Pope Bids Theologians 'Defend People of God' VATICAN, CITY (NC)-Pope Paul VI opened the inaugural meeting of the Holy See's International Theological Commission with an appeal to its 30 members to "defend the People of God from the numerous, excessive and pressing errors that are assailing the divine deposit of truth." He declared that the "authority ana security" of the Church's teaching office-"magisterium"--derive from Christ Himself and are "essential for the government, stability, peace and unity of God's Church." The Pope warned: "He who refuses it or attacks it assails the one true Church, and therefore incurs a grave debt in regard to the souls that have the faith or are seeking it, and is responsible before God's judgment." The Theological Commission was set up at the instance of the first Synod of Bishops, which met in Autumn 1967, to be a clearinghouse of theological information and trends and to act as a point of contact between wotking theologians and the Holy See. The Pope pointed to two goals for the commission besides that of defending the People of God from the assaults of error: (1) "finding in the frimness of our faith the mysterious secret of a persuasive language for ecumenical dialogue intended to reestablish in the same faith and in the same charity perfect and happy communion with the brothers still separated from us; (2) "reviving our kerygmatic pedagogy, our ability to present the message of divine revelation and human salvati'on with the authenticity that certainly sur· passes the capacities of intelligence and; all the' more so, the attitudes of modern man, along with clarity of speech, freshness of style and ardor of charity, so that the Church's apostolate in the modern world may today more than ever beam forth its light of truth, beauty and certainty. The Pope was at pains to disown any notion of theology as a monolithic science admitting no diversity. He said he "willing. ly" admits "the development and variety of theological sciences."

Practical Collegiality Bishops Synod Topic That the Bishops are essentially united to Rome •.. that the Pope alone presides over all bishops . . . that all bishops share a universal duty in governing the Church •.. these are undisputed facts. But HOW • . • this is the work facing the world's bishops as their representatives come to Rome to take part in the Bishops' Synod which opens Saturday.

Closer Contact

No Usurpation

Cardinal Danielou

Archbishop Zoghbi

Jean Cardinal Danielou, S.J., in .an interview for Informations Catholiques Internationales, stressed the need for close contact between the Bishops' Conferences and the Roman Curia, the Church's administrative ofoffices. The French Cardinal said the importance of the synod derives from collegiality, and he then discussed what he said was existing confusion concerning that term. ;'Some," he said, "tend to maintain that the (Second Vatican) Council constituted a veritable revolution in the very concept of the Church, destined to undermine at its base the hierarchical structure. Vatican II undoubtedly put' particular emphasis on the reality of the people of God and on the fundamental equality of all the baptized; but that does not signify that the 'hierarchy has less importance than in the past. It is necessary to emphasize, on the contrary, that if the council spoke of the people of God in the terms that we are familiar with, lit nevertheless confirmed the teaching of the First Vatican Council (1869-70) for which the role, of the sovereign pontiff is constitutive of the Church such as Christ founded it. If one does not accept that, one is no longer speaking of the Church." Cardinal Danielou went on to say that anyone "who finds it inadmissible that the pope should act alone and who afTurn to Page Twelve

Very Often News Features Controversial on Religion KING OF PRUSSIA (NC)-John Cardinal Krol of Philadelphia gave his views of the current popularity of religion in the news.

M,elkite-rite Archbishop Elias Zoghbi of Baalbel<, Lebanon, in an interview in the same Informations Catholiques Internationales expressed the resentment of Eastern-rite Catholics for what they regard as the usurpation of the authority of their patriarchates by the Vatican Congregation for Eastern-rite Churches. Archbishop Zoghbi made an extended plea for diminishing authority on the part of the Vatican Congregation for Eastern-rite Churches and for greater authority for the Eastern· rite patriarchates. ' "The ordinary government of the churches of the East," the archbishop said, "has always CARDINAL DANIELOU, S.J. been exercised, since Christian antiquity, in the patriarchal synod.

Diocesan School Office's 'Big Red Book' Embodies ~4ll Policies in One Volume By Patricia McGowan Every school in the Fall River Diocese now has been issued a book that "will never be completed." The "book," a loose leaf binder that can easily be kept up to date, details the policies and by-laws and adniinistrative regulations to be followed by all schools in the diocese as a means of standardization. It is a result of more than three years work by administrative and teaching personnel and members of the diocesan school board. What does it cover?

Marriage Facts Emerge

OSWEGO (NC) - When Catholics and Protestants intermarry, Protestant 'women are most likely to change their' religion according to a sociologist at State University of New York College at Oswego. The trend emerged from a study of 2,500 marriages by W. Seward Salisbury, in which 400 were Catholic-Protestant mixed religious marriages. Salisbury reported that the study found Protestants convert at ~ higher rate than Catholics, and Protestant women convert more often than Protestant men. "Protestant men do not convert at a significantly higher rate than Catholic men," said Salisbury, "nor do Catholic women convert at a higher rate than Catholic men." He said the study also showed that when religiously mixed marriages involve spouses from dif· ferent social classes, conversion will be in the direction of the spouse of higher social status.

are to contain no more than 40 students per class. "Secondary school classes are to be geared in size to the type of material being presented. New teaching methods demand great ,variety in class size, but class size should be realistically considered in the, light of these methods." These are among the policies and reguiations now in effect in all diocesan schools. Some of the regulations date back as far as 1948 or before. Others are new innovations. In any case, now all are gathered together in one easily accessible volume which can be kept up to date m~rely by removing one loose leaf page and inserting another. Even more important, all schools of the diocese now have the same regulations to help them function as 'a team - an important step forward in an era when Catholic schools are facing so many changes and so many challenges to survival.

