Schools to Receive Easter Collection Just before Easter it was announced by Bishop Connolly that the traditional Easter collection would be used to help defray the cost of educating needy children in the 54 elementary schools of the Diocese. Following the recommendation of Rev. Patrick J. O'Neill, Ed.D., Di- thousand dollars. More than was distributed. ocesan Superintendent of $62,000 Elementary school tuition for Schools, the Chancery Office each child has been set at one is currently distributing these funds. Special attention has been given to schools and areas having extraor.dinary need. A sum of fifty dollars is being allocated for each needy child. In addition, schools with special needs as gauged by the Dioce,san School Department are being provided with a grant of one

hundred dollars with the parish paying half and the child paying half. There are, however, many instances in which the child, cannot afford tuition and this is to be no bar in accepting him and keeping him in a parochial school. However, since expenses still must be met the allocation of the Easter Collection money will assist to meet this need.

Dennisport Youth and Social Center Slated for Opening November 1 A center to accommodate summer parishioners at Dennisport has been transformed into the Holy Trinity Youth and Social Center for all denominations in the HarwichDennis area. The $200,000 building has a basketball court, a fully equipped kitchen, 20 showers, storage rooms and a heating system. A program committee, meeting weekly, will implement and project plans for the use of the center. Already planned are programs for pre-school children, elementary school youngsters, junior and senior high school students, and older citizens. Rev. Finbarr McAloon, SS.CC., pastor of Holy Trinity Church, West Harwich, whose idea it

was to transform the 700 capacity hall into a permanent building has stated that he fervently hopes that this project will be an ecumenical success. The youth and social center will be inaugurated on Nov. 1 with a dinner-dance.

VI attempted the amount of Synod of Bishto provide for

a thorough review of all problems plaguing the Church today. The Synod of Bishops was called together to discuss one question - how the Pope can share authority with the bishops while retaining his supreme power in the Church, that is, a practical and efficient collegiality. However, many bishops have insisted that the present agenda does not touch on many problems that are mounting to a crisis stage within and without the Church. To touch on these, Pope Paul invited the bishops to bring one or two of their priests with them and meet with John Cardinal Wright to discuss the celibacy question and other priestly

Weekly Classes In 13 Fields Encouraging The Diocesan CCD Office has reported good attendance at adult education courses which opened at 10 centers this week. The CCD Fall semester schedule offers 24 courses covering 13 fields of adult education and catechetlcs. Several new features have been introduced into the adult program, according to Rev. Joseph L. Powers. Diocesan CCD Director. Included is a new basic doctrine course, "Our Developing Faith." The new course has been developed by CCD Directors of the five areas of the Diocese to meet the needs of the average layman and the CCD teacher and to provide them with an overview of basic Christian beliefs.

problems. Cardinal Wright is head of the,Congregation for the Clergy. The Pope also appointed a commission, headed by Pericle Cardinal Felici, to receive all controversial questions instead of having them brought up before the 147 bishops in the synod. The Cardinal has strongly backed the Pope's views on celibacy and birth control in the past. Some have seen this as an attempt to control discussions of controversial topics. Others, however, have seen this as the Pope providing the bishops with an opening to assure more attention by the Pope himself to these problems and more adequate debate at a subsequent synod. The bishops speaking in the synod so far have carefully, struck out at the extremes of collegiality: where the Pope would decide all and deal with bishops only as his delegates;

Sunday and Holyday Obligations Distinct The Apostolic Delegation in Washington has released a decision recently promulgated by the Sacred Congregation for the Clergy concerning the obligation Catholics have of assisting at Mass on Sundays and holydays.

or where the bishops would decide all and review all of the Pope's pronouncements beforehand. Justinus Cardinal Darmojuwono, an Indonesian, stated that "The Supreme Pontiff certainly should ask logically for' the counsel of his brethren in the Episcopate. If not, then I fear he will experience the same thing as followed Humanae Vitae (the birth control encyclical)." Leo Cardinal Suenens continued by saying that many persons in the Church would like the papacy to resemble the absolute monarchies that existed before the French Revolution. Referring to the Pope as the Successor to the Apostle Peter, he said that bishops are not only under Peter but exercise power with Peter. He found that the Vatican agenda for the synod seems to show bishops only as the Pope's assistants. Turn to Page Six,

Ex-Cons Organiz·e Little Leag~e, Pride of Chicago Ghetto Areal. \

CHICAGO (NC) - Earlier in life, Jerry Donnelly got caught off base. He paid for his mistake and now has come up with a philosophy regarding kids, especially ghetto kids. It goes. like this: "They've got just so much time to be kids and to have fun. Every kid should have that right. But some people say 'some kids are bad. They're not bad. All they need is for someone to give them a chance." So philosopher Jerome Thomas Donnelly, who makes no bones about being ·an' ex-con, put his theories' ·into practice' in a ghetto area here.' The results '. were surprisingly gopd. .

