Fo'undress of Incurable Canc'er Hospital Marks l02nd Birthday NEW YORK (NC)-A woman who has devoted 57 years of her life to the service of incurable cancel' pa"tients will m~rk her 102nd birthday here in a hospital which she founded in 1915. She is Mrs. Catherine McPar­ lan, foundress and administrator of the House of Calvary home and hospital for cancerous poor. Mrs. McParlan's career In the welfare field began after the death of both her husband and. her only child, a five year old daughter in the same year. She gave herself and her world­ ly goods to the Women of Cal­ vary, a then newly launched as­ sociation of. Catholic widows es­ tablished in 1894· by Mrs. Anne Blount Storrs, a convert. Mrs. McParlan became one' of the first 12 Women of Calvary of the New, York Archdiocese. a' group which devoted their lives to the care of cancerous poor. She is the sole survivor of the . original 12 women. THe death of Mrs. Storrs in 1906 left Mrs. McParlan to real­ ize almost single-handed their long planned dream of a cancer hospital. She succeeded in estab­ lishing it at its present site In 1915. Under -Mrs. McParlan's 'ad­ ministration a new wing was added in 1924 and another in 1932. On her 98th birthday His Emi-

Some call this sort of thing "writing straight with crooked lines". Others insi~t it is crook­ ed all right but has no other line. Our jest is on the grim side but I can see Dennis Day is seri­ ous enough if he can find a movie 01' TV producer to back him. Not, you understand, In anything sor­ did 01' sensational for the sheer sake of shocking people, but .something to take him along with the sharper realism in many of our bjgger movies and TV dramas. This trend threatens to leave in the backwash. performers who stick to purely escapist stories and characterizations. Good, con­ scientious Catholic entertainers are not exempt because, one way 01' another they prefer their shows to be exemplary. Nor, per­ haps, Is there anything patently' exemplary about plays that simp­ ly side-step the unpleasant facts of human experience. This was, Ann Blyth's point when she ac­ cepted "The Helen Morgan Story", which; incidentally, gets Legion of Decency approval for adults. Maybe, like flu, the idea is going around families. "Dumb Bunny" Ann's brother-in-law, Dennis Day, made his first big personal hit as Jack Benny's "dumb-bun­ ny" partner back in 1939. Ex­ cept for. a two-yea I' , "vacation" with Uncle Sam's navy, he has been more or less stuck with the cluck ever since, Even when ·he started his own weekly TV show, his sponsors urged him to keep alive the main traits of Benny's straight-faced funny-man. His versatility as comedian and mimic. like the charming Irish· tenor, must re­ main subservient. The same kind of carbon-copy thinking also forced his show in­ toa competitive slot opposite "I Love Lucy". This is the way TV nctworks make or break good programs and gifted people. The Dennis Day Show ran up a rat­ ing of 30 or over and, who knows, may have sold more product than some r·ating 40. But TV sponsors book playing time on estimates of the people watching the pro­ gram, not on those buying the product. So it was "beat Lucy or get lost". Dennis put his series on films and owns them. When, In the near future, these are syndicat­ ed for widespread, local replays, they may do him more good than they did while he was working himself dizzy on a weekly net­ work basis. Meanwhile he is not idling. He is shortly at the Shamrock, Hous­ ton, Texas, then goes to Blin­ strub's, Boston, Oct. 21 and ,San Francisco's Fairmont through November. On Sept. 22 he re­ joins Jack Benny fOI' his sea­ son's kick-off over CBS-TV; on Oct. 5 he guest-stars with Gisele McKenzie over NBC-TV and a long list of othel' TV spots and personal appearances is shaping.

From a constitutional point of view, it raises the ques­ tion of the dual nature of our government-state author­ ity and federal authority and the provinces of· both. The very progress inherent in ademocratic form of government ­ demands the constant application of principles to con­ crete situations to determine right courses of action. We are confident that in the calm atmosphere oUegality the issue wiWbe determined. The moral implication ,is less diffiCult. The answer to the problem is Obvious, however difficult it may be to follow out.

