Latin America Asks If Catholics Care On the last weekend of June. the faithful of the Fall· River Diocese are asked to contribute to' the immense pastoral work of caring for the millions in Latin America who are in such great need of programs of social _. and religious endeavor. More and more concern is being evidenced for this area of the Third World but in the power struggle between the great nations of the world the peoples of Latin America could feel that they have been forgotten. The President of Mexico just a week ago reminded the United States Congress that the United States Government would do well to treat its friends with as much consideration as it gives its stated enemies.

Fire Chaplains Lead Mourning At Boston Rites Two Fire Department Chaplains in -the Fall River Diocese accompanied large delegations of firefighters to Boston today to participate in memorial services for nine Boston firemen killed during a fire at the Vendome Hotel on Saturday, June 17. Rev. John R. FoIster, Chaplain of the Fall River Fire Department. and Rev. Thomas O'Dea, Chaplain of the New Bedford Fire Department, joined more than 10,000 chaplains, officials and firefighters at the ·funeral Mass at Holy Cross Cathedral in Boston. Most Rev. Humberto S. Medeiros, Archbishop of Boston, presided at the concelebrated funeral Mass and preached the homily. The tragic loss, suffered on the eve of Father's Day. only emphasized the tremendous pressure and risk of firefighters who daily and in less spectacular scenes risk their lives for the protection and safety of citizens in desperate and critical need. Nine firefighters lost their lives when a section of the unoccupied Vendome Hotel gave way after a fire in the structure was out and the firemen were cleaning up and extinguishing smaller blazes within the 101 year-old building.

The Latin America Collection is an opportunity for the people of the Diocese to show their concern for their Latin American brothers in the Faith. It is an action that is strictly religious in character and without the political overtones that so often are suspected - justifiably or not-when a government aid program is introduced. Vast numbers of the people of Latin America are in need of a deeper understanding of the Catholic Faith and need to see the Fruit of the Faith in othersconcern for those in need. It has been pointed out again and again that unless there is a bloodless revolution in Latin America resulting in social and economic programs to upgrade the lives of people there, then there will be a bloody revolution that will tear apart the fabric of the continent and set back the cause of Christianity for untold decades. Christianity promises that people care: It must redeem that promise or suffer the terrible chasm between what is preached and what is seen to be done.

The farsighted and courageous of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops, in the name leadership given the Church by of the devoted Catholics of the United States extended heartfelt congratulations to Pope Paul VI on the occasion of his ninth Anniversary as Sovereign Pontiff.

Los Angeles Honors Dighton Native Mrs. Elaine Perry Liming, wife of Frank X. Liming and daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Perry, 2031 Smith Street, Dighton and members of St. Peter's Parish, has been awarded the Pope Pius X Award for her eight years of service in the work of the Confraternity of Christian· Doctrine in California. Mrs. Liming, a graduate of Dighton High School, received her B.S. in Education from Bridgewater State College in . 1962. She has taught elementary education for several years in the public schools in California. Much of her free time, however, 'has been given to C.C.D. She has worked for St. John's C.C.D. in Baldwin Park; St. Joseph's C.C.D., Placentia; and most recently St. Martin de Porres' C.C.D. and Yorba Linda, all in California. During her eight years of C.C.D. work, Mrs. Liming has held various positions and for the past two years has been President and .Founder of the Confrater'nity of Christian Doctrine at St. Martin's, a new parish in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.

Your Holiness has been most heartening. Among the many achievements recorded during your pontificate are the successful completion of the historic Second Vatican Ecumenical Council and the amazing dimensions of the implementation of the conciliar decisions and recommendations. Noteworthy especially is the progress made through Episcopal Synods to actualize the collegial responsibility of the Bishops for the universal Church. Through the Synods Your Holiness has di-' rect access to the pastoral experience, the problems, the needs and the views of the Bishops of the world. Your Holiness' inspiring leadership in the cause of world peace, reflected in the World Day of Prayer for Peace with its ever increasing impact, your personal pleas for peace in particlar areas and in the world to bring Christ's message of peace and reconciliation to all men bear eloquent witness to your unceasing concern as Shepherd of the Universal Church. There are reasons to hope and to be'lieve that these efforts in behalf of peace are directing the attention and efforts of world leaders towards the pursuit of peace. Turn to Page Two

This past year, with Rev. William McLean, she' taught an Elementary Teacher Training Course for the C.C.D. Office of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. She gave workshops throughout the Archdiocese on the importance of the use of the media in Christian education.

She was one of several local speakers to give workshops in Audio Visual Helps for the C.C.D. Teachers in the area at the 'Archdiocesan C.C.D. Congress held in Anaheim this Spring. When asked about her commitment to C.C.D. Mrs. Liming responded by thankjng her parents for a good Catholic home and for the good foundation in the Faith from her first C.C.D. instructor, Rev. Msgr. William Dolan of Taunton. Monsignor Dolan, retired pastor of Holy Family Parish, East Taunton and now residing in St. Mary's Rectory, Taunton. was pastor at St. Peter's, Dighton from 1939 to 1948. She also stated that the art of teaching is a gift from God and to thank Him for this gift, she chose to use it to spread the Good News of Salvation in Him.


Her husband Frank, also taught C.C.D. classes. He is from Brookline. Mass. and a graduate of Boston College High School and attended Boston College.

(to which Fall River belonged until the creation of the separate Fall River Diocese in 1904), appointed Rev. Francis A. Quinn in 1872 to shepherd the first parish cut off from old St. Mary's Parish, and thus began the famed Sacred H-eart Parish. The Centp.nnial observance will include Mass for deceased priests who served the Parish, Mass for all deceased Sisters, and a reception for Sisters, Mass for deceased :;Jarishioners, and special services and reception for senior citizens. There will also be special events for young adults. The Parish Banquet is sched-" uled for Oct. 15 at Venus de Milo Restaurant.

