Continue War on Poverty .....

WASHINGTON (NC) - The 'Campaign for Human Development, the Church's drive to strike at the root causes of poverty in America, is getting a boost from television programs, magazine articles and fund drives across the nation. CBS television scheduled Ii two-part series on its religious '~LookUp and Live" broadcasts, dealing with topics. of self-help, hunger, and r~cism as they relate to poverty. The Campaign for Human Development will take up its 1971 collection Sunday, Nov. 21. Be.gun last year,' the 1970 cam-

paign has funded over 160 projects. It is sponsored by the National Conference of Catholic Bishops. Organizations funded by the campaign must be established and controlled by the poor themselves in their efforts to break out of the circle of poverty. Elsewhere, in a move to express their support for the 1971 campaign, . members of ~he' Priests' Forum of the Joliet, Ill., diocese voted unanimously to give 10. per cent of their funds to the campaign, a donatioll of $150. The donation pledge came

Bishop Tells .Of Campaign Proposals

In

plementation of the assembly's resolution will be carried out at local levels by 40 elected delegates. In New York, the campaign's national director, Auxiliary Bish· . op Michael R. Dempsey of Chicago, announced that the 1970 campaign . has established 23 . more self-help grants totaling ~ver a half million' dollars. The majority of grants were made to organizations in the Southwest and on the West Coast. The programs vary from a mobile unit for health information to special tutoring courses for disadvantaged students.

u.s.

The 23 grants bring the 1970 campaign total to'188 grants for a total expenditure of over four million dollars. Another $2.1 million has been alloted to diocesan self-help programs. Bishop Dempsey also praised those priests "who made great personal sacrifices and contributed .large personal checks" to the 1970 campaign. In a special statement made' in Priests-USA, the newspaper of the National . Federation of Priests' Councils, Bishop Demp~ sey said that much of the campaign's success was due to priests' love "for the poor."

Advises Chicanos Enter .Politics SAN DIEGO (NC)-MexicanAmericans who can should enter politics and work to improve conditions for all citizens, Bishop Leo T. Maher told a gathering of Chicanos here in California. The San Diego bishop said Chicanos should "combat injustice, tyranny and intolerance, dedicating themselves to the service of all with sincerity and fairness, better still, with charity and fortitude demanded by public life." Bishop Maher spoke at a Mass opening the diocese's pilot project to develop lay leaders and community organizers in predominantly Mexican-American parishes here. He said the diocese was sponsoring the program to help the Chicanos help themselves and so they can retain their ethnic identity. "This involves primarily the sharing of your rich cultural heritage," the bishop said, ··..but it likewise involves greater opportunities in education, in developing the person, as well as an economic and social balance and political life." The pilot program was launched after it received a $20.000 grant from the U. S. bishops' anti-poverty Campaign for Human Development. Father John Hurtado, a Chicano priest and diocese's ethnic affairs director, heads the project.

Bishop's Letter Continued fro.m Page One Next weekend, a special collection will be taken up in all the parishes of tile Diocese of F~ll River.. It is entirely appropriate that this Camp'aign coincide·with the Thanksgiving Holiday season, when those of us Who are blessed by Almighty God with an abundance of the material goods of this world should be minded to share some of this abundance with those less fortunate. I urge you to be as generous as possible. One quarter of the proceeds of the collection will be channeled to self-help projects within "_ the Diocese. Your generosity a year ago helped to finance educational programs in distressed areas of our cities, drug programs, projects for assisting the immigrants, and many other worthy endeavors. The greater portion of the collection will be dispensed through the national office to worthy activities in other sections ~f the country, particularly in the South. Reminding you of the great love which Our Divine Savior exhibited for. the poor, and assuring you of God's blessing upon the generous of heart, I remain Devotedly yours in Christ,

"Take a fresh look at the question of when and how we communicate to the American Church and theAmerican nation." Balancing the four items of unfinished business, Cardinal "Dearden cited four "positive achievements .... of special significance" made by the bishops' conference in recent years: reorganization to deal with appropriate issues more effectively; closer relationships with other Catholic hierarchies, particularIy in the Western hemisphere; the adoption of conciliation and arbitration procedures within the Church; "deep concern for human dignity and the cause of it:!stice" shown by the Campaign for Human Development.' Past Years "The past five years have not been ordinary ones," Cardinal Dearden said. It has been, in the Cburch, a period of change "ex-

