Faith Crisis Papal Topic VATICAN CITY (NC) Pope Paul VI has said that , the general decline in voca· tions is the most urgent problem troubling the Church, but he rejected the abolition of celibacy as a solution. In his message for the World Day of Prayer for Vocations Pope Paul said that there are many causes for the vocation decline. The "present crisis of voca· tions is but one aspect of the crisis of faith which troubles the world," he said. The priesthood, Turn to Page Six

the commission's activities. Father Hill, president of the New York-based Morality in Media, Inc., has been feuding with the commission because of its refusal to hold public hearings. He conducted a series of eight hearings on his own in eight cities in February and March "to hear alternative views of the public." He was joined in this project by Rev. Winfrey Link, a Nashville Methodist minister who is also a member of the commission. The commission, which met here announced its decision to hold public hearings in Los Angeles on May 4 and 5 and in Washington a week later.

Speaking in the presence of Bishop Connolly, who is being honored this year on the occasion of his 25th year as a member of the hierarchy, Mr. Murray opened with an informal prayer.. "Appealing in the name of Christ that we spend our lives trying to show the same love, the same compassion, the same concern for the poor and the sick which Yo'u showed when You lived on this earth." "Please help each one of us understand that we are important to this campaign" summarized the prayer of the lay chairman.

The revolution that America "has, backed into by accident as the country moves into a tech-路 nological society," was the topic of the second (>f the James Louis Connolly Lectures, sponsored at SMU by the Newman Association. Peter Beisheim, assistant pro-' fessor of theology at' Stonehill College, spoke on "The Theology of Revolution," explaining that the nation is confronted with problems_ "we, had not planned on: for example the stress on automation and the distrust arid alienation that exists among .segments of society." Tomor.row's theology will concern 'itself, Beisheim said, with, "the liberation of man." He stressed that "man must be able to control himself and his humanity; he must have options and control what happens in the . future. He should not allow media to condition him and lim<:;; it his choices." .

The new theology, said Beisheim, is concerned with man's alienation from himself and hi.s neighbor and with the ,Church's inability to, provide man with hope and vision for the future. Theology, said the educator, must show us "how,"we can overcome fragmentation between. ourselves and others." It must offer a vision of' man, 'must discuss his nature, and' must apply the gospel message to today's society. Discussing violence, he noted that it falls' into four categories: personally overt; institutionally overt; personally covert; institutionally .covert. Ghetto, vio.~nce, he opined,is the result of institutionally covert tactics, as for example when unions or other organizations discriminate against minority groups. Next Connolly lecturer will be' Dr. Brian J. Cudahy, assistant professor of philosophy at Boston College. He will speak on "The Philosophy of Hope" at 1 Wednesday afternoon, Earth Day, in Room 228 of the Group II building at the North Dartmouth campus of SMU. The public is invited to attend.

African .Educator Giv·es Attitude On School Aid

NEW YORK (NC) - The cardinal-archbishop of Quito, Ecuador sees great hope for the Church in his revolution-ridden country because of what he describes as solid commitment of its youth. But at the same time, Cardinal Pablo Munoz Vega, S.J., warned at a news conference here that violence is not asu'itable way to solve social problems. "As revolution which involves the spilling of blood is absolutely not in agreement with the core of the Gospel message," said the 66-year-old prelate. Cardinal Munoz Vega spoke in Spanish to reporters as he was welcomed by the. Ecuadorian Social and Cultural Society of New York at the start of a one-week U. S. tour during which he will also visit Washington D. C., and Chicago. United Episcopacy A noted theologian and former rector of the Gregorian University in Rome, the cardinal made these points to newsmen: Ecuador's 30-member episcopacy is "very united and decisive" with a "deep concern for human development and sQcia) concern." Its young people "live with a very keen sense of social responsibility" and provide great hope in the post-Vatican II era. The "new thing" about today's youth's rebellion is its solidarity as a "distinct new social group" with political power of its own. Peace is diffiCult to attain but "it would be very helpful" for people to give more thought to Pope Paul's emphasis on the reduction of "fantastic expenditures for armaments" and the transfer of thiS'lnoneyTo intensified aid' for underdeveloped peoples. Greater Evils Cardinal Munoz Vega said that what sets today's youth apart from other young generations is their "sense of being a distinct new social group with their own real political power." He added: "When young people unite to support a cause, I don't think any political force can stop them." Violence poses "enormous problems" in Latin America, he commented, adding that it was against the Gospel and "we can not choose one evil for the solution of a still greater one. "And I think that a violent revolution in all of our Latin American countries would produce greater evils and problem.s than"at present. It would cause a series of breakdowns of values and dangers, a civil upset about which we could not anticipate the outcome."

See Further Curbs On Social Action GUATEMALA CITY (NC) Catholic leaders here fear that the wave of violence in this country, climaxed by the recent killing of the West German ambassador, may lead to further government repression and curbs on their legitimate social action efforts. The violence has already gained support for strongman Col. Carlos Arana Osorio, whose election as president was confirmed by congress in midMarch. He ran on a law-an~­ order platform. Political observers here agree that what gave Arana close to 50,000 votes more than his next opponent was the widespread fear of further bloodshed.

Powerless to Deal With High 'Schools Stress Financial, Personnel Problems ST. PAUL (NC)-The St. Paul and Minneapolis archdiocesan Board of Education was characterized a~ powerless to cope with financial and' personnel problems which abound in the field of secondary education.' And the head of the board agreed with much of the criticism leveled in a report by a committee which was appointed to make and study recommendations regarding the archdiocesan high school system. Brother Francis Wray, F.S.C., provincial of the Christian Brothers in thi~ area and former board member, headed the committee. He detailed the report at a meeting of the board here. Brother Wray said the authority of finances and personnel in the archdiocesan high schools now .is vested in the Religious communities and officials who conduct the high schools. "If the board is to have such control, it would have to come from the archbishop and provincials of Religious orders now staffing the schools," Brother Wray reported. . "If you get the power, you're in business. If not, you're out of business," the report said. Agrees With CrIticism Brother Wray, who resigned as committee chairman after submitting the report, said the "illusory" power of the board and also of Father John Gilbert, archdiocesan superintendent of schools, in this area, is not unusual. He said such problems are being faced in Cathloic education in many sections of the country. " The Brother said he has "the feeling" that within two years some 40 per cent of Catholic schools may be forced to close

down and that many teachers may decide to leave the Cath-. olic schools because they afford no protection for the teachers. Jerome Julius, board chairman, said he agreed with most of the criticism made in the report. He admitted he was at a loss to

suggest a way that the board could gain authority. He said he hoped the second school committee will continue to meet and make recommendations. He also indicated that the board will undertake a closer study of the criticisms made in ~he report at coming meetings. ..

ternational group of Catholic educators, can't understand why the government 'is hesitant to grant financial aid to nonpublic . schools. Students from nonpublic schools contribute to the good of the ent!.re country after they graduate, he said. "So why not finance them?" Father Ekwa was part of a delegation from the International Catholic Education Office, attending the National Catholic Educational Association convention here. He said all schools in the Congo-where the administrative office which he heads is located - are financed by the state. Seventy-five per cent of Congo schools are Catholic, 10 per cent are Protestant, and another five per cent are run by a local religious sect, Father Ekwa told NC News. Only 10 per cent ·are state schools, but they are all financially assisted by the state. "What is important is the children," he said. The predominance of Catholic schools is due to the efforts of Belgian missionaries who established schools when the territory was still the Belgian Congo. "The great danger for Africa," Father Ekwa said, "is to form a man technically and to forget to make him honest, charitable, kind." If this happens, "you have made ~ gangster."

