Nixon Taps Lodge As Vatican Envoy WASHINGTON (NC) - Henry Cabot Lodge intends to make his first exten~ed visit to Rome in about two weeks, as President Nixon's newly named personal envoy to the Vatican, and will set up office in a hotel there. The 67-year-old former U. S. Ambassador to Saigon discussed his plans with NC News when reached by telephone at his Beverly, Mass., home a few minutes before the White House announced his appointment. He was given no formal diplomatic status, although he is ranked in the U.S. State Department as a roving ambassador. "I'm deeply grateful for the honor," said Lodge, "I'm looking forward to visiting the Vatican. I pray that this will open up great opportunities for exchanging points of view that will advance the cause of peace." Asked how soon he expected to make his initial visit to the V&tican in - his new capacity, Lodge said he expected to go "toward the end of the month." He said he would remain in Rome "a few weeks" and would live in a hotel, maintaining an office there, rather than provide himself with a leased apartment. Occasional visitors to Pope

Paul VI from the Nixon administration over the past year, such as Transportation Secretary John Volpe and, twice, presidential assistant Peter M, Flanigan, have stayed no more than one or two ·days. Lodge was last received in papal audience on Jan. 16, 1967 after he had ended two tours as ambassador in Vietnam for President Johnson and before heading the Paris negotiating team for President Nixon throughout 1969. Nixon's decision to name Lodge marks the first time the United States has set up a personal emissary arrangement with the vatican since President Franklin D. Roosevelt sent Myron C. Taylor over in February 1940 as his liaison man with Pope Pius XII, less than two years before American entry into World War II. The time Taylor actually spent in Rome covered only a few months, although he remained on the books until 1950 as special envoy. Concern over the search for peace was evident in the Washington announcement of Lodge's appointment and in the words of Turn to Page Fourteen

Federal Voucher Aid To Begin in 1971 CAMBRIDGE (NC)-A voucher system for education which might prove a financial help to both public and non public schools has been proposed by a group of researchers here. Christopher' Jencks, author and associate professor of education at Harvard University, directed the study under an Office of Economic Opportunity grant. Jencks said the proposal-to be tried out in one or two areas in Fall 1971 - would probably help alleviate money troubles in nonpubli~ schools. One section

Diocesan CCD Office Completes Survey of Teac:hing Materials The Diocesan CCD Office has recently completed a series of evaluations covering a variety of materials used for instruction in CCD schools of Religion and in Adult Education programs. The evaluations, which have been distributed in chart form to each parish, represent a compilation of surveys taken among teachers using the various mao terials in actual classroom situations. In those cases where newly published books are evaulated, the Diocesan CCD Board and Staff conducted appraisals which considered a number of points dealing with format and content. Sister Martha Wordeman, Diocesan Catechetical Consultant, was coordinator of the project, which took several months. It covers 36 different school and adult education offerings, many of them new or revised since a similar project was completed in June, 1969. Commenting on the task, Sister Martha said that the evaluations were particularly timely because their publication now would assist in plannipg for CCD programs scheduled for the Fall. In addition, she indicated that the more popular texts used in CCD programs have been the subject of some controversy_ in recent months. "There has been a considerable amount of misinformation circulated recently about CCD texts", said the Sister. "While certainly not the last word, the Diocesan evaluations are an objective, professional judgment based on doctrinal approach, content, format and actual use." "The materials presently available to teachers are the best we have ever had", stated Sister Martha. "The variety insures that the parish CCD unit can choose materials which will be appropriate tools for a sound Religious Education program." Copies of the text evaluations have been forwarded to the United States C!ltholic Conference in Washington, where the Division of Research and Development is conducting a religion textbook evaluation project. Ad· ditional copies are available on request from the Diocesan CCD Center in Fall River. In preparation at the CCD

Center are evaluations of materials designed to' be used with exceptional children and books dealing with the. preparation of children for the reception of the sacraments.The are scheduled for Summer publication.

The New Bedford Catholic Guild for the Blind will hold its next meeting on Tuesday evening at the Lapointe home. A cookout will be held at 6 and the meetin~ will follow.

And each year tourists by the thousands flock here to see if the birds keep their traditional date on St. Joseph's Day (Mardi 19», returning from wintering in warmer climes to nest in the cliffs by the sea. Fabled in song ("When the Swallows Come Back to Capistrano") and for decades in hun· dreds of yearly news stories, the swallows, too, keep attracting tourists, through the Summer' months-which isn't bad for the town's economy. But the swallows have extend· ed their nesting places from the cliffs to buildings in the town. Businessmen, homeowners lately have been degrading the town's No. 1 tourist attraction as pests who make "a terrfule mess." The disgruntled have been knocking down nests, employing noise makers, to scare off the birds.

See Needs Money To Meet Payrolls PHILADELPHIA (NC)-Philadelphia archdiocesan officials may have to borrow more money to meet two upcoming payroIls in 32 Cathqlic high schools. The archdiocese met a $369,000 payroIl deadline Friday with. out a loan, but was forced re'cently to borrow $375,000 to meet its previous payroll. That, was the first time it had borrowed to finance its schools. Officials said the financial picture "remains blurry" ·because it is unknown how many parishes can afford to pay assessments of $150 for each high school stu-. dent. It is also unknown how quickly parents will respond with tuition or student fees. With' two June payroIls amounting to $1.2 million, the archdiocese may be forced to borrow again.

Catholic Woman, Mother of Five, 'Military Wife of the Year' WASHINGTON (NC) - Mrs. Albert Sanford, president, Military Council of Catholic Women, an affiliate of the National Council of Catholic Women, was chosen "Military Wife of the Year" from five finalists;. all Catholics, competing for the honor. Receiving a dozen roses and a kiss from master of ceremonies Art Linkletter, Mrs. Sanford commented: . "If I could, I'd blush." She is the first black to receive the honor in the fouryear-old contest. The finalists, representing each branch of the armed services, have a total of 32 children. Four are officers' wives. Gussie Smith Sanford, wife of Lt. Col. Albert G. Sanford who joined the Army as an enlisted man, is a mother of five and is functioning as an "envoy without portfolio" at her husband's post in Frankfurt, Germany. Among other activities, she is a member of a German-American society, an honorary member of a German Catholic women's or-

ganization and a powerhouse in the Girl Scouts. Volunteer Service Mrs. Sanford stood next to last in the count of finalists' children. Mrs. Ralph Wewmouth of the Navy and Mrs. Malcolm Luft of the Air Force tied for first with eight each; Mrs. Stuart Bechwith (Coast Guard) has seven, and Mrs. Richard Greer of the Marines (and a former Marine herself) has four. The large number of offspring evoked more than one comment by the finalists' celebrity introducers. Mrs. Greer, with the fewest, said: "I feel like a piker." Also among them, the five finalists share an astronomical number of volunteer hours devoted to everything from teaching retarded children to civil rights activities. Mrs. Weymouth, wife of a rear admiral, holds open house in Norfolk for the wives of en- . listed men and receives their troubled calls at any hour. Mrs. Greer, wife of a Marine gunnery sergeant stationed at Camp Le Jeune, N. C., was able to enlist the aid of the military community in a VISTA project in nearby Jacksonville. e Will Tour U.

NEW ORLEANS (NC) - The pastor of an Italian ethnic par· ish in the city's French Quarter has refused to join fellow residents of the colorful neighbor. hood in a sweeping condemnation of hippies flooding the area. Father Vincent Liberto, O.M.!., has had both sides of the coin: He was forced to change two weeknight services to morning hours because the parishioners of St. Mary's Church were too frightened by the surge of un· kempt youth to venture out after dark. He was voluntarily helped by a hippy who scaled a waII and opened the gate from inside when the priest accidentalIy locked himself out of his residence. "I'm afraid I don't know of a solution outside of praying for them," said Father Liberto. EventualIy they'II go~away, he added, and that will end the hippy pr~blem.

