If the churches of the Diocese are in darkness on the eve of Easter, it

will not be because of a power failure-at least we hope not. It will simply

mean that the people of God are ready to take an active part in the greatest'

'event of the whole year, the Easter Vigil. The darkened church is

Supreme' Pontiff To ,Give Easter Talk on TV


VATICAN CIT~ (NC) ­ His Holmess Pope Pius XII will" deliver his' traditional Easter message from' the

~ntral balcony of St. Peter's Basilica at noon Rome time (6 a.m., E.S.T.). The Pope's speech and his blessing will be telecast by Eurovision, TV network cover­ ing ,all free nations, of Western Europe. The topic of the Pope's' address was not immediately announced. Last year his ,Easter message' stressed that scientific and tech­ nical advances can' bring the world hope and peace only if they are accoDlpanied by an ac­ ~ptance of c;hrist's message. When His Holiness Pope piu!! XII appears on the balcony of St. Peter's it will be 11 years since he established the Easter discourse 'and bless'ing as an an­ ,Dual occurrence. The first time the .HolyFather Inaugurated this direct Easter eontaCt with theCaithful of the world was in 1948. On that 'occasion he gave an address on the ,"Christian' Conscience." He 'laid: ' "Th~ 'great hour oC' the' Chris­ tian conscience has sounded. We invite all of you. 0 people of Rome, 0 people of Italy, 0 peo­ ple of the world, to unity, to . concord, to love. to peaceful thoughts and intentions."Ever since that fir~t Easter discourse-with only two excep­ tions, in 1949 and 1950-the an­ nual message and blessing has been repeated. Each time it has been more or less on the same theme-peace-and each time it has been a short 10-minute ad­ dress of about 2,500 words.

Calls on Others

To Follow Lead·

Of Labor Unions

'CHICAGO (NC) - A top labor leader challenged other organized groups to start working as labor has done to clean its ranks of racketeers. George M. Harrison, president of the Brotherhood of Railway Clerks and an AFL-CIO vice president, said "In the past five years, the labor movement has been investigated by five Con­ gress committees and all of these committees have turned up only lOme 40 corrupt trade union officials. "There may be more, but ev·en If the number is multiplied many times it will be a small portion of the 16,000 fUll-time paid national and international officers and the 420,000 local union officials in the AFL-CIO's affiliated unions," he noted. He said that when top labor officials found corruption they expelled unions which had been proved guilty, and they spelled out ground rules for the future c:onduct of unions. "The AFL-CIO has already expelled six unions. Has any business group, doctors' group, lawyers' group or any financial group expelled six of its sub­ aidiary .bodies?" he asked. "The American labor move­ ment of the future is going to be cleaner, more effective and bigger, unless its enemies suc­ eeed in enacting state and Fed­ eral legislation that will place labor unions in a strait-jacket," he concluded.

Says Movie Ads Getting Worse ALBANY (NC) Motion picture advertising "is becoming increasingly objectionable," a c:ommittee of the New York state legislature has declared. The Joint, Legislative Com­ mittee on Offensive and Ob­ acene Material takes exception to the "lurid displays to attract the prurient minded, and the ,arish presentations of horror and terror" which it said, are becoming increasingly common in movie ads. ' The committee pointed out that such advertisements in newspapers and on billboards "frequently distort the charac­ ter or content of the motion pic­ tures actually shown." State obscenity statutes, the c:ommittee report added', "will be fruitless without greater in­ terest, assistance and coOpera­ thm on the part Of the c:otirts.: '

Use TV to Cover Up Own Faults COLOGNE (NC)-Parents too often blame television for abuses for which they themselves are to blame. Dr. Gertrud Simmerding of· the Bavarian TV network placed some of the blame for poor TV programs directly on the shoul­ ders of parents. ­ ''Too often parents use TV as a substitute for proper 'care of their children. They simply turn on the set and leave the child alone to imbibe anything that happens to come on. Children need parental guidance in the selection and interpretation of certain shows. Certain programs are harmful simply because no adult is there to explain to the child what is going on and what OFFICERS A-T PREVOST: Representing the Freshman A group at Prevost High attitude ought to be taken to­ School, Fall River, as class officers are, left to right, Vice-president Maurice Philibert, ward the events being shown," President Richard Bourgeois, Secretary Ronald Berube al)d Treasurer Michael Larrivee. she said.

