Tells Vincentians To Update Work For Ind igent JERSEY CITY (NC)-The So<;iety of St. Vincent de Paul must get away "from the food basket image" and become involved in a broader way in work for the poor. The observation came from Luke' J. Smith, executive secretary and veteran worker for the society in the Rockville Centre, . N.Y., diocese, at a meeting here .' of 200 delegates of the'society's iEastern Region. Speaking on the theme of updating the society in modern times, Smith said the members Turn to Page Three

Auxiliary Bishop James J. Gerrard, too, applauded the laity of the diocese for their generous response to the Appea! honoring the quarter-century jubilee of Bishop James L. Connolly as a member of the United States hierarchy. "The first returns indicate that the Appeal donors are honoring

Mixed Marriage, N'ew Directives WASHINGTON (NC) - Pope Paul's new mixed marriage norms drew generally enthusiastic reaction among Protestant, Orthodox and Jewish religious leaders.

New Bedford prelate asserted. Two parishes have already gained a place on the honor roll for "going over 'the top"of their highest previous totals. ~ey are: Notre Dame, Fall River. Our Lady of Angels, Fall River. Rev. Msgr. Anthony M. Gomes, diocesan Appeal director, foresees the probability that many more parishes will be added to' . the list. A new plan, inaugurated last year divides the 1194-square mile diocese into five areas, listing the five leading parishes in each section. Previously, the leaders were ranked regardless of location. The areas include Cape Cod and the Islands, the AttIeboros, Taunton, New Bedford and Fall River.

State law which exempts churchowned property from taxation. The 7-1 majority opinion was written by Chief Justice Warren iE. Burger. Justice William O. Douglas, the sole dissenter, based his objection on the belief that tax exemption. is the first step to state establishment of religion. The test case was brought by Frederick Walz, Bronx lawyer who owns a parcel of land-22 feet by 29 feet--on Staten Island that is taxed $5.24 a year. Burger said Congress from its earliest days had viewed the religion clauses of the Constitution as authorizing statutory real estate tax exemption to religious bodies. He declared:

See Highest .Court Deciding Legal Problems of Abortion WASHINGTON (NC)-The U. S. Supreme Court will ultimately settle the legal problems of abortion, a California attorney has told a meeting of the Diocesan Attorneys Association here. Joseph J. Braildlin of Los Angeles says: ·"It appears clear that the United States Supreme Court if basic issues as to the rights there is to be any definitive resof the unborn child will have olution of the problem."

"Nothing in this national attitude toward religious tolerance and two centuries of uninterrupted freedom from taxation has given the remotest sign of leading to an established church or religion and, on the contrary, it has operated affirmatively to help guarantee the free exericse of all forms of religious beliefs." Several months ago, a New York City official said religious institutions there own $692 million worth of property. Taxes on it would have brought in $36 million. Douglas feels the present involvement of government in religion as typified in tax exemption may seem inconsequential but "it is, I fear, a long step down the establishment path." "Perhaps J have been misinformed," he said. "But as I have read the Constitution and the philosophy, I gatherered that independence was the price of liberty." The First Amendment to the Constitution provides that "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof -' (, *. Burger rejected Douglas' "establishment" fears. He said if tax exemption is the first step, "the second step has been long in coming."

Month 01 the Elderly

News Media Dut"



Among other worthy appellations, May is', also the Month of the E l d e r l Y . i It has been said that the civilization of a country 'is indicated by the way it provides for its senicir citize,nsi , There was a time when older folks continued toremain a part of their families and lived out their days surrounded by children and grandchildren. From them ~he younger members learned wisd<?m and patience and the art of getting along with ano,ther generation. i Many older folks like the independence of living apart from their married sons and daughters and feel that this also gives their children the opportunity to live their own lives in their own way. . But for all too long a period of time tl~eir dependertce on fixed and small pensions 'and government checks m~de their day-to-day lives precarious ones. They lived a most frugal existence. Not too much attention was' paid to t'he utilization 'of their skills and abilities, ,'to their recreational. _ and social lives. The past few yearS have seen ari emphasiii on helpihg ,older people. It is a good thing. . ,. Home for the elderly-and a striking example of this is seen in the diocesan homes-are not places for people to live and die but, rather, places to live with -a minimum of stress and with a maximum' of care. ' i More facilities and programs for the social and recreational aspects of their lives are being provided. ,I A boost in government checks is taking a, more realistic'.view-not much, but a little-of costs that confroht older folks when they shop. A worthy society cares for all its peQple. AJI too lo~g were. the aged the forgotten ones. At least they are cOqIing more into their own. '

