Hornsby Plan Means Annihilation A month ago the Reverend Patrick J. O'Neill, superintendent of diocesan schools, proposed a ph~n to the Fall River School Department. At that meeting with the Fall River School Committee and the Diocesan School Board, Father O'Neill outlined the proposal in general terms and expressed his wish that if the School Committee could accept the proposal in principle, then all of the administrative details could be determined at a later date on the appropriate levels. Monday evening, March 2, the Reverend James Hornsby of the Fall River School Committee presented a plan entitled "A Sec-

Reacts .to New Proposal ond Look at Shared Resources:' This plan has many points of agreement with Father O'Neill's plan. However, there are some serious points to be reconsidered.

We are in accord with the historical aspects. However, when Mr. Hornsby states: .

Trace Nun Vocations Drop To Turbulence of Times

Fr. Lussier Requiem Rites

PHILADELPHIA (NC) - An inquisitive priest has learned that the turbulence of the times, in addition to changes in religious communities, is the No. 1 reason for the decline in vocations to the Sisterhood in this Pennsylvalllia area. Msgr. Edward J. "What do you think could or Thompson, who is Philadelshould be done to help increase phia archdiocesan vocations vocations to the Sisterhood?" director, reached his concluMore than 92 per cent "assion based on 5,600 replies to his two-question survey which was conducted among 7,300 juniors and seniors in 28 area high schools, novices and postulants in i5 communities and 39' Sisterhood vocations directors. The Philadelphia prelate asked: "What do you feel are the reasons for the present day decline in vocations to the Sisterhood?"

Church Leaders Support Pope On Celibacy WASHINGTON (NC) Though controversy on the issue of mandatory celibacy for priests persists, Church leaders around the world are rallying in ever-growing numbers behind the firm position of Pope Paul VI. Prelates joining with their national conferences, or speaking individually, have made strong public pronouncements supporting the Pope's insistence that the celibacy law must remain in force. For example, the Scottish bishops issued a joint declaration backing the Pope and asTurn to Page Six o

serted that our restless, turbulent, changing, violent times have much to do with the de<;line," Msgr. Thompson said, adding that changes in religious communities were also cited as a chief factor in the decline. "Reasons for girls not entering the convent were found in the girls themselves by all groups questioned," Msgr. Thompson observed. "These reasons included: the good life, fear of loss of freedom or individuality, reluctance to make a life-time commitment, the plethora of temporary servo ice-salvation opportunities outside religious life. Putting all these things together, we have the profile of a very free-spirited girl who never had it so good and who, in her own way, can do her thing for self and for society without really adverting to what it really means to consecrate and vow herself to Christ permanently:' The survey disclosed "many possible postulants just don't know what is the true, solid nature of religious life, so therefore, they won't even consider it," he declared. Msgr. Thompson said most' high school girls questioned view the religious life as "mysterious, medieval, secret, hidden, not normai, depersonalizing, irrelevant, unnecessary, going out of business:' He added that the large, publiCized number of nuns leaving religious life is a factor in the vocation decline. Regarding suggested solutions to the vocation crisis, Msgr. Thompson said 14,000 answers ranged from "getting rid of voca· tion directors to eliminating Sisters and religious life completely:' Other suggestions included prayers for vocations, updated spiritual formation programs and a general deepening of the spiritual life of Sisters, he asserted. Programs of convent visits for interested girls, association of nuns with possible candidates, school talks by young nuns and better religion courses in high schools also were suggested.

Father Lovasik explains the purposes of his institute as fourfold: to intensify the Christian life in its members and in society; to witness to Christ by apostolic zeal and personal exampIe; to share in works of charity on the parish and community level; and to teach religion in homes and CCD programs. Spiritual practices include daily Mass and meditation and guidance by a spiritual director. The ideal of members, says Father Lovasik, "is to live and

feel with the Church, and their concern is the service of the People of God." FamO Well-Being .Y The Family Service Corps dedicates itself to "the spiritual, social, emotional and physical well-being of the family of any race or creed, especially where it may be sick, poor or otherwise underprivileged." The rule of the secular institute is based on the spirit of the Gospels and the documents of Vatican II. Members live in small communities and are selfsupporting.

Urge Mid-East Pea.ce Talks PHILADELPHIA (NC) - Nations at war in the Middle East have been urged by leading Philadelphia churchmen to cease military hostilities and begin peace talks. Issuing the joint appeal were John Cardinal Krol, archbishop of Philadelphia; Dr. Rufus Cornelsen, executive director of the Metropolitan Christian Council of Philadelphia, and Rabbi Elias Charry, president of the Board of Rabbis of Greater Philadelphia. The appeal is being sent to Egypt's President Gamal Abdel Nasser,Jordan's King Hussein, Israel's Prime Minister Golda Meir and the heads of other nations at war in the Middle East. The churchmen urged the warring nations to "desist forthwith from military conflict and to begin direct negotiations with one another to seek an unimposed peace so that the peoples of the Middle East can develop their full creative potential." The churchmen stressed that "every. nation has the right to exist without fear that it will be destroyed by its neighbors." Direct negotiations: they maintained, is "civilization's only proven way of bringing about a peace which is just and will endure." . The declaration asserted that "comlQon to our faiths-Islam, Christianity and Judaism-is the imperative that we live as brothers."

