Chicago Plnpils: Receive Education Through Closed Circuit TV CHICAGO (NC)-The fate of tax money is a source of curiosty, irritation and puzzlement to many Americans. An opportunity to see one way tax money is fruitfully spent is available in certain public and Catholic elementary schools of Chicago. The vehicle is closed circuit TV instruction. The Chicago public school system qeveloped classroom T V instruction in 1960, but only since 1966 has the program been federally funded through Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. There are now some 24,000 students in 40 schools, all in urban poverty areas, participating in the program. Its purpose is to raise the general educational level of youngsters from disad· vantaged backgrounds. Some 4,000 of the children in the program are from 15 Catholic schools. They are able to take part be· cause of Title One's provision that the federal funds involved be used to meet the needs of disadvantaged children, regardless .of the type of school they attend. . Cluster System Through a cooperative arrangement with the public school system, Catholic schools' with students who qualify under Title I receive ,all necessary instructional TV material and equipment. Under the guidance of Carole R.

a full day's schedule of classroom instruction, five days a week. There are now five clusters made up of six to eight receiving schools. Instruction takes in all areas of the usual school curriculum as well as _classes on Black studies, music, art, story telling and current events. Miss Nolan said the TV curriculum is developed during Summer training and planning sessions. Each cluster, she explained, has a steering committee made up of representatives from the participating public and Catholic schools. Main Conflict There are about 100 teachers involved in the actual TV production, said Miss Nolan, including 20 lay and Religious teachers from Catholic schools. TV courses are taught on videotape and are: shown throughout the school year on two sepa- . rate channels used for reception in schools. Additional courses are taped during the school year.

NEWARK (NC)-For the aver· age Catholic, the issuance of Pope Paul's encyclical on birth control called for assent and an end to argumentation over the rights of conscience, Archbishop Thomas A. Boland of Newarl< said here. Speaking at a meeting of the Archdiocesan Council of Catholic Women, Archbishop Boland said that even though study of the issue is still open to theologians, conscience must be viewed as providing an objective norm "formed according to the Gospels and the rules of the Church." He referred to recent statements _on conscience made by Pope Paul and said "there is no question about the obligation of conscience in connection with the Holy FatJ:ler's encyclical on birth control." Archbishop Boland asked the w~men to be on the alert in regard to current legislative debate over abortion reform and tax reform in New Jersey. Noting that 26 states are currently considering mitigating abortion laws, the archbishop said "there is no reason we could give thatkvould legitimatize a~ortion, because it is against the natural and divine law." Liberalization of the law, he said, could lead to other excesses, notably a move to make euthanasia legal. I

Vermonters Seek Voic路e in Choice Of Hierarchy BURLINGTON (NC)
Vermonters Organized for a Choice in the Episcopacy is being formed here to study the process by which Bishops are chosen, with an eye to wider participation on the part of the whole Church community in their selection. A representative group of both laymen and clergy, is seeking "the creation of a fuller awareness within the Roman Catholic Church of the responsibility of the individual Christian, the extent of his authority and the gravity of his ministry by introducing him more directly in the process by which bishops are chosen." A Burlington priest, who has been involved in the formation of VOCE, believes the main function of the group is "educational."
"I see the group principally as a catalyst, a stimulant to get people to think about the process of selecting a Bishop, to educate them to this process," he said. Membership is open to all Catholics.

His next wor~s, "I know mine and mine know me:' had a very personal meaning to His followers, incorporating a sense of closeness, intimacy-even mutual possession.

Bishop in Vermont Hints Re'tirement BURLINGTON (NC) - Bishop Robert F. Joyce of Burlington has hinted he may retire in 1971 or sooner. The 73-year-old prelate is two years short of the Vaticanrecommended retirement age. He will be 75 in 1971. Bishop Joyce indicated a change in the Burlington bishopric in a letter he sent to diocesan priests concerning salary increases for them.

LANSING (NC) - Michigan's Educaid Bill, which provides for state financial assistance for the education of children attending Michigan's nearly 1,000 non-public schools, jumped its first hurdle when it was approved by the House Education Committee. The bill was immediately referred to the House Appropriations' Committee which will consider its finanical implications. The bill continues to gain support. Senate Majority Leader Emil Lockwood said he favors Educaid. Expressing concurrence with Michigan State Chamber of Commerce endorsement of the bill, Lockwood said Educaid could be financed with an increase in the cigarette tax or possibly an increase in the state income tax. Sen. Jerome T. Hart said Lockwood's announcement is "very significant," and he predicted the Educaid bill would pass in the Senate" if the vote were taken today, next week or next month." House Speaker William Ryan said he believes chances of passing the bill in both the House and Senate are "very good."

On the spiritual scene at St. Anthony's High in New Bedford, seniors have made their annual retreat, this year at Our Cady of Round Hill Retreat House, South Dartll)outh. A recent bible vigil for students was sponsored by the National Honor Society and included viewing of a film, "Christ the King," Tennis has begun at Holy Family High, also New Bedford, and the school's Catholic Action Movement is planning a day of spiritual renewal for members. An upcoming cake sale sponsored by CAM will benefit a fund to send representatives to a Summer school of Christian living. Junior Prom And a~ Bishop Cassidy High in Taunton preparations are under way for the junior prom, to be held Saturday night in the school auditorium. Today, however, more serious matters are going forward as senior students replace teachers at those formidable front-of-the-room desks. The principal's office has been taken over by Claire Eagan, with Bar-' bara Ventura assisting her as school secretary. . Used to be that you were in college before you thought of Summer trips abroad with fellow-students, but now it's on the high school level. Mt. St. Mary Academy in Fall River and Stang High'in North Dartmouth are among diocesan schools that will be sponsoring European study-trips come Summer. The senior government class at St. Anthony's recently participated in a state-sponsored stu-' dent government exchange program. Purpose of the project is to acquaint city teens with the workings of town governments and vice versa. Participating schools prepare scrapbooks' explaining the 'operation of their local governments for the benefit of visiting students, and the best such scrapbook will receive an award. SAH students as their part in the exchange program' visited the high schools and towns of Westboro and West Bridgewater and in turn welcomed students from those communities to New Bedford. Debate Champs At Cassidy Jane Masi and Kathleen Curley led their team to the championship of the Narry Interscholastic Debate League, defeating St. Catherine's of Newport in playoffs held at the Taunton school. The score was 46 to 44 and the victory . marked the second year in a row that Cassidy has tied for first place in the league.

It should also include interested parents and representatives of parish and diocesan lay organizations. The Family Life Division suggests that the committee define its objectives, explore the resources at its disposal and adapt program formats suitable for the projected program in the individual diocese. "As soon as possible, the committee should set up an inservice training program for all teachers," and, simultaneously, should institute "a diocesan-wide program of adult education'" for parents, dealing with informa路tion on child development "concentrating on the psycho-sexual development of the child from birth to maturity." Program for Parents The guidelines also recommended establishment of .a coordinating coinmitteebefore the program begins in the school. This committee should include "the pastor or his delegate, the principal and. one of the teachers and at least two officers of the parents' association. This committee would: Present the program to parents, teachers and the local community; Plan a special orientation program for parents; Study, select and evaluate educational materials for the program. The guidelines ,also suggest that "in the months prior to implementing the program in the schools, a special series of meetings should be held to acquaint .parents with more precise aspects of' the program and to elicit their support and cooperation at home." Such meetings, the guidelines said, "are most effective if held in a parent-teacher setting." Grave Obligation I ~n .his introduction to the gUidelmes Father McHugh cited the U.

