CITES MOTTO OF PARIS--Vatican City, July 18 (NC)HLs Holiness Pope John XXIII has suggested that the motto of the city of Paris  "Fluctuat nec mergitur" (it is battered by storms but does not sink) mmight well be that of all nations. In an audience granted July 8 to a French pil- grimage from the city of'Metz, Pope John said in French that the motto can be considered the symbol of all nations, i: "Each nation canbe likened to a ship," he said, "sometimes battered, it is true, by storms. But Provi- dence sustains and guides the fragile barque and it does not founder."

MILLION CHILDREN AT PAPAL CAMPS m Rome, July 19 (NC) -- More than one million Italian children are having summer vacations at the sea- shore or in the mountains in camps operated by the Pontifical Relief Organization (PEA). Some 12,000 camp directors, doctors, priests and nuns staff the PeA summer camps which offer healthful vacations to children of working class fam- ilies. In addition to the general summer camps, PeA also operates specialized camps with trained per- sonnel to care for campers suffering from heart problems, polio and glandular diseases. This year the family camps have been opened on the island of Sardinia, off the coast of Italy, and over 1,000 persons came as guests by the beginning of July. OUTNUMBER PROTESTANTS FOR F I R S T TIME---Ottawa, Ont., July 18 (NC)--Canada's Catho- lic population was recorded at 8,532,479 in the 1961 census made public here by the Dominion Bureau of Statistics. For the first time in the nation's history the country's Catholics outnumbered the Protestants, ac- cording to the bureau figures. The total membership of the country's six large Protestant bodies, plus the Greek Orthodox Catholics, was reported at 8,531,574.

OFFERS LAND FOR HOUSING  Jolo, The Philippines, July 18 (NC)--The Vicar Apostolic of this overwhelmingly Moslem region has offered land for a low-cost housing project. This gesture by American-born Bishop Francis J. MeSorley, O.M.I., is designed to help:city officials ac- hieve their long-cherished project of providing ade- quate shelter for the poor. It complements an offer by a private banking firm to build the houses provided land is made available. The concrete-base houses will cost 2,600 pesos, or $676 each at the current rate of exchange. They can be bought over a period of 15 years at a monthly rate of 19 pesos. The average income of Jolo's poor is about 150 pesos monthly. * * "k * : PLAN PARISH ON 1964 OLYMPIC SITE.- Makomanat, Japan, July 16 (NC)--The Maryknoll Fathers are opening a parish here:-:.the planned site of,. e 1964 Winter Olympics.

There is no way to estimate the number of lives saved because of prompt action. This immediacy of response is due primarily to the work of Guglielmo Mar- coni, Irish-ltalian father of wireless telegraphy. Marconi, the son of an Irish mother and Italian father, must have combined much of the best of both peoples. He was born in Bologna, Italy, April 25, 1874. Even as a child he evinced an intense interest in physical and electric science and was an experimental "tinker." He was educated privately at Bologna, Florence, and Leghorn, and attended the University of Bologna. He be- came further convinced that his life was in the field of elec- tricity and communications. Early Experimentation By 1895 he had an idea firmly rooted in his mind. It turned out to be a good one. He was convinced that a system of telegraphy through space could be provided by means of elec- tromagnetic waves. The exist- ence of such things had been p r o v e n mathematically by Clerk-Maxwell in 1864 and later investigated experimentally by Heinrich, Hertz, Oliver, Lodge, Righi, and some others. However, Marconi was the first to devise the practical Heads See MSGR. RAYMOND G.

