Dominican Ma$ter General .VisitinSI in Fall River Very Rev. Aniceto Fernandez, O.P., Master General of the Dominican Order, has arrived from Rome in America to visit all the houses of the French-speaking province of the Order located in Canada and New England. This week, he is the guest of the Dominican Fathers and Brothers of Saint Anne Priory in Fall River. The occasion of this visit is the 100th anniversary of the establishment of the French Dominicans in North America. From Canada these Dominicans, the spiritual sons of Lacordaire, crossed the J\merican border in 1881 to take charge of an important French pllrish in Lewiston, Maine. From there, a few of the sons of Saint Dominic. came to Fall River in November of 1887, at the request of Bishop Harkins, to minister to the needs of a rapidly swelling population of French - Canadian immigrants making up Saint Anne parish. Under the pastoral care and leadership of the' Dominican Fathers, Saint Anne parish has grown, prospered and made its influence felt beyond its present bounda.ries by founding mission chapels (1889 and 1897) that were to become the parishes of Blessed Sacrament at the South end of Fall River and of Saint Jean Baptiste in the Maplewood district. The Dominican Fathers of Saint Anne also founded the parish of Saint Dominic in Swansea (1911).

FATHER FERNANDEZ, O.P. During his stay in Fall River, the Dominican Master General will meet the Fathers, and Brothers of Saint Anne priory and the Dominican Sisters of this city. He will also pay a visit to Bishop Cronin, under whose jurisdiction the Fathers of Saint Anne serve in the diocese. Father Fernandez will preside at a concelebrated Mass being offered this morning at 11 :30 in Saint Anne church. All the parishioners of Saint Anne, members of the Third Order of Saint Dominic and the friends of the Dominican Fathers are warmly invited to attend this Mass to welcome the distinguished visitor and have the opportunity to meet him after the service.

The archbishop's talk was especially i,mportant during the mon~h of October, designated by the Bishops of the United States as "Respect for Life Month," It is the hospital that normally ushers in and protects innocent and dependent life; it is the hospital that quickly strengthens a threatened life; it is the hospital that illustrates the community's compassion for fading life; but it is also the hospital that can set the stage for a threat to life by abortion, carelessness and euthanasia.

Archbishop Bernardin spoke of "the spirit which must always pervade this hospital if it is truly to accomplish its mission among the people of this area," "The spirit of which I speak .is one which springs quite naturally and necessarily from our Judeo-Christian heritage," he said. "It is a spirit which is based on a great reverence for the human person because he h'as

Senator Hatfield Says Spiritual Revival Needed IOWA CITY (NC)-0nly religious renaissance, repentence and spiritual revival can cure American society's crisis of purpose, Sen. Mark Hatfield (Rep. Ore.) told a city-wide ecumenical service. here. The two-term Oregon gover.nor, now serving his second term in the U. S. Senate, said here that the nation must realize, as President Lincoln- did 110 years ago, "that the beginning of purpose. is the recognition of the need for redeeming love .. of the need for confession and repentence," Hatfield, a prominent Baptist layman, spoke at the fifth annual Iowa City Ecumenical Celebration at the University of Iowa fieldhouse. He told a crowd . estimated at 4,500 people that there is a crisis of purpose which "tries the soul of the nation and tests the resilience of the republic," To face that crisis is "to come face to face with the reality of sin," The nation, Hatfield stated, cannnot continue to pretend "that 'God has somehow chosen and blessed America as He did ancient Israel." He criticized the myth of a "national, folk religion, devoid of civil religion and the God revealed in Scripture." The Ecumenical Celebration was sponsored by Ecumenical Consultation, as an interfaith group here, and 22 Protestant and Catholic churches in the Iowa City area.

been created according to the image and likeness of God. "This. spirit prompts us to consider our fellow man as a person to be loved and helped," he added. "It makes no difference who this person is. Color or ethnic origin, affluence or the lack of it-such things are accidental and should in no way influence our love and respect for our neighbor and our desire to help him attain and enjoy the full potential of life God has given to him."

As a "yardstick" to measure this spirit, Archbishop Bernardin suggested the "imperatives of love" described by St. Paul in his first letter to the Corinthians: "Love is always patient and kind; it is never jealous; love is never boastful or conceited; it is never rude or selfish; it does not take offense and is not resentful. Love takes no pleasure in other people's sins but delights in the truth; it is always ready to excuse, to trust, to hope and to endure wbatever comes."

Two Bishops To Observe Golden Priestly Jubilees St. Mary's Cathedral, Fall River, will be the scene of a, unique celebration in the history of the American Church. A solemn concelebrated Mass will honor the retired Bishop of the Diocese and the Auxiliary Bishop both of whom celebrate their golden jubilee of ordination to "the priesthood.

Robbi Asks Curb 'On Missions In Israel LONDON (NC)--Israel's Chief Rabbi Schlomo Goren has asked Cardinal John Heenan of Westminster and Anglican Archbishop Michael Ramsey of Canterbury to help restrict Christian missionary activitly among Israel's Jews. Rabbi Goren met with the two churchmen here to ask for an end' to "the use of unreasenable means to persuade poor families to convert" to Christianity. Some Orthodox' Jewish reli· gious leaders in Israel have been urging the government to ban missionaries altogether. They claim that some 6,000 or more Jews are converted annually to 'Christianity. One rabbi claims that in the past seven years "at least 50,000 of our people have been lured away from Judaism." Rabbis claim that missionaries are especially active among Russian immigrants in new development towns. Rabbi Goren has called for a law forbidding missionary activity that "exploits the misery of individuals." Few Conversions He has expressed concern because the non·Jewish wives of Soviet Jews coming to Israel do not seem willing to undergo the rigorous conversion process prescribed by Jewish law. He said that out of hundreds of mixedmarriage families arriving in the past year only three have applied for conversion. A conversion process set up in .Tel Aviv by the Chief Rabbinate has so far failed to a,ttract, any immigrants." .' " ', In, June there was ;an official investigation of reports that a missionary organization was offering passages to Canada with three year work contracts to immigrants in Carmiel in northern Israel. The investigation found that reports were exaggerated and that only eight immigrant families had left thp. area in a year.

