Protestant· Leaders for School Aid PROVIDENCE (NC)-Nine Protestant church leaders have issued a statement urging "the Protestant community to stop acting as though its only concern was the destruction of the Roman Catholic school system and starting acting in trust toward our Roman Catholic brethren." The Protestant churchmen suggested to the R. I. General Assembly that public funds could "become available for the education of all the children within the state" in' accordance with the U. S. Constitution. In Boston, meanwhile, Rev. Paul L. Sturges, executive minister of the Massachusetts Baptist Convention, told the State Legislature: "We cannot oppose 'I< * >I< public monies being used for the support of non-public or religious schools, provided that the leaders of schools seeking such

Over 2,225 contacts will be made with professional, business, fraternal and industry leaders who have been' afforded the opportunity of contributing to 31 agencies of the Catholic Diocese of Fall River' which render social and charitable ser· vices for all people of the community. Attorney James H. Smith of Falmouth, Appeal Lay Chairman said today: "The first returns of Special Gifts are heartening.

4. The special gift solicitors, making returns speedily, hope to have their contacts made and their returns filed at their respective area headquarters by Saturday, May 3. The slogan of the 1969 Appeal is: "Every gift makes a difference." The solicitors find this theme appealing to the contributors thus far approached in the Special Gifts campaign. Each gift counts to the thousands of people who are helped in the 31 appeal services. Efforts for an increase in giving must be made to meet ris,ing maintenance costs and to provide new services to be started by the Most Rev. James L.

Chaplain Chief Backs Vietnam Policy SEATTLE (NC)-"This world is not now and never will be a flower garden," Msgr. (Maj. Gen.) Francis Sampson, Chief of Chaplains of the United States Army, told 400 delegates at the Military Chaplains Association convention here. "War goes on continually," he added "wars· against individuals, against forces of injustice, against forces of graft and against forces of corruptions. Although we don't like to fight, this is all the more reason we don't lie down and let these forces take over." The monsignor said "I'm satisfied the Vietnam War is a just policy." In an interview, he praised today's military men and compared them to the soldiers of World War II and Korea. Today's men are better educated, he said, and are "better led," They take to military life "with much less moaning and groaning than did the men during World War II and Korea."

Msgr. Sampson declared: "Chaplains are neither drum beaters for the service, nor recruiters. We are not designated as national policy exponents and we're not propaganda agents. We're chaplains because we want to give men the opportu-

down, though not halt, the retrenchment of parochial schools in Rhode Island. The statement of the nine Protestant clergymen followed one by Episcopal Bishop John S. Higgins of Rhode Island, longtime opponent of aid to parochial schools. Bishop Higgins said the salary supplement bill is "immoral" legIslation, because some private schools it would benefit do not need assistance, noting there are about six private schools in Rhode Island that are financially independent and would not need state funds. "We believe the argument being raised about the 'Immorality' of teacher-support to certain 'rich' private schools to be nothing more than a 'red herring. '" the nine Protestant leaders stressed.

30 Philosophers Deplore Church Unity Thr'eat NEW YORK (NC)-Thirty Catholic philosophers attending the American Catholic Philosophical Association's annual meeting here have issued a statement pledging their allegiance to the Pope and deploring what they described as current threats to Church unity. The statement said: "We reaffirm our allegiance to the Pontiff. We support h.im in his efforts to bring about internal peace in the Church and to promote a greater degree of orderly freedom. "Despite the present turmoil, we are confident about the final outcome. The oldest institution of the Western world may be undergoing a crisis, but we do not believe it is destined to succumb to current ephemeral winds of doctrine or to a rebellious minority of its children." The signers are convinced that Pope Paul is trying to expand freedom within the Church and added that such an effort is "imperiled by disruptive forces." The four past presidents 'who signed the statement are: Father Leo R. Ward, professor emeritus of philosophy at the University of Notre Dame; Dr. Vincent E. Smith of Columbia University; Dr. Francis E. McMahon, lecturer in Philosophy at. Roosevelt University in Chicago and Dr. Vernon Bourke ofSt. Louis University.

The march took place almost immediately after the former Saginaw auxiliary bishop was named to head the school. Bishop Hickey was identified in some pictures as the, priest at the head of the peace march. He admitted, however, that he was among those who completed the 15-mile hike. Bishop Hickey said he had , nothing to do with the organization of the peace march. He also contended that to refer to the pilgrimage as a peace march is erroneous, at least in the sense understood in the United States.

VATICAN CITY (NC) - Pope Paul has praised members of the National Council of Churches of the United States for their cooperation with Catholics to resolve "war and violence, the conflict between the races and between the rich and the poor. "You no doubt are aware that the witness of your ecumenical spirit, attitudes and activities is not confined to your own country," the Pope had told the Protestant leaders at a special audience. .

He said that "ecumenical promise" in the United States has made churchmen "more ready to face the grave problems that lie in our way." Bishop Mathews noted that "these major problems are neither only Roman Catholic, nor are they only Protestant: "In the ecumenical movement of our national life, we find ourselves being drawn together to deal with problems too vast for any of our churches to face alone," Bishop Mathews

"The relations between Roman Catholics and Protestants in the United States have, in many ways; implications for the general ecumenical and-we would add - missionary movements throughout the world." A statement prepared by Methodist Bishop James K. Mathews from Boston, chairman for the Consultation on Church Union, was read at the audience'.

GASTONIA (NC)-Business has improved 25 per cent since the Center Theater in this North Carolina community here told its patrons to "put up or shut up"-put up their money for family-type films or shut up about the showing of movies containing sex and violence. RL. the experiment series ends May "Sonny" Baker Jr., owner of 20.He pointed out that as a citithe Center and Webb Thea- zen of the community he must ters, recently ran an advertise路 ment in the local newspapers explaining that "we have received complaints about no family-type movies." He booked a series of unobjectionable films, every one of which "is fine entertainment for the entire family." "If you want to see sex and voiolence," Baker said in the ad, "then you will have to watch TV or go to some other theater." The Center Theater is now half-way through the 60-day experiment, and gross receipts show an increase. Patrons definitely have responded favorably to Baker's challenge: "Now show us if you are willing to buy family-type movies instead of sex and violence." Not Enough But the 25 per cent increase is not enough to impress the movie companies, Baker said. "We need to double the business of what we usually do," he said, if the film producers are to be convinced that the current trend of sex and violence in movies is not appreciated by patrons. Baker said he will continue showing family-type films after

No Complaint Although Baker's ad was right to the' point, he did not receive any complaints from patrons. ",They needed an eye-opener," Baker said. "The people needed something like this." The movie fare at the Center has included "Hello Down There" and "My Side of the Mountain," which was held over because of good business. Future bookings include Walt Disney's "Smith" and "African Safari."

