327 children from foreign coun­ tries with U.S. couples during the past year. This figure brings to 5,216 the number of children resettled by the committee in the U.S. from 1946 to the present, according to its annual report. Twenty­ fi.ve nationalities are represented in the 17-year total. "Thi~ program of the Ameri­ can Bishops has made it possible for thousands of children to en­ joy the· happiness of a normal home life through adoption," the report stated. Special Emphasis At present, it said, the com­ mittee has 264 children on re':' ferral to various agencies in the U.S. for adoptive placement. Of these 112 have been matched with families and are expected to arrive in the near future . The report gave special em­ phasis to the effort to place Oriental orphans in U.S. homes. It said the Catholic Committee for Refugees conducted a special publicity campaign earlier this year with this end in view. From Feb. 1 to Sept. 30 88 Oriental children were placed in U.S. homes as a result of thi. campaign, the report said.

Fr. Cronin Urges Forceful Church Ac·tion

NEW YORK (NC)-A Catho­ lic ilGcial" action l-eader called here for forceful action by the churehes. to cope with a new aali ominous development in the civil rights field. Father John F. Cronin, S.S., assistant director of the Social Action Department, National Catholic Welfare Conference, warned of a recent "new note" intbe struggle for equal rights. "We now hear of resentment and obstruction in areas of our. nation hitherto not associated with racial discrimination and prejudice," Father Cronin said. "There is talk that northern white Americans are rebelling a~inst integrated housing and lIChooling," he added. "Many ex_ press fears that the Negro strug­ gle for job opportunity may en­ danger the jobs of those already working. There is the reported sentiment that civil rights pres­ sures have been too intense, that the Negro and his friends are seeking to go too far too soon." Fight Must Continue Father Cronin said there can be "but one response from or­ ganized religion in the United States: the fight for justice must go on * * • Here if anywhere lealiership must be strong, de­ cisive and uncompromising in principle."

The Crime of Silence

Continued from Pete One 1IDity by fervent ~ , ex8laoo

The head of the National Catholic Youth Organization Federation,' speaking 'to Catholic youth in convention in New York last week, lashed out against "I-don't-care-ism" as "perhaps the most general and widely accepted 'ism' of the American people at the present." People are just too complacent over affairs of both country and Church. They do not feel the pressure to become wholly committed and actively involved in making the world - their own world - safer for democracy or more mindful of God. These are the people who are not evil, not actively en­ gaged in advocating the overthrow of the country or the abolishment of the Ten Commandments. Their crime is that of doing nothing. This reflection brings to mind haunting words spoken at the giant March on Washington of a few months ago, words spoken by Rabbi J oachin Prinz, President of the American Jewish Congress, who said that the great crime involved in the persecution of the Jewish people by Hitler was the crime of silence. People who knew what was going on let it happen. The fear of committing the crime of silence should serve as a spur for greater personal involvement for God and country.

The Person Counts . Officials in the Soviet Union expressed surprise and astonishment at the protests that came from America over the jailing of a Yale professor.

ROME (NC) - Almost 30 million people in the world had sufficient food in 1968 because of the distribution

"Christ was a great poet and a great dramatist." With this assertion John Julian

Ryan, author and professor of English at St. Anselm College, Manchester, N.H., ope.ned

a discussion of the Bible as literature before the literature department of Fall RIver cmCAGO (NC)-Father Catholic Woman's Club. The lecturer went on to explain that in his opinion 80 per cent Thurston N. Davis, S.J., edi. of the Bible is either fiction

of surplus food con due ted the relief organization of U.S. Cathollcs. This was only one ot' many Items reported to American bishops meeting in Rome by Bishop Edward E. Swanstrom, executive director of Catholic Relief Services-National Catho­ lic Welfare Conference. Bishop Swanstrom reported that in the 12 months ending Sept. 30 of this year, the foreign relief and resettlement programs of Catholic Relief Services had a value of '176,525,973. Clothin&, Appeal Foodstuffs donated by the U.S. government and distributed by CRS as a gift of the American