Mission Sunday WASHINGTON (NC) - The U. S. bishops have been urged to promote Mission Sunday (Oct. 21) as a means of furthering the missionary objectives of the' Church. The chairman of the Committee on Missions of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops (NCCB), Bishop Glennon P. Flavin of Lincoln, Neb." suggested that the bishops issued pastoral letters to "alert the members of ' your flock to an awareness of the material and spiritual needs of the missionary Church throughout the world and their responsi· bility in prayer and sacrifices." The Committee on Missions, Bishop Flavin said, hoped that priests might observe Mission Sunday by preaching homilies which would urge a sacrificial spirit reflective of a deep commitment to Christ and the Church. "Please God, th,e Mission Sun· day collection for the Society for the Propagation of the Faith," Bishop Flavin wrote, "will maintain the traditional high level of generosity that characterizes the Church here in the United States."

School Aid Laws Tested in Court

r I

/

PHILADELPHIA (NC) - Final testimony was heard in the three judge ,federal court panel here on Pennsylvania laws providing 4f books, materials and service.\> to /'"'' nonpublic school students. Attorneys for proponents of the raws entered testimony from educators, parents, a speech therapist and psychologist who were in favor of the laws. In effect, their testimony supported the contention that the laws aid chilo dren and do not promote reli. gion. Several organizations and individuals have filed a writ declar· ing that the aid laws are uncon· stitutional. Among them is the American Civil Uberties Union (ACLU). The ACLU attorney did not challenge any of the testi· monygiven by the aid proponents. He argued that the laws are unconstitutional "on their face." Judge John Gibbons adv'ised counsels for both sides to file briefs before Sept. 28 so -that the panel here could reach a decision. The decision is expected to be appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court. ' Defense attorney William Bell, at the final hearing here, said a heavy atmosphere of distrust has prevailed on the part of the courts and, the plaintiffs. He said they have presumed unfairly that the school administrators could too easily abuse the aid laws. The laws stipulate that the ',' boo~sl" in~tructiona~, : materi~ls and alixiliary services to non· "publ,ic, school ~tudent~ shall not be used to promote religion.

Bishop Weldon Says Tuition Free Catholic Schools to Continue SPRINGFIELD (NC)-"The diocese of Springfield is firmly committed to providing Catholic school education on a tuition free basis," Bishop Christopher Weldon of Springfield said in a pastoral letter. Pressures had been building on the bishop to begin charging tuition, said Bill Holub, community relations director for, the diocese. "But he's resisting the pressures," Holub added. 'Of a total of 4,081 Catholic elementary schools in the United States which reported to the National Catholic Education Asso· ciation for the 1972-73 school year, 9.1 per cent were tuition free, according to Msgr. Olin J. Murdick, secretary of the U. S. Catholic Conference's Department of Education. HowevJr, the' total reporting represented only about one-half of the diocesan elementary schools, which the 1973 edition of "The Official' Catholic Directory" lists as totaling 8,504. The 9.1 per cent, Msgr. Murdick said, was a decrease from

9.9 per cent the year before. The number of dioceses which. do not charge tuition was not available, he said. Bishop Weldon noted that the recent financial crisis in the Catholic schools has been caused by inflation', and "fewer Religious teachers." The Springfield diocese supports its schools by weekly contributions to parishes. "I am confident. however," Bishop Weldon said, "that our people will respond by Qoing all they can .to survive the financial crisis and to maintain ane). strengthen Catholic schools." He noted that the problem is not insoluble and that "the advantages and values to be derived from Catholic schools have to be made clear again to those who may have overlooked their distinguishing features."

Former students of St. Mary's Seminary and University, Baltimore, will attend their annual Alumni Days, Wednesday, Nov. 7 and Thursday, Nov. 8. Priests wishing to concelebrate at special Masses planned for the occasion are asked to bring an alb, cincture and white stole.

Bishops Advised To Delay Joining' National Council WASHINGTON (NC)-A committee of the U. S. bishops' Advisory Council has recommended "postponement" of a decision on Catholic membership in the National Council of Churches. A spokesman for the U. S.

He added, however, that suggestions not to join the NCC should not be taken to mean that the cause for ecumenism has been slowed.

<:atholic Charities Resolutions $upportt Boycott, Health C:are MILWAUKEE (NC)-A resolution supporting the boycott against Farah Manufacturing Co. received strong support from the National Conference of Catholic Charities (NCCC) convention here. Other resolutions rec~iving the support of the conve_ntion cal1ed for "more equitable" welfare and health care systems, alleviating the housing crisis, requiring federal revenue funds be spent on the poor, and an overall federal economic policy to provide more jobs. Members of the NCCC agreed to refrain from purchasing Farah products and to encourage local merchants' to discontinue the Farah line until strikers and the company' reach agreement. Charities delegates commended Bishop Sidney Metzger Of EI Paso, Tex., and Auxiliary Bishop Patrick Flores of San Antonio, Tex., for their support of the Farah strike. The NCCC urged that Congress undertake immediate reconsideration of the present social service programs and institute a new system which is less complicated, mpre equitable and tmly responsive to human dignity. The resolution stressed NCCC' efforts must assure that: --Family stability be supported through income maintenance and service programs directly .proportioned to need. --Human dignity be affirmed by programs which enable the unborn, . aging, emotionally ill and imprisoned to achieve fullness of life. --Specific attention be given Th~nks

toward developing "a continuum of care in the eommunity for all in need such as the blind, deaf, physically handicapped, retarded, alcoholic, mentally ill and elderly." The conference suggested that Sen. Edward Kennedy's (DMass.) proposed National Health Care program "assure universal eligibility and availability or'adequate health care to all citizens, especially those of low 'and fixed incomes." NCCC recommended that bold but practical programs be developed within the current legislative session to alleviate the progressively worsening housing crisis.

Await Final Report The report was passed on by the Advisory Council to the NCCB Administrative Committee which has taken no formal action, Bishop James S. Rausch USCC/NCCB general secretary, said. The U. S. Bishops will not take any formal action on the question of joining the NCC until the NCCB Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs Committee makes a final report to the bishaops. . Bishop Rausch said that the . committee of the Advisory Council noted that "the importance of the decision concerning membership demands a much more thorough .consideration than the Catholic Church has hitherto received." Bishop Rausch said the committee went on to urge that the matter be "systematical1y studied" by diocesan upastoral councils.

