'CoS­ grove said, must come from the bottom up, not fro~ the top down. He said any diocesan council made up of clergy, Re­ ligious and laity should flow from a pastoral plan "and pal'­ ishes must first determine their plan, their apostolate." Refering to his own parish, the pastor pointed out that the apostolate of the. 14 t() 21 age group was highly important. :"Priests feel that leadership and ~derstanding must be ,created among the young. ,But ,the par­ ish has a large number of llged, and they too muSt receive a,Uention."

BONN (NC)~The communist regimes of eastern Europe have aparently abandoned their ilt­ tempts to abolish Christian fes­ tivities, and this year church­ going, gift-giving and, family celebrations will mark the feast day. . In the attempt to do away with the feast, the authorities had tried to replace Santa Claus with a Soviet~style Father Frost and called Christmas the "Win­ ter Holiday." . An indication of how thirigs have changed is that when East German'y this year abolished most religious holidays through­ out the year to compensate for the introduction of the five­ day working week, ,it did not

However, not all news is good in East Europe this Christmas. Although there are more toys and other gifts and a better 'choice of Christmas foodstuffs, prices have also risen.

One dark cold night long ago Mary and Joseph were traveling from Nazareth to Bethlehem. When they arrived it was late and there was no room for them in any inn. They didn't know what to do,' but at last a' kind innkeeper said they could sleep in his stable. They hurried to the stable a..nd there the Baby Jesus was born. All the angels kn~w about it and a special star began to shine. But no one on the earth knew what had happened. So what do you think God did? The 20 pictures for the Christmas story were ·taken at Nazareth on the Cape in Hyannis.

LISLE (NC) -The B.enedic­ tine monks of St. Procopius ab­ bey have broken ground for a $2.5 million church and monas­ tery here in Illinois, their first home in 80 years. The monks have lived in the administra­ tion building of St. Procopius College since its foundation.

The chapter on economic lImd social life in V3ltican II's Pastoral Constitution on the @burch in the Modern World Gncludes two paragraphs on the llIight to organize and the right ~ strike. Some months ago, in IDscussing the pastoral consti­ ¢Ution in this column, I called mtention to the fact ·that a few ~ the bishops Ilmd urged dur­ IlDg the last I:lession of the Council, t hat !\hese two para­ igraphs be elim­ lb1ated from the !final draft on iDle grounds that !the 'right to or­ ganize and the aght to strike have been stated ISO often in social Church iOOcuments and are now so wide­ ~ recognized in practice that ihere really wasn't any need for' ifhe Council to say any more about them. _ I suppose there wag some­ thing to be said for this argu­ ment, but personally I am very happy that the Council rejected 1& and decided to ream rm the light to organize and the right • strike. Confirm Statement I say this because the record ~ show that these two rights are not yet universally recog­ mzed, even here in the United States, to say nothing of Latin America and other less indus­ trialized and less economically developed hemispheres or con­ tinents. I have just COme across tw~ books, published almost simul­ taneously in recent weeks, which more than amply confirm this statement so far as the sit­ uation in the United States ia eoncerned: 1) "Delano: The Story of the California Grape Strike, by ~ 0 'h n G reg 0 r y Dunee (Farrar, Strauss· and Giroux, New York, $4.95); and B) "Labor in the South," by F.

THE ANCHOR-Diocese of Fall River-Thurs. Dec. 21, 1967

1'/he Mysflell'Y ()f


St. Paul wrote to his disciple, St. Titus : "But when the goodness and kindness of God our Savior appeared, then not by reason of good works that we did ourselves, but according to His mercy, He saved us ..." . The lessoil of Christmas-of the crib, the straw, the' oold, the animals, the cave, the loneliness, the threat of Herod-the lesson of Christmas is this: the m~rcy of the Father to His children, to those whom He created. At a certain moment in time, the Father creates a' soul and a human being is brought into existence. And the wondrous mystery of this creation is the love of God for what He has made.· Such is His love that his Son, the Second Person of the Most Holy Trinity, annointed humanity for all time by taking to Himself a human body and soul and becoming man. The birth of Christ, the life of exile on eai·th, the public life so filled with the indifference of others, the betrayal, the suffering, the cross, death-all these spell out for mankind in the very Blood of Christ the love of the - Father that He would deliver the Son for the salvation of all men. And they tell of the love of Christ, that He would shed the last drop of Blood for His brothers and sisters in need of God's pal;don and rp.ercy. The great mystery of Christmas is the mystery of mercy. It is the mystery of the love of God for those who are so often unlovable, the mercy of God to those who de­ serve it so little, the gift of God-His Son-to those who are so unmindful of the majesty of such a Gift.

