VATICAN CITY (NC)-The Congregation of the Coun­ has ruled that a pel'son would sin gravely, in,regard to f)be prescriptions on fast and abstinence, only if he failed to ~sel've a significant part of the 'new rulings as a whole.

BELFAST (NC) - Those who want to leave the church because they are impatient over the slowness of in­ stitutional 'changes "should ask themselves what kind of alle­ giance they really have toward the Church, and what is the quality of their faith," Bishop William Philbin told the annual meeting of the Diocesan Truth Society.

VO,ticon Answers Bishops On Liturgy Requests WASHINGTON (NC)-The ©oncilium, the Vatican's JilIostconciliar. liturgical com­ mission, answered the re~ (Qluests asked of it last November by the National Conference of Catholic Bishops. Most of the requests were -ap­ Iltll'Oved by the Vatican Commis­ o!on. The request to experiment with the Ordinary of the Mass, Decently revised by the Concil­ B1lllIn, was postponed for the Iltlresf!nt. The request for use of 3be vernacular in the Canon of the Mass was not treated. The new liturgical changes, ])4'rmitted in the United States lI.!l'C the followine:

Supplementary optional read­ ings for weekday Masses; Approval of five Bible trans­ lations for these readings for weekday use only; Recitation of the "silent parts" of the C&f\on of the Mass aloud. or the chanting of these texts, following the pattern already ap­ proved for concelebrated Masses; Use of prose translations of the five "sequences" from "Hymns of the Roman liturgy" by J. Connelly, as alternatives to the metrical translations already ap­ proved; The sequence "Dies Irae" is left to the choice of the celebrant illl Masses where it must now be included;

The Nicene Creed may be re­ cited without chant in Masses which are otherwise considered to be sung Masses. The AposHes' Creed may be submitted for the Nicene Creed in Masses with a congregation of deaf persons (because of the dif­ ficulty of "reciting" the longer creed in the sign language.L Weekday Readings Archbishop Paul J.

When the judges deci­ alons were tallied, several tie scores developed, resulting in the awarding of separate tro­ phies in two divisions. The championship in the ele­ mentary school division went to St. John's of Attleboro and St. Mary's of Norton in a split deci­ sion. Sacred Heart of Fall River took second place honors; and St. Joseph's of Attleboro finished third. In the parish CYO division, top honors went to St. John of God of Somerset. A split decision de­ veloped in the second place berth, and trophies were award­ ed to both St. Mathieu's of Fall River and St. Michael's of Swan­ sea. Third place honors went to Immaculate Conception of North Easton. DA First The high school division saw Dominican Academy of Fall River capture first place; while Bishop Stang of Dartmouth and Bishop Feehan of Attleboro fin­ ished second and third. Each team was given four m.inutes to perform on the oourt, while a team of eight :judges scored on enunciation, originality, coordination and ap­ pearance. The top three winners in the parish CYO and high school di­ Yisions will represent the Dio­ cese of Fall River at the New England CYO Competition, in Manchester, N. H., Sunday, April 00.

desperately needs. There are clmferences with her and her ,parents. Provisions are made for her care during pregnancy and through delivery. A boarding home is found, if that is what she and her family want, to get her out of her home town during the long months she has to wait. Then she nor­ mally is sent to St. Margaret's ' Home in Dorchester for the last "three months to four weeks." Fairness in Procedure During her waiting period. so­ cial workers talk to the young woman. They give her informa­ tion on both sides of the question she' must face, whether to keep her child or relinquish it for adoption. Her decision, however; "must be her own," LVIr. Clements em­ phasizes. "By law, she alone can decide. The father has no rights. "Whatever her decision, she can not make it official until after the child's birth. She may not sign papers giving up the child until then," Meanwhile, as the unwed mother-to-be is given the help she needs, Mr. Clements has selected a couple he feels would be the right parents for the baby if the mother places it for adop­ tion. "About 50 per cent of the babies we placed last year went to couples within the first month after 'birth," he says. "Selecting "parents" is a diffi­ cult job in itself. Catholic Wel­ fare considers age - "We say 40ish, but it's not .a hard and fast rule"-financial status, although "We don't put a, price tag, on a. baby. We don't think a couple would try to adopt a child if they couldn't support it," Backl:'rounds Matched They try to match "as closely as possible" backgrounds, gen­ eral physical characteristics and .3 variety of other things. However, the rule book can be tossed out on occasion. Biggest factor is the "adoptability" of couples is whether they really want a child, because, "this is 'a human soul we're dealing with," The baby, if placed for adop­ tion by the mother, is examined by a doctor. The new parents­ to- be are notified they are about to have a child. The heartbrealc of the unwed mother may never be eased. However, if she could see the joy of her baby's new parents,