Advise Caution In RecQgnizing Chile Regime OTTAWA (NC)-Three Canadian Church leaders have cautioned the Canadian government against hasty reeognition of the new military regime in Chile. A military junta in Chile overthrew the government. of Marxist President Salvador AIIende in a coup on Sept. 11. The military said AIIende had committed suicide during the coup. There have been news reports that hundreds were killed during the coup. The three Church leadersDishop William Power of Antigonish, president of the Canadian Catholic Conference (CCC); the primate of the Anglican Church in Canada, Archbishop E.W. Scott; and Dr. Bruce McLeod, moderator of the United Church-in a telegram to External Affairs Minister MitcheIl Sharp pressed for safe conduct and aid for refugees and Chileans wishing to come to Canada. They also said they "hope and pray that violence will not generate further violence" in Chile. Their telegram said: "Today it is most important that people und1crstand and appreciate that social justice and hrotherhood tie all men together in every part of the world. "Awareness of this urges us to ~peak of the recent occu'rrences in Chile where it is clear that a democraticaIly elected government has been violently overthrown. We car; only hope and pray that violence will not generat further violence. We caution against precipitous recognition of an unconstitutional regime and we request the Canadian government to do its utmost so that constitutional government be restored as soon as possible. "A particular aspect in the Chilean situation is of special concern. Many refugees are presently living in that country. We strongly urge the Canadian government to offer safe conduct and assistance to those refugees and any Chileans who may wish to come to Canada." Bishop Power also sent the foIlowing 'personal telegram to Cardinal Raul Silva, president of the Chilean Bishops' Conference: "Deeply troubled by the suffering of the Chilean people. In friendship we extend to you and the people of Chile our sympathy with assurance of prayers and fraternal support."

Cardinal Repeats Call for Mercy In Chile SANTIAGO (NC) - Cardinal Raul Silva of Santiago repeated the Chilean bishops' call for mercy to officers of the armed forces who toppled the nation's Marxist government Sept. 11. At a Te Deum in his cathedral on Chile's Independence Day, Sept. 18, the cardinal said: "We pray to Our Lord that there -fill be no victors, no conquered ones." He immediatedly ;'offered our selfless cooperation to the new rulers, in the tasks of reconciliation and reconstruction." The Te Deum was the only official act aIlowed by the government in the aftermath of the battle between soldiers and workers that raged in downtown Santiago and some working class sections Sept. 11 and 12. Common Sense The junta that ousted Marxist President Salvador Allende, who reportedly killed himself, banned the traditional armed forces parade, claiming snipers were still shooting. Cardinal Silva said in his homily that the Te Deum was a spiritual shot "to encourage all Chileans to establish a climate, of understanding, justice and common sense, based on forgiveness and a spirit of neighborliness."

"The tension between the charismatic and the institutional in the Church is normal but it is false to think they are incompatible," he said. "People milY embrace the charismatic experience completely and remain in the Church." Pope Paul VI recently warned against wrenching the distinction between charismatic Church and institutional 'Church out of the theoretical realm and making the two reaIly separate. "Different' kinds of. churches do not exist," he said. "There exists only one, fuIl and perfect from its conception. And it is upon this Church that Jesus sent the Holy Ghost in order that the institutional Church might live by the animation of the Holy Spirit."

MQve Delay Aid To Chilean Rulers

to

WASHINGTON (NC) - Catholic and Protestant leaders have voiced their concern over human rights in Chile in the aftermath of the military coup there, and are asking the U.S. government to go slow on granting recognition to the new rulers. The International Affairs Committee of the Methodist Church told officials at the Department of State that it is "deeply concerned for the protection of political refugees residing in Chile" and asked- them to explore "ways of assuring the safety, well-being and freedom of those refugees." In Washington, representatives of the National Council of Churches (NCC) and of the U.S. Catholic Conference (USCC) made representations before the Department of State on behalf of followers of Salvador Allende, the Marxist president toppled by the Sept. 11 coup.

troIled by the speaker so that it comes out as a pseudolanguage. Explaining charisma as the' life energy of the Church, Father O'Connor said that it provides the sap to the wood, or institutions, of the Church insuring its unity, order and endurance. The religious meaning of the charismatic embraces prophecy as well as ~he gifts people need for their ministry and even personai experience of God, he said. "Both charisma and institutions came from Jesus," he continued. "Both are necessary to the Church because it is a community and Jesus united both in such a way that institutions themselves are charismatic."

"We must put an end to differences and conflicting opinions" over the recent past, the cardinal added. Four days after the coup he iso, sued an appeal for clemency to the new military rulers, saying: "We ask for moderation toward the defeated ones, and that all unnecessary reprisals be avoided ... Many of the ousted leaders were moved by sincere idealism and this must be taken into account."

Respect Life -

Brooklyn School .Strike Drags On

'[he Exceptional

BROOKLYN (NC)-The strike of high school teachers in the Brooklyn diocese, despite full support from the tough New York State United Teachers Organization, has been a gentlemanly kind of thing during its first two weeks.

This upcoming week of October-Respect Life Month-turns attention to the mentally retarded. The late Cardinal Cushing called the mentally re.. tarded exceptional and with good reason. They call upon exceptional understanding and kindness on the part of family and community. They summon forth an exceptiona! degree of the highest purpose of the state-the protection of those in most need of protection. And they give, in re·· turn,' an exceptional measure of love and dedication.

Both sides are stubborn in intensive salary negotiations. The Catholic diocese has offered a $300 annual pay hike, and the striking Lay Faculty Association (LFA) has come down in its de· mand from the original $1,000 to $800 at the time of the walkout on Sept. 13 and to $750 ten days later.

It is estimated that in the United States there. are about six million exceptional persons. The first reaction to this must be that every.expectant mother must be provided with good pre-natal care and good post-natal advice so that there be a minimum of risk to the unborn an~ newborn child.

A second reaction must be clearly identification of mental retardation so that a child may receive, as early as possible, the attention and care that will minimize the problem and aid him in his development. It is a matter of fact that eighty per cent of mentally retarded children can grow up to lead happy and productive lives, but so much does depend upon early recognition and training. Science must be supported so that the c.auses of mental retardation may be learned and answers found. Great strides are being made. all the time in areas that were previously thought to be without answers. Man must never take a closed door as being the final answer but must continue to look for solutions to problems and especia:lly in this area of mental retardation. Above everything else, people must not get into' the habit of equating high intelligence with a worthwhile life and low intelligence wit.h life t.hat is hardly worth living. '. . T,h~. age in .wl)ichwe live puts far too much stock in "the beautiful people" -:- those with good looks and ..high intelligence· and witty personaHties.· A.11 this is. equated with "the good life." And the accompanying frame of mimi sees the unlovely in appearance, the slow in intelligence, the dull in personality, as being so much excess baggage in the sum total of humanity, people hardly deserving of the name, people to be warehoused out of the mainstream of like and tucked away out of sight and consideration of others. This is not said in so many words-but the reality is there just the same. This .is the attitude that must be combatted during this coming week that ask a renewal of respect for the mentally retarded.