Church, he observed, but he insisted that the crisis is one "of transition, of adaptation, of growth," one that holds "great hope for the future." Among the key problems facing the American Bishops, Cardinal Dearden gave epecial attention to "the tension in the relationship between bishops and priests that so often exists at the present time." Such tension, he said, "hamper all of us, priests and bishops, and draw off time and energy which could be better expended elsewhere." "No doubt mistakes have been made on both sides," he said. "But no doubt, too, this situation is at the bottom the result of changing circumstances in society' and the Church over which none of us can pretend to exercise total control. "The time· has come to heal any breach that may exist, to close any gap that may be present in the relationship of bishop and priests."

Continued from Page One the National Union of Associations 'of Parents of Students of Free (non-state) Education. Theme of the congress was "the Child's Right to Moral and Religious Training." "The child, the untried youths, have need of attentive and sure guides. They need precise and unshifting landmarks. Aware of their' duty', parents and educators furnish these in the very measure of tlleir love.' "This need makes itself felt today more than ever, in a pluralistic and often secularized world that is hesitant about its own· reasons for living." An education "worthy of the name," the letter said, must help youths "establish a real hierarchy of values. It must help them acquire a veritable conception of life. "Now a Christian knows that truth is not invented, but is given in a revelation. Salvation is not achieved; it is received. It is received in faith in Him who is the way, the truth and the life. And this truth, far from putting reins on liberty, on the contrary brings it liberation."

Relief Agency Aids Cyclone Victims NEW YORK (NC) - Catholic Relief Services, the overseas aid agency of U.S. Catholics, has airlifted by charter jet 37 tons of supplies worth $245,000 to aid victims of a cyclone and tidal wave in India's Bay of Bengal ,_ area. Some of the supplies are to be used in the CRS relief program for East Pakistani refugees in India. Reports from the cyclone-struck area indicate that from 5,000 to 20,000 lives may have been lost in the storm. Some five million persons live in the stricken area and officials state that most of them were affected by the storm. CRS has provided over 65,000 tons of aid supplies valued at $8.7 million 'to the East Pakistani refugees. The CRS emergency program is providing the basic necessities of life on a regular basis to over one million refugees.

Bishops' Education Statement Continued from Page One by the United States. Supreme Court regarding aid to churchrelated schools. ' , As the sponsors of the largest number of such schools, we are intensely concerned with the crisis. We do not view our, Catholic schools as something historically interesting but presently irrelevant. We see them as vitally relevant and extremely important for today's society. It is the purpose of this statement, therefore, to assess where we are, what we must do and where we must go in planning for the immediate and long-range future of our Catholic schools. The Supreme Court Decisions The United States Supreme Court in its decisions of June 28 has ruled that programs which provide public aid to, churchrelated elementary and secondary schools according to the provisions of the Pennsylvania and Rhode Isiand statutes are unconstitutional. These decisions do not mean that any or all aid to such schools is unconstitutional. The Court specifically ruled upon the two forms of aid in question outlining the guidelines which must apply. In deciding these two cases, the Court cited "excessive entanglement" of the State with religion as the key factor for declaring the two statutes unconstitutional. In effect, the number of possible ways to assist church-related schoofs to continue in existence has been reduced. ne right of parents to choose for religious reasons' the school 'which thE'ir children will attend has been traditional among us a1\9, wC9t.,l;!!H:h~:llenged through m'wh~.o(. Qur: hi~ory. When·challenged, it· was clearly ~vindicated by the Supreme Court of the United States. . Justice McReynolds expressed this eloquently, in delivering a majority opinion on the Pierce Case in 1925 "... the fundamental theory of liberty upon which all governments in' this Union repose excluded any general power of the state t.o standardize its children by' forcing them 'to accept instruction 'from public teachers' 'only: 'The child :is not the mere, creature of the State; those who nurture 'him and direct his destiny have the right, coupled with the high duty, to recognize and 'prepare him for additional obligations." .This parental right is, taken for granted in the Gourt's ~ost recent decisions. , What is at stake here goes far beyond the question of dollars and cents. 'Although the operaton of our schools over the years has saved taxpayers billions' of dollars, public economy is -not the' key issue. It is mainly a question of parental rights and freedom. This issue might best be ,defined· in the words, of The Second' Vatican Council in its Declaration on Christian Education: "Parents who have the primary and ,inalienable right and duty to .,educate their children must enjoy true liberty in their choice of . schools. Consequently the government which has the obligation to. protect and "defend the rights of citizens m~' §e'e to it, in its conC;ern for 'distributive justice, ttJ,t-,public assistance is given ,~!,',,~.l\:way that :parents are truo/.';fFee .to cboose accordins to', .their conscience the .; .... I

