54 Shrine Cures Su'pernatural LOU-RDES (NC)-During the 100 years of its existence, the Lourdes shrine has been the site of 54 cures whicR are recognized by the Church as supernatural. This figure was released by officials of the shrine who point out that these 54 supernatural cures are only a small part of the more than 3,000 cures which have taken place at Lourdes. The 3,000 cures are recognized as at least beyond explanation by strictly scientific and medical knowledge. But the Church alone is qualified to declare them as works of God, and she has done so in only 54 cases so far, shrine officials noted. Twenty cardinals and several hundred bishops have already announced their intention of at­ tending the centenary celebra­ tions to be held here next year, it was reported. . His Eminence Pierre Cardinal Gerlier, Archbishop of Lyons, will preside· at the opening of the celebration on Feb. 11, 1958, and His Eminence Maurice Car­ dinal Feltin will close the cel­ ebrations on Feb. 11, 1959; His Eminence Angelo Cardinal RoncaIli, Patriarch of Venice, will dedicate the vast' subterra­ nean Church of St. Pius X on March 25, '1958. Cardinal Ron­ calli is a former Apostolic Nun­ cio .0 France.

Archbishop. Cicognani spoke briefly at the conclusion of the film thanking and congratulat­ ing the NCCM and NBC "in the name of the distinguished guests here present and in my own." "What was proposed as a monu­ mental project is 110W a glor­ ious achievement," he said, "worthy of the inspired tradi­ tions of the National Council of Catholic Men and of the artistic and constructive style of the

"We are· deeply grateful for this premiere of 'Rome Eternal.' You have been most kind and generous in our regard. From' now on, millions of people will not only enjoy this production but will also," we hope, have a better understanding and appre­ ciation of what 'Rome. Eternal' means." Archbishop Cicognani pointed out briefly the unique history of Rome, mysterious in her or­ igin victorious over all the world of ;ncient times, mentioned sev­ eral times in the Sacred Scrip­ tures able to give a universal lang~age, Latin, and the prin­ ciples of universal law to the world. He. then called at~ention to the supreme inheritance she received. Peter, .the Vicar of Christ, went there and fixed there the center of his exalted task. Only God IS Eternal Only God is really eternal, the Apostolic Delegate said, and the Supreme Pontiff is the guardian of the inheritance of the Son of God - 'His doctrine, His sac­ raments; His Church. Here, he explained, we find the argu­ ments and proofs of eternity. The Holy Father, the Com­ mon Father of all, who is suc­ cessor of St. Peter, the "Rock" of Christ's Church, the Apostolic Delegate continued, carries on and will ever carryon, in ac­ cordance with the promise of Our Divine Lord, the teaching of His eternal doctrine and the guidance of souls to eternal sal­ vation. He stressed that our pres­ ent Holy Father, Pope Pius XII, has given incessant testimony to this universal fatherhood by his most numerous audiences granted to people of all faiths, who go to Rome with this one purpose in 'mind, "to see Peter," to listen to him. In commenting on the unique flavor of the films, he expressed the hope that their message would be thoroughly and widely realized through their forthcoming national tele­ cast.

Jesuit Urges Catholics Develop Understanding of, Other People CHAMPAIGN (NC) The habit of ,"viewing with alarm" has caused, American Catholics to neglect their. relations, with their fellow Americans, accord­ ing to a leading Jesuit educator. Jesuit Father· Wa'lter J. Ong of St. Louis University 1:(1)­ tended that the mission of Amer­ ican Catholics' does not lie in pointing out dangers. He addressing '8 meeting of the Newman 'Foundation of the Uni­ versity of Illinois. The communication of knowl­ edge and attitudes is the key function of tha'; mission, Father Ong declared. Even though Cath­ olics have goo,d' reason to abject strenuously to some things in American culture, "viewing with alarm" must be merely a side­ line. ''The advance in commu!lica-­ tions through the years has been an \lnmistakable good in bring­ ing men closer together," he said. "American Catholics owe it to their Church and their country to develop understanding of other people.. Up to now, we have not been too good at it. We are too prone to make our com­ munication with others a One­ way affail,"."