Long Overdue' Religious Leaders Stress Necessity Of Welfare Reform WASHINGTON (NC) - Officials of three major religious bodies-the National Council of Churches, the Synagogue Council of America and the U. S. Catholic Conference have proclaimed June I to 7 as Welfare Reform Wee~. Stating that "reform of the welfare system in America is long overdue," the general secretaries of the groups said the special week was to educate the public as to the need of such reform and to show support for reforms like those proposed by President Nixon in a speech last ·August. . Legislation incorporating his major suggestions has been passed by the House of Representatives and is now being considered by the U. S. Senate. The general secretaries, Dr. R.H. Edwin Espy, Rabbi Harry Siegman and Bishop Joseph L. Bernardin, called on religious leaders throughout the nation "to join us in expressing their concerns for welfare reform," The general secretaries said they' expected "the concerns of religious people for the needy would .reach a high point during the religious services of June 5-7, and that this concern will be expressed in discussion and consultation with the poor and in prompt and appropriate action in behalf of welfare reform," Noting that the Aid for Families with Dependent Children program "disrupts families, often fails to provide minimal subsistence, demeans the recipient and reaches less than half of those in need," the religious leaders expressed their deep concern with the suffering of the nation's poor. They praised the President and Congress for their efforts to give assistance to those unable to provide adequately for themselves and their families. "The pending legislation, or some similar family assistance program, which provides income maintenance and rewards for' suitable work, sets important new dire,ctions and deserves sup-

port, even. though the benefit schedule shouid be substantially increased. The coverage should be broadened to include families without children and single persons in need," they said. In their calI for Welfare Reform Week, the general secretaries asked local priests, ministers and rabbis to hold meetings and education-information pro.grams on the critical national issues of hunger and pov.erty and reform of the present welfare system in the United States. The leaders called for an interfaith effort across the country and local congregations, dio.ceses, orders and institutions to take part on their own initiative, on a cooperative basis, in behalf of the nation's poor. ~

Parents would present their vouchers to the respective schools which would turn them in to local government agencies for reimbursement. No school participating in the program could charge tuition beyond the ,value of the voucher. This means some expensive private schools would .probably not be included, but Jencks told NC News the vouchers "would be substantially more than the tuition that most parochial schools would charge," since public school per pupil costs run about $700 for middle income families on a nationwide average.

Congratulations are in order for graduates of all levels of academic achievement. Those who have come to the terminal of their education now enter the arena of putting ideas into practice ~nd working changes for the better in the nation. Those who have completed one phase of the educa~ tional process and are entering another can be cautioned to take not only a short range view of what they wiSh. to accomplish but to keep in mind the long-range goals: of life. What they do in the next few years will be an investment for a long life and will have,-impact on themselves and the community in which they involve themselves for generations to come.

Chaos Confounded

The- suggestion haS been made-not completely facetiously, either-that the whole country needs to g~ ~n vacation. 'True, most people are weary and frighten~d with the long litany of woes and troubles and conflicts at home and abroad. But no one can resign too easily from the human race; nor should one be too willing to slough off' .. responsibilities. Perhaps there could be an answer in a lowering of voices and a greater willingness to listen as well 'as to. talk. Perhaps the answer to much of the dissension and conflict lies in a rather old-fashioned concept - a greater measure of courtesy and politeness, a greater measure of charity. " , When bitterness enters the picture then there is pol- . arization and the pitting of pers,on against person, grOl-tP against group. But where there is kindness and, courtesy, then there is at least a platform of civility on which people of varying viewpoints can meet and talk with sOllle degree .of reasonableness. The alternative to this is cha~s further confounded. .'

His chaplains were Rev. David A. O'Brien and Rev. Lucien Jusseaume. Monsignor Prevost died Friday, June 5 in St. Anne's Hospital, Fall' River following a shoro illness. Born on Sept. 29, 1886 in St. Charles, P.Q.:. Canada, the sori of the late Louis and Stephanie Marquis Prevost, "Msgr. Prevost received his philosophical training at Laval University, Quebec and his theological training at St. John's 'Seminary, Brighton. Ordained on June 10, 1911 in St. Mary's Cathedral, Fall River . by the late Most Rev. Daniel F. Feehan, he was first assigned as an assistant at Notre Dame Parish, Fall River. Other parishes served by Msgr.

Prevost as an assistant were: Sacred Heart, No. Attleboro; St. Jacques, Taunton; Sacred Heart, New Bedford. In 1927, he was assigned as pastor to St. Dominic's, Swansea and the following year was assigned to establish a new parish in the Swansea area named St. Louis de France. While there, he built a church and a combination school and convent. As the parish grew, it became evident that a larger edifice for worship was necessary and so a new church building was constructed under the supervision of Monsignor Prevost' and the old church was converted into a hall.' After 26 years in the Swansea parish, he was named pastor of St.. Joseph's Parish, New Bedford where he remained until he became pastor emeritus on Aug.

Listening to the various opinions of coll,ege graduates on what they have achieved or should have achieved through their college courses makes one wonder if perhaps there should be several' types of colleges througho* the land.

Per pupil costs for low income children are usually higher since they sometimes need special tutoriDg programs and other extra help. For ''this reason and to encourage schools to accept children who may be more difficult to educate - vouchers for low income children will be substantially higher, 'totaling around $1,000 Jencks said. He noted these figures may be misleading, however, since per pupil c~sts "vary fantastically from state to state." A safeguard incorporated into the proposal would prevent using vouchers for possible segregation purposes. If a given school wanted to pick and choose which applicants to ap'prove instead of accepting them all, it would have to fill half its places by lottery. Experiment Jencks and his colleagues are negotiating with interested school officials across the country to determine the best locations for starting the five to eight year, OEO-funded experiment. Establishing the program later on a voluntary basis at the national level would require "a ~vast amount more money and congressional legislation," he said. The Harvard educator said his group had "talked to Catholic school superintendents in anum· ber of communities we are interested in, and that their resj>onse has been "generally quite enthusiastic." He said there had been one or two instances where these officials had been worried about certain restrictions in the voucher system-notably thatdifficult-to-educate children must not be turned away. But Jencks said the officials were generally willing to accept· these children if given sufficient funds to' educate them. _ Criteria Jencks said the criteria for choosing areas to try out the voucher system are numerous. The community itself-and the local school board-must want the vouchers and be willing to cooperate. The program can only be conducted in "a state which both constitutionally and politically is willing to be helpful in g~tt1ng things set up." The area under consideration must .also have enough schools to offer parents educational alternatives. Each school participating would be required to report fUlly on its programs and curricula to help parents make an informed choice. ' Researchers would also like "to find a community which is both economically and racially mixed," Jencks said. "We want to find out what it does for both low and middle income children and also for blacks and whites,"

JERSEY CITY (NC)-Dissatisfied with the fiim industry's rating system, Jersey City has enacted an ordinance that provides a backstop. Modeled on an ordinance suggested by the Christian Communications' Apostolate of the Newark archdiocese, the ordinance establishes a motion picture review board and is aimed at keeping children under 18 from attending unsuitable films. It was approved by a 7 to 0 vote. Apostolate officials testified before the City Council prior to the vote. Under the law, exhibitors will be required to file a proposed classification for each film they intend to show. They must also file a summary of the plot and other information the board might consider necessary. If the board approves the classification, it will adopt that elas-' sification as its own. Otherwise it may request a showing to five of its members who would determine the classification. Penalties are provided for exhibitors who show films of an X-rated nature (no one under 18 admitted) without advertising the classification and for knowingly selling tickets to such films to those under 18. Those misrepresenting their age to gain admittance would also be subject to penalties.