Intense Rivalries Stymie Dialogue In Holy Land

THE ANCHORThurs., Oct. 16, 1969

Expect Initiative, From Catholics

NEW YORK (NC)-In Israel, the one' nation where Jews are a majority and Christians a distinct minority, efforts at Jewish-Christian dialogue are largely stymied by intense rivalries and political preoccupation among the Christians, a visiting Jewish scholar charged here. Professor Zwi Werblowsky,44, Dean of the faculty of humanities and professor of comparative religion at Hebrew University in' Jerusalem, explained in an interview here that he is spending his sabbatical year in this country. He will serve as visiting fellow in Judaism at the institute of advanced religious studies at the University of Notre Dame, and as visiting professor in comparati~ religion at the University of Chicago divinity school. State of Christianity Christianity today is in a state of "underdevelopment" in the part of the world where it was born, Prof. Werblowsky asserted. "This is a fact which Christians have to take to heart and which Jews (in Israel) are trying to do something about," he said. At the same time, partly because of the state of Christianity there, "Israel is underdeveloped ecumenically," he claimed. Professor Werblowsky said he is trying to do something about the situation through leadership in two organizations-the Interfaith Committee and a more intellectually oriented, private body called the Rainbow Group. His attempts to work with Christians in these and other interreligious efforts in Israel provided insights into the state of Christianity in the Holy Land, he said. 'Holy Status Quo' The free-swinging professor, who has more than once been referred to in his land as an "enfant terrible," assailed the tendency of some Christian leaders in Israel to be "big establishment, ecclesiastical administrators," concerned primarily with ecclesiastical politics and holding on to their rights. "How can an ordinary Israeli obtain an image of Christianity from them? They testify not to the Holy Spirit but to the holy status quo," he said. Such churchmen, Prof. Werblowsky continued, give the impression to outsiders that "the essence of Christianity is to preserve the holy places.", He said divisions within the Christian church are "more glaring in Jerusalem than elsewhere and the rivalry much stronger," in part because of the continuing quarrels over which Christian group is to control the holy places. "We are exposed to the unedifying spectacle of constant bickering," which, he explain~d, "creates a climate of misunderstanding and inability to catch up with what the Christian witness could mean in that place."

BLACKBURN (NC)-A survey carried out in England's Anglican diocese of Blackburn indicates that the majority of Anglican lay people believe that the initiative for reunion will have to come from the Catholic Church. About 2,000 questionnaires were distributed throughout the diocese by the diocese's committee for Church Unity. Although a litt.le over 1,000 replies were received, only 854 could be used for statistical purposes. Commenting on the results, Anglican Father Hugh M. Pollard, principal of St. Martin's College, Lancaster, who is responsible 'for the survey, said: "The replies from the questionnaire indicated a growing impatience on the part of lay people with moves toward unity. While reunion with the Roman Catholic church was regarded as a necessity by something less than half of the sample, a major'ity felt that union was not only desirable but possible. "For the most part, however, ,the respondents believed that the initiaUve would have to come eventually from the Roman Catholic church." As a result of these findings it was decieded to extend the survey to lay people in the Catholic church. At present, an additional 2,000 questionnaires are being distributed among the Catholic laity' in the Roman Catholic Salford and Lancaster 'dioceses.

Laity' Sh~uld Participate In Missionary Vocation "Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, and behold, I am with you all days, till the consummati'on of the world." , , . (St. Matthew: Chal?t. 28, verse 19,) Beloved in Christ: Next Sunday is Mission Sunday. Pope Pa~l calls on· all the faithful to rally in support of missionary-minded me~nd women, at home and in far-flung fields. He reminds us that God does not will that our Faith be lock~d up in our hearts. "No category of Christians can exempt itself from the missionary vocation., For the Lord wills to spread His kingdom by means of the laity, also." (Vatican II, Constitution on the Church, # 36) "EverY..,Christian must open his soul to the Holy Spirit. The whole Cathol~c Community must be convinced of the need to spread the Faith. Each and every member of the Church must be afire with missionar.y zeal." So speaks" our Holy Father. He urges" every one o~ us to supplement 'the work of missionary apostles an(l bring all mankind to the knowledge, love and serv~ce of God, through Christ Our Lord. Our day is marked by friendly exchange between members of different denominations. But this does not mean we have no further obligation to preach the Gospel by word and deed. Quite the contrary ! Like it or not, our, actions are construed to indicate .loyalty or disloyalty to what we profess to believe.. There are no two ways about this. "He that is not with Me, is against Me," said the Lord. Each day, at Holy Mass, we pray with the priest to "become one body, one spirit with Christ." But Christ prays that all may be one, in Him, for the Glory of the Father. He wills that all men be brought to the knowledge, and love of the True Faith and so be saved. No one, is so insignificant that he cannot be an instrument of God's Will. So we must all be disposed to accept the grace of the moment and rise to the point of 'using it. St. Paul~s conversion came with the words: "Lord what would yo~ have me do ?" His .complete fervor made him the great Apostle for' the Gentiles. St. Therese of Lisieux )Jecame' the Saint. of the Missions by prayer. Material support for missionaries began mooestly in 'Lyons, Frarice, througn. the interest of one woman, a member of the laity. We are all urged to carryon, in the best tradition of Catholic conscience, through prayer for the spread of the Faith, bringing peace and harmony throughout this mixed-up world of ours. I strongly emphasize the need our missionary representatives have, not merely for self-support, but more particularly to be helped in their ministrations to children of God in hovels and slums, at home and abroad. While it is true our nation has always helped the missionary generously,-it is none the less true that fifty or more times the measure of our contributions are spent on luxuries. : So I beg f,Or the, missions. I hope and pray that the level of giving' be realistic, having in m~nd the grave requirements for existence of those who live in the shadows of ignorance and superstition, and the strange indulgences that keep becoming necessities for those living ~iin the land of the free and the home of the brave." , Let us be brave enough to make sacrifices. Let us ,be ' free to the point of doing for God, and neighbors in need. Trusting that all will register their living Faith, on Sunday, October 19th, by giving generously for the Propagation " of the Faith, I remain"

CCD Attendance Continued from Page One Planning for advanced followup courses to be given in later semesters is now being conducted by the CCO priests. Media Workshops Also new this year are workshops in media techniques for elementary and high school CCO, teachers. "Media for the Chris· tian Message" is offered for elementary teachers at Fall River and New Bedford. A similar workshop course for high school religion teachers is being held in the Taunton area.

