DAYTON (NC)-CathoIic, Protestant and Jewish lay scholars agree that a Christian understanding of the orole of Mary has been often obscured by cloudy terminology. Representatives of the three faiths met at the annual M~r­ ian Institute at the Univer­ standing more now-is a beauti­ sity of Dayton here in Ohio ful thing in that it is a way you tv discuS's their different get to Jesus Christ through ootions on the place of Mary Mary." itt the Church and in the ehristian life. Dale Francis, a Catholic jour­ nalist, declared that the ter­ minology used by the Catholic Church for many years "was so totally outside the terminology used by other Christians that we were fast ooming to a place where we were talking to our­ selves about Mary when we should be talking to the whole world." He urged Catholics to "return to a discussion of Mary that can be understood by all," and sug­ gested that the Scriptural ac­ count of the Marriage Feast of eana" is a plaee where Catholic and Protestant can meet." At the same time, a Presby­ terian, S. W. Becher, agreed that 1Ile meaning of the Immaculate eonception is not considered in most Protestant instruction. "I think you are using Mary to let to Jesus Christ more than we are," he said, "but I believe we are all going in the same direc­ tion, and this Is the ecumenical point. I definitely feel that the Immaculate Conception-know­ iPg more, and certainly under-

Roscoe Burger, a Lutheran, observed that Martin Luther de­ fended the idea of Mary's per­ petual virginity before and after the Reformation. But, he sa,id, devotional practices of Cath­ olics led evangelical Christians lJo turn their backs on the no­ tion. Some speakers at the day-long conference said they do not be­ lieve Mary had any part to play in the role of Christ or -His Church, or in the lives of Chris­ tians. Others said they were oonfused by such words as "adoration" and "veneration" when used by Catholics. " Speaking on the Assumption, Mrs. Harry DeWaire of the Evangelical United Brethren Church declared that how Mary's life ended is "irrelevant" and is not found in Scripture. Such a belief, she said, "would not be oonsistent with Protest­ antism." Father Thomas A. Stanley, S.M., dean of the university, said in oonclusion that the problems in terminology create fictitious differences that are "not with Mary, but with idols of Mary."

CatholicAlumnus 'Unique Asset' To Society

Sees Value For Teen-agers In Welt" Conducted Parties

SPOKANE (NC)-Catho­ lie colleges and universities produce a graduate "who is unique in his acquisition C1l

By Rev. Joseph T. McGloin, S.J. A weed is sometimes billed as a flower out of place. Unfortunately there are a lot of weeds going strong in life, even teen-aged life, long before the real flowers get to do much growing. Take that hallowed institution allied with dating, for instance - par­ up in an orgy rather than ties. Parties are great in aends party. themselves, but indulge in Plan it well, invite the right them too soon, too much, or crowd, keep out the drifters, in the wrong kind of party, and you've got a weed patch which will choke off any 1 0 vel i e r growth before it can even get started. Certainly par­ ties are not the right diet of the very yo ung. Even older teen-agers can ruin ago 0 d thing by be­ coming so wrapped up in partying that everything else-sucll as their religion, education, and home life- become annoying obliga­ tions wedged in between the parties. Some parents seem to think they're insulting their kids when they chaperon or even show up at their parties. But such par­ ents aren't even as smart as their kids--there isn't a teen-ager in existence who has even been to an unchaperoned party who couldn't wise them up. Types to Avoid Sometimes, you'll know right away that a party isn't for you. You get this-from the types in­ vited or from the v.ery way it's being planned and the attitude of those in charge. This type of party is easy to recognize and avoid - if your will' is any good at all. Much more difficult is the tactful handling of the inevitable lone Clod who has convinced himself that God created him for tile sole purpose of being "the life of the party." He's the character who turns out the lights for gushy, senti­ mental dancing, because he hasn't much of a personality even with' the light on. He's the one thinks that "party," and "necking and petting" are synonyms, because his IQ and his age aren't too far apart. He's the sparkling persl;mality who has to bring along some booze and ridicule others into drinking it - because this seems to make him a big man. Planning Important The most important prelim­ inary to a real party is that it be well planned, from the invi­ tation list down through the food, drink, and activities. It's the poorly planned party, "pre­ sided over" by some feeble ex­ cuse for a host or hostess, that

New Shrine Basilica To Open in August CAP DE LA MADELEINE (NC)-Formal opening of the new basilica of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary will take place h.ere Friday, Aug. 14. The occasion also will mark the 250th anni­ versary of the old Shrine Chapel of Our Lady. This shrine is popularly known as that of Our Lady of the Cape. Thousands of pilgrims visit it each year. The old shrine chapel here is n<lW the oldest Catholic church in Canada pre­ served in its original form. It has been a perpetual shrine ded_' icated to the Queen of the Holy Rosary since 1888. The new basilica, which can accommodate some 6,000 per­ Ions, will supplement the old .tone shrine and not replace it, \fficial.<: said.

and you have a ball. Let it be haphazard and invite or allow in any slob at all, and it's a disgrace to you. The planned party will include plenty of chance for good fun and entertainment and will leave no room for the immature antics, such as kissing games, which the unimaginative clod will invariably fall back on. (Even doting parents some­ times smile tolerantly at such stuff, until it becomes obvious that debasing a kiss to the level of a toy leads to the desecration of far more serious things as well.) Offer Opportunities There are plenty of party gaines which, far from being corny and infantile, are so much fun even the adults enjoy them. There are fun-dances, too, which have a lot more imagina­ tion. and less bad manners to them than the twist. . Even apart from the fun they provide, parties give you a chance to show what sort of or­ ganizer you are, how good a host or hostess, or how proficient you are at helping a group to enjoy each other's company. Parties give you a good chance to see how unselfish or self­ centered you really are, an occa­ sion to practice charity and self­ denial. The teen-ager who is maturing into man or a woman knows the place parties should have and what a good party should be. Closer to God Above all, know the "why" of parties just as you know the reason for everything else: to help you to get to God, who is your only Purpose. The party which takes you farther from God or even dis­ tracts from Him isn't the right kind. The one which brings you closer to Him, in the enjoyment of His life and the appreciation of His creatures, the party which makes you a better balanced, more alive individual-this is the party God wants you to en­ joy to the full.

