nounced today by Most Rev. James L. Connolly, Bishop of Fall River, who also appointed a new parish, administrator. The North Dartmouth parish will be known as St. Julie Billiart in honor of the foundress of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur who teach at Bishop Stang High· School. St. Julie's parish church is planned in the immediate vicinity of Stang High which will be used for services until a church is constructed. St. Julie was canonized this year.

Rev. John F. Hogan, present administrator at St. John the Evangelist Church in Central Village, has been appointed by the diocesan Ordinary to head the North Dartmouth parish. Rev. Edward C. Duffy, assistant all St. James' Church ;n New Bedford, will succeed Father Hogan as administrator at the Westport parish. Father Hogan Son of Mary (McMahon) Hogan and the late John Hogan, Father Hogan was born in FAil River on Aug. 29, 1918. He attended the Davenport elementary, BMC Durfee High School in Fall River and Coyle High

Eyes of those conce'rned about the survival of the Catholic school system of the Diocese are on the State House these days as legislators are catching the urgency of the Catholic school crisis. For several years, educators and administrators of the Catholic school system have city of Fall River by $46.20, in New Bedford by $25.50, in Taunbeen talking of the plight of ton by $39.70, in Swansea by their schools but it is only $34.60, in Westport by $29.60.

Compose WASHINGTON (NC) U. S. Catholics who attend church on Thanksgiving Day this year will hear, for the first time, a Mass constructed by liturgists especially for this national civil holiday. The National Conference of Catholic Bisnops has approved the new Mass for Thanksgiving Day for use in the more than 150 dioceses in the United States. The themes of thanksgiving to God for His blessings on our land as "a place of promise and hope," as well as an appreciation or our responsibility to our fellowman, are expressed prayers,' suggested, through hymns and a choice of readings from the Old and New Testaments. Through the ages, the Church has not hesitated to adapt existing festive days to liturgical needs. The Second Vatican Council's Constitution on the Liturgy tells how "the Church studies with sympathy and preserves intact" elements of a people's way of life in the liturgy, "so long as they harmonize

And there would be less money for other needs in communities because of the education needs. Already many area legislators have made known their support of any reasonable legislation, including some form of financial help, to insure the survival of the Catholic schools. Rev. Patrick J. O'Neill, Ed. D., Superintendent of Schools of the Fall River Diocese, has indicated that interested persons should let their State representatives and senators know by letter that they favor action immediately to assist the Catholic school system in this very real and present crisis.

Special with its spirit."

State Senate President Maurice A. Donahue has asked a study committee working on the problem to come up with a short-term report, hopefully by' January, while it continues an in-depth study which may take as long as two years. By then, it is feared, time will have run out for the Catholic schools. The burden that their failing will place on cities and towns of the area would see the tax rate skyrocketing - in the case of the

non-Christian feasts with Christian fulfillment by instituting its own liturgical festivals, Christmas, for example, replaced the Roman Winter solstice festival. The texts of the Mass, besides expressing thanksgiving, are also appropriate to the liturgical action they accompany. The entrance song· is a psalm of entrance into the thanksgiving sacrifice. The prayer recal:s the Protestant notion of America populated by a covenanted soci_ ety. In accord with the new Ordinary of the Mass, provision is made for three Scriptural reading~-13 selections, six from the Old Testament; four from the epistles of St. Paul; three from the Gospels - suitable to the theme of thanksgiving are given in the text. Variants are proposed for both offertory and communion songs. The postcommunion recalls our appreciation for God's goodness and our responsibility to our fellowman. Gifts of clothing and food for the poor, as suggested in the re-

vised Order' of the Mass, may suitably be brought to the church at this Thanksgiving Mass and carried to the altar in the offertory procession. This gesture will serve as a reminder to the faithful of our obligation to share tile goods of our stewardship. The text for. the Mass supplies antiphons and psalms for the entrance, offertory and commun· ion songs, but,iny appropriate hymn, psalm or other sacred song may be sung at these times. Moreover, the texts of the Simple Mass Gradual and of other psalm collections may be employed with the Thanksgiving Mass, This provides considerable flexibility in -the choice of additional antiphons and psalms, as long as they correspond to the spirit of this Mass.

THE ANCHOR-Diocese of Fall River-Thurs. Nov. 20. 1969


Bishops Examine Current Church Phases A number of decisions concerning liturgical changes as well as administrative procedures have been approved by the National Conference of Catholic Bishops at their just-concluded

semi-annual meeting in Washington. Condensations of lengthy stories by the NC News Service, concerning the accomplishments of the Bishops' meeting, are published below on this page.

Birth Control Programs Declaring that "no price can be set on human life, "the Bishops have issued a protest against the "continuing and ever-expanding role both at home and abroad of the government in the matter of population control through the limitation of births." "We hope that our fellow Americans will appreciate the soundness of our stand," the Bishops said in their statement. Objectionable Elements The Bishops recalled they had warned in 1966 that programs of birth control related to public welfare ran a serious risk of being coercive. "Today that element of coercion is being openly advocated by some of the leading exponents of population control," they stated. Noting that projected research programs sponsored by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development include the search for effective methods of inducing abortion, the American Bishops charged that "in effect, the government is supporting birth control by early abortion." "Besides," they continued, "some private organizations that receive government funding are considering seriously means of population limitation that .go .b~­ yond family planning; these will involve coercion and abortion as well as other objectionable elements." Parental Judgment The Bishops reaffirmed a previous statement defending a legi-

