Princeton (Jniversitg

And the Priest

(Editorial) The Aquinas Foundation is a religious center provided by the Diocese of Trenton for the approximately four hun­ dred Ciltholic students at Princeton University. Since its erection in 1952, its Director has been the Reverend Hugh Halton, a Dominican Father who holds a Licentiate in' Sacred Theology and Doctorates in Philosophy and Civil Law, the last two degrees from Oxford. Father Halton was appointed by the Bishop of Trenton to take spiritual charge of the Catholic students at Princeton and to speak out in defense of the faith and morals of those committed to his care. This he did, with intelligenceand wit, in his Sunday talks, through lectures by himself or guest speak­ ers, through ads taken out in the undergraduate Daily Princetonion. Although there is no official connection between the Aquinas Foundation and the authorities at Princeton, the University did grant Father Halton certain academic priv­ fleges and courtesies such as permission to march in aca­ demic processions with the faculty, use of the University bulletin for announcements pertaining to the Foundation, the use of University rooms for lectures and guest speakers, the listing of the Foundation in the University catalogue. Withdraws Privileges On September 23, 1957, Princeton University issued, a statement through its president, Dr. Goheen, declaring: "The university has withdrawn its recognition of Fr. Halton. The courtesies and privileges which have been extended to him, as they are to all denominational' chap­ lains; have been terminated. He is no longer entitlt~d to claim he has any official standing in Princeton University:' The statement further said: "Under claims of advancing the pursuit of truth, he has resorted to irresponsible attacks upon'the intellectual integrity of faculty members.... His accusations in the past year have broadened into large, un­ BUbstantiated charges of malfeasance against the admin­ istration of the university.... " The statement also men­ tioned that "the offending individual has managed to alienate from himself many of the Catholic students and faculty members.•. :' Dr. Goheen stated that $ince June, 1956, efforts had been made to'reniove Father Halton, and that this present action was decided upon by the :Board of Trustees in June, 1957. N{) instances of Father Halton's "attacks" were given. One Basic Issue The Most Reverend George W. Ahr, Bishop of Tren­ ton, from whom Father Halton holds his appointment as Director of the Foundation, said this: "The published re­ ports do not adequately present either the background of the situation or the basic issue involved. The basic issue is the right of a priest charged with the spiritual care of Catholic students in a secular university to speak out in defense of the faith and morals of those committed to Tmis care. "The published reports do not recount the personal vilification that has been visited upon Fr. Halton in the Princeton community since first he undertook so to speak. "For the present, the facilities of the Aquinas Insti­ tute will continue to be available to the Catholic students at Princeton. Fr. Halton will continue as Director:' Now let us examine the whole situation in the light of the facts. Dr. Goheen said that Father Halton made "irrespon­ (Sible attacks upon the intellectual integrity of faculty members" and "large, unsubstantiated charges of mal­ feasance against the administration of the university." These are serious charges. Dr. Goheen does not cite any :7nstances to substantiate his accusations. Father Halton has replied that the purpose of Prince­ ton's action in his regard was "to silence rational debate and to leave unchalle,nged professional incompetence with reference to Faith and reason in university life and thought...." He said that the President's statement was un "effort to discard intelligent criticism of false teaching ~n a community dedicated to free expression.•••" ' Four Obvious Instances In the history of this matter, there are at least four 8bvious instances of what Princeton evidently looks on as '"irresponsible attacks" and Father Halton calls "rational debate" and challenges to professional incompetence. First: Princeton invited Alger Hiss in 1956 to speak at the University. Father Halton said of this: "In an academic community dedicated to the search for enduring truth, an unrepentent perjurer has nothing to say.", Alger Hiss is a convicted perjurer. The purpose of a university is to seek after truth. Hiss' speaking at Prince­ ion was, at least, open to valid criticism. Second: Professor Emeritus Walter T. Stace was, r!'om 1932 until 1955, professor of metaphysics at Princeton. I)r, Stace has written that God is a "'blank, void, nothing;" \ ~od is a "subjective illusion." The Catholic Church, accord­ ltJg, to Stace, "is ultimately pased on nothing else but an iHusion." He defines the Christian concept of God as· "a ,'uperstition, a gigantic and perhaps benevolent ghost, an l;nmense, disembodied and superearthly clergyman:' , Since Dr. Stace had tremendous influence on the un­ uitical minds of Princeton undergraduates; since his phil..

