After having discussed the role of the Church in general, the work of the Bishops, the advisability of a permanent deaconate, etc. the Bishops turned their at­ tention to the lay membership in the structure of the Church.

He is Church so as to sanctify the a teacher in that he is to be a world from within. The layman cannot only passively posses the faith or receive instruction. He has an active role to play in the life of the Church. Sanctified by Baptism and t:onfirmation, he does share in the three-fold office of Christ. He is, therefore, - like the Bishops - a priest, a teacher EProphet) and a ruler (king).

WASHINGTON (NC) - Religion - any religion - is up against a tough job in trying to erase the stamp of atheism impressed on Russian youth, an American priest held captive in the Soviet Union for 23 years said here. Father Walter M. Ciszek, yet though they do not S.J., held so long by the tions; believe, they yield in some cases Soviets that English almost to the influence of the older became a dead language for generation and have their chil­ him, gave a bleak picture of the Russian young people's attitude toward religion. Yet at the same time he depicted a tenacious older generation in Russia that will not let religious concepts flicker out. The 58-year-old Jesuit priest, a native of Shenandoah, Pa., was freed along with Marvin W. Makinen of Ashburnham, Mass., in a prisoner exchange in wh~ch the Soviets received Mr. and Mrs. Ivan Egorov, who were awaiting trial in the U.S. on espionage charges. "The older folk attend the few Orthodox churches that are open," Father Ciszek said. "The youths have no religious convic-

Conducts Retreats For High Schoolers ST. LOUIS (NC) - The St. Louis archdiocese has started a program of closed retreats that includes every high school stu­ dent in the archdiocese. Father William J. Lyons, head of the program, said that by next June some 10,000 pupils at­ tending the archdiocese's 10 interparochial high schools will have made a closed retreat. The program calls for fresh. men and sophomores to attend a one-day retreat, and juniors and seniors a two-day retreat.

dren baptized. Personal Aspects "Oh holidays, such as Easter, there are ceremonies that are widely attended, but the unbe­ lieving element participates only in the material side of the feast." The Jesuit priest said know­ ledge of the doctrinal aspects of religion, such as interpretation of the Bible by the Church, is very limited, especially among the young people of Russia. "They do not consider doc­ trine, but personal aspects, such as whether a priest is a drunk­

ard," he said. "The new genera­

tion believes that all priests lead

an easy life and draw money

from the people. They think re­

ligion is a camouflage for the

priest's efforts to exploit the peOPle." Constant Drive Father Ciszek said "there is a constant drive against religion by the state, so that the new man of the socialistic system may be developed, a man with an atheis­ tic basis." "The young' people have had no help toward religion," he added, "and they now are sO educated that they rebel against religious instructions." Father Ciszek said a good omen for religion in Russia is that "people visit the cemeteries, and most of the graves have crosses over them."

Defends School Loans Legal Adviser Says Limited Assistance

To Private Schools Constitutional

CAMBRIDGE (NC) The constitutionality of Federal loans which offer limited assistance to parochial and other private schools has been supported by thll minority counsel of the House Education Committee. Charles W. Radcliffe, legal ad­ vi!:er to Republicans on the com­ mittee and former legislative officer in the U. S. Office of Ed­ uc,ation, presents his argument in the current issue of the Har­ va:rd Educational Review. J:ladcliffe discusses one section of the 195& National Defense Ed­ uc;ation Act. This provides for 10··year interest-bearing Federal lmms to help purchase instruc­ tional equipment, other than textbooks, in science, mathemat­ ic!: .and modern foreign lan­ guages. Public schools get out­ right grants for the same purpose. . The attorney defends these

loans as a proper fUDction of government in the interest of national defence. He says bene­ fit which may derive to religion is only incidental. Referring to decisions of the U. S. Supreme Court, Radcliffe says the test drawn from these rulings and applied to the loan program should be this: "Was it the primary purpose and effect of the legislation to

aid a parochial school, per sc, or was it to accomplish a broad and legitimate public purpoSe' in which the aid to the schools is a necessary incident?" Arguing that the intention clearly was to accomplish a pub­ lic purpose, Radcliffe compares this favorably to tax-paid bus rides and tax-paid textbooks in secular subjects for parochial pupils, both practices upheld by the Supreme ·Court.


menical council "much differ­ ent" from the first, Auxiliary .Bishop Timothy Manning of Los Angeles reported here. 'There is a far greater affinity betWeen the bishops," Bishop Manning said upon his return from Rome, where he took part in the opening ceremonies and initial assemblies of the second session. "They know one· an­ other better, they are not mere names to be recognized," he said of the bishops. "Now they are three-dimensioned personalities. "There is a tremendous spirit of fraternity among them which was not possible or so obvious among them before on short ac­ quaintance." Many of the speakers and their positions on various topics are now well known as a result of their writings, he said. "As a result, the second ses­ sion has been a great manifesta­ tion of fraternal congeniality," Bishop Manning said.. "Total joy prevails in the council, emanating from .the Holy Father himself. The heart and spirit of Pope John mantle him. One can sense that ver7 much in a private audience." .

