The school is tO be located at Watson Lake in this Canadian territory. Construction is scheduled to begin this summer. The approval came after weeks of debate in the council over the budget term. On two occasions the councilmen voted 3 to 3 on the item and the issue was decided by a vote of the chairman in fa- vor of the construction.

SEES START JOINT SEMINARIES -- Tours, France, May 22 (NC)--The bishops of six French dio- ceses have announced a joint reorganization of their major seminaries aimed at trai.ning their priests to be "educators of the Faith" for today's world. Archbishop Louis Ferrand of Tours and the Bishops of Le Marts, Sees, Laval, Blois and Chartes said in a joint statement: "We have just made a choice which profound- ly involves the future of our dioceses." Up to now, almost all of France's 90 dioceses have had their own major seminaries. Seminarians from Sees, Laval and Le Mans will now study two years of philosophy at Sees. Those from Tours, Blois and Chartres will study philosophy at Tours. " * "k SUITS FOR PRIESTSmSanto Domingo, Domini- can Republic, May 22 (NC)mArchbishop Octavto A.

The pilgrim, Anthony Schwabauter, left Hil- versum March 3 with his marketing cart containing what he said was all he needed for the journey. He arrived here May 3. Schwabauter said that after seeing His Holiness Pope John XXIII he would continue walking through some other Italian citLes. But as for the long trip back to the Netherlandshe's taking the train. 9c * * 'THE APPLE OF HIS EYE'--Vatican City, May 22 (Radio, NC)His Holiness Pope John XXIII told 1,500 children here that they are the apple of his eye "because you are children who pray with the natural vivacity of your age." The children are members of the Association of the Living Rosary, whose members are supposed to pray the Rosary every day. They came on a special train of 115 cars in hon- or of the 15 mysteries of the Rosary. "We would like to think that the affection We feel for you reflects the love Jesus had in His heart when little children surrounded Him and He listened tO them and blessed them tenderly," Pope John sakl. VATICAN DENIES REPORTS  Vatican City, May 22 (Radio, NC)--A high Vatizan spokesman de- nied news stories attributed to Vatican sources pre- dicting the "imminent" departure of Jozsef Cardinal Mindszenty from Hungary. The Italian news agency, ANSA, had stated that the Cardinal Primate of Hungary, who has been living in asylum at the U. S. legation in Buda- pest since 1956, would soon leave Hungary. : The Vatican spokesman said (May 4) the Holy See was "still in the dark" about the reports. RECITE ROSARY AT WORK  Moncalvo Di Monferrato, Italy, May 21 (NC)--Probably one of the shirts you wear was made while the seamstress was saying the Rosary. More than 1,000 shirts a day, depending on the design, leave the shirt factory here managed by the Salesian Sisters. Most of them stay in Italy, but many of them are exported for one of the big- name brands in the United States. The building looks like a factory: drab red brick, drawing out a long, characterless front, scarcely re- lieved by a few small, square windows. That iz what it was meant to be. CALLS FOR USE OF UNCULTIVATED LANDS --Quite, Ecuador, May 22 (Radio, NC) -- Ecuador's Bishops have called for land reform and the cultiva- tion of unused lands to help solve Ecuador's eco- nomic problems. A joint pastoral letter, signed by Carlos Maria Cardinal della Terra, Archbishop of Quite, three archbishops, 12 bishops and six other prelates, also urged that technical, financial and humanistic training be made available to the country's farmers. The Bishops said that they "cannot remain in- different before sufferings of the temporal order en- dured by so many of our sons; the human commun- ity cannot realize its spiritual aims independently of the temporal realities it is submerged in." .,Jr * MORE PRIESTS OUSTED FROM SUDAN -- Verona, Italy, May 21 (NC) w The arrival here of two more priests expelled from the Sudan brought the total number of Catholic missionaries ousted by the Sudanese Muslim-controlled government to 108. The Rev. Fathers Angelo Confalonieri, F.S.C.J., and Raffaele Tessitore, F.S.C.J., arrived at the head- quarters of the Sons of the Sacred Heart here April 20. Both were ejected from the Vicariate Apostolic of Wau, in the Southern Sudan. Father Confalonieri, former vice rector of the minor seminary in Wau, was deported on charges of having entered a nationalized school. Father Tessitore was charged with having given religious instructions to minors without government author- ization. The ouster of Father Confalonieri climaxed a running war against him by the Sudanese regime. Senate. He expressed "personal mis- givings over the reports that the Department of State plans to re-establish normal diplo- matic relations with the Kadar government and that it has de- cided to drop its opposition to the accreditation of the Hun- garish delegation to the United Nations. "I believe that it would be a terrible mistake if we take these actions," the Senator said May 20. "Last Tuesday I dispatched an urgent wire to the Sacra. tary of State expressing the hope that the Department will strive for a delay on the mat. tar of Hungary, so that there will