Hierarchy Charts Annual Program at Conference In Nation's Capital WASHINGTON (NC)-The activities of the. Catholic Church in the United States continue to grow in "variety and extent." . Reports of departments and bureaus of the National Catholic Welfare Conference submitted to the annual general meeting of the archbishops and

b ish 0 p s of the country show that many questions, national and international in character, were studied and

dealt wth in the course of the last year. Archbishop Francis P. Keough of Baltimore, chairman of the NCWC Administrative Board, told the meeting at the Catholic University of America here that "as our facilities and services be­ come more widely known," the NCWC receives more and more "requests for information and service, not only from individu­ als, institutions and dioceses in this country, but from abroad." The Archbishop reported that "during the year there were many major developments of an international character' which I:equired study, representation, and at times, action." He listed a dozen, including the placement of hundreds of Catholic students who fled to the Uriited States after the Hungarian revolt of October-November, 1956. But he added that "the list could be prolonged indefinitely," and re­ flected the "forced involvement" of NCWC "in matters not com­ monly thou'ght of as falling within the competence of any specific department" of the con­ ference.

Need for Better Science Program Cited by Bishop

NEW YORK (NG) - A leading Catholic art author­ • ity has scored modern art's retreat from what he termed

WASHINGTON (NC)­ Former rector of the Catho­ lic University of America, Bishop Bryan J. McEntegart of Brooklyn, has been awarded the Cardinal GibJ:>ons medal by the University's Alumni Asso-' eiation. In accepting it, Bishop M~En­ tegart reviewed his 40 years at the university. He pointed out that when he entered the school in 1917 as a student, t.here were only 17 million Catholics in the nation.. "I found a university 28 years old and comparatively small The student population was rela­ tively small and exclusively masculine. The number of course offerings and the size of the faculty were in proportion," he explained. University Expands Today, the former rector said, Catholics have doubled in the nation and the univer6ity has de­ veloped correspondingly. He ealled attention to the current $7 mil~ion expansion' program at the· school and emphasized that such development was depen­ dent on the $3.6 million Building Development Program pledged by the Bishops of the nation. Bishop· McEntegart said' he foresaw 'a greater emphasis on scientific educational programs at the urtiversity. . The joltof the·Soviet satellite, he said, '~has pushed us to the stark realization that if we are to survive; if we are to escape the slavery of a tyrannous ideol-. ogy, we must have more and bet- . ter scientific education."

It is as if man were back in a primitive state before there was ·a fire." , Mr. Reed said "we have denied ourselves the fire of ,another kind, the fire of glory, and our art now stands raw about us." Blaming the Modernists. the Functionalists and the notion of progress in art for this situation, Mr. Reed looked to the day that a new Prometheus would "revive the fire of classical beauty on a scale unknown in the American Renaissance." This Prometheus, he said, \ would find support from many sources, sucH as the individual, the government, the corporation, 0 the university, and the Church. "it would appear inevitable," he conclUded, "that the Catholic Church might well have the most active role in guiding the arts of the future."

