Bishop Conoolly's plea for a more generous response this veal' than ever before follows: "Am I my brother's keeper" (Genesis IV: 9) Beloved in Christ, The words we have chosen as eur text go back to the story of Creation. They we~e spoken, brazenly, to the Lord Himself, by Cain, eldest son of Adam and Eve. In a fit of jealousy, Cain killed his brother Abel, who seemed preferred by God. The Lord questioned Cain: "Where is Abel, your brother?" Cain re­ plied: "I do not know. Am I my brother's keeper?" Who would not agree that never be­ fore, or seldom since, has man reached such a depth of ig­ nominy? Yet, there are more than a few Cains in the world today. . They may not say what he said. But they kill with their indif­ ference to human need. They degrade themselves, and society as well, by shrugging off respon­ sibility for a brother in need. They do not murder in cold ~llood.

NEW YORK (NC) - Cheer­ leading at basketb3n is designed to mspire home teams to greater heights as well as demoralize the enemy. ' Sometimes it leads to a sticky situation, as Georgetown Uni­ versity of Washington, D, C., has learned. When the Boyan took the floor to face New Yorl~ Uni­ versity in Madison Square: Gar­ den here the Georgetown cheer­ ing section w& minus a "Seig Heil" .cheerleader dressec' as a nazi soldier and another dressed as an Arab. The costumed cheerleaders were in evidence., previo.. ~1.. ""'Y when the same two teams met in ,Washington and Georgetown dealt NYU a 104-73 walloping. NYU students interpreted the nazi-Arab type cheering as a re­ flection against the large num­ ber of Jewish students at NYU. Hershel Fink, an NYU student manager of the basketball team, said he protested the cheering to Tom my O'Keefe, Georgetown eoach, and several Hoya students at the scormg table. He said: ''The coach didn't reply aIlld the students reacted as if it were a big joke." Father Anthony J. Zeits, S.J;, . Georgetown ·directorof student personnel, dispatched F r a D k Keating, student body president, and Thomas Kane, campus pres­ ident, hereto apologize to NYU students and assure the nazlArab cheerleaders would be eon­ spicuous by their -absence at future Hoya-NYU encounters.

Father ZeUs denied the na2iArab cheerleading was intended' to be anti-Semitic. He termed it "a parody, a mockery - some.., thing you would find, on a grade-D late· show on TV." He added "they Were merely clown-:­ ing." "Anti - Semitism is a g a ins t Catholic teachings." Father Zeits said. "We have alumni, teachers and deans who are Jewish and we have friends who are' Jewish people. Georgetown would be acting against itself if it were' anti-Semitic." . Father Zeits said the "nazi" cheerleader had appeared at past Georgetown games and Will appeal at some future ones, but never again at an NYU game. He said l;~~ cheerleading student hasn't d.awn a single' protest from any of Georgetown's 600 Jewish students.

Jesuit Says U.S. Vietnam· Policy Basically Correct


Thurs., March 17, 1966

Extensio!!'l Society Issues Collegium

WASHINGTON (NC)-An authority on southeast Asia affairs told the House Foreign Affairs Committee here the U.S. policy in Vietnam "is basically correct;" "It is not only justifiable ,it is morally commendable," Fa.ther Daniel Lyons, S.J., told the legis­ draw all of his troops, and give lators. "It is a combination up all that he has been fighting of Christian charity and en­ for." "We fail to realize the great lightened self-defense. In the l!Nlst we failed to apply the Tru­ man Doctrine to Asia, except for South Korea. The failure had hid to our problems there today." . Father Lyons, now on leave hom Gonzaga University, Spo­ kane, Wash., is director of' the Free Pacific Association and founder of the Asian SpeakerS BjJreau With headquarters in New York. He makes frequent vips to southeast Asia. -Fi ve other members of the twPeakers bureau testified before the . committee investigating the Vietnam and Asian· situation­ Stephen C. Y. Pan of New York; Father Raymond J. de Jaegher from Formosa; Stefan Possony of Stanford University, and Maj. Gen. Thomas A. Lane, U. S. Army, retired, of this city. Dangerous Errors Father Lyons said failure to apply the Truman Doctrine tn Asia has resulted in "dangerous errors in varying degrees" in the present U.S. policy in southeast Asia He listed 22 "dangerous erro;s" which include the fol­ lowing: "Fear of Red China dominates an of our other policies, e.g., whether we should use the troops from Taiwan, and what target areas should be bombed." "We think that, I1ather than strength, will dis­ courage aggression." "We let our diplomats over­ ride such basic military deci­ sions as blockading Haiphong." "We underestimate the impor­ tance of the cold war front .-ithin the United States." Great Dangers "We base our policy on the mistaken notion that communist Russia is secretly on our side. The testimony of ex-Ambassador (George F.) Kennan to the Ful­ bright Committee on Feb. W, that it is more important to have a 'detente' with Russia than it is to win the war, is typical of this sad mistake." "We think the UN Secretary General U Thant, is impartial, Utat he is really interested in working toward a just peace, and that he is against 'wars of liberation.' " "We ·think that North Vietnam will give up easily, so we keep on granting sanctuary to Hai­ phong and Hanot" "We are under the illusion that a stalemate is somehow lDOing to make the enemy with-

