Lauds Pope's Stand On p'lane Hijackings WASHINGTON (NC) - Mrs. Golda Meir, Prime Minister of Israel, said at a press conference here she appreciated Pope Paul VI's r~cent condemnation of hi· jackings, even though she felt the Pontiff could do little to dissuade Arab hijackers. The prime minister-in Wash: ington for talks with President Richard Nixon and Secretary of State William P.Rogers-added: "I thin'k that by this time almost everybody in the world has been shocked * .:..:. (but) I don't think everybody who -is against hijacking can do very much about it.

"There are countries that can do something about it. There are airlines that can do something about it, and there are pilots' organizations that can do something about it," she said, "and the time is overdue where action has to be taken."

ot the Philade:lphfa archdiocesan schools, Msgr Edward T. Hughes, 4!:l, stressed the impol'tance of (Jbta'ining outside aid to keep the system's 'i.87 elementary and 31 high schools operating. His successor, Msgr. Francis B. Schulte, 42, who had been assistant superintendent of schools since 1960, readily agreed to accept the advice. The change in command of the school system was announced by Cardinal John J. Krol of Philadelphia, who disclosed that Msgr. Hughes was appointed last February as pastor of Our Lady .of Fatima church in nearby Secane. , "At the time of his appointment as pastor," the cardinal said, "Msgr. Hughes graciously offered at great personal sacrifice to continue as superintendent of schljols until plans for the opening of this school year were compIE·ted."

Commenting on his appointment to Boston, 'Bishop Medeiros said, "All I know how tQ be is a pastor." And he was assured that this IS all that Boston would look for and desire and rejoice in. The ,faithful of the Diocese of Fall River rejuice, tuo, that one of their own is returning to New England and is returning to the great Se'e of Boston to serve its people as he served the people of Fall River as curate and pastor and chancellor, as he served the people of the Diocese of Brownsville in Texas as Bishop.

'~ij,-

The people of Fall River and Browilsville know him as a pastor, as one whose total concern is God and the People of G~d. , His considerable intellectual and administrative talents were always/at the service of God. His paramount interest was to grow closer to God, to sanctify himself that he might proclaim God to the people not only in his words bJJt in' his life. This is the heart of a pastor that he brings to Archdiocese of Boston.

th~

Knowing how-to' be kind without being weak, strong without being harsh, he brings a spiritual leadership that points always and in all things to God. Shunning the label of being in one camp or another, he is the priest, the ma~ for all people, the man of God who seeks to serve all that he might bring all to the' happiness of God that he himself experiences, to the presence of God that: he himself enjoys, to the strength of God that he himself relies upon. This, then, is the pastor. who prepares to go to Boston. His shepherding of the faithful of Boston will be a won~ drous spiritual advenfure for them and for him.

Women Doctors Enrolled among the Doctors of the Church on Sun~ day last was S1. Theresa of Avila, and S1. Catherine of . Siena will receive the same title this coming week. Thus these two women join the thirty male doctors of the Church who have been hailed for their eminent learning, heroic sanctity and unquestioned renown. o

Perhaps such recognition to women by the Church has been overdue. , But it is an acknowledgement that their role in the Church is by no means a subservient one.