Archbishop Cushing Notes Catholic Education Need

Thurs., Nov. 14,1957

Christianot.y Is

Key to Unity

A1'chb'ishop Richard I. Cushing of Boston noted the med of Catholic school education when he spoke to 3,4001 110luntee1' w01'kers f.Q1· the Catholic Mem01'ial High School drive 'in New Bedford. The following account of the Arch­ bishop's talk is reprinted from The New Bedford Standard Times t01' those people in other parts ot the diocese. "Tomorrow (Thursday) is the 40th birthday of the Bolshevik revolution, the aftermath of an international conspiracy known as Communism. "1 know of no better way of meeting this than to inaugurate nn appeal for a regional Catholic high school. We are destined to live in a war-time economy­ whether hot or cold it makes ,no difference. Your children and grandchildren will bear the brunt of brain-washing, blasphemy and other forms of deceit of Commu­ nism. We must train our children to follow Christ on our side against the anti-Christ repre­ sented by Communism." The prelate added that Communists fear the Catholic Church more than capitalism. .'irst School Is Home ' The "first school for children" , is the home, the archbishop con­ tinued. "Long before we send them to school, their character has been formed. In elementary schools, the teachers build. on the best influence of the homes and try to correct any evil tendencies in the child, "The primary purpose of Cath­ olic education is to train Christ­ like children, bringing them into the City of God and making them loyal citizens' of the United States of America." Archbishop Cushing described the secondary level of education as "the most critical period" in the life of a child. He told of the adverse influence of some publi­ cations and broadcasts on the youth of the nation. ' "In providing Catholic educa­ tion for the training of loyal citi­ zens for the City of God and of our country we are not in oppo­ sition to other forms of educa­ tion," continued the Boston pre­ late. "We are not opposed to the public schools. The' public schools in Massachusetts are ex­ cellent insofar as they can, go in educational programs. We c0­ operate with them. Their teach­ , ers are dedicated workers. , Sats .God Needed "On the other hand, we con­ tend that to educate children for time and eternity, we, ~eed to have God in education." The prelate explained this can­ not be done in the public schools "because ot the plurl;llistic reli­ , gions ' we have" in the, public schools. The answer is, said the speaker, the building of Catholic schools: He added the day of institutions and parishes building their own individual schools has passed. Such projects now re­ quire a broader scope on a dio­ cesan basis because of the costs involved. Archbishop Cushing repeated that the bishop, there­ fore, is held responsible for Cath­ olic education within his diocese. "The bishop is the chi~f teacher and in order to teach children, he must have the facili­ ties,", the archbishop assured. "In the name of Christ, he gives his mandate to priests and laity to supply the facilities. "You are not collectors, sales­ men or beggars. You are the hands and feet-the alter ego of the bishop-and your bishop is the successor of the Apostles. You are identified with a great apostolate-the greatest of all phases of Catholic Action, or better, the lay apostolate." Situation Frightening Referring to Communism in contrast with aims of the Cath­ olic church, Archbishop Cushing said "This diabQlical system al­ ready controls over one billion of the human race. If you put all the people in a row, every third person ~ould be under Communism. It is frightening." What accounts for the spread of Communism, said the prelate, is "the missionary spirit of the individual Communist. He is an apostle of anti-Christ, and they laave tremendous solidarity. "If we had one-half. of the' Comni'unist solidarity, zeal and lDj'alty. there wouldn't be any

observance of the 40th anniver­ sary of that system today. We can counteract the zeal of the Communist with the zeal of the lay apostolate of the Catholic Church. . "You have a challenge on the 40th anniversary of Communism. It is to build a regional Ca,tholic high school where the first apos­ tles will pray for the priests and laity." Not Overshooting Mark As a priest who has collected millions of dollars annually in the archdiocese of Boston and who requires $15,000 daily to maintain institutions of the arch­ diocese, Archbishop Cushing de­ clared, "Don't let anyone tell you that you are overshooting the mark. Others have done it in smaller are'as than this." The guest' speaker assured there is no other practical way of raising the fund than by the method Bishop Connolly has taken. Elements needed for its success, he added, are a cause, organization, adequate coverage of the area and a spirit of sacri­ fice both on the part of the workers and the donors. "The eyes of the entire'Diocese of Fall.,River are on this drive," continued the archbishop. "The eyes of every bishop and all of the well-informed priests are focused on it also.'" The prelate assured there is no profit in building a school and that he would like to see the school paid for "before the first pupil crossed the threshold." Archbishop Cushing closed by wishing the men success, then bestowed his blessing upon them. He was followed by Bishop Con­ nolly who imparted his blessing. Archbishop Contributes Bishop ,Connolly announced further that the Archbishop has personally contributed ' a sub­ stantial sum of money to the Drive in memory, of the late Bishop Cassidy. This - is surely another sign of the Archbishop's interest in this, his neighboring diocese.

Antarctica Winter Nights Fascinating

PITTSBURGH (NC) - "Con­ trary to what books about-Ant­ arctica consistently lead one to believe," writes Father (Lt.) Leon S. Darkowski, "the, winter night holds no terror; in fact, it is fascinating." Father Darkowski, a Pittsburgh diocesan priest, is now serving as a Navy chaplain for Operation Deepfreeze II in the Antarctic. He wrote a dispatch on his activ­ ities for the Pittsburgh Catholic, diocesan newspaper. The chaplain left the United States last January and is sched­ uled to spend part ,of 1958 in the Antarctic.

Foreign Minister told a meeting in honor of St. John Capistrano A number of Church digni­ taries and' statesmen, many of them from other European coun­ tries, heard Alberto Martin Ar­ tajo, now president of Spanish Catholic Action, compare the European situation in the 15th century when St. John Capistran led the Crusade against the Turks to that of our own day. Pointing out that it was the Hungarians who bore the brunt of battle under the heroic lead­ ersip of John Hunyadi in 1456 and turned the Turks away from Europe, he said that Hungary is again in the forefront of the battle against anti-Christian forces. Quoting His Holiness Pope Pius XII, Mr. Artajo said that only a return to the spirit of Christianity can bring about the unity which Europe seeks on economic and political leveu. today.