timate role for governmentsponsored scientific research in· to the preservation of life. They cited as an example the development of a vaccine to prevent German measles. which is a threat to unborn children. But, "we continue to believe that the proper answer to population problems is development -development of natural resources and of technological means, and devolpment also of human beings themselves," the Bishops said. "Given educational opportunity and the economic means that go with it, we believe. couples will make judgments about family size that will be in harmony with the common good. We affirm that parents themselves, and no government official, should make that judgment." Rights of Unborn The Bishops said the common welfare requires government not only to avoid, but also to forbid and prevent, methods of population limitation that attack human life from conception onward. "The equal protection of the laws, guaranteed by the Fourteenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution to all persons, should not be withheld from the unborn," they said. "Anglo-American law has recognized the rights of the unborn." "Certainly no one should be deprived of life merely because it is more convenient for some that he should die," the Bishops declared.

:Crusade Against Poverty A National Catholic Crusade Against Poverty to raise $50 million over the next several YE~ars was announced by the Conference of Bishops. A feature of the program would be an annual Poverty Sunday collection to aid the needy and poor in ghettoes of this country. It would be administered by an executive whose membership would include members of minority groups. The Crusade was formally approved after a presentation by Bishop Francis J. Mugavero of Brooklyn who told the prelates there existed a widespread need for the education of Catholics on the massive problems of poverty. Bishop Mugavero was named chairman of the program. The need for a new Catholic attack on poverty questions surfaced over and over again in seven regional discussion groups into which the bishops divided themselves for half a day during the meeting. Their purpose was to find out why the 18-monthold Bishops' Task Force on Urban Problems appeared to have fallen short of expectations in many parts of the country. The proposed Crusade was one of the two major answers given by the bishops to the problem. A second related action was their unanimous approval of the establishment of an Office for Black Catholicism to serve as a spokesman for the needs of some 800,000 black Catholics.

The resolution implementing the crusade noted that in 1968 there were 22 million people certified as poor, by definition of the Social Security system. Sixty-six per cent of these poor people were white, it said, and 5Q per cent cif poor families lived in the South rural-oriented communities. The problems of the poor, both urban and rural. calls for the "creation of a new source of financial capital that can be allocated for specific projects aimed at eliminating the very cause of poverty." . Besides available Catholic re-

Urge Medicredit Health Insurance '.. .

WASHINGTON (NC) An American Medical Associat~on spokesman has urged the House Ways and Means Committee to consider adoption of its voluntary national health insurance plan, termed "medicredit." Msgr. Harrold Murray, director, department of health health affairs, U. S, Catholic Conference, said the departmental committee, has' taken no stand yet regarding any particular national health insurance plan. He and other committee members have been attending meetings in order to study the various proposals being discussed by other groups as well as the AMA. Speaking for AMA, Dr. Russell B. Roth of Erie, Pa" speaker of AMA's House of Delegates, said, their proposed plan would not affect the present medicare program for those 65 and older. Medicredit would- utilize a system of federal income tax' credits to those individuals and families who purchased qualified health coverage from approved private insurance companies or plans, In effect, Dr. Roth testified, a person's federal tax liability , would act as an index as to what . share of the cost of his health insurance premium would be borne by the federal government and how much would be paid by the individual. For those individuals and families who, in terms of their tax iiabilities, -are in the bottom 30 per cent ,of taxpayers, health insurance protection would be provided without cost to them.

Black Catholicism Office The Bishops voted to establish a National Office for Black Catholicism. The vote capped an 18-month effort by the Black Catholic Clergy Caucus, established in April 1968, to have the Church in the U.S. establish a central office which would be responsive to the needs of the American Negro communitv. That }lroposal,'a central office, was handed the bishops at their April, 1969, meeting in Houston. It received tentative approval, and both the committee and the Caucus were directed to come back with specifics. The bishops approved the specifics at this meeting-by a unanimous voice vote, and applause following the vote. Bishop Peter Gerety of Portland, Me., said the office would be sponsored by, but not part of the United States Catholic Conference. The USCC was authorized to advance .any funds necessary for organizational purposes - most importantly, the election of a board of directors.

Auxiliary Bishop Harold Perry of New Orleans said an operating budget would be provided "as ~:oon as possible." He added that he felt the office would also seek outside funding-from foundations and other sources-once it began operations. Develop Leadership Bishop Perry said he was "happy about the move." "Each ethnic group reaches a point when it must assume a role in decision-making and work toward self-determination," he said. The bishops on the committee said no directives were attached to the authorization of the office. Bishop Perry said he hopes the office will develop black leadership, encourage middle-class and rich blacks to invest in the poor blacks, and to encourage black artists to contribute to the liturgy. On the day they approved the Office for Black Catholicism the bishops devoted all thei~ working time to discussion of race and poverty.