More wonder! An angel appears a.nd tells the shepherds of the birth of Jesus. "This sholl be d sign unto you." he says. "You shall find the infant wrapped in swaddling clothes and laid in a monger."

The calendar year hurtles to a close and almost as rapidly do autoists seem to be hurling themselves or otpers i,nto. eternity. The statistics on automobile accidents and fatalities have risen at a truly alarming rat~ here in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and the cqmbination of wintery weather and f~!st-approaching holidays seems to promise it-record death rate for the current year. Hardly a thing for the citizens' of the State to be proud of. And yet-they alone can do .something about it.

Tile :Christmas Story

It is strange how a youth will not 'be 'trusted to make, aU sorts of serious decisions, will not be allowed to parti­ cipate in all kinds of community offices. And yet this same youth is licensed at the age of sixteefl to drive a couple, of tons of steel and glass and Ewer-present danger and potential death. It does not occur to most parents to deny hii'n this privilege, or to restrict it or' to supervise it. Indeed, many a mother is working in a shop to pay for a child's car or insurance.

Now at this time Caesar Augustus issued a decree for a census of the whole I -world to be taken. This census - the first - took pbce while Quirinius was governor of. Syria, and everyone went to his own toWn to be registered. So Joseph set out from the town Of Nazare~h in Galilee and traveled up to Judaea, to the town of David, called Bethlehem, since he was of David's Hou'seand line'!..1! oider to be registered together with Mary, his betrothed,who was ~ith child. While ~hey were there the time came for her to have her child, and she gave birth to a son, her first-born. She wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger because' there was no room for them at the inn. In the countryside close: by there were shepherds who lived in the fields and took it in turns to watch their flocks during the night. The angel of the Lord appeared to them and the glory of the Lord shone round them. They were terrified, but the angel said, "Do not be afraid. Listen" I bring you news of great joy, a joy to be shared by the whole people. Today in the town of David a saviour :has been born to yoJ; he is Christ the Lord. And here is a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger." And suddenly with thc angel there was a great throng of the heavenly host, praising God and smgmg:

The always thought-provoking Harry Golden - the - editor of the newspaper with the highly unlikely name of The Cilrolina Israelite-has suggested a novel answer as to what to do about the mass slaughters by the recklessly and carelessly driven automobile. Quoting another newspaper friend oj' his, he suggested that the car be put in jail in­ stead of the driver. A brilliant and practical solution! Many an otherwise sane person becomes a monster behind the wheel of a car. And even if this person were put in jail he would not be deep1s; affected but would spend the time dreaming of the nice shiny car waiting C'omfortably for his return. So why not put the car in jail. If the driver were home and the automobile were impounded, think of the results! It might be worth a try. .

Mr. Dunne's brief account of (fue recent California grape c1rike is non-technical journal­ I2n of a high order. It makes for wcinating and almost effortless r:eading. Mr. Marshall's study is much ronger, much more technical Iilnd accordingly more difficult to read. Difficult or not, how­ over, it is required reading for anyone with a serious interest m the social and economic problems of the South and the future of labor-management re­ btions in that very rapidly changing section of the coun­ try. Mr. Dunne, in telling the story of the Delano strike, calls the mots as he sees them and leans over backards to be fair to both sides. On balance, how­ ever, he is forced to conclude Blat the growers are hopelessly out of touch with reality. "They think that they are fighting Cesar Chavez," he writes, "but they are fighting \lime and they do not know it­ amd there is no more ruthless w relentless an enemy." Doubts Success Even at that, however, Mr. Dunne is not too optimistic about the future of Chavez' or­ ganizational drive. Chavez is admittely something of a genius when it comes to organizing fatom workers. As a matter of fact, he is the only man in the history of the American labor movement who has ever suc­ ceeded in establishing what would appear to be a farm workers union. In Dunne's opinion, 'however, even Chavez will probably not be able to overcome the fierce opposition of the growers-and the threat of mechanization­ _ort of a bitter and very costly .truggle. Mr. Dunne reports that, as he left Delano at the end of the «rape strike and prepared to write his fascinating book about the strike, he' "could not heljt but think that it would be !l long time before Nosotros Vin­ eeremos ("We Shall Overcome") became the song of the Great Central Valley. Labor in South Dunne's qualified pessimism with regard to the future of Chavez' union is probably well founded-which suggests to this wri tell' that those few bishops who thought there was no long­ er any need for the Church to t>lpeak out in support of the right to organize and the right to strike were badly mistaken. Mr. Marshall's detailed study of the history of organized lab9r I!n the South-to the best of my knOWledge, the only book of its IIdnd on the market-also tends iio support this conclusion. To be sure, Mr. Marshall is !!lot completely pessimistic about the future of trade unionism in Turn to Page Ten

