Some' Letters to the Pope On His Golden Jubilee Continued from Page One here in New York for forwarding to the Vatican. The writers included priests, Brothers, seminarians-but the real gems were from youngsters in orphanages, grade and- high .schools. Some bore the suspicion that adult help was involved, but others - well here are some samples: "Dear Holy Father, I was told that you just celebrated your 50th anniversary. I am very proud to be a Christian under such a fine Pope. The reason I am writting this is to prove that .a 13-year-old appreciates your painstaking work for peace and well being among men. I will say , some prayers for you tonight." "Dear Holy Father, I am a boy attending school at Mary Help of Christians School. I am in the eighth grade and attend Mass. I hope to pass this year. I have a 79 average. I am for priest not getting married because he would not devote his life to God. Because he would have to woriTy about his wife and children. "Dear Holy Father, I am in the eighth grade and 100 percent behind you. Father, please pray for me because I need help in my studies. I do not want to go to summer school. Thank you! I know that this will be your 50tn anniversary in the priesthood: Please write." "Dear Holy Father, How are you? I hope you have one of the best 50th year in priesthood. I'm an 8th grader in one of the greatest schools I think in the world. Your Catholic boy." "Dear Holy Father, There's one thing to say, Have a Happy Feast Day! The new order of the Mass was changed, yes, but it's too long. Well, I'm no Pope you know, but if you could shorten it a little, more people would come. They would have the time to spare. But still I'm right behind you all the way. If you have time send me an answer." "Dear Holy Father, Hi, there. I hope you are fine. I am. My n:lme is Jim. I go to a Salesian School in the United States. I used to read a lot about you sometimes when I get a paper a~d your name is mentioned. "It must be pretty hard being a leader like that.

Report Portuguese P'riest Arrested LISBON (NC) - A priest. is said to be among 10 persons reported arre~ted here as sympathizers of an African nationalist movement in the Portuguese territory of Angola in West Africa. The report was contained in a statement by the Security Services which claimed that the Popular Movement for the Liberation of Angola believed ma,inly responsible for the unrest of the Angolan frontiers has begun to recruit supporters in Portugal. The authorities released the names of six of the arrested persons but not that of the priest. However, there was speculation here that he is Father Joaquin Pinto de Andrade, brother of Mario Pinto de Andrade, one of the movement's founders. The Security Services contended that those arrested have close contacts with the Communist party and are members of illegal organizations promoting terrorist activities in Portugal's African territories.

I have an idea of what you look like. I hope you have a happy 50th annivers~ry to the priesthood. "You should see some of the Brothers here. There all pretty neat. I ,like all of them and I know they like me. They really take good care of us. Well I have ,got to go: now but do me a favor and say some prayers for me. "Dear Pope, I congratulate you on your 50th anniversary. I realize that you have a lot to do so I'll try not to make this too long. "I go to a school which is run by the Salesians of Don Bosco. I enjoy going very much and I am very happy for: you. I don't have a father but a mother I have and she is in debt trying to make up with all the payments but she loves me and' I'm glad of that. I have a brother, also who is very nice to me. I hope you have a nice anniversary. P. S. I'm sorry for writing in pencil but it's all I have."

Sees Decrease In Violence COLLEGEVILLE (NC)-An official of the Southern Christian 'Leadership Conference, the civil rights group founded by the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., told a graduation audience here in Minnesota that violence in the world is decreasing. "I can't despair at the level of hostility and violence in the world _today," Rev. Andrew Young, conference vice-president, told graduates of St. John's University. "It's just that mass communications and increased travel have brought more'of what there is of it to our doorsteps." Rev. Mr. Young made his remarks after he and Charleston's Bishop Ernest L. Unterkoefler received the school's Pax Christi awards at the largest graduation ceremony in St. John's history. The 38-year-old United Church of Christ minister is presently running for Congress from the stllte of Georgia. If elected, he will be Georgia's first black representative in either house since ,the Reconstruction era following the Civil War.

Bring Anti-Abortion Suit in Philadelphia PHILADELPHIA (NC)-Three ,citizens' groups, two of them Catholic, have joined to seek a court order prohibiting Jeffer~son Hospital here from permitting abortions in violation of the Pennsylvania penal code. Members of the Philadelphia Committee of Concerned Citizens 'for the, Unborn, the' National Federation of Catholic Physicians~ Guilds and the XavierDamian and Chi Rho Mu ChrisWm Life communities joined in the suit. Jefferson Hospital's abortion practices came into the news in December when a doctor burned his diploma on the hospital's steps to protest the institution's relaxed abortion policies.

For Blind Persons Bible Society Develops Tape Ccis!)ettes Of New Testament NEW YORK (NC) - A new service to the spiritual needs of blind persons in the form of tape cassettes of the New Testament has been developed by the American Bible Society. A cassette is about half the size of pack of king-size cigarettes. The entire New Testament can be recorded on 15 of them. ' When the Bible was first recorded for the blind under the "Talking Scripture" program in 1935 it required 170 records at 78 RPM speed-With the introduction of slower speed records, this was reduced to 67 records in 1964. The convenience for blind persons of the Scriptures recorded on the tape cassettes is in contrast with the 18 thick volumes which the Bible takes up when transcribed in Braille.' The taped edition.. of the Bible was the work of the Rev. Dr. Dale C. Recker, the Bible Society's secretary for ,the blind. Dr. Recker began losing his own sight from a retina disease while he was pastor of the First English Lutheran ,church in Cleveland Heights, Ohio. Still young, vigorous and mentally alert; Dr. Recker learned Braille and continued his pastorai ministry for 15 years before joining the staff of the Bible Society in 1964. But he was aware that many people, particularly those who lose their sight late in life, do

not learn Braille. For them, talking records-and more recently tapes-provide their only contact with the world of books. The Library of Congress loans' tapes and record players without cost to persons who are defined as legally blind. According to Dr. Recker, a person who sees less at 20 feet than the normal person can see at 200 feet" is considered legally blind. Dr. Recker's chief concern is reaching the approximately 425,000 blind persons in this country with the services the Bible Society has available for them. Thus far, less than five per cent -some 17,000 persons:-have availed themselves of the Scriptures in Braille, talking records or tapes. The ecumenically administered American Bible Society has included Roman Catholic representation the past two years.

