Cardinal Tells Delegates

Church Committed To Total Education "We are not glvmg up," proclaimed Terence Cardinal Cooke of New York as he viewed the widespread closing of schools and the depletion of religious in schools for the National Catholic Educational Association in convention in New York. ' The 67th annual convention with 10,000 delegates heard the Cardinal state that the Church has a commitment to total education and that it would carry it out from pre-school to adult programs.

"It is not true to say that the policy of the American Church with regard to the Catholic School System is· in doubt. . "It is not true to say that we are gradually getting out of the' business of education. . "It is not true to say that the vocation of religious teachers in Catholic schools is less important or less relevant than work in other apostolates," the Cardinal emphasized. "It is the mission of the Church to teach, to educate, to create a community of love and the Catholic school is certainly

one of the best means of achieving this," the prelate explained. He went on, "When the Catholic Church ceases to educate or ceases to try to develop a sense of community in her children, on that day she has become unfaithful to her Founder and unfaithful to the world' whose leaven and whose conscience she is appointed to be. "We recognize if we care to provide total education, there's a need for more efficient restructuring of resources and programs and for a more innovative use of personnel and facilities; for a more realistic system of research and planning. It can be done." The Cardinal warned against provincialism and isolationism as having "no place in the e<.!ucational world in the nineteen seventies. Provincialism could occur, the Cardinal stated, in the un'willingness "to share with parents their primary rights and obligations in the development and education of their youngsters." To help this, the Cardinal welcomed decentralization and community control. Is there isolation from public education? "Today the grave needs of all education in the nation," the prelate ,explained, "~all for a new, partnership of public and non-public educators throughout the United States." In reference to student demonstrations, the eminent New Yorker explained, "They may be trying to tell us something of their longing for oneness. It

KINGSTON (NC) - Education is .the primary task of the Church in t.he vital work of development, Archbishop John J. McEleney, S.J.,. of Kingston, Jamaica, said here. And education is the Church's greatest achievement in Jamaica, the Boston-born archbishop told NC News. "The important achievements in education, and the association of the Chur~h in meeting social problems and in assisting the poor" are being undertaken with the collaboration of other churches and in cooperation with the government, especially since Jamaica's independence, he said, Independence, the archbishop said "automatically made all churches aware of doing their part to have independence succeed." The Archbishop described how Jamaica's churches are cooperating not only in education but also in solving other problems of national life. The churches, he noted, were the first sponsors of education and they are now working together in revising curricula in response to new trends. Secondary school curricula, he said, are being revised for students who are not going to college, vocational training is being emphasized and Christian churches are cooperating witl) , the Jewish community in estab:' Iishing basic schools to meet the needs of the disadvantaged.

Suggest Retirem-ent Fund for Sisters COLUMBUS (NC)-A recjmmendation that each Catholic school in Ohio pay $400-per-year per working nun "for the benefit of the retired and infirm Sisters" has been made by a committee which comprises four of the state's Catholic Bishops, major religious superiors and diocesan school of. ficials here. Bishops Clarence Elwell of Columbus, John Mussio of Steubenville, John Donovan of Toledo and James Malone of Youngstown attended. Whether the $400-per-year and other recommendatio~s, are accepted as state policy, will be determined at a later meeting of all Ohio's bishops. The me~ting was the tl)ird between the bishops and.major superiors, sponsored by the Catholic Conference of Ohio. Recommendations made in December 1968 and March 1969 resulted in state standards for teaching Sisters' salaries. Under the plan, Sisters' sal-

Film on Eucharist Award Winner NEW YORK (NC) - A 10minute color film produced for American television has taken first place in the worldwide competition sponsored by the International Catholic Association (or Radio and Television. Meeting in Monte Carlo, a jury of broadcasters representing 15 countries voted the prize by unanimous acclamation to the film "Eucharist," produced by St. Francis Productions of Los Angeles. The film, part of a series on the Eucharist focuses on the sacraments through the use of symbolism. Prince Ranier of Monaco presented the award, a sculptured dove, to Charles Reilly, executive director of the United States National Catholic Office for Radio and Television and head of the American delegation to the 12th annual UNDA festival. Accepting the honor in behalf of the U. S., Reilly noted that the film "Eucharist speaks the language of teleVIsion in. the effective manner broadcasterslalways strive for and rarely achieve." The NCORT executive praised the Franciscan Fathers, calling them "the most creative group working for the Catholic Church . in religious programming today."

aries should be $1,800 this year; $2,200 during the 1970-71 school year and $2,500 for the 1971-72 school year. If the additional $400 per working Sister is put into effect by 1972 as recommended, a parish's cost per Sister will be $2,900. Mother M. Eileen Pentecost of Akron, a Dominican, chairman of the group's finance committee, explained the reasons for the $400 per year request this way: Conservative estimates show the average cost to support a working, non-wage earning Sister is $1,000 per year; to support an infirm Sister, $2,800 per year. "It is proposed that the basis of a solution is the wage earning Sisters in each diocese and parish," she said. . Bishop Malone said, if the proposal is accepted, "the money should be put in a formal retirement fund by each community," s'uggesting Sisters and "any other part of our Church" seeking funds must base their app,eal on a full, public accounting of their funds. ' Other recommendations included: rhat each diocesan superintendent of schools arrange small group meetings of all pastors and principals to determine responsibilities in operation of schools. That minimum standards for religion teachers, department chairmen and coordinators, be accepted. That religious communities supply parishes with persons trained in religious education and parishes finance training of Sisters in this field, with a guarantee that the parish will get a trained Sister for its money. That dioceses implement continued education of priests in the field of religious education. That there should be collaboration between clergy and religion teachers for the benefit of the children taught and as a means of furthering Ii,turgical renewal on the parish level.