education of children in human sexuality, adapted to the maturity and background of our young people. "We are under a grave obligation, in part arising from the new circumstances of modern cu'lture and communications, to assist the family in its efforts to proviqe such training. "This obligation can be met either by systematic provision of such education in the diocesan school curriculum 路or by the inauguration of acceptable educational programs under other diocesan auspices, including the Confraternity of Christian Doctrine."
Goal of Press Continued from Page One their language about things they understand-if it is to teach ef-' fectively, to mQiivate and to persuade persons to bring Christ into their lives. Gile said the Catholic press must move into areas "where there is widespread difference of opinion' and intense emotional feeling. It must summon Christians to action to bear witness to Christ by undoing the heavy burden and letting the oppressed go free. "It must repeat the call of Christ," he continued, "to leave our possessions and follow himto find our true selves by losing ourselves in service to others, fighting poverty, disease, war, ignorance, prejudice and hunger."
MIAMI (NC)' - Rep. Claude Pepper of Florida told a Knights of Columbus meeting here that there must be a means of "breaking down the barriers that have existed in the past" to federal and state aid for all children regardless of what schools they attend. "As far as I am concernsd," Pepper said, "except for the teaching of religion or the practice thereof, I favor public sup-' port for the education and care of all children, regardless of race, color or creed," Pepper added that he always has supported all aid to education programs which do not violate the principle of separation of church and state. He addressed more than 500 members of the K. of C. and hteir wives at a K. of C. Founder's Day dinner. Also present was Archbishop Coleman F. Carroll of Miami, who warned that government must take an interest in the education and care of all children. Since parents have a Godgiven right to educate their children in schools of their choice, Archbishop Carroll said, all children are entitled to the same assistance from government in areas not dealing directly with religion, regardless of what schools they attend. The cost of educating all children e:ventually will have to be borne by state and federal governments, the archbishop contended, since this is the responsibility of government.

Prelate Stresses Relig'ion Need In Education
THE ANCHORThurs., April 17, 1969
Home Missioners To Relocate
LONDON (NC) - John Cardinal Heenan of Westminister said that with public morality on the wane the need for religion in schools is greater than ever. "Many honest citizens do not see why schools should cater for the children of Christians any more than for the children of vegetarians, nudists or humanists," the cardinal said in an article in the Times Educational Supplement, published by the Times, national newspaper. "It is significant that the battle against abortion was fought in Parliament mainly by members who had religious convictions. The next battle predicted at the time of the abortion debate will be over euthanasia. It is likely that those who received religious instruction in schools will once again come forward to defend the sanctity of human life against a pagan philosophy." The overwhelming majority of Catholic parents want to preserve Catholic schools within the national system, he added. "This is impressive because despite generous grants, the building of schools and training colleges (for teachers) is by far the greatest of the financial burdens resting on parishes. Why do these parents so insistently demand Catholic schools for their children? Extension of Home "The chief reason is that Catholics tend to be traditionalists and still regard the teacher as being in loco parentis. The school is thought of as an extension of the home where education begins. "All good parents, believers and non-believers, want what is best for their children. That I think is why even the irreligious usually like their children to learn about God. Their attitude to religion is often expressed in this way: 'I don't want to go to church myself but I like to see the children go,' They regard religion as a good thing and want their children to have it," The humanists, the cardinal said, object not to religious education but to compulsory religious instruction: "Compulsory is another of those words which tend to be emotive in religious context," he added. "It is, of. course, a quibble to contend that in the school syllabus religious instruction alone is a compulsory subject. In primary schools almost every subject is in fact compulsory. The Department of Education and Science would not tolerate a school in which the three R's (reading-writing-arithmetic) were optional."

"Even though they're hung up on their own problems, they want to help," Dr. Abernathy said. "The students at Georgetown would have followed me anywhere - I could have led them to jail or to the Capitol 01' into the Potomac,"

Asserts CO Decision May Boomerang Draft Head S'ees Eve rybody In, Not Out LANSING (NC) - Lt. Gen. Lewis B. Hershey, Selective Service director, said here conscientious objectors, who believe they got a break from a Federal Court decision striking down parts of the draft law, could be badly mistaken. Hershey said if the U.S. Supreme Court upholds the ruling, it could end the granting of all deferments on religious or moral grounds. "Some people interpret this decision as meaning everyone claiming C.O. classification could be out of the draft," Hershey told a news conference. "Well, I'm not a lawyer, but I interpret it to mean everyone would be in . . . because there would be no provision in the law for granting a C.O. deferment." Hershey said he "read very closely" the decision of U.S. District Judge Edward Wyzanski of Boston, in the case of John Sisson, Jr., a Harvard University graduate. The judge, in setting aside Sisson's conviction, ruled the draft law is biased in favor of men who are religious and discriminates against atheists and agnostics. Hershey said the judge did not
suggest the government could not require conscientious objectors to fight, or draft them for noncombat service. Hershey, who came here to ad· dress a meeting of lawyers, architects, doctors and other profes-

Speaking on the French national broadcasting system, Fr.

Father Danielou said: "It is not because I am French that I was chosen, but because I am a theologian. "

sional people, said he might get "scolded" for suggesting that Wyzanski's decision would end C.O. deferments. "But the way I read it, if you take this out of the law, which you do when you say it is unconstitutional, there's no provision that gives any consideration to anyone who conscientiously objects," he said. "And to my way ··of thinking, that puts everbody in, not everybody out,"
Housing Association Formed in Portugal LISBON (NC) - The Portuguese Caritas, Catholic charities organization, together with the Catholic Union of Industrialists and Owners, has formed a housing association (PRODAC) for those who wish to build their own homes.

CINCINNATI (NC)-The Glenmary Home Missioners have sold the grounds and buildings of Our Lady of the Fields Seminary in suburban Springdale for an undisclosed amount and will relocate their national headquarters two miles north of the present site. Brune-Harpenau-Torbeck Builders, Inc. purchased the 140-acre tract, describing the transaction as a "multi-million-dolIar acquisition." Robert Harpenau, board chairman of the Cincinnati firm, said the land would be developed for commercial, office and multiple apartment structures. The main seminary building, a Georgian-Colonal style structure begun in 1950 and completed in 1962, will be used for a convalescent hospital or nursfng home, he announced. Father Robert C. Berson, superior general of the Glenmary Home Missioners, said the decision to sell the property was based on "economic reasons," Father Berson explained "our purpose remains, as always, to aid in the social and economic plight of rural Americans, mainly in Appalachia and the deep South,"
Foresee $3 Million High School Deficit NEWARK (NC) - A deficit of about $3 million in the operation of the Newark archdiocesan regional high school system is being projected for the 1969-70 school year by school officials. This was revealed in the wake of an agreement on salaries and tenure with the Association of Regional Secondary School Teachers. The settlement, it was said, will cost the archdiocese about $500,000. Currently, school officials said, the 11 schools in the regional system are operating at a deficit of $2.3 million a year. However, two more schools will be added to the regional system next Fall, being converted from parish high schools. The expected losses there, coupled with the $500,000 agreement with the teachers, will push the deficit up around the $3 million level.

