The liturgical season of Lent will begin Febru- ary 12 with the observance of Ash Wednesday. Ashes, signifying grief or repentance, will be dis- tributed in all churches and chapels. The 40 days of Lent, so arranged to recall Christ's fast in the desert, allow Christians a time of penitential preparation for Easter. In a letter to pastors of the Archdiocese, the Most Reverend Thomas A. Connolly, Archbishop of Seattle, em- phasized that the faithful are exhorted to attend Holy Mass and to receive Holy Communion daily during Lent. The Archbishop said, "By virtue of the new faculties granted by Pope Paul VI to residential bishops in the 'Motu Propio, Pas- torale Munus' under date of November 30, 1963 . . . from Mon- day to Friday inclusive, an evening Mass may be scheduled at 5:30, 6 or 6:30." Since the morning Mass schedule is to be maintained it will not be possible for all parishes to schedule an evening Mass. As last year, the Archbishop has granted permission for the use of a temporarily erected or portable Altar located on the floor of the sanctuary near the Altar Rail during the weekdays of Lent. In explaining the permission, Archbishop ConnoUy noted, "I believe that this innovation, temporary as it may be, will serve to focus the attention of our people on the newly promulgated Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy. It should in addition, serve to develop some prayerful interest and enthusiasm on their part in their attendance and participation in the august Sacrifice . . . The Mass will become, indeed, the true center of Christian life and worship." There will be Mass at 5:30 p.m. every day at St. James Ca- thedral as well as a 12:10 p.m. Mass and the usual daily Masses at 6: 30, 7 and 8:15 a.m. Wednesday evening devotions, consisting of recitation of the Rosary, sermon and Benediction will begin at 7:45 p.m. at the Cathedral. Archbishop Connolly will lead the Way of the Cross Friday evenings at 7:45 p.m. Ash Wednesday is a day of complete fast and abstinence. No meat or soup or gravy made from meat may he used on days of complete abstinence. Everyone over seven years o1 age is bound to observe the laws of abstinence.

Friday, Feb. 7 1964 $4.00 per yeor10c  Copy  41 Senate Narrowly Rejects Ribicoff's Tax Credit Bill WASHINGTON (NC)The Senate defeated by a 48 to 45 vote following sharp exchanges in debate a proposal to permit those paying for a college educa- tion to subtract a portion of the expense from Federal income taxes. The plan was put forward February 4 by Senator Abraham Ribicoff of Connecticut as an amendment to the Johnson admin- istration's $11.6 billion tax cut bill. The Johnson administration fought the proposal vigorously, claiming it would be too costly. Three of the Democrats who co- sponsored the bill with Ribicoff voted against it: Sens. Hubert Humphrey of Minnesota, Robert C. Byrd of West Virginia and Frank E. Moss of Utah. Their votes would have secured its passage. The vote upheld an earlier vote in the Senate Finance Com- mittee which rejected the Ribicoff amendment after hearing Treasury spokesmen say its cost of $750 million a year now and nearly $1.3 billion annually by 1970 would force a cutback in the bill's individual income tax reductions. The amendment would have permitted a tax credit of up to $325 a year for college costs. It would have permitted the credit for expenses at any college, public, private or church-related. During the debate, Sen. Wayne Morse'o|' 0regon chairman of the Senate education ubcommtt[, aacked the Ribicoff pro- posal, charging that it was "an attempt to circumvent" Church- State questions by permitting credits for costs of church-related colleges. Ribicoff responded to Morse: "You are injecting this issue-- no one else is." Morse charged that presidents of religious colleges "are putting on a terrific drive to get this amendment passed." Morse's reference apparently was to the support of the Ribieoff proposal by the Association of American Colleges, whose membership is about 900 liberal arts colleges, many of them church-related institutions. Ribicoff's proposal would have permitted a credit of 75 per cent of the first $200 in costs, 25 per cent of the next $300 and 10 per cent of the next $1,000. In addition, as a person's income rose, the amount of credit would drop. (See Breakdown of Vote Page 12) New Commission Named For Sacred Liturgy VATICAN CITY (NC)--Pope Paul VI has named three cardinals as members of the new Commission for the Sacred Liturgy. The commission, whose crea- tion was announced (Jan. 28) in the Pope's decree on the ecumenical council's liturgy constitution, will be entrusted with the task of revising the missal, breviary and other liturgical books. The members are Arcadio Cardinal Larraona, Prefect of the Sacred Congregation-of Rites and head of the ecu- menical council's Comission for the Liturgy; Paolo Cardi- nal Giobbe of the Roman curia who was vice president of the council commission; and Giacomo Cardinal Ler- caro of Bologna, who was a member of the council com- mission. Appointed secretary of the new commission was Father Annibale Bugnini, C.M., a con- suitor of the Congregation of Rites' liturgy section and of the liturgy commission of the Rome diocese. He is a council expert. ... In Today's Progress Princess' Conversion Brings Mixed Reactions ...............