Cardinal Defends Grant to Study Police Issue

THE ANCHORThurs., April 2, 1970

South Vi'etnam Honors Priest

DETROIT (NC) - John Cardinal' Dearden turned columnist to explain an $8,000 archdiocesan appropriation for a project to Improve police-community relations, and also to criticize the current "era of over-simplification, of slogans, or trying to state complex issues in 25 words or less." In a by-lined article in the Michigan Catholic, archdiocesan newspaper, the Detroit archbishop asserted: "Brevity may be a virtue at times, but it can cause great harm when it leads to major misunderstandings, as in the case of grants made from the 1968 Archdiocesan Development Fund." Daily newspapers had reported an $8,000 appropriation lJlade to the Ad-Hoc Action Group was for watching Detroit police: The cardinal said: "One oversimplification called the investigation 'a bought and paid for search and destroy mission.' " Pollee Task Difficult Considerable Catholic opposition to the appropriation resulted, threats of refusal tq contribute were made, and the success of the annual $1 million fund-raising drive was jeopardized. Cardinal Dearden emphasized development fund projects "are . tOQ varied for thumbnail descrip- . tion." He said they include a way to halt price gouging of the poor, a plan to help tenants force landlords to obey housing regulations, to overcome early deficiencies in schooling, self-help activities and a number of other programs. Regarding the $8,000 appropriation to improve police-community relations, the cardinal wrote: "In this particular instance, the proposal addresses itself to the issue of police-community relations. And truly this is an issue that has implications for the peace and order of our whole community. We all appreciate the difficult task and responsibility that the police officer bears In the conscientious discharge of his duties." Search Out Facts "The' proposal of the Ad-Hoc Action Group is designed precisely to bring about the development of participation and understanding leading to citizen support and cooperation with the police. This group in<;ludes p,rofessors, clergymen, executives and many other reputable persons, and it has. credibility in the inner-city. "What it reports would be widely believed. Its members, aware of the allegations that are made of citizen mistreatment by the police, propose to search out the facts. "I believe tjlat -wIth this explanation of the Ad-Hoc Group's proposal, you will agree that it deserves our support. I am sorry that an unbalanced, dramatized account of what was proposed reached print before an informative report ~ould be prepared."

Says More In-Depth Reporting 路'Needed Prelate Stress'es Catholic 'Press Role BALTIMORE (NC)-The U.S. Catholic hierarchy's top man in the field of communications hopes the Catholic press will get into more indepth reporting of current problems and will not avoid critical and opposing viewpoints. "I think that the newspaper should reflect the views of society, and therefore it should communicate to Catholics the opposing view - but it should communicate it in a way that is perfectly respectful of authority," said Archbishop. Philip M. Hannan of New Orleans. Chairman of the U.S. Catholic Conference communications department, the archbishop was himself a diocesan weekly newspaper editor-in-chief while auxiliary bishhop of Washington, D.C.. He expressed his views on the Church and communications in an interview in The Catholic Review, the Baltimore archdiocesan newspaper. "Many of the problems that we face today depend upon. the application of our theology to our life," he said, "and I am hoping that the Catholic press will address itself in depth to some of these great problems.

Full Catholic Life "I think the Catholic press is needed just as much today to help solve our problems as, for instance, it was needed in days when it used to ward off the attacks of anti-Catholic newspapers."

"It is basically a theological problem," said the ,prelate.

"I have found time and again,

Praises Proposal For Desegregation WASHINGTON (NC) - President Nixon's 10,000-word statement proposing $1.5 billion be used to finance desegration programs throughout the country was praised bY.. Father C. Albert KO,ob, president of the National .Catholic Education Association. Father Koob .pointed to the President's proposal to finance innovative educational experiences between children of different races in order to reduce de facto segregation-rather than creating massive and expensive bus systems as "a wise choice." "The immediate problem is to get as much quality education as possible to the underprivileged," the Catholic priest continued. "While integration certainly ranks among the highest of national priorities, unwieldly, wasteful, and strictly mechanical integration devices should not be permitted to disrupt t.he parallel goal of expanding education to all citizens, particularly when imaginative alternatives can be developed," Father Koob said.

in talking with very prominent people, that the Catholic newspaper-through which they receive the thinking of the Church -is of great value to them," he said. "You have to remember that a sermon is not long enough to allow a pastor to reflect, completely, the thinking of the Church. The great need today is for spiritual direction and inspiration, and Catholics cannot get this fully by any means other than the Catholic newspaper." . Archbishop Hannan said the Catholic, newspaper functi9ns in the role of a prophet, "a prophet coming from the world." Asked whether a diocesan newspaper should print news stories that might represent criticism of a stand taken by a bishop, he said opposing views should be reflected but in a way that respects authority. "In so doing," he said, "the Catholic newspaper actually strengthens authority in the Church be<;ause it gives the' people an educated view of authority."

, SAIGON (NC) - A Canadian priest responsible for the daily feeding of 1,200 Vietnamese has been honored by the South Vietnamese government. Redemptorist Father Lucien Olivier, who came' to Vietnam from Quebec 40 years ago, received the Social Action Medal First Class from Minister of Social Welfare Tran Nguon Phieu. Stationed in Hue from 1929 to 1953, Fr. Olivier first became interested in social work and wefare during the famine that struck central Vietnam in 1944. He' began providing food for 100 children every day and soon was supporting 400. In December of that year, he opened a soup kit路 chen that fed 20 people a day, and by March 1945, the number had grown to 200. In 1953 Father Olivier came to Saigon and, with the aid of U. S. Catholic Relief Services, the overseas aid agency of American Catholics, opened a home for unwed mothers and a nursery for their children. His nursery also takes in babies abandoned in city hospitals and now has 85 of them. Father Olivier now also has an orphanage caring for 140 children from two to six years old. At Binh Loi, outside the city, he has an institution with a small farm where 95 families of widows and their children are settled. He also manages a home for the aged and crippled. Father Olivier has returned to Canada, only once in the past 40 years and he has said he does not intend to go again. "My life is here among my peopre," he explained.

WASHINGTON (NC) - Daniel Patrick Moynihan, counselor to President Richard M. Nixon, criticized the rise of violence in America and a growing demand for instant social perfection. Moynihan said that he was disturbed "at what seemed to be a trend that, if society is not going to become perfect quickly, it had better be destroyed quickly," Speaking to delegates to a conference of the National Jewish Welfare Board here, Moynihan pointed out that. the youngsters killed iil an', explosion in :New 'York's ,Greenwich Village were makirig bombs "not to blow up b~i1dings, but to blow up people." He urged that young people work to elect Congressmen rather than seek violent 'means to change society.

Lauds Decision On Welfare

WASHINGTON (NC) Marijuana may be an occupational hazard for American troops in Vietnam, a

WASHINGTON (NC) - Msgr. Lawrence J. Corcoran, director of the National Conference of Catholic Charities, called the U.S. Supreme Court's decision on welfare "a large step forward in bringing about an equitable welfare system." The 5-3 court decision ruled that welfare recipients are entitled to an evidentiary hearing before their payments can be stopped. Justice William J. Brennan, Jr., speaking for the majority, said halting of payments without a hearing constituted deprivation of the due processes of law. Under the new ruling, which affects cases in New York, California, Iowa, Texas, Georgia and Florida, "the recepient must be allowed to retain an attorney if he so desires" and "the decisionmaker should state the reasons for his determination and indicate 'the evidence he relied on

a priest famous for helping addicts told a conference of 50 military chaplains here. Father Dan Egan, a Graymoor Franciscan called "the junkie priest" because of his work among New York City's drug users, said without referring directly to the alleged My Lai \ shootings: "Gl's who act out of all context may have been hopped up on marijuana." Father Egan came to Washington for a symposium on "ministry to the drug user" at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. By coincidence, the meeting was a few days before the Senate subcommittee on juvenile delinquency started hearings (March 24) on drug use in Vietnam. Sen. Thomas J.