The baby and parents meet for the first time at St. Mary's Home. "The man paces the floor, he 'has the same reaction as· an ex­ pectant f~ther in a hospital wait­ iAg roGm," Mr. Clements says. Tohei:r baby is placed in the new- mother's arms. She .and her husband walk down the steps to­ their car and he :helps her get settle«i. "They came to the home a couple. They leave a family." The adoption is not final for & year, but for the majority of adoptive parents, their new lives dawned the day a child was laid in their a.rms.

The Easter Vigil centers the attention of the faithful upon the great fact of their Baptism. The blessing of the baptismal water, the solemn manner of renewing the bap­ tismal promises, the 'association of Baptism with Easter -all these bring a new appreciation of Baptism to the minds of those who would learn from the Liturgy. The Church in her Easter Vigil teaches'that an aware­ ness of one's own Baptism can change an entire)ife. The Church teaches' that in Baptism we share in the death of Christ. "Do you not know that all we who have been baptized into Christ Jesus have been baptized, into his death? For we were buried with Him by means of Baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ has arisen from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we also may walk in the newness of life. For if we have been united with Him in the likeness of His death, we shall be so in the likeliess of His resurrection also." , This sharing in the death of Christ so that we might share in His Resurrection is not a fact that happened once at our own Baptism and then is no more. The death and resurrection effected by onr Baptism are meant to guide and control and change our lives as long as we live. The effects 'Of Baptism must be constantly recalled and renewed if we are to be true Christions-dead to ourselves and living in Christ. The Easter Vigil spells this out to us in the Lessons.

Carm., of the Catholic University of America, Washing­ ton, D.

Experimenting with his audi­ ence, Father Murphy shouted, "Jonah," and got the immediate ar;lswer, "whale." He said ,that 'this is a typical response, but one which misses the point of the Book of Jonah completely. ,',' He called the book a "satire about a bigoted prophet," and said that he probably would d,is­ agree with those who believed that Jonah actually lived.

This comes from an an­ "praise the Lord." Throughout the ages and' throughout the world, this Springtime feast of renewed life has been a natural wit h man. The very name, Easter in English and the German Ostern, are from a comm 0 nor i gin (Eostur, Eastur, 0 s tar a) meaning "season of the rising sun," since the sun rises in the East or Ost. , Many of the customs we follow today stem 'from ancient rites and have been adapted to Christianity since the, time of Christ's resurrection. New ClothGlS For instance, at your house as 'at ou:'~, a_nd as it has been throughout the world, Easter Da~' usually brings a gathering of family and a big meal-dinner or a long brunch. , The children love their, own miniature parade in new duds. This new clothes bit comes down from the time when early Christians wore their white garments of new linen symbolizing new life in the Lord. From this came the belief that Ulluck would follow if one could afford new clotl:ting and refused to wear it. Hence the Irish saying, "For Christmas, food and drink; for Easter, new clothes."

NEWBURYPORT (NC)-Paro ents of children attending Im~ maculate Conception elementa11P school here have agr~ed to fur­ nish sufficient funds to pay a lay teacher's salary in order to keeE,) classes in session. The possibility of closing the parish school was disclosed at a meeting for parishioners, when it was explained that the trallsfelI' of a teaching nun next 'fall woullli drastically curtail the teachin(; staff. To l1eplace the n-un, a lay teacher would have to be hired., and the expense would be too great for the parish. Father Thomas P. Lane, pasto!', was informed by parents that they are welling to pay the extro costs by raising the tuition ' of children now attending the school. There axe currently three lay teachers on the faculty of the school, which has been staffed by the Sisters of Charity ofi Nazareth for 85 years. They now teach 326 pupils.

