if he draws many of his spiritual observations from the world of science, it may be re­ called that before joining the Trappists in 1931 he h,ad lec­ tured in physics at the Univer­ sity of Dublin and had spent three years at the University of Vienna doing research on atomic disintegration. When Sybil Connolly, famed Irish dress designer, asked the Caldey Trappists to develop a new perfume for her, Father Boylan turned the problem over to a Polish chemist who is one of the Trappists there. Now the perfume, "Sybil," is a' regular product of Caldey, along with other perfumes, some of them manufactured from the island's own wild flowers. One of the reasons for Father Boylan's visit to this country is to interest American retailers in· the Caldey products and help keep the monastery solvent.

J;iicia\ls D~ny P~J'ir~'uf'~ To Attend .Lourdes Celebr~t~on

VATICAN CITY (NC)-Vati.­ can officials have denied any knowledge of a rumored forth­ coming trip by His Holiness Pope' XII to the centenat·y celebration at Lourdes. Earlier it had been reported by . a sec~lar news agency that ' the organizing committee of th(~ centennial year celebration said it was preparing for a one-day visit of the Pope next September. . . An officiai of the Vatican Sec­ retariate of State said that noth­ ing has been issued by that of­ fice and that it is douptful that the Pope will travel to Lourdes. 1t is known, he said, that there bas been talk of the Pope's wanting to go to Lourdes and that overtures have been made "from certain quarters;' to en­ courage him to do so. But, he added, nothing has been issued through normal channels say­ ing that he will go.' Bishop Martin J. O'Connor, rector of the ·North. American College and vice-president of the Lourdes centenary commit­ tee here, said that he knew nothing about Vatican consent to preparations for a papal visit to Lourdes. He believes the re­ port false, he said.

Vat:ica,n'Paper Says Reds Withh.old 'Truth About Italian Prisoners

MONTREAL (NC) - Follow­ ing public statements by two members of the Canadian hier­ archy deploring th~ prevalence of obscene literature and calling for official action to stamp out the evil, one of the country's leading secular ·newspapers has called for a clean-up of printed filth. His Eminence Paul Emile Cardinal Leger, Archbishop of Montreal, and Archbishop Mau­ rice Roy of Quebec, Primate of Canada, issued the statements. The Montreal Star declared in an editorial: "The decent people of the community are fed up with the fiithy displays which greet " them from every news­ stand. They are sickened by the flamboyant and suggestive head­ lines of the gutter press. They are worried over this introduc­ tion to the immature to partake of the seamier side of life. They are'deeply concerned, too, over the number of theoretically ma­ ture who must revel in the stench this so-called journalism gives off, else there would not be enough sales to make the ventures pay."

The paper said it is expected that a province-wide action by the Quebec government may be . expected soon. It also pointed out that the Quebec Board of Censors, which primarily is con­ cerned with motion pictures, also .acts in connection with maga­ zines and that now there are

152 of them which dealers are forbidden to handle.

SAN FRANCISCO (NC).,-In­ adequate American support· of fore'ign missions is due to a lack of knowledge, not a lack of gen­ erosity, Auxiliary Bishop Fulton J. Sheen of New York, national director of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith, said here. He.pointed out that the Amer­ ican Catholic per capita dona­ tion to,the missions is an annual 30 cents. He contrasted this fig­ ure with the $54 average annual per capita expenditure for liquor in this country. However, he asserted that H Americans do not· suffer from , want of generosity, but from want of knowledge. They just don't know the need of the mis­ sions. Bishop Sheen declared that the Church is not wasting men and money by missionary efforts in ):emote and often ho~tile areas. "Judas called it a waste when ointment was poured on the feet of Our Lord,". he said, "but it was not a waste. . . We should not be discouraged. We are all called to be witnesses to the truth, 'to Christ, and we must not measure missionary prosperity

as the world measures 'it.. ,Bishop Sheen said that the greatest mission need at present is a large· number of native clergy. He pointed to last year's total of 548,000 converts in Africa and declared that "whole countries would be Catholic to­ morrow, if we had the priests.·

Holy Cross vs Providence At Alumni Hall.Tuesday By Jack KineaVy Somerset Higb Scbool Coach

Holy Cross and Providence College, 'two of the East's outstanding collegiate quintets, are scheduled to pair off. next Tuesday' night at Alumni Hall, Providence, in what points up as the game of the season to date in this area. The .Cross bounded back champion, is the pre-tourna­ from last Monday's defeat ment favorite in Class C. 'Saint on His Team' at the hands of Pitt to Tech Tourney time signals the sweep N.Y.U. and Seton Hall over the weekend and bring their cumulatiye record to 10-5. Friar Coach Joe Mullaney, in his third year at the Friar helm, will be lee kin g his first win over Al rna Mater. Joe captained the 1947 Cru­ sader team that went on to the N.C.A.A. championship. Provi­ dence currently boasts an ex(:el­ lent 14-3 record. It could be the Friars' night. Later this month, Feb. 25 to be exact, Providence College meets St. Bonaventure Univers­ ity at Olean, N. Y. The game will initiate competition for the Johnny Kreiger Trophy given in memory of the late Rev. An­ lelm Kreiger, O.F.M. Father Anselm was named All-American while a student at Providence College. After graduation he entered the Fran­ ciscan Novitiate. He served as Director of Athletics at St. Bonaventure University from 1942 until failing health neces­ litated his resignation in 1947. Memorial Trophy Father Anselm died two years ago after a prolonged illness. The trophy in his honor is suit­ ably inscribed with the official .eals of the two institutions as well as the following testi­ monial: "Presented by the 1931 Class, of Providence College for eompetition between St. Bona­ venture University and Provi­ dence, College, in loving mem-' ory. of Father Anselm Kreiger, O.F.M., a classmate of whom we are justifiably proud and whose deeds in life reflected the highest qualities of true sports­ manship and Christian virtue." The interscholastic basketball leason is rapidly drawing to a close. Bristol County concludes scheduled pla'y next Tuesday; Narry winds up the following Friday. League titles in both circuits are still up for grabs, however. Durfee 'and New Bed.,. ford Voke are deadlocked at '9-2 for the County leadership; Dartmouth and Somerset jointly rule the roost in the smaller circuit. Voke vs New Bedford The game of the week pits Voke at New Bedford. The Crimson are only one game off the pace but they need two more victories to qualify for Tech. Vocational, finalists in Class A last year, have already· qualified for post-season play. Durfee needs only a single vic­ 'tory to enter Tech for the 14th consecutive time. The Hilltop­ pers have twice gone all' the way to annex· New England honors. Narry will also have three qualifiers in Class C competi­ tion. Case, defending Narry and Tech titlist, is in for the second consecutive year as is Somerset. The Raiders, elim­ inated in the qualifying rounds the past two years, are peren­ nial entrants in the post-season extravaganza. Dartmouth, 1957 Bay State B crown bearer, is the third school to have quali­ fied. Oliver Ames, Hockamock

