The Vatican Council made another important lunge into history and into the realisation of the r,eforms urged by Pope John and Pope Paul, with the conclusions of two im­ portant commission meetings in Rome. The Coordinating Commission which is to supervise the inter-session work, streamlined the debate arrangements so as to speed up Council work and make it more effective.

Its work was made public in a Council Press communique. The Liturgical Commission began its task of reviewing the Bishops'- Regional Conferences' proposals and it started to lay the foundation for the long-range reforms asked by the Council Fathers. Its work was made public in an in­ terview by Archbishop Guilford Young of Hobart, Australia, a commission member. '

Cites Laymen's Grave Du'ty To Unity

Says Rights Bill Indicts Society WHEELING (NC) - Bishop Jcseph H. Hodges of Wheeling said here that "it is an indict­ ment of our social order that the government must resort to pub­ lic legislation to guarantee the rights of a citizen." Bishop Hodges asserts in the West Virginia Register, news­ paper of the diocese, that while support of the legislation before the U.S" Senate is needed, it is regrettable "that a civil rights bill is necessary." Bishop Hodges said the bill deals "with the fundamental rights of a large segment of our population - rights that have have come from Almighty God, our Creator." Divine, Human Justice "Anyone who denies a man fhese rights violates the law of God and affronts the dignity of the persons injured. Divine and human justice are at stake," he said.. "It is an indictment of our social order that the government must resort to pUblic legislation to guarantee the rights of a citizen. It is an even more shameful indictment of Chris­ tianity and religion in general that we who profess a belief in God or Christ fail nGt only to treat our fellow men with char­ ity but even to grant him ele­ mentary justice," he said.

The German Cardinal, who heads the secretariat for Pro­ moting Christian Unity ad­ dressed a conference on the sub­ ject of "What the Unity of Christians Expects from Lay­ men." He first stressed' the real possibilities that exist to foster unity work as demonstrated ~ developments in the ecumenical field in recent years. "Things have been seen Ja these past few years that have not been seen for centuries," he said. "These are facts -which speak for themselves but also speak above all as a testimony of the irresistible work of the Holy Ghost in the Church aDd in. all those who have been bap.. tized.

The Cardinal stressed thai against this background of 1he reawakening of the world to • desire for unity the layman bM a real role to play. "The unity of the Church, that perfect unity willed by Christ, -depends on the contribution of each and all of its members," he stated "Consequently all are .. fact in a position to contribute to the realization of unity and therefore every member has the grave duty toward Christ and toward the Church to interest himself in the unity of all be­ lievers in Christ and to work for -it."

Queens College Head Resigns

BRIDGEPORT (NC) Bishop Walter W. Curtis said here he is confident U.S. public schools will one day again combine religious values and popular education. The Bishop of Bridgeport said he is personally convinced that "the vast majority of our Amer_ ican people" would like to see some closer connection between religious training and schools. The prelate was the principal speaker at a convocation mark­ ing the first anniversary of the granting of a charter to· Sacred Heart University, the Bridgeport diocese's unique commuter col­ lege directed and staffed by lay­ men. "Catholics are not alone," Bishop Curtis said, "in their anxiety to assure religious edu­ elation in our country. "Increasingly, groups in other faiths are looking for a Way that will permit parents, through the educational system, to transmit their religious heritage as a foundation for the lives of their ehildren. Bishop Curtis also described government scholarships as. in­ direct assistance to religion and schooling.

NEW YORK (NC)-Harold W. Stoke disclosed the long running controversy over anti-Catholic discrimination charges was a contributing factor in his resig­ nation as president of Queens College here. His resignation, effective Nov. 1, has been ac­ cepted by the Board of Higher Education. For several years the discrim_ ination charges have cropped up, principally on the ground that certain Catholic teachers at the college failed to obtain pro­ motions. The charges have been aired in legal actions - and at board hearings. Stoke. said he resigned as head of the college and political sci­ ence professor "for personal rea_ sons." Regarding the bias con­ troversy, he said: "It was among the complexities which make the administrative problem at Queens College." He indicated there were other reasons for his resignation. Stoke will be on leave from Sept. 1 until his resignation takes effect. He said he hopes to re­ main in the field of higher education.

Church's Future Rests on Solid Family Living WASHINGTON (NC) American Catholic families "hungry for holiness," ac­ cording to a priest who has spent seven years with a na­ tional Catholic family agency and is now leaving for fulltime writing and lecturing. But there is need for a new approach to spirituality for mar­ ried couples that will take into account their special situation and needs, added Father Henry V. Sattler, C.SS.R., since 1957 assistant director of the Family Life Bureau, National Catholic Welfare Conference. Father Sattler has been re­ called by his· Redemptorist su­ periors for fulltime writing and lecturing assignments. In an in­ terview before his departure from his NCWC post, he said the Church and the nations must become "more family-minded." "The future of the Church in America, I suspect, does not so much rest on the parochial school system, a strong priestly and religious community, an enlightened hierarchy, a strong and articulate laity but upon solid CtIristian family liv­ ing. It has been a joy to contrib­ ute my mite to its growth," he said. Married Couples' Problem

.....

