Statement In the absence of Bishop Con­ nolly who is in Rome, Bishop Gerrard issued this statement on the President's death: In the death of President Ken­ nedy the United States has suf­ fered a great loss. He has given his life for his country. No man could do more. As a statesman, the world will miss his leader­ ship. His interests extended to all men, and he sought always to advance their freedom and well-being. The heavy burden of his office now falls upon the shoulders of another. All citizens should pray for God's guidance and strength. upon our new President. At the same time, the Bishops, priests and faithful of the Diocese of Fall River ex­ tend to Mrs. Kennedy, to the president's parents and all the members of his family our deep sympathy in this hour of sorrow. 1mt~~lWili§i)':&%~;;:-m@~;!$~m:*,::lW;t'f1i.W.1l

Assassination Stuns" Cape Friends of Late President By Russell On Friday, November 22, a most terrible act of murder was committed and television, radio, and the press have thoroughly covered the re­ action of the country. We know how the people of Chicago, of Ithaca, of New York, of San

Francisco, of all the thousands

of small towns in all our States, felt about the death of President Kennedy. And by now, most of us know just how the residents of Cape Cod felt-particularly his friends and neighbors in and near Hyannis Port. But not much has been said about Hyannis - the shopping and business center for the smaller communities - and the people who work and live there. Where the connection with Mr. Kennedy, aj President, was almost entirely through the swarming tourists and Summer visitors. Hyannis heard the news and went through the same familiar cycle - shock, unbelief, partial acceptance, and a vague, sad.

United states of America, was held Monday in Arlington Na­ tional Cemetery following a pontifical low requiem Mass at St. Matthew's Cathedral in Washington. The 46-year old Massachusetts native was assasinated as he rode in a motorcade in Dallas eariy last Friday afternoon by a sniper believed t~ be Lee Harvey Oswald who himself was murdered by gunshot on Sunday last when he was being trans­ ferred from the city to the county jail in the community of the Texas crime which stunned, shocked and grieved the entire nation. Pre sid e n t Lyndon Baines Johnson of Texas, who served as Vice President for the past two years and 10 months, suc­ ceeded to the highest office in the nation. He was sworn in as Chief Executive aboard the U. S. Air Force plane which carried the body of the late President back to the nation's capital. The late Pre sid e n t, who labored in the cause of peace and the dignity of the individual, wall a familiar figure in the Diocese of Fall River where he has spent part of each Summer, in addition to religious and national holy­ days and holidays, before and during his term of office.

1'1'1- Eminence Richard Cardi­ nal Cushing, Archbishop of Bos­ ton, a lifetime friend of the slliin President celebrated the requiem Mass in' the nation's capital which was attended by the heads and representatives of countries from all parts of the world. It was Cardinal Cushing who officiated at the wedding on Sept. 12, 1953, of John Fitzgerald Kennedy and Jacqueline Lee Bouvier. The Cardinal gave the invo­ cation at the inauguration of President Kennedy on Jan. 20, 1961. Only last August 10 Cardinal Cushing offered the "Mass of the Angels," Requiem for in­ fants, in his private chapel for Patrick Bouvier Kennedy, infant son of the President and the First Lady. The child had died two days· after birth. The Requiem Mass followed a week end of mourning. For the preceding 24 hours the Presi­ dent's body lay in state in the rotunda of the Capitol Building. Thousands of men, women and children of every race, color and creed filed past the bier to paT their last respects. Before being taken to the Cap_ itol, the body lay in the East Room of the White House. The casket was draped with an American flag and the cata­ falque was covered in black. A large crucifix bearing an ivory figure of Christ was at the foot of the casket which was flanked by four candl-es and decorated with a bouquet of white lilies and carnations. When the body was brought to the White House at 4:25 A.M. from the Naval medical center in in Bethesda, Md., a prayer was offered by a priest waiting there. Two priests remained Turn to Page Two

