MAIL RELIGION COURSES POPULAR--Seoul, Korea, May 9 (NC)--Correspondence courses in reli- ion, successful in the Western countries where non- atholics often fLud it psychologically difficult to ap- proach priests directly, are also proving their value in this mission land. A total of 98 adult Baptisms have been re- ported in a recent nine-month period in response to a mail course conducted by a refugee priest from North Korea, Father Vietorinus Youn, and a  missioner from Chicago, Father John R. Heisse, M.M. Interest in the course quickened after it was ad- vertised in Korean daily newspapers.

Sweeney's script read: "It was not until her eldest son, William, had almost fin- ished high school that she realized his desire to becmne a-priest. We know that the example set by the devout mother helped to make her son so successful in serving God," Her most triumphant joy was seeing her eldest child or, dained a priest June 18, 1944. She has since remained with her two other sons on that Irish farm in Bailyquaid, Coun- ty Leix. Both of her other sons are still single. Her daughter is now Mrs. William Phelan, mother of seven and residing at Garron Castle, Ballybrophy, County Leix. Mr. Treacy had died in 1948 while Father Treacy was serving in St. James Cathe- dral Parish. And so Mrs. Treacy was con- tent to spend her remaining years in Ireland while hoping to see her priest-son every so often during his vacations abroad. But all that changed when Thomas J. O'Brien, general chairman for the Mother of the Year program, invited her to come to Seattle to re- ceive the 1962 honor. With the assistance of Ray. Wil- liam Meany of St. Patrick's College in Maynooth, County Kildare, the Knights were able to have Mrs. Treaey leave her beloved Ireland for the first time for the lung plane ride to the Pacific Northwest. Father Meany had been a classmate of Father Treacy since high school and was or- dained with him. Another key figure who helped in the arrangements was Father Mc- Ennis, who has known the family for years. Meanwhile, telephones began to ring in K ofC members' homes throughout Seattle to notify them of the surprise. All was conducted with tight- lipped secrecy. When Mrs. Treacy arrived Sunday (her plane came three hours early), she was brought to the city by Father McEnnis. Later Mrs. Treacy was lodged at, of all places, Holy Names Academy, where her priest-son is in residence. The Mother of the Year pro- gram began Monday at 7 p.m. with dinner. At the head table with Mrs. Treacy were the Arch- bishop, Father McEnnis and K of C dignitaries. Is Mother Of Year IN ONE OF the most dramatic gestures, made by Seattle Knights of Columbus, Mrs. Mary Agnes Treacy, mother of Ray. William Treacy (right) was brought from Ireland to Seattle and named 1962 K of C Mother of the Year. Her being a recipient was kept secret from Father Treacy until the actual anouncemcnt of the winner. The honor was bestowed Monday in the K of C Hall before the Most Reverend Thomas A. Connolly, Archbishop of Seattle, and 400 other Knights and guests, all of whom shared in the joy of both mother and priest-son. Father Treacy had dis- closed later that Archbishop ConnoUy was the first arch- bishop his mother had ever met. And she could not imag- ine herself eating at the same table with the Archbishop. This was such an honor. At 8:15, those at the head /:able proceeded to the third- floor level and retired in a small room, adjoining the council chambers. At 8:25 Father Treacy ar- rived with his guests to deliver the main talk at the presenta- tion program. His guests, Rabbi and Mrs. Raphael Levine and Arthur Gerbel St., had taken him to dinner on the pretext of discussing their KOMO.TV religious program, "Challenge." During his opening remarks, Father Treacy had said: "One of the best secrets I know is the secret of the mother b e i n g honored to- night." Many throughout the audi- ence moved uneasily thinking he had stumbled onto the secret. "I raise my right hand," Father continued, "as a sign that I, too, do not know who she is. But in so honoring her we honor the symbol of motherhood. And, whenever we honor motherhood, we honor Mary." Pursuing his theme, "Mother- hood of Mary," Father Treaty concluded that "motherhood is the art and quest of lave and that the Blessed Mother has fulfill- ed it perfectly." When the reading of the bio- graphy had begun and certain statistical d a t e s and places mentioned, F a t h e r suddenly realized that the one to be honored was his mother. His look of surprise gave way to tears as he prepared himself to receive this honor for her. He had thought that it would be presented "in absentia." He was yet to see her receive the honor herself. At approximately 9 p.m., she and those escorting her en- tered the chambers. It was, indeed, a dramatic scene. The days, following the K of C program will be full of activ- ity. Wednesday she spent two hours watching her priest-son working in the Chancery. This Sunday, Father Treacy and his mother along with the Levines and Dr. and Mrs. Mar- tin Goslin--the doctor being the other panelist on "Challenge" --will be guests 0f Century 21 at the World's Fair. Mrs. Treaty will be riding up the elevator and dining 600 feet in the air with the others in the Space Needle. Speaking with a brogue that is all County Kilkenny, Mrs. Treacy says that America has made a tremendous impression on her by her people. She has not gotten over their genuine warmth, hospitality and sin- cerity. She has been especially pleased when persons, meet- ing her for the first time, greet her as an old family friend. Meanwhile, the smile on Fa- ther Treacy, gained that Mon- day evening, has not left his face. "This surprise has really given me new insights into human nature. I shall be happy to live and die in the service of the people of Se- attle. I am grateful to all those who have made this p o s s i b I e, particularly my Brother Knights and those from all walks of life and religion who have expressed their joy to me." The Vice Chancellor of the Archdiocese, Father is also director of the Catholic Infor- mation Center and has been chaplain of Seattle Council since 1951. He has served in St. Atphonsus, Cathedral and Immaculate Parishes. He was incardinated in the Archdiocese in 1951, seven years after his arrival here. His mother joins four other outstanding women who have previously been honored by the Knights. They are Mrs. Ger- trude McKay, 1960; Mrs. Kate Logan, 1959; Mrs. Steve Wood, 1960; and Mrs. Richard Kearns, 1061. Mrs. Treacy will remain in Seattle until after May 24. When she returns home, Mrs. Treacy will be the "world's best traveler." 40,000 Martin Receptions For ....

