The regime of Marxist Premier Fidel Castro took over the cemetery in August, 1961. The Havana broadcast said the cemetery was not the private property of the Church, but public prop- erty because it constituted a public service. CONVERT CLERGYMEN AIDEDmLondon, July 10 (NC)The Converts' Air Society in Britain last year spent $98,560 helping some 400 'convert clergy- men, its annual meethag was told here. The money went in grants and assistance to clergymen, many of them married and with fam- ilies, who gave up their livelihood to Join the Church. The society helped pay for completing the education of their children and in some cases for finding housing. William Cardinal Godfrey, Archbishop of West- minster, who attended the meeting read a message of congratulations from His Holiness Pope John XXIII. FILIPINO ATTACKS TWISTDavao City, The PhiJippines, July 12 (NC)An anti-Twist ordinance to prevent further twisting of our moral values" at public dances, school events and night clubs has been proposed by city council member Artemio Loyola. He suggests 30-flay jail sentences or $70 fines for violators, and the revocation of permits of or- chestras that play Twist music. In Manila, Catholic Action has appealed to a TV station to drop student dance sessions that incorp- orate suggestive Twist numbers. , 4r , FIND HOMES IN U,S.Soul, Korea, July 10 (NC) w Catholic Relief Services-National Catholic Welfare Conference has found new homes in the U.S. for four Korean orphans.

A widower of several years, Father Lorente of- fered his first Mass at the Monastery of San Jose here, where he married over a generation ago. Father Lorente wrote for the Catholic dailies E1 Debate and Ya under the pseudonym of "Meteor." APPEAL FOR SPIRIT OF PEACEmParts, July 11 (NC)The Cardinals of France have urged all Frenchmen to "bury their quarrels in order to devote all their energies to the service of the human person, of social justice and of the emerging nations." The appeal was issued at the conclusion of a meeting here of the permanent committee of the six Cardinals of France The Cardinals also emphasized that not every group or publication bearing the name of "Chris- tian" Or "Catholic" has the right or the mandate to speak for the Heirarchy. They had been expected to discuss, at their meet- ing, the question of clerical dress. But no statement on the subject was immediately forthcoming. Most priests in France wear the soutane in the streets. "k "k STUDENTS BUILD CHURCH m Copenhagen, July 10 (NC)--A church built in the heart of the Jut- land peninsula by vacationing Danish, German and Swiss students has been blessed by Bishop Johannes Theodor Suhr, O.S.B., of Copenhagen. Some 3,000 Catholics from Jutland and the ad- jacent island of Fyn were present for the dedication. The modern btiilding, designed by Swiss architect Markus Furer, is located near the ruins of the medie- val Cistercian abbey of eel. It will be the focal point of the traditional pilgrimages to eel, which at- tract thousands of Catholics every year, and where the youth movement conducts summer schools. .wmbe, Pontiff t i Great Picnic Sisters' lives should be lives of prayer, example and the : '' ' the letter was based on these apostolate.