Diocesan Collection Sunday For Catholic University My dear brethren in Christ: By long tradition, we show our support of The Cath~ olic University in Washington, next Sunday, December first. Of all our educational institutions, this is the cap-stone. It makes strong and firm the whole edifice of C'atholic Education in the United States. A large percentage of the sisters, brothers and priests that staff our schools have had their advanced training at the University. And each year, the number of laymen and women attending classes there increases. Last year alone, there were upwards of 16,000 registered students at The Catholic University. To accommodate this ever increasing patronage there is a growing need for class-room, laboratory and living facilities. No more than any other institution On collegiate or post-graduate level, can they carry out their programme for expansion on student fees. As a matter of fact, tuition charges total about one third of what it takes to carryon the work of The Catholic University. And this sad imbalance is even more costly to the University in the graduate departments patronized by priests and religious trying to prepare for and improve their educational activity through­ out the land. So we need to continue our loyal support, and help keep our Catholic University in the forefront. It has and it will promote and prepare the type of leadership needed in our uncertain times. I am sure youwill continue your gen­ erous traditions, and wish to thank you cordially for what you have already done and will do to sustain this noble cause. Faithfully yours in Christ

Episcopal Bishops Agree on Role In Movement ,Toward Reunion LITTLE ROCK (NC) - The House of Bishops of ~he 'Episco. pal Church concluded a three­ day conference here by issuing a 'public statement that' "the goal of the Episcopal Church must be organic unity, not only with our Protestant brethern but also with the Church of Rome and Orthodox Churches."

He said they "repre­ sented divergent points of view," but that discussion of them "led • • • to an unusual degree of understanding and a remarkable unity" regarding the reunifica­ tion of Christendom. The statement reaffirmed the Episcopal mind regarding his­ toric creeds, the sacraments of Baptism and Holy Communion, the Bible "and the overwhelm­ ing necessity for the preserva­ tion of the historic episcopate." , "Finally," the statement con­ cluded, "the goal of the Epis­ copal Church must be organie unity not only with our Protes­ tant brethren but also with the Church of Rome and Orthod,ox Churches."

Many Adults Offer Good' Example to Teen-agers

CAMBRIDGE (NC;) - The first court test designed to oveJl­ turn the U.S. Supreme Court de­ cision banning religious exer­ cises in public schools was sche­ duled for a hearing yesterday in Middlesex Co u n t y Superior Court here. Rev. Donald A. Waite, a Bap­ tist minister and Leo Kahaim, Middleboro furniture manufac­ turer, filed the suit which con­ tends that Bible reading in pub­ lic schools is sanctioned by Ma&­ achusetts law. They said they represent the Committee to Re­ store Bible Reading in the Pub­ lic Schools.

By Rev.- Joseph T. McGloin, S.J. Whenever you talk to teen-agers for any length of time about their problems, you always seem to get back to one subject, adults.

Flash From Dallas StunsFriends

. ·Of President In Hyannisport Continued from Page One shopping night--and the traffic in Hyannis. was normal for this time of year. But, everywhere, in the shopping and other adiv­ ities, there was a quietness, a certain formality, a thin veil of withdrawal covering an und.~rly­ lng unsureness. Even in the places used ·and acceptedi as "clubs" by the younger citizens, the quietness prevailed-and it was noted that, for the first time since they were installed, the juke boxes were silent. The Cape Bowl stayed open because there was no way of notifying the many league t.~ams due to bowl Friday night but Mrs. Charles Pratt said that Dnly a few showed up and they had little interest or spirit and the establishment closed early in the evening. Prayers and Masses Shortly after the first news flashes arrived, radio station WOCB abandoned all local pro­ grams and joined the network for full coverage - breaking in only to give notice of the caR­ cellation of various social and sporting activities: to announce the time and place of prayel' meetings and Masses; and to bring special interviews with local people close to the Ken­ nedy family. Most of the people in Hyannis,. like the rest of us, seel1li!d to be waiting for the voire of some reassuring announcer saying: "We hope this program has. made you think. We must a11 make' sure it can never happen here!" But the numbness wore off, leaving the-sadness and the real_ ization that there would be no. reassuring announcer - that it had, indeed, "happened here." Personal Loss So there was sadness and grief and a dull, gnawing anger. These might vary in degree for the individual- but the people in the stores, in the parking lots, and on the street, had one~ thing. in common, a sense of pe:rsonal loss. Whether they ,knew him or not, whether they agreed with his policies or not, they all had the feeling of personal involve­ ment. And they all thought of him as an individual rather than as "the President." For mos~ of WI­ ftlis feeling is the result of l:he impact of a dynamic and strong; character--of exposure to an in.­ sistence on "individualne~.s" that allowed us no retreat to- a color­ le9S "they" or "him" Ol~ "that guy." Long Known In Hyannis there is a further reason. Hyannis has known the Kennedy family for a long. long. time and the older merchants. and citizens have a clear remem~ branee of the ''Kennedy kids"­ getting haircuts from Costas Sethares and, later, from Nelson Kierstead - playing around. the clothing store of Hyman Burman -sitting on the curb in front of By Hirsch's while waiting to be picked up by the family car­ stopping at the home of E­ Thomas Murphy and asking to borrow a brown derby as part of a treasure hunt. The fact that one of them be­

