dear. aging relative, to uncertain care. We rest better, knowing they are comfortable, living out their memories in an atmosphere of religion, with devoted sisters and nurses and chaplains in attendance. So much is the .insistence on our type of service that we have expanded constantly, and are now planning definitely a new Home for the Aged on Cape Cod. Another happy feature of Catholic Charities is the education and care given the Mentally Retarded in three separate Nazareths. It is a joy to see these youngsters grow in confidence, wIth the help of dedicated Sisters of Mercy. Many have been the blessings of God to the families and friends of these children. The work carries its own reward. The Diocese has plans in preparation for a new Nazareth, to be erected near Bishop Feehan High School. It should be functioning in the Fall. There are easily 80 children unprovided for in that area. We turn to another need that grows in intensity. I refer to emotional disturbance in Children. Our Homes have done well. But the problem grows to a point of separation. Last summer, we set up a Camp in Mashpee on the Cape to provide necessary relaxation for some from St. Vincent's Home in Fall River. But these children need a type of more prolonged care. St. Vincent's Home is not adequate for demands put on it. Teachers and supervisors are excellent. But the building is worse for wear. So we have a new St. Vincent's on the planning board. It will consist of several separate dormitory buildings, school, recreational hall, chapel, convent and -administrative center. Provisions will be made for up to 80 children, one third of them needing special care. Costs will be considerable, but we have a valuable industrial site to sell, once we move St. Vincent's to Highland Avenue, Fall River. By 1970, the transfer will take place.

Very few dioceses have the recreational facilities that we have. Nature has provided us with the seashoreand lakes. Among these are Cathedral Camps- for boys and girls, and the St. Vincent de Paul sponsored camp for the mentally retarded in \Vestport, and another giving care to over 100 boys weekly each summer. In the cities we have C.Y.O. organizations and centers. These are supported by Charity campaigns. Many parishes have been building local centers which provide activities and religious instruction for youth. ' Behind, and implementing many of our charities are the two Catholic Welfare Bureaus, the Family Life Bureau, and the diocesan guilds for the deaf and blind. We are all concerned about preserving our best Christian traditions in the Home. If we are taken up alone with our troubles, it is not too likely that a home be a happy one. The whole Diocese, the whole area is a family, with common concerns. ,The best joy in life comes not so much from what is done for us, as from what we do for those in need. The Diocese acts as our instrument in tending 31 separate services for the disadvantaged.: Every one of these helps avert, or solve problems affecting our neighbors, even ourselves. Surely we should be wise. and practical in supporting them.

A unique scholarship open to a boy who will agree to serve Mass once weekly during the term of the award has been donated to Bishop Connolly High School, Fall路 River, by Mrs. George E. Sullivan Jr. in memory of her mother, Mrs. Thomas J. Mahan. To be known as the Mary Harrington Mahan Scholarship for Altar Boys, the award was envisioned by Mrs. Mahan before her death as a means of encouraging boys to continue serving on the altar during their teen years. "My mother always regretted that so many boys stop serving as soon as they enter high school," said Mrs. Sullivan, a member of Sacred Heart parish, Fall River. The scholarship will be awarded this month by Connolly school authorities, and interested boys may apply to the principal's office. -

Denies American Military Men Promote War NEW LONDON (NC)

Fighting men in. Vietnam are praying for peace like millions of nonl-combatants throughout the world, according to Cardinal-designate Terence J. Cooke, military vicar of the U.S. armed forces, who recently visited the Naval Submarine Base and the United States Coast Guard Academy here. "Certain elements have tried to accuse the American military men of promoting war," the New York prelate said. "Nothing could be further from the truth. Military men and their families most earnestly desire peace in this troubled world." He added that the morale of U.S. fighting men in Vietnam is high. His sermon at the Chapel on. the Thames, Submarine Base, also concerned what he called the "unique and wonderful" spirit of the military family. He praised the steadfastness and devotion of military families, and noted the sacrifice of loneiness when duty keeps the serviceman and his family apart. Family Affair Military service "is an entire family affair which affects and encompasses" wives and children, the military vicar said. Following the Mass, which he concelebrated with the four Catholic chaplains assinged to the area, Archbishop Cooke greeted submarine men and their families for almost an hour at the side of the chapel. It was his first official visit to a military installation since being designated a cardinal.

A Cry for Help I

The Great Depression of the 1930's has been over for quite a while now. No one who lived in and through. it regrets its passing. From the distance of years, however, one can see that it did have some advantages. It gave many people a real idea of what need it. It is a realization that one cannot forget. As .the Catholic Charities Appeal begins its hoilseto-house phase, those who lived in the Depression have only to remember to feel a stirring of consCience and to be impelled to answer the cry of need. The call for help may come from a retarded child who could learn about God if oniy someone would teach him; from an aged person who asks only that the autumn years be spent in dignity; from a hung-up youth seeking answers to his problems; from an incurably sick person asking relief from pain; from an unwed mother looking for and a chance to. begin again. There are answers to all these calls for help. The Catholics of the Diocese of Fall River are providing the answers thr:.ough their many agep.cies of welfare. They support these agencies with their monies and with the help of their non-Catholic neighbors and friends who do not let a cry for need fall on deaf ears. Those who lived through the Depression have no' necessity ot being reminded of the desperation that so easily enters into lives when there seems to be no one to care. and to help. . Those who never knew a Depression must try to translate the theoretical idea of poverty into the fact that it is - the fact that many people are poor either economically or emotionally or spiritually. And these . need help. The opportunity to help is now upon us. Those who know from experience what poverty of any kind is can now rise to the challenge of another's cry for help. Those who have little or no first-hand experience of ,poverty of any kind must try to capture within them: selves the plight of a neighbor in need and with' gratitude Ifor their own fortunate condition reach out to help. less fortunate brother.

Swedi5h Parliament Rejects Deduction STOCKHOLM (NC) The Swedish parliament has again refused to make contributions for religious, cultural and other similar purposes tax deductible. This means that the Church in this country will continue to face serious financial difficulties. Bishop John E. Taylor of Stockholm has claimed that, in comparison with the' economically secure position of the Lutheran state church, "the Catholic Church in Sweden seems extremely ill treated." In January, the Illinois-born bishop said that it "seems absurd that contributions to the Catholic Church are not tax deductible, whereas the church tax paid by State Church members is deductible from their other taxes."