HURLEY, chair­ man, St. Mary's Cathedral-"The manner in whi~h the people have been expressing their wishes for memorial gifts. is certainly indica­ tive that 1they certainly desire to memorialize their loved ones.

Pope to Preside at Beatification Of Father Dominic, Passionist

ROME (NC) - Dominic Bar. beri, whose whole life seemed pointed toward the reconversion of England to the Catholic Faith, becomes the newest blessed of the Church Sunday, the feast of ehrist the King. Pope Paul VI is officiating at the solemn rite of beatification in St. Peter's in the presence of bishops attending the ecumeni­ eal council, large delegations representing Father Barberi's fellow Passionists, and pilgri.m­ ages from the British Isles and lllorth America. One of the neglected heroes of the Church of the 19th e<en­ tury, Dominie Barberi usu~llly l'eceives only footnote-mention­ &bis is because it was he who re­ ceived John Henry Newman into the Catholie Church. Actually, Father Dominic's enly role in the future cardinal's

conversion was to hear New­ man's confession and to formally receive the Anglican theologian into the Church of Rome. That was on Oct. 9, 1845. previous day, Newman had written to an Anglican friend to say that "Father Dom­ inlc the Passionist" was corning that night to be his guest at Little­ more, near Oxford, and that he would seize on the occasion to ask to be received into the Cath­ oUc Church. Newman sa&. he wid seen Barberi only on'be­ fore, a year and a half earlier. Be went on to say of him: 'Very Holy Man' "He was a poor boy, who (I believe) kept sheep" near Rome and from his youth his thoughts have been most singularJy and distinctly turned to the conver­ sion of England. He is a shrewd clever man, but as unaffected and simple as a child; and most singularly kind in his thoughts of religious persons in our com­ munion. I wish all persons were as charitable as I know him to



"After waiting nearly 30 years, suddenly his superiors sent him to England, without any act of his own. However, he has not labored in conversions, but con­ fined himself to missions and re­ treats among his own people. I believe him to be a very holy

man." Newman's succinct account is now being verified publicly in the Church.

Catholic Interracial Conference Raps Attorney General's Stand CHICAGO (NC) - The Na­ tional Catholic Conference for Interracial Justice has sent President Kennedy a telegram protesting Atty. Gen.

"The" Attorney General's N!­ quest for weak .legislation is in. toler~ble at this stage in our American democracy," said the telegram, signed by conference" chairman Raymond M. Hiliard. The Attorney General, seeking bipartisan support for the legis­ lation, has asked the House Ju­ diciary Committee to strike out a section of the bill empower. ing him to file injunction suita to protect constitutional rights of all persons. He also asked that the broad public accommodations section be limited to specific problem categor.ies, such as restaurants, hotels and retail stores.

Death sentence for the 1(t­ ~r-old Knights of Columbus tournament, which was. res:trict­ ed to Catoolic teams, came when th e Washington archdi<K:esan education office appr()ved a new . Rt of rules for the Washington Metropolitan Catholic League designed to deemphasize Sl;lOr'ts, and to ban post.season games and tournaments. . I The action came as a surprise , to· K. of C. area units, a lIourna­ ·ment sponsm:, while. Bob- Dwyer, ~neral chairman, Gus Coupe-, tournament director, and a ,oom.­ mittee, were negotiating ar­ nngements for the next to\lrl1a­ ment planned for March, 1964. The Washington Catholic League is composed of six higJI. 8Chools in the Washington area. Each year the league champion and runner - up automatically won berths in the K. of C. 'rour­ aey, while six other/teams were llelected from various sections of tile country. New Roles Principals of the six area schools met a week ago and drew up the new regulations. The rules prohibit athletic scholar­ ships in "any guise"; set the length of pre·season practice; provide for a maximum. number of games in each sport-:tO in football, 24 in basketball, :La in baseball, and ban post.season pmes and tournaments. The policy concerning post-' lleason games came to a head last year when St. John's, the Catholic League champion" de­ feated Eastern,. public school champion, for the city focltbaU championship on Thanksgiving Day. The game was played be­ fore more than 50,000 persons. In D. C. Stadium. Large.scale aoting started by Eastern fol­ lowers broke out after the game hundreds were injured.