Father Sattler is the author of a pioneer sex education manual, "Parents, Children and the Facts of Life," which in hard covers and paperback form has sold half a million copies and has recently been translated into Spanish. Discussing the problems faced by married couples in their quest for holiness, he said they are often made to feel that '''their holiness must be achieved de­ spite, and not because of, their state of matrimony - bya re­ mote imitation of religious life." "Quite to the contrary," he said. "The married are not to imitate remotely the spirituality of celibates. Celibates must imi­ tate and transcend the spiritual_ ity of the married. Why else is the nun called a 'spouse of Christ'? Dual Spirituality "Christian marriage needs a red-blooded ascetical theology of its own and not merely a pale imitation of the spiritual books for celibates," he declared. "Even the recent avalanche of books on lay spirituality tends to ignore the special dual spiritu­ ality of husband and wife, as though even most laymen were unmarried." As for the needs a'nd problems of adolescents, Father Sattler claimed that they have been "short-changed as though they were suffering through a sort of disease." He hopes through his book on the subject to show that "adol­ escence is not a disease nor a time of torture for parents and teenagers" and to help young people to "sigh with relief in facing their growing pains with joy and a sense of challenge rather than with fear and con­ cern."

Gift to Missions GREEN BAY (NC)-A record $264,000 contribution for the missions was made in 1963 by Catholics of the Green Bay dio­ cese. Father S. A. Borusky, dioc­ esan director of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith, said the total was $40,000 great­ er than the 1962 donation.

Continued from Page One Priority-in its first discussions - was given to Concelebration and Communion under both species. It is expected that by next Holy Thursday a form of con­ celebration will be ready so that the priests can join together in offering the same Eucharist at the morning Mass of the Chrism and also at the evening Mass of the Lord's Supper. There will also be formulae for such concelebration on the occasion of priests' retreats, con­ ferE'~ -~s and synods. The Liturgy Constitution "en­ act<>ot las· Dec. 4 calls for the formulation of such rites,' de­ claring that concelebration­ normal in the Eastern Church ·(Catholic and Orthodox) - gives appro"Oriate manifestation to "the unity of the priesthood." It would give evidence of the, teaching that all priests - no matter what their degree or re­ sponsibility, share in the one and sole Priesthood of Christ and the individual priests share in the apostolk mission of their bish­ op. Holy Communion The Commission is also giving top priority to determining when . the faithful of the Latin Rite may receive Holy Communion under the forms of both bread and wine. The Constitution pro­ vides that Communion under both species may be granted to clerics in cases determined by the Holy See (newly ordained in Ordination; Religious in Pro­ fession; newly baptised at Mass following Baptism.) Subcommittees The Commission also intends to form ''''bcommittees com­ posed of li~urgists from all parts

NEW ORLEANS (NC)-Three or four priests from each dio­ cese should dedicate a portion. of their time to helping alco­ holics, it was recommended here by Msgr. Joseph A. Dunne, chaplain of the New York City Police Department. Speaking at the 6th annual Pastoral Institute on AlcohOlism, Msgr. .Dunne said the priests would find meetings of Alcohol~ ics Anonymous "most interest­ ing and rewarding,'? and would "see the spiritual joy which comes to each one who wins conquest of alcoholism."

of the world to work out the details of long-range reforms provided for by the Council. For the Mass alone, Archbishop Young of Hobart, Australia pointed out, there will be 10 such subcommittees. Each subcommittee will have a definite task; selecting appro­ priate Scripture readings, re-. forming the general structure of the Mass, working out certain rites. The committees will freely consult bishops, priests, reli­ gious, laity in arriving at their conclusions. When the work of the sub­ committee will be done, it will be forwarded to the Liturgical Commission for review. The prooosais will go from one to the other and back again until U,ey have satisfied all concerned. '~A very special subcommit­ tee with 10 sections" will see to it that harmony is preserved

Theresians Planning Foreign Expansion KANSAS CITY (NC)-Plans for expansion into foreign coun­ tries was the major considera­ tion of the advisory board of tbe Theresians when it met in Prov­ idence Hospital here. The Theresians is an organi­ zation of Catholic lay persons dedicated to fostering vocations to all women's religious commu­ nities. The advisory board ~ made up of priests, Religious and lay women from 11 states. Members of the board, recog­ nizing the interest and need for expansion of their organization, pledged "all possible coopera­ tion" in instituting Theresian units, "either autonomous units within the realms of the coun­ try's culture or under modified control of the mother organiza­ tion."

University to Honor Cardinal Marella WASHINGTON (NC)-Paolo Cardinal Marella, Pope Paul VI's legate for the dedication of the Vatican Pavilion at the New York World's Fair, will receive an honorary doctorate of laws and speak at a special convocation Friday, May 1 at the Catholic University of Americ here.' Cardinal Marella is Archpriest of St. Peter's basilica in Vatican City and Prefect of the Sacred Congregation for St. Petel"s.

throughout the Church's pub­ lie worship. One of the sections is to assure that· the liturgy it­ self presents a balanced theo­ logy. Archbishop Young pointed that an example would be to make sure "that the Church's teaching on death as expressed in the Requiem Mass is not in conflict with the concept of death expressed in the liturgy of Good Friday. The funeral ser­ vice of today, which draws many of its prayers from the Middle Ages, places heavy stress on death as sad and dreadful, while the Good Friday liturgy ties it to the triumpth of the Resurree:-­ tion."

out

Other 9Ubcommittee sections will deal with the Divin~ Office, the Biblic'tl aspects of the lit­ urgy, etc. Archbishop Young expected that the commission will need six or seven years to complete its long-range task. He said that o the commission's work will in­ fluence the church's worship for centuries and that it w,,"'"'l be rash to put reforms through hastily. If the work is done· hur­ riedly so as to answer the im­ mediate needs of the 1960s, be said, it could burden the Church of the 21st Century with the same type of meaningless liturgy that has straightjacketed wor­ ship for the past 400 years.

