'Christian Opinion. Shows, I~creas~d Understanding of Israel's I'leeds WASHINGTON (NC)-Roman Catholic and Protestant opinion, as .reflected in major periodicals published in this' coun'try, re-' centIy has shown increasing understanding of Israel's security needs and support of Israel's sovereignty, a study by the, American Jewish Committee disclosed.. Details of the study of the American Christian press, were reported here at a meeting of the committee's policy-making board of governors. 'Rabbi Marc' H. Tanenbaum, national interreligious affairs director, in an, interview with the -New York Times, said that much liberal· Protestant opinion had ,shifted from a previously "critical position toward Israel to a more sympathetic and evenhanded understanding." The committee's report quotes 'Father John 'Sheerin, editor of the Paulist magazine, The Catholic World, as saying that Israel's "existence is every bit as valid as that of numerous other states whose legality is never questioned." ' The study quoted the ,Rev. Alan Geyer, Protestant editor of The Christian Century, a national ecumenical journal, as saying that "the human rights of Israelis and the sovereign rights of Israel are powerful and legitimate claims upon a religiously grounded sense of justice." Spiritual Meaning The study quotes, as another ~ample of the shift of Christian editorial thinking, a joint editorial that appeared in the March, 1970 issues of the United Church Herald, official journal of the United Church ,of Christ, and The Lamp, publication of the Roman' Catholic order of the Graymoor Fathers. The editorial signed by the Rev. Martin Bailey, the Protestant editor, and Father Charles Angell, the Catholic editor, deplored, "glaring anti-Jewish statements from otherwise re-

spected Christian leaders" that they encountered on a recent fact-finding tour in the Middle East. Rabbi Tanenbaum said: "This editorial trend is linked with a new growth in recent months in' 'intellectual understanding on the part of Christian scholars :and leaders that Israel increasingly has deep spiritual and theological' meaning for Christianity :as it has' for Judaism.';

DENVER (NC)-A Jesuit theologian 'said here no apology is necessary to secular humanists from Christianity because in the Catholic tradition, it cont,inuously has cared about man. Father William J. Sullivan, S.J., told the second Mile Hi Re~ Iigious Education Congress here, Christianity has been criticized in two particular areas-slavery and the role of women. He added no apology is necessary in' these areas either. The acting chairman of Marquette University's theology de-. pllrtment, said: "Secular humanism is dominate in universities today, and that includes Catholic universities too." Secular humanism is critical of Christianity and includes a focus on man himself, but the test of any philosophy, ideology or religion, according to secular humanists, is its ultimate concern for the well being of man, Father Sullivan said. Youth continuously asks what difference . Christianity makes concerning the well being of man, he added. Relational Concept Father Sullivan said within Christian revelation, there is a strong anthropological bias with a message for man. The Gospel is not about God, it· is about man in relation to God, he said. The Gospel is man-oriented because of the relational concept of the Father throughout the New Testament; the Incarnation with man as a model for God's rresence on earth, the worllJ was created for man, he declared. "No o'ther religion or philosophy gives the individual tlie significance that Christianity gives him. A tremendous importance was placed on individual human being because Christ died for individuals. Even the resurrection, the most exalted situation, is in relation to man," he said. 'Father Sullivan said the . Church actually is the force which destroyed slavery, and the Church is responsible for the improved role of women. Both came about because of Christianity's emphasis on the individual value of each person, he declared.

CLEVELAND (NC)-Father Donald E. Heintschel, new president of the National Association of Vicars for Religious, believes American nuns are a generation ahead of the' rest of the Church in renewal. Father Heintschel said if adaptation means changing exter- ' nals of life and renewal general added. The Sister trained in education has more to offer means changing interior life, than just teaching the young. It then priests have not ye.t is a waste of talent, she opined,

begun the updating called for by the Second Vatican Council. "In Vatican II the men of the Church decided there was to be an aggiornamento. In America, at least, it is the women of the Church who are most bent on bringing - and sometimes dragging-the rest of the people of God into the contemporary world," the Toledo diocesan priest asserted, adding: U. S. Sisters now are showing a primary concern for prayer-a "mark of interior change." Father Heintschel. questions whether priests have begun examining the externals of their lives and adapting to the n~odern world. "Perhaps the pattern set at Vatican II is right. Men should think out the idea and let Religious women carry them out. The Religious have been the safeguards of the faith for centuries. And, they will continue being that for many years to come," he told clergy conference here in Ohio at which nuns, for the first time, were among the speakers. Much to Contribute Sister Mary Brigid Griffin, superior general, Sisters of St. Joseph of Cleveland, said a nun's life-style formerly was ordered on the idea that the world stopped at 10 nightly. Now, she added, Sisters are beginning to find out the worJd is just coming to life then. To relate to the world, Sisters have to change their rule in order to be "where the people are when they need us," S'ister Brigid declared. The nun has much to contribute to the adult world and, therefore, . needs more relationship with adults, she stressed. Sister Brigid noted that in evaluating the purpose of the Sisterhood in the light of the Gospels and the needs of the contemporary world, not only must rules be changed but also nuns' religious garb. The habit, she said, must not set a nun apart from the world so she gives the impression of being either a "super-saint" or an inferior person. Waste of Talent "The modern Sister," she added, "wants to be recognized. and valued as a person, as a woman. The habit and the rule had all but destroyed her individuality." She observed the concept of sanctity formerly was conformity to the rule-nothing more and nothing less, because the rule was the will of God. The apostolate of the community, its life-work should also be guided by the needs of the contemporary world, .the superior

Plan College Credit Classes for Police NEW ORLEANS (NC)-Loyola University soon will begin teaching college credit classes to New Orleans police recruits. Father Homer Jolley, University president, said the first class will be a one-credit course in hasic English. Later, classes in sociology and psychology will be offered. The classes are part of a joint university-city effort to upgrade the education level of city police I officers.

to confine Sisters with masters and doctors degrees to 'teaching grade school students when they could be working effectively with adults. Male Ego Threat Sister Brigid !laid nuns would be given more meaningful assignments in a parish, if pastors would evaluate them as adult individuals. The Ohio Sister was joined by a panel of seven other nuns who gave an eye-view of renewal through a question-and·answer format, with priests asking the questions. Tensions in the parish between priests and Sisters is "not pitting priest against Sister." It is "man against woman," the panelists maintained. Seminarians (and priests) need to be taught the psychology of sex if the relationship between priests and Sisters is to be improved, it was emphasized. The Sisters agreed the feminist movement may be "a real threat to the male ego" but Sisters feel no real need to become involved in it. Pastor Problems Pastors came in for panel criticism. Pastors, the Sisters said, have "a tendency to treat us as little children or as puppets to do their work. They will not' listen to us when we have much to contribute to the parish life." Sisters. find no difficulty-in adapting to 'modern Iife-workwith their motherhouse. They have no trouble getting' along with assistant pastors, the panelists agreed. "It is the pastor who' is our problem. Pastors do not seem to dialog with us any more willingly than they do with their assistants. Frequently just one person, the pastor, blocks any progress in renewal," the panelists maintained.

C,harge Bias in Use Of Federal Funds NEW YORK (NC)-Representatives of four major religious bodies have charged the city of New York with discrimination against non-public schools in its administration of Federal funds. Catholic, Greek Orthodox, Protestant and Jewish leaders said that although religious schools teach some 14 per cent of the city's school children, they were getting only four per cent of Federal funds supplied under Title I of 1965's Elementary and Secondary Education Act. Members of the group threatened to seek a court injunction to stop all aid distribution under the Title I provision. Msgr. Eugene J. Molloy, chairman of the Committee of Non-Public School Officials of the City of New York and education secretary of the Brooklyn diocese, said: "For five years we have refused to take such action be-' cause of our moral concern for the grave needs of children in the public schools of the city of New York. However, the cumulative injustice to eligible children in non-public schools, the vast majority of whom are black and Puerto Rican, compels us reluctantly to adopt this position."

