A KRA-BjsTR--00lo Station Miracles Have a Was Not the First y JO N J. ECKHART OR at least five years past I have pined for b an FM radio. In an instant last Christmas, this creature craving w a s twice satisfied, once by three friends, and once by my wife, who is sometimes also a friend. I own two FM radios and am pretty much master of all I sur- vey, as well as becoming an odious radio, FM please, snob. I It is in my own personal dis- covery that I exult, and has- ten to share with you a new knowledge, a knowledge I feel sum I am the last to have ac- quired. There are FM stations, and there are FM stations. After having heard the local lot, I am prepared to pass judgement. It's y discovery and I m stuck  with it. Station KRAB, 107.7 me, And yet on that station we enjoy hours, literally hours, of the finest in programming, un- sullied by even one tasteless jab at our purchase power. This sacrificing monument to a better way of life is made barely possible by listener support. If a discriminating listener enjoys what he hears, and he will, he may indicate his appreciation by sending $12 to the station. In this way he aids in the continued existence of far above average programming, and for his trouble, receives an art- fully conceived program every two weeks. KRAB, FM, is the fruitful vine from the idea-seed of its. owner, Lorenzo Milan. It has borne fruit to the extent that it still exists, and it provides Mr. Mi- lan, Mr. Brow, and Miss Keith with occupations they enjoy. How dear is that commodity! But what is a deal more is the specific that this happy group is providing us with an electronic lectern, a forum for seems to me to be pretty much everything t h a t we could ask for in a contempor. ary communication device. It is appropriate for our time. If you have an FM radio, I ideas.

The talk segments include comments, discussions, p I a y and poetry readings. This last may include the late T. S. Eliot reading his own poetry, or the cultivated tones of James Brow reading from that wondrous AT Swim.2- BIRDS, by Flann O'Brien. It may include the ravings of an unreconstructed integration- ist, or the individualistic word music of Kenneth Rexroth. No- body, but nobody, can modulate the opposition out of existence like Rexroth. And the marvel of it all is this. The owner, and the staff continually exercise what I should think would be stagger- ing self-control and vigilance in their enduring refusal to editorialize. They present the speakers, and let it go at that. They do not succumb to the very ob- vious. This is a special little grace, I should think. Which among us, with control of such an encompassing means o f communication, could refrain from opening our big mouths? The krabfolk make the rea- sonable point that their listener- ship is intelligent enough to do their own editorializing. Fan- tastic, but there it is. All they want is to provide a a free forum. This they are do- ing, and doing well. If the children from St. Cath- erine's would just stop bugging them after school, life would be beautiful. However this last is my idea. I have rarely experienced a u e h forbearance as was evinced by the management while I was visiting. It seems the uniformed fry from St. Catherine's are regular bug- .gers and betberers, and what Is more, they seemed wel- come. Did I say relaxed at. mesphere? Complete collapse may be a more apt descrip- tion. But as always, you needn't believe this column alone. Lis- ten for yourself. It is intelli- gent, it is worthwhile, relaxed, and without commercial hustle. "A VANISHING AMERICA, The Life and Times of the Small Town," illustrated, introduced by Wallace Stegner, Holt, Rinehart and Winston, 191 p.p., $9.85. OR those among you. who like myself, are just a little uneasy in our progress and great cities, this book will he a reminder to us of what we have traded for our jazzy automated big-deal age. I hope the trade was worth- while. This book is a collection of stories and pictures about that vanishing creature, the true small town. Washington is represented in this volume of nostalgia with a piece by Justice Wil- liam Douglas as he describes early Forks. Some of the towns are older, obviously, as we proceed east. But each was a slice of grow- ing America, the America of our parents and grandparents, but not for us, or our children. They can only experience that e n c h a n t m e n t secondhand, through the pages of such ex- cellent books as this. It will soon be gone,, I am sad, but this is a good book. Far Deeper Meaning By REV. MR. THEODORE I. MAMO St. Thomas minmy. Kanmore (The following is a commen- tary on the Gospel or the Fourth Sunday after Epiphany from St. Matthew 8:2-27. The series is weekly prepared by des. cons of the archdiocesan meier seminary.) S we saw last week in this series, miracles in the New Testament, and indeed, throughout the centuries, are not simply wonders meant to dazzle the spectator. No, they have a far deeper meaning. For those who have eyes to see, those to whom it is given to understand the mystery of Who Jesus is, they are signs. They point to Jesus, the Mes- siah Who, through them, initi- ates the Kingdom of God on Earth. Their message is the same as the preaching of John the Baptist and our Lord Himself Repont, for the Kingdom of God is at hand. One of these signs, the mir- acle of the calming of the storm, is the subiect of this Sunday's Gospel selection. The event takes place in northern Pales- tine on the Sea of Galilee. As Jesus and tha disciples make the short crossing from one shore to the other, a violent storm suddenly springs up, causing the boat to ship water badly. Panic-stricken, the dis- cip!es cry out for the sleeping Master to save them. He awakens, rebukes the storm and brings about calm. Upon seeing this, the men won- der what sort of man Jesus is. So ends the selection. What can His miracle teach us? First of all, we are shown the unity between Jesus and the God of the Old Testament Who "Hushed the storm to a gentle breeze, and the billows of the sea were stilled" (Psalm 