But there was no cause for surprise. The Rev. Clay Ror- dam Bonnevie, 5L a former minister in the Lutheran State Church, has been carrying 0n pastoral duties here since 1960 when he was ordained a Cath- olic priest. He is married and father of a 21-year-old daugh- ter, Father Bonnevle's married status does not seem unusual to Danes, who are used to mar- ried clergymen in their own Church. He lives in a modern apartment building about a block from the church. Visitors there feel they are stepping into a familiar Protestant rec- tory where the minister's wife is u s u a I 1 y busy organizing classes, caring for parishioners and lending support to her hus- band. There are now about a dozen former Lutheran min- isters who are married Cath- olic priests in Germany. Fa- ther Bonnevie isthe only one in Denmark, and his presence here has had a salutary ef- fect on Catholic-Protestant relations. /nterviewed at his home, he told how he deelded to enter the Catholic Church after 12 years as a Lutheran pastor "My ancestors had been Lu- theran ministers for 400 years," he said. "Even as a boy I was determined to carry on with the tradition. When I was 23 I at- tended a Catholic Mass in  Sacred Heart church in Copen- hagen. The consecration made a deep impression on me, espe. cially since I had always held the Catholic view of Christ's p r e s e n c e in the Sacrament, while the Lutheran explanation confused me. Church Holds 'Tropic' Obscene SPRINGFIELD, I11. (NC)- The Illinois Supreme Court has ruled that the novel "Tropic of Cancer" is obscene and re- moved an injunction barring police from halting its sale or distribution. The court said June 18 that the book by Henry Miller contains "the most filthy and obscene language imagi n - able." The ruling reversed a 1962 de- cision by Superior Court in Chicago that the book is not obscene. In Chicago attorney Elmer Gertz, representing the novel's publisher, Grove Press, said the decision would be appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court. - ustice Harry B. Hershey m,,Re the opinion for the unanimous state high court. He said the book's "preoe- cupation with lewd and las- civious sex" is so great as to obscure for the average reader "any philosophic theme or portio n of the book with literary inert." He also rejected the publish- er's argument that the novel is intended "primarily for the intellectually sophisticated," saying ths contention is ,fatal- ly inconsistent" with the fact that the book was being:: sold widely in a 95 cent paperback edition in drug stores, train stations and newsstands through- out Chicago. Indians Take Vows In Germany STUTTGART, Germany (NC) --Eleven young men from India took vows as Missionary Sons of the Immaculate Heart of Mary (Claretians) at the congregation's nearby noviti- ate.

A MARRIED PRIEST, FATHER OLAV RORDAM BONNEVIE, AND HIS FAMILY "After my ordination as a minister, I was assistant for one year and then pastor for 12 years in Hellevad-Orum in northern Jutland. I was an ac- tive participant in the high church movement in Denmark, but I gradually became aware I could not forever justify my Catholic conviction with the Lutheran viewpoint. I then de- eided to become a Catholic." Father Bonnevie became a Catholic in 1945, after a trip to England. His wife and daugh- ter followed him into the Church two years later. In 1953 he received permission from Pope Plus XII to begin studies Danish Catholics to the Holy for the priesthood.

Spokane and Tacoma first in catholic supplies Washington Owned end Operated Stores B NEW YORK (NC)--About 2,000 questions a day, a ,quarter of them in foreign languages, are fielded by 18 young hostesses in the Vatican Pavilion at the New York World's Fair. The hostesses were chosen out of 2,000 who ap- plied for the jobs. One of the deciding factors was language. Nearly all of the hostesses are multi-lingual and handle questions in Spanish, German, French--even Yiddish. Besides being up on their languages, all of the young ladies went through a training period to learn about the background of the exhibits at the pavilion, Irving Stone's book "The Agony and the Ecstacy," a biography of Michelangelo, was required reading, since the famed Renaissance artist's marble Pieta is a featured attraction at the pavilion. The hostesses are the charges of Marie Mccormaek, a one-time concert artist who dropped her singing career to be- come recreation director for the American Red Cross, and later program director for the American Theater Wing. She said the pavilion tried to hire girls who would he more con- cerned with working for the Church than with making money. The. hostesses are dressed in identical princess-line dresses of magenta and pink wool mohair, designed by Margarita and Jose de Lima. The modest V-necklines of the dresses are aug- mented by a gold chain and brooch inspired by the papal coat of arms. mnnuunmnmmnun,,ununnnnummmnnnumnnnmnl n IF YOU | 0pc ............