A Critical Point This year's Catholic Charities Appear is off to a good start. " .' i; ,But, at this point, it has also reached a. pe'riod of _crisis. This is the time in, every Appe'al when the' added wotk must be done-return calls made to those who were not at home, calls to those who may have been overlook~d in the initial phase of the Appeal. : It is the time, too, when those who are hesitatin1g about giving to the Appeal must heed the promptings qf their own hearts and realize that one person and his gift can make a difference in the life of another. I , ,And every gift, from each person is given with that in mind. Every dollar given to the Appeal makes a' difference in the life of a child who may be, retarded, the life of a confused young person seeking help at a social agency, in the life of an aged person finding hap,piness and care in a home for the elderly or chronic sicK, in the life of a person looking to, burn off energy in a youth program, in the life of a child unwanted or unable to be cared for by his fami'ly. ' ,I The, Appeal answers the silent cries for help from all these, persons. The' facilities aided by the l~ppeal an L swer the needs of aU these. When less money is given, the needs are that much farther from being realized. Whe~ more money is given, expansion to care mote deeply ari<J. for more people is possible. 1 , I The final push at this point in the Appeal is needed to make the Appeal more responsive to more needs that more people have." !'

Night of the· Generals

Continued from Page One - ing as individual persons and Christians." Noting that, these modern forms are taking over from the traditional means of communications such as the home" the school and the parish, the Pope said that now they provide new sources of knowledge and culture and that therefore they must be directed to "the service of the whole of mankind and of the whole man." Unfortunately, he added, this is not always the case. "We witness young people and children, used as easily secured consumers by an industry that makes itself its own end, beinlt dragged into the pitfalls of eroticism and violence or led along the perilous paths of incertitude, anxiety and anguish," he said. , On the other hand, asked the Pope: "Who is unaware of the urgency of putting to good account the means of social com· munication with their stirring modes of address through sound, image, color and movement, to make of them real modern instruments for communing among men that meas!1re up to the expectations of young people?" 'Remain Passive' While modern communications are "exceptionally powerful instruments for the service of youth," Pope Paul said, young people must be trained in how to use them and how, to judge and assimilate what they are seeing and hearing. "Not much can be achieved," said the Pope, "if the young people themselves remain passive as though under the spell of these powerful attractions, held captive by desire and incapable ' of self-control." 'LPope Paul ,noted that "millions of' men -have shared the ,same thrill before the images brought to them of man's first steps on the moon." He asked if the same "deep emotion" could not be shared by means of modern communications "before the God of love who came down to walk the earth as a man."

Fifth Mark of True 'Church Undoubtedly 'Sister Says'

Cites Two Kinds Of Pollution

By Mary Carson Every time one of my kids comes home whining "Sister Says" I feel like screaming. It's not so much the two words, as the sing-song inflection, and the absolute infallibility, of whatever is to follow. "Sister Says we have to have cartridge pens." tool at all. Just a little Sister has never tried to writing peanut butter left on their finwash out the ink that gets gers, and they could get smudges all over the sheets when a on the ceiling as well as their kid changes a cartridge. Who knows why the cartridge was beng exchanged ;::~:::::;, in bed - bud?: that's how my:' kids do things. Besides, it seems that pens are to i lose and for ti, some unknown iIi::::::