FAIRHAVEN LUMBER

Continued from Page One The Council press office an­ nounced 1ili.at the commission had "established a timing and method of discussion on various schemata for the coming third council session. While some schemata will still require deep examination and debate, others can follow more rapid procedure, since the Fathers have already had an opportunity to express their opinions on them." Though no details were given, observers theorized what this progress might be. Some men­ tioned a probable timetahle to be followed; others, considerably shortened debate on those mat­ ters which have already been discussed in council. The council communique said the commission examined other problems relating to the work of the g e n era 1 congregations (working assemblies of the coun­ cil Fathers) "in order to facili­ tate debate on individual sub­ jects and streamline the manner of speeches." Here, too, eyperts think that some kind of "Devil's Advo­ cate" could be named to sum up and Ii res e n t the criticisms against each schema. Another, a "Relator" would present a de­ fense of each schema. Both these prelates would simply give their thoughts on the schema but would summarize the opinions put forth by the Fathers. At its meeting, the Commis­ sion had examiped the schemata on: The Church, The Pastoral Office of Bishops, The Oriental Ghurches, Ecumenism, Priests, The Lay Apostolate. Marriage, and The Formation of Priests and Catholic Education. It was emphasized that it was not the work of this commission to judge the content of these schemata "but to see if they have been redrafted according to instruction" (given by the Fathers in past debates, amen~ ments, suggestions written in since the Fathers have returned home, etc.) The next meeting is scheduled for mid-June,

Asks Protestants To Learn More Of Cathol~cism

TORONTO (NC) - A United Church minister said Protestants should I ear n much more about the liturgy and • tradition of the Catholic Church. Dr. Alfred D. Forrest told 300 persons at an interfaith meeting: "We Protestants tend to dismiss as pretty irrelevant everything that was said and done that is 80t recorded in the canon of Scriptures, until Martin Luther, .Iohn Calvin, John Knox and John Wesley came along." "If it's not in the Bible, it has .eemed irrelevant. Now we know that the New Testament Scrip­ tures came out of Tradition. We have our scholarship. We know better. And this is one of the major studies of Faith and Order and the World Council of Churches. 1 find however that some of my good Protestant sub­ scribers want nothing of it," aid Dr. Forrest, editor of the United Church Observer. . He said: "Protestants must deepen their own understanding of the nature of the Churca. We Protestants have done our­ .elyes a lot of disservice by being too superficial in our knowledge and judgment of the Church of Rome." The minister-editor said "for our own sakes and for those of our children we need to purge eur history books of aU dis­ ocders and misinformation." He aid his Church's committee on Christian Faith is now reexam­ tning the booklet "What's the Difference" in the light of the ecumenical dialogue with the intention of correcting anT et"­ ~s or overstatements. 1)r. Forrest told CatiloIies Chere are ~ecial area.s whel-e Oleir help is rieeded. He said ..,.e Catholic dogmas, like the papal infallibility and the Ma­ rian dogmas, "are, as we under­ lltand them, completely unac­ eeptable to us." "1 know they are pretty dff­ 8cult for some of you," he said. -rbe Catholic Church will not be faithless to the ancient body of its faith. We cannot ask you to compromise with things you bold to be true. But we may expect deeper and deeper study and possible .reinterpretation."

-Responsibility

"What Do They Think" "What do those guys think we have been doing for the past twenty years?" These words of former heavy­ weight boxer Joe Louis give as good a commentary as one could wish on some of the newly-arisen leaders in the civil rights struggle. Most leaders' in the field, men and women of both races, have been pushing over the years and with a steadily increasing insistence for equality and justice on behalf of Negroes. Theirs has been and is a noble story of dedication to the principles of morality and social justice. They have advocated a movement within the confines of morality and legality and in keeping with the language of the Supreme Court of the United States, that the march for equality proceed with all deliberate speed. While it is hardly a tribute to American justice that t'he movement has taken one hundred years to reach the present state of affairs where something like its realization appears at least dimly on the horizons, still the fact re­ mains that these tactics of controned moral pressure have done much. The consciences of Americans have been disturbed, the moral implications of the struggle have been made burning bright, the dignity of those crying for justice . has blessedly upset the complacency and indifference of a ~ nation. But there is an ugly shadow casting its length across the scene. Some Johnny-come-latelys have arrived preaching a doctrine that closely approaches anarchy. Against the advice and pleadings of respected and responsible civil rights leaders, men and women who themselves have suffered the day-to-day indignities 'of segregation, men and women who have lived with and fought against malice and ill will with the weapons of raw courage and tenacious faith and admirable patience, against these heroes and true leaders in the civil rights field a handful has arisen de­ manding that illegality be .fought by illegality, immorality by immorality, injustice by anarchy, imbalance by "what Mayor Wagner of New York has called "a gun to the heart of the city." . Perhaps the most admirable aspect of the civil' rights struggle has been its spiritually-rooted motivation. Men of religion, mostly Protestant Negro ministers, have been outstanding for their insistence that the problem is a moral one, that the evil of segregation must be countered with love, that violence must be met with faith and courage that is not vacillation for being pati~nt. And now these leaders, who have been giving their ali over the years, are faced with the'tragedy of seeing their work and efforts harmed by a group that would unleach hate and violence. . All who see the moral justice. involved in the civil rights issue pray that this handful who would distort the picture might see that evil cannot be fought by evil. And perhaps they might also ask themselves what those who have been working all along for civil rights have been doing for the past twenty years. They might learn thereby what means to the end are not only moral but effective.