came President did not really change anything. Except, of course, for the swarms of Sum­ mer visitors and tourists, all bent, apparently, on seeing Jack Kennedy or his wife or his fam_ ily or the fence around his home in Hyannis Port-so that certain restrictiv-e measures had to be taken by the Police to save the fence from being destroyed and to insure some degree of privacy. Next Summer Next Summer things will be different. The Police can assume that they will be relieved of some special assignments--that they will not have to deal with the sightseeing jams at Hyannis Port and at St. Francis Xavier Chu,reh on Sunday mornings. And St. Francis Xavier, in to- insure some degree of privacy. turn, will not have to deal with the throngs of sightseeing "fans" on Sunday morningS'-they will not have the problem of what to do with those who, despite their own. personal beliefs or lack of them, arrived early for· the first Mass and sat stolidly through the President arrived. WOCB can reduce the Sum­ mer staff and relax a bit and re­ call the dayS when the newly elected Senator, Jack Kennedy, would come to the studios for frequent-and at times-infor­ mat-interviews and broadcasts. Old Family Hyannis will miss John Fitzgerald· Kennedy, not only as President, but as a member of' an old, known and well"-liked family.. The shock will wear off, the sadness will f~de, the puzzled anger will die away - but in Hyannis the memory of Jack Kennedy will stay warm and bright and shining in the hearts of old and young. They can re­ call his kindness and his help and they will remember him with affection. The very young wilt remember him with grati­ tude as they test their skill and skates at the Kennedy Memorial Rink.

It noted that the film, a Co­ lumbia release based in a novel by Henry Morton Robinson, "is the fictional story of an Amer­ ican priest based from the time of his ordination to his nomina­ tion. as a cardinal." The legion's observation said further: 'As a dramatization of the hu­ manity of the Catholic priest­ hood, presented against a back­ ground of richly photographed and handsomely produced litur­ gical ceremonies, and realized with some sensitive perfor­ mances, this motion picture makes for absorbing entertain­ ment. "The theme of the story, how­ ever, involving as it does delicate theological-ethical . issues and Catholic practices, is sometimes treated in such a manner that questions which would require a fuller explanation for the im­ mature and uninformed, may be subject to possible misunde~­ standing and misinterpretation. While noting this. reservation, the legion recognizes that, with proper guidancf' and instruction, adolescents could also find the film of entertainment interest."

• "Poured Out m Sacrifice" As for me, I am already being poured out in t'lacrifice, and the time of my deliverance is at hand. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith. For the rest, there is laid up for me a crown of justice, which the Lord, the just Judge, will give me in that day; yet not to me only, but also to those who love his coming:' U

These words of St. Paul to his beloved Timothy could well have echoed around the stricken young figure of John Fitzgerald Kennedy as he bled out his life in the tragic moments that followed the assassin's attack on Friday last. There lay a President, a husband, a father, a son, a brother, a friend. The tears 'and hopes and griefs of so very many clustered around his still form in those terrifying minutes when a nation's heart broke and a world was plunged into mourning.