Take Other' Actions The bishops approved a progress report by Cardinal Cooke recommending uniform financial accounting for dioceses and seeking estimates for development of a manual accounting procedures that could help bring this about. Commended the U.S. and other governments and international organizations for seeking humane treatment of prisoners of war, release of the names of captured personnel, exchange of the sick and wounded, impartial inspection of prisoner of war facilities, and regular communication with all prisoners of war. Approved a resolution originated by Patrick Cardinal 0'Boyle in the NCCB Administrative Boar'd decrying the expansion and extension of government and private funding of the production of birth control and abortion-producing devices. Set up an Ad Hoc Committee to continue study of the grape workers' strike in California. In a wire over the signature of John Cardinal Dearden, president of the NCCB., the bishops' Social Action Committee strongly rec-

ommended that the Table Grape Growers' Negotiating Committee seek to bring the dispute back to the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service. Charismatic Gifts Learned of the appointment of Lawrence Kane, former special assistant to the president of Brandeis University, as executive director of the Human Life Foundation, a semi-independent agency for rhythm' and fertility research. Heard a report by Bishop AI-· exander Zaleski, chairman ·of the NCCB Committee on Doctrine; note that the Penecostal Move: ment in the Catholic Church has a "legitimate theological basis". There are some claims by Catholic Pentecostals that they have received "certain charismatic gifts". While there have been "abuse" in this regard, Bishop Zaleski advised, "we still need further research on the matter of charismatic gifts." He noted that Vatican II presumed "that the Spirit is still active" in the Church.

Six Holy Days All six holy days of obligation in the United States will be retained in the United States by vote of the Bishops following the wish of the majority of the faithful as indicated by a national survey. It was noted that the obligation of January 1 should be retained, but the Bishops' Committee on the Liturgy has been directed to revise this holy day's

Envoy to Attend Anniversary Rites vATICAN CITY (NC) - Pope Paul VI has designated Maximilian Cardinal de Furstenberg, pre· feet of the Congregation for Eastern-rite Churches, as his special representative at the celebration marking the 10th anniversary of the Ukrainian Catholic archeparchy of Philadelphia on Dec. 7. A Mass in the cathedral of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, followed by a banquet, will highlight the one-day observance. John Cardi1la!

The psalm verses included as part of the chants between the readings are from the Confraternity of Christian Doctrine translation without prejudice to the· Grail version of the psalter from the Jerusalem Bible, all of ·which have been approved for lturgica,l use in the United States. Day of Thanksgiving English translations of the Bible, known as the Confraternity of Christian Doctrine, the Jerusalem Bible, and the Revised Standard Version (Catholic edition), may be used for the Scriptural readings. Where slight variations are needed at the beginning of a reading to show the context more clearly, these have been indicated. Recessional songs may be seelected. that are appropriate for this occasion, such as "Now Thank We All Our God" and "America." United States citizens have cherished Thanksgiving as a civil and religious festival since its institution by Gov. William Bradford of Plymouth Colony, in 1621. The custom spread throughout the British North American colonies. During the Revolutionary War, the Continental Congress adopted it and the states observed the day thereafter. President Abraham Lincoln designated it as a national holiday and in 1941, a joint resolution of Congress fixed the fourth Thursday of November as the nationa! day of Thanksgiving. Thanks to God Vatican Council II's Constitution on the Liturgy declared flexibility of worship "so that the traditional customs and disciplines of the sacred seasons can be preserved or restored to meet the conditions of modern times to be one of its chief aims. Thus, the traditional custom of expressing thanks to God for His many blessings on the American feast-day of Thanksgiving' will be observed by a particular Eucharistic liturgy, with a wide variety of appropriate Scriptural readings, celebrated in parishes across the nation! each year on the fourth Thursday of November.

Better Relief Identity Assessment of the year-old National Catholic Disaster Relief Committee after its experience with Hurricane Camille has reo suIted in six recommendations for improvement of service although there has been "a reasonably successful accomplishment" of its established purpose. Two of the six implementation measures propose the development of "an improved system of publicity and information service," as well as "posters, badges, and other informational materials bearing a title such as 'Catholic Disaster Relief Services' which will clearly identify the Church's services and personnel in the disaster area." Regarding increased press coverage, the report explains: "NC News Service will be asked to assist in implementing this ob-

jective. News personnel are needed on the spot immediate~y as disaster strikes and during the emergency period." Other measlires recommended are to "explore with Catholic Relief Services (the overseas and agency of U.S. Catholics) the possibility of utilization of its "experience," and to develop sets of guidelines "which more clearly spell out th!" committee's services and actions," as well as for 'potential local Catholic disaster efforts-a plan for action in the event of disaster, based on experience during. past disasters." A final recommendation is to "work with diocesan offices in potential disaster areas to help them develop disaster plans and know what to do in the event of disaster either in their own or a neighboring diocese."

Favor Compulsory Celibacy The Bishops formally endorsed compulsory celibacy for Latinrite priests for the third time in as many years. And, they also extended the hand of understanding to former priests by asking for greater con.sistency in laicization procedures saying that their talents and education "should not be lost to the Church and the human community." The Bishops' strong support for the Church's discipline on celibacy warned that it is 'not realistic' to expect change in it. Yet, their statement remained cautiously open-ended. It is not "the last word to be said," according to Archbishop

Francis J. Furey of San Antonio, Tex., chairman of the task force that produced it. "But right now and in the future, as far as the Bishops are concerned, we think celibcay is a good thing," the Archbishop declared.

. Michigan. Favors ,School Aid Bill

THE ANCHOR-Diocese of Fall River-Thurs. Nov. 20, 1969



Write 'No


LANSING (NC)-A one billion dollar state school aid bill, which includes $25 million in aid for non public schools, has been. approved by the Michigan State Senate. The landmark school - parochiaid-bill passed by a 22-15' vote. A companion measure. to eliminate the property tax credit from the state income tax also was approved by a 20-17 margin to set the stage fur action on the state aid-parochiaid bill. The Senate adjourned until Dec. 2, when an effort will be made to reconsider the vote by which the state aid bill passed. If the reconsideration motion is rejected, the bill will then go to the House. The $25 million in' aid for non public schools would be used to pay up to 50 per cent of the salaries of an estimated 5,800 certified lay teachers who teach 'secular subjects in Michigan's nearly 1,000 non public schools. Fifty per cent of lay teacher salaries will be paid during· the 1970-71 and 1971-72 school years, while 75 per cent of the salaries will be paid starting in the 1972-73 school year·. Both the school aid and prop'erty tax repealer bills are part of Gov. William G. Milliken's educational reform program.