Leaders Negotiate With Guerrillas CARACAS (NC)-Church authorities in Venezuela are actively backing a government move to bring peace to the country by negotiating with communist guerrilla leaders. They have asked the guerrillas to surrender in exchange for certain guarantees and a stepped-up effort at social reform. . Guerrilla leaders, however, are adding the condition that Venezuela resume diplomatic relations with Fidel Castro's Cuban government. This counterproposal has met with strong opposition from some p.olitical and business circles here. Guerrilla warfare, which started in 1961 after Venezuela broke relations with Cuba, has become more intense and widespread.

Role of Priests Canadian Clergy to Beg~n Preparation Of Joint Message OTTAWA (N C) - There was no easy reply Canadian bishops could make to problems and needs stated by delegations of priests at Ottawa last week. "To simply agree or disagree would have been facile, too easy," said Bishop G. Emmett Carter of London, Onto What they did announce, rather vaguely, was that they and their priests would begin jointly "preparing a message to the People of God in Canada" concerning the problems and positive aspects of the priesthood. "We are not able to present the message today," Archbishop Maurice Baudoux of St. Boniface, Man., said, "because we wish to prepare it in consultation with priests and laity." They went home from Ottawa to consult their senates of priests 'and diocesan pastoral councils where they exist; to plan regional meetings, join the priests and bring in lay persons to assist in developing a positive role of the priest in contemporary Canadian society. The message will be developed in sections, and released in sections. To People of God "A committee of priests will make concrete proposals for consultation with suggestions as to how problems can be discussed, first with priests and then with laity," Archbishop James Hayes of Halifax said. The statement won't be a pastoral letter, but rather "a statement· from all priests to the whole People of God." As for the half-day meeting

between bishops and delegations of priests, Bishop Carter said: "We were delighted with the meeting. We know and agree that there must be more dialogue at every level. "We appreciate what these men came to tell us. They are not wild revolutionaries; they are responsible, hard-working men who are encountering new tensions and difficulties." In that context, he said he hoped the in-depth discussion of collegiality scheduled for the Synod of Bishops in Rome, next October would result in greater flexibility for decision at the national level. "We cannot freeup unless we are freed-up," Bishop Carter said. "Nobody wants to take away the Holy Father's prerogatives," he added, "but the way things are today it is impossible to have everything centralized. We have to have greater freedom to decide issues at the local level."

UNITED NATIONS (NC) News of Pope Paul's visit to the International Labor Organization in Geneva on the occasion of the agency's 50th anniversary has been greeted with pleasure at the United Nations, according to Msgr. Alberto Giovanetti, permanent observer of the Holy See to the UN. Asked to comment on the Pope's ILO visit, Msgr. Giovanetti said it was "deeply significant that the honor of receiving and hearing the Holy Father had come to the oldest of the UN's specialized agencies and the one concerned with the problems which are a determining factor in the international community's search for peace based on justice." This is the Pope's second visit to a UN body. The first was his address to the UN General Assembly on Oct. 4, 1965. This second visit, according to Msgr. Giovanetti, underlines "not only the interest and sympathy with which the Holy See follows the activities of the UN but also a concrete readiness to place at its service the means available to the Catholic Church to translate the' action to high ideals of the charter. This was also the desire of Vatican Council 11."

Wonders Why Kids Do,n't

Play As They Used, T'o By Marilyn Roderick This afternoon I responded to Marilyn's "Why don't you wrestle with Jason for a while?" by taking him for a walk. We were out for about an hour and I took him to a small woods where I had played as a boy. The path into the woods was barely visible and it was either that or they had cleaner quite obvious that it 'really dirt.) The moment I finish washing isn't used to any extent to- the kitchen floor (which even day. Jason was particularly pleased at playing Indian 'and we blazed a trail together, built a little campfire (10 leaves and two or three twigs) and had a thorough good time. Back in the thirties when the WPA was active they did a great deal of work f.or one. of the publicly owned cemeteries, doing such things as building walls and clearing land. They depositeq a number of large rocks in the little woods where we went today, and my little friend and I spent endless hours making a "fort "with -them. From this fort, which must have been 25 feet in diameter, we played many of our games: run-sheep-run, capture the flag, cowboys and Indians and any number of our adaptations. Today the fort is -just a pile of rocks scattered here and there with only a faint resemblance to what it was. Where Are They? As I talked and walked with Jason, I couldn't help but woncler where the little fort-makers of today are. This is stlll a marvelous place to play. There are no cars, no intruding adults, no particular dangers and yet the place is obviously not used. The same is true for this whole area where I was brought up. A few more houses have been added, more land has been cleared, but many.of the places we played in as children' are untouched and' remain essentially the same. This is not just nostalgia. Certainly in my area there are no more playgrounds or special facilities than when we were children. But it seems to me we had a basketball hoop on every post, and touch footabll, kick the can, stickball or some other game going every night in the streets. I can understand the opposition of parents to str'eet play but I cannot understand my "fort" being allowed to fall apart. I suppose children have tele- ' vision and more homework today than I-had, but it does seem a pity that they obviowdy do so little playing. Not only is it good for them but I am sure it would offer parents a little relief as well! In the Kitchen Spring cleaning time is here. -As the weather gets balmier the majority of us take a long hard lookt at our Winter weary houses and feel like throwing our hands up in despair. But said hands are needed very bad- ly to tackle the discouraging job of making order out of chaos. Gone are the days when our gl'andmothers:an d mothers would devote .one week each Spring and Fall to ripping their houses apart from stem to stern and then setting them back in "apple pie" condition to shine for the remainder -of the year. First of all, my house never shines, not even, the instant I get through cleaning it. (There must have be'en a shortage of children in the good old days;

at that second wouldn't get the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval) Melissa or Jason brings a small army trooping through it : . . '. . this of course after they've had troop maneuvers in our muddy back yard. Or it's just the day the rug returns from the cleaners that Jason gets a new supply of Playdoh (the creator of this sculpturing medium must have a deepseated hatred -for mothers and by whipping up this multicolored, mess he's gettting back at us all.) However, the most basic reaf;on I can find that we don't clean is that we just don't have the time, especially those of us who work. When we do get a week off many of us would rather spend it in more recreational pursuits tha'n closet cleaning, window washing or paint wiping. Clean Windows Anyway This year I thought I woiJld be very smart and hire some windo'w washers to tackle a job that I never seem to get around to. Oh, every year Joe starts off with great intentions to help me do this'job but one thing and another turns up and in the end' Summer rolls around and I still have about half my windows unwashed. Finally I convinced myself that the -hired washers were the perfect solution, and they were to a certain extent, only I think they threw the dirty water on my kitchen floor, my living room rug now needs to go to the cleaner's, after they trooped over it with muddy feet, and I spent the remainder of the afternoon putting the furniture back that they had moved not' replaced (including our heavy of'fice-type typewriter that I found sitting in the middle of my bed). Pride in workmanship surely is on the wane as the demand for it increases. However, I have clean' windows all around the house for once, and all it has cost me is the price of a good cotton dress. Yes, Spring is here with its seductive weather, activities a mile long, and the demands of a much lived-in house.