Appointment Singular in Age of Renewal

Cotltinued from Page One an estimated l ,100 messages had been received both at the Chancery 'and the Bishop's residence, Bethany House. Respect for Archbishop-f:ltct Medeiros was evident in every message, ranging from the flowl~ry phraseology of the Church's hierarchy to the simple "Best Wishes" of a former neighbor in Fall River. The overwhdming flood of felicitations obviously fmbar-' rassed-but pleased-the Archbishop-flect. "My, my," he smiled, "It's very nice to hear from' so many friends." Several 'members of the Chancery Staff and additional lay . workers spent many hours soning the messages, tracing addresses, deciphering names and 路Iooking up Zip Codes. Each me~颅 sage will - or has been - answered by the man who four years ago came to a little-known and new Diocese, on the banks of an international river, but low on the totem pole of progress. Scope of the messages showed to the Nth Degree the importance of Archbishop-elect Medeiros' new duties. Massachusetts I Governor Francis Sargent was among the first to respond to th1e appointment. Then, in no particular order, came wires from Speaker of the House John McCormack; former Supreme Court Justice Arthur Goldberg, who also served a stint as U. S. Ambassador to the United Nations; Texas Senators Ralph Yarborough and John Tower; Portuguese Ambassador to the U. S. Vasco Viera Garin and a former Portuguese Ambassador; U. S. Secretary of Trlms'portation. John Volpe;' Valley Congressman Kika de la Garza and assorted other U. S. Representatives from all over New England, plus uncountable Massachusetts state officials; Mayors, Aldermen, policemen and firemen. were heard from - also housewives, bank presidents and welfare cases. In Church-related organizations, there were several hundred messages alone, including Knights of Columbus, Better World Movement, Altar Societies, Legion of Mary, St. Vincent de Paul and you-name-it, it was there, , The ecumenical spirit was evident in lengthy congratulations from the Massachusetts Council of Churches and the Boston Lay / Caucus, plus the Greater Boston Ministerial ,Alliance.. Many poverty action groups were in the ever-increasing stack of mail, mostly urging the Archbishop-elect to "keep up the good work." Some offered aid and assistance to the new leader of 1,917,000 Catholics in the Boston area. At' presstime,

"I want to make it clear that I believe these forcasters of disaster are wasting their time, their taltmts and their energies in their verbal handwriting and inordinate self-criticism," Doyle said. "They would be far better spent generating some new ideas, fashioning new approachl::s, learning modern techniques, ml::thods of publication prodoclion and distribution and opening up untried channels of read· er contact and service," he· added. Doyle called for men and women filled with Christian hope and joy who believe in the.

A friend of ours is one of the "richest" people we know. He is completely paralyzed from his neck dowry. He was stricken by polio while in college, 18 years ago, Yet, he considers himself lucky. Why? Because he isn't burdened with all the distractions of those who are occupied by the ordinary problem's of d~lily life.

'70 only to expire almost at once.

is thinking of becoming an every other week publication. Only the brisk, irreverent Critic , seems to be prospering and that journal's brisk, irreverent editor, Joel Wells, is the first to con, fess 'that he's, not sur.e' how, long thatwil1 last (as long;ls, the .Critic is able to I~ughaievery­ ,thing including itsel~ I suspect it wil\ propsper indefinitely). The journalists who find them,selves backed into a corner by . their fal1ing circulation have an explanation: "People are no' longer interested in the Church.'~ One ~onders. The Dutch cate,cnism sells almost 200,000 copies , the' jerusalem Bible is a fantastic success ,for Doubleday, the secular media continue to be fascinated with Catholic problems. It is 'not so much the Church that readership is no longer interested in, one suspects, as it is the view of the Church served up by many of the Catholic journals. Lived Off Ghetto In some sense, however, many of the journals may be suffering from their own success. They have argued for years that Catholics should break out of the ecclesiastical ghetto but now the journalists discover that they. ,lived off the ghetto. In urging' ~lheir readers to get' out of the ghetto they were in effect urging them to stop reading ghetto journals. Many of us, for example, much prefer to get our liberal left party line directly from the New Republic or the New York Review of Books instead of absorbing its pale and tardy reflection from the Commonweal and the feature stories from the National Catholic Reporter.. We also have a good deal more respect for. the intellectual competence of those who. write for the secular journals 'than we do for the intellectual midgets who have replac:ed the greats of formers years on the Commonweal. One would; for example. be far more inclined to shape' one's world view having read TRB than after reading John Deedy. One would be much. more impressed on what Hannah, Arendt has to say on violence than one would be by what· Peter Steinfels has to say and one would

Woman Stresses Housing Problem

THE ANCHOR-路 Thurs., Oct. 1, 1970

UNITED NATIONS (NC)-"If Women's Lib wants to make a real impact it should attack the housing problem," according to Sen. Hetfn Benitez of the Philippines. Sen. Bdntez made her observation following a news conference on the meeting of a group . of housing experts at the United Nations, which she attended. She is chairman of the Philippine Senate's Committee on Housing, Urban Development and Resettlement, and former chairman of the UN Commission on the Status of Women. The group met to discuss the social aspects of housing, a theme long neglected in the various UN bodies concerned with the subject. According to Eric Carlson, chief of the UN Housing Section, the two-week meeting of 11 experts from eight countries defined what is meant by the "social aspects of housing," and deAMBASSADOR GREE[fED IN FALL RIVER: Archbishop Medeiros and Bishop Conveloped a series of guidelines for housing policies that will "be of nolly greeted Dr. Theotonio Pereira, Ambassador from Portugal to the United States, interest to both developed and when he visited the Fall River Chancery Office in May, 1962. ._ I developing countries."

