Bishops Warn Co'untry Faces Moral Decline Hierarchy in America Point Out Causes Of Sodal Evils .. WASHINGTON (NC)The U. S. Catholic Bishops have warned' of a national moral declin-e "unique" in,

the country's history and have called on Americans to renew their sense of personal, social PRICE lOe and international responsibility. $4.00 per Year The Bishops said in their 1961 annual statement that, "above all, the, Christian' today must have a profound sense of mission, which will cause him to bear witness to his religious faith and his moral convictions as the early Christians did, by deed and affirmation-even by death." "Such was St. Paul's program of action; such, too, was St. Augustine's," they said. "Like Paul, we face a world largely paganized. Like Augustine, we see the encroachment of barbarism. Like both, we must be dauntless in proclaiming • Christ." The complete text of the staiement was carried by the New Bedford Sunday Standard Times, the Fall River Herald News, and the New York Times, Sunday edition.

Bishops Press For Fair Play The Hierarchy of the United States reiterated their stand against discrimination in federal aid to Education. The Bishops said in a statement at the annual meeting in Washington: "The Bishops reaffirm their stand against any form of general Federal aid to education that discriminates against children a'ttending non - public schools." "In their judgment, the merits of a general Federal aid to education program ought to be determined by an objective study of need and of the possible effects of such aid on America's social structure and institutions." The Bishops further "unanimously appealed for justice and for an understanding recognition of the rights of such children to participate in any proposed program of aid."

Deplore Scientism, Godless Education And Secularism their lands to assist them," the •American hierarchy continued. The Bishops also appealed to Americans to exercise charity and justice in their approach to the problem of racial justice and "other issues which divide us." The statement, entitled "Unchanging Duty in a Changing World" hit out at numerous causes of the current moral decline. It specified: A false "scientism" that denies God and makes sport of the moral law." The mass communications media which ,have propagated a "pernicious cult of the 'image'" -the idea that "whether a thing is true is less important than the impression it creates." Popular education which by excluding religion has turned out "great numbers of young people almost completely devoid of religious belief and moral guidance." Secularism which seeks "the banishment of God from public and private life and the enthronement of human nature in His place." Turn to Page Two

determine whether it is a "partisan political group" or an academic study club. Father Joseph L. Lennon, a.p., dean bf the college, has asked the Student Congress to determine whether the new Conservtaive Club is "a label for a Republican political club in support of 'Goldwater for President.' " Pending clarification of the Conservative Club's position, he said in a memorandum, he does "not deem it advisable" to present the new group's constitution to the college committee on administration for its consideration. Approved by this committee is required for any extracurricular organization at the college, which is conducted by the Dominican Fathers. Father Lennon said the college's opposition to campus political clubs does not indicate "disinterest in, or indifference

to, the political situation in the United States."

Catholic Growth Nea II'ly Double Average foEl' AU NEW YORK (NC) ~ The number of U. S. Catholics grew last year at almost twice the growth rate for all U.

By contrast, the total membership of all U.

He said the' college years should be for a student not merely a period of "preparation" for future political and social action, "but should be a time for actively engaging the interests of students in social, economie and political problems." He said it has been "unfortunately true for too long" that American college students have been largely "illiterate" and "relatively unconcerned" about politics. "If the proposed Conservative Club is nothing more than II partisan political group, then I do not deem it advisable to present it to the committee on administration for final consideration," Father Lennon said. "If, on the other hand, it is concerned chiefly with an analysis and an understanding of tho history, progress and principles of the conservative tradition in America, then I can see where it might be academically beneficial to the students who participato in this extracurricul~r activity,Father Lennon said.

Lack Consistent Doctrine for School Aid MINNEAPOLIS (NC) The U.S. Supreme Court is unprepared to rule consistently in cases involving the issue of public support for private schools, a priest-lawyer said here. Father Thomas McDonough declared that the court "still is in search of a doctrine that will give clear and constant meaning to the first amendment religion clauses." "The time may not be opportune to confront it with a difficult case at the moment," he said. "But when the proper time does come, the court will have to interpret the First Amendment so it doesn't prevent· religious freedom by requiring the imposition of a secular education upon our children, or by enforcing a state monopoly that would make private education possibly only. for the wealthy." Father McDonough, chaplain at the University Qf Chicago Newman Center and holder of a law degree from the university, spoke here at the Newman Center at the University of Minn&-

He agreed that religious education in private schools is "outside the scope" of public support, but said there is no reason why such schools should not receive public assfstance for their secular educational activities. "No benefit can be given a child or a school because of religion, but neither can a benefit be denied just because the, child or school happens to be religious or irreligious," he said. Father McDonough advised Catholics to make it clear to non-Catholics tha"t' they are in , favor of the First Amendment's guarantees of religious liberty.

High School Athletic Association, a voluntary group which controls intermural high school athletics in this state. Father David Monahan, sports columnist for the Oklahoma Courier, diocesan newspaper, commented that the Catholic' schools are treated like "second class citizens." The latest attempt to amend the association's constitution to provide for the admission of four Catholic high schools-McGuin_ ness and St. Mary's of Oklahoma City, Kelley of Tulsa and St. Gregory's of Shawnee--was defeated by a 190-to-101 vote. Father Monahan, who also is athletic director of McGuinness High, observed "that the best course to follow is not one of negative selfpity nor that of belligerent indignation" but to come back next year "with 1Il little more emphasis on public relations and again ask for admission." He advised the school to keep renewing the admission request "until with gentle Christian insistence the inevitable happens and the door is opened."