Family Living Provided for Teen'agers At Three Fall River Houses By Patricia McGowan One boy has a banner in his room. It reads "Home Sweet Home." That about sums

up the feelings of 15 teenagers, "graduates" of St. Vincent's Home, Fall River, who're living in three houses in the city under conditions as closely as possible approximating family life. There's a comfortable old brown house on New Boston Road and a newly painted white building on ' June Street for the boys, eight "uncles." One of the high house? "One elderly lady who h'l h .

Education Parley

Brains and' Hunger

Continued from 'Page One and Secondary Education, U. S. Office of Education. An extended session has been scheduled for examining the school religion program with speakers assigned to treat "attacks on religion programs" and the "determination of texts:" Father James T.' McHugh, Director of the U. S. Catholic Conference Family Life Division, will discuss "Sex Education: A National Overview." Discussions on instructional television will range' from problems surrounding restructuring of the curriculum to the cost of installing and operating TV equipment. NCEA and USCC personnel will be join'ed by representatives of the U. S. Office of Education in presenting current information on Government activity in nonpublic education. ' Msgr. William M. Roche, of Rochester, N. Y., President of the NCEA School Superintendents' Department, and Msgr. Thomas W. Lyon, Washington, Chairman of the USCC Association of Superintendents, will preside at in: dividual sessions of the two groups. New Officers will be elected during the upcoming sessions. ' , Directing arrangements for the meeting is Father John F. Myers, Executive Secretary of the NCEA Superintendents' Department.

The Holy See's observer ,to the U;nited Nation~ Food and Agricultural Organization,Msgr. Ligutti, has pointed out that many leaders, including those in the FAO, beli'eve that hunger in the world is not caused by population' 'increase. It is bro.ught about by a' refusal by man to 'use what he has at his disposal. Msgr. Ligutti said that the rich landowner must! become social minded and that the farmer himself must learn . how to get the maximum from the land he has. Improvement must be made in the prod~ction of protein foods ~md , hybrid crops and waste must be eliminated. It is estimated that some insects destroy in a single year food production ' equal to the entire State of Rhode Island. The ocean has hardly been touched as a source l of food and yet an acre of ocean contains far more protein than an acre of land. Man alr~ady has within his knowledge the, 'mean~ of increased production. He already, has the means to produce more an<~ better food. A FAO study of a few years ago said that the earth could support-with means now known . -a population of sixty billion persons. ., So the problem is with man. He must, use the me~ns he has and teach these to others. He must, work the earth so that it will produce. He must increase the quality of the knowledge he has and help others to do the same. He must, as Msgr. Ligutti said, initiate a "ma~ reform" so t~at he can, in turn, bring about a "land reform." , the meantime, there are empty stomachs. And so agencies, both church _and governmental, must funnel thro~gh to the hungry food and medicine and means'to survive. They must teach the poor how to produce the .. ST.

Avers Churches' Appraisal of UN Is Realistic

THE ANCHOR-Thurs., Oct. 16, 1969

Knights to Fight Immoral Laws

UNITED NATIONS (NC)

-"The majority of religious organizations have been em· inently realistic in their appraisal of the United Nations," Msgr. George Higgins told United Nations delegates, secretariat members and others gathered to pray for the success of the current session of the UN General Assembly. The occasion was a Mass at the Holy Family Church, at which the principal celebrant was Coadjutor Archbishop John J. Macguire of New York. Religious organizations publicly have endorsed the UN, Msgr. Higgins continued, "not as a perfect organization, but at least as a step, a very important step, in the right direction." He said some UN critics seem to argue from the hidden premise that international order can be established and peace maintained "by the ideal implementation of disembodied moral principles in an ideal world organization." Many religious-minded men and women in the United States and in other countries, seem at present to be cynical about the UN or to have lost interest in the organization, said the monsignor, who is director of the division for urban life, U. S. Catholic Conference. Calling for a patient attempt to exorcise the evil and enervating spirit of cynicism and defe'atism in the field of international relations, Msgr. Higgins said the U. S. Catholic bishops have taken a consistently realistic attitude toward the UN since 1945. "They recognize the necessity of institutional reform side by side with individual moral reform," he said, "and they are sufficiently patient to bear manfully with the fact that institutional reform, in the nature of things, is almost inevitably a discouragingly slow process." Msgr. Higgins paid special tribute in his sermon to those who negotiated the treaty on the non-proliferation of nuclear weap~ns. They deserve, he said the SlOcere thanks of a world which is sick unto death of war. "They haven't been able to ~liminate war or to bring about lOstant peace, but, as (the Second) Vatican Council's Pastoral Constitution on the Church in the Modern World points out their 'efforts 0:0 * 0:0 to eliminat~ the danger of war are not to be underrated,' " he said.

Open Catechetical Pastoral Institute DUNDALK (NC) - Ireland's first Catechetical 'and Pastoral Institute, planned in the spirit of the Second Vatican Council to train "true communicators of the word of God," has opened here with a first class of 50 priests, Sisters and laity. The institute offers a' full-time 33-week course that is divided into three terms. There is a central staff of seven teachers, supplemented by 30 visiting lecturers. Sessions are held at the Mt. Oliver convent of the Franciscan Missionary Sisters for Africa here. William Cardinal Conway of Armagh, whose ecclesiastical province is sponsoring the program, said at opening ceremonies that those who teach the Gospel m~ssage today are challenged to have a profound and authentic understanding of that message.

