Holy Father Urges Christian Unity The long arduous road toward full Christian .Unity is a response to the Holy Spirit. It is a wonderful movement of the children of God. It is a joyful obedience to the needful call of the Mystical Body. So, the Pope went to Geneva and visited the international home of the Ecumenical ripe enough to be answered. There are grave theological Council of Churches. In an implications, deeper study, and emotional and frank address a real commitment to, a long and to the world leaders of Christian churches and religious bod1es, the Pope acknowledged the anxieties that move all Christians to fulfill Christ's unity prayer but he also faced clearly the many real difficulties in the way. Proclaiming great respect and deep affection for the work of the World Council of Churches, he promised all prayerful and human cooperation in the road to unity. In all fraternal frankness, the question as to whether the Catholic Church should be a member of the World Council, the Pontiff confessed, is not yet

Referring to his own role in ecumenical affairs, the Pope introduced himself as "Peter" concerning whom Christ had lain real responsibilities; "Pastor" the unmerited role as "fisher of men" and "minister of communion" to promote "understanding, cooperation and fraternity" among the Church; and finally, "Paul" the apostolic minister Turn to Page Six

Adapt Hindu Rites To .Mass Liturgy BANGALORE (NC)-The Holy See has approved a 12-point plan of the Indian bishops for adaptation of Hindu rites in the Church's liturgy. The approval means that the Mass in India will begin to look more and more like Hindu temple ceremonies in its ex- thattu" (tray usually made of ternals, and celebrants will brass). The letter called for a gradual be less distinguishable from implementation of the adaptapujaris (Hindu priests).

Full-Time Deacon For Rochester The distinction of becoming the nation's first permanent deacon under the permanent diaconate restored by Vatican Council II fell to the Rev. Mr. Michael G. Cole, 34, of Rochester, N. Y., a former Anglican priest, married and the father of four children. He was ordained a deacon by Bishop Fulton J. Sheen of Rochester. Mr. Cole and his family joined the Catholic Church last year. He and Bishop Sheen met in England. The bishop invited him to come to Rochester, where he was named director of the diocesan Family Life Bureau.

a "catechesis" should precede the changes. The 12-point plan also allows celebrants and the congregation to adopt the sitting posture during Mass like pujaris, to remove footwear, to kiss objects in Hindu fashion by touching them and bringing the hands to one's eyes or forehead and to use incense. Other changes replace the traditional Mass vestments with an . "angavastra" (tunic-type chasuble with a stole) and allow for presentation' of gifts in kind as a preparatory rite during Mass. They also permit the Hindu form of worship-with flowers, or incense or lamp-at the conclusion of the anaphora during the Offertory. The letter also welcomed another proposal of the Indian bishops under which a new Indian aphora, probably in the Sanskrit language, will be composed in collaboration with experts.

PHILADELPHIA (NC) - Pastors of the Philadelphia archdiocese were informed by the superintendent of schools that the Sadlier series of elementary school religion texts, criticized by some parent groups, is "an excellent presentation .of Christian doctrine." . In a .letter to all pastors Msgr. Edward T. Hughes said: "We are most concerned that no unapproved textbooks be introduced into the parochial schools, particularly in light of the strong support given to the series by our religion teachers. and other groups that have reviewed the program." In an apparent reference to a religion series published by the Daughters of S1. Paul which some pastors have reportedly sought to introduce into the elementary schools, Msgr. Hughes noted: "We welcome the consultations of our parish priests and teachers in the, selection of our textbooks." "We know, however, that any attempt to impose religion textbooks which have not been approved by our official religion committee and which are unacceptable to the major~y of the religion teachers in our schools would seriously harm our program."

For. he said, despite the efforts of the Church relief agencies. the emergency program still falls short of providing the women. children and aged in blockaded areas with even their proper minimal nee9s. The missionary said "rations of food distributed are still only Va of a pound per person. and that is only in the most accessible areas. There still remains a large pocket of the population which none of us are reaching consistently. We must face the facts that the air lift will be necessary for many months to come. and quite possibly for at least a year," He continued: "There is no sign of a peace settlement in the near future and this is t.he greatest tragedy of this crisis.

ST. LOUIS (NC)-A group of St. Louis blacks interrupted a noon Mass at a middle-class suburban Catholic church and later announced that it was the first in a Summer-long series of "Black Sundays." The St. Louis Archdiocesan Human Rights Commission, in a subsequent statement to all Catholic pastors, asked that "incidents be avoided" when and if disruptions of services occurred in their churches. The statement noted that "since 'all persons are welcome' in every Catholic church, -the visits to Catholic churches in the area should not in itself be a cause for concern." The demonstration took' place at Ascension church in Normandy, a 25-year-old suburb of middle-income whites and a few but growing number of blacks living in single family bungalows. The . interruption of the Mass, the first such incident at a €atholic church here, was sponsored by the Action Committee To Improve Opportunities for Negroes '(ACTION) a local militant black \group of several years' standing. Demand Support Percy Green, ACTION chairman, said his group was sympathetic to James Forman and the National Black Economic Development Committee but was independent of it. ACTION's demonstration, its first, was at a Catholic church because Catholicism is the largest denomination. in St. Louis, Green explained. The ACTION group approached the Ascension pulpit immediately after Father Paul A. Zipfel,

an associate pastor, finished reading the Gospel. They asked to be allowed' to read a· list of demands, but Father Zipfel refused after an .unidentified layman came forward and threatened to eject the ACTION spokesman bodily. -' Father Zipfel announced that the group would not be allowed to speak, the congregation applauded and the' demonstrators left the church. Later, ACTION' spokesmen said they are planning a series of "Black Sundays" at other Catholic churches in the area to detail charges of. white racism by ~e St. Louis archdiocese and demand support ahd financial aid for black programs. ACTION said it would give no advance notice of the churches to be visited. In leaflets handed out at Ascension church, ACTION claimed that the archdiocese is "doing little or nothing at all" to integrate white suburban, parish schools, that· church schools in black areas are inferior, that black history is not taught throughout the schools. It 'demanded 75' per cent of the annual income of the archdiocese, removal of investments from firms which practice dis-' crimination and public church discipline against white Catholic policemen who fire at fleeing black suspects. \