Well, my little boy showed up &is week and I now own two ~ckages of zinnias, one of asters, one marigold and a package of fulttuce seeds. Nothing very ex­ citing, but a sure start on a new ~son. My little helper, Melissa, was eager to get started, so we o~w have the seeds in flats un­ ~r the fluorescent lights in the <!:ellar. For those of you who are Illew to seed growing, we outline @Ie following method with which we have had unfailing success. Immerse in Water We fill flats or plant pots willi cme part sand, one part peat moSD ahd one part garden soil whieilh 7<le mix thoroughly and soak for twa or thee days by placing them UI 'a flat pan of water. The'water ooaks up through the pots ·lind. flats until they are thoroughly saturated. . "',At this point we dust the flats willi a pinch of fungicide. to pre-­ vent against damping off and. then sow the seed as per the directions on the package. - From this point on there is ~ry little to, do except keep ~ .oil moist enough to' prevent the seeds, from drying. We have fuun4 that the original· soaking is usually sufficient to keep the flCeds moist,' but occasionally i;t may be necessary to immerse the lIats and pOts in water for short periods of time.

This whole procedure may se-em complicated on paper, but if it 'Were followed step by step it would be quite simple. The most important thing to be con-o sidered is that there is a great deal of joy to be had from grl>w­ ing plants from seed. I have heard that Ernest Hemingway once said that there were two things which were a constant source of wonderment to him and one of these was the fact that daffodils appeared every Spring. For me there is as much wonderment in the an-. nual growth and death of a flowering plant from a minute seed. . Pineapple Cream Torte 1 pkg.

College to Continue Experlmento~ Sclhool WEBSTER GROVES (NC)­ Webster Cl>llege bas reyersed ita decision to close its experimental grade school, College School; as the result of a demand by par­ ents and St. Louis area edu­ cators. Jacqueline Grennan, college president, said in :II letter to 1 Qrents whose children attend the school that it will remain in operation "as long as it con.­ tinues to make distinctive contri­ butions to the educational com­ munity· and is in keeping with the direction of future adminis­ trations and faculty of Webster College." College School was started in 1963 as an educational laboratory for 'experimentation in curricu­ lum development and teacher training. It has some 150 pupils: in grades one through seven, with about 20 to 24 children in each class.


Example of Prtests, Sisters Greatest , Influence on Vocations HUNTINGTON (NC) - The tireatest influence on vacations, according to 2l recent survey of 2,000 priests and 5,000 Sisters, is the example of priests and Sis­ ters themselves. The survey, published in Our Sunday Visitor, shows that 55 per cent of Catholic nuns in th,e U. S, admit this to be their great­ est influence in the ehoice of a religious career. Over 44 per cent of the priests indicated they chose the priesthood for' the same reason. The results of the national survey also show that family opposition remains a strong de­ terrent to religious life. About 20 per cent of the replies stated that the greatest obstacle parental oppositron.

Lent's Meaning Deepens for JMA, Prevost Students As They Present Passion Play As Felt by Youf1'h

THE ANCHOR- .­ Thurs., March 23, 1967

The meaning of Lent was deepened this year for mu­ dents of Prevost High and Jesus-Mary Academy, both Fall River by production of an original Passion Play. Titled "T'he 'Christus," it was presented last night in Jesus-Mary auditorium by C h r i s t ian Youth Movement members Rocha of Sacred Hearts Acad­ of the two' schools, and emy, Fall River; and Pauline Dumas, school' president at spanned the time between Jesus-Mary.