Liturgical Reform Commission Holds F'ina I Meeting With Pope VATICAN CITY (NC) - The special commission for liturgical reform which for the past seven years has overseen the sweeping changes of Roman Catholic rites and prayers ended its work with a final meeting and an audience with Pope Paul VI. At the audience Pope Paul warned that the renewal of the liturgy must not be the "arbitrary decisions of anyone" and that people should "abstain from experiments that have not been approved by the competent· authorities of the Church," The Consilium for the implementation of the Second Vatican Council's Constitution on the Liturgy met in Rome to complete the last details of its tasks and formally turned over its mandate to the Congregation for Divine Worship. . .

Variety of Documents The liturgical reform did not conform itself simply to the Mass but touched on almost every sector of the Church's liturgical life. As Pope Paul noted in his farewell address to. the Consilium's nearly 100 members, consultors and guests, the Consilium has issued a wide variety of instructions and documents on liturgical changes. He cited the new ordo of the Mass, changes in the Holy Week liturgy aJ;ld .reform .of the tites of infant Baptism, the ordination of deacons, priests and bishops and the marriage ceremony. Other reforms carried out by the Consilium include the new order of readings for the Mass, which incorporate much more of both the Old and New Testaments into the yearly Mass cycle, funeral rites, the Church

Seven Million Unborn' To Die By Abortion BOSTON (NC) - Seven million unborn children would die in the United States in the next two years as a result of more flexible abortion laws, Auxiliary Bishop Timothy J. Harrington of Worcester, predicted here. Addressing a board meeting of the Boston Catholic Charitable Bureau, the Worcester prelate criticized strongly attempts to make what he termed feticide sociably acceptable. "The basic flaw in this approach will always be that it makes an innocent human being. the victim of people who take it upon themselves to exercise God's perogative," he said. Bishop Harrington reminded that the Judaic-Christian ethic reaffirms the principle that life is a sacred gift and that the inalienability of the right to life is guaranteed by the U. S. Declaration of Independence and the UN Declaration of Human Rights.

provision should be made for programming in each of several age groups (pre-school, primary and elementary) at specified • times. NAB said program quality would diminish with the absence of sponsorship. The FCC itself, it said, recognized this fact in its 1960 Report and Stlttement of Policy on Programming Inquiry when it declared: "* ,~ * sponsorship fosters rather than diminishes the availability of important public affairs and 'cultural' broadcast programming." In refuting the second proposal-that there be no mention or use of any product, service or store - NAB said that this could, in effect, ask the FCC to fulfill an impossible and illegal censorship role. Since children are potential viewers of any program, every existing show would have to be closely screened. NAB urged that parents not consider their children as free agents when it comes to television viewing. "Parents cannot abandon their children to the television set as if it were a mechanical baby-sitter and then ask in return that television take care of the young as if parents had no role to play in the whole matter," it said. Children need guidance and parents must look over their shoulders when watching television, as in all other activities, it said.

WASHINGTON (NC)-Catholic spokesmen who opposed Florida Judge G. Harold Carswell's nomination to the United States Supreme Court have expressed satisfaction with the Senate's 51-45 defeat of President Nixon's second nominee for the court's vacant seat. Father Timothy D. Barry of the St. Louis archdiocesan Commission on Human Rights told NC News that members of the commission were "pleased with the outcome of the Senate vote and hoped that the next nominee named would have a better record in the field of human rights." In Chicago, the deputy director of the National Catholic Conference for Interracial Justice also eJCpressed satisfaction with the Senate vote. Kenneth T. Wilson told NC News that the organization's officials were "gratified by the Senate's support for the sentiment of the people." He added that he hoped President Nixon's search for a candidate for the. bench would "turn up a Southern strict constructionist who can also be objective. We see no reason why a Southern judge cannot meet the requirements for the Supreme Court,"

Expand Social Work In East Germany BERLIN (NC)-Protestant social services for the mentally and physically disabled have been expanded in recent years in communist-ruled East Germany while most other Protestant social work has dwindled. Between 1965 and 1969, the number of homes for' mentally and physically disabled persons increased from 11 to 97 and the number of beds from 537 to 5,927, parish-operated nursing homes fell from 807 to 612, and children's day nurseries fell to 323. Three of 62 Protestant hospitals and convalescent homes and four of 32 children's' and educational homes have had to be abandoned. On the other hand, 30 new training schools for church and social-service education were established, according' to a summary issued by Protestant agencies in East. Berlin.

lV.i!rldlY' R~ligi9(l -J{eligious World

Ed~ard B. Fiske, 'writing in The Ne-w York Times, has concluded' that in the' past two decades "while the, churches were becoming more worldly the world was becoming more religious and that the two passed like ships in, the night."; " , He states that while churchmen were concerned with making Christianity more secular, society, was looking for the transcendent, an area traditionally associated with organized religion. This mystical or spiritual revival in society is seen in increased interest, in the occult, Eastern religion, and primitive practices such as witchcraft. It is seen in the interest in mind-expanding drugs. It is seen in meditation and cnanting and in the resurgence of religious themes in popular music. The' latest Beatle record-perhaps the last that group will make, as a group-is an out and out spiritual experience singing about Mother Mary: It would be frightening if men and women of re,ligion and their leaders were to merely view this happe~­ ing without taking leadership in it. The Rev. David H.C.

WASHINGTON (NC)-An' NC News survey discloses tha.t most Catholic schools throughout t,he area, I;lre adamant in ,refusing ,to become havens for segregationists attempting to escape courtordered public school integration. But some of the schools are facing the problem with great caution.

On the contrary, said the Pontiff, "the young will feel even less attracted to a less generous ideal of priestly life. . . . "Where preparation for the priesthood takes place in an atmosphere full of prayer, of charity, of mortification, the problem of celibacy, does not even arise and the young find it more than natural to consecrate themselves to the Church in a full and total gift of self for the kingdom of God."

