No Cream In Her Coffee YUCATAN, Mexico (NC) -- The Mexican Woman who cooks for the Maryknoll Fathers here was e little puzzled when some- one gave them a new set of dishes. "What's this for?" she asked, holding out the cream pitcher. "It's for cream," answered Father Walter W. Winrich MM, of Raymond, Wash. "What do you need cream for?" she asked. "For coffee," ha replied. "Now, Father," she said in a motherly tone, "don't worry about buying cream for your coffee. I can make coffee for you out of plain water." Face School Retrenchment LONDON (NC) -- Because of manpower shortages, English Jesuits are considering a reduction in the number of schools they operate. Father Thcnnas Corbishley ST, Jesuit superior here, said expanding commitments, coupled with e slight drop in vocations in the past 20 years, has led to this situation. The Jesuits conduct 10 schools in Britain, two in Southern Rhodesia and one each in South Africa and British Guiana. Their new school at Hornchurch is being turned over to the Brentwood diocese for staffing. About a fourth of the English 3muSt total of 640 priests and 230 scholastics are in educational work. Hails Disarmament Move VATICAN CITY (NC) -- Somewhat tardily, the Vatican City newspaper has recognized an Italian suggestion that the billions dollars spent on the arms race could be better diverted to the relief of worldwide poverty. A front-page editorial in L'Osservatoro Romano pointed out May 20 that the suggestion, delivered by the Italian delegate at the UN disarmament commission the previous month was really an echo of the appeal made by Pope Paul VI in Bombay last De- comber. The editorial said history has given the lie to the common notion that. to obtain peace a nation must prepare for war. "To set aside at least a part of the armament funds for the help of the countries on their way to development would erect a milestone along history's troubled road," said the paper. Help Unemployed Farmers MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay (NC) -- A group of 200 unemployed farmers and their families who set up housekeeping in an elegant pavkin this city have been given help by u Catholic bishop and a Methodist minister. , The farmers came to Montevideo to protest the miserable economic conditions for farmers. They were assisted by Bishop Antordo Corse, Apostolic Administrator of Montevideo, and by the R. Emilio Castro, a minister. Bishop Corse promised that the children of the farmers would be given homes, food end schooling by the Church. Father Har- oldo Ponce De Leon, in whose parish the workers were camping, appealed to his wealthy congregation for clothes and food. Fanfan| at Guadalupe MEXICO CITY (NC) -- Italian Foreign Minister Amintare Fanfani, bare for a seven-day visit as a guest of President Diaz Ordaz, participated in a Mass celebrated in the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadelupe by the Apostolic delegate, for Mexico Arch- biop Luigi Ralmondi May 18. The Italian Christian Democratic leader received Holy Com- mtmton and afterward visited the sanctuary, where he was pre- aented with an image of the Virgin of Guadalupe. ,Angelus Revived in Islands MANILA (NC) -- An old Philippine tradition, the morning and evening Angelus, a prayer in honor of the Incarnation, is being revived here through the efforts of the Philippine first lady, Mrs. Evangelina Macapagal. As part of the government's observance of the fourth centen- nialof the Christianization of the country, she has taped a reci- tation of the Angelus with members of her family and staff. It is being broadcast over 63 radio stations throughout the Philip- pines during the centennial year. Co.Campus Schools Planned OTrAWA, Ont. (NC)--Expansion forced a high school for boys had difficulty finding a site, but came up with a money- saving idea. The two schools agreed to build a co-campus mod- em oomplex which will cost $3,500,000 and split the expense. The schools will house more than 1,000 students. ROME(NC)mFather Pedro Arrupe S J, a 57-year- old Spaniard who studied in the United States and was in Hiroshima when the American atom bomb fell there, is the new leader of the world's 36,000 Jesuits. He was elected ha're on the third ballot of the first day of voting May 22. Father Arrupe came here as superior of the Jesuit Japanese province. He was in Hiroshima as superior of the novitiate there on the fateful August 6, 1945, when the first atom bomb fell. He turned the novitiate into a hospital and put himself, his staff and the novices at the service of the injured. The new Jesuit general, the sixth from Spain, was born at Bilbao, on Nov. 14, 1907. He entered the Society of Jesus at the age of 20. When the society was suppressed in Spain in 1931 he went to Belgium, and later studied theology in the Netherlands. He was ordained in 1936. After ordination Father Arrupe came to the United States for further studies. He took his fourth year theology studies at St. Mary's College, St. Mary's, Kansas, and his tertianship at St. Stanislaus Novitiate, Cleveland. In 193"8 he went to Japan