Jesuit Author Defends Pop'e

MILWAUKEE (NC) Archbishop William E~ Coua­ lins of Milwaukee told New­ man chaplains here they are "missing the point" unless they make greater attempts to gain the help of the laity in their apostolate. The archbishop made the com­ ment when two priests requested more members of the clergy be assigned as fulltime chaplains at state universities. At present only two priests serve fulltime as Newman chaplains in Wiscon-' sin. Thirteen chaplains reported to Archbishop Cousins at· the Uni­ versityof Wisconsin-Milwaukee Newman Center as part of Ii national program to examine and . reevaluate the' Newman aposto­ late. Some members of the par­ ish clergy also attended. Two priests, Father Raymond H. Kriege, full-time chaplain at the center, and Father Thomas Schmitz, a curate at St. James parish, Kenosha, suggested an add;tional priest be assJgned to the center, and that two more be appointed to serve schools in the Kenosha-Racine area by 1972 and four by 1980. ' Lack lP'ersonneU "A good bit of this is projec­ tion," Archbishop Cousins re­ plied, "but all of you are miss­ mg the point. You should think m terms of lay men and women because somewhere there has to be a move on the part Of the laity. '''We no longer have the per­ Sonnel," the Archbishop con­ tinued.

NEW YORK (NC)-An Israeli author and journalist character­ ized "The Deputy," the contro­ 'versial play by German author Rolf Hochhuth produced in this country three years ago, as tendentious in its selectivity and patchy facts." The play criticized Pope Pius XII for failing to do all he could to aid the Jews during the nazi persecution of World War II. Speaking at a press conference here at the Institute of Human Relations of the American Jew­ ish Comrtlittee, Pinchas E. La­ pide, a former Israeli consul in Milan, Italy, stated that· '~the al­ leged silence of Pius XII was never as complete or as austere as the post-Hochhutch silence." Lapide, who is active in the Israeli interreligious movement, ' is in the U. S. lecturing and making arrangements for publi­ cation of his book, "The Last Three Popes and the Jews." He explained he could not have written a book about Pius XII alone without including his pre­ decessor, Pius XI, who he feels was "Europe's most zealous anti­ nazi", or his successor, John XXIII.

BONN' (NC) - The Church's worldwide emphasis on retiring' bishops and priests at the age of 75 will have little effect in Poland, according to a Polish. trade. union publication received here in Germany. The periodical, Glos Pracy, examining the ages of the coun­ try's bishops,. finds only seven who are over 75. The youthful character of the Polish body of priests is seen in statistics show­ ing that only 930 of the total of 17,000 are over.70, and that 11,000 are below the age of 50..

.Vatican Renders Decisions

On Mass, Communion" Si,te

VATICAN CITY (NC) -The proper place t9 distribute Holy Communion to the faithful is still at the edge of the sanctuary area and special care must be taken in accepting a sung MasS 8tipend for a concelebrated Mass. These were the latest decisions of the postconciliar liturgy com­ mission and the Congregation of tile Council. The current issue of "Notl­ tiae," the Latin publication of the Vatican Commission for the Implementation of the Council's Constitution on the Liturgy, put~ forth the following opinions. "It d~s not seem proper to de­ part from the traditional custom according to which the faithful offer gifts (for Mass) -at the gates of the sanctuary and there ReCeive Communion," the deci­ sion stated. References were made to the Roman Ritual, tit. V, lllos.2-4. The opinion-"not proper"­ was given in answer to questions l!'aised, by a custom growing in some places of making a "table" fur the distribution of Holy Communion. This attempt, it was ¢hought, would "highlight par­ ticipation in the same sacrifice'!! Under such' circumstances; the Jiaithful would receive Holy Comll'!union from the priest llcross the altar while he stands iin the S;8P1e' place in which he @lelebrates Mass. The Vatican Commission favors the reception of Communion. by the faithful at the edge of tbe sanctuary, at the Communion rail, wherever the faithful also offer their gifts. Sung llllass . It . is understood that every priest who joins in a concele­ brated Mass may accept a sti­ !lKlnd for offering that sacrifice.