Another 'Side of the Issue For the past few years there has, been a selling job going on, trying to equate many if not most of the ills of the world with overpopulation. According to this theine, environmental pollutio!J, and economic problems could: all be resolved if population were controlled' and reduced. In a little publicized speech-,a week ~o ago, H~n­ drick S.. Houthakker, a member pf the President's Cou~cil of Economic Advisers, expressed the view that "the.r~ is little reason 'to expect overpopu~ation", in 'the world. \He said -that there was "no evidence" that the world's poor " I countries were in general overpopulated. Describing population control as a ",simple - mirided idea" and a "panacea" this high official has 'said, "it has not been demonstrated that there exists any close cas~aJ relation between the growth of per capita gro!!s national product and the growth of population, and there is no· qbvious reason why there should be. The use of facile biQI'ogical analogies obscures the fact that ,man is a producer I as well as a consumer." . Mr. Houthakker pointed out that "there .is little reason to expect overpopulation for the world as a whole .in the foreseeable future. Most serious studies of the sJbject suggest that the food supply can be expanded to ac'commodate a much larger population than now exists ~>n earth." He also said, "what is of course more seIious is that overpopulation may lead to a degradation of the' social and physical environment, but this appears' to be morel a matter of the proper distribution' of the population than I of total numbers. Much can be done .to improve the en~ vironment without attempting to influence population trends:" I Perhaps - and this is not a very hopeful perhaps ..;.-. this view of a' responsible and knowledgeable official may help bri~g before the minds of people a side of tQe issue that is not often publicized.

They would wish nothing more than to be able to worship openly andt~ bear witness to Christ before others in an open manner. But their life under present conditions is to preserve their faith in Christ and to keep alive the slender flame of ,Christianity in China against the day when Christianity will be able to come out into the open again. It is no "persecution game" that they are playiri~. This is harsh reality. .: It is also a lesson to those Christians in countries where religion can be practiced openly.

Sulpicion .F·o,ther Expiains Today/,s Identnty Crisis Among Pri'e~ts ORLANDO (NC) ....:.. Scripture ,scholar Father Raymond Brown. S.S., told a conference of diocesan priests, here that ,"there should be no identity crisis among priests * '" * if others can see Christ'in him." But, Father Brown told his audience' at St: Charles Borrom~o cathedral, there does seem to be an identity crisis on the practical level. The Sulpician' attributed this to the fact that modern priests must fill fo.ur' distinct roles ,in their ministry. , . "The first minist,ry is that of discipleship," he said. Unlike Old Testament priests who w.ere born to the priestly function. "the Twelve were called to follow a special' way, called to pattern their lives on that of Jesus." The second ministry' was that of apostle," of one sent to preach the risen Christ." This, Father Brown said, is a ministry of the Church, "a, ministry to spread the word." Next, he continued, was' the ministry of the bishop-presbyter, the man who presided at local churches. "It is not known precisely how this role developed." Father Brown commented, "or even if all churches had, such ' men, because it was basically an administrative task." The fourth ministry was presiding at the Eucharist, the priest concluded. Time of Grace "By the end of the second century,all roles came together in one person - the priest - a fact which was both his grandeur and his weakness. ' "It was his grandeur, because he summarized in himself the whole heritage o~ the Christian tradition. It is a weakness in that priests find it difficult to meet the demands of these four ministries in modern societies." But, Father Brown told the priests, there should be no identity crisis if the relationship of Christ and priest is kept in mind. 'Later, in an interview' with .the Florida Catholic. Orlando's diocesan paper, Father Brown reminded Catholics that efforts to make the Church more appealing should not lead people to water down the harsh demands of 'Clirist. "" The priest said that he, views the current turmoil of renewal in

the Church as "a time of tremendous grace, depending on' how we deal with it." Responsibility to Others Referring to' the critical mood of many Catholics, he added: "Today it is fashionable for socalled Catholics to attack the Pope ., '" * it takes much more courage to defend the Church today than to criticize ,-Pope PauL'··.· :,.>, ' When asked how he likes the way ChLirch renewal is going, Father Brown was not overly optimistic. "We must remember that the obligation to bear witness to Christ implies an obliga- . tion to love one another. This' love is not too apparent either on the part of many conservatives or liberals in the Church." Commenting on .the current . move toward democracy in the Church. he warned that people must be willing to accept each others' decisions. He urged that all . Catholics recognize that neither the parish. .the diocese nor the national Church is autonomous. Each, he said, must look to its responsibilities to others, and ask what effect its decisions might have on the whole Church.

Primary Job Continued from Page One University students are surveying the needs. "The government heartily welcomes : this cooperation." the archbishop said. Christian churches and the Jewish community he said, are also working with the govern; ment on a basic religious education syllabus for all schools. Moral education is the "root" of development, the archbishop said. 'Economic development alone cannot change the world, he said, adding: "There is an innate godliness in men that requires, nourishment."

Archbishop ·Dwyer Hits Proposals To Enforce Family Limitation PORTLAND (NC)-Archpishop Robert .J. Dwyer of Portland has strongly criticized attempts to enact I'cgislation to enforce family limitaation "by some form of tax discrimination or by wholesale sponsorship of abortion or artificial birth prevention," Such action by any state, the Oregon prelate said here in a public statement, "would be grievously interfering with the rights of its citizens to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness," The archbishop referred to recommendations by Robert Finch, secretary of Health, Education and Welfare, and by U. S. Sen. Robert Packwood of Oregon as being of a "highly tendentious nature," Archbishop Dwyer said any proposal "which would put the state in the place of God, as possessing final power over human life, human freedom and human dignity must be rejected absolutely." Sen. Packwood has introduced federal legislation allowing .a maximum of three children per family for personal income tax exemption and legalizing abortion in the District of Columbia. Finch has suggested that Americans limit their families to two children. Colored }»ropaganda The archbishop said "the current debate on ecology and the population crisis is theological at bottom."

In another resolution, ecumenists asked the Bishops' Committee on Eecumenism and Interre- Iigious Affairs to study the fact f)f incidence of intercommunion, to get a better idea of its scope and its significance. 'The Bishops' committee, which met separately on the occasion of the workshop, gave some consideration to these resolutions, but has not yet developed a definite response to them, according to Father John F. Hotchkin, associate director of the committee. Record attendance at this year's seventh annual workshop totalled more than 500 ecumenists, including Catholics, Episcopalians, Methodists, Lutherans and others. The majority of those were not Catholics, a first for the Catholic-sponsored' event, Father Hotchkin noted.

