Decis|on Kueng added that European bishops were apprehensive that Americans would not share their basic attitudes. After all these preliminary anxieties, Father Kueng con- tinued, the council turned out to be an agreeable surprise. He said that at the council: --It was observed that bish- ops who had practically no Protestants or Orthodox in their countries shared the concern of His Holiness Pope dissenting votes (out of some John XXIII for Christian unity. -- D o g m a t i e definitions which would have "closed doors" were avoided. --The European bishops dis- covered that their American counterparts s h a r e d their "pastoral intentions." --An air of freedom, encour- aged by Pope John, per. meated the discussions and the voting. A particularly impressive re- sult of the council, according to Father Kueng, was the general cohsensus reached during the discussions. "If we had voted before dis- cussion," he stated, "the votes would have shown considerable disagreement. But during the discussion, opinions changed. All of the bishops present learn- ed from these discussions. All made progress by being exposed to the views of fellow bishops from other countries." When the votes were tallied, he stated, it was found that there was almost total unanim- ity. "On most questions," he said, "there were only 50 or 60 BOSTON, Mar ch 12 (NC) -- The Second Vati- can Council proved to be an agreeable surprise to those who feared it would be conducted along absolutist lines, an expert on the Christian unity movement said here. Rev. Hans Kueng, dean of the theologicaL faculty at the Uni- versity of Tuebingen (Ger- many), said that before the opening of the council m a n y Catholics interested in Christian unity feared it would have "a bad effect on the ecumenical movement." Father Kueng, who is in the U.S. on a lecture tour, said at a press conference that many feared the council might issue dogmatic definitions that would be misunderstood by non-Ca[he. lies. Experts from countries that have large non-Catholic ele- ments in their population, he continued, were concerned that bishops f r o m predominantly Catholic countries would not un- derstand the viewpoints formed in pluralistic societies. Father 2,000). In one case there were a little over 1O0." "This consensus was all the more astonishing," F a t h e r Kueng added, "because it was in the direction of progress and a serious renewal of the Church." He said that at the council's first session the "schemata" presented to the bishops were generally too numerous, too long, repetitious and not relat- ed to one another. The Swiss-born theologian referred to these schemata as "products of a theological school not representative of the Church as a whole." He said the schemata are now being revised and, most impor- tant, coordinated by a special commission. As a result, he added, the schemata to be presented to the second session of the council in September will be less theo- retical, more pastoral and more adapted to modern times. Father Kueng predicted that "there will be more decentrali- zation of the liturgy." "Its essence will be the same in every country," he explained, "but there will be concrete adaptations to local needs. It will be more easily understood by the faithful and they will be able to participate more fully." He said there would be no immediate adoption of the ver- nacular, but that the principle of its use would be accepted. After the council, he added, there will probably be a test period to determine how and where the vernacular may be most usefully introduced. Father Kueng is scheduled to take part in a theology collo- quium at Boston College April 15 and 16, following several other speaking engagements. The annual Archdiocesan Novena for Vocations to the Priesthood and the Religious Life will begin Sunday, March 17, and conclude Monday, March 25, the Feast of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The following prayer is to be recited after every Mass and at Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament in all Churches and Chapels in the Arch- diocese and in all grammar and high schools at the beginning of every class day. This Novena Prayer will replace the customary Prayer for Vocations that is said daily during the month of March. At the conclusion of the Novena proper, the regular daily Prayer for Vactions will be resumed until and including Sunday, March 31. Prayer O Lord Jesus Christ, strength of those who leave all things and follow Thee, raise up, we beseech Thee, the vocations which Thy Church needs. Help our young boys to understand the happiness which comes to the priest as he carries on the work of Christ and brings God Himself to the altar for man. Inspire them with a burning desire to share in this priest- hood. Call other young men to our brotherhoods and young women to our sisterhoods, where in the holy life of religious communities they may imitate Thy virtues, carry on the education, charitable and aposto- lic works of Thy Church and travel the open road to eternal bliss. Give us, dear Lord, zealous and apostolic priests, dedicated and self-sacrificing religious, brothers and sisters. Bless us abundantly with workers who will generously spend themselves for restoration of all things in Thee, and for the glorification of Thy Heavenly Father, Who, with Thee and the Holy Ghost, liveth and reigneth, forever and ever. Amen. (An Indulgence of seven years can be gained in the recitation of this prayer.)

