Local Registrants Are Lackin00 For Liturgy Week ......... ,. A lack of local registra- within commuting dis- cesan members fro will include the August 5:30 p.m. Monday, 12 Go d frey REV. JOSEPH BUCK Registration Chairman, Liturgical Week tion for Liturgical Week has been noted by Rev. Joseph Buck, chairman of information and registra- tion for the August 20-23 conference on the World's Fai.r grounds. "We have over 1,200 people registered which is far above any previ- ous Liturgical Week pro- registration total," Father said. "But we notice that few of the registrants are from the Archdiocese." Father attributed this to two causes: (1) resi- den t s of BellJ.ngham, Vancouver and other dis- tant cities are afraid they won't find housing; (2) Seattleites and t h o s e tance believe they can just "drop in" to the Lit- Week and not bother with pre-registra- tion. "The fact is," Father emphasized, "we will be hard-put to handle registrations on t h e opening day of the Week. We just don't have the space." Regis- tration desks will be in the foyer of the Arena. "In Oklahoma City last year over 2,000 people came without sending in applications." Father said. "We couldn't handle a crowd that size." Father urged Archdio- tent cities to send in their registrations and housing would be found as soon as possible. Father Buck urged those wishing to take part in the Week to clip the coupon on Page 2 of The Progress and enclose it, together with $3 a per- son or $5 a couple and mail it to the Liturgical Week office at 410 Ma- rion St., Seattle 4, Pro-registration w i 1 1 entitle each participant to a LRurgical Week badge which will admit the person through the World's Fair gates, a program booklet which issue of "America" fea- turing a special article on the liturgy and Seattle's Liturgical Week and will guarantee the holder ad- mission to all workshops during the four-day meet. Father Buck noted that many local registrants were those interested Ln singing in the National Choix and he urged more men to sign up for the choir. "Many men feel they can't because of their jobs," Father explained, "but actually the re- hearsals are on a week- end (August 18-19) and the Masses will be at noon on Tuesday and Wednesday and 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Many men could get away from their offices at those hours." Father said that al- though the choir will be used durhg the 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. sessions it will not be necessary for all men to be present if it would interfere with their work hours The Liturgical Week will open at 8 p. m. Aug- ust 20 with a welcome by the Most Reverend Archbishop Thomas A: Connolly. Tuesday's pro- gram will include a gen- eral session at 10 a. m. at Dieckmann, O. S. B., ed- itor of "Worship" will speak. Following n o o n Mass there will be after- noon sesions with anoth- er general session at 8 p. m. in the Arena. Wednesday and Thurs- day programs will be as on Monday with the Week concluding Thurs- day evening with the pontifical Mass celebrat- ed at 6 p. m. Ln the Arena by Archbishol Connolly. At the Thursday afternoon session the Spaeth Architectural A- ward and the Cardinal Lercaro medal will be given to the winning ar- chitectural designs. 1962 North American Liturgical Week Seattle August 20-23 VoI. 65--No. 30 Official Newspaper for the Archdiocese of Seattle Seaffle, Wash., Friday, July 27, 1962 ePafhef Lao Sentries Bar Priesf-Newsman By Father Patrick O'Connor Society of St. Columban VIENTIANE, Laos, July 23 (NC)--The coalition government was already one week old when a Pathet Lao (Communist) sentry barred me for the third time at the gateway of deputy premier Prince Soupha- nouvong.