new car~ridget pen much (aster~ than they lose~\ the old 19c ball-R points. J decided to approach the probliem calmly and asked Sister why it had to be cartridge pens? Sister explained it was a "diocesan regulation. "Her tone sounded as if she considered it part of Canon Law. Curious, J asked when that regulation was put in effectand if it' was still. She admitted that it was regulation several years ago,' but she didn't know if it was currently. Slowed on that front, Sister started a second approach. "Using a cartridge pen improves their handwriting." J recalled hearing that argument for stick pens and ink wells. J said J felt the only thing that improves handwriting is the sudden desire on the part of the child to' do it! If the kid, really wants to, he can write beautifully scratching with a nail. My kids can make "chicken-tracks" with an electric typewriter. I questioned the added cost. Sister explained that they only cost a dollar or two. J turned pale, and tried to explain how, because of loss and leakers, it soon adds up to 15 or 20 dollars or two. Sister credited that to the child's irresponsibility. J knew that, but it didn't reduce the drain on my budget. Big Gun Now Sister brou~ht out her big gun! "Cartridge pens write neatly" Sister said; and then concluded with a decided distaste, "ball point pens smudge." "Ah ha," J thought, "Little blobs of ink on papers upset Sister's esthetic sense!" I said I felt sure my kids could smudge anything - given any

Cardinal Tisserant Visits Canada, U.S. VATICAN CITY (NC)-Cardinal Eugene Tisser~nt, 86, Frenchborn dean of the Sacred College of Cardinals, has left Rome for a month-long visit to Canada and the United States. The prelate plans to visit a number of U.S. cities In the period from April 28 to May 19. His Canada stops occur before and after the U.S. segment of his trip. . While in Canada, Cardinal Tisserant will confer with civic and Church leaders and receive an honorary degree from the University of Laval. As Grand Master of the Order of the Holy Sepulchre, he will participate in functions of that order.

homework. Anyway, if the kid didn't smudge the work himself, the baby did the job for him. We reached a deadlock. Sister wanted cartridge pens. I had had it. Nothing was declared as regulation, so I went back to supplying ball-points. Defeated on one front, Sister must have' stayed up nights dreaming of a replacement. "Sister Says we have to have red pens." "What on earth for? J just bought a gross of blue pens to last the whole family for the full year." • "That's okay. We have to have red and blue pens," "Why?" , "'Cause Sister Says that when , we do our spelling words in sentences, the word has to be underiined in red ink-not blue ink, not red pencil, but red ink!" Knowing the 'difficulty of keeping them equipped with any pen at all, I pictured what it would be now that the problem was doubled.

The German diplomat was kidnaped by guerrillas early in April and killed after their attempts to exchange him for 25 guerrillas held by authorities failed. Archbishop Prigione played a prominent mediation role in the efforts, and said at funeral rites in Guatemala City that von Spreti's death was "a useless, senseless sacrifice which could 373 New Boston Road have been avoided by the good' will and the patience needed for Fall River 678-5677 further negotiations,"



ST. PAUL (NC)-University of Notre Dame president Father Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C., warned here that America is creating two kinds of pollutio'1: the atmosphere pollution of smokestacks and car exhausts and the human pollution of racial prejudice. Speaking at a press conference given before he addressed members of the Universal Notre Dame Club, Eather Hesburgh charged that housing, employment and education inequalities are dividing the country into two nations, one black and one white. The priest, chairman of the U.S. Civil Rights Commission, said that a ,combination of leadership and "a change of heart" could solve the nation's racial crisis. He added that he was optimistic that the country would commit itself to solving these problems in the next five years. In an aside on Catholic education, Father Hesburgh warned that Cahtolic schools should find a gold mine or an oil well. He a,dded that the exodus of "free professional help, namely nuns and priests," might make the Catholic educational system financially unworkable even with government subsidies.

WASHINGTON (NC) - United' States Commissioner of Education James E. Allen promised here to work for school integration of alI types whether it is .' based on law (de jure) or on circumstances (de facto). Commissioner Allen's pledge came in the wake of the integra~ tion effort promised by President Nixon in a March 24 speech. The President promised his administration would move to end de jure segregation, but adcied that it was powerless to stop de facto, segregation usualIy stem-' ming from local residential patterns. Dr. AlIen called on educators to step up efforts to achieve ,desegregation and to point out "the harmful effects of segregation on alI our people." He promised to "continue to emphasize the educational value of integration and the educational deprivation of' segregation regardless of cause." , Although White House spokesmen made no comment on Dr. AlIen's statement, government officals .announced here that the bulk of federal aid to public schools would be going to schools in the process of desegregating. In areas where de facto segreA~ation exists, officials added, funds would be devoted to integration efforts and to. benefitting racialIy integrated programs.

