The cut was sharply criticized by Rev. Antonio Melo Costa who heads the 20,000 members of Catholic farmers' union. Father Melo Costa said that the "low wages that are caus- ing hunger must be raised with better financing of the sugar enterprises" and later threatened strikes in 40 sugar produc- ing centers. The government then announced July 29 new financing for above the 17th parallel, and were then flown across coun- try by helicopter, "about 40 minutes' flight," to a point in- side Laps. From there they came on foot through the jungle and over the mountains into central Vietnam.

John Oonnelly OnOeOr?caan.nually, m any are MUGNANO DEL CAR- Today there seems to be DINALE, Italy (NC)--The name "Philomena" may be stricken from Church records, but in this little town near Naples where a body purportedly hers has been ven- erated since 1805, there is a "Never say die" attitude. Thou- sands are expecled to gather again this year on August 11 to keep her name alive on what was formerly her feast day. Official cult of St. Philomena was recognized by Pope Greg- ory XVI in 1837 and thence spread throughout Italy and the rest of Europe and eventually to Asia and America. Then in 1961, the Congregation of Riles expressed its conviction that there never was such a person and ordered the name stricken from official records and the feast dropped from the calen- dar, much to the chagrin of parishes dedicated to her and perhaps thousands of women and even some men named af- ter her. There had, of course, never been a formal process of can- onization for the young girl. Martyrs have often been de- dared saints almost automat- ically by the fact of martyr- dos. It all began in 1802 with the discovery of a body in the cata- combs of Priscilla near Rome, in a grave which carried a jum- bled inscription on three red bricks. Readjusting the bricks, it was possible to arrive at the inscription "Peace be with you Filumena." Added to this was the testimony of a glass phial discovered in the grave, pre- sumed to contain blood. Since such objects were regarded in antiquity as "sure signs of mar- tyrdom," the conclusion was reached that Philomena indeed was one of the early martyrs. Supporting evidence w a s added later, partleularlv the devotion shown her by St. .Tahn Vianne.v, the Cure of Ars and patron saint of par- ish priests, who claims to have had a vision of the yonn, martyr tnstruetin him something new in the air at Mugnano. "Authoritative sourc- es" report the case for the re- habilitation of the saint will be submilled in the near future to the Congregation of Rites for sludy, with the citation of the acts of the canonization of St. John Vianney and the testi- mony of the cure of Pauline Jaricot playing a prominent part. "How could she have been cured through the testimony of a saint who never existed?" they want to know. ']'he three red bricks would al- so come up for reexamination, they say. Opponenls of Philo- mena have maintained these bricks date from the second century and were later trans- A ferred in the fifth century toq the tomb of a poor girl--hence the body now at Mugnano. But Rev. Giuseppo Bona- venia, S.J., supported by the archaeologists P r a n d i and Mustillo, has arrived at a dif- ferent conclusion which seems to be supported by the so-far unpublished reports of another famous Jesuit ar- chaeologist -- whose name iB being withheld. According to this report, the bricks had been used for a previous tomb, there would be some trace of a second layer of plaster and also some dam- age to the edges of the bricks. Regarding the jumbled or- der of the bricks, the report suggests this as the mistake of an illiterate grave-digger and that it is a common oe- eurrenee on tombs in the catacombs. It is certainly not surprising, the report states, that the grave digger would not have known Latin, the language of the inscriptions. Will this report lead to a re- opening Of the case for Philo- mesa and a reversal of the congregation's ban? The con- gregation says definitely not. The people of Mugnano, who h a-v e restrained themselves thus far "out of deference to Pope John XXIII" in whos reign the ban arose, are no saying it is only a matter of time. SUZZANE HELPS YOUNg VATICAN PAVILION VISITOR. Assist at Vatican Pavilion NEW YORK -- Vatican Pavilion hostesses at the New York World's Fair, like Susan Hebron, above, assist visitors by answer- ing questions, giving descriptions and helping with tours. The 18 young women are chosen carefully from among some 2,000 applicants. Each girl is assigned to a specific area of the pa- vilion for a week at a time. They are supplemented each day by a staff of 25 volunteers. Uniforms worn by the hostesses have been described as a magenta one-piece dress with two inverted pink pleats. An el- bow-length cape is fastened to the dress with a gold pin of a design inspired by the papal coat-of-arms. Headgear is a "modi- fied bishop's hat." CRS Aids Indta Fire Victims NEW YORK (NC)-- The overseas relief agency of U. S. Catholics has provided food, clothing and other relief supplies to more than 2,000 families in India made homeless as the re- sult of fires touched off in factional fights among Communists. Reports from the diocese of Vijayawada said that 1,661 houses have been destroyed by the fires during the last month, leaving 2;57 families homeless. Factional fights among Com- munist pat'ty supporters, the reports said, led to touching off the fires. A thief Who V00/as Not Quilty YONG DONG, Korea (NC) -- Stealing food in this very poor section of Korea can be more like borrowing on credit. Father Joseph L Waters, M.M., of LaCrosse, Wis., reports that tliis has been the experience of the Sacred Heart Korean Sisters here. One evening the Sisters washed their rice and, as is cus- tomary, left it out in the yard overnight. When they awoke, the rice was gone. There were only a few grBins left on the level walk, and they were spread out in Korean characters which read, "Sorry for taking the rice. Will pay you back." two provinces the Viet Cong have extended and tightened their hold since the coup d'etat that overthrew the Ngo dish Diem government on Novem- ber 1. Buddhist attacks on Catholics in some villages, the campaign against officials of the fqLrner regime and the wholesale :changing 'o civil a n d military administration cleared the way for these com- munist gains. Some of the new authorities were either afraid to oppose the unruly elements who in- voked. Buddhism and the ,'rev- olution," or were their willing accomplices. Physical attacks on Catho- lics, such as were perpetrated last November and December are apparently not happening now. But the atmosphere of in- timidation persists, and people of doubtful loyalty who pushed their way to power in the vil- lages of that time are still in power. It cannot be denied that some Buddhist partisans, con- sciously or unconsciously, have been making the communists' work easier. The question is: Are some Buddhists looking for more "grievances" to exploit or are they trying to shield Commu- nist sympathizers and agents? Meanwhile a group of pro- fessors of the State University of Hue are sniping at the present government and at Father Paul Can van Luan university rector, in a weekly journal of opinion called Lap Truong (Viewpoint). The leader and organizer of the militant Buddhist in this area is the bonze Thich Tri Quang. He is a contributor to Lap Truong. The general com- manding the 1st Division, Gen. Nguyen canh Thi, actively sup- ports the publication and helps to distribute it. .+++ Scout Mass at Valley Forge APPROXIMATELY 10,000 Boy Scouts attend a field Mass during the Sixth National Jamboree encampment at Valley Forge, Pa. Celebrant was Archbishop John P. Cody of New Orleans, LB. Giving the sermon was Bishop William G. Conner of Greensburg, Pa., episcopal moderator of the National Catholic Committee on Scouting. Among those at- tending were Rev. Joseph Marquart of St. Luke's Parish, Seattle, who is archdiocesan scout chaplain. Included in his jamboree section were 26 Catholic scouts and seven leaders from King Cotmty among others from eight councils in the Archdiocese. The 1964 story of Valley Forge and its message to scouts and their leaders will be given by Father Marquart in words and pictures at the 15th annual Archdiocesan Scouters Conference and seventh annual Scouteree October 3.4 in CYO Camp Don Bosco.--(geligioua News Service Photo) ; ,a rates the 40 days of prayer and fast performed by St. Pat- rick on the bleak mountain.

