On election eve

Candid,ates give views

WASHINGTON (NC) - On the eve of the presidential election, both President Ron­ ald Reagan and candidate Walter Mondale' have responded to written questions sub­ mitted by National Catholic News Service. Reagan promise~, ,if reelected, to seek passage of anti-abortion and tuition tax credit legislation and to protect Central America f rom "military solutiollls" imposed by Com­ munist-backed governments. While .declaring that he "respects" the Catholic Church's teaching on tine unborn, Mondale backs the Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion. He also pledged that if elected he will deemphasize the role of nUclear weapons in U.S. defense policies. Reagan also pledged "at least equivalence" in mili­ rtary strength with the Soviet Union. He said ,the United States provides nuclear strength for Western Europe because Am­ erica's NATO aHies have been reluctant to match growing So­ viet-bloc conventional force power with increased conven­ tional force clout of their own. He declared that "the United States is committed to encourag~ ing internal ;reforms and nego­ tiated solutions to political prob­ lems in EI Salvador" but that "we wi'll not stand by and let miHtary solutions· be imposed on rthe free people of Central America by· their adversaries." Questioned about NATO nu­ clear first~use policies, criticized by the U.S. bishops as moraHy unacceptable, Reagan said that the United States and NATO "do not start wars and we use OUT forces - especially our nuclear forces - only to deter aggres­ sion." . Discussing other defense mat­ ters, he said that the U.S. pro­ ~ssentia.J

On other ,topics, Reagan: - Said that the 1985 Defense Department budget ,is $65 billion less than the budget for the De­ .partment of Health and Human Services and that "over the next five years" government will spend on defense." - Promised that by the end of 1989 his administration will be providing "rent vouohers" rto low-income families to help them obtain housing anywhere in ,the nation. - Said his' administration has "slowed the rate of tax in­ creases on lower - and middle­ income Americans" whose taxes "have not decreased much only because our ,tax cuts were off­ set by the C~rter-Mondale So­ cial Security rtax increases and their high rates of inflation that forced taxpayers into higher tax brackets."

- Said that poverty is in­ creasing at a slower pace under his administration and that a small "rise in poverty really re­ presents a stalHng of a trend to increased poverty that began dur. ing the previous administration." - Stated that "ours is the first administra~ion in 20 years to reduce both the inflation and unemployment rates during a single ,term," and that a federal job-training program for disad­ vantaged .youths, welfare recipi­ ents and displaced workers .is "one of my administration's crowning achievements."

Heav'y agenda at fall meeting

Busy bishops By Jerry Filteau WASHINGTON (NC) - When the Catholic bishops of the United States gather' for their regular fall meeting Nov. 12-15, most popular attention will fo­ cus on their pastoral letter on the economy. But they face more Jmmediate decisions on a non­ sexist version of the Psalms, a new eucharistic prayer, and new guidelines for permanent deacons and for continuing for­ mation of priests. Their 20-item action agenda alone dnvolves nearly 400 pages of documentation sent to each bishop in October. Written

backgrounders for information and discussion are expected to run to several hundred addi­ tional pages. Discussion of a still-secret first draft of a nationa,1 pastoral letter on Catholic social teach­ ing and the U.S. economy is the most controversial general issue facing <the four-day assembly. Many observers have predicted that the proposed pastoral could provoke more pubHc debate thari the bishops' 1983 pastoral on war and peace issues. Initially the first draft of the economy document was to be re­ leased this s~mmer, but concern over its possible misuse in elec­

tion-year campaigning ,led the bishops to postpone ,the release until just before the meeting, after the elections are over. The economic pastoral is not an "action" item on the Novem­ ber agenda, however. It is only up for discussion, with an eye toward further revisions over the next year and a fina'i debate and vote by the bishops in Nov­ ember 1985. Several items on which the bishops wiJl be asked to vote 'involve church law questions, ranging from the age of receiv­ ingconfirmation to rules for Turn to Page Nine

