Like everyone else in the fall River Diocese, Rev. Kenneth J. Delano held his breath last weekend as the astronauts landed on the moon and again as the first man set foot on its surface. But unlike most of us, he was, as a member of the Lunar International Observers Network, an active contributor to the success of the historic mission. This chain of moonwatchers throughout the world scanned the lunar surface throughout the Apollo mission for flares or glows indicating volcanic actiyity. These were reported to Houston mission con-

trol for possible confirmation by the astronauts. "An observer in West Germany saw a glow in the vicinity of the crater Aristarchus last Saturday afternoon," said Father Delano. "It was confirmed by the astronauts, the first time we've had on the spot confirmation of an earth observation." The Fall River priest was deeply disappointed that cloudy skies permitted him a total of only 25 minutes moonwatching during the Apollo flight. But his astronaut-connected assignment is by no means over. Like other members of the international lunar network, he's been re-

quested to scrutinize the moon with special care until Sunday, Aug. 3. He will report any sightings of "transient lunar phenomema" to the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory in Cambridge, which will check such reports with readings from the seismograph left by Armstrong and Aldrin on the moon surface. With scientists throughout the world, Father Delano agrees that the moon landing signalled the "beginning of a whole new era for the human race." Although Turn to Page Nineteen

Values, Nixon Plan But Supports Life WASHINGTON (NC)-An official of the United States Catholic Conference has called President Nixon's message to Congress on family planning and population growth "a positive and constructive approach to the problem."

ative in placing population questions in a broader perspective than birth control alone. At the same time, Father McHugh said, "basic to our decisions on population questions must be a strong concern for the dignity of man and the value of human life." .In his message to Congress the President called for a substantial increase in government support of family planning programs in this country and abroad. He also proposed establishment of a CQmmission on Popu-

mendations. Father McHugh said creation of such a commission "can lead to a new analysis of population Growth and the American Future to consider the implications of demographic trends in the U. S. and to make recommendations. Father McHugh said creation of such a commission "can lead to a new analysis of population problems in a broadened and more positive perspective." He also said that the emphasis in the presidential message on research "correlates with the recent decision of the American bishops to estabiish a special Foundation on Human Life to encourage research in the rhythm method of fertility control."

He said the purpose of celibacy is "the complete, total, unreserved, absolute dedication of a man's life to the service of the Church."


Danger Bishop Tanner confessed he was afraid the Church, because of the decline of the use of Latin in modern theological works, was "in daJlger of becoming a hodgepodge of little separate linguistic groups around the world." He said, due to the trend away from Latin, "the interchange of ideas will be very noticeably slowed down." He pointed out that the lise of one tongue and the maintenance of 1,500 years of ,theological continuity was what made the Catholic Church catholic. He urged the seminarians to keep this in mind when they resume their studies in the Fall. Bishop Tanner, at a luncheon with 20 diocesan seminariaps, de-

Emphasizing the importance 0 the development of a personal spirituality in the life of the priest, Bishop Tanner warned: "If the priest isn't the possessor of a deep and profound spirituality, he can't transmit anything to his busy parishioners, who are doing a thousand things." The bishop said he was ,"distressed today by popluar magazines that would make you believe that nothing happened (in the Church) until 1962 and that until Vatican II started, the Church was practically helpless." He urged seminarians' not to neglect the traditional sources in the development of Christian thought, and recommended they read as many works of. the Church Fathers as possible, "certainly Aquinas's 'Summa: from cover to cover."

The proposal has already been rejected by North Vietnam arid the National Liberation Front (NLF). Thieu suggested six principles to govern national elections in which opponents of the government could participate: The National Liberation Front (NLF), the political arm of the Viet Cong, could participate in the elections if it renounced violence; An electoral commission to insure equal opportunities i'n the elections could be set up and could include representatives of the NLF; An international body should supervise the elections; Outlaws Communism TO HOLY LAND: Bishop HarThe timing and conditions of old Perry, auxiliary of New the elections could be discussed ,Orleans, is shown as he left with those opposing the Saigon New, York leading an inter-- government; The government will abide by faith, inter-racial, pilgrimage to the results of the elections. the Moly land.

President Urges Expanded Family Planning Program WASHINGTON (NC)-An expanded program on birth control and family planning, to be available within five years to American women of child bearing age in low income categories, has been recommended to Congress in a special message by President Nixon. "Clearly, in no cir- report in one year. The Presiwho gave no estimates of cumstances will the activi- dent, increased spending involved, emties associated with our phasized that additional research

pursuit of this goal be allowed to infringe upon the religious convictions or personal wishes and freedom of any individual, nor will they be allowed to impair the absolute right of all individuals to have such matters of conscience respected by public authorities," the President asserted. . He proposed that Congress establish a "Commission on Population Growth and the American Future" to make recommendations in three areas - probable trends of U. S. population growth and internal migration between now and the year 2000; resources required to deal with anticipated growth and ways in which the population growth may affect activities of federal, state and local governments. In his 5,000-word document, the President said in the United States alone the population will increase nearly 100 million to a total of more than 300 million by the year 2000. He pointed to the potential impact of the global population if governments, private agencies and the United Nations fail to begin dealing now with the coming problems. Stresses Consequences President Nixon opined that in the United States now there are nearly five million women who "do not have adequate access to family planning assistance." . The President quoted statistics to "illustrate the dramatically increasing rate of population growth" on a worldwide basis. He noted that in 1830 there were one billion people on earth, in 1930 there were two billion, and now there are 3.5 billion. He said. "It is likely the earth will contain over seven billion human beings by the end of this century." Stressing the consequences of the expected population increase in this country, the President said if this country is to accommodate the anticipated 100 million persons by the year 2000 in new communities "we would have to build a new city of 250,000 persons each month from now until the end of the century." Research Essential The President suggested that the commission to handle population growth problems should include two members each of the House and the Senate plus an unspecified number of experts. He proposed that the commission have two years to prepare a final report, with an interim

on birth control methods of all types would not have to await the commission report: First, increased research is essential. It is clear, for example, that we need additional research on birth control methods of all types and the sociology of population growth: Immediate Action "Second, we need more trained people to work in population and family planning programs, both in this country and abroad: I am therefore asking the Secretaries of State, Labor, Health, Education and Welfare, and Interior, along with the Administrator of the Agency for International Development and the Director of the Office of Economic Opportunity to participate in a comprehensive survey of our efforts to attract people to such programs and train them properly. "Third, the effects of population growth on our environment and on the world's food supply call for careful attention and immediate action. "Fourth, it is clear that the domestic family planning services supported by the Federal Government should be expanded and better integrated. Both the Department of Health, Education and Welfare and the Office of Economic Opportunity are now involved in this important work, yet their combined efforts are not adequate to provide information and services for all who want them." Serious Challenge ' Underscoring the importance of action now in facing up to the problem, President Nixon told Congress: "One of the most serious challenges to human destiny in the last third of this century will be the growth of population. Whether man's response to that challenge will be a cause for pride or for despair in the year 2000 will depend very much on what we do today."

ROSARIO (NC)-A Mass was con celebrated here in Argentina by Archbishop Guillermo Bolatti of Rosario, and 56 of his priests to demonstrate the priests' support for the archbishop in his four-month-Iong dispute with 28 other priests. The priests who concelebrated the Mass are among a group of 120 'archdiocesan priests who have rallied behind the archbishop in the controversy, which resulted in his accepting the resignations of more than two dozen priests who claimed he was obstructing Church renewal. The priests had submitted their resignations three times before the archbishop accepted them. Hundreds of priests and laymen throughout Argentina have expressed their support for the resigning priests. Holy Sacrament church was under heavy police guard during the concelebrated Mass. Shortly before the Mass began a parcel was discovered at a side altar causing apprehensil;>n over the possibility of a bomb plant However, the package contained only a brick wrapped in packing paper.