The Sox are set at several positions, we're certain, but one of their best bets almost didn't materi­ lize. Just ttow close .third base­ man Frank Malzone came to giving up the game in 1956 was revealed last week in a story by Joe Buchiccio, Albany Evan­ gelist writer. Disillusioned by his failure to stick with the Sox in 1956 and terribly depressed by the un­ -timely death of his 16-month-old daughter, Susanne, Malz~ne was ready to hang up his glove and spikes. Returning home to Oneonta, N. Y., Frank was counselled by Fathers Phillips and Caldara who reminded him that he now "had a saint on his team." The encouragement of the two priestS and his de­ voted wife, Amy, prompted Frank to reconsider his future' in baseball, a decision which he and the Red Sox will never regret.

l.ittle Sharpshooter SAN DIEGO (NC) - Basket­ ball may be a big boys' game, but a "little" sharpshooter from St. Augustine's..High School here apparently hasn't heard about it. In a sport. supposedly reserved for "timberliners," five-foot, eight-inch Tom Shaules ot' St. Augustine's has netted 1,120 points in 41 games for an aver­ age of 27 points per game. He is the first St. Augustine cager to score a total of 1,000 points. His specialty is the'jump shot.

Catholics Fail Press RelatioM ST. LOUIS (NC)-Don't look now, but Protestants are scor­ ing a big public relations beat here over Catholics in the field of press relations. They're doing it with two short words, "Thank you." Checks made here of all ma­ jor communications media ­ newspapers, television stations and radio stations - disclosed that the newspapers and statioOl • almost never get a letter of thanks for running a Catholic story or program. They are getting them-quite a few of them-when Protestant programs appear. The newspapeJ:s, and statioOl aren't complaining, and had not mentioned the matter until it was brought out in interviews with media representatives in the St. LOuis Review, newspaper of the St. Louis archdiocese.

Sandwich School'l'eacher Se,ts T.woRecords in IPrice Rig' ht


A record-breaking series of appearances on~\ one of televi­ Ilion's top giveaway programs came to an end last Monday night for 22-year-old school, teacher Kerin O'Brien of Cor­ pus Christi parish, Sandwich. But before yielding her" cham­ pion's crown on "The Price is Right," Kerin set two records: as the program's biggest all­ ever winner, of '$33,553, and its bi~gest single-session winner, of $12,915 worth of merchandise. Her winnings over the past, "'weeks have included two fur coats, a color television set, a live peacock, a diamond br~ce­ Jet, all the fixings for a . gala party, two cars, and a 40-day: lIlIfari to Africa. Reached at Sandwich, where she was p~ying a flying visit ge­ tween appearances on "The 'Price is Right," Kerin displayed all the bubbling enthusiasm that made her a popular figure on the television screen. "I attended the show with • me friends," she explained, when asked how she became a member of the price-guessing panel, "and I was chosen from the audience to appear on the panel. I've never studied prices

Meetings, which include" dis­ cussion of the New' Testament, some aspect of the liturgy, and problems relating to family life, are outlined in the yearly man­ uals, and are immensely prac­ tical, according to Mr. Dumais. Groups are also encouraged to perform acts of, service on their own initiative, and a major proj­ ect of the Notre Dame units has been the visiting and welcoming of new families in the parish. Members are also taking an ,active part in the organization of a paroch\al Communion Club, and are currently sponsoring a series of Cana Conferences under the direction of Rev. Raymond McCarthy, diocesan director of the Family Life Bureau. The next conference in the series is scheduled for 7:45, March 3, in the Notre Dame scho.ol hall, and it is hoped .that a new CFM unit will be formed as a result of it. Also among future plans is the attendance by members at a closed ·retreat for husbands and wives. I \ Among . the advantages of membership in the CFM pointed out by Mr. and Mrs. Dumais are that it gives couples. a shared interest; it acknowledges the father's importance and respon­ sibility, as head of the family; it creates new and close friend­ ships for both parents and chil­ dren; ana it awakens a realiza­ tion of the ~lose relationship between religion and everyday life. Couples interested in attend­ ing a CFM meeting to see the· 'organization in action are cor­ dially invited to contact Mr. Dumais at 83 Goss Street, Fall River, or to telephone him at OSborne 3-7676.