The 55 children, ranging in age from 5 to 16, were relo- cated through the Catholic Charities of the Yakima Dio- cese. The Rev. Desmond Dillon, coordinator of the movement, said the children will stay in Yakima for six to eight months until they can be reunited with their parents who have not yet left Cuba. The children were escorted from Miami by Mrs. Kay Smith of Yakima and Mrs. Gloria LaFromboise of Sunnyside. Mrs. Smith is supervisor of the Catholic Family and Child Service in the diocese. Almost 20,000 Cuban refugees have been resettled through- out the United States in Latin America and Europe by Cath- olic Relief Services-National Catholic Welfare Conference. Stand On School Aid LOS ANGELES, J u 1 y 23 (N.C.)The National Education Association's stand against any gov- ernment aid to church- related schools is "a declara- tion in favor of discrimination in its b61dest form," James F r a n c i s Cardinal McIntyre charged here. The Cardinal-Archbishop of Los Angeles made his charge in addressing a quarterly meet- ing of the St. Vincent de Paul Society. He discussed a reso- lution adopted by NEA July 6 at the association's meeting in Denver in which it reaffirmed that "Congress should give priority to appropriating sub- stantial Federal funds to be used by the states only for the support of tax-supported public elementary and s e c o n d a r y schools." Cardinal Mclntyre com- mented: "The issue, there- fore is discrimination and not education." "The objective of such pro- ponents of Federal aid now will be discrimination against over six million children," he said. "This discrimination is pri- marily because of religion, since most private schools at- tended by these children are sponsored by religious groups," he added. Cardinal McIntyre warned that although it appears that no major Federal aid legisla- tion will be passed at this ses- sion of Congress, forces favor- ing Federal aid are very ag- gressive. Heretofore, the C a r d i n a l noted, the NEA had tolerated participation by private educa- tion in Federal benefits to col- leges and universities. Now the NEA has declared itself in favor of Federal aid on all levels--but only for stu- dents attending schools sup- ported by public funds. Cardinal McIntyre recom- mended the Delaney Junior GI bill which is still awaiting ac- tion by the House Committee on Labor and Edfication. The Delaney bill would pro- Vide Federal grants of $20 a year for all school children. The grants would go directly to parents who chose to send their children to parochial and other private schools. The grant for children who attend public schools would go di- rectly to the local public school agency. The Delaney bill, said the Cardinal, avoids discrimina- tion. It is constitutional and distributes benefits equally to all ehildren, he added. Support of t h i s measure should be promoted, he said, so it will not be overlooked or discarded in the next session of Congress Record Espionage Reported By J. J. Gilbert WASHINGTON, July 23--Communist spying ac- tivities are at an all time high. This revelation comes at a time when Khrush- chev professes to want peace with the United States and publicly accuses this country of ill will. In testimony before a Congressional committee given last January but just now made public, J. Edgar Hoover, director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, said: "For over three decades the Soviet Union has directed a vicious, concerted espionage attack against the United States. This activity continues unabated and, in fact, throughout the history of the world, espionage has never been emphasized to the extent and with the fanatical dedication now being practiced by Soviet-bloc countries." No phase of American activity has been immune to Soviet- bloc intelligence attempts," Hoover told the Congressmen. Their "targets have been all-encompassing," he added, and have in- cluded aerial photographs, maps and charts of our major cities, and technical and unclassified information concerning nuclear weapons, planes, ships and submarines. They have had "prime interest" in military base, missile sites and radar installations, he added. At almost the same time this information was made public here, Khrushchev was telling 12 U. S. secular newspaper editors visiting the Kremlin that he didn't want to boast, but the Soviet Union has a global rocket that cannot be destroyed by any anti- rocket device, and also has an anti-missile missile that "can hit a fly in space." The U. S. newsmen were asked to hold up reports on their interview until an official transcript could be released. ]'he trans- script was released three days later, and the Americans were quick to note it varied in a number of ways from the actual interview. The transcript toned down Khrushchev's language and altered the form of questions in some cases. This was seen as an effort to withhold information from the Russian people. The transcript omitted part of a question whether the Russian people knew the Soviet Union had con- ducted 40 nuclear tests in the atmosphere last fall. While the revised transcript demonstrated the Red regime's ability- to feed the Russian people only what it wants them to know, one of Khrushchev's observations during the interview had wry humor in the light of the Hoover testimony. Khrushchev reiterated his contention that inspection is not necessary 1o a nuclear test ban by nations, and made it plain Soviet Russia would not agree to espionage in its territory. The FBI