ROCHESTER (NC) - Suffra­ gan Bishop Paul MO,ore Jr., d! the Episcopal diocese of Wash­ ington, D. C., will be among speakers at the Pastoral Work­ shop. '67, to be held here from June Hi to 22. The theme of the workshop, which is under the patronage of Bishop Fulton J. Sheen of Rochester, is "The Church After the Council."

the Last Supper and the Cruci­ fixion. The play's purpose, said its student directors, was "to pre­ sent the Passion as seen and felt by youth." Costumes were tradi­ tional and dialogue was taken from the gospels. All work on the projects was by the students. Also presented was an adapta­ tion of the Tolstoi story "Where Love Is, God Is." Top mathematicians at Domin­ ican Academy have emerged as Joyce Macek, Denise Janson and Denise Turcotte. Top of the top, Joyce, will receive an award at the Fall River academy's class day exercises. In the recent regional math meet, Coyle High of Taunton came in first, with Bishop Stang of North Dartmouth placing sec­ ond and DA and Feehan tying for third position. Also at Feehan, juniors and seniors are anticipating an alum­ 1i dance, to be held from 8 to 11 jaturday night, April 1 at the Attleboro school. Present· upper­ classmen and alumni will attend the alumni-sponsored affair. Dances are big news every­ where, it seems, proving that Spring is really on the way de­ spite Winter's parting gifts of snow and ice in abundance. Diane Ratte heads the planning committee for DA's senior prom, slated for Friday, June 9; nearer at hand is a Prevost dance planned for Friday, March 31 at St. Anne's auditorium. At Mt. St. Mary's, Fall River, the magic date for the junior prom is Friday, May 26, and themes will be picked from such contenders as Showboat,. Some­ where My Love, Pink Panther, Lollipops and Roses and The Endless Summer. At this Wintry moment, who could resist. the lure of the last-named? Government Day Armand Gadbois, president of St. Anthony High School Debat­ ing Society, will represent the New Bedford school at student government day in Boston Fri­ day, April 7. He'll take the part of a district representative at the annual event, participated in by students from all Diocesan and public high schools in the Commonwealth. At a long-awaited quiz con­ test between Prevost and Jesus­ Mary students, Prevost emerged the winner. Participants in­ cluded, for Prevost, Paul and Normand Martel, Edmond Trem­ blay, and Wilfred 'Michaud; for Jesus-Mary, Diane Dugal, Char­ lotte Dube, Yvonne Berger and Collette Richards. And Dominican students began their volleyball season with a game at Somerset. Heading the DA squad is Elaine Fisette. Looking towards next year are Feehan girls, who have named Margie Masse and Kathy Lange as co-captains of the upcoming basketball team. Mt. St. Mary volleyball co-captains are Jo­ Ann Chrupcala and Donna Ferreira. Scholarship Winners Cheers for Mary Lennon of Mt. St. Mary and Edmond Trem­ bla'y of Prevost. Mary has won a one-year secretarial scholarship to the Katharine Gibbs School of Pro'vidence, including a full tuition grant of $1350 and a cash award of $200. Her alternates for the award are Bernadette