as a missioner. He became master of novices in Hiroshima and later rector of the novitiate. In 1954 he was appointed vice-provincial of the Jesuits in Japan, and in 1958 was promoted to provincial. He is the author of a book on Japan and has written various commentaries in the Japanese language on the spiritual exercises of the Jesuit founder, St. Ignatius Loyola. He speaks six lan- guages. The question of whether he would govern the society for life, as have the previous 27 generals, still remained to be determined after his election. The day of election began with a Mass in the Jesuit General House at 7:30 a.m., coneelebrated by Father John Swain SJ, of Canada and twelve other priests. Father Swain had governed the society since the death last October S of Father John Bap- tist Janssens SJ. Then Father Maurice Giuliaci, SJ, director of the French Jesuit review Etudes and representative of the French province, addressed the electors in Latin on their rspeonsibilities. After that, all 218 electors began the hour of prayer, required by the constitution of St. Ignatius, to cell upon God's help in making the best possible choice. Two days after his election as the new general of the Jesuits, Father Arrupe spent an evening with his former colleagues from the United States talking over old times. Father Arrupe attended a reception given for the electors from the United States by Loyola University of Chicago's Rome center. The new general became the guest of honor. During the two-hour reception Father Arrupe and others watched a taped television interview in which he said he wants the order to become mobile troops in the fight against atheism. "We want to be like a cavalry squadron ready to go and fight where we are sent,",, he said on the Italian network pro- gram. At the reception Father Arrupe spoke at length with four American classmates: Father John Foley S J, superior of the Wisconsin province; Father James McQuade SJ, rector of the tertian house of St. Stanislaus in Cleveland where Father Arrupe made his tertianship, Father George C-anss, head of the Institute for Jesuit Research in Chicago; and Father Calvert Alexander of New York who came to Rome to be press liaison officer at the Jesuit general congregation. Cardinal Shehan Asks Additional Improvement in Catholic Press By Elmer Yon Feldt NEW YORK (NC)  While praising the Cath- olic press for progress in depth and literary and pro- fessiohal achievement, Lawrence Cardinal Shehan pointed to the need for "much improvement." He cited incidents of "almost wholesale negative criticism" and "some startling examples of violation not only of charity but of justice." The Archbishop of Baltimore made his admonitions (May 20) at the awards luncheon of the 55th annual convention of the Catholic Press Association of the United States and Canada. Cardinal. Shehan, who is former honorary president of the as- sociation, spoke before an international audience since the con- vention was held in conjunction with the Seventh World Congress of the Catholic Press. His remarks were given simultaneous translation into Spanish, German, French and Italian. At the outset Cardinal Shehan defined the purpose of the Catholic press as "to present in an objective and interesting way the truth about the Church and the facts of the contemporary world which have a bearing on the Church, with the good of the Church always in mind." "The Catholic press can no more be indifferent to the good of the Church than can the general press be to the public good," the prelate added. "This does not mean that we expect it either to suppress or distort facts; but it does mean that we expect facts always to be presented in a way that conforms with the overall purpose of the press. "In the pursuit of its purpose we applaud, encourage, and ex- pect candor in the Catholic press, in conformity with the re- sensibility it bears," he continued. "On the other hand, a runa- way appetite for color which breeds sensationalism for its own sake is not competent reporting in any journalist league... "Responsible Catholic journalism, in addition to the kind of candid objectivity in the presentation of the truth which we ex- pect of the general press, must be guided by certain moral principles -- principles which in their totality may be said to con- stitute the ideal of the Catholic press," the cardinal said. "Among them are: a sense of reverance; a sense of history; a sense of responsibility; and, perhaps most important of all, a sense of justice and charity," he continued. The cardinal noted that the reverence owed to the Church 'need not  blind us to the weakness of her human element, or stifle within her ranks the voice of critical comment that is both just and reasonable." He related that the Old Testament deals frankly with the faults of Israel and the New Testament with the weaknesses of the Apostles and the scandals of the early Church. He also re. called the words of Pope Leo XlII that the "first law of hi. tory is never to dare to say anything false; the second not to fear to tell the truth." The cardinal