Upholds State's Right To limit Welfare WASHINGTON (NC)-A 5-3 vote of the U. S. Supreme Court upheld California's right to set statutory limits on the amount of welfare grants a single family could receive. . The high court ruling overturned the August, 1969, decision of 'a three-judge federal panel that had ruled against the state's authority to set welfare limits. At the same time, the court ruled that California could not reduce welfare payments, to de-. pendent children on the presumption that men living in the household contributed to the' children's support. , This decision too overruled a ,three-judge panel's earlier findings. "In the absence of proof of actual contribution," Justice William O. Douglas said in the court's opinion, "California ~ay - not consider the child's 'resources' to include 'the income of a nonadopting stepfather who is not legally obligated to support the child."

ing at Monterey was an important event in the history of the Spanish conquest of the New World. Portraying Father Serra in the pageant, the script for which was prepared from letters and diaries of actual participants in the event, was Father George McMenamin, pastor of Carmel Mission Basilica which served as the administrative center for the chain of missions Father Serra established from San Diego to Sonoma. Father Serra, now a candidate for sainthood, is buried in the mission at Carmel. The' Paulist Choir from Los Angeles sang at the bicentennial Mass, a symbolic remembrance of the first Mass offered in Monterey by Father Serra. The mission church built under his direction became known as the Royal Presidio Chapel when mission activities were moved to Carmel, and this recently redecorated adobe structure presently serves.as San Carlos Borromeo cathedral for the Monterey diocese. After the Mass, the bicentennial celebration continued with a children's party, a chicken barbecue, a parade, and colorful fireworks. A continuing series of. bicentennial events will take place all Summer in Monterey.

SAN JUAN (NC)-An extraordinary session of Puerto Rico's legislature closed here without taking action on a bill designed to provide government aid to private .institutions of. higher education. Several Puerto Rican educators, including the chairman of the commonwealth's council for higher education and the president of the commonwealth university, had urged the Puerto RiCo government to provide aid for the island's private schools. Education council chairman Enrique Cordova Diaz told students at the Puerto Rico Junior College that the government would support such aid plans "were it not for the limitations . of our constitution on aid to private schools." Cordova Diaz added that the aid was essential if private schools, "which the people of Puerto Rico need and will continue to need so great· ly," are to survive.

Marilyn was the very pretty young girl into whose very capable hands I was placed after appearing an hour earlier than I should have for my appointment. The whole atmosphere of the salon was one of relaxed friendliness with the emphasis on the customer. When I had been seated in a deep soft lounge chair with elevated foot rest and wrapped in soft towels, my skin was analyzed, cleansed and covered with oodles of thick, creamy salon cream that is used by the operators to give a professional facial. All the time Marilyn's trained hands were at work she discussed skin care, the effect pollution Is having on the skin of the women of today and the many reasons women should begin caring for their skin at an early age rather waiting for the ravages of time to take their toll. Amazing Results After luxuriating under all this tender care for a half hour or so my skin was cleansed again and then my make-up applied while Marilyn explained what she was using and why. During this process she let me hold a hand mirror to watch exactly what she was doing. The results were amazing; my skin looked better than it had in ages, and the make-up, while quite flattering, didn't look overmade-up. While the natural look

Beauty Routine Miss Hinds, it appears, is a Skidmore College graduate who became interested ·in skin problems and the "science of cosmetics" when she found so many' of 'her classmates besieged by adolescent skin conditions that persisted. After ,graduation she began working in the cosmetic field and developed her own line of complexion aids a'nd cosmetics, and from this evolved the opening of her Boston salon. One interesting feature o( a visit to this salon is the charting of a beautv routine for the customer to follow at home. While it is suggested that one use Miss Hinds' products there is no high pressure salesmanship to make you feel that no others should be used in this routine. I did buy the cleansing cream and three bars of the complexion soap which I found mild enough for the most sensitive skin areas. Lift for Spirits Many women's clubs in this area may be interested to know that Miss Hinds speaks to groups of women on skin care etc. for a fairly nominal fee. Certainly someone as knowledgeable in the. care of the skin and the use of make-up as she would make an interesting speaker. I don't know whether it was the facial, the make-up or just the life my s'pirits experienced during this delightful morning but I do know that the doorman at the hotel gave me a great big "Hello", I had a pleasant conversation with my cab driver about the good to be found in the youth of today, and my husband took me out to lunch. All this for $IO-Certainly a fee much lower than one would pay to have one's spirits raised by a psychiatrist.

Bell, normally, prefers the quiet life. He and his family are devoted to St. Hugh's Catholic church affairs, historic Philadelphia, and, particularly, the Kensington· section where they reside.

Siovakia'n, Priests Under Red Thumb VIENNA (NC) Hard-line .communists who have returned to power in Czechoslovakia are tightening the screws on priests in the Slovakia region, where, by the government's own statistics, four out of five baptized Catholics maintain their belief in God. . The Slovakian authorities, expressly rejecting the relatively relaxed interpretation of regulations on religion in the liberalized period of Alexander Dubcek's regime in 1968, have ordered a return to strict application of the provisions. ' The "rehabilitation" of clergy and Religious convicted under the Novotny regime in Czechoslovakia came to an end in 1969. Under Dubcek many priests and members of Religious Orders were cleared of charges on which they were sentenced to prison terms by the Novotny govern· ment.

WASHINGTON (NC)-A guide for evaluating religious education programs in Catholic elementary and secondary schools has been refined here by a group of educators. . Meeting at National' Catholic Educational Association headquarters, .the Catholic school officials worked with a document drafted by the association's newly-formed Conference of Religious Education Directors last month at a Metairie, La., workshop. The guide outlines five major areas for examining religious education: goals, programs, organization, supportive services and evaluation. Curriculum and quality of teaching will be considered, as well as visual aids and textbooks used. Religious education specialists will be asked for advice and comment and the guide will be tested in selected schools and Summer programs. After final revision, the guide will be made available to individual Cahtolic schools on request.

Bell found himself the owner of the whole plant-church, parish house and all-for $11,900. Mrs. Bell said: "I didn't know he was going to bid on all of it. When he did I almost fainted. I had to have some help standing up after it was over." After recovery from auctionitis fever, Bell said he realized the Kensington community had wanted the old church building (built in 1904) for a community recreational center. He said: "If the community doesn't rally behind me now, I'm in a bucket. I feel sure the residents will they've wanted the church for a long time." Mrs. Doris Walton, head of the area civic improvement group, said the group is looking forward to getting the ,building in shape for neighborhood recreation-but mentioned nothing about financial plans to take the church building off John J. Bell's hands. "I think I was half unconscious when I started bidding on the church," said Bell. "All we ever owned was a house. Now, all of a sudden, we have another house and a church," said the still bewildered Mrs. Bell.

