George A. Kelly, Doubleday & Company ONSIGNOR KELLY is well known for his wise and helpful books on Christian marriage -- "The Catholic Marriage Manual," and "The Catholic Family Handbook." These books are outstanding in the field because of the clarity and compass'ion of the writing. This new book is for young- Sters. Monsignor Kelly /eels, and rightly, that the early dating period is the time to start training for marriagE. High standard at this time will prevent many problems later. Monsignor Kelly 'mderstands teen-agers. He wants them to have fun, and to grow in ideas and experiences. No long-faced Jansenism for him! The point he makes is that all this is truly compatible with a good and pure Catholic life. He also gives teen-agers credit for intelligence. When he discusses a forbiddance he does so frankly, explaining the reasons for such prohibition. He also clarifies why some things, not sinful in them- selves such as smoking and drinking, should be taken slowly. The author uses examples from the teen.ager's world. When he says that going steady is like shopping at a store that shows only one dress, your clothes-conscious daughter will "dig" his mean- ing instantly. His secret lies in the fact that he doesn't talk down to the young. He likes them, and it shows. In a word, the book doesn't nag. To be a Catholic teen.ager isn't easy in this fast paced milieu, but these young people are bright and capable of lov- ing God greatly. Whether they do so or not depends to an enormous extent on whether or not they have had wise coun- ciling or picky exhortation. Give them this book. But first, read it yourself, so that the way will be open for discussion. Neither you nor your teeners will be sorry.- DOROTHY ECKHART SMITH. "MARY, MOTHER OF THE LORD," by Karl Rahner, Herder & Herder, $2.25 OTHING is so mis- understood by non- Catholics as our love and esteem of Mary, the Blessed Virgin. Hyperdulis is by no means adoration, but it is something in itself -- exclusive to Our Lady. As the Mother of God, the only human being preserved from original sin, she merits devotion over and above all the other saints. God loves her; can we do less? God honored her by waiting for her answer. How can we equal that? Many devotional works on Mary are completely spoiled by sentimental excess (hyper- droolia?) to the extent that they abscure Her greatness and her true lovliness. "Mary, Mother of the Lord" is as factual as the catechism, and has a beauty like the liturgy that does not cloy. It proves that Mary needs no emotionalism to evoke emo- tion. The book opens with a sum- mary of the Church's teaching about Mary, and then explains in detail the various aspects of her life and graces. There are chapters on the Immaculate Conception, her virginity, her sinlessness, and her Assumption, as well as her not yet defined role as Media. trix of all Graces. This would be an excellent book to give to non-Catholics who question Marian theol- ogy. It is based on Scripture itself, and the logical con- clusions to be drawn there- from. It is very explicit in show- ing the relationship of Mary to God, and is devoid of spurious superstitions. (I once read in a book that it was opined that Mary spent her time in pious attitudes while angels did the housework! ) We can never learn enough about the Mother of God, both for her own sake and because she leads directly to her Son. --D.E.S.