cited a document of the Second Vatican Council stating that lay people "are entitled, indeed at times have the duty, to make known their opinions in matters concerning the wel- fare of the Church." A MISSION DOCTOR is Dr. E I e a n o r a Schroeder, shown with a young Afri- can mother and her husky child. Dr. Schroeder's brother was studying for the riest hood with the White athers when he died; she wanted to take his place in the missionsand did. She is now head of the med- ical department of the Cath- olic bishops' secretariat in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Unhappy About Letter Wr|ters s' HERToGENBOSCH, The Netherlands (NC)--Bishop Wil- liam Bekkers of s' Hertogen- bosch said he was unhappy that some Dutch Catholics felt it necessary to complain about a astoral letter by the Dutch ishops by writing to the Holy See. The bishop was referring to a pastoral by the Dutch hier- archy which stated that within the doctrinal authority of the Church different explanations can be given for the real pres- ence of Christ in the Eucharist. "But when the occasion arises" he continued with the quo- tation from the document, "let it be done through the organs established by the Church for Such purposes and always with honesty, courage, and prudence, and with respect and charity toward those who by reason of their sacred office represent the person of Christ." Cardinal Shehan added that "there have been occasions par- tQcularly during the past year when, in my opinion, shocking ir- reverence has appeared in the Catholic press." He also criticized what he called a lack of sense of history in some Catholic writing. He cited "a writer of an essay in a re- cent volume published in England and edited by one of the best- known English Catholic journalists, who is an author of no mean repute." The cardinal did not name the book, but evidently re- ferred to "Objections to Roman Catholicism" edited by Michael de la Bedoyere. After reading excerpts from the book, the cardinal noted that a main object of its score is "the superstition supposedly found in certain prescriptions of the rubrics of the Roman mis- sal issued by Pope St. Plus V some 400 years ago." "No advertence is made to the fact that the technical details found objectionable were the result, not of superstition, but of a determination to manifest, in the face of Protestant denial, by means regarded as proper then but since fallen into disuse, be- lid ia the Real Presence," the cardinal said. "Nor does there seem to be an awareness of the fact that the details on which the bitterest scorn is heaped had actually been eliminated from the rubrics by Pope John XXIII July 25, 1960, more than four years before the publication of the book in which this piece appears," he asserted. The Catholic press, the cardinal continued, has a responsi- bility of "giving a true picture of the Church -- the Church which for all its human defects, is something truly sacred. One wonders how the image of the Church as Christ's body can possibly emerge from the almost wholesale negative cri- ticism which in recent years has been the almost constant stuck-in-trade of some Catholic journalists." "One place where a sense of respensibility seems particularly to have been lacking, and where it can do real harm to the Church of the future, is in the wholesale criticism which has been leveled at the American seminary," the cardinal said. "I do not hesitate to say that an unbalanced criticism of seminaries is not only irresponsible; it is also mischevious. It is likely to do great harm to the Church by discouraging bright and promising young men from pursuing their vocation to the priesthood," he declared. Cardinal Shehan concluded by stating that to achieve genu- ine progress the Catholic press must devote itself to "the pursuit and worthy representation of truth, particularly truth about and relative to the Church; and to the pursuit of the ideal of the Catholic press -- an ideal that includes a sense of reverence, of history, of responsibility, of justice and charity." Friars Befriend Men To Extend Rosary Crusade ToAII Found to be Smugglers As;an Families ROME (NC)  Police uncovered an apparently extensive cigarette smug- gling operation while investi- gating a seemingly accidental death at a Capuchin monas- tery in the Alben hills j u st south of Rome. The f r i a r a themselves have not been ques- tioned as .ossible accomplices, and Father Antonio CoreS, OFM Cap., has been taken into cus- today by the police. He was taken from the Capuchin Church on Rome's Via Veneto, May 18. Though reports have con- flicted in many important details, police were apparent- ly agreed on the following points: F o u r men appeared at St. Francis monastery near Albano May 10 and asked the door- keeper, Father Corsi, for shel- ter. They also asked if they might unload for a short time the cargo of their truck -- sev- eral crates weighing 230 pounds apiece. The friars said th/t they hesitantly agreed when told that the crates con- tained food. During the night the men tried to back their