Study Reasons Parents Transfer Children to Public Schools BUFFALO (NC)-Reasons for transferring children from Catholic schools to public schools were determined in a study conducted by Father S. Theodore Berg, assistant superintendent of Catholic schools in the diocese of Buffalo. A few of them may upset the theories of some Catholic educators. The 152-page study was undertaken by Father Berg as a doctoral thesis at the State University of Buffalo. It focused on the factors which influenced parents' decisions in transferring their children from Catholic elementary schools to public schools. Father Berg noted in an interview that much previous research had concentrated on why parents enroll their children in Catho'l: schools in the first place, but that none had been done on why they later transferred them to public schools. School officials have had to rely on guesswork regarding the reasons, he said. These are the major findings of Father Berg's study: Increasing Costs Contrary to the theories of some Catholic educators, the unavailability of Catholic schools in certain areas is not a major factor in the decline of Catholic elementary school enrollment. Parents who transfer their children from Catholic to public schools feel the public schools offer better educational quality. Parents of transferred children have a lower opinion of the need for Catholic elementary schools than do the parents of presisting students, even though both sets of parents agree basically on the reasons for the existence of Catholic schools. Parents of children transferred to public elementary schools have a greater concern for increasing costs of Catholic school education than do the parents of persisting students. Better Quality Summarizing studies made within the last 15 years, Father Berg said the typical parents sending their children to Catholic schools have higher incomes, are better educated, have more

Catholic education and· are usually both Catholics themselves. These parents, he said, give themselves a higher rating as practicing Catholics, have a higher opinion of the need for Catholic schools and feel that the quality of Catholic education is better. Father Berg's study was based on questionnaires filled out by 797 parents - 329 parents of transferred pupils and 468 parents of persisting pupils in the eight-county diocese of Buffalo. Capable Teachers Through his study, the priest determined that parents of transferred and of persisting students see capable teachers as the basic indicator of a school's quality: However, the two sets of parents divide on their second most important criterion in judging the quality of a particular school system. Parents of persisting students seek moral and ethical training for their children, while parents of transferred students want their children to be taught to think for themselves. According to the study, both sets of parents feel that Catholic schools are doing their best job in giving moral and ethical training to pupils. Agree on Need Questioned as to the reasons for Catholic education, both sets of parents surprisingly gave an identical response. Both groups felt the schools were needed in the following order of importance: Formation of good and welleducated Christians. Handing down the teachings of the Catholic faith to a new generation. Teaching good behavior. Having children taught by a group of dedicated Christian teachers. Giving parents a choice be-· tween public and non-public schools. "One group (parents of transferred students) is saying 'I see the reason for the existence of Catholic schools but I don't have a very strong opinion that they should exist to do those things,'" the priest said.

Dual Purpose International Committee Asks Church To Dou ble as Theatre . SAN ANT 0 N I 0 (NC) Churches of the future should be used as movie theaters as well as for worship, according to a proposal presented by a fivemember committee at the first International Study Week on Catechetics and Mass Media here. The proposal called for construction of all new churches as dual purpose structures to be used seven days a week instead of only for a few hours on Sunday, according to Alan G. Oddie, information director of George A. Pflaum Publisher, Dayton, Ohio, who was a member of the committee. Others joining in the proposal were Sister Corinne Hart, I.H.M., St. Francis Productions, Los Angeles, committee chairman; Father Jose Calle, national director of catechetics, Manila; Teresita Nitorreda, East Asian Pastoral Institute, Manila, and Father John E. O'Brien, director of communications arts, Loyola university, Montreal.

come step in that it introduced a certain spontaneity into the service," he said. "It loosened people up, made them more aware of and responsive to each other and to the word of God. "The multi-media liturgy will carry the process a step further. It will involve eyes as well as ears; it will help to release a creativity in the partiCipants and enable them to join more fully in a truly social celebration of the mystery of the Mass which will have some carryover into the environment beyond the church's walls." The same committee also proposed that an international group be set up to organize the use of current entertainment movies, TV programs-including commercials-and popular songs in the teaching of religion. Arrangements would be made to preview movies several weeks before their general release. If they were judged valuable, study guides would be prepared and distributed worldwide to parishes where the movies were due to be released.

Choose American Superior General ROME (NC)-For the first time in the history of the Society of the Divine Savior, an American has been elected its superior general.

He is the sixth superior general since the society was founded in Rome in 1881. The society members, commonly ealled the Salvatorians, devote themselves to spreading the faith through the sacred ministry, the education of youth, retreats, and missionary work among nonCatholics. The Milwaukee-born Father Skwor received his bachelor of arts degree in' philosophy from the Catholic University of Amer· ica in Washington, D.C., in 1949, and a master's degree from Rome's Gregorian University in 1954.

"The dream of yesterday is the hope of today and. the reality of tomorrow." The young man who spoke these words at his graduation from Worcester's South High School at the turn of the century would not have been surprised at the events of the last week. ·Dr. Robert H. Goddard, according to his widow, was so dominated by the desire to see man reach· out into space that every decision _of his adult life was taken with this in mind. It was on July 17, 1929 that he frightened his neighbors 'and really started the first step into the cosmic age when he sent aloft the world's first liquid-fueled rocket from a field near Holy Cross College. Last Sunday that dream and hope entered into reality when Neil Armstrong stepped onto the surface of the moon - "One small step for man but one great leap forward for mankind," Man's journey to and on the moon has awakened the pride of Americans and the self-consciousness of the entire human race. This sense of pride is tempered by man's awarenes of the vastness of the universe that he is bent on traveling and the smallness of himself and his own planet. With the psalmist he can indeed say, "The heavens proclaim the glory of God." . And perhaps from this point far out in space he can look back at his earth and see that it is a small lonely planet and that its inhabitants are members of a single world family for whose well-being he must recommit himself 'to work.

Peripheral Thoughts The remarkable accomplishments of the tel'!s of thousands of persons whose ,ingenuity and work made possible the Apollo XI mission that reached its culmination in man's landing and walking en the moon have given rise to masterpieces of literary praise and also to some peripheral thoughts' as well. Those_ in the middle years of life' rejoice that these heroes of the cosmic age of man are not downy-cheeked youths but mature men - that is, nearing 40 years of age. This in itself gives new life and'vigor to those in this age bracket who were beginning to realize that they h~d probably already lived more years than they were going to live. The events of the last week also gave to the whole world the unparalleled example of people working as a group- and with a sense of order and discipline. This is a valuable lesson i~deed if it can get through to those who feel that accomplishment is brought about only be revolution, and that destruction is the road to progress'. Violence dramatizes a need but is not its cure. The desire for revolution is a sympton of a sickness but is not its answer. A look into a problem, the bringing to bear of many minds upon it, reflection upon what can be done, then steady and persistent moving forward to accomplish stated purposes - these are the ways that the moon project was undertaken and this is still the drill for approaching other problems as well. Imagination and ingenuity ordered by intelligence and discipline have won a valuable victory in the' saga of Apollo XI.