"Do not be afraid of having too many children," he said, adding, "'and remember to give some of them to the Church." The Pope drew inspiration for the generaL tenor of his re- marks from the patron of the church, the Good Shepherd. "The Roman Pontiff as vicar of the Good Shepherd must think not only of the lambs who are close to him but also of those who are far away," he said. He spoke of the Good Shep- herd, and also Of the Pope, as one "who harms no one, seeks only good, and wishes to lead minds to the things of heaven." Then speaking of the Balzan Peace Prize, which had been presented to him three days ear- lier by former Italian President Giovanni Gronchi, Pope John said: "The Balzan prize is a rec- ognition of the Pope's efforts for peace. It is obvious that the Pope, like the Good Shep- ROME, March 11 (Ra- dio, NC)mReal peace is not found in the posses- sion of material blessings but in the joys of the spirit and in spreading kindness and brotherhood, His Holiness Pope John XXIII told the peo- ple of one of Rome's newly de- veloped districts. This visit to the Church of the Good Shepherd on the second Sunday of Lent Mar. I0 was the 25th such visit he had made. He started going to Lenten services in 1959, his first Lent as Bishop at various churches in the city of Rome. Says 'Progressive' Bishops in Majority (Continued from Page 1) episcopal college would be a the two-thirds majority against mere mouthpiece of the Roman Curia. "That these fears did not become true," he said, "is due first of all to the except- tional generosity of the Holy Father who in no way limited the full freedom of the council Fathers." Concerning the "progressive" outlook of the b i s h o p s, the Cardinal said: "The majority of bishops shares a moderate progressive tendency, and it appears that they will have seriousness and thoroughness and above all, freedom and openness, in which pending questions of practical and theoretical nature were put forward, considered and dis- cussed." Prior to the council, Cardinal Frings said, there had been doubts as to whether such a parliament with more than two and a half thousand deputies would be able to Work at all. There were also fears that the Official Southern Deanery A.C.C.W. the more conservative minor- ity." Cardinal Frings said on this score that the council Fathers are aware of the special encouragement Pope John gave them when he said that "old truths must be preached to an entirely changed world with new methods and in a new langu- age." Cardinal Frings holds it a good decision that Latin is the council's official language: "It makes possible a good under- standing, clear and exact form- ulation and it contributed much to the council's success". Vatican To Issue New Stamps VATICAN CITY (NC)--Vati- can City will issue a special series of stamps supporting the Campagin Against Hunger of the United Nations' Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) on March 21, 1963. The stamps will be of four values: 15, 49, 100 and 200 tire. They are reproductions of Mu- rifle's painting, "Multiplication of the Loaves and Fishes," and Raphael's tapestry of the mira- culous catch of fish.

It should be sufficient for those who are anxious about the fu. ture to think of children. Like children, we are all in hands of the Lord who helps us and assists us today and always." This last remark was taken by some to be a reference to the concern expressed in segments of the press following the re- port that Pope John had told Alexei Adzhubei, Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev's son-in-law, that he would receive Khrush- chev at the Vatican if he came WASHINGTON, March 12 (NC)mA national Catholic scholars' asso- ciation has entered the controversy over a deci- sion by administrators at the Catholic University of America which excluded four prominent theologians from taking part in a campus lecture series. The Catholic Commission on Intellectual and Cultural Affairs said in a statement March 12 it regrets that the decision im- plies a questioning of the right of the theologians to be heard. It said there have always been differences of opinion within the Church and adds: "Advocacy of conflicting opinions, and study and eriti- ensm of opposing doctrine, when their methods and aims Father Weigel Declines C.U. Comencement Bid WASHINGTON, March 7 (NC) --Rev. Gustave Weigel, S.J., of Woodstock (Md.) College said a previous speaking engagement prevented him from accepting an invitation to give the com- mencement address at the Cath- olic University of America grad- ii:i: uation exercises here June 9. Father Weigel was one of four priests refused clearance to address C.U. students during a Lenten lecture series because the four hold definite views on issues being debated at the Sec- ond Vatican Council. Father Weigel had been invited to give the commencement address by Msgr. William J. McDonald, university rector. The Jesuit told the rector he had accepted an invitation to speak at Alfred (N.Y.) Uni- versity on the same day. Meanwhile, a fourth school at the university joined criticism of the university administration for refusal to let the four priests speak at the lectures. The coun- cil of the faculty of the College of Arts and Sciences (under- graduates) was the latest of the institution's nine schools to voice objection. The whole fac- ulty of the school will consider the matter later. Previous