Against Firing Ex-Priests, Nuns
It Works An official of a fund-raising firm once commented that the way the annual Catholic Charities Appeal is conducted in the Fall River Diocese is all wrong except for one fact - it works. He mentioned that many such appeals try high-pressure tactics on a, relative few persons whom they have chosen ~s likely gift-givers. The Fall River diocesan Appeal contacts every person and should not work as well - but it does. He did not consider, of course, that this Appeal has a difference thate.makes the difference - it involves every person with the 'needs of his neighbor. It speaks in the name of charity. It holds out as much benefit for those who give as for those who receive. It gives the opportunity to live out the words of Christ who said that help to one's neighbor in need is aid given to Him. It is all as simple and as profound as that. If people believe in the Gospels of Christ, they feel the necessity of giving of what they have to help those who have even less. If people believe that Christ lives in them and in their neighbors, then the Christ in them must reach out to the Christ in others. The basis of the diocesan Catholic Charities Appeal could be an appeal to the exceptional value received for, each dollar giyen to the Appeal. It could be to the economic impact that ag~ncies helped by the Appeal make on a community. It could be to the valuable sociological concept that charity should not be merely a governmental concern but one of individuals. It could be all these things. But, in fact, the basis for the Appeal is simply Christ-like charity. And it works. .
The Holy Father has asked the bishops of the world to speak out on the positive values involvedjn voluntary, celibacy - in the decision made by mat\-Ife n,el} to forego thdrown families so that in this ascetic context they might the better be members of all families and give to all men the day-by-day proof of a living commitment to God and to the Church and to the service of men. At a meeting of the National Federation of Priests Councils in New Orleans a few weeks ago, President Father Patrick O'Malley' also spoke on the positive aspects of celibacy. It is unfortunate that his remarks to the meeting Qjd not receive the publicity given so often to his remarks in press interviews. Just recently almost nineteen hundred priests in West Germany issued a statement on the vallie of priestly celibacy but this was largely ignored by most of the press, Catholic and secular. It could well be that Churchmen have not presented a good case for celibacy in the priesthood. They have not stressed the ascetic dimension which is surely a great and valid aspect of the matter. Perhaps many will not understand, this spiritual side. But all must accept that such a sacrifice 'and such a commitment prove the sincerity of 'the priestly life and the unwavering devotion of the priest, whose vocation is not merely a function but a state in life, a witness to Christ, a preaching of. the things of God by action as well as in word.

'BELLEVILLE (NC) - Bishop ,Albert R. Zuroweste of Belleville, has appointed a five-priest committee to investigate "problems" and possible solutions" in Cairo, where a Catholic priest has accused a "vigilante" organization of intimidating local blacks. The charge has been made by Father Gerald Montroy, whom Bishop Zuroweste named last August to work among the poor living in what was formerly St. Columba's parish in Cairo. The all-Negro parish, which was closed in June 1968, has been integrated with St. Patrick's parish, the only city Catholic parish. About 40 per cent of Cairo's 7,500 population is Negro, Father Montroy has charged' that a group of about 600 white rilen known as the White Hats used police dogs, a display of arms and periodic drills to keep

"Father Montroy has stri'ven to inaugurate * * * worthwhile programs," the Bishop noted. "While his success has been limited, his sincerity cannot be questioned. Some of his methods have disturbed the white citizenry and while we do not agree with all of Father Montroy's methods, we support his efforts to obtain justice for all." "Misunderstandings may arise, tensions may be created in this endeavor, but we are confident that just solutions will be found by sincere and persevering effort on the part of everyone," Bishop Zuroweste stated.

olic colleges and universities could harm the church-related colleges efforts to secure federal assistance funds. Father Charles Whelan, S.J" of Fordham University, said the opponents of aid to church-related institutions may try to -f:ite . suc~ instances as evidence that the institutions insist on special religious requirements from their faculties and that such ~'religiOus discrimination" disqualifies them from public funds. Father Whelan's observations were made' duririg a session of the 66th annual convention of the National Catholic Educational Association here. He advised the Catholic college and university administrators in the audience against exempting non-Catholic students from reo Iigion courses. Such exemptions might be interpreted as evidence that the courses are not so much academic in nature 'as vehicles for propagating the Catholic faith, he said. Connecticut Cases Father Whelan noted that dispositions are scheduled to begin in a case involving four Catholic colleges in Connecticut. The plaintiffs in the case are a group of Connecticut residents who . claim the church-related institutions should be denied grants obtained under the Higher Education Facilities Act. He said counsel for the plain· tiffs is eXPl:cted to c1ailJl, either tliat. the colleges involved propagate the Catholic religion or that they discriminate in regard to faculties or students. Famed trial lawyer Edward Bennett WilIiams will represent the Catholic colleges, with Father Whelan and other lawyers assisting him, The case is expected to go the Supreme Court ,by Summer or early fall. Father Whelan asked his audio ence to provide him with information on how widespread the practice of dismissing former priests and Sisters from Catholic coIleges has become, indicating the data might be useful information for the defense should the plaintiffs take the approach of "religious discrimination."

there is a growing awareness among the non-Catholic sector of the need to help parochial and other private schools, and that Catholic school officials must be willing to make a public accounting of their financial records. These were the chief themes emerging from a meeting of diocesan coordinators of government aid programs sponsored here by the Uni~ed States Catholic Conference (NSCC) Division of Elementary and Secondary Education. The meeting was held in conjunction with the annual convention of the National Catholic Educational Association. Bishop Joseph L. Bernardin, USCC general secretary, in keynoting the NCEA convention, also called for a complete public accounting of Catholic schools. He said the Catholic people who support these schools, have ,a right to this information and the general public also will expect it if they are to contribute to the nonpublic schools. Lack Hard Data There was praise and widespread interest in Bishop Bernardin's suggestion here. But several participants also said it will be a difficult suggestion to implement because many Catholic administrators lack hard data on the financial operations of their school systems. The NCEA is currently conducting a feasibility study on gathering Catholic school financial data on a grant from the Carnegie Foundation. Panelists at the diocesan coordinators meeting were Raymond A. Allen, Jr., administrative aide for state and federally funded programs, archdiocese of Hartford; Vincent W. Decoursey, executive director, Kansas Catholic Conference; John L. Gaffney, director of education, Michigan Catholic Conference; Anthony Hiesberger, executive director, Missouri Catholic Conference; James J. Miller, director of government programs, diocese of Cleveland. Rep. J. Bob Traxler, a non-Catholic who is one of Michigan's biggest boosters for aid to non public schools, was also a panel member. Chances for passage of major non public school legislation in Connecticut and Michigan were rated generally favorable by Allen and Gaffney, although neither would make a flat prediction. Auxiliary Services The panelists discussed existing non public school aid legislation, such as the school bus and auxiliary services program in Ohio, Michigan and' elsewhere,
Former Benedictine Marries in Spain BONN (NC) - Former Abbot Alkuin Heising of the Siegburg Benedictine monastery near here has married a teacher in Seville, Spain.

The bride was identified as Maria Veit, a teacher at a German school in Seville.
Hiesberger of Missou:-i and Decou'fsey of Kansas. "In our little state we're not even able to get bills reported out of committee," Decoursey said. The state of Kansas is only 10 per cent Catholic and only eight per cent of the students in the state are educated in Catholic schools, a vastly different story from largely urban dioceses such as those located';n states like Connecticut and New York. Virtually all participants at the meeting agreed that existing auxiliary services provided by states and even some federal benefits accruing from the Elementary and SecoQdary Education Act of 1965 have not come close to solving the financial problems of the non public school sector. Salaries Problem "The heart of the problem is teacher salaries," James Miller stated. He said the Catholic Conference of Ohio is aiming for a $1,200 per teacher supplement from the state legislature. The NCEA research office estimated here that the total current operating cost of the Catholinc elementary and secondary schools of the United States this year is $1.7 billion, or approximately $340 for each of the five million pupils enrolled. The latest comparable perpupil cost figure for public schools is $625 per pupil. The largest single factor in the cost difference, NCEA said, is the contributed services of 100,000 Religious teachers, estimated at half a billion dollars. If this were added, the Catholic per pupil cost figure would rise to $440 yearly. The fact that Catholic school pupils buy their own textbooks and supplies, which are provided free in the public schools, also keeps the Catholic figure down. A less expensive administrative superstructure, and the willingness of lay teachers to work in the private sector for approximately 90 to 95 per cent of the public school scale are other major factors in the lower Catholic school cost.
Lifts Restri~tions On DominiclDIn PARIS (NC)-Restrictions imposed on Dominican Father Jean Cardonnel in January have been lifted. The restrictions were imposed after the priest expressed certain revolutionary ideas in Lenten sermons last year. In one of the sermons Father Cardonnel said that a true Lent "would be a general strike that would block the mechanisms of the profitseeking society." Several weeks later, a general strike took place throughout France. The priest has also claimed that violence is ,admissible in certain unjust situations and that the Church should renounce its material wealth. Cardinal-designate Archbishop Francois Marty of Paris lifted his ban on Father Cardonnel speaking publicly in the Parish archdiocese, but at the same time specified that when the priest speaks publicly he must do so in his own name.
NEW YORK (NC)-A request that the bishops of the country consider "having at least one Latin Mass daily" in every church in the U.S. has been made by the board of directors of Una Voce in the United States, which has headquarters here. , John A.