schools they want for their children." But a right which cannot be exercised with a reasonable degree of freedom is in effect a right denied. We are graveiy concerned about this question because we see the parental freedom of choice in education rapidly going beyond the reach of all but the affluent. The issue of governmental assistance to church-related schools is far from settled; differences of opinion still abound. As Christians we are committed to settle disputes on the basis of fraternal love-and this spirit must always be our guide. As Americans, we hold that there should be unity-but this does not'mean uniformity. Along with millions of others, we firmly believe that nonpublic schools and particularly churchrelated schools have contributed immensely to our nation's educational system precisely because they add a dimension of choice, diversity and healthy openness in education: The task ahead is to determine what other programs and forms of aid are possible besides auxiliary services, such as buses, textbooks, school lunches and public health services. We must . use every available and responsible avenue to pursue what. we strongly feel to be a matter of plain justice - governmental aid for children attending church-' related schools. Now is the time for dispassionate discussion, careful .evaluation and creative proposals. Almost every other Western democracy has' been able to find a rational and workable solution to this 'delicate and, important issue.. Can· we not do the 'same? Ail cit.ii~ns ,- coric~~ea· With protecting the right of parents to freedom of choice in education must become interested and involved. We call' upon our 'fellow Americans not only to acknowledge this right but to provide ways which will eD'able parents to exercise this, right. At the beginning the 1970~ 1971 school ' year, for example, . ,4,367,322 elementaryan'd secondary students attended 11,351 Catholic schools throughout the United States. Close to a half million children attended other schools under religous auspices. The, rights of- so many students· canno~ be taken lightly. The Catholic School 'Crisis

of

Without any exaggeration, Catholic SChools ip the -United States ,are now ,confronting 'a' crisis situation. The crisis is largely, though not exclusively, a problem of economics and the . reasons for this are many. The costs of American: education generally have skyrocketed in recent years, due, to inflation, parental and public demand .for quality . education, increased teacher salaries, and other factors.. In· addition, Catholic schools in recent years have experenced a rapid decrease of religious teachers with a corresponding increase of lay teachers. In the seven dioceses of this province religious teachers have , declined from 7,192 to 5,951 (17 per cent) and lay teachers have Jncreased from 2,155 to 3,016 (39.9 per cent) just within the iast three years. The result of this change is that many schools have closed down and others are on the verge of doins the same.

/ . Contemporary Man Seen Developing Renewed Interest in Religion "

MARYKNOLL (NC)-Contemporary man has a renewed interest in religion because he wants a deeper and more meaningful understanding of himself and his ~xistence, a theologian from India said here. "I would say religion is becoming more 'relevant,~' especial" ly among the younger generation, said Dr. John B. Chethimattam, who teaches at both Fordham University in New York and Dharmaram College in Bangalore, India.

SERRAN: Rev. John J. Smith, Delegate of the Bishop for Seminarians and Diocesan Director of Vocations, has been named by Bishop Cronin as chaplain of the New Bedford Serra Club succeeding Rev. John F. Hogan, who has served in that capacity since the founding of the New Bedford club in

He said in an interview at the Catholic Foreign Mission Society of America' headquarters that modern man has become "dis· illusioned with all the havoc done by science and dissatisfied with philosophy which has be-' come mere linguistic analysis."

1957.

The search for deeper meaning, Dr. Chethimattam said, explains the recent upsurge in in· terest in Eastern philosophy aM theology. Eastern philosophers, he said, "are not dealing with mere mythology or ritual, they are dealing with the actual, liv· ing problems of man.