T'extbooks solid presentations of Christian doctrine," it said. But' the statement admitted some texts "may be criticized for the emphasis they have laid on certain aspects of Christian doctrine and the lack of emphasis on others, or for their favoring of one .theological opinion ' over another." Father Donlan said he felt the imprimatur has a definite place in' the' Church today. "If writers want to enter a market that is Ultimately the responsibility . of the' Catholic" bishops, then' they' have go.t to, be c'onsulted and 'advised by these bishops," he said.' On ·the' question of ,determfning criteria, Father Donlan said:"I don't· think a publisher h,as any qualifications whatsoeveras' a publisher-to determine the theological quality of religious, books." Pre'late

'Deplores'

Catholics must not give into discouragement nor doubt that God will provide for the good of the Church, he said. "It is necessary to place young men in a position to hear the voice of God who is calling ,them and give their consent to it. Therefore, the responsibilities of families is immense because the possibility of a fruitful internal dialogue with God depends to a large extent on the family atmosphere." Pope Paul stressed that "a community that lives generously according to the Gospel cannot be poor in vocations. Where daily sacrifice keeps the faith alive and maintains the love of God at a high level, vocations for ,the ecclesiastical priestly state continue to be numerous." Favor Confession Fac'e-to-Face MARTINSBURG (NC)-About orie·third :.of the:, young people.. going, 'to' confession at' St.' Jo·' seph's>Church, here in West Virginia choose to sit down and ,face the priest, instead of, kneeling down behind a curtain in the traditional way. Father John F. Kain, pastor, said the priests have not urged the use of face-to-face confes~ sion but have made it known that it is available. "At first only a ,few people made use of it, but now it is becoming more widely used," said. The widest acceptance of the new method "has been among converts to the Church, although many middle-aged people and some very young people have been delighted with the new confessional set-up," Father Kain explained ill a letter published in the Catholic Virginian, Richmond diocesan newspaper. "They are inclined to be more conversatIonal in making their confession, with more give and take between them and the priests. Frequently they go more deeply into specific problems of conscience and behavior than is the custom in the traditional manner of receiving the sacrament. "The reception of the Sacrament of Penance takes a minute or two longer in this fashion, but the impresssion the priests have is that the people who use it are quite pleased," he said.

MoraJ Decay BIRMINGHAM (NC) - Catholics' must fight together to halt a current' moral' slide involving' permissiveness in divorce, abortion, euthanasia anq pornography, Bishop George Dwyer of B,irminghan:i has declared. , In recent addresses to British' lay societies, the prelate noted: "Only 10 years ago it would have been almost impossible to believe that the law could change to allow a man to desert his wife and to obtain a divorce three years later whether or not his wife ,had done anything wrong. "There is now abortion and it has been said' that because of it 20,000 babies were not born last year. What that meant was that 20,000 babies' were killed last year."

Dialogue Appeal Dominican .. Republic Prelates Stress Real Needs· of Country SANTO DOMINGO' (NC)-As vi'olence increases between . the political factions in this country, the bishops have made an urgent appeal for dialogue between incumbent President Joaquin ,Balaguer seeking reelection May 16 and opposition leaders during the election campaign. The elec, tion is May 16. "The gravity of the political situation and' the public statements of some leaders,'" the bishops said in a statement, "prompt us to join in the desire fOl: dialogue as the best means of, communication between men of reason for the good of all the peoples," . The bishop!l asked each faction to gear their political goals. to the real needs of this country. "Politics may be a very noble profession when guided by morals and justice, and there should be the guides for factional leaders," the bishops said. Independent newspapers have warned that dialogue may be the last chance for democracy in the Dominican Republic for some time. When President Balaguer announced in late March that he would run for reelection in the May elections, seven united opposition parties decided to boycot 'the election unless Balaguer resigned for the. remainder of his term, due to end in midAugust. . They charged that their campaign had met. with unfair re-

pression, and claimed that there had been repeated cases of police brutality and bias against their candidates. Balaguer barred all compromise in a' letter categorically rejecting the opposition demand that he resign. He said he would run alone, in a sort of .plebiscite, if necessary. He is backed by the Reformist party and the National Youth movement.

Sees Centralized School Syste~ DENVER (NC)--What will be the role of priests-professional educators and pastors-when a diocese centralizes its school system? The Denver archdiocesan priests' council has asked the Sec's Area Board of Catholic EdlIcation to clarify that question. According to Msgr. William .Jones, education superintendent, and Father Clement de Wall, president of the priests' council, the request really hits on the whole process of shared responsibility. Father De Wall said he sees a crisis ahead for pastors when t.he archdioce!le takes over the operation of all' the parish schools, altho;,tgh that event is still some lime away. He also sees the need for explaining and preparing the priests for their new role when t.hat event happens. "Seventy to 80 per cent of the priests' time is now spent in the administration of parish schools. If in three or four years time the schools are taken over by the archdiocese, we have to decide what we're going to do with their,time," he said. He said he would like the board to take over the operation of the schools, but he would also like the priests' role to be one of support and policy making.

Clergymen Involved In Consul's Release BUENOS AIRES (NC) - A bishop and several priests were involved in negotiations to obtain the release of a kidnaped Paraguayan consul in Argentina, Waldemar Sanchez, in exchange for two students alleged to be political prisoners here. The consul was released by a terrorist grol.1lp known as. the Argentine National Liberation Front without the exchange of students. Sanchez was abducted four days earlier. He serves at a border area post. Bishop Miguel Raspanti of Moron negotiated for Sanchez' release with Interior Minister Francisco Imaz, acting at the request of the kidnapers.

The society, which is not affiliated with the Catholic Theological'Society of America, founded in 1949, in recent years increasingly has sought to orient its"membership and goals toward ecumenical developments.

They decided to hold the society's September, 1972, meeting in San Francisco, in conjunction with an International Religious Conference.

WASHINGTON (NC)-A watered-down but strongly worded warning to be included with each package of birth control pills has been approved by t~e federal government. . Health-Education-Welfare Secretary Robert H. Finch said :the warning would be published In the Federal Register to allow comment from interested parties. The new warning version was detailed some weeks ago by Dr. 'Olarels C. 'Edwards, food and drugs' commissioner, after a longer version brought objections from industry and physicians. The longer version detailed statistics regarding deaths from blood clots each year among women who did and did not use the pill. The draft of the new version, in part, states: "The oral contraceptives are powerful, effective drugs. Do not take these drugs without your doctor's continued supervision." It mentions the danger of side effects and recommends consultation with a physician if continued use cause severe headaches, blurred vision, leg pains, chest pains or unexplained coughs, and irregular or missed .menstrual periods.

T'Ounton, Council Women.~o M'eet

By Joseph and Marilyn Roderick

The Taunton [>istrict of the Diocesan Council of Catholic Women will hold an open meet· ing at 7:30 on Thursday evening, April 23 in the Immaculate Conception Chur<:h auditorium, Taunton.

