I I 10,750 Feet Up] eCYONa00amakee ! Hikers Conquer Mount Baker An 11 a.m. Mass was celebrated by Father Richard Mitchell, the climb chaplain from Seattle's Our Lady of the Lake Parish. With hearts full of thanks and excitement the group offered its victory to God. The climbing party left the CYO's mountain hide-a-way, Camp D on B o s c o, July 23 and headed for base camp at Schrieber's Meadows near Concrete, Wash. After three days of practice the group made an advance camp at the mountain's 5,500 foot level. I (i At 3:30 a.m. that Sunday, the climbers began their as- sault.

The attractive terrazzo-type floor had been made by Jes- uits and layworkers from crushed rock, mixed with metal fragments to make it distinc- tive. The high windows bordering jlji/ae chapel contained panes of i:lolored and clear glass. The aisles and back of the al- tar were of painted concrete block.

"Early in July, for the first time since 1954, a Viet Cong (Communist) unit larger than company size operated in this area," an American military advisor serving with the 1st Division of the Vietnamese army, said here. "We noticed an increase in Viet Cong 'in- cidents' from July 1. This cul- minated on the 5th and 6th, especially in the attack on Nam Dong, Vietnamese Special Forces camp, about 38 miles from here. The attacking force was a reinforced Viet Cong battalion." This 1st Division area, where Communist attacks on out- posts and villages and sabotage attempts have notably multi- plied during July, embraces two provinces. These are Thua Thien, of which Hue, the an- cient capital, is chief town, and Quang Tri, which is cut across the top by the 17th parallel dividing south (and central) Vietnam from the Communist- ruled north. Communist attackers reached the outskirts of but they did succeed in scar- ing the population. For this recent offensive Viet Cong units in the area have been reinforced by soldiers sent from North Vietnam, ac- longed originally to the 304th and 324th Divisions of the North Vietnam "People's Ar- my." They were sent south last May "to liberate the people," (Continued on Page 2) Mother Mary Philofhea To Receive Medal NORMANDY, Mo. (NC)--Mother Mary Philothea, dean of Seattle Uni.versity's College of Sister Forma- tion, will receive the Mother Seton Medal from Marillac College at a special convocation here Au- gust 22. The medal is awarded annually for "providing professional leadership for religious women engaged in the pursuit of ex- cellence in the fields of education, nursing and social work. "Mother Philothea," according to the citation, "by her pioneer work in the Sister Formation Movement and in estab- lishing in 1957 Providence Heights College of Sister Formation, now a constituent unit of Seattle University, did eminently qualify for this honor." A native of Washington, Mother Philothea was born in Aberdeen and lived in Seattle since she was eight years of age. She was Provincial of the Sisters of Charity of Providence, Sacred Heart Province, from 1952 to 1958; and head of the National College of Sister Formation for two terms, from 1957 to 1959. CASTEL GANDOLFO-- The title of Pope Paul's first encyclical is 'Eccles- tam Suam' (His Church), and could be s u b t it 1 ed 'The Paths of the Church,' the Pontiff revealed at a general audience here. The document is dated Aug- ust 6, Feast of the Transfig- uration of Christ, and will be released next week. The Pope said that the en- cyclical will be exhortatory rather then doctrinal in nature, since he doesn't want to an- ticipate the declarations of the Council. It will deal with three principal aspects of the Church, he said: its conscience, its re- newal, and its dialogue with the world. He explained that the section on the conscience of the Church will deal with its spiritual path or what nourishes the Church. The chapter on renewal will deal with the Church's moral path, or the ascetic, practical and canonical steps of the Church, he revealed.

Jubilee For Archbishop At Hand By Fred Cordova There are three signifi- cant dates in the August calendar: the 26th, the 27th and the 30th. Color them silver. Together, these dates make up three days of celebrating the Silver Episcopal Jubilee of the Most Reverend Thomas A. Con- nelly, first Archbishop of Se- attle, first Metropolitan of the Province of Seattle and the fifth Bishop of the then Diocese of Seattle. It was 25 years ago on the feast of St. Bartholomew, August 24, 1939, that the Shepherd of this Archdiocese had been consecrated Titular Bishop of Sila and Auxiliary Bishop of San Francisco. En- tire San Francisco went over to St. Mary's Cathedral to see the first of her native sons receive the full powers of the priesthood and become a successor of the Apostles. The celebrations these three days, marking the silver anni- versary of that event, will be just as big in Seattle--his See city for 16 years. A pontifical Mass will be sung at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 26, in St. James Cathedral and will be attended by scores of prelates, abbots, priests, the Religious and the laity, includ- ing Archbishop Connolly's sis- ters and brother and their fam- ilies. Luncheon for the clergy will follow at 1:30 p.m. that day in the Spanish Ballroom of the Olympic Hotel. A dinner to be tendered to the Archbishop by pastors of the Archdiocese will be served at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 27, in the Grand Ballroom of the Olympic Hotel. A recep- tion will precede this dinner at 6:30 p.m. in the adjoining Spanish Ballroom. Another reception to afford everyone an opportunity to meet Archbishop Connolly will be held from 2 to 5 p.m. Sun- day, Aug. 30, again in the Grand Ballroom, This public event is being sponsored by the lay organizations of the Arch- diocese.