According to the survey, which brought responses from 175 parishes, the average parish council has 18 members, most of them lay men and women. The range of numbers, however, is from seven in the smallest council to 37 in the largest. In about two-thirds of the councils, an executive secretary conducts the meetings, and iIi the rest they are conducted by the pastor. All but a few of the councils prepare a list of subjects for discussion prior to each session, and many of them distribute copies of the agenda to the members in advance. If the 165 parish councils included in the survey responses, 86 indicated that they had liturgical commissions, 82 had education commissions, 73 had social action commissions, 71 had financial commissions and 61 had ecumenical commissions. Only 41 reported having family life commissions. Most parish councils .have members "at large" in addition to representatives of the various organizations in the parish, and most of the members at large are elected by vote of the parishioners. Some are named' by the council itself and some by the pastor. . Asked if the parish council was "reasonably effective," 147 answered yes and 20 answered no, the report indicated.

LITTLE ROCK (NC)-Bishop Lawrence Preston Graves has begun his duties as auxiliary to the spiritual leader of the Little Rock diocese with an admonition that peace is attainable only "if we are convinced that man is not material because materialism begets inequality, divisions, chasms in society."

Influence vf Religion In a talk to the general assembly of the Church of Scotland, the Duke of Edinburgh called the influence of the churches "absolutely crucial" at the present time. He felt that whether this influence is positive or negative it will affect-as it has affected-the lives of nations and of individuals. The Christian Gospel has touched nations and families and has shaped much of their thinking and acting and their civilization.. The Duke said that the p'roblem facing the churches today is not that the message is being rejected but that in the present-day environment "the messengers are still struggling to find the best way to convey the message so that it holds- the attention of the modern generation and so that its meaning shines out like a beacon in the gl09m of the doubt and confusion of the modern world." It is always good to hear' the views of informed individuals who have wide concerns and who can present a point of view of a somewhat different religiou~ tradi-, tion. The fact remains that the values of religion do and will form the minds and hearts and, therefore, the activities of men. The present burden is on the messengers of religion to make sure that they are getting through to these hearts and minds.

Paul at Geneva At his coronation sO,me six years' ago, Pope Paul spoke remarks in many of the world's languages. And one listener in St. Peter's Square remarked that the won-' derful thing was not what he spoke in these langauages but that he spoke in them. This was a sign even then of his reaching out to all men.. His presence on Tuesday in Geneva at both the International Labor Organization and the World 'Council of Chur(;b~ evidences his concern for abetter" life for all men the world over. And his concern for a greater fellowship among all Christians. The Pope did not gloss over the fact that many difficult obstacles of a theological nature remain in the relationship of the Roman Catholic Church and the churches of the World Council of Churches. His listeners could respect such frankness and truth. But the fact that the Pope spoke before the World Council and stressed with such deep sincerity and obvious emotion his concern for the call of Christ that all be one will have an impact on Christianity. There is an impatience today that makes mat:ly persons want to brush over differences in' belief in a worthy desire to attain to unity. In all reverence and respect for the beliefs and ecumenical desires of others, the Catholic Church still must stand fast in what she holds as the complete teachings of Christ and cannot obtain a present semblance of unity at the price of both present and future confusion in beliefs. " This is not an exercise in stubbornness or monolithic self-concern. It is not a matter of pride or self-assertion for its own sake. It is in keeping with the awesome, commission that she has from Christ and that she cannot' relinquish in any degree.

Prelate Reports Church Progress In Racial Cris;s

~ssue New Riij~e!


HOUSTON (NC) -"Real and measurable progress has been made" Cardinal John J. Wright of Pittsburgh reported to the National Confer路 ence of Catholic Bishops here, in the <::hurch's work on the national race crisis, but in other areas he said "we are still at the starting line." "In ail areas the need far outdistances our efforts and the employment of our resources to date. The plain fact is that the need exceeds our resources, actual and pqtential," he declared. Cardinal - designate Wright's talk titled "The Church and the Urban Crisis" reported on the mandate given the U.S. Catholic Conference's Division for Urban Life to "respond by word and deed to the report of the National Advisory Commission on Civil Disorders." He said "one result can be measured-that is that our relative immobility in the face of crisis points out more clearly than ever the seriousness of our problem. The dangers that beset us as a nation-the crisis of our cities is far greater than even the Kerner Commission realized." He added that "as we look around our nation in the spring of 1969, it is obvious that it is a nation charged with tension." Unselfish Charity He cited the serious unemployment among minorities and other factors which head the country "despite ail the good will toward two nations, one white, one black; or in terms of poverty, one affluent with reference to color, one desperately poor without reference to color." The chief contribution the Church has to make, he said, "includes the example of social justice and of unselfish charity. But the essential mission of the Church it this, as in ail things else, consists in the prophetic appeal to the conscience of the king and of the citizenry; and the sparking of motivation for Christians to go the extra mile -the mile of charity that goes beyond the mile required by justice."