The commission members who met in Washington this past week, are reported to be considering whether children a:e affected by pcrtrayal of violence ,in the communications media, particularly on television.

Adult Education' Has 'Ecumenical Flavor Program Shows WASHINGTON (NC). If you're interested in taking an adult education course at the Towson School of Theology thfs Fall, send a registration request and a $5 fee to Father' Brian Rafferty, dean of the school and associate pastor of Immaculate Conception Church in Towson, Md. The request will be sent to the Towson United Methodist church, where members of the congregation will give it careful attention. Th"e $5 will be forwarded to Herbert Rutherford, a retired banker who is a tre~­ surer of the school. Rutherford, an Episcopalian, frequently attends Mass at Immaculate Conception. Duly enrolled, you'll find a wide variety of subjects to choose from including a course on Judaism taught by eight rabbis an~Jewish lay leaders, and a series on the Catholic Church with Lawrence Cardinal Shehan of Baltimore as one of the lecturers. Ecumenical Reality Father Rafferty is fond of citing the school's registration procedure, as well as its diversified program and multi-religious staff of 20, as "concrete evidence that congregations can cooperate, and not just now and then." - The five congregations which have been cooperating for some three years now to make adult religious education an ecumenical reality in this old, established Baltimore suburb are: Towson Methodist, Immaculate

-Prelates Decry Pressur'e Groups PARIS (NC) - The permanent council of the French' Bishops' Conference has said that use, of pressure groups and appeals to public opinion ate not the way to solve problems' relating to the Church and the priesthood. A communique published by the permanent council said: "It is not by thoughtless appeals to public opinion nor by the action of pressure groups that questions relating to the Church and the priesthood will be resolved." The communique confirmed that the next plenary assembly of the French bishops, to be held in November at Lourdes, will deal with basic pastoral units and priestly teams, authority and coresponsibility in the Church, and the material life of the Church and of priests. At the same, the communique said, the assembly will "take stock of the study under way on the motivations of celibacy and the conditions of its exercise." The communique stressed the necessity for fidelity to the Gospel and asked that the Lourdes meeting be "a time of conversion, --a moment of common spiritual experience." The communique also declared: "The world does not need a Church which reveals to it only itself. It awaits from the Church a revelation of the unique God."

Cooperate

follow-up to a local ministerial meeting at which, according to Father Rafferty, the assembled clergymen decided they did not want to simply "shoot the breeze, but to get together and do something as churches which might be financially and practically difficult to do individually." "When we put the school together, we were thinking not so much of doctrine but of subjects which would be of interest to any concerned person, and then getting the best qualified persons available to teach the courses," he said. The program has been, by all accounts, a resounding success both promoting good will and raising the general educational level of the community. The modest tuition fee paid by the students (about 400 are expected this year) has· covered all the school's expenses, so no financial burden has been placed on the sponsoring churches. Programs such as the one in Towson ought to be fairly common in an education conscious, post-Vatican II age, but there is some evidence they are often more talked about than done. Father Rafferty.is probably correct in asserting that the Towson school of theology "is something of a first."

GLASGOW (NC)-The 20,000member Knights of St. Columba society (KSC) has launched a drive to combat legislation considered to be ~l threat to social morality. The lay organization, which was initiated here in Scotland in 1919, has concluded its annual conference in this city. Growing concern over legislation in Britain, actual or proposed, on abortion, divorce and euthanasia prompted the KSC to undertake a program of "action committees" to guard against new laws which erode accepted moral standards. Charles Donnelly, headmaster of the KSC, told newsmen here during the organization's golden jubilee celebrations that the action committees will be set up in all British electoral constituencies and will contact the local members of parliament. He stressed that in their activities the committees will be "positive -not just opposing the bad but praising the good in proposed legislation." The committees, he said, are encouraged to seek the cooperation of other Christian churches and groups, Jews and individuals concerned with basic social morality.

New Community To Stress Liturgy STEUBENVILLE (NC)-Bishop John King Mussio of Seubenville has granted, permission for an experimental community of men who cal1 themselves "Little Servants of the Most Holy Trinity" to begin here in Ohio. The new religious group proposes to live a contemplative life, with some active expression, and to stress the liturgy following the suggestion of Vatican Council II. The community, headed by Father Francis J. Marino, S.M., founder, pays special homage to Mary as "Mother of the Church," with special emphasis given to her role in the liturgy. Father Marino is also' cofounder of a women's community in the .diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend, Ind. The "Handmaids of the Most Blessed Trinity" are also consecrated to "Our Lady of the Liturgical Life."

Urges Pastors Form Counci.ls

THE ANCHOR-Diocese of Foil River-Thurs., Oct. 16, 1969· . ,

Says T'od!ay's Kids' Better' .

BOSTON (NC)-Richard Cardinal Cushing of Boston has urged pastors in the archdiocese for the third tIme in two years to form parish councils in their parishes as quickly as possible. Cardinal Cushing, in a letter to more than 400 parishes in the archdiocese, told the pastors that formation of the councils is "a matter of the gresatest urgency." Thomas M. Simmons, Boston attorney, who is chairman of the archdiocsean commission for, the· promotion of parish councils, said only a quarter of the area's parishes have a functioning council. Cardinal Cushing wrote that if a "spirit of cooperation and responsibility is to grow in the archdiocese of Boston, every parish must be vitally involved in the task. An indispensable element in this effort on the local level is the founding of parish councils. "In my letters of June 14, 1968 and Jan. 29, 1969, I made clea; that I wanted every parish '" in the archdiocese to have a council, composed of laity, Religious and clergy, which, will be actively concerned with parochial life. At this time I wish to repeat this pastoral directive, for it is a matter of the greatest urgency."

