Sees Need to Alter Church Laws Now Regulating Nuns ST. LOUIS (NC)-The director of a training center b nuns called for an end to Church laws and regulations that treat Sisters as something less than adults. "For too many years, Sisters were taken for granted and ignored, er patronized and pam­ pered," said Sister John Marie Riley, superior of St. Joseph's Juniorate of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Caronde­ let and professor of theology at I'ontbonne College. If nuns were to "unite to de­ mand their rights of Holy Mother Church," Sister John Marie told the St. Louis Serra Club, "I think our first request ~ould be that we be treated as adults." She sharply criticized a provi­ lion of canon law forbidding :.omen Religious to go out alone. U Any prudent woman, what­ ~er her state in life, will know that there are places and times :When it is improper or unadvis­ able or socially unacceptable for her to go unaccompanied," she 88id.

ever, why is it that in the past such reforms were not thought necessary~ Why is it that the attempts at renewal are thought not only possible but even nec­ essary? Before the Industrial Revolu­ tion there was a nearly unani­ mous sharing of the Faith in all those countries that remained faithful to Rome. Men followed similar rites in similar churches -even if they did not fully understand the meaning of the rites. Yet there was a general idea of what was going on. This. was especially true because of . the religious sense that pervaded all at that time. Everyone spoke of God, of Christ and of the Church.

Oppose Bus Bill Iowa Protestant Leaders See Violation

Of Separation Principle

DES MOINES (NC) - Two proposed state laws, bus trans­ portation for parochial school pupils and legalized gambling, are causing some Protestant church leaders to organize oppo­ sition. The Iowa House has passed a . bill to legalize bingo. Another to permit legal pari-mutuel horse race betting is pen.ding. A House subcommittee is re­ ported ready to recommend pas­ sage of a bill to allow use of tax funds to provide school bus transportation for parochial school students on the same basil as that given public school pupils. One prominent Protestant leader, Methodist Bishop James Thomas, feels that a campaign to oppose the passage of the pro­ posals might be starting too late. DRY CLEANNG






Active in trying to rally Prot­ estant opposition 11 the Iowa Council of Churches, represent­ ing 13 denominations with nearly 700,000 members. In its monthly pUblication, the Councilor, the council told its local church members to call on their legislators to oppose both the bus and gambling legislation. In an article entitled, "School," it said: "The Council Assembly urges churches and citizens to oppose this subversion of the American principle of separation of church and state. Urge your legislators to vote down this (bus transoor­ tation) bill."

Problem in Kansas

Back Once Again

LOS ANGELES (NC)-Federal aid to education should be decided on its merits and not on the issue of separation of church and state, Oalifornia's superintendent of public instruction said here. Max Rafferty, speaking (Feb. 28) to the Catholic Press Co un­ eil of Southern CalifornIa, ism." "For this reason," he contin­ said he did not like the idea "I support Catholic educa­ of federal aid to any schools, ued, tion, though I am not a Catholic, public or private. "But if aid is going to be given, let it be given to the children, just as it was given to pupils under the GI Bill of Rights." Older In his address, Raffert'y said, "private and parochial schools are a lot older on this continent than public schools. They are earrying an absolutely vital lIhare of the educational load. "If federal funds are to be spent to relieve educational pressure, the relief should be extended to all educational agencies." Public and private education," he emphasized, "are two sides of the same coin. Each stimu­ lates the other and always has. They do not pose a threat to each other." Rafferty said there were some persons opposed to the concept ef private schools "and it is my duty to tell you this." "For years," he added, "they have tried to get me to invoke a little statue that would enable the state to meddle in the cur-:­ riculum of private schools. "Private schools should stay out of state control, especially out of mine," he said. "Statism," he said, "hates .the parochial school because it teaches a belief in God and be­ eause in any struggle the paro­ ehial school can always be eounted on to be against stat-

Declares Protestants Fear Papacy Idea . WINOOSKI PARK (NC)-A leading Protestant ecumenist be­ ltev~s the concept of the papacy is a major Catholic contribution to .the ecumenical movement. "All Protestant groups are be­ eoming more orderly now, and an orderly church has to have a helid, a line of responsibility," said the Rev. Douglas Horton, de;ln emeritus of the Harvard divinity school, here in Vermont. "The Pope has been a fright­ ening word to most Protetants, who misunderstand it. I don't think they would fe~r the idea of a primacy, as long as every part of the church didn't have to be identical. The Eastern eatholic rites indicate they don't laave to be identical," Dr. Horton aid.

British Bishops Ask

More Mass English

LONDON (NC)-The Bishops of England and Wales are seek­ ing permission to use more Eng­ Ush in the Mass. They said they hope to intro­ duce the extended vernacular tttis coming Holy Week. For this purpose temporary translations have been sent to the Vatican for approval pending a definitive English version of the missal, on which a translating committee is now working in cooperation with Catholics of other English-speak­ ing countries, including Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and the United States.

Father-Son Breakfast The Fathers' Club of Coyle High School, Taunton, will hold its third annual father-son Com­ munion breakfast following 8 o'clock Mass Sunday morning, April 4 at St. 'Mary's Church, ,Taunton. Breakfast will be , llerved in the Coyle cafeteria.



California School Official Supports U.S. Aid for All

LEAWOOD (NC) -A parish Sunday school of religion, set up in this rapidly growing Kansas com m u nit y to accommodate .children for whom there was no room in the regular weekday parochial school, may soon face the same problem that was the reason for its establishment. Enrollment in the Cure of Ars parish grade school is now at a capacity 575. Enrollment in the parish Sunday school of religion is 675.

and I will, when necessary, fight to protect its right to coexist with the vast public school sys­ tem."

Dialogue Plans In Preparation LOS ANGELES (NC) The National Lutheran Oouncil has given an official stamp to scheduled ecumeni­ cal talks between representative Lutheran and Catholic clergy­ men in Baltimore this March 16. The 3S-member council voted unanimously in favor of a five­ point resolution "to sponsor the­ ological conversations" with rep­ resentatives of the U. S.

The NLC, whose main constit­ uent bodies are the American Lutheran Church, with 2,468;401 members, and the Lutheran Church in America, with 3;227,­ 157 members,' also voted to ask the 2.6-million member Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, to take part in the discussions. Preparation The meeting is to be a prepar­ atory one to draft agenda for a projected theological colloquy and select the time, place and participants for the discussions. For this initial meeting, four Lutheran and four Catholic clergymen have been named to meet at the Baltimore chancery as guests of Lawrence Cardinal Shehan of, Baltimore, head of the bishops' ecumenical commis­ sion.

Sioux City Bishop Joseph Mueller Self-Appointed Experts .Create :Confusion" ,

SIOUX CITY (NC) - Bishop Joseph M. Mueller of Sioux City has protested teachings on theo­ logical and moral matters of self­ appointed experts who, he said, have created "a general state of confusion" in the minds of many' Catholics. ' Bishop Mueller said in a Len­ ten pastoral letter that "the pub- ' lishers, clerical, and lay, who spread these pernicious theories and opinions, and in doing so pri-de themselves as being cham­ pions of the freedom of the press, are totally blind to their greater obligation not to scan­ dalize God's children." _ Spelling out the teachings to which he objected, the Iowa Bishop referred to "the many things that are being said and written about man's personality development, the understanding of his psycholqgical, about sexual behavior in and out of marriage, the emphasis upon community and the de-emphasis

of individual responsibility, the minimizing of sin, the stressing of God's mercy to the point of rej(;lcting His justice and the' existence of hell." These things, he said, "are more than disturbing; they are frightening! How many souls have suffered ·major spiritual damage, formed an erroneous conscience and left the' path of virtue beca\.Jse of such opinions, ' no one kn~ws." ,

Calculated Risk Bishop Lambert Hoch of Sioux Falls Sees 'Hazard' in Quest for Christian Unity SIOUX FALLS (NC) -Joint worship by Catholics and other Christians is "not a matter of personal whim or individual choice," says Bishop Lambert A. Hoch of Sioux Falls. Bishop Hoch noted that par­ ticipation in common worship, under terms of the Vatican Council's decree on ecumenism, is to be decided by the local Bishop "unless otherwise pro­ vided for by the Bishops' confer­ ence • • • or by the Holy See." At the same time, he added, Catholics must be prepared Ul accept a degree of "calculated

risk" in the quest for Christill1l unity. Citing the danger of "indiffer­ entism, the heresy that alleges all religions to be equally good and that it matters little what you believe or to which church you belong," he said: "If ecumenism be a hazard, the Church is committed to face it. We believe it to be a mighty step forward toward the goal­ that all may 'be one."

