The high court was unani,mous in rejecting the argument that states may not bar discrimination in hiring by interstate carriers because this area of law comes under Federal jurisdiction. The court thus ruled April 22 in favor of Mar- lon D. Green, a Negro pilot who had applied for a job with the Continental Air Lines, and the Colo- rado Anti.Discrimination Commission which had ordered Continental to enroll Green in its training program. , The opinion was written by Justice Hugo L.

WASHINGTON, April T Jt OO"i 24 (NC)  Senate hear- ! ings on aid to education i will begin April 29, Sen. Wayne Morse of Oregon has an- nounced. Morse, chairman of the edu- cation subcommittee of the Senate Labor and Public Wel- t00uy fare Committee, told the Sen- ate that the subcommittee will hear testimony from public wit- nesses on each section of the administration's bill separately. The subcommittee will also hear testimony on a variety, of other aid to education meas- ures sponsored by various sen- ators, he said. Witnesses who wish to pres- ent views on more than one section of the administration bill may appear more than once or may file supplemen- tary w r i t t e n statements, Morse said. SUNNY JIM BOSTON, April 23 (NC)  Richard Cardinal Cushing has stated that opinions on the morality of artificial birth control as expressed in gynecologist John Rock's new book "lack any official approval as authentic Catholic teaching." The Archbishop of Boston says that in the book, enfiled "The Time Has Come," "there is much that is good," but "it also contains several statements which are theologically incorrect and certainly misleading." The Cardinal's comment is made in an article written under his byline in the current April 20 edition of the Pilot, Boston archdiocesan newspaper. Dr. Rock, a resident of Brookline, Mass., is clinical professor emeritus of gynecology at Harvard Medical School. He helped develop the first oral contraceptive pill. In his article, Cardinal Cushing states: "Since Dr. Rock writes explicitly as a Catholic and since I am his Bishop, I have been asked from several sources to make some observations on his latest publication." The Cardinal notes first that Dr. Rock's book lacks an "im- primatur . . . an official statement by the local Bishop that the contents are free from doctrinal and/or moral error." "Therefore," he says, "the opinions on the morality of arti- ficial birth control as presented in the text lack any official ap- proval as authentic Catholic teaching." Cardinal Cushing states that Dr. Rock presents "a detailed and graphic account of the history of the birth control contro- versy in the United States, and many times he rightly criti- cizes the excesses to which some Catholics have gone in this matter." But "when he speaks on the formation of the Catholic con- science," the Cardinal continues, "he fails to take into considera- tion the true complexity of this problem and so commits in the field of theology the same mistake he urges against the theo- logians in the field of reproductive physiology." "The entire chapter on the teaching of the natural law in matters which pertain to the morality of artificial contraception is oversimplified," the Cardinal declares. "In his defense of the 'natural' and, to his mind, 'lawful', use of the progestational steroids (birth-control pills) as con- traceptive devices, Dr. Rock does not meet the incisive argu- ments against his position which have been continually voiced by Catholic moral theologians." Cardinal Cushing says that in his book "Dr. Rock is emphatic in his claim to be a good and devoted Catholic." "It must be said, however," the Cardinal declares, "that some of the positions which he defends therein are not in agreement with Catholic teaching." Not 'Catholic Contraceptive': Says Sex Education Is Answer To Problem NEW YORK, April 24 (NC)-- A Catholic family life leader has challenged the idea that a "Catholic contraceptive" is go- ing to solve the problem of too- large families. Msgr. John C. Knott, director of the Family Life Bureau, Na- tional Catholic Welfare Confer- ence, said it is "utter nonsense" to envisage the setting up of Catholic affiliates to the Planned Parenthood Federation of Amer- ica." Nor, he said in a keynote ad- dress to a New York archdio- cesan Family Life Institute April 21, will a "refinement of the rhythm system" of family limitation be "the whole an- swer" to the problem. What is needed, Msgr. Knott