Ask Financial Aid For Non-Public School Students SPRINGFIELD (NC) ­ The Illinois Federation of Citizens for Educational Freedom has asked a state legislative committee here to support a bill which would pro­ vide educational grants for the benefit of children in non-pub­ lic schoois. . The CEF recommended $100 grants be paid to the parents or guardians of an children in ac­ credited non-public high shools and $50 for those in grammar schools. George P. Smith, a member of the CEF national board of trus­ tees, testified in behalf of the grants at a public hearing held by the state commission on school problems. Noting that some 20 per cent of the children in Illinois are educated in non-public schools,

Just as they are regular in attendance at Mass, practicing Catholic parents are reason­ ably sure to see that their publicly schooled young regularly attend Sunday parish classes in catechism and religious instruction. To be sure, particular Catholic educational institutions will certainly be maintained, prob­ ably at a better-than-ever level. But vast city systems of Catholic grammar schools, junior high schools and high schools are very much under the gun. Study groups of the most em­ inent and informed Catholics are pondering the problem and preparing recommendations The tax implications for all residents of cities and states with sizable Catholic school systems is sobering indeed. Governor Rockefeller is said to have told one member of such a Catholic study group in New York. "For God's sake don't do it!" To which the rest of us, regardless of Faith or faithlessness, can utter a fervent Amen.

President's' Plan For Cities Gets

Jl:1E ANCHOR-

,Schedule Jewish Study Institutes

Li~tle '~espon'se

WASHlNGTON (NC) ~ President· Lyndon B. John­ 90n told Congress there was "no time to lose" in enacting the multi-billion-dollar plan to aid the nation's cities which he unveiled on Washington's Birth­ day: But there was no indication that Congress shared his en­ thusiasm. While the big-city mayors and the nation's \ home-building industry were busy praising the plan - which would, among other things, provide 26 million new homes in the next 10 years -two influential Congressmen were busy voicing their reser­ vations. Rep. Wright Patman of Texas chairman of the House Banking Committee, said he didn't like the President's proposal to raise the six per cent ceiling on FHA and VA mortgage rates. Rep. Wilbur Mills of Arkan­ sas, chairman of the Tax-writing W~ys and Means Committee, 81Hd he didn't like President Johnson's attempt to couple the long-installed 10 per cent in­ come tax surcharge to the urban legislation. N~body else said anything. The urban program, issued at the Texas White House where the President was spending a long holiday weekend, is cen­ tere,d around' the Housing and Urb;lD Development Act. of 1968, wholle goal is to help build 26 million new housi,ng uni.ts in 10 years. six million of these would re­ place slum housing units-,-that's 10 times the present replace­ ment rate. ' Cost $10 Billion Under the bill, 300,000 units would be started in fiscal 1969; 100,000 of them for low-income families aided by partial mort­ gage interest subsidies; 75,000 new public housing units; 35,000 new units under the rent sup­ plement program, and 90,000 new rental units for moderate­ income families. In all, the package would cost government and private in­ dustry about $10 billion. In addition to asking for money, the President also re­ peated his plea for fair housing legislation and issued his strongest recent endorsement of the Office of Economic Oppor­ tunity. The war on poverty, he said, "must be pressed, with renewed emphasis on the most critical needs of the poor." His urban message strength­ ened the President's apparent efforts to involve private indus­ try in alleviating the problems of the cities.

Suggest Catholics R~vise Inner Unity STOCKHOLM (NC)-In the ecumenical climate in which non-Catholics are seeking unity Ilnd Catholics are entering into dialogue with them, Catholics must "revise their idea of inner unity," the bishops of Scandi­ navia said in II joint Lenten Pastoral. Noting that many Catholics "fear that the unity of the Church is threatened," the bish­ ops said that "this unity has become more filled with ten­ sion than it has been for a long time in the history of the Church." When faith is challenged" the pastoral said, the bishops want to gi ve CaithoMes "'a deeper in­ eight into that faith." The pas­ toral urged "Eucharistic re­ newal in our parishes" because "'in the EUCharistic real unity ill realized."

Urges Patience With Renewal of Church 'Impatience Is Weakness' Archbishop Says CALGARY (NC)-·Archbishop Emanuela Clarizio, apostolic delegate to Canada, has cau­ tioned Catholics to be patient in the, "continual reformation" of the Church. During a talk to priests of the Calgary diocese, the Pope's rep- .. resentative said confidence in the. Church "is going through a graye crisis." " He ended his talk by thank­ ing the'thousands of priests and Sisters who "against the-' storms of time have remained faithful to their spiritual duties, 'giv:ing such "great good ,example of what can be done when' our ac­ tion is based upon fai th." - ,

Archbishop Clarizio is on a tour of western Canada.

Approach to Prayer

By Rt. Rev. Msgr. John S. Kennedy A book of pecu)i.ar strength and beauty comes to us from F'ather Francis Ohalet, a French priest who has pursued two careers in tandem: teaching languages in a' seminary and an active apostolate· among people of the working class. He is now chaplain to a project aimed present circumstances. It is recommended to those at rehabilitatirig prostitutes. warmly of all ages and conditions. His book, translated by 'Listen Pilgrim' Mary Ilford, is called Cries from the Heart (Sheed and Ward, 64 University Pl., New York, N.Y. 10003. $3.95). It might be called a prayerbook, w hie h would probably kill the interest of many. Rather, let us call it a book of prayers and say at once that from it any one can learn a DeW approach to prayer. It is introduced by a letter to "Henry, Michael, Lucille, and aM the others.". People, that is, whom he has met ill. the course 01. his work. They are 'luite ordinary folk. ' "-r can't -pray!' That's what yeu've all told me some time or another." But it seemed to him that the very words of anguish, puzzlement, pleading w h i c h they addressed to him, were really prayers misdirected, or could readily be turned into proper prayers. Psalms Pertinent For, as he' read the Psalms, after the day's appointments, it occurred to him that everything which people had just been saying to him had been better put in the Psalms many centu­ ries ago. Those who wrote tpe Psalms had their troubles and their aspirations to'. God, an4 so prayed readily and power­ fully. . Consequently, Father Chalet has drawn up a representative list of the cries from the heart "'hich People made in his pr~sence, and paired each ex­ ample with one of the Psalms. .The result is to show, often astonishingly, the Psalm's per­ tinence to the plaints and per­ plexities common - to people today, and thus to enable us to turn the water ·of our daily ut­ terance into the wine of prayer. The book has three divisions: "Cries of Distress," "The Voices of Trust," and "The Voices of Joy." There are almost 50 items among these categories. In the English translation, the version of the Psalms is in some in­ stanceS that of the Jerusalem Bible, in some that of the Knox Bible. School of Prayer Father Chalet's ingenious idea "'orks wonderlully. He urges people to tell God exactly how they feel. Tell your fear to God,' he says, tell your disgust; pour out your discouragement, call for help. And then" listen. For each of these moods, and others, he has a Psalm ,which could not. be more apt. Merely repeating it is a great help, be-' cause it makes one realize that one is_ not alone in one's plight. But besides that, there is the forceful expression of one's need to God, and the answering voice orGod, between the lines or in the silence after the Psalm. This book is a little school of prayer, easy and practical. It demonstrates the usefulness of an ancient, unaffected but highly' effective method which has never been surpassed, and needs only to be applied ill

