Neglect of White Working Class Threatens Disaster

WASHINGTON (NC) - ' A warning that "continued neglect of the white ethnic working class is bo\md to bring disastrous results" marked publication of the 1970 Labor Day statement by the U.S. Catholic Conference's An Anchor of the Soul, Sure ,and Firm - ST.

Yet, the statement continued, "it is difficult to rationalize neglect of these citizens, given their number and their strategic location in our urban areas ... they are the backbone of' our labor force in most of our industrial cities, mining towns and manufacturing centers."

But 104 Catholic education offidals were told at a five-day workshop here the direction of the future is "total diocesan planning" ,-an organizational catch-all which ideally' includes centrally managed Confraternity of Christian Doctrine and adult education programs, as well as Catholic schools. - Attending the Georgetown University workshop-eo-directed by Father Raymond Lucker, director of the U.S. Catholic Conference Education Department, and Father C.

And their real salary is declining while prices are rising. Moreover, the statement noted that members of the white ethnic groups have been barred by mutual suspicion and fear from allying with their nonwhite but problem-sharing neighbors. This fear' and hostility, the statement added, has led to open conflict between the races and to repeated charges of "racism," leveled at members of white ethnic groups in racially mixed cities. The Labor Day statement rejected "the widespread accusation that these people are the primary exponents of racism in our society, although we do not deny that racism exists in their ranks." Because business and professional leaders no longer live in the cities, the statement added, "it is obvious . . .that if there is to be a resolution of the racial crisis which currently grips our society, a critical role will be played by white ethnic working class communities." In an effort to prevent "demagogues of hate" from filling the leadership vacuum among the white working class, the statement suggested: A major effort to sensitize American institutions to the Turn to Page Six

Catholic Women' Request Study: Of Equal R~ghts Legislation WASHINGTON (NC) To "keep abreast of the future," the National Council of Catholic Women recently asked the Catholic University of America here to undertake two in-depth studies about women's roles anti another about parish life. Regarding females, resean:hers would investigate the implications of the proposed equal rights amendment, passed by the House in early August and currently promoted by many· feminist groups throughout the nation. A companion· study would' determine "participation of women in the church." Miss Margaret' Mealey, 'the council's executive director· at the United States Catholic Conference, .explained' that while groups such as Women's Liberation urge passage of the amendment, the council, "prefers to study its possible effects upon society rather than just jumping on the bandwagon."

The chief justice, talking to the lawyers, called for more judges and better managed courts and more prosecutors and defense attorneys to provide swifter and surer justice, and . also an improvement in the penal system.· Almost. at once t.here were contentions that the ,police and courts deal only with the symptoms of crime; that prisons should rehabilitate rather than punish; and that, first of all perhaps, city slums should be recognized as breeding places of crime and be cleaned up. Touchy Situation The Nixon administration would like tq make Washington a model ,for the country in the 'control of crime. To this end, the "city has a newly' enacted crime "law, the first phase of which goes into effect on Jan. 1. Meanwhile, there have been 'rumors ,that the city's Mayor Walter E. Washington is on the way out, supposedly becaus,e the White House feels he is soft on crime. But five days after the FBI report was published, Mayor Washington took part in a White . House news briefing at which the President's press secretary, Ron Ziegler, said Mayor Wash-_ ington "doesn't plan to leave his post as mayor ... Nor does the White House wish him to do-so." This extraordinary procedure indicates as well a's anything the touchiness' of the sit~ation.

Asks 'Equal Time' For Peace Sermon PHILADELPHIA (NC) - Fundamentalist preacher Rev. Carl McIntire, head of the International Council ,of Christian Churches, wants equal time from the Germantown church to tell worshippers about his hopes for a U. S. military victory in Vietnam. McIntire claims he is entitled to preach for a few minutes at the First United Methodist Church of Germantown because Father Daniel Berrigan,. S.J., at that time a fugitive from justice, preached an antiwar sermon there Aug. 3. "We are challenging directly throughout the nation the peace stance taken by Father Berrigan, the Philadelphia Peace Committee and the Clergy and Laymen Concerned about Vietnam," Mc.Intire wrote to church spokesman Dr. John G. Siegfried. ' "In view of the opportunity given Father, Berrigan in your pulpit, I request the opportunity to do the same thing which he has, but present the diametrically opposite view."

DES MOINES (NC)-The faillire of Congress tv include farm workers in recently· enacted unemployment compensation amendments drew protest here from the Nationul Catholic Rural Life Conferenl~l·. A statement issued by Msgr.

Edward O'Rourke, executive director, said the conference rejects "arguments that the time is not right for extending these benefits to farm workers." State unemployment compensation programs in California alld Hawaii " have show that such coverage is neither impossible to administer nor more costly than the coverage of other types of seasonal labor," the statement sakI. While applaUding "the significant improvement this legislation provides for industrial workers," the statement said including farm workers in the benefits is a matter of justice.

Worldly Values Cannot ,Replace God, Church CASTELGANDOLFO (NC) God, Christ and the Church cannot be replaced by worldly values just because man finds it more "comfortable" to do so, Pope Paul' VI told a\ general audience at his Summer residence here. "God, Christ and the Church cannot be replaced with impunity," the Pope said. There is a temptation, he said, for man to say "we can do without God and replace Him with other values." This means forsaking faith in God and in religious practice, the Pope said. This "is not radical or rational atheism," it is "an attempt to found life on bases other than traditional religious ones," he said. "How difficult, they say, this problem of God is. How easy it is to evade its demands whether speCUlative or practical.' How comfortable," the Pope said. "Temporal cares oecupy the place that ~hould be reserved in the soul for the rights and duties of religion * * * The lack of rest and prayer on feast days shows how strong and overpowering this temptation is," The Pope said there is another forlll of replacing God with worldly values that has become fashionable. This forlll, he said, does not repudiate the benefits of religion itself, but "severs them froin their roots, that is, from relationship with the divine world," he said. In order to make Christianity welcome to the secularized mentality, the Pope said, Christ is presented in "purely human terms," that is as "a great figure," but as a man. In this kind of presentation "beautiful and profound things are said," the Pope declared. "They are often impressive pages, but are like roses cut off from their true root and reduced to merely human measure."

Editor Requests Journalism School COIMBRA (NC)-A national school of journalism to prepare persons for work in the Catholic press was prop'osed by an editor to the priests' council. of the Coimbra diocese here in Portugal. Father Urbano Duarte, editor of the diocesan newspaper, Correio de Coimbra, said that such a school is needed because of the new concept of the Catholic newspaper as a service not only to the church but to the community.

Sue State Say New Jersey Conducts Racially S~gregated School System NEWARK (NC) - New Jersey was ordered by a U. S. district court judge here to show cause why it should not be enjoined from conducting a racially segregated school system. Acting in a suit filed on behalf ,of two black children, Judge Reynier J. Wortendyke issued the order ag'ainst the state attorney general's office; the commissioner of education and the board of education. The suit, filed on behalf of Vivien Spencer, 8, of Newark and Geraldine Chavez, 11, of Jersey' City, claims predominantly black schools' exist as a result from housing segregation in urban areas. The suit was filed by Harold J. Ruvoldt, Jersey City attorney, who represents Jersey City in another suit charging the governor, the legislature, the. state treasurer and state education officials with failure to fulfill the constitutional obligation of providing an efficient public school system for all of the state's children. The city of Paterson has joined in that suit, which is before the state Superi'or Court.' In the federal court case, state officials have been ordered to show cause why they should not be compelled to give the court a plan for integrating all school districts and another plan to provide compensatory education on an interim' basis in all districts where minorities predominate. Ruvoldt's complaint claims the students are being denied equal rights guaranteed by the 14th amendment of the U. S. Constitution because the state's school districting law perpetuates segregation.