Assures Lithuanians Of God's Protection WASHINGTON (NC)-Dele­ gates to the Lithuanian Ameri­ can Congress were assured here that God would not forget their native country, oppressed poli­ tically and religiously by Soviet communism. In a sermon at the National Shrine of the Immaculate Con­ ception, Msgr. John Balkunas, pastor of the Lithuanian church of the Transfiguration, Maspeth,: N.Y., declared that "we are ap~ to lose sight of the fact that Divine Providence rules over the world's destinies, and that in our days--as in the days of old­ God is shaping the course of these events to suit His own pur­ poses." Msgr. Balkunas said religion jn Lithuania is being "slowly choked to death" by government pressures on the clergy and faithful. While he said political' action . was necessary, he em­ phasized that the final victory. would not come by political in­ tervention or armed might. "This concerns Christ more than us," he said.

T,,'ice Speed of Sound Forrner Air Force Chaplain Flies Jet 1,400 Miles per Hour ALBUQUB:RQUE (NC) - Fr. Richard E. Spellman, pastor of Our Lady OJ: the Most Holy Ros­ ary church here in New Mex­ ico, has piloted an Air Force F-104 jet fighter to twice the SPe4:!d of sound about 1,400 mil4!s per hour.

such speeds, Father Spellman said many priests are very ser­ ious about flying. We feel there is a definite use for aviation in the priesthood, in the Church and in' the field of relig·iolJl," he said. .

Father Paul C. Re; 'Sidem of St. Louis Y. told a conference o. .o:ie high schools, held at Gonzaga University here in Washington, that "only the Catholic college can produce the individual with the adaptability to meet the de­ mands of dynamic revolution in human knowledge and the sta­ bility to remain unperturbed in adherence to the God-given principles that alone can g~ve meaning to human existence." Urging the- 200 persons atten­ ding the meeting to forget the arguments usually given in fa­ vor -of Catholic colleges, Father Reinert said only the uniqueness of the product provides a ration­ ale for Catholic higher educa­ tion. Spiritual 'Investment' Catholic colleges cannot claim they have cornered the market in methodology or appreciation of liberal arts. But, said Father Reinert, "our education is based on the Catholic idea of human nature and the Catholic ideal of human development. "For us, the hwnanistic tra­ dition, philosophy and theology all come to the same conclusion: the highest and noblest level of man's life is his ability to know and to love." Father Reinert admitted that in a time of increasing costs Catholic colleges are expensive, but he called upon parents te make a material and spiritual "investment" in their childre.a.

A licensed pilot for 24 years and a former Air Force chap­ lain, Father Spellman took off from Kirtland Air Force Base_ with Maj. William Cato and took control of the jet plane about 30,000 feet over the Rio Grande River. Said Cato: "I never feU; quite so secure. I told him before we took off that if we got into any trouble he should contact his Bosll." B,elieved 10 be the first clergy­ man ever to pilot a plane at

Doctor Predicts Changes in Care Of Menta lIy III NEW Y 0 R K (NC)­ Changes in the concept and eare of the mentally ill will produce the medical profes­ sion's "greatest break with tra­ dition," CatOOlic hospital ad­ ministrators were told at their annual conventiof' here. Dr. Jack C. Haldeman, presi­ dent of the Hospital Review and Planning Council of New York, Inc.. predicted that the large, traditional state institutions will give way to community merrtal health facilities which will pro­ vide preventive, diagnostic, out­ patient and inpatient services. He said such centers will make possible a 50 per cent reduction in the number of inpatient beds by 1975 if they are tailored to meet the medical and nursing needs of the patient so that men­ tal health facilities ''will no longer be a dumping ground for the senile aged." Dr. Haldeman spoke at the 49th annual convention here of the Catholic Hospital Associa­ Cion of the U. S. and Canada. Advocates Planning Dr. Haldeman praised the re­ eent action of Congress provid­ ing grants to assist in construc­ tion of ::ommunity mental health' eenters in connection with gen:.. eral hospitals. He said further grants would make Federal funds available for the renova­ tion or replacement of obsolete bospital facilities. , He urged all hospitals to estab­ lish a long-range planning and development committee to cre­ ate written programs which can be translated into architectural plans. '"Those institutions with well «tought-out written functional and architectural plans," he said, "'may well be in a favora-ble position in obtaining ~arce funds for capital construction." Dr. Haldeman also called 9n hospitals to cooperate in area­ wide planning programs which, be said, are designed "to make available the highest possible quality of medical care in health facilities with maximum effi­ eiency and ~conomy."

St. Bernard's Mission, Assonet, Otves Start

To Efforts of Women in Spring. of 1910

By Marion Unsworth The lay apostolate is considered relatively modern, but it was practised in its most effective sense in 1910 by two Catholic women whose efforts resulted in the establishment of St. Bernard's Church~ Assonet, administered by priests of St. Vincent's Horne, Fall River. In 1910 the community of Assonet, approximately five per cent Catholic, was wrthoutchurch, services, or eatechetical instruction. Many young people, as -a result of their parents' guid­

