nounced the amount at a news conference here today. The funds will be used for self-help programs-not necessarily under Catholic Church sporisorship"':"'aimed af attacking the root· causes of poverty such as poor' housing, inadequate education and job training and the lack of legal services and health care. ' . Bishop Dempsey said the first grants to groups applying for the funds would be made by July 1. Deadline for funding applications is April 30. Guidelines and criteria covering distribution of the funds

specify that the poor must have a "dominant voice in planning, directing and implementing" the program. About 200 groups have thus far submitted proposals amounting to a- combined total of $7 million. A Human Developm'ent spokesman, . who said preliminary reviews of some proposals had already begun, said the campaign hopes to distribute "as much as possible" of the $8.4 million this year.

Ms:gr. Hugh A. Gallagher Retires! From St. James Most Rev. Daniel A Cronin, S.T.D., Bishop of Fall River, has accepted the request of Rev. Msgr. Hugh A Gallagher, P.A, pastor of St. James' Church, New Bedford, that he be allowed to resign the pastorate that he has exercised there since May 1, 1947. Monsignor Gallagher was 81 years of age on February. 17, and w)lile he had submitted his resignation two. years ago, he asked again that it be accepted. The distinguished prelate has given 39 years of service to .St. James in the South end of New Bedford and his presence and influence there is almost legendary. Monsignor Gallagher was born Feb. 17, 1890, the son of the late William H. and Bridget (Goodwin) Gallagher. A native of Taunton he attended local schools and graduated from Holy Cross College in 1912. He studied theology at St. Mary's Seminary in Baltimore and was ordained to the priesthood on May 27, 1916 by the second Bishop of the Diocese, Most Rev. Daniel Feehan. Upon ordination he served as assistant at St. James in New Bedford until February, 1932, when he became pastor of St. o

.Joseph's Church, Woods Hole. In 1935 he was transferred as pastor to St. Mary's Church in Mansfield, and in 1942 became pastor of St. Kilian's Church in New Bedford. He succeeded the late- Rev. Msgr. Henry Noon as pastor of S~ James Church on May 1, 1947. He was made a Domestic Prelate on Feb. 27, 1958, and was elevated to the distinction of Prothonotary Apostolic on April 21, 1966.

PHILADELPHIA '(NC) - All clergymen should serve as chaplains in the armed forces before going into pastoral service. the chief of chaplains of the U, S. Army Department said here. "If they haven't, experi~nced life in the 'army or navy, they are out in left field," remarked Msgr. (Maj. Gen.) Francis L.. Sampson, who has served as , hi" th e Army stop c ap am smce 1967 .LJ , . Msgr. Sampson, who as a 'military chaplain in World W.ar II participated in the 'D-Day invasion of Europe and was later captur~d by German troops, was here to receive the Hall of Heroes Award of the Friends of the Chapel of Four Chaplains.. The organization was named to honor four World War II U. S. chaplains, Trapped on a torpedoed troop ship, the chaplail1s drowned after giving their life jackets to servicemen who didn't have such preservers,

"Newly' ordained clergymen going out to their first assignment as assistant pastors arc going into pari!ihes which have, in a great many cases, a majority of parishioners who are vetcrans' of the armed forces. ~hey sh.olllc! be able, to" communicate With these people., Troops Better Trained '. Msgr. Sampson, a pnest of the '. . Des Momes, Iowa dIOcese and 1;l veteran of three wars including Korea and Vetnam, praised today's American soldier. "They are better than their fathers in World War II," he' said. "They are better trained. Above all, they are better led. Their fathers went to battle with officers that were as green as they. Today's soldier is led by experienced combat officers. "Like his father, today's soldier is true to his faith," the monsignor, said, pointing out that Catholic servicemen often make sacrifices to attend Mass.

Stressing the need for ministers, priests and rabbis to serve as chaplains, Msgr. -Sampson said:

"But they are not blind fallowers," he said of the American troops, "They have a better education. ,They ask questions."