'Bingo' Veto SPRINGFIELD (NC) - Gov. Richard B. Ogilvie has vetoed a bill which would have legalized bingo games conducted by charitable, religious and fraternal organizations in Illinois. He took the action on advice of Atty. Gen. William J. Scott who reminded the governor that the Illinois Constitution prohibits lotteries or gift enterprises for any purpose.

GREENWICH (NC)-The pol· icy-making Episcopal Church executive council, faced with both support and fears about a measure to raise at least $200,000 which will probably go to the controversial Black EconQmic Development Conference, has taken several major steps' to move the funding ahead. The council, holding its quarterly meeting at Seabury House, the Episcopal national conference center here in Connecticut, sought to spell out how the money for, Il>lack development will be raised. It also heard the executive officer of the National Committee for Black Churchmen, the immediate recipient of the allocation, give assurances that the NCBC expected to serve as a conduit for the funds.

DAYTON (NC) African Catholics resent the actions of Westerners aimed at extending to the continent a campaign for the abolition of priestly celibacy, Father Theo Van Asten, W.F., superior general of the White Fathers, said here. The head of the 3,667-member society devoted exclusively to missionary work in Africa, said celibacy in the Church in Africa presents no serious problems. There is no' "vocation crisis" in Africa, where vocations are increasing, he stressed. The White Fathers, ,also known as the Missionaries of Africa, work in 60 dioceses of Africa. As part of their apostolate, they operate eight major seminaries for African diocesan clergy. Father Van Asten said the White Fathers now are recruiting members among Africans. The community has always placed stress on the formation of African clergy and the opening of the White .Fathers to Africans themselves is regarded as a logical development. "The Church in Africa has reached a new stage of maturity," he said. African priests in the White Fathers will be missionaries to other African nations, he added.

To Poor Parishes NEWARK (NC) - In the six months since Archbishop Thomas A. Boland asked the more solvent parishes of the Newark archdiocese to aid urban parishes, more than $50,000 in special assistance has been distributed. Archbishop Boland made his appeal last March 30, asking those who could afford to do so to underdwrite the cost of maintenance, individual classrooms, a. teacher or some other expense. His appeal was directed to individuals as well as parishes. Revealing the extent of the assistance, Archbishop Boland said the $50,000 represented the amount sent to the chancery office for disbursement. He said the ar<;hdiocese contributed $10,000 of its own from general funds and that additional monies went directly. from one parish to another.

Church Needs Communications Media for Worldwide Action OTTAWA (NC)-At the par· ish, diocesan, national, continental and international levels the Church must develop an awareness and use of communications media "in the whole range of the apostolate." A worldwide "pastoral action" through the media is the "im· mense undertaking" visualized by the man in Rome in charge of implementing it, Bishop Augustine Ferrari-Toniolo, pro president of the Pontifical Commission for Social Communications. "The message (of the Church) must not only be read but also seen, must not be static but mobile; the reasoning must not only be a-priori only, but the truth must be seen to emerge from reflection expressed in audio-visual terms," he told an audience at Saint Paul University here. "Efforts must be made· to reach contemporary man whereever he is found, where he lives, thinks, hears and sees." Admitting the credibility gap and some structural difficulties in moving complete information quickly within the Church, he said there are obstacles to be overcome. Credlblllty Gap "There is some distrust of information that emanates from official sources; people doubt its accuracy and completeness. This is also true of ecclesiastical sources. Confidence has to be built up." It involves overcoming the credibility gap, establishing a free flow of complete information within the Church, training and assisting personnel in the mass media (and developing Church facilities where. necessary), assisting laymen and clergy to develop "a critical faculty" for evaluating communications through the media. It involves training leaders of discussion groups, clergy and teachers in the use of the media for cathechetics, liturgy, adult education, social action and every other aspect of Church ac· tivity. "Perhaps, these days, it is better if information comes from sources that are not too closely bound to the hierarchy, (since) ecclesiastical authority no less than any other authority is sus-

pect in the eyes of many of our contemporaries," he said. As for inforamtion within the Church, he said: "A way must be found to overcome the tension that exists between hierarchical structures and the liberty of information and expression within the Church, accepting construc· tive criticism. "This is not a diminution of authority; rather, it· should be seen as objective information that corrects inaccuracies and supplements deficiencies in the flow of news. "Thus, both the internal and external dialogue of the Church will be rendered more' construe· tive, This circulation of news is a vital necessity," . , Communication should 'be a two-way flow of information and opinion, . Bishop Ferrari-Toniolo quoted Pope Paul VI: "What is needed is a circulation of news that does not go one way only, but comes from the Christians spread throughout te world, conveying their difficulties and anxieties certainly, but also reveal· ing their faith and positive initiatives,"

Continued from Page One There is no rivalry between theological science and ecclesiastical authority. Rather, theology and the Church's magisteriurn both serve revealed truth by bringing it "diverse but converging support, the Pope asserted.· The Pope further protested his "intention to recognize the laws and exigencies that belong to your studies, that is, to respect that freedom of expression of theological science and of research called for by its development. He denied any rivalry between "the two primacies, that of science and that of authority," and asserted the undivided primacy of revealed truth to which theol. ogy and the magisterium each brings its own kind of support. To be a member of such a commission does not "condition and restrict the field of your studies as to impede their lawful investigations and logical formulations," he insisted. Planned Work The theologians were to form its constitution and manner of work (outlined in a paper by Msgr. Gerard Philips of Louvain University) and tackle a report on a panorama of the most pressing doctrinal problems (submitted by Fr. Karl Rahner, a German dogmatic theologian). All the members had received the reports beforehan and had formally commented on each before retiring on the outskirts of Rome to begin their work.