If dialogue, implicit or ex­ plicit, is present 'throughout Cries from the Heart, it is large­ ly absent from Listen, Pilgrim ,by Christopher William Jones (Bruce, 400 N.

WASHINGTON (NC)-Medicaid started con Jan. I, 1966,and· . the states have- until Jan. 1, 1970, to qualify for participation. At roughly the half-way mark, 40 ,jurisdictions 37 states, Guam, Puerto Rico and the Vir-' gin Islands-have federally ap.proved Medicaid programs. Programs are in the final stages of preparation in South Carolina and the District of Columbia. In the cases of 12 other states none is expected to implement Medicaid in the near future. These states are Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Coloraoo, ,Florida, Indiana, Mississippi, New 'Jersey, North Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia. .States and jurisdictions which do not produce acceptable pro­

lose out, not only on Medicaid . but also on all federally aided medical assistance programs. Medicaid provides medical care to persons receiving public assistance and to certain other needy people. It is designed to bring medical services to chil­ dren and adults who need it most but cannot afford it. Generally, the largest group of individuals'to benefit from Medicaid are ~y cbildren,

maliy of whom have received

only emergency medical atten­ tion in the past. . BasIc. Services Legislation setting up Medic­ aid requires'that state. programs provide at least five basic serv" ices to the indigent as a begin­ ning for' participation in the plan. These basic services are doc­ tors services; in-patient and out­ patient hospital care, x-ray al)d' laboratory services outside hos­ pitals, and nursing care for adults. In practice, the great preponderance of states provide more than these basic services to indigents in their Medicaid programs. Under the law, the contribu­ tion . the federal government

Guatemala Mary.knollers Repudiate, Statements of Expelled Priests GUATEMALA CITY (NC)In a letter addressed to their oommunity's superior general, aU 102 Maryknoll missionaries here repudiated public statements made by Maryknoll Fathers Blase Bonpane, Thomas Melville and Arthur Melville concerning the need for revolut:ion in this country. Emphasizing Maryknoll's apolitical role in Guatemala the letter to Father John J.' McCormack, M.M., said: "Statements given to the United States press by priests of this society who were recentIy expelled from Guatemala have tried to gain stature for their very personal 'Christian witness' and have cornered front pages of the press around the world. "We want to make clearly known that those statements reilect no more than their own very personal points of view, which from no standpoint can be assumed to promote the official opinion of the Maryknoll society. "The erroneous opinions as. well as the thinking adopted by Thomas and Arthur Melville by the ex-Sister Marian Peter 'and Blase Bonpane, are completely foreign to the Mljryknoll community in Guatemala since they, against our norms, took active part in the internal affairs of the country:" lnvol~ed in .

Controversy over the Fathers Melville, brothers from Newton, Mass., over Father Bonpane and over Sister Marian Peter Brad­ ford erupted aiter their coop­ e.ratio~ with Guatemala revolu­ ttonaries became known. Or­ dered to return to Maryknoll headquarters in New York, only Father Bonpane showed up. As a result the MelvilIes were suspended from the priesthood. Soon after, Sister Marian Peter married Father Thomas Melville incurring automatic excommunication for both. The thr~e Melvilles h~ve continued theIr pro-revolutionary work from Mexico while publishing several. articles and statemen~.s defendIng their activities here. Father Bonpane, assigned to a missionary post in Hawaii, re­ ported to Hawaii and then re­ turned to the U.

Sommer, M.M., newly appointed director of so­ cial communications for Mary­ knoll in Bolivia, said that con­ struction of the station and erection of a transmitting tower are expected to begin soon. Radio San Miguel will join two other Maryknoll radio schools in Bolivia-Radio San Rafael in Cochabamba, which broadcasts in Spanish and in the Indian language, Quechua, and Radio San Gabriel, located outside of La Paz, which broad­ casts in Asmara, another Indian language, ~s well as in Spanish.

Riberalta is a small (pop. 12,000) and important town carved out of the Pando jungle -the "green hell" of Bolivia­ on the muddy Beni, not far dis­ tant from Bolivia's border with Brazil. Daily Lessons First established over 10 yean ago, Maryknoll's radio schools are an integral part of Bolivia'li educational technique today ­ especially in areas where up­ wards of two-thirds of Ute people are illiterate. From the broadcast centers, lessons are beamed daily to 130 school centers on the altiplano, or high tableland, and in the Cochabamba valley area. The principal task is to teach the Aymara-and Quechua-speak­ ing Indians, who make up about 60 per cent of Bolivia's popula­ tion, to speak, read, and write Spanish, the national language: In addition, history, arithme­ tic, geography, agriculture, hygiene and religion are taught. "What 'we are doing," said Father Sommer, "is attempting to incorporate the Indians into the' civilization of the country by improving their living condi­ tions and providing them with the necessary educational and moral training."

Mission

Some Post-Conciliar Thoughts In 1958, Cardinal Roncalli, a man imknown to the world at large, became Pope John XXIII. He was an old man when elected to the Chair of Peter. Many surmized that he was chosen because he would not live long. It was hoped that the church could have a short breathing space to reassess the problems facing her and plan accordingly. for the remaining years of this century. Pope John did 00't live long. As for a breathing space, the church has scarcely had time to keep pace with the changes. The last ten years have witnessed more developments than the preceding four hundred. Yet withal, it is the same church. \-

-

I

Christ entrusted his gifts of truth and life to Peter and the Apostles with the solemn injunction to bring them to all men. That command can never change. Admittedly though some developments have caused traumas. Many _Catholics have wavered in their allegiance to what they considered -a changeless institution. Actually; the revolu­ tion, or more acurately, evolution, in the church has been made possible by the forty years which preceeded Pope John.