As for Edmond, he's been named recipient of a $1600 scholarship and $800 government grant from Boston College. The St. Anthony High student council organized a chess club, with hugely successful results. The problem now? Where to find boards and chessmen for all the aspiring players. At SHA Fall River the. Narry Debate League recently held its third round with SHA's affirma­ tive team defeating Coyle but losing to their. sister school, Bishop Cassidy. SHA's negative team defeated Middletown but lost -to Holy Family. And 1-1 records were made by both af­ firmative and negative debaters from Prevost, where the team is . now preparing for the Stonehill College Tournament slated for this Saturday. Unwecll Mothers Problems of the unwed mother were discussed by Sister Beatrice of St. Margaret's Hospital, Dor­ chester, with seniors at Bishop Cassidy High in '.Daunton. "Through her talk," not e Anchor reporters Cheryl McCaf­ frey and Barbara O'Brien, "the girls were brought to understan.d the emotiomil torment gone through by one in this position and also that understanding and acceptance brings these mothers to a deeper perception of self­ worth, life and God." Also on the recent Cassidy agenda was a potluck supper sponsored by stu­ dent council members for their parents. Entertainment included skits on school life. Prevost has been playing host to Brother Patrick. Menard, F.I.C., former principal, who is now assistant general to the community's superior. On visita­ tion from the communl'ty's head­ quarters on the Channel Island of Jersey, he met with students and Brothers, recalling his many assignments at the Prevost gram­ mar and high schools. Ten Mt. St. Mary alumnae now novices in the Sisters of Mercy visited their' alma mater on Vocation Day, with their agen­ da including classroom visits, at­ tendance at Mass and an enter­ tainment program. Also at the .Mount, members of the school paper staff are rejoicing in a "first" rating awarded at the ann u a I Columbia Scholastic Press Association convention. A similar rating went to. the "Feehan Flash." To Attend M~etings Convention attendance is up­ coming for many Diocesan edu­ cators. The Diocese will" be well represented at next week's NCEA meeting in Atlantic City and also attracting many will be the National Catholic Music Education convention to be held the following week in New York City. At Dominican Academy mem­ bers 0': Le Cercle Francais are. readying a skit to present for members of the Cercle Litteraire which meets at the school. Ac­ tresses are Bernadette Rodrigues, Eileen Gauthier, and Janine Parent. Harriet Kelly will be the announcer. Also at "DA, Latin Week is being obser~ed by· Latin classes with discussion' of Roman 'cus­ toms. And the fateful Ides. of March were marked by a cere­ monial reenacting of the burial of Caesar, made as authentic as serious research allowed.

Catholic Effort Organizes Northeast Brazil Workers

VATICAN CITY (NC)-The head of the Vatican Secretariat for Promoting Christian Unity has praised the efforts in many countries to carry out the ecu­ menical council's Declaration on the Relations betwen Catholics and Non-Christian Religions.


From "Social Revolution in ·the New Latin America"

Edited by John J. Considine, M.M.

In northeast Brazil we are assisting a whole program of rural labor development with four technicians that we already have on the scene: a trade unionist, a cooperative expert, an agricultural economist and an agricultural en­ gineer in Recife. The rural Father Garcia of the Central labor movement of the American University followed Northeast, organized origin­ Bishop Prata. "I see that CLASC ally by the circulos operarios, isn't here," he said. "This is a represents a' tremendous effort on the part of the Catholic Church to get into the field of campesino de­ velopment.

This, in the brief time allotted to me, is the record l)f the Amer­ i.can labor movement to date in l.atin America. Jose Marti We consider Jose Marti of Cuba f<o be one of the great po­ litical philosophers of Latin America. He had some advice that many of us leaders of the American Institute for Free l.abor Development take to heart and try to practice in Latin America. He was the Abraham Lincoln of Latin America. He could coin a phrase. At one time 'he said as he observed the world, "EI nnundo se divide en don ramas: los. que aman y fundan, los que .odian y destruyen."-"The wocld divides itself into two branches: those who love and build, those who hate lIIld destroy." , We like to think we'are lov,..

Latin America, Bishop Prata of' La PJZ, Bolivia, asked for the, floor. "I appreciated verY much the wonderful explanation Mr. Doherty gave," he said, "but please forgive me if 1 voice a little criticism.

Among issues that could be dis­ cussed were those of state aiel to education and textbook support, he said. Strides in Understanding The cardinal noted that there have been many strides in mu­ tual understanding, citing' a re­ cent sl-mposium on .Judaism and Christianity at st. Joseph's Col­ lege in Philadelphia. However, he noted this discussion is just a beginning and said much pa­ tience, wisdom and determina­ tion will be required by all. "We cannot undo in a few years misunderstanding and pre­ judices among fellow Christian religions going back five and nine centuries," he said. "So what shall we say of our. mis­ understandi~gs with the Jews going back so many centuries more?"