Permits Cardinal ,To Attend Synod BONN (NC)-The Polish government has granted permission for Stefan Cardinal Wyszynski of Warsaw to leave Poland to attend the Synod of Bishops in Rome. In 1967, the Polish government refused to allow the cardinal to attend the synod that year because of what it called his disloyalty, "hot-headedness" and meddli,ng in foreign policy. A paper reflecting government policy charged at that time that the cardinal had overstepped his Church privileges by attempting to disturb the friendly atmosphere of Polish·French talks during the visit of the then French President Charles - de Gaulle to Poland. Four other prelates designated represent the Polish hierarchy at the 1967 synod were given passports to travel to Rome, but, in an act of solidarity with C!lrdinal Wyszynski, they did not attend the sessions either. Cardinal Wyszynski is attending the synod as president of the Polish bishops' conference. Accompanying him are Karol Cardinal Wojtyla of Krakow, a member of the synod at the invitation of Pope Paul VI; Archbishop Antoni Baraniak, S.D.B., ·of Poznan; Archbishop Boleslaw Kominek, apostolic administrator of the central part of the archdiocese of Wroclaw; and another prelate.

Asserts Problem of Poverty Is Special Concern of Church HOUSTON (NC)-Rep. Henry B. Gonzalez of Texas told delegates attending the national convention of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul that it is appropriate for the Church to be concerned about the plight of the poor because "poverty afflicts the spirit just· as surely as it afflicts the body." He said everyone should be concerned about the reasons why some people are more poor than others. Gonzalez cited lack of education and plenty of discrimination as two of those reasons. "If lack of education keeps these people from getting jobs," he said, "dishimination keeps them from advancing." The Texas congressman emphasized that "we must be concerned with the ills of mankind, not just some of mankind," and that this concern must create action. "Concern alone feeds no hungry stomach; food satisfies hunger, and action obtains justice," he said. Gonzalez said, however, that there "is a curious frustration, 0:< ;' ,~ so that with the best of intention and the strongest of conviction, we seem to be moving ahead less and less." He expressed his belief that "much of social progress depends on political action." "This .society," Gonzalez explained, "exists not only in the spiritual world, but in the temporal world. The problems of the poor are your special concern. So, too, you must be concerned by the political problems that affect the poor, for these problems affect our' ability to obtain progress and justice."

"When all is said and done," he added, "I hope that we can each of us .be counted among those whose concern is not one man, but all of mankind." In other convention business the Vincentians elected Denver attorney T. Raber Taylor to lead them. He succeeds George E. Heneghan, who served as pres· ident for 1I years.

Continued' from Page' One to the one priest who is defiant, who wants his own kind of church, who' attempts marriage or who moves underground." "The honest journalist readily admits," Cardinal Krol declared, "that it is his task to report news and not to write the annals of church activity., There are some journalists whose bent for ·news tempts them to highlight the bizarre, the rare and even to report gossip. In shor!, 'our conception of the Church,in Holland or even of the Church in our country IS derived from the mass media reports, which feature the abnormal rather than the normal." But, the cardinal said, "we still come down to the undeniable fact that there have been unprecedented and (Iisedifying happenings' in the Church since the council." No Panic He emphasized that the disedi· fying happenings occurred after the council but not because of it, and added there is no cause for panic. "There are some who, out of sheer fascination for change, are developing their own concept of ,the council and of what the Church should be. There are some who aodvocate change as a permanent' state in the Church. They fear' the attainment of certain conciliar goals because they may put an end to ungoverned change. They desire destruction rather than reform. Some of them talk of liberation, but they will not listen to' other views. They advocate dialogue, but their approach is harsh, bru· tal," he said. Politics ,"They resort to mass meet· ings, serisationalized demp.n~.t1p.­ tions and exaggerated news conferences, often 'for ·tlie 'purpose of placing the other side in an unfavorable light," the Cardinal asserted. , "There are some who, adopting the language of politics, are anxious to be aligned with. what they term the progressive of the conservative sides of the council. They seem to ignore the fact that 15 of the council documents were approved with less than 10 ** * dissenting votes (out of 2,500)," he said.

Capuchins Start TV Station In Brazil PORTO ALEGRE (NC) -

The first Catholic television station in Brazil has been inaugurated by the Capuchin Fathers. Called TV Difusora, the new station will be the first outlet in the country for broadcasting TV shows in color. There are already three TV channels here in this city of a million inhabitants. The Capuchins' will be open to the use of communications professionals who want to work independently of ideological or economic groups. Many wellknown television persons-journalists, commentators and technicians-have accepted the station's offer to use "its facilities for independent work. The Capuchins also sponsor a radio station here called Radio Difusora. Announcement of the new TV station has served to boost the Capuchins' radio station from eighth to third place in audience rating among the city's 10 radio outlets. The ratings were disclosed by the Public Opinion Research Institute. The Capuchins also publish a paper, Correio Riorgrandense, which serves the southern regions of Brazil. There are 140 Catholic radio stations in operation throughout Brazil with i~s population of 90 million.

ROCKVILLE CENTRE (NC~ Black history will be brought into every Catholic elementary school in Nassau and Suffolk Counties through the joint efforts of the Long island Catholic, newspaper of the Rockville Centre diocese, and the diocesan department of education.