Archbishop Miranda of Mexico City, with Archbishop Helder Camara of Recife, Brazil, and Bishop Larrain of Talca, Chile, constituted the first trio who as president and first and second vice-presidents of CELAM (the Latin American Bishops' Confer­ a little boy, my father and ence) headed the continental mother made themselves little direction of Latin America's with me and played. with me episcopacy, now totaling like little boys and I was happy. !lOme 540 bishops. Archbishop Miranda recalled some recent history: "Let us look at the new image. Years ago His Holi­ ness Pope Pius XII, deeply con­ cerned about the Church through­ out the world, examined the Latin American eountries. In 1955, he in­ vited all our bishops to gather in Rio de Ja­ neiro on the occasion of the International Eucharistic Con­ gress. "He sent us a magnificent ap­ ostolic letter in which he gave us his thoughts regarding Latin. America. He didn't partake of any pessimism about the future of Latin America. "All those who were privi­ leged to be present (and this in­ eluded the same three of us here today-Archbishop Helder Ca­ mara, Bishop Larrain and I) recognized that memorable re­ union of two weeks ago as the mQst significant gathering in the whole history of Latin America. Out of it came the con­ tinental Episcopal Conference of Latin America whiCh Pius XII instituted at our request. It was the very first permanent re­ lional conference of bishops in Gte history of the Church. Historic First "We three bishops with you today were also present at an­ other historic first: the meeting in Washington in 1959 of bishops from Latin America, Canada and the United States, to which Pope ,John XXIII sent Archbishop Samore as his representative. Out of Pope John's great interest eame the efforts of our brothers in the United States, Canada, Spain, Germany, France, Ire­ land, England, Poland, Belgium, Italy, Austria. This is the real image, the fusion of zeal and love revealed through this prac­ tical working together for the future of the Church in Latin


This picture is being perfected

by your meeting here. Looking to the future, through the sec­ ond and third and each of your succeeding conferences, may you secure an even better picture of Latin America." Cardinal Silva of Santiago made this point: "I will tell you a true story. Years ago an 18-year-old boy was sent to me because he could not get along with his parents. I asked him what he' thought was wrong. 'Padre, when I was

Pope Appoints New Vatican Officials VATICAN CITY (NC) -The day after he named two secreta­ ries of curial congregations to be cardinals, Pope Paul ap­ pointed their successors. He also created two new posts In one of the congregations. To replace Cardinal-designate eesare Zerba, Msgr.Giacomo Violardo was made secretary of the Congregation of Sacramental Discipline. In place of Cardinal­ designate Enrico Dante, Father Ferdinand Antonelli, O.F M., be­ eame secretary of the Congrega­ tion of Rites. ,

But now I am grown up and my parents have remained little; they still want to play with me as if I were a little boy.' "In Latin America many par­ ents and priests, and sometimes your priests and your laymen when they come to work in Latin America, act with our laity as if they judged them still to be little boys. We shall build the Church in Latin America best if we treat our people like full-grown men and call upon them to carry burdens that grown-up men are proud to bear." Protestant Observers Six Protestant observers were invited to the Catholic Inter­ American Cooperation Program conference, and their reaction to the frank discussions was evi­ dently one of admiring satisfac­ tion. Doctor Roswell Barnes, rep­ resenting the World Council of Churches, described his reaction: "It wasn't long before I found myself in a kind of identifica­ tion with what was going on here. I think this was first of all because of the real, genuine comradeship of the inter-per­ sonal relations, but even more because of what you were dis­ cussing and the way you were discussing it. I found that you were discussing the problems with which I am dealing in a different context and with a different group, most of them analagous to problems on our agendas. "The absence of spiritual complacency, or spiritual pride, has been a discipline to me ...... • I'm reminded of what I've made almost a password around our offices recently: the statement of the Ecumenical Patriarch, when he met with the Pope in the Holy Land recently, that our only problems are theological. We still have theological prob­ lems and they are important, but to deal with them in the context of what is happening in the new day presents us with quite a new situation. .

Declares Central Concern Is Peace ST. PAUL (NC)-The central concern of the "Catholic radical" in the 1960s is peace, a member of the Catholic Worker move­ ment has told College of St. Thomas students here in Minne­ sota. Thomas Cornell, former man­ agirlg editor of the Catholic Worker newspaper in New York, said the Catholic Worker move­ ment has espoused pacifism since World War II. Cornell noted pacifism is based on the conviction that no ­ one is justified in killing the innocent-and that nuclear war would inevitably result in the deaths of innocent persons. He advocated unilateral ,disarma­ ment, including the abandon­ ment of "deterrent weapons." "Deterrents are built upon the premise that we are willing, if provoked, to do an evil thing," he said. "Unilateral disarma­ ment means that we recognize the immorality of waiting for someone else to stop doing an evil thing before we will stop doing it."


Cardinal Urges Active Role For Lavmen ST. LOUIS (NC)-Joseph Cardinal Ritter of St. Louis gave a three-part prescrip­ tion-maturity, responsibil­ ity and involvement-for lay­ men who want to play an ex­ panded role in the contemporary Church. Cardinal Ritter said greater maturity and acceptance of re­ sponsibility could lead to the dropping of legalistic Church sanctions like those against eat­ ing meat on Friday or missing Mass on Sunday. Too many Christians, clergy as well as laity, have shirked responsibility in the past, he de­ clared. Failure "'Laws about eating meat on POPE GREETS 'AMERICAN CARDINAL: Leading a Friday and compulsory attend­ delegation of 350 Americans who accompanied him to Rome ance at Mass-these are things less mature people," he said. for his elevation to the cardinalate, Cardinal Shehan of for "Do you think that God is Baltimore and his pilgrims heard the Pontiff say he pleased because someone goes to hoped that the Catholics of Baltimore and all the Catholics Mass only so he won't commit a of America will continue to maintain strong and firm faith mortal sin?

The Great Equalizer Many there are who decry the size of the Federal government and the extent of its vast power that can and does reach' into just about every area' in the life of the nation. But those who equate size with danger should ask themselves what other power in the nation exists that eould bring about the wave of public-school desegregation that has begun to move across the South. Not even the 'power of the various religious groups has been able to effect this-a s'ad statement but a true one. Desegregation in Southern school systems is directly attributable to what one Southern educator called "that great equalizer-the Yankee dollar." , The Federal government has used is vast power and immense monetary grants to force the issue. Federal ed­ ucation grants are given only when there is satisfactory assurance that segregation is being abolished. Lack of this assurance means that the grant simply will not be ap­ proved-and this can affect such things as teachers' sal­ aries, chlssroom construction, vocational training, special eourses for the handicapped. And the Federal government is not being put off by the subterfuge of the admission of a few Negro students or any vague plan, and is even looking with a questioning eye on grade-a-year desegregation plans.. It would have been a wondrous and marvelous boast if-a few decades from now-men of religion could point to desegregation as the work of spiritual forces. But the fact of the matter is that the death knell of moral and p0­ litical and social and educational cancer of segregation is being signalled by the dollar sign. Spiritual forces are at work, the consciences of men are being touched, the strug­ gle is clearly delineated as a moral one, but the only ef­ fective immediate weapon that is accomplishing the goal is money. One would wish tAat a more lofty instrument were winning the battle. But one is grateful that money is being used in such a noble cause. And thank God that the Federal government is ready thus to use it.

Illicit Welfare Recipi'ent Charge Seen as Myth CLEVELAND (NC)-The

"myth" that welfare recipi­ ents are "lazy, immoral and unworthy" was challenged by the secretary of the National C:Onference of Catholic Chari­ ties. Msgr. Raymond J. Gallagher of Washington, D.C., said the nation's 30 million welfare re­ cipients are "among that seg­ ment of our population which is ill-housed and inadequately ed­ ucated-the very old and the very young, the sick and the dis­ abled, emotionally disturbed, mentally retarded, the depen­ dent, the deserted-our brother­ citizens who by _ standards of fair play never had a .chance to get in the game." .