be time to reconsider its position and time for proper consultation with Congress. "The so-called normaliza. tion of relations with the Kadar government would in- volve a drastic change of policy. Such a change on an issue of such importance should not take place until there has been proper con- sultation with Congress. "But in this case, unfortu- nately, there was no consults. tion. The newspapers Monday morning reported on the text of a State Department memo- randum to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and House Foreign Affairs Committee, out- lining the new policy in Hun- gary. The text of this memo- randum, however, was not transmitted to the members of the Foreign Relations Com- mittee until Monday afternoon or Tuesday morning. If the U.N. Credentials Committee moves rapidly, we may find ourselves confronted with the SEN. THOMAS J. DODD (D.-Conn.) is shown as he was honored with a special award by the CYO of the Washington Archdiocese. In a speech before the Senate later, the Senator protested the "soft" policy toward Hungary.--(Religious News Service Photo.) fact that the credentials of the Hungarian delegation have been cc,cpted before Congress has has any opportunity, at all to ons:der or discuss the impli- cations of this reversal of policy." Sen. Dodd's stand was sup- ported by several other sena- tors, including Frank J. Lausche of Ohio, Kenneth B. Keating of New York, Roman Hruska of Nebraska and Strom Thurmond of South Carolina, and Jacob K. Javits of New York. Calling attention to a recent St ate Department memo- randum outlining the new policy on Hungary, Sen. Dodd said it "justifies the proposed reversal of policy by referring to improved conditions in Hungary, and to the granting government and the Catholic Church and of the fact that more American motion pictures are being shown." "I confess that I cannot un- derstand this reasoning," the Senator asserted. "There may have been some minor abatement of tyranny since the Hungarian Revolution was suppressed in blood. But the essential facts remain that the present government was imposed on the Hungarian people by Soviet bayonets, that it had defied repeated U.N. resolutions, and that it does not dare submit itself to free elections under U.N. auspices. "Any improvement that may have taken place is of alto- gether secondary importance. "The greatest single ac- complishment of the Hungar- ian Revolution was that it succeeded in decolleetivizing the Hungarian peasants. The Kadar government, using coercion of all kinds, has forced the Hungarian peas- ants back into the hated col- lectives. Today, 96.5 per cent of all the Hungarian farm land is collectivized- the highest percentage in any satellite nation." "The proposed revision of policy on Hungary seeks to relax tensions with the Soviet Union and thus reduce the danger of war," he stated. "But if we destroy the hope and the will to resist of the captive peoples we shall be removing the single most im- portant deterrent to Soviet aggression. It is my convic- tion that such a policy would make the leaders of the Krem- lin more certain of themselves, more arrogant, more demand- ing, more prepared to risk ag- gression. "It would, in short, under- mine our own security and posite of what its propon- ents hope it will accomp- lish." Senator Lausche s a i d : "There are 100 million people in the captive nations.

Senator Keating said: "I am very much concerned about this matter . . . and I sin- cerely trust that this will not be the first step toward offi- cial U.S. recognition of the brutal and ruthless Hungarian regime which slaughtered its own people on the streets." Senator Hruska said "ap- parently the skids are being fixed to reward Hungary" with U.N. membership instead of giving her "the criticism she deserves." Senator Thurmond said "it would be a marked disservice if the government of the United States were to recognize the Hungarian regime," and "a great mistake if Hungary, under its present government, were to be admitted to the United Nations." Senator Javits said the Hun- garian Communist regime "has been found guilty of crimes against humanity" and does not deserve membership in the "family of nations." current talks between the Vatican and Hungary, ac- cording to the Italian news agency ANSA. Vatican sources would neither confirm nor deny the report, but one source said that the approach, if true, "would seem to fit into the new climate" developing be- tween the Vatican and Com- munist countries. "Czechoslovakia also desires to start conversation with the Vatican to examine the same problems which are being negotiated between Hungary and the Holy See," the ANSA sto W said. It quoted "informed sourc- es" as saying that a "trusted canon" was sent from Prague to Vienna for this purpose and met Franziskus Cardi- nal Koenig, Archbishop of Vienna before he came to Rome May 16. "Cardinal Koenig stressed the need that he meet first with Archbishop Josef Beran of Prague who is still confined in the monastery of Teltsch in southern Moravia," ANSA said. "This meeting, however, has not yet been authorized by the Czechoslovaks." ANSA said that the unnamed Czech canon has returned to Prague and reported to "com- petent bodies" on the outcome of his mission.