.Priest's Sermon Closes Forum DETROIT (NC) -A Catholic priest here delivered the final oormon in a seven-week pro­ (.lram sponsored by five Episco­ pal parishes and designed te. bring together "the world and tile altar." '. The series explored the needs of men in the areas of poverty, 1l'1lCe, housing and employment. Msgr. Clement H. Kern, pastor <til. Most Holy Trinity Catholic eburch, well known for his go­ cial action ·endeavors, preached Ute final sermon in the Episcopal Church ()f the Messiah. "The presence of Msgr. Kern" points out our ecumenical Chris­ tian interdependence," said the Rev". John F. Dahl, rectOl' of Messiah church. The Episcopal rector added IllOW that the areas of men's Ifteeds have been explored, "we 1Il0W move into the church to. ooek though prayer and worship, iihe theological guidelines and grace for Christian social action i\n the w()rld."

Ohio See to Have

first Negro Priest

STEUBENVILLE (NC) - Au­ t:Ustus Rutherford Taylor Jr., 26, will achieve the distinction Sat­ urday of being the 'first Negro ordained for the priesthood ()f the Steubenville diocese. Bishop John King Mussio will officiate at the ordination in Holy Name Cathedral. The fol­ llowing day, Father Taylor will offer his first Solemn Mass in the Church of the Assumption, Cincinnati. Eldest in a family ()f seven children, the priest-to-be is. a Dative ()f Lexington, Ky. ~ lItudied at Xavier University and Mount St. Mary's Seminary, Cio­ einnati, and St. John Vianney 'Seminary, Bloominidale, Ohio.

. However, may a priest accept a Sttflg. Mass. stipend f()r a concele­ brated sung. Mass? T& this question, the Vatican Commissim1. of the Council­ which· authoritatively. 3ftswers Mass stipend questions - said "no." The question had been 'asked b:y the Congregation ~ Rites

(which deals with questions on

the Sacraments) if.a sung Mass

stipend could be accepted by

each priest concelebrating a sung

Mass. especially in thbse coun­

tries where the custom prevails

of giving a "special" stipend for

a sung. Mass. . .

_ "Unless the contrary is spe­

cifically indicated," the Congre­

gatiOfi answered, "a person who·

offers a stipend for a sung Mass

intends. this to be celebrated in­

dividually." The pers()nmaking

the offering to the priest would

then have to specifically indicate

"permissi()n for the priest to

offer the requested s.ung Mass

as a·concelebrant.

As men measure a life-s'pan, the age of forty years, six months and twenty-four days seems comparatively short. But this life-span of Right Reverend John H. Hackett, Chancellor of the Fall River Diocese, who died on Tuesday, encompassed a rare combination of talents, natural and , developed and God-given, of virtues priestly and profound. , The measure of this, priest, beloved of God and men, is seen in some of the last words he spoke as' life slipped ,slowly away from him-"God's Will· he .done-and soon." it is summed up in some of the last words he said on earth: "Jesus, MaIjT and Joseph, I give you my heart and my soul ... and my life ... and my life .. '. and my life." For 'give God his life he did., . '. As a young manlJ,with eyes fixed firmly e:m the priest­ hood, as an assistant at St. Thomas More parish in Somerset, 'as a student priest at Catholic University of America, as 'episcopal Secretary and Vice Chancellor and Chancellor­ .always in pis use of his grea:t abilities and his winning ,personality he gave him'stJlf to God. There was no mistake about it-God came first. He cared for people - in God. And he served them - in God. During and after Vatican Council II he would f;lften :remark that the Christian world, in dealing with all its problems, needed abov~ all else patience and charity-vir­ tues which he himself had in almost awesome degree.' In his aealings with the faithful, with his fellow priests, with bishops, he was the man living his life for Christ-a :man somewhat grave in demeanor, with a manner pleasant 'and easily responding to humor, tactfully and patiently and kindly helping others to serve God. And all the while his life was teaching, even more eloquently than his words. , ", On Monday evening one of 'Monsignor Hackett's friends' 'asked him if he were resigned to God's 'Will. And he an­ :swered, with a, calm matter-of-factness, "I have n~ver re­ 'sisted God:s )Vill,'" . The "Gospel according to St. John tells us: "A man , '. " . H" came, sent oy God. HIS na~e was John. , e·came as a WIt­ , ness, as a witness ~o speak for the light, so that everyone : might believe through him." The same ,might in all truth be said of Monsignor Hackett-A nian came sent by God. His name was John. , ' '. '. f r h He came as a;wlt?eSS, as a WItness to speak or the }g t. And so lie, dId. Q