CATHOLIC SOCIAL 'SERVICES. ~~ th:r:;,.,Ca:=~~;:a~~.:~




DUBLIN, Ireland (NC) ­ Four U.S. bishops who visited Ireland last week condemned fund raising by Irish-Americans for the Irish Republican Army and said they would dnvestigate the practice. Bishop James W. Malone of Youngstown, Ohio, National Con­ ference of Catholic iBis~ops president said at a Dublin con­ ference that the bishops had been told a "substantial percen­ tage of money sent ,to Ireland" from the United States to aid Catholics actuaUy went for wea­ pons for the outlawed guerrilIas. He calIed the practice "repre­ hensible" and said that "as a person and a bishop I would have to urge against the collec­ tion of funds if it were known they were going to be used to fur-ther violence." The 'group was invited by Irish bishops and plans to report to their felIow :U.S. bishops on the social, political and economic situations jn Northern 'IreJand, where the mostly Catholic IRA is waging a guerrilla war to oust the British from the Protestant­ majority province. Bishop Malone said that in ex­ amining distribution of funds collected in the U.S. for keland, "we would be making a judg­ ment, according to our convic­ tions, that A'merican funds should not be collected with our approval and sent here for the purpose of fomenting violence." The other bishops in the fact­ finding group were Archbishop John J. O'Connor of New York, Bishop Mark J. Hurley of Santa Rosa, Calif., and Bishop J. Fran­ cis Stafford of Memphis, Tenn. Msgr. Daniel F. Hoye, NCCB general secretary" also took part in the trip.

themoorin~ A Reminder of Lost Zeal


Recently many diocesan rectories were visited by fol­ lowers of Rev. Sun Myung Moon. They were pleading his cause in connection with his present legal predicament. In the course of their visits they politely but determinedly dis­ tributed pertinent videotapes and literature. This effort on the part of devoted young people reflects the zeal and dedication so often the hallmark of innovative religious ·movements. When one sees the determination and· resolve of such witnesses, one is bound to compare them to those of our own evangelical efforts. . Some would look with contempt on such enthu~iasm. But the Moonies, the Hare Krishnas, the adherents of the Church of Scientology and the like, their teachings ~side, offer us. refreshing idealism. They. face rejection with dis­ arming honesty; they fend off taunts and turn the other cheek with- amazing joy. . Many of these zealous followers give up a ~reat de~l. They leave family and friends, they get by on five or SIX hours of 'sleep a night. They devote many hours a day to study and meditation. They deny themselves sexual activ­ ity. They live on the edge of personal poverty. The'description in many ways fits a Trappist monk as well as it does a Moonie. Christians might well think twice before they judge these young people by a double standard set on the one hand for cults and on the other for acceptable churches. True, cults employ' aggravating proselytizing' tactics, play on the emotions and raise funds in an offensive man­ ner. Some are inoeed mere excuses for unacceptable moral behavior. However, many are sincere in their evangelical 'Whoever welcomes this litt~e child on my account welcomes me, and who­ efforts.' , ever welcomes me welcomes him who sent 'me.' Luke 9:48 Our church is evangelical. It is apostolic. It is heir to the stirring ideals of Jesus. .. . '.

Helping women

woman's choice about abortion. In other words, ·it favors abor­ tion on demand. Abortion is also addressed by the 10 black Catholic bishops of the United States in their just­ released pastoral Jetter on evan­ gelization. Their position differs radically from NCAN's. The bishops lamented effort~ to provide low-cost abortions to black mothers, which they see as another form of subjugation. In­ deed, they observe, "three are those who would even character­ ize it as a form of genocide." A leading Iblack Protestant church also recently came out against abortion on demand. One might think that these statements from the black com­ munity would give NCAN seri-' ous pause. Yet NCAN main­ tains, in effect, that its own position on abortion is the only one that adequately reflects au­ thentic Catholic teaching. NCAN - whioh represents ap­ proximately 2 percent of Ameri­ can nuns - says the American bishops "believe that they alone have the right and wisdom to make decisions about ,the moral­ ity" of a woman's right to decide the outcome of her pregnancy. School Sister of Notre Dame Margaret Traxler, a former NCAN chairperson, elaborated on thiS' in a recent interview. "How can someone suggest,"

what his experience is. How can a man tell a woman what to do about her body?" Catholic women have many legitimate complaints about the way they are treated in church and society, and I applaud them for demanding that their rights be respected. But it's unfortun­ ate that a group of women reli­ gious would appeal to 'smplistic feminist rhetoric to jusify abor­ tion on demand. Can church opposition to abor­ tion be dismissed simply as an expression of episcopal male chauvinism? Following Sister Traxler's ar­ gument to its logical conclusion, NCAN members preseumably would have to drop many apos­ tolic works in which 'they are now so effectively engaged. How·.is it possible for them, as female celibates, to be marrage counselors? Since they are not alcoholics or drug addicts, how can they minister so effec­ ,tively to men and women who are addicted? As women, how can they minister, again very effectively, to male prison in­ mates? Sister Traxler admitted bish­ ops have a right to ,teach, even on abortion. "But there's a dif­ ference," she said, "between what they say and. what the church's teaching is." The bishops, she said, "can


