Hungarians Adiust

To Life on Cape Many Cape parishes, particularly iri the Falmouth area, have a number of new and unusual parishioners these days. , They' are young people, Hungarian refug'ee students in fact, who, last Winter were forced to flee for their lives from their homeland, in the rebellion against their Com­ munist masters. How did they come to the Cape? It all started when, during the Hungarian crisis, Dr. Albert Szent-Gyoergyi, Nobel prize winner and eminent scien­ tist of Woods Hole. received wolld from Vienna that there were large numbers of young students who were in Austria without par­ ents and who would like to com­ plete their high school education. Consequently, with the help of interested citizens of Woods Hole and Falmouth, he was able to es­ tablish . the Committee for the Shelter of Hungarian Students, and asked families on the Cape to sponsor these youthfUl Hun­ garians by providing them with a home and shelter and the op­ portunity of continuing their education through high school. The response was typically ~meri«an, that is to say, gen­ erous, and soon the young people began to arrive from Camp Kil­ mer. The Catholics among them came throug'h the agency of the Catholic Committee for Refugees -N.C.W.C and the Catholic Wel­ fare Bureau of Fall River which acted as the Resettlement Agen­ cy.

W~n they arrived, they knew little or no English, but, l\maz­ 111g1y. after a few weeks they had learned enoug,h to get along quite well.

Protestant Asks Public B·u·sses For P'aroch;lCllI School Pupils

Silence Broken Only by RO$ary

NEW YORK (NCt - Use of public school buses by parochial Ichool students has bun favored by John C. Bennett, Protestant theologian. Protestants gener.lUy ar~ divid­ ed on this question. Dr. Bennett said in an editorit\l published In Christianity and Crisis. a bi­ weekly journal of Christian olJinion. He noted tln.t publicity i:i centered mainly on the Pro­ testant opposition to th~ use of the buses by Plll'ochill school 3tudents. "The fact that school llUses are related to the public school sys­ tem is a source Of-S;)lll~ confu­ sion." Dr. Bennett wrvte. "Why can't this be thought of as being l'l~lated to the community's pro­ vision· for its children's trans­ portation without discrimination. As a matter of fact th~ buses and the public schools belong to the whole community, including· the pllrents of parochial school chil­ dren. These parents do not need to use the public schools. but why should the use of th,e buses be denied. them? "If school buses do carry parochial school children. this may require more buses and

Silence Is the byword In St. Anne's Hospital. However, every da;y at 5 :30 p.m. the Hospital is no longer in the quiet zone, for at' that m9­ ment the wards and rooms are filled with the responses to the 'Rosary. As part of Catholic Action done by t11e Legion of Mary - "Our Lady of Good Health ·Praesi­ dium" - the Legionaires have arrang·ed to have the Rosary re­ cited over the public address sys­ tem of the hospital. The patients have all received a progTam an­ flouncing the Rosarr Crusade and numerous posters have been placed throughout the hospital for the benefit of the patients. employees and visitors.' This laudable practice serves not only as a consolation to the patients, but an inspiration to anyone who chances to be in the hospital. Radios are silent, but the world's gTeatest symphony is heard - the Rosary:. TV sets are darkened, but the consolation re­ flected in the eyes of the patients' manifests the power in faith in the Rosary.

Priests Come 'flr,om

L·arger

Familie~s

MARYKNOLL (NC) - A sur­ vey of MaryknoU'3 June 1957 ordination class reveals that more vocations definitely do come from large families. The survey showed that of this year's class of 32, the average student for the priesthood comes from a family of seven. A large percentage of the ordinanti come from a family of 10 and 11. while one young man counts 10 brotb­ ers and five sisters In his family. Seven seminarians also have brol.hers or sisters in the relig·ious

often additional routes and thus add to the expense. But the parents of parochial school chil­ dren pay taxes, and the fact that they also pay for the parochial schools in many communities considerably reduces the taxes which other citizens have to pay. In this situation, why is it not reasonable adjustment to the claims of fail'l1ess to provide transportation for their chil­ dren?" Dr. Bennett stated that' the U. S. Supreme Court in its deci­ sion in the Everson case in 1947 "went so far as to compare the provision of police protection for all children."

