Connolly, Archbishop of Seattle (right), points out the main entrance to the proposed South Seattle archdiocesan high school, depicted in an architect's sketch. Looking on are Very Rev. Ailbe M.

The South Seattle school will be the first of five immediate co.instructional high schools to be constructed.

Should Larger Percentage In Poll Noto.., ,,Suggest Favors Private School Aid ""r u'a''n ,TO, N.J., Feb. 11 (NC)--A majority of The American Institute of Public Opinion, which conducts the Policies UNITED NATION, N. Y., Feb. 12 (NC)--United Nations involvement i n t h e A s i a n Population Conference to be held in India in December has been questioned by three members of the U. N. Population Com- mission. Vittorio Castellano of Italy, Jacques Mertens de Wilmar of Belgium, and Francisco An- tonio Carillo of El Salvador all expressed reservations re- garding certain items on the proposed agenda of the con- ference. The Population Commission was considering the report of the preparatory committee for the Asian conference, which is to take place under the auspices of the U.N. Economic Commission f o r Asia and the Far East (ECAFE). The proposed agenda in- cludes an item on "policies de- signed to affect population trends," such as family plan- ning and public health mea- sures, an item requiring re- ports on measures taken by governments to limit popula- tion growth, and a final item calling for conclusions and re- commendations. The three commission members stressed that pop- ulation policies are strictly the province of governments and urged the United Nations to keep clear of decisions re- gardinueh policies. Castellano asserted that the prestige and authority of tl.e U.N. could be damaged if it accepted responsibility for such decisions. He said he consider- ed the request for government reports and the item on family planning and public health measures in the context of policies designed to affect the rate of population growth to be "tendentious subjects." The effects of pubic health measures (such as lower death rates and longer life expect- " " d " ancy) cannot be neutrahze , Castellano said, by family plan- ning measures. persons expressing an opinion in a nationwide poll said they are in favor of Federal aid to parochial and other private schools. Results of the poll indicated a sharp change in public opinion on the question as compared to two years ago. Gallup Poll reporters asked a representative sampling of the nation's adults the following question: If the Federal government in Washington decides to give money to aid education, should the money go only to public schools, or should the money go to help Catholic and other private schools as well? Forty-nine per cent said such aid should go tO Catholic and other private schools; 44 per cent favored aid to public schools only; and seven per cent expressed no opinion. Chancje In Opinion When the identical question was asked two years ago by Gallup Poll reporters, 57 per cent of Americans polled felt that Federal aid should go only to public schools; 36 per cent favored such aid for Catholic and other private schools; and 7 per cent expressed no opinion. Laymen Presented 'Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice' Medals VATICAN CITY, Feb. 11 (Radio, N.C.)Arch- bishop Josyf Slipyi of Lviv, sole survivor of the Byzantine R i t e Catholi Bishops of the Ukraine, re. ceived a hero's welcome from His Holiness Pope John XXIII when he reached here after 18 y e a r s of imprisonment and house arrest in the Soviet Union. Pope John greeted his release as "a stirring consolation for which we humbly thank the Lord.' The release of the 76-year-old Primate of the UkraiLe was an- nounced in Moscow on Satur- day. February 9. The PoIm con- firmed the news on Sunday morning as he was blessing the Priest Saves Boy's Life; Declines Unusual Reward DAVAO, P.I. (NC)--A young missioner with a Jeep, filling in for the town's ambulance, saved a young boy's life here. In the dark of night, Mary- knoll Father Edward M. Ger- lock, of Binghamton, N.Y., rushed the ll-year-old boy suffering from a ruptured ap- pendix, across dangerous, rug- ged trails to the hospital over 100 miles away. The boy, Domingo Casas, was saved by the operation. Then the young priest talked to the hospital staff and had the boy listed as a hospital charity case. The boy's family learned of all that the young priest had done for their son. Next day they came to the mission to thank him. The father ex- plained to Father Gerlock: "Padre I can never repay you for all that you did. We have no money. But I want to give you my boy. He will be strong soon and he will be a good worker." It took all of 30 minutes for the Maryknoller to explain to the grateful father that he could not accept such an offer but was only glad to help out. cornerstone of the new Lom- bard seminary in Rome. That s am e afternoon Archbishop Slipyi was in the Pope's private chapel praying at the side of the Supreme Pontiff to whose office he had remained stead- fastly loyal through 18 years of suffering. Tensions Diminish The dramatic release of Arch- bishop Slipyi from confinement is interpreted here as being a first visible sign of a relaxing of tensions between the Holy See and the Soviet Union. There is no specific official declaration to this effect. Nor is it possible to deduce it di- rectly, since a mask of silence has been clamped on all com- petent sources in the Vatican which might throw light on the Archbishop's freedom. But a change of policy can be deduced by piecing to- gether bits of information un- officially I e a k e d to Italian journalists and later identi- fied by competent sources as being true.