Considerations While it should "not be a selling point for an Appeal that goes by the name Catholic Charities it is still a col}­ sideration: the economic effect on a community of l the agencies supported by the Appeal. The payrolls of the Homes for the Aged and Infirm - the four already oper­ ating and the one being readied - make an imprint on an area that is by no means negligible. Other considerations that should impress business in­ terests especially are the facilities supplied communities by Appeal agencies that would otherwise have to. be built and maintained by public tax dollars, the professional ser­ vices given by men and women who staff these in the name of charity, the frugal use of each Appeal dollar, the stretching of funds to accomplish the maximum with the minimum.' . These considerations should underscore the point that the Catholic Charities Appeal is not only a "Catholic affair" but a public service as well.

C"fhnou.qh the Week. With the Chu.nch By REV. ROBERT W. HOVDA, Catholic University

Continued from Page One They expressed hope that, in the spirit of the Vatican council's decree on communications media, "the signs and symbols of the film medium (will) 9Peak to an men of who they really are ­ made in the image and sign of God." The statement was signed by the members of. the Bishops' committee: Archbishop John ~ Krol of Philadelphia, chairman; Bishop Walter W. Curtis of Bridgeport, Conn.; Bishop Lora! T. Lane of Rockford, Ill.; Auxi­ liary Bishop John A. Donovan of Detroit; and Auxiliary Bishop Timothy Manning of Los An. .geles. Power for Good, III The statement - entitled "The National Legion of Decency: 30 years of Christian Witness" ­ began by emphasizing the power, for good and ill, of the new Mass communications media. It un­ derlined their influence by re­ ferring to the modern world as an "audiovisual civilization." Among recent events illu9­ strating the power of the media, the statement cited their treat­ ment of the last days of Pope . John XXIII, which made this an "ennobling experience whose intimacy and depth the whole world shared;" the "sensitive coverage" given the Vatican council and the pontificate of Pope Paul VI; and the moving treatment of the events sur­ rounding the assassination of President Kennedy. "There can be no question then that the Church 'welcomes with joy' the new communica­ tions reyolution," the Bishope said. Turning to the history of the Legion of Decency, the statement recalled that at its founding in April, 1934, it was unique in the Catholic world. Now it is one of 42 national Catholic film of­ fices throughout the world. . Principal Function Remains The "primary function" of tlle national legion 'office, the state­ ment said, is "to offer a service of moral quidance to the film patron so that he may be able to make a discriminating choice of motion picture entertain. ment." The Bishops cited statistics to demonstrate a shift in Hollywood policy - imposed by the impact 'of television - away from fami­ ly films toward those designed for the mature viewer. In 1938, of 535 movies re­ . viewed by the legion, 496 (93 per cent were) approved for the general public. In· 1963, of 263 films reviewed, only 70. (26.62 per cent) were approved for the family and almost 50 per cent were placed in categories "other than those for the family or young people." The Bishops emphasized that _ moral ratings of' films will con­ . tinue to be a principal function of the National Legion of Decency. "If legion services were necessary in the past, they are even more required today," they said.

Pope Reiterates. Vocations Need

Orthodox Leader Sees Vast Area Of Agreement

VATICAN CITY (NC) - Pope Paul VI, speaking from his window to thousands of persons who waited below in St. Peter's square to recite the noonday Regina Coeli with him, remindect them that both the Church and the world need more religious vocations. "As we have said in other ways," the Pope told the people in the square, "the world and the Church ha"e need for voca­ tions, for young people who hear the call of God. "Today we say that the world and the Church need vocations. We pray that Our Lady inspire and guide generations of strong and generous souls to the ser­ vice of God." Earlier in the day, the Pope offered Mass in the Sistine chapel before a group of pilgrims from his old See of Milan. After a brief sermon in Italian on the Gospel theme of the day, the Good Shepherd, he addressed a few words to other pilgrims in French, English, German and Spanish.

ST. MARY - OF - THE­ WOODS (NC) - Catholics and Orthodox Christians share a "truly vast area of

Archbishop Bashir spok,e at an unu'sual Catholic-Orthodox gathering that followed a pri­ vate meeting with Archbishop Paul C.