Later On the later day - July 16, 1969 millions of persons throughout the world watched in awe and applauded with unabashed pride as the mighty Saturn 5 booster rose, slowly at first, and then swiftly, atop a tail of smoke and flame, toward the dream that Dr. Goddard knew could be reality. It seemed more than coincidental that one of the men in Apollo II, Col. Edwin E. Aldrin, Jr., should have been there. His father, a retired Air Force colonel, was also born in Worcester, and studied under Dr. Goddard at Clark University before the "exile" to New Mexico.

Reverse Plan Michigan Communoty to Send Teachers To Other Schools BAY CITY (NC)-A "reverse" shared-time program, approved by Bay City Board of Education, will see public school teachers conducting classes in private school classrooms. Elwyn J. Bodley, superintendent of the public school system here in Michigan, will work out the details. . In the usual shared-time classes, students from a nonpublic school are lransported to public schools for some classes. Proponents of "reverse"sharedtime see it simpler and safer to move one teacher to the students rather than move some 30 students to one teacher. Approval of "reverse" sharedtime came on a 4-3 Board of Education vote and repres~nted a, reversal of an earlier reversal. The 'concept was rejected by a 4-3 vote last August. . "Reverse" shared-time has been a major issue in this heavily Catholic city of 55,000 in east-central Michigan. Last August, when' a Catholic bid for reverse shared-time support for . their schools was rejected there was only one Catholic on the Bay City Board of Education," now there are three. Two Catholics who subsequently ran for the board were

Louis archdiocese this week in its fourth and final report on service to the community. The report, issued by Msgr. Francis M, Doyle of the Archdiocesan Human Rights Commission, was in answer to charges by ACTION and other black militant organizations that the Catholic Church fails "to serve the poor and the black community. The Sisters of 51. Mary and 51. Mary's Hospital conduct a mobile pre-natal clinic in the west end of the city, Msgr. Doyle reported. Out-patient clinics at several other Catholic hospitals, plus special neighborhood clinics, provided medical services'to thousands of children and poor families during the year he reported.

Prayers Bishop Bernard J. Flanagall of Worcester was one of those who applauded the Apollo 11 events. In a statement issued upon the successful launch, he said: "We pray, as we ask all good people in the diocese and county of Worcester to pray, that this mission of Apollo 11 will bring * * " 'glory to the name of God Who gives man such power'; and we pray, for the safety of the three brave men who search the heavens for the benefit of all mankind."

"But," he added, "in its recognition that simplistic concentration on family planning is not an adequate response to the manysided issue of population growth, the President's message marks progress and opens the door to useful discussion," If the Church is to have a meaningful. role in this discussion, Father McHugh said, "it cannot afford simply to respond negatively to Mr. Nixon's initiative. Rather, the Church must look for what is good in his proposals and ·must seek ways to maximize the good while minimizing the possibilities for social and individual disruption."

Attorney General John N. Mitchell today sent to Congress the Control of Danerous Substances Act of 1969. The Attorney General said: "The passage of this bill will greatly aid th~ federal government in its deter. mined efforts to protect our may be renewed by the patient not more than five times in six citizens - particularly our months. Penalties range from youths-from the physical probation to a maximum of 20 and psychological tragedies of drug addiction and abuse." "Passage of this bill will especially benefit our poorer citizens who may be induced to use drugs as a temporary escape from the bleakness of ghetto life." The Attorney General said that the bill has several "new and imaginative" approaches: Revised penalties - up to 80 years in prison-for professional narcotics traffickers. A st,lggestion that Congress consider making a distinction between youths who experiment with small amounts of narcotics and those who are professional narcotics sellers. The elimination of the tax laws and other theories previous· Iy used to enforce narcotics laws and the substitution of the uniform theory of controlling narcotics and dangerous drugs using Congress' power to control commerce. The establishment of four schedules for dangerous drugs with increasing criminal registration provisions which will give the Attorney General the discretion to move drugs from one Schedule to another as dictated by results of scientific research and increased or decreased criminal activity involving the drugs on each Schedule. In general, the Attorney General's decision will be guided by a special scientific advisory committee and by the Department of Health, Education & Welfare. Specifics Specifically the bill provides for: (a) Schedule I (mainly heroin, marijuana, cocaine and LSD): Penalties ranging from probation for simple possession for a first offender to 80 years for the third conviction of a sale to a person under 18: possession is prohibited by physicians, hospitals and other specfalists except for cer· tified and registered research. (b) Schedule II (mainly the synthetic opiates such as methedone and other narcotic drugs) Penalties ranging from probation for simple possession to 80 years for the third sale to a person under 18; possession is permitted by physicians, hospitals, and other specialists but prescriptions cannot be automatically reo newed by the patient. (c) Schedule III (mainly the less potent narcotics, the barbiturates and the amphetamines); possession is limited to registered physicians, hospitals and other specialists: prescriptions

Sentences generally range from probation to a maximum of one year. Pen'atties The bill also provides for civil penalties of up to a $25,000 fine per offense for violation of regulations on importation, exportation and manufacture. The bill also provided for four broad law enforcement powers: (I) The power to obtain search warrants for dangerous drugs at night. (2) The power to obtain a warrant to enter suspected premises without knocking in cases where illegal drugs may be destroyed. (3) The power to require manufacturing firms to submit to administrative inspections without the necessity of showing that the firm may be operating in violation of the law. (4) A witness immunity provision. The Attorney General said that the new bill will be administratively' implemented by several new enforcement programs including special emphasis on the conviction of the "top ten" narcotics wholesalers in each major metropolitan area; the addition of 140 more agents in the I3ureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs in fiscal 1970; and the addition of 250 more agents in fiscal 1971.

The Oxford-educated theologian from India is teaching comparative Hinduism and Christianity. He is spending the Summer here because USF, a Jesuit university, has a marked demand for his speciality, but the Vatican Jesuits want to keep him. Father Dhavamony is satisfied with an occasional two weeks in Shembaganum, his home in South India, and admittedly ha!; strong intellectual ties to Rome. Father Dhavamony, who has taught for three years at the Gregorian University in Rome, said, "There is more source material on Hinduism in Rome than I could find in all of India. Not to mention Oxford where I did a doctorate.

Cut We,ekly Sf,ore Bills By Joseph and Marilyn Roderick I have no idea what 'other people pay for fruit, but _ our weekly bill is staggering. It seems t~at Marilyn and I are always picking up bananas, apples, pears, etc., and as soon as they get into the fruit bowl the'y disappear. I'm. afraid that I am· partially to blame for this rapid dis- (and we were so small) that even the tips of our ears appeared to appearance, because I like get in on the good eating. nothing better than a crisp apple or a slice of jucy melon. As a result, Summer is rather like a financial respite for us since we do have some of our own fruit, although a very limited amount, and it helps to satisfy the children's fruit hunger without constant trips to the marKet. For the past three mornings I have had a large helping of freshly picked raspbert'ies for breakfast, and a perfect breakfast it is. With a dash of sugar and a few drops of cream these raspberries are fit for a king. And yet of all the things we grow, these have to be the easiest. Except for cutting back the canes in the Fall, I can honestly say that nary a minute is spent in their culture. ' For Lazy Gardeners For those of you who have a sunny spot in the garden and enough room to let the unde~­ ground shoots spread out, there is n9t a better specimen (or the lazy gardener to deal with. We have enough berry plants now to provide about two quarts'of berries each day; we spend more time picking the berries than' we do in caring for them. Blueberries are another. matter. The bushes this year are over-laden with them, but our garden is filled with birds, including a pair of cardinals who are having a feast on the blueberries.We have tried everything but netting the bushes and I think that if we are to save any berries next year we will have to resort to that. As it is now, the birds eat the berries when they are' just turning red, far too early for human consumption. For those of you who love fresh fruit of any kind, I would strongly suggest a go at red raspberries. We have one or two Latham berries and an unknown variety my father bought years ago. The latter spreads very quickly and 'produces a good juicy berry. In the Kitchen As we drive by the seafood markets along the Westport River on our daily trips to the beach, I can't resist stopping at least once a week and getting enough clams and a small piece of whitefish for a home clamboil. Joe adores clams and those we buy are fresh 'from the sea and kept perfectly clean by being kept in a continually running salt water bath until chosen to grace some hungry tourist's table. My children will eat a few and so will I, but never do I start a clamboil that my thoughts don't turn to my late father. He loved to cook a c1amboil for family and friends and he never felt that a Summer season was complete until he had served at least two or three boils. I remember so well enjoying them in my Aunt Grace's yard in Swansea under the evercool grape vine. As children, my cousins and I were riever big on the clams but we surely did love those huge pieces of icy watermelon that we enjoyed at the end of a meal. They were so big