ST. LOUIS (NC)-A' preliminary injunction barring militant demonstrators from entering St. Louis cathedral here was issued by a U. S. District Judge. The injunction replaces a temporary restraining order issued in July. The court scheduled a hearing for Dec. 15 to consider whether the local militant demonstrators should be barred permanently from the cathedral. Judge James '~. Meredith, in issuing the injunction, said that the militants, members of a group called ACTION, "have interrupted the religious services at the cathedral to such an extent that they have denied the plaintiffs of their rights to hold property and to have it protected." The judge noted that the federal court was competent to handle the matter, and cited Reconstruction era federal statutes dating from 1866" 1870 and 1871, regarding disruption of religious services. "These sections," Judge Meredith said "were designed to prevent racial discrimination performed under color of state law or by groups such as the Ku Klux Klan operating entirely outside of the law. "While it is obvious that these statutes were passed primarily to ensure the rights of nonwhites," the laws can also apply to whites, Judge' Meredith stated. Resume Visits "The temporary injunction applies to ACTION and to Black Liberation Front demonstrators, although the BLF had visited only non-Catholic churches in the area. After a brief interruption in their series of "Black Sundays" demonstrations instituted this Summer, ACTION members resumed church visitations when they visited Corpus Christi par-

I have to admit to being one of these adults. For, the, past- six months or so I have been tak'ing guitar lessons. I started innocently enough by buying Meryl an inexpensive guitar for her birthday. This proved too difficult for her, so we borrowed a mandolin and she began taking lessons in addition to her regular piano lessons. , Well, it wasn't long before I began plunking away at the guitar in the hope that I could accompany Meryl with simple chords. One thing led to another and music lessons were the end' result. Relaxing Pursuit At this point Meryl and I play mean renditions of Down In The ,Valley, Cowboy Jack, Bicycle Built For Two, and Spanish Serenade. Meryl plays the melody and I play the accompaniment. This is no mean accomplishment, ,considering that when I was a boy a good-hearted music teacher gave up on me in disgust. If I keep up the good work for 10 more years, I may reach the point where I can play the melody and Meryl can play the acc')mpaniment. Actually, playing the guitar, or 'ny music instrument is a great I ' f .f U,Iumd..d q~t9.~S,)~r.~"re.~; .c,.,elj.,_~ ommet' ling that overweight and anxiety ridden patients take up an instrument rather than take out a prescription for tranquilizers. I suppose the greatest advantage to playing an instrument when you are beyond the point when you can take it seriously is that you have no parents harp-' ing a~ you t( practice and no one saying th t you will thank them some day for having forced you to play. ' Instructors tend to be lenient because they know you will stick with it only long enough to buy an instrument you can't afford (adults are very prone to, blame their instruments for the unmelodius sounds which emerge as a result of their playing) and you will soon grow tired, of the regimen ,required to learn to play an instrument well. " At any rate, I can now appreci: ate the frustration 'the children go through in their weekly lessons and the discipline necessary to sit down and practice., And I can also appreciate the necessity of constant daily practice because without it the fingers grow stale surprisingly quickly. In my own case, missing a day or two is a disaster and if I am ever to get to Sidewalks of New York Qr Sweet Rosie O'Grady I can't afford to miss a day.

80,000 Protest Ban on Prayer

, By Mariiyn Roderick "School days, school days, dear old golden rule days"

WASHINGTON (NC)-Senate Minority Leader Hugh Scott of Pennsylvania was presented with a 25-pound petition containing the signatures of 80,000 Pennsylvanians protesting against the' prohibition of prayer and Bible readings in schools. Mrs. George J. Thacik, president of the Pennsylania Council of Republican Women, presented the petition to Sen. Scott during the annual convention here of the National Federation of Republican Women. The petition, besides protesting against the prohibition of school prayers also opposed legislation that would remove: chaplains from the armed forces; the "In God We Trust" slogan from U.S. currency, or the words "under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag.

Religious Communities Plan, to Meet Needs路 Of Aging Sisters LOUISVILLE (NC) - Sisters, too, wear out. . The extent of the sometimementioned -but seldom-surveyed problem of aging nuns is shown by retirement figure~ for three communities whi'cn "nave their headquarters in the Louisville archdiocese. ' The figures are awesome. And they reflect more than 'a regional phenomenon. Nor are they caused by any specific problems within the communities. In short, they may be an ali-too-typical indicator of national trends. For example, the three communities involved, Sisters of Charity of Nazareth, Sisters' of Loretto and Ursuline Sisters of Louisville, are' Widespread in their scope of service. Sisters from the three communities serve in two dozen states from coast to coast. Wh~t then, do they show for themselves and perhaps for the nation? Statistics tell ,the story. The three communities have a total membership of 2,900. Some 480 nuns, 16 per路 cent of the total now are retired.

But this is only part of the story, perhaps the smaller part. The years immediately ahead promise even greater numbers of nuns whose laQors must end. Examples, .as furnished by officials. are: Second Careers The Sisters of Loretto have 157 retired members, but an additional 100 nuns are more than 65 and still working. In another decade, the total number of retired Sisters of Loretto will reach 250 to 300.

The Sisters of Charity of Nazareth can also count on a retiremeint surge - half of its some 1,400 members are 54 years of age or older. The Ursuline Sisters have 113 of its 532 members on the retired list. Some 170 more are expected to retire in the next decade. All three of the communities are taking steps to meet the needs of their aging Sisters.

Have largest Parish, Fewest Parishioners ST.' PAUL (NC)-An Oblate missionary from St. Michael. Minn., who recently returned from Greenland, described himself and his two fellow missionaries as working in what is prob路 ably the "largest parish in the world with the fewest parishioners." Father Paul Marx, O.M.I., said Catholics in Greenland number about 50 out of some 40,000 people on the island, which, in contrast to its name, is covered with ice. The priest, who was ordained in 1955, sees a dual purpose for the Catholic Church in the predominantly Evangelical Lutheran country-to "give witness to the presence Of tM Church," and' to work in the direction of unity with the Christian religions already there.