Behaved at Hallo,w,een By Joseph and Marilyn Roderick As we approach Halloween I can't help but think back to my own youth and feel pleased that the childr~n of today are so much better behaved than we were. W:hen I was a boy, Halloween meant one thing. Tricks. I am sorry to say that the tricks were neither clever nor amusing. cider, are the traditional food for Halloween. I don't know if all children Good Intentions were the same but the boys While very few of us have the in my neighborhood'looked upon Halloween as the perfect time to repay all the slights and wrongs, real or imagined, that adults had tortured us with duro, ing the year. It was the time to wax every window in sight, let the air out of countless tires, upset garbage ~ans, stone street lights, break windows and do every imaginable wrong. There was no great joy in any of this but we as children I thought it was the thing to do and that we were justified in our vendetta: Not every family was so treated. We had a code. There 'were good adults who were left untouched, but these were the , exception rather than the rule. It's Better Today Now it rather amuses me to see those same adults who were . the objects of our wrath refuse to open their doors to today's little Trick or Treaters. Surely they remember what Halloweens were like 25 years ago.

Appo.int Jesuit City University Vice-Chancellor--NEW YORK (NC) - Fr. Timothy S. Healy, S.J., former executive vice-president of Fordham University, was named vice-chancellor for academic affairs at the City University of New York here. The appointment of the priest, the first to serve in so high a post here, was made by the executive committee of the city's Board of Higher Education. Henry D. paley, City University's director of university relations, said Chancellor Albert H. Bowker, who had been authorized by the Board of Higher Education to establish a vicechancellorship for academic affairs, had recommended Father Healy's appointment to the $32,000-a-year post on the basis of his achievements in education, partiCularly in the area of ,education of minority groups. Paley said the board had approved the appointment after studying Father Healy's credentials and without discussion of his priestly office. Reformed Curricula Noting that'the post was newly created, Father Healy said its responsibilities had not been fully defined. He said since executive authority was vested in Chancellor Bowker, he would serve as counselor to the chancellor on such important problems as organizing remedial studies that would be required to impl~ment next year's open enrollment policy. Discussing that policy, Father Healy said "to attempt less would be immoral." To diminish the value of a City University degree, he said, "would be a fraud." . As executive vice-president of Fordham, Father Healy, 46, was credited with opening the doors to black and Puerto Rican students. He also reformed the undergraduate curricula;' sponsored a full-scale legal study of a Catholic university, and helped revise Fordham's administrative structure and codes. . 'Greatest Challenge' In 1968, he took a leave of absence from Fordham to try to establish a private non-sectarian liberal arts college in New York's Harlem sector, or in Brooklyn's Bedford-Stuyvestant section, but was unable to raise the necessary capital. Explaining why he accepted the City University offer, Father Healy said "I don't expect to, work any miracles. The City University is where the greatest challenge is to be found, but also the greatest wealth of skills." The priest' said he had the "full encouragement" and approval of his superior, Father Robert A. Mitchell, S.J., provincial of the Je!juits' New York province, to accept the City University's offer. He also said no canonical dispensations were required to accept the post.

ST. LOUIS (NC)- Immediate arms limitation. talks between the United States and the Soviet Union leading to "effective steps in de-escalating the arms race" were called for by Christian Church leaders of the two countries following four days of closed talks here. The churchmen expressed "hope that such talks will convene imminently" in a statement released on the conclusion of a Consultation on Christian Concern for the Limiation and Reduction of Arms. The statement was signed by Orhtodox Bishop Vladimir Juvenaly, head of an eight-man Russian delegation to the talks; Msgr. Marvin Bordelon, director, Division of .World Justice and Peace, United States Catholic .Conference; and Dr. Robert S. Bilheimer, director, Department of International Affairs, National Council of Churches (NCC). The statement said that the consultation participa,nts unanimously agreed that "arms limitation is essential as a step toward the ultimate goal of general and complete disarmament." It said . the "predominant themes" of the meeting were the "profound Christian concern motivating the participants in their pursuit of international peace," and the acknowledgement of the threat which mankind faces from nuclear annihilation. "The common conviction among the group," it continued, "was the absolute folly of thinking that continuing the spiraling arms race is a means of achieving world peace or even national security."