I was reeently reminded of an article I wrote last year concerning rules for the newly married man in which I repeated a friend's story about breaking dishes, ruining a kitchen floor, etc., so that the little woman would not asl< for help. My recontent with ruining two minder came from a mar- not towels and a few other items of ried woman who suggested the sort that manage to find that I keep hints like these their way under bat\1room counto myself. Her admonition brought to mind an incident related by a close friend for whom I have nothing but respect. It seems that this friend who will go unnamed was invited to a formal affair to which his wife looked forward with anticipation. On the great night he dressed for the event and waited patiently for his· wife to emerge from her housewifely cocoon in regal splendor. However, after more than an hour of waiting he grew so fatigued that he took off his tuxedo, dressed in his pajamas and without so much as a how-do-you-do settled himself in bed for a good night's sleep.

No Husband When his wife finally emerged in her brilliance she was overwhelmed to find her beloved husband had disappeared. She looked high and low and finally found him in the last plac'e she would expect, fast asleep in bed. I<nowing that he o hadn't been feeling well and was. probably truly exhausted she let him sleep the night through while she nursed her wrath for the early morning breakfast which followed. Now any married man knows that it' is o'rie thin~ to' face tM enemy in battle, to fight to the last for something one believes in at the office or to brave the clements for a cause, but there are very few who would dare go to bed in the presence of imminent catastrophe. I certainly would not recommend such a procedure for the newly married man. Such an action must be executed only when enough credits have been stored up in advance; in this case 25 years of happily married life. In the Kitchen "Anyone for kittens?" Our charming 10 month old kitten (excuse me cat) has just made Joe and me grandparents by depositing four little furry bundles on a pile of towels under the vanity in my upstairs 'bathroom (no cellar maternity wards for our ritzy cat). Then,

Maryknoll College President Resigns ST. LOUIS (NC)-Sister Mary Gray McNally resigned effective June 30 after serving six years as president of the 450~st1,Jdent Maryville College of the Sacred Heart here. "The six years tl'!at I have been president have given ample opportunity for me to make what contribution I could. Now that Maryville is embarking on' a new phase of expansion, I feel that it is time for someone else to continue the' work," she said. During her tenure. the college enrollment increased 12 per cent and six months ago merged with Mercy Junior College, a small co-educational school in the vicinity. Sister McNally, 57, plans to remain at the school.

ters, she decides the morning' after the great event that '. more luxurious quarters are called for so (without even asking) she moves them into my linen cupboards (can I help it if I've got a cat that likes printed sheets). All the family had been eagerly awaiting the blessed event and Joe and I had even thought 'that it would be a worthwhile while experience for the children to ·witness the miracle of birth. However, Snowball must have heard our mutterings and decided that she wasn't going to become a living lesson in the art of sex education because she hiked herself upstairs and proceeded to give birth while' all the rest of us were busy cook· ing supper, setting tables, and doing the million and one other things everyone does around the witching hour of five. Why it wasn't until' around 7:30 that Melissa walked into the bathroom arid discovered it had been turned into a delivery room. Marvelous Thing The perfection of _a ba~y at birth has never failed to amaze me and I found myself equally amazed and more than ever conscious of God's work in even such a small event as the birth of kittens. Here's one small cat who only last Spring had to be fed with an eyedropper in order to survive giving birth to four tiny kittens of her own and having the natural instinct to know how to care for them immediately. It's really quite a marvelous thing to see. However I still feel I must stand firm and say, "Anyone for kittens?" I have a thing for anything lemo'n from pie to sauce so when I came across this lemon pudding recipe in a small paper cookbook that I had bought in Vermont I couldn't resist trying it. The results were just as refreshingly delightful as, I had thought they would be. Why don't you try it? Lemon Delight 3 Tablespoons butter

Mix well. 2) Add the egg yolks, milk, lemon juice and rind and beat well with an egg beater until smooth. 3) Fold in the beaten egg' whites. 4) Pour into a greased baking dish set in another pan that has about an inch of hot water in it.

WASHINGTON (NC) ......; Petitions signed by 50,000 persons, collected in the Philadelphia area since last November, backing interests of American farm workers' were presented to congressmen on the U.S. Capitol steps. Five House members from the Philadelphia area accepted the petitions gathered by the Cardinal's Commission on Human Relations of the Philadelphia archdiocese. Rep. William J.

Representatives of the Cardinal's Commission who attended were Msgr. Philip J. Dowling, executive secretary; Sister Regina of Jesus, of th~ Sisters' 'committee and Father Charles V. Devlin, program chairman. Father Devlin, speaking at the presentation, said the commission's effort in securing the signatures "has been a rpodest one."

Diocese Co-Sponsors H'ousing Renewal CAMDEN (NC)-The CaJ'!lden diocese has joined Cooper's Point Neighborhood Action Group in sponsoring a housing redevelopment project in an area known as Poet's Ro'1\'. The plan calls for building and rehabilitating some 90 housing units in an inner city area, inspected in 1968 by the Camden City Council and condemned as unfit housing. The neighborhood group made a survey which disclosed residents would remain in the area if the redevelopment plans made new homes available for purchase. The $2 million project will involve state. and federal funding, in addition to the neighborhood group and diocesan eftorts. Camden's Bishop George H. Guilfoyle said in addition to co. sponsoring the project, the diocese will make available George Downs, its housing consultant, . to the proje<:t. '

CLEVELAND (NC) - An anticipated assembly of 3,000 nuns at a three-day convention here tomorrow will determine whether to form 11 national organization representing 160,000 Reli-· gious women in the United States. Groundwork for the proposed national organization, tentatively called the National Assembly of Women Religious was accomplished by a 40-member task force in February in St. Louis. Sister Ethne Kennedy, task force chairman, said: "Everything now is contingent on the voice of the Sisters in Cleveland. Only if and when the assembly is officially established, when Sisters have chosen to, become members, will it speak definitively of long and short· range goals." Sister Ethne recalled that at a national meeting in Chicago in May, 1969, some 1,500 Sisters voted in favor of forming a national organization for women Religious. At the task force meeting in St. Louis, she said, possible goals, objectives, organizational structures and procedures were outlined 'in preparation for the convention here. Sister Ethne said the goals outlined include communication of a valid concept of the presentday Sister, plus a study, evaluation and recommendations of areas where nuns critically are needed. She said the task force proposes membership be open to individual nuns, Sisters councils, senates and other organizations of Religious women.

Primary Factor in Mid-East Crisis WASHINGTON (NC) - A former president of the United Natio.ns General Assembly calculated that the best effort the UlJited States can contribute, to abating the Middle East conflict is to "pursue a policy of jus~ice and security for all." "Unless we attain that peace and security based on justice, our basic problems are not going to· be-faced or solved," said Dr. Charles H.