WASHINGTON (NC) - The 285 Catholic bishops of the United States, in a letter given to Pope' Paul VI at the Vatican by Cardinal John Dearden of Detroit, expressed "deep joy" over the Pope's 50th anniversary in the priesthood. ' The National Conference of Catholic Bishops told the Pontiff, in the' letter. that a bronze plaque marking the May 29 golden jubilee would be placed in the National Shrine of the 1m-maculate Conception in Washington, D.C., as "a visible reminder of this memorable occasion" for the shrine's visiting tourists. Cardinal Dearden, conference president, gave the letter to the Pope while in Rome for a May meeting of the Council of the General Secretariat of the Synod of Bishops. "Without a doubt," the letter said, "this event serves not only as an occasion of special happiness for the entire Church but also as an opportunity to reflect prayerfully upon the great mystery of the Priesthood itself." 'IIlI Common Faith' The congratulatory letter noted that the U.S. bishops had asked, at their April semiannual meeting in San Francisco, that Cardinal Dearden "communicate to Your Holiness their prayerful congratulations and heartfelt good wishes." The letter said the bishops had voted unanimously to observe the papal anniversary with special Masses and other ceremonies in their dioceses on either May 24 or May 31-the Sundays before and after the Friday anniversary date. "In union of heart and mind and in a common faith," the letter concluded, "we pray Christ the High Priest' to bless you abuntantly and to grant length of years in inspiring service to the Church, over which Your Holiness rules with such dedication and love,"

Montana Solons Consider New Anti-Smut Bill HELENA (NC)-The Montana Legislature will be asked next year to enact a new anti-obscenity law which conforms to recent decision of the U. S. Supreme Court, The request will be made by Montana's Criminal Law Commission, headed by Associate Justice Wesley Castles of the state· supreme court. In any prosecution for an obscenity offense, evidence would be' admitted to show: The predominant appeal of the material. The artistic, literary, scientific, cducational or other merits of the material. The degree of public acceptancc. The appeal to the prurient interest in the advertising, and the purpose of the author or disseminator. Violation of the proposed law would be a misdemeanor, carrying a fine not to ~xceed $500 or a jail sentence not to exceed six months or both. Castles's commi.ssion was directed by the legislature to revise the state's criminal codes. Primary thrust of the proposed law is to protect persons under 18 years old, Castles said. The proposal is a major change from present law, he· said, because the Montana codes do not now define the crime of obscenity in any way which can be enforced. The commission's draft says: "A thing is obscene if, considered as a whole, its predominant appeal is to prurient interest, that is, a morbid interest in violence, nudity, sex, or excretion."

Win Awards PITISBURGH (NC)-Two staff members of the Pittsburgh Catholic, diocesan newspaper, were among winners in the 10th annual competition for Golden Quill Awards given for journalistic excellence in western Pennsylvania.

Franciscan Sisters Create Home-Like Life For 51 Children in New Bedford Home By Ellen Andrew The late Most Rev. James E. Cassidy, bishop of the Diocese of Fall River, once told an open house at 'St. Mary's Home in New Bedford, "We can thank God for the many friends, living and dead, whose deeds of kindness to the little ones of St. Mary's carry out the words of Christ, who said, " 'Suffer the children to come to me and forbid them not.' " And so it is with the biggest family living in New Bedford at 593 Kempton Street. It includes 51 children, 28 boys'"and 23 girls, ranging in age from 6 to 12; 10 Glen Riddle Sis-· ters of the Third Order of St. Francis, Philadelphia Foundation, and Rev. William W. Norton, a Fall River native, and the home's director. True Home' St. Mary's is a home in the true sense and not to be confused with an institution for orphans, which it isn't. "It is a substitute home for the victims of broken homes," says Fath'er Norton. "It is not as good as the real thing, of course, but better than nothing at alL" Its inhabitants also ine from homes where parents are temporarily unable to care for their children.. "They are overwhelmed with the problems of the day and need help," the director continued. "We help the situation by taking the children." Not all mothers are "Mom" nor are all fathers "Dad." But at St. Mary's, Sister Mary Cherubina, O.S.F., the superior, and her nuns are "Moms" in a lot of ways just as is Father Norton the "Dad!" Happy Home "It is a happy home," Sister Cherubina remarked, "but as Father Norton mentioned, there is no substitute for the real home in bringing up a child. We just do our best in providing for the best for our young people of the area (Greater New Bedford, Cape Cod and the.-Islands). "Our main job is to provide that much-needed affectiOn these children lack to make little

. ladies .and gentlemen out of them. We can't expect this to supplant the home. That's one reason we don't like to keep any one child here more than two or three years. "We don't want them to feel institutionalized, nor do we want the child to become too de;:endent or attached to us." Home 76 Years Old In September, 1894, five Glen Riddle Sisters of the Third Order of St. Francis, Philadelphia Foundation, arrived in New Bedford to open St. Mary's Home, an institution for orphans and the aged~ Forty-one youngsters and oldsters, from 3 to 73 found warmth and care at St. Mary's that first year. As the needs of the Fall River Diocese took on new dimensions, St. Mary's channeled its concern to meet those needs. At present, its main concern rests in the care of deprived and neglected children. . Today, 76 years later, 10 Glen Riddle Franciscans still staff St. Mary's, caring for the 51 children, from 6 to 12, which is the home's intake policy. CurricUlum St. Mary's children' attend school in the home because most of them have learning disabilities due, in many cases, to parental neglect. , The children's day is a busy one. Besides their regular academic studies, they have the advantage of, many extra-curricular activities such as typing, reo medial reading, sewing, cooking, woodworking etc. . ' Weekends and holidays usually are fun-filled due to the generosity of the home's many kind benefactors such as the Infant of Prague Guild. All teachers at St. Mary's are certified. ,The home's "faculty" includes Sister Mary Georgiana, O.S.F., Grades I, 2 and 3; Sister Ronald Marie, O.S.F., Grades 4, 5 and 6; Sister Marie Denis, O.S,F., Grades 7 and 8. Sister Marie Timothy, O.S.F., girls' house mother; Sistre Benedicta Marie, O.S.F., boys' house mother.