Understandably, the rank and file 'of the faithful are at times puzzled and pained with the activities going on within. the staid institution which is the Church. Every­ one kneW that sooner or later some change 'had 'to take place. The Church had to come to task with the gripping problems of a post war world. The thing that shocked was how fast and furiously the changes came. Ten years ago, who knew or even cared about ecumenism? Who oould envision that within the space of a few short years, the Latin of the Mass would b~ replaced by a breezy and somewhat oommon vernacular? Today one reads; as never before,. of priests leaying their calling and asking -to be reduced to the lay state, some

even leaving the Church. Nuns picket with the ease with which they formally joined the line into chapel for night prayers. Priests and sisters march with negroes in Ala­ bama and Detroit. Seminarians, our future priests, picket Cardinals, refuse to attend daily Mass, attend classes at will, and generally decry the state of the Church they hope one day to serve. There is a crisis of faith among the young people. And over all hangs the immensely oompli­ cated problem of contraception. These are difficult times. .

.

Perhaps, though, it is time for all of us to draw some lines and take in the slack on the barque of Peter. Things are not as bad as they se·em. In all this apparent upheaval, 'we cannot fail to note that .the Church is still very much alive and vibrant. In all the talk about liberals and con­ servatives, as if such a dichotomy never existed, -we must advert to our common radical beliefs- the Trinity, In-· carnation, Redemption, the Mass, sanctifying grace:-These are still with us and always will be. They.are an essential part of our Catholic life. Pope John called the Vatican Council to let in some fresh air. Metaphorically the results have been more in the nature of a tornado. More changes and unrest will continue to be the norm for the time being. Eventually, the storm will clear. Much thinking and reevaluation will have to be done, painful though it may be. There can however, be only one final and ultimate result-victory for the Church .of God. No other conclusion is possible. Christ himself has given us the proof-I am with you all days, even until the end of tl}e world. .

.Sect's, Statement Seen Favorable To C~ristianity,. TOKYO (NC) - A leader of Sokagakkai, Japan's mili­ tant Buddhist sect, has is­ sued a s·tatement surprisi.ng­

ly favorable to Christiimity. At a' press conference here, Yo s h i k a tu T a k'e i i-i the chairman of Komeito, or the Clean Government party, the political arm of Sokagakkai, said: "Sokagakkai expresses its deepest respect for both Cathol­ icism's and Protestantism's ef­ forts for peace." Sokagakkai, or Value Creat­ ing Society, which claims a membership of over five million households, has been considered as the main threat to Christian­ ity in this country because it has officially .sponsored the elimi­ nation' of all Christian influ­ -ences from Japan.

Sokagakkai, which has called Christianity and communism Japan's greatest enemies, claims it is based on a 13th-century Buddhist sect founded by Nichi­ ren Daishonin (1222-1282), who denounced all other forms of Buddhism as false and danger­ ous to Japan and called for a Buddhist government. Similarly, "Shakufuku Scrip­ ture," as the official handbook of Sokagakkai, condemns all other religions as false and superstitious and demand~ that organization members oppose them.. Condones Violence

The sect has used threats and blackmail to oppose rival reli­ gions and to increase its own power, although its leaders have called any criticism of Sokagak­ Rev. John F.Moore, St. Joseph's, Taunton kai "persecution." It has con-' B,A., M.Hist., M.Ed. doned violence.

l~l BATTLE FOR BEAUTY

"You're fortunate to have been born women in the latter part of the twentieth century," I told a group of teenage girls to whom I talked recently, "be-' cause never has it been so easy to stay youthful and attractive'" The statement couldn't have been truer, for just a glance at the millions of cosmetic ads will verify the fact that' chem­ istry is on our side and the battle to stay beautiful is be­ ing won, or at least advanced. Just within the past few months, for instance, a new form of hair removal has appeared. It's a scientifically developed proce­ dure that when administered by a. trained operator (in a. beauty salon) claims to help re­ move superfluous ha~r for a longer period than any other pre_us cosmetic methods. The originators of this new' method vow that after a num­ ber of monthly visits to a beauty salon that gives this treatment that woman who has lived with this embarrassment for years will find relief. -A combination of ingredients' are used in the treatment and the results that I viewed on two beauticians that­ had .had t~is done at the recent Boston Cosmetologist show were certainly remarkable. Another new cosmetic to ap-' pear on the market this month

..is a see-through lipstick' that

stains the lips· with color rather than heavily coating ftlem. I tried one of the deeper colors­

for Spring, "cocoa-berry," but found it a little too pale for my taste. Ho~ever, it's perfect for the woman who wants just a tint of color on her mouth. Hair innovations are not ne­ glected this Spring and with curls appearing on heads all over the country you can even purchase separate ones to make sure you end up with that Shir­ ley Temple look. These individ­ ual curls can be bought for as . little as $1.50 and they certainly do look quite fetching when properly arranged in a romantic evening' hai,rdo. The woman of '68 has no ex':' cuse other than laziness for not keeping up her appearance: Re­ ducing salons and body toning centers are springing up like mushrooms' all over the nation. The beauty business (including hair salons) is doing a million dollar and more business each year, the cosmetic industry is

constantly searching 'for new·

and better ways to pre~erve a . wbman's youth and beauty-the rest· is up to you. .

Submit Hospital Dispute to Cou rt NEWARK (NC)-5t. Michael's Hospital Center and some 330 striking maintenance and ser­ vice personnel have agreed to submit their dispute to the Chan­ cery Division of the Superior Court of Essex County. Attorneys for both sides will petition the court for a legal determination of whether the union-Local 1199, Drug and Hospital Workers, AFL-CIO­ should represent the employes on the basis of a card count alone, or whether an election, which the hospital has demand­ ed,' is necessary. Hospital officals have refused to recognize the labor group un­ less a secret ballot election is held. The union claims it is supported by 80 per c~nt of the workers but has refused to have an election because it claims the hospital recognized another union without an elec­ tion.

·Decrease in Vocations, Closes Two Houses" CLEVELAND (NC) - Two houses of the Oblates of Mary Immaculate, a secular institute of lay women, have been closed here. Msgr. Francis A. Karwoski, di­ ocesan vicar for Religious, said the recent "loss in vocations and small number of prospective candidates" made it economical­ ly not feasible to continue the the operation. A few of the women, who take vows of poverty, chastity and obedience but work at regular jobs will remain in Cleveland as "externs," residing separately.

