SPECIAL COLLECTION SUNDAY: Bishops "We are all equally responsible for the under- nourished peoples . . ." Pope John XXIII said in "Mater et Magistra" and in every Catholic church in the United States a collectLon will be taken this Sun- day, April 1, to aid those undernourished peoples throughout the world. The collection is for the Catholic Bishops' Re- lief Fund which supports Catholic Relief Services which, in turn, gives aid to the destitute in 67 coun- tries without regard to race, creed or color. The donation that is placed in the collection bas- ket in Bellingham or Everett or Olympia or Seattle may soon find its way to Hung Kong or Laps or Cal- cutta or Quemoy. In Hong Kong and Quemoy, refugees arrive by ANNOUNCED IN NEW ORLEANS: 1962 North American Liturgical Week Seattle August 20-23 Parochial Schools Seek Are Open To All Catholic Children the thousands, fleeing Red China. Living in shacks, tents, cellars and roof tops, these refugees depend on Catholic Relief Services for food, housing, cloth- ing and medicines. In Laps, uprooted natives depend on us for help as they leave their Communist-guerrilla infested countryside. In Calcutta the destitute are adjudged a drag on theLr country's economy because they lack the nour- ishment required for steady toil and education effort. These are only four areas in only four of the 67 countries your dollars will go to through the Catholic Bishops' Relief Fund. The Bishops' Relief Fund agency operates at one NEW ORLEANS, March 28 (NC) -- Archbishop Joseph F. Rummel announced "all Catholic children may apply for admission to the Catholic schools" of the New Orleans Archdiocese at registration time for the 1962-63 school session. The prelate's directive did not use the words "desegregation" or "negroes" but said it applied to all schools "both elementary and secondary, paro- chial and private," and that registration should be "according to accepted educational standards." The Archbishop's announcement was made at a meeting of priests of the Archdiocese March 27 at Notxe Dame Seminary here. The announcement said the Archdiocesan school office reports that present enrollment in Catholic elementary schools totals 61,025 while Catholic secondary schools have 14,682 students. It also said more than 5,000 eightk graders took the high school placement test February 3 and 10. It was indicated the ever growing number of Headlines L And Deadlines DeGaulle Knows I) Sovies By George N. Kramer, Ph.D. Those who questioned the wisdom of President Charles De Gaulle for making a compact with the Algerian rebels may have had a point but one can scarcely contend that he was wrong when he refused to send his foreign minister to the Ge- neva conference because noth- ing would be achieved. He was so right, not because he made an accurate guess but because he understands the Soviets. What was widely heralded and officially booked as a dis- armament conference turned out to be mostly a prolonged and fruitless hassle over Ber- lin. The foreign ministers have now gone home, leaving subor- dinates to kill time wrangling over non-essentials until June 1 when the 18-member commit- tee is scheduled to make a re- port to the UN General As- sembly. We hope this will not furnish another excuse for the U. S. to delay nuclear testing in the at- mosphere, despite President Kennedy's promise to do so to- ward the end of April. Anyhow, after a two-week round of pleasant dinner ses- sesions and "cordial" ex- changes, Secretary of State Dean Rusk rendered a hopeful report to President Kennedy. As one reporter stated it, Rusk flew home "with a sense of achievement despite the ab- sence of progress on the is- (Continued on Page 5) Funds of the lowest--if not the lowest--administrative cost in its fields.

There are numberless persons in need of dona- tions from the Seattle Archdiocese.

In past years the generosity of the people of the U.S. has not gone unrewarded. As the Most Reverend Archbishop Thomas A, Connolly said in his message last week to the clergy and faithful of this Archdiocese: "Because you have cared in the past, immeasur- able good has come to the world and to you. Re- calling the words of Pope Plus XII that "The face of the world can be renewed with a victory of Charity," we once again urge your generous re- sponse to this appeal and pressing need."

Registration dates have been set for April 13 and 14, with hours to be set by each pastor or school principal for each of the two days. The registration days are intended primarily for chil- dren entering kindergarten or first grade and students en- tering first year high school next September. The announcement said that students already enrolled in a Catholic school w il 1 indicate during the week of April 8 their intent to continue in this school during the 1962-63 school year. Among those present at the meeting were Coadjutor Arch- bishop John P. Cody, Auxiliary Bishop Louis A. Caillouet and Msgr. Lueien J. Caillouet, vicar general of the Archdiocese. The Citizens' Council attrib- uted the integration decision to Coadjutor Archbishop John P. Cody of New Orleans. The integration of schools, both public and Catholic, has been a focal point of contro- versy here for years. Arch- bishop Joseph P. Rummel of New Orleans announced in 1956 that the integration of Catholic schools was under study, but a group calling itself the Associa- tion of Catholic Laymen was set up to block integration and the move was subsequently postponed. In July, 1959, Archbishop Rummel said Catholic schools would be integrated no later than the New Orleans public schools. Jackson G. Ricau, executive director of the Citizen's Coun- cil, issued the following state- ment on the subject of the al- : ::%i: legedly impending integration of Catholic schools here: "The South Louisiana Citi- zens' Council learned today, March 24, t h a t Archbishop Cody has definitely decided to integrate grades one through 12 of the Catholic schools this coming September.

WASHINGTON, March 26 (NC)A government conference to explore what schools should teach about the ideals of democracy was opened with a Federal official's plea for defense of individual free- dom. U.S. Commissioner of Education Sterling M, McMurrin reviewed March 26 his interpretation of the philosophy behind American democracy and edu- cation's role in preserving it. He said the nation today is in "deadly peril" from internal forces which he did not name, but which he said seek to endanger intellectual freedom in the name of national security. McMurrin also asked that education be used more fully to prepare Americans for "the new world- inindedness" which he said must replace provincial attitudes and local and national' isolations.