THE 5 Swamea Regis College Graduate J'olunteers Tlwr$.,. Oct. 24, 19'63 For Yea,: of Teaching in Kaneohe, Hawaii Suggests Church AN(HO~­

MltUreen Donovan of Our Lady of Fatima parish, Swansea, wag- home last weekend. NQthing remarkable about that? But Maureen dropped in from Kawaii, where shet's spending a year as a volunteer teacher at St. Ann's School, Kaneo-he, Oahu. Reason for the flying trip was the wedding last Saturday of a cousin, and sister Elaine, a seniOl' at the College of New Rochelle, in New Rochelle, N.Y. was home for the same happy reason-although she didn't have so far to travel. The pretty sisters are both mission minded. Maureen decided on her teaching year while she was a student at Regis. College, Weston, where Sisler John of the Eng,lish de­ partment has for years sponsored II volunteer teaching program among graduateft of Regis and' other Catholic colleges. Elaine is hoping to travel to Greece following her June grad­ uation. 'there she will teach at _ Ursuline high school.

said Maureen. One girl is with her in Hawaii and others are in Saipan, the Virgin Islands, Peru, Alaska and various of the south. ern and southeastern states of continental U.S.A. Life in Hawaii is very busy. Schoo-l start-sat 8, said Maureen, but since the cottage she shares with her fellow teachers is right on the playground, and children start arriving at 6:30, there's no sleep after that time. After school's end at 2:30 there

are lesson plans to prepare and homework to correct, she said. Saturday mornings are devoted to teaching a first communion class, Maureen loves Hawaii and her affection persists even though the island state is now in the midst 0( its torrential rainy season. Rain comes down "like 8 bathtub overflowing" for as much as- an hour at a time dm'ing st{){"ffiS and no day goes b)' wrthout at least a shower or ~.

Thus Kaneahe, only 10 miles O!:' so across the mountain from Honolulu, can be drenched with rain while the leeward side of the island remains sunny.

Building Reform To Aid R'enewal CINCINNATI (NC)­ Reform of church building, is needed so that litur~ical renewal can be made effec­ tive, 8 liturgical scholar said here. Father H. A. Reinhold of Pitts­ burgh said at a festival sponsored­ by the Cincinnati Archdiocesaa Liturgical Arts Group: ''The liturgy can never be restored to its full value and life * * * if it is to gD on living in surround­ ings that do not help but hinder it.'" Father Reinhold, authO!:' of 'The American Parish and the .. Roman Litufrry," emphasized - that "we must rethink church building according to a vital liturgy."

"We must efface from our minds the eternal picture of a basilica and the Romanesque, Gothic, or Renaissance fashion and their general pattern with. out paying attention to the lit­ urgy." He cited as an example of surroundings that hinder the liturgy "a Gothic cathedral where the celebrant is hardly visible far away from the con­ gregation, and the liturgy goes on as it were at the bottom of an ocean of colored glass." 'Relative Emptiness'

As component parts of a "mod­ ern church serving a revitalized liturgy," Father Reinhold listed: The "Eucharistic church," in­ cluding "all that is needed for Mass and Bible vigils, that is, an altar, seats for the clergy and the people in their proper places, two lecterns, and Communion stations or railing. "One of the most outstanding characteristics of this church," he said, "would be the relative emptiness, in the main body ot the building, of devotional stat­ ues and pictures. Christ is ia the' center and He should not be in competition with saints."

Vatican Council

the World

In discussing the role of the Catholic lay person, Auxiliary Bishop Hannan of Washington reiterated what Church leaders - lay and clerical- have been asking for years: "The laity should be urged to join organizations which can influence daily life - associations of parents in:. terested in educational activities, and organizations with professional, charitable and civic aims, not excluding particpation in politics. Men cannot be led to Christ unless associations of this kind are marked with the spirit of Christ." By the fact of Baptism, people are marked with the prophetic character. This means that they are, like Christ, prophets in the world, and the meaning of that expression "prophet" is that they be witnesses to the truth. Christ came to present the truth of His Father, and His life was to make God better known and loved. Those whom He associates to Himself are called upon to do no less - to be prophets, to be -witnesses, to live as "other Christs" in whatever environment they are - in their fami­ lies, in their homes; in their factories and shops, in their neighborhoods. The Christian mission is not so weak that it must be lived in a ghetto or in a religious -hothouse where the dis­ turbing and challenging winds of secularism and indiffer­ ence to God cannot get at it. Men are weak but Christ is not and those who bear His name and are commissioned to carryon His work must take their strength from Him and Christianize these organizations, these associations, these political opportu­ C"(h.nOlA.Clh thL th£ nities.

