,. SEVENTEEN MEN aspmng to the permanent diaconate are questioned by Bishop Cronin during the ceremony at St. Mary's Cathedral admitting them to candidacy. Having completed preparatory studies, they now embark on a course leading to ordination in 1980.

Permanent Deacon Candidates Urged To Grow in Holiness Describing the permanent diaconate as a "magnificent calling," Bishop Daniel A. Cronin last Sunday admitted to candidacy the first class of men to aspire for the diaconate in the' Fall River diocese. At a historic ceremony in St. Mary's Cathedral, 17 men were received for this diocese. "You are beginning a new phase in your lives as Christians," Bishop Cronin told the candidates. "This is a simple ceremony but a significant occasion for the church, the diocese and yourselves." The Bishop sketched the history of the diaconate through the centuries, noting that in early times deacons were expected to be the "eyes, ears, heart and mouth of the bishop," acting as his extension in serving the faithful. Today, said the bishop, the deacons will extend the ministry of parish priests. He noted that their apostolate would be threefold, embracing liturgy when they serve at the altar; preaching and teaching; and "serving their brothers and sisters in Christ." He exhorted the candidates to grow in holiness, noting that he hoped that other vocations would

develop among the 69 children included in their families. In a special appeal to wives, he urged them to "call upon the Holy Spirit for the strength, understanding, patience and kindness you will need." At the reception ceremony, Bishop Cronin was assisted by

Msgr. John J. Regan, Cathedral rector, and by Father John F. Moore, director of the permanent diaconate program. Masters of ceremonies for the Mass were Msgr. John J. Oliveira, Msgr. Thomas J. Harrington and Father Barry W. Wall. Turn to Page Six

Cursillo Community The "Oasis" is the publication of the New Bedford North End Regional Ultreya. The members have kindly sent it to us and we are happy to share with our readers the events that they have planned, as well as those Mother Nature has canceled. By the way, all Ultreyas in the diocese are welcome to send us their newsletters. Every attempt will be made to bring to our readers the work of Cursillo in our area; however, we remind all that we can only print that which is sent. The February UItreya of the New Bedford group has been canceled and news of the March meeting will be sent to all members. A day of recollection has been tentatively set for Sunday, March 5. Among coming events the Oasis calls to readers' attention: On March 16-19, Cursillo No. 84 will be held for women at La Salette. A Holy Hour will be held at St. John the Baptist Church in New Bedford on Friday March 17th. (Every Friday of a Cursillo weekend this Ultreya has a holy hour for Cursillo candidates.) Father Alvin Illig, director of evangelization efforts f.or the National Conference of Catholic Bishops, will direct a workshop on the, subject from 1 to 9 p.m. Sunday, March 12 at St. Margaret's parish, Buzzards Bay. An announcement of the event from Cursillo headquarters at the Center for Christian Living in Attleboro notes that the Rectors' Board has found Father Illig to be an effective witness to the importance of evangelization in today's Church and urges Cursillistas to participate in the workshop. Further information is available from Pat Lewis at the Center. The Anchor also announces a forthcoming series which will attempt to explain the Cursillo movement to our general readership. There are many who still feel that this is somewhat of a mysterious movement in the Church. In some cases there even has been confusion an'd consernation. It is hoped that a clear explanation of the program will aid many who feel doubtful to see that they have nothing to fear. Perhaps they will become interested enough to make further inquiries! The series, in this column, will be offered by Anchor editor Father Moore.

Second Occupation PARIS (NC) - A French traditionalist Catholic priest has announced plans to lead a traditionalist occupation of a second Catholic church in Paris this spring. The priest, Father Louis ~oache, is director of the traditionalist seminary of Flavigny-sur-Ozerain and leader of the group Combat de la Foi (Fight for the Faith).

Bishop Anticipates Successful Appeal Bishop Daniel A. Cron'.n. meeting with priest directors of the diocesan Catholic Charities Appeal, was optimistic that the 1978 Appeal total w:.ll surpass that of last year, which reached over $1 million for the second time in history. At the meeting Bishop Cronin reviewed last year's Appeal and stressed allocation of funds to the various apostolat.es of the diocese, including health care, care for the elderly, pastoral activities, development of religious personnel, social service and child care and education. Msgr. Anthony M. Gomes, diocesan Appeal director, explained campaign procedures. He said Bishop Cronin will address deanery meetings of priests and that cooperation by all involved will be needed to ensure success for the annual project. The Appeal's kick-off meeting is scheduled for 8 p.m. Wednesday, April 19, at Bishop Connolly High School auditorium, Fall River. Bishop Cronin will speak and Father Charles Soto, OFM, director of the New Bedford Spanish Apostolate, will explain the work of this important ministry, which is also going forward in the Taunton and Attleboro areas.

