BISHOP'S OFFICE DIOCESE OF. FALL RIVER .1'

. July 23, 1958 Dearly Beloved in Christ: By long tradition, the first Sunday of August is Peter's Pence Day in the Diocese of Fall River. Follow­ ing the ancient custom of our Catholic forbears, we make our offering of devotion' to the Holy Father on August 3rd. We reach out to him a sensible proof of our willingness to share his burdens, sustain his charities, and support his effort to achieve peace in our time. The weight of spiritual anxiety and respon­ sibility alone conti,nues heavy and hard to bear. We must not consent to have material worries added. We should not wan.t to shorten the reach of his fatherly solicitude. by plaCing cautious limits on the alms he dispenses. We must not permit the world to pass' criticism on us as heedless children of a benevolent father, indifferent to th.e fundamental loyalty that is ours of holding up his 'outstretched arms of prayer and charity. What we do by contributing personally to the support of the Father of Christendom marks the de­ gree of 'our gratitude to .God. What we do for him is an index of our willingness to bear one another's bur­ dens. It is a means of telling the world that we stand loyally by Christ's Vicar on earth, second to none among a faithful following the world over. God knows the world sorely needs lessons of spiritual loyalties and religious values. Let us not fail. to prove our filial affection for Pope Pius XII on Sunday next. Faithfully yours in Christ,

Holy Father Urges

The Holy Father urges Catholics during this novena to raise up public prayers for the suffering Church. He lists the following intentions for the prayers: that pastors who are kept from their flocks or who are impeded in the free exercise of their ministry may be reinstated as soon as possible; that the faithful,

in the uncertainty of doubt and who are weak may be strength­ ened by divine grace so that they may be ready and willing to suffer anything rather than break away from the Christian faith and Catholic unity;' that individual d.ioceses may have their own legitimate shepherd; that Chrlstian law may be freely promulgated in all regions and among all classes; that youth ia elementary and high schools, in workshops and fields may not be ensnared in the ideologies of Turn to Page Seventeen

Sister-Pilot Says Science Study Should Start in First Grade SAN FRANCISCO (NC) ­ Came the day when U. S. MiP' rines hit the beach in Lebanon and American jets flamed east­ ward toward undisclosed ren­ dezvous points in the boiling Middle East. On the same day a group of newspaper reporters here sat glued through an hour and a half press conference, listening to the observations of a Franciscan Sister of Christian Charity. Sister Mary Aquinas, who is science supervisor for the Di­ ocese of Green Bay, Wis., proved to be good copy. She is a regis­ tered pilot - and can fly jet planes, no less - and she is a science teacher. She observed: - I f it's scientists this nation needs to win the next war, American schools can produce better ones than Russia. And ahe is ready, willing and able to .how how it can be done. -.War or no war, it's high time that John Q. Public Jr. was taught in the terms of the 'age In which he lives - the age' of jet flights, guided missiles and , the greatly increased knowledge of God's natural wonders. "Every subject in the school curriculum, and that includes religion," she said, "can and should reflect science and the aie age." Shows Techniques' To Catholic and public sl:hool teachers alike here at the Uni­ versity of San Francisco sum~ mer school Sister Aquinas dem­ onstrated her techniques for un­ locking the world of science for

Eucharistic Congress To Use Esperanto NEUVILLE, Quebec (NC)­ The world interlanguage, Espe­ ranto, probably will be used at several meetings at the IntE:.,r­ national Eucharistic Congress in Munich, Germany, in 1960, it was stated here at the 48th North American Esperanto Congress. Esperanto is an artificial lan­ guage whose vocabulary is based essentially on words common to the chief European laguages. Dr. William Solzbacher of Washington, D. C., said at the meeting here that His Eminence Joseph Cardinal Wendel, Arch-" bishop of Munich and 'Freising, had recently discussed with a Catholic Esperanto committee the details of plans for the use of Esperanto at the Eucharistic Congress. He noted that· successful meetings in Esperanto had been hold at three previous Interna­ tional Eucharistic Congresses: in Budapest (1938), Barcelona (1952) and Rio de Janeiro (1955). Dr. Solzbacher said further arrangements for the use of Esperanto at the Munich con­ gress will be discussed at the 27th International Catholic Es-' peranto Congress, to be held in Vienna the last week of July. Among me~bers on the honor­ ary committee for the congress' are Auxiliary Bishop Joseph Streidt of Vienna and Dr. Hein­ rich Drimmel, Austrian Minis­ ter of Education. Dr. Solzbacher stated that "an estimated 12,000 to 13,000 per­ sons from all over the world will attend conferences and summer school sessions this year at which Esperanto will be the only or the' principal lan'guage used."

