Retired Couples Find Challenge

In Assisting Neglected Boys

NEY YORK (NC)-For many eouples, the "golden years" of retirement offer little more than inactivity. But that's not the case with Mr. and Mrs. John Roughan, who have found themselves with their most challenging task. The Roughans have taken on the work of caring fol' seven of New York's troubled and neglected teenage boys. It all began when the Roughans learned that the Brothers of the Christian School who run Lincoln Hall, a residential school for delinquent boys in Lincolndale, N. Y., were having difficulty locating house parents to stat..: residences for boys in Queens. Like Their Own With a little encouragement

and persuasion, the Roughans decided to give it a try. They were assigned to staff a modem home in a middle-class residen­ tial neighborhood in Flusing at . a starting salary of $6,400 plus room and board. Overnight, they became parents to seven boys. Soon they began to run the home and care for the boys as if they were their own children. Any apprehension or fears they had vanished in their preoccupa­ tion with caring for a family again. "Boys will be boys," says John, "and these are really no differ­ ent from any other boys in New York today. Once they learn you are honest with them, they'll be honest with you. I really don't have any serious trouble with any of my seven boys."

Pontiff Emphasizes Beauty of Mary

VATICAN CITY (NC)-Pope Paul VI' eulogized the beauty of Our Lady on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, remark­ ing that the world has "almost lost the concept of a beauty of such sublimity." Because of this, he told the crowd in st. Peter's Square, and because "we have such desire for beauty, we go around looking for it in exterior human and visible appearances. "But the Madonna provides for us the image of an essential beauty, the interior harmony of the total perfection of her being.

It is the beauty we find in chil­

dren-the beauty of innocence. "This is the beauty we must hail in Mary, and we ought to be glad that it reflects in us, re­ minding us where to look for it •"If • • the world were indeed capable of appreciating this beauty of the Madonna, what torrents of goodness, spiritual energy and joy it would find rising in itself? Let us beg the Madonna, 'totally beautiful,' that she assist us and smile upon us, revealing to us the secret of her life full of virtue." .

Orphans I..earn Donor's Name JACKSON (NC) -For years the St. Joseph Home for Boys here received checks for $20, $25 and sometimes $50 with an un­ signed note asking .that the money be used to buy the chil­ dren oranges, ice cream or cloth­ ing. . The checks were -delivered by Father F. Leon Cahill, Catholic chaplain at nearby Southern Michigan Prison. One day Sis­ ter Mary Arcadia asked who the doner was. "It had been going on for so long that I didn't realize it was a secret," Father Cahill said. He identified the donor as Thomas Bommarito, 70, serving a life sentence for a g"mgland-style killing. Sister Arcadia wrote Bom­ marito and soon he began re­ ceiving cards and letters and Cbristmas cards from the chil­ dren. Recently, Sister Arcadia ift.­ "ited Bommarito to visit the home. "U I asked the adminis­ tration that," he re:plied, "they'd probably place me in a mental ward." But warden GE~orge Krupp didn't think that way. Bomma­ rito was awaiting parole and de­ portation to Italy and Krupp ap­ proved his visit to the l:!.ome. Prayers Answered "It was like mee1:ing my fam­ ily for the first time," Bomma­ rito said. "The boys all knew me by name." Bommarito said he remained anonymous over the years be­ cause he didn't want anyone to think he was try:.ng to make "points" with God through his charity. He had us.ed his prison salary to provide extras for the youngsters on Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving and other holidays. Before leaving for Italy, Bom­ marito said that "many times I thought I'd die in plrison. But the prayers of the Sisters and the kids must have been answered. There is nothing E:tronger than a child's prayer.

Decency Crusade NEWARK (NC) ·-More than 1,OO() adults attended Sacred Heart cathedral here in New Jersey Sunday when Archbishop Thomas A. Boland. presided at the launching of .a crusade of prayer and activity in behalf of decency:

a

consumers' food cooperative in Brazil founded two and a h~ years ago by an American Jay missionary-a request for twcl cash registers to help in the bookkeeping.

The request, reported here by the Latin America Bureau of the National Catholic Welfare Con­ ference, comes from a food co-op established and directed in Ri­ beirao Preto, BraZil, by Ronald Piontek, a Papal Volunteer for Latin America. Piontek, his wife and two children are in Brazil as Papal Volunteers sponsored by the Lafayette, La., diocese. He ma­ jored in business administration at the University of Southwest-

em Louisiana, while his wife ila a medical technologist who stud­ ied at the same school. In Ribe­ rao Preto, Mrs. Piontek runs _ organization for domestic ~ vant girls and conducts a eate­

chism center.

started with the aid of two Bra.­

zilians, serves 1,000 needy pel'­

sons in Sao Paulo state. It is planned as a pilot project with four branch offices to be estab­ lished to serve 12 other towns. The co-op works this way: a member buys one share f(ll' $6, paying 60 cents a month. The share earns six per cent interest. Shareholders are permitted to buy their groceries at the cc­ operative-where food sells at substantial savings.

Cavanagh said t'le members were agreed that the three nov­ els, "Lady Chatterly's Lover," "Fanny Hill," and ''Tropic of eancer," were obscene, despite court rulings to the contrary. The city unsuccessfully has ehallenged these books in the eourts. Emphasizing that the com­ mission has no official standing, the deputy mayor conceded the group was "on delicate grounds." "While we try to influence ju­ dicial determination," he de­ elared, "we cannot pressure a eourt.

Red Protests

VATICAN CITY (NC) -Ig­ noring the demands of the Ital­ ian communists, Pope Paul VI audienced the Congo's premie!!', Moise Tshombe, and voiced again an urgent appeal for peace in that troubled African nation. The day before, the commu­ Dist news paper, L'Unita, had ealled on "democratic and anti­ colonial forces to mobilize against the slaughterer" and to prevent Tshombe from setting foot in Rome. Communist leaders protested Tshombe's visit to the Pope after the Catholic premier had an­ nounced his request for such a visit before leaving Leopoldville. Though the Vatican had not Jet made an official announce­ ment of the audience when the communists protested, L'OsseI'­ vatore Rom a n 0 unofficially pointed out that the Pope could not refuse since normal diplo­ matic relations exist between the Holy See and the Congo. "And besides," the Vatican City daily added, "this visit of­ fers the Holy Father an occasion to renew, in a more direct and eompelling way, his urgent and heartfelt appeal for the pacifica­ tion of the troubled Congolese nation, especially dear to him because of the number of Cath­ olics there and the grave 0b­ stacles sta~ding in the path Gf this country 10 1'0UftC ill 1wfe­ pendeo.ee."