Pope Deplores Irish Bombing BELFAST, Northern Ireland - Pope Paul has deplored the bombing of the Le Mon House restaurant in Comber, County Down, Northern Ireland, as an "inhuman deed." TW,elve people died and 30 were injured by the bomb blast last week, which was attributed by police to the Provisional wing of the Irish Republican Army. About 400 persons were in the restaurant, in the Protestant Castlareagh district just south of Belfast, when the bomb exploded. Witnesses said the restaurant was turned into an inferno within seconds, and then a second bomb exploded in the parking lot. Police described it as one of the worst atrocities in the history of the eight-year civil war. The Pope's message, sent by Cardinal Jean Villot, papal secretary of state, to Bishop William Philibin of Down and Connor, said: "The latest in the tragic series of destructive acts that have brought affliction on the people of your diocese and of neighboring dioceses has caused renewed sorrow a.nd grief to the Holy Father. "Deploring the inhuman deed, he has directed me to give assurance of his prayers for the victims and their relatives while he asks God to move hearts so that peac.e and harmony may be established in your troubled land."

ST. PAUL, Minn. (NC) "The homosexual problem . is both real and complex , (and) affords no easy solution," said Archbishop John Roach of St. Paul-Minneapolis in a formal statement on the issue. In an introduction to his statement, the archbishop emphasized that he was not ad(lressing any single current issue nor urging a specific action. Instead, he called the statement "a reflection on the considerations that have been a part of the Catholic tradition in responding to the question of homosexuality. " Although the Catholic community "recognizes and affirms the human dignity and worth of homosexuals as persons," it cannot condone the homosexual life style, said Archbishop Roach, vice president of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops and the U.S. Catholic Conference. "Both religious and civic leaders must seek ways to assure homosexuals every human and civil right which is their due as persons, without, however, neglecting the rights of the larger community," he said. But because homosexual behavior "lacks both the complementarity which exists between masculine and feminine personalities and the possibility of the deepening that can come through sharing the joys and burdens of parenthood and family life" the Catholic Church considers it wrong, the archbishop said. Warning that the churches and society should "carefully avoid passing judgment on the inner moral state of any individual," Archbishop Roach said that "many good men and women . . . did not choose to be homosexual, and are trying to lead moral, constructive lives in their circumstances." Since such individual~ cannot look to the support normally found in a marriage, "they deserve a special degree of pastoral consideration from their churches, as well as human understanding and compassion from society," he said.

Free Port Asked For Boat People WASHINGTON (NC) "Thousands of lives could be saved" by offering the "boat people" - Indochina refugees escaping in small boats - a free port where they. can receive temporary asylum, according to a U.S. Catholic Conference official recently returned from a visit to Southeast Asia. The official: John McCarthy, director of the USCC's Office of Migration and Refugee Services, said 10,000 or more refugees may have died trying to escape in recent months. He urged that the United States establish an "openended admission procedure" to allow refugees to come into this country. Under current law, the attorney general must grant a special parole authority for each group of refugees. McCarthy explained that a free port is generally a facility where goods are handled free of customs duty and regulations. "Can we do less for human beings than is done for machinery, tools and automobiles?" he asked. He said large ships have often passed small boats full of refugees, despite longstanding international law and maritime tradition requiring that they help boats in trouble. "Past experience has taught the masters of these vessels," that picking up refugees leads to "untold complica~ions," McCarthy said. "Many countries, when learn~ ing that refugees are aboard a vessel, will not permit any of the crew to disembt'frk," he said. "No landing rights are given to refugees and the ship' must maintain them on board with the hope of reaching some port that will grant temporary asylum. Describing his experiences in refugee camps, McCarthy said "Everywhere the picture etched in my mind is that of children. "In each refugee camp or facility I visited, there were these little tots, sometimes hundreds of them, crying or playing with self-made toys, with wonderment of why they had moved, sometimes secretly and most speedily, from their normal environment. "In talking to their parents, there was repeated the preamble to all past refugee movements: 'I could possibly exist, but I wanted to provide a new and hopeful life for my children.' "

Franciscan Tertiaries By Barbara Kolb and Paula Richardson " . . . If you seek perfection, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor . . . afterwards, come back and follow Me" . . . such is the essence of a lay Franciscan's life. What best describes the lay Franciscan's way of life are the words that St. Francis adopted from the Gospel: "The life I live now is not. my own; it is Christ who lives in me." More than just talking about Christ - being His living image is crucial to the Franciscan Tertiary. Our way of life has no meaning unless we show the world that our lives have changed because we have experienced Christ intimately as our Lord and Savior. As Tertiaries or Third Order members, change occurs in our lives when we realize who we are because of who Christ is. To allow Him to become the center of our beings is to change our lifestyles and our way of thinking, because it is Christ who has called us to be His messengers to the world. As lay Franciscans, we are a fraternity of men and women who live in everyday surroundings, and whose vocation is to show Christ to those with whom we live. More than the clergy or the religious, it is the layperson who has the greatest opportunity for personal contact with others. His or her perseverance in the spirit of willing self-denial, unselfish love, and joyous sacrifice