The' full impa t of the Catholic school crisis is making itself felt. This is he time for parents of children in Catholic schools and all others interested in the survival of the system and in holding the tax' rate in communities to let .. . their minds be kntwn.. Legislato'rs are responsive to the wishes of the ~lec­ torate.

Catholic scho Is fulfill the public'function of educating. They safeguar the right of parents in educating their. children in a scho 1 system of their choic~. They ease the tax burden' on co. munities to a truly tremendous extent. Communities can 0 longer take advantage of all they do while 'ignoring' the financial burdens' they struggle under. And their collapse iWould throw .communities into financial crisis.


No one is ask ng the State to pick up' the whole tab for the running of the Catholic school system. But there are areas where th State could cpnstitutionally' assist. The outlay would be co paradvely ~ittle.The services given and money aved would be· great. . . . But there isn more time left to talk about the situ-. ation. The time is here for' action..

Study Prob~ems Of EXaPIrDSOnerS WASHINGTON (NC)-A man without a job, without a skill, and "burdened with a prison record" must be among the most disadvantaged of persons. Acting upon this assumption, the government is sponsoring some programs designed to reduce crime and delinquency through help to prison inmates, ex-inmates and first offenders charged with less serious offenses. The effort is spurre:! on by a somber warning from no less than U.S. Chief Justice Warren Burger that "without effective correctional systems, an increasing proportion of our population will become chronic criminals with no other way of life except the revolving door of crime, prison, and more crime." The U.S. Department of Labor has contracted with the Georgetown Un.iversity Law Center here for a study of the degree to which a criminal record is an impediment to persons seeking employment in the public sector. The study will be limited to state and local governments, but the G.U. researchers will send questionnaires to agencies in all 50 states, all cities of 50,000 or -more population, all countries of 100,000 population, and public organizations such as port authorities and planning districts. It is hoped to come up with data that will form the basis of legislation opening up more jobs to ex-offenders.

Africans Oppose" Role of Guinea Pigs In Experimentation on :Celibacy

duties in the spirit of the same self-sacrifice as that of a celibate priest? The five African priests believe that he cannot. They believe that the needs of the African Catholic are far too great and far too complex to be han~ 'died by someone who is only able to devote a part of his life and a part of his energies to the priesthood. Celibacy is not the real problem for the future of the priesthood in Africa, said the priest from Kenya. Once the priest establishes himself with the African Catholics he must serve, they will accept the priest and his celibacy. Serving What the five priests feel the Africans will not accept is someone who is incapable of serving them totally and unselfishly. This is what the African Catholics demand because they feel the priests belong to them, the five said. The five priests believe that this close relationship cannot be maintained by married deacons, no matter what their strength is in number.

COCHIN (NC) - A visiting priest-official of the U.S. Catholic Relief Services (CRS) has denied that the agency's food aid to India is used to make converts to Christianity. There is "no proselytizing aspect at alI in our work," Msgr. Andrew P. Landi. assistant executive director of CRS, told the NC News Service. Msgr. Landi was asked to comment on fears expressed in the past by some Indians, notably Hindu extremists, that CRS and other U.S. Christian relief to India's poor is employed to make them welI disposed toward Christianity. The priest replied: "No. No. We have nothing to do with conversion. Our work is completely Secular. There is nothing spiritual in it." The statement came upon the priest's departure from Kerala state after a two-day visit to Trivandrum and Cochin during a tour of alI CRS offices in India.

LADYSMITH (NC)-Although teaching appointments in the Servite (Servants of Mary) community will continue to be made in accordance with "the needs of person and community," a new plan will permit Servite nuns to contract vacant positions on an individual basis, the mother· house here in Wisconsin an,nounced. In making the announcement, Mother Mary Joan, president of Servants of Mary, said "as part· of each Sister's personal growth and professional responsibility she may apply directly for the position available and wherein she feels she can be most effective both profess·ionally and as a person." In the existing community commitments, primarily schools, no school will receive more Servite Sisters than are presently serving there, while some schools will receive fewer. The purpose of this policy, a spokesman explained, is to aid in preventing the closing of some schools. The spokesman said it was designed to provide a better distribution of Sisters so schools with severely reo stricted resources will be as·sured of a sufficient quota of Sisters' to keep teacher salary costs within budgetary limits.