people had a value of $104,6Q6,­

654, he said. '"he government,. he added, must be credited with about $26.5 million in ocean­ freight payments. Bishop Swanstrom emphasized that CRS activities went far be­ ,yond the distribution of food. 'Fhe 1962 Thanksgiving clothing appeal, for example, resulted. in a series of shipments totalIng . 17.5 million pounds of clothing, blankets, bedding and shoelJ. He said this item alone bas a value of $22 million. "But," Bishop Swanstrom added "one cannot overempha­ me it~ value to the poor in such J?laces as Latin America, Africa and the Far East, where the goods far exceed in 'value the estimate we place upon tl1em .. the United States." . Startin&' Point The sup ply i n g of food, Clothing and medicine to those in greatest need was only a basic .tarting point, Bishop Swan­ .trom noted: "These programs are not only helping to establish and strengh­ ten sound social welfare organi­ IIations," he said, "but are stimu­ lating and lJUpporting the de­ velopment of a continually in­ creasing number of self-help, projects for the social and econo­ mic betterment of large number. of people." -Although their emphasis fa basically that of welfare assist- ' pee, many of the programs have le1"Ved to increase and strengh­ Gl... education and health agen­ des, particularly as r.egards ele­ mentary schools, dispensaries, elinics and hospitals." throu~h

" ""ty Rabbi HIts atlvi S· cene Opposition LOS ANGELES (NC)-A past chairman of the B'na! B'rith Anti-Defamation League h a • criticized the League for its opposition to erection of a Nativity IICene on city property. Rabbi Edgar F. Magnin said "'many Jewish people are not ill agreement with the League an,d other organizations that are too frequently objecting, under the lUise of separation of Church and State, to a displa7 of reliaious customs." Earlier City Attorney Rogel~ Arnebergh issued an opinion upholding the legality of tho Nativity scene in the historic old Plaza here. Rabbi Magnin, past grand. president of the area B'na! B'rith and past chairman of ita: Anti-Defamation League, said he "cannot comprehend how a Nativity scene down in the Plaza • any interference with Churdl and State or a threat to &D7body's liberty,"Our real enemy," he. added. ""Is atheistic materialism and DOl each other."

fiction is used to present facts, "a unique situation for which we are not prepared." He characterized Christ as a master poet, reading some of His words in Hebrew to demon­ strate their rhyming quality and adherence to the stress pattern of Hebrew poetry. "The proper approach to the Bible," said Mr. Ryan, "is one of reverence. Reading it should

lead to prayer, and should make the reader feel gratitude, and the desire to praise God and to increase in the virtues of faith, hope and charity." His hearers, said the speaker, should approach the Bible as something that will lead to such action - an approach quite dif­ ferent from that made to secular literature. 'Experience of Delight' "This doesn't mean," he de­ clared, "that the Bible doesn't give the experience of delight other literature can give, but it should cause its reader to glide, almost imperceptibly, from the experience of delight to· the ex­ perience of prayer." The words to express thi,

prayer are also supplied by the Bible, said Mr. Ryan, recom­ mending the Psalms, our Lord', own prayer, as ideal for Chris­ tian worship. "You can read of some great action of Godin the Bible, then express your gratitude for its meaning in your own life by an appropriate psalm." Gives Examples Giving examples of meaning­ ful sections of the Bible, he said the Canticle of Canticles is one of the great love stories but its deeper meaning i8 that it's a ~tremendous allegory" of loye between God and the eoul. It should make the reader feel hi, own love from God more in­ tensely. The Book of Osee, said Mr. Ryan, relates the story of a man who continued to love his faith­ tess wife lespite her frequent betrayals. "It suggests that pat­ tern of God's love for man." AU our Lord's words, recorded in the Go s pel S, noted the speaker, have been spoken aloud and found to take only two hour. . to repeat, "but none was said lightly. Each had an Important place in His life and in the tremendous sequence of events it. involved." What our Lord said was im­ portant in relation to what He was doing at the time He said it, and in relation to the whole history of Israel, declared Mr. Ryan. His words must be under­ stood for their implications as well as their surface meanings. Our Lord didn't explain His parables, said the speaker, be­ cause He wanted people to "get the point" for themselves. '111e7 may seem like simple stories, but they have many levels of meaning. The parable of the prodigal son, for instance, bas at least four possible interpretations: as a story; as an allegory of the grace given each man by God; as pre­ senting a moral; as telling us about the next world, to which all penitent sinners are welcome. The whole of the Bible JDa7 not be great literature, admitted Mr. Ryan, but this too Us pur­ . ·poseful. "If parts of the Bible were too good u literature, we might be tempted to rest in ap.. preciating them as such and not ~ go beyond them.-