Why Couldn't It Happen in August? TULSA, Okla. (NC) - Want a Dreamsicle, a Fudge Bomb or just some plain vanilla ice cream? Visit the unlikeliest ice cream man in town, Father James McGlinchey, director of Catholic Social Services for the Tulsa diocese. "Everyone who comes in here we give them ice cream," say~ Father McGlinchey, whose agency recently received 15,000 gallons of ice cream from a dairy products company closing its Tulsa operation. Russ Lamb, the company's manager, valued the mountain

of ice cream at $28,331.37. It includes 1,675 gallons of vanilla ice cream, 5,000 Dreamsicles, 2,300 Fudge Bombs and various other frozen confections, all of which went into cold storage at a cost to the agency of $900 and will eventually be distributed to poor people, and social service institutions.

allows God's power to inspire him to reach out to others in many small ways. The Franciscan layperson en路 thusiastically commits himself to a life time of living Christ in the world through profession. Profession is a wholehearted involvement in the life of Christ. Through profession, we become a living sign of encouragement and hope for a searching world to see. Such is the essence and challenge of being a lay Franciscan - to willingly change and become Christ's living image in the world.

VATICAN CITY (NC) Vatican Radio marked the 30th anniversary of the death of In路 dian leader Mahatma Ghandi last month, by appealing foJ' recognition that nonviolence hi "the only possible way" to reach peace in the world.

Vatican radio said Ghandi's concept of nonviolence stressed that: - "Nonviolent action be based on truth. The one who practices nonviolence must be aware of the justice of his cause."

Nonviolence, or "shimsa" as practiced by Ghandi, Vatican Radio said, "has a decisive importance in a world like ours, in which violent acts of individuals and groups, especially in the big cities, are becoming a growing threat not only to the maintenance of legal order but to ~ the very existence of civil society."

- "In his nonviolent struggle against injustice, his purpose must be not that of prevailing over his unjust adversary, but rather bringing the adversary to awareness and recognition of his error. Nonviolent action must therefore be inspired by love and not hatred for the adversary."

Recalling that Ghandi was assassinated by a member of a violent Indian minority while fasting to bring peace among various battling Indian religious groups, Vatican Radio said: "It could seem that his sacrifice was in vain. But history amply testifies that through such personal sacrifices the slow progress of mankind toward the highest ideals of fully integrated community receives new inspiration and impulse."

Asking whether men today would have the courage to follow the way of nonviolence to reach peace, Vatican Radio concluded:

Vatican Radio noted that, during his struggle against the British colonial regime, Ghandi had proposed Christ as an example of a "true nonviolent 'satyagrahi,' that is one who knew. how to sacrifice his life so that truth might prevail."

"It is the only possible way. There are no others."

Canon Law Criticized ROME (NC) - A report based on responses from hundreds of religious orders to the proposed revision of canon law for Religious has heavily criticized the draft. The report, drafted for the International Union of Superiors General by an international team of theologians, said that the world's Religious have especially objected to the draft's emphasis on the role of bishops in the lives of Religious and their orders.

themoorin~ The Papacy and the Palestinian Peoples The smirking attitude of Moshe Dyan as he belittled the aid of the American efforts in behalf of Israel on national television should serve to point out to the people of this country that they have been sold a bill of goods by a powerful and influential lobby. The diplomatic stepdancing that continues to dominate the already prejudiced national news media also continues to ignore the plight of millions of people who have suffered at the hands of a determined aggressor. ' During the present phase of the illegal colonization of Arab lands by Israel, it is well that this paper once more focuses attention on the Pontifical Mission for Palestine and its work for the millions of displaced Arab peoples. In the aftermath of the Arab-Israeli confrontation in 1948, one million Palestinians were driven from their :homes and their land was annexed by the "new" nation of Israel. The Holy See just did not stand by and offer pious platitudes of consolation for these displaced peoples but acted to help them even though the vast majority were not Catholic. Pope Pius XII founded the Pontifical Mission for Palestine to aid the innocent victims of aggression. Since its founding this agency has worked c~>ntinu颅 ously and against great odds to serve the invo.untary nomads of the desert. Distributing food and clothing in emergency situations, its main effort is to help refugees to help themselves through education and medical aid. In the past 25 years the Holy Father's Miss:.on has dispens,ed well over $100 million in money, goods and services to meet the needs of the Palestinian refugees. To be sure, there are extremists on both sides, Palestinians and Zionists who by their radical and vengeful pursuits have clouded and distorted the real plight of the Arab refugees. The terrorists are few, the needy are many. It. is imperative that through the smoke and carnage of war we recognize the basic issue that is of such great concern to the Holy See. The Pontifical Mission for Palestine is attempting to tread the destructive minefields that are planted each day in the Middle East that it may continue to reach out and help the displaced, dispersed and diffused. In doing its work it seeks neither land, buildings nor profit. Through close cooperation with other international agencies, especially the United Nati(J)ns, the Pontifical Mission for Palestine is>the mainstay of survival and existence for the poverty-stricken refugees who are the real victims of political injustice and inequity. As this most important church-sponsored organization continues its efforts to help the millions of refugees in occupied Palestine, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan and the Gaza Strip, we must not be dissuaded by smiling diplomats or sneeling generals from offering our full support to a cause for which Our Holy Father Pope Paul asks our "generous witness of charity." .