Not Backward Pope Paul has presented as' a guiding principle' a message that is the very epitome of good Christianity aDd good psychology. In speaking to the nop-Catholic observers at the Council he ·said that the best method. to obtain unity is "not to look backward to the past, but forward toward the present day and above all to the future." For too many centuries apologists on all sides nave sifted through the tragic events leading to the renting as­ under of the Christian community and have tried to assess blame with varying degrees of mathematical precision. Pope Paul, following the example of Pope John, reminded men that this is a waste of time and serves only to keep alive the smoldering embers of old resentments and deep-rooted hostilities. The past must be left behind with only the expression of sorrow for whatever part Catholics had in the sad breaks. Non-Catholic Christians must have that same at­ titude. It is the present and the future that must be surveyed with mutual love and sincerity and with great reliance On the Providence of God and the Will of Christ "that aD may be one." The past can serve to point up the pitfalls that widened the chasm in centuries gone. But the emphasis must be on the present - that the Church of Christ may be seen and the voice of Christ heard now in the Catholic Church and in the Pope. And the future must contain the goal toward which all eyes look - the bringing together, under God, of men into the one Christian family.

Urges Catholics Join in March

By Father Walter w. Imbiorski Dear Father: I suppose it is pretty unusual for a man to be writing to you about this subject, but my wife just gave me the wonderful news that we will be having our first baby lIhortly after Easter. Frankly I know very little about being 1m expectant father. Are may usually be continued there any special things ] lations until' a few weeks before the should be doing? What about baby is born. But in this matter the matter of physical love check with your doctor and fol­ during pregnancy? How about Dames for the child? Is it true that the Church says we niust prefer the life of the child to the life of the mother? How does one practice to become a father? Rear Ralph: Perhaps the most practical thing you can do in the months ahead is to care for your wife and deepen the love that exists between you. In pregnancy some young women get to worrying about the future, about their figures, about the usually inac­ curate stories they've heard from Aunt Gussie about childbirth, Your consideration and cheer­ fulness and reassurance are especially important right now. Take a real interest in what· • happening. Read at least one 100d book on p'regnancy and. childbirth. There are wonderful changes that will be occuring from week to week now until the baby comes. Be concerned and learn to share this tremenclous experience. You, in effect, :mulft become a little pregnant too. New Adventure It w~uld be. an excellent idea If you accompany your wife·to,. the doctor at least once to, -get, his evaluation· of the situation, end his suggestions. As you trained to play basket­ ball and football, 80 there are routines that your wife should. follow. Make sure that she eatsl pro.perly, sleeps enough, takes: medication, and gets exercise. I am not suggesting that you hover or wait on her every minute. Certainly don't treat hex' .. though she were sick or lUI, invalid. But she is going through, .. new adventure and wants you, Dearby. Sometimes whlle carrying the, baby your wife may get irritable" depressed, or angry, and, even, fItY a little witllout apparent ..eason. These sessions are usu·, .11y very' brief and infrequent and discussion, calmness, andl reassurance is the best therapy.. In a first pregnancy a f~ar oj~ the unknown is a factor tha1; bas to be considered. Find ou~; piecisely what will happenal: the various stages of labor arKll delivery and exactly what the! "gns are that will take you 'till the h 0 s pit a 1. Knowing that everything is ready can be very' eomforting. , Plan k» Help After the birth of the baby: itometimes stress, confusion, fati-" lue and the end of a gread ado: ftnture can cause a temporal'J' low . feeling.

low his suggestions. As to the old routine as to why the Church prefers the life of the baby to the life of the mother, Ralph, let me say that this is sheer nonsense. All the Church says is that you cannot directly and deliberately kill the mother to save the child, or kill the child to save the mother. But a better answer is this: there are no circumstances in modern 0 b st e t ric a I practice where this choice of mother or baby ever comes up. It is a myth and ought to be forgotten.