Open New Jersey Housing p'roject ENGLEWOOD (NC)-The first tenilnts have moved into a housing project being constructed in a dilapidated section of this city's ghetto by the Mt. Carmel Guild, social welfare agency of the Newark archdiocese. They made the move with the dedication of the first of six buildings which are to be erected. The first tenants are area people living in' homes which will be razed for the secontl phase of the construction program this fall. That will involve the construction of four buildings. There are eight apartments in the first building, designed by a black architect after the needs of residents were determined. There are four three-bedroom units in the buildings.

AUCKLAND (NC) - The New Zealand bishops have issued a document applying the Vatican's 1967 Directory on Ecumenism to this country. Called "Application or the Directory on Ecumenism," it concentrates especially on the conditions for prayer in common in Catholic and other churches" and on the question of conditionsI baptism of converts. It also deals with baptism in relz.tion to mbced marriages. But it does not deal with the question of the promises regarding . children in mixed marriages, & topic not covered in the DiIrectory on Ecumenism. Introducing the local commlantary in a special newsletter, Bishop Brian Ashby, of Christ Church, chairman of the National Commission on Ecumenism, points out that Pope Paul VI made the original directory a directive and called for its "speedy implementation in all parts of the world." He also draws attention to the statement of the New Zealand bishops in the foreword that "ecumenism is not an optional 'ex_ tra' but an authentic expression of the organic life, of the Church." The bishops emphasize that "the work for Christian unity must concern every member of the Church," and that ecumenical effort must be based on "sound instruction in the teachings and authentic traditions of the other Christian Churches."

~n Ceylon, .T00 Church Runs Private Schools at Financial loss; Government Refuses Aid KANDY (NC)-The provincial synod of the Catholic Church in Ceylon, which has ended its sessions here, made no decision concerning private schools which are run at a financial loss by the Church. _ . The government of Ceylon is unwilling to give any financial aid to these schools, while at the same. time it refuses them permission to charge adequate tuition. This has been the situation for the past eight years. A .growing number of Catholics is asking that the private schools be turned over to the state. A' commission appointed last year at the urging of Thomas Cardinal Cooray, O.M.I., of Colombo studied the school situation but reached no conclusion satisfactory to all concerned.

The 30 Catholic secondary schools that chose to continue as private non-fee institutions after the nationalization of the schools by the Ceylon government in 1960 have been encountering l!evere difficulties in financing and staffing. Voluntary contributions to their support are inadequate. At, the time of the pastoral convention which prepared the way for the. provincial synod, many speakers expressed the opinion that the Church should make her educational system available to the government as a service to the nation. Some said only rich schools could survive under the present system and added that private schools should be open to rich and poor alike.



EVANSTON (NC)-Parishion· ers of St. Nicholas Church here rejected a proposed $25,000gymnasium-social center by a vote of 650 to 241 with 50 abstaining, Father Andrew J. McDonagh, pastor, announced. Father McDonagh ,said vote cards were sent to 1,900 persons of whom 1,500 are officially registered. He explained the vote was taken in this' manner because "the priests, with the parish building and finance committee, felt that they would like to go to the people to have tnem share in the decision," since the matter of the proposed gym-social center had been "a vital issue in St. Nicholas for many years." The Illinois pastor said the "flavor of comments on many vote cards was that we should not build a gym-social center at this time, but rather spend whatever available funds we have on maintaining the superior quality teaching staff and curriculum of the grade school." Father McDonagh said he feels that "going to the people on an issue as vital as this is worthwhile because their . . . judgment is a strong resource for making knowledgeable decisions."

Father Leary has been in Lenox, Mass., since mid-April recuperating from an illness which befell him while on a business trip to the east coast.

Poorly Run Stores Incite Return to Home Sewing

Cord ina I Advises

Mia rquette Grad'S

By Marilyn Roderick

No wonder more and more women are taking up sewing was the thought that ran through my mind as I. viewed the rows of racks that confronted me in the dress section of a large department store. Oddly enough, these were not bargain basement dresses but what one would arm the garments slide together that you really have to consider an assortment of again) buy that particular item awfully better dresses. But the man- badly to put up with this. ner in which they were displayed did little to induce one to buy. Maybe it's just my personal quirk, but my first reaction upon viewing merchandise displayed en masse is to lose interest in what I intended to buy. This mass confusion is usually found in large department stores in shopping areas that cater to a great many surrounding towns. And while I'm well aware that even though they do have 20 dresses in the same style it is very unlikely I, personally, will run into someone else wearing the same dress, this look of "mass production" truly takes away my shopping appetite. Packed Racks Another shopping peeve that really "turns me off" is when racks are so packed with merchandise that you nearly lose your arm in the struggle to push a few aside so that you can view the dresses. This takes such strength and perseverance (every time you withdraw your

Carmelites Convene For Elections, Renewal NIAGARA FALLS (NC)-Carmelites of the Canadian-American province are holding their triannual meeting at Mt. Carmel College here, to elect a new superior and council for the coming three years. The Canadian-American province, with headquarters near Chicago, has monasteries in Massachusetts, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Kentucky, Ohio, Illinois, Kansas, Texas, Arizona, California, Wisconsin, Washington, D.C., and the Ontario province of Canada.