Cardinal Roy to Visit fiormer Qu'ebec Archdiocese Outpost ST. LOUIS (NC)-When Maurice Cardinal Roy of Quebec delivers the keynote speech at the National Council of Catholic Men convention here today, he will be the first Quebec prelate to visit an important outpost in the once gigantic Canadian See. The city of St. Louis is named for the French king who is th~ patron of the Quebec archdiocese. This is no mere coincidence. The city of St. Louis was once part of the Quebec archdiocese. History buffs saw Cardinal Roy's visit here as an opportunity to dig into some little known facts about the once far-flung Quebec See. Although St. Louis and Quebec are more than 1,200 miles apart, they were linked together in the archdiocese of Quebec, ol.dest . See-except ~or Mexico Clty-m North Amenca.

Reds Admit Religion 'Not Exterminated' BONN (NC)-In spite of "uncompromising struggles," religion has not yet been "exterminated" in communist Albania, according to the newspaper of the Albanian Communist party, "Zeri i Populit." KNA, the German Catholic news agency, said the paper blamed the survival of religion on the "relaxation" by party activists of "tenacious" and "persistent" attempts to do away with religion in Albania. As an example, the Albanian Communist party organ pointed out that p,arents still have their children bllptized secretly. Moreover, the paper concluded, C,ommunion hosts are being ba~ed in state bakeries clandestinely, and, in smaller towns and villages "religious burials are taking place."

5 Donato Family of New Bedford Have Seen Much of World in 11 Years of Marriage Taunton DCCW When Anne Thomas of New Bedford and John Donato of Boston were married in St. James Church in New Bedford in 1958, neither expected to turn into a "globe trotter." However, like many young service families today, the Donatos are people on the move. Their son Michael, 9, was born in Evreux, France. Their daughter Rachel, I, was born in Peruand baptized there by Rev. I John J. Lawler, M.M., of New Bedford. Tuesday, the Donatos left for a cross country trip by car to Ellsworth AFB in South Dakota, where John, an Air Force master sergeant, is to be stationed. Last week, sitting ,in the living room of the S. Joseph Thomas home at 166 Aquidneck St.the home of Anne's parents, where the Donatos visit "between assignments"-they talked about their life as modem wanderers. Rather Be Home Anne admits that she'd "rather be home in one spot and have my own home," but indications are she wouldn't have wanted to miss the travels she already has had- and the ones that may be in store in die next five or six years. Their first "real home" was in France. John was an Airman 11c at the time and housing on the Air Force base in Evreux was at a premium. So, the Donatos had to "live on the economy." "At first, it was hard," Anne says. "I wanted to live on the base. But later I realized how lucky we were that things happened as they did. Lots of Americans just stay on the base and when they"leave a country after two or three years, they can't even say 'Thank you'· in the language." That wasn't the case for the Donatos. "We lived in an old chateau," John says. "It was beautiful. There were four or five acres of grounds with apple trees and pears and plums, cherries, filberts and walnuts-they grew everything. A little stream flowed right through the grounds." . One of the biggest adjustments for the young couple, then in their early 20's, was trying to keep warm in cold weather. "Th"ere was a furnace," John says-motioning with his hands in a small - square to indicate the size-,' "to heat the 15 'to 20 roomS. It didn't." "I was wrapped up in a blanket most of the time," Anne says. "But spring and summer were beautifuL" - .... . Learned .language Diiriiig bf;r days in France, Anne learned to speak fluent French. "I had to," she explains. "John was gone much of the time and I had to shop every ~ day." "She'd go 'to the· market and barter with the farmers for fresh fruits and vegetables," John injects. "Yes," says Anne. "At first they took me. But after a while they began to think I was French -then I sometimes got the better of them." ·From France, the Donatos went to Dow Air Force Base in Maine and then Anne came home to spend a year with her parents while John was \n Vietnam. Later he was stationed at Pease Air Force Base in Maine. Their most recent assignment was in Peru, where John was assigned to the Air Force Mission. In preparation for that assignment, both John and Anne went to school at the Foreign Service Institute in Washington -he for six months and she for a six-week course in the Span-

The ceremony will be followed by a dinner at the Red Coach Grill, Middleboro. The district sponsored an open meeting featuring exhibits and foods from 10 countries, including France, Lebanon, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Israel, Mexico, Germany, and Portugal. The program was directed by Mrs. Aristides Andrade and the International Affairs Commission of the district and also featured folk songs and slides on the Holy Land shown by Miss Eileen Henchy.

ish language and customs and traditions of the Latin American countries. "One of the things that was impressed on us," she says wryly "is that women in South Amer. ica never, never wear slacks. So none of us brought slacks and that's all the women wore." When the Donatos arrived in Lima, their first phone call from the pension that was home the first two months, was to Father Lawler, a friend of Anne's family. 'Big Red' "From. then on we saw quite a bit of him," John says, recalling with a grin that Father. Lawler's undignified title in Lima i$ "Big Red." "All the wives in the Air Force Mission baked cakes for his bazaars," John recalls. "Protestant and .Catholic. I'd pick them up and deliver them." The New Bedford missionary "looks wonderful and feels wonderful," they say; "but he works too hard." "All priests there do," John says. "In Ciudad de Dios, there's a church there that Cardinal Cushing built, four priests are trying to serv~ what's estimated at at least 60,000 people-and the fourth priest just arrived. There were just three." He shakes his head as he adds, "They're kept pretty busy!" Living expenses in Peru are high, the Donatos admit, "but, if they told me to be ready to head back there in 24 hours," says John, "I'd be packed in an hour and say, 'What do I do with the other 23 hours?" Many Souvenirs John expects to remain in the Air Force for at least another five years when· he will be eligible for retirement. Then the Donatos will have their "real home" instead of "packing and unpacking and then packing again," as Anne puts it.