THE ANCHOR­

Hearing BeUs More Than Christmas Treat For Gaughan Family of New Bedford It's the week before Christmas, the calendar tells, And wherever you go, there's the ringing of bells .•• But "hearing bells" is more than a Christ mas season treat for Mrs. Richard T. Gaug­ han of New Bedford. It's a way of life that started almost 14 years ago when Richard. Gaughan and his bride, the . former Mary Muldoon, walk­ ed out of St. Lawrence Church after their wedding. As they started down the steps. they were greeted by a clanging concert from the bells of a fire engine parked on the apron of Fire Station 5 located across the street in what now is C i v i I Defense Headquarters. Richard Gaughan was captain of Station 5. Since that day, Mary Muldoon Gaughan has had more than her share of bells-fire bells, that is. Now that her husband is chief of the New Bedford Fire Depart­ ment, Mrs. Gaughan has more "bells" to contend with-those of the two direct line telephones, one in the downstairs hall and one in their bedroom, that link the chief with fire headquarters 24 hours a day. An attractive woman, with dark hair and a bubbling sense of humor, Mrs. Gaughan laughs as she tries to explain what it's like being married to a fire chief. Cold Turkey "Well, for one thing," she says, "you learn not to plan things. I won't be at all surprised Christmas Day if just as rm putting the turkey on the table he leaves for a fire." Even the older children ­ Kathleen, 12, Ricky Jr., 11, and Thomas E., 6lh-have a set for­ mula to follow if their fire chief father isn't waiting to meet them after catechism or lectures 01' movies. The fonnula: "Wait 10 minutes and then walk to the Center Fire Station," was evolved after Chief Gaughan went off to a fire one day, completely for­ getting that Ricky was waiting for him at the Whaling Museum. Ricky finally got home. So did a red-faced fire chief. Fires aren't scheduled. So neither is a firefighter's time. Mary Muldoon Gaughan dis­ covered that the day :Kathleen was born. Father Gaughan was not pacing the floor in, the fathers' waiting room at St. Luke's that day. He was "work­ ing a fire at the Parker Street dump," she recalls. Now that her husband is chief, his hours are more pre­ dictable, Mrs. Gaughan says. "He doesn't work shifts now'" ...... he's just on duty all the time." While admitting that the fam­ ily sees less of Richard Gaughan now that he is chief, Mrs. Gau­ ghan obviously is proud of her husband. Dedicated Chief "He's very conscientious," she says. "He goes everywhere he's supposed to. There are lots of people these days who shirk re­ sponsibility, but he's very dedi­ cated to the Fire Department and wants to do a good job." Sitting in the comfortable liv­ ing room of the Gaughan home at 761 Rockdale Avenue, Mrs. Gaughan recalled the days when her husband was studying for the exam for chief. "He's awfully good with the children," she said. "If I'm doing something and they interrupt me, I'm likely to say, "Go away now, I'm busy.' But he stops whatever it is he's doing to talk to them." Finally, it got to the point where "he had to close himself in the bedroom to get any time for studying." While the ehildren ~ ~ "&Gine to visit DaddI' lit

"They loved to go and look at the engines and see what was happening," Mrs. Gaughan said. One of the biggest thrills young Tommy has had to date was the day an engine was being taken out for a test run. Tommy was on the sidewalk as it started by and stopped. His lather scooped him up in his arms and Tommy and father rode as far as the comer. . "There's never been a more excited little boy," his mother said. Kathleen walked down the stairs and into the living room to report that 8-month-old Pat­ rick Joseph, youngest firefighter in the Gaughan clan, was awake and ready for company. Then the front door opened and Tommy blew in with his father. Tommy, face red from the cold and with important stories to tell about his after­ noon, trod across carpets with snow-crusted boots. Christmas Surprise Mrs. Gaughan looked and shook her head. "Can't worry about a little thing like that," she said. "Not with three boys in the house." The chief shook off snow and settled down to join the con­ versation. Does he expect his sons to

He obviously was thinking ~f the danger and hardship in­ volved in actually fighting a fire. So the Gaughan boys won't be getting a real grown-up fire engine for Christmas. But there was something in the air that said at least one of the boys will. be getting something to remind him of The Department. What it is is a secret until Christmas morning. . As for Mrs. Gaughan-all she wants for Christmas in this sea­ son of musical bells is a tele­ phone bell that doesn't ring just as the family is s~tting down to Christmas dinner-the bell of the Fire Department phone that will take the fire chief away from the table.

British Economic Crisis to Affect Catholic Church DNDON (NC) The Church in England and Wales, living and developing largely on borrowed money, will be hard hit by the British economic crisis. The government, to prevent a slump in the pound sterling, has borrowed $3 billion of additional" credit from the international banks. To back this move at home it has jacked up the bank rate--the rate of interest charged on bank loans from 5 per cent to 7 per cent. Every diocese in Britain will be affected. Practically every parish will have to take a new look at expenditures. The British banks have al­ ways" with justification, consid­ ered the Catholic Church a reli­ able customer. They have read­ ily lent it money to build churches, schools and other proj­ ects. Though no official figures are published, the Church in Britain must already be paying back with interest quite a few million pounds sterling. As most loans carry interest of one per cent above bank rate, the charge on money borrowed will now rise to eight per cent. And with the banks themselves finding money harder to obtain new loans will be harder to se­ cure. The bishops returning home from their long absence at the ecumenical council and from the International Eucharistic Con­ gress in Bombay may have to review their plans drastically. The demands for more Cathe­ lie school facilities are growing all the time: It is generally agreed that no diocese can afford to cut down on present plans for education. This means extensions to ex­ isting schools or new schools, and, in the case of the latter, the dioceses often have to build them in the first place without any help from the government by borrowing money from the banks and relying on the state to take them on and pay back part of the original cost later.

Yet Another Step The Supreme Court decision upholding the public ac­ eommodation section of the Civil Rights Act of '1964 is yet another step forward in the nation's move to make all its eitizens equal under the ].aw. The section prohibits the refusal of service or- segre­ gation in hotels, motels, restaurants, places of amusement and gasoline stations if their operations affect interstate eom~erce or if discrimination is supported by state action. Those opposed to this section argued that a man who runs a business should be free to serve or to reject any person corning to him. By his standard, a business can be either public or private, depending on the color of the skin of the man doing the approaching and the prejudices or lack of them of the man who opens the business and puts out a sign inviting the public's patronage. The Supreme Court based its rejection of this claim

On the basis that such a course of action by a business­ Owner would seriously impede interstate travel. Of course, the real reason that the section was con­ demned was that people wished to -continue their discrimina­ tion against Negroes solely on the basis of skin color. And the Supreme Court, in making its decision, used the com­ merce clause to assert its jurisdiction over interstate matters while preserving the idea that the individual states have some remnants of sovereignty-a sovereignty that must not, however, endanger the union and a -sovereignty that must not reduce any American to the status of a second­ class citizen. When any state tries to do this under the thinly-disguised pretense that it is exercising its sovereignty, then it ean and should be restrained., ­ Recent events in Mississippi, where any white man can murder a Negro with an overwhelmingly good chance of escaping legal punishment, have s'hown that states - can and do abuse their sovereign power. The Civil War was fought and won to establish that 8uch abuses must not be allowed to stand.

Vietnam Giving not a solution to a thorny and complex problem but rather an analysis of a mistake made by this country, a letter to The New York Times last week stated: "By now I would think it has rather conclusively been demonstrated that, by bringing about the overthrow of Vietnamese Presi­ dent Diem last year, the United States struck a sharp blow at stability in that country. It seems to be clear that the organized Buddhist movement there is, at best, entirely irresponsible and, at worst, Communist-controlled or infil­ trated." It is too bad that this lesson had to be learned at such a price-an agonizingly slow process of war in that. racked eountry and a series of governments unable to gIVe ~he people a sense of solidarity and purpose but on the defenSIve themselves from attacks by students and Buddhist leaders. The Americans in Vietnam must feel especially frustrated . at a situation that shows little signs of being resolved.

This is just one of the many problems besetting the world and facing the government of this nation. Prayers for those in authority are not merely a courtesy but a necessity at this time-for more than human wisdom is needed to effect peace and justice throughout the world.