ADDRESSES CATHOLIC CLUB: Fall River Catholic Woman's Club members hear John Julian Ryan in address on Bible as. literature. From left, Mrs. Joseph T. Canniff, chairman of club's literature department; Mrs. Anthony J. Geary, president; Mr. Ryan. Returning to the tlOncept of Christ as a poet, Mr. Ryan Said "We read poets to try to get by inference what they mean - not as if we were reading directions on how to polish our shoes. The same is true of the words of our Lord." Speaking again of the Psalms, be noted that "they are the only poetry that loses little in trans­ lation." He closed by suggesting Bible readings to complement the seasOns of the liturgical year, saying that Genesis may be read during the Septuagesima period; Exodus in Lent; Jeremias and the Servant Songs from Isaias in Passiontide; Acts, the Apocalypse

Housing Rights OLYMPIA (NC) - Open housing is a natural right but it must be supported by law, a priest told the Washington State Board Against Discrimination here. Father Jerome Toner, O.S.B., charter member of the board, declared: "Open housing, the right of every human being to buy, rent or lease property with­ out discrimination because of race, color, creed or national origin, is a natural moral and constitutional right of every person. "But that right cannot be ex­ ercised in the United States without state or Federal statute positively granting such a right with adequate sanction."

Mr. Ryan arid his wife, Mary Perkins Ryan, have long been active in the National· Catholic Liturgical Conference, with Mrs. Ryan writing many books and pamphlets in the field. Mr. Ryan has published two books on edu­ cation and two work. in the field of literary criticism are due for publication next year. English Experiment

of non-Catholics toward Catho­ lics. "Two Johns"-President Ken­ nedy and the late Pope John XXIn - "have changed the public face of Catholicism in the eontemporary world," Father Davis told the 35th annual meet­ ing )f the National Conference of Cristians and Jews.

While Pope John and the ecu­ menical c 0 U n c i I have been bringing about an updating of the Church, he' said, Mr. Ken- . nedy's actions as President have -lICotched the old Protestant worry that a Catholic in the White House would bring the pope in by underground fr<>m Rome." Formerly, the Jesuit editor said, "because undeniable road­ blocks of prejudice stood against them, Catholics did not feel en­ tirely welcome in the over­ whelmingly Protestant cultural milieu of this country. "That day has passed. We Catholics should now recognize its passing and live up to the obUgations. that this change ~ atmosphere imposes upon us." Jewish Relations

Turning to Catholic-Jewish relations, Father Davis expressed the belief that "Catholics have some way yet to go in their ef­ fort to compr.ehend and more deeply sympathize with tIM .Tewillh community." He said Catholics and other Christians should be more vocal in protesting anti-Semitism, in­ cluding the persecution of Jew. in the Soviet Union. He said it is "most unfair" to blame all Jews for "the cru­ sading efforts of a few indivi­ duals and organizations that have been so promment in the fight against prayer and Bibl. reading in the public schools."

At St. Anselm's he is current­ 17 experimenting with what he can. a "quadriplex tutorial qstem" with freshman English students. The boy. meet with .him weekly in group. of three or four for a period of an hour, thus enjoying what amounts to a pri­ Tate tutoring session ill English composition. Mr. Ryan plans to spend the entire freshman year teaching expository w r i tin g. "The students will learn to do .one thing well," he says firmly.

The Fall River Catholic Guild for the Blind will meet in the Sacred Heart School this coming Sunday, Nov. 24, following Ro­ sary and Benediction which will take p~ace at 2:15 in Sacred Heart Church.