'Why should we and our land perish before your very eyes?' Gen. 47: 19

A Voice From Jerusalem By John B. Sheerin, C.S.P.

Recently I returned from Jerusalem where I had attended the Second Je::usalem Conference for Christians and Israelis. Noted Jewish, Christian and Arab speakers addressed the meetings. One evening, five of us visited the home of Yehoshafat Harkabi, former Chief of Intelligence of the Israeli Army. He welcomed us and while he spoke frankly about the problems involved in achieving a lasting peace in the Middle East, he was quite optimistic about the future. He said that he supports the creation of a Palestinian state on the West Bank of the Jordan, a project favored by President Cartar but opposed by Premier Begin. The UN Partition Plan for 'Palestine in 1947 contemplated the formation of a Jewish state and an Arab state in Palestine to settle the Arab-Jewish quarrels. The Jewish state, Israel, came into being in 1948 but no Arab state lent its approval. The Arabs wanted all of Palestine, not a part, and so they invaded the new Jewish state immediately. The Isralis repulsed a series of Arab invasions over the years, setting up an army of occupation on the West Bank until a peace treaty would be signed.

The Arabs refused to sign such a treaty but pressure is being brought to bear upon Israel to surrender the West Bank. Harkabi believes that the Palestinians should be given a free hand in determining what kind of state they should create on the West Bank but Premier Begin disagrees. His Likud Party program opposes self-determination for the Palestinians: He has said that such a state would be "a mortal danger to Israel." Harkabi discussed with us some of the problems connected with a Palestinian state. He intimated that some form of Jordariian control would be feasible as an interim arrangement but he pulled no punches in demanding an Arab state on the West Bank. It would be tempting fate, however, for the Israelis to withdraw from the West Bank without. receiving some assurances that -they would not have to defend themselves against a repitition of Arab attacks and terrorism. No Israeli government is going to pull back to borders where the people of Israel would be sitting ducks for Arab artillery. Harkabi did not see the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) as an insuperable obstacle to peace. True, the PLO Charter phrases its goal as the destruction of the Jewish state,

but the moderate Palestinian leaders now holding political office under Israeli occupation wiil not want to hand over their jobs to the -FLO. Moreover, the PLO has lost much of its clout due to its insane policy of terrorism in Lebanon, and at the 31st session of the UN General Assembly, various 'spOkesmen discussed the Palestine question but not one mentioned the PLO by name. It is significant that Sadat, in recommending self-dett;!rmination for the Palestinians omitted any reference to the PLO. Harkabi, however, called attention to the sleeping giant, Soviet Russia. Soviet foreign policy has been angling for a long time to get a toe-hold in the Middle East. Harkabi alluded to the old maxim about "fishing in muddled waters." This has been an old Russian practice. The Soviets stir up trouble in order to provoke an incident that they might exploit to use as a pretext for intervention in the Middle East troubles. The Soviets are not at all happy that the United States has presently a commanding position in Middle East affairs.

Another Religion? Dear Editor: Your recent editorial on Charismatics was very interesting, as were the letters to the editor that followed. So I thought that I would give my views. Some years ago I joined a prayer group, and at the beginning it wasn't too bad, but later with non-Catholics entering, so many different theologies '#lre coming forth that I came to feel that as a matter of faith I could no longer attend the meetings of the group, for fear that my Roman Catholicism was in jeopardy. As I found that we had to bend more to pentecostalism than Roman Catholicism ... The charismatic movement was started by a few lay people who studied the pentecostal religion and instituted this into a movement that has attracted many Catholics. Initiation is like joining another religion. As though the one you have is lacking. This from the beginning of my experience with it, saddened and confused me. Some fellow Catholics seemed to think that the Holy Spirit wasn't present to them before. I always felt He was with us always, and especially through the Sacrament of Confirmation. Many Catholics who are charismatics seemed not to have studied their own Catholic religion very much. I believe that Catholic prayer groups should retain their Catholicity and not bend toward Protestantism in trying to satisfy their non-catholic members.

Little Things Dear Editor: At some time or other you no doubt have heard the expressions: it's the little things that count, or it isn't the size of the gift, but the thought; as a matter of fact we may add, good things come in small packages, or a recipient may hear, it isn't much, but it's from the heart ....