The suit charges more than half of, the state's school-age black children attend schools where the percentage ·of white students is under five per cent.

The fact that Portuguese were emigrating in large number·s from this country to earn a living was regarded as a damaging reflection on social and economic conditions in Portugal and the ruling Salazar government.

Teaches High Schoof Subjects To Ad Agency Employees

NEW YORK .(NC)-There's a nun holding down a, $IO,OOO-ayear job on Madison Avenue now, but she isn't earning it by mapping out advertising strategy. Instead, 33-year-old Sister Mary Elizabeth Fitzgerald, is . telling employes at one of the country's top advertising agencies about job opportunities and teaching the .subjects ~hey need to know to pass the' state's high schoC?1 equivale'ncy test. Her salary is turned over to her religious community, the Congregation of Notre Dame.. "Most of the' people here just call .me Mary Eliza~eth," she said in a conference room at Doyle, pane Bernback. There, she teaches a class of nearly a dozen black and Puerto Rican students, ranging in age from 19 to 43, the five basics-math, science, social studies, grammar and lit~rature-that they need to earn a high school diploma. Her students go to school from 9:30 A.M. until 1 P.M. From 2 to 5:30 P.M. they work in various departments at the ad agency and are paid $90 a week. The project i.s a 'joint government-business program in which. the hard-core unemployed are given a chance to continue schooling while working. Private industry and government split the tab. The program is part of the National AlIiance of Businessmen, an attempt by the private sector to help solve poverty . problems. Sister Mary Elizabzeth is well

qualified for the work. A native of Waterbury, Conn., she attended Fordham University, received her master's degree at Columbia University, taught in Catholic schools in Providence, Stamford, Conn., and in the Bronx in New Yorl< City. For the past four years she· was principal of' St. J.e~n's High ~chool in Manhattari. "I had asked to do work with high school dropouts," she said of her arrival" on Madison Avenue. "Our rule as Christians," she explained, "is to be aware of the needs of society and if at all possible to try to meet them. Do we need changes in the schooling of the Religious? Definitely, yes. "What I'm duing nuw is very interesting. I need a different approach to help the people I'm meeting now who are radically' different from the people I'm accustomed to meeting in our schools. We have to be flexible enough to adapt to that," she added.

Cardinal Shehan Scores f'amily Planning, Bill BALTIMORE (NC) - Cardinal Lawrence Shehan of' Baltimore has'criticize,d a U, S. S~nate approved bill which would provide a $1 billion appropl'iatiun over the next fiv~ yeurs for expanding, improving and better coordinating family planning. The cardinal said he opposes the measure "us social legislation morally objectionable, aimed ut the building of the kind of a society Christians must reject." The bill (S 2108) passed the Senate by voice vote without dissent and was forwarded to the House of Representatives. The cardinal attacked the bill in a page one statement published in the Aug. 21 iss'ue of The Catlh olic Review, Baltimore archdiOcese newspaper. The cardinal's statement said: 'Contraceptive Mentality' "I have read the ,bill carefully. While 1 do not question certain of its features or the good intentions of some who sponsored and voted for it, I have strong moral, religious, and social objections to the bill as a whole. "My objections are based on the fact that I see in it a huge and costly effort on the part of some of those agencies and departments with whom the bill originated, to entrench this country still more deeply and irreversibly in a contraceptive mentality and way of life which I consider morally wrong and socially harmful. "Some time ago, in an, article that appeared in Theological Studies, Father Richard McCormick, S.J., the distinguished moral theologian, said: 'We live in a contraceptive world' where the pill (etc.) has assumed the character of a human panacea.' 'Attitudinal Package' " 'Contraception,' he adds, 'cannot be viewed in isolation from basic attitudes toward life and sexuality. There is mounting evidence that in contemporary culture, contraception is part and parcel of an attitudinal package that includes sterilization (even coerced), abortion, artificial insemination, and ultimately euthanasia.' "These words were written almost two years ago. Since then the evidence has mounted still higher that contraception, which is the heart of all secular planning movements, is indeed part· and parcel of that whole attitudinal package. "Within these two years we have seen the family planners sweep from victory on the contraceptive front to full-scale movement for abortion on demand. We have even seen the shadow of euthanasia In the distance-perhaps not the far distance."

Approve' Abortion, Oppose School Aid> GRAND RAPIDS (NC) - The Michigan Democratic Party convention here approved platform planks which favor relaxed abortion laws and oppose state aid to non public schools. The convention approved other platform planks which call for an immediate cease fire in the Vietnam w~r, plus withdrawal of all U.

VATICAN CITY (NC) - The Vatican has. created a special "drug ce.nh'l·" and obst!l'vt:rs beli{>Vt' Pope Paul VI may be preparing a majur statt'lhenl on the abuse of drugs. Pope Paul is keeping hilll!;df well informed on the use and abuse of drugs, a high Vatican source disc.losed. A special desk in the Vatican secretariat of state has been created to compile documentation on the worldwide drug problem. Although Pope Paul has briefly alluded to drugs in recent speeches, he has not devoted an entire talk to the issue-as he has, for example, on the spread of pornography and sexual perversions. It is not c~l'tain that the Pope is preparing a major statement on drugs, but his intense study of the problem points to that possibility. At least, no one in the Vatican is discounting the emergence of some major statement. One Vatican observer told NC News: • "It seems that Pope Paul has long been aware of the growing problem. He is thought to have spoken to President Johnson ubout drug use in the United States when the President called at the Vatican. When President Nixon visited Pope Paul in the Vatican, the drug problem was reportedly on the agenda."

Anglkans Training Auxiliary Priests PRETORIA (NC) - Thirteen persons, seven of them Africans, are being trained to serve as Anglican auxiliary priests here in Africa. The priests will serve on a part-time basis, mainly on weekends. A senior priest of the diocese tutors each candidate according to. a common syllabus during a thfee-year period. The men meet four times a year together for a retreat. Four auxiliary priests are already working in the Anglican diocese of Pretoria. Some of them are trained for special urban work, but others perform the ordinary duties of a parish priest.

Religious Traditions TAIPEI (NC)-To understand mentality of the modern Chinese and to make the Gospel rdevant to them, non-Christian Chinese religious traditions must be studied, says Archbishop Stanislaus Lo Kuang of Taipei who told 300 participants at the pastoral workshop for priests· and Sisters on Taiwan that they must look at the mentality of the modern Chinese and their religious faith from two viewpoints in order to understand them: from the point of view of the religious faith of the Chinese people in the past; and from that of modern Chinese thinking and living conditions.