Every Summer the discussion ~ would resume al)d while my. father, who was a gentle soul """"j who hated arguments, would allow Joe to put the clams on top you could be positive that he really didn't feel that this was the way it should be done.

Nuns Take Jobs To Pay Debt

By Marilyn Ro«llell'llck

Fun, furry and fake seems to be the description of the coat scene for this coming Fall. It was a dreary Monday and the beach seemed lout of the question, so with Meryl in tow and the other two safely harbored at their Nana's, I we'nt on a tour of the downtown shopping dis- son but pretty soon it began to more time at the cleaners trict, and couldn't help but spend than on my back and this was notice the abundance of fur even BC (before children). Final-

fashions. Skirts, weskits, pants and of course coats are already decorating the store windows with their smashing fashion •• pow." Worn with them are shiny black boots and other leather accessories. From the look of the assortment in the stores now, in July, it's the time to pick one up if you want the best selection. . The prices certainly are right, with many full length coats selling in the $100 to $120 price range and the shorter versions around $50. Youth, per usual, has adopted these fun furs as its own but' many a younghearted and stylish matron will find one of these the perfect extra coat. I think if it were your only Winter coat you would get very tired of it but if you feel your budget could stretch to include a little frivolous expenditure, this could be it. Those who lead a more casual slacks and sports skirts life will find the short jackets as stylish as the long fakes. Many of the shorter versions are trimmed· with a contrasting long-haired fur and are belted for a sporty look. Real Fur Now if your budget could stand a little more stretching and you want real fur 'instead of fake, try one of the very lowpriced (for fur, that is) fun furs such as muskrat, dyed South African lamb and Mongolian lamb. Prices on this type of fun fur run anywhere from $195 to $535, but then you are getting the real thing. About 13 years ago I purchased what I think was one of the first fake fur coats to come on the market. In those days it was called Borgana but sadly, because I've always preferred style over practicality, I bought a white one. It was just lovely the first sea-

Bavarian Association Disagrees With Priests MUNICH (NC) - The official clergy association in the state of Bavaria has made it clear that it does not support the demands of the dissident priests who held a meeting in Chur, Switerland, at the same time as the symposium of European bishops. In a statement released here the Bavarian association, which includes 85 per cent of the clergy of the Munich and Speyer dioceses, rejected the charge of the Chur priests' meeting that the decision of the European bishops not to allow the priests to participate in the symposium made the Church and the bishops lose much of their credibility. The statement said that although the association is interested in the questions discused by the bishops, it respects their desire and intention to first discuss these issues in closed meetings. .

ly even the cleaner threw up his hands in disgust because the soil was getting harder and harder to remove. Sadly I pushed my (by now) tattle-tale grey coat to the back of the closet (I didn't have the heart to throw it away), and gave it up as a loss. Fur Accessories Probably in the past 13 years cleaning know how on these fake furs has come a long way, but with this past in mind I would purchase a black or brown one if I were to buy any at all. Don't fret if real fur is too riery for your blood. With the big focus on accessories, muffs, hats and flmiting fur scarfs will make just as big an impression as a full length mink (well, almost). And this type of fur you can buy with the butter and egg money!

MINNEAPOLIS (NC) - Some 40 nuns of the order of St. Bene· dict are working at a variety of secretarial jobs in the Twin Cities area this Summer. All their salaries are paid directly to their order, which has an imme· diate and urgent need for the money. . The project was begun when the Sisters found themselves without suffi<:ient income to meet a large payment on their new St. Paul Priory. The situation stemmed from a drop in the number of young women joining the order, combined with increased retirements. ' Sister Rolaine, assistant to the mother superior, said the nuns were faced with finding the needed funds or else refinancing at a three per cent hike in interest rates, to eight-and-one-half per cent. One Sister contacted a Minneapolis employment firm which specializes in temporary positions. A company official offered a free brush-up course in office practices before placing the Sisters in jobs. The Sisters wear conservative street clothes and black veils on the job. Sister Rolaine said the veils are removed if employers object strongly to them. If the Sisters' efforts are not successful in raising sufficient funds, Sister Rolaine said, they may have to seek a lowinterest loan, or contributions from benefactors. But "we wanted to do this through our own efforts, if possible," she said.

Assert Biafran Situation Pc»ses U. S. Probl'em WASHINGTON (NC)-The starvaJion of more than a million persons in Biafra as a result of the Nigerian' civil war is becoming more of a moral problem for the United States, according to both Church and State officials who testified before the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Refugees. This is also what many officials have said, and still are saying, about the war in Vietnam. But the quag~ire that engulfed the U. S. in Vietnam has fnade officials cautious about any role this nation may play in the Biafran situation. In Vietnam it is matter of taking part in the fighting and becoming involved in Vietnamese politics. Church and State officials asking the U. S. to help the starving thousands in Biafra, however, tend to shy away from any military and political solutions. Help for Biafrans, they declare, must be on the sole grounds of humanitariaism. Sen Charles E. Goodell' of New York, testifying before the subcommittee, said: Humanitarian Goals "The Administration should make it clear that it' is concerned with humanitarian objectives, not with achieving any particular political solution of the Nigerian conflict. Whether Nigeria and Biafra are ultimately united in one nation or divided into two cannot be a matter for us to debate; it is a decision to be made by the people involved." Church officials seeking' help for the hungry Biafrans do not even mention Vietnam. Their appeal sticks strictly to the need to feed the hungry. But some of them, like Jan van Hoogstraten, director of the Africa Department of. Church World Service, Division of Overseas Ministries, National Council of Churches of Christ in the United States of Amerka, do not hesitate to suggest action that would have some degree of political ·implications. "We hope that steps towards an arms embargo, followed by negotiations for a ceasefire a'nd eventual peace' talks, al'e the active concern of our government, . which in consultation with other governments, can still play a major role in facilitating such negotiations leading to a just peace," Hoogstraten told the subcommittee. Even Goodell was critical of Britain,' Russia, and France for supplying arms to the Nigerian conflict. But he praised the U. S. for not becoming militarily involved.

Low Perseverance For Seminarians RIO DE JANEIRO (NC)-Qnly three out of every 500 youths who enter seminaries in Rio de Janeiro state persevere. 'to become priests, a study has shown. This low rate is seen as the principal reason for the lack of priests in the area. There is talk here of importing more priests from Europe. European priests now comprise 40 'per cent of the priests in the state, where there is only one priest for every 8,000 Catholics. The proportion is worse in large cities,like Campos with one priest for every 14,00 Catholics and Nova Iguacu with one priest for every 26,OQO Catholics.