Bishops ReaHirm Church Teachings

THE ANCHORThurs., Oct. 1, 1970

Prelate Reject~ Racism C.harge BALTIMORE (NC) - Msgl'. William C. Newman, superintendent of the Baltimore archdiocese's department of Catholic education, rejected charges of racism leveled at" Catholic schools here by a black Catholic leader and a Baltimore judge. Answering radsm charges levelled by Lee B~rroughs and Judge Joseph C. Howard, who said that blacks were systematically excluded from Baltimore's Catholic schools, Msgr. Newman com!llented: . "I'd 'like to see them prove what they say. They should have done some .research. Anyone can make an accusation. "I'm not :>aying we're perfect. We're willing' to admit that the Church has not addressed itself to the black community as much as we would have liked to. . There is a great deal of work to be done and it is not just with the black community." . Burroughs had charged, "We're . fighting for black identity and black liturgy. We want black priests. If we can't get them, we want black trustees and the experience of running our own churches. We are also looking for white priests that can relate better to blacks." : The chairman of Baltimore's black Catholic lay caucus, Burroughs said that he 'was not interested in a head count of blacks in Baltimore's Catholic schools. Instead, he said, he is looking for a change in white attitudes that discourage blacks from going to Catholic schools.

WELLINGTON (NC)-ln the wake of criticism and contro, versy over a new religious in~truction program, the New Zealand bishops have published a "Directory of Doctrine" reaffirming Catholic doctrine on all major p'oints. The directory will serve as the doctrinal basis for the program.

Critics of the p.rugram, mainly "vnservatives and older persons who said they dislike the change from traditional teaching methods. claimed that the new program, called "The Living Ught," does not clearly affirm such doctrines as Christ's divinity and the mystery of the Incarnation and that it plays, down such things as the 'redemptive sacrifice of Christ and the teaching al:lthority of the Church. The bishops' directory, which had been in preparation for more than two years, is intended as the doctrinal basis for the new catechetical texts introduced at both. primary and secondary school levels. Critics of the texts claimed that the religious instruction given to young people is inadequate or a watered-down version of basic truths.

Says Reasonable Unrest Healthy LINCOLN (NC)-Student dissent can be healthy, and positive, but not when led by those who use a Club or a bomb to profess goals, a priest-educator told the opening Lincoln College convocation here in Illinois. "I feel a vast majority of student behavioral excesses reflect a restless and legitimate striving for new definitions of justice and for meaning," said Jesuit Father Carl M. Reinert, former president and now vice president at Creighton University in Omaha, Neb. Such ex,cesses, he said. "reflect the agitated state of our world and a desire to improve it." Consequently, he said, "responsible campus unrest can be healthy for all concerned." Father Reinert related this to predicted campus unrest this Fall, saying, "if the dialogue is rational and the actions responsible, these stirrings can whisper hope for the emergence of a greater unity among men." He cautioned, however, that "in their zeal to secure instant solutions to historic problems, some students have fallen behind leaders whose professed goals of peace and love are too often delivered via a club or a torch or a bomb. "There also are those," he added, "who regard our constitutional freedoms as licenses to assault, affront and offend those with whom they clisagree." , He advised students to avoid these leaders "like the plague" and added that "the province of responsibility is the domain of every man."

Advertisement Aids Foster Home Drive ,BALTIMORE (NC) - A ftlll page ad in a national magazine gave an added boost to the Associated Catholic Charities' foster home recruitment campaign, already off to a good start here. The ad was prepared as a public service by VanSant, Dugale and Co., Baltimore advertising agency, and will appear in Time magazine. Shelton Traule, Richard Haefner, Albert Shapiro and Edward Moore of the Baltimore agency were responsible for preparing the ad and arranging for its publication. The ad is part of a campaign which started I here in June to find more foster homes for children in the Baltimore archdiocese. Ralph Mirarchi, a Catholic Charities supervisor, said one goal is to find foster homes for 60 children now at Villa Marie and St. Vincent's Infant Home. Mirarchi said the campaign is the first here in six years. Since it was inaugurated, he said, his office has 'received about 70 inquiries, while 50 families have evidenced a continuing interest in foster homes.