THE ANCHORThurs., June 22, 1972

To Install New Bronze Door At Basilica VATICAN CITY (NC)-A new bronze door, called the "Door of Prayer", is being installed at one of the entrances of St. Peter's Basilica. The door. the first to be added since the "Door of Death" sculptured by the famous Itr;lian art· ist Giacomo Manzu was hung in 1965, is the work of another Italian sculptol', Lello Scorselli. The two-panel bronze door will replace a wooden door at the far left end of the basilica, which used to be known as the Door of St. Martha. This entrance is used during major ceremonies by cardinals, members of the diplomatic corps accredited to the Vatican and other important visitors to reach reserved seats near the main altar. Pope Paul will preside at the installation June 28. during the annual ceremonies in St. Peter's on the vigil of the Feast of SS. Peter and Paul. The door is a gift of the Office of the Basilica of St. Peter's-the organization charged with the housekeeping and maintenance of the immense church. The gift marks Pope Paul's 50th anniversary in the priesthood. He was ordained May 26, 1920. The door is decorated with ~odern representations illustrating four of the Church's prayers: the Our Father, the Benedictus (the Canticle of Zachary), the Magnificat (the prayer of Our Lady), and the Nunc Dimittis (the prayer of Simeon)-all of which appear in St. J,.uke's Gospel. On the, center of the door are three lines of a prayer written by Pope Paul and a reproduction of his coat-of-arms.

Ethnic Studies Bill Passes Congress WASHINGTON (NC) - The House of Representatives has given final approval to a bill to further the culture and tradition of various ethnic and minority groups in America. ,. The new Ethnic Heritage Studies Programs Act authorizes the Commissioner of Education to make grants for programs and development of curriculum materials. Sen. Richard S. Schweiker (R. Pa.) is author of the bill which, he said, "is designed to encourage the maximum coordination, cooperation and participation" among the various ethnic groups. "Hopefully," he said, ~"the resulting ethnic identity and mutual understanding can lead to great communication and cooperation in all our communities."

Magazine Names Managing Editor ST. PAUL (NC)-Henry Lexau, on the staff of the Catholic Digest for 23 years, has been named managing editor of the magazine. Lexau joined the Catholic Digest editorial staff in 1949 after he was graduated from the College of St. Thomas in St. Paul, which now owns the monthly magazine. Catholic Digest has .a paid circulation of more than 530,000 and an estimated readership of more than 1.5 million.


Tomb Festival Honors Dead VANCOUVER (NC)-Chinese Catholics of the Vancouver area observed their annual spring Tomb Festival June 4 at the Gardens of Gethsemani cemetery of the Vancouver archdiocese. The Mass, 'Sermon, hymns, and prayers were in Chinese. The Tomb Festival is a Christian modification of an ancient and sacred Chinese observance that pays homage to the memory of ancestors, as the participants remeniber the departed spirits of their loved ones and offer sacrifices to' their memories. In their tomb festivals, the Chinese go to the graveyards of their ancestors, clean the graves, and, following prayers and a ceremony of dedication, have their meal, picnic style, in the presence of their ancestors and the dead. 'Ibe ceremony demonstrates the beilef that the souls of the dead" still live. Catholic Chinese include traditional Catholic prayers for the dead, spiritual offerings, the celebration of Mass for the souls of ancestors and friends, and the rededication of the individual to his Christian commitment. Flowers, specially baked cakes and barbecued pigs were among the gifts presented in the Offertory procession at the Mass here, and these were later shared at a community meal.

'I.... BISHOP AT ATTLEBORO SERRA: PrinCipals at the annual Bishop's Night conducted by the Attleboro Serra Club were right to left: Bishop Cronin, the honored guest; outgoing Serra president Edward' G. Lambert and Mrs. Lambert; Very Rev. Thomas J. Harington, Diocesan Chancellor.

PJan to Reorganize Catholic Conference WASHINGTON (NC)-Bishop Joseph L. Bernardin has announced steps implementing the decision of the country's Catholic bishops to reorganize and streamline the United States Catholic Conference. The steps were included in the USCC reorganization plan approved by the bishops at their April 11-13 general meeting in Atlanta. Bishop Bernardin, USCC general secretary, said the steps include: Appointment of four new secretaries - for education, social development and world peace, planning, and research-as staff members of the office of the general secretary.

Merger of \ the Division of Adult Education into the Division for Religoius EducationConfraternity. of Christian Doctrine. . Final phasing out of the Division for United Nations Affairs, in accordance with a decision made in 1971.

diocesan allocations. This will be nearly $1 million less than in 1972. Bishop Bernardin also outlined the following personnel changes involved in the reorganization:

Holy Land Center Opened in England LONDON (NC)-A Franciscanrun center devoted to study of the Holy Land was dedicated here by Cardinal John Heenan of Westminster. The Franciscans have had a close relationship with the Holy Land ever since St. Francis of Assisi first went there nearly seven centuries ago. As official guardians'of Catholic interests in the shrines of Christendom there, the Franciscans have preserved, restored and beautified many of the Holy Places. The London center, headed by Franciscan Father Andrew Cloonan, has been set up to spread knowledge of the country where Christ lived and ministered on earth and where the Christian religion began. "The center will enable as many as possible to be acquaint- ' ed with the Holy Land without actually visiting it," said Father Cloonan, "though one hastens to add that for those contemplating a trip, the center should prove an invaluable aid."

Happiness To be without some of the things you want is an indispensable part of hilPpiness. -Russell

Father Olin Murdick has been named secretary of education. He had been director of the USCC Department of Education since March. Msgr. George G. Higgins has been named secretary for research. He had been director of the Division for Urban Affairs since 1968. Msgr. Harold Murray has been seretary for social development and world peace.

Nun Says Westernization Causes T'rClluble for Asians SYDNEY (NC)-Western civilization is bringing more troubles with it than Asian countries bargained for, according to an Indonesian nun-dentist. "Our dietary patterns .are changing as we become more Westernized, and Clur public health 'systems are not ready," Sister' Kien Be said here. "If .we don't improve our dental facilities and education, Indonesia will be in as bad a position as Australia, where ·the decay rate is reaching an aU-time high." The 'problem is magnified in Indonesia-where there is only one dentist,.to every 12:0,000 people" cOJ11pared to Australia's ratio of ?ne to 2,500. Sister Kien, a qualified dentist, has received an additional diploma in public health dentistry, with an emphasi:;; on preventive dentistry. She will return to Indonesia in April and will teach at the University of Padjadjaran at Bandung. She said she hopes to inspire

the dental students to a concern in public health. "I am going to teach them dental health education in the hope they implement it at the chairside and also at the public health 'level." She is now planning a dental clinic that has experiented .some growing' pains because of a lack of finances. The 'clinic will be concerned primarily with preventive care in ohildren, although it will also be open to adults. Australian Catholic Relief will give $3,000 for equipment, about a quarter of the estimated cost. '''1 might be able to make ends meet by using simple equipment," Sister Kien said. "Modern dentistry involves elaborate equipment but I think we can do a very adequate job with simplified versions."