'speak, yes. They can call com­ mands to the troops, but they'il'e not looking at the troops to make sure they're following ,them." That's a curious argument from an activist who has often prodded the bishops to take the 'lead on controversial issues. Why demand that the bishops step out ahead of their reluc­ tant troops on disarmament, in­ terradal justice, Central Amer­ ica, but not abortion? If NCAN's members are sin­ cere about helping women ­ and I think they are - they could do no better than take up the black bishops' challenge. It is our duty, the bi&hops said, "to show practical concern and honest compassion for the many mothers-to-be who are too often encouraged to seek an abortion by the conventional wisdom of our society today." NCAN members, to their credit, have already done much to meet this challenge. Much more remains to be done - by aI-I of us, male and female alike. That's why it hurts' to see NCAN militantly espousing and reinforcing the "conventional wiooom" on abortion. Ethics and morality aside, that's ofue worst possible way to promote the feminist cause. 0

Is peace female? Some time ago I wrote a column asking readers to re­ spond to the question: Is peace a gender issue? Response was ~Iarge and mix­ ed. The only conclusion I could draw was that there's a general feeling that we expec,t and teach boys to be more defense-oriented and war-loving than girls. I was pleased that many fami­ lies used the column to discuss the ,issue of peace and war. A family from Auburn, WA, wrote: "We disoussed your column at dinner 'last night after I read it aloud. Our consensus is that, yes, women would have ,a mel­ lowing influence on politics. We felt that generally women are more inclined to compromise and seek a peaceful solution to disagreements. We feel men are nr.tura'lly more aggressive. My husband added ,that this would bring hope for world ,peace only if women had more influence worldwide. Feminine influence in only one or a few countries would be of little help." P.W. of Overland Park, Kan­ sas, writes," . . . our expecta­ tions of our males are stm influ­ enced by the 'macho man.'

Q. I am a very ecumenically­ minded Presbyterian, married to a non-practicing Roman· Cath­ olic. It is the first and only marriage for both of us. In the interest of my husband's faith, I wish to know what can be done for him to be reinstated in the Catholic Church. I believe the only thing that stands in the way is a vasec­ tomy he had done years ago, when we were 25. He had the vasectomy because he felt pres­ sured by my highly emotional state at that time, with three children in 31 months. While the children were obviously be­ ing brought up in the church, one priest asked my husband about his faith. When he heard the story; he seemed to say that oothing could be done.

VATICAN CITY (NC) - Pope John Paul II has set firm guide­ 'lines for socially active basic Christian communities if they are to Ibe- effective. Such communities are small groups organized around Bible readings and social action based on applying biblical concepts to. the political, social and economic conditions of :1'heir area. They began in Latin America in the 1960s. There are about 150,000 such groups in Latin America, mostly in rural' areas. In two October speeches the pope' said basic Christian com­ munities cannot be alternatives to parishes, but must be strongly tied to the institutional church; otherwise they represent "a seriQus danger" '~o church unity. These groups are, valuable if they maintain "real and sincere communion with the hierarchy," the pontiff told visiting Ecuador­ an bishops Oct. 23. The church must IDJard against communities "which form 'a 'church 'of the poor people' op­ posed ,to the institutional church" and which often see the Iinstitu­ tional church "as averse to the cause of the liberation of the op­ pressed masses,", the pope said. "The bishops' . conference' should hold in its hands the reins of the basic Christian communi­ ties," Pope John Paul said. , ,He strongly endorsed church social action work in Latin Am­ erica, where most basic Chris­ tian communities exist, many as part of parish structure. The groups are also popular in U.S. Hispanic areas. On Oct. 20 the pope praised Ithe "positive values" of basic Christian communities but warn­ ed that they "cannot place them­ selves on the same level as par­ ish communities, as possible alternatives." He was addressing members of the Vatican Congregation for the Clergy which was meeting to discuss problems of .urban par­ ishes. He said parishes should be open to the possibilities of church service by basic Christian com­ munities but that the parish· "is the first school of faith, prayer and Christian customs. It lis the first place of church charity, the first tool of pastoral and socia,l action and the best terrain for the tilowering of religious and priestly vocations."

Akin to slavery LAST SUNDAY members of the Dioces:ln Council of Catholic Women spoke in nearly. 111 diocesan churches on the work of their organization.

NORTH ANDOVER, Mass. (NC) - Legalized abortion is today's parallel to slavery, "the grimmest of ou~ national mem­ ories," Archbishop Bernard F.

He urged Amercans opposed' to abortion to follow /the example of Abraham Lincoln on sIIavery :by working for reversal of the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in the matter.