NEW YORK (NC)-The

Church's position in Poland has "definitely improved" over the past year and ahould continue to improve, a Yisiting Polish Bishop said here. He is Auxiliary Bishop Karol Pekala of Tarnow, who arrived here on the first leg of a two­ month tour of the United States. As the representative of His Eminence Stefan Cardinal Wy­ szynski, Primate of Poland and the Polish Episcopate's Commit tee on Charity, Bishop Pekala will meet with the directors of various Catholic and Polish­ American relief agencies on taeilitating aid to Poland. Close to Hierarch,. Interviewed in his apartment at the Daughters of Mary resi­ dence here, the 55-year-old pre­ late spoke with great feeling of the renewed vitality of his coun­ try's traditional Catholicism. "The Polish nation has re­ eeived an excellent mark in its religious examination," he ob­ served. "Nowhere in the world do people pray as wonderfully as in Poland." He said a .strong bond unites the people and the Polish hier­ archy, a fact he attributes to shared sutferings since World War II. Asked if last year's "bread and freedom" riots were-as reported in many secular newspaper­ without religious significance, Bishop Pekala replied: '. Freedom of Conscience : "Nothing could be further from the truth. In the minds of the Polish people, personal free­ dom cannot be separated from freedom' for the Catholie Church." Since the Poznan riots 'of .June, 1956, which resulted.in the. ouster of the government's Stal­ inist clique and the ascendancy of Wladyslaw Gomulka as Com­ munist Party head, the Polish Episcopate h!ls arrived at a "mOdus vivendi" with the gov­ ernment, the Bishop said. For instance, in' the critical area of religous education, in­ struction is provided during the .frst eleven veal'S of school, or through the' equivalent of the second year of college. · The new constitution, how­ eYer, provides for "freedom of conscience," he explained. As a result, secular schools have been established in' certain areas where the majority of the people voted against religious instruc­ tion.

,American Religious' Revival

TODAy-St:Josaphat, Bishop­ Martyr. The first of the Orien­ tals to be canonized formally in Rome, he was a native of Vladi­ mir, Poland, and became a priest of the Order of St. Basil. He worked tirelessly and performed rigorous penances for the extinc­ tion of the Eastern schisms. He became Archbishop 0 f Polotsk and increased his efforts among schismatics, winning many converts. Although warned against visiting a parish in Witepsk, overrun by schismatics, he faced the danger and was put ' to death by enemies of the Church on November 12, 1623. He was canonized by Pope Pius IX in 1867.

They said that from the testi­ mony of 14 witnesses "certain facts clearly emerge."

i;: I

Bead of the House shouts.

"Sh-h, Daddy," comes a stage whisper from the phone stand as First Answerer puts hand over mouthpiece. "It's probably not for you, anyway."

Whether it is or not for him, the reason why the Head of the

House refuses to let us say he is at dinner is a mystery. More polite, perhaps, to be "not in"? Technically, according to the moral theologians we've read, the "he's not in" is no infringe­ ment of the eighth command:" ment, meaning simply that he is "not in~ to the' caller' at that particular time. But, morals beside the point, when it is for the' Head of the Bouse and the caller hears that vociferous voice, sure to be 'rec­ ognized, well"":"it takes a little

explaining.' One Well known ruse is, "Pleace excuse me while

I turn', down the radio," hoping that the one at the, ,other - end thinks' that '8 news broadcaster is a cabinet officer who is no ,longer in~r' something of the ~rt. " , None of the rest of us has the

eourage-or laok of curiosity­ to give any excuse at all for not answering a phone call specific­ ally for us. . . , Other Calls Follow The interrupted grace and din­ ner proceed. Call number two comes almost on the final good­ bye of call number one. Then follow numbers thl'ee, four and five unto the end of the meal. A rotation scheme that sprang into being almost automatically at our house and is 100 per cent effective is this: The person who received the last call is the one ,who mtist ans~er the next one. It just might be a call we'd hate to miss, though some, we con­ fess, we could easily live with­ out:

, "May I put your name down as a committee member?" "Our man will. be in your neighborhood tomorrow and we'd like to 'make an e~timate." "What TV/radio progra~ are ;you watching/listening to?" "Congratulations! Your name bas been drawn to receive a free dance lesson." "We have an unbeatable mag­ azine subscription offer you can't afford to miss." . "You've undoubtedly heard of Quiet Hill? Well, we have a few choice lots left and every family must prepare for these things..." And for Ginny: "What an­ swer'd you get to that third problem? Did Sister say we had to do both columns?" For the teen-agersJ any call is better than nothing, and they never are in a hurry to terminate any conversation. Might Be Real So it goes. The phone could be silent for hours, but just let us start dinner-whether it be early qr late-and the jangle begins. The Head of the House is all for pulling out the plug-by infer­ ence letting people know we're ~not in"-but we talked him' out of that notion. ' Cooling foo~, the annoyance of

.