And then there's that darling little specialty shop that treats its customers as if they had the cholera. As your gloved hand reaches out to look through the racks a shrill voice pierces your thoughts. "Don't touch the merchandise with your gloves one," is, the command from stern-faced salesgirl. Such orders do a lot for customer morale in fact it takes one all of a second before indignation rears its ugly head and the cus路 tomer marches out-highly insult路 ed. This same little shop has a buzzer on the outside that you ring, in order that the manager may rush over and unlock the door to those cusomers that she wants to enter. It's run a bit like a high-class speakeasy. These places always bring out the worst in me and invariably I leave without purchasing anything and in a vile mood. Still a Few Fortunately, .there are still a few good stores still left. You know, the type where the customer is made to feel wanted, where her choice is a,ccepted and where sales people are kind and helpful without being cloyingly sweet. In these tasteful shops the merchandise is displayed well, the racks are not crowded and the cusomer is treated as an individual. Fashion forecast for Fall is that the price of clothing (along with everything else)' is still rising. When we're paying such high prices for garments we should at least be able to pick and choose them under the best conditions. Ah well, we can always go' back to the sewing machine and I must confess that I have never met any sales girl in a material department, or store who wasn't the most helpful person imaginable and one who made shopping a joy. If that isn't a case for home-sewing, I don't know what is.

MILWAUKEE (NC) - Critical judgment, optimism, and a sense of humor are necessary for facing and shaping the future, said John Cardinal Dearden of Detroit at Marquette University's badcalaureate program. , IIh his address, the cardinal des[t:ribed critical judgment as "al too rare a gift in our time." He stressed that it is essential in the shaping of the future, for people have to evaluate the times to determine what can be kept and what must be changed. Cardinal Dearden told his audience that evaluation and criticism alone were not enough. People must discover what steps to take to correct the social ills of their time. He pointed out that optimism and a sense of humor are necessary in this attempt. Optimism "is a quality that is greatly needed," for it "enables us, in the light of experience 0 0 0 to look to the future with confidence." Speaking of humor, he said that in a sense critical judgment and optimism are "components" for humor. He told the graduates that "to retain something of that light, confident spirit, reflects our Christian tradition."

Over 100 voices will be heard in selections of sacred music, songs from Broadway musicals and popular motion pic· ture tunes. Bach, Mozart, Peloquin, Lerner and' Lowe, Bernstein, Rodgers and Hammerstein will be among COmposers represented. The church choir includes teachers, students, !lomemakers, a Sister and 'a seminarian, span· ning an age level from junior high school to a grandfather. Its initial performance was given last November at a concert dedicating a new organ at Holy Name Church. The children's choir made its first appearance at a Mass on Pentecost Sunday. Young .Organist

Harold Wilson, Newman' Association chaplain for Bristol Community College,' Fall River. On..e expressed it in a poem: At a glance on the shore All things are the same, All the shells and rocks have no specific names, But at a closer look you will see Each is ,as individual as a personality. If a particular person is different from us, Like the shells we are different, yet one, And in this person we must look for similarity, For if we compare our differences we only widen our animosity. Our lives are like' this house designed by a mad sea captain, A place of crazy corners, of twisted stairs and staggering floors, An old worn insanity whose walls capture space and wrench it into pieces Then crush the pieces together. Set by the sea, sheltered coves, surrounded by grassy fields, A fantastic denial of life-a refusal. This house fights us, and now this weekend we lose each other in the corners (how often have you searched, for someone here?).

Holy Name's organist is John R. Danis, a juhior at Bishop Connolly High School.' He will be joined in Sunday's concert by Mrs. Clifford Shard, pianist; Joseph Bento and Andrew Kozak, trumpeters; and Allen Lechan and Joan Sevigny, violinists. Other instruments to be heard will be bells, tympani and a group of seven guitars. Directors of all choirs is Edward A. Peters, music specialist at Normandin Junior High School and in charge of music at Holy Name Church. A grad· uate of Saltman School of Music, he also holds a master's degree in education from Bridgewater State College. He is music director for Camp Echo, Summer educational day camp operated by the New Bedford public school system. The public is invited to Sunday's concert, for which there w~ll be no admission charge.

We have come to find another, to share this time. We will not divide and stumble and lose our way in darkness. We capture one large room for ourselves, cover others with color, bring scallops (the sea· shell of life) from the shore. We will wrench ourselves out of our old house.

Superior Man It is the mark of a superior man that he will take no harmful ease.-Confucius.



The weekend program included listening, visual and artistic experiences, liturgical services and conferences. Aiding Father Wilson were Rev. Kevin Tripp, Sis-

tel' Teresita, S.U.S.C. and Christian Family Movement members from-Taunton. ' Art Work Much of what participants felt was expressed via art. Sister Teresita presided over a room full of the raw materials for posters, collages, and other creations, and as the weekend progressed the villa walls were cov-' ered with them. Very popular were halffinished posters by Sister Teresita, which the students were invited, to finish. One poster, depicting a lonely 'man, was inscribed "I am alone and you •• *" One s.tudent finished phrase, ". '" ... will n6t be a real friend." Another wrote, ". 0;. 0;. come to give me your hand." A picture of a nurse with an emaciated war orphan elicited the ·scribbled. comment, "Who needs love more - nurse or baby?" and "We all need Care

and Hope and people to love." Shells, tlie symbol of a pilgrim, were frequ~ntly used in collages. One boy wrote at the bottom of a cross of scallop shells, "Loving you is a joy.' Let me share it with you." Summing up. one young adult said, "Eevrything was good but the weather."

PERTH (NC) - Three former Anglican clergymen, all married, were ordained deacons by Archbishop Launcelot Goody of Perth at St. Mary's cathedral. They· , were the first to be ordained as ":Iar~ie4 deaf~J:ls;, in the : ILa,~in rite l~ Al;lst~aha. ., It is expected. that the Australian bishops will approve, with the permission of the Holy See, their ordination as priests later this year. The three' new. deacons are the Rev. John Lisle, the Rev. Frederick Beyer and the Rev. Rodney Williams. They will live with' their families and carry out the duties of deacons in parishes until their ordination to the priesthood.