Father Robert 1. Gannon, S.J., said this idea has created an impossible task for America's teachers. "The teacher has not fallen down on the job. The job has fallen down on the teacher," he declared. Belief that in a democracy everyone is entitled to as much education "as he may for any reason desire" is filling schools with students who have ne'ither the interest nor the capacity for advallcement, Father Gannon said. Compelled by Law "Private schools have admitted hopeless material because of tuition ,or the influence of parents. Public schools have been· compelled by law to keep a lot of sullen hulks around, whose only definite desire was to be elsewhere," he said. "If we were to find an adequate teaching staff for our eriormous student body, we should have to comb the entire earth. Real teachers are not born every day."

Hopelessness Another difficulty facing education is a "spirit of hopelessmiss" in an increasingly mechani~ed world, Father Gannon said. Scientific advances make man feel insignificant and pressure him to forget what is expected of him as "the center of the universe." , To counteract this "spirit of despair" we should remember that God has made us His sons and heirs, made us in His image," he said.

Alter of Cincinnati war ned here abou t faulty methods of pursuing Church unity and an erroneous understanding of its true nature. "To correct such false impressions and to set forth the true meaning of Christian unity may well be one 0: the chief objectives" of the coming Second Vatican Council, the Archbishop said at a Pontifical Mass in honor of thp. 80th birthday of Pope John. . '. Francis Cardinal Spellman, Archbishop of New York, offered the Mass in the great upper church of the National Shrine of file Immaculate Conception. More than 180 members of the hierarchy-here for the annual meeting of the U. S. Bishopswere present. In addition there were hundreds of priests and Religious in attendance. Esteem for Pope Archbishop Alter first called attention to the esteem in which Pope John is held by both Catholics and non-Catholics. He then' praised the Pope's "virtue of magnanimity" and stated: "The climax of his. hopes and aspirations is quite evidently the convocation of a General Council of the Church" "If there is anyone gift that will merit the approval of the Holy Father as he celebrates the anniversary of his birth," Archbishop Alter added, "it will be the generous cooperation of all ranks of the Mystical Body in making the council fruitful in its deliberations and effective in its results." He asserted that a primary objective of the Pope in convoking the ecumenical council "is to take advantage of the present favorable opportunity to advance the cause of Christian unity." Reflects Mind of Christ "This desire for Church unity cannot help but be a good desire," the Archbi!;hop continued, "for it reflects truly the mind of Christ. But even though it be II good, desire, the method of pursuing it may be faulty and the understanding of its nature quite erroneous. To correct such false impressions and to set forth the true meaning of Christian unity may well be one of the chief objectives of the coming General Council. "It must be made clear to our separated brethren that unity, to be genuine, must be unity of faith, of worship and of discipline. It is something which can never be created by human ingenuity." Archbishop Alter warned that there is "a false irenicism which seeks to dissolve vital differences of belief through compromise, and which often substitutes a mirage of unity for the reality." He added that "the charity of truth forbids encouragement of such an attitude." The council's immediate purpose, said the Archbishop, is not "to put into effect some previously negotiated agreement concerning a program of unity entered into with the dissident churches," but "to clarify before the world the true meaning of tlDity."

Fir§~ ChUlf<ch in New Bedford Be So~emnly Consecrated

St0 Lawrence To

.By Avis C. Roberts

Msgr. McKeon petitioned Bishop James E. Connolly for permission to have the church consecrated. The bishop acceded and on November 11, 1953, the bishop solemnly consecrated St. Lawrence Church, the first church in New Bedford to be so honored. Before the event there was a bustle of new improvements. The chimes in the tower were elec-· trified; the tower and facade of the church were pointed; . wrought iron railings were placed at each entrance to assist the aged; marble in the church was cleaned and repointed; the chapel was repainted; bronze crucifix, candle and altar rail gates were removed and refinished. Devout parishioners gave hew articles of church furnlshirigs at this time. They included new Mass vestments and albs, vases and altar cloths, new prie-dieu and a carved lectern with new microphone, a new processional cross with acolyte candlesticks, crucifix for the chapel and missals. A new bishop's throne and It carved Paschal candle stand were al90given to the church. In 1905 when Monsignor Smyth superintended extensive renovations to the church new altars were installed. The beautiful marble main altar was the gift of the late John Duff Sr. in memory of his wife. At the time of the consecration of the church, his sons, Mark M. Duff and the late John Duff Jr., restored the main altar to its original' grandeur. Visible Signs Visible signs of the church's consecration are the 12 consecration candlesticks which are permanently affixed to the interior walls of the church. An earlier historian noted, "consecration is a rite reserved to a bishop who, by the solemn anointing wHh holy chrism, dedicates the building to the service of God, thereby raising. it forever to the. higher order and rendering it a place in which the prayers of the faithful are more readily heard and favors Me more graciously granted by God." The anniversary of the consecration is· kept solemnly each year. This was the climax of the 140-year history of the first parish of the,Fall River Diocese. On the death of Msgr. McKeon, Msgr. Gerrard became rector of St. Lawrence's on June 6, 1956. Previously he had been rector of St. Mary's Cathedral. For Msgr. Gerrard hf.s return to New Bedford was a homecoming. A na,tive of th,it ~ity he was baptized. in St. James Church, attended St. Mary's School and was graduated in 1914 from Holy Family High School, the parish high school of St. Lawrence's where he is now pastor. He was consecrated a bishop March 19, 1959 in St.· Mary's Cathedra'l in the presence of, Richard Cardinal Cushing Arch- . bishop of Boston. Bishop Connolly was the consecrating prelate. .