ance, walked eight miles each way to Fall River on Sundays to attend Mass at st. Joseph's, St. Matthew's or St. Michael's churches. Two Fall River teachers, the late Misses Mary E. G. Leat and Elizabeth Finneran, while walk_ ing in the Assonet woods in the Spring of 1910, discovered. by talking with some young boys that Assonet was without reli­ gious facilities and immediately promised to meet wiih the youngsters of the community the following Sunday. After consulting with the late Bishop Dani~l F. Feehan, Miss Leat was provided wiih a horse and carriage to transport her each Sunday. Lessons were held at the home of Mrs. Christine Ra[)oza of South Main Street near Crystal Spring !31eachery. Under direction of the older girls, preparatory classes were held each Tuesday night. Ap­ proximately 25 girls and boys attended. Sisters Come By that Fall, the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary from Fall River were assigned to instruct these children and they went to Assonet every second Sunday with classes at several different homes in the area. Rev. Bernard Boylan, pastor of St. Joseph's Church, Fall River, who played an important part in the beginnings of the mission, prepared the children of the first Communion class, going twice weekly to Assonet for this purpose. The first Com­ munion was held at St. Joseph's Church, the communicants walk­ ing eight miles and taking a street car the remainder of the way into Fall River. By 1912, the need for a Mass in Assonet, was evident, and Father Boylan agreed to cele­ brate Mass in the home where catechetical. instructions were . held. From that time until 1918 Prog~am Mass was offered in the homes UTRECHT (NC) - Bernard of Mrs. Rapoza, Mrs. Mary Ferry, f:ardinal Alfrink of Utrecht has Mrs. Rosanna Murphy, Mrs. Mc­ criticized a television program .,t the Dutch Catholic radio and Crohan and Mrs. Mary McHale at intervals of two or three TV station as creating "unrest months.

March 1, 1927, when Rev. Charles J. A. Donovan succeeded him. Two Sisters of Mercy from St. Vincent's Home attended all services, taking charge of the children during Mass, giving catechetical instruction, and training the choir. Some land at Ridge Hill wa,s purchased as a possible site for a permanent church but the depression inter­ vened and later the site was thought too far from the village center. In 1930, Rev. William H. Har­ rington was assigned to the mis_ sion, which expanded greatly with the establishment in 1934 and 1935 of Civilian Conserva­ tion Camps in the area. In spite of alterations in the temporary ehapel, there was insufficient room for parishioners and in 1936 the Grinnell pr()perty, for­ merly the Pierce estate on South Main Street, was purchased. The estate contained 24 acres of land and a large colonial dwelling. Originally, plans were conceived to remodel the dwelling but they were deemed impractical Mr. Charles Maginnis of Boston was engaged to draw up plans for a church. Honor First Pastor Work on the new church be­ gan in July, 1937, and was com­ pleted the following January with a seating capacity of 192.

On February 6, 1938, the church was dedicated to St. Bernard, patron of the first pastor to serve Assonet, and the first Mass was celebrated. Father Harrington remained at St. Bernard's until 1949 when Rev. John E. Boyd was assigned to St. Vincent's Home and St. Bernard's. In 1960 he bought the former Assonet Country Club and renova ted it for use as a parish hall and catechetical center. He was succeeded in October, 1962, by Rev. John P. Cronin, formerly of st. Patrick's Parish, Fall River. At present approximately 145 families comprise St. Bernard's mission. Three Masses are of­ fered each Sunday. Active or­ ganizations include a Women's Guild, Confraternity of ChriS'­ tian Doctrine, St. Vincent de Paul Society, and Catholic Youth Organization. Sisters from St. Vincent's Home and lay teachers are in charge of Confra­ terni~ classes.

WILMINGTON (NC)-A lO-yeal'-old organization of Delaware Catholic, Protes­ tant and Jewish clergymen in its first public statement op­ poses required prayer and Bible reading in public schools. The Wilmington Clergy Dia­ logue Group's statement en­ dorses teaching of'the Bible and religion in public schools ''where they are relevant to the study of. literature and history." The statement, signed by 27 members, says no government should choose prayers and Bible versions for prescribed reading in the schools. The statement favors continued use of the word God on coins and also the serv­ ices of chaplains in the nation's armed forces. Cochairmen of the group, or­ ganiZed 10 years ago under aus­ pices of the National Conference of Christians and .Jews, are Father Francis J. Herron (Cath­ olic); the Rev. Robert E. Gro­ chau (Protestant) and Rabbi Jacob Kraft (Jewish). The statement expresses the following views: 'The specific granting of au­ thority to any agency of gov­ ernment . . . to choose prayers and Bible versions and passages for prescribed reading in public schools constitutes a violation of the principle of Church-State separation and a threat to the religious liberty as guaranteed in the First Amendment of the Constitution." "Religious practice is not sub.. ject to majority rule. The guar­ antee 'of religious dissent, with­ out pressure or stigma, is the cornersfone of the individual'. liberty in a free society. . ."

Helping Hand

To End Divisions

EII,"~do.

. .After a year of argument and debate, the civil rights bIll IS now law. Its passage should be received with neither wild claims of victory nor with bitter' threats of defiance but as a measure that is morally right and the present la~ of the ·land. As President Johnso.n said at its signing, the purpose of the law is "not to divide but to end divisions ..• and to promote a more constant pursuit of justice and a deeper respect for human dignity." . A two-fold burden' has been placed on the nation by .this law: its provisionsnius-t be adhered to in every part of the land no matter how unpalatable this may be in certain areas of the nation; and-the advocates of civil rights must be gracious and patient in the working out of the law. Negro leaders are well aware that this is a crucial m0It:1ent in their long and righteous struggle. The principles of Christian charity and" reasonableness must not give way in this hour to a sense of power at seeing the hopes and dreams of a- hundred years come to realization. As the Trappist monk Thom~s Merton .has ·written: "It is ... possible that as the . movement ga:ins in power; the reasonableness and the Chris­ tian fervor ... will recede into the background and the move­ ment will become more, and more an unreasoning and intransigent mass movement dedicated to the conquest of sheer po~er, more and more inclined to violence." _ A striking aspect of. the long, slow, tedious climb ~ this hour has be.en the Negro's Christian charity and hope, his. truly Chr.ist-like patience and long-suffering in the face .of daily persecution. These qualities have enhanced his image and made his struggle a work of nobility and not of mere power. These qualities must be as much in evidence now and in the. future as they have been in the past. The erstwhile proponents of segregation must follow the law of God a~d the law of -the land. They must be helped to do this by all civil rights supporters. This. is _the hour for all men to end divisions audto go forward.in the .pursuit of justice and the deeper respect for human dignity that is the goal -of each individual and of. the natfon. . The lliw is clear-cut. It· remains' now for all men of good-will to put aside prejudices-arid pettiness and to make the law'work to end divisions and-to bring about the equality . that is before God and must exist among' men, an equality not. of talents . but of dignity and worth. -