Willard Wirtz told a Catholic group here a new form of collective bargaining is developing and the Federal government is plan- ning to aid it. Wirtz spoke February 8 to the John A. Ryan Forum sponsored by the Catholic Council on Working Life. The forum is named for the late Msgr. Ryan, first director of the Social Action Department of the Na- tional Catholic Welfare Confer- ence. The L a b o r Secretary said that the new movement in col- lective bargaining is to make arrangements for the parties to deal, during the contract per- iod, with mutual problems, such as adjustment to automation. These discussions, he said, are intended to prevent the parties from waiting until the contract has expired and two or three years of problems and disagreements have ac- cumulated, he said. "I suggest that the govern- ment must respond to this new form," he said, noting that the Federal Mediation Service has already begun through its ef- forts to supply parties in na- tionally important negotiations with fact-finding studies. John XXIII has expressed his "profound grief" over the plight of 470,000 Catholics in southern Sudan who are being deprived of the comforts of their religion. Father Endrizzi's letter was in reply to a statement by S. A. M. Salih, press and informa- tion officer, of the Sudan Em- bassy in Washington, which was published by the News. The member of the Sons of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, expelled from the Sudan in January, said while there may be some religious freedom in the northern part of the coun- try, there is none in the southern part. There were few missioners among 102 expelled from last November to January engaged in education b e c a u s e most members of the educational staff were expelled between 1957 and 1962 "since the con- fiscation of our schools." The only true reason for ex- pelling the missionaries was that they as instructors and spiritual guides of the Chris- tians are by the very nature of their work interfering with the state's aim of stifling Christian- ity in southern Sudan," Father Endrizzi wrote. "The missionaries, therefore, have apparently become un- wanted witnesses to the anti- Christian policy of the state." In Today's Progress...

Kramer, Ph.D. There is really nothing to worry about this week. The S o v i e t troops and hardware in Cuba areno threat to the U.S. Khrushchev himself has given this assurance. He may not be too reliable, however, because he said he didn't know exactly how many Soviet troops are presently in Cuba, but they offered no threat because they were only instructing Cubans in the Use of modern weapons--defensive weapons, of course. We have been assured that all Soviet offensive weapons have been withdrawn from Cuba and all the Red soldiers would be leaving "in due course," ac- cording to a letter from Khrushchev to President Ken- e nedy, which has not yet been made public. "In due course" mlght mean never, or until they are pushed out. At least, until they shall have served their purpose. President Kennedy is report- ed to have written to Khrush- chev about the matter this week, and U. S. Ambassador to Moscow, Foy D. Kohler, is ex- pected to press the issue when he reaches the Kremlin. It is about time somebody blew the whistle on the dilly- dallying tactics of the Soviets, which continue to endanger the safety of the Western. Hemi- sphere.

Con- holly, Archbishop of Seattle. The program is long-range in scope and will require sev- eral years for completion. To help finance the project, Arch- bishop Connolly also announced today the establishment of the First A n n u a I Archdiocesan Development Fund campaign in which every Catholic of the Archdiocese will be asked to participate. Minimum Goal Set Minimum goal of the cam- paign has been set at $1.5 mil- lion and the all-out effort to raise this sum will be con- ducted in all 112 parishes of the Archdiocese. "The Catholic high school," said Archbishop Connolly, "is the keystone in the arch of Catholic education. It is not only necessary for the main- tenance of our faith and the continuance of the work of the Church in the next generation but it is and will be the great bulwark of the State in the years that are to come." "We are still passing through the second pioneering stage in the history and the develop- ment of the Archdioce.4e. There is a continuing need for US to look ahead and to make ample provision for the future growth ol  the Church in this area and for the spiritual development and training of its youth. : "Such a program of expan- sion requires a financial out- lay of no small measure for it is concerned with the con- struction of new high schools as well as with the proper provision of other needed facilities. These projects are the responsibility of the Archdiocese as such rather than of any individual parish."