Supreme. Pontiff Urges Prayers For Vocations

Blocks Family ,Planning Study

VATICAN CITY (NC) Pope Paul VI has told the world's Catholics that they have a duty to foster voca­ tions not only because of the Church's need for them, but also because the number of vocations to the priesthood are a "precise and indisputable index of the vitality of the Faith." In an appeal broadcast Sun­ day over Vatican Radio on the World Day of Prayer for Voca­ tions, Pope Paul cited the words of St. Matthew: "The harve~ is great but the laborers are few." Pope Paul also composed a prayer asking God for an in­ crease in vocations to communi­ ties of Brothers and Sisters. The Pope said that vocations are few "compared to the in­ creased necessities of pastoral care." He added: "Few they are in consideration of the exigencies of the modern world with its uneasiness, its need for light and guidance." The Church, the Pontiff said, stands in need of "teachers and directors who are progressive yet sympathetic for the past" as well as of vocations to care for "the great numbers who have strayed from Christian ideals and who are indifferent··· but 'who still need to see in priests and Religious the living example of a perfect Christian life." bdex of Catholicity "Above all there is a great need for dedicated hands on the mission field, where so many of our brothers need to be cate­ chized, helped and consoled." The Pope said the vocation rate is an index to a people's Catholicity because "where vo­ cations to the priesthood and re­ ligious life are abundant, there the people live generously in ac­ cord, with the Gospel. There, too, you :find good and fervent par­ ents' who are not afraid, but rath~r happy and honored, to give their chi I d r e n to the Church."

SAN FRANCISCO (NC)-The board of directors of the San Francisco United Community Fund failed to act on a proposed birth control study after a pro­ test by a Catholic spokesman. Msgr. -James Flynn, gene,al director of Catholic Social Serv_ ice for the San Francisco arch­ diocese and a member of the UCF's Social Planning Commit:. tee, opposed a suggestion that the board name a committee to study family planning. Msgr. Flynn said the Catholic Church was not attempting to impose its views on others, but that in a voluntary group like the United Community Fund agencies in the majority should not seek to override a minority which considers a proposed ac­ tion immoral. Divide Agencies He also warned. that action in the family planning field could divide agencies comprising the Community Fund and hurt its fund raising efforts. Meanwhile, controversy con. tinues here over the recent action of Mayor John F. Shelley in deleting funds for a birth con_ trol program from the city budget.

Is not love of the poor of the world tied up with the loft of a parish for the poor in its area? Suppose a frontiersman had cleared a small piece of a forest and, with the trees he had chopped down, built a log cabin. The trees yet uncut, or the land yet un­ cultivated, could be iikened to souls still in the order of nature, knowing not Christ. The trees subjected to the axe of discipline and made to minister to a human habitation might be likened to souls who became members of the Mystical Body of Christ, or the supernatural order. Would not such a woodsman seek to extend the arable land and diminish the wild foliage? Is not a pastor of a parish bound in like manner, out of love of Christ, to ·bring lost sheep into the fold, to become involved in every aspect of human · life because ChrfstaHected all hl,UDanity by His Incarnation?

Maturing Church Now Teaching About Peace CHERRY HILL (NC) The Cat hoI i c Church's teaching on race relations in recent years is a good ex­ 3JJJlple of its continually "ma­ turing social conscience," a priest-editor said here. Father John Reedy, C.S.C., editor of Ave Maria magazine, told a Communion breakfast of St. Peter Celestine church that segregation and discrimination were not seen as pressing- moral issues 50 years ago, but' now they are issues over which Catholics might be losing their souls. Disturbing This 'change' might be 'dis­ turbing' to some Catholics, but it doesn't mean the essential teaching of the C h u r chis changing," the Holy Cross priest said. "But the way this teaching is expressed for each generation, the way in which each genera­ tion responds to its own errors and dangers, this does change," he asserted. Igno-rance Fath'er Reedy pointed out that God has chosen the "instrumen­ tality of men - men who share the good intentions and weak­ nesses of other men - to direct His Mystical Body. This means that men in authority will be at times ignorant, unperceptive, dull in their exercise of the teaching and ruling function of the Church." But, he added, this does not make men evil. It merely makes them human, fallible and weak "just as I am, and you are, on other issues." "Our generation stands before God in the light of a different judgment than that passed on my parents' generation,';. he said. "We shall be judged by what we have seen." . What was done previously with "ignorant innocence," he said, can no longer be done with either ignorance or innocence. "Putting this in the bluntest terms, it is quite possible ­ even likely that men and women are losing their souls over hardness of heart in this matter," Father Reedy declared.

Posthumous Award To Catholic Father RALEIGH (NS) Paul A. Mowery of Shelby, N.C., des­ cribed as an "extraordinarily or­ dinary" man, has been named North Carolina's 1964 Catholic Father - but he'll never know it. Paul Mowrey is dead. The parent-educator commit­ tee of the North Carolina Lay­ men's Association, which made the selection, also voted Mrs. Rose Allen of Wilmington, N.C., as the Catholic Mother of the year. She is a widow whose only daughter is Sister Mary Rosa­ lind of the Sisters of Mercy, stationed in Belmont, N.C. Mowrey, a popular postman in Shelby, called each of his seven chiIaren, one at a time, to his deathbed when he knew life's end was near. He explained to each that it was God's will, asked only that they remember his love for them and for each to love and cherish God and the Catholic Faith. He also had a similar longer talk with his wife and shortly afterwards he died.