empty truck out of the monastery grounds. The truck hit the gateway arch, however, and knocked a large gate off its hinges, killing one of the men and injuring another. The dead man was later identified as Piero Scali, and the in- jured one as Ermenegildo For- oni. The two other men in- volved -- one identified as a son of Scali -- disappeared. Father CoreS took the in- jured Foroni to a hospital in an ambulance borrowed from the nearby convent of the Pauline Sisters. On the way to the hospital he complied with Foroni's request that he hear his confession. When the priest returned to his monastery, he said later, he discovered that Scati's corpse had been moved into the bushes near the monastery gate. Father Corsi thereupon notified the police. On investigating, the police discovered stacked on the monastery grounds 28 crates containing American and Swiss cigarettes. At the invitation of the prior, Father Maria Milani OFM Cap., police investigated further and found eight more crates of cigarettes in a nearby shed. On the same day, customs of- ficials found 36 similar crates of cigarettes in a railroad box- car. Another 58 crates in the same shipment were missing. All the crates had been con- signed to a fictitious person at a Rome address and had been shipped from an Italian town near the Swiss border. As the tobacco industry is nationalized in Italy, other traffic in cigarettes is illegal. Both Seals and Foroni had police records in connection with previous smuggling ven- tures, and Foroni was on the Interpol wanted list. The friars of the small mon- astery denied any complicity with the smugglers. While they insisted that their involvement resulted only from their giving hospitality to the four men, Capuchin superiors have trans- ferred them to other houses of the order in the Rome province pending the outcome of the case. MANILA (NC)- Plans to spread the family Rosary move- ment among Philippine families and to all the people of Asia were revealed here by Father Patrick Peyton CSC. The Irish-born "rosary priest" said at a press conference that Manila would be the center of the crusade, and that 100,000 rosaries have been ordered from Dublin to start the in- tensive Rosary crusade here. A CATHOLIC PRIEST on duty in ante Domingo, Domin- ican Republic, walks along the street under protection of a US Army patrol. Red Cross In Second Decade of Aid to PaW's WASHINGTON, DC  four visits to her son. S u c h The second decade of a prized and unique service to Americans held prisoner by the People's Democratic Republic of China begins May 30. Exactly at noon on May 30, 1955, an American citizen in the uniform of the Red Cross marched to the center of the Lowu Bridgehead, separating British Hang Kong from the Chinese mainland, and turned over to a representative of the Chinese Red Cross the first in a series of monthly packages for Americans being held in Chinese prisons. In the intervening years, the American Red Cross man's monthly delivery of parcels at the bridge has been the US prisoners' only link with home. Some of the packages, con- taining food and comfort arti- cles have been p r o v i d e d by families of the interned men. Others have been prepared by the Red Cross itself. The number of Americans during the decade has dwin- dled from 44 US airmen and civilians to four. They are Bishop James E. Walsh of Cumberland, Md.; John Dow- ney, New Britain, Conn.; Richard Fecteau, Lynn, Mass.; and Hugh Redmond, Yonkers, N.Y. The monthly delivery came about as the result of negotia- tions between the two Red Cross societies. The British Red Cross in Hang Kong has cooperated closely in the under- taking also. How much the service is cherished by the Americans is reflected in a letter from B i s h o p Walsh's brher, Fa- ther John F. Welsh, Chester- field, Me., to Robert C. Lewis, American Red Cross vice pres- ident. He wrote, "I take this op- portunity to again thank you and the entire personnel of our American National Red Cross for the tremendous help and encouragement you have brought to James and to cur entire family. Words fail ut- terly to express the deep grati- tude in our hearts for your gracious and generous h el p through the years." Besides delivering some 2,000 family and Red Cross parcels, in the past decade, the Ameri- can Red Cross has obtained permission from the Chinese Red Cross for relatives to visit some of theprisoners and has assisted them with transporta- tion and other services. Thus, Mrs. Mary Downey has made visits have verified that the prisoners have received their parcels. A similar service is being provided for American military personnel and civilians held prisoners in North and South Vietnam. Arrangements be- tween the International Com- mittee of the Red Cross and the Red Cross society of North Vietnam has made possible mail delivery to the Americans. In March, the ICRC announced that the Viet Cong authorities in South Vietnam had accepted delivery of letters end parcels for captured Americans. The neighboring Cambodian Red Cross served as intermediary for the transfer of the mail.