Pope Stresses Call to Sanctity

WASHINGTON (NC)-A fourday meeting here June 19-22 is being viewed as the first step toward developing a workable pastoral plan for the Spanish, speaking apostolate. The long and short range goals' of the Catholic Church in regard to the Spanish-speaking community will be discussed at "Encuentro Hispano de Pastoral," planned by the Division for the Spanish-speaking of the U. S. Catholic Conference (USCC). Cardinal John Krol, president of the USCC and the National Conference of Catholic Bishops, and Bishop Joseph L. Bernardin, USCC general secretary, will ad'~..~ dress the meeting. Two other addresses will be made by Bishop Raul Sembrano of Facatativa, Colombia, and Auxiliary Bishop Patrick Flores . of San Antonio, Tex. . 1 Members of the hierarchy, diocesan representatives, and leaders of Spanish-speaking com. munities in the United States have been invited to participate. The Division for the SpanishI speaking has prepared statistical SPECIAL BLESSING AT NEW BEDFORD CHAPEL: breakdowns of the number and Rev. Regis Galvin, OFM., and Rev.

VATICAN CITY (NC) - The Christian surrendering his own freedom to answer God's call to sainthood is the "Christian paradox," Pope Paul VI told thousands of visitors at a general audience here. Stating that the Christian is cailed by God to heroism and sacrifice in suppressing his own freedom, the Pope added: "Behold, here is the Christian paradox: Our freedom is called to perfection and to love. "The encounter of loving and saving will of God with the obedient and happy will of Oui hJman heart is perfection, is sanctity."

Never The -Same No one is happy-or should be-when any person go~s . to jail. Human compassion' demands that' the culprit, be viewed kindly an.d with every aid fQr rehabilitation. There are sometimes lessons to be learned from this misfortune that happeJ:').5 to another. The present instance , of the Irvings-:-of Howard Hughes book hoax notorietyis a case in question. hving and his wife have both been sentenced to jailmercifully on a staggered basis, so that one parent could be with their young sons. But the reaction of Mrs. Irving is a sad one, since she has deplored -the jail sentence, understandably, and has asked that the whole family be allowed to go home "and everything will be all right again." . This is the sad lesson to be gained from the case-that things are never "all ,right again" when there has been any 'deviation from the standards of right. Actions have 'conse. quences, and when thelre has been a tangled web of deceit and fraud and money.taken under false pretenses and per: jured statements then these act~ do affect not only the lives of the people involved but the credibility of the pub-lic. The fabric of confidence is severly weakened. One cannot 'merely say "I am sorry" when caught and then business as usual. The individuals involved in the fraud are twisted in their lives and values, and this affects them and those close to them since innocent youngsters also become .victims. Society is .pushed one bit further down the 'road of cynicism.-The printed word is made a tool of deceit rather than of trutn. AnQ even when there is full sorrow and remorse there must be a turn-about by the culprits and a rebuilding of lost reputations and veracity. No, things are never the same again.

Relief Services Stress Plight Of Burundi NEW YORK (NC)-The plight of the African nation of Burun~i is even worse than that of Biafra where a 30-month civil war left thousands homeless or dead of starvation, according to Catholic Relief Services here. . "Biafra, Bangladesh, now Burundil" said a June 13 full-page ad in the New York Times. . "Help us help those who flee!" CRS, overseas aid agency of U. S. Catholics, said it would soon be sending to Burundi critically needed supplies," including clothing, medicine, 10,000 blankets and 54,000 pounds of baby food. "Frankly, our problem is that we are' running out of the money w~ need to be able to qontinue to help," the ad said. Noting that it conducts aid programs in 70 countries around the world, CRS said it is "perhaps best known for our work during times of emergencies 'and disasters, particularly wars." VVave of Bloodshed "We aided innocent victims on both sides of the Nigerian civil war; we have been actively involved in Bangladesh helping . millions to rebuild their homes and villages .. )' the ad noted. Now in Burundi, the ad continued, "more than 100,000 men, women and children have been cruelly killed' during the past months because of ancient conflicts and rivalries, and thousands more have fled for their lives into the bush to escape the same fate." The recent wave of bloodshed in Burundi began in April after a revolt among the majority Hutu tribe against the traditional ruling tribe, the Tutsis. Tne CRS ad quoted an eyewitness in Burundi, who described the situation there as "worse than even the darkest days of Biafra." "We ask a helping hard," the ad said, "so that we can extend one in your name, to th se who need it so much."

Attack Plan to ive 'Safe Sex' Advic ,I I

LONDON (NC)-Cathol cs here have attacked a project of the Family Planning Associ ion to give widespread "safe s x" advice to English teen-agers. Under the FPA plan, trained volunteers will visit teen hang-. outs to encourage youngsters to use contraceptives. The volunteers will go to pubs, coffee bars, clubs and young peoples' neighborhOOd centers to talk about birth control. Scheduled to start in July, the FPA project aitnsto offer sex education to sexually active but unaware teen-agers. "I't's monstrous," said Father George Leonard of the Clltholic Information Office. It's another example of encouraging promiscuity, of separating love and sex. This thing could also promote VD." Catholics in Islington, the London borough where the FPA project will be launched initially, , view the scheme with the "utmost dismay." according to a statement from the Catholic Deanery Council of Islington. "It would be teaching the young to lust rather than to love,"

Six Den minations Want Religion Major S bje~t. in Public Schools TORONTO (NC An ecumenical comm'ission r presenting six major Christian denominations in Ontario provinc called for the recognition of r ligion as "a major academic ubject in its own right" in the rovince's public school system. The commission,' said it wants a course in the study of religion to ."be taught by professional teachers who have majored in religion at university levels." The Ecumenical Study Commission on Religion in Public Schools, composed of Protestant, Anglican and Catholic educators, made these comments in a reaction to the Keiller Mackay Report on religion in public schools. The ecumenical commission has been studying the Mackay Report for several months. The Ontario provincial government has not yet implemented the report. This report does not deal with separate (Catholic) schools, which receive Ontario government grants up to grade 10. The Mackay Report, completed in 1969, generally placed its seal of approval on the elimination of religion from public schools. It urged Ontario "not to continue to be one of the few non-

sectarian school systems in North America which provides for religious instruction within school hours by the classroom teachers; we have an obligation to join the mainstream." 'Rightful Place' Even in its positive recommendations, the Mackay Report relegated religion to the realm of "incidental teaching and study," or optional courses, in senior high school grades taught by members of the history department. The Ecumenical Study Commission said its "feels strongly that religion has a rightful place in school, as it does in the home and in the church, recognizing at the same time the care with whieh the necessary safeguards have to be made." , . Although the ESC did not pretend to have' any ready-made programs for religion in schools, it asserted that "religion is a subject worthy of academic study in its own right, and should not be treated as just an adjunct of the departments of history and English literature." It expressed confidence in the ability of the Deparment of Education to devise such a program.