young minds~and making the youngstel's like it. Sister Aquinas has been a teacher since 1910. She has a .bachelor's degree from the Cath­ olic University of America in Washington (1926) and a mas­ ter's degree in electronics from the University of Notre Dame (1942). . She learned to fly a plane in 1934 so she eQuId teach aeronau­ tics and she took 168 hours of Army' Signal Corps training so . she could teach radio. She taught navigation, meterology, main­ tenance, rules imd communi<;a-· tions under authority of the Civil Aeronautics Administra­ tion at the Catholic University in Washington in 1943 and' 1944. She has conducted classes at Air Force bases throughout the. U. S., and last year received the Air Force Association Award for "outstanding contributions . to national secutity and world peace.'" Her unofficiai reward for this honor was a ride in a T-33 jet. trainer last September. How c'an young Americans be made science conscious? She ob­ served: "Expose them to science in the right way and in. the right amount, and I'll guarantee that they'll find it the most engross­ ing of all their subjects. Science study should start in the first grade. "It can· be worked into' every subject in the curriculum. "Ideally, I'd say 20 minutes a day should be devoted .to it. At ,a minimum, '60 minutes, a week. I've had some teachers, tell me , that they allotted only 20 min­ utes a week to science. No wonder the Russians are ahead of us!'; . ' The prime techniques in Sis­ ter Aquinas' system are: work- . shop classes, with student mod­ erators handling routine tasks so' the teacher' can be free to teach, guide and assist;. empha­ . sis on "learning by doing"; weekly tests, "preferably on' Mondays so that they won't use the weekend to forget all you've been trying to get across"; merit point grading so "the student who flunks has only himself, not the teacher, to blame."

History of Tension-Causing Iraq Goes Back to Biblical Times

MARYKNOLL-Maybe Macy'• doesn't tell Gimbels, but reli­ gious societiell do cooperate in recruiting vocational prospects, a check of the personnel list of one society reveals. A recent check of the person­ nel roster of 766 Maryknoll priests shows that 140 of them have come from Jesuit high schools and colleges and another 3.0 have come from Christian Brother schools. ,Compiled by Father Robert E. Sheridan, Maryknoll Missioner from Chicago, Ill" the survey. also indicates that many voca­ tions come from public schools. A total of 35 per cent or .266 of the Maryknollers attended a public school at one time or another. The ten leading supI1liers to Maryknoll in the order of the number of vocations contributed are: (1) Cathedral College of New York, (2) St. Mary's Sem­ inary, Baltimore, Md., (3) Bos­ ton College; (4) Boston College High School, (5) St. Charles, Catonsville, Md., (6) Holy Cross College, (7) Cathedral College of Brooklyn, (8) Loras College, Dubuque, .Iowa, (9) 'Regis High School of New York, (10) Ford­ ham University. The survey also shows that Maryknollers have come from 207 different Catholic high schools, 54 colleges, 34 minor seminaries, and 23 major semin­ aries located in 43 different states throughout the U.