O~ ~ ~ ~$Ugiornl~ ~n LOY~$iG~~ BATON ROUGE (NC) Eleven major Christian religions in the state have formed the Louisiana Interchurch conference' when leaders of the denominations met at First Presbyterian Church for document-signing ceremonies. Seven Protestant communions and four Catholic dioceses, representing more than two million Louisiana Christians, make up the new ecumenical organization. Signing the document at a constituting assembly were representatives from the Episcopal Church, the Lutheran Church in America, the United Church of Christ, the United Methodist Church, the Presbyterian Church in the U. S., the United Presbyterian Church, U. S. A., the Christian Church (Disciples' of Christ), and the Catholic archdiocese of New Orleans and the dioceses of Lafayette, Alexandria and Baton Rouge. More than 145 delegates to the interchurches' constituting assembly heard three biShops at a dinner held at the Catholic Life Center, before the ceremonies at the First Presbyterian Church. 'True Unity' Bishop Aubrey G. Walton of the United Methodist Church, Bishop Iveson B. Noland of the Louisiana Episcopal Church and Archbishop Philip Hannan of New Orleans spoke briefly. At the document-signing ceremonies. later, delegates heard the Rev. John Macquarrie of Union Theological Seminary, New York City stress that "true' unity" " mu~t bea. uni,ty wl)ich permits tJ!¢' fHII~Wfr,e,e~om. ~" /lB~t,we,. must;, remembeJl' finally 'that man ~s' an historical being," he said. "Unity cannot come by decree or by ,negotiation, Intercommunion 'would mean nothing if it were simply voted by church governing boards ,or decreed by bishops. It is only as we grow together in our common service of Christ that we shall, build a common history in which really profound unity can arise."

Racial Balance Goal Of Catholic Schools BATON ROUGE (NC)-Catholic schools in the Baton Rouge diocese will not serve as a haven for segregationists trying to escape newly integrated public schools, Bishop Robert E. Tracy has warned. The prelate announced that it would be the policy of his diocese to work toward achieving racial balance in all Catholic schools in the diocese, with enrollments proportionate to the racial composition of the diocese as a whole. A recent study revealed the diocese is eight per cent black, the bishop said, but the percentage is not distributed uniformly throughout the entire area. "Some of the communities reveal sharply contrasting racial percentages," he said. "For example, the Catholic community at Plaquemine is only four per cent black, but that Donaldsonville, only 21 miles south, is 31 per cent black." The policy of the diocese, Bishop Tracy said, would be to reserve a proper proportion of each Catholic school enrollment for "Catholic black applicants."

Thurs., March 5, 1970

Saturday will ""be a day of rejoicing and thanksgiving for, the Dominican Sistell's of Park Street, Fall River, for they will be celebrating the golden anniversary of profession of Sister Marie Matthieu Dutil and Sister Emmanuel Thibault. Sister Marie Matthieu Maria Dutil, was born in Fall River on August 30th, 1897. Her father was Joseph Dutil: a well-known collector at the St. Anne's Church Sunday Masses. Mr. 'Dutil died at the age of 34, leaving Mrs. Dutil alone to bring up her family of five, of which Sister was the oldest. A few months after the death of the father, the mother became very sick and was anointed while undergoing surgery. There was nothing that man could do for her, but God in His great mercy, gave her back to her children. She died 44 years later at the age of 74, after having been manager of the souvenir shop of St. Anne's Shril)e for 32 years. When Maria mentioned that she would like to be a nun, her mother disclosed a secret. She had been born with clubfeet. This was in the days when nothing could be done for one who had such an infirmity. Mer the doctor had said that this baby would never walk the mother's faith was challenged. She placed a medal· that had touched the relic of St. Anne de Beaupre between her little, legs while wrapping them in swaddling clothes '" '" . . The baby started to walk when' she was 10 months old. Now, do you wonder why her mother devoted herself to St. Anne's Shrine for so many years!

LA RIOJA (NC) - The clash between the provincial governor and the bisho;p of La Rioja over the governor's social development program reflects the growing conflict between Church and state in Argentina. Twice within a month Gov. Guillermo Iribarren of La Rioja province has' contested statements by Bishop Enrique Angelelli of La Rioja questioning the. effectiveness of the program, aimed at promoting agriculture and industry. "Are the public powers truly in 'tune with the needs and poor living condttions of our people who have waited so long for a change?" the bishop asked. "Are we to conttnue listening to promises and seeing only plans?" The govenor said he resented what he called the interference "of the negative preaching" of persons ",belonging to the highest cultural and social levels, of men who seem to have been conditioned by the ideologists of the far left." . JBishop Angelelli, backed by his priests who also signed the reply to this charge, said that "we are tired of listening to denunciations claiming that any attempt to free the people from inhuman, shameful conditions comes exclusively from the far, subversive left."