North Attleboro Family Honored A North Attleboro family of five has been named the "All­ American Massachusetts Family" and will g·o to Miami Beach May 28 to compete with those of other states for national' honors. Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Mullen and their children, Virginia 12. Thomas Jr. 11, and Marguerite Anne 8, were chosen by a nation­ al selection board composed of editors of the Book of Knowledge and the Boys' Clubs of America, sponsors. Selection was mad'e on the basis of answers to a question­ naire drawn up by authorities on family living·. Mr. Mullen, a mason contractor, and his family are members of St. Mary's Parish, No. Attleboro. They re­ side at 108 Division Street. The children are .pupils in St. Mary's Parochial School. Mrs. Mullen is the president of the Catholic Women's Club of North Attleboro.

lif;:>. The survey also showed that mission vocations .are not con­ fined to one section· of the coun­ try, with 17 dioceses in 11 dif­ f~rent States represented by the 32 seminarians. Approximately one-third of the class are armed service veteral1s and some di­ rectly tie the reasons for their vocations to theil' service life.

Fountciin of Love

God Love You By Most Rev. Fulton J. Sheen, D.D. Did Our Lord ever weep? Yes, three times. Precious are those tears .to all who are engaged In the work of the Propaga­ tion of· the Faith. It was sorrowt, of course. which drew from His Great Heart. as a Fountain of Love. these signs of grief.' ­ 'He wept over the City of .Jerusalem. over the Tomb of Lazarus and In the Garden of Gethsemane. The weeping over Jerusalem was over a culture and a civiliza­ tion which had forgotten G9d. It is In the light' of eternity that nations are Judged, namely how they affect Christ. Jerusalem was a type of Russia and China today. - What a grief it Is to the Heart of. Christ that out of 8.500 foreign missionar­ ies there are only twenty-two left in China.

Colleges to Expend 247.Million in '-hree Years

MILWAUiCEE (NC> - One hundred and forty-five Catholic colleges and universities which have development programs now und~rway will spend an esti­ mated $227,500,000 by 1960 readying themselves for future enrollment booms. This was disclosed by Father Edward J. Kammer, C.M., who conducted a survey under the auspices .of the college and uni­ versity department of the Na­ tional Catholic Educational As­ sociation, which held its 54th annual convention here.

America Has More to Fear from Educators Than Soviet Reds NEWARK (NC) - "America. has much to fear from the men­ tality of its teachers-more so than from the nihilism of Khru­ shchev and the others of the Soviet," Father Hugh Halton. C.P .. chaplain for Catholic stu­ dents o.f Princeton University, told the Federation of Holy Name Societies of the Archdiocese of Newark. Father Halton warned that the "nihilism of the communists is obvious. while that of the teach­ eril is often more subtle," "America," he said, "is In a state of seige-the spiritual ant! moral subversion in American education today will prove more disastrous than economic or poli­ tical subversion. StUdents are l'obbed of God by the theory that' God is only a symbol and they are robbed of intellect by theories of knowledge that doubt ability to know. They are taught there is no GQd and no sin. The disaster is not so much in committing sin, as in not recognizing' sin." At Princeton where he ha.s been chaplain to the Catholio Iitudents since 1952, Father Hal­ ton pointed to the metaphysical works of Dr. Walter T. Stace.