Vatican Pledges Fair Hearings For Writers VATICAN CITY (NC) - The Vatican office that guards the faith has guaranteed, in a new set of norms avoiding any mention of "heresy" or "excommunication," that any Catholic theologian or writer with apparently unorthodox opinions will get a fair and democratic hearing. The Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, the former Holy Office, said in announcing them at a news conference that the norms would govern all examinations of the publicly expressed opinions of Catholics on 'matters of revelation and Catholic doctrine. "In the congregation today there is no electric chair, not even a gas chamber,'" jested Msgr. Joseph Tomko, a congregation, official,when reporters raiseq que'stions from the past about., accusations without a hearing, judgments without appeal, and the ancient smell of smoke and the stake. Clarify Ideas Msgr. Tomko said the new rules - consisting of 18 numbered paragraphs and running almost 1,000 words-:-were PllStoral in intention and were concerned with "clarifying ideas rather than' condemning them." The spirit of the, new norms, he insisted, aims at a calm and impartial examination of ideas expressed by a Catholic who~ for one reason or another, may have caused a' problem of faith for another Catholic. He stressed that the new apapproach, of the c:;~ngregation, as .. expre!jsed bY,.the, ,latest norms, is not to deal in terms of a "trial" or "process." Instead, the idea is to determine what a given author thinks, whether or not what he thinks is in conformity with the teachings of the Church', and if it is not, what' can be done about it. ' Two }o'orms As Msgr. Tomko put it: "the spirit of this examination doesn't seek to throw someone out of the Church but to clarify the thoughts and ideas cif the author." , The norms set up two forms of examination: ordinary and extraordinary. The extraordinary form, which would be rare, would involve cases in which, opinions expressed are "clearly and certainly erroneous," without any doubt or qualification. , In such cases the local bishop would be advised of the congregation's decision and the author would be asked to correct his opinion. The ordinary examination is more important- because more common. It will involve cases in which the thought or opinion expressed may be doubtfuleither in what it says, or in the way it says it.

Envoy Meets Pope VATICAN CITY (NC)-Popc Paul VI met recently with Greek Orthodox Metropolitan Meliton of .Chalcedon to discuss ways of increasing relations between the Catholic Church and the Orthodox patriarchate of Constantinople. Metropolitan Meliton rep,resented Ecumenical Orthodox Patriarch Athenagoras I of Con- . stantinople.

Reformed Drug Addicts Explain Procedures at Marathon House . BY PATRICIA McGOWAN

No Recession in Charity.

ASST. GEHERAl-f'!\A~JAGER: Rev. John,. rI: Driscoll i

LONDON (NC) - The British national 'postal strike, no», about two months old, may cause some Catholic charitable organizations to fold if it continues for another two or three weeks. The strike is causing serious iosses to some Catholic charita: ble organizations, missionary socities and other Church groups relying mainly on advertising and mailed donations. The groups are often unable, because of the strike, to receive requests for aid, to respond t.o those they do receive or to re- . ceive funds sent them. . The very successful Catholic Inquiry Center, which advertises in the national press about its free mail correspondence course in' Catholicism has been hard hit. Outgoing correspondence courses are 'piled high in the center's London headquarters, and its most recent prepaid advertising in the press has probably been wasted.

INDIA: DON'T WASTE THE . WATER

People, too, we sometimes take for granted. In India there are 530 million-more than twice as many people as in the U.S.A. and Canada com·, bined. The average Indian's take·home pay is .Jess than 50¢ a week. What can you do about it? Write to me. We'll put you in touch with the person in India you can help to help himself and others. For instance, the deserving young lad who wants to become a priest ($15 a month, $laO a year). Or the prayerfUl young teen·ager who feels called to tie a Sister ($12.50 a month, $150 a year). Or the orphanage child, saved from the streets, who needs only an even chance (and $10 a month) to become a responsible, self·supporting grownup.

The executive board of the Boy Scouts of America's national council wilf present the Silver. Buffalo Award to the Pennsylvania Ordinary. at the council's annual meeting on May 28 in Atlanta, Ga. Bishop Connare served as national moderator of Catholic scouting for over eight years. His previous scouting honors include the Silver B~aver and Silver Antelope awards. The Silver Buffalo Award is given for outstanding service to youth on a national or international basis. "...""", ....

He gives us a searingly vivid catalogue of sufferings, outrages, atrocities, a proclamation of the truth that "pain is international," and a demonstration of the madness of war. His book is a conducted tour, on aching feet, of the hellish landscape of war. Repulsed we may be, but it is good for us to make this awful journey. We see war without glamor or glory, as the common soldier knows it, and perhaps we shall be persuaded that this kind of thing has to end.