'Our Dream, Too'

DUNEDIN (NC)-Falher Brian Winders, a New Zealand priest on loan to the Cook Islands, has urged establishment of a mobile missionary force to meet the needs of the Church in the Pacific. Commenting that staying at isolated mission stations was harmful to priests' morale and that a shortage of priests makes mobility morc esscntial, Father Winders urged that the Chun:h set up traveling missionary teams. He suggested that n'ltive cate. chists could instruct the faithful and supervise Church property while missioners worked in oiher areas.

Avers American Life Style Too Rushed for Happiness By Joseph and Marilyn Roderick It has become quite fashion~ble to write about what is wrong with our society and many people have their panaceas. I have no doubt that something is awry with the vay we live (how many of us suffer from tension headaches, upset stomachs, by some chance you do come etc.?) but I have yet to find across the material you're looka solution. We work too ing for, its price is generaIly behard, run too fast, play too yond your wildest imaginings. furiously and live as if tomorrow will never come.

Take doors, for example. Heavy, Spanish-like wooden doors are being shown in all the better home magazines as the perfect foil for the heavy furniture that is in vogue now. When you start to search for this type of door you find similar designs but somehow you know they're not as rich looking as those you saw in House Beautiful or Better Homes or any of the other 101 idea books filled with dream rooms. Oh, we bought a door, not the one I reaIly wanted but it did appear to be the only type available in this area. A month or so after we hung it up Tom Medeiros gave me a catalogue of unusual shutters and doors and 10 and behold there was my dream door.'

The most appropriate comparison I have heard came from an elderly immigrant who was quite dumbfounded by our breakneck pace. No Joy His analysis foIlows in a rough translation from the Portuguese: "When we work in Portugal, we work at our our own speed. Let us say that we are working in a field and come to a big rock. We try to remove the rock and if it is too big we caIl our friends to help lis.' We argue about how to remove the rock, try five or six ways, have a drink and go home to- think about it.

Someone tries to prove his strength, another his cleverness; wings of practicality when, I we have a good time and finally looked at the price -(I reaIly had to look twice), for my charming, we remove the rock." He then goes on to say, "Here rustic-looking 'door could be you COme to a rock and befpre ordered - unfinished - for the you can think, about it' bull- paltry' sum' of '$500. And that, dozer rips it out of the ground, dear friends, is why': most of dumps it on a truck and you our homes do not look like a page out' of House and Garde'ns. just keep right on working."

Supports Cuts In Colleg-e Staff WASHINGTON (NC)-Despitc a four-day student boycott of classes, members of the Trinity College board of trustees here voted unanimously to uphold the oismissal of nine faculty members when their present cont.racts expire. Speaking after the board of trustees met with five students and five faculty members to discuss the contract terminations, Trinity president Sister Margaret Claydon, S.N.D., said: "In view of the fact that the proper administrative and faculty procedures were followed (in terminating the contracts), the board unanimously agreed that the request to reconsider the action must be declined." In other action at the meeting, the board of trustees voted: To set up a student-faculty committee to give students a voice in evaluating faculty and making decisions on faculty promotions and tenure.

Deplore Crime Against Blacks

TRENTON (NC)-A Joint Education Committee of the New Jersey Legislature is recommending' legislation that will prohibit the introduction of sex education courses in any public school district except by referendum. ' The recommendation is the result of a study ,into the controversy over sex education programs in various areas of the state. Controversy arose when most local districts inaugurating such programs Ignored guidelines prepared ,by the New Jersey State Department of Education. Those guidelines issued in 1967 suggested that the public be consulted by school districts con-, sidering sex eduQition courses. They also suggested that such courses be integrated with comprehensive family living programs. The Joint Education Committee was formed by the legislature to look Into the controversy aft~r the education department was asked to advise local districts to call a one-year moratorium on the introduction of sex courses. It is also recommending that materials from the Sex Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS) not be used in any courses being taught in New Jersey. Much of the controversy in New Jersey centered on the use of this material.

Delays Expulsion After Protests QUITO v(NC}--Expulsion of a Spanish priest from Ecuador on charges of interfering in local politics has been delayed by protests of priests and laymen.

Missionaries Elect Two Provincials

BIRMINGHAM (NC) - The spiritual leaders of Alabama Catholicism deplored a "cowardly and cynical" denial of civil rights to a community of Black Muslims and asked that law enforcement officials punish the crUne. "The honor of our state. demands no less," said Bishops Joseph G. Vath of Birmingham and John L. May of Mobile in a joint statement. They referred to the fatal poisoning and shooting of 64 cows on a farm run by Black Muslims near Ashville. B'ishops Vath and May said in their joint statement that "Alabama has been again dishonored" and "the entire nation shacked" by the cattle poisoning and' shooting. "In the interest of justice and in the discharge of our responsibilities as religious leaders in the state of Alabama we feel compelled to speak out," they declared. "We differ with much of the ideological position of the Black Muslims. But we deplore this cowardly and cynical denial of their civil rights in our state. We call upon our law enforcement officials to make every effort to punish this crime. -The honor of our state demands no less."

Opposition to the shared time plan l)as come from representa-' tives of various area PTA, civic and neighborhood associations. According to Manford Byrd Jr., deputy superintendent, the key reasons for withdrawing the proposal were controversy on the issue, questions raised by board members and the financing of a teacher. Byrd said the controversy, "which we didn't have with oth- . er shared time programs," arose within the community. A number of people he said, have claimed the proposal would infringe on- church-state separations. And many people "think the space and time could be better used for Kellogg students." Others, he added, including some board members, "questionan additional outlay. In a period of money shortage, they want to know why we're planning to expand an educational program."

HARTFORD (NC) - Construction grants made to four Catholic. colleges and universities 'in Connecticut by the federal government are constitutional, a threejudge U. S. district court panel ruled :here. Judges J. Joseph Smith, William H. Timbers and M. Joseph Blumenfield held that the grants from the U. S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare, totalling nearly a million dollars, are legal. The grants were made to Fairfield University, operated in Fairfield by the Jesuit Fathers; Sacred Heart University, a layadministered diocesan institution in ·Bridgeport; Albertus Magnus College, operated by the Dominican Sisters in New Haven; and Annhurst College, conducted by the Daughters of the Holy Spirit in South Woodstock. The building aided by the grants are a library, a fine arts center, a science building and a language laboratory. The judges ruled· that the primary purpose of the grants had nothing to do with advancing the cause of . religion. A suit had .been brought against the federal and state government and the four institutions by 75 Connecticut residents alleging that the grants promoted religion and therefore violated the constitutional provisions for separation of. church and state. The plaintiffs were supported by the American Jewish Congress and the Connecticut Civil liberties Union. Attorneys for the plaintiffs indicated the decision would be appealed to the U. S. Supreme Court..' '. ~ .