Shannon. the guidelines report has been in preparation for about four years, the chancery said. The document is divided into three major sections: guidelines for prayer and worship in common, guidelines for education in ecumenism, and guidelines for Christian dialog. . Coadjutor Archbishop Leo C. Byrne said he will be "in close communication," to handle the various questions which "will arise in the implementation of the guidelines" and in the solving of any problems. The guidelines calI for increased cooperation and "a spirit of reciprocity" between groups in worship, education, and dialog.

Score Governor On Food Problem ~n Baltimore

Prelate Back~ Chavez Stand

BALTIMORE (NC) - The Maryland Food Committee, Inc., is seeking $1.5 million from private sources to buy bag lunches for 15,00 undernourished Baltimore school children in the 1969-70 school year. The Food Committee will not make an official reply to Gov. Marvin Mandel's denial of charges that his promise to provide free lunches for Maryland school children was a "political maneuver." After several futile attempts to contact the governor to find out his intentions to eliminate the lunch problem, the Food Committee, composed of Baltimore religious and lay leaders, held a press conference at the Catholic Center criticizing Gov.' Mandel for his failure to "respond to the needs of Maryland's hungry children." In the governor's denial of the Food Committee's charge, he said his administration had a "strong and sincere" interest in feeding hungry children but "an equally strong and sincere" determination to operate within the law and the state budget. Gov. Mandel noted that a $2 mill.ion state budget proposed for the 1969-70 fiscal year intended to provide lunches for needy children had been elil";'inated before he became governor. Gov. Mandel said he hoped to have a workable lunch program in effect by September, 1969, but did not indicate that the necessary funds are available. 15,000 Needy At the press conference, Lawrence Cardinal Shehan of Baltimore, a fllember of the .Food Committee, said: "If the program is to be in effect by September, private individuals and organizations will have to meet the need. But, because private organizations cannot handle the entire financial load for any length of time, the program should be implemented with full expectation that the state will assume its part." Mrs. J. Royal Tippett, chairman of the Food Committee, said a plan has been formulated to provide bag lunches but the necessary funds are not available. According to Mrs. Tippett, lunch for one child will cost $100 yearly and the committee hopes to feed 15,000 needy children per year.

Behuncik, president of the Slovak League of America, announced that the American Fund for Slovak Refugees, Inc., was incorporated on July I under the laws of the State of Conflecticut to "assist our Slovak brethren and kinfolk who have escaped from the communist yoke in their native Slovakia."

Behuncik said "because of the in-ternational recognition of the separate Republic of Slovakia as part of the federated Czechoslovakia, it is timely that we assist our Slovak directly brethren ra~her than indirectly through non-Slovak agencies. The American Fund for Slovak Refugees will work closely with Catholic, Protestant, Jewish and nondenominational refugees in the United States and various other centers in Europe. A Slovak representative was appointed in Vienna, Austria, to make arrangements and work with such agencies.

The document was the third and final one on Church renewal produced by the Lay Congress of the diocese. Other documents of renewal, developed by the Lay Congress and already promulgated, deal with administrative structures and educati9n. New consultative, and administrative advisory bodies in those two fields are already functioning.

Father Richard P. Vaughan, S.J., 50, has been appointed vice provincial for education in charge of Jesuits working in three universities and five high schools in California and Arizona. Until July 1 Father Vaughan was a psychology professor and dean of liberal arts and science at the ·university. Father Robert L.

manent Social Responsibility Board. Under Father Powell, a pastor in the Eden Park ghetto area, the social responsibility board has established several acting committees to deal with local social problems and has decided that one of the most pressing social needs in the diocese is that of better housing. According to Bishop Tracy's letter of promulgation, there are more than 15,000 substandard homes in Baton Rouge alone. Under consideration by the Office of Social Responsibility'

Announce Members Of Pope's Party VATICAN CITY (NC) - Three cardinals and other Vatican officials will ac:;company Pope Paul VI on his historic flight to Uganda, Africa, o.n July 31. The Vatican has announced that the Pope will be accbmpanied by a small official party including Eugene Cardinal Tisserant, dean of the college of cardinals; Jean Cardinal Villot, Papal Secretary of State, and Gregory Cardinal Agagianian, prefect of the Congregation for the Evangelization of People. Others making up the Pope's party will be Archbishop Giovanni Benelli, Undersecretary of State; Archbishop Agostino Casaroli, secretary of the Council for the Public Affairs of the Church; Bishop Giacomo Martin, prefect of the Apostolic Palace, and Joseph Amichia, a member of the Vatican' Council of the Laity. Also aboard the East African Airways plane will be a number of newsmen and photographers.

Proper Balance Our problem in money-making or governmental affairs is how to remain properly venturesome and experimental without making fools of ourselves. -Baruch

is a plan whereby the diocese will enter into a cooperative agreement with the federal government in an effort to help alleviate the ,housing problem. Spirit of Council "I am confident," Bishop Tracy said, "that Catholics are aware of the importance of addressing ourselves, in the spirit of Vatican II, to the social problems of our day, those internal to the Church as well as those with which our fellow men in general are struggling. A Catholic today must be a person who, because of his access to the full deposit of faith and the channels of divine grace which are to be found in' the Catholic Church, should be the very first ,to sense with sympathy the agony and the needs of modern man, his problems of the spirit, and the crushing isues of poverty, war, discrimination' and insecurity." The bishop thanked those persons who have spent more than two years in study and planning before arriving at a final consensus on the directive on social responsibility. He also expressed his gratitude to those members of other faiths' who contributed their services and advice during the interim period of the board. "I hope," the bishop said, "that we shall continue to have the benefit of their services as we meet the social responsibilities of our community in a Christlike spirit."

BERKELEY (NC) Bishop Hugh A. Donohoe of Stockton told a workshop here that he considers farm labor leader Cesar Chavez' new legislative demands covering agricultural employes "very reasonable," and promised his personal' support toward their passage. Chavez, director of the United Farm Workers Organizing Committee (AFL-CIO), told a Congressional labor committee that his union seeks exemption "for a time" from the Taft-Hartley and Landrum-Griffin restrictions on recognition and organizational picketing and the secondary boycott. Bishop Donohoe made his statement of support at the conclusion of a farm labor legislation workshop, held at the University of California Newman Center. The program was sponsored by a number of national and local church and labor groups, including the San Francisco archdiocesan and the Oakland diocesan Commissions on Social Justice. Bishop Donohoe emphasized that the right to organize is one of the keystones of the Church's social teachings and that this right must he reconized by all and positively encouraged. There has been widespread criticism that Chavez, in his demands, was asking for special treatment for his union, rights not now enjoyed by the U. S. labor movement.

"I think somehow the church - in my church, too, (Presbyterian)-we had become too wrapped up in the social c1u,b type activity. I've seen churches move out of changing neighborhoods. I think this is the greatest challenge a church can face-to stay in the chang'ing neighborhood and serve the community there." Black Priests Asked whether more black priests would aid the black community's. problems, Mrs. Leatherman commented from her experience working with Catholic priests in the Detroit archdiocese: "The priests I came in contact with were so human. I never thought of them as black or white. If a priest is warm, he'll be accepted. We've seen this is true. "It might be however, that some people carried away with the idea of black and white separation may need a black priest. There are various needs." But Mrs. Leatherman added that black priests might accomplish more in a white community. "White people need to be oriented. They have the stereotype ideas about Negroes. We Negroes have stereotype ideas about whites, too-let's face it."