Sister Mary Dativa, O.S.F., who, for 40 years, has been' cooking at St. Mary's; Sister Mary Josita, O.S.F., convent sistcr; Sister James Maureen, O.S.F., . children's '. dining room, and Si~ter Ann Gertrude, O.S.F., clerical work. The 10th, of course, is Sister Mary Cherubina, the superior and "Jack-of-all-trades." "I don't know what I'd do without her," says Father Norton who was appointed director of St. Mary's' Home last March. "I lean heavily on Sister Cherubina. I have' great respect for her advice and judgement." Sister Cherubina is in the sixth year or' her second threeyear term and will be leaving St. Mary's soon for a new assignment. "I have no idea where it will be,"said this dedicated nun who, in her 35 years as God's servant, has served 10 years at St. Michael's Orphanage in Hopewell, N. J., and was principal of the all-colored St. Elizabeth's High School in Philadelphia. Sister 'Cherubina onfy recently received the Marian Medal at the Teacher's Convention in Attleboro for "personal interest in the social work of the Fall River Diocese." Father Norton is thoroughly wrapped up in his work at St. Mary's and one can't help but think he enjoys his new post immensely. "That's right, I do," he says with a smile. '"There is so much to be done for young people that is God's wish. There aren't

cnough hours in the day for me. "I knew, before I came here, of a priest's work with boys and girls at the parish level. But I never dreamed one could have such a profound effect on the lives of so many young people here. "Onc never knows, while passing St. Mary's, what really goes on behind our walls. There is so much dong. Problems? Yes, but there are h'appy moments and rewarding ones, too." 'What so ever you do to the the least of my brothers, that you do unto me.' "These words of Christ," Sister Cherubina pointed out, "have a special significance to Glen Riddle Franciscans. They consider it a privilege to work with these children. "We hope to do so in the years to come, keeping in mind that while we have the child of today before us now, we are training the young man and woman of tomorrow."

But it may also be a flaring-up of deep-rooted hatreds, or the perverse attempt to set race' against race an4 religion against religion. In any case, the recent desecration of two Greater Boston Jewish houses of worship is a revolting act- that strikes both fear and concern into the hearts of all sincer~ men of good will. The damage that was done to the buildings and to the Sacred Scriptures has prompted a "public expression of concern" from nine Massachusetts church leaders. But every person must ma,ke this his own concern. If this desecration was the result of anti-Semitism, then it is to be deplored as an outrageous act of irreligion. If it is the result of vandalism, then adequate protection must be given to those institutions in our society that stand not for money o,r for business but for the very basics of civilization, for spiritual values. If the outrage resulted from a desire to pit one race or religion against another, then those who deal in such twisted machinations must be shown to be wrong. It is sad when all ~hat is held holy and inviolable is profaned in a brutal way. But if the act makes men of all races and religions more conscious of the positive values that all hold in common-belief, in God; reverence for the things of God, respect for one another's consciences"':'-theq the outrage will not have been without a redeeming aspect.

Not a Word. But' an Action The watchword of today seems to be "involvement.'~ Happily in some instances, it is hot, only a slogan but an action. : This is the case with the recently-completed Catholic I Charities Appeal, the most successful of alL Men and women from all over the Diocese and their friends of other religions joined in contributing to the Appeal because they believe in involvement and wished to share in it: Not too many persons have the time or the skills or the inclination to teach exceptional children,. to care for the sick in the Rose Hawthorne Lathrop Home, to counsel unwed mothers, to give lectures to the engaged, to arrange for adoptions, to minister to the aged and the chronic sick. But these same persons know that, this is the work of involvement, this is the work of the person dedicated to, all that is finest in .the Judeo-Christian tradition, this is God's own work. And it must be done. So those' who' gave to the Charities Appeal have involved thel1)selves in God's work by supporting the thirty.' one agencies that care for God's poor and exceptional and! worried, that reach out to those who need care 'and counsel! and understanding. ' These contributors have taken from their substance to aid those who are giving their lives in these works of kindness and charity. , ' These contributors have not only talked involvement-, they have practiced it. To them it is not just a word~it is an action.

WASHINGTON (NC) - Seven U. S. senators who oppose the nation's involvement in the war in Indochina have called on President Nixon for immediate sale of jets to Israel and intensified U. S. efforts "toward stable peace in the Middle EjJst." In a letter to the White House, the senators explained their concern "that the Soviet Union may be misinterpreting the spirited national debate" over the war in Indochina "as a sign that our nation will not take effective steps to protest our vital interests in the Middle East." Contents of the letter were reo vealed by Sen. George McGovern (D-S.D.) in «losing sessions of the national biennial convention of the American Jewish Congress here. Signers of the letter were Sens. McGovern and Charles Goodell (R-N.Y.), Alan Cranston (D-Calif.), Harold Hughes ~D. Iowa), Stephen M. Young (DOhio), Philip A. Hart (D-Mich.) and Thomas F. Eagleton (D-Mo.). In a speech to some 500 delegates, McGovern said an administratipn decision to sell Israel the Phantom jets would mean "that we do not intend. to let Israel slip desperateJY;t. to t~e razor's edge of survi'vlt1'and thitt we mean to exerclse our inflUence in that vital area of tile world." Earlier in the five-day convention Sen. Hugh Scott (R-Penn.) also urged immediate sale of the jets to Israel and "on long term credit."

Nightly Strolls in Woods D,elight Bird Watch1ers By Joseph and· Marilyn Roderick

ST. LOUIS (NC) - Delegates from 33 different religious orders of women, representing virtually all the 3,000 Sisters in the archdiocese of St. Louis, voted at a meeting here to establish the St. .·Louis archdiocesan Council' of R~ligious Women. 'The council, first proposed to the Sisters last December by Cardinal John Joseph Carberry, intends to encourage unity among the religious women working here, to help plan and coordinate educational programs for Sisters and to encourage "gospel service to all the people of the archdiocese," A steering committee, headed by Sister Jane Stimiman, S.C.M.M., will continue to oversee the formation of the council until elections are held next year. The only opposition to the council came from members of Action, a local civil rights group, which distributed a statement to the Sisters asking them to support Action instead of the Catholic Church, which it called "another racist institution," The statement said the nuns could demonstrate support by "resigning from your present order and join with the Sisters of the People, a new humanistic order," which has been proclaimed by Cecilia Goldmann former Maryknoll Sister who i~ a member of the Action group here.

