LIBERTY and JUSTICE FOR ALL By ROSE MARTIN

,Freedom to embrace a Religious vocation was one of the liberties won by American Catholics through the War of Independence. On the veiling day of the first nun to be professed in the original United States, a Jesuit priest, Father .Charles Neale, declared that it was "by

the happy Revolution of the Government in America" that God "has drawn. us out of our bondage and restored us to our just rights." The symbol of the liberty hailed by Father Neale was Elizabeth Carberry, 47, who on May I, 1972, became a Discalced Turn to Page Eleven

Bishop Cronin will lead a group of thirty American Bishops who will meet dur,ing the Consultation with a group of theologians for study and discussion of a variety of pertinent topics.

Cronin succeeded as Chairman of the Episcopal Committee for the North American College, led a delegation of members of the American hierarchy a year ago at the first Consultation. The new Rector of the North American College, Reverend Monsignor Harold P: Darcy, scheduled this year's gathering in response to widespread interest expressed by many American Bishops. Father Dennis F. Sheehan of Boston, who is program director of the Consultation said, "These consultations are an organized effort to make an exchange between bishops and theologians possible. We stdve to offer a wide spectrum of views and interest. When poss-ib'le, the theologians live in the house, and that makes informa1 discusSiion easy. "Besides the discussions, we invite members of the various Vatican offices to visit and speak to the bishops. In that way, the Vatican people get acquainted with the views and problems of the various dioceses, and our bishops gain f.irc;thand knowledge of the central offices of the Church." .

"Monsignor Shalloo kept advising me that it was time for 'new blood,'" the Bishop stated, "and I supp,ose that he meant that a younger man might come to The Anchor.

Foresees La rger Role for B路lacks In Church HOUSTON (NC) - A black priest said here he believes the age of the black man in the Catholic Church has dawned. The priest. Josephite Father Carl A. Fisher, 29, first black director of vooations of the Society of St. Joseph of the Sacred Heart (Josephite Fathers and Brothers), said his appointment a year ago and the recent election of another black priest, Father Elbert F. Harris, as consultor general of the Josephites were "signs of the times" and added: "Finally blacks will have a voice in the Catholic Church in a conSitructive way."

Fr. Byington Continued from Page One the communications apostolate on a full-time basis. Though Father Byington will reside at Saint Patrick's Rectory in Fall River, he will be able to devote his complete attention and energy to his new responsibilities. "We have long recognized," Bishop Cronin said, "that communications are a vital component of the apostolic mission of the Church in contemporary society. Our hope and expectation is that our new Office of Communications will be a step in the right direction in responding to a definite need. Certainly, I have every confidence that Father Byington, blessed as he is with natural talent and. virtue, will make a definite contribution to the work of the Church and the Diocese in his new position." Bishop Cronin; who has for three years now served as an elected member of the Communications Committee of the United States Catholic Conference, noted that the Decree of Vatican Council II on Social Communications has challenged bishops to utilize instru. ments of social communications in promoting the apostolic endeavors of the Church. He spoke of the establishment of the Diocesan Communications Office and the appointment of Father Byington as its first director as measures inspired by the Council's challenge, designed to enhance the capacity of the Diocese to carryon its mission in the postConciliar Church. Father Byington, the son of Mrs. Ethel McCoomb Byington and the late Maurice F. Byington, was born on March 20, 1939 in Fall kiver. A graduate of B.M.C. Durfee High School, Fall River and Boston College, he entered the armed services in 1960 and served in the Counter-Intelligence Corps and was released from active service in 1965 with the rank of captain. For one year, the new ed,itor of The Anchor served as a special agent for the Federal Bureau of Investigation and in 1966 entered the business world. In 1967, he entered St. Mary's Seminary, Baltimore. Ordained on August 15, 1970 in St. Mary's Cathedral, Fall River by Bishop Connolly, Father Byington was appointed assistant pastor at St. John the Evangelist Church, Attleboro and served as assistant to the moderator of the Attleboro Area CYO. On Feb. 4, 1971, he was 'named a member of the Diocesan 'Commission for Divine Worship. On June I, 1972, he assumed his present assignment as assistant at Sacred Heart Parish, Taunton.

Minnesota Woman Wages Poverty War NORTHF!(EJLD (NC)-Verona Devney wouldn',t have made it through West Point, and her volunteer "army" isn't exactly what you would call spit and .poHsh, but together this gentle, graying Minnesota farm woman and her horde of dedicated volunteers are waging a mgst impressive war against poverty, a war they're winning hands down, one they have been winning from the moment they started. There is no chain of command in Verona's "army." It has no formal organization-no bylaws, ,no officers, no ,dues. In short, it is a model of how not to do ,something - a model that for some reason works superbly. Operation HOPE (Help Other People Everywhere), which began back in 1965 in response to a Southern missionary's appeal for help, is a loosely knit, nationwide network of people helping their less fortunate neighbors. Us purpose is to take surplus and donated goods which would otherwise be dicsarded, make them into useful items and distribute them to the needy. The secret of Operation .HOPE's success~a secret Verona would love to share with the whole world - ,is that everyone connected with it, whether they are on the giving end or the receiving end, is rewarded. Verona said, "Every day I become more than ever conV'inced that the real value of Operation HOPE doesn't lie in what it does for those who receive for those who give. It gets them involved in the world and material help. It's what it 'does the human race, puts a glow in their hearts and minds and lives, and keeps it there." Verona, who is a 'native of St. Paul, admits that her desire to aid the poor is almost an obsession. God has been good to me all my life," she said. "I've always had the feeling that I've got it too good. It's a tremendous responsibility to have too much. If God has given me one grace, it is the realization that you have to help other people." And so, when a 50uthern Catholic missionary came to her