AOH Announces

THE ANCHORThurs., Oct. 16, 1969

Drive to Assist Irish Catholics

Hits Mass Media News Programs

NEWARK (NC)-William Cardinal Conway of Armagh, Northern Ireland, will be in charge of the disbursement of .funds being raised in the United States to help Catholics in his country. This was revealed here by Michael L. Delahunty, national president of the Ancient Order of Hibernians, on his return from a three-week fact-finding trip to Ireland. The AOH has announced a drive to raise $1 million for the relief of victims of recent rioting in Northern Ireland and Delahunty will head the drive. He said that it will be conducted by a professional fund-raising organization and that the honorary chairman in the U. S. will be Archbishop Thomas A. Boland of Newark, national AOH chaplain. 20,000 Homeless Delahunty, 42, is a native of Ireland who is in his second year as president of the AOH. He views the fund drive as an opportunity for the organization to "prove itself." "I was dumbstruck when I saw the conditions," Delahunty said in an interview with the Advocate, Newark archdiocesan weekly, after his return. "There are over 20,000 people homeless," he said, adding: "It was hard to believe; to see the fear of the people; to see soldiers on street corners with bayonets drawn." . He said that he talked to one· civil rights leader who had to flee his home when it was raked by bullets and that he had been told that police stopped fire brigades from putting out fires .. Big Needs Delahunty said that his organization intended to raise money for the relief of all victims of the rioqing, whether Catholic or Protestant. But he said that he doubted there would .be much need among the Protestant population because a drive being conducted for them in Northern Ireland had already reached close to $1 million before he left the country. He said the AOH campaign will run for seven weeks and is designed to help provide housing and employment assistance. These are the big needs, he said. He told of visiting a refugee camp in the Republic of Ireland where some 1,500 people from the North are being cared for. While their immediate needs are being met, he said, the people are anxious to return to their homes and get their children back in school. Asked about the disbursal of funds already given by American Catholics, Delahunty said that he was unable to learn of any American money having yet reached the Catholics.

Schools Have Black Studies Program BROOKLYN (NC)-The Brooklyn Catholic School Office has begun a program of black studies designed to COvtl.f black culture and history, its roots and impact on the American community. The series will also be taped by the Brooklyn Diocesan Educational Television network for later transmission to all diocesan elementary schools. The school office is also exploring the possibilities of distributing the series in print or television format to other interested school systems and groups.

CHICAGO (NC) - A stinging attack on radio and television news presentations was delivered by Chicago's Mayor Richard J. Daley at a meeting here recently of the Catholic Lawyers Guild of Chicago. Mayor Daley said electronic news media portray events "often at the expense of editorial judgment;" that: coverage is fragmentary, permitting events to be judged out of context; that issues are presented in their extremes, and that "stress on the emotional content of issues adds to the polarization of attitudes." , Though Mayor Daley's comments about news coverage were aimed at radio and TV, he also referred to coverage in the print media, though indirectly: "The extreme, the bizarre, the violent, the most theatrical presentations are offered to viewers and readers because they are moving and dramatic." The Mayor, went on to say: "Television has proved time and again its great potential for bringing events into the home as they occur, often at the expense of editorial judgment. It presents fragments of events as the whole. The law could not permit in a courtroom a statement taken out of context to be entered into evidence - even though the statement is true. "One of the primary ways that television and radio have sought to be objective," he continued, "is to present opposite sides of an issue. Often, however, these v,iews are voices of extremes. For example, one may wonder at the balance or the wisdom of a discussion on a moratorium on the death penalty when one of the participants is situated in death row." Later, the Mayor mentioned Thomas Jefferson who, he said "advised us of the necessity for an informed public-not an entertained public." o

Name Lay.men to Distribute Communion Vatican Congregation Grants Privilege TOLEDO (NC) - Two laymen have been selected to distribute Holy Communion at Masses in a one-priest parish in the Toledo diocese. The privilege of enlisting qualified members of the laity to. perform such a service was obtained .by Bishop John A. Donovan of Toledo from the Vatican Congregation of the Sacraments. The permission extends for three years. Diocesan officials said its language is sufficiently broad to include women. of the laity, but added it is-unlikely women will be selected.

Florida Lawmaker Reaches First Goal MIAMI (NC) - Florida's first Negro legislator since 1880 has accomplished his first goal since election last year, the formation of a State Commission in Human Relations. ' Joseph Lang Kershaw, also is the first black member of the Miami Knights of Columbus Council, and is a member of Corpus Christi parish. here. He was named a member of the new commission "to help people to get to know one another," following its establishment. He was graduated from Xavier University, New Orleans and has been a, teacher for the past 25 years in Florida.

Bin their service, they will be given a course of instruction and will be honored at a ceremony in the Cathedral' of the Blessed Virgin of the Holy Rosary. No date for the ceremony has been scheduled. The bishop said laymen will be selected to distribute Communion at five or six parishes in the diocese. He said the privilege granted by the Vatican congregation helps to meet one of the most difficult problems faced by priests in one-priest parishes. Under conditions of the privilege granted the persons selected must be selected by their pastors and approved by the bishop; they are permitted to distribute

Says Bishop's Role Witness of Christ, , CINCINNATI (NC)-Archbishop Paul F. Leibold spoke of the bishop's role as "witness of Christ to all men" in a sermon at Mass' following his installation here as seventh' Ordinary of the 148-year-old Cincinnati See. Archbishop Leibold, 54-yearold native of Dayton, Ohio, and former bishop of Evansville, Ind., succeeds Archbishop Karl J. Alter, who announced 'his retirement July 23 after 19 years as archbishop of Cincinnati. The new archbishop, former chancellor and auxiliary bishop of Cincinnati, described his "program for the archdiocese of Cincinnati" in' these terms: "Bish-·· ops, priests, Religious, laityworking as one with complete loyalty to our Holy Father as the Vicar of Christ on earth, serving as witnesses to Christ, indeed as saints, for our common call is to holiness."

Communion only during Mass; there must be a real need for such service in a parish before the permission is exercised. First diocese to obtain such a permission was Erie, Pa., where a layman was appointed to assist the chaplain of a state school and hospital in Polk, Pa. The permission was granted last February.Since that time several other dioceses with priest-shortage problems have obtained the permission.

Increase Non-State School Assistance SYDNEY (NC)-Increases in assistance for non-state schools, promised by New South Wales state Premier Robin Askin in his pre-election policy statements, are included in the state budget. The annual per capita allowance for primary pupils in nonstate schools will rise from $24 to $30 during fiscal year 196970. The allowance for secondary pupils will be increased from $28 to $34. The allowance is paid to the parents, but with the parents' consent may be paid directly to the schools.

