Bishops Ask Faithful

WASHINGTON (NC) - The nation's Catholic Bishops have urged members of the Church and its agencies to get personally involved in the quest for harmony during the present racial crisis. Individual Catholics and Church groups should sponsor biracial dis­ cussions of mutual problems peal in a historic joint pastoral letter addressed to the nation's and concerns, the Bishops' 43 million Catholics. said. They urged similar


action by civic associations. "It' is only by open and free exchange of ideas that we can understand the rights and obligations that prevail on both sides. Such knowledge is a prelude to action that will remove artifi­ cial barriers of race," they said.

Buddhist Crisis Rests Partially On Shoulders of President SAIGON (NC) Many of Vietnam's best Catholics feel that while the BuddhUlt agitators are wrong, President, Ngo dinh Diem is not entirely right, ac­ cording to Columban Father Patrick O'Connor. Since he and his family are Catholic, any mistakes they make are likely to be used as ammunition against the Catholic religion. This is particularly un­ fair when the mistakes arise not from the application of Catholic principles but from failure to apply them, Fr. O'Connor says. Buddhist leaders are wrong in alleging that they have been suffering. religious persecution. They have been wrong in lead­ ing their followers into public demonstrations in defiance of the law. They have been wrong in thrcntcning a can: ··1 f contemptuous "civil disobedi-

They have been doing it ostensi­ bly to obtain redress of alleged grievances that, even if they were real, would not justify such extreme measures. LesIJ


Catholics, like other Vietnam_ ese citizens, recognize that the President has a duty to defend the state and preserve public order. Many of them fE.'eI, how­ ever, that he and his government should have done it with more tact and less severity. Not only would less severe methods have been mGre effective; they would have been more appropriate in a Catholic statesman. If any man should lean over backwards to avoid giving even an appearance of harshness towards non-Christians, even law-violating non-Christians, it is a Catholic president in a coun­ try like Vietnam. President Ngo dirrh Diem has not been guilty of persecuting Buddhists for their religion. They have no grounds, nor has any foreign journalist. for ac­ cusing 'him on that s<:ore. But he and his government have hit the :auddhists. ex.cessively hard for their politically aimed dem­ onstrations-. The hitting was done by sub­ ordinates, probably without the President's knowledge. But after he' came to know of it, he was slow indeed to do anything to salve the hurt. No member of his entourage was any faster.

ingly evident in the present gov­ ernment of Burma, according te reports reaching here. The government is a military group called the Revolutionary CoWlcil with Gen. Ne Win as president. It came to power by a bloodless coup in March, 1962. A month later it declared that it would "march unswervingly to the goal of socialism." At the same time it declared that it rec­ ognizes the right of everyone freely to profess and practice h~ religion." Threa'en KicJtts Burmese Christian par e n t • feel, however, that their reli­ gious rights and those of their children are threatened by ~ov­ ernment measures in education. Last Mayall shops selling school textbooks were visited by officials and their entire stoCQ of schoel boola were carried away in government trucks to the AVA (pvernment) book store. Henceforth only textbooks issued by" this stm-e may be used in any smoal. It bt clear now that all these books will ha ve a Marxist slant. Alfects Educatien In February of this yeaJl. according to wen - informed. sources, the government decided to oust all foreigners from edu­ cation. The first step will be te bar foreigners from being prin_ cipals of schools. After that th~ will probably be barred frona playing any part in education. Foreigners may no longeZl practice medicine in Burma. The extreme nationalist poli.. cies are linked to the Marxist ones. Later, if the Marxist goal is reached, the nationalist prin_ ciple may suffer.