C"fhnOlA.9h the Week With the ChWlch By REV. ROBERT W. HOVDA, Catholic University TODAY-Mass as 011 Sunday. In the midst"of these days of fast­ ing and prayer, we return to the Sunday Mass. The ember days in season are ecclesiall days, days when the whole Church prays and ooes penance for the sake of the whole Church. In ibis advent time, our prayer must be that the Church on earth reflect and c:ommunicate more adequately thll great real­

ity of the Incarnation and of Christ as the Head of creation. The Church has a "separate" ex­ istence only to convince the world that He is its King, that it belongs to Him, that its fu­ ture is in His hands, TOMORROW-Frid::lY of Ember Week. All that we know as evil in the world, all the realities from which our sense of justice slJrinks, find an answer in His con:ing (First Reading). This -conviction, too, is part of the joy we know as Ch:ristians. It IS 2. long-range view, to be sure, but a view that is not overwhelmed by li:fe's sorrows. Our patient striving for justice may be beset by failures and mistakes, but 5.ts direction is as true as His judgment is certain.

That it was in history, in con­ crete flesh and blood, is made painstakingly clear in the first part of the Gospel lesson: "It was in the fifteenth year of * * * when * * * was governor * * * when Herod was * * * " No mythical figure this, but Some­ one who has a number and a time and a date. What it tells us

in brief, is I suppose, that the Savior was a man. MONDAY-St. Thomas. Apos­ tle. Everything about Thomas was real. His doubt was real. The Christ who appeared to him was real. His commitment of faith, when he finally was able to make it, was decisively real -not an "I guess so," but "My Lord and my God!" The raw material of Christian­ ity is not in dreams nor in phil­ osophies but in the world's events and in time's deeds. All kinds of dreams and philoso­ phies may ensue, but the root and starting-point of Christian faith is a real encounter with a Person.

SATURDA Y OF EMBER WEEK. Mass simplified to the, first and the last two readings. "All mankind is to see the sav­ ing power of God" (Gospel). Even the Egyptians (First Read­ ing) are called by this coming to share in His glory. The world is still a place of struggle. There will be evil times (Epistle) and even an ap­ parent triumph of the wrong. But Christ is Lord and all man­ kind has been accepted for sal­ vation in Him.

TUESDAY-Mass as on Sun­ day. "Let the parent earth bring forth a saviour from its womb" (Entrance Hymn). The world's sin and disorientation could not be considered the parent of this birth. But there was a "good earth" still, despite those defects, to which this supernatural event came not as contradiction but as fulfillment. Salvation, the grace of God offered to man in Jesus Christ, doesn't come to our world as a shock or a repudiation. The world needs it and was made for it.

FOURTH SUNDAY OF AD­ VENT. Even to the very end, Advent is a celebration of the Christian's hope in an ultimate righting of wrongs (First Read­ ing), bridging of valleys and leveling of hills (Gospel). Even to the very end Advent looks toward the end of time, the end of the whole process of crea­ tion. Yet on this last Sunday of the season we are close to the Birth­ day of Jesus Christ and the lit­ urgy does not ignore this fact. Offe:,tory and Communion Hymns, particularly, sing the praise of that coming in history.

WEDNESDAY - Mass as on Sunday. "He will bring to light what is hidden in darkness, and reveal the secrets of men's hearts" (First Re,ading). Clearly this refers to the Lord's judg­ ment. But it is also true that in the coming of this Saviour in our flesh something about that flesh is brought to light, something of its "secret" is re­ vealed. The Gospel is news, but the kind of news that has been in­ tuited and dimly foretold. It is news that fits us and our condi­ tion like a glove.

UniversityHonors Atty. Donovan . CINCINNATI (NC)-James B. Donovan, New York attorne~ was presented with the St. Francis Xavier Medal by Xavier University here in Ohio and likened to the 16th century mis­ sioner-saint for whom the award is named. Father W. Eugene Shiels, S ..J., chairman of the university's his­ tory department, said of the medalist, who negotiated the re­ lease of Cuban prisoners cap­ tured in the a.bortive anti-Castro, Bay of Pigs invasion: "He re­ stored to the 20th century one of the Church's ancient corporal works of mercy that is all but forgotten by modern man-he ransomed the captives at great personal peril an~ sacrifices." Spirit of Saint Donovan, a Fordham Univer­ sity alumnus who also nego­ tiated withSovi~t Russia for the release of Francis Gary Powers, U-2 plane pilot, and two other Americans, was honored at the annual observance of St. Francis Xavier's feast day by the Xavier Alumni Association. The medal has been awarded annually­ since 1954 to a perSQn exempli­ fying the spirit of St. Francis Xavier. He crossed into hostile camps where the language of diplomacy was no longer lij>oken, where hate and hurt inflamed every contact, where reason and right had lost their meaning," Father Shields said. "And by the strength of his spirit, by the words that he found to speak, by the penetrating thrusts of his keen mind, and by the depth of the faith in his heart, he con­ founded the enemies of logie and opened the prison doors."

WASHINGTON (NC) - The' U.S. Supreme Court has refused to review the conviction of a white minister for "interfering with religious worship" by try­ ing to integrate a church in At­ lanta, Ga. The high court turned down without comment -the appeal by the Rev. Ashton B. Jones, 67, who receive¢l the maximum pos­ sible sentence under the law­ 12 months performing public works, six months in jail and a $1,000 fine. It was noted that Justice William O. Douglas favored hearing the case. The sentence was imposed by Fulton County, Ga., superior court and upheld last April by the Georgia Supreme Court. The incident for which the minister was convicted and sentenced occurred June 30, 1963, at the First Baptist church in Atlanta. The Rev. Jones had sought ad­ mission to the church accompa­ nied by a Negro boy and girl and a white girl. -'

Statement on Jews Pleases Convert DETROIT (NC) -A convert from Judaism said postponement by the Second Vatican Council ' of a statement that the Jews are not specifically guilty of the· death of Christ may prove "a blessing in disguise." Msgr. John M. Oesterreicher, member of the Vatican secreta­ riat for Promoting Christian Unity, told the Downtown De­ troit First Friday Club he is confident the council will ap­ prove the declaration at the fourth session, "If the (council) Fathers had accepted the first draft, it would have been just a piece of paper," said the director of the Institute of Judeo-Christian Studies at Seton Hall University, South Orange, N. J. "The fact that it was discussed again and again has entered the public's mind."

To bring it into focus, we at our .house, you at yours, undoubt­ edly received cards last year, and the years before, signed "Helen and Bill," "Gertrude and Pete" and multiplicity of "Mary and Johns." (Ourselves being "Mary and and John," perhaps this hit home more forcibly since over and over again we have signed notes - though not Christmas cards thus - with the egotistical thought that all our friends would know that "Mary and John" meant us.

But he always signs himself "John C." and no­ body could mistake that definite, bold handwriting.". "I know a boy named John," Ginny mused. "But right now, I ean't think of his last name.

After it has been repotted and the, danger of frost has passed, May 15 is a safe date, the poin­ settia may be placed in the gar­ den for the Summer.

The plant Can re­ main in the garden for the Sum­ mer. requiring only a few appli­ eations of liquid fertilizer from time to time and frequent water­ Ing. Before cold weather arrives, ~me time in October, the poin­ settia should be brought into the house where it should be placed' in a sunny window. In order to ensure a Christmas bloom. it should receive no arti­ ficial light after darkness. This means that it should be shaded every evening. If it is subjected. to long periods of light, the poinsettia's bloom may be de­ layed by as much as a month, 80 shading Is absolutely neees­ ~.