106: 20), and Who rules the pride of the sea (Psalm 88:9). To the Jews, God's power is supremely shown in His author- ity over wind and wave. "More powerful than the roar of many waters, more powerful than the breakers of the sea--powerful on high is the Lord" (Psalm 9:4). To Matthew's question, "What sort of man is this that the winds and sea obey him?" there can be but one possible answer. A second lesson from this epi- sode concerns us here and now. Although at,times Jesus seems to be sleeping, nevertheless He is always present in his Church. Isn't it significant that from the earliest times, the boat has been used as a symbol for the Church? Many times in her history, and even in this present day, the little boat that is the Church has been tossed about by the winds and waves of persecution and trial. There have been times when it seemed she would surely sink in the storm, But present within her is the Say. 1our. In His own good time He will rise up to calm the storm that threatens to engulf those wha have faith in Him, So here we see in action the Lord Who is called at the be- ginning of St. Matthew's Gospel "Emmanuel, God with us" (1: 23) and Who Himself promis- es to His Church: "Behold, I am with you all days, even unto the consum- mation of the world (28:20). Perhaps it strikes us odd that Jesus chides the disciples for their lack of faith. "Why such cowardice? What weak faith you bave!" After all, wasn't it to Him that they came in danger? They had at least enough faith in Him to do that. They had fol- lowed Him, had placed their trust in Him and His message. And yet the evangelist seems to make the point that they should have known they were safe with Jesus. For only a short time before, Jesus had told them of the loving care the Father has for each Of His children (Matt 6:25-32). But here they had forgotten that God is near to HiS chil- dren, that He watehe over them in His loving Provi- dence. Now theirs was but a fair- weather faith in Jesus. Yet af- ter the miracle of the New Tes- tament, the Resurrection, then their faith in the Lord was to prove unyielding in any danger. Budgets Go Up and Up (Continued from Page 1) of the 1986 fiscal year will sky- rocket in the neighborhood of $316. 320 billion. Keeping the expenditure below the $100-bill[on mark means very little, because this is a so-called administra. tive or regular budget and does include such programs like Social Security, Meal. care, h|ghways and other pro- jects which are financed by special taxes of their own. The budget which would in- clude these items is known as the cash budget, and for the next fiscal year would tol $127.4 billion, This reflects a more realistic picture of the government's operations in re- lation to the citizen and the national economy. An enumeration of astronomi- cal and humanly unimaginable figures leaves much to be de- sired in the way of appreciating their immensity. Even to say that the cash budget averages out to next year's tax payment of nearly $600 for every man, women and child in the country conveys little meaning. The increase in this year's budget was in the area of domestle welfare and educa- tion programs, whlch in them, selves total more than the ell- No Accidents In Spiritual Life By MOST REV. FULTON J. SHEEN E may not reveal the name of the country where the following inci- dent took place for the obvious reason that priests are not allowed there. However, three of them entered this country posing as archeologists. They pitched their tent near a river so that they could fish for food. Their suf- ferings were intense, their poverty dire, "to beg they were unable" but to dig they were not ashamed. What do you suppose they turned up in their excavations at the very point where they had pitched their tent? The ruins of the first cathedral that was built in that land a thousand years before. Was it by accident that they were led to this spot? There are no accidents in the spiritual life. The Frovidence of God had directed them to tie together two strings of time, the beginning of the Church in that land's distant past and its re-beginning in the present. e Suppose you had bought the tent for these priests, or an ax, a shovel or a cot. How happy you would be to share in this evident manifesta- tion of God's overruling Providence. But the same opportunity is given t0 you every dsyl We know you have to build churches and schools in rich America but you are part of the Church in poor mission lands as well. The need is much greater there. The Holy Father said that you were to aid him "first and principally" in this great work. We may never convince you to aid him principally, but may we convince you to aid tire federal appropriations during the early New Deal years, Or, to put it in another way, the California State budget this year calls for expenltures in xcess of the total receipts of e federal government in 1936. It so happens that budgets usually indicate expenditures which are less than the amounts actually spent by the end of.the fical year. Over the past 35 years, federal receipts exceeded federal expenditures only six times and then by only small margins. President Johnson's budget this year is predicated on the expectation that the gross na- tional product will increase by some $38 billion to a gross of $660 billion. Unless this sum total is achieved, his defict will be even greater than plan- ned. Nevertheless, he said he would ask Congress to reduce excise taxes by $1.75 billion. Although it is nat likely, Congress could sharpen its legislative axe and chop out some of the proposed Rams er whittle down the appro- priations requested to bring outgo and income into bal- ance. But continued deficit financ- him first? At the beginning o'f every day, from now on, put at least a penny into a box and as you do it say the prayer: "Thy kingdom come!" Send your sacrifices to us and we will send them to the Holy Father. e GOD LOVE YOU to /. M. for $7 "/ have always wanted an expensive sweater and for soy- eral weehs admired one that cost $7.