Beatification Nearer For Canadian Nun OTTAWA (NC) - Another step has been taken 'in the pro­ cess for beatification of Vener­ able Mother d'Youville, foundreS3 of the Grey Nuns of Montreal. Advice has been received from Rome that medical stUdy has been made of two cures attri­ buted to the intercession of Mother d'Youville and that they Rre scientifically unexplainable. The Chul'ch mlist reco'gnlze these cures as miracles before the pro- ' cess for beatification proceeds. From the parent cOlnmunity

breed today's juvenile delin­ quents," a priest expet"t on youth problems said here. The charge was made by Fath­ er Daniel Egan, of Franciscan Friars of the Atonement. at a teen-age mission held at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church, In this Massachusetts City. He told over 900 teen-agel'S that the greatest tragedy of mod­ ern times Is that a great num­ ber of adults "have lost both the sense of God and the sense of sin. It VIas into 'this godless agEl Vlhich they created that you kids were born." . "True, you don't have to bl bad, you have free will and God's grace will help yoU be good," he explained. "But, because thl causes of delinquency kept In existence by adults are all around YOU; believe me, if a kid wants to become bad, It's certainly easier to be bad today than ever before," "YOtl kids," he added, "didn'\ kick God out of a system of edu­ cation that graduates thousands of spiritual morOM every year • . . didn't build the saloons ... the drive-in 'passion-pits,' the birth control styles of glorified doghouses we see all around UI. "You kids didn't write th!l sexy mag'azines or produce the 'Baby Dolls' which so easily rot your youthful minds." . Father Egan said that as a re­ lult of this climate of sin It Is not amazing that "we have mixed-up kids,' but that, w. ,,"haven't more'of them." Stating that teen-agel's have been made the "scapegoat" of it all, he concluded: "It's about time you stood up on your feet and said: 'You started it. Why blame us?'" Fat,her Egan conducted a re­ treat last yeat· for students at the Sacred Hearts Academy In Fall River.

This dignity does not merely extend to the body. but it extends to the soul and the whole person dedicated to God.

This Is the way it is defined In the majority of textbooks', in popular writing, and in the pub­ lic mind. But mal'1'lage Is more than a mere companionship. It is by Its very nature companion­ ship with a purpose. This purpose is parenthood. Parenthood Is not something incidental to mar­ riage, a mere matter of choices. It is Inl'\..erent In the very nature of marital companionship. for love between man and woman tends to, be productive and crea­ tive. Its ti'ue significance, its ability to provide for the couple's fullest development and self­ realization lies In its reproductive character. The companionship of husband and wite grows and finds real fulfillment !Jnly in the childbearing and child rearing process.

Continue to gaze, and we see that it cannot be changed into anything else, it cannot by any natural process be destroyed. We baby ang'els, all cute and cuddly, have at last arrived at the which disfigure our' children', deepest truth about spirit­ books, have nothing to do with

-

spirit is the being which has a permanent hold upon what it is, so that it can never become any­ thing else. Material beings can be destroy­ ed in ·the sense that they can be broken up into their constitu­ ent parts: what has parts. can be taken apart, But a partless being Ii e s be­ yond all this. Nothing can be taken from it. because there is nothing in it but its whole self. We can conceive, of course. of its whole selt' being takell out of existence. This would be annihilation. But just as only God can create from nothing by willing to exist, so only God can reduce a being to nothing by willing it no longer to exist: and for the human soul. . God has told us that He will not thus will it out of existence'. Retains Identity A spiritual" being. therefore, cannot lose its identity. It can experience changes in its I'elation to other beings - e.g. it can gain new knowledg'e or lose knowledge that it has; it call transfer its' love from this object to that; it can develop its power over mat­ ter; its own body can'cease to respond fo its ai\imating power and death follows for the body ­ but with all these .-changes it remains itself. conscious of itself, permanent in .the flux of things. indeed by memory dominating the' flux and bringing the parts under tribute. casting its hold forward over the future. The student to whom all this is new should keep on thinking over these truths. turning' back to them at odd moments - on the way to wor~ in periods of in­ sonmia, He should keep on look­ ing at the relation between hav­ ing parts and occupying' space till he sees, really sees, that a partless being' cannot be in space. He should keep on looking at th.e relation between having parts and ceasing to exist. till he sees as clearly that a partless. being cannot ever be anything but it­ self. Spaceless Reality

