Sees Future of All Schools Closely Linked

WASHINGTON (NC) Catholic education's future is inextricably linked to ~,what is happening today

throughout American education, particularly in the troubled public school system. That's the evaluation of Msgr. James Donohue, director of the U.S. Catholic Conference ElemEntary and Secondary Division. Noting that public schools are beset by several crises-including a loss of community <;onfidence, lack of finances and "at !f°ast a mini-revolt by parents who are wondering whether this is all they can expect"-:"the Catholic educator believes the problems will cause dissatisfied parents to demand a positive altt:rnative to public education. "In the next decade more and more parents will demand a greater freedom of choice in ed· ucation, and when they do,. other options are going to open up," the prelate asserted. Those options, he predicted, will take the form 'of viable ncn-public schools operated by private and religio.us institutions, with parents receiving some pub·

lie assistance - perhaps through tuition vouchers-to enroll their chHdren. Msgr. Donohue noted that Catholic schools, which account for 83 per cent .of the total number of students enrolled in non-public schools, are in a unique position to present 'that alternative. But instead of merely compt-ting with the public schools, he feels Catholic schools should strive to become educational pacesetters, experimenting with innovative methods aimed at promoting the individual development of each pupil. "I hope the Catholic schools of the future will throw out the rule book and have the couragE- to experiment," said Msgr. Donohue, a former school superintendent of the Baltimore archdiocese. . Catholic schools, he' said, have failed to use their freedom to

In view of the recent public meeting held by- the Fall River School Committee, the Board of Educaion of the

ferent functions in churches around Rome. In the Fall River Diocese, Bishop James L. Connolly will also undertake a grueling schedule of pastoral activity characteristic of Holy Week. On Palm Sunday the Pope will bless the palms and celebrate Mass in St. Peter's at 10 A.M., a function open to the public. At noon the same day he will give his customary blessing from his window overlooking the square. On Holy Thursday, Pope Paul will journey ·across town to the major basilica of St. John Lateran, where he will say the Solemn Mass at 5 P.M.· and participate in the traditional "mandatum," the washing of feet, following the example of Christ washing the feet of the Apostles. Another of Rome's major basHcas,. St. Mary Major,' will be the scene of the Papal ceremony at 5 P.M. of Good Friday. The

Diocese of Fall River would like to issue a statement which it hopes will clarify some of the issues: The Shared Resources Plan compiled by us as members of the Board of Education and presE"nted to the Fall River School Committee by Reverend- Patrick J. O'Neill, Superintendent of Schools, includes the following: 1. We are requesting that the School Committee approve of an experiment of the plan in one school in Fall River for one year. 2. No child enrolled in the public school system of Fall River is involved in this plan. 3. The plan was prepared to assist the 'School Committee in arranging for continuity in the education of children who must bfl absorbed into the public school system as parochial schools in the city continue to close. 4. The plan will ease the tax burden that must be assumed by the taxpayers of Fall River as more children enter the public school system.

5. The plan would still retain the services of the religious t{oachers within the city and al-

Council Requests Pope h)' Review Cases of Disciplin·ed - Priests SAN DIEGO (NC) ' - The Nat ion a I Federation of Priests' Councils concluded its annual meeting here by electing new officers and setting a deadline for an answer on its request that Pope Paul VI review the case of 19 disciplined Washington priests. Father Frank Bonnike, pastor of St. Mary's Church in D~ Kalb, Ill., was chosen president of the federation. He is past president of the Rockford diocesan priests' senate. In their final plt:nary session, the delegates set April 20 as the deadline for a response to their

tional picture in the United States. "If the private schools can develop modern methods and new concepts, and become leaders in education, this should make the public schools examine their own house and, in turn, reorganize their system," he observed. "This certainly would help American education to become more healthy." Msgr. Donohue said public schools are currently facing an erosion of confidence over the quality of education offered their students. He noted that some of the nation's educational and political leaders including' former Health, Education and Welfare Secretary John Gardner and President Nixon - are posing hard questions about the effectiveness of public schools. Nixon, he said, asked in his recent message on education: "Do we

low parents a freedom of choice in educating their children. It has been noteo that mlmy of the fears that people have of the. Shared Resources Plan are ba~ed on a lack of knowledge of non-public education. As the Diocesan Boatd of Education we invite the public to visit our schools, talk with our teachers and parents and become familiar with the parochial system. As we face equally the issues and challenges that confront us, the Diocesan Board of Education asks consideration of the following: I. That this proposal is not r~..king anything new of the School Committee of Fall River; such plans are already working in various states in America. 2. That the Federal Government programs in our own city are an example of a cooperative system. 3. That the many strengths in each system can be welded together to make for better quality in education. 4. That the weaknesses in each svstem can diminish as a closer \vorking relationship is fostered. 5. That the children in the city C'f Fall River are being educated i!I the best American tradition.

really know how children learn?" Most of the complaints, the priest added, are coming from the community at large. "The concept that there is something sacrosanct about the public school system is not true anymore," he remarked. He cited discontent among middle class and suburban parents who claim their children aren't receiving the kind of education they expect from public schools, and from minority groups in the city who charge the system doesn't relate to their special needs. "Dissatisfied parents feel the public schools are developing attitudes toward life that don't correspond with the attitudes that the parents would like their children to have," Msgr. Donohue said. . He noted parents are blaming the public schools for a permissive philosophy among youth plus a rise in teenage drug abuse. As a result, he said, the American public is begim;ing to ask if a monopolistic school system is good for the nation. Turn to Page Six