DENVER (NC) - Dr. W. A. Criswell, president of the 11.4 million member Southern Baptist. Convention, warned Baptists here that they "must not seek to alter our theology to conform to the passing philosophical fancies and fashions of the day." Dr. Criswell, who delivered the opening address at the Baptists' annual meeting here, reo ceived strong applause when he said, "It is folly to bend theology to fit man when the Bible teaches that men must be altered to con· form to the theology of God." Dr. Criswell urged the about 10,000 Baptists here to maintain their denominational unity, lest they sacrifice the impact of their traditional evangelistic emphasis. "We must maintain our doc· trines and principles or lose our unity and message. There will be no peace to us and no offer of hope to a troubled world if we lose the doctrinal basis for the gospel we preach," said Dr. Criswell.

fail in Attempt To Upset State School Aid Law LANSING (NC) - Michigan Atty. Gen. Frank J. Kelley has ruled as invalid petitions being circulated throughout the state designed to kill newly enacted legislation providing $25 million in aid for nonpublic school students. Kelley issued the opinion as a result of a request made earlier in the month by Rep. Stanley M. 'Powell c,9ncerning validity of the petitions. Powell is an opponent of state aid to nonpublic schools. The petitions seek an amendment to the l\'lichigan constitution which would repeal existing and future services to students' attending nonpublic schools. It was estimated that more than 160,000 signatures had been obtained on petitions. Michigan requires petitions from 246,000 resident voters to place an issue on a ballot for referendum. The petitions were being circulated by the Council Against Paroch- . ial aid in the hope of getting the issue before voters in the November election. Election Laws Clear Rep. Powell, who indicated he was, sympathetic with the petition drive, asked for the attorney general's ruling because he said he believed it would be a wast of time to collect several hundred thousand signatures statewide only to find out later the petitions were not in proper form. Atty. Gen. Kelley's opinion said the state election laws are clear on the matter. He said a petition to amend the ·constitution must specify precisely the form of the proposed amendment. Since the petitions do not meet the required form specifications, Kelley said: "I am therefore constrained to hold that in such respect the petition submitted does' not comply with Uiat particular requirement." Federal Funds The Michigan legislature in late 1969 approved a $1 billion state school aid bill, including the $25 million for aid to nonpublic school students. Tied in with the bill was a provision that all federal funds, currently estimated at $40 million a year, made available for elementary and high schools in the state be distributed to all schools. The federal' fund feature of the bill was not spelled out in the anti-public school aid petitions. Success of the petition campaign, some authorities said, would jeqpardize the $40 million in federal funds to the state. Atty. Gen. Kelley's opinion said: "It would be impossible for a signer to said petition to know with any degree of certainty exactly what amendment was proposed by said petition." Kelley's opinion was viewed as having the effect of keeping the constitutional amendment question off the November ballot.

Prisoners Advise Teenage Students

NEW YORK (NC)-Evangelist Dr. Billy Graham's new movie about Israel, which is being shown through the' cooperation of the American Jewish Committee to both Christian and Jewish audiences, has received acclaim from all faiths. Adam Reilly of the National Catholic Office for' Motion Picutres said his office will promote the film which "is a good discussion starter on the place of the Jew in the modern world." The color film entitled "His Land" was filmed in Israel and relates the prophecies of the Bible to modern times. It takes the viewer on pilgrimages to Jerusalem, Bethlehem. Galilee, Tel Aviv and the Negev. The final 10 minutes of the film, calling for "decisions for Christ," are omitted when the movie is shown to non-Christian audienc,es. Last month when Dr. Gra· ham's movie production com· pany World Wide Pictures received comments from all faiths about the movie, these were in· cluded: Sister Rose Albert Thering of the Institute of Judeo-Christian Studies, Seton Hall University, said "the picture is ecumenically excellent."

Earlier in the week, some 600 representatives of state education associations and the Illinois Council of Churches demonstrated on the capitol steps, waving anti-nonpublic aid picket signs and singing religious .and patriotic hymns. At the same time, about 100 women representing the National Catholic Society of Foresters, meeting in Springfield for their statewide convention, visited their respective legislators to ask for help on aid proposals. Statements of concern on the financial crisis facing Illinois nonpublic schools were issued by Cardinal John Cody of Chicago, the Chicago archdiocesan school board, and the state's six diocesan school superintendents.

Maneuvers Fan I1linois Gov Richard Ogilvie has called for aid to nonpublic ' schools for the past two years. Both times, aid bills passed the state House but were killed in the senate education committee. The 1969 aid bill sought a $32 million appropriation for the state to purchase secular educational services from nonpublic school. This year's bill, introduced to a $29.5 million appropriation request, due to a number of nonpublic school closings. Proponents of non public aid tried various political maneuverings to get some favorable legislation passed. State Sen. Arthur J. Bidwill called for a vote to discharge the Copeland bill from the Senate committee so that it could be voted on by the Senate as a whole. ' Backers of the Bidwill motion thought an amended form of the Copeland bill could be passed if there was sufficient support to take the bill out of' committee. But the motion failed by a narrow vote of 27 to 26. The same afternoon, the Senate education committee sent the" Copeland bill and two others dealing with rionpublic school aid to probable oblivion in a subcommittee.

WASHINGTON (NC)-A five year grape boycott is beginning to payoff, "But we won't quit until we win," declared the priest-research director of the United Farm Workers Organizing Committee. Father Victor Salandini said that what his group is really against is the buying of grapes by the Defense Department. "Sales have increased about 800 percent over the last two years," he said. In addition to Father Salandini's lobbying efforts to stop these sales, union members have been in New York foil' several months organizing a grape boycott under the direction of the group's vice-president, Andrew Imutan. The priest said the group would concentrate its activities against several stores, all members of the same chain, which he said appears to be the only one left in the city selling California table grapes. Time is on the side of the boycotters, the priest said. "If we don't win this year," added Father Salandini, "we won't give up.

Episcopalian Dean Scores Churchmen WASHINGTON (NC)-America's only black Episcoplian dean told Episcopalain clergymen at the National Cathedral here that the most urgent missionary work in the United States is not in the often-black ghettoes of the city, but among "suburban heathens." Very Rev. Dillard Robinson, dean of Trinity Cathedral in Newark, N. J., charged that churchmen have been "the biggest prostitutes in America" for failing to support social reform. Rev. Robinson said that fear of a drop in income has prevented many clergymen from speaking out on controversial issues. "That's forgetting that Christianity originally was a revolution," he added. "If Christ were alive today, he would be a radical."

THE ANCHOR-Diocese of Fall River-Thurs. June 11, 1970

'Enemies of the Poor' Very Angry Book Lawyer Hit$ Churches, Unions, Legal Profession James Graham, a dedicated lawyer-activist who taught poverty law for a number of years at New York University and Columbia University and is now on the faculty of the College of Law of the University of Arizona in Tucson, has just published a book which is full of righteous indignation against three groups in particular: the churches, the, trade unions, and the legal profession; These three groups, he says, are the principal enemies of

GEORGE G. HIGGINS the poor in the United States. Thus the title of his exceedingly angry book: "The Enemies of the Poor." (Random House, New York $7.95.) For present purposes and for obvious reasons I am chiefly concerned with Mr. Graham's scathing attack on the Christian churches in general and the Catholic Church in particular. Writing as a Catholic, he is merciless-and, unfortunately, rather sarcastic at times-in his criticism not only of the leaders of the Catholic Church, but of the entire Catholic community, lock, stock and barrel. For all practical purposes, the only "good guys" in his simplistically black-and-white scenario' are a couple of priests in Man· hattan and a handful of "rebel priests" and like-minded laymen in the Dioce.se of .Brooklyn.

.J,.