Melissa Suggests Maki"n·g Four O'Clock Cookies By Joseph and Marilyn R?derick It is a rare event when I stay up past the late news and watch one of the nightly TV shows, so I probably see . about five such shows a year.

This week we have Jane Fonda , on another crusade, Truman Capote plugging a new book, George Jessel plugging Israel, a sprinkling of women's lib representatives, and occasionally, but rarely, a truly interesting personality with nQthing to sell but entertaining conversation, Desperate Networks From my limited perspectiye of five shows a year, several features standout: there are very few conversationalists avail: able. for a national viewing audience, most viewers do not mind being imposed upon to listen to sales pitches, and the networks are desperate to fill up dead time. Overexposure has made the whole thing a bore and the up· coming TV season gives us little reason for hope. The night shows are still with us, including a couple' of afternoon talk shows, the same old series are presented to us with minor variations and a few new faces, the specials will appear again but will most likely be sporadic and casually presented, the news wiII continue to be spotty and the commercials will remain with us.: ad nauseam. The only recourse is to return to reading for another Winter and hope the children do not get addicted to some outrageous prQgram that you will have to deprive them of before the season is over.

If you get hungry when you're making them, this is a good recipe because it only takes about 20 minutes to make them and they bake in about 2 minutes. So before you know it they're ready for you to eat. Yumm, yum.

Need International Control Over Wealth of- Seabed For the time being, the United NatiOns' efforts to secure agreement on the internationalization of the seabed have been adjourned. Deadlock emerged over the allocation of the riches of the continental shelf. The United States sought to allocate to international- control the areas it is right that they should. As consumers, we should pay the lying beyond a depth of 200 full cl?st-economic and socialmeters. But developing na- of what we consume.

Nor did the Soviet Union display any enthusiasm for a strong international authority·

By . BARBARA WARD

The danger now is that all the continental shelf will be allocated on a restrictixe national basis; land-locked developing nations will gain no benefit; and only the ocean depths, which is still incredibly difficult to develop, will remain as an area of international control. International Action Christian citizens should, however, urge their governments to take up the task of international control of' the sea's resources again as soon as possible before final ailocations' are made and before the oceans' riches are divided on a purely nationalIst basis, a basis which, every day, as the world can see, grows more and more irrational. What can any national government do, for instance, to stamp out lawlessness in the air? The hi-ja~king piracy of recent years is becoming more widespread and violent. The implication is that every local dispute can be injected, overnight, into the life stream of world movement. Airports and aircraft are extensions of the .local battlefield. Yet without close, uniform agreements and regulations observed by all governments-in. other words, without consistent international action and cooperation-the hi-jacking menace is incurable. Expensive Technology' Or take the issue of the kind of pollution in lakes and oceans which is the result of industrial or mining operations. In this area, technology can already offset a good deal of the damage technology does. More and more is 'being learned about the recycling of wastes to insure that they are not dumped, in a raw and damaging state, into fields and rivers, as though nature were one limitless. trash can for the filthy habits of mankind. But in case after case, the technology of anti-pollution is ·expensive. It adds to industrial costs. No doubt these will be passed on to the consumer. and

There is no sense in securing cheap paper picnic napkins if making the napkins has polluted the river in which we have hoped to have a swim after the picnic. Steady Contamination Bu.t there is a snag here. If anti-pOllution measures add to the costs of mining or industry, it follows that any enterprise, public or private, which evades regulation can produce a cheaper product and lick competitors who abide by the rules. These firms may operate in any co.mmunity since their' products enter into the world-wide 'network of commerce and' ex e change; No government can insure that, say, cheap oil, produced . without safeguardS in Khazakstan, does not undercut Esso in Europe. Only if all gov• ernments accept and impose pollution standards and, in addition, permit international inspec,tion, can industry put a complete and speedy end to the worsening contamination of our planet. -