He said the dispensation also applies to school personnel, including eafeteria 'Vorkers and faculty members, provided they eat in the school cafeteria on school days and during school hours only.

danger of having other wars of liberation commence while this war drags on intenninably, even , though we are committed to de­ fend 41 other nations at the same thne." . "We fail to realize that only Soviet Russia has the power to destroy us, and that we tempt the Kremlin by prolonging the war." Beginning of Enc1: "We fai: to realize that we can win the war within a year, but we underestimate our enemy if we think that negotiations can be had just for the asking. On the other hand, it is foolish to think that we will grow tired, but that they never will." "We fall to realize that if we eompromise in Vietnam, as we did in Laos in 1962, it will be the beginning of the end of the United States as the leader of the free world itself." "We fail to see that recogni­ tion of the Viet Cong means a postwar communist coalition government, something t hat would destroy all that we are fighting for." "We fall to realize that the critics of our basic policy are either uninformed or unrealistic, or that they may have a differ­ ent set of values. We fail to see that there is no reasonable al­ ternative to our basic policy in Vietnam. There will always be excuses for pulling out, or for not winning the war, but there are no good reasons for doing either one."

than the sentimental types ,of "dancing" we loved so much. But there are some offshoots of "the twist" now, which are not quite in this same harmless category. "The surf," and "!he dog" are at least one _step lower than "the twist" could ever get. And there are others. Real Purpose Actually, some of these off­ shoots of the twist compare quite favorably to the sort of dance which had previously been re­ stricted to honky-tonks and strip joints, and where o~ly the most down-and':'ou,t of paid en­ tertainers would attempt them. The obvious purpose of such dances was not "fun," or any­ thing like it. Every bald-headed paunchy customer, and every simple tourist who bought a ticket knew better than that. No, th,e purpose, as you and! I know so well, was simply to arouse pas­ sion, and nothing else. The ,pr-o­ fessional entertainer who did these dances couldn't have got­ ten the job otherwise. Another thing that gives me quite a chuckle is that these "fads" are started, not by life's successes, but by it!; failures­ the drop-Quts, the guys with, nothing better to do, the charac­ ters with no job and those who will never need a job, the "en­ tertainer" who needs a gimmick to keep from extinction. Innocent Little Girls It never ceases to ,amaze me that these kids can indulge in the sort of dancing which all the old pros know is calculated only to arouse human passion, with.. out ever ,tumblin'g to this fact until it's too late. Oh, the boys sense this, ,but some of these innocent little ,gifls seem 'to think they're ,only doing 'something cute but harm­ less. If they only knew, huh? The ironical thing is that this seems to give them .a certain type of flattedng "popularity." If they could only 'hear the way this "popularity" is described in bull sessions, huh? ' Keep the real teens, the gen­ uinely bright and maturing enes from being heard. You 'run across a lot of them who think like this girl writes for ,instance: "I don't twist even though I like to dance fast. I can see _ where it migh~ have possible bad effects on my partner or on any girl's partner.