THE ANCHOR-Diocese of Fall River- Thur. Aug. 14.!. 1975

Faith Alive Continued from Page One present state and future plans for religious education in its myriad aspects will take place. Dr. Peter John Giammalvo, Director of Religious Education for the Diocese of Nashville,' and a native of New Bedford, will he one of the featured speakers on "Effective Leadership in Parish Religious Education." A graduate of Bishop Stang High School and Holy Cross College, Dr. Giammalvo studied at Vanderbilt University and the George Peabody College for Teachers. His session will provide some basic leadership skills for per· sons involved in organizing and teaching in parish religious ed· ucation programs. It will address itself especially to the needs of volunteers who teach in parish programs as well as those of the director or coordinator. Dr. Giammalvo is a former parish religious education director and so is eminently qualified to give a practical approach to parish religious education.

Crises in Two Lands According to an article in The New York Times, a welleducated Indian woman in New Delhi lamented the censorship of the once-lively Indian press: " 'Are we1never to find out any more about the things that are happening- in our own country? Are we to be dictated 'to, like peasants in China or Russia?' Then, sadly, she answered her own question: 'It's already happened, I guess, and the surprising thing is that it was done so easily.''' The tragedy of India's fall from democracy is that it is being accomplished so easily'. And Prime Minister Indira Gandhi has brought this about in the classic way: through control of the army and police, arrest the few outspoken opposition members in the political and academic worlds and then clamp a strict censorship on the press. And that is all there is to it. Fearful of much the same specter of a dictatorship of the left, the people of Portugal are putting pressure on the small communist-oriented minority presently in control of the government. A main bone of contention is a Catholic television station that has been seized, with government knowledge and approval, by a handful of Reds. Demonstrations over this last weekend were mounted to insist on the return of this vital means' of communication to its rightful owners. . The people and especially Catholic Church leaders in Portugal see clearly what maneuvering is going on. Once a government can control the army - and. this is a serious question still being worked out in Portugal - and once a government controls the media of' communications, the peopJe have little opportunity to know what is going on .and to do anything about it. The tragedy in India seems beyond recall; the crisis in Portugal is still being played out and it is to be hoped that it will come to a happy conclusion with the will of the majortiy of the Portuguese people able to assert itself.

A Matter of Conviction The President's wife fell into a trap during her television interview in which she indicated that she would not be surprised if her unmarried daughter disclosed she was having an "affair." Mrs. Ford was led down the road to the statement and either she does not have convictions on the matter or wanted to appear to be a "modern mother" or was trying to be so polite and agreeable that she allowed her own values to be submerged. Be that as .it may, she presented the sad sight of a person who just does not or can not stand up and be counted. It is such a relief when one sees - on certain rare occasions - someone on television who states a position of values. This can be done without "kookiness" and with firm politeness. And when it is done in this fashion it invariably is met with respect even if not with agreement. But people are looking for someone who has a position and who is not afraid to· state it with clarity, with firmness, and with unemotional determination. All too often a person with positive values is intimidated into silence or fuzziness, is inflamed into emotional rhetoric that takes the spotlight from his position to him and makes him appear to be less than sane, is unsettled by scorn Of the charge that he is not "with it." It is unfortunate that Mrs. Ford said what she did. It is sad if this is what she believes. It is even sadder if she was talked into the statement or made it against her inner views.

.Urban Ills For the past two weeks the small town of Little Compton, R.I. h2!S been celebrating its tricentenary as a community. For those who were able to attend any of the wonderful celebrations of this event one could not but marvel and admire the sense of community and unity that puzzle out of what was once tightly formed neighborhoods. was evident among the Families that once shared and depeople of this town. A sense pended upon one another have of co-operation and belonging was more than evident as the townsfolk enthusiastically shared in their community anniversary. For many outsiders and visitors it was a fleeting glance of what life might be among a community orientated people and for others a scene that has too quickly vanished from the pages of Amerkan life in this age of community upheaval. The people of this land are swiftly losing their sense of belonging, their spirit of community, their civic pride. In striving for a progress material orientated, too many cities and towns have destroyed the very essence of community. In the upheaval of. wqat is supposed to be urban and civic renewal, millions of citizens have been forced to roam the land like so many displaced persons.

been shattered and divided like so many bricks by the wreckers bulldozer. Not only have familiar landmarks been destroyed but also patterns of living and life. As a result urban unrest together with urban neglect have made the city streets a highway for crime. The decaying cities of the land are now proving to be a challenge to human adaptability. Ethnic and racial tensions are fragmenting neighborhoods as well as disrupting the development and maintenance of stable communities within our cities. In turn those who can flee these urban tensions are placing burdens and problems upon the backs of suburban areas ill prepared to meet the sudden influx of desperate city dwellers. Only the poor are left behind in the man made canyons to battle each other.