Johnny or Lu, asking for a baby sitter or just wanting to say hello;

Aunt Virginia, Aunt Margaret or other'relatives; , One of a' number of young men; One of a number of girl friends, or older friends; A long distance call from out west; -,' A similar call from our bride­ and-groom, Eileen and Tony, in Bristol, Virginia.

Moral Problem

THE ANCHOR \

In Modern Women's Dress

Continued From Page ODe of clothing: hygiene, modesty and decorum. He declared that these three principles are so. deeply rooted in nature that they cannot be disregarded or con­ tradicted without creating re­ pulsive. results. By hygienic requirements, the PQpe said, he meant those con­ siderations concerned mostly with climate, its variations and .other similal> external factors. Even here, he said, climate con­ ditfons must not be used as a pretext to justify license. By tile "natural demand of modesty," he said he referred to the obvious 'necessity of covering the body out of consideration for the sensitiveness of others and as a "shield against disordered sen­ auality." The third reason governing clothing fashions, which is de­ corum, he said, responds to the innate need, especially felt by women, to enhance the beauty and dignity of the person.. The Pontiff attacked the no­ tion that modesty is merely the result of a particular kind of education. He said: "The singular opinion that at­ tributes the sense of modesty to this or that education • • • is a false product of civilization, a stimulus for dishonesty and a source of hypocrisy, and is not supported by any serious rea·son. "On the contrary, it (this theory) encounters an explicit condemnation in the resulting repugnance in which those are viewed who dare to adopt it as a way of life. Thus the rightness of common sense, manifest in universal usages, is confirmed." The Pope took note of the great influence wielded by fash­ ion designers and called on them' to use it for good. He reminded that their influence has a social impact which can actually shape· public habits. Theater and Films He told ·the designers that "in .tyle, more than in any other activity,. the' people wish to be guided·· * • It is necessary there­ fore that your actions should be proper. "Among those,' furthermore, who at present time are with great effectivene&ll guiding pub­ lic tastes, are celebrities espe­ cially in the world of the theater and films." The Pope urged the designers to try to bring at leas' a few of the top personalities over "to the 100d cause." Some challenge the fact that "such an exterior contingent and relative fact as fashion" could 'really involve a moral problem, the Pope noted. But, he coun­ tered, in fashions, as in art, sci­ ence, politics' and similar activ­ ities, the subject is man, who cannot escape from directing these activities to his ultimate and supreme end. He added:

"There is, therefore, a moral problem of styles, not only in that they constitute a generically human activity, but more specif­ ically in that this activity is carried out in a field which en­ tails, or is at least very close to, evident moral values and even more in so far as the' aims of styles, honest in themselves, are more exposed to being confused by the wicked tendencies of a human nature degraded by orig­ inal sin, and of being changed into occasions of sin and scanda!. "The Church, however, does not censure or. condemn styles when they are meant for the proper decorum and ornamenta­ tion of the body. But she never fails to warn the faithful against being easily led astray by them," the Pope said. Immodest Styles "This positive attitude of the Church derives from reasons far' higher than the mere esthetic and hedonistic considerations which have been elevated by a return of paganism," he said. "She knows and teaches that the human body, Which is God's masterpiece ili. the visible world, and which has been placed at the service of the soul,"'Was ele­ vated by the Divine Redeemer­ VOICE OF DEMOCRACY SPEAKERS: Jesus Mary to the rank of a temple and an instrument of the Holy Spirit, Academy, Fall River, students chosen to participate in and as such must be respected. the preliminary oratorical contest Nov. 19 at Hotel Mellen "Its beauty must therefore not are left to right, .seated, Claire Delisle and Diane Caron; be exalted as an end in itself, . much less in such guise as will standing, Jacqueline Caron and Pauline Beaulieu. defile that given dignity."

Emphasizes C'ritical Shortage of Priests

FORT WAYNE, (NC) A diocesan-wide program for vo­ cations has been launched to meet a situation which Bishop Leo A. Pursley of Fort Wayne terms "critical." During the year-long program Bishop Pursley will visit each of the diocese's 80 parishes to of­ fer a Pontifical Low Massfor vo­ cations. All youths from sev­ enth grade through high school are expected' to attend the Masses.' , Father James P. Conroy, di­ ocesan director of vocations, wiiI 'visit each parish to speak about , vocations. Bishop Pursley, called the di­ ocesan outlook for new priests "dismal." He said he had to . seek additional priests from out­ side the diocese. He warned he may have to reduce the number of priests working in individual parishes.. "It is not exclusively the Bishop's problem and it' cannot be ,solved by him alone,'" the Indiana Ordinary remarked.