Survey Sermons Poll Shows California Ministers Avoid Controversial Issues . DEL MAR (NC~A poll disclosed "the vast majority" among 1,580 clergymen of nine Protestant denominations in California have made no 'statement on such issues as the Vietnam War, the grape pickers boycott and the racial crisis. Dr. Rodney Stark of the University of California at Berkeley, who headed the survey, commented: "When we analyzed the results, we began to see why Christian congregations have been so unshaken by years of sermonizing. It turns out that whether or not people Hsten, there is not much to hear. Most sermons rarely toucn on controversial m'oral and ethical issues." The survey showed: "Only 22 per cent of' the clergymen surveyed delivered sermons on the grape workers strike, for or against." "A third of the ministers never mentioned the war in Vietnam frort their pulpits, one way or the other, even in passing." "The majority of the clergy had not devoted a single sermon on racial problems from the late spring of 1967 to the spring of 1968.,; (It was noted that during this period. racial violence and burnings broke out in a number of cities, the Kerner report on civil disorders was issued, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was slain, triggering another series of riots.) Dr. Stark was assisted in the survey by Dr. Bruce Foster, Berkeley sociologist, and Dr. 'Charles

Y. Glock, chairman of the university. sociology department. Their findings will be published in the April issue of Psychology Today magazine, 'which sponsored the survey and described it as "the largest ever undertaken to examine the political beliefs of any body of clergymen." '

BONN (NC)-Freedom of information will be a top item for discussion at coming sessions of the Polish Bishops' Conference. Cardinal Stef~n Wyszynski of Warsaw told a meeting of Warsaw priests. According to reports received here, the cardinal commented that although Poland has some publications that are called Catholic, "we do not, in fact, .have a Catholic press." He said the publications permitted .to operate must present their material "from dictation" or according to "recipes worked out for individual publishing concerns and imposed on them as . conditions for continued publication. The cardinal cited the weekly Siowo Powszechne, organ of the government-supported Pax Movement of Progressive Catholics. He said that that paper recently published a speech of Pope Paul VI, which, according to the cardinal, was a falsified version because the passages quoted were selected "in accordance with tl)e recipes." For this reason, he said, Catholics in Poland cannot obtain a true picture of the Pope's idea on various current subjects. .

New Forms of, Ministries: Church's Pastoral- -Mission (Substituting for Msgr. George Higgins this week as author of the following column is Father P. David Finks, director of communications of the Task Force on Urban Problems, United States Catholic Conference.)

There will be a grand fiesta in San Antonio, Texas, when Father Pat Flores of Houston, Texas,·will be ordaitted to the episcopate, on May 5. The Chicanos say that the appointment of this first Spanish-surnamed Bishop in the whole United States richly The point of the film is that deserves a fiesta. This Chi- there is npt a social, _action cano bishop is the first fruit agenda for the Church' that is of a new coalition within the optional and secondary to the Catholic Church in the United States. Mexican - American priests mainly ,in, the Southwest formed an organizatioJ;l' only a few months' ago. They named their association Padres (Priests Associated for Religious, Educative and Social Rights.) With the support of HispanlcAmerican lay people and, several' varieties of "Anglo~' clergy working in ..Mexican-American , parishes, they are already meeting with the National Conference of Catholic Bishops_ to -develop in coalition _a new style of Church mission among the 12 million Catholics of Hispanic-, Am~rican origin in the U.

The National Federation of Priests ;Co'uncils met with 450 delegates in San Diego; the first national Conference on Pastoral Councils convened in D~yton, Ohio, and the bishops' conference has formed a special committee of c1er~ and lay people to study the feasibilitv of a National Pastoral' Council. ' Such developments arc a step ahead of bishops" clergy and laity monologuing at each other from safe distances. This serious planning for action is far better than endless, anguished discussions of identity develop,mont usually convened in convention hotels far from the maddening crowd. Nevertheless, my organizational"sixth sense" warns me to curb any premature, ecstatic reactions at this point. The reorganization of the U. S. Catholic Church is just beginning. All the ,struggle to this point has only succeeded in disorganizing ,the former structure so that a reorganization is possible. Increasingly the oilly alternatives to the gruelling work of organizing people around real human issues would seem to be bomb-throwing, verbal or chemical, or advancing ecclesial senility. The United States Catholic Conference Task Force on Urban Problems opened its recent presentation to the priests' councils federation in Sari Diego with a 20-minute film entitled "Pastoral Agenda for,the 70's." The human issues of today, "w,here real people are and where they hurt," were all laid out in multiple screen panorama: The internal problems and the marvelous possibilities were there: war and peace; environmental destruction; unbelievable poverty side by side with man strolling on the moon; Blacks and C\1icanos seeking their share of the action; Youth: restless, idealistic, caughf up in drugs or revolution; middle class working men and women, silent but angry, beginning to ask hard questions abo,ut their own human priorities.

WASHINGTON (NC) - More blacks hold public office in the United States today than ever before, according to a report issued by the Metropolitan Applie~ Research Center here and counting 1,469 blacks in elected public offices. ' The report shows that only three-tenths of one per cent of the nation's elected positions are filled by blacks.. despite the fact that Negroes make up more than 10 per cent of the nation's population. ,The survey, the only complete list of black officeholders compiled, states that blacks hold public office in 41 of the 50 states.' In each state where Negroes have been elected to some post, the population is at least one per cent Negro. , About 38 per cent of the elect, cd officials are small town and rural Southerners; Some 62 per' cent, mostly city dwellers, hold office in northern and western states. One Senator A ,iob-by-job breakdown shows 48 Negroes serving as mayors, 575 as city officials, 362 as school board members and 168 as state legislators. Most of the nation's 114 black ,iudges live outside the South, while the 99 - black marshals, constables and sheriffs ,live in the southern states. Black representation on the national level is limited to one U.S. s'enator and nine members of the House of Representatives. None is from a southern state. The pattern of black absence from legil?latures is continued on the state level, especially in the South. Three southern states with more than two million' blacks have no black members in the state legislature: Alabama, Arkansas and 'South Carolina.. Lack of Records In northern states, imd cities, the pattern is still evident~ Only in Pittsburgh, Pa., is the percentage of blacks on the city council significantly lar:ger than

the percentage of blacks in the population. Black women, the report indicates, comprie,s 8.5 per cent of all black officials. Shirley Chisholm of New York is the only black woman ever. elected to Congress, but 13 black women presently hold positions in state legislatures. ' Research Center personnel reo sponsible for the tally point out that the lack of records makes it hard to compare current figures on black officeholders with figures for past years. But the survey concludes that more blacks are in· elected offices in 1970 than ever b~tore.

Stresses Global Dimension Of Catholic Education

Asks Nonpublic School Aid

ATLANTIC CITY (NC) - Catholic educators around the world have "all the characteristics of a truly essential apostolate," said Bishop Raymond J. Gallagher of Lafayette, Ind., chairman of the National Catholic Educational Association. Discussing the theme of the association's 67th an- future trends of Catholic educanual convention here- tions by being exposed to a wide of speakers and topics at "Catholic Education: the array the four-day convention.

Global Dimension" - the bishop described the "zest and enthusiasm of newer nations, the rich tradition of Europe, and the technical proficiency of American educators." He remarked "each of us enriches the other." He said Catholic educators should have a "sense of responsibility to improve education as a tool for developing nations. But he emphasized "this is also a check list for ourselves," since an effort must also be made to provide the best possible education for all U. S. citizens. "It's a humbling experience to tell others what to do when we have unfinished business in our own back yard," he said. Bishop Gallagher said a major purpose of this convention is "to maintain, and indeed improve, the morale of the 'troops' in Catholic education," Constant Liaison "I see no greater priority at this moment as far as·the Church is concerned," he said, "that to define very clearly the image of Catholic educators," and to define "in very realistic terms" the importance of C.atholic education "in the total teaching mission of the Church," Dishop Gallagher, association chairman since April, 1968, sees the organization as "a'. form for. .professional educators" through which ·they can contin.lIe th'eir professional devel.opment and structure their attitudes toward educational problems. He discussed the association's "partnership" with the U. S. Catholic Conference department of education which is a separate organization. "We feel that the two are supplementing one another very nicely," he said. "And there is a constant liaison between the two out. of which a single viewpoint is developing with reference to Catholic education." "The association sees a very fruitful and a very achieving future for Catholic education," the bishop said. "The whole thrust is toward tailoring the cloth of Catholic education to the pattern of the future." New DIrections ' Earlier, Father C. Albert Koob, O. Praem., association president, described some possible new directions for Catholic education to newsmen. Father Koob urged trying "something different," rather than merely duplicating public schools. In addition to the conventional type, he spoke of Catholic schools which would be "supplcJ.nentary" to public schools: He described "halfschools" which might teach only humanistic subjects such as social studies and religion, and the possibility of "sharing time" with public schools for humanistic studies. He said "a complete fusion of all Christian education" had taken place in India and it is "just possible" there will be "a federation of all nonpublic schools in the next few years" in the United States. Convention delegates have Itcpt abreast with present and