Asked if he thought a series on India.n thought would have relevance in modern America, Dr. Chethimattam replied: "Definitely. America is trying to achieve in the course of a few years what India achieved in 2,000 years. The-whole history of India-the encounter of races and nations and philosophies - is being repeated in America today. "So it is our feeling," Dr. Chethimattam added," that if the We!ltern (philosopliical) approach of wonder and the emphasis on being and the Eastern approach of consciousness and experience were brought toget.her in a useful encounter, contemporary man can better evaluate his experience."

The theologian added that man is "looking for a different understanding of his own life, his own experience."

Taiwan Remains Member of UN SpeciaI Agencies UNITED NATIONS (NC) Taiwan has been expelled from the United Nations, but is still a member of the specialized agencies affiliated with the UN and is likely to stay a member despite Red China's opposition. In a message from communist China's acting Minister of Foreign Affairs Chi Peng-fei to UN Secretary General U Thant, Peking said the General Assembly vote ousting Taiwan-also reo quires the various agencies to expel Taiwan. The wcrding of the resolution introduced by Albania and 16 other states and adopted by the General Assembly specified that "the representatives of Chiang Kai-shek be expelled forthwith from the UN and all the organizations affiliated with it." Determined to 'Continue In its quarter century of participation in the UN, Taiwan became a member of all the specialized agencies, except the Food and Agriculture Organization. These include the World Bank, International Monetary Fund, World Health Organization, International Atomic Energy Agency, UN Children's Fund, International Labor Organization and others. . The agencies are a valuable source of technical and financial assistance to any member nation, and' Taiwan's spokesmen have already indicated their de'termination to continue membership. The agencies are autonomous, with their own executive boards and budgets, and their own policies, although they are associated with the UN and report an" nually to the Assembly. A 1962 agreement to "take no note of" Assembly votes, is their only commitment to accept such decisions are binding on them. It is unlikely that all UN member countries participating in the agencies will sl:1are Peking's view that the Assembly vote requires the expulsion of Taiwan from all agencies. Other Non-Members Another detJrrent to the across-the-board! expulsion of Taiwan is the membership in a number of the agencies of states that are not members of the UN, such as West Germany, which has been a generous contributor to the work of several of the affiliates. Some agencies financing I aid projects in both UN member countries and non-member countries can be expected' to retain Taiwan as a member. Among these are the UN Children's Fund (UNICEF), which has a $500,000 health services, family planning and education program on Taiwan, and the UN Development Program, which has pro·· vi~ed $1~.3 million t?ward industrial projects on Taiwan. . F.urthermore, the weighted votmg system of the World Bank suggests that the support of the United· States and Japan would be able to prevent Taiwan's ouster.

support for Jewish day schools in the United States. The unprecedented unity statement, issued by the Synagogue Council of America, was {;alled "a development of historical sig· nificance" by Rabbi Irving Lehr· man of Miami Beach. He is pres. .ident of the council which is the coordinating agency for national Jewish organizations. In the past, the Reform, Conservative and Orthodox branches of Judaism have differed sharply in their ilssessment of the day school movement, but now they have agreed that "few causes have contributed so largely and significantly as the Jewish day' school to the survival of the Jews as a distinctive religio· cultural entity in the challenging circumstances of American freedom." The statement calls on the Jewish community and particularly on Jewish federations aM welfare funds to increase sub· stantially their support of day schools. Despite increased allocations for some communities' schools, they added, federation and welfare support for Jewish day schools .remains by and large woefully inadequate,"

Puerto, Rico Women Aided' by Campaign BOSTON (NC - The fO~f' story row house at 10 Pembroke Street in Boston's South End looks no different from the dozens of others on the block. It is old and rundown and the tiny backyard is filled with trash, but when eight young women moved in, neighbors began to sense that something was changing. The women, as the neighbors soon learned, are three nuns and five Catholic, lay women who have come to blend into the neighborhood, to find out the needs of the Puerto Rico women, and work with them to meet these needs. Their project is being supported by a $7,000 grant from ,the bishops' 1970 Human Development campaign. A second an· nual (:ollection is planned for Nov. ~:1, 1971.