Ass·erts Students Eager to Seek High ·Ideals

SA~TA FE (NC) The Catholic Church must be­ come embodied in the very culture of Asia to make its

impact felt on that continent, a Benedictine. priest from India said at the Catholic Art Associa­ tion convention here in New Mexico. Father Bede Griffiths, O.S.B., nid the major stumbling block 40 this goal is that the Asian peoples regard the Church as "foreign," primarily because it ia Latin in liturgy, theology and cenon law. Father Griffiths, stationed at an experimental Benedictine monastery in Kuricumala, India, sPoke after receiving the art as­ sociation's gold medal award for his "outstanding contribution to ecumenism in the East!' The British-born Benedictine became a convert to Catholicism in 1931, was ordained a priest in 1940 and served at Benedic­ tine monasteries in England be­ fore being assigned to the mon­ astery in India. Father Griffiths spoke of the ehurch in relation to Asia in general but streSsed the chal­ lenge it faces in India. He said that although the ehurch is· shedding "her colo­ nial trappings" and becoming adapted in social customs 00 modern India, "it still remains unbelievably European." Interior Formation "The churches are still Gothici . . baroque, the altar furnishings, statues and pictures either im. ported or imHated from Euro· pean models in the worst style," he continued. '!But more serious fIlan this is the fact that not only in ext~rnal appearance, but also the interior formation of the Ohurch remains essentially Western and therefore foreign. "This is due to the simple fact that the Church is Latin; Latin in its liturgy (which in a land where the majority is still illit. erate is completely unintelli­ gible), Latin in its theology and Latin in jts system of canon law. This means that the Church re­ mains completely cut off from tbe traditions of Indian culture." He said that in Asia the eburch "has to face a world which belongs in a totally differ­ ent cultural tradition," and this "'will be found to constitute the «reatest challenge to the Church ill the coming centuries."

LONDON (NC)-The Earl of Craven told representa­ tives of half a million Catho­ lic teachers in 50 countrieB that stuqents are "eager to be persuaded that high ideals are worthwhile." "We are missing a great op­ portunity if we fail to recognize this and let them settle for a tarnished code of ethics," he said as he. welcomed the 250 dei­ egates at the fifth triennial- con. gress of the World Union of Catholic Teachers. He was speaking for England's Catholic Teachers' Federation. After pointing out that mod-. ern philosophy "does not face .up to life," he told the teachers: "We can all hope that the spirit of· idleness driving the car

of luxury along the highways

of plenty does not have a· fatal

. accident." ..

The four~day congress, held at the University of London Insti. tute of Education, had four offi­ cial languages: English, French, Germal1 and Spanish. Taking part are delegations from Britain, Canada, France, Holland, Italy, Germany, Argen. tina, Australia, Austria, Bel-· gium, Curacao, Denmark, Spain, Ghana, Greece; India, Ireland, Japan, Lebanon, Luxembourg, M a Ita·, Nigeria, Nyasaland, Peru, the Philippines, Rhodesia, South Africa, Switzerland, Tan­ ganyika, Togo and Trinidad.