Truly, it's the little things that count. Categorically speak· ing, it is the same with God, one may recite chapter upon chapter, or page after page of prayers, but just a short phrase, a few words, or even just calling His name "Jesus" with fervor in our hearts could be' just as pleasing to Him. Nothing could appease the Lord more than sharing a little of our love with Him, in quiet contemplation I often review the wonders and beauty God's hands have designed for us in this world. How can one not believe that it is the Lord who has so carefully molded our lives, given us love and understanding. A small deed of charity in the name of Jesus is worth a handful of gold in .appreciation and gratitude; so little on our part can mean so much to the recipient. A chat with the lonely, a telephone call to a shut-in, or a word of encouragement to one burdened with sorrow; a cheerful word will bring a bit of joy to a heavy heart . . . So let us all spread a little cheer along the way, each kind word to God is a fervent prayer, all our good deeds will be recognized by God; He will generously reward us with His rich blessings.

Should Be Proud Of Jewish Jesus PHILDELPHIA (NC) Jews "ought to be much prouder of Jesus" than of Albert Einstein, Heinrich Heine or Sigmund Freud, acoeding to an Orthodox Jewish scholar of religion who said Jesus is "closer to me than to many a Christian theologian." In an article in the Journal of Ecumenical Studies, published at Temple University in Philadelphia, Pinchas Lapida welcomed new trends in the Christian theology of Jesus, and said a return to the human Jesus means a return to the Jewish Jesus. That theology allows Jews to see Jesus "as a fellow human being, as a fellow Jew, as an Israeli" and even "as a Zionist and a fellow struggler,"· said Lapida, a former Israeli diplomat and now professor at the Orthodox Jewish Bar Han University in Israel. "Jesus was as faithful to the law as I would hope to be," Lapide added. "I even suspect that Jesus was more faithful to the law than I am - and I am an Orthodox Jew." Although the Jew and the Christian may be separated by the theology of the 48 hours beginning with the death of Jesus, there are 33 years of His life to be theologized on together, he said.

Lenten Program For Cape Cod

An experience of prayer, teaching scripture, and sharing will be held on Wednesday evenings, March I, 8, and 15 from 7:30 to 9 p.m. at Holy Trinity Parish Hall, Rt. 28, West Harwich. The program will be directed by Rev. Maurice Proulx, M.S., Miss Sharon Malloy and Sr. Margaret Goldsbury, C.N.D. from the Diocesan Spiritual Life Center, Pawtucket, RI. Offered for adults and high school students, the series is sponsored by the Lower Cape Directors and Religious Education Coordinators and the Hyannis Knights of Columbus.

Candidates Continued from Page One Music for the occasion, directed by Glen Guittari, cathedral organmaster, and Father Horace Travassos, included selec~ons from Brahms and Mozart. A reception for candidates, their families and their friends followed in the Cathedral hall. In other news of the diaconate program, Father Moore will next week attend meetings of the Bishops' Office for the Permanent Diaconate and the National Conference of Permanent Diaconate Directors, both to be held in San Diego. At the second meeting, he will participate in panel discussions on "Spiritual Formation of Deacon Candidates" and "Incardination and Excardination of Ordained Deacons."

Alhambra Meeting Region One Council of Caravans of the International Order of Alhambra will meet at 8:30 p.m. Friday, March 3, at K of C Hall, 25 Webster St., Everett. Regional Director John Raguccii will preside.

Continued from Page One Coast Guard installations in various locations and the Army Engineers' unit charged with supervision of the Cape Cod Canal. Officials at the office of the Military Ordinariate in New York explained that Bishop Cronin will also exercise his duties at such large facilities as the Naval complex in the Newport, R.I. area, the submarine base in Groton, Conn., Pease Air Force Base in New Hampshire, Fort Devens in Massachusetts and Naval Air Bases at Brunswick and other locations in Maine. Scattered throughout the New . England area are also sev-" eral radar stations like that in Truro. Bishop Cronin will be responsible for overseeing pastoral care provided for Catholic servicemen and women and their families at these and similar smaller sites. The duties of the Chaplain Delegate are not confiried to active duty 'installations. Within the ambit of Bishop Cronin's new duties fall all the Veterans' Administration hospitals in New England. There is at least one VA hospital in every New England state, with several in Massachusetts. Bishop Cronin will be visiting each VA Hospital to meet with 'Chaplains, staff and patients. A spokesman at the Military Ordinariate in New York explained that Bishop Cronin's jurisdiction as a Vicar General for the Military Vicariate, while ordinarily exercised in the New England area, is, nonetheless, not restricted and thus has virtual world-wide scope. There are over two million Catholics served by the Military Vicariate, residing in over 40 countries throughout the world. In addition to military personnel, any American Catholic living overseas and working in some capacity for the government is a subject of the Military Vicariate. This would encompass, for example, Catholics and their family members employed by the State Department or by American Economic Missions.