Brilliant Colors Predtomi:nant In Main's Summer Wardrobe

Suit Asks State Aid for Oollege

By Marilyn Roderick That bright, flashy outfit that catches your eye on the beach this Summer may not belong to your best friend but it certainly could belong to your best friend's husband. Awning stripes, patriotic colors, and bright terry will be found at poolside and beachinto the background; this will be front and it looks as if the the year of the stripe and the male birds won't be the only (hold onto your middle class ones with female-attracting values) print. What would your plumage. No more will Italian knits and jumpsuits be restricted to the female of the species., Designers are . finding t hat knits are marvelously wear~ able in so many ways that it is sinful to restrict them to just women's clothes. Their excellent traveling properties make them ideal for men's suiting and this Summer season will see a big trend in this direction. Now whether the average man will feel that he will get as much wear out of a double knit suit as he would out of the material he usually wears remains to be seen. I just asked my husband ii he would buy one and this conservative (as far as clothes are concerned) replied that he would not buy one because It would be "too hot" and then he added (which was probably his real deep-seated reason) that they would be "too different." This opinion is presented before he has ever seen one so it certainly isn't based on factjust on the usual male prejudice against anything new iJ1 weari,ng apparel. ' Perhaps I'll be able to sneak him into it by starting out with a double knit sport jacket. Who knows? He may find that he likes this material after all. Women have really shown that they do. Q

StrIpes, Prints Knits aren't the only thing that have sailed over into the men's wear field; this ~s the season when you'll see more color in men's shirts than ever before (and we've seen some prettly colorful designs lately). But color won't be the only factor pushing the white shirt

husband say to a flower-striped broadcloth shirt? (Now wait a' minute; we can't print that in a family newspaper). However, all kidding aside, some of the prints that are go. ing to be seen are mighty handsome and not as outrageouslooking as they may sound at first; and remember your husband said he wouldn't wear wide ties and I bet he has a few of those in his wardrobe by now. The one factor that may deter the popularity of these eyecatching shirts is the price. One Oleg Cassini design in a jacquard-stripe cotton poplin will retail for $22.50 while even Hathaway shirts are running in the $16 bracket for -a striped broadcloth. Blazers Popular "Last of the big time spenders" Lou Wald has a two-button cuffed Swiss cotton for $40, and while I doubt if any stores of this area will carry this little ~umber I'm sure if you can afford it you can also afford a trip to New York to pick it up. Blazing colors will also be seen in that Summer essential, tl1e blazer. Again we see the introduction of double-knits, this. time in both blazer and slacks. The blazer has become such a popular item in a man's wardrobe that this year wili see the advent of the blazer suit. Some will be three pieced with one pair of slacks in a contrasting material and the other one made to match the jacket. And you thought there weren't any more . bargains left. The male of the species has cmerged from his cocoon and smart apparel is the order of the day.

Council Reissues Ecumenical Kit WASHINGTON (NC)-Encouraged by the reception accorded its first printing, the National Council of Catholic Women has reissued its ecumenical kit entitled "The More We Are Together, The Happier We will Be." The kit, which quickly sold out when it was issued last year, is a composite of articles and educational materials drawn from a variety of religious sources. Some of -the materials are aimed directly at children while other parts of the package can be used by parents and educators in guiding yo.ungsters to appreciate the values of numerous religious traditions. . The kit was much in demand by non-Catholics as well as Catholics, according to coimcil spokesman. The ecumenism also has an appeal for both conservative and liberal Catholics, noted Margaret Mealey, executive director. She said many affiliates have found non-Catholic materIals useful in meeting their religious oeeds in \tome life and parish programming.

Talent Bank National Council of Catholic Women Joins In Federation Project WASHINGTON (NC) - Three major national women's organizations are the first groups to join The National Federation of Business and Professional Women's Clubs, Inc. in a nationwide "Talent Bank" project to seek names of women who could qualify for high level policymaking positions with the federal government. Representing a broad spectrum of more than 15 million women, the three groups - The American Association of University Women, B'nai B'rith Women, and the National Council of Catholic Woinen-are circulating questionnaires among their members. Those interested in applying for top federal positions must complete the forms and return them to the organization which sent them. Each group will then forward applications to the federation's national executive offices where a central clearin~ house has been set up to process them.

_Suggests St. Francis As Ecology Patron WASHINGTON (NC) - Historian Lynn White proposed in an editorial in Sciencc Magazine here that St. Francis of Assisi be named the patron saint of ecologists. Commenting that the environmental crisis facing the world is religious as well as scientific and political, White said "the remedy must also be essentially religious, whether we call it that or not." St. Francis, White added, tried unsuccessfully to substitute "the idea of the equality of all creatures, including man, for the idea of man's limitless .rule of creation." ..

Qualified candidates' names will be channeled to the appropriate White House office as top openings occur on federal commissions, boards, agencies, branches or departments. The Talent Bank project resulted from action taken last July at the national federation's 50th anniversary <convention when delegates petitioned President Nixon to appoint qualified women to top level, policymaking positions. At a subsequent meeting with Charles W. Colson, special counsel to the President, the women were told one of the main reasons for the under-utilization of women power is -difficulty in finding names of qualified women.Colson indicated the Talent Bank project would be helpful. Since implementation of the Talent Bank, several hundred women have filed their applications and a few women have been proposed to fill spots on federal commissions. Applicants need not be members of any of the cooperating women's organizations in order to apply.

NEW ROCHELLE (NC)-Offi. cials of Iona College here have brought action against New York's state commissioner of education in an effort to compel the state to grant financial aid to the school. Iona's president, Brother Joseph G. McKenna, C.F.C., said that the officials of the collegc believed ,that "Iona is just as eligiblc as are all other colleges and univesrities in the statc" for a share of the funds. The money was held up by a ruling of education commissioner Ewald B. Nyquist that Iona's Catholic affiliation made it ineligible for state aid. Commissioner Nyquist stated that aid to the school would violate the B1ainc Amendment to the New York constitution which bans aid to religiously affiliated schools. Commenting on the decision, . loon's president said: "Iona College is Catholic in its dedication and its tradition, but in its intake policy it is complctely open with respect to all students who meet its academic standards whatever their religion. It is no part of Iona's program to impose doctrinal or sectarian views on anyone. Iona has no juridical connection with the Roman Catholic Church as such, and receives no financial support from the Church." Commissioner Nyquist is slated t.1l receivc an honorary doctoratc from Iona at Commencemcnt cxercises in carly Junc.

Mass, Rally Protest Easing Abortion Law WASHINGTON (NC)-Opponents of recent efforts to relax abortion laws across the nation announced plans here for a concelebrated funeral Mass of the Holy Innocents and an antiabortion rally Saturday. Organized 'by Catholics in the Washington area, the day of protest will be dedicated to taking "action for life in ways designed to prevent the killing of babies." The Mass will be offered in St. Stephen the Martyr Church here and the outdoor rally will follow at Washington Circle. Coordinator of the Action for Life movement is L.