Msgr. Gallagher, speaking at anuual Health and Welfare In­ stitution here noted that 40 per cent of the recipients of some forms of relief came from fami­ lies exactly like the ones the,. have created. '. "What does the future hold for our brothet.-citizens in thUI handicapped position if we main­ tain a status quo?" he asked. Declaring that 'the nation to­ day has the resources to provide "8 full life" for all citizens, the monsignor cautioned against "looking for a scapegoat on which to expend hostility, some­ one to discriminate against, on the pretense of self-preserva­ tion." "We must give and share mON ,enerousl,. with all," he stated.

Liturgy Renewal

In his Angelus address of last Sunday, Pope Paul 'pointed out that the Church had just of­ fered a great sacrifice by putting Into effect the many varieties of the "new liturgy"• ''The Church," the Pontiff explained, "has made a sacrifice of its lan­ guage-Latin--a sacred, serious, beautiful and expressive lan­ guage. It sacrificed centuries-old traditions and the uniiy of language for a greater aspira­ tion of universality. This was done so that the people may join better in prayer and, instead of being passive spectators they might become participants and doers of the sacred rite." Too late? Definitely not. Too _ 800n? How can Ii convinced and dedicated Christian, one who realizes the predicament of the world, the threats to religion and that which Christ and His Church have to offer, even sus­ pect this!

By Mary Tinley Daly There's a saying around our house, "We wouldn't dare move," and around the houses of our married children, "Dad and Mom just couldn't move-look at the attic!" True-when it comes to moving out of our house. But intramural moving? It's <wne daily, and that's no pun. have to keep 'em.With seeming logic, and to Take the garage, for in­ conceal the fact that space is at stance, or that little build­ a premium just now in the attic,

ing back of our house we mis­ takenly dub the agarage, though it hasn't had a ear in it since the y started making all­ weather finishes for automobiles. When, in a spo­ radic fit of space fever, we seek storage for the Summer furniture be­ longing on the porch, the garage is the perfect place. But during the Summer months, the Winter quarters of that porch furniture look so tempting-perfect stor­ age fof a table we picked up at auction and had every intention of refinishing someday, the high chair that an overly ambitious grandchild shook to pieces, the extra crib we could set up for an invasion··· Then, when Hallowe'en rolls "round and it's time to store the porch furniture-well, into the basement go the table, the high chair and sundries which seem to pile up year by year. 'Domino' Theory Like a chain reaction, or like the ."domino" theory so preva­ lent in today's conversation, thil means we have to make more room in the basement by trans­ porting some of its parapherna­ lia up to the attic: that extra bookcase full of volumes, the stacks of back magazines with "an article I might want to re­ fer to someday," the picture frames that don't fit anything right now but are sure to be missed the minute we dispose of them, the trunk Uncle Jim had in World War I-oh,' ;)IOU know! So, on the march once again, .there's only one place for them to go, of course-into the some­ what crowded attic. Plenty of room up there. It's just a matter of making the piles vertical in­ stead of horizontal. The boob that Pat and Johnny, Eileen, Markie, Mary - yes, and the Head of the House and I-had bt. college' (of course we like to keep them) can fit into the bookcase traveled from the garage via the basement. Now. that's good planning. With a sense of smug, if false, I8tisfaction, we note that there is actually room in the basement by this transfer-room for the cartons and cartons that Markie and Brad's wedding presents came in, cartons to be used to pack the presents for their move to the new home. "But do we have to keep aU the cartons?" Markie ask•• Some of them are mighty big and bulky and they'd probably be better off in the attic-if we

we explain that it's only sensi­ ble to put them in the basement. "They come in the front door, you open them in the living room, see? There's only one flight of stairs from that point to the basement. Why, in heav­ en's name, drag them two flights to the attic? We win. Putting little cartons into medium sized cartons, then into big ones, they are dragged into the kitchen, thence down the basement stairs, lined up on the basement floor, quite like the storeroom in a supermarket. That settles the problem. Now we can straighten,up the down­ stairs and the upstairs and take up the storage business at a future time.

Allows Construction Of Catholic School HACKENSACK (NC)--8upe­ rior Judge C. Conrad Schneider has upheld the right of the New­ ark archdiocese to build a high school for boys on a 20-acre site in an expensive residential section of Hohokus,( N. J. Judge Schneider held that a zoning ordinance adopted by the borough after the archdiocese announced plans for a school enrolling '1,500 was "unreason­ able and arbitrary" in barring public and nonpublic schools from the area. He said it is apparent from other court decisions t hat "schools are placed in a very special category and universally permitted despite effect on sur­ ro'unding property." He also called it "diffficult to believe" that construction df a high school on the site would cause "any appreciable property deprecia­ tion."

Catholic Corteges Ask Scholarship Grants

NEW ORLEANS (NC)-There Is a lack of "in-service" pro­ grams to enable lay teachers in

Catholic schools to increase their education and professional sta­ .tus, an educational researcher said here. Utilization of lay teachers in the Catholic school system has increased, but their status has not kept pace, said Reginald 'A. Neuwien, director of a nation­ wide study of Cathollc education in progress .at Notre Dame uni­ versity. Speaking at the annual teach­ ers' institute of the Archdiocese of New Orleans, Neuwien noted that there are both pre-service and in-service programs for Re­ ligious which enables them to pursue further study, but none for lay teachers. He said that as recently as 16 years ago, the lay teacher WlUl looked upon as a temporary sub­ stitute :for an unavailable Reli­ gious. , It is clear, he added, that the status of the lay teacher has im­ proved, "but it has not reached equality with the Religious."

Neuwien, who said hiB eom­ ments are based on the study being made on Catholic elemen­ tary and secondary education in this country, issued statistics to show the increase in proportion of lay teachers to religious teachers. "In the period 1950 to 1962, the lay faculty in the elementary schools increased almost 800 per cent while the Religious faculty increased by 26 per cent," he said. "By numerical weight alone, the lay teacher at all levels must be given very care­ luI consideration." . He said reports show that for the 1962-63 school year there was one lay teacher to every 2.24 Religious teachers on the ele­ mentary level nationwide, antl' one to every 2.62 on the secon-· dary level.

ANNAPOLIS (NC) - F j .",. Catholic colleges have asked the finance committee of the Mary­ land State Senate to make thei7 students eligible for state schol.­ arship grants. An attorney representing n.. College of Notre Dame, Loyo. College, Mount St. Agnes Col­ lege, Mount St. Mary's College and St. Joseph's College said the grants would be constitutional' if made to students individually rather than to institutions.

By Joseph and Marilyn Roderick For the gardener who loves color, shade always pre­ .nts a problem. Most flowering plants need at least six hours of sun a day to produce anything like a profusion of bloom. However, there are a few plants which do well in partial shade and which may enjoys working with dough. be used very effectively to A1J far back as 1225 English brighten an otherwise drab bakers worked overtime during part of the garden. Lent and especially on Good AS far as I am concerned, the best of these is the begonia. ~ith an early start begonias .-n be expected to bloom from late June to frost in a wide nnge of colors. They have an _otic appearance which almost Rems out of keeping in our aorthern gardens, but for this oyery reason are extremely effecave. I have found that similar eolors grouped together, (reds, pinks and orchids) are more colorful than mixtures and much ..ore charming to the eye. Buy begonias as soon as they IIPpear in garden centers and nurseries, some time in March. Plant the bulbs immediately in pots to be kept indoors. Begomas are not hardy so they can DOt be planted outside until the danger of frost is past. I start IIline in the cellar where the temperature is on the cool side and there ia light, only about _0 hours a day. Plant tuben • small pots, one to a pot or _0 to a large pot. I use a potting mixture of one part peat moss and one part garden soil which has been thor~ghly soaked. The bulbs may be planted just below the. surlace of the potting mixture and left undisturbed. From then 1IDtil mid-May when I plant them in my garden, I leave them alone except for an occa810nal watering when they are dry. With these waterings I add ~me liquid fertilizer, although this should not be overdone. It iI important to begin bulbs early or the blooming season ,n,ll be cut down considerably. If you wait to plant the bulbs directly into the garden, the plants will not bloom until August, which may mean only • month of bloom if we h8ve lID early frost.