Priest Becomes Staff Member


Ever since the New Deal days of the H130~s, Ameri­

eans have become familiar with the "alphabet" agencies

of the government, Thus children grow up eutting their teeth on such common ones as F.B.I. and C.I.A. and. are even at home with F.e.e.· and T.V.A. to say nothing of S.E.e. and NATO, SEATO a~d the rest. The theory is that it is· easier to' say and write a few letters than to spend the time and effort pronouncing a jaw-breaking all-explaining title. How many persons' would ·know what CRS·NCWC IItood for? . ' Those outside the United States' and 8eeing these letters on a bag of rice, a bundle of clothing, a package of medicine know that they mean life and health and the opportunity to live· yet a little while longer. American Catholics should Know that these letters mean Catholic Relief Services-National Catholic Welfare Conference. They mean that <:the Catholics of America are giving their Bishops and the Bishops' administrative agency-the National Catholic Welfare Conference-the means to combat hunger and disease and cold in every eorner of the world. ' . . . American Catholil:s should know that their support of the Bishops Relief Fund this Sunday means the CRS­ NCWC can continue to do for another year the work it has done for fifteen years-perform the corporal works of mercy which are and should be synonymous with Chris­ tianity. -' American Catholies should know that every dollar they give to the Bishops Relief Fund is multiplied eighteen times in the amount of food it buys, in the amount' of drugs supplied.' . American Catholics should know that these letters stand for the largest non-government voluntary :relief agency in the world. . American Catholics should further know that while .they should look with, pride on what they have done through CRS-NCWC, the Catholics of 'this affluent nation give individually little more than the equivalent price of a package of .cigarettes, haraly the admission price to a movie, about the priee of a hamburger' and soda. But to those outside our nation these letters mean someone does care and this in the mime of religion.' . These letters to them are an alphabet that means love.

.The days and. wee](s of Lent are slipping by. as they always and inevitably do. This is a Lent· that waS to be lived, according to the "aggiornamento" mentality of the Vatican Council' II Church, out of love rather than be­ cause of law. Now. is a good time for Catholics to pause and ask themselves how they have measured up to the Council call for 'responsibility, Christian' maturity. . Has their 'been more intense prayer, notieeable pen­ ance, greater concern for· personal and corporate holi­ ness? Or has there been a great deal of talk about the mature Christian with very little proof in acts of this? There is always danger, when: the ,eh'urch 'under­ 'takes one of her periodic' reformations of the human ele­ ment within herself, that there is great analysis, pene­ trating diagnosis, ,splen.did planning 'for the future, and ]~ttle presept act. . .

WASHINGTON (NC) - Hap­ penings elsewhere in the world in recent weerts have somewhat overshadowed III humanitarian project which, in some aspects, is the greatest effort of its kind in this nation's history-the re­ ception and relocation of Cuban refugees coming to the United States. Just how many Cubans have come to the United States to es­ cape fi-om communist Cuba c'an not be put down precisely. Since the program was more or less regularized and an airlift insti­ tuted on Dec. 1 more than 12,000 Cubans have entered thc coun­ try. But this has been reJat'vely recent, and long b2fore that Cubans came in smaH grOU[EJ in small boats, at their own consid­ erable risf{, in what one author­ ity on the matter has called "the Dunkirk of our day." It can be said, however, that more than 70 ~r cent of all those resettled in this country have been placed in dioceses throughout the country by the Catholic bishops, acting through the Department of Immigration of the National Catholic We1:fare Conference.

VATICAN CITY (NC)-Y1i. an audience "lith th~ prcsider.:: of the InternaUonal Catho~ic C:,a­ rities organization, Pope Pau] VI made the first in a series of practical arran~emcnts for al­ leviating the famine crisis in India. The Vatican City newspaper revealed that in addition to money Pope Paul sent (reported to 'be $100,000) he has made ar­ rangements to send 90 trucks of various sizes to transport rice and grain in India. The Indian goyernment had previ­ ously noted this was one of the most urgent items needed aside from food.




The commission noted that the general' usage in the United States starting on Passion Sun­ day permits English in almost all ,the priestly prayers said aloud or sung. Besides the col­ lect-type pray'er, this includes the preface and the prayer for peace and deliverance from evil which concludes the Lord's Prayer, as well as an the dia­ logue-tite salutations and re­ sponses between priest and people.

Atheist Oueries Law "Aakers ",

By Joseph and !}farilyn Roderick

There is a. line 'in My' Fair Lady which I am continually .Quoting to my wife, "Why can·t a w~man be more like a man?" Sometimes when the children have been particularly exasperating I ask myself, "Why can't chil<dlren be like us?" I will spare the women In talking to a home econom­ now, but as for the children, ics teacher recently about the "When they are good, they pupils' background in cooking are· very, very good, but before they reach a school cook­