Urge Argentina's' New Goverment Tackle Problems

Expect Council Fath'er5 to Study Wortdwide Vocations Shortage The lack of priests and Reli­ gious is so acute in - many parts of the world iliat the Fathers of the Second Vatican Council are almost sure to take u'p the prob­ 'lem of vocations. Why is it, the bishops want to know, that vocations flourish in some places and appear virtually nonexistent in others? The statis. ticlil-analyzing apparatus of to­ day-the Pontifical Office for Religious Vocations installed a UNIVAC computer over a year ago - throws the situation in bold relief. Why are there such differ­ ences, for example, between the number of Catholics in certain countries and the number of priests serving them? In Bel­ gium, for instance, the ratio of Cat.holics per priest is 600 to 1, whIle in Guatemala it is 11,000 to 1. Cite United states In the United States, while the ratio is 820 to 1, that figure is rap,idly changing, for the Cath­ olic population has increased 35.9 per ce~t in the last decade and during the same time the priests have increased only 22.2 per cent. . The Montreal archdiocese, With some 1.3 million Catholics, has 2.180 priests. Madrid, with 2.6 million Satholics, has 2,349 priests. And Manila, with a Catholic population of 2.7 mil­ lon, he'S only 725 priests. The over-all ,picture in the Church is one of vocation short­ age. In Europe the CatllOlic pop­ ulation has been increasing steadily while the number of priests has been decreasing. In Latin Amedca the population increase has been explosive, for in the past five years the Catho­ lics' have doubled percentage­ wise over the number of semi­ narians. Latin America. The few figures available for Africa and Ash>. show the begin­ nings of seroilar phenomena Some regions of Africa have al­ ready attained a condition like that of Latin America' Only in the United States has there been an increase in the number of vocations. The enroll­ . ment in U. S. seminaries tod<:ly totals some 47,000. The rest ot­ the Catholic world accounts for only som-e 50,100 seminarians, SQ the United St-dtes, with less .than 10 per cent of the total Catholic population, accounts for almost 1lal:f the seminary students. Situations Vary Along with considering pres­ ent vocations the Council Fathers are also asking: Where can more vecathms be found? Apart from the theological study Of the matter, they recog~ nize that a great deal can be l88rned from a ~tudy of the so­ cial mBie\,;, the' geographical area, the type of family and the youths' scholastic' formation. Some regions provide more vecations than otherS'. In South AlInerica, for example, four de­ PHtments of Colombia (Anti­ Olluia,Cundinarmarca,Caldas and Bbyaca) account for 68 per cent of'the diocesan vocations and 78' per cent of the religious voca­ tions. These· are rural areas, but in the United States where most cathoUcs are city people, it is jWlt the opposite. Nearly 90 per cent of the vocationll com-e from tile urban areas. Minor Seminaries Another things some Council Fathers want; to discuss is the practiC'ality of minor seminaries. F'-or 400 years, si'nce the Council of Trent ordered the e<:tablish­

ment of a seminary in Every dio­ cese, it has been taken for granted that younger vocations are the more common. The ear­ lier a youth is accepted into a seminary, the traditional theory went, the better would hebe de­ veloped academically, socially, culturally, physically and spir­ itually. But many North European and South American bishops are now challenging these 'lssumptions. The ColOnibian Bishops, for in­ stance, claim that 52 per cent of their seminarians have entered at the age of 17 or later; 28 per cent in their middle teens; and only 20 per cent at the beginning of adolescence. Such evidence must be weighed carefully in planning future ac­ tion, for much depends on the milieu in which the vocations germinate. The matter of perse­ verance in the reHgious vocation also needs consideration. There has been a wide variance in this regard. Seminary drop-out rates range from as little as 10 per cent to over 80 per cent of the candidates. Psychological T('st8 One tool for evaluating the effects of environment on the temperament and personality of a youth is the psychological test. Since World War II more and more dioceses' and religious .in­ stitutes have been attempting like their governmental and mil~ itary counterparts, to subject potential candidates to psycho­ logical tests to determine their temperamental a n demotional fitness for the priestly or reli­ gious life. The assumption is that if youths are psychologically suitable for the priesthood or re­ ligiou~ life they are m ore likely. to persevere. Now the question in the minds of some_ of the bishops and major superiors is this: Should such tests be optional, or compulsory? or shculd they be ignored alto­ gether? Those who have already spoken on the matter l'(li:lommend caution and reserve. They do admit that tbelMt tesUt can and do supply important data about questionahle appli­ cants.