I

Or take a par~icular 'and growing cause of pollution. Oil tankers on the high seas, far from inspection or regulation, bfte~ let out crude oil-to lighten. car· go or to permit cleaning opera· tions or through simple carelessness. ' .Each offense may be small (though it may be vast, as it is when t!lnker!? break up). But the cumulative effect of all· these leaks and slicks is a steady contamination of the surface of the seas. Only Solutloll Thor Heyerdahl, crossing. the Atlantic in his papyrus boat, found wide patch,es of- pollu.tion from one side of the ocean to the other. Yet scientists are beginning' to 'understand that a large part of the breathable air on' QUI' planet depends uponl the work of micro-organims 'on: the top of the ocean. Swamp them in oil and man's whole indispensable reserve of oxygen may . be in danger.

"Uptight" Christians A recent editorial commelltator said the present genel'atloll will .go down in history as the "Uptight Generation." Being uptight can be the outcome of uncertainty about what is happening around us; it's an anxious mistrust of present conditions because of the constant flux and change in our family life, society, the arts, and the Church. . More essentially, could not uptightness be the resulL of too much self-concern" self-interest, and self-unceitainty? A healthy practice to I remedy uptightness in our ChrIstian lives is to focus ourselves on the essentials of "what it means to be a Christian" found in the simplicity of the gospels: "By this will all men know you are my followers: if you love one another . . • • When you do a kindness to the least person, you do it to me." /! To paraphrase St. Paul: nothing we are, nothing we have or do is worth anything unless we are, have, and do, in love, in giving to others. God. will not ask us what we have made of our life, but what we did to help others in their lives. God is not impressed by the image we make for ourselves (as individuals, families, or society) in the eyes of the world, but what we did for the least, . the poor and suffering of the world. Our merit is not measured .by what great accomplishments we have made for ourselves, but .what we have accomplishe9 in relieving the anguish of others. Our stewardship is held accountable, not for what 'we have, but what we do with it. Louis Evely puts it plainly: "You have the same relationship with God as yqu have with your .neighbor."

Catholics Oppose Sex Education BUFFALO (NC)-A conservative organization of Catholic priests, nuns and laity renewfd its opposition to formal sex education in public schools. The organization, Credo. appealed to Catholic parents of children in public schools to oppose programs "that grossly interfere with the rights of parents to give sex instruction at their discretion and which violate the rights of parents who wish to keep sex tnstruction a personal, intimate and sacred matter strictly between parent and child in the moral and religious context provided by their church or ethical code." "In our judgement such programs directly affecting the spiritual, mental and emotional wei-

fare of both Catholic and HOl/Catholic childrpn represpnt a serious deviation from the proper moral and educational norms to be followed in the prudent sexual education of youth," the Credo statement said. "It is sadly evidf'nt that the Catholic and Christian understanding of sexuality IS being currently jeopardized by the alarming spread of aberrant sex education or fumily life education programs," the statement added, Credo suggested adoption of voluntary, after-school programs of parental education "which would affirm and reinforce parents in their rights and respon· sibilities in this dt'licate and sensitive area."

Fr. Mertz Marks '70th' Year as Jesuit CHICAGO (NC)-Father James J. Mertz, S.J., as beloved as fiction's famed "Mr. Chips" at Loyola University here, quietly will mark his 70th year as a Jesuit next Sunday. The 88-year-old priest has been at Loyola for 48 years, generally teaching Latin and Greek. He had two memorials on the campus .....;.. the $700,000 Italian Renaissance 'masterpiece, Madonna Della Strada Chapel built in the mid-1920s 'and the 19story men's residence, James J. Mertz Hall, erected in 1967. Fr. Mertz plans his anniversary celebration in the lakefront chapel. He inspired its construction and spearheaded the fundraising campaign for it. The venerable Jesuit has a dismal outlook on. college students of today. "There was a time when students listened to advice given by older, more experienced people," he said. "Now there's an unwill-

ingness to listen to others. They think they know it all." The biggest change in Catholicism during his lifetime, Father Mertz said is the new liturgy of the Mass in English. "Students seem to take it and are able to express tJ1emselves, what with guit,ars and all," he said. "But so many of them don't seem to respect God anymore, or the spirit of faith. And what seems to be the worst point is that so many of them have no confidence in themselves," he added. In contemporary education, Father. Mertz said, "there is too i much externalism; too much complacency, too ri1Uch satisfaction with the exterior of education without an attempt to get to the real cultural ideas:' Father Mertz said he had no I memorable setbacks in his career. If he could make one change ill society, Father Mertz said: "I'd like to change the objectives

people have in this life. I'd like to get people to try to understand each other better and to work more cooperatively."

