Elderly Who Assisted Church Deserve Now To Be Aided

ST. MARY - OF ·THE-WOODS (NC)-No group is as loyal to the Church or has contributed so much to the Church's welfare as the elderly. Nor is any group so poorly served by the a:verage parish. That was the consensus of a panel discussion at a conference An Anchor of the Soul, Sure and Firm-St. Paul on aging being held here recently under the joint sponsorship of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis Fall River, Mass., Thursday, August 22, 1974 and St. Mary-of-the-Woods Col..... 34 PRICE 15c lege. .

Pope Paul Discusses Life and Happiness



"These are the people who built the churches of today, the people who have been so loyal and contributed so much during their lifetimes. They deserve our concern and our care," Father Valero said. "There really are old people living on dog food and cat food because it is cheaper than regular food," the priest said. "This is no television myth." He recommendecl that churches tie into such programs as mealson-wheels. The parish can be a regional drop-off point, with vol-

unteers making home deliveries to the elderly within .the parish boundaries; or parishes can operate their own luncheon programs, he said. In addition, he said, parishes can aid the elderly in applying for food stamps and see that they receive sound dietetic information. Gove'rnment funding is available for senior citizen centers and a variety of social services. Father Valero stated, and the Church can be instrumental in mobilizing the political pressure necessary for getting financing.

Edwards added that the federal government is equally responsible for a failure of leadership and is only now beginning to recognize and accept its share of the responsibility for effective and meaningful leadership. The task, he said, is to make certain those in Congress and the executive branch who must reach the hard decisions, who must enact the laws and allocate the funds, are guided by leaders who understand the issues and are prepared to act. "The people of this country are demanding a new quality of lead路 ership, one in which they can put their trust. And they demand it of those of us who are leaders in the health field no less than of those who occupy the highest offices in the landi," Dr. Edwards said. o

In conjunction with the Cook County coroner, the Chicago health department, and the Visiting Nurse Association, the SIDS center is establishing a team of six nurses to carry out the counseling function. The nurses will make contact with the parents as soon as a SIOS death is reported. A typical SIOS tragedy begins when parents awaken one morning to find their child dead in its crih. Other cases have been reported of infants dying in automobiles while their parents drive down the highway unaware of the tragedy occurring in the back sea,t. Such occurrences often lead to strong guilt feelings, and underscore the need for grief counseling.

VATICAN CITY (NC)-Cardinal Sergio Pignedoli, preSJident of the Vatican's Secretariat for Non-Christians, is visiting Japan for a series of meetings with leaders of Japanese religions.

The patriarch visited Pope Paul VI on Nov. 29, 1973. Since 'his appointment as president of the Secretariat for NonChristians last year, Ca,rdinal Pignedoli has undertaken personal contacts with leaders of various religions. Recent visits h'ave taken the cardinal to meetings with Kting Feisal of Saudi Arabia and to the Islamic states of Sudan and MaIl in the first part of this year.

GraiTt and Money and Charity The drought in the Mid West has resulted in a yield of grain far lower than that originally estimafed. This will mean higher prices for grain and for all those .productsmeat) for example-that depend on grain. At the same time, there is still talk of exporting grain to other countrie's, for profit, of course. And this at a time when there is the spectre of starvation especially in the Sub-Sahara area of Africa where it has not rained for years. There are a few facts to be brought out. It is to be expected that prices will rl"se if the supply is tight and more expensive. It is to be expected that the United States must answer t~e call for" help from those who face starvation. It will ncit be graciously received if profiteers make a killing at the expense of the charity that should go to those in dire need throughout the world. Americans will not grumble too much if they see higher prices and know that a contributory factor was charity to keep others in. the world from hunger and starvation. They will indeed protest if they know that a factor in their paying higher prices was the export of grain for financial profit to a handful. of companies or individuals. . It seems strange that only a few years. ago when the

great wheat deal was inade to Russia there was all sorts of speculation about enough railroad cars and ships to trans~ port that grain. But it seems that all this was accomplished and without too much loss of time. When there is a need of grain to feed hungry people in Africa, there does nQt seem to be quite the same zeal in arranging the deal. For this, someone must answer.

