Probably 'no event in recent years SO dramatically demonstrated the barrenness of career government serv.. ice and the reason why government is unable to attract able,_ dedicated civil servants as did the performance of one Max Gluck, nominated by President Eisenhower to be Iy Ignored when It comes to lillo Ing the senior positions overseas. our ambassador to Ceylon Nothing Is more frustrating or on the strength of his $31,­ fundamentally unpleasant for

000 contribution to the Republi­ lCan Party's 1956 political cam­ paign. Mr, Gluck, Questioned • by a e nat 0 r Ful­ bright of Ar­ kansas on his fitness to be our ~: ambassador in this highly sen­ sitive part 01 the world, con­ fessed he did not k now the the n arne of Ceylon's chief of state and thought he knew the name of the Prime Minister of neighbor­ ing India but could not pro­ nounce It, In fairness to Mr, Eisenhower, it Is unlikely that he was aware of Mr. Gluck's contribution to the Party. In a press conference, the President was Indignant When this fact was mentioned. The rewarding of campaign 1C0ntributors and defeated politi­ iCal candidates with diplomatic assignments Is not an Innovation 01 the Eisenhower Administra­ tion, ' HalTY Truman sent party-giver Pearl Mesta off to Luxemburg. And Franklin Roosevelt awarded the Court of St. James to the wealthy and generous Boston Democrat, Joe Kennedy. But the Gluck affair hit the bottom of this absurdity. Something to Laugh About I suppose it drew loud guffaws, In and out of Washington. There Isn't much to laugh about these days, amid all the hokum, phony piety and public relations "savvy" that passes for political integrity. We all got a good laugh out of Gluck slipping on the banana peel of a grade-school question of information. The laugh was not so much on poor Max Gluck as It was on the smart boys around the White House who carried their slickness too far for the stomachs of even our most hard­ bitten, cynical Washington news­ men, with the usual exception of Time magazine which had tried to put a gloss on the affair and salvage some respectability for the party to which it has been committed since 1952. But I dare say that a number of people got no laugh out of the Gluck spectacle. Ceylon's Prime Ministel' Ban­

daranaike has nothing to chuckle about. Prime Minister 'Nehru of India,

a man of sensitive and keen in­

telllgence, must have experienced at least mild feelings of contempt for our nation. And the hundreds of American foreign service career dipiomats iCan hardly cheer this latest evi­ dence of disregard for the high art of conducting international relations. Patronage, of course, Is as old as the history of American poli­ tics, But there are some areas where patronage and the reward for party loyalty must yield to higher considerations. And one of those areas in these days of

the intimate planet must surely

be international l'clations. We need not make the mistake

<Df assuming that career diplo­

matll and foreign service person­ nel. simply because of their I\:areer, are automatically qulified for senior diplomatic posts of full ambassadorial status.

But what is objectionable ill

that the career diplomats are,

with few exceptions. automatical-

the professional diplomat than to be forced to serve under a man (like Mr. Gluck) whose only qualification lor the job Is that he has been a succesful business­ man and has been cleared by tho FBI. Select Most Qualified A businessman can become n' successful diplomat, as Chester Bowles proved In New Delhi dur­ ing Mr. Truman's Administra­ tion. Ahd career diplomats can bo very unsuccessful ambassadors if they focus too narrowly on the tasks that merely come acrOSll their desks each day, But the surest way, I believe. to guarantee ',that our al:llest young men will refuse to go into foreign service as a career. Is to repeat the Max Gluck affair. All that reasonable people would de­ mand Is that the most qualified men in foreign service be selected as Ol\l' representatives abroad. Reasonable people do not ex­ pect that the spoils system In American politics will disappear. despite all the Pijrity and In­ tegrity claims of whatever ad­ ministration happens to be In power. _ But let us restrict patronage to postoffice appointments, domes­ tic bureaus and other less vulner­ able functionary positions. The unregenerate political cyn­ Ic might ,ask: "How much has Ceylon contributed to the Party?" But respecting the national leel­ Ings and dignity of a foreign people, the real ,question should be: "Who is the most qualified man we can send to represent Ull among these people?" One always risks being the prill when moralizing about common. garden variety cynicism. But If It Is priggish to recoil at a system that installs the Max 'Glucks In our embassys when this nation needs every, atom of respect and prestige it can com man d throughout the world, then put me down as a prig.