Allen cited the importance of the national Right to Read pro· gram which has as its goal that no child should. leave school "without the ability and the desire to read to the full extent of his capabilities" by the- end of the 1970s. A National Reading Center and a National Reading Council will be established toward this goal. "Your support i~ already being demonstrated in many ways," Allen told the Catholic educators. He described an Education Progress Center which will conduct a pilot Right to Read program for 550 minority children in northern . and southern California this Summer. The center will be staffed on a volunteer basis by nuns from surrounding areas with experi· ence in teaching reading to disadvantaged children.,

SPRINGFiELD (NC) - Gov. Richard B. Ogilvie recommended Illinois provide $29 million this year to assist the state's nonpublic school system, emphasizing the immediate urgency of the problem. d ••• In his message (April 1) to the Illinois General Assembly, the governor cautioned the lawmakers: "Failure to provide funds to these private and parochial schools this year may very well mean the total collapse of the private school system. Gov. Ogilvie underscored these points in his message: "Children in our nonpublic schools have a legitimate claim to assistance from the state." "Many other states already have recognized the necessity of this kind of aid." "The need is urgent." "It has been estimated that collapse of the private and parochial school system would increase the cost of education to Illinois taxpayers by $400 million a year." "Nonpublic schools offer an opportunity for' educational diversity and freedom of choice, values that are important to the entire educational system of the state." . "An investment of relatively small amount of public funds to supplement the resources of the non public schools would provide significant benefits."

Precisely the Point Bishop Remi DeRoo of Cistoria, British Colombia, has issued a report, one he has sent to the Holy Father, which contains an analysis of the ups and downs of CathoUcism in his diocese. He mentions how some people are suffering from' a .sense of anger, confusion and frustration and says, -"The real issue here is that the Church today encourages diversity in unity. There can be many valid points of view dn complex issues. In no way does this destroy unity in faith:' That is precisely the point.

I

On many issues there is and can be legitimate diversity. On other issues there must be unity. People just want to be assured of which is which. I They are not upset when it is explained to them that there are differing points of view on matters of style, techniques, customs and approaches within the Church. They accept this: . But they, are fearful that some day someone. w~ll come along and tell them there can be different· points of view on the Apostles Creed or -the Commandments. This is the heart of the matter. It would seem that whenever there is talk of change and diversity and differences, this must be prefaced by the assurance that some things cannot and do not and will not change, that there is a whole body of beliefs and morality that is stable, that is unchanging, that is the unity of fait~.

lence makes a mockery of marriage and love. The motion picture trend that publicly acclaims wife swapping and infidelity must be disclaimed. Marriage is indicated, in many modern novels, as an outdated, old-fashioned, archaic system of social relationships. These attitudes only' encourage divorce situations that are socially destructive among insecure personalities.. . . We seem to have little desire to face thissoeialp~oblem in our search' for instant· heaven.

Urges Dialogue Continued from Page One The road to reduced tensions between bishops and priests is "dialogue,. dialogue, dialogue," he said. "We all have to rid ourselves of the stereotypes we have about one another," he added. , Father Bonnike, elected at the federation's recent convention in San Diego, Calif., discussed a wide range of issues facing today's priests during an interview at NFPC headquarters here. Senate President He listed these as democracy in the Church, the holiness of priests, co-respovsibility with bishops and laity; due process machinery, optional celibacy, involvement in the world, and the generation gap within the ranks of priests. Father Bonnicke, 47, a native of Elgin, Ill., has had a lively .career since his ordination in 1952. He has served as administrator and pastor of three parishes in the Rockford diocese as a school superintendent, and is currently a member of the diocesan urban task force. He helped found the Rockford priests senate in 1967 and served as its first president. A delegaate to the original federation constitutional convention in 1968, which created the nationwide grouping of such senates, .he has been a member of the federation's executive board and steering committee. He was general chairman of the organic zation's 1969 House of Delegates meeting in New Orleans, Shared Responsibility Citing the need for open lines of communication, Father Bonnike said: "The important thing is to create forums where everybody can· be heard" and 'in true faith toJ06k for the Holy Spirit wherever people are' working for' the reign of God." He added "It is important also that bishops establish a means of direct and early response to the . decisions and resolutions of their priests councils, even if this decision is to send the resolution "ack to committee for further study. In this way priests know that their bishops listen seriously and are concerned." Father Bonnike said shared responsibility should be implemented at all lEivels of the Church.

CHICAGO (NC)-A priest proposed occasional use of movies instead of homilies and a greater variety of .music during the new liturgy of the Mass. Father John Krenzke, O.P., of the Chicago archdiocesan liturgical commission, speaking at a meeting of Catholic women at Aquinas Institute in nearby River Forest, explained' the changes. and the theology behind them, in the new order of the Mass introduced in the archdiocese on Palm Sunday. "If you can't accept someth,ing said during the Mass, don't say the Creed," the Dominican said. "Much of the confusion in the .Church today is because priests have avoided ,preaching controversy in the Gospels. After all, Jesus was controversial." Speaking at a multi-media program sponsored by the archdiocesan Council of Catholic Women, Father Krenzke said he saw no objection in using filmstrips in place of homilies on certain occasions. "There's nothing wrong with this. It's instruction," he said. He criticized the monotonous "four song approach" used at most Masses and said there are 14 possible places for songs in the Mass." He also recommended parishes use a musical variety at Sunday Masses-"a qui~t Mass, an organ Mass, a guitar Mass." He s.aid a banner with the responses in full view of the co~gregation would eliminate frantic searching through missalettes during Mass.

Urge Coed Plan At Notre Dome

By Joseph and Marilyn Roderick We were saddened this week by the announcement that beginning July 1, no outside burning will be allowed in Massachusetts, with the exception of the barbecue pit. We can understand this in terms of t.he n~ed to keep our air clean but it, saddens us to think that no longer will, fits and snowy boots); and with tongue in cheek and every finger our senses be titillated by crossed I must concede it seems the smell of burning leaves to have come through with flying in the Fall. This may seem like " silly point to be concerned about, but it is just another one of those ever-increasing restrictions which narrow the pleasures of living. Enjoyment for most of us comes in small doses; the first crocus, walks on the beach, a walk in the woods, a find of black raspberries growing wild, a clear, starlit night; things we cannot plan but which surprise us by their existence and which give us special joy. Auto Real Problem All of this because of the automobile. I read an article recently in the New York Times which reported that a West Coast ecology group had bought a 1970 automobile and buried it unused' as a symbolic gesture against the automobile manufacturers. This is the heart of the matter. Burning ieaves in one's back yard adds very little to the pollution to the atmosphere in comparison to the amount of exhaust generated by only one automobile. It is here that we should begin to move. A truly concerned government would not be making symbolic gestures but would support stern legislation to limit the number of cars 'o'n the' hlghw~ys. As with most of these things, what causes us the greate~t concern is the lives we can expect for our children. If in fact, the atmosphere is so contaminated that we can no longer burn leaves 01: trash, then we must consider that there is not much hope that the next generation will enjoy the bounties of Nature that we have so promiscuously misused. In the Kitchen If anyone had told me I would be sitting at this typewriter on April first, writing about the second largest snowstorm to hit our area within two days, I would have replied that he was definitely being pessimistic, even for a New Englander. But here I am and right outside my window are the remains of our second spring snowstorm. In one way I'm glad that our usual messy winter weather chose to return for one last fling, otherwise I would have had to wait until next winter to find out if my new vinyl kitchen floor was childproof. Today it has been tested and retested by Jason and his friends, and Melissa and hers (all resplendent in dripping snow out-