Alcohol Scene Attention is focusing again-and quite properly so-on the use of alcohol ~nd especially among young people. Survey after survey is being issued showing the. use, or abuse, of alcohol and particularly in students of junior and senior high schools. The recent lowering in Massachusetts of the age at which young people can legally buy alcohol beverages has, predictably, .been accomplished by an increase in serious automobile accidents involving those same young adults. Those who talked about the rights of young people and their ~asuring up to their responsibilities simply forgot that "what is" and "what should be" do not necessarily coincide. And any casual student of accident reports knows that speed and liquor are the main ingredients of the vast number of accidents involving fatalities and serious injuries. The drug scene that has been and still i~ with u~ has tended to overshadow the alcohol scene. But both remain for what they are-terrible crutches upon which too many people try to walk to their own destruction. Both are factors introduced into the process of living and maturing that can' only result in warped personalities because they throw young men and women during developing years upon a dependency . that should not be. . It is often almost an unbearable burden for people to grow up and mature. Add to that burden the factor of drugs or alcohol and the problems are multiplied in their number and intensified in their dimensions.

Canon Hadad, who is married and has four children, has been in charge of Jerusalem's Arab congregation of the Anglican Church. His appointment as bishop was made by Archbishop Michael Ramsey of Canterbury, England, after consultation with the local church both on the nominee for the office and on the new structures for the Anglican Church in the Middle East. This reorganization of the str~ctures began when Jerusa· lem's Archbishop George Appleton retired in March. Bishop Robert Stopf<;>rd, former, bishop of London, is the· vicar general for a maximum period of two years.

Archdiocese Seeks Way to Ease Court Decision on T·extbooks ST. LOUIS (NC) - The St. Louis Archdiocesan School Office is seeking a way t.o sof,ten the impact of the July 30 ruling by the Missouri Supreme Court that a two-year-old law under which textbooks were loaned to nonpublic schools is unconstitutional. The 1972 Free Textbook Law allowed state money to be used to buy general, non-religious textbooks to be loaned to pupils regardless of the school they attended. Public school districts had ordered and had possession of most of the books to be loaned during the next school year. School officials in the state interpreted the ruling as an immediate freeze on the booklending program. Jerry Porath, governmental liaison official for the St. Louis Archdiocesan School Office, said the office is petitioning the state Supreme Court for a rehearing "and until they act on that petition their ruling is not final. So, in that respect, the Gourt fight is still going on."

If the court grants a rehearing,

the July 30 decision will be stayed and the program will continue. But if the court sticks to its decision, the matter will be returned to St. Louis County Circuit Judge Orville Richardson, whose 1973' decision to allow lending the textoooks to nonpublic school pupils was overturned by the high court. "It's possible that Judge Richardson, who ruled the law to be constitutional might order the program continued on a temporary basis, while working out some .plan to terminate the program," Porath said. ·In that event, pupils would obtain some or all of the books, at least for the start of school. "We're exhausting all the legal steps," Porath explained. "We don't want parents to commit money to ,buy new books until we see all these steps through. So, for that reason, we are advising the school principals to hold off on ordering replacement books."

Official Says Cuban Embargo Unsuccessful WASHINGTON (NC) - The head of the U.S. Catholic Conference's (USCC) Latin America Division has expressed personal support for a lifting of the economic embargo against Cuba. Father Frederick McGuire said his comments are his personal views and not those of the Latin America Division~ "My own feeling," he said, "is that we have not been successful in our embargo on trade with Cuba, and it is quite evident that many Latin American countries who are not at all sympathetic to Marxism are anxious that the embargo be lifted," he added. In speaking of the plight of political prisoners in Cuban jails, Father McGuire said: "I feel great sympathy for those suffering in Cuba." -

But, before making any public and official statement by the USCC on the prisoner situation, he said, "I believe it is necessary to consult with the bishops who are presently in Cuba, in order that we may act in accordance with their wishes."

There has been considerable pressure on the usee from Cuban exile groups in the United States who are demanding that the Church tackle the prisoner issue.