Says Parents S,hould G~t 'A'a For Home Aid to Students

Educators Honor Ohio Governor

By Joseph and Marilyn Roderick

Today was report card day and I think Marilyn and I deserve an A for Effort. Our report card describes an A as "Outstanding-maximum use of talent: ste~dy thorough work in class." If we substitute the word patience for talent and home for class we surely deserve an A. great golden brown turkeys, and head bowed over a table Who was it who ran from solemn blessing. store to store looking for a With the pall that the dismal package of thr'ee ring notebook paper? Who suffered the anguish of sending a child to school without a pen that "writes red"? Who but Marilyn went back to school three times to find a piece of poster paper that Meryl just had to have? Who answers the endless questions . about homework? No one else 'but yours truly, all of which is deserving of some sort of recognition. Sister Says If there is a phrase that is guaranteed to bring panic into our lives it is "Sister says ...." This simple beginning is usually followed by something that Sister must have no later than yesterday. Of course, we know that Sister told them a week before to get this or that and we are hearing about it at the last possible moment, but to the children getting what Sister says is a matter of life and death. They begin to panic Sunday night just as they are preparing for bed and we have learned by now that no amount of anger or conciliation can assuage their need and that there is nothing to be done but to embark on a search for that drug store that stocks all sorts of miscellaneous items. Then there is the telephone. Until eight-thirty the phone is constantly ringing. What is the homework? What is the answer to the third problem on page 86? Do you think the teacher was fair in giving us so much homework? The buzzing is incessant. The children spend more time on the phone than in doing theIr homework. And God forbid that they should ever answer a phone. It seems I spend whole evenings answering it and then calling for the children. Where Are They? But worst of all is the panic that comes from misplaced homework, overdue library books, etc. I would hate to co'unt the hours we have spent tracing down papers that were to be signed and returned to school, in searching for the book that was borrowed and has to be returned today. or "I'm dead." The less said about this the better because it is in such moments that patience disappears very rapidly, to be replaced by anger and finally blind rage. At any rate, we as parents deserve just treatment and as such should be rewarded by our teachers with an effort mark befitting our unseen labors at home! In the Kitchen As I'm writing this column we are experiencing our 10th day of rain for the month of November and spirits are a bit damp, to say the least. Thoughts of the coming holidays should buoy us up a bit if nothing else does. Thanksgiving is just on the horizon and no other holiday (except perhaps the fourth of July) is more typically American or more typically New England. It's at this time of year that many of us long for large open fireplaces, warm family kitchens and all the other nostalgic sights and sounds that recall our heritage. Thanksgiving stirs up memories of the gathering of the clan,


CLEVELAND (NC) - Ohio's Gov. James A. Rhodes was honored by the Ohio Catholic Education Association at its fourth biennial convention here. Gov. Rhoues received the aCEA medal "for extending the vision of education in Ohio." The award, given for outstanding contributiun to education, has been presented only once before-in 1965 to R. Sargent Shriver, former Peace Corps director.. Accepting the award, Gov. Rhodes praised Catholics, especially Catholic educators, as "people who do more with less than any other segment of the state's population." He also said the award "does not belong to me but to the many, many members qf the state legislature and to the many leaders here who worked so hard." "It is important, however, to keep in mind that the people wanted this legislation. If the people had not believed in it, it would not have passed," he said. Gov. Rhodes referred to legislation which allocates $50 perpupil per-year for a two-year period for all pupils of the state, including those in non public schools. The bill is considered a milestone by Catholic educational leaders in the state because it provides for supplementary payments for those laymen and women who teach other than religionoooriented subjects.

weather has thrown over us it is difficult to remember all that we should be thankful for, but if we just glance back in time to the days when those marvelous open fireplaces were the only source of heat. when wonder drugs were grown out in the back yard ,and when only the very strong survived, we realize that truly we of today have a great deal to be thankful for.

Baptist heologian Urges Dialogue With Past

CHILLUM (NC)-Father Joseph M. O'Connell was turned down by the Prince Georges (County) Board of Election Supervisors in his bid to file as a candidate for the Maryland House of Delegates. He was blocked by a state constitutional provision which says "no minister or preacher of the gospel or of any religious creed or denomination . , . shall be eligible as senator or delegate." The law is aimed at preserving separation of Church and Stllte. Father O'Connell also faced another obstaele because he had made a mistake when he registered as a county voter. His registration card only indicated one year's residence in the county, whereas three years' residence is required of legislators. Father. O'Cqnnell said he has lived in Prince Georges County about four years and had misunderstood in registering as a voter by only listing the time he had been at his latest address. The 34-year-old priest is on a leave of absence from the Washington archdiocese, where he was one of more than 50 priests who in August, 1968, signed a "statement of conscience" announcing they would respect their parishioners' right of conscience on the birth control issue. Father O'Connell said he has been prohibited by Patrick Cardinal O'Boyle of Washington from hearing confessions but thai he can still .celebrate Mass and preach.

ChilWoman's Club. The tour involved six homes, the organization's Rock Street clubhouse, an unbelievably cooperative weatherman and uncounted hours of loving labor on the part of club members, their families and friends. It began at the home of Mr. Mrs. Charles Cohen, where Hanukkah customs were explained by Mrs. John Horvitz and Miss Margaret M. Lahey, 37 Forest Street, was hostess. A "Happy Hanukkah" sign on the front lawn identified the house and set the tone for the beautifully dec- . orated interior, featuring a holiday table with an eight-branched menorah. Mrs. Horvitz explained the significance of the menorah and also called attention to an ancient eight-holed oil lamp and a replica of the Wailing Wall of Jerusalem, displayed on a sideboard. Children's dredels were at each place setting, and Mrs. Horvitz said that these top-like toys are spun for prizes. The Hannukkah observance lasts eight days, on each of which children receive gifts. From Hanukkah customs, observed the world over by Jewish families, tour participants were whisked to an Italian Christmas celebration,depicted at the home of Miss Gertr;ude L.

schools, according to research by the California State Department of Sducation. This year privately supported schools enrolled a total of 370,000 students in grades 1 to 12. Gov. Regan in his proclamation said: A significant percentage of students in California are receiving their education in private educational institutions. Private education is supported by other than public funds, although the constituents of private education pay their share of taxes supporting public schools. Faith in U. S. California is relieved of the tax burden associated with the education of those students enrolled in private educational institutions. Private educational institutions date from the earliest history of the nation. The existence of private educational institutions represents faith in the United States, it ideals and institutions. Private education seeks to ex~ emplify those human qualities that inspire character and wholesome citizenship. Private education provides a healthy balance of competition to public education, thus assuring quality for both systems.