Oriental bishops wearing gilded crowns sat next to purple-robed African prelates. Europe's an- dent nobility, including Italian princes, rubbed elbows with de- vout Irish nuns and clapping, cheering Spanish pilgrims. Among the processmn of gift- bearers to the Pope at the Of- tottery of the canonization Mass were two young Negro students for the priesthood of St. Martin's own order, the Dominicans. They carried tra- ditional gold cages containing doves. Despite Pope John's often demonstrated dislike of ap- plause during religious cere- momes, the pilgrims could not contain themselves as he entered the basilica. Clapping followed his slow progress down the longest nave in the world. Again as he pro- nounced the traditional words of canonization, applause welled up from the people. However, when the Confiteor was chanted, containing Martin's name among the list of saints after SS. Peter and Paul, the crowd was silent. Throughout the 150-minute Pontifical Mass that followed, Catholics from at least 30 coun- tries answered the Latin re- sponses of the Mass of St. Martin.

The feast of St. Thomas Aqui- nas normally falls on March 7, but was displaced this year by Ash Wednesday. VATICAN CITY (Radio, NC) --The Holy See has granted permission for the celebration this year of special votive Masses in honor of St. Thomas Aquinas in "those churches and oratories where the Saint is venerated as the heavenly patron of all Catholic schools."

Bishop Begin urged his peo- ple to inaugurate the history of the new Diocese of Oakland by dwelling for a few moments on charity--"the Queen of Vir- tues." He pointed out that Christ spent His public life remov- ing from others the cross of pain and suffering; that when He healed the man born blind He also changed his vocation so that he might now save his soul without the afflic- tion. The Bishop warned that in the final judgment, fraternal charity seems to be the sole measure of man's worth in the sight of God; that man shall stand or fall for all eternity on whether or not he fed the hun- gry, gave drink to the thirsty, and performed the works of mercy, SEATTLE UHIVERSITY EUROPEAH TOUR DEPARTING SEATTLE June 15, 1962 Led by Father William J.