Ancient Hat Given to CI'othing Drive Will Surprise Recipient By Mary Tinley Daly Somebody, somewhere, is going to get the surprise of his life when ·that portion of the Bishops' Relief clothing emanating from our house lands on his hapless head.

That beat-up old one is as he will, a misshapen old a disgrace, a positive disgrace!" brown felt hat is beyond his (Far be it from us to remind reach forevermore.

You'd n ever find a newspa­ perman done up in one of those Madison Ave­ nue jobs with a narrow brim and, excuse the heresy, a feath­ er mit.'No, sir, give me myoid brown felt!"

So.Mueh Charae~

Well, sir, we' did give it to bim, gave it to him when it was a brand new brown felt, beauti­ fully blocked, with snap brim and with, excuse the her~sy, a gay little feather in the hatband. At the time; it replaced its pre­ decessor, an old gray felt, also with "character," so much char­ acter that it literally wore through in the brim where our reporter constantly tugged it over his eyes. At the time we gave him the new - now old - brown felt, fir9t step was removal of the heretical feather which he gave

to Ginny for her doll. (Now you

know how long ago that was!)

So, within a week or two, the hat

blocker would have seethed with

frustration had he seen how

quickly all his efforts were sse­

rificed to "character:'

Maybe it is the newspaperman

in him that causes the Head of

the House to treat hats the way

he does, through we have known a lot of newspapermen who, sartorially, could pass for in­ surance salesmen, politicians or

stock brokers - some of the

younger ones even adopting the

new cult of hatlessness.

Not for our reporter. Like a

fireman 9t rea kin g into his

clothes, our man slaps that old

hat on his head at an oblique

angl,e, rolling brim up on left

side, pulling it down over his

eyes with the right hand, and

h'e's off - not to cover murders,

fires and yoking9 as in the past

- but t!ven on such sedate mis­

sions as going to Mass. The ef­ fect is characteristic; perhaps "swashbuckling" is the best one word description. Maybe it was chicken to keep the old brown felt out of the Bishops' Relief box the past sev­ eral years - or the fact that we are fond of the guy who is fond of the hat. Organize ConsPWaey This Fall, however, a couple of style conscious daughter9 got into the act, even to a financial stake in the venture. "We've bought Daddy a new hat and he's going to wear it right now - not wait till Christ-

ately start on its swashbuckle path.) "The only way we'll get him to wear the new one is to do away with the old - give it to a bishop." We knew what she meant, though for a moment the thought of a bishop' wearing our report­ er's hat was startling. Today we packed: all of us eon t rib uti n g really usable clothing and bedding, the Head of the House adding a suit, coat, 9hoes underwear and., unbe­ knownst to himself, his "trea­ sure," the old felt hat. "I'll lug the stuff over t(l' the rectory," he volunteered., hoisting the heavy box down the front steps, into the car. "Some­ body bring me my hat?" "Your hat is already iR the car," one of the girls said, some­ what ironically. "Besides, it's so mild, you don't even need one." Thus, in a way, the Head 01. the House himself contributed his reporter's hat to someone, somewhere. ' May it descend, somewhere in the world, upon the head of a man who likes "character" in his hat - or at least likes to keep the rain off his head!

_ Indian Archbishop D'Souza Favors Profound Reform of Roman Curia

Council Decree on Judaism

Great Moment in History

ROME (DW) - Archbishop Eugene D'Souza, 46, Indian-born Archbishop of Nagpur and Bho­ pal, India, believes the Roman Curia should be subjected to "profound reform" just as the rest of the Church. On that same day Joseph Cardinal Frings of' Cologne had opened the day's discussion with a severe note of disapproval of certain methods adopted by the Holy Office,

Calling attention to a Schema text which says "The Congrega­ tions of the Roman Curia fulfill their office in the name and by the authority of the Supreme Pontiff," Archbishop D'Souza asked the Council Fathers, "What precisely do these wOrds mean?" Voice of Majority