Rootless People The wonder boys and whiz kids of urban planning have placed so much emphasis on buildings and highways that they have forgotten the· most impor. tant element that builds community, namely, people. They might have brought to man the skyscraper and the shopping center but they have left him a rootless wanderer. We are fast becoming a society that is learning to be rootless. This rootlessness clearly is asso-

ciated with a decline in companionship, a decline in meaningful group activities, a decline in mutual trust and respect and a decline in basic community psychological needs. It is encouraging a shallow· ness in basic and necessary personal relationships and a total indifference to community problems. For many people it is producing a loss in one's sense of personal well being-leading to a sense of powerlessness and en-

CASTELGANDOLFO (NC) Pope Paul VI praised a group of young Holy Year pilgrims who· had walked 250 miles from the north 'Italian town of La Spezia to Rome, taking turns carrying a cross, when he spoke to thousands during his Sunday Angelus talk here Aug. 10. Referring to a photo in the Vatican daily newspaper L'Osservatore Romano, Pope Paul said: "Today we see in our newspaper the story and the picture of a pilgrimage of young people, taking turns carrying a large heavy cross, coming on foot by long and wearisome stages, resting wherever possible, over'the 400 kilometers which lead from La Spezia to Rome, the city central to our religion." Pope Paul asked: "Is this a sign of the new generation? Do these young people become the avant-garde of hope and daring for us and for am"

Refuge of Incompetent "No unsolved proble~ in medicine or surgery is solved by killing the patient. To kill the sick man is the refuge of the lazy, the incompetent, the unscrupulOUS, who meet the' problems by asserting no problem exists." -Blakely couraging a life style of hedon· ism. If" we are to truly' renew and restore our cities and towns we must once mOre get down to basics and begin to realize that man is ~ social animal. He needs as fundamental to his total well being not the material junk that machines produce but rather a sense of community and a sense of continuity. As we begin <to celebrate the bicentennial of this land, we must also begin to rediscover ways to restore the natural human community. We must sincerely seek out ways and patterns of living that will permit us to enjoy some sense of continuo ity in our lives, so that all of us can really feel that we have a place in the ongoing stream of life.

Cardinal Scores Busing Violence I n Boston Area BOSTON (NC) - "The actual physical violence we witnessed this past year in Boston is wrong -50 wrong," said Cardinal Humberto Medeiros of Boston. "It is a rejection of our vocation to strive to reconcile all men with one another in Christ." In a statement issued by the cardinal on busing-related violence, he said that it is his hope to penetrate "the consciences of many who call themselves 'Chri5tians' but who casually tolerate - and sometimes even encourage - physical violence toward other racial and ethnic groups." "Violence also raises its ugly head in such spiteful phrases as 'nigger', 'whitie', 'spic', and othp-r ob5cenities which blaspheme the dignity of God's image in man. All too often this past year, their use polluted the atmosphere of our city, also the facile' application of the term 'racist' did little to stem the city's escalation of emotions. Frequently, legitimate concerns and perspect ives were dismis5ed and sp'irits slashed by the cruel employment of this word. My brothers and sisters, dialogue and con3tructive cooperation demand courtesy toward and respect for all men and everyma:1." Personal Penan~c The cardinal went on to say' that the busing concern is the concern of everyone in the archdiocese, not just those who live in Boston. "I do not wish to confine this message .to >its inhabitants alone," he said, "The suffering of the Christian community in Boston, the anguish, frustration and fear of black, white, red, yellow and brown is the concem of everyone in the archdiocese. As Christians, we must never forget that we arc called to 'bear one another's burdens' (Gal. 6,2)."

He added "each of the faithful to undertake some personal penance for the next two weeks that the goals of peace, justice and freedom for all might become a reality in our city."

Charges Supreme Court Heartless MILWAUKEE (NC) - A majority of the U. S. Supreme Court seems determined to strike down all laws that aid children in Catholic schools, the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights has charged. In its July newsletter, the Catholic League condemned the decision in the Meek vs. Pittinger case in which the U. S. Supreme Court rejected major provisions of a Pennsylvania .auxiliary services law. The law provided state aid to nonpublic schools in the form of counseling speech and hearing therapy, and related services. The League termed the decision "heartless" because it deprived "the poorest of children of hearing and visual tests, of remedial and correctional services," and further deprived "disadvantaged children of educational, physical, and psychological heJp they need to cope with congenital problems because, the court said, these children are in Catholic schools."

Shrin·e to HOllor Msgr. Flanagan BOYS TOWN (NC)-A shrine will be built in Boys Town's Dowd Memorial chapel in remembrance of Msgr. Edward Flanagan, the founder of Boys Town. Father Robert P. Hupp, director of Boys Town, said that the crypt now holding Father Flanagan's remains will be moved from the baptistry on the east side of the chapel to the planned shrine, which will be built on the west side.

Educator Notes Parochial School Children Entitled to Chapter 766 Benefits By PAT McGOWAN Kids wanting to go to summer school? Shedding tears when a_ four-week session ended? Teachers so involved that they took "their" youngsters on weekend excursions? It all happened this summer at the Fall River Middle School, where Southeastern Massachusetts University (SMU) sponsored a six-week Learning Disahilities Practicum for 20 teachers from area school systems, designed. to help them identify and cope with children's Jearning problems. As well as the adults, 20 learning-disabled children, ages 8 to 13, were involved in the program, attending classes for four of the six weeks and enjoying a one-to-one relationship with the adults learning t,ow to help them. "It was really touching on the chHdren's last day," said Mrs. Peter Healey, director of the program and a member of Sacred Heart Parish, Fall River. "We had a little party and it was like the last day of regular school, with all the farewells. Some of the adult students hadn't realized how attach~:i they had become to the children." Mrs. Healey, director of education for perceptually handicapped pupils in the Fall River school system, headed a team of expert teachers giving the summer course. They included Sister Ann Boland, SUSC, principal of) the innovative Holy Union Primary School in Fall River, who taught mathematics methods; Mrs. Eleanor McCarthy, New Bedford, a specialist in physical exercises designed to teach children gross and fine motor control; and Mrs. Janice Maynard, Fall River, who instructed participants in special methods of teaching reading, writing and spelling. Mrs Healey said that the children who were enrolled in the summer program are all receiving ongoing training through her department, but that the extra attention they received this summer was a definite plus for them. "You can't measure the things that happen when two people are together in such a relationship over a considerable period of time," she said.