NEWARK (NC)-Catholics of the Newark archdioeese have been urged to take part in a civil rights march Saturday on Trenton, the state capital. Suggestions that they take part came from the archdiocesan coordinator of interracial pro­ grams and the chairmen of the civil rights committees of the archdiocesan men's and women's councils. Father Aloysius. J. Welsh, coordinator of interracial programs, said the march, "as an orderly, public demonstration in behalf of interracial justice, is endorsed in principle." A joint statement urging par­ ticipation was issued by William HolUb, chairman of the archdioc­ esan men's council interracial committee, and Mrs. William Armstrong, his counterpart in the women:s council. They said peaceable demon­ strations .patterned after the massive civil rights march in Washington, D. C., Aug. 28 are "a positive way for men and women to dQ something about the crucial domestic issue £acing this country." .

Apathy of Public Helps Smut NEW BERLIN (NC) -Com­ munity pressur6, rather than legislation, is the best defense against the smut tra:(:fic, Michael J. Howlett, State Auditor of Public Accounts, told a Knights of Columbus meeting here in Illinois. He said Illinois laws already On the books are adequate to control indecent literature when properly enforced. 'The loneliest man in the world is the young prosecutor, all by himself in a courtroom, representing the people of Illi-' nois in a complaint against smut, contesting with expensive and expert counsel for the well. heeled offender," he said. "It takes people to make a law work. An aroused citizenry . which demands action of law enforcement authorities, and backs them up when action is taken, can accomplish wonders.

Rome s Attitude Seen Changing On Writer

RALEIGH (NC) - A Baptist pastor here said that the non­ Catholic 'Christian who responds today to Catholicism as he re­ garded it yesterday is no longer responding to reality. In a letter addressed to all Southern Baptist Convention editors, the Rev. W.W. Finlator, pastor, Pullen Memorial Baptist church, wr<>te of fast-changing attitudes of openness among· Catholics. "Some of us have been running fast just to keep up," he said. "In my own community, there has taken place' almost overnight an openness and ac-. ceptance am<>ng the Catholic leadersqip beyond the dreams of any of us a year or so ago." He also said that "the non­ Roman communion which fails to experience a similiar "ag­ giornamento' has forsaken its own Protestant principle of a continuing Reformation and can therefore have n<> appreciation of the tremendous spiritual fer­ ment within the Roman Church."

Asks 'ConverJion Of Catholics' ERLANGER (NC) - A bish­ . op recommended "conversion of Catholics" to a correct attitude toward Negroes as a significant need in the work of bringing Negroes into the Church. AUXiliary Bishop Paul F. Leibold of Cincinnati told the 25th anniversary meeting of the Midwest Clergy Conference on Negro Welfare here in Ken­ tucky: "You and I know that there are communities which are' percentagewise 'Catholic,' yet where the Negro simply is ostracized, with all the cliches, 'Keep bim in his place,' and 110 on. "An image of the Church 'without spot or wrinkle' cannot be presented while these condi­ tions exist."

The late Father Teilhard was a French Jesuit paleontologist. His writingso on religions and scientific themes, particularly evolution, have received both praise and criticism in Catholic and non-Catholic circles. Father Burke suggested that the Church's Index of Forbidden Books is due for revision by the ecumenical council. "Current educated Catholics face complex situations, calling not for propaganda, hysteria, fear, frustration or despair, but for what might be described as the pure flame of intelligence applied to the contemporary scene," he said. "The Catholic layman especi­ ally must be prepared to face, discuss and sometimes decide issues involVing ••• racial seg­ regation, divorce, birth control and or international tensions. "It is with these factors in mind that Church legislation re­ garding reading' and books will be considered by the council. Book legislation suited for the' 16th century is inappropriate for the 20th," Father Burke com­ mented. .

God Love You By Most Rev. Fulton J•. Sheen, D.D. • ROME - A Bishop wears his purple on the outside for the benefit of the people. He can always wear a hair shirt on the inside for the benefit of himself. As one sits in Council with 2,500 bishops one has the feeling that many of them would be more comfortable if they had on a hair shirt.

By Rt. Rev. Msgr. John S.'Kennedy The names of two cardinals - Newman and Manning - dominate the history of the Catholic Church in England during the nineteenth century. The name of a third is escliped by theirs - that of Nicholas Wiseman. Yet Wise­ man had everything to do form of C h u r c h with that most dec i s i v e ventional government , but sought to do event, the restoration of the this gradually and· discreetly. hierarchy.