Anglican-Catholic Dialogue mncreases ROME (NC) - 'Within five years Roman Catholics and An-, glicans may be discussing con· crete ways to unite their churches, the president of the Vatican Secretariat for Promoting Christian Unity said here. But the Vatican official, Jan Cardinal Willebrands, warned that such a development would not mean the churches would be "at the door of the promised land." /. In a lecture at the Anglican Center here repeating what he had said in England, the, cardinal said that there had been too many experiences in the past, such as the failure of the Anglican-Methodist merger talks, to warrant such an expectation. But within five years, he said, dialogue between Anglicans and Roman Catholics might focus on what unity might mean in practice.

Catholic Relief Services



No one would wish to downgrade the wonderful work being done by the many existing private agencies of ch~r­ ity in the nation. But the fact remains that of these, ~he Catholic Relief Services, the agency of AmeJrican ·CatAolics, is the greatest: non-governmerit help organization i of its kind. , I 'It 'meets not only, immediate disaster needs all oyer the world and among people of every race and creed, but it established self-help programs which enable people to he'lp themselves. . i Every five dollars in support given to' '~he Cath~lic Relief Services multiplies to three hundred dollars worth of food and medical supplies for, the needy. I Last year Catholic Relief Services provided over ~ne hundred and thirteen million dollars worth of such ne~d to seventy-four nations of the world. Help was sent :to the hungry and war-torn, people of both Nigeria ard Biafra. ' ,, This is charity at its finest. It is the uSle. of char~ty money to its greatest extension. . i And it is a great tribute to the spirit of Ameri,ca that in the midst of its material wealth - and the problems this has caused it - it reaches out to othlers in neJd. This Sunday the Catholic Relief ServicE's colleCii~n will be taken up.

Humor? , "



In these'days, of Great Causes humor on the college 'campus does not seem to be as plentiful as it once w~s, so any' humorous incident must be seized upon qUick~y and appreciatively. ! The president of Brandeis University nisigned t~n days or so ago to tmter-the political arena. : His ,leaving was greeted with protests and ,some ~f the protestors niade this clear point: theyr,eserited his leaving at a time when more. students were getting involved in the ,protests and they resented the fact th*t he would not be around to be a target of thei.r activism. A humorous occasion indeed. The studerlts claimJd for themselves the freedom to protest. -They resented in him his freedom to choose not to be their pr«~sident any longer. , , . There is an interpretation of free speech. that sa~s this is not a right but a freedom. It is not a right because while a man can speak, no one has the duty to listea. So the use of free speech, this interpretation goes, is, really a freedom to speak a.nd .not a right to speak. And if someone wishes to listen, fine. And if someone does not choose to listen, that is his freedom. -

The bishops 'who also suspend'ed'the seminary's academic for '1970, said that the Spaniards, 'members of the Hispano-American Priestly Cooperation Work, "are not leaving the seminary 'for doctrinal, political or moral reasons." But a reliable 'Church source here said that one of the reasons for the priests' ouster was that they "neglected the spiritual formation of the seminarians and instead devoted their principal efforts to social works for the poor." " Bishop Jose Gutierrez Granier of Cochabamba told the organization priests in his See that they are "guests of the diocese * * -' with no further parish assignments."

Bishop Connolly Pastoral "The poor you have always with you." St. John XII:8 Beloved in Christ: The Catholic Faith has always been clear on concern for the poor. In that, we are true to our Founder. Christ was born poor, "emptying Himself of His Divinity." He lived poor. His heart was with those needing help, physical as well as spiritual. To a rich would-be-disciple, he said: "Go, sell what you have and give to the poor, and then follow me." (St. Mark; x,21) He praisedZachary, the tax-gath~rer, because he was good to the poor. Rich as our country is, we are not ,without slums and social problems. The government has many times declared a war on poverty, but the victory is further and further away. What then of lands more densely populated than ours? What of those to whom a blight means famine, -a plague, death, and a tempest, desolation? We have always had the means to help, and thank God, our nation and Church have been among the first. Europe after the war, Latin, America in the fifties up to now, the near and far East, and Africa as well, are all our beneficiaries. Fortunately, we have been equipped to bring aid to, the most distant points of need. , Food, medicines, health and home services, that have always been part of missionary effort, are provided now on·a scale bigger than ever by the Catholic World Welfare under the direction of Bishop Swanstrom of New York. He works for Bishops Relief. '. He has a genius for organizing 'and,'enl!sting;:ilid' ffom' dioceses throughout the:-,,'UulcJ, "',"ai1d' :'str.en'gtheiledwhat 'We give. to the point that' five dollars here is worth" over 300 in what it brings to the point of need. ' This is a matter of record. And this is what makes our Bishops Relief so significant. We could make no better investment in Charity than this. It goes a long, long way, practically to the ends of the earth. I 'personally have met many agents of Bishops Relief in the field. One of them, - Maria de Salvo Schmi9t, who was a heroine to the poor in Constantinople, is now at Amman, in Jordan. She is where danger exists, but that's where the need is. This is typical of an image of Christlike concern that must always be part of our Faith. No one is really poor who has such assurance of relief, close at hand. The only poverty to fear is that of never knowing kindness or charity in our hearts. As usual, the Fourth Sunday of Lent is marked as Bishops Relief Sunday. The old physical sacrifices are pretty much gone. But prayer and alms giving have a highly significant role if we are to come out of a penitential season better than we went into it. Those who have known want will give generously, as they always do. Those that' have a better potential, who judge investments by quick and substantial returns, could not do better in time and eternity, than to keep on giving to help relieve such as have no hope. "What we do for one of these least, we do for Him." Always grateful for the generosity that has long characterized the. Fall River Diocese, and with a hearty bleesing on all, I remain, Faithfully yours in Christ, ~ JAMES L. CONNOLLY, Bishop of Fall River. o