Begoniaa !lequire water and liquid fertiltzer if they are to bloom at their best, so I usually water them two or three times a week. occamonally spraying the leaves.

eliminated through "a general raising" of the cultural level, ac­ cording to Msgr. Elmer H. Behr­ mann, associate secretary of spe­ cial education for the National Catholic Educational Associa­ tion. He said research strongly incll­ cates that the cause of two out of three cases of retardation in thill country is social and cultural deprivation. These are the non-organic cases of retardation, not trace­ able to pre-natal or birth de­ fects, said the St. Louis prelate. ''These are the boys and girls who because of some cultural, social or emotional deprivation function like retarded children in terms of their achievement," said Msgr. Behrmann, who was a member of the special commit­ tee assembled in October 1961 by President Kennedy to study mental retardation. Wipe Out Slums They are victims, Msgr. Behr­ mann noted, of poor housing, undernourishment and weak education. The three per cent of the United States population af­ flicted with retardation com­ pares to only one per cent ill Denmark and Sweden, he said. "Why the difference?" '"The answer is they have elim­ inated the sources of cultural and social deprivation," he said. "They just don't have slums.

There are' no really deprived

areas." College Free

He added that these eountriel

also have a "high rate of em­ 'p10yment." They prGvide thor- . 'ough pre-natal medical care and the educational level is high. "All go to high school and c_ . go to college free," he said. Msgr. Behrmann said an esti­ mated 250,000 Catholic ehildrea' in this country are retarded. Only 6,900 are enrolled in Cath­ olic special 'facilities, he said, adding that this is "a very em­ barrassing three per ,cent." .• He stated, however, that Cath­ olic facilities are spreading rap­ .

Continuing War In Vietnam

Cardinal Repeats Pope's Request On Bi rth Control

NEW YORK (NC) - A Catholic priest told a group protesting U.S. policy in Vietnam that neither the United States nor any other na­ tion can hope to gain from the continued fighting in that coun­ try. Father Daniel Berrigan, S.J., a member of the editorial staff of Jesuit Missions Magazine,' .peaking at a rally at Commu­ nity, (Protestant) Church said to wage war in modern times, as war is being waged in Viet­ nam, is forbidden, for "in such war ,man stands outside the blessing of God. He stands, in fact, under his curse." The Jesuit writer, a sponsor of the Catholic Peace Fellow­ ship and a member of the execu­ tive committee of the Interna­ tional Fellowship of Reconcili­ ation, declared that Americans "share in the guilt of a nation which is waging modern war and which is preparing for total war. To men of conscience, such works cry out to heaven for re­ dress. They also sow into man'. future a poison which the un­ born will be condemned to breathe - hatreds, divisions, world poverty, hopelessness. In , such an atmosphere the world comes ever closer to the actu-' alityof hell. ' Path of Peace "The war offers no future for the people of that country, no future for the Chinese, no future for Russians or Americans. For violence begets violence, torture begets frenzy, conscience and principle are submerged in the horrors of the moment. "The making of peace," Father', Berrigan said, "implies the will to return to our world of love; to stand firm in public, to confront the powers and the principalitieS, to assert in time of war that DO ' government which makes war can govern well; that we our­ selves will not submit before a governing hand that would thrust weapons into our hands and command, us away from the paths ·of peace."

Grant Aids Center For, Unemployed' CLEVELAND (NC)-The Cleveland diocese has been as­ sured of a federal grant for its project PEACE (Program for Educational and Cultural Excel­ lence) to aid the chronically un­ employed. The assurance came from U. S. Rep. Charles A. Vanik of Ohio, who said a tentative allotment of $300,000 has been allocated for administration and training at the PEACE project's skill eenter-a program which will take a family centered approach to the problem of training the unemployed. Believed to be the first pro­ gram of its kind in the U. S., the PEACE project is not part of the federal anti-poverty program.

LONDON (NC) - At a press conference here, John Cardinal Heenan of West­ minster repeated what he

Pope, Paul Reads His Prayer for Vocations

had said at London airport on his return from Rome-that Pope Paul had requested an end for the moment to public dis­ cussion of birth control. He pointed out, however, that this had reference to official participation by bishops· and others in ecclesiastical authority. "I take the request to mean that those in authority should refrain from public declaration and that public discussion of an official kind should be withheld," he added. Experts He noted that the request dated back to the third session of the Vatican Council when Pope Paul set up a commission of experts to restudy the Church's approach to the birth control question. As to when any statement might be expected from the commission of experts, Cardinal Heenan said: "I do not know when the commission will re­ port." Asked about two English priests recently taken to task by their superiors for speaking out on the subject of birth control, the cardinal said that it was not liis concern as both were out­ side his diocese. The cardinal thought that in­ dividual Catholics would exer­ cise individual freedom to dis­ cuss the subject, but as for the clergy, as the request was made by the Pope, it was a matter of ' discipline.

God Love You By Most Rev. Fulton J. Sheen, D.D. We know of juvenile delinquency in American cities, in Europe and in Russia. But do we ever think of juvenile delinquency in the Missions? Actually in one place in the Congo, it was 88 ser­ ious as anywhere else in the world. A group called "LeI bills" consisted of 80 per cent of the youth in one area. They had their own slang, their own songs and dances and special names for their districts. Some of the members called themselves "Kennedy," "Old Ross," "Khrushchev;" Uley ran wild-robbing, maraud1ng, killing.

Guatemalans Silent On Priest Ouster GUATEMALA CITY (NC) The ouster of a Spanish priest 1rom this Central American re­ public has touched off a series of repercussions leading to a special investigation by the Na­ tional Constituent Assembly here. The ouster of Father Luis Gur­ riaran was related to his pio­ neering work in the cooperative movement among the impover­ ished Indian population in the province of El Quinche and to person,al differences he had with the province governor, Col. Ru­ ben Gonzalez Rivera. Neither government officials nor Church authorities will shed much light on the reasons for the priest's expulsion. Govern­ ment officials refer all questions to Bishop Angelico Melotto Maz­ zardo of Solola in whose diocese Father Gurriaran was working. The Bishop says only that the priest has been transferred by his religious superiors and as­ signed to new talks in Venezuela.

It's Conege Scholarship Time

THE ANCHORThurs., March 11, 1965

For Hardworking Students At Diocesan High Schools It's college scholarship time for lucky (and hard­ working) seniors at Diocesan high schools. At Bishop Stang in North Dartmouth, Frances Przybyla, The Anchor's school reporter, has received a $2,000 award from Emanuel in Boston. She is following prepare for their an­ a scientific course at Stang students nual Glee Club Spring Concert, and intends to major in to be held at 8 Sunday night, math at college. At Sacred March 28 at Keith Junior High Hearts Academy in Fan River Paula Powers, honor society president, and also Anchor re­ porter, has been awarded a $4,400 scholarship to Seton Hill College, while Ellen Demetrius, orchestra president, received a $2,000 grant from Stonehill In North Easton. Susan' Reid, Sev­ enteeners president at the Fall River school, holds a $2,500 grant from Stonehill and a $1,000 award from the U. of Mass. Many acceptances have also been recorded, with Donald Me­ lanson and Raymond Bedard of Prevost High in Fall River head­ ing towards the Northeast Ip.sti­ tute of Industrial Technology and Richard Goddu, also a Pre­ vostite, expecting to attend the University of Arizona. William Synnott, basketban captain and student council pres­ ident at Holy Family in New Bedford, has been accepted at Providence College; and at Do­ minican Academy in Fall River those precious yes-letters are being clutched by Catherine Watkinson, University of South­ ern Florida; Patricia Diamante, St. Joseph's College; and Lucille Boilard, Annhust and Emman­

ueL Science, Maftt Science fairs and various exams are much in the news, with nearly every school having had, having, or going to have one or the other. Prevost's fair closed yesterday and winners will enter their projects in the regional science exhibit, upcom­ ing later in the Spring. Holy Family and Dominican Acad­ emy have also held their fairs and Lucille Boilard notes some interesting titles of DA exhibits. They include "Beat, Heart, Beat," entered by Louise Lanne­ ville; "Caffeine vs. Sleep," the entry of Janice Costa and "Anes­ thetics vs. Marine Life," the ex­ hibit of Suzanne Ratte. Bishop Feehan High in Attleboro and Mt. St. Mary's in Fall River have also concluded their fairs. Exams currently being agon­ ized over include the National High School Mathematics Exam, on the schedules at Mt. St. Mary, Bishop Feehan, and St. An­ thony's. The annual exam of the United Nations Association of the United States was another tough one, taking three hours and including questions on the history, theory and practice of the UN. "No one complained the exam was too easy," was one student's comment. Also making the rounds are National Merit exams, college boards, Auxilium Latinum quizzes and National Educational Development tests. At Peter Francisco Day cere­ monies this Saturday in Peabody, winners of an essay contest sponsored by the Portuguese­ American Civic League ~ill be announced and among those eagerly awaiting results are sen­ iors at St. Anthony High. Roll-A-Scholar Students from Prevost, D0­ minican Academy, Jesus-Mary, and Mt. St. Mary will participate in a "Roll-A-Scholar to College" event from 6:30 to 10 tonight at Lincoln Park Roller Rink. The program is sponsored by the youth branch of Fall River Citi­ zens' Scholarship Foundation. Youth branch president is Paul Nowak, Prevost senior, who's in charge of tonight's event. At Sacred Hearts Academy in­ Fairhaven music is in the air _

