Cardinal Cicognani Praises Churchill VATICAN CITY (qC)--Sir Winston Churchill was "the personification 0f his coumry, even of the wodd, in the-relentless battle for liberation from totalitar- anism," the Pope's Secretary cA State declared here.

We need a groundswell of prayer and in- dividual renewal of great depth. Such a movement could begin with this meet- ing." Father Greenspun, a Paulist priest whose headquarters are in Washington, DC, emphasized the importance of the laity in the ecumenical movement and stated that such a unity must originate from its ranks. "We suddenly realize," he said, "that Christianity is not growing but is being pushed into a corner of the world. We need to bring Christ to the world and if we are in- terested in this and realize the urgency of it, we must be concerned a b o u t Christian unity." Both speakers concurred that the hope of unity must be faced with realism, devoid of dis- agreements that may cloud the movement and of "elements of fad and novelty." Declared Doctor Brown, a leader of United Presbyterian, USA, professor of religion at Stanford University and a Protestant observed in the Sec- ond Vatican Council in 1963: (Continued on Page 6) Tacoma Discussion Draws .560 A Catholic Archbishop and Bishop Saturday "broke bread" for the first time together with an Episcopalian bishop and a Methodist bishop at a private dinner in Seattle's Rainier Club. Some 5,100 Christians from at least l0 major confessions, including Catholic, Sunday as- sembled at the Seattle Center Arena in an inspiring gather- ing, unparalleled in the relig- ious a nnal s of ashington State. Approximately 560 others gathered Monday at the Uni- versity of Puget Sound in Ta- coma for a nationally un- precedented evening of dis- cussion on religion. Joined by a Jewish rabbi, Catholic, Protestant and Ortho- dox clergymen met again Mon- day On a social note under the auspices of the Knights of Co- lumbus' Seattle Council. Throughout all these event- ful ecumenical encounters, sin- cere attempts were made to reach out for better religious understanding and further dia- logue. For Christians the hope had deeper significance. T h e y prayed for unity and acknow- ledged through the motivation of God the Holy Spirit their common spiritual kinship of brotherhood in, God the Son under the fatherhood of God the Father. These events are certainly a turn in history. Rev. Dr. Robert McAfee Brown, one of the two main speakers at Seattle's Public Gathering of Prayer for Chris- tian Unity, noted that the rela- tionships between Catholics and Protestants have come "a long way in a short time" from "diatribe to dialogue." "This is an age that is ex- citing and challenging espe- cially for Christians," declared Father William B. Greenspun CSP, the other main speaker. "Traveling around the coun- try, I see, everywhere, Chris- tians rushing toward one an- other with a new kind of un- derstanding and concern. The spirit is everywhere.-a rash of ecumenical activity that is difficult for me to keep up with." Laying the ground rules for Christian unity, the national director of the Confraternity of Christian Doctrine's Apostolate of Good Will warned: "We must not deceive our- selves that we have a solid movement toward Christian unity, at this time. When a serwee such as this becomes a common thing, then we will begin to have a real Cardinal Cites Catholic Press Budgets Since the day when journalism itself will begin.