Paulist Publisher Voices Concern Over Budget Priorities let our voices be heard immediately," Father Illig stated. Father Illig acknowledged that part of the Nixon administration budget is allocated for programs to combat hunger and to improve housing. But he said such praiseworthy efforts will not get at the roots of the nation's most pressing problems - "poverty and race. "If you give a hungry man a fish, you've done him a service," the priest said. "If you teach him how to fish you've done him a greater service. "There is a direct demonstrable relationship between race prejudice and ignorance," he stated. "There is » » » a direct demonstrable relationship between poverty and ignorance. Education is the only Workable solution we have to solve these two issues, and yet the needs of education have been placed extremely low in the list offe~eral priorities." Pass Resolution . Father Illig recently spoke on educational priorities at the first joint convention of the Catholic Press Association and the Associated Church Press, held in Atlanta. Some two-thirds of those present at the convention later voted passage of a resolution introduced by Father Illig deploring the Administration's "lack of practical sympathy for Alm~ Moter Honors education."

WASHINGTON (NC)-A publisher expressed grave concern here about the "lack of priority" accorded to education in the recent budget proposals made by the administration of President Richard M. Nixon. "Where your budget lies, there is your interest," Father Alvin Illig, C.S.P., a director of the Paulist Fathers Publishing Division, said. "The federal government is seemingly saying 'we are little interested in our children at this particular time.' " "If this inaugural budget goes through the way it is, I just hope it won't be that way for four years," the priest said. Last April 16, the Nixon administration released its Budget Committee recommendations for the fiscal year beginning July 1. Of the total Federal Budget recommendations of $19.9 billion,' only $3.2 billion-slightly more than I Yz per cent-was recommended for programs administered by the Office of Education.

Vetoes Aid to Church-Relaifed Colleges Go",.


ALBANY (NC)-Gov. Nelson Rockefeller has vetoed a bill which called for the inclusion of church-related colleges and universities in New York State's $20 million program of aid to private institutions of higher learning. But at .the same time, Gov. Rockefeller stated once again he favors aid to church-related colleges.

Popul'at'mon P'roblems Due To Speed of Expansion


By Barbara Ward

At a recent convocation' at the University of Notre Dame, Mr. Robert MacNamara, President of the World Bank, devoted his address ,to the problem of the population explosion and warned his largely Catholic audience that population con t r 0 I on humanity's continuing would come - either by ground relative ignorance of the workstarvation or by vast and ing of human fertility and the violent civil strife or by a consequent need for much more humane and rational policy of family planning. Does this statement set the ' President of the 'largest international age n c y involved in development in direct con fl i c t with the teaching of Pope Paul VI? Do we see here a tragic gap, bet wee n the the Church with its longing to assist development an foster international institutions and the international community-which equally makes no secret of its desire for Christian and ecumenical support? No doubt, if the whole question of population policy is discussed in terms of one problem only-the methods of family regulation permissible to Catholics -the deadlock seems fairly complete. There is no question but that population policy will be at the very center of international development strategy in the Seventies. ' A very wide variety of methods of control - not excluding the "safe period" and rhythm method - will be proposed by governmental and private agencies and by international aidgiving bodies. It is easy to con路 -jure up a picture of perpetual friction between the Church in its own efforts for development and the secular institutions working in the same field.

Positive Reasons But this unfortunate outcome is not inevitabile. And the reasons are not negative reasonsfor instance, the fact that mil路 lions upon millions in Asia and Africa are not Christian and have therefore 'no part in the controversy about methods. The reasons are positive. First there is common ground on the fact of a population problem of a wholly new kind. Secondly, there is common ground' on the basic and essential values of family life-including its moral autonomy-and the degree to which they are under threat in the world today. ' Thirdly, there is ,common ground on the scale o{ development aid which will be needed if Asia, Africa and Latin America are to give all their families anything like a decent chance of food and work and shelter in the next decades. Fourthly, there is common

Occupy Cathedral CHICLAYO (NC)-To dramatize their conflict with the owner of a sugar plantation, about 100 Peruvian farm workers marched the 60 miles from the plantation to this city and then occupied its cathedral. The workers were protesting the firing by ,the Cayalti hacienda of 67 employees who had complained of ill treatment from supervisors.

scientific research. 'Let us look at these problems, beginning with the basic fact of population increase which is recognized in the opening sections of Humanae Vitae as being a grave new issue confronting the human race. The essence of the present crisis is not so much the scale of population growth out the speed of 'expansion. Economists who point out that the Earth can carry a much larger population and that continents' like Latin America and Africa are in some measure underpopulated, are' of course, correct. If every continent had the density of the Low Countries, billions more could, in theory, be housed and fed at least as well as the Belgians and the Dutch. But the Low Countries reached their pr:esent conditions over more than a century during which they built up their whole apparatus ,of industry, modern agriculture, power, transport, cities. When they'were accumulating the capital (or savings) necessary for this infrastructure of modern life, their population was growing by not much more than two 'per cent a year and the number of people moving out of traditional agriculture into the new towns and industry was under on per cent. Families Stabilized Under these conditions, an annual rate of economic growth which varied from three to five per cent a yeiu', left a steady balance, over and above consumption, for -investment in, houses, roads" 'electricity, factories, fertilizers and all the other needs of a technological and produc. tive society. And one of the chief reasons for this balarice was that; during the critical decades of the 19th Century, say, between 1800 and 1860, inventions and changes in industrialization went ahead of inventions and cha'nges in public health~ By the' time the death rate began to plunge downwards -from over 40 per thousand 'to 15 per thousand-urban life and the end of the farmers' need for a large working, family, had already begun to stabilize family _ size. In the developing world today, the situation is reversed. Public health, the control of epidemics, have arrived ahead of industry and modern farming. Before agricultural productivity nas been decisively increased, before the installations of modern urban and industrial life are in' place, the death rate has started its plummeting downward course. The last four decades in Latin America, the birthrate has stayed about stable-at 40 to 45 births per路 thousand of inhabitants. But' the death rate has fallen from above 30 to about 15.. . This change - of death rates "modernized" ahead of birth rates -'- has two consequences which will 'be ,examined next week.

