ST. LOUIS (NC) - Ad­ vance registrations already nearing 1,600 indicate the 1964 Liturgical Week to be held here starting Monday, Aug. 24 will be the largest such gath­ ering since they were organized 25 years ago, Father David Thomas said. The advance registration is running almost three times greater than for any previous Liturgical Week, Father Thomas, local vice-president declared. He forecast a total registration of about 20,000 persons for the four-day convention. Last year's Philadelphia convention. drew some 13,000. Widespread interest in Cath­ olic liturgy reforms which will go into effect in the United States' later this year was cred­ ited by Father Thoma's for Ule record expectations. Theme for the week, "The Challenge of the Council: Per­ son, Parish, World," was in­ spired by the Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, enacted by the Second Vatican Council, Father Thomas said.

Conversion Issue Stirs Isra'el J·ERUSALEM (NC) - Strong support has been given in Is­ rael's parliament for a bill intro­ duced by the minister of justice that would prohibit use of "di­ rect persuasion" on minors to convert them to another reli­ gion, and would require con­ sent of both parents to conver­ sion of minors. Some speakers took the posi­ tion that the bill was only a first step that did not go 'far enough to solve the problem of mission­ ary activity in Israel. Avraham Shaki of the Nation­ al Religious party and Yaakov Katz of' the Ultra Orthodox Workers' party urged an out­ right ban on admission of any child to an institution in which instruction in another religion is given. Asks Court Approval Shaki contended that conver­ sions should not be ailowed even with parental consent, but ~hould require court approval as well. Mrs. Esther Raziel-Naor of the Nationalist party wanted an adoption law that prevents chil­ dren from being "ensnared by +he nets that are being cast for their souls." The danger of the missions lay not in conversion alone, she said, but in the alien values being instilled in chil­ 'dren's hearts.

Speaking to members of the

Christian Family Movement, the

Cardinal said he did not intend

to pronounce on such' issues.

"The natural characteristics of

marriage are not always easy to

determine and we all know

there is a great deal of discus­

sion today on matters which

pertain to the most intimate as­

pects of family life.

"I am not going to argue for

any of the different views on

this matter, because this is II