But the battle is never won. Space will come creeping back. We find ourselves, for example, thinking of sin as a stain on the soul. This is a common figure of speech, and does no harm .to the instructed ·mind. But we are not ready for figul'es of speech yet, we should stick to plain prose. A stain is a discoloration. a color that happens to be the wrong color in that, particular place. But you cannot have colpr with­ out space; the soul does not oc­ cupy spac~, and is no suitable ground, therefore, for discolora­ tion. .We should try to bring to­ gether, .all these separate truths about spirit. One way is to con­ centrate upon our own soul, the . spirit we know best - wholly it­ self, doing each thing that it does with its whole self. We may think of the soul as a machine, with no parts, possessing its existence, g'enerating its ideas. in the one simple, spaceless reality which It is. Materialism Repulsive The ideas it gen.erates are not in sp'ace, but they have brought the conquest of space within our reach - if they do not blow' our world into outer sp9,ce first. And with all that power, the human soul is the lower,t of. spirits. The' least of the rtuge1r.' is unim!l.gin­ ably St1ne.-:~l' iii [>ower. (those

angels) . It is not enough to have leamt what spirit is. We must build the knowledge into the very structul'O of our minds. Seeing spiritual reality must become one of the mind's habits. When it does, we have. reached th"'e first stage of maturity. Materialism, however persuasively argued can ho lang­ eI" take hold of us. We may not always be able to answer the arguments, but it makes no dif­ ference. Materialism is repulsive. all our mental habits are set against it. It is as if a scientist were to produce arguments In favor of walking on all fours: we should find the idea repulsive, all our bodily habits would be set against us. That indeed is no bad comparisol}. The man who knows 'of the universe of spirit walk. upright, the materialist hugs the earth. . Next week we come at lut t'o God.

Church Parking, Lots Sought by Planners BURLINGTON (NC) - New churches here would be required to provide one off-street park­ ing space for every 10 seats un­ del' a proposed change in the city's zoning regulations. Under the plan, retail stores, schools. auditoriums and similar places of public and private as­ sembly also would be compelled to furnish off-street parking' areas at the tilrie new buildings were constructed. The.reco'mmendations are in­ cluded in a preliminary report written by the City Planning Commission, which has been stUdying the zoning ordinance for several months.

PONTIAC (Nc)-For yearl. Michigan residents hayt Joked' about "going to Pontiac"-mean- . lng of cour~ the mental hospital. This city o( 75,000 has lonl been associated with mental ill­ iless because o( the sprawlinl state hospital (or the mentally 111 located here. But' this year, "going to Pon­ tiac" has a new meaning. Ii means that everyone is really go­ ing to' the Pontiac institution. They are going, not because they are mentally ill, but to prove that the mentally iJI can be cured. Figuring prominently in tho renewed interest in Michigan's problems In caring for the men­ tally ill are clubs for future social workers which were ol:ganized a.1I st. Frederick's and st. Micl1ael's high schools here. These clubs are among the first of their kind in the U. S. They were organized by Margue­ rite M. Parish, director of social service at the state hospital. Lat­ er other clubs ~ere organize!! at Pontiac public high school and Ferndale high school in Oakland county. . A band of professional Catho­ lic social workers in Oakland and' Wayne counties has volunteered to teach religion at the stat. hospital during their spare tim•. Other citizens groups' also vol­ unteered their services. Working with professionals in the hospital's recreation and edu­ cational therapy programs,th. volunteers visit the' iilstitutlon several times each week. - They read to 'small groups o( patients, teach them how' to paint. 'to make paper flowers, to stage plays, and to make cor­ . sages. Others sponsor da.nces and evening entertainment.

Though no premium housel list school buses in their cata­ logues, the stamp books do have a cash value. With JudicioUl trading, it seems possible to ob­ tain almost anything with them.