Public Relations Important Father Ong said that the art 0; communications has spread beyond commercial activity to other fields. "Not only business-" es, but many religious have their ~ublic relations men.

Everyone is public relations minded, because mankind is more in touch with' itself than ever before. "Before the American Cath­ olic ~an realize his place in the world; he must understand weIJ this American expression of the gro~th of communications." Father Ong' warned agaist eJitreme nationalism in commu­ nications, "which makes so many of our dealings with other na­ tions one-sided." "This is our great weakness," he declared, "our inability to adapt ourselves to other Peo­ ~le. We specialize in converting tb~m to our way of thinking. This attitude will seriously in­ terfere with the mission of the United States and the Ameri­ can Church 'in the coming ·de­ cades."

Hartford Diocese Announces' Plans For New St. Joseph Cathedral HARTFORD (NC) - A new St. ,Joseph Cathedral will rise here on the Farmington Avenue site of the old one, which was destruyed by fire in December, 1956. Archbishop Henry J .. O'Brien ' of Hurtford announced that pre­ liminary,plans submitted by Eg­ gers 'and Hi{;gins, architects, of· Ne-w York City, show the new· cathedral will be of contempor­ ary cce!lign "with a flavor ot the tra,(litional form of architecture." There will be no inflammable materials .in the new cathedral except the pews and stalls. The interior will be entirely of such permanent materials as masonry, mOHiaC, glnss. concrete and mar­ ble. 'I'he :{l'ating layout will pro­ vide fiVe aisles with un interrupt­ . eli visibility from every seat in , the nave. There will be room for 1.800 persons in the main church and an additional 1,600 in the :ower church. The facade of the new cathe­ . dral will be 130 feet high. A cross-topped tower will rise 27~

Priests on Jet Inaugural Flight AMSTERDAM (NC) - Four American priests took part in the inaugural flight of a new jet-powered plane readied to help transport pilgrims through ~urope during the 1958 Lourdes centennial year. The airliner inaugurated here is a turbo-prop plane. Instead of employing conventional gaso­ line engines, it uses jet propul­ sion to run turbines which turn the propellors. This is said to make for swifter, less noisy transportation. The plane left here for Rome, where it was scheduled to be christened. The clergymen on the trip are Fathers John E. Kelly, director of the Bureau of Information of the National Catholic Welfare Conference, Washington; John Dietzen, assistant editor of the Peoria (Ill.) Register; Joseph A. Cir'rincione, pastor of St. Fran­ cis of Assisi parish, Rochester, N. Y., and Charles Borgognoni, assistant pastor of Our Lady of Pompei parish, Syracuse, N. Y.

Bahamian island and the life of a hermit is told in The Hermit of Cat Island by Peter F. Anson, published by P. J. Kenedy & Sons. Reared in a traditional Vic­ torian atmosphere, John C. Hawes grew up with a freedom of spirit and the artist's original­ .ity which was early reflected in his decision to abandon a prom­ ising architectural career for the ministry. Uncertainty about his suitability for the Anglican per­ suasion led him to Catholicism and, after several adventurous

months in the Canadian North­ west, to Rome. where he was

ordained a priest.

Assigned as a missionary in

the sprawling Australian bush country, Hawes labored for 24 years, there gained a reputation

as a church designer, dog­

breeder and winner of racing's Geraldton Cup, and was made a Monsignor. () At the seemingly settled' age of 63, Monsignor Hawes made a startling decision. He would abandon his now comforable life in Australia to hazard one of poverty and solitude as a hermi~ on a remote island' in the Bahamas, where 80 years earlier, as an Anglican cleric, he had, achieved fame as designer of Anglican c~urches. Fra Jerome soon. found hill long cherished solitary .ideal in­ terrupted. The natives of the islands needed him and his archi­ tectural services were in con­ stant demand. When, in 1950, a cover story on the Hermit ap­ peared in Colliers', a rash of tourists descended upon him. He died in Miami Beach in July., 1956: While pursuing this dual role as hermit and missionary archi­ . teet, Fra Jerome found time to keep a diary, accounts of his perilous sea journeys from island to island, and a steady corre­ spondence with friends in which he made frequent trenchant ob­ servations on such controversial topics as animal immortality and the state of contemporary litur­ gical art. Many direct quotes from these writings are em­ bodied in the book, and it is illustrated with a selection of tbe Hermit's photographs, architee­ tural sketches and amusing Jam­ poons.Of modern. art,