• Bishops Assert School Aid Plan Too Small

TRENTON (NC) - The New Jersey Conference of Catholic Bishops, in a statement issued here, described Gov. William T. Cahill's proposals for aiding non public schools "distressingly small in view of the overwhelming needs." Gov. Cahill, in a mid-April special message to the legislature, proposed a $9.5 million expenditure to help ease finanCial problems facing private schools. He warned that closing' of private schools would have serious consequences for the state's public school system. That warning was repeated in the bishops' statement. After noting that parochial schools now educate one of every five students in the state, the bishops said: "Each of us faces agonizing decisions, within the months ahead, as to the allocation .of funds, assets and personnel to meet the needs of our school systems." If assistance is not forthcoming, they indicated, it is possible that the. percentage of children educated in parochial schools might drop to one in six, seven, or even less. "Those who oppose aid to nonpublic schools on fiscal grounds must explain the obviously greater burdens the taxpayer must assume if such schools have to close, or even if their atte~dance has to be curtailed," the bishops said. DIrectly to Parents The Cahill administration has not yet submitted enabling legislation spelling out school aid programs. Clouding the situation is the Catholic agitatioh for tlie passage of the so-called Vander Plaat bill, a measure whose concept the governor backed during his November election campaign; introduction of other school-aid legislation in the state Senate, and a recent Superior Court decision upsetting the state's 1968 fair busing law. The Vander Plaat measure would distribute aid directly to parents on the same basis that per-pupil assistance is now provided to public school districts. Its estimated cost is $90 million. New legislation introduced by Sen. William V. Musto of Hudson County calls for payment to parents of $50 for each child enrolled in a non public school, the amount rising to $100 after the first year. Its estimated firstyear cost is $15 million, and $30 million annually thereafter.

Number of Sistell's Declines in France PARIS (NC)-Shortage of vocations and attrition by aging are shrinking the number of Sisters in France. • The country now has 111,960 Sisters in about 11,000 houses conducted. by 400 congregations. In 1945 France had 117,300 Sisters. According to a survey by the Union of Major Superiors in cooperation with the French bishops, the number will drop further, to about 90,900' in 1975 and 83,100 in 1980. The vocation decline began as far back as 1935, and now shows up in a disproportionate number of Sisters in the over-50 age bracket. About three-quarters of French Sisters are engaged in professional duties. There are 370 convents of contemplative nuns in France at this time.,

React to New Mixed M,arriage Norms Most Non-Catholic L·eaders See Progress Continued from Page One proprio, or apostolic letter issued on his own initiative, contained 17 norms which give diocesa,n bishops much of the power the Vatican used to have in deciding possible options on where and how a marriage ceremony between a Catholic and a nonCatholic can take place. The norms go into effect Oct. 1. Among other things, they put the entire burden for the raising of Catholic children upon the Catholic partner and no longer insist on a promise from the nonCatholic. Marriage 'is also made possible before a non-Catholic minister in a non-Catholic church and, in some cases, in a public place other than a house of worship. The papal norms ask that Conferences of Bishops meet and discuss these new proposals. There should be some kind of

Schedules Program Of Clinical Training MILWAUKEE (NC) - Thirdyear seminarians at Milwaukee's St. Francis Seminary will begin a program of clinical training for the apostolate next year. Seminary rector Msgr. William N. Schuit said that 15 seminarians would study in hospitals and other· institutions across the country where they will learn pastoral skills under the supervision of experts. Explaining the new program, Msgr. Schuit commented "Today's unique challenges in pastoral ministry require an integrated theological education which somehow bridges the gap between the practical and the academic, the technical and the scholarly."