AnnOl1ncements were made at

Sunday Masses and a box Wal placed In the church vestibule to receive the books. In a few weeks so many stamps had been collec- ­ ed that, with the trade-in on the old bus, It was possible to buy a new school bus at' no cost to the parish. .

It is an astounding fact of history that three small children, 40 years ago, knew more about the way the world was going than did the most prescient historian. Two of the youngsters were shepherdesses-Lucia dos Santos, 10, and Jacinta Marto, 7. The third was a stop offending God, a more ter­ rible war would follow. But that So h e p her d boy, Jacinta's was' impossible, as everybody brother Francis, 9. knew. A more terrible war than

WASHINGTON (NC)-FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover :has directed a blistering attack upon "parasitic peddlers" cf obscene material for their "degrading influence on youth and American communities."

Soviets Request Mission History TECHNY, lll. (NC) - Now what do they want that for?

The order came from the Lenin National Library in Moscow­ yep, the one In Russia. The order requests a copy of the ,book "Gold Coast Mission History, 1471-1880," written by Divine Word Father Ralph W.· Wiltgen and published here at the community's U. S. head­ quarters. The volume was written earlier this year before the West Coast became Independent and changed Its name to Ghana.

"a breakdown In this basic phase of adult responsibility Is clearly evidenced by the spiraling youth crime statistics." "Parents, school authorities and law-abiding citizens • • • must share the duty of reporting sources of obscene material to the proper officials." Mr. Hoover said that "too often the purveyor of filth • • • reaps a rich reward as a result of lack­ adaisical public opposition to his evil occupation." "Public opinion and coordinat­ ed action," he concluded, "can sound the death knell for the obscene material peddler."

the World War? Then the war did end, as the children had predicted; but people did not fall to their kn~es begging to be spared the next conflict. Had not the war been the war to end wa.rs-to make the world safe for democracy? Still Brushed Aside Mankind was too drunk with the heady wine of the armistice to listen to the children. The statesmen, In their top hats, rode to the peace conferences, and the young shepherds were brushed aside. But I am gi.ving the wrong impression. The children were not really brushed aside except by a handful cf men-albeit men representative of the times. Newsmen filed stories from Portugal about the Miracle of the Sun and about the children who said the Virgin Mary was appear­ ing to them, but the dispatches were tossed into wastebaskets by editors in other countries-edi­ tors much too shrewd to swallow any nonsense about the super· natural. Horizon Brightening Mankind, therefore, did not hear, until 25 years later, about how Russia was going to "spread her errors through the world. giving rise to wars and persecu­ tions." By that time, much of toe prophesied tragedy already had come to pass. , . But the world at least did hear, and millions turned to God in prayer, trustin'g in the promise of Our Lady that ultimately "my Immaculate Heart will triumph; Russia will be converted, and an ' . era of peace will be granted to mankind." Millions are reciting the Rosa­ ry daily. Millions receive Com· munion on the first Saturday of each month. Millions wear the scapular. In this fortieth anni­ versary year of Fatima, the hori­ zon at least. is brightening and not darkening.

Pope's Pax Romana Talk Hits at Isolationism By Donald McDonald Pope Pius XII's address last week to Pax Romana, the international movement of Catholic intellectuals dedicated to world peace, should quiet, for a while at least, the shriil' :voices of those American Catholic isolationists and xenophobes who have ,been pre, tending, for a number of done this with reference to the ears now that their strang'e further Question of an organized "world community." In other Y notion of in~ernational rela­ words, the Pope does not stop to

tions is the, only one to which loyal Americans and orthodox C@-tholics can subscribe. Despite over­ whelming evi­ dence from the

Vatican to the ~

contrary, such 1-;'