The Cardinal stressed that the whole Church had been told by Christ to be the light of the world and the salt of the earth. "But how can the world ·be illu­ minated," he said, "and how can the wisdom of Christianity per­ meate all peoples of the earth, without the apostolate of the laity?" The apostolate, he said, '"il an obligation incumbent upon good laymen in virtue of their baptism, by which they became Christians, and in virtue of their Confirmation, by which they were enrolled in the army of Christ." He said ''this most noble obligation becomes in many in­ stances a sacred right." . Needs Harmony Because the Church is an hier­ archical society, the Cardinal declared, "it is clear that the apostolate of the laity must be carried on always in harmony wit h legitimate ecclesiastical authority."

Two Views on Method of Treatment Of Blessed Virgin Mary Schema ROME (D W ) - Archbishop Costantino Stella, 62, head of L'Aquila Archdiocese, stated the split in voting on the schema' of the "Blessed Virgin, Mother of the Church," does not indicate discord among Council Fathers on the doctrine and dignity of the Virgin, but is only a sign of . disagreement over the method of treatment to be given to the schema. Archbishop Stella was one of 1074 Council Fathers who voted in favor of keeping the tract on the Blessed Virgin Mary separate from that of the Church, a position which came only 23 votes short of being carried. The tract or schema will now be in"'corporated in its entirety all Chapter Six of the Schema on the Church. Stress Position

Minister Lauds Popes' Efforts WASHINGTON (NC) A Protestant miJlister said her4~ that the late Pope John XXIII and Pope Paul VI helped creatl! a "beautiful climate of friendli­ ness" toward Protestant and other non-Catholics. Dr. David Colwell, president of the Council of Churches 01: the Greater Capital Area, told some 500 Catholics at a luncheon that he hopes the Second Vati­ ean Council will foster "giant mides" toward ehurch reunion. He said Pope John and Pope Paul have led the way in Cath­ olic "renewal, rebirth and re­ form."

meant by 'faith sense,' a topic he has discussed at the Seco.n..-d Vatican Council. He said: "The supreme teaching autho­ rity of the Church has never treated of 'faith sense' directly or explicitly but it might well be considered part of the theo­ logical foundation for the col­ laboration of the laity in the apostolate of the Church." Supernatural Gift Bishop Cail'tero pointed out that just as in the natural order we speak of "common sense" and of ,things being the result of common sense, thus in the super­ natural order of revealed truth a ''faith' sense," or "faith in­ stinct," or 'faith intuition," 18 'at work. He called this' "faith' sense" a supernatural giftcomhig from ~e' Holy Spirit and found in the 'people of God considered either in their collegiality or indivi,;, dually, bE! they' bishops; priests, 'religious, or laity. The function of this 'faith sense', Bishop Cantero 'said, "is to serve as a kind of 'truth in­ stinct' in matters of faith and moral, by avoiding eriors, by . making errors in matters of faith recongizable, and by examining 'the truths of faith more pro­ foundly and applying them more' readily in the life of the faith­ ful. 'Taste for Truths , Bishop Cantero believes that 'faith sense' being subject to special gifts received from Holy Spirit did not operate the same 'way in, everyone. "It might therefore prove lellll effective in a thefore prove than in certain other members of the Church, like lI8ints and founders 'of reli­ gious, orders," he, asserted. A!! a result of this 'faith sense,' he ~d members of the Church would be able to acquire a more profound understanding and in­ tuition regarding matters of faith,would get a sort of 'taste' for the truths of faith, and would even be enabled to discover truths still hidden in the collec­ tion of truths revealed by God,. The Bishop declared this 'faith sense' would heJp repair the divorce so evident between the sacred and profane sciences, would aid in the cultural apos­ tolate of the laity, would help promote dialogue among profes­ sors of State and Church uni­ versities, and 'would guarantee that "the public opinion" of the Church itself would be given due consideration. Modern Life ' Bishop Cantero fee III that through the help of this 'faith sense': new truths would be un­ covered, or would be more pro­ foundly perceived, and the Church would be able to propose these truths more accurately and apply them more fittingly and thoroughly to the exigencies of modern Christian life.

IN ROME: The Most Rev­ erend Bishop is shown en­ tering St. Peter's on his re­ turn to Rome after a brief interlude in the Diocese. He, -will remain until this session :of Council ends next month.