VATICAN, CITY (NC)-~he Holy See' has closed down' the press service~of'the ,Vatican, City daily, which hall supplied , tb~ bulk 'of Vatican news for the past three decades and has merged it with a separate office that grew out of an official pre~s service created for the Second Vatican Council.

In Putt$!b>lIJIrgh PITTSBURGH (NC)-The Association of Pittsburgh p'riests plans to buy and re­ habilitate s'om~ houses for

I

leasing to the poor as' a way of demonstrating what small groups with little capital can do about housing problems. Furthering integration is part of the plan. Houses will be pur­ chased in "stable neighborhoods and le'ased "ordinarily" to low­ income Negro familfes. None will be bought in black ghettoes.' ...'Fathe; Garrett Dorsey, chair:" man of the committee whil;h ­ will direCt the project, said members' have pledged' more than $10;OQC to get things mov­ ing. The association will incor­ porate as a non-profit organiza­ tion to carry out the program. The idea is to make use of the Pittsburgh Housing Authority's, leased housing program. &ig,n of Conc~rn ",'A house ~ill be bought ,on the wen' market and rehabilitated; then mortgage and repair costs Will, be 'paid off by leasing the howleto,the housing authority. The authority in turn will sub­ lease, it to a low-income family, usually ,one eligible for rent subsidy from the government. Father Dorsey hazarded a guess that the association might buy five houses the first year -"but we won't really know how many until we get 'into it." Besides demonstrating that groups with small aI~ounts ~f capital can do somethIng pOSI­ tive about housing the poor, the project will be a symbol of the priests' interest in the poor, ,he pointed' out. - "As priests, we shouldn't be i.n the housing business but thIS will be a sign of our concern,", he 'declared. , To find families for the hous­ ing the priests will call on ho~sing-oriented agencies and ~eighborhood groups. The asso­ 'dation is composed of over 80 ~ocal priests, most of them dioc~san clergymen.

Apostolic Delegate Fili1dsTravel EssentoQ,1

WASHINGTON (NC)-Travel, whether it be across the city or across the' country, is a top, es­ sential in the' duties of the Apostolic Delegate in the United States. ' ' , That's the view of Archbishop Luigi Raimondi, currently, Pope Paul VI's personal representa'; tive in -this country. Just re­ turned :f.rom., plane· trips to California and Alaska, where he officated at consecrations of bishops, the archbishop turned his attention to his 'first official visit to Baltimore, just 40 miles from the nation's cap­ ital. He views his travels in line with his duty ·to represent the Pope in his universal ministry. "The work of an Apostolic Delegate is by no means pure-" ly administrative," Archbishop Raimondi said in discussing his visits to many parts of, the coun­ try since his'" appointment by Pope Paul on June 30, 1967. During the previous 10 years he was Apostolic Delegate in Mex­ ico.

; BONN'(NC)-Stefa~ Cardinal Wyszynski of Warsaw has an­ nounced the Polish bi$ops' des­ ignation of the year-long· period from M;ly, 1968, to May, 1969, as the "Year of the Church in Ped!." Each'month of the observance ,will be devoted to a special peril facing the Church. The months of 1968, beginning with May's "defense 'of the menaced Virgin," will be devoted to "de­ fense of the faith· menaced by atheism," "defense of the nation menaced 'by deliberately planned demoralization," "defense of the nation menaced by hatred," to "the Mother of the Church," to "the work of the bishops in de­ fense of the Church's liberty," and other 'themes. 1969's themes will include: "defense of the nation menaced by secularization," "defense of Extensive Communication the 'young menaced by modern pagan,ism," and "defense of the During an interview' in a nation menaced by alcoholism," second floor reception room Other observances ordered by of the apostolic delegation, a and solid structure the cardinal have been planned large , to mQbllize the forces of the on Massachusetts Avenue's "em­ 'Chureh before' and after the bassy rQw" in the capital, the meeting of the Communist party soft-spoken prelate acknowl': in Poland and to reaffirm the ,edged long hours at his desk. position of the Church regard­ '!'Ilhe office of the Apostolic ing the dialogue between social­ Delegate has a great deal, of ist countries and the nations of correspondence with bishops ,the West. and with organizations, with

said.

"But," he added, ,raising both hands in a relaxed gesture, "I also have been visiting exten­ sively for the purpose of the

consecration of bishops, their

been in the diplomatic service of the Holy· See since 1938.

"The 'life of the Church to­

plied, "is oriented toward the

"Problems do not have easy

Bishop Approves Greater Voice For Lay"'e".·

Agency Assigns

Sisters to Hue

.LANSING·' {NO)-Aser­

res of proposals that give lay­ men a greaJter' voice in par­ i9h and dioceSlan affairs was endorsed by Bishop Alexander lVI. Zaleski of Lansing. At an unprecedented dio­ cesan renewal congress attend­ ed by some 5,000 persons, five main recommendations came out of a two-month home dis­ cussion program conducted in the 115 parishes and missions in the 15-county diocese. They were presented to the bishop at the congress in the Lansing Civic' Center, climax­ ing detailed study by the lay­ men on the Vatican Council II decree on the apostolate of the laity. The laymen's proposals included: .Establishing by .June 1, 1968, parish councilfl in each parish and mission in the 246,OOO-mem­ bel' diocese. The councils would be a means of employing the special skills of parishioners as well as serv1ng as a more ef­ fective instrument of parish re­ newal. .' . Establishment of a diocesan council composed of clergy, Re­ ligious and laity to aid the bish­ op in promoting mutual coor­ dination of various 'associations and enterprises in· the diocese. Included would be· broad com­ munication lines wi,th parishes to disseminate information from the diocese to parish level. Youth Commission Establishment of a diocesa"n youth commission which would transmit information to adults so they could better assist youth in their moral and intellectual development. Encouragement of the Dio­ cesan Office of Social and Com­ munity Service in its search for programs of social action and for sources of funds to resolve the problems of open housing and poverty. Creation of a diocesan com­ mission for the lay apostolate. It would communicate informa­ tion concerning the various apo­ stolic programs of the laity and assist clergy and laity in their apostolic endeavors.

Rector to Evaluate . Seminary Changes DARLINGTON (NC) - The new rector of Immaculate Con­ ception seminary here in New Jersey, Msgr. William F. Hogan, said he will be more immediate­ ly concerned with an evaluation of changes already made in the seminarians' training program than with making more changes. "We have some plans on the fire, but I'd say' they are pretty !far back on the fire right now," Msgr. Hogan explained, adding: "We've had some pretty radical changes in the last few years and we are now in the process of evaluating them." : Changes have included a de­ crease in seminary rules, expan­ sion of apostolic activities, and a new program of spiritual ex­ ercises involving a new pedago­ gical approach. The seminary supplies both the Paterson dio­ cese and the Newark archdio­ cese with most of their clerical manpower.