Everyone Out of Step I don't know all of these priests, but those that I do know are deserving, in my judgment, of the generous praise that Prof· essor Graham has heaped upon them. \ On the other hand, I think it is regrettable that Professor Graham felt it necessary to build up the reputation of these militant "ghetto priests" by ruthlessly tearing down the reputation of their own bishops and, inde~d, of the entire American hierarchy -and not only the hiearchy, but the entire Catholic community as well. . Much as I regret having to say so, I get the impression that what he is really trying to tell us-or, in any event, what he comes through as telling his read· er-is that everybody else in the Church is completely out of step except Professor Graham and the' beleagured little coterie of militant priests and laymen with whQm he has been associated (in some very worthwhile projects, let it be said) in the greater New York area. That may conceivably be true, of course, but then, again, it may just happen to be a slight exaggeration. Tarnishes Reputation All I know for certain is that whatever Mr. Graham may think about the, performance of the hierarchy, the clergy, and the laity in the field of social weI· fare and socio-economic reform (and he doesn't think very much of it, that's for sure), he has badly overreached himself and has tarnished his reputation as a legal scholar by questioning other peoples motives with what

I can only describe as wild aban· don. His clincher in this regard comes in the form of a very. heavy·handed rhetorical question: "Is it too· cynical to suggest that churchmen want to believe that the bulk of reliefers are moral delinquents, because to admit to economic causes would betray the startling contrast bet~een Christian rhetoric and reality, between the comfortable circumstances of the great mass of believers and the innocents on the AFDC rolls?"

poses, but it is people who enter polling booths . . . " By this he means and so states in another context that "if the Church is to play a meaningful role in the secular city, it must act as an entire community." Reform Week

going to find allies is among the silent majority; you will not find allies by engaging in precisely that sort of behavior which is most likely to antagonize them. No Easy Answers

There is a large number of Americans dissatisfied with the war in Vietnam, with heavy taxation, with incompetent governmeiltal bureaucracy, with leadership that does not tell it the truth, with the directionless drift which has characterized the United States since the assassination of John Kennedy. Youth has no monopoly on such dissatisfactions. The difference, I think, between the younger generation of the dissatisfied and the older generation is that the latter realizes that there are no quick and simple and easy answers to the question of what to do about those aspects of American society which one does not like. Similarly, in the Church it is not just the young who are dissatisfied with the quality ofecclesiastical leadership but what the young clergy don't seem t~ realize is that the' silent majority is dissatisfied not merely with the top level leadership but is dissatisfied with them, too.

But the conservative charge is more serious for, apparently to the fevered minds of the New Left, anybody who is concerned with actually accomplishing social change is a conservative. Only those who pursue tactics which have been demonstrably counterproductive are to escape the conservative label.

Archbishop Stresses W.omen's Role in Current Unrest CINCINNATI (NC) - Cincinnati's Archbishop Paul F. Leibold said here 'women can provide correct· answers for many of today's critical problems, ranging from unrest among the young to turmoil in th¢ Church. Celebrating his 30th anniversary in the priesthood on "Archbishop Leibold Day" proclaimed by Acting Mayor James H. McCabe, the prelate was feted at a luncheon by the Dayton Catholic Women's' Club. . Discussing unrest among youth and violence of college campuses, the archbishop said the young "are operating from a very definite value base which is evidently quite different from what we consider our tr.aditional Christian one."

He refrained from criticism of some aims of the younger generation-rejection of "our technological monster, racism, subtle repression"-but said the time is at hand when women can provide the young with a solid value system. Spirit of Criticism He called women God's "chosen vessels of spiritual values" and said now is the most favorable time in history "for the promotion of woman toward her full human stature." The archbishop said women should be a decisive factor for the renewal of the Church and welcomed increased dialogue between them and Church leaders. He urged women to work particularly to promote loyalty' to

the Church. "A corrosive spirit of criticism has become fashionable in some sectors of Catholic life," Archbishop Leibold said. "There are, for example, so-called Catholic magazines and newspapers which seem to have no other function than t~at of reporting unpleasant news regarding facts and persons in the ecclesiastical area." Frequently such news is presented "in a unilateral way" and perhaps some news reports are "even altered and dramatized to make them more interesting and spicy, so that readers become used, indeed, not to diffidence and to a preconceived lack of esteem for ecclesiastical persons, institutions and activities."

I think homework should be something they do at hometo, help their mothers. When homework is schoolwork that I have to help them with, I'm less than enthus,iastic.

coming home with a punishment which requires three hours writing "because the class was talking." When the children have misbehaved at home,' I don't send them to school to be punished; so should the sisters send the school nonsense back home? I've .often wondered what would happen if. I sent a message, "See that my child spends the day cleaning the classroom. He didn't clean his room this morning." At least it would be more related to the crime than "write the multiplication tables 10 times because you were running in the hall." On various 'occasions I've tried to understand the school's point of view. And, on various other occasions I've tried to get the school to understand my point of view. Neither has met with much success. So, I blunder along till Spring, then start counting the, days' till Summer vacation'. Six-Page Reports I keep telling myself the modern methods are better, and in most cases I know they are. But, when they came home with their report cards ending the mid-term semester, I had some doubts. 'What happened to. the old report cards that were simply a list of marks and an average? You just louked down the line and knew what they were passing and what they were failing. Someone must have decided the old report card didn't allow for a full interpretation of the child's achievements. A new form has taken its place. It's six pages long-and has room for 67 comments. Ten of them are basic marks with 40 qualifying ·categories. There are six personal characteristics with II alternative evaluations. Granted it gives a pretty thorough report on each child. The trouble. was that five of them came home with these cards at the same time. Five of them were, showin'g them to me at the same time. Every one wanted my comments at once. That's 335 marks I have to evaluate.

But, whether tl).ey were passing or failing. I couldn't say. Besides ,there was to be a parent-teacher conference. Maybe' I could learn something there. I ran into a confusion of opinions. I understand that the Sisters can have some problem children in their classes. Would you believe I have a few problem Sisters among those who teach my kids? Trouble With Reading With most of the Sisters I got simple answers, and knew where I stood. ,With !my "problem!',Sister I came away feeling whatever was right 'with the· child was due to her marvelous teaching; whatever was wrong, was my fault. I reached the last interview. somewhat worn out,· because of all the advice and admonitions that had been poured on me. Sister had ~aught several of my children. and I knew her quite well. She' was very sweet and conscientious. She expl;lined that my daughter was, hiving trouble with her reading. If I could spend a little time, maybe only a half-hour, with her every day, having her read aloud to me, it would help to improve her ability. Instead of simply promising I would do it, knowing I would never get to it, and thanking her for the interview, my'fatigue . got the best of me. Worn 'Out "You know, Sister, it's getting near the end of the term. I'm pretty well worn out trying· to help them with homework. I can't promise you that I'll help her every day, because I know I might do it once and not get to it again for days. Suppose we just let her stumble her way through to the end, of the term, and maybe I'll be more inspired next September." I expected her to be shocked by my "indifferent parent" attitude. Instead, she shocked me. "You're right. You know, I get pretty well fed up by this time of. the year, myself. I can hardly wait for the term to be' over. "But, that's the kind of advice we're supposed to givc--:.and most of the parents expect to hear." , She raised her hand in a' guesture of conviviality, "To Summer Vacation!"