Reds Reject Prayer Books for Hungary VIENNA (NC) - Communist eustoms officials have turned back 60,000 children'. prayer books being st!nt to Father Vas, a religion teacher in Kaposvar in southwestern Hungary. They were part of a consign­ ment of 100,000 prayer books ordered from St. Severin's Mis­ sionhouse in Fuerstenfeld, Aus­ tria. The other 40,000' books were delivered.. The 60,000 were turned back for the "Ueged lack of an im­ port license. The incident is be­ lieved to have been caused by a ~inor official· who exceeded his authority. It is hoped here that compiaints made to the Hungarian government will re­ sult in the delivery of the rest of the prayer books.

Providence Chorale On Radio Su~day


ASHINGTON. (NC) - The first performance of "Ingrediente Domine," a new musical work by Father Russell Woollen will be presented on the Catho'lic Hour radio program at 2:30 Sunday afternoon, March 30. Father Woollen is director of chorus and liturgical music ac­ tivities at the Catholic Univer­ sity of America. "Ingrediente Domine" will be sung by the Peloquin Chorale of Providence.

Behind the confusion lies the . failure to define, plus extrava-­ gance in rhe­ toric. The critics have not told us what they are tal kin g about. What is education? What should it pro d u c e? In what is Catholic education strong~~st, in what weakest? What is an intellectual? Such questions have' been left aside. Complicating the confusion is the tenaciously surviving "man bites dog" philosophy of jour­ nalism. The fact that the critics did not take the scholarly approach, but indulged in sensational gen­ eralizations, had much to do with the fact that they captured head­ lines. The press left the public, by and large, with one impression: a couple of Catholic educatol'l had. bitten the dog of CatholiC: education. Most readers, I 'suppose, sim­ ply let it go at that. How sorely Catholic education was wounded fa anybody's guess. Servioe Performed fi. few obser.vers seized upon Father Cavanaugh's rhetorical query/ "Where are the Catholic Einsteins, Oppenheimers, Salks," a'nd created a diversion by de­ nouncing Dr. Oppenheimer and the late Dr. Einstein for their religious views and their asso­ ciations. . Catholic education then was congratulated for not having produced Oppenheimers and Einsteins. That, I suppose was a neat debating trick, but it had noth­ ing to do with the question at issue. Others took the comfortable position that although Msgr. Ellis and Father Cavanaugh per­ haps went off the deep end, nev­ ertheless they performed a serv­ ice by jolting us out of our al­ leged complacency. This sounds suspiciously lik~ arguing that the end excuses the means--or' at least the method. Critios of Critics Still others held that the two critics had made a public rela­ tions blunder in not keeping the dispute within the family. May­

attack upon the alleged unschol­ arliness of American Catholics. All in all, I disagree not only with the critics, but with tho critics of the critics. Nothing could be healthier than discussion of American edu­ cation-eatholic or not-if only ~he debate were rational, and concerned solely with improve­ ment of schools, and not wilb. charges and counter-charges. Until recently, anybody who asked questions about schools, whether public or independent, was considered outside the pale.' Parents were expected to do and die and not to reason why. If we are going to discuss what ought to be done to make schoow better, we must begin by decid­ ing what education is for. Father .Cavanaugh, in a second. talk defending his first talk, em­ phasized that the specific pur­ pose of schools is to' educate tho mind, and that piety is no au.... stitute for learning. Eduoate Whole Man P.artly true, but partly not. There is more to education thaa training the intellect. The whole man must be formed-all the wonderful complex of body ancl soul, intellect and will, emotiorw and all the rest. "Education" without wisdolll and goodness is not education at all.' It is rather like teaching tricjts to animals. If Americana are somewhat anti-intellectual, it is at least partly because some badly educated intellectuals have demonstrated themselves to be fools or worse. What the nation wants frolll its educators is humble deter­ mination to give America.. youth the best in every field at education - including spiritual and moral nobility. 'This should be our concern-without accu­ sations or rhetorical questions, and with reference not to Who'. Who, but to what'll what, and what ought to be.