Roy Innis, director of the Congress of Racial Equality, wrote in the Sept. 19 issue of the weekly Manhattan Tribune that "the Jews llJust not stand alone." ,"The taking of Jewish hos. tages, the holding' of innocent men, women and children merely because they worship in a synagogue, is a symbolic and frightening reminder of a disease which, too many people ignored in Germany and a reminder of the days when slave families were similarly separated." Innis added that for American blacks, "to ignore what happened, in Amman is to inaccurately acknowledge that injustice which does not touch the black man is not an injustice::

Continuous learning of many subjects and the application of what one knows can help men to learn to take a greater role in the community in, which they live. This is par~icularly true, when it comes to a matter of faith. For many, study of the faith ended with the Sacrament of Confirmation or graduation from a Catholic school or colIege.

find ourselves rushing in and out of Pope John's open windows like chipmunks storing nuts for the Winter. A month or' so ago I sat with the new Archbishop of Boston, Humberto Souza Medeiros, in his flower-surrounded house in Brownsville, Texas, Armed with tape recorder, sound man and photographer, I came to interview the Bishop about the work of the Church in the Rio Grande Valley. , Realistic Appraisal As we drove up we were surprised to see a horde of little kids with stringy hair and damp towels come squealing out the front door.of the Bishop's house. For a minute I was afraid we had the wroJlg address. Safely inside the cool house, the softspoken sister who greeted us pointed to the living room and we tramped right in and sat in the good chairs.. Our expected 20-minute interview with a busy Bishop turned into a "rap session" that moved from living room to garden to kitchen table and it continued Jong after the tape ran out. , My notes on the Bishop's remarks as I read them over afterward were full of straight-forward Biblical wisdom, anecdotes about farm workers and migrant camps that' sounded strangely authentic, and a realistic appraisal that supporting the poor and dispossessed would never cause contributions to flow into diocesan coffers. Pilgrim Churcli My purpose in sharing this is not to mythologize Bishop Medeiros-that would be more of , th.at oppressive ecclesiastical seriousness. We spent the afternoon talking ahout Jesus, how to help farm workers secure their rights, and preaching the Gospel. But there was no apparent anxiety abolJt "the Church"-it~ image, its structure, its administration, its reform, its right, center or left. The unstated but underlying assumption of the conversation seemed to be that if we do the working and living and the celebrating, God will probably be able to oversee whatever reform the Church needs.

cible of Vatican'II and everyday life. Boston-bound Bishop,Medeiros and the recent unobstrl.1sive but effective wo~k of. the ~ish­ op's Committee Qn Farm Labor in California may be good signs . that the Church ',tan get things done without talking itself quite so seriously. 'It may be that" ,some are' becoming accustomed to the idea . that Catholics share'the'life:giving Spirit with all men and so we can relax a bit. If we can continue to pare down the apparatus of post-Conciliar Christianity, we may find that a: pilgrim Church offers decreased bookkeeping and increased mobility. Center Needed It may be also that th{s more relaxed climate in the Church is right for serious collegial study. Somewhere, perhaps, in some little-used retreat hou,se or monastery, the U.S. Catholic Church should have' a Center For the Study of the Future of the ChurCh. Recently the renowned Center for the Study of Democratic' Institutions at Santa Barbara, Calif;, published in its maga~ine a draft of an update!i Constitution for the United States. The accompanying articles make it clear that this document is no journalistic meandering. The draft Constitution is the result of six years of study and' discussion under the direction, of. Rexford Guy Tugwell supported by the Center. Such a Center, many believe, is imperative for the Church in the United States. Our rapidly' d)mini~~ing crop of first-r:ate theolog'ians is overworked' with teaching load~ and jet-set. lecture tours. Books and maga'~ine articles often suffer from lacK of interdisciplinary dialogue and .quiet reflection., Rarely can' Bishops, theologians, pastoral 'experts, businessmen come together except on an ad hoc basis. Last May, a three-day session was held under the auspices of the Catholic Theologicai Society and the U.S. Catholic Conference's Urban Task Force. The sessions, lasting. far into the night, were exciting and helpful. Perhaps for the first time: in the United States, Cathqlic Church top theologians, urban activists, clergy and social scientists sat down to carefully 4isciplined reflection on the contemporary mission of the ChurFh. The results are tentative but hopeful. A report will soon: be available in .a paperback book . published by FIDES ("Metropolis: Christian Presence and Responsibility," $1.25). . The Church badly needs a focus for the future. It would be a comparatively easy task to set up such a theological Rand Corporation. Perhaps the Natiottal Conference of Bishops, the !':lational Federation of, Pries,ts' Councils, the Catholic Theologic::al Society of America and the Con-