Fairhaven Youngster Shows' Gratitude To Grandmother; Shares. Contest Prize David Doucette of Fairhaven is a miniature 'millionaire.' He got that way by mail. Several months ago, Mrs. Louis Doucette of 326 Washington St., Fairhaven, a parishioner of St. Joseph's Church, bought "Footsee" toys for her 12 grandchildren. David, 7, is one. With each of the "footsee" toys was a coupon. Mrs. Doucette filled them out in the names of her grandchildren and stuck them in the mail box. That would have been all there was to it, as is usually the case, except that young David ended up a grand prize winner in the nationwdie drawing of coupons. What did he win? "Do you want to know all the things?" asked Albert L. Doucette of 10 Narragansett Ave., Fairhaven, David's father. Getting an 'affirmative, he rattled off: "A piggy bank with 100,000 pennies-'They asked if we'd mind having a check instead and . we didn't mind at alL' "A small color television set. "A bicycle with David's monogram. "A radio. "A Spidell identification bracelet. "A Swinger camera. "A phonograph. "A walkie-talkie. "A typewriter." At the end of the list, Mr. Doucette was out of breath. "He was thrilled," the happy father says of his son's reaction to the winning news. "He couldn't believe it. The next morning he woke up and said, "Daddy, are you sure I won all that stuff?'" David's first visit after being notified of the bonanza that was his was to his grandmother's house next door. "He kissed his grandmother and thanked her," Mr. Doucette says. Then David settled down in a small boy rut of happiness. "As a token, he gave his grandmother $500 of the money," Doucette said. In between 1st Grade' classes at the East Fairhaven School and catechism classes at St. Joseph's Wednesday afternoons, he's been

Money for Liquor, Smokes Outstrips Public ,Housing By Barbara 'Ward In earlier columns we have looked at the 'way in which the concentration of poverty chiefly within one particular group can have a virulent and viole.nt effect upon the ~?ole 'community. Sometimes the group IS separated by rehgl~us differences. One of the roots of the tragic riots in North- management and labor, it means willing compliance with regulaern Ireland is the fact that tions which open up employment the Catholic citizens of Ul- apprenticeship.

ster have long been the least paid, worst housed and most disa d van tag e d .. :"" members of society. Sometimes the gap is ra- ' cial, as between town-bred Ma,lays and their more commercially successful fellow citizens of Chinese stock. But in North America, the local version of this almost universa difficulty is, obviously, the high concentration of poverty among black citizens. Their presence at the bottom of every ladder-of housing, of schooling, of jobs:-, is not only it cause of bitter an~ guish for them., ' It is also a cause of fear and hence 'of hatred among the , groups who are just climbing up the ladder from deep poverty and feel that competition for still scarce houses, jobs and good teaching will endanger their chances. As with the "petit Blancs" in Algeria in the 1950s white urban citizens of small means tend to be most hostile to their colored fellow citizens. Shrivel Intentions What can' be done? No one supposes that men. can be made into 'virtuous neighbors simply by public policy. The profound importance of educating the young so that they accept and love all the diversities of God's. creation is precisely to build consciences which work personally towards generosity and good will. But we ~ll know that social pressures can shrivel private good intentions. If, in the case of racial or religious conflict, there really is a very great shortage of houses" schools and jobs - and hence of incqme - then the resentment of the really ,under-privileged and the fears of those beginning to' enjoy a little privilege can shatter the basis of social order. The Ulster crisis is, no doubt, more complicated than this. But resentment and counter-fear is one of the vital elements underlying the troubles. It follows that a Christian citizen confronting -.:.. as does the Christian citizen in the United States - the fact' of profound concentrations of poverty among black Americans and profound fear and prejudice among some white Americans, must be ready to support ambitious public policies designed to reduce the external pressures of a biased and despairing environment. In concrete- terms, this means support for President Nixon's courageous proposals to put a safety net of guaranteed income below every family. It means pressure on members of Congress to vote for and not against, money for housing and for greater suuport to schools. At the local level, it, means voting for and not against bond issues for education and urban betterment. In the context of

Explains Retreat Movement Aims ST. PAUL (NC) - The newly appointed episcopal moderator called on National Catholic Laymen's Retreat Conference members at a meeting here to be leaders "in the prayer life, liturgy and theology cif the Catholic Church." Auxiliary Bishop Joseph M. Breitenbeck of Detroit, speaking to a NCLRC boara of directors meeting said the retreat movement must "in some way zero in on the critical problems of today." Bishop Breitenbeck suggested bringing in expert advisers. He said: "We've got a product to sell, and we've got to merchandise it by bringing in people who are highly qualified in the prayer life, liturgy and theology !>f the Church." The bishop likened the retreat movement to the business world -"only with a different set of problems." The bishop said Catholic dogma hasn't changed, but the approach to making it better understood and "more relevant" had changed. He challenged the NCLRC to bring in the experts in an effort to help the retreat houses of America. He spoke approvingly of the efforts of many young people on various college campus locations, who were doing "tremendous things for Christ," and were showing many of their elders the way in prayer, liturgy and participation joyfully in the good news of salvation.