Says People of God Need !Priests 'Not Involved in Secular Interests' VATICAN CITY (NC) - The people of God need priests who are "not involved in profane subjects and secular interests," Pope Paul told crowds in St. Peter's Square. Speaking from his window overlooking the square, the Pope told his listeners: "We would like you to pray now for priests, for their sanctity, for their loyalty, for their exclusive and total devotion to your service." The Pope also told the crowds: "The people of God need their priests to be shepherds and teachers, servants and. living saints, ,vho are all in and of Christ, not outside the ranks of

the people or of their needs and sufferings, but also not involved in profane subjects and secular interests." . Later the same day, the Pope went to a parish church on the outskirts of Rome to take part in his usual stational church observances . during Lent and to celeb'rate Mass for t.he workingclass residents of the area. In his sermon during the Mass, the Pope told the thousands gathered on the parish soccer fieid that he had been reflecting on the pieces of lunar rock that had recently been shown him by U. S.

Private Schoo,l Fjnanein,g By 'Norway Government . OSLO (NC)-The Norwegian government will no\y provide 70 per cent to 100 per cent of the operating costs of private schools, including Catholic institutions. There, are five Catholic schools in the country vyith a total of 538 students. All the private

schools that qualify for support under the new law have a total of 5,600' students. Schools for the handicapped will receive the 'greatest amount of financial assistance. Private sch'ools with counterparts in the public school system - such as high schools, elementary schools, vocational schools, agricultural schools - will receive 70% to 75% of operating costs. To Qualify To qualify for support, a school must either operate on an experimental basis, be based on a religious or ethical philosophy' or fill an educational need not covered by the public schools. The' Labor party opposed the bill. Its chairman, Trygve Bratteli, said he feared that supporting private schools will contribute to the disintegration of the public school system in Norway. A Catholic member of parliament, Lars Roar Langslet, claimed that the Labor party holds that "private schools have aright to survive, theoretically; however, practically, they are expected to die.'" Langslet added: "Private schools have their plaoe in the

Tells Observers British Holy Un.ion Principal Notes Thriving Report on Youth Condition of English Catholic Schools Activism Abroad

THE ANCHORThurs., Mar. 19, 1970

WASHINGTON (NC) The United States is paying increasing' attention to the activities of young people

ROME (Nq Impatience among Christians of all denominations with ecclesiastical structures was cited by a specialist in ecumenism here as a rapidly developing thrust toward church unity. Canon John Finlow, for the past five years director of the Anglican Center in Rome, said ecumenism seems to be developing along two lines, one on the hierarchical, or structural level, and the other on the popular level where there is unrest among the Christian people themselves. Canon Finloy is leaving the center to work in the U.S. He called the tensions between the structural and popular areas within Christianity a powerful force in the current drive toward unity, He cited unity "schemes" or mergers of churches now under way in various manners and degrees within Christendom.

around the world. Its diplomatic missions abroad have been instructed to make youth activism in its respective countries a regular part of its political reports to the State Department here. Ambassadors have been told that "the phenomenon of politicalIy aware youth should be routinely built in as a part of your mission's normal political reporting." , To underscQre the importance being placed upon this information, the department has told ambassadors that while they may have to reduce the volume of communications with Washington, because of cutbacks in personnel, "the 'phenomenon of, politicalIy aware youth" must not be neglected. Early Warning System U. S. observers will report not only on the influence, actual and potential, which young people have on changes that are occurring or may occur, but also on the impa~t that "rapid, unprecedented and recurring changes" are having on youth. The State Department wants to know about the role of youth, not so much in crisis situations, but "as harbingers or fndicotors of shifting norms, values, and attitudes in the larger. socities." They can be "a distant early warning system" of modifications in societies, it is maintained-anI;! such "modifications" will have an importance 'not pnly in the individual.countries but in international' politics .as welI. Basic Force The fulI significance of this policy might not be' readily apparent, but it should be recalIed that in the United States, wherethe young people have always been regarded as the nation's most precious resource, it is only relatively recently that their enormous potential for changing things has been properly appreciated. Now, on the international scene, the United States plans to keep iqformed pn ·how young people are thinking and acting in various countries, just as it has .always been informed about the "more traditional political, economic and social forces." Youth activism, in the U. S. and in foreign countries, is a basic force to be reckoned with today in the formulation of foreign policy.

If the panel fails to settle the Cllse, the complainant may appeal to Michigan's Catholic Board of Arbitration which includes. representativesfrom each of the five dioceses.

She is less cheerful, however, when she says that the number of volunteers has dwindled re-cently.

Girls at the Memorial Home are assigned to various sections, rotating every three months or so. In this way they meet many patients and learn a variety of tasks.