open ourselves to all types of aggression." He reminded the crowd of worshippers that Catholics have a special interest in supporting President Nixon's Vietnam war policy. "We should not forget the fact that 100,000 peoplemost of them Catholics - were massacred, slaughtered in North Vietnam," he 路said. "We Catholics certainly have a stake with the hundreds of thousands of our fellow Catholics in South Vietnam today."

A spokesman for tlJe Theo ogkal Seminary here described the recent three-day retreat as "mutual discussion and dialogue" and the "first time" the predominantly Presbyterian seminary had gathered area priests and ministers for a retreat. Archbishop Sheen, 77, told NC News he has been giving "two to three retreats per month," since retiring in 1969 as Bishop of Rochester, N. Y. The prelet? also noted he had lectured "at 40 secular universities in the last year."

Church. The Church is passing through a "difficult period" in its history, the cardinal said. Among the many reasons for. this, he continued, is "the harmful attitude of some priests and religious who have forgotten the freely taken and demanding promises they made on their day of ordination or profession." These attitudes, the cardinal asserted scandalize the faithful because they "subvert the structures of the Church."

Shortage in Church Personn'el Expected TAIPEI (NC) Decreasing Church personnel in the years ahead was one of the problems discussed at a two-day meeting of bishops, Religious superiors and laymen here. Actually, the number of priests in Taiwan has continued to increase slightly each year, though that of Sisters has diminished. Bishops and Religious superiors, however, are worried that signs point to an all-round reduction in the next 10 years that could seriously affect their ability to fulfill commitments. The projection is b sed on the expectation that fe er foreign missionaries will arri e because of the general fall-off in priestly vocations and the robability that vocations in 1 cal seminarieswill not be s ficient to make up the deficit. Priests listed in the olic Directory here n mber 917, of whom 376 are C inese and 441 foreign. In the 1970 directory there were 364 Chinese and 445 foreign priests listed for a total of 809. SHAME

The Red Cross established headquarter:; in the cathedral school of Our Lady' of Perpetual Help and set up sub-stations at St. John's and' Blessed' Sacrament parishes in the Rapid City diocese. The latter sub-station is situated in the heart of the afflicted area.. Though Blessed Blessed Sacrament parish suffered little damage to the buildings, . fatalities in, the surrounding neighb'orhood were high. Jesuit Father Francis J.

VATICAN CITY (NC) A Vatican Radio commentator warned that critics and reformers of the Church who go so far as to spurn its hierarchical authority run the risk of heresy. The commentary was a followup to Pope Paul's remarks at his general audience the day before, in which he said some Catholic publications seem to be absorbed ' in searching out the Church's defects and publicizing them, forgetting that the Church was founded by Christ to save men. The Vatican Radio commentator warmly endorsed the fact that Catholics are looking more closely than ever at their Church, saying: "Today the people of God are ever more aware that love of the Church; attachment and loyalty to' it, cannot and must not, be blind love, or an unaware attachment, or irresponsible loyalty. One does not truly love the Church if he willingly closes his eyes to its defects, if he is not concerned with what needs to be reformed in the Church or with what is a cause for scandal." ' The commentator warned, however, that the critical approach can become distorted when it centers only on itself, "when it identifies loyalty solely with criticism, when it expresses love solely by denunciations and 'when attachment comes to mean only protest and defamation. "Then there is no longer room for understanding, patience, trust and hope. And above all there is no longer room for a higher authority to which by di~ine mandate there has been res~ed final judgment."

Cooperation Between. Nonpublic; , Public School Cited WASHINGTON (NC) - Large numbers of nonpublic school children are being deprived ·of some of the educational services provided for them in a federal education law, a government publication said here. Title' (section) One of the 1965 Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA provides $1.6 billion for programs for educationally disadvantaged children, says the June issue of American Education, published by theU. S. Office of Education (USOE). Although some nonpublic school children are legally entitled to participate in these and other programs included in the law, the magazine noted, "more often than not certain roadblocks appear." "The that substantial numbers of nonpublic school children who could and should be receiving Title One assistance are being deprived of it," it continues. The magazine theorizes why nonpublic students have been excluded in some cases. But the bulk of the article in a case oonpublic schools has workedthe city of Pittsburgh. Bridges Gap The .chief barrier toward including nonpublic school students in the federally-funded programs "seems to consist" of an absence of simple cooperation, coordination, and even conversation between the public and nonpublic school systems,:' the magazine says. But not everywhere," it con-, tinues, noting that educational policies in Pittsburgh "would seem to carry a significant message to public and nonpublic educators everywhere." About a third of the 101,000 school-age children in Pittsburgh attend Catholic schools. "On the basis of sheer size alone the parochial school system would seem of necessity to loom large in the consciousness of the city'~ public school administrators,." the magazine notes. "But of equal impact is a spirit of cooperation that by now has taken on the stability of a tradition and in the process has bridged the gap between the two systems." This spirit of cooperation, the magazine says, began in 1917 when a home economics teacher in the Pittsburgh public school system asked the Pittsburgh diocese whether Catholic school students would like to participale in her program. Based on Trust Today, according to the magazine, "public and parochial schools are engaged in some 28 shared-time programs and activities."

Major assistance for the programs comes from ESEA, especially Title One funds, the magazine says. "Of the 32,000 youngsters eligible for Title One assistance in the two systems, about 30,500 are in fact being served." ,. . Other instances of cooperation - range from "modest acts of kindness and consideration to actions requiring significant administrative rearrangements," the magazine notes. It quotes a member of the Pittsburgh Board of Public Education to describe' why public-. nonpupblic cooperation has become a reality there. Relationships between the parochial and public schools 'are as good as they are."said Dr. LeRoy Patrick, "primarily because they are based on mutual trust." Louis J. Kishkunas, public school superintendent added that "if anything happens to the parochial school system, we're in trouble."