TOMORROW - St. Joachim, husband of St. Anne and father of the Blessed Virgin Mary. ,He lived In the first century, B.C. Virtually nothing is known of his life. He has been honored in the Eastern Church since its earliest days, and in the Western Church since the l6th century.

Our Lady's Assumption "Rejoice wfth me, all you who love me; fC!r the most High has chosen my heart, to set His throne therein~ and the kingdom of the Son ofHis love." (Offertory of the Mass on the Feast of the Most Holy Heart of Mary.) Today is the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary into.heaven. God would not allow corruption to touch the flesh from which Christ's body was made. In the first Adv~nt of her life, Mary awaited the birth of her Son by working for Joseph. She cooked and cleaned and mended for him, living in secrecy but known to all those around her. , . . . After the Crucifixion and Our Lord's Ascension into heaven, Mary went to live with John: "From that hour' that disciple took her into his own home." There is no secrecy again she lived a life of preparation' for heaven. She had come to another Advent, a preparation for seeing her Son's face in heaven. This second Advent was lived out in the' same way as the first-in caring for someone -this time, the Apostle John, in cooking and mending and cleaning for him. And all the time she was living out God's Will for her, God's way for her to prepare to see hel"'.Christ. o When the Blessed Mother died her body was born up into heaven. Our Lady is there, body and soul, with' Christ, Who is there Body and Soul, humanity and Divin­ .ity. As God sanctified human na~ure by· uniting it to the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity, so He proclaims the holiness of human nature again by bringing Mary's body .. as well as soul to heaven. And so do we try to live out the Advent of our lives hel'.e on earth by imitating Mary---eby dQing the thousand and one routine monotonous tasks of our everyday living, that we may join her and her Son in the. happiness for which we were made. . . The A~sumption of Mary into hea:ven gives the answer to why we were made':'-we were made, body as well as soul-for God and eternity. Mary has shown us the way arid the goal that is reached if we follow the way.' And the way is Christ.

SATURDAY - St. Hyacinth, Confessor. He was a member of ·an· illustrious Pollsh family, who became a Canon of Kracow but joined' the Dominicans after St. Dominic following a. journey to Rome in the early 1200'~. He made three great apos­ tolic journeys, which took him from the Scandinavian peninsula to Tibet. He died, an old man, In Kracow, and was canonized in 1594.

Sometimes the sorrows reced'e and ease, and sometimes they come forward and are vivid. AI­ wa,ys -they are there. In quieter nioments, in lone­ lier times, they bring ,us close to tears even now.

MONDAY - St. John Eudes. Confessor. A Frenchman, he was the founder of the Eudist Fathers and' the nuns of Our Lady of Charity. He contlnued his mis­ sionary labors beyond his 75th. year, and was the author of several ascetical works. He died in 1860.

" TUESDAY - St. Bernard. of Clairvaux, Abbot-Doctor. He was born in l09l near Dijon, France. At the age of 22 after persuading, , 30 young nobleman to follow him. he 'joined the struggling abbey at Citeaux. Upon finishing his novitiate he was sent by his abbot to Clairveaux, where he became regarded as the real founder of the' Cistercians. Dur­ ing his lifetime he founded 68 Cistercian houses, was adviser to popes, kings and councils, and was the preacher of the second crusade. He died in 1153 and was declared a Doctor of the Church in 1830. . WEDNESDA.Y St. Jane Frances de Chantal, Widow. At the age of l6, a motherless child. she was placed under the care of a worldly-minded governess. She offered herself to the Mother of God: She was married to the Baron de Chantal and 'her horne was a model of domestic happi­ ness. After the death of her husband, she entered the reli­ gious life and founded the Visi­ tation Order. In this work she was assisted by St. Francis de Sales. these two who are' gone ahead­ than our boys and girls who are . with us.