PHILADELPHIA (NC)-Thir­ ty-five high school students staged a weekend ";live in" at suburban St. Charles Borromeo Seminary. It was an invitation affair, .rated productive and gave the volunteers an insight in what it's like to be a seminarian and a priest. The "live in" was arranged through a seminary program in which last year parish priest moderators learned more than 200 high school students were interested in vocations to the priesthood. It brought together students who had been corresponding with seminarians in the theol­ ogy department of the seminary. By invitation from the semi­ narians .the high schoolers ar­ rived on a Friday evening to stay until Sunday afternoon. Authentic Experience . They participated in a typical seminary schedule, including common prayer, classes and a concelebrated Mass in which they joined the seminarians in receiving Holy Communion un­

Loses $50 000 ,1

KANSAS CITY (NC) - The New People, newspaper of the Kansas C~ty-St. Joseph diocese, in an effort to increase circula­ tion, reported to its readers it had lost over $50,000 last year.

Income from "a little more than 10,000 subscriptions totaled $41,850. Advertising brought in $37,000, and m i see 11 a n eo u S sources, about $2,650, for a total income of $81,500. Expenses last year tota~ed $132,700. These included $39,295 for printing, production and mailing; $11,000 for circulation and promotion; $39,400 for edi­ torial salaries, art work, photos, news services, features and col­ umnists; $38,000 for advertising, administration and rent. Before the paper changed from

000, the paper said. Msgr. Richard J. Schumacher, president, said the figures "give an idea of what it costs to pub­ lish our newspaper. I,t is obvi­ ous that under the old system Otf forced subscdptions, it was much easier to balance the bud­ get.

Msgr. Thompson called the program a "total success." Both. seminarians and visi­ to~ he commented, reacted with complete enthusiasm.

President Denoul1lces Gregory's 'Tactics, ' Language' SAN ANTONIO (NC) - The president of st. Ma,ry's Uni­ versity here has denounced the '6fJactics and language" used by Negro comed.ian Dick Greg()ry when he spoke on ci viI lIights to a group of students. 'Father Louis J. Blume, S.M., said Gregory "abused his privi­ lege as a guest of the university and I deeply regret his breach of good taste and judgment." Father Blume called a Pl'ess conference after Gregory's ap­ pearance triggered a wave of criticism directed at the uni­ versity. One local daily paper speculated that as a resuIt of the comedian's appearance many contributors were withdrawing their support f,rom St. Mary's. Father Blume said he "didn't have any information" about the loss of income, and he denied that civil rights was an issue in his denuncation of Gregory. After hearing a tape of the comedian's 2lh-hour speech, Fa­ ther Blume said he was "greatly shocked by both the content and the language of his presentation. Abused Privilege '''His villification of our Amer­ ican system, our P.resident and our flag I found partciularly ob­ jectionable. Mr. Gregory abused his privilege as a guest of this university and I deeply resent his breach of good taste and judgment. ' "The right of free speech has never been construed as a lJ­ eense to use foul language or to make, ind,iscriminate a,ttacks on such highly regarded institutions and personages as the flag Of our country and our' chief ex­ ecutive." During his talk, Gregory aim­ ed several jokes-:Some off-color

-at President Lyndon B. John­ son. But most of the reaction to the speech was' directed at his comments on the flag: "'I'he American flag is nothing but a rag, I don't care how patriotic you are, a flag is a rag," he said. "I'm not interested in rags-' I'm interested in people and in the day we can respect one an­ other as human beings. On that day we can salute one another as humans, that's the day that our rag will be safe." Insulting Statements Among his other comments: "This is what you young kids are going to have to do. You are going to have to build an America that ;you won't be ashamed of-an America you don't have to worry about." "Basically, Mack folks 'don't hate white folks. We hate your stinking system. That's 'what we're going to change. When' men hate a system-that's revo­ lution." The No. 1 problem of America is "not air pollution--it's moral. pollution." America is the "No. 1 1"3cist country in the world, including South Africa because South Af­ J'lica doesn't have a ,constitution pretending all men lire created equal." Of the debate over fair hous­ ing bills: "We are sick and tired of yourinsuIts, telling us, i!f we behave ourselves" we can live next door to you. These insults' are what we are upset about." Father Blume said the major­ ity of St. Mary's 9tudents ­ whom he described as conserva­ tive and responsiI)](l-"rejected the many abus-ive and insul~ing, statements."

PHILADELPHIA (NC)-"We have no intention of striking but of cooperating," James E. McGrath, president of Philadel~ phia's Association of Catholic Teachers said in the wake of an electi~n among all lay teach­ ers in the 32 diocesan and pa­ rochial high schools of the Phil­ adelphia archdiocese. A 470-202 vote gave sole and exclusive bargaining rights· to ACT as the representative of the lay teachers in the archdi­ ocesan secondary school system. McGrath asserted: "We need a cooperative dialogue more than we need a union-manage­ ment relationship," addin~ tI'Jat his group would meet with archdiocesan school officials to continue contract talks for the 683 teachers in the Catholic secondary school system. The archdiocesan high schools are also staffed by 1,450 priests, Sisters and Brothers. McGrath said his group will seek a union shop, a require­ ment that all lay teachers in archdiocesan high schools join ACT, Local 1776 of the Amer­ ican Federation of Teachers, AFL-CIO, but added ACT prob­ ably would settle for an agency shop, in which all lay teachers would be assessed to compen­ sate the union as their bargain­ ing representative. Commenting on the ele.;tion, Msgr. Edward T. Hughes, archdiocesan superintendent of schools, said: "We look forw;ud to a fruitful and cooperative re­ lationship among our school administrators, our Religious teachers and· the lay teachers whom the association now rep­ resents."