Seminary Professor Cites 'Crisis in the Pulp~f' CHICAGO (NC)-There is "a crisis in the pupilt" which revolves mostly around the content and quality of preaching. That's the view of Father William F. Jabusch, professor of homiletics at St. Mary of the Lake Seminary ill nearby Mundelin. "Lay people today are more critical of what Mass.' When 1 ask why, they 'The sermon did something they hear in church, and, say, fe( me.' priests are becoming increas"feople will often judge, ingly frustrated in trying to communicate their message," the seminary professor asserted. "For the first time, people are now starting to shop around for preachers in Catholic churches. They are calling rectories on Sundays specifically to find out who will or will not say a particular Moss," said Father Jabusch. "If the priest doesn't appeal to the person, as a speaker, or if most of the priests at a church don't appeal, lay Catholics will avoid either certain Masses or go to an entirely different parish to hear Mass. And it all seems to rest on the quality of the priest as a preacher.:' Father Jabusch is attempting to do something about what he thinks is the poor state of preaching in the church today. He has helped plan a clergy study week at the seminary, aimed at improving the "contemporary ministry" through study and application of effective mass communications techniques. Tolerance Lessening "People today seem not so much concerned with whether a priest is a great confessor or a Areat theologian," said Father Jabusch, "but with his preaching ability. What really hits them in the pit of their stomachs is to experience a bad liturgy on Sunday with abysmal preaching." ."It's 0flly, in the church system," Father Jabusch said, "that a man can be considered a professional communicator and homb 'out each Sunday-:-and still keep his job. He can give a continuously bad public presentation llnd yet there he is, Sunday after Sunday. And it's only the people who attend church who still stand for this, but even their tolerance is lessening." . Father Jabusch believes poor quality preaching may be one rehlted reason why younger people "turn off" to the Mass and the liturgy. "I've heard some young people say, 'This was a good

whether young or old, the entire liturgy of. the day by the quality of preaching or the priest's ability in reading aloud "the Canon 01 the Mass," he said. :,' The clergy study week on. communications will offer priests and seminarians an opportunity t.., hear prominent lecturers in th(' communicat.ions field, but al&o to develop their own preaching skills in work sessions. Father Jabusch believes priests are becoming increasingly concCl'ned about t~eir roles, as· communicators, especially as preachers. He 'P9inted out that laymen an, better educated today, are constantly exposed to professional communicators on radio and TV,' and, consequently, expect more from t.heir clergymen in their verbal communications. Unfa.r Comparisons And it can be tough on a priest, said Father Jabusch, because he can clearly see if he isn't coming through to his congregation just by noticing people "who are bored, frustrated and fiageting." " Priests are not always at fault, hcwever, if their congregation is unreceptive, Father Jabusch commented. "Quite often people simpI} don't like what they hear being said, especially if the subject is race relations, peace, antiSemitism or the Spanish-speaking." In this regard, Father. Jabusch feels a priest much preach the Gospel message as he sees it, "and that isn't an easy message if a priest is doing what he believes he must do. In some cases, pI iests are like prophets - and the history of prophets has not always been good; many had their heads cut off for what they said." Then, too, he observed, priests sometimes are unfairly compared with radio and TV professionals.

Christian Brothers Plan Staff Cut$ NEWARK (NC)-The Christian Brothers will affect a 50 per cent teaching staff cut at seven high schools in ,the New York-New Jersey area. Brother John Martin F.S.C., provincial, said the main reason for the withdrawal of the Brothers was because requested salary increases were refused. He said that up to now 'income from private schools staffed by the Brothers covered the major part of' costs for educating brothers-in-training, graduate studies for others and caring for retired Brothers. He said income from the private schools can no longer meet these costs because of the smaller number of Brothers at private schools and inflation. Brother Martin also cited problems caused by fewer vocations and the decision of a number of brothers to engage in special apostolates.

HAZEL SMITH resisting White Citizens' Council pressure over the years. Mrs. Smith is plumpish, talkative and at her best when elaborating. on the role of a free press today. In a recent interview at her home high on a wooded hill outside Lexington, she conceded that even those who write and read smear sheets against her "give me the credit of having the courage of my convictions." From the Bottom "The small town press can't set the Pentagon straight, maybe.

Oppose Decrease In Salary Grants SALISBURY (NC)-Rhodesia's Catholic bishops have joined with leaders of 20 church denominations here to appeal the government's proposed five per cent cut in salary grants to, teachers at African prill)ary schools. The salary cut threatens more than 500,000 students in 2,871 primary schools. Linked. to a government proposal to take over schools that cannot pay a full wage to teachers, the cut in salary grants is feared by many to be the first step in a government move to control all education here. According to the government proposal, schools In which teachers' salaries cannot be paid in full will be ineligible for any government money. The government plan does provide a way out of the financial bind, but religious leaders find it unacceptable. The government's solution: any organization that cantiot come up with the mon,ey to make up the five per cent salary cut can' relinquish control of the schools to local parents' committees.

But it can keep itself informed with the right kind of research and taking a stand for integrity," she said firmly. "The American people can't demand integrity in government unless they're going to have it in their own lives, and their own business. If it isn't there, then the whole thing is rotten and the whole thing gets corrupted. Corruption doesn't drift down from the White House. It starts from the bottom and goes up." . Mrs. Smith, whose husband is former executive director of Mississippi Action for Progress, writes hell" editorials and column "Through Hazel Eyes" on a variety of topics in addition to owning and editing The Advertiser and The Durant News in Holmes County, The Banner County Outlook, Flora, Miss., and The Northside Reporter in .Jackson, Miss.