When that day comes, they will have surrounding them souvenirs of the places in which they have lived and in which they have made homes. There is an antique French coffee grinder that a friend gave Anne when she was le~ving Evreux. And an old grandmother clock German friends got for John from East Germany. They have marble fruit from Pisa that looks good enough to eat, figures from Ecuador and a beautifully designed hand woven wall hanging from Peru. "Wherever we are is home," Anne says. And, like all the other young couples of their generation who are on the move today, John and Anne Donato are piling up a storehouse of memories to help furnish their future.

CLEVELAND (NC) - St. Joseph High School, operated here by the Society of Mary, has announced an "ability to pay" tuition schedule for next Fall. Brother Philip T. Aaron, prinpal, said the school will use the computerized "parents financial statement" developed by the School Scholarship Service in Princeton, N. J. Fall tuition at the 2,000-boy school, largest in Ohio, will be $450. A parent who feels he cannot afford the cost can complete the parents financial statement, Brother Aaron said. The form also has 'space to· note the amount being spent on education for other members of' the family.

There has been a concerted effort throughout the nation to push through liberalized abbrtion bills.

It must be recalled that law has as its aim good order in a community.

Th¢re comes a time and a place when a group must say -:This area of belief is so strong within us and so necessary a part of community order that we will make al stand here and I will not retreat from it. _ A liberalized abortion law was brought up in the .

It was defeated after an assemblyman who had been crippled with polio as a child rose I in opposition to the provision of the bill that would allow abortion "when there is medical evidence of a substantial risk that the foetus, if born; would be so grossly malformed, or would have such serious physical" or mental ~bnormalities, as' to be permanently incapable of caring for himself."

He said Father Murray had predicted the course of events following the council, and compared the experience of today's Catholic with the experience of the bishops at the council. Certitude in Commitment According to Father Murphy, the contemporary Catholic, like the bishops, "must begin with a good deal of confusion and uncertainty; will therefore pass through a period of serious crisis and tension, but can expect to end with a certain measure of light and joy," Father Burghardt said. The Jesuit theologian concluded: "Faith finds its certitude in the very decision, in the passionate affirmation of commitment to Christ, a certitude quite other than the philosophical or historical certitude that can come from a' study of faith's credibility. And precisely herein lies faith's risk. It is not a commitment on objective evidence; it is not subject to rigid demonstration; it is even compatible with doubt.

Scots to Fight World Poverty EDINBURGH (N C) - The Catholic bishops of Scotland are to set up a commission for justice and peace aimed at fighting world poverty. Modelled on the Vatican commission formed by Pope Paul two years ago, the new commission will work with governmental and international agencies, nonChristian bodies and other Christian churches. The aim will be to educate Catholics in their duty to alleviate world poverty and distress, to help develop poor countries and to promote social justice at home and abroad. Its program does not include fund-raising. This is already being done through the Scottish Catholic International Aid Fund set up in 1965. The decision to form the commission was taken by the bishops at their bi-annual meeting at Aberdeen.

Cite Li-ving Costs Major Superiors Ask $2500 'Minimum Salary for Teaching Sisters

. , COLUMBUS (NC) - A minimum $2,500 a year salary for Sisters teaching in Catholic schools was recommended to Ohio bishops. This minimum wage, according to. 87 M:;ljor .Superiors of Men ahd 'Women, would .offset rising living costs for religious communities. The increase, sought in graduated steps over the next three years, would cost Ohio Catholics an estimated $3 million of $3.5 million a year. Religious orders in the Cleveland and Youngstown dioceses presently receive ·$1,100 a year for each teaching Sister. The rate is $1,800 a year in the Cincinnati archdiocese. Archbishop -Kari J. Alter of Cincinnati described current salaries as "very inadequate to meet Sisters' living costs and obligations." . Bishop Clarence G. Issenmann

Two hundred- and sixty were buried - by relatives in family burial grounds. These were the ones identified py some piece of jewelry or clothing and claimed by their families. On April 1, amass funeral was held for 134 bodies found in shallow graves in the sand flats southeast of the, city. Since these first bodies were accidentally discovered, vOlimteer workers have been digging systematically in the same area. So far they have found almost 500 bodies.

The superiors also requested that after three years, the teaching Sisters' salary scale be adjusted 'annually to 'coincide with the cost of living 'index. . . They ·recommended diocesanwritten' job descriptions for teaching Sisters, individual contracts, recognition of Sisters as members of the parish, encouraging them to take part in parish activities, and assignment by the d i 0 c e san superintendent of schools of the number of Sisters to 'staff each .parish school.

For the past two weeks we have begun to get back into the swing of working in the garden again. It feels great to get outside but the muscles are a little stiff and the fingers a little sore.

In my father's case he worked as a salesman for many years, certainly not a physical job, and yet he can work me under the table. Hard To Do We are constantly being warned 'by doctors that unless we exercise we will be susceptible to all sorts of ills when we grow older, but it is very difficult to undertake a physical fitness program on one's own, partly because it is time-consurning and partly because life has become relatively easy for us.

As the season progresses and the days are longer and warmer, the time will be extended to two to three hours a day and by the time the Summer ends I will be ready to do all sorts of physical work - when I'll really have none that I care to do.

Finch Orders Study Of TV Violence WASHINGTON (NC)-A scientific study to determine whether televised crime and violence affects the mental health of the viewer has been ordered by Secretary Robert H. Finch of the Health, ~ Education and Welfare Department. Dr. William H. Stewart, surgeon general of the Public Health Service, will head the study. He will select about 15 psychologists, psychiatrists, sociologists, child development specialists and experts from related fields to make up the Surgeon General's Scientific Advisory Committee on Television and Social Behavior. The committee's report is expected in October, Finch said.