Fat her George Hagmaier, C.S.P., professor of religious ed­ ucation at Catholic University in Washington, D.C., said too much emphasis on the soul and the spiritual can be just as cor­ rosive in society as materialism. Thinking of emotions and drives as lower faculties, Father Hagmaier suggested, causes reli­ gionists to assume "that the higher faculties are always in control of the lower; that spir­ itual helps can solve all behav­ ioral illnesses." . The reasons for mentally ill behavior are often rooted not in free choice, but in the disordered emotions of the patient, said the . speaker. BoOt Roles Both the priests- and the pq-

A careful distinction must be made" he added, between the "couch and the confessional pa­ tient. Seminarians must be taught to distinguish between persons who are able to help themselves and make free choices in all areas or just in one and those who need psychi­ atric help." Father Hagmaier stressed the importance of the pre-school years, where the highly impres­ sionable child, "a bundle of feel­ ing," picks up "signals" from his parents and carries them with him. throughout life.

VATICAN CITY-Vatican of­ ficials have denied the report in a Dutch Catholic newspaper that Pope Paul VI has decided to open Vatican files to historians studying the activities of the Holy See in regard to nazi Ger­ many. The report printed in Amster­ dam's De Gelderlander stated that the Pope had decided "in prineiple~ to open the files from the period of 1937 to 1943, pre­ sumably because of recent at­ tacks on Pope Pius XU's actions relating to the' nazi regime and his alleged weakness in not con­ demning t hat government's atrocities specifically. A high Vatican source said there was no plan to waive the existing practice regarding se­ cret files of' this period. All such documents are kept secret 100

Cardinal Cushing Blames Apathy For Crimes

Sister Maureen

Continued from Page One America in 1960. In April of this year she re­ turned for a short stay in order to receive from Cardinal Cush­ Ing the annual award given by St. Luke's Physicians Guild· of Boston for her medical and re­ ligious work in So. America. Sister's Christmas letter ill a word picture of poverty and suffering, but the only message you can read between the lines is one of hope for these brothers of Christ. Julio, aged 42, has leprosy, and while he lives in one of two rooms of his shack, his wife and 10 children live in the other. (And we think Christmas shopping is difficult.) Gilberto has been ill for five years with what is diagnosed as Yaws-yet he says a Hail Mary for Julio. (And we consider sacrifice as the time,.it takes to write our Christmas cards - but only to those from whom we receive one.). When the Fall River nun ar­ rived in .Riberalta, the h()spital had 'ten beds (no wo~der so many suffering must stay at home.) Her hope, after the Bos­ ton award in ·Boston, was to in­ c;rease the number of bed~;to 45. Now Monsignor Harrington and the parishioners of the par­ ish to which Sister Maureen Thomas belonged, are attempt­ ing on the next two Sundays to increase the number of beds in order that the many seriously sick Bolivians might receive the basic medical care. The Anchor feels certain that the Christmas charity manifest­ ed on the fourth Sunday of Ad­ vent by the Holy Name Parish­ ioners in helping one of their own becomes a guarantee of Christmas joy and peace in every home of the parish.

Leper Priest· Continued from Page One Also on the debit side, said Father Sweeney, is a lack of food from United States surplus stocks. "Most of our patients are undernourished and need food as much as medicine. This Win­ ter we will have to use funds for both." Father Sweeney spoke glow­ ingly of Marianum Antigen, a treatment for leprosy developed by Sister M. Suzanne, a French nun, and .lamed in honor of our Lady.

BOSTON (NO) - Richarcl Cardinal Cushing of BostoJ\ blamed the general breaIt. down in public morality fop the 2,500,000 crimes committecl in the United States)ast year. "In this era of luxury fOIl r"me and poverty for others, t~ laws of God and the country are being ignored .and the liberty ~ which we boast is being intefloo preted as a license to do what you want to do," he told 3.500 Boston policemen at the annuall policemen's ball here. "Until we come back to God;"" the. cardinal said, "in Whom our nation, from the time of its birth, has placed its trust, crimtl will increase and multiply." Boston Police J Discussing the local poli.ctl problem Cardinal Cushing said "we can't expect the officers andl men to keep e city clean anell free of crime unless we, the public, stand behind them." . "The Ten Combmandments of God are considered antiquated and no longer binding and ftI youths and· adults ignore these God-made laws, how can we cx.-e pect them to respect man-ma<Qi laws?" he asked. The cardinal decried "the se~ ularistic and materialistic soci­ ety in which we live." He sai. that today it calls for "extraor­ dinary personal heroism for po­ licemen to do their job."

Cardinal Asks Why Criticism Of Church

Thurs., Dec. 17, 1964

Says Academic Freedom Issue At Georgetown

BOSTON (NC)-Richard Cardinal Cushing (J[ Boston complained too many per­ sons today are. using the Second Vatican Council as a "freeway to criticize the Catholic Church." Before the annual meeting of the New England unit of the". National Catholic Educational Association, the Cardinal re­ ferred to an article in a national magazine (Saturday Evening Post), written by a ~oston Col­ lege alumnus who was once an altar boy for the cardinal. Cardinal Cushing did not name the author (Edward R. F •. Sheehan) but said the story por­ trayed the Catholic Church in ferment. Positive Approach The author "has a facility for writing and a nice personality" and "he would go places if he took a positive approach to the Church rather than rehashing everything critical that has been said," the cardinal said. The story is typical of many appear­ ing in both the religious and sec­ ular press today, the prelate added. . . "Actually," s a I d Cardinal Cushing, "the' ecumenical coun­ dl was an opening of the win­ dows, a throwing back of the roof to display the Church ill ..11 its glories." .

Noyel Obscene

HACKENSACK (NC) ..:... The New Jersey Superior Court here bas held the novel "Fanny Hill" obscene and sustained the efforts of Bergen County Prosecutor Guy W. Calissi to ban it in New Jersey. Judge Morris Pashman saId that the 18th-century novel b¥ John Cleland is "sufficiently ob­ scene to forfeit the protection of the First Amendment of the (:onstitution." .~ , ''Free rein should not be given under the guise of constitutional guarantees to vilely depict 'per­ versions and sexual adventures as John Cleland saw fit 200 years ago," Judge Pashman said. "This is not a better highway to a better constitutional world; it is rather the path to decay and decline. The Constitution should not be the sword of a shameful profiteer of filth. It must be the shield to protect our sense of moral decency." Judge Pashman saId that 1ft finding the book obscene he had applied four tests either pre­ scribed or suggested by the U. S. Supreme Court--"social value," "prurient interest," patent offen­ siveness, and "hard-core pornog­ raphy." By all four, he said, this publication fails to measure up to the requisite standard" for First Amendment protection.

~n TV Telecast of Midnight Mass from Washington

Nation to Hear S.hrine's Organ WASHINGTON (NC) -Per­ ·sons throughout the United States who view the nationwide . ~lecast of. Christmas, Eve Mid­ night Mass from the National Shrine of the Immaculate Con­ ception will hear one of· the finest pipe organs to be found anywhere. A gift to the great Shrine here from Francis Cardinal Spellman, the Military Vicar, and from the Catholic chaplains and men and

women of the U. S. armed forces, the organ has many unusual features. The fine musical instTument has been years in the making;

at a cost of some $250,000. It has

been put in place only in recent

months, and will be heard na­

tionwide for the first time on

the Christmas Eve telecast. The

Mass of St. Joseph which will be

sung was written by Flor Peeters

for organ.