Sabots were at the fireplace at the next home on the tour, that of Mr. and Mrs, Thomas F. Burke, which depicted the Christmas customs of France. Also on display were brightly-colored santons, tiny figures of French townspeople. Mrs; Alfred Roy explained that Mass highlights the French Christmas, foIl owed by the traditional reveillon supper. She was aided by Mrs. Alfred Berube as hostess. Portuguese Christmas customs were explained at the home of Mr. and Mrs. James F. Duffy, where Miss Clorinda Ventura narrated and Miss Laura Nobrega was hostess. Christmas wheat was growing at the Portuguese crib and Miss Ventura said .that traditionaIly it is planted on the feast cif St. Lucy, Dec. 13, and that its green shoots symbolize the Body of Christ. Guests leaving the Portuguese Christmas display were invited to sample rapsados, a holiday candy wrapped in gay Christmas tissue paper. Oplatek of Peace It was oplatek and wine at the Polish Christmas house, the home of Mr. and Mrs. Henry J .. Feitelberg, where Rev. Robert Kaszynski and Sister Mary, Helen, C.S.S.F. were narrators and Mrs. George Wrobel was hostess.

Even the food is symbolic, noted the religious. Sugar is for sweetness of nature and potatoes remind partakers that they should be ,"firm as the potato" in faith and courage. Irish Green Green was the predominant color at the Irish Christmas celebrated at the clubhouse. Miss Alice Harrington, narrator, noted that many ancient traditions depicted are no longer fcund except in scattered places, but said they had lost none of their beauty. She invited her listeners to spend a month in the home of "Sean and Bridget," two Irish children, and she showed the customs such children might ob·· serve, including the Christ candle in the window, a homemade crib, and the use of a "Christmas loaf" to keep famine from the door.

Stud ies Reform Of Divine Office VATICAN CITY (NC)-Cardinals and, bishops of the Holy See's special commission -for liturgical reform attended a weeklong plenary session to tackle what a Vatican official described as "the final questions" in reform of the Divine Office. The reform of the Divine Office, the official prayer of the Church and the daily prayer of priests, has been under study for almost five years at the behest of the Second Vatican Council, which laid down principles and some particulars of the reform. Father John RoteIle, O.S.A., secretary of the commission's study group for patristic readings, said that the reformed office would be given to the Church within a year. What gives his prediction special authority is the fact that the delicate work of finding patristic readings to fill modern needs and to fulfill modern standards of research has been precisely the work holding up completion of the reform. At this plenary meeting of the approximately 50 cardinals and bishops of the special commission were periti, or experts, of the commission who had met the previous week to prepare for the plenary session.

New York Bishops

Pled'ge Schools To Continue NEW YORK (NC) - The eight Catholic bishops of New York State issued a jotnt statement pledging their "firm and unqualified intention to continue our schools and. institutions as long as humanly and financially possible." "We pledge, here and now, to our' parents, teachers and young men and women to do eyery~ thing in our power to continue," the bishops said. But,the' bishops'. statement also said "we would be remiss not to point out that it. is becoming an increasingly heavy burden on parents. and other supporters."· They said. they looked to government officials and the' non public sector for assistance to, parents in carrying that burden.

Couple Compose l»rayer First, he said, there are vary-inging texts, about 20 readings for the rite itself. There are a number of responses following each reading, and an Alleluia verse to introduce the Gospel. There are four collects, three prayers over the gifts, three postcommunion prayers, enabling the celebrant to choose the best one for the occasion. In addition, there will be 'a choice among three possible blessings for the rings. The rite calls for the priest to preach a homily which·takes into consideration the p.articular circumstances of the couple, in addition to calling to mind the dignity of, marriage, the beauty of married love, and the responsibility of the spouses. The rite also provides for a prayer composed by the couple to be offered, following the exchange of marriage vows.

Christmas Tour Continued from Page Eleven Traditionally, said Miss Harrington, the Irish haye no Christmas tree. Greens are important, however, with the holly reminding families of the thorns of Christ, the ivy, "a weak plant," of . the weakness of humanity without Christ, and the mistletoe, whose name means "allhealing," of Christ's healing touch. Miss Margaret M. Lahey of 547 New Boston Road was the hostess for Ireland. Also at the clubhouse was the United States display, with Miss' Katherine L. Hogan as narrator and Mrs.. James A. O'Brien Jr. as hostess. American customs draw from many lands, including the German Advent wreath and Christmas tree, and the Italian crib.' A striking Jesse tree was handmade by Anthony J. Geary and decorated with symbols of Christ by Mrs. Geary. An integral part of Christmas is the sharing. of refreshments with friends, pointed out Miss Hogan, in inviting guests to climax their tour with refreshments served from an appropriately decorated holiday table at the clubhouse. Traditional foods were an important part of each home's display, including Irish trifle, a 12course Polish repast, and national foods from each of the other countries represented.· General chairmen for the ambitious project were Mrs. Anthony J. Geary and Mrs. Michael J. McMahon, aided by a large committee and appreciated by all who made last Sunday's tour.