IRldllkllidl MA. 2.S033 have made significant con- tributions in the field o natural science throughout history.) As has happened be- fore with genius, there were few early signs of outstanding ability or world. shaking affinity between Louis Pasteur and chemistry. His "baccalaureates sciences," in 1842 had "mediocre" in chem- istry, attached to the diploma. But the dominant note in this young man's life had already been sounded, the pure simple tone of hard work. Hard work and an indomi- table will were the constant companions of Louis Pasteur, and because of this the world is an eminently healthier place to live, Pasteur was born in 1822 tn France, the son of a tan. her. He grew up in somewhat delicate health, but followed his studies from primary and secondary schools, through the Quartier Latin of Paris, the Royal College of Besan- con ("bachelier es lettres-- 1840) and the Ecole Normale. It was at this last school in 1843, under the lectures of J. B. Dumas that he received his first incentive to pursue the serious study of chemistry. However, even with Pasteur, ). sition of the exact microbiologi- cal phenomena causing fermen- tation. This and his previous discovery of the optic proper- ties of racemic acid earned for him the ribbon of the Legion of Honor His further proof that the micro-organisms the t caused fermentation and the souring of milk were present in the atmosphere and not necessarily in the liquid, gave' him the prominence of the lead- ing chemist of his day. southern France. He was able to save the silk industry for France and every other silk-producing country. By 1873 he became a mem- ber of the French Academy, and in 1874 he received a life pension from the National As- sembly. Further Discoveries In 1880 an epidemic of chick- en cholera had destroyed 10 per cent of the flocks of France. He isolated this germ, Lord Lister saw the practical application of these discoveries in surgery. By using carbolic acid to exclude atmospheric germs he was able to prevent putrefaction in compound frac- tures. Pasteur continued to receive more accolades both in France and abroad. It is a certain mark of the man's character that these many honors were of little concern to him per- sonally and he diligently par- perfected a vaccination, and rendered the poultry immune to the illness. He next turned his attention to the dread anthrax and fur- ther perfected the technique of vaccination. As to the money values of these discoveries, which had brought Pasteur to world fame, T. H. Huxley ex- pressed the opinion that it was sufficient to cover the whole cost of the war indemnity paid by France to Germany in 1870. causes of hydrophobia. His work was capped with success when he was able to obtain a weakened form of the bacillus and successfully inject it by inoculation. The experiment was such a success that by No- vember 1888 the Institut Pas- teur was founded and mortality from this tragic infection had" been reduced to less than one per cent. How does a grateful human- ity.repay the genius of such a man? The fact that our milk will forever be pure, that our children can be vaccinated and inoculated against any number of diseases that were once fa- tal, that we are on familiar terms with the infinitely small (as he called his microscopic world) all add to a debt that can never be paid by man alone. Died In Humility To the end of his life, rich in honors and fame, he work- ed hard and in humility. Pas- teur constantly referred to the will of God, a simple man, a devout Catholic. He passed quietly away near St. Cloud on Sept. 28, 1895. The lessons here are self-evident. The attribute of human genius transcends any intrinsic ability of man of and by himself. Pas- teur knew this. Council To Be Working Group i By Monsignor Tucek VATICAN CITY, July 5 (NC)  The coming council will be a working assembly requiring most of its participants to fol- low n probable seven-hour day, five-day week schedule. The present physical and financial arrangements for the c o u n c i I are the work of the Technical-Organizational Com- mission and the Administrative Secretariat. But after the initial solem- nities are completed, the de. termination of the daily work- ing schedule will depend in great part upon the current studies of the Subeommission for Regulations. ..... .lust what the Subeommls- alan for Regulations will propose or what changes the council Fathers may make cannot be known until the council is under way. But, after all is said and done, they may be expected to return to what is already a proven schedule: namely, that which was followed by the Central Preparatory Commis- sion. This is a sound assumption. First of all, the Central Pre- paratory Commission was, on a smaller scale, analagous in the nature of its work and in its membership to what the council assembly w i 11 be. Secondly, the amount of ma- terial to be pondered within the time limits which bind every bishop of a modern dio- cese will not allow a more hisurely schedule. This was the working sched- ule of the Central Preparatory Commission, All assembled tn the meet. tag hall at 9:IS a.m. A bell sounded at 9:30 calling the meeting to order.