Honor Sudents Named

Spotlighting Our Schools ST. MARY'S HIGH" TAUNTON In addition to the senior Christmas play, presented under the direction of Miss Mary Ben­ son, each class held an indi­ vidual pre-Christmas program. The selections included group singing of Christmas carols, in­ dividual talent contributions, and re:freshments. Beginning Decem­ ber 17, the girls recited Advent antiphons appropriate for the week preceding Christmas. The high school honor roll for the second term was posted. The seniors had the largest repre­ sentntion with twenty-three members on the list, while the juniors led high honors with ten. The yearbook staff sent in one­ third of the copy for printing. The second shipment will be sent on Janunry 18, and the staff hopes to complete the dummy by February 21. . An interesting Christmas tree typing contest came to an excit­ ing end when Helen Boivin, a' junior in the Typing I class, turned in the winning score of fifty net words per minute. For the month of December, the be­ ginners' typing class has been working hard to trim a Christ­ mas tree with ornaments earned by nccurate typing on five­ minute tests. Runners-up for the speed prizes were Irene Dubois nnd Joan Silva. Geraldine Bou­ chard was awarded a prize for having put the most ornaments on the tree, nnd Joan Silva, Nancy O'Connell, Mary Sheehy, Anne Hayes, Maureen Kiley, and Geraldine Bouchnrd tied for the honor of having' turned in the most accurate writing for the month. HOLY FAMILY HIGH SCHOOL, NEW BEDFORD . In the first basketball tilt of the season, Holy Family hoop;' Bters were the victors. Both first and second teams rolled up size­ able scores over their rival, Pre­ vost High' of Fall River. This was also Holy Family's "first ap­ pearance in the new Kennedy Memorial Gym and an enthusi­ astic following was on hand to support the teams. The debating club bowed to the superior club from Mount St. Mary's Academy, Fall River. The judges, Attorneys Harrjngton and McCormick, and Mr. Ernest Flood, gave the Mount team a seven-point victory. We con­ gratulate the winners. We are proud of the two debnters from Holy Family, Joseph Dugan nnd Robert Lawlor. Sister Mary Virginia, princi­ pal of Holy Family High, has re­ ceived a communication from the University of Massnchusetts, College of Arts and Sciences, that in connection with an ex­ periment conducted at the col­ lege this fall of advanced place­ ment of entering students there hnve been some outstanding per­ formances. Among those who have been commended for excel­ lent work is Donald J. Aspen, a June graduate. Donald's achieve­ ment is in the field of zoology. SACRED HEARTS ACADEMY, FALL RIVER Sodality members will start the New Year with a program designed to inform students of the need for prayer in behalf of the "Ckurch of Silence" behind the iron curtain. At a January 3 meeting, Very Rev. Humberto Medeiros will present as guest speaker a Hungarinn priest for­ merly imprisoned by the com­ munist regime. Mary Beth Trai­ nor, program chairman, has pre­ pared a bulletin board display for the meeting. Advent observances at SHA' included homeroom celebrations centering about customs such as the blessing of the Christmns tree and crib, the use of the Advent House and Advent Wreath, and the recitation of the 0 Anti­ phons. Students also marked the feast of St. Lucy, patron of scho~l girls. Seniors received special privileges and were served Christmas treats by members of the junior clau at their 10:30 break period.

'Swede' Ne'son National Award to Tommy Salvo By' Jack Kineavy Somerset High School Coach