But, like the strike of Catholic teachers against the archdiocese of New York in December 1971, this one has been lacking in the verve and bitterness that often marks the scene when pickets and police and parents start shouting at each other before the cameras at a public school shutdown. This strike is the longest labor dispute in the Catholic school history of the. diocese. It affects seven schools and, in one way or another 12,000 students. Ninety per cent have gone regularly to school buildings for split sessions or all day classes, or movies supervised by skeleton staffs. "It's better than 1;leing . bored at home," one student said. - All of the schools have stayed open. Of'- the 505 lay teachers in the schools, 353 originally supported the strike. Eleven working days later 318 teachers wer~ out. '11I11I11I1I1111111111111111111111111111111111111111J1ll1ll1ll1llm'

In many situations, an' animal's right to life surpasses that of the human. This might seem to be extreme but the facts speak for themselves. There is a large segment of our population that would better animal life than human life, that would spend their hard earned money on the grooming of their pet than care for a mentally retarded child, that would care about the suffering of a dog and cat and shun all pleas for decent housing and decent medical care for the poor people of this land.

It was opened five years ago as a small Catholic secondary school for students 11 to 15. One-quarter of the student places and two of the governorships are in future to be 'held by Anglican nominees.

Admit Social Reform Drags BOGOTA (NC) - Secretaries of 19 national bishops' conferences agreed here that five years of Church renewal and social reform in Latin America have done little to improve the lot of the majority of the people. "The Church, is under pressure by extreme rightists and extreme leftists, and this blOCks her efforts," said the meeting, sponsored by the Latin American Bishops' Council (CELAM) headquartered here. All the Latin American nations except Cuba, Guatemala and Haiti sent delegates to the gathering, called by CELAM'S secretary general, Bishop Alfonso Lopez Trujillo. . The meeting reviewed efforts to implement the Medellij} guidelines for renewal and reform, issued at that Colombian city in 1968 by the second general assembly of the Latin American bishops. ' Discussions of the main theme: "Evangelization and Liberation," led to the admission that "it is very hard to break down privi. leges resulting from the concentration of wealth in the hands of the few." While observers of the ChurcH scene in Latin America say the local leadership moves slowly, the meeting indicated renewed efforts at reform should be forthcoming. ATTLEBORO'S Leading Garden Center

In recent months I've written twice on whv I feel Jesus is a happy person. Some people have disagreed; they say He must be sorrowful because of the condition of our world. It doesn't t.rouble me that people see Jesus differently. As a mother I do I went to the door, and just not treat all my children the knocked. He called out, "Forget same all t.he time. Sometimes it!

cipline. Consequently, while. I am the same mother, they each ~ee me differently at different times. Thus, I believe that while it is the same Jesus, people see Him differently ... according to their own experience. We know we are made in the image and likeness of God. Yet we are all different.' All races, mack, Oriental, Indian... all races, in depic:ting Jesus in their art, picture Him as they are themselves. And just as we see our own features in Jesus, we also seem to see our own personalities.. Perfected limage So although we say we imitate Jesus in our lives, it really seems we each see J,~sus as a perfected image of ourselves. Why do I see a happy Jesus? As a mother I'm constantly knee-deep in the petty, picky, infuriating nonsense that is part of children growing up. While many times this requires correction, or discipline there is a funny side too. Being able to see that humor, frequently, is all that keeps me sane. For example, the other night one son and one daughter were supposed to do the dishes together There is no greater physic than dish washing. Both immediately had to go to the bathroom ... but he can run faster. He didn't come out and she finally gave tip banging on the bathroom door.

Masses for Children Planned in Scotland ABERDEEN (NC)-Masses for children with special prayers for youngsters may soon be introduced in Catholic Churches in Scotland. , Bishop Joseph McGee of Gal10waY,"chairman of the Scottish bishops' liturgy commission, told the bishops' semiannual meeting here that a subcommittee is studying special children's Masses and hopes' to publish guidelines in· the ncar future. The Scottish bishops announced also that Cardinal Gordon Gray of St. Andrews and Edinburgh will represent them at the 1974 session of the World Synod of Bishops in Rome.

I knocked again. "I brought lots to read with me, so you can stand there and knock all night. I'll come out after you do the dishes." I knocked again. "You think you're so smart, not answering. You think that I think that you're Mom. Well, you're not fooling me;" Finally his curiosity got the best of him. The startled look on his face when he opened the door was so comical I couldn't help laughing. Now Jesus, in His time, was a startling person, and the Gospels are full of events where He shocked both His friends and His enemies. It seems perfectly normal to me to think there must have been times He couldn't help laughing at their consternation. Humor Needed Some days I believe that seeing the humor in raising kids is all that keeps me from murdering them. Is it possible that Jesus's sense 'of humor is all that keeps Him from wiping out man· kind? Jesus was human in all things but sin, Humans, unlike anim~ls, have, 11 sl'!nse of humor that makes them laugh. Normal peo· pIe do laugh' frequently ... and without committing sin. Some of us are even able to laugh at our· selves. ' What about a Little Boy aqd His young mother? Didn't they , ever laugh? What about the wedding at Cana? Not th~re, either? I'll bet He did. So, my Jesus is a happy man. I know He is God too, but I don't see any reason why being divine should diminish His sense of humor. If you think about your "image" of Jesus, you may learn . something about yourself!

Delay in Recognizing Chile Regime Urged TORONTO (NC) - The major superiors of Religious in Ontario province have joined other church leaders in urging the Canadian' government to delay recognition of the new military government of Chile. In a resolution unanimously endorsed by the 60 delegates to the annual fall assembly of the Ontario region of the Canadian Religious Conference, the superiors called the Sept. 11 military coup in Chile "an affront to democracy and liberty." ' They asked the Canadian gov· ernment to delay recognition of the new Chilean government "until it is clearly a government of the people," and "to grant political 'asylum to Chileans and foreigners. in Chile who request this of the Canadian government." They also expressed concern for the safety of Canadian citizens in Chile.