Ken. nedy of Tacoma was elected to the board of directors of the Catholic Daughters of America at their 29th biennial cenven. tion held here. Miss Margaret Buckley of Chevy Chase, Md., was re- elected supreme regent. At the convention delegates : voted a gift of $50,000 for as- sistance to the Church in Latin America to be dispensed through Richard Cardinal Cush- ing, Archbishop of Boston. An- other gift of $10,000 was voted for Pope John XXIII for his ' use. Grants of $10,000 each were approved, one for a scholar- ship to encourage more quail- " fled laymen to work for the i Catholie press; one to go to the Catholic Church Exten- sion Society and the fourth to go to the Catholic Relief Services of the National Cath- olic Welfare Conference. Among resolutions adopted, members were called upon to be vigilant, les the recent Su- preme Court decision concern- ing State-approved prayer in New York public schools, be used beyond its clear meaning to discourage all religious prac- tice in connection with govern- ment and the operation of gov- ernment projects. Manila Port Sefs Up Censor Board MANILA (NC)--An increase in objectionable literature and films coming into this country in recent months, particularly from Hong Kong, has led to the establishment of a censor board in the Port of Manila. The leader in this effort is act- ing customs collector Teotimo A. Rein, who is also president of, the Manila Catholic Action organization. cess was transmission the distance across the garden. He next moved to his father's country home and further work brought added success. He could transmit nearly two miles. The young man knew his idea was sound and that it would need only more pol- ishing and refinement to add new dimensions to man's ability to communicate. He offered his remarkable dis- covery to the Italian govern- ment and was turned down cold. Perhaps they felt they had forever missed the boat with was created at Spezia and communications were establish- ed with Italian warships up to a distance of 12 miles. Further tests were demonstrated before the Italian king, King Humbert and his Queen, Margherita. Commercial Companies Founded The time was obviously ripe for the establishment of utili- tarian and useful application of this electronic child of Mar- coni. The first commercial company established was in England at the turn of the cen- tury, for commercial applica- l II Columbus. But Marconi turned to England and in 1892 had taken out his first patent in that country. It was the first ever issued for telegraphy based on use of electric waves. Distance Added To Reception That same year he demon- strated his invention before of- ficials of the British Post Of- fice and representatives of other British departments. Re- suits first of two, then four, and then nine miles were ob- tained. It was now obvious to I I tion of the Marconi wireless in all countries except ltaly. All during this time Mar- coni was refining his instru. ments and increasing the ac- ceptable distance of trans- mission and reception. On De- cember 12, 1901, he succeeded. on his first attempt, in trans- mitting and receiving signals across the Atlantic from Poldhu, Cornwall to St. John's, Newfoundland. The Marconi Wireless Telegraph Company, Limited, was in business. But the inventive genius could not rest, as PREPARATION graphic messages had been sent from England to Australia (Sept. 22, 1918). During 1916 he did much important work on the shorter waves that proved more amenable to control. The Man Of Peace Such were the works of Mar- coni the scientist and inventor. There is another side, not as well known perhaps, of Mar- coni, the man of peace. His sincere and intense interest in the cause of peace maae him the Italian plenipotentiary dele- gate to the Peace Conference in Paris, 1919. He signed the treaties with Austria and Bel- gium. He attended, in the same capacity: the meetings of the commssmn on mandates held in Paris and in London. The Man Of Honors Marconi's honors include the Nobel Prize for Physics, 1909, the Albert Medal of the Royal Society of Arts, and the Frank- lin and John Fitz Medals in the United States. Further than all of these he was a member of the Italian Senate, nominated by the King himself, and cer- tainly is to be reckoned as one of the fathers of the Age of Electronics. Without this Catholic man of science there would have been no radio and no television, at least as early as it did come. We cannot blame Marconi for the uses that have been put to his children. No matter how many idiot productions blare from the face of television, we are sure Marconi rests secure in the certitude of his own knowledge. He only gave. WAS THOROUGH: Proposed Agenda By Msgr. James I. Tucek VATICAN CITY, July 18 (N.C.) -- A blueprint of what the Second Vati- can Council will do is contaixmd in 119 book- lets now being sent to the bishops of the world. By a conservative estimate these booklets with their 2,060 pages represent a highly con- centrated distillation of the work of over 1,000 men who, in three years of preparatory work for the council, put in more than 20,000 man-hours of effort. These booklets represent the "schemes" or the projects which were submitted to the Central Preparatory Commis- sion by the 10 preparatory com- missions and the two