T hat mig h t have been ex­ pected, for Mr. MeL a v e r t y, though never rightly appre­ ciated and never in the best seller class, has shown himself a novelist of consistently' high calibre. His books present authentic human beings in natural situations, .credible plots, and a compas-, sionate view-in-depth of the human predicament. -His latest is exceptional in having as its central character a man .' 50 years of age. This i!l Tom Magee, assistant to the sta­ tion master in the Irish town of Rockcross. Tom is a person of probity, a hard worker who keeps the station neat and does wonders with the flower garden at home. . . When we meet him, he in wel­ eoming his S9n Christy, who is returning on vacation from the seminary. Christy is a sub­ deacon, and after ,his ordination in another year will be posted to Nigeria. He has come home early, for his mother is ill. How ill, he has ,not been told, lest he be dis-. turbed at examination time. Tom says to him,. "Christy, son, your poor mother is' fair through." The fact is that she is dying.' the plea'sant cottage, now shadowed and hushed, Christy sees for himself that his mother is at the gates of death. Tom Makes Change About her bed, he is joined by his three sisters: Alice, the youngest, still at home; the wor­ ried and snappish Julia, ,married to a big-talking wastrel; the sad Mag, ,married to a 'cle'rk whose , health is feeble. Another attend­ ant on the dying Mary Magee is her younger sister Brigid, a mas­ terful spinster who keeps a pros­ perous shop and d9tes on her pekinese. With Mary's death, the book's focus is squarely upon her hus­ band'. For years he has wanted to leave Rockcross. But' Mary has held out against a move, con­ tending that it was in the chil­ dren's interest for the 'family to say where it/was. Now T.om is free to do as he choo~es. Or is he? Christy, of course, will soon be leavinj{ the country. But Alice is yet to find her place in life; Julia, periodic­ ally getting money from her father, is dependent on him still; and Mag's state is unstttled because of her husband's sickli­ ness. Then there is Brigid, de­ termined that, .after a dl)cent interval, Tom shall marry her. - Christy, JUli~, and Brigid strenuously resist his determina­ tion to make a change and wh'en, nevertheless, he seeks one, Julia takes action.

Priest Says United ,States Initi~tive in World Affairs Demands More A,ggressive Policy Toward Soviets NEW YORK (NC)....,...A promi­ nent Catholic theologian has urged the United States to adopt a more aggressive policy towa~d the Soviet Union to "seize and retain the initiative in world aflail·s." , Father John Courtney Murray, S.J" declared that "it would be prudent even to create situations of risk for the Soviet Unio~:­ .ituations in which the risk would be too great for it to take," "We may' be sure," Father Murray said, "that the Soviet leadership will not risk the debacle of the World Revolution through a major war tor the sake of anything less than the soil of the ,homeland or the Revolution." Father Murray's statement was contained in a pamphlet on U. S. foreign policy, published here under the title of "Foreign Policy and the Free Society" by the Fund for the Republic. It made its appearance as the Mid­ east crisis was reaching a crucial point. Father Murray, professor of theology at Woodstock (lVld.) College, also insisted that the United States must cease to make "survival" the exclusive iBsue'in its military policy.

3) "Russia is unique as an imperialism ... (Soviet Imper­ ialism) is a loyalty to the Social­ ist ReVOlution; it is 'also a loy­ alty to' the homeland of the Revolution, Russia ... If there must be a single phrase to sum up the intentions of Soviet imperialism, it would be far better to speak of 'world revo­ lution' than of 'world domiil­ 'ation.' " 4) "The Soviet Union ... is the inheritor both of Tsarist im­ perialism and of mystical pan­ slavist messianism ... commun­ ism, whether in theory or in practice, is not a legacy of West­ ern history .. '. Essentially, it came out of the East, as a con­ scious apostasy from the West."

t~e United States to pursue a policy of "disengagement." Com­ munist imperialism, he pointed out, "continually probes for every vacuum of power and for every soft spot of purpose. This is why 'disengagement' as an American policy could not be other than disastrous." On the contrary, he main­ tained, "only the very opposite policy is safe-a policy of con­ tinuous engagement at every point, on all levels of action, by both tactical and strategic· moves." He continued: '~Soviet doc­ trine as ,a whole dictates a policy of maximum security and mini­ mum risk. Risks can and must be minimum because the dialec­ tic of history decrees that the capitalist world, though still powerful, is decaying . . . The Soviet Union cannot be pro­ voked into taking risks that ex­ ceed the minimum; for it does 'not a~ under external provoca­ tion, but under an internal dynamism ... "We may safely invert the Soviet proportions. Our policy should envisage a minimum of security a'nd a maximum of risk. Only by such a policy can we seiz~ and retai'n the initiative in world affairs . . . Moreover, i( would be prudent even to create situations of risk for the Soviet Union-'-situationsin which the risk would' be too great' for it to take."