She noted that the course participants as well as learning specific teaching skills, were instructed in the process of making core evaluations of leamingdisabled children. Core evaluations are a series of tests and interviews with a child, hi5 parents and other involved individuals, designed to pinpoint learning problems and produce an ·individual "prescription" for dealing with them. For Parochial Pupils Such evaluations and subsequent teaching aids are mandated by Chapter 766 state legislation, she said, and she stressed that they are available to parochial and other private school youngsters as well as to public school pupils. If a parochial school ,is unable to supply a service needed by a particular chi'ld, she explained, he or she may receive it under publk school auspices, usually by going to a nearhy school or special center for a part of the regular school' day or week. Help could include audiovisu:l1 aids for children with hear-ing or vision difficulties, special school settings for pupils with emotional or family problems, or special teaching methods for children unable to learn basic skills under normal classroom conditions. Such methods were emphasized at this summer's program. Mrs. Healey. said the Middle School, a new building, offered an idea'l setting. "It was easy to get down on the carpeted floors to do exercises with the children, we had a'ir conditioning, a quiet location-what more could you want?" What sort of chil4 can benefit from the special techniques taught this summer - what should parents and teachers look for in determining whether or not a child is learning disabled? "If a child is not keeping up in school or is not up to his peers in any other section of his life, we should ask why not," said Mrs. Healey. She noted that very often only a slight adjustment in a child's normal school life is necessary to help him achieve greater potential. "Simple things like giving him a lighter work load, providing a study spot with no distractions,

us-ing a slightly different approach in teaching reading or arithmetic - for some children this is aU that's needed," she said. Commenting that there were 16 boys to four girls in the summer program, which ends tomorrow for adults and closed last week for the children, Mrs Healey said that no one really knows why more boys than girls seem to be learning disabled. "J say 'seem,' " she commented, "It may be that girls are better at covering up any problems they may have!" But teachers, aded by programs such 'as Mrs. Healey direGted, are getting better at uncovering such problems and helping the children who possess them.

Father Hupp said that the ·construction of the shrine will enable more people to view the founder's tomb ·and further enhance the memory of the man who made Boys Town possible. "The shrine will allow our many friends who visit the home each year to file by the tomb and pause to offer a prayer if they wish. The present location is very small and very difficult for visitors to see the tomb. We have thousands of friends tour the oampus each year. and every one of them asks to see Father Flanagan's burial place. "It will be a most appropriate shrine and is now being designed. There is no timetable for the project but we would hope to start as soon as possible.

"I feel this project will be one more way to demonstrate our love and gratitude to Father Flanagan whose vision and concern for yoU'th created Boys Town some 58 years ago. This beautiful shrine, located in the chapel he ·Ioved so much, seems a most fitting tribute to his spiritual and humanitarian efforts for homeless and troubled youth."

Summler Camp's GreatEspecially for p1arents I have never seen my friend, Mom Stoutheart, get upset. She stays calm under situations that would send the rest of us off to an asylum.

They earned the rest of their funds mowing lawns and doing odd jobs around the neighborhood. "I haven't had a complaint in two days," she continued. "I guess I've heard the last of it. I do hope that Mrs. Pickey's hedge grows again. She really shouldn't have told them she wanted it pruned close. Phone Rang "I hope they're okay. It's ten days, and I haven't heard.

Advocate of Unborn Lobby Congress WASHINGTON (NC)-An ecumenical group of more than 200 persons from six Eastern states spent July 30 here lobbying Congressmen to act on a constitutional amendment to protect the unborn. . A spokesman for the group, John' Mawn of Ronkonkoma, N. Y., president of Families for Life, area organization, said the group was seeking "to find out from Congress why they have failed to act" on the appeal made by more than 25,000 persons last Jan. 22 at a March for Life rally here. The rally called for a constitutional amendment to reverse the effects of the U. ·S. Supreme Court decisions on abortion. The decision in 1973 struck down most state restrictions on abortion. The constitutional amendments subcommittee of the Senate, chaired by Sen. Birch Bayh (DInd.) has completed hearings on constitutional amendments related to that decision and is expected to begin deliberation.s on the amendments this fall.

PHOENIX (NC)-The Diocese of Phoenix has filed suits in federal court aga'inst four dairies and five bakeries in Arizona, claiming that price fixing has caused the diocese through its rectories and schools to pay higher prices for food than it would if the companies had not conspired to fiix prices at artificial levels. The· diocese seeks triple damages from the dairies and bakeries, which were convicted of price fixing in Arizona. One suit named as defendants Borden, Inc., Carnation Co., Formost-McKesson, Inc. and Shamrock Foods. The four dairies and five of their executives pleaded no contest last fall to criminal charges of fixing milk prices. They were ordered by U. S. District Court Judge Carl A. Muecke to furnish large volumes of milk to several charities, including the' St. Vincent de Paul Charity Dining Room here where more than 6,700,000 free, hot meals have been served to the needy during the past 23 years and where meals are served every day of the week. A second suit named as defendants Holsum Bakery, Inc., Rainbo Baking Co. of Phoenix, Rainbo Baking Co. of Tucson, Ba,ird's Bread Co. and C. J. Pat. terson Co., operator of Serv-Us Bakeries. The five bread com. panies and six of their execubives were fined more than $125,000 in May after pleading no contest to price-fixing charges. The sentencing of the dairy executives has been postponed until Sept. 15 by Judge Muecke. The suits filed requests that the diocese be awarded triple the amount it was damaged by the price fixing. That, amount will be fixed either by a jury or by the court. .