Names L'ayman First Minister Of Eucharist PITTSBURGH (NC) - Joseph Pace, 65 and black, is the first layman in the Pittsburgh diocese authorized to assist in the distribution of Holy Communion. Pace, whose youthful aspirations to the priesthood were blunted by racial barriers of the times, w~ commissioned by Bishop Vincent M. Leonard of Pittsburgh as a minister of the Eucharist at Holy Rosary parish in the predominantly black Homewood section. Msgr. Charles Owen Rice, pas- . tor of the parish and internationally known "kbor priest," requested authorization for Pace's services. "He has been honored by the bishop with a great and sacred responsibility in recognition of his extraordinary qualifications and of the needs of our parish and neighborhood," Msgr. Rice said when Pace was installed in his new position. Garbed in surplice and cassock, Pace distributed Communion at the Mass. He will assist in its _distribution regularly at Sunday Masses. CYO Director He also will be a candidate for the lay diaconate in a program which Bishop Leonard is planning to begin this Fall.. Pace, a member of Holy Rosary parish for more than 25 years, sang in its choir, was its first lector-commentator, is a member of its church committee, and has been a key figure in its St. Vincent de Paul Society work. He is a member of the Diocesan Human Relations Commission; active as a retreat promoter for St. Paul Monastery here, and a director of the Catholic Youth Association. . Born in Brooklyn, N.Y., and educated in Catholic schools, he is a fourth degree member of Duquesne Council 264, Knights of Columbus. His wife, Ruth, is a registered nurse employed at Mercy' Hospital, conducted by the Sisters of Mercy, here.

Discuss Marriage With Orthodox NEW YORK (NC)-:An Orthodox-Roman Catholic theological dialoge group recommended here that the Catholic Church as a matter of standard practice permit Catholics to marry Orthodox Christians with an Orthodox priest officiating. The statement also recommended doing away with a canon law requirement that a Catholic priest must be present at a mixed marriage ceremony performed by an Orthodox priest in an Orthodox church. Such marriages are possible now only when special "difficulties" exist, according to a 1967 Vatican decree. The recommendation is contained in a joint statement on Orthodox-Catholic mixed marriages drafted by 20 members of the Official Orthodox-Roman Catholic Consultation Group at the close of their semi-annual meeting.

When seminarians return to St. Mary's in January, they will reflect upon their insights in pastorally oriented courses and WOrkshops. "It ish't simply a how-to-do-it program," Father Hogan said". "If this is their ministry, the seminarians have to understand the 'theological side of it." The new program of experience, supervision and reflection is based on recommendations in the Second Vatican Council's Decree on Priestly Formation and on interim guidelines set

ANNAPOLIS (NC)-GQv. Mar'vin Mandel has vetoed a bill. which virtually would have stripped Maryland of all restrictions on abortions. Acting after two pressurepacked months during which he conducted a public hearing arid received more than 50,000 letters on the issue, the governor said he rejected the measure purely on legal grounds. The measure would have made abortion a matter between a woman and h'er physician-no more difficult to obtain t~an any other medical operation. Since March 31 when the measure cleared the state legislature, Gov. Madel repeatedly indicated concern about legal shortcomings in the bill-such as lack of restriction on the number of weeks after conception an abortion might be performed and-failure to give the husband or father a voice in a woman's decision to seek an abortion. Opposition to the measure was led by Cardinal Lawrence Shehan of Baltimore, Cardinal_ Patrick 0' Boyle of Washington and Bishop Thomas J. Mardaga of Wilmington, Del., whose diocese include parts Of Maryland. The Catholic leaders were in~ tent upon taking the issue to the people of Maryland in the event the governor approved the bill. A week earlier Gov. Mandel said he had come to a decision regarding the legislature, but declined to indicate what action he would take.

Planning Statement On Ethical Guidance LONDON (NC)-The bishops of England?~nd Wales are planning to issue a statement on ethical guidance this Fall, Cardinal John Heenan of Westminster announced at a meeting of the archdiocesan pastoral council here. The cardinal said he is seeking the views of the National Laity Commission and other organizations before the statement is issued. His announcement followed a recommendation made at the council meeting that an organization be set up to provide information on matters of conscience for Catholics when these appear as public issues. The pastoral council rejected a recommendation to allow the Sunday Mass obligation to be fulfilled on Saturday.

Women Continue to Aid Poor \

,'-DETROIT (NC) - The 900 women members, of Friends of the Sick 'Poor, one of this area's 'oldest charitable organizations, has changed the name to Friends of the Aged, Poor and will go right on working for charity. The organization was formed 42 years ago when a 'smalI, band of missionary nuns came here from the DomInican Sisters of the Sick Poor in Mariandale, N.J Y. The nuns had to depend . had no say in the selection of house furnishings even though these 'were bought out of her 'huge marriage settlement. Mr. Rose has given us .a penetrating and fascinating account not only of the personality of Curzon but also, of the gilded circle of which, in the late Victorian era, he was a member. They were, highly privileged people, generally of great means, socially illustrious, waited on by numerous, respectful, ill-paid servants, moving from country house to country house on a round of. parties.

Ardent Imperialists If they did not work as common folk did, they were not idle. They were intellectually cultivated and occupied. They were students, 'and they wrote." They had, a sense of public service, and most of the men were somehow in politics They may not all have believed, as Curzon did, in Brit-, ain's destiny to dominate the whole world, ,but they were ardent imperialists, delighted that, in Lord, Salisbury's tenure as prime minister alone, for example, 6,000,000 square miles and 100,000,000 subjects were added to the realm of Queen Victoria. The empire is now, not a cen'try later, reduced to very little, which would have horrified Curzo~. In him, as so well portrayed by Mr. Rose, we can see what its leaders were like when it was at its peak. Formidable people, certainly, but with virtues and graces lacking in the barbarous masters of millions today.

Interfaith Clergymen Association Seeks Professiona.1 Development

THE ANCHOR-Diocese of ~all River-Thurs., June 4, 1970

DETROIT, (NC) - More than 400 clergymen from 42 states have joined an interfaith association designed to boost the morale of the clergy through personal and professional development. The Academy of Parish Clergy held its first annual convention recently at Mam:esa Retreat House in nearby Bloomfield Hills. Participants discussed ways to improve ministerial techniques and the future thrust of the organization. "We're going to be like brokers," said Father Gerald O'Bee, a member of the academy's board of directors and Catholic campus minister at Oakland University in Rochester, Mich. He said the association will ,probably not set up specific programs. The aim instead will be "to get men together, who, because of their association with each other, want to improve themselves." The wayan individual clergyman does this is tip to him. . Five Texas ministers got together, for example, and decided that they could do a better job for their respective congregations by learning Spanish. They submitted their idea to academy directors for approval - part of the procedure for its membersand began attending classes. UtUlze SkUls Father O'Bee's particular project is evaluating his counseling activities. He plans to clock the hours spent advising college students, categorize the kinds of problems discussed, and compare these problems with those handled by psychologist-counsellors on campus. Then he wilL submit. his findings to campus psychologists and ask for their recommendations. Reports such as Father O'Bee's are kept on file for other academymembers to refer to if they are working on Similar projects.' This is part of the academy's main thrust-to utilize skills of men in the working ministry as much as possible - something Father O'Bee calls "peer group encouragement." The academy wants to avoid the "ivory tower" approach of reading artiCles in professional journals by supposed "experts" in the field, he said. Members must spend' a total of 150 hours working on projects related to their ministry every three years. Half of the time should be spent in p'arish projects and the rest elsewhere-taking related college courses, for instance. Spiritual Formation Formerly, clergymen w ere placed "on a pedestal," Father O'Bee said. "The new age doesn't respect people because they have a title, but because of compe-