Denver r?rie$.t Sends Draft Card 1'0 Pre~ode~fr==is Re",class;H~d DENVER (NC) - Father Craig Hart, 30, assistant pastor at Annunciation parish, has been issued a new draft card classifying him I-A. In January, he sent his original card with clerical exemption status to President Nixon "as an expression of religious and personal faith." After receiving his new c1assificatiqn in June, indicating he is eligible for military service, he returned his new draft card to the Selective Service Board in Colorado Springs, telling the board that "the classification is in error" and "you may wish to correct it." Father Hart, closely indentified with civil rights and anti-poverty causes - particularly those of Hispano-Americans who constitute the majority of Annunciation parishioners - participated in two demonstrations here a few weeks before he was reclassified June 10. He and others staged a mock funeral May 14 in the Colorado Capitol rotunda, just outside the governor's office, for several items of anti-poverty legislation that had been killed in the state legislature. Part of Liturgy The following day he was among 14 persons who invaded the state Senate chamber to stage a non-violent, verbal protest. The demonstrators were arrested and carried out of the chamber by police. Father Hart said he and three laymen mailed their draft cards to the President as part of a private liturgy here the night of President Nixon's inauguration. He said the three laymen had been reclassified in March as a result of the action; one had completed all but three months of "alternate service" allowed as a substitute for military duty. Father Hart said he had received no explanation from the draft board in Colorado· Springs his home to'wn. A spokesman fo; the board told a reporter the reclassification was "an obligation" on the board, imposed by Selec-

Consider Taxing Church Property LANSING (NC)-A resolution calling for a study to consider the possibility of taxing church property has been introduced in the Michigan Senate. The resolution, sponsored by the State Sen. Gilbert E. Bursley, asks Gov. William G. Milliken of Michigan to have his commission on educational reform "study all sources of possible revenue, including tax exempt institutions, to finance education." Bursley said the Senate adopted a resolution asking the educational reform commission to consider state aid for non public schools. The resolution stated that one presently untapped reservoir of tax revenue li"es within tax exempt institutions, many of which would directly benefit if' state aid were voted for non public schools." The Bursley resolution was referred to the committee on senate business.

"The board was obligated to act as it did * " <, I am quite sure he was aware of the consequences. He wanted to be reclassified." The spokesman said the board would take no further action in Father Hart's case unless it is directed to do so by the state Selective Service headquarters. She said his file would be turned over to the state board for "further review," and to the Department of Justice for study and possible prosecution. Father Hart has not been declared "delinquent," a move tantamount to early induction. He said he had not discussed his new status with Archbishop James V. Casey of Denver. In his letter to the draft board, Father Hart pointed out he is still a "full time minister of religion," the status upon which was based his original Selective Service classification of 4-.0.

University Faces Possible Closing

Suggests Ways To Aid Biafrans

RECIFE (NC) - The Catholic University of Pernambuco, with 4,200 students, is facing the possibility of having to close next year because of a government decision that 50 per cent of all university budgets must be used to make room for more students. University authorities claim that conforming to the government order will face the university with financial problems. The dean of the university has expressed opposition to raising tuition because,he said, such a move would make the univer· sity a club for rich boys and would prevent poor youngsters from rising' to a higher cultural level. Pernambuco state is located in Brazil's poverty-stricken- northeast.

WASHINGTON (NC) - "SelfEducation for Peace Through Reconcilliation" will be the theme of the next World Day of Peace, to be held in January. The specific date has not yet been determined. Announcement of the theme was made' by Vittorino Veronese of the 'Pontifical Commission on Justice and Peace. Veronese is president of the commission's Study Committee on the Issues of Peace and of the International Community.. He said the theme "highlights the need to appeal to individuals, peoples and nations to agree to forgive reciprocal wrongs and ultimately reach out beyond both

individual and collective selfaffirmation which. tends to separate the members of the international community. "This undertaking of forming public opinion for peace entails avoiding a moralistic attitude beginning by a personal formation for peace. This self-education must bear witness to the sincerity of our conversion to the principles and methods of the architects of peace."

Throughout the Near East each year, grateful bishops ordain hundreds of new priests trained· by people like you.... Their own families are too poor to support them in training, but goo~ Catholics in America 'adopted' these seminarians, encouraged them all the way to ordina· tion .... In some inspiring cases, this support was given at personal sacrifice.... How can you begin? Write to us now. We'll send you the name of. a young seminarian who needs you, and he will write to you. Make the payments for his training to suit your convenience ($8.50 a month, or $100 'a year, or the total $600 all at once). Join your sacrifices to his, and at every Sacrifice of the Mass, he will always remember who made it possible.

Look at the nearest $10 bill. What is it actually worth? Only what it will buy. In Miami or Brooklyn or Philadelphia, it will hardly buy enough to feed a family for two days. In the Holy Land, it will feed a poor refugee family for an entire month. The Holy Father asks your help for the refugees, more than half of them children. Your money multiplies-as you give it away.



Thinking of the month ahead, why not send us your Mass requests right now? Simply list the intentions, and then you can rest assured the Masses will be offered by priests in India, the Holy Land and Ethiopia, who receive no other income.... Remind us to send you information about Gregorian Masses, too. You can arrange now to have Gregorian Masses offered for yourself, or for another, after death.

Ponder Changing Law on HolydOlYs Of Obligation

THE ANCHORThurs., July 24, 1969

Stays IExplu~ion Of Missioners

WASHINGTON (NC) The National Conference of Catholic Bishops is seeking to determine what changes, if any, should be made in current C h u r c h legislation requiring Catholics in the United States to attend Mass on five holydays of obligation. In the process, it is sampling the attitudes of bishops, priests, Religious and laity on the issue. Since the obligation to participate in Mass on these holydays touches the laity in a particular way, a special effort is being made .to determine their feelings in the matter. It is being suggested that while the samplings are being made some catechesis on the subject of holydays be given, possibly through one or two homilies by parish priests. This catechesis, it is felt, could serve as a preparation for the samplings and as a general instruction for the people regarding 'holydays of obligation. A survey of the NCCB in 1969 indicated that a majority of U. S. bishops favored some change in the observance of obligatory holydays, but provided no clear pattern. For this reason an ad hoc committee of the NCCB was appointed last November, under the chairmanship of Bishop Aloysius J. Wyeislo of Green Bay, Wis., to explore the question. Two Choices There are two fundamental choices: either retain the holydays of obligation as they are, or modify existing legislation. If one opts for a change in the law, a decision must be made with regard to each holyday. This choice will mean either to make no change regarding that particular hoi day, or to eliminate the obligation requiring participation in Mass on that particular day, or to transfer the celebration of the feast to a near and appropriate Sunday. Christmas will remain as a holyday of Obligation, in any event. The question of change involves five other holydays of obligation - Jan. I, which now becomes the Solemnity of Mary the Mother of God; Ascension Thursday; the Feast of the Assumption, Aug. 15; All Saints Day, Nov. I, and the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, Dec. 8. The NCCB committee is leaving it to the individual Ordinary to determnie how he will make samplings in his See, through the' Iiturg1cal commission or some similar group, through parishes, or through some lay organization. A questionnaire is provided by the committee, but the Ordinary may use his own. The results of the samplings are to be tabulated by local personnel and only a general report submitted to the committee.