, daughters are now the ones planning school wardrobes with those issues in their laps. Glancing over their shoulders, listening to their comments and browsing through their section of the stores, I can agree that there are some lovely clothes on the fall scene for high schoolers, those who are college bound, and even the ageless woman who loves smart sportswear. Sweaters are everywhere and they are truly lovely. Turtle necks, crew necks, and the classic cardigan are holding their own with really decorative sweaters becoming the conver5ation pieces. Bright Sweaters For those gals who loved the decorative T shirts, it follows that their sweaters should be as bright and young-looking as the tops they have been wearing all summer. Scandinavian designs can be found in many of these attractive knjts, and if someone in your family is a talented knitter, then why not put in a pitch for a hand made one. If you don't succeed, however, don't get discouraged, for many of the readyto-wear versions have the distinctive look of a hand-knit. While the sleeveless sweater may not be as popular ,as it has been, do look for it to add a layered 10Qk to a young wardrobe. Some of the newer versions have a capped sleeve effect that gives them a "this year" lOOK. Other

Diocese Issues New Marriage Guidelines DAVENPORT (NC)- The Davenport diocese has joined the growing ranks of U. S. Catholic dioceses that have issued guidelines on the preparation of young couples for marriage. The new rules issued here apply to marriages in which one or both persons is under 21. The rules provide for a 90-day waiting period from the time the couple first contacts the parish priest until the time of the wedding. Announced by Bishop Gerald F. O'K.eefe of Davenport; the rules require that during the 90d~y period the couple attend a marriage preparation conference and at least four meetings with the priest who is to officiate at the wedding. The four meetings with the priest are to cover such topics as preparation for the ceremony, the spiritual element of marriage, the Church's teaching on marriage, a reinforcement of topics covered at the preparation conference and planning for the liturgical celebration on the wedding day.

Unu,sual Experim,ent Sisters Live at High-Rise HomeFor the Elderly !DETROIT (NC) - To the residents of Elmwood Park Plaza here, Adrian-Dominican Sisters Marie Carmelita Brown and NOl'ita McDonQugh are special people. The Plaza is a high-rise home for the elderly, and the two nuns, both in their 70's, are fulltime tenants. Their residency is an unusual experiment. Usually, retired sisters go to a retirement house or if necessary to a nursing home. Before Sister Norita came to the Plaza in February of this year, she lived at a home for aged sis-ters in Cincinnati. Sister Irene Marie, provincial superior of the St. Catherine's province of the Adrian-Dominicans, explained how the move came about.

\

The Elmwood Park complex mixes senior citizens with handicapped people. Of the 202 apartments in the building, 33 are designed specifically for the handicapped. According to James Few, manager of the building, 40 per cent of the residents get a rent supplement from the government. They pay one-quarter of their income, which is mostly Social Security money, as rent. The population is split 50-50 between whites and blacks.

THE ANCHOR-Diocese of Fall River-Thur. Aug. 14, 1975

Sees Landmark in History Of Religious Dialogue .Commonweal magazine is currently running a series of articles by non-Catholic writers on the general subject, "What I Think About the Roman Catholic Church." The second article in the series (8/1/75) by Leo Pfeffer, a well known constitutional lawyer the State of Israel without being who as the chief legal anti Semitic "even though there spokesman for the American is strong and practically univerJewish Congress during the f>al identification between Jews

Priest Urges Portuguese Continue To D·emonstrate For Freedom VILA NOVA DE FAMALICAO (NC)-The people of this northern Portuguese city, the scene of recent anti-communist violence, were urged to continue to demonstrate for the survival of free- . dom by their pastor. 'Father Joaquim Fernandes, at the funeral of a 19-year-old youth. Luis Carneiro Barroso, killed by troops during an attack on communist hel!dquarters here by citizens, said that the people of Famalicao are imbued with a Christian concept of life and a desire for peace. "We are a profoundly free people. and want to remain so," the priest said in his sermon, .carried .over loudspeakers to an overflow crowd. "We are defending the survival of a Christian society where man is responsible for his acts and is not a machine," Father Fernandes said. He then asked the people to attend an anti-communist rally at the neighboring city of Braga, a Catholic stronghold of about 120,000 inhabitants. Rallies after Sunday Masses there were called in support of the bishops' repeated requests to the ruling armed forces, - that freedom of information be fully., restored in Portugal. Socialist and Catholic newspapers and radio and television broadcasts have been sharply curtailed by the government. At Coimbra, half-way between Lisbon and Braga, some 20,000 Catholics demonstrated for freedom of worship and freedom of information. Chanting slogans and holding religious emblems, the crowds defied threats by local left-wingers that "trouble will follow" if Catholics demonstrated. The threats did not materialize. "A Church united will never

be vanquished," said posters car-

ried by the demonstrators. "Christ, Our Life and Freedom," said others. At FamaHcao crowds wrecked the Communist party headquarters and shops of known communistsafter military authorities delayed delivery of Barroso's body for a full day. The young male nurse and a 34-year-old tractor driver, Laurentino Carvalho, were killed :by troops defending the communist headquarters.