YOUNGSTOWN (NC)-A Lutheran student has been eRected president of Newman Student Organization at Youngstown State University here in Ohio. He is believed to be the first Protestant to hold such an office in the predominantly Catholic group, according to Father Anthony Esposito, local Newman director. The national Newman organization, founded about 75 years ago as an all-Catholic group on secular college, campuses, consists of approximately 1,200 chapters. In the past four years, several chapters have been admitting Protestants and Jews. Of 130 members in the Youngs-

Inventor Develops 'Fertility Detector' SAN JUAN (NC) - Engineer Arturo J. Rodriguez has been granted a patent on a new device he claims will make the rhythm method of birth control completely effective. According to Rodriguez, his apparatus will outline a woman's fertility cycle accurately enough to determine the exact limits of a woman's fertile period. Rodriguez, the father of six children, is presently, seeking a loan to put through his Rrythmograph into commercial production. If the device is produced for sale, it will cost approximately three dollars, the inventor claims.

tence." But in order to assure that academy members do more than analyze and improve professional techniques, they must also "be concerned about spiritual formation," he said. Father Gerald Martin, associate director of the Institute for Continuing Education in the Detroit archdiocese, urged at the convention that fellow priests take advantage of the academy. Less than 50 of the 400 academy members are Catholic priests. "The Academy helps to achieve professionalism in the good sense, not the bad," Father Martin said, considering the parish ministry "a "profession as well as avocation." It attempts to be "a national association that will help clergymen be the' effective servants of God's people that they want to be." FIRST: Rev. Joseph D.

Segregated School Busing Increases ATLANTA (NC) - A study published in' the current issue of South Today, monthly digest of the Southern Regional Council, indicates that new segregated private schools in the South are busing more students farther than the region's public schools. The survey of 1.0 '''segregation academies" chosen to be representative on the basis of size and location indicates that an average of 62 per cent of their students are transported daily by bus for an average of 17.7 miles each way. For the eight states represented by these academies, the conipar!1ble figures for public schools are 49.5 per cent and 10.1 miles each way. Further, the study suggested; some Southern states have been considering ways in which they might in effect subsidize private school busing. Bills to provide tax relief for private school transportation failed' this year in the Georgia and North Carolina legislatures.

Milwaukee Priests Support Pope Paul

Blesses Abbot BELMONT (NC)-Abbot Edmund F. McCaffery, O.S.B., 67, was ,blessed solemnly as the fourth abbot-ordinary of Belmont Abbey Nullius in a cere· mony in the abbey cathedral here in North Carolina. Archbishop Luigi Raimondo, apostolic delegate in the United States, officiated at the blessing, with Abbot Walter A. Coggin, O.S.B., and Abbot Baldwin Dworschak, O.S.B., of St. John'!l abbey, Collegeville, Minn., as principal assistants.


WASHINGTON (NC)-"Where are the Catholics?" asked one of about 30 Catholic participants in a denominational meeting during an interreligious convocation for peace here. The question, asked by Father James Miller, Saginaw, Mich., expressed disappointment over a small showing by Catholics at the two-day' Emergency Religious Convocation. More than 1,000 clerics from around the nation had come to the meeting and to lobby for peace on Capitol Hill. Father John B. Sherrin, C.S.P., editor of Catholic World magazine, issued a statement lambasting the Catholics' absence at the event. , , However, the' statement was heard by only six others who gathered for a second and final denominational meeting May 27 in the basement of the Lutheran Church of the Reformation. Members in the small group agreed that the statement summed up their thoughts. It read: "We are a small group of Roman Catholics who have come to this religious convocation from all sections of the country. In view of the massive national demand for an end to this Vietnam war, we a're painfully disappointed at the lack of Catholic participation."

Few Catholics At Peace Event








Hundreds o.f readers of this column have built chapels and churches in India, Ethiopia, Leba' non, throughout the Near and Middle East in countries where our Holy Father has said one is desperately needed. Why have so many people, at great personal sacrifice, provided the funds for the construction of mission churches? · .. The answer is easy: they welcome the opportunity to do something needed where it's needed. Sometimes, besides, they build the church in memory of their loved ones, name it .for their .favorite saint. . .. Where is a new church needed? In hundreds of towns and vil· lages in our 18'country mission world. In Pal,Iuruthy, South India .for instance. . . . The present church, constructed centuries ago, cannot accommodate the 2,425 parishioners. "The children fill the church; everyone else must remain outdoors to worship in all kinds of weather", states their priest, Father George Kottackal. "I am a.fraid .for the children's safe· ty", he adds. You can build this church all by yoursel.f for as little as $3,350. You'll be doing something needed, where it's needed, .for Christ -and the people who cannot do for themselves! · .. Do something at least, as much as you can ($100, $75, $50, $20, $15, $10, $5, $3, $i) to help build this church! Have you been look· ing for something meaningful to do?

Minister' Plans Study in Rome

RUTLAND '(NC)'- A Protestant minister is bound from here for a Catholic university 'in Rome. seeking some ans~ers to a number of problems In the multifaceted field of ecu~enism. The Rev. Dav:id M, Powers. a United Church of Christ minister here, said he hopes to find answers to these questions: Is the mission field going to be one of significant areas for real. grassroots ecumenism to take hold? How will bure..ucracies of the various missionary churches react? Will leadership guide and encour-, age the teaching of on Christian gospel. or will it. take another tack? In his quest for answers. the Rev, Mr, Powers and his wife, Pam will enplane from Boston , 'Jun~ 28 for Rome. where he will enroll as a student at the Pontifical Urban University. known as ' "the missionary institute" of the Catholic Church. He said he plans to spend a year or more , _studying in Rome. The associate pastor of Grace church here said he hopes he can learn "how the Roman Church faces the problems that actually confront every church dis- which does mission work," He the' added: "I really want to get to know the people there-learn how they feel about the possibility of a unified Christian mission,"

Loti'n-American Citizens Objects of Injusti~e By Msgr. George G. Higgill1ls Director, Division of Urban Life" U.S.C.C.