of Men's Superiors. To Discuss Freedom, Dissent WASHINGTON (NC) - "Freedoms in the Church" will be the theme of the 12th annual meeting of the Conference of Major Superiors of Men from June 23 to 27 at the University of Santa Clara, Calif. Provincials, abbots, and superiors general of the various orders and congregations of Religious men in the United States will meet to discuss freedom and dissent, one of the important issues affecting the Church and American .society today, it was announced at the conference headquarters here. The meeting will be limited to members of the Conference of Major Superiors of Men (CMSM), an organization of some 250 religious superiors,' representing 35,000 priests and Brothers of the United States. An invitation has been extended to the bishops of the United States. !For Greater Understanding Recent controversies, such as the dissent of the faculty of theology of the Catholic University of America; the burning of Selective Service records by groups including Catholic priests, Brothers and Sisters, and the expulsion of priests from Brazil, have all centered on the question of freedom and protest. The conference said watchwords are freedom of inquiry, academic freedom, freedom of protest and freedom to preach the Gospel in its social implications.

"Our hope is," said Father Gilbert J. Graham, O.P., CMSM president, "to come to a greater understanding of this principle of human freedom as it affects the lives of our religious men. "Our bro.ther priests," he continued, "participate fully in the civic and academic communities in which they live, and share the concerns of their secular colleagues for justice, for reform, for full development of the human personality. In addition, these priests or Brothers are members of voluntary societies -the Church and their own religious orders - which adds a new dimension to the problem of freedom as it affects them. Freest in Church "I am confident," Father Graham added, "that our discussions will help us appreciate that our Religious are, 9r should be, of all persons, the freest in the Church, to respond to the Spirit, in His urging that there be an end to war, poverty, and racial discrimination." Keynote speaker will be Father Augustine Paul Hennessy, 'c.P., editor of 'the Sign magazine, Union City, N. J. Discussant for the academic freedom area will be Father Augustine Rock, O.P., director of Blackfriars, Chicago. Directing discussions on political freedom aspects will be Father Walter L.

Cardinal Says Christians. in China Suffer Permanent Persecution

Heart of Joy Wide flush the fields; the softening air is balm; echo the moun· tains round; the forest smiles and every heart is joy. -Thomson.

WASHINGTON (NC)-A Chinese who is among the newest members of the College of Cardinals has characterized the Catholic Church on mainland China today as the "Church of tile Catacombs" and the "Church of Silence." Paul Cardinal Yu Pin, archbishop-in-exile of Nanking, China, said at a press conference at the National Press Club here that the juridical position of the Christian today in communistruled China is one of "permanent persecution." Religious persecution on the mainland, he added, is "universal." Cardinal Yu Pin, 67, who was elevated to the college of cardinals by Pope Paul VI at the April 30 consistory, is the second Chinese to be so honored.' The first was Thomas Cardinal Tien, S.V.D., of Peking, who died in exile on Taiwan in 1967. The cardinal, who stands six feet three inches, said a few churches on the mainland have been left open "for propaganda purposes," but the Chinese bish· ops and most of the Chinese clergy are under house arrest. By way of example, he cited Bishop Ignatius Kung of Shanghai who, he said, has been in jail since 1955. All foreign mlsslOnariesbishops and priests - have been expelled, with the exception of Maryknoll Bishop James E. Walsh, who is 'still under house

arrest in Shanghai after having refused to leave his people. Because of the religious per· secution, Cardinal Yu Pin said, many Chinese priests have had to abandon their public ministry and become farmers or industrial workers. Clandestinely, they are "still working very hard" for the preservation of the faith among the older Chinese people, he added. Since the "proletarian cultural revolution," which began in 1966, the cardinal said, there has been no more news of churches on the mainland. Ac· cording to. current estimates, there are some three million Catholics in China, he stated. The cardinal expressed con· cern for younger Christians on the mainland who, he said, are all enrolled in schools which are communist-directed and operated. Religious schools have long been abolished. Cardinal Yu Pin stated there is "full religious freedom" not only for all Christian denominations but for all religions, on the island of Taiwan where he now resides, and which has been the seat of the Chinese Nationalist government since the com· munist takeover of the mainland in 1949.

SANTIAGO (NC)-Raul Cardinal Silva Henriquez of Santi· ag~ admitted that close to 20 per cent of his See's priests have asked for laicization. In a televised press conference here, Cardinal Silva also praised "rebel" priests and said the Church in Latin America is working for social reform. He also admitted the existence of conflict in the Church. "I know indeed that within the Church there are opposing groups," he said. "Some use the spur on me so that I start trotting, while others pull the bridle so that I slow down. Thus my role is to coordinate both forces, often an unwelcome, difficult task. I get praise and reprobation from either group, and at times from both together. Yet I accept such a role witi' gratitude and an open heart. ~ I could not try to do less than Our Lord."