The gravediggers went to work immediately burying more than 15,000 'bodies for which burial was delayed during the strike. The diggers will receive a $13a-week increase retroactive to Jan. 1 and an additional $10.50 pe,r week in July. They had asked for a $64-a-week raise over a two-year period. They will get $149.50 per week when the second increase takes place.

'Not in talk, but in action." . Marini said he hoped all that was changing, and he thought participation in the fast was an indication of a changing attitude.

MILWAUKEE (NC)-Catholic officials and organizations have criticized the decision of a threejudge Federal Court panel that part of Wisconsin's 51-year-old abortion law is unconstitutional. The ruling will be appealed. The ruling would allow doctors to perform abortions before the fetus has quickened (moved), which usually occurs in the third or fourth month of pregnancy. Archbishop William E. Cousins of Milwaukee said the' decision "is c1ea,rly against a generally ac!<riowledged principle that a fetus has a right to life." He said it was ironic that a fetus has proven legal rights, yet can be deprived of life. Wisconsin Citizens Concerned for the Unborn, an interdenominational group supported by the Catholic Physicians Guild, called the decision "deplorable" and "a disaster" from a medical standpoint. District Attorney E. Michael McCann said both the American' Medical Association and the Milwaukee Cou'1ty Medical Association are opposed to "abortions on c;lemand."

As April approaches the weather is still rather nippy and the prospect of getting out into~he garden is not too inviting. But there are worthwhile jobs that can be accomplished now. One of the most 'rewarding is the task of fertilizing while the ground is still frozen. The last of the hardy mums. We're entertaining a few lawn, the perennial garden friends this weekend and I plan and the rock garden should be fertilized now so that as tne ground thaws and the Spring rains arrive. what ever nutrients WI.; can make available for new growth will be present when that new growth begins. Lawns are best fertilized with n prepared lawn fertilizer mixture and a pre-set spreader. This can be done any time after this article appears! If a fertilizer can be used which incorporates a weed killer, so much the better. As far as the perennial gar('en and the rock garden are concerned, this is the perfect time to get them (ertilized. If the garden contains a mulch, this should be lifted, the fertilizer spread, and the mulch replaced. It is too early to remove ;; mulch completely. It is absolutely necessary, however, that the correct amount of fertilizer be used so as not to destroy any plants which may be fertilizer tender. The beauty of fertiliZing now is that the groun'd will incorporate the fertilizer naturally as it thaws, thus ensuring the gardenC'I' that his trouble will be worth w,hile. This is also a good time to put dc.;wn the specialty fertilizers such as azalea and rhododendron mixtures.

If I could have all my way, one section of the garden wo.uld be set aside for cutting flowers, for I like nothing better than bringing outdoors in; however, since Joe is the one in the family with a green thumb such decisions rest in his hands.

'Lawyer' 5 Law' 'Marriage Di~solution' Replaces Divorce In Iowa DES MOINES (NC) They don't call it divorce in Iowa any more. From now on, by an act of the state legilature, it's "dissolution of marriage." The new "no fault" law, passed by lopsided majorities in both the Senate and the House, scrapped the five grounds for divorce-adultery, desertion, felony conviction, alcoh0lism and cruel or inhumane treatment. The new dissolution of marriage law' provides the dissolution can b~ granted when there is "a breakdown of the marriage relationship to the extent that tne legitimate objects of matrimony have been destroyed and no reasonable likelihood that the marriage can be preserved." The legislation failed" to ,include a recommendation by religious leaders and social organizations for a family court sysfem throughout the state-a special justice in each judicial dis; trict to deal exclusively with domestic relations, problems, staffed by judges with expertise for handling such matters.

Priest Introduces Girl in Front Pew CASALE MONFERRATO (NC) -Father Pio, 9ttengo, parish priest in the village of Santo Stefano 'di MQnte,nagno, announced at two Sunday Masses that he planned to marry but hoped to stay in the priesthood. "The girl you see in the front pew ic; my fia'ncee," the 39-yearold priest told his congregation. "She is named Clara Panizzolo. She is of age and lives in Turin." The next day Bishop Giuseppe Angrisani of Casale Monferrato 'replaced Father Ottengo with 'an, other priest from a neighboring village.

The law does empower district court judges to establish a domestic relations division. The new law also provides that a mandatory attempt at reconciliation of the parties, specifying the final dissolution cannot be ordered by a court for at .least 90 days. The new law also provides either party cannot remarry without court consent for one year. Opponents of the new law characterized it as a "lawyer's law" which would increase divorces, as well as lawyers' fees. Proponents called it a progressive step. , Father Thomas Rhomberg, director of the, Dubuque archdiocese's Cath,olic Charities, speculated that the courts can make the new law work better than the old procedure, "especially if they will be careful to enforce the conciliation provisions." He said, re,moval by the new law of the old adversary system in the old procedure is a step forward. He also expressed disappointment that the family court provision was eliminated from the legislation. '

WASHINGTON (NC) - The United States Catholic Conference's policy making group on educational matters has applaud'ed President Nixon's message to' Congress favoring reform of the country's educational system. The statement by the conference group said it will put its Department of Education's full resources at the disposal of the President's 'c'ommission on school finance. The conference committee noted the country's Catholic schools face critical financial' problems, but added "we are determined to do all in our power to strengthen them." It added the President's message supports this determination. The 19-member committee on education is the governing body of the conference Department of Education and is responsible for recommending policy on education matters to the administrative board and the U. S. Catholic bishops. Auxiliary Bishop William E. McManus of Chicago is chairman of the committee which includes Father Michael P. Walsh S.J., Fordham University presi: dent; Philip H. Des Marais, former U. S. Department of Health. Education and Welfare official, now with Fordham's office of research services, and Dr. John Meng, president, Marymount College, New Rochelle, N. Y. Nixon also established by executive order a presidential commission on school finance to study the fiscal problems of public and nonpublic schools.