Gypsy Styles, Quilted Skirts To Join Fashion Parade . my Marilyn Roderick "And when you wear those golden earrings," may well be the theme song of some of the designers this season as they parade their gypsy fashions.

An offshoot of the s e gypsy fashions is the mad run on quilts. Again, members of the jet set are buying them up like crazy and having their faithful little dressmakers whip them up into long, fascinating evening skirts. I priced a couple of quilts recently in an antique shop and found that a handmade one cost about $25 while a machine-made one is about $15. Of course we peons must add the cost of the路 little seamstress, thus making these evening skirts quite expensive for meagre clothing budgets;' Nice as Spreads . Another factor that would keep me from having a long skirt made out of a quilt is the fact that I think they make just beautiful bed spreads and I wouldn't want to waste their beauty on a seldom worn (at least in my social circles) evening skirt.' For those of us with a practical bent, however, fabric designers will be the answer to the quilt craze; for I'm sure when they find that this type of fabric design is in demand they'll fake it, and then only your little seamstress (yourself) will know for sure. Hand in hand with this Romany revival is another source of a new inspiration for Fall clothes called "Art Deco." This inspiration had its beginning in London and comes from the period between 1910 and 1920. The movie about Isadora Duncan's life may have started the fascination with this period in history when clothing was as

Balanced Designs Both the gypsy phase and the Art Deco craze will be felt most heavily in the fabric designs for Summer and Fall. Gay small prints, bright colors' and materials that lend themselves well to the full skirts of these designs will be found at all your favorite fabric centers. Symmetrical or balanced designs will play an important part in the printed cloth designs that are used in the Art Deco clothes. Some of these designs will be woven into the fabric while others will be printed on the ,surface. Whichever type you choose, they will lend themselves to patterns of simple form and detail where beauty of fabric can really shine.

The board also resolved to urge church women to organize small task forces in every Congressional district, cooperating with other women's groups; to study their congressman's records; to be prepared to speak out on issues, and to act at strategic moments in "the most politically astute ways possible."

TOKYO (NC)-The only U. S. citizen among 85 foreigners honored recently by the Japanese government was Sister Mary Eugenia Laker of the School Sisters of Notre Dame. Sister Eugenia is currently president of Notre Dame Women's College in Kyoto. At an award ceremony here, she received the Order of the Sacred Treasure, Fourth Class, from Minister. of Education Michita Sakata for her contribution to education in Japan. A native of St. Louis, Mo., Sister Eugenia joined the School Sisters of Notre Dame -there. She studied at路 St. Louis University, until 1940, when she was named and was on the faculty of Notre
Dame Junior College in St. Louis superior of a convent in Baton Rouge, La. In 1948 she came to Japan to initiate the work of the Notre Dame Sisters here, the first foreign mission undertaking of their St. Louis province. In Japan today are 18 U. S. Sisters from that province and 78 Japanese Sisters in eight convents. Their works include schools in Kyoto, from elementary school through college; an international school in Okinawa, teaching at the Divine Word Fathers' Nanzan University in Nagoya; and catechetical work in parishes.

Dwarf Greens Good Choice For Northern Exposure
By Joseph and Marilyn Roderiek
Affirms Loyalty To Holy Father LOS ANGELES (NC)-The Los Angeles Regional Senatus of the Legion of Mary has sent a telegram to the National Conference of Catholic Bishops affirming members' "complete support of the teachings of the vicar of Christ." The senatus represents Legion of Mary units in California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah and Hawaii. The telegram said: "We believe that the Church speaks authoritatively through the magisterium, her teaching is binding in conscience on all Catholics, as reaffirmed by the 'dogmatic Constitution on the Church, promulgated by the Second Vatican Council. "We therefore wish to affirm our unshakeable loyalty to the pope, and thus to the Church, and thus to Christ, by declaring our assent to the teachings of the Holy Father and to every truth that is taught by our Divine Lord through the magisterium."
We have just sent a small order to one of the mail order houses for two dwarf evergreens for the north side of our house. We have a small strip of garden two feet wide and 30 feet long between the house and a brick walk. This has always presented a problem and we have de- turbances most of the time, but of course there are always excided to handle it by putting ceptional Sundays. in a garden of dwarf everOne such took place a few greens and low growing azaleas. These evergreens are not inexpensive but they are not as costly as the larger greens. The term dwarf may be misleading because these small greens may grow to larger sizes, but on the whole they are much smaller than the common species. In order to keep them small (no more than two feet high), they may have to be planted in small crevices between rocks to restrict their root growth or they may have to be root-pruned. Root pruning is just a matter of cutting back, some of the horizontal roots from time to time to keep the nourishment available to the plant at a minimum. Slow and Steady At the present time we have two dwarf greens and have just ordered the two more we mentioned. Four such plants will hardly fill up the required space but we are firm believers in building a garden by bits and pieces rather than in one big step. At the rate we are going, it may be a few years before the strip of garden in question looks like very much but in the meantime we plan to fill in the spaces with tuberous begonias and the baby greens we hav.e started at various times during the years. The north side of the house is always a problem because of course it gets very little sun. A garden of greens is a perfect solution because even in Winter it retains some color, especially if one has the foresight to plant greens that turn colors during the Winter. Such a garden takes very little care and is readily kept in bounds, since dwarf greens will never become too much of a problem in terms of taking up a great deal of space. The azaleas for this garden are another matter and must be chosen with care. They too, can ke kept in bounds by judicious pruning, however, and although I would prefer to let them grow naturally, they are controllable. In the Kitchen It's bright and sunny outside with just a hint of the balmy days to come. The first daffodils are peeping from their light green covers and I feel it's the perfect time to rid the soul of a few complaints and start the slate anew. One of my readers requested that I write a column about children who are allowed to go to Mass without an adult each Sunday and spend the entire 35 or 40 minutes entertaining their peers to the consternation of all those around them. One group so distracted and aggravated this reader that she declared she had to say' quite a few Acts of Contrition before she' felt she could go to the altar in a Christian frame of mind. I must agree with her that no matter how good our intentions or how hard we try to ignore such distractions, we are in truth only human and our mind tends to pay more attention to them than to the word of God being read from the altar. Fortunately for us, the Mass we attend is quite free from annoying dis-