uniformity in a particular area or region. This is especially im~ portant in regards to the possible arrangements for the presiding priest or minister who is to officially witness the administration of the Sacrament of Marriage. 'Going Back' Comments ranged from a Methodist bishop's rejoicing that the Catholic Church is "moving in the right direction" to an Orthodox leader in India saying the document was "a definite going

back". and an American rabbi stating that many Jews "will welcome the general atmosphere of liberalization." The Rev. Dr. Eugene Carson Blake, general secretary of the World Council of Churches, said in Geneva: "This new statement 'is to be welcomed, although it does not go as far as many had hoped. Fundamental issues remain unsolved. "For this reason, the problems of mixed marriages and especcially of the nature of Christian education will remain on the agenda of .the ecumenical-debate. Perhaps this discussion will make possible further progress before any final regulation will be included in the new canon law." 'Small Step' The Rev. Dr. -Fredrik A. Schiotz of Minneapolis, president of the 2.6 million member American Lutheran Church, called the document "a small step on the way to the Christian freedom which allows the individual believer to exercise this very important and personal decision of faith." Archbishop lakovos, Greek Orthodox archbishop of North and South America, said: "I express my gratification over the true Christian liberal statement on mixed marriages. I hope that all Christian churches adjust their thinking on mixed marriages in the same spirit. I consider the document an invitation to all of us clergymen to think of ways of contributing to the solution of the perplexed problem we face in the matter of mixed marriages."

The two recent reports on development assistance+ the Pearson Report drafted by an international commission, the Peterson Report by a Presidential task force+ both share one very strong conviction. This it that more of the funds and the techni" I . 'd' f of a frontier of virtue and then cal assIstance set aSI e or defining "goodies" and "baddie~" 'world development should according to, a U.

' We have therefore to ask why, after nearly 20 years of aid programs largely organized. on a strictly national basis, the pressure today is increasingly for a new international emphasis. . Ch f Thought ange ,,0 , Perhaps the first reason is an underlying change in the way nations think about themselves and the planet they have to s hare.

Today more manpower is beinging used to lobby for these causes, more space is devoted to them in union periodicals, and more money is being spent to support candidates who favor social reform than ever was true in the thirties." Secondly, Dunlop and Bok warn that "there are great dangers in assuming too quickly that the faults of unions lie mainly with their I~aders. If the assumption proves inadequate or incorrect, not only will a great diJiservice be done to many union officials but society may also go badly astray in trying to construct a viable labor policy." Respect Facts· The scholarly manner in which Dunlop and Bok proceed to develop these two points in several different contexts will probably riot appeal to many of labor's more impatient critics, but I dare say that their impressive study of the American labor movement, "Labor and the American Community," will stand the test of time far better than almost any other book of its kind published in this generation. It's in a class all by itself. This is not to say th!lt· D'J;nlop and Bok are unmindful of labor's many - faults and imperfections. To the ·contrary, when the facts seem to warrant it, they can be extrem~ly critical of the labor movement. The point is, however, that they have approached their study of the movement with a profound respect for facts and have scrupulously avoided the use of the slogans and shibboleths which are the trademark of so many of labor's disillusioned critics.

Diocesan Papers


Continued from Page One Word, the sharing of an idea, have been central to Christianity for 20 centuries. . "Today there 'is a wider circulation of knowledge, a broader sharing of information than ever before in the history of the world. "It follows that not all of today's wave of information is of equal value to the spirit of man. "The cause of 'human dignity the freedom of man to continue his forward movement, merit stronger support than they ordinarily receive in the commercial i and governmental media of today's world. Priority Reading "As bishops of Christ's Church, charged with the continuing dissemination of Christ's essential message to the world, we rely strongly upon the Catholic press. "We are especially encouraged by the positive contribiution to human understanding and to the knowledge of the Church provided by the diocesan newspapers published under our general jurisdiction and at the same time conscious of their journalistic responsibilities to all who read them.. "We affirm our support of the Christian principles that guide these publications, and we stress the urgency of their mission. "It is our earnest qope that the diocesan newspapers of this country wiIl be welcomed into every Catholic home, and that they will constitute priority reading for every member of the family. <) "Today, when the printing presses flood the nation with material of every description-some of it valuable and some of no value.:-we reaffirm our confidence in invaluable support given by the diocesan newspaper to Christian action and growth."