WASHINGTON (NC) - The tebellion that overthrew the leftist regime of President Joao Goulart of Brazil has indirectly improved the position of the Church in Latin America's lar­ gest nation, ,according to an ex­ pert on Brazilian affairs. Father John De Jong of the Latin American Bureau, Nation­ al Catholic Welfare Conference, voiced this opinion in an inter­ view here. The Dutch-born priest, who has spent 18 years in Brazil, said Church leaders there will have greater access to the new autho­ rities than they did to those of the ousted government. The Goulart administration, he said, was not out-and-out com­ munist, but was becoming more and more Mar xis t and in­ creasingly looking for support tG the Soviet Union and Red China.'Resented Slur Because of better relations with the new regime, Father De Jong said, Catholic leaders will have a better chance of getting government cooperation to put into effect the board program of social and economic reform that has been called for by Brazil's Bishops. The rebellion, he noted, was sparked by C~tholics who dem­ onstrated in Belo Horizonte against a slur on the Church by ex-President Goulart.

The lit tIe birds swooped through the air, chirping in­ cessantly. "They come in every time we open the door," ex­ plained the guide. "They pick up the cows' grain." High point of the tour was seeing many of the 60 cows housed in the barn being milked. Ordinarily milking machines are used, but the guide also demon­ strated the old - style han d method. The well-trained cows trotted to the machines as their turns came, were thoroughly washed, then had milkers at­ tached. Fascinated, the children watched huge glass containers filling with the fluid as milking progressed. They picked favo­ rite bossies, deciding one had a Beatle-like crop of curls, and that another, who wasn't pro­ NOW THEY KNOW WHERE IT COMES FROM: Milk ducing much milk, was nothing but a lazybones.

Stresses Prelates' Position On Civil Rights Legislation By Msgr. George G. Higgins Several years ago this writer incurred the wrath of a number of his fellow Catholics by pointing out - as Dlany observers had done before and as many more have done in the meantime - that almost all of the more ex­ treme right wing organiza­ ing out copies of an anti-civil tions in the United States rights pamphlet written by its tend to be strangely silent West Coast Director and en­ about social reform in gen­ titled: "Civil Rights--Commu­ eral and about civil rights in particular. This allegation was greeted wit h disdain and righteous indig­ nation by many of our readers. We were told, in no uncertain terms, that we we re being very unfair to till e organiza­ tions in ques­ -"' twn. Thes€ or­ ganizations, we were solemnly assured, ar~ wholeheartedly devoted to the cause of social justice and civil rights-more so, if you piease, than any of the so-ca.lled "lib­ eral" organizations in the United States. Some of the indignant letters we received at that time from members of the John Birch So­ ciety and similar organizations were abusive and, more often than not, downright slanderous in their personal asides about· the late President Kennedy and other distinguished champions of civil rights. Even at that, however, we 'Were pleased to receive these letters, for they gave us at least _me little reason to hope that, eontrary to what we had hither­ to been led to think, the John Birch Society and some of its many counterparts in the United States would pleasantly surprise lIS, in the end, by joining, if not actually leading the fight for eomprehensive civil rights leg­ islation and other crucial meas­ ures of social reform. Observes MoratoriulIl We decided, then, to declare a' moratorium and t<. refrain from el·iticizing any of the so-called rightist organizations, includiog the John Birch Society, until all the returns were in on the issue of civil rights legislation. . The rest of the story, of course, is anti-climactic and hardly needs to be related. The returns are now in, and, sad'to say, our righteously indignant correspon­ dents of several years ago, have, by and large, failed to redeem _, their unconditional guarantees of right wing support for the eause of interracial justice. The organizations, which they 90 solemnly assured us were the real, solid-gold champions of civil rights, not only have re­ fused to support comprehensive civil rights legislation but, in varying degrees are desperately trying to prevent its enactment, come what may, Needless to add, they are do­ ing this, as frantically as ever, in the 'name of anti-communism. 'Communist Plot?' The John Birch Society, for example, is peddling for $1 each so-called "civil rights kits" which bitterly assail the pend­ ing civil rights bill and, believe it or not, bluntly charge that de_ segregation is a "communist plot." These kits whic'h are being ad­ vertised in the Birch Society's monthly organ, American Opin­ ion, are entitled: "The Truth About Civil Rights (The com­ munist program)" and are being plugged as follows: "Now, in one packet, the whole story of how the communists plan to turn racial strife into civil war."

Millions to Visit Vatican Pavilion At World's Fair FLUSHING MEADOWS (NC)~With only a few ex­ hibits still uncompleted, the 1964 New York World's Fair opened here yesterday to a fan­ fare of trumpets and the official blessing of President Johnson and other civic and religious dignitaries. All roads, tracks and air routes lead to Flushing Meadow, a fact that presents the Catholic Church with an historic educa­ tional opportunity. Some 70 million persons are expected to visit the Vatican Pavilion during the life of the fair and, for many, it will be their first contact with the real­ ity of the Catholic Church. The pavilion's theme is "Christ Liv­ ing in the World." Unveils 'Pi eta' The Vatican exhibit, occupy­ ing a 55,000 square-foot site, was dedicated Sunday by Paola Car­ dinal Marella, legate of Pope Paul VI. It was also the occasion for the unveiling of Michelan­ gelo's celebrated 'Pieta' statuary which made perhaps the most discussed and controversial ocean crossing since Columbus. The Vatican Pavilion's theme of Christ in the contemporary world has been illustrated in three sections - the Church as Christ loving, as Christ teaching and as Christ sanctifying. Everything that art, sculpture, electronics, motion pictures and literature can do to foster under­ standing of this central mystery of the Church has been utilized by the designers and Church of­ ficials. Provision has been made for the window shopper and the scholar. The building. itself has an oval-spiral design, necessitated by the aemand for smooth crowd-flow during periods of peak attendance. Of steel-frame construetion, the pavilion ill built on a fotrndation of con­ crete-capped piles and has a concrete slab as its floor. Above ground, the structure rises to a total height of 100 feet. To pre­ vent monotony due to the ex­ tensive wall areas, the exterior of the building has been con­ structed with a horizontal cren­ elation, or battlement, and is adorned with 10 bas relief sculp­ tured panels in contemporary style, representing the Church, the Creed, the Commandments and the liturgy.