Wrm~n's lJalfway House Founder

"Th, ;0 I,m;,yi m, is the basic cause of crime in:' the I United States' today. In the !last generation family life has deteriorated more t~an inanyo~her period of our civilization." This is the expert o~i:nion of a tnan ' who should really know. I He, is John Metevier, who Inot I only holds down two extremely challenging jObf but _is als? a founder and diljector of a halfway house ,for Iwomen recently released from' prison. I ' I During the ~ay Metevierl is head social wOl1ker' ,at the Massachusetts , co~j.ectional Irlstitute at Bridgewater. One everting a week he, is ~n instructor~ I in I the Law Enforcement Program in the Evenirl g Division [' of Stonehill Colleg~. Wearing seve~lal hats is a task that the husky, fatherlY-loo~ing man seemed to' take in stride. At his desk in ap office deed in the stone labyrinth that is Ithe correctional institution, he dis-, cussed the thre~ facets of l:hiS' life, all concernbd with the rehabilitation of ~nfortunate ruman beings. I "The problems of law enforcement have changed drasticall~ in the last 10 yea1s," he decla~ed.

The typical drug addict at the institute has been arrested for larceQY or breaking and entering or selling drugs. The young man may go to court and admit his drug problem and the court makes the decision whether or not to remand him for treatment as an addict. Two of the 150 addicts spoke recently to Metevier's class at Stonehill. They said in their talk that they had started on marijuana and for the rest· of their lives would be afraid to use it again because it would be the road' back to hard drugs. There are presently at the institute 89 mentally retarded men, many sent there as youngsters on criminal charges as "defecttive delinquents."

BALTIMORE (NC) Maryland's State Board of Education unanimously opposes "in principle" . proposed state aid which financially pressed nonpublic schools say is needed to stay open. , James 'Shaneman, Baltimore archdiocesan director of information,' said that if state aid is n~t forthcoming.

Increase in Amount of Education Seen Basis for Gener(Jtlon Gap .,

"

J

WASHINGTON (NC) ~ What so many people have been call'jng a "generation gap" may turn , , out to be an education gap. This is an opinion put forward hy somc competent scholars in, connection with a new Census Bureau study which shows there has been an "expiosive" increase in the amount of education young Americans have received in the iast 30 years. Research has shown that those who havc attended college are generally more liberal in their attitudes toward sex, politics, child rearing and religion than those who have not gone on to higher education, according to i Prof. Theodore Newcomb of the University of Michigan. "And there is much !110re in common between the educC\ted y.oung and the educated old, the., between the educated young and the less-educated young," he added... . . Kenneth KenIston, a Yale scholar concerned with the youth culture, said he feels "an enormous amount of the generation di.ffer,7 nce is attributable to educatIOn. The ,Census· Bureau, study shows: High School Diplomas The proportion of. young . Ameriean adults with college degrees has almost tripled, up from . 6 to 16 per cent, since ).940.

than doubled, up from 13 to 31 per cent, in the same time. The proportion . of young adults with high school diplomas or more has gone from 38 to 75 per cent.· (Keniston ·said: "It is absolutely. unprecedented in world histo~y to have 75 per cent of an age group with at Icast a high school education.") The fathers of almost twothirds of these in college today did not go beyond high school. The total numbcr of young people betwecn 14 and 24 years Qf· age increased to 40 million (47 per cent) since 1960. They now comprise 20 per cent of the population (a 5 per cent increase in 10 years. and the highest pcrcentage since i 940). College' Students The number of college students increased from 4.5 million. in the 1964-65 academic year to 7,';4 million in 1969.70. The num~er' of black college students increased even faster than the total, .from 234000 to 492,000. Blacks, comprising 11 per cent of the population went from 5 to.7 per cent of the college population. Of all tl:lose 16 to 24 years of age, 43 per cent are in school, 33 per ce!lt work, 7 per cent are in military. ~ervi~!l, . 3 per. cent are uncmploy.ed, 14 per cent are not.in the labor force. The median age of the pOplllation dropped to 27.6 years iii 1970, the lowest in 40 years. However, it is not expected tIJ get any lower but to rise, as.the "war boom" babies grow older, ~itting a median of 30 years by 1985.

Mississippi Kills AborHon Bill JACKSON (NC) - A House committee of the Mississippi legisluture by an 11-2 vote killed a bill which would have stripped the state abortion law of virtually all restrictions. A massive letter writing campaign by residents from all parts of the state was credited with bringing about defeat of the measure. Opposition cume principally from the Right to Life Committee of the Catholic Natchez-Jackson diocese, Protes-

tant and Jewish clergymen, The ill-fated bill had been introduced by Rep. Robert Lennon of Hattiesburg. It would have allowed abortions for any reason up to the 24th week of pregnancy. The measure was referred to the House Judiciary "A" Committee which voted against the bill five minutes after u public hearing on the measure had been concluded. Meanwhile a less stringent

measure to amend the state abortion law was introduced by Rep, William Tisclale, only member of the legislature who is a physician. The present law permit.s abortion only to save the life of an expectant mother. The Tisdale bill would ullow abortion whetl birt.h would be 'a serious threat to the expectant mother's mental or physical health, and when the pregnancy results from rape ur incest.