The issue of an improvement of U.S. relations with Cuba has again cropped up among foreign policymakers and in Congress in this capital as a result of a report by Pat Holt, staff director of Sen. J. William Fulbright's (D.-Ark.) Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Holt visited Cuba from June 29 to July 8 in the first such visit by an American official since 1960. He reportedly obtained reluctant approval of the visit from Secretary of State Henry Kissin·ger for a trip which he had been trying to make since 1960.

Cincinnati's Survey of Black Catholics First in Country CINCINNATI (NC)--The Black Catholic Caucus of the Cincinnati archdiocese has begun a parish census of black Catholics to determine "who we are, where we're coming from and what we need." The survey is thought to be the first of its kind ever conducted in the United States, according 'to Sandra Wi1:Jingham, executive director of the caucus. "We really don't know what black Catholics think," she said, whether they are "cradle Catholics" or converts, whether they attend church regulslrly or infrequently, whether they identify closely or do not with a parish. Sponsored by the parish development committee of the Black Catholic Caucus, the first phase of the survey will include canvassing parishes with predominantly black memberships. Succeeding steps to be taken to locate the "invisible black Catholics," said Ms. Willingham, will likely include a door-to-door survey and pursuing "grapevine leads." The survey was designed by Professor Harry Murphy, head of the marketing department at the University of Dayton. Assisting him were Ms. Willingham and Sister of Charity Helen Margaret, a member of the Dayton Urban Apostolate, In addition to providing basic census infol'1lllation about black CathoHcs in the archdiocese (age,

occupation, marital status, level of education, amount of formal religious training), the survey is designed to tell how actively involved in the Church blacks arc and where they stand on many issues. It is expected to reveal their views on Catholic doctrine and practices - how important the sacraments are, the usual forms of prayer in the home and how they get church information and news, as well as the need for interfaith services, adult religious. education and more antiabortion activities.

While not presently in the meat cutting business, Mr. Medeiros started working in



that the meat is cut so you'll get the most for your money. Consider 10 one-pound packages of sandwich steaks instead of two five-pound roasts. Always look at the ceiling in a meat market, or at the meat counter, and be sure that they are not using a pink light over the meat counter to give the meat a healthy look that it doesn't have. ,Cook a turkey by starting it with the breast down, flipping it over a few times during the cooking process, and basting it with a very thin layer of prepared .mustard. Mr. Medeiros promises that the light film of mustard gives a beautiful brown skin. ' To make a tangy marinade for chops or even a roast, mix equal parts of water and vinegar, add a small amount of red dried crushed pepper and some paprika for color. Stir all the ingredients together and marinate your meat in this liquid overnight. Dennis Medeiros has such a vast knowledge of meat and how to buy and treat it that this column can offer just a skimming of that knowledge. Perhaps some day this knowledgeable young man will offer a course ·on the subject and share his expertise with the res,t of us who want our meat dollar to stretch as far as it can and' with the best results.

"My dream is to own a restaurant with a glassed-in kitchen so that the customers can not only watch their steaks being cooked ,but also watch them being cut," said ,this delightful man who talks of cooking and eating with a rare gusto. Seven Cuts In discussing different cuts of steak Mr. Medeiros noted that there are really only seven: sirloin, T ~bone, porterhouse, top round, bottom round, eye of the round and chuck. , He said that the more a woman (or man) knows a'liout meat the more likely she is to buy wisely. For example, he stated that very often people rush to a meat sale offering New York Sirloin (bone-in type) for 99c a pound while boneless sirloin may be selling for $1.49 and go unwanted, even though in reality the latter is the better value. ",Beware of sales," added this experienced meat man, who noted that in many cases sale items 'are not moving and therefore not as fresh as they should be. A customer may buy such items in quantity, freeze them and then wonder why, when defrosted, they don't taste as fresh al) as they should. 2 Tablespoons lemon juke More Tips Coconut Crust .