Father Gregory Baum, O.S.B., professor of theology at St. Michael's College here, told· 11 group at the Catholic Information Center that "the Catholic looks upon the Jewish people in a special way, knowing there·is a special destiny waiting for them." "Catholics believe," said Fath'er Baum, :'that their Faith and the forms of their Church have come to them from the Jews, that the Jews are consequently thEHr 'brothers in a special way, and that even if they have not reached their ultimate destiny, they are not under a curse to an eternal punishment."

As auxiliary to Bishop Connolly, Bishop Gerrard assists him throughout the Diocese in carrying out the multiple duties of the Ordinary. Some of the duties that Bishop Gerrard may perform are those specific~lly requiring the powers of a Bishop. These are the ordination of seminarians to Minor Orders or to the Major Orders of SUbdiaconate, Diaconate and Priesthood. He also assists in the heavy Diocesan confirmation schedule that sees more than 5,000 young persons and adults receiving the Sacrament each year. Bishop Gerrard also assists at many parish and group celebrations, parish anniversaries and blessings of new buildings. As Vicar-General of the Diocese he holds ppwers of jurisdiction.

VATICAN CITY (NC) -Four hundred Capuchin friars had the honor of seeing a brother of theirs who died in 1890 proclaimed among the blessed in heaven. Father Innocent of Berzo, O.F.M.Cap., was solemnly beatified in S1. Peter's Basilica in ceremonies in which Pope John and 25 cardinals participated. Blessed Innocent was born Giovanni Scalvinoni in the Village of Niardo in the Italian Alps in 1844. He joined the Capuchin Order at the age of 30, seven years after he had become a priest. He became so well known for his chartiy, humility and penance that after his death on March 3, 1890, hundreds of people went to his bier at the Capuchin church in Bergamo and managed to take away relics of his habit and hair despite attempts by the friars and the police to' stop them.

St. Lawrence's parish continues to grow and prosper. It now has 5,000 members. There are 350 pupils in Holy Family High School; 450 children in Holy Family' Grammar School. There are 11 Sisters of Mercy on the high school faculty and 10 nuns and one laY teacher. on the grammar school roster.

The magazine prepared its summary by questioning school superintendents, college procurators and' building commissions in all U.s. dioceses.

Worthwhile Recipes Continued from Six eternal mercy. '.." they would begin. Some Catholics thought that God and the Church were much too merciful nnd in their overzealous .urgings, these Jansenists would Tather call Mary "the sweetness and hope of our life." But on it went and .the Church insisted on an honest, intelligent use ·of 'that prayer which had fired the devotion of centuries of Catholics. At Benediction Grlldually, the prayer became the night prayer of many lay people enrolled in different popular confraternities and guilds of the 13th Century. These devout Catholic Actionists would meet together in the evening and sing or recite a .hymn to Mary. Over the years, on particular feasts, they would' try to do something special during these evening services to rsolemnize the occasion. The practice of exposing the Blessed Sacrament during this service was thought an adequate way of making. a'gJ;eat solemnity. ' Then the "Salu.t" of the HaU, Holy Queen became the "Salut" of that ceremony we call today, Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. In 'most churcbes ofEurope, during this ceremo~y, there is .always fust 'thechan~g of the "Salve Regina" (or some other hymn to Our Lady in keep. ing with the occasion) and then the chanting of tbe solemn prayers and hymns in honor, of the Blessed Sacrament. We have something of this in the prac;tice of October Devotions, when' before the Blessed Sacrament, we pray to 'Our Lady. '1l'e~inates Offftce, Rosary'. The prayer has not suffered any great changes in the Catholic world; it has simply become in wlder and wider use. All priests pray it at least once a ,dl'(Y in terminating their Office and the layman is directed to end the recitation of the Rosary with the "Salve 'Regina" also. It Is as though the Church would have us cast last glance at Our Lady 'before we leave a good work or day and, with thanksgiving and hope .for the future, ,salute ,Our .Mother and Our Queen. Thanksgiving is a holiday particularly dear to Americans and to Catholics for it gives us the chance to Qpenly .express our most sincel'e'feelings. Just as the Pilgrims were happy and felt obliged. to thank ,God openly, so 'did the discoverer of our country. :It is .recorded .that the .sailors of Christopher Columbus taUght the Indians and together with them would recite and sing-the Salve Regina. , Next: Act lei!