include "dialogue with the world," Father Gregory Baum, .O.S.A.. told Methodist leaders here. Father Baum, who is associ­ ated with the Center of Ecumen­ ical Studies at St. Michael's Col­ lege, Toronto, Ont., was the key­ note speaker at the opening of . the Methodist Church's two-day conference on· "Educating for Ecumenism." Some 360 delegates attended. "It is through dialogue with the world," he declared, "that the Church is often redeemed from her preoccupations with in­ significant details and purely in­ stitutional questions." lllo:illem \Vorllll Problems Charging that "when Chris­ tians are among themselves, they may be tempted to deal eJl:­ clusively with problems of the past," Father Baum said: "It is here that the involvement of the churches in the larger issues of the human community acts as a factor of redemption. The prob­ lems of the modern world force the churches to face the present." He suggested that "many young people" believe the tradi­ tiona1 approach to "purely theo­ logical and institutional issues" in the dialogue between Chris­ tian churches "does not lead them to share in the larger issues of the human community." "I believe that our young peo­ ple in all the churches, especially at universities and colleges, be­ gin .to be impatient with the churches (I (I (I when they are mainly concerned with churchly questions," he said. ' Father Baum expressed the opinion that "Roman Catholic interest in ecumenism is intense in many parts of the world." He noted that "in the United States and Canada wide sections of the Christian population have been gripped by the new spirit." "In the Roman Catholic Church," he said, "we Ifind on every level the willingness for ecumenical cooperation and fel­ ~owship-on the level of theology and research, on the local level, on the episcopal level. The ecu­ menical movement has been so successful that it has changed a whole aspect of our national life." Again warning against exclu­ sive attention to "ecclesiastical problems," Father Baum said he considered it "of greatest impor­ tance for the future of the ecu­ menical movement that the ehurches involved in dialogue and cooperation show an ever­ growing concern for pFoblems that are problems for other peo­ ple too." -Ecumenism does not create D Christian club where men turn their backs on the world," he said. "Ecumenism brings Chris­ tians together as brothers so that, as a family, they can enter into oolidarity with the human com­ munity, bear the burden with others, and become more deeply united by serving others in the Dame of Christ."

BLAINE (NC)-The only lay parisb. business manager in the Minnenpolls-St. Paul archdiocese has predicted there will be more lay parish administrators in the future, and has pointed to sev­ eral improvements in parish operations accomplished during bis nine-month stay. Timothy Fahey became busi­ ness manager of St. Timothy's here last year. Since his term began, he has instituted an ac­ counting system, established a CCfltral purchasing and control syster which requires competi­

He is leaving the parish to take part in a business venture in Seattle, Wash:' The 35-year-old manager is a member of the National Associa­ tion of Church Business Admin­ istrators, a group which is com­ posed of the lay administrators of many Protestant churches.

Fahey predicted that lay man­ agers of Catholic parishes will be 'common in the future, and noted a fellowship . offered by the NACBA for a two-year course in church administration. Fahey pointed out that par­ ishes are often among the larg­ est business operations in 2n area.

door state cham­ pionshlp,South­ eastern n[assa­ chusetts Winter T rae k League an d a third


place finish in


the Boston Ath­ letic Association games. Kalperis, who expects competition from Dennis-Yar­ mouth, Dartmouth and Fair­ haven, thinks the league will be a little weaker than the Win­ ter Association due to the ab­ sence of Msgr. Coyle High of Taunton which will be partici­ pating in the Bristol County League and New Bedford High in the Greater Boston circuit. Coyle and New Bedford were the second and third place fin­ . isbers in the Association 'meet. Chance lor Many The conference teams will compete in the 15 major track events, in contrast to the larger Bristol County League whicb conducts only nine contests. The nine running events are the 100 and 220 yard dashes, the 440 and

880 yard runs, the mile and two

mile, also the high and low hur­ dles. The six field events include the high jump, broad jump, pole

vault, discus, javelin, and shot

put. The ru'e which restricts the

number of events in which a

squad may participate has little or no effect upon the depth­

aplenty Falmouth club. In many

instances, the rule restricting participation by one player in a limited number of events forces <!l coach to juggle his lineup in order to eke out the greatest

number of potential points.