CHRISTMAS r>W£~V;iUJ Role of Woman Seen Confused The only quarrel One has with this book, "The Quite Possible She" by Janet Golden (Herder and Herder, $4.50) is its title. The entire volume, a study of "today's C h r is t ian woman," seems to contradict it. The author sets forth clearly and for the most part indisputably the problems that face the woman trying to give Christian witness in today's world, then gives a few general guidelines that may be of help in some cases, but the general tone is that things are hard indeed. A better title, one feels, would have been "The Very Difficult She." This is not to low-rate this book or the service its author has done everyone who is struggling to get into line with P()st-Con('War thinking on the role of the laity. Jt's really a good thing that the many unsolved problems of the distaff sid!:' of the Church should be thoroughly discussed: this in itself may h!:'lp to iron out some of them.

Subtitled, Saturd<:lY Night Thoughts for Sunday Mass, it's just that, and in a cOllple of pages per Mass manages to be thought-provoking, prayerflll and oftcn very funny. For today's feast of the Imma~­ ulate Conception, for in3hmcf?, Father Fehren muse;,:: "l\'li~.glljrl­ ed devotees of Mar;y use her to scare hell out of people and end up scaring hell into them, making them feel guilt and blame for all thc evil in the world if they do not touch 11 simpering wooden Fatima statue being lugged around the country 'get the Rosary in' every day ('only "takes ten minutes,' said one famous crusader), believe the most bizarre 'revelations' of some women and children. and like a shrewd peasant work up a drag with her by flattering her heart."


"The Meaning of Success" by Michael Quoist ($1.25) discusses man in himself, in his,own life, in his relations with others, 'lOd finally in his Christ-life. Father Quoist is notably practical in his advice, slanlcd TOilinly towards young readers. In a chapler titled "Huw Not To Beo Bus}'," he counsl'~s: "Constantly tell yourself:. for this moment 1 have only one pet'son to deal with, and that's the one who's rigll~ in front of me; I have only one letter to write, the Mor~ }'ormal More formal, but also struc- ,one I'm writing' now; I have (mly tured to corresPond with Sun- one thing to do, what I'm doing hpre and now.

Faces of Faith Are. Shown In Two Current Novels The fait.h has many faces. Two are illuminated in two current novels: "All About. Brother Bird" by Cat.harine Plummer (Doubleday, $4.50) and "The Centurion" by Leonard Wibberley (Morrow, $4.50). Brot.her Bird is a monk who has the g-ift. of levitation, but. far from being a Rource of The author says, '''The Centudon' is more important to me than happine~s to him, it is a anything else I've ever w~itt(m." ~reat erOSR, since because of God's Cr~atures

his habit of suddenly rising from the ground, he has never been able to complete so much as one Mass. How his cross eventually becomes his crown through his great love for a little boy dying of leukemia is a touching story, reminiscent of "Brother Petr()c's Return" or "The World, the Flesh and Father Smith." The Centurion," like uncounted other novels, tells the story Df the passion of Christ, this Lime through the eyes of Longinus, the Roman centurion who was in charge of the crucifixion. Told as if the tale were new, the 8tory of Christ crucified succeeds ·In strikill¢ thC' . reader afresh with the enonnity of the deed.

Sister Seraphim is a RUSSian Orthodox nun who lives in a desert convent in Arizona <and there harbors as many animals as the rest of her community will permit. Her book, "All God's Creatures" (Dodd, Mead, $4.50), is a paean to the animal kingdom and her point of view is best expressed in her own wOI'ds: "Anyone who would be good to animals was in a state of gra.ce, as far as I could see.

