SEEKS CATECHISM" REVISIONmBerlin, April Archbishop Joseph F. Rummel's school integration order. The archdiocesan school office reported that incomplete re- turns on advance registration at 152 out of 162 Catholic schools showed 73,514 pupils registered for next September, compared with 74,306 in the same schools last September. This is a differ- ence of 792. "Indications are that the total enrollment in the archdiocese next fall may equal or exceed last September's," the echool office said. No figures were immediately available on the number of Negro students enrolling in previously all-white Catholic schools. A school office spokesman said there had been no breakdown of the total figure into new enrollees (including Negroes) and chil- dren merely returning to the same schools. The preliminary report covered enrollments through mid-day of April 19. The school office said parishes which will have addi- tional classroom space by the opening of the new school year will continue registering pupils until September, when complete en- rollment figures will be compiled. The office said Catholic high schools in the archdiocese had registered 15,583 pupils by April 19, an increase of 901 over last year. The new enrollment figures confirmed findings of an "infor- mal survey" conducted by the school office in the middle of the registration week, which showed that some 90 per cent of the children in Catholic schools had indicated they would return next September. Following Archbishop Rummel's integration order March 27, there had been predictions in segregationist circles that Catholic parents would boycott the Catholic schools. Meanwhile, there were further developments in the wake of Archbishop Rummel's action April 16 in excommunicating three Catholic segregationist leaders for their efforts to block school integration. Mrs. B. J. Galliot, Jr., president of Save Our Nation, Inc., which holds that the Bible teaches segregation, said she had received invitations to attend several Protestant churches since she was excommunicated. Mrs, Galliot said she had not accepted the invitations, but would not attend Mass again until the excommunication is lifted. Earlier, Mrs. Gaillot knelt before the Archbishop on the grounds of his residence and asked him to bless her and "admit . . . that you did not want to integrate." Archbishop Rummel made no reply. The other two excommunicated segregationists-political boss BI.

ADDRESSING THE FAITHFUL in St. Louis Cathedral, New Orleans, Archbishop Joseph Francis Rummel, who excommunicated three persons for opposing integration of parochial schools, emphasized loyalty and obedience to Christ and His Church. Leander H. Perez, St., and Jackson G. Ricau, executive secretary of the South Louisiana Citizens Council--said they would continue to attend Mass. "I'd like to see them keep me out," Perez said. (Theologians have pointed out that the form of excommu- nication imposed on Mrs. Gaillot, Perex and Rieau permits them to be present at Mass, but does not permit them to take an active part in the ceremony.) Mrs. Gaillot's husband, B. J. Galliot, Jr., has written to Archbishop Rummel requesting that he, too, be excommunicated, since he shares his wife's beliefs. Mr. Gaillot said he plans to continue attending Mass until he receives an answer.

Ahr of Trenton has rebuked "certain laymen" for "ignorant, insolent and arrogant criticism of the Bishops of the country." "There has been in recent months a vast volume of ill- considered, badly advised and poorly defined talk about the place of the laity in the Church, which has resulted in attitudes and understandings that are untheological and un- canonical," Bishop Ahr said. "THe talk has alrsady re- suited in ignorant, in so!ent and arroglhnt criticism of the Bishops of the country by certain laymen. Such talk can only build false hopes of unattainable p o w r a n d prominence in the minds of proud and ambitious men. Such talk sows the seeds of anti-clericalism and sehisan." Bishop Ahr, speaking April 23 to a banquet of the Ancient Order of Hibernians and their auxiliary, said the Church was "founded by Jesus Christ as a monarchial, hierarchical soci- ety in which all right to rule and the divine right to teach were restricted to the Apostles under Peter and to their suc- cessors, the Bishops of the Catholic Church, with and un. der the Pope. "And no amount of talk by compromising theologians or ambitious laymen will change that fact," he added. The Bishop praised the "har- vest of sanctity" in Irish tra- dition, attributing it to devo- tion to prayer, love and loyal- ty to the Church, and rever- ence for the priesthood. He contrasted these virtues with the attitudes of those whom he criticized, saying: "Far better was the love of the Church and the respect of the priesthood so marked in the lives of your fathers." He recalled that His Holt. ness Pope John XXIII last year told a group of Catholic Action pilgrims that the apos- tolate of the Church is "a mission, the execution of an order," which Catholics must carry on under the direction of their bishops. Sister Clement Celebrates Jubilee BELLEVUE -- Sister Mary Clement, C.S.J., celebrated her golden jubilee as a religious April 23 at Mount St. Mary Pro- vincial House. Sisters from the order of Sisters of St. Joseph of New- ark gathered together and Rev. Denis Foudy, S.S., chaplain at the provincial house, cele- brated the anniversary Mass. Sister Celement was a gradu- ate nurse when she entered the novitiate' in 1912. She has served in hospitals throughout the Pacific Northwest with most of her time being spent at St. Joseph Hospital, Belling- ham. late intends to make use of by applying it widely, has also increased reasons for world anxiety which are not imaginary. "Every nation, big and small, considering its situation even simply within the limits of its own internal position, has reason to fear. "Beloved children, this fear can be dissipated only by the harmonious efforts of all peoples for the preservation of peace where it reigns now. And where it is missing, decisive efforts should be made to remove every danger or threat which is c9n- trary to its foundations. "The foundations of peace are nothing else than truth, justice, true love and a generous willingness to give and to give oneself for one's brothers. "In this the Lord Jesus was the Master with the word. He gave the example with His life. From Him we learn the exercise of this love and this outpouring of peace. "Only the Peace of Christ can preserve and save the world because it rests on eternal truth and has as its object man living in time but moving toward eternity. "We proclaim before Heaven and earth that this year and through all time the gift of Easter is the gift of peace. The peace of Easter is the peace of Christmas. "We offer it to you as an exultant expression of Mother Church; with the hope that no one will want to evade the calls of peace and duty which it imposes on everyone. "And now We should like to call and hail you with the familiar greeting, Happy Easter, each in your own language." Pope Cites Mission Effort Of Church (Continued from Page 1) He recalled that it was also an ancient custom of the popes in Rome to begin the Easter Vigil at night by traveling from the Basilica of St. John Lateran to that of St. Mary Major to offer Mass. At this time the pope would greet each of the prelates of his court with the words: "The Lord is truly risen." The response, Pope John said, was "And He appeared unto Simon." The Pontiff then briefly sketched St. Peter's part in giving witness to the Resur- rection and the Lord's com- mand to Peter "to continue and to direct in His place the work of evangelization of the world." "Beloved children," he said, "the work for souls, such as preaching and other acts of the sacred ministry, gives testi- mony of the Resurrection of Jesus. And the response on the part of each of the faithful to live up to the obligations of a Christian life -- w h i c h the Pope does not cease to en- courage- contributes to strengthening the visible unity of Holy Church and to paving the way for many and fruitful apostolic activities which are carried on to the farthest reaches of the earth. "This is the meaning of the triple announcement of this sacred night: the Lord is truly risen. From this fact is drawn the inspiration not only of the missionary apos- tolate but also of the coura- geous defense of the prin- ciples upon which is built the edifice of human dignity and of Christian civilization." Throughout his message, the Pontiff intertwined the double idea of the historical and spir- itual consequences of the Res- urrection and of the role of the popes from the time of St. Peter in carrying out the con- sequence of that greatest of miracles.