There is only one priest for every 2,400 Catholics in Rwanda and Burundi, one for every 2,200 in Nigeria and one for every 2,100 in Ghana. If space permitted, even more startling statistics could be given for the short- age of priests in Latin America. Now, what can we do about it? We know we are ordained for the Church and only for canonical and juridical reasons are assigned to a diocese or parish: "My parish is the world." Do we, as we ascend the altar, ever think of the faithful of Brazil or the faithless of China clinging to our chasubles? When we lift the Host, do we not lift up Christ in His Mystical Body, heavy with the gravitational drag of souls who know not Its mystery of love? You may not be able to go on the Mis- sions, but you can, nevertheless, make a small sacrifice every month to help educate a seminarian. One bishop from Africa in- formed us he could take only 15 out of 300 applicants for the seminary because he lacked the means. There is hardly a priest in any large diocese in the United States who could not sacrifice $250 a year to prolong his priesthood in another land. Our priesthood is eternal once we receive it, as the soul is immortal once breathed into a body. But mothers, after having gone through the labor of birth, continue their motherhood in their daughters. To us priests, also, it is given to immortalize our priesthood on earth to this appeal. Most of us have ears or tele- visions. In the Name of Christ Our High Priest, let us also have a priest whom we are supporting in the Missions. Send whatever sacrifices you can to The Society of St. Peter the Apostle for Native Clergy through The Society for the Propagation of the Faith. GOD LOVE YOU to A Mother for $5. "In thanksgiving for a new sister for her three older brothers." . . . to M. E. R. and Friends for $6. "In behalf of myself and several non.Catholic workers in our office. Use it to aid all of God's poor." . . to R.V. for $50. "I will be ordained this month, and I want to offer this sac. rifice to beg God's blessings on my priest- hood and to help educate seminarians in the Missions." . . . to E. K. for $50. "1 have received so many favors from God. Now I want to start returning them by helping The Society for the Propagation of the Faith." We are not only asking for your sacrifices, but for your prayers. Send your request and an offering of $2 for the Worldmission Rosary, and we will send you these multicolored beads blessed by Bishop Sheen. Each time you say the Worldmission Rosary you will remember to put aside a daily sacrifice for the Holy Father. Cut out this column, pin your sacrifices to It and mall it to Most Rev. Fulton J.

World Events Go On Despite Pope's Death (Continued from Page 1) controversial, figures of Con- gress Saturday was a distinct national deprivation. Rep. Francis Eugene Walter, Democrat of Pennsylvania, died of leukemia in Georgetown Uni- versity Hospital at the age of 69. Elected to the House of Rep- resentatives for the 16th time last November, he was one of the nation's foremost respected legislators and staunch patriots. His name was most promi- nently linked with that of the late Sen. Pat MeCarran be- cause he was co-author of the MeCarran-Walter Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952, which was enacted over a veto by President Harry Tru- man. Although a faithful supporter of the Democratic Party, he was the target of criticism and attack by the more liberal ele- ments principally due to his work as chairman of the House Committee on Un-American Ac- tivities. He did not want that post in the first place, but having as- assumed it he labored unwav- eringly in the interests of his country's security. Strong Convictions While one of President Ken- nedy's loyal backers, he dis- agreed with many of the Ad- ministration's policies on immi- gration, security and loyalty policies. He was an independent and conseravtive legislator, and frequently received surprising support from both sides of the aisle in the House. This was especially true in his recommendation for leg- islation concerning govern- ment security. It was he, too, who strengthened tha HCUA after he assumed the chair- manship in 1955. The effective achievements of his committee caused the left- ists and pro-Communists to wage unsuccessful campaigns to abolish it or to have him removed as chairman. The death early this year of Rep. Clyde Doyle, second rank- ing Democrat of the committee, means that Waiter's successor will be the next Democrat in SUNDAY, JUNE 9 7:30 a.m., Catholl Hour, KINO-Radlo (1090 kc.)

There are interviews with Bishop Coleman F. Carroll and a filmed insert shows the Florida City and St. Raphael's camps for unaccompanied refugee children operated by the Cath- olic Welfare Bureau. The Soviets Virtually de- manded a strict Communist veto. They insisted that all decisions of the three-nation commission must be unani. mous, just as all deci_ions of the impossible troika govern- ment of Souvanna Phouma must be unanimous. Prince Souphanouvong, dep- uty premier and leader of the Pathet Lao, has never cooper- ated with his government, but insisted on having everything his own way. Thus, there could be no unanimity of agreement unless the neutralist and the conseravtive factions wentalong with him. Red Strategy Last week-end the Pathet I.ao unleashed another fierce attack on Gem Kong Le's neu- tralist army on the Plaine des Jarres, which is only 10 miles from the Red China border. Typical of Red strategy Prince Souphanouvong began demanding "peace talks" and "correct execution of the Ge- neva accords" of 1962, which guaranteed the neutrality of Laos. At the same time, his Pathet Lao made no effort to live up to the terms of that agreement. Not only did their allies and mercenaries from North Viet- nam and Red China not leave the country, as stipulated by the Geneva Conference, but they did not even permit the International Control Commis- sion to inspect their lines. On the other hand, the U.S. removed all military personnel and aid by the November, 1962, deadline, and the neutralist and conservative factions permitted full inspection by the commis- sion. Yet Souphanouvong f o u n d fault with the commission for "serving the interests of one party," and accused the U.S. of interfering in the internal affairs of a neutral nation. Spoken like a real Commun- ist! Big Question As if this were not proof enough, an indication of the lay of the land was a statement this week by Red China's of- ficial Communist Party news- paper in Peiping which charged the U.S. with "aggression and intervention." The U.S. has no military personnel in Laos, although there are a few civilian me- chanics there to service some planes the U.S. gave the Lao- tian government, as approved by the Geneva conference. From all appearances, the U. S. has assumed a hands-off pol- icy, as there is not even any report of protests, much less vehement denunciation of the entire despicable proceedings.