Vatican Envoy Continued from Page, One government and Church officials involved. ,Ronald Ziegler, the White House press secretary, announ'sed the hews to reporters at his regular morning briefing on June 5. saying that Nixon had asked Lodge to visit the Vatican "from time to time" and that Nixon believes the visits "will be in our national interest.!' On Continuing Basis "Ambassador Lodge' will be discussing any international or humanitarian subJects of interest and concern to the Vatican and the Pope and the President," said the presidential press spokesman. Ziegler said Lodge would be "<;:onveying the/views of the President and soliciting views" on those subjects at the Vatican. He said Nixon felt it was "important to have the benefit of the Vatican's "information and views on a continuing basis." At the Vatican, a press office spokesman said: "We welcome this appointment as a means of more direct colloquy and dialogue for peace." Ip answer to a question, the spokesman said the Vatican had 'never expressed opposition to a ,presidential - visitor' relationship, in the place of full diplomatic relations. . In Washington, the Apostolic Delegate to the United Stateswho also has less than diplomatic status, as the papal represenative to American Catholics and not to the American government-expressed confidence that the. Lodge appointment would be reviewed favorably by other nations. Valuable Relationship Archbishop Luigi Raimondi, the delegate, said, the naming of Lodge was "re~ognition of the special peace-making mission of the Holy See." He said the Vatican, considers the relationship "valuable in these times" and added that the 'arrangement was part of an effort to achieve "the goal of peace in international, relationships." , , The appointment was preced, ed by a weekend visit to Rome in mid-May by Peter Flanigan, U.S. Presidential assistant. Flanigan's trip went unannounced. He spent some time with Archbishop, .Giovanni Benelli, Vatican Undersecretary of State, but did not see Pope Paul. ,The special character of Lodge's function, lacking as it does any qiplomatic status, eliminates any required Congression-. al action. The U.S. Senate must approve ambassadorial appointments made by a President.' Preside'!! Harry S. Truman had proposed Gen. Mark Clark as a full ambassador to the Vatican in, October 1951, touching off considerable stir. The idea . was quickly abandoned.

"The Irish Mammie from Africa" They call her the "Irish Mammie", for she is both mother and sister to the people of Sierra Leone, Africa. "Mammie" is an Irish missionary Sister who has spent hte last 17 years curing and teaching. and laughing and praying with the people of this small African village. . . " ", "Mammie" is an official member of many native families. At a recent wedding in the town, Sister was granted part of the girl's dowry (a privilege usually reserved for members of the immediate family). This assured her of her family status, as well . as the right to give advice in any marital disputes which might arise. What this little nun lacks in physical stature, she makes up - for in stamina, courage, foresight and faith. When Sister first arrived in the village, there were no medical facilities at all. But her skill as a surgeon was matched only by her genius for invention. She erected a make-shift clinIC and was soon on call 24 hours a day. She began c1asses..;....training medics and nurses. She toured the village giving instructions on basic hygiene and health care. Today, Sister has a team of six missionary sisters who staff two mobile clinics, an~ a core of top-notch African nurses. Yet, there are still many serious problems here. There is still a 40 per cent to 50 per cent infant mortality rate because of low nutritional standards. There is still a high rate of illiteracy. There are still poor farming and living conditions. But "Mammie" is ,fiercely proud of her African family. When speaking of Africanization, Sister most emphatically states that African culture is "different", not "inferior". Her efforts both as doctor and missionary have clearly brought out the best of African culture. . And so it was for her. African "family" that "Mammie" came to beg. Sl)e needs money to build a new medical center; she needs. m~ney to train more nurses; she needs money for new equipment. And we, in turn, come begging to you for all the "Mammies" who work so lovingly and devotedly for all God's children. Please send your offering today. '

Advises Political Pressure To Delay Arms Escalation

Pope Observ'es Golden Jubilee

When, a short time ago, Captain James Lovell of Apollo 13 thanked President Nixon for the Medal of Freedom, he recalled his vision of the earth as he had seen it from what now' seemed the warm comfort of his earlier' . mission on Apollo 8. From his windows then he had most three times over.

beauty and the uniqueness of . our planet are fading a little as the freshness wears off. But it had not worn off for Captain Lovell on the darkened, cold and crippled capsule of Apollo 13. He saw again, as he reminded the President and the crowds and the world, that this Planet Earth is the only place where life can be maintained, the only hope for survival for sentient beings, the only conceivable haven for those three beset and courageous astronauts. Either they made it back to earth or they were extinguished in infinite space. Near Extinction Is there any hope that the human race can realize in time that they are in exactly the same predicament? They are careering along in their orbit round the sun at unbelievable speeds, survival ensured only by the thin casings of air which keep out the killing heat and killing .cold, only by the tiny supplies of cultivable soil and drinkable water. As with Apollo 8, the space ship that is this whole earth appears to be functioning well, in a physical sense. All of us aboard are not concerned about air running out or soil unusable or water that can no longer be drunk. Yet if we could see with entire clarity what we are ~oing to ourselves, our spaceship can be said to be perilously close to the predictment of Apollo 13. We seem, in fact, to be devoting much of our best intelligence and finest technology to preparations to blow the "panels" of our planet in such a way that the whole human race will not be far off the near-extinction of the astronauts..And then no friendly external Flight Direction, safe in some other place, would be giving us directions for a safe way out. In the week of Apollo's flight, the most reliable and prestigious of all the bodies which monitor the world's warlike activitiesLondon's Institute of Strategic Studies-produced its annual estimate of where the world is going with its armaments. The survey gives cunent figures for the nuclear armaments of the Great Powers. Today America can deliver 4,235 nuclear warheads, Russia 1,880. On present planning, by 1975, the the use of mulitple warheads will multiply both ar!i~mals al-

warheads, particularly the 25 megaton warhead attached to its mammoth SS-9 missile. But the relative power is less important than the fact that either Power could now destroy most of the other 15 to 20 times over and by 1975 the "overkill" could be nearer 100 times. . This is the potentially explosive force that can change our planet into a larger version of the charred, broken, debris-ridden capsule the astronauts saw floating past them as it sped on into infinite nothingness. Atomic Death The argument has been made in this column before. But it must be made again. The arms race between the two SuperPowers is a total folly. It is 1I. folly first because their equal scientific skills imply that neither side can get decisively . "ahead" in killing power. Continued competition merely means continued insecurity at ever higher levels of spending. But the second root of the folly is far more serious. The biological damage of even a first strike will shatter our "capsule," our planet Earth, quite sufficiently to draw the attackers, the attacked and the bystanders into the slow horrors of atomic death. The fate which seemed to hover over'the three astronauts--of undrinkable water, polluted air, rising fever.·and extinction in the darkness of the void-is even now heing prepared for the human family by the infinitely skillful and infinitely stupid "military /industrial complex" of both Russia and the United States. Passionate Conviction Can we learn in time to see ourselves as possibly destined to be dying astronauts on a crippled earth? Does it matter whether we ·do or not? Have we any .influence? The answer must surely be that in an open society, such as America's,Congressmen are responsive to passionate conviction among the voters on whom their re-election depends. To agitate for a moratorium on further arms escalation, to demand a steady reduction in the military budget, to give active support to the Russian-American talks on arms limitation and in particular to imaginative American initiatives-all these attitudes sway the Congress and ultimately the Administration. Can a Christian try to do less?

VATICAN CITI (NC)-Pope Paul VI celebrated the 50th an· niversary of his ordination as a priest by celebrating Mass in the tiny church of St. Ann's, the parish church of Vatican City, for a small congregation of 500 persons who had been invited by the Pontiff himself. The Mass, on May 29, was a private affair, or at least as private as is possible for any event in the Pope's life outside of the Vatican palace. Press, radio anu television were conspiciously absent because instructions had been given that no publicity was to be devoted to the ceremony because the church is quite small. Although the morning Mass was a private affair, there were some high officials and prelates present, including Cardinal Terence Cooke of New York. Also present were all the· personnel of the papal !>ecretariat of state led 'by the secretary, Cardinal Jean Villot, and the former secretary, Cardinal Amleto Cicognani. The' 72-year-old Pope did not deliver a sermon but after the Mass, stopped to shake hands and exchange' greetings with many of those present, including Cardinal Cooke. 'The morning Mass was in great contrast to the Pope's public observance of the Feast of Corpus Christi the day before. The feast day is a public holiday in Italy, and the Pope took the occasion to go to an outlying parish of Rome to celebrate Mass amid thousands of . ROlJlans and visitors.