S"rives to Achieve Perfec.tion of Democracy

Considine Urges Boa rd to Offset Red Propaganda

By Most Rev. Robert J. Dwyer, D.D. . Bishop of Reno


WASHINGTON (NC)­ Formation of a board of leading American experts in the communications field to

"The conversion of the American people to the Catholic

faith has ripened into a conviction with me which lies beyond the region of doubt. My life, my labors, and my death is consecrated to it." The busy pen scratched on 'and the easy, rhetoric of men while Father Isaac Hecker like Henry Clay and Daniel confided his dream to his Webster. The mental wrestling with the correspondent. It wa,s hard­ ly a year' since that astonishing

reversal of fortune in the sum­ mer of 1858 had opened the way for the estab­ lishment of the Paulist e.o m­ munity and the launching ,of his American missionary' ex­ periment. H e was still aglow with that "first fine car e 1 e s s rapture" known to great. and generous souls. There is little question but that Hecker, at the o\ltset, was confident of immediate and spec­ t:tcularresults. It is easy .enough to write him off as a heady dreamer, and it is certainly true that· he badly misjudged' the toughness and durability o~ American, Protestantism. . It might have been to his ad­ vantage hBJi he been able, during, those months of 1858, to sit down with the aging 'Count Alexis. de Toqueville and compare ~otes on the prospects and possibili­ ties' of a Catholic conquest of the new' Republic.. :, The older man would have sympathized, doubtless, bui he ,would have tempered Hecj{er's zeal with his own sterner real­ ism. Perhaps it was just as 'w~ll that Hecker's enthusiasm was to 8Muire its own te~pering. Enthusiasm R'emains . ~or a man like' Hecker was bound to stub his toe. The amaz­ ing thing abo.tit· him is that it did not. embitter him. Long before he died in 1888 he had come to the realization that the task to which he had so blithely dedicated his life, labors, and death, was of incomparably greater magnitude than he had first conceived. The 30 years of his activity as an apostle of American Caiholi­ cism; while successful to a. de­ gree, fell far short of what lie had hoped for. What might have beeri a temptation to discouragi­ ment was blunted by his tem­ peramental buoyancy and his honest correspondence with grace.' His enthusiasm was ~s vibra~t at the end as in, bis heyday. It was Hecker's' abiding con­ viction that America needed only. to be 'assured that Catholi­ cism and democracy were com­ patiblEi for the floodgates of con­ versions to be opened. He eagerly grasped it as .,his mission to preach that compatibility with all the eloquence at his com­ mand and by all the means his ingenuity hit upon. -. Actually, he refused to be con-' fined by the concept of mere compatability. He would assert,. in season and out, that the two were m'ated by the divinity that shapes our ends and were des­ tined by a kindly providence. to progress ,from strength to strength in this new world' of ' promise. Hecker' could never reconcile himself to pluralism in America. . Magnificent Unity It was strong' doctrine ' to preach in the hearing of con­ servatives of whatever religious persuasion. However tliey felt about his dream of a Catholic America, from warm e,ndorse­ ment to violent reaction,. they were far from sharing his views on democracy. It was his weakne'ss that he was ,never able to subject his democratic theory. to ~igorous examination; he lacked .both the time and the' intellechJ~1 acu­ men. 'He took his ideas: on the, subject ready-made; with a'