Among the ~itnesses was Dr. William Mara, who teaches philosophy at Fordham University and has' been actively campaigning against sex eduction in New Jersey. He claimed sex education could be psychologically damaging when imparted to children below the fifth grade. Sex and morality are indivisible, he said, but it is not possible to teach morality in public schools. Another witness was Dr. Carl McIntyre; fundamentalist minister and frequent critic of the Catholjc Church. In.testimony heavily laced with scriptural quotations, he charged that sex eduaction is a reflection of materialism, unbelief and godlessness in American society. ELECTRICAL

Miss Godden's Novel Finely Articulated Piece of Art

02722.

By Rt. Rev. Msgr. John S. Kennedy One might suppose it difficult, if not impossible, to write a dramatic novel of almost 400 pages about a convent of Benedictine nuns. But that astute and accomplished artist Rumer Godden, has done so in her latest book, In This House of Brede (Viking, 625 Madison Ave., New York, even at its obvious and most tenacious roots. There is a total N.Y. 10022 $6.95), a choice giving to be accomplished, and of the Book-of-the-Month the natural tendency is to' hold Club. Brede Abbey is the ancient religious house of her imagining, in Sussex. A ,priory of the Canons of St. Augustine be~ fore the Refol'mation, it had passeo into the hands of the Hartshorn family upon the Protestant suppression. After two and a half centuries it reverted to religious w en a community of English Benedictine nuns long exiled in France was driven from that country in the Revolution and came home to England. Brede, then, is rich in tradition, and one of these is the succession of remarkable women who have held the office of Mother Abbess.. The occupant, as the novel opens, is Dame Hester Cunning-. ham Proctor, 85, ruler of Brede for 32 years. Before becoming a nun, Dame Hester was a sculptress of some renown, and her visitors at Brede include a variety of distinguished people, who like her nuns, recognize her exceptional quality. Main Theme It is she who receive Philippa Talbot, an unlikely candidate in the eyes of some in the abbey. Philippa is 42, a widow, ,a woman who has held a high and re:;ponsible position in the civil service, with prospects of further advancement. . . She is good-looking, well dressed, unusually competent, and almost extravagantly admired. Her associates are stunned when she tells them of her decision to become a nun. Until a few years ago, she had been a freethinker. Her conversion came about in a way unpredictable and eyencasual-seeming. She had not flaunted her religion. The making of Philippa into an authentic religious is the main theme of Miss Godden's novel. This means far more than leaving her foriner place and conforming meticulously to the rule at Brede. There is unmaking to be done, the pulling. up of selfishness' o

Cardinal Urges Halt To Arms Supply LONDON (NC)-John Cardinal Heenan has again urged the great powers to halt the supply of arms to Nigeria and Biafra in an effort to stop the war between the two African parties. The cardinal spoke at a Mass in Westminister Cathedral attended by over 200 Nigerians and others favoring peace in Nigeria. Cardinal Heenan denied that either he or Pope Paul VI had taken sides in. the Nigerian war. He said it is easy to see how the impression was created, but added that "the impression is false." .

something back. The stages of Phillipa's transformation are sensitively· perceived and precisely conveyed by the novelist. This is a complex history; both of which are gradually revealed to Philippa herself and to the reader. . ' . No quick change is wrought, because such does not happen in life. And no romantic aura is suggested, because' the work of love is hard and unsentimental. If Philippa and the drama of her development are the central strand of the novel, they are by no means its whole substance. For example, there is Brede. itself, about which Miss Godden writes in rich detail and with loving regard. . We come to know well the buildings, .ancient and recent, and the grounds.

Rehabilitation Ends In Czechoslovakia BONN (NC)-The "rehabilitation" of clergy and Religious convicted under .the former Stalinist-line communist regime in Czechoslovakia is at an end, it has been learned here. Under the more liberal policies of Alexander Dubcek after he took over the government of Antonin Novotny in 1968, many priests and members of Religious orders were cleared of charges unde'r which they were sentenced to prison terms by the Novotny regime. . In announcing the end of "rehabilitation" trials in the courts, the organ of the Czechoslovakia Community party, Rude Pravo, contenQ.ed that the courts undertaking to clear the clergy and Relgious of the former charges found miscarriages of justice in only a few cases.

The prisoner never reached his home - enroute he gave Father Rivet the slip. "I went to the phone and called the warden," Father Rivet , related "I told him I had lost . his prisoner. The warden told me to forget it, just to cQme back in. They picked tip' the guy 12 hours after he got away."

rupt" power structures in the Catholic Church elicited a sharp rebuttal from the presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church at the start of an unprecedented religious conference here in Wisconsin. In one of five position papers at the three-day conference on the Relevancy of Organized Religion and an Agenda for the future, Dr. Davis urged that the "laity, priests and bishops must actively rebel against the present structure, demythologize it and break its hold." He said "a key problem" for Catholicism is the authority of the Pope which "must be decisively and finally repudiated." Dr. Davis's verbal assault on failures of Roman Catholicism and institutional religion gener: ally were answered by Episcopal Bishop John E. Hines who described himself as "distressed at the sweeping nature of the indictment" by Dr. Davis, now professor of religious studies at the Universit.y of Alberta in Edmonton, Alta. God final Judge The theologian's attack on the papacy was made o'n the same day that Pope Paul VI, speaking to 30 theologians convened in Rome prior to the world Synod of Bishops, rejected the concept that he does not have the exclu· 'sive right to rule the whole Church. Bishop Hines served as a reactor to the Davis position paper. , Christianity, he said, operates through "a fallible, weak, faulty church" which, "despite its clay 'feet, God has undertaken to use to offer man a way by which his brokenness can be made wholeness." "Such a church should never be afraid to hear criticism of its weakness and defects. The final judgment lies with God," he said.