Because the local bishop may today permit laity to, receive Communion from the cup at any Mass, practically speaking, when it can be done ,with reverence and, spiritual profit. "Lay ministers of Holy Communion." Why? Because an ever increasing number of dioceses have asked for and received permission to employ them where needed, '''Communion in the hand." Why?

Leader Promises Religious Liberty KAMPALA (NC) - Within a week after taking over government leadership in Uganda, Maj.

"I reassur'e you togethe'r. wi,th all' Ugandans 'and, th~ whole world that our new Republic of Uganda will be guided by a firm belief in the equality and brotherhood of man, and in peace and good wll to all. For that reason 1 wish to state that our new,repU.blic will allow total religious freedom to everybody" without fear or favor," Dada declared. Dada, who led the coup in late January against President Milton Obote, also said: "We have had in the past in Uganda the prob• lem of religious conflict, either, between ,different religions or amo~g members of the same ,religion. 1 very much hope and pray that this kind of spir.it will die with the old republic and that the new republic will bring with it a sense of religious brotherhood that will rise above small differences." Uganda became independent in 1962 after about 70 years of British rule. In 1966 the constitution was suspended by Milton Obote, whose party has a socialist orientation. The army. takeover occurred while Obote was on his way back to Uganda from, a British Commonwealth meeting in Singapore, Of nearly 8 million 'Ugandans I about 2.7 million are Catholics.

, Monsignor' Gallagher Retires SCHOOLBOY"S PORTS 'IN THE DIOCESE By PETER J. BARTEK Norton High Coach

Schoolboys Advance Toward Mass. Tech Tournament Finals It will all be over next Tuesday, March 9; but for the next five days the drama will, continue as the stage is being set for the finals of that March extravaganzathe Massachusetts Schoolboy Tech Tournament.' Class A and B quarter-final games will be played tomorrow and was Bristol County League champion New Bedford. According to Saturday evenings. The win- the prognosticators, New Bedners will move into semi-fi- ford's biggest concern has .to be

In the smaller school Class C and D divisions the winners of games played earlier this week will commence play in the final stage of competition scheduled to start tonight. Quarter-finals of "C" take place tonight, the "D" semi-finals Friday and the "C" semis Saturday. Then it's on to ~oston Garden for the finals. . Six teams were placed in the "favorite" category prior to tapoff time in the 15 team Class A bracket. Among those chosen

the fact that. it played in a "weak Bristol County League" and may have trouble against strong opponents who are accustomed to stiff competition. The Whalers drew Xaverian of the Catholic Conference as their first round opponent. If successful in that contest the Crimson and White will meet the winner of the Archbishop WilliamsBrockton game in a quarter-final match tomorrow. ' The winner of the Bishop Stang of Dartmouth-Newton'contest will oppose a strong Somerville contingent also tomorrow.

Norry Clubs Set to Bring New Bedford Vocational will meet the winner of the Haver路 hill路Boston College High game Saturday if it beats Revere in .. opening round action. Many people have been saying that Barnstable is the best high school basketball team, in the state. Now is the time for the Red Raiders to prove they were worthy of that praise. The Capeway Conference was not especially strong this season 'and the champions from Barnstable may find the going a little more difficult in the tourney. But, as strong as the Class C field may be, the Raiders certainly deserve to be rated "the team to beat." If Barnstable falters there are are seven other teams from the area ready to challenge for the "C" title. Since most schools in the dio-

Title Back

cese fall into the Class C. division there is more of a chance of bringing a state title to the ,area in that classification than in any other. Over the past four years the Narraganset League has produced the Class C champion three times. In 1967, Holy Family High of New Bedford defeated Oliver Ames of Easton 57-48 to win the crown. 1968 saw Case High of Swansea down Stoughton 58-57 for the title and Holy Family beat North Andover 35-34 in 1969 to give the Narry loop its third consecutive Class C title. Last year Coach Bob Gordon's Case Cardinals lost to Andover 64-57 in the"C" finals. Four Narry teams are ready and able to assume the responsibility of returning the title to the area if Barnstable fails.