Says Events Today Confirm Prophecy LUANDA (NC) - The apparitions at Fatima foretold the current crisis of authority in the Church, Archbishop Manuel Nunes Gabriel of Luanda declared at a Lenten conference here in Angola. Referring to the 1917 appari· tions of the Blessed Virgin Mary to three young children at Fatima, Portugal, the prelate noted that "the children said they had a pre-vision of the Holy Father praying and weeping. Certain happenings in our days seem to bear out these words of the Fatima seers."

Student~

Make Demands PHILADELPHIA (NC) Black students, pressing for changes in the Philadelphia archdiocesan school systems, have presented a list of demands to Msgr. Edward T. Hughes, superintendent of schools. The demands are linked to black students protesting, the expulsion of a fellow student from Roman Catholic High School here. ' Willis Durham, 18, who was expelled for disciplinary reasons, charges he was expelled because he had attempted to organize Negro students at the school. The expulsion triggered a protest march by black students who also held a series of meetings at which they drew up their demands. They include: 'That ,black history courses "preferably taught by black teachers') be 'established; ,That black history be permitted as an elective major course of study in all archdiocesan l)igh schools; That black students be allowed to form Black Student Unions on school premises; ,That school codes be altered so that black students may wear Afro-American garb; , 'Our Catholic Family' That students be given holidays honoring Dr. Martin' Lutl1er King Jr. and Malcolm X; That school hours be shortened in order to allow disadvan: taged students more time to' earn money at part-time jobs. Msgr. ,Hughes said he would respond to the requests, with his .. answer being delivered to black student leaders and high school principals. This procedure is followed because the students, and representatives of the National Association for Advancement of Colored People who are backing them, have been adamant that the controversy stay out of the press and be resolved "in our Catholic family. . Durham was expelled after ,two previous suspensions for dis. ciplinary reasons. Both times, his parents had discussed the action with Roman Catholic High officials, and he had been reinstated. School authorities told newsmen that Durham was dismissed after "a breach of discipline which involved physical harm to another student."

LONDON (NC)-A Cath- ' olic bishop has suggested that in a united CatholicAnglican Church under the

primacy of the. pope, the pope would become patriarch of the Western, or Latin, rite and the Anglican archbishop of Canterbury patriarch of the English rite. The suggestion was made by Auxiliary ,Bishop Christopher Butler, 0.S.8., of Westminster in an article in the Tablet, a Catholic weekly review here. Bishop Butler was a partid-, pant in the first meeting of the Joint Anglican-Catholic Permament Theol.ogical Commission, which met in January at Windsor. In his article, Bishop Butler cited the Second Vatican Council's Decree on, Ecumenism, stressing its recognition of the Anglican communion as a special case among the separated Western churches.

British Warned Of Euthanasia Death Centers

LONDON (NC) - Britain may have to establish "municipal death centers" if a movement to legalize euthanasia or "mercy killing" is successful, a professor of midwifery told the newly formed Human Rights Society. The society was created to fight efforts to, introduce a euthanasia bill in Parliament. Prof. Ian Donald of Glasgow University said that, since abortion was legalized in Britain two years ago, authorities are already finding it difficult to obtain enough doctors to act as "execu• tioners on ·the National Health Service, so it has been suggested that government abortion centers be set up to fill the gap." "If a euthanasia bill is passed by Parliament the authorities would find it even more difficult tn get collaborators, and they coold find it necessary to set up municipal death centers," warned Donald. increasingly Concerned Such centers, he said, would presumably be staffed by trained persons who would not be doctors.

Is ,It Inevitable that Rich Get Richer, .Poor Poorer? By Barbara Ward, When the so-called Tax Reform Bilf was first discussed last year, many corpmentators warned the country of. the possible effect of its proposals for very large reductIons in taxes. The Bill is now passed and the effects have been documented for us in the ReC schools. How can such a disproport of the President's oun- portion come about? ' , cil of Economic Advisers. The answer lies in,large meli- , This Report, for the first sure in some other' fjgllres giv~n time looks forward over the likely state of the ecpnomy until the middle of the Seventies.,.. By 1975, so the projection goes," America's gross national product (the sum of goods and services available) will have risen from $932' billions (the 1969 figure) to $1,220 billions. This in· " crease means that etween now and, 1975, the growth of wealth, over and above the present level' of GNP, will put about $800 , d billions more in goods an services at the disposal of the Amer~ I' can people. Allowing, for the 'rise in population, one can say that there will be over half as f ' I much again, per head 0 popu ation, in 1975 a~ in 1970. Won't" Be That Way , One's first reaction, particularly as a 'Christi,an citizen, is no doubt to say:' now we can really get on with the undone jobs in our community. Now we can really rebuild the ghettoes, see that no one is hungry, that education is upgraded,', that we can swim in 'our' rivers and breathe our air. With half as much again as we have now, there is elbow room both for maintaining our own standard of living and for doing something about the underdeveloped world as we)1. There migh~ even be a modest one per cent of GNP to , spare for the poor in other lands. 'But this is not ,at all how things are to work out. The cumulative effect of the tax reliefs will have reduced annual federal revenue by about $12 billion by 1975. Of this, it will. be re. called, nearly $4 billions goes in relief to people with incomes above $15,000 a year. The Pres,ident's own estimate of the money available for fresh public programs by mid-decade is about $20 billions. But ·if a new, round of ABM's, MIRV's-or any other still nameless ,exercise in "over-' kill"-has gone 'into operation, say, by next year, it could well be that the $20 billion will be quickly swallowed up. 'Indeed, the Council of Economic Advisers expect no "surplus" of any ' kind until 1973. So we are left with the curious question. Some $800 billions are to be added to America's resources., But the amount available for' new social programs, is estimated to be only one-fortieth of the extra"wealth-one-fortieth for cities and homes and conservation and food stamps and new