There Ought To ·Be A phrase that comes to mind ·from .time to time is the one, There ought to be a law. Certainly such a thought came to many who read of the· indifference of. neighbors to the eries for help of a young woman being pursued and killed . . a while ago in New York City. As a matter of fa~t, many' of the countries of Europe have laws punishing the inaction of citizens 'who witness the mortal danger of another and do nothing to help. It seems strange that people have to be coerced into decency and concern for the commOn good. But perhaps there is no other approach that will work. . " The countries of Europe having s'uch a measure are countries with a strong Christian culture. A basic tenet of Christianity is love of neighbor and a legitimate concern with his welfare, physical as well as spiritual. And so a citizen who sees a neighbor in dire need and does nothing to help when he could act without serious difficulty is going against the whole fabric of Christianity and is endangering the spirit of family concern that each p~rson should have for every other person. . It would seem an ill day when Americans must be reminded of the basic decencies by the existence of laws threatening with sanctions their refu,sal to aid those in pressing need. But if men look with indifference upon the moral danger of others, more and more people are going to be repelled by such callousness and begin saying, There ought to be a law. .

TQMOltROW - Seven Holy Brothers,· Martyrs, SS. Rufina

and Secunda, Virgins, Martyrs. "If anyone does the will of my F;a:ther who is in heaven, he is my brother, and sister, and mother" (Gospel). Communion with Christ, identification with Christ, is the Father's will. He pointed to His disciples (Gospel), and all men are called to be His disciples. All are called to accept this relationship in faith, to be brother, sister, mother to the Savior of mankind. No accident of histor~' or of birth is a re­ quiremen'; for the life and fruit­ fulness pJ:omised by His resur­ rE!ction. MASS OF ST. MARY ON SATURDAY - Today's Gospel

te'aches the same lesson. Not even Mary's· exalted position and her gifts are to be envied by the perso:n. who hears the word of God and keeps it. The community of faith offers perfect happiness to the human perSQn, and in its ultimate con­ summation there is no want, and therefore no jealousies and no unfavorable comparisons. Mary is venerated as one who shows Ull what we can attain in Christ and through him.

Sometimes we get so involved in thi:! fine points of religion' and religious practice that we al- . most forget the great truth of God's love for man and the des­ tiny of - perfect happiness to which He invites us. The sacri­ ficial meal of the Mass is a fore­ taste, a sign, a pledge of heaven . where God feeds us no longer thro.ugh s!mbols but wit h

penence.

MONDAY-Mass as on Sun­ day. The Gospel teaches that the view of life which appears to UIS in our celebration of Mass must be. the integrating factor in all of our planning, all of our pro­ vision for the future. It should give wholeness, sense, meaning to our activities and our expe­ riences. It should· tie together the loose threads of our lives. Our evil deeds as well as our good deeds have a' place in this view, because it is only in such a picture that our wrongdoing is clearly seen as sin. We are stewards, caretakers, managers of much more than our material possessions-of the whole direc-

tion of our lives, as well.

TUESDAY - St. Bonaventure, Bishop, Doctor. A great teacher in the Church who fulfills the task described in today's Epistle and Gospel is always a model of, as well as an instructor in, the life of integrity, wholeness. The light of his life is no less impor­ tant than the salt of his teaching. Both, EntranCe and Gradual Hymns speak of wisdom, a gift much more valuable than knowl-/ edge alone.

NEW ORLEANS (NC)-Amer­ icans concerned about religion and higher education might do well to take a long look at Aus­ . tralia. While Ca"tholic religious com­ munities there do not run their own colleges and universities, 'they operate schools which are . affiliated with state-run univer­ sities, according to Mother The­ rese Walsh, provincial of Ursu­ line Sisters in Australia. Students attending the affiIi­ ated institutions take courses at both the state school and the church-related institution and receive their degrees from the state school. The Religious who operate the affiliated schools teach many subjects besides re­ ligion. The state helps pay for con­ struction of buildings at the affiliated schools,' subsidizes their libraries, and provides meals for ~udents. It also pays the Religious who are teachers. , Mother Therese said Austra-

lian Prime Minister Robert Menzies is currently pushing legislation which would increase the construction grants available to the affiliated schools, raising them to .a 50-50 matching basis. Federal aid in Australia is also available to nonpublic secondary schools, which since December have been getting grants for science buildings and equipment, the nun reported. Mother· Therese said the al.­ filiated school setup is popular with people generally. She said it makes it possible for students to be trained in their own reli­ gion while at the same time being a part of the larger pub. lie university. It has also helped to create a good ecumenical spirit and break down religious prejudice, she said.

WASHINGTON (NC) - The .. U. S. Gatholic Church struck. two EclSt African visitors as a­ "real mother who cares about· her children," they told govern­ ment and other officials at a luncheon here.