"Th.e primary determinant· of the situation in the Middle East is the conflict of interests between Moscow and Washington or the relative presence or absence of Moscow and' Washil;lgton in the area," he said. In an interview with NC News, Dr. Malik,. now a professor .of philosophy at American University in Beirut, Lebanon, added: "This matter conditions and de-' termines and complicates all other problems that arise there."

'Hands Are Tied' Their action followed a' ruling by Suffolk Probate Court Judge Robert G. Wilson who denied a petition of Roberto Monnar Jr., for adoption of his illegitimate son. Under the existing law, a mother has the primary right to determine the status of a child born out of wedlock. In his decision Judge Wilson said the unwed mother of the .child signed a legal agreement with the Catholic Charitable !Peace With Justice Bureau for adoptive placement. He said he acted "reluctantly" "The United States, being such because he sympathized with a a great .power," he added, "can man "who has brought a human always help under all conditions,. being into this world and wants but Clln help best if it pursues to provide for him ~, (, ,;, but my a policy of justice and security hands are tied." for all."

.Dr. Malik wondered "how much the United States during the last generation was· really governed by ideas and philosophy springing from the majority of the people? Is it possible that the United States may have'been governed by .a minority?" he asked. "Nixon may be trying to return the country to a policy that represents 80 per cent of the people." He expressed concern about the situation in U. S. universities. "Something' profound has happened," he said, "and something radical must be done." Speaking of young' people, he said:' "Twenty-one young Americans have been imprisoned in Beirut in the last two years for smuggling hashish out of the co~ntry.

Guilty Priests Stay in HidingBALTIMORE (NC)--A Josephite priest convicted here of destroying Selective Service records and four others convicted on similar charges will not surrender to federal authorities to begin serving prison sentences. Father Philip Berrigan, S.S.J., and co-defendant David Eberhardt, in a signed statement mailed to Baltimore radio and television stations, said the five. planned to place themselves in the custody of peace movement f>upporters. The letter admitted the group had committed "crimes against paper" by destroying draft board records in the Baltimore suburb of Catonsville in May 1968. They described their crimes as "crimes of blood and fire favoring life and condemning death; crimes of protesting an $85 million daily waste in a brutal, futile war. "In a word, crimes of hope, relationship, community, justice, freedom. . . ,'. "We will therefore not surrender to the officers of this government," the letter concluded. "Rejecting its custody, we will seek the custody of peace people, and resist one last time in jail." Be~ides Father Berrigan and Eberhardt, the five refusing to surrender include Father Berri· gan's brother, Father Daniel Berrigan, S.J.; Mary Moylan, a nurse; and George Miche. All were scheduled to report April 9 to begin serving terms for their anti-war activities.

F'our Dioceses To Join Council

PORTO ALEGRE (NC)Catholic leaders in Brazil are giving their full cooperation 'to the general assembly of the Lutheran World Federation being held here in July. Close to 2000 delegates are expected to attend. Cardinal Vicente Scherer of Porto Alegre told the Rev. Karl Gottschald, head 'of the 750,000member Lutheran Church Confession in Brazil, that "we will do all within our power to help you make this assembly a success." In a visit to the headquarters of the organizing committee at a church complex being rushed for completion before the assembly opens July 14 the cardinal offered the hospitality' of Catholic homes for the delegates as well as the Church facilities in this southern archdiocese of two million Catholics.

Priest Asks Better Land Reform Law KOTIAYAM (NC)-Exemption of big rubber and tea estates can hurt lana reform in this part of India, a Jesuit priest has declared. Father Mathew Mooziyil, S.J., of the Lumen Institute, Cochin, told an all-faith meeting on land imd housing problems here that the land reform's aim of reducing the great gaps between rich and poor here can be thwarted if flexible ceilings on land holdings are permitted. . The new law gives tenants legal title to land around their houses after nominal payments. It was originally introduced by the pro-Peking communist Kerala state government, but after that regime was ousted communists called on the tenants to seize the lands rather than go through the formalities of legal transfer. The state government appealed to landowners to surrender property voluntarily to the tenants. Two Catholic archdioceses were among the first to respond, surrendering church-owned land to hundreds of tenants, Hindus and Moslems as well as Christians, who lived on the. land.

What should the reaction of the Christian citizen be to arms iimitation in general and to these particular talks? To bring ,; the nations' uncohtrolled arms spending under some rational, jn'ternational control is a step toward ,t h e outlawing of war and there can be little dispute about general doctrine, Any defense of· war' by the Church in the past. has been based on the idea' that justice and self-defimse must at times be defended by force. Any society, national or international,' needs a police force-in other words, enough power to'restrain violence and ill-doing. But actions .by the pol~c~ are or should be limited and specific and under the jurisdiction of a legitimate. legal authority. Complete Corruption The difficulty about nuclear war is that it cannot be limited or specific. Of its very 'nature, it must corrupt the whole planetary. environment, drea,dfully in, volving' the innocent and defenseless everywhere. Worse still, it contaminates, through genetic damage, the wholly innocent children of the 21st century. A war between major powers fought with nuclear weapons cannot fit into any acceptable definition of defense. Pope Paul drew the conclusion from these facts when he cried out in anguish to the United Nations Assembly: ."No more war-never· again war." The talks on the limitation of strategic arms on which R~ssia and America are now' engaged are simply a particular instance of the wider case. There is no conceivable issue of justice or national self-protection which can be satisfied by destroying more than half each other's people and cities at' once' and most of the rest of the population mor~ slowly by epidemics and radiation. Moreover, since contamination strikes both attacker and attacked, 'no conceivable escalation to nigher levels of destructiveness gives any greater' ra-

minimal opportunity to ~ppcar and to respond to, a charge," the judge said. The assembly had ordered Father Groppi jailed for up to six months for his role in a welfare protest and the forceable takeover of the State Assembly chambers last November. JUdge Doyle said the assembly's action violated the priest's rights because he did not have an opportunity to respond to the charges.

knowledging both Jews and Arabs have a legitimate claim to. Israel, a rabbi here believes Christians should be acting as mediators in the dispute instead bf taking sides. Rabbi - Arthur Hertzberg, president, Conference of Jewish Social Studies, told the 20th annual Institute on Judaism here: :'The conflict in the Middle East is not a conflict between right and wrong, but between right and right. Christian involvement there is the most problematic, most ambiguous and most tormented." Balfour Declaration He noted the Jewish claim to' the Holy Land is bound up in the 1917 Balfour Declaration, a British government statement favoring establishment in Palestine of a national home for Jews without prejudice to civil and religious rights of existing nonJewish communities. He added the Jewish claim also stemmed from history. "The Balfour declaration probably wasn't meant seriously but the Jews took it seriously. And they acted accordingly so that today there are nearly one million Jews ,in Israel," the rabbi pointed out. Possible ·Solution The Arabs were a majority in Israel before the Jews began pouring in during the 1900s, he continued. More than a million Arab refugees have been displaced from their land, most of them. hi 1967 during the six-day war, he declared. "The Arabs want all refugees returned to their land. They want a Palestine under partition with a one man, one vote system. This is unacceptable to the Zionist government because it would give the Arabs the majority and mean the dissOlution of the present government," he said. Rabbi Hertzberg feels one possible solution to the problem would be 'to resettle the Arab refugees elsewhere "with considerable help from the rest of the world." Role of ConciUlator He said if there was an equal distribution of Arabs and Jews, partition would work. It has been tried twice in the past and both attempts have led to riots and pogroms, he added, saying: "The Holy Land is as precious to Christians as it is to Jews and Christians wish to safeguard their interests." Christians have the opportunity to play the role of concilIiator in the Middle East, but over the years have acted as partisans," he commented.

