Pope To Receive Triple Tiara Fr. Treacy Named Coronet on Rites To New Church In Open Air Unity Commission Outside St. Peter's The Rev. William Treacy, assistant chancellor of the Archdiocese of Seattle snce September 30, 1948, as been appointed chairman of the Commission on Church Unity effective July 1, according to an an- nouncement made today by the Chancery office. In making the appointment, His Excellency, the Most Reverend Archbishop Connolly, explained that the purpose of the CommissLon "will be to work to- ward some acceptable form of Christian Unity, and toward better understanding among people of other t faiths." Commenting further on the Commission, Arch- bishop Connolly said: "The late Holy Father, Pope John XXIII, in March 1960, formed a Secretariat for Church Unity, under the directS.on of His Eminence Augustin Car- dinal Bea. The action of His Holiness in creating a Secretariat for Church Unity has had the effect of encouraging archbishops and bishops throughout the world to undertake studies on Christian Uni,ty in their Headlines and Deadlines: OPope Won't Compromise With Reds By George Kromer, Ph.D. The world's attention is directed to the choice of successor to the late Pope John XXIII. After the election of Pope Paul VI, miles of copy were written exploring every con- ceivable probability of what the new Holy Father might do. Conjectures were rampant concerning his "policy," and the use of the words "liberal," "progressive" and "political" in connection with his pontifi- cate left much to be desired in properly evaluating the papacy.

"Father Treacy comes to this new office with consider- able background in inter-faith projects. He has been Director of the Religious Advertising Program of the' Knights of Columbus in the State of Wash- ington since 1948, and has been in contact by mail with thous- ands of non-Catholics who have responded to the invitation con- tained in advertisements in local newspapers to request information r e g a rdin g the teachings and practices of the Catholic Church. "Since its inception in 11, Father Treacy has appeared on the weekly television pro. gram "Challenge," in which, besides himself, a Jewish rabbi and a Protestant minis- ter discuss various topics of a religious and sociological nature." The "Challenge" program is viewed by almost 100,0OO per- sons each week in Washington, Oregon and British Columbia, the majority of whom are non- Catholics, a survey discloses. Because of the general ,appeal of the program. Father Treacy has participated in many inter. faith projects with his fellow panelists. During August and September, Father Treacy will join Rabbi Raphael Levine, Dr. This was borne out in Pope Lynn Corson, two "Challenge" Paul's first address within 24 panelists, and some thirty other hours of his election. He said he would continue the Ecumeni- cal Council which was adjourn- ed last December and which was ended with the death of Pope John. He also laid great stress on the solution of social prob- lems and the issue of social stlce. This, too, should have en expected, because con- earn for the poor and under- privileged has always marked the Supreme Pontiffs of the Catholic Church. The press noted the absence of UY reference to Commu- nism in Pop Paul VI's Latin address over the Vatican radio Saturday. Any such reference on this occasion was not to be expected, and no conclusions should be drawn or significance given to the omission of the word Communism. That the Communists are concerned, if not downright worried, about the new Pope is plainly manifest.

News Service) WASHINGTON, June 27 -- A Catholic civil rights leader, one of nearly 30 who met with Presi- dent Kennedy and other top administration figures on the current racial crisis, summed up the meeting's tone in these words: "We are in a very impor- tant fight and we must exert ourselves to the utmost." This evaluation was given George K. Hunton, one of founders of the New York Catholic Interracial Council and currently a consultant to the council, after he and 28 other civil rights leaders met June 22 at the White House with the President, Vice Pres- ident Lyndon Johnson, a n d Atty. Gem Robert Kennedy. The nearly two-hour meet- ing was one of a series Pres. ident Kennedy has been hold- ing with national leaders to discuss the racial crisis and rally support for his civil rights program. It was held only hours before he was to leave on lis European visit. Hunton said the President in his remarks to the civil rights leaders "left an impression that the administration is do- ing everything it possibly can "to secure enactment of the whole package" of civil rights legislation it backs. The Presi- dent asked for help in getting his legislative program through Congress. The administration's civil rights package contains legis- lation designed to end racial discrimination in education, public aceomodations, employ- ment and voting. Hunton said there was an "air of hopefulness" during the White House meeting re- garding the chances for con- gressional action on the civil rights package. "The picture is brighter than it ever has been for civil rights legislation," he said. But, he added, all those at the meeting recognized that there is a "tough fight" ahead and room for "no complacency, no letup." Among the leaders attend- ing the meeting were the Rev. Martin Luther King, head of the Southern Christian Leader- ship Conference; editor Ralph McGill of Atlanta, Gad A. Philip Randolph, president of the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters; United Auto W o r k e r s president Walter Reuther; and Roy Wilkins, ex- ecutive director of the Nation- al Association for the Advance- ment of Colored People. Vice President Johnson and Atty. Gen. Kennedy also spoke during the two-hour gathering, as did several of the civil rights leaders, Hunton said.

