G e r a I d McKay, Catholic Activities chairman for Seat- tle Council, has extended an invitation to all those attend- ing the Mass to a dinner and program immediately follow- mg at the Knights of Colum- bus, 722 E.

The event will replace the Council's April 29 meeting, which has been canceled. The first day of May of each year has been designated by Congress and the President of the United States as "Law Day, U.S.A." It is set aside as a special day of celebration by the American people in apprecia- tion of their liberties and the reaffirmation of their loyalty to the U.S.; of their rededica- tion to the ideals of equality and justice under law in their relations with each other as well as with other nations; and for the cultivation of that re- spect for law that is so vital to the democratic way of life.

See Page 6 $4.00 per year--10c per copy Invokes Encyclical To Bring 'New Spirit' To Arms Meet GENEVA, Switzerland, April 24 (NC) i The peace encyclical of His Holiness Pope John XXIII has been brought before the world disarmament conference here in an effort to bring "a new spirit" into the deliberations. Alfonso Arinos, chief of the Brazilian delegation to the con- ference, told his confreres that if the negotiations were to be continued, they should be re- sumed in a different spirit. Then he cited the Pacem in Terris encyclical as an op- portune guide. CWV State Arinos said he spoke not merely as a Catholic in recom- mending the Pope's words, but as a "man of good will," in the way in which the Holy Father spoke, "without distinc- tion as to his bearer's religious or philosophic convictions." "The gentle old man in the Vatican," said Arinos, "at- tracts the confidence and the hope of the world because in simple words he puts simple truths before the consciences of the great. He says what everyone thinks, everyone ex- cept certain governments, cer- tain military circles, certain political assemblies or certain laboratories carefully preparing the destruction of the peace of the world." The Brazilian delegate, act- ing as chairman of the session at which he spoke said further: "With a tranquil voice, yet strong enough to reach hun- dreds of millions of homes, the beds of the sick and the cradles of children, the Holy Father describes the anxieties and hopes which, it seems, have not yet been able to eradicate mistrust, pride, ambition or fear. "The Holy Father speaks of the future to the living, and condemns those who by universal death' try to ex- tinguish forever the light of that future. "His thoughts are simple be- cause the immense truth which they proclaim is simple. He tells us that without disarm- ament there will be no peace, and that the idea of security founded in th e equilibrium of destructive forces permanently in progression is absurd. "He shows us that the ideal of peace in security can be attained only by the growth of confidence, by the cessation of nuclear tests for military pur- poses, and by real disarmament under effective control. "He reminds us that the basic ideological contradic- tion which divides the world todfiy cannot be overcome except by an international institution with greater pos- sibilities and functioning on the principles of righteous- ness and the rules of justice. 'Those thoughts are shared by the overwhelming majority of human beings who, terrified and powerless, are witnessing the wastage of economic and scientific resources in the folly of armament, while the greater part of humanity is vegetating in ignorance and poverty." Earlier, the delegate speak- ing before the deadlocked I% nation disarmament conference, said: "There is no sign that real negotiations will begin in the near future. We even ask our- selves whether it has been wise to resume talks so soon in such an atmosphere of im- potence and confusion. The truth is the positions of the two great power blocs have hard- ened. They are more deeply divided." Arinos then stated that Pope John's "long experience, cour- age, broadmindedness and sim- plicity enable the Holy Father to arbitrate our ideological and political divergencies.

That designation is used by the Saturday Evening Post April 20 in a subtitle appearing over an article written by Dr. Rock, gynecologist emeritus of Har- vard University. Objection to it is expressed by Msgr. John C. Knott, direc- tor of the Family Life Bureau, National Catholic Welfare Con- ference, in a letter sent to Matthew J. Culligan, president of the Curtis Publishing Com- pany, publisher of the Post. Msgr. Knott said Dr. Rock has "a reputation as gynecolo- gist" but as a Catholic "he has never personally accepted the official teaching of the Church that contraception has been, is now and always will be a seri- ous moral evil." Dr. Rock's article appears in the Post's "Speaking Out" column. Entitled "It is time to end the birth-control fight," it is subtitled: "A noted Roman Catholic gynecologist calls for a public policy on birth con- trol that meets the needs Of all religions." Msgr. Knott objefts strongly also to two assertions made by Dr. Rock in his article: (I) that some modern Catholic scholars "obviously realize that the re- ligious conflict today regarding birth control is really confined to methods and not objectives," and (2) "that the Church has not concluded its examination of the morality of the progesta- tional steroids (oral birth-con- trol pills) when used for fertil- ity control." "Talking Nonsense" Msgr. Knott says in his letter that when Dr. Rock "talks about the only difference be- tween Catholics and non-Cath- olics in the area of birth con- trol as being one of methods, he philosophies of life. Catholics: believe marriage is made for begetting children and they are not alone in this belief. "is Misleading..." Msgr. Knott states that Dr/ Rock "is misleading, to make an understatement, when he says that the Church is still open on the question of the oral birth-control pill." "Pope Plus XII and all theo- logians," he adds, "are unani- mous in condemning it as a con- traceptive measure." is talking nonsense." Dr. Rock; Msgr.

LOUIS, April 24 'Progress and prospects' are indeed 'restoration and renew- al'," said the Cardinal at the opening session. Similarly, Archbishop J o h n Cody, Apostolic Administrator of New Orleans who was re- elected to a second term as NCEA president general, took up the theme in his homily at the convention's opening Mass, celebrated by Cardinal Ritter. "The Fathers of the coun- cil converged on Rome from nearly all countries of the world . . . You have come to the 'Rome of the West' from all corners of the country... You have come here to share and to learn," he said. The ecumenical council's spir- it of reaching out toward sep- arated Christians found expres- sion early in the convention when Msgr.

"Aggiornamento" was the understood sixth word in the National Catholic Educational Association's convention theme: "Catholic Education . . . Prog- ress and Prospects." Joseph Cardinal Ritter, Arch- bishop of St. Louis, a past NCEA president general and host to the convention, was first to note the relationship between the annual assembly of Catholic educators and the Second Vati- can Council.