form of a series of conversations with a questioning college student. Biographies Too More valuable than outright Bpi ritual reading for many p~o­ pie are biographies of out:-;tanding Christians, which might be termed how-to-do-it manuals for aspirilJg strugglers. No_one could qUf;'~tioll that Eric Gill, Charles Peguy and Pope Paul VI arc outstanding,. and the shll'ks of thC'ir three very different lives are the :,ubjects of three )lew bOOKS. Robert Speaight, lecturer, actor and producer, has written "The Life of Eric Gill" (K:enedy, $6.95) and in it he thoroughly pictures the various, irrepressible, stranJ{e man that was Gill. The book, incidentally, is set in a Gill-designed type fiolce, Perpctua. "Charles Peguy: A Study in Integrity" is by Marjorie Villiers (Harper and Row, $6.50), She documents the life of a man who "throughout his life refused to be annexed. Time and again he sacrificed material comfort, ambaion, friendships and personal happiness to the heroic integrity he showed in his life OlE wen all in his writings." In "Pope Paul VI" (Random House, $5.95), Alden Hatch, well-known biographer of John XXIII turns his pen to the life story of quite another sort of man, but succeeds equally well in showing the reader what eve n t s and characteristics 10rmed the presen t Pope. I n discussing Paul's aloofness in contrast to the warmth of John, he notes, in connection with the papal visit to New YOt'k City, "In Yankee Stadium they were cheering not the Pope but a man, who in one long day had won their hearts. Somehow on his apprenticeship as the servant of' the servants of God, he had at last learned the secret of how to make known his love for his fellow man."

Christmas Books For Children For the youngest readers or even the read-aloud-to's, Herder and Herder offer "The Life of St. Francis of Assisi" and "The Life of the Blessed Virgin Mary," both by Janet Bruce with pictures by Emile Probst ($1.50 each). Although the type seems rather small for little children, the art work in thes,e books is beautiful and striking and the text is easy to understand. "Come to the Family Meal" by Sister Mary Cosma LaPlante, C.S.J., illustrated by Sister Mary Josita B~ccala, C.S.J. (Bruce, $1.25) is a Mass book for the sm<llIest churchgoers, emphasizing that Mass is an action of the family of God and should be approached as a "family meal."

And of recent years the theories and practice of Maria Montessori have been gaining more and more attention ,in the United States.

Menfral Nurture Continued from Page Eleven The topic of C. Douglas McGee in "The Recov~ry of Meaning: An Essay on the Good Human Life" (Random Hou!!e, $5,95) is to discover what actually constitutes a good and human life. Step by step he examines '·'classic and contemporary philosophies," arriving at last at the conclusion that each. man's personal experience must shape his own notions of a satisfactory, justifying life. . "We take our first a'nd lasting model of the world from the family," he writes. "When we are most open, it is our universe; our parents are· the SUil and moon and climate, and they can make the first world their children know into a model of what the world should be." "The Appearance of Man" by Pierre Teilhard de. Char'din (Harper and Row, $5) complements "The Phenorhenon of Man" and discusses the ,nature and spiritual signifieance of hu-. man evolution in terms of receflt fossil discoveries, technical than many of Tellhard's works, it nevertheles's leads to his famous conclusions wjth '. regard to the "Omega point" and the noosphere, although with more scientific buttressing than he deemed necessary in his more directly philosophical·books.

Cardinal Heenan Asks Assistance oOf All Laity LONDON· (NC) - John Cardinal Heenan of West­ minster told his people that all the laity - not just the clergy and a handful of devoted parishioners - must cooperate in the work of their parishes.. The cardinal's pastoral letter

said: "This is the moment for

action. H the priesthood of the faithful is to be more than a pretty phrase, this priesthood must be put to the test. The faithful must. begin their pas­ toral work. They must show themselves as anxious as their bishops and priests to obey the decrees of the Second Vatican CounciL" In an effort to draw all the people of each parish more <closely into the life of the par­ ish, Cardinal Heenan ordered a survey to be taken of all Catho­ lics. This survey, indicating the needs and wishes of the people, would then be acted on by par­ ish councils elected by all pa­ rishioners. Seeking complete honesty in the survey, the cardinal asked the people to "say if you think more could be done for the old, the young and the sick. Don't forget to say what changes should be made and how people who are doing nothing can be persuaded to work for Christ and His Church.