Nuns Defend School Closing Proposal ST. PAUL (NC)-The School Sisters of Notre Dame defended a proposal for closing the 90-student Assumption parish school here, pointing out that the alternative would be the closing of the 260-student St. John Vianney school. The nuns position was made in a three-page statement issued by Sister Paula Young, the community's public relations director, The statement came in the wake of a statement issued by Msgr, George Ziskovsky, pastor of Assumption parish, who criticized the nuns for the proposal of closing his parish school.

Church in Cambodia Suffers Handicap Vietnamese Preponderant in Catholic Community PHNOM PENH (NC)-Cambodian political, and military lea<iers, moving to stave off attacks by Vietnamese communists and posl'ible civilian uprisings in support of ousted Prince Norodom Sihanouk, have brought the eyes of' the world to still another of Asia's trouble spots. Impetus for the rightist coup that deposed Sihanouk came from an outbreak of anti-communist and especially of antiVietnamese riots throughout the country. In bitter resentment of Vietnamese presence in their country -both as Viet Cong and North Vietnamese invaders and as peaceful aliens - Cambodians rioted in the Vietnamese quarter of Phnom Penh, the Cambodian capital. Vietnamese were attacked and killed, their homes, shops, churches and temples destroyed. Two of the houses of worship destroyed were Vietnamese Catholic churches. Yet observers here hastened to point out that the mob's outrage was not directed against the churches because they were Catholic, but because they were Vietnamese. The history of Catholicism in Cambodia seems to indicate that the observers' claim is correct. The story of Cambodian Catholicism is one of placid development unmarked either by great waves of conversion or by oppression. Priest Martyred Of the 62,000 Catholics in Cambodia today, about 55,000 are Vietnamese. There are about 2,000 Chinese and less than 5,000

BOSTON (NC)..,.... After a 20day stay, Cardinal Richard Cushing of Boston left S1. Elizabeth Hospital here and returned to his residence in nearby Brighton. . The 74-year-Old cardinal was ordered to the hospital March 19 for treatment of a stubborn infection which had failed to respond to medication. The cardinal will resume his usual schedule on a gradual basis, a spokesman said. During his stay in the hospital, the cardinal made news with an Easter statement, read from the pulpit of Holy Cross cathedral, asking for amnesty for young protestors, jailed or awaiting trial, and draft dissenters. A number of Protestant leaders supported the cardinal's proposal. Cardinal Cushing was visited at the hospital by Archbishop Luigi Raimondi, Apostolic delegate in the United States, who brought 'the cardinal a personally autographed message from Pope Paul VI expressing "special solicitude for your health" and imparting the apostolic blessing to him and the archdiocese.

Study Membership In World Council VATICAN CITY (NC) - Possible membership of the Roman Catholic Church in the World Council of Churches will be studied by a joint commission of the two bodies at a meeting in Naples May 23-30. "This is only a preliminary study, a look at the advantages for both sides and the disadvantages," said Father John Long, S.J., an official of the Vatican Secretariat for Promoting Christian Unity. "The commission will look at the theological difficulties involved, the policy of the World Council, the problem of a Church universal becoming a member of an organization made up of national churches. The dozen delegates from each side will not make any decision of the question, not even a recommendation. They will just look at the question, summarize how they see it and turn their findings over to a special study group."

LORETTO (NC) Maurice Stokes, a legend in prayer and . perseverance, has come back to stay at little St. Francis College, here in Pennsylvania where he gained All-America basketball fame. and developed a love for the Catholic faith. The onetime "Mighty Mo" was interred on the college grounds, his resting place to serve as a memorial to future St. Francis ·students. Father Vincent R. Negherborn, T.O.R., college president, officiated at a requiem Mass for Stokes in the college chapel anp at the burial. Stokes, 36, died of a heart attack in Good Samaritan Hospital, Cincinnati, where he had .battled against paralyzing encephalitis for 12 years. He first came to St. Francis College in the early' 1950s from his native Pittsburgh. He grew into a 6-foot-7, 240-pound center, became the college's first AllAmerica in 1955 and plunged into a promising pro basketball career with the Rochester (N.Y.) Royals, becoming the NBA rookie of the year. Baptized on Plane When the team moved to Cincinnati, he had become a close friend of another Royal star, Jack TwYman,. now a successful Cincinnati insurance 'executive and sportscaster. The world just about came to an end for the mighty Negro star on March 15, 1958. The Royals had lost a. game to Detroit in an NBA play-off. Stokes had been knocked cold in the game but revived and continued play. On the plane flight back to Cincinnati, he collapsed. Twyman, who ofte~. had di.scussed Catholicism with Stokes and had heard him say he wanted .to become a Catholic, baptized the unconscious star on the plane. At the hospital in Cincinnati, Stokes received the last rites of the Church. Then began an uphill battle for Stokes. Twyman, playing his brother's keeper, became Stokes' legal guardian, although Stokes' mother, a sister and brother sur-' vive him. Twyman arranged benefit basketball games among pros and in' other sports to defray the enormous medical and hospital expenses in Stokes' battle to regain the conscious world~ His recovery was slow, tedious. But in late 1963, Stokes had recovered sufficiently to' take in~

. New Zealand Mixed Marriages Increase DUNEDIN (NC)-More than half. the marriages now being contracted by Catholics in New Zealand are mixed marriages, according to a survey made by the National Office for Ecumenism of the New Zealand bishops. The survey is part of an extensive examination of the problem of mixed marriages launched by the bishops last' April. Subsequent steps will seek informa~ tion on the problems and tensions in' mixed marriages and information from ministers' of other Churches.. In 1968, the' last year for which statistics are available, there were 3,819 marriages in the C!ltholic Church in New Zealand. Of these, 2,353 were. mixed marriages. The Wellington archdiocese had' 921 mixed marriages, or 66 per cent; the Auckland diocese 792, 55 per cent; the Dunedin diocese, 218, 59.4 per cent; and the Christ~ church diocese, 422, 68.5 per .-' cent.'