ROME (DW)-Zachariah Shuster, 60, European Di­

rector of the American Jewish Committee, says the Vatican

Council draft on Catholic-Jewish relations "is certainly one

of the greatest moments in Jewish history," He said he

felt confident "that Jews of

this generation will feel

fortunate to have witnessed Patriarch Notes

this4Pistoric step on the part

of the Church." The draft was officially titled "The Attitude of

Catholics towards Non-Chris­

tians, particularly toward the

Jews," and is to form chapter four of the Schema on Ecu­

menism. Still Being Taught Shuster declared "it has been agreed by all those who deal with the problem of anti-Semi­ tism, that one of its causes is most likely the popular be~iefs about Jews that have been trans­ mitted from generation to gen­ eration in the Christian world." ~e said these beliefs were, itt short, "that Jews as a people bear the responsibility for the erucifixion of Jesus Christ, and that therefore they' were con­ demned to dispersion and per­ lecution down through the ages." The Church has never pro­ claimed these beliefs as dogmas, Sh.uster emphasized, "but they were taught in Christian schools, both Catholic and Protestant, were accepted by .large masses of Christian populations every­ where, and are still being taught in catechisms in use today in France, the United States, and Germany." Ends Charges The initiative for improving Catholic-'Jewish relations and

for clarifying the position of the

Catholic Church once and, for all, Shuster said, "came from the highest authorities of the Church m Rome." He noted it was Pope John himself who got the idea and entrusted the actual work of ,tlidying this problem and de­ veloping a final solution for it to Cardinal Bea ·and his staff at the Secretariat for Promoting Christian Unity. ' In the course of this work, Shuster said, the Vatican soli:. cited the views of the most com­ petent scholars imd religious leaders, :both Christians and Jews, and a great body of know­ ledge was accumulated during the past three years. "One can confidently say," he added, "that there was not one Jewish group "or trend or leading Jewish thinker wbo has not expressed his views to the authorities in Rome at their re­ quest." Shuster stressed the Council decree, still to be discussed, con­ tained "a total rejection of the myth of Jewish guilt for the Crucifixion." He said it is hoped that the practical effect of the decree will be "that in the course of time no catechism or textbook used in Catholic schools and seminaries will repeat these charges." Better Understanding He pointed out the decree speaks "with warmth and re­ spect of Judaism, pointing out that Christianity is rooted in Judaism, and that there is a great affinity between these two religions." , Shuster said that "never be­ fore was there such a statement and call issued by the highest authority of the church with re­ gard to Jews and JUdaism," , adding that Jews may now look forward to a new era in which Jews and Christians will begin to understand one another.

Supreme Power

Of Pontiff

ROME (DW) - Patriarch

Ignace Pierre XVI Batanian~ .64, .of Cilicia of the Armen-' ians, with residence in Bey­ routh, Lebanon, has reminded Council Fathers to keep in mind during their discussion of the Schema "on Bishops and the Government of Dioceses," that 'the primacy of the Roman Pon­ tiff cannot be limiied in any way whatever." He also asked that' Council Fathers to be "objective and calm in making their observ~- , tions on the present form of the central administration of the Churcl1, giving due' consider~­ tion to the merits of the Supreme Pontiff's collaborators, and .to the obligation of avoiding scan­ dal." .

"Having Canon Law the same

for the entire world is the letter

of the law which kills." He then

listed a number of cases for

which Rome now legislates, and

asked "Would not the best

judges for solving many of these

questions be the bishops them­

selves, aided by experts of their

own region?"

Better Arrangement The common good oj~ the Church would greatly profit, he said, "if some Senate, so to say, were formed of bishops from various nations, who might rule the Church with the Supreme Pontiff." But he pointed out it would be even more desirable' 'if on the one hand the powerc,f the Roman Curia were limited, and on the other hand the bishops might be. granted all the :facul­ ties which belong to them by common 'arid divine 'law f(lr the exercise of. their office, while the Apostolic See always rl~tains the right to reserve to itself those things, which are oppor­ tune for the good' of the lmtire Church."

