Friday, April I0, 1964 THE PROGRESS-.-3 Official Archdiocesan :, Development Fund Campaign The second annual Archdiocesan Development Fund Campaign will be inaugurated Sunday, May 3. The first Sunday of May wi.ll be "Pledge Sunday" on which the parishioners of all parishes and missions will be asked to sign a pledge, as they did so gener- a ously last year, to contribute to the Archdiocesan De- velopment Fund in accordance with their means. On the intervening Sundays, as well as in the Catholic Northwest Progress, a complete report will be made to you on the outcome of the first Arch- diocesan Fund campaign: the amount received, the amount disbursed, the present status of the ADF, the plans for the immediate future, the long-range pro- gram for the development of the educational; chari- table and religious facilitLes of the Archdiocese. Due to the extraordinary number of appeals made upon your generosity during these past few months and in the best interests of peace and true Christian concord, the inauguration of the campaign for this year was put off until the month of May. N.B. The foregoing announcement should be made at all the Masses in all parish and mission churches on Sunday, April 12. World Day of Prayer For Vocations His Holiness, Pope Paul VI, recently instituted a World Day of Prayer for Vocations in view of the great demand for more Priests, Brothers and Sisters to carry on the evangelical work of the Church in every land. The second Sunday after Easter, April 12, the Feast of the Good Shepherd, was determLned upon as the World Day of Prayer for Vocations when the faithful throughout the world would be requested to offer prayers for an increase of vocations in the Church. Accordingly, after all the Masses in parish and mission churches as well as in the chapels of all insti- tutions, the following prayer will be recited for the Holy Father's Intentions. Prayer For Vocations O God, Who wills not the death of a sinner but rather that he be converted and live, grant, we be- seech Thee, through the intercession of the Blessed Mary, ever Virgin, and all the saints, an increase of laborers for Thy Church, fellow laborers with Christ, to spend and consume themselves for souls through the same Jesus Christ, Thy Son, Who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy Spirit, world without end, Amen.

Requiem Mass For Mother Scholastica A requiem high Mass was sung Thursday in St. Cabrini Hospital chapel for Mother Scholastica, M.S.C., who died Tuesday after a long illness. Mother Scholastiea, 70, hos- pital medical records libra- rian and a registered phar- macist, was among those in the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart who person- ally knew and worked with St. Frances Xavier Cabrini, Foundress of the religious community• The former Mary Miglionica, Mother Scholastica entered the • religious life July 31, 1910, in New York City and later taught at St. Cabrini High School there. She came to St. Cabrini Hos- pital in Seattle in 1931. Four years ago she celebrated her olden jubilee. Mother Scholastica had no known immediate survivors. Celebrant of the requiem Mass was Rev. Stephen Sze- man, hospital chaplain. Burial followed in Calvary Cemetery under the direction of Manning and Sons Funeral Home. Ousted Nuns To Nurse In India TUTICORIN, India (NC)--The Sisters of St. Anne are build- ing a 350-bed hospital here and expect membersof their order who are being expelled from Lay Theology Teachers Sought, Survey Shows NEW YORK (NC)--Many U.S. Catholic colleges either already employ laymen as fulltime teachers of theology or would be willing to do so, a survey in- dicates. "The trend is clear: in points to the laity," accord- ing to Rev. Webster T. Pat- terson, S.J., of Seattle (Wash.) University• Father Patterson conducted a survey of opportunities for lay- men as theology teachers among all U.S. Catholic uni- versities, colleges and junior colleges. He reports his find- ings in an article in America magazine. @ Of 233 questionnaires sent, he says, 177 were returned. • In reply to the schools' policies about hiring laymen and women with doctorates in theology, the results for men were 127 'yes and 16 no, and for women 97 yes and 44 no. • As for hiring candidates with an M.A. in theology, the replies for men were 105 yes 692 Attend Nocturnal Vigil Nocturnal vigils on the eve of the first Saturday of April attracted a total of 692 persons in St. James Cathedral, Seattle, and St. Patrick Church, Ta- coma. The Cathedral had an atten- dance of 334 and there were 358 at St. Patrick's. The devotions are held on the eve of the first Saturday of each month in answer to requests of Our Lady of Fatima for prayer- ful observance of first Satur- days. I Grants Will [ Provide Teachers' Training Course WASHINGTON, D.C.- Sena- tor Henry M. Jackson said to- day St. Martin's College of Olympia and Holy Names Col- lege of Spokane will provide training during the 1964-65 school year to secondary school teachers under National Science Foundation grants. Teachers of science and mathematics in grades 7-12 will attend the schools. Holy Names College has grants totaling $12,790 for its Department of Science under Sister M. Eu- gene Cautereaux and St. Mar- tin College has $14,450 in grants for its Department of Mathe- matics under Rev. John Ray- mond, O.S.B. Biology, earth science and mathematics will be taught at Holy Names and chemistry and mathematics at St. Martin's. Participants will be selected by the staff of the colleges and not by the National Science Foundation, Jackson said. In- quiries and request for appli- cation for participation should be addressed to the directors of the institutes named. college theology the future and 39 no, and for women 72 yes and 67 no. • Of the schools which said they would hire a woman the- ology teacher with an M.A., six were all-male institutions and 14 were coeducational. Father Patterson notes that "many" Catholic schools al- ready have laymen in their theology departments a n d "others plan to hire them in the future." "Among these." he says, "38 Catholic colleges wish to hire a layman or laywoman in the theology department immedi- ately." "Perhaps the most frequent- ly expressed" reason for want- ing to hire lay teachers of the- elegy, Father Patterson says. is " 'the unique contribution the layman can make simply by the fact that he is a lay- man vitally interested in re- ligion'." May Build Basilica At Knack Shrine DUBLIN (NC) -- Plans to erect a $500,009 basilica at the shrine of Our Lady of Knock in County Mayo were disclosed here.