KUWANA (NC)-A vis­ iting American priest got a new name here, and has a good collection to prove it. Father Thomas W. Sadler, di­ ~ector of the Societ~' for the Propagation of the Faith iI" the Mobile - Birmingham diocese, gave a sermon in English and took up a mission coll~tion at the Maryknoll parish here. He had ·to change his name to "Father Sado" so that the Jap­ anese Catholics could pronounce it, but they repaid him well for the effort. "He made a real hit," reported the pastor, Father Robert J. Reiley, M.M., from Pottsville, Pa. "The collection was about five times what we usually get ' em a Sunday." Both priests mounted the pul- , :pit together for the sermon. After the American visitor de­ livered one line, the American missioner translated it, word for word. Then Father Reiley asked the Catholics to contribute gen­ erously . for a collection for "Father Sado" to take to a less developed mission. Father Reiley pointed out that though the rhurch in Japan has many pressing needs, all Catho­ lics have an obligation to help the worldwide mission of the Church.

Lay Missionaries' Plan Cooperation GLENDALE (NC) - Delegates of some 25 org·anizations spon';' eoring or employing lay volun';' teers in U. S. mission work took steps here toward mutual c0­ operation and help. About· 50 representatives of ,the organizations met· a,t the Glenmary ,Home . Missioners' seminary' here for' 'a "mission lIemInar." After discussion of recruiting, screen;ing" field .. supervision, e1ergy~lay relations, publicity. and ~inances, they' formed ·a seven';member committee to "be­ gin a ~udimentary central clear­ ing hohse for information and co­ ordin,tion of the home mission effort.,' 'Equal Responsibility' Arohbishop Karl J. Altar of Cincitinati opened the seminar with an address on the general :principles of the lay apostolate. Noting that the Second Va,ti~ ean Council may adopt a stat~ ment on the subject, he predicted that nothing basic will be chan-. ged by it. "The lay apostolate is as old as the :Church itself," he declar­ ed. "All who are baptised have 'an equai responsibility to work for the extension of Christ's kingdom on earth, according to their state of life."

Name Layman Head Of Catholic School· LAFAYETTE (NC) The first layman to serve asfulltim.e principal of a Catholic high school in the Lafayette diocese is William Miohot. He was ele­ \rated to the top job after serv­ ing for a number of years as assistant principal and head coach at Father Teurlings 'High School. BishQp Maurice Schexnaydel" Gi the Louisiana diocese, in ap­ :proviIig the appointment, said "lay teachers are here to stay in our' school system and we welcome them." He added: "We are not about tQ close down our Catholic schools. -Our children must be taught not only how to make.~ living but how tQ live." .

Plan Obsetvance Of Millennium ,In Chicago

OTTAWA (NC) - More than 500,000 marriage prep­ aration courses distributed in Canada, the United States and 14 other world countries during the past 20 years owe their origin to the Catholic Cen­ ter of the University of Ottawa. In addition the Catholic Cen­ ter has distributed 15,348 spe­ cially prepared courses for mar­ ried couples, and another 7,371 courses dealing with domestic economy. These figures were contained in a sPecial brief prepared for the recent Canadian Conference on the Family held in Ottawa. Before the Second World War, the French-language Christian Young Workers of Quebec prov- , ince investigated home condi­ tions and found an urgent need for a marriage preparation course which would give young couples a good knowledge of all aspects of married life, spiritual, physical, economic and legal. In 1944 Bishop Albert Sancha­ grin, O.M.I., of Amos, asked the founder of the Catholic Center of the' University of Ottawa to edit and prepare a text of the marriage, preparation course. Father Andre Guay, O,M.I., founder of the Catholic Center, agreed and thus began whet was to become the most extensive 'and worJd famous marriage prepax:aticm course.. In Many Languages The -.COurse began as a cor­ respondence study with a series of lessons, followed by test papers. This later expanded into oral courses and courses given through private tutelage. Since the beginning the courseS distributed up 'to De­ cember, 1963, in French and, English in Canada and ,the United states totaled 231,496. The courses were translated also into eight other languages, German, Sesotho (Basutoland), Flemiph, Portuguese, Spanish, Du-tc~ Italian and Arabic.

EJoliv ian Prelate Slays Maga.zine. Jteport False PATERSON (NC) - An alllxiliary' bishop of La Paz, Bolivia, haS described as false a U. S. magazine's re­ port that some leading Catho­ li.;:s are acquiescing in an un­ publicized birth control drive in Latin America. Bishop· Gennaro Prata, S.D.B., who was residing at Blessed Sacramen t parish rectory during a visit here in New Jersey, strongly. lienied the allegation. The 41-year-old Italian-born prelate was asked for comment on an ~icle in Look magazine which alkged that "an unpubli­ cized eantpaign for birth con­ trGI is' 11ll4er way in Latin America with the acquiescence arid mea£ured support of key elements I,f 'the Roman Catholic CJ!lUrch." . He calleii the Look article "an insult . to . the intelligence of Latin Am.erica as well as im­ pugning .the. integrity and loy­ alty of our priests."

"Furthermore," he said, "how far can one trust a journalist who will not reveal his sources? What priest could cond(}De birth control b~cause it is 'a lesser e~il' than abortion? The author's logic deJ:ies description. An evil, ever.. a lesser one, is not pE!rmitted. n' N:el'd More People' The prelate, a roem'ber of the SEllesians of St. John Bosco stated, thSlt "if we have learned anything from the history of at­ tempts ~ solve complex social problems by .the simple expedi­ enrt o~ hi ~ control, we have learned that the country which dE!Cides on, birth control has lost itl! vigor, is ~ing, if not already de,ad." Bishop l?rata· said the article's iIIlplicatio:lltbat "our part of the world is dead or dying" is an insult. "V7e' don't need fewer people--we need more people. We need :iD).migration.

Prelate Scores .Courts- Decision On Obscenity CLEVELAND (N C ) Archbishop Edward F. Hob­ an of Cleveland has criticized the U. S. Supreme Court's latest ruling on obscenity and

said it makes "even more diffi­

cult the task of protecting the

morals of the young."