Catholic' publi­ cations as, The

Tidings of Los

The

Angeles, Wanderer of st. Paul, Tablet of Brooklyn, and periodic editorials by Father Ginder in Our Sunday , Visitor have sought to convince their readers that:' 1) The United Nations is doomed because it, is not a for­ mally Christian organization; 2) ThoSe w 0 l' k 1'n g towards world federalism are nothing but despicable 'one - worldeJ:s' who are -either stupid or traitorous; 3) In any event, Catholics have no business working with nonCatholic and non-religious per­ 80ns towards any kind of even a limited world federation which, like the U. N., is foredoomed to failure because of. its religiously pluralist foundations. Vatican Attitude

I

As I say, there has been literalIy overwhelming evidence from the Vatican contrary to the above position. The fact that the Holy Fathe~ has given monetar'y donations to various' U. N. welfare agencies; that he has al~ays greeted U. N. personnel warmly and sympathe­ tically and encouragingly; that the Vatican has for years main­ tained official observers in such organizations as UNESCO; and that the Pope has spoken out not only on behalf of the U. N., but also, as in 1951 and again in December, 1953. in favor of a federated world community for the purpose of effectively outJawing international war and armament races _ I say, the fact that such evidence has been both plain and 'abundant has not de­ terred the isolationist sowers of fear and suspicion in our midst. These people simply do not ad­ vert to the Holy Father's ,words' or actions which are nothing more nor less than re-statements of the Church's traditional teaching on the natural law and positive law so far as they relate to international life. 0

Pope's Answer There comes now Pius XII's most recent address to Pax Ro­ mana. Fearlessly. the, Pope asks the critical Question: Can Catho­ lic intellectuals, who adhere to a body of doctrine as given- them by the infallible magisterium of the Church.. collaborate in the service of the world community in institutions where God is not' expressly recognized as author 811d legislator of the universe?' The Pope's answer: Such_Catll­ oIlcs not only can. they must. work toward this world com­ munity which. he says, lsstill In formation. . The Pope distinguished be­ tween various levels of coopera­ tion open to CatholicS in the situation he presents. I am awatt­ ing the complete text of this lmportant talk and when it arrives. I shall pass along here, the Holy Father's distin~tions. Organized World Communi.ty The fundamental point noVl is that the Pope has given a general -affirmative answer to the Q.ues­ ti6n of Cathollcs collaborating with unbelievers. And he has

"argue" whether or not such a world community, is needed. He assumes it is needed. He does not concede that the' world com­ munity issue is any longer argu­ able. From the news story of his Pax Romana address, we can gather some of the reasons advanced 'by the Pope for Catholic collabora-' tion with unbelievers in the cause of'world peace and an effectively organized world community. For the Christian, he says, ';all men are his brothers, not only by virtue of the unity of origin and participation in the same nature. but also in a more pressing man­ ner through their common call­ ing to a supernatw'al life. Valid Common Good "Minds free of prejudices and passions," continues the Pope, "can come ,to an agreement and help each other in behalf of a real and valid common good, for healthy reasoning suffices to es~ tablish bases of the, rights of peoples, to recognize the inviol­ able character of the person. dignity of the family, and pre­ rogatives and limits of publio authority. \ "This ·.is why cooperation of Catholics is desirable in all insti­ tutions which, 'in theory and ,practice,A' respect natural law. They will seek to maintain insti­ tutions in the proper line of action and to play a helpful rOle through their presence." Supernatural M:oti~ation Does anything in his Pax Romana talk contradict what the Pope has said in recent years about, the ihdispensabillty of the "Christian spirit" in world peace ' organizations? I think not. He reminds Catholics that they should always keep in mind "the' highest goal" as they work with others for world peace. "For a Christian, the will of Christ ie the ultimate reason of his choices and decisions .. ." That is, while unbelievers may have their sights 'lowered to a natural horizon. the Christian. with supernatural motivations, can and must collaborate "on be­ - half of a real and valld common good .. ." Catholic Isolationists Though the unbellever may be in pursilit of simply "pure rea­ "son," the Catholic must cooper­ ate with him. And in any event. this exclusive peoccupation with the rational can, reminds the Holy Father. mark the coming of God in the hearts and· social institutions of the unbellevers. In the beginning of t~is piece; I cited. several publications noted for their unbending isolationism. I did so, not to' embarrass those publications (a difficult and pro- ' fltless task), but to remind read­ ers (who may drowsily think the Pope 18 stating obvious truth;;) tl)at a ,vociferous segment of American Catholicism remains unconvinced: And, too often, those outside the Church. con­ fusing loudness with atuhorita­ tiveness. think It 18 this minority segment which speaks for the Church on international matters.