Sports - that is organized varsity sports in schools - seem to be influencing the old academy spirit. They cause battles (spats?) between coaches, alumni and faculty, with the coaches usually winning on points-one big point being an item called money. Every day you hear of another private school giving up some varsity sport or other, largely because of an incredible finan­ .dal loss, a phenomenon that in­ spires at least one question: In that same period of time, how much do· you suppose these neavy losers on sports dropped on the debating squad? The colleges are bad enough, · but this sports myth has spread to the high schools and even : ·the grade schools, where the vic­ ,tims are little kids instead of big · ones, and 80 less able to spot · the phoniness. Schedules Come First At commencement ceremonies, · ,you might not hear too much · about the classical clubs, but , 'you're always kept up to date on the sports program, especially if · the old Alma Mater (or even ! Alma Baby Sister) had a pretty ':good year. Any sales (ticket, · eakes, the old desks, mono­ 'gramed martini glasses) around :the school are invariably athle­ 'tic department drives. After all, the grade school in McKeesport, : Pa. which. has an $8,000 annual football budget has to scrounge · 'it somewhere. The Fathers' Club in most • 8Chools has only one P\llllOse ­ 'not fatherly guidance exactly, '·but the furthering of the athle­ tic program.

School s c h e d u 1 e s revolve around sports schedules which have been set up first, and no one dares to risk any possible conflicts. If other meetings are held, moderators are cautioned not to allow them to take up too much time - but the varsity can practice for hours nightly and that is not too much time. Disproportion of Values Now why'all this? Under what guise can such a vast dispropor­ tion of values exist? HGW Clin anything gain such enorm.ous af­ fection in the hearts of adminis­ trators?

Youth More Generous Now In Facing Challenges NEW ORLEANS (NC) - A priest-author evaluated today's crop of youngsters as "much more generous" and no less obedient when compared to the youth of 20 years ~go. "They're much harder to de­ ceive today," Father Andrew Greeley of Ohicago told the 1963 West and Midwest Diocesan Di­ rectors of Vocations convention here. "They are much less pati­ ent than we would have been with empty formalism, pioue silliness, narrow intellectualism, petty rivalry, ritualisti,c trivia­ lity and 9!'Ilall-minded tyranny." Father Edward Phelan of Peoria, nl., said: "We've brought Madison Avenue to the convent," in describing successful cam­ paigns of promotiop and publi­ eity fo~ sisterhoods. Reachin&, Public

"The hue and cry that there aren't any vocations is ,certainly erroneous," Father Phelan said. "It's a matter of reaching the pUblic, letting them know what you're doing and letting them know they are needed." Father Greeley, auth~r of the books "The Church and the Suburbs" and "Strangers in the House," said if "we can persuade young people that our work is contact with the needs of modern man and forwarding Christ's goals," then seminaries and novitiates will have more students than they "will know what to do with."

The younger generation of today "looks· at us with a cold, hard eye and says: ·What the hell are you doing?' And some­ j.imes we can't tell them," Father Greeley lIllid. Stressing the generosity of today's youth, the priest-author lIllid "our genera­ 1tion of 20 years ago would DOt :bave contributed to the Papal Volunteers or the Peace Corps" like modern younsters. Lose Contact

Father Phelan said some sisterhoods because of restricted work in hospitals, homes for aged and similar institutions lose contact with young women. Be recommended advertising and publicity campaigns to increase vocations among sisterhoods. He eited several examples of how such calQpaigns had succeeded at several communities.

Leads Jungle Workers From Poverty to Prosperity DETROIT (NC) - A small cooperative of Brazil-nut and rubber workers in the jungle region of north-eastern Bolivia today is being pointe·d out as a model for other underdeveloped areas of Latin America. The Blanca Flor cooperative is a 125,000-acre tract of jungle given to the Maryknoll Fathers by the Bolivian government to form a buyer and consumer co­ operative. Father John A. Dietrich, M.M., of Detroit, now home on fur­ lough, arrived in the area after ordination in 1957. He found a few lICattered families roaming the jungle and collecting Brazil­ nuts. From a few families in the '50s, Blanca Flor has grown to a eooperative village of almost 800 people. Father Dietrich has

taught and watched them be· come self-reliant leaders. of a large Brazil-nut and rubber co­ operative. The cooperative has three operations - a Brazil-nut plant; a ru,bber processing plant and a plant for making oil from the Brazil-nut. Build Airfield Six years ago Blanca Ftor had one path 10 miles long. To­ day, it has 47 miles of roads each 18 to 20 feet wide, plus a mile-long airfield built by the workers. The air strip has en­ abled the cooperative to ship rubber and Brazil-nuts directly to Cochabamba and eliminate costly middle men. "We got a good buy on a 20· ton bulldozer in La Paz," Father Deitrich said, "but we had to dismantle it and fly it in six

trips and then put it back to­ gether." The bulldozer will be used .. clear 2,500 acres of jungle fill' new crops - chocolate, vanilla, coffee, rubber and ipecac, • pharmaceutical) to provide the people and cooperative wita ready cash.