chief told the U S. Congressmen that the number of officials of Soviet-bloc countries assigned to this country has been increasing over the years, and added that "our investiga- tion and penetration of Soviet clandestine intelligence collection has clearly established that these official personnel assigned to the United State have been extensively used for espionage pur- poses." tounding quotes in the news this week. Some of them concerned the ceremony which occurred in the Paints des Nations at Ge- neva where 14 members of the conference on Laos signed the death warrant of that uphappy country The 25-minute ceremony was topped off by a lobster and champagne luncheon given by the Soviet and British co-chair- men of the conference to cele- brate the historic event. We can understand why the Soviets felt like celebrating, but the British--that we cannot understand. Said Prime Minister Mac- millan: "The conference has been able to show the world that difficult international prob- lems can be solved by discus- s-ion and mutual compro- mise." And in Washington, President Kennedy declared: "It is a heartening indica- tion that diffieult, and at times seemingly insoluble in- ternational problems can in fact be solved by patient di- plomacy." It isn't really so difficult. All that is required is never to say "nyet" to the Communists. But Nikita Khrushehev said the agreement on Laos repre- sented "a major victory for the policy of peaceful coexist- ence." And that makes sense. On the same day the con- ference concluded its busi- ness in the council chamber, disturbing reports issued from the Laotian capital. The charge' was made that investigation of fighting in the southern part of the country was blocked by pro-Communist Pathet Leo elements in the government. The fighting presumably took place between the conservative, anti-Communist troops of Gen- eral Nosavan and the pro-Red forces in Laos. They have not yet been integrated in 'accord- ance with the Geneva "com- promise." A cease-fire agreement has (Continued on Page 5) Nocturnal vigils will be kept throughout the night of Friday, August 3, and into the morning of Saturday, August 4, ia St. James Cathedral, Seattle, and St. Patrick Church, Tacoma.

Tucek VATICAN CITY, July 23, (NC)The Secretariat for Promoting Christian Unity, officially a small part of the preparations for the Second Vatican Council, may in fact prove to be an Lnstrument of one of its greatest effects. His Holiness Pope John XXIII'a first announcement in January, 1959, of his intention to call a council included his wish that it be "an invitation to the separated communities to unity." Yet a short time later, speak- body, but it is commonly ac- ing to a group of priests from Bologna, he said that the council's first task would be to attend to the Church's in- ternal affairs and.only after- wards could the Church give its attention directly to the de- sired unity of Christian church- es. In spite of the Pope's insis- tence that Christian unity, how- ever important, would not be the first concern of the council --a position that was echoed repeatedly by Augustin Card- inal Bea, president of the Sec- retariat-this one facet of the coming council has so captured the imagination and fired the hopes of the general public as to make many believe that this is the council's chief purpose. As a matter of fact, the members of the staff of the Secretariat f o r Promoting Christian Unity regard its function in preparation for the council as being consider- ably minor to its follow-up work once the council is over. Cardinal Bea, indicating this Named Observer FATHER John Sheerin, C.S.P., editor of The Cath- olic World, and Catholic Northwest Progress column- ist, and a French priest will be observers at a meet- ing of the Central Com- mittee of the World Council point in an Italian magazine article, said that where re- union is concerned "the council cannot be an end but rather a starting point." The secretariat, s t r i c t 1 y speaking, is a preparatory cepted that it will develop into something more than this. It has even been definitely re- marked by Cardinal Bee him- self that it will continue to function beyond the prepara- tory phase and will operate during the council as a kind of "clearing house" and liaison between the non-Catholic ob- servers and the council Fathers. No one can say definitely that the secretariat will coo- tinue to function after the (Continued on Page 2) Dominicans Elect New General TOULOUSEi France, July 23 (Radio, N.C.) --7 The new Master General of the Dominican Order is Father Aniceto Fernan- dez Alonso, O,P, 67, former su- perior of the Dominicans' Span- ish province. He succeeds Michael Cardinal - Browne, O.P., as superior gen- eral of close to 9,900 Dominican friars throughout the world and is the 82nd successor to St. Dominic. The election took place July 22 at a general chapter of the order at the modem priory of St. Thomas Aquinas here in Toulouse, where St. Dominic founded the order in 1206. One hundred and eighteen electors took part in the voting. They represented all 45 provinces of the order except those of Hun. gary and Czechoslovakia, where the Communist governments re. fused permission for the pro- vincials and their aides to make the trip. Despite earlier reports that the Polish government had refused travel permission, the Polish province was repre- sented. The four U.S. pro. vinces, with a total member- ship of. well over 1,200, were all represented. The Very Ray.