Numerous special trains are run from Dublin and other main centers to Westport, a few miles from the starting point of the climb.

Pope John's Diary Shows His Humility In 1929, on the occasion of his 25th anniversary as a priest, the Catholic Digest reveals t h a t Pope John made this entry in his diary: "Countless priests already dead or still living after 25 years of priesthood have ac- complished wonders in the apos- tolate and the sanctification of souls. And I, what have I done? My Jesus, mer cyl But while I humble myself for the little or nothing I have achieved up to now, I raise up my eyes to- ward the future. There still remains light in front of me; there still remains the hope of doing some good. Therefore, I take up my staff again, which from now on will be the staff of old age, and I go forward to meet whatever the good Lord wishes for me." This year marked the 6Oth anniversary of the first climb by Archbishop Joseph Walsh of Tuam as a newly ordained priest. His first Mass on the summit was celebrated exactly 50 years ago to the day July 27. Today he no longer makes the climb, but greets the pilgrimB at the foot of the mountain and presides at Mass in Westport when they return from the mountain top. In a special sermon this year, Archbishop Welsh referred to the aims of the Second Vati- can Council. Speaking of Christ- inn unity, he said: Pope Prays For Nations In Turmoil CASTEL GANDOLFO, Italy (NC)--Pope Paul VI led visitors at his summer villa here July 19 in reciting the Angelus and also prayed that nations with a responsibility for humanity will not be turned aside from their responsibility by their own internal disturbances. It was his first Sunday noon appearance before the public since his arrival at this hill country vacation spot south- east of Rome several .days earlier. Pope Paul first asked pray- ers for Italy, which he said "has such a need for a strong, just, good and workable social order." Without b e I n g specific, the Pope then asked for prayers for "other countries whieh are still troubled by so many internal upheavals, lest they lose the sense of their mission of peace and of jus- tice in the midst of human- ity." The Pope also sent his greet- ings to those in St. Peter's Square in Vatican City who were listening to him over a telephone-loudspeaker hookup.