ST. PAUL (NC)-Recommendations for the improvement of religion teaching in Catholic high schools of Minnesota have been made by the state's Association of Religious Educators (ARE). The recommendations were released by Father John Forliti, ARE director and professor at Nazareth Hall Seminary, in conjunction with results of an ARE survey of religion programs jn the high schools. The recommendations call for a core of qualified religion teachers by 1970 in every Catholic high school in the state, including a chairman, a resource person - not necessarily the chairman-who has a degree in theology or religious education granted since 1963, and several teachers pursuing graduate work or in-service training in theology or religious education. The report additionally calls for each diocese to establish this year a continuing education fund to enable religion teachers to pursue full-time study in theology or religious education, or to pursue course work and inservice programs at local institu-

/What's Happened to Rain

Queries Barbara Ward By Barbara Ward

In the search for areas of common agreement and common action between the great Powers, we should not forget one iss:ue which, in the most total way imaginable, affects equally every being on this planet. This is the living envelope of air and water upon which all control to check their ill effects. _ all, we have no systems life on this planet depends. Above of genuine international cooperThe Bible tells us that God ation to ensure that one nation's

sends down His rain on the just and the unjust alike. But suppose the rain is full of radioac- . tive particles?' In one of the" most beautiful poems ever written, John Keats speaks of "* * * the moving waters at their priestlike task, . of pure ablution r a u n dEarth's human shores." But suppose the waters are choked with oil slicks and chiefly deposit on polluted beaches the massacred carcasses of birds and fishes? We think, naturally, of the winds of Earth as cleansing and invigorating forces. In fact, the image of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost is of a "mighty wind." But suppose these winds bring a freight of noxious fumes and killing gases and oUght the the fields and forests with poisons generated in neighboring industrial areas? This phenomenon is already observable in Sweden where the woods are attacked by industrial fumes blown over from Britain. Danger Signals In short, all round a world in which, so far, only a quarter of the economies are fully industrialized, in which science, applied to production, is not much more than a century old, we a!"e seeing the dan!ers signals of a sort of undercover chemical warfare which industrial man is waging against himself. • By the middle of the 21st century, when 90 per cent of the human race may live in cities and depend upon industry, when perhaps over half the world's energy will be nuclear energy, breeding massive radioactive wastes, is it not conceivable that our planet will be on the point of becoming barely habitable and gas masks will be what the., well-dressed citizen normally wears? We should not exaggerate. So far only one great lake - Lake Erie-may have been totally destroyed by the discharge of industrial wastes. Smog is still a phenomenon of only a few big cities. Perhaps only half our rivers are in some measure contaminated with untreated sewage and the casual draining off of pesticides and fertilizers. We are not yet within sight of global disaster. Yet the fact remains that the red lights are flashing. We are using chemicals and forms of energy on a new, vast and untested scale. Their use is increasing. We have no rules and no

delinqency may not completely blast its neighbors' health and wealth. It is for this reason that the Swedish government has proposed to the United -Nations a common study of these environmental dangers in preparation for a world conference which could establish the risks, lay down guidelines of policy, and seek to impose sanctions and inspection systems. Interests Converge Here, quite obviously, is an area in which the interests of all the nations, great and small, could be made to converge. Scientists of every race and ideol~ ogy are already deeply disturbed by the facts of pollution. In fact, in an exercise of citizen pressure rare in Soviet society, scientists were the leaders of an active lobby which persuaded the Soviet government to place restrictions on the expansion of paper industries on the shores of Lake Baikal. These operations were polluting the absolutely uncontaminated waters of this lake which has the deepest, purest fresh' water of any lake in the world and was beginning to go the tragic way of Lake Erie. But citizen pressure is needed everywhere if governments are to take seriously the efforts, to get the maintenance of environmental standards into the international domain. The conservationist movement needs more active support in all the developed countries and this is perhaps the time to suggest that citizens with Christian affiliations should be more active in this field. If one thing more than any other shines forth from the Bible, it is the wonder, beauty and majesty of the universe drawn from chaos under God's hand. The great mysteries of creation in Genesis, following so closely our- unfolding knowledge of the: .evolutionary process, are crowned with· the triumphant affirmation that God looked on His creation and found it goodlight and air, water and earth, seas and continents, trees and plants, all living, breathing, things, all of them good. We must keep them so. To defile and degrade them with filth and waste defiles and degrades the work of Ciod Himself. Could any concern have ,a more profoundly religious sense?

Pope Plans Visit To Switz·erland VATICAN CITY (NC)-Pope Paul VI will go to Geneva, Switzerland, in the first half of June at the invitation of the International Labor Organization (ILO), whic"h will be celebrating its SOth anniversary. He will also visit the headquarters of the World Council of Churches. Pape Paul made .the announcement at a general audience. He said that he had accepted the "unexpected" invitation with "humble gratitude." He called the ILO "such a deserving and representative international organism, so very congenial with our own mission of justice, of peace and of brotherhood." The International Labor Organization is an association of 108 nations designed to bring together representatives of government, labor and management to improve working conditions, raise labor standards and promote economic stability. It was established in 1919 as an autonomous associate of the League of Nations, and now is a specialized agency of the United Nations. An official of the Vatican Secretariat for Promoting Christian Unity said Pope Paul, through an aide, asked officials of the WCC if he might visit its headquarters while in Geneva, the answer wasan immediate yes.