Nuns' Committe'e Completes Plans F'or Organization ST. LOUIS (NC)-A 42member national task force of women Religious completed plans here for a nationwide organization to represent some 165,000 nuns in the United States. The plan will be submitted for approval to the third National Meeting for Women Religious to be held April 17-19 in Cleveland, at which an attendance of 3,000 is expected. The proposed organization, to be known .as the National Association for Women Religious, would have six principal objectives: To give impetus and direction to the organization of local groups of women Religious. To work for greater participation of women Religious in the decision-making process and the implementation of decisions on. local and national Church levels. To provide channels through which women Religious may speak with one voice. To share research by means of published newsletters, editorials and statements. To establish a national office to support and service local Sisters' organizations. To conduct an annual meeting which would focus attention of Sisters· on current issues. 'Re-entry Problem' The meeting here also proposed a 20-member steering committee be elected at the Cleveland convention to serve' as an interim governing body until delegates and national officers could be elected. . The' task force recommended adoption of a plan to provide (or open membership' of all Religious women in the. association while at the same time as,'Ouring equal representation for 'm!ividuals, councils of Sisters :md other organizations of nuns. Sister Ethne Kennedy, of Chicago, task force chairman, said that, after years of cloistered and semi-cloistered security, there "is a bit of a re-entry prob· lem" for women Religious to assume some share in Church leadership. She expressed belief that "the emergence of the American Sister will be a catalyst in the church."

More Czech Church Controls Likely BONN (NC) - Although the Czechoslovakian government has r£:laxed certain controls on Church activities, other controls seemed likely to be imposed soon, it was reported here. The government has permitted members of the 37 communities of nuns in the country to work in hospitals, homes for the aged and other forms of social action, Previous restrictions limited Sisters to working in homes for the mentally ill and for aged priests. Representatives of the nuns who met with officials of the Czechoslovak ministry of culture to protest the limitations on their activities were told that they will eventually be permitted to accept novices if continuation of their work makes it necessary. The likelihood of controls on Church activity appeared in re~ cent meetings in Prague and Brno between Dr. Karel Hruza, head of the secretariat for Church Affairs in the Ministry of Culture, and Czech and Moravian priests.

"Do-it-yourself" Efforts Produce New l(itchen in 'New Bedford Church Hall By. Ellen Andrew They didn't exactly say it couldn't be done. But there were those who had their doubts when parishioners at St. John the Baptist Church in New Bedford decided to completely renovate the kitchen in the basement of the church.' That was in October, 1968. So, what's so .difficult about renovating a kitchen? Nothing, except that in this case, the old kitchen "fit" three workers whereas now r' 20 can toil comfortably at f church functions. The "do- ; it-yourself" efforts of 10 dedicated St. John parishioners will be culminated at a ham and bean supper to be served in the church basement March 14. .Proceeds will be. used' to pay for new kitchen equipment. "We'll have two sittings of 300 people each," says Jesse V. Santos, the project's chairman. "That would have been quite an undertaking in the past. "But now with the expanded kitchen, well, we're much better able to handle the job." Started In 1968 St. John parishioners have wanted to do something about !he kitchen for years; so finally, m 1968, they got down to brass tacks,. formed a committee and swung into action. It is noteworthy that there is little experience for such an undertaking among the group. Santos is a probation officer; Vito Gerardi, school teacher; Antone Arruda, mechanic; Manuel Cardoza, a retired boat work- , er; Richard Lopes, a bank manager; Henry Pimental, salesman; Jean Haun, gas company employee, and Tony Neves, a tradesman who did the cabinet work. "We didn't have much experience in this type of work," Santos remarked, "b.ut our crew worked awfully hard. Apparently, their efforts have not been in vain. "We started in October, 1968 and have worked Mondays and Wednesday nights from 7 to 9:30 or so. We brought some tools .with us and borrowed others. "We bought what materials . ·we needed. 1 would venture to say this is a $25,000 project that , we will complete for. about $4,000. We save on. labor, of course. We're not submitting a bill for the project. "We'll just about come in under the wire financially, too. It is my recollection we've spent about $3,900 of the $4,000 we have for the project. That's figuring it kind of close, I'd say." Labor of Love Santos' group, with Cardoza as its foreman, lowered the ceiling, broke down· walls, panelled walls and generally spruced up. the kitchen as it's never been spruced up before. Certain electrical, plumbing and floor work was paid for but the bulk of the work, a true labor of love, was done by the committee. "Even though we come from all walks of life, it's amazing

