"1 O--THE PROGRESS i i i i n PRIEST T IS iteresting to note that of the 55,581 ordained priests in the United States, 33,774 are diocesan and 21,807 belong to religious orders. Last year there were 1,679 newly ordained priests. There are now 545 seminaries and novitiates with 46,254 students. And yet everyone knows how wholly inadequate this number is. In Chile Half of the population crowded into cardboard and wooden barracks . . . families of 10 and 12 living in one or two rooms with beaten-earth floors. This is Chile today! And tomorrow holds little promise. Communities of "slum dwellers" are in- creasing at a frightening rate--in Santiago, the capital, their inhabitants have jumped from 60,000 to 500,000 within 10 years. Less than one per cent of them are practicing Catholics. Indeed, although 92 per cent of the Chileans claim to be Catholic, religious ignorance and pagan customs are widespread. The poor rarely marry, as free union is the general practice. The upper classes do wed in the Church, but infidelity and birth control are prevalent. About half the population is illiterate or semi.illiterate. Each year 40,000 children are unable to go to school; only one of five finish elementary school and a mere two per cent of these further their education. Religious training is compulsory unless parents request dispensation, but the lack of clergy makes it impossible. in Burundi In the newly formed, predominantly Catholic kingdom of Burundi, the faithful have increased from 2,865 to 1,340,000 dur- ing the past 50 years. Catechumens number clove to 150,000, and complete Christianization of this unified, law-abiding people would seem only a matter of time. But: The increase in priests is not in proportion to the growth of the population, posing a serious threat to further conversions. So ely for The Propagation of the Faith Re . Stephen Szeman, 'Archdiocesan Director 907 Terry Avenue, Seattle 4--MA. 2-8880 Ten years ago there were 51 students at the senior seminary; five years later, 61. Today there are but 65, and the one-hundredth priest was ordained only last September. As a result, each African priest in the country is responsible for some 10,000 baptiz- ed Catholics, as many pagans and several thousand catechumens. Society For Native Clergy Latin America houses one-third Of the members of the mysti- cal body . . . Yet in Chile; one diocese has only five diocesan priests, 19 monks and no seminarians; another diocese has 65,000 Catholics and only one diocesan priest. Brazil, with the same number of priests: as Holland--9,400-- has 13 times as many Catholics! In Sac Paulo, at the time the population was increasing by one million, only two priests were ordained. A mere 8.6 per cent of all those who have passed through the major and minor seminaries have ever been ordained. The Church's efforts must be concentrated on fostering native vocations and upbuilding seminaries. This is the work of The Society of St. Peter the Apostle for native clergy, which last year aided 445 seminaries and their 34,677 seminarians. But even this is not enough! Every year more and more people realize this great need and are really doing something about it, first with their prayers and then with their sacrifices. To educate a native seminarian for one year costs about $250. To pay his expenses until or- dination costs about $1,500.00. We're sure that there could be no greater consolation to anyone than to know that everyday there is a Mass being said by a priest who is a priest because we made it possible by our sacrifice.

Dooley Found- Bishops' annual Misereor fund- idea, which was to combine some 17 or 18 nations into a similar alignment, but one which would give greater em- phasis to her trade interests. This was contrary to the basic idea of a continental Eu- ropean system as envisaged by France, West Germany, Italy, Belgium, Luxembourg and The Netherlands. For that reason, Britain underook to form an- other group and at a conven- tion in Stockholm, November 20, 1959, she brought about for- mation of what was called the "Outer 7," and was known as the European Free Trade Asso- ciation (EFTA). It comprised the states of Austria, Britain, Denmark, Nor- way, Portugal, Sweden and Switzerland. The hope was expressed that it would be a temporary expedient, "a step toward an agreement" to extend the trade association to 12 other states in the Organization for European Economic Coopera- tion, including Spain. The pact was signed Decem- ber 29, 1959. Rifts Developed From the day it went into effect January 1, 1959, the so- called "Inner 6" or the Com- mon Marketwas a sensational success, and still is a mutually advantageous association for its members. On the other hand, the EFTA did not fare quite so well. In fact, it soon began to show rifts and by early 1960 talks were undertaken between leaders of Britain and France toward a possible. consolidation. De Gaulle conceded that "dif- ferences" existed between the two countries, due largely to the continental character of France's economy" and the nature of Britain's "which is based essentially on overseas exchanges." By mid-1961, Prime Minister Macmillan planned to ask membership in the Inner 6, but he was opposed by the Com- monwealth countries as causing division within the Common- wealth. This placed Macmillan in a quandary, so he proceeded to make an attempt to achieve membership in the Common Market without jeopardizing the Commonwealth. He an- nounced to Parliament his de- cision to seek negotiations toward this end July 31, 1961, He made it clear at that time that Britain would require spe- cial conditions for its Common Market membership "to meet the special needs" of the Com- monwealth and the EFTA coun- tries and that if the Common Market refused to recognize these needs, and the negotia- tions failed, "quite a lot of things will happen and quite major changes may have to be made in the foreign policy and commitments of Great Britain." Well, that time has now come, and we can expect "quite a lot of things" to happen. ation. The foundation carries augurated in the Far East by the famed doctor who died of cancer at 34. Frank T. Schait of St. Cas- sian's Grammar School "met" Dr. Dooley through the pages of his book, "The Night They Burned the Mountain," which he read for a school book re- port assignment more than a year ago. Since then, with a group of friends, he has been doing what he can to help. Up to now, however, he hasn't tried anything as ambi- tious as his latest project. Engaged Trio With money borrowed from his father, he has engaged the Kingston Trio for a perform- ance at the 4,000-seat South Mountain Arena in South Orange on February 17. Between the rental, the guar- antee and other expenses, Frank and his father have com- mitted $6,500 to the project. They've scaled the tickets at $5 and $7.50. Frank has turned the base- ment of the Schait home into a on the medical work in- business office and has enlist- ed the aid of his mother, his schoolmates and professional ticket brokers. "Every person we help," he adds, "is a friend for the United States. We possess something that Communism can never posses: love, compassion and understanding--we must share it with others." Heard From Foundation Fzank embarked on his phil- anthropic career by sending $1 to the Dooley Foundation after reading the book. In return, he got a four page letter from Dr. Verne Chancy, executive director of the foundation. That impressed him so much he decided to do more. Last year he organized his classmates and arranged a folk- singing festival that netted $300. During the summer vacation he organized the Thomas Dooley Corps. Associated with the corps is the Civics Clubs at St. Cass- fan's School. It recently raised $200 for the foundation. raising campaign to fight famine and disease in the world. The 20 pfennig (five cents) stamp's design shows the world, a cross, seeds, three ears of grain and the caption, "MISER- EOR 1963." Twenty million of the grey, red and black stamps will be printed for sale from February 27 to August 31. German Catholics have so far given $31,875,000 to the Misereor campaign which has taken place every Lent since 1959.