, Is there ali ideal length for the engagement period? Rose and I have been engaged for one year, and we're not sure when' we'll be able to get married, We've been told that the Church discourages long engagements. What is considered to be a long en.' , t and what does a . volve special problems for one gagemen , partner or the other. couple do ~f conditions do / You ask what is to be done!f not permit marriage for,the I ~arriage s~ill remains impostime being? Before answering your questions it might be well to point out t hat the term engagement is used rather loosely in our country, At' one time it rep'resented an external rite and a formal promise to marry pronounced before witnesses such as the relatives or a representative of the Church. The Church has a formal engagement, or betrothal ceremony although changing so, cial conditions cause it to be used rather, infrequently. At present the formal rite usually consists in the giving of the engagement ring, and its wearing signifies that the couple have exchanged promises to marry. Strictly, speaking, the external rite is not necessary and Is sometimes ig­ nored. The essential point is that the couple have come to a defi­ nite agreement that they are to be married. Conditions IDiffer The Church has' no explicit; general position on length of engagement. The conditions as­ sociated with courtship and the entrance into marriage differ widely in various cultures so that ·clear-cut norms of universal ap­ plicability cannot be devised. Whenever rules pertaining to length of engagement are ad­ vanced, therefore, they have spe­ cific soc,ial situations in mind and must be interpreted accordin~ly. In general, religious leaders have two concerns in mind when for­ mu!ating such roles. First, they Wish to assure the ostability of marriage. Second, they wish to . guard against violations of cha.s-

SIble? If thIs is really the case, and yoti should make sure that It is, you had best try to deter.­ JJV.ne precisely when lnarriage will be possjble. If this can't be done after two years of engage­ ment, why continue the affair? If the date must be postpon!ld to a fairlY definite' time In the

future, then yoti must regulate your .present relationships ac­ cordingly. This requires sincerity and honesty with yourselves for you will need to keep your. feel­ ings under constant watch. In general, avoid frequent and pro-

longed physical' displays of af­ fection. After all, you may as well learn at once that !hey are only one way of showin~ love.

NEW ORLEANS (NC)-The teen-agel's practice of "going steady" was deplored by Arch­ bishop Joseph F. Rummel of New Orleans, iii a pastoral letter read In ,churches' of the Archdiocese of New Orleans. "In recent years,' 'he wrote, "there' has developed especially in co-educational high schools and even in -the upper grammar grades .of elementary schools the 'practice known as 'going steady' which consists in the exclusive association, companionship or friendship between a particular boy and particular girl. "On the way to and from school, on the playground, at school parties and in, picture showings and other social events they are constantly in each oth­ er's company almost to the com­ plete exclusion of others.

In a special message for Cath· olic Press Month-observed in South Afi'ica in September­ Archbishop Owen McCann of Cape Town said that the Catho­ lic press provides a "valuable supplement to the preaching and hearing of the word of God." Archbishop McCann, who is, chairman of the Press Depart· ment of the South African Bish· oPs' Conference, stated:

"It also contributes greatly to the fosteJ:ing of a strong Catho­ lic life by the information it puts forth and by the stimulus its re­ porting of so mimy splendid achievements and examples of virtue proffers.

"Further, the Catholic Press serves as an importimt· instru­ ment in the formation of sound public opinion, while at the same time it directs our people in a Christian approach, through the light of the p'rinciples of the Faith to the problems and ques­ tions of the day. "It' is to be noted with con­ cern that in the public press an unhealthy sensationalism is in many instances to be found; while literature that disregards Bnd undermines Christian moral­ ity has become more and more widespread in the country..

"Catholics know how to deal with' these dangers, but one of the chief means is the reading and support of. the Catholic press." . .

Feast of La Saiette Today Continued From Pllge OM

Two hOUI'S passed. Suddenly they woke with a start. There in the ravine. only a few feet away. was a blazing circle of light. brighter than the sun. The chll­ dren were terribly frightened. "Hold onto that staff of yours," Maximin whispered to the girl, "and I will hold onto mine, and if that attempts to hurt us, I will give It a hard whack." How ' courageous we are at 11! Dazzling Light As the great light became even more dazzling, the children held their hands to their faces. Then there was a break in the shim­ mering globe, and the children could discern In It the figure of a woman. She was seated, bent forward. Her face was bowed In ller hands. Her elbows rested on her knees. She was weeping. Poor, simple Maximin guessed that this weeping mother must be a mother whose chi I d l' e n had struck her arid who had come to this lonely mountain to cry her heart out. The woman now arose. Her tear-stained face was the most beautiful that the chlldren had ever see·n. Her arms wer'e crossed upon her breast, upon which hung a crucifix suspended from a chain. The figure on the cross seemed afire. To the left of the crucifix was a hammer; to the right. a pail' of pliers, half-()pefl: the common tools that drove In and later removed the nails from the Saviour's frands on, Calvary. Then the woman spoke. "Come to me, my children," she said in a voice of sweet gentleness and

command. "Do not be afraid. I

am here to tell you something of

the greatest Importance."

