The final vote was 69 to 17. The bill provides for $300 illion annually for the next ve years in loans for con- struction o f clessrooms, li- braries and laboratories; au- thorizes 212,500 four-year schol- arships over the next five years at an estimated cost of $924 million; and authorizes $50 mil- lion annually for five years in matching grants to help build community junior colleges. D The measure goes to con- ferenee with the house which January 30 passed the $1.5 billion bill providing for con- struction funds but no schol- arships. Prior to the final vote the senate defeated by 72 to 15 an amendment sponsored by Sen. Sam J. Ervin, Jr., of North Carolina which would have prohibited use of federal loans by private or church- related colleges. An amendment sponsored by Sen. Pat McNamara of Michi- gan to tack on nn administra- tion bill to aid public grade and high schools was defeated by voice. The religious issue was raised in the Senate during de- bate prior to the vote on its program. Senator Irvin noted that the original bill made no distinc- tion between public and private institutions, including t h o s e conducted by church groups, in assigning aid. He said this "clearly vio- lates" the First Amendment to the Constitution. He stated this amendment "prohibits Congress from giving aid to any institution for the pur- pose of teaching the tenets of any religion." Supporters of the administra- lion's college aid plan moved quickly to head off. controver- sy over the religious question raised by the Ervin amend- ment. Sen. Wayne Morse of Ore- con, floor manager for the bill, and Sen. Lister Hill of Ala- bama, Labor Committee chair- man, cosponsored an amend- ment February 5 to bar Fed- eral loans for classroom con- struction in divinity schools or for facilities for religious in- struction or worship. This amendment would bring the measure in line with a ver- sion passed earlier by the House of Representatives. It would leave priwate church- supported colleges eligible for Federal loans for academic fa- cililies. subscriptions and St. Louise, Bellevue, was third with 154.

Last year, the Senate passed his proposal for Federal aid to public schools. But the House rejected it and a key factor was the contro- versy over aiding parochial and other private schools.

Pope John announced the date for the eouncii February 2, the feast of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin--three years and eight days after he first revealed his intention to summon all the Catholic bish- ops of the world for a 21st ecumenical council. He made the date known in a "muto proprio," a document drawn up and issued on his own initiative and personally signed by him. The document is not an actual summons to the council. That was issued in the bull of convocation which the Pope published Christmas Day of 1961. In the bull, Pope John specified that titular bishops, who do not have a strict right under Canon Law to attend councils, are invited to the Second Vatican Council.

"Let us then, in the midst of all our detailed and tech- nieai preparations for the Common Market," said the Bishop, "not neglect to think and persuade ourselves about what it entails in terms of moral caliber. "We are meeting, in the current phrase a moment of truth. Let us see and acce, pt that a challenge faces us, simply as men and women to prove what we are made d." here. "We ought to carry out some moral stocktaking even before we go into other matters," the Bishop said January 30 at the opening meeting of the Mange- meat Students of the Catholic Workers College. "Having a look at ourselves would be an advisable kind of thing if there were no Common Market," said the Bishop, "and it will be rather more than ad- visable if we are not found dlh,worthy of admission to that 'body." Bishop Philbin declared that perhaps the European Common Market is just the instrument the Irish nation needs to jostle it out of its complacency and lethargy.

The motu proprio recalls that Pope John issued a state- meat last Christmas Day an- nouncing that the couneii would take place in 1962, and states that the date for the opening is being announced now so that the participants can plan their schedules ac- cordingly. The Pope again appealed for prayers for the success of the council. "We can do no less." he said, "than exhort once more all Our sons, together with all the clergy and the Christian people who await it with great anticipation, to in- tensify ever more their pray- ers to God for the happy suc- cess of this undertaking . . ;' The time lag between Pope John's initial announcement of the councilJanuary 25, 1959- and the date for the opening is well under the five years which elapsed for the last council-- the Vatican Council of 1869-70. Pope Pius IX first revealed his intention to convoke a council December 1864. It did not open until December 8, 1869. That council lasted 316 days. It was adjourned sud- denly on October 26, 1876, after Rome had been taken by Piedmontese troops, thus ending the Papal States.

Murphy, O.M.I., Port Chaplain and President National Catholic Apostleship of the Sea Con- ference: "To voice from me The Prog- gross is like a near and far. It's the voice of young and old, the holy and the mighty, but also the voice of *the poor, the silent and the persecutel. It tolls of good, clean literature and wholesome, worthwhile movies. It's the voice of fair play for the whole community. It is the voice of truth, honesty and jus- rice in ell facets of life and, above all, it is the voice of the clergy, laity, the Archbishop and the Holy Father. Mrs. H. T. Buckner, past president Seattle University Guild, 1223 Spring St., St. James Cathe- dral Parish: "I keep up on ell the Catholic activities with The Progress. I .enjoy read- ing the news of the clubs and always take a look to see who's in the pictures of parish activities. Then I do cut out the Legion of Decency list and keep it as a guide."

He received the last for it, and he has personally attended their meetings to spur on their work. Longest of the ecumenical councils was the 19th, the Coun- cil of Trent. It dragged on from 1545 to 1563, during the reigns of three popes. In con- trust, none of the first four councils lasted as long as four months. One of them, the fourth, at Chalcedon, lasted only three weeks. Shortly after becoming Pope in 590, St. Gregory the Great referred to the first four councils--Nicea in 325, Constantinople in 381, Ephesus in 431 and Chalcedon in 451--and declared: "On these as on a four- square stone rises and stands the strueture of faith and of eaeh one's life and action. Whosoever does not cling to their solidity, even though he be a stone, lies outside the strueture." In setting October 11 for the opening of the council, the Pontiff put major stress on the ancient doctrine that Mary is Mother of God rather than on more modern Marian defini- tions, which are viewed by some Christians as a stumbling block to unity. "We have especially chosen this date," the Pope said, "be- cause it links us with the memory of the great Council of Ephesus, which was of ex- treme importance in the history of the Church." Actually, the Council of Ephe- sus-held in the early Christ-, ion center which had been visited by St. Paul, and whose ruins are located about 30 miles southeast of the western Turk- ish city of Izmir--opened Jund 22, 431, and concluded that September. Three other ecumenical coun- cils- Chalcedon in 451, Con. .staninople in 869 and Vierme in 1311--opened within a week before or after October 11. The feast of the Divine Maternity of Mary October 11 was made a feast of the univer.- sol Church in 1931 by Pope Plus XI in an encyclical commemor. ating the 15th centenary of the Council of Ephesus.

Probably the most catas- trophic incident occurred in Honolulu Buy when Attorney General Robert Kennedy's boat dunked him into the water. "It was nothing," he said, as he swam out, smiling. Even Khrushchev remained quiet, something he has been doing for 3ome time, and that m itself is an inauspicious omen. Instead of being a week of disaster, there were some bright splashes in the news. For instance, President Ken. nedy's proclamation last Sat- urday banning almost all trade with Cuba. This was undoubtedly news to many people who were un- der the impression that all trade hod been suspended a long time ago. Actually, the U.S. merely stopped buying Cuban sugar and prohibited the exportation of strategic materials to Cuba. It still conducted a brisk trade amounting to some $50 million annually with that country. This is now stopped, thus depriving Castro's regime of a much-needed ineome ex- pressed in American dollars.