problem of his old Brook Farm associate and fellow convert, Orestes Brownson, was' always a' trifle incomprehensible to him, arid he was prone to dismiss it with impatience. The solution was so clear: Catholicism was right, democracy was right; to­ gether they made not two' rights but a single magnificent and self-evident. unity. Our 'Hope Identical There is no doubt, all the same, that Isaac Hecker fulfilled an essential ftinction in the his­ tory of the. Church in America. If he was flot the first to voice the harmony and concord of the Faith and our repu1::l\ican insti- I,' tutions, he spoke out at a time when an immigrant Church needed a powerful advocate. ,He had the native accent, even the twang, and he ha~ a vivid sense of the urgency' of hi.s message. If he was surprised and hurt thal-so few came all the way over to his way of think­ ing and believing, he could take comfort in the evident ameliora­ tion of popular prejudice which resulted from his speaking' and writing and from the apostolate of his devoted followers. . After all, it is' hardly fair to ask of a man more than his endow­ ment or his opport,unity ena'bles him to give. -Hecker was. no genius, perhaps not even a pass­ able' philosopher, but· ·he was a man who had gotten hold of a truth and would never let go. Nor have we, God knows, any, reason to patronize his memory. His' zeal was a consuming fire, and his almost instinctive recog­ nition of the importance of the reconciliation of the Faith and democracy was in itself of enor­ mous significance. If we are forced to .admit that .the problem is less simple than his analysis would make it, our hope is identical with his. For today; 100 years after'he' penned his consecration, we are' still striving to perfect' a democracy which will render to God the things, 'that are God's, and t6 Caesar the things that are Caesar's. .

Says Laity Best S£tua"eC: to ~~tOW World America's Vocation as Nation

Gates Speaking Invite Causes Many Protests DALLAS (NC)-A storm of controversy has been created bY' an invitation ex­ tended to John Gates, fOQl1er editor of the defunct Daily Worker newspaper, to $peak April 23 at Southern Methodist University. The invitation to the one-time editor of the communist daily organ was made by the Univers­ ity's Student Forum. It was immediately criticized by the Public Affairs Luncheon Club here. Other citizen's groups joined in the opposition, and the SMU Campus, university semiweekly newspaper said in an editorial: "SMU has no responsibility to provide a forum for an atheist and for one who has been con­ victed of conspiracy." Changes Stand Tbe controversy was height­ ened when it was announced that Herbert Philbrick, former FBI counterspy, had been in­ vited to serve on a forum of cross-examiners for Gates. Gates and Philbrick have been bitter foes ever since 1949 when they faced each other in a New York City courtroom where Gates was on trial. Gates was LEADER OF YOUTH: His Holiness is shown bless­ convicted of advocating violent ing Italian Catholic Action Youth Members in St. Peter's revolution against the U. $. gov­ ernment and 'sentenced to the Square, NC Photo., Atlanta Federal Penitentiary.

Indian Government Now 'Admits Need for Religion in Schools


Plans Only Approved Movies

BUFFALO (NC) - A down­ town movie theater devoted ex­ elusively to family entertain­ ment will be opened here in April by a religious community which specializes in the use of modern communications. "The Catholic Theater" sched­ ule calls for programs only on Sunday afternoon and evening. Bishop Joseph A. Burke of Buffalo granted permission for the 'TX!periment to the Pious So-,

ciety of St. Paul, a community of men founded in Italy in 1914 and now working in, two arch­ dioceses and two dio,ceses in the United States. The theater's purpose is not to compete with commercial movie houses, but rather to stim­ ulate exhibitors to present de­ cent films. Only films classified as family entertainment by the National Legion of Decency will be presented. '

Msgr. ·Freking described the opportunities for helping newly developing countries as adding up to a picture of possible world service in the lay apostolate for Catholic Americans. He said that America's wealth of natural resources and the varied skills 'of its technologists can be shared with other coun­ tries, but he warned of the need