Church Has 'Task Of Motivating For Justice HARTFORD (NC) The Church's task. in the area' of world peace and justice is to educate governments and people, to inspire arid motivate them, said Arc;hbishop John F. Whealon of',Hartford,' "The Church's task would seem to be more in this direction than in dispensing material aid, though of course we must do that," he told the Catholic Transcript, archdiocesan newspaper. The archbishop was interviewed here after his return from Rome as an alternate member of the U.S. synod delegation. "The Church is not wealthv." Archbishop Whealon said. "And ,while Catholics' of the archdiocese re~ponded most ~enerously to the Campaign for Human Development last year, I think probably the biggest benefit of the campaign was the motivating of our people to understand the pli~ht of the poor and to sympathize with them and try to hp,1" the",. It was a sort of education of the heart." The archbishop said'he thought one of the most· important effects of the synod would be to renew the Church's determination to persuade governments to cut arms spending and turn their efforts to helping the world's poor. Noting that much has been said about the "identity crisis" of priests, Archbishop Whealon said the synod document on the priesthood "should tell us pretty clearly what the priest is to be and what he. is to do in the modern world." He said he expected the document to dispei some of the "negativism" and contention that has surrounded the priesthood in the recent past' and "enable us to roll up our sleeves and get on with ~he work of spreading the king(\om of God and forming the people In Christ.:' \ • ,1,1.',:. \

Diocesan Human Developm ent Campaign Aids Wareham Drug Committee Among agencies that have received grants from the Diocesan Human Development Campaign, working in cooperation with the U. S. Catholic Bishops' antipoverty program. is the Ware- . , ham Drug Committee. Selectmen of the Cape' Cod community formed th~ committee two years ago to educate citizens regarding the problem of drug abuse and to assist involved youngsters. Rev. Leonard M. Mullaney, priest-in-charge of St. Rita's Church, Marion, representing the 'Cathoiic .Church on the commit'tee, notes that "since its inception the organization has done 'everything· 'possible to inform. parents about drug abuse." ,The program has taken two forms, he said. Ma~y meetings have been held imd educational literature has been mailed to the homes ot all, Wareham parents. Last year the committee sponsored a series of seminars for parents at which speakers included a clergyman, a state police detective, directors of a drop-in center and the father of a former addict. This season meeting,> will take the form of small group gatherings to be held in various areas of Wareham for greater convenience of ~hose attending. Drop-In Center During the past Summer the committee sponsored a drop-in center in Onset,. open every evening and equipped to aid youths with a wide range of problems in addition to drug-related situations. For next Summer members are considering the use of a van which would visit beaches and parks. in order to distribute literature and offer youth the services of trained counselors. "We have' more of a drug problem in the Summer, when we experience an influx of seasonal residents," noted Father "

Mullaney. But he added that he felt the Cape situation was not so serious as that in many large cities. Since Spring the committee has sponsored a "Help" line, ,in service' s'evera'l nights a week at this' time and every evening during the Summer., By dialing a widely advertised, number, a teenager can speak to a trained volunteer who can give on-thespot c;ounseling or arrange for more extensive assistance where needed. And in recent weeks Drug Committee members' have been active in transporting teenagers to. Marathon House in Attleboro, where Saturday night.sessions are held at which ex-drug addicts speak on their experiences. "This gives Wareham area teenagers' a chance to speak on an informal basis with people. close to their own age who have used drugs and decided to try to break the habit," declared Father Mullaney. "Members' of the, committee,

including housewives, professional people, clergymen and high school students, are not naive enough to think that they know all there is to know about drug abuse, nor: .do they think they can solve all the problems that drug abuse causes. But they do their best," he concluded, "hoping that sorite parents will be better informed and some youngsters helped and grateful to the Human Development Campaign for the. assistance it has given them."

Scolres Church's ~Male

Approach'

GENEVA (NC)-Liturgicai and ecumenical movements "are somewhat bogged down because the Church's approach has been typically male," the head of the National Council of Catholic. Women said, here. Margaret Mealey, council executive director, told an international ecumenical women's group the "male" approach means making decisions through committees and "abstract theologizing." "The Church is not aware of the particular talents women have for what is most necessary today - creating community," Miss Mealey' said. Liturgy and ecumenism are both "basically communal, familial social events," she said. "Women should and need to be in the forefront." Speaking· at a recent meeting of the Womep's Ecumenical Liaison GrQup-a multi-faith organization first initiated in 1967 by the World Council of Churches and the Vatican Secretariat for Promoting Christian Unity-the council, director also described discrimination against American Women in education, government and industry. She noted some colleges limit the number of women students "or even' place entrance require. ments ata higher level than for men."