Pope Paul Urges Fratricidal War End in Brazil BELO HORIZONTE (NC) -Brazilians have been urged by Pope Paul to end "fratricidal wars" and eliminate dehumanizing "unjust social and economic conditions." The Pope's televised appeal to this strife-torn country climaxed the four-day B~azilian Bishops' Conference deliberations on such subjects as violence, arrests of clergymen, divorce and changes in .the liturgy of the Mass. 'Normal Legal' Rule Brazil has been hit by terrorist activities and repressive measures by the police and military ever sinc~ the government assumed dictatorial powers in December 1968. The military regime is ruling by decree on grounos that subversive groups are trying to overthrow the government. Hundreds, including priests and Catholic lay leaders, have been arrested. Both Brazilian and international groups have charged that the government is torturing political prisoners and a dossier containing data on the torture charges has been sent to Pope Paul by a European group. The Brazilian Bishops, deploring the chain of violence and represssive countermeasures by authorities, have urged the military junta to move toward "normal legal" rule by returning to constitutional government and permitting the normal functioning of the congress and the judiciary. Unjust ConditIons Pope Paul told Brazilians they emust "exercise a fair balance between strength and Christian prudence and a generosity th'at will eliminate the unjust social and economic. conditions, so dehumanizing and all kinds of fratricidal wars." He said that the condition of men requires people to help their "brother in his human and religious needs."

There are three divisions ~f women's styles that a~e ,. at the bottom of the barrel as far as fashion· and choice are concerned: half-sizes, maternity clothes and dresse$, and any type o( clothing for the chubby child. With SP much emphasis on dieting

Not only are the chubby. styles atrocious but some fabrics and trim are actual1y shoddy. Many stores won't touch the chubby sizes with a 10-foot pole and when they do condescend to lower themselves and stock a few they hide them in the far reaches of a back rack. Also many (not al1, of course) store personnel show- these fashions as if they were something to be ashamed of and hidden in dark corners. This of course doesn't help the poor child who has just s~ent an hour trying to fit into regular size clothes only to be told that only a chubby would fit her impossible shape.

NEWARK (NC)-For thc third time in as many years, the Brotherhood awards ceremony conducted by the New Jersey chapt~r of the National Conference of Christians and Jews was the target of protests. Target this time was a Negro educator, J. Harry Smith, a member of the editorial board of the Advocate, newspaper of the Newark archdiocese. Smith was one of four award recipients, but about 100 members of the Peoplc's Council, a dissident group of students and teachers at Essex County College, protested his selection. Smith is the chief executive officer of the recently founded two-year institution. In accepting the award, Smith took note of the pickets outside the hotel where the presentation was made, and said he was "with them in their thrust" even though they were calling for his resignation. . Last year pickets protested the giving of an award to Archbishop Thomas A. Boland, of Newark, because of charges about racism in the Newark archdiocese. Two years ago there was a demonstration against the selection of philanthropist Charles W. Englehard for 'an award because of his business interests in South Africa.

Spring Is Coming at Last And It's Begonia Time

.By Joseph and Marilyn Roderick

The crocuses are breaking through the ground, the daffodils are on their way, and in a word, Spring is just around the corner. That kind of statement normally is followed by a blizzard of record-breaking proportions, but nevertheless the signs arc A good many husbands arc right. One of my first indi- spoiled by mismanagement. cators of Spring is the fact Some women go about it as if. that I have to get my begoni- their husbands were balloons as started on or about the first week of March. Aside from pruning the grapevine this is one of the first activities of the approaching flowering season. We have mentioned begonias in this column before but they are su~h easy and colorful plants to grow that they are worth mentioning again. Tuberous begonias may be started in the house in peat pots or sand and then planted. in the garden by mid-Mayor after the last frost date has passed. I find that by starting them in early March, , they are large and strong by the time it is safe to plant them in the garden. Tuberous begonias are sold in nurseries and of late I have found them on display in' hardware stores, discount houses, ond grocery markets. Good begonias are expensive, about $8.00 a dozen, but the packaged types come a little cheaper. Don't Overwater I start mine in small pots filled with a mixture: of garden soil' and peat moss which has been given a good soaking. Plant the tubers as directed and water from time to time when the pots are dry. Do not overwater. To test for dryness, merely poke your' finger' into' the soil. arourid the tuber. The peat moss should absorb sufficient water to keep the tubers moist. The pots may be placed in a warm room (about 70 degrees) and left undisturbed. In no time at all the tubers will sprout and stems will appear. The. only thing that has to be done is to turn the pots occasionally so that the stem will not turn toward the light. When weather permits the plants may be moved to the garden. Begonias do especially well in the shade and are very colorful. They are rather tender so they should be planted out of the reach of children or rather away from ,their trampling feet. Because they are tender it is a good idea to stake them so that they will not fall under heavy bloom. In the Kitchen One of my fellow teachers is getting married this Summer and each day at recess we wait eagerly for the news on her preparations. Often half the fun of something as exciting and detailed as a wedding comes about in the preparation and because we're all romantic-minded females we're enjoying her plans almost as much as she is. How to Prepare a Husband Also, of course, we're all very free with the advice and because she's a very lovely young lady she listens (or at least has the good manners to pretend to). One thing that none of us has attempted to discuss with her as yet is the handling of the husband after the ceremony, and when my Aunt Mary came across this following recipe for a happy marriage I couldn't resist passing it on to my fellow teacher and to all future brides; and who knows, perhaps some. of us oldtimers could profit by a little advice too.