Claims Dr. Ayd' held liberalized abortion laws have not achieved the objectives claimed by th~ir sponsors. , He asked: "What is the differ­ ence between abortion and .fetuscide? -The term 'abortion' euphemistically avoids what Is actually done; namely; removal of the fetlis before it 'can sur­ vive - 'mercy killing' of the fetus. . "If fetuscide is carried out for the preventing of defect would not infanticide be' a logical . and medically preferred conse­ quence? Errors in prenatal diag­ nosis, dangers to the mother, and sacrifice of normal fetuses would be avoided," he said. Super Race Dr. Ayd held: "I deem it im­ perative to stress that no dis­ cussion of the movement to lib­ eralize abortion laws would be .complete without. calling atten­ tion to the fact that is a part of an overall plan. to produce a super race of men." The nazi theme recurred throughout the testimony heard by the commission headed by Charles W. Froessel, former As­ sociate Judge of the New York' State Court of Appeals. . Charles Rice, professor of constitutional law at Fordham' University law school said the' philosophy underlying the re­ form legislation "is the philoso-, phy that motivated the nazi re­ gime in Germany. If you pass this law, you are saying that a human being can be killed be­ cause he is inconvenient or un­ comfortable to others."

PARIS (NC) - The French Bishops' Commission on the Family has criticized Catholic authors who "allow themselves to settle the question (of birth control) authoritatively by an­ ticipating the teaching of the Pope." . In a pastoral note entitled "The Mission of Husbands and Wives," the commission con­ ceded that for some couples there are tragic situations," and went on to say that for this rea­ son "the decision of the Pope is anxiously awaited." It pointed out that the Pope "has reserved to himself the right to give cer­ tain detailed information for the enlightenment of consciences." Taking note of a law legal­ Izing birth controi which 'the French parliament approved last December, the bishops wrote that "it is normal, that civil leg­ islation according. to the compe­ tence of the state occupy Itself with the problems of married life • • • But the problem is also of the moral and religious order.

He told the commission he was at the University of Berlin dur­ ing the Hitler period, an officer of the U.S, Military Government '. in Germany from 1947-49 and an observer at the trial of nazi doctors in Nuremberg. Citing medical experts who hold "life begins at conception," he said: "I am deeply troubled by the proponents of 'liberali­ .zation' who on one hand deny this and on the other hand in­ Gist that it would be wrong to \Perform an abortion after the 20th week of pregnancy.

Laity Undertake New Approach To Housing

Spanish Fiesta at Sacred Hearts Academy To Spotlight Tots, Teens, Alumnae

WASHINGTON (NC) At a time when low-income housing projects are under criticism as unrealistic and

An effervescent Puerto Rican Sister who "can't keep my feet sWI when I hear music" is responsible for a Spanish Fiesta at Sacred Hearts Academy, Fall River to be held at 8 Sunday night, March 24. A sparkling introduction to Spanish culture, song and dance has been planned by Sister Carmen Joseph, S.U.S.C., 25 years a Holy Union religious this month and as young at heart as a j ust-en­ tered postulant. The program is unique in that it will take

calloused in recognizing the true needs of the poor, a group of laymen here has undertaken a project that answers both the need and the criticism. The project, known as Sursum Corda, has been two and one­ half years in the planning stage. It will be completed by the Summer of 1969 on 5% acres of h.nd a dozen blocks from the U. S. Capitol building. Among the criticisms leveled at other low income housing is that the poor have no say in what the type and character of the dwellings will be. Sursum Corda, Inc., a non­ profit corporation dedicated to providing decent homes for families displaced by urban re­ newal, foresaw this need and met regularly with the people of the neighborhood. The archi­ tect showed them his plans for comment and change. Critics also say that low in­ come housing is too unimagina­ tive and stereotyped. But Sur­ sum Corda will not be the high­ rise telephone booths generally associated with inner city urban renewal. Modern Conveniences For the most part, the 199 dwellings will be multi-roomed town housp.s in the center of the inner city. They will have the modern conveniences found iIi higher-ref.lt areas - air condi­ tioning, patios and washer­ dryers. The tenants will also have access to luxuries not readily available to the average apartment dweller trees, grassy areas, shaded walks and their own park. Sursum Corda will give first priority to families displaced from the area by urban renewal. Applications have already been accepted from 170 such fam­ ilies. Sursum Corda workers have put in thousands of hours in meetings, received no pay and met expenses from their own pockets. But they profited from the mistakes of others, their own dedication and professional maturity, and cooperation from government agencies, local and federal. The public housing leasing program will allow families to live in Sursum Corda town houses without paying more than 25 per cent of their month­ ly income for rent. The rent subsidies program is designed to allow families eli­ gible for public housing to live in moderate income housing. This is the first time that both programs have been allowed for a single project. None of the tenants will know if another is receiving federal aid. ' The project will have an esti­ mated 1,143 tenants, of whom about 715 will be children under

16.' Each unit of two bedrooms will be equipped with a refrig­ erator, kitchen range, garbage disposal and washer-dryer. Washer-dryers for tenants of one-bedroom apartments' will be provided for use without charge in the proposed Com­ munity Building.

in every section of the academy's educational program. Tots"from the Holy Union pre-school group will present a Mexican hat dance, the new junior high school division will be repre­ sented, the high school Spanish Club and Spanish classes will be responsible for a major part of the show, and climaxing the program, alumnae will return to their alma mater t.o offer a Stephen Foster selection, Span­ ish style. Not content with staging this ambitious production, Sister Carmen Joseph has made 90 costumes for participants and twined 800 artificial roses for a gala patio scene. "I do things very fast," said she, in explain­ ing how she's been able to make all these preparations in addi­ tion to handling her normal teaching load of five Spanish classes daily and aiding in in­ firmary duties in the Holy Union convent. "I've always been this way," she added. "My mother used to say that St. Peter will send me

back when I get to heayen­ he'll say I came too fast." Born in Puerto Rico, Sist.er Carmen Joseph came in contact with the Holy Union community as a young aide at the National Catholic Welfare Conference' headquar(ers in Washington. She SaYS she didn't mind the' change from Puerto Rican warmth to Massachusetts chill when she \. entered the Fall River noviti­ ate of the Sisters. Attract Alumnae She taught a' Sacred Hearts Academy as a young Sister, then at the Nanaquaket Prep School maintained at that time by the community. In 1948 she went to Buenos Aires, Argentina, where she taught for 12 years in a Holy Union high school. Since her return to the United States in 1960 she has been at Sacred Hearts. Sister Carmen Joseph says'

she picked up mimy of the dances and songs that will be

seen March 24 during her years in Argentina. Others were learned during Summer courses and by watching Spanish dance' programs. "I really have music in me," she said. "I think I inherited it from my father." She sighed as she commented that sometimes she watches teen dances at SHA. "There are couples actually sit-

Approves Priests' Retirement Plan OAKLAND (NC) - Bishop Floyd L. Begin of Oakland has approved a retirement program for diocesan priests which calls for optional retirement at 65 and compulsory retirement at 70. Bishop Begin approved the plan in a letter to Father A. J. Quinan, president of the dio­ cesan priests' senate, which had made the retirement proposal. The California prelate asked the priests' senate to research and develop details of the pro­ gram. He agreed with the senate that "there is need for a definite retirement· age, both optional and compulsory, so that a priest can look forward and prepare ,for his retirement, and in order that a just and equitable policy be set up which will adequately support him."