Daily life Dear Editor: Often U is difficult to find meaning dn our daily lives, es­ pecially when excitement and punctuation moments are few and far Ibetween. Wives and moms plod through each day doing routine things hardly having time to refleot upon what a tremendous contr,ibution they make to society or to grasp how very fortunate they are to have been called by God to do such tasks. Having done a variety of domestic and professional jobs, I .am convinced that the best job I ever had is that of wife and mojjher. On duty hours. be­ gin before sunrise and continue through iate evening with an "on call" sign always up. There are no formal rules or posted job description. My tasks require bending and stooping to scrub and scour my meager mansion. Responsibilities change daily, sometimes increas­ ing, rarely decreasing, ·but never dull, constantly offering chances to learn and 'illlUgh. The knowledge and wisdom gained through "on-the-job train­ dng" cannot be measured. Pay­ ment is commensurate with ef­ fort extended and may consist of a morning flower kissed /by the sun, the laughter of children, the aroma of roasting turkey, the sparkle of shiny floors, the gleam of loving eyes, the feel of kitten fur, a friend's knock at the door, the gentle brush of a cool autumn breeze and best of aU, a chance to be needed.

'CRS rushes Ethiopia aid From News Services Mother Teresa, on tour in the United States, has added her plea to those of thousands call­ ing for intensified aid ,to starving millions in Ethiopia. The Nobel Prize winner ask~d President Reagan to aid relief efforts and the chief exeoutive telephoned her to say that he would press for action on the part of the U.S. Agency for In­ ternational Development, which has thus far committed itself to sending $45 million during fis­ eal 1985 dn food aid to the Afri­ can nation. Meantime, Cathoilc Relief Ser­ vices, the overseas assistance arm of U.S. Catholics, ds sfepping up efforts to combat unprece­ dented levels of starvation in Ethiopia. "I've never seen anything this bad," Kenneth Hackett, CRS senior director for Africa, said in a press release. ",We've gone beyond documenting the cases of malnutrition to counting the dead. In two small towns I visit­ ed, there were 106 deaths in one day alone."

List-topping • Issues (Undated) (NC) Africa's bishops have put care for the poor, the exploited and victims of discrimination, dnduding wo­ men, at the top of their list of pastoral priorities. They also said small Christian communities will be relied on heavily to put the Gospel into action in Africa. The bishops' program was out­ 'lined at a meeting of the Sym­ posium of Episcopal Confer­ ences of Africa lind 'Madagllscar.

rDrought and famine which have afflicted 24 sub-Saharan African countries have been par­ ticularly devastating in Ethiopia, where CRS estimates more than 6 million face starvation. CRS aid programs for Ethiopia are especially in need of cash donations at this point, said Hackett. "The situation is going to get worse before it gets better," he said. "Although we hope to move an incred'ible amount of food, we're only scratching the sur­ face. We need .more money to ,transport food' from the ports to :the people." 'Ms. Griffin said she hoped the Reagan administration's Oct. 25 decision to provide $45 minion in food aid to Ethiopia would in­ spire other groups to require aid.

SAMBATH RIM, (left) and the family he last saw in Cambodia in 1979. Standing at right are the Arruda family, their sponsors: Elise, 15, her father Ed, her sister April, 10, and her mother Mary. (Gaudette Photo) <.

Refugees are home Continued from page· one He ran a notice in his parish IbuHetin about the need and was gratified by the response. As well as the Arrudas, he said, five other families have volun­ teered to· sponsor Cambodian families. Last Friday the Arrudas began, tapping . community resources available to .their charges. They will g~t health checkups and . will soon start studying English in earnest, with the school-age children attending .the Frank Silvia School in 'Fall River which specializes in bilingual educa­ tion. , Another aid will be the big color TV installed in their apart­ ment as a gift from the Arrudas. Other fourniture, as well as cloth­ ing and kitchen equipment came from SS. Peter and Pa'ul parish­ ioners. More is needed, said Msgr. O'Neill, not only for the newly arrived family but for others ex­ pected in the ncar fouture. He said that donations may be ieft at SS. Peter a':ld Paul church or rectory at any time. . With Sambath to greet his family was his close friend Oum Ath, an 18-year-old Durfee sen­ ior who has been in. ·FaJl River for the 'past few months. The young men met in t,he Thailand refugee camp from whioh they were sent first to the Philippines, then to ,the U.S. Unlike Sambath, Oum has no family. At age 9 he' saw his parents and two brothers killed, while he was conscripted as a farm laborer. Eventually aible .to flee to Thailand, he and Sam­ bath regard themselves as brothers, thu.s Sambath's fam­ ily is now Oum's. The Arruda family are lowkey about their p'art 30' the resettle­ ment and, reuniting of .the Cam­ bodians. "We read about it in the par­ Ish bulletin," explained Mary Arruda "and we thought we had to do something." Her husband, downplaying his efforts, wanted to exprl:!ss grati-

tude-to the Fred V. Fow.ler Com­ pany of Boston, where he is an electronics engineer :in charge of servicing precision mea:suring instruments. "They let me take the day off to be hea:e," he ex­ plained. Mary, a homemaker health aide, ,will take some time from her parttime job to make sure the new arrivals get settled in. the community, where they join some 20 other Camboaian fam­ ilies who have arrived over the past five years. Meanwhile Chea Sarun, 45, . father of the family, and Ong Banyen, 40, the mother, ,look back over a saga ;that began five

years ago when they and the four chi-Idren they then had, ranging in age from 8 months to 3 years old, walked for three days from Camibodia before reaching safety in Thailand. Now they have found safety and their great desire is for edu­ cation for their children. April and Elise, taking ed'uca­ tion for granted, are chiefly ex­ cited about acquiring so many new brothers and sisters, said their mother. "They've adopted them," she laughed. Now ,the hope is 'that many more families like the' Arrudas will open their hearts to the 'thousands still 'awaiting homes.