World Council Rejects Declaration Of War on Catholic Church WASHINGTON. (NC) -

Two of the most widely quoted delegates at the recent New Haven meeting of the World Council of Churches Central Committee have a long record of anti-Catholic statements. One of them recently Ilhowed a glaring Inconsistency in his utterances. . At one time durin~ the nine-day meeting of 165 representatives of Protestant, Anglican and OrthQdox churches in 50 countries, it looked like the 'council might i'Ol'mally charge the Roman' Catholic Church with suppresIling religious liberties in those iCountries where Catholics are ·'dominant." A delegate who opposed this action said It amounted to "an open declaration of war." , , The ~aJl' !.or.-this actiofl came'·' from Methodist Bishop Sante Uberto Barbieri of Argentina, who said he had been "pleading ~or years" for the council to "stand up" to the Catholic Church. He claimed that Protestants in Colombia have suffered "persecution," and that religious minorities were 0 p pre sse d "wherever the Roman Catholic \Church is dominant." Only last May, while attend­ ing the annual North Texas Methodist Conference in Dallas,

Bishop Barbieri, a gmduate of Southern Methodist University,·

told the Dallas press that "the Protestant movement is expand­ ing rapidly" in Central and South American countries. He said there are five million Protestants in Latin America, and that "If ,mpport from the mother churcho ea in America were cut off. to­ morrow, missions and churches in Latin 'America would survive ... We have trained native clergy who would step In. We have a tipirit of self-determination and self-support." Over 500 Sects . There are 18 major and 485 other Protestant sects In Bishop Barbieri's own Argentina, accord­ ing to statistics from Protestant sources. Some of these sects have hundreds of churches and missions. The total number of Protestants in the country· has been estimated at between 430,000 and 500,000. It has been said that the esti­ mate of two million Protestants in Brazil is conservative. Pro­ testants there are arranging a huge celebration for 1959, to mark the centenary of the anival of the first Protestant sects from the United States. Some. U. S. firms have used their enterprises in Brazil to foster Protestantism in that country. Today, Protestants in Latin America 'operate schools, pub­ l1Rhing houses and powerfUl ra­ dIo stations. The Rev. r)r, John Mackay, president of the Princeton Theo­ log1cal'Seminary, said the coun­ cil eventually should studY fully tile questions raised by Bishop BarbierI. Dr. Mackay. also said )'eligiops llberty "means more" in Communist Czechoslovakia nnd Hungary at the present time than it does in Colombia and Spain. Dr. Mu:ckay is a vice-president of Protestants and other Ameri­ cnDS United for Separation of Church and State (pOAm, a group with headquarters here which Is noted for Its anti-Cath­ oUc attacks. '11'0 Make Study The more inflammatory pro­ poools were sidetracked in favor of a motion "that the executive committee be asked to arrange for studies to' be made of the problem of religious liberty aris­ ing in RomaJ1 Catholic and other countries." It J5 to be wondered if the studies would reach into the Scandinavian "and other coun­ tries" whCl'e Catholics are a mInority, and where. they have suffered disabilities not only of a religIous but also, in some places, of a civil nature. A number of Ilpeakcrs llrose to


oppose the sharply worded pro­ posals alleging persecl,ltion' of Protestants in predominantly Catholic countries. Pastor Charles Westfall of the Reformed Church of France told the delegates: "I am pained to observe that some members' seem ready to make a public statement against the Roman Catholic Church. In oth­ er words, an open declaration of war." He noted that in his own France "Protestants have every opportunity to live in perfect Ii­ berty and increasing respect,"· The New Haven meeting also saw the re-election of the Rev. Dr. Josef L. Hromadka of Prague to the 14-member executive com­ mittee of the World Council of Churches. This action was strongly opposed by some dele­ gates, on the ground that Dr. 'Hromadka had defended .Soviet intervention in the Hungarian ,revolution of last fall, 'and 'criti­ cized the WOl'ld Council of Churches for taking the part. of the Hungarian patriots. One dele­ gate said the Czech minister had made statements "contrary to the whole tenor" of the council at the time of the Hungarian uprising.

statement have already gone to a number of neutral journalists and labor rela­ tions experts who have been following the activities of the McClellan Com­ mittee mol' e carefully t h' a n we :have been

a,ble to do.