Academy Award Program Hits New Low In Taste


LONDON (NC)-Britain's permissive abortion laws, though hardly a year old, are, already beginning to cause considerable concern in Parliament and the press. London has suddenly become the "abortion capital of the world" and the financial racket that has developed since the back-street abortionists moved into main street has become a public scandal. British National Health Service hospitals, already too few and too understaffed to cope with the normal medical needs of a welfare state community, cannot handle the queue for free abortions now being sought. Private nursing homes, reported to be charging between $360 and $480 for a service often involving only a feV' hours' care, are booming. The medical/profession is split. over the issue with the majority of doctors, including many general practitioners, apparently opposed to the principle of abortion at the passing of the controversial bill last year are being fulfilled. The next step, legalized euthanasia, has already had a first skirmish in Parliament. Its supporters, backed by many of the same influential humanists and radical intellectuals look determined to battle on until they succeed.

If anyone ever had any doubts about the lack of taste that inhabits the Hollywood scene, these doubts would have been laid to rest by viewing last week's Academy Awards presentation, on TV. Poor taste abounded, garishness was the byword and a young Russian would admit to coiffuring Miss Wood's wild looking mane or actress dressed in a simple Miss Fonda's curly. top that white gown looked better by showed a deep dark root line every time she bent over to open an envelope. New Image This year the Oscar presentation was supposed to have a new image. Gower Champion took over as director and he did attempt to cut down on a lot of the extra awards that only interest those who are involved. He got stuck with a few tuneless songs and a couple of even more tuneless singers, but on the whole he did upgrade the show into a more palatable presentation than ever before. Like all curious women, and a confirmed movie watcher to boot, I'm sure I'll tune in again next year with the same sense of eager anticipation only to be disappointed at Hollywood's lack of style. Also, to further show that one never. learns, I plan -to curl up and watch the Toni awards later this eve~ing, hoping that New York will have a little more class.

far, than many of the overlydaring American cinema stars. Barbra Streisand would have "walked away" with the award for the actress with the most vulgar outfit if such an award had been given. She didn't look bad sitting down but when she walked up on stage to receive her Oscar I'm sure viewers across the country did a double take.

Reasons for Unrest Speakers at Symposium Discuss Upheaval In Contemporary Society CALDWELL (NC)-Rapid urbanization, the population increase, affluence, the "generation gap" and the updating now going on in the Catholic Church were cited as reasons behind the current unrest in America at a symposium on "Upheaval in Contemporary Society" at Caldwell College for Women here in New Jersey. The program was sponsored by the college, conducted by the Dominican Sisters, and brought experts in the fields of history, political science, education, theology and sociology to the compus. They examined student, religious, cultural and political unrest. Setting the tone for the program was David Shannon, history professor at Rutgers University, New Brunswick, N.J., who said unrest is surfacing because in the past discontent had been smothered by more pressing matters. Not since before World War I has unrest been so rampant, he said. "Due to Wodd War '1, the Depression, World War II and the cold war, both government and society have squelched" the possibility of large-scale dissent

Dominican Sees End of Present School System DETROIT (NC)-A Dominican priest said here "the Catholic schools system in

the United States as we have known it for generations. is now becoming a thing of the past." Father Charles Fiorf1, O.P., of the Aquinas Institute of Philosophy, River Forest, Ill., said school closings, consolidations and the increasing economic burdens of educational institutions will result in fewer but better schools "as a result of improved use of personnel and facilities and less duplication of effort." "As proportionally fewer Catholic children are educated,' within the system,' the need for adult· or continuing theological education for Catholics, which is already great in post-Vatican II transitional times, will become of par!lmount importance within the next two decades," he predicted. Father Fiore, who is provincial director of Adult Education and Communications for the Chicago province of the Dominicans, addressed member:s of the Dominican Educational Association, meeting-here. More Adaptable The priest emphasized he is not predicting the death of the Cat.holic school system. "There will always be a place for the Catholic schools, simply because they will fill a need-the inculcation of supernatural values as well as human-which public education cannot now provide under current interpretations of the 'establishment of religion' clause of the American Constitution, "he said. Yet "the Catholic educational complex is now evolving before our eyes," Father Fiore continued. "It will be more flexible and adaptable to divergent needs' than ever before ,~ * ;' it will become what a private educational system * ;~ * should be: the educator of a talented elite for the sake of the masses. "All of our commitments as Catholic educators at every: level and at every locale, must be weighed in terms of our society's needs, and the best use of Catholic schools and programs in doing what others cannot or will not do." Wave of Future .Adult religious education is the "the wave of the future," Father Fiore stated, becl\use "now as never before adults positively want and are demanding a specifically adult knowledge of the faith and theology, in order to integrate it into a specifically adult emotional and intellectual response to the faith. Both of these are legitimate felt-needs of adult Catholics," he said. Father Fiore urged Dominican educators to devote more of their personnel and facilities to programs of adult .theological education, without "making the same mistakes as with the parochial school system so that each parish has its own pro. gram of adult education. That is wasteful, unnecessary and, for many, impossible," he said,

Urges Legislature to Pass Migrant· Bills Cites Farm Workers' Deplorable Condition LANSING (NC) "People would not enjoy their 'vegetables and fruits if· they really knew the anguish, sweat and tears they cost farm workers to get the food on the table at a low. price." So said Warrington S. Parker, director of the Community Affairs Department of the Michigan Catholic Conference (MCC), at a public hearing on migrant legislation. "We all seem to be concerned about keeping the price of food down but how many of us consider what the farm workers get in return?" Parker asked the House Labor Committee. A migrant worker, Parker said, receives about: One-third of a cent for each head of lettuce that retails for 39 cents a head. 1.2 cents for a 10-pound bag of potatoes that retails for 69 cents. One-half cent for each pound of tomatoes that retails for 29 cents. . Four-tenths of a cent per pound for asparagus that retails for 39 cents a pound. ' Seven-tenths of a cent per pound for sweet cherries that retail for 49 cents a pound: One and one-half cents per

five-pound bag of apples that retail for 69 cents. ·Parker said the 80,000 migrant farm workers who come to Michigan each year to harvest the state's crops are confronted with substandard living conditions, low wages, little job security, inadequate educational opportunities, and no bargaining rights. "The farm workers' life style, income level and their i,!ability to represent their needs in Michigan are without a doubt one of the most deplorable conditions in this state," he said. "Is it necessary that migrants remain underpaid and secondclass citizens until they organize and strike? Do they h~ve to