Collegiality and Celibacy Canadian Bishops Topics

13

OTTAWA (NC) - Collegiality-sharing responsibility with bishops and lay people-is the primary concern of Canadian priests. They want that "teamwork" more than anything else. That was the primary point expressed as a national consensus by delegate priests from the En- terium - the whole body of priests. Somehow, that reality glish-speaking, regions of of the presbyterium, with the Canada, addressing a work- bishop as its head, has to come

shop of the Canadian Bishops' general assembly here. The celibacy issue ranked second among nine national concerns of Canadian priests. Others were experimentation -"a total openness" to establishing policies for orderly adaptation "in every aspect of pastoral life," according to Father Philip Hanley of Nanaimo, B. C.; research - sociological, psychological and through other social sciences; continuing education of priests as professional development; more useful deployment of clerical pesrsonnel across Canada (some areas have a surplus of priests while others are desperately short); spiritual life of priests, the role of diocesan priests' senates, and laicization procedures. On the last point, they asked for more prompt handling of cases in which men ask to be relieved of ministerial duties, and that the decision be left to national groups or even individ-ual bishops. Dialogue "Collegiality is number one," Father Hanley told a press conference. "The national consensus is that priests want collegiality right down the line. "We want to dialogue with the bishops on an on-going basis; we want'it on a diocesan level through the senate with the bishop, and among the priests of the diocese;" he added. Asked whether he agreed with that concept, Bishop Remi De Roo of Victoria, B.C., chief coordinator on behalf of the Canadian bishops on the dialogue among English-speaking priests, said: "I'm not only satisfied, but J think that since Vatican II a bishop cannot effectively govern his diocese without the presby-

Appoints B.ishop For Lithuanians WASHINGTON (NC) - Pope Paul VI has appointed Msgr. Anthony L. Deksnys, pastor of Immaculate Conception Church, East St. Louis, III., to be titular bishop of Lavellum with the task of providing for the spiritlial assistance of Lithuanians living in Western Europe. The appointment was announced :here bY\ jArchbishop Luigi Raimondi, Apostolic Delegate in the United States. Bishop-designate Deksnys was born in Buteniskis, Lithuania, May 9, 1906, the son of Stanislovas and Vinceslava Kiliute Deksnys, who now reside in East St. Louis. He attended elementary school in Onuskis, Lithuania, and high school and college at Rokiskis, Lithuania. He made his studies for the priesthood at the Metropolitan Seminary at Kaunas, Lithuania, and at the Theological and Philosophical Faculty at Vytautas the Great University, Kaunas. He was ordained May 30,1931, in SS. Apostles Peter and Paul Cathedral-Basilica, Kaunas. He made post-ordination studies in education, philosophy, sociology, ancient and medieval history at the University of Fribourg, Switzerland, taking a doctorate.

back into focus. On Celibacy Bishop De Roo said: "I make the distinction very clearly in my mind between ordaining married men (possibly) and allowing priests to marry. In the tradition of the Eastern Church married men have been ordained, generally, mature men. Some people just don't see the distinction, but I think it is very valid. When you see the Church accepting a tradition over a p.eriod of years it is rather irresponsible to wave it aside and say 'sociological conditioning.' We are talking about the.mystery of God here * '" * and the very nature of vocation. "We've got a hangup on democracy here in North America: we tend to think that everything should be democratic and that a majority vote establishes truth," he continued. "The priesthood is primarily a call from Christ * ,~ * the vocation does not come from the community," he said. "What comes from the community is the call to exercise it in a specific situation, and that (particular) exercise may cease at a certain time, by decision from both sides. But it is not for the community to decide, that the vocation ceases."

Toledo Cathol ics Support Schools TOLEDO (NC) - The diocese of Toledo now knows that the Catholics in these 19 northwestern Ohio 'counties testify to strong support for its schools. This substantiation came as part of the 85-page report of the census and survey program tc?ken last October and November when 17,000 volunteer enumerators called at 425 residences. The diocese engaged Census Management, Inc., Washington, in the joint effort that also revealed approval of liturgical changes, an awareness of social issues, some decline in religious views anc' practices. Bishop John A. Donovan, at a media conference announcing the results, said the near future will bring into being a diocesan council as a continuing opportunity for the people to inform him, through their council 'representatives, of their. thoughts on Church issues. He said: "Right now I feel that they have expressed themselves freely on Catholic schools, religious education, the liturgy, parochial administration and practices, social issues and so forth."

Cardinal to Attend Theology Discussion VILLANOVA (NC) - Bernard Cardinal Alfrink of Utrecht, the Netherlands, will be among the participants in a nine-day theology symposium to be held at Villanova University here, June 19 to 27, 'on the theme: "The Dynamic in Christian Action." Sponsored by the university's theology department, the symposium will feature scholars from this country and abroad.

College of Sister Formation to Close Curriculum Useless for Many SEATTLE (Nt)-The College of Sister Formation at Seattle University will close June I, ending 13 years of academic service. The announcement was made by Father John A. Fitterer, S.J., unive'rsity president, and Sister Alice' st. 'Hilaire, associate dean of the Sister Formation College. "The decision was reached after a long and careful study that had taken into consideration the strengths and weaknesses of the Sister Formation program,. the trends of postVatican II and projections of future enrollments," Sister Alice said. There are 32 students enrolled this year in the college, out of the university's total. coeducational enrollment of 3,678. The college last year numbered 121. Emphasis on Education "A decade ago emphasis was on a strong educational program for young Sisters coupled with withdrawal from the secular world." Sister Alice said. "The educational emphasis remains. But since Vatican II, it is now believed better for Sisters in training to be in contact with society rather than isolated for five to seven years." The Sister Formation College offered the degree of bachelor of

Fight on Poverty To Have Priority COCHIN (NC)-The new Indian cardinal has declared that poverty, illiteracy and disease will be the three fields that will engage his closest attention in future. Speaking here to more than 50 journalists invited for breakfast at his residence, Cardinal-designate Joseph Parecattil of Ernakulam ,said that in the campaign against poverty he has built houses for the' homeless and contributed his share 'for food self-sufficiency in' Kerala state. The prelate spoke after the president of the Kerala Union of Working Journalists, K. R. Ravi, described his elevation as an honor not only to Kerala but to all 'Indians.

arts in social 'science. "Formerly, the curriculum served practically all the students, since it was geared ,to incoming freshmen, which was the status of most candidates to the sisterhood," Sister Alice explained. "There is, however, an increasingly high percentage of those entering religious life who have completed some or all of their college work." It was recently found that more than one-third of the candidates to the religious life could not make use of the college's curriculum," she said. Copperating Communities Organized in 1956 as one of Seattle Oniversity's seven major academic units, the College of Sister Formation has a main campus on a 243-acre tract of land, Providence Heights, in a Seattle suburb. The college is conducted by Sisters of Charity of Providence in cooperation with the Sisters of St. Joseph of Newark in