Urge Government Aid for Schools In Australia MELBOURNE (NC) !'he Catholic Bishops of Vie­ toria state have issued a joint statementstrangly fa­ _ring government aid 110 the .te's private schools. The Bishops' in their statement leviewed the stands of Austra­ . ' s poltical parties on the issu~: They criticized the Australian &!lOOr party (now in opposition), ,praised the Democratic Lab~r party, and expressed apprecia­ t'lon for significant contributions ~ the Liberal party-now in a eoalition with the Country party . . the federal government, by 6e Queensland state liberal gov­ ernment, and by the New South Wales state branch of the Coun­ ..,. party. Some 500,00 children-a quar­ k of the country's school pop­ "ation - are being educated in privat~ schools, the Bishops said. Ask Fair Treabnent The central issueiacing these 6ildren, they said, is whether or not federal and state govern­ ments will treat them like other dilldren as regards money spent eo education. The statement was signed by Archbishop Daniel Mannix of Melbourne, Bishop James P. O'Collins of Ballarat, Bishop Patrick F. Lyons of Sale and Bishop Bernard Stewart of Sandhurst. The essence of the Australian 'Labor party's attitude on the is­ Mae of equality is clear, the Bishops said. The first resolution adopted at 4b.e party's recent federal cenfer­ enee at Perth simply stated that :If part of the community could IIOt send its children to state .ebools for conscientious or other I'e&8sons, it had the right to eet tIP its own achonls as long as it made no claim on staie revenues. Naitmd Ril:'ht This is hardly a;n original dis­ ewery, the Bishopssald, Cath­ etics have known this for 80 .,.ears. The right of Catholics to _ up schools they pay lor­ after paying a fun share in the maintenance of state schoollr-is • natural right, they said. Catholic schoo1s were set up by the determination of Catho­ tics, not by any concession of the Australian Labor party or any Gther party, they said. Catholics paid tens of millions Gf dollars to set up their schools, which meet all the standards de­ manded by the state, they said. "There will be no weakening," Chey said. "We will keep paying 'GUt until the principle of equal_ __ is recognized by the state."

Bishop Carretto, Vicar Apos­ tolic of Rajaburi, Thailand, has developed with a fellow priest a _ of machines that can turn .-eless cocoanut husks into a ,marketable commodity. It may mean a turning point in the life of the 14,000 Catholics .in his Wcariate. Be explained that the five M1lchines, which include a husk .-usher, two combing machines, eod two spinning machines, are

extremely important to his mil'J­ sions. The crusher breaks and flattens the tough husks after they are soaked in water for about 12 hours. The first combing machine peels the long fibers which can ge used in making carpets or in the manufacture. of tires. The second combing apparatus re­ moves. the small fibers. These in turn are spun into thread on the first spinning machine and into rope on the second spinner. :Applies Principle The Bishop said that his assist­ ant, Father Peter Jellici, first eooountered the principle be­ hind the process while on a trip to Italy Where he observed power-driven machinery doing the job.

Church's Lo.,e For Workers

CASTELGANDOLFO NC -Pope Paul VI reminded Spanish workers on a pil­ grimage her e that the

Church has a special interest and love for workingmen. The Pope spoke in a special audience io a pilgrimage from Barcelona led by Archbishop Gregorio Modrego y Casaus, Bishop of Barcelona. His first general audience at the Summer villa followed. ''You surely know," he told the Spaniards, "how much inter­ est, how much love the Church reserves for workers. 'Defend Your Rights' "You know how she in these last years has multiplied her teachings to declare and defend your rights, to help you fulfill your duties, to preserve in the working class its religious and moral patrimony, to protect the dignity of the human person whatever his profession, to give physical toil its spiritual value, to dissipate the false ideas spread in a particular manner in the world and above all the false idea that the Church of Christ is not the friend of the work,iog people."

. Ecumenism


The Bishops' Statement The Catholic Church's teaching on race is clear and unmistakable - the Church is color-blind. Every human being is a creature of God and worthy, by the very fact of His existence' and apart from such things as education or culture or social standing, of being treated with dignity and justice and charity. Through the years, priests and prelates have reminded their brothers and sisters in the Faith and those outside the Church that prejudice against the Negro because of his color is morally evil. In the instances when a priest or bishop has not spoken up as loudly on this issue as some would have wished, the answer was not that the Church's teachings was being compromised but that the prudence of the hour called for action rather than words, for the example of charity and justice rather than the outspoken condemnation.. The' wEmkness of men is such that God's teaching must be made as palatable to them as the truth allows. Men must be helped to overcome the prejudices of a century and this is usually better done in a climate of .peace then in a storm of anathemas. But now the racial problem in this country is reaching a peak. Men and women are being asked to stand up and to be counted. And the statement of the Oatholic Bishops of the country on this matter is surely going to be greeted with enthusiasm. There is nothing pew about the views presented by the Bishops. It is Catholic teaching pure and undefiled. Every man is a brother to every other man, a brother to Christ, a child of God. . For a person or a community to refuse that dignity to a man because of the color of his skin is for that in­ dividual and that society to commit an injustice. As the Bishops state: "the heart of the ra<:e question . is moral and religious." It is a metter of justice - each person has rights which he has a duty to claim, which others have a duty to grant. It is also a matter of charity - "Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself." The work of erasing bitterness because of race, of overthrowing barriers and thawing out tensions, is a work that each community and each individual must carry out with a wholehearted commitment. And the most effective basis is the one proposed by the Bishops: Love one another, for this is the law of God. Revere in every man his human dignity, for this is the gift of God.