SACRAMENTO (NC) - Catholic hospitals. and Catholic doctors and nurses at non-Catholic hospitals, as well as any others with moral objections, can no longer be required to perform or take part in abortions in California. The new law takles effect Jan. I, following signing by Gov. Ronald Reagan, but state capital observers considered it highly unlikely any legal or other actions contrary to the spirit of the Therapeutic Abortion Act will be taken in the interim. . Under the act, sponsored by Assemblyman Frank Murphy Jr., a Republican from Santa Cruz, any non-profit medical facility organized or operated by any religious group will not be re,quired to perform abortions. Neither may employees of other hospitals be required to take part in abortions in violation of their moral, ethica.1 or religious beliefs. To gain such exemption, however, the employee must give the employing hospital written notice of his or her beliefs. Murphy said he authored his bill after learning a Catholic hospital in Montana had been ordered to perform sterilizations on demand because it was receiving public money. "Although there is no (California) statute which now requires religious hospitals to perform abortions," Murphy observed, "this measure is .a safeguard against either a court ruling or a future statute with such a requirement."

Pope Stresses Rights of Others VATICAN CITY (NC) - Pope Paul VI stressed the need for . men to live in peace and to recognize the rights of others when he received Syria~s new ambassador to the Holy See on Oct. 4. ' The new ambassador is Sami al-Droubi, a 52-year-old career diplomat who once represented his country as il permanent delegate to the Ar~b League. The ambassador, in presenting his diplomatic credentials to the Pope, referred to the 'sufferings that have resulted from the Middlle East conflict and stressed the need to work for peace and justice. In reply Pope Paul said that "if no people can, be excluded from the spiritual family which is em- ' braced by the mercy of God, none can be excluded from the human family, and each (nation) must be able to -be recognized, to enjoy its inviolable rights to existence, life and to the dignity of its own members, without forgetting its obligations towards others." Pope Paul said it is necessary "to lead all to see in every man a brother, to form consciences to (recognize) this major duty, to obtain a wider a~reement of public opinion, and to seek out ... the agreements and the juridical instruments that guarantee justice for all."

$500,000 Given For Victi.,,,s Of Drought NEW YORK (NC) - Catholic Relief Services (CRS) has received more than $500,000 in contributions, including $164,000 from 38 dioceses, Ifor its fund to aid the drought stricken nations of West Africa. Some $200,000 has been aIIocated by"CRS, the overseas relief agency of the U. S. Church, for digging wells and building irrigation systems in three of the six affected nations - Senegal, Upper Volta and Mauritania. Those nations and three others -Chad, Mali and Niger-have received $367,000 in other forms of aid, including food supplements, antibiotics, clothing, blan· kets and seed for new crops. The $200,000 for wells and irrigation-along with grants from European and American organizations-will enable CRS to expand its long range water projects designed to lessen the impact of future droughts: Lost Crops, Herds The drought has affected six million persons in an area just south of the Sahara Desert. The six-nation area, about half the· size of Europe, lost crops and herds of cattle. Rain came in June after years of drought, and the first harvest is expected by the end of October. CRS officials here said, how· ever, that aid is still needed particularly for the young and aged who have been hardest hit by the lack of food. In addition to 11. S. contributions, CRS has received a total of nearly $160,000 from foreign agencies: Oxfam, England; Danchurchaid, Copenhagen; Helpthe-Aged, London; Lutheran Aid, Sweden; Caritas, Belgium; Oxfam, Canada; and Swedish Interchurch aid.

Urge Government Aid p'oor Cc)untries MISSISSAUGA (NC) - The major superiors of' Ontario's Relig'ious have asked the Canadian government to use its infhience to obtain for underdeveloped countries increased rights to draw on the resources of the International Monetary Fund (IMF). The Superiors, members of the Canadian Religious Conference-Ontario (CRCO), representing 8,460 Religious men and women, unanimously endorsed "the principle of establishing a link between assistance to less developed countries in the reform of the international monetary system." The issue of linking assistance to poor countries to international monetary reform is one of the principal topics to be discussed at the current meeting of the International Monetary Fund in Nairobi, Kenya. The IMF, set up in 1944, is an organization of 120 countries whose purposes are to promote international monetary cooperation, facilitate expansion of international trade and he)p members meet temporary balance of payments difficulties when imports greatly exceed exports. .

L!'sl Member of"Cavalry of Christ' Now Living in Brownsville Rectory BROWNSV,ILLE (NC) - The "Cavalry of Christ" rode through south Texas around the turn of the cel)tury, but now that group of horseback missionaries is only a memory. "We used horses in those days to visit the missions, because ,there was no other way to get around," said Oblate Father Yvo Tymen, no~ 94 and the last surviving member of the cavalry. Father Tymen is now retired. He lives in a small room in the rectory of Immaculate onception Cathedral here. With an ancient purple beret, badge of his native Brittany, cocked over one eye, he recently recalled his days in the "Cavalry of Christ." After being ordained in 1907 he was sent to Rome, Tex. Dur: ing his six years in that Ibarren outpost of the Church, he travelled on horseback to visit outliving "ranchos" and missions. Accidents He remembers one morning in 1910 when his horse slipped while g9ing up the bank of an arrovo. The horse, whom Father Tymen 'affectionately remembers as "Old Pancho," slipped and fell bac,k on top of him, breaking one of the priest's legs and a foot. There was no doctor to care for him and Father Tymen's legs did not heal straight. "I kept ongoing , kept on working," said ,Father Tymen. "I couldn't get up the steps of the altar after that, but I kept on going." He suffered a rattlesnake bite in 1919 in Eagle Pass. Old age has now forced the priest to take to a wheel chair. Motor Chapel The 20th century caught up with this member of the "Cavalry of Christ" in 1913, when Fathere Tymen was put in charge of a "motor chapel car"-a large

The vehicle was not well suited, however, to the almost nonexistent roads of that time and made it as far as a bridge just outside of Brownsville. The motor chapel was too heavy and the bridge collapsed under it as it passed over. After the vehicle was rebuilt, Father Tymen took off again for the distant and widespread missions. Then fatigue and illness overtook him. He closed the motor chapel up and his provincial

Missioners Held For Questioning MIAMI (NC)-The parents of Maryknoll seminarian Francis Flynn spoke to him before his birthday over a a long-distance call from Miami, his home, to . Santiago, Chile, as a birthday gift. Flynn spent his birthday three days later at ·a Santiago sports stadium as a prisoner of the military junta that toppled the socialist regime of the Unidad Popular Coalition Sept. 11. Some 4,300 other prisoners had been rounded up and sent to the stadium for questioning. They are suspected of Marxist leanings. "He sounded casual and reassuring," his father Frank J. Flynn, said here. "We even discussed Christmas gifts." At th~ time Chile was in the midst of a crippling strike and outbursts of violence among supporters and enemies of Marxist President Salvador Allende. Allende died during the ensuing coup. With Flynn is aMther Maryknoll missionary, Brother Joseph Dougherty of Quincy, Mass. Spokesman for the order at Maryknoll, N.