I'm hot one of those gals who concerns herself with the hidden dirt-my problem is with all that dirt that fairly shouts at everyone who walks in, "Here I am!" Sore 'Thumbs Nine years ago we bought' a kitchen floor that the dealer all but guaranteed would remain beautiful from one washing to the next and that it did providing the second w,ashing took place , no longer than -an hour after the first. 'Appearance-wise, it had a very unappealing beige and' brown color scheme that should have blended in beautifully with the mud that the kids were always dragging in, but for some unexplained reason every spot stood out like a sore thumb (and who wants a kitchen floor full of sore thumbs?). ' , However, throughout the longsuffering years that it graced my floor I could not think of any, reason for getting rid of it short of burning down the kitchen, and even I didn't hate it that much. Someone up there must listen to a housewife's prayers, though, for ,when we decided to add to the tiouse we realized' that' the kitchen floor would have to be replaced and that thorn in my side got torn up and carted off to the dump. ' Finally it looks as if my kitchen floor blues have ended; however before you conclude that my housekeeping problems are over I must mention that the very dark, dark, dark, wood floor that I had put in the new living room already shows indications of requiring daily care because every single speck of dust shows. Ah, well, you can't win them all. Here's a salad that looks as pretty as it tastes and lends just the right light touch to a heavy meal.

Catholic, Leader Blasts Abortion Statement LONDON (NC) -Norman St. John-Stevas, a Conservative member of parliament and one of this country's prominent Catholic lay leaders, called for, the dismissal of Britain's secretary for social services because of what he called' the secretary's "callousness" concerning abortion. Speaking at a meeting of teachers spol)sored by the Institute of Religious Education here, St. John-Stevas criticized Richard A. Crossman's comment in the House of Commons that "20,000 illegitimate children would be alive today-with all the consequences of that if it were not for the abortion act."

The 24-yearold musician, who will be ordained as a United Church of Christ minister lat.er this Spring, reported that most persons ignored him when he asked for their help in shifting the cross's weight. Some didn't completely ignore him. They said something sarcastic. Some became angry because he imposed on them. And some even helped but not many, he said. Schneider said he chose the telephone pole-cross to dramatize both the crucifixion of Christ and modern society's inability to communicate. He said contemporary Americans "are terribly afraid of being honest, of talking to each other." His way of the cross was followed by a small group of friends, members of his Center for Con-· temporary Celebration. Thy filmed his e'ncounters with Michigan Avenue pedestrians for use in the group's religious celebrations. Members of,the center include a nun, a priest and two Catholic seminarians.

NOTRE DAME (NC) - The University of Notre Dame curriculum revision committee has recommended a coeducation experiment as part of its II-point program for increased flexibility in the school's curriculum. The program, approved by the university's academic council after two years of preparation, involved students deeply in the proposals for change. The pattern which runs through the committee's study is evident in what is probably the most farreaching of the group's recommendations: the proposal for a residential, coeducational Notre Dame-Saint Mary's College experimental program. Committee members received three separate proposals for ail experimental college during its deliberations, It recommended the appointment of a coordinator and an advisory board to plan "a residential, coeducational, crosscollege program in the sophomore year to experiment broadly in innovative academic methodology and to test new educational departures." The earliest possible date mentioned for implementation was the Fall' of 1971. 'In other instance,> of increased cooperation with Saint Mary's, the committee adopted a common schedule and grading system as well as' a new, joint academic .calendar which omits the "lame duck" session between the end of Christmas vacation and the end of the first semester'. The two-year, study and its recommendations both reflect growing 'student 'control at the university. Many of the. changes stem ,directly from student requests, while others widen student involvement in planning his own and ,the university's educational goals.

Crossman's statement, the Catholic leader charged, would have a harmful effect on millions of citizens of illegitimate birth whom the social services secretary was supposed to be helping.

CHRIST NEEDS YOU!

"The problems of illegitimacy shoul9 be met. by social and legal reforms and not by an attempted shortcut by way of abortion," St. John-Stevas said.

Maryland House Kills Bill to Aid Private Schools ANNAPOLIS

THE ANCHORThurs., Apri~ 9, 1970

Harris Asks War Against Bias

( NC )

Maryland's House of Delegates voted down a bill to provide state aid to nonpublic schools amid warnings from the bill's supporters that defeat would mean closing schools performing 'a vital public function. Baltimore's Cardinal Lawrence Shehan commented: "It is with a great deal of regret that I learn that the General Assembly has indicated that it does not intend to provide state financial assistance to non-public schools at this time. "Nevertheless, the need for assistance continues to grow. The financial burden upon the parents and the school is ever-increasing. "I wish to express my gratitude," tardinal Shehan continued, "to those who so effectively brought to the attention of the public and General Assembly the facts surrounding the necessity for prompt and substantial assisttance to the non-public schools. They have performed a genuine public service, the significance of which will undoubtedly be felt in future legislative deliberations." No Bitterness , The Baltimore cardinal added that "those legislators who have indicated an understanding of the real issues and ,a sympathy for the plight of non-public education also have my thanks." Cardinal Shehan promised that "despite the lack of favorable action, the archdiocese of Baltimore and the parishes which comprise it will do everything in their power to maintain the schools operated under their auspices; However, the financial crF sis continues to grow and a solution providing a substantial new source of revenue must be promptly found. "It is my hope," Cardinal Shehan concluded "that there will be no expression of bitterness or rancor directed toward anyone involved in the recent legislative decision, and I look forward to the mature consideration and good will of aU parties affected by this very grave problem of the financial crisis in non-public education. Closings-Tuition Raises Shortly after the bill was defeated, the superintendent of Catholic schools in the archdiocese of Baltimore announced two school closings and across-the-' board tuition raises, in M!lryland's Catholic grammar schools and high schools. Msgr. William C. Newman said that the tuition range in Catholic grammar schools would go from the current rate of $25 to $150 per year to $50 to $200 per year. He added that high school students would be paying a tuition of "approximately $500." Supporters _ of the bill were drawn from those who favored aid to private schools in general as well as from those who see private schools as part of the solution to the educational crisis facing the city of Baltimore. With the bill's failure this year, "it will be 1973' by the time the money is available, and by, ,then some ,of these citly schools will be long gone," protested state delegate Paul Weisengoff, a Baltimore Democrat.

Farm Workers, Growers Sign Contract " Bishops Had Significant Rol'e in Settlement

LOS ANGELES (NC)-Agreement between striking farm workers and three Coachella Valley table grape growers was announced at a press conference held here under the auspices of Archbishop Timothy Manning of Los Angeles. -Involved in the unprecedented settlement are the United Farm Workers Organizing Committee, AFL-CIO, led by Cesar Chavez, the David Freedman Co. of Thermal and Indio; the Wonder Palms Ranch, partially owned by Freedman Co., and the Travertine Ranch owned by Charles Freedman in Oasis. The gr:owers involved produce one-eighth of the Coachella table grape crop and about one per cent of the total California crop. The agreement is the nation's first labor contract covering table grape pickers. The two sides were brought together through the mediation efforts of a committee of bishops, established by the National Conference of Catholic Bishops at their annual meeting last November. . It was delegated to study the table grape dispute in the San Joaquin and Coachella valleys of California and to make recommendations as to possiblesolutions. ' Bishop Medeiros Member' Archbishop Manning is a committee member and declared that he "welcomed the three growers who have so laudably brought to a conclusion the contract, and we equally welcome Mr. Cesar

Holy See Confirms Election of Abbot

WASHINGTON (NC) - The Holy See has confirmed the election of Father Edmund F. McCaffrey, O.S.B., as abbot of Belmont Abbey in North Carolina. The confirmation was announced here by Archbishop Luigi Raimondi,' apostolic delegate in the United States. Abbot McCaffrey was elected to succeed Abbot Water A. Coggin, O.S.B., who resigned Feb. 10.