School, New' Bedford. General chairman for the pro­ gram is Mrs. Joseph Cataldo Jr. of the academy alumnae associa­ tion. She notes that Joseph Di­ Domenico will conduct and guest soloists will include Ronald Remy, tenor, and Miss Rita Souza, soprano. Debaters at Prevost High "compiled a fine 4-2 record at the Catholic Memorial Debate Tournament," says reporter Nor­ mand Dube. The teams of Char­ land and Lizotte, Stazzone and Dugal each won two, lost one, he further notes. "Prevost's fine moment came after learning of our affirmative's defeat of a highly regarded Narry League opponent--8t. Anthony's." Senoritas at Fall River's SHA presented their annual Spanish play and entertainment in honor of Pan-American Day. Members of all Spanish classes partici­ pated and pan-American feeling extended down to the Holy Union kindergarten, which holds sessions in the high school build­ ing. The tots offered a Spanish dance. Lending an international' touch to the program were French class students, who mod­ eled hand-made hats they were wearing in honor of Mardi Gras. Prizes were given to the most . original, the funniest and the prettiest creations. St. Anthony seniors, I8Y1l Pauline LaFrance, "breathed a sigh of relief as they handed in the last book reports they ever will-in high school." The re­ ports, last of 10 required yearly from each student, were due early this month, and were gladly surrendered. / Promote Enthronement Knights and Handmaids of the Sacred Heart at Bishop Stang High have for their March proj­ ect the encouragement of home enthronements of the Sacred Heart. A play, depicting the en­ thronement ceremony, was pre­ sented to students and they were urged to promote this project to parents, neighbors and friends. The annual father-daughter dance at Mt. St. Mary's was held in two sections: one night for seniors and freshmen, -the next for sophs and juniors. The theme for the dance was "Mardi Gras" and a king and princess were crowned each night. The annual student retreat k under way at Bishop Feehan High, conducted this year by Rev. Edward Mitchell of Holy Name parish, Fall River. Un­ derclassmen are attending the school exercises, while seniors are at La Salette retreat house making a closed retreat. 'At Bishop Stang, junior and senior boys, members Oil. the sodality, will make a retreat the weekend of March 19 at Stone­ hill College. Other boys sodal­ ists will make a retreat the same weekend at Gonzaga Retreat House in Gloucester. Miss Nancy Walsh, Dominican Academy physical education teacher, will accompany stu­ dents to Portsmouth High School Saturday, March 20, where they'll attend a basket­ ball playday. In intramural basketball at DA, Arline Belanger's Afghan Hounds have defeated Trudy Rousseau's Pekingese and Jay Baraby's Dachshunds. Sports are becoming more im­ portant at Prevost, too, as Spring

Five basketball teams have been formed from fresh­ men alone and also under way are volleyball and softball pro­ grams. In the first invitational Prevost bowling tournllment, winners were Paul Lizotte, Rob­ ert Froment and Paul Bernier. Fathers Form Club Fathers of students at SHA Fall River have caught up with mothers, who have for decades been organized in the Sucordium Club. This week the dads formed their own group,' which will doubtless be beard from early and often. Students at St. Anthony's viewed a movie on Communist tactics and heard a lecture by Rene Fontaine on the same sub­ ject. The students, members of the government class, are now examining Communism as part of their course. At Bishop Feehan a Golf Club is in process of formation. It will represent the school in the Bristol Scholastic League's west­ ern division, which already in­ cludes Coyle High of Taunton. There'll be six regular players and four alternates on the Fee­ han team. A sparkling new trophy case can be seen in the halls of Pre­ vost these days. "The glory glass" was constructed by Brother Nor­ mand of the Prevost staff, who has also painted the principal's office. Also a vacation project at Prevost was the near completioh of the school. yearbook, with the staff directed by Brother Robert. St. Anthony High has received 14 American flags from the American Legion. They were given' in commemoration of stu­ dents' choices of the 14 greatest presidents. Now the school is all ready to be a massed colors sec­ tion all by itself in any parade. Prevostites have been wel­ eoming Brother Patrick, a for­ mer teacher and principal, on an inspection visit to the Fall River school. Brother bas been pro­ vincial of the American province of the Brothers of Christian In­ struction for the past seven years and is now' first assistant to the community's superior gen­ eral. 'Blaek Like Me~ Mt. St. Mary students are still discussing the stirring lecture given last Friday night by John Howard Griffin to a capacity crowd of 700, many of whom stood throughout his two-hour talk. "The first thing we must realize," he said, "is that no one can escape the problem of rac­ ism which faces this land. It affects all Negroes and whites as well The.- viewpoint of the

Negro in. no way coincides with the view of the whites." The 44 year old author de­ cided to study the problem more deeply. He had his skin dark­ ened by a doctor and lived as a Negro, thus obtaining the infor­ mation on which his best-sell­ ing book, "Black Like Me," is based. He came to realize how white people think about Negroes. They picture the entire race as a stereotype of simple childlike people. He also pointed out that it is not only simple white peo­ ple who are prejudiced but also the highly educated, who have a blind spot about Negroes. . When he became a Negro, :Mr. Griffin did nothing more than color his skin and shave his hair. He did not change his voice, clothing, or credentials. JU!lt the fact that his skin was colored kept him out of restau­ rants, churches, hotels, and pub­ lic rest rooms. On some occasions he applied for jobs by telephone and was asked to come in for interviews,


but when it was seen he was colored, he was told the job had been filled or that they could not use him any more. This proved to him that no matter what their educational back­ ground, Negroes are judged bJ' the color of their skin. During his first day as. a Negro, Mr. Griffin discovered he was not an individual but a mass, just another person to be detested by whites. Mr. Griffin also described what Negl'oes call "the System." According to this, Negroes said they were citizens, and should defend their country and pay taxes BUT they should. not vote, be educated, employed, have equality of protection under law. They should not have access to concerts, theaters, public libra­ ries and other facilities granted . to white people. Pro-Human The solution to this problem, Mr. Griffin said, is that "we must give up the idea of being pro-North or pro-South and be­ come pro-human." Brother John Neidl, C.S.c., band director at Coyle, has an­ nounced a band concert to be held on Sunday, March 21, at Coyle. The presentation will be entitled "The Sound of Jazz", and will cover the history and development of Jazz from the "Blues" of Dixieland through to Symphonic Jazz. The band will also present 81l assembly -program at Bishop Cassidy High School; and OIl Sunday, March 28, membel'll . from the Jazz Ensemble will be at Sacred Hearts Academy ill Fall River for a concert. Francis Dubreuil of Westport, . Stang junior, has been named zone four winner of an Amer­ ican Legion oratorical contest held in Fall. River. Previously Francis was second place winner in the Bristol County contest.. He will now represent his area in state finals. Also competing was Mal'7 Beth O'Connor of Somerset, a sophomore at SHA Fall River, who had been named Bristol County winner. Seniors Bob Dewey and Scott Santos have been chosen as co­ captains for the Spring Track Team at Coyle.