, WASHINGTON (NC)-,Stating that, "the need is real and is urgent,"- the National' Catholic Educational Association, has urged the Democratic party' to endorse "meaningful gOVE!rnmental assistance to nonpublic education." Father C. Albert Koob, NCEA president, said in a sta\tement , submitted to the party's platform - committee here that the 'endorsement should be made "in the forceful language unencumbered by reservations." The NCEA president's written testimony is part of the data being collected by the committee which will draft the Democratic party's platform-policies it will stand for in the NovembE'r election. Others who have urged a nonpublic school aid plank in the platform include Auxiliary Bishop William E. McManus of Chicago chairman of the U. S. Catholic Conference education committee. Equitable Solution "The right of private educational institutions to exi:;t and the right of their students to benefit from certain public assistance has been constitutionally recognized and are constitutionally protected;" Father Koob said. ' , A state aid program with "a seCUlar legislative purpose and a primary effect that neither advances nor inhibits religion" is open to qualified students in both public and" non public schools, he noted. The NCEA president said proponents of church-related schools "confidently anticipate public recognition of the contril1>ution of those schools; a sympSlthetic hearing for their problem:;, and uninhibited cooperation in developing an equitable solution to the fiscal difficulties of aU education."

I Tax Proposals Expected to Hurt British Churches LONDON (NC)-The Catholic Church of Britain faces extra taxation estimated at' about $800,000 annually under new fiscal proposals now going through Parliament for introduction next year. This is expected to cost the average parish an additional $350 a year. A new "Value Added Tax" (VAT) would put a 10 per cent additional charge on the building of churches, rectories, and parish halls as well as on their repair and new furniture and architects' and surveyors' fees. The Anglican Church s~ys VAT will cost it at least $2.6 million annually. In all, the British treasury is likely to take in some $4 million extra a year in 'taxes from the major British churches. All other charities-for many fiscal and other legal purposes the churches are listed as charities-will be similarly" hit. The churches have appealed jointly to the government, though so far without success. 100,000 Charities

More support from Jesuit col'leagues strengthened the possibility of ordination. In 1970 his superiors talked. to Father Arrupe again. This time the Society itself saw no problem. But ordination would be predicated upon a Vatican dispensation. Th d' 't' d e Ispensa Ion came an this June he was ordained. As a priest now, what will he be doing?

WASHINGTON (NC) - The chairman of the U. S. bishops' committee on farm labor has asked members of the Senate to support a bill designed to improve the wages of farm workers. In a letter to all senators, Bishop Joseph F. Donnelly asked that a Senate version of the bill, rather than a House version, be approved. The House of Representatives, Bishop Donnelly said, had re: placed the original bill with one which "failed to broaden the minimum wage coverage of farm workers' and continued the present discriminatory treatment in 'respect to the wage level." The bishop said his committee supported Senate bill 1861 because it would "extend and improve the minimum wage" of farm workers. The bill would: Increase the number of farm workers covered by the minimum wage from the current 425,000 to an estimated 500,000 to 575,000. Raise farm workers minimum wage fro'm the current $1.30 an hour to $2.20 an hour over the next four years. The bill would also raise the minimum wage for non-farm workers from the current $1.60 and by 1975 the minimum for both groups would be $2.20. The House version of the bill simply raises the farm minimum wage to $1.70 an hour and the • minimum for other workers to $2 an hour. In addition to keeping farm workers' wages lower than others; the House version would limit the number of persons eligible for the minimum wage. The Senate version extended eligibility for the minimum wage to workers on smaller farms. The House version maintains the eligiblity requirements of the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1968.

Catholic Association Discontinues Support of Education Week



but, as he frankly admitted, really didn't know what to make of him. At the end of our conversation , unwittingly anticipating what the Washington Post would say the following morning in its obituary notice, we concluded that Saul was such a complicated human being that it would probably be impossible for even his closest friends and associates to say with any degree of certainty what really made him tick. As a matter of fact, the Washington Post went us one better in this regard, pointing out that Alinsky himself "frankly admitted to a split personality. A vociferous and demanding radical in public, he was a quiet and charming conversationalist in private. He also confessed to sometimes being less sure of his righteousness than he sounded." Split Personality That rings a bell with the present writer and brings back many happy memories of the Alinsky whom I knew fairly well, but saw much too infrequently, over a period of some 20 years. To say that he was a combination of Jekyll and Hyde would be grossly unfair to his memory, for that would seem to suggest that he was consciously and deliberately playing contradictory roles. But to say, in his own words, as quoted by the Post, that he had a kind of split personality strikes me as being a fair assessment of the man. Saul's friends and admirersand their name is legion-knew how to interpret his contradictory moods and learned to make allowances for his tough-guy, radical rhetoric and his almost adolescent taste for profanity which, as the years went on, unfortunately became one of his better known trademarks. They knew that underneath it all he was a compassionate and rather sentimental human being whose bark was much worse than his bite and when the chips were down, wasn't nearly as cocky nor as self-assured as he frequently pretended to be. On the other hand, Alinsky's enemies-and their name is also legion-almost invariably failed to take the true measure of the man. They interpreted his radical rhetoric much too simplistically and, as a result, persuaded themselves (or simply pretended, for

Alinsky himself put it this way: "Today revolution has become synonymous with communism while capitalism is synonymous with status quo ... We have permitted a suicidal situation to unfold wherein revolution and communism have become one. These pages are committed to splitting this political atom, separating this exclusive identification of communism with revolution. If it were possible for the Have-Nots of the world to recognize and accept the idea that revolution did not inevitably mean hate and war, cold or hot. from the United States, that alone. would be a great revolution in world politics and the future of man. This is a major reason for my attempt to provide a revolutionary handbook not cast in a communist or capitalist mold ..." Pragmatist As indicated above, Alinsky was the least ideological 9f men, He was a foelf-styled pragmatigt -but a pragmatist with a heart and with a m)lch deeper commitment to the Judaeo-Christian ethic, and a much deeper yearning for spiritual values than some of his more brassy and more \ aggressive rhetoric might have suggested. His particular form of pragma-. tism had much to recommend it, but, by the same token, it left much to be desired as a philosophical rationale for radical social reform It is this writer's impression that some of Alinsky's disciples are too ,readily inclined to wink at this aberration and to say that Saul was basically an activist and that his writings were never meant to be taken all that seriously. I think they are making a wrong路headed mistake in. this regard and are not being fair to Alinsky. In my book, he was a great human 'being and an effective social reformer: but, while he never took himself too seriously in life and managed, most of the time, to retain his sense of humor, he did take his writings seriously and, unless I am badly mistaken, wouldn't want them to be lightly dismissed, even by his friends, now that he has gone to his reward.