It has been receiving increasing pop- ular support. From here it would seem that a sustained policy of this kind over a period of time, while seemingly benefiting the pre- sent generation, 'will leave to succeeding generations the op- tion either of reconstructing a shattered economy or of accept- ing a socialistic state. Sfevenson Appeal Speaking of finances always reminds one of the UN. The predicament of trying to find the wherewithal to pay its bills has still not improved. So serious has this situation become that U.S. Ambassador Stevenson .m a d e. a .speech Tuesday, warning the General Assembly that the world or- ganization had reached a critical fork in the road. Failure to enforce the linen- cial responsibilty of the organ- ization will spell its doom "if the Assembly should falter in the exercise of its own author- ity," he said. He appealed to the smaller nations to uphold the right of the General Assembly ta im- pose mandatory assessments for peece-keeping. The refuse1 of a ,few states to pay their share of the assessments was a direct challenge to the entire membership, he said. The showdown with the Soviet Union was expected to occurs this week, but anothm" Monday has gone by and the delegates are still marking time waiting for the improb- able to happen. It was well known that the membership, eslecially the Soviet Union, was awaiting Stevenson's speech in order to detect some slight opening or hint that the U.S. would back down. Apparently, despite his other, wise blunt warning, Stevenson did let down the bars. He told the assemblage that the U.S. was "not dogmatic about this proposal" and that it was pre- pared to examine alternatives patiently. He did not mention Article 19 of the UN Charter. Thus, the se.'called general debate in the Assembly came to an end and the UN once again turned its face toward a bleak hope. Once again, the long-antleipated but non-ma- terialised showdown is expect. ed next Monday.

By JOHN J. KANE, Ph.D. Protesee of Soalolly, University of Notre Dame My husband and I ate both Catholics, married 34 years eo in the Catholic Church. lust recently I learned he bed pTcvi@H#|y married a non.Catholic girl betore a justice of the peace. e #4ys that he was divorced [rom the other girl but how can I believe him? Am I legally married to this man? His first wile died just a [dW months, ago. OU are presenting three problems, all serious. First, a legal question about the status of your marriage. Second, a canonical question about your marriage. Third, a severe emotional shock in learning that your husband of 24 years was previously married. You have so lost faith in him that you don't know whether to believe he actually obtained a divorce or not. You and your husband should visit a competent attorney and discuss the whole matter of his previous marriage and divorce. The lawyer can either advise yD, how to proceed er can employ an investigator. Perhaps it would be better for your peace of mind if you actually saw the court decree covering the divorce and noted the date While you are consulting the attorney you had better find out if there were any children by his first marriage. Be certain to inquire of the lawyer, although he will probably raise the issue himself, about possible, future claims to your husband's estate. You and your husband should go to your pastor or a priest and ask him to begin necessary investigation into your marital status. Numerous complications may be present here So that it may be the chancery will have to study the matter. UT even when the legal and canonical matters have been re- solved, the third problem may linger on, namely, your dis- trust of your spouse. This, too, will have to be resolved or the happiness and stability of your marriage is at stake. Your husband made a bad mistake 24 years ago wbe he failed to inform you of his previous'marriage and divorce. I assume you discovered it when his former wife died. Perha it was mot bitter because he had successfully concealed the matter over these many years. The basic question of your future relations depends ors the actual marital status of each of you. If your husband committed \\;bigamy and your marriage is illegal, the priest and lawyer whom you consult will advise you. Certainly, it will take a long time for your husband to win back the trust you once placed in h. No doubt he is qeito aware of this. But, assuming you are legally married, a,d have been for 24 years, the only possible solution i for YOe to "mlt him to prove his trust and loyalty to you. Part of this can be accomplished by proof that he really ob- tained a divorce when he claims to have done so. If so, the at least in his favor is the fact that when cofronted with the truth of a previous marriage, he admitted it and explained the cir- cumstanees. OTH of you are now in your 40% possibly even older. You say nothing of children in your letter but I presume you have had some. Perhaps they are already married or not living at home. Perhaps you still have one or two in the early teens. What about the shock of this 1"evelation to them? They, too, are involved even ff your marriage is legal l, cause it seems the matter is not exactly a secret. ! am rabig a mere general question now of how a family reacts to disgrace. A great deal depends upon how strong the ties between you and your husband and between the parents and children have been. Probably both of you have brothers and sisters and it may be parents still living. Out of this predteament can come a host of in-law problems, serious quarrels and tensions that may ep[it your family for the rest of their lives. Many families suffer the disgrace of one member. These families have been studied by social seientitts a,d there is one important fact that emerges.