"The Nomad Bishop"

Criticizes Little .Presure (;roups'

"I just pack. up my tent and' move with tribe!" And with that single statement, a recent visitor to our National. Office summed up his work among five tribes in northern. Africa. "I am in charge of this diocese in which the people -are nomads. Their only source of income is in raising cattle, goats,and sheep. ~ut because of the arid land and ·HtJge desert areas•. the people must be constantly on· the move, searching for new grazing .lands. I have a small tent which I carry with me. When my people move,' I move!" ' . When this diocese was founded, in 1964, there was 110t a single Ioeal'Christian. Today, thanks to ttle efforts of 69 missionaries and several catechists'. brought ·in· from other' areas; the Christian population totals 1660. "Actually," the Bishop said, "there are twelve mission stations spaced throughout the 40,000 square mile diocese. These are 'home base' for the missionaries. From these stations the missionaries go out to' work among the tribes, traveling with them, if necessary. " "Our greatest problem," the Bishop continued, "Is lack of water. The people are' entirely dependent on the hInd to feed their herds, yet in some places only 8 inches of rain fall annually." "Our main goal right no~ is to build wells to insure a permanent water supply. Eventually, too, this would help to stabilize the. community-giving it a central point from which to localize their activities." What are these people like? ''They're wonderful!" the Bishop replied. Friendly, intelligent, and most responsive to religion. IF'or the most part they are animists, and some even worship the devil-a practice which gr'ew up from their fear of evil spirits. . Yet they are· eager to hear our "Good News" about Jesus, and we have high hopes for a solid' Christian community to develop here." . When asked about income for' his diocese, the Bishop reo sponded that funds from The Society for the Propagation of the Faith was his sole source of steady income. But even this pays for only one third of the expenses for his missionary persC?nnel. "We need funds,". the Bishop pleaded, "for our wells, funds for our schools, fun4s for medical supplies. We have come to beg fol' our poor nomads!" '. This Bishop's story could be multiplied 823 times over, for that is how many mission dioceses ,the Society supports. Will you help us help them?

Laity .Committee To Help Solve School Crisis NEW YORK (NC -Terrence Cardinal Cooke has recruited a 35-member committee to help solve a financial crisis facing 325 schools in the New York archdiocesan school system. Principal aim of the committee will be to raise funds from corporations, foundations and individuals to continue the educational program, particularly in schools in ghetto areas. Known as the Cardinal's Committe on Education, the group is similar in scope to a Cardinal's Committee for the Laity formed by the late Patrick, Cardinal Hayes in the I920s to help fund welfare and health programs for the poor. Cardinal Cooke acted at a time when New York ·State lawmakers are trying to resolve a program of state aid to nonpublic schools. Gov. Nelson' Rockefelled has said he favors assistance to private education. The state Board of Regents favors repeal of the Blaine Amendment in the' state constitution, which bans direct or, indirect aid to non public schools. For weeks legislators in Albany have been trying to agree on Ii plan for state aid to non public schools. Focus on Education Cardinal Cooke said the committee also would counsel him. on the most efficient ways to support the archdiocese's elementary and high school system and would serve as a communications channel between the cardinal and the community. Martin F. Shea, vice-president of Morgan Guaranty Trust Co., lind Thomas A. Coleman, partner in the Adler Coleman' 'arid Co. brokerage firm, were named cochairmen of the committee. T. Vincent Learson, IBM president, is chairman of the executive committee. Other members are industrial, professional and business men. "In the I970s," said Cardinal Cooke, "the major crisis in the Church in this archdiocese will focus on education. The survival of the school system, the development of religious education programs for all Catholics, and the Church's role in adult education are p.roblems which we must carefully study."

Agency Asks Study Of Private Schools

o

TRENTON (NC)-A ·federally financed research agency here urged a comprehensive study of private and parochial schools' needs. The recommendation was in a report on the Catholic educational system in this state compiled by the New Jersey Urban Schools Development Council. One of the functions of the council is to compile and distribute information on urban education problems. Its report. spotlighted Catholic school education trends which are likely to affect the public school system and discussed the pros and cons of aiding parochial schools. It suggested a study look into the status of non public education in New Jersey; current Catholic attitudes toward parochial schools; possible effects of state assjstance to private school systems; consequences to the state school system if present trends in private education continue, and factors which have led private schools to seek public assistance.