Bellevue and Sisters of St. Dominic-Congregation of St. Thomas Aquinas in Tacoma and the Congregation of the Holy Cross in Edmonds. There are subsidiary campuses at Bellevue and Edmonds. The college's faculty consists of Sisters of the four cooperating women's religious communities, faculty members from the university's main campus and guest faculty. The student body is derived from the four cooperating communities together and also has guest students from other religous communities as far away as Uganda. ~

Semina.rian Outlines New Approach To Increase Black Voc'ations TECHNY (NC) - The image and symbolism of' a "white" priesthood has to be changed if the lack of priestly vocations. among black youths is to be remedied, according to Thomas James, S.V.D., 26, third year theologian at Divine Word Seminary here in Illinois. Addressing the Catholic Clergy Conference on the Interracial Apostolate in Pittsburgh, the seminarian opine<;l: "To further black vocations to the priesthood, we must gain the trust and confidence of young blacks with a whole new approach. First, we have to change the image of the Catholic priesthood," which is connected with befng white. He said the refusal of certain seminaries to accept black youths in the past "still has a psychological effect on black youths," who think that "joining the priesthood means selling one's self to the 'institutiQn.''' Second, the lack of leadership among black priests in the United States "has caused black youth to search elsewhere' to fulfill their potentials. They want to be leaders and to control communities, so they exclude the priesthood.' Third, since other avenues and opportunities have opened to black youth in which they may be accepted, "new symbolism must be found for the black priesthood," he suggested. Fourth, the sudden rise of black power has cJ'eated an awareness in black youth that they. do not have to accept the stereotypes presented in' the past. "Fifth," he continued, "we have to fully accept the fact

that separatism has also 'caused blacks to reject the thought of becoming priests in a 'white' church." . The last suggestion Mr. James made was that an attempt must be made to solve the identity crisis of blacks "which has made them wonder about the Christian principles that we teach. "If these principles of Christianity have not bettered the human condition in which the black man lives,' why should he join with the 'oppressors'? The Church is a white institution, and to become a priest, in short, is to become 'one of them.''' . He added that in spite of the factors mentioned, blacks realistically dream of more black vocations. But the recruitment has to be reorganized and new means tried, he believes. The special mission of a priest among black people will be to "free black men of their fears, he will break down separation with love; in short, he will help men to be human."

.Romance or Routine?- II

This thought was echoed recently in a letter we received from a missionary bishop in South Africa. "To build a new church, to found a new school, to open a new mission hospital is exciting and romantic," he wrote. "Not nearly so romantic is. meeting the bills for the feeding and clothing of the Mission Fathers, Brothers, and Sist~rs, or keeping the overworked mission vehicles on the road." Both Thomas Merton and the Bishop in Africa have stated that real dedication to the Christian ideal is not always fashionable or glamorous. More often than not, our attempts to live the Christian life end up in the nitty-gritty business of personal sacrifice on behalf of others. And there is nothing glamorous about daily self-sacrifice! ' Honeymoons do not last forever. Many a young missionary has learned soon enough that the initial excitement and charm of mission life soon give way to day by day routine. He must learn a new language, adapt to a new culture, develop new eating habits. He must walk miles in blazing heat to visit sick, villagers. He must help out in the dispensary,' its walls bursting with crying children. He must, with patience, train "a team of catechists who will eventually assist him in his work of spreading the gospel. But, above all, the missionary must be available to the people, open to the people, 2nd willing to learn from them. This daily 'routine does not lessen the nobility of the missionary's calling. Rather, it raises his vocation to a new levelthat of. persevering and dedicated service to others. This is our calling, too. As Christians we must accept the challenge of day to day living. We must be willing to sacrifice for others each and lilvery day of our lives. For it is in this seeming routine of daily sacrifice that ·we will find our reward. Send your sacrifice TODAY!

' dent of the St. Augustine Foundation which erected the votive church and the Beacon of Faith cross at the shrine, told an assembly of pilgrims: "Seeking change for the sake of change is indicative of a lack of faith rather than a lively faith." He also admonished: "We have developed a wrong notion of the meaping of cp,allenge." Discussing challenge, Msgr. Heslin asserted: "There is challenge in keeping the Ten Commandments: challenge in entering a holy marriage and staying married; un路 limited challenge in serving God as a priest or in religoius life for a lifetime. Great, Dedication "Perseverance in the priesthood and religious life today, evidently calls not merely for ordinary dedication but for great dedication."

They had undergone untold hardships and yet their faith was undimmed. We visualize them as gallant men with a stable, manly faith," the monsignor said. In contrast to conditions today, he declared: "Somehow we do not think of them as Catholic men who continuaHy sought change for the sake of change in their religious practice.

"Many problems confront the Church today and unfortunately 'many of these problems are internal. In the present age, we have become so crisis conscious that if a crisis does not already exist, then some feel they must create one," he said.

Challenge refers to the quality of any and every action rather than to its size," he said. "Undoubtedly Father Lopez and his fellow countrymen faced well nigh insurmountable problems as they tried to plant the cross of Christ in the New World. Beginnings are never easy. However I venture to say that the problems that confrontea them were external rather than internal ones,"

Arnold Toynbee, the British historian and philoso. pher, who celebrated his 80th birthday in London on April 14, believes that the American "dream" has failed.

Father Hesburgh addressed an international conference on "The Task of Universities in a Changing World," held at Notre Dame's Center for Continuing Education.

Father Hesburgh warned against confusing the capabilities of students, faculty and administrators. Public Domain He also said trustees and alumni have contributions to make to the university community because "the university is in the public. domain whatever its sponsorship, public or private, and the trustees and alumni best represent the public of each university."