News Service which it issues. He is at present managing editor of the Central California Register, newspaper of the Diocese of Monterey-Fresno in California, and president of the Catholic Press Association of the United States.

Hall succeeded to the office in 1932. Last May, at its 53rd na- tional convention in Miami, the C.P.A. gave Anderson its high- est annual award for outstand- ing contribution to the Catholic press in 1962.

CONNOLLY, D.D.,J.C,D., ARCHBISHOP OF SEATTLE HE WORLD at large and the Catho- lic world in particular have a new Pope. Seldom has there been such wide-spread interest evidenced in the selection of a new Supreme Pontiff, due, no doubt, to the lovable quoit.ties of mind and heart that marked the reign of the late Pope John XXIII. The news of the election to the Papacy of John the Baptist Cardinal Montana, Archbishop of Milan, who will rule Christ's Kingdom under the title of Pope Paul VI, has been received with a of unbounded happiness and enthuiasm. The newly elected Pope has given The Church many years of distinguish- ed service in many positions. His ca- reer has providentially prepared him for the high offi,ce he has assumed and for the burdensome responsibilities which he must face. For many years, calmly and with safety and assurance he was associated with the late Pope on the turbulent sea of confusion and Pius XII in the office of the Vatican conflict that marks our present day Secretariat of State. world.

For his coronation, Pope Paul ks using a gem, studded tiara dating back seven pontificates, and used for coronations ever since 1878 because of its relatively light weighttwo pounds. The Vatican owns other triple tiaras symbolizing the supreme papal authority. But the one now in use is the only one not imposing a real physical burden on its wearer. In the initial part of the coronation ceremony, the Pontifical Master of Ceremonies holds up before the Pope a reed with a handful of flax attached. He burns it. It flashes for a moment, then dies into smoke. The master of ceremonies chants: "Pater : sancta, sic transit gloria mundi." (Holy Father, thus :: passes the glory of the world).

Thankful To God: VATICAN, June 27 (NC)---The second ses- sion of the Second Vatican Council will open September 29, it was announced today by the Vatican. The date was set In rescript issued by Amiens Cardinal Cieognani, Papal Secretary of State. Before the death of Pope John XXIII ended work on the council, the second sea. sion had been scheduled to convene September 8. (N,C.W.C. NEWS SERVICE) Pope Paul VI was rOminent as a Cardinal applauding publicly Pope John's plan for an ecumenical council. As his successor, he has pledged that he will "continue with has ever celebrated in its 20 centuries of history," he said. "It will be the greatest for the" universality of its dimen, sions and its true interest to the entire world," he wrote. Since that initial support, the Cardinal was an active support- er of the council and of Pope John's "aggiornamento" -- the bringing Of the Church up to date. The new Pope's attitude to, ward the council was one of realism. He urged the Cath- olics of Milan in March, 12, not to regard the assembly as capable of producing an auto, matic remedy for all problems. He also said the council will not be radical or revolutionary in its decrees. In the council itself, the future Pope reportedly de, livered a powerful address along the same lines. During debate on the schema on the nature of the Church, Cardi- nal Montini made one of his few appearances as a speaker. Pope Paul's Home Town Decked Out Gaily By James C. O'Neill CONCESIO, Italy, June 26 (Radio NC) -- "We thank Providence which chose a son of our earth to Rule from the Chair of St. Peter." Store fronts, stables and even telephone poles in this small country village 60 miles east of Milan ant farmers, Pope Paul's fam- ily, the Montinis, were mod- erately well to do and well educated. The bond between the two families is that of a deep religious and family piety. Coneesio is actually a eel, hetinn of small hamlets which contain in all some 7,000 people. The s e e t i o n where the Pope was horn is the commercial center of the town where the Montana fam- ily had a three-story, L- shaped house which they used only in the summer. With the news of the elec- tion of Pope Paul, Mayor Ric- eardo Giustacchini of Concesio put a telephone call through to the mayor of Sotto il Monte to ask: 'What did you do when Pope John was elected?" Newspaper photographs of the new Pope, wreathed with leaves and tree boughs; the front pages of Italian news- papers -- indudine Rome's Communist daily, L'Unita -- and copies of the civic procla- mation written by Mayor Gius- tacchini w e r e plastered on walls all over town. :j carried this proud declaration shortly after the election of His Holiness Pope Paul VI, who was born here 65 years ago. The streets around the church where the Pope Was baptized were gay with red velvet hang- ings usually reserved for Cor- pus Christi processions and the feast of San Rocco, patron of Concesio. On the door of the church there is an announcement of a parish pilgrimage to Rome for Pope Paul's eoronation-- a four-day tour for 324 in- eluding room and board. Across from the church the movie house was showing for the first time "Gone with the Wind." Though similar in simplicity of life, Concesio is not compar- able to Sotto il Monte, birth- place of Pope John XXIII. Pope Paul was born here because it was September and it was thought better for the family to be out of the heat of the near- by city of Brescia, where the family lived most of the year. While the family of Pope John, the Roncallis, were peas- 3