WASHINGTON (NC) - The Georgetown University student discipline board has suspended for ·one year a student who admitted helping to disrupt a speech by Mayor Joseph Alioto 'of San Francisco in March. The student, Edward Galloway, a senior from Lake Wales, Fla., admitted running across the stage and knocking over alect.ern at which Alioto was standing. He also admitted disconnecting amjcrophone. The incident culminated in a wild brawl during which Alioto himself was hit by a punch and grazed by a falling microphone. The Mayor eventually delivered his lecture, on "Law and the Campus," to small group of persons in the .Jesuit dining hall. The student body later apologized to Alioto for the incident. Georgetown' officials said at the time the disruption largely was attributed to outside elements and members of the campus chapter of the militant Students for a Democratic Society. During his hearing, Galloway read from an SDS flyer which detailed the group's reas'ons for opposing the speech by Alioto. The SDS literature attacked the Mayor for criticizing campus disruptions at San Francisco State. The discipline board is comprised of five stu'dents, four faculty members and one person from the university administrative staff.

Wycislo disclosed here that a nationwide survey among clergy, Religious and laity will be conducted later this year in a project which eventually may result in a shakeup of the time-honored observances of holy days in this nation. The poll, it was indicated, would incorporate such questions as: Should Ascension Thursday be observed on a Sunday? Should attendan'ce at Mass be "equired on New Year's Day, Jan.

Joseph O'Neil of St. Paul, author of the reimbursement bill, and John Markert, executive director of the Minnesota Catholic Conference, told house and senate education committees the proposal would be constitutional according to U.S. Supreme Court standards applied last year in the Allen case. , New York has a "Blaine' amendment" similar to Minnesota's Markert said, but in the Allen case the high court ruled that a state constitution cannot be more restrictive than the federal constitution. The case involved the state loan of textbooks to the nonpublic schools.

Shrine Visitors Increase As Tourists Return to Capital

WASHINGTON (NC) - Tourists returned to this capital city in impressive numbers during the first two weeks of April, and visitors to the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception here may have set records for the same period. This is of more than passing interest to this city, and probably has significance for the nation at large. Tourists, pilgrims and other visitors coming to Washington fell off markedly in numbers in 1968, after the riots that followed the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King. Officials, Ibusinesscmen and many others watched the weekends of Easter and Low Sunday 1969 with much concern because it was just a year since Dr. King's death and the ensuing riots. Traditionally, Easter brings many visitors because of school holidays, and this year the annual Cherry Blossom Festival was held the week before Low Sunday. 15,000 at Communion Now they are talking about record-breaking crowds, with some estimates putting the influx at 800,000 persons during the week ending with the festival. While these figures necessarily are estimates, more accurate counts can be had on two points: 20,903 persons went up in the Washington Monument over th(' Easter weekend, and 59.944 visited the Lincoln Memorial. These are regarded as the two major memorials in the city, and therefore the principal tourist attractions. Figures on persons who visited the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception here, either as individuals or as memo. bers of organized pilgrimages, also are impressive. Shrine officials say that approximately 25,000 persons visited the great church on Easter Sunday, and that Holy Communion was distributed to more than 15,000 persons at the Masses that day. Despite the fact that the upper church seats 2,500 persons, worshippers were standing in the



Asks Diplomatic Aid


WASHINGTON (NC) Dr. Kenneth O. Dike, roving ambassador for the government of Biafra, said Biafrans want the United States to use its diplomatic powers to bring about a political settlement of Biafra's war with Nigeria, from which it seceded almost two years ago. Questioned about reports that Nigerian federal forces were advancing on Biafra's provisional capital, Umuahia, Dr. Dike stressed that Biafrans would fight on until they had no more strength. At a press conference here, Dr. Dike ·pointed out the international character of the war. More than half of the armaments of the Nigerian federal forces are supplied by Great Britain, he said, and later stated: "The presence in Nigeria of Soviet, Egyptian, Algerian and Sudanese military personnel fighting alongside the Nigerians, especially in piloting the Russian-supplied Migs shows the collusion between communism and fanatical Arab nationalism in their plot to dominate and enslave our people and force on it an unwanted alien ideology."

aisles at three Masses, and an overflow crowd of some 6,000 came to the noon Mass. Philadelphia Pilgrims Visitors to the Shrine on Low Sunday weekend probably exceeded the number at Easter. There were well over 10,000 visitors on Saturday, April 12, with nearly 8,000 coming on pilgrim· age from Philadelphia, and many others coming in family and other small groups. There were more than 20,000 visitors the next day.. It is expected that the Philadelphia pilgrimage will prove the first in a long list of diocesan pilgrimages, whiCh Shrine officials are encouraging. While the city, by and large, was highly encouraged by the tremendous increase over. last year in the number of tourists, both visitors and residents suffered some inconvenience in traffic jams at and near the bridges crossing the Potomac River, in the area where most of the cherry blossoms were in bloom. Visitors to the Shrine, situated diagonally across the city were oiut of the r;ongested area.

Discuss Catholic, Jewish Relations ROME (NC) - Twenty-one Catholic experts on Judaism met here to discuss plans for putting the Second Vatican Council's ideas on Jewish-Christian relations into fuller practice. Results of the five-day meeting behind closed doors at the Holy Cross Congregation's generalate were not made immediately public, pending a full reading by the Vatican Secretariat for Promoting Christian Unity. The meeting was sponsored by the secretariat's section on Jewish-Christian relations. A communique issued at the end of the meeting said the discussions "revealed how the postVatican Council experience in various countries can already form a practical basis for discerning conditions for a profitable encounter on the part of both Christians and Jews." The communique, referring' to "the results of theological and historical studies since the council," cited in particular "the appreciation of the Jews as they continue to see and understand themselves." An American participant in the meeting, Father Edward Flannery, commented: "The Jews see themselves as a people as much as a religion, and take exception to Christians seeing them as nothing but a religion."

Puts Modern Touch To Age-Old Custom CROGNALETO (NC)-An ageold custom in the Abruzzo mountains of throwing money into the grave of a departed friend or relative has recently received a modern touch. Some mour~ers in this Abruz· zo region east of Rome, attending the burial services of a dear one, dropped four 10,000 lire notes ($64) into the open grave. Then a shopkeeper and friend of the deceased stepped forward, but hesitated for a moment as he seemed to be searching in his pockets for some money. Apparently finding none, the shopkeeper reached into the grave, picked up the 40,000 lire and put the money into his pocket. Then he calmly wrote out a check for 50,000 lire, which he dropped into the grave.