On April 29 the United States 'Commission on 'Civil Rights released a very important 135-page report entitled: "Mexicap Americans and the Administration of Justice in the Southwest." It paints what the Commission itself has described as a "bleak picture" of the relationship State of California in' the County Santa Clara. • , between Mexican-Americans of The case before this crudely in the five Southwestern intemperate judge involved a States (Arizona, California, Colorado, New Mexico and Texas) and the agencies which adminis~' ter justice in those states. In point of fact, bleak is hardly the word for it. It would be more accurate to say that the commission's carefully documented findings add up to a shameful indictment of the American system of law enforcement, which is supposed to be based on the principle of equal justice under law. The commission has found 'that in the case of MexicanAmericans this principle is being violated on a very widespread scale in the Southwest. It reports th,at American citizens of Mexican descent are "subject to unduly harsh treatment by law enforcement officers, that they are often arrested on insufficient grounds, receive physical and verbal abuse, and penalties which are disproportionately severe." , 'DisgrlJcefui Finding' It also reports that they are ,deprived of proper use of bail and of adequate representation by counsel and that they are substantially unrepresented on grand and petit juries and excluded from full participation in law enforcement agencies, especially in supervisory positions. In the light of these disgrace,ful findings it is little wonder that the attitude of MexicanAmericans toward the institutions responsible for the administration of justice-the police, the courts, and related agencies "distrustful, fearful, and hostile." We can thank our lucky stars that they haven't turned against the system en masse and tried to overthrow it. The commission's report, which is required reading for all of us who belong to the white major: ity in this country and especially for the opiniol).-makers in OUF ranks, is too extensive to be summarized in detail in this column. In lieu of a detailed sum: mary, then, let me comment very briefly on two of its principal findings: 'Horrible Example' 1) that Mexican-Americans are are often treated with a disgraceful'lack of courtesy on the part of law enforcement and judicial officers and are frequently subject to verbal abuse; and ' 2) that in several instances law enforcement officers have interefered with Mexican-Americans in the Soutwest. Under the first of these two headings, I should like to cite one particularly horrible example of the most vile kind of verbal abuse directed at a IS-year old Mexican 'boy-in the presence of ,the boy's mother-by a Judge of the Superior Court of the

serious : morals charge against the young Mexican-American boy just referred to. ']Lower Than Animal" I have before me a duly certified copy of the judge's state-' ment to the defendant from the bench. It is so .utterly lacking in judicial restraint and so, contemptuous of Mexican-Americans as to be almost beyond belief. One can only imagine' how frightening it must have sounded to the defendant and to his poor mother as they sat in the courtroom and listened to His Honor excoriate their racial group with all of the Pharasaical arrogance of a man who apparently has been able to convince himself that' he' belongs to h superior breed of human beings. The' judge's statement reads in part as follows: "You arejust an animal. You are lower than an animal., Even animals don't do that'" '" '" I don't ,know why your parents haven't been able to teach ·you anything or train you. Mexican people, after 13 years of age, it's perfectly all right to go out and act like an animal'" '" * We ought to s~nd you out of the country - send you back to Mexico'" '" *You ought to commit suicide. 'Mad Dogs of Society' "That's what I think of people of this kind. You are lower than animals and haven't the right to live in organized society. Just miserable, lousy, rotten pe6ple. There is nothing we can do with you. You e~pcct the County to take care of you. Maybe Hitler was right. The animals in 'our society probably ought to I be destroyed because they have no right to live among human beings * <:< * What are we going to do with the mad dogs of our society? Either we have to kill them or send them to an institution' or place them out of the hands of good people because that's the , theory - one of the theorieS of punishment is if they get to the ~osition that they want to :act like mad dogs, then, we have to separate them from society. Well, I will go along with the recommendation." I ", Equal Justice I wouldn't even 'attempt: to answer the judge's unbelievably insensitive question, "What are we going to do with the mad dogs of our society?," for the simple reason that, except for the canine species, there aren't any mad dogs in our society' or in any other society on the face of the earth. There are only human beings made in the image and likeness of God-human beings who in this society at least, are supp~sed to be able to look to our courts for equal justice under the law. Let's hope that the fact that they are not being guaranteed this right in some of our courts -even in a jurisdiction as so,phisticated as Santa Clara County - is the exception that proves the rule. On the other hand, if someone were to ask the question. "W~at

NC Photo. are we to do with judges who spew forth the kind of bigotry quoted above?," I would answer very simply: They should be impeached and permanently barred from the practice of law. The second of the two points referred to above has to do with intereference by law' enforcement officers with MexicanAmerican organizational efforts turned at improving the social and economic conditions of Mexican Americans. \ Attempt to Break Strike One of the examples of such interference cited in the report of the Civil' Rights Commission is particularly reprehensible. I refer' to the Commission's charge-as reported by its 'own Texas State Advisory Committee-tl;1at "The~exas Rangers and local law enforcementofficers in 1966 and 1967"'''' '" ha, rassed members of the UFWOC (United Farm Workers Organizing Commitee) seeking to organize Mexican-American farm workers in Starr County. Denials of strikers' legal rights, the (State Advisory) Committee found, included physical and verbal abuse by Texas Rangers and local officials, and the holding 'of union organizers many hours before releasing them on bond.. "The Committee found that the Texas' Rangers had encouraged farm workers to cross picket lines and stated that the harrassment and intimidation by Rangers of UFWOC members organizers, and' sympathizer~ 'gave 'the appearance of (the Rangers) being in sympathy with the growers and· packers rather than the' i!11pa~,ality usually expected of Jaw enforcement officers." In summary, it seems very clear from the record that the Rangers joined with local law enforcement officers in Starr County in attempting to break the farm workers' strike and to deny the strikers and strike sympathizers their legal rights. 'Brutally Victimized' The Civil Rights 'Commission is to be congratulated on having

DODGE CITY (NC)-Interior Secretary Walter J. Hickel, a critic of the administration's reaction toward student dissent on U. S. involvement in Indochina, defended President Nix, on's decision to send troops into Cambodia during a commencement talk here in Kansas. Speaking at graduation exercises of St. Mary of the Plains College, Hickel praised the idealism of today's youth. "Ninety five per cent of them are grand and glorious, with a desire for good and perhaps, a frustration in trying to do their part to make a better world," he said. "I belive their ideas are worth listening to." Hickel, who rece'ived an honorary doctor of laws degree at the ceremonies, said "there are ,many problems demanding solutions, not the least of which is , the Southeast Asian war." Affirming his support for President Nixon's' recent military decisions on Cambodia, Hickel said he looked forward, to the day when man could move away from concern over his physical security and move on to "living the life," and not having to expend energy on the destruction of life.