'Tried to Bear Down' , Through use of whirlpool baths, physical therapy devices, isometric exercises, Stokes' was able to -manipulate an electric typewriter. One of the first me~sages he wrote now is a fitting epitaph for the courageous athlete. It is: . "I always tried to bear down in competition, but I never had to put it out as' hard as I do in this exercising."

Schedule Hearing On Maryland's Abortion Bill

THE ANCHOR·Thurs., 'Apri~ 16, 1970

Ask Cooperation Of Broadcasters

. ANNAPOLIS (NC)-Gov. Marvin Mandel has scheduled a public hearing April 22 on a measure passed by the state legislature which would give Maryland the most liberal abortion law in thc country. The governor has not yet indicated what action he will take on the measure. Leaders of Maryland's Catholics have spearheaded opposition to the measure which would repeal existing abortion laws and permit a pregnant woman, regardless of residence, to obtain an abortion for any reason, at any time during the gestation period, by a licensed physician in a state approved hospital. . The measure makes the abortion a matter between thc woman and the physician, without regard to the wishes of the husband or father of the unborn child. A pastoral letter by Cardinal Lawrence Shehan was read in all churches in the Baltimorc archdiocese at Sunday Masses cmphasizing "the constant teaching of the Church that human life from the very beginning of its cxistence is sacred-the most sacred thing on earth." The cardinal listed a variety of reasons why the measure is unacceptable, ;'primarily' on moral grounds" but also as "particularly bad social Icgislation." 'Legalized KillIng' On thc same day a lettcr by Cardinal Patrick O'Boyle was read in all churches in the Washington archdiocese, which inclUdcs' fivc 'counties~in .Ma~- . land. Cardinal O'Boyle warned the "danger of abortion threatens us all." He declared: "Legalized killing is no sectarian issue. Whatever we do now to prevent this legislation from going into cffect will be a contribution to human life, to the right to live, to justice. and equality, even to civilization itself." He also reminded that "even the nazis did not go this far in legalizing abortion." Shortly after the legislature approved the measure on March 31, the Maryland Catholic Conference composed of Cardinals Shehan and O'Boyle and Bishop Thomas J. Mardaga of the Wilmington, Del., diocese, which includes nine Maryland .counties, sent a message to Gov. Mandel opposing the legislation and allking a public hearing on it."

2,000 Houses Built In India District COCHIN (NC) - Forty new houses for the poor have been completed here by the Malabar rite Catholic archdiocese of Ernakulam here in India, bringing the total in a seven-year archdiocesan program to over 2,000 houses built against an cventual goal of 4,000. Money received in payment for the houses is used to continue the building program, its sponsor, Cardinal Joseph Parecatti!, explained. . In blessing the newest group, the prelate said that although he felt that a complete solution to Kerala stat.c' housing problems may not exist, the government and thc public must work together to deal with the situation, and eliminate the mud huts that are homes for many here.

Rabbi Asks Study Of Intermarriage KIAMESHA LAKE (NC)-=-The president of the Rabbinical Assembly has called for formation of a commission to study increasing intermarriages involving Jews. Rabbi Ralph Simon of Chicago said the commission should include rabbis from grassroots congregations as well as rabbinic scholars and lay people. "It is clear to us in the American rabbinate that the number of mixed marriages is increasing," he told the opening meeting of the 70th annual Rabbinical Assembly, a clergy organization of Conservative Judaism, here in New York. About 500 rabbis attended the session here. A 1969 questionnaire by the' assembly showed that "at least" 3,000 converts were admitted to the Conservative movement in one year. On thc basis .of this estimate "we can project that almost 10,000 will join the ranks of Judaism annually" in its three major traditions, he said.

Claude Pepper, Florida Democrat and chairman of the committee making the report, said: "Only one out of the hundreds of drug users that testified did not start out· with marijuana." At· the ·same· time, the report calls for reduced' legal penalties in cases involving possession and use marijuana. It did not call marijuana itself -addictive, and said present penalties for first-time users are tQO severe. Rep. Pepper said he inclines toward a Nebraska statute which provides that first offenders receive a· mandatory seven-day sentence in the county jail and a course' of instruction on drug abuse. There is no fine for a first offense, and those imprisioned unlJer this statute are separated from prisoners convicted other offenses.

VATICAN CITY'(NC)-A new' papal commission has been set up to provide for the spiritual needs of emigrants, travelers, and other people on the move. The new Vatican office is called the Pontifical Commission for the Pastoral Care of Emigration and Tourism. It has been set up to take care of the spiritual needs of emigrants, temporary migrants, nomad peoples such as gypsies, and sailors, airline and airport personnel and religious pilgrims. In ,setting up the new commission, Pope Paul VI has actually combined five separate offices which have existed in the Vatican for various periods of time and have been attached to various ,congregations of the Roman Curia, the Church's central administrative offices. In the document establishing the neW commission Pope Paul said that. "to provide better for the spi.ritual welfare of those who live away from home, it now seems expedient that these activities be useful1y and effectively united and placed under one direction." The five specialized offices now united are the Higher Council for Emigration; the Apostolate of the Sea; the Apostolate of the Air; the Apostolate of Nomadic Peoples and the Office for the Pastoral Care of Tourism.

or is imminent arc mounting lImong Ukrainians abroad. The fears were stirred by reports that Soviet authorities have sentenced a Ukrainian-rite Catholic archbishop to three years in prison for "ideological sabotage." The prelate, Archbishop Basil Welczykowski, C.SS.R., was consecrated secretly by Cardinal Josip Slipyi of Lvov before the Soviet Union permitted the cardinal to leave the country and live in exile in Rome: The archbishop had been arrested before, in 1946, and once was even reported dead.

Quake Victims NEW DELHI (NC) - India's national Catholic relief agency, Caritas India, has donated $1,300 for victims of an earthquake that hit parts of Gujerat state.

Attleboro Is Odds-On Choice In Bristol County Track The current and interesting Bristol League track season is expected to mirror the last campaign with Attleboro, Msgr. Coyle High of Taunton and Bishop Stan-g of Dartmouth fighting it out for the final standing for the top spot. And, once again Attleboro (Crowe's Oliver Ames teams is the odds-on choice to cap- compiled a 44-5 mark from 1961ture the number one posi- 65) indicates thai he has been tion. Coach Tom Crowe's extremely successful in achieving Jewelers humbled Durfee High of Fall River in the loop's opener, 92-21, and, in so doing, served notice to the rest of the circuit that they are out to extend their undefeated skein against league opponents. The Bombardiers were unbeaten in pennant competition last Spring when they captured the championship. In the ,four years Crowe has been at the helm, the Blue and White have compiled a 23-4 won-and-lost record in BCL meets. OVer the years, Coach Crowe has fielded teams that are well balanced with considerable depth in each event. His record of 67-9

his goal. ' The current Jewelers are no Exception. The team has displayed strength in both the running and field events. This factor, coupled with depth in most events, makes Attleboro tough to beat. Both Coyle and Stang win be slightly stronger than last Spring when they finished second and third in the league. However, it appears that neither will have enough to overtake Attleboro. Bishop Feehan High of Attleboro, Taunton, Durfee and· New Bedford Vocational all have strong individual performers but lack the depth necessary to cop the championship.