DETROIT (NC) - A General Motors official, answering a group of Church critics, has said that the corporation's management does not believe that tts presence in Chile will either strengthen a repressive government or implies any approval of that country's current government. In a letter to Gen~ral Motors Corporation, seven Catholic and eight Protestant church officials had expressed "deep dismay" at news that GM is bidding to become one of Chile's three major automakers. \ That letter sugge&ted it would be "immoral... and economically unwise" for GM to lend support to the government of Gen. Augusto ~nochet because of lts "numerous violations of human rights and documented cases of torture:' The letter charged that GM "would be giving a national and international legitimation" to a repressive government. The 15 Signers represent churehagencies that hold stock in GM, suggesting that the corpOMtion's -expansion in Chile may ,be made an issue in next year's round of stockholders' meetings. Answering the letter, GM ~ice president Anthony DeLorenzo said: "The first question to be answered corn:erning any investment at home or in a foreign country is whether a satisfactory return can be made on the stockholders" investment." ~neral DeLorenzo said Motors "feels lit has a moral obligation to .the Chileans we employed. If at all possible, we should do our best to have these people continue in productive jobs. "There is a question of whether our disagreements and disapprovals will improve the lot of the people involved if we as a nation withhold diploma,tic recognition, or we as a business withdraw from participation:'

Albany Priests Fill Out Report Card on Bishop ALBANY (NC)-As part of a long-range planning program for the A·iibany diocese, every parish priest of the 14-county diocese in upstate New Y{)rk was asked to respond to' a 13question "report card on the chancery and the bishop. Father Michael Farano, associate director of pastoral planning for the diocese, said that "some very frank questions" elicited "some very frank answers." In 'an ,interview in Crux, a newsletter for priests .and Religious published here, Father Farano said that criticisms, "positive points, proposals" about the pastoral plan "will all go int{) the planning process for the chancery." Bishop Edwin B. Broderick of Albany spoke of the planning process as a "theological learning process" with "extra dividends." He said that' besides the priests, the process "involves the people directly." He continued:: "It also concerns itself with each participant's concept of the Ohurch. Some have said to me that even if no plans were formUlated, the process itse1f was for them a new insight into the Church. Better Understanding "Because they were able to sit down with some fellow parishioners and talk about goals, plans for their parish and tie them into a program of goals for the diocese, many came to a better understanding of and appreciation for the whole Church." As a result of a pilot program, each of 14 parishes has entered a "covenant of responsibility" with Bishop Broderick. The bishop said that {)nce he receives these covenants "and the planners are able to sit down and go over them al1, we'll have a better idea about the diocese~wide programs." He added: "we'll be able to work more cogently on goals' and objectives for the entire diocese." The planning process involves a determination of mission and roles of a defined group, the formulation of an action plan, the wr.iting of a covenant of accountability and a performance review.

LA PAZ (NC) Ignoring Church requests for a trial instead of expulsion, the military government of Gen. Hugo Banzer ousted from Bolivia three Spanish women missionaries on charges of aiding an illegal political group. Sisters Ana Marie Ajuria, superior of the Mercedarian Sisters, and Cristina Recorder of the Sacred Heart Congregation were placed aboard an airliner headed for Spain July 22, along with lay helper Ana Lidia Franc. The three had been arrested 10 days earlier at a parish in the highland city of -Oruro during a meeting of leaders of mine and farmw{)rkers of the Bolivian Workers Federation (COB), banned in November during a government crackdown on rebellious miners. In reply to government charges of subversion, the Bolivian bishops and the Confederation of Religious had asked for a trial to clarify their alleged participation in the meeting. Earlier Church sources in Orura said the nuns had been asked to do kitchen and other household duties for the parish of Agua de CastiUa, where the meeting took place. Some 30 campesino leaders were arrested. . The government is also ignoring a July request by the Bolivian bishops for amnest(y for political prisoners in Bolivia as a Holy Year gesture in a predominantly Catholic country. "Such gesture will foster a climate of justice, charity, freedom and respect for the dignity of the human person; and this will be beneficial to the whole society," the Bolivian Bishops', Conference said in their petition.

'York, N. Y. 10003, 213 pages, $7.95). Its chief character is Anthony Maloney, 29, assistant professor of history at McGill University, Montreal. Visiting California, Maloney stops overnight at a motel ,in Carmel. There he dreams of a vast collection of Victorian artifacts. When he gets up in the morning and looks out the window, he see" this collection arranged in th:: parking lot. Examining it, he findS it to be real and authentic, and corresponding perfectly with his dream. Fake or Genuine It is路 visible and tangible to others: the motel proprietor, the police, the press. News of it spreads rapidly. Experts come to examine it. They disagree: it is fake, it is genuine. The originals of some of-the items still exist in museums. But those of other items have long since been destroyed, 路and are known only by descriptions in books. The destroyed originals of at least one set of items were known to only a handful of people. Maloney goes on dreaming the same dream. It is as if the collection would vanish if he did not continue to dream it every night. But then there is a change in his dream. It becomes one in which he is obsessively monitoring the collection, keeping it under ,constant scrutiny, endlessly tracking it on a television screen. This is an excruciating experience,and to avoid it, Maloney shuns sleep. He keeps himself awake by frantk activity, and reaches ,the point where he simply cannot sleep. Little by little, the coHection deteriorates, and so does he. Which causes which? Eventually the distraught Maloney commits suicide. Meanwhile, a management concern has undertaken to exploit the collection. A nearby tract of land is acquired, and on it is built the Great Victorian Vil'Iage, complete with motels, restaurants, shopping plazas, and 'all manner of pseudoVictorian exhibitions and amusements.