When the nurse came in to 'take one of the other boy's temperature, I wondered, "Why isn't she taking Mike's" But when she gave only Mike a medication, I wondered, "Why Mike?

Lauds Catholic Relief Agency VATICAN CITY (NC) - U. S. Catholic Relief Services (CRS) is a "tremendous help" to millions still threatened with death in the drought-stricken Sahelian zone of Africa, according to a top official of Cor Unum, Pope Paul's coordinating agency for international Catholic relief efforts. ' At a press conference here Swiss Dominican Father Henri de Riedmatten, secretary of Cor Unum, praised the efforts of CRS -the overseas aid organization of American Catholics-in the six stricken African countries. Father De Riedmatten, recently returned from a mid-September meeting in Ouagadougou, Upper Volta, with government and Church leaders, !!.aid the situation is still perilous but that relief efforts are paying off. ' At the Vatican press conference the Dominican priest said tl1at, although some rain had come to some countries, govern-' ment leaders consider it neces· sary "to maintain a state of emergency for the coming year." One of the "plus" factors in the devastation that overtook Mali, Chad, Niger, Mauritania" Senegal and Upper Volta last year is the aid delivered by gov· ernment and charitable organizations, the relief coordinator said.

The variations in treatment were wide. Three of the boy~ stayed two nights in the hospital, an effort to cut down postsurgical hemorrhaging at home One boy stayed only the night before surgery. One physician gave no post-surgical pain relievers; another gave them at every wince. One physician had his patient's temperature taken every 15 minutes after surgery for four uninterrupted hours. None of the others followed such a procedure. Fortunately, we parents were able to talk about our reactions to the differing treafments. (What else could we do, sitting in a darkened room with recuperating boys for about 15 hours?) We began admitting to' and chuckling over our overprotectiveness, wondering aloud why the mother of the fourth boy seemed so relaxed and un· concerned. "I've been through it four ,times," she said. "When you know what's right for your child, you don't let the care of other children worry you.". Wise mother. I've thought of her words in' many contexts since then. When I'm sure of what's right for my child, I don't let the methodology of others bother me. It's only when I'm unsure of what I'm doing that I get nervous in the' parenthood role. For instance, if I know one of my children needs 10 hours sleep to be livable, I don't let it faze me if some pediatrician says nor· mal children need only eight. If my children thrive in and enjoy a traditional c1as~room situation, why should I be worried if they aren't getting "open concept" or modular scheduling? If I feel my children are developing good religious attitudes on a level with their moral· understanding, why should I be concerned beca'use a child in the next parish is being confirmed at eigt? Or IS? ' .It's Ignorance Ignorance is what keeps so mimy parents upset over the state of religious education. Instead of doing their homework, they worry and complain. Each variation in parish programs upsets them. They're unhappy if their children are learning something. Cousin Sue's catechism is more important to them than reading the paper sent home by their children's. religion teacher, explaining the purpose and value of their lesson. ' . I suppose, back in the tonsillectomy ward, we parents would have been more satisfied if all the boys had identica1.treatment. If there were no variations, dif'-. fering philosophies, or unique procedures, we would 'have conconcluded all the doctors agreed on treatment. We would have' been wrong but comfortable. Is that what we .want .to get back to in religious education?

Sacred Hearts Af~ad~my Book Fair To Feature '~rop 20' Priest Rev. Edmund Nadolny, com· munications director of the Hart· ford archdiocese, is a man with a message. It will be heard at 8 P.M. Thursday, Oct. 25 at the annual book fair sponsored by 'the Parents' Association of Sacred 'Hearts Academy, Fall River. Father Nadolny, conc;erned over the drift of teenagers from the Church, began three years ago to record"sermons specifi· cally for the music-and-news radio station teens listen to most. Now his "Top 20" sermons are carried by 175 stations across the natjon. . , In them he relates mu~ic, news and the gospel to such teen problems as boy-girl relationships, family difficulties, drug use, loneliness and personal appearance. God's Presence A song such as Caroie King's "You Light Up My Life" can be used, to explain that God is pres· ent where people enjoy true friendship. And a gospel song such as "Amazing Grace," now enjoying a pop vogue, is made to order for his purpos':!s. Father Nadolny doesn't conJine himself to music-with-a-message. He also conducts radio talk shows and is active as marriage counselor. In al!, he says he produces 17 different .types of radio shows, which are carried by 500 radio stations including the 175 pop music outlets. He's not making !poney on his radio career, actually h;1ving his efforts underwritten by private contributors. But he feels hie's making waves in the teenage w'orId, as well as among adult radio 'listeners, as he obeys in ,20th century fashion the ancient command, "Preach the gospel to an men."

Also at the' audience was a group from South Africa. The Pope praised the work of the Union Saint Jean Baptiste for its contribution to Catholic education in New England over the past 73 years. He recalled the Second Vatican Council's statement that the higher education of young.Cath· olics is of capital importance for for the future of the Church and society. Leading the pilgrimage of the Union Saint Jean Baptiste were the organization's president, J. Henri Goguen; its general secreta,rytary, Miss Lovice Courcy, and its chaplain, Father John L,~donux.

Truly you are doing your duty both as good citizens and as good Catholics, because, as the Second Vatican Council points out, 'the future of .society and of the Church herself is clearly bound up with the development of young people who engage in higher studies.; . Concern to Help "Your particular concern for the promotion of French culture and civilization' helps also to provide that appropriate degree of cultural enrichment which all citizens must have an opportunity to acquire. "In the work which you do directly for the local churches, by defraying the expenses of construction of different parochial buildings, you are giving'" expression to your underllying concern to help and cooperate with your pastors, as the early Christians did in the times of the apostles. It is our prayer that the Lord will bless yow· endeavors with his continued assistance."

He also noted that he is now a "next door neighbor" to Boys Town since his parish which he founded 20 years ago, borders the institution. As a result, he added, the grounds, personnel and many of the boys are familiar to him. . AI::hoough never connected with the Boys Town, Father Hupp has had a.mple experience with youth.

as a result of a statement I delivered at'a press conference last year, I noted that a declining birth rate and a number of other factors were leading to a large number of vacancies in colleges and universities throughout the country. Dr. Christian Schwartz-Schilling, executive secretary of the Christian Democratic Union in the West German state of Hesse,

read Fattier Ryan's statement in the German press and decided to look into the possibility of sending some of Germany's surplus of students to this country. Dr. Schwartz said that every year approximately 40,000 are graduated in Germany who are qualified but cannot attend college because there is simply not enough space in the German schools.