There has been a mixed reac­ tion' a mO)l g

these observers to our commen­ dation' of the Committee. Crossed lFingel's Some are inclined to agree tllat the Committee is deserving of the highest praise. It is only fail' to report, however, that others have their fingers crossed about the Committee, They willingly admit that the Committee g'ot off to a good start. but they think· they can detect certain' potentiaJly alarming' indications that some members of the Com­ mittee arid its staff are beginning

to lose their sense of perspective. It is alleged, for example. that

one member of the Committee's staff emotionally upset the teen­ age daughter of a labor leader by questioning her privately and at considerable length about, her father's' alleged dishonesty and by warlJirig hel: that her' father was in serious' trouble with the law. Another member of the staff is reported to have thrown his weight around very crudely sind insultingly in questioning a na­ tionally known labor leader Whose personal integrity (and the integrity of whose union) is com­ pletely peyond dispute. In defense of the Committee it might be said that such mistakes have been the exception rather than the rule. Nevertheless the Committee would be weJl advised to keep close tabs on its investi­ gators, lest repeated mistakes of this type bring the Committee itself into public disrepute. T..he majority of labor leaders, foJlowing the statesmanlike lead of AFL_CIO presidelit, George Meany, have leaned 'over back­ wards thus far to cooperate with the Committee in R spirit of good faith. In return, they have every light to expect the members of the Committee and its staff to

treat them with courtesy and

respect and to refrain from pass­

ing judgmerit on individual labor'

leaders or particular unions until

all pertinent evidence has been

presented. .

Clear Distinctions

, Mr. Meany and his associates

also have a right to expect the

Committee to 'confine its investi­

gation to matters which are

clearly within its competence. This means, first of all, that a clea.r distinet~on should be made between the private and pJIblic or professional mistakes or mis­ deeds of labor readers who are being investigated by the Com­ mittee. Secondly. a clear. distiriction should be made between labor racketeering and the ecollomic and political policies ·of unions. While tlie Committee may legiti­ mately investigate ,tlie problem of racketeering in the 'Teamsters, for example, it has no authority, to investigate ortG .pass judg­ ment on Mr. Hoffa's :E/roposal ta establish a working 9,rr9.ngement (or possibly to effect a meI:ger) between the Teams!;ers ·and sev­ C;:D,1 other unions in the .nela. of

publica!Jy stated that in their

opinion such an arrangement or merger would be. bad' for the country. As individual citizens ii'i1d as members of the United States Senate, they are obviously entitled to· this opinion (which we are inclined to. share), but their Committee, as such, has no authority even to consider the 'question, -much less decide it. Political Capital? Furthermore for the duration of the McClellan inyestigation,

the members of the Committee would be better advised to refrain from making public statements on debatable issues of this kind lest the impression be left that t,hey are speaking officfally for the Committee or that they are trying to use the Committee's well deserved prestige to gain

publicity for their persona1 opin­ ions on matters which are' not

witl?in - the Committee's compe­ tence.

In conclusion, let it be very clear that we 'believe the McClel­ lan Committee, up to the present time, has done a remarkably good job, all things considered. We orily hope that the members of the Committee and its staff

will resist· the inevitable tempta­ tion to make political capital out of the current crisis in the labor moven)ent or to, investigate mat­ ters which are not within the Committee's com\:JetEmce and ju­ risdiction. To succumb to this temptation - as other Congres:" sional committees have been Imown to do - ,would be disas­ trous from every conceivable point of view.