Comparison of the Old and New WASHINGTON( NC) - The New American Bible, to be published Sept. 30, is said to be the first Catholic English translation of the entire text-both Old and 'New Testaments-from the original languages of the Bible. The editorial board of the new Bible also said that the New

American Hible is the first and only English translation to make complete critical use of recently discovered ancient manuscripts. It includes all available Dead Sea Scrolls thus far deciphered and the Masada Hebrew manuscript, which give' new meaning to formerly obscure passages.

The board also said the new Dible is a faithful translation eXpressed in simple modern English, for contemporary man.

Judge not, that you may not be judged. For with what judgment you shall be judged: and with what measures you mete, it shall be measured to you again. ~ And why seest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye; and seest not the beam that is in thy own eye? Or how sayest thou to thy brother: Let me cast the mote out of thy eye' and behold a beam is in thy own eye; Thou hypocrite, cast out first the beam out of thy own eye; and 'then shalt thou see to cast out tIle mote out of thy brother's eye.

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall nol want. In verdant pastures he gives me repose; Besides restful waters he leads me; he refreshes my soul.

labor was such a woeful state. Labor and delivery' themselves 'were no particular gems, but at least in a few days I'd be able to walk' more comfortably again. . Secondly, it, seemed every Spring you were encouraged to have a large family and every Fall you were warned "woe to you if you are in labor." There was something incongruous about the. whole thing. However, one year I beat them to it., That particular. gospel was always read in the Fall. Early in September'l awoke one morning with warning cramps -appropriately on Labor Day. I never believed anyone had a baby on Labor Day. It was one of those ,things you joke about -but never happens. After watching the clock for 'awhile, it was soon stabilized at about 10 minutes apart. I decided I better wake my husband, and get: moving.. Llitle Too Sweet I finally aroused him enough to hear me. "I think I'm starting. The contractions are about 10 minutes apart. We'd better get to the hospital." With underwhelming enthusi. asm he mumbled, "Go back to sleep. Maybe it will go away." He rolled over and was sound asleep again. I counted two more contractions, which were getting closer. Another try: and he realized we had to hurry. Fortunately, the hospital is only a few minutes away. The woman at the admitting desk was sweet-just a little too sweet. "Oh, yes dear, have a seat and I'll be right with you." Countdown As the pains kept getti~g e1C?ser., I had the feeling she was ne....er coming back. I wasn't" in the mood for small talk, and she reopened the admission with, "Starting labor on Labor Dayhow nice." ' I really didn't care how nice it' was at the moment, I just wanted to get upstairs before it was too late. . "Now, dear, how far apart are your contractions?" "Six minutes." "Well, you'll be a little while yet, dear. This is your, first baby?"

"Oh. my heavens. yes! W~'d better get you upstairs. I'll get the information from your hus'band." A ' lovely nurse who knew all about delivering babie:> frdm reading textbooks assured the that she would call the doctor wheil it was time. 1 'That, Fast' . . ; I assured her I had already called the doctor-and it w'as time. : "On no, dear; your contraction's tire still five mfnutes apah. You'll' be awhiie yet." I' "That one was five minut~s. I' -The next one will be four. then three. In ten minutes. this baby is going to 'be ready tocom~.'· ;'Just relax. dear, It doesn't go ,that fast." I "Well, the 'last seven hJve eorie that fast, and we better ~et moving, or you'll be delivering tHe baby right here!" ,'! , Wryat little confidence I h:ad in her went down the drain wilen she observed "stretch marks" ~n my left side and wondered when I had my appendix remov~d.' Thank God, she was only helping deliver my baby. I'd h~te to have her assist at an appen: dectomy. " ': The doctor ar-rived, and 'as promptly as ·1 had' predicted, 6ur eighth, a girl, was born. i 'Old Ones' I By mid-afternoon I was f~el. ing quite well, and very cont~nt to lie in bed, eat, read and sle~p. I soon learned a friend of mine I had come in a few days eai'lier and was down at the other ~nll of the hall-with her 10th chjld~ , Since my bed was right near the door. I could overhear the conversation of the '''young mothers" walking in the hall. They sounded like the guided tour i to the oddities in the hospitat "Take a look at this one in here. She just had her eig~th. And, the 'qther 'old one' is ;all the way down the o'ther endshe had her tenth." i They soon had me feeling 'like a "medical miracle" having delivered so late in life-at the impossible old age of 32.

CHICAGO (NC)-Members of thl.' National Coalition of American Nuns called on the Church to approve "ordination for any ljualified woman who so desires." Speaking for the organization, which numbers I,SOO nuns across the country, Sister Margaret Ellen Traxler, S.S.N.D., of the group's executive board commented: "In keeping with 'Pacem in Terris," women mu;>t ask for ordination, since 'he who possesses certain rights has likewise the duty to claim those . rights as marks of his dignity.' " The text of the statement re, leased here said that "there is no theological, sociological or biological reason' for denying ordination to women." Above all, the coalition of nuns emphasized the need for more workers in the sacred ministry. "Is there Wisdom in speaking of vocation shortage while denying equality to half the Church's membership'," NCAN members asked. Sister Traxler said "granting ordinatiun to all qualified women who so desire will relieve the Church of centuries-old discrimination. This will do much for proclamation of the Sacred Word and above all for equality of all members of the human family."

Boots Warm, Fashionable" Sometimes Uncomfortablle

How many pairs of boots did you buy last year? If you managed to get by the whole Winter with only one pair, don't try it this year.

there is a good possibility that we can pick up some of these boots at discount prices. Then it would be possible to have more than one pair. Another drawback to the big emphasis On boots, with the dropped hemline, is that boots are warm and if they are worn indoors any length of time they become quite uncomfortable. While J personally love the look of boots, the feci of them on my feet hour after hour is something else. , In fact, in our school, at least 'on the' elermiilta'fy, ievel;, we're' --Je'~t'lt11'a't'tt{~1', hild}en,'d"'ift'r . ~ear 't'ile tot~ .typ~jM:\nht§'~~, wear the shoeless variety, that they bring shoes to change into. ,Appearance First On a few occasions I have forgotten my own shoes and have spent 8j miserable morning teach· ing in .boots.

Accept Broadca,sting Grant Applications NEW YORK (NC)-The Catholic Communications Foundation here is accepting applications for 1971 financial grants, for which individuals and organizations serving the broadcasting apostol· ate of the Church are eligible. Bishop John A. Donovan of Toledo, Ohio, foundation presiident, said "it is our intention to keep eligibility for grants as broad as possible." "I want to emphasize that the ever·increasing demand for trained personnel to serve the special radio and television responsibilities of the Church in the United States has become an important interest of the Catholic Communications Foundation. Projects and training opportunities in religious communications will undoubtedly carry a high priority with the CCF this year," the bishop said. A panel of communications executives reviews all applications for grants. The recommendations of the group are forwarded to the board of directors for final approval. Foundation grants are awarded during Jan-

LOS ANGELES (!':Ie) - Enl'ol1ment statistics indicate 5,000 fewer students wil1 attend Catholic elementary and high schools in the Los Angeles archdiocese in the H170·71 school year. An l'nrollment of 160,000 pupils is

t~xpected.