We wish to help others appreciate God's love for them, their inner dignity as persons, as Christians. We wish to enable those we teach to grow in hope, in trust in God's grace and personal care. We can facilitate this by making an honest effort to become sensitive to the small and large achievements, those we teach, and to praise them for their successes, whether large or small.

But the setting is right: grand and wild, empty and still, secretive and listening, portentous somehow and fateful, un1er a bland sky. Little Thebes Modern Thebes, alas, IS msignificant, with only a few traces of its tragic past now to be found. It 'is a small industrial community in the midst of an agricultural area where cotton and cereal grains are grown, as well as tobacco.

The road keeps rising, keeps spiralling, as one approaches Delphi. This is mountain country, a throng of mountains, the lesser jostling one another and being bullied by the greater. Ahead now is lofty, double路 peaked Parnassus, where dwelt Dionysus, god of wine and the last to be admitted to Olympus. Below Parnassus, on a height of its own, is Delphi, once considered' to be the center of the , world. Here was the sanctuary of Apollo, the god of truth, "who ever 'brought fair order and harmony out of confusion, who stood for moderation and sobriety, upon whose temple. was graven the great Delphic saying, 'Nothing in excess.' " The Oracle Except, that is, the effort required to ascend the steep sacre:! way, to the restored temple. The path is lined by greenery, the battered bases' of vanished statues, arid the ruins of various treasuries, each of which once housed the sumptuous offerings of a community in the expanding Greek world. Thus, the treasury of the Siphnians was opulent with the gold mined on the island of Sifnos. But what made 'Delphi "the center of the world" was not temple or treasuries, not sculp-. ture or dram.a or games, but the oracle, the best known and respected of all. Even in its fallen state, Delphi awes the visitor. There is, of course, the setting: the precipitous hill, the plunging ravines, the tangles of tree and thickets, the phalanx of mountains. There are, too, the shattered 路evidences of the honor once done to this sanctuary in monuments which the builders though.t might last forever. They did not, of course. But, most of all, there are the associations, still palpable. Pilgrim's Progress From near and far, people hastened here seeking truth, seeking the answers to life's riddles and griefs. To us, many centuries after the coming of Christ, it all seems crude, even childish. But it did represent a stage in spiritual progress, as is seen when one considers what went before. Here, for example, no human sacrifice, as across the Mediterranean in North Africa. Here no worship of bird or beast, as i~ Egypt. Here no orgiastic rites, drunken and bloody, as on nearby Parnassus. Here was authentic human aspiration, a reaching for the heart of divine mystery. 'Only Christ would be the answer to these, and his advent was being much better prepared for in a smaller land farther east. But in a real sense, it was being prepared for, remotely, here too.

Pharisees Set Themselves Apart Continued from Page Sixteen but it should be remembered that it was not the Pharisees , but a group of Sadducees who turned Jesus over to Pilate. In interpreting the law, the Pharisees went beyond the written law to the "...,ayings of the fathers," a group of oral traditions and interpretations that eventually evolved into the Talmud, the great collection of the decisions and discussions of generations of Jewish sages. These sayings were described as "fences built around the Law" the scrupulous observance of which would prevent any possible transgression of the Law itself. Rigorous observance of the Sabbath, legal purity and tithing were among the 613 prescriptions imposed upon' themselves by the Pharisees in the belief that knowledge of the Law and observance of the 613 prescriptions was a guarantee of piety. Externalism In fact, the Pharisees' rogorism and legalism resulted in a religious externalism that quenched. the real religious spirit and caused them to be compared

to "whited sepulchres" by Christ. Among the beliefs of the Pharisees were the resurrection of the body, the existence of angels and spirits and the expectation of a final judgment. They also conceived of Israel as a theocracy, a nation-religion, but preferred submission to Rome to open rebellion. The sect's doctrines were generally Messianic and included Aliyah, belief in the final ingathering of the tribes of Israel at the end. Hypocrisy Christ was certainly not alone in being opposed by the Pharisees. They opposed the Zealots because of their professed belief in open rebellion against Rome; they opposed the Sadducees because the priestly sect rejected the oral tradition the Pharisees revered and also rejected the 'Pharasaic beliefs in resurrection of the body and the existence of angels and spirits; they opposed the common Jews, described by them as "rabble that knows not the Law" because most of the common Jews of the time neither knew nor cared about the niceties of pharasaic observance. It was this attitude that caused the Pharisees to be castigated by Jesus and ultimately caused their name to become synonymous with hypocrisy and hollow legalism.

THE ANCHOR-Diocese of Fall River-Thurs. Oct. 11, 1973

Continued from Page Sixteen should speak of Jesus' Paschal victory over sin, sickness and . death; biblical passages need to 'strengthen participants' faith and hope. The renewed ritual establishes a priority here. Prayers for the sick "should draw primarily upon the scriptures." (Art. 44). It also provides a w~alth of suitable passages from the Bible (9 Old Testament, 21 New Testament, 20 Gospels, 7 from the Passion).

Jesuit Historian Says Wartime Vatican Journalist Sold L i e s . ROME (NC)-Can a journalist make a living on lies? ' Virgilio Scattolini, a former Vatican journalist, did just that for 10 years during' and after World War II by peddling his "Vatican Bulletin," liberally laced with exploits of world and Church leaders, to American news services and both AlIieo and Axis spies. American Jesuit Father Robert Graham, Vatican expert historian on the role of the Holy See during war, has recounted the "incredible success" of Scattalini in the Sept 15 edieion of Civilta Cattolica, Jesuit magazine. Scattolini, according to Father Graham, sold his completely invented stories to the United Press, Associated Pr~ss and International News Service. . In ~ddition, the former film editor for the Vatican daily, L'Osservatore Romano, had as customers intelligence agents of Italy, Japan, Nazi Germany, the United States and probably; the Soviet Union. Accordi'ng to Father Graham, the ingenious Scattolini could invent entirely persuasive accounts of non·existent meetings between Pope Pius XII ,and his en· voys, add a name like Roosevelt, Franco or Cardinal Spellman and see his handiwork printed in The New York Times or' the Times of London. Indeed, Father Graham has discovered in the archives of wartime Germany some stories' very similar to Scattolini's style which are marked: "Shown to the Fuehrer." . Father Graham laId NC News Service in Rome that during his years of research he kept coming across "ludicrous and falsified