Choose PastoraI Council Members NEWARK (NC)-Twenty-four adults-12 men and 12 womenand eight young people were elected to the pastoral council being organized in the Newark archdiocese as a consultative body to Archbishop Thomas A. Boland. Delegates from all parishes in the archdiocese participated in the elections, which were held on the district level. One man and one woman were elected from each of three districts in each of the four counties of the archdiocese. For the election of young peo· pIe, the counties were broken into two districts each, with each district ele.cting one representative. The elections went smoothly except in Essex County District I, where there was a protest that the balloting denied representation to blacks. In that district, white nominees outpolled black nominees in both the men's and women's divisions.

Archbishop Hits Proposed Tax On Churches PORTLAND (NC)-A proposed tax on churches and church properties "would effectively put an end to our Catholic school system" in Oregon, Archbishop Robert J. Dwyer of Portland declared. A church tax bill was approved by the Oregon House of Representatives 40-19, and the measure has been sent to the state Senate. Closure of Catholic schools, Archbishop Dwyer said, would mean an additional burden on the state of educating an extra 24,000 students now attending parochial schools. In a letter to Oregon Catholics, the prelate noted that the legislation as proposed exempts church-related schools from taxation. But, he added, "what it fails to take into consideration is that our parochial and interparochial grade and high schools have no independent sources of income, other than very small amounts derived from tuition and fees. Increases Burden "They depend almost wholly upon the subsidy of the parishes themselves, which in turn depend entirely upon the free-will offerings of the Catholic faithful," Archbishop Dwyer pointed opt. "Many of our parishes, in fact, are spending up to 60 per cent to 70 per cent of their total income in a valiant effort to keep our Catholic schools in operation," he said. "We have no estates producing wealth, we have' no investments from which we derive sustaining income." The proposed tax, Archbishop Dwyer said, simply increases the financial burden on the Catholic people, "already laden with an effective double tax - freely accepted though this be. There comes a point of no return, there is a burden too heavy to be borne." Need Understanding Noting a concern with all Oregonians "for funding of our various public welfare programs," Archbishop Dwyer said "I am fully aware of the present stringencies which induce our legislature to scrutinize every possible source of monies for these necessary and praiseworthy projects." But, he said, "if it is the mind of the Oregon legislature to impose this tax, the consequences should be fully realized and faced up to. An additional burden on the state of educating some 24,000 students turned over to the public educational authority, should be taken into consideration as the matter is debated." Archbishop Dwyer urged Oregon Catholics "to make our position in this matter perfectly clear to our legislators. I am personally convinced that a clear understanding in this question will clear the air."

celebrating more t.han his 25th anniversary as a marks his return, after 27 years, to his alma Taunton. In the pleasant study of the new BrothFathers House on Church Green in Taunton, Broth-

had been a little apprehensive about returning to Coyle "In all my years of teaching I've been dealing with strangers," he said. "But now about one third of the boys in my classes are sons of old classmates. It's worked out very well, though," he smiled. Has there been a great change in Coyle since his student days? "Coyle was a rather small school when I enrolled and it built up during my four years to about the student body it has now," he said.

PHILADELPHIA (NC)-President Nixon was among those who extended greetings to Brother Daniel Bernian, F.S.C.• who will retire in June after 11 yeal·s as president of La Salle CoIlege here. . Brother Daniel was honored at a testimonial dinner sponsored by the college board of trustees and attended by some 1,000 alumni, students, faculty, civic and educational leaders. "X share the admiration which so many friends express for you as you leave a position which has' earned you such wide respect and gratitude," the President wrote. "Nothing is more important to America's future than that we provide our youth with the education and guidance they need to lead fuIl and meaningful lives. You have dedicated yourself wholly to this purpose. And you have merited the nation's thanks." Other congratulatory messages came from John Cardinal Krol of Philadelphia; Gov. Raymond Shafer and U. S. Sen. Hugh Scott of Pennsylvania; and Mayor James H.J. Tate of Philadelphia.

"It's going to be agonizing but the system is there to aid the student and not vice versa. If we can't achieve our purpose with the present system, we've got to scrap the system." He puffed his pipe thoughtfully, perhaps thinking of more peaceful days on the educational scene. "There's got to be a big change in our entire educational system to meet the needs of these students. I'm hoping that we're perceptive enough to know it-and to know what to do soon enough," he concluded.

Ho'spital to Have Major Addition NEW YORK (NC)-In one of his final public appearances before leaving ,for the Vatican to be elevated to the rank of cardinal, Archbishop Terence J. Cooke of New York officiated at groundbreaking for construction of a major addition at a hospital founded by a saint here. The expansion involves a 16story, 406-bed, air conditioned addition to the present 209-bed Columbus Hospital, which was founded by Mother Frances Xavier Cabrini, the first U.S.citizen saint. The expansion is scheduled to be completed in 1971. The hospital has been owned and operated since 1891 by the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart, which Mot.her Cabrini also founded. The expansion is designed to aIleviate the urgent need fOJ: increased hospital facilities in the community. In addition to the cardinal-designate, Mother Innocent Migliore, president of the governing board of the sisterhood, city and hospital ..officials, representatives of Protestant and Jewish institutions and officials of New York Catholic Charities took part in the cere· monies.

'Hails Pope's Visit To Geneva Meet WASHINGTON (NC) - "It is with special pleasure that we in the AFL-CIO learned that Pope Paul will attend the 50th anniversary meeting of the Intern~­ tionaI Labor Organization in Geneva in June," said George Meany, AFL-CIO president. "The American labor movement has had a unique relationship with the lLO, for Samuel Gompers, founding president of the present-day American labor movement, was as well the 'father' of the ILO. It is a fitting tribute paid the ILO on its 50th birthday to have Pope Paul honor it with his presence."