Two Meetings Two significant events Are taking place this week­ the 24th Annual North American Liturgical Week now going on in Philadelphia, and the Regional Confraternity of Christian Doctrine Congress which begins today in Boston. Some people are still frightened off by the word "liturgy." They think it has to do with externals - with the furnishings of a sanctuary, the length of fringe on a maniple, the objects used in Church. Other confuse liturgy with rubrics - the directions on how Church ceremonies are to be carried out. Liturgy means the public worship that the Church gives to God. Man, individually and collectively, has the duty to turn to His Creator. This is his most important work. Liturgy means the holy people of God uniting with one another and with their priest or bishop and with Christ in turning to their Father and to His. The aim of liturgy is the union of man and God through Christ and in Christ and with Christ. People must know the God with Whom they desire union. They should know the Christ Who alone can bring them to the Father. They should understand the Church, the extension of Christ tn the world. They must be formed in the likeness of Christ and this is the aim of the Con­ fraternity of Christian Doctrine. So the purposes of the two meetings dovetail beauti­

fully. It is to be hoped that those who attend the sessions

of both and follow their proceedings in person or through

reading will be inspired to further the purposes in their

own lives and in their parishes. '

ROBERT W. HOVDA, Catholic University

TODA.Y - The Immaculate lI[eart Cl,f Mary. "Let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace," is the refrain o,f our Entrance Hymn. We uni­ versalizl~ the Gospel's "Behold, thy mother," because Mary sig­ nifies this confidence in a unique way. Her uniqueness does not alter the fact that she if: fully and only human and a of what God can do, does do, and will do, to human nature. TOMORROW-St. PhiUp Ben­ Confessor. What do we val­ ue? Wh,at do we treasure? These are the questions prompted by t<)day's Mass. It is because of our values that good Christians are ridiculed and sometimes perse­ cuted (First Reading). It is because of the intangible nature of our treasure (persons: divine and human) that well-plucked eyebrows and manicured fingers may be lifted. And if our great­ est value is a who rather than a what, the sacramental deeds of this same who are worthy of even more than an annual Litur­ gical Week. They are worthy of the best possible celebration every Sund·ay. il~i,

SATlJRDAY - St. Bartholo­ new, Apostle. He "chose twelve" (Gospel). He chooses everyone who co:nes to Him in love, who responds to Him with faith. The whole Christian community is a priestly people. We are all priests, all made holy by the Lord, a'll ordained to His service (First Reading). But that we might "do this in memory of me," the sacred ministry within 1his ho]y community is also His Hift and His will TWE:LFTH SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST. "Through you r l~oodne;;s," we pray in the open­ ing prayer of today's Mass, "your faithful people are able to offer ~,ou fitting and praiseworthy llervice." The l!'irst Reading, in a differ­ Imt context, makes the same con­ l!ession of our total reliance on IC:;od's gifts. Not only has God :loved 11S and given His Son for 'L1S, but He has given us the very means by which we love Him in :return--the virtues of faith and :oope and, love, and the liturgy, theS()I,~mn public expression and exerche· of ,those virtues in worship. The essence of the liturgy­ the Wc,rd of God proclaimed and ·the sa(:ramental acts of Christ­ is all God's gift. A dazzling gift, like the "spiritual law" which it enshrines and impresses on our hearts. 'But we have our part to play, too. Under the guidance of the Hc,ly Spirit, we who are the Church clothe God's Word and Christ's act with language (oura