WASHINGTON (NC) - After five years of participation, the National Catholic Educational Association has announced it will not support American Education Week this Fall.

about 50 "supporting organizations" promote the observance by notifying their constituents about it. NCEA had been a supporting organization for the past five years.

"For several years now, I have questioned whether we could in conscience endorse the program for American Education Week," Father C. Albert Koob, NCEA presideot, said in a letter to the National Education Association, one sponsor of Lll::. Oct. 22-28 observance. "We at NCEA desperately want good education as much as our public school colleagues do," Father Koob continued. "What gets terribly frustrating, however, is to find private education completely overlooked in the lit路 erature you produce." Co-sponsored by NEA, the American Legion, the U. S. Office of Education and the National Congress of Parents and Teachers, American Education Week has been held annually since 1921. Its purpose, according to NEA officials, is "to focus public attention on the nation's schools in order to gain arid maintain citizen support." School-related materials and suggestions for programs spotlighting education are sent out by the co-sponsors each year in preparation for the event.

"The institutions which cosponsor the project start with the basic assumption, presumably, that publie schools are the only American way to educate," Father Koob said in his letter to Richard F. Nielsean, assistant director of the NEA's publishing division.

'Basic Assumption' In addition to


Responding to the NCEA 'president's charges, Nielsen told NC News that materials produced for American Education Week do not distinguish between public and private education. "Materials might be something like 'Answers to Questions About Guidance,' 'Cigarettes and Youth,' or 'Get Involved in YOl:r Child's School,''' he said reading a' sampling of the h~adings this year. "All of these materials are usual equally as well in a public or a private school," Nielsen continued. "The important thing that we'a dealing with here is the child. Private school groups still listed as "supporting organizations" for this Fall's American Educati.onWeek include the U. S. Catholic Conference (USCC) elementary and secondary education division and' the National . Society for Hebrew Day Schools.

Wall to Direct' News Service I

WASHINGTON (NC)-R~chard M. Guilderson Jr. has resigned after nearly three years as director of the National Catholic (NC) News Ser:vice here. A. E. P. Wall, managing editor of the Honolulu Advertiser and former editor of The Catholic Review in Baltimore, will succeed Guilderson. Guilderson, a former editor of The Long Island Catholic, will develop a private publishing en. terprise and consultation service when he leaves NC after his contract expires Aug. 31.

Arms Race· 'Seen Suicidal, Not Just Tactic of War One of the perceptions which should flow from our new scientific knowledge of the planet's biosphere is a deepening of our reaction against man's oldest and most terrible institution-the institution of war. In the Synodal Document on Justice in the World, the bishops singled Only a billionaire would want a submachine gun in his back out the destructiveness of garden. But if his pljlnt's conthe new weapons of modern tract is for submachine guns, he nuclear science as a special force of disruption. In their words: Ancient divisions between nations and empires, between races



and classes, today possess new technological instruments of destruction. The arms race is a threat to man's highest good, which is life; it makes poor peoples and individuals yet more miserable, while making richer those already powerful; it creates a continuous danger of conflagration, and in the case of nuclear arms; it threatens to destroy alI life from the face of the earth. Moreover, Cardinal Krol, in a particularly effective intervention at the Synod, pointed out that it was not only the developed nations that were spending ruinous sums on armamentsof the $204 billion spent on arms in 1970, the United States and Russia between them account for at least $150 billion. But, in Cardinal Krol's words: The tragedy of military expenditure is that developing nations are suffering most from the, arms race. While military spending during the past six years increased 50 per cent in the world, the percentage of increase in developing nations was 145 per cent. From 1964 to 1968, the percentage ,of military spendirig increased 36.6 per cent in the world, 57 per cent in the United States, but in a number of developing countries the increase ranged from 100 to as high as 333.3 per cent. This level {)f expenditure represents an extreme of insanity .from a wide variety' of standpoints. In the first place; it is in direct conflict with the need to satisfy' baSic human requirements - protein for children, shelter for families, work for parents. • No Consumer Goods Secondly, it is the most inflationary of alI spending because the materials that go into arms production' produce no consumer goods to soak up the wagesand profits-of the arms makers.

is not producing what people in his factory want to buy. Their money goes off to increase the competition for other goods and push up the price as a result. . Thirdly, as Cardinal Krol underlined in his speech, the sheer scale of the arms effort defeats any rationality in defense. Today strategic arsenals are loaded with nuclear power cap- . able of destroying alI life with the over-kill equivalent of 15 tons of dynamite for every person ... The irony of all is that even today we read arguments why it is necessary to increase military expenditure to maintain a balance of power. The fact is. that the destructive power in the arsenals of the world cannot prevent mass destruction of life. It can at best .retaliate causing a greater loss of life. Even after such a destructive exchange, the problem of negotiating a just and lasting peace by removing the injustices which led to war would be as urgent as ever. But perhaps the most serious aspect of mankind's collective folly in so-caIled defense is rooted in our steadily deepening knowledge of the planetary system which alI mankind have to share. Science has been so busy for the last four hundred years studying the basic elements of matter and power by isolating and measuring them that it has only recently begun to realize that, in nature, everything hangs toget~er and you c~nnot make interventions in any direction without stirring up reactions elsewhere.

Italian Cardinal Doubts Election Rules GENOA (NC)-An Italian cardinal has expressed theological and juridical doubts about reports that Pope Paul VI is planning to alter the rules of the elections of Popes in the future to make them more democratic and less tied to theD:-0ce;;e of Rome. Cardinal Giuseppe Siri of Genoa, in an article in the Italian religious magazine Renovatio, discussed a series of rumors and reports that have been appearing in the press for almost a year concerning a draft' document said to be on Pope Paul's desk that would modernize the rules. governinp, conclaves to elect future Popes. Press reports h~ve suggested that in the future Popes might be elected by delegated Bishops from the various national bishops' conferences or other delegates, including the possiblity of laymen· taking part. The reports also have' suggested that the rules of secrecy surrounding a

conclave in the past might be altered. Matter of Time (In Albany, N.Y., in a recent interview in the Evangelist, the diocesan weekly, the head of the Pontifical Commission on Social Communications said that it is "taken for granted" in Rome that a new procedure for elect~ ing Popes will be announced soon. (The communications official, American Archbishop Edward L Heston, said that the election methods are being chan!,::: and it is "only a matter of time" until they are announced. He saia that the college of cardinals may be supplemented by representatives of the world's bishops, of lay organizations and of Religious orders.)