said, is a positive education in the real meaning of sexuality." "Our sexual education has been most inadequate," he said. Our married people know little or nothing about marital chastity. Our engaged couples are not sufficiently aware of the total meaning of sexual love. Our young people have fouled-up concepts of manliness and womanliness." The Monsignor charged that 'the Puritanism of our national culture and the Jansenism of our spiritual heritage have combined in the American Cath- olic to create a curtain of silence that is only now being pierced." He saw signs of hope, how- ever, saying: "If it now ap- pears that more parents and educators in the Church are willing to speak out in favor of a more adequate sexual education for children and young adults, this is certainly a trend in the right direction. The climate has changed and there is more awareness of the great need of all people, young and old, in the single, married and religious vocations, to un. derstand themselves better and appreciate more deeply the true meaning of their sexu- ality." K of C Among Ecumenical Pioneers Ad Program Dispels Prejudices By Fred Cordova The spirit of ecumen- ism under Catholic aus- pices is not new in the State of Washington. Dialogue between Catholic and non-Catholic on religious issues and on faith and morals has been presented forthright- ly whenever and wherever men of sincerity met to seek the truth. : : . Aieader in the movement to dispel misunderstanding and prejudice of things Catholic in the Pacific Northwest is the Knights of Colfimbus Religious Information Bureau, an inspir- ing program undertaken by the KofC's State Council 17 years ago. Since March 17, 1946, on St. Patrick's Feastday, the Knights have regularly in- serted advertisements, ex- plaining the tenets of the Faith, in 16 daily newspapers throughout the state. Currently they appear in the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, Aber- deen World, Bellingham Herald, Bremerton Sun, Centralia Daily Chronicle, Everett Herald (since October), L o n g v i e w Daily News, Port Angeles Eve- ning News, Spokesman Review, Tacoma News Tribune, Tri- City Herald, Vancouver Co- lumbian, Walla Walla Union- Bulletin, Wenatchee Daily World and the Yakima Repub- lic, all with a combined cir- culatiQn of 800,000. In 17 years, here are some of the outstanding results: Approximately 25,000 persons, after reading the advertise- ments, have inquired about the Faith. Some 15,000 of that have asked for further instructions. This comes to a yearly aver- age of 1,500 inquiries and 500 requests for further instruc- tions. There is never any obliga- tion on the inquirer's part. Neither are there any door-' bell ringing and proselytizing. In dollars and cents, the Knights have expended in 17 THE working group of the Knights of Columbus Religious Information Bureau is its Seattle Replies Committee, headed by James A. Rider.

'Conversion is not the first or the primary purpose of the program," said Rev. William Treaty, moderator of the bu- reau's Seattle Replies Com- mittee. The chaplain of Seattle Coun- cil, Assistant Chancellor of the Archdiocese and director of the Catholic Information Center added: "The program is rather the presentation of the true Image of the Church to dispel misunderstanding and prej- udice." Gerard S. (Bee) Welch of Seattle became the bureau's state chairman after his ten- ure as state deputy in 1953. One of the program's pioneers, he was preceded in the state chairmanship by the late Stephen A. Cain, Charles Toyn- bee and Jack J. Reidinger, both of Tacoma, and Bernard (Ben) J. Lenoue of Seattle.

Philomathea, the Bellarmine Mothers Club, is sponsoring it and handling the reception will be Mesdames Dale Gaeth, Ralph Riden, John Dempsey, Bernard Grail, Joseph Werner, Frank Ruffo and Hugh A. Lar- kin. Father Logan is the son of Mrs. Catherine Logan and the late Frank Logan. He was reared in Seattle, attended Ca- thedral and Immaculate Grade Schools and was graduated from Seattle College -- then a high school. That same year he en- tered the Society of Jesus and was ordained in the Santa Clara Mission chapel by Archbishop John J. Mitty of San Francisco in 1938. Two other sons in the Logan family are priests. They are Rev. Robert E. Logan who is chaplain at St. Joseph Hospital, Vancouv- er, and Rev. Frank Logan, S,J., on the staff at Seattle University, b u t presently spending a year teaching in France on an exchange pro- gram.