KNOW YOUR FAITH A Lived Expression of Faith By MARY MAHER Now that Watergate has waned we can always tune into "Love of Life" to get our daily fare of the problematic. At this writing ,that morning television program, badly named, features one mayoral graft, two-and-onehalf affairs, one alcoholic problem, one young girl afraid of sex, one young man who hates his parents, a prostitute who likes her profession and an old lady saddened by all of the above. It outdoes anything St. Paul cautioned his Corinthians to avoid. It is an inferno without Dante's guiding hand to distinguish the circles. If the program were not interspersed with ads for drain opener, toaster ovens and angler brooms, the normal viewer would surely have a neurotic world view. I wonder why we watch it. Could it be that we like to see problems rolled out and then melodramatioally solved with media magic? Do' we gain hope by watching others resolve their problems? (Who ever heard of an unresolved morning serial. These questions lead us to the nature of hope. Is hope a virtue of cr,isis management, a gift that comes therapeutically in rough, depressed times?

"OUR HOPE IS IN THE NAME OF THE LORD": Sleeping in a cardboard box in a weed-strewn parking l?t near downtown Indianapolis, an alcoholic seems to be In a hopeless situation. NC Photo palms of my hands" (Is 49:15-16). Emmanuel: God With Us Our hope in the Lord is center on Jesus, the Son of God who became fully and truly one of us. In Jesus God Himself exper·ienced the loneliness and heartache, the treachery and suffering that we experience. Jesus, true God become true man, teaches us how to be men. Because Jesus is our EmanuelGod with us and for us-we can make Paul's words our own: "For I am certain of this: neither death nor life, no angel, no prince, nothing that exists, nothing still to come, not any power, or height, nor any created thing, can ever come between us and the love of God made visible in Christ Jesus our Lord" (ROll) 8:38-39). Because of Jesus we can have hope. But when we say that we can ·have hope, what do we mean? By hope we do not m~an an easy-going optimism, a belief that "everything is going to work out all right in the end no matter what." The God of the Christians, the only God, is not some kind of Mighty Mouse who will swoop down to save us in the nick of time no matter what. No, the God in Whom we beHeve and in whom we pin our hopes is a God who is indeed always ready to be with' us in our struggle, but He is a God who can be with us only if we let Him. He does not force Himself on uscould a friend do that? We have to let Him come to live in our hearts and to be with us, and we can do this only if we open our hearts to Him and to all our brothers and sisters who are His images.

Cubans Oppose Ending Embargo

Portuguese Bishops Protest Nationalization of Catholic Radio LISBON (NC)-The Portuguese bishops, protesting publicly against the ruling Revolutionary Council's announced decision to take over the Catholic-owned Radio ReMscenca, charged the government with failure to stand up to violent minorities. The bishops denied that labor difficulties within Radio Renascena were at the root of the takeover, but rather a widespread campaign of calumnies against the Church. The bishops pointed out that the majority of workers at Radio Renascena supported them. Eighty employees of Radio Renascenca, protesting against its occupation by 16 communistled workers, charged them with depriving others of their livelihood. The bishops also refused to accept an administrative commis· sion appointed by the Revolutionary Council to run Radio Renascenca. The military group had given assurances that the committee would guarantee the Church the use of the station, along with other groups. Meanwhile, the leader of the Socialist party, Mario Soares, warned that his followers were prepared "to paralyze the whole country in protest against what we consider an attack on the intelligence of our people through the manipulation of news by minority groups." Soares, formerly foreign minister and now a minister without portfolio', was speaking to Socialist newspaper workers. Extreme leftists were still occupying' the ,Socialist newspaper Republica. He declared that nothing is more important in Portugal than the struggle for a free press. The Revolutional Council's announcement that it was nationalizing all radio stations constituted a reversal of its earlier order that Radio Renascenca be returned to the Church. The reversal was seen here by observers as a move by the government to placate the more radical groups among its leftist supporters.

VATICAN CITY (NC)-The issue of compusory sex education for children in Danish public schools has been taken to the Strasbourg European Court of the Rights of Man for a decision, Vatican Radio reported Aug. 8.

ORLANDO (NC)-Members of Cuban communities in central Florida interviewed recently seem opposed to a possible lifting of the embargo imposed by the Organization of American States against Cuba 11 years ago.

Forces Movement, which controls the Revolutionary Council, has shown reluctance to dislodge the ultra-leftists from the station. Radio Renascenca's management supported the protest of the employees against deprivation of their jobs by the communist occupation. The management called on the Revolutionary Council to uphold its former decision to return the radio facilities "to the rightful owners." The employees' statement had said of the council's earlier deci· sion: "This was a decision in defense of the real workers, of the freedom of information and of the Church's right to use the radio station for its mission."

Hope Continued from Page Thirteen death, has been overcome by Christ's resurrection and ascension. Because Jesus is alive now, risen and glorified, we have someone in our human history who overcomes evil, death, sin. Because 'this Jesus who is alive is faithful, we can trust Him in a way that we cannot trust any other being. Once we come to know Christ through faith, we become more attracted to Him through love. It is through our love that our trust in Him grows. This gives us new courage and hope. We trust in Him to do with us what we can't do by ourselves. This does not mean that we sit back and do nothing. We open to Him and cooperate with Him by recognizing that our own human weakness can be overcome by His power and love. When we love enough, we trust enough. This means that our hope will cause great things to happen in ourselves and in our influence 'on and for others. We' will find ourselves exe'l-ting :initiative and responding to needs in a way we never thought possible. When enough Christians face this world's problems with Christian hope as the energetic power behind our actions, we will see transformations which could not be possible otherwise. Lov&oFilled Lives

"The embargo was imposed when it was' discovered that Cuban Premier Fidel Castro had infiltrated Venezuela and other Latin American countries," said Dr. Luis M. Perez of Sanford. "Since the infiltration has continued, I see no reason to discontinue the embargo," he said. "To do so would be interpreted by all Latin American nations as permission for anyone to insult and attack the United States as Castro has." "Lifting the embargo would only help Castro," said Pedro Ramos, a businessman in Orlando. "Castro has nothing to offer the United States and everything to gain from us." "Lifting the' embargo would only destroy all hope of anticommunist forces in Cuba for U. S. SUppOllt," said Ramos. "These people have been fight· ing freedom for years. "I Imuw," Ramos said.