Aside from comfort the boots for the '70s are very, very hand· some. Many are laced giving them the look of the prairie or the covered wagon era; this type blends well with the gaucho pants or tweed midis. Others are decorated with straps, scal10ped edges or cut-out decorations.

Msgr. Donakl Montrose, secondary school superintendent, said chief cause for the decline was the rising cost of education. plus shortage of Religious teaching personnel. One. high school will close while another will operate a girls' department. but discontinue its section for boys. One parish school will close while four others are consolidating.

Pink or Blue? I was in high school when the first stylish boots for everyday wear began to be seen. These were ankle high with alpaca linings. We thought they were just beautiful and they certainly were after an era where galoshes were the only thing one could find to keep our feet dry,' (waterproof they were"':-fashion. able they were not)

It was reported that inability of the archdiocese to meet school deficits at present levels has brought transfers of thousands of students from parochial to public schools in the last five year-s, increasing educational costs by more than $50 million.

However, it took some time before the boot fad finally caught on and I remember quite distinctly asking a local shoeclerk if he had boots in stock (this was in the late '40s) and he glibly asked in retul11, "w'hat color, pink or blue?"

Aid. Hurricane Victims I,

Bishop, Priests, Nuns and laymen Work Tirelessly to Bring Assistance

CORPUS CHRISTI (NC)-Part of the $25,000 the diocese has spent meeting ,emergency needs of Hurricane Celia's victims has made its way to the people via 60 Sisters traveling on a mercy mission throughout the area. , "Day and night since Aug. 5," said Corpus Christi Bishop Thomas J. Drury, "60 Sisters of the Incarnate Word and Blessed Sacrament have worked ful1 time, giving thousands of hours of service in all areas struck by the storm." The bishop who has been visiting ,storm-struck areas himself, said the Sisters and parish priests along with hundreds of lay volunteers have worked "tirelessly to bring food, clothing, medical s~pplies and other forms of assistance to disaster victims." The bi'shop has'also met with officials -of the National Catholic Disaster Relief Committee from Washington, D.C., who arrived to. offer, consultation and evaluation of the Church's role in relief operations following the storm which hit Texas Aug. 3. Meeting with the bishop were Msgr. Leo J. Coady, committee chairman, and John M. Hayes. secretary. They made a two-day tour of the heavily damaged southern coastal towns and reo

turned to Washington to outline further plans for assistance. Church officials in the 'resort town of Corpus Christi have been working closely with the American Red Cross to distribute supplies. Hundreds of persons came to temporary headquarters in the basement of the Corpus Christi Cathedral. "It soon became apparent that our facilities were overtaxed and more space would be needed," said the bishop. He and Red Cross officials worked for several days to procure use of a local spacious coliseum for use as emergency facilities. State Rep. Carols Truan had, also urged that. the operation be moved to enable more persons to be handled more efficiently.

ST. LOUIS (NC)-Qut of a guilt-ridden American populace which for years justified leisure hours by "playing hard," springs a generation tuned into a softer definition-a realistic and satisfying concept of how to play and what to do with free time. America's new scope of leisure stems from rejection of the Puritun ethic that work conquers evil; according to Father Sean Quinlan, Irish-born theology professor at Fontbonne College here. In his analysis of changes in attitudes toward leisure, Father Quinlan said that Catholics "'have been the most successful in copying the Puritan ethic." But, he added, young persOns in the United States today-"-including Catholics-are rejecting that ethic and coming to understand the real value of leisure. "In the last two years or so," he cited," "the kids have started a new expression: 'That's a fun thing to do.''' He said he believes the contrast between this understanding of leisure and that of the "play hard" expression used by older Americans is most significant.

SAN DIEGO (NC) - Bishop Leo T. Maher has called, on all parishes in the San Diego diocese to form councils before the end of the year which will "involve all members of the Church in their priestly mission." He issued a "Guidelines for Parish Councils" brochure to all pastors with a remiIlder that a parish council involving clergy, Religious and laity "can be most helpful." . "It can help the people' of God become more aware.of their mission, more articulate in dialogue, and more involved in renewal efforts of the Church," he said. The guidelines include basic steps for setting up a council, a constitution and by-laws; a bibliography of books and pam· phlets on councils, and suggested' sermon outlines for pastors to explain councils to parishioners.

Jesuits. Appoint·· Press Officer LONDON (NC) - The English Province of the Jesuits has ap· pointed a layman to be its fulltime press officer. He is Hugp. Kay, 46, a Cath·· olic journalist, writer and broadcaster who was formerly editor of the Scottish Catholic Herald and an' assistant editor of the Jesuit .review, the Month. The Jesuits' London headquarters at Farm Street receives many inquiries from the press, television and the public about Catholic affairs. . Kay, whose salary is $7,200 a year, in addition to answering' these inquiries will also' act as general public relations officer for the province, help Jesuits in journalistic techniques, and pass on Jesuit information to the so· ciety's members throughout Brit· ain. The Jesuits are the first Catholic Religious community in this country to make such an appointment, but the Church generally is always cooperative with the mass media. Both the English-Welsh and the Scottish hierarchies have in the past few years set up press offices, in London and Glasgow, with a full-time journalist in charge. The Anglican Church has had' its own press office in London for many years and the other major Churches all have press officers, though they are not always journalistically trained.

Outlines Solution To Problem Of Theology BOSTON (NC)-An optimistic solution aimed at defining the relation of academic. theology to the Church's teaching authority was uutlined here by Father Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C. Addressing the ninth general assembly of the International Federation of Catholic Universities here, the University of Notre Dame head expressed confidence there will be an "ultimate theoretical solution." He based his viewpoint on the continuing dialogue between the federation and the Vatican Congregation for Christian Education concernng the freedom and autonomy of theology in Catholic universities since 1!l63 when he hecame federation president. In his talk to the assembly at Boston College, Father Hesburg expressed belief that the problem already has been solved in a number of institutions, "but not without some occasional anguish on the part of persons representing" the teaching authority of the Church. "One great result of our c,ontinuing discussions with the (Vatican) congregation should be an ultimate. theoretical solution recognized by the Church," Father Hesburgh said. "Until that happens, there will still be those who say that a Catholic university is a contradiction in terms. Personally, I am optimistic about an ultimate theoretical solution." New Challenges Father Hesburgh said that while there' is no 'limit, to the number of terms a federation president may serve, he personally believes it should be limited to two or three. His address marked his resignation as head of the organization. . Outlining his reasons for not seeking reelection, he said: "There are new challenges now facing the federation and I believe these will be fulfilled better with new and fresh leadership and the enthusiasm that comes with beginnings." He said the federation has grown in stature over the years to a point today where its representatives are invited to attend a majority of conferences throughout the world dealing with higher education. He recalled the difficulties encountered over a two-year period "to accomplish the research, planning and worldwide visitation of Christian theologians and theological faculties, Protestant, Catholic, Anglican and Orthodox" before the federation was ready to send delegates to a number of important conferences in the'mid1960s. Q

Ponder Voluntary Prayers in Schools CAVENDISH (NC)-Cavendish school officials announced that they may still introduce voluntary prayers into classrooms despite threats of a state aid cutoff and a Vermont Civil Liberties Union lawsuit. The state's education department has warned school officials that any school introducing prayers-banned by a U. S. Supreme Court decision - would face the loss of state educational funds.