It certainly isn't that they have everything, but that there are so many things they don't want-which is very admirable, but also very difficult for would-be gift givers. Books, however, are a happy solutipn, and likely to give pleasure to many more than the original recipient, especially when Father or Sister is one of a large community. The following suggestions are, of couse, nearly all as appropriate for the ever-increasing number of laymen with 8 taste for spiritual reading as they are for those in religious life. Universally acceptable is an attractive edition of the Bible, and this is exactly what Benziger Brothers has produced in the New American Catholic Edition of the Bible, with Confraternity of Christian Doctrine translation for the entire New Testament and as much of the Old Testament as is at present available (the first eight books and the seven Sapiential books), the remainder of the Old Testament being in the Douay version. A clothbound book with reasonably large-sized type, the edition is a comfortable size for reading and includes an interesting selection of photographs of the Holy Land. It is $3.45. A companion pocket-sized New Testament features many fullpage colored illustrations. Eespecially for Priests 'Especially for priests are "Liturgical Handbook for Holy Mass" by Rev. Johannes Baur (Newman, $2.95) and "Summary of Canon Law" by Rev. Emile Jombart, S.J. (Benziger, $4.50). Father Baur's book is intended for seminarians wishing to improve their understanding of the Mass and for priests needing a brief exposition of the rites of the Holy Sacrifice to assist them in explaining the mysteries of faith in catechism classes and from the pulpit. Father Jombart's summary briefly reviews the 2414 regulatons comprising the Code of Canon Law, giving explanations where needed. It might be useful to professional men such as doctors and lawyers as well as to priests. Looking Ahead Lent seems far away when one is preparing for Christmas, but yearly it surprises us by how quickly it is upon us once the


New Year is under way. No religious will object to having a little spiritual "ammunition" on hand in advance of the season, particularly when the ,ammunition-makers are the notable English spiritual writers Dom Hubert Van Zeller and' Father pavid Greenstock. Dom Hubert's "Approach to Calvary" (Sheed & Ward, ~2.95) is at the same time an essay on suffering and a series of meditations on the Stations of the Cross. Its primary purpose, say. the author" is to treat problema connected with pain as a whole:

why there has to be pain, how it justifies itself, what we are expeeted to do about it." Answers, as far as there can be answers, are found in the Passion of Christ. "Lenten Meditations" by Father Greenstock (Bruce, $2.50) is a brief reflection for each day of Lent, covering such SUbjects as acceptance of God's will, prayer, charity, and state of life. Father Greenstock "takes off" from each day's liturgy and specializes in pungent and thought-provoking queries and conclusions. Father Vann A new book by Father Gerald Vann, O.P. is an event in the world of Catholic letters. In "The Eagle's Word" (Harcourt, Brace. $4.50) the English Dominican studies the Gospel of John by means of presenting it first against the background of the Old Testament and imagery and folklore in general; then by interpreting and explaining the text itself. The wedding of Father Vann'. beautiful style and rich scholarship is, as always, happily rewarding to the reader. In "The Church and the Gospel" (Regnery, $6.50), Jean Guitton presents "an intellectual dialogue on the divergence of thought between minds of the Catholic and Protestant types." He calls his pages "a collection of views, ideas and perspectives, like the books of the ancients ,which were intended, to stimulate men to think for themselves." Subjects examined include contemporary difficulties with regard to the Church, the Gospel and the Church, the development of dogma and ritual, and "Catholicism in World Dimen.

Books by Father Trese, M,sgr. Knox Give Fresh Views of Spiritual, Life Father Leo Trese in the United States and Msgr. Ronald Knox in Englandeach is famous in the field of spiritual writng. Msgr.

" science" by Knox and "Sanctified in Truth" by Trese, each published by Sheed & Ward, each $3.50. For Priests Father Trese's book is addressed to priests, but can be read with profit by the laity, while Msgr. Knox's takes the form of a retreat. Both priests cover much the same ground, but with varying emphasis and accent. It is a rewarding experience to read the books one after the other. Beneath American slang and English catch-phrases there pulses in the pages of each the spirit of Christ. An example: On kindness: "If (the Christian) is a true disciple of his Master, he goes about doing good; the eyes of his fellowmen light up at his coming, and their tears embalm his. ~em-,


lnree for Those Hard to Please

Three books which may be just the right gift for one or another of those people who have everything are "Each His Own Tyrant" by Wingfield Hope (Sheed & Ward, $3.50); "And We the People" by Tim O'Neill (Kenedy, $4.50); and "Against the Goad" by James H. Mullen (Bruce, $3.95). Wingfield Hope's book explores the notion that childhood experiences are extremelY important in the fomation of the adult personality. She does this by means of two case histories, those of Alice and Hugh. Alice was neglected by her mother and grew up determined to win success in the business world and rule over others as she had been ruled. Hugh was over-protected by his widowed mother as a child and in his own marriage made life for himself and his wife miserable by his seemingly meaningless resistance to ordinary health precautions. In these fictional cases, both Alice and Hugh were helped in adult life by sympathetic counselors, Alice by a woman trained in psychology, Hugh by his wife. To Aid Understanding In "Love and Control" by Wingfield Hope says she has written her book to help readers Bishop Leon Joseph Suenens understand cases such as she (Newman, $3.25) the probdescribes, where the "tyrant lem of control of the sex child" dominates the adult.

"The Church: A Pictorial History" by Edward Rice (Farrar, Straus, $10) is the outgrowth of a series of articles in Jubilee magazine. By means of photographs, drawings, illuminations, paintings and murals the history of the Church is told, from the time of Peter to that of John XXIII. The author has used actual documents from each period of history, together with contemporary illustrations. Reproductions are consistently good and the text is clear and interesting. Inevitably this book will adorn many rectory and convent r arlors, but it deserves a better fate than that of being merely another object to be dusted. It should be moved from parlor into stUdy', from bookcase into the hands of the reader. It will be particularly useful for students and should do much to cheer up the frequently dry study of Church history.

Paul Malloy Book Diverting, Refreshing in Gloomy Time

God Love You By Most Rev. Fulton J. Sheen, D. D.