Pope Speaks on ·Moral Standardls Continllecll . From Page One Dc bodies. The letter addressed to the hierarchy of the whole world is the 39th of the present pontificate. It Is organized into

four principal ·parts: a sectlon em general instruCtions and one each devoted to motion pictures, Jradlo and television. Television is particularly un­ derscored, as a new medium, for its marvelous powers for good as well as, its great powers for cor­ ruption. . "This special power which te­ levision enjoys, of giving pleasure withi.l the family circle," says the Pope, "is reckoned of very great importance, since it can contribute a great deal to the religious life, the intellectual de­ velopment and the habit& of those who make up the family." For this reason, the Pontiff exhorts Catholics; particularly the clergy, to turn their atten­ tion to "this new art," and to give their full and active cooper­ ntion to the development of Its advantages. . Review Offices The encyclical, one of the longest issued by Pope Pius XII. calls on the .bishops to establish without delay national offices for motion pictures, radio and television in every country where they ·do not already exist. Such (lffices, the Pope says are to be entrusted to "men skilled in the . use °bf these arts," with a priest appointed by the bishops assist­ ing them as advisor. In this, the Pope echoed the caJl of Pius XI, in his 1936 en­ cyclical Vigilanti Cum, for . Catholic review offices for mo­ tion pictures in every nation. In that letter, the work of the Le­ gion of Decency, organized by the American Bishops on a na­ tionwide basis more than two years earlier, was explicitly praised. In the current encyclical. Pope Pius XII states: "We urge that in each country. th,~e offices dealing with motion pictures or radio or television should depend on one and the same committee, or at least act in close cooperation. At the same time, we urge the faithful, parti­ cularly those who are vigorous members of Catholic Action, to be suitably instructed 50 that they may perceive the need to gi\'e willingly to these offices their united and effective sup­ port. Hierarchy Instruction "And since there are a number ,(If questions on this subject not capable of ea.sy explanation and .Eolution in individual countries, it will certainly be very useful if the. national offices of each' country unite into an interna­ tional association to which this Holy See, after due considera­ t:!lln, will be able to give approv­ al. "

The faithful themselves, the Pope writes, should "fulfill the grave obligations o. acquainting tl'Jemselves with the decisions is­ sued by ecclesiastical authority on matters connected with mo­ tion pictures and· of faithful 'ly obeying them." In order that this be done, Pope Pius advises two things·: That bishops, if they deem it appropriate, set aside a special day each year for instructing the faithful on their duty, particu­ larly with regard to movies, and urge them to 'pray for proper orc: in that field. . That the decisiQ,lls and direc­ tives of the bishops be publishtd anti widely distributed along with a short commentary. !Eternal Salvation In his inti'oduction to the en­ cy :lical, the Pope states the Pl'O­ priety ·of' the Church's concern in the fields Ilf motion pictures, radio and television. First of all, the encyclical says, it is because of the great influence these "new fl/rms of art" exert on the man­ ner of thinking and acting of in­ dividual:" and of all groups of men. But most of all it is be­ cause "hers is tlle duty, and for l. much stronger reason than all

others can claim, of announcing fl message to 6very man: This is the message of eternal salva­ tion."

It adds:

"Unless the mounting develop­ ment of technical skill, applied to the diffusion of pictures, sounds and ideas, is subjected to the sweet yoke of the law of Christ, It can be the source of countless evils, which appear ·to be all the more sel'ious, because not only material forces but also the mind are unhappily enslaved, and men's inventions are, to that extent, deprived of those ad­ vatages which in the design of God's providence, ought to be their primary purpose." In words paralleling Vigilanti Cura's exhortation to the film industry "to create at least the flavor of undestanding among nations, social classes and races," and to "champion the cause of justice," Miranda Prorsus sets out these aims for the' three en­ tertainment media: Aiins for Media "Let them be at the service of truth in such a way that the bonds between peoples may be­ come yet closer; that they may have a more respectful under­ standing of each other; that they may assist each other in any crisis; that, finally, there may be a real cooperative effort be­ tween the state officials and the individual citizens." Pope Pius points out that the basic problem in l~gard to mov­ Ies, radio and TV is the fact that they are directed to' an unse­ lected, general audience-one in­ cluding vast throngs of men and women differing in age, way of life and culture. Especially in- respect to the home, the Pope writes: "It is wrong to introduce risk in any form into the sanctity of home surroundings; tile Church, therefore, as per right and duty demand, has always striven with all her force to prevent these sac" - j portals from suffering violence under any' pretext . . ." Sound Morals In the section treating on mo­ tion pictures, the Pontiff coun­ sels movie critics, theatre man­ agers, actors, producers and dir­ ectors to remember their dignity as human beings. They are re­ minded that as responsible and eXp'edenced artists they should know that they are not permitted to lend their talents or to sup­ ,port in any way the production of plays that are contrary to sound morals. He goes on to say: "But the heaviest responsibility -though for a different rea­ son-fails on the directors and producers ... who are influen­ tial by reason of their money or natural talent in the production of films. . "We therefore give a fatherly warning to Catholic film direct­ ors and producers, not to permit 'films to be made which al'e op­ posed to the Faith or Christian mc.rals, But if-which God for~ bid-this should happen, it is to be the duty of the bishops to admonish them, and if necessal'y, to impose appropriate sanctions." Listener's Obligation "Ecclesiastics are not per­ mL:ld," the encyclical adds, "to offer their cooperation to film directors without express con­ sent of their superiors since, ob­ viously, to give sound advice in this matter, special excellence in· the art and a more than ordinary trr.ining are essential, and a de­ ci . ;n on these CD mot be left to the whim of idividuals." In the section on radio, the fOI:e states that the first duty of· the radio listener is that of choosinr, carefully and dellber­ B.tely among the programs of­ fer: j. Radio programs' should be admitted into the home indis­ ~riminately no more. than per­ sons are invited indiscriminate!. . lccording to the Pon·tiff.