'Rosary Priest' Plans Campaign For Prayer LONDON (NC) - Father Patrick Peyton, the famed "Rosary Priest," said here that he is planning another 10-year campaign to save what he calls "AmeriCa's disintegrating families." "Psychologists and psychiatrists say it is because of 'inability to communicate' and the 'generation gap,' but in plain English the reason for this disintegration is spiritual bankruptcy," he said. "God has been shut out." The American Holy Cross priest said he is convinced that the enthusiasm of the 50's and 60's that took him around the world collecting millions of Ros-, ary pledges still exists in the 70's. Father Peyton stopped here for two days after talking with American and other bishops at the synod. He then flew on to Mexico. "A prayer campaign is what people are looking for," he said. FamUy Rosary The priest, gray-haired but still full of energy at 62, spoke with all the old fire that 19 years ago packed London's giant Wembley Stadium, drew another 100,000 to hear' him in Hyde Park, and attracted similar crowds of non-Catholics as well as Catholics throughout this country. His catch phrase, "the family that prays together stays 'together," is still remembered and often quoted. He recalled that next Jan. 30, wherihe"plans to start( his"new ' Rosary campaign is the 30th anniversary of the day when as a young priest he resolved to spend his whole life working for the restoration of the pra~tice of the Family Rosary.

Fall River Native' Named Fi'rst Archivist', Of Dioc~se,QjProvidence- -, The Diocese of Providence has opened an Office of Diocesan Archives and has appointed Joseph A. Cichon, Jr., a Fall River native, now a resident of West Warwick, as diocesan archivist. The archives will, serve a dual function. First, they will provide a central records management system to assist the diocese, its offices, agencies and parishes in daily' administrative functions. Now nearly 100 years old, the diocese did not have a central records bank until formation of this office. The project is of particUlar interest in Fall River, which formed part of the Providence diocese until it was established as a separate see in 1904. Secondly, the archives will collect and maintain historical data for the study of church history and immigration in the Southern New England area. At the present time, several histories of the diocese are being prepared for its 1972 centennial year. The office will provide a research center for historians and students interested in studyi~g history of the church.

Gets, New Name LAFAYETTE (N C)' - The Southwesl Louisiana Register, Lafayette diocesan newspaper, will be renamed The Morning Star in January, 1972, when the paper's printing operations are moved to a plant within the diocese. Msgr. Richard Mouton, the paper's editor, said rising costs in postage and printing made the rn~v~ ,neCe,s~ary." He _ad4~d .th;it the paper has 'never been: printed' within its own diocese before.

At the present time, the office is conducting a records search in Diocesan agencies, offices and parishes and hopes to relieve these units from the necessity of maintaining their own records. It is asking pastors, for example, to forward old records to its office for' deposit. Mr. Cichon expects to visit all parishes and diocesan units within the next 12 months as part of his search efforts, which will eventually encompass all clubs, committees and organizations at both the parish and diocesan levels.

One of the most fascinating developments' in the youth cuI· ture is the growing, abandonment ,of )iberal sex. drugs. and violence'in favor of a fresh concern for the person and teachings of Jesus. Although "Jesus people" may not have much time for organized religion, they are nonetheless inclined to accept some of its more basic premises.

They are not satisfied, for example, with an overly humanized Christ like that of the "secular city", enthusiasts and the "death of God" theologians. They want an aWf;lsome. transcendent Jesus -the 'God-Man of traditional Christianity. .In turning to Jesus, these youthful cultists recognize him as one who makes certain moral demands on his followers. There is much in his teachings to commend him to their taste.

Ab~ut six years ago, Father William J. Collins, C.S.S.~ suffered a breakdown and had to enter a mental institution, where he was confined for some 20 months. !:Ie gives a candid and e~austive account of this eXperience in his book Out of the Depths to a process of forgiveness (Doubleday, 277 Park Ave., going both of self and of others, is also New York, N.Y. 1001? $5.- more lengthily set out in the 95), which has an introduc- book.