Prelate Explains· Catholic Position

Romantic Daydreaming Oft Proves to be Nightmare

BOSTON (NC)-Richard Cardinal Cushing has stated that he does not oppose re­ peal of Massachusetts anti­

By John J. Kane. Ph. D. "I am a housewife, married 11 years with three child. reno As a teenager I had many boyfriends. When I met my husband I thought he' would be my love for life. Then we had to get married. But now I am always getting crushes on other men. One learn that this is utterly im­ time it was the breadman, possible. . another time a neighbor. Romantic love has its place in These men never know it, life. But eventually it should and I never do anything immor­ al, just romantic dreaming. But if I really loved my husband, I doubt I would be this way." It's rather dif­ ficult, Julie, to be clear on just what you are saying in your letter. It seems to me that you engage in romantic day­ dreaming about other men. You do this quite often shifting from one to an­ other. Now you are suffering a sesnse of guilt, fearing it is an ltidication that you no longer o love your husband. In my opinion the seriousness of this depends on just how far this romantic daydreaming goes. Some women become downright silly about this sort of thing. There have been a number. of what used to be called matinee idols ranging from Francis X. Bushman, Rudolph Valentino, later Rudy Vallee down to the px:esent crop of movie stars. Modem Idols But the field has been usurped today by the rock and roll sing.;. ers, the most notable being the Beatles. Some, doubtless unkind persons, maintain they have more hair than talent. (Letters will flood me for that state­ ment.) But I honestly can't tell. I never heard them. It isn't becausE; I never tried to listen to them, somewhat in­ voluntarily, I admit. But with three teenage daughters and a normal curiosity, I did look at them on television. There was 80 much female screaming that I heard neither their music or voices. Of co.urse, men are not im­ mune to attractions of female stars. They are, however, more restrained. It is also true that the great talent of some of these ladies is more anatomical than

art. A great deal of this is rather foolish but probably not really harmful. I am not including some of the pinups which deco­ rate many of the barracks dur­ ing the war and later. Sometimes these are practically pornographic. _ To find a member of the op­ posite sex who is attractive, charming or handsome is scarce­ ly immoral. On the contrary, it is perfectly natural. But I fear your problem extends beyond this. First of all, you seem to have some kind of psychological need always to have this romantie feeling toward another man. The heart of the question is: why? One statem~nt in your letter seems to provide a elue. You thought, when you met your husband, he would be your love for your lifetime. But then you got married. Some Media Misleading An unfortunate aspect of American society is that mar­ riage is actually overidealized by the romantic. Notions of mar­ riage are gathered from short stories, novels, motion pictures and other media most of which depict it as a never ending, glorious, rom ant i c paradise. Every married couple comes to

grow into a deep, spiritual and temporal type of love. Life sim­ ply cannot be> one long thrill. With true love comes under­ standing and this helps husband and wife to withstand the inev­ itable disillusions that must come to all. In the flush of romantic love,. each partner views the other as perfect, entirely above the more mundane aspects of human ex­ istence. But in the intimacy of marriage husband and wife prove to be not perfect but per­ fectly human.' Each has his or her imperfections mutual ad­

justment must be made for them. Love and Sacrifice In the nuptial Mass the cou­ ple is reminded that marriage involves sacrifice but that true love will make this possible. Perhaps no couple really appre­ ciates the w.isdom of this state­ ment until months after mar­ riage. As we grow older and face up to the inevitable of life, we tend to· eschew the silly romantic no­ tions for more intelligent ones. This, you seem not quite able to do yet. One reason you apparently n eve r suffer disillusionment about your crushes is that you never come to know them very well. The breadman's wife might have a few comments about him that would startle you. Distant pastures always look gree~er, an old cliche, lSut rather appropriate in this case. It is also a bit dangerous. So far your romantic daydreaming has not gone beyond this but you are tempting fate if you continue to indulge in it deeply. The imagination is both a wonderful and a perilous quality of hu­ mans. It can make us creative, interesting, inventive. But it can also lead us into sin. Beware of Disaster Even though you have never let these men know of your feelings toward them, suppose some day, one suspects them. Or suppose in your unrestrained daydreaming you become im­ pulsive. Perhaps a serious quar­ rel with your husband, or per­ haps an irritating frustration. Then you may try to make your daydreams a reality with what can not be less than disastrous consequences. Since you are given to this kind of romantic daydream and· since you apparently have such a lively imagination, why not use your husband as the target of your dreams? It may be dif­ ficult because you are so close to him. You know his faults and shortcomings. But with your imagination, I suspect· that an you need is a little more effort. I hope I will not offend you, by saying that this sort of thing is rather immature for a person of your age. One understands silly crushes of young school girls for boys. But you are well beyond this or at least ought to be.

Laws on' Nuns Continued from Page One doctor of philosophy degree, also called for a new look at nuns' confessions. She charged that "in the use of the Sacrament of Penance, Sisters ... 0\< * have even less freedom than children." Specifically she protest,ed a re­ quirl;lment of canon law that Religious go to confession at least once a week. "Any layman," she com­ mented, "has the privilege of going to confession when -he needs absolution or when he feels that the reception of the sacrament will be spiritually beneficial. But the Religious woman, who is expected' to achieve--and usually does have -a spiritual maturity not de­ manded of the lay person in the world, must make her way to the confessional on a specified day. "She must go at a stated hour because her confessor knows that there are so many Sisters in the house and he will wait until he has lifted his hand in absolution that many times. "I do not. know any Sisters who would not appreciate know­ ing that a confessor will be available for her spiritual growth on such a day during such a period of time, should she wish to take advantage of his pres­ ence. Bu~ to be obliged to con­ fess at 4 o'clock on Wednesdays is a very easy way to produce the routine confessions that priests often deplore." Sister John Marie said one reason for the "over-protective" attitude of Church laws toward nuns is that they have been writ­ ten by men rather than women. "Something should be done to give women Religious a more flexible framework of Church law in which they can draw up

their constitutions and form their customs," she declared, adding this. "could be best achieved" by naming women, both Religious and lay, to the commission in charge of revising canon law and by appointing some Sisters to the Sacred Con­ gregation of Religious. She described changes in nUlllf habits as a needed but somewhat superficial reform. "Sisters are in favor--or op­ posed-to the adoption' of con­ temporary dress in somewhat equal proportions," she said, "but generally for reasons far different from those advocated by 'letters to the editOll"" con­ tributors. Very few ,Sisters ob­ ject to the simplification of their present dress." .

birth control law - but does oppose pending legislation for that purpose. The cardinal said the pending repeal bill "does not contain proper safeguards and this could result in great harm and mis­ chief to the public, especially to the young." He called instead for estab­ lishment of a special citizens'. study commission "representing a broad community consensus" to make recommendations for a repeal amendment that would satisfy "the conscientious opin­ ions of the whole community." Faithful to Convictions While there is "no change, present or contemplated," in tra";

ditional Catholic opposition tilt artificial birth control, he stated that does not mean that· Cath­ olics favor the present state law banning distribution of birth control information and devices. "Catholics do not need the support of clvillaw to be faithful to their own religious convic­ tions and they do not seek to impose by law their moral views on other members of society." he said. Discussing the relationship be­ tween law and morality, Cardi­ nal Cushing said ''there should be a reasonable correspondence between the moral standards generally recognized by the con­ science of the community and the legal standards concerning public morality," "Otherwise," he warned, "laws will be unenforceable and ineffective."

Postal Counsel Feels Magazines. Meet Court Obscenity Ruling WASHINGTON (NC) - The chief counsel of the Post Office Department told a Senate Judi­ ciary subcommittee that several so-called "men's" magazines are not legally obscene. The opinion has been ex­ pressed by Louis J. Doyle after several magazines were sub­ mitted by subcommittee' counsel Bernard Fensterwald Jr. Surveillance Study Doyle stressed "what I might consider obscene might not be what would be considered ob­ scene by the' courts." He said that in dealing with the obscen­ ity question the Post Office goes by the U. S. Supreme Court's

WASHINGTON (NC)-Cath­ olic, J,ewish and Protestant lead­ ers have been invited to a na­ tional "Conference to Combat Obscenity" here March 22 and 23 under the auspices of the Churchmen's Commission for Decent Publications. Speakers will include Charles H. Keating Jr., Cincinnati at­ torney and founder of Citizens for Decent Literature; Father Morton Hill, S.J., of Operation Yorkville, New York City inter­ faith anti-obscenity organization and Dr. Caradine Hooten of the Churchmen's Commission., Founded in 1957, the Church~ men's Commission includes rep­ resentatives of some 30 Protes­ tant denominations.