when they are bad they are horrid." A horrId child in a garden is a nightmare. A destructive child can destroy 'years of labor in minutes. When George Washing- ' ,ton chopped down that cherry · tree he chopped down 'patient · waiting for fruit. ,20 or so spray­ 'logs. hours of pruning and fer­ ",tilizing a,n d cross-pollination and, worst of aU, years 'of, fruit · ,to come, I an afraid that had he been my child, he would have !lotten spanked good and hard. The only way I can find to make children and the garden compatible Is to allow them' to enjoy the garden and hope they .. will come to respect it. But what , does a child enjoy? ,Certainly not beauty. Children with aesthetic . ,appreciation are few, and" far between.' , t. I have found that· mine enjoy ,the food that comes 'from the garden. They can appreciate a strawberry and can be taught ,that if they mutilate llplant, : they will ,not have ,their straw­ '. berry to eat. If theil" minds do ,-,lilot appreciate ,agardenl their ., stomachs do. And> as anyone who deals with children knows, stomachs play a large part, in thei r activities. , .Of course some things have to , be sacrificed. It is Impossible to _grow a beautiful lawn where there are ebildren. Ugly rasp­ herry bushes must be planted where the .children can get to them without trampling over prize roses. Everything must be , planned so that it is within easy , reach of grasping fingers, other­

wise you cannot blame a child

for destroying something valu­

able in seeking a long, stalk :of

rhubarb, for instance.

Just as one must sacrifice some beauty In It home with children, so must one make al­ lowances in a garden. And yet what greater joy to a gardner than to see a child licking his red fingers after having had his fiU of raspberries, or smacking his lips with the tartness of cur­ rants, or eating a crunchy half­ ripe pear or baby cucumber right out of the garden. In the Kitchen There is a magnetic attraction for children when mother is eooking. They adore watching her, dipping their hands into the hatters, scraping the frosting from the mixing bowls and in general making a bit of nuisance of themselves. The natural curi­ osity of children combined with the aromas and tastes that are found in a kitchen matte this a perfect spot t(\ sta~ the very, , very young' future homemaker

on her way to competence.

ing class. I was antazed to learn that may have little, if any knowledge of even the most basic cooking techniques. It seems thaf we· indulge our children with electric toy ovens, popcorn machines that really pop and lollypop machines that turn out tasty candy. but when it comes to picldng up the basic skills of the' kitchen. we become as possessive, of our domain as the Russians are with, their Sputniks. H a vi n g children underfoot when you're cooking can be a nerve-wracking experience. but if you can spare perhaps an hour or so a week to share the kitchen. with them when your own work is done, you'll find it rewarding and they wiU leanl a great deal, along with fostering the,ir' nat­ ural curiosity in this direction. We have been letting our six­ year-old Meryl do some cooking over the past few months, first with mixes, because they are quite simple and yet incorporate tnany of the basic techniques of eooking, and then with 'simple recipes. The results have been surprisingly good, although' we have had one or two' 'failures. She is never allowed to work in the ,kitchen alone, although we have found that lately we have to interfere very little. The following are Meryl's tips for little cooks aged four up: (1).) Wash your hands and be . sure to get all the soap off them. (2.) Read the recipe and get everything out. Once daddy and I were cooking and we forgot vanilla and so our cookies did not taste so good. . (3.) Before you start mixing things, start your oven. (4.) Always have' a grownup help you, so you won't get burned or forget anything. ' (5.) Always have a towel on your lap or counter, so' you can wipe your hands when you need to. (6.) If you have to use butter in your recipe, let It stay out of the refrigerator for a while so it will be soft when you use it. (I use margarine instead of but­

WASHINGTON (NC) - l\'Us. Madalyn Murray O'H::Iir, athpist who successfully challen~ed prayer and Bible readin~ in public schools, has queried all members of the House on church-state issues. Mrs. O'Hair, opel'ati,,~ from Austin under the name of Soci­ ety of Separatists, said in a let­ ter that legislators who fail to respond will be thought of as opponents of the First Amend­ ment to the Constitution. This position, she warned, will be distributed in each Cdn­ gressman'spome district "by our action groups there." . ." She c1ainf,ed 75 mHlion Am~r­ , ieans do 'nbt go to church and that 6,811,000 are "out-and-out . atheists."

JERUSALEM (NC)-The, pj~ grimage of Pope Paul VI to the Holy Land early in 1964 was ap­ parently the spark of a new in­ flux of tourists into Jordan, cre­ ating a minor economic boom. Every day new groups of tou~ ists fly here from Europe, the United States and elsewhere, even in the off season. Hotels are busy. Buses and toul'ist guides have more than enough work. Many of those who arl'ive declare they were prompted to visit the ancient Christian shrines here as a result of the Pope's trip. The tourist influx has not only provided jobs, it has provided new funds for repair and mod­ ernizing the Jordanian city~ Tourist facilities have been greatly expanded. Barren hill­ sides are l:.looming with houses, hotels and places of business. Newly paved roads are carrying a heavier burden of traffic. Jerusalem is an important pilgrimage center for Islam, too. ­ The Dome of the Rock mosque, built on the site of King Solo­ mon's temple, is visited by thoU­ sands of' fervent Moslems each year. Unlike the wealthier Christians, however, Moslem pilgrims have contributed little to Jordan's new prosperity.