Continued from' Page One Memorial Day, 1966, was a highlight in the priestly career of Monsignor Gallagher. On that day, in a private Mass, he thanked God for having given him 50 years in His service. After more than 50 years at anything, one might be forgiven for letting down a little. But Father Gallagher was not the "letting down" type. One of the most outstanding characteristics of the monsignor was his love for and interest in his people, For years he has listened to their problems, helped them out of their difficulties, rejoiced in their good fortune and kept them in his prayers. ' The parishioners of St. James -and ma,ny not of his flockwere, his family, close to his heart and continually in his thoughts. Despite the troubles he has seen and the heartbreak he has shared, the Monsignor retains a whimsical sense of humor that he turns on himself as often as on the next person. He is a born raconteur, who can come up with a topping story in any company and whose eyes' refIectthe amusement he feels as he tells it. He is a man of deep charity, who understands the weaknesses of man and Who is more interested in steering him back to the ,Lord than exacting due penance. He delights in' children and one of the highlights of the school year at St. James School to him is the annual "kindergarten graduation" ,in which the pre-primary students display their erudition to parents and pastor. He sits in a front row, a smile on his face, clapping his hands red as one tot after another "performs" on the great occasion..

But the sick at St. Luke's Hospital find him a gentle man as he visits them at odd hours and brings their Lord to them in Holy Communion. HI~ friends cut across social and economic and religious backgrounds.路 They are people he met when he mediated a textile strike in New Bedford in 1928. They are the ones he met as he organized and headed the Catholic Welfare Bureau there in the late 1920's. They are members of service clubs to whom he has given benediction-and given of himself-on many an occasion over the years. , He served as chaplain to the Catholic Physicians Guild and the Knights of Columbus. He has been a director of the former Junior Sassaquin Hospital, Achievement and the New Bedford Boys" Club. Whenever there was work to be done for the betterment of the people of the community, Father Gallagher was there: Everyone gets tired once in a while, but Father Gallagher was one of the lucky ones who could usually manage to conceal it. He tossed off quips as he traveled through the city leaving a touch of brightness behind him. But more important, wherever he went, he left' the indelible impression of a good oman and a good priest.

Says Concordat Is Outmoded MADRID (NC) - The Spanish governmen~ ha~ denounced the

1953 concordat with the Vatican saying it is willing to end its say in the appointment of bishops if the Church will give up special exemptions and privileges, The announcement by the Ministry of 'Foreign Relations, which termed the concordat "outmoded," caught many state and Church officials by surprise, including the leadership of the Spanish Bishops' Conference. The bishops planned to meet in February to study a draft for a new concordat submitted by the foreign ministry's church and worship section a few weeks ago after long months of negotiations between government and Vatican officials. According to the announcement, the government is ready to end mutual privileges and accept the Second Vatican Council's directives "regarding persons invested with the episcopal dignity" provided: . The Church is willing to accept a revision in government subsidies; All Church members are subject to the laws of the nation; All Spaniards can decide freely on religious matters affecting them personally.

JOHN'S

Assistant Director WASHINGTON (NC) - Sister Marie Lenahan, former assistant president of Mercy Catholic Center in Darby, Pa., has been appointed assistant to the director, department of health affairs, United States Catholic Conference. She succeeds Sister Mary Maurita who became executive director of the Catholic Hospital Association last Fall. Both are Religious Sisters of Mercy.

Stiff Competition in liD" for Cape Clubs Holy Family, of course, is one of the Narry teams that is cap路 able of climbing to the top of the "C" ladder. Case has shown signs of strength ('uring the season and with a little luck could go all the way. Bishop Connolly High of Fall River surprised in the New, En- , gland Catholic tourney and won the Class C championship. There is good reason to' side with the Cougars in the Tech. Somerset, the fourth Narry team in the Tech, has not been in the post-season event for a decade; but the way it h as been playing lately this may be the Blue Raiders year. Considered an also ran at the' beginning of the Winter, Somer'set battled Holy Family right down to the final game of the season for the Narry title. In that contest, Coach Ray McI)onald's charges edged the Parochials 63-62 to earn a share .:~ .~ .' ..

of the championship. If momentum is an asset, the Raiders certainly have it on their side en'tering tourney competition. Fairhaven and Wareham were not able to keep up' with Barnstable in the Capeway Conference play, but did qualify for the' Tech. It is unlikely that either will do well, but stranger things have happened. North Attleboro" once a member of the Bristol County circuit, earned a tourney berth With its second place finish; in the Hockomock League. ,. Martha's Vineyard staged a strong come back in the Cape Cod and Island loop and qualified with PrQvincetown for Class 0 competition, However, the chance of either winning' the title in the small school division is slight with Acton-Boxborough, defending champion and winner of 39 straight, a strong favorite.