Pope Speaks on Authority, Obedience Church Democratic in Goal, Not in Origin

YOUNG ORGANISTS: Recitalists will be Davis Balestracci. David Carrier and John Danis.

Plan Organ Recital Three Young Area Students Will P'resent Program in New Bedford Nov. 23 Davis Balestracci of New Bedfordand David Carrier and John Danis, both of Fall River, will present an organ recital on the D. A. Flentrop pipe organ of the First Unitarian Church of New Bedford, Sunday, Nov. 23, at 8 P.M. There will be no admission charged. Davis, 17, is a senior at New Bedford High School. He has studied under Michel Labens and Edmond Desrosiers and is presently the organist at the Pacific Union Congregational Church of Westport.

VATICAN CITY (NC)-Pope Paul VI has once ,again returned to the subject of the relationship between authority and obedience. At a general audience, the Pope took note that the traditional relationship of power or authority and obedience "is also a victim today of the modern fashion of sociological contestation." He said "there are those who wish to change it and minimize it." But within the Church, he said authority cannot be denied. This "is clear from its divine origin," he added. He said, however, that it can be changed, "that is, corrected, yes, perfected." He cited as an example the dictum: authority is service. This, he said, was summed up as far as the papacy was concerned by Pope Gregory the Great, who described his office as "the servant of the servants of God." But, he added: "This exact and cautionary formula does not annul the power of the pope ,~ " "the power of the Church is for the service of brothers; not at the service of others." He said that "the scope of au-

Class Tells Only a mediocre person is al-Maugham ways at his best.

thority is for the good of others; not that others are the sources of authority itself. The Church in the exercise of its authority, to use modern terms, is democratic in its goal, in its reason for being; but not in its origin, since it does not derive its power from a "membership basis" but from Christ, from God, to whom alone it is responsible."

Urge Protectuon For Land Rights SEATILE (NC)-A provincial meeting of the National Federation of Priests' Councils here called upon the Church to intercede with the federal government for protection of the land rights of Indians in Alaska. The joint provincial meeting of the NFPC adopted a resolution drafted by its social action committee which urged the Church to exert its influence with the federal government "in the matter of the moral and legal rights of the Alaska Federation of Natives' land claims." The resolution expressed hope the present land claims dispute will not generate into "another sorry repetition" of the government's past treatment of Indians' rights.

The Pope added that "power in the Church cannot take on the historically changeable forms which power assumes in the government of civil society""" It has only the office of legalizing what the community has worked out and decreed. "The power in the Church preserves the Iibertv and the initiative which the' Lord conferred on the Apostles, on the hierarchy, and not only for the guarantee of exterior order but also for the welfare both of the individual faithful as well as for 'the community. "This welfare places first the dignity, liberty, responsibility and sanctification of all and every component of the ecclesial body. "Therefore, when today one speaks of not contesting authority as such in the Church, but criticizes its way of exercising it, it is well said, on the condition that this seeking for this ideal way does not authorize dispensation from, that is disobedience from, the' real and legitimate way by which authority carries out its mandate."

David, 19, is presently studying organ at the New England Conservatory of Music under Yuko Hayashi. He has also studied under Normand A. Gingras and is presently organist of St; Mary's Cathedral in Fall River. John, 16, is a junior at Bishop Connolly High School. He is presently the organist of Holy Name Church in Fall River and has studied under Normand A. Gingras. The program will include selections from Dubois, Bach, Boellman, Franck, and Couperin.

University Head Says Student Di$ยงent Must Respect Rights CHICAGO (NC) - The president of Loyola University here said the school will not tolerate student demonstrations that would infringe upon the rights of other members of the university community. Father James F. Maguire, S.J., said the university has been' striving to create an atmosphere of understanding, open discussion and action on pressing problems in the belief that this, not demonstrations, is the most effective method of dealing with student dissent. In an address to the University's Citizens Board at the Chicago Club, Father Maguire discussed a University Statement on Student Dissent which, he said will form the basis of future policy on the five Chicago campuses of the 13,OOO-student Loyola' University. He conceded that student dissent has been evidenced at Loyola "on infrequent occasions," but in lawful, non-violent ways. "We are hopeful that as more well-conceived changes are effected by the university after studying the problems with students that more and more the conference table wlil be viewed by students as the 'best and quickest way to effect needed changes at Loyola," Father Maguire said.

However, he said, if some students choose to demonstrate in a way which would disrupt the university, an appeal will be made to them to discuss the issues with administrators and faculty. Last Resort If the students are not inclined to discuss the issues, they win be informed they are subject to disciplinary action, including suspension and expulsion if they continue to infringe on the rights of others. As a last resort, Father Maguire said, university security people, the courts and the police will be appealed to as the circumstances of the individual case suggest. "We are dealing with a deepseated, many faceted problem that will take years to' solve," Father Maguire stated. "In the meantime, every effort )'rlust be made to achieve understanding between the ,university administration, faculty and students. "For only with understanding will there be a truly discriminating appraisal of what it is" " ,~ that may be thwarting and limiting students and what, for this reason, should be changed."

MAD AT THE WORLD? Maybe she just wonders what kind of life she'll have when she grows up. Right now she knows only poverty, hunger and ignorance. But Missionaries have come to her village bringing food, medicine, and the Word of God. They have brought HOPE for this little girl! The Society for the Propagation of the Faith supports these missionaries and countless others throughout the world. But we cannot help unless you do. Will you sacrifice today to help a missionary serve mankind? Help us help them!

