Caholic Day Se00: F,id00y ;00pr, ,9600 PROGRESS--3 Bishop.Gill to .Attend Official 00ern Hospitals Slate Meet Happy Easter[ Dearly Beloved in Christ: Administrators and ex- lenhorg will give the invocation, guest speaker at the luncheon vention o,f Western Hospitals Chaplains' Session May the Risen Saviour bring to you and your loved ones on Eastern Morn peace, happiness and true spiritual contentment. "This is the day that the Lord hath made; let us be glad and rejoice therein." Thus does the gradual of the Easter Mass give the key to this day on which we celebrate the Feast of our Divine Saviour's Res- urrection. Easter is indeed a day for joy, inspired by faith triumphant for our Redeemer overcame sin and death by His Passion, Death and Resurrection and thus reopened for fallen man the gates of heaven. I hope that you have all spent some hours of quiet contemplation on these great mysteries during this past week. You may have well heard in your mind the special appeal that our Saviour makes to us during these sorrowful days. His revelation is a lamp to our feet and a light to our path; His mercy, a refuge in our sinfulness; His promise and resur- rection a hope of better things. However, the immediate and ever-present ap- peals of sense win us as they win unreasoning chil- dren. Our vision of faith sees but dimly, if at all, the eternal truths that lie beyond. Nor can we see them unless we look and look most intently. Unless we do that, they will not become real to us. They will have little or no influence upon our conduct. And so, neither we nor the people we contact in the relationships of life, will be spiritualized by the col- orless quality of our Christian profession. And, yet, Our Lord's cause in the world depends upon us. He will always have His enemies. Unless He can depend upon us, His friends, His interests here will surely fail. We are His friends; and personal holiness should be our constant equipment in His service. Through such ministrations alone is the world bet- tered and its men and women saved. "What could I have done more for Thee that I have not done?" The rest waits upon us to do. We cannot, we must not, we shall not fail Him. Easter is a day of dedication as well as a day of joy. He entrusted His message to those who loved Him. He made them the witnesses of His Resurrection to the world. He sent them forth to teach all nations, to preach fo all men everywhere in the name of Christ, crucified and risen from the dead. They were to be Christians in action and in their hands was to rest the task of changing the world. Ecumenical Council or no Ecumenical Council, the task Our Lord gave to those who follow Him is the same today as it was in the beginning of the Christian Era. Everyone who claims to love Him and to try to follow Him is by this very fact His witness to the world. The empty tomb of the Risen Christ is a constant reminder of our vocation and our destiny. He has gone but His work continues in. us. His cause is in our hands, as I have said. It falls or it stands, it succeeds or it fails, depending upon our efforts. Our destiny, then, today and every day is to be that image of Christ to the world about us. St. Paul expresses this thought beautifully when he tells his converts that they must be imitators of him even as he is of Christ. Let that be our unending task. , A happy and blessed Easter to all of you. Devotedly yours in Christ, / Archbishop of Seattle f April 16, 1965 Holy Sdturday Abstinence By virtue of special faculties, the Most Reverend Archbishop dispenses the faithful of the Archdiocese from the observance of abstinence on Holy Saturday, April 17. It is still a day of fast. Thus, for those obliged to fast (ages 21-59), meat is permitted on|y at the principal meal. Easter Collection For Ecclesiastical Students The annual collection for the education of our young men for the Holy Priesthood is to be taken up at all the Masses on Easter Sunday in all parish and mission churches and in the chapels of institutions. The total proceeds of the Easter collection are to be remitted to The Chancery as soon as possible. Holy Saturday The Solemn Paschal Vigil will be Celebrated at a fitting and convenient hour to allow the Solemn Mass to begin at midnight. The obligation of hearing Mass on Sunday is ful- filled by those who attend this Midnight Mass. The faithful who desire to receive Holy Com- munion at this Midnight Mass must fast for one hour from all food and drink. The taking of water does not break the Eucharistic fast. For the clergy and faith- ful, the hour is reckoned from the actual time of receiving Holy Communion. Those who receive Holy Communion at the Mid- night Mass may receive Holy Communion again at another Mass later in the day. Holy Communion can be gven only during or immediately following the Solemn Mass at midnight. The sole exception is made for Holy Viaticum for the sick in danger of death. All priests of the Archdiocese who celebrate the Solemn Mass of the Easter Vgil at midnight may binate and even trinate on Easter Sunday.