Retiring School Music Director Stays Active as Dartmouth Parish Organist By Ellen Andrew

To paraphrase. a familiar saying, "Old musicians never die; they just fade away." Edmund H. DesRosiers of North Dartmouth might be retiring in June as director of music in the Middle and Senior High Schools of Dartmouth. But that doesn't mean he will be out of touch with music, not by a long shot. "For an individual in retirement I plan to be quite active in music," Mr. D., as he affectionately is known, said. "Music has been too much a part 01' me over the years to let it pass me by now. ''I'll keep my hand in it all right, but not as much as in the past." Mr. DesRosiers presently is director of the Student Nurses Glee Club at St. LU,ke's Hospital and Tabor Academy Glee Club in Marion. He plays the organ; temporarily, for the 5 P.M. Mass at St. Julie's Parish Saturday in the Dartmouth High auditorium. "It's the least 1 can do to help out Ff:ther Hogan (the Rev. John F. Hogan, pastor) for the time being," he says. The Dartmouth music director is a graduate of Assumption. College in Worc:cster. He continued his musical studies at the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, majoring in piano and organ under the wellknown Charles Dennee and Homer Humphrey, harmony and theory with Warren Storey Smith and conducting and music education under Francis Findlay. Prominent in Greater New Bedford music affairs, Mr. D. is well remembered for 'his choral "nd musical direction in The Standard-Times Charities musicals. He has been' organist and choir director ·of . Sacred. Heart Church and Holy Naine~ Church and director of choral music at Sacred Hearts Academy from 1948 to 1958. DesRosiers al~o was featured organist in the Olympic Theater of New Bedford and played Publit:. theaters throughout New England. . He is a past president of the Greater New Bedford concert series. One of the highlights of hiS career was a wealth of experience acquired as association conductor of the North Shore Theater in Beverly. . DesRosiers developed the musilo program in the Dartmouth schools to a position of prominence in Southeastern Massachusetts. He enjoys his directorship of vocal and instrumental music, but finds instrumental mush:.: more chalIenging. The pride he has taken in the orchestra and marching .band at Dartmouth High is indicated

Request Permission For Missionaries LAGOS (NC) - The Nigerian Bishops' Conference has asked the government to allow nonNigerian missionaries to continue to work in Nigeria. These missionaries "do great spiritual and social good," the bishops said in a letter to Nigerian head of state, Maj. Gen. Yakubu Gowon. "Our people want them," the bishops said. "We want them. We need them." Gowon had earlier sent a letter to the bishops telling· them that they must condemn priests in Europe and America engaging in "anti-Nigeria acts." He said the priests are collecting funds for the reconstruction of Biafra, the former Eastern Region whose secession in 1967 led to a civil war that ended in January of this year.

Argentine Bishop Helps Strikers EL CONCHON (NC)-Strikers at a hydroelectric plant here cheered and hugged Bishop Jaime de Navares of Neuquen when he delivered a truckload of food from donors in the diocese. The donations were the first results of the bishop's television appeal on behalf of the strikers, whose reserves had been exhausted. The strike has the support of priests. The strike started when three workers' delegates to a bargaining group were replaced by Gov. Rodolfo Rosauer of Neuquen province, with three pro-government delegates. Rosauer finally resigned over the issue and Felipe Sapag, who is pro-labor, replaced him. Sapag, a Peronista, is the first follower of exiled President Juan Peron, to occupy a key post in the administration of President Juan Carlos Ongania. When Ongania's regime took over in 1966 it pledged to undertake a "social revolution," but its economic policies have come in for much criticism and workers have claimed that they have been harmed the most. Bishop de Navares said in his TV appeal that he is aware that some of his friends "are not sure whether or not they should help the striking workers." "My answer," he said, "is in the Gospel of Jesus: the Good Samaritan helped a man of a rival nation, yet he did not stop to ask what this man's ideas were. The Good Samaritan just helped him as if he were his brother."

ST. LOUIS (NC) - By' unanimous vote, the 90 delegates to the week-long Consultation on Church Union here' approved a plan which could result in the eventual formation of a single 25-million-member Church of Christ Uniting. Approval of the plan of union does not assure the merger of the nine participating Protestant denominations. Each delegation must take the plan to his own church for two years of study. The plan with any recommenda~ tions for change must be returned to the Consultation by Janul!ry 1972 for further refinement. ' As approved, the 145-page plan of union calls for a series of districts each comprising a number of local parishes which are strongly oriented to Christian social action. Participating in the ninth' annual COCU meeting here were the Episcopal Church, United Methodist, United Church of Christ, United Presbyterian Church in the U. S. (Southern), Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), Christian Methodist Episcopal, African Episcopal' and African Methodist Episcopal Zion. The delegates agreed that the proposed church should be headed by a bishop,' but. a preliminary proposal that the first bishop be black was voted down after some protests came from some Negro participants.