Chavez and his representatives from the United Farm Workers Organizing Committee." "It is our ardent hope," Archbishop Manning said, "that this day's business will be but the beginning of a chain of such contracts so that prosperity and peace can once more descend into our fields' and homes. The Church is happy to have been a servant to the parties involved in these conflicts, to have been the bridge across which a meeting could take place." Other members of the committee are Bishops Hugh A. Donohoe of Fresno, W,alter J. Curtis of Bridgeport, Humberto S. Medeiros of Brownsville and Auxiliary Bishop Joseph F.' Donnelly of Hartford, who is chairman. Vexing Problem Bishop Donnelly said ~hat the, bishops of the United States have been "acutely sensitive" to the national problem of the,farm labor dispute.

Canadians Combine For Social Action OTTAWA (NC) - Representatives of more than 30 Canadian organizations involved in social action programs have banded together in a working partnership aimed at speeding up social development here and abroa,d. The new Canadian Coalition for Development immediately approved action strategies designed to push tax reforms for low-income Canadians, to give support to Canada's minority groups, and to promote world development. A 13-member provision executive committee has been established to coord,inate the group's activities. The, coalition is described in its statement of intentions as "an experiment in Canadian pluralism." Instead of operating as a super-agency, it will function as a working partnership of organizations "which meet on the common ground of shared human values" to carry out specific 'actions together. By pool'ing their resources in voluntary efforts, coalition partners inte'nd to supplement the efforts of government agencies. As a third force between individual citizens and governments, the coalition "will strive to become' a new lever for the elimination of poverty" and for a better quality of life. ' .

"Time and time again," he said, "We have officially addressed ourselves to solutions to this vexing problem. Again there were many requests for formal support on the part of the bishops for the grape boycott. After extended' discussions ,it was decided that it would be much more constructive if the bishops could bring together the growers and the farm workers to negotiate their differences." Questioned at the conference, Lionel Steinberg, president of the David Freedman Co., said that "the bishops' committee had a significant role 'in out' efforts to reach agreement with the union. I doubt we could have arrived at an equitable solution without their counsel and encouragement."

Slovakia Restricts Nuns' Activities BONN (NC)-Nuns in the Slovakia region of Czechoslovakia have been ordered to cease all activities in parishes, it was reported here. 'The Slovakian board for Public Worship at Bratislava also informed the nuns' superiors that the nuns will have to stop religious instructions in schools by the end of the current school year in June. The nuns' activities will be restricted to caring for aged priests and nuns, nursing the mentally ill and taking care' of children with physical and mental defects. Nuns doing normal nursin'g work in certain public hospitals, however, have not yet been ordered to halt such activities because there are no replacements available.

CHICAGO (NC)-The Catholic Church has been' urged to make "an all-out war against racism and ignorance" as one of its primary social goals to be accepted by clergy and laity. James T. Harris, executive director of the National Catholic Conference for Interracial Justice, issued his plea here at a conference on the white man in the black community. The session was sponsored by the Catholic Clergy Conference on the Interracial Apostolate. Harris said the war on racism an<~ ignorance must be won, "because members of society's most disadvantaged minority see as major obstacles to their progress individuals and groups within the Catholic Church." Restll'ucture Projects He cited the "raCist" influence of Catholics in police departments, political parties and public and private education establishments in neighborhoods where blacks and other minorit~es are seeking to live:. "The fact that the neighborhoods are not readily open' to minority citizens is evidence that the Catholic Church harbors the most benighted, bigoted and spiritually decadent members of our society," he opined. Harris, however, said these socia:! barriers can be overcome if the Church restructures its educational system and finances economic development projects for disadvantaged minorities. Such action, he added, would enable significant and measurable improvements in the nation's metropolitan areas, especially in the inner-city.

Get the Information From Experience NKONGSAMBA (NC)-Priests who want to do away with celibacy should listen to multi-wived Africans, according to Bishop Albert Ndongmo of Nkongsamba, Cameroun. "It is precisely our African polygamists who advise us, Catholic priests, to remain celibate. They know what they're talking about," he said.

Asserts Oberammergau Passion Play Fundamentally. Hostile to Jews NEW YORK (NC)-Philip E. Hoffman, pre!?ident of the American Jewish Committee, charged here that the Oberammergau Passion Play "remains fundamentally hostile to Jews and Judaism" despite recent revisions. At the same time, spokesman for two major American Jewish groups urged Cardinal Julius Doepfner, of Munich, Germany, not to attend or associate himself with the Oberammergau play because of its anti-Semitic elements. Dore Schary, playwright and national chairman of the Anti· Defamation League of B'Nai B'Rith, joined Rabbi Arthur J. Lelyveld, president of the American Jewish Congress, in a plea asking the cardinal to ignore the pageant. The two told Cardinal Doepfner that his presence at the play could be "miscontrued as endorsement by the Church." Hoffman said his statement was based on a reading' of a new textual analysis of the 1960 and 1970 scripts of the centuries-old play. , The results of the textual study were communicated: to West German church and government authorities by the American Jewish Committee, which plans to publish the analysis shortly in German, French" Spanish, and English. Council Policy While many anti-Jewish words and passages have been removed In revising the pageant for this year's performances, other objectionable material has been left In, the st';'dY concluded. Moreover, the study said that the entire story line and the underlying conceptions of the play, unchanged in the new version, violate the policy adopted in 1965 at the Second Vatican Council in its Declaration on Non-Christian Religions. "That Vatcian action," Hoffman recalled, "adopted as it was by the overwhelming majority of the council Fathers, repudiated any form of Christian teaching that would perpetuate the myth of coIlective Jewish guilt for the death of Jesus, and any corollary teachings that would directly or indirectly nurture hatred or prejudice against the Jewish people 01' Judaism." 'Anti-Jewish Bias' Both during and after Vatican II, American Jewish Committee representatives discussed the issue of anti-Jewish references, in the Oberammergau Passion Play text with a number of church and government officials. All of them. Hoffman stated, indicated a desire to purge the play.. of its anti-Jewish references. Hoffman added that the 1970

Senators to Study State Abortion Law BOSTON '(NC) - The Massachusetts Senate approved a proposal to establish a special commission to study the state's abortion law. The Senate action followed the House's rejection of six measures to alter or abolish the Massachusetts law on abortion and birth control. A vote on a seventh bill to revise the birth control statute was postponed. A resolution introduced by Sen. Beryl W. Cohen of Brookline urged a two-month' commission study. of the abortion' issue. It would delay the Senate's final disposition of the bills aimed at amending the existing laws.

text did not bear out the claim, made recently by Oberammergau officials, that the new text merely foIl owed the Gospel reports of the Passion. On the contrary, the AJC study continued, the script still abounds with distortions of Scriptural passages and with non-Scriptural elements: The American Jewish Committee's study concluded that the Oberammergau pageant remains "pervaded by an anti-Jewish bias which not only distorts the facts of Jesus' history but also obscures those passages of the New Testament that offer a basis for balanced and positive images of Jews and Judaism." The content analysis was conducted by the Interre.ligious Affairs Department of the American Jewish Committee, directed by Rabbi Marc H. Tanenbaum. The passion play has been performed in Oberammergau, .a Bavarian town about 40 miles from Munich, since 1634. Severe criticism of anti-Semitic elements in the pageant has been leveled by Jewish groups and others in the past decade.

Bishop to Ordain Three Saturday Most Rev. Bishop James L. ConnoIly will ordain to the priesthood three deacons of the Congregation of Holy Cross at 10 o'clock Saturday morning, April II, in the chapel of the Holy Cross Fathers Seminary, North Easton.

They are now completing their religious and pastoral program at Moreau Seminary, Notre Dame, Ind. In June, the new priests will be assigned to apostolates entrusted to the Holy Cross Fathers.

Questions Over.Population WASHINGTON (NC)-A member of President Nixon's Council of Economic Advisers told an audience at American University here that he saw "little reason to expect overpopulation" around the world. Although admitting that some of the world's poor nations might be overpopulated at the present time,Henrick S. Houthakker said there was "no evidence" that overpopulation was a general threat. Speaking on problems of economic development, Houthakker called population control as a developmeint aid "a simpleminded idea." "As far as I am aware," he

added, "it has not been demonstrated that there exists any close, casual relation between the growth of per capita national product and the growth of pop'ulation, and there is no obvious reason why there should be." "There is little reason to expect overpopulation for the world as a whole in the foreseeable future," Houthakker continued. "What is, of course, more serious is 'that overpopulation may lead to a degradation 'of the social and physical environment." But even this, he explained, is a problem of the distribution of population, rather than the quantity of·people.