By Rt. Rev. Msgr. John S. Kennedy Gaity and wisdom are wonderfully intermingled in Paul Molloy's And Then There Were Eight (Doubleday. $3.95). The eight are the author's children, ranging, when the book was written, from 14 to 2. The oldest and youngest are boys, and the half-dozen There Were Eight is particularly in between are girls. The diverting and refreshing. And as author is a newspaperman, you smile or chuckle through its at present doing a TV col. pages, you are afforded, as well, not a few gleams of inspiration and a general feeling that traditional values are still operating rewardingly for those sagacious enough to appreciate and apply them. Expectant Mothers Mrs. Molloy, one is sure, never heard of the newly published The Catholic Guide to Expectant Motherhood (Random House. $3.95). Although she had not the need of such a book that some do, she undoubtedly would have profited by it. And she, in turn, could have helped the authors a bit. The authors are Monsignor George A. Kelly, director of the Family Life Bureau of the Archdiocese of New York; Dr. Robert J. Walsh, obstetrician and gynecologist at St. Vincent's Hospital, New York; Dr. A. J. Vignec, medical director of New York Foundling Hospital; and Dr. Robert P. Odenwald, professor of psychiatry at Catholic University. A knowledgeable line-up, that, and all the members are as articulate as they are seasoned in their specialties. They cover all aspects of the subject informatively and helpfullT. They are not dispensers of sugared pm. Ol' carbonated philosophy, but call on science and religion to instruct, reassure, and assist in a most practical way the woman who is carrying a child.

Secret of the Doubting Saint by Leonard Holton (Dodd, Mead. $3.95). The friend is, of course, Father Joseph Bredder, wkose prowess in solving murder mysteries 11M been demonstrated in two earlier novels. Father Bredder is &iill chaplain of the Convent of the HalT Innocents in Los Angeles. He bas not been given another assignment, despite hi. superiors' muttered misgivings about his involvrnent in detective work. And, since they haye left him on the job, he goes right Oil with his avocation. More puzzling than tile criminal goings-on is Father Bredder's literary taste. He is almost preternaturally busy, yet hu time (an4 stomach) for the complete works of Ethel M. Dell. This becomes the more incredible when we are told that Father Dredder scrupulously reports to the bishop every book purchase he-makes.

Despite the surname, Mr. Molloy is French Canadian, and his wife is also a Canadian but, lucky girl, boasted Kennedy as her maiden name. Mr. Mulloy gives a breezy and occasionally hilarious account of their meet~, courtship, marriage, and early struggles. If tile breezy manner sometimes becomes a bit racy, it should bother only the ultra-prudish. A newspaperman doesn't lead a sheltered existence exactly, and no more, it appears, does a woman. who marries one of the bl'eed. Fantastic Experlcll4le The Molloys thought their life was hectic even before the children came along, and to the objective observer theT seem to have been right in this judgment. There was the time, for eKampie, when they got a vast apartment rent-free, the onlT condition being that the owner's two nephews, college students, would continue to live in a portion of it. Marvelous luck, they felt, until they learned that the young men were, although amiable, the two most outrageously undisciplined I(lecimens in the hemisphere. But this fantastic experience was by no means a total loss. It convinced the Molloys of the Decessity of having order in the house when their family began crowing. Not Prussian represlion, of course, but reasonable regulations consistently enforced .in an atmosphere of love. Dell~htlul Entertainment Each child's arrival wu warmly welcomed. The parents regarded theit offspring as God's precious gift. They gave them affection and respect as human beings, but expected them W ob.eerve, and accommodate themselves to, the legitimate needs of all others 'in the household. Wanted, cherished, acquainted with the rules, and required to observe these, the children have been happy and have liven much happinell. . As Mr. Molloy relates, with an uncommonly discerning eye for cornie effect, the exploits Gf his crew, the conflicts and crUIe&, the misunderstandings and misadventures, as well as thei comparatively few times when all went smoothly and well, he gives the reader not only delightful entertainment (including some of the heartiest laughs to be set off by any book this year), but also a sense of sharing in Christian family life at almost its be$t.

The observance was arranged to complement in western PennI)'lvania the ceremonies in PGland commemorating the 1,OO9th anniversary of the conversion of the nation and its centuries of loyalty to the Church.

We deserve steel in our hands because of our greed, rivets in our flesh because of our prodigal wanderings, thorns on our browl because of our evil thoughts and a lance in our sides because of our trivial loves. But he took them all on Himself as if He deserved them. He willed them; He courted them; He asked for the bitter dregs of a cup we were to drink. He was our Victim! TIle paia eI a leper erawlia~ ..

This year's academic enrollment includes a freshman from Ecuador, a sophomore from Iran, and a freshman seminarian from Ireland. As the only Catholic coeducational college south of Boston, Stonehill serves a large number of communities in which the population is increasing rapidly. The suburban character of this area and tne already great number of public and parochial high schools hereabout indicate aD even greater demand for colle7 giate education than the nationaJ average.