Knowledge When you know a thing, to hold that you know it, and when you do not know it, to admit that you do not - this is true knowledge. -Confucius

The Genoa cardinal said he saw no way in which it would be possible to separate the election of a Pope from its historic connection with the Diocese of Rome, which was the See of St. Peter. Technically all cardinals are considered part of the clergy of Rome and thus are the electors of the Pope. Roman Church. Elects In his article, Cardinal Siri said: "One cannot see how theologically one can entertain a separation of the primacy in the Church from the episcopal See of Rome or deny with any foundation that the Roman diocese must be the juridical title of the succession of St. Peter." The cardinal said also that "no idea of democratic or federalist elections can appear when one considers theologicallv or Juridically the question of the election of a Roman pontiff. It is the Roman Church (the Diocese of,Po' which must elect its bishop,"

HANSEN'S DISEASE: LEPROSY HANSEN'S DISEASE (leprosy) is a chronic c'ommunicable disease resulting in lesions of the skin, the upper respiratory and ocular mucous membranes, and the peripheral nerves. Some 15 million people are afflicted with Hansen's Disease in mission countrieswhere, unattended, the effects are most tragic. Treatment is inexpensive, yet missionaries can only help as many as their resources provide, and for this THEY DEPEND ENTIRELY ON YOU!

Please HELP them today by a generous to the Society for the Propagaof the Faith, now in its 150th Salvation and Service.

Arms' Race Suicidal Today, an all-out nuclear attack could kill 120 miliion people in America. Even with a full defense of anti-ballistic missiles, 40 to 60 million could be killed. Meanwhile, scientists on each side are working to defeat the ABMs with saturation bombing made possible ·by fixing multiple warheads to each missile-the so-calIed MIRVS. A 60 million holocaust of deaths appears a minimum. Nor does' it include the uncounted numbers of those who would die of hunger and plague as farms and sewage systems break down. But even this immediate horror fades .before the certainty that to expose humanity to the radiations emitted by megatons of fusion bombs would damage for all time a large part of mankind's genetic stock. We could begin to breed not men, but .monsters. We cannot escape this risk. The living airs and waters carry Strontium 90 and Cesium 137 all round the planetary . biosphere. .The arms race, set in our new understanding of our physical interdependence, is suicide, not war.

They had a large Joan Haslip's The Crown of sail entourage, but it did not include Mexico (Holt, Rinehart and one person capable of giving , Winston, 383 Madison Ave., New York, N. Y. 10017. $10). This is a very long but always interesting book: long, because

it has to set forth; interesting, because the drama is unflagging. Mexico was part of the Spanish empire until 1820, when independence was achieved. Then Mexico was declared an empire in itself, but no stable government obtained, and no one form of governmennt. In a period of 30 years, for example, there were no fewer than 30 presidents. By the time t!le 1860s came around, control of Mexico was contested by two parties, the Conservatives and the Liberals, the latter being bitterly opposed to the Church. The leader of the Liberals was Benito Juarez, a full-blooded Indian. Maximilian Chosen Various European countries had stakes in Mexico. Sizable loans had been made, bond' issues had been floated, and the mineral' riches of the country were eyed greedily. Napoleon III of France, itching for gain and glory, sent troops to Mexico to pacify it and to protect the French investment there. He did this when the outbreak of the Civil War in the United States prevented Mexico's neighbor from effectively resisting European influence on this continent. Napoleon later decided that a complete take-over was feasible. The Mexican Empire would be revived with a prince of his choosing, and therefore amenable to him, at its head. His nod went to Archduke Maximilian of Habsburg, then 32. Maximilian was married to Charlotte of Belgium, daughter of the King of the Belgians. In his generation, Maximilian: was a second son. His slightly older brother, Franz Josef, had' succeeded to the Austrian crown. Mexico Battleground This meant that Maximilian was doomed to gilded idleness, with ambition thwarted and with his brother regarding him, next in line, with suspicion and some hostility. The archduke welcomed the opportunity to be a sovereign in his own right, and Franz Josef was glad to be rid of him. Maximilian's wife Charlotte was even more eager than he for the crown of Mexico. She spurred him on whenev,er he had doubts about the course on which Napoleon was luring him.

them sensible advice. They were appalled by their first view of Mexico, at the port of Vera Cruz. What had they expected? Probably something somehow comparable to the Europe where they had lived so sumptuously. Dependent on Napoleon All their illusians were soon to be shattered. Mexico was still a battleground. The French had not established order. The government affairs were in chaos. 'There was no money, nei effiCient personnel. Maximilian found that he was humiliatingly dependent on Napoleon, and that Napoleon's word was worth nothing. Juarez and his Liberals hact not given up. They were still carrying on guerrilla warfare. And in the United States, the Civil War was drawing to a close, which meant that material assistance would soon be poured into Juarez's hands and that Washington's influence would be . brought heavily to bear against Maxmilian. In Europe, meanwhile, Napoleon's days of peacocking were numbered. His largely pasteboard empire was falling apart, and the might of Prussia was beginning to loom ominously over it. Napoleon became anxious to salvage what he could from the Mexican misadventure and then to quit it utterly. Good Intentions Maximilian was personally attractive and agreeable, but not qualified to rule. He had good intentions and wa~ honorable, but he lacked both the qualities and the means to deal with the difficult Mexican' situation, as alien to him as he was to it. He did try to fulfill his impossible role, but !lever was there any prospect of success. When he finally grasped the fact, he could have abdicated. But his wife pressed him to stay on. By this time she was showing signs of mental imbalance, and shortly 'she was to plunge into madness. This occurred in 1866, during a trip she made to Europe to enlist' the support of Napoleon and of Pope Pius IX. She raged uncontrollably at Napoleon, but her final breakdown occurred in Rome. She never returned to Mexico. Fate of Millions . The end for Maximilian came when, with the French army evacuated and Juarez's forces taking over more and more of the country, the emperor assumed command of his raggletaggle troops, led them in the field, was quickly beaten, and was taken prisoner. He was court martialed, and a firing squad ended his life on June 19,1867, a little more than three years after his ill-starred arrival in Mexico. Charlotte lived on for 60 years, never recovering sanity; she died in Belgium in 1927. This is a minor episode in his-

Two hundred youths were arrested. In June, a 20-year-old man also burned himself to death in protest of the Soviet oppression.