'GIVE. The 'word "came" marks His en­

trance into this earthly life,' and the, word

"give" marks His departure from this

earthly life. But to "give" what? His Life!

For our redemption! In other words, His

miSsion was SACRIFICE,

"The servant ,is not above the Master," said He. To be Christlike then, we must be interested in the redemption of the pagan world. But to achieve this goal we must not merely give; we must sacrifice. And how our Catholic people are learning this lesson!

Men, women, and children huddle-in whatever cover they can find until the rain passes. In the evening they say thcir prayers together and sing songs in the evening when the Church doors are closed. At daybreak they all attend Mass, babies and old folks, and sing an4 pray together for another hour. Their Faith is their strength in exile!

Says American Religious Pluralism Is Problem Yet to Be Solved NOTRE DAME (NC)-A point has been reached on the Amer­ ican scene when the conflicting view of Protestants and Cath­ olics toward religion in a plural­ istic society must be worked out. Jesuit Father Joseph H. Fich­ ter, head of the sociology de­ partment at Loyola University of the South, New Orleans, made this point while speaking of reli­ gious pluralism as a "distinctly American problem." . Except Religion Speaking at a symposium on "Roman Catholicism and the American Way of Life," spon­ sored by the University of Notre Dame's history department, .. Father Fichter said: "American Catholics seem to accept a notion, 'pluralism in everything except religion. American Protesants seem to say "pluralism in everything includ­ ing religion.' " "A free society like ours," the sociologist continued, "resists authoritarian coercion to a basic, integrating, and over-arching value system such as the Cath­ olic Church claims to. possess. We are now at a point in history when this conflict of viewpoints has to be worked o~t, and the continued Americanization of

Catholicism . will. depend upon the way in which the solution is attempted." Striking Similarity These were the conclusions of Father Fichter's paper entitled "Americanization of Catholi­ cism" in which he traced the his­ torical processes of sociocultural integration of Catholic imIP.:­ grants into the American :;.:ene. The priest did not otf-::.r an ex­ plantation as to ho';" t.he solution must be reached. The Jesuit scholar said, that· "becoming American does not mean dissolving all differences, losing identity, and melting into the general masses of the ~popu­ lation. Catholics do not cease to be Catholics when they be­ come Americans; they cease to be Irish, or German, or French, or Polish." . "There is an interesting simi­ larity here," Father Fichter said, "between world-wide Catholi­ cism and culture-wide Amer­ icanism. The Catholic Church embraces people of all nationali­ ties, . who are Catholics despite their national and ethnic differ­ ences. The United States em•. braces people of all religions, who' are Americans despite their religious differences."

Bishop Hits Atheistic Professors

Continued From Page One Thomas K. Gorman, Honorary President. Speakers at the convention in­ cluded William A. Murray, sub­ scription manager of ,the New York Times; Thomas A. Bren­ nan, attorney' for the Hearst Publications and Counsel for the C.P.A.; James D. Alberse, circulation promotion manager for the Time-Life Corporation; Charles Kiley, feature editor ot' the New York Herald Tribune. Atheists Fools Principal speaker at the Con­ vention banquet was the Hon. Robert Morris, chief counsel for the U. S. Senate Internal Secur­ ity Sub-Committee: Mr. Morris spoke of the role of the Catholic Press in the battle of words where the Communist war is being waged more effectively than in any other section of the struggle which is, essentially, an ideological one. The Most Rev: George W. Ahr, Bishop of Trenton, spoke of the Catholic journalists' obligation to the Whole Truth. His talk follows: "As Catholic journalists you have an obligation to the Whole Truth.. I mention this because for some time now we have been 'subjected to a rather pronounced propaganda of silence. We are being told that we should not speak about certain things lest perchance we offend someone. The latest manifestation of this mentality was an invitation that was issued to us recently to inaugurate a kind of permanent "Be Kind to Atheists Week." Now, I have no great difficulty or hesitancy about being kind to anyone. (I am even kind to ani­ mals.) But I wonder sometimes where the real kindness lies. The Holy Spirit did not think it unkind to call atheists fools. "The f<;>ol hath said in his heart there is no God." But even so, il anyone wishes to be a fool that will be no reason for me to be unkind to him. .God-Given Rights "But suppose a particular fool, a professor of political science, on the first day of class in laying down the 'presuppositions' of his course, says to a group of gulli­ ble, uncritical, hero-worshiping freshmen: 'Gentlemen, if any of you have any delusions about God-given rights, you might just as well put them aside right now. There are no God-given rights because there is no God to give them.' Is it unkind to point out that this gentleman is destroying the foundation of all religion? Is it unkind to point out that he is also undermining the founda­ tions .of our government? It seems that I have heard that our government is founded on the 'presupposition' that all men are created equal and that they are

endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights. Inconsistent Intellectuals "It is a strange anomaly that if you dare to present the truth -the whole truth, you run the danger of being charged with anti-intellectualism. For years now I have been living in a fool's paradise. I used to think that to be an intellectual all that was , necessary was to have an intel­ lect and to use it honestly and fearlessly in the pursuit of truth. There were moments when I toyed with the'idea that I might even be an intellectual. myself. But now I have it on the highest authority that I am wrong on both counts. To be anintellec­ tual I am informed that you must not be intellectually committed to anything. In English that means either that there is no truth or that the inteilect cannot discover the truth, or that it cannot know it with certainty. As an intellectual you may have an opinion. But you may not say that you are right. And above all you may not say that anyone else is wrong. This kind' of intellec tualism is the equivalent of uni­ versal skepticism. "I could not possibly be an in­ tellectual because I am com­ mitted to the' Apostles Creed:. Neither can any other Catholic be this kind ot' an intellectual because presumably they too are committed to the' Apostles Creed. And conversely this kind of an intellectual cannot be very much of a Catholic!"

Traveller in Rome Fluent Account of City's History'

Lourdes Pilgrimage Aids Handicapped

By Rt. Rev. Msgr. John S. Kennedy No city in the world has as much to offer the intelli­ gent traveller as Rome. No writer of travel books has as much to offer the intelligent reader as H. V. Morton. It was inevitable, then, that when the latter undertook to write of the former, the $3.95), Beth Day rehearses the result would be memorable. story of Vincent Tracy who at Such is the case, as a fascin- 30 held a top position in a lead­ ated persual of Mr. Morton's ing New York ~tore; at 35 was a A Traveller in Rome (Dodd, Mead. $6) proves. The boo k' s title is modest. It might imply that the author did hardly more than pass trippingly through the E t ern a 1 City. But evidently he has visited it often over the years, and he spent leveral months there before attempting the present work. Besides, it is obvious that he read' widely and wisely in preparation for his task. His is not a systematic guide book brisk, impersonal, and exhaustive. There is a great deal in and about Rome on which he does not touch at all. Rather, he roamed the city, week after week, early and late. He successively took rooms in four very different quarters. He observed, conversed, read, reflected, And out of all this comes a personal account. flu~nt and highly readable, on WhICh ~e character and history of the Incomparable city are effortlessly c~rried home to the reader. Steeped In History "To live in a permanent state of historical or archaeological areness in Rome would be to : : mad," Mr. Mort~n rightly remarks: Every inch of the city is steeped in history. Or it would be more precise to say that every i h of the city, has beneath it s~:atum after stratum of the past, in continuity. In another place he says "Everything in Rome stands ~pon something older.", This is almost daily verified whenever excavations for new buildings are made. , Of a' visit to the Passionist monastery and the Church of St. John and St:Paul on the Caelian Hill, Mr. Morton writes, "Side by <, side with the monastery is a glorious mediaevel bell tower 'erected upon the titanic arches' of the temple of, Claudius, ,there is also a church whose porch was built by the only English Pope, Hadrian IV, eight centuries ago, and the facade has been restored recently by Cardinal Spellman of New York, who is the titular Cardinal. .. Within a few yards, side by side, are the arches of the Claudian temple, the graves of two martyrs, an ancient Ro­ man palace, a mediaeval cam­ panile, the bones of St. Paul of the Cross, the restorations of an American Cardinal, and - a film studio!" Mr. Morton tells us of churches and palaces, of fountains, 'steps, and piazze, of the remains of antiquity and the window dis­ plays of clerical tailors, of statues centuries old and the roar of motorbikes, of the catacombs and Trastevere restaurants, and so' on and on. It is all knowl­ edgeable and vivid, and although his is a very long book, ·one is sorry to ~ome to the end of it. For it brings Rome alive-or, rather, Rome after Rome. It is packed with detail about pagan Rome of the Republic and the, Empire, about the beginnings and development of Christian Rome, about Rome repeatedly sacked by barbarians, about mediaeval Rome, Papal Rome, Rome as the capital of a united Italy. Mr. Morton is not a Catholic, but appreciates Rome's place in Christiandom arid can alinost never be faulted for misinter­ pretation. He has written a book teeming with information, rich in charm, and sure to spur many on the great adventure of discovering Rome. No Hiding Place In No Hiding Place (Holt.