Tosti, pastor of St. Francis of Assisi parish, New Bedford; Father Timothy J.

Students Get Message: Prison Life Grim

\

Then, after a look at individual cells, they were seated in the prison auditorium on plain benches. Before them were a half-dozen prisoners. "We ain't no cops. We ain't no social workers. We're prisoners. We're gonna tell you what prison life is like," said the first speaker. "See that guy over there?" he asked, pointing to another inmate. He's here for life. I've been here seven years and I'm doing 30. You think we're playin' games with you, you all wrong." Then the others spoke, 15 or 20 minutes apiece. It was a rough session. They described the grimness of life behind bars, its utter desolation. They used ugly street terms in talking about homosexuality in prison, of homosexual rape. "We're all dead, you know,"

Fiorella heard about the program and decided his students should see it. "They're good kids," he said. "But they are in an inner-city situation, and I thought this would be good for them."

The teenagers quickly learned this would be no ordinary class trip. They filed into a screening room, emptied their pockets, passed through an airport-type metal detector and had their wrists stamped with the date.

By Gerald M. Costello RAHWAY, N.J. (NC) - "You ain't gonna hear one good thing about this place," the inmate at Rahway State Prison told a group of young visitors. "Nothin' cool about it. We're animals, period. You think anybody cares about us here? They don't care about nothin' except that body being in the cell at night." The teenagers hearing that grim message on a recent day were students at School 12 in Paterson, N.J., brought there by their teacher, Charles Fiorella, a member of St. Gerard parish 1n Paterson. The group was one of dozens that go through the prison each month to learn the truth: that there is nothing remotely glamorous about prison life, that it is ugly, vicious, dirty and cold. Twice a day, five days a week, groups of teenagers come to Rahway State Prison for two hours of straight talk from those who know prison life best - the lifers. Many have had early brushes with the law and seem headed for trouble; others live in the inner cities where crime can easily attract the young and disillusioned. But through a project organized by the 48-member Lifers' Group at Rahway, made up of long-term prisoners there, thousands of young people have heard the prisoners' message. Stop messing around, the message goes. It leads to trouble, and trouble, finally, leads right here.

Each student took home a letter to his parents, warning that the language and the treatment would be rough. Some refused permission for the trip, but most thought it a good idea.

State Prison, where they met inmates. (NC Photo) one inmate told the rapt audience. "Only thing is, ain't none of us layin' down." The School 12 group wa!l particularly affected by an inmate from Paterson named Willie Allen, serving 19 to 27 years. "Yeah, I know all those streets. . . . I know where you hang out," Allen told them. "I recognize some of you, 'cause I know your hrothers and sisters," he said. "I did the same dumb things you're doing. I know a lot of your mothers and fathers don't have a lot of money, but they make sure they got enough to take care of you -and you don't listen to 'em, right? You better, 'cause they want to help you. Once you get in here, ain't nobody gonna help you." The prison program started in 1976, when a former inmate's young son began getting into trouble. If he knew what I knew, his father reasoned, he'd stay away from juvenile problems and prison at all costs. The first program opened to mixed reviews. "We tried the big brother approach, you

know," said Henry Ragland, serving a 20- to 30-year sentence. "That didn't seem to work; it was too nice. That's when we decided to really tell it like it is. It's rough, sure, but this is a rough place. People have to know that." Some 4,400 juveniles have been through the program since it began and less than 10 percent of them have got into trouble again - a remarkable figure, correction officials feel, in view of their background and environment. ·Inmates receive no special privileges for taking part in the program - they even lose the dollar-a-day pay they receive for prison chores when they partkipate in the presentation - and there are no guarantees of a favorable parole hearing. So what's in it for the lifers? "Looking at those kids, it's like a reflection of myself when I was younger," said Ragland. "It's like giving a gift, you know? That's how I feel; this is a gift to these kids. You just have to hope they're smart enough to appreciate it."

'I Can't Please My Husband' By Dr. Jim and Mary Kenny Dear Dr. Kenny: My husband is in one of his moods again. He is dissatisfied with my cooking and housekeeping, fin,ds fault with the way I mother our children, and complains about my topics of conversation and my involvement in La Lech~! League. Any attempts at reasoning or explaining only makes matters worse• • used to really hustle to try to correct things which seemed to bother him, but as soon as I'd get one taken care of, two more would spring· up in its place. So taCkling it from that angle seems hopeless. Sometimes I think he':s married to the wrong perS011 - I bear practically no resemblance to the person he expects me to be, and some days I l:an't do anything to please him. Other times he's himself and I'm myself and we get along fine until zap! We're off again. And usually I don't even know what triggered it. Would yOUl think I was paranoid if I said that sometimes I think he says those things just to hurt me? Sure, • get crabby and strike out sometimes too. Maybe he just needs some place to blow off steam and • hap-" pen to be handy. But when tantrums and sulking and complaining go on for days and weeks, • get desperate. He won't go with me for counseling. He says the trouble with this marriage is all my fault and as soon as • straighten out, everything will be O.K. • know I can't make him change. But maybe you could give me sOJpe help in coping with the sitlLlation. At present, I just draw into myself and try to stay out of the way during these "times. Unfortunately, it is hard for me to reverse and open up and reach out again when the storm is over. Also, • assume • must be contributing something to reinforcing the pattern. Can you tell me what it is and what • can do differently? He is totally different when not on one of these binges, and • really do love him. A. Your letter surely gives a vivid picture of a difficult situation. You are correct in asking what it is that you can do. There is no future in wondering what your husband can do, then blaming him for not doing it. Assigning fault and blame may help one feel a bit better, but it is gen1erally ineffective in solving the problem.