prepara- tory secretariats. After the Central Commission reviewed them and they were given the approval of His Holiness Pope John XXIII, they became the agenda for the forthcoming council. When the Central Commis- sion terminated its work June 20, 1962, it had examined and decided upon aU the work of the preparatory commissions and secretariats. Some of the projects were discarded; others were combined; all were fur- ther condensed. For example, one prepara- tory body began with 2,000 pages as the total result of the work of its members. Before this was submitted to the Cen- tral Commission, the material was reduced to 600 pages. By the time it was prepared to be sent to the bishops, it was further reduced to a final 50 pages. By a process of study, elimination, amendment and condensation, t h e Central Commission ended with 67 projects contained within the 119 booklets. There were sometimes many booklets to a single project. The projects submitted by the commissions and secre- tariats were cataloged in the following manner: Theological Commission-- six projects for constitutions con- tained in 23 booklets on: the fonts of revelation, the moral order, the deposit of faith, chasity and the family, the Church, and Mary the Mother of God and men. Commission on Bishops and Government of Dioceses -- six projects contained in Din e booklets on: the care of souls, territorial limits of dioceses, episcopal conferences, rela- tions between bishops and pas- tors, relations between bishops and the Church's central ad- ministration, and on auxiliary bishops and coadjutors. Commission on the Disci- pline of the Clergy and Chris- tian People.-17 projects for de- crees contained in 17 booklets on: the distribution of clergy, sanctity of the clergy, clerical garb, tonsure, provision for parishes, duties of pastors, ec- clesiastical offices ecclesiasti- cal benefices, the historical patrimony of the Church, the artistic patrimony of the Church, the care of souls, the recepts of the Church, cats- Vatican Sent To Council Fathers ST. ATHANASIUS, Bish- op of Alexandria who died in 373, was the most re- nowned member of the first ecumenical council held at Nicer in 325. Athanasius was the most uncompromis- ing opponent of 'the Arian heresy. The Nicene Creed condemned Arius and af- firmed in unequivocal terms the Divinity of Christ. This statue of St. Athanasius is located at the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C.(NC Photo) chism, associations of the faith- ful, collections at Mass, pious donations, and the priestly or- dination of converted non- Catholic ministers. Commission on Religious -- one project for a constitution on the states of perfection, di- vided into many parts and con- tained in 11 booklets. Commission on Sacraments-- nine projects for nine decrees contained in nine booklets on: Holy Orders, Confirmation, Pen- ance, preparation for Matri- mony, the form of the celebra- tion of Matrimony, impedi- ments to Matrimony, the con- sent of the spouses, trials of Matrimonial cases, and mixed marriages. Commission on Liturgy--one project for a constitution, di- vided into eight chapters and 'contained in five booklets. Commission on Studies and Seminaries--three projects for Council Bishops decrees contained in six book- lets, and two projects for con- stitutions contained in another six booklets on: ecclesiastical vocations, obedience to the teaching authority of the Church, academic s t u d i e s, Catholic schools, and the for- mation of seminarians. (A constitution is generally a statement of position on a given questions. A decree is generally an ordinance which, coming from a council, has universal binding force.) Commission of Eastern Churches--projects for 11 de- crees contained in 11 booklets on: sacraments, rites, precepts, patriarchs, relations in sacred matters, the common tongue, faculties of bishops, catechism, the celebration of Easter, the Divine Office, and the unity of the Church. Commission on the Missions --projects for seven decrees contained in seven booklets on: the life of the missions, discipline of the clergy, Re- ligious missionaries, liturgy, the discipline of Christians, s t u d i e s in seminaries, and missionary cooperation. Commission on the Aposto- late of the Laity--one project divided into three parts and contained in four booklets on: general notions on the lay apostolate, religious activity, charitable activity, and social activity. Secretariat on Communica. tions Media--one project in two parts and divided into several c h a p t e r s, contained in, six booklets on press, motion pic- tures, radio, television and other communications media Secretariat f o r Promoting Christian Unity -- projects for four decrees contained in four booklets on: Catholic ecumen- ism, the necessity of prayer for unity, the Word of God as a means of union, and religious freedom. In addition to the foregoing, the Subcommission on Inter- related Material presented a project on the relations be- tween bishops and Religious in their dioceses, from the com- bined studies of the Commis- sion on Religious. Other projects remain which were submitted by the Theological Commission, the Commission on Religious and the Commission on Semin. aries and Studies. These were taken under study by the Suhcommission for