Month, The Progress pre- sents a series o/ "broad- casts" /rum St. Edward Seminary. Prepared by seminarians, the material was used in actual radio releases/or the purpose of giving an intinate picture of the seminary and the everyday life o/ the stu- dents  the future priests o/ the Northwest. (The schedule o/classes, study, recreation and prayer is described in the /ollowing article.) Last week, we gave you a short sketch of the physical setting and his- tory of St. Edward's Seminary, Kenmore. This week we want to answer the question most often asked about St. Edward's: How does it differ from other schools? Is it a kind of religi- ous boarding school, or what? St. Edward's is a training school for diocesan priests. Its first concern is to serve the parishes and schools of the Archdiocese of Seattle, though it also trains some students for other dioceses of the Pa- cific Northwest. The formation program cov- ers all levels of development-- physical, mental, social and religious. The school year fol- lows the usual pattern. Students come in early September and Individual Freedom Is Plea (continued from Page 1) o r d e r," he said. "It was Christianized as the b a s i o tenet that the rationality of man is the image of God. "And it became the chief ground for modern science and for the foundation of modem humanism with its liberal doc- trine of man and its optimistic conception of human history." McMurrin, in explaining his belief that man's freedom from the claims of "absolutistic phi- Iosophy" is basic to the success of culture, said that at the heart of freedom is the concept of the person taken as an in- dividual. "This individualism," he said, "must be the keystone of any attempt to assess our institu- tions or judge our social ar- rangements." The nation, he said, faces to- day internal forces "that are already injuring the spirit and morale of our people." "They are raising t h e i r heads in a shrewd and calcu- lating manner that deceives large numbers of the unsus- pecting and even promises to endanger intellectual freedom in the name of national se- curity. "Such efforts must be resist. ed with great strength, for the loss of that freedom would en- tail the loss of most everything that is precious in the founda- tions of our society," he said. Education, he said, "must be employed to more adequately prepare us for the new world- mindedness that must replace" provincial attitudes and local and national isolations. Representatives o f Catholic institutions invited to the con- ference were Father Gustave J. Weigel, S.J., professor at Wood- stock (Md.) College, a Jesuit seminary; Sister Mary Josetta, president of St. Xavier College, Chicago, and Father William J. Dunne, S.J., associate secretary of the College and University Department of t h e National Catholic Educational Associa- tion. University Cites Dr. Waish And Paul Horgan WASHINGTON, M a r c h 28 (NC)--Dr. William B. Welsh, founder and president of the Project HOPE people-to-pen- ple medical aid program, and Paul Horgan, winner of t h e Pulitzer Prize for history in 1955, received honorary doc- torates from Georgetown Uni- versity h e r e at the school's Founder's Day convocation. Welsh received a doctorate of science and Horgan a doc- torate of humane letters March 22. Father Edward B. Bunn, S.J.. university president, said both men "brilliantly illustrate in their several ways the ideals of service of God, of country and of their fellow myra" They are home on vacation through the summer months and the Christmas holidays. At regular intervals during the course of the scholastic year, the students are permitted to go home or to the city for a day. Otherwise they are in resi- dence at the seminary day and night. At first this isolation may seem over-strict; but long ex- perience has proven that its advantages far outweigh the disadvantages. Distractions are kept at a minimum; and the intensive, well-balanced seminary program has opti- mum efficiency. The minor seminary pro- gram, covering four years of high school and the first two years of a college of liberal arts, is designed to develop men of outstanding Christian character. The graduates of St. Edward's enter a major semi- nary to complete their training before ordination. To a man, then, from freshmen in high school to sophomores in col- lege, the students of St. Ed- ward's are united in a com- mon ideal, the priesthood. Shar- ing a. common goal, they also share their interests and en- thusiasms to a degree quite unique among, educational in- stitutions. The point of orientation for all activities is ever the same: to become an ordained minister of 'Jesus Christ in the modern world. How is this ideal to be achieved? For practical pur- poses, we can divide seminary life into three categories: spirit- ses, and recreational activities. Each of these three categories will be discussed in turn. For now, suffice it to sy that the standards of St. Edward's are demanding. On the day of his ordination each student will be expected to be a capable religious lead- er. His education must measure up to what is offered by the best outside schools both in quality and in scope. This means first-hand knowledge of science as well as religion, and of art as well as public speaking. His moral character must be mature and strong. He must learn to be at ease in any circle of