Michigan Bishops Urge Speedy Aid For Sch~ols LAN SIN G (NC) - The Michigan Catholic Conference has urged the state legislature to take fast action on "the critical problems facing public and nonpublic education in Michigan." The MCC urged Gov. William C. Milliken and the legislature to act now rather than await the results of a study committee next fall .. The statement came in response to Gov. Milliken's recent message to the legislature in which he called for "restraint and reform" and suggested holding to recommended spending levels until his committee can come up with proposals to revamp the entire educational system. The MCC said the problems are too acute to await the slow process of study committee and action. The MCC statement issued here was signed by CardinalDesignate John F. Dearden of Detroit, the other Michigan bishops and Catholic lay leaders. Its publication coincided with the opening here of the 66th annual convention of the National Catholic Educational Association, attended by some 12,000 Catholic teachers and administrators from throughout the country. Critical Problem The MCC also asked for state tax support of nonpublic schools. "We are committed to the goal of transforming. all of our schools, both inner-city and suburban, public and private, into institutions of academic excellence and centers of dignity and hope," the statement said. "We urge the Governor and the legislature to act now to solve the critical problem facing public and nonpublic education in Michigan," it added. The legislature is now considering a bill which would provide up to $40 mi4ion in indirect state aid to nonpublic schools. Gov. Milliken has said he would be in favor of such a bill provided it encounters no constitutional obstacles and the legislature can come up with sufficient funds. The MCC statement said: Public Service "Catholic eduaction in Michigan has a long history of preparing young people to live the full life of a responsible citizen. "The development of the Catholic school system has been and continues to be an immense public service to the people of Michigan." The MCC quoted from an earlier statement in which it urged Catholics and. others to give strong support to public schools, including financial help as well as "interest and concern." "Parents who exercise their civil right to send their children to parochial schools are not freed of the obligation' of the entire citizenry to supp'ort public education, "the statement said. Now, however, "we . . . express our equal concern for the needs of children attending all nonpublic schools in Michigan," the MCC said in its latest statement. "These schools have made substantial contributions to the public welfare," in the education field, the statement continued.

Religious Teachers ito Form Assoc·iation f~ar
Loss of Voice
DETROIT (NC) - Representatives of 17 different religious communities teaching in the Philadelphia area plan to form an association which "will demand to sit a( the bargaining table" when negotiations are held between archdiocesan officials and lay teachers in the Catholic schools. "We don't intend to stand by and watch while lay· teachers wrest control * * * and our rights are given away wholesale or nibbled away," said Father Joseph F. Lynn, O.S.F.S., director of .education for the Eastern Province of the Oblates of St. Francis De Sales. Father Lynn said the Religious teachers have notified John Cardinal Krol of Philadelphia of their intention to organize to protect their rights and anticipate his approval for their efforts. Lay teachers in the Philadelphia archdiocese have been organized for several years. They won a lengthy battle for recognition from archdiocesan officials and gained a pay increase two years ago after threatening an extended strike. Father Lynn made it plain, however, that monetary considerations are not behind the movement to organize Religious

teachers. The Religious are concerned rather, that a growing power on the part of lay teacher organizations in Philadelphia and elsewhere may deprive the Religious of any voice in the administration and educational policy of the schools, he said. Share Control . Most Religious superiors want to "share" control with laymen, he said, but not to. forfeit all rights of their own in the process. Father Lynn's comments were made here at a session of the 66th annual National -Catholic Educational Association conven·tion.

SOUTH BEND (NC)-"Project Commitment," an experiment in an interfaith approach to human relations problems, has begun here with 34 churches and synagogues participating. "Project Commitment" was first put into practice by the Detroit archdiocese about three years ago, according to James P. Danehy, University of Notre Dame chemistry professor and project chairman. After Detroit, the program was tried in a few other cities under Catholic auspices, but the South Bend project is the first attempted anywhere on an interfaith basis, said Danehy who also chairs the South BendFort Wayne diocesan human relations commission. "PC is an attempt to take white people who have not yet developed convictions concerning their responsibilities for interracial and interreligious justice, and to give them the motivation to go back to their congregations and parishes and change prejudicial social patterns," Danehy said. PC is a series of eignt consecutive weekly meetings, attended by up to 20 representatives of selected area Catholic, Protestant and Jewish congregations who have been chosen by pastors, rabbis or lay boards for their leadership potential. At each meeting an expert speaks on some phase of community life in which racial attitudes play a role and a discussion period follows.

Saginaw .Diocese Studie:; D~strict School Plan
Protestors Burn Cross at Shrine
SAGINAW (NC)-Should a Catholic school be a district rather than a parish responsibility? That's the question under current consideration by the Saginaw Diocesan Board of Education. Purpose of the district plan would be to achieve a more equitable basis of financial support and control, and a more efficient and effective use of educational resources. It recognizes the need for some kind of local or area educational authority to engage in necessary educational planning and organization. Father Olin J. Murdick. diocesan superintendent of education. said the district responsibility concept is "based on the be-· lief that Catholic education is the responsibility of the total Catholic community, not just those families or those parishes which have historically sought to provide it. "Hopefully. this principle will receive the recognition and support it des~rves. The future of Catholic education depends upon it." Need, Feasibility Formation of a Catholic school district would be contingent upon an area study of need and feasibility. It would require approval of the bishop and of Catholics in parishes of the area. Under the plan: All parishes located within the defined service or attendance area would belong to the district. This would include even those parishes which have not had direct responsibility for operating a school, even those whose parishioners now have not utHized to any extent the school of an': other parish. The educational poliCies and programs of the district would be defined by a district board of education and administered by a district superintendent who would be responsible to the dis-' trict board and to the diocesan superintendent of education. All parishes of the district would have equal right to participate in the educational opportunities provided. The exercise of this right would be based on an equitable formula of enrollment distribution as determined by the district board of education. Every parish. as a constituent member of the district, would be responsible according to an equitable formula established by the district board, for subsidizing the educational programs of the district.
Commission lFavors freeze on Loans SPOKANE (NC)-The Spokane diocesan finance commission has recommended to Bishop Bernard J. Topel of Spokane that no more major building projects be undertaken at this time. The commission noted that all monies in the diocesan revolving fund are already committed. A total of $550.000 has been loaned in recent months from the revolving fund, made possible by the annual diocesan development fund. the commission said. But because both the total amounts pledged and the total actual dollars received by the diocesan development fund have diminished in recent years, the commission said it is necessary to delay new projects which reo quire loans to parishes and other diocesan institutions.

"This is what I would ask of the nation, and specifically of Roman Catholics, of Christians and of religious people, Jews and others, in this nation, that we would continue and not just throw up our hands and say, well, we'll give up," he asserted. When asked whether the Church's program is being opposed by communists, the prelate said: "The question of communism really isn't the agonizing question. I would say the question of laissez-faire, of 'I don't care' on the part of Christians is much more of a problem than of opposition from communists." Role of Church Msgr. Bordelon said the Division of World Justice and Peace deals with the condition of the world, of man, and what might be the response of the Church. He said he believes that, although governments and secular agencies are also concerned about the condition of man, the Church has a particular role to play.
Benedictine Oblates To Meet Saturday A chapter meeting of the Oblates of St. Benedict will be held at Portsmouth Priory on Saturday, April 19. A 4 o'clock afternoon Mass will be followed by a conference with dinner at 6. Mrs. Frank Moriarty of 212 Massachusetts Avenue, Somerset, is in charge of arrangements..Reservations should be made with the Priory.
"I think the role of the Church is primarily to form consciences, to form a public conscience with regard to the condition of man," he said. "It's a constant battle to push the limits of our interest and concern wider and wider, to take in the poor of this country and the poor of the world." Msgr. Bordelon believes it is the chief task of the Church to continue to remind people that half the human family is hungry, sick, underdeveloped. He said that while the mathematical statistics are not necessarily accurate, they may be rounded out. Very Tough "The situation is so frightful that give or take some error, we know that the condition of man is very, very tough at the present time, very, very, poor," he declared. Despite attempting to awaken people's consciences, these problems must be solved on economic
India Collects Data On Missionaries NEW DELHI (NC) - India's minister of state for home affairs has stated that the government is collecting information on foreign missionaries who reportedly indulge in "anti-social activities." In reply to questions by a group of nine members of parliament, Vidya Charan Shukla told the lower house here that data is also being collected on the number of schools, colleges and charitable institutions run by missionaries. Shukla said details of the complaints against missionaries, the action taken against them, the number of new foreign missionaries permitted to come to India and those who have been allowed to continue their stay are also being gathered. Shukla also stated that foreign missionaries in the country received a total of $16 million as "private donations" in 1965, $91 million in 1966 and $82 million in 1987.
realities, Msgr. Bordelon stated. The role of the Church fs not to merely increase the amount allocated by the U. S. to foreign aid, but rather to recognize the imbalance of' funds used for aid compared to that spent on armaments, for example, he said. One of the arguments against increasing foreign aid is that the recipient nations don't appreciate the gifts sufficiently. But, he pointed out that aid has often been an instrument of U. S. foreign policy. "Even if people are not sufficiently grateful, that does not impugn our own responsipility to continue to help them, hoping all the while that, sure, they will be grateful, too," he asserted. The question of efficiency also complicates the problem, he added. "But we want to look into questions of longer-range trade policies," so that more and more, international justice would be the goal.