Greater Seclusion For Trappist Apbot

By Joseph and Marilyn Roderick

TRAPPIST (NC)-Abbot M. James Fox'i>f the Abbey of Our Lady of .Gethsemani here in Kentucky will leave his post Dec. 30 "to take up a life o£ greater silence, solitude and se­ clusion on the property of the monastery." Abbot Fox, 71, has been a Trappist superior for 23 years. He served four years as superior of the Trappist monastery near Conyers, Ga., and has been in his present post 19 years.

Expand Parish Schools

FLINT (NC)-8piraling con­ struction costs have made it necessary to abandon plans to build two new Catholic central high schools in this ,Michigan city. Instead., two existing parish hIgh schools will be modern­ ized" expanded and converted into central schools.

LANSING (NC) - The three major religious bodies in Michigan have joined .in supporting the right of the ltate Civil Rights CommissiOll tID enforce the state consUtuti~ IPlti-discrimination provisions III bousing matters. The ,MichIgan Catholic C0n­ ference, the Jewish Comm~ Council' and the Michigan COUD­ ell of' Churches jointly filed • friend of the court brief with the lIIichigaI! Supreme Court in • case mvolvlng n Negro school prindr;al who was refused a home 'because of, his race. The :Qivll Rights Commission .ubsequimtly ordered the seller - a real estate developer - to end discrimination and consider applications by Negro buyers. The developer then brou,ght Ait, charging that the Civil Rights Coinmtssion had no pow­ . . over such eases, and that the ~te constitution-which guar­ entees the right of people to blQ', lIlill and rent real estate without discrimination-also required an _ of the legislature before the provisions could be enforced. The reason for the Negro's IIejection is not issue; In hearings before the Civil Rights Commission the sales agent ad­ IIlitted that color was the issue because "it wouldn't be adV8D­ tageous to the subdivision from MIl' business standpoint." Clear IIlten& In their brief, the three reB­ lIous agendes argue that Ill­ Ibough the ClODBtitution-adop60. ell in 1963-directed the legi.fa­ tare to P8llll legislation ill lreeping with the anti-diserimi­ aation sections, its clear intent ~ not 110 clen;r rights granted .mil the laws were passed.

' The brief. howe:ver, pointed eat that three attempts to make . 4hi provision expUcit in the .nstitution failed. The brief also noted that in " Gte same section granting the I'1ghts, the constitution created the Civil Rights CoIDmission, and charged it with the dut)­ to "investigate alleged discrim­ ination" and to "secure equal protection of such civil rights without such discrimination." The conatltution says the eommission must act Kin a maD­ .er' which may be prescribed

The cost of erecting two new central high schools to serve some 4,000 students in the Flint area had been estimated at close to $10 million. A fund drive 00­ gun last March has thus far reached only $4.6 million in contributions and pledges. Under the new plan, the two existing schools wiU be.. con­

verted for an estimated $4 mi1­ lion. They will enroll 2,800 stu­ dents. Seven parish high schools WIll be closed when the converted Catholic central schools are opened in September, 1970. Father William F. Meyers, Lansing diocesan superintendent for education, said the revised plan has his full support and will equal the discarded plan for high, standards of curricu­ lum, administration, facilities and staffing. "We want to ,teach children," he said, "not b¢~d buii~ngs that keep us from teaching chil­ dren." '",