or somebody else's) in music and gestures. When we speak of the reform of our public worship, as the Council Fathers do, we refer to these latter things, so that the essence of it (God-given and un­ changeable) may stand out more clearly and teach us more effec­ tively. MONDAY-Mass as on Sun­ day. The "spiritual law" (First Reading) is a new spiritual rela­ tionship we have in Christ toward every other person, a re­ lationship implying and de­ demanding love. That this does mean every other person is the message of the Gospel, for the Samaritan equals the citizen of the state or the member of the group that we despise most. TUESDAY - St. Joseph Cala­ sanctius, Confessor. Weare very conscious of Jesus' sacramental presence under the appearance of bread and wine. Weare not so conscious of His presence in believers, and even in unbe­ lievers. He identifies Himself not only with the Christian com­ munity but with children (Gos­ pel), with our enemies, with the "least" of our brothers. Our un­ consciousness is evident at Mass, where, though we adore the Blessed Sacrament, we are un­ willing to reverence and to take our .part in the congregation, the community.


WEDNESDAY-St. Augustine, Bishop, Doctor. A good teacher is a great grace. No wonder, when it comes to the teachers of the good news of Jesus Christ, the liturgy speaks of the' Lord loving them and clothing them with a "rObe of glory." For it is the Lord who teaches us through them, through such bishops as Augustine, and through our public worship above all, for at Mass ~ is everywhere and always active as our Teacher.

Washington has invited laymen of this archdiocese to submit recommendations on matters to be considered at the second ses­ sion of the Ecumenical Council, which opens in ~ome Sunday, Sept. 29.

Life' of Paul 'VI

. , Jtev. Edwanl J. MiteileD

For Archbishop Montini, the missionary task was to conquer through Christian love those "unhappy ones who gather be. hind Marx," to reassure them that, as Jesus "still loves them strongly, immensely, divinely," so the Church supports "the pro_ found need for a new and worth­ while life that is hidden in their souls." Prinee of Church Pope John, in his first consis­ ..t ory, named the then 61-year old Archbishop as a ''Prince of the Church." It appeared that Montini was as close to Pop~ John as he had been to Pope Pius, and there were indications .that the iilte Pontiff had hopes that Montini would .succeed him on the throne of S1. Peter. In any case, during the first session of the Council, Cardinal Montini was the only cardinal who lived in the papal apartments during the gathering. When, late in the Council, rumors swept through the city that Pope Joan was fatally ill and had only a few months to live, people began to speculate on'his successor. The'name most mentioned was that of Car< Montinni. Number One Following the death of Pope John, Montini's popularity was still high. He' was Number One on most people. list of. the

Says High School Dr~pouts Cause For Concern ' LAFAYETTE (NC) Bishop Maurice Schexnayder of Lafayette, La., has ex­ pressed concern over the in­ ereasing number of youngsters dropping out of high school. He said in a pastoral letter read in all diocesan churches: "I consider it my grave duty to remind the parents to do all that is possible to see that the boys and girls complete at least their high school education. "Likewise both pastors and assistants are urged to speak of this scourge to their flocks from the pulpit, at meetings of men and women, in religious classes, and to the young people individ­ ually whenever the occasion presents itself. "For evident reasons, the ma­ jority of these drop-outs must join the already too vast army of the unemployed. No school and no work mean idleness, with, the result that many become de­ linquents with little hope :fur a happy and useful life."