The Archbishop of L'Aquila pointed out that he favored separate treatment of the Blessed Virgin schema for several reasons. "First of all, it would be a more scientific approach to give

separate treatment· to such a vast theme," he said. "Separate treatment, at least in my opinion, would also give more external importance to the schema." He noted that Church Fathers, as the history of Patrology shows, have always given the Virgin Marya unique position in their writings. "Treating Mariology as a separate schema would be in line with this tradition," he assei-ted. "As a unique member

of the ChUrch, the Madonna should also get unique treatment through an independent

schema." .Those "Yho voted for inclusion of the Blessed Virgin schema in 'the schema on the Church, the Archbishop said, ,believed they

would in this .way place more

stress on the position of the

Virgin Mary in the structure of

the Mystical Body.

Greater Import

Archbishop Stella stressed the

fact that the two currents of

th9ught manifest in the voting

"concerned only two different

ways or methods of giving due importance to the Blessed Vir­ gin, neither of which detracted in any way from her dignity or

prerogatives;" ,

He said that "each of the two

schools of thought was convinced

that its method was the one

which gave more stress and

hence more importance to the

position which the Blessed Vir­

gin has in the Church."

Even from the voting itself,

the Archbishop feels "with'"the

majority being carried by only 17 votes, you ean see that 'the Council Fathers as a body were

hesitant or even undecided as ,.

to which of the two methods of

treatment would give more im­ portance to the Virgin's role."

Role in Church

The schema on the Blessed

Virgin will now be discussed in

the Council Hall, Archbishop

Stella said, "and from the dis­

eussion there will certainly

emerge a convergence of both

method and doctrine, which will

have the common objective of

making the faithful better un­

derstand the function which the

'Blessed Virgin Mary has in the

life of the Church today."

Thanksgiving Award For 'Hope ' Director DUBUQUE (NC) - Dr. Wil­ Dam B. Walsh, director of Pro­ ject HOPE, will receive the first annual Thanksgiving Award of Clarke College at a convocation bere in Iowa next Tuesday. Tohe award has been estab­ Bahed to honor an American "'whose service to the country and its citizens merits distinc­ tion." Project HOPE is a privately JlUPport~d pro g ram bringing medical care and training to persons in underdeveloped re­ gions. In 1961 the hospital ship HOPE visited 11 ports in South­ east Asia. From May, 1962, to June, 1963, it was stationed at Trujillo, Peru. Dr. Walsh is a professor at the Georgetown Un­ iversity medical school, Wash­ iDaton, D.C.

constructed, it is going to be built by laymen. This is not work that can be done by priests." . "It is my opinion," Msgr. Kelly continued "that single Catholics are not carrying their weight in the lay apostolate. Perhaps my day-to-day experience with fam_ ily groups biases my judgment, but my impression is that the identifiable American lay apos­ tles are more often married than single. This should not be." More and Better He said, however, that 'he wa1, not calling "for the apostolic involvement of the single juSI; because they are single or Cath.. olic." "It takes more than a Catholie family background or a Catholif: college education to provide the lay leadership we need," he said. "To undertake apostolic work in the world, you must have proper motivation, spiritual ;for­ mation, technical skills and th,~ ability to work effectively with others." "What we need then," he con­ cluded, "is more and better Catholic action groups of sin~le people."

Pope Lauds Family' Rosary Crusade NEW YORK (NC) - Pope Paul VI has praised the Family Rosary Crusade for its wide­ spread i n flu e n c e since its founding in 1942. He said in a message to Father Patrick P e y ton, C.S.C., the crusade's founder and director: "Weare pleased to note that i,n the past 21 years the Family Rosary Crusade has carried the message of family prayer to the peoples of 32 countries, bringing together approximately 20 mil­ lion persons. "To achieve the lofty ailll8 of the crusade, you and your t81­ ented collaborators have used the mass media of communica­ tions effectively, an'S the 15 films and radio series that tell the story of the 15 mysteries of the Rosary are indeed worthy of praise."