QUITO (NC) - Ecuador's National Priests' Council has recommended that bishop~,deal directly with the Vatican instead of papal diplomats in their countries. The council also urged further study of the celibacy issue and proposed an action program to aid the Ecuadorian priests in their ministry and living conditions. The meeting was attended by 110 of the 1,600 priests serving in Ecuador and by three members of the Ecuadorian Bishops' Conference: Bishop Leonidas 'Proa~o of Riobamba, Bishop Vicente Cisneros of Ambato and Auxiliary Bishop Antonio Gonzalez of Quito. Resolutions' passed by the priests' council urged: Bishops' conferences to establish a Vatican relations department to deal with the Holy See and the abolition of papal nunciatures. More freedom for priests in their efforts for social justice and reform and in dealing with political issues. Priests to become "incarnated" with the poor in order to accomplish the liberation of man. Further studies on optional celibacy for priests and on or· daining qualified married men for the priesthood, and allowing priests who have married to return to pastoral work.

The meeting was not "a conference of world 'relgiious" nor of "official represenfatives" but a gathering of scholars who have specialized in dialogue to consider "present discussions and future possibilitie's,"said .Dr. Stanley J.

Rhodesia Bishops . Defy Government' Race Policies SALISBURY (NC)-Rhodesia's five Catholic bishops have announced defiance' of government efforts to force Church support for the government's racial segregation measures. In a blunt three-page pastoral letter distributed throughout the nation, the bishops outlined "dangers to the Church and her mission" stemming from Rhodesia's constitLition. "What has happened is this," the bishops explained. "New legislation is bringing to a close the honorable and fruitful tradition of understanding and cooperation which has hitherto existea between Church and state in Rhodesia. Henceforth; the Church shall merely be tolerated'" ...... "The liberty of the Church to move freely among the people has been set aside in principle, and the missionary who is sent to teach all nations may hence; forth exercise his apostolic function on sufferance only, where .and when and for as long as he is issued by the state with a permit to do so." Church Future at Stake Pointing out that new racial policies draw a sharp line between the area set aside for the country's whites and that reserved for, blacks, the pastoral letter continued: "It may well be that we shall also be denied, in violation of our conscience, the right to educate in our schools whomsoever we will. We may even be forced by regulation to refuse hospital beds to anyone not of the race approved in that area. "Priests and nuns and teaching Brothers may have to be segregated in their communities according to their racial origins. The whole future of the Church in Rhodesia is thus at stake. , The.bishops urged Catholics of Rhodesia to' speak out against the government's policies. Commenting that, like the Apostles, they "must obey God rather than man," the five prelat~s -added: ,. Restdcts ,Mission "Discriminatory laws have now been enacted which are contrary to Christian faith. This we cannot accept * * . . our Divine Lord, in becoming man, bound the whole human race to Himself ......... and chose so to identify Himself with men that He takes as done to Himself, in hurt or in love, whatever we' do to' our fellow-men." The five bishops emphasized that they are in no sensemeddling in politics. Rath!,!r, they explained, the government precipitated the crisis by interfering with the exercise of Christianity. The pastoral pointed out that "our mission of service to all se«tions of the cOlllmuriity * (0 * has ,been grievously restricted:" It concluded with a challenge: "We cannot in c6nscience and will not in practice accept any limitation of our freedom to deal with all people, irrespective of race, as members of the one human family, as our brothers in Christ."

. Athletic: Relations With Brigham ,Young

PROVO (NC) - Officials of Mormon-operated Brigham Young University here in Utah, fac~d with being cut off from other schools because Mormons ex~ clude blacks from the prieshood, have taken full-page newspaper ads predicting that blacks will some day be admitted to tije priesthood. The ads appeared in Washington and Oregon papers, where student bodies at several schools have protested athletic competition with Brigham Young teams because 'of the black exclusion' policy. The students bave 'de-

manded that the schools sever relations with' the Mormonowned institution. Signed by ~righam Young president Ernest L. Wilkinson, the ads admit that "there is a religious 'belief, confirmed by each prophet of the church that blacks of African lineage may not, at the present time, hold the priesthood." But, Wilkinson added, "the time will come when they will be given the right to hold the priesthood." Wilkinson 'emphasized that Mormons "are reminded by the

very core of our beliefs that all men are brothers, that those who do not hold the priesthood,women, young children, blacks, non-members-'-are as precious in the sight of God as those who do." Protest over athletic relations with the Mormon school have taken place at Colorado State and the universities of New Mexico and Wyoming, as well as at the Washington and Oregon schools. California's Stanford Qniversity has already announced it will no longer compete in ath.letic events with Brigham Young.

But one government agency here pulled a switch and told another government agency not to. Things had been looking cheerless for some time. At least a dozen crises, at home and abroad, seemed to get worse instead of better. The income tax deadline was approaching swiftly, and the Spring weather was disappointing. The capital city could stand a chuckle, and it got it. The National Park Service told the Smithsonian Institution to stop flying kites on the Mall. The Smithsonian Institution is a religious complex which embraces the National Gallery of Art, the National Museum of Natural History, the National Zoological Park, an astrophysical observatory, the National Portrait Gallery and the John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Arts, to name only some of its interests. The "establishment," as it is called. which' heads it, includes the President of the United States, the Vice President and members of the presidential cabinet. Violates Lsw Smithsonian buildings pretty well dominate the Mall, the broad greensward between the Capitol building and the Washington Monument. It has tried for some time to get more people to visit the area by staging carnivals, concerts, exhibits, plays and various other entertainments. Now it has been told that it must discontinue a Kite Carnival it has sta~ed the last three Springs. A law enacted in 1892 says 'it is iIIe~al to fly a kite anywhere in the City of Washington. It all seemed like so much froth. Not many people knew about the law, and kites have been flown in various parts .of the city every year for as long as anyone could remember. No one rose up to explain why the law was enacted in the first place - perhaps kites frightened horses-but there were many to say it was outdated and should be repealed. An attempt at repeal was to be made in an omnibus crime bill before Congress. Not So Frivolous Actually, the action' of the National Park Service may not have

Backs Fund Drive For Cathedral MONROVIA (NC) - 'President William V.S. Tubman of Liberia, n Methodist. is spearheading a drive for $75,000 to help construct the new Catholic cathedral here. In a radio. appeal the president asked the whole country to support the fund drive for the new $200,000 b':lilding. In his appeal Tubman said that the Catholi~ community in Liberia "has' ,rendered great and invaluable services. to the nation and its people in evangelism, health and the training of Liberian citizens in many aspects and avenues of life, thereby enabling them to perform ·their civic and other obligations to the country." . Tubman said his administration has encouraged all denomi· nations in the contruction of religious and educational buildings" and that churches have received funds for this purpose, "with the' exception of the Roman Catholic Church."

been as frivolous as some critics claim. Many of the political demonstrations and other rallies held here take place in the Mall area and in Lafayette Park across Pennsylvania Avenue from the White House, thus falling in the jurisdiction of the park service. Recently the park service prepared a questionnaire which would have required persons planning demonstrations in federal park \lreas to supply certain information about themselves, their organizations, the purpose of the rallies, the number expected to take part, whether they were. expected to be peaceful or turbulent, and so on. Just days after the park service told the Smithsonian Institution to stop flying kites on the Mall, a U. S. District Court judge here struck out 15 of 33 questions the park service planned to put to prospective demonstrators. To have an anti-kite·flying law on the books, and not enforced, might have complicated the en· forcement of regulations which the park service hopes to apply to future political demonstrations in Washington.

Announce World Youth Council TAIZE (NC) - An ecumenical council of young people from all over the world is being organized by· Prior Roger Schutz of the Protestant monastery of Taize here in France. Prior Schutz announced the council to 2,500 youths who came here from 35 countries for the Easter weekend. "In order to seek to live Christian realities in the present tmmoil, to bring ourselves together,' to reconcile opposition, we need an instrument, a means, ,and I announce it to you now: we are going to hold a council of young people," he said.. The idea of the council originated with a small international team directed by Margarita Moyano, former president of the World Federation of Catholic Youth and now secretary of that organization .for Latin America. International meetings of young people have been held at Taize for the past several years. Taize is an interdenominational and ecumenical Protestantmonastic community. It was founded by Prior Schutz in 1940.