Soviet Doctrine Considered as a nation, Father Murray stated, Russia is not ne­ cessarily hostile to .tllis countrr. Insteas{, "only Soviet doctrine explains the peculiar nature of Soviet imperialism and shows it to be unappeasable in its dyna­ mism," )\e said.

But to Mother Alicia, the real significance of the credit unions lies not in their accounts and ledgers, but in their develop­ ,ment of native leadership and community life. "And they have brought the people closer to the Church," she said. "They have come to know that the Church is interested ill their social and economic wei. fare, as well as in the salvatioll of their ilOuls." ' Mother Alicia's' first credit union, organized the same year she arrived in Dominica's capi­ tal of Roseau, now has more than 1,500 members -and has made close to 3,000 loans total­ ing nearly a quarter of a million dollars. It stemmed from the activities of the Catholic Social Ce~ter, of which she had been placed in charge. After eigpt months of study, discussion and argument, the first ct'edit union among members 'oC the social center began with a capital oC $600 ac­ cumulated from their savings.

Sodalists Hold Biweekly Meetings Throughout Summer 'Season Dur'ing the summer months, all the Sodalists "of the five Catholic high schools An Fall River plus 51. Anthony from New Bedford, assemble at the Jesus Mary Academy for their Sodality meetings for they realize that the Sodalit.y is not an activity but a Way of Life. Those who are really interested find the; means to attend every meeting. The attendance is really gratifying and Our Lady must certainly shower her blessings on' those teen-agel's who willingly sacrifice two hours every two weeks to discuss subjects that tend to help better them and their environment. At the first meeting such subjects as Modesty, Entertainment, Companionship, and Unity were discussed. A survey was sug-

ges,ted concerning 'the wearing of the scapular medal. At'the secona meeting a report "was given in each Unit and now plans are being put into action to remind the people of the city of the importance of the scapu­ lar and of the promises Our Lady made to St. Simon Stock for those who would wear her brown scapular (the medal may re,place the cloth scapular). The next project the Sodalists attempt to undertake is one of great importance also since it deals. with Stop Shopping on Sunday, a subject Our Holy Father has insisted upon more than once. To create interest for these summer meetings five officers have been elected, one from each of the Catholic high schools of the city. It is hoped that e"very one who will have attended these gatherings will derive much benefit and return to her or his respective Sodality in September eager to continue the work begun with so much enthusiasm.

Secular Homes

Hurt Vocations

. By Most Rev. Robert J. Dwyer, D.D. Bishop of .Reno

: NOTRE DAME (NC) - The greatest handicap to the accept­ ance of God's call to. the priest­ hood or religious life is. the secularization of Catholic homeS, J3ishop' Albert R. Zuroweste .of Belleville declared here.In the keynote address .at the 11th Vocation Institute, the prel.­ ate stressed that the home hall the first place in fostering voc~ tions. . "It must be Christian, not halJ­ Christian and half-pagan," be said. He' criticized parent.s wh~ promote dating and dances among youngsters in the seventh and eighth grades. Such pr~ mature social activity, Bishop Zur'oweste observed, lessens the likelihood of religious vocations and "must be stopped." , Bishop Zuroweste told more than' 200 priests, Brothers, Sis­ ters' ,and' laymen attending the institute s'essions that they must not' co'ncentrate too much on an individual in promoting religiouS vocations. "Our efforts should be e»­ tended to 'all' who come under our care provided they seem possessed of the moral, mental and physical attributes demand'-. ed.by the Church," he said. "And it ·is well to remember that our personal, ,lives, '~our adheren~ to rule, our practice' of virtues, esp~cially .. chari~y, our o~ d.~~n~e, .our loyalty to Churc~ and, s.uperiors speak louder than W;~J;ds,. ·andhave more lasting eff~"ts than sermons."