While not the largest pipe or­ gan in the world, or, even in this country, the Shrine instrument has the largest exposed divisions

of any organ in America. These parts are in the Ruckpositiv di­ visions which hang against the gallery wall, and these contain more pipes than any similar di­ visions the makers know of. 'Pontifical Trumpet' The Shrine organ utilizes four separate blowing units to supply wind to the pipes. In the gallery over the main entrance to the church are 1%, 5 and 7% horse­ power blowers. There is a 7% horsepower blower in the front chancel organ, high above the floor near the sanctuary. There is a "Pontifical Trum-

pet," which points toward the main altar from a spot above the gallery organ case' above the main entrance to the church. This is made of bronze, and is the first known use of such metal in organ construction. . The contact system throughout the organ is of sterling silver. All cables in the organ are shielded with tin-coated wire to eliminate static in broadcasting. The American Broadcasting Company will televise the Christmas Eve Mass, beginning at midnight, Washington stand­ ard time.

ulty member who believes ~ lost his job because he publishe<t articles critical of the university., Francis E. Kearns, an assistant professor of English at George.. town who joined the faculty in: 1960, has asked the American Association of University Pro.. fessors to investigate "question.. able circumstances surrounding my dismissal." Kearns said he thought George­ town terminated his contract be­ cause of articles he published iIi the Commonweal and RampartS magazines criticizing the atti. tude of the Catholic Church iJ( general and Georgetown in par_ ticular on racial justice and aca-- , demic freedom. However, uni­ versity officials never said the articles were the reason for hie dismissal. I Father Gerard J. Campbell, S.J., who recently succeeded Father Edward' B. Bunn, S.J., as Georgetown's president, made this statement on the dispute:' i "Dr. Francis E. Kearns ·waf notified last June that his fac­ ulty contract would not be r~ newed after the current aca­ demic year. This notice was thll usual one given to younger fac-. ulty members whose service8 were not considered necessary' for the department. This deci­ sion was not based on any pub­

lications of Dr. Kearns durin.

the past academic years." Kearns said that after his ar-o ticles .were published, he was criticized by some older faculty members.

God Love You

Recalls 'Hoodlum Priest's' Work 'With Teen-agers

By Most Rev. Fulton J. Sheen, D.D. Have you ever thought of how many of us during the ChrIst­ mas Season worry about the presents we must buy for those close to us or those who expect one from us and how few of us ever think of giving just one present to someone too poor, too helpless, too diseased, too far away from our luxurious world, to expect anything? And yet, is it not in the giving of the unexpected gift out of Christian charity that our Christmas becomes Christ-like? Numerous agencies provide ways for the generous to give an impersonal present to 'an unfortunate unknown' but Our Lord has provided in His Mystical Body one very personal way-His Vicar on earth's mission fund, the Holy Father's Society for The Propagation of the Faith which aids the needy of the entire world. We cannot aid everyone with a gift, but we can aid him who caD help everyone. In no other form of charity does your money go directly to the Holy Father and so adequately aid his Missions, as by an annuity taken .out with The Society for the Propagation of the F a i t h . . .

. By Rev. Joseph T. McGloin, S. J. There was this man who liked to be called "The Hood­ lum Priest," Father Charles Dismas Clark, S.J. It may interest a few of (or the few) readers of this column to know that this Hoodlum Priest got his start, aptly and helpfully or not, with teenagers! At the time of his tion a few things that others Budden death some months haven't mentioned. back, many fine columns on Hesitant, Gentle Father Clark appeared, and there's no use repeating all that was writ- ten . about him the n. But Father Cia r k was my friend, and I'd like to say a couple of t h i ng s about him which I haven't seen in print. In the days when I was .' scratching 0 u t any writing I did either between classes or during the Summer months, it was my privilege to live in the same community with Father Clark for some six Summers at The Queen's Work in St. Louis. (There were others there who made living at this place a privilege, too--the incomparable and irreplacable Father Dan Lord, the brilliant and witty Father Bakewell Morrison, for instance.)' Many Grateful Neither the movie, ''The Hood­ lum Priest," nor the obits have brought out the tremendous amount of work Father Clark had done with teen-agers­ teaching, counseling, and above all, in retreats. It was common for him to spend whole nights, right up to Mass time the next morning, in the confessional. There are men today who be­ eame, or remained, religious be­ cause of the influence of Father Clark. And there are certainly many more who feel they may well owe the pursuit of their salvation to his influence. As I scanned the columns fol­ lowing Father Clark's death, I noted many details which I knew to be perfectly true. It made sense that five thieves and a murderer had been his pall':' bearers. (He would undoubtedly have noted that a Pharisee had buried Christ, and that thieves and murderers seemed prefer­ able.) ,

I can hear him now saying that aU judges should have to "do

time," so that they would know what they were doing when :-.. they sentenced a man. I can be­ lieve his interview with news­ men when they asked him how he could possibly try to get con­ victed murderers, for instance. released on society once more, and ,his reply that the news­ papers killed more people every day, reputation-wise, than any IIlUmber of murderers. OpPGSIUon Helpful. I can remember his starting Dismas House, and I can believe the fact that only 15 out of the first 1700 to matriculate had re­ lapses-a startling figure when you understand that the usual rate of relapse outside of a place like Dismas House is always 60 to 80 per cent. Yes, all this I can believe, be­ cause I saw much of it first-hand myself. With the truth went the usual exaggerations--particular­ 11' along the line of the opposi­ lion he encountered. Anyone but • vegetable· meets with opposi­ tion of course. And the opposi­ tion to Father Clark was, like everyone else's, quite bearable and even, in its way, helpful. But I've said I wanted to men­

From the movie and from some of the columns, you could get the idea that, since he was a fighter, he was also an habit­ .' ually violent, even trigger-tem­ pered, man. He was not. Invar­ iably, when you heard him begin to address a crowd, he sounded . hesitant and gentle. He was soft-spoken in conversation. True, when he warmed to a sub- ject or had a battle on his hands, he could get plenty determined. Thank God for that. , You might also get the impression that, since he accomplished so much with his Dismas House, he was generally efficient and or­ ganized. Not so. He gave the im­ petus, and he would always have pushed his way through a project. Father Clark always tried to identify completely with those

he worked with. He became a teen-ager with teen~agers, an A:A. with the alcoholics, a G.I. with the soldiers. And when he went all out for his cons, he be­ came one of them, too-sympa­ thizing with them, talking their languagl., and allying himself with them. . Preferred 'Dismas' He begged for these men, and he built Dismas House for them. He himself took the name of Dismas, which he preferred to his baptismal name of Charles, because it identified him with his men. He was often on the defensive about them, so that no one could criticize them to him. Since he did have a chip on his shoulder where his boys were concerned, you could un­ derstandably make the mistake of thinking he was too easy on them or even a pushover. But the fact was far different. I have heard him, on occasion, stoutly defending his boys to a group of us Jesuits, then answering the phone and tearing the hide off one of these same boys for something which called for that sort of treatment. He was a realist. But the cons were his family. And, while we can criticize our own families, we don't want others doing it. And we bend over backwards .especially to bring out their vir­ tues when these virtues are hard to find. CloSe to Christ Another mistake one could . make would be to think that· Father Clark was a do-gooder, a philanthropist· whose heart bled for the poor con. Npt at all. He was simply following Christ's own preference for trying to save not the just, butsinnel'8, for working with the "little people," the "least of my brethren." One night, when I was a newly ordained priest, I came home late with the entire Divine Office to say. It took me an hour and a half at that time to do so. And all the time I sat in the back pew saying it that night, Father Clark knelt in front of the chapel near the tabernacle, not saying his .Office," but united undoubtedly with the Source of his strength. Father Dismas scorned phil­ anthropy and do-goodism, But like the first Dismas, he was close enough to Christ to under­ stand Him and w~at He wan~

Pop'e Sets S,ite For Ma ria n!;