The subcommittee headed loy Sen. Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin has completed hearings. , Federal funded manpower and . training programs have taken on "a new look as well as a new reputation," Father Camille said. He stressed that constructive self-help programs, in which a portion of the tax wealth is reinvested in combatting unemployment, enables persons to attain self sufficiency. Asks Cooperation "They are not decidedly giveaways. It can be shown the trainees return the price of learning in revenues. In this way they pay jor themselves," said Father Camille who directs a j , training project called Peace Skills Center in Cleveland.

ROME (NC) - The second group of Catholic missioners to be deported from Nigeria in the wake of the Biafra war have brought out a tale of deathdealing hunger in the former enclave. Even prisoners of war in Nigerian prisons are reduced to eating grass, they said. Bishop Joseph Whelan, C.S.Sp., of Ow.erri said that while imprisoned in Port Harcourt he was awakened at ,night by the sound of prisoners of war climbing trees outside his cell to eat the leaves. "They were just skin and bones," the Irish bishop said. "They ransacked the leavings of the that were sent in to us by friends from outside the prison." Bishop Whelan was one of 17 members of the Holy Ghost congregation who were deported Feb. 19. He arrived in Rome the same day with all the deportees, including one Maryknoll nun" eight Sisters of the Holy Rosary, two Vincentian priests and one diocesan priest. All are Irish save Sister Vivian Votruba of Duluth, Minn., the Maryknoll nun. She is a medical doctor. Several of the missioners said the condition of prisoners of war should be brought to the attention of Nigerian federal authorities and of the world.

Educators Aver Private Colleges Need State Aid

TI-IE;' ANCHORThurs., March 5, 1970

Orders Release Of Objector

BOSTON (NC)-The ultimate survival of the dual system of private and public institutions of higher learning in Massachusetts is dependent upon state aid for nonpublic colleges and· universities, 'according to a report of a select committee of educators. The Select Committee for the Study of Financial Problems of Private Institutions of· Higher Education in Massachusetts presented a report of its year-long investigation to Gov. Francis W. Sargent. The governor named the committee a year ago. Its members included William G. Saltonstall of.Harvard University and Father Michael P. Walsh, S.J., president of Fordham University and former president of Boston College. $25 Million Annually The committee recommended that some $25 million in annual grants be given the non-public institutions, alloting 15 per cent of the cost of educating Massachusetts residents who are candidates for' degrees in the various colleges. The allotment would be based upon the actual cost' of educating the resident in a comparable public institution. The grants would be available to "all private institutions of higher education except those avowedly engaged in education primarily for religious training." The report assumed that the state's constitutional prohibition of public financial assistance to private educational systems would be removed before its recommendations. are implemented in the 1972-73 academic year.

Catholics Esasential In Protestant Plilln CHICAGO (NC)-Roman Catholics must be included in the parish level study of the plan to unite nine major Protestant denominations involved in the Consultation on Church Unio{l, a Protestant scholar and participant in the union planning de-, clared here. The Rev. Dr. W. B. Blakemore, dean of the Disciples Divinity House (Christian Churches) of the University of Chicago, said Catholic involvement in the union discussions was essential to maintain the true aims of the projected Church merger. "Roman Catholics need to be included in these discussions in order that they may be firmly convinced that the purpose of unifying is to effect more' adequate instrumentalities for Christian mission," Dr. Blakemore said. "Th!'l purpose of unification is not to have a bigger Church with which to compete with Roman Catholicism. Ecumenically minded Catholics already know that, but they need to be included in grassroots discussion of the union plan in order that Protestants and Catholics together can sense their unity of purpose."

School to Move CHICAGO (NC)-The Jesuits' Bellarmine School of Theology will move to the Hyde Park Section here by next September from its present location in North Aurora, Ill. It is the theological school of Loyola University here. FatherRobert Murray, S.J., the school president, said the presence of five seminaries and theological schools in the Hyde Park area is a chief reason for the move.

NEWARK (NC) - A federal judge here ordered the Army to release a Burlington, N. J., serv·iceman who became a conscientious objector after entering service. Pvt. Michael Stap, 20, a member of St. Paul's Catholic parish, Burlington, did not rely on the teachings of the Catholic Church to support his contention that he was entitled to discharge under Army regulations. During the trial, Stap admitted that his formal religious training had been Catholic but he said his beliefs on the immorality of war grew out of "living within a religious family and practicing the teachings of Christ." In his ruling, Judge Whipple said the evidence presented to the court was overwhelming that St.ap's opposition to war on moral grounds crystallized during military training, especially after being introduced to firing practice at standup targets. During the hearing the government introduced a letter from Stap's parish priest, Father Robert Heller, in which the priest said that the Church "teaches that at times there is reason and .-, justification for the use of force and even the taking of human life." Father Heller also said' that "At the same time, the Church reeognizes and holds that the final judgment of morality of an act is one's personal conscience."