In Japan he faced an un- precedented task, bristling with uncertainties, though his diffi- culties were to be lessened by the discipline and industry of the Japanese. He felt the need of divine assistance and, later,• felt that he had received it. "I could not have done it alone," he said to me about 1949, in a tone of utter sin- cerity. He never had any illusions about Communism, and for that the world owes him special thanks. It is generally believed that he more than anyone else prevented Soviet Russia from gefting an occupation zone in northern Japan. In 1945-46 he was under pres- sure from Washington and'the Far Eastern Commission of Al- lied powers'to give Japan's leftists and Communists "dem- ocratic" freedom of action. I saw them gleefully exploiting this freedom to impede eco- nomic recovery and create dis- order in the war-weakened na- tion. MaeArthur stood it only so long. Early in 1947 he in- tervened to forbid a proposed general strike. Later he out- lawed the Communist party. During the Korean war, when Seoul had been recaptured af- ter the Inch0n landing of Sep- tember, 1950, MacArthur spoke there in a short ceremony re- instating the Republic of Ko- rea government. He paid a trib- ute to the soldiers and marines who had given their lives in the fighting and then invited all present to join him in publicly reciting the Lord's Prayer. The speech and the prayer broadcast from the shattered capitol building, expressed the essence of the struggle to defend Korea against aggres- sive atheistic Communism. And they expressed the spirit • of MaeArthur. did not represent his attitude. I answered that the two were officials employed by a section of headquarters, that the press, including Stars and Stripes, had treated it accordingly. He then handed me a memo- randum in which he specifical- ly disavowed the statements made by the two officials. He declared further that the ques- tion of Japan's population growth was, and would be, out- side the scope of his head- quarters. This declaration was published in the Catholic press. During our discussion that day I told the General that I was in Shanghai in March when the first statement urg- ing birth control was pub- lished. "I said to myself: 'This is the first mistake the occupation has made,' " I told him. He took his pipe from his mouth. "You are generous," he said quickly. "We have made many." Some six months later, the Natural Resources section sud- denly published a two-volume work in which the author ad- vocated "population control." It was interpreted as another American attempt at propagan- da for artificial birth control. General MacArthur knew noth- ing of this work, published in the name of his headquarters, until he saw it on his desk. True to his assurance of the previous June, he had all the books withdrawn and repri- manded those responsible. Early in 1950 he refused a visa for Mrs. Margaret San- ger to visit Japan in behalf of her movement. He assured a Catholic prelate that he did not believe in a program of artificial birth control in Japan. In 1947 Father, now Msgr., Richard Scully, from Hartford, Conn., then an Army chaplain in Japan, saw an opening for a Japanese edition 'of the Catho- lic Digest. The editors in St. Paul, Minn., were eager to co- operate. In Japan, however, still under the occupation, a U.S. military directive forbade publication of Japanese editions of all save a very few Ameri- can magazines. TWENTY-NINE freshmen student nurses at St. Cabrini Hospital Sunday received their caps to mark the completion of two quarters of study at Seattle University and the hos- pital's School of Nursing.