Hollywood in Focus

Wide Screen Movies Need Su'itable Story Material' By William H. M:oori~g Sincewide screen became the general thing my reader mail indicates a wide opinion of two to one that movies are bigger, not better. It was inevitable, to begin ,with, that Cinemascope, VistaVision, Todd-AO and similar magnifi­ cation processes, like a new toy with a child, would di­ be said of several new screen­ vert the attention of film plays not yet publicly viewed. MOM's "The Vintage", which producers from older con­ takes us through the gorgeous cerns, Including some' basic es­ lentlals. Stories, fOr Instance. The mOre impressive and sweeping the backgrounds the greater the need for strona story material and ac­ celerated power In Its presenta­ tion. Hollywood moguls sensed this too. They began to play up, es­ pecially In !I1ms they made abroad, the mOre violent and vi­ cious attributes of foreign com­ munities featured on the SCreen. This was intended to heighten contrasts and InCrease shock. One alarlng example was "House of Bamboo" with Japanese- and American GI's as black mark­ eteerS and aambllni hoodlums: • bad ItorY with fasclnatina and informative backgrounds. Often Nauseatlnr Hollywood companies sent to nlake 1I1ms, In the far corners of the earth, aimed at stories with the neo-realistic flavor of the black and white pictures from France, Italy and Sweden, which usually run in our "art" thea­ ters. Decked up In Technicolor on the Cinemascope screen such Hollywood efforts produced • cinematic hybrid In which mal­ admixture of foreign intrigue and typical movie spectacle cre­ ated an effect something like lerving one's guests dill pickle on angel food cake with passion fruit dressing. Results were just as unappetizing and as often neuseatlna. Those who recall "The Revolt of Mamie Stover" (which 20th century Fox officials trY hard not to do!) J'emember most the disappointment of a vicarious trip to lovely Hawaii, during which, while yearning to stay among the palm-fringed hills and beaches, they were trapped in an ugly "dive", with Jape Russell and the boys. No one was so deprived when Para­ mount took us Into the snow­ capped Alps to see Spencer Tracy and Robert Wagner climb "The Mountain", nor can anyone, however critical he may be, have been "Around the World In 80 Days" without feeling the trip had been worthwhile. Story as well at setting's guaranteed that much. Story vs. Backg-round Other recent movies have well lived up to the purpose of telling tales we found as novel and In­ teresting as the terrain against which they unfolded. "Heaven Knows, Mister Allison", on To­ bago island in British West In­ dies; "The Brave One", in Mexi­ co; "Teahouse of the August Moon" In Okinawa. even "GI­ ant", dealing with our own sprawling Texas, are good ex­ amples of this. Still others are on the way. Some new films stili feature weak stories enacted in wonderful, places but the per­ centage in which badly integrat­ ed story quarrels with superb background, Is diminishing. Was there ever more raptu­ ous, authentic scenery t han that' in "Boy On A Dolphin"? The Agean islands, Athens with its ancient Partenon, the Acrop­ olls and the amazing mountain­ top monastery of Meteora, lit­ erally take the average Ameri­ can "out of this world". MOre deft integration of story with background and less daUiance with the physical attributes of Sophia Loren might have en­ 'JUred a morally acceptable, com­ pletely dellghtful and vividly in­ formative movie. The same may