Translation of Testame.,ts Successful Undertaking By Rt. Rev. Msgr. John S. Kennedy I

Almost 25 years in the making, The New English Bible (Oxford University Press, Cambridge University Press. $9.95) is now complete. The New Testament section: has Qeen available to readers for some years, and has 'fom well." The Old Testament has " I ." . b bl' h d I suppose that a treasury of, dIS-' ]U~t . een pU IS e a ong creditable secrets is going ro be WIth It, and the whole under- laid open to him" The title seems taking can be pronounced a to promise an expose. I


signal success. It meets the standards set when the work was first proposed. The translation is a completely fresh one from the original lariguages, not' a revision or updating, of any previous English version. The aim was to put the _ original in conte~porary . ~nghsh, avo~dmg both ar.chalsms. and .present-day expressions which might soon be obsolete.. The t~anslatlOn of each book of the Blb.le went thro~gh sever~1 s~ages. First, a speclal~y quahfled person was appomted to perform the task. Then, what he produced was carefully reviewed by a panel of scholarly experts. When , after detailed discussion, ~hey reached an agreement to which the translator assented, the revised ma~uscript we~t to a ~anel of hterar.y adVisers. Their amended verslO~ was returne? to the translatl?g panel., The fmal form v:a~ deCided upon by both panels Jomtly., Many people have labored on this project, but the result is anything but labored: The translation reads well. It proceeds easily, as for example, in those verses in Proverbs which describe a c'apable wife. A count of Annunciation c The tasks of today's housewife are considerably different from those of her counterpart in ancient Palestine. And the renderings of this passage with which we are familiar are likely to be either incomprehensible in some respects or grotesque in" the translator's striving for a mod, ern equivalent. But here there is no attempt to modernize the housewife; 'rather, the concern is to make what is said of her intelligible. In the account of the Annunciation, ,Mary' asks, "How can this be? I am still a virgin." And .when the explanation is given, she says, "Here I am. I am the Lord's servant; as you have spoken, so be it." Everyone will have to try out this translation for himself. We predict that most will approve it. and that it will serve with distinction its purpose of laying open the Scripture to the man of our day. Secret Archives Anyone who takes up The Secret Archives of the Vatican (Little, Brown, 34 Beacon St., Bostori, Mass. 02106. $10),' written by Luisa Ambrosini with the assistance of Mary Willis, ma~

There are indeed secre~ archives of the Vatican, but there is nothing sinister about them. They are, in the author's j*dgement, "perhaps the most important archives of the" wdrld," containing some 25 miles of .... bookshelves laden with p~rchment and paper manuscripts of great historical value. : Mrs. Ambrosini concludes that the real value of the archives "is not in intellectual discoveI1! but in the sense of the past! that they give us, the rich regretful wisdom of our long human experience."

Attleboro Golfers Favored In Bristol County League Defending champion Attleboro is the odds-on choice to repeat as Bristol Scholastic Golf League titlist. The Frank O'Connell coached Jewelers, who presently own a 6-0 overall record, are undefeated in two league outings. Consensus is that the Blue and White should have little trouble tham varsity golf team. And, according to Coach O'Connell, capturing the Divi'sion II he has been the number one crown and, in the circuit's scorer in many matches.

A year ago, behind the area's premiere schoolboy gOlfer. Marc Forbes, Attleboro finished fourth in the State match only three strokes off the pace. Forbes is attending Brandeis University on a combination golf·basketball scholarship. He is number three man on the Wal-

Replacing a player of his caliber would seemingly be an impossible task. However, such has not been the case at AttlebOro. Waiting -in the wings ready to take over the number one spot on the team was junior Gary Carlson. The youngster, who has competed on the varsity club for two seasons, has yet to lose a single match. Last week in a match with Dighton-Rehoboth Regional, Carlson shot an even par on a tough / Crestwood Country Club course.