Voids Religious Articles Tax MOBILE (NC) - The wall 01. separation between church arid state has two sides, including one that protects churches from encroachments by government, a Mobile judge commented here in exempting Alabama churches from use taxes on articles used in religious services. Circuit Court Judge Joseph M. Hocklander ruled in a case in­ volving St. Mary's church here, which protested a state bill of $407.06 for use tax on such arti­ cles as sacramental wines, can­ dles, vessels, missals, prayer cards, sheet music and offering envelopes. Two-Sided Wall HJust as z~lously as the Su­ preme Court of the United States has stricken even forms of prayer in school as a forn'!. of re­ ligious interference with matters of state," noted Judge Hock­ lander, "so also, as I understand the cases, it has stricken attempts by the state to exact a tax on the privilege of religious wor· ship. "The wall of separation, much talked about, has two sides to it. Religion must not be aided by state legislation nor, in turn, may its practice be circumscribed by tax restrictions which would tax the use of articles such as these directly and intimately con­ nected with the worship service itself."

Senate to Rule On Divorces OTTAWA (NC)-The Cana­ dian House of Commons has, eased itself out of the divorce business in Quebec and New­ foundland, only two provinces of Canada which do not have di­ vorce courts. Und~r a bill passed by the Hoilse of Commons and the Sen­ ate in the dying hours of Parlia~, ment before adjourning for two months holiday, the burden of such divorces is passed to the Senate. The bill provides that the Sen­ ate cannot adopt a divorce until the petition has oeen referred to an' officer of the Senate who must hear the evidence and then report to the divorce committee 01 the Senate. " .Rijfht to Appeal " The only future situation when , the House of Commons may have to deal with a qivorce is in case

of an appeal. Either party in a

divorce: or: annulment will have the right to appeal the resolu­ tion within 30 days of its adop­ tion by the Senate. The appeal would be made in the form of a private bill requiring the ap­ proval of both· houses. ' Quebec and Newfoundland liave always refused to accept establishment of a divorce'court. Under Section 91 of the British North America Act of 1867, the basis of Can'adian confederation, the Dominion Parliament' has the sole au'thority in all matters re­ lating to marriage and divorce except such as pertain to the solemnization of matrimony.

WASHINGTON (NC) - The chairman of the National Cap­ tive Nations Committee, Inc.. said here it opposes a nonag­ gression pact with Moscow un­ less the Reds give heavy con­ cessions for freedom. Lev. E. Dobriansky, a George­ town University teacher, com­ mented in a statement on reports that the Kremlin is pressing for negotiations for a nonaggression pact between the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and the Warsaw Pact nations. Dobriansky said preparations should be made to fight a treaty that fails to entail heavy con­ cessions for freedom on the part of Moscow, including free elec­ tions in the captive nations of Central Europe and the consti­ tutional right for secession by the captive non-Russian nations' of the USSR. 'Terrible Gamble' "In point of cold logic," he said, "for us to enter into a pact with a party that in reality is in constant agression against all these captive nations' would mean a shameless acceptance &1 Russian aggression ,and the new Russian empire." Dobriansky said his committee regards the partial nuclear 'test ban treaty as "a terrible gamble with our national security."

Advises: Teenagers "Devote ' Time 'to Worthwhile 'Goals

lhurs., Aug. 22, 1963

Clergymen Make Persona I Visits In Tension Area CHICAGO (NC)-Clergy­ men are making personal

,By .loseph T.McGloin, ,S.J. Pm not sure where the custom of a three-months' vaeation from school began. It may well have been that the

youngsters were needed to help out at home, or on the farm

for that per.iod. Whatever its origins, the custom persists today under the illusion that of trouble." As though "keeping these strong, young dynamos, them busy" would develop their with 100 times the energy of minds and as though "keeping their parents, need three out of trouble" were life's pur­ months' rest' out of every twelve. Their father, if he gets any "va­ cation" at all,' usually just changes occupations for two weeks of every year, and their mother doesn't even get that much of a break. This attitude carries over into almost every field, as teenagers are babied with the offer of mediocre goals, inspid aims, and projects any child could do. School work mustn't be made too hard for them, for instance. You never hear a parent com­ plaining that a child is given too little homework, but occasionally the parents who, dedicate their lives to instructing teachers gripe about the irreparable harm done their child by "too much homework." Childish Responsibilities Religion has to be a watered­ down mixture that will only serve to immUilize them to genuine religion if 'they should beinjeeted with it later. Socially, they'have to be al­ lowed to do pretty much as they please, with 'all the dating they and the neighbOrs' ~ who are always ex pe tt s' on everyone else's kids --'- deem neeessary. To help teenagers to grow ,gracefully, 'they are offered childish responsibilities, given jobs 'around' the'Mu'se which de­ mand no initiative, no thought, in fact, no real responsibility at all. They, are never worrie.d ""ith the challenging idea that ,they , should be voluntarily trying to do something for others instead of workir)g, only: for 'themselves an day ll,mg. " " ';'