He said "that unless the pow­ er of the Curia is precisely de­ fined, the state of affairs in the Church will revert to what it ARCHBISHOP D'SOUZA

ROME - The other night, as we dined with about eight~n bishops from behind the Iron Curtain, we asked seven of them who were near us at table to add up the number of years they ha~ spent in pris?n and in concentration camps because of their Faith. The total was twenty-six years! We then told them that they were "dry martyrs," explaining that a "wet martyr" was one w:ho shed blood for his Faith while a dry martyr was one who died a thousand times through suffering. They answered: "We are all potential wet martyrs," adding that they had either just gotten out of prison or were getting ready to be sent back.

$16,000 or the equivalent of only 10 per cent of the annual running expenses of his arch­ diocese. "I suppose that 50 per cent of my time is taken up just with getting enough funds to keep going," the archbishop pointed out. adding his experience is shared by every mission bishop in the wo;ld. Archbishop Henry declared the doctrine of the collegiality of bishops, if drawn to its logi­ cal conclusion, would have a tre­ mendous effect on the mis­ sionary role of the Church, "be­ cause it means, in short, that the bishops as a body are respon­ sible for the entire Church." An alternative to tithing. Archbishop Henry said, "would be direct assistance by developed dioceses' and parishes to under­ developed dioceses and par­ ishes." In order that as much equity as possible might be reached in both systems of sup­ port, there would have to be national and international com­ missions· composed of represen­ tatives of existing episcopal con­ ferences, to which bishops in need could make application. Spreading Gospel Archbishop Henry explained that such a program would go a long way toward destroying the patronizing attitude found today in the Church toward missionary work, and would make bishops, priests and laity realize that missionary work is not identi­ fied with running orphanages. hospitals and leprosaria, but consists in firmly establishing the Church in a given area, be this in a so-called mission coun­ try or in the homeland, wher­ ever the Church is being spread.

ROME (DW) - "Before the Church will be able to effective­ ly preach the Gospel to every creature, it will be necessary to tithe every parish in the world, even the poorest," said Archbish­ op Harol W. 'Henry, 54, who has spent 30 years in Korea as a Columban Father and today is head of the Kwangju Archdio­ cese there. Archbishop Henry, benn In Northfield, Minn. and a convert to Catholicism, believf:os "tithing would oblige each parish to con­ tribute 10 per cent of its income each year to a general fund to be applied to mission areas." 'Crumbs from Table' The Society for the Propaga­ tion of the Faith, the Church's official fund-collecting organi­ zation for mission areas, "was a wonderful thing in its day," Archbishop Henry said, "but the basic idea behind it falls far short of the mission apostolate of the Church." He feels mission support is a serious personal obligation in justice for Catholics, "not merely a work of charity of supereroga­ tion in which little sacrifices are made for the benefit of the mis­ sions." The Archbishop said the atti­ tude of some bishops, priests and laity in various parts of the world, "that the missions ought to be satisfied with the crumbs which fall from the table," is an attitude incompatible with Pope John XXIII's declaration that the propagation of the Gospel among men is the most impor­ tant work of the Church.

We remember that We had the honor of his visit and that We JWted in him great wisdom and high purpose for the good of humanity. We shall offer Holy Mass tomorrow, Nov. 23, for the peace of his soul, for the comfort of those who mourn his death and so that, not hatred, but lo,ve shall reign in humanity." The Pope's message to Presi­ dent Johnson said: "To Your Excellency and to the beloved American people We offer the expression of Our sin­ cerest prayerful condolences on the death in particularly tragic circumstances of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy, whom We had known personally and whose intrepid character and high qualities We admired. We pray God 1<> grant Your Excellency as you accede to the presidency of the nation His choicest graces of guidance and strength." The Pope lold Mrs. Kennedy: "We hasten to send you, be­ loved daughter, the assurance of Our heartfelt sympathy in your deep sorrow, and of Our fervent prayers for the eternal repose, of the soul of your husband, John Fitzgerald Kennedy. Upon you and your children We bestow in pledge of sustaining and Clm­ IIOling divine graces Our affec­ tionate pat ern a 1 apostc)lic blessing." Pope Paul told the President's parents, Mr. and Mrs. J'Oseph Kennedy: "Our paternal heart shares in your immense sorrow on the tragic death of your son, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, and, in as­ IIUring Our prayers for the el er­ nal repose of his soul, We Im­ plore from God abundant gra,ces of consolation and comfort for )'Ou both and for all the family, imparting to all in pledge of that divine solace Our most affec­ tionate apostolic blessing." The Pontiff's message to the President's brother, Atty. Glen.