By

RY. REV. MSGR. JOHN S. KENNEDY

It is generous of Father Collins to have written this account of the suffering and the release which were his. He intends it not simply as autobiography, but also and especially as a help to others, Father Collins' frank acknowledgement of his own trouble and his proof of the possibility of a cure should encourage others to take cognizance of disorders in their own case and use the necessary means for their correction. To advise the mentally ill that they should just forget their trouble is patently wrong. But quite as harmful can be the counsel that prayer will set them right,

2) The principles of effective communication. True enough, I can listen with my ears to the reader and follow with my eyes the printed word. But I cannot watch the celebrant or lector and read the published text. Some insist, nevertheless, that this combination of hearing and reading forms the ideal communication " process. It involves, they midntain, two senses and hence the message makes a double impact upon us. Hut that line of reasoning ignores a critical point. The celebrant or lector communicates with his or her total being, not just by the tongue and lips. Eyes talk, the face says somethitig, gestures, add meaning.

close contact wth his constituency, and to be accountable to it, effectively ,to represent the mind of his constituency to the Senate and to keep his constitu'ency informed of the ,activities of the Senat~." Now, Mr. Jefferson, ,what do you think of that? Well, there are a number of thoughts that might occur to you in rapid succession: 1. Your colleague Madison no longer writes the ~lear, effective, resonant English he used to write. 2. He has become compulsively' concerned about the possibility that a senator miglit take an extra breath without clearing it with his constituents. In five different phrases he ,says exactly the same thing: a senator is responsible to his constituency. and ' he better 'not forget it. ' Indirect Plebiscite 3. He. has not mentioned a single thing about insight, knowledge, wisdom, or vision. A senator is not to be a wise man, or a leader, or a visionary. He is to be a technician who runs, 'back' and forth to his voters before he utters a single word or casts a single dubious vote. . 4. It also occurs to you that no legislature so constituted can possibly govern. All it will ,be is a clearing' house for mass democracy. There will' not' be a periodic plebiscite in which it is determined whether a senator will . coqtinue to represent his district.' Rather, every single issue will, be subject to indirect plebiscite. ,Why, you wonder, bother with a senate? ' 5. You finally conclude that poor old James doesn't think there is enough trust in 'this, new country to try anything else but indirect plebiscite. Too bad that he doesn't believe in the possibility of pa~liamentary democracy. Basic Concern . The quote, of cour~e, is not from James Madison but from the constitution of a certain diocesan senate and emphasizes the melancholy prospects for the emergence of democratic forms in the Catholic Church. The men who put together the constitution of which the above . article is a central point had never read the Federalist Papers,

, it takes to make ;representative democracy work. With the' oldest 'and' richest tradition ,of democratic: government in: the world available' to ,them, they' created a g6vernmental form as though that tradition had never existed. Their basic concern was not that wise; talEmted, visionary men be 'elected 'to office; their main fear wa's rather that no one could possibly accuse any senator of doing a single thing that had not been ratified by the men who elected him. If the framers of that constitution were aware of ,the age' , old democratic dilemma of fidel- ' ity to one's voters versus-integrity to one's ,principles ' and , vision, they certainly didn't show, it. No "profiles in courage" ,needed in this senate - ~mly minds representative of the .constituency. ~'

Cpn~inued from Page SIXteen mon, the "law" jesus propounds is a law ultimately of b~ing like himself, to the extent of being ready to lose all' our limbs (5,29f.), our property (~,40.42), our rights (5,38f.41),' our reputations (5,10.12) for, him and for our fellow man' and for peace in the world, just as he: actually gave himself up to be unjustly condemned, 'stripped, nailed to a cross for us. Thus the meaning of "th~ law of Christ", is clear. The law of Christ is "the law of the cross." It is living in the faith that the evils of this world can be transformed" by men who are willing to face in faith the worst that the world din do. Those who live that way can, like Jesus, transform those evils into good by the power of their selfsacrificing love. Such men in • faith can rise from the dead. Life's Pattern The law of Christ is the law of the apparent contradictions: that to die is to live, to give is to gain, take the privation and sufferings of others on yourself in love instead of imposing your own on others and you will find happiness-for yourself and for them. This is carrying out in life what we believe in the gospel and say we believe in the creed; that Christ suffered and died and rose from the dead, and this is our salvation. The law of· Christ is Christ himself as the pattern for our lives. "The attitude you should have is the one Christ Jesus h~d, - ..." (Philippians 2,5); "He ",ho says that he always lives in God, should live just as Jesus Christ , did (I John 2,6); for "Christ himself suffered for you and left you an example so that you 'WOUld follow in his steps" (I Peter 2,21).