Best Tutelage for Young Linksmen The strongest club in the southern bracket appears to be New Bedford which is in the process of building for the future and winning at the same time. The Crimson and White plays its home matches at the Whaling City Country Club, a difficult course for the average young "duffer." However. Wayne Hichman is right at home while touring the course. The sophomore has led the Whalers to the top of their bracket and. in the process. is tabbed "the best prospect in the league." Although Attleboro and New Bedford have established themselves as the teams to beat, the season is still young. and, anything can happen in schoolboy sports.

Largest City UNITED NATIONS (NC)Tokyo and New York are still competing for the title of world's largest city. According to figures for 1967, Tokyo had the largest "city proper" figure (8.960,000 to New York's 8.022.500) but New York's "urban agglomeration" figure (city proper and suburbs) was 11.555.900 to To· kyo's 11.172.000.

The circuit schedule calls for two matches against each divisional opponent. Bishop Feehan High of Attleboro and Bishop Connolly High of Fall River, strong contenders in Division II. could improve enough to overtake favored Attleboro, but, this seems unlikely. The other division members are Msgr. Coyle High of' Taunton, Dighton-Rehoboth and Taunton. Division I teams are New Bed· ford, Durfee, New Bedford Vocational, Somerset, Old Rochester and' Bishop Stang High of Dartmouth. The best way to 'learn the game of golf it to play, and. play according to the rules. This is precisely what the schoolboy golfers are doing and. in later life. they will have a sport to turn to that will give them enjoyment and physical exercise. Even though golf does not enjoy the same scholastic notoriety as baseball and track it is an integral part of the Spring sports program and its importance is unquestionable. The schoolboys are playing on the finest courses in the area and under some of the best amateur golfers in Southeastern Massachusetts.

"You were a big part of mak· ing this a very rewarding and happy year for me. We are all going to miss you next year." Coach Gibney, in reviewing the team accomplishments of the past Winter, said today: "Our two biggest wins were against Lowell Tech (which was undefeated before our match) and Boston College. I look for· ward to an even better season next year. One of the principal problems will be to fill the void wlhich will be caused by Jack Springer's graduation."

Completing its first varsity wrestling in 13 years with a 7-2-2 record, Boston University can thank in part, at least. a former Bishop Stang High School football player for his accomplishments in reviving a dormant Terrier sport. The former diocesan gridder is 158-pound class matman, Jack Springer, son of Mr. and Mrs. John H. Springer of 109 Home Street. Fall River. Jack went to BU as a toprated football player. But, he suffered a concussion during the first few weeks of practice. ending his days on the gridiron. Most young men would have called it "quits" right then and there. but, not the Fall Riverite. Though Jack had never wit· nessed a wrestling match. he went out for the university mat team one year after his football accident. Springer, who will be graduated this month, not only made the team but also went on to achieve a personal 6-2 mark. Coach Dick Gibney hailed the tremendous accomplishment by one' who had never seen the sport before his own participation. ' Then, this past season, another injury befell Springer who is a member of the Sacred Heart parish in the See City. A severe knee injury hampered him. drop· ping his record to 2-1. but. nevertheless another individual winning season. Springer. who will further his education when he enters Springfield College, next Fall to aspire for a master's degree in physical education. is well known for several heroic efforts during the four Summers he served as a lifeguard at Horseneck Beach. One of Jack's most cherished possessions .as he prepares to leave Boston University is a letter just received from Coach Gibney who thanked him (or his "dedication and loyalty thAt you displayed all season.

Prepared for Baptism of Infants' The tnree pictures illustrate certain aspects of the New Order of Baptism. This new rite for the first time has been prepared for the Baptism of infants. Until now an abbreviated form of the Baptism of adults was in use. The new rite is addressed to the. infants personalIy. Also, the' roles of parents receive greater emphasis. 'It is the parents who present their child at the Baptismal font. They make the sign of the cross on the infant's forehead after the celebrant, as welI as pronounce the "renunciation," make the profession of faith, receive the infant from the font and hold the candle. Sponsors remain and have their own part in the signing, renunciations, profession of faith, and the lighting of the candle.'