You ask what you can do differently. First, I think you need to do more of the same. You need female friends and woman's support groups like La Lecbe League. Don't let your husband discourage you. You need companionship and support. There is a lot of love in La Leche League, not just for babies but for mothers too. Tap into this source. It would also be good to join a group of women who get together to discuss common handicaps in growing up female in 20th-century Am. erica. This kind of group may be a woman's support or enrichment group, Mama's morning out, or an exercise or reli-. gious study group. Somehow, women begin to share their problems and give each other a listening ear and encouragement. If your community doesn't have such a group for women, start one. In regard to your husband, there is a possibility that some physical problem is contributing to his moods. You might try to encourage him to have a physical examination. Next, keep giving "I-messages." Tell what it feels like inside you when he indulges in his fault-finding. When you reveal youtself like this, you will be vulnerable. He may use it to hurt you more. However, it is the only way to let him know what his moods and attitudes do to you. There is always some hope with this approach, more than if you draw into yourself. Love involves the gift of self: Not judgments like, "Why are you SUlking?" or "Y9U have no right to criticize my friends." Rather, love encourages personal revelations like, "That hurt" and "I really 'do love you." You ask how you might be contributing to his criticizing" behavior. I do not know enough specifics to help you pinpoint this. However, in general I can say that any time you can return positive behavior a touch, a caress, even saying "Ouch" when he hurts you in response to his negative behavior, then you are discouraging negative behavior. When you live with constant put-downs, it is hard to keep up your self-esteem. Make a personal list of all the things you do well. Don't let false humility keep you from giving yourself credit. Keep positive

remarks going toward your children too. They need reward and encouragement as much as food and clothing. Finally, you say that you still love your husband. Ask yourself why. Make a list of all the reasons, all the quirks and behaviors you still find attractive in him. Pay attention to these. Touch him and talk to him when the good things are happening. Comment on them. Ignore the moods and the criticism and the complaints. This is sound behavioral therapy. It is also deep love. Reader questions on family living and child care are invited.

South Africa Finds A Friend CONCORD, N.H. (NC) - Answering 14 clergymen who publicly challenged his statements on South Africa, New Hampshire Gov. Meldrim Thomson Jr. said the South African government is trying to improve the life of blacks in the nation. "The government is working to bring roads, schools and hospitals to the black people," Thomson told a news conference three days after he returned from a la-day tour of South Africa. "This does not mean that I

endorse apartheid," he added. But, "we should not be pointing the finger of scorn." Thomson came under fire earlier in the week when' 14 New Hampshire religious leaders, including two Catholic bishops, challenged his statements in a joint letter to their congregations. The leaders said that contrary to the governor's claim that blacks enjoy freedom in South Africa, "injustices and denials of freedom ... continue unabated."

Thomson, whose trip was paid for by the pro-government South African Freedom Foundation, mentioned the clergymen's letter in a prepared statement. Saying his critics should "inform themselves about the facts," he added: "I was pleased to see the statement of 14 clergymen to tjleir communicants. While they disagree with some of my comments, which they have a perfect right to do, they admit that their informaion is based on hearsay rather than personal experience."

Blue Collar (Universal): Three Detroit auto workers, feeling worn down by their work and trapped by their environment, rob the safe of their corrupt union local only to discover, not money, but an incriminating account book. Their attempt at blackmail, however, ends disastrously. A dull film that comes to an arbitrary and undramatic ~onclusion. "Blue Collar" is slick and cynical, lacks any moral context and lays on the sex with with a heavy hand. Condemned. "Operation Thunderbolt" (Cinema Shares) is the -Israeli film of the heroic rescue of the hijack victims at Entebbe by Israeli commandos, an event that electrified the world and has already been the subject of two television films. This version is a methodical and low-keyed recreation of that rescue. Though it often skimps on characterization, it does capture enough of the excitement of its subject to make lit an entertain:'ng and