Jesuit general

discusses Society

PORTLAND, Ore. (NC) - The following Interview with the Su­ perior General of the Society of Jesus, Father ,Peter-Hans Kol­ venbach, was conducted An Port­ land, Ore., on OCt. 19. The ques­ tioner was Jesuit Father Brad Reynolds, a freelance writer and photographer of the Oregon. pro­


I'm real.Jy not used to giving an­ swers itp all the questions that a man can !have. I don't under­ stand why' the general of ,the society should have to speak on all the problems of the world. He's just not equipped for that. That's also the reason why many times I personally have no thoughts on some problems in the church or problems in the world. Despite his disclaimer, Father Kolvenbach continued with a wideranging interview including comments on liberation theOlogy, the relation between religion and politics and the cause of tensions between rich and poor countries. He said that Jesuits in Latin America have reacted "very posi­ tively" to the Vatican's docu­ ment on liberation theology, noting that they were encouraged that the document stated the problem of the preferential love of the poor, that it stressed the need for a "true albthentic theo­ ,logy of integral ~iberation forman" and backed them in their work with the poor against charges they are Marxists. Father Kolvenbach noted the distinction between working with a political system and get­ ting directly involved in party politics.

Dear Dr. Kenny: My 13-year­ old daughter has made up h:et' mind to become a vegetarian. When she eats with us (which is becoming more rare) she turns up her ~ose at the meat dish. More often, she fixes herself a peanut butter' and jelly sandwich and walks around eating it in a holier than thou way. I don't want to make a· battleground of eating, but I am worried she may not' be properly nourished. What can I do? - lowS. Go along with her. If you are supportive, my guess is ·that her enthusiasm will last four to six weeks and then she will be back at table with the rest of the family. Thirteen is an age of spunk and independence. Sometimes the independence Js a legitimate protest against what is wrong . dnour society. At other times, the protest takes ,the form of childish rebelIion and disobedi­ ence.

Crossing bridges

By Denise M. GlIl11non Cape Cod members of the FaJl River diocesan chapter of the National Association of Pastoral Musicians are undeterred by dis­ tance, lonely roads or bad weather from attending meet­ ings and workshops. They "eave their 'lovely part of the world, cross the Bourne or Sagamore bridge and come enthusiastically to share and learn. In refilecting on the growth of our chapter of the Pastoral Mu­ sicians since Hs birth in 1980, I can't help but compare our development to the situation of our Cape Cod members. 'Bridge-crossing can occasion nervousness and sweaty palms. But to reach a destination, one must often find a courage that may be dormant. En route, we· may discover that our pilgrimage offers sights never before glimpsed. A bridge-eye view of scenery gives us new perspec­ tive. When our journey Js over and our feet are once again on terra firma, our outlook has gained a different dimension. We are enriched !because we chose to cross a bridge. In responding to specific Il"e­ quests of musicians, clergy and parishes, the concerns that have caused us to bridge-walk have found us appreciative of one another's gifts and strengths. For example, a growing con­ cern was the need for good cantor training. Thus Joanne Mercier, cantor at St. Mary's Cathedral, was asked by the chapter director Glenn Giuttari to direct a cantors' workshop. The result was a five-evening session presented in September jn Brewster and ,in October in Seekonk. Aspects of the cantor discusse~ included ministry spirituality, teamwork and vocal techniques. Working with Ms. Mercier were Giuttari and Father Joseph Costa. By accepting the challenge to leave their accustomed roles and "crossing the bridge" to share with !US In a new dimension, they made us aware of wealth we were not aware we had. Their diverse gifts and personalities made for a blockbuster forum. Other results have come from bridge-crossing. One of our board members also serves on the diocesan 'Divine Worship Commission which several years ago cosponsored with 'Us a pre­ sentation by Father· Eugene Walsh and on Oct. 21 cospon­ sored a program on .the Advent Cycles offered in Mattapoisett by Father Virgil C. Funk, NAPM founder. The commission wiH also, at our suggestion, take responsibil­ ,ity for a day of prayer and in­ struction for all ministries, scheduled for Nov. 18 at B:ishop Feehan High School, Attleboro. Cross those !bridges! AN of us have had days when we've asked: '~Must .I go over ,the bridge?" To discover what is waiting for us at the other end, yes. We who have committed our­ selves to a church ministry are responsible for Il"eaching out to others with joy and eagerness. It always involves crossing a