criticism came from the faculties of the School of Sacred Theology, the School of Canon Law and the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. are informed by prudence and the charity of Christ, must always be, as they have been through all Christian history, wellsprings of the Church's intellectual life and of all development of its doe, trine." The statement was signed by the commission's executive committee. Members include eight lay and clerical scholars from a variety of institutions, ranging from Catholic Univer- sity itself to Yale, Harvard, California Institute of Technol- ogy and the University of Chi- cago. The controversy centers on a decision of university adminis- trators to remove the four theologians from a list of 12 speakers suggested for a Lent- en lecture series sponsored by the graduate student council. The four are: Rev. John Courtney Murray, S.J., and Rev. Gustave Weigel, S.J., both from Woodstock (Md.) College, a Jesuit seminary; Rev. God- frey Diekman, O.S.B., liturgi- cal scholar and editor of Wor- ship magazine, and Rev. Hans Kueng of the University of Tuebingen, Germany, a figure prominent in ecumenical coun- cil matters, chiefly because of his book, "The Council: Reform and Reunion." Msgr. William J. McDon- ald, rector of the university, has said the four were re- moved because they hold a "similar definite point of view" on Church issues and that the university's impar- tiality on these issues would be lost if they spoke at a university event. Signers of the commission's statement were: Stephan Kutt- ner, Catholic University, chair- man; Rev. William J. Rooney, Catholic University, executive director; Joseph P. Evans, University of Chicago; Agnes Mongan, Harvard University; Rev. Walter J. Ong, S.J., St. Louis University; Raymond J. Saulnier, Columbia University; William K. Wimsatt, Jr., Yale University, and Don M. Yost, California Institute of Tech- nology. The university's decision has been criticized by the teaching staffs of three of the institu- tion's nine schools and by the council of the faculty of a fourth school. In addition, it has drawn fire from numerous Catholic news- papers and magazines. Dearly Beloved in Christ: For sixteen consecutive years the Catholic Bish- ops' Relief Fund has been sponsoring shipments of relief supplies overseas, resettlement of many thou- sands of refugees throughout the world, assisting in fields of education, health and welfare regardless of race or creed. The principal means of supporting this manifold charity is the annual Bishops' Relief Collec- tion that is taken up in every Catholic Church throughout the United States Laetare Sunday, the middle of Lent, this year, March 24. During the recent Ecumenical Council the Bish- ops of the United States were shown very graphically the extensive work carried on by the Catholic Bish- ops' Relief Service for in the Council Bishops from all over the world, from every nation, from every race were collected together and were able to talk to each other. Their needs were made clear and their gratitude to the American people was reiterated over and over again. In fact, the Holy Father in his recent letter to the Bishops of the United States said, "We feel sure, therefore, that your appal this year to your faithful flocks will be made in a renewed personal conviction that the sacrifices of the past were made in a cause that is worthy and deserving and still vital." It is this conviction that has made the Catholic Bishops' Relief Service one of the largest American voluntary overseas agencies registerd with the United States Government. During the past year over 165 million dollars in money, food and clothLng were administered in more than 67 countries throughout the world. I am confident that the response of our beloved clergy and laity will continue to be in keeping with our noble tradition and provide yet another eloquent token of gratitude to Divine Providence for the multi- ple benefits and blessings that we have all received. For in this day and age, in the words of our Holy Father, Pope John XXIII, "No man can make the excuse that he is ignorant of the needs of his brother far away or that it is no concern of his to bring help." Praying every blessing upon you, I am Devotedly yours in Christ, Archbishop of Seattle N.B. The foregoing letter is to be read at all Masses in all churches and chapels of the Archdiocese Sunday, March 17, and the collection is to be taken up on Laetare Sunday, March 24. The Reverend Pastors of the Southern Deanery are requested to make the following announcement on Sunday, March 17.

Registration will commence at 10:00 a.m., the Board Meeting at 11:00, luncfieon at 12 noon with the general meeting following. Moderators, all deanery officers, presidents of affiliated organizations and activity chairmen are requested to attend the board meeting.

Corrigan, besides defending the law against the specific attacks, denies the re- levance of this argument be- cause these other provisions of the statute are not involved in the present case. London also maintains that 3"acobellis' rights under the 14th Amendment's due process clause were violated because the Ohio Supreme Court inter- preted the law's provisions re- lating to knowledge an intent differently from the trial court but "denied" Jacobellis the op- portunity to prepare his de- fense in the light of the. al- legedly new interpretation.