But, all in all, the rule does

achieve its purpose in that it

gives more boys an opportunity to participate, and, it permits the astute coach to place his best athletes in certain events so as

to amass a greater number of

team points. Dodge and Porter In other words, a coach can avoid pitting his ace sprinter against the area's best by putting him in another event in which the team's top sprinter will not have to compete against the area's finest. By so doing, the points are spread more evenly in the team scoring with result­ ant closer matches. Fairhaven and Dartmouth ap­ pear as the only threats to Fal­

mouth. But, Fairhaven will find the going a bit tougher this sea­ son than it has in the past when it competed in the Bristol Coun­ ty loop which held contests in nine events. The Blue Devils this Spring will have to produce competitors in 15 events, not an easy task for Coach Mike Dodge. Fairhaven perennially has a strong runnning combine. It has Dot been as strong in the field events. Dartmouth, on the other hand, annually shows up well in dis­ tance events but seems to drop­ off, strength-wise, in the shorter runs. Coach Al Porter, one of the best hiBh school track men-

n problem this year in develop­ ing a club which will be 2S strong in the field events as it 1s In the running' matches. Talented Performers Just as in the case of Fair­ baven, Porter seems to find new talent in the Spring that fills the voids in his squad. Neither Dodge nor Porter are making any grandiose predictions about the up-coming season but past performances ought to be enough to put the competition on its guard. . A spotlight view of the league highlights individuals from al­ most every team, all potential record book performers. State ehampion~Pete'Bringhamof Fal­ mouth and Manny Pina of Old Rochester are the best of the 120 yard high hurdles, While Jack Carreiro stands alone in the 180 yard low hurdles. Kalperis claims his two hurdlers will be "tough to beat" in the league and also in the State meet in June. Wareham's Earl Mattois looms as the one to beat in the 100 and 220 but he can expect stiff com­ petition from Todd Walker of Dennis-Yarmouth and "Dingo" Pina of Old Rochester. BAA 300 champ Greg Anderson, also of the Clippers, is undoubtedly tops in the 220. Capable Di,stant Runners In the middle distance races, close contests are expected when Don Bumpus and Geoff Cahoon of Falmouth meet Carl Ventura of Dartmouth and Wareham's Reynolds Perry. The league also boasts five mllers capable of going the route in less than 4:50' and three two milers who can cover· the dis­ tance in close to. 10:00. The milers are Ed Rossi (Dart.), Tom Turkington and Alson' "Salty" Handy (Fal.), Mike Bear (D-Y), and Evert ;Karman . ·(Ware.). Freshman . M' ark Bringham, brother' of Clipper hurdler Pete, who won the Winter league's two mile, is expected to continue his dominance over 'league oppo­ nents. However both Jim King (Dart.) and Jim Peters, a Fal­ mouth teammate, could upset the 14 year old youngster on a given day. The league roster of field event specialists is headed by another State champion from Falmouth, Don' McLean who won the Class D pole vaulting title last season. Falmouth has been moved up to Class C in the state and McLean aspires to an­ nex the medal in that division before the season is completed. Ed Banks of Dennis-Yarmouth provides the only serious threat to McLean in the course of the regular season. Robinson Javelin Ace Carl Gonsalves (Fal.) and

Rich Harrison (Ware.) appear to have an edge on the circuit's high jumpers while the broad jump is up for grabs among the individual teams' premier sprin­ ters and hurdlers. In the weight department Dartmouth is a slight team' favorite. Most outstanding dis­ cus, shot put and javelin men in the league last year have' graduated leaving the coaches with the task of rebuilding this phase of their program. One noteworthy exception is John. Robinson of Dennis-Yarmouth who is one of the best javelin throwers in the state.

