L.A. CARDINAL RETURNS: Organization i For Council Called 'Superb' LOS ANGELES, March 13 (NC)--The organiza- tion for the coming Ecumenical Council is "simple i and superb," James Francis Cardi,nal McIntyre re- ported on his return from a nine-day meeting of the council's Central Preparatory Commission. The Archbishop of Los Angeles added that the Second Vatican Council, which will open in Rome in October, "could bring about untold changes--the pos- si, bility of world unity, a unity that has got to be spiritual." Cardinal Mclntyre said in an interview that one of the pos- sible results of the council could be to promote the reunion of the eastern churches and Rome. This could apply even to the Russians, he said. "The Rus- sians' hearts are crying to express their belief in Christ and His doctrine. The charity of the Church is what they want," he said. The Cardinal gave this picture of the "simple and superb" organization setup for the council. The work in preparation for the council began two years ago when all the bishops of the world were invited to submit questions and topics for discussion. There were more than 9,000 responses. Subcommissions of scholars from all over the world studied and discussed these topics. Then they prepared briefs dealing with matters of administration, discipline and policy. These briefs are submitted to the Central Preparatory Com- mission, which consists of 50 cardinals, bishops and heads of religious communities, aided by 20 leading theologians. Cardinal McIntyre said the procedure followed at meetings of the central commission is "very simple." The members assemble at 9:30 a.m. around a conference table in the Vatican's Hall of Congregations. Latin is the language used. Members have beforehand studied each brief to be considered during the meeting. ]'he brief is introduced by the chairman of the subcommittee which prepared it. Members then speak for or against the brief. When the discussion is finished, a vote is taken on the brief. The issue treated in the brief is then restated in conformity with the vote of the commission. The results are turned over to His Holiness Pope John XXIII, who makes the decision on presenting matters to the council proper. Cardinal McIntyre noted that the members of the central commission represent "practically all the nations of the world with their ethnic variations." Next to him at the conference table sat Stefan Cardinal Wyszynski, Primate of Poland, and Giusepe Cardinal Siri, Arch- bishop of Genoa. Across from him were cardinals from India, Great Britain, Canada and the Roman Curia. Neighboring Sees Aid Storm Victims ATLANTIC CITY, March 13 (NC)--The Camden diocese added its welfare resources to an emergency aid program established by local, state and Federal agencies in the wake of New Jersey's greatest coastal disaster of the century. Archbishop Celestine J. Dam- Headlines And Deadlines Gromyko Stages 'No Budge' Show By George N. Kramer, Ph.D. -Calm down! Don't worry. Everything is go- mg to be all right. Benny Goodman's or- chestra will go to the Soviet Union this year and tame the Kremlin bears with his celebrated sweet jazz music while the Bolshoi troupe will visit the U.S. to dazzle us with some versions of their ballet twists. Thet stage has been set by the terms of a new two-year agreement expanding the nu- merous kinds of exchanges be- tween the two countries. Meanwhile, dour-faced An- drie Gromyko is putting on a one-man show at Geneva called "No Budge" and try- ing to make the U.S. dance without benefit of Goodman jazz. While France is sitting this one out, Britain is standing on the sidelines urging Uncle Sam to join Gromyko in tripping the not-too-light fantastic to- ward what may end in a dance of death. The Soviet Foreign Minister rejected any kind of inspection controls for nuclear disarma- ment Tuesday and in effect dimmed all hope of reaching agreement on anything during the 17-nation conference which opened Wednesday. As expected, the Soviets planned to disrupt the foreign ministers' meeting so that Khrushchev might gee what he wanted in the first place--a summit. It is the same old story all over again. The Communists have amply demonstrated their lack of sincerity and honesty in the past when they insisted on conferences to re- solve, differences. They will demand agreement On their own terms or else they pervert the meetings into prop- aganda orgies by falsely accus- ing non-Communists as culprits while deceitfully insisting that they alone want peace. This hyprocrisy was ex- pressed again by Gr0myko when he repeated the sordid Soviet bromide that the reason (Continued on Page 10) iano, Bishop of Camden, who made an inspection tour of At- lantic and Cape May Counties resort areas battered by a vi- cious N o r t h Atlantic storm, ordered emergency supplies rushed to evacuation centers and asked the people of south- ern New Jersey to offer their prayers and contribute to a fund to aid the victims through Catholic Charities. The Archbishop issued a dispensation from the Lenten Sast and the Friday abstin- ence to all persons in the dis- aster area until the state of emergency is over. In a telegram to President Kennedy, Archbishop Damiano appealed for aid to the stricken coastline, joining in the plea of Gov. Richard J. Hughes that the erea be declared a disas- ter zone. The president in a telegram to Hughes advised that he was designating parts of the state a disaster area and authorizing a special allocation of Federal funds. Archbishop John J. Krol of Philadelphia offered financial assistance to both the Cam- den and Trenton dioceses through the Philadelphia of- fice of Catholic Charities. Several h e a v i I y damaged communities are in the Tren- ton diocese's Ocean County to the north of