Humanism Father Hesburgh defended the traditional university heritage of humanism. "Values loom high in any assessment of university wisdom, and values are best manifested by the priorities that characterize the univerSity enterprise," he said. "I would hope that the universities might look to the ultimate realities that humanize all human concerns, and these are basically philosophical and theological concerns," he stated.

Says Hadrian th'e

Plan Testimonial For Chor-Bishop

Seve~th

Fantastic, Capricious Novel By Rt. Rev. Msgr. John S. Kennedy, The most spectacular performance on Broadway just now is that of Alec McCowen in the title role of Hadrian VII. In the Summer, a second company, headed by Hume Cronyn, will begin a national tour. This curious play, in ' which an English layman is, elected to the Papacy and ficulties, but the Cardinal of Pimlico has cOJ)1e up with a and turns the Chureh upside- solution. . down, is based on a curious Rose, once in Rome, finds that novel which was first published 65 years ago. Because of the success of the play, the novel, after languishing in obscurity for decades, is now re-issued in paperback: Had ria n the Seventh by Frederick Rolfe (Ballantine Books, 101 Fifth Street, New York, N.Y. 10003, plus postage, 95 cents). Rolfe who sometimes took to himself the title Baron Corvo, was born in London in 1860, the son of Anglican parents. He became a' Roman Catholic, and sought to be a priest, only to be dismissed from, the seminary each time he had succeeded in gaining admission. He was a cranky, gifted oddity, who tried his hand at teaching, painting, writing, He never knew success, struggled along in penury, was a waspish enemy and had enemies as waspish. His later years he spent in Italy, and he died in Venice in 1913, penni-less. George Arthur Rose is the name under which Rolfe appears in his novel. Rose is an artist and' writer who lives In the garret of a London boarding house. He is a convert to Catholicism, who for 20 years has been intent on becoming a priest. He knows this to be his vocation, and he is inflexible in pursuing it. Treated Shabbily He has been thwarted by dishonest and tricky <:hurchmen, who have ousted him from seminaries on flimsy pretexts or without explanation. 0 the r 'churchmen have cheated him and libelled him as he has tried to make a living. In fact, the English Catholic body has treated him shabbily, and he now takes delight in paining these co- ~ religionists of his. Suddenly he is summoned from his garret to the boarding' house parlor. Respectfully awaiting him there are the Cardinal Archbishop of Pimlico and the Bishop of Caerleon, both of whom he had known unhappily, in earlier times. They question him minutely about himself and his aspiration to the' priesthood, and propose that he be ordained almost immediately, putting at his disposition a large sum of money which is not only to pay his debts but also to recompense 'him for injustice and injury done him by them 'and their kind. He agrees. He then finds ,himself called to Rome. The papal throne has been vacant for a long time. The cardinals in conclave have been unable to produce a successor to Leo XIII, and have finally chosen the method of compromise. This means that the college selects a small group of its number which will work out the problem and name a new pope. The group. too, has had its dif-

the solution is his own election to the papal throne. He is scarcely fazed by this development. Accepting the decision, he is immeqiately in full command, and signalizes radical change by ordering that the central window overlooking St. Peter's square be unbricked, so that he may there give his first blessing to the city and the world. He thus breaks with the tradition, in force since the fall of the Papal States in 1870, that a new pope gives his blessing , within the basilica. This is only the beginning. He is crowned on the steps of St. Peter's (as Paul VI was to be in 1963); he has the old papal villa at Castelgandolfo reopened and goes to live there periodically (as Pius XI was. to do after 1929); he sallies forth into Rome and visits almost casually (as John XXIII was to begin doing in 1958). Imperious, he enters into combat with those functionaries in the Church whose ideas he sees as outmoded or deformed, and whose methods he believes to be damaging. They are vanquished. He keeps hammering away at the idea that the Church and churchmen are meant to serve. Hadrian directs that all the Vatican treasures be sold. Enormous' sums are realized, and they are put' into works immensely beneficial to the social order of the world. He himself lives in undecorated and com. fortless quarters, refuses to wear lace, smokes a cigarette whenever he likes. Glorifies Kaiser The sovereigns and presidents of the great powers turn to him to settle the rivalries and contentions which threaten war. He accepts the role of Supreme Arbitrator and decrees a new Roman Empire under two emperors, with Wilhelm II of Ger. many as emperor over his own country, Russia, Austria, France, etc., and' Victor Emmanuel III as emperor over Italy, Spain, Portugal, Greece;. much of the Balkans, etc. He also rearranges the rest of the world (with the United States annexing South America). All this in the first year of his pontificate! This quite unexampled novel is fantastic in many senses: imaginative and imaginary, extravagant, eccentric, capricious. The style is elaborate ("The arrows of' cardinalitial eyes impinged upon him; and glanced off the ice of his mail".) Words polysyllabic, obsolete, or invented for the occasion abound ("dicaculous descriptions,", "delirious onomatopes," "Hendescasyllabic allocutions," "fumicables"-Le.. cigarettes). Rolfe detested Socialism, glorified Kaiser Wilhelm as a great man,' made predictions which failed to materialize. He paid off old scores ruthlessly in his book. A homosexual miasma pervades much of it. It is a literary freak,. yet it has inner vitality and, in some respects, a quality of prophecy.

. SPOKESMEN: On the subjects of Catholic schools and the church in the cities, spokesmen at the NCCB meeting in Houston were Auxiliary Bishop William E. McManus, left, ,of Chi'cago, and Cardinal-designate John J. Wright, Bishop of Pittsburgh, 'who compare notes on their talks to the assembled bishops and newsmen covering the meeting. NC Photo.