Quick thinking boqt of training and an innate sense of fair play earned for Fall River's Tommy. Salvo, Boston University's yearling center, the c~veted Nils V. "Swede" Nelson Award for Sportsmanshjp given annually by the Gridiron Club of Boston. The anhouncement of Salvo's se­ lection was made last Wed­ nesday night and the presen­


tation will take place. on Janu­ ary 11 at a, dinne~ at the Shera­ ion Plaza; .Boston. Tom is the·first freshman to be

honored in the 12-year history of . the award and the second Boston University player to be singled out for distinction. Everett-Dorr, Terrier place-kicking specialist and Marine Corps hero, was the 1947 recipient., Other distin­ guished awar(~ winners, include Doak Walker, Southern Method-. ist, 1949; Bob Williams, Notre Dame, 1951, and Jim Swink, Texas Christian, 1956. Only one other lineman, . Joe Mitinger, 1952 Yale captain ani tackle, has won the' award. The award, named in honor of "Swede" Nelson, former Harvard football player anc.. raconteur in- . comparable, is given annually "to the player who by his con­ duct on the gridiron, demon-' strates a high esteem for the football code and exemplifies sportsmanship to. an outstanding degree." The incident which re­ sulted in Salvo's nominatIon oc­ curred at Storrs, Conn., Nov. 8, in a game between the Terrier Pups and the U. Conn. Frosh. . It was the third period. B.U., down 14-7, was in possession and driving fol!' its second score. The play was an off-tackle smash aimed inside Connecticut's left end, Charley Delbon. After car­ rying out his blocking assign­ ment on the defensive line­ backer, Tom looked up to see

Delborn writhing in pain some five yards away, his right leg bent grotesquely.

Aids Opponent Tom rushed to. the aid of the stricken player, knelt beside him shielding him from further con­ tact and holding his shoulders so that he wouldn't move. "r real­ ized he had a compound frac­ ture," said Tom recalling the situation, "and I yelled to a couple of Connecticut players to call time and get the team doctor on the. field." The significance of Salvo's act might have escaped public atten­ tion had it not been .for Bob Ingalls, Conn-:.cticut varsity ceach, who was present at the game.. "It was one of the finest examples of sportsmanship and quick thinking I have ever seen," Ingalls related ata football luncheon Ii week later, adding that "because of Salvo, Charley Delbon will be able to play foot­ ball again." . " Is Marine Reserve Tom credits his ·"training in first aid for his' quick analysis of the injury. He's a member of the Marine Reserve' and last summer had an intensive course in first aid at the Newport Naval Base. Emphasis was pl~ced on the employment of primary measures for cl;!rtain type casual­ ties, among them fractures. This - knowledge'.,couplecr with Tom's ability to react instinctively and with good judgment saved Char­ ley Delbon from possibl" further injury. Salvo's action prompted "Swede" Nelson to remark, "Even if Tommy never makes another team or' never plays an­ other game of football, he. has already gone a lot further than some All-Americl players have."

His versatility on the grid­ iroin won him All-Bristol recog­ nition both as a lineman and a back. A hand fracture suffered in practice the week before the opening of the 1957 season caused Tom to miss the first three games. It was anticipated

that he'd be out at least six weeks, but the boy worked out with the team each day and with characteristic deter­ mination came back in less than half that time. Coach Luke Urban, looking for a Mr. Inside to complement speedsters Gordie Andrews and ROn Bridge, moved Tom to the fullback slot where he shone as a power runner.

Prayers Continued from' Page One 'to which no man of good will

could be deaf. In the midst of our grief over the atrocities per­ petrated upon them and our other brothers beneath the heel of the Communist slavel'Y, ,we thri~l to the striking ~vidence they have, given that {aith' and hQpe still shine in lands of darkness and that not all 'the might of wicked men can overcome the strength of God., ' "While millions or' human, be­ ings live under the, rule of ter­ ror and bitter oppression, it is' imperative for us to recall that in the arsenal of Christianity, in reach of all men of good will, there is the invicible weapon of prayer. It has prevailed against apparently hopeless o'dds in ages past. It is unthinkable that we should in our' day neglect to pe­

tition the Infinite Creator and Ruler of the Universe in behalf of these modern martyrs. '--"We, the Catholic Bishops of

the United States, with profound

reliance on t.he unfailing power

of prayer, call upon our people

and upon all who "love justice

and hate iniquity" to unite on.

Sunday, December twentY-1?-inth,

in a day of prayer. Let us all' beg God, our Common Father, to stretch forth His Mighty Arm, to restrain those who have so 'long 'crushed His children, to strengthen and console the her­

oic souls who have endured so

much and to lead them speedily to the enjoyment of the freedom of the Sons of God:"