bridge of some kind. Some be­ gan the journey with us but be­ came discouraged and stopped. We are stild trying to persuade ~thers to join us. Those who have crossed, however, have discovered that the real heights along the way not only come fuoom looking at the. panorama from the bridge, but finding what is in the heart, once we've passed ,to the other side. Denise Morency Gannon is director of music at St. Mary's Church, South Dartmouth, and_ cochairperson of programmng for the dIocesan Pastoral Musi­ cians chapter.

Hunger justifies stealing food, .say bishops ROME ~.q - Hunger is so extreme in Brazil that starving people can take food that belongs to others without this being considered stealing, accor!iing to a pamphlet issued by the Brazil­ jan Catholic bishops. 'I1he 45-page pamphlet, citing U.N. and Brazilian government statistics, says that 86 miNion Brazilians eat Jess than the. 2,240 calories a day which is the mini­ mum diet presribed by the U.N. Food and Agrioulture Organiza­ tion. Brazi'l's total population :is 122 million. It also notes the effect of Bra­ zil's rampant ,inflation on work­ ing families, criticizes poor gov­ ernment economic policieS and accuses .the privileged class of manipulating the economy to their benefit. The pamphlet said that 100,000 Brazilian children are expected to die from hunger next year and to allow this means a ",tacit acceptance of genocide through omission." The !bishops' pamphlet was is­ sued as a study guide for the bishops' 1985 Brotherhood Cam­ paign which has as its theme "Bread for Those Who Are Hun­ gry." The pamphlet cites St. Thom­ as Aquinas, who said .that in ex­ treme cases "it Js 'lawful for a man to succor his own need by means of anothers property, by taking it either openly or secret­ Jy." The pamphlet said that "peo­ ple who legitimately possess 'material goods should not think of them as their own, but should consider them as part of the common good which should benefit others." The pamphlet blamed much of Brazil's problem on ,the poli­ cies of the military government. It asked the government to promote agrarian reform meas­ ~res and to cut arms spending and 'Use illhe money to heJp over­ come hunger. In combating hunger, the pam­ phlet opposed giving priorJty to birth control programs, caUing this the "false position of those who, instead of worrying about muJ,tiplying ,the bread at the table, are worried about ~essen­ ing the number of people who eat,"

How­ ever, such invitees also come to No real problem, since you re­ homes; for instance, the mail­ member to work around them. .But 'what about the meter man or ~ustomers at a garage reader who steps on the cracked sale. The law required that



homeowners take "reasonable" care to protect invitees on their oland from injury. As you might expect, "reasonable" can be a slippery word, its meaning vary­ ing with circumstances. What may be reasonable precautions for a large farm in Swansea might not be reasonable for a home in a densely populated area like New Dedford. A licensee is someone who enters your land with your con­ sent, but for reasons other than to benefit you. Typica'l examples are social guests, 'door to door salesmen, and children taking a shortcut through your yard with your permission. There has not been a duty to take precautions to make your land safe for'licen-, sees. However. there' has been a duty to warn the Hcensee of any .known dangers - a "beware of the second step" sign, a verbal warning to the guest about that towel rack. And of course the home owner could not injure the licensee through any willful or reckless conduct. The "trespasser" is famiHar to ail of us: the person who comes on your property without your premission. A trespasser can be anyone from a neighbor­ hood child cutting through your

garden to a burglar leaving your house with your TV set. The only duty the homeowner has owed to a trespasser is to re-. frajn from any wanton, willful, or reckless conduct that will in­ jure him or her. The homeowner isvirtual'ly ammune from liability to trespassers, as conduct must be of crimInal or almost pro­ portions to be wanton, willful or reckless. You may remember the Arkansas man who set a spring gun to catch a thief. Even though trespassing, the .thief collected Ii five figure stim for his spring g1un injury, since the property owner's action in set­ the gun was wanton and wiUful. If you're having some difficulty figuring out to whom you'd be responsible for what and when under these rules, rest assured that many a lawyer has had the same trouble for centuries. < Today, however, things are a little clearer. The Massachusetts courts recently revised the tra­ ditional rules, and eliminated the need to figure out what kind of a visitor i~ on your property be­ fore you know what duty of care you owe him. The new rule in Massachusetts is that a home­ owner owes a duty of "reason-

able care" to aU lawful visitors. That includes business invitees and licensees. It doesn't include trespassers - they aren't law­ fiul visitors. Trespassers, therefore, remain in a separate category. The duty towards adult trespassers re­ mains the same: you are 0n'ly required to refrain from wan­ tonly, willfully, or recklessly in­ juring them. The homeowner's du,ty toward child trespassers, however, has been changed. You now may be found liable for any injury to a child trespasser caused by your failure to use "reasonable care in keeping your property safe. This means that child tres­ passers are now protected to the same extent as lawful visitors. It's now a little easier to pre­ dict when you'll be liable to whom if you det those little re­ pairs go and someone gets hurt. But you're also going to be liable more often. The wise­ est course is to make sure your property is safe for everyone, all ,the time - especially your own family! The Murphys are attorneys at the South Shore Plaza in Braintree.