SEVERAL CLERGYMEN joined picket lines in Cleveland, Ohio, to demonstrate in support of full school integration. Here a bystander, about to be restrained, grabs the arm of a picket in front of an East Side grade school. While a few people were knocked to the ground, order was restored quickly at this location. At the Murray Hill School, however, an unruly crowd of about 400--mostly young men--stopped scheduled picketing with a barrage of eggs, fruit and bottles. Police had to use their clubs to stop the attack. Integration leaders later called off the demonstration in order to avert further violence. --(Religious News Service Photo) FHA Reminds Citizens of Housincj Rules By Fred Cordova Strong lines of com- munication between the Federal Housing Adminis- tration and Western Washing- ton citizens it serves have been renewed to further a climate of good relationship in the areas of good government-insured housing and building. FHA's services were outlined recently to a representative group of state, civic and re- ligious leaders in an informal conference by Andrew S. (Andy) Hess, director of FHA's Seattle Insuring Office, which includes Western Washington west and north of the Columbia River. Commenting on the Executive Order by the late President John ANDY HESS Seattle FHA director F. Kennedy, Hess said: "In relating to equal oppor- tunity in housing, the order states that no program un- der the authority of the United States government shall per- mit discrimination of any kind in housing. President Lyndon B. Johnson immedi- ately reaffirmed the order by further instructions." Hess pointed out that FHA commissioner Philip N. Bron- stein has "by specific instruc- tions and regulations spelled out very clearly the policy and procedures of-the FHA, sup- porting the Executive Order." The largest insuring force of its type in the country, and re- sponsible for some one-third of the nation's residences, FHA is a government agency which in: sures mortgage and home im- provement loans. Loans are in- sured for new construction and existing housing. Single family and multi-family residences are covered. Equal Opportunity in Housing Certificates are issued to spon- sors of every proposed subdivi- sion who are applying for loan guarantees. FHA Form No. 2011 reads in part: %.. the undersigned agrees that he does not and will not decline to sell or otherwise make available to a prospec- tive purchaser because of his race, color, creed or national origin any of the properties involved in the said subdi- vision, tract or project. He further agrees that he will comply with state and local laws and ordinances prohibit- ing discrimination and that his failure or refusal to com- ply with this agreement and any such laws or ordinances shall be a proper basis for the Federal Housing Commis- sion to reject requests for future business with which the undersigned is identified or to take such other correc- tive measures as he may deem necessary to carry out (Continued on Page 2) Jewish Unit Defends Pius, Hits 'Deputy' BROOKLYN, N.Y. (NC) T h e largest Jewish community organization in the nation has issued a long and strongly worded defense of Pope Pius XII and criticism of the play "The Deputy" which is sched- uled to open in New York Feb- runty 26. The Brooklyn Jewish Com- munity Council, which de- scribes itself as "the authorized voice of Jewry in Brooklyn, wherein reside nearly one mil- lion Jews, the largest such pop- ulation in America," rejected "as contrary to history" the charge that Pope Plus failed to do all he could for Jews perse- cuted by the Nazis. "The Deputy," by German author Rolf Hochhuth, is sharp- ly critical of Pope Pins for his alleged failure to defend the Jews during World War II. The play has been produced in sev- eral European countries where it has stirred up controversy. The Brooklyn Jewish Com- munity Council cautioned the public