Strong Freshmen Insure Future BY JOE MIRANDA

When coach Phil Wetterland of the Southeastern Massachu­ setts Technological Institute took over basketball this year, his main objective was to build a formative hoop team. SMTI enjoyed a most success­ ful campaign, finishing with a 12-13 record in a year designated to finding new talent and pro­ ducing a good representative for the future. Wetterland, who coached Durfee College .and was an as­ s:stant at SMTI in the 1965-66 season, played the entire cam-, paign with underclasmen form­ ing the nucleus of his club. Made Good Progress In a building season, the measure of success 4s determined by the amount of progress and knowledge the newcomers have achieved. Wetterland and SMTI are well pleased with this sea­ son's club. The Corsairs were made up of four seniors, one junior, two sophomores and five freshmen. In many games SMTI started with three freshmen, a sopho­ more and senior. Although we are very satisfied at the way our club played, Wet­ terland said, the record does not indicate their efforts, During the season, injuries to key personnel were very costly. SMTI, which played all its home games at SMTI gym in New Bedford, opened a tough schedule Dec. 1 at Western New England College and closed at New York Tech in Long Island, March 4, improved with each outing. Co-captains Ken Leonard of New Bedford and Herb Mosko­ witz of Fall River and senior teammates John Donnelly of Fall River and Mike Manchester of Tiverton played a prominent role, helping the newcomers break into the college ranks this season. Players Returning Wetterland feels that the con­ fidence his underclassmen gained this year will be invaluable next season when the Corsairs em­ bark upon a similar schedule with the same personnel. Junior Gerry Almeida of Tiverton at six-feet will be the lone senior returning when Wet­ terland calls for tryouts in November. Dave Sypko, outstanding cen­ ter. with Somerset High in the Narry League, is 6-2 and Paul Fernandes, a 5-10 guard who played with New Bedford High in the Greater Boston League, are sophomores. Most gratifying to all con­ nected with SMTI basketball is the progress of·this year's fresh­ man players Richie Jalbert, Ger­ ry Moxley, Joe Skypeck, Larry O'Brien and Bill Hurlbut.

tremendous, the coach said. At the beginning of the caJlll~ paign, we turned the ball over a great number of times on violations, Wetterland noted adding that in one contest :ll~ the season's start, SMTI had 2!l turnovers. Of SMTI's 13 defeats, two were by two points and five others by less than seven points. This alone is an indicatioll thai! the Corsairs of Dartmouth wi]ll have to be reckoned with iJ.l 1967-68. SMTI showed championship form in stages during the sea­ son, once topping a strong Hus­ son combine and in the 31lnuall Holiday tournament, the COI'sail'S finished second. • Wetterland, a sound ·juc!ge oll basketball talent who posseses understanding in c6rrecti ng his newcomers' mistakes, noted thail his club was not consistent dur­ ing the campaign, but said that . this was a normal characteristic , with a young team. r SMTI has gained the basis of :l good basketball team and at the same time made a respectable showing during 1966-67.

Jewish Leaders

Hail Guidelines NEVI YORK (NC)-Two Jew­ fish leaders, Rabbi Marc lH. Tan­ nenbaum, director of intelTeli­ gious affairs, American Jewish Committee, and Dore Sch31'y of B'nai B'rith, lauded the guide­ Uines for Catholic-Jewish rela-' (Jions prepared by the U. S, Bish­ Gps'subcommission for Catholic­ Jewish affairs. Rabbi Tannenbaum said the guidelines "are "both a symbol of the significant 'growth in J'ewish-' Catholic understanding and ,a major contribution to stl'ength­ 011ing friendship and coopera­ tio'n." ' The guidelines, approved by &tie 16-member subcommission ~nd distributed to all Catholic ", bishops' in the United states, warn against proselytizing and recommend changes in textbooks i~ use in Catholic schools.' They also urge that relations be ad­ ~\, vanced on all levels, clerical and llay, academic and popular, reli­ gious and social: Rabbi Tannenbaum, who has played a prominent role in bet­ tering relations' from the Jewish side, said the guidelines "dl:mon­ strate an ,unparalleled sensiti vity to Jewish feelings and traditions ,in a way that would have been simply unthinkable a decade ago. Schary, national' chairman of the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith, said it was the first time "a document promulgated by an official Catholic Church body, spelled out in such detail the issues in Catholic-Jewi~h re­ lations."