B17ings' Varied Background

To Assignme.nts at Coyle High School' -By Dorothy Eastman The casual observer might be hard put to find anything in common between the teen­ age boys at Msgr. Coyle High School in ']'au nton, native boys in Uganda, Africa, and teen­ age boys living in a New York institution for the emotionally disturbed. But Brother Harold QuaJ.ters, C.S.C., who has had experience with all three groups, says their com­ mon denominator is the ~eed for love and personal atten­ tion. The-young Brother, now a religion teacher at. the

Taunton school, has had a varied and exciting career since he joined the' Holy Cross Order upon graduating from Coyle in 1956. Some of his experiences have been trying and some have been harrowing, but with the ebullient good spirits for which he is well known he can now laugh at even these. He is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Harold Qualters of St. Mary's parish in Mansfield, who are un­ .) doubtedly happy to have him so close to home after his two year stay in Africa. . This year Brother Harold has been coaching the championship track team at Coyle, though he wasn't athletically inclined while a student. He was probably too busy playing clarinet in the band for four years. Difficult Subject During the s~hool day Brother Harold's academic specialty is the teaching of religion. Though he admits this is a difficult sub­ ject to teach to· teen-age boys, he speaks with enthusiasm of the new approach to teaching reli­ 'With Us Always' gion .as a joyful response to "Priesthood begins at theal­ 1"ROM AFRICA TO COYI_E: Brother Harold Qualters, tar," Cardinal Heenan continued, God's love.

Request Urban Renewal Funds ST. PAUL (NC)-A CathoUe priest and two nuns joined aJ group of 31 from this city on II recent trip to' Washington to petition the U. S. Department 0.1/ Housing and Urban Develop­ ment for a federal grant of some $20 million for execution or' D proposed urbim renewal project here. . The Summit-University proj­ ect was initiated last year by. th<e St. Paul Housing and Redevelop­ ment Authority but the city has not yet been able to obtain a pledge of federal funds. They met in Washington with Donald Hummel, assistant secre­ tary for renewal and housing assistance for HUD, and told him of the "urgent need" for renewal in the area . They also read a telegram :t'rom Auxiliary Bishop Gerald O'Keefe of the St. Paul-Minne­ apolis diocese (recently named bishop of Davenport) in support of the project. "This area," Bishop O'Keefe said, "is a won­ derful one in which to live but is on the verge of becoming a blighted slum. This project must move· now." Representing the 1,300-mem­ bel' St: Peter Claver Church in the area was Father Edward FJahavan. The nuns in the dele­ gation were Sister Carmen,· prin­ dpal of St.' Luke's School, and Sister Mary Helen, principal o!I Cathedral School.

Advises ,Laymen to 'Speak Up'

.McCarthy Misunderstands Priests Association By Msgr. George G. Higgins (Dnrector, Social Actieu Dept., NCWC) , When Father William DuBay of Los' Angeles first IIftnounced that he planned to arganize a priests' union, an 0IlterpHsing reporter inimea!ately corn:ered AFL-CIO Presi­ dent George Meany and asked if he"would be prepared to gi'ant a charter to such 'an ly reminds the priests of Chicago 4n.·ganization. My recollectian that ~'the problem is that the se­ @f Mr.' Meany's characteris­ mantic game they are tically blunt reply is rather with Church authorities contains hazy at the moment, but I seem· tOrecall that he dismissed Father ][)uBay's. pro. posal ,out of hand and sug­ gested no doubt with a twinkle in his eye . , that the matter of af­ filiation be re­ ferred to Jimmy Hoffa, president of the Interna­ tional Brother­ hood of Team- . sters. I took it for granted at the time that President Meany was merely having a li ttle' innocent fun at Hoffa's expense. It never entered my mind that the Team­ sters would take his suggestit)(\ seriously. I ·am' now beginning to suspect, however, that perhaps I was being a little naive, for a reCent arti'cle oy·;r~ke McGarthY,',editor of tHe' Missouri. Teamster, pas­ sionately supports' FatherDiJ­ Bay's proposal and severely cag~ ligates those priests who, because of stupidity and/or craven ~r-. vility, refuse to go along with it. It's entirely possible, then, that llhe Teamsters would be willing to grant a charter to a priests union if one were ever estab­ lished, unless, of course, Mr..Mc­ Carthy (as I strongly suspect) was merely letting off a little post-conciliar steam unofficially mnd was speaking only for him­ aelf, . Angry Critic Be that as it may, McCarthy e3mes through in hi!.! article ("Chicago Priests-A Union or lust an 'Association' ") as a very angry middle-aged Catholic whB , is fed up right to here with the American hierarchy, who takes l'J.imself aad the labor movement much too seriously indeed, and who seems. to think that he knows considerably more ,about the Catholic clergy in the 'United States than' he actually ·does. The immediate target of his ever-so-righteous indignation is the recently established Assecia- . tion of"Chicago Priests, of which this writer is proud to be a mem­ ber and about which' he can claim to know a great deal more than Mr. McCarthy has taken the the trouble to learn. The ACP, Mr. McCarthy states rather apodicticaUy, is really a union, but for some unaccount­ able reason the exploited, and downtrodden priests of ChicagCl refuse to call it that. 'S·tupid, Cowardly' This,'he says, is rather stupid, not to say cowardly, on their part, but, then, what difference does it really make in the ,long run, he asks rather indulgently in a rare moment of benign and almost patronizing tolerance. After all, as Gertrude Stein taught us many years ago, a rose is a rose is a rose, no matter what you call it.. So, says' Mr. McCathy, "Who cares about words? 'Association' will do-it does for the International Asso­ ciation of Machil'lists, ·for exam­ ple." . H Mr. McCarthy's unexpected tolerance on this particulaJ!' point is rather gratifying, it is alsO, alas, very short-lived. In tBe very next sentence he impatient­