'Dirty Word'

Civil Rights Commission Issues New Pamphlet on Racism

WASHINGT.ON (NC~"Racism is a dirty word in America-and a hotly controversial one." These are the opening words of a new pamphlet published here by the United States Commission on Civil Rights, chaired by Notre Dame University president Father Theodore Hesburgh, c.s.c. The illustrated pamphlet wraps an essay written to show the effects of racism. The pamphlet was written by Dr. Anthony Downs, senior vicepresident of the board of directors of the Real Estate Research Corporation and a consultant to the National Advisory Commis-. sion on Civil Disorders. Downs' essay pointed out that "million of Mexican Americans, Puerto Ricans, Negroes, Indians and other minority groups in our society suffer from severe depri. vation and injustice." . - White Racism The reason for this, Downs charged, is what white' Americans have never fully understood, but what the Negro can never forget: that ·white. society is deeply implicated in' the ghetto. "White institutions created it," he continued, "white institutions maintain it, and white society condones it. "Race prejudice' has shaped our history decisively in the past; it now threatens, to do so again. White racism is essentially responsibl.e for the explosive mixture which has been accumulating in our cities since the end of World War II." The failure of the report of the National Advisory Commission on Civil Disorders (Kerner report) to define its charges of racism led many people to reject the' whole report; according to Downs. To correct .that situation, Downs outlined an operational definition of racism. In his view "racism is any attitude, action or institutional structure which subordinates a person or. group because of his or their color." Heavy Residue This subordination, Downs claimed, is the core of the 'race problem ,in the United States. He

sail1 it manifests itself in two ways: through overt racism, the blatant use of color as a tool' of suppression, and through institutional subordination. The author noted the second is a suppression of minority groups because of conditions and beliefs growing out of overt racism. Downs said that more than 300 years of overt racism-of barring blacks, Indians and other minorities from their rights solely because of color-has left a heavy residue of institutional subordination in the U. S. He noted that while overt racism has been dying, its place has been taken by the more subtle and often more effective institutional subordination.

Literary Magazine Is Btack Oriented NEW YORK (NC) - A -new magazine printed in paperback format and billed by the publisher as the nation's "first black-oriented literary magazine in book format" has made its -app~arance at bookstores. Amistad I, a collection of fiction and. non-fiction s~lections by and about Negroes, will appear biannually in 1970, but Random House, the publishers, expects it to become a quarterly next year. . Taking its name from a slave ship commandeered by its black cargo, Amistad "deals in relevance,'" according to its' editors. "We know" the book's introduction says,' "that' the truth of Western civilization lies in precisely what has been omitted in its teachings. We propose to answer the questions that so many of the young are asking."

CLEVELAND (NC) - Thirtytwo seminarians and eight Benedictine Brothers have been authorized to help distribute Holy Communion. The seminarians, all in minor orders or the subdiaconate, were deputized during a Mass concelebrated by faculty members at St. Mary's Seminary, the Cleveland diocese's school of theology. The Brothers were deputized at a later ceremony in St. Andrew's Benedictine abbey here. Bishop' Issenmann also authorized Abbot Jerome Koval, O.S.B., of s.t. Andrew's to deputize Benedictine Brothers to assist in distribution of the Eucharist whenever necessary. Use of clerics, Religious and lay people to distribute Communion is authorized when ill health, advanced age or the large number of, communicants prevent a priest from distributing the sacrament.

Lawyers Reject New Code Continued from Page One sub-commission of canon lawyers serving iJ:) a consultative capacity to the all-Cardinal Pontifical Commission for the Revision of the Code of Canon Law, which meets next October. It carries the date of Sept. 20, 1969 in its current version. Those who are "doing the work" of changing the Code are trying to roll back to a preVatican II understanding and approach and bring the whole forward progress of ,the Church to a stop," the canon law society official commented. He continued to say that the proposed changes were dominated by an authoritarian approach. The document quotes from Vatican 11 to bolster' the specifics of papal power endorsed by Vatican 1. It presupposes no basic change in Church structure. Scholars Attack Other opinions expressed at the three-day "Symposium on

Co-Responsibility in the Church" concerning the document were: It will precipitate a crisis of major proportions in the Church. Many persons will be frustrated and the hopes of the Council would ultimately be destroyed. Vague on the rights of individual churchmen and co-responsibility. Confusion of dogma and law, a dogmatization of the law and a legalizing of dogma. Looks so pious when you read it all, but it only becomes exact when it speaks on, the rights of , the Pope. Basically reaffirms the mori-, archy as the fundamental governing \1ltructure of the Church. A real blow to the ecumenical movement. This type of reaffirmation of a triumpha,1ist position would make more intense what is already some disillusionment among Protestants about Vatican II hopes.

B'Nai B'rith Publishes Texts For Parochial School Use NEW YORK' (NC) - Publication of instructional material on Jews and Judaism prepared especially for parochial schools W~s announced here by the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith. Entitled "Image of the Jews: Tcachers' Guide to Jews and their Religion," its ~urpose is "to help the individual teacher by providing n basic fund of information and by offiering a systcmatic approach to the study of the Jewish religion." ' The publication, prepared for the league by Ruth Seldin, an editor and teacher, 'with the assistance of Brother Joseph Ir-. win, F.S.C., of the Department of Reli~ion. Cardinal Spellman High School, Bronx, N.Y., is divided into two parts. The first is a series of six written lectures on various aspects of Jewish life by prominent Jewish scholars, and a teachers' guide. The latter contains four basic sections: The American Jew, What Jews Believe, Jew'ish Worship and the Jewish Year nnd The Life of the Jew. Each section presents the teacher with specific aims and objectives, a brief "overview," suggested classroom activities and discussion topics and a bibliography. Close Cooperation Brother Irwin, in a foreword to the guide, calls it a challenge to "the coming of age on the part of Catholic teachers" and says that one of the advantages of the ecumenical age is that "Cath-

Dayton to Discipline Student Protesters DAYTON (NC)-The University of Dayton has dropped prosecution plans against a , group of students who staged a 23-hour sit-in at the administration building. Father Raymond A. Roesch, S.M., university president, agrees with a recommendation of County Prosecutor Lee C. Falke who said there is insufficient evidence to sustain a prosecution. The insufficiency stems from the failure of witnesses to testify against demonstrators. Father Roesch said students who "formally" violated ,university regulations during the disturbance will be disciplined. It is estimated that some 150 took part in the overnight sit-in, during which some offiCe files disappeared, long distance telephone calls were made, furniture and other equipment ~a.maged.

olic people in general can now m~asure their mature security in Catholic belief by recognizing more fully the vaule of persons of other religions." The manual is an outgrowth of a two-part closed-circuit tele路 vision series on Jews and Judaism, produced 'by the New York archdiocese and the Anti-Defamation l.:eague, and designed as an inservice course for teachers in Catholic parochial schools and Confraternity of Christian Doctrine programs. . Resulting from the increasingIv close cooperation between Catholics and Jews, the series included five programs on "The Image of the Jews in Literature" and seven, programs on "Jews and their. Religion." The programs transferred to film, are currently being used in nearly 40 dioceses.

Priest L~ads Social Refor,m Movement BOGOTA (NC)-A leader of a priests' social reform movement in Colombia has denied reports that 'he will join any guerrilla band.