"LONDON (NC) -A German Catholic businessman, Oskar Schindler, received a new inter­ national peace prize in London this week for saving some 20,000 Jewish men, women and chil­ dren from the nazis. Schindler flew here from his home iJl Frankfurt to be pre­ sented at a public meeting with the first peace prize of the Mar­ tin Buber Peace FoundatIon. At the Adolf Eichmann trial in Israel the chief prosecutor, Gideon Hausner, spoke of Schindler's exceptional work. "A German in charge of a factory in the occupied area that employed JeWish slave

laborers from Plaszow Camp near Cracow in Poland, he managed to keep them alive, to protect them from the Gestapo and even to bring over hun~ dreds of members of their fam­ ilies who had been deported to other camps," Mr. Hausner said "This good German Catholic not only saved them by the most ingenious means from the gas chambers but in defiance of the nazi. authorities he took brotherly care of their bodily needs of food, shelter, clothing and rare medicines for four years, paying for it with hiB own and Mrs. Schindler's per­ sonal possessions."

Milwaukee Common Council

has adopted an open housing

ordinance which duplicates


the provisions of an already ex­

isting state law barring discrim­

ination in the sale or rental of mon-owner occupied housing. Passage of the oirdinance was ~rmed "worse than nothing' by Mrs. Vel Phillips, Negro coun­ cilwoman, who has five times proposed stronger ordinances which were defected by· the council. She estimated that only 00 per cent of Milwaukee's housing would be covered by. the new law. The council passed ordi­ nance by a 13 to 6 vote. Passage was recommended by a 5-to-0 vote of the council's judiciary­ legislation committ<ee. Two,weeks earlier the council voted to hold an April referen­ dum which will asle Milwaukee citizens to vote on the resolu­ tion: "That the Common Coun­ ell of the City of Milwauk~e ahan not enact any ordinance which in' any manner restricts the right of owners of real es­ tate to sell, lease or rent private property.

Catholic Papers' Seek National Adverncsing

Thurs., Dec. 21, 1967

c~@[]'®@~ ~o$rrnisscd O)~ lL@~@:: [L®@~e!l'!S

NEW YORK (NC)-The nation's 120 oX" 00 diocesan neW8pa~rs have, for years, depended upon local adver­ tisers while national advertisers have PUlt billions into daily newspapers, magazines and TV, remaining either unapproached or unconvinced that religious weeklies have a place m their sales budgets. Anticipate Soccess But by the first of the year, 23 Catholic newspapers with a combined circulation of 2.5 mil­ lion in every major metropoli­ tan area in the East and Mid­ west will be doing something about it. The papers, which have formed the Catholic Major Mar­ ket Newspapers, have rented office space at the Catholic Press Association headquarters at 432 Park Avenue South, here in New York City, and are in­ terviewing applicants for the top sales job. According to Thomas R. Brennan, advertising manager of the Buffalo Magnificat and organization presidenll, the drive for national advertising has every chance of success.



VALLE lVII (NC) - A pastOIi' here has charged that a cement factory is dismissing all work~ ers who have a record as laboli' leaders. Father Benito Lezcano added that "Valle Mi's population itJ tired of putting up with an tlC­ cumulation of injustices," andl asked government agencies to stop the lay-offs. The Paraguayan priest oafd that workers are not paid with currency, but with coupons thai they must redeem later at COIlllll­ pany stores.

"Until now," he said, "Cath­ olic papers have been repre­ sented by a firm which had other accounts besides ours. This time, we will have our own man, whose only job is to sell for the Catholic papers." Brennan also' feels that the Catholic papers have a strong position which has two major thrusts: "There is a built-in, unwrit­ ten endorsement of advertising appearing in Catholic papers," Secondly, the larger size of Catholic families makes them natural targets for food, furni­ ture and clothing advertising. And Catholic families have the buying power in the metro­ politan areas. The Advocate, newspaper of the Newark Arch­ diocese which circulates in four prosperous northern New Jer­ sey counties, claims a $10,000­ plus average family income among its readers. Plan Expansion Catholic Major Market News­ papers will seek "all kinds of national advertising," sa i d Brennan, and will sell space in all, in one, or in any combina­ tion of papers. The organization represents newspapers covering the New. York - New Jersey - Connecti­ cut metropolitan area, Chicago, Buffalo, St. Louis, New Orleans, Washington, Cleveland, Detroit, Boston - "nearly every major market in the East and Mid­ west, said Brennan who hopes to expand to the West Coast and open Midwest and Western offices.