This is a tale' of tw'o~cities; The first city is bathed in the'. mellow golden' glow' of art Idealized past.

Asserts Movie Discussion Club Experiment Success

God Love You

A large assem bl:y of secular school teachers, stu-' dents, and par­ ents took part and things werf,! lively. . M 0 vie pro­ ducer: Jerry Wald of 20th Cen­ tury~Fox spoke on the problems of. film making and Geoffrey Shurlock, head of the Movi,e Code, told how the codl: wor,ks. QUler speakers, each expert in his own field, covered various aspects of Hollywood picture production. Even secular. film "'p eriticism was dealt with - and by a Catholic! The experiment, to be:, devel­ oped on a nation-wide scale, was a big succds, Students, particu­ larly, livened up the discussions alth9ugh most of their questions and attitudes took opposite gear­ in'g to what one might expect if we were to get our Catholic Movie clubs going. • If invited, I daresay the movie people would .gladly carry their workshop i~ea into Catholic high schools and college:!, but if they did the weight of their arguments would not be thrQwn en the ,side of the National Le­ gion of Decency about which our Catholic' youths know so little.' . Catholics Do Nothinc, 'By enthusiastic, organiitl1dand ~Kpert persuasion the Hollywood film makers are now out to oesell" ,American youth on 'their own points of view. Meanwhile, as' Catholics, we do • little ,-or nothing to spread our own,.even among', Catholic youths. ' This Motion Picture Industry Workshop 'will propose, among other ideas, the thought that moral'ity o,n the screen -is largely , a matter of public sanction; that the best and only justifiable form of'moral restraint, or "cen­ sorship," is public opinion or public reaction which change constantly "with the times." How do I know this? ,These are views repeatedly voiced to me by the people who are g!)ing to ....n theWor.kshops. Too Many Hitch-Hikers The "sameness" of screenplays about which many of you have , eomplained, is the result of "too many hitch-hikers in motion .., pictures and TV, who ride on ideas started by someone else." Producer Jerry Wald dl"plored Ibis type, of "trend-thinking"

60 YEARS A JESUIT: Father Gerald C. T1'ea'cy, S.J. of New York, former World, W<11' I chaplain and noted pamphleteer observeR the 60th anniversary as a Jesuit on Aug~ ~,<"A promi­ nent writer and lecturer, he is widely known for his in­ terP:r:etat;ons of the Papal ency~lical>: Nr. Photo.

Wald said .that since "The Vikings" was filmed by Kirk Douglas, he has himself received "at least 14 scripts on the same subjeCt." To find success in movies and TV, aspiring young­ sters must learn to think 'in terms of initiating tren~s, not following them, Wald argued. This is: good 'advice even though ,Mr. Wald him"self' no sooner read the glowing box office reports on his own "Pey­ ton Rlace" than he rushed to the sets where his follow-up film" "The Long' Hot Summer" was in 'the making. "Give it the 'Pey.., ton' touch," he urge.d his boys. Trend Thinking The Metalious story, was set in New England, of course, while "Long Hot Summer" was in the South. "Peyton Place" had Lana Turner:, Diane Varsi, Russ Tam­ olyn and 'Hope Lange up top while "Summer" co-starred Joanne Woodward, Paul New­ man, Orson Welles ~nd Anthony ' Franciqsa. You-may agree that as writers, William Faulkner and Grace Metalious have little in com­ mon, apart from a certain, pre­ occupation with sexual passions. Still the publicity blurbs and advertisements for "Long Hot_ Summer" were designed to sug­ ,gest that, for its bold treatment /of sex and violence among the American rural set, this seco'nd Wald production deserved the, same en'thusiastic public re­ sponse' as "Peyton Place." What was this if not "trend thinking?" . Does producer Jerry Waldmean to argue that it is - okay for. ,anyone in Hollywood to copy one film from another: as long as he copies only from =his own?; "Sameness" in the movies is the same whether or not, the' same people are responsible for' it. ' ..