Pendulum Keeps Swinging By Msgr.George G. Higgins l)irector, Division of Urban I..ife, U.S.C.C. An experienced parish priest of my acquaintance, a kindly and very wise old man who grew uP. in the ApRalachian coal fields and has since gone to his reward, used to chuckle to himself rather benignly whenever he heard that some bishop or priest . had made another rial styles of long-haired student statement condemning or militants.

styles. He felt sorry for such illadvised clerical reformers and thought t hat they were wasting their time completely. "They might just as well save their breath," he used to say, "to cool their porridge or the i.r soup." That was good commonsen s e advice, based on 40 or 50 years of down-to-earth pastoral experience. It was meant to suggest that styles in clothing, cosmetics and hair-dos are so 'relative and so changeable-and have. so little to do with pure reason -:.. that it's foolish and demonstrably futile to make much of an issue out of them from the point of view of ethics or morality. Not all clerics would agree with this advice, of course. I remember one old pastor, for ex. ample, who years ago, used to threaten periodically to refuse Holy Communion to women who wore too much lipstick or (horrors!) painted their fingernails too brightly. Made His Point Needless to say" his female parishioners thought of him as being a little odd and used to gossip about this -and some of his other crotchety phobias more in sorrow than in anger. In his fluffy little novel on the Spanish Civil War, Bruce Marshall, the Scottish writer,' once created an even mote preposterous clerical reformer, an old Spanish Cardinal who issued a blistering pastoral letter on women's styles on the Sunday before the civil war began in Spain and, three or four years later-after a million Spaniards had been slaughtered and hundreds of churches burned to the ground - came out with an equally vehement letter on the same subject as soon as the war had come to a halt. Marshall's satire may have been a little heavy-handed, but, in any event, .he made his point rather effectively. His point was the same as that of my friend, the kindly old pastor referred to above: clerics who are tempted to moralize about women's styles might just as well save their breath to cool their porridge or their soup. Tonsorial Styles Marshall also meant to suggest, of course, that there are more important things for clerics to be worrying about-for example, economic and social conditions that can result in a bloody.civil war, as happened in the case of Spain in the 30s. The advice. given to clerics on this matter by Marshall and my friend, the pastor from Appalachia, applies not only to women's styles, but to styles in general and, more specifically at the present time, to the tonso-

NEWARK (NC) - A $20 million, five-year fund drive was launched by the Mount Carmel Guild, social welfare agency of the Newark archdiocese, at a luncheon here for businessmen. Purpose of the drive is to seek funds for an endowment which will provide $1 million annually after five years for operation of the guild's new multi-service center under construction here. The endowment will help meet operating expenses as the amount of federal and state go~­ ernment funds earmarked for the project tapers off over the fiveyear period. Endowment funds will supplement the annual $1 lI1illion subsidy now provided by .·tHe Newark archdiocese.. Completion of the multi-service center in downtown Newark will consolidate a variety of guild services now scattered throughout the city and various other locations. One building in the three-building complex is already in operation and construction on the second is expected to be completed this year. Ground will then be broken for the third building. The guild provides psychological, guidance and training programs for the blind, deaf, retarded, disturbed and needy, servicing people without regard to denomination.

People need recourse to a higher power, he said, while. atheists and others are trying to bre\lk down Christian principles. He was commenting on a vote by the Vancouver school board to request changes in the Public Schools Act to allow tDem to discontinue the daily Bible reading and recitation of the Lord's Prayer. "Some people are out to break down the whole structure of our Christian society throughout the country," Bennett said.

MIAMI (NC) - A bishop from Ecuador advocated here an effective system of interrelations at personal, national, and international levels in an atmosphere of independence, equality and justice as vital to the unity of North, Central and South America. Auxiliary Bishop Vicente Cisneros of Guayaquil, Ecuador, preaching during a Mass marking Pan American Week, said: "We the Americans of North, Central and South America, desire a united America, that peace, justice and sisterliness among us all may become a reality." "We desire a united America, that the economic, social and cultural development of our peoples may become a reality. We desire a united America that will concretize our solidaritya united America that will defend the values and high ideals of our civilization," he said. Christianity was cited by Bishop Cisneros as the most important sign of identity. He described the principal elements of PanAmerican cohesion and unity as Christianity and the Christian philosophy based on the teachings of "Him Who came to teach us the laws of love for the Supreme Being and for all men." "As a result of this common origin, human nature is identical in all points of the globe," he continued. Rights, Duties "This law, engraved deep within the heart of each man, is the foundation on which are based all the norms of being, of labor and of the duties 'of tfIen' and of nations," the bishop stated. "From this source also spring the rights of all nations to their f'xistence, to their ~ood name, to their own manner of being, to their culture, to their development, to the observance of international treaties and to all other rights included in the basic rights of man. "These rights are applied in time to concrete circumstances bS'- means of laws and treaties, thus making possible the balance between rights and duties." Bishop Cisneros said international togetherness demands justice, mutual confidence and fidelity to agreements, plus juridical international institutions and execution of international justice, highest' ideal of which i;.; expressed in the words, "the pacts ought to be observed."

Pope Uses Consistor.y for Active Programs Continued from Page One nomination on Monday. After numerous receptions in their honor, they today received' the signs of their office in a splendor that has long characterized papal historical ceremonies. Not only were the new Cardinals to associate themselves in an intimate way to the Pope's work but the whole Church was about to undertake a new step in the renewal asked for by the Vatican Council. By far, the most important announcement was the establishment of a Theological Commission composed of expert theologians from various parts of the world, associated to the Doctrinal Congregation and giving the Curia "the profit from wider exchange and more varied experience." Such a commission was suggested by the Vatican Council and strongly urged by the First Synod of Bishops in 1967. The real difficulties in forming such a commission have created some apprehension and even bitterness in the minds of those who feel that the Church is not going fast enough on its road to renewal. Pope Paul stated that "as things stand today, it is necessary to make provision for the increase of theological studies and research, especially in reference to new questions posed by scientific development and tendencies of the modern mentality to the right understanding and better exposition of Catholic doctrine." He noted that he had carried out "wide consultation, as was required by the seriousness of the question, and it is this, and . notshing else, that has delayed the bringing to completion of this plan." "Now it becomes a reality," the Pope proclaimed, "Side by side with the theologians, whose counsel the Doctrinal Congregation uses in the study of current questions, and to whom we express our satisfaction at the y

competence, dedication and unselfishness which they place at the disposal of this highly important congregation, there will now be added this new commission,so that the Holy See will be able to make use of the special contribution of expert theologians, selected from various parts of the world, and thus profit from wider exchanges and 'more varied experiences, always for the deepening and protection of the Faith, i. e:, for the deepening and protection of genuine revealed truth and, as a consequence, also of the spiritual life of all the orders of holy Church." New Congregations The Holy Father has also split the functions of the ancient Congregation of Rites and established two new congregations in its place. The. first will be the Congregation for Divine Worship which will de'al exclusively with matters involving the liturgy. The second will be devoted to all matters involving beatification and canonzation causes.

gical commissions and the First Synod of Bishops. The Pope explained, "After the long and patient work of simplification' of the entrance and offertory rites and those of the breaking of the bread and the kiss of peace, this is the goal toward which the reform of the Mass was moving, the reform that the Council Fathers desired." New Calendar Next Wednesday, the Vatican will also publish the new liturgical calendar which abolishes the 'pre-Ient penitential season (Septuagesima) and limits the feasts of saints for universal (world-wide) veneration to major figures in Church history. Many other saints of lesser renown are to be left to national, local or diocesan celebration. The Pope stated that "the essential elements of each season should emphasize more clearly the central importance of the Pascal mystery of Christ." A May 9 Vatican news conference will teIl how.