CQUe~~S ~'Clt'~pt Ne'-'''''o s.~~JtAl"':llnts WASHINGTON (NC) ­ A glimpse into the thoughts of Negro teenagers consider­ ing applications to Catholic

colleges and of the attitudes of the institutions is given in a re­ port published here. The unusual survey stems from questions which Negro teenagers asked two Josephite seminarians du'ring high school counseling sessions. The teenagers wanted infor­ mation beyond that available in co~lege catalogues. Questions such as: are there other Negro students on campus? Is there a significant Neg l' 0 community nearby? ,How welcome would I be? Is there special financial assistance for Negroes? The two Josephites took note of the questions, put them in a letter and sent it off to the na­ 'nation's Catholic colleges.

,My Little Prayer'

Is Big Success

CINCINNATI (NC) - One of the most successful prayers of modern times may be "My Little Prayer," written by the late Msgr, Raphael J. Markham, a former seminary professor here, and published by the Markham Prayer Card Apostolate here. In the 35 years since Msgr. Markham wrote the prayer ­ with its basic expressions of faith, hope, love and contrition -some 12 million copies have been distributed. It has been translated. into more than 40 languages, including pidgin En­ glish, and is available in Braille. Since Msgr. Markham's death in 1955, the prayer cards have been published bY the Francis­ ean Sisters of the Poor,' St. Clare Convent, 00 Compton Rd.. CiA­ einnaU. ~

Agency's Birth Control Policy Supporrt Hit WASHINGTON (NC) The National Catholic We1­ fare Conference Legal De--. partment has challenged the statutory authority of thc fed­ eral antipoverty agency to sup­ port birth control programs. "It is entirely clear that the Office of Economic Opportunity had no power and has no power under the Economic Opportunity Act to fund, sponsor, endorse o:r otherwise support programs crl birth control or 'family plaJ1lc> ning,'" the department 'says i:n a legal mem'Jrandum.

YOUR SUNDAY OFFERING WILL FEED THESE CHILDREN: In 80 countries of Latin America, Africa, and Asia, 23 million poverty-stricken and hungry men women and children receive U.S. surplus foods through the mass feeding programs of Catholic Reli~f Services-NCWC. But the distribution of foods-as in Helvecia, Argentina-is only .one phase of the worldwide charity carried on by the overseas aid 'agency of Amer­ ican Catholics. You can help with this global mercy program by contributing generously to the 20th annual Catholie Bishops' Overseas Relief Fund Appeal, on Sundav March 20th. NC Photo . •,

The memorandum reaches it<:! conclusion that the antipoverty· agency lacks authority to sup­ port birth control through exam­ ination of the Economic Opportunity Act, as adopted by Congress in 1964 and amendecll in 1965, and through a review of the legislative histol'y of t~ measure. The OEO is currently support­ ing a number of birth contl'oj projects included in local Com-­ munity Action Programs. It hae provided about $750,000 for sucill projects in 20 areas.

Plane Flies Relief To Viet Refugees

SAIGON (NC) - A British Royal Air Force plane came from Singapore to join U. S. and Vietnamese planes in transport­ ing relief supplies to refugees and others in dire need in cen­ tral Vietnam. The loads carried by the plane, a Beverley four-engine tactical transport aircraft, included 27,­ 800 pounds of foodstuffs and clothing from Catholic Relief Services-National Catholic Wel­ fare Conference. Stanley C. Garnett of Kansas City, Mo., as­ sistant director of CRS-NCWC in Vietnam, accompanied the shipment to two centers in the highlands. The plan also carried relief goods given by the Red Cross, Britain's OXFAM (Oxford Fam­ ine Relief), and War on Want, a British charitable organization.

It adds that it is "inconcei... able, in view of the prominenc~ of the question, that had thfl Congress desired to enact a pro<> gram of birth control, it would have left provision for it ~ vague phraseology or to termi­ nology under which discoverin(l of its intent would .be a gue&'r> work." ....