Why say 'we are above it'? Are they afraid some conservative parishioners will be scandalized, or that 'union' is a dirty word?" , "It seems to us," Mr. McCarthy adds for good measure,- "that if the Chicago priests waht 'success,

TOLEDO (NC)-A theologian' from John Carroll University, Cleveland, has advised the laity:· "You must speak up. Create a vivid, live public' opinion." Father John D. Gerken, S.J., in a lecture here extracted pas,­ 'sages from 'various Second Vati­ .can- Council docum.ents to but­ tress·.his advice. He said the .best passages on the laity', perhaps are to be found in the Decree ,on the Missionary Activity of the Church, in which paragraph' 21 sums up the way a layman is to 'consider him'self in speaking of "a 'laity wo,rthy of the name working' along with the hier­ archy." He also stressed that the De­ cree on Priestly Life and 'Minis­ try states: "Priests must sin­ cerely acknowledge and promote the dignity of th~ laity and the role which is proper to them in the missi9n of the Church.

Spain Freedom



MADRID (NC)-Spain took a step toward religious :l:reedlom when the nation's chief of state, Generalissimo Francisco Franco, announced the introduc:" tion of laws liberalizing the nation's religious and political life. The new laws to be submitted to a referendum early in Decem­ ber, grant government protection to the principle of religious free­ dom, in effect permitting the practice of non-Catholic reli­ gions. This marks the first time since the late 1930s that Spain has approved the practice of any religion except Roman Catholi­ cism. Even under the new laws, however, Catholicism will re­ main the official state religion.. For several years, government enforcement of laws barring other faiths has been relaxed and the piscreet practice of other religions permitted. Even so, many Spaniards were eager for the new laws and are awaiting still other promised laws that will specifically abol­ ish old regulations limiting reli­ gious ireedom. . The liberalization of law.s re­ lating to religion reflects the cautions reorganization begun by Franco to align Spain's pe­ liticallife with the practices and the beliefs of other Western 8ations. Anxious to insure stability when he surrenders control or dies, F I' a n.c 0 has carefully planned a withdrawal from one­ man rule to' constitutional mon­ archy. In the course of his 27­ year rule, the Spanish leader has engineered several laws designed to shift the nation to another form of government. The new revisions in the na­ ti{)n's political code are a step further in this modernization. Delivered by Franco in a 53­ minute speech before the Cortes, the country's parliament, the latest revisions create a premier, chosen by the chief of state for a. five-year term. Currently Franco holds both positions. Other reforms include a wider popular vote for representatives in the Cortes, the expansion 4)f the electorate to include an married women, the increase of the workers" voice in labor ufiiOll operations~ the limiting of the powers of the Falange, the na­ tion'sonly legal political party, and the invitation from Franco for dissent within the nation's political structure. This invitation may be ac­ cepted by many of Franco's 0p­ ponents, formerly imprisoned by the Spanish chief and now re­ turned to political life following a general am'nesty issued in October.