Trial ordered' fQr 8 .in papal assassination attempt ROME (NC) ~ An Italian In­ vestigating judge has indicted three Bulgarians and five Turks, including would-be papal assass­ in 'Mehmet Ali Agca, on oharges of conspiring to assassinate Pope John Paul II.


The indictment of the three Bulgarians, who at the time of the 1981 murder attempt worked for their govet:nment, lends sup­ port to the theory that the plot was ca.rried out by the Bulgar­ ian secret service on the orders of the Soviet secret police, the KGB.

Tel. 398·2285

Conspiracy theories' began surfacing after Agca was cap­ tured in 8t. Peter's Square, shortly after shooting the pope there. Those theories were fed by a 51-page opinion by the court panel which convicted Ag­ ca in July 1981. The opinion said . that Agca did not act alone, but added that "the evidence ac­ quired does not permit one at this time to unveil the identity of the promoters of the con­ spiracy." The murder attempt was "the fruit of a complex machination orchestrated by hidden minds interested in cheating new de­ stabHizing conditions according to the canons of a strategy which kn~ws no boundaries," the opin­ ion said. " A's Ita1il:m investigators un· earthed evidence" aided by a confession from' Agca, that Bul­ garian government officials might have been 'linked to the plot, the "Bulgarian' connection". theory









gained strength. The ,theory is Ibased on the general belief in Western intel­ ligence circles that the Bulgar­ ian secret service -is often used by :the Soviet tUnion to carry out international acts of terror­ ism, and that the Soviets wanted the Polish-born pope eliminated because his support for- Solidar­ ity, the independent Polish trade union, was stirring unrest in eastern Europe. On Oct. 26, Judge Hario Mar­ tella,chief investigator who pre­ pared the indictments, released only the charges and the Jist of the accused. The fuIl document is more than 1,000 pages long. The indictment did not lis't any motives, political or other­ wise, for the murder attempt against the pope. No trial 'date was given.

The indictments were issued against these Bulgarians: - Sergei Ivanov Antonov, 36, head of the Rome office of the Bulgarian state airline' at the time of the assassination at­ ,tempt, who has been under ar­ rest in Italy since Nov. 25, 1982. ......., Jelio Kolev VassiJev, 42, an attache at the Bulgarian em­ bassy in Rome at the time of the

Zbigniew ,Brzezinski and Henry Kissinger, both former national security advisers to DoS'. presi­ dents. There is mounting evidence that the KGB "was implicated in the most monumental assassina­ tion attempt carried out in this century that against the pope," said Brzezinski, former adviser to President Jimmy Carter, in an ,interview publish­ ed in La Stampa, the daily news­ paper of Turin, Italy. "There is no doubt ,that the investigation made by Italian au­ thorities has established the com­ plicity of Bulgaria in the attack against the pope," he was quoted as saying. "Those who know the reality of eastern Eu­ rope automatically deduce that the Soviet Union was in com­ mand of the operation." Previously, Kissinger had said in an interview with Cable News Network that former CIA Direc­ tor Richard Helms had told him the assassination attempt "had all the earmarks . . . of a KGB operation." Kissinger said he agreed be­

"It is futile and dangerous to seek clear nu· clear superiority" because "this can only' fuel the arms race," the 'Democratic candidate said. "We should instead negotiate a mutual and verifiable freeze on the arms race J'!ow, and then move on to mutual, verifiable and equitable reductions," he added. Mondale a-lso promised that "conventional forces will have priority in my defense bud­ get, which will grow at a rate of 3-4 percent a year," which is ,less than the cunrent rate. He said that "nothing else re­ veals more about the utter moral bankruptcy of the Reagan admin­ istration than their assault on the social suppor.t system. Their cynical approach has been to balance the budget on the backs of our nation's poor and elderly." in -the process cutting "more than $9 billion" ~n aid to "poor fami­ ,lies and children." Mondale proposed to "strength. en the hand" of Salvadoran President Jose Napoleon Duarte in £1 Salvador '''by channeling American aid through him and conditioning it on social justice." He also proposed working with the Contadora nations which have proposed 'steps toward peace in Central America, and seeking "agreements that would secure mutual nonintervention, withdrawal of all outside forces, including the Soviets and Cu­ Ibans in Nicaragua, and the ulti· mate demilitarization of Central America." - .Mondale cited "the danger­ ous budget deficit - $175.3 bi!­ Hon this year alone" - as the "most important domestic issue." He suggested changes in defense spending, "tough health care cost-containment," better man­ agement of agriculture programs, a cap on tax cuts for high-in­ come taxpayers, a 10 percent suroharge on incomes over $100,000 and other steps. - To reduce unemployment Mondale set a goal of "a job for every American who wants or needs one." He recommended creation' of "sustainable, Jong­ term economic growth;" voca­ tional training and retraining for displaced workers; revitalization of basic industries; putting peo­ ple to work repa-iring deteriora­ ting bridges, city s'ections and roads; investment tax credits for worker training and educa­ tion, and other measures.