Concerned Catholic Radicals 'Cer,ain' About E~Yerything Richard Neuhaus is a Lutheran minister who has been extremely active· in the radical political movements of the past years. In a recent arti.cle in Worldview, of which he is an associate editor, Neuhaus raises a very

serious question ,!bout the activities that he and others have engaged in. He says, "Christian· critics of social activism claim, with too much justice, that those of us who engage in the struggle for change have simp:y appro-


priated' a Christian veneer to disguise what is a prior and essentially political decision." Neuhaus continues, "It is not enough to say that one has simply decided to 'strengthen the forces of goodness in the world,' for it is rare to find any Christian ... who would not make the same claim for himself. H is perhaps the chief problem of Christian ethics today that "those most engaged in the struggle for change have failed to articulate . persuasively the connection between th~ir engagement and the particularities of Christian be-· lief; indeed, there is frequently a note of disdain for the orthodox Christian belief system." .. Worst Danger

to disagree with your decision, then I am "religiously evil"; but if I am evil, no political compromise between you and me is possible, and it may very well become necessary for you to destroy me· eventually. 'Only' Solution I doubt that there is a single major political decision made in the United States today about which men of good will, sincerity, and integrity and intelligence cannot: disagree in good faith. When '·'concerned Christians" pretend that their solution is the only solution that is permitted for Christians, they become the . worst kind of doctrinaire bigots. Of course, they are quite incapable . of dialoging with others who may also insist that their decision is the only possible moral approach to a social problem. Far better that we limit our Christianity to motivating us to political commitment and be properly cautious and modest about the wisdom of our solutions to political problems. I 'am personally convinced, for example, that subsidized quota integration of metropoliitan regions can play an important part in solving the race problem in the United States. I have been led to this position by' the ex;tremely forceful and intelligent arguments of Dr. Anthony Downs; but I freely concede that· there are difficulties' and weaknesses in such political program, and I am sure Dr. Downs would agree. .

Stress Pastoral Councils' Value At Workshop

The Stars

WASHINGTON (NC)-Participants in a workshop on diocesan pastoral councils were told that the councils are the principal agel}cies which "put into practice the mandates to shared responsibility" of Vatican II. "If the Church as a unity of participation among all elements of the People of God is really to succeed, it will do so largely through you," Father Robert G. Howes told council members. Father Howes, a staff member of the Center for applied Research in the Apostolate, was director of the eight-day workshop at Catholic University here. "The experience to date with pastoral councils is at least ambiguous," Father Howes said. "Their role is often unsure. Their methodology is rather more individual than common. Called to be giants, they seem sometimes trivial and inconsequential. Their operational relationships with other diocesan bodies and departments remain uncertain." New Patterns While Father Howes found some virtue in the fact that councils c~were launched in a free-fall dimension with little specific direction," he said that the operation of the councils should now be evaluated. "This workshop was set up precisely to suggest that new patterns of assistance to and communication among all Church and particularly councillors, those who function at the dioc- . esan level, are essential." Father Bernard Quinn of CARA reminded participants that while planning and participation are important elements in the work of councils, "prayer is essential here, both to invoke the Spirit's guidance and to prepare the decision-makers to accept it with fidelity. At least at such times in the decision-making process, prayer must have a formal place.

the safety of the United States. The U.S. bishops bought the resort for $19,500. Initial refurbishing and repair of the 172 rooms in the main building was $200,000. For the past 35 years Mexican youths have studied theology or philosophy under the Jesuits here, occupying 900 acres of "old" Mexico, set in the wildly beautiful northern New Mexico countryside. Thousands of men from old Mexico have come to New Mexico to train for the priesthood, and 1,500 have been ordained. Change came quickly, however, and within the last few years enrollment dropped as new seminaries began to open in Mexico, according to Father Gonzalo Garcia, the seminary administrator. The Jesuit community offered the Mexican bishops two suggestions. Either they send more students, or the seminary would move, lock, stock, and library, to Mexico. The second alternative was chosen, and this summer packing will begin for the move to Tula, Hidalgo, in Mexico. "Montezuma will not end, it next Spring, so that a final vote will move," emphasized Father can be taken at the November, Garcia.

Continued from Page Sixteen might have been selfish, idealistic, and limited in egoisme· a deux has to be stripped away for love to grow and mature. But what was so valuable in commuand rapport during nications egoisme a deux needs to be remembered, resurrected, and nurtured. A person doesn't make himself known to another just once -and then nothing needs to be said anymore. A person doesn't need to deeply listen to another just once-and then think that he or she has heard everything that's necessary to know. A relationship is what you make it every day of your life. It may be too simple to even mention but the first step in communications for married couples is to want to continue understanding .each other. And that is not as simple as it sounds. The second point also sounds deceivingly simple. This is to . recognize differences - differences in temperaments, in values, in personaEties, in handling conflict, in rearing children; natural differences between people; psychological differences between sexes. The third point can often get overlooked. This is to try to understand the importance of the past - before the two of you ever met. This goes back to childhood, to adolescence, to relations with parents and brothers and sisters. to all the hurts and laughs and good times and bruises along the way. Your marriage-mate was not a person sprung from nowhere the day you met him or her. We all have our histories-and they take a lifetime to tell. The fourth point is to realize how a living religious faith can transform marital life and elevate communications to a new level. The celebrated Swiss physician-psychotherapist, Dr. Paul Tournier, addresses this point when he writes that a' couple "may discuss philosophical and religious questions, theological and ecclesiastical. But express their innermost convictions, their own experiences, their own doubts, their own feelings, their own relationship to God- this is quite another matter! It is the highest tie binding a couple together and yet it is rare." "Happy are the couples," Tournier continues, " who do recognize and understand that their happiness is ~ gift of God, who can kneel together to express their thanks not only for the love which he has put in their hearts, the children he has given them, or all of life's joys, but also for the progress in their marriage which he brings about through -that hard school of mutual understanding."