Bishops Outline Freedom Limit On Censorship

By 'Rev. Edward J. Mitchell

WASHINGTON (NC)­ Freedom of the press is a basic right to be respected and safeguarded. But freedom of expression has social implications, and civil authority "has the right and duty to exercise such control over the various media of communication, as is necessary to safeguard pub­ lic morals." The Bishops of the United States emphasized these 'points in a statement on "Censorship," issued in their behalf by the Administrative Board of the National Catholic Welfare Con­ 'ference. The statement was adopted at the annual general 'meeting o~ the Archbishops and Bishops held at the Catholic University of America. Turn to Page Ter

Fall River Diocese Takes Active Part in Sodality Renewal Bis Saeculari-Pope Pius XII - Selectivity - Outstanding de­ votion to Mary-Federation of Sodalities-the S~cial Apostolate -Should PopeoGregory the XIII, who in 1563 mandated the first Sodalists as the nucleus of the Counter-Reformation, return in 1957 would he recognize the modern Sodality? . The first ·Sodalitie~ were for men so that men and boys of today are only coming into their own when they become Sodalists. But for many years the Sodality has been looked upon as a wom­ an's world. For many years, too, it has not been the effective in­ strument for personal holiness

and consequent social apostolate to neighbor that Pope Gregory XIII's early Sodality was. The Sodality picture is chang­ ing. The resurgence slowly be­ coming a crescendo began in 1948 with our present Holy Fath­ er's Apostolic Constitution call­ ing for greater selectivity in the admission of Sodalists. Since then he has reiterated the call to a renewal of spirit in .Sodalities -in 1952 calling for a World Federation of Sodalities, in 1954 convoking the first Wor.ld Con­ gress of Sodalities. Our own Diocese is taking an active part in this renewal. The Queen of Peace Sodality Union of the Fall River Diocese is the first of it~ kind in New England. It has been affiliated with the Natio'nal Federation of Sodalities_ of Our Lady in St. Louis. Sunday, November 17, saw an­ other step forward in answer to the Pope's desire for the renewal of Sodalities. A Workshop in Leadership, directed by Father Edward S. Stanton, ,S.J., New England Regional Director of • Sodalities, was held at Sacred Hearts Academy. High were the 'ideals he set for the seventy­ eight Sodalist-delegates of the Fall River Sodality Union and their priest and sister Moderators and Directc1rs. Their. Sodalities are to be characterized by selectivity, co­ operation with the Hierarchy, coOperation w.ith other apostolic groups, dedication to the social apostolate.

the media of radio and television. This was announced by Bishop William A. Scully of Albany, chairman of the committee dur­ ing the annual meeting of the Archbishops and Bishops of the United States ,held at the Cath­ olic University of America. At the same time, Bishop Scully announced that the sys­ tem for classifying motion pic­ tures by the National Legion of, Decency has been changed to in­ clude three divisions under Section A listings. They are: ' A-I: Morally unobjectionable for general patronage. A-2: Morally unobjectionable for adults and adolescents.