He considers the part of the family and marriage in perpetuating the· Body and ends with a hopeful look at the Church Triumphant as she will be in heaven... Especially appropriate for teaching Sisters on the college level is' "Conversations with Cassandra" by Sister M. Madeleva, C.S.C. (Macmill~ $3.50). In bel' customary graceful style the noted educator and longtime president of St. Mary's College, Notre Dame, Ind., considers the subject of Christian education for women. . . She summarizes the goal of college for the Catholic girl: "Mary you are wise,· you are brave,' you are our world's fi.rst love, you are a woman. Gll'd every college graduate with the armor of your seven swords. Gird her to become that militant, that mercJful, that not· impossible she, a woman who is also • saint." Books on the Little Flower seem unending, and all are welcomed, as will be this new addition, "Spiritual Realism of St. Therese of Lisieux," by R. P. Victor de la Vierge, O.C.D. (Bruce, . $3.50). In the vol~me, the Carmelite author exammes the teachings of Therese and .her influence upon the souls she was espeCially to guide. Father Faber Father Faber is known to many only for his hymns, and to rather'fewer for his spiritual books as well. Now appears what the publishers .call a new l.andmark in Catholic biography, "Father Faber" by Ronald Chap'man (Newman, $5.95). It gathers together. much preyiously unpublished material and is particularly interesting for the glimpses it gives of Cardin'a! Newman. With the coming Ecumenical Council, any material on an approach to Catholic-Protestant ·understanding is more than welcome. In "Catholic Theology in Dialogue" by· Gustave Weigel, S.J. (Harper, $2.75) a noted Jesuit presents a series of lec- .

On the other hand, Stonehill encourages admissions from out of this area for, if the essence'of complete education is universality, then it is important that local Stonehill standards have an opportunity to· meet, mingle with, and exchange ideas with persons from other parts of the nation, and even from abroad. Such exchanges nourish the mind and enrich campus life. Athletic Program Despite its youthful years, Stonehill has developed a sound and attractive athletic program.' Its varsity sports are basketball, baseball, tennis and golf. There are also intramural and occasional outside competition in other sports, including football, bowling and ,track. A small group of ardent sailors even carries Stonehill colors in sailing meets throughout New England. Stonehill teams have more than held· their own in local competition, al).d are beginning to earn renown outside of this area.. 'Readers of Massachusetts sports . pages are familiar with Stonehill stars from this diocese. An outstanding Stonehill athlete is Leo Denault of New Bedford,· who was graduated in June, 1961, and who holds Stonehill's all-time record for points scored at basketball during his career. Other outstanding diocesan athletes now participating at Stonehill are: Bob LeBlanc, a senior this year, who was a lead- . ing hitter on last y~ar's baseball . team and manager of the varsity· baseball team, and a formidable tennis player, and Leo Paradis, a former baseball star at Holy Family High School in New Bedford, who is expected to be a leading candidate for a berth on the Stonehill team this year. Another outstanding freshman from New Bedford is ~enneth Turgeon, who is remembered· as one of. the best high school milers of .this region.

tures "on theological themes of interest to those in search of Christian unity." The lectures '~Iere originally given to no.oCatholic audiences and it is the author's hope that he has succeeded in presenting Catholic doctrine in a manner clea to those outside the Church. "The Queen's Portrait: The Story of Guadalupe" by Sister Mary Amatora, O.S.F. (Academy Library Guild, $3.95) is a telling . in words and pictures of Our Lady's only appearance on the American continent. It will be a happy souvenir of Mexico for those who have visited there, and seen the Guadalupe shrine.

Books for Tots Continued from Page Eleven You in School" and "Five Gifts from God," an explanation of the five senses. These books, too, are for beginning readers or for reading aloud. Patron Saints Another series, for children 5 to 9 is issued by Sheed & Ward, .and' consists of stories about patron saints. Latest are "Robeert" by M. K. Richardson and "Elizabeth" by Mary Harris. Each is $2. The Robert is St. Robert Bellarmine and the author, a Religious of the Sacred Heart, makes him wonderfully human and attractive. Boys named Robert will be proud· of their patron after· reading this. Elizabeth is St. Elizabeth of Hungary and her charming love story is told by Mary Harris in a way to please all Elizabeths, Isabels; Elspeths, and Bettys. "I shall take care of all the beggar children when I grow up," said Elizabeth.. "I don't want to be proud and starchy. I want to be like Jesus." "A Present from Petros" by Claire Huchet. Bishop (Viking,. $2.50) is ·the story of Petros, a Greek boy who was'guide for a little American girl, daughter of a writer. His presel\t to her is entirely unexpected and his meeting with her, changes his whole life. For 8 to 12 year olds. Also for 8 to 12 year olds is "The Gaucho Boy" by George Obligado, . illustrated by his daughter, Lilian. It is the tale of Nacho, a boy. of the Argentine pampas, who wants nothing more than to grow up to be a gaucho, the South American equivalent· of cowboy. His grandfather, however, knows that the gaucho life is being swallowed by civilizatiQn and he wants the boy to be educated. Finally Nacho agrees and the decision is helped by his animal friend, Joyita, a gopher-like creature known as a v-izcacha. . This is unusually advanced writing for the age group, but special children will enjoy the book ~ (Viking, $2.50.) Sister Beatrice "Sister Beatrice Goes West" by Catherine Cor 1 e y Anderson (Bruce, $2.95) is for 9 to 12 year olds and details the highly unus- . ual adventures of one Sister Beatrice who singlehandedly· runs affairs in a Utah school near a Navajo reservation. It will interest children, but no girl with a vocation in mind should be allowed to think that convent life will be like this! , ...,