Positive and Realistic Continued from Page One He spoke of the long range ,effectiveness of some of the actions 'and referred specifically to the guidelines given for theological training of candidates for the priesthood. "It represents a very substantial updating of theological training they will receive. . . The long range result will be reflected in the generation of priests ahead." Asked whether he believed schism is imminent at all or within the forseeable future in the U. S. Church, Archbishop Dearden ,said: "I think we have reason for great optimism. We began with a very strong religious faith. The Church in the U. S. had 'a vigor quite outstanding among all churches throughout the world: This is something strong on which to build. In this strength, while tensions will undoubtedly occur, I do not think they are ' of such nature we could ,look for anything that would be a schism." Report ,on Biafra Newsmen asked him about the possibility of making bishops' meetings more open to the press. ' He said: "We would not have the same open, unhindered and blunt dialogue we have in a meeting closed to our own membership. We have achieved this to a very high degree." Auxiliary Bishop Edward E. Swanstrom of New York, executive director of Catholic Relief Services, gave a brief report on aid to Biafra, pointing out that American Catholics had contributed almost $3 million by April 12 for aid to Nigeria and Biafra. He said the total value of aid provided victims on both sides of. the civil war was more than $7.5 million. He asked the bishops to urge their people to pray for a ceasefire that will end . "this dreadful holocaust." Cardinal-designate Terence J. Cooke of New York suggested encouragement of some lowkeyed education program to point out the advantages taxexempt institutions and churches

provide society, and to condemn abuses by such tax-exempt organizations. Youth's Attitude Bishop McManus in his talk said: "The most serious problem presently facing the Church in education . . . is youth's negative attitude toward the Church." He noted that "the Church in education will be heard mainly by those to whom it h'as listened." He added: "We hear disturbing reports that youth is losing confidence in the Church as an institution. . . . Present day rumbles of unrest may be only a prelude to a roar of rebellion by a whole generation of young people." "A renewed and radically restructured apostolate to the young is imperative.... Youth's problems with the Church are honest and open... '.Their present attitude is to wait and see whether they will' remain with the Church. They will remain, I believe, if we can persuade them that in Church and by Church they will be heard," he said. Schools Crisis He said the question uppermost for many people is, do the bishops intend to continue ele~ mentary and secondary schools. He referred to the November., 1967, bishops" statement that "we therefore will do our part to continue, improve and strengthen these schools,'.' and said it merits reaffirmation at this time. "Worst of all, we find that in this time of national properity, when Catholic families as a group have moved up the economic ladder, weekly contributions - the mainstay of parish school support-are diminishing in many parishes." He added, "Unwillingness to donate it" is suspected as the cause. The main crisis, he said, is "a crisis of confidence in the Catholic school's future," which confronts the wholeChurch-bishops, clergy, Religious and laity._ "Together, all in the Church must help schools survive this crisis."

Parishion~rs of sf Anthony of the Desert Church, Fall River, will honor their pastor, ChorBishop Joseph Eid, for 40 years service at a testimonial Sunday, June 8 at Venus deMiio restaurant. Honorary co-chairmen for the event are Bishop Francis M. Zayek, Maronite Exarch for the United States, and Sen. Edward M. Kennedy. General chairman for the parish is Michael S. Sahady, aided by a large committee. , The program will begin at 10:30 Sunday morning with a concelebrated Mass at whiCh Bishop Zayek will preside. The banquet will follow at 1 o'clock. Blessed Sharbel Chor-Bishop Eid has served in Fall River since 1929 and for 17 years also served as pastor of Our Lady of Purgatory Church in New Bedford. For years he has been closely associated with the cause for canonization of Blessed Sharbel Makhlouf, Hermit of Lebanon. He recalls as a high point of his life attendance at beatification ceremonies for the holy man at St. Peter's in Rome and he is now hopeful that the process of canonization will be completed in the near future. The Fall River pastor is also active in the cause of Father Jacob, another Lebanese monk outstanding for virtue. St. Anthony of the Desert parish is attached to the Maronite Exarchate for the United States, rather than to the Fall River Diocese, but close ties are maintained with the Diocese and Bishop Connolly wrote to Chor'Bishop Eid in connection with the forthcoming testimonial: "I congratulate you on your long and distinguished record in reli-, gious路'and public or community 'matters. I pray God may continue you for years to come as a faithful servant of your people, guiding them along the paths that lead to God, and bring them assurance of final blessedness in the abode of the just." Proceeds of the testimonial will benefit a fund to construct a Fall River shrine and chapel dedicated to Blessed Sharbel and a school for needy children in Chor-Bishop Eid's native district of Mozraat-En-Dahr, Lebanon.

It's a long way from the Bristol County League to the majors but Blaine Young is headed in that direction. The former Bishop Stang baseball standout is currently on the Jamestown, N. Y. roster in the Ne\y York-Pennsylvania League where he is listed as a pitcher. This is the second year of professional ball for youthful Young who made his debut last season after being selected by the Boston Red Sox in the annual major league player draft in June. Blaine was the only performer in Southeastern Massachusetts to be drafted. . After a shaky start the lanky left hander settled down and pitched steady ball the rest of the campaign. He was so effective that he was inyited back for another season. Young got his "break" shortly after he had pitched the Spartans to a share of the Bristol County League championship when he was signed by Red Sox scout Wilfred "Lefty" Lefebvre of Seekonk. On June 19 former Stang innings compiling a 1.03 earned baseball coach Gerry Hickey run average in posting a 4-1 recmade the announcement that . ord. His victories came .over Blaine would depart for James- Taunton and Feehan, both of town the following day.

"Blaine always had excellent control," said Hickey. "He has a good fast ball and excellent curve and should develop into an excellent pitcher." If Bhiine has a fault it's in the control department where he has a tendency to be wild in the early goings. Hickey worked on the problem with his southpaw slinger and the control improved greatly over the second half of his senior campaign. "If he can lick that small problem, there's no doubt in my mind that he can be a big league hurler," beamed Hickey. Young is the s~m of Harry Leon Young, 140 Bridge Street, Fairhaven and is a member of St. Joseph Parish. In addition to his baseball career at Stang, he was an excellent footbalI player and track man. As a member of Coach Charlie Connell's gridders Young was a top notch pass receiving end and defensive safety, earning All-Bristol County honors in both departments. Young has expressed interest in continuing his schooling and would like to attend Bristol Community College in the "offseason." Although he enjoys all sports, Young is restricted during the Summer months. Instead of swimming, surfing and just plain sunning, he's devoting all of his attention to one thing ,~ * ,;, baseball. He and a lot of other people are hoping it will eventually lead to a trip to Boston.