If the teen wishes to continue to get help, he is given a re­ lease for to take to, his or her parents for their, signature.

Among new courses offered at F~ehan this year has been Achieving Social Justice: A Chris­ tian Perspective, which has been elected by 144 students. The course includes study of world problems such as over­ population, poverty, hunger, dis­ crimination, war and human ~n­ terrelationships. Students will approach these subjects via re­ search, role playing, media pre­ sentations and 'hearing lectures as well as by use of a textbook. Special attention will be given to ,the U.S. bishops' peace pas­ toral, to relevant Scripture ex­ cerpts and to the evolution of Catholic social teaching.

Although the scholastic fall sports season is not finished some champions have already been crowned. ,The Bishop Connolly High harriers, undefeated all season, have won the Division Three Southeastern Mass. Conference cross country crowns in both the boys' and girls' divisions and the Durfee High Topperettes' won the Division One champion­ sh~p. The Connolly sweep is be­ Jieved the' first such aohievement by any area school.

The Durfee girls' swim team posted its sixth championship season in the ,last seven years. The Topperettes displaced See­ konk which had dethroned Dur­ fee in 1983. Somerset is the Division Two conference champion, in VOlley­ ball and Case is the Division Two titlist in field hockey: After sharing the Division One vol-ley­ ball ohampionship with Case the past two seasons Durfee this, season owns ,the title outright.

Feehan, Stang Continue To Roll The Shamrocks of 'BishopFee­ han High School ran their un­ defeated record in conference Division Two footbal,l with a re­ sounding 35-14 victory over Wareham last weekend.

Feehan has two games remain­ ing in division action hosting Dennis-Ya,rmouth tomorrow and visiting -Bourne on Nov. 10. Dennis-Yarmouth is 0-3 Bourne I-I in conference play. Stang also stretched its un­ beaten streak in conference play to three 'games with a 35-26 rout of Seekonk in a Division Three contest. The victory boosted the 'Spartans' overall record to 6-1-0 overall. Stang had shared first place in the division with Case, which

dropped an 18-8 de'cision to .Digh­ ton-Rehoboth, which is now tied with Case for second place with 2-1-0 records. Stang is host to­ morrow to Case in what has to be considered a crucial game for both. The Warriors of Coyle~Cassidy

nipped the Old Rochester Bull­ dogs, 14-12, for their first vic­ tory in the conference's Division Three. Coyle..cassidy, now 1-3 in division and 2-5 overall meets Taunton High tonight in a non-league encounter and is at Bishop Stang on Nov. 10.

The picture has some bright moments, but doesn't seem able 10 choose between light comedy and fairly serious drama. Some very ibrief nudity in a comic context. A3, PG "Places in the Heart" (Tri-Star) A young widow (Sally I Field) copes after her husband's death in Depression-era rural Texas. Despite some shortcomings, an impressive accomplisment and a moving and quite entertaining film. A2, PG "The Adventures of BUckaroo Banzai" (Fox) A sci-fi spoof more amusirig to hear about than ,to see, though the always dependable John Lithgow scores as a mad scientist. Some comic­ ally intended violence, but the film is mostly innocuous. A2, PG "Country" (Buena Vista) A very good film about an Iowa family trying to keep its farm despite dnterest due on massive government loans extended, in more prosperous times. A Jittle predictable with a heroine per­ haps too courageous and noble, but admirable ,nevertheless._ Some humorous byplay oc­ casioned by a nosy young sister discovering contraceptives dn her big brother's room makes this questionable fare for younger viewers.

loving son trying to fulfill his dying mother's wish -to meet Greta Garbo. Entertaining but hard to take unless you share the film's mood of New York­ style liberal humanism and sub­ scribe to the Garbo mystique. Because of the movie's'insistence that death is the end of every­ thing and its - callous depiction of the coliapse of a marriage, it is rated A3, PG-13.