VATICAN CITY (NC) - The Congregation of Rites has discussed the heroic nature of the virtues of Father Clemente Marchisio, who founded the Congregation nf the Daughters of St. Joseph, and of Raffaela Ibarra, who founded the Sisters of the Holy Guardian Angels. Father Marchisio was born at Racconigi in the archdiocese of Turn, March 1, 1833, and was ordained in 1856. Four years later he became pastor of Rivalta Torinese. The Daughters of St. Joseph have the task of helping to prepare for the celebration of Masses. The priest died in 1903, and his beatification cause was introduced April 28, 1944. RafaeIla Ibarra was born at Bilbao, Spain, Jan. 16, 1843. In 1861 she married Count Jose de Vilallonga and had seven children. In 1885, with her husband's consent, she took re'iigious vows. When she was widowed in 1898, she dedicated herself to the community of nuns she had already founded. She died in Bilbao Feb. 23, 1900, and her beatification cause was introduced July 11, 1952.

,Canadian Churches Approach Unity HALIFAX (NC) - In their quest for unity, more than three million members of the United Church of Canada and the Anglican Church of Canada may soon mutuaIly accept bishops as "fathers in God," and settle amicably their long-standing controversies over doctrinal beliefs. Outstanding among proposals being put forward for new enbodiment of the church, to be brought into being by the organic union of the two communions, are an episcopal form of government, symbolizing the unity and continuity of the Christian Church, but shorn of what has been called "monarchial" overtones, together with recognition of the ancient creeds. ~-_

Ours is an open - and pluralistic society. That of the kibbutz is closed and homogeneous. The communal rearing of children requires a relatively small group which has an identical philosophy of life. The child in the kibbutz progresses from one natural stage of growth to the next, from one clearly marked status to the next, without confusion and with the support of his peers. There are no dropouts, no delinquency problems. However, one closes Dr. Bettelheim's exceptionally engaging book with the wistful longing that among us there might' somehow be brought about that deep concern for one another and the conviction of belonging to one another which he found among the kibbutzniks.

The declaration, made at a conference of Catholic and Protestant leaders here, came as the government enforced an enactment outlawing conversions brought about by the use of "force,- allurement or fraudulent means." The churchmen said they are not bound, '~on the ground of conscientious objection," to comply with a requirement in the enactment obliging ministers of religion and laymen to report conversions made by them to the local district magistrate.

DENVER (NC) Auxiliary Bishop George R. Evans of Denver urged all Christians to "join together" in an effective effort to prove' that "we care," lest the Church prove unworthy of the title, "The just people of Abraham upon whom God has set His mark from the beginning." He spoke at his consecration in the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception here. Archbishop Luigi Raimondi, Apostolic Delegate in the United States, was consecrator, with Archbishop James V. Casey of Denver and Bishop Hubert M. Newell of Cheyenne, Wyo., as co-consecrators. The new ,bishop was recently named pastor of an inner-city parish, St. Patrick's, composed largely of low-income SpanishAmerican families. He asked the question of the beleagured poor: "Is anyone there? Does any{)ne care?" He responded: "A simple affirmative answer is no longer sufficient. Concrete examples of dedicated care must be given." , Bishop Evans spoke of "a purified view of the hierarchical and community structure of the Church," stimulated by Pope John XXIII, Pope Paul VI, and the overall tenor of Vatican Council II. "The Church today is seeking new forms of service. Not only in -the Church but in all levels of our civil society there is criticism that the former structures are not competent to meet the demands of'the day," he said.

Amarillo Priests ,R,,~eh路e I~_~reas. AMARILLO - (NC) Bishop Lawrence M. DeFalco of Amarillo has announced a $50 per month salary increase for all priests of the diocese, with pastors receiving $175 per month and associate pastors, $140 per month.' The Texas Ordinary suggested that priests "forego their right to offerings made on the occasion of baptisms, marriages and funerals," and that "such monies be 'placed in a special charity fund for the poor that must be cared for in every parish." The bishop said the salary increase is in keeping with a resolution approved by the diocesan pastoral council last November, and with an opinion of the diocesan priests' senate.

THE ANCHOR-Diocese of Fall River-·Thurs., May 1, 1969


"Invincible, no one in the league is capable of beating them." Ostensibly, it would appear that this area coach were speaking about New Bedford's baseball club, or the track squad from Lawrence High of Falmouth. But, the woeful mentor was bemoanwhat is in store for future ing the fact that his tennis of league adversaries. In its first team has to meet the net- three starts Lawrence High men from both New Bed- shut out.Old Rochester Regional ford and Lawrence. The Crimson and Clippers have completely dominated play in the Southeastern Massachusetts Tennis League for the past five years and are on the way to repea~ championships in thei~ respective divisions. At this writing, New Bedford is the lone unbeaten club in the four team Bristol County division. Falmouth is the Capeway division leader with an unblemished 3-0 record. Admittedly the season is still young, but the manner in which both clubs have been perform. ing to date is surely an omen

of Mattapoisett, Dartmouth and Holy Family of New Bedford, Not to be completely outclassed, New Bedford blanked Msgr. Coyle High of Taunton and Old Rochester. The Crimson also turned back Taunton by a 4-1 score. However, there is plently of time for both teams to sharpenup their game before the circuit hosts the championship match scheduled for early June. The league docket lists II contests for each club-a home and away meeting for teams in the same division and a single encounter with clubs in the other.

Expansion a Definite Possibility New Bedford is joined by Coyle, Durfee High of Fall River and Taunton in the Bristol County division. Dartmouth," Barnand Old stable, Fairhaven Rochester compete in the Capeway division with Falmouth. Holy Family which is scheduled to play all league members is not an official league club, thus its matches do not count in the final league standings. All matches employ the rules of the National Tennis Association with one exception. By mutual agreement of the league coaches with purpose of stimulating more interest in the sport the league adopted a ruling stating that no boy may participate in more than one game per match. Thus, seven youngsters see action at every contest. Each match consists of three single

matches and two doubles. Most coaches in the expanding circuit carry a squad of 10-15 men and alternate some performers ffom match to match. The Southeastern Massachusetts Tennis League is a thing of the future according to the coaches. They are hopeful that the Bristol County League and the Capeway Conference will expand their Spring sports activities to include tennis for all members. One mentor predicts that the Narragansett League will then follow the lead of the larger schools and offer tennis to their athletes. He foresees the possibility of each of the leagues playing independent schedules with he league champions meeting to determine the Southeastern Massachusetts Team Tennis Championship.