Only ThoseArre Homesick Who Are .Left at Home By Mary ']'jnley Daly

It's lonely around our house these days. The Head of the House sits at the head of the table, the author of this column at the foot and, even the extra leaf removed, the ~i'des stretched out. Mary is on one side, Pat and Markie on the other. Eileen's chair, rand Ginny'S are pushed sending me here, specially right after the wedding that cost $$$. against the wall. Love, love, love, ' . Ginny" When Johnny and Lu and their gang come, that's another litory-the house resound~but they stay only for brief visits. Otherwise, It's Ilwfully quiet, and it stays so d e a den Ingly .. . "picked up" f now that the flurry of pack­ ing wedding presents is over. Needless to say, we didn't expect Eileen,~: married a few weeks ago, to be homesick, t.hough we Imagined she m"lght have a hankerin'. However, we kind of worried about ll-year-old Ginny, away for the first time at iCamp. "Youngest of the family,". we said, "never away from home be­ fore. Bet she's really going through the pangs." Vicarious Anguish

In fact, we could vicariously anguish with Ginny, having our­ lielves endured what is perhaps one of the most frustrating of diseases, a homesickness that makes the present only a dull' echo .of "what's going on at home." Our first taste of It was fresh­ man year In college and, of all things, the song of. the day was "You're a. Mlllion Miles from Nowhere When You're One Little Mile from Home." To this day, ' I can't hear that old tune' with­ (Jut a nostalgic longing for a dusty mid-western town, unex­ <cIting to any but those who knew the loving friendliness of Us residents. And so, mentally translating long-ago emotions into the minds of our young, we took, It for gl'anted that they would miss us as much as we missed them. Today' the VIP mailml\n de­ livered the first letters in his new l'ed white and blue put-put. Eil- ' cen's letter first, because it WR!! on top: "Dear Dad and Mom," she 'lirote, "Thanks a ml11ion fox packing and mailing the pre­ lients. We had' the best time opening them - fun all over again. Setting up housekeeping Is something, isn't It? We're go­ ing slowly, no curtains yet. We eat on that little round antique table. Have just one chair and take turns sftting on the suitcase which is about 1 foot taller than the table." . Followed a complete descrip­ tion of the new home, a thank­ you for the wedding... Having Wonderful Time

Next Ginny's letter, in pencil.· Enclosed' was a page for every one of us (Ginny knows how to get plenty of mileage out of her 3-cent stamp): "It's great here. We're having a wonderful time. There are 3 kids from my school in my cabin. Everybody's swell. "I'm a novice In swimming­ that means next up from begin­ ning. It's fun. Daddy and Mom, I'd advise you not, to come for parents day (We gulped at that lOne) It's a four hour drive each way and we'd get to see you for just an hour. Silly. Nutz. "It's rest hour. now and Jean has a red nose and Susan said she had so much tomato juice it went to her nose. Ha-ba. "A counselor just walked by and saw us WI'iting letters with lOur flashlights and did we get It. She didn't really mean It. "Thank you very much 101'

Well ... Guess the only peo­ ple who are homesick are those left at home.

God needs' no being other than Himself. He not only contains. within Himself the sufficient reason for Hi.s own existence, but every other sUffici.encY. To His 'limitless perfection, nothing' whatever is lacking; there is no need of His nature that s o m e ' iesser being could supply; we shall not know the first thing about ourselves the first there 'is no luxury, even, thing. that some lesser'being could Need of God