questioned counsel for both sides at a hearing by the state's high­ est eourt on Connecticut's 84­ year-old birth cc:mtrol law. Chief Justice King presided at the hearing in the state Supreme Court of Errors on an appeal by two officials of the Planned Par­ enthood Association. Mrs. EstelieT. Griswold and Dr. C. Lee Bu.xton of New Haven are appealing their con­ viction on Jan. 2, 1962, on charges of advising married women on the use of contracep­ tives. Each was fined $100 in New Haven Circuit Court. This is the fourth time in less than a quarter of: a century that the birth control statute has come before the state's highest court. The law has been upheld on all three prior ocasions. The Chief JUHtice raised the question of the law's reasonable­ ness when he noted the difficulty of enforcing a law that prohibits the use of contraceptives. He said the test of reasunableness eould be used in declaring a law unconstitutional. 'Dea.d 'WorcJ8' The two appellants were acting director and medical di­ rector, respectively, of the Planned Parenthood Center in New Haven. The center opened Nov. 1, 1961, and closed 10 day. later with the arrest of Mrs. Griswold and Dr. Buxton. Five months earlier the U.S. Supreme Court had declined to issue a ruling on the birth con­ trol statute on 1;he grounds that no one had been jailed or fined for violating it and that, since the law was generally disre­ garded, it consisted of mere "dead words." The present challenge of the statute's eonstitutionalit,. differ. from its predeceuors in that it ia the first time an actual criminal conviction under the law hu come before thl! Supreme CAlurt of Errors. After hearing arguments, the court continued the case until Tuesday, Dec. 3.

THE ANCHOR-Diocese of Fall River-Thurs. Nov. 21,1963

I Council Debates Nat~oll1al Conferences, Size of Dioceses By Rev. Edward J. Mitchell After last week's squally debate on the Roman Curia, a relative calm has settled over the preceedings of Vati­ can Council II. This week the Fathers discussed, among other things, the re­ tirement of bishops, nation­ al episcopal conferences, and the c rea t ion and division of dioceses. In the total picture of the Council, it was a week of capital impor­ tance. The second chapter of the draft, which deals in general with Coadjutor and Auxiliary Bishops, lays down the principle that residential bishops should resign their sees at the age of 75. One of the most telling arguments in favor of this proposal was made by Arch­ bishop Corrado Mingo of Mon­ reale, Italy. "It is true that there are many men who can still rule il diocese after the age of 75," admitted the Archbishop, "but there are many more men who cannot. Church law obliges pas­ tors to give up their duties when they become incapacitated, and it will be useless for bishops to try to urge the observance of this law unless they first give the example. This law is called for by the salvation of souls. If a Shepherd is under obligation to give his life for his sheep, with still greater reason is he bOund to give up his office." Disagreement In sharp disagreement was the Archbishop of Malta, Michael Gonzi, who warned that "im­ posing an obligatory retirement age on bishops would put them in the same category as civil ser­ vice officials. This would be an affront to their dignity. Nothing should be done to oblige a bish­ op to server the bonds uniting him with his beloved diocese." Many Fathers expressed fear that the retired bishops would suffer want in their retirement. They cautioned that, while it.iI true that bishops from wealthy dioceses may have saved enough to see them through their final years, bishops from poorer re­ gions face a bleaker prospect. Perhaps this threat to security ill the reason why a number of

Council Fathers are presently supporting the idea voiced by Fernando Cardinal Cento, 80, who heads one of the Roman tribunals. He has suggested a worldwide bishops' fund to en­ abl n bishops to resign at the age 'of 75. With the creation of such a fund, the bishops could look forward to enough to live on in their old age and not feel they have to cling to their dioceses simply for material support. Responding to the argument that bishops are "married" to their dioceses and therefore could not separate through re­ tirement, Leo Joseph Cardinal Suenens replied that "the Coun­ cil is full of 'divorced' bishops, that is, bishops who have been transferred from one diocese to another." National Conferences Cardinal Suenens called for a precept with binding force, and warned that a pious exhortation would be next to useless. The needs of a diocese demand a man's full strength, he said, and . "the accelerated rhythm of modern life calls for youthful vigor and a ~ung mind and heart. Old age puts a gap be­ tween the bishop and the world in which he lives, as also be­ tween him and his clergy. In governmental, university, in­ dustrial, and diplomatic circles a retirement age is mandatory." What are the chances of a mandatorY retirement age being approved by the Council? "Prob­ ably very small," confided a Vatican observer this week. "De­ spite the schema and the oratory, the term of a bishop's reign will probably continue to have an open end." The central issue of the week, however, was the debate on na­ tional conferences of bishops. This is a key part of the Coun­ cil'!! masterplan to decentralize the a d min is t r a ti 0 n of the Church. At present there are 47 na­ tional and regional' episcopal conferences around the world. While they bring national groups of bishops together, their deci­ sions are not binding on the pre­ lates. The schema would make such decisions mandatory under certain circumstances, thereby enabling bishops to deal directly through them with the Pope. At present bishops must deal in­ dividually through the Roman Curia.