moving viewing experience. Ap· proved for adults and adolescents. "Sasquatch" (North American) is a pesudo-documentary abou t an expedition into the wilds of British Columbia in search of a creature legendary ape-like called Sasquatch by the Indians. The acting is atrocious, and the general tone is one of tedium which stock footage of wildlife and scenery does little to aile· viate. Approved for all. In writer-director Michael Crichton's film adaption of Rob· in Cook's best-selling novel, "Coma," Genevieve Bujold plays a fiercely indepenuent young surgeon, a resident at a Boston hospital, whose best friend goes into a fatal coma during the course of a routine operation. It turns out that the hospital has a disproportion. ately large number of such case,; and Miss Bujold sets herself to find out why. "Coma" is a well constructecl and harmless entertainment for adults but in spite of its PC; rating, parents should be ad· vised that rather graphic operating room sequences, some incidental background nudity ancl the casual introduction of an extramaritial affair are factors that make it questionable viewing for all but mature viewers. Morally unobjectionable for adults. "The Boys. in Company C" (Columbia) is a muddled movi ~ about a company of young Marines in boot training and subsequent combat in Vietnam. Drugs, atrocities, failures b military leadership, simple greed and downright cynicism on the part of everyone involved in the struggle are the order of the day. The film's foul language, bereft of any significant context, and its moral ambiguity are offer.sive. Morally objectionable i [1 part for all. "A Night Full of Rain" (Wal··

ners) attempts to use the marriage of a mismatched pair -- . an Italian Communist journali~,t (Giancario Giannini) and an Am-

15

erican feminist (Candice Bergen) - as a metaphor to express the ills of society, but the result is a static and boring film. Some nudity, sexual byplay and irreverent references in the film's treatment make it morally offensive. Morally objectionable in part for all. "The One and Only" (Para. mount) is a nostalgic '50s comedy directed by Carl Reiner. Henry Winkler plays a supreme egotists who woos and wins a shy proper girl on an Ohio campus, and then they go to New York, where he is forced to turn to wrestling to support her, succeeding in fabulous fashion. The film makes for mildly entertaining adult fare, some coarse sexual and scatological references ruling it out for a more general audience. Morally unobjectionable for adults. On Television "Lorna Doone," PBS, Feb. 23, 8-8:30 p.m. This first of a 10episode series begins a tale of robust adventure and winning romance in the finest Sir Walter Scott tradition. The material is brought off in the high style one expects from such British productions, always placing the action's violence in the context of the morally good. It is family entertainment that does not insult adult intelligence.

Bishops Give Support To Humphrey-Hawkin Bill By Jim Castelli WASHINGTON {NC) Spokesmen for the U.S. Catholic Conference have told Congress that a revised version of the Humphrey-Hawkins full em· ployment bill backed by the Carter Administration is not toothless but "contains measures which are absolutely essential to any serious atempt to achieve full employment."

- It provides anti-inflation, labor standard and nondiscrimination provisions.

Auxilil:lry Bishop Eugene Marino of Washington, D.C., testified . for the usec before the House subcommittee on employment opportunities chaire'd by Rep. Augustus Hawkins (DCalif.), the bill's leading House sponsor. Bishop Marino was accompanied by Francis Butler,USCC associate secretary for domestic social develdpment.

"We are pleased to see that enactment of this legislation is a priority of President Carter's Administration," Bishop Marino said. "In our judgment, the full employment bill pending before Congress embodies principles which reflect an economic order subservient to human need."

Bishop Marino also said the USCC "can think of no more fitting tribute to Sen. Hubert Humphrey, a selfless, courageous and dutiful public servant, than the passage of this bill. Humphrey died of cancer Jan. 13. The USCC has supported versions of the Humphrey-Hawkins bill for more than two years. Congressional leaders believe the bill has an excellent chance of passage in the next session of Congress, partly because of the Administration's support and partly because of sentiment that the bill should be a memorial for Humphrey. Bishop Marino praised five main features of the HumphreyHawkins bHl: - It affirms "the right of all Americans who are able, willing and seeking work to full opportunity for useful, paid employment at fair rates of compensation." - It sets specific goals and timetables for achieving full employment. The bill calls for reducing adult unemployment (for those 20 and over) to three

percent and overall unemployment to four percent within five years of passage. - It calls for reducing and then removing the gaps in the unemployment rate among different sectors in the labor force, for example, teenagers, women and members of minority groups.

"Far too often in the past," he said, "we have employed economic strategies which appeared to utilize the victims of unemployment as stabilizing factors in our national economy," he said. "The formulation and implementation of economic policies and- legislation cannot be left solely to market forces. What is at stake is not merely economic theories or political programs, but human lives." "We have recited before this committee in the past," he said, "a long litany of social ills which pastors frequently meet in their ministry among the unemployed, aberrations which stem from the persistently high levels of unemployment of the past several years - child and spouse abuse, suicide, drug addiction, alcoholism, racial antagonism and crim~"