SAN FRANCISCO (NC)-The

4OO-year-old city of Higuey,

Dominican Republic, has been chosen by Pope Paul VI as the site of the Internation;11 Marian Congress, Mall'ch 18 to 25, 1965, according to an announcement of the U. S. office of Marian Congresses here. Construction is progressing on a new basilica In honm' of Mary, and a village of 200 homes which will be turned over to the poor as a living memorial to the Fourth Mariological and Elev­ enth Marian Congresses to be held there. Archbishop Octavio Beras of Santo Domingo said here: "The Church is conscious that we

cannot give attention e,xclusive­ 11' to dead stones, even those of a church dedicated to Our Lady, while the living stones of Christ -which are the poor--are hun­ gry and suffer." A Congress spokesman said Pope Paul called the Interna­ tional Marian Congresses on his own· initiative and chose the Dominican Republic, the first non-European site, for ,the meet­ ings. The Dominican Republic is ealled the cradle of the, Faith in the New World. The first Mass was offered there and the first convent, hospital, univE,rsity and metropolitan See in the, Western Hemisphere we r e es:tablish~d there. The housing project, to be known as Villa Nazaret, is being built under the joint auspices of the Dominican hierarchy and government, with funw; donated in part by American Catholics. The houses Will have three bed­ rooms, kitchen, living room, dinette, bath and covered patio. The Dominican govemment is donating the land wth its engi­ neers direetiIig the con.!ltruction, using in' part the labor of those who win later be hoU&ed in the . new development.

In consideriq an annuity, YOU might ask yourself the fol­ lowing questions. 1) Am I giving it to an institution or a IOcieq that already has much. or am I giving it to the poor who have Dotbing? ~) Am I limiting it to one of the religious societies of the Chureh, many of whom help the Missions, or am I aiding all of them by allowing the Holy Father to make the dis­ tribution? 3) Am I giving it to someone who will invest it on a long-term basis or am I giving it to one, namely the Holy Father, who will allocate It the very year it is received to the hungry and needy people of the world? If you answer the three questions in the affirmative, you will want to know the many other advantages

of an annuity with .The Society for the

Propagation of the Faith.

What is an annuity? Why is it providing more adequately' for Our Lord's poor when given to The Society for the Propagation of the Faith? An annuity is not for people who have extra money collecting dust. It is for those who have adequate money but need it in trust. An annuity given this Christmas is not merely an out­ right present, but a legal agreement whereby in return for a cash gift yoU are provided with a sure and fixed income for life. The amount of your income, returned to you semi-annually, depends upon your age and the amount you offer the Missions. Your gift

benefits you here and now by adding worry-free days to your

life and income tax savings to you now. By removing the annuity

sum from your will, you avoid all estate tax consequences later.

Your thoughtfulness now will provide for your spiritual as well

as your temporal welfare. You will share in the good works, Masses

and other prayers of 300,000 missionaries of every order and con­

gregation. When God transfers you to heaven, your annuity gift

is transferred to the Holy Father who transfers it to the poor of

the world.

This Christmas when 1"011 are receiving Our Lord at Mass,

He will be commemorating His birthday hy suffering with two­

thirds of. the world who are tattered and starvinK. He will be bearing the agonies of eleven million lepers who sti1I need treat­ ment. A gift to those suffering in His My'stieal Body can briq tar-reaching effects in your life, eternity and world. But, most important, through an annuity contract with the Holy Father's mission fund you invest iii the greatest business of the world­ God's business of saving mankind. By taking out an annuity to the SPOF, you are not merely giving to the starving. You are giving to Him, just as the Wise Men who came with gifla on that first Christmas. If you wish to invest your hard-earned money seeurely for

a guaranteed, worry-free income and gain spiritual benefits this Christmas. write for our manual on annuities. giving your date of birth. Our address is: Most Rev. Fulton J. Sheen. 366 ,Fifth

Shimer Junior' High School in Jamaica, Queens, withdrew plans to show the re­ ligious film in the school audi­ torium-after school hours-as a fund raising event. A Walt Disney children's film replaced the scheduled presen­ tatio!\ of "Christ the King," de­ scribed by Catholic Film Dis­ tributors, Inc., as "the story of Christ's passion." The announcement· of the scheduled showing of the film was contained in the newsletter of the school's parents associa­ tion, which was distributed 18 pupils by their teachers. An ad­ mission price of 25 cents was to be ~harged, with parents invited to attend the film showing with their children.

Demands. Huge Missionary Effort for Full Equality

'Very Misleading' Glenmary Home Missioners Question Catholic Population Figures

WA8HINGTON (NC)-A Catholic social action leader ealled here for a "gigantic missionary effort" aimed at bringing equality of opportunity to America's Negro citi­ zens. Father John F. Cronin, 8.8., s'aid that in most of the Dation the battle for civil rights has been "l'argely ''Their problem is more elemen­ won," but at the same time tary: to find a job that can pay enough for decent family liv­ -the battle for equal oppor­ ing," he said.

tunity is scarcely beginning." "What we need above all is a gigantic missionary effort to our inner cities and to our rural slums, comparable to the great evangelizing efforts of Christians in Asia, Africa and the Amer­ icas. Nothing less can meet the challenge of true democracy, true opportunity and a true sense of Christian brotherhood," said Father Cronin, assistant director of the Social Action Department, National Catholic Welfare Con­ ference. College Address He spoke Sunday at Dunbar­ ton .College on civil rights and unemployment as part of a lec­ ture series on "The Sociological Aspects of Contemporary Edu­ cational Problems." Father Cronin said passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and of various local and state laws "marks the beginning of the end of a long struggle for equal rights." "Most of us here today should live to see the day in which America has no second class citi­ zens, no victims of racial dis­ crimination," he predicted. At the same time, he said, an end to segregated practices in public accommodations and housing will mean little to the typical Negro slum family.

Koreans Enjoy Bible Vigils INCHON (NC)-To help in­ still appreciation of the word of God in converts, a U. S. mission­ er in Korea is introducing them to Sacred Scripture through Bible vigils. The Bible vigils-meetings in church at which a priest or lay­ man leads the congregation in re~dings from the Old and New Testaments - have produced an excellent reaction, reports Father Joseph H. Davis, M.M. of Wil­ liamsville, N. Y. During the vigils, the Bible is . carried in procession into the church and enthroned. After the Bible has been incensed, selec­ tions are read. Following the reading, a short sermon is given, followed by a period of silent meditation. The vigil is con­ cluded by a hymn in common, or by recitation of a Psalm together. Father Davis reports that re­ actions to the vigils vary. "For some people," said the Mary­ knoller, "these Bible services are strange and difficult to com­ prehend. But for most of them they are wonderful experiences."

"It was beautiful, Father, I never heard these words before; they are surely God's words," one Korean said to the missioner.

Remedial Reading Program

NEWARK (NC) - A Negro apostolate parish here in New Jersey has received a $10,000 grant from the Victoria Founda­ tion to conduct a remedial read­ ing program. Msgr. Thomas J. Carey, ad­ ministrator at Queen of Angels parish, said the program would be launched in July with 150 students, he added. Plans call for continuing the program three years to reach at least 750 children who are two years or more below their proper grade level in reading, Msgr. Carey said.

Father Cronin IWted that the struggle for equal employment opportunity "is gaining ground daily" and said there is "actu­ ally a shortage of skilled Negro labor today - many firms are looking in vain for such work­ ers." He said this points to the fact "the real problem is lack of edu­ cation and often lack of incen­ tive." "Slum homes and slum schools" he said, "do not usually produce the drive for study and advancement. On the contrary they give us more than the nor­ mal share of dropouts and vir­ tual illiterates." He commended person-to­ person efforts to improve educa­ tion and create incentives among the poor, including tutoring pro­ grams conducted by college stu­ dents, the new Volunteers in Service to America established under the war on poverty pro­ gram, and neighborhood centers run under the auspices of churches and other groups.