Finishing its second season this month, the group can look back on two years of dramatic production based largely, its brochure says, "on faith, hope, sweat and the continued support of Father G. Joseph Putnam of St. Francis de Sales."

Aids Flood Victims In Northern Brazil NEW YORK (NC)-A $17,500 plane shipment of vaccines and other medicines was dispatched by Catholic Relief Services here to aid some 10,000 flood victims in northern Brazil. Bishop Edward E. Swanstrom, executive director of the U. S. Catholics' overseas aid agency, said danger of leptospirosis, a disease which Ultimately can cause kidney, spinal and brain damage, was feared among the flood victms.

the bill now pending before the House favored abortion and infanticide research. He said the "myth of the population explosion" is being per· petuated by the U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare by propaganda. But in a report issued by the National Planning Task Force on July 4, the government admitted population was not a major problem and the country was "heading for a stable population by the year 2000," he said. Step to Slaughter Dr. Ratner, director of public health in Oak Park, Ill., declared: "The social engineers are pushing for family planning Which includes abQrtion under the enormous misconception that there is a population explosion." Legalized abortion is the first step leading to the slaughter of deformed babies who were classeCl by Adolf Hitler as "the useless eaters," Dr. Ratner said. Dr. Ratner acknowledged he subscribes to the dictu!U that "you 'shouldn't impose your morality on another." He added that this should be remembered by legislators and citizens when they are con'fronted with the life and death of human beings. "Every legislator should speak out against killing, no matter what the consequence. Abortion is killing," the public health official said.

NOTRE DAME (NC) - The thorny question these days at the University of Notre Dame centers around what's going to happen to a $10,000 collection of cacti and other succulent plants amassed by Father Joseph McGrath, C.S.c. Father McGrath, former dean of the uni'versity Summer school, is about to leave here for' his new post as superior of the Congregation of Holy Cross' Sari Leandro (Calif.) House. During his 12 years' here, he collected more than 1,300 African and American water-storing plants now housed in a greenhouse behind the biology building. His specimens' won 10 blue ribbons over the last two years at the Chicago World Flower Show; plus eight second, third and honorable mentio~ prizes. Father McGrath disclaims the role of scientist, insisting he's just a devoted gardener. He said he has no intention of taking his collection to California, or beginning another one there. Caring for desert-breeding plants in changeable climates of this area is far from easy, but Father McGrath observed: "Once the bug hits you, there isn't much hope." He's particularly proud of his varieties of cactus. He said: "True cacti grow only in the AmericaS. Similar plants which store water in a sap or pulp for non-rainy days thrive in Africa, but lack the thorns and spines of true cactus."

We are also convinced that the grciwer employers are willing to' recognize such ,a union. The only question remaining is which union do the workers want. In order to' safeguard the newly-won peace in; the agricultural industry, 'and to avoid the possibility of another prolonged struggle, we, the members of the U.S, Catholic Bishops' Committee on Farm Labor, appeal to al1 the parties concerned to come together to see)< a resolution of this problem, As chairma,n of that committee, I, specifically cal1 up'on the United Farm Workers' Organizing CO,lllmittee, AFL-CIO, the, Western Conference of Teamsters, and the growers involved to meet with our committee to attempt to re,resolve and settle this dis~ pute, ' Because the current harvest is underway, it is ur e gent that a meeting be s c h e d u led immediately, Therefore, I am calling for such a meeting to be held early this week, Good W~I1, Courtesy Both parties responded immediately and very favorably to the committee's appeal and agreed . to hold a series of Il)eetings with representatives of

Raimondi Man-. zini, the paper's editor-in-chief, called for a reeva!uation of modern customs and attitudes to combat moral decadence. Censorship by local boards of r distinguished and respected citizen's would probably be ruled unconstitutional in Italy as it has been in the United States, , ,Manzini admitted.

By REV.

M.L:::;;: ;::....

GREELEY "'. •...... " the dignity and the integrity of the people and neither manipulate them, nor despise them, nor categorize them, nor denounce them. There are a number of obvious weaknesses in the Populist position. The Populist believes that· in the long run it is better to trust the people than not to trust ambitious and snobbish elites. But, of course, as Lord Keynes remarked, "we'fl all' be dead." And in the short run the people can be bliM' to injlistice and immorality. Thus, the majority of the American public is, I believe, sympathetically disposed toward blacks (though not toward college students), against organized crime, and quite dissatisfied and unhappy with "the war. But they are not outraged about discrimination against blacks, they are not horrified by the butchery of the war, and they are almost completely insensitive to the brigands of organized crime. The Populist must respond by saying that however desirable, both personally and socially, hor-' ror and outrage may be, it is not absolutely indispensable; at least it is not indispensable that everybody be horrified or outraged. The Populist acknowledges many weaknesses and deficiencies in the people, but he says, "Let him who is without sin throw the first stone," and argues, "While the people may not be very impressive, they are, after all, the only ones we have." Bringing Pressure The alternative to trusting them and trying to win their support for socialy enlightened policies is to commit power to small elites, which, at its best, we call oligarchy and, at its worst, we call fascism. Those who wish 'social change must be permitted, indeed be expected and encouraged, to bring pressure on the people so that they will be stirred out of their apathy and complacency enough to become aware of what the problems ar~ and to begin to experience whatever amount of horror and outrage of which they are capable. But there are a number of dif, ferent reasons for bringing pressure to bear on the people. One ~.

a third would be to win the support of the people for a change. I would argue that he who is exercising the third strategy will use rather different methods than he who is engaging in the first two kinds of activities. I would also contend that where one is dealing with critically important issues like pea<;e or racial justice the first two kinds of behavior are luxuries in which we cannot afford to engage. Wrong Methods My problem with much of the peace movement (including the Berrigan brothers) is not that they are for peace - I. am for peace, too-but that the methods they use to stir up horror and outrage in the people against the war are frequently exercises in either self-righteousness or punishment and are not exercises in persuasion. Instead of being designed to make the people realize the foolishness and the horror of war, they are designed to call attention to the demonstrators themselves (though not necessarily consciously so) and to .awaken not anger at the war but' anger at the demonstrators. I repeat: this sort of behavior we simply cannot afford. I am not, then, contending that the people are always right, but I am not prepared to concede either the opposite contention that the elites are always right: thal, let us say, the editorial writers of the New York Times or the New York Review of Books or the National Review, for that matter, are always right. What I am contending is that when the people are wrong it does no good to tell them that they ought to feel guilty or to denounce them as bigots or as a fascist mass or to despise them as "the silent majority." From His Viewpoint The only appropriate behavior is to try to persuade them to change their minds. It is not an easy task to persuade someone else to change his mind, especially when you and he speak a different language, and especially when you feel vastly su. perior to him. The only way that you .are ever going' to change someone else's mind is to put yourself in his position and try to see reality from his viewpoint. There is a risk in such behavior. You might actually .learn something. You might actually change your mind just a little bit, while your opponent is changing his mind. This is a risk that many members of the American elite see no point in taking. After all, when you are absolutely right all the time there is no necessity to be ready to change one's mind. I am not,. therefore, mystical on the subject of the people. As a matter of fact, I am enough a member of the elite not to like crowds pushy, elbowing, unruly, inarticulate masses of human beings who are also my brothers and my friends.