Kramer Phi} Announcement of the appointments ended a long-standing rumor that Pope Paul planned to let the honorary title of car- dinal lapse by not naming any new ones. The rumor gained currency as the first year of his pontificate passed without any increase in the ranks of princes of the Church. The usual practice is for a new Pope to hold a consistory shortly after- his coronation. Plans-for the coming consistory were among the best kept secrets of recent Vatican history. In the past there' has been a kind of "consistorial atmosphere" which has preceded the of. ficial publication of the names of new cardinals. This time there was no hint of the appointments until they were announced by the Vatican Press Office. Among those named was a Canadian, Archbishop Maurice Roy of Quebec. Three Eastern-rite patriarchs headed the list of appoint- ments. At the top was Melkite-rite Patriarch Maximos IV Saigh of Antioch. This means he is the first cardinal created by Pope Paul and therefore has certain honorary privileges, such as cele- brating the annual commemoration of the Pope's coronation in st. Peter's basilica. The other easterners were Maronite-rite Patriarch Paul Meouehi of Antioch and Coptic-rite Patriarch Stephanos I Sidarouss of Alexandria. Also named were three prelates from Sees behind the Iron Curtain--Archbishop Josef Beran of Prague, Czechoslovakia; Archbishop Franjo Seper of Zagreb, 'Yugoslavia, and Ukranian- rite Archbishop Josyf Slipyj of Lvov, U.S.S.R. Archbishop Beran was released after 14 years of internment in October, 1963, but has not been allowed by Czechoslo'akia's Communist rulers to return to his See. Archbishop Slipyj was freed after 17 yehrs in Soviet prisons in February, 1963, and has since been residing in Rome. Pope Paul named the Church's second Negro cardinal, Arch- bishop Paul Seungrana, W.F., of Ouagadougou, capital of the newly independent African nation of Upper Volta. He also raised four priests to the Sacred College--Msgr. Joseph Cardijn of Belgium, founder of the Young Christian Work- ers organization; Msgr, Charles Journet, a theologian who is the first Swiss to be named a cardinal in modem times; Father Giulio Bevilaequa, an Oratorian Father who is an old friend of the Pope and accompanied him to the Holy Land in January, 1964, and Msgr. Federico Callori di Vignale, the Pope's major- domo, a top official of the papal household. Besides the Eastern-rite patriarchs, only one Asian was on the list--Archbishop Thomas Cooray OMI, of Colombo, Ceylon. There was also one Latin American--Archbishop Agaelo Rossi of Sa0 Paulo, Brazil. The others named were. Archbishop Lorenz Jaeger of Paderborn, Germany; Arch- bishop Joseph Martin of Rouen, France; Archbishop Owen McCann of Cape Town, South Africa; Archbishop Leon Dural of Algiers, Algeria; Archbishop Ermenegildo Florit of Florence, Italy. (Continued on Page 4) Track Meet Is on StartingBIocks: By Fred Cordova The Queen City's first major indoor track venture is on the starting blocks. The run-off of the first annual Seattle Indoor Invitational Track Meet begins with brief but colorful opening ceremonies at 8 p.m. the eventful Saturday, Feb. 6, in the spacious Seattle Center Coliseum. The heats will feature a bevy of the world's greatest track and field stars, inehding five members of the US Olympic Team in Tokyo and a world record-holder. But the heat is also on the Carroll Club of Seattle, adventure, some sponsor of Seattle's major winter attraction for the benefit of the Archdiocesan CYO program. Fondly named by Carrollmen and boosters the "great run- around," this meet has received everything but that as far as the general populace and trackmen are concerned. The invita- tional has generated a lively interest in the cinder sport and a kindly eye to the CYO. Even the State Senate is enthused with the solons Thursday in Olympia passing a resolution, commending the Carroll Club and participating athletes. Both factors of lively interest and kindly eye are needed winning symbols when you consider that the Catholic dub of professional and business laymen have been pushing for an ll,9O0-ticket campaign. And right alongside the men have beer/ the ladies of the Carroll Club Auxiliary. "There are all kinds of tickets left," assured meet co- chairmen Vernon F. Raschko and Lee E. Sinclair. These ducats are $1.50, $2.50, $3.50 and $4.50 and available in Seattle, Burien, Bellevue, Tacoma and Everett. "Unlike basketball where the supposedly prime seats are located in the middle," Sinclair said, "the seats on the end zones in a track meet are among the best. This is because of the turns." " In the Carroll scheme in the plush Coliseum, the shot pUt broad and triple jumps and the finish line for all dashes and hurdles will be at the south turn.

This, the foregoing and that which follows is in part the Press Month message of Lawrence Cardinal Shehan of Baltimore, chairman of the Press Department, National Catholic Welfare Conference. Hence, for all its accuracy, the repeated as- sertion has long grown threadbare that "never has true Catholic journalism been more neces- sary than now." We are therefore condemed to a cliche when we justifiably make that same as- sertion in a year when the Second Vatican Coun- cil will most likely end and a postconciliur age will be uniquely challenged and must be ade. quately equipped "to disturb the comfortable and to comfort the disturbed." Public opinion, however, should be in contin- uous conversation with the authentic teachers of the living Church. Here the Catholic press is called upon to function as an intermediary be- tween the divinely appointed teachers within the Church and the whole people of God who are summoned to transform the everyday world ac- cording to the mind of Christ. As such an inter- mediary, the Catholic press offers no more creative service than the promotion of that ecu- menical or household dialogue which ought to flourish within the Church between all ranks of her members.

Governor Rockefeller is ex- pected to submit a budget for New York State with a $3.48 billion price tag. All this means, of course, that more money will have to be extracted from the taxpayers' income in the fiscal year 1966, beginning July 1. The federal budget was placed at $99.7 billion in esti- mated expenditures, with an ex- pected income of some $5.3 billion less, or a planned de- ficit in that amount. In other words, it was not a balanced budget. This means that the differ- ence between income and ex- penditures will be added to the national debt, which by the end (Continued on Page 9) left) Frank Scott, Joseph Barreca, Frank Kiefner and Tom Rossi.