LONDON (NC)-An English orthopedic' specialist has ap­ pealed for help to take a pil­ grimage of severely handicapped children to Lourdes for next year's centenary. Dr. Michael Strode said that the greatest difficulty in treating the crippled, blind, spastic and otherwise handicapped children in his care was their lack of will power-till he got the idea in 1954 to take four of his worst cases to Lourdes. The results were so successful that he has taken a party there every year since then, the number this year being 43. Dr. Strode said a trust has been set up for the purpose, spe­ cial traveling equipment bought and volunteer nurses enrolled to travel with the invalids.

MALAPPURAM, India (NC) -In its first SIX months of rule .the communist regime in Kerala has appointed 'more than 9,000 communists to government com­ mittees, a Catholic politi~ leader reports. P. T. Chacko, Catholic leader of' the opposition in the Kerala legislature, said. that the commu­ nists have created about 460 cofnmittees during its first six months in power. Ruling by committees is one .of the prin­ ciples of administration adopted . by Kerala's· Red government. Mr. Chacko said that, beyond providi!1g employment for some 9,000 communist party members, the new government. has done nothing tangible to improve the lot of the people and that unem­ ployment generally is still as acute as ever.. The Indian state's opposition. leader said the communist ap­ pointees have immense potential to influence voters through their strategic positions.

Meanwhile, the Catholic Stu­ dents' Union of Kerah has warned its members against c0­

operating with the activities of

the' communist-sponsored Stu­ dents' Federation. The Catholic student group said that the federation is the "mouthpiece" of the communist .' 'party in the student world. It banned CatholicS'from becoming members of 'the federation.

Sports Chatter

Coyle High Gridmen Aiming For Class C Championship By Jack Kineavy Somerset High School Coach

The int~rscholastic football season is now well into the stretch and headin' home. Saturday's program is the last regularly scheduled set of week-end competitIon prior to the annual Thanksgiving Day games on Nov. 28. Traditionally. ~os~ schools The Durfee-Wareham game prefer to remam lqle the was quite a tussle. Coach UJ'ban's Saturday before T u r key team was really "up" for this Day. In this area Dart­ one and until the Capester's mouth vs. New Bedford Voca­ tional was the lone contest orig­ inally scheduled. The "flu" and inclement weather raised havoc with the schoolboys this Autumn, and it may well be that some of the schools involved may choose to play their postponed games on the off-weekend. Foremost in the list of. post­ ponements are Coyle-New Bed­ ford, Somerset-Falmouth, and Case-Falmouth. The New Bed­ ford game could mean a great deal to Coach Jim Burns' War­ riors who are very much in the running for the Class C title. By what means the dilemma posed by Falmouth's having yet to play both Somerset and Case will be resolved-short of· ex­ tending the season that is-re­ mains to be seen; 'Narry oper­ ates on the point system, two for a win, one for a tie. Conceivably, the unplayed games with Fal­ mouth may have a real bearing on the determination of a league champion inasmuch as Somerset and Case, together with Dart­ mouth, are prime contenders. Warriors Favored This week's Bristol County schedule lists all teams in action though only three league tilts are carded. The circuit's number one attraction is the Coyle-Durfee clash at Alumni Field,' Fall River. Historically, this was for­ merly the County's stellar Vet-.. erans' Day attraction, but with the holiday falling on Monday this year and subsequently dur-' lng the week for the next few years, it was decided to move the game back to a Saturday date. " Coyle undefeated and untied in six starts should rule a pro­ hibitive favorite' over Durfee which' boasts but one .victory in five outings. But again this is one of, thosetraditiorial games in which anything can happen. Coach Urban's team is much stronger than its record indi­ cates. The Hilltoppers lost their last two starts (Fairhaven and Ware­ ham)·after leading in both games well into the fourth and final period. The loss of quarterback Stan Kupiec, injured in the late stages of the Fairhaven tilt, has been a severe blow to Durfee. However, his understudy, Char­ ley . Carey, performed creditably t f I ' . agams power u Wareham, plck­ . i ng off. an errant Capeway aenal h tdo register t e first Durfee touch­ own. Home~oming Day For Warriors Tony Correia and Ted Reilly it'll be Homecom­ ing Day in a 'tense. Both boys are Fall River natives. Tony splits the quarterbacking chores with Brockton's Bob Freccero, while Ted hold~ down a starting job at end. Among other local personnel on the Coyle squad are the Barteks, Fred and Peter, who hail from Somerset. Both have played vital roles in the War­ riors' successes to date. Fred's interception of a Fairhaven pass on Coyle's one-yard line stopped an imminent Blue score last Sat­ urday. At the time Coyle had a slim 7-0 lead. The, ranks of the unbeaten, un­ tied schools in the area now number only Coyle and Ware­ ham. The Warriors personally accounted for the thinning of the files, first downing North Attle­ boro 36-0 then belting Fairhaven 35-0. Against the latter, Coach Burns' team again' displayed a versatile. scoring punch. George Arguin, senior halfback from New Bedford, led the foray with two touchdowns. Boyle, Freccero and Gazzola each" scored one. The Fairhaven- shutout was the fourth of the year for the stout Warrior defense w~ich has al­ lowed its combined opponenu eDly two touclldoWDa a1l7ear.