Good Guys U~ite h. Preserving Parish Program JERSEY CITY (NC) - Christ the King parish ht:re is quite likt:ly the unly one in the New(Irk (lrclll.liot:ese with a backyard swimming pool in which 100 youngskrs can be fuund frolicking on any givt:n day of the lung hot Summer. Hut for three days I't:ct:nlly the pool lay empty and the basketball backbounls Were silent. The Summel' program, which involves four seminarians, two Sisters, several Neighborhood Youth Corps members and the parish priests, had ground to a halt. It began when the basketballs were stolen. And some of the neighborhood youngsters who come every d'ay went to Father Edward Jocham asl<ing that the basketballs be replaced. He asked if they knew who had stolen them. They said they did. He told them to go and get them back. They said the kids who had stolen the basketballs were bigger and tougher. And Father Jocham said: "Those are the same characters who in a year or so will kick in your door and steal your TV. Unless you get yourselves, together as the good guys in the neighborhood, this sort of thing is going to keep on." He said the program would be shut down until they got the basketballs back. Combat Thieves Father Jocham was remembering that six people in the neighborhood. of the parish had been shot to death during tli~ mondl of July, al'}d one wounded and another stabbed. Part of the rationale behind the program is the effort, as he puts it, "to get the good people to unite and combat the thugs and thieves who operate in the neighborhood, to cope with the narcotics problem and other crime situations." The basketballs were stolen on a Friday. It was a hot weekend. The priests at Christ the King looked at the empty pool and wished the kids were there. There were no evening movies shown against the white wall of the building next door, no Christian Living course, and no remedial reading and math classes. Then o~ Sunday afternoon a little knot of youngsters appeared at the rectory door. One of them was, as Father Jocham recalls it, "a little bloody." They had the basketballs. And they and the priests had a celebration right then and there.

Sisters 'of Notre Dame 'Look Inward Discuss Mission at .International Meeting WASHINGTON (NC) - Nuns arriving here from Africa brought talk of strict racial separation, from Brazil came worries about too few Religious and too much revolution, from Japan, a story of conflict with Koreans. These and other concerns were described, at times· emotionally, by· the 250· fluns from around the world who Came here to an international meeting of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur. Tackling the theme of "Response to the 70's-our Corporate Mission,:' the Sisters conducted a three-week long discussion on tensions in religious community life as related to the secular world. In the process of self-examination they searched for different ways to communicate and meet the needs of Catholics they serve.

Foundation Makes First Three Grants WASHINGTON (NC) - The nonsectarian, tax exempt Human Life Foundation here made its first three grants, totaling $42,750. The fOl:mdation was established to sponsor research in human fertility and natural child spacing. A $28,000 grant went to Dr. Frank J. Rice, Fairfield (Conn.) University biologist, for a study aimed at monitoring effectiveness of child spacing by the "symto-thermic" method of recording basal body temperature and· physical symptoms to determine natural periods of infertility. A $10,750 grant went to Dr. Roland A. Patillo, Marquette University medical school, for a one-year study of steroid hormone receptors in ovulation control. A $4,000 grant went to the National Commission on Human Life, Reproduction and Rhythm for partial sponsorship of the Fifth International Symposium of Family Life, Abortion a'nd Sex Education scheduled iri Boston, Nov. 27 to 29.

Although the meeting was not a decision-making one, a summary of the lecture-filled gettogether generally proposed: Readdressing problems' and tensions of the time in taking a broader w<:>rld vision. Reevaluating educational needs of Sisters (many of whom are

Protest Russia's Treatment of Jews WASHINGTON (NC) - Members of the militant New Yorkbased Jewish Defense League gathered outside the Soviet Embassy here to protest Russian aggression in the Middle East and the treatment of Jews in the U. S.S.R. Led by league founder Rabbi Meir Kahane, 70 league members dressed in fatigue uniforms, combat boots and grey .berets, met at th'e embassy and tried to present a petition to an uniden" tified embassy official. Rebuffed, Rabbi Kahane read a stateinent threatening increased harassment of Soviet offices in' the U. S. Representatives of the league have already seized and temporarily held offices of a Russian airline, news service and travel bureau. The embassy gathering followed a 100-mile march here from Philadelphia.

Colle,ge Bagpipers Adopt .Mini Skirts JERSEY CITY (NC) - While women the country over debate the mini vs. midi hemline, a small group of men here have made up their own minds. They not only favor but are going to wear a sort of mini skirt. They won't be decked out in the finery all the time-just on parade and other special occasions. The male group are members of the Jesuits' St. Peter's College ROTC· band. The'y adopted the mini-more popularly known as kilts - as uniform of the band's bagpipers.

Five years ago, the Sisters in the 4,500-member international congregation would have celebrated the liturgy and listened to renowned speakers and each other from behind the cloak of voluminous black habits which most Sisters have since discarded. Today, the chid clue to their vocation is worn on a neck chain holding a metal-crafted. cross bearing the words, "te bon Dieu, qu'i1 est bon." ("The good Go<,l, how good he is.") Just as the nuns reached the decision to alter their dress, they now are reaching out to each other for ideas of future developments or new directions for their work, explained Sister Mary Ann Cook, an English teacher at Trinity College where the meetin~ ended Aug. 24. There are tensions, she said, as to "what is and what ought to be" the mission of the order. Solutions vary according to whether Sisters live in Africa, Japan, America, Brazil, England or wherever. Sister Ann was one of 13 "Notre Dame listeners" chosen to analyze and summarize the nuns' meeting. The listeners' 34page report will be presented for discussion at the congregation's area meetings throughout the year.

stroyed them. The Chinese went . so far as to call themselves "the Middle Kingdom" because, be-, tween' Heaven and Hell, they occupi~d the entire "middle" ground of earth. There simply were no other people. Or, if they had to be allowed for, they were simply barbarians outside, the kingdom of civilized men. One reason for the passian with which Chinese Communists today denounce the West is the' appalling, traumat!c shock they experienced when Westerners conquered them in the 19th century and, .in cities of European occupation like Shanghai, put up notices such as "this park is closed to dogs and Chinese."