Reports Deficit SILVIA PORTO (NC)-Bishop Manuel Antonio Pires of Silva Porto here in Angola announced that his dioce~e budget for 1969 showed a del1icit of some $35,000. Total income for the year was $197,000, including a $188,000 grant from the government. Expenditures were $232,000.

Asserts Hospita I Policy Conforms' To Theology

THE ANCHORThurs., March 5, 1970

Propose Ninth New York. See

PORTLAND (NC)-Portland's Archbishop Robert J. Dwyer said that a new policy on sterilization procedures adopted by Sacred Heart Hospital, Eugene, Ore., "marks no essential departure from the norms recognized' as valid by Catholic theology." The hospital announced that its policy now in effect "sets forth guidelines for sterilization procedures which may be done as a primary objective" when certain medical, surgical, psychiatric and g)rnecological conditions, recognized by the medical profession, exist. The hospital is operated by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Newark. The archbishop said after the hospital issued its policy statement, " certain confusion has arisen over the news handling of this policy." Secondary Effect "What has been reported as a surrender of Catholic moral principals in this instance, a promotion of 'birth control,' is actually a strengthening of the basic position sponsored by the Church and a. tightening of the medical scrutiny of· the individual case," Archbishop Dwyer said. The hospital statement noted that "for years, many people have believed that because Sacred Heart is administered by a Catholic order, sterilization procedures could not be done within the hospital." "Doctors and hospital officials point out that this is not entirely true; nothing in Catholic doctrine prevents the practice of good medicine. When the attending physician determines that the patient requires treatment, to control an illness or disease, that results in the secondary effect of sterlization, that treatment can be given," the statement said. Specific Procedure Under the hospital'S new policy, a seven-member committee of physicians review each case in which sterilization is recommended by the patient's physician. Members of the committee must agree unanimously that' sterilization of the patient is warranted and desirable. Archbishop Dwyer stated: "What is exceptional about the policy of Sacred Heart Hospital is this: the change involved here refers to specific surgical procedure. Prior to the decision to proceed with sterilization, two consultations must be held, the findings of which are then to be submitted to an examining board of medical staff members, whose decision is to be rendered unanimOUSly."

Episcopal Diocese Backs P'rayer Ban BOSTON (NC) - The annual convention of the Episcopal diocese of Massachusetts here adopted a resolution endorsing the 1963 U. S. Supreme Court decision banning prayers and Bible readings in public schools. Newly installed Bishop John M. Burgess, first black to head the diocese, presided at the convention of 1,000 delegates who adopted the resolution that declared formal prayers and Bible readings are "improper activity" in the public school system. The resolution said the "true beauty and depth of the Scriptures is lost in the casual, cursory readings in public schools," and also noted that the court had not ruled out the study of religion in the schools.


ALBANY (NC)-A petition to establish a new diocese in upstate New York is being prepared for study on the state and na-

tional levels before being forwarded to the Vatican. The Committee on Episcopal Succession said it prepared a memorandum at the request of Bishop Edwin Broderick of Albany, who said he would place the matter before the Catholic bishops of the state. The committee said it had a letter from John Cardinal Dearden of Detroit, president of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops, indicating that the matter would be considered by the Conference. Father F. Gerard McCloskey of Rensselaer, N. Y., and William G. Finin of Albany, Committee spokesmen, said there were basic inequalities in existingdiocesan boundaries which hinder growth factors. New York State's six million Cathoics, one third of all people in the state, live in eight sees: the New York archdiocese and the dioceses of Brooklyn, Rockville Centre, Albany Buffalo, Syracuse; Rochester and Ogdensburg.

Arizona Bishops. Oppose Abortion Law Changes Highlighting the widening efforts in various state legislatures to liberalize abortion laws, the Catholic Bishops

Robert Bishop Goes to Washingtoll F or National Government Study . ,.

By Ellen Andrew

The winter vacation of Robert Bishop, a senior honor student at Bishop Stang High in North Dartmouth, could be titled" Mr. Bishop Goes to Washington." While other less fortunate students busied themselves with fun 'n frolic for seven days, of Arizona have spoken out Robert was in the nation's capitol participating in a Presidential Classroom for Young against measures pending in the Americans. "It was quite an Arizona legislature. experience," Robert said in Elsewhere, the Hawaii legislature cleared what has been de- the comfortable living room scribed as the most liberal abor: of his home at 42 Arthur tion law in the nation. Gov. John Avenue, North Dartmouth. "I'll