SClenee and Uncommon Fl,. ,Speaking of movie cycles there was Universal's "Incred­ ible Shrinking Man" which stretched Hollywood's 'money­ bags by 'a vast fortune at the popular-priced theaters. It was shortly imitated in reverse by "The Amazing Colossal Man" then "The Astounding She Mo~-' ster" and "Attack of the 50 .:Foot Woman." , The only truly. astounding fact about sush films as these is that ·they let' imagination run wild from the laughable to the ludi­ crous and still draw so many people that Ho~lywood cooks up others like them. Now 20th Century-Fox has made a horror-science-fiction picture 'on a fairly elabor.ate style. Titled "The Fly," it de­ scribes the plight of a young . scientist (AI Hedison) who hav­ ,ing discovered how to disinte­ grate and' re~illtegrate living matter, tries it on himself. Unfortun'ately there is a fly' buzzing around at the time. In the re'-integration process man and fly somehow get their atoms terribly mixed lip: ,The fly gets the human face. and voice. The man still retains, human iriteili­ gence but gets the head and one limb of a fly. It is cleverly done but one marvels most at Vincent Price and, Herbert Marshall. They see it all happen and have to convince us that they believe it!

There are two things we seek to make young again.

And then, the old in the United States who , have only ~he memori,es of all the honeyed treasures of the body spent and no 'new life to show. Joys are not outside; they are on the inside.

This is the best Wl'Y to show your love for souls. Cut away a huge chunk of egotism and selfishness by making a sacrifice for the Holy Father, that he may' bring grace to the souls of the East.

Good Progress

In Reading SAN FRANCISCO (NC) -What Americans read to­ day, America will reap to.­ morrow. The future of the United States as a free society is bound up inextricably with the intelligent use of good books. Such is the opinion of Father Andrew L. Bouwhuis, S.J., of St. Peter's College, Jersey City, N. J., who is serving with four committees attending the con­ vention here of the American Library Association. The Jesuit Father said in an interview that: I) "The whole U. S. education picture is tied in with the library program ..." 2) "There is a strong move­ PRESENTS GIFT TO PARISH: Rev. Herbert A.

Yep, I guess an odd-ball. So many things in our modern world give me' a pain. I don't like the movies. J don't like the plays. I don't like most of the \ magazines ~nd books. I don~t like lot of things about the newspape,rs, And I'm afraid 1 would dis­ thrill, and when to applaud. like TV if it weren't so In the language of the boxing frankly nearly nothing. It ring, all the punches are tele­ graphed-if you can use the is .difficult to dislike noth­

lIluch pretend to be .anything. I don't like the movies because often they are indece.nt, or at least suggesti ve, or sometimes immodest, or at very least clrooly.

Sometimes, I will grant you, they do succeed in rising to the stature of being merely silly. Am I exaggerating? Oh I sup­ pose so, but not much. Not very lIluch. I don't like the plays be­ eause the legitimate theater lJRlells of 'decomposi.tion. It is dead and unburied. Nobody that .[ can recall has written a drama worth a tinker's dam for years.

I don'f like the magazines because at best they are frothy, at worst they are indecent and Impure, and by and large they are the most emptyheaded pub­ lications ever printed on this earth.

What they consider deep and heavy is barely better than'irn-' becilic, and what they mean to be light is heavy-handedly arch and tiresome.. They go in for sex but their understanding of sex is adolescent. They··try their hand at humor but have long' since forgotten what laughter is. And when they turn' serious they be­ come preposterous.