ters'here will consist of plenary sessions in the mornings, 'workshops in the afternoon and information, sector and directors meetings in the evenings. Other topics slated to be COIlsidered include mixed marriages, the 1971 Synod of Bishops in Rome and CCC statements.

When Chuck Sousa eal'l1ed varsity letters in football and baseball at Bishop Stang High School, it was only natural to assume that.he would continue the trend in college. Sure enough, 'fOllowing his graduation from the North Dartmouth school in 1968, he enrolled in a small parochial college in St. Leo, Florida. {-laving no football program at St. Leo's, Sousa developed all of his time to the diamond sport. It was. important that he did well. ' Chuck had a "conditional scholarship" within his grasp * * * the condition promising financial assistance if he was able to make the grade. 'Following a fine freshman campaign, Sousa proved his worth with a banner sophomore addition to leading season. . -

Bishop Stang. I The Red Raiders from Barnstable will open their 1970 ~ea­ son this week hopeful of turning back a tough Bourne eleven. The Canalmen were edged 6-0 last week by Msgr. Coyle High: of Ta'unton. However, the strong showing- by Bourne against the Bristol County League contender is an indication that Coach Russ Burns' forces are a power to. be reckoned with. The loop contest should be a baromejer of both teams' fate in the conference race.

Dartmouth Seeks to Continue Trend Like~ise, Coach Kevin Cadieux is readying his Blue Devils knowing a victory is, esssential if they are to' stay in contention. The clubs fought to a 6-6 tie a year ago and are expected to engage in another close contest. this season. Coach Carlin Lynch's Dartmouth contingent has to be considered a serious contender in view of its impressive 20-0 open; ing day win over Somerset. The Indians have avenged last season's loss to the reigning Narry League champions and are hopeful of continuing the trend against Slocum Road rival Bishop ·Stang. Consecutive victories for Dartmouth may just give the Lynchmen enough momentum to go all the way. The eyes of all Bristol County League followers will be focused on the results of two important loop contests slated for Saturday. In the first contest Attleboro plays at New Bedford and in the second Bishop Feehan High of Attleboro wiILbe in Fall River to meet the Durfee High HIlltoppers. Both Attleboro and New Bedford have been rated as the circuit's foremost clubs. Saturday's contest will determine whose following will be able to continue boasting. Meanwhile, Coyl~ sits in the wings ready. to prove it deserves first place billing. Coach Jim Cassidy's Jewelers were idle last week while the Whalers were' being shocked 31-0 by Brockton. However, Coach Joe Bettencourt will have his Crimson and White ready for this all important contest. Coyle will have its chance a week from Saturday when its plays New Bedford.

Coach Paul O'Boy's Shamrocks who were impressive in' their 13-0 win over Taunton are out to prove that their share, of the loop title will have to' be taken away from them on the gridiron, not in the newspap~rs. Likewise, Coach Don Montie's Red and Black, rated as one of the league's weaker sisters in preseason polls, completely demolished Christopher Columbus' High 32-0 last week causing prognosticators to take another look at Durfee's future.