Segregation Bad, Separation- Good

THE ANCHORThurs., Oct. 9, 1969

DAYTON (NC) - Segregation is "harmful" but separatism is "a very healthy impulse," according to Julian Bond, . The 29-year-old black state legislator from Georgia dre~ a distinction between segreatIOn and separatism in a press conference following a talk at the University of Dayton. Supporting the concept of separatism among blacks and oth-ers, he said "separatism to me is what happens when you have Italian-Americans celebrating Columbus Day." • "They are engaging in their separatism tendencies to remem/Jer their Italian heritage, to celebrate it, to be very proud of it, as they should be. The same thing happens when Irish-Americ~ns celebrate St. Patrick's, Day." . But, he added, the issue of segregation appears "when somebody who is Irish-American says to somebody who is ItalianAmerican 'We don't want any Italian-Americans here.''' In his talk Bond was sharply critical of what he said was the Nixon administration's policy of postponing school desegregation in some areas of the South, and opposing busing to correct racial imbalance in ,schools. " .

No Usurpation Continued from Page One ",This Roman dicastery continues to submit to its approval, .prior or subsequent, t~e election ·of our bishops; it demes to our patriarc~ and.'to his syno~ any jurispictioil over our ~mlgrant , faithful who today constitute the major part of our community; it suffices that it oppose its veto to any decision whatever comiT!g from the patriarchal synod. In order to render that decision null and ineffective. Nothing important, in fact, which affects the Eastern-rite Catholic Churches, can be decided witout the approval of this congregation." Archbishop Zoghbi went on to complain that the very existence of ,patriarchaf rule is being threatened by the congregation, since the patriarchs, ex-officio members of the congregation, are "drowned in a majority of other members, almost all foreigners and of the Latin rite. It is thus that when this congregation holds a plenary assembly to decide an affair that concerns exclusively one or another patriarchate, the competent patriarchal synod is ignored and the patriarch responsible for that patriarchate votes as one vote against 30 or 40, in a matt-er that depends on...him and ,his bishops." After noting that the Western members of the congregation are "several times more numerous than the patriarchs and risk,be· .fore long, with their contingent of consultors, and officials, approaching the number of all the Eastern-rite Catholic bishaps," Archbishop Zoghbi asked: "Why must so many eminent personages of the Latin world, : of all races and all cultures-;-except .ours-be mobilized, alerted so to speak, to be' concerned. with our Churches, as if we were absent or minors?" Archbishop Zoghbi said the Congregation for Eastern-rite Churches reminds Eastern-rite Catholics of the "Ministry for the Colonies" and does not corre· spond either to their asporations or to the wishes or the explicit will of Vatican II, "which is only recalling the constant tradition of the Churches of the East when it says: 'The patriarchs, with their synods, constitute the higher instance for all the affairs of the patriarchate.' " He continued: "Like the Latin bishops' conferences, our synods can decide nothing definitive. All is subject to revision and approval. With the result that we are within our rights in asking ourselves if the patriarchal· synod and the bishops' conference are not, definitively and essentially, study clubs and consultative organisms." After noting that the Synod of Bishops is only a consultative organism and that its members had more than once been reminded of that fact, Archbishop Zoghbi stated: "We are therefore, after Vatican II, in the presence of a type of collegiality not' at all collegial, where the bishops and, with them, the 'entire Church are reduced to the role of. consultors, the destiny of) the Church remaining effectively, under the vigilant and moderating eye of the Pope, confided to the Roman dicasteries." The archbishop concluded by asking: "Will it b-e necessary to wait for the next council in order to pass in fact from the consultative Church to the collegial Church?"

As one priest put it: "I look at retirement as a diffet,ent phase of my life-one that is; interesting, fruitful, productive and priestly." , Few, however, said that the change came without a wrench, because almost an of them had been asked to step aside lifter the diocesan Senate of Priests drew up a retirement progtam approved by Archbishop Thomas A. Boland. ' "You expected l:hat you'd die with your boots· on," said 6ne as he reflected on the jolt :by. older pastors who had not prepared for retirement. i Mandatory at 75 I Under the diocesan program, pastors may continue to live I in the parish rectory where t~ey served, if they wlish· to do so, and 13 are doing so.

Prelate Protests Eviction Threat TELLICHERRY (NC)-Bishop Sebastian Valloppilly of Tellicherry has app~aled to India's government leaders on behalf of nearly 2,000 peasant families threatened with eviction from their farms. .The cabled appeal to President V.V. Giri, Prime Minister Indira Gandhi and officials of the Madras and Kerala state governments followed a visit by the bishop to a 10,000-acre tract of government land colonized years ago by peasants from Kerala state. The Madras 'government, which owns the· land located in. the border districts of Gudalloore, wants to evict them on the ground that the' peasants, many of them Catholics from the dioceses of, Palai and Changanacherry, are unauthorized 'encroachers: '

Detroit Program Educates Clergy As Specialists DETROIT (NC) - Priests, who traditionally have been "generalists" expected to do their best to cope with whatever problem troubled a parishioner, will be encouraged to qualify as specialists in particular areas under a continuing education program announced by John Cardinal Dearden of Detroit. Hundreds of priests are expected to take courses designed to increase their competence in a specialty while also widening cultural horizons. The program, under the direction of Auxiliary Bishop Walter J. Schenherr, will be coordinated by Father F. Gerald Martin, former vice rector of Sacred Heart Seminary. The program is one of a series of 'I'enewal measures now being taken in implementation of recommendations of the 1969 archdiocesan synod, in which many Detroit-area Catholics gave their ideas for fitting the Church's practices to the modern world. A two-part adult educational program designed to up-date religious practices of the laity already has been launched. Appropriate Courses Father Martin, in coordinating the new program, will consult with priests individually and through their organizations on study needs and desires, help find appropriate courses at educational institutions or in special workshops, and initiate programs if none suitable are in existence. Leaves of absence will be arranged for study when necessary. , "Today's priest is'like today's doctor, or any other professional man," Father Martin said. "He has to study continually just to keep even with the world's progress. "The priest has an extra problem, perhaps, in that he must maintain his role in the traditional pre-Vatican Co u n c.i I Church while serving as a transitional agent in bringing the renewed Church designed by the Council into being," he continued. "Priests are able to fulfill their ministries today in a way never before possible. Today they wor~ as always, with individuals but they are also working with groups. Today's priest must be able to know how to bring to the problems of men the talents of psychologists, lawyers, social scientists and others. "The opportunities now offered by Cardinal Dearden in the new program will be eagerly grasped," Father Martin said.