1957 Roth test-whether' the dominant theme of the material, taken as a whole in light of con­ temporary community standards, appeals to prurient interests of the average person. Irving Fishman, official of the Bureau of Customs whoap­ peared with Doyle before the subcommittee, said he agreed with the Post Office counsel, adding Customs "could do little" t::> keep such magazines out of the country if they were pub­ lished overseas. The subcommittee hearings are mainly concerned with pos­ sible invasions of privacy by)he Post Office through such dev.ices as peep holes to 9bserve postal employes and the use of' so­ called mail covers--surveillance procedures placed on mail sent or received by persons believed to be involved in a crime. . Behind Iron Curtain Another concern is the admin· istration of a 1961 law under which the Post Office impounds mail sent from communist countries unless the adriressee asks lor its delivery. Up to now the Post Office hal retained cards filled out by in­ dividuals who request d~livery of such mail. But starting March 15, Doyle told the subcc·mmit­ tee, the department will follow a policy of destroying the cards.

Stresses Civil Action Is Path In Unity Move PITTSBURGH (NC) - It is in the area of common civic action that Christian denominations have the best ehance of progressing toward. reunion says Robert McAfee Brown of Stanford University. An observer at the second ses­ sion of Vatican Council II and one of the nation's better known Protestant theologians, the Pres­ byterian scholar told an ecu­ menical symposium at Duquesne University here that the race issue is an area "in which we are not doctrinally separated, on which we are unequivocally one." Brown said thE. progress of ecumenism has involved five steps: hating, ignoring, talking about, praying for and praying With. Decline Invites A principal fac~or leading to the present atmosphere of good will, he said, was formation of the World Council of Churches in Edinburg, Scotland, in 1910. He asserted th~ Council is not • "super Church," but a "vehicle 8f approach between the Ortho­ dox and the many Protestant denominations." He noted at that time there were more than 250 Protestant sects with virtually no dialogue among them. The world council also made it possible for exchanges between the Vatican and Protestants, he said. "In 1948 and again in 195-l when the world council met, the Holy See was asked to send ob­ servers. In each instance the in­ vitation was turned down," be said. "For the meeting in 1961, Pope .John XXIII accepted the invita­ tion. Five priests were present. Since that time no such large gathering of Protestants has been held without priest-observers present. Now this Februal'y at Geneva no less a personage than Cardinal Augustin Bea, head of the Vatican Secretariat for Christian Unity, attended a meeting of the WCC at its Gen­ eva headquarters," he added. Pope John, he said, '~aptured the imagination and affection of Protestants.· His spontaneous concern for all appealed to them. Although he did not initiate ecu­ menical concern, he did release it. He indicated that what just a few persons wert doing in isola­ tion had to be done publicly and on a broad scale." ('ommon Dialogue "The very fact that a cound! was called gave some indication that reform is necessary before ecumenism can make substantia! positive strides. For this reason I consider the Pope's plea for aggiornamento one of the most important events of the past four centuries, "The council has pulled the rug out from under the bad stereotypes which the Catholic Church had had for 400 yea-rs. With the formation of Cardinal Bea's permanent secretariat un­ der the Holy Father the Catholic voices speaking from the Vatican on the subject of unity were no longer individual voices, but had official sanction," he said. "\Vc can't be discouraged," he stated, "at our many differences. Just being together to find out these· differences helps us to discuss them." Of the decree on religious lib­ erty pending before Vatican Council II he said: "It would be an ecumenical tragedy if it were not passed. While there are cer­ tain other documents that in the long run have greater imfjQr­ tance, there is none more urgent at the moment than this one."

Belgian Center Prepares Catechists for World BRUSSELS (NC)-Transmit­ ting the "good news" of God's Word with urgency-and success -of the early Apostles has al­ ways been a central concern of the Church. For an age of Christian re­ newal, however, the content and techniques of religious education have been the subjects of search­ ing study and of more skilled specialization. One of the principal spiritual powerhouses of this catechetical renewal in the Church is the Lumen Vitae (Light of Life) in­ stitute here, which attracts a top level group of 120 students each year from all over the world. The students who come each day to hear the French lectures (w i t h simultaneous English translation) of • theologically

star-studded faculty of 60, are chosen from an even larger num­ ber of appiicants on the basis of their future promise or wide­ spread influence in the catechet­ ical apostolate. Three Programs The student body of 60 priests, 40 Sisters and 20 lay men and women is divided into a three­ track program - an advanced course for those holding gradu­ ate degrees in theology; a gen­ eral course; and a pioneering community development pro­ gram for training in the social action apostolate. For the advanced and general course students, the program en­ tails specialized lectures on the message of God (what is taught); the nature of man in himself and in society (to whom God's mes-

sage is taught); and the trans­ mission of God's message (how it is taught). Strong emphasis is given to Scriptural studies, to religious psychology and sociology and to special practical courses in spir­ itual direction, pastoral consul­ tation, the apostolate of charity,

and even to such small-but im­ portant-features as the forma­ tion of Mass lectors and com­ mentators. The director of the institute­ and the editor of the influential catechetieal review L u men Vitae-is a small, wiry Jesuit, Georges Delcuve, He regularly interviews each student and per­ sonally gives periodic lectures to integrate the work of the faculty. One of Father Delcuve's chief assistants, Miss M. de Cleene, di-

rects the program of the commu­ nity development section. After several months of study in Brus­ sels in courses designed to inte­ grate the students' religious and secular formation, the group win travel to the University of Man­ chester, England, for specialized study in community develop­ ment. Then, for six weeks, the

members of the group will work:

on community development

projec~ in Ghana under the di­ rection of its government. A month of further study and re­ flection in Brussels will bring the crowded year of the newly formed "Christian specialists" to a close. The heart of the eight-year­ old institute, however, remains in its program of catecheticall'e­ newal.

Self.Pity Prevents Youth From Reaching Maturity



By Rev. Joseph T. McGloin, S. J .

. Not too long ago, I stood before a group of teen-agers

whIle we discussed "maturity." In general the kids dis­

cuss a subject like this with remarkable i~telligence and

truth, but sometimes they can't see beyond their own wish­

ful thinking to objective

ture out of this state without reality. At the time, one such effort. Kids who are immature

teenager insisted that, con­ enough to be going steady will

trary to what I had given not grow out of the situation

as an opinion, just about all high­ school teen-agers are mature enough to mal'ry, and this de­

spite the over­ whelming per­

centage of utter

marriage fail­

llres among those who actu­ ~lly do make

t 1': e attempt. Now once a teen - ager is eonvinced that

he is mature be­

yond his years,

there isn't any effective argu­ ment against him. About all you can do is tell him to wait a few years and then eome up and take a lOok at a similar crowd from your own yantage point. You see kids who are mature it- many ways, yes, just as ma­ ture as their years and experi­ ence have allowed. You see others-the vast majority-who are mature in some minor ways, but almost completely immature in others. And the overwhelm­ ing fact you would like to show them as vividly as possible is the vast, essential difference in • person, any person, at 17, say, and that same person at 23. Youth Marriages Undoubtedly, this is one of the great reasons so many young marriages break up or simply end up in misery-that the kids, who chose each other as mar­ riage partners in the first place for superficial qualities such as looks or charjll of one sort or other, are shocked and disap­ pointed when these superficial eharacteristics disappear .even in yery early adulthood. They are jolted, for instance, when the sympathy they had found in each other turns to sympathy­ seeking instead. Maturity is a funny thing, and it takes a lifetime to acquire it -in fact, some people never do make it. But it is also funny in its degrees-in the fact that the maturity required for marriage, say, simply will not be rushed. A girl may mature more quickly physically today-and she does ~than ever before, A boy may "mature" socially much more suddenly than in· previous gen­ erations. But the emotional and intellectual and simple common­ sense of real adulthood takes time as an e sse n t i a 1 ele­ ment - no matter what other eontributingele~'ents (such as early responsibilities) may be present. Just because a teen­ ager is able to do many of the things a man or a woman can do (like driving a car, for instance) 'does not necessarily mean that he or she is mature. Emotional Maturity There are, moreover, some facets of emotional maturity that, age or no age, we never do acquire unless we get next to ourselves and see that we acquire them. Sexual and phys­ ical maturity come naturall¥ and automatically with no effort on our parts. We hav€. to work for intellectual and emotional ma­ turity, however. The adult, for instance, who still has a "horrible temper" is not going to just grow out of it. The habitual dru.nk will 110t ma-