HARTFORD (NC) - Theolo­ gians who condemn evolution out-of-hand were sharply critic­ ized heer in Connecticut for making a judgment in a field about which they know little or nothing. Father John L. McKenzie, S.J., notee. Scripture scholar, has told a gathering of priests, Sisters and lay people that theologians have been too willing to condemn evolution "without really lmow­ inganything about it." Father McKt.nzie, currently visiting professor of Old Testa­ m'ent at "he University of Notre Dame, said that the hypothesis of evo' 'ion "I< no longer sub~ mitted to the criticism of theolo­ gians, nor should it be, any more than the conclusions of theolo­ gians should be submitted to the natural sciences for criticism. The fact is that neither knows enough ftbout the othe,"s field to make a v·alid jud&:ment."

ALBANY (HC)-AttoYneys fOI New York s~de asked that a controversial l.CW law wbich re­ quires public schools to lend textbooks to' parochial school pupils be uph::-!d. The case was argt::ed here before the state Appellate D·v·sion Court. On Aug. 19, Supreme Court Justice T. Paul Kane I'1l!]ed the law violated both state and fed­ eral constituEonal provisions on separation of Church and State. His ruling was stayed by the Appellate D:v;si&n pending the appeal. The state has proceeded with the textbuol~ program,' which went into died Sept. 1. . . After' arguments before five judges, the appellate di~ision took the case under advisement. It is held likely that regardless of the appellate division dee> sion, the case will be appealed to the state's ~:ghest tribunal, thE' Court of Appeals, and the Su­ preme ~:lUrt.

NEW YORK (NC)-The long struggle of women's colleges in this country to the present pla­ teau of eminence was traced by a veteran Jesuit ~ducator here. Father Robert L Gannon, S.J., president emeritus of Fordham University, a chief speaker at the 50th anniversary cqlebration of St. Joseph's College for Wom­ en in Brooklyn, recalled proph­ ecies that colleges for women were a passing fad. He added . that gradua.te schools today are erowded with brilliant women. "The present popularity 0f worx:Jen's colleges in America is -e of the few .encouraging changes that modern times can b~. about," Father Gannon said.

"A long time ago there were seminaries for females, but here in the United States women got in~ college first when they in­ vaded Oberlin as co-eds in 1t133 -tiH'ee years before the Sisters of S1. Joseph opened their firSt American school in Carondelet. "Vassar in 1861 was the first college set aside for women and Trinity in 1897, our first Cath­ , olic college for women-or was it Notre Dame of Maryland. We Statement must let them settle that them­ selves.

Evolution Criticism Is Scored

THE ANCH Thurs., Dec.

"Even after the turn of the century, Catholic public opinion was too firmly convinced on the desirability of such rigorous in­ tellectuality for women," hlol continued. "For example, The Catholic Encyclopedia as late as 1911, carried an article by a learned Redemptorist which sought to reassure the troubled male -of the last generation. 'There is nO need,' he Wrote, 'to fear the ·over-crowding of the academic profession by women * " " Na­ ture has a- regulating power.' " Stresses Liberal Arts hope seemed to be that because of some quota arrangee by nature, the overwhelming majority 'of females would fail in their studies. You know the line, 'women have tremendous intuition but they can't think.' As it turned out nature has fallen 'down rather badly fln the job of re~ulating. Our graduate "Th~

schools are crowded with bril­ liant women," he asserted. Father Gannon said no college can prepare its students for ev­ ery-sort· of vocation "except through the ancient way of the wisdom studies-philosophy, lit­ erature, history, languages and pure science-:;;tudies that liber­ ate the mind, that cultivate in-

telligence, conscience and taste in the light of both reason and Revelation; studies that win convince a girl after four years of college work, that she has just begun her education, just learned to handle the instru­ ments,· just learned how to treat

a book so that she can go on learning for the rest of her .life."

Dr. Charles' O'Reilly, sociolo­ gist at the University of Wiscon­ sin, seconded the idea of a nun running for Congress, and added nuns could do "a better job of . educating' politicians and office holders" in some fields. O'Reilly urged nUllS to take active part in such controversial fields as civil rights and to fight for their rights as women.