"I never realized how soon By Bill Fanning NEW YORK, May 23 (1;qC)mThe Second Vati- can Council will speak out on peace and war, Leo Cardinal Suenens, Archbis'hop of Malines-Brussels, Belgium, has disclosed. Cardinal Suenens, here to ad- dress a meeting of the U.S. committee for the United Na- tions on the recent papal peace and war in a special schema on vital world problems. This schema will take up such issues as population, hun- ger, race, the developing na- tions, the Church and the in- dividual, the Church and cul- ture, and the Church and so- cial and economic affairs, he said in an interview. The Cardinal is head of the commission drafting this schema. Cardinal Suenens al- so said he sees "no reason" why newsmen should not be admitted to at least some sessions of the council. Cardinal Suenens was asked whether Pope John had advo- cated unilateral disarmament in his peace encyclical, in the event that both sides could not be persuaded to disarm. He replied: "No. In Pope John's view both sides must disarm." The Belgian Cardinal spoke at length of the need for making the Church's message more intelligible to the modem world. He interpreted the di- vision of the council Fathers at the first session over the question of the sources of Rev- elation in these terms, saying: "It was largely a question of how to express ourselves. Some stressed the need of under- lining principles in all things and of saying exactly what has always been said. "Some wanted to say things so that all can understand them properly. These are dif- ferences over modes of ex- pression and such things can be quite important."

"There are so many misun- derstandings," he said. "Words change so easily in meaning. And today so many people do not unders'tand religious affairs . . Matters of religion must be expressed to them very clearly and exactly and in some detail if they are to un- derstand what we are talking about." Cardinal Suenens stressed that laymen, must have a more active role in the Church. "We must emphasize that the lay person has not only the role of helping the priest materially, but of helping him in his spiritual role, too," he said. "The layman must share in spreading the kingdom of God in the world." While in Chicago, Cardinal Suenens told reporters that he spoke with His Holiness re- cently and that he "is not dangerously ill." "Our prayers are that Al- mighty God spare him for us for many years," the Belgian prelate said.

A report reaching Vienna said that their talks centered on the developing adjustment of relations with the Roman Catholic Church in predomi- nantly Catholic Poland and Hungary. The Hungarian Radio re- 1orted that Kadar has re- turned May 18 to Budapest. PAP made no mention of Church-State relations in its official announcement. It said that the talks took place in a friendly atmosphere and dealt with further tightening of P o I i s h - Hungarian relations "with particular stress on ec- onomic problems apart from some aspects of the interna- tional situation of interest to both countries."

He was or- dained June 23, 1850, and serv- ed in various Bergamo parishes until 1855 when he reopened an abandoned oratory in Bergamo which soon became a center of pastoral activity. Noting the lack of educa- tion in his area, Blessed Luigi began night classes for both young and old. His efforts won him the respect and as- sistance of his bishop and various municipal authorities in the Bergamo diocese. His work led him to assist the poor in the city of Bergamo and the surrounding country- side and in 1867 he founded an orphanage. In 1869 he established a community of Sisters which later became the Sisters of the Little Poor of Bergamo. Today the congrega- tion has 1,400 professed mem- bers and 233 convents, most of them in Italy. Never in robust health, Father Palazzolo was taken ill in May, 1886. But he lived long enough to see the rule of his Sisters' congregation approved by the Holy See. 23 (NC)--A petition protesting the sale of magazines bearing obscene photographs was brought before the City Coun- cil by ll girls from St. Teresa's Academy. The petition con- tained 12,318 names, those of academy students and nearby residents. The girls asked the council to start a campaign aimed at curbing the sale of such maga- zines. Sam Wolff, assistant city manager, told them that under the state penal code such mat- ters are handled by the county district attorney.