Performers Focus on Event Records This year the high and low hurdles have been added to the list of required events, raising the number of events in a County dual m,eet to 13. All league meets will consist of the 100-yard dash, 120-yard low and high hurdles, 220 and 440-yard dashes, 880 yard run and one and two-mile runs. Field events will be contested in the long jump, high jump, shot put and discus. The final event of each meet will be the 880-yard relay. The campaign is sure to produce some record breaking performances that have marked the past few seasons. In fact, record setting seems to be a practice as only two BCL records have endured for more than a decade. Those two were set'in i959 when Coyle and Fairhaven were the track powers and, coincidentally, the records are held by athletes of the two schools. Coyle's Michael "Barney" 0'Hearne set the long jump mark with a leap of 21' 7" and Ray

Arruda soared 6' ~" to establish the high jump record. While' no record is sacred, it appears as though these two will be difficult to beat .even in this age of the ever-improving ath· lete. If one is to fall, in all probability, it will be ,in the high jump. The most likely candidate to set a new record is Tom Reeves of Attleboro who has already cleared 5' 10" in competition. Teammate Charlie McKnight has duplicated the feat and might possibly best Reeves. Steve Howance of Durfee, who performed well in Winter, also has an outside chance to put his nam'e in the record book. O'Hearne's record appears to be relatively safe as the loop's best long jumpers are only flirting with the 20' mark. If conditions are favorable, the 100 yard dash record may go by the board this season. Alan Rich of Coyle, who has been clocked at 10 seconds could improve his time before the end of the campaign.

Cream of Crop Vie in County Meet lbe official BCL 100-yard record is 10.1 held by Josef Bartek and Dave Broughton of Stang, Bill Leahy of New Bedford Vocational and Attleboro's standout Earl Fielding. The prospect of setting a new record is somewhat diminished by the fact that the mark must be established while competing in the County meet, and not in dual competition. Performances in dual meets are applicable only to school records. The BCL meet is scheduled in Attleboro on May 27. Other marks that will be, the focal point for this year's trackmen include Tom Murphy's '67 220-yard wash in 22.2 when he was competing for the Attleboro Jewelers, the 51.3 of Coyle's Bob Dewey in 1965 and Alan Patenaude's I :58.2 in the 880, also in 1965.

The circuit's premiere milers will be shooting for a time under 4:29:5, the mark set by Coyle's Dave Hoye in 1966. The two milers will have to better Dave Skivington's 10:24.9 to dethrone the Feehan titleholder. Dave Hart of Attleboro will be among those trying to wrest the shot put title mark away from older brother Tom, set in 1966. Tom's heave of 58' %" is a formidable toss that may withstand the challenge of this year's 50footers, including Dave. Joe Silvia of Durfee presently holds the record in the discus by'virtue of his 149' 5 Y2" toss in the 1968 County meet. The league's relay record was set in 1966 by the Attleboro team which included Frank Marcoccio, Mike Martin, Dave Thornhill and Tom Murphy.

Only a sophomore, "Nick" was a contributing factor in the Redmen's 10-8 season despite his low point production. But Al didn't have to score to make his presence felt.

Known as a bruising body checker , Nickerson tied for the team leadership in penalties with a total of 26 minutes in the sinbin but when he wasn't banging bodies he was busy thawing himself at potential enemy goals. In several contests, "Nick" was credited with nearly as many stops as the UMass 'netminder.

The list of returness include this year's leading scorer, Jack Edward (27 points) of Milton and both varsity goalies. Canniff has reason to be optimistic. In addition to his bumper crop of youngsters, it's interesting to note that in all eight losses, only one was by more than three goals. Nickerson is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Alvan NICkerson, 11 Snapper Lane, Falmouth and is a 1968' graduate of Lawrence High School.

Proposes India Rites Share Churches COCHIN (NC)-Sharing of ex· isting churches by members of Kerala's three Catholic rites has been proposed by a Church committee investigating conflict between the rites here. Pointing out that members (of various rites have no difficulty in attending liturgical services of a different rite, the committee headed off an effort to construct new church buildings. The committee, ,consisting of a bishop and a priest from each of Kerala's three rites ~Latin, Malabar and Malankara - was named by a national conference of Indian bishops held here in January.

THE ANCHOR_Thurs., April 16, 1970

Appeal Continued from Page One are all members of the Mystical Body of Christ". Mr. Murray asked his hearers to put on the compassion of Christ in caring for that portion of the flock that cannot care for itself-the poor, the needy, the dependent. And he urged a special caring this year because all -bishop: priests, Sisters, lay people-are the Church and must work together to care as Bishop Connolly has been caring through his, ~ears as spiritual leader of the Diocese. Bishop Gerrard,' Auxiliary Bishop of the Diocese of Fall River appealed to the charityminded audience of the tremendous accomplishments' of care that are evidence of Bishop Connolly's loving care for the aged, the exceptional child, the incurably afflicted and the 'other agencies .aided by the annual Catholic Charities Appeal. Bishop Gerrard pointed out that in the poor and needy must be seen the image of Christ and that th~ spirit .and thought of Christ must be the - motivating force behind the Appeal. In an age that looks to the State and Federal governments for help, the spirit of charity must assert itself and does in the Appeal and toward those whom it aids. The reason for the Appeal still remains the sentiment of Christ -that what is done for the least of His brethren is done for Him. Speaking briefly at the end of the meeting, Bishop Connolly reviewed what is being dO'1e for the aged and infirm, the mentally retarded and the youth of th.e Diocese. He pointed out that there are sometimes voices of criticism over buildings that have been put up but he asked how the retarded and infirm could be otherwise taken care of. And he said that the real monuments to the Appeal and the charity of those contributing are not buildings but the work and sacrifice and caring that goes on and is supported by the Appeal. The work of caring could not be' done so well without the Appeal, 路and the needs that the Appeal serves grow steadily. Rev. Msgr. Anthony M. Gomes, Diocesan Appeal Director, explained the techniques and mechanics of the campaign. Pupils from Nazareth Hall for exceptional children won the hearts of the. large gathering with two. dance skits under the supervision of Sister Maureen, RSM" principal of the school. Bishop Stang High School Band provided music prior, during and after the meeting: . The Special Gift phase of the Appeal will begin Monday when 710 vo!unteer solicitors will call on 3,125 business, industry, professional and fraternal groups ~.hich, in the past, have gratuItlOusly responded with sizeable gifts toward the 31 agencies rendering services in communities of the 1194 square miles of the Diocese of Fall River.