Bedford Vocational rounding out the County schedule. Vocational lost to Old Rochester of Matta-poisett 36-12 last Saturday. Only one league contest is scheduled in the Narry League Saturday, with Old Rochester meeting Dighton-Rehoboth. Both clubs have been named as threats to Somerset in the race for league honors. In non-league action Somerset is at Portsmouth, R. I., Seekonk at Sharon and Westboro will be in Swansea to take on Case.

CHUCK SOUSA his team in hitting with a .352 average, he led or shared the team leadership in doubles (7), triples (2), homeruns (I), runs batted in (20) and bases on balls (24) and was the leading defensive player with a .985 fielding percentage at first base. The credentials earned Sousa an honorable mention berth in the District 'III College Dh'ision or the NCAA. It was only natural that when the Somerset native returned home for the Summer vacation, he was . .in ,. a happy' frame of· mind. He was more plea!>ed when he learned of his appointment to a position in the sewer construction department of the Town of Somerset. . Chuck had been employed by the town the previous Summer but had tried, unsuccessfully, to land, a post ,with the' sewer department. But the glee turned to gloom in a short seven days. While repairing a gas leak !n

Di~mond one of the town's drainage sites, Sousa was knocked unconscious by the sudden explosion. When he came to, his eyelids were sealed tight, his face racked with pain, and his shirt was engulfed by flames. For nine days; Chuck remained a patient at Union Hospital in . Fail River. The once bright fu-' ture was suddenly clouded with uncertainties. Sousa received first and second degree burns above his neck and it was feared that he either would be disfigured or suffer permanent eye damage. But luck was with the Somerset athlete. There was no disfig· uration and upon the examination of an eye doctor it was revealed that the vision was normal. Chuck wasn't as optimistic,' however. Would he still be able to see well enough to hit a baseball? A brief· stint in the batting cage held the answer. "I saw the ball real well," said the physical education major after a few swings in the Florida sun. , St. Leo's begins training for the 1971 season in February and, with· renewed confidence, Sousa hopes to pick up right where he left off a year ago. , Chuck is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence Sousa, 114 Banville Ave., Somerset and is'lil communicant of St. Thomas More Parish. • "r

Sees Expa nsion Conpnued from Pag~ One Knights of Columbus, BouI'J Member of the Texas Catholic Conference and na tion representation as a member of the Department of International Affairs of the USCCC, a member: of the USCC Department for Latin America and a member of the Commission on Doctrine, aisu sponsored by the NCCB. Within the Diocese of Brownsville, Bishop Medeiros founded and published The Valley Catholic Witness, a tabloid-sized, biweekly newspaper that refuses paid advertising and has an aud· dited circulation of some 55,000 copies. Bishop Medeiros subsi· dized the newspaper's circulation, with the only paid subscribers making free-will donations. In addition, he founded the now-nationally recognized Visitors for Christ Movement, Inc., a laity-geared organization that serves as a parish priest's constant contact with his parishioners, performing such valuable tasks as census-taking, CCD enrollme'nt, 'aged and ill visitation, financial commitment and general service to the Church through voluntary donations of time and ability. As the undisputed father of the Visitors for Christ, Bishop Medeiros has seen his movement gain national respect and attention, spreading the "loving-through-doing" message from home-to-home and neighbor-to-neighbor. Among Bishop Medeiros' initial tasks when he assumed leadership of the Diocese of Brownsville was a diocesan census which revealed more than 260,000 Catholics in the four-county area. He also has established the Parish-Diocesan Advisoty Assembly, which meets every two years and encompasses all lay activities of a parish nature into a cohesive diocesan program; incorported Catholic Charities along with the Social Action and Rural Life Development programs and consofidated the parochial schools. Another major development has been the growth of the CCD program, which had less than 12,000 students in 1966 and has more than 35,000 enrolled today, plus a full course of teacher training and executive board instruction. Retreats, Cursillos Bishop Medeir-os also has lent particular emphasis to the Retreat, Cursillo and Better World Movement, increasing annual at· tendance and participation by a~ much as 50 per cent. Erudite and multi-lingual, Bishop Medeiros is a much-asked public speaker and his ecumencal talks have been particularly popular in Texas. His annual Easter and Christmas messages in English and Spanish are broadcast, televised and reprinted with acclaim in the secular news media. Also, his annual "press party" is always a sell-out with lively exchanges between the Bishop and the news gatherers.