After being laicized, Torres joined a guerrilla band in 1965 and was killed dur~ ing an army ambush a few months later. Father Lain, a Spaniard, expelled by the Colombian government a year ago as a subversive, has reportedly slipped back into the country and joined a guerrilla group. Father Garcia, a leader of the Golconda social reform 'movement, had been in France seeking funds to launch a magazine for the movement devoted to the "theology of liberation." On ,his return he said that he is now more than ever committed to the struggle of his fellow priests in the Golconda movement. HO~,ORING

Unique Ministry Five Religious Denominations Conduct Project at Shopping Center LAKE GROVE (NC)-Bringing Christ into the marketplace has true ecumenical meaning at a shopping center here, with five major religious denominations working together .in what is called Smith Haven Ministries, Inc. The interfaith operation at the big Smith Mall in the center 'of Suffolk County on Long Island has no church or chapel." Its main concern is social renewal in the suburban-ruraL area it serves. The idea began among Long Island Presbyterians three years ago but now includes the Roman Catholic diocese of Rockvifle Centre, the Episcopalian diocese of Long Island, the Lutheran Church in America, and the Eastern New York Methodists. While the extensive covered 'shopping center was being built, the Presbyterians had thought about a potential congregation ,and made plans to locate in the area-then decided to get into the mall itself. The Rev. A. David Bos started the Nesconset Experimental Ministry which became Smith Haven Ministries as other groups joined the Presbyterians. A Catholic priest, Father T. Peter Ryan, was recently reassigned from his parish to work full time as associate director of thc ministries. He had served in a consulting capacity to the Rev. Mr. Bos in developing his idea of a small ministry. ' The Rev. Mr: Bos explained:

"The most important facts for understanding our ministry are that: "We understand ourselves to be an extension of the ministries of lotal congregations, pa~ishes, and synagogues. "We understand ourselves to be ecumenical (we are now incorporated and the ultimate responsibility for the ministry rests with a board of governors which consists of representatives from the five denominational groups which give us major support.) Social Renewal "We understand ourselves primarily as a ministry of social renewal involving social action, community action and community services." Father Ryan listed some specific projects that Ministries is concerned with: community information and referral, group housing, work with low-income black and white families to help them adjust to re,sponsibility as home-owners for the first time, and finding adequate housing for those in substandard housing. "The ministry is in touch and working closely with three neighborhood opportunity, (anti-poverty), centers in Gordon Heights, Central Islip and Brentwood," Father Ryan continued. "We also have a close working relationship with the departments of the student union at Stony Brook and Suffolk County Community Colle~es:' he added.

NARRAGANSETT (NC)-Drother Gabriel Moran, F.S.C., was elected provincial superior of the Christian Brothers' Long Island路 New England province, which has headquarters here in Rhode Island. , I He succeeds Brother Joseph Finnegan, who held the office nine years. The province conducts high schools in 路the Boston archdiocese and the Brooklyn, Rockville Centre, Providence, Norwich and Manchester dioceses.

no actual game experience under their belts. Consequently, the schools with the most experienced performers are being touted as the "teams to beaL" Franklin and Canton which have an abundance of talented returnees, are expected to provide the major opposition for the rest of the loop. Either is capable of running away from the rest of the pack, but it is the contention of most Hockomock followers that the race will be extremely close with at least five clubs capable of besting Franklin and Canton. Among the five challengers are

In Mansfield, Coach Jack Dunn will rest title hopes on good defense and timely hitting. The Green Hornets will go with Jim McCauley on the mound today against North Attleboro in the league opener. McCauley is a big fastball pitcher who likes to mix up his offerings. Beyond McCauley, Coach Dunn has an untried mound staff. Aspirants include Les Epstein, the club's starting shortstop; Jackie Auld who is also battling for the first baSe job; Al Salachi and Jim Woodlock. Salachi may be used at first when he is not toiling on the mound.

Three Area Clubs in Thick of Race Senior co-captain Bill Shaw is slated for the cent.er field post with junior Gary Eagan working to his right. The third outfield position probably will not be settled fOf a few weeks. Coach Dunn plans to use John Kelley, Charlie Zaffini and Ben Haskell on an alternating basis until one of the trio establishes superiority. Lou Certuse is the club's starting third baseman but, because of an injury, may have to be moved to second. Veteran Antone Florencio will once again handle the catching chores. The senior co-captain is a hard working youngster who will be called upon to lead the team defensively. Coach Dunn has to be optimistic about his club's chances in the title race, but his optimism is somewhat guarded because of the Hornets' limited pitching staff. If the pitching comes through, the big Green will definitely be in contention, all the way. Over in North Attleboro, the situation is reversed. Coach Bob Guthrie has a trio of pitchers who can put 'North at the top of the pile, come June.

Ace of the staff is senior Rollie Provost who finished last year with a 5-3 record. Considering that the Red- Rocketeers had an over-all 8-8 loop record, PrQvost has to be considered one of the premier hurlers in the league. Two victories last season came on no-hitters. Junior Jim Connelly and sophomore Don Anderson,' both of whom saw varsity action a year ago, are ready to prove they too can win in the tough Hockomock. Co-captains Darryl Northup and Bob Cambridge will patrol left and center field for' the Rocketeers with either Bob Ward or Ernie Soullier in right field. Cambridge is also a possibility at first. If Cambridge plays the out~ field, then Chet - Bodinski will be used at first. Doug DiNardo and Mike Kapitan, in all probability, will be at second and third in today's opener. Coach Guthrie has been trying Paul Tetreault , Jim Shaw and Bruce McLean at shortstop. It appears as though Tetreault has the edge but he will have to work hard to hold the post. I

Down-to-the-Wire Finish Forecast The all-important catching position will be handled by freshman Jim Bodinski. The youngster, who has been ~very impressive in pre-season work-outs, appears to have all the necessary tools of a fine catcher. Last season Xapitan did the catching but with Bodinski entrenched behind the plate, Coach Guthrie has been able to move the versatile senior to third, bolstering the infield defensively. If North has a weakness this Spring it probably is its offensive attack. Paul Tetreault is the only returnee who hit better than .300 last year. North will have to get better hitting if it expects to finish at the top of the Hockomock standings; Last Spring's second place fin-

isher, Oliver Ames: will be out to improve a 9-7 record and hopefully overtake defending champion Franklin. The Tigers have five retu~ning veterans around whom Coach Bob Wooster will build his aggregation. Senior John Coe will start his third season behind the plate to receive the slants of ace pitcher John Miller. The co-captain hurler, who compiled a 5-1 league record last year, is looked to for an even stronger compaign. Miller, a southpaw, will share the mound with lefty Peter Rockwell and Bill Clay. The latter will play first base when not pitching. Rich Bodio will start at second replacing his older brother, Bill, who gradu-

Career' in Accounting Holy 'FQ,mily Grad's Goal By' Luke Sims

-Tom Healy is an articulate young man who has a fascination for figures. His six sisters have nothing to do with his obsession. Tom is a "number nut" who would rather curl up with a good math problem than a bestselling novel. To satisfy his "thirst for the digits", Healy entered Bentley College last September to pursue a career in accounting. Upon his graduation three years from now, the New Bedford native hopes "to enter the accounting field and eventually work for a major corporation." Between math problems, Tom managed to find enough time to help spark the Falcon freshmen basketball team to fine 10-4 record. The 5-11 first year man poured in the points at a rate of seven per game and was considered one of the team's leading ball handlers and playmakers. Tom was a member of championship Holy Family basketball squads throughout his high school athletic career and further proved his athletic prowess as a standout performer on the Blue Wave's young soccer team during his senior year. Aspires to Varsity The New Bedford teenager is eagerly looking forward to next season when he hopes to gain a berth on Coach Al Shield's varsity. Unlike his high school days when she was a two-sport standout, Healy has limited his athletic activity to one sport incollege. He hopes to make the most of it. Healy, is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas F. Healy, 95 Chestnut Street, and is the only son in a family of seven. The Healys are communicants of St. Lawrence Parish. Older sister Ann Marie is a housewife, Mary Jane and Dorothy are out of school, twins Martha and Marsha are students ated last June. On the left side of the infield, Coach Wooster plans to use veteran Dale Guglia at short and Jim Becker at the hot corner. In the outfield, the Tigers will go with Rockwell in left, -cocaptain Brad Norman in center and Paul Calerses in right. Norman is rated as one of' the league's top prospects both offensively and defensively. It will be the stickwork of Norman and the pitching of Miller that could propel Oliver Ames into first place by the end of the campaign. According to Coach Wooster, the league race could duplicate last year's battle when Franklin won the title with a 12-4 record, Oliver Ames and Canton tied for second with 9-7 marks and four clubs finished with 8-8 records. The Hockomock race will defi, nitely be a wide open affair.