To Cardinal Cushing he said: "We share in your loss, beloved son, on the sad death of Presi­ dent John Fitzgerald Kennedy and We assure' Our prayers for his soul and for your solace and that of all who knew and loved him:' At the reception for F AO dele­ gates, Pope Paul said: "We cannot commence Our discourse without reference to the tragic death of the President of the United States, John Fitz­ gerald Kennedy. We wish to reiterate here the sentiments to which We have already given public expression; of deploring the criminal action; of admira­ tion for the man; of Our prayers for his eternal' repose, for his country and for the world, which recognizes in him a great leader, and finally for a prayerful wish that his death may not hinder the cause of peace but serve as a sacrifice and example for the good of all mankind."

The bishop pointed out that this was not a dogmatic treatise but a pastoral decree intended for the men of today. Why need we such a chapter? The Bishop answered: (1) For the sake of truth (the Church has always taught the principle of religious freedom); (2) For defense against materialistic atheism (which deprives half the world of religious liberty); (3) .

J.F.K.: Advocate of At'hletics Apostle, of Sportsmanship

Pfeffer Predicts Prayer in Public Schools to End

By Jilek Kineavy "He was the 35th President of the United States, per­ sonification of youth, by word and act an ardent advocate of athletics, and" by example, an apostle of sportsmanship." The above is taken verbatim from Frank Lanning's moving tribute to the late President, lSimilarity 'between these two' John F. Kennedy. It epito­ vigorous personalities hardly mizes succinctly the lifelong ends there·but suffice to say they relationship of a vibrant were both staunch exponents of personality to the world of athle­ tics which he loved and upon which he pIa c e d great value. Widely circu­ lated on the sports pages of a grief-stricken nation was the nine year old Jack Kennedy as he looked when he quar­ tered the foot­ ball tea m at Dexter School in Brookline. From there he went to' Choate where his slender frame belied the physical requisites for the tackle position which he held. Courace at Convictiona It was at Choate that Jilek Kennedy was picked "Most Likely to Succeed" by his c,ir­ cumspect fellow members of 'the class of 1935. His prep school coach and housemaster, Earl Lienbach, recalls him al • youngster "who had the courage of hill convictioNl and if be thought he was right, he stood up for them with all his might." Competitive athletics w ere very much a part of the late President's life. At Harvard he continued to play football on the freshman and junior varsity level and though he was a mem­ ber of the varsity swimmimg team, the gridiron sport :re­ mained his favorite. Only last October 19 he made an im­ promptu appearance in the Sta­ dium at the Harvard-Columbia game. Earlier in the day he had cle­ livered a major foreign poliC7 address at a special convocatlon at the University of Maine at which he was ~ recipient of the honorary doctor of laws de­ gree. We recall vividly how he captivated his Maine audience that day-as he did so many others on so many and varied occasions. 'In Sound Body' Away from the arduous duties Bnd responsibilities of the -of­ fice of the Chief Executive, Kcm­ nedy spent many relaxing mo­ ments, sailing with his familly, or playing a few holes of golf with close friends. In both sports he was proficient, through a back injury sustained in Naval combat service in World War II placed limitations on his linkJ aetivities. In many respects Jack Kcm­ nedy's love of sports was :re­ miniscent of an illustrious pre­ decessor, 'Teddy Roo s eve 1 t, during whose tenure the White House was an open sesame :for leading figurell of that time. 'I'he