"It is greatly to be regretted that bishops are not permitted to retire three or four times after they pass 75 years of age in order to receive a flood of fine letters telling them how good they are," Archbishop Lucey said.

NEW DELHI (NC)-The Indian government has granted a sixweek extension to the residential permit of 15 foreign missionaries awaiting expulsion from Assam state. Following a joint representation by Valerian Cardinal Gracias of Bombay, Archbishop Angelo Fernandes of Delhi and Bishop Hubert D'Rosario of Dibrugarh, the Indian home ministry permitted the priests and Sisters to stay in the state till the end of July. They were ordered originally to quit by the middle of June -·in pursuance of a decision by the Assam state government to clear the state's "sensitive border areas" of all foreign missionaries. The home ministry also took up for consideration an application for Indian citizenship presented by nine of the' missionaries. Cardinal Gracias and the other prelates had pleaded with V.C. Shukla, minister of state for home affairs, for a favorable respo'nse to the applications. It is understood that the extension of stay was permitted with a view to facilitate processing and approval of the applications.

Pass Bill to Aid Dental School LANSING (NC)-A bill to pay the University of Detroit $2,400 for each Michigan resident who graduates from its dental school cleared its final legislative hurdle. The Michigan Senate, by a 291 vote, concurred in minor amendments made by the House of Representatives and sent the bill to Gov. William G. Milliken for his signature. The House had approved the bill by a 62-43 vote a week earlier foll6wing two days of debate. It had passed the Senate by a 28-5 vote. The bill provides that "each accredited non-public school of dentistry in the State" shall receive a $2,40Q grant for each graduate doctor of dental surgery or dental medicine. Since the University of Detroit has the only non-public dental school in Michigan, it would be the sole beneficiary of the bill.

Universit.y Ends Year in Violence

THE ANCHORThurs., July 24, 1969

90 Foundations Give Churc~es $2 Million

PAMPLONA (NC)-The Catholic University of Navarre ended its academic year amid student violence stemming from' "suggestions" by university authori-' ties to some students that they not register for the new school term. This was interpreted by students as tantamount to expul· sion, and they reacted with sitins, other demonstrations, verbal attacks of university officials and Molotov cocktails-resulting in arrests of many of the cremonstrators. The university is operated by Opus Dei, a secular institute . composed of priests and laymen, which has been running into opposition from the Falange, Spain's only legal political party. Observers believe that Falange leaders fear the growth of Opus Dei both in numbers and prestige in this country. Many Opus Dei members hold key positions in the government of Gen. Francisco Franco. Opus Dei authorities had expressed the hope that by keeping out students considered undesirable, the university could avoid student problems in the next school year.

WASHINGTON (NC) More than 90 foundations have awarded grants of more than $10,000 to individual

churches and temples this year, according to a semi-annual 'list of grants published in the July- . August issue of Foundation News magazine. The magazine reported all grants to religious organizations that totaled more than $10,000. The grants to individual churches and temples alone amounted to more than $2 million. Eight grants were made for buildings and equipment, totaling $232,500. Recipients range from the Baltimore archdiocesan building fund, to a Catholic church in California, for the purchase of European works of art. Religious associations, varying from the National Council of Catholic Men ($50,000) to the Christian Anti-Communist Crusade ($30,000), received a total of almost $4 million from 108 different sources.

German Prelates Urge Support

Decide Vocation

For Papacy

'Be a Monk for a Month' [ExlPe~~ment At Scottisi1l Priory

MUNICH (NC)-Two German cardinals voiced strong support for the primacy of the pope in sermons marking the sixth anniversary of the coronation of Pope Paul VI. Julius Cardinal Doepfner of Munich and Lorenz Cardinal Jaeger of Paderborn also called for renewed loyalty to the teaching office of the Church. Cardinal Doepfner urged his listeners to "oppose those trends which seek to weaken the function and mission of the papacy, and which consider religious obedience to the supreme pastor outdated." Necessary Precisely in these times, in which humanity is growing closer together, a unifying center in the Church is necessary rather than outmoded, he said. The cardinal did add, however, that the forms of leadership are changeable in many aspects, and that they must be subordinated to an effective ministry in the Church. "No doubt, not all of the heirlooms of a more feudal form of ruling and strong centralized government have been eliminated," he declared. "We are still searching for the proper way to exercise collegial co-responsibiity." Careful But churches in individual countries or dioceses, he added, must be careful not to begin anything which might endanger the entire Church. . Cardinal Jaeger recalled that Pope Paul had proclaimed this the "year of faith." There were few echoes heard of the Pope's call for a year of faith and of his Credo of the People of God, however, Cardinal Jaeger said. They both are now "gone with the wind." he complained. Not Catholic He warned that those who deny and attack the fundamental declarations of the Church can no longer be considered Catholic. Because they take' their stand outside the faith and community of the Church, they can no longer h a v e communion with the Church, he added.

ELGIN (NC)-A "be a monk for a month" experiment at a Scottish Benedictine priory has attracted over 200 inquiries from all over the world and the first recruits have been accepted. Under the plan, selected persons can live the full life of the community for periods of about a month. Prior Alfred Spencer, O.S.B., said: "We feel there are many who are uncertain about their vocation and who do not wish to interrupt their studies or give up a job. They would welcome this short period of full community life to help them decide whether God is calling them to the monastic life." Formerly men were admitted as postulants only for six months. If a newcomer wished to continue after that, "he entered the novitiate for a year. If, after that, he still wished to continue, he made temporary vows for three years.

New Nuncio VATICAN CITY (NC)-Archbishop Angelo Pedroni, a consultant to the Holy See's Secretariat of State, has been named apostolic nuncio in Costa Rica by Pope Paul VI. The 55-year-old prelate was born in Maccagno, in northern Italy. After studying at local seminaries, he came to Rome and attended the Gregorian University.

A person who feels the experimental month has shown that he should continue can either leave to arrange his affairs before returning for the six-month postulancy, or continue without leaving. The month counts as part of the postulancy period. Four men have been received as postulants in the novitiate after trying the life at the 13thcentury priory for a month. The newcomers join a community of 17 Benedictine priests and lay Brothers.

Perrault Sykes Books Tell Activ~ties of Anti-Nazis By IlU. ~ev. Msgr. John S. Kennedy Two men dedicated to thwarting Adolf Hitler dominate two new books, The Red Orchestra by Gilles Perrault (Simon and Shuster, 630 Fifth Ave., New York, N.Y. 10020, $7.95) and Tormented Loyalty by Christopher Sykes (Harper and Row, 49 E. 33rd St., New York, N.Y. 10016,8.95.) The habitual Soviet distrust of its agents. Another is the fact central figure in the first is own that Trepper had escaped withLeopold Trepper, a Polish out asking and obtaining his