Two astounding things- happened. First, she a!ready has 260 members in her community and secondly, she has made 16,000 converts. Yes, 16,000 in 14 years! She and, the other sisters gather those dying of starvation, most of them from the gutters, and do what they can to help them or ease their last moments. How concerned is the, United States about vocations and converts? We have 'so very few. Yet this sister has both in abundance! Our converts in the United Statesaverage:two and one-half-per 'year, : per priest! Yet this sister averages' about seven a day, Our religious orders"place , expensive' advertisementS' in, magazines 'and newspapers and pray daily to stim­ ulatevocations. Yet young women, anxi~

ous 'to embrace poverty as a mission,

flock to this sister without any publicity.

Why? Because the Lord blesses the poor

in spirit. ­ Sharing'! Sacrificing! Loving the poor! These are the virtues tbat God blesses, Oh yes, we add up our daily Masses and COD\­ monions, but is the onb' sacrifice we' offer that of Christ oD tIre altar?'

Says Holy Name Men Anticipated

Council Decrees

THE ANCHOR-Diocese of Fall River-Thurs. Mar. ~1. 1966



Seoond Vatican Council did

:not make the Holy Name

Society an anachronism. III

fact, the society anticipated and


even prompted some of the re­ forms mapped out by the eouncil. That was the view expressed

by Louis C. Fink, special lay

eonsultant to the society's na­

tional headquarters, in an inter­

-view here.

Fink, an Atlanta bank execu­ tive, said the society was ready to adapt itself at the beginning of the council and was prepared to implement the council's de­ erees as soon as they were pro­ mulgated. "The society had already en- .

rolled the activists among Cath­

olic men," he said, "some five

million of them, accustomed to

'pouring out energies so that the

divine message of redemption

may be heard and welcomed by

nil men everywhere,' as stated in

the lay apostolate decree.

Work With Priests "Secondly, Holy Name men

were accustomed to working in

harness with parish priests.

which is also emphasized in the

decree. This is the way the Holy

Name Society has operated in

modern times."

Fink said many bishops at the

council already knew the needs

and desires of the laity from the

diocesan Holy Name unions

around the country.

And as soon as the council

ended, he said, the society began

to interpret its decrees through

regular parish and public meet­


"A second action was to lend the vast manpower resources of Holy Name to implementing the decrees," he added. "For in­ Btance, in hundreds of parishes. the pastor turned immediately to Holy Name men for lectors and commentators at Mass. So many Holy Name men became involved in this work, which in­ eluded ushers and the choir, that in some small parishes attend­ ance at corporate Communion was affected; the men were at other Masses."

TOLEDO (NC)-Bishop George J. Rehring of Toledo has called on his flock to use a "new type of Lent" to bring about in themselves '01 total. renewal of private and social conduct. S pea kin g of the "greater personal responsibility" empha­ sized throughout the Second Vatican CounciL the Ohio Ordi­ nary said the mentality of pen­ ance now should be broadened to include a complete "change in ourselves." Alter Ourselves While the new regulations do not diminish the old call for per­ sonal mod~ration, Bishop Reh­ ring stated, there has been added "another area in which one can fulfill the purpose of penance and at the same time improve oneself morally and religiously -the area of human relation­ ships."

God-like love for others, now we are called upon to repent of our wrong doing, to fill up the gaps in our conduct, to alter our­ selves, our thinking, our feel­ ings, our attitudes, our conduct and our manner of acting." Valuable Reward The Toledo Bishop has told his people such change "will require us to cultivate kindness, consid­ eration, love of fellowmen as God's children, a Christ-like charity, a genuine concern for the human needs of others. By introducing such change~ in ourselves, we will practice dis­ cipline that will reward us in self-improvement and in a val­ uable contribution to a more friendly neighborhood." Then finally there will be "no room for grievances, protests agitation and demonstrations ,: the Bishop noted. "When mor;l obligations are fulfilled civil rights are respected ami made secure."

SAN FRANCISCO (NC)-The reconciliation efforts begun be­ tween the churches of the East and West were dramatized here when Msgr. Mark J.

At the invitation of the paBm tor, he gave hiE blessing to an overflow congregation of OrthOo­ dox faithful. Emphasizing the mutual chafl­ ity and fraternal spirit that marked a joint declaration made in Rome and Constantinople last Dec. 7 by Pope Paul VI and 01'­ thodox Patriarch Athenagoras II of Istanbul, which "committed to oblivion" the excommunica­ tions which split East and West in 1054, Msgr. Hurley asked: "Is it too fanciful to say we would like to reaffinn here what happened in Constanti­ nople and Rome? May we, in ow humble and sincere way, reaf­ firm. here what was done 0iIll such a high level?"