French Philosopher Gets Literary Prize PARIS (NC)-French Catholic philosopher Jacques Maritain has received France's national grand prize for letters. Maritain, 81, professor at the Institute of Medieval Studies in Toronto and professor emeri'tus of Princeton University, received word of the honor at his retrl~at with a community of the Little Brothers of Jesus near Toulouse where he was in bed with the grippe. "I am surprised and very grateful," he said. "I was not a candidate for this distinction. My whole life is now oriented toward silence and recollection."

the sound mind in a sound body way of life. A strong bond, of mutual re­ spect and admiration existed be­ tween President Kennedy and a legion of sports luminaries. One of these was Stan Musial who re­ cently retired after a long and distinguished bas e ball career with the St. Louis Cardinal. On the occasion of their first meet­ ing at an All-Star game a couple of years ago, the President witti­ ly observed to Musial, "There are many who -think me too young and you too old for our jobs. We'll fool them." Youth Fitness Program The late. President delighted 'in sports both as a pal1ticipant " and a spectator but he was ap­ palled by the failure of Ameri­ can youth to measure up to ser­ viee induction minimum physi­ cal standards. A Council for Youth Fitness was subsequently established and the celebrated Bud Wilkinson of Okl~homa grid fame was named chairman. The development of a youth fitness program saw many of the nation's sports figures in­ vited to the White House for consultation. The end result of their collaboration was a pro­ gram which has gained wide-, spread acceptance in the schools throughout the nation and which in the years to come will con­ tinue to function as a vital me­ morial to the young President whose concern for the physical well-being of the youth of the United States caused it to come to reality. "Fortunate is the man," said the Roman historian Pliny the Younger, "whose deeds are wor_ thy of being recorded; so too he who has the ability to write that which ought to be read. But most fortunate indeed is he to whom both talents been given." In this latter category history has al­ ready reserved a place for our late beloved President under 'whose inspired and courageous ' leadership the cause of human dignity has been advanced.

Praises Canadians Holy Father Lauds Brotherhood, Unity

Of English-Speaking, French-Speaking

ROME (NC) - Pope Paul VI praised the "happy spectacle of unity and brotherhood" between English-speaking and French­ speaking Canadians during a visit to the Canadian college here. The Pope visited the Canadian College to marl~ the 75th anni­ versary of its founding. Welcom. ing him were James Cardinal McGuigan of Toronto, Paul Cardinal Leger, S.S., of Montr­ al and' Msgr. Romauld Bisson­ nette, S.S., rector of the college. After a prayer in the college chapel, the Pope went to a hall where all the Canadian Bishops attending the Council and the students at the college were gathered. Replying to addresses by Car­ dinals McGuigan and Leger the Pope spoke first in Frencl1 and then in English. 'Great Patrimony' He recalled having visited Canada briefly and said that he had had a glimpse "of 'your sanc­ tuaries, your varied educational, charitable and welfare institu-

He told the bishops and the students that the traditions of their Faith, their faihfulness 0 the Holy See and "the whole present impulse of Canadian Catholicism in the social, intel­ lectual anti educational spheres" are a "grea~ patrimony to pre­ serve, to defend, to deepen and to develop."

Mter praising the brotherhood "between the two great races and languages," the Pope added: "We exhort you always to con­ serve and strengthen it, to give ever more impressive testimony to two marks in particular of the true Church: her unity and her Catholicity."

Young Navajo Hopes to Return Home as Tribe's First Priest DETROIT (N C) David Charlie, a young Navajo Indian studying for the priesthood at the Franciscan Fathers' Duns Scotus College here, expects to . be the first of his tribe to be. come a priest. He's Friar Alonzo Charles now, with seven years of study be­ hind him. There remains another seven year'S before he call achieve his ambition. A hard-riding, straight-shoot­ ing hunter, it was a long way __ both in distance and time from the Navajo reservation to the Franciscan Seminary. The reservation is 20,000 square miles of arid, rocky land_ scape in Arizona and New Mex. ico, where many Navajos still herd sheep and horses, weave blankets, grow corn and peaches in the thin soil, and retain the close ties of a large family which fears all "foreigners." David's mother died when he was a youngster. He was brought up by a grandmother until his father remarried, this time with a Catholic.