Crucial Contest for Defending Champs Going one step 'further the amiable coach said that he would like to see the team tourney followed bya tournament to crown ,the !1rea's outstanding schoolboy tennis player - The Southeastern Massachusetts Individual Tennis Championship.

ford has taken a major stride toward its first Bristol County League championship since leav· ing the circuit ten years ago. Coach John Pacheco's diamondmen will be playing them one at a time, but they have already defeated their foremost combatant Durfee and appear to be the "class" of the league. Although the season is bearly underway New Bedford is the lone unbeaten club in the seven team loop. Pitching has been the key to the Crimson's early success as the New Bedford mound crop did not yield a run in posting a 3-0 slate. , Taunton will host the league leaders tomorrow in a must contest for the Tigers. Another loss for the Taunton nine could spell the end of Coach Mike George's hope for a repeat championship. In other league action Coyle will be in New Bedford to play Vocational and Bishop Feehan of Attleboro will be in neighboring Dartmouth to take on the Bishop Stang Spartans. Attleboro is scheduled to play at Seekonk in a non-league game and Durfee is idle.

Paul Gillis has made the rounds. As a pre-teen he played Little League baseball and a few years later joined the Pony League ranks. During his teenage years he donned a high school uniform and later wore the garb of the American Legion. Now with his teenage years behind him, Paul plays baseball on a college level. The son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Gillis of 780 Shawmut Avenue, New Bedford, Paul is a member of Holy Name Parish and presently attends Providence College where he is a junior. Paul entered the Providence school upon graduation from Bishop Stang High in 1966 and was awarded an athletic scholarship. Following a fine freshman campaign as a starting pitcher, he was used as a starter and reliever where he compiled a winning record last season. This season Paul is expected to duplicate last year's assignments. A rangy, 6-2 southpaw, Gillis acquired a "name" during his junior year in high school where he led the Spartans to a Bristol County League championship. Following his graduation, he was invited to play in the tough Cape Cod Baseball League where he became a leading pitcher and _ eventual All-Star:· One of Paul's biggest high school thrills came during his

Prelate Favors State Aid Bill SAN ANTONIO (NC) - A bill that would, provide state aid to parents of children attending non-public schools was endorsed by Archbishop Robert E. Lucey of San Antonio. In a letter to all pastors in the San Antonio archdiocese, Archbishop Lucey praised Rep. David Evans for his "sense of justice" in introducing the bill in the Texas House of Representatives. The archbishop also asked that Catholics communicate their support of the bill to the legislators in Austin. The bill calls for state aid in the form of tuition vouchers. It would permit students attending non-public schools accredited by The Texas Education Agency to receive the average per pupil ($148.95) the state contributes annually to the education of public school children. Evans welcomed Archbishop Lucey's endorsement, saying it will have a great effect on the outcome of this bill. Callan Graham of Austin, executive director of the Texas Catholic Conference, earlier hailed the bill as "an excellent opportunity for patrons of all private schools to voice their opinions on the subject of preserving a meaningful 'freedom of choice' in education."

End Three Day Sit·in at La Sa lie PHILADELPHIA (NC) - Students ended a three day sit-in at. La Salle College here after win· ning two key demands ,from the administration. The sit-in ended after the administration agreed to make ROTC voluntary, not mandatory, for college freshmen. Adminis· tration officials also agreed to the establishment of a committee to review the decision-making process at the college. Leaders of the ad hoc student committee which initiated the sit-in had charged students did not have a sufficient voice in the operation of the college and that. too many decision were made by the board of trustees. The new committee will comprise five students, five faculty members and two members of the admin· istration. "Since this committee' will represent every nook and cranny of the college, it will really be representative," said David Cawley, a Linwood, N.

inning relief stint in a 6-5 decision over Coyle. Gillis struck out seven and scattered eight hits at Attleboro but his performance was even more noteworthy since he had to get a private car ride to the game as he was attending a Rotary Club luncheon in the early afternoon at the New Bedford Hotel. Paul came on in relief of a 5-5 tie game and blanked the Warriors two days later with one hit for five innings. He fanned seven in the contest. He showed a lot of intestinal fortitude in that one in fighting off tiredness in the extra innings to emerge victorious. In addition to a fine baseball background, Paul was also a standout basketball performer for the North Dartmouth paro::hials. During his senior year, he was selected by the StandardTimes as player - of - the - week when he poured in 21 points as the Spartans upset perennial power Durfee, 50-45, late in the season and came back a few nights later with a 20-point effort in Stang's opening Catholic Tournament round, 85-82, rout of Brady of Concord, N. H. Paul was so impressive during a brief stay at the Ted Williams Camp in Lakeville that he was offered an athletic scholarship to attend the University of Arizona, although he declined in favor of PC. Paul's post college plans are incomplete at the moment although he has entertained the idea of becoming an athletic coach on a college level. During the Summer he has worked as a salesman in a downtown men's clothing store and hopes to' return to a similar position this Summer. Gillis enjoys all forms of athletics, including swimming and surfing and hopes to spend as much time as possible at the area's beaches beginning in June.

THE ANCHOR--Diocese of 'Fall River-Thurs., May 1, 1969

• University Archbi$hop Hannan Assu[fe~ Students of Interest In NEW ORLEANS (NC) Archbishop Philip M. Hannan of New Orleans expressed his deep concern over conditions at Southern University in New Orleans, a predominantly Negro institution, which had prompted student protests beginning April 10. The archbishop made a statement in answer to a request by university students that he comment on the situation.

The protests included the substitution of a "liberation" banner for the American flag, an action which drew more criticism than the reputed deplorable conditions on the campus had done. A faculty-appointed committee later announced that student demands would be'implemented as far as it was in the power of university officials to do so. "I wish to assure the students at Southern University in New

"Of course, 1 uphold the duty of respecting the flag at all times. 1 do not think, however, that this regrettable incident should becloud the central issue. The central issue is academic equality and opportunity. "While 1 think ,it is very important to' respect the flag, which 1 do gladly, 1 think it is more important to pay meaningful' respect to. those rights and opportunities for which the flag stands.

There is no doubt that there are serious deficiencies at the university which must prompt the interest and support of the whole community. "The crucial question is the lack of academic facilities in every ,respect. This is the ,core of the problem and it cannot be solved until a general upgrading 'is completed. .

"We honor the flag when we provide for all t\1e basic rights and opportunities which alone provide the means .of progress for all our citizens and neighbors."