S'PECIAL GIFTS PHASE OPENS APRIL 20 The Special Gifts phase of the Catholic Charities Appeal of the diocese of Fall River begins Monday, April 20 and ends on Saturday, May 2. The Appeal is made to fraternal~ . profession, business 'and industrial .organizations. Since the Charities Appeal provides 'services to all in the community, the groups mentioned路 in the Special Gifts category are interested in supporting community services to 'all regardless of race, color or creed. This year's Appeal has a special significance since it is a tribute to His Excellency James L. Connolly, Bishop of Fall River '~n the occasion of his twenty-fifth'episcopaLan-' niversary. Most Reverend James J. Gerrard, Auxiliary to the Bishop of Fall.River, said: "This year's Appeal should be a banner year. .We are honoring Bishop Connolly for his twenty-five silver jubilee years as a Bishop. All these years have been spent in the diocese路 in the caring for the poor, needy, elderly, youth and exceptional and underprivileged_ children. He has championed these causes by works of charity and social service." The six areas of the diocese in the Special Gifts phase are Fall River, New Bedford, 'Taunton, the Attleboros and the Cape. and Islands. The campaign for the Special Gifts serves as a barometer for the house-to-house parish appeal beginnin,g May 3 and ending May)3. Bishop Ger~ard, this year's episcopal chairman of the' Appeal, has sent personal letters to the Solicitors and contributors in this phase. Many Solicitors have already acknowledged their willingness to take an active part in this year's Appeal honoring Bishop Connol.... Iy for his twenty-five years of .care fOf the

Mr. Joseph C.Murray of North Dighton, this year's Lay 'Chairman of the Appeal said: "It is hoped with special emphasis placed on the- tribute to Bishop Connolly, the Special Gifts phase of the Appeal will be highly success ful ." ' . Rev. Msgr. Anthony M. Gomes, Diocesan Director of the Appeal, announced today that 710 solicitors will make 3,125 contacts in the Special Gifts phase throughout the diocese.

Reports Hi'gh Rate of Response To Survey 'on Priesthood CHICAGO (NC)-The national average response to. the most comprehensive survey of. the priesthood ever attempted by American Catholicism has so far been one of the highest reported for mailed surveys of such broad scope. The National Opinion Research Center at the University of Chicago, which is. conducting the survey for the National Confer. ence of Catholic Bishops, reported that some dioceses and religious communities already have a completion rate of over 90 per cent. . Every bishop and major superior of Religious, in addition ·to· more than 6,000 priests, was' mailed a 46-page. confidential questionnaire' ,to 'determine what they see' as' the past, present and future role of the priesthood and the Cath'olic Church in the United States. Encouraging Response The questionnaire, a sociological survey, forms part ·of a comprehensive study of priestly life and !'Jlinistry under a contract signed by the bishops' conference. Responsible for ~he overall study is the Bishops"Committee on Pastoral Research and Practices, chaired. by Cardinal John Krol of Philadelphia. The q'uestionnaire was dra'fn up after 'Iong study an'd consultallQ" among leading scholars in theology, . psychology, sociology and allied fields. Aspects of the priesthood under investigation include: personal characteristics,

ana psychological spiritual growth, the rofes of the priest, celibacy, professional performance and job satisfaction; as well as decision-making and authority in the Church. "The response to the questionnaire has been very enco'uraging," said Father Richard A. Schoenherr of Detroit, senior study director. . , Amended Version I. "We are making' use of every means at our disposal to encour" age priests who have, not returned questiopnaires tp. d,o so right away. To get· as' accurate a picture,oUhe American priest as possible, we need a unif6rmly high rate of response across the nation." . . . An amended version .of the questionnaire is being pre~ared for sending to a random sample of priests who have resigned from the active ministry in the past five years. .'

Father Andrew 'Greeley, sociologist. who 'is program director of the :research center, noted: "Everyone's making guesses about it But to have the: real picture, we are getting the official numbers from every dio.cese and religious community in. the sample." .

The Conference Commission 'on Families and Children urged the President to reconsider his action. . According to the budget for fiscal 1971, federal expenditures for social services, staff training and administration may not exceed II per cent of the aggregate amount estimated for these purposes for the fiscal y~ar, 1970. The "freeze." the commission said, will limit "effective delivery of rehabilitation services" which are "designed to help people achieve their maximum potential for self-support and personal growth." It will also impede. efficient planning for the most effective use of social and rehabilitation services, the commission added. It said not only is the I 0 per cent increase over the 1970 bud~ get inadequate, but it also places a ceiling on expenditures. for social services. The' commission complained that the new appropriations will become "closed" whereas previously' they have' been "open-ended."

WASHNGTON . (NC) - More than 100 clergymen joined Cardinal Patrick O'Boyle .in renewing priestly promises of celibacy and obedience during the Holy Thursday' Mass of the Chrism at St. Matthew's cathedral here. The vow renewal was a suggestion made when the Vatican released a new preface for the Mass during which a bishop' blesses sacramental oil's' to be used during the year. A controversy arose when the suggestion was interpreted by some as an order 'i'rom the Vatican which priests were obligated to follow. Some U. S. bishops chose to leave the renewal ceremony out of Holy Thursday liturgy until uniform text Is released from the Vatican. Others were using a: sample form supplied by the Vatican in February. Some modif ied the text to meet their owJ:t needs. . Cardinal O'Boyle 'had invited priests in the archdiocese· by letter to attend the ceremony, if it

did not interfere with other pastoral duties on Holy ·Thursday. He told clergymen in the congregation, following the blessing of the holy oils, "I want you to know that I am deeply grateful for your presence here this morning. God Bless ·you."

Support Pope BERLIN (NC)-The bishops of East Germany have expressed their support for the pro-celibacy position of Pope Paul VI in a public declaration in the East Berlin chUrch weekly St. Hedwigsblatt. Cardinal Alfred Bengsch of Berlin, who resides in the Soviet sector of Berlin, had previously rejected the view of the Dutch National Pastoral CC)lincil, which supported optional celibacy Jor priests. The cardinal called "illusory and irrelevant" the notion that the present crisis in the Church could be resolved by abolishing obligatory priestly celibacy. '

• Portland Designs 'Second Career' Plan for Nuns

THE ANCHORThurs.., April 2, 1970

Schools Reject Special Program

PORTLAND (NC) - A second . time . around pilot project designed to activate able-bodied nuns forced into retirement by compulsory age rules in schools and institutions has been launched in the Portland diocese. Bishop Peter L. Gerety said the Maine diocese, plus the Advisory Council for Religious and the Major Superiors of Religious Orders, designed the program to provide "second careers" for retirees anxious to get back in work for the Church and people of the diocese. A task force has been established to get the program into full operation. Sister Elizabeth Cyr, task force chairman, commented: "Most of us will agree that aging is something we can neither ignore nor escape. None of us is getting any younger and more of us than ever before in history are already old. If we live long enough, we will eventually find ourselves lal;leled as senior citizens." Needs, Services "A little more than a halfcentury ago, there were only three million people who were 65 Qr older. Today, over 15 million people fit into this category. The number of senior citizens is becoming a segment of population that is making its presence felt in society, bringing about gradual changes in attitude toward old age and retirement." "In the immense fluctuating variety of life within the Church, it is possible to discover many stable patterns of Meds,and· services which can be met by Sisters who are in the retirement age group. "The plentiful avenues needing attention are the caring for the sick, the poor, those needing instruction in the rudiments of the faith, and the filling of personnel g&PS in the vocational and other educational programs. Community activity and the opportunity to serve can give our older Sisters an active role and a sense of worth."