New Bedfordites Head Guild

Suggests Calm Discussion' Of Catholic Education

Continued from Page One Father Shovelton celebrated the annual guild Mass in St. Peter's Church, Chicago, and also congratulated the member­ ship on its achievements to date. Speaking at a following com­ munion breakfast, Harry J. O'Haire, executive secretary of Serra International, stressed the importance of Diocesan phar­ macists' guilds and the manner in which they should cooperate with the parent body. Members discussed formation of national membership and

Catholic Pharmacists Guilds seek to promote the practice of pharmacy in conformity with the moral teachings of the Churc-h as well as in compliance with all pharmacy laws and regulations. Headquarters for the national organization are at 415 Country Street, New Bedford.

I suggested last week that a good deal of the present' eriticism' of Catholic schools was based not on the inade equacies of these schools (when compared with other Amer­ ican schools) but on the symbolic importance of the schools in the current strained re­ weakness of communication and lationship between certain public relatio.ns in certain f 1 ·t d t' ~ools and parIshes. • d km al y an cer ~m It is fashionable to call this s 0 kinds of clergy.

Thoughts and Observations On the' Scrimmage Punt

Thurs., Oct. 24, 1963

Refuses Church Use of School

By Jack KiJlleavy The most puzzling, least understood situation in foot­ ball today involves the sequence of events on a punt from scrimmage. Reinforcing this observation are a couple of incidents which occurred in college games this weekend. One lapse had a national ef­ inl~ it. Proprietary concern is a fect on the outcome of the fine trait but extremely inadvis_ Navy - V.MJ. gam e; the able in the situation described other, less heralded, pro­ fOl~ should that ball contact a voked temporary consternation in the Vermont ranks in the . early stages of what eventually proved to be a comfortable vic­ tory over New Hampshire. In the latter in­ stance, a Ver­ mont end down­ field under a punt, touched the rolling kick deep in N.H. territory, then proceeded to turn his back oa the ball. The alert N. H. safetyman, c0­ captain Dan Sereika, with no wasted motion scooped up the still live pigskin and rambled some 86 yards to paydirt through the ranks of the entire Vermont team. Legal? All the way. Contrary to popular opinion, a punt touched by a member of the kicking team downfield beyond the line of scrimmage does not "kill" the ball. Such touching is merely a violation. The ball re­ mains alive until it is reasonably apparent that no member of the the receiving team cares to field it. The whistle is then sounded and the ball becomes dead. The violation committed by the kick­ ing team is not a foul but it does give the receiving team, in the event the kick is subsequently fielded and returned, the option of taking the result of the play or the ball at the spot of viola­ tion. ViolaUO&-Foul To distinguish between a foul and a violation which carries with it no penalty, an official use. a blue flag to mark the spot where illegal touching has oc­ curred. Prior to a rules change effective last year, any kick touched by the kicking team in­ side the receiving club's 10-yard line carried with it a touchback option. This 11 no longer so, hence you see a flurry of action under deep punts as players of the kicking team hustle to se­ cure the ball before it goes into the end zone. The rules' change has precip­ itated a marked increase in the number of fair catch situations where safetymen are instructed to field deep punts which pos­ sibly might not carry into the end zone before being downed by onrushing members of the kicking team. Utilizing all the speed they can muster upfr<lnt, just to ,enhance the possibility of downing a punt deep in op­ ponent's teriitory, we find coaches today moving backs up on the line of scrimmage. U, however, the ball is in the air and a member of ~ receiv­ ing team is in a position to catch it, he must be given an un­ molested opportunity to do so. In such an event, should the player of the kicking team be struck by the ball in flight ~r should the receiver collide with him, kick catching interference results and a 15-yard penalty from the spot of the foul is as­ sessed against the kicking team. Short Punte On short punts, particularly, downfield movement by mem­ bers of the kicking team can prove hazardous. On the other hand, we've seen countless in. stances where a player or play­ ers of the receiving team hover about a bouncing scrimmage kick with no intention of field­