Students Tell House Committee Priest Cfheer'ed Demonstrators WASHINGTON. (NC) - Two Georgetown University students told the House Internal Security Committee here that a professor at the univ~rsity apparently cheered demonstrators who tried to disrupt a campus military event. The professor, Father Richard T. McSorley, S.J., was also said to have lent a movie projector to two members of the militant Students for Democratic Society (SDS) for showing a Black Panther film. Father McSorley is well known in the Washington area as a ,peace advocate and long-time critic of the war in Vietnam. He was later invited to meet with House Committee investigators about a possible appearance before the panel after charging that "the committee is not interested in the truth about the SDS." The priest was in the hearing room but left in the midst of testimony by students John T. Hoffman, a senior from Honolulu, and John C. Driscoll, a freshman from Norwich, Conn. The committee, formerly known as the House Committee on UnAmerican Activities, is investigating the role of the SDS in student unrest. Attempt Disruption Hoffman, an officer in the' Georgetown ROTC, said that during military day ceremonies on the campus in May, 1968, demonstrators ran through the ranks of cadets in an attempt to disrupt the event. "Father McSorley was standing on the sidelines," he said. "He seemed to be cheering them on. He was enthusiastic about the demonstration." Questioned by Rep. Louis Stokes of Ohio, Hoffman said he could not hear what the priest was saying. "He raised his arms and yelled as though to encourage them," Hoffman stated.

Rejects Relaxed Abortion BiUs

"He has never been very enthusiastic toward the military. I

assume that he was not cheering us."

Driscoll said Father McSorley lent SDS members a projector for showing in a freshman dormitory a film featuring Black Panthers Huey Newton and Eldridge Cleaver. "He sat in the room during the showing of the movie," Driscoll said. DriscolI said the purpose of showing the film, as he understood it, "was to acquaint us with the Black Panthers. They (SDS members) obviously felt that if we understood the Black Panthers we would be sympathetic toward them."


LANSING (NC)-The Michigan Senate has rejected efforts to calendar for debate two bills designed to relax the state's abortion laws.


The bills have been "on the table" since they were reported without recommendation by the Senate Committee of Health, Social Service and Retirement.

,;': l,

Authors of the bills, Sens. Gilbert' E. Bursley of Ann Arbor and John E. McCauley of Wyandotte, made unexpected motions to have the measures calendared for Senate consideration. Both motions were defeated with a minimum of debate.


Prelate Replies To Executive LOS ANGELES (NC)-Frank W. Castiglione, executive vicepresident of the Western Growers Association, has made public a letter received from Archbishop Joseph T. McGucken of San Francisco disavowing support for the boycott of California table grapes but declining to condemn grape growers. Castiglione said he had asked the archbishop to "personally visit the 700-mile grape producing area of our state," after reading news accounts of a press conference held by Archbishop McGucken in San Francisco in which he discussed the activist role of some priests in the grape boycott controversy. In his reply to Castiglione's invitation the archbishop wrote: "I am astonished by your reference to my 'vocal condemnation of California grape farmers.' I have never at any time condemned the grape farmers, or any other farmers. Neither have I ever supported the idea of the boycott. "I have indeed visited many ,of the farming areas and said Mass in the camps of farm workers. I have also every Winter had a lot to do with the charitable work with which the Church is burdened to take care of the victims of the problems of migrancy," Archbishop McGucken wrote.


The Bursley bill would authorize abortion if pregnancy threat-

ened the' mental or physical health of an expectant mother, where there was reason to believe the child would be born with a serious mental or physical handicap, and if the pregnancy resulted from rape or incest.

PREVOST HIGH: Among graduates from Prevost' High School, Fall River, are Alan White, Don Harrison, Tom Barnes, Edmond Tremblay. Gold cords they wear indicate tkey are graduating with high honors.

The McCauley bill would permit a woman to have an abortion for any reason, provided it was performed by a licensed physician in an accredited hospital. The presen~ law permits abortion only when the expec. tant mother's life is in danger.

For Cuban Children Miami Catholic Welfare Bureau Program In New Phase MIAMI (NC)-Almost 10 years and more than 14,000 children after it began, the Miami Catholic Welfare Bureau's program for Unaccompanied Cuban Children has a new phase-youngsters are arriving in the U. S. via Spain under waiver of a visa. According to Msgr. Bryan O. Wl!lsh, who inaugurated the program in 1960, "Until now these children had to either wait for a remote chance of being a lucky one on a direct U. S. airlift flight to Miami, or go to Spain and wait alone, perhaps without any money, for a visa to the United States." Msgr. Walsh said that through the efforts of Archbishop Coleman F. Carroll of Miami the U. S. Immigration Service arranged for a waiver of visa and now permits the young refugees to come to this country when sponsored by a relative who is already here. Draft Age As a group of Cuban exiles waited at Miami International Airport recently to meet the first children to arrive under the new procedure, they pointed out that young boys reaching the age of 14 in Cuba are forced to enrolI in the militia. The first of 13 boys and one girl deplaned from the New York to Miami airliner was embraced by his mother whom he had not seen for years. He and the others

each wore a y.ellow button, bearing the insignia and initials of the United States Catholic Conference, and a name tag. As Monsignor Walsh doublechecked his list of names to insure that each youngster was met by his sponsor, the one 16year-Old girl on the flight said that she and her 14-year-Qld brother had flown from Cuba to Spain after relatives sent them money. They were cared for by Franciscan priests and Sisters in Madrid until their departure for New York. Welcomed in Miami by an uncle, they had left both parents behind on the communist-controlled island.

PHILADELPHIA (NC)-A suit filed in U. S. District Court here attacked state aid to non public schools as an unconstitutional promotion of racial segregation. The suit, filed by six religious, civil rights and educational groups, asked the court to stop any . payments under' Pennsy.lvania's 1968 aid to nonpubhc schools law. The organization claimed that some non public schools are racially. segregated and that any state assistance to them fosters the practice of segregation.