.Pro-Life Seeks New Tax Exempt Status ST. PAUL (NC) - Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life (MCCL), a pro-life and anti-abortion group, has announced it will seek a new tax-exempt classification following formal notice by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) that its present tax-exempt status is being revoked. Joseph, Lampe, executive director of the MCCL, said that before the IRIS made its ruling the MeCL had written to the government agency and voluntarily gave up its tax-exempt status which had heen under challenge for more than ·two years. In its request to the IRS, the pro-life group asked to switch from its former 501c-3 to a 501c-4 classification.Under both classifications, MCCL would be exempt from federal taxation, but under the new rating would lose the right to receive tax-deductible contributions from taxpayers. Lampe said it 'has heen told by the IRS that it appears to meet the criteria for the new designation and 'f'may qualify for (the) exemption ... which is applicable to civic leagues or organizations not organized for' profit but operated exclusively for the promotion of social welfare."

and editorials in the Catholic press discussi,ng the moral pros and cons, speculations on where such experimentation leads. But as a mother I'm more interested in the women themselves and their motives for seeking pregnancy in this manner. Little is known of them because their doctor took pains to preserve their anonymity. What intrigues me is the human factors which led up to such a decision. I'm guessing that the couples involved deeply wanted to have their own child. This, in itself, is not extraordinary. Many couples want children. But few make a positive, intelIedual decision to conceive their child at a particular time. Under normal circumstances, at the moment of conception, thoughts of a future child are rather nebulous. Out of Love Those women had to undergo experimental surgery to conceive. No one opts for surgery lightly. UsualIy it is fear of death or fear of greater illness that forces a decision to submit to surgery. These women did not accept surgery out of fear. Since they shunned publicity it would seem they didn't do it to earn notoriety. So my guess is each must have had tremendous love for her husband to go through with it in order to bear his child. If so, the decision to have a child was a positive, loving act. But it must have carried its own unique fears. Would· the child be normal? That 'was unknown, since the experiment had never before been successful. What risk was there of the wife dying? AcademkalIy, it may

worry. What about public opinion of them? Would they be recognized as courageous pioneers, or criticized for manipulating human nature? ' And the greatest question, did they have any moral doubts that they were interfering when God intended them not to have a child? Or were they His instruments· in helping man to learn more about human reproduction? It seems to me the courage they displayed' is commendable, and to have maintained that courage through nine months preg. nancy is extraordinary! Most pregnant women worry if their child will be born normal. But objectively there are statistics of millions of normal births to relatively few abnormal ones. Daring Unknown But what of these women? They had no history to rely on. They had no past statistics. They were moving into an unknown ... and taking a child with them. I have the greatest admiration of them. They have made a dramatic, courageous contribution to the fund of knowledge' of reproduction. But· greater· than that,' they have' made an impoitant contribution to parel1thood. Few if any careers have been under as much fire lately as marriage and parenthood. As I see it, these couples, by their involvement in these experiments, have displayed the posi~ive, courageous, loving aspect of marriage and parent· hood They sincerely wanted children to a point of using extraordinary, unproved methods to accomplish t!1eir goal, Their love for those children and their own personal courage have got to be an excellent atmosphere in which to raise thell').

Nuns ·DiscussEmerging -Role of Black Women ATLANTA (NC)-The National ,Black Sisters Conference (NBSC), a coaiJition of black nuns, convened here to discuss , the emerging role, of black women in the Catholic Church and the problems encountered by poor blacks in the United States. Dominican Sister Mary Shawn Copeland, executive director of the NBSC stressed the attempts at "self-determination for black

Catholics and, the organization's efforts to help educalte the black nun about the issue - of being black and Catholic. "Over-all," she said, "Relf-' gious women are protected from the reality of women who are in oppressive situations and the amount of ~ emotional and psychic pressure they undergo." The conference began in August, 1968, with a membership of 164 black Sisters.

Concentrating on the uniqueness of being black, Catholic and American, the NBSC has helped promote black vocations to the Religious life and urged the redistribution of black Sisters communities to black schools and other Church institutions. Dr. Mazetta Klanigan, a research analyst working on prison reform, told the NBSC of the "explosive situation" in U. S._ prisons.