SOUTH ORANGE (NC) - A priest who has been active .in student affairs has been named as the new president of Seton Hall University here. Father Thomas G. Fahey, 47, was selected after a four-month search by the board of trustees after some 180 candidates were screened for the position. Father· Fahey, vice-president for instruction since 1963 succeeds Auxiliary Bishop John J . • Dougherty of Newark, who resigned a year ago. Ordained in 1947 to serve the Newark archdiocese, which conducts the university, Father 'Fahey taught at Setort· Hall Prep until 1955 when he joined the university faculty. He served as athletic director; a teacher of the classics and dean of men before becoming vice-president.. Although - Father Fahey has -been popular among the students throughout his service at 'the university, the trustees underscored that his choice' was not connected ,with this popularity. The selection was based on his all-around merits, the trustees indicated.

College Youths Find Religion Irrelevant PRINCETON (NC) - A Gallup poll relased here shows that some 58 per cent of the nation's college students find organized religion irrelevant. "I can't see how church-going relates to living a good life," one student remarked, and the survey indicated his attitude was typical. Liberal male upperclassmen at northern private colleges seem to find organized religion least relevant to their lives: Conservative females in their freshman or sophomore year at southern church-related schools find religion most relevant, Everybody else fits in somewhere between the two extremes. The survey was conducted from April 24-May 3 and was drawn from a nationwide sample of 1,114 students at 55 colleges and universities.

Says Ugly American Image Hurts Ties Venezuela President Scores Press, Movies, TV WASHINGTON (NC) - Venezuela's president said here that a bad press, plus projection of an ugly American-type image, today is damaging seriously U. S.-Latin America relations. , President Rafael Caldera, featured speaker at a National Press Club luncheon, told newsmen the U. S. press often has turned "good news into no news," relyinK mostly on "bad news" about Latin America. He deplored, too, the distasteful image which the U. S. and its people are reaping from current movies, television and radio programs carried in his own and other Latin American nations. Regarding the bad press, President Caldera lamented: "Only deplorable incidents receive wide publicity >Co >Co '" Little is .said about literary and scientific accomplishments, about man's efforts to bring nature under control; little is said of social organization and defense against dangers to peace and development." Caldera added: "It is much easier to represent the Latin American ,as an unruly person, as a difficult neighbor, as one incapable of achieving what others have in economics and technical fields. "I believe in the power of mass communication, as it has a daily influence upon the judgment of each citizen who molds in his heart the feelings that ultimately influence his will," the visitor added.

Following his novitiate, Father Polselli studied at Holy Cross College, Washington, D. C. During his theological studies, he was engaged in such apostolic activities as tutoring and teaching at the Catlu>lic Spanish Center in Washington. In the Summer of 1967, he accepted a' position as counselor with the Senior Centers of Dade County, Fla., working principally with the Cuban elderly. Father Polselli received his Master's degree in theology from the University of Notre Dame in 1968.

Brooklyn Schools Fight Drug Abuse BROOKLYN ~q -The Brooklyn diocesan schools office has launched a program that will attack drug abuse among high school students from two angles. ' The first is through a pilot project in a Brooklyn high school that draws together teach· ers, students, including nonusers of narcotics and professional anti-drug therapists. The second approach is the formation of a coordinating council on drug abuse education and information that will include civic, religious and legislative officials. ' The training for Living Institute, a Manhattan-based agency, is conducting the 'pilot project at· Nazareth High School. Members of the institute's professional staff meet regularly with 30 students, ranging from freshmen to seniors in a series of seminars designed to study the underlying causes of drug use and abuse.

November 'Off.Year' Elections Most Interesting, Important' WASHINGTON (NC) - The elections coming up this November, to fill all the seats in the House of Representatives and a third of the seats in the Senate, promise to be among the most interesting in decades. Called "off-term" and "offyear" elections, because no presidential candidates will be on the ballots, November's voting, could turn into a "referendum" on President Nixon's administration, some political soothsayers are predicting. To the extent that this turns out to be true, and can be so interpreted, the elections should also have unusual importance. A striking phenomenon right now is that recently the, country's economic plight seems to be nudging the Vietnam war and the Cambodia fighting a little to one side as the principal point of focus. One political practitioner here has been quoted anonymously as saying that, while probably one family in every 10 is directly involved through relatives in the fighting in Vietnam, every family in the nation is directly involved in rising prices and unemployment, the slide in the stock market, the threat of new deficits and taxes, and so on. Politicians notice .such things. National Issues Samplings of thinking and talking taken around the country, and reported back here, indicate that people in all sections are thinking about the same things-the war, the increasing cost of living, campus disorders, and a half-dozen other things that almost daily are in the headlines. This indicates that local elections, and that is what they are this year, may be settled on national rather than local issues, President Nixon, meanwhile, seems determined to pursue the courses he has taken-with regard to Vietnam and the economic crisis-confident that in time they will prove to have been the right ones, though they are meeting with barrages of criticism. ' Everything 'On Target' The President invited some 60 of the nation's business leaders to dinner May 27 at the White House, for the announced purpose of explaining the Cambodian situation to them., That same day, even before the dinner, the stock market ,rose 32 points, a record for a single day. At the dinner, the President told the businessmen that "everything is on target and' going better than anticipated: in the Cambodian operation." He repeated the Administration's forecast of an upturn in business in the second half of 1970. One guest said after the dinner that the Presid'ent had done "a fine job of explaining a lot of things that mignt have puzzled people before." He added that "any time you hear things you've read in the papers direct from the President of the United States, you're a little more impressed." As of now, those who are venturing opinions seem to feel that the Republicans have a poorer chance now than they had several months ago to capture additional seats in the' two houses of Congress. Many feel there won't be much change. [.Qwerlng Voting Age It is still some five months to 'November, and things could happen by then to change the picture. But such happenings would have to be dramatic. There would seem to. be an opportunity for the Democrats

in the November elections, but whether they can seize it is open to questio'n. At present the Democrats have no single solid leader around whom to rally. They will have to come up with one by the time of the 1972 presidential elections, of course. The temper of the country shown in November's elections may help the "king-makers" in determining what manner of man he should be. Some political writers are bold enough to say the same thing applies to the Republicans. And, if it should just come about that by 1972 a constitutional amendment could be added lowering the voting age, the picture would take on another dimension.

_Wayne Pitts of New Bedford

Impresses Coach at Worcester Tech Two-Sport S.tar Won Murphy Memorial Award At, the conclusion of his high school career, Wayne was awarded the coveted James P. Murphy Memorial Club Award at the school's annual Spring awards' day program. The award is given annually for high scholastic standing as well as standout athletic ability. Pitts was one of the top students in his senior class and maintained a high B average throughout his four years at New Bedford High.

By Luke Sims When Worcester Polvt;echnic Institute opened fts 1970 freshman baseball season, Wayne Pitts was in the starting lineup. The former New Bedford High two-sport star athlete was the second baseman for Coach Mel Massucco's Lit~le Engineers as they played host' to' Assumption Prep. The freshman coach has been most impressed with the play of the former New Bedford High star and, readily predicts a "bright athletic future in the years ahead." ' Pitts distinguished himself on the gridiron this past Fall and should be a great help to the varsity, next season. He garnered the headlines on several occasions but his finest game came in WPI's 14-7 victory over Rensselaer Poly' freshman on Nov. 3. Wayne scored both touchdowns, his first on ,a brilliant 75-yard pass-run play midway through the second period and another on a 60-yard punt re. turn in the third quarter.