C

aerial circus began to click in the fourth stanza, it appeared that the Hilltoppers were about to pull off the upset of the sea... son. , However, Coach <?lem Spil­ lane s crew reacted With a ven­ geance 'when faced with a 13-2 fourth period deficit ·much as they had the w~ek previous when Attleboro had them 13-0 with slightly more than three minutes remaining. Wareham won that one 14-13 and they turned on Durfee to register a 21-13 victory. The running of Tom Eccleston spear­ headed the Capesters attack. Tom also demonstrated passing finesse as did his lefthanded counterpart, Ken Borsari. These boys. combined to pitch Wareham to a 19-0 baseball record last' Spring. Their catcher, Gene Lopes, center and co-captain of the grid squad, proved himself ·thebest' defensive lineman' on the field. For Durfee, Dick Bona­ lewicz and Gerry Elias did yeo­ man jobs and the interior Hill­ topper forward wall outplayed the visitors throughout most of the afternoon. City Title Taking a' look around the county, New Bedford has a,fine attraction Saturday in the an-, nllal High versus Vocational tra-. ditional tilt upon which hinges ' the city title. Yoke is winless to date but their .explosiye offense has worried all opponents thus far. "Scooter" Morris and George Harrison are a dual threat and the passing tandem McMullen to GOqles presents constant harass­ ment to the enemy .secondary. The Crimson, on tl\e other hand," will enter the game with a fine 4-1-1 record. Their only loss was' a 7-0 affair at the hands of Fair­ haven in; the Stadium' mud a' couple of weeks ago," Des'pite the reversal, the High School' offense jelled in that game and the boys continued 'their over";' whelrriing ground superiority agairistAttleboro on'Saturday," winning 20-18. The running 6f Duncan MacDonald and Tom Eck. Jr. has .spiced the Crimson attack,' and these two boys, along with quarterback Ernie Torres; are expected to bear the offen­ sive brunt against 'their cross­ town rivals. This should prove to be a real thriller.

Cardin(t1j~ Sfr[l"otch,Asserts" No One Ever F~U1a~h~~ Cathechism Study EAST ST. LOUIS (NC)-The CardinaJ-Archbishop of Chicago stressed her,e that no Catholic ever finishes his catechism les­ sons, be he bishop, prie'st, Reli­ gious or layman, ' Speaking to a regional Con­ fraternity of Chrisian Doctrine congress, .Samuel Cardinal Stritch urged adult CCD cate­ chism courses, spoke on the rela­ t"ionship of liturgy and cate­ chism, and cautioned that indi­ rect teaching of religion through good family atmosphere is not a substitute for direct teaching. Sad Thing "I have come across people who somehow feel that· when they .finish the Baltimore cate­ chism that they, used in grade school, they have finished the study of catechism and they know all about their religion," the Cardinal said.

Calling this "a sad thing," he said Catholics must keep work­ ing to increase their knowledge of religion, "particularly in these days when .we 'can o~ly ,with difficulty live what we believe." , "Because this is so, it would be a sorry mistake to exclude adult catechism instructiop's from the whole work of catecB'ism instruc­ tion in the Confraternity of Christian Doctrine," he commented. . Turning to the catechism­ liturgy relationship, the Cardinal said that the meaning of the form and content of the Church's pub­ lic prayers' cannot be known "unless more and more we come to know our catechism." The catechetical work of the Church in its early ages, he con­ tinued, anticipated the life of the liturgy of the Church. "It would be a mistake to identify the lit­ urgy w'ith the catechism of the Church, although, certainly in the liturgY.Jhere is doctrine of· ~eds. the Church," he said. .. Turning to private devotions, With~n the Cardinal declared that "as WASHINGTON (NC )-Auxil­ there is in the liturgy that first iary Bishop Fulton J.