Pluriform General .Ecumenical Council . Dr. Espy Proposes UN Type of' Organization HARRISBURG (NC) - A National Council of Churches official has proposed a United Nations-type organization. for the various religious deI)ominations in this country. \

Dr. R. H. Edwin Espy,' the council's executive secretary, supported the idea at the Pennsylvania Council of Churches biennial meeting here, advocating "a pluriform general ecumenical council" in which all Christian communities and agencies "can regularly gather to' share their views on major issues in the life

Rochester Closing ROCHESTER (NC)-King Preparatory .Schrool, Monroe county's only coed Catholic high school will shut its doors for the last time this June. Rochester's Bishop Joseph L.

"Such a consultative assembly might have two manifestationsone, an official legislative body or parliament, the 'other a gathering of the people of the Church on the order of the Kirchentag (a biennial meeting of, Protestants) in Germany. High Level Discussions "Within the broad framework of such a general ecumenical council, there should be designed, on the analogy of the specialized agencies of the United Nation ...' highly focused instrumentalities for particular spiritual, educational, ideological, social, communication, or service objectives to which only those communions and. groups should belong that were deeply concerned with these respective objectives." He said the proposal originally was made at a council meeting earlier in Detroit. Dr. Espy said "we are selling ourselves short and indulging in a contradiction if we call ourselves 'ecumenical"

while the Roman Catholic Church and various conservative evangelical bodies. "are not somehow integrally a part of our effort to manifest unity." Dr. Espy said discussions at high levels are starting concerning possible admission of the Roman Catholic Church into the council. Interna'tionally, progress has been made in joint talks between the World Council of Churches and the Vatican, said Dr. Espy. Common Cause Church councils must "not only find common Christian values, but make common cause in the broader area of human values, without retreating for a mo· ment from that which is distinctive in our Christian Faith," Dr. Espy said. , Church councils, Dr. Espy added, should express the essential life of the churches, rather than serving simply as agencies. And while recognizing the justice of some demands, they should be more than mere partisans for particular causes, hc asserted. He said a major part of the mission should be to seek to end, in a united way, the confusion of values. "It is a bit ridiculous to feel that we can resolve this issue of values with the Baptist answer, or the Lutheran answer, or the Roman Catholic answer," he said. "We can come at this problem with any kind of adequacy only with the fullness of the faith that has been vouchsafed to us all together in the univer.sal church of Christ," Dr. Espy declared.

DENVER (NC) - Representatives of Denver's five archdiocesan high schools rejected a suggestion for a six-day program in the schools on peace, Vietnam and the draft. However, they agreed there might be value in a training seminar for interested tcachers on these topics. The suggestion for a program in the schools was made by the Pastoral' Concerns Committee, a subcommittee of the archdiocesan Priests' Council, at a meeting of teachers, principals and counselors. Msgr. William Jones,' superintendent of schools, stated: "The vital issues of war and peace demand critical analysis. AII of our schools need the help of groups who can give us their perspective. The need is relative. Schools have to be open to the needs of youngsters today and we should do anyhing we can to help." Those attending the meeting rejected the special program because: It is not the position of the schools to provide information concerning the draft; Within the context of history and social studies courses the material about Vietnam is adequately covered; Religion classes discuss the social gospel and include 'conscience, violence and social justice as a part of the total curriculum. .

Appoints Education Department Head COLUMBUS (NC)-Nelson N. Harper has been appointed executi",e secretary of the department on education of the Catholic Conference of Ohio. Theodore N. Staudt, evecutive director of the conference. made the announcement at the recent meeting of Ohio bishops, superintendents of schools and major superiors of Religious communities teaching in Ohio. For the past 15 years Harper has been with the Ginn and Company Educational Publisher in the Catholic school department.

Start CamlPoign to Popul~ rize St. Francisl Peace Praye.. ". .CINCINNATI (NC) - (Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.) St. Francis of Assisi's little prayer of peace may' become one of the best known and most frequently heard of all prayers if the campaign being launched here by the St. Anthony Messenger magazine is successful. . (Where there is hatred, let me sow love;) The Franciscan magazine appealed to "as many men in positions of leadership as possible" to recite the prayer daily "in the hope that they will come to think and act always in· the spirit of that prayer." (Where there is injury, par. don;) To begin the "campaign for positive moral lea<\ership, ". the magazine presented a· copy of the prayer to President Richard M.. Nixon. \ (Where there is doubt, faith;) President Nixon accepted the prayer from Rep. Robert A. Taft, Jr., of Ohio, who made the presentation on behalf of the Cincinnati Franciscans. (Where there is despair, love;) Into Effect Taft reported that· the President expressed personally "his admiration for the effort that is being made to secure (the prayer's) additional recognition and usage as an inspiration to all Christians." (Where there is . darkness, light;) Father Norman Perry, O.F.M., the magazine associate editor, said: "We believe that the world can definitely be made better if people will say and live this prayer. However, it is particularly important that the leaders of our society should strive to put the principles of the Peace Prayer into effect." ..

(And where there is sadness, joy.) Moral Leadership I. "To be moral ,is to do positive good," said Father Perry. "Morality demands that we concern ourselves with the prob· lems of others-with the ptoblems of the whole world." . (0 Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;) I . "Positive moral leadership will light the way to pea<;e," said Father Perry, "it will work to eliminate hunger, poverty and I disease." (To be understood as to lunderstand; to be loved as to loVe;). First suggestion of the campaign came from John F. W~ar-· ton, who in an article entitled "Toward an Affirmative Morality," in the Saturday Review; of Literature, cited St. Francis';. as one of the few great historical leaders who inspired "a morality that demands· action to Help others, not me.rely abstinence from acts' that might harm one's neighbor." , "I . Offers Copies , (For it is in· giving that we receive;) . I Wharton referred to St. Francis' "famous prayer" and suggested that "whether or not our leaders will say this prayer eC\ch night, the rest of us might be I well advised to do· so." (It is in pardoning that we are p:lrdoned;) ., Copies of the prayer are being offered to the public by the St. Anthony Messenger. Readers were urged to send copies (available for a stamped, addressed envelope sent to the magazire at 1615 Republic Street. Cincinnati, Ohio 45210) of the prayer to public officials and leaders lin basiness and industry. i (And it is in dying that we are born to. eternal life.)