Up-To-Date Spirit Noted At NCEA Meeting (Continued from Page I) place of U. S. Catholie eduea. tion, asked Catholic sehools to resist the temptation to abandon these areas today for the flourishing and more se- cure suburbs. , "You will be leaving behind millions of Catholics who are in great need of your services," said Henning who noted the tragic social life, widespread unemployment and lack of ed- ucation of u r b a n minorities such as Puerto Ricans and Ne- groes. The same spirit found in the general sessions was common in many of the sectional gather- ings sponsored by each of the seven NCEA departments and affiliated organizations. Catholic high school educat- ors, in an effort to understand a leading Protestant organiza- tion's stand against Federal aid, to church-related schools, heard itdetailed by Dr. R. Lanier Hunt, executive director of the department of religion and pub- lic education of the National Council of Churches. To share the reactions and ob- servations of a Catholic consti- tutional lawyer deeply involved in the Federal aid debate, they heard from William B. Ball of Harrisburg, Pa. He urged con- tinued communication w i t h those who do not understand the Catholic position, emphasizing the ability to listen to the oppon- ent and answer in his terms. Catholic college educators, obviously deeply concerned over the future of private higher education as costs rise and public institutions assume a greater percentage of the nation's college population, heard two maior appeals that they carefully rethink their responsibilities. 'Time Will Come...' The Rev. Charles F. Donovan, S.J., of Boston (Mass.) College told them that "it seems as though the time will come when Catholic churchmen will have to ask whether the Church is committed to providing for Catholics' total education from nursery through graduate and professional schools." Later, Archbishop P a u I 3. Hallinan of Atlanta gave the col- lege educators three recom- mendations: 1) pooling of re- sources, such as faculty and li- brary; 2) serious across-the- board sttdy of other possibili- ties before a new Catholic col- lege.is established; 3) broaden- ing the scope of Catholic high- er education to include Catholic students on secular campuses. Things were as dynamic in the elementary school depart- ment's meetings. 'FarwardWhlch Way?' The keynote session featured a ringing defense of Catholic elementary schools' contribu- tions by Rev. John Sweeney, Peoria, Ill., school superintend- ent, and then a discussion on the future of these schools, backbone of the Catholic edu- cational system, revealingly en- titled: "Forward March--Which Way?" To get the opinions of teach- ers and principals, nine propo- sitions were presented nearly 1,380 persons in attendance--a sea of black habits sparkling with the contrasting bright dresses of lay teachers. After hearing two school su- perintendents  Msgr. John B. McDowell of Pittsburgh and Rev. James C. Donohue of Bal- timore -- debate each of the propositions, the educators cast their ballots. Highlights of their vote was a conviction that a child seek- ing admission to the firsf grade should be six years old by Sep- tember 1 of the year he starts school, that the present school day should not be extended, that modern foreign languages do not belong in the elementary school and that report cards are better than individual parent- teacher conferences. REV. JOSEPH LOGAN, S,$. :iii ?-i MR. JOEL JORDAN, S.J. family and she is at St. Ed- ward Parish school in Seattle. Attended St. Joseph's Mr. Joel B. Jordan, S.J., was born in Seattle, the son of Ralph and Dorothy Jordan, March 14, 1938. He attended St. Joseph Grade School and moved to Pendleton, Ore., where he graduated in 1956 from St. Joseph Academy. That fall he entered the Jesuit novitiate at Sheridan and has just completed his phil- osophical studies. Two of Mr. Jordan's broth- ers are also in the Society-- Mr. Paul K. Jordan teaching at the Cooper Valley School, Glennallen, Alaska, and Mr. John W. Jordan is finishing his second year of philosophy at St. Louis University. Other departure ceremonies scheduled for these missionar- ies are at St. Leo Church, Tacoma, at the 10:30 a.m. Mass Sunday, May 5, and St. Aloysius Church, Spokane, at the 11 a.m. Mass May 19.