Bishop Venancio Says Portugal Will Never Succumb to Communism WASHINGTON (NC)~Portu­ gal is "going through an hour of difficult triaL" but its people will never succumb to communism, according to a Portuguese bishop whose former diocese includes the famed Marian shrine at Fatima. >Bishop Joao Pereira Venancio, the world president of the Blue Army of Our Lady of Fatima, here in New Jersey for a weeklong meeting of national leaders of the Blue Army at its U.S. headquarters, declined to comment further on the current political situation in Portugal. "The Blue Army," he said, "is in no way political and has undertaken no special action in favor of Portugal. • "Blue Army members do now as they have always done: they endeavor merely to live the message of Fatima, the message of prayer, penance and reparation." Asked if he felt the people of Portugal ca.n withstand the ap· parent determination of the leftwingers to downgrade and even· tually suppress the Church, the 71-year-old former bishop of Leiria, Portugal, said: "I have always understood the promise of Our Lady that th<~ 'faith will always be kept in Portugal' to mean that Portugal would never succumb to com· munism, which is the synthesis of all the 'errors of an atheist Russia,' which Our Lady prophe. sied would spread through the whole world if her requests are not heard." Bishop Venancio continued: "But I know that Portugal must suffer for either one of two reasons: either because we have not responded sufficiently to her message; or, because we have reo sponded, and even as the children of Fatima took - suffering upon themselves when they accepted the message from Our Lady, so Portugal must expect the rage of Satan whose defeat in our day was announced at Fatima when Our Lady said: 'In the end my Immaculate Heart will triumph ... Russia will be converted and an era of peace will be conceded to mankind,' " As for the faith of the Portu· guese, Bishop Venancio cited this example: "Last May 13, despite a bomh threat, one of the greatest crowds in history - estimated as high as one million, which is about a tenth of our population-came to Fatima to pray for our nation following the recent coup. This was in effect a tremendous dem· onstration both of their faith and of t1wir loyalty,"

Deacons in U.S. V:ATICAN CITY (NC) - Half of the world's -permanent deacons are in the United States, Vatican Radio said Aug. 8. Of the 1,600 permanent deacons, 800 are in the United States, it broadcast.

With the Blue Army under constant attack by pro-commu· nist newspapers in Portugal, Bishop Venancio declined to comment further about the pres· ent situation in his country. However, one Blue Army lead· er had this comment: "In the opinion of many, most Portuguese would rather stay and be martyrs if necessary rather than flee before a militant atheist minority who are trying to choke communism down the throat of their Terra de Santa Maria (Land of Our Lady). "A few weeks ago, in Rio Major, halfway between Lisbon and Fatima, the entire town came out with pitchforks and scythes to face the communist· led army. 'Shoot us,' they said, 'if you want to preach communism here,' The troops, and the communist doctrinaires who had come to persuade the town that communism was good for them, withdrew rather than create a town full of martyrs," Bishop Venancioand John M. Haffert, international director of the Blue Army, left Aug. 9 for a nine-day pilgrimage to a number of U.S. cities, carrying with them the Icon of Our Lady of Kazan and the Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Our Lady of Fatima.

LONDON (NC)-The failure of a parliamentary committee to recommend action by Parliament on legislation to restrict abortions has killed the measure for the current session of parliament. The Select Committee on the Abortion (amendment) Bill issued an interim report recommending immediate government action to improve the operation of -the abortion law, but without radical change. The amendment bill was intro· duced by Labor party Member of Parliament James White of Glasgow. In February, the House of Commons agreed in principle to the amendment bill, but the government submitted it to the select cQmmittee for study. The bill could be reintroduced in the next session of Parliament. The committee report urged that private abortion clinics should be required to comply with a scale of fees set by the government in order to receive approval and that details of financial arrangements other than fees, between such private clinics and doctors, reference agencies or advice bureaus should be published.

Holy S.ee' to Sign Security Pact VA11ICAN CITY (NC) - The Holy See is to be a signatory to a document to be signed at the Helsinki, Finland, summit Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe on July 30, not as a temporal power, but in a joint effort to build peace in the world, Vatican Radio broadcast July 22. "The Holy See could not remain aside, remain indifferent to an initiative for collaboration, peace and development which attracts the adherence, not of a limited group of countries but, of practically all European states", said the broadcast. "The Holy See, added Vatican Radio, "could not ignore an initiative which, in what Europe represents, interests the entire family of nations, and in a particular way the countr>ies which through geographic or other reasons are most tightly linked to the old continent." Vatican delegations have attended every meeting on the 15nation Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe over the last two years either in Helsinki or in Geneva Switzerland. They have been led by toplevel Holy See diplomats of the Council for the Public Affairs of the Church, Archbishop Agostino Casaroli, secretary and Msgr. Achille Silvestrini, undersecretary. At all such conferences the Vatican delegates have ,been recognized as :participating members because of the Holy See's special sphere of influence over and above mundane affairs, said Vatican Radio. The Helsinki Conference was called to discuss three specific issues: deliniation of Europe's post-World War 11 frontiers, cooperation in areas of science, technology and ecology, and the free circulation of men and ideas irrespective of ideologic:al boundaries.