Schedul·e Public Smut Hearings WASHINGTON (NC) - After gathering testimony behind dosed doors for almost two years, the federal government's Presidential Commission on Obscenity and Pornography announced it will hold public hearings on the issue. The hearings will take place in Los Angeles on May 4 and 5 and in Washington a week later. Representatives of church and youth groups and law enforcement agencies will be invited to discuss problems of pornography with commission members. Executive director W. Cody Wilson and commissioner Edward E. Elson said the public hearings were being scheduled as a result of the findings of the 18-man group. Both officials denied that pressure by commission members Rev. Winfrey Link, a Nashville Methodist minister, and Father Morton Hill, S.J., a veteran New York pornography fighter, led to the open meetings. The two clergymen joined Charles H. Keating, the Cincinnati attorney who founded Citizens for Decent Literature, in an attack' on the commission published in the April issue of Columbia, the magazine of the I<nights of Columbus. In the Columbia interview, the HONOR STUDENT: That's a" winning smile on Holy' Family three criticized the commission's student Jane Martin; a National Merit semi-finalbt and her members, methods and goals: "At the rate it is going, the comschool's Anchor reporter. . mission report won't be worth a hill of beans," Rev.

Says Conference Aids Movement F'or Peace

THE ANCHOR-Thurs.. April 2, 1970

Urge Retention Of Tax Status

WASHINGTON (NC) "It would be presumptuous to think that our division could start a youth movement for peace. It's already started," said Father Patrick McDermott, S.J., assistant director for peace of the Division of World Justice and Peace of the United States Catholic Conference. "In fact," the priest told NC News, "the momentum of the peace movement in this country is due largely to youth involvement." He was commenting on a proposal for an international Cath. olic youth organization to work for peace approved by the peace committee of the Pontifical Commission for Justice and Peace. That committee had also said that the establishment of such an organization will be left up to individuals and groups on the national or regional level. , Father McDermott .said his division will aim at channeling the energies of American youths "into a positive direction by alerting young pesople to the possibilities for non-violent change and the mechanisms by which it can be accomplished." Permanent Commitment . Many youths "are hitting drugs and copping out of struclured society because they feel powerless to change society for the better," he claimed. I "However," he stressed, "it is important that those youth who are genuinely interested in change remain open to the complexity of the peace issue so that they can sustain some sort of permanent commitment to social change ·and ,not burn· out too quickly." The Jesuit said that the division of world justice and peace "will use whatever resources we can find to encourage youth in this direction. We are in the process of holding training seminars on international social issues for young leaders, beginning with seminarians." The division's work to establish draft information and counseling services in each diocese, he added, "is certainly youthoriented and is related to the whole question of conscience and war."

University Refuses To Rehire Teacher SEATTLE (NC)-Seattle University officials stood firm against rehiring an Orthodox Jewish rabbi as an instructor in its school of theology next year despite a petition signed by mor!'l than 1,100 students favoring rehiring. The. petition was presented to officials after they had disclosed Rabbi Arthur A. Jacobvitz would not be offered a contract for the 1970-71 school year for "economic reasons." Recommending retention of Rabbi Jacobvitz, the students' petition said he was paid "a mere $1,000 for teaching two courses" and this could not make too great a budgetary difference. Father William F. LeRoux, S.J., theology department chairman, said the rabbi is paid $500 per quarter for instructing in "A Survey of Jewish History" and "A Survey of Jewish Theology." Father LeRoux said the univer· sity has an "overall plan to put into effect this Fall that will uffer more courses" in the theology deparment. The courses would be on a two-year basis, he said.

Check Missouri Discrimination Charge Protest State Education Department Policy WASHINGTON (NC)-Officials of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare here have begun checking into charges that Missouri's Department of Educa· tion is discriminating against private schools by withholding Federal funds without cause. The HEW check was announced after members of the state's Congressional delegation here urged an investigation. Public protest _I)as been steadily mounting in the state over a department of education decision barring public school personnel paid with federal funds from the premises of non-public schools. In a letter to HEW secretary Robert H. Finch, Missouri Congressmwoman Leonor K. Sullivan requested U. S. action, noting that: "Since the position of the state department of education seems to be completely at vari· ance with the Federal law and the regulations of the Office of Education, and since it disputes also the official position of the state attorney general, would you please review this matter as expeditiously as possible?" Legislators P"otest "Let me know," Congresswoman' Sullivan continued, "what can be done to overcome the obstructionism taking place at the state level in the use of Federal funds intended .for the education of all children, including those attending private schools." Earlier, 13 members of the Missouri legislature, including the speaker of the state's House of Representatives, publicly protested the education department policy. In letters lo state education officials, legislalors cited the January opinion of state attorney general John

Danforth. Danforth had announced that Federal funds provided for educationally deprived students under the provision of Title I of the 1965 Elementary and S~condary Education Act (ESEA) should go to all qualifying students regard· less of the school they attend. In the face of the protests, the president of the state board of education said that' the board might review its policy at its April 10 meeting. But board pres- ' ident J. Warren Head said that

Priests Question Morality of ABM HELENA (NC) - Members of the. priests' senate of the Helena diocese have issued a second appeal for national consideration of the morality of building a massive anti-ballistic missile (ABM) defense system. The priests' .statement, relayed to President Nixon, Montana's congressional delegation, and other public officials, said: "Within the past month, the national administration has proposed to expand the ABM system. We do not wish to enter into the military or political arguments concerning this proposal. We do insist once again, however, that there are definite moral questions raised by this proposals." .

he doubted' reconsideration would lead to a reversal of the present policy.. Benefits for All At the same time, the Missouri" Federation of Citizens for Educa· tional Freedom asked the U. S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare to stop all welfare grants in Missouri until state education officials pledge to distribute ESEA funds to private school students. In another protest, officials of the Missouri Catholic Conference accused the state education dep~rtment' of "wanton disregard of law" for its refusal to share the Federal money with private school students. Rep. James Symington of Missouri stated in a letter to Bishop Michael F. McAuliffe of Jefferson City: "I share your sentiments as the purpose of Public Law 89-10 is to provide the benefits of education to all educa· tionally deprived children in poor circumstances, whether they be enrolled hI a public or non-pUblic secondary or elementary schooL"

TRENTON (NC)-A legislative commission ha's recommended the present tax exempt status of religious, education and charitable institutions be left almost unchanged. The special 12-member study group, established in 1968, in a 76-page report said it found tax exempt organization in the state are paying taxes on income proI ducing properties. The report came as something of a surprise since Chester Apy of Red Bank, former assemblyman and commission chairman, several times during the course of the study advocated elimination of the tax eltempt status. The commission recommended few changes be made. It suggested the impact of exemptions be spread throughout a county because exempt property fre· quently serves people from areas outside the immediate location. The report said in many cases this works a hardship on taxpayers of individual communities, specifically citing the case of hospitals. . The commission recommended exempt status of such organizations as the Boy Scouts, Red Cross and YMCA be changed so the exemptions applied to buildings only, rather than buildings 'and land. It also recommended that the exemption for veterans groups be eliminated.