GLENDALE (NC) - Figures about the U. S. Catholic popula­ tion are "very misleading," ac­ cording to the Glenmary Home Missioners. Their research center here said '. that while one out of every four people in the U. S. is a Catholic, there are large areas of the country where the Church is virtually unknown. The center staff prepared a map showing 20 rural dioceses containing one-fourth the na­ tion's total population but only three per cent of the Catholic population. In these dioceses, mostly

southern, only one out of 25 peo­ ple is a Catholic, "a much small­ er proportion than in Africa," it was stated. 'Big-City Church' "In actual practice, the Church in our country is for the most part a big-city Church," the center staff stated. The Home Missioners, whose national headquarters and major seminary are located in this Cin­ cinnati suburb, work in the rural areas of the U. S., where they esf;<lblish new diocesan parishes. Their goal is "to make the Cath­ olic Church available to every American."

Expect 33 Prelates At Chicago Meeting CHICAGO (NC)-Three car­ dinals and 30 archbishops and bishops from the U. S. and Latin America are expected here for the second annual Catholic Inter­ American Cooperation Program from Jan. 27 to 29, Albert Car­ dimll Meyer of Chicago said. CICOP, founded in 1963 to alert U. S. Catholics to the so­ cial, economic and religious problems of Latin America, drew more than 2,000 partici­ pants to its first meeting.. Cardinal Meyer said: "Our Latin friends come as teachers. The large number of Americans who will attend come to learn how best to provide all the help which can be spared for work in Latin America. We have a common hemisphere, common ocean boundaries, in general part a common faith. As brothers, then, we must become closer in understanding and love. It is my hope that the CICOP meeting will provide another large step in this direction."

Catholics Take Part In Religious Exhibit TAIPEI (NC)-A Catholic ex­ hibit has been attracting partic­ ular attention among the esti­ mated 15,000 persons who daily flock to a Religious Cultural Ex­ position being held here on For­ mosa.

A small section of the Catholic exhibit is devoted to the "cap­ tive Church" on the Chinese mainland. Pictures of those who died or are still imprisoned by the Chinese communists are en­ twined with barbed wire. Other sections show Mass vestments and photographs of the ecumen­ ical council. Other exhibits are set aside for Protestants, Moslem, Buddhists, Taoists, and Confucians.

Italian Pilgrims BURBANK (NC)-Some 3,500 members of the Italian Catholic Federation have made a pilgrim­ age for the intention of Christian unity to the top of Mount Raph­ ael to a small chapel which was built by St. Frances Xavier Cabrini, first U. S. citizen-saint, when she worked here in Cali­ fornia. Mother Cabrini died in 1917 and was canonized in 1946.

Continued from Page One tion does not fulfill State law. Chapter 76, Section 1 of the General Laws states that prhate school pupils 'shall be entitled to the same rights and privilege.; as to transportation to and from school as are pmvided by law for pupils of public schools.' The same section' presents tbe pur­ pose of this provision, '••• to protect children from the haz­ ards of traffic and promote their safety'." "Since the Town of Berkley has no high school of its own and. must transport its public school students out of town to another school, we maintain that private school students should be ac­ corded the 'same rights and priv­ ileges.' It seems quite clear that the purpose of the law, to pm­ mote safety, can only be fulfi1led b~' actually transporting the chil­ dren to and from school. We con­ tend that the present School Committee policy of oniy offer­ ing parents of private school ... children a sum of money equ31 to the per pupil cost of transpor­ tation but otherwise leaving them to shift for themselves ful­ fiUs neither the spirit nor the letter of the law. Whenever the law and the courts refer to this matter, they speak of transporta­ tion to and from school, and nowhere provide for a substi­ tute such as reimbursement." "Consider what the Town pro­ vides for public school ch:ldren. It lay~ out carefuuly planned bus routes, it arranges detailed bus schedules, it provides well equipped vehicles which must meet rigid state standards, it secures competent drivers, it sees to it that all the children are properly insured. All of this is co-ordinated by a trained su:' perintendent of schools, and could not possibly be done by an individual parent. But the Town has similar obligations to its children who attend private schools. These obligations it claims to fulfill, not by any of the above efforts, but by a sim­ ple, inadequate cash reimburse­ ment to parents. ':an it be rea­ sonably claimed that the Town is exerting as much effort fo!' the safety of private school chil­ dren as it does for public school children?" "Actually, 'per pupil cost' of transportation is a statistical average which is helpful in ad­ ministration, but which does not reflect real life situations. The Town does not pay exactly the same cost to transport each of its public school pupils. Some live greater distances from the school, and obviously, it costs more to transport some children .-.»: than others. However, everyone grants that this should be dor..e, since it is the actual transporta­ tion, not the per pupil cost, that saves lives. We suggest that the same applies to private school ehildren. It would no doubt cost the Town more to transport these children. If, however, one of these ch:ldren were struck down while walking to school, it would .indeed be little consola­ tion to know that he had been offered the per pupil cost of transportation. "Secondly, we feel that your decision is not in the best inter­ ests of the Town. Apart from transportation, the Town pays $490 in tuition fees for every child who attends the Dighton­ Rehoboth public regional high school. The Town does not, of cOurse, pay tuition for students in parochial school, and could not de so legally. Thus, every child who attends a parochial school actually saves the Town 4490 each year in tuition ex­ penses. Therefore, even though it might cost the Town more ta .rovide transportation, t his

would be more than supplied for by the saving in tuition. In­ deed, it would seem that ,the Town would want to encourage this kind of saving of the tax­ payers' money." "Finally, we urge that fair consideration be given to the rights of taxpayers in this mat­ ter. The' U. S. Supreme Court has clearly established in the Everson Case that transportation is not a direct aid to religious education, but a normal func­ tion of the state's police power in providing for the safety of its children. The parents of the children attending the parochial schools in question have exercised their constitutional right of freedom of choice in ~ucation, and are quite willing to assume the total cost of that education, thereby relieving the Town of its re­ sponsibility. All that they are asking is their fair share-not of educational assistance - but of a necessary health and safety measure in the transportation of their children. We are confident that fair-minded fellow citizens would not have them deprived of their right." Sincerely yours, (Rev.) Patrick J. O'Neill Superintendent

Present Newman Letfer to School MASON CITY (NC)-A letter by John Henry Cardinal New­ man disputing a claim that he was an inept disciplinarian as a teacher' has gt:en presented to Newman High School here in Iowa. The !etter was given to the high school by John MacNeider of the Northwestern PGrtland Cement Company. It was written by Cardinal Newman, famous 19th century British convert churchman, late in his career to the Daily News newspaper as a reply to one of his former pupils at Oxford, who wrote in his memoirs that the youthful Newman was un­ able to maintain order among his students when he was a tutor. Discourteous Account Wrote Newman: "I am Sorry that, at the end of ,nearly 60 years, he should not let by-ganes be by-gones. I have never said a word against him,and his ac­ count of me is as discourteous as it is utterly unfounded. If I were as cowardly as he represents, I never ought to have been a ('~llege tutor. "The truth is, when I came into office, the discipline was in a very lax state, and I, like a new broom, began sweeping very vigorously • • • This roused the indignation of certain high and mighty youths, who • .... did their best to oppose me and to spread tales about me. I don't consider that • .. • I got the worst of it in the con­ flict; and what Lord Malmes­ bury calls 'helpless resignation' .... * I interpret to have been the conduct of a gentleman under great provocation."