Amend- ments, to be made ready to send to the bishops in July. Their topics were not made known immediately. The record of the First Vati- can Council is worth noting here. There were four pre- paratory commissions: on the- ology, on ecclesiastical disci- pline, on religious orders, and on Eastern Churches and mis- sions. Parts of the projects of the first two commissions were considered by the council Fathers. The projects of the last two commissions never came up for debate. The majority of the projects which did come up for debate were radically changed. Of the 46 projects, for example, sub- mitted on ecclesiastical disci- pline, only four were discussed and none were aonroved. WASHINGTON, J u 1 y 18 (NC) Aleading American student of the Church's worship sees the Holy See's new de- cree on the administration of Baptism to adults as another sign that the Church "is an- xious to see to it that this is a public rite, not simply a priv- ate affair." The Rev. Frederick McManus declared that the Holy See is re-emphasizing the social na- ture of the sacrament and the "solemnity befitting it." Father McManus, professor of canon law at the Catholic University of America, is president of the National Liturgical Conference and a consulter to the Liturgi- cal Commission preparing for the Second Vatican Council. The new decree should set to rest fears that further con- cessions would not be granted for use of local languages in the Church's worship, the priest indicated. He explained that the decree specifies that the baptismal exorcisms can be read in the vernacular after they are read in Latin. This is the first time such a concession has been made outside of mis- sion territories, he told the N.C.W.C. News Service. "This is a tremendous and welcome breakthrough in the use of the mother tongues in Catholic public worship," he said. "For the first time the Holy See has taken this broad initiative for the whole Church, leaving the approval of transla- tions to the bishops of the dif- ferent countries. "In the United States, the dividing of the baptismal rite will be especially welcome, making it convenient to use the full service of adult bap- tism once again. "As a prospective convert has passed beyond the status of inquirer and is actually being instructed by Baptism, it is spiritually important that this progress should be accom- panied by the successive prayers and blessings of the Church. "As there is no mention that the Psalms and other introduc- tory prayers of adult Baptism must be in Latin, this is an en- tirely new vernacular conces- sion-in addition to the ver- nacular reading of the exor- cisms after the respective Latin texts--not found in the existing United States ritual." A thorough study of the text of the new Vatican decree shows that the decree does not permit the omission of the rite of anointing in conferring Con- firmation, F a t h e r McManus said here. An earlier report by the N.C.W.C. News Service had stated that the decree, issued by the Sacred Congregation of Rites and permitting Baptism to be given to adults in seven separate steps, allowed for the omission of the anointing rite in Baptism where its proper significance cannot be understood. The report added that the same holds for the rite of Confirmation. This raised the question whether the Holy See now wished to emphasize imposition of the bishop's hands as essen- tial to the sacrament of Con- firmation, even if the actual anointing were to be omitted in exceptional circumstances, Father McManus noted. However, the decree in fact insists upon the instruc- tion of converts in the "meaning of the anointings with sacred oils as found in the order of Baptism" pre- cisely "because the sacra- ment of Confirmation must be conferred hy the imposi- tion of the hand with the anointing with chrism on the forehead," Father McManus explained. Although the anointings at Baptism may now be omitted as a temporary measure in some areas, the rule of canon 780 of the Code of Canon Law still holds: "The sacrament of Confirmation must be confer- red by the imposition of the hand, with the anointing with chrism on the forehead, and by the words prescribed in the pontifical books approved by the Church." Choir Singers Respond The response for Na- tional Choir singers for Liturgical Week has been excellent, according to the Liturgical Week office.

The Beardsleys were married last September. He is a Navy chief warrant officer, who was a widower with 10 children at the time of the marriage. Mrs. Beardsley, a former Seattleite and graduate of Holy Names Academy, was the widow of a Navy flier with eight children. The baby will be baptized John .Joseph, Beardsley an- nounced. There are now 12 girls and 7 boys in the Beards- ley family, the oldest 17 years old. Townsend, Oregon City and Salem, Ore." Father said that although the majority of registrants were women, "there were a sur- prising number of men." There is still need for sing- ers, especially tenors and basses, and those able to per- form during the four-day meet, August 20-23 are asked to fill out the two coupons below and mail them to Liturgical Week offices. The Choir will sing at all Liturgical Week Masses as well as at the general sessions at 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. each of the four days.