WASHINGTON (NC)-A black Christ figure on an eight-foot cross, covered with homemade napalm and gasoline, was burned on the steps of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception here by a group of antiVietnam war protestors. The demonstration was a "protest to the lack of moral leadership" in society and in the Catholic Church, according to Joseph Coleman, who said he was a part time janitor in a religious house. By burning the paper Christ figure, Coleman said, "we want to signify how Christ in man is being corporally crucified in Vietnam-to mention one place-and is being spiritually suppressed within us here at home." In a driving rain that made it necessary for the protestors to keep setting fire to the figure, Coleman added that the demQnstration also honored Martin Luther King - "a man who did speak out." He urged the Church to "voice full support" for antiwar protestors like those who entered the Dow Chemical Company building her~ recently. Inside the shrine, several hundred persons were attending services. Small groups of worshipers left by the front entrances and saw the demonstration, but most went out by the side exits. The demonstrators distributed copies of Coleman's statement in the Church. . After an hour of singing and reading of statements, the demonstrators took down the cross. cleaned up their mess and left.

Welf~re recipients now get a minimum of 90 per cent of the amount judged to be the minimum required for a decent living standard in 1957.

Fast to Support Farm Laborers
NEW ORLEANS (NC) -
DENVER (NC) - A miniature Resurrection City was erected on the lawns of Immaculate Conception cathedral here during Holy Week to call attention to three bills before the Colorado legislature that would improve the lot of farm workers in the state. Nine members of a group called Denver Witnesses for Human Dignity fasted for the week, taking only water until Easter. The fast was their attempt to call attention to what they believe are long neglected conditions of Colorado farm labore~. Bill Miller, one of the fasters, said the Denver Witnesses feel a great urgency to make some improvements in the laborers' plight.路 He admitted, however, that there is little support in the House Labor and Employment Relations Committee for the three bills and little possibility of the bills even getting on the committee agenda.
A priest advocated here that marketing techniques used by. commercial advertisers
be adopted by preachers to sell Christianity. Speaking at the 12th annual Christian Preaching Conferenc~ meeting, Father Donald F. X. Connolly, coordinator of the National Catholic OffiCe of Radio and Television, New York, said "priests have to be aware of market value and audience response, especially to reach young people." Father Connolly explained: "You don't have to repeat the theme 18 times and then draw a moral. Young people get the message right away." In al} age of change, he said, essentials are the most impor- . tanto It is necessary to establish ORGANIZE SCHOOL BOARD: Parishioners at St. Joseph's Church, Fall River, listen to explanpriorities in identifying the main product, Christianity, he stated. ation of parish school board functioning from Rodney De Cecco, seventh grade teacher at St. "After you decide which prod- Patrick's School, Fall Riveq Msgr.

HUE (NC) - A mass funeral held for 134 people- killed by the Viet Cong when they occupied part of this city during the Tet (lunar new year) offensive in February, 1968. A South Vietnamese soldier on patrol accidentally discovered the mass graves in March when路 he saw a wire sticking out of the ground. At first, he thought he had found a booby trap. Instead, when he scraped away the earth he found the wire wrapped around the hands of an old man. Since the first discovery the last week of March, 134 bodies have been found. Some were shot in the head, some clubbed to death and some were unmarked, leading to the suspicion that they were buried 'alive. Over 5,000 people attended the mass burial service.

BUFFALO (NC)-The Buffalo diocese has estimated its 21 high schools will end the 196869 school year $186,000 in the red and by the end of 1969-70 school year, will have a $1.2 million deficit. "No high school is in danger of closing," stressed Raymond J. Forton, diocesan director of secondary education. He said state aid is "the only realistic solution" to the problem and Catholic .~chool leaders are seeking assistance amounting to about $100 a pupil. "The question the state legislature must face is whether they want the Catholic schools to close down and force the public to accept a tremendous increase in property taxes, or give the Catholic schools modest help so they can survive," Forton sai~.

Advises Liberal Journalis;t Listen to Fr. Bouyer, Wan By Msgr. George G. Higgins Director, Division of Urban lLife, U.S.C.C.
Some travelers who unexpectedly find themselves with extra time on their hands in foreign cities, go in rather frantical,ly for bargain-hunting in the local emporia-most of the time a rather fruitless exercise, I should think, in this age of almost universal inflation. Others, Council - in all lan~uages," of either been pUbgoing far beyond the call course-have lished or at least contracted for of duty-and with no regard since 1965. It is my off-hand im-
for their own comfort-manfully take on another round of sightseeing. S til I others, I suppose, are content to go back to their hotel and try to catch up on their sleep. Every man to his own taste. This traveler's favorite way of filling up his leisure hours when he is on the road is to make the rounds of all the. book stores. I have been doing this' with a vengence during the past few weeks in several European cities and notably in Rome, and have come away from the experience with several random and admittedly unscientific impressions which mayor may not, be of interest to anyone else. My first impression is that books are at least as expensive in Europe as they 'are in the United States. And yet there are just as many bookstores-and aparently just as many books being sold, proportionately speaking - ' as in comparable cities at home. Marvelous Stores As a part-time student, of economics, I am at a loss to understand this phenomenon, given the fact that the standard of living in Rome and other European capitals is lower than our own, at least in monetary terms. In other words, I don't quite understand how it is possible for a city like Rome, for example, to keep so many bookstores going - and such marvelous stores at that. Perhaps the explanation is that the Romans have a different sense of values than we do and accordingly spend more of their income on books and less of it on other luxuries. Maybe so. Or is it possible that appearances are deceptive and that the number of books being sold in Rome ,is, in actual fact, much smaller than it would appear to be to the casual observer from overseas? About Vatican II I really don't know, but, in any event, I have had a picnic browsing around the Roman stores, many of which, by the way, now supplement their regular stock of Italian and French books with a surprisingly 'wide variety of English-language publications. The second impression I' have picked up in the course of visiting perhaps a dozen European (and especially Roman) bookstores in recent weeks is tliat almost every second or third per-' son in France and Italy seems to have written a book about Vatican Council II. I read somewhere not long ago that a minimum of 2,000 books and monographs about the
pression that this is a conserva-, tive figure. Volume Significant It goes without saying, of course, that the books being written about the Council in such great numbers are very uneven in quality and that so:ie of them are hardly worth the paper they are printed on. Nevertheless, the sheer volume of writings on the ·Council is not without significance. Surely no other Council in the history of the Church has been the subject of so much serious study and attention in such a brief period of time. It's interesting to note in this connection that even at this late date-almost a century after the event-there are only two or three English-language books about the First Vatican Council and not, many more than that in other languages. In this writer's opinion, the most valuable of all the many books which have been published thus far on various phases of Vatican II are those which tra1!e the origins and step-by-step development or evolution of the various Council documents. Second Thoughts This kind of meticulous record-keeping and scholarly exegesis, when done by bishops and periti who were in on the drafting of the Council documents from the word go and were responsible for editing the successive drafts, is a priceless contribution to the history of theology. The, third and final impression I have garnered from my casual sampling of the latest crop of books on Vatican II is that a number of so-called "liberae' or progressive commentators are having second thoughts about the way in which the so-called "liberal" or progressive wing of the press, Catholic and secular alike, covered the Council, and the way in which it is handling post-conciliar developments , in the life of the Church. In this connection, I am thinking of two recent books in particular, one in French and the other in English: "The Decomposition of Catholicism," by Father Louis Bouyer, a distinguished French theologian, and "Heading Into Change," the autobiography of Bernard Wall, an experienced British journalist and editor. Vainglorious Theologians Father Bouyer, who has taught at the University of N:otre Dame' for a number of years, is extremely critical of what he de- , scribes as the infantile naivete and sophistry of certain Catholic journalists and of the vainglorious theologians who are egging them on as they allegedly try to impose their view on the rest of the Church. Mr. Wall, who himself covered the Council as a working jour- " nalist, is more restrained, but equally pointed in his criticism of the :way in which the press in general reported the Council.