Atlantic City. As the Camden dincese's re- lief program got underway, a truckload of food supplies was assembled in Camden and dis- patched to evacuation centers in Cape May and Sea Isle City. Church property along ,the diocese's 53-m i 1 e stretch of coastline from Brigantine to Cape May suffered relatively moderate damage since most churches, schools and convents are situated off-beach. Presbyterian Church Is Now Newman Cen. PULLMAN, Wash. (NC)--The Spokane diocese has purchased the 60-year-old Greystone Pres- byterian Church here and in- tends to develop it into a $50,006 Newman center for Catholics attending Washington State University. Chancery officials said that in addition to the church the property purchased includes a parish house and garage. They said the property was purchased with money donat- ed to last year's diocesan development fund. Father Anion Flour, chaplain of the Newman Club at Wash- ington State University, said that there are about 750 Catho- lics enrolled at: the university, about 10 per cent of the student body.

They came from Arklow, County Wicklow, Ireland, four ),ears ago and, after first living in St. Mark Parish, Seattle, they moved to Holy Rosary Par- ish, Edmonds. The Hagen family includes: (left to right) Rosaleen, 17: Bill, 19; Ann, 9, (kneeling on floor); Mrs. Hogan holding GeraJdine, 5; Sally, 11: Mr. Hogan and Jim, 13. The children, thoroughly American in their ways now. were taught their lessons in Gaelic when they lived in Arklow. Hagans By Frances Farrell Vitulli EDMONDS--Perched high on a hill above Puget Sound, Mary and Patrick Hagen have built a lovely modern spit,t-level home. Seated in front of their picture window, the Hogans watch the ships and ferries ply back and forth out of Edmonds and recall the seaport town they were reared in--Arklow, County Wicklow, Ireland. It will be the first St. Patrick's Day in their new home for the Hogans but it won't be their first March 17 away from Arklow. Four years ago, Patrick Hagen (or "Paddy" as his wife calls him) came to this country. A carpenter by trade he soon found work in Seattle and within three months his wife and six children joined him. The children are: Bill, 19; Rosaleen, 17; Jim, 13; Sally, 11: Ann, 9; and Geraldine, 5. Their home, not quite a year old, was built almost entirely by Mr. Hagen. The Hogans chose the Seattle area because'they had heard from the sailors of Arklow who had visited here that the Puget Sound climate was a good deal like Ireland's ("with much less wind") and there was water all around. "Our primary reason for coming to the United States was the better life we felt our children would have," Mr. Hagen explained. As for the children, all born in Arklow, they have quickly become Americanized though strangely enough, the English language proved somewhat a barrier. The children had been taught Gaelic in Arklow although their parents speak little of the ancient language. "On the east coast of Ireland it isn'l used much, but they do make the children use it all the time in school," Mrs. Hagen said. In Holy Rosary Parish As members of Holy Rosary Parish the Hogans are very Enjoy American Life fond of their pastor. Rev. John McMahon and his assistant, Rev. Michael Crehan a fellow countryman who has been in the U.S. only a few months. Mrs. Hagen is a member of the parish guild and the children attend CCD classes. Bill is in the Air Force on leave before reporting to Travis Air Force Base, Calif., and the other chil- dren attend Edmonds public schools. Mrs. Hagen denies having any old Irish recipes, but she does like to make steak and kidney pie, corned beef and cab- bage and trifles for dessert. "But I can't make soda bread with American flour. It doesn't turn out properly," she sighed. As for Mr. Hagen, his favorites are American cookies and cake of any type. The Hogans find their closest link with Ireland in the ship docks at the foot of the hill. I0 Cousins Visited "It reminds us of Arklow. of course," Mrs. Hagen smiled. "And there is always a cousin or friend arriving--most of the Arklow population are sailors. Last year i had 10 cousins visit US." Mr. Hagen's father, a retired sea captain, visited the Hogans for a year before moving on to visit a daughter in Australia. At the present time Mr. Hagen's brother-in-law is staying with them trying to find a home for his wife and children before bringing them out from Boston. Modern Home The Hagen home is quite modernly American at first glance until one spots the ceramic shillelagh on the end table. "They make those in the pottery plant in Arklow and sell them as souvenirs." Mr. Hagen smiled. And then there's the painting just as you come in the front door--a painting of Arklow complete with sailing vessels an- chored in the bay and the smoke stacks of the pottery plant in the background. And as St. Patrick's Day arrives do the Hogans feel any twinges of homesickness for the old country'? "Not yet," Mr. Hagen laughed. "]'his is our home forever." Will Fight To Finish For Bus Rides JEFFERSON CITY, Mo., March 13 (NC)A statewide or- ganization formed here to ob- tain state-financed bus trans- portation for pupils of private schools will "fight to the fin- ish" for its objective, its chair- man said. The statement was made March 10 by James P. Cox of Jefferson City, chairman of the Missouri Committee for Equal School Bus Transportation. Some 60 delegates attended the organization's meeting here, and the majority of them were said to be Catholic parents. The organization issued a statement saying its purpose is to "spend its time, efforts and finances calling upon the Gen- eral Assembly to pass legisla- tion to give private and paro- chial school children the same type of bus transportation given public school children."