Catholic Conference Official Says 27 States Aid Nonpublic Pupils BRUNSWICK (NC)-Twentyseven states provide some form of aid to students attending nonpublic schools, A. U. S. Catholic Conference official told a group of teachers at a college alumni meeting. Dr. Edward R. D'Alessio, coordina tor for governmental programs of the Conference Elemeritary and Secondary Education division, gave an outline on "New Opportunities for NonpubIic Education" at an armual meeting of Bowdoin College teaching alumni here. . In addition to federal nonpub· Iic school aid under legislation' such as the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, and the Nixon Administration's pledge of further support in a recent education message, D'AI· essio outlined state approaches to aiding nonpublic schools. . Of the 27 states that provide some aid, D'Alessio said, 23 states provide pupil transportation; nine provide textbooks; eight, health services; four, general auxiliary services, and fOUf (Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Rhode Island) purchase services from nonpublic schools and pay salary supplement to teachers in these schools. 'Ripple Effect' The state of Hawaii, he said, has a "small tax credit" program where some of the cost involved in sending children to nonpublic schools can be deducted from state income tax.

Meaning of Life Continued from Page One should be deeply grateful the young people have discovered religious values that interest them. You know, I really believe that many of them have not other access to Christianity than in this very round-about way. "Somehow it has happened that we have blocked their approach to Christianity, and we might as well forget about them, unless through the grace of God they find religion somewhere else. "Religion is religion, and it ultimately leads to God, and it ultimately leads to the triune God, and it ultimately leads to Christ, whether they know or not, whether they care to face it or not, and whether they finally become Christians or not." Brother David said he is convinced that there has never been a time when truly religious people were as open to the Christian message as today. In addition to his work with the Center for Spritual Studies, Brother David is also very much jnvolved in what he calls the "house of· prayer movement," Necessity "Most of the members of our active orders," he explained, "find that their apostolic services -be it social work or teaching or nursing or whatever - becomes so absorbing if they really want to do it well that they end up short-selling the contemplative dimension of their lives. Although they were founded for what has been called the mixed Iife-a life that combines contemplation and action-the situation in the 'world today makes this almost impossible. "Facing this situation, they have realized the necesssity of somehow providing a setting in which to counterbalance this absorption in service, where they can go to steep themselves equally profoundly in prayer, mediation and the cont.emplative life. This, then, would be a house of prayer."

D'Alessio also referred to the "mandated services bill" passed recently in New York state which reimburses nonpublic schools for statistical and testing services which all New York schools are required to perform. "Study commissions are at work in Maryland, Massachusetts, West Virginia, South Dakota, Kansas, New Hampshire and New York," he said. "The essence of my collVersa.. tion. with you this evening." D'Alessio told some 50 teachers, school board members, alumni, faculty and Bowdoin students, "is that it's a new ballgame so to speak, concerning public-nonpublie school cooperation." He told those assembled: "Being 'for' nonpublic schools does not necessarily imply being 'against' public schools." He described American education as "a totality, a composite." "The public and nonpublic sectors are interdependent:' D'Alessio said. "There is a 'rippIe effect' between them-what happens in one sector has impact upon thee other." Finding Sources. Another group of Catholic educators stressed cooperation with the public school system. recently. Some 150 Catholic school superintendents' at the National Catholic. Educational Association convention this month adopted a special statement on the subject. They asserted that tax support for students in nonoublic schools should not "dimin'ish or divert funds already committed to and needed by the public sector." The superintendents noted that "nonpublic and public sectors should not be viewed as competing for scarce educational dollars but as cooperating to attract increased community support for education and to make the most efficient use of available funds." "On the practical level," they explained, "this means that legislation extending any degree of public support to educational services offered in nonpublic schools must include provisions for ade. quate funding sources" to prevent interference with the needs of public schools.

Seton Hall Ponders University Senate SOUTH ORANGE (NC) - Establishment of a university senate which would give students, alumni and faculty a voice in campus affairs, is under consideration at Seton Hall University here. The proposal is now before a university committee on decision making, and stems in part from requests made a year ago by student and faculty representatives. As proposed, there would be a 74-member senate composed of 16 members of ,the administration, 32 teachers, 24 students and two alumni. The senate would be second in authority only to the board of trustees. At present, a university council has final authOrity under the board, with the council heavily weighted in favor of the administration.

Urges Wi'thdrawal GREENWICH (NC) - Officials of the Episcopal church's executive council here in Connecticut called for "total withdrawal of all Amercian forces from Southeast Asia now and an end to the war." The call included a reminder from presiding Bishop John E. Hines that the executive council is speaking for itself and not for the whole church.

DETROIT (NC) - Veterans seeking a college education will benefit from a special admissions program established by the Univ~rsity of ~roit. Known as '''Project Veteran," the program is designed to assist returning servicemen who have successfully completed the equivalent of a high school education, the only requireme~t for admission. Father James V. McGlynn, S.J. vice-president for academic affairs, said if a need is indiCated, veterans can take special skills courses during their first year to enable them to master college studies. In addition, he said veterans attending the university will be offered special counseling services. Law school admission tests have been waived for servicemen now stationed overseas who plan to enroll here in August. Servicemen planning to study at the university, but who are now in military hospitals, will also be offered counseling services, especially in the skills courses, during their recuperation. Father McGlynn said, "Project Veteran is more than just a warm invitation. We believe that any returning veteran who really wants to get a college education should have a realistic chance to do so." The university, he said, hopes to admit as many veterans into the program as its resources permit.

Baker is the first boy ever to qualify for the Class Championship Meet from Norton. His win Saturday has to rate as most outstanding performance by a Norton trackman. Pete Trow established himself as an all-star basketball performer his sophomore year at Old Rochester Regional in Mattapoisett and lived up to expectations right through his senior year. But, the versatile athlete was not satisfied with being known as a one sport athlete. He climaxed his track career Saturday by winning the 440 yard dash in record time. That time of SO.3 may not be good enough to win this weekend, but Trow is the type of athlete who thrives on competition and he may prove how good he really is this Saturday.