A-3: Morally unobjectionable

for adults. According to the report, the episcopal committee during the coming year, will undertake a . study to determine the most suit­ able and acceptable means of carrying out the aims and objec­ tives of Pope Pius XII's encycli­ cal, Miranda Prorsus, and how to apply them to radio and tele­ vision on the American scene. With the move into the other media of communications, the committee will change .its name to the Bishop's Committee for Motion Pictures, Radio and Tele­ Vision. The report said that changes , In legion ratings were made to emphasize the real. moral dan­ gers which are present in films rated in the Band C categories. Bishop Scully said the atten­ tion of pastors should be directed to the necessity of instructing their people to avoid attending such films since they constitute a threat not only to parishioners' spiritual life but also to the moral behavior, patterns which conditions public morality. During the past year the legion reviewed and classified 418 films, including 335 domestic and 83 foreign. Of domestic films, 111, or 33 per cent, were classified A-I; 114, or 34 per cent, were A-2; 109, or 3~ per cent, were class B, and one film was con­ demned. Twenty-eight foreign films, or 34 per cent were rated A-I; 17, or 20 per cent, were A-2; 28, or 34 per cent, were B films, and 10, or 12 per cent were con­ demned. '

Maryknoller Says New Leadership Aids Church in -South America

WASHINGTON (NC) - Bap­ tized Catholics in Latin America number over 90 'per cent of total populations, despite sometimes, desperate economic and social handicaps, according to Mary­ knoll Father John J.

Though there is still a des­ perate need in Latin America for priests, Father Considine continued, there has been rapid progreS!;l in some countries to­ ward stimulating and fostering priestly vocations. With regard to social advances made through the Church in several Latin American coun­ tries, Father Considine singled out as advances the frequent pastorals of Latin American Bishops on social problems, work done by the hierarchy and clergy to achieve better housing and living cOl)ditions for under­ privileged groups, appeals for higher living standards for rural workers and a growing under­ standing on the part of Latin Americans of the Church's con­ cern for their condition.

It ranks low on the occupa­ ti~nal list of a large share of the population, Sen. Kennedy said. Its "chief practitioners are rarely well or favorably known," he added. "No education,' except finding

your way around a smoke-filled

room, is considered necessary

for political success,," he con­


Sen. Kennedy. reminded the

students. that the mutual suspi­

cion between scholar and pol­

itician did not always exist.

"I would ask you who look

with disdain and disfavor upon

the possibilities of a political

career, to remember that our

nation's first great politicians

were traditionally our ablest,

most respected, most talented

leaders," he said.

They were men, the Senator

commented, "who moved from

one field to another with amaz­

ing versatility and vitality."

He reminded students' "will­

ing to enter the abused and ne­

glected profession of politics"

that the nation stands in serious

need of the fruits of their edu­


He emphasized that the need .is not for political scholars whose education has been so special­ ized as to exclude them from participation in current events. "What we need are men who can ride easily over broad fields of knowledge and recognize the mutual dependence of our two .worlds," he concluded.

'By Most Rev. Fulton J. Sheen, D.D;

Our Divine Lord expressing the purpose of His visitation to earth said: "It is fire that I have come to. spread over the earib, and' what better wish can I have than 0 that it should be kindled.". When He sent His Spirit upon the Church it ap­ peared as "tongues of fire." Fire is a symbol of a quick, triumphant energy which transforms us into His Likeness. This fire of God, if it falls on us, burns our coldness, makes us glow with en­ thusiasm, making the Creed a living power, the Sacraments a reservoir of apostolate, and our lives a flame of earn­ est consecration. We are to be set' on fire for the love of God and the Church as fire turns' the wettest and eoldest day into flame! ' .

TORONTO (NC)-"While you implement the new techniques:, and skills which are So vital; keep before you the old tech"; nique of charity," Auxiliary Bishop F. V. Allen of Toronto told 250 nuns attending the Cath­ olic Hospital Association con­ vention. Bishop Allen said it was the spirit of charity which had prompted, the, Sisters' predeces­ sors to establish their works for the sick and infirm, and that this spirit has characterized the Cath­ olic hospital through the ages. "It is this spirit that more than ever must prevail in this age, given so much to materialism , and secularism. ,We must ,look to you Sisters to keep burning the flame of charity;" he said.

The day free expression of opinion is extinguished and all are constrained to fall into a single pattern of' political thought and action, democracy has died. . As indispensable as is freedom of expression to us as citizens, it is no less indispensable to the Church in carrying out her mis,siQn to preach the gospel.