Congressman Says Tax, Exemption ,ToPrivoteSchoOI5 :15 Bargain SACREMENTO (NC) - COD­ gresSman Clair Engle of Cali_­ fonda mid here that tax exemp­ tion ,of' private schools "is • good bargain and shouldn't be undermined." Rep. Engle declared: "In my view, the tax exemption, these scbools receive is 'little enough recognition for the burden they lift off the back of every tax­ payer in the state." He said "the record is clear" that private, nonprofit sch,ools "render a substantial public ser­ vice." He added that "the ratio between, the actual saving in public school taxes-$118,OOO,OOO -and the tax exemption granted nonprofit schools~$1,800,OOO ­ is 65 to ,I, according to the State Board of Equalization and State Controller's statistics." "I think this is 'a good par­ gain," lie concluded, "and, shouldn't' be undermined." 'The California Register-Paja­ ronian has charged an organiza­ tion which advocates taxing private schools with circulating incorrect information. The daily newspaper described a press release from "Californi­ ans for Public Schools," as say­ ing the U. S. Supreme Court h:is held tax exemption for parochi­ al schools is unconstitutional.

The newspaper Said • letter was sent to "Californians for Public Schools" r~uesting evi­ dence to support the statement. The publication said • reply from the organi:z;ation's northern California chairman conceded he did not know of any legal basis. "We haven't had a peep of further explanation," said the Register-Pajaronian. "Californians for Pub 1 i c Schools" is spearheading an ef­ fort to reimpose property taxa­ tiOI} on private, nonprofit schools below the collegiate level. This tax was lifted in 1956. California was the 'last of the 48 states to exempt such schools. The California Republican As­ sembly and the executive board of,the Democratic State Central Committee have adopted reso­ lutions saying it is against the public interest ~o reimpose prop­ f:lrty taxes on private schools.

The ehalice of the Mass Is at onee a glorious symbol of the love of Christ for each of us and a vibrant means of our sanctification. The night before He died. the Son of Man raised the chalice of His Blood and thus began the final days In which His love for us would lead Him to the death of the Cross. The ralslnr of the Chaliee In the Upper Room is eontinued in the Saerlfiee of the Mass:. It Is through this offering of Christ that we have His life today and the pledge of His glory on the morrow of eternity. At the Holy Sepul­ ilher, early OD Easter morn, His Beatitude. the Latin Patriarch will offer' a Pontifical Mass for you, your loved oneS. and for your spe­ elal intentions. Immediately following the Patriarch, ten of your missionaries will each offer a Mass for the same intention.

LISLE (NC) - His Eminence Samuel Cardinal Stritch, newly appointed Pro-Prefect of the Sacred Congregation for the Propagation of the Faith, has been honored here by St. Pro­ copius Abbey for his work fur Catholic unity. The Archbishop of Chicago was awarded the abbey's Uniias Medal by Benedictine Abbot AmbroseL. Ondrak. The citation accompanying the medal said that Cardinal Stritch "has incessantly striven with heart and mind for the extension and preservation of Catholic unity." Church Example In accepting the award, the Cardinal said "the modern world needs a concept of the monastic role of 'pray and work'." "The real unity in the Church is the acceptance of the Divine origin of the Church," he stated, "and its test is the acceptance, by all, of St. Peter as the first vicar of Christ.' ' He added that an example of the Church's unity today. is the new post given him by His HoB­ neSs Pope Pius XII, whereby he becomes the first American-born Cardinal to serve in the Vatican Curia. Cardinal Stritch is scheduled to leave Chicago April 15 for Rome to take up his duties as Pro-Prefect of the Sacred Congregation for the Propaga­ tion of the Faith., Hogan, former director of the school.

Continued from Paa-e One

The Marches are known, not to

abandon their sacred national

tl'aditioDs and not to fall "ictim

to the fear being spread about

that "Christianity may take

from Caesar what Ia Caesar'.."