.. .. Cardinal Wright Raps Population 'Scare Talk' WASHINGTON (NC)-Cardinul John Wright, head of the Vatican's Congregation of the Clergy; rejected a newsman's suggestion that the Church drop its rule of priestly celibacy with the comment that umarried priests are needed more than ever becl:tuse we live in an age "saturated with sex." Speaking in a copyrighted interview in the Aug. :il issue of U. S. News and World Report published here, the former Pittsburgh bishop rapped population explosion rumors as "scare talk." He also suggested that rhythm method birth control could be made to work if medical men were willing to give up the profits they make on birth control pill sales. . The Boston-born cardinal said that the root of many of the problems facing the world is the shift from a "know why" society to a "know how" society. "You see," Cardinal Wright explained, "for a long time we lived in a liberal arts civilization. The great universities of En: gland, the United States, Germany, France were liberal arts universities. "They've been replaced in the main by technological institutes, by technologywhich is to say that the sense of 'know why' has been replaced by . the sense of 'know· how.' Now, this brings with it inevitable changes of attitude. . 'Know Why' "Once people know how to do things~ . they -.develop- the· idea that since they can do them, maybe they shall. And when they've decided they shall, there develops a funny feeling that it's permitted to them." The Church's emphasis on the "know why" lies behind its continued opposition to artificial birth control, the cardinal added. "The Church has. a very serious complaint to make-indeed an indictment-against a civilization that is capable of polluti.ng the lakes, but not finding the 'know how' to take care of this pollution problem and of greater exploitation of ·the resources of the earth in behalf of persons. "The Church doesn't believe for a single moment that a woman who goes downtown in, let's say, some Midwestern town in the United States to buy contraceptives is making a contribution to the population problem in India or Latin America." Abortion Is Murder "It is this emphasis on "know hOW," Cardinal Wright continued, that has led to the growing acceptance of abortion in the United States. Basing his opinion on Englsh and American common law traditions, the prelate flatly denounced abortion as murder. One possible change in traditional Church teaching that the cardinal said might come was a relaxation of divorce rules' and the possibility that it might become easier for a priest to be dispensed from his obligations. Pointing to new discoveries in psychology and psychiatry, the cardinal explained that "there may be people who go through the marriage contract - or for that matter, the priestly ordination ceremony-unfit to do so.

Nun-Nurses Plan Migrant Mission

ROME. INTERVIEW: Bishop James Walsh gestures during a press conference in Rome. H~ said that there were some constructive aspects of the Communist Chinese regime that promised well for the future.

Sees Some Promise for China's Future Bishop Walsh Says Some Changes Helpf,:d ROME (NC)-The 'possibility for some kind 'of accommodation between the Church and Red _~~l}.ina .. is , s~e9 ..by '¥~9'knoll, Bishop James E. Walsh recently released after 12 years in a Chinese prison for alleged, espionage. "I shouldn't wonder if it did occur in the future, and not too far distant either," the 79-yearold American bishop said. Sitting in a wheelchair and wearing a blue dressing gown over pajamas, the bishop.. answered pre-submitted questions at a press conference in Salvator Mundi Hospital here. He told the newsmen that, although .he had "little sympathy" for Red China's regime, he sees some promise for the future of present day China. Even in jail, he said, he was able to note "certain indications of a very good spirit" within the Red Chinese government. It has "introduced certain changes into the life of the people of China which I think are very helpful and very good," he said. "I'm glad to be able to say this, althougft I have very little sympathy, of course, with a regime which restricts liberty to such an extent," he added. Three changes in Chinese life that augur well for the fUl.url', Bishop Walsh explained, are new provisions for the equality of women, equality of races and a complete ban on all forms of immorality and il,1decency. Bishop Walsh said that he was treated with "kindness and consideration" in jail. 1 had "excellent quarters, food and good medical care," he said. 'Still Tired, Weak' But an old friend of his, Father Francois X. Legrand, a Belgian priest who had spent four years in a Chinese· prison, said: "He is

talking in terms of Chinese standards, not ours." Commenting on his feelings afterb~ing released,. t.~e· bishop, who pF~vi(jusly referred to himself as a modern-day Rip Van Winkle, said: "I do feel rather out of water to some extent on first emerging into the free world, but I'll try to get my bearings as well as I can and perhaps I shall be able to stumble along in some fashion." The press conference took place the day after the bishop's emotion-charged meeting with Pope Paul VI: Bishop Walsh was introduced at the conference by Maryknoll superior general Father John J. McCormack, who said the bishop is "still tired and weak." Father McCormack asked. newsmen to accept brief answers to the questions. . The bishop's appearance was

WASHINGTON (NC)-A plan formulated here will send 100 skilled volunteer nuns into East Coast harvt'st fields next Summer to minister to the health, welfare and edUCational needs of an estimated I million migrunt workers and their familieS. The project will be directed by Sister Mary Maurita, newly named executive director of the Catholic Hosiptal Association. Known as East Coast Migrant Health Project, the seed financing has wille from a $130,000 u.s. Department of Health, Education and Welfare grant. But Sister Maurita suid additional funds will be sought ffCIm foundations, Catholic organizations and religiuus t.:ommunities, plus other sources. Tt!anls TIll'. pr.:-liminary plan l:alls fur three multi-disciplinary teams of five to seven nuns each to operate out of Palm Beach County, Fla., Northampton and Accomack Counties, Va., and Orange, Ulster and Rockland Counties, N.Y., plus at least one mobile team traveling with migrants who follow crop harvests. Sister Maurita said the nuns will aim tu provide health care primarily, but also to teach mothers about child care and set up education programs for the y.oung. "Religiuus wurkers have been responding to the needs of the people for hundreds of years," Sister Maurita said. "Their work, and the work of the churches, is even more essential and relevant than ever before as tne lJeople and their institutions strive to meet and solve increasingly complex challenges of a contemporary world that is both growing and shrinking simultaneously." She said technological advances in communications and transportation are "making the w0rld smaller," but also helping "to bring about growing needs among people in many areas of our life." U. S. government estimates place the number' of migrant workers at one million. Recent U.S. Senate committee hearings disclosed large numbers of migrants are poorly housed and fed, forced to live in crow.ded, unsanitary conditions as they move about following the crops.

Holy Ghost Fathers Provincial Named WASHINGTON (NC)-Father Charles P. Connors, C.S.Sp., educator, missionary and administrator, was appointed provincial of the eastern U. S. province of the Holy Ghost Fathers by Father Joseph Lecuyer, C.S.Sp. superior general, in Rome. A native of Pittsburgh and a priest since 1937, Father Connors in July completed a missionary assignment in Arequipa, Peru. Holder of a doctorate in canon law, he has been an official and active in affairs of the Canon Law Society of America. He taught moral theology at the community's seminary in Norwalk, Conn., and served in administrative posts for the congregation in this country, and in Paris, France.

WASHINGTON (NC) - The country can expect -to hear more and' more about the judiciary as one of three branches of the federal government. The general public has not alwavs been ~indfulof this fact in the' past, probably because it'. has read about and seen more of the workings of the legislative and executive br!jnches. Chief Justice Warren E. Burger gave a talk to the American Bar Association in St. Louis which he said was intendeq to "provoke debate and even controversy" over the need for overhauling and improving the courts. The talk was said to have been the first by a head of the Supreme Court to receive such widespread exposure. However, it seems not to have received all· of the exposure that was hoped , for. The fact that it was tele· vised required that the speech be . cut severely to keep within a 27-minute network time limit. The chief justice" inad~ it 'plain that he wanted to 'stand on all of hjs prepared address. But, since then many people have complained that they have not yet seen the complete talk. Immediate Reaction In the part of his talk' he did ' deliver, the chief' justice made several specific proposals, and' gave indications that more are to come. One suggestion was that Congress, in considering legislation to combat pollution, protect consumers and defend the rights of criminal defendants, should give some thought. to the impact such laws could have on the federal courts, already overburdened.