Report Comparisons In Store Prices DETROIT (NC) - Shopping conditions and the quality of merchandise offered for sale in inner city and suburban grocery and drug stores have bee'n compared in a 124-page document published by Focus: HOPE. The report is the result of more than a year's work and the efforts of more than 1,400 volunteers. It details store conditions, shopping conditions, quality and prices of meats and groceries as well as prescriptions. The report, compiled under the direction of Father William Cunningham and Jerome Fraser, studies stores in the Detroit, Highland Park, Hamtramck and 42 suburbs in the metropolitan area.

Stress Survival Of Family Life WASHINGTON (NC) - The survival of family life in Latin America is the goal of the Center for Family Research. and Study at Montevideo Uruguay. Since 1965 the center has been providing research, leadership training and information for some 60,000 members of the Christian Family Movement (CFM) throughout the continent. ','We want to use the 20-year experience of the present CFM' as a sp.ringboard for a stronger movement/' said Father Pedro Richards, C.P., director of the center and former Latin American moderator of the CFM. "Love, marriage, children ¢ ¢ .;: these are explosive ingredients , of society," he told the NC News Service on a stopover of a tour that took h~m through Belgium, France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy and the United States. "After two decades of working in the CFM, the leadership has discovered that we need not amateurs, but experts, to handle those explosives. We could see that the movement's drive was losing altitude because of our trial-and-error approach, our lack of clear objectives, and the ineffective methods we used," .

Soviet Christian Churchmen Visit Participate

WASHINGTON (NC) A group of Soviet Christian churchmen visiting the United States for a conference on arms limitation met briefly here with Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (DMass.), a principal opponent of the anti-ballistic missile (ABM) system and an outspoken critic of Vietnam war policy. Expressing surprise and gratification to learn that there was such a group in the Soviet Union, Kennedy welcomed their support in efforts to limit armaments. Referring to' the support that religious groups in the United States had given to the civil rights movement and to civil rights legislation, the senator said that religious groups can also be effective in aiding moves to limit armaments. The Soviet churchmen were representatives of Christian churches in the Soviet Union, and had come to. the U. S. to participate in a consultation in St. Louis on "The Christian Concern for Arms Limitations." Planned at Uppsala The Soviet delegation was headed by Russian Orthodox Bishop Juvenaly of Tula and Belyev, vice-chairman of the Department of Foreign Relations of the Moscow Patriarchate, and included Baptist ano Lutheran members as well as other Russian Orthodox delegates.

Named for Award ADDIS' ABABA (NC) - Pope Paul VI has been named to receive Ethiopia's 1969 Empress Menen Award "for exceptional services to humanity." The award, given by the Haile Selassie Prize Trust, was founded in honor of Empress Menen, Emperor Haile Selassie's wife of 53 years, who died in 1963. It consists of $12,000, a gold medal and a diploma.

Arms Limitation Talks

The St. Louis meeting was agreed on in principle at Uppsala, Sweden, on July 17, 1968, by Dr. Robert S. Bilheimer, executive director of the Department of International Affairs of the National Council of Churches; Msgr. Bordelon, director, Division of World Justice and Peace of the U. S. Catholic Conference; Metropolitan Boris

Cardinal Defines True Freedom PROVIDENeE (NC) - Distinguishing "true, God-given free. dom" from "selfish, pointless pseudo-freedom" is a major task of Catholic higher education today, Terence Cardinal Cooke of New York said here. Speaking at the 50th anniversary convocation of Providence College, Cardinal Cooke urged that the college assume "the role of a haven of freedom and a seeker for freedom." The cardinal received an honorary doctorate of religious education from he college, which is conducted by the Dominican Fathers. He said problems connected with human freedom are at the heart of current events and are in a special way the concern of churches today. "Within all the churches today, and certainly within the Catholic Church, there is a rene.wed emphasis on the freedom of the individual believer to live and act more positively, more personally, more responsibly, more maturely-in a word,· more freely," he said. Cardinal Cooke noted, however, that freedom can be used for evil as well as for good. "Freedom distorted, abused, exaggerated for oneself at the ex· pense of others, can quickly become a great burden upon society," he said.

Nikodim, chairman, Foreign Affairs. Department of the Moscow patriarchate and Alexesy S. Buevsky, secretary of the Department of Foreign Relations of the Moscow patriarchate. There was a latet agreement in Moscow on details between Msgr. Bordelon and Bishop Juvenaly. Christian Concern The consultation was to have special reference to nuclear weapons, antiballistic missile systems, international peacekeeping and the basis of Christian concern for these matters. The main purpose of the consultation was to have those present to confer together on these matters, and to lay the foundations for further talks. In an interview here, Bishop Juvenaly emphasized the Chris- , tian concern in the theme 'of the talks. The Russian delegation, he said, considered the meeting an historic one, since it is the first meeting of the sort between Soviet Churchmen and U. S. Catholic churchmen. Questioned about the Russian Orthodox Church's attitude toward war and the use of arms, he said: "We oppose war." But he added that the Orthodox Church had not opposed the Soviet invasion' of Czechoslovakia, since that was not regarded as a war.