Rhodesicln 'Bishop Urge Equality SALISBURY (NC) -- Rhodesia's Catholic bishops have urged that everyone in the country "be equal before the law, find equal admittance to economie, cultural and social life, and benefit from a fair sharing of the nation's riches." • The bishops~ appeal against racial discrimination was issued shortly before Rhodesia's elections in which the ruling Rhodesia Front, dedicated to maintain-

ing the dominance of Rhodesia's 271,000 whites over its six million blacks, won all 50 seats reserved for whites in parliament. Tt-.-is was the Rhodesia Front's third successive Clean sweep· since 1962. "Power, responsibility and decision.making cannot be the monopoly of one group, or race or segment of the people," the bishops said. Blacks now have only 16 seats



in parliament. About 7,000 blacks are deemed qualified to vote while about 80,000 whites have the vote. Disagreement with the British-government over granting blacks a greater voice in the government of the country led Rhodesia to declare its independence .from Great Britain in 19€i5 and led Britain then to impose trade sanctions on Rhodesia.

Czech Communists War on Religion ROME (NC) Communist professors and state officials in Czechoslovakia have been waging a 'persistent campaign against religion despite constitutional guarantees of freedom of thought and religious choice. This is the central point of Italian Jesuit Father Giuseppe Rulli, writing in the Rome Jesuit review in Civilta Cattolica. In a long analytical article, Father Rulli examines the writings of several eminent Marxist professors attacking religion and the Roman Catholic Church in particular over the past several years. Despite the Czechoslovak government's claims that it is tolerant of religion, Father Rulli stressed that over the past few years a consistent campaign has been mounted against religious freedom.

Taking part in the synod. will be 144 delegates named by bishops' conferences around the world, representatives of the Cat:holic Eastern rites, delegates from male Religious orders, top officials of the major offices of the Roman Curia, the Church's central administrative offices, and some persons selected by ·Pope Pa.ul VI himself. The subject of the synod will ,be evangelizations, the spreading of the Gospel message in today's world. This will be the fourth synod since t'he close of the Second Vatican Council. The purpose of a synod of bishops is to present the Pope and the Church's cen· tral administration' with the thoughts, feeNng and hopes of local Ghurches around the world. Although a synod has no legislative authority, unless the Pope 'personally and directly de1egates such authority to it when it is in session, its views and final resolut~ons are a matter of ,record and taken into consideration by .the Ohurch's off.ices for future policy.'

State Position on Abortion HARTFORD (NC) - The six Catholic bishops of Connecticut issued a joint statement here reminding the state's Catholics of their legal .rights and moral duties regarding abortion. The 16-page pamphlet, "Your Conscience and Abortion,," cited freedom of conscience laws in Connecticut that allow doctors and other medical personnel to refuse to particpate in abortions without fear of discrimination because of their actions.

Named Auxiliary VATICAN CITY (NC)-Pope Paul has named Father Louisde Gonzague Langevin, a memo bel" of the White Fathers, auxilary bishop of Saint-Hyacinthe, Canada. Bishop-elect Langevin was a missionary in Africa before returning to Canada to become provincia'! superior of the Missionaries of Africa, commonly known as the White Fathers.

Moral Code I never ... believed there was one code of morality for public man and another for a private -Thomas Jefferson man.

The 'bishops summarized the U.S. Supreme Court decisions of January 1973 that prohibited states from outlawing abortions in the first six months of pregnancy, . but said the moral law forbids abortion at any stage of pregnancy. T.hey pointed out that the Code of Canon Law, the law of the Church, "states that all those who knowingly and willfully bring about abortion, including the mother, are automaticaHy excommunicated." The bishops outlined various possible degrees of cooperation in abortion procedures and gave guidelines to help determine the moraI imp.lications for individual health care personnel who might be directly or indirectly involved in abortion-related activities because of their work. Signing the pamphlet were Archbishop John F. Whealon of HarMord, Bishops Walter Curtis of Bridgeport and Vincent Hines of Norwich, Auxiliary Bishops Joseph Donnelly and John Hackett, both of Hartford, and. reo tired Archbishop Henry O'Brien of Hartford.


State Obscenity Law 'Salvaged' TRENTON (NC) - The New Jersey Supreme Court has "salvaged" the state's 1971 obscenity law by adding an interpretation tliat it said would make the statute consistent with a 1973 United States Supreme Court ruling. The court, in a 6-0 decision, conceded that New Jersey's existing law does not meet the necessary constitutional requirements and fails to describe adequately what types of literature and movies are obscene.

DEPARTURE CEREMONY: Rev. Francis D. Lavich, SS.CC., right, receives mission cross signifying his departure to J,apanese missions of Sacred Hearts Fathers from Rev. Fintan D.