Expect to Consider Admiuion of China UNITED NATIONS (NC)-The United Nations General Assembly .will again be asked to take up the question of the representation of Red China, when it convenes its 25th session Sept. 15. J'he request again comes from 13 countries, with only slight changes from last year's list. . Cambodia is no longer associated with the request; Iraq and the Sudan are. Last year the decision to con-, sider the question was adopted by a vote of 71 to 48. However, on the question itself which is always phrased as "restoration of the lawful rights of the. People's Republic of China in the United Nations," the. vote was 48 for, 58 against, while 21 countries abstained. Most observers here do not anticipate much change in either the debate'or the vote.

This was expected to draw extensive comment from memo bers of Congress, but it has been 'less than expected. This likely was due to the fact that the very next day President Nixon vetoed a $4.4 billion education appropriation bill and an $18billion Housing and Urban Development appropriation, because he said, it would add nearly $1 billion to. his budget recommenda tions. This, together with the President's earlier veto of a hospital construction bill, which Congress overrode, brought spending and inflation strikingly to the fore as an issue in this year's congressional elections. This latest veto brought immediate reaction in Congress. Obvious Way The chief justice's recommendalion to Congress did draw quick criticism from some' unofficial sources. It was .contended .that while Congress should weigh the impact of such legislation . in terms of whether this impact should not be considered in terms of whether this type of law should be passed. Chief Justice Burger told the lawyers that "the most simple and obvious" way to deter criminal conduct is to "give the courts the manpower and tools, including the prosecutors and defense lawyers, to try criminal cases within 60 days after indictment." Do this, he said, and "let us see what happens." "1 predict," he added, "it would sharplyreducelhe' crime rate."

Swift and sure justice is one of the aims the crime legislation recently signed into law for the District of Columbia. The aCt calls for more judges and prose~ cutors and streamlined procedures. Members of Congress received a great volume of mail from constituents while this legislalation was under consideration, and Burger's latest proposal can be expected to receive a great deal of popular support.

Cathol ics Stress Church Position On Abortion HARHISBURG (NC) - The Pt:nllsylvania Catholic Conference warned both the state's ()emocrlltic and Republcan pat'tit:s of its opposition to any plank in a p<lrty platform which would favor lowering abortion restrictions. The statement on behalf of the state's t:ight Catholic dioceses was sent to the Democratic and Republican patform committees preparing for the November elections by Howard J. Fetterhoff, conference executive director. The statement said "the basic issue which must be considered is whether the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, through the elected representatives of the people, will continue to protect every innocent human being's righ t to life." Pro-Life Tradition "Until recently, the laws of every state in our nation, and indeed of every civilized nation in the world, have protected innoct:nt human life, whether independent, healthy and productive, or dependent, handicapped and in need of society's stronger members for support," the statemt:nt said. "It would b.e the greatest of tragedies if Pennsylvania's prospective gubernatorial and legis· lative leaders, or the great. parties sponsoring them, would depart from this pro·life tradi· tion which has made America so great," it added. The statement cited a Harris poll conducted in :June, disclos· ing from 40 to 50 per cent of the people of the country oppose passage of state laws "per· mitting abortion for almost any reason." Protection of Law Challenging a claim that 8,000 women die annually in the U. S. as a result of criminal abortions, the statement said the only official figures available are between 250 and 500, agreed upon by proponents and opponents of abortion at an international conference held in Washington in 1967. The conference suggested bet· tel' enforcement of present laws as the best means of reducing deaths from criminal abortions. "Those who would remove the protection of the law from the lives of the unborn, must prove beyond any doubt that it is not human life they are attacking," the statement said. "Once we allow the t<lking of human life in the earliest stages of its development for the sake of convenience, or for the sake of a pregnant woman's rights with no reference to her responsibilities nor those of the state, how can we logically protect human life at any other point, once that becomes a burden?" the statement asked.

'Black First' Caucus Delegates Assert ,

Pres·ent Demands to Apostolic Delegate WASHINGTON (NC)-In cas~ anyone still didn't get the word about- black natiomilism, black power and black pride and what they all mean to white .institutions, delegates' to the first national black Catholic caucus here came right out and put it in words nobody could misunderstand: . "We are black first, imd Catholic second." And to make sure their point got across, more than 125 of the caucus participants went right to the official residence of Archbishop Luigi Raimondi, apostolic delegate to the U. S., and presented a list of demands. Archbishop Raimondi was on a European 'trip, but a delegation se'cretary Joseph M. Whalen of Allentown, Pa., accepted the group's petition and listened while they prayed and sang Lift Every Voice and Sing, James Weldon Johnson's Negro An· them. Father Whalen said ·he did not know whether there would be a response to the petition. Growing Gap The petition asked that black Catholics elect four black bishops heading black regional dioceses. It asked also for an Afro'American liturgy and for increased support for the .recently established National Office for Black Catholics. During the convention, participants charged "We can hardly call the Catholic Church in America Christian and there is certainly little resemblance be-

tween it and the gospel of Jesus Christ." The statement and the demands grew out of workshops held during the caucus' threeday meeting at Catholic Univ'ersity. Delegates, speakers and visitors from groups as diverse as the National Welfare Rights 01',ganization and the District of Columbia's court of general sessions debated the. growing gap between the Church and black Cathoolics and wondered what could be done about it. 'Answer Positively' Keynote speaker Father Law· renee Lucas urged the 500 participants, representing ,about 800,000 black· Catholics, to stay in the Church even though it is "white and racist." Father Lucas, black pastor of New York's Resurrection Church, charged that the Church's hierarchy was ~'running away" from race problems. But he reminded

his listeners that "you can only run so far and then you have the ocean." He also told black Catholics not to worry about the fact that only 165 of the country's 60,000 priests were black. "A hundred dedicated. people can do what needs to be done," he reminded. Brother Joseph Davis, S.M., head of the National Office for Black Catholics, struck a similar note. "I suggest we answer the question of whether or not we can remain Catholic positively * * '" it's quite possible the Church no longer lives up to Jesus Christ. But it's possible God is manifesting himself today through our heritage and culture."

STOCKHOLM (NC)-The adult rducution movement of the Catholic. lllinlJl'ity in SWt:den is making progrl·ss with the help of state aid. Adult educatiun has always been a malleI' of great importance to the Catholic Church in Sweden. Since the Church wlls able to resume its work here 100 years ago, adult education has been the most difficult and costly palt of the priests' and Sisters' daily work. From the cities and industrial areas where they were stationed they had to travel'regularly hundreds of miles through the vas~ and sparsely developed country to reach youths over 14 anti prospecti~e converts taking religious instruction. Until the present time the state was utterly indifferent tow'ard religious minorities' educational problems. The only concession has been to .exempt Catholic childrl;!n in state schools from Lutheran religious instl'llction. Study Circles The Catholic Commission for Atlult Education was founded in 1968 in order to put Catholic adult educational activities on a level with other such movements in the country and to get public grants for them. But as a separate association the commission was too small to compete with . the. 12 large edllcational associations in the adult education field in .getting public grants for the work. Much of the adult educatiun prugram in Sweden consists of study circles that meet regularly. The decision was matle to join the State (Lutheran) Educational Association and thus have a bettt:r chance of sharing in the state subsidies. The Catholic commission became a full member of the Lutheran association in 1968. .