The Supreme C()urt has re­ versed a ruling by the Ohio Supreme Court which upheld the conviction and fining of a Cleveland theatre manager for showing a French- movie called "The Lovers." Although . six . of the high court's nine justiceS favored re­ versal, they disagreed sharply on their reasons for doing so and were unable to produce a ma­ jor1ty opinion on ·the ease. Archbishop Hoban said in a statement that "by taking away local community standards as the legal test of obscenity, the decishm of the Supreme Court has unfortunately made even more difficult the task of pro­ tecting the morals of the young." He said Catholics are "point­ edly reminded" f>f the section of the national Legion of De­ cency pledge on avoiding "pla~es of amusement showing indecent and immoral films as Ii ...m atter of policy." He suggested that non-Catholics who· are "con­ cerned about declining moral standards" might find the pledge and ratings of the Legion of Decency to be useful guides. Hits Adversisements The Archbishop also expressed hope that newspapers "will be able to spare us from . . . ~la­ tant, suggestive, and highly f>f­ fensive" movie advertisements.Cuyahoga County Prf>secutor John T. Corrigan, who origi­ nated prosecution in the 'Lovers' . case, charged that the Supreme Court's action usurped the au­ thorIty of lower courts. He said the high court gene­ rally rules on whether lower courts have properly applied the law in a given case: But in the 'Lovers' case, he said, the. jus­ tices found the law correctly ap­ plied but "substituted their judgement of the morality of the film for that of the judges of the lower ·court." Corrigan said he will continue to prosecute similar cases in which a grand jury returns an obscenity indictment against a theatre manager or movie dis­ tributor.

Israel Seeks Curbs On Conversions JERUSALEM (NC)-Tbe Is­ raeli government has introduced a bill in the knesset (parliament) requiring that both parents must give their consent before a minor ehild can change his religion. The bill, introduced by Jus­ tice Minister Dov Joseph would also provide a six-month jail term· for persons convicted of "direct persuasion of minors 10 convert to another religion." The same day, the knesset de­ feated a bill which would pro­ ·hibit Christian schools from en­ rolling Jewish children.· The measure was introduced by an ultra-Orthodox member of the knesset, Rabbi Shlomh Lorencz. ·Supported by members of the religious parties, the. measure was defeated by the farge secu­ lar majority. .

Marquette Plans R·econstruction Of Historic Chapel on Campus MILWAUKE'E (NC)'- Mu­ quette Universiiy will recon­ struct an early 15th century French chapel - believed to be one in which Joan of Arc prayed before leading her countrymen into battle against the English in 1429-in the heart of the aca­ demic area of the university's proposed expanded campus. Father William F. Kelley, 8.J.,. university president, announced that the chapel is a gift from Mare B. Rojtman, New York financier and former Milwaukee industrialist, who maintains homes both here and in New York. "This unique and historic building," Father Kelley said, "will be a little jewel in' an academic setting - a place of worship, artistry, and inspira­ tion for our students, faculty and the entire community. "The 'JoPn of Arc Chapel' could become one of the most famous mo.numents in the. Mid­ west. It will, of course, be open to all students, faculty members and the public as an artistic and religious link with one of' the great moments in history." Stone by Stone T·he chapel, from a famous and historic region of France, will be moved stone by stone from the Rojtman's Long Island estate to Marquette this sum­ mer. Originally known as the Chapelle de St. Martin, it was located in Chasse, a town in the Loire valley of western France near the famed chateau of Chinon. In addition to donating the chapel, the Rojtmans have also provided the funds to dismantle the chapel and ship it to Mil­ waukee. The university will pay the cost of reconstruction. The work will involve removing and numbering the stones at Long Island and then replacing them in their original positions in Milwaukee. Legend and history connect the chapel to two of France's greatest warriors, St. Joan of Arc and the Chevalier de Sao­ tereau, who was companion-in­ arms of Bayard, heroic French knight of the Middle Ages.

Booklet as Guide To Interracial Harmony

FACE

By Msgr. George G. Higgins On Monday, June 22, representatives of the major reli­ gious groups of this country jointly sponsored an outdoor prayer service in Washington, D.C., within the very shadow of the Capitol, to give thanks for the passage of the Civil Rights Bill and to pledge Representatives of the churches themselves to do everything and of other organizations and within their power to prel)are agencies desirous of promoting their constituents to live up this worthy objective at the to the spirit as well as the letter ef this historic federal sta,lute. The distin­ lfUished partici­ pants in this unpreced'ented service-which wo uld have bee n literally u nth ink able less than a dec­ ade ago - had reason to be very proud of the role they had j 0 i n t I y played in bringing about passage of the Civil Rights Bill. As might have been expected, however, they were properly modest about their own accom­ plishments and, instead of pat­ ting themselves on the back, they apologized for being Johnny-come-latelies in the cru­ sade for interracial justice and pledged themselves to make up for lost time in the crucial days tha t lie ahead. The several prayers that were effered at this very impressive interreligious service were the yery opposite of pharisaical ill tone. Representatives of the major religious groups, in offering thanks to God for the passage of the Civil Rights Bill, did not pretend, like the Pharisee in the Gospel narrative, that they and their followers or constituents have been better than the rest of men on the matter of racial justice, but rather, like the Pub­ lican, they expressed contrition and regret for the past failures ef the churches and the church­ related agencies' and institutions and a firm purpose of amend­ ment. Dignity, Equality In summary, they said that the passage of the Civil Rights Bill is not the end but only the be­ ginning of their joint efforts as religious leaders to implement the teaching of their respective ehurches on the dignity and equality of all men regardless' of their racial origin or the color of their skin. This is all too obvious, of eourse, and, though it had al­ ready been said in another con­ text by the President of the United States and by other re­ sponsible public leaders since the passage of the Civil Rights Bill, it was well that it was said again, in a religious setting, by representatives of the churches, for it will be up to the churches and church-related organiza­ tions and institutions to take flte lead in preparing the Amer­ ican people to comply with the Civil Rights law and to go the law one better, 90 to speak, by YOluntarily developing in every eommunity in the United States an atmosphere of interracial ltarmony.