Hanewich Sees Feehan High As Future Sports Power

Spirit E~thu~es Forme!' BC St@r

By Fred Bartek "We may not have the enrollment of boys that 'ft W<)uld like but we make no apologies for that. Weare in a class, which we voluntarily joined, and, we mean to make every effort to 9tay with the lead,ers in that class." That is the summary of Coach enrollment," said the former Chet Hanewich who has just Eagle who played at Newton completed his first year as Heights under Coach Mike Holo­ head grid mentor at Bishop vak, now coach ot the American Feehan High School in Attleboro in the Bristol County League. ''Catholic sec­

ondary educa­

tion was new

to the north­

western section of this diocese when Feehan High was es­ tablished. 0 u r regional school continues to grow and our boy - enrol.l1Jlent is bound to grow with it. And, as the school moves ahead, you can look for the name Feehan to gain much

more favorable publicity on the

sports pages of your hometown newspaper." "We think we did pretty wen this year in our first year in the Bristol County League," the former Boston College end and fullback asserted. "True, we had our ups and down. But, all in all, we feel satisfied with the prog­ ress of the team. We have four boys who are being sought after by Eastern colleges." That· speaks for itself, especially for members of a club completing their first year against seasoned campaigners in a well establish­ ed county school league. "The potential is there at Fee­ han High. You just have to-look at the type of game we played against Durfee Of Fall River and Stang of North Dartmouth," Hanewich pointed out. Will to Win "Our boys have the will and the desire to win. The rest will come with time, practice and competition," the former Brook­ lyn Dodger-owned player de­ clared. "We are overcoming tra­ ditionalism in some families, too. Boys at first were somewhat re­ luctant to go to Feehan because they wanted to graduate from 'the same high school as their fathers. This feeling has changed radically. Soon we expect our boy-enrollment will not only equal but will surpass the girl

Basketball Tourney Set for Dec. 28-30 ARLINGTON (NC)-A field of eight high school basketball teams from three states and the District of Columbia has been picked for the fourth annual Christmas tournament Dec. 28 to 30 at O'Connell High School in this Virginia suburb of the nation's capital. Brother F. Damian, F.S.C.. tourney director, said the field

is composed of defending cham­

pion South Hills Catholic, Pitts­ burgh; West Catholic, Philadel­ phia; Calvert Hall; Baltimore; St. John's, Washington, D. C.. and O'Connell,' all Christian Brothers' schools; Landon, a Bethesda, Md., private school, and St. Stephen's, Alexandria, Va., Episcopal school.

Football League Patriots, "And when we .reach this point, you can look for better Feehan clubs who will be in the win column more than we were this past season." Prospects Bright "I do not mean to create the impression that we are apologiz­ ing in any way. As a matter of fact, I think we did exceptionally well for a beginner with a lim­ ited boy enrollment. We are assured the nucleus of a good club next year," said the astute Attleboro mentor who started his athletic career in baseball and football at St. Raphael's Academy in Pawtucket before he matriculated at the Boston Jesuit College. . "The ebullient display our boys manifested in the second half of the Thanksgiving Day game against our southern re­ gional high school rivals is a barometer, I am certain, of the things to come at Feehan," as­ serted Chet Hanewich who gained his coaching experience with LaSalle Academy in Provi­ dence, as an assistant and at Barnstable High on Cape Cod as a head coach. . "For a time on Thanksgiving Day things looked somewhat bleak. But, the spirit and enthu­ siasm of our boys was never dampened. They went out on a spree that brought us, at one time, within a touchdown on the scoreboard. It took intestinal fortitUde and our boys showed they had it," observed the Attle­ boro grid mentor who also di­ rects the school baseball club. Guidance Teacher "So you can see why I said earlier that we will be in the

Maryknoll Grads Have Reunion MOLINA (NC) -More than 300 people from all parts of Chile assembled here recently for the annual homecoming of the Maryknoll agricultural school. The group, consisting of grad­ uates and parents of students at­ tending the school, watched a demonstration of the school's farming equipment, went on a tour of the buildings and exam­ ined the latest plastic classroom teaching aids from the United States. A soccer game between the ex-students and the present ones provided the day's enter­ tainment. The agricultural school, staffed by Maryknoll Brothers and Chilean professors, teaches 150 boys. Classes covering most phases of modern farming last 10 months. G'raduates of the shool have little difficulty in finding jobs since there are more vacancies in farming posts· than there are graduates.

and guidance teacher to them all, as he helps them to solve their own problems concerning the college of their choice. He has been instrumental, too, in interesting some colleges to evaluate the potentialities of some players he thinks are deserving of con­ sideration for a collegiate ath­ letic scholarship. .Hanewich, who like his close friend and former associate Carlin Lynch, is another who oper­ ates on the theory that the best football player is no good to a team if he is delinquent in his studies. "And, our principal, Sis­ ter Mary Urban, keeps a close

eye on the academic standing of every member of every athletic squad at our school. Sister Urban is as interested, in seeing her students further their education by going to college. Sister Mary Urban is our best sports booster," observed the Pawutcket native who kept up his own athletic career until a few years ago. Won Six Letters Hanewich, who earned three football letters at Boston Col­ lege, also corralled three baseball letters at the same Jesuit insti­ tution. After he graduated from BC, he played baseball for Mon­ treal in the Canadian Coast League? a semi pro loop. The Feehan coach, who started out as a math teacher at LaSalle in Providence, later entered private industry as a mathemat__ ical engineer for Pratt-Whitney in Hartford. He returned to teaching at Barnstable High and during his stay at the Cape he played in the fast company of the Cape Cod League, in which many present day major league stars once played. He switched to diocesan teach­ ing and coaching the third Year that Bishop Stang High School was in operation. He worked under Lynch as an assistant grid coach and he was the head base­ ball coach. The diocese engaged his services for the second re­ gional high school when Feehan. embarked on its own athletic. program in the Fall of 1962. He married the former Anne Higgins of Pawtucket in 1956. They are the parents of four boys. The Hanewiches belong to St. Theresa's parish in South Attleboro where Rev. Gerald Chabot is pastor.

Plan Interchange Of Church Visits NEW ORLEANS (NC) - An interchange of church and syna­ gogue visits which brought home to New Orleanians last year the meaning of ecumenism will be repeated here and held for the first time in Baton Rouge this January. Known as "Operation Under­ standing," the program a year' ago resulted in more than 40,000 persons visiting houses of wor­ ship. In New Orleans, the exchange of visits will be dedicated to the memory of New Orleans Arch­ bishop Joseph F. Rummel who died Nov. 8. Interested persons who 30m in the visits will have laymen guide them through the churches and synagogues, explaining ob­ jects and ceremonies. No services will be involved. In New Orleans, the program will last for four weeks. In Baton Rouge it will continue three consecutive Sundays.

Explains Mass in Vernacular

For U.S. Servicemen Overseas

OXFORD (NC)-Mass in the vernacular has particular signi­ ficance for those American ser­ Vicemen around the globe who have been attending Sunday Mass in nearby towns and for :Whom Latin has seemed a touch ef home. Now that the national lan­ guages are being used the ser­ viceman who doesn't attend Mass on his overseas base gen­ erally finds it less easy-unless he happens to be stationed here in Britain where the language is roughly the same. Father (Lt. Col.) Raymond F. Coleman, USAF, chaplain at Brize Norton aid base in the Ox­ fordshire countryside, discussed the new vernacular for Ameri­ cans, and compared it with the version in the English parishes around the base. For the two Sundays prior to the first Sunday in Advent when the vernacular was introduced, Father Coleman celebrated Mass in the base chapel facing the eongregation of Air Force per­ sonnel and their families.