Pastor's Election Is Confirmed WASHINGTON, March 13 (NC)--His Holiness Pope John XXIII has confirmed the elec- tion of Father John Bassoul, pastor of a Melkite Rite parish in Boston, as Melkite Rite Archbishop of Horns, Syria, it was announced here. Archbishop Egidio Vagnozzi, Apostolic Delegate in the Unit- ed States, announced the ac- tion in a press statement March 12. The nominations were made by Melkite Patriarch Maxi- mos IV Saigh of Antioch and confirmed by the Pope. The Melkites are Catholics of the Byzantine Rite whose liturgy is normally in Arabic, but who use local vernaculars. including English and Spanish, in some places. Centered in the Near East. they total about 375.000 people, and have about 50.000 members with 26 par- ishes in the United States. Vocation Prayers Are Requested By Archbishop The annual Archdiocesan Novena for Vocations to the Priesthood and religious life will begin Satur- day, March 17, the feast of St. Patrick, and conclude Sunday, March 25, the feast of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The novena prayer will be recited after every Mass and at Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament in all churches and chapels of the Archdiocese and at the start of the class day in all schools of the Arch- diocese. The novena prayer will replace the prayer for vocations being said daily during March. The daily prayer will be resumed following the close of the novena. The Most Reverend Archbishop Thomas A. Connolly exhorts members of the Archdiocese to "pray daily that God will bless the young men and women of your parish with vocations and your own family as well, if that is His will." In stressing the importance of vocations in this area, Archbishop Connolly said that the Church in the Northwest "is being held back by a lack of priests and religious. "Our institutions here are undermanned," the Archbishop emphasized. "New parishes could be established immediately and new schools, particu- larly high schools, could be erected had we a suf- ficient number of religious to staff them." The novena prayer can be found in the Official on Page 3. In Central America: Bishops Warn Of Russian Inroads MANAGUA, Nicaragua, March 13 (NC)The 38 Bishops of Central America report "with deep sad- ness" tha-all Central America is infected with Com- munism. The region "was a fertile field for the germ, and the whole body became ill," they said in a joint letter. Cen- tral America's six republics have about 11.3 million Catho- lics out of a total population of 12 million. The Bishops took issue with the term "Communist danger." "It is not correct to speak today of the 'Communist dan- ger' in Central America and Panama," they said. "We already have Com- munism in abundance, within our own people. Unfortunately, it is a reality." ]'hey urged all nations of Central America to bury their differences in a joint effort against Communism, through mutual aid, improvement of production, redistribution of dense populations to under- peopled lands and a series of social reforms supported by effective legislation. "Away with exaggerated na- tionalism," they declared Although admitting that com- plex economic and social re- forms require judicious study and preparation, the Bishops asserted such reforms "must not be put off any longer." Needed farm and labor legis- lation "involves surgery that must be borne bravely." They said the Church's secial doctrine offers "ade- quate means" for the solu- tion of Central America's problems. The statement, dated Christ- mas Day, has now been pub- lished by Managua s Catholic weekly, E10bservador. Among other poiOts made by the Bishops were: t "Since the fall of Cuba under a Communist regime, a flood of pro-Castro, demonstra- tions, propaganda and Com- munist-inspired r e v o 1 t s has swept over our peoples."