At II:30 work was resumed and continued until 1:30 p.m. Those who were assigned to s p e c i a 1 subcommissions re- turned in the afternoon at 4:30 p.m. and worked until 7:00. were subcommissins in the First Vatican Council. These subcommissions probably will follow the same structure as the preparatory commissions which have submitted ma- terial for the council's agen- da. At the beginiaing, the cen- tral commission worked only five days a week with Thurs- days and Sundays off. Later, when the pressure of work re- quired it, they met six days a week with only Sunday off. At this time also they met both morning and evening: from 9:30 until 1:30, and from 5:00 until 7:00. T h r e will certainly be subcommlssions in the cam. ing council, just as there The subcommissions would be: on theology, on bishops and the government of dio- ceses, on the discipline of cler- gy and faithful, on sacraments, on the liturgy, on studies and seminaries, on Oriental church- es, on missions, on the lay apostolate, on Christian unity and on communications media. These subcommissions may be expected to meet in the afternoon to discuss and pro- Sisters To Creater women Religious with the oil of Divine Master may never be the lamps of the wise virgins in saddened by t h a t elegance the Biblical parable, saying which could even have a Reg. that through it they will be "al- ative influence on the interior ways ready for everything: life of persons consecrated to God, When they live in an en- that this should not mean the suppression of the free devel- opment of God-given gifts. He counselled the superiors: "Demand a generous obedience to the rules, but also be under- standing of your fellow Sisters. Favor the development of na- tural aptitudes in each one of them. The office of superiors is to make obedience sweet and not to obtain only an exterior respect, still less to impose un- bearable burdens." The apostolate of the sister- hood, the Pope declared, must be dedicated to the saving mis- sion of the Redeemer. He em- phasized the truth of this not only for those in the active life but also for those in the con- templative life, He said: "The Church ex- pects a lot from those who live in the silence of the clois- ter, and particularly from there. They, like Moses, have their arms raised in prayer, conscious that in this prayer- ful attitude one obtains vie- tOry . . . "You may not be alien to any disaster, to any mourning or calamity. Let no scientific dis- covery, cultural convention, so- cial or political assembly lead you to think 'These are things that do not concern us'. May the Militant Church feel that you are present wherever your spiritual contribution is needed for the good of souls as well as for real human progress and for universal peace." glory and ignominy, health and sickness, the pursuit of labor and death." The Pope traced the "life and example of women Religious through their vows of poverty, chastity and obedience." In poverty, he said, they would be following the example of Christ who was born in a stable, was homeless in His public life and died naked on the Cross. In this respect, he referred to the temptation to "look for small comforts, the satisfaction of food or the use of goods." He added: "The legitimate need for modernization could e x c e e d limits in ostentation of con- struction and of furnishings . . Understand Us, beloved daughters, We do not mean that that which is necessary for physical health and for wise and fitting recreation is in con- trast with the vow of poverty.

He urged that the Sisters practice chastity "to prove to all that chastity is not only a ,possible virtue but a social virtue." "May your example show that the heart has not shut it- self up in sterile egoism, but that it has chosen the condi- tion which is necessary for it to open itself solicitously to its neighbor. "For this purpose we urge you to cultivate the rules of good manners without giving ear to anyotae who would wish to introduce into your life a conduct less befitting the thoughtfulness and reserve to which you are bound. "In the works of the aposto. late reject the theory of those who would speak less or not at all of modesty and decency so as to introduce into the meth- ods of education cr/ter/a and tendencies which m'e in con- trast with the teachings of the Sacred Books and of Catholic tradition." The practice of obedience, the Pope said, involves a "constant sacrifice of your ego . . . an annihilation of serf which can cost much," But he counselled superiors pare their special material for the plenary assemblies in the morning. Apart from the number of hours and the number of days that the council Fathers might meet, the Subcommis- alan for Regulations will also establish rules of procedure. Whatever else one might attempt to anticipate in re- gard to these rules, one fact can be stated unequivocally: there will be free discussions. The freedom of discussions will without doubt be limited by the rules of good order, as they must be where almost 3,000 council Fathers are in. valved, but they will be free. Sanctity mighty God and to implore of Him a real renewal of the Christian spirit, which is one of the principal objectives of the council." Urges Participation Pope John then urged Catho- lics to participate in both ex- terior and interior penance. Interior penance, he said, comes first and consists of re. morse and purification of sin, that is of a good confession and the reception of Holy Com- munion, which should be done during the novena. Following the sincere repent- ance of sins, the encyclical continued, exterior penance is worship of God, discipline and the missionary apostolate." Appealed To All Pope John made his appeal to all Catholics, but es to all priests, members of ligious orders and to the sick and suffering. May all these, he said "raise .prayers and practice penance to obtain from God for His Church that abundance of light and supernatural assistance which it will especially at this time . . .