bring HillJ. In His own nature is all being. all perfection. all bliss. Why then did He create a uni­ verse? There can be vast the­ ological discus­ sion here but it can be reduced, not too crudely; to ,the single statement that He k new we should like it. Creation brings Him no gain. but it brings us tremendous gain: it means that we are something instead of nothing. with all the possibllities' of life and growth and happiness instead of the mere blankness of, nonentity. Can Glorify God It is a new Jightupon the love of God that our gain c6uld be a motive for His action. He knows that beings were possible who could enjoy existence. 'and He - gave them' existence. By existing , they glorify Him - but who is the gainer by that? ~ot God. who needs nothing from any creature: only 'the creature, whose greatest glory is that he can glorify God. We use the' word create. for this conferring' of existence. God' made all things of nothing. Of what else could He make them? Not of Himself. for He is utterly simple: in Him there are no parts Which He can break of! and. s6 to speak. set up in business on their own. Not of Himself then: and beside Himself. apart from creation. there is nothing. So He used' no material in creating the universe. He made it wholly -.-:. that is indeed the definition of create. to make a thing 'wbolly. 'to make the whole of it. and only God can qo it. A carpenter does not make the whole of a chair, the wood al­ ready exists; a poet does not make the whole of a poem. the words already exist. But God did make the whole of the universe. there was no eXisting material to make it of, and He could do it because there is no limit at all to His power .,.... "He can send His call to that which has no being. as- if it already was" (Romans IV.17L Meaning of Creation For the Catholic all this may seem old stuff.

To realize that one is made of nothing gives a feeling of hardly being there at all. a feel­ ing that one has no 'hoid on exlstencl;l and oUght vanish aWaY.

The well of salvation is deep enough, but few of us have pro­ vided clips. Our Lord depends on us. He gives the flow of grace but we must be the channel.

NEW YORK (NC)~ - 'Two . foreign-made motion pictures have been condemned by th~ National Legion of Decency. 'Fhe pictures ai'e "Passionate' Summer," a French-made movitt distributed in this country by Kingsley, and "Stella," a Greek· made movie, distributed by Bur· styn. . The Legion posted the follow­ ing objection against "Passionate Summer" '~The theme and treatment of this film dwell almost invariably upon subject matter which, Is morally unac­ ceptable and seriously offenslvtt , to the virtue of purity." , Regarding "Stella," the Legion stated - "This picture, in the story it' tells, seriously violates ,Christian and' traditional stand· ards of morality and decency by reasoQ oJ gro"ss suggestiveness in costuming, dialogue and situa­ tions."

The proposed shi~t of both the Giant and Dodger franchises to the West Coast is fraught with clifficulties. J[n so far as the National Leagpe is concerned,. the move would leave barren the New York area! and this, I assume, the senior loop moguls would be extremely reluct­ to 1I0 aU out to haVe the plant readiness for the Navy inau­ ant to do. President Dan in gural on Sept. 21. The vesting Topping of the Yankees has, officials with the responsibility in fact, already indicated of for determining the eligible re­ his intention of claiming the New York Metropolitan area for the American League in the event that the shifts materialize. The formation of a third major league with a West Cost geographical makeup not too unlike that of the present Pacific Cost League has been given serious thought of late. But this is not the only area that seriously entertains major league aspirations. Inter­ national League President, Frank Shaughnessy. has announced. that in the event Brooklyn goes to the Coast. he will seek a Jersey City franchise for his circuit in '58. Ultimately. Shaughnessy would move a club Into Brooklyn and petition for full major status - all within a three year period. Five Teams Affected 'The invasion of P.C.L. territory by either or both the New York ttlubs would, of course, write finis ~o the Coast circuit. In losing Los Angeles, the league would also lose nearby Hollywood, and. concelvebly, San Diego some 120 miles to the south. The loss of San Francisco would. by the same token. mean the loss of Sacra­ mento. And so with the National League ensconced in the two largest cities of the Pacific Coast setup, the latter would. in reality, suffer the paralyzing loss illf five of· its current entries. Whether the Red Sox, who control the San Francisco ter­ ritory. would be willing to sell their rights to a National League entry also is problematical. No such impediment exists in the Los Angeles area. The Dodgers purchased the territory from the Wrigley family last year In anti­ cipation of moving the parent club there eventually. It seems, In the light of the voluminous controversy about to unfold, that this would be a propitious time for Commissioner Ford Frick to announce his retirement. All Star Selections Speaking of the Commissioner, we are reminded of the sugges­ tion he made· recently regarding the selection of players for the annual All-Star game. Mr. Frick proposes that the players them­ l3elves select the teams. The idea has merit; certainly there could be no more Qualified selectors. Under the plan, players would loe barred from voting for mem­ loers of their own clubs. An alternate proposal would have the members of the Base­ loall Writers' Association do the Gelectlng. Wonder how T. Wil­ liams would fare under that Getup? The writers would be faced with 'as great a dilemma as the Southern bemocrats in the election of 1928. In either a:8se, the fiasco that attended the fan balloting this past sum­ mer would be avoided and this principally is what the Commis­ lSioner hopes to effect. In· his opinion, the game could not af­ ford It recurrence of the Cincin­ Iilati ballot-box-stuffing Incident.