Detroit University Boycan Cancelled DETROIT (NC)-A threatened boycott of classes at the Uni­ versity of Detroit has been can­ celled by' students leaders. Father Malcolm Carron, S.J., president of the university, agreed to establishment· of a joint student, faculty and ad­ ministration board to work for quality education. The boycott was planned to demonstrate support, for 23 de­ mands presented to Father Car­ ron by a group of student lead­ ers. Most 'demands focused on greater 'student participation in academic affairs. A short demonstration and teach-in took place earlier in an effort the student leaders de­ scribed as' a bid "to make the educational quality of the uni­ versity more reflective of the price we are paying."

WASHINGTON (NC) - Al­ though the prim'ary purpose of Passion plays is "to stimulate religious fervor," when care­ lessly written or produced they may become a source of anti­ Semitism, according to a state­ ment issued here. The statement, signed by six· members of the executive com­ mittee of the Secretariat for Catholic-Jewish Relations of the U. S. Bishops' Committee for Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs, said that such anti­ Semitism is "foreign and inju­ rious to true Christian piety and to the intent of Sacred Scrip­ tures, as well as offensive to our Jewish brothers." Those signing the statement were Father Edward H. Flan­ nery, executive secretary of the secretariat; Msgr. George G. Higgins; Msgr. John M. Oester­ reicher; Father John B. Sheerin, C.S.P.;Sister Katharine Har­ grove, R.S.C.J.; and Father Ber­ nard F. Law director of the ecu­ menical and interreligious af­ fairs committee. The statement said that sim­ plistic and erroneous intel'pre­ tatiol1s of Scripture have "occa­ sioned the accusation that the Jewish people of all time bear the unique responsibility for the death of Jeslus."

The statement added that its remarks, while primarily di­ rected at plays which depict the Passion of Christ and which are popular during Lent, are "equal­ ly applicable to sermons and teachings on the Passion of Christ." The Second Vatican Council documents clearly state that Christ underwent His Passion and death freely because of the sins of 'men, the statement said, and urged that all persons in the Church remember that the Jews should not "be presented as rejected or accursed .by God as i£ this followed from the Holy Scriptures."

Plan Ecumenical Housing Project: In Kentucky

Teachers Return

To Classrooms

. COVINGTON (NO) Eight Covington ehurches have furmed a non-profit housing organization, their first ecumenical project. The Northern Kentucky So­ ciety for Better Housing, which includes Catholic, Lutheran, Episcopal and United Church of Christ parishes, will build a complex of townhouses and gar­ den apartments in Covington for low and moderate income :fIamilies. The development, known as Prospect Heights, has" been approved by the Federal Housing Administration for rent supplement. Father Ralph Hartman, editor of the Messenger, Covington diocesan newspaper, and Pastor Richard Giessler of Zion Evan­ gelical Lutheran Church, are co­ chairmen of the ecumenical or". ganization. Note Advantages Father Hartman explained that initiative for economic im­ provement is built into the pro­ gram because a family that is able to increase its annual in­ come is not penalized by being forced to move, as is the case with public housing. A resident of Prospect Heights with increased income would have his rent supplement either diminished or discontinued but could continue to live at the project. Pastor Giessler explained that the housing organization has been initially approved for a 100 per cent federally guaran­ teed loan from private sources and has been allocated nearly $150,000 per year in rent sup­ plement support by FHA.

Dutch Prelates Issue Pastoral UTRECHT (NC) - 'n their Lenten paswral, "Renewal and Confusion," the Dutch bishops urge Catholics not ro "increase the confusion by renovations that are not sufficiently well founded or by experiments that are not based on a sound phil­ osophy. "But," they, added, "beware of any hasty condemnation of those people who are honestly seeking modern ways of expres­ sion." "Every adult has the duty constantly to remain critical and" Dot to take his beliefs for granted," they said. "No society will eternally remain un­ changed. Everywhere there is change and man feels the urge to open new doors. The house of the Church must be "remod­ eled. Many people now consider this house uninhabitable. "It is unfair if we consider the authorities of the OhW'oo as the only ones responsible for the mistakes that are being made inside and by the Church. The whole Christian community fails in its tasks. "If renewal is inevitable and confusion inevitable, we must maintain our faith in the invis­ ible God. To believe is to re­ main faithful w God, to" trust that He is with us, as He was with the Jewish people that crossed the desert."

Washington Laymen Want Fiscal Report WASHINGTON (HC) - The Washington Lay Association has asked Patrick Cardinal O'Boyle of Washigton for an annual pub­ lic accounting cd archdiocesan expenditures and the issuing cd a proposed budget for 1he fol­ lowing year.

CLEVELAND (NC)-Teacoors

and diocesan officials agreed to

continue salary negotiations here

after a one-day "study day"

closed eight high schools in the

Cleveland diocese. Normal class­

room schedules were resumed.

Some 8,000 students got the

day off when classes at Cathe­

d'NII Latin, Chanel, Padua, St.

Angustine, St. Joseph and By­

zantine Catholic high schools

here and Archbishop Hoban and

St. Mary's in Akron were sus­

pended. The day off will have

to be made up by the students,

diocesan officials said.

The walkout, first in the his­

tory of the diocese, was called

by CHALTA-Cleveland High

ers Association, which claims to

represent 309 of the 524 lay

teachers in 38 high schools of

the eight-county diocese. Two hundred and eighty-nine teachers, inClUding 36 members of religious orders, at.tended a professional study day protest­ ing a rejection by the diocesan school board of salary demands. James Simonis, CHALTA sec­ cretary, said telegrams of in­ vitation to the study day were sent to Bishop Clarence G. Is. scomann of Cleveland; Auxil­ iary Bishop Cklrence E. Elwell, episcopal vicar for education; Msgr. Richard E. McHale, dio­ cesan school superintendent, and two other priest-members of the school board. Only Msgr.