WASHINGTON (NC) - Nine members of the' U. S. Catholic Conference's committee for ihternational affairs, five of them bishops, have issued a statement here charging the government of Brazil with mounting "a campaign of terror against the Catholic Church." Issued on the first anniversary of the brutal murder of a Brazilian priest, Father Henrique Pereira Neto of Recife, the statement said that Father Neto's only crime was "an active concern for social justice and the liberation of men." Father Neto was a close friend of Archbishop Helder Camara of Olinda Recile and his vicar for youth affairs. The progressive priest was a friend of many student leaders who were highly critical of Brazil's military regime. One of the student leaders was shot mysteriously in ,Recife about a month before the killing of Father Neto, who was beaten; shot and hanged. His body was found hanging from a tree on the campus of Recife University. Archbishop Camara blamed the priest's death on reactionary groups. The chief suspect is a rightist terrorist organization called the Anti-Communist Hunt Commandos, whose members include ultraconservative elements in the armed forces. That organization has said it considers progressive priests more dangerous that communists, themselves. Four gunmen who machinegunned the home of Archbishop Camara in 1968 are believed to be members of the same group. 'Systematic Terror' , Father Neto's death, the nine signers declared, was no isolated instance, but "a part of a wider picture of systematic terror. The crippling of a Catholic student 'leader, the imprisonment and beating of others, including nuns and priests, the deportation of North American and European' missionaries, the baseless accusations brought against several Brazilian bishops, even the attempted suicide of a tortured Dominican friar-these are 'instances' which add up to a 'campaign of terror against the Catholic Church." Yet others, the statement continued, are treated even more harshly because they do not have the ready access to world public opinion that Catholic leaders have'. ' The nine signers ended their statement by emphasizing that in the face of evidence -brought against the Brazil government, they could not remain silent.

On 'All' Teams Worcester Coach John Veino was quick to praise the efforts of his star halfback. "Pitts' second touchdown on the punt return was strictly by his own efforts. We had a blitz on the kicker and Wayne picked up the first 30 yards himself before our blockers were able to give him any help at all." Pitts enjoyed similar success on the gridiron and diamond at Sargent Field in New Bedford and other "battle pits" through-' out .Bristol County. • He was a star halfback and captain for Coach Joe Betten-

Richmond Diocese Has Due Process RICHMOND (NC)-The, Richmond diocese has established a non-judicial due process system, 'consisting of a conciliation and arbitration service designed to help safeguard rights of all members of the Church. Central to the procedure is a five-member board of administrative 'review, to receive complaints, determine if due process has competent jurisdiction, and dispose of grievances by conciliation or arbitration or, if possible, work out a settlement with an appropriate agency. The board may reject complaints when its chairman and two other members concur. Bishop John J. Russell of Richmond confirmed selection of the first board, consisting of two priests elected by the Council of Priests, two lay persons elected by me Diocesan Pastoral Council and one persor. appointed by the bishop-his choice was a lay woman.

court's unbeaten eleven during his junior year and was the starting catcher for the State Tournament semi-finalist the following year. He wa's named to several "All" teams in both sports during his junior and senior years including the New Bedford Stanoard Times All-Scholastic squads. Among Top Studen~s Baseball Coach John Pacheco once said of Pitts: "He's the type of kid who just has to play. He hurt a toe before one game and had an ice pack on it all night and played the next day without a word."

Denver Sisters Get Pay Raise DENVER (NC)-Sisters of the Denver archdiocese will receive a pay' increase from $2,000 to $2,400 per year, effective July 1. The raise was recommended by a' committee appointed to examine' nun~! salaries by Archbishop James V. Casey. Auxiliary Bish9P George Evans, who served on the committee headed by Msgr.Edward Leyden, said the committee will study what uses can be made of existing convents not now being used to capacity. The money for the salary increase will come from each parish, which averages four Sisters' services, Bishop Evans said. Biggest concern of nuns is to find a way to financially provide for their own retirement and for the Sisters already retired, the committee reported. There is also a need for Sisters to help provide for education 'of Sisters within their communities.

College President LADYSMITH (NC)-Dr. Robert E. Lpvett, vice-president at Parsons College, Fairfield, Iowa, has been appointed president ,of Mount Senario College, conducted by the Servite nuns here in Wisconsin. He has served as a teacher at a half dozen colleges and has headed fundraising and development programs at several institutions.

'Player of Year' As a junior he was awarded a Sportsmanship Award in football and was named to the AllState team. His most cherished award,' however, had to be his selection as the "football player of the year" during that unbeaten season. Pitts is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Harold Pitts Jr., 36 Lexington Street and is a communicant of St. Lawrence Parish. He enjoys all sports, including track and weightlifting . and is "at home" in the water during the Summer months. Only a first year man at Worcester Poly, the athletic future looks extremely bright for the likeable New Bedford lad.

Aid in Distribution Of Holy Communion DETROIT (NC)-A group of 32 laymen, candidates in the Detroit permanent diaconate program, were commissioned ministers of the Eucharist in a special ceremony here. Auxiliary Bishop Walter J. Schoenherr of Detroit officiated at' the commissioning ceremony, authorizing the laymen to assist in distribution of Communion. It was disclosed that 21 of the men will exercise the privilege in their own parishes while the other 12 may be called to assist in parishes when their help is needed. The group is one of the largest commissioned in a diocese in this country under the newly granted permission from the Holy See.

PHILADELPHIA (NC) - Cardinal John J. Krol cautioned here: "It is man who makes war! It is man who must make peace." To achieve the peaceful objective, the Philadelphia archbishop advised: "Man must destroy the instruments of death or be destroyed by them." The cardinal· addressed members of the Philadelphia Public Relations Association, who hon-·· ored him with the organization's 25 th anniversary Public Service Award. The cardinal recalled the association was founded at a time when the world seemed convinced it was embarked on an era of peace."Man's continued discovery of the secrets of nature," the cardinal declared, "is not matched by his discovery of his own spiritual nature. Man's increasing control of the forces about him is not matched by the control of the forces within him." God's Blueprint "To achieve and preserve peace," Cardinal Krol said, "man must acknowledge God. He must acknowledge that there is a necessary and knowable order in the world which God has placed under the control and management of man. The history of mankind proves that there is no substitute for God's blueprint for world order: there is no instant or miracle formula for peace." "Peace is not a vain hope or a sentimental dream," the cardinal continued. "It is a philosophy of action. Man must live and act with the conviction that international affairs are neither self-regulatory nor beyond control; that international. controversies can be r~solved by negotiations based on mutual trust, confidence and willingness to forgive; that such negotiations must respect the right and dignity of all persons ·and peoples and must enlist their cooperation in the pursuit of the shared hopes of mankind." "Today, a gratifying increase in the awareness of the urgent need for peace is matched by a diversity of views on how peace is to be attained. Such diversity, if reaspned and· restrained, can be profitable," he said. "It is good that the young are' interested and articulate and that solons defend their convictions," the cardinal declared. ·"We should not exaggerate the age gap. The world has always been peopled by young and old. Neither has a monopoly on wisdom, vision or courage. Neither is omniscient or infallible." "Both," Cardinal Krol said, "must work together in patience, in faith and in mutual trust. Order cannot be achieved through disorder. Peace cannot be achieved through violenceon the battle front or on the home· front."