Ontario Liberals For Government Aid to Schools TORONTO (NC)-Ontario Liberal party leader Robert Nixon announced he and the liberal caucus favor a government-supported Catholic and public school system from kindergarten to the end of high school. In effect, this meant Liberal party backing for a formal petition presented to the government five months ago by the Ontario Separate School Trustees Association. The petition was supported by the Ontario bishops and by Catholic educational and parish organizations. The Liberal statement recommended the immediate establishment of a Select Committee of the legislature to work out the administrative and financial details so that Catholic schools could share fully "in the development of equal opportunity in education. At present, so-called separate schools in Ontario receive government grants only up to grade 10. And support for the first two years of high school is at the elementary school scale. The Liberal caucus further recommended the immediate implementation of full provincial secondary school operating grants for grades nine and 10 to the Catholic sector ':' " ~'" Nixon made it clear that the statement, was concerned only "with equal opportunity" in the two public school sectors, and not with the distinctive philosophy of either. With regard to educational institutions outside the publiclysupported system "no pressure should be applied to schools wishing to remain independent to come into the public system. the statement "However," added, "Catholic schools wishing to retain private status must not expect public financial support. Present Roman Catholic secondary schools coming into the public separate school system will transfer capital facilities, subject to any debt, without cost to the system." The Liberal Party of Ontario is the official opposition in the Ontario legislature. The party in power the Progressive Conservatives, have yet to make any statement on the issue.

ANCHOR15 John [(ane, 'Mr. S't. William's,' Has Been Pillar THE Thurs., Nov. 20, 1969 Of Fall 'River Parislt for 39 Years Declares Priest

By Patricia McGowan

Anything you can say about him that's complimentary, I'll more than double." That's Msgr. Raymond T. Considine's comment on John E. Kane, a parishioner he dubs "Mr. St. William's." The Fall River pastor notes that Kane, a white-haired 68, has been a member of St. William's for 39 years. He's a parish trustee, a parish council member and a " pillar of the St. Vincent de Paul Society. Perhaps most impressive to sleepier mortals is the fad. hat for years

he's collected at the 6:30 Mass on Sunday mornings. But that's only the beginning of his activities. Annually he's a moving spirit in preparations for the Bishop's Ball and in 1965 he with Miss Margaret Lahey was co-chairman of the social event. As chairman of the St. Vincent de Paul camp program for the Diocese since 1948, he had a personal hand in construction of Nazareth Camp for exceptional children and St. Vincent's Day Camp. "Even go out there and cut the grass sometimes," he chuckles. Drag 'Em Out He has a special' fondness for Nazareth Camp, in operation for four years. "We have those kids going 路in the water now," he said. "The first time they went, we had to coax them in-then when it was time to go, we had to drag them out, they liked it so much.", He's often to be found at St. Vincent's Home in the non-camping season. All the kids know him. "I'm the guy that hand,s out nickels and dimes," he explains. How did Kane get into all this? "Easy," he says. "They're always looking for volunteers." When not volunteering, Kane is busy maintaining several ten'ement ,houses he owns. He describes himself as a jack of all trades and credits his all-round handiness to his 47 years as a worker at Fall River's former Drape's Market, ending as a foreman in the wholesale department. "I started in 1916 as a delivery boy for Drape's," he said. "I went around with a horse anci wagon." He recalled that 1916 was also the year he graduated from St. Mary's Cathedral School. "Still looks the same," he said. Still vivid are his memories of loadng and unloading fish from the Fa.! I River-New York boat. "We'd meet the boat at 5:40 in the morning to get the southern fish from New York and we'd load it with our New England fish for the return trip about 6 Upholds Preaching at night."

'Man for Others' ST. LOUIS (NC)-A priest, if he fully becomes "a man for others," is warmly and personally linked to those whom he serves in his ministry, John Joseph Cardinal Carberry of St. Louis told the District 12 convention of the Serra Club here. Addressing Serruns from Missouri and nearby Illinois, Cardinal Carberry emphasized the other-directed nature of the priesthood. "The priesthood is not possessed by the priest for himself, but for others," the Cardinal said. "The priest is a man' who does not live for himself, but for others. He drew on his own experience by noting that "a constant joy of my priesthood has been the very warm, genuine and lasting friendships with, many people, and this human, social bond of friendship has been supernaturalized because of my priestly ministry in their behalf. "As a priest, I had the privilege of baptizing them and' their children, of confirming and witnessing their marriages, of standing by them in time of sor,row and difficulty." He urged the Serrans and other laity to be a source of strength and encouragement to priests by their loyalty and faith. He said that lay persons should let priests know how much they need and love them. "This would be a great source of encouragement to the priests as it has been to myself," he said. Harry O'Haire, executive director of Serra International, reported that there are now 258 Serra Clubs in the U. S. and Canada with a total of 10,000 members. Members strive to promote and encourage priestly vocations.

Private School Aid Issue in Campaign DUNEDIN (NC)-Although the issue of state aid to New Zealand's independent schools, mainly Catholic, is central to the current general election campaign, the sectarian fireworks it has always produced in the past have been conspicuous by their absence. True, there have been some rumblings from such predictable sources as the Orange Lodge, but that is about all. Some opponents have argued that aid to independent schools would perpetuate divisiveness in the community, but the main argument against it has turned on whether it might not deprive a hardpressed state system of money it needs. . That the issue has been discusssed so rationally is seen as evidence of how far the ecumenical movement has come and how the growing contact between Catholics and other Christians has broken down old suspicions and misunderstanding.