Maryland Senate Passes Prayer Bill ANNAPOLIS (NC) - Maryland's Senate has voted 30·10 to approve a constitutional amendment authorizing prayers in the state's public schools. The measure, passed without debate, now goes to the House, which has already approved similar proposals. House approval will win the amendment a place in the voting booth in the November elections. Liberal opponents of the bill fear that it is unconstitutional on the grounds that it violates constitutional guarantees of the -separation of church and state.

Unique Overseas Experience For 21 Cape Cod Boys When flight 054 departs from Logan International Airport in Boston at 8 Friday night, April 10, there will be no fanfare, brass band or hullabaloo but for 21 Cape Codders it will mark the beginning of an experience of a lifetime. The group, known as the Cape Cod American Austria, Italy and Spain. Ambassadors also travel to Portugal, Sports Ambassadors, will be Russia and the South Pacific on its way over-seas to take area. in visits to Stockholm, Helsinki, Leningrad, Moscow along with East and West Berlin. The Ambassadors will be participtating in a program that commenced in 1965 with the objective of fostering "international knowledge and understanding through educational travel and sports." The program idea originated with an American teacher on exchange in a British secondary school in 1963. As a result, 50 prep school American Sports Ambassadors journeyed abroad to engage in basketball, ice hockey and soccer contests in England, Scotland and Scandinavia. Since that time, the program has been extended to include France, Switzerland, Germany, Holland,

The Cape group will engage in sightseeing trips, school visits and basketball games and clinic in the European cities that they visit. Coach Leo Miller of Nauset Regional will act as group leader for the Cape hoopsters. He will be assisted by Paul White. The youngsters, all of whom competed in either the Cftpeway Conference or Cape and Islands League this past Winter, have been practicing under the watchful eye of Coach Miller in preparation for the contests against their European counlerparts. In addition to practice sessions, the Cape Ambassadors have entertained and competed against a group of 15 basketball players from the London area.

"I'm looking forward to the season with eager eyes and a heart full of hope." That: was the way Bishop Stang High baseball coach John O'Brien summed up his thoughts on the upcoming diamond campaign. " For' the affable Spartan athletic director, baseball is a new experience. For nine years, the Somerset resident has been an "indoorsman," guiding the fortunes of the Stang basketball teams. "I've never worn a hat, let alone take over a baseball team," confessed O'Brien. The Spartan AD took over the reins when last year's coach, Jerry Cunniff, accepted a teaching-coach position at Bishop Feehan. Admittedly inexperienced in the field of "signalsending," O'Brien possesses enough knowledge of athletics to do an outstanding job. He proved his astute 'coaching ability this past season when he guided his Spartans to an outstanding 11-6 record despite a serious shortage of height and a roster weighted down with unaerclassmen. Dubbed the "mini-mob", the Spartans were the talk of the Bristol County League during the final three weeks of the season as they battled for a berth in the annual Tech Tournament.

Endorses p'resident's Education Message JEFFERSON CITY (NC) Spokesmen for the education department of the Missouri Catholic Conference announced here that the department had endorsed President Nixon's education message' to Congress. Officials of the department pledged to put "the full resources of the department of education at the disposal of the President's Commission on School Finance," despite its own severe financial problems. The Catholic Conference statement added: "We agree with the President that the non public schools provide a healthy competition and diversity in educa-. tion .. * * .'~ "Above all, we are encouraged by the President's recognition of the important contribution that Catholic and other nonpublic schools are making to the spirital and moral formation of our future citizens."

"Without hitting practicc, it's hard to tell just how we'll be, but I do know one thing"" * we'll be in great shape." Stang had in the neighborhood of 60 candidates report for the initial drill. From that number, O'Brien and assistant Henry Fortin will trim the list to 15-20. "That's always a problem, whether it be in basketball or baseball," says the Stang mentor. "You always let a good boy go." . But it's a cinch he won't let too many "good" ones get away.

Oldest Youth Publication Dies at 85 DAYTON (NC)-Founded as an antidote -to the "dime novels" .of the last century and familiar in Catholic classrooms for 85 years, the Catholic Messenger series of periodicals has come to the end of the line. . George A. Pflaum, Jr., grandson of the original publisher, announced the discontinuance. He said his firm, which bears. the family 'name, would con<;:entrate in other areas of the religious education field. "In the past few years," Pflaum said, "it has become increasingly .ev.ident that· the need has declined for general . interest magazines such as J:he Messengers, covering several areas of the curriculum. "Because of departmentalization and falling enrollment in our schools, there is no longer sufficient demand for specifically Catholic .periodicals which, in addition to religion, cover such areas as current affairs, and the language arts." . Award Winners Young Catholic Messenger, the oldest youth publication in the nation, served the junior high school level. Its first companion publication, Junior Catholic Messenger, was begun in 1934, and Our Little Messenger, for the primary grades, in 1939. Starting in 1939, the Messen. gers were also issued in Confra· ternity editions, designed to aid in the. religious instruction of Catholic children attending public schools. These editions were replaced by the Witness/Discover series of periodicals in 1964, which will continue publication. Over. the years; the Messen, gers have won awards for their outstanding work from the Cath-. olic Press Association and other organizations. One CPA citation pointed out that the Messengers were the only Catholic publications that could be compared favorably with their counterparts in the secular field. Visual Aids. In addition to Witness/Discover, Pflaum, which has been a division of Stanard International Corporation since 1968, also publishes a children's comic book, Treasure Chest, and sever,al professional teachers' magazines, Today's Catholic Teacher, The Catechist and Modern Media Teacher. Its expanding education division is concentrating in fields of film education and guidance, as well as religious education rna· terials. Its textbooks, Exploring ,the Film, are used in both Catholic and public high schools, as is, its new guidance program, Dimensions of Personality. The Pflaum education division also publishes the Christian Ex· perience and Christian Identity paperback series for high school, college and adult education, 'an extensive variety of visual aids for use in religious education programs, and the Prep Program, literature series for junior high schools. • The education division is cur· rently developing teacher .train· ing programs as well as numer- \j. ous other materials of interest \ 'to Catholic and public s.<:hool ed,ucators.