Former Viet Cong Captive Says Destruction Goal of Activists ST. LOUIS (NC)-Fear of increasing state control over human life and anger at violenceprone political reformers, both racial and governmental, emerged as the two dominant themes of speakers at the weekend conference of the Cardinal Mindszenty Foundation lind Twin Circle newspaper. The conference, which attracted some 400 persons, was a joint undertaking by Cardinal Mindszenty Foundation, an anticommunist organization headquartered here, and Twin CirCle, a national Cahtolic weekly newspaper. Dale Francis, one-time Methodist minister who is publisher of Twin Circle, warned in the conference's opening address that there is "a conspiracy against human life" in the U. S. which he said could ultimately lead to governmental determination of' who shall live. Convenient Banner Another speaker, Maj. James N. Rowe, a captive of the Viet' Cong for five years until his escape Dec. 31, 1968, said many activists for peace in this country are mainly interested in destroying our goverinment. "The inciters of riots a'nd disorder at home don't want peace," he said. "The war just gives them a convenient banner to wave." George S. Schuyler, black author and newspaperman, told the gathering that U. S. Negroes "have no desire to destroy capitalism; they only. wish to enjoy more of it. Most American Negroes," he said, "don't want black power-they want an even break." Rowe told the audience that

his imprisonment showed him there are three "faiths" necessary for survival-faith in God, . "because there. is no other place" to which to turn; faith in our country and government, "that it will stand the test of erosion from within and attack from without;" and faith in other American POWs, who were "the only friends one had." Lauds Nixon Policy In separate interviews with newsmen, Maj. Rowe denounced the peace' activists. "It's the guys up there (in Vietnam) getting shot at who really want pea~e­ las~ing peace, which can be assured only by securing Vietnam' against .a communist takeover » Don't think for a minute that the peace disturbances here would stop if the war ended." Rowe conceded that Ii military victory in South· Vietnam was no longer the objective of the government. He said President Nixon's Vietnamization policy-:. coupled with elimination of enemy sanctuaries in Laos, Cambodia and Thailand-offered the' best alternative to expanded American involvement in Southeast Asia. Schuyler described the Black Panther party as a "nihilistic organization." He said a "paramilitary organization of this sort is a danger to society regardless of color. They would not be tolerated i:1 any non-white country of which I know. "America has been getting softer and needs to get tougher with these subversives of high and low estate who patently. wish us ill and are prepared to go further than mere. wishing," Schuyler said.

NEW YORK (NC)-Tentative conta'cts between twq long-time ccclesiastical antagonists, the Pentecostals and· the Catholic Church, give promise of producing "one of the most exciting dialogues between Christians," a World Council of Churches official declared. . Education Gnp The Rev. Dr. Walter J. Hollenweger, evangelism secretary for the council's Division of World Mission and Evangelism and' one of thc leading authQrities on the Pentecostal mov'ement, said that some of the most significant contacts between Pentecostals and Catholics have taken place in Latin America, where two branches of Christendom have long viewed each other with deepest suspicion. According to Dr. Hollenweger, that suspicion is beginning to

INDORE (NC)-A bishop in a predominantly Hindu area has recommended that. priests be trained, for 'professional nonpriestly work as a means of curbing "frustration and idleness." In a note circulated' among Indian bishops, Dutch-born Bishop Francis Simons, S.V.D., claimed that the area is unfavorable for missionary work because the people in northern India still havc a strong attachment to Hinduism. The bishop suggested combining preparatory studies for the priesthood with a thorough professional training. In a recent Sunday address, Pope Paul said that the people of God need' priests who are "not involved in profane subjects and secular interests." After urging Catholics to pray for the loyalty of priests, the Pope said: "The people of God need their priests to be shepherds and teachers, servants and living saints, who are all in and of Christ, not outside the ranks of the people or of their needs and suffer.ings, but also not involved in profane subjects and sccular interests."

Mr. Jones gives a well articulated 'account of this extraordinary and all too little known band of heroes. We see them not only under fire but also at their ease (their St. Patrik's Day celebrations during campaigns were elaborate and ingeniouS) and at their prayers. But they and their achieve. ments are not presented in isolation. Rather, the author sets out a brief and lucid history of the Civil War and of political and social developments in the country, as background to his principal matter. His writing is direct, without ornament, but with professional polish. Czechoslovakia 1968 We are not told the name of the author of A Year Is Eight Months: Czechoslovakia' 1968 (Doubleday, 501 Franklin Ave., Garden City, N. Y. 11531. $5.95). But Tad Szulc, of The New York Times,' who contributes an introduction, says that he knows "Journalist M" and can vouch for him. Czechoslovakia, long after Stalin's death, was the most Stalinist of the satellites: Under the tight control. of men utterly subservient to the Soviets, it sank into economic doldrums and, suffered police rule. But then, in the late 1960's, certain stirrings were felt. The' intellectuals grew restive, the students revolted, and three streams of grievance conve~ged to create opposition: economic - stagnation, nationalist feelings and the suppression of rights. In late 1967, the Kremlin's man, Novotny, was suddenly an d surprisingly unseated.

Re«::ommell'id Simpler Annulment Process CANBERRA (NC)-Simplification of procepures in marriage annulment cases has been recommended by the Canon Law Society of Australia, which has asked the Australian bishops to petition the Holy See for immediate changes. .The 50 canon lawyers meeting here at their fourth annual convention commented that the present procedure for judging petitions for annulment requires three judges and an ·appeal by a defender of the marriage bond. The delegates considered both of these provisions often impractical or at least unnecessary. At present, canon law presumes that a marriage is valid until proven null. This means the defender of the bond is accorded a clear advantage in the present procedure of Church courtS. In this connection, the society called for an equalization of rights and advantages to both the defender of the bond and the petitioner's advocate.