Says .Big L~gal Firms Aid Poor

IN THE DIOCESE By PETER 1.' BARTEK Norton Hl,h Coach .........

First Cape~ay. League Title Within Grasp .for .F~irhaven Fairhaven High has never won a Capeway Conference football championship. However, the Blue Devils find them,selves in position to corral that elusive' crown in this the final year of 'Conf~rence competition.- All the Kevin Cadieux coached Devils have 'to do is beat or tie rival $aturda~ iast,. when it was deDartmouth' on Thanksgiving , feated' by' Bourne 13-12. However, Coach Carlin Lynch's Indimorning.',But" this has been ans can never be taken lightly. Ii season of st}mning upsets, not only in', Cap~way Conf~rence play; but throughout the dIOcese. 'Lawrence High of Falmouth 'entered last Saturday's game against Fairhaven as the only unbeaten combine in the diocese. The heavily favored Clippers fell victim to an inspired Fairhaven eleven and were edged 6-0. The victory, fought for and deserved, leaves Fairhaven as the only unbeaten club in Capeway, play. Fairhaven will enter, the, holiday clash with a 6-2 over-all ' record. Both losses came at the hands of non-league opponents Bishop Feehan ,High of Attleboro and Somerset.' Dartmouth was mathematically eliminated from the title picture

Although Fairpaven has prognosticators proven' the wrong and taken the limelight ~way from· pre-season favorites Falmouth and Barnstable, Coach Cadieux will have to have his charges in top form to insure that that first Capeway 'ConferencefootbalL championship will not have to be shared. Likewise, Coach Don Ruggeri's Falmouth Clippers will not be given the luxury of sitting home hoping that Dartmouth upend Fairhaven so that they, at least, will reap a portion of the title. For while the battle is being staged in Dartmouth, Falmouth will have a fight of its own against visiting Barnstable.

County Champ Attleboro Set for North Falmouth must win its Thanksgiving game and Fairhaven lose in order that a tie result. Barnstable defeated Taunton 26-6 i~ last Saturday's nonleague contest. The Red Raiders would like nothing more than to eliminate their arch-rivals from the title race they themselves cannot win. Bourne will attempt to keep its winning streak alive Turkey Day when it meets Wareham. The Canalmen's'win over Dartmouth should give them added momentu'm if any is needed for a Thanksgiving game. Old Rochester of Mattapoisett trounced Wareham last Saturday 27-14. ' Dennis-Yarmouth, the only Capeway Conference team not scheduled to play, a league game on the holiday, will host' Old Rochester. . The Bristol County League , race is over thanks to Attleboro and Bishop Feehan. Attleboro needed a victory last Saturday to insure itself of

at least a tie of the County title. The. Bombardiers who have been up-and-down lately proved they could come up with the big effort w?en it .wa,s e~sentia1. Coach JIm CaSSIdy s bIg Blue tu.rned b~ck a. stubborn Durfee HIgh of Fall RIver last weekend 12-6 to finish its County campaign with a 6-1 record. Meanwhile, acros~ tow~, New Bedford wh~ was tle~ WIth Attlebo~o for fIrst plac~ In the loop standIngs was stagIng, a come from b~hind. battle. aga,inst Feehan to stay In the tItle race. But, the Whalers could not come all the way back and had tQ settle for a '14-14 tie. Second place 'New Bedford is 4-1:1 in the circuit. Attleboro is home-Bristol County champions. Since Attleboro plays North Attleboro, a non-league opponent on Thanksgiving there is no way for the Joe Bettencourt coached Wh'alers to finish any better than second. New Bedford will entertain Durfee on the holiday.

One game is scheduled to be played in the diocese this Saturday. That is the annual meeting between rival diocesan schools Bishop Stang and Bishop Feehan. Like all Thanksgiving games this traditional battle should prove to be an interesting affair. Feehan has to be rated the favorite; but, especially this year, that doesn't mean much.