Participants will meet at 7 at North Eastern Avenue and Bed­ ford Street. The unit also plans a chicken barbecue and family outing for Sunday, Aug. 30 at Camp Tom Welch, Assonet.

NCWC Assumes Ca utiousAttitude On Prayer Issue

Tells Canadians Resp'ect Rig hts Of Others

WASHINGTON (NC) ­ Legal Department of the National Catholic Welfare Conference has adopted an attitude of caution and reserve toward the proposed constitu­ tional amendment to pennit Bible reading and prayers in the nation's public schools, the de­ partment's director had advised. William R. Consedine made the point in a statement sent to directors of Catholic bureaus of information in dioceses through­ out the country. . The statement accompanied issuance in pamphlet form of a series of articles written by George Reed, associate director of the department, on the prayer and Bible reading case. "The department continues to believe the present clauses in the Constitution are of incalcula­ ble benefit to religion," the Con­ sedine statement said. "The first amendment separates Church and State by prohibiting estab­ lishment of religion and also by prohibiting government inter­ ference with the free exercise of religion. "The government is thus un­ der a constitutional obligation to show special respect for the religious liberty of all citizens; forbidden to prefer one religion to another, or to prefer irreligion over religion." Add Confusion The statement said the House

Judiciary Committee hearings conducted by chairman Emanuel Celler of New York, "contrib­ uted to the confusion presented by the proposals themselves and provided added reason for cau­ tion." Among the principal Bible reading and prayer proposals was that sponsored by Rep. !<'rank J. Becker of New York, which would provide the con­ stitutional amendment to pennit school prayer. Catholic spokes­ men took different views in tes­ tifying before the committee. No position in the controversy was taken by the U. S. Catholic hierarchy. "There is too much uncertainty as to what sho.uld be none, let alone the possible ultimate effect on the existing guarantees," Consedine asserted.

Dominican Nuns Provide Family .living for Girls

CHICAGO (NC)-The house on Chicago's northwest side is like any other home with teen­ age girls. Rock 'n' roll records are stacked on a table. A wilt­ ing corsage wastes its sweetness in the refrigerator. Bobby pins, jars of cream and magazines are strewn across a dresser ~op. But this is not an ordinary home. The eight girls, aged 13 to 18, who live here are directed by two Dominican nuns. The home provides an unusual ex­ perience in family living for the girls who for one reason or an­ other, cannot stay with their parents. The gids go to school, hold jobs and have parties under the guidance of the Sisters who share the home with them. All the girls were referred there by the Catholic Home Bureau.

There must also be an effort to deter­ mine and explain, with the greatest possible clarity, the legitima,te aspirations of the nation."

THE ANCHOR­

Thurs., July 9,

1964

Continued from Page One Even more telling, perhaPS, are the comments of Southern legislators. Sen. Richard Russell of Georgia, their Senate leader, was blunt in his final speech be­ fore the Senate's historic June 10 cloture vote to cut off the anti-rights filibuster. .Expressing "profound sorrow" at the role of religious leaders, Russell said those who had thrown their support behind the bill included "cardinals, bishops, elders, stated clerks, common preachers, priests, and rabbis." Prelates, Seminarians Active On the CathoHc side, certain­ ly, the Senator's assessment was accurate. The list of active backers of the rights bill ran the gamut from princes of the Church to youthful seminarians, and included as well many lay­ men and Catholic organizations.

Cardinal Cu~hing Lauds Pas!=oge Of Q iahts Bill BOSTON (NC)-Richard Cardinal Cushing said here Senate passage of the civil rights bill removes "a shad­ ow that has stretched across our American life for 100 years." The Archbishop of Boston said government leaders have given "a' new dimension to American freedom" and it "remains for us to . see this blossom and bear ·fruit in every neighborhood and home." .The Cardinal said that "for those among our citizens still unconvinced of the necessity of legislation insuring civil rights for' all people, we must continue the firm and patient task of per­ suasion and education." "To be successful," he said, "even good laws must have the confidence and respect of the community they regulate; grudg­ ing or half-hearted compliance will only generate new bitter­ ness and, encourage civil unrest.-

Responding to a number of tiuestions, Cardinal· Bea declin­ ~ to predict whether the wock el the council could be conclud­ ed in the session that· begins in September.

Anglicans Propose

Separate Schools

WINNIPEG (NC) -Anglican churches from the provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan have agreed to study establishment of separate schools. About 100 delegates from churches in the provinces set up a study commission after lively debate at a meeting at which it was charged there is increasing secularism and lack of religious background in public schools. :Roman Catholics already have separate schools, supported par­ tjally by tax funds, in the two ~nadian provinces.

Some rights opponents sought

to paint this religious involve­ ment as a violation of an Amer­ kan tradition on the role of re­ ligion in public life. But this argument was rebut­ ted by one of the leading Cath­ oHc figures in the interreligious effort, Father John F. Cronin, S.S., assistant director of the Social Action Department, Na­ tional Catholic Welfare Confer­ ence.

Holy Father Cans Third Session Continued from Page One iness will be reduced to the barest essential problems. Some new questions will be reviewed in full-scale discussion; some unresolved schemata will not be reopened to full debate. but simple votes will be taken and the draft will be arranged ac­ cordingly but without open de­ bate. Schema 17-as yet untouched by debate-promises to be most interesting and crucial. Herein are contained many of the prob­ lems-called "modern" by some -which Christians, the world over, find difficulty in solving. Here the Fathers will be under the scrutiny of the whole world - especially the non-Catholic world, it would seem. Some' of the probable topics to be treate~ are: Peaee, Racial· Equality, Population "Explosion," Birth Control Problem, Problem of Unequal Distribution of World's Resources, Family Life, Individ­ ual Rights, etc.. Most of the m()re enthusiastic Fathers in the Council, iii public statements, have stated that they think at least one more 'session necessary-aft~r.this third ses­ sion. For the CQuncil to end with thee third, much material would have to be dropped and too many questions would ~­ main unresolved. Other ·Fathers think that the Council has already taken on too much material and the Church has already treated many of the questions in her ordinary teaching. It should be enough that those interested re­ turn to learn better what the Church has already taught. The Holy Father had originally expressed the hope that the third session would be the last. However, in sta'tements since the closing of the Second Ses­ sion, even he has not only lef,t the door open for further ses­ sion(s) but has hinted of the real possiJbility of further work for the Vatican Council. Since the attendance at the council is a real hardship on both bishops and dioceses, many