Baptist Publishes Catholic Newspaper WASHINGTON (NC) - The Catholic parish newspaper La Voz in Puno, Peru, didn't miss one issue last year-thanks to an American Baptist Peace Corps member. Robert F. Clark', 26, of Bethes­ da, Md., who just returned here from a 32-month tour with the Papal Volunteers in Puno, told how he was unable to put out the weekly paper for the Mary­ knoll Fathers during a month­ long journey to Lima. . He found a volunteer in a young Peace Corps member whose mother, back home in the United States, wrote hymns for the Baptist church. The paper, he said, was as good as ever with its Baptist editor.

ANCHOR17 Shakespeare's Birthday Again Recalls Ancient THE Thurs., April 23, 1964 Controversy-Was ~e Or Wasn't He Catholic? Prelate Praises

Today is the 400th birthday of William Shakespeare, an anniversary that didn't go unnoticed at Sacred Hearts Academy, Fall River. They anticipated the date a little, since this is a vacation week, but their celebration was worth a four-century wait, according to participants. Junior and senior English students dressed as Shakespearean characters for a whole day, attending s n c h unShakespearean courses as typing and short­ hand clad in leotards, gym suits ("amazingly Elizabethan"), and feathered hats. Then they presented scenes from MacBeth, The Merchant of Venice, A Midsummer Night's Dream and Julius Caesar to an enthralled assembly of fellow SHA'ers. Climax came when an enormous birthday cake was wheeled on stage and everyone joined in singing "Happy Birth­ day" to the Bard. The cake was cut into 400 pieces for distribu­ tion to the happily coincidental number of 400 girls--who agreed they needed refreshment after blowing out 400 candles. In charge of the giant tribute were Mrs. Charles Soforenko imd Sister Mary Hortense of the academy English department. A large cast was headed by Marybeth Furze as Shakespeare. Sophomores Cit SHA will carry the celebration a step further Wednesday, April 29 when they'll travel to Boston to see a production of The Comedy of Errors by the Royal Shakespeare Company, touring the United States in connection with the 400th birthday year. Was He or Wasn't He The' attention focused on Shakespeare this year recalls the controversy, almost as popular as whether he did or didn't write his own plays ­ was he or wasn't he a Roman Catholic? At least two scholars are cer­ tain he was. They are Heinrich Mutschmann and Karl Wenters­ dorf. Their evidence is set forth in a massive and learned book, "Shakespeare and Catholicism." In preparation for its writing they collected and collated ma­ terial scattered through many other books and articles bearing on the poet's religion. Their study includes evidence drawn from Shakespeare's personal and historical background, together with internal testimony afforded by his plays and poems. In the poet's own works they studied 197 separate passages bearing on Catholic dogma, ideas, and customs. An amazing range of Catholic teaching is covered in these passages, they say, including the doctrine of grace and references to six of the seven sacraments. Mention of the sacrament of penance, for instance, is so de­ tailed as to include all five ele­ ments needed for a good confes­ sion. Other matters treated include the seven capital sins, the prac­ tice of making a retreat, Cath­ olic doctrine as to the burial of those who commit suicide, the existence of purgatory, prayer for the dead, supplication of the saints, veneration of relics (strictly forbidden in England at the time), and use of the ros­ ary and sign of the cross.

Diocese Observes Diamond Jubilee DULUTH (NC) - Chicago's Albert Cardinal Meyer will pre­ side at a solemn Pontifical Mass here Tuesday, May 5 marking the 75th anniversary of the founding of the Duluth diocese here in Millnesota. Bishop Francis J. Schenk of Duluth will offer the Mass in Holy Rosary cathedral and Archbishop Leo Binz of St. Paul will preach the sermon.

Press Coverage Of Council ST. LOUIS (NC) - The American bishop who supervised the operation of the English-language press panel

at the second session of the Vatican council said here that reporting of the council repre­ sented the "best news coverage of any religious news event in history." Bishop Albert R. Zuroweste of Belleville, Ill., a former episcopal moderator of the U.S. Catholic press, praised the work of both the religious press and. the mass media - secular news­ papers, magazines, and broad­ cast agencies. Bishop Zuroweste, who served as chairman of the U.S. Bish­ ops' Committee for the Press .... Panel, described the coverage at a fundraising dinner for the Family Life Center, operated at Pevely, Mo., by the Benedictine community of Pius X Monastery. The Swiss American congrega­ tion conducts retreats for mar­ ried couples. N<:\ting that there were defi­ ciencies in the coverage of the Vatican council's first session, the Bishop explained the steps taken by the U.S. press panel to give reporters background in­ formation on the council events. 'Best Show' Daily gessions were held in the U.S.O. building in Rome, and Bishop Zuroweste said between 100 and 150 reporters faithfully attended the meetings. Serving on the panel were such council experts as Redemptorist Father Bernard Haering and the late Father Gustave Weigel, S.J. Bishop Zuroweste called the­ daily panel's performance, "the best show in Rome." "The cov­ erage .was good for - the most part;' he said. In some instances ' it was bad. But it was the best news coverage of any religiou news event in history."