automatically, but must strive

for the maturity and will power

to help themselves. The brag­

gart will never be anything but a loudmouthed kid unless he

wises up and stops making an infantile nuisance of himself. Self-pity But of all the manifestations of emotional immaturity, per­

haps the one w1).ich dies last most slowly and most painfully; is the crippling human defect of self-pity. We tend to love our­

selves selfishly as long as life goes on-unless, again, we catch

on and try to do something about the silly situation. In a child, of course, we ex­ pect some self-pity, because we've helped, more often than not, to put it there. The kiddie who falls but doesn't really hurt himself usually doesn't scream nearly as loud when he has no audience either in sight or with­ in sound. And the adult self­ pitier doesn't do his griping without an audience either-al­ though he does prepare himself for it remotely within the nar­ row confines of his own little mind and heart. The self-pitier is selfish. The home revolves, not around his family, but around h·imself. He doesn't much care what they get or what they endure, just so long as he get;; more and en­ dures less. Of course, no matter how much he gets, and no mat­ ter how little he endures, he will always see himself as much more picked on than are the others. 'Misunderstood' This character is "misunder­ stood" by just about everybody - by his parents, his teachers, his coaches, everybody. He's the perpetual poor loser - who blames the umpire for the bad call, the team-mate for his miss­ ing a Pl;lss, his teachers for his lack of learning, his parents for his silly seeking of affection in all the wrong ways and wrong places. He is never wrong-the rest of his world is wrong. He never makes ~ mistake-it is o~ly that others drive him into seeming missteps. And on the "positive" side, no' one else has ever ·ac­ complished anything worthwhile - unless, of course, with his help. Nobody ever suffers as much as the self-pitier. I once visited 'i little old guy in a hospital who had just had an ·operation which had taken away his power of speech for keeps. Yet he was cheerful and conformed to God's Will, tough at it was. A few doors 'down, I encountered an­ other patient, who had lost the tiniest part of his little finger in a machine. You would think the world had ended, as not just

he, but what must have b~n all of his relatives from miles around, wailed and wailed at this loss. The nice part of a hospital is that all you have to do is toddle next door to forget your own self-pity.

Durfee will take on Archbish­ op Williams High of Braintree tomorrow night in the semi­ finals of Class A in the State scholastic tourney. Coach 'Skip­ py' Karam's Hilltoppers were magnificent in upsetting the highly-touted Nor t h Quincy High combine in the quarter finals. Oliver Ames, as expected win' compete in the Class C state finals against Westwood. The North Easton· court combine edged Dartmouth, 67-63, in the semi-finals. While eyes are turned for one last glance at their favorite hardwood combines, there are, quietly preparing in the back­ ground, those who will be in the sports spotlight during the' Spring months. High school ath­ letes may participate in a variet)­ of sports during this Spring, ranging from baseball to tennia to track to golf. Several Sprlq Sports Spring' sports in high school differ from Fall and Winter sports in that they are participa­ tion rather than SPeCtator sports for the most part. Football has a large following. Not all grid enthusiasts can be players. Bas­ ketball, generally, has a large following. Everyone does not have the talent to put the ball in the hoop. Spectators are not present in large numbers at the Spring scholastic engagements. One reason is that there are more sports of varied interests in which boys can participate. Professional baseball players have already begun Spring training, but they have nothing on some high school baseball players. Many coaches have started their pitchers and catch­ ers practicing in their now un­ occupied gyms. Officially, base­ ball preparation in high school may begin March 1, but some mentors prefer to wait a few additional weeks until the weather is a little more favor­ able. To avoid arm problems most coaches don't allow their pitchers to throw outside of the gym until April. Olympics Arouse Interest March 15 is the day that the Principal's Association sets for the start of the track season. Track and field is a sport that many people don't seem to know too much about. As a conse­ quence it attracts little interest. Yet, among high school athletes track 1a becoming more and more popular. Perhaps this is due to the faet that more emphasis' and more eoverale is being given to the O~ia 8I1d, . . . H8Ult, . .

phasis on the individual rather than the team. True, a team spirit must exist

in track as in the other sports,

but, in track it is the individual

athlete that must excel. In track,

it is one contestant against all

the others. The trackster must

develop an acute sense of per­

sonal pride for it is only he that

can improve himself and drive

himself onward.

Battle lor Honors Since track and field are up­ coming scholastic sports, and since relatively little is said about them in comparison to other sports, we might explain the outline of area high school programs. As in the other sports, there are two leagues, the Bristol County and the Narry circuits. Each member of the league com­ petes against the other members in dual meets but actually the championship is not decided on a won-loss basis of dual meets. The title is decided by an all league meet in which all teams compete in all events on the same day, usually the end of May. The B.C.L. championship meet is a nine-event affair including the 100, 220 and 440 yard dashes, half-mile and mile runs and the half-mile relay. College ScholarshiPlf There are also three field events, namely, high jump, broad jump and shot put. The Narry League meet bas 14 events. It has competition in the pole vault, javelin and discus throws, .110 yard hurdles and two milenm in' addition to the . nine BCL events. A boy may participate in three events, two field and one track or vice versa. This·rule holds unless a boy participates in a distance event (anything over a quarter mile) and then he may only take part in one track and one field event. We hear and read of outstand­ ing high school football and bas­ ketball players winning scholar­ ships to colleges but we do not hear much concerning track scholarships. But the truth is that many colleges offer scholar­ ships for track as they do for football or basketball. Patenaude and Meehan This area has produced many· athletes of exceptionable ability that havegohe' on to compete in college, and, in some cases, to participate in the pro ranks. Paul Patnaude of Fairhaven' and Bill Meehan of Oliver Ames in North Easton are area prod­ ucts who have established them­ selves not only top track ath­ letes in the State but in the East. They have competed in national amateur meets against the best in the country. Both Patnaude and Meehan . are distance runners. Pablaude seems to prefer the two-mile run while Meehan likes he half-mile. Because of their success in recent national meets, both are being mentioned as possible Olympic candidates. Charaeter Builder We are glad to see track gain­ ing interest, not because it take. anything away from other sports but because more boys may par­ ticipate and derive the benefit. that now from good, clean com­ petitive athletics.

Pope Returns Lepanto Battle Flag To Turkish Leaders ANKARA (NC)-A battle flag seized from a Turkish ship by Christian forces during the naval battle of Lepanto, Oct. 7, 1571, has been turned over to the Turkish government by Pope Paul VI as a gesture of good will. The flag which for centuries hung in the basilica of St. Mary Major in Rome was presented to Turkish Foreign Minister Hasan Esad Isik by Archbishop Francesco Lardone, Apostolic Internuncio to Turkey. With the flag went an apos­ tolic brief signed by Pope Paul in which he explained his ges­ ture as an effort to "transform an ancient war trophy into an instrument of harmony and peace." The Pope recalled the modern friendly relations between Tur­ key and the Church and attrib­ uted the good measure of change to efforts of his predecessor Pope John XXIII who had been Apostolic Delegate to that coun­ try before becoming Pope.

Confirms Prisoners TERRE HAUTE (NC)-Arch­ bishop Paul C. Schulte of Indian­ apolis administered Confirma­ tion to 11 inmates, including three recent converts in the U. S. Penitentiary chapel here in Indiana.

Commenting on the gesture L'Osservatore Romano, Vatican City daily, said: "To restore a trophy taken in battle does not dim the' glory and the signifi­ cance of an ancient victory and certainly does not deny the gen­ erosity of those who four cen­ turies ago gave their lives under the shadow of the great stand­ ard on' which the figure of Christ on the Cross dominated. "It only means a sincere. de­ sire for peace, faith in good will and the· hope that contact found­ ed on this basis in mutual and loyal respect may enliven in everyone the awareness of su­ preme values."