After obtaining initial permis­ V sion from Bishop Connolly, the club contacted all 10 pastors in its district, informed them of the objectives of the program, and asked their assistance and cooperation. Members say that J ... the benevolent interest and un­ qualified support of Bishop Con­ nolly, coupled with the complete cooperation and assistance of the pastors of the parishes involved, provided the inspiration which got the program off to a flying start.

To Establish Ratings The communion breakfast and the outing will be annual events. The club now' feels it is on sufficiently firm ground to de­ velop an Altar Boy Award. In determining the boys entitled to the awards, the rating of the priest directing altar boy activi­ ties in each parish will«:ount 50 per cent, and scores on c()mpeti­ tive examinations based on ma­ terial sup'plied by, Serra Inter­ national will count 50 per ~lmt. The Most Reverend Bishop has graciously agreed to: present the awards at an evenin~ Mass t~ be held on some week ,day In May. This Mass will include the' an­ nual corporate C~mn:'l,lnion and will be followed by'a communion' supper.

Considerable credit for the

success of the program so far

.281,322 Catholics in Capital Archdiocese

By Henry Michael

By Rt. Rev. l\'Isgr: John S. Kennedy Father George L. Kane haS edited a series of popular ,books in which priests" nuns, and religious brothers have 'supplied brief 'accounts of their respective vocations. He now turns to a wider field, and in Lay Workers' for Christ (Newman. $3), has~athered vout' Life and woven them to­ autobiographical sketches by gether in a small book called 19 people who have given Letters from a Saint (Holt. 'their lives to some form of $2.50). The merit of this work is ·the lay apostolate. This readable , ,volume should show many thou­ . san d s _ one 'hopes, millions _ how ,to use their s't a t ion :and c i I' C U m­ stances to bring Christ 'to the world. Some of the contributors are 'f'a mo u s; the 'names of others are less famil­ · iar. Some are converts; others have been Cath­ olics from infallcy. But all have in common a strong sense of vocation and arqent' enthusiasm 'for apostolic work. David Goldstein spent decades' .going up and down the country · conducting open air meetings in 'which he presented the truths of the' Catholic religion to people ,who either knew nothing of them, or had fantastic misconceptions of them. Mary Ellen Kelly, on the other hand, is a total invalid who, from her home; has organ­ 'ized and carries on the League , of Shut-In Sodalists, which helps people'in a like situation conse- _ · crate their sufferings and offer

that it may well give their first taste of the saint's inimitable wisdom to people who' would never think of reading one orhis bOOKS through. Having sampled and enjoyed the passages con~ tained in these pages, they will undoubtedly want more. ' . More is provided in -A Diary of Meditations' (Regenery $4.75). Dom Cuthbert Smith, O.S.B., the editor, has culled short sections of the Introduction to a Devout Life and the Treatise on the Love of God (more from the second ~han froni the ,first), and ap­ pointed one for each day of the yea'r. This provides not only a much fuller acquaintance withl the writings of St. Francis de Sales, but, encourages a daily bit of spiritual reading and, one hopes, meditation. Progress in holiness is impos­ sible without prayer. The latest English translation of a book by Monsignor Romano Guardini is Prayer in Practice, (Pantheon. $3.50). This is no primer: that is, itrequires seriou~, sustained at­ tention. ()n Personal Prayer It

BALTIMORE (NC) -An em­ phasis on Catholic education haS brought about a plentiful har­ vest of religious vocations in a section of Tanganyika, Africa, according to a veteran mission­ ary priest who is Visiting here. ' Holy Ghost Father Joseph G. ,Noppinger, Yicar General of the Moshi diocese in Tanganyika, said the vocations "are so plenti­ -ful that we do not have the room for many more applicants." "Already we have 24 native priestS and 120 professed nuns," he related. "This has been ac­ ,complished, of course, through an emphasis on Catholic educa­ tion. We have some 11 high schools, 75 grade schools, one senior high school ant" two teachers' training colleges. This may' sound .ike quite a lot for a misSion area but it still isn't enough to m,eet the needs of the -.people."