. ,Adult ,Hetelliee

Actually, these are all adult 'heresies, and the young at heart want no part of them, unless and until they b~gin to bQg, down in the adult rut of complacency. To get many adult groups moving on a project, you have to make it seem' childishly easy. And perhaps the adult heresy today is that if you 'keep busy enough, you can do no wrong ­ which is precisely why the adult sometimes consider a "youth club" the cure-all for every­ tlting.

-Memben of First Junior- ,Class At Bishop Feehan High School Look Forwa rd to Busy Year

TH,E ,ANCHOR:- ", Thurs., Aug. 22, 1963

Favors Dropping Upper Classes Before Lower

Bishop Feehan High in Attleboro will add, another "first" to its list of firsts when school opens again in September. It will welcome its- first class of juniors, who look forward to a happy and profitable year as top students in an ever-increasing student body. Bishop Feehan High, man activities is a Develop­ staffed by the Religious Sis­ mental Reading course, directed ters of Mercy, having been by Sister Mary Incarnata and founded only since 1961, cannot boast ofa long history, but it can boast of a full, active pro­ gram which is rapidly making history. Two Feehanites who began as freshmen and who will be juniors when the school year opens again are Stephen Nolan and Jean Maigret. Both are en­ thusiastic about the school pro­ gram and eagerly look forward to their junior year. This class bas had the enviable posiJ;ion of. always being on top. Steve, a member of Immacu­ late Conception parish in North Easton, where he has been an altar boy for the past nine years, got his first taste of formal Catholic education when he be­ gan at Feehan two years ago. "I like it," says Steve. "Reli.,. gion provides a greater impetus to the study of secular subjects." Steve is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Stephen Nolan. He has one brother at Feehan and expects that his two other brothers and three sisters will follow the tradition he has begun - a high school education at Feehan. Jean, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Conrad Maigret is a member of St. Joseph's parish in Attleboro. She has been a member of the choir at St. Joseph's for the past three years. Favorite Subjects Both Jean and Steve are out­ standing lttudents scholastically. Favorite subjects for Steve in­ clude geometry and English. He likes geometry because he finds it easy and English because he likes read'ing. His current fa­ vorite book is "To Kill a Mockingbird." Short stories are also favorites with him. Jean leans toward languages, English and Latin being her favorites. She likes to write and feels that a good command of English is essential in any jour­ nalism course. She writes CYO activities' for the local papers. College Bound Both Jean and Steve look for­ ward to college after graduation from Feehan. Steve hopes to go to Stonehill and major in mathe­ matics, which he would like to teach. Jean plans to teach also, but in the field of language or social studies. AmericaQ. history' is a favorite with her. Both students like sports, in and out of school. Jean is fond of bowling, though she refuses to tell 'her score and Steve is a baseball fan with basketball running a close second. . Of school activities they say, "It's hardly conceivable that in the space of one short school week so many clubs, meetings, and activities are able to occur. At Feehan, special attention is given to extra-curricl,llar ac­ tivities, which serve to nourish the regular life of a high school student." Each week, freshmen find themselves engrossed in Music Appreciation, Personality and G row t h, or Developmental Reading. These activities are ar­ ranged in such a way that each lItudent fulfills the requirements of all courses successively during 4lIle academic year. Music AppreciatiOn :Music Appreciatioh, undezo the direction of Sister Mary An­ gelica, R.S.M., serves to whet the cultural taste of those par­ taking in the course.