Jew; in the second, it is Adam von Trott, a German aristocrat, who on the maternal side, was a descendant of John Hay, first Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court. Trepper, born in 1904, headed a Soviet spy ring known as the Red Orchestra. He was a hardcore Communist who, from his youth, was engaged in conspiracy and espionage. When, in 1941, Hitler attacked the Soviet Union, Trepper was ready to assist the latter through a network he had cunningly built up in Western Europe. It had centers in Paris, Brussels, and Berlin itself. The Berlin organization reached into the Nazi high command, into various government offices, and into distinguished social circles. By means of radio, it supplied Moscow with vast amounts of valuable information. For example, it notified the Soviets of Nazi battle plans, troop dispositions, weaponry, morale. The turning point of the war on the eastern front is commonly recognized as having been the succesful defense of Stalingrad, and the authur contends that it was copious and accurate data furnished by the Red Orchestra which made this possible. In Constant Danger In Paris and in Brussels, the spy ring was largely financed by commercial organizations set up by Trepper. These were given a seemingly respectable front of loyal nations, but were completely controlled by him. They secured supplies for the Nazis, made huge profits, and thereby provided capital for anti-Nazi activities. In effect, the Nazis were subsidizing their own most effective opponents. The spy network was, of course.. in constant danger. Hitler's counter-espionge doggedly sought to catch the agents and destroy the ring. The Nazis scored successes in this respect in Brussels in 1941, and in Berlin and Paris in 1942. Trepper himself was caught in Paris in November of the latter year. He was in the hands of the Nazis for about ten months. Although many of his agents were viciously tortured and some summarily executed, he was very gently used. Never was a harsh hand laid on him. He managed to escape in September, 1943, and went into hiding. Sentenced to Prison When in 1944, the Nazis were driven from Paris, Trepper made contact with the Soviet mission which quickly came to the liberated city. He flew to Moscow in 1945. There, instead of being hailed as a hero and handsomely rewarded for his invaluable contribution to the Soviet victory, he was put under arrest and given a fifteen-year prison sentence, of which he served ten years. Why his imprisonment? One reason cited by the author is the

Communist bosses permission to do so. A third is the fact that Trepper was indignant over Stalin's refusal to believe the' Red Orchestra's repeated warnings of an impending Nazi attack on Russia in 1941; a man with knowledge of Stalin's colossal blunder in this regard could not be left at liberty. A fourth is the fact of Trepper's being a Jew; anti-Semitism in which Stalin indulged after the war fell hard upon this brilliant sevitor of the Soviet system. Reliable Account Trepper is still living, as Leiba Domb, in Warsaw, an inconspicuous private citizen. The author met him there in 1965, and found him to be unpretentious and uncommunicative, still a Communist but now concerned only with the publication of Jewish classical literature. Mr. Perrault's book is very long (510 pages) and very intricate. How reliable is it? This is a question which the reader is constantly putting to himself. The bibliography is modest, and there are unspecific references to interviews and documents ("I am not free to say what they were or where they came from. I must ask the reader to bear with me"). The visible underpinnings of the narrative are, therefore, not especially reassuring to the skeptic. At best, he will feel, what we have here is an approximation of the truth. Some such things as related in the book undoubtedly happened, but is this an exact and thoroughly reliable account of them? German Patriot It would seem that Leopold Trepper dealt Hitler many shrewd blows. The same cannot be said of Adam von Trott. Von Trott was five years younger than Trepper, and of a completely different background. He was the fourth of eight children born of a notable Prussian family in which a libertarian tradition had been carefully cultivated. In maturity, he was tall, goodlooking, charming. He prepared for a career in the law, and was a student of Hegel, about whose philosophy of the state he wrote a book. Von Trott was strongly antiNazi. He was opposed to all the aberrations, excesses, and enormities of the Hitler regime. But he was also a staunch German patriot, even a nationalist. In the years between 1933 and the outbreak of World War II, he travelled a great deal, often to England, once to the United States (for a stay of several months), and to the Far East. In the first years of the war, he continued his travels, including another visit to this country. By now he was working with German elements resisting Hitler and bent on his elimination. But always he was suspect abroad. p.,inful Picture He was even thought of as a Nazi agent, and was, by some, styled the chief of a Nazi spy ring operating in the United States.

"I stayed up until the television went off," he said. Father Delano's own interest in astronomy began at age 7, when he saw a meteor race across the sky. "I got a hand telescope," he said, "and kept getting larger ones." He has put together most of his own telescopes, including his present 121;2 inch' reflector model, which is set up behind the Priests' Hostel on Highland Avenue, Fall River. His special interest is in the moon and planets, and he has , made a particular study of- lunar domes, swellings on the moon's surface caused by volcanic action. "I have discovered a dozen domes," he said, adding that such features of the lunar landscape aren't named. "We just give them catalog numbers." He is eagerly anticipating man's journey to Mars, which he thinks will take place in thtl 1980's. "There's probably at least vegetative life there. It will be far more interesting than the moon." Almost Sinful Asked how the man's concept of God might alter in the space age, Father Delano said he thought it would be "almost sinful for us not to find out more about the universe God has made. If He was interested enough to create it, we should be interested enough to investigate it." In stressing the importance of. the space program, the Fall River priest quoted French philosopher-scientist, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin: "Research is adora."""ll"'''''''"IItIIl''''''''''''''III111ll''tllllll'"'''''ll"",I'''ll1I"",,"',"'II11mllll""m"lI

He was in on the plots to kill Hitler, including the one in 1944 which almost succeeded. When that failed, there was a great roundup of all anti-Nazi people, and he was included. He was arrested, his children (one aged two, the other aged nine months) were seized, his wife imprisoned, and he was executed. Mr. Sykes has written at almost unconscionable length (456 pages) of Von Trott, and there are times when the reader's interest wanders and he desperately wishes that the book were more concise and less turgid. But, if one stays resolutely with this work, one gets a painful picture of the dilemma of a patriot in Nazi Germany.

tion." And in an article in the current issue of St. Anthony Messenger, Father Delano notes: "Those who have' become wearied from seeking God by 'involvement,' in 'confrontation' and agitation, would do well to seek him in quiet contemplation -a disposition of mind which the consideration of the starfilled heavens easily induces. For in the fray of daily life and social involvement God is frequently lost sight of, and, as often as not, people who sincerely believe that they are vigorously working in the name of God find themselves being just as strongly opposed by others, likewise persuaded that they are serving God's best interest. To both sides God would say, if only they could hear: 'Be still and know that I am God.' (Ps. 46:10)," The St. Anthony Messenger article, entitled "Apollo 11 Does Not Cheat the Poor," is only part of Father Delano's output. 'He is a frequent contributor of article~ and reports to such journals as The Strolling Astronomer, the Journal of the British Astronomical Association and Planetarium Magazine. As chairman of the New England region of the Astronomical League, he 'will be at a meeting of amateur astronomers from all parts of the nation, to be held next month in Denver. . Asked about the oft-quoted remark by a Russian cosmonaut to the effect that he hadn't seen God while orbiting in space, Father Delano said this betrayed a very naive concept of God. "I think John Glenn gave the perfect answer to that comment when he said, 'The God I worship is not so small that I would expect to meet him in space,''' And in his St. Anthony Messenger article he said, "The astronauts were in a position to appreciate as no other men before them, the words of the prophet Baruch: 'How great, Israel, is the house of God, how wide his domain, immeasurably .wide, infinitely lofty!'

'TRICHUR (NC)-An educator hlis criticized a new University Bill of Kerala state's comunistdominated government as a "replica" of an earlier act that has been challenged by the bishops as unconstitutional. Father Thomas Moothedan, principal of St. Thomas' College here in India, said the new bill, establishing the state's second university at' Calicut, will bring "purgatory if not hell" upon private agencies that have sunk up to $1 million in college education in Kerala state. Father Moothedan cited clauses that empower the government to take over private colleges under certain circumstances, impose a government-appointed officer on their managing boards, and make seniority a prime factor in the appointment of principals. The priest added tha tno selfrespecting private agency can continue to work under these provisions. The earlier university act, passed this year in spite of strong opposition by all churches in Kerala state, has been challenged as unconstitutional in a series of Catholic-sponsored lawsuits pending before the state high court.