~

Cardinal Meyer, while rullnl out binding power for all the decisions of an episcopal con­ ference, did advocate leaving the door open for decisions that would be referred to it by the Holy Father. Such obligation OIl the individual bishops, he coun­ sels, should be hnposec! only when this is necessary to fulfill the wishes of the Supreme Authority in the Church. The Council this week also got around to debate the size of dioceses. One prelate pro­ posed that the maximum number of Catholics should be 500,000, and the min i !l1 u m 200,000. (There are about :!50,000 Catho­ lics in the Fall Rivf~r Diocese.) Key Schema It was brought to the attention of the bishops that some dioceses are so small that they are con­ stantly threatened with a critical shortage of vocatio::ls, and there­ fore cannot suitably provide for the proper administration of • FRIENDS MEET: O·utside of St. Peter's in Rome after their dioceses. .

He maintained that "juri­ dical authority is not necessar,. to enable a Conference to pro­ vide for national needs." Joseph Elmer Cardinal Ritter, on the other hand, disagreed with the idea of a non-binding conference and stated that "at­ tributing juridical binding force to the decisions of these confer­ ences seems necessary," His rea­ soning was' this: unanimity 18 required to achieve a purpose and to provide support for in­ dividual bishops not only in things directly concerned with the salvation of souls but also in regard to social and moral prob­ lems.

Integration Required for Federal Aid Court Insists Private Hospitals Desegregate RICHMOND (NC) - A Fed­ eral court ,has ruled that private hospitals seeking Federal con­ struction funds must desegre-. gate their facilities. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit held that a "separate but equal" provision of the Hill-Burton hospita~ con­ struction act violates the equal protection provisions of the 5th and 14th Amendments to the Federal Constitution. The "separate but equal" pro­ vision has permitted segrated private hospitals to receive Hill­ Burton funds so long as equal hospital facilities are available for both races in the same area. The Court of Appeals decision overrule~ a North Carolina court

and also went counter to other rulings in state and Federal courts. The case involved two private hospitals in Greensboro, N.C. It was brought by a group of Negroes aided by the NationaI Association for the Advancement of Colored People. The Justice Department intervened in the case on behalf of the Negroes.

Interfaith Dialogue CHICAGO (NC) - Four ex­ ponents of interfaith COOperEl­ tion took part in a dialogue on the ecumenical movement at a meeting here Sunday. Partici­ pating were Father Thurston N. Davis, S.J., editor - in _ chie,f, America magazine; Dr. Martin E. Marty, associate editor, Chris­ tian Century; Rev. John S. R.)­ manides, professor of theology, Holy Cross Orthodox Theolog;i­ cal School; and Dr. Samu.el Sandmel, provost of HebrElw Union College.

Chief Judge Simon E. Sobe­ loff, speaking for a three-man majority of the five-member court, stressed the involvement of the state and Federal govern­ ments in the policies of the pri­ vate hospitals under the Hill­ Burton program. The two dissenting judges said a Federal gra~t is a gift and does not give the government the right to exercise control over the hospitals' policies. The 1946 Hill-Burton program has been used to build more than Z,QOO hospitals and other medical facilities in the South. It is charged that many practice segregation either by excluding Negroes or putting them in "­ separate wards.

Racist Unit CHICAGO (NC) - The U.S. Court of Appeals for the seventh Circuit has ruled the Black Mus­ lim movement is a "racist organ­ ization" and not entitled to con­ stitutional guarantees of reli­ gious freedom.