Catholic Families Open Own School ST. CLOUD (NC) - Three Catholic families here have decided to educate their children in the atmosphere of "Holy Innocence" - a one-room country schoolhouse purchased and run by themselves. The three families have employed a certified teacher to instruct the six children in what they termed "God-oriented" education. The school teaches "the usual school subjects," they said. The school was purchaseQ at an auction for about $50 by Mr. and Mrs. Robert Sis, who ~aid they were dissatisfied with the trend toward secularism in the public and parochial school systems..

Hierarchy 'Field' Head-On Queries By Senators LOUISVILLE (NC}-More public dialogue about celibacy in the priesthood has been recommended by representatives of Priests' Senates throughout Kentucky and Tennessee. of several resolutions adopted by of several resolutions adoped by 50 priests who "support a responsible public dialogue on the relationship of clerical celibacy, to the contemporary needs of the Church." Reply to Queries The priests, meeting in the first of what is planned as an annual gathering of representatives from four Kentucky and Tennesse Sees, also: Urged the American Bishops to ask the Holy See for authority to determine at the local level if a priest may remain in his diocese as a layman after he resigns from the active ministry. Suggested establishment of mediation boards in Church provinces to provide "due process" and appeal for clergy and laymen alike. An unusual feature of the sessions was the presence of Bishops of the Louisville province-Archbishop Thomas J. McDonohue of Louisville, Bishop Richard H. Ackerman, C.S.Sp., of Covington, and Bishop Joseph A. Durick of Nashville, who were targets of criticism during the meeting. One session of- the meeting featured a talk by Father Patrick O'Malley of Chicago, president . of the National Federation of Priests' Council. 'Amen, Alleluia' At another session the Bishops fielded candid and head-on, questions concerning bishoppriest relationships for two hours. The Bishops had asked for the treatment. In his opening address, Archbishop McDonohue asserted "unless we communicate with one another we won't know what is going on." In his homily at the Mass which concluded the meetings, Archbishop McDonohue expressed the hope that the line of bishop - priest communications would remain open. Some priests responded with applause and one pastor shouted "Amen, Alleluia."

Comment on Viet Peace Moratorium WASHINGTON (NC) - Three officials of the United States Catholic Conference!J(USCC) issued a joint statement saying the Vietnam Peace Moratorium scheduled for Oct. 15 may serve the nation "as the occasion for reexamination, reflection, and prayer." The statement was issued by Msgr. Marvin Bordelon, director of the Division of World Justice and Peace, Father Lawrence T. Murphy, director of the Division of Campus Ministry, and Msgr. Thomas Leonard, director of the Division of Youth Activities. The officials said responsibility for national policy does not rest solely with government officials. "It, is .the responsibility of the nation's citizens," they said. "It is proper in It democratic society, and it is a matter for Christian conscience, that citizens continue to examine their country's policies, especially in time of war, and to make their convictions known to their leaders."

'Old .Rugged' ~ross': Sy,":bolizes Loving Care Given Fall River Area Cemeteries By Patricia McGowan

"These were the people who brought the faith to this co.untry!" That was the late Bishop Cassidy's shocked comment as he v~ew~d the con,dition of old St: Mary's Cemetery on Amity Street in Fall River. That was m the 1940 s and the long dIsused cemetery was hardly more than a weed-filled field. Bishop Cassidy ordered it cleared and restored to condition fitting the resting 'place for Fall River's first Catholics. No one visits . the cemetery nowadays, ~ "

most people don't know of its existence. It's a pleasant hilly spot just south of Fall River Shopping Center, reached by a dirt road and unmarked by any sign, but kept in apple pie order by workers from St. Patrick's Cemetery on Robeson Street. Looking at it you'd think very few people were buried there, for its green expanse is broken only by a few crumbling headstones, with now and then a more. modern monument. None examined bore a date later than 1901, although Mrs. Esther Wordell, clerk at St. Patrick's, and in charge of records for St. Mary's, says files show there were burials there until the 1920's. Crumbled Away There aren't many headstones, explained John Burke, now in charge of maintenance at the Bishop's residence on Highland Avenue, but formerly a worker at the old cemetery, because in the days before the area was tended, they fell down, crumbled away, or were buried beneath weeds. Plot records, however, can locate some burial sites, should anyone inquire. Not mariy people do inquire, said Mrs. Wordell. Partly this is because many bodies were moved from St. Mary's to St. Patrick's Cemetery when the newer facility became available. Many of those not moved were of people with no survivors. But the land is well cared for, and the headstones that do remain tell of life in more difficult times. Especially touching are memorials for children such as John, age 4, who died in 1874 and his sister Mary, age I, who died in 18-75. They were the children of Hugh and Mary O'Donnell and their grieving parents had a verse inscribed on their stone: Our precious ones from us has (sic) gone _ A voice we loved is stilled A place is vacant in our home Which never can be filled. Irish Pride Many stones reflect the pride of Irish. immigrants in. their place of birth. One man has on his, following his name, the declaration: "Native of the parish of Kilmane~ County Mayo, Ireland." Why was the old cemetery so far from what was then the city of Fall River?

Stresses Da nger In Viet Situation VATICAN CITY (NC) - The recent exchange of statements on Vietnam in the United Nations between President Nixon and Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko "said nothing new, and therein lies a danger for the future.." the Vatican City weekly said.. President Nixon, appearing before the UN General Assembly, appealed to member countries for diplomatic assistance in bringing the Vietnam war to an end. Gromyko, addressing the assembly, ignored President Nixon's appeal, declaring that the U. S. cannot win its goal in Vietnam "because its cause is unjust." The Vatican City weekly, L'Osservatore della Domenica, said editorially that the danger in Vietnam i!; that the situation may deteriorate. "After escalation, the U.S.A. has backed down and is still doing so, making concessions whose importance cannot be denied by anyone in good faith," L'Osservatore della Domenica said. "The intransigence (of the Soviet路 Union) shown toward this tangible desire for peace, apart from the prolonging of human sufferings of millions of South and North Vietnamese, seems to imply * 禄 ... the determination to defeat, the U.S.A. politically. It is not very probable that, faced with these pressures, the Americans would end by giving in. To believe It would mean not knowing them well."