Says Communists Infiltrat'e Brazil Church Groups RIO DE JANEIRO (NC) -A Catholic paper directed by a bishop has charged that Church organizations, parti­ cularly Catholic Action, anii even members of the clergy have been infiltrated by com­ munists in Brazil. • This accusation came as the nation's new government, which overthrew the leftist regime of ex-President Joao Goulart in early April, has uncovered a vast amount of evidence of Red subversion. Meanwhile, a group of Brazil­ ian Bishops has asked modera­ tion in the new regime's anti­ communist efforts. A cardinal has urged Ca,tholics to take part in public life, but as individuals, not representatives of the Church. And another group of bishops has called for national uri.ity to solve Brazil's still press_

ing social and economic prob­ lems. Leadership of the new re­

gime - military men who

ousted Goulart for fear he was allowing Marxists in his admin­

istration to prepare for a Red takeover-has indicated it Is in agreement with the Church's at_ t~tude toward urgently needed reforms here in Latin America's largest country. The War Minis_ try issued the following note: Had Leading Role "In reply to questions by the press about the position of the high command of the revolution regarding the social doctrine of the Church expressed in the

latest statement of the Brazilian Bishops, which points to the need for reforms demanded by our national development and the underdevelopment of sev­ eral areas and territories in Bra­ zil where the effects of social dissatisfaction are apparent, Gen. Costa Silva replied in the name of the supreme command

of the revolution: 'The social

doctrine of the revolution coin­ cides with the social doctrin'e of the Church. The revolution shares the aspiration for social justice for the people.'''

Catholics played a leading

role in the rebellion. Long be­ fore its start, a number of Bra­ zilian prelates, headed by Jaime Cardinal de' Barros Camara of Rio de Janeiro, warned against the communist activities toler­ ated by the Goulart government

SAN FRANCISCO (NC)-A Catholic lay leader urged here that U. S. Catholics "draw on our American characteristic and accept the risk" of giving lay­ men a larger role in the Church. Laymen "will make mistakes" if given policy-making roles in Church finance and management -"but so do the priests who now have these jobs," said Philip Scharper. Some 2,500 laymen, priests and Religious attended the sym­ posium, sponsored by the uni­ versity's alumni, and also heard addresses by U. S. Sen. Eugene J. McCarthy of Minnesota and Fat her Godfrey Diekmann, O.S.B. editor of Worship mag­ azine and a liturgy expert for the Second Vatican Council. 'Ivory Tower' Scharper charged that "the exercise of authority in the American Church has tended to

be feudalistic" and needs to be changed. "Bishops and pastors must realize there is danger in op­ erating from a soundproof ivory tower," he said. "They must ex­ pose themselves to the views of laymen, for as decision-makers they rely on facts--as many as pO~Lible, as accurate as possible. "What is missing is effective dialogue and communication be­ tween Church authorities and those who can give them expert information and help. No ma­ chinery exists for the laity to express themselves even when invited to do so." Scharper acknowledged that "we already have lay represen­ tation in the teaching and sanc­ tifying missions of the Church­ hiy teachers in schools and the Confraternity of Christian Doc­ trine and lay participation in the liturgy.

Chinese Prelates Consider Liturgy TAIPEI (NC) - The Bishops assembled' here under Thomas Cardintl Tien, O.M.I., _Apostolic Administrator of Taipei, to conside:' changing lOme pal'lts of the liturgy and :Mass into Chinese. Faced with the problem of the many dialects spoken on the mainland and this island, the bishops debated a suggestion to translate the Mass into Pai Hull, a classical Chinese style each person can read in his own dia­ lect.

Archbishop Giuseppe Caprio, Apostolic Nuncio to China, pre­ sided at the sessions. After the first meeting, the bishops took part in the dedication of Arch­ bishop Caprio's newly-completed official resident in TaipeL of· Formosa

Paper Dispu*'es Donovan on Cuba MIAMI (NC)-The Voice, Mi_ ami diocesan newspaper, has disputed a statement by New York attorney James Donovan that the Catholic Church is not being persecuted in Cuba. ''The truth of the matter is that Castro is persecuting the Church; he is eliminating the Church by making it impossible for it to exist," the Voice said in a page one editorial. Donovan in a talk recently at the National Press Club in Washington, D. C., said that Cuban churches are open and . reasonably well attended; that priests are free to preach as they wish, and that Fidel Castro has no objection to having priests ill Cuba as long as they are native Cubans and nof" Spaniards. Donovan personally negotiated with Castro for the exchange of $60 million worth of U. S. med-­ r.. ical supplies for 1,300 prisoners TESTIMONIAL: Most Rev. James J.