Consider what. these books do to minds. 'Compare that with the· nobilities, the aspirations and the down-to-earth goodness instilled into -read~rs by writers' of the past. Then, I think, you will know what I mean. People used to be depicted as people. Now they are depicted . as animals drooling after one another. Our newspapers have a basic­ soundness, Newspaper people do care about getting the facts ac­ curately for readers. . But they a're forgetting that men and women are entitled. to their good l,1ames. They debase themselves with what they call cheesecake. They' publish such lunacies as horoscopes. They are much too quick to . shrug off their responsibilities and take refuge in;the mindless excuse . that .they are' giving people what the people want.

Vatican Radio Beams Broadcasts To Priests Behind Iron Curtain VATICAN CITY (NC)-Nine times each week the studios of Vatican Radio become a semin­ ary for the students and priests of the Church of Silence. If, as you approach 51. Peter's Basilica from the front, you look over and beyond Michelangelo's great dome, you will see it flanked against the sky by the aerials of Radio Station HVJ. The view provides a contrast between the marvels of two ages, one the Christian application of art and architecture, the other the Christian application of mod­ ern technology. " The dome is a symbol" of the long doctrinal arm of the Faith. The aerials are symbols of the new and effective ethereal arm of the Church, 'which is Vatican Radio. It reaches over all "cur­ tains," real and ideological, to preserve contact with Rome. Thus nine Latin broadcasts go ou t each week, especially de­ signed for and beamed to priests and seminarians behind the Iron Curtain. The broadcasts bring them important religious news, keep them up-tO-date on pon­ tifical documents and refresh their memory on pasto'ral the­ ology. Refugees Speak Frequently these programs have speakers who are refugee priests from religious persecu­ tion. One, a Russian priest, has become the regular narrator on Vatican Radio for programs beamed to his native land. Al­ though this program, begun in 1951, is closely monitored by the communists, there is every rea­ son to believe that it is getting through. Father Theodoric. Zubek, a Frandscan priest who escaped from a communist concentra­ tion camp in 1951, writes: "Against the falsehoods of the communist radio, Vatican Radio spreads the voice of truth. I say

Prayer Novena Continued from Pa&,e One materiaiism, atheism and hedon­ ism; that the roads of truth may open everywhere and no one will place obstacles in its way, and that missionaries may return as soon as possible to their people. Ask Forgiveness "Mayall faithful implore these things of the divine Mother," the Pontiff adds.. "But 1c~t them not forget to ask for forgiveness for the same perse­ cutors of the Christian religion in keeping ~ith the impulse of that charity for which the Apostle of the Gentiles did not hesitate to Say 'bless those who persecute you'." The Pope, in the encyclical, notes that only in Christian principles can men establish a just society. He points out that "a state without religion cannot have moral rectitude or order." The pope singles out two facts in the world that give him anxiety. One is the f8ct that many countries do not give Christian principles and pre­ cepts due consideration. He re­ fers especially to films, televi­ sion presentation, and publica­ tions which are morally danger­ ous. Union With Rome The other concern is the pres­ sure brought to bear on the !faithful and clergy ill some countries to break their union with Rome. In this regard he quotes the words of 51. Cyprian: "You can pluck a ray of the sun, but the unity of the light is, not divided; you can tear a branch from a tree, but it can no longer bear fruit; you can stop up a stream from its source, but it will dry up." The Pope also warns in the encyclical that the powerful weapons now at man's 'disposal make possible "universal ex­ termination." He warns that not only the defeated but the victors and the whole of humanity can be' dragged down and s4bmerged in universal ext.ermination by the inhuman power of new weapons discovered by human ~~"'