Rumanian Prelate To Attend Synod

OLD RUGGED CROSS: John Burke, former worker at St. Mary's Cemetery, Amity Street, Fall River, now in' .charge of maintenance at Bishop's residence, examines old grave marker. Cemetery, unused for nearly 50 years, is still kept in top condition.

BONN (NC) - For the first time, the Rumanian government has granted permission for Bishop Aaron Marton of Alba Julia to leave the country, according to the German Catholic news agency KNA. The permission was granted to 'enable the bishop to attend the Synod of Bishops in Rome in October. Bishop Marton had been a prisoner of the Rumanian communist regime for nearly 20 years, until 1967, when restrictions on his ministry as a bishop were lifted in a softening of the government's attitude toward the Church.

CESAR CHAVEZ

Grape ~rowers Blast Chavez WASHINGTON (NC) -Cesar Chavez, his United Farm Work~ ers Organiz~ng Committee (UFWOC), ' 'and their' campaign against pesticide poisoning ,were charged with contriving an issue in an effort to "grab control of the nation's food production." California grape growers made the charge and other allegations during the second day of special hearings in the Senate Subcommittee on Migratory Labor. John G. Giumarra Jr., general counsel for Giumarra Vineyards Corporation~ Edison, Calif., said Chavez and UFWOC "have recklessly leveled the, false charge that the 'grape growers are poisoning the American people in a last ditch effort to buoy up their cause." Anthony A. Bianco Jr., representing Bianco Food Corporation, Delano, Calif., said California grape growers do not' use the chemical aldrin on grape crops as charged earlier by Chavez. Some tests have shown an aldrin residue on California grapes. But testing by the Food and Drug Administration has indicated no residue. Grapes purchased in a Washington supermarket showed , the presence of aldrin 180 times above human tolerance levels. These grapes' were purchased by UFWOC and taken to England Laboratories here for testing. Results of this analysis, according to Giumarra were "either in error, or '" '" '" the grapes were deliberately doctored by someone." '

tous falling-off in volume, two, and one reason is Lombardi's absence from the foreground. Kramer has retired from foot· , ball because, at 33, he can no longer perform as once he could. In his last season, a decline in deftness 'and speed was noticeable. A comparable decline is evident in the new book. It is a plodding, circuitous affair, only ,occasionally as amusing as its predecessor consistently was. Lombardi Made Difference , It does have some merits. For . example, in reviewing 'his' life, Kramer discloses that he was a gangly, indifferently coordinated boy, who collected butterflies. He recites a grueSOJ;De catalogue of the accidents and injuries which he survied. He recalls the pre-Lombardi' days at Green Bay, when the team was lackadaisical and a habitual loser. He describ~s the difference which Lombardi made, the discipline he imposed, and the pride and team spirit which victory brought., With Lombardi self-removed from coaching, the emotional pitch subsided, defeats came one after another, and disaffection and bickering resulted.

Obscenity Hearin路gs S""preme Court Opinions Confuse Local Law Enforcement Officials .

LONDON (NC)-oThough he is confident that Anglican reunion with Rome is on the way, the 64-year-Old Anglican Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr. Michael Ramsey, said here he does not ex.pect to live to see it. . At a Westminster Abbey ceremony here noting his 40th year of ordination, Archbishop Ramsey said the failure of recent Anglican conventions to give the necessary 75 per cent majority to the scheme for reunion with the Methodists was a great disappointment to him. "I believe," hEl' said, "that the Church of England has a middle role to achieve unity with the non-Episcopal Churches and at' the same time reach out to Rome. "I have been trying under my own leadership to keep both these things in view. We have . been reaching out in both directions consistently." He said he hopes that the same Anglican-Methodist proposals "will come back before long. The fact that the Methodists accepted is a good sign." At the same time, he said he hesitated ,to regard Christian union as the paramount question facing the Church. The guilding principle should be the Church's witness to God.

Critic Reports Book On Best Seller List SAN JUAN (NC) - A priest who was suspended by the Puerto Rican hierarchy for writing a book critical of the Church says the book now has hit the best seller list. Father Salvador Freixedo reports 39,200 copies have been sold and that 12,000 copies were sold in a single day.' The book,"My Church Sleeps," is critical of the Roman Curia, the hierarchy and certain doctrines and practices of the .Church. Father Freixedo left the Jesuits after serving in the society for 32 years. He was a coordinator of the lay apostolate and counsellor of the Young Christian Workers in the diocesan priesthood here prior to his suspension. "I do not exactly know what my future will be. I will leave for Miami and Venezuela soon, to talk on my book," Father Freixedo said.

ST. PETERSBURG (NC)-The Catholic bishops of Florida are planning a public relations and information program "designed to gain support for legislation which will aid parochial schools of the state. This disclosure came from Bishop Charles B. McLaughlin of St. Petersburg at an installation of Knights of Columbus ·officers here. The bishop emphasized all education in the country "is in crisis today, and Catholic education is no exception." He added "we should let our good friends and relatives in the community know What a serious crisis we are facing." "Let them know that we're ti'ying to hold the line, but the future looks very dim. Let them know that in the event we have to close our schools, that each and everyone of them will hlive to bear a part of the burden of the increased taxes (about $627 per child) that will come as a result of the increased cost .of education," he urged. "I can tell you that preparations are being made at this time for the consideration of some specific Jegislation in the state legislature this forthcoming session to aid our Catholic schools. I can also tell you that this legislation is substantial in character," he added.