Solons to pQ$$ EduceJtionl Aid PORTLAND (NC)-Sen. Wayne Morse of Oregon said here he' believes some kind of federal aid to education legislation . will . be passed by Congress next year. The Senator told a group of Catholic lawyers, priests and others that he would "do everything he ca1J." to carry out President Kennedy's federal aid to ,education program in the next session 'of Congress and that at least' some of it ~ouldbe passe!!. .' Morse, chairman of the Senate Education Committee, successfully piloted through the last Senate sessio'n a bill which would have provided federal aid to public schools. The measure died in the House. The Senator has said 'that the Catholic Hierarchy "will have to assume a large share of the responsibility for the failure of the House of Representatives to pa'ss a federal aid bill this session." Hierar:chy Wrong Morse said that "it was a great mistake when the Catholic Hierarchycame but with its pronoimcement on March 2 that it would oppose, aid to education unless equal treatment was given pr}vate. schools." . .President K~nnedy, has; declared repeatedly that he believes federal aid. 'to private schools would be unconstitutional and Morse takes tl\e same position. The Senatot consid'ers those who argue that grants to private schools would !be constitutional to be "dead wrong.'" He cited as supporting argument a recent decision of the Vermont Su-' preme Court which would allow public paymeilt for tuitions going to private high schools.

Holiday Games to' 'Decide Bristol, Tri-County Titles

Red Broadcasts To Africa Outdo Vatican Radio

By Jack Kineavy The 1961 interscholastic football season comes to a colorful elimax today with the playing of the traditional Thanksgiving Day games which have undeniably become a part of Americana. Upon the outcome of these contests hinges success or failure. Morris' high-powered eleven will Defeat casts a pall over a engage Durfee High's eleven at winning year; victory bring~ Sargent Field, New Bedford, atonement for the most dis- where a crowd of upwards of astrous of campaigns. All are must games. For the seniors there is no tomorrowand coaches find it relatively easy to get their squads"up"psychologically. The feature game of the day in Bristol County circles finds Attleboro at North Attleboro. The host Rocketeers are one game behind the Jewelers who are unbeaten in BCL competition. North dropped an early season game to Durfee for its only league setback but both Attleboro and North were successive week victims of Mansfield. On the basis of comparative performance, this should be a close one. Attleboro under the Cassidy regime has a two game streak going in the series. The Jewelrs, if victorious, will annex the BCL title which they shared with Durfee in the 1960 season. The charges of Coach Ed Marx, however, are conceding nothing, for a victory over their traditional foe will serve to elevate them into a top tie in the standings and give them a share of BCL laurels. The crucial contest on the Cape is' the Barnstable-Falmouth elash at Gov. Fuller Field. A victory for Coach Mike Gaddis' Lawrence High eleven will bring Falmouth its first Tri-County crown. A Barnstable victory will more than likely result in atop way tie between Coach John Parker's Red Raiders and the Case High Cardinals who are scheduled to entertain winleSs Somerset. Falmouth is undefeated but tied once in six league starts. Barnstable Is 5-1 In Tri-County and Case 4-0-2. The Cardinals registered. the upset of the season on Veteran's Day when they knocked Barntable from the ranks of the unbeaten by a 13-6 margin. Those close to the Swansea scene weren't surprised, however. Thill was the first game in several weeks that Coach Jack McCarthy was able to field his original starting eleven and their stout defensive work lends credence to the partisan boast that on a given day with a full complement the Cardinals can hold their own with anyone in Class D circles. This bodes ill for rival Somerset who will take the field at Swansea in quest of it. its first victory of the long 1961 campaign. A combination of. many circumstances has resulted in the Raiders' approaching their grid nadir but all this would be pushed into the background by a victory against Case. Coach Paul Bogan's squad will attempt to defy all odds. Durfee-New Becllord The only team in the area with a shot at completing its season undefeated is the Crimson of New Bedford High. Coach Nick

Pope John Comforts Disabled Veterans VATICAN CITY (NC) -The . smallest suffering does not escape the attention of God, Pope John told a group 01. disabled war veterans. Several thousand cripples and blind composed the special audi, ence which Pope John granted to Italy's disabled war veterans. "Everything in God's divine wisdom is for our good," said the Pope. "There is DO tear that is not counted; there is no sorrow that is not rewarded with specia! merit. aDd graces."

VATICAN CITY (NC) Vatican Radio's new broad· casts to the African conti. nent still fall far short of the radio propaganda several communist countries are servinll there. According to informatien released by Vatican Radio's director of newscasts, Father Francesco Farusi, S.J., the Soviet and Chinese communists have stepped up their radio propaganda in Africa considerably within the past year. Each week, he said, the Soviet Union broadcasts to Africa 19 quarter-hour programs in English and French, three half-hour programs in Swahili, plus seven hours in Portuguese to East Africa. Still more, it devotes 50 hours a week to programs in Arabic. Father Farusi said that the radio activity of communist China beamed to the African continent far exceeds that of the Soviet Unions. Its broadcasts also are in English, French, Swahili, Portuguese and Arabic. He said that the East German communists are now completing great radio transmitting statioo at Konakry, Guinea, which will soon join the propaganda campaign. Vatican Radio's activity in the same field is still small compared with that of the several communist nations, Father Fa.rusi said, but it intends to in-' crease its potential. '

10,000 is expected to be on hand. The Hilltoppers, coached by Don Montle, are 5-2 on the season and will enter the game a definite underdog. The setting is not unlike that of last season when Durfee posted an amazing 7-0 win. Can lightning strike twice? other holiday affairs, Coyle and Taunton. will vie for the city championship at Hopewell Park, Taunton. The Herringtowners, also looking for their first dividend of the season, have been coming on strong of late and they'll be out to close the campaign in a positive fashion for first year Coach Hamilton Lane. Coyle, always a formidable foe under veteran coach Jim Burns, will be heavily favored to retain its intra-city title. Playing his last football game for Mansfield against Foxboro will be everybody's All-Scholastic, Ron Gentili. The rangy triple-threat lias had a fabulous four year career with the Green Hornets under the guidance of coach Bob Parsons. And now it comes to an end and this in itself should be ample reason for thanksgiving for Foxboro mentor, Al Stuart, regardless of the outcome of thill game.