Deplomatic Ties Apart from Vatican Radio's transmissions by voice, there is the station's telegraphic depart-, ment which ties the entire world more closely to Rome through the offices of the nunciatures and apostolic delega tions. From the 1,100-year-old Leonine Tow­ er, around which the Vatican radio facilities were built, coded communications are sent to, and received from, the Holy See's diplomatic representatives. The outside world is brought even more intimately into union with the Vatican by a network of permanent radio outlets througout Vatican City and St. Peter's Basilica, A radio outlet, appearing very much like a wall socket can be found in every important room of the Vatica'n buildings so that almost. every part of the Vatican City'is a potential broadcasting stUdio. 30-Mile Radius Coml" ',g with these' for. greater flexibility are two fully furnished mobile transmitting' units, ,equipped with recording devic'es an,d having a broadcast relay radius of 30 miles. They pick up broadcasts in the basil­ icas and churches of Rome and at major religious gatherings. Master of this ethereal ~arm of' the Church is boyish looking Father Anthony Stefanizzi, S,J., who acquired much of his radio knowledge in the United States. The 41-year-old Neopolitan' was: well on his way to his specialized field with a degree in philosophy and a doctorate in physics even before, he was ordained in 1946. From 1949 to 1950 he did re­ search work in cosmic rays un­ der direction .of Vicor F: Hess, Nobel Prize-winner, at Fordham University. After teaching phil­ osophy and science at the ,Gre­ gorian University in Rome for two years, he was assigned, his present position as Director of Vatican Radio' in 1953.

PONTIFF AND HIS ARTIST: The only artist to paint Pope Pius XII from life, Leonard Boden, a Scotsman and a non-Catholic, is shown with His Holiness following the pre­ sentation of the portrait at the Vatican on the Pope's name­ day. The artist described the Pope as "a wonderful sitter;' and was greatly impressed by "the beauty and eloquence of his hands." NC Photo.

Works 50 Years for Holy See ROME (NC) - His Eminence Cardinal Tisserant, Dean of the Sacred College of Cardinals, .has celebrated the 50th anniversary of his arrival in Rome to work for the Holy See. A reception attended by many import~nt lay and Church digni­ taries was held at the St. Eugene Institute here in honor of the 74­ year-old prelate. A native of Nancy, France, Cardinal Tisserant has devoted almost his enti;oe life to t.he st.udy of oriental culture. At 20 he went to Jer'usalem and in the Domini­ can Convent of St. Stephen per­ fected his biblical knowledge. Two years later he was at the Catholic Institute of Paris, pre­ paring for degrees in Hebrew, Arabic, Syriac, Assyrian and Ethiopian. A few months after his ordina­ tion at Nancy, on Aug. 4, 1907,

he was called immediately to Rome as keeper of oriental manuscripts in the Vatican Li­ brary, and professor of Assyrian at the Roman Sl"minary. . With the exception of an in­ terval during World War I, Car­ dinal Tisserant has worked for the Holy See ever since, first in the Vatican Library and later as a Cardinal member' of various Roman congregations.

There followed a .couple of lean years, but in 1956 his fortunes changed for the better and Paul began to roll. That year his earnings tot ale d $7679. His first to u r victory came last Summer when he led the field in the Car 1 in g Open. A second in the Flint Open and another first in Montreal's Labatt Open capped Harney's hot streak and earned for him golfdom's "most improved pro" title. -:-The long ball hitting ex-Crusader has continued to excel and off his performances this year he will easily better his 1957 winnings. Paul celebrated his 29th birthday last week by carding a second round 66 in the InsuranCe City Open at Wethersfield, <::tnn. He has indeed come a long way since he and brother Lolli used to battle it out for the caddy title at Tatnuck Country Club. The current Middle Eastern crisis, with its attendant international implications, lends i,,creased stature to the U. S.-Russia- -dual meet scheduled for Moscow July 27-28. For a time it was extremely doubtful that the U. S. team would be permitted to go, but the squad was given the green light by the State Department last Saturday. The meet results are expected to follow preced.llt with the Americans piling up sufficient points in the dash and middle distance competition to offset acknowledged Russian superiority in the gruelling long distance and weight events. It is felt that the U. S. 'cushion will be sufficient enough, also, to more than compensate for the advaritage which the Russian women are expected to compile. The setting for the games is not unlike that which existed' in Berlin in 1936 when Germany was host for the Olympic games. The Nazi state was then in its ascendancy, steadfastly propounding the fallacious doctrine of Aryan superiority. It was in these games that Hitler's racial philosophy was fractured initially.