This final hearing was held in Federal Court here and the Cannonball's friends, mostly elderly women, were on hand early. They rallied behind Sister Ann Joachim, a 'Dominican nun who admits she is old enough for More specifically, he charges that the press "tended to treat debates in! St. Peter's as though they were debates in the American Congress or the French Assembly." He notes, in addition,,' that the press "divided up in the process," if only because of the fact that it was using these analogical terms very loosely and carelessly and hadn't bothered to define them with any degree of accuracy or care. ,Asks Respectful Hearing For my., own part, I am much more sympathetic to the press than either Father Bouyer or Mr. Wall. In fact; I happen to be, if anything, 'decidedly ,prejudiced in favor of the press.' , Nevertheless r think that those journalists who specialize on post-conciliar developmentsand especially those' reporters and editors who like to think of themselves as belonging to the avant garde-would be well advised to listen very carefully to what Bouyer and Wall are trying to tell them. Liberal members of the Fourth Estate have had a field day since the beginning of the Council telling the rest of the Church 'which end .is up. Now that other liberals in the Catholic community are beginning to pay them back in kind, they ought to give them a respectful hearing, for whatever it may be worth. It won't hurt them in the least and might even do them a certain amount of 'gOOd. Who knows?

Minutes later, Sister Ann asked Mrs. Sponhauer's husband, Alva ,why he insisted' on riding

Disturbed Catholics Desire 'R.enewal' Without Sacrificing Basic Truths TOROt'/TO (NC) - There are many Catholics who do not agree with all the new trends and changes in the Church, "Christians for Renewal," a metropolitan Toronto group, declared in a 30-page brief sent to the Catholic bishops of Canada. And, the group adds, they would like to see preserved many of the traditional concepts and customs which are still very meaningful to large segments of the Catholic community. "In this age of many changes and turmoil in the Church," the brief states, "we wish to give voice to certain things which disturb us, and to try to keep a proper balance of attitude. We desire true 'renewal' without sacrificing basic truths." The document, signed by 154 persons, covers a wide range of topics, including liturgy, prayer, catechetics, holiness of priests, ecclesiastical luxury, Sisters, 'contemplative life, ecumenism and conversion, Humanae Vitae, world food and overpopulation, birthright l!-nd abortion.
Priests in Vermont Get Salary Boost BURLINGTON (NC)-Burlington diocese priests will receive salary increases and guaranteed minimum incomes. Bishop Robert F. Joyce said he believes the new salary schedule adequately meets the needs of the priests of the diocese. The schedule is subject to revision as necessary. 'It calls for an increase of more than 50 per cent in the guaranteed minimum income for assistant pastors and of 38 per cent for a pastor living alone.
The group asks the bishops to express in stronger terms "without ambiguity," their full accordance with Pope Paul VI's encyclical on birth control, and a statement clarifying "the true meaning of conscience." Latin Mass A few parishes in every diocese, the group declared, should provide a Latin Mass. Provision also should be made for the preservation of Gregorian chant. "Christians for Renewal" also said that, while realizing that the majority of priests and bishops are sensitive to any undue display of luxury, some Catholics are disturbed by those ecclesiastics "who drive the more expensive cars, take frequent vacations and brag about their color television sets." If it is necessary to have a married clergy, the group said, ordination should be conferred only on those already married. Otherwise, the ordinary state of the priest should be that of a celibate, the briefs adds. There should not be "a complete relaxing of. all discipline as is apparent in some orders of nuns," the brief says. It also points out that solitude is still important in regard to prayer.

TRENTON (NC) - A bill permitting silent prayer and meditation in New Jersey's public schools has been approved, 59-2, by the state Assembly. The measure, now before the Senate, is identical to one passed last year, but vetoed by Gov. Richard J. Hughes as unconstitutional. Sponsors admit the bill may not be in accord with a U. S. Supreme Court ruling against prayers in public schools. Gov. Hughes has indicated that if it is similar to the 1968 proposal, he will veto it too. The proposed legislation would permit a teacher, acting on his own discretion, or school boards, to set aside a period of silence at the start of the school day for silent prayer or meditafion. Assemblyman Albert S. Smith, believes it will be "a step toward getting religion back into the minds of our children. Prayer is permitted in th legislature and other places. Nobody has any second thoughts about it. Yet school children are deprived of it."

Regional High appears headed for another Capeway Conference baseball title, the attention of Cape Codders is focused upon the tremendous track success of Lawrence High of Falmouth, a perennial victor, not only in its own conference, but, also in Statewide competition. Meanwhile, golf and tennis annually are becoming more attractive to other boys in area schools within the' 90-squaremiles within the diocesan territorial limits. Coach Chuck Liberty has his work cut out in his first year at the Dennis-Yarmouth helm as he seeks to repeat last year's conference baseball championship. And, D-Y was co-titlist in '67, the year of the Impossible Dream.
romp to 13 triumphs in their 14 contests. Dennis-Yarmouth had a final three-game bulge over Lawrence of Falmouth in the final conference standing. Nothing would please the new regional mentor more than to see his stalwart mound trio turn-in an undefeated season in his first go at the, pennant. ' The strong arms upon which the Dolphins aspirations test are right handers Mike McCloskey, Kevin Kelleher and southpaw Steve McCormack. The new D-Y helmsman has veterans returning for five of the other eight positions. Baseball prospects at Lawrence in Falmouth are not as bright as Coach Jim Kalperis' track outl~ok this Spring.
Bleak Outlook fo'r Three Contenders The double-shift will hurt more in baseball than in track. In addition, Coach Joe Allietta has experienced health problems this Spring, causing his absence from practice, a loss the Clippers can ill afford. Allietta has done remarkably well when he has been physically fit to devote his entire attention to the diamond squad but indications are that his proteges will find it mighty hard to repeat last year's 10 victories in 14 games. Pitcher Pete Auger and catcher Tom Eldredge are the keymen returning at Barnstable which finished one game behind second place Falmouth last year. Mike and Bill Dacey and Charley Faria are three other veterans who form the nucleus for another strong Barnstable aggregation. Returning lettermen at Dartmouth High may lift that Bristol County club into the run-to-thewire in the Capeway Conference. Russ Gil and Rick Borges will be back to handle the mound duties for the first-year Coach Mike
Bobrowiecki who can look to several infield veteran~ as well as experienced outfield to improve upon last year's 5-8 record. Junior Wayne Hamlet will be playing his third season for the Indians, and, in a third position. A first baseman two years ago, Hamlet pitched last season. He is being groomed for the backstop ,spot this Spring. Other experienced players upon whom the first year mentor is counting, include first baseman Jay Regan, shortstop Paul Noonan and outfielder Joe Ormonde. Unless the prognosticators are wrong, Fairhaven, Bourne and Wareham 'are doomed for the second division in the final Capeway standing. Fairhaven has been especially hard hit by last June's graduation. This season's club will comprise mostly members of the '68 junior varsity. It will take more than good hitting for the Blue Devils to win. Pitching is the principal Fairhaven problem.
Offer Attractive Card in AU Sports Bourne is in exactly the same position as Fairhaven. Wareham has nowhere to go but up in order to improve upon last year's 1-13 record. Last year's combine comprised newcomers. Hence, more experience is available this time around, but, it is doubtful that Wareham will pose any serious threat to Dennis-Yarmouth as the latter seeks to repeat its title conquest. Capeway baseball is taking a leaf from the notebook of its other sports clubs tomorrow night when it stages its first jamboree. Participating in the
upper-Cape affair at Wareham will be Dartmouth, Fairhaven as well as Wareham. Old Rochester of Mattapoisett, formerly of the Capeway circuit and now a Narragansett League member, will be the fourth participant.