His head was thrust slightly for- ward; hisface always seemed composed and thoughtful. A lit- tle group of Japanese on the sidewalk Watched him respect- fully as, unarmed and without swagger, he walked to his wait- ing car. This was Douglas MacArthur, the man who won the heart of defeated Japan after he and his comrades had won the war. And nbw America's dramatic hero of three wars is dead. A week-long funeral homage to the memory of the late Gen- eral el the Army Douglas Mac- Arthur, 84, will end with burial services in Norfolk, Va. Satur- day. MacArthur's body was taken from Washington, D.C., where he died Sunday morning, to New York. From there, the body was returned to the na- tion's capital to lie in state un- til its i burial in Norfolk, the g6neral's home by choice. His wife, Jean,; and son, Arthur, survive: 'Among the factors that eon- tribed; [o :the-five-star gener- al's 'influence in Japan and elsewhere in the Far East was this:; he believed reverently in God and vas never afraid to show t. Ffe beheved, moreover, that the first need of modern man is to acknowledge God's authority, "The problem is basically theological," he declared in his brief solemn speech on the U.S.S. Missouri, after the signing of the Japanese sur- render, Sept. 2, 1945. "There must be a reerudence of the spiritual if we are to save the material." He knew Catholicism prob- ably from the externals of Catholic life and from Catho- lic personalities rather than in depth of doctrine. He was re- garded as an Episcopalian, though in Japan at least the Protestant Episcopal church did not seem to hold great attrac- tion for him. Few were the world's leaders whe said anything so sound in trol. The section of MacArthur's headquarters dealing with Japa- nese legislation held that this was a purely Japanese concern, in which it would not interfere. Early in the occupation the General had forbidden his offi- cers to advocate birth control measures. Later, it became clear that some high- ranking men in the Public Health and Welfare and the Natural Re- sources sections of headquar- ters had been encouraging Japanese to prepare a national birth control program. In March, 1949, an American civil- ian "population expert" em- ployed by Natural Resources, gave an interview urging such a program. In May another held a press conference to ar- gue for the same idea. This GENERAL MaeARTHUR 'Fades Away' at 84 was reported in the Catholic press as a new effort made "under the auspices of Gen- eral MacArthur's headquarters" to promote birth control in Japan. A few weeks later, the General sent for me. He had a clipping of my story and the parent edition of the Catho- lic Digest. That evening his aide gave me his reply. "The General says if there's a directive pre- venting you from publishing that magazine in Japanese, the directive's to be changed!" It was. And Gen. MacArthur contributed a special message for the first issue of the Japa- nese Catholic Digest, issued April, 1948. Like many other high rank- ing American military men, he seemed to have great re- spect for the Catholic religion and to appreciate what it has done for mankind. "The Cath- olic religion is the thing for Japan," he said a couple of times to visitors• "I've seen what it has done for the Philippines." He was reportedly an Epis- copalian, but I never knew him to attend regular Episcopalian services in Japan. His religious ideas had much that was Catho- lic in them and nothing, as far as I saw, that was anti-Catho- lic. His first marriage entered years ago would have been in- valid, according to Catholic principles; his second was valid. When he and Mrs. MacAr- thur made their "sentimental journey" to revisit the Philip- pines in July, 1961, the presi- dential press office in Manila told me that the number of correspondents accompanying them on the special train to Lingayen would be limited. Probably I would not be includ- ed. I sent a note to Gen. Mac- Arthur. That evening I was told by the press office: "The General wants you on the train, Father, and also on the ship for Leyte and Cebu." When he and Mrs. MacAr- thur left the Manila Airport about a week later, thousands, including the President of the Philippines, saw them off. He took the time and trouble to shake many hands before- mounting to wave farewell. "Goodbye, Father," he said. "God bless you, General," I answered. It was not hard to mean it.

By ALICE HENNING Three Catholics will be among those playing a key role to the success of the American Cancer Society's annual April Crusade, sched- uled to start April 21 through- out King County. They are William P. Riley, Mrs. John J. Clarke Jr. and Mrs. Charles Hancock Jr. Riley, assistant vice presi- dent of Seattle Trust and Sav- ings Bank and a member of St. Louise Parish, Bellevue, is president of the King County Unit of the American Cancer Society. As president, he heads the annual educational and fund-raising campaign involv- ing 16,000 volunteer "sword bearers" who will bring every resident of King County edu- cational materials which could save their lives• "The purpose of the cru- sade is to inform every per- son what he can do to protect himself and his family from cancer," Riley said. "O u r volunteers will urge every- one to visit his doctor for an annual cheek-up." Some 90,000 persons may die of cancer this year simply be- cause they did not get to their doctors in time for early diag- nosis and prompt treatment, he pointed out. "The second goal of the crusade," Riley said, "will be to raise funds for the So- ciety's three-point program of education, service and re- search." Mrs. Clarke, also a member of St. Louise Parish, directs 2,000 volunteers from Botheil through Renton.