Go,vernment Newspapers Takeover Pr.)mpts Peruvian Bishops' Concern LIMA (NC) - The Peruvian Bishops' Conference has expressed concern that the good effeots of the government's appropriation of six Lima dailies and of their eventual tr·ansfer to workers' and peasants' organizations "may be destroyed by small powerful minorities which frequently control these organ-

Some bishops expressed criticism "in a cordial and open dialogue" with government officials, Bishop Metzinger's communique said. The military government officials clarified some points and agreed to consider suggestions presented by !the bishops, it added.

But rather than nullify the law, the court said it would fill the gap by interpreting the statute to be in line with the ] 973 U. S. Supreme Court guidelines until such time as the legislature can amend the law. To justify this decision, Justice Nathan L. Jacobs, writing the court's unanimous decision, cited past precedents in which the state's highest court has narrowly construed a statute under the assumption that it was foHowing the wishes and goals of the legis· lature. New Jersey's law, overturned by a three-judge federal court panel in 1972, simply defines obsenity as "that which to the average person, applying contem· porary community standards. when considered as a whole, has as its dominant theme or purpose an appeal to the prurient interest." Pending further legislative action and for the purpose of clarifying the' New Jersey statute, Justice Jacobs said the courts in the state should now follow the definition used by the U. S. Supreme Court in the 1973 case of MHier vs. California.


In a communique issued with the bishops' statement, Bishop Luciano Metzinger, secretary general of the Peruvian Bishops Conference denied that the bishops have taken any official position on the government's decision to expropriate the six priva,tely owned Lima dailies July 27. Gen. Rudecindo Zavaleta, the head of the government's social action agency, had been quoted here as sayin'g that the bishops of Peru support the government's expropriation of the newspapers. This support, General Zavalefa said, had been expressed during a meeting of the bishops with three high-ranking government officials. Bishop Metzinger's communi· que said that the bishops' conferenee invited the three government officials to the meeting in view of "the grave concern expressed by some of its members in rela,tion to some aspects' of the present revolutionary process." The Peruvian military government, which came to power in a coup in 1968, has pushed ahead with an agrarian reform program and has expropriated sever,al American corporat~. in· vestments here since then. Government officials have defined their program as a revolution which is "neither Marxist nor capitalist."

'Scores Report Ty~ng Alcoholism to Catholics GARDEN CITY (NC)-Alcoholism "has a lot more to do with biochemistry than· with 'Catholicism," according to a priest who is involved with the problem. Benedictine Father Peter Sweisgood, assistant executive director of the Long Island Council on Alcoholism here, said he disagrees with a recent rcport by a' task force of the U. S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare which indicated that Catholics 'are more likely to be alcoholics than Protestants or Jews. The report, issued in Washington, D. C. said 'that: -There are relatively high proportions of drinkers among Roman Catholics; -Liberal Protestants drink Hke Catholics but they have fewer

heavy drinkers; -Conservative Protestants have the largest percentage of abo stainers and the lowest proportion of heavy drinkers; Jews have the lowest propor· tion of abstainers and a very low proportion of heavy drinkers. The report also said that the incidence of alcoholism is lower among those who attend church frequently whatever their denomination. No. Connection Father. Sweisgood said that the experience of the Long Island Council on Alcoholism simply does not bear out those findings. , "We have not found the connection between alcoholism and religion that this report would imply," he said. Father Sweisgood said that

there has been a study in Europe of the. amount of the enzyme alcohol dehydrogenase which occurs in people of different ethnic groups. (The enzyme performs a func· tion whereby the body can even·tually convert alcohol to carbon dioxide and water. GeneraHy, a higher level of the enzyme means a lower effect of alcohol.) "The people around the Mediterranean have great numbers of this enzyme," he said, but as the researchers went north through Europe into Scandinavia and the British Isles, the amounts of alcohol dehydrogenase grew less and less. Alcoholism in Europe follows exactly the same geographic pattern," he said. "Of course, the ,biochemical factor is only one factor in alcoholism."