Spearheading Cancer Crusade Mr. and Mrs. William Riley of Bellevue are per- sonally committed to the American Cancer Society's an- nual April Crusade Tuesday April 20 in Seattle and through- out King County. Nine years ago, William Riley's brother died from Hodg- kin's disease, a form of cancer. He was 27 years old and the godfather of one of the Riley children. Riley is serving his second year as president of the King County Unit of the Society and before that he held the post of treasurer for four years. Mrs. Riley is a Bellevue area chair- man for Lake Hills and Wood- ridge and she is a former sword bearer. Next Tuesday under the di- rection of Riley, hundreds of o t h e r dedicated volunteers whose own lives or those of relatives have been touched by the disease, will visit every home in Seattle and King County. These sword bearers will distribtte literature that could save your life and they will ask for a contribution to further the three-pronged goals of the Society: education, re- search and service to cancer patients. The King County Unit cen- ducts a year-round program geared to educate people in in- dustry, organizations a n d schools. "In one large Seattle firm," Riley said. "We showed the film and the audience later asked the speaker, a physician, questions." A few months later, a woman who had been in the audience wrote to the King County Unit saying that she had decided to have a check-up by her physician after hearing the ACS lecture. "Her physician discovered a malignant tumor," Riley said. Early detection and prompt treatment may well save her life." Annual check- ups by a physician are the paramount point stressed in all American Cancer Society literature. The King County Unit's Medi- cal_ Speakers Bureau includes 20 Seattle physicians who talk to about 60 groups a year. They are interested and willing to talk to any group, Riley said. A team of four physicians ad- dress editors and assistant edi- tors at meetings throughout the MR. AND MRS. WILLIAM RILEY year, mainly on the effects of smoking. These editors of school newspapers are also given ad- ditional educational material so that they can write their own articles. Information is also given in classroom and library kits for high school students' use as well as in workshops for teachers, "More people are alive today, cured of cancer than prior to the mass educational program," Riley reported. He said these statistics are based on a ratio of people to people so the re- sults are not due to population growth. "Seattle is known nationally for the cancer research being conducted at Seattle University, the University of Washington and Children's Orthopedic Hos- pital," Riley said. The Society has contributed almost 1.75 mil- lion dollars to these Seattle research centers. The King County Unit maim rains an information center to tell cancer patients what help they may receive from the So- ciety or other organizations. Patients may also receive auto transportation to treatment cen- ters as well as the use of items from the Loan Closet and band- ages and dressings. In addition, the Unit has an The Most Reverend Thomas E. Gill, Auxiliary Bishop, will be guest of the 35th Annual Ccnvention of Western Hospi- tals at the Catholic Chaplains Section luncheon Tuesday, April 27 at the Olympic Hotel. Fifty Catholic chaplains am expected to attend the Conven- tion to be held April 25-29 in Seattle. Father John A. Rice, chap- lain of Fircrest School and Firland Sanatorium, Seattle, will be chairman of the Chap- lains Section and will preside at the Chaplains S e e t i o n meetings Tuesday, April 27, and Wednesday, April 28, in the Colonial Room of the Olympie Hotel.

Father Merwyn Nuxell, pas- tor of Sacred Heart Church, Emmett, Idaho, will be heard during the morning session. Moderator of the afternoon ........................... session will be Father Michael Schmitt, chaplain of the North- ern State Hospital, Sedro Wool- ley. "The H i d d e n Candle," will be the address by Father American Cancer Society pool at the King County Blood Bank and contributes financi- ally to the Seattle- King County Visiting Nurse Service, Riley said. "Next Tiaesday," Riley said, "we ask everyone to fight can- cer with a cheek and a check- up. Many people die from can- cer today because they do not have the annual health check- up which can usually reveal the disease when it is early and most curable. While research- ers are trying to find a per- manent answer we can protect ourselves and our families in this way."

Steve Bramwell, Uni- versity of Washington halfback moderated the discusien. Posters satirizing false ad- vertisments on smoking were a feature of the conference. "Relax, it's Springtime," one poster read. Depicted was a dead man in a coffin. Another poster urged readers to "Join the Unswitchables." Featured was a hill heavy with tomb- stones. On a third poster tomb- stones marked the final resting places of "Luck'y Strike" and "Chester Field." A display urged readers to "Come to Marlboro Comtry. "The picture showed a train going under a hill full of crosses made of crossed cigarettes. "Our main objective in this campaign is to prevent people from being misled by false ad- vertisement concerning smok- ing," said Larry Thatcher, Stu- dent Director of the campaign, and graduate of Star of Sea Grade School. The Coference was span- sored for students of grades 5 through 1 and their parents. A radio panel on health haz- ards of smoking preceded the committee discussion. Radio panelists were Drs. James Car- ter, George F. Asbury and S. Manning Larson; and students including Barbara Fowler, Mike Matlock, Pare Muller, Larry Thatcher and John Sitten. Listening in the in-person audience in the Science Addi- tion of the school were more than 100 parsons, including stu- dents from the city's high schools and junior highs as well as from Seventh-Day Ad- ventist and Star of Sea School, and city and navy officials. The discussion was broadcast to other classrooms and to homes on radio sthtion KBRO. Some of the questions and an- swers were: Q: Is there one kind of cig- aret more damaging than an- other? A: All cigarets are harmful and the more you smoke the more harmful they are. Q: Do cigarets really cause lung cancer? Dr. Asbury: "There cannot any longer boa question of this fact. The tabulations are in . . . Seventy-five per cent or more of lung cancers are related to smoking." Q: What are the proven haz- ards of smoking?

They did so in a statment signed by John Cardinal Heenan of Westminster; Archbisop Mi- chad Ramsey of Canterbury, the Anglican Primate; Dr. Dun- can Fraser, moderator of the General Assembly of the (Presbyterian) Church of Scot- land; and Dr. Eric Baker, moderator of the Free Church Federal Council. The statement, said: "With thanksgiving to At. mighty God for what has been achieved since the Charter of the United Nations was signed June 26, 194S, we call on Christian people to answer this great challenge by their service, their giving, their prayers, on behalf of all God's people for whom Christ died." The statement is contained in a pamphlet urging everyone to join the United Nations Asso- ciation and to work Articularly for peace and security, human rights and racial equality and the conquest of poverty, hanger and disease.

Battle Bubbles Over Ho Spirng SALTO, Uruguay (NC)--lt ap- pears that a tug-of-war between the dioceee of Salto and the city's municipal government re- garding a thermal spring found on Church property is nearing an end. The two first got into hot .water back in 1962 when the spring was discovered on land used for the diocesan seminary. Public officials, with dreams of developing a watering place, wanted to expropriate the prop- erty and put up hotels and baths. Bishop Alfredo Viola of SeiZe said he was willing to donate the land as a public park, so long as it would be open to all persons and if the seminary would not be dis- turbed. The dispute had been boiling for nearly three years when it was agreed a joint committee should study both proposals and find an acceptable solu- tion.