Davenport, Catholic Messenger

By coincidence, the same week that Archbishop Am­ Ieto Giovanni Cicognani, Apostolic Delegate to the United' States, was delivering an address on, behalf of maintain­ ing Latin as the officiai language in the Western Church, Father George W. Casey, a veteran priest of the Bosto.n bered that He did not deliver It Archdiocese, was devoting to us in Latin but In the tongue his weekly "Driftwood" col­ that was common to. Him and His umn in The Pilot to a consider­ ation of Latin as "the language barrier." I do not think this difference of opinion was either annoying to Archbishop 0 l' Clcognanl embarrassing to Father Casey. Expression 0 f different opin­ Ions within the Church. as the present Holy Father said'" a few years ago, "can surprise only those who do not know the ChUl'ch 01' know her only poorly. Because the Church is a living body, something would be want­ ing in hel' life If public opinion were lacking ... Enshrines Treasures In sum, the archbishop's argu­ ment In favor of Latin-and we must keep In mind that his ad­ dress was directly pointed to priests and the preisthood-Is ,that "great treasures" of the C,hurch. rubrlcll, dogmatic defi­ nitions, breviary, etc., are "en­ shrined in the Latin language," that the laity can "readily follow IIlnd understand the Mass and the administration of the Sacra­ ments" by using translations at these services; that seminarians can develop a "familiarity and love" for .Latin; that Latin has demonstrated Its h a l' din e S B through centuries of usage; and that "use of Latin unites priests all over the world In prayer, in culture, in friendship ... (and) forms a' universal ecclesiastical communion, a most pleasant and advantageous brotherhood." Father casey, on the other 'hand, asks some questions. "By the use of Latin for all, the handful that understand and the enormous majority of those who do not," he writes, "we get uniformity-as the mechanical recitation of prayers in our own' tongue gets unanimity-but do we reach God with them? "Do we have that meeting of minds which Is the very essence of prayer? That speaking of heart to heart of which the Scriptures speak, that inter­ communication between God and ourselves that Is so pien;ing, and such an experience of revela­ tion?" Father Casey adds that he is Gpeaking for no one but himself and says: "I feel, that I have lost incal­ culable Information, inspiration and communication that I might have gotten out of the hour that I have given to the sa~ing my breviary every day for nearly foUl' decades, because I must,say It in a lanp;uage that Is· lal'gely foreign to me." • Must Be Intelligible He quotes from St. Paul n. Cor. 14/b) the passage that In­ cludes this query: "Unless with the tOnque you utter intelligible speech how shall It be known what is said ... ?

;"Father Considine Certain . Freedom to Win in Africg "

the bishops of French West Afri­ ca recently said frankly that the Church belongs to the llfe of Africa; that no Catholic is re­ strained by his religion. but rather is encouraged by it to help build the future Africa socially. economically, politically as well as spiritually. "Remember," the bishops said. "there is never, properly speaking. the French Church, the German Church, the Chinese Church. the' African Church, but only the Church of Jesus Christ, present in France. In Germany, in China. in Africa, now and always the same"

Modern Africa is a world. in ferment, that is moving steadily tow.f11.ds its goal 'of self-determination. Father lQhn I.
