ACCW's Unique Project F the 17 national com- mittees through which the National Council of Cath- olic Women works, the Seattle Archdiocese chapter has a unique committee, Seminar- ian Aid, given the local chap- ter by Bishop Gerald Shaugh- nessy 14 years ago. The com- mittee attempts to raise the $10,000 needed for a yearly burse. The NCCW is a federation of 12,500 U.S. Catholic wo- men's organizations with a total membership of nine million women. In the Seattle Archdiocese the Archdiocesan Council of Catholic Women, or ACYTW, numbers its members at some 10,000 or 151 different clubs. The Seminarian Aid com- mittee is one in which the ACCW takes special pride. With $130,000 already on rec- ord the women hope to swell the amount once more when on April 29 they present the M o s t Reverend Thomas A. Connolly, Archbishop of Se- attle, with their 14th burse check. Some years it isn't possible to accumulate the $10,000; other years the women go over their total. In the course of 13 years the amount has evened out and by the end of this month, the women of the ACCW hope to have another complete burse. The Council in theory is comprised of every. Catholic woman in the Archdiocese. The pastor of each parish, paying dues to the NCCW, automatically enrolls the wo- men of his parish in the local chapter. In practice, every Catholic women's club (there are 151 in the Archdiosese) is repre- sented in the ACCW, all con- tributing to the burse fund. Two groups, the Catholic Daughters of America and the Young Ladies Institute, accumulate their own burses BY FRANCES FARRELL VITULLI as well as contributing to the Council's fund. According to Mrs. William J. Paul of Marysville, presi- dent of the Seattle ACCW, "our goal is a dollar from the 10,000 Ctholic women we count in our membership." Burse monies are used to assist the seminarians who need financial aid in complet- ing their studies at St. Thomas the Apostle Major Seminary in Kenmore. Besides raising money for their burse, the women of the ACCW strive to fulfill the goals of the national organi- zation to "stimulate the study af Christian principles and to encourage action in accord vcith these principles." Adopting 11 of the 17 na- development of our Catholic women into real leaders . . . women who are not afraid to speak in front of a group or lead a discussion." In the field of library and literature, the women of that committee have succeeded in aiding in the arrest by Fed- eral authorities of one pub- lish'er of obscene literature by their constant vigilance of newstands of the Archdiocese. To make the work of the ACCW easier, the territory has been divided into five deaneries : S o u t h Central, Northern, N o r t h Central, Western and Southern. Each deanery meets three times a year and the Archdiocesan board meets four times a year. The latter is comprised MAKING PREPARATIONS for the 38th annual Archdiocesan Council of Catholic Women Convention April 29-30 are (left to right) Mrs. Ray J. Moffat, general chairman; Rev. Joseph H.

It is the hope of Mrs. Paul that "a secondary effect of these committees will be the of representatives of the deaneries. As president, Mrs. Paul's duties include attending all meetings which meaas trips from the Canadian to the Ore- gon border as well as consoli- dating the functions of all deaneries and reporting on them to members of the board.