Asks Uniformity In Observance Of Easter

·Counselors at R1eginaPacis Summer Camp Are Fa~ll River Students

NEW YORK (NC)-The traditional practice by different Christian churches of celebrating Easter on different dates may be ended in the "near future," accord'ing to Metropolitan Chrys'ostomos, a leading Orthodox theologian of the Holy Synod of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople.

By'PAT McGOWAN. "Ole!", Spanish for "Well done!", would seem an appropri. ate verdict on the summer camp' program of Regina Pacis Center, New Bedford. Concluding tomor· row on the beautiful grounds of St. James Convent, Tiverton, the two-week session has plucked 80 lively kids from hot city streets and deposited them on the lawns and private beach of a former Sakonnet River estate for a full program of recreation. Direoted by Rev. James E. Murphy, also leader of the Spanish apostolate in Taunton and Attleboro, and Sister Carmen Joseph, S.U.S.C. of the New Bed· ford center, the camp has accommodated a shifting roster of 20 hoys for overnight stays, plus 60 boys 'and girls for day sessions. Helping to run the program, including everything from lots of swimming to arts and crafts, dance, drama, singing and athletics, are a dozen or so Fall River girls, mostly sophomores at Sacred Hearts Academy. All close friends, the girls, plus assorted boy friends, have a reputation for lending their enthusiasm and assistance to various causes. They're gratefully remembered by members of one Fall River organiza'tion for turn· ing up last spring at an otherwise poorly attended penny sale and rescuing it from the doldrums not only by their financial support but by their infectious excitement and good spirits. And recently they spontane· ously took up a collection for a gift to a young Birthright mother whose progress they'd been watching with keen interest. Their contribution to the Regina Pacis camp was acknowledged last Thursday at an out· door Mass f.or the feast of the Assumption when at the Prayer of the Faithful Sister Carmen

Metropolitan Chrysostomos made his remarks during a short • visit to this country recently. The Council of Nicea ordered in the year 325 that the' Festival of the Resurrection be celebrated on the first Sunday following the first full moon after the vernal equinox but always after the Passover. Eventually, the Western churches dropped thl~ requirement that Easter be celebrated after Passover while the Eastern churches reta'ined the requirement thus causing the observance to be held as fair apart as five weeks or simultaneously. Favor Fixed Date Metropolitan Chl'ysostomos said he expected that the subject would . be discussed during the next meeting of the Pan-Orthodox Council, scheduled to begin on Sept. 16 in Salonska, Greece. <»

Most of the world's Protestant churches favor a fi:lq!d date. The Vatican has indicated that it is favorably disposed to setting a fixed date in conjuTlction with other churches "end secular . bodies. The most commonly suggested fixed date for celebrating Easter is the Sunday following the second Saturday in April. Metropolitan Chrysostomos said that the Constantinople pa· triarchate was aware of the desire for a fixed date for Easter and hoped for sol·id results from the deliberations in Salonika.

Joseph gave special thanks for "the gir,ls from Fall River who have given their precious time to us." Look at Me! Less formally, it's acknowledged daily by to~s begging their favorites among the girls to "look at me! watch me swim! see' how I make this!" One little boy went further, solemnly promising marriage to his chosen counselor. "How do you say, 'We'll have to wait till you're older' in Spanish?" she queried. The day campers are brought from New Bedford via bus, said Sister Carmen Joseph, adding that its cost ate up most of the money she had raised for the project at ,a winter bazaar. A small add~tional allocation came from the dioce9an Campaign for Human Development, she hoted, but she ruefully admitted she had underestimated teenage appetites in planning for the overnight campers. "On ,an average night the boys have three ears of corn apiece as a pre-dinner snack, just to hold :them until they and Father Murphy get tpeir meal ready. Then they have an enormous di::mer-and an hour later they're hungry again!" The Holy Un'ion Sister said that some of the d·ay campers bring a lunch, but some depend on her supply of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and. "One boy had six sandwiches and seven glasses of milk!" she reo counted. Father Murphy is in charge of the overnight program, housing his 'boys in three tents equi,pped with doubledecker bunks. "I got them mostly with green stamps," he said, "and put in the rest of the money for them myself." Before he took the Regina P,:tcis hoys to St. James Convent he had broken in his equipment ..