people, from the highest to the lowest; and he must be able to inspire others by the force of his example as much as by the pursuasiveness of his words. Finally, his physical devel- opment must be such as will equip him for the strenuous round of duties of a priest in today's fast moving world. To attain these objectives, the routine at St. Edward's is necessarily carefully balanced and closely regulated. Each day begins and ends with as- semblies tor prayer; and some form of prayer punctuates all other activities. Over half of the waking hours, between 5:40 in the morning until 9:30 at night, are devoted to class and study. On full class days the long recreation is between three and five in the after- noon. Such is the substance of the seminarian's life. But it is not the whole story. There are movies, plays, hikes, stu- letics. You will hear more of this later. Now let us end with a word about the students, and how they are selected. Some people imagine a seminary student is unlike other young men. They think every seminarian is docile, reserved, and pious by nature. But this is not true. The average seminarian, like any average American youth, has a passion for baseball, movies, and apple pie. He is as likely to prefer a good meal to a good book as any other student. Hebits of industry, good manners and good taste come by dint of long, hard work. In short, a priest is made, not born. It is true, however, that a seminarian has a sense of purpose and seriousness un- usual and often lacking at his age. The seminarian knows what he wants in life, and he is aware of what demands he must fulfill to achieve it. How ere seminarians selec- ted? Although new students may enter any one of the six classes, most newcomers each year enter as freshmen in high school. Applicants are screened before they are ac- cepted. They must be highly recommended by their pastors and school teachers as promis- ing candidates for the holy priesthood. Th ei r scholastic ability and social background are investigated, end they are required to obtain a certificate of good health from a physi- cian. If all this testimony is favorable, he is accepted as a student of St. Edward's Semi- nary. Prayers For Postulants POSTULANTS at Rosary Heights, Edmonds, Motherhouse for Dominican Sisters of the Holy Cross, examine pictures of Viettes, members of vocation clubs organized throughout the Dominican elementary and secondary schools in Washington, Montana and Cali- fornia. Although Viette members are not necessarily potential Sisters themselves, they do pray for vocations as well as for their own personal sanctification. The postulants above feel their own vocations are in part due to the prayers of the Viettes. (Photo by W. C. Heib, ]r.) First In History Enthrone Head of Deep South's Archdiocese ATLANTA, Ga., March 29 (NC)raThe spiritual leader of the Deep South's first archdiocese u r g e d the congregation at his enthronement to help him meet the Church's spgcial challenges here, including ra- cial justice. He is Archbishop Paul A. Hallinan. former Bishop of Charleston, S.C., who was en- throned today in the Cathedral of Christ the King by Arch- bishop Egidio Vagnozzi, Apos- tolic Delegate in the United States. By virtue of his office, the Ohio-born prelate also is the first head of the Church's new ecclesiastical province of Atlanta, created from din- ceses which were formerly a part of the Baltimore prov- ince. In his sermon at the tele- vised ceremony he spoke of the "special challenges" f a c i n g the Church in the South. These include, he said, "the dilemma confronted in every diocese in the province: how to care for the Catholic thousands in the cities, how to reach the vil- lages and counties where the Church is not known." Of race relations, the Arch- bishop said: "As St. Paul had his daily pressing anxiety in the care of the churches, so dues the Church today face the daily task of putting into practical effect her clear-cut teaching on racial justice. "Neither in the North nor in the South can she bear the ugly blemish of prejudice and fear. Small in numbers, but great in loyalty, our Catholic people are trying to rdlect the unity of Christ's Mystical Body as they move toward the reality of full racial jus- tice--wkh prudence, with cour- age and with determination." The new Archbishop, who be- came a member of the Hier- archy when named to the Charleston diocese in 1958, is a former Newman Club chap- lain in Clevelend and a U.S. Army chaplain in the Pacific during World War II. Seminary Is Renamed For Cardinal FARGO, N.D., (NC)--Bishop Leo F. Dworschak of Fargo has announced t h at the St. Plus X Minor Seminary to be opened in the former Sacred Heart Convent next fall has been renamed the Cardinal Muench Minor Seminary. Bishop Dworschak said the seminary is being dedicated to the memory of the late Alosius Cardinal Muench, a f o r m e r Bishop of Fargo. Bishop Dworschak said: "There is no monument to Cardinal Mueneh that could possibly be more appropriate than an institution dedicated to the we r k of educating priests--a work in which he was so interested." Douglas Hyde Will Speak At Newman Meet E L L E N SB U R G--Douglas Hyde, formerly a member of the Communist Party and now a convert to Catholicism, will be the guest speaker at the North- west Newman Club Province convention here March 30, 31 and April 1.