Heart of Church

Saying that be wished to pro­ pose thoughts to them which would help them to be "g~ Marchigiani, good Italians and good Christians," he cautioned them, in the same order, against provincialism, against the loss of a world outlook, and the 10811 of family values. "Italy, conceived and willed by God as· the seat of the Church," the Pope said, "was the object of His special love and one of His special actions. Thus, . no other nation has its destinies so closely linked with the work of Christ as has Italy • • • but precisely because the heart of the Church is in Italy, it can easily be understood· that the enemies of God press their ef­ forts to spread the discord of subversion and the poison of batred in this country." Good Italians with a world outlook must also be good Chris­ tians, the Pontiff pointed out, for there is only one way of giving attention to the world, "while .till loving your province and your country: you must become conscious of one supreme real­ ity-the Church." Anti-Clerical Campaign The Pope called upon his listeners to become good Chris­ tians by making their families living members of the Church. He said th!lt the Holy ,House of Loreto, which stands in The Marches region, should be their inspiration .for following the Holy Family. Referring to the present anti­ clerical campaign, he said: "There are people m Italy who are worried because they fear that Christianity may take from Caesar what is Caesar's. As if to give Caesar what is his were not the command of Jesus; as if the legitimate soundness of the laity in that state were not one of the principles. of Christian doctrine; as if the continlled effort to keep the distinction as well as thc unity-a unity which is al~ays in keeping with honest principles - between the two' powers (Church and State) were not a tradition of the Church; as if history itself had not shown that the mixing of the sacred and thc profane were not always the more strongly felt when a part of the faithful' had separated themselves from the Church."

Special Teacher,


Continued from Pa&'c One generosity of Duvernay Council 42 of L'Union S1. Jean Baptiste d'Amerique, whose members have become very active and interested in her efforts and have .upplied the special equipment she needs. She finds film strips extremely effective and uses them especially in teaching phonics and science. Each E'riday is devoted to manual training or shop work. The current project of the boys is a flag stand for the parish Boy Scout troop, of which her pupils are members. Each completed project is placed on exhibition at the troop meetings. It is planned to give the boys special instruction so that they can meet the tenderfoot and second class requirements. Preparation tor Sacraments Among her other duties Sis­ ter Gabrielle Lucie has volun­ teered to hclp a young nun make the altar boy program more efficient. Under her guidance the number of boys seeking ad­ mission into this group is mount­ ing and she is now making plans to enroll all of them in. the Knights of the Altar. She is giving instructions to 'six members of her special class in preparation for receiving' the Sacrament of Confirmation, and on Holy Thursday, a 21-year­ old Mongoloid who has res­ ponded to her patient effort and instructions will receive b~ First Holy Communion.

Science Fair ConUn1led from Paa-e ODe that we shall hold our First An­ nual Diocesan Science Fair on April 24 and 25, 1958 in the Dominican Academy Auditori­ um, 37 Park ;Street, Fall River. We have chosen the dates and the place so that the teachers attending our Convention will also be able conven,iently to viait the Fair. It will also be open to the public. The pdmary pu~ of the

win be permitted to send In one exhibit for every fifty pupils of its total enrollment. We shall accept only material that is being .exhibited for the first time. The only exception to this rule will be that a school may have its own Fair for the purpose of selecting its repre­ sentatives to the Diocesan Sci­ ence Fair. . The basis for judging the best exhibits will follow rather close­ ly the standards used by the Massachusetts Science'Fair Com­ mittee..

Fair will be to encourage our science students to pursue their studies beyond the limits of the high school curriculum and by personal investigation and study .to produce original .achieve-:­ ments in the field of science. Although we must still work out some of the detail of the plans, we are sending you the following. definite information which you may give to your students. The detailed plan will be released as soon as compiled. The number of exhibits will be limited. Every high school









The following awards win he made: First Prize-$lOO.OO; Sec­ ond ,Prize-$50.00; Third Prize -$25.00. These awards will be made directly to the students and not to the schools, The win­ ners of the three awards will be invited to represent the diocese at the Massachusetts Science Fair at Boston. Every student exhibiting will receive a CerU­ ficate of Merit. We sincerely hope that every high school in our diocese will be represented at our Science Fair.