prelate!: have sought for other' ways in which the business of the Council could be adequately 'treated without the bishops go­ ing to Home. Some of the suggestions have been a postal-council where all the business would be treated by mail, a permanent senate of representatives of the world's episcopacy established in Rome which would immediately aid the P()pe and participate in run­ ning th(~ world-wide Church, a ftequently-convened co U n c i I . which '",ould pass judgements on the work of commissions (a council every 10 years), a new' form of government of the universal church patterned OR the Eastern synooal governme.nt. At prellE!nt, indications are that tltiH Third Session will not be the last of this Council. It ,might u'ell jell the questiOns .[lOW before the council and draw the general lines for redrafting . according to the majority opi~- . ion of the Fathers. Then a fourth llession could possibly be co~- , Yened tel, give final judgment Oft the que:,tions and activate the c!Ouncil decisions under the l~uidance of the Holy Father.

'Boys Love It, Parents Delighted'

Pilot Project for EXCel)tic»nal

Day Camp Termed SUlcc«ess

-

They were playing dodgeball on a court at St. Vincent de Paul Camp, North Westport, 13 boys casually at­ tired in shorts, sneakers, polo shirts. Backgrounded by green woods, enjoy­ ing the breezes of a perfect Summer day, they looked like any other gang of youngsters. But they weren't. "It took us a week to explain this game to them and get them to follow direc­ tions well enough to stand in a circle," said Joseph Ryan, during the Winter supervisor of special education for the Swansea school system and this Sum­ mer heading a pilot day camp program for exceptional boys: The Diocesan-sponsored program, using facilities of the North Westport camp, began last week and will con­ tinue through· Friday, July 17. "The boys love it and their parents are dl!­ lighted," summed up Mr. Ryan. For many of the youngsters, he explained, the camp, which follows a normal program as far as possible, has been their first introduction to, the woods and nature. Activities include hikes, nature rambles, singing, hand­ crafts, a daily chapel visit and games. The latter are carefully chosen to develop physical coordination, said Mr. . Ryan. Some boys have trouble walk­ inf{ and some cannot coordinate hand and eye movements. Games empha­ size practice of these skills. Splash Party A highlight of each day is a wading session. The boys do not as yet parti­ cipate in swimming with other camp­ ers, but enjoy splashing in a large plastic pool. "We get very wet as we supervise," said Mr. Ryan, "and they think that's very funny." Aiding with the program are John E. Kiley Jr., a teacher at Durfee High School, Fall River, a member of Sacred Heart parish; and David Turcotte, St. Thomas More, Somerset, and Thomas Dunn, Holy Name, Fall River. David and Thomas, junior counselors, are juniors at Bishop Stang High School. Mr. Ryan said that despite their youth they have developed an excel­ lent relationship with the campers and have learned quickly how best to handle each child. Assisting with handcrafts is Edward Haponik, principal of South School, Somerset. Items for the boys to make are extremely simple, said Mr. Ryan, but finished articles, such as comb and pencil holders, are neatly done. How do other campers react to this special group, which shares busses and some facilities? "There's been a good reaction," said Mr. Ryan, noting that boys have aided exceptional young­ sters with handcraft projects and

have in general been compa~ionable. "Our boys had a big adju ;tment to make in coming to camp," said Mr. Ryan. "They had to get usei to new surroundings, new people and totally new activities. They have done very well and we're pleased and encour­ aged." Next season, added the direc­ tor, it is hoped the camp se~sion will be extended and it will be possible to make some provision for !:irls. The program is the only one of its type in southeastern Massachusetts. Singing is an activity enthusiasti­ cally participated in by the ye,ungsters. They performed "Row, Row, Eow Your Boat" with vigorous gestures and sang "Old MacDonald" with appropri­ ate animal imitations. "They love animals," 'commented Mr. Ryan. "We visit the camp menagerie every day to see thl~ rabbits, goats, lambs and chickens." Ryan, a member of Holy Name par­ ish, Fall River, has for many years worked with exceptional chUdr,m as did his wife, Natalie, befo:re her narriage. Following the day camp session, he will spend six weeks at Palll Dever School working on a research project in the field of retardation. Excellent care is taken of the campers. "We often need a one to one ratio in worRing with. them" com­ mented Mr. Ryan. One boy, for in­ stance, has a tendency to stumble, and although he is encouraged 10 walk alone, there is always ~l counselor near him. "The boys'are never left alone," said the director. The youngsters, aged nine to 14, gather at Nazareth Hall in Fa:l River at Seach morning for transportation to camp, returning' a'bout 4:1'5. Some boys are students at Nazareth, others' are from public schools and some are tutored at home. "Some campers are sponsored by St. Vincent de Paul units in' their parishes," said Mr. Ryan. However, boys of ~Ill reli­ gions are accepted and it is still posi­ ble to register for the remaining week of camp. , In charge' of the entire project is Rev. Raymond W. McCarthy, DiOcesan Family Life Bureau director. "He's out here every day and thl~ childmn love him," said Mr. Ryan. Applications for the camp arE' avail­ able at Father McCarthy's office, 410 Highl'and Avenue, Fall Hiver. The tele­ phone number is 676-8M3. The camp is made pos:;ible by Catho­ lic Charities and, as one faithful contributor to· the yearly appeal says, "This is the sort of place I like to see my money go."