H6spital Board Elects Nun CHICAGO (NC)--Sister Grog. ory of the Congregation of the Resurrection is the first nun ever elected to the nine-mem- ber board of directors of the Chicago Hospital Council. She is administrator of Res- urrection Hospital hare. sistory which followed March 22. The custom of assigning titu- lar churches to Cardinals stems from the early history of the Diocese of Rome, when the Pope assigned his most trusted priests and deacons to govern main parish churches in the city. His Holiness Pope John XXIII assigned the ancient Church of St. Prisca as the titular church of Jose Cardinal da Costa Nunes, Vice-Camerlengo of the Holy Roman Church. Pope John als o assigned Cardinal da Costa Nunes to Tours U.S. ADMITTING THAT SE, RIOUS vocation problems are facing the Church, the German-born mother gen- eral of the worldwide Ursu- line order of nuns still be- lieves it it not necessary to become "morose" about it. Mother General M. Felicia Pastoors is now investigating the education Ursulines are giving their high school and academy students. Franco Bestows Biretta MADRID, March 28. (Radio, NC)  Generalis- simo Francisco France, the Spanish chief of state, presented the red biretta of a oardinat to Ildebrando Cardinal Antoniutti in the chapel of Oriente Palace her'e. The new Cardinal has been Apostolic Nuncio to Spain since 1953. He is one of the 10 per- sons elevated to the Sacred College by His Holiness Pope John XXIII March 19. The others, with the exception of Giovanni C a r d i n a I Panico, Apostolic Nuncio to Portugal, received their birettas from Pope John at the Vetican. In his address of response Cardinal Antoniutti referred to the privilege long enjoyed by the Spanish head of 'state of bestowing the biretta upon Apostolic Nuncios serving in Spain. He thanked Franeo for the brilliance of the ceremony that was arranged for him. Four Spanish cardinals led by the Primate of Spain, En- rique Cardinal Pie y Deniel, were in attendance, as were other Church dignitaries, high Spanish Government officials and members of the diplo- matic corps. Generalissimo Franc@ con- ferred upon the new Cardinal the Grand Collar of the Order of Isobela the Catholic at a ceremony following the biretta bestowal. mer Apostolic Nuncio to Bel- gium. This church rises on the site of an oratory which Helena, mother of Emperor Constantine, built in her palace about 325 A.D. to house relics she had discovered of the True Cross. The ancient Franciscan church of Santa Maria in Ara Cacti was assigned to Juan Cardinal Lan- dazuri, O.F.M., Archbishop of, Lima. The church houses Ram e's celebrated Bambino Gesu, a wooden statue of the Christ Child which is greatly venerated by the people of Rome. The Pope chose to elevate the old Byzantine Rite Church of St. Athanasius of the Greeks as the titular church of Syrian-born Grabriele Car- dinal Coussa. St. Athanasius' was the first church with twin towers in Rome. Raul Cardinal Silva Henri- quez, S.B.D., Archbishop of San- tiago, Chile, was given the Church of San Bernardo alle Terme as his titular. To Leo Cardinal Suenens, Archbishop of Malines-Brussels, the Pope gave the titular church of St. Peter in Chains. This church enshrines chains reputed to have bound St. Peter. Michael Cardinal Browne, O.P., Master General of the Dominican Order, received as his titular the Church of San Peele Apostolic alia Regola. This church on the Tiber is where St. Paul is supposed to have lived for two years after his arrival in Rome. The Church of St. Apollinaris, which was the titular church of the late Papal Secretary of State, Domenico Cardinal Tar- dini, was assigned by the Pope to Anselmo Cardinal Albareda, O.S.B., longtime Prefect of the Vatican Library. Giovanni Cardinal Panico, re- tiring Apostolic Nuncio to Por- tugal, and Ildebrando Cardinal Antoniutti, Apostolic Nuncio to Spain since 1953, received their red birettas from the heads of state of the nations to which they were accredited. They will receive their red hats, titular churches and assignments at ceremonies following their re- turn to Rome. President Of Portugal Gives Red Hat LISBON, March 28 (NC)--Ad- miral Americo Thomaz, Presi- dent of Portugal, conferred a cardinal's red biretta upon Archbishop Giovanni Panico in a ceremony at the Ajuda Pal- ace chapel here. The small chapel was filled by heads of the various diplo.- marie missions in Lisbon who have been the new Cardinal's colleagues since 1959. The custom of conferring the biretta in Portugal upon new Cardinals serving in this coun- try goes back to 1697, and was interrupted from 1910 to 1923 by the fall of the Portuguese monarchy.