accounts" of Vatican activities which bore a, resemblance to Scattolini's work. . ,These Father Graham fIled under the title "Hoaxes, Howlers and Humbugs." During a trial in Rome in 1948, Scattolini admitted he was the author of such stories and that. they were entirely fabricated by him. Conspiratorial Silence How could a journalist operate for such a long time on lies, selling them to reputable agencies and intelligence agents? In his article, Father Graham blames the news agencies for "omerta," a conspiratorial silence for their own gain. To NC News Service the softspoken scholar added: "Scattolini got his start in wartime, when confusion abound; ed. Many agencies did not care all that much what went on in .the Vatican and left it to local journalists who were by their own nature extremely imaginative and would believe aIWthing. "The surprising thing was to discover Scattolini's reports in the archives of Nazi Germany as well as the Office of Strategic Services (now the Central Intelligence Agency) in Washington, D.C. Scattolini was found guilty in 1948 of "hostile acts against a foreign state" (Vatican City State) after the Holy See finally wearied of Scattolini's inventions for a decade. Father Graham concludes his article by defending the Va!-._ ican'spractice' of c8rrecting the' modern·day press for its inac· curacies concerning the activities of the Holy See.

·Pennsylvania 'Conference States Position on Capital Punishment HARRISBURG (NC) - The Pennsylvania Catholic Conference has released a statement calling upon state· legislators to explore every alternative before' voting to retain capital punishment. The conference's statement, while not definitively against capital punishment, offered the argument that there are count· less references in Scripture that could be interpreted as being against it. "It is difficult to find support of capital punishment in the New Testament," the statement added. The statement, however, said that pepple in good conscience might be justified in working to retain capital punishment on grounds t~at they consider moral and justified. .Currently there are several bills in the Pennsylvania legislature which would retain capital punishment for certain sp~cified crimes. The Pennsylvania Cath· olic Conference has not taken a position on any of these pro-· posed bills The U. S. Supreme Court in June. 1972, ruled by a 5 to 4' vote that the death penalty as usual1y enforced in the United States was a violation of' the Eighth Amendment prohibition of "cruel and unusual punishment. ..· But three of the five sep-

Jewelry City Rivals Clash In S.E. ~vlass. Division I Game Attleboro High, riding the crest of a three game unbeaten streak and currently leading Division I of the Southeastern Massachusetts Football Conference, will host crosstown rival Bishop Feehan in Saturday's premier game. Coach Jim Cassidy's Blue . Bombardiers enter the fray ing Attleboro more than any club on the schedule. with a half game lead over This year's contest is not, on Dartmouth in the loop's paper. anyway, the typical meetstandings and, at least, a full game advantage over the other six divi~ion members. While Attleboro must be considered a strong favorite to retain its unblemished record anything is likely to happen when these two fierce adversaries meet. The enthusiasm generated before this intra-city clash rivals that of most Thanksgiving Day games. Given a choice, many Attleboro fans would rather see their favorites beat Feehan than Turkey Day rival North Attleboro. Likewise, Feehan followeds delight in beat-

ing of the giants. It is more simi1ar to the David and Goliath clash. Attleboro rolled to a relatively easy 28-8 win over Taunton last Saturday while Feehan upset Msgr. Coyle-Bishop Cassidy High of Taunton 14-8. Coach Paul O'Boy's charges will be fired-up for Saturday, and well they will have to be if they hope to halt the Bombardiers: Elsewhere in Division I Barnstable will be at Coyle, Taunton plays at Dartmouth and Somerset entertains Falmouth.

"Cranberry Bowl" May Determine Champ Barnstable and Coyle will both be looking 'for their first Conference win." The Red Raiders beat Dennis-Yarmouth 20-0 last Saturday in a non-league contest. Taunton will also be searching for its initial IQop victory when it meets Dartmouth. The Tigers are 1-2-1 for the campaign to date. " Dartmouth, 3-0 on the 路season, beat Somerset last Friday evening and should have little difficulty registering its fourth win of the campaign. Falmouth came up with a strong performance a'gainst Durfee High of Fall River Saturday last to earn its first win of the Fall, 17-8. That victory should provide the impetus needed for Saturday's game with Somerset. The annual "Cranberry Bowl" game between Wareham and Old Rochester High of Mattapoisett will be staged Saturday in Wareham. All the celebration before and after the game could very

well be upstaged by the contest itself. Until last week, Wareham appeared to' be' an overwhelming . favorite by virtue of its 3-0 record compared to the Bull Dogs I-I mark. However; Coach Gerry Oliva's Red and White looked very impressive enroute to their 34-0 thrashing of Norton. The "Bull Dogs proved they can score from anyhere on the gridiron and can play. defense with the strongest clubs in the circuit. On opening day O.R. lost to Case High of Swansea 7-0 on a pass interception and return. Whether the Bull Dogs can hold powerful Wareham remains somewhat of a question, but its offense should test the Vikings. Coach Jim Lanagan's charges rolled over Diman Regional of' Fall River last weekend 40-18. The Vikings are rated the number one team in Division III going into Saturday's contest. A victory should insure Wareham of a repeat championship..

Nantuclket's Mayflower Loop Lead Slim Case High of Swansea will host Norton in another Division III contest. ifhe Cardinals" handed New Bedford Vocational a 25-6 setback in their last outing. New Bedford will be idle this weekend and Diman will play Blue Hill Regional 'in a nonleague affair. A complete slate of games is slated for Division II Saturday when Bishop Stang of Dartmouth plays at Seekonk, DightonRehoboth travels to Bourne 'and Dennis-Yarmouth hosts Fairhaven. In last Saturday's action division leader Bourrie defeated Fairhaven 22-12, Stang topped Dighton 12-6 and Seekonk won its non-league encounter with St. Clement's 18-0.

In the eight team Mayflower League Nantucket retained its first place position by beating Provincetown 36-16 last Saturday. The circuit leaders, however, are in a precarious position with only a half game lead over Apponequet, Martha's Vineyard and West Bridgewater. The Islanders will host West Bridgewater thi,s week end while loop favorite Apponequet entertains winless Manchester. Martha's Vineyard should be able to keep pace with the front-runner when it plays Blue Hills Regional of Canton. Provincetown is at Southeastern Regional in Easton.