against reaching a con- elusion "based on a theatrical production written for the Broadways of the world." Maximilian Moss, president of the Jewish Council, said its board of directors "concluded that the eternal values of truth, justice and human dignity so dear to the Jewish tradition make it the council's moral duty to speak out in denial of the accusation and in reaffirma- tion of the heartfelt apprecia- tion which the Jews who were directly affected and who sur- vived the H i t I e r holocaust themselves then publicly ex- pressed to Pope Pius XII." The Brooklyn division of the National Conference of Chris- tians and Jews warned that those who attend the play are doing "a disservice to the cause of Christian-Jewish relations." Pope Will Direct Relief Appeal To School Children NEW YORK (NC)A special radio broadcast of a message by Pope Paul VI on Ash Wednesday, Feb. 12, will inaugurate the 18th annual Bishops' Relief Fund Appeal to aid the world's needy. The Pope's message will be directed to some six million students in the nation's Catholic elementary and high schools. The broadcast will be carried by the country's major radio networks. Goal of the 1964 appeal is $5 million. In recent years the Catholic school students of the nation annually have raised $I millfon for the fund through sacrifices a n d contributions made throughout the period of Lent. Principal benefactor of the annual appeal is Catholic Re- lief Services--National Catho- lic Welfare Conference, the worldwide relief and rehabili- tation agency maintained by U.S. Catholics. In carrying out its mission of mercy in areas of distress and misfortune around the globe CRS-NCWC is motivated by a single criterion- need. The agency through its farflung pro- grams distributes food, medi- cines, clothing, other materials and affords services to the hun- gry, homeless and harried with- out regard to race, color or religion. Bishop Edward E. Swanstrom, CRS-NCWC executive director recalled that Pope Paul VI in his first Christmas message to the world in 1963 called atten- tion to "the great sufferings, the deep longings, the painful necessities which concern large sections of society or even en- tire peoples." The Pope pinpointed hunger as the first of the world's dis- tresses. He said: "It has now been scientifically proven to us that more than half of the hu. man race has not enough food. Entire generations of children, even today, are dying or suf- fering because of indescribable poverty. It is not merely pros- perity that is wanting to vast numbers, it is mere suffi- ciency." Alluding to such charitable endeavors as the Bishops' Re- lief Fund Appeal, the Pope said: "We are therefore open- ly in favor of everything that is being done today to help those who are devoid of the good required for the elemen- tary means of life." Statistics compiled by CRS- NCWC headquarters here dis- closed that during 1963 the world's largest private relief organization gave assistance to more than 40 million persons in some 70 countries throughout the world. The general relief fund cam- paign will be conducted in par- ishes throughout the nation from March 1 to 8, culminating with the traditional Laetare Sunday collection March 8.

Post Office officials said the choice of the design is up to Mrs. Jacqueline Ken- nedy. The stamp will be issued May 29, 'President Kennedy's birthday. The priest whose design was submitted for consideration is Andrew W. Vachon, S.J., chap- lain at Marymount Military Academy, Tacoma. Father Vachon knew the late Presi- dent's father, former Ambas- sador Joseph Kennedy, when the priest was a boy in Newton, Mass. His painting depicts Presi- dent Kennedy in profile against a background of the U,S. flag. A youth is shown looking up at the President. The painting hangs in a Ta- coma bank. A picture of Father Vachon and his painting appeared in last week's issue of The Progress.