When Charlie Lang graduates this June it will mark the end of a brilliant allaround career at the University of Massachusetts. For four years the 2I-year old Lang has been an outstanding individual, whether on the athletic field or in the classroom. Charlie has made a lot of people proud with his dual accomplishments none the least of which is his mother, Mrs. Mary E. Lang of Middleboro. "Charlie has worked hard in everything he has ever done and I think it's noteworthy that he put himself through college completely on scholarships and Summer employment." Young Lang received an academic scholarship upon his graduation from Memorial High School in Middlelloro in 1965. He lived up to expectations by earning a spot on the dean's list. For four years Lang' was im outstanding long-distance runner on the Middies' track and cross country teams. He was a natural leader and served as captain of both sports. Charlie was a consistent winner in Old Colony League dual meets and was among the league's top individual performers. At college, Lang continued in his high school footsteps. He was an outstanding member of the Redmen's cross country team for three seasons and is currently wrapping up a fine track career. This season he was cocaptain ,of the cross-country squad.
Lang is the holder of the UMass course record in cross country and was the Yankee Conference indoQr~ ....:.. two-mile champion in track. Lang resides with his family at 32 Forest Street in Middleboro and is the oldest of six children. Mary-Beth, 20, is married, Terrance Michael, 17, is a junior at Memorial High, Susan Ellen, 13, is an eighth grade student at Berkland Junior High School and Scott 'Allen, 11, and Andrea Louise, 10" are. students at the School Street Elementary School. The Lang's are members of Sacred Heart Parish.
University Honors Astronaut Anders
In addition to his athletic prowess on the asphalt and cinder ovals, Charlie enjoys all other sports along with reading and building scale models. Upon graduation, the math major will enter the Air Force where he will be commissioned a second lieutenant. His post service plans are incomplete although he would like to further his education at a graduate school. Another outstanding athlete making headlines on the Amherst campus is Marc Lefever of New Bedford. The former New Bedford High graduate and son of John Lefever of RD # I, Grantville, Pennsylvania, is a member of the school's track team where he is listed as a high hurdler. Freshman coach Gary Schwartz has high hopes for the junior jumper who still holds three freshman records. As a sophomore last season, Lefever established a school mark in the 45-yard high hurdles with a time of 0.5:8 and Schwartz is looking for additional improvement. Lefebvre is a physical education major and hopes to go into a similar field upon graduation in 1970.
CINCINNATI (NC) - Lt. Col. William A. Anders, one of the Apollo 8 astronauts who circled the moon last December, has been presented Xavier University's St. Francis Xavier Medal. Father Paul L. O'Connor, S.J., Xavier president, made the presentation to Anders in absentia during the campus observance of the 17th annual Universal Communion Suriday of the Xavier Alumni Association. Anders was unable to attend the ceremony because he was on training duty at Cape Kennedy, Fla., preparing for the Apollo 11 flight. He is back-up man to astronaut Mike Collins for the flight scheduled to land on the moon in July.

Issue Statem<eln)fr 'On Reverence ST. LOUIS (NC)-Bishops of the four Missouri Sees have issued a statement concerning reverence. "Rever~ ence is inseparable from the practice of religion," they said. "In itself it is a virtue inclining one to satisfy an obligation of respect and is usually externalized by some gesture of due . .honor." They cited Scripture and Church tradition which teach and insist upon reverence toward . God, in holy places and at sacred functions. The Bishops have advised that care must' be exercised that attir:e and actions always manifest reverence. Demeanor Implications "This concern must be evidenced especially in liturgical pa!ticipation. The manner of administering and receiving the sacraments, especially the Eu-. charist, must reflect the interior reverence due these august experiences." " "Posture in acts of worship must meet accepted standards and express the reverence due to God. A careless or casual demeanor during solemn moments of sacred liturgy may suggest disdain and even implicit denial of faith," the Bis40ps noted.

COMPLETE PLANS FOR CeA: The Taunton Area Steering Committee has completed plans for the special gift phose and house-to-house campaign of the Catholic Charities Appeal. Serving on the Taunton committee路 are: Miss Adrienne lemieux, Matthew Bury, Mrs. Adstides Andrade, John Connors and Mrs. Mary Donohue.
Pope .Asks .Bishops Speak on Celibacy -Stresses Consequences of, Dissociation VATICAN CITY (NC) --.: Pope Paul VI has asked the world's bishops' conferences to speak out on the value of priestly celibacy and ch:iar up "an atmosphere of 'such, ill-omened uncertainty." A letter Pope Paul had sent in his name to the presidents of bishops' conferences declared: " "If we did not do all in our power to check the current hardening against priestJy celibacy, we would be guilty before God for its grievous consequences." The letter, which was dated
Feb. 2 and signed by Amleto Cardinal Cicognani, Papal Secretary of State, asked: "Have we realized what dissociating the priesthood from celibacy would mean for the Church? Have we truly measured the full extent of the upheaval this would bring not only in the priestly life but also in the life of the entire ecclesial community?, Responsibility of All "Lastly, have we reflected on all consequences路 which such a dissociation would have in every field - for the Church's life, for its spirituality and,
above all, for its pastoral activity, which must be really in keeping with the actual demands of the modern world? "In a word, have we sufficiently reflected on all that celibacy of the clergy means for the Church as well as for the world?" The letter asserted that the present "lessening of the estimation of priestly celibacy seriously and urgently' engages the responsibility of all 'whom the Holy Spirit has placed to rule His Church.''' (This 'scriptural quote was from Acts 20, 28.)
Q[J1J OTTAWA (NC)-The Canadian bishops are meeting here for the semi-annual meeting of the Canadian Catholic Conference. Workshops, commission, sector, provincial and regional meetings are being held by both English and French sectors. Among the items to be discussed at general assemblies are simplification of marriage procedures, a Canadian pastoral council, role of the priest today, follow-up to Humanae Vitae, program for seminaries, Canadian Secretariat for Non-believers, the Synod of Bishops, and national collections. The National Association of Catholics in Dialogue (NACD) has presented a brief to Bishop Alexander Carter, CC president, asking for early establishment of "an effectively functioning" nl1.tional pastoral council through_ formation of a pro tem council. A bishops' ad hoc committee, directed by CCC at last September's meeting to conduct a national pastoral council, will give its report at the CC meeting.
President Resigns HELENA (NC) - Msgr. Anthony M. Brown, president of Carroll College here in Mon-' tana for seven years, has resigned effective July 1 to become administrative vice-presi路 dent at the College of St. Thomas, St. Paul, Minn. Msgr. Brown had been affiliated with Carroll College for the past 16 years.