The slick fielding third sacker Is the only other Bosox regular in the .300 class . . . The Sox this year - as usual - have been poison to enemy portsiders. They currently own a 16-4 mark against left-handers. Young Billy O'Dell of Batlmore was the latest to join the very select group of oddthrowers who have bested the Sox. Billy Pierce and Bobby Shantz are the others. Years ago When Hal Newhauser was in his prime he rarely made an appearance in Fenway, much to the consternation of the Yan­ kees. But Prince Hal just wasn't effective against the Sox in Friendly Fenway. Sort of makes the achievements of Mel Parnell all the more illustrious:Even now the Sox are carrying only one Port-sider, Dean Stone, and he is used very sparingly. What value a home park? None as far as the Braves are concerned. The National League leaders are batting .265 as a team at home compared to a road rec­ ord of .270. Gre.atest individual difference involves shortstop Johnny Logan who owns a splen­ did .344 road average but is hit­ ting an anemic .167 in County Stadium. Musial vs. A.aron With the fanfare attending the Williams-Mantle struggle for batting supremacy in the American League, there is a tendency here to overlook the ding-dong battle being waged for similar honors In the senior· cir­ cuit. There is a striking parallel in both instances: age versua youth. Stan Musial, six-time bat- •. ting champion of the National League, ill making a determined bid to capture another crown. He seeks to depose youthful Hank Aaron of the Braves who cap­ tured the title last yeal; \\'ith a .328 mar~.

BE A CATCHER, SAYS YOGI: Yogi Berra, whose base­ ball career started on a sand lot near his native St. Am­ brose Parish, St. Louis, believe~ more youngsters should think seriou'sly of careers as catchers in the big leagues. Fewer players want to catch and consequently, there is greater demand for men behind the plate. Yogi, in the ma­ jors 12 Years with the world-champion Yankees, has been named most valuable player three times NC Photo

EDGEWATER PARK, Miss. (NC)-A call for the return of laymen to. the position held in the· early Christian Church was made here by the chairman of the bishop's committee for the Con­ fraternity of Christian Doctrine. Bishop Matthew F. Brady of Manchester. N.·H., said. "we want them to become more conscious of the treasure of their Faith. to know it _better and to be its her­ alds to those who thirst for its ·comfort and consolation." "They played that role in the early Christian Church and we would that they should continue to be 'the light of the world' In this confused and troubled age," he declared. .

ATLA!'lTlC CITY (NC)-The challenge of alcohol can't be met by shifting responsibility, writ­ ing new laws or fashioning neat "'slogans about safe driving, mem­ bers of the Catholic Total Absti­ nellce Union were told. Msgr. ,Joseph M. Lynch, dio­ cesan director of the Propagation of the Faith in Worcester, ana­ lyzed the use of alcohol by youth in his keynote address. "We oonnot disregard the drunkard and the alcoholic." he said. "We would welcome a Quiet, clear-cut answer, but unfortu­ nately there is none." He recommended that young people take a pledge of total ab­ stinence until their 21st y~ar to make reparation for sins of in­ temperance. "Wherever the pledge has been introduced it has brought. about the most heart­ warming results," he said.

Reasons for not drinking, ho said, are based on religious prin­ ciples. social conviction or health reasons. - - - - ----------- ---- --