Other Games Dartmouth and Fairhaven, Wareham. and Bourne, DightonRehoboth and Apponequet round out the holiday schedule. The Little Green of Dartmouth, coached by Kevin Cadieux and featuring Tom· DaCosta and Rick Barry, will strive to conclude the school's most successful grid campaign in years agaiDBt a' Fairhaven team that can prove tough. Bourne will have to contain Wareham's Len Lopes, and inaugurating a new rivalry will be the two regional schools, Dighton-Rehoboth and Apponequet. A trio of former All-Dioces8Jl choices were in action in the B. C.-B. U. game last Saturday I{ at windy University Field, ~ former home of the Boston Braves. Playing bang up ball for the victoriOWll Eagles was Dave "Xelle, ex-Coyle mainstay. Dave plays a guard position as does his former high school teammate Steve Turkalo who turned in a fine job as a middle lineman for the Boston University Terriers. A reserve center on ,the B. U. squad is Dick Johnson who played a lot of ball for coach Gus DiRubio 'at Taunton High. Bishop Stang completed its first season 01. varsity competition with a decisive 34-2 victory over Dighton-Rehoboth last Sat•urday. The Spartans, coached by Carlin Lynch, compiled a splendid 6-1-1 record preparatory to entering Bristol County ranks next Autumn. The squad which showed a marked ability to come from behind in several games will be back intact next season.

Backfield Work of. Attleboro Jim' Gravel Elates Holy Cross Coach Eddie Anderson

By Frank Trond A· hard-driving halfback who last year gained respect all over Bristol County for his outstanding' play with

Attleboro High School, James H. "Jim" Gravel is now a Freshman footballer at Holy Cross College, where his career on the gridiron has continued to flourish. Dr. Eddie Anderson, veteran mentor of the Crusaders, reportedly. is very pleased with what he has seen of Gravel in action. No doubt Jim fits very nicely into Dr. Anderson's plans for future Holy Cross elevens. Packs Power Galore The son of Mr. and Mrs. Gerard Gravel of 1346 Newport Avenue, South Attleboro, Jimwho last year gave rival Bristol County League squads fits as he ripped continually through their lines and on to paydir~is attending Holy Cross on a full football scholarship. So wid-ely acknowledged was Jim's prowess on the gridiron last year, that he was nominated to an alternate halfback slot on a national high school dream team. Jim, 5 feet, 10 inches in height, weighs only 160 pounds, not big as footballers go. But what he lacks in weight-he is presently making an effort to gain additional poundage--he more than makes up in pure grit and determination.

Besides captaining the football unit, he was co-captain of both the AHS baseball and basketball· squads. An all-around athlete, Jim was worthy of the honor of leading his teammates. For he was a unanimous choice as a halfback on the Bristol County All-Star team, was selected as a guard on the county's basketball dream squad and was named catcher on Bristol 'County All-Star baseball team. Receives 10 Letters The Attleboro hoopsters were good enough to gain a three-way tie for tile county championship, with Fairhaven and Durfee Highs. And the AHS five rolled over Fairhaven in the ,annual . Tech Tourney in Boston Garden before being eliminated. Jim also found time to participate in track at Attleboro. Hi. specialty was the 100-yard dash, while he was also a member of the relay team. The Attleboro athlete was a 10-letter man when he was graduated from high school last June. . Among the host of trophies Jim has received, which attest to his ability in all sports, is one he received in 1960 for having the top batting average on the Attle-· boro American Legion diamond squad. Bard Outdoof Work Jim's full-time hobby is sports. He played some baseball and basketball for CYO teams from his parish, S1: Theresa Church. When he gets the opportunity, Jim enjoys taking part in wrestling matches. Among the other sports he favors are golf and hockey. The last two Summers the Holy Cross Frosh gridder has been employed by a construction company from North Attleboro. He likes the hard work outdoors,

which also keeps 'him in goOO shape. Jim has an older brothel', Gerard J., a 7th Grade teacher in an Ohio school and a sister, Mrs. Marion Fromont of Sycamore Avenue, South Attlebol"C. Educailon Major Majoring in education at Holy Cross, Jim wants to teach, like his brother, when· his college days are over. The ambition which dominates his thoughts, however, is to become a coach. . Subjects Jim is studying this semester are math, French, English, history and chemistry. He boards at the Worcester college and gets home whenever his full schedule of practice sessions, games and studies permit. With Jim playing at left hal1back, the young Crusader eleven this season has gained a 3-1 record. Victories by the Holy Cross Frosh were over Brown and Dartmouth, while the yearling Crusaders split with the BostO,D College Freshmen. Gridiron Greatness Jim was cited after he score(l a touchdown in the game against Dartmouth. Despite the fact BC up-ended the young Crusaders, Boston sports writers were high in their. praise of the halfback from Attleboro. The future holds promli..e of gridiron greatness at Holy ~oss for Jim Gravei, a fine yuung athlete whose college playing is just beginning.