vinyards of Southern France; "The Living Idol", moving from ancient Yu.catan ruins to the modern and spectacular univers­ ity at Mexico City and "Inter­ lude" which shows us time-mel­ lqwed Munich and the magnifi­ cent Austrian mountains, reflect some literary triteness which de­ feats total effect. They ~re much less disappointing, however, than many of the earlier wide screen efforts. Welcome Trend Apart from moral and social aspects which may spur discus­ sion later, both "The Prince and the Showgirl", . which co-stars Sir Laurence Olivier and Marilyn Monroe and "Something of Value", a vital, provocative story about the Mau-Mau In East Af­ rica, present strong stories that are served, not dominated by their settines. "The Prince and the Showgirl" gives us a verita­ ble tour-de-luxe of old London and catches the spirit of its peo­ ple at coronation time. Then we are soon to get "Joe Butterfly," • humorous and believable tale about GIs In. Tokyo. Still more are on the way, which if looked at as enteratlnment seem to point a welcome trend towards movies that are not only bigger but dramatically better than we were getting on the old stan­ dard-sized screen. Condemnat[on Hurt Hollywood trade paper "Dally Variety" invariably obits stories attesting the effectiveness of the Legion of Decency: plays up stories painting the Legion as indefensible or ineffective, There­ for repeat this among your .friends. On its front page, May 1st, "Daily Variety" reported as fol­ lows:­ "Although Warner Brothers 111 giving It the hush-hUsh treat­ ment, it's obvious 'Baby Doll' (condemned by the Legion) has succumbed to the obstacle course prepared for it by the National Legion of Decency. "It's now es-' timated 'Baby Doll" may play no more than 4,000 dates (mean­ Ing will show in less than 4,000 of the nation's 18,OOO-odd thea­ ters)-or only 25 %. of its po­ tential. "Attempts to get Warners to provide figures on the number of actual bookings and of theater cancellations are .unsuccessful, reflecting the company's concern with the situation." This column can inform "Daily Variety" that a large number of local theaters cancelled this film as a result of quiet but firm united public action. In short "Baby" got a well-deserved spanking to which the whole Hollywood anatomy will long ache in sympathetic reminder. Catholics have shown that rights to free speech and assembly be­ long to the mllJions Bs well as the few.

Women Against Right to Work Legislation OINCINNATI (NC) - More than 1,000 members of the Arch­ diocesan Council of Catholic Women promised action in their families to' make Baptism's meaning and gifts more easily understood: Meeting at the fifth annual ACCW convention, they resolved to }) Choose godparents for their apostolic qualities 2) Select the child's name from the roll of great Church heroes 3) Teach the child about his patron saint and celebrate his name day 4) Provide candle and robe for the child that he may always have these symbols of eternal light, and spotlessness 5) Celebrate the occasion of baptism lIturlt1callY, and the an­ niversary' of baptism fittingly 6) Use baptismal vows for family prayers on anniversaries and on Holy Saturday. The ACCW opposed a "right to work" bill pending in the Ohio Assembly because it "can prove' dangerous to union aecurity and usually leadll to Indust,rial unrest and conflict between labor and management."

Prelate Urges Temple Perm,it 'ST LOUIS (NC) - A nearby city's refusal to issue a building permit for a Jewish chapel brought a protest that the action violated the first and 14th Amendments of the Constitution. Archbishop Joseph E. Ritter of St. Louis, and the (Protestant) Metropolitan Church Federation both were granted rights of par­ ticipation in the suit filed. by the Jewish congregation, Temple Is­ rael, against the City of Creve Coeur. The ArchQishop contended that the City of Creve Coeur violated two amendments 'be­ cause it affected the free exer­ cise of religion and the rightl of religious groups to acquire land to use for religious purposes• Creve Coeur also brought com­ ment from the Archbishop last summer when It moved to con­ demn property purchased by a physician at.St. Louis University, Dr. Howard Venable, for a public park, after it learned Dr. Ven­ able was a Negro. The Arch­ bishop protested the condemna­ tion as an obvious case of racial discrimination.