of the receiving team, it th,m becomes" a free ball. Touching of a punt beyond the line of srimmage by a member of the kicking team is a viola­ tion; it does not "kill" the ball A kick caught or recovered by thl~ kicking team beyond the line of scrimmage automatically results in a dead ball. There can be no interference by the kick. inl~ team on a scrimmage kick which has touched the ground but if the ball strikes a member of the kicking team however in­ advertently, it is a violation and whatever transpires thereafter, thl! receiving team has the op­ tion of taking the ball at the spot of violation. ,rhe incident which occurred in the Navy-VMI game Saturday involved a player of the receiv. iIli' team touching a Navy kick which had rolled into his end " zone. He then walked away from thtl ball which an alert Navy man promptly secured for the easiest touchdown the Middies will score all year. Weird but all too true. What's the rule? Simply this. A kick touched by a player of th«! receiving team beyond the line of scrimmage becomes a free ball. In this case, the ball remained in the end zone so th~lt Navy upon securing pos­ session was awarded a touch­ down. Had this occurred in the field of play, it would have re­ sulted in a first down. What if the safetyman hadn't touched the ball at all but it remained in the end zone? Touchback, VMI's ball on their own 20-yard line. Confusion Reigns .A possible reason for the con­ fusion of the VMI safetyman gOt~s back to the so-called Feder­ atic)n rules which are in wide­ spread use in scholastic circles here in the U. S. Under these rules any ·kick which crosses the gO~ll line becQmes an automatic safety. Only two states, I believe, use NCAA rules with modifica­ tions. Massachusetts is one. Therefore it could very well be that the VMI safetyman thought that he had, acted prt¥lently in simply touching the Navy kick. This comes under the learning the hard way category. And finally one last but by no means uncomplicated twist to the possible play sequence. involving the scrimmage kick is the situation in which a foul is committed by either team while the ball is in the air beyond the lirn~ of scrimmage and before it is touched by a player of the reo ceiving team. In this event, the ball belongs to the kicking team, the penalty is assessed from the previous spot--or the yard line where the ball was put in play­ and the down is repeated. '1'hese, then are a few of the ramifications of the scrimmage kiclc, the play which year in and year out seems to be the most complex for players and fans alike and upon which the resolu­ tion of a ball game has frequent­ ly and ultimately rested.

Has Eye on Future National Sodality Federation Observes

Movement's 400th Anniversary

CLEVELAND (N C) - The National Federation of Sodali­ ties, marking the 400th anniver­ sary of the sodality movement, in convention here turned its back on the past and grappled with problems of the present with eyes on the future. The 500 delegates voted to broaden their movement with a constitutional change designed to bring into the national feder­ ation the sodalities now spon­ sored by the Jesuits and Mari­ anists and individual parish so­ dalities in areas where there is no diocesan federation. They also voted to establish a permanent office at National CathoUc Wei far e Conference headquarters in Washington, D.C. and pledged some $30,000 to meet initial expem p ". The first executive secretary, commissioned to take office next January, is Louis Hogan of Ker­ rick, Minn., now serving as a Papal Volunteer in Peru.

S.J., of St. Peter's College, Jersey City, said that for almost 70 years, since the time of Pope Leo XIII, the Church has been aware that it was not making the desired impact on secular society, and has been calling for the laity to help. Only now, he added, are lay­ men beginning to hear the call of the Church. The growth f professional and adult sodalitiee gives promise of coming close to the heart of the problem, he added.

support passage of strong civil rights legislation by Congress. Father Francis M. Keating,

NORTH BERGEN (NC) The Board of Education in this New Jersey community denied Our Lady of Fatima parish per­ mission to hold Sunday Masses in Horace Mann School. Father George A. O'Gorman, pastor, asked permission to use the school shortly after the parish was est a b 1 ish e d by Newark's Archbishop Thomas A. Boland last June. The board de­ layed action on the request during the Summer, explaining that one or more board members were always absent. . Father O'Gorman recently re­ ceived a letter from the board stating that permission will not be given. The letter said the de­ cision was reached at an execu­ tive session. There was no publie hearing. Father O'Gorman has not been notified that the re­ quest was to be discussed. No reason for the refusal was given although in the past North Berg~n County schools have been used for religious wors~ip by other groups on a temporary basis. 'Great Disappointment' Joseph J. McKeon, board pre"ident, later said reasons for the refusal were that churches were not ngrmally permitted to use public schools and the period (one year) requested by Father O'Gorman was too long. The practice of permitting churches to use public facilities for wor­ ship has been upheld by the New Jersey courts. In a statement to the press, Father O'Gorman said 'it is a source of great disappointment to me and my 5,000 parishioners, all -f whom are citizens of North Bergen, that a public building built by people of this town, not only for the education of their children but' also for the public use of the citizens of the town in times of emergency, should not be made available to us."