We've read about the need for discipline in children's lives and would like to do some thinking and planning about it even before they arrive. Can you set some guidelines for our discussions? iscipline is the power whereby parents enforce authorKy. But it has a broader meaning! A disciple, as ha the Scripture, is a learner; his discipline is the demand made and satisfaction offered by his field of learning. For parents discipline should mean not simply punishment but also reward, both used to teach and guide the child until he becomes mature. Discipline should be an act of love which seeks the good of the chid or, sometimes, the good of the family. No mother would hesitate to punish a child playing with lighted matches. Better that he should be spanked than scarred by fire! The disciplinary act actually was an act of love: thinking, will- ing, and aeting for the good of the child. Punishment should not be an act of anger. If, against your command, you see Jimmy dart across the street, narrowly miss- ed by a truck, you (frightened and enraged) run down to punish him. You COULD do him far more harm than the truck! On the other hand, don't punish in "cold blood" saying: "I won't do anything now, but later this afternoon I'm going to kill you" Never discipline by prolonged disapproval, creating the im- pression that the child is forever rejected. Discipline must be balanced. Remember that a child almost has a "right" to a certain amount of noise, breakage and mis- chief. On the other hand, parents need not tolerate whining, insolence or tantrums. Discipline With Reason ell the child the connection between the punishment and the crime, if it isn't obvious. Let Jimmy know beforehand what he can expect to be disciplined for; let him know the type of punishment he can expect in certain situations. Don't constantly threaten but never act. Never promise a punishment you are not ready or willing to employ. Threats like 'Tll call the police!" can be effective for a short time with the naive young child, but after that, they are useless. In complex situations, the child ought to have a chance to defend himself, to present extenuating circumstances, to give his side. In simple situations direct aetion is usually best. For in- stance, an expensive lamp is broken in circumstances where no one BUT Jimmy could have done it. It is far better not to press for a signed confession before meting out punishment. Even when Jimmy is caught dead-to-rights and Dad de- mands, "Did you do that?" he will very likely say "NO!" Discipline Consistently on't let one parent assume the role of "Dread Disciplinarian" while the other is "Defender and Consoler." Seventy per- cent of the time, Morn will have to do the punishing because she is present. It should be only on rare occasions and in important matters that she should warn: "Wait till your father comes home!" Husband and wife should discuss their children's behavior and agree on the method and measure of discipline long before it is needed. The most common disciplinary methods are: n show of dis- approval, omitting signs of affection, suspension of rewards or privileges, and corporal punishment. The most successful discipline comes from a truly happy home. Parents who are unable to create an atmosphere o| enjoyment, fun, an humor soon find that a child eaRn0t be successfully disciplined without the strictest of measures. In order to make a child behave, one has to create a real difference between moods of approval and disapproval. When a parent's ordinary mood is easy and loving, the child feels deeply deprived when he incurs disapproval; something very real has been taken away. But with parents who do not give this pleasure, there is nothing changed when a child mis- behaves; the parent's disapproval means nothing.