B. Burns, a Catholic, has indicated he will let it become 'law without his signature. The Hawaii legislation, sponsored by Senator Vincent H. Yano, a Catholic and father of 10 children, repeals the state's 101-year-old abortion statutes and permits an abortion for the asking by any licensed physician or osteopath in a hospital licensed by the state or federal government, on a woman who has been a resident of the state for at least 90 days. Moral Evil Both Burns and Yano believe an abortion ought to be left to the individual decision of an expectant mother and a physician. In a joint statement Bishops Francis J. Green of Tucson, Ariz., Edward A. McCarthy of Phoenix, Ariz., and Jerome J. Hastrich of GallUp, N. M., whose diocese covers part of Arizona, defended "a cherished American heritage, the constitutional right of life." "The teaching of the Church is clear: The direct destruction of innocent life by' abortion is a serious moral evil. This is not an area for any compromise," the Bishops stated. They said genetic scientists have stated human life begins at the mOll1en~ 9f" conception; "psychiatrists have reported major lifelong guilt feelings and depressions after abortions, and . !)ediatricians have noted 85 per cent of pregnancies complicated ~y German measles have resulted in normal births, adding the birth danger should diminish with the new rubella measles vaccine. 'Serious Error' "It would be a serious error to o::en the doors to abortion on demand because of the emotional appeal generated by cases, actually very rare, in which conception is due to rape or incest and there is danger the child will be born with severe birth defects," the Bishops said. In both the Virginia and Maryland legislatures, bills to liberalize abortion laws of each state moved through committees with major provisions intact toward show-down votes ·in the legislative houses.

Germans to Assist Needy Countries ESSEN (NC)-The Association of German Dioceses has budget~ ed $12.8 million for disaster re: lief, development and pastoral work in underdeveloped' countries. The money will be taken from that received for the church tax imposed on all German church members. The funds will be used for underdeveloped nations in Asia, Africa and Latin America. Other overseas relief aid from German Catholics is channeled through the Misereor and Adveniat agencies. Adveniat aids the church in Latin America. German Catholics have donated more than $250 million to these two aid agencies in the past 10 years.

Rebuffs POW V'isit Attempt STOCKHOLM (NC)-A Hanoi diplomat here rebuffed attempts by four New York clergymen to visit U. S. prisoners of war being held in North Vietnam. "This is not a favorable time to get a visa to enter the Democratic Republic of North Vietnam," the charge d'affaires at the North Vietnamese embassy. told them, but he promised to forward their request to Hanoi's ambassador to Sweden. The foul' clergymen, however, may be able to carry their request to him themselves. He is now in Moscow, and the four plan to visit Moscow in an efforll:. to gather support for their mission. Sweden Prime Minister Olaf Palme also met with the group, andl encouraged their efforts. He declined, however, to use any influence to help the four get to Hanoi and urged them to pursue the matter further when they arrived in Moscow. Father Anthony Eremito of St. Raymond's Church in New York will travel alone from Moscow to Rome to see Pope Paul and try to enlist his aid in seeing the POWs. An earlier attempt to visit the Pope met with failure because the Pope had begun his Lenten rereat. Father Eremito's three companions on the trip are Rabbi Schulem Rubin of the Bronx, the Rev. Samuel J. Taylor of Brooklyn's First Presbyterian Church, and New York's Eastern Orthodox Archimandrite Bartholomew.

Celibate Priest Gives Witness 'Necessary to Faith VATICAN CITY (NC)-French Catholic writer Jean Guitton, writing in L'Osservatore Romano, has defended priestly celibacy on the ground that the faith "in these times of trials needs witnesses." In his article in the Vatican City newspaper Gultton said: "I know all the arguments in favor of the two priesthoods, the married and the celibate, and do not

consider them negligible. I also know that those who advance them intend to give help to the Church in the future by multiplying the number of priests and preventing weaknesses." But, he added,. "However great· the advantages, I believe that nothing can take the place of this higher truth: that faith, in these times of trials, needs witnesses."

The French philosopher and )'Vriter, well known in European Catholic circles, began his article by recalling a recent conversation with a Russian Orthodox bishop who~ he said, told him: "At times we ordain married persons but we· do not. admit that a priest should marry. We authorize an ecclesiastic to work in a factory so that he can make a living, but we want him to

give it up as soon as possible. And in the factory we want him to appear as a priest. "The priesthood is for us Orthodox a sacred function and thai is why we are convinced that you Westerners, you Latins, are not on the right road by allowing the problem of ecclesiastical celibacy to be discussed in public before the tribunal of opinion." . Guitton said the Orthodox bishop warned him: "Be careful -if in the West you disassociate priesthood from celibacy there will be a very swift decadence. . The West is not sufficiently mystical to tolerate the marriage of priests without decadence. The Church of Rome has retainedand it is its glory-this ecclesiastical asceticism for an entire millenium." Gutton said he believes that families need "these angels-the celiba:te priests," without whom many families could not even exist. Guitton, 68, a member of the


-roday Frel1lch Academy, was professor of philosophy at the University of Paris until 1968. Pope John XXIII personally invited him to be an observer at the general meetings of the Second Vatican Council. He is the author' of some 20 books, including a sixvolume work on "Modern Thought and Catholicism."