He replaces Father Philip Jarmack, who recently resigned as associate secretary of the NCCC and from the post: of executive secretary of the United States Committee for the 1970 White

PHILADELPHIA (NC) - John Cardinal Wright of Pittsburgh lined up solidly on the side of today's much criticized "restless" younger generation. During a press conference the cardinal expressed belief there is little difference between the "kids of today and those of yesterday," except in his generation the communications media "gave us a chance to grow up in private."

House Conference. The White House Conference on Children and Youth has been held at approximately 10-year intervals since 1910. Accepting his post Msgr. Corcoran said: "The Church has traditionally placed heavy emphasis on child' development and youth formation. The White House Conferences reflect the close partnership between government and private sectors in addressing the problems of children and youth. "We hope that this 1970 conference will contribute to society's efforts to assist youth today, when they are in the grip of so many tensions," he declared. Msgr. Corcoran has been secretary of the NCCC since September, 1965. He served as assistant director and later as director of Catholic Charities for the Columbus, Ohio, diocese from 1947 to 1965. He has been active as a member of national and international groups deal-. ing with social, charitable and welfare problems.

Jim Feijo of Fall River turn in their athletic garb for graduation robes. Each has been a tower of strength on tile Springfield sports scene and are good reasons for the Chiefs' overal1 success in the field of athletics. Marsden, a former star athlete at Fairhaven High School, recently earned his third letter as . a member of the, Springfield varsity baseball team, while Feijo was a letterman in botll football and track. Both boys hope to go into the teaching-coaching profession next year. Marsden, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert E. Marsden, 135 Washington Street, is married to the former Linda Theodore of New Bedford and is the father of an infant son. The two were married last year at Holy Name Church in New Bedford and are presently residing in Springfield. While at Fairhaven, John was a member of the Blue Devil basketball and baseball squads winning letter three and four respectively. Had Cousy Scholarship As a junior in 1964, Marsden was the recipient of the annual Bob Cousy Rotary Club scholarship and along with Dartmouth standout athlete, Mark Devitt, was awarded a 10-day membership to the former pro basketball star's Summer camp. During the baseball season, Marsden was awarded a berth on several all-star teams when he led Fairhaven to a second place finish in the tough Bristol County League. . The highlight of that season came during the final week when John' spun successive shutouts against Bi~hopStang (4-0) and Taunton (1-0) to assure the Devils of second place. Following the high school campaign, the big right-hander pitched for Fairhaven's Post 166 in the American Legion League. Feijo is a 5-11, 210-pound former Durfee High athlete who overcame a serious knee injury In his sophomore year to become an outstanding liii'~man on the Chiefs' football squad. The only son of Mr. and Mrs. James Feijo of 413 Manchester I Street, Jim has a sister Naomi












and is a member of Our Lady of Health Parish. Won Trevisano Award While being limited somewhat due to the gimpy knee, Jim played every offensive line position and was dubbed a "most valuable player" by Coach Ted Dunn.. While at Durfee he won berths on several AU-Bristol County League teams for his prowess in the grid sport and enjoyed his finest year as a senior when he led the Don Montie-coached HiIltoppers to an unbeaten, untied season and was chosen winner of the Donald Trevisano Memorial Award as the team's most valuable lineman. Both have been outstanding, hard-working individuals both on the athletic field and in the

Co·Discoverer of Insulin Seeks More Knowledge of Diabetes TORONTO (NC)-The co-discoverer of insulin, still active in the medical field almost half a century after his discovery, would "like to discover a lot of things connected with diabetes." Dr. Charles H. Best, who was 22 years 'old when he and Frederick Banting discovered insulin here, said 'in an interview that "oral insulin would be an excellent thing if one could do it. "And now that we are playing a'round with genes so much," he added, "it might be possible to do something so that people wouldn't inherit diabetes." , Asked, to explain why diai?etes is spreading today, particularly' in the more developed countries, Best said he thinks it is because "all the children who used to die are now 'living and having chilo' dren of their own." Dr. Best, a Presbyterian, was asked how a member, of his church gets into the Pontifical Academy of Sciences. "I don't think 1 ever knew

who put up my name," he said. "I imagine it was Alexander Fleming, the discoverer of penicillin. As a matter of fact, I took the place that was vacated by his death. The number of people who get in is determined by the number who pass out of the pi«ture. "We are supposed to go to Rome every two years and spend two weeks," he explained. "The debates are purely scientific and a great tome comes out which travels all over the world. People are really anxious to belong to the academy." Pioneered Plasma After discovering insulin in 1921, Dr. Best headed the medical team in 1939 that pioneered blood plasma, which saved countless lives during and since World War II. He was the first blood donor for the cause. Has everything else seemed anti-climatic? "It hasn't seemed like that to me at all," Dr. Best said. "Even today 1 nourish the idea that some thought might well come . to me that is just as important as anything else 1 have ever done. 1 think that will go on as long as 1 live." He pointed out that much progress is being made' 'so diabetes victims may some day take insulin in an oral form. "We know the structure of the insulin molecule now. and may be able to get rid of parts of it," he said. "If we 'can get it down small enough so that it could be absorbed (through the stomach wall into the blood stream) we would have oral insulin. "People talk about oral insulin now but they mean the pills which (stimulate the pancreas) liberate insulin," Dr. Best explained. "There is no oral insulin at the moment, but the possibility of there being one, 1 think, is fairly good-not in the immediate future, but sometime."