Panama '·Churc'h "Authori~es Ban Priest's Candidacy for Assembly COLON (NC) Catholic Church authorities in' Panama have re~used to authorize a coiltroversial priest to' run for' the national assembly in the elec:, tions to be held May 12. The Catholic Bishops' Confer-, ence of, Panama, meeting here, disapproved the announced bid of Father Perez Herrera to run as a candidate of ,the opposition Panamaista party 1n the forth­ coming elections. One of the resolutions adopted 'at the conclusion of the bishops' meeting stated that the Church in Papama "after careful c'on­ 'sideration of canon law and the special situation in Panama where the Church, in the per,fion of her ministers, has always' remained outside of politics and respected the national constitu­ tion, forbids its clergy to opt for electoral public posts." The sta'tement said the Church "has not approved and does not approve of~any priest not re­ duced'to the lay state present­ ing himself for a public elec­ toral post." The Panamaistas have already, named Father Perez as their candidate from Santiago de Veraguas, an interior city where Father Perei was reared. Father Perez, in a'recent in­ terview; said he foresaw little difficulty in getting Church au­ thorization, . citing priests who had' been elected. in other' coun­ tries. Connietine 'OpiniollS' However,' his candidacy alsO pOsed a' question' of a' civil na­ ture. There are' conflicting opin­ ioils here as to the constitution": amy of Father Perez' 'running for elective office... The con­ stitution provides that' {'minIs­ "ters of religious cults cannot , hold public office, civil or mili­ tary. except those relating to social assistance or public teach­ ing." Some observers believe it possible that Father Perez' can­ didacy would be ruled 'constitu­ tional by the electoral tribunal on the grounds that the proviso did not apply to elective office. Father Perez has been widely known for more than 15 years for his militant views on social ,problems and has been a center of controversy from time ,to time because of statements regarded as at lea'st extremely liberal.

In February, '1966, he praised Camilo Torres, Colombian priest who was killed fighting with guerrillas in' Bolivia. Father Perez was ,press secretary' for the Panama archdiocese and pastor of a parish in Panama City. In Militant Meeting Shortly after his statement on Torres he was removed from his archdiocesan post and pa'rish and later taught French and Latin in ,a downtown Panama City high school. Father Perez' present where­ abouts are, unknoWn. Bishop Mark G. McGrath, C.S.C., said he did not know where the priest was except "somewllere in the interior." Father Perez recently caused more reaction with his active role in a militant Jan:' 30 meet­ ing in Panama on Pope Paul's encyclical, The Development of Peoples. ­ Communist and leftists groups were well represented at the meeting which had pronounced anti-imperialist overtones and included much discussion of violence as an ,institutional tool' wielded by the oligarchy and those ,controlling power.

The report was the first phase of a two-part study undertaken by a special committee for the Newark Priests' Group, an asso­ ciationof the city's clergy. It contained some general recom­ mendations for Church involve­ ment, but more specific sugges­ tions are due when the ' second part of the study is completed: That portion of the study is to be a detailed examination -of Church resources, the resoUrces of Church institutions, and how these can be applied to the 'Urges Restriction problems pinpointed'in the first part of the report. , ~ On Farm Workers , The committee cited the Sec­ BROWNSVILLE (NC)-The ond Vatican ,Council's Constitu­ '"7 U.S. governmen4; should restrict tion on the Church' as the basis the employment of'Mexican citi­ for its proposals for Church in­ zens by American industry and volvement.

' , In' the' statement', the South Korean . Bish0p.s" Gonference also' criticized the anti-union activities of the' silk manufac­ turers and said that improving the conditions of workers is "demanded by economic prog­ ress" and is a condition for "final victory over communism." After the YCW had organized the 'union of silkworkers the manufacturers fired the union leaders, and several YCW mem­ bers were arrested when they held a meeting' to protest the dismissals. The silk manufacturers then refused to hire any members of the YCW. The area's deputy in parliament and the police com­ missioner threatened to prose­ cute' U. S. Maryknoll Father Michael J. Bransfield, pastor at Kang-Hoa and chaplain of the YCW, for pro-communist' agi­ tation. Father Bransfield was brought to the police station and told. to ask pardon for his activities.

Plenty of Competition for Champs The situation at Msgr. Coyle High in Taunton directly paral­ lels Feehan's plight. Coyle; the Bristol County track champions a year ago, also has a new coach in Paul Therrien llke Mac­ carrone, inherits a title winner. Therrien, who is also an as­ sistant football coach at the di­ ocesan school, will be hard pressed to duplicate last Spring's championship. He does. : lay claim to one of the best milers' ih the state. Mike Malone, who in all likelihood will be ruiming' the distance in the 4:20's this Spring, has proven himself' time and again on' the track. He will be tough to beat. But, the overall strength of the Coyle club is questionable. The Warriors could make a go of it again but "Attleboro seems to be ,the team to beat this year. Goach Tom Crowe, who has been biiilding 'a track p'ower at Attleboro for the past two sea­ sons, appears to have his club ready this 'Spring, The' Jeweler , mentor, a student of track,' has conducted an intensive Winter 'program at the school, and 'he is hopeful that his and his trackmen's labors will be re­ warded wit~ bot~ ~e.

second successive crown in baseball. And, this year 'the Cardinals will also be directed by a new helmsman. Coach Bob Gordon, successful basketball coach, will turn his sights to baseball when his Car­ dinals conclude play in the Tech Tournament. Coach Jack McCar­ 'thy relinquished the coaching duties to become administrator in the Swansea system. He has left an abun<Iance of 'talent to his succesor. The' experts always say the strength of a baseball club 'is up the middle. That is where Case is 'strong. Veteran performers will be returning to fill these vital positions. . 'Wayne Chace will be back to handle the catching chores, Joe Kirkman and Blll Eddy will again, comprise the double-play combination - Eddy at second and Kirkman at short - and strong-armed Ed Thibeault will hold dowll the center field spot. The brunt of the pitching duties will fall to lanky Tom Austin. Case's opposition is expected to come from Westport and Somerset Realistically, Somer­ set is a more serious threat to upend the Cardinais. . Coach 'Jim Sullivan, ex-Prov­ idence College shortstop ,and knowledgeable baseball man, has nine men returning ftom last season's tournament club.

,Athlete Dies as HlE' P'mayed

The Blue Raiders have their whole infield intact and two of . the three outfield berths filled. Somerset's main problem, ac­ cording to Coach Sullivan, is pitching and catching. If the 'Raiders can come up with one or two capable hurlers and a steady receiver, look for them to challenge Case. On the Narry track scene, Somerset, present title holder,

must work out a few problems and develop depth if the title is going to be its again. Coach Jim White has Jim Franco back for' sprint duty, Ken Day to throw the shot and Preston Henderson for the distance events. He must find long and high jumpers to gain a repeat­ crown.
